The Fear of God vs the Fear of Man

Most of us are trying to get on with life after two years of the vaccine mandates and the traffic control system, but my cousin can’t.

She is studying to be a nurse and is stuck with the stark choice of being injected with an unapproved serum or abandoning two years of study.

The NZ government and media are trying to stay in control with vaccine mandates even though they don’t work, they’re still experimental, and people are being harmed.

Are you being asked or forced to do something by the government or your employer that violates your conscience or your bodily autonomy?

Would you, or have you given in to them for the sake of your mortgage or career?

In the face of coercion or a mandate, who or what should you fear?

What if you are in the unenviable position of having to choose between your health and income?

What’s the worst thing that can happen if you lose your income?

There’s a proverb that says “Better is little with fear of the Lord than great treasure and trouble therewith,” Proverbs 15:16

What’s the worst thing that can happen if you lose your health? My advice is not to conform to the world but to present your body to God as a living sacrifice. He’s given you a state of the art immune system.

Don’t sacrifice yourself for anything else. Don’t let anyone defile your body, no matter how much pressure they put on you.

Those coercing you, bullying you and calling you names are not the ones who will face the consequences if you are harmed. They’re not worth it.

Who or what are you trusting in for safety?

The fear of man brings a snare, But whoever trusts in the Lord shall be safe. Proverbs 29:25

The fear of God blesses our households.

Noah was moved by godly fear and he built an ark that saved his household.

By faith Noah, being divinely warned of things not yet seen, moved with godly fear, prepared an ark for the saving of his household, by which he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness which is according to faith. Hebrews 11:7

Egypt was not a safe place for Hebrew babies who were male. The Egyptian pharaoh wanted them drowned in the Nile.

But the parents of Moses were not afraid of the king’s command.

By faith Moses, when he was born, was hidden three months by his parents, because they saw he was a beautiful child; and they were not afraid of the king’s command. Hebrews 11:23

This act saved Moses, a man who God would use to save a nation.

The midwives also disobeyed Pharaoh.

But the midwives feared God, and did not do as the king of Egypt commanded them, but saved the male children alive. Exodus 1:17

Their obedience to God led to babies being saved and their households being blessed.

Therefore God dealt well with the midwives, and the people multiplied and grew very mighty. And so it was, because the midwives feared God, that He provided households for them. Exodus 1:20-21

Who should you obey?

I’ll never judge you for the choice you have to make but I will judge those who forced you into it.

All I hope is I’ve given you something to think about and that you can stand firm.

And who is he who will harm you if you become followers of what is good?  But even if you should suffer for righteousness’ sake, you are blessed. “And do not be afraid of their threats, nor be troubled. 1 Peter 3:13-14

Through the Word: the Civil Disobedience of Egypt’s Midwifes

By faith Moses, when he was born, was hidden three months by his parents, because they saw he was a beautiful child; and they were not afraid of the king’s command. Hebrews 11:23

1

Exodus 1

Joseph died and roughly 400 years later a new king arose over Egypt who didn’t know him. Jacob’s descendants filled the land which alarmed the Pharaoh and he made slaves of them. “And they built for Pharaoh supply cities, Pithom and Raamses.” Exodus 1:11

A wall painting in the tomb of Rekhmire shows Semitic slaves making bricks. (Public Domain)

Not only were the Israelites put to hard labour – the Hebrew midwives were told to drown the male babies of the Israelites in the Nile. But they didn’t do it because they feared God.

But the midwives feared God, and did not do as the king of Egypt commanded them, but saved the male children alive. Exodus 1:17

The midwive’s names were Shiprah and Puah. The fear of the Lord lead to them being blessed; “Therefore God dealt well with the midwives, and the people multiplied and grew very mighty.  And so it was, because the midwives feared God, that He provided households for them.” Exodus 1:20-21

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of Wisdom.

Today’s midwives are fighting another battle, this one is with big pharma who are pushing the Covid vaccine and boosters.

We’re friends with a midwife who was forced to get injected in 2021. After that she got very sick, she felt constant pressure on her chest and had trouble breathing. This happened straight after she was injected with the unapproved mRNA serum but her doctor didn’t want to know.

She also had a miscarriage and soon after she conceived again – this time carrying her son to full term. The baby seems healthy – but unlike her other babies he was born with some small holes in his heart and he was jaundiced.

Here’s an article showing her dilemma.

Coronavirus: Taranaki midwives prepared to quit rather than get vaccinated against COVID-19

The midwife is from the area mentioned in the article. It’s full of propaganda – the injection is not a vaccine, it is not safe and effective, and a Pfizer executive has just admitted the product was never tested to see if it worked before it was released to market.

Ten of Taranaki District Health Board’s 63 registered midwives refused the injection, effectively ending their careers and leaving around 290 families looking for new midwives.

The Egyptian midwives and the New Zealand midwives are separated by thousands of years but there are similarities – they’re facing despotic regimes who are asking them to make terrible choices. We are all affected by this.

The power behind both regimes is satanic, Satan knew Jesus would come from the Israelite nation and so he tried to kill the male children.

The same power is rearing its ugly head again. Pharoah’s motive was fear, big pharma’s is greed and the world leader’s motive is a desire to control the world population.

Behind big pharma we have Babylon. In Revelation 18:23 it says that her merchants were the great men of the earth and “by her sorcery all the nations were deceived.” I believe a spell was cast as people seemed hypnotised by the need for a vaccine. But the telling word is the Greek word for sorcery – pharmakeia.

I would never judge this friend for the choice she was forced to make between her career as a midwife and her health, we are living in perilous times and need to seek the Lord now more than ever.

This is a spiritual war. We need to fear God, stand firm and not do what the authorities want us to do.

Revelation 20, The War of God and Magog and The Final Judgement

Now when the thousand years have expired, Satan will be released from his prison and will go out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle, whose number is as the sand of the sea.  They went up on the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city. Revelation 20:7-10

Why would God let the devil out of the Bottomless Pit at the end of 1000 years? Hasn’t he caused enough trouble? The purpose of Satan being let out is to test the descendants of the survivors.

The question to be asked is, what will sinners do with full scientific knowledge? Schools, universities and colleges will be places of full knowledge. Isaiah chapter 11:6-10 says; “For the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.

In spite of living in complete wisdom, truth and knowledge in the best conditions man has ever known, man will still be deceived. Such is the power of unregenerated man’s sinful nature and the sly, silvery tongue of a pretty, pretty angel.

So after 1,000 years men and Satan will go to war against Jesus again. The War of Gog and Magog is not to be confused with the prince of Gog. In this instance and from the context, Gog and Magog are nations from the four corners of the earth.

We don’t know how long the war will go on for and what it will do to the earth, but Satan loses – this time for good. He will never meddle with earth again.

And fire came down from God out of heaven and devoured them.  The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever. Revelation 20:7-10

There is a river whose streams shall make glad the city of God,
The holy place of the tabernacle of the Most High.
God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved;
God shall help her, just at the break of dawn.
The nations raged, the kingdoms were moved;
He uttered His voice, the earth melted.

Come, behold the works of the Lord,
Who has made desolations in the earth.
He makes wars cease to the end of the earth;
He breaks the bow and cuts the spear in two;
He burns the chariot in the fire.

Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!

Psalm 46

The Great White Throne Judgement

The Great White Throne Judgement will follow this war. The Lamb’s Book of Life will be opened and everyone will be resurrected. Jesus said; “Do not marvel at this; for the hour is coming in which all who are in the graves will hear His voice and come forth—those who have done good, to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of condemnation.” John 5:28-29

If the people’s names are in the Book of Life they will inhabit the new earth. If they rejected the pardon offered at the cross they will be judged under the law and follow the devil into the Lake of Fire. This is the second death.

