God’s Ark triumphs 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.God 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. God 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 a tribe for my servant David’s sake and the sake of JERUSALEM THE CITY I CHOSE.”God LOVES Solomon but hates idolatry and punished him. Elijah killed Jezebel’s 400 baal prophets to help restore Godly 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.
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.In 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. They 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 statue fell from heaven…. They are not temple robber blasphemer of gods so in danger being charged rioting, dismissed assembly. Today convincing nations idol worshippers of their false gods not well received to be saved by Jesus eternally. Stirs up anger and false charges so they left. Baby Jesus in Egypt records testify that townsfolk infuriated when stone statue of an idol cracked and fell evicted the Holy Family from the town. In Egypt Tal-Basta – or Basta Jesus caused spring from ground and His Presence triggered idols to crumble. The townsfolk in anger turned aggressive, Holy Family turned their backs on town heads southwards to Mostorod. History record incident dating devastation of Qussqam. Coptic tradition says town ruin as consequence of violent rejection of the Holy Family of Jesus in their escape to Egypt.The Governor of Fustat enraged their idols fell at Jesus’ approach sought to kill the Child. Took shelter in the cave Church of Abu Serga St. Sergius is built. Others welcome holy refugees received at Meir or Meira town seven miles west of Qoussia. Hospitality of town people is abundantly blessed. Revelations 6 says people who receive Christ will be saved but all others who reject God’s Spirit filled Christian Gospel message will perish. Believers ordained to go into all the world to preach Gospel, Some seeds fall on good fertile ground 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 spiritual eyes to see to 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 Blood of Jesus like Gideon, Hezekiah, Manasseh build NEW ALTAR to living God. Let deliverance ministers deal with idol gods don’t do so yourself. Put on whole armour of God and cover yourself with Jesus blood and worship the Only One True God.God instructs HIS people to drive out all the inhabitants of Land of Israel as they settle down. HE warned them: “If you do not drive out inhabitants of land from you, those you let remain shall be irritants in your eyes and thorns in your sides to harass you in land you dwell in” in Numbers 33:55. The Israelites crossed Jordan made treaties allows Canaanites to dwell among them. They continued practicing their pagan rituals, led them into pagan practices and their attacks. God cares for strangers or refugees with love and friendliness. The alien residing in land not to be oppressed but treated as citizens as you love yourself, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt,” in Leviticus 19:33-34;20:24-26. Acts 17:26-27 says God let all nations inhabit whole earth allotted by boundary places to live as Leviticus states God separated people of Israel from others ordered them not to mix to train them ROLE MODELS to all nations. The Christian Church in the world does not belong to world so is set apart for God’s Christian community for Children of God’s Kingdom. The Church community in the world interacts with fellow human beings outside Church. Agape love open hearts and gentleness kindness in Bible account helps people on the move, strangers, immigrants and refugees without a home in 1 Peter 2:9, John 17:16, Philippians 4:5. God justifies Israel training them ROLE MODELS not by racism or culture, gender for there is no Jew, Gentiles, slaves nor free in God’s Kingdom. ALL WHO DO WILL OF GOD SO OBEY HIS COMMANDS HE LOVES IN HIS ETERNAL PRESENCE. Those who reject God’s Grand plans for mankind HE ELIMINATES by WRATH.

After 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.God 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. Mankind 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. So 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. 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.Christ fulfilled prophecies and He took our place to receive penalty of our sins. His Second Coming defeats sin eternally. Before Jesus’ Second Coming is he whole world is filled with wonder follows the beast. 4 People worship dragon for giving the authority to the beast and boasting ask, “Who is like the beast? Who can wage war against it. 5 The beast has mouth to say proud words and to blaspheme with authority for forty-two months. 6 Opens mouth to blaspheme God, slander HIS NAME and HIS dwelling place and those in heaven.7 Given power he wages war against God’s Holy people and controls them. Has authority over tribes, people, languages, nations. 8 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.”In 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 9:27; Daniel 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. Theologians 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. “I am sending you prophet Elijah before the coming of the great and awesome day of God says Malachi 4:5. God’s promises to raise up prophet Moses in Deuteronomy 18: 15, 18. The Jews believe Moses will return as one of two witnesses. Despite their powerful testimonies beast will overcome them and kill them in war. The 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.Led 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,8 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. Revelation 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.
