Two thousand years ago, a prophet had a vision of the future. The time he saw appears to be in our very near future. Pharmaceutical drugs would be prevalent. Homosexuality and violence would be widespread. There would be earthquakes, wars, and famines throughout the globe.

He warned of a huge, powerful government with global influence. It would be tied in with major corporations. The government would be very wicked at its core. The leader would be evil and narcissistic. He would be idolized by the people, and would demand their worship. A powerful, false, religious system would endorse him, and aid him in his endeavors.

This government would have the technology to be able to control all the people on Earth. In order to be able to buy or sell things, the people would have to take a mark in their forehead or in their hand. All who wouldn’t would be shut out of the system.

It would be a time of great tyranny, and a time of much bloodshed. The mark would require a pledge of loyalty. This pledge would be a rejection of the true and living God–Jesus Christ. All who took the mark would be forever damned.

This day is fast approaching. Look around you. Look at your culture. Look at what the idols of music, movies, and sports are promoting. How much of this prophecy has not yet been fulfilled?

How could a man have made all this up 2,000 years ago? Technology did not even exist in that day. People did not have indoor toilets. Water had to be carried from wells. People grew their own food . . . raised their own animals. Only shamans and witch doctors employed drugs. Earthquakes were exceedingly rare. There were no corporations.

Two thousand years ago he saw it. Today things are falling into place. I urge you to read the last book of the Bible: Revelation.

——————————————————————————————-
Oh–and one last thing . . . a major twist in the plot: what is today calling itself ‘Christianity’ is not what the Bible calls Christianity. Today’s false Christianity may very well be an integral part of the false religious system that the prophet warned about.

Remember–it was the religious leaders of His day that persecuted and killed Jesus and His followers. Put your faith in GOD–not the teachings of men. Read the Bible for yourself, and ask God to show you what it means and how it is relevant to you.

If I understand Bible prophecy right, there is a fantastic event coming, even in the midst of the darkest hour the world has ever, or will ever, endure.  No, it’s not the Rapture . . . it will happen before that.  It is an event that no one talks about, that I believe has been hidden from our understanding–hidden in plain sight, for all the prophets talk of it.  That event is the revealing of the identities of those who are descended from the ‘missing’ ten tribes of Israel.

‘Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured nor numbered; and it shall come to pass, [that] in the place where it was said unto them, Ye [are] not my people, [there] it shall be said unto them, [Ye are] the sons of the living God.  Then shall the children of Judah and the children of Israel be gathered together, and appoint themselves one head, and they shall come up out of the land: for great [shall be] the day of Jezreel.‘  (Hosea 1:10-11)

Long ago, God divorced the ten tribes of the Northern Kingdom, also known as ‘Israel’ (the Southern Kingdom was known as Judah–today’s ‘Jews’).  The prophecies of Hosea tell of the day when God forgives Israel and brings her back to Himself.

‘For the children of Israel shall abide many days without a king, and without a prince, and without a sacrifice, and without an image, and without an ephod, and [without] teraphim:  Afterward shall the children of Israel return, and seek the LORD their God, and David their king; and shall fear the LORD and his goodness in the latter days.’  (Hosea 3:4-5)

Prior to that day (and on the horizon now) is the day that the eyes of the Jews will be opened:

‘And it shall come to pass in that day, [that] I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem. And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for [his] only [son], and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for [his] firstborn.’  (Zech. 12:9-10)

‘In that day’ is referring to the time of the Psalms 83 war, when the enemies of the modern day nation of ‘Israel’ will make war against her and take her land.  Although they will at first prevail against her, God is going to somehow, supernaturally, intervene and turn things around.

‘Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah [and] against Jerusalem. And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.

In that day, saith the LORD, I will smite every horse with astonishment, and his rider with madness: and I will open mine eyes upon the house of Judah, and will smite every horse of the people with blindness.‘  (Zech. 12:2-4)

But I will have mercy upon the house of Judah, and will save them by the LORD their God, and will not save them by bow, nor by sword, nor by battle, by horses, nor by horsemen.‘  (Hosea 1:7)

Then ‘Israel’ will actually have her borders enlarged!

‘In that day will I make the governors of Judah like an hearth of fire among the wood, and like a torch of fire in a sheaf; and they shall devour all the people round about, on the right hand and on the left: and Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place, [even] in Jerusalem.’  (Zech. 12:6)

All this is in preparation for the day of ‘Jezreel’.  This will be an event of momentous importance–so much so that God named a place in the Promised Land, in anticipation of that future day . . .a day that many of us will live to see, and some may even be a part of!

‘Jezreel’ means ‘God sows’.  What does God sow?

‘ . . . and they shall hear Jezreel.  And I will sow her unto me in the earth; and I will have mercy upon her that had not obtained mercy; and I will say to [them which were] not my people, Thou [art] my people; and they shall say, [Thou art] my God.’  (Hosea 2:22-23)

First Israel, where she lives now, will be punished, purged, and cleansed.  Then the remnant will be returned to the Promised Land.  ‘Jezreel’ will be a day of great rejoicing!  It is the day of forgiveness and restoration . . . of the remarriage of Israel to Jehovah God!!

