What is the Hephzi-bah doctrine?
2 And the Gentiles shall see thy righteousness, and all kings thy glory: and thou shalt be called by a new name, which the mouth of the LORD shall name.
3 Thou shalt also be a crown of glory in the hand of the LORD, and a royal diadem in the hand of thy God.
4 Thou shalt no more be termed Forsaken; neither shall thy land any more be termed Desolate: but thou shalt be called Hephzi-bah, and thy land Beulah: for the LORD delighteth in thee, and thy land shall be married.
The future of the people of God is a blessed state. The Church is likened here to be as a crown, glorious and authoritative. The latter days glory for the Church is likened to be a blessed land, which is what the word “Hephzi-bah” describes.
8 Hear now, O Joshua the high priest, thou, and thy fellows that sit before thee: for they are men wondered at: for, behold, I will bring forth my servant the BRANCH.
12 And speak unto him, saying, Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying, Behold the man whose name is The BRANCH; and he shall grow up out of his place, and he shall build the temple of the LORD:
The BRANCH can be taken as a symbol, and it follows that it can be taken as an the acronym, each letter representing a word and concept: Book, Remnant, A pure language, Nation, Communication and Harvest.
Further, in the Hephzi-bah doctrine, it follows the idea of four civilisational areas coming together to a central point in the Church Restitution, which are: Religion, Nation, Politics and Culture.
First, the BRANCH:
Book. This says that there is one Bible which is exactly, precisely perfect, to be made the common heritage of the whole world generally. This is the King James Bible, specifically, the Pure Cambridge Edition. This book shows us the name of God, JEHOVAH.
Remnant. This says that Church history has been working towards the triumph of the Christian church in the latter days, and that even now there are believers and the gathering of proper doctrines (e.g. proper Pentecostalism), for unity of faith.
A pure language. This says that English is spreading abroad so that world missionisation can occur by English-speakers, that not only has English been prepared to be able to conceptually convey the Gospel, but that it is out there as the means for using the best Bible in the world for evangelism.
Nation. That among all nations, particularly the union of Australia and New Zealand are to be used of God, and for the conversion of the Jews, and great worldwide revival.
Communication. This says that the communication technology being prepared, infrastructure built and transportation possibilities at hand, that this message may reach the whole earth.
Harvest. This says that all the seeds sown must come to fruition, and that we are to reap them, at the set time and season, even at the fall of Gog.
There are, in every category of our civilisational Christian Exceptionalism, two strands which must come together, so that in religion, the highest two separate forms of King James Bible only and Word of Faith must come together in the Word and Spirit Movement; that nationally, Australia and New Zealand must come together in Pacific Union; that politically the Whig and Tory traditions must come together in the Restoration of the Commonwealth, that is, national Christianity in a new spiritual British Empire so-to-speak; and that Australia has historically benefited and is the child of both Britain and America, to perpetuate what is good in our cultural influence in the world, that is, our Manifest Destiny.
The convergence of these four movements, i.e. Word and Spirit, Pacific Union, Restore the Commonwealth and Manifest Destiny are central to Church Restitution.
This thinking follows on from the progress of Joseph Mede, John Milton, the Hartlib Circle, etc. and with emphasis on Oliver Cromwell.
It is a belief in the Church Restitution, where all the seed sown of history must be harvested, and what the devil has stolen must be restored seven-fold.
It is a belief in Bible prophecy applying not just to the past or future, but to the present, particularly, the relevance of the New Testament understanding of the Old Testament to the present.
It is, unashamedly, a creationist and providentialist view that builds upon notions put forward by Cromwell, Josiah Strong, Churchill and others, that says that the people of Ashkenaz, that is, particularly the Anglo-Saxon civilisation, is to be used of God in this mighty way in the latter days, not after the measure of the flesh, but after measure of the spiritual, particularly for upcoming outpouring of the Spirit for all nations and for the conversion of the Jews.
It says that we are those who hold aloft an ensign to the nations, we sound the call of the trumpet. It says that every one of those verses of Scripture, too numerous to quote, are coming to pass, when all these things are “finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.” (Rev. 10:7).
The Hephzi-bah doctrine is a millenarian view about our heritage and destiny, how we are vessels fit for the Master’s use. It puts us as the victors over Eastern Antichrist and as having the greatest responsibility for accomplishing the fullest measure of the Gospel, the outworking of grace for release and refreshing, so that the whole earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord.