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. Seas 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 and Jesus rules forever. HE who scattered Israel will gather them and will watch over HIS flock like Shepherd. The LORD delivers Israel and redeems them from hand of those stronger than them says Jeremiah 31:10–11. 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. The 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 to heaven. 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. Some 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 coming to Mount Zion to judge nations and His Kingdom is JEHOVAH’S.” Bible prophecy on Third Temple in Jeremiah 33 says: “The days are coming,’ declares the LORD, ‘I will fulfil the word spoken about houses of Israel and Judah so a righteous Branch of David spring forth to execute justice and righteousness on earth. Judah and Jerusalem dwell safely called LORD our righteousness. ‘David shall never lack man to sit on throne of HOUSE of Israel or Levitical priest lack man before ME. I CHOSE to Consecrate MY Temple, MY NAME is there Forever, MY EYES and MY HEART always there Jehovah God says in 2 Chronicles 7:16. The Bible says The Third Temple is built in Israel in Daniel 9:72 as covenant after sacrifice, grain offering was stopped by antiChrist abomination desolations and destruction. Third Temple in Amos 9:11 says “On that day I will restore David’s fallen shelter and repair broken walls, restore ruins and rebuild.” Isaiah 2:2-3 says: “In the last days mountain of the LORD’S Temple will be established at highest mountain exalted above hills and all nations will come and say, Come, let us go to the mountain of the LORD, to TEMPLE of the GOD of Jacob. HE will teach us his ways to walk in HIS paths.’ The law will go out from Zion, the word of the LORD from Jerusalem to all the nations.” The Bible says after 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 the 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. Temple is the central governing place 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 Zephaniah’s son. Take silver, gold, make crown and set it on head of high priest Joshua son of Jehozadak. Tell him LORD Almighty says: ‘Here is the man the branch to build Temple of LORD God Jehovah. I am with you says the LORD to save you and make full end of all nations scattered to but not make complete end of Israel in Jeremiah 30:11. God uses Sun scorching heatwaves and the flushfloods, landslides, muds, heavy rains, hailstones, tsunamis, earthquakes, lightning, and volcanoes to destroy God’s enemies, one third of earth and trees. Constant heavy rains trigger earthquakes when huge downpours of the rain triggers earthquakes in landscapes riddled with caves, channels, increasing pressure and underlying rock’s volcano lava flows. God’s Covenant promise to offsprings of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob-Israel first, then to all nations “Thus says the LORD God, who gives Sun for day light, moon and stars for light by night, who controls sea and waves roar, The LORD of Hosts is HIS NAME. ‘If sun, moon, stars, depart from earth, says the LORD, ‘then seed of Israel shall cease as a nation before ME forever says Jeremiah 31:35–36. So God blessed Jewish people as secure as sun, moon, stars. God made Israel’s survival and ultimate salvation secured and all Israel shall be saved. Psalm 83 prophesy says a last day’s confederacy intends to wipe out name of Israel forever. They take crafty counsel against God’s people and consult and said, ‘Come, and let us cut them off as nation so name of Israel remembered no more in Psalm 83:3–4. Israel is protected faithfully not turning away from God. If Israel does not join Baal of Peor anger of the LORD is not aroused against Israel in Numbers 25:3. God’s chosen people worship the pagan gods enrage God resulting in plague that killed 24,000. Balaam’s evil advise to the Midianites ruined Israel seduced by the women in Numbers 31:7–16. Yet God’s LOVE Covenant to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob-Israel is eternally nonegotiable. He 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. God’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, prophets, Christ Jesus Himself as the Chief cornerstone. In Him whole building joined together one 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 gathers Jews, remnant, lost tribes back to the Land of Israel in Isaiah 43:5-6 forever and ever. Jesus restores all mankind saved to Father God. Jesus 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.
JERUSALEM 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.Daniel 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. New 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.
Moses saw a burning bush that did not burn the trees. God tells Moses to take shoes off on Holy ground. After God appeared to Moses in the burning bush HE told him to return to Egypt to rescue Israelite slaves because their cries came up to God. Moses said to God, if they ask for a name of God of fathers what should I tell them?” God said tell them, “I AM WHO I AM.
