The current escalation surrounding the Political State of Israel has been on the radar for many interested in end-times prophecy. Interestingly enough, what most of us have been taught for years regarding Israel and the last days has been twisted, much like the rest of what the world teaches. Today, it’s time to discuss the truth regarding this land, it’s future and the current war.
We need to be aware of what’s actually happening in this region — we are living in a time of mass deception. Most of what we have grown up believing isn’t true. Do you really believe we are getting the full story via news outlets? We were warned by our Messiah:
“For there shall arise false Messiah’s, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.”
Tonight, I’d like to cover some details about the political state of Israel, and the Levant that you may not be aware of. This is pertinent information in these last days in order to not be led astray by the media.
WHAT IS THE 1948 POLITICAL STATE OF ISRAEL?
For as long as we can remember, we have been taught to “Support Israel”, “Pray for God’s people, the Jews”, “Pray for Israel” and many other taglines. Growing up in a Jewish family with most of my father’s side still living in that land today, I’m no stranger to these sentiments. Regardless, we need to investigate whether this ‘State of Israel’ is the end times promise of the regathering of YHWH’s people, or a deception.
I want to make it clear; I’m not against any ‘people’ as a whole. I believe that YHWH’s grace and mercy is available to any ethnicity, in any location in the world, regardless of their past — anyone who turns to him through belief in his son and walks out their faith as he walked (the gospel). With that being established, let’s briefly review scriptures regarding the true end times regathering:
Therefore, behold, the days come, says Yahuah, that it shall no more be said, Yahuah lives, that brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt; But, Yahuah lives, that brought up the children of Israel from the land of the north, and from all the lands whither he had driven them: and I will bring them again into their land that I gave unto their fathers.
This passage is also repeated in Jeremiah 23, driving home the point, that there would one day be another ‘Exodus’ that would be so big, so eventful, that no one would talk about the first departure from captivity with Moses and the Israelite’s, but would be utterly amazed at this end times regathering. If the 1948 State of Israel is this fulfillment, then the Jeremiah prophecy failed to deliver, as the Exodus from Egypt still stands as one of the greatest events of all time — the 1948 event doesn’t even come close. Considering I don’t believe Jeremiah’s prophecy is able to disappoint, this great event has not happened yet.
Behold, I will gather them out of all countries, whither I have driven them in mine anger, and in my fury, and in great wrath; and I will bring them again unto this place, and I will cause them to dwell safely:
Let’s be honest with each other for a moment. The Political State of Israel has not been dwelling in safety.
And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob my servant, wherein your fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, even they, and their children, and their children’s children for ever: and my servant David shall be their prince for ever. Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore. My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their Elohim, and they shall be my people. And the nations shall know that I Yahuah do sanctify Israel, when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore.
His sanctuary and tabernacle are not in the midst of them — This is YHWH’s promise, which is not yet fulfilled. The nations do not recognize that Yah sanctifies them. Why is this? Could it be that this ‘regathering’ is a planned deception for the last days? Think about it. During the mid to late 1800’s, we saw the emergence of political Zionism and modern day dispensational theology rise at the same time. Without Zionism, dispensationalism falls flat on it’s face. The reason being; it depends on the separation of Elohim’s love in two different ways. One way for the church and one for the blood decedents of Israel. The truth is, Yah is no respecter of persons.
“Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that Elohim is no respecter of persons: But in every nation he that fears him, and works righteousness, is accepted with him.”
“There is neither Jew nor Gentile, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Messiah Yahusha. And if ye be Messiah’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise”
Are those who deny his son, even his people at this time?
Then said Yahusha again unto them, I go my way, and ye shall seek me, and shall die in your sins: whither I go, ye cannot come. Then said the Jews, Will he kill himself? because he saith, Whither I go, ye cannot come. And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world. I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.
I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abides in me, and I in him, the same brings forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.