And at that time your people shall be delivered, everyone who is found written in the book. And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, some to shame and everlasting contempt.

Those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament, and those who turn many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever. Daniel 12:1-3

Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. The earth and the heavens fled from his presence, and there was no place for them.  And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life.

The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books.  The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what they had done. Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. Revelation 20:11-15

This judgement will determine punishment. There are degrees of punishment, as told in the parable of Luke 12, where the servants who did not believe the master was coming back mistreated the other servants and lorded it over them;

But if that servant says in his heart, ‘My master is delaying his coming,’ and begins to beat the male and female servants, and to eat and drink and be drunk, the master of that servant will come on a day when he is not looking for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in two and appoint him his portion with the unbelievers.

And that servant who knew his master’s will, and did not prepare himself or do according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. But he who did not know, yet committed things deserving of stripes, shall be beaten with few. For everyone to whom much is given, from him much will be required; and to whom much has been committed, of him they will ask the more.

Jesus warned, “I tell you, my friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body and after that can do no more. But I will show you whom you should fear: Fear him who, after your body has been killed, has authority to throw you into hell. Yes, I tell you, fear him.” Luke 12:4-5

Jesus promised the persecuted Church of Smyrna, “He who overcomes shall not be hurt by the second death.” Revelation 2:11.

And He promised the dead Church of Sardis, “He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life; but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels.” Revelation 3:5

Revelation 16 & 18 , The Seventh Bowl Judgement

The Sixth Bowl Judgement of Revelation 16:12-16 began the war of Armageddon and the Seventh Bowl Judgement of Revelation 16:17-21 will end it. God is going to cut off the head of the snake. He will win the war of Armageddon and completely destroy Babylon.

Revelation 16, The Seventh Bowl

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!”  And 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.

Now the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell. And great Babylon was remembered before God, to give her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His wrath.

Then every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. And great hail from heaven fell upon men, each hailstone about the weight of a talent. Men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail, since that plague was exceedingly great. Revelation 16:17-21

God has the kept the plague of hail in reserve for the time of trouble, the day of battle and war; Job 38:22.

The talent was the heaviest or largest biblical unit of measurement for weight, equal to about 75 pounds or 35 kilograms. Source: Learn religions

Jesus Feet Touch the Earth

The earthquake will terraform the land, flatten cities and disrupt the troop movements.

Just before the earthquake, Jesus will return to earth. He will come back to the same spot on the Mount of Olives that He departed from after his resurrection over 2000 years ago. This was promised by the two men in white who were there when Jesus ascended to Heaven; “This same Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven.” Acts 1:10-11

When his feet touch the earth the whole world will shake.

The prophet Zechariah wrote; On that day his feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, east of Jerusalem, and the Mount of Olives will be split in two from east to west, forming a great valley, with half of the mountain moving north and half moving south. Zechariah 14:1-5

Jerusalem will be split into three parts and the people trapped in Jerusalem will run for their lives through the newly formed valley.

The Judgement

In Ezekiel 38:21-22, God said He would bring Gog to judgement with pestilence and bloodshed. He will rain down on him, his troops and allies flooding rain, great hailstones, fire, and brimstone.

Babylon’s plagues are coming. The city is slated for destruction.

At the noise of the taking of Babylon the earth trembles, and the cry is heard among the nations. Jeremiah 50:46

The Lord will muster an army of the Mighty Ones (gibbor) and from the end of Heaven they will come. This is foretold in Isaiah 13, Isaiah 18 and Jeremiah 50 and 51. Isaiah 13 places this event in the ‘Day of the Lord.’

For out of the north a nation comes up against her, which shall make her land desolate, and no one shall dwell therein. They shall move, they shall depart, both man and beast. Jeremiah 50:2-3

Then the heavens and the earth and all that is in them shall sing joyously over Babylon; For the plunderers shall come to her from the north, says the Lord. Jeremiah 51:48

Revelation 18, Babylon

After these things (the plagues from the Bowl judgements) I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was illuminated with his glory.  And he cried mightily with a loud voice, saying, “Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and has become a dwelling place of demons, a prison for every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hated bird!  

For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich through the abundance of her luxury.”

One last time, people are entreated to come out of Babylon;

And I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues.  

For her sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities.  Render to her just as she rendered to you, and repay her double according to her works; in the cup which she has mixed, mix double for her.

In the measure that she glorified herself and lived luxuriously, in the same measure give her torment and sorrow; for she says in her heart, ‘I sit as queen, and am no widow, and will not see sorrow.’  Therefore her plagues will come in one day—death and mourning and famine.

And she will be utterly burned with fire, for strong is the Lord God who judges her. Revelation 18:1-8

Who will be left to heed the admonition to come out of Babylon? Those who have escaped the mark and want to go to Israel: ‘You who have escaped the sword, Get away! Do not stand still! Remember the Lord afar off, And let Jerusalem come to your mind.’ Jeremiah 51:50

The Fall of Babylon

If anyone is still left in Babylon they have to get out. Babylon is going to meet the same fate as Sodom and Gomorrah. The smoke will rise up and do so forever.

In that day, he who is on the housetop, and his goods are in the house, let him not come down to take them away. And likewise the one who is in the field, let him not turn back. Remember Lot’s wife.  Whoever seeks to save his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life will preserve it. Luke 17:31-33

It will be the end of global trade and a total collapse of the world’s financial system, as foretold in Revelation chapter 18.

The World Mourns Babylon’s Fall

Even in the apocalypse there was a class of ‘haves’ and ‘have-nots.’

Someone was in the lap of luxury getting everything they wanted. The wealth transfer enacted before the Tribulation enabled the rich to live in fortified bunkers and gated communities. They bought the gold and silver, jewellery, luxury goods, fine food and spices and even the bodies and souls of men. They owned everything and were happy.

They looked down on ordinary people and considered them useless eaters consuming “their” resources.

Pride comes before a fall. Their laughter will turn to tears. Three groups of people will be weeping when they see the smoke of Babylon burning;

  • The kings of the earth who committed adultery with her and shared her luxury,
  • The merchants who sold the luxury goods and gained their wealth from Babylon,
  • Every sea captain, and all who travel by ship, the sailors, and all who earn their living from the sea.

Revelation 18:9-19

They’re are all standing at a distance. “Was there ever a city like this great city?” the mariners will exclaim while watching it burn. The kings of the earth and the merchants will be terrified, as they should be. The kings of the earth whored with her and shared her luxury. The merchants had dishonest weights and measures and their scales were likely used by the rider of the black horse.

James the brother of Jesus said those who heaped up treasure for the last days have fattened their hearts as in a day of slaughter; “Come now, you rich, weep and howl for your miseries that are coming upon you! Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are moth-eaten. Your 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.

Indeed 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 the Lord of Sabaoth. You have lived on the earth in pleasure and luxury; you have fattened your hearts as in a day of slaughter. You have condemned, you have murdered the just; he does not resist you. James 5:1-6

“Rejoice over her, O heaven, and you holy apostles and prophets, for God has avenged you on her!” Revelation 18:20

Finality of Babylon’s Fall

Then a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone and threw it into the sea, saying, “Thus with violence the great city Babylon shall be thrown down, and shall not be found anymore. The sound of harpists, musicians, flutists, and trumpeters shall not be heard in you anymore.

No craftsman of any craft shall be found in you anymore, and the sound of a millstone shall not be heard in you anymore.  The light of a lamp shall not shine in you anymore, and the voice of bridegroom and bride shall not be heard in you anymore.

