  • “The world has been closely observing the path that current events have taken over the past two years. Leading the way have been catastrophic natural disasters such as fires, floods, earthquakes, and famine. Then, the COVID-19 virus emerged, followed by the devastating Russo-Ukrainian war, and if that weren’t enough, here came the Hamas-Israeli conflict. Never in the history of modern times have all the signs that Christ foretold of tumbled upon humanity all at once.”


    24:3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what [shall be] the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?

  • 24:4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
  • 24:5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
  • 24:6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all [these things] must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
  • 24:7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

24:8 All these [are] the beginning of sorrows.

Despite the many wars and rumors of wars that are on foot  today,  a war that involves ISRAEL can not be taken lightly because it will be highly  prophetic and our very  soul salvation may depend on a proper understanding of this issue.

  • Luke 21:22 For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.
  • 21:23 But woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck, in those days! for there shall be great distress in the land, and wrath upon this people.
  • 21:24 And they shall fall by the edge of the sword and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.
  • 21:25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;
  • 21:26 Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.
  • 21:27 And then shall they see the son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.

Sad to say, the Scripture paint a very dismal future for these anti-Christian Jews now living in Palestine.   Their forefathers have charted out their unfortunate destiny.

  • Mark 15:12 And Pilate answered and said again unto them, what will ye then that I shall do [unto him] whom ye call the King of the Jews?
  • 15:13 And they cried out again, Crucify him.
  • 15:14 Then Pilate said unto them, why, what evil hath he done? And they cried out the more exceedingly, Crucify him.
  • 27:24 When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but [that] rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed [his] hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye [to it].
  • 27:25 Then answered all the people, and said, His blood [be] on us, and on our children.

The prophet Zechariah outlined the latter-day fate of JERUSALEM.

Zech.   14:1 Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee.

14:2  For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.

Having now seen prophetically that in the last days there is to be a WORLD WAR centered in Palestine  and Jerusalem   will be sieged not because she is militarily weak but because the curse of God hangs over it.  The HAMAS invasion of ISRAEL on SEPTEMBER 7th, 2023, seems to be a foretaste of what is yet to come.  This should serve as a warning to those who ally with Jews (Zionists).  Historical  record shows  that great nations fell when they were best armed and independent of GOD.

There is no good news either for the enemies of Jews

Zech 14:3,12,13 Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle…     And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.

14:13 And it shall come to pass in that day, [that] a great tumult from the LORD shall be among them; and they shall lay hold every one on the hand of his neighbour, and his hand shall rise up against the hand of his neighbour.

Zeph.  2:4    For Gaza shall be forsaken, and Ashkelon a desolation: they shall drive out Ashdod at the noon day, and Ekron shall be rooted up.

2:5    Woe unto the inhabitants of the sea coast, the nation of the Cherethites! the word of the LORD [is] against you; O Canaan, the land of the Philistines, I will even destroy thee, that there shall be no inhabitant.

The faithful  remnant will then  return and process  the land  and live in pease.

2:6     And the sea coast shall be dwellings [and] cottages for shepherds, and folds for flocks.

2:7    And the coast shall be for the remnant of the house of Judah; they shall feed thereupon: in the houses of Ashkelon shall they lie down in the evening: for the LORD their God shall visit them, and turn away their captivity.

God is soon to miraculously intervein in the activities of the Middle/East and demonstrate to the world that he still  controls the affairs of mankind and that he intend to restore JERUSALEM to the dispersed Christian Israelites of today not ZIONISTS JEWS OR ARABS.

After this prophetic war in which both Jews and Arabs miraculously defeated God will miraculously   restore the Land of Palestine to the remnant of the 12 Tribes (no  2 tribes – Jews)  from all over the world. Zechariah continues to say:

Zech. 14:11  And [men] shall dwell in it, and there shall be no more utter destruction; but Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited.

Zech. 8:2 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; I was jealous for Zion with great jealousy, and I was jealous for her with great fury.

8:3 Thus saith the LORD; I am returned unto Zion, and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and Jerusalem shall be called a city of truth; and the mountain of the LORD of hosts the holy mountain.

8:4 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; There shall yet old men and old women dwell in the streets of Jerusalem, and every man with his staff in his hand for very age.

 Dear friends this is God’s agenda  for the HOLY  LAND   that need to be made known  internationally.  Please help us spread this   unprecedented  news.

Jer31:10     Hear the word of the LORD, O ye nations, and declare [it] in the isles afar off, and say, He that scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him, as a shepherd [doth] his flock.   

With the aforementioned thoughts, please continue read  this step by step the  study of the MORE SURE WORD OF GOD  it relates to the   LAND OF PALITINE


“On one occasion, when in New York City, I was in the night season called upon to behold buildings rising story after storytoward heaven. These buildings were warranted to be fireproof, and they were erected to glorify their owners and builders. Higher and still higher these buildings rose, and in them the most costly materials was used.

“I thought: ` Oh, that those who are thus investing their means could see their course as God sees it! They are piling up magnificent buildings, but how foolish in the sight of the Ruler of the universe is their planning and devising. They are not studying with all the powers of heart and mind how they may glorify God. They have lost sight of this, the first duty of man.

“As these lofty buildings went up, the owners rejoiced with ambitious pride that they had money to use in gratifying self and provoking the envy of their neighbors. The time is coming when in their fraud and insolence men will reach a point that the Lord will not permit them to pass, and they will learn that there is a limit to the forbearance of Jehovah.

“The scene that next passed before me was an alarm of fire. Men looked at the lofty and supposedly fireproof buildings and said: `They are perfectly safe.’ But these buildings were consumed

as if made of pitch. The fire engines could do nothing to stay the destruction. The firemen were unable to operate the engines.

“I am instructed that when the Lord’s time comes, should no change have taken place in the hearts of proud, ambitious human beings, men will find that the hand that had been strong to save will be strong to destroy. No earthly power can stay the hand of God. No material can be used in the erection of buildings that will preserve them from destructionwhen God’s appointed time comesto send retribution on men for their disregard of His law and for their selfish ambition.”{Testimonies to the Church, vol. 9, pp. 11, 12, 13}.

“While appearing to the children of men as a great physician who can heal all their maladies, he will bring disease and disaster, until populous cities are reduced to ruin and desolation. Even now he is at work. In accidents and calamities by sea and by land, in great conflagrations, in fierce tornadoes and terrific hailstorms, in tempests, floods, cyclones, tidal waves, and earthquakes, in every place and in a thousand forms, Satan is exercising his power. He sweeps away the ripening harvest, and famine and distress follow. He imparts to the air a deadly taint, and thousands perish by the pestilence.” {The Great Controversy, p. 589, 590}.

