The siege of Jerusalem



As all the Apostles had been killed by the time of the siege of Jerusalem, except for John who remained, we have no written record from them, but history does record these amazing events, so amazing, I wanted to open this study with them, as it seems many are not aware they actually happened. Everything Jesus said about this follows, including a very revealing parable.

There was great peace and prosperity in all Judea before the persecutions, and before the war began. This is about 62 AD, not long after Jesus was sent to Jerusalem, near 30AD. This was within that same generation:

"But, what is still more terrible, there was one Jesus, the son of Ananus, a plebeian and a husbandman, who, four years before the war began, and at a time when the city was in very great peace and prosperity, came to that feast whereon it is our custom for every one to make tabernacles to God in the temple, began on a sudden to cry aloud, "A voice from the east, a voice from the west, a voice from the four winds, a voice against Jerusalem and the holy house, a voice against the bridegrooms and the brides, and a voice against this whole people!" This was his cry, as he went about by day and by night, in all the lanes of the city." - "Wars of the Jews", Book 6 ch. 5

This was before the siege of Jerusalem, roughly 66.5 - 70 A.D. Jerusalem was trodden by the gentiles, and the temple in Jerusalem was made desolate. The siege of Jerusalem persisted roughly 42 months. It was much more than just a war, It was an act of God. These amazing events are recorded in "Wars of the Jews", recorded 74/75 AD By Flavius Josephus. He was a Jewish priest and historian.

HISTORICAL EVENTS OF THE SIEGE OF JERUSALEM:






  • For seven years leading up to 73AD, 1,337,490 perished
  • Forty two months was the siege, roughly 66.5 - 70 A.D
  • A star appeared in the likeness of a giant sword in the sky, lasting a whole year
  • A comet was seen, lasting a week
  • There was a massive earthquake, more than 8000 died
  • The sea roared and bodies of merchants washed up for weeks
  • An army of horsemen appeared in the clouds!
  • Visions of angelic beings were seen all over Judea
  • A frightful noise was heard, a pop that sounded like the universe exploded
  • A heifer gave birth to a lamb on the temple grounds


    And as the Temple was made desolate:
  • A multitude of voices were heard born from heaven saying "LET US REMOVE HENCE!".
  • The massive gates of the temple swung open seemingly on their own accord, welcoming the invaders. Angels were seen near.
  • Tens of thousands were killed.
  • Not one stone of the temple was left upon another because there was gold between each one, and the Roman army pried apart each one for the gold.

    Now if this happened today, don't tell me you would not think it was an act of God! Truth is, it was an act of God, and the day had overcome those in darkness, who rejected Christ, as a thief. While all the first century saints who remained, who had not yet been killed, had received Jesus' warning to flee the city when they seen Jerusalem surrounded by armies, those who rejected Christ did not. This blindness is recorded in history, in the "Wars of the Jews"...

    "Now there was then a great number of false prophets suborned by the tyrants to impose on the people, who denounced this to them, that they should wait for deliverance from God" - Wars of the Jews, book 6 ch. 5

    "Thus were the miserable people persuaded by these deceivers, and such as belied God himself; while they did not attend nor give credit to the signs that were so evident, and did so plainly foretell their future desolation, but, like men infatuated, without either eyes to see or minds to consider, did not regard the denunciations that God made to them."- - Wars of the Jews, book 6 ch. 5

    Flashback, about 40 years earlier, Jesus is standing in the temple in Jerusalem scathing the Pharisees:

    Mat 23:37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!
    Mat 23:38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.
    Mat 23:39 For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.
    Mat 24:1 And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to show him the buildings of the temple.
    Mat 24:2 And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.

    Not one stone of the temple was left upon another, just like Jesus said.


    JUDGMENT BEGAN WITH HIS PEOPLE

    Hear a very revealing parable about the generation whom the Son of God was sent. Hear why his chosen people (husbandmen) were to be judged, and even when...

