Were lockdowns foretold thousands of years ago?  What about riots and plagues?  Does it say anything else regarding the future?  The answer to these questions may shock you. We are living in an interesting time where life changes daily, and there are some things you need to know before it all goes down.


Today, we will be reading from a book that was included in the 1611 King James Bible, and the 1599 Geneva Bible, two of the most popular Bible’s of all time. The name of this book is 2nd Esdras, also known as 4th Ezra. This was written by the same Ezra we see in the books of Nehemiah and Ezra (also known as 1st and 2nd Ezra. Our Messiah quoted it nearly verbatim:

I gathered you as a hen gathers her brood under her wings. But now, what shall I do to you? I will cast you out from my presence. I sent to you my servants the prophets, but you have taken and slain them and torn their bodies in pieces; their blood I will require of you, says Yahuah”
-2 Esdras 1:30 &32

“O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, killing the prophets and stoning those who are sent to you! How often would I have gathered your children together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you would not!
-Matthew 23:37


“Thus says El Shaddai: Your house is desolate; I will drive you out as the wind drives straw;”
-2 Esdras 1:33

Behold, your house is forsaken and desolate.”
-Matthew 23:38

I will be sharing 2nd Esdras chapter 15, verses 1 – 27 with you.  I will pause from time to time and expound on some thoughts or connecting scriptures. I pray this blesses you.


“Yahuah says, “Behold, speak in the ears of my people the words of the prophecy which I will put in your mouth, and cause them to be written on paper; for they are trustworthy and true.”
-2 Esdras 15:1-2

  • I believe with all my heart, this book is inspired by the Holy Spirit, but that will be for you to decide
  • This book was penned nearly 2,500 years ago. I believe it pinpoints our time, right now. May it move your soul into action.


“Do not fear the plots against you, and do not be troubled by the unbelief of those who oppose you. For every unbeliever shall die in his unbelief.”
-2 Esdras 15:3-4

  • One thing we as believers really need to grab hold of — STOP FEARING MAN!  Fear Yahuah alone and he will protect us!  No need to fear the NWO, or WHO, or UN or whatever.  The Elohim of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is with us, as in the ancient days.
  • And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell” – Matthew 10:28
  • Consider the ancient generations and see: who ever trusted in Yahuah and was put to shame? Or who ever persevered in the fear of Yahuah and was forsaken? Or who ever called upon him and was overlooked? For Yahuah is compassionate and merciful; he forgives sins and saves in time of affliction.”
    – Ecclesiasticus 2:10-11


“Behold,” says Yahuah, “I bring plagues upon the world, the sword and famine and death and destruction. For iniquity has spread throughout every land, and their harmful deeds have reached their limit.
-2 Esdras 15:5-6

  • This is the great tribulation
  • Notice it mentions ‘plagues’.  I’m not here to debate what exactly the cronny Viru$ is, but here is a fact; this ‘plague’ is the vehicle that’s being used to change the entire world as we know it.  Is the sword (war) famine and death on our horizon?  According to this book, yes it is.
  • For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places– Matthew 24:7


“Therefore,” says Yahuah, “I will be silent no longer concerning their ungodly deeds which they impiously commit, neither will I tolerate their wicked practices. Behold, innocent and righteous blood cries out to me, and the souls of the righteous cry out continually.”
– 2 Esdras 15:7-8

  • While this world has run rampant for thousands of years; filled with sin and violence, its destruction is nigh, just as it was in the days of Noah.
  • As were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of man. For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, and they did not know until the flood came and swept them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of man.”
    Matthew 24:37-39
  • What will you be doing when he comes back?  Will he find you living the life he’s called you to, or are you living for yourself?


  • Before reading this next portion, it’s worthy to note, that I do believe America represents end-times Egypt.  Think about it.  America is the ‘melting pot’ for believers, the scattered remnant of the ‘lost 10 tribes of Israel’, living in captivity (if you think we are living in freedom, I’d suggest doing a bit of research — start here). America is also the world military and financial power. It’s sins have reached a breaking point and it’s time for her to fall.

