A Rejected Son Returns as a Rod to Bring Peace to Us!  Part 1

ISAIAH 11:1 – And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots:

He came as a direct descendant of David, the son of the man Jesse, as a human man child made of a woman by God in the Virgin Mary’s womb – a sinless man who was both the Son of man and the Son of God.  When Isaiah wrote in 700 BC most did not believe his report, as is the case today.  But he grew up before his heavenly Father as a perfect tender plant of flesh and blood, and in him all the fullness of the Godhead dwelt bodily.  He revealed himself to those who would believed he had been sent by his Father.  He had no attributes of great human beauty manifested in his flesh – his beauty was the inner beauty of his Spirit.  It was the beauty of God in him reconciling the world to himself.

Isaiah 53:1,2 – Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed? [2] For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.

ISAIAH 11:2 – And the spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord;

Isaiah 42:1 – Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles.

Isaiah 61:1,2 – The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the MEEK; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; [2] To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;

The prophecy of Isaiah 61:1,2 was fulfilled by Jesus in the synagogue at Nazareth more than 700 years after it was written.  He proclaimed himself as the one who was sent to tell them it was the acceptable year of the Lord to bring in the kingdom by Messiah, but that rejection of it would bring the day of vengeance of their God.

Luke 4:16-20 – And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read. [17] And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written, [18] The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the POOR; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, [19] To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. [20] And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him.

He did not base his judgments or rebukes on the human senses, but on the Word and Indwelling Spirit of his heavenly Father.

ISAIAH 11:3 – And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the Lord: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears:

John 12:44-50 – Jesus cried and said, He that believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on him that sent me. [45] And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me. [46] I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness. [47] And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. [48] He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day. [49] For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. [50] And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.

His judgments were merciful and full of promise to those who were poor in spirit and meek toward God.

Matthew 5:3 – Blessed are THE POOR in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Matthew 5:5 – Blessed are THE MEEK: for they shall inherit the earth.

But the time is coming when he will smite the earth and slay the wicked.

ISAIAH 11:4,5 – But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked. [5] And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins.

His coming judgment is pictured by his return on the white horse of Revelation 19:11 judging those who did not repent of their sins and receive his righteousness by his gracious offer of salvation.

Revelation 19:11 – And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.

II Thessalonians 1:7-10 – And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, [8] In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: [9] Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power; [10] When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.

Philippians 3:9 – And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:

Galatians 3:26 – For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.

Romans 3:26 – To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.

Romans 3:28 – Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.

Luke 21:25-28 – And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; [26] Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. [27] And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. [28] And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

A Rejected son Returns as a Rod to Bring Peace to Us!  Part 2

ISAIAH 11:1 – And there shall come forth a ROD out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots:

Revelation 12:5 – And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with A ROD of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.

Because they rejected him, SMITING him with a ROD upon the cheek, the ROD out of Jesse will soon come to SMITE all unbelievers who still reject him.  Micah writes of THE ROD’S birth, rejection, and Second Advent.

Micah 5:1 – Now gather thyself in troops, O daughter of troops: he hath laid siege against us: they shall SMITE the judge of Israel with a ROD upon the cheek.

“NOW GATHER THYSELF IN TROOPS, O DAUGHTER OF TROOPS:”

There are few cities on this planet that can compare with Israel in the number of times she has been conquered over and over again in history, many times being retaken by those troops once driven out.  Truly, Jerusalem has earned the title of “Daughter of troops.”  This Scripture speaks of a particular time in her long history, a day during the Feast of Passover, a day when three sets of troops were in the city.  The Roman Governor, who ruled from Caesarea (Pontius Pilate) had, in order to put down any rebellion that might arise at this feast, brought his Roman troops to Jerusalem, and quartered them in the Fortress Antonia, which was attached to the northwestern corner of the Temple Mount, and from which troops could overlook all the Temple courtyards from its highest level.  The King of Israel, Herod, had brought his troops with him for Passover, and they were quartered in Herod’s Fortress Palace on the western side of Jerusalem, where some of its base may be seen today.   The High Priest was also allowed to maintain a small contingency of Jewish troops to protect him from harm, and they could be sent to arrest religious offenders.  They were found around him at public assemblies.

“THEY SHALL SMITE THE JUDGE OF ISRAEL WITH A ROD UPON THE CHEEK.”

This prophecy of Micah was fulfilled during the last Passover Jesus attended.  It was fulfilled from the time the first troops arrested him to take him to the High Priest until he was placed on the cross.  During this time Jesus was exchanged back and forth between the High Priest, Herod, and Pontius Pilate.  On these occasions he was beaten on the head above his neck many times with rods (reeds), and struck over and over again by the hands of the troops.  You will find all this recorded in the latter chapters of the four Gospels. Jesus was sent by His Father to be the judge of Israel, but they rejected him as their judge, and judged him instead, finding him guilty of the false charge of blasphemy again God.  The middle portion of this verse gives God the Father’s reaction to their rejection of His only begotten Son.

“HE HATH LAID SIEGE AGAINST US:”

Micah was an Israelite.  So the “us” refers primarily to Israel.  God has laid “siege” (judgment) against Israel for almost 2000 years because they rejected the one He sent to judge them.   There has never been a race descended from one man (Jacob) that has ever passed through such persecution, unbelievable horror, and terrifying torture, as has been experienced by the nation of Israel, the most horrifying of all being experienced at the hands of the Nazi SS during WW2.  The current siege is the constant threat of terrorism by Hizbollah, the Islamic Jihad, Hamas, and Fatah splinter groups.

Micah 5:2 – But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.

This is one of the most beloved verses in Scripture concerning the birth of Israel’s Messiah, Jesus Christ.  It has been put on display Christmas after Christmas, and preached vividly during that season from millions of pulpits.  By the time it was fulfilled by Christ’s birth in Bethlehem, traditional teachings concerning the Messiah’s birth had replaced God’s account, and it is truly sad that Herod had to ask where he would be born, and perhaps even sadder that the scribes had to look it up.  Some traditional teachings, by the time that Christ arrived, taught that Messiah the Prince would be born of royalty, or perhaps by the wife of the High Priest, or at least of wealthy parents who had great influence.  Traditional teachings had completely departed from those verses found in the 53rd Chapter of Isaiah.  He was not expected to be a suffering servant, but rather a great conqueror that would fight and destroy Israel’s enemies in battle after battle until Israel reigned supreme.  Some traditional teaching suggested he might be born in the great city of Jerusalem.  But when he came only a handful knew who he was, a man child whose Father was God, born of a virgin from the dirty little  town of Nazareth, laying in a manger outside the inn in a cave in the small city of Bethlehem.  Many “traditional” teachings of today will also cause most of the world to receive the man of sin, the antichrist, as the true Christ.

