Why Yahweh Will Judge the Earth

Why Yahweh Will Judge the Earth

 

Isaiah 26, “In that day this song will be sung in the land of Judah (modern State of Israel):

“We have a strong city;

Yahweh will appoint salvation for walls and bulwarks.

2  Open the gates,

That the righteous nation which keeps the truth may enter in.

3  You will keep him in perfect peace,

Whose mind is stayed on You,

Because he trusts in You.

4  Trust in Yahweh forever,

For in YAH, Yahweh, is everlasting strength.”

 

Israel has an appointment with salvation, but it will only occur when they are ready to accept Yeshua as their Messiah. Salvation has always been by grace through faith in Yeshua, by trust in Him, Yahweh. He must always be the object of our faith. It does you no good to trust in rabbis, Torah scrolls, or liturgy down at the local synagogue. Faith and trust in Yahweh alone brings us His perfect peace and everlasting strength. Read Romans 9-11 and understand that the phrase in 11:26, “And so all Israel will be saved” means that Jews, all Israelis, will be saved in the same way or manner in which Gentiles are saved, by grace through faith in Yeshua. Apart from Yeshua’s blood, there is no atonement for our sin.

 

5For He brings down those who dwell on high,

The lofty city;

He lays it low,

He lays it low to the ground,

He brings it down to the dust.

6  The foot shall tread it down—

The feet of the poor

And the steps of the needy.”

 

Just contemplate for a moment how much pride and arrogance wanders around the halls in Washington D.C., the U.N. building in New York City, the Hague, Moscow, Beijing, Tehran. Yahweh is more than able to humble the arrogance of man. There is a day appointed for this to happen, which is approaching at lightning speed. Oh look, the poor and needy will tread down the greatness of proud men.

 

7The way of the just is uprightness;

O Most Upright,

You weigh the path of the just.

8  Yes, in the way of Your judgments,

O Yahweh, we have waited for You;

The desire of our soul is for Your name (Yahweh)

And for the remembrance of You.

9  With my soul I have desired You in the night,

Yes, by my spirit within me I will seek You early;

For when Your judgments are in the earth,

The inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.”

 

We want Yahweh; we want Yahweh’s law; we want Yahweh’s commandments; we want Yahweh’s way. Yahweh is bringing judgment upon the earth to teach man His righteousness. When it’s all said and done, Yahweh will be the last Man standing, His Kingdom will be established, His way will be the only way allowed and the only way that will remain forever.

 

10Let grace be shown to the wicked,

    Yet he will not learn righteousness;

In the land of uprightness he will deal unjustly,

And will not behold the majesty of Yahweh.

11 Yahweh, when Your hand is lifted up, they will not see.

But they will see and be ashamed

For their envy of people;

Yes, the fire of Your enemies shall devour them.”

 

I don’t know if there is any more condemning words found anywhere else in the Scriptures. Yahweh has extended grace to mankind for about 6,000 years now, and yet the wicked still do not learn His righteousness. The days for envy and strife are about over. Do you realize that the Lake of Fire may be made up of nothing more than burning sinners and their sin? Yahweh has set a time limit for sin and sinners existence in His creation. That time is rapidly coming to an end. Yahweh is a consuming fire. On one hand, His fire purifies the saint so he can be holy and righteous like his Father. On the other hand, Yahweh destroys sin and sinners in His fire of judgment. When you turn your face to Yahweh, seeking Him, the fire of His Holy Spirit will apply the blood of Yeshua to you and cleanse you from all unrighteousness. But if you turn your back on Yahweh and try to run from Him, His Holy Spirit will simply bowl you over and knock you into the Lake of Fire. Humble yourself and turn to Yahweh today to experience His love and forgiveness, available through Yeshua HaMashiach, His Son.

 

12Yahweh, You will establish peace for us,

For You have also done all our works in us.

13 O Yahweh our Mighty One, masters besides You

Have had dominion over us;

But by You only we make mention of Your name.

14 They are dead, they will not live;

They are deceased, they will not rise.

Therefore You have punished and destroyed them,

And made all their memory to perish.

15 You have increased the nation, O Yahweh,

You have increased the nation;

You are glorified;

You have expanded all the borders of the land.”

 

No matter how great your ministry is, never forget Who does the work in you. He can do your ministry without you, but you cannot do your ministry without Him. The wicked masters who have beaten us down will die, an eternal death from which they have no hope of resurrecting to life. Yahweh’s goal is to build His family, His kingdom, His nation upon this earth. He wants to expand the Promised Land, NOT DIVIDE IT! Taking the side of Yahweh’s enemies, seeking the destruction of Israel, or the dividing of His Land is a stupid decision, guaranteeing a certain and deadly end.

 

16Yahweh, in trouble they have visited You,

They poured out a prayer when Your chastening was upon them.

17 As a woman with child

Is in pain and cries out in her pangs,

When she draws near the time of her delivery,

So have we been in Your sight, O Yahweh.

18 We have been with child, we have been in pain;

We have, as it were, brought forth wind;

We have not accomplished any deliverance in the earth,

Nor have the inhabitants of the world fallen.”

 

Do you only pray to Yahweh when you’re in trouble? Unfortunately, that’s the case with too many of Yahweh’s children. He would like to meet with you daily, even moment by moment. You’ve heard these words before haven’t you? Is this where John the Revelator received his inspired words for Revelation 12? Possibly. The woman, the church, Israel, brought forth wind in Isaiah’s day, not mixing the word with faith, as the writer of Hebrews 4:2 explains, “For indeed the gospel was preached to us as well as to them; but the word which they heard did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in those who heard it.” What did the church bring forth in John’s revelation? Right, Yahweh brought forth His only begotten Son about 2,000 years ago. Ok, so what is the church in labor pain for now, today, at the end of time? We long for the Kingdom of Yahweh to bring deliverance to the earth. Deliverance for us is judgment for the wicked world.

 

19Your dead shall live;

Together with my dead body they shall arise.

Awake and sing, you who dwell in dust;

For your dew is like the dew of herbs,

And the earth shall cast out the dead.

20 Come, my people, enter your chambers,

And shut your doors behind you;

Hide yourself, as it were, for a little moment,

Until the indignation is past.

21 For behold, Yahweh comes out of His place

    To punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity;

The earth will also disclose her blood,

And will no more cover her slain.”

 

We labor in much pain for resurrection day, rapture day, judgment day, our Jubilee! Isaiah is looking forward to his own resurrection with us, together as one body, the family of Yahweh. Why will Yahweh judge the earth? to deliver His people, to punish the wicked inhabitants on earth. His indignation comes to destroy the wicked, which is our deliverance from birth pangs. Yahweh will establish his holy righteous Kingdom on planet earth; unfortunately for the wicked, this means their total obliteration, annihilation, and destruction by fire. The tares will be gathered and burned, the wheat will be gathered into His barn. You know the story, you know how it ends, just get ready and watch and pray. Sar Shalom is coming.

The People Do Not Turn

The People Do Not Turn

 

In today’s blog post we will answer one simple question, “Why is Yahweh still angry?”

 

Isaiah 9, “Nevertheless the gloom will not be upon her who is distressed,

As when at first He lightly esteemed

The land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali,

And afterward more heavily oppressed her,

By the way of the sea, beyond the Jordan,

In Galilee of the Gentiles.

2  The people who walked in darkness

Have seen a great light;

Those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death,

Upon them a light has shined.

3  You have multiplied the nation

And increased its joy;

They rejoice before You

According to the joy of harvest,

As men rejoice when they divide the spoil.

4  For You have broken the yoke of his burden

And the staff of his shoulder,

The rod of his oppressor,

As in the day of Midian.

5  For every warrior’s sandal from the noisy battle,

And garments rolled in blood,

Will be used for burning and fuel of fire.

6  For unto us a Child is born,

Unto us a Son (Yeshua) is given;

And the government will be upon His shoulder.

And His name will be called

Wonderful, Counselor, Almighty Mighty One,

Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

7  Of the increase of His government and peace

    There will be no end,

Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom,

To order it and establish it with judgment and justice

From that time forward, even forever.

The zeal of Yahweh of hosts will perform this.

8  Yahweh sent a word against Jacob,

And it has fallen on Israel.

