We'll commence tonight's service with Jacob's prophetic blessing upon the patriarchs: his pronouncement over Judah speaks of Jesus Messiah's second physical return or third Coming "to step out on the nuclear ashes of the wicked" with His glorified Bride, the Church of elect Israelites and Gentiles, and of the restoration of the Kingdom to Israel for a thousand years of peace.
Genesis 49:8-12, "Judah, your brethren shall praise you: you shall destroy your enemies; your father's children shall bow before you. Judah is like a lion's cub that has captured his prey and carried it up the mountainside to devour; who will dare rouse him from his rest? He is as dangerous as a mature lion or a lioness jealous for her cubs".
This victory is announced in Revelation 5:5. The elders command John, who represents the end-time Bride who will not see death, "Stop weeping, for the Lion of the Tribe of Judah has overcome and conquered all of His enemies, including Death [and mortally bruised Satan's head]. He is worthy to take the Book and to open its Seven Seals, His brethren shall praise Him. And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth and under the earth, and in the sea, cried, Blessing and honour, and glory and power, to Him Who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb for eternity" (Genesis 3:15; Revelation 5:13; Daniel 7:12-14).
After gathering His Bride of all Ages to the Wedding Supper of the Lamb in the Sky, Jesus will reveal Himself to "His father's children" in the latter part of the second half of Daniel's Seventieth Week when the United States of America and Vatican City State have been blasted from the face of the earth. The Old Testament saints with the twenty-four elders and four living creatures of both Testaments will fall down in worship before the throne. The 144,000 elect Israelites having recognized their King Messiah by faith not by sight, will bow their hearts before Him in one day, admonished by their glorified Old Testament kinsmen, for they are all God's servant nation. The 144,000 will be martyred and the heavens will open to a grand theophany showing Jesus Christ mounted on a white horse, His robes dipped in the blood of His enemies leading armies of saints to destroy His enemies, "and every eye shall see Him" (Isaiah 66:8; Ezekiel 39:17-29; Revelation 1:7; 19:1-21).
"The sceptre [kingship] shall not depart from Judah [to another tribe], nor an expounder of the law from among his descendants, until
Shiloh Sheloh ["He to whom it belongs"] comes; and to Him shall be the gathering of His KIN-folk." His elect 144,000 will be blood descendents of Jacob predestinated to partake the fullness of millennial blessings at the perfection of Judah's lordship in Jesus Messiah. Not one of the 144,000 will be a Jew; the day of grace for Jews of Adam's race has been the Gentile dispensation. You'll recall from our study in Ezekiel 40-48 that the Millennium Temple will not be a building made with human hands but 144,000 elect Israelites gathered to Messiah (Ezekiel 48; Revelation 7:1-8). Judah has not been ruled by an independent king since Nebuchadnezzar's conquest and will be ruled by Rome until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled (Daniel 9:24; Luke 21:22; Romans 11:25-26).
Revelation 5 was fulfilled in 1963 when our Lord Jesus claimed the Book, loosed its Seven Seals and revealed the Seven UNWRITTEN Thunder mysteries through His prophet, William Branham. Isaiah 11:1, 10-16 explains that once the Gentiles have found rest Christ's 'parousia' will be revealed to 144,000 elect Israelites for their regeneration in Daniel's Seventieth Week: "There shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse [King David's father], for the Kingdom [of Judah] shall be cut off and a green shoot or Branch [Jesus Christ] shall grow out of his roots" (Acts 2:22-36; Revelation 22:16).
Isaiah 11:11, "it shall come to pass in that day, [when the Church has entered her rest] the Lord will set his hand a second time to recover the remnant of His people." They will not be gathered from Khazaria (Ukraine and Georgia), Russia, Poland, Germany, France, England, the United States, Canada or Australia. God has no covenant with those non-Semitic, anti-Semitic impostors who have no history in the Middle East. He will recover the remnant of Jacob/Israel from North Africa and the Middle East whereon the apostate (once) Christian Gentile nations of the Jew-ruled "Coalition of the Willing" have been committing genocide upon the heirs of God's Sinaitic Covenant as Judea's Edomite King Herod the Great sought to murder the infant Prince Jesus, rightful heir to David's throne.