He was sent by His Father “to be ruler in Israel,” but Israel rejected him as both judge (Micah 5:1) and ruler, and they were without excuse, for all the prophets from Moses to Malachi had foretold of His “goings forth,” which had been from of old, from everlasting.  His characteristics, His goings forth, His life, His purpose, and His death had been clearly revealed by God’s word before His Living Word arrived in sinless flesh.  The following Scriptures reveal this truth.  Had they studied His word and believed it they could have recognized Him.

Deuteronomy 18:18,19 – I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him. [19] And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him.

Isaiah 53:6 – [6] All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.

Malachi 3:1 – Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the Lord of hosts.

John the Baptist was the messenger God sent before Christ the Messiah. And Jesus Christ was the messenger of the covenant made to the seed of both Abraham and David.  He came quickly to the temple after His temptation in the wilderness to cleanse it to be a house of prayer, not a den of thieves.  And, at the final Passover, when He came again to cleanse it, He found the same den of spiritual and physical thieves saturating it with ungodliness.  That is why He cried from the Mount of Olives before His arrest:  “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not! [38] Behold, your house is left unto you desolate. [39] For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.”  (Matthew 23:37-39)

Judging from the rapid fulfillment of prophecy in Israel at the present time, I am convinced that Israel will finally be calling Him blessed in the near future.

Micah 5:3 – Therefore will he give them up, until the time that she which travaileth hath brought forth: then the remnant of his brethren shall return unto the children of Israel.

“Therefore” is a conclusion to Micah 5:1,2 that explains why the Messiah of  Israel gave “them up.”  Because they beat him and rejected him as their judge, they came under judgment because they would not let him judge them.  God’s judgment has been on them for some two thousand years.  Without their God to deliver them, they have become the most persecuted, prosecuted, and rejected people on this earth.  The Nazi burning, torturing, and butchering of some six million Jews was beyond belief.  And yet I love them tenaciously.  Why?  Because their Messiah, who forgave them on the cross, is alive in me, and in the near future he will return to be their Messiah, their God with them.  The word “until,” in the second phrase of this verse, makes the point that he has not forsaken them forever, but only “until” they have passed through the final judgment for having judged him, which consists of the last 1260 days of travail in the tribulation period.  Christ will come forth at his Second Advent as the Lion of Judah to rule over the remnant of Israel that survives the tribulation period, and will bring a remnant of his brethren with him.  In verse three he rejected them with “therefore,” then told them they would suffer travail “until” he came back to the earth and “then,” that is, at his Second Advent, all of the remnant of his “brethren” would return to live on the same planet with him.

Matthew 23:38,39 – Behold, your house is left unto you desolate. [39] For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.

Revelation 1:7 – Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.

Zechariah 13:8,9 – And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the Lord, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein. [9] And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The Lord is my God.

Zechariah 14:5 – And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the Lord my God shall come, and all the saints with thee.

Hebrews 2:11 – For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren,

Romans 11:5 – Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace.

Romans 2:29 – But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.

Israel still has a final siege of terror to endure for rejecting her judge.  After experiencing what appears to be an end of her suffering when what seems to be peace comes to her land, she will suddenly be viciously attacked from the north in a lightning Jihad involving 10 Arab nations.  This will be her final travail before her Messiah, Jesus Christ returns to reign over her.

I Thessalonians 5:3,4 – For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. [4] But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.

Zechariah 12:2 – 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.

But after Israel’s final travail, this will be the fate of those who laid siege against her.  This is a part of the smiting of the rod.

Zechariah 14:12 – And this shall be the plague wherewith the Lord will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.

Because they did receive him as the Messianic Rod of Jesse’s son David, he gave them up, but he will return with, and to, those who believe in him.  He will return after the travail of Israel during the tribulation period.

Micah 5:3 – Therefore will he give them up, until the time that she which travaileth hath brought forth: then the remnant of his brethren shall return unto the children of Israel.

He will feed his flock in God’s majesty.  They will abide on the earth a thousand years, and Christ will be great to the ends of the earth.  He will bring “the Peace” when he comes as Isaiah’s rod of Jesse and defeats the coming Assyrian antichrist.  This will fulfill Micah 5:4 as well as ISAIAH 11:1,4,6.

Micah 5:4 – And he shall stand and feed in the strength of the Lord, in the majesty of the name of the Lord his God; and they shall abide: for now shall he be great unto the ends of the earth. [5] And this man shall be the peace, when the Assyrian shall come into our land: and when he shall tread in our palaces, then shall we raise against him seven shepherds, and eight principal men.

ISAIAH 11:1,4,6 – And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: [4] But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.

[6] The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.

A Rejected Son Returns as a rod to Bring Peace to Us!  Part 3

Isaiah 11:1,4,9-14 runs the gauntlet from the time of his first arrival in a manger in Bethlehem to his smiting the earth with the rod of his mouth at his Second Advent to his bringing in the peace of his millennial reign.

ISAIAH 11:1,4,9-14 – And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: [4] But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked. [9] They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.   [10] And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his REST shall be glorious.

Matthew 11:29 – Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find REST unto your souls.

John 14:1-3 – Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. [2] In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. [3] And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

II Thessalonians 1:7-9 – And to you who are troubled REST with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, [8] In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: [9] Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;

Hebrews 4:9,10 – There remaineth therefore a REST to the people of God. [10] For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his.

At the start of the millennial reign of Christ, the final great gathering of the surviving Jews from the great tribulation period will be initiated.  All surviving Jews will return to Israel.  The word “ensign” in Isaiah 11:10 in context means: “to lift up a standard, a banner, for the purpose of gathering the people together.”  Christ the Messiah will be that banner which draws all Jews back to Israel, and for a thousand years the message of him will be carried to the Gentile nations seeking him.

ISAIAH 11:10,11 – And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious. [11] And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea.

Ezekiel and many of the other prophets speak of this return to Israel after the Second Advent, and describe the glory God’s blessings to restored Israel.

