The Watchmen (Guards) Of The Last Days


The Watchmen (Guards) Of The Last Days

The word Natsarim speaks of watchmen (guards) appointed by YAHUAH ELOHIYM and assigned to the task of watching over The Restoration of All Yisrael.
AT the same time, (1) says YAHUAH, will I be the ELOHIYM of all the families of Yisrael, (2) and they shall be my people.

Thus says YAHUAH, The people which were left of the sword found grace in the wilderness; (3) even Yisrael, when I went to cause him to rest.

YAHUAH has appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved you with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn you. (4)

Again I will build you, (5) and you shall be built, O virgin of Yisrael: (6) you shall again be adorned with your tabrets, and shall go forth in the dances (7) of them that make merry.

You shall yet plant vines upon the mountains of Shomeron: (the planters shall plant, and shall eat them as common things.

For there shall be a day, (9) that the Natsarim (10) upon Mount Ephrayim shall cry, Arise ye, and let us go up to Tsiyon unto EL-YAHUAH ELOHAYNU. (11)

For thus says YAHUAH; Sing with gladness for Ya’aqov, and shout among the chief of the nations: (12) publish ye, praise ye, and say, O YAHUAH, save your people, the remnant of Yisrael. (13)

Behold, I will bring them from the north country, and gather them from the coasts of the earth, and with them the blind and the lame, (14) the woman with child and her that travails with child together: (15) a great company shall return thither. (16)

They shall come with weeping, and with supplications will I lead them: (17) I will cause them to walk by the rivers of waters in a straight way, (18) wherein they shall not stumble: for I am a Father to Yisrael, and Ephraim is my firstborn. (19)

Hear the Word of YAHUAH, O ye nations, and declare it in the isles afar off, and say, He that scattered Yisrael will gather him, and guard him, as a shepherd (20) his flock. (21)



(1) Age to come.

(2) YIRMEYAHU (Jeremiah) 31:1 is a definitive proclamation from YAHUAH, that at the time of Jacob’s (twelve tribes) return from all the lands of their dispersion, YAHUAH will once again be the Master of all the tribes of Yisrael.

(3) Salvation, regeneration and unmerited favor, all are found in the wilderness of the nations for both houses, prior to their physical return.

4 YAHUAH speaking to His beloved Yisrael.

5 YAHUAH – not man – does the building.

6 All Yisrael – i.e., both houses – will be rebuilt and return together. Notice Ephrayim does not meet Yahudah in the land, but returns together with them from the nations, in the rebuilding by YAHUAH through His Son.

7 Hebraic dancing, and a growth in its interest, is also a sign that the daughter of Zion is being rebuilt.

8 Capital of Ephrayim, showing YAHUAH’s full intention to bring Ephrayim home.

9 Seventh-Day, or seven thousandth year since Adam.

10 In the course of time, the former northern territory of the land of Yisrael became known as Samaria, and the occupants of that land as Samaritans. These were a mixed breed of Ephrayimite, food-growing landowners, and Assyrian colonists. Many Scriptures prophetically speak of a future day in the days around the time of the end of the exile, during which Natsariym will inhabit these same mountains of Samaria. These prophetic Scriptures reveal the glorious plan of the Father to turn these idolatrous territories into one of the future home bases of the Natsariym of Yisrael.

The word Natsariym speaks of watchmen (guards) appointed by YAHUAH and assigned to the task of watching over the restoration of all Yisrael. Scripture refers to the Mountains of Ephrayim (Samaria), which will produce the watchmen (guards) of the last days.

The late Rabbi Isidor Zwirn, of blessed memory, a Messianic Jew, confirmed this in his extensive research on the term Natsariym-Yisrael, which he defined as “Christian believers.” He states:

“Isaiah 11:1 clinched my acceptance of YAHUSHA HaNatsariym as the preserver of the twelve tribes of Yisrael, and the founding Father of the Natsariym.” Another traditional Jew, Ben Cohen, states: “the way watchmen has been translated in our Scriptures, it’s a wonder we can see it right.

The word is natsariym, and the root is natsar. The real explanation of the word in Hebrew is to safe keep, to keep until a later time, to hide it in a way that will be revealed later. But now take into consideration that the book of YIRMEYAHU (Jeremiah), of course, was written before there was Christianity. You look for a clue as to how it came about that YIRMEYAHU (Jeremiah) used a word that was not used in his day at all, and it is the word used in Hebrew for Christians today. And it is translated ‘preserved ones of Yisrael’ in English. Elsewhere it is translated as “watchmen.” The word natsar is used only three times in the Scripture (First Covenant), and everywhere it is mentioned it has to do only with Ephrayim. It’s amazing.”

11 Ephrayim will long for and cry out to Yahudah (Judah) for a mutual and equitable return.

12 In context, Ephraim as the Nazarenes, or “watchmen” are to cry out in all nations that Messiah has come for atonement and return from the exile.

13 All believers must publish these good tidings.

14 Spiritually.

15 The Hebrew here is kahal gadol, or “a large congregation.” The congregation of Renewed Covenant Yisrael, consisting of the large remnant of the 12 tribes that once stood at Mt. Sinai.

16 The “catching away” is the regathering of both houses back to the land.

17 YAHUAH leads us back to the land, not man.

18 Torah.

19 Here YAHUAH states that it is Ephraim (later to become the ten-tribes of Yisrael) that is always and eternally His firstborn. As YAHUAH’s eternal firstborn, he comes to a time of repentance through the Renewed Covenant. It is at that time that YAHUAH will be Master over all the tribes, or clans of Yisrael, according to YIRMEYAHU (Jeremiah) 31:1. The one returning as part of the great congregation from the nations is Ephrayim, YAHUAH’s firstborn.

Hebrews 12:23 confirms the centrality and spiritual primacy of firstborn Yisrael, the redeemed gathering and “congregation of the firstborn, having been enrolled in heaven….” YAHUAH says that all believers make up the membership of the “congregation of firstborn Yisrael,” whose names are recorded in the Lamb’s Book Of Life.


21 All Yisrael will return by the same one who was responsible for the scattering.