Exodus 4:3-4. God instructs Moses to go to the king of Egypt for Israel freedom. Moses said, “What if they do not believe the LORD appeared to me God performs two miracles with Moses’ staff and hand
The LORD said to Moses, Stretch your hand and grap it by tail so he stretched his hand and caught it and it became a staff in his hand.
The LORD said to him put your hand into your bosom.” So he put his hand into his bosom, and when he took it out, his hand was leprous like snow and the hand leprous back to original form. The Lord told Moses to turn water from the river into blood as a sign.
Then He said, “Put your hand into your bosom again.” So he put his hand into his bosom again, and when he took it out of his bosom, behold, it was restored like the rest of his flesh. LORD I am not a good speaker or eloquent I am slow of speech. God reassured Moses HE gave humans their mouths, ears to hear and gives sight to blind? The Lord said send Aaron to help you.
“But if they will not believe even these two signs or heed what you say, then you shall take some water from the Nile and pour it on the dry ground; and the water which you take from the Nile will become blood on the dry ground.
Moses and Aaron came to Pharaoh, and did as the LORD commanded. So Aaron threw his staff down before Pharaoh and his servants and it turned into a snake. These signs were not enough for Pharaoh. “
So Moses and Aaron did even as the LORD had commanded. He lifted up the staff and struck the water in the Nile, in the sight of Pharaoh and his servants, and water in the Nile turned to blood.
So Aaron stretched out his hand over the waters of Egypt, and the frogs came up and covered the land of Egypt.
The LORD did according to the word of Moses, and the frogs died out of the houses, the courts, and the fields.
They did so as Aaron stretched his hand with his staff, and struck the dust of the earth, and there were gnats on man and beast. All the dust of earth became gnats through all the land of Egypt.
“For if you do not let My people go, behold, I will send swarms of flies on you and on your servants and on your people and into your houses; and the houses of the Egyptians will be full of swarms of flies, and also the ground on which they dwell. “But on that day I will set apart the land of Goshen, where My people are living, so no swarms of flies will be there, in order that you may know that I, the LORD, am in the midst of the land. “I will put division between My people and your people tomorrow this sign will occur.
The LORD did as Moses asked, and removed the swarms of flies from Pharaoh, from his servants and from his people; not one remained.
The hand of the LORD will come with a severe pestilence on your livestock in the field, on horses, on donkeys, on the camels, on herds, and on flocks. “But the LORD will make a distinction between the livestock of Israel and livestock of Egypt, so nothing will die that belongs to the sons of Israel.” The LORD set a definite time, saying, “Tomorrow the LORD will do this things in the land.”
So they took soot from a kiln, and stood before Pharaoh; and Moses threw it toward the sky, and it became boils breaking out with sores on man and beast. The magicians could not stand before Moses because of the boils, for the boils were on the magicians as well as on all the Egyptians.
Moses stretched his staff toward the sky and the LORD sent thunder, hail, and fire ran down to the earth. And the LORD rained hail on the land of Egypt.
Moses went out of city from Pharaoh, and spread out his hands to the LORD; and the thunder and the hail ceased, and rain no longer poured on the earth.
So Moses stretched out his staff over the land of Egypt, and the LORD directed an east wind on the land all that day and all that night; and when it was morning, the east wind brought the locusts.
The LORD shifted the wind to a strong west wind which took the locusts and drove them into the Red Sea; not one locust was left in all territory of Egypt.
So Moses stretched out his hand toward the sky, and there was thick darkness in all the land of Egypt for three days.
Now it came about at midnight that the LORD struck all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh who sat on his throne to the firstborn of the captive who was in the dungeon, and all the firstborn of cattle.
Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the LORD swept the sea back by a strong east wind all night and turned the sea into dry land, so the waters were divided. The sons of Israel went through midst of the sea on dry land, and the waters like a wall to them on their right hand and on their left..
The LORD said to Moses, “Stretch your hand over the sea for waters to come back over Egyptians, their chariots and horsemen. Moses stretched his hand over the sea to return to normal state at daybreak. While Egyptians were in the sea the LORD overthrew Egyptians in the midst of the sea. The water returned and covered their chariots, horsemen, Pharaoh’s entire army in the sea after Jews so not even one of them remained.
