The Naked Carpenter movie begins with the arrival of Hannah, a 60-year-old Ben Elohim king whose transformation into the remnant Army of the 144,000 has begun. As a temple of Yah’s wisdom, Hannah knows that the end of the age of Adam is upon the earth and that Yah’s judgment and kingdom are about to forcefully advance until everything made in man’s image ultimately burns. As she walks across a mountain valley, she holds her plumb-bob necklace (Isaiah 28:17) and listens to Yah.
A kingdom is no kingdom without kings and co-regents; for this reason, Yah is called the “King of kings and Lord of lords” (1 Timothy 6:15). For two decades Hannah has been announcing the kingship of various kings assigned to her by Yah. She has also been directed to test their love for Yah by offering to them, unconditionally, various “Eves” -- the desires of their fleshy and uncircumcised hearts. To date, all of Hannah’s kings betrayed her, and, having failed to recognize Father’s wisdom hiding within her they exchanged their crowns for their various “Eves”. Hannah knows her new king-in-the-making must face his own “Eve” in the valley of decision. She practices throwing her iron scepter into the air for the soon-coming clash when she will unleash her new king’s unseen “dragons” upon him for him to face.
She walks past the mailbox of his childhood homestead, which was made by his father to represent the 613 commandments given to Moses before entering the Land of Milk and Honey (the mailbox consists of a milk can and bee box). She holds her plumb-line necklace, peers into the bee box and knowingly smiles to herself. She strolls through a children’s park where she sometimes meets her sister, Prudence (Prudence is the sister to Wisdom, Proverbs 7:4). A man, walking into her path, confesses to having lied to his wife. Hannah retorts, “Without agreement, there is no marriage!” She sits next to a young man made uncomfortable by her presence and who nervously runs away. A boy admits to having stolen bubble gum and throws his heist into the trash.
Such is the outcome for Hannah’ wisdom from Yah that predictably collides with the wisdom of the world which is foolishness to Yah and vice versa (Isaiah 55:8)! Single-eyed and abandoned by her kings for their love of the world, she dwells far from the cities and valleys below while serving Yah from her mountaintop. From this position, she bops her king-in-the-making in the crown and challenges him:
“Shall you abandon me too…so that all you are is a naked king…no glory, no wisdom, no crown?”
In her tent of meeting with Yah, Hannah receives details about the new king she is to rescue from the world and ultimately crown. She questions the task, having failed to crown any of Yah’s kings to date. She is surprised to learn that this one is different; he is her “twin”. She understands she is to offer him free residence at the mountain mini-farm and as well as ample financial compensation and keys to run the business. She accepts the assignment, and pleads with Yah for the predictable “Judas Act” to be consummated sooner than later!
Joseph Dekan, a 54-year-old broke realtor plagued by tics and visual hallucinations, passes Hannah on the road while on the way to a house showing. He notices her eccentric dress and offers a half-hearted wave. He predictably frightens away his clients with uncontrolled outbursts and an unwanted hallucination of “Holy Joe.” Hannah walks into the property, offers a friendly salutation to “Holy Joe” and offers Joseph free room and board topped with a job to run “Father’s business” making natural medicines.
It is here that we first see that Hannah has a mature and intimate relationship with Yah. When Joseph asks her how he can be sure that her generous offer is for real, she makes no case for herself but instead acknowledges that nothing can be done without the Father. She reasons that since He alone is the source of their meeting, then He alone can deliver the horse to the watering hole! She tops off her wisdom with a bitter crack from past disappointments: “Whether or not you drink, remains to be seen!” Her exit is as unheralded as her entrance.
Hannah’s offer to Joseph is the voice of the Bride who offers all to drink freely from the water of life:
And the Spirit and the Bride say, “Come!” And let him who hears say, “Come!” And let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him drink freely from the water of life (Revelation 22:17).
The provisions offered to Joseph are the means for him to freely exit the confusion of Babylon. It points to prophecy regarding the end of the age of Adam and the call given to Yah’s disciples to flee the world and its pending judgments:
"And I heard another voice from heaven saying, 'Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues'"(Revelation 18:4).
"My people, go out of the midst of her! And let everyone deliver himself from the fierce anger of the LORD" (Jeremiah 51:45).
Out of options, Joseph promptly proceeds to Hannah’s house. Before she announces to him his unknown spiritual heritage, she asks him if he knows who he is. While drinking from a “Mad as a Hatter” coffee cup, he responds that he’s a “big nobody.” Hannah retorts, “That’s a great place to start...are you afraid to be a nobody!?” Notably, both Hannah and Joseph wear their hats indoors, but whether either one of them is “mad” or even off-center remains to be seen!
Hannah opens Joseph’s father’s Bible which he neither recognizes nor acknowledges and she points with his father’s feather-pointer to a single line of scripture declaring, “This is who you are. Read verse four, just the first line – right here!” Joseph reads:
"These are the ones who were not defiled with women, for they are virgins (Revelation 14:4)."
Unimpressed and sure there’s nothing more to read, Joseph removes his reading glasses, shakes his head, reclines on the couch and responds, “I’m no virgin.”