Ezekiel 39:25,26 – Therefore thus saith the Lord God; Now will I bring again the captivity of Jacob, and have mercy upon the whole house of Israel, and will be jealous for my holy name; [26] After that they have borne their shame, and all their trespasses whereby they have trespassed against me, when they dwelt safely in their land, and none made them afraid.

ISAIAH 11:12 – And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.

The meaning of “ensign” was previously discussed.  The meaning of “sign” in Isaiah 66:10 means “in the sense of appearing as a beacon.”  It will be “his appearing” that acts as a beacon to draw Israelites home to Israel.

Isaiah 66:19,20 – And I will set a sign among them, and I will send those that escape of them unto the nations, to Tarshish, Pul, and Lud, that draw the bow, to Tubal, and Javan, to the isles afar off, that have not heard my fame, neither have seen my glory; and they shall declare my glory among the Gentiles. [20] And they shall bring all your brethren for an offering unto the Lord out of all nations upon horses, and in chariots, and in litters, and upon mules, and upon swift beasts, to my holy mountain Jerusalem, saith the Lord, as the children of Israel bring an offering in a clean vessel into the house of the Lord.

The sign, his appearing in the heavens, at his Second Advent will be “the beacon” that draws them home.

Revelation 1:7 – Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.

Zechariah 12:9,10 – And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem. [10] 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.

The split of the one kingdom under Solomon’s son Rehoboam, into the northern kingdom of Israel (Ephraim) and the southern kingdom of Judah, will be healed.  They will be a great single kingdom under Christ without envy between the tribes, and all their enemies will have been cut off in the great tribulation period.

ISAIAH 11:13 – The envy also of Ephraim shall depart, and the adversaries of Judah shall be cut off: Ephraim shall not envy Judah, and Judah shall not vex Ephraim.

Ezekiel also writes of the reuniting of the two sticks of Ephraim and Judah when Messiah comes.

Ezekiel 37:19-22 – Say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel his fellows, and will put them with him, even with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they shall be one in mine hand.  [20] And the sticks whereon thou writest shall be in thine hand before their eyes. [21] And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land: [22] And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all:

This next verse has as many different interpretations as a wild dog has fleas and, quite frankly, over the years I have changed my mind from what I first believed about it.  What I now believe follows Isaiah 11:14.

ISAIAH 11:14 – But they shall fly upon the shoulders of the Philistines toward the west; they shall spoil them of the east together: they shall lay their hand upon Edom and Moab; and the children of Ammon shall obey them.

One cannot question that the time Isaiah has brought forth is the millennial reign of Messiah.  So, in order to correctly apply this event that begins his reign, we must consider the first thing that introduces it – the forceful taking of the millennial land grant promised to the Jews through Abraham’s seed Jacob.

Genesis 15:18 – In the same day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates:

As the Scripture states, Abraham’s land grant was to extend to the east and to the west from Jerusalem.  The biblical people that lay immediately to the northeast, east, and southeast of Jerusalem were the 700 B.C. descendants of Ammon, Moab, and Edom.  The biblical people living to the northwest, west, and southwest of Jerusalem were the 700 B.C. Philistines (Isaiah 14:31).

The Isaiah 11:14 reference that Israel would “fly upon the shoulders of the Philistines,” refers to swooping down on the present day occupants of this area like a hawk on a chicken – “they shall spoil them of the east together,” means that Israel will take the Philistine land and the spoils of it “together” (along with) the land and spoils of Ammon, Moab, and Edom, the people to the east of Jerusalem.  The Scripture does not refer to Israel uniting with the Philistines to the west and, joining with them, spoiling the nations to the east of Jerusalem.  Isaiah 11:14 refers to Israel, at Messiah’s Second Advent, expanding to the east and west to claim the land grant promised to them by Abraham through Jacob.

The Gaza Strip of today was the land of the Philistines in biblical times, and the nation of modern day Jordan encompasses the biblical land containing the nations of Ammon, Moab, and Edom.

Micah 5:5-7 gives an accounting of Israel claiming the Abrahamic Land Grant by force after Messiah returns.  For a full exposition of this Scripture, please consult our Prophecy Update Archive Numbers 66 and 67.

Micah 5:5-7 – And this man shall be the peace, when the Assyrian shall come into our land: and when he shall tread in our palaces, then shall we raise against him seven shepherds, and eight principal men. [6] And they shall waste the land of Assyria with the sword, and the land of Nimrod in the entrances thereof: thus shall he deliver us from the Assyrian, when he cometh into our land, and when he treadeth within our borders. [7] And the remnant of Jacob shall be in the midst of many people as a dew from the Lord, as the showers upon the grass, that tarrieth not for man, nor waiteth for the sons of men.

Luke 21:25-28 – And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; [26] Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. [27] And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. [28] And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

A Rejected Son Returns as a Rod to Bring Peace to Us!  Part 3A

The U.S. Dollar Outflow Is Making the Economy Very Brittle! Oil That Fires the U.S. Economy Is Burning It To A Crisp! It is Brittle and Will Break in an Instant in the Future! This is the Result of Breaking Away from God’s Word!

The Rejected Son Will Come as the Rod of Judgment and Only He Can Correct the Mess Man Has Made!

Isaiah 11:1,4 – And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: [4] But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.

The coming collapse of the world’s economic structure, and the tectonic chaos which follows it, is a result of the judgment of God on a society that has reached the same low level that existed before the northern Kingdom of Israel was carried into Assyrian captivity in Isaiah’s day, and before the Kingdom of Judah was carried into Babylonian captivity in Jeremiah’s day.

Jeremiah 5:31 –The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?

Isaiah 30:8-13 – Now go, write it before them in a table, and note it in a book, that it may be for the time to come for ever and ever: [9] That this is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the law of the Lord: [10] Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits: [11] Get you out of the way, turn aside out of the path, cause the Holy One of Israel to cease from before us. [12] Wherefore thus saith the Holy One of Israel, Because ye despise this word, and trust in oppression and perverseness, and stay thereon: [13] Therefore this iniquity shall be to you as a breach ready to fall, swelling out in a high wall, whose breaking cometh suddenly at an instant.

Just as chaos came on Israel, it will instantly come on Gentiles for the same reasons.  Isaiah wrote it for all to see “for the time to come forever and ever.”  Our economic collapse will be followed by an unleashing of natural phenomena like the world has never seen.

Matthew 24:21 – For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

Whatever low level of weakening our economy has not reached when verse 21 begins, will drop below ground zero when the verse is fulfilled.