". . . the remnant of His people, which shall be left" after the genocidal bombing and cold-blooded murder by 'the allies' in behalf of the modern state of faux Israel as exposed by the courageous Private Manning and honest Julian Assange, the objective of which is to steal Ashkenazi 'leiberstraum' according to these land-napping cover devised by Oded Yinon and Bernard Lewis for Greater Israel. No longer "strictly a Zionist Project for the Middle East, it is an integral part of US foreign policy, its strategic objective is extend US hegemony as well as fracture and balkanize the Middle East. Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital is intended to trigger political instability throughout all the region. According to [Moses and] the founding father of Zionism Theodore Herzl, "the area of the Jewish State stretches: "From the Brook of Egypt to the Euphrates" [at Tiphsah (I Kings 4:24)]. According to Rabbi Fischmann, "The Promised Land extends from the River of Egypt up to the Euphrates, it includes parts of Syria and Lebanon".
According to Isaiah 11:11-16 and the maps in your Bible, "the remnant of God's people Israel, which shall be left [will be gathered] from Assyria (Lebanon, Syria, Iraq), and from Egypt, and from Pathros (Upper Egypt), and from Cush (the Sudan, Eritrea, Ethiopia and Djibouti), and from Elam (Iran), and from Shinar (Iraq), and from Hamath (Syria), and from the coastlands of the Mediterranean Sea (Southern Turkey and North Africa: Libya, Algeria and Morocco)".
God first recovered the remnant of His people after the Babylonian Captivity. This time "the dispersed of Judah will be gathered together from the four corners of the earth" by two Hebrew prophets in Israel. One anointed by the Spirit that endued Moses will restore the statutes and judgments of Mosaic Law. A second, anointed by the Spirit that rested on Elijah, will expound Israel's Feast of Trumpets through 2,000 years of history to lead them to Christ. Hereby an election will recognize Christ's parousia Coming to Israel, and the nation—all 144,000 of them—will be born-again in one day (Isaiah 66:8; Romans 11:25-27). Verses 13-16 describe how, once reunited, the twelve tribes will quickly swoop down like a bird of prey upon the Philistines in the west and spoil the children of the east (Midianites—Arab descendants of Abraham and Keturah and the Amalekites—Serpent's seed descendents of Esau's son Eliphaz by his Hittitess wife Adah (Bashemath); then they shall conquer Edom and Moab, subdue and bring Ammon under submission.
The compound verses of Genesis 49:8-12 denote the ideal terminus where Judah's lordship reaches its glorious perfection. They show how Christ's glorious rest is to be accomplished. First Messiah is implicitly set forth in "the seed of the woman," then with Seth and Shem, then with Abraham and his seed, thereafter with Jacob and Israel, and finally here with Judah.
Judah's King comes home to travel no more but to tarry, having won His Kingdom. His eyes no longer flash with eagerness to do battle but have a darker fire than wine; His teeth are whiter than milk. He's finished His conflicts, and in confident peace, He now enjoys the abundance of His land.
Judah means "praise," his hand shall be on the neck of his enemies. His power in speech corresponds to his greatness in war. All of his father's children shall bow down before him, not merely the Patriarchs. The innate lion-like nature that Judah and his tribe have displayed from their youth held no malicious design but growing and advancing in strength and size through the prey that the lion takes back to the hills, Judah's growth in warlike deeds of heroism, forms a compares with the quiet yet fearful ambush of the lion. The old lion is stronger than the young lion; and more fearful still is the lioness, especially in defence of her young. So lies the strong growth of Judah, who shall venture to attack. This prophetic lion figure is especially realized in the victorious dominion of David; although even in the wilderness, the tribe of Judah marched before the other tribes.
Now let's go back in time so we can bring Balaam's prophecies into the context of history, and their fulfilment in the near future.
