GOD DESTROYS gods & idols

15638006982148295271043831435818.jpgThe ark triumphed over dagon, broken in pieces, after it was ceased in battle. A plan of the enemy to humiliate Israel in battle imploded dagon fell and broke in pieces. Jesus’ triumph over gods or idols means kingdom of satan defeated. The kingdom of Christ in God is living truth eternal Godliness. Be confident of day of triumph in Christ true Ark of Covenant in hearts of mankind to destroy satan’s temple. Idols fall in Psalm 115:5, they have mouths, but cannot speak, eyes but cannot cannot  see, ears, but cannot hear, noses but cannot smell says Isaiah 44:13. All who serve and worship it like them. Psalm 135:16 have mouth cannot speak, eyes cannot see, ears cannot hear no life in their mouths. Isaiah 6:10, They have mouths, cannot speak, eyes cannot see, Jeremiah 5:21,Ezekiel12:2, Matthew 13:15, Acts 28:27. Antiochus’ statue Zeus  in God’s temple Hellenic priest sacrifice pigs to Greek god religion angered Jews. Greek official ordered a Jewish priest to perform a Hellenic sacrifice, the priest Mattathias killed him. In 167 BCE, Jews joined Mattathias and five sons to fight to win freedom from Seleucid authority. Mattathias’ son Judah Maccabee, called “The Hammer”re-dedicated temple in 165 BCE and Jews celebrate event to this day major part of festival of Hanukkah.IMG-20190722-WA0003.jpgGod allows captivity if their hearts turn dull and ears heavy, shut their eyes lest they see with eyes or hear with ears to change and saved. Jesus quoted Isaiah’s prophecy, lest they see with their eyes, hear with their ears and saved. Isaiah 42-53 highlights people serve God with their ears open but did not listen. So he laments over God’s chosen people who copy heathen pagans who shape gods or cast idols with eyes plastered, sculpture wood they call gods. God allows people to have reprobate minds in Romans 1 to do as they like to serve the creature not Creator God. All sins forsaken by them is forgiven so righteous are restored by salvation. Jesus will claim His throne so and all will be dethroned and crucified.  The dagon spirit will not prevail against God’s Children but those who continue Jesus condemns to seek salvation or be entirely destroyed like in Samuel 5:6-12. God warns believers of serving another god in addition to Living God Jehovah so thou shall have no other gods apart from Adonai Elohim. God shows mighty power in defeating Egypt yet in absence of Moses Aaron permitted golden calves but God saved them. Tragedies results from rebellion of idolatry against God. IMG-20190722-WA0002.jpgGod becomes angry with them forsakes them…. Many disasters and calamities came on them, that day they will ask, ‘Have not these disasters come on us because our God is not with us? “I will hide my face that day because of wickedness in turning to other gods” says Deuteronomy 31:16-18. In 1 Kings 11 Solomon’s idolatry of love of foreign women: Pharaoh’s daughter, Hittite and Moab, Ammon, Edom, Sidon. Were from nations the LORD said to Israel “Never intermarry with them to tempt you to follow their gods.” Solomon obsessed by love had 700 and 300 concubines. In old age, wives tempt him to follow idol gods no longer committed to LORD God like father David. Solomon followed Astarte goddess of Sidonian, Milcom idol of the Ammonites. Solomon did evil as LORD  considered not wholeheartedly follows the LORD. Solomon built site on hill east of Jerusalem for Chemosh idol of Moab, Molech idol of Ammonites. These things for his foreign wives to burn incense to sacrificed to their gods. God Pronounces judgment on Solomon angry because his heart turned from the LORD God of Israel who appeared to him twice. God commands him not to follow other gods, but Solomon did not obey God. LORD  told Solomon, “I will tear kingdom from you to give to your sons. I will not do it in your lifetime because of your father David. I will tear it from hands of your son. I will not tear whole kingdom away from you. I will give your son one tribe for my servant David’s sake and sake of JERUSALEM THE CITY I CHOSE.”15638808712343548709652712321450.jpg15638816264066145787514658232527.jpg15638815050961186563612446522861.jpgElijah killed Jezebel’s 400 baal prophets to restore God worship in vain and 7000 true prophets of God could not change idolatory in Israel. Elect 144,000 Israel males sealed in Revelations has tribe of Dan excluded by idolatory. Revelation 7 missed from 144,000 the tribe of Dan. Twelve thousands from Jacob’s twelve sons and twelve tribes of Israel includes tribe of Levi’s inheritance in the LORD. Levites refused to worship golden calf so God made priests in his Tabernacle. Joseph’s tribe split into two, each son Manasseh and Ephraim received an inheritance. In the list of those sealed in Revelation, tribe of Levi is listed. Tribe of Dan excluded, suggest false prophet of Revelation may be from tribe of Dan. Others see Dan’s role in leading Israel into idolatry as a cause for being left out of the 144,000 in Judges 18:30–31. Tribes not blessed by inclusion in this seal, prophetic books indicate members of tribe of Dan will be saved and receive land in the millennial kingdom in Ezekiel 48:2. Mankind may lost track of members of tribes, God but God knows them all in Revelation 7:4–8.IMG-20190722-WA0000.jpg
In Judges 18:30, The children of Dan set up graven image in new city of Dan and built house for it, where Jeroboam later set up one of his golden calves. Danites succeeded in Micah’s house, venerated graven images brought with them and set up religious worship. Molten image, teraphim, ephod all placed together for devotion and consultation. Jonathan son of Gershom, son of Manasseh as priests to tribe of Dan resided in the city of Dan Jonathan the Levite Micah took into his house made priest. Danites took to Laish priest son of Gershom, son of Manasseh Gershom son of Moses’ grandson. Like Phinehas grandson of Aaron in Judges 20:28, grandson of Moses in honour of Moses. Forgot virtues of his grandfather, Moses the priests in Dan in captivity of the land for idolatry. Idolatrous priests, through time of Samuel, David, Solomon in captivity of Israel, time of Jabin king of Canaan. Gersom’s idolatry continued in house of God at Shiloh, ark captured by Philistines. House of Shiloh forsaken  says Psalms 78:58-61 as God permitted.IMG-20190722-WA0001.jpgIn Acts 19:24-41, Demetrius and fellow silversmiths in Ephesus lost demand for idol products, statuettes of the goddess Artemis. Loss is attributed to growing numbers of the Christians who do not worship gods made with human hands. Highlights Christian population growth frightens diminished revenue of crafts creating statues. People against faith of Christians due to loss of money for their silversmiths. So their greedy economic gain keeps people in bondage connected to idols to enrich such masters. Growth of Christianity’s success turned believer from adherence to false gods. The more observant Christians increased so fewer people bought statuettes of idol gods to engage in religious rituals. It threatened economic production of an organization that profited greatly from idol worship. This trend in metropolitan Ephesus sets precedence for booming business that parasited profit at expense of souls. 15638085661946643585036976509700.jpgThey feared if whole of Asia persuaded by Paul to draw away from gods made with hands their trade may end. Idols  in disrepute and temple gods scorned to deprived all Asia and world of worship. And enraged, they shouted and rushed together to the theatre, dragging Gaius and Aristarchus the Macedonian Paul’s travelling-companions. Paul was not let in crowd by disciples but sent a message urging him not to venture into theatre. The crowd instructed Alexander, the Jews pushed forward to make defence before people. A town clerk quietened crowd and said, citizens of Ephesus city of Ephesian’s statue fell from heaven…. These men are not temple robbers or a blasphemer of gods, we are in danger of being charged with rioting so dismissed the assembly. Convincing nations of idol god worshippers, their god will not save them eternally was not well received. So stirred up anger and false charges so in the end they l left. Revelations 6 states some people will receive Christ and be saved but others reject God’s spirit filled Christian Gospel message and perish. As believers are ordained to go into all the world to preach the Gospel, Some seeds fall on good fertile ground will multiply a hundred fold others fall on hard soil and perish. Jesus said He does not care about the world but prays for all those who love him to be preserved until He returns. Pray for all people for God to open their spiritual eyes to see and hear the truth and be saved from kingdom of darkness into glolious kingdom of light of the Gospel. You can take the horse to the water but you cannot force them to drink. Share love of God and God saves them in Jesus Name. Pray for the whole family to be delivered from generations of idolatry convenants entered into by their ancestors and forefathers against God. Plead the Blood if Jesus and like Gidron, Hezekiah and Manasseh build a new altar to living God. Let deliverance ministers deal with idol gods, do not do so yourself. Put on the whole armour of God and cover yourself with Jesus blood and worship the Only One True God.IMG-20190723-WA0000.jpg