I will surely avenge them,” says Yahuah, “and will receive to myself all the innocent blood from among them. Behold, my people is led like a flock to the slaughter; I will not allow them to live any longer in the land of Egypt, but I will bring them out with a mighty hand and with an uplifted arm, and will smite Egypt with plagues, as before, and will destroy all its land. “Let Egypt mourn, and its foundations, for the plague of chastisement and punishment that Yahuah will bring upon it. Let the farmers that till the ground mourn, because their seed shall fail and their trees shall be ruined by blight and hail and by a terrible storm. Alas for the world and for those who live in it!”
-2 Esdras 15:9-13


  • Many understand that we are in captivity this very moment.  While our souls are free through faith in the Most High through his Son, we will not be fully free until our redeemer comes to regather us once and for all.
  • There will be once again an exodus, known as the 2nd or greater exodus.

  • Therefore, behold, the days are coming, declares Yahuah, when it shall no longer be said, ‘As Yahuah lives who brought up the people of Israel out of the land of Egypt,’ but ‘As Yahuah lives who brought up the people of Israel out of the north country and out of all the countries where he had driven them.’ For I will bring them back to their own land that I gave to their fathers.”
    – Jeremiah 16:14-15
  • Amerigypt will be destroyed.


For the sword and misery draw near them, and nation shall rise up to fight against nation, with swords in their hands. For there shall be unrest among men; growing strong against one another, they shall in their might have no respect for their king or the chief of their leaders.
– 2 Esdras 15:15-16

  • “Nation against Nation”, just as Messiah stated in Matthew 24:
    • For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places: all this is but the beginning of the birth-pangs.”
      – Matthew 24:7-8

  • Also, we see, “they shall in their might have no respect for their king or the chief of their leaders
    • Is there any other time in history where so many people despise the rulers of their nations?
      • In my opinion, this was has all been done on purpose to incite the soon to come massive riots. The enemy’s motto is Order out of chaos. They want the chaos.

And many more….



For a man will desire to go into a city, and shall not be able. For because of their pride the cities shall be in confusion, the houses shall be destroyed, and people shall be afraid.”
2 Esdras 15:17-18

  • This text seems to plainly state that people will not be able to enter cities.  This is lockdowns foretold over 2500 years ago in the bible!
    • The creator of heaven and earth had Ezra the priest pen this down for us thousands of years ago. Does this mean anything to you? Are you and your family ready for the days ahead?

  • Because of their pride (rebellion against Yah) they shall be in confusion (Babel – Babylon)
  • Houses will be destroyed. Be prepared.


A man shall have no pity upon his neighbors, but shall make an assault upon their houses with the sword, and plunder their goods, because of hunger for bread and because of great tribulation.
– 2 Esdras 15:19

  • There will be looting, rioting and purging, just as Hollywood and other media has been foretelling and forcing into the minds (video games etc…).  Some might actually be looking forward to it, due to the massive indoctrination and stimulation towards it.
  • Famine is coming.  Be prepared
    • Nevertheless, the need to spiritually prepare takes precedence over all!  It is time to get right with Elohim (God) now. How’s your relationship and walk with him?

  • Behold, the days are coming,” declares Yahuah Elohim, “when I will send a famine on the land— not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of Yahuah. They shall wander from sea to sea, and from north to east; they shall run to and fro, to seek the word of Yahuah, but they shall not find it. In that day the lovely virgins and the young men shall faint for thirst.”
    – Amos 8:11-13


“Behold,” says Elohim, “I call together all the kings of the earth to fear me, from the rising sun and from the south, from the east and from Leb′anon; to turn and repay what they have given them. Just as they have done to my elect until this day, so I will do, and will repay into their bosom.”
– 2 Esdras 15:20-21

  • Whether you know it or not, every single UN leader is part of a secret society and mystery religion that is forming a one world order.  Don’t believe me? Check out this documentary: Click Here
  • Do not worry or stress about them however, they will get what’s coming to them soon enough.
    • “And there shall stand up in that day all the kings and the mighty, And the exalted and those who hold the earth, And they shall see and recognize How he sits on the throne of his glory, And righteousness is judged before him, And no lying word is spoken before him. Then shall pain come upon them as on a woman in travail, [And she has pain in bringing forth] When her child enters the mouth of the womb, And she has pain in bringing forth. And one portion of them shall look on the other, And they shall be terrified, And they shall be downcast of countenance, And pain shall seize them, When they see that Son of Man Sitting on the throne of his glory.” – Enoch 62:3-5

