Zech 5 NKJV    Vision of the Flying Scroll
1  Then I turned and raised my eyes, and saw there a flying scroll. 
2 And he said to me, "What do you see?" So I answered, "I see a flying  
     scroll. Its length is twenty cubits and its width ten cubits." 

In the Hebrew it says a flying roll [scroll]
OT:4039 megillah (meg-il-law'); from OT:1556; a roll: KJV - roll, volume.
And cubit is the length of the forearm below the elbow

3 Then he said to me, "This is the curse that goes out over the face of the whole earth: 'Every thief shall be expelled,' according to this side of the scroll; and, 'Every perjurer shall be expelled,' according to that side of it." 

Everyone who stealeth in the Hebrew. The word for steal here includes the thievery of deception.      
OT:1589 ganab (gaw-nab'); a primitive root; to thieve (literally or figuratively); by implication, to deceive:  KJV - carry away, X indeed, secretly bring, steal (away), get by stealth.
And the one who sweareth it translates from the Hebrew as perjurer.
The word for swear being:    
OT:7650  shaba` (shaw-bah'); a primitive root; propr. to be complete, but used only as a denominative from OT:7651; to seven oneself, i.e. swear (as if by repeating a declaration seven times): KJV - adjure, charge (by an oath, with an oath), feed to the full [by mistake for OT:7646], take an oath, X straitly, (cause to, make to) swear.

4 "I will send out the curse," says the Lord of hosts; 
        Curse:    OT:423'alah (aw-law'); from OT:422; an imprecation:
                                  KJV - curse, cursing, execration, oath, swearing.

"It shall enter the house of the thief and the house of the one who swears falsely by My name. 
It shall remain in the midst of his house and consume it, with its timber and stones." 

The LORD HIMSELF sends out this curse [ so much for the God Who doesn’t judge ].  This is judgment in the house of the LORD people…those who swear falsely by MY NAME.  Every thief and every perjurer…one who lies about his dedication to GOD.  One who deceives the people – all pretenders to the throne.   That is why the Lord admonished us that the wheat and tares would grow together, but at the time of the end, the ANGELS , He would send to separate the sheep from the goats. And that one’s house will be utterly consumed according to this scripture.

Vision of the Woman in a Basket
5 Then the angel who talked with me came out and said to me, "Lift your 
    eyes now, and see what this is that goes forth."  6 So I asked, "What is it?" And he said, "It is a basket that is going forth." He also said, "This is their resemblance throughout the earth: 
The word for basket here is ephah
    OT:374  'eyphah (ay-faw'); or (shortened) 'ephah (ay-faw'); of Egyptian derivation; an ephah or measure for grain; hence, a measure in general: KJV - ephah, (divers) measure (-s).

7 Here is a lead disc lifted up, and this is a woman sitting inside the basket"; 
In the Hebrew it indicates a talent of LEAD as the disc lifted up…a COIN.
    OT:5777 `owphereth (o-feh'-reth); or `ophereth (o-feh'-reth); feminine participle active of OT:6080; lead (from its dusty color):  KJV - lead.

And there is a WOMAN… SITTING INSIDE THE EPHAH of GRAIN 
OT:802 'ishshah (ish-shaw'); feminine of OT:376 or OT:582; irregular plural, nashiym (naw-sheem'); a woman (used in the same wide sense as OT:582):KJV - [adulter] ess, each, every, female, X many, + none, one, + together, wife, woman. Often unexpressed in English.

Now GRAIN is the fruit of wheat, and represents often the bread of LIFE, GOD, Who is Christ Jesus, or His saints figuratively.

8 then he said, "This is Wickedness!" And he thrust her down into the basket, and threw the lead cover over its mouth. 

The word for wickedness here is OT:7564 rish`ah (rish-aw'); feminine of OT:7562; wrong (especially moral):  KJV - fault, wickedly (-ness).

So in the midst of the church is wickedness personified,  in the feminine form - JEZEBEL, the great HARLOT of Revelation.  And into the midst HE cast the lead talent into the ephah…and I may be wrong but to me, it speaks of the Lord weighing the situation and saying not gold, but LEAD COIN. A sign of a tainted people.  And he throws it upon the MOUTH of the ephah.  

9 Then I raised my eyes and looked, and there were two women, coming with the wind in their wings; for they had wings like the wings of a stork, and they lifted up the basket between earth and heaven. 

Wind is Ruwach, and in their wings…wings like those of a bird…
           OT:3671 [n*K* kanaph (kaw-nawf'); from OT:3670; an edge or extremity; specifically (of a bird or army) a wing, (of a garment or bed-clothing) a flap, (of the earth) a quarter, (of a building) a pinnacle: KJV - + bird, border, corner, end, feather [-ed], X flying, + (one an-) other, overspreading, X quarters, skirt, X sort, uttermost part, wing ([-ed]).

