DELUSION IS NOW IN PROGRESS
Nicolaitan-- Above the people, master the people, or rule the people.
Laodicean-- Rule OF the people, BY the people, and FOR the people, Anarchy, glibly called Democracy.
Democracy ALWAYS COMES TO THIS-- A SELF-DESTRUCTIVE WAR BETWEEN THE ELITE AND THE MASSES.
The following is the account, in the Bible book of The Revelation, from Christ to the Apostle John, the last book in the Bible. There are seven churches addressed, and they were all very real churches in about 70 AD. They also represent seven kinds of churches in Christendom in the End Times, which is the overall theme of this book. You may be able to identify most of the church types from your own sojourn in this age.
I want you to see the characteristics of the Nicolaitans and the Laodiceans. They are two forces at war with each other, and Christ talks about them in this revelation. Though this is a discussion of war in the Lord's Church, this passage also gives a very graphic picture of the two forces that bring us to the threshold of the last act in human history.
Revelation 2:1 Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks;
2 I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars:
3 And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name's sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted.
4 Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.
5 Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.
6 But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.
7 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.
8 And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive;
9 I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.
10 Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.
11 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.
12 And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges;
13 I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan's seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth.
14 But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication.
15 So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate.
16 Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.
17 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.
18 And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass;
19 I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first.
20 Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.
21 And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.
22 Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.
23 And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.
24 But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden.
25 But that which ye have already hold fast till I come.
26 And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:
27 And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father.
28 And I will give him the morning star.
29 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
Revelation 3:1 And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead.
2 Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God.
3 Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.
4 Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy.
5 He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.
6 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
7 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth;
8 I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.
9 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.
10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.
11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.
12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.
13 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
14 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;
15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.
22 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
You need to understand that in the Bible text we started with, there is no indication that the Laodicians would not be given Strong Delusion along with the Nicolaitans. For this reason, both parties are deluded, both are addicted to acquisition and greed, and both fully believe they will win the war against the other. Since the White Race is not the center of attention in the End Times, I have to wonder if the destiny of the White Race is to self-destruct. The exception is Gog and Magog, Russia, who figure into the very end game of prophecy, even raising an army against Christ at the end of the one thousand year Messianic reign. They are finally totally destroyed then. The rest of the White Race is toast. Even Iran, the ongoing boogie man as I write, has a slightly better destiny than the USA, that is, in Bible prophecy.
The above Bible text above the Laodiceans are said to be neither hot nor cold. This is the age we now live in, and we can see that Christendom worldwide has been spewed (vomited), as Christ predicted. Alleged churches are full of greed, wickedness, and they are nearly totally raped of their old biblical heritage by the modern gurus of the mega churches.
I must deal also with the two deeper motivations of the Nicolaitans and the Laodiceans. BOTH of them have two driving forces-- money, and power over one another. These two driving forces are the foundation of ALL the chaos we see today, and they will only increase. But, I have watched these two forces since about 1970, and I have come to see that one motivation wins out over the other. While the world elite, the Hidden Hand, want to take power over the masses, if the cash flow wanes for a time, they postpone the New World Order for a while, and they get busy trying to get the bottom line up again. This is going on big time right now in early 2012 all over the developed world. I am not so clever really. God told us this is the way of wicked men every time:
1 Timothy 6:10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
So, if you keep this in mind, and with God's divine guidance, you can stop back, watch the mob struggle one against the other, and you can see trends. Once you identify a trend by using the Word of God, you can set in motion a strategy for your family and your local church. If you are in a mega church, forget it-- money and power are THE foundation of the mega church. They are literally toast, doomed, as we arrive at the end of the Church Age.
So , the nature of two forces is now very busy-- Nicolaitan and Laodicean-- lust for money, and lust for power. The rulers above are trying to take control of the lives of all men, and the sheeple below are trying to throw off this tyranny. In the process these two entities are at literal war as rebellion is met with toys to bribe the sheeple, and with regulations to herd the Laodiceans into a submissive mob. The riots around the world are almost all related to income, taxes, and getting cheaper stuff.