    Mat 21:33 Hear another parable: There was a certain householder, which planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and digged a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country:
    Mat 21:34 And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it.
    Mat 21:35 And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned another.
    Mat 21:36 Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and they did unto them likewise.
    Mat 21:37 But last of all he sent unto them his son, saying, They will reverence my son.
    Mat 21:38 But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and let us seize on his inheritance.
    Mat 21:39 And they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and slew him.
    Mat 21:40 When the lord therefore of the vineyard cometh, what will he do unto those husbandmen?
    Mat 21:41 They say unto him, He will miserably destroy those wicked men, and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen, which shall render him the fruits in their seasons.
    Mat 21:42 Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the Scriptures, "The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes"?
    Mat 21:43 Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.
    Mat 21:44 And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.
    **Mat 21:45 And when the chief priests and Pharisees had heard his parables, they perceived that he spake of them.
    Mat 21:46 But when they sought to lay hands on him, they feared the multitude, because they took him for a prophet.

    (Hear the parables of Christ, they were often about the chief priests and Pharisees, and they knew it, they wanted to kill Him every time Jesus spoke to them in parables.)

    They, the chief priests and Pharisees, workers of the Temple, perceived that Jesus spoke of them. I would say those fellers perceived pretty good! Jesus was a Jew, and the Jews were His chosen people ("Husbandmen"). The prophets before Christ were the ("servants") sent from God. Jesus was the ("son") of God, sent from God, His Father, the ("certain householder who sent his son"), sent to them like a groom coming for His bride, but they killed Him. So as the Apostles said was right, as Jesus said, the householder, God, was furious, then rightfully sent out "other husbandmen", Christ's Apostles-Disciples into the streets and invited strangers (The Gentiles).

    God kept sending prophets unto his people, but they kept killing them. This had gone on since the days of Moses, to Isaiah's days, to Jeremiah's days, to the days of David, and for almost 600 years since Daniel pleaded to God for vengeance upon those who killed the prophets, this had been going on for an awful long time! Finally, God sent His beloved Son. That is what the parable was about, and how the kingdom of God was taken from the chosen husbandmen, the Jews, and was then offered to strangers, the Gentiles.

    Jesus had said:

    John 12:31-32 Now is the judgment of this world: Now shall the prince of this world be cast out. And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.

    And Jesus did not say this yesterday. Is it too much to say now was then? All I ask is that we hear His words, realize when He spoke these words, and to whom. Jesus spoke more of this as He stood in the temple scathing the Pharisees, saying...

    Luke 11:50-51 That the blood of all the prophets, which was shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of this generation; From the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zacharias, which perished between the altar and the temple: verily I say unto you, It shall be required of this generation.

    Just as the parable reveals, just as Jesus said over and over in many ways, the wrath of God was to fall like a stone upon that same generation whom the Son of God was sent, charging that generation with the blood of all the prophets. Again, Jesus is standing in the temple scathing the Pharisees and said..

    Mat 23:37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!
    Mat 23:38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.
    Mat 23:39 For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.
    Mat 24:1 And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to show him the buildings of the temple.
    Mat 24:2 And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.

    And the blood of all the prophets was required of His generation, and history records this great and terrible tribulation, the wrath of God falling like a stone upon the workers of the temple, just as the parable revealed the workers of the temple KNEW Jesus was speaking of them.


    THE GOSPEL OF THE STONE

    When Jesus spoke, He spoke in the first century, not yesterday. Jesus was not sitting down writing a book to people thousands of years in the future. Jesus was not talking right over their heads. Try this, Imagine Jesus walking around talking to people, warning the many, workers of the temple, and others, and teaching His disciples, saying...

    (Luk 21:22) for these are days of vengeance, to fulfill all that is written.

    Matthew 10:34 "Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I have not come to bring peace, but a sword.

    Mat 13:40 Just as the weeds are gathered and burned with fire, so will it be at the close of the age.

    Mat 24:25-28 See, I have told you beforehand. So, if they say to you, 'Look, he is in the wilderness,' do not go out. If they say, 'Look, he is in the inner rooms,' do not believe it. For as the lightning comes from the east and shines as far as the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. Wherever the corpse is, there the vultures will gather.