JESUS’ VICTORY OVER beast

1555606685258-1635185667.jpgAfter 70 weeks of Daniel, the invasion of Israel by the Northern Confederacy will bring the beast and his armies to defend Israel as her protector. Daniel 11:40-45 explains campaign of the King of South moving against beast and false prophet coalition during end – times. The King of the South goes to battle with North King and the Northern Confederacy in Daniel 11:40. Jerusalem is destroyed with those armies of the Northern Confederacy. So armies of beast move to Israel in Daniel 11:41 and conquer a territory in Daniel 11:41–42. Edom, Moab, Ammon escape but beast hears defeat and will move his headquarters to Israel and assemble his army there. The destruction of the beast happens in Daniel 11:45 in the battle of Armageddon as a final war between the human governments and God opposers.15630994714081721717133229740671.jpgGod refuses to allow evil rule in Psalms 2:2. Stock market chaos credit crunch of banks, currencies, commodities plunge world into a full-scale global economic crisis. The impending economic collapse pushes all nations into WWIII. Massive thermonuclear destruction becomes a reality. God sent prophets to all nations for entire nations to take heed, listen be spared total destruction. God is warning nations of what is about to be unleashed upon the world. God will end mankind’s self-rule. God will intervene and stop all mankind annihilating themselves. Their control of God’s material possessions is the crux of the matter of conflict. So God steps as those nations destroy one-third of civilisation. Mankind cannot govern themself properly or take care of earth God gave us. Billions die in worst times in history but God saves His Children or nobody on the earth will survive beast.  15630992247998294664339643058409.jpgMankind self-destructs but will not wipe God’s creation. The new earth in Isaiah 65:17; 66:22; 2 Peter 3:13, Revelation 21 : 1 will be restore to perfect Godly world and the new heaven will come down to the earth despite GREAT TRIBULATION destruction. Battle of Armageddon will bring human rule to end in Daniel 2:​44 after beast is killed. Armageddon in the Bible Revelation 16:16 will happens in a place in Israel. As the “kings of the earth gather together to war against Israel in a GREAT DAY of the LORD Jehovah, God Almighty in Revelation 16:14 sends back Jesus Christ to lead heavenly army into VICTORY. God’s enemies led by beast in Revelation 19:11-​16; 19-​21 are defeated.  God’s enemies oppose GOD AUTHORITY treat God with contempt in Ezekiel 39:7. 1438998346.jpgSo battle of Armageddon is in Jeremiah 25:32-​34; Ezekiel 39:17-​20. Armageddon  Har-​Magedon called Har Meghiddohn in history had decisive battles fought there in Bible in Judges 5:​19, 20;2 Kings 9:​27; 23:29. As Armageddon nations assemble against God’s rule, God uses HIS POWER of hailstorm, earthquake, flood, drought wildfire, sulfur, tsunami, locust, plagues thunder, lightning and diseases says Job 38:22,23;  Ezekiel 38:19, 22; Habakkuk 3:​10,11;  Zechariah 14:12. God’s enemies kill each other not realising God uses a friendly fire to fight against themselves in ​Ezekiel 38:21, 23; Zechariah 14:13, in Psalm 37:29; 96:10; Ecclesiastes1:4. And God’s servants survive in Revelations 7:​9, 14; Psalm 37:34 on earth. This world’s wicked human societies opposing God in 1 John 2:​15-​17 will fight Armageddon war to end old for new in Matthew 24:3.15630983504011911803044281208281.jpg Great tribulation culminates in battle of Armageddon. Jesus said: “that day, hour or time nobody knows, not the angels of heavens or the Son but ONLY the Father in Matthew 24:21, 36-37. Christian, Jews, apocalypse millennialists based on Book of Revelation, 20:1-6 recall the witnesses of Christ’s ascension to heaven after His death and resurrection. They heard the angels said in Acts 1:11, “Men of Galilee why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus taken from you to heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen Him go into heaven.” The Second Coming is literal return of Jesus Christ on earth as KING given POWER and GLORY to rule forever. For the first thousand years in Revelation 20:1-6 the prophets understand this. So His Second Coming in Isaiah 7:14; 9:6-7; Zachariah 14:4 says Jesus, Messiah fulfilled all Old Testament prophecy of Second Coming.wp-1555524314418..jpgChrist fulfilled prophecies and He took our place to receive penalty of our sins. His Second Coming defeats sin eternally. Before Jesus’ Second Coming is Rapture  and Jesus will come to remove believers from earth in 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; 1 Corinthians 15:50-54. So Second Coming of Jesus Christ’s return to earth defeats devil beast to establish His reign of true, justice, peace forever. His Kingdom has no end but all left behind after rapture will face an evil world. 2 Thessalonians 2: 11 says “lawlessness” held in check by Holy Spirit restraint taken out of world. Without born-again believers. Christian workers in all hospitals, nursing homes, schools, or orphanages, rescue missions relief agencies, and those Christian law enforcement, social worker, healthcare, churches, empty no service community. So beast takes total control of the earth and evil rampage throughout the world.15630997180605653887137399502081.jpgRemaining believers in Divinely sealed, protected in Revelation 12:13-17. Then satan energizes beast and false prophet to kill people not protected by mark of Christ in “a time times and half a time.” God’s wrath judgment continues on the rebellious in world in Revelations 6-16. Lukewarm Christians in Revelations 3: 15, 16, Hebrews 6:12 are left behind in GREAT Tribulation after Rapture. They will experience “judgments” of God in 1 Corinthians 11:31,32 due to carnality or apathy, unbelief in God. The rescue plan in Christ is Rapture to stop the evil beast action so chastened by LORD’s wrath in Revelation 7:13. During the seven years of GREAT TRIBULATION in Zephaniah 1:14-18 is great day of the LORD so near with the mighty man will cry bitterly. It is a day of wrath, trouble distress, of waste desolation, thick darkness, gloom, clouds A day of trumpet, alarm against fenced cities, high towers, distress, so men walk like blind men, because of sin against the LORD their blood poured out as dust and their flesh as dung. No silver or gold can deliver them in day of the LORD’S wrath. 15630984696873664185974283265186.jpgThe whole land is devoured by the fire of His jealousy to make speedy riddance of their dwelling in land. Zephaniah 1:14-18 messages of judgment depict future Day of the LORD on the world. Matthew 24:21-22 says “time of trouble” mankind in GREAT TRIBULATION unseen before since beginning of the world to this time, will not be seen ever after. And except the evil days are shortened then no one will be saved: but the for elect’s sake evil days will shortened by God in Jesus Name. The Rapture intervenes to rescue those who believe in God to provide great escape alive into heaven in presence of God. In  Zephaniah and Matthew 24 those left behind after the rapture will experience GREAT tribulation never seen upon this earth. Luke 21:22-27 says, the vengeance of God will be fulfilled, woe to those with child or gives suck in those days for there shall be great distress in land and wrath upon people. Some fall by edge of sword, led away captive in all nations. Jerusalem trodden down by the Gentiles, until times of the Gentiles fulfilled. There are signs in the sun, moon stars and on earth distress of nations, perplexity; the sea and waves roaring; Men’s hearts fail by fear looking at things on earth, powers of heaven are shaken. They will see Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.1555072645994513078032.jpg

 

