The 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. All 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.” 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. They 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.As 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. Replace 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. Sadly, 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 standardsSadly 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. A 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.Change 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. Micah 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.
1 Thessalonians 4:16 says For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet of God. The dead in Christ rise first. The “dead in Christ” are Christians who died before return of Christ. They will rise first and return with Him in 2 Corinthians. 5:8. They are in Christ, because they are saved so the Children of God. Redeemed by Jesus the Son of God boldly enter God’s Presence through the Blood of the Lamb of God in eternal life. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air and so we will always be with the Lord. COMFORT one another with these words from 1 Thessalonians 4:17-18. And in resurrection all who rise first have glorified bodies, meet with those alive and so will rapture together into heaven.And the Lord Jesus Christ Himself will descend from heaven with thousands of angels. At the last trumpet call, the dead in Christ will arise first. The Lord Jesus Christ Himself comes from heaven in the clouds with loud command the dead rise in Christ in 1 Thessalonians 4:16 guaranteed so come back to life. And together with those still alive will go in rapture to heaven as part of our hope in the eternal life. Eagerly waiting for the resurrection knowing RETURN of Christ reunites our families in heaven in the PRESENCE OF GOD. Those who died in God in Christ through salvation of God arise first at the TRUMPET call. All eyes on earth will SEE Jesus SHINING bright as the Sunshine. All in Christ will rejoice exceedingly at this COMING of Christ in rapture and celebrate in Jesus Name.
An 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. To 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. Fear 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.Immediately 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. They 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. Achior, 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 voice, You 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. And 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. Let 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.
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.
Is 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. Angry 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. Jeremiah 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.
Jeremiah 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.
The GOSPEL OF GOD’S KINGDOM is the MESSAGE to all nations. In Romans 1:16 the GOSPEL is “to Jew FIRST,” then ALL NATIONS. First Choice Jews is GOSPEL POWER of GOD for SALVATION to ALL who BELIEVE in the GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST. GOD used HIS POWER to Jews first and ALL the Nations in SALVATION PLAN of GOD. Charity begins at GOD’S Home among HIS Chosen people Israel. GOD’S GOSPEL KINGDOM is established through JESUS CHRIST KING OF Kings, LORD of Lords a Jew. GOD CHOSE Jesus as Abraham’s descendant in Genesis 12 BLESSED by COVENANT. Nehemiah 9:7 says, “GOD … Chose Abram from Ur of the Chaldeans in Iraq.” In Deuteronomy 14:2, GOD CHOSES people for HIS OWN personal possession out of all people on the face of earth.”Amos 3:2 says, “You ONLY GOD CHOSE among all families on earth.” Romans 11:28-29 says GOD’S CHOICE made them HIS Beloved for the sake of the Fathers, for Gifts and Calling of God are irrevocable.” Jews descend from tribe of Judah a son of Jacob. Tribe of Lion of Judah descendant Jesus, GOD CHOSE from the Royal genealogy of King David. GOD’S GOSPEL KINGDOM MESSAGE in Abraham is Isaac CHOSEN by GOD to do HIS WORK and establish HIS KINGDOM on earth. SALVATION BY GOD’S POWER to ALL Nations included in Abraham’s Covenant are grafted in by faith of Jew and Gentiles. God elects Chosen by HIS FREEWILL CHOICE: “The LORD didn’t set HIS LOVE to CHOOSE you because you were more in number than others for you were fewest of all peoples, but the LORD LOVES you and keeps an Oath SWORN to forefathers in Deuteronomy 7:7-8. GOD USED SOVEREIGN POWER and HIS AUTHORITY to Decide Jews join Gentiles in HIS GOSPEL KINGDOM OF GOD. In Romans 3:1, GOD’S Revelations promise to Israel by Moses or prophets to the nations. Romans 9:4 says to Israel belongs Covenants, giving of Laws and promises.” The GOSPEL OF SALVATION is given to Jews in the WORD of God, the Old Testament Scripture is basis of laws. The Messiah Jesus Christ a Jew gave His Life as ULTIMATE SACRIFICE for sins to Jew first and all nations. In Romans 9:5 says Christ is set over all blessed by God.The Messiah Jesus, the Son of David in Romans 1:3 started Ministry with Jews to lost sheep of Israel in Matthew 10:5-6. Jesus in John 4:22 told the Samaritan woman at well, “SALVATION is from the Jews.” CHOSEN nation is GOD’S GOSPEL Revelation through Messiah, SAVIOUR by salvation from Jews.” Romans 11:17-24, says Jews and Gentiles grafted into Covenant by in Christ Jesus True Vine so nations are His Tree’s branches. God in HIS MERCY saves all nations as children of Abraham by faith says Galatians 3:7. All by faith children of Abraham, God’s Covenants with Abraham extends to all the nations on earth. In Acts 13:46, Paul and Barnabas preaching in Antioch of Pisidia told Jews “Its necessary the word of God be spoken to you first for eternal life to turn Gentiles.” From Israel, is the spreading of the GOSPEL to new places, through Jewish Messiah is GOOD News of His Salvation. He who is given much from him required more accountability so in Romans 2:9-10, tribulation and the time of Jacob’s distress is to Jew first and so judgement begins in the Church of God grafted in. Glory, honour, peace rewards to all who does good to the Jews, blessed. For Messiah sake, everyone given much, much is required in Luke 12:48. In Romans 1:16, “The GOSPEL is POWER of God unto Salvation to all who believe, to Jew first and all nations. So important to understand God set up HIS KINGDOM by HIS POWER and Authority. The Seed of the woman through Genesis 29:31-35, “PRAISE THE LORD” son of Jacob, Judah CHOSEN out of 12 sons of Jacob to birth the Messiah. GOD’S GOSPEL KINGDOM is through the Son of God Jesus. GOD’S Salvation is in Christ Jesus, “HIS WAY, THE TRUTH and LIFE so none comes to Father GOD except through Jesus Christ in John 14:6. Salvation is through ONE GOD ONE Mediator between God and all wo/men in Christ Jesus in 1 Timothy 2:5. Bible is clear salvation is found ONLY in Jesus Christ for Christian believer’s in God. Authority of GOD’S WORD is the Biblical Authority of sharing the Saving GOSPEL to all nations to follow GOD’S POWERFUL GOSPEL KINGDOM of Son JESUS CHRIST. God designed and wants salvation as the SOVEREIGN LORD GOD ALMIGHTY with final say in mankind’s eternal destiny. Freewill choice is given to all mankind to accept God’s offer of salvation to join HIS GOSPEL KINGDOM. All in Christ receive GOD’S FREE GIFT of SALVATION but those who reject GOD’S GOSPEL PLAN the WRATH of GOD IS UNLEASHED globally in various forms written in BIBLE. God uses earthquakes, volcanoes floods, tsunamis, wildfires, plagues, hot scorching sun, droughts, famines, Tribulation birthpang warning before the final GREAT TRIBULATIONS. OBEY God’s Sovereign WILL and accept Jesus in your life in Jesus Name.