“He that believeth on the Son of Elohim hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not Elohim hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that Elohim gave of his Son. And this is the record, that Elohim hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of Elohim hath not life”
1 John 5:10-12
I will raise up to them a prophet of their brethren, like thee; and I will put my words in his mouth, and he shall speak to them as I shall command him. And whatever man shall not hearken to whatsoever words that prophet shall speak in my name, I will take vengeance on him
Brothers and sisters, while the Political State of Israel may have some true believers in it’s midst, the country as a whole is filled with those who have been severed from the olive tree that is Israel (Romans 11), due to their outright rejection of Yahuah’s son, our messiah.
This nation is an imposter (as a whole), set up by the Jesuits of Rome (The Beast of Revelation) to be a huge distraction, and ultimately a deception for those who are not awake and gladly receive the mainstream narrative, as they do other topics.
Who is a liar but he that denies that Yahusha is the Messiah? He is antichrist, that denies the Father and the Son. Whosoever denies the Son, the same hath not the Father: he that acknowledges the Son has the Father also.
1 John 2:22-23
The point? They are not his people (as a whole). Only those who have been washed by the blood of the lamb are his people. Modern day dispensational theology teaches that when Yahusha returns, he will rapture the church and then deal with Israel (the Jews) that they may all be saved. I’m here to share with you, that’s far from the truth. When he comes back, those who are not ready will be cast out into outer darkness, no exceptions, for he is not a respecter of persons.
And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven. But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Also consider the parable of the King and the wedding, also the 10 virgins.
WHY THE DECEPTION OF “ISRAEL”
This is where things get pretty interesting, but first, we need to establish this:
And the ten horns which thou saw upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. For Elohim hath put in their hearts to fulfill his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of Elohim shall be fulfilled
The first part, where the beast hates and destroys the ‘whore’ will be very clear soon enough, but the main point to understand at this point; YHWH is sovereign. Nothing gets past him and there’s nothing to fear but him alone. No need to waste any of your time, thoughts or emotions on any of these world leaders, politicians, or ‘elite families’ who carry out the evil in this world — they are playing their part, just as Pharaoh did before the great rescue from above. The reason I’m establishing this; I don’t typically like to give much credibility to the enemy’s plans, but for this study, reviewing some of it helps to bring the whole picture into focus as to the overall plan in the end times for the Political State of Israel. As you will see later, this will corroborate what Ezekiel prophesied many years ago. Here is a short clip from a video titled, Ezekiel 36: End Times Israel.
Ever since the establishment of the League of Nations; eventually becoming the United Nations, their goal has been to create the Political State of Israel (post WW2 holocaust emotions) and set it up to be the match that ignites ww3. It is my opinion and understanding at this time, that if these tensions continue to escalate, the utter annihilation of Israel will spark worldwide pandemonium, division and continued conflict.
The Third World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the “agentur” of the “Illuminati” between the political Zionists and the leaders of Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam (the Moslem Arabic World) and political Zionism (the State of Israel) mutually destroy each other. Meanwhile the other nations, once more divided on this issue will be constrained. physical, moral, spiritual and economical exhaustion…We shall unleash the Nihilists and the atheists, and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil. Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirits will from that moment be without compass or direction, anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view. This manifestation will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time.
Now that we have heard the enemy’s plans and intentions, let’s see how it coincides with the Word.
Also, thou son of man, prophesy unto the mountains of Israel, and say, Ye mountains of Israel, hear the word of YHWH: Thus says YHWH Elohim; Because the enemy hath said against you, Aha, even the ancient high places are ours in possession: Therefore prophesy and say, Thus says YHWH Elohim; Because they have made you desolate, and swallowed you up on every side, that ye might be a possession unto the residue of the nations, and ye are taken up in the lips of talkers, and are an infamy of the people:
It seems pretty clear that the land of Israel would be in the possession of the enemy. We just saw a few moments ago, exactly how the enemy has taken hold of it through deception. Also, let’s take a closer look at verse 3 in the Septuagint:
therefore prophesy, and say, Thus says YHWH Elohim; Because ye have been dishonored, and hated by those round about you, that ye might be a possession to the remainder of the nations, and ye became a by-word, and a reproach to the nations:
Here are some scriptures accurately depicting what the real end-times Israel/Jerusalem will look like:
THE word that Yesha`yahu the son of Amots saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem. And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of YHWH’s house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it. And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of YHWH, to the house of the Elohai of Ya`aqov; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Tsiyon shall go forth the Torah, and the Word of YHWH from Jerusalem. And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore. O house of Ya`aqov, come ye, and let us walk in the light of YHWH.