There are many un-precedented crises that are transpiring in the world today, that are baffling the minds of great men, within and without the church. As for us who are in the SDA church many of these incidents seem not to be correlating with our prophetic expectations. The escalating Mid East crisis has been very outstanding for decades, but seeing that it, apparently has nothing to do with the Mark of the Beast or the #666 it seems not to catch much attention. The attack on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon on September 11, 2001 has caught us all off guard, so much so that it led the country to cry out to God. This barbarous act has sent a shock wave throughout the world. With America and her allies involved in a war against terrorism in Afghanistan and Iraq, and an ever ongoing conflict between Israel Iran, Hezbollah and Hamas, many news media are now labeling this as the beginning of World War III. In previous publications we have explained in detail the prophecies which predict a World War, with Israel at the epicenter. We will endeavor again to address this issue hoping that you will see the validity and significance of ourwarning message. We are very much concerned about the prophecy of Daniel 11:44, 45 in relation to current events.

Daniel 11:45.And he (the king of the north) shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him. But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many.

Daniel 12:1, 2.“And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation [even] to that same time: …”

Here it says the King of the North will plant the Tabernacles of his palace between the seas of the Glorious Holy Mountain (Palestine) and he shall come to his endand none shall help him. In the booklet by Sister White and James White entitled: “A Word To The Little Flock,” pp. 8, 9, it is clearly stated that the King of the North in Daniel 11:45 is the Two Horn Beast (Rev. 13:11-18) – the USA), and we quote:

“That Jesus rose up, and shut the door, and came to the Ancient of days, to receive His kingdom, at the 7thmonth, 1844, I fully believe. See Luke 13:25; Mat. 25:10; Dan. 7:13, 14. But the standing up of Michael, Dan. 12:1, appears to be another event, for another purpose.Michael is to stand up at the time that the last power in chapter 11, comes to his end, and none to help him. This power is the last that treads down the true church of God: and as the true church is still trodden down, and cast out by all Christendom, it follows that the last oppressive power has not `come to his end;’ and Michael has not stood up.This last power that treads down the saints is brought to view in Rev. 13:11-18. His number is 666.”

Some un-authoritatively teach that the King of the North in Dan. 11:45 is the Papacy but that does not fit into current events nor the prophecy. Daniel 11:45 is pointing to a major Arab, Israeli/USA war–World War III. A war in which overall Daniel 11:45 is saying, is that the USA/England (King of the North) will eventually get themselves bogged down and humiliated in a military confrontation in the Middle East, from which no one will come to their help. They will be humiliated. This is not because they are outmatched, but because God so dictates. Their humiliation and non reception of help suggests that the USA will eventually become estranged from the United Nations. The U.N. thus having become non-effective may ultimately be replaced by the womanBABYLON THE GREAT(Rev. 17) the supposed remedy for the world’s problems. This woman Babylon represents the forthcoming predicted One-World, religio-political-commercial empire to be instigated by the USA in the time of the Mark of the Beast. (Rev. 13:15, 16). This will then bring about the great Time of Trouble in Daniel 12:1, at which time Michael will have to stand up to deliver the saints whose names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life. What will the President’s road map to peace (some Palestinian refer to it as the road map to hell) in the Mid-East evolve into? Only time will tell. Stay with us now as we view the present world crisis through the super lenses of the “more sure Word of prophecy.”


Before we get in-depth into the Mideast crisis we would like to illustrate how intimately connected is the Mideast conflict and the Judgment of the Living in the house of God.

“Different periods in the history of the church have each been marked by the development of some special truth, adapted to the necessities of God’s people at that time. Every new truth has made its way against hatred and opposition; those who were blessed with its light were tempted and tried.The Lord gives a special truth for the people in an emergency. Who dare refuse to publish it? He commands His servants to present the last invitation of mercy to the world. They cannot remain silent, except at the peril of their souls. Christ’s ambassadors have nothing to do with consequences. They must perform their duty and leave results with God.”{TheGreat Controversy p. 609.1}.

Providentially this third quarter Sabbath School Lesson is on the judgment, but how many of us realize that the judgment is in two phases that of the dead and the living. Surprisingly enough the time line of the Judgment of the Living is very much linked with a war in Palestine. With the current world crisis and Mid-East development it becomes very necessary and appropriate to elaborate on this issue so that as the remnant church we may be prepared for the final crisis.

If God saw fit to send a message to us pertaining to the Judgment of the Dead, how much more necessary is it to inform us of the details of the Judgment of the Living.Pertaining to the Judgment of the Living, Inspiration says:

Solemn are the scenes connected with the closing work of the atonement. Momentous are the interests involved therein. The judgment is now passing in the sanctuary above. For many years this work has been in progress. Soon–none know how soon–it will pass to the cases of the living. In the awful presence of God our lives are to come up in review. At this time, above all others, it behooves every soul to heed the Saviour’s admonition: “Watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.” Mark 13:33. “If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.” Revelation 3:3. {The Great Controversy p. 490.1}

The Investigative Judgment of the Dead is just a mere book work. That is to say the Lord is to cleanse the books in Heaven of the unworthy names. With the Judgment of the Living on earth He is to cleanse His church of the unworthy members so that He can have a church without spot or wrinkle at His second coming. The following references testify of this fact.

Malachi 3:1-4.“Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts. But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he [is] like a refiner’s fire, and like fullers’ soap: And he shall sit [as] a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness.

Then shall the offering of Judah and Jerusalem be pleasant unto the LORD, as in the days of old, and as in former years.”

We all will agree that the coming of the Lord is near, but that has been the Christian expectation for the past 2000 years. What evidence do we have to validate such an expectation as it relates to the current world events. Let us bear in mind that before the second coming of the Lord He is to have a pure sanctified church reflecting His image. Before going into detailed exposition on the Judgment for the living, the following Scripture will make us aware of what that will entail.

Isaiah 4:1-4.“And in that day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying, We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel: only let us be called by thy name, to take away our reproach. In that day shall the branch of the LORD be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the earth [shall be] excellent and comely for them that are escaped of Israel. And it shall come to pass, [that he that is] left in Zion, and [he that] remaineth in Jerusalem, shall be called holy, [even]every one that iswritten among the living in Jerusalem: When the Lord shall have washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and shall have purged the blood of Jerusalem from the midst thereof by the spirit of judgment, and by the spirit of burning..”

According to Jeremiah 6:2, “woman” represents a church. Seven is a symbol of completeness. Thus all church members are baptized in the name of Jesus (the one Man),-and are called Christians, but choose to put on their own apparel of self righteousness and eat their own spiritual food, which results in a deplorable condition in God’s church. This necessitates the Lord’s intervention to cleanse His church as is further seen from the following passage.

“God declares: “Behold, I will send My messenger, and he shall prepare the way before Me; and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to His temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in; behold He shall come, saith the Lord of Hosts.” The Lord comes to His temple to find those who are sincere. He measures the worshippers. He knows those who are true-hearted and self-sacrificing. “Who may abide the day of His coming; and who shall stand when He appeareth?” Who will stand in the day of investigation. This does not mean the time when the books are opened. It is a preparatory work. “For He is like a refiner’s fire and like fuller’s soap.” To those who have felt unconcerned, the Spirit comes as a reprover, and shows them that they need to do something to cleanse the temple. He investigates the temple and the worshippers thereof. “He shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver; and He shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto God an offering in righteousness.”