Esau and his family left Canaan and went to live in Seir among the Horites whose name vanished to be replaced by that of Edomite. The Horites were kinsmen of the Amalekites after whom Eliphaz, the son of Esau, named his son. The Amalekites were the cause of the first war waged by Israel and it is of singular importance to note that the Lord God Almighty swore that "Because theirs is a hand against the throne of the Lord. He will war with Amalek from generation to generation" (Exodus 17:16); or until Esau is destroyed and the day of the Lord ushers in the age of Jacob/Israel, which will be the millennium.
When Moses sent spies from Kadesh Barnea to search out the land they returned with the evidence of its fruitfulness but lacked faith in God's ability to deliver it into their hand. They complained that they were as grasshoppers in comparison to the Canaanites and Amalekites. God declared that because of unbelief the adults would not enter the Promised Land but march around the desert until they perished. And when Moses informed his people they decided to take the Land by their might and power without the Spirit of the Lord, and against His command that they should not enter the Land. But they presumed to do battle, and the Amalekites and Canaanites smote them (Numbers 13-14; Hebrews 3-4).
When Moses petitioned the Amorite king to permit Israel to pass through his land. He refused, made battle and God destroyed his nation by the sword (Numbers 21). Israel advanced into Moab, his blood cousin by Lot's daughter who was raised in the faith of Abraham. Instead of welcome and hospitality Moab hired the prophet Balaam to curse Israel. A perfect type of our denominational cousins. God never forgave Moab and like those who encounter and reject the Message of Brother Branham, a Moabite shall never be in the election (Deuteronomy 23:4; Nehemiah 13:2; Matthew 12:32).
We will look at Balaam's prophecies because they pertain to the near future, tie back to and unfold Jacob's prophetic blessing upon the Patriarchs. I'll read Balaam's first oracle:
Numbers 23:9-10, "For from the top of the rocks I see Israel, and from the hills I behold him: lo, his people shall dwell alone, and shall not be counted among the nations. [As Christ's people dwell alone and are not countered among the denominations]. Who can count the dust of Jacob and number the fourth part of Israel's camp? [You'll recall the Tribes were divided into four orders of three around the Ark and Tabernacle of the Presence]. Let me die the death of the righteous, and let my last end be like Israel's!" — Glory!
In his vision from the Lord the prophet Balaam saw Christ's 'parousia' Coming to the 144,000 in the second half of Daniel's Seventieth Week after Jewry's antichrist covenant with Rome has been abrogated and the Jews are at last exposed. But the world will not know that there is a racial difference between Jews and Israelites so when Rome and her allies send their troops to force their mark of the beast, which is the Babylonian trinity, Jews will take the mark which all God-fearing, Word-abiding Israelites will refuse and be martyred (Acts 3:23; Revelation 6:11; 7:9; 14:13; 15:1-4). But as they come against the city to destroy it, there will appear in the heavens the sign of the 'parousia' Coming of the Son of Man with His mighty armies to destroy them who have been destroying the earth. With the enemy repulsed, Jesus then comes and presents Himself to the 144,000 by faith. Having seen His mighty acts of salvation, they've come to know His power. But also seeing His wounds and knowing that they had rejected Him even to that moment, causes them to cry out in the agony of terror and fear, even as did their brethren of old when they stood before Joseph, being sore afraid that they would be killed (Genesis 45:1-9; Seven Church Ages, 41; Zechariah 12:9; Revelation 11:18; 12:9-17; 19:11-14).
In Numbers 23:19-24 king Balak again asks Balaam to curse Israel. He replied, "God is not a man, that He should lie and He doesn't change His mind as we do. What He has promised He will accomplish. He told me to bless them as He has blessed them; and I can't reverse that."