Therefore, ye mountains of Israel, hear the word of YHWH Elohim, Thus says YHWH Elohim to the mountains, and to the hills, to the rivers, and to the valleys, to the desolate wastes, and to the cities that are forsaken, which became a prey and derision to the residue of the heathen that are round about; Therefore thus says YHWH Elohim; Surely in the fire of my jealousy have I spoken against the residue of the nations, and against all Idumea, which have appointed my land into their possession with the joy of all their heart, with despiteful minds, to cast it out for a prey.
This is exactly the plan of the Dukes of Edom & Beast in the end times for this land:
And the ten horns which thou saw upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire
I know, we’ve all been taught that the whore, the mother of all harlots is Rome, or America. The problem is, Rome/Vatican is the Beast, not the harlot — It cannot be both. Rome is the 4th kingdom of Daniels vision that would rule until the return of messiah. If this concept is new to you, I would highly recommend spending 20 minutes on this video:
Also, America is surely a harlot of harlots, spreading her abominations all over the world — yet, she is still just a daughter of her mother. The original harlot.
Here is a short 3 min clip from our Mystery Babylon video:
The whole video can be viewed here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UFDmdQ3Q1fk&t=1004s
This is important, as the destruction of Mystery Babylon is a central theme in the book of Revelation. Think about it, Jerusalem/Israel is the mother of all who have gone astray from YHWH — she was married to him and put away because of her whoring and abominations. While she was destroyed in 70ad, this was not the final time. Yahusha discusses this in and end-times view:
But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by. Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven. But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name’s sake. And it shall turn to you for a testimony. Settle it therefore in your hearts, not to meditate before what ye shall answer: For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist. And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death. And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake. But there shall not an hair of your head perish. And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh. Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter there into. For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.
In 70ad, all things were not yet fulfilled. Furthermore, is this what the prophet Daniel was shown?
“And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate“
Jerusalem = an abomination to YHWH
Jerusalem = a place made desolate in 70ad
Jerusalem = will remain desolate until what is finally determined for her will be poured out
(Thus says Yahuah Elohim; This is Jerusalem: I have set it in the midst of the nations and countries that are round about her. And I will do in thee that which I have not done, and whereunto I will not do any more the like, because of all thine abominations. Moreover I will make thee waste, and a reproach among the nations that are round about thee, in the sight of all that pass by.
“All that pass by clap their hands at thee; they hiss and wag their head at the daughter of Jerusalem, saying, Is this the city that men call The perfection of beauty, The joy of the whole earth? All thine enemies have opened their mouth against thee: they hiss and gnash the teeth: they say, We have swallowed her up: certainly this is the day that we looked for; we have found, we have seen it. YHWH hath done that which he had devised; he hath fulfilled his word that he had commanded in the days of old: he hath thrown down, and hath not pitied: and he hath caused thine enemy to rejoice over thee, he hath set up the horn of thine adversaries.”
While Jerusalem was destroyed during the time of Nebuchadnezzar and in 70 AD, I believe she will be laid waste one more time. Ezekiel 22 points out, that there would be a time when Yahuah carries out the final blow to this rebellious people. He gathers them at the end, and destroys them. Truly, this did not happen in 70ad. The people inhabiting the land today are the descendants of the Pharisees who still uphold the commandments of men, rather than that of the pure doctrine of YHWH, through his son Yahusha:
Therefore thus says YHWH Elohaynu; Because ye are all become dross, behold, therefore I will gather you into the midst of Jerusalem. As they gather silver, and brass, and iron, and lead, and tin, into the midst of the furnace, to blow the fire upon it, to melt it; so will I gather you in mine anger and in my fury, and I will leave you there, and melt you. Yea, I will gather you, and blow upon you in the fire of my wrath, and ye shall be melted in the midst thereof. As silver is melted in the midst of the furnace, so shall ye be melted in the midst thereof; and ye shall know that I YHWH have poured out my fury upon you.