“Page after page might be written in regard to these things. Whole conferences are becoming leavened with the same perverted principles. “For the rich men thereof are full of violence, and the inhabitants thereof have spoken lies, and their tongue is deceitful in their mouth.” The Lord will work to purify His church.I tell you in truth, the Lord is about to turn and overturn in the institutions called by His name. Just how soon this refining process will begin I cannot say, but it will not be long deferred. He whose fan is in His hand will cleanse His temple of its moral defilement. He will thoroughly purge His floor.{Testimonies to Ministers, pp. 372, 373}.

Malachi indicates that this purifying process will be a surprise to the church, they were not expecting it, and that is why it was a sudden coming of the Lord to His temple. Foremost pertaining to the living, Malachi said that the purified living ones will then offer an offering in righteousness unto the Lord.

Let us also be informed that the Judgment of the Living is in two sections; one for the church, and the other for those in Babylon,-the world.

1 Peter 4:17.“For the time [is come] that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if [it] first [begin] at us, what shall the end [be] of them that obey not the gospel of God? “

“There are many with whom the Spirit of God is striving. The time of God’s destructive judgments is the time of mercy for those who have had no opportunity to learn what is truth. Tenderly will the Lord look upon them. His heart of mercy is touched; His hand is still stretched out to save, while the door is closed to those who would not enter.” {Testimonies for the Church, vol.9 p. 97}.


Joel 3:9-16.“Proclaim ye this among the Gentiles; Prepare war, wake up the mighty men, let all the men of war draw near; let them come up: Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruninghooks into spears: let the weak say, I [am] strong. Assemble yourselves, and come, all ye heathen, and gather yourselves together round about: thither cause thy mighty ones to come down, O LORD. Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there willI sit to judgeall the heathen round about.Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the vats overflow; for their wickedness [is] great. Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for theday of the LORD[is] near in the valley of decision. The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining.The LORD also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the LORD [will be] the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel.”

This says it all. The nations are girding themselves for war. The weak nations and armies without uniform and identity are challenging and threatening the super powers even at the sacrifice of food for weapons, (turning their plowshares into spears).

Imagine the present war against terrorism on many fronts and in many countries. The constant threats of terrorists’ attacks; what great fear will enshroud humanity? The world is about to be plunged into such a catastrophe that it has never before seen or imagined.

Calamities will bring such fear, upheavals and financial economical stress and insecurity that many souls will be brought into the valley of decision concerning their soul’s salvation. Only thus could the spiritual harvest be ripened and the Lord puts in His sickle and gathers in a great harvest of souls. The present distress of nations is a part of the plan of God to bring multitudes to the saving knowledge of God. What a mighty God we serve. How else could a loving God save the millions of saints that are intermingled and are trapped among the many religions of today.

It was the mercy of God that thousands should suffer, to prevent the necessity of visiting judgments upon millions. In order to save the many, He must punish the few.” {Patriarchs & Prophets, p.325}.

Get ready, get ready, surrender your souls to God, He is even at the door.

Jeremiah reiterates:

Jeremiah 25:31-33.“A noise shall come [even] to the ends of the earth; for the LORD hath a controversy with the nations, he will plead with all flesh; he will give them [that are] wicked to the sword, saith the LORD. Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Behold, evil shall go forth from nation to nation, and a great whirlwind shall be raised up from the coasts of the earth. And the slain of the LORD shall be at that day from [one] end of the earth even unto the [other] end of the earth: they shall not be lamented, neither gathered, nor buried; they shall be dung upon the ground.”


Isaiah 2:2-4And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the Lord’s house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it. And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zionshall go forth the law, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shallbeat their swordsintoplowshares, andtheir spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore.”

God is soon to exalt His mountain (His church) above all churches on earth, and many nations will eventually turn to God andlearn war no more. The Scriptures clearly state that after the Lord manifests Himself through His church, the warring nations that turn to the Lord will convert their weapons of war into farming tools. Later we will see why this phenomenon takes place when the Lord roars from Zion and utters His voice from Jerusalem. (Joel 3:3-17). Better days are ahead of us. This same truth is repeated in Micah 4:2-4.

Micah 4:1-4But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the Lord shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it. And many nations shall come and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, and to the house of the God of Jacob, and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. And he shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and theyshall beat their swords into plowshares, andtheir spears into pruninghooks:nation shall not lift up a sword against nation,neither shall they learn war any more. But they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree;and none shall make them afraid: for the mouth of the Lord of hosts hath spoken it.”

Please observe the relationship of theLord’s judgmentand the harvesting of the saints. They are referring to the same event. Speaking of the same event Matthew says:

Matthew 25:31, 32.“When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall hesit upon the throne of his glory: And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth [his] sheep from the goats:”

The throne of His glory is His glorified, purified kingdom church operating from Jerusalem. The warfare brought to view in Joel is not just any war, but a war that is fought just prior to the Lord sitting on the throne of His Glory to judge the nations, and reaping the final harvest of the earth. a time of war and terror men are more receptive tothe Gospel, hence the ripening of the spiritual harvest. This is the time the Bible refers to as “darkness shall cover the earth and gross darkness the people.” (Isa. 60:2). Speaking of this great final harvesting of souls we read:

“ Among earth’s inhabitants, scattered in every land, there are those who have not bowed the knee to Baal. Like the stars of heaven, which appear only at night, these faithful ones will shine forth when darkness covers the earth and gross darkness the people. In heathen Africa, in the Catholic lands of Europe and of South America, in China, in India, in the islands of the sea, and in all the dark corners of the earth, God has in reserve a firmament of chosen ones that will yet shine forth amidst the darkness, revealing clearly to an apostate world the transforming power of obedience to His law. Even now they are appearing in every nation, among every tongue and people; and in the hour of deepest apostasy, when Satan’s supreme effort is made to cause “all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond,” to receive, under penalty of death, the sign of allegiance to a false rest day, these faithful ones, “blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke,” will “shine as lights in the world.” Revelation 13:16; Philippians 2:15. The darker the night, the more brilliantly will they shine.”{Prophets & Kings, pp. 188, 189}.


Jeremiah 25:30, 31— “Therefore prophesy thou against them all these words, and say unto them, The Lord shall roar from on high, and utter His voice from His holy habitation; He shall mightily roar upon His habitation; He shall give a shout, as they that tread the grapes, against all the inhabitants of the earth.A noise shall come even to the ends of the earth; for the Lord hath a controversy with the nations,He will plead with all flesh; He will give them that are wicked to the sword, saith the Lord.”

The wicked will be destroyed.

Jeremiah 25:32— “Thus saith the Lord of hosts Behold,evil shall go forth from nation to nation, and agreat whirlwindshall be raised up from the coasts of the earth.”

Evil will go forth from nation to nation, for God will call for a sword upon all the inhabitants of the earth. It means war.

Jeremiah 25:33— “And theslain of the Lord shall be at that day from one end of the earth evenunto the other end of the earth: they shall not be lamented, neither gathered, nor buried; they shall be dung upon the ground.”