‘And I will betroth thee unto me for ever; yea, I will betroth thee unto me in righteousness, and in judgment, and in lovingkindness, and in mercies. I will even betroth thee unto me in faithfulness: and thou shalt know the LORD.’  (Hosea 2:19-20)

For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all  countries, and will bring you into your own land. Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you. A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do [them]. And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God.‘ (Ezek. 36:24-28)

I believe this complete, reunited Israel is the ‘woman’ spoken of in Revelation 12:6 and 14 . . .

‘And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred [and] threescore days. . . And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.’

”Therefore, behold, I will allure her, and bring her into the wilderness, and speak comfortably unto her. And I will give her her vineyards from thence, and the valley of Achor for a door of hope: and she shall sing there, as in the days of her youth, and as in the day when she came up out of the land of Egypt. . .

 And in that day will I make a covenant for them with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven, and [with] the creeping things of the ground: and I will break the bow and the sword and the battle out of the earth, and will make them to lie down safely.’* (Hosea 2:14-16, 18) 

*Compare this to Ezekiel 34:25 and 28 . . .

‘And I will make with them a covenant of peace, and will cause the evil beasts to cease out of the land: and they shall dwell safely in the wilderness, and sleep in the woods . . . And they shall no more be a prey to the heathen, neither shall the beast of the land devour them; but they shall dwell safely, and none shall make [them] afraid.’

Read the following passages for context, to confirm that they’re related and that this understanding is correct: Hosea 1-3, Ezekiel 34 (and 36-37), and Jeremiah 23:1-8.  They all foretell this grand event! I’ve only hit the highlights of what’s contained in these passages.

Let us stop living in fear of what The Antichrist is going to try to do to us, and know that God has a wonderful plan in store!  Even in a time of gross darkness, there will be light and rejoicing, provision and protection for His children.

‘Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou [art] with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.’ (Psalm 23:4-5)

‘And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.  And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.  And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.’  (Rev. 12:14-16)

Let us live with abandon, and put our faith completely in Him.

‘And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.‘  (Rev. 12:11)

‘If it be [so], our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver [us] out of thine hand, O king. But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.’  (Daniel 3:17-18)

Faith is the oil for your lamp.  If you hope to be one of the ‘wise virgins’, you must build your faith NOW, by reading His Word.

‘So then faith [cometh] by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.’  (Romans 10:17)

I cannot impart my faith to you–not now, not later.  Only the Holy Spirit can fill you with faith, and that comes by prayer and reading His Word.  Don’t neglect these things now, while you still have time.

It is also through the Word that we are taught how to walk in righteousness, and our minds are cleansed and renewed.  You cannot walk in the Spirit without prayer and reading your Bible.  If you are not walking in the Spirit, then you are walking in the flesh.  When you walk in the flesh, you don’t grow spiritually or bear spiritual fruit.  You are also choosing a very dangerous path–especially in these days of great deception.

You must walk IN THE SPIRIT for the promise of ‘no condemnation’ to apply to you:

‘[There is] therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.’  (Romans 8:1)

If we hope to be part of the remnant, then we must ‘walk worthy’ NOW.

‘For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of [them] whose heart [is] perfect toward him. . . ‘  (2 Chronicles 16:9)

‘Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.’  (Luke 21:36)

The exodus from Israel was a foreshadowing of what is soon to happen.  There is a great and exciting event on the horizon!  Let the hope of this day encourage you through the trials, testings, and persecution that are to come.  Never give up hope.

‘Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth.  In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this [is] his name whereby he shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.

Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that they shall no more say, The LORD liveth, which brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt;  But, The LORD liveth, which brought up and which led the seed of the house of Israel out of the north country, and from all countries whither I had driven them; and they shall dwell in their own land.’  (Jeremiah 23:5-8)

(What I’ve learned and shared with you today is further confirmation, for me, of what I wrote some time ago: Worthy to Escape

This is NOT a ‘thus saith the Lord’ . . . this is an opinion about something that might be set to occur that could potentially be VERY devastating for many ‘Christians’ who have been led to believe certain things . . .

We live in a society that has become so accustomed to the pretenders on television, that we view it more as a source of news and truth, than as the propaganda mouthpiece that it is.  Television speaks what the wealthy and powerful want told, in a way that the populace wants to hear it.  Television is the medium, to ensure that the message of the powers that be, is accepted by those they are seeking to dominate and control.

We live in a time of great technological advancements.  Although we know that technology makes possible great signs, wonders, and illusions . . . how many of us don’t believe what we see with our own eyes?

We have become conditioned to believe that there are aliens . . . or someone . . . ‘out there’.  Theories abound.

We are such techno geeks that if someone were to tell us that there were not adequate words for the Bible prophets of old to describe things . . . that if they could explain things in terms of today’s technology . . . most ‘Christians’ would believe it.  (Alex Jones recently reinterpreted Ezekiel’s vision of God to include a circular space craft!)

We know that ‘angel’ means ‘messenger’.  With all of the rewritten, reinterpreted Bibles out there, based on corrupted manuscripts, many people believe that we cannot be too dogmatic in our understanding of God’s Word.  They believe we should be liberal in our interpretations.  I believe the strategy to bring about this change of attitude towards God Word, was planned by our adversary a long time ago.

Now, with all of this in mind, let me put forth a potential ‘perfect storm’ of deception that may be targeted at believers . . . please try to hear me out, even if I say some things you don’t agree with.  Please pray whether any or all of the things I say may be true.