9  All the people will know—

Ephraim and the inhabitant of Samaria—

Who say in pride and arrogance of heart:

10 “The bricks have fallen down,

But we will rebuild with hewn stones;

The sycamores are cut down,

But we will replace them with cedars.”

11  Therefore Yahweh shall set up

The adversaries of Rezin against him,

And spur his enemies on,

12 The Syrians (backed by Iran of course) before and the Philistines (Palestinians) behind;

And they shall devour Israel with an open mouth.

For all this His anger is not turned away,

But His hand is stretched out still.

13 For the people do not turn to Him who strikes them,

    Nor do they seek Yahweh of hosts.

14  Therefore Yahweh will cut off head (honorable elders) and (false prophets) tail from Israel,

Palm branch and bulrush in one day.

15 The elder and honorable, he is the head;

The prophet who teaches lies, he is the tail.

16 For the leaders of this people (American, British, Israeli) cause them to err,

And those who are led by them are destroyed.

17  Therefore Yahweh will have no joy in their young men,

Nor have mercy on their fatherless and widows;

For everyone is a hypocrite and an evildoer,

And every mouth speaks folly.

For all this His anger is not turned away,

But His hand is stretched out still.

18 For wickedness burns as the fire;

It shall devour the briers and thorns,

And kindle in the thickets of the forest;

They shall mount up like rising smoke.

19 Through the wrath of Yahweh of hosts

The land is burned up,

And the people shall be as fuel for the fire;

No man shall spare his brother.

20 And he shall snatch on the right hand

And be hungry;

He shall devour on the left hand

And not be satisfied;

Every man shall eat the flesh of his own arm. (See, I told you famines are coming.)

21  Manasseh (America) shall devour Ephraim (Great Britain), and Ephraim (Great Britain) Manasseh (America);

Together they shall be against Judah (modern State of Israel).

For all this His anger is not turned away,

But His hand is stretched out still.”

 

Why is Yahweh still angry? Verses 6 and 7 above show us that Yahweh has already given us His only begotten son Yeshua. If Yahweh has already provided us our Savior and Redeemer, Yeshua HaMashiach, and Yeshua Himself has already lain His life down for us on His execution stake to save us from our sin, why is Yahweh still angry? This salvation is offered freely to you, dear sinner, but you must do something in return in order to receive this freely offered salvation. Contrary to popular belief, this salvation is not free; it cost Yahweh everything to give you His own Son, and it will cost you everything to follow His Son in discipleship. Eternal salvation after you die physically may appear as a free gift, but to follow Yeshua in discipleship while in this sinful flesh is all about COST to you. Laying down your self life and taking up your cross daily is nothing but COST. . .to you. Sinner, you must turn from your wicked ways and turn to Yeshua in faith and trust Him to see you through life.

 

Look at verses 8 through 12 above, even if modern Israel brings home all the known Jewish priests from around the world and rebuilds an altar and/or temple in Jerusalem and begin again all the old Mosaic sacrifices, will Yahweh be happy? No. Even if all the Muslim terrorists destroy all of Israel for their rebellion, will Yahweh be happy? No. What makes Yahweh happy? Read verse 13 again, “For the people do not turn to Him who strikes them, nor do they seek Yahweh of hosts.” Yahweh wants us to turn to Him, to seek Him and His kingdom, to listen to Him, to follow Him, to love Him, to worship Him. Do the nations of the world, especially Yahweh’s so-called nations of America, Great Britain, and modern Israel, do that? For the most part, no. Yahweh speaks a word against Israel, America, and Great Britain, the people DO NOT TURN TO HIM, even when He spanks us or disciplines us. What is there in America, Britain, or Israel that pleases Yahweh? Sure, we have brilliant scientists, doctors, teachers, engineers, etc., who do great things, but a lost scientist or doctor is still LOST! An unconverted man does not please Yahweh. An obstinate heart does not please Yahweh, rebellion brings His anger and wrath. That has not changed, even though Yeshua lives!

 

Yahweh is cutting off leadership from these nations. Why? Because the lost leaders of our nations lead us the people astray, away from Yahweh. Be not surprised to see more great preachers, teachers, rabbis, politicians, and false prophets taken out of the way in these nations. There is no such thing as a saved corporation. Corporate leaders of the world are running from Yahweh into their greed as fast as they can. What is Yahweh saying? There are no answers with man. Our leaders are leading us to destruction. It was prophesied thousands of years ago, it’s happening today.

 

Look at verse 17, as we turn from Yahweh, or forget Him and His law and ways, He turns from us and our children. Yahweh begins to WITHHOLD HIS MERCY from our families, and He is still angry! One thing we need in the end times is Yahweh’s mercy. How do we obtain His mercy? Throw ourselves on His altar, not our money, not our possessions, our sinful selves. Yahweh wants YOU, not what you think you can give Him. He doesn’t need our stuff, but He wants us.

 

Why will people be throwing their gold and silver into the streets in the end times? Because they can’t eat their stuff! Your iphone is a nice gadget, but you can’t eat it. It may be a smart phone, but it’s dumb food. Idols are poor saviors. Look at verses 18-20. Famines are rapidly coming upon our lands. Thousands are dying of starvation in Somalia today. It’s just the beginning of sorrows. Famine is a judgment of Yahweh, it is one way He pours out His wrath. Only intercession and repentance on our part can stop the judgment hand of Yahweh.

 

Now we come to verse 21, the hardest word in chapter 9 of Isaiah. As America and Great Britain devour each other and then turn against our brother Judah, modern Israel, watch Yahweh’s outstretched arm of judgment against our nations. As we’ve posted several times before, man has no authority to divide Yahweh’s promised land of Israel. If America and Great Britain take a stand against Israel in the UN when it comes time to vote on a Palestinian State, watch out, we’re done. Over the last few decades, Yahweh has warned us over and over with hurricanes, earthquakes and tornadoes and other disasters, each time we took a stand against Israel. It’s a fatal mistake. We MUST bless Israel in order to be blessed by Yahweh. If our leaders are so stupid as to turn our nations away from Israel and Israel’s Mighty One, we are doomed. There is no pretty way to say it, we’re finished.

 

Our economy is just one area in which Yahweh is humbling us. Do you know any individual or corporation willing to take their 3 million dollars per minute PROFIT and pump it into the U.S. Government, just to pay the INCREASE in our national debt? That’s how fast we are INCREASING our national debt, $3 million per minute! You have to sell a LOT of Chinese junk at Walmart to make that kind of profit. Maybe big oil and wall street bankers make that rate of profit, but are they going to give it to you and your U.S. Government just to pay national debt? I doubt it. Big businesses have their hands out, just like the people. When you see a man show up who has the solution to the world’s ills, look out, he will be the Anti-messiah!

 

Why is Yahweh still angry with humans? because the people do not turn from their sin and turn to Him in repentance and faith in Yeshua. How many of us can say, though He destroys my life, yet I will trust Him? Yeshua continues to give us only one sign of Jonah, REPENT, repent, repent! But I think He’s getting tired of saying it.

Extinction Level Event

Extinction Level Event

 

Genesis 1:26-31, “Then Yahweh said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 27So Yahweh created man in His own image; in the image of Yahweh He created him; male and female He created them. 28Then Yahweh blessed them, and Yahweh said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.

29And Yahweh said, “See, I have given you every herb that yields seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree whose fruit yields seed; to you it shall be for food. 30Also, to every beast of the earth, to every bird of the air, and to everything that creeps on the earth, in which there is life, I have given every green herb for food”; and it was so. 31Then Yahweh saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day.”

 

About 6,000 years ago, Yahweh created mankind to rule over the earth, to have dominion over Yahweh’s creation. We were to care for the creation that Yahweh had made for us. We were created to be the gardeners and caretakers of this once beautiful planet. Yahweh provided us with food and the seeds to perpetually grow our own food. Life was wonderful on this new green earth for a short while, until Adam and Eve sinned. Since then, it’s been a struggle to grow good healthy food. Oh yeah, kids, food does not grow on grocery store shelves, it grows in dirt, the good old soil of the earth. Well, we’ve done ok in growing our own food, up until about 100 years ago, about the time we started world wars and began killing each other wholesale.

