GOD’S ZION HOME ISRAEL

The Almighty God Owner of heavens and earth Chose Zion Holy Land Israel to Dwell In. All wealthy people have several homes in many places so God Deserves His Perfect Location on earth to live in. God’s promise for God’s people in Jeremiah 33:15; 50:4, 20 is being fulfilled. It is important to feel highly favoured and blessed God Wants to return to Dwell on earth. So it is essential to Welcome God’s restoration of mankind through Jesus Christ. Restoration includes judgement of Israel’s enemy nations for injustices against God’s people and His Holy Land. It is important for media to carefully studies Biblical history to balance news accurately. To stop misinformation misrepresenting Israel as villain blackmails, fuels, incites anti-Semitism. God sent Israel into captivity many times in history so the land redistributed by others. The particular historical events referred to include 722, 701, 598, 586 b.c. among others in Amos 1:9, 10. This critical moment in history and prophecy shows events foretold in Bible Scripture set in motion. So determines the fate of all nations not just Israel but affects all countries as well. Yet God Continues to Defend, Protect and Bless God’s Chosen people.In Joel 31 in those days at that time God Will restore Israel’s destined fortunes in Judah and Jerusalem. God will gather all nations and bring them to valley of Jehoshaphat. God will put them on trial for what they did to My Heritage Inheritance, My people Israel, because they scattered my people to remove them far from their border among nations and divided up my land. They scattered Israel among nations and parted My Land They cast lots for my people and traded boys for prostitutes; they sold girls for wine to drink. The captors cast lots for prisoners in Obadia 11; Nahum 3:10, for defenseless children traded and sold for purposes of debauchery in Amos 2:6. God’s legal charge against Tyre and Sidon coastal Phoenicia and the regions of Philistia coastal Palestine in Joshua 13:2, 3 concerns involvement in capturing and trading Israelites as prisoners of war. God finally takes back power from His enemies to enrich Israel. God will restore all the years the canker worm, palmer worms  and locusts devoured as God Delivers His people. Both regions sold Israelites as slaves to the Greeks and to Edom in Amos 1:6,9“Now what have you against me, Tyre and Sidon and all you coasts of Palestine in regions of Philistia? Are you repaying me for something I have done? If you are paying me back, I will swiftly and speedily return on your own heads what you have done. The land’s silver and gold, as well as its inhabitants, belonged to the Lord in Haggai 2:8. 5 Yet you took my silver and my gold and carried off my finest treasures to your temples. You sold the people of Judah and Jerusalem to the Greeks, that you might send them far from their homeland. God will lead His restored people to inflict His punishment on all who fight Him.  See, I am going to rouse them out of the places to which you sold them and I will return on your own heads what you have done.I will sell your sons and daughters to people of Judah and they will sell them to Sabean nation far away.”The Sabaeans or Sabeans in Arabic: السبئيون‎ as-Saba’iyūn  in Hebrew: סבא‎) were an ancient people speaking an Old South Arabian language who lived in what is today Yemen, in the south west of the Arabian Peninsula. The Lord has spoken. Proclaim this among the nations, Prepare for war. Rouse the warriors!  Let all fighting men draw near and attack. The Sabeans are mentioned in the Bible as a distant people in Joel 3:8, famous traders in Ezekiel 27:22-3; 38:13; Job 6:19, who exported gold in Isaiah 60:6; Psalm 73:15; Ezekiel 38:13, precious stones in Ezekiel 27:22, perfumes in Jeremiah 6:20incense in Isaiah 60:6 and in Joel 3:8 practised brigandage.This Saba, Sheba must not be confused with Saba ASeba) in Ethiopia of Isaiah 43:3 and 45:14. It lies in the Southern Arabian Jôf about 200 miles northwest of Aden. The Sabeans are mentioned in the Bibleas a distant people (Joel 3:8), famous traders (Ezekiel 27:22-3; 38:13; Job 6:19), The genealogies ofGenesis connect them now with Dadan, as sons of Regma (10:7; cf. 1 Chronicles 1:9) and of Jecsan(25:3; cf. 1 Chronicles 1:32), now with Asarmoth (Hadhramôt), as sons of Jecsan (10:26-28, cf., 1 Chronicles 1:20-22). the Sabeans moved south in the eighth or ninth century and established their kingdom on the ruins of the Minaean power. This theory is plausible and solves the difficulty of 1 Kings 10;3:9-17.Here is a challenge to all the enemies of God’s people. There is no escaping God’s judgments; hardened sinners, in that day of wrath, shall be cut off from all comfort and joy. Most of the prophets foretell the same final victory of the church of God over all that oppose it. To the wicked it will be a terrible day, but to the righteous it will be a joyful day. What cause have those who possess an interest in Christ, to glory in their Strength and their Redeemer! The acceptable year of the Lord, a day of such great favour to some will be a day of remarkable vengeance to others. Let every one in Christ awake and pray to flee from wrath to come.
This and the following verses, instead of expressly narrating the execution of the Divine command, present a picture of it. In one part the prophet sees in vision and shows us pictorially the multitudes of the nations pouring on in one continuous stream into the fatal valley. In another compartment of the picture, Jehovah is seen in the awfulness of his majesty and in the fearfulness of his judgements on the wicked, while he is a Refuge and Strength for his people. God issues invitation to battle to nations to be defeated by God.10 Beat your plowshares into swords and your pruning hooks into spears. Let the weak say, I am strong 11 Come quickly all nations from all sides to assemble with your warriors against God.joel_1_15_jesus_god_holy_bible_verse_savior_hogh_contrast_hd-wallpaper-1599644