I can’t say for sure that the following scenario is going to happen . . . all I’m trying to point out is that we seem to have been prepared for such a scenario to go off pretty successfully, if it does happen to be something our adversary has planned.

Jesus told us certain things that would happen at His return.  (Please read Matthew 24 in the King James version to see for yourself SPECIFICALLY what Jesus said.)

Because people have been conditioned to believe in a loose, liberal interpretation of God’s Word, let me show you what most of today’s ‘Christians’ could be convinced is a fulfillment of Scripture:

  • tribulation (could be misinterpreted as earthquakes, wars, etc.)
  • then the sun will be darkened (could be misinterpreted as an eclipse)
  • and the moon will not give her light (could be misinterpreted as an eclipse)
  • and the stars will fall from heaven (could be misinterpreted as a meteor shower)
  • And THEN you will see Him (can be simulated by technology)
  • coming with clouds (could be misinterpreted as literal clouds)
  • and you will HEAR the sound of a great trumpet (can be simulated by technology)
  • and the angels will come to gather you (fallen angels, pretending to be aliens/’messengers’, can make an appearance [real or staged] and invite people to come with them)

I believe the preTribulation Rapture doctrine is a set up.  It definitely isn’t Scriptural.  But what would it be the best set up FOR (besides a great falling away)?  I believe it is a perfect set up for a false Rapture.

There WILL be some event, at the END of the Tribulation (see verses 29 and 21), that causes the sun to be darkened, the moon to appear blood red, and stars to fall from the sky SIMULTANEOUSLY, I believe.  Then, you will see the sign of the Son of man, and you will see Jesus Himself, encompassed by the host of heaven (‘clouds’).

The seventh angel will sound his trumpet and angels will come and gather the people of God from the face of the Earth, the heavens, the sea, and the grave. There will be no flying saucers involved.  There will be no technology involved.  You will not stand in line.  You will not need a ticket.  Wherever you are, the angels will come and find you. None of His children, that have endured, will be left behind. Every eye will see Him at His return, AFTER the three and a half year reign of the Antichrist.

If you took the time to prayerfully read Matthew 24 in the KJV for yourself, then you should see the difference between what Jesus said WOULD occur, and what people may be led to mistakenly believe.

Do not let people reinterpret God’s Word for you and tell you it is vague, or that certain words may mean something else.  Find out for yourself.  Read the passages in a KJV and look up the words in a Strong’s Concordance/Hebrew-Greek dictionary, to find their meanings.  (Ezekiel’s vision of God, for example, was NOT a vision of a flying saucer!)

There are a number of reasons I’m sharing this possible scenario.  Among them:

  • Chemtrails that create a virtual plasma screen above the earth (so you can see ‘Jesus’ and His ‘angels’)
  • Technology that allows holographic images to be projected (so you can see ‘Jesus’ and His ‘angels’)
  • Technology that can produce voices in your head (so you can hear the sound of a great trumpet, and the voice of ‘Jesus’)
  • Many strange CLOUD formations recently, that may be masking some type of space crafts  (because of the loose interpretation that He will be coming ‘with clouds’)
  • The media obsession with aliens, fallen angels, gods, etc. that is preparing people to accept them
  • The messages being (demonically) channeled to people by ‘ascended masters’, ‘aliens’,  and ‘angels’

But, most importantly, because I don’t believe that Jesus wasted any words.  He gave a warning, to those of us living in the end times.  It too, is found in Matthew 24, and comes immediately before His description of the (real) Rapture, that comes at the end of the Tribulation.  His words seem to predict some kind of event . . .

‘Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; GO NOT FORTH: behold, [he is] in the secret chambers; BELIEVE [IT] NOT . For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.’  (Matthew 24:26-28)

When this invitation comes–and it will, even if it’s not the scenario I put forth–DO NOT ACCEPT IT!  Understand: those who accept this invitation WILL DIE.  Theirs will be the carcasses, where the eagles gather!

Read and remember Matthew 24.  It could save your life!!

Interestingly, Jordan seems to be the only Middle Eastern nation that the Antichrist spares from his conquests.  (See Daniel 11:41) The timing of this passage from Isaiah, is at the return of Christ, at the end of the Tribulation.

‘Come near, ye nations, to hear; and hearken, ye people: let the earth hear, and all that is therein; the world, and all things that come forth of it.  For the indignation of the LORD [is] upon all nations, and [his] fury upon all their armies: he hath utterly destroyed them, he hath delivered them to the slaughter.   [See Rev. 6:15-17, 19:11-21]

 

Their slain also shall be cast out, and their stink shall come up out of their carcases, and the mountains shall be melted with their blood. [See Ezekiel 39:11-15]

 

And all the host of heaven shall be dissolved, and the heavens shall be rolled together as a scroll: and all their host shall fall down, as the leaf falleth off from the vine, and as a falling [fig] from the fig tree.  [See Rev. 6:12-17, 12:7-9]

 

For my sword shall be bathed in heaven: behold, it shall come down upon Idumea, and upon the people of my curse, to judgment.  The sword of the LORD is filled with blood, it is made fat with fatness, [and] with the blood of lambs and goats, with the fat of the kidneys of rams: for the LORD hath a sacrifice in Bozrah, and a great slaughter in the land of Idumea (Edom aka Jordan).  And the unicorns shall come down with them, and the bullocks with the bulls; and their land shall be soaked with blood, and their dust made fat with fatness.

