“The one that Our Creator will use is the one that is willing to be hidden.” From Ever Increasing Faith by Smith Wigglesworth
Evangelist Smith Wigglesworth (June 8, 1851-March 12, 1947) speaks about those who are not seeking popularity, fame, fortune, a big name, or a big ministry, but to those willing to be hidden in the secret place of the Most High. These hidden ones are soon to be released by the Master Yahushua, sheltered under the authority and power of Yahuwah, for His end-time purposes. Then our esteem will be manifested and rewarded when Yahushua sits on His throne on Mount Zion.
Psalm 83:1-3: “O Elohim, do not remain silent! Do not be speechless! And do not be still, O El! For look, Your enemies make an uproar, and those hating You have lifted up the head. They craftily plot against Your people, and conspire against your hidden/treasured ones.”
The “hidden ones”: #6845 Strong’s Hebrew Concordance–“tsaphan,”–meaning “stored.” But it also means “to hide, to treasure up, conceal, hidden, keep secretly, saved, secret place, stored away, and treasured.”
Romans 8:18-25: “For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy comparing with the esteem that is to be revealed in us. For the intense longing of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of Elohim…the creation was subjected to futility, not from choice, but because of Him who subjected it in anticipation that the creation itself also shall be delivered from bondage to corruption into the esteemed freedom of the children of Elohim. For we know that all the creation groans together and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now. And not only so, but even we ourselves who have the first fruits of the Spirit, we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of the body…and if we expect what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with endurance.”
A Sampling of Other Uses of “tsaphan”
Psalm 27:5, NAS: “He will conceal me in His tabernacle”
Psalm 27:5,KJV: “He will hide me…”
Psalm 27:5-6,The Scriptures: “For in the day of evil, He hides me in His booth (succah). In the covering of His tent He hides me; on a rock He raises me up. And now my head is lifted up above my enemies all around me; and I offer in His tents with shouts of joy; I sing, yea, I sing praises to Yahuwah.”
Psalm 31:20,NAS: “You keep them secretly in a shelter.”
Psalm 31:19-20, The Scriptures: “How great is Your goodness, which you have laid up for those fearing you, which You have prepared for those taking refuge in You in the sight of the sons of men! In the secrecy of Your Presence You shall hide them from the plots of man; You shelter them in a booth (succah) from the strife of tongues.”
Malachi 3:16-18,The Scriptures: “Then shall those who fear Yahuwah speak to one another and Yahuwah will listen and hear, and a Book of Remembrance be written before Him of those who fear Yahuwah and those who think upon His Name. `And they shall be mine,’ says Yahuwah of hosts, `on the day that I prepare a treasured possession. And I shall spare them as a man spares his own son who serves him. Then you shall again see the difference between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves Elohim and the one who does not.’ ”
James Strong’s Hebrew Concordance #5459: “segullah” meaning “possession (i.e. property), treasured possession. The meaning of “treasured possession” boils down in the Hebrew language to “owned hidden property.” He has a remnant who knows Him and whom He knows. These are His treasure–His hidden property that He hides away.
We are servants who carry out His assignment daily, yet we wait for our time of release into final assignments before He gathers us together unto Messiah.
We are “bought” with a price. Only bond slaves are “bought,” i.e. Greek: “Doulos.” We are not our own, but belong to Yahuwah and Yahushua who own us. Yahushua purchased the people of Yahuwah with His own blood. (I Corinthians 6:20; 7:23; I Peter 1:18-19)
Malachi 3:17, KJV: “when I make up my jewels”
Exodus 19:5-6aThe Scriptures: “And now, if you diligently obey My voice and shall guard My covenant, then you shall be my treasured possession above all the people, for all the earth is mine, and you shall be to me a kingdom of priests and a set-apart nation…”
Psalm 91:1, KJV: “He that dwells in the secret place of the Most High, shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.” (Hebrew meaning: “a hidden place inaccessible to the enemy”) Hebrew Strong’s Concordance #3643: “beseter” meaning “shelter, a covering, hiding place, secrecy, concealed, covering, hidden from view,” i.e. Psalm 27:5.
Psalm 139:15 describes a “womb” as a secret hiding place, a dark and hidden place where everything needed is supplied.
Psalm 18:11, “darkness” is His hiding place.
Psalm 32:7NAS, “you are my hiding place” i.e. Psalm 119:114.
Psalm 91:1– “a secret place, sheltered place” … The secret of receiving the promises that follow in this Psalm are dependent on the word “dwells.” We are hidden in Him, under His talit, as we dwell under His shadow in His Presence. It is an extra dimensional state of being, a spiritually sitting in the third heaven. Therefore, as Psalm 91:7explains we look out on the world as if we’re inside of something, hidden away, looking through a porthole to the outside.