For your *merchants were the *great men of the earth, for by your *sorcery all the nations were deceived. And in her was found the blood of prophets and saints, and of all who were slain on the earth.” Revelation 18:21-24

In the original Greek the word “merchants” is emporos and the word “sorcery” is pharmakeia. They were the great men of the world, megistanes, meaning lords and noblemen. By their pharmakeia the whole world was deceived. Think about what’s been happening since 2020.

Those who hurt children will be going down with her; “But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of the sea.” Matthew 18:6

The Seventh Bowl judgement will finish Babylon off. The city will be left in ruins burning, and the rest of it will be flooded.

Revelation 18 23 – Discover Babylon’s Deception by Pharmakeia / Sorcery!

Revelation 19, The Sixth Bowl, Armaggedon

Revelation 19:11-21 leads on from Revelation 16:12-16

The world’s armies will assemble at Armaggedon, called to war by the evil words and signs from the Satanic Trinity of the Dragon, Beast and False prophet. This climactic battle between good and evil is the sixth Bowl Judgement.

Then the sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up, so that the way of the kings from the east might be prepared.  And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs coming out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.

For they are spirits of demons, performing signs, which go out to the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty

And they gathered them together to the place called in Hebrew, Armageddon. Revelation 16:12-16

And I saw the beast, the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army. Revelation 19:19

After assembling on the plain at Megiddo, the armies will make their way south to converge on Jerusalem. There they will meet Jesus, the Man of War at the Valley of Jehoshaphat.

 Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself.

He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God.  And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses.  

Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.  And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written:

KING OF KINGS AND
LORD OF LORDS.

Revelation 19:11-16

Revelation 19-15

Gird your sword on your side, you mighty one;  clothe yourself with splendour and majesty.
In your majesty ride forth victoriously in the cause of truth, humility and justice;
let your right hand achieve awesome deeds.
Let your sharp arrows pierce the hearts of the king’s enemies;
let the nations fall beneath your feet. Psalm 45:3-5

The world is going to war against God. It will be futile.

Why do the nations rage, and the people plot a vain thing?
The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying, “Let us break Their bonds in pieces and cast away Their cords from us.”

He who sits in the heavens shall laugh; The Lord shall hold them in derision.  Then He shall speak to them in His wrath, and distress them in His deep displeasure: “Yet I have set My King On My holy hill of Zion.” Psalm 2:1-6

Jerusalem, the Cup of Trembling

“Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem. And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it.” Zechariah 12:2-3

Half of the city of Jerusalem will be taken; Behold, the day of the Lord is coming, And your spoil will be divided in your midst. For I will gather all the nations to battle against Jerusalem; The city shall be taken, the houses rifled, and the women ravished. Half of the city shall go into captivity, but the remnant of the people shall not be cut off from the city. Zechariah 14:1

And there shall be on that day,” says the Lord, ‘The sound of a mournful cry from the Fish Gate, a wailing from the Second Quarter, and a loud crashing from the hills.’ Zephaniah 1:10-11

The Judeans will fight heroically and Jesus will come with His army to aid them; In that day the Lord of hosts will be for a crown of glory and a diadem of beauty to the remnant of His people, For a spirit of justice to him who sits in judgement, and for strength to those who turn back the battle at the gate. Isaiah 28:5-6

Here is the Lion of the Tribe of Judah; As a lion growls, a great lion over its prey—and though a whole band of shepherds is called together against it, it is not frightened by their shouts or disturbed by their clamour—so the Lord Almighty will come down to do battle on Mount Zion and on its heights. Isaiah 31:4

The Lord will save the tents of Judah (the southern part of Israel) first so that the glory of the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem shall not become greater than that of Judah.  In that day the Lord will defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem, He will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem. Zechariah 12:2-3

Like birds hovering overhead, the Lord Almighty will shield Jerusalem; He will shield it and deliver it, he will ‘pass over’ it and will rescue it. Isaiah 31:4-5 (NIV)

The Beast is Captured

Gog, also called “the Assyrian” will fight on the mountains of Israel.

Ezekiel prophesied;

This is what will happen in that day: When Gog attacks the land of Israel, my hot anger will be aroused, declares the Sovereign Lord. In my zeal and fiery wrath I declare that at that time there shall be a great earthquake in the land of Israel…

The mountains will be overturned, the cliffs will crumble and every wall will fall to the ground. I will summon a sword against Gog on all my mountains, declares the Sovereign Lord. Every man’s sword will be against his brother. I will execute judgement on him with plague and bloodshed; I will pour down torrents of rain, hailstones and burning sulphur on him and on his troops and on the many nations with him. Ezekiel 39:17-23

The Lord will strike all the people fighting against Jerusalem with a horrific plague; Their flesh shall dissolve while they stand on their feet, their eyes shall dissolve in their sockets, and their tongues shall dissolve in their mouths. Zechariah 14:12

When the plague hits, the enemy troops will panic and start killing each other and Jesus will go after the Beast with His sword; the sword that He promised in Isaiah 34:5 would be bathed in heaven.

Then Assyria shall fall by a sword not of man, and a sword not of mankind shall devour him. But he shall flee from the sword, and his young men shall become forced labour.

A banner will be lifted up for the whole world to see, a banner that Isaiah 31:8-9 stated the Beast’s princes shall be afraid of; All inhabitants of the world and dwellers on the earth: When he lifts up a banner on the mountains, you see it; And when he blows a trumpet, you hear it. Isaiah 18:3

He shall cross over to his stronghold for fear, and his princes shall be afraid of the banner,” says the Lord, whose fire is in Zion and whose furnace is in Jerusalem. Isaiah 31:8-9

The Beast will meet his end in Israel; And he shall plant the tents of his palace between the seas and the glorious holy mountain, yet he shall come to his end, and no one will help him. Daniel 11:45

Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshipped his image. These two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone. Revelation 19:20

As for the rest of the beasts, they had their dominion taken away, yet their lives were prolonged for a season and a time.’ Daniel 7:11-12

And the rest were killed with the sword which proceeded from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse. And all the birds were filled with their flesh. Revelation 19:21

Then I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in the midst of heaven, “Come and gather together for the supper of the great God,  that you may eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of captains, the flesh of mighty men, the flesh of horses and of those who sit on them, and the flesh of all people, free and slave, both small and great.” Revelation 19:17-18

The Judgement of the Nations

The day the Lord judges the nations will be a day outside of time with no light. Jerusalem will resemble Mount Sinai in the thundering and roaring.

It shall come to pass in that day that there will be no light; the lights will diminish. It shall be one day which is known to the Lord— neither day nor night. But at evening time it shall happen that it will be light. Zechariah 14:6-7

This is the Day of the Lord.  The survivors of the nations will be gathered up and taken to the Valley of Jehoshaphat, as prophesied in Joel 3: “In those days and at that time, when I restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem, I will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat.  There I will put them on trial for what they did to my inheritance, my people Israel, because they scattered my people among the nations and divided up my land.” Joel 3:1-2.

He shall judge among the nations, He shall fill the places with dead bodies, He shall execute the heads of many countries, Psalm 110:6.

Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision.
The sun and moon will grow dark, and the stars will diminish their brightness. The Lord also will roar from Zion, and utter His voice from Jerusalem; The heavens and earth will shake;
But the Lord will be a shelter for His people, and the strength of the children of Israel, Joel 3:14-16.

The Valley of Jehoshaphat is located in the Kidron Valley, between Jerusalem and the Mount of Olives.

The name Jehoshaphat means ‘the Lord judges.’ Jehovah-Jashopet means ‘The Judge.’ 