12 “Let the nations be roused; let them advance into the Valley of Jehoshaphat, for there God will sit to judge all the nations on every side.13 Swing the sickle, for the harvest is ripe. Come, trample the grapes, for the wine press is full and the vats overflow so great is their wickedness!” Like grain ready to be cut down with the sickle in Isaiah 17:5 and like grapes waiting to be pressed in Isaiah 63:3), the wicked nations are ripe for God’s Harvest of judgement in Revelation 14:15, 18, 20. The full winepress overflowing emphasizes enormous wickedness of the nations gathered in valley for judgement. The battle for Israel’s future is spiritual war  fought and won by believers. All friends of Israel, no matter circumstances as Christians have a role to play. Through Holy Spirit and prayer weapons resist principalities, powers and spiritual wickedness in high places arrayed against Israel.14 Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision.15 The sun and moon will be darkened and stars no longer shine. 16 The Lord will roar from Zion and thunder from Jerusalem. The earth and heavens will tremble but God is Refuge for His people, a stronghold for the people of Israel. Despite God’s deep anger and wrath, God’s Protection, real presence is in Zion the Lord’s holy hill in Psalm 46:4; Isaiah. 8:18; 52:1, 2; Zechariah 2:10; 8:3; Revelation. 21:3. You will know I the Lord your God dwell in Zion. My holy hill Jerusalem will be holy. Never again will Gentile strange foreigners invade her. God’s Covenant Blessings remains strong with His paradisal prosperity for Israel. 18 “In that day the mountains will drip new wine and the hills will flow with milk; all the ravines of Judah will run with water. A fountain will flow out of the Lord’s house and water the valley of acacias. 19 Egypt due to actions in 1 Kings 14:25, 26; 2 Kings 23:29 will be desolate, Edom a desert wilderness waste because of the violence done to the people of Judah, in whose land they shed innocent blood in Obadiah 9–14. Egypt and Edom. All Israel’s enemies will be in ruins after God’s judgement. 20 Judah will be inhabited forever and Jerusalem will continue to be dwelt in through all generations from generation to generation. 21 Shall I leave Israel’s innocent blood unavenged? No, I will not. God Dwells in Zion! In contrast to God’s enemies, Judah and Jerusalem are blessed promised perpetual habitation of the land Jeremiah 17:25; Zechariah 12:6 because “the Lord dwells in Zion Israel. God is greater and more powerful than any man or nations.  What He decrees will come to pass. And as we lift our voices together to cry out to Him, He will hear and answer. So stand with believers to fight this vital spiritual battle for Jerusalem today. God Will Counter the evil forces waging war on Israel to deliver this great nation and the Jewish people and all grafted in Christian believers.

GREEDY RICH OPPRESSORS

In the Bible in the book of James 5:1-6, God warns and challenges rich oppressors by saying, now listen, you rich people, weep and wail because of the misery that is coming on you. Your wealth has rotted, and moths have eaten your clothes.Your gold and silver are corroded. Their corrosion will testify against you and eat your flesh like fire. You have hoarded wealth in the last days. Look! The wages you failed to pay the workers who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord Almighty. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves in the day of slaughter. You condemn and murder the innocent one who was not opposing you. Although the Bible nowhere condemns wealth which is the blessing of God in Proverbs 10:22, the root of all evil is the love of money which deprives others to enrich a few greedy selfish people. The love of money is the root of all evil. The rich social class often guilty of exploiting and oppressing the poor ignore the challenges of workers. They deliberately remove dignity of people using money and wealth as a weapon of control. God reserves severe judgement for this in Luke 6:24. god is deeply concerned that the abundant resources He generously Provided are misused to make God look like He discriminates in giving resources to all His creation. Earthly treasures are subject to decay, eventually perish so God warns not to put confidence in it above sharing with others. James echoes teaching of Jesus in Matthew 6:20Zero hours cunning plan strategy puts a lot of workers on hold without active work or pay which inconveniences them from seeking other jobs. They continue to be on phantom ghost payroll for emergency requirement of employers. Yet have daily needs of food, paying rents, bills and taxes yet without income. This is violation of the law of God. Wages are to be paid fairly on time in Leviticus 19:13; Deuteronomy 24:14, 15. Rich oppressors fatten themselves and indulge unaware of the disaster of God’s judgement awaiting them. The unjust use money as instrument of power to control so often causes death of innocent people. The verse understood figuratively means to rob people of their wages and livelihood is to commit a kind of murder against them. James the apostle denounces the injustice of the rich. So warns and reminds them of the judgements of God upon those rich men who oppress the poor. Then showing them how great their sin and folly are in the sight of God the grievous punishments  which should fall upon them in James 5:1-6. The saddest part of the problem of rich oppressors is that they will not take wealth into eternity but suffer eternal punishment unless they repent. In Malachi 2:17 God warns He is wearied words of those who say, “How have we wearied Him?” you ask. By saying, “All who do evil are good in the eyes of the Lord and He is pleased with them or Where is the God of justice to intervene on behalf of  poor?” In Malachi 3:13 “You have spoken arrogantly against Me,” says the Lord God“Yet you ask, ‘What have we said against you?’ 14 “You have said, ‘It is futile to serve God. What do we gain by carrying out His requirements and going about like mourners before the Lord Almighty? 15 But call the arrogant blessed, as certainly such evildoers prosper, when they put God to the test and seem to get away with it.’”The faithful remnant who 16  fear God talk with each other, and the Lord Listens and Hears. A scroll of remembrance was written in His presence concerning those who fear the Lord and Honour His Holy Name.17 “On the day God Almighty Acts, “they will be My treasured possession. I will spare them, just as a father has compassion and spares his son who serves him. 18 And you will again see the distinction between the righteous and the wicked, between those who serve God and those who do not. In Malachi 31-5 The True God you are seeking will come to His Temple. The messenger of the covenant, you desire, will come,” says God Almighty. But who can endure the day of His coming? Who can stand when He appears? For He will be like a refiner’s fire or a launderer’s soap. He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver to purify and refine like gold and silver. As Jesus is Coming soon and very soon, “God is quick to testify against sorcerers, adulterers, perjurers. Against those who defraud labourers of their wages, who oppress widows and the fatherless and deprive the foreigners among you of justice, but do not fear me,” says the Lord God Almighty. All faithful Christian believers are exhorted to set a good example in business investment as rich employers of people. To be wise and use Godly ethical business principles not to aggressively use harsh guerilla tactics, severe austerity measures to bully and extort wealth. To ensure the environment is not destroyed irreversibly at the expense of greed. Those who find themselves at the brunt of rich oppressors must exercise patience under trials and sufferings according to James 5:7-11. The sin of complaining against God or swearing is cautioned against in James 5:12. We are directed on how to act, both under affliction and in prosperity, James 5:13. Prayer for the sick, and anointing with oil, are prescribed, James 5:14, 15. Christians are directed to acknowledge their faults one to another, and to pray one for another, and the efficacy of prayer is proved, James 5:16-18. Christian believers are commended to do all they can to bring back those that stray from God’s ways of truth.