One great distraction to unite the Laodiceans and cause them not to detect the Nicolaitan Hidden Hand at work, is the stampede. Let us talk about that.
Texas History-- The Stampede
In the days of the cattle drives in the late 1800s, from south Texas and north to Canada, the most deadly and frightening risk in moving cattle to market was the stampede. The cowboys had to stop it or lose the cattleman's fortune. If they let the cattle run and run without stopping the stampede, the cattle lost weight and had to graze longer the next day. An experienced trail boss, and at the orders of the owner himself, they would intentionally move the cattle slow so that they could graze much of the day. The greener grass farther north actually added weight to the Texas cattle that might have just come through a lean winter in south Texas.
When the cattle stand up in the middle of the night, a stampede is about to happen. That is what terrified the night watch cowboy in the cattle drive days of Texas. When he sensed the cattle were restless,the cowboy would start singing tunes that were called the "cowboy's lullaby." Almost all cowboys were religious, and they would "get religion" and sing "Amazing Grace" and "Power in the Blood" as well. Anything that worked.
The clammy darkness of a moonless night, especially as the lightning and thunder of an approaching storm came closer and closer and the barometric pressure dropped, played havoc on the cattle's senses. The snap of a stick, or a the cough of a sleeping cowboy in the night could start a stampede. Muggy weather, unfamiliar surroundings, or the howl of a wolf could add to the panic of the steers.
Some nervous bull would snort, start running, and the whole herd would take off and head in an unpredictable direction.
During a stampede, some cattle fell in the mindless frenzy and were killed, and even cowboys were killed because they ran their horses so hard in the dark night and took terrible risks. To just let the cattle run wild until they tired out meant that for the next day, and maybe another, the cowboys would all scatter across the prairie for miles in all directions trying to find the whole herd. So, the cowboy wanted to stop the stampede fast, and he took lots of risks doing it.
By the early 1900s there were mounds of rocks from Brownsville, Texas to Cheyenne, Wyoming where cowboys fell trying to turn a stampede, and their horse fell in front of the herd.
When the stampede actually began, the cowboy had a quirk like a short whip made of woven leather. He snapped it in front of the cattle as they ran wild. This would not stop them, but it would "turn the herd" eventually. The cowboy would also shoot his six shooter in front of the herd to frighten them to turn the herd. He would never start shooting steers though. The cowboys knew that eventually, if the herd did not run over a cliff, they could turn them and calm them all down again.
Once the cattle stampede turned, though they ran and ran, they would eventually turn into a mill. This meant all the cattle would run in a big circle. This gave the cattle the sensation that they were running free, when in fact they were under total control. This slowed the stampede, and let the cattle run in circles until exhausted. The danger of a mill was to keep it from getting too tight when the cattle would trample the ones in the center of the mill. Eventually, they stopped, grazed a while, and lay down to sleep again until dawn.
If you miss the point of this real life account, you are brain dead. Virtually every aspect of this story has an application to World War III and our frightening economic chaos worldwide, and the stampede is just beginning. The Nicolaitans are the cowboys, and we flatlanders are the cattle. They will not kill us, but they will turn us into a mill until we go to sleep again.
The masses and asses are standing in the night snorting and blowing. The Nicolaitans are singing sweet songs of "change and hope" to the Laodiceans. Party politics is set aside eventually, and the Nicolaitans all join forces world wide to try to prevent the stampede. All that is needed if for someone on high to cough too loud or step on a dead stick, and the stamped is off.
Round 'em up, head 'em out, turn 'em in, bed 'em down......
Which cattle survived the stampede best?
Answer-- The mavericks that hid deep in brushy country south of San Antonio, just before round up, and went unnoticed or were simply too much trouble to find. Will you join the stampede, or will you head for cover and wait it out?
Think "occupy," think "Arab spring." Think Anonymous..... What is their destiny? Who is really in charge? Who is out yonder in the Brushy Country or a billabong in the outback?