Revelation 12:6: “And the woman fled into the wilderness where she has a place prepared by Elohim to be nourished…” Revelation 12:17:“And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to fight with the remnant of her seed, those guarding the commandments of Elohim and possessing the witness of Yahushua Messiah.” There is a physical place of hiding in Edom/Petra, Jordan.
There are those who will be believers martyred by the tens of thousands, and there will be those who will be hidden in a physical place, but some will be hidden in the Garden, for they are theRevelation 14:1-5blameless ones who re-enter the immortal portal between the third heaven and this physical plain in East Jerusalem.
In Psalm 83:3 and Psalm 2, we see that the evil ones are conspiring against
Yahuwah, and Yahushua, and against Their “treasured ones,” the ones hidden, stored away in His Presence. That has seriously begun. This remnant, representative of the Daniel 11:32company, is covered over, not seen by the enemy – so it appears by the text. Their coming and going is dependent on their assignments from Yahuwah. With this remnant in East Jerusalem are Eliyahu/Elijah and Moshe/Moses, the two witnesses, plus others there from the eternal realm, like Enoch, Dani’el, and Yochanan (John the Apostle), and Iyob/Job. There are prophetic words in the Prophets, like in Jeremiah 25:15-16, 27-33, which are for our day that must be proclaimed into the earth before His Judgment is executed.
In the “days of Noah,” Noah proclaimed the judgment to earth’s people before the “deep broke up.” The conspiring to get at the set-apart ones, the hidden ones, to eliminate them from earth is very real now, for they will openly prophecy in the face of the Beast/anti-messiah the Judgment of all the fallen ones and their human or hybrid agents. I know these things for sure. Abba began showing them to me from age 4 or 5 (summer of 1949). The Scriptures are all united in this, of course.
The area of Edom, today called “Petra” will hide the set-apart ones who come across “the wings of the great eagle” in the topography of the Dead Sea. I lived in Aqaba on the Red Sea, 75 miles south of Petra for eight years. I saw the crossing place from Israel into Jordan on the Dead Sea, and I went to Petra so many times that the native Bedouin called me “Miss Aqaba.”
Daniel 11:41, is a passage describing the reign of the Daniel 7 and Revelation 13Beast, the Apollyon/Abaddon ofRevelation 9:11. “…and (he) shall enter the Splendid Land (Israel) and many shall stumble, but these shall escape from his hand: Edom, Moab, and the chief of the sons of Amman.” Those areas are the areas of modern Jordan, the last days set apart place being “Petra” in Edom.
This is where the hidden ones hide in a physical reality (Revelation 12:6, 17). But, they’re not hidden for long. Most of His remnant will be hidden somewhere during the final ten days before Messiah comes.
Revelation 2:8, 10: “And to the messenger of the assembly in Smyrna write… do not be afraid of what you are about to suffer. See, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison in order try you, and you shall have tribulation ten days. Be trustworthy unto death and I will give you a crown of life…”
Psalm 91:1, 7 kicks into full power for the “hidden ones,” especially at the end when the purge of Satan is at its worst. Not only the two witnesses of Eliyahu and Moshe, but a few in the company will come face to face with the Beast, the Apollyon/Abaddon, the anti-messiah, and come away “unscathed!”
Messiah speaks of the extra-dimensional remnant, Revelation 3:7-8, 10-11: “And to the messenger at Philadelphia write, `He who is set-apart, He who is true, He who has the key of David, He who opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens’ says this: `I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, and no one is able to shut it…you have a little power, yet have guarded My Word, and have not denied My Name…Because you have guarded My Word of endurance, I also shall guard you from the hour of trial which shall come upon all the world, to try those who dwell on the earth. See, I am coming speedily! Hold fast to what you have that no one takes your crown…”
In his prophecy, “In one hour everything is going to change,” David Wilkerson said: “A divine remnant is going to awaken, and a song will be born in the fire.”
Yes, as Scripture says, “sudden destruction” will come in one hour, and the world will be changed by the impact of it. Shortly before this happens, the set-apart remnant will be brought out of hiding, and their song of the coming Messiah will be born in the fire.”
In the letter to the assembly of Smyrna, they are promised prison and suffering for ten days. In the letter to the assembly of Philadelphia, they are promised an open door that no one shuts. Yochanan sees both groups inRevelation 7. Smyrna represents the martyrs. Philadelphia represents the Bridal remnant. Revelation 3:12 tells of this remnant’s sealing, as does Revelation 7:1:8 and Revelation 14:1-5. The eternal state of the sealed remnant: Revelation 22:3-5.
Perhaps those who are martyred must prove their loyalty to Yahuwah, but then again, perhaps He trusts them to be martyrs since the word “martyr” means “witness.” They witness to their loyalty by their death. The bridal remnant who is translated, not killed, prove their loyalty by daily dying to self, living a martyred life, and witnessing of their loyalty to their Savior as a lifestyle. For sure, death to self is mandatory for anyone who is truly born and following the Master!