I wrote my first book, Tectonic Chaos, while I was still doing post-graduate work at Arkansas Tech University.  At that time it was obvious that the Middle East nations of Islam were going to become a major player in the world economic theater.  During the days of the great colonial empires, they played no part in the great stage play of economy produced by the industrial revolution.  Their oil, and the profits from it, was controlled by whichever empire happened to occupy them.  The Arab oil was controlled by the colonial empires, not by the Islamic faith.  They had little or no say in accumulation of wealth to exercise any control over their colonial masters.  But that all began to change with the breakup of the colonial empires following World War I, and the creation of Arab states.  It tremendously accelerated after World War II when the European colonial hold over the Arab states ended.  Suddenly there were four world powers, the United States, the Soviet Union, Red China, and Great Britain.  I was a synoptic analyst in the Nation Security Agency at that time, and it did not take a rocket scientist to understand what was going to happen in the future – Oil, not the Dollar, would one day become the driving force that fueled the dreams of politicians, namely national interest, which causes them to be re-elected – if the nation does well economically, they get re-elected, if not, hello mediocrity.  Knowing this, some 30 years ago, on page 78 of the first edition of Tectonic Chaos, I included the following paragraph.

“The ten horns of Revelation 13:1 are ten Arab nations who will soon form the nucleus of the seventh kingdom, and the ten crowns are the kings that will rule them. For years we have pictured the typical Arab as a scrawny little fellow on a camel in the desert with a comic expression on his face.  This viewpoint is quickly changing.  Oil is slowly replacing the American dollar in international importance – soon ten Arab nations will have gained control of most of the world’s wealth.  We will not try to stop them because of the Soviet Union – and the Soviet Union will not try to stop them because of us and Red China.  The world’s power block will block itself as the ten Arab nations prosper in their midst.”

I wrote that almost 30 years ago in the midst of writing Tectonic Chaos.  Oil has slowly been replacing dollars in importance.  We have watched the cartel, [known as the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC)], grow steadily since it was formed by Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, and Venezuela in 1960.  I retired at the National Security in 1971.  Two years later the first outbreak of high oil prices produced the world economic crisis referred to historically as the Great Oil Block of 1973.  Again, in 2000, OPEC put the squeeze on oil production to raise prices.

I remember the first book I saw on a paperback stand in the seventies that headlined the economy was going to collapse the following year.  Since that time every year some new writer has a book predicting it will collapse in a year or two.  I have never doubted it would collapse one day, and I must admit I am surprised it has not by now.  But if you will look back through our archives it will be quite apparent I have avoided this subject of when the economy would collapse.  I think the time has come for me to quit avoiding the subject.  The effect the disasters have had on part of the backbone of our economy, namely, the insurance companies, have certainly put a crack in it.  And the same chain of disasters that have occurred along the coastline from Houston to the floods in the New England states is causing billions to flow out of Washington into massive relief efforts.  Part of the disaster has been the damage to, and the interruption of oil flow from, offshore oil rigs.  It has been the major justification used for rocketing petroleum prices in the United States.  But the major culprit is OPEC.  As I indicated almost 30 years ago, the Arab world would slowly gain control of much of the world’s wealth by controlling the world’s oil flow.  The followers of Islam have made it clear they are aware they cannot defeat the United States militarily, but have pointedly stated they intend to do it by causing our economy to collapse.

The goals of the fanatical elements of Islam are very simple, they intend to defeat the United States and the western world by: (1) Disrupting the flow of oil to affect the economy of western powers, (2) Conducting guerilla warfare terror attacks in Iraq and Afghanistan to drain our economic resources by having to maintain sufficient military personnel to combat them, (3) Maintaining a threat of worldwide terror attacks to cause the western powers to expend burdensome economic payouts to a gigantic complex of government paid security personnel, and (4) causing the United States to simply lose heart because of its body bag count and domestic economic problems.

All of this is just part of the reason I do not expect the U.S. economy to stand up much longer.  We are always the first to supply aid in natural disasters all across the earth.  The Tsunami Disaster last December in Asia, the Earthquake Disaster in Pakistan, and the constant flow of dollars into famine and pestilence ridden areas of the world, are bleeding us dry economically.  Please do not get the idea I am drastically opposed to humanitarian efforts we have, and are making.  I am a realist, who tries to tell it like it is, without regard to the emotional waning of the human heart.  Nor am I suggesting I have the answer as to what we need to do to solve our ever growing economic outpouring of dollars.  If I have been able to correctly interpret the Bible, all this financial drain will continue, and the United States will simply go broke economically.  Oh, make no mistake, we will still have our nuclear weapons, but they will become only a method of defense, because our world leadership, which is not based on the love the other nations have for us, but on how many dollars we shell out to them, is going down the international toilet tube.  Simply put, Jesus is the only one who can straighten out this mess the world is in, and it will not be fixed until he comes.

And, in addition to the dollar outflow mentioned up to this point, there is the fantastic outpouring of countless billions in the battle against the virus driven pestilences such as HIV, TB, Flu, and numerous other life affecting pestilences.  Our worldwide relief to those affected by these pestilences is staggering, not only in the battle against them, but for the dollars poured out to victims of them in medical expenditures.  And what country is always “Johnny on the spot” each time a foreign famine comes to drain more finances from our economic stability? It has always seemed inevitable our economy would one day collapse.  The only question in my mind has always been WHEN?  The complicated infrastructure created by the world’s computer driven power has made a multilayered economy, and it is certainly not easy for the “man in the street” to be certain when it will collapse, and I am one of them.  But I am going out on a limb and at least tell you what I think.

I believe from the end of 2006 through the year 2007 we will see a very dramatic plunge downward in a world economy based on paper and deceit.  I also believe the year 2007 is the earliest year that Israel is likely to be attacked from the north by 10 Arab nations, and I am very confident such an attack will occur by 2012.  I confess the timing of these events is what I think, not what I know.

II Thessalonians 1:7-10 – And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, [8] In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: [9] Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power; [10] When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.

Acts 20:21 – Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.

A Rejected Son Returns as a Rod to Bring Peace to Us!  Part 4

Isaiah 11:1,4,15,16 – And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: [4] But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked. [15] And the Lord shall utterly destroy the tongue of the Egyptian sea; and with his mighty wind shall he shake his hand over the river, and shall smite it in the seven streams, and make men go over dryshod. [16] And there shall be an highway for the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria; like as it was to Israel in the day that he came up out of the land of Egypt.