THEY CHANGED THEIR MINDS

In Acts 28:1-8 in the Bible says, Paul experienced shipwreck and landed at Malta. God told Paul to advise the centurion in charge against setting out on the journey but he ignored Paul. So God assured Paul the passengers and crew will be saved although they lost the ship in a storm. 1 When brought safely through on the island called Malta 2 The natives showed extraordinary kindness. It was raining so they set up camp and because of the cold they kindled a fire and were well received by the natives. 3 But when Paul had gathered a bundle of sticks and laid them on the fire, a viper came out because of the heat and fastened itself on his hand. 4 When the natives saw the creature hanging from his hand, they began saying to one another, “Undoubtedly this man is a murderer, though he was saved from the sea justice has not allowed him to live. 5 However Paul shook the creature off into the fire and suffered no harm. 6 But they were expecting that he should swell up or suddenly fall down dead. But after they had waited a long time and had seen nothing unusual happen to him, they changed their minds and began to say that he was a god. God’s protected and saved Paul from the viper’s venom. God makes strangers friends when in distress. Although Paul was originally wrongly labelled and despised, they changed their minds to regard Paul as a god from zero villain to deity hero instantly. They were more friendly but considered heathens and so-called barbarians condemned by civilised nations professing to be Christians. The people thought Paul was a murderer so viper sent by God’s Divine justice to avenge blood of his victims.  However, the Divine Consuming fire of God Almighty Jehovah Nissi burnt the viper to death and saved Paul’s life from tragedy. So does God continue to burn all adversary spiritual and physical serpents against His Children in Jesus Name so gives us victory by causing us to triumph always in Jesus Name..