This verse is not describing the conditions that will prevail as a result of the coming of the brightness of the Lord when He comes in the clouds. This is a slaughter from the great whirlwind of Jer. 25:32.It is from war: Why should the Lord first bring this on Judah and Jerusalem and then to the nations? Because they had the greatest light and therefore they had the least reason to be wicked. Then when this war starts in the time of the deliverance of God’s people, the most enlightened people will suffer first. Please return now to:

Jeremiah 30:23— “Behold, the whirlwind of the Lord goeth forth with fury, acontinuing whirlwind: it shall fall with pain upon the head of the wicked.”

This whirlwind is warfare whichdoes not arrive and then quickly die out. It stays long. It is to start in the latter end of the time God’s people are scattered among the Gentiles just before His people are delivered.

Americas’ New War was called “Infinite Justice” but was later changed to “Endurance Freedom.” Both names indicate along continuing war. Do not expect all the prophecies herein treated will all be fulfilled over night. They might not be fulfilled right away, but in God’s own time they will come to pass. This is just a call for “revival and reformation” among God’s people as we face the untried future.



“The Bible reveals that the God of the universe chose to establish His earthly throne at the physical center of the world. This disclosure was made through the great Jewish prophet Ezekiel: Thus saith the Lord God: This is Jerusalem; I have set her in the midst of the nations and countries that are round about her.’ (Eze. 5:5). Widespread belief that Jerusalem is truly situated at the geographical heart of the planet is even reflected in the common term for the region, Middle East.

Spiritually speaking, the holy city also lies at the apex of many people’s religious affections. No fewer than three faiths regard Jerusalem as sacred. More than two billion self-professing Christians–from the Philippines to Argentina, from Siberia to South Africa, indeed from virtually every nation on Earth–gaze toward Earth’s central city with reverent eyes. More than one billion Muslims also hold Jerusalem in high esteem, even though their primary hallowed sites are in nearby Saudi Arabia. And although the Jewish people are far fewer in number, they undeniably look to the Old City’s Temple Mount as the earthly center of their faith, as they have done for more than 3,000 years.

“Consequently, Jerusalem is sacred to around half the people on earth. This fact alone helps explain why Israel’s growing capital city has now become the lightning rod of world media attention and the future address of Earth’s final conflict. “ [Excerptsfrom “Israel My Glory” orwww.foigm.orgIMG/epicentr.htm)

HezbollahorHizbollah/HizbullahorHezb’Allah(Arabic: meaningParty of God) is a governmental and military Shia Islamic group, with a military arm and a civilian arm, founded in 1982 to fight the Israeli Defense Forces who occupied southern Lebanon until the year 2000. Its leader is Nasrallah. Hezbollah was “inspired by the success of the Iranian Revolution” and was formed primarily to combat Israel following the 1982 Lebanon War. The United States and Israel say that Hezbollah has received financial and political assistance, as well as weapons and training, from Iran and Syria. Syria says it supports Hezbollah, but denies supplying it with weapons. Along with the Amal movement, Hezbollah is the main political party and military organization representing the Shia community, Lebanon’s largest religious bloc. Founded with the aid of Iran and funded by it, Hezbollah follows the distinct Shia Islamic ideology developed by Aytatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, leader of the Islamic Revolution in Iran.

“Hezbollah is regarded by many inside the Arab and Muslim worlds, such as the Iranian and Syrian governments, as a legitimate resistance movement and is a recognized political party in Lebanon, where it has participated in government. The civilian wing participates in the Parliament of Lebanon, taking 18% of the seats (23 out of 128) and the bloc it forms with others, the “Resistance and Development Bloc”, 27.3%. It is a minority partner in the current Cabinet. The civilian wing also runs hospitals, news services, and educational facilities. Its Reconstruction Campaign is responsible for numerous economic and infra structural development projects in Lebanon.

The South Lebanon Period (1990 – 2000)

“The continued existence of Hezbollah’s military wing after 1990 violates the Taif Agreement that ended the Lebanese civil war, which requires the “disbanding of all Lebanese and non-Lebanese militias” and requires the government to “deploy the Lebanese army in the border area adjacent to Israel.” The Lebanese government did not try to disarm the Hezbollah during the 1990-2000 period, justifying its position by the fact that Hezbollah was a legitimate national resistance force, fighting for the liberation of the south, then occupied by Israel.

Conflict in South Lebanon: “South Lebanon was occupied by Israel between 1982 and 2000. Hezbollah, along with the mainly leftist and secular groups in the Lebanese National Resistance Front, fought a guerilla war against Israel and the Israeli proxy South Lebanon Army. The National Resistance Front militias disarmed in accordance with the Taif Accords, but Hezbollah remained defiant, claiming until all Lebanese soil was liberated and Israel expelled, resistance against occupation would continue. They had become by far the largest and most powerful and effective of the resistance organizations. The fighting culminated during Operation Grapes of Wrath in April 1996 when Israel launched an assault and air-campaign against Hezbollah. The campaign failed and resulted in the Israelis killing more than 150 civilians and refugees in an aerial bombardment of a United Nations base at Qana

“On September 2, 2004, the UN Security Council adopted UN Security Council Resolution 1559, coauthored by France and the United States. Echoing the Taif Agreement, the resolution “calls upon all remaining foreign forces to withdraw from Lebanon” and “for the disbanding and disarmament of all Lebanese and non-Lebanese militias.” Lebanon is currently in violation of Resolution 1559 over its refusal to disband the military wing of Hezbollah. Critics of the resolution argue however that an attempt from the weak and confessionally divided Lebanese army to disarm Hezbollah would be very difficult and could restart the Lebanese civil war. Syria was also in violation of the resolution until recently because of their military presence in Lebanon. On October 7, 2004 the UN Secretary General Kofi Annan reported to the Security Council regarding the lack of compliance with Resolution 1559. Mr. Annan concluded his report by saying: “It is time, 14 years after the end of hostilities and four years after the Israeli withdrawal from Lebanon, for all parties concerned to set aside the remaining vestiges of the past. The withdrawal of foreign forces and the disbandment and disarmament of militias would, with finality, end that sad chapter of Lebanese history.” The January 20, 2005 UN Secretary-General’s report on Lebanon stated that “The continually asserted position of the Government of Lebanon that the Blue line is not valid in the Sha’a farms area is not compatible with Security Council resolutions. The Council has recognized the Blue Line as valid for purposes of confirming Israel’s withdrawal pursuant to resolution 425 (1978). The UN Security Council has repeatedly requested that all parties respect the Blue Line in its entirety.

“On January 28, 2005 UN Security Council Resolution 1583 called upon the Government of Lebanon to fully extend and exercise its sole and effective authority throughout the south, including through the deployment of sufficient numbers of Lebanese armed and security forces, to ensure a calm environment throughout the area, including along the Blue Line, and to exert control over the use of force on its territory and from it. On January 23, 2006 the UN Security Council called on the Government of Lebanon to make more progress in controlling its territory and disbanding militias, while also calling on Syria to cooperate with those efforts. In a statement read out by its January President Mahiga of Tanzania, the Council also called on Syria to take measures to stop movements of arms and personnel into Lebanon.”