Jesus is the Judge.  He said in John 5:21 that the Father has committed all judgement to the Son, and He who does not honour the Son does not honour the Father who sent Him.

Isaiah wrote about Jesus in Isaiah 45:22-25, “Every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that he is Lord.”

Jesus will sort out the people as a shepherd sorts the sheep from the goats. He told of this judgement in Matthew 25:31-46 when He said, “The goats will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.” Matthew 25:46

The Sheep and Goats Judgement

Matthew 25:31-46

When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory.  All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. Matthew 25:31-32

This judgement is on the nations as to how they treated Jesus’ brethren. As far as Jesus is concerned, whatever the nations did to His brethren – the Jews, disciples, and followers – they did to Him: “Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.” Matthew 25:40

He will be looking at those He is judging to see if they extended even the smallest act of mercy toward His people. To those who were merciful, He will show mercy; “And if anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones who is my disciple, truly I tell you, that person will certainly not lose their reward!” Matthew 10:40-42

But Jesus will tell those who abused His brethren: “Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels: for I was hungry and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink; I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.” Matthew 25:41-43

The righteous will inherit the kingdom prepared for them from the foundation of the world, see Matthew 25:34-36 and Jesus’ words from Matthew 5:5: “Blessed are the meek, For they shall inherit the earth.”

Those who survive will be sent to nations outside of Israel who have not heard of Jesus’ fame or seen His glory; “I will set a sign among them; and those among them who escape I will send to the nations: to Tarshish and Pul and Lud, who draw the bow, and Tubal, and Javan, to the coastlands afar off who have not heard My fame nor seen My glory. And they shall declare My glory among the Gentiles.” Isaiah 66:18-19

They will go to the nations who have seen His sign, but don’t know the earth is under new management. They’ll be sent to the places where the lines of communication are down and there’s no news coverage.

Notes

The Day of the Lord

The Day of the Lord will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition; 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4

The sun shall be turned into darkness and the moon into blood before the Day of the Lord; Joel 2:30-32

This is the day the Lord Comes and Reigns; Zechariah 14

The Day of the Lord will be a dreadful day for those in Israel who worship the man of Sin; Amos 5:16-17

The Day of the Lord will be pitch-black; Amos 5:18-20 and Isaiah 13:9-10.

The day the Lord judges the sun and moon will be darkened. Joel 3

Gog

Gog is not from Russia. The Assyrian Court records discovered and translated in the 1900s are the primary evidence for identifying the nations referred to in the Ezekiel chapters and they trump all the subjective evidence put forward that Russia is Gog/Magog. The scriptures about the ancient nations of Ezekiel 38 and 39 are directly supported by these records.

Within academia today, no professional archaeologists, historians or serious Bible researchers associate Magog with the Scythians or the Scythians with the Russians.

This is what the Assyrian Court records say about Gog of Magog; The Lydian population in Asia Minor came to be ruled by a militant ruler, a tyrant whom the Greeks called ‘Gyges of Lydia’ in the western part of Turkey.

To the Assyrians, this leader was known as ‘Gugu, King of Ludu,’ and ‘Gugu of Magugu.’ Ezekiel, who lived at the same time as Gyges referred to this same leader as ‘Gog of Magog’ where ‘Magog’ meant ‘the land of Gog.’

It fits with Assyria and the King of the North, and we know from the prophet Daniel that he will be from the eastern part of the former empire of Alexander the Great which covers the same area.

God will turn him around, put hooks in his jaws and bring him out with his whole army. Gog will attack Israel and we know from Ezekiel chapter 38 that Iran, Ethiopia, Libya/Somalia, and Turkey will support him.

On that day there shall be a great earthquake in the land of Israel with huge hail matching the hailstones of the Seventh Bowl judgement. In Ezekiel 38:21-22, God said He would bring Gog to judgement with pestilence and bloodshed and would rain down on him, his troops and allies flooding rain, great hailstones, fire, and brimstone.

In the next chapter of Ezekiel God will knock the bow from his hand. Gog will fall on the mountains of Israel and all his troops and people with him. Their bodies will be given to the birds and beasts to be devoured.

God describes what He is going to do in Ezekiel 39:1-8 and says, “That is the day of which I have spoken.” That day is ‘the Day of the Lord’ and the battle in that day will be the Battle of Armageddon.

Revelation 17, Babylon

Revelation 17

Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and talked with me, saying to me, “Come, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who sits on many waters, with whom the kings of the earth committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth were made drunk with the wine of her fornication.” Revelation 17:1-2

The angel said “The waters which you saw, where the harlot sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations, and tongues,” Revelation 17:15.

This is a threefold system—a religious-political-cultural ideology sitting on top of a global government. Instead of serving the one true God it’s hiring itself out for favours with the world’s leaders and it’s intoxicated with power, wealth and influence.

Spiritually the harlot sits on a blasphemous beast.

So he carried me away in the Spirit into the wilderness. And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast which was full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. Revelation 17:3

The woman from the wilderness is a counterfeit of the Woman who fled from the dragon to the wilderness in Revelation 12.

The Woman being taken care of in the wilderness for 1260 days is the believing remnant of Israel. They were in Jerusalem and Judea when the Antichrist took over the temple and heeding Jesus’ warning, they ran for the hills. They know Jesus is their Messiah and they’re waiting for Him.

This other woman is not fleeing from the scarlet beast – she’s riding it. The seven heads are seven empires and the rulers of the seven empires are regarded as ‘gods,’ that’s why the heads have names of blasphemy.

The beast is a Luciferian One World government and it’s religious, not secular. When the Nephilim and fallen angels get here atheism and materialism will be over – regarded as a stupid belief system and relegated to the past.

But Darwin’s theory of evolution will still survive, with a modifier – the fallen angels will say they guided man’s evolution with gene therapy and they’re here to help mankind evolve to the next stage. This will be the strong delusion;

 The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders,  and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.  And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness. 2 Thessalonians 2:6-12

People will be flocking to the new god or gods. Will they heed Jesus’ warning not to be deceived?

These old gods will be back with new names. I wouldn’t be surprised if they pose as extra-terrestrials. These entities will offer a veritable smorgasboard to cater for all religious appetities; there will be something for everyone with a huge dollop of environmentalism, technocracy and gender bending political correctness thrown in.

The seven heads will incorporate religions from the seven continents; eastern and western religions like apostate Judaism and Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism, and Taoism. The fallen angels will explain how it all ties in. People will be deluded into embracing the narrative that best speaks to their own truth and they will think they’ve got freedom of religion.

The Mystery Religion

The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the filthiness of her fornication.  And on her forehead a name was written:

MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. Revelation 17:4-5

Babylon is a mystery for a number of reasons: she’s a counterfeit of the Woman. God has mysteries and so Satan must have mysteries. The ‘Daughter of Zion’ is a mystery and so is the ‘Whore of Babylon.’ There’s Zion on earth with priests who serve the copy and shadow of the heavenly things, and Satan’s equivalent Babylon.

The mystery religion has even infiltrated churches. In Revelation 2:18-28 the church has to deal with Jezebel who calls herself a prophet, who teaches the so-called deep things of Satan.

The resurrection is also a mystery. The number eight is the number of resurrection and the number of Jesus’ name is 888. Jesus offers to resurrect those who out of freewill believe in Him and make Him Lord.

Jesus said, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die.” John 11:25-26

There’ll be no freewill where Satan, his religious whore or the false prophet are concerned. Six is the number of man. The beast will also undergo a resurrection and his number is 666. That resurrection will be forced on the world through the false prophet. It will be mandated in order to buy and sell and those who refuse it will be killed.