1555538259811570340261.jpgAfter rapture all nations on earth are in chaos turmoil and governments seek to restore civil order to regain economic equilibrium. Profound shifts of power take places, EU is the new superpower, America’s power authority is lost people in key positions suffer. Prophecy, says a man will profess a plan to quell fears of war in Middle East in Daniel 9:27. The prophecy in Revelation 6:2 says a rider on white horse gives fake peace. Peace Covenant Confirmed by great world leader will arrive in time in seven-year peace deal plan. Israel agrees to a fake peace deal with enemies so whole world accept leader’s masterplan. But Israel’s acceptance offends God as the covenant is made with death and hell says Isaiah 28 causing God’s judgment and wrath to begin to fall on world. Israel signs peace treaty with a world leader, an antiChrist marks start of the GREAT TRIBULATION in Revelation 6:2. All left behind after the rapture suffer GREAT TRIBULATION in Three and half years. Abomination of desolation takes place in Revelation 13.15630996573531843308702958681808.jpgWhen the beast is authorised by dragon to controls the world, the whole world is filled with wonder follows the beast.  People worship dragon for giving the authority to the beast and boasting ask, “Who is like the beast? Who can wage war against it.  The beast has mouth to say proud words and to blaspheme with authority for forty-two months. Opens mouth to blaspheme God, slander HIS NAME and HIS dwelling place and those in heaven.Given power he wages war  against God’s Holy people and controls them. Has authority over tribes, people, languages, nations. All inhabitants of earth now to worship beast, all whose names are not written in Lamb’s book of life, the Lamb of God Jesus who was slain to save creation. The “New World Order” alliance digitization of money and RFID chips in human beings are the mark of the beast without which none can buy or sell. Makes governments of nations as puppets in the hands of beast consistent with truth that whole world system is under the dragon, god of this world. Image of the beast in Revelation 13:14,15 set up the by antiChrist or false prophet in Matthew 24:11 for enforced global worship, “so he sits in the Temple of God showing himself to be God.”15630986464616513823913677019400.jpgIn 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4” says, “Let no man deceive you that day will not come until a falling away first. The man of sin will be revealed a son of perdition who opposes and exalts himself above God’s worship to sit as god in God’s Temple. It is autocratic power bulldozing way to destroy others to usurp undue power by promoting self-serving interests. Daniel 9:24-27 is a prophecy of seventy weeks after “prince shall come” and antiChrist makes the seven year treaty with Israel. Ancient Temple rebuilt in Jerusalem so worship is established, breaks covenant “in week” to erect “abominations.” And his idol image mock God’s original Holy place God’s Temple. Daniel 9:27Daniel 11:31;12:11 says temple signals unleash fury against Israel by those who refuse to worship Jehovah Adonai Elohim. And Revelation 11:1-14 says two witnesses in sackcloth identified as Elijah and Moses. Elijah called down fire from heaven in 2 Kings 1:9-15 consumed groups of 50 soldiers destroyed by arrogance. Elijah ‘who stands before God’ in 1Kings 18:18-20 called down fire of God in the Mount Carmel contest against Jezebel’s 400 baal worshippers killed on defeat. Elijah had power to shut heaven for three and half years of drought and famine. Moses called down the fire from heavens to consume Koresh and friend’s rebellion against God in Bible in Numbers 16:28, families, assets, cattle, tents destroyed. Moses, ‘God to Pharaoh’s’ ten plagues in Egypt, turned rivers to blood, killed first borns of Egyptians. And Pharaohs army killed in red sea in pursuit of Israelites.  1553364619014-1225479167.jpg15632842282482891926267358376625.jpg15632844185552230623581372484649.jpgTheologians says the two prophets work with 1444,000 Jews before and during  Second Coming of Christ. The Gentiles will trample the court of God’s Temple for 42 months, 1,260 days or 3½ years as the two witnesses prophesy. They are  two olive trees and two lampstands who stand before the LORD God. Will devour all enemies with fire out of their mouths with power over sky, waters strike earth with same plagues in Egypt’s by Moses in Exodus 7. The two witnesses destroy all enemies with fire in Revelation 11:5 like Elijah’s did in 2 Kings 1. Moses and Elijah appeared in Jesus transfiguration in Matthew 17:3–4. Jews expect Moses and Elijah to return, based on prophecy of Elijah’s coming in Malachi 4:5. God’s promise to raise up prophet like Moses in Deuteronomy 18: 15, 18. Jews believe Moses will return one of two witnesses. Despite powerful testimonies beast will overcome them and kill them in war. 15630987725122723277464470281184.jpgThe beast will come from the Abyss and attack them to overpower, kill and slay them. God’s two witnesses, overcomed and killed though undefeated in battles. These two prophesy of God’s judgment against the world but the opposers use weapons at their disposal to kill them. The two witnesses are slain by the beast and false prophets in Revelation 11:7. A short while God’s prophets are slain by the two evil world leaders. Revelations 11:9 prophesies people from all kindred, tongues and nations shall see those dead bodies on the world’s broadcast satellite cable TV networks and internet fulfilled literally. Global television will show the two witnesses martyred who choose not to use supernatural powers so lay down their lives voluntarily fulfills Revelation 11:7 prophecy. Three and half days the people on earth celebrate their death by exchanging gifts for tormenting them, don’t permit two witnesses’ burial, God  Spirit of life enters to resurrects them. Their resurrection puts great fear into all witnessing revival, others give glory to God and they ascend into heaven. In an hour a great earthquake that occurs kills 7000 men destroying tenth of city.1556397177971-1068246670.jpgLed to Great Tribulation war in heaven against satan’s angels Revelation 12:7-13. The war in heaven won by Michael’s angels who fought against dragon; and the dragon fought angels,God prevailed so satan’s place not again in heaven9 the dragon was cast out the old serpent devil satan, deceives whole world, cast out to earth with angels. A loud voice in heaven says now comes salvation, strength and the kingdom of our God and power of his Christ: for accuser of our brethren is cast down for accusing them before our God day and night. 11 They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; they loved not their lives unto death. 12 Rejoice, you heavens and you who dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of earth and sea. for the devil comes down having great wrath because he has a short time.13  The dragon is cast on earth persecuted woman who brought forth tman child. God stops satan’s evils in Revelation 12:12 to defeat and save manchild safe in heaven. 15632860656613412963579496112170.jpg15632861584245798913428317805070.jpgRevelation 6: 1 Jesus says Lamb of God opens the seals of scroll of seven seal of judgments. Lord Jesus in Hebrews 1: 8, says wrath of God is poured on Christ to save believers in world. The seals are four horsemen of apocalypse, fifth seal cry of martyrs and sixth seal judgments. At end of sixth seal in verses 15-17 the kings of earth, great men, rich men, the commanders, mighty men, slave or free men hide in caves, rocks, mountains, say fall on us and hide us from face of Him who sits on throne and from wrath of Lamb. The great day of Christ Jesus has come, who can stand it?” Judgments of wrath of Lamb Jesus in Revelation 16 and 17:6 not on all who repent, so saved but on all enemies the LORD punish on Day of Lord Jesus in 1 Corinthians 1:8; 5:5; Philippians 1:6, 10; 2:16; and in 2 Thessalonians 2:2. “Day of the LORD” is judgment time of GREAT TRIBULATION and liberation by Christ of His Church in Zechariah 14:1-4. God deals with Israel after rapture of church continued in millennial age preceding creation of new heaven and new earth in Isaiah 65 :17; 66:22; 2 Peter 3:13, Revelation 21:1.15630994714081721717133229740671.jpg
The world’s egotistical bully dominates financial and political arena in Daniel 7  is the “man of sin, “little horn” with eyes of man and mouth utters great boasting. He is the megalomaniac in his quest for world power. Daniel says, “through his peace negotiations, sanctions, destroy so many in Daniel 8:25. His authority will be overpowering with intense hatred of people using political techniques for his selfish policies. The news media will not be able to resist covering his moves and outrageous shenanigans. But fools those he deceives so people think evil is good and is good. He controls administrations with techonolgy chips, monitoring facial recognition number. People cannot buy or sell without the mark of the beast so he control governments globally. Jesus said he will deceive very elect, if it were possible.” Megalomaniac ego boosted by adulation worshipped by his followers takes seat in temple of God as God. The beast in Temple of God fights God and the Church as the temple of God. Then antiChrist has no restraint, lawlessness already at work. The Lord Jesus will kill him with sword out of his mouth to end antiChrist’s era of world rule. The Holy Spirit works through those on earth and Ephesians 6 tells spiritual forces of evil at work will be destroyed. The invisible supernatural demonic entities deceiving lying will be eliminated. World political wars in Revelation 13:7 cause violence to increase in the world, nation against nation, ethnic cleansing, domestic and global. Men slay one another, peace is removed from earth in Revelation 6:3-4. Poverty inflation and lack of food as wages buy food a day for one person in Revelation 6:5-6. One quarter of earth’s people killed in war, famine, pestilence, wild beast, plagues, viruses and resitant bacteria microbes new infections called malevolent little beasts in Revelation 6:7-8. Many become followers of Jesus killed in Daniel 7:21. Sun is blackened, moon turns red mountains and islands move in Joel 2:30-32. The false sense of security kills one-third on earth and so one-third of trees, green grass is burned by comet or meteors that hits earth and burns houses in Revelation 8:7. 1556397094386776795221.jpgSeas becomes like blood kills one-third sea creatures, destroys one-third ships in Revelation 8:8-9. “Star” Wormwood falls from sky poison one-third all fresh water made bitter, killing many people in Revelation 8:10-11. The sun, moon, stars darkened, day and night reduced to 16 hours not 24 hours in Revelation 8:12. Locusts from underground attack people not followers of Jesus Christ for  5 months in Revelation 9:1-11. Strange creatures will kill one-third of mankind in Revelation 9:13-19. Two witnesses of continue preach Gospel of Jesus Christ for 3 1/2 years but killed midpoint of the 7 year tribulation. Cause the 3 1/2 year world-wide drought killing people. The anti-Christ beast forces all the people to receive mark on right hand or forehead to buy and sell. The beast controls trade wars in socio-cultural, politico economic arena of human activities. All those who received mark will develop a loathsome malignant sore on bodies within a short time in Revelation 13:13-18. The oceans change to blood and so things in sea die in Revelation 16:3. Water is like blood in Revelation 16:4-7. Sun scorch people by fierce heat in Revelation 16:8-9. The anti-Christ’s kingdom of evil falls down in Revelation 16:10-11. Euphrates river dries and the kings of east march west in Revelation16:12. Other armies battle God at Armageddon but mountains and islands disappear. Hailstones crush the armies in Revelation 16:17-22 and 17.  Peter 3:13, Revelation 21:1.