Christ will smite the earth with the rod of his mouth. And one of the particular places he will destroy in so doing is the tongue of the Egyptian Sea.  Another area of his smiting will be the great Euphrates River.

In Isaiah’s day the “tongue of the Egyptian Sea” is what we identify as the Gulf of Suez, a northern extension of the Red Sea that slithers like a serpent’s wet tongue between Egypt and the Sinai.  Since Isaiah’s time, man has dug out a northern extension of the “Egyptian Sea” to link the Mediterranean and Red Seas together.  The words “utterly destroy” come from the Hebrew word “charam,” which means “to be cut off” or “to shut up.”  We are advised by God, through Isaiah, that he intends to completely shut up sections of the Gulf of Suez and the Suez Canal.

In Archive Prophecy Update Number 179A, the division of the Mount of Olives into two remaining halves was described, with one half being carried to the north on the extreme southern edge of a newly created Gaza Plate, while the other half drifted southward on the on the northern tip of a newly created Sinai Plate (See Archive Birth Pang Figure 33).  In Figure 34 you may observe the consequences of the movement of the Sinai Plate as it floats southward on an underground sea of magma.  As you can see, when the southward drift occurs, the Sinai Plate will be jammed against the massive African Plate.  Dry land will crunch against dry land, and a northernmost part of the tongue of the Egyptian Sea will be completely “shut up.” (See Archive Birth Pang Figures 31 to 34).  It may not be completely closed until the final great earthquake in Revelation.

Revelation 16:18-21 – And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. [19] And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath. [20] And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.

It will be possible to walk across this area on dry land throughout the millennial reign of Christ.  The nation of Israel may replace the Suez Canal as the link between the Mediterranean and the Red Sea.  It is possible that Mediterranean maritime shipping commerce will pass upstream to a point on the opposite side of the Mount of Olives from Jerusalem, and then proceed downstream to reach the Red Sea through the Arabah Desert.  Of course, the reverse path would be taken by all maritime shipping passing via the Red Sea to the Mediterranean. This would cause Israel to receive fees from all nations passing through their port on the eastern side of the river (See Archive Birth Pang Figure 47).

“The river,” Of Isaiah 11:15, has been disputed as to its identity by biblical expositors for centuries.  At one time I was convinced that this particular river was the Nile of Egypt.  I thought the “seven streams” were most certainly the seven streams of the great Nile Delta, and I was very persistent in this interpretation.  I was well aware the expression “the river” was “hannahar, and that this was usually applied only to the Euphrates River.  However, because of the “seven streams,” I clung tenaciously to my belief it was the Nile.  But, in my desire to make it the Nile, I had carelessly failed to examine the Hebrew construction of the sentence action.  When it said that the river should be smitten “in the seven streams,” the Hebrew does not mean it already existed as seven streams, and that God would smite seven streams already in existence.  It states that God will smite a single river, and, when he performs that action, it will become seven streams because of the smiting. I now know that the single river, which will be divided into seven streams, is none other than the great Euphrates.  The inspired Hebrew text phrase, in order to understand its meaning, should be read “and shall smite it into seven streams.” This action will occur at the same time, and is a part of, the action whereby God dries up the Euphrates south of the Palmyra folds and faults.

Revelation 16:12 – And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.

We were advised in Isaiah 11:16, that this “drying up” of the Euphrates creates a situation such that it will be possible for the millennial return of tribulation Israelites from the area east of the present Euphrates, and that this return would no longer be hampered by having to boat across the Euphrates.  The latter portion of this verse also indicates that such a highway will also extend into Egypt.  The “Israel” of verse 16 represents the descendents of the man Jacob, hence the personal pronoun “he” is used, even though it refers to an entire nation that came from Jacob’s loins.  When the nation of Israel “came up out of the land of Egypt,” God parted the waters of the extreme northern extension of the Red Sea, the extension that was called “the tongue of the Egyptian Sea in Isaiah’s day, but which is identified as the Gulf of Suez today.  On the day Israel crossed this “yam cuwph” extension of the Red Sea, while fleeing from the Egyptian Pharaoh, it could be said God had created a highway of dry land from Egypt to Assyria.  But God closed that dry land pathway to destroy the Pharaoh’s mighty army with a flood of closing walls of water.  However, the dry land passage of Isaiah will be a permanent thing, because of the drying up of the Euphrates and the shutting up of the Suez Canal, thereby making it possible to move all the way from the huge African Continent to the European, Eurasian, or Asian continents, without having to pass over any ocean or sea.  A God made, sea free, highway will be created that will last a thousand years.  Throughout the millennial reign these continents will remain fused by God’s power.  And, throughout the reign of Christ, the nations of these massive continents will move up and down the dry land linkage to worship Christ in the city of Jerusalem, the new capital of the world.  The commerce of Africa will flow through Israel to Asia and Eurasia, and the commerce of Asia and Eurasia will flow between themselves and into Africa.  Israel will sit at the crossroads of the world’s sea and land commerce.  Jerusalem will be the center of the world.

Isaiah 19:23-25 – In that day shall there be a highway out of Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrian shall come into Egypt, and the Egyptian into Assyria, and the Egyptians shall serve with the Assyrians. [24] In that day shall Israel be the third with Egypt and with Assyria, even a blessing in the midst of the land: [25] Whom the Lord of hosts shall bless, saying, Blessed be Egypt my people, and Assyria the work of my hands, and Israel mine inheritance.

And all the nations of the world will come by land, air, and sea to keep the annual Feast of Tabernacles in Jerusalem.

Zechariah 14:9,16 – And the Lord shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one Lord, and his name one. [16] And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles.

Ezekiel 39:21-22, 27-29 – And I will set my glory among the heathen, and all the heathen shall see my judgment that I have executed, and my hand that I have laid upon them. [22] So the house of Israel shall know that I am the Lord their God from that day and forward. [27] When I have brought them again from the people, and gathered them out of their enemies’ lands, and am sanctified in them in the sight of many nations; [28] Then shall they know that I am the Lord their God, which caused them to be led into captivity among the heathen: but I have gathered them unto their own land, and have left none of them any more there. [29] Neither will I hide my face any more from them: for I have poured out my spirit upon the house of Israel, saith the Lord God.