For [it is] the day of the LORD’S vengeance, [and] the year of recompences for the controversy of Zion.  And the streams thereof shall be turned into pitch, and the dust thereof into brimstone, and the land thereof shall become burning pitch.  It shall not be quenched night nor day; the smoke thereof shall go up for ever: from generation to generation it shall lie waste; none shall pass through it for ever and ever.  [See Rev. 19:20]

 

But the cormorant and the bittern shall possess it; the owl also and the raven shall dwell in it: and he shall stretch out upon it the line of confusion, and the stones of emptiness.  They shall call the nobles thereof to the kingdom, but none [shall be] there, and all her princes shall be nothing.  And thorns shall come up in her palaces, nettles and brambles in the fortresses thereof: and it shall be an habitation of dragons, [and] a court for owls.  The wild beasts of the desert shall also meet with the wild beasts of the island, and the satyr shall cry to his fellow; the screech owl also shall rest there, and find for herself a place of rest.  There shall the great owl make her nest, and lay, and hatch, and gather under her shadow: there shall the vultures also be gathered, every one with her mate. [See Malachi 1:1-5]

 

Seek ye out of the book of the LORD, and read: no one of these shall fail, none shall want her mate: for my mouth it hath commanded, and his spirit it hath gathered them.  And he hath cast the lot for them, and his hand hath divided it unto them by line: they shall possess it for ever, from generation to generation shall they dwell therein.’  (Isaiah 34:1-17)

 

The Lord knew the future, from the beginning.  Perhaps this is why He said

‘As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.’  (Romans 9:13)

There was a time, in America, when most people were well aware of God, and gave Him the respect He deserved.

 

‘Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed [it] unto them.  For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, [even] his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse’  (Romans 1:19-20)

 

Yet, there were men among them

 

‘ . . . that, when they knew God, they glorified [him] not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.’  (Romans 1:21)

 

Rather than thank God for His bounty and blessings, they sought to accumulate wealth and power for themselves.  In their cleverness, and with the help of fallen angels, they devised many captivating inventions.  They used these inventions to draw others away from God, and into their ways of thinking.

 

‘Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,’  (Romans 1:22)

 

Before long the people, and their children, withdrew from the beauty of God’s creation and began spending more and more of their time indoors, partaking of a world of fantasy and vain imaginations.

 

‘And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:  Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.’  (Romans 1:23-25)

 

Having grown up in this world of fantasy, it became the reality of those who were trained by it.

 

‘And even as they did not like to retain God in [their] knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness;

full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity;

whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:’  (Romans 1:28-31)

 

‘ . . . God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:  And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.’  (Romans 1:26-27)

 

Eventually, even those who claimed to walk in His ways

 

‘Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only [did] the same, but [had] pleasure in them that [did] them.’  (Romans 1:32)

 

Their judgment was not far off, for God judges nations . . . once they have known Him . . . by whether they continue to walk with Him, or whether they turn aside from His ways.  As He warned long ago . . .

 

‘ . . . it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God . . . that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee:

Cursed [shalt] thou [be] in the city, and cursed [shalt] thou [be] in the field.   Cursed [shall be] thy basket and thy store.  Cursed [shall be] the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy land, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep.  Cursed [shalt] thou [be] when thou comest in, and cursed [shalt] thou [be] when thou goest out.

The LORD shall send upon thee cursing, vexation, and rebuke, in all that thou settest thine hand unto for to do, until thou be destroyed, and until thou perish quickly; because of the wickedness of thy doings, whereby thou hast forsaken me.

The LORD shall make the pestilence cleave unto thee, until he have consumed thee from off the land, whither thou goest to possess it.

The LORD shall smite thee with a consumption, and with a fever, and with an inflammation, and with an extreme burning, and with the sword, and with blasting, and with mildew; and they shall pursue thee until thou perish.  And thy heaven that [is] over thy head shall be brass, and the earth that is under thee [shall be] iron.  The LORD shall make the rain of thy land powder and dust: from heaven shall it come down upon thee, until thou be destroyed. The LORD shall cause thee to be smitten before thine enemies: thou shalt go out one way against them, and flee seven ways before them: and shalt be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth.  And thy carcase shall be meat unto all fowls of the air, and unto the beasts of the earth, and no man shall fray [them] away.

The LORD will smite thee with the botch of Egypt, and with the emerods, and with the scab, and with the itch, whereof thou canst not be healed.  The LORD shall smite thee with madness, and blindness, and astonishment of heart:  And thou shalt grope at noonday, as the blind gropeth in darkness, and thou shalt not prosper in thy ways: and thou shalt be only oppressed and spoiled evermore, and no man shall save [thee].

Thou shalt betroth a wife, and another man shall lie with her: thou shalt build an house, and thou shalt not dwell therein: thou shalt plant a vineyard, and shalt not gather the grapes thereof. Thine ox [shall be] slain before thine eyes, and thou shalt not eat thereof: thine ass [shall be] violently taken away from before thy face, and shall not be restored to thee: thy sheep [shall be] given unto thine enemies, and thou shalt have none to rescue [them].  Thy sons and thy daughters [shall be] given unto another people, and thine eyes shall look, and fail [with longing] for them all the day long: and [there shall be] no might in thine hand.