10 So I said to the angel who talked with me, "Where are they carrying the basket?"  11 And he said to me, "To build a house for it in the land of Shinar; when it is ready, the basket will be set there on its base."

Shinar was known as the land of the Nephilim from something I listened to this week.    
OT:8152 ru*n=v! Shin`ar (shin-awr'); probably of foreign derivation; Shinar, a plain in Babylonia:KJV - Shinar.

SHINAR
The name given, in the earliest Hebrew records, to Babylonia, later called Babel, or the land of Babel (babhel, 'erets babhel). In Genesis 10:10 it is the district wherein lay Babel, Erech, Accad, and Calneh, cities which were the "beginning" of Nimrod's kingdom. In 11:2 Shinar is described as the land of the plain where migrants from the East settled, and founded Babel, the city, and its great tower.

SHINAR
A place name designating Babylonia. It appears several times in the OT. According to Genesis 10:10, Nimrod ruled over Babel, Erech and Akkad, all in the land of Shinar. The tower of Babel was erected there (Gen 11:2). One of the kings with whom Abraham fought was Amraphel, king of Shinar (Gen 14:1, 9). The prophet Isaiah foresaw a time when God will gather together his dispersed people, some of whom will be residing in Shinar (Is 11:11). In one of the visions of Zechariah, Shinar is the site of a shrine to be built for the woman, Wickedness (Zech 5:5-11). Finally, it is stated in the Book of Daniel (1:2) that after the destruction of Jerusalem by Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, the Temple treasures were removed and brought to Shinar. The land of Shinar, which comprises ancient Mesopotamia, may somehow be related etymologically to the indigenous term "summer" in Sumerian.

Isaiah 11:11   It will happen in that day that the Lord will set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant that is left of his people from Assyria, from Egypt, from Pathros, from Cush [Ethiopia], from Elam, from Shinar, [Iraq] from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea.
The Land of Shinar was the site of the kingdoms founded by Nimrod: 
"And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth. He was a mighty hunter before The Lord: wherefore it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before The Lord. And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar." (Genesis 10:8-10 KJV)

After The Flood, humans soon got back to their arrogant, defiant-of-God ways: 
"And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there. And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime [that is, Bitumen] had they for mortar."

"And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth."  "And The Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. And The Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech."  "So The Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because The Lord did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did The Lord scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth." (Genesis 11:1-9 KJV)
 
Now I want to divert a bit, but it’s not really a diversion to understand that
Freemasons honor NIMROD.  And want you to see a couple things that tie these scriptures to this.

The Followers Of Nimrod's Secret Sect Versus The People Of Abraham
By Benjamin Fulford
6-14-8
http://www.rense.com/general82/foll.htm

“When I was invited to join the Freemasons at the highest level last year, I was told that it was the year 5773, which was 6 years older than the Jewish calendar date of 5767. They told me there was no God and that they were God. They said there were 13 steps in Freemasonry above the 33rd degree. That also corresponds with 13 sacred bloodlines.”  Read the rest at above site.  [ I don’t agree with his statements though which are blasphemous, many of them, and antisemitic. The point is the relationship of freemasonry with Nimrod, and Babylon/Shinar ]
He does state:
“We know that Freemasonry is linked to stonemasons. We also know from many sources that the Rothschilds consider themselves to be descendants of Nimrod. Other sources (eg "William Josiah Sutton, The Illuminati 666, 198) note that Nimrod was the first to teach the arts of masonry as in the tower of Babel.”

Freemasonry & the Oath of Nimrod: The Masonic Connection to the Ancient Babylonian Mystery Religions
http://futurestorm.blogspot.com/2009/12/freemasonry-and-oath-of-nimrod-masonic.html

There is a direct connection between Freemasonry and the ancient Babylonian mystery religion from which the ancient pagan religions of Egypt, Persia, Greece and Rome eventually developed. It all goes back to a man named Nimrod who the Freemasons view as the true originator of their Order. Nimrod was a great Mesopotamian king who founded the city of Babylon and established the first great empire after Noah's flood. He is also traditionally associated with the Tower of Babel. According to tradition, Nimrod sought to turn men away from God by setting up a tyrannical government and setting up a new religion. In fact, the new religion centered around Nimrod and his wife Semiramis eventually evolved into Baal worship from which all the pagan religions of the Middle East and Europe later developed. Not only that, according to the Encyclopedia of Freemasonry: The legend of the Craft in the Old Constitutions, Nimrod is one of the founders of Masonry.

