Supernatural Selection

or Zedekiah and the Dragon


“…if the Lord creates something new, and the ground opens its mouth and swallows them up with all that belongs to them, and they go down alive into Sheol, then you shall know that these men have despised the Lord.” (Numbers 16:29-30)

Daughter Jerusalem kept up an outward show of respectability, but under her Temple veils and military skirts her legs were open for anyone. [1] In a vision, Ezekiel dug a hole through this wall of “whitewash” as a legal witness to her crimes against the Covenant.

Ezekiel also prefigured King Zedekiah’s escape attempt by digging a hole in the wall of his own house in captivity, and climbing through it with luggage. He would be taken in the Lord’s snare, carried captive to a land he would never see and die there, wrapped in darkness.

If this follows the symbolism of the previous “hole in the wall”, Zedekiah, as the final king of Israel, prefigured the Herods. He was an anti-Christ, a hybrid child of the false gods—a Land beast with a man’s eyes and mouth. As soon as he was “born” from the wall he was swallowed by the Babylonian dragon, the reverse of the ascension of Christ in Revelation 12:2-5.

Like Christ, Zedekiah “ascended” before the emperor, not as the right hand of the power, but in chains like King Manasseh. Unlike Joseph and Daniel, he did not open “the mystery.” Like Haman, his judgment (sight) and rule were taken away.[2]

When Israel’s kings were faithful, they devoured Pharaoh’s “dragons”. However, when they behaved like dragons and devoured the innocent, Pharaoh’s dragon swallowed them and they sank into the deep. Compromise, “intermarriage” on Gentile terms, always brings a flood.