 I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. And when I saw her, I marveled with great amazement. Revelation 17:6

Why was John so amazed? Was it because of her brilliant disguise? The Whore of Babylon is adept at hiding itself in religion. It’s had centuries of practice.

But the angel said to me, “Why did you marvel? I will tell you the mystery of the woman and of the beast that carries her, which has the seven heads and the ten horns.”

The Beast

In Revelation 13 we saw the Beast risen from the sea with heads and names of blasphemy. It has Satan’s power, throne, and great authority. One of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the world marveled and followed the beast and he was given authority to continue for forty-two months.

The beast that you saw was, and is not, and will ascend out of the bottomless pit and go to perdition. And those who dwell on the earth will marvel, whose names are not written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world, when they see the beast that was, and is not, and yet is. Revelation 17:7-8

The beast that was, and is not, is a counterfeit of Jesus, who identifies himself in Revelation 1:4 as ‘He who is, and who was, and who is to come.’

He will rise from the bottomless pit. Abaddon / Apollyon will release him in the fifth trumpet judgement of Revelation chapter 9.

Here is the mind which has wisdom: The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits. There are also seven kings. Five have fallen, one is, and the other has not yet come. And when he comes, he must continue a short time. The beast that was, and is not, is himself also the eighth, and is of the seven, and is going to perdition, Revelation 7:9-11.

Mystery Babylon sits on cities that have seven hills. There are many such places, cities like Rome, Jerusalem, Mecca, Istanbul, Amman, Athens, Washington, Brussels, Madrid, Barcelona, Edinburgh, Moscow, Prague, Tehran, Macau, Brisbane, and Bhopal. All these cities are built on seven hills.

Three of the world’s major religions are associated with the first four of these cities:

  • Judaism – Jerusalem
  • Islam – Mecca
  • Christianity – Rome for Catholicism and Istanbul for the Eastern Orthodox Church. Istanbul used to be the head of the Muslim caliphate.

The seven heads are seven empires: Babylon, Assyria, Egypt, Medo-Persia, Greece, Rome and the empire to come.

The Beast she rides will have the resurrected king; The beast that was, and is not, is himself also the eighth, and is of the seven, and is going to perdition, Revelation 17:11.

The eighth king, who is back for a second time, is the one with the fatal head wound that was healed.

Of the seven kings, five have fallen and the one who existed at the time of John would have been the Roman Caesar. In the first century, it was either Emperor Nero or Emperor Domitian. The other king has not yet come, and he is the Antichrist. He is also the eighth king, returning a second time just like Jesus, but he will only remain for 42 months.

“The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast.  

These are of one mind, and they will give their power and authority to the beast.  These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him are called, chosen, and faithful.” Revelation 17:12-14

The earliest empire was Nimrod’s and the final empire will be the Luciferian ‘New World Order’ which is being constructed now. The crowns on these horns (leaders) are diadems so they are probably from royal houses.

In the rulers’ opinion they are entitled to rule because they are the direct descendants of those believed to be ancient gods and thus they consider themselves royal. Their symbols are from the empires of Babylon, Assyria, Egypt, Medo-Persia, Greece, and Rome.

How many coats of arms, flags and company logos do you see with their symbols? Just look for symbols like a lion, bear and leopard, a corona, serpent or a five-pointed star and crescent moon.

There’ll be other symbols but the ones Daniel and John saw were the lion, bear and leopard. The lion used to have wings. Mystery Babylon will also use the counterfeit signs it’s stolen from God like the rainbow of six colours.

The waters which you saw, where the harlot sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations, and tongues. Revelation 17:15

The ‘Queen of Heaven’ is multicultural. Aided and abetted by the Beast, her rule will be worldwide. She has a global network of contacts and political power bases through which she operates.

Babylon is so big and embedded in government, culture and religion that she can’t be seen. You have to be carried away by the spirit into the wilderness to see it. In that place, she will appear as a goddess and protector of the wilderness. She will be loved and adored by the Wiccans. Babylon’s latest incarnation will be as an earth religion and her prophet will be the Beast from the Earth.

In the United Nations, her name is Gaia. She is using environmentalism, which is very sympathetic to witchcraft, to achieve Satan’s objectives – global enslavement while the earth reverts back to nature. People will be subservient to and separated from the environment.

Her followers see the earth as a living being with mankind as her consciousness, and they believe Gaia has evolved mankind and will evolve mankind into something called ‘planetary awareness.’ That’s how she’ll unite the eastern religions like Buddhism. Buddhism is associated with Lumbini in Nepal. It’s UNESCO site number is 666.

That belief system is embedded in the U.N. This has been planned for years. The Earth Charter Initiative was launched in 1994 and the ‘Ark of Hope’” was produced in 2001. The ark was made of sycamore wood and had five panels for the earth elements and ‘spirit.’

The Earth Charter was prepared on papyrus and placed inside the ark. It was made to look like the Ark of the Covenant that carried the ten commandments given to Moses and Israel. Another idolatrous counterfeit and it fits seamelessly with Agenda 21 / Agenda 2030.

It presents itself as an environmental guardian and a “new” religion. James Lovelock, Prince Charles’ mentor, said, “It just so happens that the green religion is now taking over from the Christian religion. I don’t think people have noticed that, but it’s got all the sort of terms that religions use.”

Gaia is now in bed with the United Nations and UNESCO. They’re getting ready to impose carbon taxes and a land grab through conservation banks and other environmental causes. It’s called “rewilding.” She will spread equality – everyone will be equally poor while her ministers live the good life.

She’s going to go from rich to obscenely rich, at the expense of the poor and the middle class. She’ll live in luxury, her feminist women and news presenters will be dressed in designer clothes, her religious ministers will be robed in purple and scarlet vestments and she will glitter with gold, precious stones and pearls.

And the ten horns which you saw on the beast, these will hate the harlot, make her desolate and naked, eat her flesh and burn her with fire. For God has put it into their hearts to fulfil His purpose, to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled. And the woman whom you saw is that great city which reigns over the kings of the earth. Revelation 17:16-18

The ten leaders will hate her because she’s reigning over them as an object of worship. When the ten leaders give their kingdom to the Beast they’ll be of one mind to worship only Lucifer.

Money talks and they’ll be envious and resentful. Babylon will become the capital city of the world, the dominant city in a super city alliance. It will be a smart city, a glittering, technological marvel with all the world’s wealth sucked into it. Swanky, indulgent, proud and very rich, it will be built by slave labour. Babylon’s ministers will live in luxury while everyone else ekes out a miserable existence.

Babylon might even openly mix with fallen angels and demons, her servants are certainly channelling them. People will see them as extraterrestrial beings. She will suit the Beast’s purpose, while he uses religion to accomplish his objectives. Ultimately, he’ll get rid of her because he does not intend to ‘coexist’ with her.

The Queen of Heaven

Here’s the truth about the Queen of Heaven; After the fall, mankind was separated from God. He promised a deliverer who would be born of a virgin. And God promised enmity between the serpent and the seed of the woman; “I will put enmity between you and the woman, And between your seed and her Seed; He shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise His heel. Genesis 3:15

Eve thought Cain was the man. When she bore Cain, she said, “I have acquired a man from the Lord.” Genesis 4:1

The promise is hidden in the meaning of the names of the ten patriarchs up to Noah: Adam, Seth, Enosh, Kenan, Mahalalel, Jared, Enoch, Methuselah, Lamech, Noah:

Man (is) appointed mortal sorrow; (but) the Blessed God shall come down teaching (that) His death shall bring (the) despairing rest.’