So, while they looked on expecting Paul to be swollen or fall down dead suddenly. After they looked a great while and saw no harm came to him, they changed their minds and said that he was a god.  In Acts 18:5, Silas and Timothy came down from Macedonia to join Paul who began devoting himself completely to the word, solemnly testifying to the Jews Jesus was the Christ. 6 But when they resisted and blasphemed, he shook out his garments and said to them, “Your blood be on your own heads and I am clean. From now on I will go to the Gentiles. 7 Then he left there and went to the house of a man named Titius Justus, a worshipper of God, whose house was next to the synagogue. In Acts 20:26-28, Paul declared therefore I testify to you this day that I am innocent of the blood of all. 27 For I did not shrink from declaring to you the whole purpose of God. 28 Be on guard for yourselves and for all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood. Jesus Purchased His Church with his own blood so ransomed Paul and all believers from all evil. Paul shook out his clothes in protest and said to them, “Your blood be on your own heads. Ironically, in Acts 8:1, Saul was present when the first Christian martyr Stephen was killed by angry mob giving approval to his death as recorded in Acts 7.57 to 8:1. Paul’s authority allowed by high priests and Sanhedrin permitted enforced killings before salvation. In Acts 9:1, Paul breathing out threatenings and slaughter against disciples of the Lord, was responsible for the men, women children carried bound to Jerusalem for their killing though not directly his hate filled attitude against Christians endorsed murderSaul’s hands were once imbued with innocent blood there watching clothes to enable others to undertake destructions giving approval to death. Paul approved murder of Christians by  participating and condoning persecution for their death. The conversion of Paul brought the wild untamed torturer, who caused  blood shed under Jesus, to tame and make him subject to his commandment. Paul repented in true deep humility and modesty and confessed in 1 Timothy 1:15 Christ Jesus Came to Save sinners. 15 The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom he felt was the worst foremost sinner. In Acts 20:26 Paul declared to testify he is innocent of the blood of all men. Paul by faith boldly declared himself free from blood guiltiness by saying  he had nobody’s blood upon his hands. 27 So did not shrink from declaring the whole purpose of God. Paul confirms there is now no condemnation for those in Christ Jesus. Paul’s past cruelty, erased from his records, nailed to the cross of Jesus. Paul’s scarlet red sin turned white as snow so of no effect. 
Paul was seen in the past a ‘murderer’ but accepted Christ so declared himself innocent of blood. God’s grace and mercy was extended to Paul who did evil and much harm to the saints by approving killing of Christians. Saul violently persecuted the church of God so began to destroy and ravage the church. Going and entering house after house, he dragged and wasted the church of God, as he said in Acts 9:13. He felt in 1 Corinthians 15:9 he was the least of the apostles and not even fit to be called an apostle because he persecuted God’s church. The important point is God uses anyone to bring lost people to Christ. The Lord used Paul, a prolific persecutor of Christians to evangelize to people of all kinds in many lands, and write 2/3 of the New Testament. Christ in heaven redeemed Paul from spiritual blindness and man-made rules so freed by the saving grace of Jesus’ sacrifice as Paul explains in 2 Corinthians 12:7-20. Paul left Asia not for fear of persecution 29 but said departure savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock. The Holy Ghost made ministers overseers of the flock as shepherds true to their calling of the Master’s concern for the flock committed to their charge. Paul spoke about their souls with affection and concern to be full of care of what would become of them. Paul directs them to look up to God with faith, and commends them to the word of God’s grace. The foundation of their hope and fountain of joy, was walking right with God. They knew there is a God who governs the world so things do not come to pass by chance but by Divine direction. That evil pursues sinners but good works God rewards so wicked works God will punish. Murder is a dreadful crime punished so they thought all wicked people were punished in this life. Though some are made examples in this world, to prove there is a God and a Providence, many are left unpunished to prove there is a judgement to come. They thought all who were remarkably afflicted in this life were wicked people. Divine revelation sets this matter in a true light. Good men often are greatly afflicted in this life, for the trial and increase of their faith and patience. In the neighbourhood of that land belonged to the leading man of the island, named Publius in Acts 28:7, who had estate nearby as the chief official of the island. He welcomed them to his home with generous hospitality by entertaining them courteously. 
 
All the people both high and low gave Paul full attention, so impressed by the manifestation demonstrating the Great Power of God. Again as before in Acts 14:11, the crowd saw what Paul had done they lifted up their and shouted in the Lycaonian language, the gods have come down to us in human form. People often tend to associate the messenger with the unseen power in action. Similarly, in Acts 12:22, the people gave a shout saying, it is the voice of a god and not of a man. When God miraculously does a supernatural act, people need to remember to give God the due thanks, glory and adoration He deserves. Paul’s deliverance from the danger increased the strength of faith and the grace of Christ. Believers shake off the temptations of satan with holy resolution. Paul ignored the despises, censures and reproaches of men to trust in God. They at first looked him contempt but Paul had the testimony of holy conscience. Like Paul, we shake off all spiritual and physical vipers into the fire in Jesus Name. Jesus said, all power in heaven and earth is given to all believers, over all power of the enemy, to thread on serpents and scorpions, lions and adders so nothing shall by any means hurt believers in Jesus Name. It does no harm, except to try to distract from duty. God made Paul remarkable among the people so made a way for the receiving the gospel. The Lord God raises up friends for His people in places He leads and makes them blessings to those in affliction. Paul’s wrote using medical language description of medical subject naturally uppermost in his mind.

Having swollen hands, πίμπρασθαι in the Bible or inflammation in the body. The natives in the past were used to seeing whosoever was bitten by such vipers without antidote to suffer harm and death (εἰς οὐδὲν ἄτοπον ἐμπεσοῦται ῤᾳδίως), but Paul suffered no harm of unusual symptoms or fatal consequences. Since they assumed Paul was wicked they were surprised he got away scot-free so they changed their minds. Like the Lycaonians did in Acts 14:11, 19 the mob’s graphic picture fickle mindedness yielding to impulse. The audacity and impunity with which Paul endured the bite of the viper directly fulfilled God’s promise in Mark 16:18. Instead, of swelling from the venomous bite of the viper; with symptoms following said to be acute pain, wounds, bleeding, swelling, first red, afterwards livid, spreading by degrees great faintness a quick, low pulse, sickness, fits, cold sweats; pains in the navel and death Paul stood with strength as overcomer in Christ. The colour of his skin was not jaundice; or had the jaundiced or burnt with blisters. Paul’s immediate death is averted in Christ who conquered and took away the sting of death effect of such poison. Some die within a few hours and others live days, or weeks depending on the toxic venom. So they looked a great while upon Paul to observe whether the inflammation, swelling or death ensued as expected. Yet God performed a miracle right before their eyes so saw no harm come to him. For the first time change happened so Paul was not inflamed, swollen, dead without the familiar effects upon him. They recognised no evil punishment was inflicted on him to conclude he was guilty of a notorious crime. So changed their minds and said that he was a god from murderer ascribed deity for the extraordinary miracle witnessed. The Lystrians said Paul was Mercury and Barnabas was Jupiter after they cured the disabled in Acts 14:11. The inhabitants of Melita thought Paul was Hercules they worshipped on this island. Since then inhabitants of the island believe apostle Paul expelled all poison and venom from vipers. So reported children born in this place fear not snakes or hurt by anything venomous. They take scorpions and eat them without danger there. In Acts 28:8the father of Publius was lying ill in bed afflicted with recurrent fever and diarrhoea. Paul went to see him and prayed for him by laying hands on him so God healed him. Showing hospitality to strangers entertains angels without knowing it. Jesus blesses such nations with favour of God and favour of man. By helping Paul they literally gained by helping themselves in the process inadvertently.