"He hasn't beheld iniquity in Jacob, neither has he seen mischief in Israel: the Lord his God is leading Israel to victory as King among them. God brought them out of Egypt; Israel has the strength of a wild ox so that no curse can be placed upon Jacob, neither any divination against Israel. In due season, and even now, it shall be said of Jacob and of Israel, "What wonders God has done for them!" [Jacob's blessing of Judah is transferred to the whole people]. "If
you are Christ's [and Judah's promised Heir is Jesus], then are you Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise" (Galatians 3:29).
"The people shall rise up as a great lion, and shall not lie down until he has devoured his prey, and drunk the blood of the slain."
What a discouragement for king Balak. Balaam saw the tents of Israel in Tribal order. Under the anointing He looked through the eyes of Melchisedec and described them as God sees them. Numbers 24:5-9, "How beautiful are your tents, O Jacob, and your dwellings O Israel! Spread before Me as green valleys, as fragrant gardens by the riverside, as lign aloes and shady cedar trees the Lord has planted beside the waters."
"Israel shall be pour out an abundance of water [essential to fertility] from his own resources of rich blessing and plenty (Genesis 12:3); his offspring will dwell in many places, and his king shall be higher than Agag [the title of the Amalekite kings as Pharaoh was the title off the Egyptian, and
Abimelech the title of Philistine kings], and his kingdom shall be exalted."
"God brought Israel out of Egypt; he has strength like a wild ox: he shall eat up the nations that oppose him, break their bones and pierce them through with his arrows. He sleeps as a lion and who dares arouse him? Blessed is he that blesses Israel, and cursed is he that curses Israel".
Israel is the weapon in God's hand in His warfare against the enemies of the dominion of His spoken Word upon earth. Only as the arrows of God, does Israel have victorious power over the nations.
Finally Balaam told Moab's King Balak, "Here's what Israel will do to your people in the latter days." Speaking of Israel's coming King Messiah prefigured by David, he said, "I shall see Him, but not now: I shall look for Him, but not near at hand: there shall come a Star [signifying a king] out of Jacob (Matthew 2:1-2), [Abraham's promised Seed, singular, was to come through Isaac, Jacob, Judah and the Royal line of David] and a Sceptre [or rod of authority signifying a ruler or king] shall rise out of Israel, and smite the whole country of Moab from one side to the other, and destroy all the sons of Sheth [tumult]. And Israel will possess all of Edom and Seir (Genesis 27:37); and overcome their enemies. Out of Jacob will come One having dominion, and shall destroy the survivors" (Numbers 24:14, 17-24).
This partly came to pass in the time of David when he killed two thirds of the Moabite men (II Samuel 8:2). And his armies killed every adult male in Edom (II Samuel 8:13-14; I Kings 11:15-16; I Chronicles 18:11-13). David was a type of Christ. This shows what Christ will do when He tramples his enemies underfoot (Revelation 19:11-21; I Corinthians 15:25). It's a type foreshadowing a future antitype.
The Moabites who were Israel's cousins and worshipped Israel's God type our denominational cousins, the natural church that worships the same God as us but by organization without the Spirit. As Moab's natural birth was illegitimate, spiritual birth in a denomination is illegitimate because it is carnal form impersonating the Word for a day gone by. Fundamentally they know how to approach God but are the enemies of His Church as Moab understood and mimicked Israel's approach through sacrifice but organized their own formal system and withstood the Words of a vindicated prophet.
Israel typed Christ's non-denominational Bride in the liberty of His Word, free from organization, journeying to our Promised Land of the millennium. Edom types the denominations who potentially possessed but rejected the birthright, against whom the Lord has perpetual hatred. Like Esau the Gentiles are fast approaching a time of no more repentance.
"And when Balaam looked upon the dwellings of the Amalekites, he prophesied, Amalek is the foremost of the neighbouring nations; but its destiny shall be destruction." [As we stated early in our lesson, Amalek was absorbed into Edom. So the first of the Canaanite tribes who impiously sought to measure their strength with the cause and people of God were likewise the first to lose their national existence].