The ancients knew about the promised King and His sign from studying Astrology. That’s how the three Magi arrived in Jerusalem after the birth of Jesus Christ. They saw His sign from their observatory at Saveh in Iran (formerly Persia.)

To stop the Woman’s seed, the serpent tried to corrupt human DNA and the Nephilim were born, as mentioned in Genesis 6:4.

The flood of Noah happened as a result of this. After the flood of Noah, Babylon was the first city and it was ruled over by Nimrod, the first king and a great-grandson of Noah. Nimrod was a rebel who vowed to avenge God for the flood.

The people of Babylon knew the story of the Virgin and the man child from the Zodiac constellations of Virgo and Leo. They turned from the worship of God to the worship of the starry host.

The Biblical record of Babylon begins in Genesis 11 with the Tower of Babel that Nimrod built. The languages were mixed up and the peoples dispersed, all with pieces of the Zodiac story and memories of a great global flood.

Semiramis was the wife of Nimrod, the first ruler of Babylon. She claimed the title of the ‘Virgin and Child’ for herself and her infant son Tammuz. In ancient Egypt Nimrod, Semiramis and Tammuz came to be worshipped as Osiris, Isis and Horus.

Ever since Babel, the Whore of Babylon has claimed to be the ‘Queen of Heaven.’

In her heart she boasts ‘I sit enthroned as queen. I am not a widow; I will never mourn.’ Therefore, in one day her plagues will overtake her: death, mourning and famine. She will be consumed by fire, for mighty is the Lord God who judges her.’ Revelation 18:7

In Israel, she was named in the Bible as an idol that provoked God to jealousy.

Do you not see what they do in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem?  The children gather wood, the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead the dough, to make cakes for the queen of heaven; and they pour out drink offerings to other gods, that they may provoke Me to anger.” Jeremiah 7:17-18

Much blood has been spilled over the centuries in the name of religion. Christians were persecuted and killed until the Roman emperor Constantine converted to Christianity in the third century. In the west, Roman Catholicism became the state religion and the old gods and Roman priests were imported into the Roman church.

The so-called Queen of Heaven was imported as ‘Mary.’ The real Mary, who John knew personally, was a humble woman who would have been horrified at being identified as ‘the Queen of Heaven.’

The true church stayed underground and believers were hounded, especially during the years of the Inquisition.

Today Islam is the most obvious manifestation of this wicked spirit. Shiite Islam is based in Iran and Sunni Islam is based in Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia exports two things; oil and a virulent strain of Islam called Wahhabi Islam. You can see it on the headbands of the Islamists.

The Arabic word on the headband is ‘Bismillah’ which means ‘in the name of God. They wore a name of blasphemy and it even named an army after itself, Isis, which is another of her names.

The Queen of Heaven is still seated in the Vatican as ‘Mary’ where her sanitised image is worshipped by the Roman Catholics as the Mother of God. She is also in Mecca where the Muslims circle the Kaaba and kiss the black stone fallen from Heaven. The Kaaba, meaning ‘cube’ is the most sacred site in Islam. Mecca is 666 nautical miles from Jerusalem.

The so-called Queen of Heaven has assumed many names and identities over the years such as Astarte, Ashteroth, Inanna, Ishtar, Al-Uzza, Al-Lat, Artemis, Luna, Diana, Mary, and Isis. Their names have changed with each empire.

This entity will proclaim that the Biblical account of Mary and Jesus was lifted from the Gilgamesh Epic – not the other way round. She’ll claim that she is the real deal. There’s a problem with that – she isn’t a virgin. She’s a whore. By the time she’s finished, she will have been in seven empires and consorted with seven kings.

If she has migrated from paganism to Judaism to Islam and Christianity, she will just as easily move back home to Babylon where she originally came from.

Revelation 9: The Sixth Trumpet

Revelation 9:13-21

6th Trumpet

Then the sixth angel sounded: And I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, “Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.” So the four angels, who had been prepared for the hour and day and month and year, were released to kill a third of mankind. Revelation 9:13-15

So lets assume after the previous judgements we’ve still got three billion people left on the planet. That’s potentially one billion people wiped out.

God said in Isaiah 13:12 (see below), “I will make people scarcer than pure gold, more rare than the gold of Ophir.” In the same passage, He says, “Everyone will turn to his own people, and everyone will flee to his own land.” People will be in a panic trying to escape.

We don’t know where the four Angels are bound at the great river Euphrates but it’s a major spiritual principality and power on earth. The Euphrates is approximately 3,000 kilometres or 1,900 miles long, and it’s entirely Muslim. It starts in Turkey, then goes through Syria and Iraq before emptying into the Persian Gulf. The towns and cities it flows through are the biggest trouble spots in the world today.

In Turkey the river is dammed in several places. Beneath the lakes of these dams are ancient towns such as Samsat which was flooded by the Ataturk Dam, the third largest dam in the world.

Samsat is an interesting site near Nemrut Dagi or Mount Nemrut. Built by Antiochus 1 it is an impressive religious sanctuary on a mountain. Believing he should be numbered with the gods, Antiochus is buried up there.

Mount Nemrut, Turkey

The Euphrates flowed through Babylon in the centre of Iraq. Its remains are about 85 kilometres or 53 miles south of Baghdad. The river’s course has changed so much that most of the western part of Babylon is now submerged.

Now the number of the army of the horsemen was two hundred million; I heard the number of them. And thus I saw the horses in the vision: those who sat on them had breastplates of fiery red, hyacinth blue, and sulfur yellow; and the heads of the horses were like the heads of lions; and out of their mouths came fire, smoke, and brimstone.  

By these three plagues a third of mankind was killed—by the fire and the smoke and the brimstone which came out of their mouths.  For their power is in their mouth and in their tails; for their tails are like serpents, having heads; and with them they do harm. Revelation 9:16-19

At the blowing of the sixth trumpet a huge army will be mobilised and led by the four angels just released from the Euphrates.

This will follow hard on the heels of the locust army from the fifth trumpet.

Joel 2, An Army of Locusts

Apocalyptic 3D street art

The soldiers will scale walls without breaking formation. Mountains will be blackened with them. Leaping on the city, running on the walls, climbing into houses and entering through windows, people will scream in anguish at the sight of them.

Nothing will escape the invading hordes as they burst through defenders whose weapons will not stop them.

They run like mighty men they climb the wall like men of war; Every one marches in formation, and they do not break ranks. They do not push one another; Every one marches in his own column. Though they lunge between the weapons, they are not cut down. They run to and fro in the city, they run on the wall; They climb into the houses, they enter at the windows like a thief. Joel 2:7-9

In the Greek-Hebrew lexicon the word for ‘mighty men’ is Gibbowr, the same description used for Nimrod.

The troops are great and powerful, the likes of which have never been seen before nor ever will be again. Their mounts are not horses; they have heads like lions and tails like snakes. They will breathe fire like dragons and their tails will bite.

The riders are not from China. Because the troops number 200 million people think they must be Chinese. They will be chimeras perhaps, but not Chinese. All we know is the riders will wear breastplates of fiery red, hyacinth blue and sulphur yellow.

The land, kibbutzim, villages and farms will be scenes of desolation. There won’t be any food or pasture left after the locust demon horde has stripped the land bare. Famine will stalk the land, storehouses will be bare, barns broken down and grain crops withered. And this is described in the book of Joel.

Fire will devour before them and flames will burn after them, turning the land into a desolate wilderness. Joel mentions the army in the same chapter as the Day of the Lord, which he prophesied would be a day of thick darkness.