“Hezobollah’s ideology is based in the Shi’a tradition of Islam, specifically in the concept of “Willayat al Faqih” put forth by Ayatollah Khomeini and other Islamic scholars in Iran. Hezbollah seeks to set up an Islamic government in Lebanon modeled after the one in Iran. The following excerpt is taken from the group’s political platform, first published in 1985: “The solution to Lebanon’s problems is the establishment of an Islamic republic as only this type of regime can secure justice and equality for all of Lebanon’s citizens.” The Hizballah organization views as an important goal the fight against `western imperialism’ and its eradication from Lebanon. The group strives for complete U.S. and French withdrawal from Lebanon, including all their institutions.

“The conflict with Israel is viewed as a central concern. This is not only limited to the IDF presence in Lebanon. Rather, the complete destruction of the State of Israel and the establishment of Islamic rule over Jerusalem is an expressed goal.” {Taken From: the Wikipedia, Free Encyclopedia, pp. 1, 3, 4, 6, 8, 9}.

“Syria: Even before this latest outbreak, Syria was under a cloud of suspicion in Lebanon for its suspected involvement in the assassination of Lebanon’s previous prime minister, Rafik Harri, in February 2005.

President Bush has blamed Syria for its support of Hezbollah. `Syria is trying to get back into Lebanon, it looks like to me,’ he said. Damascus denies Bush’s charge and says it wields no control over Hezbollah.

`Whether they like it or not, Hezbollah is an independent, autonomous organization,’ says Imad Moustapha, Syria’s ambassador in Washington. There is some truth to this. While Damascus was a key Hezbollah patron when Syria had troops in Lebanon, it is now more of a patron and facilitator, Syria still has some sway over the group, however, and could influence Hezbollah and its chief backer, Iran. Already, Syria appears to be trying to set itself up as a peacemaker, calling for a cease-fire. Hezbollah is unlikely to agree to such a move without pressure from its sponsors. But some experts warn against enlisting Syria’s help because it could reverse the gains Lebanon made after Syria removed its troops from the country last year, after nearly three decades. `To go to Damascus now would be to betray the Lebanese people,’ says Martin Indyk, a former U.S. ambassador to Israel who is now at the Saban Center for Middle East Policy. `They would in effect have our invitation to meddle in Lebanese politics, with the rationale that they are doing our bidding in dealing with Hezbollah.

“Arab Gulf States: Perhaps the most surprising reaction to the fighting has been from several key Sunni Arab regimes. In a remarkable first in Arab politics, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and Jordan have been openly critical of other arabs engaged in active conflict with Israel. `We see what happened in Lebanon as an adventure and we’re afraid that everybody is going to pay the price,’s says a senior Egyptian diplomat. These Arab regimes are still blasting Israel, but their tough words for Hezbollah suggest a new level of concern about its motives, and particularly its backers in Tehran. Still, it’s not clear how long these governments can maintain their criticism of Hezbollah. The group remains popular on the Arab street and might only gain deeper support if the conflict drags on.

“Israel: The kidnaping of its soldiers was a useful pretext for launching an operation that military leaders had been eager to pursue for several years. Not only was Hezbollah building up its stocks of rockets, but Israelis are also worried by a growing perception in the Arab world that its withdrawal from southern Lebanon and the Gaza Strip was a sign of weakness. Israeli military brass admit privately that they cannot hope to completely destroy Hezbollah, a goal they were unable to achieve during an 18-year occupation of southern Lebanon. Instead, the Army is working fast to try to eliminate as many rocket launchers as it can before a potential cease-fire. Before it’s over, Israel aims to weaken the militant group by imposing a no man’s land half a mile deep into Lebanon. Instead of occupying the land, Israel will send in bulldozers to `flatten the area and remove any sign of a Hezbollah outpost and even trees so that Hezbollah can’t enter again,’ says an Israeli military official. One other option: carve out a deeper buffer zone with a ground invasion.

“Palestinians: Even after Israel opened up a second front against Hezbollah, it continued its three week-old assault on the Palestinian militant group Hamas. This also began with a kidnaping of an Israeli soldier, but it has become very much the forgotten front of this war. In fact, Israel’s Army has been moving in and out of the Gaza Strip and even opened up another front on the West Bank last week, Israeli soldiers raided a Gaza refugee camp for two straight days last week, while besieging a Palestinian security post in the West Bank suspected of being used by Hamas militants. Ironically, Hezbollah, which claims to have acted in sympathy with the Palestinians, has succeeded mostly in overshadowing them completely, leaving Israel with a relatively free hand to move against Hamas. More than 100 Palestinians have been killed so far. `No one is noticing what is happening to us,’ complains a Palestinian legislator. `Everyone has forgotten about us.’


“An Impulse For Intrigue: A coup d’etat, and then a pro-American shah, Revolution, and chants of `Death to America.’ Blindfolded hostages held for an agonizing 444 days. A symbolic offering of a Bible, pistols, and a cake-come to naught. And, always, the bearded, be robed mullahs thundering against the `Great Satan.’ The scenes are seared into America’s collective memory, snapshots from what is perhaps its most irrepressibly maligned foreign relationship. That, of course, would be the one with Iran. New images came flooding in last week, as Hezbollah guerrillas rained rockets down on Israel, drawing a fierce Israeli bombardment in reply. They added a new dimension to the old picture, one of an Iran with the power and the will to wreak havoc far from its borders. U.S. officials and many analysts see an Iranian hand at work in Hezbollah’s new fractiousness. Exactly how much is a point of debate, but not in the White House or in Washington’s other power centers. `Part of those terrorist attacks,’ President Bush suggested last week, `are inspired by nation states, like Syria and Iran.’ Iranian officials deny involvement in the Hezbollah raid that resulted in the abduction of two Israeli soldiers, but they’re also happy stirring the pot, with Iran’s parliamentary chief warning ominously that `no part of Israel will be safe.’ Whatever the precise facts of Iran’s role in this latest crisis – at a minimum, both arming and financing Hezbollah its rapid escalation is a sign that the Middle East has changed. And not simply because Lebanon has yet again been plunged into tumult. Iran is emerging as a true regional powerhouse, more ready than ever to flex its muscles. `Iran’ says Fawaz Gerges, a leading Mideast scholar at Sarah Lawrence College in New York, `really is making a bid for regional supremacy.’ Gerges was not a distant observer of the phenomenon last week; he was living it, temporarily trapped at his parents’ home in Beirut with his three children as Israeli war planes pressed the attack on Hezbollah.

“Pivotal: The spasm of violence reinforced the Bush administration’s conclusion that Iran is playing a pivotal role in the issues that will make or break the Middle East: nuclear weapons, terrorism, the stability of Iraq, democracy, and Israel’s security. `They are all interrelated,’ says a senior administration official. `The nexus of it is the regime in Tehran.’ The sources of Iran’s new strength, paradoxically, include Bush administration policy. By toppling Iran’s next door enemies – Iraq’s Saddam Hussein and Afghanistan’s Taliban -the administration unintentionally upgraded Iran’s strategic punch. After American troops rolled into Baghdad, Iranian officials feared partial encirclement by U.S. forces. They had Swiss intermediaries pass on a feeler proposing comprehensive talks on Iraq, terrorism, and nukes. The overture was rebuffed by an administration riding high at the time. But as a murderous insurgency threatened Iraq’s U.S. sponsored government and unexpectedly bogged down American forces-Tehran’s fear receded. Iran grew confident that Bush could not intervene in yet another country. Iranian support for anti U.S. Shiite militias in Iraq, including money and weapons, and a campaign to gain sway with fellow Shiites there soon unfolded.