"When Balaam looked upon the Canaanites, he said, Strong is your dwelling place, your nest is in the rocks. [Because he foresaw how they would join to Israel in the mountainous country of Naphtali]. Nevertheless you shall be wasted until Assyria finally takes you away captive." And he took up this parable, and said, Alas, who shall live when God does this and establishes Assyria!" Balaam's prophesying 700 years into the future to the time when Tiglath-Pilesar would carry away both the Canaanites and Israel (II Kings 15:29).
"And Greek and Roman ships shall come from the coast of Cyprus, and oppress both Assyria and all of the Hebrew people, including Israel: then they too must be destroyed."
Balaam saw the new threat from the Western people under Alexander and Rome. The overthrow of the last power of the world connects his prophecy with the prophecies of Daniel and Jesus Christ, bringing us to the present day.
Wise men from the East believed Balaam's prophecy and when they saw the Shekinah like a star they followed it for two years until it led them to Bethlehem where they paid homage to the infant Prince, Jesus. "I shall see Him, but not now: I shall look for Him, but not near at hand: there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel, and shall smite the corners of Moab, and destroy all the children of Sheth [tumult]" (Numbers 24:17).
This explains why they journeyed to Jerusalem, the religious headquarters and Israel's capital, crying: "Where is He that is born King of the Jews? for we've seen His star in the East, and are come to worship Him" (Matthew 2:2). This explains why Judea's Edomite king Herod believed the magi. He knew Balaam was the vindicated prophet who prophesied this King would utterly destroy his people and his nation. He was also familiar with Jacob's prophecy that "the hand of this King would be in the neck of his enemies" (Genesis 49:8-12).
Balaam foresaw a Star rise out of Jacob and said, "I shall see the King, but not now [because He is way off in the future]: I shall behold Him," but He was "not nigh" in Balaam's day. The magi could say, "We have seen His Star." Brother Branham saw the same Star in the West; so did several thousand people on the banks of the Ohio River when he was baptizing on June 16, 1933, and a Voice out of the heavens said, "As John the Baptist foreran My first Coming, your Message will forerun My second Coming".
In our previous lesson we read from Ezekiel 35 how Esau/Edom exploited every opportunity to spill Israel's blood by the enmity God placed between the seed of the Serpent and the seed of Adam (Genesis 3:15). Thereby Edom disregarded God's Covenant with Israel and will be utterly destroyed. We read how Esau was trying to steal back the birthright he had legally sold to Jacob, justifying his own wrong by Israel's disregard for God. By the destruction of Esau/Edom God will reveal His faithfulness to the Covenant and His love for Jacob/Israel.
God said "When the whole earth rejoices, I will make Esau/Edom desolate" (Ezekiel 35:14-15). This will herald the millennium when Satan will be bound a thousand years, and the Kingdom is restored to Israel (Acts 1:6). This will bring in "everlasting righteousness . . . and the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea" (Daniel 9:24; Habakkuk 2:14).
Ezekiel 36 speaks of Israel's prospective revival and prosperity as the people of the Old Covenant, and continues God's prophecies against Mount Seir. Edom is accursed of God and the heathen nations have no interest in the power and faithfulness of God, in consequence of this Israel's heritage must revive and flourish.
Ezekiel 36:1-15, "Because the enemy sneered at Israel's mountains and claimed your ancient heights as theirs, and destroyed you on every side and sent you away as slaves to many lands." Esau/Edom sold captured Israelites as slaves to the Phoenicians, who on-sold and often transported them overseas. Modern history students who are familiar with the slave trade between Africa and North America will know it was conducted by these Edomite Jews. The same people were behind the Opium trade, and push illegal drugs through the banks and trading operations they established under the reign of the Jews' East India Company. Read (by the Editors of EIR).
Today they manage the slave trade through their UN, by instruments of policy such as LIMA and GATT. Globalization is destroying labour and industry by employing the Talmudic idea that the goy are human cattle fit only for labour paid at or below subsistence level and that industrial capacity should be leeched-out of the advanced sector and new plants built in the Third World for their looting, but not for their development. And with the strictest cost-accounting slashing living standards in the developed nations, as workers are forced to reduce their hourly rates in a downward spiral to retain their jobs, their own governments (until recently) waived duties on imported product that is cannibalizing their economy and citizens. The objective is to de-industrialise and impoverish the developed world by expatriating their productive economy and bankrupting the home country.