Earlier this Update, I discussed how God would smite the Euphrates River and, as a result of that smiting, it would be separated into seven streams.  Now, I will deal as to where that smiting by God will probably take place (See Archive Birth Pang Figures 29 and 35).  God has created a long zone of structural weakness in the crust of the earth from the northern headwaters of the Jordan River northeastward to the mighty Euphrates River.  It extends from the Sea of Galilee area across Syria to near El Rashid on the Euphrates River, and consists of an elongated zone of major faults and folds in the in the earth’s crust, known as the Palmyra Belt.  Please note on Archive Birth Pang Figures 35 and 36 how it links the Jordan and Euphrates Rivers together.

The Euphrates is one of the greatest carriers of top water silt on the face of the earth.  It tears the topsoil from Turkish mountainsides and then carries it through the Fertile Crescent of Syria and Iraq into the Persian Gulf.  The land delta of the Persian Gulf is the fastest growing delta on the earth.  This growth is produced by massive influxes of silt carried into the Persian Gulf by the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers.

Isaiah indicates that God will smite the Euphrates, causing it to divide into seven streamlets in the area where he strikes it.  The striking will occur in the zone on the Euphrates in the vicinity of El Rashid, Syria, and cause its waters to be redirected southwestward into extreme northern Israel near Dan and the Springs of Banias.  When the Arabah Fault is ripped open from the Gulf of Aqabah to Lebanon, the resultant fantastic shaking of the earth, will cause the Palmyra Fault Zone to collapse, and the Euphrates River will be diverted southwest across the crumbled zone of rock and earth to link with the northern headwaters of the Jordan River.

Whenever any sediment carrying river moves into a zone with more sediment than it can carry, it invariably produces what geologists call “a braided river.”  A braided river is the division of a single river into several streams.  Isaiah counted seven after the Euphrates smiting.  The seven streamlets will weave their way through the newly formed cracks in the crust along the northern fringe of the Palmyra Belt, eventually to feed into the northern headwaters of the Jordan River.  It will be what geologists refer to as “headwater piracy.”  In this case the Jordan River will have acted as the pirate to steal the waters of the Euphrates into its own headwaters.  This tremendous increase will not only triple Israel’s current volume of water, but will also give it more topsoil for land crops than it can use during its Messiah’s millennial reign.  Israel will be transformed into the breadbasket of the world.

We are advised by John, in Revelation 16:12, as to the effects of this massive water division into the upper Jordan.  The current riverbed south of El Rashid will go dry.  It will then be possible for the kings of the east to pass unhampered across shallow streamlets on the way to Jerusalem to worship King Messiah.

A Rejected Son Returns as a Rod to Bring Peace to Us! Part 5

Part 5

It all began with a man child in a manger in Bethlehem who was rejected as King, crucified, rose from the dead, and ascended to heaven to wait for his Second Advent.

Revelation 12:5 – And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.

It will end when the Son returns with the remnant of his brethren following the travail of the tribulation period. The Son will rule and reign on this earth for a thousand years.

Micah 5:2,3 – But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting. [3] Therefore will he give them up, until the time that she which travaileth hath brought forth: then the remnant of his brethren shall return unto the children of Israel.

The Son will come leading a great spiritual army of his brethren and the angels at his Second Advent.

Jude 1:14,15 – And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, [15] To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.

II Thessalonians 1:7-10 – And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, [8] In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: [9] Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power; [10] When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.

Those who believed the testimony of his messengers will be with him in that day in glorified bodies. The degree of glory they will manifest will be proportional to the degree they submitted their wills to God after he saved them by his grace. We will reap what we sow after we are saved in the glorified body we receive.

II Corinthians 5:10-12 – For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things DONE IN HIS BODY, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.

Galatians 6:7 – Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

I Corinthians 15:35-42 – But some man will say, How are the dead raised up? and with what body do they come? [36] Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die: [37] And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that body that shall be, but bare grain, it may chance of wheat, or of some other grain: [38] BUT GOD GIVETH IT A BODY AS IT HATH PLEASED HIM, and to every seed his own body. [39] All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds. [40] There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another. [41] There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory. [42] SO ALSO IS the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption:

Daniel 12:3 – And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.

Heaven will open at the end of God’s wrath and the Son will come with all his saints.

Luke 21:25-27 – And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; [26] Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. [27] And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.

When he comes he will destroy the antichrist, the false prophet, and their armies. Then the Devil will be cast into the interior of the earth for a thousand years.

Revelation 19:11 to 20:2 – And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. [12] His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. [13] And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. [14] And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. [15] And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a ROD OF IRON: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. [16] And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS. [17] And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God; [18] That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great. [19] And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army. [20] And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. [21] And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh. [1] And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. [2] And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,

Revelation 20:6 – Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.

A Rejected Son Returns as a Rod to Bring Peace to Us!  Part 6

Revelation 19:15 – And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should SMITE THE NATIONS: and he shall rule them with a ROD OF IRON: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.

God gave the law to Israel through Moses in order that they might turn to the Rock which was following them at the time he gave it.

I Corinthians 10:4 – And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.

The law was straightforward in its bluntness, and was to cause individual Israelites to see the impossibility of measuring up to God’s standard of righteousness.  It was designed to make them throw up their hands to the heavens and cry out: God be merciful to me a sinner.  If the law had not been changed, watered down, such that a man might actually believe he could keep all of it, and thereby be considered righteous before God, then much of Israel might have been converted to belief that only the Messiah, acting alone, could save individuals and the nation from spiritual and physical destruction.  But by the time that Messiah appeared, Israel did not look for a Messiah to save souls, because they had the law to do that – they were looking for a great military leader sent by God to raise a great army, to drive the Romans out of their land, and to restore greatness to Israel as in the days of King David.  Israel had forgotten the law as God gave it, and had so watered down the severity of it, that men and women actually believed they could keep all of it and go to heaven.  They did not remember the law as it was originally given and, because this was true, the law could not fulfill its role as schoolmaster to lead them to Messiah the Christ as their only hope of going to heaven, being justified by faith in him alone and not in their ability to make themselves righteous by keeping the law.

James 2:10 – For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.

Galatians 3:24 – Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.

Israel did not remember the law of Moses.  Had they done so, it would have caused the nation to recognize the Messiah as their only hope of salvation, and they would have been led to receive him as the promised one when he came.  It was one of the last things the Prophet Malachi delivered to them as a warning – To remember the law of Moses as it was originally given.  Even Moses, in the law, spoke of the promised Seed.

Deuteronomy 18:18,19 – I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him. [19] And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him.

John 12:49,50 – For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. [50] And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.

