Mystery of the 2 Goats & a Warning to the Nation

Yom Kippur is the holiest day of the year of the Jewish calendar. It falls in late September or early October. This is where there is atonement and repentance for sins.

The 10 Days of Awe or Repentance begins on Rosh Hashanah, the Feast of Trumpets, and ends on Yom Kippur.

The Ten Days of Repentance are seen as an opportunity for change. And since the extremes of complete righteousness and complete wickedness are few and far between, Rosh Hashanah functions, for the majority of people, as the opening of a trial that extends until Yom Kippur. It is an unusual trial. Most trials are intended to determine responsibility for past deeds. This one, however, has an added dimension: determining what can be done about future deeds. The Ten Days of Repentance are crucial to the outcome of the trial, since our verdict is determined both by our attitude toward our misdeeds and by our attempts to rectify them by changing ourselves. (myjewishlearning.com)

Isn't that interesting a trial…when we see so much of that in the forefront right now?

However, I want to focus on Yom Kippur for a moment.

Leviticus 16:5
And he shall take from the congregation of the children of Israel two kids of the goats as a sin offering, and one ram as a burnt offering.

Leviticus 16:7-10
He shall take the two goats and present them before the Lord at the door of the tabernacle of meeting. 8 Then Aaron shall cast lots for the two goats: one lot for the Lord and the other lot for the scapegoat. 9 And Aaron shall bring the goat on which the Lord’s lot fell, and offer it as a sin offering. 10 But the goat on which the lot fell to be the scapegoat shall be presented alive before the Lord, to make atonement upon it, and to let it go as the scapegoat into the wilderness.

Leviticus 16:15-19
15 “Then he shall kill the goat of the sin offering, which is for the people, bring its blood inside the veil, do with that blood as he did with the blood of the bull, and sprinkle it on the mercy seat and before the mercy seat. 16 So he shall make atonement for the Holy Place, because of the uncleanness of the children of Israel, and because of their transgressions, for all their sins; and so he shall do for the tabernacle of meeting which remains among them in the midst of their uncleanness. 17 There shall be no man in the tabernacle of meeting when he goes in to make atonement in the Holy Place, until he comes out, that he may make atonement for himself, for his household, and for all the assembly of Israel. 18 And he shall go out to the altar that is before the Lord, and make atonement for it, and shall take some of the blood of the bull and some of the blood of the goat, and put it on the horns of the altar all around. 19 Then he shall sprinkle some of the blood on it with his finger seven times, cleanse it, and consecrate[b] it from the [c]uncleanness of the children of Israel.

So two kids of the goats were taken, 2 sons of goats. They must be identical, the 2 kid goats taken. The high priest then reaches into an urn and pulls out 2 lots and each lot has a different Hebrew word inscribed on it. The high priest then placed one lot on the head of the goat to his right, and the other lot on the head of the goat to his left. One stone identified the goat that would die as the sacrifice for the sins of the people. The other stone identified the goat that would be let go into the wilderness.

Before any sacrifice could occur, there had to be a presentation of the two kid goats before the people of Israel by the high priest who was the high authority figure. Who represented God’s law. When the two kid goats were presented before the people the determining of the lots occurred, which determined their fate.

In the Book of Esther, we see the casting of lots by Haman to determine the day of the Jew's destruction and that day the 13 of Adar, being written and SEALED with the kings' mark, kind of like the mark being put on the goats that sealed their fate, and that edict was then sent out amongst the provinces that the Jews would be destroyed on that day. The King, Ahasuerus, who represents the law of the land was manipulated by Haman to do so, which means Haman was determining the fate of the Jews, the goats, when he was not in a position of authority before God to do so which is a man reason you see a divine reversal, because the lot was being put upon the head of a Jewish nation, it was not Yom Kippur, and Haman according to Levitical law had no authority to cast a lot that only the high priest could cast, make sense? So when Esther and Haman, just the 2 of them, go before King Ahasuerus who represents the law, it was like the two goats being presented by the high priest. One would die for the sins of the people, and one would be let go.

Esther's name, Hadassah means righteousness, her name was changed to Esther which means hidden. Hidden righteousness–remember the fact she was Jewish and hidden from the King. Remember Esther is representing Mordechai, whom Haman wanted to hang on a gallows, and the Jewish people.

Mordechai means servant of Marduk who was a Babylonian god having to do with wisdom and victory.