“Soaring oil prices – rising in part because of tensions with Iran – have also given Tehran a new swagger. The West’s brinkmanship over its nuclear program and now fears of a regional war sparked by the conflict in Lebanon, may be responsible for hiking Tehran’s monthly oil revenues by as much as $1.4 billion over just a year ago. Iran has also funneled cash and arms to Hamas, which won Palestinian elections this year and has been battling Israeli troops in Gaza. Last month, Hamas militants kidnaped an Israeli in a foray eerily similar to Hezbollah’s raid in the north. U.S. officials consider Hezbollah and Hamas terrorist groups and Iran the world’s No. 1 state. The alleged Iranian connection to the Hezbollah raid is also seen as part of an ominous signaling game directed at Israel and the United States: Attack our nuclear facilities, and you’ll reap an array of punishing reprisals. This is known, in the argot of the military, as asymmetrical warfare countering a stronger adversary by terrorism, oil embargoes, and other unconventional tactics.” {Excerpts taken from: US News, July 31, 2006, pp. 30, 31, 34 – 37}.

“HAMAS: Hamas regards the territory of the present-day State of Israel – as well as the Gaza Strip and the West Bank – as an inalienable Islamic or religious bequest, which can never be surrendered to non-Muslims. It asserts that struggle to regain control of the land from Israel is the religious duty of every Muslim. This position is more radical than that now held by the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) which in 1988 recognized Israel’s sovereignty. Hamas does not recognize Israel as a sovereign state and refers to it as the `Zionist entity.’ a common hostile term in Arab political rhetoric and calls for an end to the state of Israel in its charter. During the election campaign, Hamas did not mention its call for the destruction of Israel in its electoral manifesto. However several Hamas candidates insist that the charter is still in force and often called for Israel to be `wiped off the map’ in campaign speeches. On January 25th, 2006, after winning the Palestinian elections, Hamas leader Mahmoud al-Zahar gave an interview to Al-Manar TV denouncing foreign demands that Hamas recognize Israel’s right to exist. After the establishment of Hamas government, Dr. Al-Zahar stated his `dreams of hanging a huge map of the world on the wall at my Gaza home which does not show Israel on it..I hope that our dream to have our independent state an all- historic Palestine (including Israel). This dream will become real one day. I’m certain of this because there is no place for the state of Israel on this land.’ He also `didn’t rule out the possibility of having Jews, Muslims and Christians living under the sovereignty of an Islamic state, adding that the Palestinians never hated the Jews and that only the Israeli occupation was their enemy.

“`After Palestine, the Zionists aspire to expand from the Nile to the Euphrates. When they will have digested the region they overtook, they will aspire to further expansion, and so on. Their plan is embodied The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, and their present conduct is the best proof of what we are saying.’ Suicide attacks are an element of what the group sees as its asymmetric warfare against Israel. Since the group considers all Israel to be a `militarized society’ (there is mandatory military service for most Jewish men and women) and Israelis to be participants in an illegal occupation of Palestinian land. Hamas does not distinguish between civilian and military targets. The fact that this group does not distinguish between combatants and non-combatants and the group’s willingness to target civilian facilities including buses, supermarkets, and restaurants is one of the main traits which supports its classification as a terrorist movement (although Hamas claims being a national liberation movement).

“While Hamas had boycotted the January 2005 presidential election, during which Mahmoud Abbas was elected to replace Yasser Arafat, it did participate in the municipal elections held between January and May 2005, in which it took control of Beit Lahia in Gaza, Qalqilyah in the West Bank and Rafah. The January 2006 legislative elections marked another victory for Hamas, which gained the majority of seats, defeating the ruling Fatah party. The `List of Change and Reform’, as Hamas presented itself, obtained 42.9% of the vote and 74 of the 132 seats. The result of the election was regarded as a major setback for governments attempting to mediate the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The George W. Bush administration immediately declared that it will not deal with Hamas until it renounces its support of suicide bombings and violence, and accepts Israel’s right to exist. Israeli president Moshe Katsav and Israel’s ex-prime minister Shimon Peres both said that, if Hamas will accept Israel’s right to exist and give up violence, Israel should negotiate with the organization. President Vladimir Putin said that Russia would not support any efforts to cut off financial assistance to the Palestinians, stating that Hamas gained power by democratic means. He invited some Hamas leaders to Moscow beginning of March 2006, and in May, repeated that cutting funds to the Hamas was a `mistake.’

“The US and the EU cut all funds to the Palestinian Authority, with only Russia warning against the potential dangers of cutting out the PA from any Occidental support. The EU (which gives $500 million per year to the PA) announced that future aid to the Palestinians was tied to `Three Principles’ outlined by the international community – Hamas must renounce violence, it must recognize Israel’s right to exist and it must express clear support for the Middle East peace process, as outlined in the 1993 Oslo Accords.

Hamas does not seem to be ready to accept such conditions and rejected them as `unfair.’ At best, they would be ready to accept the Arab Peace Initiative formulated on March 28, 2002 during the Arab League Beirut Summit: full normalization of relations with Israel in exchange for Israeli withdrawal to the 1967 internationally recognized borders, implying Israeli evacuation of the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, east Jerusalem, the Golan Heights and the return of all Palestinian refugees and their descendants.

Furthermore, the US has imposed a financial blockade on the PA’s banks, impeding some of the Arab League’s funds (e.g. Saudi Arabia and Qatar) from being transferred to the PA.

“Israel, on the other side decided to cut transfers of the $55 million tax-receipts of the PA that it receives on the PA’s behalf, since the PA doesn’t have any access point to receive taxes. Although Hamas omitted its call for the destruction of Israel from its election manifesto, calling instead for `the establishment of an independent state whose capital is Jerusalem,’ several Hamas candidates insisted that the charter remains in force.” {Excerpts taken From, Wikipedia, Free Encyclopedia, pp. 4, 6, 7, 18 – 20}.

What Does Prophecy Have To Say About The Current World Crisis?

“We are standing on the threshold of great and solemn events. Many of the prophecies are about to be fulfilled in quick succession. Every element of power is about to be set to work. Past history will be repeated; old controversies will arouse to new life, and peril will beset God’s people on every side. Intensity is taking hold of the human family. It is permeating everything upon the earth.’ {Testimonies to Ministers, p. 6}.

We as SDAs always have our minds focused on the Vatican as if that is where the next crisis should be coming from. That is, the rise of the Papacy–“The Mark of the Beast”, “The Sunday Law”, The “666″.