 

I just read a disturbing article from National Geographic found here: http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/2011/07/food-ark/siebert-text titled Food Ark. Here’s one paragraph from that article that should chill you to the bones: “Food varieties extinction is happening all over the world—and it’s happening fast. In the United States an estimated 90 percent of our historic fruit and vegetable varieties have vanished. Of the 7,000 apple varieties that were grown in the 1800s, fewer than a hundred remain. In the Philippines thousands of varieties of rice once thrived; now only up to a hundred are grown there. In China 90 percent of the wheat varieties cultivated just a century ago have disappeared. Experts estimate that we have lost more than half of the world’s food varieties over the past century. As for the 8,000 known livestock breeds, 1,600 are endangered or already extinct.” (Emphasis mine throughout)

 

I believe humans worry too much about non-essentials and things they can do nothing about, like Planet X, comet Elenin, earthquakes, tsunamis, tornadoes, etc. We should be a little more concerned about growing food and obtaining clean drinking water. Yeshua stated in Matthew 24:7, “For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places.” Yeshua went on to say that these famines will happen BEFORE the tribulation, as the beginnings of sorrows. That means we won’t be raptured BEFORE the famines strike. That should concern all of us. I’m not a greenie, or an environmentalist, but I do like to eat. I’m not a big save-the-planet kind of guy. We can’t save the planet any more than we can save our souls. We’re supposed to be doubling our food production, not killing off whole varieties of edibles. We are supposed to be good stewards of what Yahweh has provided for us, not destroying what sustains our very physical lives. I encourage any of you who have access to good heirloom seeds to donate some of these seeds to a seed bank near you.

 

The fourth horseman of the apocalypse includes famine, Revelation 6:7-8, “When He opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, “Come and see.” 8So I looked, and behold, a pale horse. And the name of him who sat on it was Death, and Hades followed with him. And power was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, with hunger, with death, and by the beasts of the earth.” Whether or not you know it or believe it, the four horsemen of the apocalypse have been riding for about a hundred years now. Like it or not, we are in the end times. I hope you’re prepared to meet it and your Maker.

 

If you are interested in more information on the Elenin comet, or coming fiasco, surf here: http://alamongordo.com/general/elenin-timeline/ We were supposed to experience a lot of damage on August 17, 2011 CE, but it didn’t happen, so I don’t put a lot of stock in end-time predictions. If there is a Planet X out there that is approaching earth and lining up with the sun and planets of our solar system, great, bring on the end. It’s time to see Yeshua’s kingdom established on planet earth. Just the other day we had 13 earthquakes in Colorado, we didn’t feel any of them. You can read more about them here: http://www.kktv.com/home/headlines/128228203.html  Coloradans, that was a warning shot over the Rockies. Unless we repent, we will all likewise perish. There is a time coming when Yahweh will deal with all the mountains of the world, Revelation 16:17-21, “Then the seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and a loud voice came out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, “It is done!” 18And there were noises and thunderings and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such a mighty and great earthquake as had not occurred since men were on the earth. 19Now the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell. And great Babylon (America) was remembered before Yahweh, to give her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His wrath. 20Then every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. 21And great hail from heaven fell upon men, each hailstone about the weight of a talent. Men blasphemed Yahweh because of the plague of the hail, since that plague was exceedingly great.”

 

We are only at the beginning of famines, earthquakes, and mass death. Judgment Day events have not begun yet. When Yahweh gets rolling with Judgment Day, you will see whole cities, states, and nations disappearing. America has a date with destiny, scheduled by Yahweh Himself. Unless we begin to immediately repent of our national sins, we will see this day of destruction sooner, rather than later. The good news is that Yeshua will return, but not until it looks totally hopeless on this rock. Death by starvation is a nasty way to go out of this world, but we sinners have set ourselves up for this end-time hunger scenario. Seven billion people, 1,400 seed banks, you do the math. Just remember, the bad news is good news for believers in Yeshua. Be a good steward and look up to your Redeemer.

Mankind Must Repent

MANKIND MUST REPENT

 

Part of Balaam’s oracle to Balak, Numbers 23:19, “Yahweh is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?” Yahweh made it clear that He has no need to repent of anything. He doesn’t sin, so no problem for Him there. He doesn’t commit evil against any man or angel, so He doesn’t need to repent of any evil act. Yahweh is perfectly holy and righteous. He is holiness. He is righteousness. He is wholly good. He is perfect. So what’s the message for us? WE ARE MEN, SO WE NEED TO REPENT!!

 

You’ve seen the news of riots in England. You’ve heard of the flash mobs in the large cities in America, robbing any retail store they choose. Well, I think I’ve seen it all now. I deliver prescription drugs in a little hick town in Colorado. So I pull up to this one client’s residence. I have one $1.00 med for the man. I have one $1.00 med for the woman. The strung out woman comes to the door and tells me she doesn’t have any money, the man left her at home without any funds. So what? She snatches the meds out of my hands and tells me she has to take her meds. As she rushes back inside her mobile home, she tells me I can call the police if I wish. Right. . . I’m going to call the cops on a $2.00 thief while making a FREE delivery right to her front door! You should have seen her dogs, two dogs the size of the little truck I was driving! I just got mugged in broad daylight by a little crack head woman with two monster dogs! What is wrong with this picture? What is wrong with Americans? What is wrong with this woman? She’s not just sick, she’s a sinner, in great need of repentance.

 

What did Yeshua say in Luke 13:1-5, “There were present at that season some who told Him about the Galileans Americans whose blood Pilate Osama bin Laden had mingled with their sacrifices. 2And Yeshua answered and said to them, “Do you suppose that these Galileans Americans were worse sinners than all other Galileans Americans, because they suffered such things? 3I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish. 4Or those eighteen on whom the tower in Siloam New York City fell and killed them, do you think that they were worse sinners than all other men who dwelt in Jerusalem New York City? 5I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish.”” Friends, we are all sinners. We all need to repent daily, habitually, or else we will all likewise perish. Civilized society is crumbling down around us. People have rejected Yahweh and His Son Yeshua. There is salvation in no one else. We are just beginning to reap the consequences of our poor choices. The nations are collapsing under the weight of sin. The entire world is coming apart because of sin. Sure, Yeshua died for our sins, but unless each person repents of his sin and turns to Yeshua in faith, the sin problem remains. Not for long though. Yahweh is about fed up with the foolishness of mankind.

 

You don’t think I became angry when a little crack head woman steals from me? I was filled with rage, but was I going to say or do something stupid for which I would later be sorry? No. I just had to walk away. That woman will pay if she does not repent. Her man friend will pay if he does not repent. If a $2.00 sin makes me that angry, I mean I was ready to pop, how do you think that “little” sin makes Yahweh feel? Why are the Scriptures filled with verses describing Yahweh coming to judge the earth in anger and fury? Because sin is so wicked and damaging that it makes even the Creator of the universe angry! He knows what sin has done to His perfect creation. Yahweh is infinitely more patient with sin and sinners than I could ever hope to be, but the cup of mankind’s sin is about full. When Yahweh says enough is enough, look out human, look out nation, look out world. Our days on this planet are numbered, and the number is shrinking on a daily basis. If we’re not already in the seven-year tribulation, which we are not supposed to be in, since we have not been raptured yet, I can still smell the fires of judgment beginning to burn. What does a hundred pound burning hailstone smell like anyway? And what’s that fiery orange glow on the horizon? Oh that, that’s hellfire. . .

 

I pray for my customers, please pray for me, so I don’t do or say something stupid. I mean, really, who wants to go to prison over a $2.00 sin? I’ll pray for you too.

 

Blessings,

Battle-ax Today Reall Peace Tomorrow

BATTLE-AX TODAY REAL PEACE TOMORROW

 

 

James 5:7-12, “Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of Yeshua. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently for it until it receives the early and latter rain. 8You also be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of Yeshua is at hand.

9Do not grumble against one another, brethren, lest you be condemned. Behold, the Judge is standing at the door! 10My brethren, take the prophets, who spoke in the name of Yahweh, as an example of suffering and patience. 11Indeed we count them blessed who endure. You have heard of the perseverance of Job and seen the end intended by Yahweh—that Yahweh is very compassionate and merciful.

12But above all, my brethren, do not swear, either by heaven or by earth or with any other oath. But let your “Yes” be “Yes,” and your “No,” “No,” lest you fall into judgment.”