What is the final end of a cattle drive? Answer: The bologna factory in Chicago.
Here is a classic form of herding of the sheeple..... Are you a victim?
An article at this journal on stampedes by a Black journalist in Indianapolis. Mike Remey discusses stampedes as weapons, and this is a rare observation and a true one. Must read.
?As you know, the media is very badly needed to serve as a thorn in the side of government. In order to keep the government reasonably honest we need the media to be constantly poking at it. However, when the media becomes a thorn in the side of the skeptical private citizen, then it becomes an arm of the government. That's why I say, "Beware the Government-Media Complex." Michael Savage
Psalms 141:10 Let the wicked fall into their own nets, whilst that I withal escape.
1. How are government regulations herding us? Change light bulbs, whisper only politically correct platitudes. Guns kill people.
2. How is the medical world and Big Pharma herding us? Staten drugs, flu shots, vaccinations-- 58 doses of them.
3. What myths from politicians might we believe? Change and hope, save the Constitution, poverty is the fault of the rich.
4. Do I have a source of good skeptical friends, or am I part of the gullible mob?
5. Do I know enough past world history and biblical history to diagnose this sick world and avoid becoming part of the problem instead of being part of the solution?
6. Do I read anything these days that illuminates this scene, or am I feasting on panic mongers and corrupted media news?
Both the Nidolaitans and the Laodiceans have their favorite myths. Do you believe things that totally violate the Word of God? Remember, we learned above that God HATES the Nicolaitans, and he PUCKS the Laodiceans.
Are you a Philadelphian? Are you willing to be peculiar to both forces of mad man?
The New World Order Eugenics perpetrators of this ongoing holocaust imagine they are on their way to a Utopia where the world will have abundance for the few left. They also imagine that they will be the Great Nanny of the masses and asses beneath them.
God is not amused by men who try to climb into his throne and be, de facto, the god of the universe, especially if they step on the heads of his children on their way up. So, God will send Jesus Christ, BEFORE HIS KINGDOM REIGN, to invite the world elite above to a battle where they will self-destruct. This invitation by Christ will not be openly delivered to them personally-- it will be delivered by Satan through the Antichrist and the false prophet who have Christ's permission to deceive all of humanity.
The leaders of all nations will become totally deluded until they think they can win the last great war. They will come from the East, Russia, and virtually all nations to kill one another, and they will all think they can win. It sounds crazy to people now who think of themselves as cautious and wise, but the world has never seen "strong delusion" like this before. The US Military plays with mind control weapons, but they are about to be the target of the ultimate weapon-- the power of God to control minds so that they believe Satan. Deluded power mongers cannot tolerate sharing their mongrel kingdom, and God, in the Bible, describes this final mother of all wars.
While the saints are in Heaven preparing to return with Christ, the armies of the earth gather toward Jerusalem. They are nspired and led by Satan, the Antichrist and False prophet who have deceived the nations. The Bible prophet Joel writes about this day as the nations gather.
Joel 3:9 Proclaim ye this among the Gentiles; Prepare war, wake up the mighty men, let all the men of war draw near; let them come up:
10 Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruninghooks into spears: let the weak say, I am strong.
11 Assemble yourselves, and come, all ye heathen, and gather yourselves together round about: thither cause thy mighty ones to come down, O LORD.
12 Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about.
13 Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the fats overflow; for their wickedness is great.
14 Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision.
Revelation 16:8 And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire.
9 And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.
10 And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain,
11 And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.
12 And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.
13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.
14 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.
15 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.
16 And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.
As the armies of the earth gather around the land of Israel, and approach the hills of Megiddo, they prepare for battle against God Almighty, deceived by Satan, the Antichrist (The Beast) and the False Prophet. Terrified Israel calls out for redemption and salvation to Christ, their Messiah. Its at this point of national conversion, Christ comes to the rescue of a repentant Israel.
If you are one of the mass who stampede, you now know how it will end. As with long ago in cattle drives from Texas to Kansas, some stampedes ended when the cattle smelled water and stampeded to a river, only to find they were on a cliff over a river. They could not stop themselves and went over the edge to drown.
