SCRIPTURE UNDERSTANDING OF GOAD:

An Instrument of Torture 1 SAMUEL 13:21 21 Yet they had a file for the mattocks, and for the coulters, and for the forks, and for the axes, and to sharpen the goads. 600 Men Killed With, by Shamgar, a Judge (Hero) of Israel

JUDGES 3:31 31 And after him was Shamgar the son of Anath, which slew of the Philistines six hundred men with an ox goad: and he also delivered Israel. • Of Mental Incentive

ECCLESIASTES 12:11 11 The words of the wise are as goads, and as nails fastened by the masters of assemblies, which are given from one shepherd. .........................................................................................................

We can see here in Ecc 12:11 that the words of the wise are as goads and nails which are given from one Shepherd. Of course that Sherperd would be Yahusha, even Paul was asked by Yahusha "Why do you kick at the goads." This teaching is right through the scripture, being flogged by Yahusha means he loves us (Heb 12). The pain of that scourge, or goad like a scorpion sting, or nail in your head, is the chastisement of our behaviour.


The Turah is a goad to all who read it, until obedience to the wise sayings of our Shepherd are behaved in our lives, Yahusha will not stop prodding us until we overcome the filth of this world and reach the clean, pure, behaviour of Turah, as a living example of His dominion in our lives. This journey is the most wonderful, painful, and privileged experience, a person could ever embark on.

Those refusing the wise sayings of Turah will suffer inhalation and destruction, which is almost here for the human race. These words are not mine, but have been prophesied, we all carry the blood guilt as Mark says unless we change our behaviour to the divine laws laid down in Turah.