 

Today, let’s take the prophet Ezekiel in chapter 9, “Then He called out in my hearing with a loud voice, saying, “Let those who have charge over the city draw near, each with a deadly weapon in his hand.” 2And suddenly six men came from the direction of the upper gate, which faces north, each with his battle-ax in his hand. One man among them was clothed with linen and had a writer’s inkhorn at his side. They went in and stood beside the bronze altar.

3Now the glory of the Mighty One of Israel had gone up from the cherub, where it had been, to the threshold of the temple. And He called to the man clothed with linen, who had the writer’s inkhorn at his side; 4and Yahweh said to him, “Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and put a mark on the foreheads of the men who sigh and cry over all the abominations that are done within it.”

5To the others He said in my hearing, “Go after him through the city and kill; do not let your eye spare, nor have any pity. 6Utterly slay old and young men, maidens and little children and women; but do not come near anyone on whom is the mark; and begin at My sanctuary.” So they began with the elders who were before the temple. 7Then He said to them, “Defile the temple, and fill the courts with the slain. Go out!” And they went out and killed in the city.

8So it was, that while they were killing them, I was left alone; and I fell on my face and cried out, and said, “Ah, Sovereign Yahweh! Will You destroy all the remnant of Israel in pouring out Your fury on Jerusalem?

9Then He said to me, “The iniquity of the house of Israel and Judah is exceedingly great, and the land is full of bloodshed, and the city full of perversity; for they say, ‘Yahweh has forsaken the land, and Yahweh does not see!’ 10And as for Me also, My eye will neither spare, nor will I have pity, but I will recompense their deeds on their own head.”

11Just then, the man clothed with linen, who had the inkhorn at his side, reported back and said, “I have done as You commanded me.””

 

Does not verse 4 sound familiar? Yahweh seals His saints to protect them and to separate them from the wicked of the world, unto His work. What does Revelation 7:1-8 say, “After these things I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, on the sea, or on any tree. 2Then I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living Mighty One. And he cried with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it was granted to harm the earth and the sea, 3saying, “Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the trees till we have sealed the servants of our Mighty One on their foreheads.” 4And I heard the number of those who were sealed. One hundred and forty-four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel were sealed:

5  of the tribe of Judah twelve thousand were sealed;

of the tribe of Reuben twelve thousand were sealed;

of the tribe of Gad twelve thousand were sealed;

6  of the tribe of Asher twelve thousand were sealed;

of the tribe of Naphtali twelve thousand were sealed;

of the tribe of Manasseh twelve thousand were sealed;

7  of the tribe of Simeon twelve thousand were sealed;

of the tribe of Levi twelve thousand were sealed;

of the tribe of Issachar twelve thousand were sealed;

8  of the tribe of Zebulun twelve thousand were sealed;

of the tribe of Joseph twelve thousand were sealed;

of the tribe of Benjamin twelve thousand were sealed.”

 

Yahweh always has a remnant that will be sealed at the appointed time to fulfill His will on earth. When He is about to pour out judgment on earth, He separates out His remnant called at that hour to be His witness, His testimony, to minister to the saints who will inherit salvation. Folks, our Heavenly Father is about filled up with all He wants to take from this world. It’s time to wrap up human miserable history and establish Yeshua’s Kingdom on earth. It’s time to intercede for all of Yahweh’s people, all Israel, Jew and Gentile believers, and pray for a spirit of repentance to come upon the lost. There is still time, just not much time left to be saved. Yahweh’s fury is about to burst upon us. It’s time to be sealed in the Holy Spirit, so you will not be deceived into taking the mark of the Beast. There is a vote being taken, there is a choice being made. Choose life, choose Yeshua, choose Yahweh and His Kingdom. Yahweh does not want to destroy anyone, especially His own people, but a day is coming when He must not show any pity on wicked mankind. The earth must be cleansed of sin once and for all eternity. Only those set apart by Yahweh will be spared, raptured, kept safe from the wrath to come.

 

You do not want to be on earth during the coming tribulation years. Isaiah 28:14-23, “Therefore hear the word of Yahweh, you scornful men, who rule this people who are in Jerusalem,

15 Because you have said, “We have made a covenant with death,

And with Sheol we are in agreement.

When the overflowing scourge passes through,

It will not come to us,

For we have made lies our refuge,

And under falsehood we have hidden ourselves.”

16Therefore thus says Sovereign Yahweh:

“Behold, I lay in Zion a stone for a foundation,

A tried stone, a precious cornerstone, a sure foundation;

Whoever believes will not act hastily.

17 Also I will make justice the measuring line,

And righteousness the plummet;

The hail (see Revelation 8:7; 11:19; 16:21) will sweep away the refuge of lies,

And the waters will overflow the hiding place.

18 Your covenant with death will be annulled,

And your agreement with Sheol will not stand;

When the overflowing scourge passes through,

Then you will be trampled down by it.

19 As often as it goes out it will take you;

For morning by morning it will pass over,

And by day and by night;

It will be a terror just to understand the report.”

20 For the bed is too short to stretch out on,

And the covering so narrow that one cannot wrap himself in it.

21 For Yahweh will rise up as at Mount Perazim,

    He will be angry as in the Valley of Gibeon

    That He may do His work, His awesome work,

    And bring to pass His act, His unusual act.

22 Now therefore, do not be mockers,

Lest your bonds be made strong;

For I have heard from Sovereign Yahweh of hosts,

    A destruction determined even upon the whole earth.

23 Give ear and hear my voice,

Listen and hear my speech.”

 

Isaiah 28 reveals something of Yahweh’s character that we have not seen in human history. Most of the time we see Yahweh acting out of His character of love. 1 John 4:8 tells us that Yahweh is love. Soon, we will see a side to His character that will terrify all creation. The cup of human sin is about full, the cup of satanic rebellion is about full. Yahweh is about to explode in rage against sin and rebellion. Look at Isaiah 28:21, the work that Yahweh is about to do is a new, unheard of, almost foreign to His character, work of deliverance and judgment. It is Yahweh’s responsibility to cleanse this world of sin and wicked men. What did He promise Yeshua in Psalm 110:1, “Yahweh said to my Master (Yeshua), “Sit at My right hand, till I make Your enemies Your footstool.”” Yeshua has been sitting at the right hand of the Father since 30 CE. This promise prophecy is repeated SEVEN times in the Scriptures: Psalm 110:1; Matthew 22:44; Mark 12:36; Luke 20:42-43; Acts 2:34-35; Hebrews 1:13; 10:12-13. This is a good indication that it will definitely come to pass and that it will happen over a seven-year tribulation period. In most instances of judgment seen in the Scriptures, you see Yahweh mixing judgment with His mercy. You don’t see total destruction very often.

 

Yeshua stated in Luke 17:26 & 28, “as it was in the days of Noah . . . Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot.” Nobody survived except Yahweh’s chosen righteous remnant. By the time Yahweh is done pouring out His wrath without mercy during the tribulation, there will not be one single wicked person left alive on this planet. That will be the terror that we will be trying to understand as we hear from heaven the reports of Judgment come in. Think back to Hurricane Katrina and the 9.0 earthquake in Japan. There were survivors; when Yahweh judges the cities, states and nations, there will be no survivors, except His chosen set-apart and sealed remnant. James 2:13, “Do this, because on the day of judgment there will be no pity for those who have not had pity on others. But even in judgment, Yahweh is merciful!” CEV. How do we know Yahweh is merciful, even in judgment? A few humans survive, Yahweh’s chosen, sealed, marked, raptured, set-apart remnant witnesses make it through Judgment Day, by Yahweh’s grace, through faith in Yeshua.

 

This does not sound like a positive message, Yahweh exploding in wrathful rage at the end of time, but it is good news to Yahweh’s children. Sin is evil and has wrought unbelievable damage upon mankind since the beginning of time. Yeshua was executed by His Father to pay the ransom for our redemption through His blood; our penalty for sin was paid in full by Yeshua’s sacrifice on the execution stake, which gives Yahweh full legal claim to this earth and humanity once again. Since Satan won’t give it up willingly, Yahweh will be forced to crush sin and Satan once and for all. Satan will be bound in the prison of the bottomless pit for the 1,000 years of the Millennial reign of Yeshua on earth, but he will be executed after his sentencing hearing at the end of time. Sin, death, and the devil will be finished, for eternity. So, even the bad news of what’s happening to this old sin-filled world is actually good news. Rejoice and praise your Heavenly Father!!