The fruit of thy land, and all thy labours, shall a nation which thou knowest not eat up; and thou shalt be only oppressed and crushed alway:  So that thou shalt be mad for the sight of thine eyes which thou shalt see.  The LORD shall smite thee in the knees, and in the legs, with a sore botch that cannot be healed, from the sole of thy foot unto the top of thy head.  The LORD shall bring thee, and thy king which thou shalt set over thee, unto a nation which neither thou nor thy fathers have known; and there shalt thou serve other gods, wood and stone.  And thou shalt become an astonishment, a proverb, and a byword, among all nations whither the LORD shall lead thee.

Thou shalt carry much seed out into the field, and shalt gather [but] little in; for the locust shall consume it.  Thou shalt plant vineyards, and dress [them], but shalt neither drink [of] the wine, nor gather [the grapes]; for the worms shall eat them.  Thou shalt have olive trees throughout all thy coasts, but thou shalt not anoint [thyself] with the oil; for thine olive shall cast [his fruit].  Thou shalt beget sons and daughters, but thou shalt not enjoy them; for they shall go into captivity.  All thy trees and fruit of thy land shall the locust consume.  The stranger that [is] within thee shall get up above thee very high; and thou shalt come down very low.  He shall lend to thee, and thou shalt not lend to him: he shall be the head, and thou shalt be the tail.

Moreover all these curses shall come upon thee, and shall pursue thee, and overtake thee, till thou be destroyed; because thou hearkenedst not unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which he commanded thee:  And they shall be upon thee for a sign and for a wonder, and upon thy seed for ever.  Because thou servedst not the LORD thy God with joyfulness, and with gladness of heart, for the abundance of all [things]; Therefore shalt thou serve thine enemies which the LORD shall send against thee, in hunger, and in thirst, and in nakedness, and in want of all [things]: and he shall put a yoke of iron upon thy neck, until he have destroyed thee.

The LORD shall bring a nation against thee from far, from the end of the earth, [as swift] as the eagle flieth; a nation whose tongue thou shalt not understand;  A nation of fierce countenance, which shall not regard the person of the old, nor shew favour to the young: And he shall eat the fruit of thy cattle, and the fruit of thy land, until thou be destroyed: which [also] shall not leave thee [either] corn, wine, or oil, [or] the increase of thy kine, or flocks of thy sheep, until he have destroyed thee.   And he shall besiege thee in all thy gates, until thy high and fenced walls come down, wherein thou trustedst, throughout all thy land: and he shall besiege thee in all thy gates throughout all thy land, which the LORD thy God hath given thee.

And thou shalt eat the fruit of thine own body, the flesh of thy sons and of thy daughters, which the LORD thy God hath given thee, in the siege, and in the straitness, wherewith thine enemies shall distress thee:  [So that] the man [that is] tender among you, and very delicate, his eye shall be evil toward his brother, and toward the wife of his bosom, and toward the remnant of his children which he shall leave:  So that he will not give to any of them of the flesh of his children whom he shall eat: because he hath nothing left him in the siege, and in the straitness, wherewith thine enemies shall distress thee in all thy gates. The tender and delicate woman among you, which would not adventure to set the sole of her foot upon the ground for delicateness and tenderness, her eye shall be evil toward the husband of her bosom, and toward her son, and toward her daughter, And toward her young one that cometh out from between her feet, and toward her children which she shall bear: for she shall eat them for want of all [things] secretly in the siege and straitness, wherewith thine enemy shall distress thee in thy gates.

If thou wilt not observe to do all the words of this law that are written in this book, that thou mayest fear this glorious and fearful name, THE LORD THY GOD; Then the LORD will make thy plagues wonderful, and the plagues of thy seed, [even] great plagues, and of long continuance, and sore sicknesses, and of long continuance.  Moreover he will bring upon thee all the diseases of Egypt, which thou wast afraid of; and they shall cleave unto thee.  Also every sickness, and every plague, which [is] not written in the book of this law, them will the LORD bring upon thee, until thou be destroyed.  And ye shall be left few in number, whereas ye were as the stars of heaven for multitude; because thou wouldest not obey the voice of the LORD thy God.

And it shall come to pass, [that] as the LORD rejoiced over you to do you good, and to multiply you; so the LORD will rejoice over you to destroy you, and to bring you to nought; and ye shall be plucked from off the land whither thou goest to possess it.  And the LORD shall scatter thee among all people, from the one end of the earth even unto the other; and there thou shalt serve other gods, which neither thou nor thy fathers have known, [even] wood and stone. And among these nations shalt thou find no ease, neither shall the sole of thy foot have rest: but the LORD shall give thee there a trembling heart, and failing of eyes, and sorrow of mind:  And thy life shall hang in doubt before thee; and thou shalt fear day and night, and shalt have none assurance of thy life:  In the morning thou shalt say, Would God it were even! and at even thou shalt say, Would God it were morning! for the fear of thine heart wherewith thou shalt fear, and for the sight of thine eyes which thou shalt see.  And the LORD shall bring thee into Egypt again with ships, by the way whereof I spake unto thee, Thou shalt see it no more again: and there ye shall be sold unto your enemies for bondmen and bondwomen, and no man shall buy [you].’  (Deuteronomy 28:15-68)

 

Many would argue that this only applies to the children of Israel, that we are Gentiles who are not under The Law.  Are you sure about that?  There are scholars who have traced the movements of people over time, who have studied the prophetic blessings in Scripture . . . who can demonstrate that the people of the ‘Western World’ are primarily the descendants of the ‘lost’ tribes of Israel, who were long ago taken into captivity for turning away from their God.  History repeats.