Next, we discuss a better ending.
WILL THERE BE A HAPPY ENDING?
The ongoing escalation economic chaos, along with the all pervasive One World obsession in the heart of national leaders and academics, AND the pounding persistence of the major media to comply with the Hidden Hand will temp us to believe that nothing can stop the juggernaut on its way to squash us all into the pavement as it passes on. But, there IS a happy ending. No man on earth is clever enough and rich enough to outsmart God, nor will they buy him off.
[ Did you ever wonder what a juggernaut is? Watch this old video of one.
I think of the media when I see the musicians playing the cymbals. Did you
see the big wheels under the juggernaut? In past years, frenzied worshippers
would throw themselves under the wheels and squashed to death honor the gods.]
Here is the description of the events immediately following the two texts quoted above:
Zechariah 14:1 Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee.
2 For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.
3 Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.
4 And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.
5 And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the LORD my God shall come, and all the saints with thee.
6 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light shall not be clear, nor dark:
7 But it shall be one day which shall be known to the LORD, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light.
8 And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be.
9 And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one.
10 All the land shall be turned as a plain from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem: and it shall be lifted up, and inhabited in her place, from Benjamin's gate unto the place of the first gate, unto the corner gate, and from the tower of Hananeel unto the king's winepresses.
11 And men shall dwell in it, and there shall be no more utter destruction; but Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited.
12 And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.
13 And it shall come to pass in that day, that a great tumult from the LORD shall be among them; and they shall lay hold every one on the hand of his neighbour, and his hand shall rise up against the hand of his neighbour.
14 And Judah also shall fight at Jerusalem; and the wealth of all the heathen round about shall be gathered together, gold, and silver, and apparel, in great abundance.
15 And so shall be the plague of the horse, of the mule, of the camel, and of the ass, and of all the beasts that shall be in these tents, as this plague.
16 And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles.
17 And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain.
18 And if the family of Egypt go not up, and come not, that have no rain; there shall be the plague, wherewith the LORD will smite the heathen that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.
19 This shall be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all nations that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.
20 In that day shall there be upon the bells of the horses, HOLINESS UNTO THE LORD; and the pots in the LORD'S house shall be like the bowls before the altar.
21 Yea, every pot in Jerusalem and in Judah shall be holiness unto the LORD of hosts: and all they that sacrifice shall come and take of them, and seethe therein: and in that day there shall be no more the Canaanite in the house of the LORD of hosts.
The end of the age we are now entering will find that God's people will live in a world where everything is holy, even the cooking pots, and every horse will have "holiness to the Lord" engraved in its bridle. What a reward for those who suffered through the Last Days. And, the Eugenists will be the ones to die horrible deaths.
If this seems like a fairy tale, it is because you are not born again by faith in Jesus Christ. Thus, you watch these events like a horror movie, somehow believing that those magic words "THE END" will suddenly appear on the screen, and you will walk out, go have a beer, and laugh it all off.
Deluded-- you stand watching the final act of human history, an act that God predicted 2500 years ago, and you have a dumb stare on your face. Pity you my friend.
We need to review the nations involved in the End Times.
Israel was prophesied to be restored to its land clear back at the time it went into captivity about 500 BC. I will not take the time here to review all the major and minor prophets who spoke about the return. Only a flaming Covenant theologian would try to prove that Israel was not to return to the land. Thus, Israel became a nation again in 1948 about 2500 years after being taken into Babylon and Syria in captivity. The return of Israel started a process of shifting of world national relationships that is almost complete and ready for the Last Days of the Bible.
Kansas will not be the center of the world much longer. The nations of the earth use the US dollar, and the US throws its weight around and demands that smaller nations comply with all manner of US notions of what constitutes fairness and safety. Europe is in complicity with the USA in this pattern.