The song of Moshe (Exodus 15) is both a song of history and prophecy; it corroborates this narrative:
Then the dukes of Edom shall be amazed; the mighty men of Moab, trembling shall take hold upon them; all the inhabitants of Canaan shall melt away. Fear and dread shall fall upon them; by the greatness of thine arm they shall be as still as a stone; till thy people pass over, O Yahuah, till the people pass over, which thou hast purchased. Thou shalt bring them in, and plant them in the mountain of thine inheritance, in the place, O YHWH, which thou hast made for thee to dwell in, in the Sanctuary, O YHWH, which thy hands have established.
His hands make end-times Jerusalem, not man. Here is a passage from 2nd Baruch, regarding the true Jerusalem. This takes place right before Nebuchanezzar’s army destroys ancient Jerusalem:
AND YHWH said unto me: This city shall be delivered up for a time; and the people shall be chastened during a time; and the world will not be given over to oblivion. Do you think that this is that city of which I said: On the palms of my hands have I graven you? This building now built in your midst is not that which is revealed with me, that which was prepared beforehand here from the time when I took counsel to make Paradise, and showed it to Adam before he sinned, but when he transgressed the commandment it was removed from him, as also Paradise. And after these things I showed it to my servant Avraham by night among the portions of the victims. And again also I showed it to Mosheh on Mount Ciynai when I showed to him the likeness of the Tabernacle and all its vessels. And now, behold, it is preserved with me, as also Paradise. Go, therefore, and do as I command you.
2 Baruch 4:1-6
Here is what the true battle for Jerusalem looks like when Messiah returns:
And an innumerable multitude shall be gathered together, as you saw them, willing to come, and to overcome him by fighting. But he shall stand upon the top of Mount Tsiyon. And Tsiyon shall come, and shall be showed to all men, being prepared and built, like as you saw the hill graven without hands.
2 Esdras 13:34-36
When the real Jerusalem is revealed with the true regathering, this is what the nations will see and perceive:
And they shall say, This land that was desolate is become like the garden of Eden; and the waste and desolate and ruined cities are become fenced, and are inhabited. Then the nations that are left round about you shall know that I Yahuah build the ruined places, and plant that that was desolate: I Yahuah have spoken it, and I will do it.
So, what’s the point? The land of Israel will be in ruins before the true regathering happens.
“In that day will I make the governors of Judah like an hearth of fire among the wood, and like a torch of fire in a sheaf; and they shall devour all the people round about, on the right hand and on the left: and Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place, even in Jerusalem“
Israel a leader in LGBTQTIA+LMNO
What would YHWH have done in times past with this type of behavior? If this was his land, ruled in righteousness, would there really be a muslim mosque in the heart of Jerusalem?
“As I live, saith YHWH Elohim, Sodom thy sister hath not done, she nor her daughters, as thou hast done, thou and thy daughters. Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fullness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me: therefore I took them away as I saw good. Neither hath Samaria committed half of thy sins; but thou hast multiplied thine abominations more than they, and hast justified thy sisters in all thine abominations which thou hast done. Thou also, which hast judged thy sisters, bear thine own shame for thy sins that thou hast committed more abominable than they: they are more righteous than thou: yea, be thou confounded also, and bear thy shame, in that thou hast justified thy sisters.
While there are some true believers and the innocent in Israel, the multitude inhabiting this ancient land do not serve the living Elohim.
“I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan“
Nevertheless, let us walk like the righteous Abraham, who prayed for the lost.
WHO DESTROYS MYSTERY BABYLON?
Now we will be getting to the meat of today’s headlines and why it actually is important for prophecy’s sake. We will be reading from the book of 2nd Esdras, also known as 4th Ezra. This book was included in the 1611 KJV, the 1599 Geneva and many other ‘cannons’. It was regarded and embraced as scripture by most believers until the mid 1800’s, during the dispensationalism movement. What we will find, is the Arabic (now known as Islamic) nations will band together to annihilate Israel.