People today are running to and fro in search of knowledge, gathering to themselves teachers that say what their itching ears want to hear.  It wouldn’t surprise me if nearly all of us are doing that–after all, we ARE curious.  It seems that even those who, with all their hearts want to serve God, seem to think they are lacking some revelation that will make it all come together for them.  And, of course, most of us are interested in understanding the interpretations of end-times prophecies.  Nowadays there is no shortage of people who are speaking with authority, claiming to share their expertise in understanding the deeper things of God, and the revelations they have received.  When all of these factors converge . . . we have the conditions necessary for many to be led away from the faith.

There are many different ‘roads to ruin’, but here I’d like to address a common thread that runs through a few of them.  It is the belief that Scripture contains much deeper meaning, that only a few have discovered.

Now, not all those who promote these means of interpreting Scripture are going to come right out and say ‘I am one of the elect few who knows the deep hidden meaning of Scripture’ . . . but if you listen critically, it is there between the lines.  As they speak, what’s between the lines, yet subtly and continuously reinforced, is the idea that ‘I’m wiser than you.  I understand these things.  If you want to know the truth, you must follow me.  If you don’t see these things yourself, it’s because you don’t ‘have the eyes to see’ or ‘the ears to hear’.  However, I am here to enlighten you.  Follow me.’

There are various flavors to this today.  One is the Hebrew roots movement.  Others may be movements, or simply individuals who seem to have great insight.  They are seduced by their own great wisdom (sarcasm intended).  They have trained (perverted) their minds to see past the written word, past the literal interpretation, into the deeper allegorical/metaphorical/symbolic meaning.  Before long, they are seeing hidden meaning in everything, and their minds are so thoroughly twisted that they become unable to take things at face value.  The Scripture gives us a promise:

‘These [things] have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you.   (He is speaking about false teachers–intellectual seduction)

But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.’  1 John 2:26-27

God is no respecter of persons.  There is no ‘elite’ among the people of God.

‘But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant.’  (Matthew 23:11)

It is God’s will that EACH of us should read and understand His Word for ourself.  It was written in plain language that is not difficult to understand.  What hinders many people, is the fact that the Scriptures cannot be understood without the help of the Holy Spirit.  The Holy Spirit is a gift, from God to His people.  Each born again believer has the means to understand the Bible.  Unbelievers though, before they begin reading, must humble themselves before God and pray to Him that His Holy Spirit would help them understand it.

What follows is a passage that explains the roots of much mysticism and false teaching today:  The Kabbalah.

‘Literal Kabbalah Interpretations

 The Kabbalists, who believed themselves to be Orthodox Jews, believed that the Torah holds interpretations that are deciphered and accessible to the sages or prophets alone. The oral Torah of the sages is their esoteric interpretation of the written Torah. That interpretation relies on the Literal Kabbalah teachings, which involves the idea that every letter and space of the written Torah holds magical meanings and that there are layers of meaning within the written Torah.

“Most if not all Kabbalistic speculation and doctrine is concerned with the realm of the divine emanations or sefiroth, in which God’s creative power unfolds…two most important kinds of symbolism used by the Kabbalists to communicate their ideas. They speak of the attributes and of spheres of light ; but in the same context they speak also of divine names and the letters of which they are composed.” 22.

Kabbalists believe that unless one goes beyond the literal, or first layer of the written Torah, one has not really understood much of value.

“The word zohar means literally radiance. According to him [Hayim Vital], the radiance of the Torah’s divine light is reflected in the mysteries of this book. But when these mysteries are shrouded in the literal meaning, their light is darkened. The literal meaning is darkness, but the Kabbalistic meaning, the mystery, is the zohar that shines in every line of Scripture. This devaluation of the simple literal meaning is no invention of the later Kabbalists. It is clearly stressed in certain passages of the zohar itself.” 23.

Citing from passages of the Zohar, Nesta Webster states that once the Cabala initiates solved the magical significance of the Hebrew alphabet their students learned truths that they would never have known through the study of the written Word of God. One of these new revelations was that Noah was lamed for life.

“According to the Cabala, every letter in the scriptures contains a mystery only to be solved by the initiated.4. By means of this system of interpretation passages of the Old Testament are shown to bear meanings totally unapparent to the ordinary reader. Thus the Zohar explains that Noah was lamed for life by the bite of a lion whilst he was in the ark…5” 24.

Co-founder of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn and Kabbalist, S.L. McGregor Mathers explained in, Introduction to the Kabbalah, the significance of the Hebrew alphabet to the Kabbalist:

“…To Jewish mystics, every letter in the Hebrew alphabet was a channel to the life force of God and possessed of sacred meaning. Hebrew numbers were also represented by letters so that names and words had numerical values. Finding associations of words with the same value revealed a complex series of hidden meanings beneath the text of the Torah, the book of law attributed to Moses. In fact, the entire Torah can be considered to be a single long word spelling out one of the names of God. The significance of the name of God goes back to ancient Egypt where knowing the name of a god allowed one to gain power over that god.” 25.’