Although for decades, strides have been stealthily made in those directions, yet nothing dramatic has really materialized. Instead, there has been a continual upheaval in the MidEast, constant tension between Jews and Arabs as to who should occupy and control the Holy Land. The USA’s involvement in her allying with Israel has incurred the wrath of the Muslim world. And she being the world’s super power and world police, makes her the target of the enemies of Israel.

History proves that great nations such as ancient Babylon, and Rome were brought to their knees when they were best armed, and most independent of God. They were brought down in the most humiliating way by cruel and heartless Barbarians. The USA has been humiliated on September 11, 2001. Her symbol of wealth, the World Trade Center, (WTC) and its military might (The Pentagon) has been damaged. This has sent a shock wave of depression world wide. In one week the Wall Street lost over one trillion dollars as a result of the crushing of the WTC. Fear has paralyzed the civilized world while the Barbarians are rejoicing in triumph. With the war in Afghanistan, then in Iraq and with Israel fighting Hezbollah and Hamas, on two fronts, many are concluding that these wars are of Biblical proportion . Take heed, the end is not yet come, this is only the beginning of sorrows.

Mark 13:7, 8— “And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginning of sorrows.”

We are very familiar with the term “the fall of Babylon” referring to the Papacy and her allied churches. This you will find fully explained in the book, “The Great Controversy,” pages 375-390. But as those pages make clear, Babylon will not be completely fallen until the church and state unite in the time of the Loud Cry just prior to the falling of the seven last plagues.


The War centered in the Mideast is not just another rumor of war, this is a prophetic war that is to bring the anger of the nations and the culmination of the international one world religio-political commercial empire of the ages symbolized by the woman Babylon of Revelation 17 and 18, and instigated by the Two Horned Beast – the USA. Before the rise of ancient Babylon there was an empire calledAssyriawith its capital city, Nineveh along the River Tigres in Iran.

“The pride of Assyria and its fall are to serve as an object lesson to the end of time… The pride of Assyria shall be brought down, and the scepter of Egypt shall depart away.” Zechariah 10:11. This is true not only of the nations that arrayed themselves against God in ancient times, but also of nations today who fail of fulfilling the divine purpose.” {Prophets & Kings, p.366}

Assyria collapsed before the rise of ancient Babylon. Likewise, before the rise of antitypical Babylon of Revelation chapters 17 and 18 (the Image of the Beast), {See Isaiah 14:24, 25; 30:30, 31; 31:5-9}, there will be anantitypical Assyria that will fall. As you meditate on these unfamiliar Scriptures you will see that antitypical Assyria, the mighty USA/England and their allies are to be brought low by God’s intervention and not by the hand of some mighty nation. God allows all of this in an endeavor to save the God-fearing citizens. Like Nebuchadnezzar, they will be led to acknowledge God as the Creator and Redeemer.Now let us get our Bibles and follow as we dig deep into the mine of truth, as we make several connections in the book of Nahum


Nahum predicts a war that involves antitypical Assyria (Nineveh was the capital of Assyria), and a barbarian that shall arise referred to prophetically as “he that dasheth in pieces”. (See Nahum 2:1-4). Although this prophecy was made a long time ago during the reign of king Hezekiah; what is most interesting is the time in which this prophecy will be fulfilled.Let us observe Nahum 1:13, 15:

Nahum 1:13, 15: “For now will I break his yoke from off thee, and will burst thy bonds in sunder. Behold upon the mountains the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace! O Judah, keep thy solemn feasts, perform thy vows: for the wicked shall no more pass through thee; he is utterly cut off.”

Let us now compareverse 15withIsaiah 52:1.

Isaiah 52:1“Awake, awake; put on thy strength, O Zion; put on thy beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city: for henceforth there shall no more come into thee the uncircumcised and the unclean.” .

Clearly, this prophecy of Nahum is pointing to the time of the end at the purification of God’s church when there will be no tares therein.

Let us continue:

Nahum 2:3, 4— “The shield of his mighty men is made red, the valiant men are in scarlet: thechariots shall be with flaming torchesin the day of his preparation, and the fir trees shall be terribly shaken.The chariots shall rage in the streets,they shall justle one against another in the broad ways: they shall seem like torches, they shall run like the lightnings.”

Since this prophecy meets its fulfillment in the day when the chariots are with “flaming torches“; when theyrun like lightning; when theyjostle one against another in the highwaysand in thebroadways, and since the automotive traffic of today completely and perfectly answers the prophet’s description of it, then there is no other conclusion but that the day in which we are now living is the day in which Nahum’s prophecy is to be fulfilled.

Now, in view of the truth that we are living in such a period as described by Nahum, together with the fact that preparations for Nahum’s war are made during a time of such lightning-like travel, the evidence clearly stands out that Nahum’s prophecy is to meet its fulfillment in our day, and that the “Assyria” here in prophecy, therefore, is not ancient Assyria, but another widespread power that exists “in the time of the end” (Dan. 12:9, 10) the time in which its yoke is removed from God’s people.

Nahum 2:1— “He that dasheth in pieces is come up before thy face: keep the munition, watch the way, make thy loins strong, fortify thy power mightily.”

It is plain to see that the one who dashes in pieces, and who comes before Assyria’s face is the one who forces Assyria to prepare, to militarize herself mightily. Her forced military preparations, agitated by him that dashes in pieces, starts Assyria on her downfall.

Now, to find out what happens to the one who dashes in pieces — he who compels Assyria to prepare mightily, we shall read–

Nahum 2:5— “He shall recount his worthies: they shall stumble in their walk; they shall make haste to the wall thereof, and the defence shall be prepared.”

His worthies (his mighty generals) stumble in their walk; that is, they make a mistake as they march on in hope of victory. In view of their disastrous blunder, and in view of the fact that “he that dasheth in pieces” is mentioned no more in Nahum’s book, it is evident that by his stumbling he loses the war. Nevertheless, according to the verses that follow in Nahum’s chapters, the fall of Assyria is certain.

Moreover, since this antitypical Assyria’s fall liberates God’s people, and since from then on the wicked no longer pass through their midst, the time and the events are solidly clinched: All these predictions come to pass in the time of the purification of the church, in the Judgment day of the living, during the great and dreadful day of the Lord.”


Isaiah 14:24, 25.“The LORD of hosts hath sworn, saying, Surely as I have thought, so shall it come to pass; and as I have purposed, [so] shall it stand: That I will break the Assyrian in my land, and upon my mountains tread him under foot: then shall his yoke depart from off them, and his burden depart from off their shoulders.”

Isaiah 30:30, 31— “And the Lord shall cause his glorious voice to be heard, and shall shew the lighting down of his arm, with the indignation of his anger, and with the flame of a devouring fire, with scattering, and tempest, and hailstones. For through the voice of the Lord shall theAssyrian be beaten down,which smote with a rod.”