An illustration is General Motors' manufacture of motor vehicles in Mexico where the hourly rate varies from US$0.52 – US$1:10/hour as against US$20.00/hour for the same worker in the US, or $35.00 when the various benefits are included. Neither the Developed or the Underdeveloped nation benefits from this rape of resources, as labour prices are bid down as demonstrated when Mexico took over from China as the major supplier of clothing and textiles to the US.
Would you like to buy a Japanese TV set? Forget it! The Japanese, Korean and Taiwanese manufacturers cannot compete with labour costs in Mexico, Vietnam and Indonesia, and that's where they manufacture today.
Such cost-cutting is an assault against national sovereignty. If a society destroys the living standard of the productive labour force it destroys the elements necessary for its physical and cultural reproduction and existence. World depopulation and the return of serfdom is UN policy—slavery!
Under this recycling of labour, a worker earning US20.00/hour, plus other benefits, is fired and then re-hired for the same job on an individual contract at, US$10.00/hour or even US$25.00/hour but on different conditions and with less or no benefits. Once more he is fired, and hired again, at US$7.00/hour, with almost no benefits.
This "labour recycling" was pioneered in the Jewish-owned factories of Nazi Germany. Their last step was the labour camps as today in the USA it is manufacturing in the private prisons. The Edomite bankers are driving these Nazi "labour recycling" policies for loot to keep the speculative financial bubble from bursting until they have all the players in place, as they had several "false starts" to the First World War. They will then collapse the present money system, and commence a new game, at our expense.
This is enslavement by policy like President Trump's wars by policy! Now back to our subject, Ezekiel 36:3:
"You are mocked and slandered. . . Therefore thus saith the Lord God; Surely in the fire of My jealousy I have spoken against the rest of the nations, and especially Edom, for grabbing My Land with relish in utter contempt for Me, to take it for themselves."
"Prophesy therefore concerning the land of Israel, and say unto the mountains and hills, rivers and valleys, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am furious because you have suffered shame and the reproach of the surrounding nations: so I have sworn, that those heathen that are about you, shall bear their shame. As for Israel, there will be abundant crops of fruit to prepare for the return of My people from Captivity in Babylon. For, behold, I am for you, and I will come to help you; and you shall prepare the ground and sow: and I will greatly increase your population throughout all Israel, and the ruined cities shall be restored and reinhabited. I will also increase your flocks and herds: and I will fill you with homes. I will do even more for you than before. Then you'll know I am the Lord."
"My people will walk upon you once again, as you'll belong to them again; and no more bereave them of children for idol sacrifices."
"Thus saith the Lord God; Because they taunt you, saying, Israel is a land that devours her people in idol sacrifices [to Moloch]! Therefore you shall devour men no more. No longer will those nations sneer, for you'll no longer be a nation of sinners".
Edom's envy of Israel's possession (inheritance), led them to want to overcome it and bring Israel subject to themselves and to the other heathen. But once again God indicts them for overriding his faithfulness to His Covenant and Isaac's blessing, in consequence of which, Israel's heritage must revive and flourish, and the hopes of the heathen concerning it must be dashed.
Ezekiel 36:16-21 explains that the reason why God brought judgment upon the people and land of the Covenant was because of their wickedness and the necessity of God honouring His Own holiness by judging them. "The Word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Son of man, when the house of Israel dwelt in their own land they defiled it by their evil deeds: their worship was as a menstruous cloth. They polluted the land with murder and idol worship, so I poured My fury upon them and exiled them among the heathen in many lands: that is how I punished them for their evil lives. But when they were so scattered, they profaned My holy Name because the heathens said, These are the people of the Lord, yet they had to leave His land because He couldn't protect them. But I had regard to My reputation, which the house of Israel ruined wherever they went."