Isaiah and Hezekiah’s Jubilee Year

ISAIAH AND HEZEKIAH’S JUBILEE YEAR

 

There is only one place in Scripture where a Jubilee is prophesied, described, and apparently lived out in Hebrew history. The story can be found in Isaiah 36-37, 2 Kings 18-19, and 2 Chronicles 32. It happened in the 14th year of Hezekiah, King of Judah. We know from Sacred Chronology that the 14th year of Hezekiah was 715 BCE. How do we know it was in 715 BCE? Glad you asked. 2 Kings 18:10-11, “And at the end of three years they took it. In the sixth year of Hezekiah, that is, the ninth year of Hoshea king of Israel, Samaria was taken. 11Then the king of Assyria carried Israel away captive to Assyria, and put them in Halah and by the Habor, the River of Gozan, and in the cities of the Medes.” The northern 10 tribes of Israel were taken captive to Assyria in 723 BCE, according to biblical and Assyrian records. 723 BCE was Hezekiah’s 6th year as King of Judah. Count forward 8 years from 723 BCE and you arrive at 715 BCE as Hezekiah’s 14th year. Isaiah 36:1, “Now it came to pass in the fourteenth year of King Hezekiah (715 BCE) that Sennacherib king of Assyria came up against all the fortified cities of Judah and took them.” Read the story, but during this attack, Isaiah gave Hezekiah the following prophecy:

 

Isaiah 37:30, “This shall be a sign to you:

You shall eat this year (7th year, 49th year, Sabbatical year) such as grows of itself,

And the second year (8th year, 50th year, Jubilee Year) what springs from the same;

Also in the third year (9th year, 1st year of next Sabbatical cycle) sow and reap,

Plant vineyards and eat the fruit of them.”

 

The prophecy is duplicated in 2 Kings 19:29, “This shall be a sign to you:

You shall eat this year such as grows of itself,

And in the second year what springs from the same;

Also in the third year sow and reap,

Plant vineyards and eat the fruit of them.”

 

This prophecy is not replicated in the same story as related in 2 Chronicles 32.

 

When you lay this prophecy out on a spreadsheet, the 50-year Jubilee calendar stands out as the simple, logical winner. The Jubilee Year is then made to be a year zero (0) in the Sabbatical Cycles. This only causes a problem for those who wish to see a never-ending cycle of 7-year Sabbaticals. But Yahweh deliberately commands a 50th year to be celebrated as a Jubilee in Leviticus 25. Yahweh’s command breaks the eternal cycle of 7-year Sabbaticals and causes the Jubilee Year to stand apart as a very special holy year of redemption and release for His people. If the world operated under this command today, we would not be in the financial mess we are in.

 

Under the 49-year Jubilee scenario, Isaiah would have spoken the prophecy on or after Nisan 1, 715 BCE, which would be Hezekiah’s 14th year. Under this 49-year Jubilee calendar, the Jubilee Year would have started with Yom Kippur in 716 BCE and ended with Yom Kippur in 715 BCE. This Jubilee Cycle and calendar works fine and all Sabbatical years, and the known events that happened during those years throughout Hebrew history, are perfectly synchronized. Under this 49-year scenario, the 7th Sabbatical year and the Jubilee Year are one and the same, therefore, a seeming 50-year Jubilee Cycle is completed in only 49 solar years, leaving no breaks between any Sabbatical Cycles.

 

Under the 50-year Jubilee scenario, Isaiah would have spoken the prophecy on or after Tishri 10, Yom Kippur, 715 BCE, which would still be Hezekiah’s 14th regnal year. Under this 50-year Jubilee calendar, the Sabbatical year would have been from Yom Kippur, 715 BCE to Yom Kippur of 714 BCE. Then following the Sabbatical year, under this 50-year Jubilee calendar, the Jubilee Year would have started with Yom Kippur in 714 BCE and ended with Yom Kippur in 713 BCE. Under this scenario, the Jubilee Year follows after the Sabbatical Year ends and the Jubilee Cycle takes up exactly 50 solar years to complete. And as an added bonus, under the 50-year Jubilee Cycle, year 1 of the first Sabbatical cycle is year 1 of solar human history. That fact adds weight to the 50-year Jubilee Cycle.

 

Under either scenario, Isaiah speaks the prophecy in the 7th Sabbatical Year, or 49th year, of the respective Jubilee Cycle, in Hezekiah’s 14th regnal year as King of Judah. As amazing as it may seem, these two Jubilee scenarios are in perfect harmony with each other. Look at Leviticus 25:9, “Then you shall cause the trumpet of the Jubilee to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month; on the Day of Atonement you shall make the trumpet to sound throughout all your land.” On the tenth day of the seventh month of WHICH YEAR, THE 49TH OR THE 50TH? Verse 8 speaks of the 49th year and verse 10 speaks of the 50th year. Is it possible that Yahweh left verse 9 purposely ambiguous so He could use both a 49-year and a 50-year Jubilee Cycle on His Divine Calendar system? My Sacred Chronology spreadsheet would answer yes.

Synchronizing Jubilee Calendars

SYNCHRONIZING JUBILEE CALENDARS

 

James 5:7-12, “Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Master (Yeshua). See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently for it until it receives the early and latter rain. 8You also be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Master is at hand.

9Do not grumble against one another, brethren, lest you be condemned. Behold, the Judge is standing at the door! 10My brethren, take the prophets, who spoke in the name of the Master, as an example of suffering and patience. 11Indeed we count them blessed who endure. You have heard of the perseverance of Job and seen the end intended by Yahweh—that Yahweh is very compassionate and merciful.

12But above all, my brethren, do not swear, either by heaven or by earth or with any other oath. But let your “Yes” be “Yes,” and your “No,” “No,” lest you fall into judgment.”

 

Ezekiel 8, “And it came to pass in the sixth year (of Ezekiel’s captivity in 594 BCE, the same as his 30th year of Ezekiel 1:1, 30 years from finding the Book of the Law by Hilkiah the priest), in the sixth month, on the fifth day of the month, as I sat in my house with the elders of Judah sitting before me, that the hand of Sovereign Yahweh fell upon me there. 2Then I looked, and there was a likeness, like the appearance of fire—from the appearance of His waist and downward, fire; and from His waist and upward, like the appearance of brightness, like the color of amber. 3He stretched out the form of a hand, and took me by a lock of my hair; and the Spirit lifted me up between earth and heaven, and brought me in visions of Yahweh to Jerusalem, to the door of the north gate of the inner court, where the seat of the image of jealousy was, which provokes to jealousy. 4And behold, the glory of the Mighty One of Israel was there, like the vision that I saw in the plain.

5Then He said to me, “Son of man, lift your eyes now toward the north.” So I lifted my eyes toward the north, and there, north of the altar gate, was this image of jealousy in the entrance.

6Furthermore He said to me, “Son of man, do you see what they are doing, the great abominations that the house of Israel commits here, to make Me go far away from My sanctuary? Now turn again, you will see greater abominations.” 7So He brought me to the door of the court; and when I looked, there was a hole in the wall. 8Then He said to me, “Son of man, dig into the wall”; and when I dug into the wall, there was a door.

9And He said to me, “Go in, and see the wicked abominations which they are doing there.” 10So I went in and saw, and there—every sort of creeping thing, abominable beasts, and all the idols of the house of Israel, portrayed all around on the walls. 11And there stood before them seventy men of the elders of the house of Israel, and in their midst stood Jaazaniah the son of Shaphan. Each man had a censer in his hand, and a thick cloud of incense went up. 12Then He said to me, “Son of man, have you seen what the elders of the house of Israel do in the dark, every man in the room of his idols? For they say, ‘Yahweh does not see us, Yahweh has forsaken the land.’”

13And He said to me, “Turn again, and you will see greater abominations that they are doing.” 14So He brought me to the door of the north gate of Yahweh’s house; and to my dismay, women were sitting there weeping for Tammuz.

15Then He said to me, “Have you seen this, O son of man? Turn again, you will see greater abominations than these.” 16So He brought me into the inner court of Yahweh’s house; and there, at the door of the temple of Yahweh, between the porch and the altar, were about twenty-five men with their backs toward the temple of Yahweh and their faces toward the east, and they were worshiping the sun toward the east.