WHY DO THE NATIONS RAGE?

Psalm 2:1 says, Why do the nations rage in uproar and the people devise vain things? 2 The kings of the earth take their stand. And the rulers take counsel together Against the LORD and against His Anointed, saying, 3“Let us tear their fetters apart And cast away their cords from us!”4 He who sits in the heavens laughs, The Lord scoffs at them. 5 Then He will speak to them in His anger And terrify them in His fury, saying, 6 But as for Me, I have installed My King Upon Zion, My holy mountain. I will proclaim the Lord’s decree: He said to me, “You are my son today I have become your father. Ask me, and I will make the nations your inheritance, the ends of the earth your possession. You will break them with a rod of iron; you will dash them to pieces like pottery.” 10 Therefore you kings, be wise; be warned you rulers of the earth.11 Serve the Lord with fear and celebrate His rule with trembling. 12 Kiss His Son or He will be angry and your way will lead to your destruction for His wrath can flare up in a moment. Blessed are all who take refuge in him. Psalm 2 is prophecy in old Testament ascribed to David in Acts 4:25. This frequent quotes and allusion to Psalm 2 in Matthew. 3:17;17:5; Acts 4:25–27; 13:33; Romans 1:4; Hebrew 1:5;5:5 shows Jesus Christ is the Son of David and Son of God in promises given to David come to fulfilment in Jesus. The Father God sent His Son Jesus as Saviour of the world. 15 Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. 16 We have come to know and have believed the love which God has for us. God is love, and the one who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him. 25 who by the Holy Spirit, through the mouth of our father David Your servant, said, ‘WHY DID THE GENTILES RAGE, AND THE PEOPLES DEVISE FUTILE THINGS? 26‘THE KINGS OF THE EARTH TOOK THEIR STAND, AND THE RULERS WERE GATHERED TOGETHER AGAINST THE LORD AND AGAINST HIS CHRIST.’ 27“For truly in this city there were gathered together against Your holy servant Jesus, whom You anointed, Herod, Pontius Pilate, Gentiles and people of Israel.
Though kings and rulers rage, Isaiah 7:7 says the Sovereign LORD God, “‘It will not take place or happen despite their fighting against God.  Their long-term motives or intentions destroyed by God forever. In Acts 4:26 kings of the earth rise up and rulers band together against Jesus. The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed but Psalm 2:10 says Be wise now therefore, O you kings: be instructed, you judges of the earth. In Psalm 48:4, see, the kings assembled, they passed by together. In Psalm 110:5, The Lord at your right hand shall strike through kings in the day of his wrath. In Matthew 2:16, Herod, when he saw that he was mocked by wise men, was exceeding  angry and sought to kill Jesus. In Luke 13:31 The same day there came certain Pharisees, saying to him,some Pharisees came and said to him, get away from here for Herod wants to kill you. He said to them, Go and tell that fox, Listen, I am casting out demons, performing cures today and tomorrow and on the 3rd day I finish my work. Yet today, tomorrow, and the next day I must be on my way because it is impossible for a prophet to be killed away from Jerusalem. Jerusalem, Jerusalem the city that kills prophets and stones those sent to it! How often have I desired to gather your children together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings and you were not willing! See your house is left to you. I tell you, you will not see me until the time comes when you say, “Blessed is the One who comes in the name of the Lord. In Luke 23:11,12 Herod with his men of war set him at nothing and mocked him. In Acts 12:1-6 at that time Herod the king stretched forth his hands to vex certain people in the church. And he killed James the brother of John with the sword. In the Gospels, the Pharisees in Luke are largely antagonistic to Jesus and the disciples, apostles and believers. So nation is rising against nation. It feels as though we are on the brink of another world war. In the midst of the growing turmoil and increasing uncertainty. 

In Revelation 17:12-14 And the ten horns which you saw are ten kings, which have received the power is the reason against Christ and Christians. So they gathered all the rulers and their armies to a place called Armageddon. “Then I saw the beast gathering the kings of the earth and their armies in order to fight against God. In Matthew 26:3,59 Then assembled together the chief priests, and the scribes, and the the rulers against Jesus. In Matthew 27:1 When the morning was come, all the chief priests and elders of the  decided to kill JesusActs 4:5-8 And it came to pass on the morrow, that their rulers, and elders, and scribes killed Jesus. The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers were gathered together, against the Lord. The kings of the earth take their stand, and rulers meet together against the Lord and against his Messiah. So believers‘ pray Boldly for God to shorten the Psalm 2:2 attack by kings of the earth and the rulers band against God.The kings of the earth prepare for battle. The rulers plot together against the LORD Christ’s throne set up in His church in the hearts of all believers. Alpha male supremacists fight against God’s Anointed counsel on earth so gather kings against the Holy LORD God’s Chosen One. In 2:1-6 we are here told who would appear as adversaries to Christ. As this world is the kingdom of satan unconverted men of every rank, party and character, are stirred up by him to oppose the cause of God. In Ephesians 6:12, believers wrestle not against flesh and blood but against principalities, powers and spiritual wickedness in high places and rulers of the darkness of this world. The devil has unleashed a fierce battle for the souls of men, women, children, young people all over the world. Through wars, terrorism and severe persecution to try to prevent them from coming to the knowledge of God by faith in Jesus. The rulers of earth generally have been most active. The truth and precepts of Christianity are against ambitious projects of worldly lusts so they aim at this opposition. They would break asunder the bands of conscience and cords of God’s commandments they will not receive but cast them away as far as they can. These enemies show no good cause for opposing God’s Just and Holy Government which received by all, would bring heaven upon earth in perfect peace. They wish for success in opposing so powerful a kingdom. These coalition nations listed in Psalm 83 are modern identities based on work by Bill Salus and Joel Richardson as follows:

  • Tents of Edom:  Palestinians and Southern Jordanians
  • Ishmaelites:  Saudis (Ishmael is the father of the Arabs)
  • Moab:  Palestinians and Central Jordanians
  • Hagrites:  Egyptians or possibly northern Jordanians
  • Gebal (Byblos):  Hezbollah and Northern Lebanese
  • Ammon:  Palestinians and Northern Jordanians
  • Amalek:  Arabs of the Sinai area (ISIS affiliate)
  • Philistia:  Hamas of the Gaza Strip
  • Tyre:  Hezbollah and Southern Lebanese
  • Assyria:  Syrians and Northern Iraqi’s

Each of these nations represented here above: Iran, Iraq, Lebanon/Hezbollah, and Hamas mentioned in the coalition of Psalm 83 nations enlist the help of the other ready and willing groups:  Jordanians, Syrians, Saudis and Sinai Arabs plus others. This prophecy as the watchmen believe is that the battle of Psalm 83 will occur before end-time invasion against Jerusalem described in Ezekiel 38.  That battle involves the following nations: “Persia [Iran], Cush [the upper Nile region] and Put [Libya, some of Egypt and north Africa] will be with them, all with shields and helmets, also Gomer [Ukraine] with all its troops, and Beth Togarmah [Turkey, Turkomen, Turkestan and Armenia] from the far north with all its troops the many nations with you stated in Ezekiel 38:5–6. Ezekiel’s latter-times invasion coalition comes to “plunder and loot” in v 38:12, not to destroy Israel.  There is a divine purpose as The Lord promises to Gog, the leader of the coalition, “I will bring you against My land, so the nations may know Me when I am proved Holy through you before their eyes in v 38:16. In the context of Ezekiel’s prophecy, the prophet observes that the invasion occurs after the land of Israel has “recovered from war” perhaps the war of Psalm 83 and after the people have been “gathered from many nations to the mountains of Israel, which had long been desolate in verse 38:8. So while the nations of Ezekiel 38 do not seem to be in place yet to plunder and loot Israel, it does seem that the nations of Psalm 83 are already united and very close to invading in an attempt to wipe out Israel’s name forever. At this stage in God’s unfolding plan for Israel and the world, we can stay vigilant in our watch and prayer for wisdom in these last days, sharing with others the news of the Bible’s many prophecies, especially those that reveal the identity of the Jewish Messiah. Moreover, the purpose of the invasion in Psalm 83 is to attempt to wipe out Israel as a nation “so that Israel’s name is remembered no more”  Psalm 83:4 as their the stated goal. However, The Lord Jesus has all power both in heaven and in earth, and is Head over all things to the church, notwithstanding the restless endeavours of His enemies. God’s answer to earth’s sorrowing cry is Jesus the Name above all names. God Loves humanity despite His Rejection as Theocratic Head so Compromised by sending Christ’s Physical Throne from God Who said,  “I have placed My chosen king on the throne in Jerusalem on My holy mountain in Psalm 2:6 so God Set up Christ in the hearts of all believers who will rule and reign as kings with Christ.