Ezekiel 36:22-33 explains God's purpose, both for His Own Name's sake, and for Israel's future blessing, is to revive His cause among His people by sanctifying them. "Therefore say to the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord God; I am bringing you back again: not because you deserve it, but to protect My holy Name which you have profaned among the heathen. I will sanctify My great Name that you defiled, and the heathen shall know that I am the Lord when I am honoured before their eyes by delivering you from exile among them. For I will restore you again to the land of Israel [unconverted and in unbelief])."
"Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and you shall be clean from all your filthiness, and from all your idolatry."
Verse 25 has a compound meaning. We see it as prophesying the ministry of the Hebrew prophet with the anointing that was upon Moses, restoring the 144,000 back to sanctification under the orthodox faith of the Law and the prophets whence they have fallen. And verse 26 foretelling the ministry of the Hebrew prophet who will be anointed with the Spirit that was upon Elijah, apprising Israel of "the present Truth" (II Peter 1:12).
"And I will give you a new heart, and put a new Spirit within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you a heart of flesh. And I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to obey My laws, and keep My judgments and do whatever I command."
This is speaking of the time of the end, of Daniel's Seventieth Week after the self-styled Israeli Jews have abandoned the land of the Covenant and genuine blood Israelites—no longer welcome in the Muslim lands of the ancient Babylonian and Assyrian Empires since the earthquakes destroyed al Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock—have returned to the Land of their Covenant and are sanctifying in expectation of their redemption.
"And you shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and you shall be My people, and I will be your God."
This shows the folly of British Israel, Christian Identity (so-called) and other theories claiming natural Israel is somehow the United States or Britain and the Commonwealth. None of those countries are Israel, but colonies of the non-Semitic, anti-Semitic self-styled Jews of the City of London who have no claims on Israel, upon God, or upon any Covenant of God. Malachi calls them, "the people against whom the Lord has indignation forever".
"I will cleanse away your sins, I will abolish crop failures and famine. I will multiply the fruit of the tree, and the increase of the field; never again will the surrounding heathens scoff at your land for its famines. Then you will remember your past sins and loathe yourselves for your iniquities and your abominations."
"Bear in mind that it's not for your sakes that I do this, and be repentant for what you have done."
"Thus saith the Lord; When I cleanse you from your iniquities, I will bring you home to Israel, and rebuild the ruins."
Ezekiel 36:34-38 summarizes the general result. "Acreage that lay desolate will be cultivated again. People shall say, This land that was desolate is like the Garden of Eden. The once ruined cities are walled and inhabited. Then the nations that are left round about you shall know that I, the Lord, rebuilt the ruined places, and replanted that which was desolate: I the Lord have spoken it, and I will do it."
"Thus saith the Lord God; I am ready to hear Israel's prayers for these blessings, and to grant their requests. I will increase them with men like the consecrated flocks of sanctified sheep that fill Jerusalem's streets at the time of her appointed feasts."
[Ezekiel 36:37 – 37:14 is read in the Synagogue during Passover. Verse 37 points to the great accumulation of sacrificial sheep for the Passover (II Chronicles 35:7; Mark 15:6) to which the 144,000 restored of Israel are compared.
In Romans 12:1 Paul says, "I implore you, brethren, in view of the mercies of God that you present all of your members and faculties as a living sacrifice, consecrated and pleasing to God, as is your reasonable service"].
"The ruined cities will be crowded once more and everyone shall know that I am the Lord [or Sovereign Ruler, calling forth loyalty and obedient service]."
Ezekiel 37 makes particular reference to the restoration of Israel to the Promised Land in these last days, symbolized as dry bones. It mentions the dispensation Change, regeneration of the 144,000, and the millennial reign of Jesus as Son of David.
Ezekiel 37:7, 14, "I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I spoke there was a rattling noise, then an earthquake, and the bones came together, bone to his bone." Oh my! This is speaking of the return and reunion of the twelve tribes in Daniel's Seventieth Week. Let's GO!