17And He said to me, “Have you seen this, O son of man? Is it a trivial thing to the house of Judah to commit the abominations which they commit here? For they have filled the land with violence; then they have returned to provoke Me to anger. Indeed they put the branch to their nose. 18Therefore I also will act in fury. My eye will not spare nor will I have pity; and though they cry in My ears with a loud voice, I will not hear them.””

 

We’re continuing with the connection that Yahweh is making between James 5 and Ezekiel 6-9. James makes it clear that Yeshua’s return is soon. Ezekiel 8 shows us that Yahweh is surrounded by fire, He is a consuming fire, and where He is, it is always very bright. He is our light. Yahweh is preparing to judge the inhabitants of the earth. We should be preparing to meet our Maker. We should be weeping over our sins, not our idols. Do you cry if you break a fingernail? Do you get upset if you drop your cell phone and break it? It’s time to fall on our faces and repent of our rebellions and evil heart attitudes. What used to be order in our world is now crumbling into chaos and anarchy all around us. It’s time to learn to see with your spiritual eyes and stop lusting for things with your physical eyes.

 

Look at verse 11, Ezekiel received a vision of the 70 elders of Israel, the Sanhedrin, the rulers of the land of Israel. Have you heard that the Sanhedrin has once again been reconstituted in modern Israel? They are pressing Israel for recognition and religious authority once again. Without Yeshua guiding them, will they be wicked like in Ezekiel’s day, or righteous? These guys will soon get the altar set up on the Temple Mount and begin the daily oblation offerings once again, for the first time in a couple thousand years. Once these oblation offerings begin again, with or without a Temple, a prophetic clock will start. The Antimessiah will stop these daily oblation offerings to fulfill end time prophecies from the Book of Daniel.

 

Many Christians stumble over the oblation offerings, but they have nothing to do with sin offerings or atonement. The oblations are simply to acknowledge Yahweh and His ownership of everything, including the children of Israel. These offerings are only to recognize Him as our Creator, Great Provider and Sustainer, to acknowledge His sovereignty over everything and everyone in the universe. There is nothing wrong with these offerings taking place after the sacrifice of Yeshua on the execution stake. If and when the Jews try to go back to the old sacrificial system of atoning animal sacrifices, then I believe we will see Yahweh step in, possibly through the Antimessiah. To offer animal or any sacrifices for sin now would be an abomination to Yahweh, since He has offered His Son once for all. Hebrews 9:23-28, “Therefore it was necessary that the copies of the things in the heavens should be purified with these, but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these. 24For Messiah has not entered the holy places made with hands, which are copies of the true, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of Yahweh for us; 25not that He should offer Himself often, as the high priest enters the Most Holy Place every year with blood of another—26He then would have had to suffer often since the foundation of the world; but now, once at the end of the ages, He has appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself (in 30 CE). 27And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment, 28so Messiah was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation.”

 

Another prophetic clock was started back in the 1940s when modern Israel became a nation once again, though they should have called themselves Judah, not Israel. I believe that event, the rebirth of modern Israel, started another clock, Daniel’s 70 Feasts of Weeks, or Shavuot. In 2011 CE, we celebrated the 64th Feast of Weeks of Daniel 9. A little math will show you that we may be in our final 7 year tribulation period. Six more Feast of Weeks and we’ll be at Daniel’s 70th Feast of Weeks in 2017 CE. According to Daniel 9:25, Yeshua should return after the 69th Feast of Weeks, “Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the command to restore and build Jerusalem (spoken command on Nov. 29, 1947, UN Resolution 181) until Messiah the Prince, there shall be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks (69 years or Feasts of Weeks, Shabuwas); the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublesome times.” If Yeshua returns in 2016 CE, wonderful!! If He does not return in 2016 CE, so be it, I misinterpreted Daniel 9 and must readjust my thinking. That does not mean that Yahweh’s word is not true, only our understanding may be off.

 

I may be off, but Yahweh is marvelous. I want to share something with you that should get you really excited. You know I’ve been studying the Hebrew Jubilee calendar for several years now. I recently met a young man on the internet who challenged my idea of a 49-year Jubilee cycle. He believes the 50-year Jubilee cycle is the correct one. I told him I would study some more and try out his idea on my Scriptural chronology spreadsheet. Well, I’ve been doing that for a couple days now. Would you believe, that on both a 49-year and a 50-year Jubilee Cycle, the 69th Feast of Weeks of Daniel 9 occurs during the Sabbatical year of 2016 CE!!!!! The next Sabbatical year begins on Yom Kippur, 2015 CE and ends the next fall on Yom Kippur, 2016 CE. Daniel’s 69th Feast of Weeks occurs DURING this next Sabbatical Year, no matter whether we use a 49-year or a 50-year Jubilee Cycle! I just lay out the numbers, I don’t force anything on these spreadsheets. Figures don’t lie, but liars figure, as the old accountant’s saying goes. My breath is taken away the more I meditate on what I’m looking at. Shavuot, 2016 CE, is during the 69th Feast of Weeks of Daniel 9, no matter which Jubilee calendar we use, a 49-year or a 50-year. It’s a marvelous sign and a wonder to behold. What’s fascinating is that on the 49-year Jubilee Cycle, all the Sabbatical years and Hebrew historical events that occurred during a Sabbatical year LINE UP! BUT, also, on the 50-year Jubilee Cycle, the words of Isaiah 37:30, Isaiah’s Jubilee prophecy to King Hezekiah, the only Jubilee mentioned in prophetic Scripture, make better sense when looked at from a 50-year Jubilee perspective than from the 49-year Jubilee calendar. It’s mind blowing to me, but that’s not all the mind numbing the numbers cause.

 

Following this current 50-year Jubilee Cycle down in time to the next Jubilee, we come to the year 2037 CE. So what, you say? Well, in 2037 CE, the 365-day solar year perfectly synchronizes with the 360-day prophetic year!!! Who could do that at the end of time, but Yahweh? NOBODY!!!

 

After 6,000 years of human history, who but Yahweh could synchronize Sabbatical Years from a 49-year and a 50-year Jubilee Cycle down at the end of time? NOBODY COULD DO THAT BUT YAHWEH!! Is He awesome or what? 2036 CE is the 7th Sabbatical year in the 50-year Jubilee Cycle; Psalm 136 corresponds to 2036 CE. Psalm 136:21-22, “And gave their land as a heritage, for His mercy endures forever; 22A heritage to Israel His servant, for His mercy endures forever.” 2037 CE is the next Jubilee Year according to the 50-year Jubilee calendar; Psalm 137 corresponds to 2037 CE. Psalm 137:7, “Remember, O Yahweh, against the sons of Edom the day of Jerusalem, who said, “Raze it, raze it, to its very foundation!”” According to the 50-year Jubilee Cycle, the first 9 months of 2038 CE will still be in the Jubilee year; Psalm 138 corresponds to 2038, “I will praise You with my whole heart;

Before the gods I will sing praises to You.

2 I will worship toward Your holy temple,

And praise Your name

For Your lovingkindness and Your truth;

For You have magnified Your word above all Your name ([or] for you have magnified above all things your name, by your command).

3 In the day when I cried out, You answered me,

And made me bold with strength in my soul.

4 All the kings of the earth shall praise You, O Yahweh,

When they hear the words of Your mouth.

5 Yes, they shall sing of the ways of Yahweh,

For great is the glory of Yahweh.

6  Though Yahweh is on high,

Yet He regards the lowly;

But the proud He knows from afar.

7  Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me;

You will stretch out Your hand

Against the wrath of my enemies,

And Your right hand will save me.

8  Yahweh will perfect that which concerns me;

Your mercy, O Yahweh, endures forever;

Do not forsake the works of Your hands.”

Praise our blessed King and Redeemer, Yahweh of Hosts, praise His name forever and ever. Do you know what Yahweh is doing while standing at the door? He’s synchronizing His calendars, His clocks!! Why? What do military commanders do just before a big military campaign? They synchronize their watches!! Yahweh is getting ready to invade earth. I hope you’re ready. Don’t believe the LGMs (little green men) in the flying saucers, they’re not Yahweh’s forces. Believe Yahweh and His word, and let’s get ready to rumble, I mean rapture!