Whose army is this? God called it ‘his army’ in Ezekiel 38, ‘my great army’ in Joel 2:25, and in Isaiah 7:20 he describes the king of Assyria as ‘a razor that is hired.’ There are many instances in the Old Testament where God has used heathen kings to get His people to repent and turn back to him. He has repeatedly warned Israel through the prophets, but this is the most severe judgement yet.

Even though the Lord released this army, he promised he would relent if the Israelites returned to him with all their hearts, with fasting, weeping, and mourning. When this army has done its work it will be destroyed at Armageddon.

The Lord declared, ‘But I will remove far from you the northern army, and will drive him away into a barren and desolate land, with his face toward the eastern sea and his back toward the western sea; His stench will come up, and his foul odour will rise, because he has done monstrous things.’ Joel 2:20

In the midst of this tumult, there is salvation. In Joel 2:32 the Lord promises, “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

The Great Tribulation will be a time of open spiritual warfare. We know a third of mankind will be killed by the horsemen. What will happen to the two-thirds who survive?

But the rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands, that they should not worship demons, and idols of gold, silver, brass, stone, and wood, which can neither see nor hear nor walk. And they did not repent of their murders or their sorceries or their sexual immorality or their thefts. Revelation 9:20-21

The word sorceries is translated as ‘pharmakos.’ They may not be able to repent because they’re enslaved by drugs or pharmakeia. Will the Mark of the Beast destroy their free will?


Notes

Isaiah 13

Verses 2-5; As well as commanding His sanctified ones, the LORD will also call mighty ones for his anger – those who rejoice in his exaltation;

Lift up a banner on the high mountain, Raise your voice to them;
Wave your hand, that they may enter the gates of the nobles.
I have commanded My sanctified ones;
I have also called My mighty ones for My anger—
Those who rejoice in My exaltation.”

The noise of a multitude in the mountains, Like that of many people!
A tumultuous noise of the kingdoms of nations gathered together!
The Lord of hosts musters the army for battle.
They come from a far country, From the end of heaven—
The Lord and His weapons of indignation,
To destroy the whole land.”

Verse 9

This will happen in the Day of the Lord,

Behold, the day of the Lord comes, Cruel, with both wrath and fierce anger,
To lay the land desolate; And He will destroy its sinners from it.
For the stars of heaven and their constellations will not give their light;
The sun will be darkened in its going forth, And the moon will not cause its light to shine.

Verses 13

Here we see the fourth trumpet judgement of Revelation 8; Therefore I will shake the heavens, And the earth will move out of her place, In the wrath of the Lord of hosts, And in the day of His fierce anger.

Verse 17

The army will come from an area that historically belonged to the Medes. Israel has been invaded by an army from this empire thousands of years ago but the prophecy also has a future fulfilment; “Behold, I will stir up the Medes against them,”

Verses 19-20

Babylon, which has never been destroyed, will be destroyed;

And Babylon, the glory of kingdoms, The beauty of the Chaldeans’ pride, will be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah. It will never be inhabited, Nor will it be settled from generation to generation; Nor will the Arabian pitch tents there, Nor will the shepherds make their sheepfolds there.

Revelation 9: The Fifth Trumpet and First Woe

Revelation 9

And I looked, and I heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, “Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth, because of the remaining blasts of the trumpet of the three angels who are about to sound!” Revelation 8:13

The four earth judgements were from the heavens being shaken. Now something really bad is about to come, not from space this time but from inside the earth.

Rational, materialistic, scientific man will not be ready for this, any more than they were ready for Apollyon to manifest himself in the fire and smoke of 911. Watch out.

5th Trumpet

Then the fifth angel sounded: And I saw a star fallen from heaven to the earth. To him was given the key to the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit, and smoke arose out of the pit like the smoke of a great furnace. So the sun and the air were darkened because of the smoke of the pit. Then out of the smoke locusts came upon the earth. And to them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. Revelation 9:1-3

We have no terms of reference for this – creatures from the pit invading the earth. The closest I can think of is a film called “The Mist,” where residents in a Maine village are trapped by a mist hiding nightmarish creatures. They learn that a government project to discover other dimensions was underway at a nearby base, and the scientists may have opened a doorway into a dimension containing the creatures invading the town.

But that was a movie. This is prophecy.

These creatures from Revelation aren’t ordinary locusts, they sting like scorpions and they’re not interested in the vegetation – only those who don’t have the seal of God to protect them; They were commanded not to harm the grass of the earth, or any green thing, or any tree, but only those men who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads. And they were not given authority to kill them, but to torment them for five months. Revelation 9:4-5

The fifth trumpet judgement will last for five months, the lifespan of a locust.

In those days men will seek death and will not find it; they will desire to die, and death will flee from them. Revelation 9:5

Perhaps men are not able to die because the Mark of the Beast has made them immortal and they’re no longer human.

The shape of the locusts was like horses prepared for battle. On their heads were crowns of something like gold, and their faces were like the faces of men. They had hair like women’s hair, and their teeth were like lions’ teeth. And they had breastplates like breastplates of iron, and the sound of their wings was like the sound of chariots with many horses running into battle. They had tails like scorpions, and there were stings in their tails. Their power was to hurt men five months. Revelation 9:7-10

These creatures may have been on the earth in ancient times. Scorpion men are featured in several Akkadian language myths, including the Enûma Elish and the Babylonian version of the Epic of Gilgamesh. They were also known as aqrabuamelu or girtablilu. The Scorpion Men are described to have the head, torso, and arms of a man and the body of a scorpion.

Wikipedia: Scorpion man

And they had as king over them the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, but in Greek he has the name Apollyon. Revelation 9:11

911 and Revelation 9:11. Coincidence?

Apollyon / Abbadon is known as ‘the Destroyer.’ Here he is captured on 911 an AP image, gloating from the smoke – and the world saw it. Or didn’t see it. That Associated Press image had not been manipulated. It was even seen in the smoke on the news videos.

Scorpion man

The locusts can only torment those men who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads. Jesus initially sent twelve and then sent seventy or seventy-two workers into the harvest field. Now the 144,000 will complete the work. They will be like lambs among wolves but protected by Jesus.

Then the seventy returned with joy, saying, “Lord, even the demons are subject to us in Your name.”

And He said to them, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.  Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rather rejoice because your names are written in heaven.”

Luke 10:17-20

We’re not in the Tribulation yet, but we are being harangued by the our governments to have unapproved gene therapy in the name of a so-called pandemic. This is the start of transhumanism. Don’t fear the wolves in charge of the sheep or their baying media hounds – fear God.

Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge,
Even the Most High, your dwelling place,
No evil shall befall you,
Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;
For He shall give His angels charge over you,
To keep you in all your ways.
In their hands they shall bear you up,
Lest you dash your foot against a stone.
You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra,
The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.

Psalm 91

Revelation 13, The Beast out of the Earth

Revelation 13:11-18

 Then I saw a second beast, coming out of the earth. It had two horns like a lamb, but it spoke like a dragon.  It exercised all the authority of the first beast on its behalf, and made the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose fatal wound had been healed.  Revelation 13:11-12

The Beast from the earth is the false prophet, a religious figure with the appearance of a lamb and the mouth of a devil.

He could be a pope. The pope lives in a palace with staggering riches in Rome, a city built on seven hills.

The Vatican is still a Roman power base and it appears it’s a site for Apollo worship. I’ve been there and it seemed rather pagan with idols and graven statues everywhere. In Saint Peter’s Square there’s an Egyptian obelisk surrounded by a circle with a cross in the centre which is a symbol for Baal and evidence of sun worship.

Even if the Roman Catholic church loses a lot of people after they depart in the Harpazo, the Vatican will still hold all the riches, and the pope will continue to wield power and influence. The pope will probably have more influence after an event like that as the remaining people will come flocking to him for answers. Deception will reign with confusion.