This brings us back to Isaiah 11:11-16 and the earthquakes that will sink Los Angeles and split the Mount of Olives marking the close of the Gentile Dispensation at the Seventh Trump, calling the first resurrection after three days, and igniting the Muslim invasion of Jerusalem to defend the now demolished al Aqsa Mosque and es Sakhra, the Dome of the Rock upon Temple Mount. The utter defeat of the modern State of faux Israel and the mass exodus of non-Semitic self-styled Israeli Jews will enable the genuine blood descendants of Jacob/Israel to return to the Land of their Covenant without "fear of the Jews." Hence the "rattling of the bones" of the twelve tribes. The global scope of this unprecedented natural catastrophe producing earthquakes, volcanic eruptions—even upon the moon, and tidal waves accompanying Satan's supernatural casting down to earth will be the catalyst that activates the confederacy of world religions organized at Vatican II.
Before his untimely death in 1999, Jewish Jesuit Dr. Malachi Martin, who was with Vatican intelligence assessing things in Israel, and an adviser to three popes, told Uri Dowbenko, "I think that from the very start John Paul II for whatever reasons has sought after one thing and one thing only. The formation of what now appears to be in his mind, a universal assemblage of Catholics at the core; grouped with them the Protestant denominations, sects and churches; grouped around them believing Jews, believing Muslims, believing Hindus, believing Buddhists. And that would be a universal religious assembly that could have a powerful dynamic kick in civilization and in solving the problems of men and women today. That is the only thing you can really say this man has sought heart and soul and body with all his travelling. . ." (Uri Dowbenko, Bushwhacked: Inside Stories of True Conspiracy, ISBN 0971004218, p. 213).
Brother Branham said, they're now being gathered together for the burning. Did you notice, Jesus said, "First, gather them together, bundle them, and then put all the bundles in one pile, and I'll burn them" (Matthew 13:30). There's a little bundle called Methodist, Baptist, Presbyterian, Lutheran, they're all gathering together in the World Council of Churches (Revelation 13:13-18). What is it? "Gather them first!" Hallelujah! Did you notice, He gathers the tares first, gets them away from the wheat, separates them, "Gather them together and burn them." They're all to be burned with the judgments of God, for sowing discrepancy among the people . . . Having a form of godliness, and denying the Power thereof, denying the Word, just to hold up some religious rites, of some dogma that somebody's injected in, trying to put in the Word of God. It won't work. It's a discrepancy" (The Seed of Discrepancy, p. 14:75).
The Third Pull, has now been vindicated . . . it's just happened, so it could identify its presence among you, see, but it will not be used in a great way until this Council begins to tighten up . . . But when that time comes, when the squeeze comes down, then you'll see, what you've seen temporarily, be manifested in the fullness of its power" (Look Away to Jesus, p. 5:38-39).
This is what Christians are anticipating, but like Israelites denominational believers have been blinded, "lest they should be converted and Christ should heal them" (Matthew 13:13-15; II Timothy 4:3-4; Revelation 3:17-20).
"And I shall put My Spirit in you, and you shall live, and I shall place you in your own land: then shall you know that I the Lord have spoken it, and performed it, saith the Lord."
Where is Israel when he's born-again? "In his own land." God cannot deal with Israel outside the Land of the Covenant.
Ezekiel 37:24-25, "David My servant shall be King over them; [that's our Lord Jesus Christ, and this is during the Millennium]; and they all shall have One Shepherd: they shall also obey My laws and all My wishes. They shall live in the land that I gave to My servant Jacob, where their fathers lived. [Not Britain, America or the Commonwealth]. They and their children after them: and My servant David, their Messiah, shall be their Prince forever."
How close are we, Brethren? In Matthew 24:32-34 Jesus said, "The generation [or race of Jacob/Israel—not Jewry] that saw Israel restored to the Promised Land in 1948 will not die-out through old age before the Millennium begins." And Jesus takes His Bride Home for the Wedding Supper seven years beforehand. bb981028.htm