 

Now, step back and take a deep breath. The Scriptures show us that Yahweh is One. Yahweh and Yeshua are one. There is no division between them. Brethren, it’s the Father’s will that we be unified as one in Him, whether or not we follow a 49-year or a 50-year Jubilee calendar, whether or not we follow a 365-day or a 360-day per year calendar. Yahweh synchronizes His Kingdom into one holy unit. He’s using several, possibly 5 or more, different divine calendars to bring human history to a close. We are one in Him, so we don’t have to argue over technical differences, especially when it comes to end-time prophecy. Yeshua will return, what more do we need to focus on?

The Singular Disaster

THE SINGULAR DISASTER

 

James 5:1-11, “Come now, you rich, weep and howl for your miseries that are coming upon you! 2Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are moth-eaten. 3Your gold and silver are corroded, and their corrosion will be a witness against you and will eat your flesh like fire. You have heaped up treasure in the last days. 4Indeed the wages of the laborers who mowed your fields, which you kept back by fraud, cry out; and the cries of the reapers have reached the ears of Yahweh of Sabaoth. 5You have lived on the earth in pleasure and luxury; you have fattened your hearts as in a day of slaughter. 6You have condemned, you have murdered the just; he does not resist you.

7Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Master (Yeshua). See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently for it until it receives the early (in Israel, in the fall) and latter rain (in Israel, in the spring). 8You also be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Master (Yeshua) is at hand.

9Do not grumble against one another, brethren, lest you be condemned. Behold, the Judge is standing at the door! 10My brethren, take the prophets, who spoke in the name of Yahweh, as an example of suffering and patience. 11Indeed we count them blessed who endure. You have heard of the perseverance of Job and seen the end intended by Yahweh—that Yahweh is very compassionate and merciful.”

 

Yahweh is tying James 5 together with Ezekiel 6-9. I’m sure we’ve talked about Ezekiel 7 before in an earlier post, but Yahweh brought this to our attention again. “Moreover the word of Yahweh came to me, saying, 2“And you, son of man, thus says Sovereign Yahweh to the land of Israel:

‘An end! The end has come upon the four corners of the land.

3  Now the end has come upon you,

And I will send My anger against you;

I will judge you according to your ways,

And I will repay you for all your abominations.

4  My eye will not spare you,

Nor will I have pity;

But I will repay your ways,

And your abominations will be in your midst;

Then you shall know that I am Yahweh!’

5“Thus says Sovereign Yahweh:

‘A disaster, a singular disaster;

Behold, it has come!

6  An end has come,

The end has come;

It has dawned for you;

Behold, it has come!”

 

Notice carefully what the singular disaster is that Yahweh is talking about. The singular disaster is THE END! This singular disaster known as THE END is soon to sweep the earth. We are at this moment watching the beginnings of THE END. Whether or not THE END, the singular disaster, lasts for a day, a week, or for seven years, it is one disaster in Yahweh’s eyes. The toughest days for humanity are just ahead. I hope you’re ready for the ride.

 

 

7 Doom has come to you, you who dwell in the land;

The time has come,

A day of trouble is near,

And not of rejoicing in the mountains.

8  Now upon you I will soon pour out My fury,

    And spend My anger upon you;

I will judge you according to your ways,

And I will repay you for all your abominations.

9  ‘My eye will not spare,

Nor will I have pity;

I will repay you according to your ways,

And your abominations will be in your midst.

Then you shall know that I am Yahweh who strikes.

10 ‘Behold, the day!

Behold, it has come!

Doom has gone out;

The rod has blossomed,

Pride has budded.

11 Violence has risen up into a rod of wickedness;

None of them shall remain,

None of their multitude,

None of them;

Nor shall there be wailing for them.”

 

Have you seen the news about England burning? Have you heard of the riots in Milwaukee? Have you heard of the new phenomena of the “flash mobs” terrorizing shopkeepers? Hundreds of young people using the social media to organize huge gang robbery of retail stores, rushing into the stores as a mob and stealing whatever and everything they want. Police have yet to find a solution to this new way of armed robbery. Maybe shutting down the internet and cell phone service would be a start.

 

12The time has come,

The day draws near.

‘Let not the buyer rejoice,

Nor the seller mourn,

For wrath is on their whole multitude.

13 For the seller shall not return to what has been sold,

Though he may still be alive;

For the vision concerns the whole multitude,

And it shall not turn back;

No one will strengthen himself

Who lives in iniquity.

14 ‘They have blown the trumpet and made everyone ready,

But no one goes to battle;

For My wrath is on all their multitude.

15 The sword is outside,

    And the pestilence and famine within.

Whoever is in the field

Will die by the sword;

And whoever is in the city,

Famine and pestilence will devour him.”

 

We’ve posted before about the soon-coming famines and food riots in the cities. Famine is beginning to sweep the world. As the former civilized world comes apart at the seams, the cities will be a very unsafe place to be. All I can do is encourage you to flee the cities to rural communities. Once World War III pops, it will probably be too late to flee the cities. The Scriptures have warned us of these last days, from cover to cover. It’s time to hear and heed Yahweh’s warnings. It’s time to humble ourselves and cry over our own inquity and sin, then pray for our friends, family, and neighbors. It’s time to repent of SIN.

 

16   ‘Those who survive will escape and be on the (Rocky?) mountains

Like doves of the valleys,

All of them mourning,

Each for his iniquity.

17 Every hand will be feeble,

And every knee will be as weak as water.

18 They will also be girded with sackcloth;

Horror will cover them;

Shame will be on every face,

Baldness on all their heads.”

 

For whatever reason, Yahweh has called us to the Rocky Mountains. He keeps telling us that someone has to live in the cold high country. We keep telling all who will listen to get ready for the stuff hitting the fan (SHTF). Not everyone can hang out at the beach, though I would love a cottage on a warm hurricane free beach. When the cities explode, hundreds, if not thousands, of people will pour up into these hills looking for safety and answers. We’re here, so stop by and say hi.

 

19   ‘They will throw their silver into the streets,

And their gold will be like refuse;

Their silver and their gold will not be able to deliver them

In the day of the wrath of Yahweh;

They will not satisfy their souls,

Nor fill their stomachs,

Because it became their stumbling block of iniquity.

20 ‘As for the beauty of his ornaments,

He set it in majesty;

But they made from it

The images of their abominations—

Their detestable things;

Therefore I have made it

Like refuse to them.

21 I will give it as plunder

Into the hands of strangers,

And to the wicked of the earth as spoil;

And they shall defile it.

22 I will turn My face from them,

And they will defile My secret place;

For (flash) robbers shall enter it and defile it.

23 ‘Make a chain,

For the land is filled with crimes of blood,

And the city is full of violence.

24  Therefore I will bring the worst of the Gentiles,

And they will possess their houses;

I will cause the pomp of the strong to cease,

And their holy places shall be defiled.

25  Destruction comes;

They will seek peace, but there shall be none.”

 

Wow, and I thought the world was plenty full of violence. Yahweh says it will get worse. The beast nature will have its day, just before Yahweh destroys it.

 

26  Disaster will come upon disaster,

And rumor will be upon rumor.

Then they will seek a vision from a prophet;

But the law will perish from the priest,

And counsel from the elders.

27 ‘The king will mourn,

The prince will be clothed with desolation,

And the hands of the common people will tremble.

I will do to them according to their way,

And according to what they deserve I will judge them;

Then they shall know that I am Yahweh!’””

 

Yahweh is coordinating upon this earth the final, singular disaster for mankind. The Judge is coming to judge, not parley with His enemies. This is the moment to become Yahweh’s friend, or son; please do not remain His enemy. History has shown, especially Hebrew history, that Yahweh is well able to humble and destroy His enemies. You just have to read the Book. It’s time to get right with Yahweh, make sure your name remains in the Book of Life. You want your account ledger wiped clean, not one sin remaining. Yeshua’s blood is the only thing that will do the job. His blood is the great sin eraser. I suggest you start talking to Him today and ask Him to forgive you of all your sin and make you clean. It used to sound corny to hear preachers say turn or burn sinner! But the closer we get to Judgment Day, the more it makes sense. Turn from your wicked ways and wicked self and turn to Yahweh through faith in Yeshua. NOW!