    Luk 23:24 So Pilate decided that their demand should be granted.
    Luk 23:25 He released the man who had been thrown into prison for insurrection and murder, for whom they asked, but he delivered Jesus over to their will.
    Luk 23:26 And as they led him away, they seized one Simon of Cyrene, who was coming in from the country, and laid on him the cross, to carry it behind Jesus.
    Luk 23:27 And there followed him a great multitude of the people and of women who were mourning and lamenting for him.
    Luk 23:28 But turning to them Jesus said, "Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me, but weep for yourselves and for your children.
    Luk 23:29 For behold, the days are coming when they will say, 'Blessed are the barren and the wombs that never bore and the breasts that never nursed!'
    Luk 23:30 Then they will begin to say to the mountains, 'Fall on us,' and to the hills, 'Cover us.'
    Luk 23:31 For if they do these things when the wood is green, what will happen when it is dry?"

    Luk 21:20 "But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation has come near.
    Luk 21:21 Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, and let those who are inside the city depart, and let not those who are out in the country enter it,
    Luk 21:22 for these are days of vengeance, to fulfill all that is written.
    Luk 21:23 Alas for women who are pregnant and for those who are nursing infants in those days! For there will be great distress upon the earth and wrath against this people.
    Luk 21:24 They will fall by the edge of the sword and be led captive among all nations, and Jerusalem will be trampled underfoot by the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.

    The kingdom of God was taken from his people and given to the Gentiles. Jerusalem was trodden of the Gentiles. The time of the Gentiles was accomplished in the first century.

    Mat 16:27 For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.
    Mat 16:28 Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom.

    Joh 21:22 Jesus said to him, "If it is my will that he remain until I come, what is that to you? You follow me!"
    Joh 21:23 So the saying spread abroad among the brothers that this disciple was not to die; yet Jesus did not say to him that he was not to die, but, "If it is my will that he remain until I come, what is that to you?"

    Mat 13:41-43 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out
    of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. (43)* Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.*

    (Matthew 3:7) But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, O brood of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?

    (Luke 3:7) Then said he to the multitude that came forth to be baptized of him, O brood of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?

    Did you imagine Jesus walking around and speaking these things to his people in the first century, not sitting down writing a book? It IS about Judea, Jerusalem, and His generation. That is the gospel truth. After all, Jesus did answer them when they asked when would this be. Jesus said plainly, "This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled".


    Let's look at the context of each time Jesus said "this generation", thats all I ask...

    (Luke 17:25) But first must he suffer many things, and be rejected of this generation.

    Jesus suffered many things and was rejected by His generation. This can mean no other than His generation. Jesus said "this generation" many times in many different ways, not just once. Here are some examples...Hear His words:

    (Mat 11:16-19) But whereunto shall I liken this generation? It is like unto children sitting in the markets, and calling unto their fellows, And saying, We have piped unto you, and ye have not danced; we have mourned unto you, and ye have not lamented. For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, He hath a devil. The Son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a man gluttonous, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners. But wisdom is justified of her children.

    Jesus said "what shall I liken this generation", saying John came and He came, yet both were rejected. John came in the first century, Jesus came in the first century, Jesus was clearly speaking of His generation, the generation of the first century.

    Again:

    (Luk 11:50-51) That the blood of all the prophets, which was shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of this generation; From the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zacharias, which perished between the altar and the temple: verily I say unto you, It shall be required of this generation.

    Jesus was scathing the Pharisees and said the blood of all the prophets "shall be required of this generation". Jesus made this very clear to them. He came with a sword. He came with judgment. The axe was about to be laid to the trees, upon his wicked generation, the same generation that rejected Him.

    (Mat 12:41) The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: because they repented at the preaching of Jonah; and, behold, a greater than Jonah is here.