Haman's name means to rage or be turbulent and favorite of Ahasuerus until he was rejected and was set to die.

So you have righteousness and rage before King Ahasuerus.

You have Mordechai, servant of the most High God.

You have Haman, servant of the most high king.

Esther represents Mordechai and the Jewish people.

Ultimately, the Jewish people were released and Haman died. Do you see the pattern?

Now before we get to what is currently happening we have to go to the New Testament where Pilate presents Jesus, Yeshua, and Barabbas before the people during Passover.

John 18:19-24
The high priest then asked Jesus about His disciples and His doctrine.
20 Jesus answered him, “I spoke openly to the world. I always taught in synagogues and in the temple, where [d]the Jews always meet, and in secret I have said nothing. 21 Why do you ask Me? Ask those who have heard Me what I said to them. Indeed they know what I said.” 22 And when He had said these things, one of the officers who stood by struck[e] Jesus with the palm of his hand, saying, “Do You answer the high priest like that?”
23 Jesus answered him, “If I have spoken evil, bear witness of the evil; but if well, why do you strike Me?” 24 Then Annas sent Him bound to Caiaphas the high priest.
Now remember the high priest is the one who cast lots for the two kid goats, the sons of, and determines their fate.

Matthew 27:11-26
Now Jesus stood before the governor. And the governor asked Him, saying, “Are You the King of the Jews?” Jesus said to him, “It is as you say.” 12 And while He was being accused by the chief priests and elders, He answered nothing. 13 Then Pilate said to Him, “Do You not hear how many things they testify against You?” 14 But He answered him not one word, so that the governor marveled greatly.

Taking the Place of Barabbas
15 Now at the feast the governor was accustomed to releasing to the multitude one prisoner whom they wished. 16 And at that time they had a notorious prisoner called [b]Barabbas. 17 Therefore, when they had gathered together, Pilate said to them, “Whom do you want me to release to you? Barabbas, or Jesus who is called Christ?” 18 For he knew that they had handed Him over because of envy. 19 While he was sitting on the judgment seat, his wife sent to him, saying, “Have nothing to do with that just Man, for I have suffered many things today in a dream because of Him.” 20 But the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitudes that they should ask for Barabbas and destroy Jesus. 21 The governor answered and said to them, “Which of the two do you want me to release to you?” They said, “Barabbas!” 22 Pilate said to them, “What then shall I do with Jesus who is called Christ?” They all said to him, “Let Him be crucified!” 23 Then the governor said, “Why, what evil has He done?” But they cried out all the more, saying, “Let Him be crucified!” 24 When Pilate saw that he could not prevail at all, but rather that a [c]tumult was rising, he took water and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, “I am innocent of the blood of this [d] just Person.

You see to it.” It was the HIGH Priest that convinced the crowd.

Keep this in mind, the high priest determines the lot Pilot sits in the seat of judgment and presents 2 sons, who are identical in a way, Jesus and Barabbas.

So Jesus, the Messiah had to be 1 of the 2 lives that were presented before the people in order to be chosen as the sacrifice, and according to this mystery having to do with the 2 goats, the high priest and the people of Israel, the other life had to be let go.

25 And all the people answered and said, “His blood be on us and on our children.” 26 Then he released Barabbas to them; and when he had [e]scourged Jesus, he delivered Him to be crucified.

So what happens, the crowd yells, “give us Barabbas”!

And the crowd yells pertaining to Jesus, the other life, “crucify him” Let Barabbas go and let the lot of dying for the sins of the people be placed upon Jesus.
According to this ancient ceremony in Leviticus, the two goats or lives had to be identical. Jesus, Yeshua, the Messiah was the son of God or the Son of the Father.

Barabbas’s name has an identical meaning. Barabbas comes from 2 Hebrew words, first bar which means son, and next Abba which means father, SON OF THE FATHER.

You have 2 sons of the father standing before the people just like the 2 kid goats, the sons of the father goats. Passover begins the 10 days of repentance which leads to Yom Kippur when the lots were cast before the people determining the lives of these goats.

2 lives were put on trial before the people.

Keeping this in mind–let's go to what is happening now.

Meaning of name
Donald- world ruler
A World Ruler Drum

Meaning of the name 
Joseph: he will add
Biden: from the shadow valley; button maker

Let's look at Donald Trump’s Father.

His name is Frederick Christ Trump.