In verse 2. The kings of the earth set themselves; or draw themselves up in array in Jeremiah 46:4. Such kings as Herod the Great, Herod Agrippa, Nero, Galerius, Diocletian, Julian the Apostate, etc. There is always warfare between the world and the Church as some kings to take part mostly on worldly side. Rulers take counsel together having authority below rank of kings so give orders. In spite of great persecution, the Gospel is preached in all nations so overwhelmingly spiritually hungry billions are saved in Jesus Name to find the answer to life in God’s Vital Word for daily life. Such were the ethnarchs and tetrarchs of the first century, the governors of provinces under the Roman emperor, the members of the Jewish Sanhedrin, and the like. These last frequently “took counsel against the Lord” in Matthew 26:3 – 5; Matthew 27:1; Acts 4:5, 6; Acts 5:21-41). Against the Lord, and against his Anointed, saying. In David’s time the recognized “anointed of the Lord” was the divinely appointed King of Israel in 1 Samuel 2:10; 1 Samuel 12:3, 5; 1 Samuel 16:6; 1 Samuel 24:6, 10; 1 Samuel 26:7, 16; 2 Samuel 1:14, 16: 19:21; 22:51; Psalm 17:50; 20:6; 28:8, first Saul, and then David; but David here seems to designate the term to a Greater King than himself as The True Theocratic King, whom he typified. The kings of the earth set themselves so rose and stood up in great wrath and fury and presented themselves in a hostile manner and opposed the Messiah. As Herod the great, king of Judea bestirred himself, and sought to take away the life of Jesus in his infancy; and Herod Antipas, tetrarch of Galilee called king in Mark 6:14; who with his men of war mocked him, and set him at nought and Pontius Pilate, the governor of Judea, who represented the Roman emperor, and condemned him to death, Matthew 27:26; and all the kings of the earth ever since, who ever persecuted Christ in his members, and have set themselves with all their might to hinder the spread of his Gospel and the enlargement of his interest; And the rulers take counsel together; as did the Jewish Sanhedrin, the great court of judicature among the Jews, the members of which were the rulers of the people, who frequently met together and consulted to take away the life of Christ: it includes all other governors and magistrates who entered into schemes against the Lord GOD and against Anointed Messiah Christ the Lord and Jehovah. In  In Matthew 22:41-46 and Psalm 110:1 the King David again prophesied, The LORD GOD Almighty said to my lord Jesus, “Sit at My Right Handthe place of honour until I Make your enemies a footstool for your feet. “‘The Lord said to my Lord: “Sit at my right hand until i make your enemies. Christ baffled his enemies before David’s death on how His forefather call Him Lord for he must reign until God put all enemies under his feet. All things to be put under His feet, antichrist, enemy king’s wars waged. Jehovah Nissi is the Name of the LORD God Almighty in battle Who Puts enemies under His Feet. In 1 Corinthians 15:25, Mark 12:36, Luke 20:42 David said by Holy Spirit My Lord must Reign so all enemies under Jesus Feet.
This Psalm of David speaks about future events many years in advance before Jesus was born. This same verse is recounted in Bible in the book of Matthew 22:44, Luke 20:43, Acts 2:35, The LORD said to my Lord, Sit at My Right Hand till humble tlll enemies making them a footstool under your feet. Jehovah Elohim LORD GOD said unto Lord Jesus Sit On My Right Hand till I make enemies your footstool. The LORD GOD declared Lord Jesus’ VICTORY over world governments in Armageddon. Temporary rulers will be footstool for Jesus Feet  in Psalm 110:1 as king David a type of Christ defeated God’s enemy Goliath.In Hebrew, the first “LORD” refers to Jehovah, or Yahweh, and the second “Lord” is Adonai Jesus. Therefore, the first verse actually reads, “Yahweh said to my Adonai. After Jesus conquered sin and death and rose from the dead, He returned to the Father. And the Father said, “Sit at My right hand, till I make Your enemies Your footstool.” As Joseph Prince says, Jesus’ throne attitude is to Sit and expect His Father to bring all His defeated enemies under His feet. In biblical times, defeated enemies were brought back in chains and the victorious king would sit on his throne and put his feet up on the backs of his defeated enemies as a sign of victory. They were not mere head hunters collecting battle trophies as the accounts of the classical historians showed but ensured documented atrocious crimes of horrific images in graphic art form monument statutes on public display in museums as evidence against themselves. So, Jesus’ conquered enemies being dragged to Him one by one to put under His feet. God tells us to have same throne attitude as Jesus to rest while He makes our enemies our footstool. Jesus Raised from death is Seated at GOD’S Right Hand and God placed all things under His Feet and appointed Him to be head over Israel and the church in Ephesians 1:20, 22–23. The church body of Christ has God’s Power and Authority so more than Conquerors in Jesus Name. Jehovah Nissi the Mighty One Himself in battle is the One Who makes enemies our footstool. God’s Word is Truth so He keeps His Word, God is telling us to have same throne attitude as Jesus to rest as He makes enemies our footstool.

So with each passing day, we have all things, including the defeated enemies of disease, poverty, depression and all kinds of curses, being put under our feet in Jesus Name. Many think Jesus will rule in the future and is not doing so right now. Genesis tells us, But The God of peace shall soon crush Satan under your feet. They corrupt the head by deceiving the heart; perverting the judgements by winding people into sin and death by the devil. So believers have assurance as good soldiers of Jesus Christ, they are “shortly” to bruise satan’s head under their feet. In Genesis 3:15, God announces the serpent’s head will be crushed by the seed of woman Jesus Christ. King Solomon told Hiram king David in 1 Kings 5:1-5, “You know David my father was unable to build a house for the name of the LORD his God because of the wars which surrounded him, until the LORD put them under the soles of his feet. 4“But now the LORD my God has given me rest on every side; there is neither adversary nor misfortune so God’s Temple will be rebuilt for perfect peace in Israel once again. 5“Behold, I intend to build a house for the name of the LORD my God, as the LORD spoke to David my father, saying, ‘Your son, whom I will set on your throne in your place, he will build the house for My name. The return of God’s son merits new temple for worship of God. The Bible shows satan as the personal, arch-enemy of Almighty God. So Jesus partook of the nature of humanity through death to bring life and restoration to mankind. As with a swift stamping of the feet one crushes a snake’s head Jesus will BRUISE the head of satan the devil. How does the devil bruise the HEEL of Christ by death of Jesus yielding Himself freely as The Sacrifice to ransom many from sin. The consequence of sin is erased for believers as Jesus bruised the serpent’s head. So the God of peace will soon crush satan under your feet forever after 1000 year Rule. When the enemy was placing his head under THE FEET of Jesus Christ, All Jesus has to do is to come and Conquer him. God Already Authorised and Empowered Jesus before the foundations of the earth. So put all things under His feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church. Christ Already puts down all enemies beneath His Feet so all can Rest assured, HE IS ON THE THRONE NOW ruling from heaven. So in vain the enemies of God rant and rage because Jesus already WON the battle. God Says, “I am bringing My righteousness near, it is not far away; and My salvation will not be delayed.  I will grant salvation to Zion, My splendour to Israel in Isaiah 46:13. The Messiah called Mashiach will wage war against the enemies of Israel and succeed in battle. We know that a day is coming when all nations will gather to battle against Israel; but Yeshua the Messiah will fight for Israel and gain the victory.  All the spoils of the nations will come into the hands of the people of Israel. In that day, we will receive back all that the enemy has stolen from us.  God will restore the years that the swarming locusts have devoured stated in Joel 2:25 so will receive a double portion in our land. Halleluyah! Instead of shame will receive a double portion, and instead of disgrace will rejoice in your inheritance.  You will inherit a double portion in your land, and everlasting joy will be yours in Isaiah 61:7.