2 Esdras 15
YHWH 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. 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.”
“Behold,” says YHWH, “I bring evils 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. Therefore,” says YHWH, “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. I will surely avenge them,” says YHWH, “and will receive to myself all the innocent blood from among them.
(And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of Elohim, and for the testimony which they held: And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O YHWH, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?
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.”
(Remember what we started this study with; the real 2nd Exodus that has not happened yet)
Let Egypt mourn, and its foundations, for the plague of chastisement and punishment that YHWH 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 tempest. Alas for the world and for those who live in it! 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.
(This is surely coinciding with what Messiah said about wars, rumors of wars)
For a man will desire to go into a city, and shall not be able.
(The real lock downs?)
For because of their pride the cities shall be in confusion, the houses shall be destroyed, and people shall be afraid. 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.
(This sounds like what most of us know what’s coming)
“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 Lebanon; 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.” Thus says YHWH 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. “Woe to those who sin and do not observe my commandments,” says YHWH; “I will not spare them. Depart, you faithless children! Do not pollute my sanctuary.” For YHWH 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.
(If you have not begun to keep the commandments of YHWH, now is as good a time as ever. This is truly the most important part of this whole study.)
A Terrifying Vision of Warfare
Behold, a terrifying sight, appearing from the east! The nations of the dragons of Arabia shall come out with many chariots, and from the day that they set out, their hissing shall spread over the earth, so that all who hear them fear and tremble.
(The Nations of the Dragons of Arabia are the Arab/Islamic countries we know today – Also:
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 – Rev 16:12)
Also the Carmonians, raging in wrath, shall go forth like wild boars of the forest, and with great power they shall come, and engage them in battle, and shall devastate a portion of the land of the Assyrians with their teeth.
(Carmonia is modern day Iran)
And then the dragons, remembering their origin, shall become still stronger; and if they combine in great power and turn to pursue them,
(They will be united in a common cause)
Judgment on Babylon
Behold, clouds from the east, and from the north to the south; and their appearance is very threatening, full of wrath and storm. They shall dash against one another and shall pour out a heavy tempest upon the earth, and their own tempest; and there shall be blood from the sword as high as a horse’s belly and a man’s thigh and a camel’s hock. And there shall be fear and great trembling upon the earth; and those who see that wrath shall be horror-stricken, and they shall be seized with trembling. And, after that, heavy storm clouds shall be stirred up from the south, and from the north, and another part from the west. And the winds from the east shall prevail over the cloud that was raised in wrath, and shall dispel it; and the tempest that was to cause destruction by the east wind shall be driven violently toward the south and west. And great and mighty clouds, full of wrath and tempest, shall rise, to destroy all the earth and its inhabitants, and shall pour out upon every high and lofty place a terrible tempest, fire and hail and flying swords and floods of water, that all the fields and all the streams may be filled with the abundance of those waters. And they shall destroy cities and walls, mountains and hills, trees of the forests, and grass of the meadows, and their grain. And they shall go on steadily to Babylon, and shall destroy her. They shall come to her and surround her;
(And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed/surrounded with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh – Luke 21)
they shall pour out the tempest and all its wrath upon her; then the dust and smoke shall go up to heaven, and all who are about her shall wail over her.
And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city! And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate
Who exactly destroys Mystery Babylon is still yet to be seen, but what we can establish, is the Arabic & Muslim world uniting together in fury starts all this. This is why the current tension is interesting. Is is possible that Israel continues to kill Palestinians, the catalyst for uniting the Islamic world? Two things can happen at this point.
- The current war can fizzle out and things return to normal like it has for years.
- This turns out to be what has been planned for quite some time and matures into a full scale world war, fulfilling prophecy as we have been discussing.