$211 Trillion Iceberg of Debt

$14 TRILLION TIP ON A $211 TRILLION ICEBERG OF DEBT

 

This just in from the National Public Radio via www.thetrumpet.com in their weekly e-newsletter:

 

A National Debt of $14

Trillion? Try $211 Trillion

“When  Standard  & Poor’s reduced the nation’s credit rating from

AAA  to AA-plus, the United States suffered the first downgrade

to its credit rating ever. S&P took this action despite the plan

Congress passed this past week to raise the debt limit.

The downgrade, S&P said, “reflects our opinion that the fiscal con-

solidation plan that Congress and the administration recently agreed

to falls short of what, in our view, would be necessary to stabilize the

government’s medium-term debt dynamics.”

It’s those medium- and long-term debt problems that also worry

economics professor Laurence J. Kotlikoff …. He says the national debt, which the U.S. Treasury has accounted at about $14 trillion, is just the tip of the iceberg. “We have all these unofficial debts that are massive compared to the official debt …. We’re focused just on the official debt, so we’re trying to balance the wrong books.”

Kotlikoff explains that America’s “unofficial” payment obligations—

like Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid benefits—jack up the debt

figure substantially. “If you add up all the promises that have been

made for spending obligations, including defense expenditures, and you subtract all the taxes that we expect to collect, the difference is $211 trillion. That’s the fiscal gap,” he says. “That’s our true indebtedness.”

“We’ve got 78 million baby boomers who are poised to collect, in

about 15 to 20 years, about $40,000 per person. Multiply 78 million by

$40,000—you’re talking about more than $3 trillion a year just to give

to a portion of the population,” he says. …

To eliminate the fiscal gap, Kotlikoff says, the U.S. would have to

“either immediately and permanently raise taxes by about two thirds,

or immediately and permanently cut every dollar of spending by 40

percent forever.””

 

Didn’t I just tell you last week than any American small-business bookkeeper or accountant with a pencil and a calculator could balance the Nation’s Books in an afternoon. Just simply cut 50% from every line item in the budget. Cutting $900 million from the budget by INCREASING SPENDING $7 TRILLION RATHER THAN $8 TRILLION, OVER THE NEXT 10 YEARS, just DOES NOT CUT IT!!!! Our national leaders are out of touch with reality, that’s why America will fall financially. America is already falling morally. What you see happening in Great Britain with their rage riots, will soon reach our shores. It’s already happening in Milwaukee, Chicago, and Philadelphia. We are collapsing into anarchy, just in time to meet Yeshua! Glory!!

 

Isaiah 30:25-33, “There will be on every high mountain

And on every high hill

Rivers and streams of waters,

In the day of the great slaughter,

When the towers fall. (Anyone remember way back to September 11, 2011???)

26 Moreover the light of the moon will be as the light of the sun,

And the light of the sun will be sevenfold,

As the light of seven days,

In the day that Yahweh binds up the bruise of His people

And heals the stroke of their wound.

27 Behold, the name of Yahweh comes from afar,

    Burning with His anger,

And His burden is heavy;

His lips are full of indignation,

And His tongue like a devouring fire.

28 His breath is like an overflowing stream,

Which reaches up to the neck,

To sift the nations with the sieve of futility;

And there shall be a bridle in the jaws of the people,

Causing them to err.

29 You shall have a song

As in the night when a holy festival is kept,

And gladness of heart as when one goes with a flute,

To come into the mountain of Yahweh,

To the Mighty One of Israel.

30 Yahweh will cause His glorious voice to be heard,

And show the descent of His arm,

With the indignation of His anger

And the flame of a devouring fire,

With scattering, tempest, and hailstones.

31 For through the voice of Yahweh

Assyria (Germany) will be beaten down,

As He strikes with the rod.

32 And in every place where the staff of punishment passes,

Which Yahweh lays on him,

It will be with tambourines and harps;

And in battles of brandishing He will fight with it.

33 For Tophet was established of old,

Yes, for the king it is prepared.

He has made it deep and large;

Its pyre is fire with much wood;

The breath of Yahweh, like a stream of brimstone,

Kindles it.”

 

Did Yeshua not tell us in Luke 21:11 that there would be signs in the heavens around the time of His return? Yes, He did . . . “And there will be great earthquakes in various places, and famines and pestilences; and there will be fearful sights and great signs from heaven.” One of those signs will be bright light, according to verse 26 above. Can you imagine what a sevenfold increase in the sun’s light upon earth would do to humans, plants, and animals? Think microwave power. Take a look at that phrase “seven days”. We have lived through about 6,000 years of human history, or 6 days on Yahweh’s calendar. That leaves day seven of 1,000 years of Yeshua’s reign on earth, which will be seven times brighter than the first 6 days. Yeshua will destroy His enemies with the brightness of His coming. 2 Thessalonians 2:8, “And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Master will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming.”

 

Why is the Father’s burden heavy while Yeshua’s burden is light? The Father has to judge His children; Brother Yeshua does not have to do that, He’s our Savior Redeemer. There are so many Scriptures that state that Yahweh is angry. Is that a sin? No. His anger is righteous indignation towards sin that is destroying His children. The Day of Judgment is coming soon. Yahweh will balance the books of life, sin versus grace. I pray you are found on the grace side.

 

If you don’t believe Germany is rising again in power, pull your head out of your . . . sandbox! They have a part to play one more time in human history. Germany is rapidly rising in the European Union, they have benefited by America’s credit downgrade. The nations of earth are spending too much time worrying about how to fix their economies, when they should be concerned about fixing the hearts of their people. Yeshua is coming back to finish His fight with the Devil and sin. It will soon be over, done. He came the first time to save men’s souls, He’s coming the second time to destroy men’s nations. Men’s souls will be judged at the end of the 1,000 years, at the end of the 7th day of Yahweh’s creation calendar.

 

Yahweh destroyed the earth once by water, in the days of Noah. Yeshua said the end of time will be like in the days of Noah, except for destruction by water. This time around it’s going to be destruction by fire. Luke 12:49, “I came to send fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled!” Look at verse 33 above; are Yahweh and Yeshua on the same page when it comes to judging by fire? I believe so.

 

The Department of Defense is telling us that the world is preparing for war. It may take a few more years of saber-rattling, but the end-time nation alignments are taking place right before our eyes. The kings of the north and south are lining up. It’s all about choosing. I pray you all choose Yahweh’s side. He has a perfect record of wins so far, and I would say He will be victorious in the Battle of Armageddon also.

 

We can never pay off our national debt; we can never pay off our sin debt. Father forgive us for we know not what we do. Keep looking up and pray for the peace of Jerusalem and the rest of the world.

Don’t Sweat the Small Comet

Here’s a comment Charles Wheeling received after sending out several articles on the soon coming Comet Elenin:

-Charles Wheeling Says, “Here is an interesting comment regarding the article we posted on our E-News, August 8A, 2011 regarding Comet Elenin.”

 

Dear Charles,

 

“As an astronomer relying on my understanding of stellar mechanics and also professional astronomers I can assure you and your subscribers that the affect from the comet, Elenin, will be no greater than (as they say) a mosquito hitting a windshield of the cruise ship in the ocean.

 

“Just consider: planet Mars, which is 11% of Earth mass, comes as close as 0.38 au to the Earth every 15-17 years.  Planet Venus, which is heavier than Mars (82% of Earth mass) gets even closer — 0.27 au to the Earth every 584 days. . . note, almost as close as dreaded Miskito comet (billions times lighter then Venus or Earth) is anticipated to come.  Moon, at 12% of Earth mass spins around us on ‘frightening’ distance of 0.003 au and all we get are tides and some other core effects.  Simple math — 0.25 (Earth-Comet) au divide 0.003 au (Earth-Moon) equals over 80 times farther.

 

“Now according to square law, the effect from a body the size of the Moon on such a distance would be 80 in second power less, i.e., 6400 times less. Now multiply that on the difference in mass between Moon and Comet . . . ok, I will give you a generous 1,000,000 times . . . you see the effect from the comet Elenin will be billions times less than the effect of the Moon, Venus, Mars and all rest of the planets put together . . .

 

“Rest assured, if anything is going to happen this fall it won’t be because of the comet Elenin.

 

Blessing,

V ”