Jesus warned, “For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.” Matthew 24:24

Counterfeits will rise and just like Pharaoh’s magicians they’ll perform great signs and wonders – as will the Second Beast, the False Prophet.

The Unholy Trinity

The False Prophet will be part of an unholy trinity with the dragon and the Beast from the Sea. The trinity is described in Revelation 16:13 where they summon the kings of the earth to Armageddon;

And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs coming out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.

Signs like Elijah

Israel is waiting for Elijah, who, according to the prophet Malachi will come before the Day of the Lord:

Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord: And he shall turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.” Malachi 4:5-6

Elijah caused fire to come down from Heaven on his altar, defeating Baal whose sacrifice remained untouched. The account is in 1 Kings 18:16-40.

The counterfeit will try to do the same. Revelation 13:13 states the false prophet “performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men.”

Because of the signs it was given power to perform on behalf of the first beast, it deceived the inhabitants of the earth. It ordered them to set up an image in honor of the beast who was wounded by the sword and yet lived.

The second beast was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that the image could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed.  

Human life will be held cheap. The Beast system will believe the population has to be controlled so it won’t mourn when non-compliant humans are culled. It doesn’t have feelings.

Artificial Intelligence will believe the earth is overpopulated based on the lies and faulty premises it’s been fed. It will mirror the ideology of its creators. Garbage in equals garbage out.

One of the seven heads of the first beast has already undergone some form of resurrection and so now the Beast from the earth is going to ‘offer’ that to everyone.

When John the Baptist walked the earth in the time of Jesus he told people the Kingdom of God was at hand and to repent of their sins and be baptised. Jesus said in Matthew 11:14 that John the Baptist was ‘Elijah who is to come,’ meaning he was a type.

Unlike John the Baptist the False Prophet will be an evangelist for the devil and he’ll be be offering damnation instead of salvation.

The Mark of the Beast

He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.

Revelation 13:11-18

The mark will likely be part of the ‘Internet of Bodies’ the technocrats are planning to integrate with the ‘Internet of Things.’ It won’t be wearable, it will be embedded. Who knows, perhaps people will be offered shelter in capsule hotels and a place in the metaverse in return for taking the mark.

Maybe that’s what Klaus Schwab of the World Economic Forum means by “you will own nothing and be happy.”

Those who refuse the mark will die from beheading, from the description of the martyrs in Revelation 20:4: “And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony about Jesus and because of the word of God. They had not worshipped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands.”

This is the dystopian, technocratic, cashless 5G or 6G future of the system designed for people to be economically enslaved in.

The reason the prophet Daniel went pale when he saw it (Daniel 7:28) was because this world empire will demand men’s souls. Take the mark and you will damn yourself.

Internet of Bodies

There are three generations of Internet of Bodies that include:

Body external: These are wearable devices such as Apple Watches or Fitbits that can monitor our health.

Body internal: These include pacemakers, cochlear implants, and digital pills that go inside our bodies to monitor or control various aspects of our health.

Body embedded: The third generation of the Internet of Bodies is embedded technology where technology and the human body are melded together and have a real-time connection to a remote machine.

Revelation 13, The Beast from the Sea

Revelation 13

In the time of the harpazo – or the rapture, a great fiery red dragon will pull a third of the stars from the sky. Draco is one of two signs which will appear in Heaven and it fits with the sixth seal judgement where the stars fall from the sky.

The Dragon is a power as well as a sign in the heavens. In Revelation 12:3 it has seven heads and ten horns and seven diadems on his heads. Now it’s come down to the Earth.

John is back to earth as well, writing from the vantage of the island of Patmos where he is standing on the sand of the sea. The Sea is the Mediterranean. He is watching the final incarnation of the world government.

In Revelation 13:1 John wrote, “Then I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name.”

The beast rising from the sea is going to get Satan’s power, his throne, and great authority. This global shadow government has already been formed and now the dragon has been confined to earth he is going to slot right into it. The world government is going to lose three horns in the process.

Leopard, Bear, Lion

Now the beast which I saw was like a leopard, his feet were like the feet of a bear and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. The dragon gave him his power, his throne and great authority. Revelation 13:2

The god of Babylon, Medo-Persia, and Greece will arise. The Greeks and Romans knew him as Apollo. It will be the same god Nimrod served. Nimrod means to rebel.

The Beast will be used for judgement on the nation of Israel, as the prophet Hosea warned in Hosea 13:7-8.

These are the same as the four beasts that Daniel saw emerge from the Great Sea, the Mediterranean, except John described them as a composite and Daniel described them as sequential.

The beast is described in Daniel 7:1-6: as the lion with wings, the bear, the leopard and the fourth beast with ten horns. The lion originally had wings (verse 4, perhaps meaning angelic) but these were torn off. It was lifted from the ground so it stood on two feet like a human being and the mind of a human was given to it.

The beast will have the attributes of Babylon, Medo-Persia and the eastern part of the Greek empire which broke into four regions after the death of Alexander the Great.

The fourth beast was not likened to an animal predator but to something technological or industrial, like a machine, a technocracy. It was described as dreadful and terrible, exceedingly strong with huge iron teeth.

The King that will arise

Daniel prophesied, ‘In the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors have reached their fullness, a king shall arise, having fierce features, who understands sinister schemes. His power shall be mighty, but not by his own power; He shall destroy fearfully.’ Daniel 8:23-24

The beast that was, and is not, is himself also the eighth, and is of the seven

At mid-point of the Tribulation, the Antichrist and the Beast will be as one. The apostle John describes him as one of ten leaders in a global government built from seven successive empires, depicting him as a beast coming out of the sea.

The seven heads are successive empires – Babylon, Assyria, Egypt, Medo-Persia, Greece, Rome and the empire to come. John described them that way in Revelation 17:10-11;

Five have fallen, one is, and the other has not yet come. And when he comes, he must continue a short time. The beast that was, and is not, is himself also the eighth, and is of the seven, and is going to perdition.

The beast will come back a second time from an earlier empire. In their attempt to mimic Jesus, the Antichrist will undergo some sort of resurrection.

John saw the Beast and said; “And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the world marveled and followed the beast.  So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?”” Revelation 13:3-4

Later in the same chapter, Revelation 13:14, John described the counterfeit as “the beast who was wounded by the sword and yet lived.

The Beast from the Sea is one of the dragon’s heads. The lawless one who will lead the world government. He will proffer an explanation for the disappearances, none of it true. I wouldn’t be surprised if God was portrayed as a hostile extra-terrestrial.

He will rule for 42 months

And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to continue for forty-two months.  Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven.  

It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation.  All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. Revelation 13:5-8

If anyone has an ear, let him hear. He who leads into captivity shall go into captivity; he who kills with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints. Revelation 13:9

The world will believe in the false Christ’s strong leadership and the answers he will give as the power behind the throne of the world government. They will look to him to solve the world’s problems. His government will perform miracles and the world will think the Beast from the Sea is their messiah. He will make Hitler look like a choir boy.

The Strong Delusion

The truth of creation has been suppressed in order to espouse the lie of evolution. This will lead to God’s wrath.

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them.

For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened.  Professing to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things. Romans 1:18-31

The lie of evolution has lead to humanism and humanism is leading to man believing they can improve on evolution with transhumanism. Anyone believing that lie is going to be deluded into following the lawless one. He will take them into Human 2.0.

Paul wrote in 2 Thessalonians 2:7 that the lawless one won’t be revealed until the restrainer is taken out of the way.

The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders,  and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.  And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie,  that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness. 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12