As of today, the population in Israel is 9.5 million. If it were to be destroyed, you can imagine the worldwide outrage due to loss of life. This would surely be a foothold for the beast to unite the world under the banner of ‘peace’. The sentiments would sound something like; “We have seen the horror of the holocaust, but this was even worse”. “We must unite as one people to end these racial, political, religious and ethnic wars”. While the world will mourn, all heaven will rejoice
“Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for Elohim hath avenged you on her”
And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous, And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets. Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets. Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers. Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell? Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city: That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar. Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation. 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! Behold, your house is left unto you desolate
Timing of This Event (144,000)
And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads. And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps: And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth. These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goes. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto Elohim and to the Lamb. And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of Elohim. And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, Saying with a loud voice, Fear Elohim, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters. And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication. 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, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of Elohim, 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: 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. Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of Elohim, and the faith of Yahusha. And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the master from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them”
These escape the judgments of the world:
(Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and puts forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled
For, behold, Yahuah will come with fire, and with his chariots like a whirlwind, to render his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire. For by fire and by his sword will Yahuah plead with all flesh: and the slain of Yahuah shall be many. They that sanctify themselves, and purify themselves in the gardens behind one tree in the midst, eating swine’s flesh, and the abomination, and the mouse, shall be consumed together, says Yahuah. For I know their works and their thoughts: it shall come, that I will gather all nations and tongues; and they shall come, and see my glory. 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. And they shall bring all your brethren for an offering unto Yahuah out of all nations upon horses, and in chariots, and in litters, and upon mules, and upon swift beasts, to my holy mountain Jerusalem, says Yahuah, as the children of Israel bring an offering in a clean vessel into the house of Yahuah. And I will also take of them for priests and for Levites, says Yahuah.
It’s not just the 144,000 who escape:
After this (the Greek can also mean “with this”) I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands. And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they? And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Therefore are they before the throne of Elohim, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them.
Who are these people?
“I, Ezra, received a command from YHWH on Mount Horeb to go to Israel. When I came to them they rejected me and refused the YHWH’s commandment. Therefore I say to you, O nations that hear and understand, “Await your shepherd; he will give you everlasting rest, because he who will come at the end of the age is close at hand. Be ready for the rewards of the kingdom, because the eternal light will shine upon you for evermore. Flee from the shadow of this age, receive the joy of your glory; I publicly call on my Savior to witness. Receive what YHWH has entrusted to you and be joyful, giving thanks to him who has called you to heavenly kingdoms. Rise and stand, and see at the feast of YHWH the number of those who have been sealed. Those who have departed from the shadow of this age have received glorious garments from YHWH. Take again your full number, O Zion, and conclude the list of your people who are clothed in white, who have fulfilled the law of YHWH. The number of your children, whom you desired, is full; beseech YHWH’s power that your people, who have been called from the beginning, may be made holy.”
I, Ezra, saw on Mount Zion a great multitude, which I could not number, and they all were praising YHWH with songs. In their midst was a young man of great stature, taller than any of the others, and on the head of each of them he placed a crown, but he was more exalted than they. And I was held speechless. Then I asked an angel, “Who are these, my master?” He answered and said to me, “These are they who have put off mortal clothing and have put on the immortal, and they have confessed the name of Elohim; now they are being crowned, and receive palms.” Then I said to the angel, “Who is that young man who places crowns on them and puts palms in their hands?” He answered and said to me, “He is the Son of Elohim, whom they confessed in the world.” So I began to praise those who had stood valiantly for the name of YHWH. Then the angel said to me, “Go, tell my people how great and many are the wonders of YHWH Elohim which you have seen.”