Then he cried out to the LORD, and the LORD showed him a tree; and he threw it into the waters, and the waters became sweet There He made for them a statute and regulation, and there He tested them.
“Behold, I will stand before you there on the rock at Horeb; and you shall strike the rock, and water will come out of it, that the people may drink.” And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel.
So it came about when Moses held his hand up, that Israel prevailed, and when he let his hand down, Amalek prevailed. But Moses’ hands were heavy. Then they took a stone and put it under him, and he sat on it; and Aaron and Hur supported his hands, one on one side and one on the other. Thus his hands were steady until the sun set. So Joshua overwhelmed Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword.
Moses said, “By this you shall know that the LORD has sent me to do all these deeds; for this is not my doing. “If these men die the death of all men or if they suffer the fate of all men, then the LORD has not sent me. “But if the LORD brings about an entirely new thing and the ground opens its mouth and swallows them up with all that is theirs, and they descend alive into Sheol, then you will understand that these men have spurned the LORD.
Exodus 20:1-26 On the third day, Moses received 10 Commandments on Mt Sinai near where God appeared to Moses in the burning bush.
Then Moses lifted up his hand and struck the rock twice with his rod; and water came forth abundantly, and the congregation and their beasts drank.
Then the LORD said to Moses, “Make a fiery serpent, and set it on a standard; and it shall come about, that everyone who is bitten, when he looks at it, he will live.” Moses made a bronze serpent and set it on the standard; and it came about if a serpent bit any man, when he looked to the bronze serpent, he lived.Exodus is the living history documented as shown in the above timeline of Israel from ancient history. The Jews lived in Cannaanland since the time of Abraham and migrated to Egypt during the severe famines that took place. Joseph brought his father Jacob, siblings and families to Egypt to settle in Goshen in Egypt. The Jews multiplied so rapidly despite their Egyptian Midwives warned to kill male children. The loyal Midwives preserved babies so rewarded with houses. Just as baby Moses escaped death of killing of the infants of Jews so Jesus escaped to Egypt as a baby from Herod. Moses was chosen and preserved by God to save the Jews in Egypt. The book of Micaiah in Bible says Moses will return to earth to join Elijah as two Witnesses to preach during endtimes. Together will help to repeat similar miracles again and more, then raised from death on the third day and taken to heaven alive. The miracles of Moses changing water of Nile river to blood is a symbolic link between Moses and Jesus. Moses is first saviour of Jew’s escape from Egypt as Jesus the Spiritual Saviour of all people. Moses and Jesus grew up in Egypt and will return to save people during endtime on earth. Bible in Deuteronomy 34:5-8 says Moses the servant of the LORD died in the land of Moab as Word of the LORD said 6 God buried him in the valley in the land of Moab beside Beth-peor, no man knows where he is buried to this day.7 Moses was 120 years old when he died. But his eyes were not weak and his strength had not left him. 8 The children of Israel cried for Moses in the valley of Moab for thirty days. Then days of crying and sorrow for Moses came to an end. And in Joshua 1:1-2 Bible says, 1 “After death of Moses Servant of the LORD the LORD spoke to Joshua the son of Nun, Moses’ minister, saying, 2 Moses MY servant is dead arise, go over Jordan with all this people to the land I gave to children of Israel. Moses died but his Spirit lived on so met Jesus and Elijah on the Mountain of transfiguration recognised by Peter, James and John. God confirms Jesus as His Beloved Son so listen and hear Him.
On the mountain in Matthew 17:2 Jesus was transfigured before Moses, Elijah, Peter, James and John. Jesus’ face then became shining as the sun, his garments white as light.” Transfiguration in front of the prophets Elijah and Moses, who appeared before Jesus confirms many interactions between heaven and earth as happens often. Jesus begins to talk to them and God affirms Jesus once again that Jesus is His Son and True Messiah. Peter wanted to built three tents for them to stay longer on the mountain top but was a preview of Jesus’ resurrection so not necessary. Moses and Elijah will return alive to earth as two witnesess in endtime evangelism to lead countless multitudes from all nations, tribes and languages to Christ to be saved in the name of Jesus. Later all will appear in heaven carrying branches before the Throne of God. Afterwards return with God to dwell eternally on a new perfect earth in New Jerusalem in Israel ruled by Jesus Christ.