    Jesus said "this generation" would be judged, because He was there amongst them and they rejected Him. Jesus was there speaking greater things than Jonah. But did all the children of Israel choose to hear Him? No. Of course Jesus was not saying the men of Ninevah who lived in Jonas time would come back to life and judge them. That is to say the judgment would come from the hand of one who chose to hear Him, the Gentiles. The "Nations" (Gentiles) all around them. Jesus was clearly speaking of His generation, the same who repented not, the generation of the first century.

    (Mat 12:42) The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here.

    Jesus said "this generation" would be judged, because He was there amongst them and they rejected Him. Jesus there speaking greater things than Solomon. But did all the children of Israel choose to hear him? No. Only a remnant believed in him. Jesus said the Queen of the south traveled very far to hear the words of Solomon, and we know from the OT that this was "Sheba" who went to Solomon, she was the Queen of the South. Of course Jesus was not saying Sheba would come back to life and Judge them. The "Queen of the South" represented those who heard a message and believed, like Sheba, That is to say that judgment would come from the hand of one who chose to hear Him, the Gentiles. The "Nations" (Gentiles) all around them.

    Again, Jesus was clearly speaking of His generation, the same who repented not, the generation of the first century.

    (Mar 8:12) And he sighed deeply in his spirit, and saith, Why doth this generation seek after a sign? verily I say unto you, There shall no sign be given unto this generation.

    Jesus said that the only sign His generation would see was similar to the sign of Jonah, that as Jonah was in the belly of a whale three days, after three days He would rise from the dead. The sign was given to them in the first century, "this generation" was in the first century...

    (Luk 11:30) For as Jonah was a sign unto the Ninevites, so shall also the Son of man be to this generation.


    Jesus was rejected by His generation, the generation of the first century. When Jesus said "This generation" in this scripture, and more than 10 times, He was speaking of His generation. That is the gospel truth. Jesus spoke of His generation almost 25 times saying just "generation" as well. Jesus even spoke of His generation in many PARABLES too, often times, almost every time, the parables were about the Pharisees, and they knew it!

    Plainly:

    (Mat 23:36) TRULY, I SAY TO YOU, ALL THESE THINGS WILL COME UPON THIS GENERATION.

    (Mat 24:34) Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.

    (Mar 13:30) Verily I say unto you, that this generation shall not pass, till all these things be done.

    (Luk 21:32) Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled.

    (I know what your thinking. See The figgy fixation of 1948)


    Why His generation?


    [Isaiah 53:7-8] He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth; like a lamb that is led to the slaughter, and like a sheep that before its shearers is silent, so he opened not his mouth. By oppression and judgment he was taken away; and as for his generation, who considered that he was cut off out of the land of the living, stricken for the transgression of my people?

    [Acts 8:33] In his humiliation justice was denied him. Who can describe his generation? For his life is taken away from the earth...

    That the light had come and was rejected of that generation was the condemnation of His generation:

    Jesus said:
    John 3:19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

    Jesus said:
    (Luk 21:22) for these are days of vengeance, to fulfill all that is written.

    The time had come for the wrath of God to be poured out, for the blood of ALL the prophets. "Who can describe His generation"?, the generation of the Messiah. Jesus did quite well, saying "you"- "faithless and twisted"..."evil and adulterous"..."evil"..."adulterous and sinful"...and "faithless" generation. That about says it all. Life in first century Roman Empire was totally twisted.

    That's why. This was the condemnation of his people and his generation. Jesus said:

    John 3:19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

    Did they stumble that they might fall? May it never be! GOD did not "forsake" his people! If a Jew will call upon the Father for salvation through Christ, that Jew will be saved from eternal death. God did judge his people, and they received thier reward, double the reward she had in her cup for the blood of all the prophets. After the whole house and the "holy house" and all Judea was cleansed with fire, she received her pardon, and redemption was to follow, just like Jesus said...

    Luk 21:22 For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.
    Luk 21:23 But woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck, in those days! for there shall be great distress in the land, and wrath upon this people.
    Luk 21:24 And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.
    Luk 21:28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your *redemption [G629] draweth nigh.