Hannah proceeds to explain in simple (but overlooked) terms how the virgins of this passage are obedient incarnate angels who, unlike the disobedient incarnate angels of Jude, Enoch’s Book of the Watchers and Genesis chapter 6, serve Yah as spiritual virgins who did not defile themselves with women. She explains that the fallen angels who married women defiled themselves by building their own kingdoms on earth, rather than building Yah’s kingdom on earth. It is from this kingdom that most men tightly embrace that Hannah shakes Joseph's foundation with a loud booming voice demanding:
"YOU MUST COME OUT OF AGREEMENT WITH THEM, MY PEOPLE, AND MARRY ME!"
The first mandate given to Adam was to be fruitful and to fill the earth with his progeny – so certainly relations with a wife by no means renders a man “defiled”! Furthermore, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Solomon and David all had multiple wives and concubines, and scripture never even hints that these men were “defiled” by their women! Notably, scripture assigns “adultery” to a married woman who has extramarital relations or to a man who has relations with another man’s wife (Deuteronomy 22:22-26). In Yah's eyes, the wife belongs to the husband, so again, a physical relationship with a woman/women does not defile a man. Surely there is another explanation for Revelation 14:4, and Hannah presents it to Joseph. Does he have ears to hear?
Many apocryphal sources define who it is that defiled themselves with women (angels are also called “sons of God”); here are two from Judeo-Christian scripture:
And the angels who did not keep their proper domain, but left their own abode, He has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness for the judgment of the great day, as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities around them in a similar manner to these, having given themselves over to sexual immorality and gone after strange flesh (Jude 6-7).
Now it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born to them, that the sons of God saw the daughters of men, that they were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves of all whom they chose…There were giants on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown (Genesis 6:1-2, 4).
In chapters 6-11 in Enoch’s Book of Watchers, these “sons of God” (angels called the “Watchers”) willfully descended from heaven and impregnated human women with offspring who became giants. They defiled themselves with this unholy coupling and taught their “wives” sorcery, astrology and other occult practices (Book of Watchers, 7:1).. God warns Noah about the coming deluge to cleanse the land of the defilement.
While Hannah does not elaborate on these details, Joseph remains unmoved: “Well, I don’t see any giants now”.
Hannah explains while giants are no longer seen, that their spirits yet roam the earth and eat men for lunch. These are the demons that Yahshuah cast out of men and mandated that his disciples do likewise. She asks Joseph why he hasn’t faced his own giants – his own demons. She gets another smug response: “I don’t believe in demons.”
And such is the stance of many today, who, like the angels who left their heavenly stations to build their own kingdoms on earth, prefer not to believe any of the accounts of these fallen ones and prefer to do the same – build their own families and kingdoms on earth!
Hannah explains that the hybrid offspring called the giants are still building their kingdoms, and only “look” human. This is in keeping with Yahshuah’s prediction that the end of the age of Adam would be like the days of Noah (Matthew 24:37-39).

After Joseph seemingly fails his test, wrangles with his dragons and runs back into the world, Hannah receives an interesting revelation from Yah. She learns that all of Yah’s kings which she failed to crown are irreversibly broken vessels – all narcissists with broken children yet locked inside their hearts. The key to rescuing her king from an insatiable need to seek approval from the world is to release the imprisoned child within. She is to do this by having Joseph foster a son.
As the king redeems the abandoned son, he saves himself.
Hannah receives custody of Joshua McElroy, an eight-year-old unknown (to himself and the world) “king” who lost his family to a fire while at camp. Hannah takes him fishing on her farm, and is unable to rig the lines, knowing that Joseph will correct the broken fishing lines. The same evening of Joshua’s arrival, Joseph returns to Hannah's refuge having broken the bank. Hannah receives him knowing this time that he is already a broken vessel and doesn’t need to be chased by any more dragons.
Joseph takes Joshua fishing and learns that Joshua is plagued by his own dragons – recurrent nightmares of fire chasing him. Joseph soon learns the source of the boy’s inner torment, and quickly takes him under his wing and slays the lie.
Even so, the king yet has his unresolved entanglements that require a complex unraveling before joining Hannah to fish for men in the final harvest. Hannah takes to the task of arranging a soon-coming visit with Joseph’s mother to uncover the truth of Joseph's past and the truth of why he can't remember his father's face or anything about his father before the day he left. These are the ultimate dragons that need to be slayed with Hannah's help to set Joseph free to hear, see and serve Yah.
Hannah sends Joseph to a dark cave to face his heart and his Father. The unraveling of Joseph's heart begins to set "Joey" free to see his Father's face.
After Hannah and Joseph face off Joseph’s mother and learn the truth about Joseph’s father, Joseph returns to his heart-cave to seek the face of Yah. Here he learns much more about his father than he ever thought imaginable – including the reason for his faceless visions of Holy Joe and uncontrolled outbursts: “Way to me! I got it! BAM!”. Here follows the most convoluted sequences of the story, but you'll find no spoilers here. Watch the movie!