Frederick means peaceful ruler, Christ is the Prince of Peace and means anointed one, and Trump means drum.

Peaceful ruler that is anointed, and you beat a drum and it makes a loud sound, drums make noise.

Joe Biden’s father
Joseph Biden Senior: he will add from the shadow valley In the shadow valley is where death is according to Psalm 23.

Psalm 23:4-5
Even though I walk through the [d]valley of the shadow of death,
I fear no [e]evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. 5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You [f]have anointed my head with oil;
My cup overflows.

Both have been presidents for 1 term each.
Biden senior, Joe’s father, became involved in real estate and a real estate agent, Donald Trump's father was a real estate developer.

So both the fathers of Donald Trump and Joseph Biden were in the real estate business.

Are you starting to see the identicalness?

This is the mystery of the two goats that have been repeated throughout history.

The term scapegoat

On Yom Kippur, the ancient Hebrews would sacrifice one goat for the Lord and lead another one into the wilderness bearing the sins of the people. The ceremony is described in Leviticus, where it is said that one lot shall be cast for the Lord and one for "Azazel." Modern scholars usually interpret Azazel as being the name of a demon living in the desert, but ancient biblical translators thought Azazel referred to the goat itself, apparently confusing it with the Hebrew phrase ez ozel, meaning "goat that departs." The mistranslation was carried through Greek and Latin into a 16th-century English translation, where the word for the goat was rendered as scapegoote; that is, "goat that escapes." The extended senses of scapegoat we use today evolved from this biblical use. (merriam webster)

So one son bears the sins of the people and is let go, and one son is killed as a sacrifice.

If we look at this in the context of what is happening now, there is not only an election there is a trial.

Donald Trump is on trial and in many ways being punished because of the people who voted for him and you have Joseph Biden whose sins have stacked up and what he has so corruptly done for decades with China, Ukraine, his son Hunter Biden and it looks like he is being let go, he is getting away with it.

However, those lots have to be cast…Those lots are about to be cast.

You have the presentation of two identical in a way, both presidents for 1 term. They both ran against each other for president in 2020 and now are doing the same in 2024 (identical back-to-back election years) both of their fathers were in real estate, and both had sons on trial this year. Their middle names are Joseph Robinette, Robinette means famed, bright, or shining. Donald John, John means God is gracious, God remembers. God is the giver of light so there is a similarity in their middle names. Biden is 6 feet–Trump is 6 feet 3 inches, so their height is very close.

So you have some very similar and identical features and characteristics between these two men.

These 2 goats were SIN offerings for the SINS of the nation.

FACT: Goats are naturally curious and independent, they can tend to get into more trouble than sheep. Hence the term scapegoat.

With the mystery of the two goats seeming to unfold before us in the year 2024, it means one will fall, and one will be released.

In this case, this nation is facing many egregious sins and it has come to a point and time of accountability which is why this mystery of the 2 goats we see unfolding this year.

Also, I had said within the past couple of weeks that 2024 is the year of Joshua 24, choose this day whom you will serve. Choose what is your lot that you are casting, the nation is facing a choice. Serve the Lord, submit to His Will–His Way and the leaders He chooses, or chase the false gods of the Canaanites, Hittites, and Amalekites.

What choice we make as a nation will depend then on the lot that will be cast upon us.

2024 is the year 5784 on the Jewish calendar. The year 5784 translates to the prison doors opening to Joseph and being freed.

Now this ties to this year and its meaning ties to the mystery of the two goats and this election as well.

Genesis 40 (isn’t it interesting that this is in chapter 40) because in Genesis it rained 40 days and nights on the earth as the judgment for the wickedness of man and a very corrupted earth, because the earth was filled with chamas, which means violence in Hebrew.

Also, I had spoken of that rise of the spirit of Pharaoh within the past couple of weeks as well as this chapter ties all of this together.