But, once the US dollar devalues, the world will flee from it, and the US economy will crash fast. This is in its beginning stages as I write. This will result in the whole world turning against the USA. Many national leaders around the world are fed up with the US bankers and institutions which loan money and then take them hostage. When they rebel, the CIA goes into these nations and destabilizes them and even assassinates their leaders. There is a reservoir of hate around the world for the USA.
God could also add a natural disaster great enough to virtually shut down the USA in minutes. An asteroid-- one is on the way from the other side of the sun. It will not be seen until maybe eight hours before it rushes by the sun, and then past the earth. Or, a solar flare of the X-20 size would trash all technology, especially if a magnetic field collapse occurred at the same time. Evolutionists claim that these come only every 60,000 years. An X-12 solar flare hit the earth in 1889, and it loaded telegraph wires so much that many of they melted down. Consider transistors and our modern AC Power grid being turned to sand. The biblical calendar would tell us that such events could happen at any time. The fact that scientists are chattering about this and speculating as to what the USA must do to "get ready" tells me they may know more than they are telling us.
Next, consider Ezekiel 38
Ezekiel 38:1 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
2 Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him,
3 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:
4 And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords:
5 Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet:
6 Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee.
7 Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them.
8 After many days thou shalt be visited: in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them.
9 Thou shalt ascend and come like a storm, thou shalt be like a cloud to cover the land, thou, and all thy bands, and many people with thee.
10 Thus saith the Lord GOD; It shall also come to pass, that at the same time shall things come into thy mind, and thou shalt think an evil thought:
11 And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates,
12 To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land.
13 Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto thee, Art thou come to take a spoil? hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil?
Preterists try to make Gog and Magog into some obscure nation between Russia and Israel. The problem is, Turkey and other nations in that area are mentioned with other names in Bible history and prophecy. Gog and Magog have been known for centuries to be the northern empire of the End Times. Moscow is on the very same longitude as Jerusalem. Russia is clearly the nation being spoken of in Ezekiel.
Bible teachers see this as in invasion to conquer Israel from the get go. I personally have come to see a problem with this assumption. Verse 7 above says, "be thou a guard unto them." Guard whom? Perhaps the other nations coming down to Israel, but I know from a contact in Russia that Russia, Israel, and China have a mutual defense alliance signed, and it was a result of NATO threatening to attack Israel the same way NATO did Bosnia. Recently, China and Israel have been cutting deals in trade, including arms deals, and Russia is strangely silent in recent years on the Israeli / Arab troubles. I have come to believe that Russia starts out south with the intention of defending Israel. Verse 10 indicates that after coming like a storm to defend Israel, Russia realize what a plum they would have if they simply took possession of Israel, and they try to do so.
Verse 13 indicates that Europe calls Russia up on their behavior, but they do nothing to stop the invasion. It is glaringly obvious that the USA is totally unable to either defend Israel nor even question Russia. This is a blatant clue by God that the USA is not in the picture of world events, nor is the USA available to help Israel. With the alliance now in place, and with back room relations with Russia in a positive posture, if the USA were to collapse, and the dollar devalue to rubbish, Israel would have few if any friends to defend her.
We are, it seems to me, VERY near this point, and I assume that predictions of US economic crisis are upon us now, for our national debt is presently a terminal suicide process that none of the financial gurus can stop.
To Bible believers who are literal about prophetic events these should be very exciting days. To Covenant and Reformed people who play tricks with literal prophetic Bible passages, I suspect these are ho hum days. To you I suggest that you bookmark this page-- your domini will never admit to these trends and events, even as they happen. You will NEED biblical literalists to show you the way. I will be here, and I will be happy to give you a crash course in great expectations.
To those of you in other White Race nations, your destiny is only a little less bleak than the USA. You will participate in the final acts of prophecy, but only as a bystander. The nature of Strong Delusion, as God gives it, is to level humanity to the point where ALL men have to look UP for hope. Those who are not consumed by suicidal, war, famine, plague, and Antichrist himself, will one day look up in total helplessness, and see.....
Matthew 24:29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
Question: Does God have any reason to deliver you from the Great Tribulation to come?
God will NOT help those who bank on anything they have invented.