John 5:39,40 – Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. [40] And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.

Galatians 3:18-23 – For if the inheritance be of the law, it is no more of promise: but God gave it to Abraham by promise. [19] Wherefore then serveth the law? It was added because of transgressions, till the seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator. [20] Now a mediator is not a mediator of one, but God is one. [21] Is the law then against the promises of God? God forbid: for if there had been a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should have been by the law. [22] But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe.  [23] But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed.

They did not remember the law of Moses as it was first given, because they watered it down to the point the nation’s leaders believed they could keep it perfectly.  So who would be led to receive the Christ when he did arrive?  Who needed him if they could be accepted by God through keeping the law of Moses?

Malachi 4:4-6 – Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments.  [5] Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord: [6] And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, LEST I COME AND SMITE THE EARTH WITH A CURSE.

Revelation 19:15A – And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, THAT WITH IT HE SHOULD SMITE THE NATIONS:

God sent John the Baptist as the first Elijah.  And he was received as such by those believing his testimony of the coming Messiah.  Then the Messiah came preaching the same message as John.  John was beheaded and Christ was rejected and crucified.  The heart of the fathers did not turn to the children, and the heart of the children did not turn to the fathers when they received the words of John and of Christ, nor or they doing so now.  So the smiting curse of the tribulation period is coming on this earth.  It is vividly described in the verses preceding Malachi 4:4-6.  Those who have feared his name, and turned to Messiah as their only hope, will be blessed by Messiah, and will be healed in the shadow of his wings, and he will fully provide for them as his children of the 1000 year reign.

Malachi 4:1-3 – For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the Lord of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.  [2] But unto YOU THAT FEAR MY NAME shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. [3] And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the Lord of hosts.

Religious Jews are still trying to keep the law of Moses to go to heaven, rather than letting it teach them they cannot possibly measure up to the standard of God’s righteousness, and thereby directing them to the coming Messiah as their only hope.  They did not believe the first Elijah sent to them, and most will not believe the second Elijah who will come to them as one of the two witnesses of Revelation 11.

Very few of the Jews walked continuously with Messiah during his First Advent, and most will not believe he is Messiah until it is too late.  The reward awaiting those who have, and who shall, is worth considering in Luke 22:28-30 and Revelation 20:4.

Luke 22:28-30 – Ye are they which have continued with me in my temptations. [29] And I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed unto me; [30] That ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

Revelation 20:4 – And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

Messiah gave Israel up at the close of his First Advent, but promised to return to them after the travail of the tribulation period, after which he will protect them with his shepherd’s rod as he leads and feeds them.

Matthew 23:37-39 – O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not! [38] Behold, your house is left unto you desolate. [39] For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.

Micah 5:3,4 – Therefore will he give them up, until the time that she which travaileth hath brought forth: then the remnant of his brethren shall return unto the children of Israel.  [4] And he shall stand and feed in the strength of the Lord, in the majesty of the name of the Lord his God; and they shall abide: for now shall he be great unto the ends of the earth.

Micah 7:14-20 – Feed thy people with thy rod, the flock of thine heritage, which dwell solitarily in the wood, in the midst of Carmel: let them feed in Bashan and Gilead, as in the days of old. [15] According to the days of thy coming out of the land of Egypt will I shew unto him marvellous things.  [16] The nations shall see and be confounded at all their might: they shall lay their hand upon their mouth, their ears shall be deaf. [17] They shall lick the dust like a serpent, they shall move out of their holes like worms of the earth: they shall be afraid of the Lord our God, and shall fear because of thee. [18] Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? he retaineth not his anger for ever, because he delighteth in mercy. [19] He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea. [20] Thou wilt perform the truth to Jacob, and the mercy to Abraham, which thou hast sworn unto our fathers from the days of old.

Romans 2:28,29 – For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: [29] But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.

Romans 4:1-8 – What shall we say then that Abraham our father, as pertaining to the flesh, hath found? [2] For if Abraham were justified by works, he hath whereof to glory; but not before God. [3] For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness. [4] Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt. [5] But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness. [6] Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works, [7] Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered. [8] Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin.

Micah 7:18-20 – Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? he retaineth not his anger for ever, because he delighteth in mercy. [19] He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea. [20] Thou wilt perform the truth to Jacob, and the mercy to Abraham, which thou hast sworn unto our fathers from the days of old.

There will be a second Elijah in the Negev wilderness with Israel after two-thirds have perished in the initial Islamic Jihad against Israel.  And most of the surviving one-third will turn their hearts to the gospel of the Seed delivered to their father Abraham, and to their fathers who followed him.

Zechariah 13:8,9 – And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the Lord, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein. [9] And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The Lord is my God.

Malachi 4:6 – And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.

Micah 7:20 – Thou wilt perform the truth to Jacob, and the mercy to Abraham, which thou hast sworn unto our fathers from the days of old.

I Corinthians 15:58 – Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.

The Extinction Cycle a.k.a. the Biblical Great Tribulation Period

*****

The following information is generally being placed on the bottom of some of the pages in which are being renamed and reworked. The goal is to help any visitor to better understand the overall theme of the End Times Biblical Teaching of the Great Tribulation Period, etc. It is not to overwhelm the page or the viewer, but to capture your attention, as some viewers only visit one page or many just a few and then move on, never to return again. Maybe with this material, you will understand how, then the why of the method. This bottom information material was created on June 4, 2022 and I may add a few more notes of time to time, which will appear on some pages, but not others. Most recent updates added to this page was on June 27, 2022.

*****

When the coming Extinction Cycle a.k.a the Biblical Great Tribulation Period actually begins with the Great Earthquakes; Massive Volcanic Eruptions; Tsunamis on a Global scale; a Comet hits the earth; the Magnetic Field weakens and allows Comic Lightening to strike the earth; and all the World Governmental, Corporate Business and Mainstream Religious Leaders, including all of the so called powers-that-be fail to provide Truthful answers; how are the almost 8 billion masses of humanity going to feel, when their lives are about to vanish away?

*****

It is going to be so amazing when these events begin to unfold and the people who present themselves as Leaders of People, (great and powerful), become nothing but mere frighten helpless creatures of earthen clay.