We know that the occult is forbidden by God.  It is the ‘mystery’ in the mystery religions, the false teachings that all find their place in the ‘Whore of Babylon’–the end-time world religion.

There are many words that give indication that someone may be speaking of the occult, but not wanting to come out and admit it:  hidden, shrouded, mystery, esoteric, metaphor, symbolic, profound, deep, uninitiated, Kabbalah, Cabala, revelation, decipher, unveil, gnosis, knowledge, light, radiance, understanding, wisdom, sage, mystic, enlightened, initiate, etc.

Learn these words and take notice of them when they are used.  Where many of them occur together, you are very likely dealing with a false teaching.  The deceiving spirits that accompany false teachings work through flattery.  Most people take the bait, wanting to believe they are special, chosen, wise . . .

This is from an ancient manuscript.  It was part of a collection of ancient writings, held among the descendents of the Israelite tribe of Ephraim.  It is not ‘Holy Scripture’, it is not part of the Bible.  It has been regarded as ancient truth that has been passed down through the ages.  If you choose to read further, consider it prayerfully, that God might confirm or deny to you its validity.

I am posting it here, with my comments, because it speaks as an eyewitness account of things that have passed, that are soon to return.  It seems that it may  link what is prophesied in the Bible with events that are happening now.

There is much interest today about a supposed comet named Elenin, a planet named Nibiru or Planet X, and a dwarf star/neutron star/carbon star that is a companion to our sun.  There is much confusion as to the relationship between them, or if they are one and the same.  I believe that time and astronomical observation will make that all clear.  What follows are my opinions.

The coming of whatever is approaching us (now on the other side of the sun)  is said to be in September of this year, 2011, through November of the same.  In that same time frame are also predicted to arrive 2 comets (3 if Elenin is indeed a comet), and 3 asteroids–one which is expected to scarcely miss impact with the moon.

Whether Elenin is a harbinger, and a precursor to the coming of  ‘The Destroyer’, or whether Elenin IS ‘The Destroyer’, I do not know.  But I do believe that ‘The Destroyer’ is what causes the events of ‘the sixth seal’ and (some or all of)  ‘the seven trumpets’ in the book of Revelation.

“I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red,  and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as late figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind.  The sky receded like a scroll, rolling up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place.

Then the kings of the earth, the princes, the generals, the rich, the mighty, and every slave and every free man hid in caves and among the rocks of the mountains . . . ”  (Revelation 6: 12-15)

” . . . it is I who have created the destroyer to work havoc . . . ”  (Isaiah 54:16)

Right now, it seems that Elenin may be a planet orbiting the dwarf star (and possibly our sun, as well), and that the dwarf star, or possibly another one of the seven planet that orbits it, when it arrives later, will cause the events known as the ‘seven bowls of God’s wrath’, later in the book of Revelation (chapter 16).

Because of the trajectory of its approach*, most people will not be aware of what is coming, until it is actually upon us and obscures the face of the sun.  Its position, and size, is expected to be such that it will totally eclipse the sun.

Before reading further, I would ask you to watch the video below.  This is the best understanding of men, so far.  The words of the speaker are not prophecy.  The fear in his voice reflects the ancient accounts of the effects that ‘The Destroyer’ has on men when it arrives.  The speaker has glimpsed it from a distance.  He had an opportunity, through a telescope, to go forward in time if you will.  What he has seen coming is what we will all see one day.

Jesus said that:

“There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea.  Men will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken.”  (Luke 21: 25-26)

I believe the video gives some crucial information in putting together the pieces of this puzzle.  After watching it, please continue reading.  I will post the ancient text below, with numbers in parentheses to refer to my notes, which will follow it.

THE DESTROYER – PART 3

FROM THE SCROLL OF ADEPHA

The Doomshape, called the Destroyer, in Egypt, was seen in all the lands whereabouts. In colour it was bright and fiery, in appearance changing and unstable. It twisted about itself like a coil, like water bubbling into a pool from an underground supply, and all men agree it was a most fearsome sight. It was not a great comet or a loosened star, being more like a fiery body of flame. (1)

Its movements on high were slow, below it swirled in the manner of smoke and it remained close to the sun whose face it hid. There was a bloody redness about it, which changed as it passed along its course. It caused death and destruction in its rising and setting. It swept the Earth with grey cinder rain (2) and caused many plagues, hunger and other evils. It bit the skin of men and beast until they became mottled with sores.