A woman wearing purple, scarlet gold, colour, precious stones, pearls a golden cup in hand full of abominations and of her fornication:17:5On her forehead the name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS, ABOMINATIONS OF EARTH. The prostitutes rides the fake horse 17:6 drunken with blood of saints, blood of martyrs of Jesus so is the great extent of her idolatry.17:9 Here is mind of wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains the woman sits on. The ten horns are ten kings without kingdom to receive power as kings one hour with beast.17:15 The waters the whore sits are peoples of multitudes, nations, tongues. 17:18 This woman from great city reigns over kings of earth by idolatry. Invades foreign powers as apostate fake head so cast out but continues to falsely claim is the greatest on earth in whole realm. So all the pompous, arrogant, self-serving, greedy selfishness on earth is destroyed by God forever and Jesus rules forever.  15630981326051763773280836452187.jpg Ezekiel 23:37, Jeremiah 6:2, Gomer wife of Hosea, on the 8th century BC in Bible in Hosea 1:2-3, God told Hosea to marry whore by Divine appointment. So harlot shows relationship between God, Israel, unfaithful church bride depart from the LORD” in Hosea 1:2. Seven mountains in Revelation 17:9 Jerusalem linked to fall of Babylon in Revelation 18 destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD,.Jesus predicted. Jerusalem’s spiritual harlotry in Isaiah 1 : 21; Jeremiah 2:20; 3:1–11; Ezekiel 16:1-43; Ezekiel 23, Galatians 4:25 prophecies in Matthew 23:34–37, Luke 11:47-51. So Jesus talks of killed prophets, saints by Pharisees. Revelation 17:6 and 18:20, 24 on Babylon in Luke 13:33. And so Great earthquake precede Jesus Christ return with His army to claim earth after sixth seal on Tribulation of God’s wrath falls. Christians on earth in initial indignation in Daniel 11:36 are firstfruit Christians in Revelation 3:5,12; James 1:18, 2 and Thessalonians 2:13 Holy Spirit restrains taken before seven years Tribulation in 9:27, 2 Thessalonians 2:6,7, Revelation 3 :10, Isaiah26:19-21. Second resurrection  after thousand year millennium all the dead and living, raised for Great White Throne Judgement in Revelation 20:4,5. in Acts 1:9-11; Luke 24:7, Matthew 27:52, Ephesians 4: 8,9; James 1:18, Luke 21:36; 1 Thessalonians 4:16,17, 1 Corinthians 15:51,52. The Great Tribulation Harvest after Rapture in Revelation 7:9-14; Luke 17:33,34 by 144000 in Revelation 12:5. 15633007075206732669451495678986.jpgThe 144,000 Jewish Tribes 12 × 12,000 in Revelations 7:4-8; Revelations 12:5; 14:1-5. Martyrs resurrect in Revelations 20:4; Hosea 6:2 Revelations 6:9-11. These are JEWS in the GREAT TRIBULATION God sends angel to seal them on foreheads to protect them from harm and plagues. Revelation 9:4 speaks of creatures from bottomless pit that will hurt “only those not sealed by God or names not written in book of the Lamb. These 144,000 are not hurt by creatures lose things owned, family, property possessions, respect in community glorify Jesus in one purpose, plan and action. With the two witnesses save the great multitudes no man can number from all nations, kindreds, people and tongues, stand before the throne and Lamb, clothed with white robes with palms in their hands; cry with loud voice Salvation belongs to our Lord God who sits on throne and to Lamb. Priestly 144,000 sing “a new song before throne and four living creatures and elders redeemed from earth in Revelation 14:3. They will wear names of Father God and Lamb on their foreheads follow Jesus everywhere He goes in Revelation 14:4. The 144,000 and other righteous people or God’s martyrs refused to submit to beast. So satan kills two witnesses for not giving in to image of beast, rejectors in Revelation 13:7-15. The two witnesses rise up into heaven.15633164823277312287495775168638.jpg Rules over tribes, tongues, nations wars against people many days fall by sword, fire, captivity and plunder in Daniel 11: 32-33. In 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 Jesus raises dead caught in air to be forever be with the LORD. The 144,000 sealed by God live but righteous ones killed for rejecting mark or the worship of beast. Blood of Jesus Christ purchased 144,000 on cross in Galatians 4:5; Hebrews 9:15-17 and 1 Peter 1:18,19; Acts 20:28 so the overcomers defeat devil by the blood of Lamb Jesus and by their Testimony. The Second Coming of Christ is important to give hope and confidence God controls of all things and is faithful to His Word and promises. In Titus 2:13 we wait for the blessed hope of glorious appearing of our Great God, Saviour, Jesus Christ. The Second Coming of righteous King in Revelations 6 to 18 describes end times world devastation of millions. So people perish when the devil person is ruler of the entire world. The Second Coming of Christ end evil in Revelations 19:15-16. Out of His Mouth comes a sharp sword to strike down nations. He will rule with an iron scepter, tread winepress of fury of wrath of God Almighty. On His robe, on thigh is written KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS. Jesus will return in 2 Thessalonians 2:1-2. “The coming of our Lord Jesus Christ to be gathered to Him we ask you not to be alarmed by report, letter, that the “day the LORD already came. Luke 19:11 states true purpose of Christ’s Kingdom. Micah 5:2; Isaiah 7:14 predict first advent and in Isaiah 53:8–9 suffering dying Messiah Isaiah 53:11–12. In Daniel 9:26, Zechariah 12:10 Messiah will be seen in a second coming by His enemies. Ultimate triumph of Christ, is in Zechariah 9:14–15; 12:10–14; 13:1; 9: 14–15; Amos 9:11–15; Jeremiah 30:18; 32:44; 33:11, 26; and Joel 3:1; to lead Israel into salvation. Deuteronomy 30:3–5 predict Messiah’s final Victory time. In Matthew 24:31; Mark 13:27; Isaiah 52:15 and Isaiah 59-62 Jesus returns to earth.  15631002083904527520435096390214.jpgSome doubt so say, ‘When is He coming as promised since our fathers died still everything goes on like since beginning of the creation” in 2 Peter 3:4. Mockers question the delay of Jesus return but only God KNOWS exact day or the Time. After Jesus comes, an angel descends from heaven with chain and key seizes dragon, ancient serpent, devil, satan binds him a thousand years, throws him into a pit, locked and sealed so he cannot deceive nations any more, let out a little while in Revelations 20:2-3. Jesus seats on throne with saints on earth in Jerusalem so physically reigns a thousand years. Immortality transforms bodies to be like Jesus’ glorious body” in Philippians 3:21. Jesus had a body after resurrection in Luke 24:39–42; and John 20:27. Jesus walked, talked, cooked, ate with disciples. The rest of dead come to life at end of a thousand years. Christ is King and priests of God rule a thousand years in Revelation 20:4-6. So Father God will rule in theocracy in HIS righteous kingdom beyond thousand years. They rebuild Jewish Temple in Jerusalem at the Dome of the Rock to establish Judeo Christian practices according to Book of Ezekiel. God will deal with all nations from Mount Zion on DAY of the LORD so those who oppose God will face wrath of God. Mount Zion will be Holy so there will be deliverance for house of Jacob to possess their possessions says Obadiah 1 : 15,17. Obadiah’s vision of the Day of the LORD says the Temple Mount will be recovered, God will REIGN from Mount Zion states Obadiah 15-21. “The Saviour comes to Mount Zion to judge nations and His Kingdom is JEHOVAH’S.”    15587124616321559442597.jpgThe Bible says after the Second Coming  of Jesus He will set up God’s Kingdom on earth. Jesus and Saints will rule for a thousand years while satan is locked down. The Messianic prophecies fulfil a Building of new Third Temple in Ezekiel 37:26-28 for nations to come to worship God in Jerusalem. Jesus is Messiah Jews will embrace in fullness of Gospel in a Third God’s Temple. When Jesus Reigns on earth in Jerusalem in Israel people go to worship God in His Temple. This Temple is central governing place so the headquarters of Jesus Christ. All nations go to worship God in Israel or will have no rain says Zachariah 6:9-15 prophecy. Temple of the LORD is built by Joshua son of Jehozadak. Jesus is Priestly KING in the Temple of the LORD. “The word of the LORD said: Take silver and gold from exiles Heldai, Tobijah and Jedaiah who arrived from Babylon. Go the same day to house of Josiah son of Zephaniah. Take silver, gold, make crown and set it on the head of the high priest Joshua son of Jehozadak. Tell him the LORD Almighty says: ‘Here is the man the branch from his place to build Temple of LORD God Jehovah.15632845166136994354567183668109.jpg15634398664748753317748116550906.jpg20190718_095342.jpg903dd54611ea346f4264a77e09b0c0cd.jpg20190718_101739.jpg15633480918696788924042174641079.jpgHe will build Temple of the LORD clothed with majesty to sit and rule on his throne a priest on his throne.’ The crown given to Heldai, Tobijah, Jedaiah and Hen son of Zephaniah is a memorial in Temple of the LORD. Those far away will come and help build Temple of the LORD, you will know the LORD Almighty sent me to you. This will happen if you diligently obey the LORD your God.” The new Temple built by the Branch for Messiah. The Church is part of new temple Jesus is building. God’s House in Jerusalem will be a place of prayer for all nations in Isaiah 56:7; Mark 11:17i. God followers in end time  in Zion Temple on pilgrimage of people to Jerusalem. The temple’s resurrection parallels Jesus’ resurrection and second coming in Mark 13:2, Matthew 24:2, and Luke 21:6. End-time fulfills promise and prophecy on Zion. Jesus said in Matthew 5: 14; 16:18 John 1:42, New Sanctuary in Mark 14:58; Matthew 26:61 is Messianic Temple literally. Believers as Temples of God full of God’s Holy Spirit worship in covenant restoration of Israel. Messiah  in 2 Corinthians 1:20, Daniel  9:27 and 2 Thessalonians 2:4 in physically restored Third temple. Jesus is True Temple God Incarnate, in Him is “all the fullness of God dwells in Colossians 1: 19. Galatians 3:28 says all are one in Messiah and all Israel shall be saved in Christ Jesus.       15633485167427877540236192120997.jpgGod’s Presence Holy of Holies accessed by body of Christ since Jesus died, the “curtain of the Temple tore in two from top to bottom” in Matthew 27 :51. Jesus’ victory means all enter the Holy place through the Blood of Jesus. This living way opens direct access to God through Jesus in Hebrews 10:20. The Messiah’s Temple will not be destroyed for Jesus is eternal. Holy Temple in Lord Jesus says Ephesians 2:19-22, “You are no longer foreigners and aliens but fellow citizens with God’s people and members of God’s household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus Himself as the Chief cornerstone. In Him whole building joins together to become Holy Temple in the Lord. In Him you are built together to be dwelling God lives in by His Spirit” says I Corinthians 3:16; 2 Corinthians 6:16. In Christ there is no Jew or Gentile all Children of God. God will gather all Jews, remnant, lost tribes back to Land of Israel in Isaiah 43:5-6.    1563349394548748891648738679019.jpgJesus brings PERFECT PEACE ending the racial hatred of oppression, suffering, diseases, no pain, tears, grief or sorrow anymore. Nation will not lift the sword against another nation nor men learn war anymore says Isaiah 2:4. And the knowledge of the God of Israel unites all humanity as one. God is KING over whole world, that day God is Only Name Jehovah known by all worshippers says Zechariah 14:9. The devil loosed “after a season” goes to deceive Gog and Magog attacks Saints in New Jerusalem but is defeated by God’s judgments of His fire coming from Heaven. God’s Great White Throne judgment of all people takes place casts into Lake of Fire in “second death.” The lost stay in the lake of fire in Revelation 19:20; 20:10,14-15; 21:8. Lake of hell fire in Matthew 25: 41, Matthew 18:8 is unquenchable fire in Mark 9:43-44,46–48 as punishment of the lost who reject God and Jesus. Since Rapture lasts 7 years all saints return to live on earth. All brought nothing into world so take nothing out. Assets or lands left behind used in 1000 years. The New Jerusalem comes down with God, golden mansions from heaven and God dwells physically on the New earth permanently in Israel in Jerusalem. And Jesus said those who lost, houses, lands, loved ones, on earth will receive 100fold lands, houses in this life and in eternal life. Praise God this is why Jesus provides 100fold land, houses if old ones destroyed. New earth under God is PERFECT and everybody KNOWS GOD AND WILL WORSHIP HIM ALONE through Christ. No sin or the rebellious dwell in God’s New Lifestyle in Christ. Give God no rest day or night until HE shortens evil days to make Jerusalem the praise of all nations in Jesus Name.