There is virtually an unlimited amount of comprehension in the Universe. It is going to be so amazing, when True Christian Believers enter into infinity!!! Likewise, it is going to be very unfortunate for others, who are not True Christian Believers, but simply put on a show of religion or else those individuals who have never been Saved by Grace through Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
*****
June 14, 2022: Hey Viewers, if any??? Here is a brief review with links about some Bible Prophecy dealing with Islam, Judaism and Roman Catholics.
*****
01.  There are several pages of studies on this website about how the Roman Catholics will unite with Islam and eventually with the Biblical Antichrist of the 10 Islamic nations in the Middle East; which will form an Islamic Caliphate. Sometime during this 3 ½ year time frame, the followers of Islam will turn against the Catholics within the region and basically pillage and burn their buildings, then kill them by the millions.
*****
02.  Islam in a round-about-way is trying and will more so in the future, to deceive the Jews in Israel; that they want peace, at least in some regards, among some groups of people. This will catch them off guard; then the Islamic masses surrounding the nation Israel will conduct a surprise military attack and kill 2/3rds of the Jewish population, capture Jerusalem and all the land from Dan to Beersheba; then hold it for 3 ½ years. There are about 6,894,000 Jews in Israel. The Bible informs us that of this Jewish population, 2/3rds will be killed during the invasion from the Islamic forces, which will amount to about 4,619,000 Jews; more or less, depending on when this invasion occurs.
*****
03.  The followers of Islam during this end time prophecy, will be giving an allegiance to the Biblical Antichrist or Beast of Revelation. This person is the Islamic leader of the core 10 Islamic Nations that unite to form this Caliphate in the Middle East. At the end of this 3 ½ years at the Battle of Armageddon; when it is assembled in the Valley of Megiddo, (Megiddo valley is also called Plain of Esdraelon or Plain of Jezreel (Vale of Jezreel) the Jordan River Valley will spread apart enough to create a Basalt Lava Field and destroy the majority of the army of the Antichrist. The masses of Islamic followers, along with the Islamic Antichrist and the Islamic Religious leader will all be cast into the Lake of Fire.
*****
04. This study reminds me of the Story of Babel, when people built a tower and were of one language, then God came down and put an end to their project. The Great Tribulation Period will be a process of putting an end to this one world type religious merger. Of course, most people will not accept this fact; but this new world religious merger will only be allowed to exist for a few years; as the Great Tribulation Period, with the Wrath of God from the Book of Revelation will put an end to this process; with the destruction of most of the population of the world and finally the complete and total burning of the Vatican City in Rome, Italy by the Volcanic Fire from the Volcanic Complex above the Subduction Zone, then the entire land will subside into Hades; and then being covered by the Mediterranean Sea. This will be the End of the Vatican City, as the leadership of this religious system will not be allowed to enter into the Millennial Reign of the Lord Jesus Christ.
*****
Here is where the Vatican City and it’s leadership will be going in the near future; including all the followers of Islam; the Devil; the Islamic Antichrist, who is the Islamic Leader of the Caliphate and the Islamic False Prophet; the masses of False Religions; the Atheists and every human being who is considered accountable to be able to make a decision about receiving the Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior; but will not put their Faith in the Blood Sacrifice of Christ alone. There future is under the crust of the earth, which is Hades or even further down, within the core of the earth and eventually they all will be cast into the Lake of Fire, which will probably be some form of energy, beyond the elements of the present earth or even the stars in the universe. At least you will not be concerned about Climate Change or Global Warming!!! Wow, I made a little joke!!!
*****
Revelation 14: [9] And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, [10] The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: [11] And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.
*****
Revelation 19: [20] And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
*****
*****
Revelation 20: [10] And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. [11] And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. [12] And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. [13] And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. [14] And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. [15] And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

An upper layer of the sun’s atmosphere called the photosphere has a temperature of about 10,000 degrees Fahrenheit. If one compares this temperature to the Earth’s core temperature, which is approximately 10,800 degrees Fahrenheit, one finds that the Earth’s core is hotter than this layer of the sun’s surface. However, the sun’s core temperature can be as high as 27 million degrees Fahrenheit. If one compares this to Earth’s core temperature of 10,800 degrees Fahrenheit, then the sun’s core temperature is much hotter than that of the Earth’s core. If one goes more in-depth into the universe, a helium flash in the core of Red Giant Stars; the temperature reaches 200 million Kelvin = 359,999,540 degrees Fahrenheit.
*****
Perhaps the hottest place is in the star core temperature that rises to over 100 billion degrees Fahrenheit as the iron atoms are crushed together, just before a star goes supernova, then turns into a black hole.
*****
Of course, these temperatures are estimated; but such places will not be a pleasant environment to exist in for eternity!!!

Genesis 11: [1] And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.[2] 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. [3] And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them throughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter. [4] 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. [5] And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. [6] 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. [7] Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech. [8] So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. [9] 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.

There is sufficient study material on this website to serve as a guide towards understanding the Truthful Teaching of the Biblical Antichrist and his Islamic Caliphate in the Middle East Region; the Great Tribulation Period; the Seven Trumpets and Vials of the Book of Revelation; the 45+/- Days of the Wrath of God; the Rapture of the True Christian Believers, a.k.a. the Catching Out; the Parousia of the Lord Jesus Christ; and finally, some general information about the beginning of the Millennial Reign.
*****
Here are some interesting Videos about the Economy. This is important, as the economy worsens, this will cause the rise of the Biblical Antichrist in the Middle East Region and eventually the Mark, Name and Number of the Beast, 666; which will basically be a means of identification, mostly used in the Islamic Caliphate Empire for the food rations program.

There are a few verses in the Book of Revelation that have the word: lightning in the text.

It is possible, this Cosmic Lightning could occur and cause Earthquakes, which in turn cause Volcanic Eruptions, which have Volcanic Lightning!!!

Here are the Verses in Revelation. It starts with the Seven Trumpets and Ends with the Seven Vials of the Wrath of God.

1. Revelation 8:5: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake.

2. Revelation 11:19: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.

3. Revelation 16:18 & 21: And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. [21] And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.

***

Here is a brief statement of what I a referring to, with regards to Cosmic Lightning:  “For an hour on March 13th, a big crack opened in Earth’s magnetic field – one of the biggest in years (For specialists: BsubZ less than -20 nT),” Dr. Tony Phillips of SpaceWeather.com noted.“Solar wind poured through the gap, adding its energy to that of the CME which struck earlier in the day. This increases the chances that high-latitude auroras may remain visible at least through the early hours of March 14th.” What Dr. Phillips described took place from 21:33 to 22:36 UTC.  From:   Watchers.News/2022/03/13/CME Hits Earth