In fact initiates in at least some forms of Freemasonry are still required to take the "Oath of Nimrod" even today. The Spring 2006 issue of Freemasonry Today (a Masonic publication) tells us that the Oath of Nimrod is part of the initiation process for the "indentured apprentice".

Quotes from Yvonne Kitchen’s Book: “Freemasonry: Death in the Family”
[ Only available in Australia ]

“Priests"
Freemasonry is a Priesthood of Baal and Hermes. The Priests of Baal and
Hermes were anointed with oil and blood on the foreheads and hands. They
were clothed in the priestly garments of the long gown, turban, breastplate,
ephod and incense.
A church under this Masonic priesthood crosses the Bloodline of Jesus, and
goes back to Aaron, the priest and prophet of the old law. We return to
ritual blood sacrifice and nullify the Blood of Jesus. Freemasonry is a
priesthood of death, not of life.”

The 16th Degree of Freemasonry
The Lodge of the 16th degree represents the Throne room of Darius. The Master plays the role of Darius, whilst the members assume the role of his warriors. The apron bears the image of a shield, balances, and a hand of justice.

The second symbol of the jewel, the sword, is between Darius and
Zerubbabel. This states the obvious division between Zerubbabel the builder and apostle, and the courtroom of the King. These degrees place the freemason into a warrior fraternity. 

A false warrior mantle is placed upon the mason. This mantle is progressively strengthened with the passing of each subsequent degree. Spiritually, these two degrees bind the Mason into an alliance with the Prince of Persia – Daniel 8. This alliance is central to all the remaining degrees, for freemasonry defends the building of the third Temple – of the Great Architect of the Universe – through wielding the sword of “the law of the Meds and Persians, which does not alter” – Daniel 6:8.

The false Masonic warrior will be further revealed in the York rite.
The Prince of Persia keeps us intimidated and without the blessing of revelation.  The law of the Medes and the Persians is an unwritten law of which we are often unaware.

Freemasons are guardians of the secrecy of this law. It is a law of control, domination and antichrist. It is also the law of man, and sits above Godly authority and godly government. And the Prince of Persia is this law !

Freemasonry uses this law to deliver humanity from misery and bondage [they think].  The law of the Medes and Persians thus usurps the place of the LAMB OF GOD Who takes away the sin of the world ! This is seen in the use of the password “ My Lord” within the degree of the Knights of Malta (York Rite), which means “All is under Law”!

From the 15th degree onwards, every mason understand himself to be a knight sworn to wield the sword of retribution by which infringement of the Law of the Medes and Persians is punished.”

THE 26TH DEGREE: PRINCE OF MERCY
In this degree the mason wears an apron with the initials I.H.S., meaning Saviour of Mankind, with a flaming heart of fire. [ I remember I.H.S.on many catholic things-pris] This is a copy of the Egyptian trinity of Osiris, Isis and Horus.  Freemasonry takes the church right back to Egypt.

THE MARK OF THE COVENANT
The office of LUCIFER is really the Prince of No Mercy , and is a blasphemy of the mercy of JESUS. The office of the Prince of Mercy has an arrow and spear for the making of covenant. The candidate is also given a fish of ivory with the Rose Croix as a symbol of covenant. The arrow is released into the heart of flame and the candidate receives a mark of covenant to the BEAST, the False Prophet, and the DRAGON. The candidate takes on the Mark of the Prince of the power of the air. He is also making a covenant with Abraham and Noah, which is actually broken covenant.  Water and oil is anointed in the shape of the Tau Cross on the forehead. The candidate is anointed into a witchcraft covenant, a triple covenant to the Great Architect of the Universe. [ GAOTU]

RENOUNCE THE COVENANT TO THE BEAST, THE DRAGON AND THE FALSE PROPHET.
RENOUNCE this oath: “If I violate my obligation I consent to being condemned, cast out and despised by the whole universe. The candidate receives ancient dogmas of the teaching of Hindus, Buddhists, Druids, Egyptians, Hebrews and Christians. All are said to have golden threads of truth which the true Mason can discern.

RENOUNCE THE LETTERS IHS – the false savior, Lucifer. [ more on the letters at: www.catholic-saints.info/catholic-symbols/ihs-christian-symbol.htm
  “The Definition and Meaning of the I.H.S. as a Catholic Symbol - The I.H.S. Christian Emblem (containing periods, or full stops) is an acronym of the Latin: Iesus Hominum Salvator which translates as Jesus, Saviour of man. Saint Ignatius Loyola is represented in Religious Art by the monogram of the Jesuit order, I. H. S.” ]