WORLD’S POPULATION DAY

15625069270297355555190290684169.jpgThe world’s version of population day is completely different from God’s version of the “VERY GOOD” world HE created in Genesis 1:28 in the Bible. God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth. Govern and reign over the fish in the sea, birds in sky… with ABUNDANT RESOURCES. God said, be fruitful, multiply and replenish earth but alternative global messages bombards people about over-population birthrate false assumption ideas inciting multicultural racial hatred. Trump leads way pointing accusing fingers at least in society. The global population majority hardly benefits from all God’s over-abundant resources owned by 1% few, while 99% live in abject poverty, barely making it daily in life in this world.         15625096325253658109433286413637.jpgAll resources belong to God for all but is taken over by the few 1%. A third round exploiting post slavery colonialialism is the OZONE tariffs trade driving ethnic minorities from the forest reserves. And those cultures that preserved the forests and climates for centuries like Amazon, Asia, African etc. globally persecuted or deprived from their homes for palm oil, soya, private animal farm tourism. This crisis has imposed Western industrial emissions key causes of global heating. But blame others by projecting a fear of ‘shortage’ of all the world’s resources on “overpopulation by the racially impure.”15625075084226235508155254506775.jpg To add insult to injury their rubbish and toxic wastes are dumped in such places. The West is not willing to change excess consumption lifestyle that is destroying countries at their expense, as it is not in their backyards. Exploiting resources to build the West and marketing processed their natural resources back to them. Majority don’t enjoy superfluous wealth or the global capita gain of wealthy 1% controlling all resources on earth. Sadly their standard of living improves at the higher cost to environment, toxic plastic waste luxury packagings destroying the majority of the world’s flora and fauna.  IMG-20190707-WA0002.jpgThey patronise those they blame, who earn less than 50 cents a day. And many are sterilised by forced family planning or a one child policy. They are blamed for West’s luxury in society propaganda political platforms there is not enough resources, food, available to share with all. Yet Western societies bury billions of tons of good quality foods and clothing, shoes burnt, materials, goods in perfect conditions thrown away everyday. They claim insurance for “loss” like the slave masters paid for loss of earnings from abolition of slave trade. But slaves not compensated for loss of blood, sweat or lives that build the resources in the rich Western countries luxury enjoyed today.20190707_151531.jpgAs Malcom X  once said, “if not careful perpetrators will play all victims against each other and instilling divide and rule hatred in the down trodden to hate each other. Tyrants point accusing fingers at people deprived, exploited daily by the self-serving greedy. Then blame others for lack of resources they freely enjoy and waste. It is travesty those suffering due to greed are victimized as cause of global overpopulation. So large number of population targeted by individualistic drive to force their own ideas on others by any means and at any imposed cost. 15625076575373184392490630184738.jpgReplace the desire to know what is right and what is true but victims hardly live long enough to enjoy lifestyle like them. Calculate the family in upper super rich luxury 1% life’s costs, daily paid for tax payers deprived. You see it’s not size of population but it’s the disproportionate distribution of a lion share of resources taken by 1%. A hundred acre policy to one aristocrat and hundred people put on one acre is minimum land allocated. But blamed lack of land or farmlands to feed families forced off ancestral lands like Ahaz or Jezebel in taking Naboth”s vineyard. World_Population_Day_Pic-700x430.jpgSadly, in God’s plans for mankind a day is coming when HE AS PATENT OWNER TAKES IT ALL BACK. GOD HAS STARTED process, will complete it giving POWER BACK TO JESUS. This is not delusion God is fed up with world PORTRAYING HIM as incapable of providing for people as JEHOVAH JIREH. Humanity failed to live in “VERY GOOD” world God created due to greed. So God is actively demolishing things and will live exclusively with all those willing to abide by HIS standards20190707_151055.jpgSadly God says many people perish for lack of knowledge so this opportunity is being given to all to make wise choices. And nobody brought anything into the world and will take nothing out. Take a look at Tutankhamun’s burial chamber, a pretty good insight of luxury and the futility of mankind to provide for after life. Those golden items didn’t save him to enjoy a lifestyle prepared for in vain. Real after life is already PREPARED FOR BY GOD WITH GOLDEN MANSIONS so no need to worry by taking possessions there. 15625079690203440172905306983793.jpgA few rich people’s disastrous life styles has cost millions of lives but one cannot buy God. So remember when millions of climate refugees exploited in a scorched overpopulated nations seek salvation in other shores it is boomerang, caused by the West. But denies their responsibility to protect the exploited people without strength to fight back. God is DEFENDER of defenceless and OWNS all resources so warning the world of things to come. But ONLY GOD KNOWS EXACT DAY OR HOUR OF HIS WRATH. It is written on that day wealth, status or position will not save stated in Bible in Revelations 19:15. Consider others too while causing these devastations in the whole world.15625090546475682072706855246905.jpgChange before its too late so when Jesus Name comes you will not perish but be saved in eternal life. Read the Bible to educate and teach yourself to know and to make informed choice. God’s plan for humanity is, live a VERY GOOD lifestyle on earth. So stop misinforming ignorant replacement followers misleading them to hate people NOT RESPONSIBLE for all the destruction by the greedy few. These world’s goods belong to God the OWNER causing birthpang warnings shaking the earth. Wake up be saved before too late. 15625085044011216556395911616080.jpgMicah says, “Woe to all those who plan iniquity, to those who plot evil on their beds. In the morning they carry it out because it is in their power to do so. And covet fields, seize houses and take  them to deprive people of their homes, their inheritance. The LORD says: “I AM planning disaster against those people, they cannot save themselves, no longer walk proudly for its time of calamity in Micah 1–3. God says if people repent and call HIS NAME ADONAI JEHOVAH NISSI in Jesus Name, HE WILL hear prayer, forgive and heal the land. So mankind needs to stop the self-destruction victim of own success to seek God’s original VERY GOOD earth supplied with more than all resources provided for Adam and Eve. Greedy desire for more than enough rich resources God provided continues DNA of sinful selfishness. So Jesus will take over all world powers incapable of ruling. The KING OF Kings and LORD of lords Jesus will take over all God’s Kingdom and Rule from Israel at Jerusalem. Material possession must not cause you to gain the whole world to lose your soul. GOD LOVES more than you know and provides equally for all.