    *G629
    ἀπολύτρωσις
    apolutrōsis
    ap-ol-oo'-tro-sis
    From a compound of G575 and G3083; (the act) ransom in full, that is, (figuratively) riddance, or (specifically) Christian salvation: - deliverance, redemption.


    Redemption...As was prophesied by Isaiah concerning John the Baptist, Elijah, coming before the day of the Lord, and the Christ, and the judgment and warfare of the whole people of his generation within Jerusalem...

    Isaiah 40:1-3 Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith your God. Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem, and cry unto her, that her warfare is accomplished, that her iniquity is pardoned: for she hath received of the LORD'S hand double for all her sins. The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.

    Think of the "desert" as Judea in the first century, a wasteland with no shepherd, and the "highway" as the gospel of the kingdom of God which John the baptiser was sent from God to prepare God's people to receive, that same gospel preached by one who was to come after John the baptizer, the LORD Jesus....

    Matthew 3:1-3 In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea, And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.* For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight. [Isaiah 40:3]

    Mark 1:14-15 Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.

    So, "her warfare is accomplished, her iniquity is pardoned: for she hath received of the LORD'S hand double for all her sins". If this has not come to pass, why do many call Jerusalem blessed, why do many tell the Jews to go to Jerusalem, to safety? It is well to say, but only if you realize that her warfare was accomplished!

    GOD did not forsake his people! God judged his people, put them through His consuming fire and they were pardoned. Why was the judgment to be so fierce? Double?

    Rev 18:6 Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double.

    She was rewarded in the manner she rewarded the Messiah. Why double?

    Rev 18:24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.

    Who?

    Mat 23:34 Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city:
    Mat 23:35 That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zechariah son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar.
    Mat 23:36 Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation.
    Mat 23:37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!
    Mat 23:38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.
    (cont)
    Mat 24:1 And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to show him the buildings of the temple.
    Mat 24:2 And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.

    Who was charged with the blood of all the prophets? JERUSALEM.

    And why do so many fail to see that the Temple in Jerusalem that Jesus was looking at is not there no more? Not one stone of the temple was left upon another, just like Jesus said.

    So Pray for Jerusalem, for she has received from the Lords hand double for her sins, and her iniquity has been pardoned. By 70 A.D. Jerusalem was trodden by the Gentiles, His people fell by the sword and were taken captive, and the "holy house" was made desolate just as Jesus said. The religious system was awful.

    But GOD did not forsake his people! If a Jew will call upon the Father for salvation through Christ, that Jew will be saved from eternal death. But there is no "Jewish clause" for salvation without Christ. There is now way to the father but through Christ.

    In Closing, I don't think many have seen this Temple in Jerusalem that Jesus was looking at as His Apostles asked Him, "Master, do you see these things! You should read this ancient DESCRIPTION OF THE TEMPLE.

    __


    Jerry's final thought:


    Judgment day began with his people. His people lived in a certain region (ghay), not over the whole wide world (kosmos), and for a certain reason. The days of vengeance were upon his people in late AD 60's - early 70's, and it was a ransom in full.

    Israel was cleansed and pardoned. It marked the time of redemption through Christ, salvation, the putting away of the former arrangement, and the putting away of the temple as the abode of God with his people only, to a new arrangement, a new Jerusalem, which is above, and is the mother of us all, prepared as the bride of Christ.

    And so it is in this new age in Christ, the dead who's names are not written in the lambs book of life are resurrected into judgment, and the dead who's names are written in the lambs book of life are resurrected into eternal life. Only the dead are in need of resurrection, and only the dead are judged now. As long as a human is caught up in the breath of God in the land of the living, you have breath to repent, and if you are sincere, you can call upon the Father and ask for mercy and ask that through Christ you may be pardoned and forgiven of your sins. It is a fair request of any living man, and God is totally fair and just.

    And so it is, if a Jew will call upon the LORD for salvation through Christ, that Jew will be saved from eternal death. Unfortunately, there is no Jewish clause for salvation without Christ.

    And because eternal life is the promise, there is no more death. How could there be if eternal life is the promise?

    John 11:25-26 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?

    What now?

    John 14:23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.