Genesis 40
Now some time later, the cupbearer (butler) and the baker for the king of Egypt offended their lord, Egypt’s king. 2 Pharaoh ([a]Sesostris II) was extremely angry with his two officials, the chief of the cupbearers and the chief of the bakers. 3 He put them in confinement in the house of the captain of the guard, in the same prison where Joseph was confined. 4 The captain of the guard put Joseph in charge of them, and he served them; and they continued to be in custody for some time. 5 Then the cupbearer and the baker of the king of Egypt, who were confined in the prison, both dreamed a dream in the same night, each man with his [own significant] dream and each dream with its [personal] interpretation. 6 When Joseph came to them in the morning and looked at them, [he saw that] they were sad and depressed. 7 So he asked Pharaoh’s officials who were in confinement with him in his master’s house, “Why do you look so down-hearted today?” 8 And they said to him, “We have [each] dreamed [distinct] dreams and there is no one to interpret them.” So Joseph said to them, “Do not interpretations belong to God? Please tell me [your dreams].” 9 So the chief cupbearer told his dream to Joseph, and said to him, “In my dream there was a grapevine in front of me; 10 and on the vine were three branches. Then as soon as it budded, its blossoms burst open, and its clusters produced ripe grapes [in rapid succession]. 11 Now Pharaoh’s cup was in my hand, and I took the grapes and squeezed them into Pharaoh’s cup; then I placed the cup into Pharaoh’s hand.” 12 Then Joseph said to him, “This is the interpretation of it: the three branches represent three days; 13 within three more days Pharaoh will lift up your head (present you in public) and restore you to your position; and you will [again] put Pharaoh’s cup into his hand just as [you did] when you were his cupbearer. 14 Only think of me when it goes well with you, and please show me kindness by mentioning me to Pharaoh and get me out of this house. 15 For in fact I was [b]taken (stolen) from the land of the Hebrews by [unlawful] force, and even here I have done nothing for which they should put me in the dungeon.” 16 When the chief baker saw that the interpretation [of the dream] was good, he said to Joseph, “I also dreamed, and [in my dream] there were three cake baskets on my head; 17 and in the top basket there were some of all sorts of baked food for Pharaoh, but the birds [of prey] were eating [these foods] out of the basket on my head.” 18 Joseph answered, “This is the interpretation of it: the three baskets represent three days; 19 within three more days Pharaoh will [c]lift up your head and will hang you on a tree (gallows, pole), and [you will not so much as be given a burial, but] the birds will eat your flesh.” 20 Now on the third day, [which was] the Pharaoh’s birthday, he [released the two men from prison and] made a feast for all his servants; and he lifted up the head of the chief cupbearer and the head of the chief baker [that is, presented them in public] among his servants. 21 He restored the chief cupbearer to his office, and the cupbearer [once again] put the cup into Pharaoh’s hand; 22 but Pharaoh hanged the chief baker, just as Joseph had interpreted [the meaning of the dreams] to them. 23 Yet [even after all that] the chief cupbearer did not remember Joseph, but forgot [all about] him.

They both worked for Pharaoh, both had a dream interpreted by Joseph, and both were in prison for upsetting Pharaoh.

This ties as well to the mystery of the 2 goats.

So from prison, they were both brought before Pharaoh.  One official fell and one was let go and released.

Lots are set to be cast and the month of June is not only a serious month to watch right now, which I had been warning about, BUT the time between Passover and Yom Kippur 2024 known as the 10 days of AWE, given this mystery, this is a crucial window of time having to do with national leadership and those contending, not only in the United States but other nations as well.

Is Trump not surrendering totally to God

We need to pray the blood of Jesus over our nation and Trump family ….God will get the glory for the victory….election may not even happen but many will know that only God could do what needs to be done…like exposing crossfire hurricane in its entirety!

I’m reminded of the animated movie, King of Dreams which depicts the biblical story of Joseph and all he went through, first thrown into the pit by his jealous brothers, then being entrapped by Potiphars wife, and all along Joseph was being refined and at the end with A little fictional license the producers had Joseph retrieved from prison by Potiphar, the same one whose wife had been unfaithful to Him/although Joseph had committed no sin, but Potiphar repents before Joseph and Joseph forgives him, before interpreting Pharaohs dream about the 7 years of famine, so the Lord prepared Joseph just as He is preparing Trump ( as mentioned in earlier prophecies. So excited to see Gods faithfulness to His children and preparing a way to deliver and set free the captives. Looking forward to the next several months, stand in awe and watch God unfold His plan to save those who live Him.

Interesting how God takes you into the Old Days of Israel and shows you the parallel tracks being formed.


nMy only question, I as trying to listen to this and fell asleep (really short sleep last night) so when it got to the end, I was wondering why the whole blog wasn't there.

There's a global prayer movement yearly called 10 Days of Prayer, which coincides 10 Days of Awe. Cities and groups from all denominations encouraged to stop activities, pray, mourn and worship. They are doing this all over the world