NO GOD LIKE JEHOVAH GOD

15617397363302991192506496172112.jpgAn arrogant pompous Nebuchadnezzar tried to put himself above God Almighty to try to dominate the whole world and taunted nations. Nebuchadnezzar, king of Assyrians sent messengers to Persia, and to west, Cilicia, Damascus, Lebanon, Antilebanon seacoast nations, Carmel, Gilead, Upper Galilee and great plain of Esdraelon,  Samaria, Jordan, Jerusalem, Bethany, Chelous, Kadesh, Egypt Valley, Tahpanhes, Raamses, Goshen, Tanis, Memphis, borders of Ethiopia. They  all rejected an order of Nebuchadnezzar to join him in war, not afraid of him as he is only one man. All sent the messengers back empty-handed. Nebuchadnezzar angry, swore by his throne and kingdom he will take revenge on all inhabitants, land of Moab, people of Ammon, Judea, Egypt, two seas coasts. He attacks King Arphaxad in battle, defeated his army, cavalry, chariots, took towns, Ecbatana, captured towers, plundered markets. In mountains of Ragau struck Axpharxes with his spears and returned to Nineveh to rest, feasts one hundred twenty days.  Nebuchadnezzar told Holofernes, chief general of his army, “he is the great king lord of the whole earth so he must take strong confident men about a hundred twenty thousand foot soldiers, twelve thousand cavalry to attack surrounding nations. To match into all the land west because they refused to become vassal states. To prepare their land and water as coming in anger to attack them and to cover whole face of earth with the feet of his troops to plunder the nations. 1561739274546159975644533714699.jpgTo wound and fill ravines, gullies, and swelling river with their dead, or taken captives to the ends of the whole earth. To seize territory for Nebuchadnezzar in advance. They must yield themselves and hold on till the day of punishment. All who resist show no mercy, slaughter and plunder whole region by power of his kingdom. To do so by his authority as commanded to carry out order given without delay.  Nebuchadnezzar’s army attacked and plundered and planned next move but warned by Achior not to attack Israel. Holofernes left and took commanders, generals and officers of Assyrian army. One hundred twenty thousand, twelve thousand archers on horseback a great army for a campaign. A vast number of camels and donkeys, mules transport, sheep, oxen, goats for food, and huge amount of gold and silver from royal palace. Set out with whole army ahead of Nebuchadnezzar to cover whole face of earth west with chariots, cavalry, foot soldiers, mixed crowd like swarm of locusts, like dust of earth with countless multitude marched in three days from Nineveh to plain of Bectileth. Camped opposite Bectileth near mountain north of Upper Cilicia. Holofernes and army, ravaged Put, Lud plundered Rassisites, Ishmaelites on border desert south of Chelleans. They follow the Euphrates river through to Mesopotamia and destroyed all fortified towns along brook Abron near the sea. Seized territory of Cilicia, to southern borders of Japheth by Arabia. Surround Midianites, burnt their tents, plundered their sheepfolds. To plain of Damascus during their wheat harvest and burnt fields destroyed flocks, herds, ransacked towns, ravaged lands and young men to sword. Achior is tied to tree for warning Holofernes not to attack Israel is saved.  15617441065346643787622518134387.jpgFear and dread fell on the other people along seacoast of Sidon and Tyre, Sur, Ocina, Jamnia, Azotus and Ascalon who feared Holofernes greatly. The seacoast people and all countryside welcomed him with garlands, dances, tambourines but he demolished all shrines, cut down sacred groves; for he was commissioned to destroy gods of the land so all nations should worship Nebuchadnezzar alone, and all nations and all tribes should call him their god. So he  went to Esdraelon, near the Dothan great ridge of Judea to camp between Geba and Scythopolis for a whole month to collect all supplies for his army. Israelites in Judea heard of Holofernes, and greatly terrified at his approach alarmed for Jerusalem and Temple of the LORD God. They recently returned from exile, gathered together the sacred vessels, altar and the temple consecrated after profanation. So they sent word to districts Samaria, to Kona, Beth-horon, Belmain, Jericho, Choba, Aesora, and valley of Salem. They seized all high hilltops and fortified villages on them and stored food in preparation for war since fields were harvested. Then the high priest Joakim in Jerusalem at the time wrote to people of Bethulia and Betomesthaim, near Esdraelon opposite plain near Dothan to seize the mountain passes, since Judea could be invaded.20190629_115220.jpgImmediately it was easy to stop anyone who tried to enter, for space too narrow and only two can pass. The Israelites did as ordered by high priest Joakim and the senate of Israel in Jerusalem. Every one Israel cried out to God, humbled themselves with fasting to God. Their wives, children, cattle all resident  put sackcloth and prostrated themselves before the temple. They put ashes on their heads, spread sackcloth before the LORD. They draped altar with sackcloth and cried out, praying to God of Israel not to let infants be carried off and their wives taken booty or towns inherited be destroyed, and sanctuary profaned and desecrated by malicious Gentiles. The Lord heard their prayers so had regard for their distress. People fasted so many days in Judea and Jerusalem before the Sanctuary of the LORD Almighty. The high priest Joakim and the priests stood before the Lord and ministered to the LORD in sackcloth, offered burnt, votive or freewill offerings of the people. With ashes on heads cried out to the LORD to have mercy on whole house of Israel. And reports went to Holofernes about Israel fasting and praying to God to be saved from their attacks. Achior the Ammonite said Israel descended from Chaldeans from  Mesopotamia because they did not wish to follow the gods of ancestors in Chaldea. So abandoned the ways of their ancestors and worshiped the God of heaven their ancestors drove them from gods so fled to Mesopotamia, and lived there for a long time. God told them to go to the land of Canaan. They settled and grew prosperous in gold and silver and livestock. Famine in the land of Canaan led them to Egypt and a great multitude their race couldn’t be counted so the king of Egypt hostile to them; and exploited and forced them made bricks.  20190629_120841.jpgThey cried to God who afflicted whole Egypt with plagues so Egyptians drove them out. God dried the Red Sea before them and led them by the way of Sinai and Kadesh-barnea. Drove out people of the desert and resided in the land of the Amorites, destroyed all inhabitants of Heshbon; crossed Jordan and possessed all the hill country of Canaanites, the Perizzites, Jebusites, Shechemites, the Gergesites and lived there long time.  As long as Israel did not sin against God they prospered for God hates iniquity so us with them. When they departed from Godsway prescribed for them they were defeated in battles and led captives to a foreign land. So temple of their God was razed to the ground, the towns occupied by their enemies. Now they returned to God from those places scattered back to Jerusalem their sanctuary and settled in the hill country uninhabited. So now my master and lord if there is any oversight in this people and they sin against their God and we find out their offense, then we can go up and defeat them. But if not a guilty nation let my lord pass them by; for their LORD their God defends them so we shall become laughingstock of the whole world. Achior’s prophesy not to fight against Israel because God defends them against god of Nebuchadnezzar is ignored, send his forces to destroy them from the face of the earth. Boasted God will not save them as the king’s servants will destroy them as one man. They will not resist the might of their cavalry. So will overwhelm them in the mountains drunk with their blood and fields full of their dead. Their footprints will  perish because Nebuchadnezzar is lord of the whole earth. For he has spoken so none of his words will be in vain.      1561744175787866321449037877523.jpg15616518397595817309882380670391.jpgAchior, thrown out to hill country and into the town by passes to perish along with Israel. Holofernes spoke that none of his words will fail to come true. Tied Achior to a tree buy saved by Israelites told Israel about plans if their enemies. The people fell down and worshipped God and cried, O Lord God of heaven, see their arrogance, and have pity on our people in humility and look kindly on faces of those who are consecrated to you. They reassured Achior and praised him highly. Uzziah took him from the assembly to his own house and gave a banquet for the elders and all night they called on the God of Israel for help. All the people, young men and women, and children, gathered around Uzziah and rulers of the town cried out with a loud voiceYou did great injury not making peace with the Assyrians. We have none to help us; God sold us into their hands, to be thirsty and exhausted. Summon them and surrender the whole town as booty to the army of Holofernes and to all his forces. It is better to be captured slaves, our lives spared, and not witness our little ones dying before our eyes or our wives and children dying. We call heaven, earth and God to our LORD God so prefer to be slaves not defeated.  The great lamentation in the assembly and cries to the LORD God with a loud voice, Uzziah said, “Courage, brothers and sisters let us wait five days if LORD God will turn His mercy to us again for He will not forsake us. If these days pass with no help I will do as you say. All the men went up on the walls and towers of their town. Women and children he sent home in great misery.

And when Judith heard it, called rulers of the people said  its not right; you swore an oath between God and you to surrender the town to enemies if the LORD does not help in so many days. Who are you to put God to test to set time for God in human affairs do not make LORD our God angry. If he does not choose to help within five days, He has power to protect as He pleases, or destroy in presence of enemies. Don’t try to control purposes of LORD God not like humans won over by pleading. Wait for His deliverance let us call upon Him to help us, and He will hear our voice, if it pleases Him. Tribes that worship God know no other god but Him, so we trust  He will not deny our nation. If captured all Judea and sanctuary plundered pays for desecration by blood of slaughtered kindred, land desolate of inheritance He will bring Gentiles to serve as slaves but the Lord God will honour us. Remember Abraham, Isaac and Jacob all tested. In Syrian Mesopotamia, tending the sheep of Laban his mother’s brother Jacob overcame. God didn’t try us with fire as he did to them to search their hearts, nor taken vengeance on us; but the LORD scourges all those close to Him in order to refine them. Uzziah said “All you said is true the people so thirsty compelled us to do what we promised by oath we cannot break. Since you are a God-fearing woman, pray for us, so the LORD to send rain to fill our cisterns so we no longer feel faint from thirst. So  Judith said, “I will do something that will go down through all generations of our descendants. Stand at the town gate tonight so I may go out with my maid; within days you promised to surrender the town to our enemies, the LORD will deliver Israel by my hand. Do not try to find out what I will do for I will not tell you until I finish what I am going to do. 20190628_171454.jpgAnd Judith prostrated herself, put ashes on her head, uncovered sackcloth she was wearing. At the very time when the evening incense was being offered in the house of God in Jerusalem. Judith cried out to the LORD with a loud voice and said, LORD God take revenge on strangers who tore virgin’s clothing to defile, expose to shame, pollute their womb to disgrace. You gave rulers to be killed and their beds shamed by deceits practiced stain with blood, struck slaves and princes on thrones. You gave their wives, daughters into captivity and all booty divided. Your beloved children call on you for help O God hear widow. Only you know your ways in advance.  Assyrians increase force, proud of their horses, riders, boast in strength of their foot soldiers, trust in shield and spear, bow and sling. They do not know you are the LORD God who crushes wars the LORD God Jehovah Almighty is your Name. Break their strength by your MIGHT and bring down their power in your anger, they defile sanctuary and pollute tabernacle of your Glory, break off horns of altar by sword look at their pride send your wrath on their heads. Give to me a widow, strong hand to do what I plan. By deceit of my lips strike them down and crush their arrogance by hand of woman. Your Strength does not depend on numbers your MIGHT is Powerful. You are the God of the lowly, helper of oppressed, upholder of weak, protector of forsaken, saviour of those without hope. Please, God of my father, God of Israel, LORD of heaven and earth, Creator of the waters, King of all creation hear prayers. Bruise those who plan evil things against your Covenant, and your Sacred House Mount Zion to save your Children and whole nation.15617553231208943109341464692905.jpg 15617389135408040223822512201730.jpgIMG-20190627-WA0012.jpg077b8d2568aab814da8605d9be703a3f.jpgLet tribes know and understand you are God of all Power and might and there is no other God who Protects the people of Israel but you Alone. Judith embarks on her secret seductive mission to destroy the plans of Holofernes. Judith gets him too drunk for intimacy decapitates head to defeat Nebuchadnezzar army. Judith is celebrated as a Jewish woman who saved her people from the tyranny of Holofernes. Achior becomes proselyte in the house of Israel because of his true testimony of God and he risked his life to save Israel. So God let Achior into the house of Israel used by God to stop the destruction of Israel by Holofernes.  A pagan Ammonite and chief leaders of all the Ammonites had wisdom and knowledge so understands the authority and power of Jehovah. He narrated the history of Israel and their victory won through Almighty God. So a vassal state citizen is used here to warn Holofernes who rejected good advise. It is God who decides those worthy of His salvation among the Gentiles. Achior is converted in the light of God as other righteous Gentiles of the bible. Achior is a genuine convert who witnessed the miracle power of God’s Divine move to save Israel through Judith a God fearing widow. God allows time of the Gentile to precede Israelites to provoke them to jealousy. Achior is symbolic invitation to all nations to convert for all the gentiles are included in the grand scheme plans of God to come to faith in God of Israel.