This could be dividing between loyal Christians and faithful Messianic believers …
Speaking of the hidden ones in the recent article, “What About the Passing of Billy Graham? Was it a “Sign?,” I share my notes of the prophecy spoken by Pastor Mark Chironna, July 21, 2012. Its fulfillment is extremely close!
“This was the most significant `day’ in church history. There is a convergence of signs. There is a company of people that have been hidden in Messiah for a season, but they are coming out of hiding, and they are going to stand in the courts of Pharaoh, and they’re going to challenge the spirits of Egypt. They are going to challenge the powers of Egypt, and the earth is going to see a 21st century manifestation of the Spirit…He’s waited 5,000 years. They (thehidden ones) feel like they’re not going to be used and it’s too late for them and it’s all over…but that is the company that carries the power like John the Baptist in the wilderness eating locusts and wild honey. They are being weaned away from everything that is contradictory to the Word. That company is coming out of hiding. They’re going to move into a manifestation of power. Benny cut in: “And may I add, the sign will be Billy Graham’s death.”
Obadiah 1:21: “And saviors shall come up on Mount Zion to judge the mountain of Esau, and the reign shall belong to Yahuwah.”
This verse in Obadiah is the only place in Scripture where the word “anointed” is plural. “Esau is Edom.” Yahuwah said He loved Ya’cob but He hated Esau. Esau migrated into Rome in its early history, and thus the hate for his brother Ya’cob/Jacob went with him into Rome, then into the Vatican, creators of Islam, to this day. The set-apart ones of Revelation 12:7-17, the ones hidden there, may very well be joined by the Bridal remnant during the final ten days because of the reign of terror by Satan and all the fallen ones together. The joining of the whole remnant group in one place, inside Petra/Edom would truly be a Judge of Esau, on the Mount of Esau, Mount Seir, which Petra is–former habitation of the Horites under their leader, Mr. Seir.
Isaiah 26:19-21, Isaiah speaking: “Let Your dead live; together with my dead body, let them arise. Awake and sing, you who dwell in dust; for Your dew is as a dew of light, and let the earth give birth to the departed spirits. `Go My people, enter into your rooms, and shut your doors behind you; hide yourself as it were for a little while, until the displeasure is past. For Look, Yahuwah is coming out of His place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their crookedness. And the earth shall disclose her blood and no longer cover her slain.”
This is speaking of our day before the coming of Messiah, Yahushua Yahuwah. It speaks of our resurrection from the grave–from the destroyed earth in general. But, look at verse 20: “`Go My people, enter your rooms…’ ”The word translated “rooms,” is Hebrew for “chambers,” i.e. “holes in the rocks!” It is speaking to people who are near caves high up in the rocks. In reading Obadiah, we see this is referring to Edom/Esau/Mount Seir, Petra. “Petra” is Greek for “Rock.” Thus the Greek name for Shimon Kepha: “Peter,” meaning a rock. It is speaking to those in Revelation 12:17 , those who travel southeast from Israel across the the Lisan Peninsula in the Dead Sea—“the wings of the eagle,” and its beak, into Jordan. Jews in Israel know this well!
These “saviors,” or “anointed ones, may be referring to the two in Zechariah 4 and Revelation 11, who stand beside the throne of Yahushua. In the heavenly temple they are the conduits for the oil to pour into the menorah–symbolic of Yahuwah’s Spirit pouring into the seven assemblies of Yahushua (Revelation 2-3), so that the set-apart ones who will overcome will be so anointed that any yokes on their necks will slip off(Isaiah 10:27) These two are mentioned in Revelation 11 as the two witnesses. But, most likely “the saviors” refers to all of the remnant who accompany the two main witnesses, from both Houses – House of Judah, House of Ephraim – the “Bridal” remnant ofDaniel 11:32 andRevelation 14:1-5remnant.
The yokes of the flesh/the carnal nature, torments of the mind, physical problems, and any hindrances whatsoever will be removed as they are translated so as to not see death – Ezekiel 9:4, Revelation 9:4,Revelation 7:1-8, Revelation 14:1-5 and 15:1-3. These are the “bridal remnant” of Revelation 3:12 and 22:3-5who remain in the Presence of Yahushua. These are the blameless ones who are freed from any hooks the enemy had in their body, or soul (mind, emotions, memory, reasoning, feeling, past fragmenting, mind-control, etc.) They are freed to join Eliyahu and Moshe as a “company,” as in Revelation 7:1-8 or as in Revelation 7:9-17.
