There is also another rod in the bible.

Isa 11:1 And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots:

These verses are that rod ^.
Jer 1:11 Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Jeremiah, what seest thou? And I said, I see a rod of an almond tree.
Jer 1:12 Then said the LORD unto me, Thou hast well seen: for I will hasten my word to perform it.

This is what happened when they killed the Lord's rod.
Jer 1:13 And the word of the LORD came unto me the second time, saying, What seest thou? And I said, I see a seething pot; and the face thereof is toward the north.
Jer 1:14 Then the LORD said unto me, Out of the north an evil shall break forth upon all the inhabitants of the land.
Jer 1:15 For, lo, I will call all the families of the kingdoms of the north, saith the LORD; and they shall come, and they shall set every one his throne at the entering of the gates of Jerusalem, and against all the walls thereof round about, and against all the cities of Judah.

Obviously vision 1 is about a rod coming. Vision 2 is obviously the destruction of Israel in AD 70.

The rod of Jesse I beleive would be likened to rod of Aaron which produced fruit almonds . The rod spoken of in Jerimiah is not speaking of fruit but a warning more to not add or subtract from it. The rod of discipline (the rod for the back) as to how we can hear. . Like the strange fire with Aarons two son.. nothing can be added to it.

Having established the law of interpretation (Thou hast well seen) : he applies it to the second vision the fruit of the rod . The time of reformation had come rendering the temple as what the eyes see to no effect. . . . setting up the abomination of desecration to any who looked to its walls. . to remind them of that pagan form of worship Kings in Israel rather than walking by faith the unseen Holy Place .

The destruction in regard to the use of Jewish flesh in types and parables. . . used to represent belief and unbelief mankind had come to a end. The beginning of Jacob's trouble natural unconverted man had begun .A tribulation like none before for the flesh of a Jew .they lost their ability to related to God according to the flesh .That kind of false zeal is occurring to today (wailing wall) . Men hoping their flesh could profit for something when it comes to a new creation . Even Jesus of His own flesh said it propfits for nothing.

If I saw that girl today, I'd think:
"Not too shabby for a girl with a set of drapes on her head...
and a look on her face like she knows I did something.


I think more of not today, no way Jose ? Do I look like a slave?