MESSIAH JESUS IN ISAIAH 53

1559054934144-685165869.jpgIsaiah 53:1 says, “Who believes our report and to whom is Arm of the LORD revealed?” 2 He shall grow up before HIM as a tender plant root from the dry ground with no form or comeliness. So see Him of no beauty to desire Him 3 He is despised and rejected of men as man of sorrows acquainted with grief. So hid our faces from Him as He was despised and not esteemed. 4 He bore our griefs and our sorrows. 5 He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities, the chastisement of our peace was upon Him and by His stripes we are healed. 6 We all like sheep have gone astray and turned on our way; the LORD laid on Him iniquity of our sins. 7 He was oppressed and afflicted yet He opened not His mouth: He was brought as a Lamb to the slaughter or like sheep but did not open His Mouth. 8 He was afflicted for us but who is declaring Him to His generation? He was cut off from the land of the living for transgressions of my people was he stricken. 9 He was in the grave with the wicked and rich in death but did no evil with no deceit in His Mouth. 10 The LORD bruised Him and put Him to grief and made His Soul the offering for sin. HE sees HIS Seed raised after days as the LORD allowed in HIS HANDS. 11 HE sees travail of His Soul and His knowledge as a Righteous Servant justifies Him to bear iniquities. 12 His Portion is GREAT to Spoil spoilers and strong because He poured His Soul to death. He was with transgressors and bore our sin making intercession for us.15590550966781518400173.jpgDeclare to all generations He was cut off from the land of the living for the sake of the transgressions of MY PEOPLE and whipped. Isaiah 52:13-53:12 is about the Servant Song Book of Isaiah on Jesus the “Righteous Servant” of God. The Son of God came not to be served but to Serve and Give His Life as a ransom for many. All who believe and receive Jesus are Children of God. YAHWEH said, MY PEOPLE perish for lack knowledge and understanding so study Bible to learn. Isaiah 53 represents Jesus the Messiah and the Saviour to all nations sent by God to REDEEM sinners to restore them back to God. Jesus took on Him the punishment of all nations so all who accept Jesus Christ belong to God. Jesus a Jew from Israel is Chosen by God together with Israel who bears pogroms and suffering in Isaiah 52:4 on behalf of all others in Isaiah 53:7,11–12. Jesus is highly exalted by God to nations and kings in Isaiah 52:15 to repent for “He GAVE His Soul to death to save us.” Individuals are to follow Jesus Christ so personally saved and also nations as a whole. Christ SACRIFICED His Life as the Messiah for personal salvation. God commanded Philip to teach Ethiopian eunuch sitting in chariot, reading Book of Isaiah about Jesus. The eunuch didn’t understand what he read so Philip helps to explain to him its teachings on Jesus. The eunuch asked Philip, who was this prophet in Isaiah 53? Philip opens same scripture to preach to Eunuch about the Messiah Jesus Christ. Christians believe report Jesus is Messiah in Isaiah 53:1 so “the Arm of the LORD is revealed.” The Ethiopian Eunuch believed so baptised immediately by Phillip. The Jews and Gentiles are forgiven by Jesus on Cross because all have sinned and fallen short of the GLORY of God. All mankind’s sins are forgiven so nobody is to be blamed or hated for the crucifixion of Jesus. In Jeremiah 31:23, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel they shall use this speech in the land of Judah and in cities when I bring them from captivity; The LORD bless you O home of justice and mountain of holiness. Israel is restored after 4,000 years as a nation with own language spoken and written again. This miracle never happened in history before shows recreation by God of the world to come. As Israel is restored to original nation so God restores earth.1559055403778-685165869.jpgBut many others, despite Jesus’ signs and miracles do not believe Jesus is the Word made Flesh to dwell among us in 1 John 1:1, as Isaiah also prophecied. So not all obey the GOSPELS as Romans 10:16 said. And Isaiah 53:1 said, not all will believe the GOSPEL report although Jesus fulfilled Isaiah 53. The Arm of the LORD is a metaphor for YAHWEH’S activities in living history. Isaiah 53:4 is quoted in Matthew 8:17 as Jesus heals people in Christian ministry fulfilling what Isaiah said “He Himself took our infirmities and bore our sicknesses and by His stripes we are healed.” God gave Jesus as atonement for all sin to redeem mankind from separation from God. So the Gospel made available to share with all who choose to listen and be saved. A timeline is set by God to share GOSPEL until the time of the Gentiles ends. Only God knows exact time is so important to accept Jesus to be saved. Opportunities are given to all to decide to accept Jesus and have Eternal Life. Or join those who refuse to believe Gospel Reports of the testimony of Jesus salvation and so face the consequences of God’s WRATH and Jesus’ With to come upon the earth. The News is full of ongoing warnings of the Arm of God to alert mankind to repent. Why gain the whole world and lose your soul? Be persuaded not death or life or angels or principalities or powers or things present or things to come or height or depth or any other creature can separate us from the LOVE of God, in Christ Jesus our Lord says Roman 8:38:39. The GREATEST GIFT from God is GIFT of ETERNAL LIFE through Jesus Christ. All you need to do is to accept Jesus, repent confess your sins to God and follow Jesus as your personal Saviour. It is a fearful thing to Fall into the HANDS of the LIVING God YAHWEH by rejecting Jesus Christ as your Lord.   

 

JERUSALEM THRONE OF GOD

1558698009471-2036304377.jpgJERUSALEM is the THRONE of the LORD and ALL Nations will gather there to the NAME of the LORD and so walk no more after imagination of their evil heart says Jeremiah 3:17. Jesus, Israel’s NEW KING since the last king Zedekiah over 2500 years ago rules YAHWEH’S KINGDOM as HIS appointed KING. Jesus will RULE GOD’S KINGDOM in Luke 1:31-33 as the GREATEST KING. The LORD GOD YAHWEH gave Jesus Throne of Israel from David and His Kingdom has no end. David said the LORD God told his Lord Jesus in Psalm 110:1, Matthew 22:44, Mark 12:36, Luke 20:42, Peter Acts 2:34 His enemies are under His Feet in Kingdom of Jesus on earth as Christ the Saviour Redeemer of Israel. Christ is David’s Lord over House of Israel, LORD God Authorized as KING Jesus, Superceding King David, Sitting at the Right Hand of God, puts all enemies under Jesus’ Feet as King David foretold. Revelations 1:15 says “as seventh angel sounds, great voices in heaven will say, The kingdoms of this world become the Kingdom of our LORD God and Christ shall Reign Forever and Ever. Jesus will come back from heaven as KING in Acts 1:11 … “This Jesus taken to heaven will come in same way you saw him go to heaven.” KING Jesus will rule over Israel and all people on earth says Zechariah 14:9, The Lord shall be KING over all earth in that day there will be ONE Lord and His Name is Jesus. The KINGDOM of God Supercedes and destroys all existing governments. Jesus will RULE all people on earth as subjects of GOD in ETERNAL LIFE. 1 Kings 10:9 says God gave Throne of Israel to King David to rule HIS people. 2 Chronicles 6:6 says God CHOSE JERUSALEM City of all nations on earth to DWELL in. David honoured GOD’S CHOICE JERUSALEM to establish God’s Capital in Israel 3000 years ago due to perfect central location.15586986310501559442597.jpgDaniel 2:44 says “in days of these kings God of heaven set up HIS KINGDOM and shall never be destroyed. HIS KINGDOM will break in pieces all other kingdoms, and stand for ever. The Kingdom of God will enforce GOD’S System of justice in the world and all people follow the laws of Christ Micah 4:2, Many Nations shall say, Come and let us go to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the GOD of Jacob and HE WILL teach us HIS ways so we will walk in HIS path for the law from Zion is the WORD of the Lord from Jerusalem. Saints rule under King Jesus Christ, reign with Him and enforce laws teaching people as Revelations 2:26-27, he who overcomes and keeps My works to the end given POWER over nations to Rule them with a rod of iron to break in pieces as Jesus received of Father God. Revelations 5:10 says, God’s Kings and Priests Reign with Christ on earth. So all people required to go to Jerusalem each year to worship King Jesus as stated in Zechariah 14:16. “It shall come to pass those left of nations against Jerusalem shall go year to year to worship THE KING LORD of hosts to keep the feast of tabernacles.” Those who refuse to do so will have no rain on their lands. David wrote of his hope in resurrection from death so prophesied Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection. David’s Old Testament prophecy foretold death of Christ and of His Glory in 1 Peter 1:11. Peter said in sermon on Day of Pentecost this passage from Psalm 16: “Men and brethren, the patriarch David knew God swore oath his body will rise to see Christ to sit on His Throne. After resurrection Christ’s Soul was not left in Hades or His flesh decayed in Acts 2:29-31. Peter said David awaits resurrection in Jesus Christ the Resurrected Messiah KING his Lord. As King David was proved right about the Resurrection of Jesus so is Jesus’ Reign imminent in Israel as God planned. 15587124616321559442597.jpgNew Temple built in Jerusalem for Jesus Christ’s return to the earth says Ezekiel 40 – 47 to worship God under King Jesus Prince of peace. All the people on earth will KNOW and serve GOD’S KINGDOM on earth. Jesus Christ overthrows all the human governments to establish GOD’S Authority over all the earth. Acts 3:20-21 says God WILL send Lord Jesus Christ, preached to you back from heaven after time of restitution of things God spoke of by the mouth of HIS Holy prophets since world began. All people on earth will be taught word of God as Habakkuk 2:14 says the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the GLORY of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea. This change is ongoing until the final moment when God sets up His Kingdom in Jerusalem. KING David established JERUSALEM as capital of Israel 3000 years ago and God is taking back his Capital City on earth. Make sure you include yourself in God’s FREEWILL CHOICE given all people to make up their own minds. People come into the world as inviduals and face God as individuals so be sure to belong to YAHWEH’S KINGDOM. The whole world belongs exclusively to God so HE is exercising HIS POWER and Authority after 6000 years of HIS patience and HIS tolerance, reclaiming the world LIVING on HIS borrowed time of MERCY, GRACE, FORGIVENESS in Christ Jesus. Zechariah 8:3 says, the LORD returned to Zion and will DWELL in JERUSALEM GOD’S City and Mountain of the LORD of hosts. Glory, Glory, Glory to the Lamb upon the Throne, Messiah Jesus Christ.