“Thus says Yahuah Elohim: “My right hand will not spare the sinners, and my sword will not cease from those who shed innocent blood on earth.” And a fire will go forth from his wrath, and will consume the foundations of the earth, and the sinners, like straw that is kindled.”
– 2 Esdras 15:21-23

  • For behold, Yahuah will come in fire, and his chariots like the whirlwind, to render his anger in fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire. For by fire will Yahuah enter into judgment, and by his sword, with all flesh; and those slain by Yahuah shall be many. “Those who sanctify and purify themselves to go into the gardens, following one in the midst, eating pig’s flesh and the abomination and mice, shall come to an end together, declares Yahuah.”
    – Isaiah 66:15-17

    • Still eating pork? I pray this verse motivates you to keep the food laws our Heavenly Father gave us. For more information on this, click here.
  • Where will you be when these things go down?


And now, the most important part of this whole study.

I wanted to share with you the truth and power of the Living Elohim, who created all things.  He left us a book that proves he knows what will happen in the future. With that being said, I really pray you take this last section to heart.

Woe to those who sin and do not observe my commandments,” says Yahuah; “I will not spare them. Depart, you faithless children! Do not pollute my sanctuary.” For Yahuah knows all who transgress against him; therefore he will hand them over to death and slaughter. For now calamities have come upon the whole earth, and you shall remain in them; for Elohim will not deliver you, because you have sinned against him.”
– 2 Esdras 15:24-27


  • Everything that was written so far was truly leading to this.  This is what’s important.  Do you walk according to the ways of this world or the ways of the Living Elohim who is calling out to you in these last days?  Will you listen, or ignore like the majority?  He’s told us from the beginning what we need to be doing — keeping his ways.

Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear Elohim, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For Elohim shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.”
– Ecclesiastes 12:13-14

  • A day is coming when the Son of Elohim, our Messiah will return.  When he does, his kingdom will arrive with him.  Some will be allowed to escape this time of wrath and enter into the kingdom, and some will not.  Where will you be on that day?
  • “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.”
    – Matthew 7:21-23
  • Make no mistake about it.  Many who call him their Messiah will not enter and will be left in tribulation. Why?  because they didn’t know him — they didn’t keep the commandments of Elohim.
  • And here is how we know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. He that says, I know him, and keeps not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But whoever keeps his word, in him truly is the love of Elohim perfected: hereby know we that we are in him. He that says he lives in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked. Brethren, I write no new commandment unto you, but an old commandment which ye had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which ye have heard from the beginning.”
    – 1 John 2:3-7

If you’re new, or just waking up, don’t panic. Pray to our Father, ask him to guide you. Have you been baptized? Perhaps it’s time.  Have you repented of your wrong doings? If not, today is the day.

When you are in tribulation, and all these things come upon you in the latter days, you will return to the Yahuah your Elohim and obey his voice, for Yahuah your Elohim is a merciful Elohim; he will not fail you or destroy you or forget the covenant with your fathers which he swore to them.”
– Deuteronomy 4:30-31

It’s time to stand up and take this faith seriously brothers and sisters. Time is short, so there’s no better place than here, no better time than now. Walking obediently to our creator is not hard, regardless of what anyone has told you. In fact, it’s actually easier than living in sin and according to man-made religion.

The law (Torah) of Yahuah is perfect, reviving the soul; the testimony of Yahuah is sure, making wise the simple; the precepts of Yahuah are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of Yahuah is pure, enlightening the eyes; the fear of Yahuah is clean, enduring for ever; the ordinances of Yahuah are true, and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, even much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and drippings of the honeycomb. Moreover by them is thy servant warned; in keeping them there is great reward.”
– Psalm 19:7-11

Even more details of the time of tribulation — 2nd Esdras 16

May Yahuah bless you and keep you,
Yahuah make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you,
Yahuah lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace.
