Peace, peace is the cry of the world today as it faces turmoil of biblical proportion. What is really happening world widely that so many people are committing suicide in a hopeless state of mind? Can you separate what’s happening in these days from the prophecies written in the Bible? No, you cannot. YAHSHUA, when answering the disciples’ questions concerning the end of time, said this as a sign of His coming, among many other things: And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars; see that you are not frightened or troubled, for this must take place, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, a d there will be famines and earthquakes in place after place; all this is but the beginning of the birth pangs (Matt. 24:6-8). There is a cry out there coming from the hearts of men for the normality of things, when there will no longer be as it was just two years ago. No one expected that a manmade virus would control the destiny of the world, much less that it would linger with vaccine, mandated vaccine and passport vaccine. When will it ever end? A question everyone asks anxiously wanting to see the end of the ordeal. One thing we did not realize was that what’s happening today is the result of many years the few who controls the world have been planning in the pursuit to depopulate the world from billions to five hundred million. An evil plan coming from Satan himself, performed by those who follow him. This is definitely a scary time for those who do not know God neither His word. The Bible is filled with fulfilled and unfulfilled prophecies in God’s watch. The prophets of old did not see what they prophesized; because although, some prophecies were to be fulfilled in a short time, others had a long span of weighting time for them to be fulfilled.
Nations are unsettled and will continue to be until God supernaturally intervenes their plan, and these people will be judged for the slaughter of many who took the vaccine. Used to be cradled in comfort and peace, nations are found shocked at what is happening. Why do the nations assemble with commotion, and why do the people imagine an empty scheme? (Psalm 2:1) For sure this verse describes the world’s situation of today. The chaos created by the few to bring about their “empty scheme” will not prevail, although it looks as though it has. Our God is not limited to impossibilities of problems. He shines then, because there is nothing impossible for Him. One of several examples concerning God’s unlimited power is found in II Kings in the fourteenth year of Hezekiah’s reign over Judah, when the king of Assyria came up against the cities of Judah and took them. All seemed to be impossible for King Hezekiah to overcome such power, as the king of Assyria defiantly challenged him. But King Hezekiah found a place of comfort in the presence of the Lord, when he went there to pray. The message came to him from the Prophet Isaiah saying, Thus says the Lord: Do not be afraid because of the words you have heard, with which the servants of the king of Assyria have reviled and blasphemed Me. King Hezekiah prayed: O Lord our God, I beseech You, save us out of his hand, that all the kingdoms of the earth may know and understand that You, O Lord, are God alone (II kings19). The Lord heard King Hezekiah’s prayer and supernaturally delivered Judah from the hands of Assyria’s king.
“For you have not come to a mountain that can be touched, that is ablaze with fire, and to gloom and darkness and a raging storm, and to the blast of a trumpet and a voice whose words make the listeners beg that nothing more be said to them” (Hebrews 12:18-19); “but rather, you have come to Mount Zion, even to the city of the living YAHWEH, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to countless multitudes of angels in festal gathering, to the assembly of the first born whose names have been written in heaven, to YAHWEH, who is the judge of all, to the spirits of righteous people made perfect, to YAHSHUA, and to the sprinkled blood, which says better things that the blood of Abel” (Vs.22-24).
The difference between the experience at Mount Zion and Mount Sinai is worth noting for us to realize the wonderful grace of God toward us. When God came down to Mount Sinai to meet the people of Israel, He came expressing vehemently His holiness through fire, in a dense and black cloud that enveloped the mountain. At that time, He declared His covenant with the people and gave them the Ten Commandments. At that time, Israel had a glimpse of the extent of the holiness of God; and not being able to bear it, they begged Moses to speak to them, instead.
and the earth shall be utterly laid
waste and utterly pillaged; for the Lord
has said this (Vs.3). This chapter of Isaiah is a mini book of Revelation.
Throughout the Old Testament God’s future judgements are predicted ultimately
to destroy the earth and its wicked people with it. It is His final measure to
deal with the stubborn, rebellious people. When this period of grace is past,
His wrath will dominate the world and none who have rejected Him will escape.
It will be merciless, with vengeance and no turning back. We see in this
chapter, the character of His judgements, and the extent of it in verses 1-3:
The scope of His judgements will include all peoples and all class of people.
It shall be with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with
this master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with
the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the creditor, so
with the debtor. No class of people will
escape with the exception of those who have accepted Him. YAHSHUA said, For it
will come upon all who live upon the face of the entire earth. But for those
who have accepted Him He gave a word of warning: Keep awake then and watch at
all times, praying that you may have the full strength and ability to escape
all these things, that will take place, and to stand in the presence of the Son
of Man (Luke 21:35-36).
Lord spoke to the Prophet Amos saying, I will not pass by and spare them
anymore. He was finished warning the nation of Israel, due to their hardness of
heart. In their exit from Egypt, Israel experienced God’s protection in every
way they needed. They escaped all the plagues applied to Egypt, and even the
last one, which was the death of all the firstborn sons. By the blood of the
sacrificial lamb, upon the doorpost of their houses, their sons were spared from
death. That was a token or a sign that when God saw the blood He would “Pass over”
the nation of Israel and no plague would destroy them. God’s mercy is available
in the opportunities that come to us. Its door has been opened for a long time
for all to enter because our God is longsuffering. He desires that all be
saved. There is no limit to His mercy while its door is opened. God’s mercy is
such that can never be compared to human’s mercy in the fullest extent of it. Webster dictionary describes mercy as: refraining
from punishing offenders, enemies, persons in one’s power; kindness in excess
of what may be expected or demanded by fairness; forbearance and compassion;
the power to forgive, clemency, etc.
For just in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and being given in marriage, until the day when Noah went into the ark, and they did not know or understand until the flood came and swept them all away….(Matt. 24: 38-39)
They did not know, consequently, they suffered. The phrase, They did not know implies lack of knowledge about something. Or does it? One can hear something without giving heed, or paying attention to, or not believing it. YAHSHUA uses this as an illustration in Matthews 7: 24-27. He said, So everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts upon them will be like a sensible man who built his house upon the rock. And the rain fell and the floods came and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. And everyone who hears these words of Mine and does not do them will be like a stupid man who built his house upon the sand. And the rain fell and the floods came and the winds blew and beat against that house and it fell and great and complete was the fall of it. These two men heard the message. One acted upon it and was saved; the other ignored and suffered the consequences because his heart was hard. They both heard, they both had a choice to accept or not, and both made their decision.
wonderful book of Ephesians is without a doubt, a treasure for the believer in
Messiah YAHSHUA. The first chapter is full of blessings from the beginning to
the end: We are chosen in Christ before the foundation of the world and set
apart as blameless; we are adopted as His own through our Lord YAHSHUA; in him
we are redeemed and in Him we were made heritage and have obtained an
inheritance; we have been stamped with the seal of the long-promised Holy
Spirit as a guarantee, an anticipation of our redemption (Ephesians 1).The
beautiful thing here is that we have all of these blessings now, while in our
corrupted body. Also, we have been raised with Christ and He has made us to sit
down together in the heavenly sphere with Him (2:6). That’s where we are
spiritually speaking; that’s the position God has given us now and forever that
He might clearly demonstrate through the
ages to come the immeasurable riches of His free grace in His kindness and
goodness of heart toward us in Messiah YAHSHUA (2:7). The believer has
become in Him children of Light. YAHSHUA is the light of the world. His light is
reflected in all believers. We were marked for our redemption through the seal
of the Holy Spirit, as Israel was when the door post of their houses were marked
with the blood of a sacrificed lamb for their salvation.