IS SUFFERING GOD’S FAULT?

15583726787191346803934-1.jpgIs suffering God’s fault for not stopping pain with HIS Powerful Authority over all things? This question causes people to denounce God and turn their backs on the word of God. Despair over many unanswered questions affects people of faith so Jesus asked His disciples if they want to quit too. They answered there is nowhere else to go because Jesus has the word of eternal life in John 6:60-71. The Words of Eternal Life Jesus said to the twelve disciples, “Do you want to go away as well?” Simon Peter answered Him, “Lord, to whom shall we go, You have the WORDS of ETERNAL life.” This is CORE TRUTH of Christianity, so focus extends beyond life in the here and now into infinity. Like the disciples so many people want a PERFECT world without pain or sorrow so disappointed when it is beyond their control to stop suffering. They turn on God to stop and if nothing happens become vexed and angry with God for not answering their prayers. It is important to stop and first reflect the reality of circumstances all the way to the roots of the problems. Whatever the situation was God consulted before the onset of situation or consequences, risks analyzed in line with the word of God to confront God for events? All who truly understand the WILL of God HIS PLANS and Purpose know they are Higher than man’s thoughts so are not always fully predictable. Shock of inability to control decisions by God makes them feel hurt, helpless, out of control for sufferings. 15583732225621921606918-1.jpgAngry God is unreliable or failed them, badmouth God instead of checking what went wrong. So discouragement makes many abandon God when the cares of this world test their faith. Unlike those prophets who resort to false visions to keep their followers Jesus warned His disciples the going will be tough so they must be tough to get going by faith and endure to the end in Jesus Name. These WORDS of ETERNAL life mean soldiers of Christ know what they signed up for in the course of their duty in God’s call to defend their faith. Prophet Jeremiah experienced similar moments of ups and downs wavering in faith when his messages did not happen immediately as people expected. He declared people will be freed from captivity and return to their homeland as God PROMISED so expected instant result. They turned on God’s messenger so put him in a well to die in Egypt but Ebed-Melech an eunuch from Ethiopia saved his life granted the permission by King Zedekiah. Jeremiah PROPHECY comes to pass Israel nation is building houses, planting vineyards as he did by buying land in Anathoth. Jeremiah lived in old Assyrian empire but in two centuries it declined so fell. Its capital, Nineveh captured in 612 by Babylonians, Medes and Egypt briefly under 26th dynasty (664–525) not strong enough an empire. Nebuchadnezzar made Judah vassal of Assyria when God calls him to prophesy. He said he didn’t know how to speak because he was far too young so received Yahweh WORDS in his mouth and made a “prophet to the Nations.” His messages to the people condemns false worship, social injustice asking them to repent. He proclaimed 7th century Josiah’s reform purification of worship from pagan practices for all sacrificial rites in Temple of Jerusalem to establish social justice reforms in Jeremiah 11. Yahweh wants total loyalty to Covenant of Judea and inhabitants of Jerusalem. No reform made Jeremiah disillusioned because people dealt with externals of religion not inner spirit and ethical conduct. Jeremiah 7:1-15 and 26:1- 24, denounced people depending on Temple security so calls for genuine ethical reform. He predicted God would destroy Temple of Jerusalem like Shiloh, if they continued on that path. Jeremiah banned from Temple for God’s Justice, righteousness denounced selfishness, materialism and social injustice. Spoke against Egypt to his scribe, Baruch scroll message read cut into pieces and burnt. 15583735384841713680762.jpgJeremiah wrote another scroll, so added warning Judah to be destroyed at hands of Nebuchadnezzar’s army besieging Jerusalem. Babylonians put on throne of Judah, Zedekiah (597–586 BCE) followed Jeremiah’s counsel paying Babylonians tribute 10 years had alliance with Egypt. And Nebuchadnezzar’s army captured Jerusalem again in August 586 Yahweh allowed king of Babylonian. Jeremiah’s message to submit to yoke of Babylonia but on way to land of tribe of Benjamin, charged with desertion, in pit saved by prompt action of the Ethiopian eunuch Ebed-melech. Jerusalem fell, Jeremiah promised people bright joyful FUTURE but continued to rebuke fellow countrymen in exile in Egypt. Loyal to prophetic call suffered inner doubts and conflicts in confessions in Jereremiah: 11:18–12:6; 15:10–21; 17:9–10, 14–18; 18:18–23; 20:7–12, 14–18. Jeremiah’s conflict between his deep sense of duty, delivers Yahweh’s message to people. In Jeremiah’s despondent expressions he called God “a deceitful brook. . . waters that fail God deceived and overpowered him.” Yet exalts God: “Your WORDS give me joy and delight my heart so Yahweh is a “dread warrior” fighting by his side. Jeremiah pronounced God’s judgment on the people for their wickedness, false insincere worship and failure to trust in Yahweh on national affairs. He said sin is a weakness and stubbornness of evil heart, some foreign nations more loyal to pagan false deities than Judah was to Yahweh real God by their disobedience to God. Jeremiah spoke on Repentance than any other prophet calls on men to turn away from their wicked ways not depend on idols, false gods and return to their Covenant by loyalty to Yahweh. To repent and live in obedience to Yahweh’s will individually or as nations. Jeremiah, despite despair gives HOPE for the future said, “Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, Houses, fields, vineyards shall again be bought in this land,” is his prophetic future of New Covenant in Jeremiah 31:31–34.

1558372979931-1264398575.jpgJeremiah suffered but he continued to prophesy Yahweh’s New Covenant to Israel will fulfill old Mosaic Covenant so Yahweh will write HIS law on the hearts of men to know God directly to receive HIS FORGIVENESS. This New Covenant prophecy in New Testament is through Jesus’ BLOOD. Though Israel is punished so many times for idolatory, GOD’S LOVE is forever. When the Ark was captured in 1 Samuel 4:22, God’s Glory exiled from Israel to Philistine to save Israel from exile. Yahweh broke curse of Covenants for HIS people and defeated gods of Philistia by plague of Ashdod in 1 Samuel 5 and 6. Philistines moved Ark, tumours or hemorrhoids (emerods) afflicted people in towns of: Ashdod, Gath, Ekron. Septuagint says mice in country punishment increased tumours in Ashdod (vv. 6-8), tumours and panic in Gath by Ark (vv. 9,10a), tumours, panic in Ekron (vv. 10b-12). Plagues caused by “Yahweh’s hand” in 1Samuel 5:6 Ashdod put Ark in temple of Dagon statue found prostates in front of Ark next morning. The statue of Dagon put in place again prostrates next morning with head and hands broken off. Philistine captivity of Ark brought plagues, humiliated gods of Philistines is returned of full treasure to Israel. Philistines like 1 Samuel 6:6 ends plagues by guilt offering of five golden tumours and five gold mice of the five Philistine rulers. The Ark stops at Beth Shemesh before a permanent home at Kiriath-Jearim. The righteous may fall 7 or more times but GOD RESTORES for HIS NAME SAKE. Jeremiah’s MESSAGE to all Nations is no matter what Israel’s sin GOD RESTORES them for HIS GLORY to prove to all who believe, HE IS LOVE. HE FORGIVES ALL SINNERS JUST AS HE FORGIVES ISRAEL. The Dagon nations God used to punish Israel are destroyed by God and so must repent too in Jesus Name. Despite his sufferings Jeremiah’s PROPHECY continues daily to come into existence by GOD’S POWER. Jeremiah encourages the people to call directly on God in Jeremiah 33:3 as He will answer them. The question is will their requests be in line with God’s Words? What will be their response if God says wait, not now or no will they endure suffering to the end? God’s words says the sufferings of this world is nothing compared to what the LORD has for those who LOVE HIM. Phillipians 1:27 as one believes in Christ so one becomes a partaker of his suffering with great rewards in Jesus Name.