The Earth was troubled and shook, the hills and mountains moved and rocked. The dark smoke-filled Heavens bowed over Earth and a great howl came to the ears of men, borne to them upon the wings of the wind. It was the cry of the Dark Lord, the Master of Dread. Thick clouds of fiery smoke passed before him and there was an awful hail of hot stones and coals of fire. (3) The Doomshape thundered sharply in the Heavens and shot out bright lightings. The channels of water were turned back unto themselves when the land tilted, and great trees were tossed about and snapped like twigs. Then a voice like ten thousand trumpets was heard over the wilderness (4), and before its burning breath the flames parted. The whole of the land moved and mountains melted.  (5) The sky itself roared like ten thousand lions in agony, and bright arrows of blood sped back and forth across its face. Earth swelled up like bread upon the hearth. (6)

This was the aspect of the Doomshape called the Destroyer, when it appeared in days long gone by, in olden times. It is thus described in the old records, few of which remain. It is said that when it appears in the Heavens above, Earth splits open from the heat, like a nut roasted before the fire. Then flames shoot up through the surface and leap about like fiery fiends upon black blood.  (7) The moisture inside the land is all dried up, the pastures and cultivated places are consumed in flames and they and all trees become white ashes. (3)

The Doomshape is like a circling ball of flame which scatters small fiery offspring in its train (8). It covers about a fifth part of the sky and sends writhing snakelike fingers down to Earth (9). Before it the sky appears frightened, and it breaks up and scatters away.  (10) Midday is no brighter than night. (11) It spawns a host of terrible things.

These are things said of the Destroyer in the old records, read them with a solemn heart, knowing that the Doomshape has its appointed time and will return. It would be foolish to let them go unheeded. Now men say, “Such things are not destined for our days”. May the Great God above grant that this be so. But come, the day surely will, and in accordance with his nature man will be unprepared.

(numbered notes below)

These events, in the heavens–the position of the sun, stars, moon, planets, etc. in the sky–are also called ‘signs in the heavens’.  They are stories, being told by the stars, of what is happening on Earth.  If you have read Revelation 12 , you probably got the gist of it from the written account–the birth of Jesus, persecution, the protection of Israel, etc.  But, until recently, most of us didn’t know that it was actually ALSO a description of the position of heavenly bodies at the time these events are unfolding.  ‘The Destroyer’ aka ‘The Red Dragon’ is now nearly in place in the heavens, in accordance with John’s vision.

Both God’s Word, and the heavens declare — for those who have ‘eyes to see’!

* If you picture the solar system from above, the sun in the center, the planets revolve counterclockwise around it (except Mercury).  According to Jet Propulsion Laboratory, the trajectory of Elenin, is coming from both beneath the sun (and moving upwards) and behind the sun, moving counterclockwise around it also–coming out from behind it on the left side.  As it sweeps around the sun, it crosses the orbital paths of Mercury, passes directly between us and the sun, continues to remain on our  right side as it sweeps past us and upward.  Eventually we pass between it and the sun.  This whole chain of events is predicted to take place from early September to late November.

Our distance from Elenin is not the only factor to be considered.  The Earth responds to the gravitational pull of the sun, other planets and, during this time, Elenin.  When any number of these players are aligned in a straight line, I picture it as a ‘tug of war’ rope (or ropes) attached to the Earth.  Each player takes hold of the (imaginary) rope and pulls.  When the Sun, Mercury, and Elenin all line up on one side of the Earth (Sept. 26-28)–there is a stronger than usual pull in that direction.  When the Earth is between the Sun and Elenin (Nov. 11), we are being pulled from both sides.

As Elenin passes through our solar system, a number of different alignments occur. Their effects on the Earth will depend on who the ‘players’ are.  Approximately 20 major earthquakes, so far, have been correlated with the approach of Elenin.  They can only be expected to grow in intensity as it nears.  The position of Elenin, with respect to the Earth, on November 22 will mirror its position on March 11th–the day of the great quake in Japan.  However, Elenin will be four times closer to Earth on November 22 than it was then.

1.  As described in the video above–an [magnetic] iron planet surrounded by an enormous cloud of iron oxide dust, orbited by asteroids, and with a tremendous tail of meteors following behind it.

2.  Possibly ash from the volcanic eruptions it caused.

3. Rev. 8: 7–the first trumpet judgment:

“The first angel sounded his trumpet, and there came hail and fire mixed with blood, and it was hurled down upon the earth. A third of the earth was burned up, a third of the trees were burned up, and all the green grass was burned up.”

4. The trumpet judgments begin.

5.  Revelation 6: 14:

” . . . and every mountain and island was removed from its place.”

6. The Earth expands, and the surface cracks, from the gravitational pull.

7.  Iron rich, basaltic lava flows

8.  Meteors

9.  Tornadoes?

10.  Revelation 6: 14:

“The sky receded like a scroll, rolling up . . . “

11.  Revelation 6: 12:

” . . .The sun turned black like sackcloth . . . “

UPDATE:
I now strongly suspect that the entire ‘Nibiru’ theory is a hoax.  This 3 hour series covers many things, including the Nibiru theory.  If you are seeking truth, please consider watching:

The world is become more polarized towards the nation of Israel.  Anti-semitism is increasing, fueled by a concerted effort to put the Palestinian issue front and center.  National leaders continue to push for a Middle East peace treaty and talk about dividing Jerusalem.  In the churches, almost everyone hears:  ‘God will bless those who bless Israel, and curse those who curse Israel.”

How does God want us to bless Israel?  What do people mean when they angrily decry ‘Zionism’?  Is there any truth to conspiracy theories about wealthy and politically connected Jews, central bankers, and Bilderbergers, etc.?  Or is this merely slander directed at the people God loves?

The answers to these questions are important for all Christians to know, as Satan escalates his war on the people of God.  The eyes of the world are on the nation of Israel, because events there show us our place in God’s prophetic timetable.  We all need to learn as much as we can because, in these ‘latter days’, nothing is quite the way it seems.