2 Esdras 2:33-48
At the time of the sealing of the 144,000 and their escape with the great multitude — the nations will drink of the cup of astonishment from Yahuah, starting with Jerusalem, which will receive a double portion first:
Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double
Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem, and cry unto her, that her warfare is accomplished, that her iniquity is pardoned: for she hath received of YHWH‘s hand double for all her sins
First Jerusalem, then the world:
For thus says Yahuah Elohim of Israel unto me; Take the wine cup of this fury at my hand, and cause all the nations, to whom I send thee, to drink it. And they shall drink, and be moved, and be mad, because of the sword that I will send among them. Then took I the cup at the Yahuah‘s hand, and made all the nations to drink, unto whom Yahuah had sent me: To wit, Jerusalem, and the cities of Judah, and the kings thereof, and the princes thereof, to make them a desolation, an astonishment, an hissing, and a curse; as it is this day; Pharaoh king of Egypt, and his servants, and his princes, and all his people; And all the mingled people, and all the kings of the land of Uz, and all the kings of the land of the Philistines, and Ashkelon, and Azzah, and Ekron, and the remnant of Ashdod, Edom, and Moab, and the children of Ammon, And all the kings of Tyrus, and all the kings of Zidon, and the kings of the isles which are beyond the sea, Dedan, and Tema, and Buz, and all that are in the utmost corners, And all the kings of Arabia, and all the kings of the mingled people that dwell in the desert, And all the kings of Zimri, and all the kings of Elam, and all the kings of the Medes, And all the kings of the north, far and near, one with another, and all the kingdoms of the world, which are upon the face of the earth: and the king of Sheshach shall drink after them. Therefore thou shalt say unto them, Thus says Yahuah Tsebaoth, the Elohim of Israel; Drink ye, and be drunken, and spue, and fall, and rise no more, because of the sword which I will send among you. And it shall be, if they refuse to take the cup at thine hand to drink, then shalt thou say unto them, Thus says Yahuah Tsebaoth; Ye shall certainly drink. For, lo, I begin to bring evil on the city which is called by my name, and should ye be utterly unpunished? Ye shall not be unpunished: for I will call for a sword upon all the inhabitants of the earth, says Yahuah Tsebaoth
Judgement begins with the land of Israel my brothers and sisters. Here are other territories destroyed at the beginning of the Day of YHWH:
1:3-4 – Jerusalem
1:11 – Maktesh (southern Judah)
1:18 – Israel
2:4 – Gaza, Ashkelon, Ashdod, Ekron
2:5 – Cherethites (Philistines)
2:12 – Ethiopians
2:13 – Nineveh (Iraq) & Syria (like a wilderness)
25:15-25 – Jerusalem, Egypt, Uz, Philistines, Ashkelon, Azzah, Ekron, Ashdod, Edom, Moab, Ammon, Tyrus, Zidon, Dedan (Saudi Arabia), Tema, Buz (Northern Arabia), Arabia, Zimri (Susa – Persia), Elam (Persia), Medes (Iran), Sheshach(Babylon)
17 – Damascus
11: 1-2 – Lebanon & Bashan
Is it an interesting coincidence that the promised territory given to Abraham and his descendants forever happens to be the territories that will be destroyed? Also, that it is very close to the size of New Jerusalem? Will YHWH be cleansing the land before New Jerusalem sets in her own place, even Jerusalem (Zech 12:6)?
Is this the beginning of Yahuah’s wrath upon this land, or are these orchestrated events much like we see throughout this country and the world, in order to move about certain plans? I’m no prophet, just a lover and student of his Word — so it is yet to be seen. After all, the Beast will unite the world and they will have a common enemy they will want to destroy. The arrival of Yahusha and the real Jerusalem:
Behold, the days are coming when the Most High will deliver those who are on the earth. And bewilderment of mind shall come over those who dwell on the earth. And they shall plan to make war against one another, city against city, place against place, people against people, and kingdom against kingdom. And when these things come to pass and the signs occur which I showed you before, then my Son will be revealed, whom you saw as a man coming up from the sea. And when all the nations hear his voice, every man shall leave his own land and the warfare that they have against one another; and an innumerable multitude shall be gathered together, as you saw, desiring to come and conquer him. But he will stand on the top of Mount Zion. And Zion will come and be made manifest to all people, prepared and built, as you saw the mountain carved out without hands. And he, my Son, will reprove the assembled nations for their ungodliness (this was symbolized by the storm), and will reproach them to their face with their evil thoughts and the torments with which they are to be tortured (which were symbolized by the flames), and will destroy them without effort by the Torah (which was symbolized by the fire).
2 Esdras 13:29-38
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
“But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect? And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed Elohim, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of Elohim. Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only. Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way? For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.”