Steven ben Nun, in speaking of the “hidden ones” of Psalm 83:3said: “The two witnesses are here already, waiting for their ministry to begin.” I know that to be true. However, their short Revelation 11 ministry will not begin until the anti-messiah sits. On the other hand, the spirit of Eliyahu has been uniting fathers and children as per Malachi 4:5-6 for several years, beginning at the approximate time that the Covenant of Elohim’s Torah was restored to the not-lost-anymore House of Israel/Ephraim/Joseph, beginning in its fullness, in the mid-1990s. As Eliyahu and Moshe go forth to speak to the nations, this restoration will take place, and the united remnant of the children of Abraham, Yitzak, and Y’acob will work together as described in Isaiah 11:12-14. By the wording of Revelation 11 and the event in Matthew 17:1-8, we know that the two witnesses are Eliyahu and Moshe, both Levites, both intercessors for the children of Ya’cob.
The hiding place of the “bridal remnant” will be the Garden of Eden–an extra dimensional area in East Jerusalem that connects earth with the throne room, now guarded by a flaming sword. In the days of hiding, the flaming sword will not keep the remnant out, but will protect them within the Garden. It will be a sheltering place where the third heaven and our dimension meet. This remnant, with Eliyahu and Moshe, will come and go from there. They will be on assignment for Yahuwah, but as immortals, translated beings, they cannot die, just as Adam and Eve could not die as long as they were in the Garden.
There will be others from the past also who did not die, or who are allowed to return at this time. We know about Enoch, but also there was no record of the death of Dani’el or of Yochanan either. There will be other returnees of that spiritual caliber. Only the two leaders will be killed by the Beast (Revelation 9:11; Revelation Chapter 11; and Revelation 13. Their bodies will remain lying in the street in front of the Eastern Gate for 3 days – just short of the timing when the body begins to decay. Then upon the signal from Yahushua the High Priest, they arise to the terror of the Beast and all the fallen ones. When the Beast has the two main witnesses killed, Satan, empowering Apollyon/Abaddon, knows he has 3 days to do his worse, and he attempts to destroy all the earth and all mankind. They all know their judgment has arrived. That is why Yahuwah’s people must be sheltered, either in Petra or in the Garden.
Moses was hidden on the backside of the desert at the base of Sinai for 40 years until the day Yahushua spoke to him from a burning bush and told him it was time to go to Egypt and set His people free.
To review some of the recent article “The Shmittah Year Prophecy Revisited 2018,” the hiding of Moses was part of a message Pastor Lankford gave with Steve Quayle about a remnant being ‘sequestered,’ set-apart in isolation, until the time when the verdict is given to the wicked and the Judge comes to execute the punishment. It is the same message! The hidden ones, the `sequestered ones,’ will soon be released, for the Judge is coming to take charge. The word ‘sequestered’ carries a similar meaning to the word `hidden,’ as in being isolated for a period of time until the time when the Judgment is given and the hidden ones are free to go forth. It’s a time of being set-apart, isolated, set-aside, like a jury, until the verdict is reached and the Judge is ready to administer the Justice. This is a time of finalizing His plans to use His remnant!
Bottom Line: His true people produce fruit “30, 60, or 100-fold.” (Mark 4:1-25) Either you’re one of the guests at the wedding (Matthew 22:1-14, Revelation 21:23-24a), one of the attendants (Mark 2:19; John 3:29), or part of a Bridal remnant who has made herself ready by allowing the Spirit full reign. (Revelation 3:12; chapter 7; 14:1-5; 22:3-5). The whole Word speaks of a wedding.

As we see in the three parables of Matthew 25, we choose what our eternal position will be by how we put our faith into action following a true new birth. Salvation is about a transfer from the kingdom of darkness into the Kingdom of Light, about repentance, and submission to a new Master, about reflecting the nature, ways, and thinking of the King of the Kingdom. Laziness leads the servant to a firm beating in judgment, or Messiah saying “I truly say to you, I do not know you.” Every day we make choices that determine our eternal future. Shut off the technological mind-programming devices of the enemy, and allow the Spirit of Yahuwah to program your mind by His Word, taught by Him.
I realize that some of you may not understand all of what I wrote here. I’ve explained most all of it in previous articles for years. By my birthday this July, I will have had 70 years of education by the Spirit, beginning in 1949, that has to do with what I wrote in this article. Of course, it has taken me most of those 69 years to fully understand what He has been saying (smile). But, I just know it is all true.
Habakkuk 1:5: “Look among the nations and see, and be amazed, be amazed! For a work is being wrought in your days which you would not believe if it were told.” This prophecy introduces the judgment of Yahuwah. Yet, at the same time, for His set-apart ones, we, in our day, shall also see the “salvation” of our Elohim. Therefore, we should look for what He is doing with His children more than what is happening in the judgment of the wicked!
In conclusion, I request that you read and prayIsaiah 12for yourself. “That day” is the return of Messiah! Will the words be your confession on “that day?”