JESUS IS THE SON OF GOD

1 John 5:5 asks who overcomes the world? Only the one who believes Jesus is The Son of God. Whosoever believes, accepts, confesses Jesus is The Son of God, Almighty God dwells in him and he in God. Anyone who denies the deity of Christ, denies Doctrine of Christ is among many anti-Christ. Jesus Christ is God’s Specially Chosen Son of God from humble birth. Jesus is the Seed predicted in story of God’s Creation of earth with landmark events leading up to His Crucifixion. All who accept Jesus Christ are sons of God with Jesus Christ joint heir.

Jesus is the Seed predicted in story of God’s Creation of earth with landmark events leading up to His Crucifixion. All who accept Jesus Christ are sons of God with Jesus Christ joint heir. In John 3:16, God so loved the world He gave His Only begotten Son so believers in Jesus will not perish but have everlasting life. In Luke 1:35, an angel visited Mary and said, The Holy Spirit shall come upon you and the power of the Highest shall overshadow you therefore the Holy One born of you shall be called the Son of God

Jesus directly claims to be The Son of God in John 5:25 saying, I tell you the truth a time is coming and is come now when the dead sons of GOD in Christ will hear the Voice of The Son of God and live. If anyone is in Christ, though dead will live. In John 11:25, Jesus said,”I am the resurrection and the life anyone who believes in Me will live after dying. Jesus, “as the resurrection and the life, whoever believes in Me, though he dies yet shall liveThe one who believes in Me, if he dies, will live. In 1 John 5:20, The Son of God came to give understanding to know The True God as we are in The True Son, Jesus, Son of the True God of Eternal life. 

In Genesis 6:1-4 there are many sons of God and daughters. So there are  several other sons of God in the Bible. Those who accept Christ are at peace within by living in Christ at Christ’s feet forever. Like Mary, those who choose Jesus The Eternal Life will never be taken away from them. In 2 Corinthians 5:17, therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old passes away so new creatures are buried with Christ through baptism into death. Then risen from death through the glory of the Father to live a new life in Christ. Though today all feel pain, loss and sadness, death is not the end.


Christians living in hope, living by faith in the resurrected Christ. Remember Jesus’ empty tomb of the risen Christ. In John 8:51, “most assuredly, I say unto you, if anyone keeps My Word, he shall never see death because God eternal has everlasting life overcoming death. One of the most difficult challenges in Christian living is to be in the world but not of the world as shown in John 15:19. Believers in Jesus Christ in the world physically present but not of it so not part of its secular value system as stated in John 17:14-15. To live in the world means more than simply inhabiting so requires active involvement in communities.
Jesus told His disciples to go therefore and make disciples of all nations in Matthew 28:19. Although set apart from the world, God expects all come to them to hear and know the Truth. In John 17:15, Jesus prayed regarding His disciples saying, “I do not ask God to take believers out of the world, but to keep them from the evil one.” All disciples need to stay in the world, not be removed to heaven. In Acts 1:8 and Isaiah 43:10 believers are to be witnesses to the world. Matthew 5:16 tells all God’s Light is to shine before others to point them to God.

Allowing God’s Light to shine requires to others through Christians who believe in Christ. To sponsor evangelism based on biblical norm model of Jesus Christ not of the world. God requires believers to be free from worldly influence in all aspects of life whether participating in government or social process. It means not acting unsaved as believers are in the world so reside on earth but do not take God for granted. Jesus prayed to Father God, “I do not ask you take them out of the world, but keep them from evil. Believers, are set apart despite catastrophic challenges receive support and strength from the Lord God.

God every day lavishes abundant fruits of His Grace and Mercy, new every morning. The True believer follows the Saviour Who died to raise from sin death. As leading people from God, the mark of the spirit of truth is in opposition to spirit of error. The pure and holy doctrine of God is Truth found in the Bible ordained by God Almighty. In ‎Romans 12:1-2, Christians are told do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind. In 1 John 4:2, beloved do not believe every spirit but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.2 By this you know the Spirit of God every spirit that confesses Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God 3 and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the anti-Christ, of which you have heard that it is coming, and now it is already in the world. False teachers speak in agreement with worldly schemes and tastes not to offend carnal men. So the world approves of them. As a result, they are promoted rapidly by men with many followers. The world loves its own ways in rebellion against God. So citizens of heaven with the Spirit of God guided by faith try all spirits to discern whether they are of God or not. And people of God recognise the worldly spirit. In Psalm 1 the Bible says believers must not walk in worldly ways or listen to worldly counsel or sit down among those who mock God. To live in the world but be not of the world. In John 17:11-16 Christ does not pray that they might be rich and great in the world, but that they might be kept from sin, so do not cleave to those who suit the schemes and discourses to worldly corrupt tastes. 1 Peter 2:9 says, believers are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God’s possession to proclaim the excellencies of God Who called those saved out of darkness into God’s marvellous light. We live in world of darkness but not part of darkness. So not of the world because we live in Christ and move and have our being.