Isaiah 31:4-9— “For thus hath the LORD spoken unto me, Like as the lion and the young lion roaring on his prey, when a multitude of shepherds is called forth against him, [he] will not be afraid of their voice, nor abase himself for the noise of them: so shall the LORD of hosts come down to fight for mount Zion, and for the hill thereof. As birds flying, so will the LORD of hosts defend Jerusalem; defending also he will deliver [it; and] passing over he will preserve it. Turn ye unto [him from] whom the children of Israel have deeply revolted. For in that day every man shall cast away his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which your own hands have made unto you [for] a sin. Then shall the Assyrian fall with the sword, not of a mighty man; and the sword, not of a mean man, shall devour him: but he shall flee from the sword, and his young men shall be discomfited. And he shall pass over to his strong hold for fear, and his princes shall be afraid of the ensign, saith the LORD, whose fire [is] in Zion, and his furnace in Jerusalem.”

Nahum makes clear that in this conflict God interposes against Assyria, and that as a result she is unable to withstand him who “dasheth in pieces.” Having set Himself to humble her, He therefore strengthens the arms of her enemy. Accordingly, Assyria falls, not because she is weak and small nor because she is out-numbered and out-matched, but because God’s purpose determines her downfall. In other words, the coalition which may have the greater resources and man-power, and which from the human point of view may seem sure to win, is in this case sure to lose out finally.

Their safety, however, does not depend on fear and armament, nor on the man we elect for president, but on God, on Him Who holds the earth in space, and Who still rules the affairs of mankind. From the dawn of history till today the great nations that have fallen, fell when they were best armed and most independent of God. This should be a great lesson to all, but who realizes it?

Such is the ironic pattern of history. Always has God visited judgment upon enlightened nations or peoples who have become so self-righteous and self-sufficient that their lights have gone out and their works become wicked and hypocritical. Ever has He punished them by the sword of the unenlightened andoutright wicked barbarian. This He does for two reasons: first, that they might see the folly of professing themselves to be a righteous people, when they are in fact worse than barbarians; and second, that while these hypocritical ones are thereby led to repent, their conquerors may thereby be led to see that their victory is not of their own strength. Thus both victor and vanquished are brought to a place where they may surrender to God and give glory to Him.

Having now been made aware of these prophecies, it is for us to observe the developments of the present war of America and her allies against the terrorists, which, if not now, will sooner or later evolve into a bloody World War in the Holy Land with Israel at the Epicenter.

It must also be noted that the fall of Assyria is dependent upon a mighty revival and reformation among God’s people, and their casting away their idols of silver and gold.

The Greatest Of All Wars Is To Be Fought About The Holy Land.

Zechariah 1:18, 19— “Then lifted I up mine eyes and saw, and behold four horns. And I said unto the angel that talked with me, What be these? And he answered me, These are the horns which have scattered Judah, Israel, and Jerusalem.”

The prophet saw four horns, and the angel that talked with him made him to understand that these horns were symbolical of the Gentile nations which had scattered Judah (the two-tribe kingdom), and Israel (the ten-tribe kingdom), and also Jerusalem (the capital city of the two-tribe kingdom — Judah). In other words, in the symbol of the four horns, Zechariah saw those Gentile nations which scattered God’s ancient people and destroyed their kingdom.

Zechariah 1:20, 21— “And the Lord shewed me four carpenters. Then said I, What come these to do? And he spake, saying These are the horns which have scattered Judah, so that no man did lift up his head: but these are come to fray them, to cast out the horns of the Gentiles, which lifted up their horn over the land of Judah to scatter it.

The prophet first saw four horns which perfectly symbolize those Gentile nations which scattered God’s people, for horns are used to push and scatter. Afterwards though, he saw four carpenters, thus lending the impression that they have come to build; for that is the business of carpenters. When the prophet saw the carpenters he wanted to know the purpose of their presence. In his answer, the angel first told him that these carpenters are none other than the four horns (Gentile nations) which had scattered Israel, Judah, and Jerusalem. And these same horns that scattered Judah, Israel, and Jerusalem have now returned as carpenters to cast out the Gentiles and thus free God’s people. It therefore becomes obvious that the four horns which Zechariah first saw point back to the time when Israel and Judah were scattered, and the symbolism of the four carpenters must point forward, to a time years later when God is to restore and rebuild Jerusalem. Briefly, then the symbolism of the horns looks back to the destruction of the kingdom, whereas the other, the carpenters, looks forward to the repairing of it.

The question we ought next to consider is whether the fulfillment of the work of the carpenters took place in the time when the Jews returned from Babylon after their 70 years captivity, or whether it refers to some other time; for you remember that the Jews were scattered, and their land was taken, and they went into captivity under Babylon for the 70 years of Jeremiah’s prophecy, after which they returned and the city was rebuilt.

Zechariah says there were four horns which would include all the nations that had a part in scattering God’s ancient people out of the Holy Land. And, moreover, if this prediction met its fulfillment in Nehemiah and Haggai’s time, all the Gentiles should have been driven out forever. But they were not. Besides, the horns were those nations that scattered Judah, Israel and Jerusalem, and now they have returned to free them and repair the kingdom, and in chapter two of Zechariah’s prophecy, God declared that not only would His people’s kingdom be restored, but many nations would join themselves to the Lord. Since both Israel and Judah did not return, and since other nations did not join themselves to the Lord and His people when the Jews returned from Babylon, we cannot say that this prophecy met its fulfillment in the return of the Jews from Babylon. And since this prophecy has never been fulfilled, it must take place at some future time.

The things that we listen to on the News Media in these days, show that the prophecies are soon to be completely fulfilled.

Through it all we see in Zechariah’s prophecy a prediction that one day Gentile nations would be engaged in rebuilding the Israelitish kingdom in Palestine that was once destroyed. We see also that there is to be a world war in which Gentiles outside of Palestine and the Gentiles within will be involved. In that war God’s people, Judah, Israel, and Jerusalem, are to be delivered and made free and the kingdom will be rebuilt. That is as plain as anything I have ever seen.

In Luke 21:24 we find these words: “And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.” It is at the time Zechariah’s prophecy is fulfilled — when the four carpenters drive out the Gentiles — that Jerusalem shall no more be trodden by the Gentiles, for their time to occupy the Holy Land shall be brought to its end.

NOTE: Be reminded that the present-day unbelieving Jews in Palestine in God’s sight are like Gentiles and are not the ones that shall finally possess the Promised Land and live peacefully.

What prophecy are the Jews fulfilling in their returning to Palestine since 1948? Let us hear from Zephaniah on this point.

Zephaniah 2:1, 2— “Gather yourselves together, yea, gather together, O nation not desired; before the decree bring forth, before the day pass as the chaff, before the fierce anger of the Lord come upon you, before the day of the Lord’s anger come upon you.

Let us note that the nation in question is to gather itself together suggesting that it was scattered. She is not desired; the anger of the Lord is to fall upon her; and that she is to gather herself together before the decree brings forth and before the anger of the Lord falls upon her.

What makes this nation gather together? — Certainly not the decree and not the Lord’s anger, for these are to come upon her after she gathers together. The “decree” certainly cannot be the two horn beast’s decree, for there is not even a thought in the scripture that would so indicate; but it certainly points out that the decree is none other than the Lord’s decree — the fierce anger of the Lord in the day that passes as chaff.

According to the verse that follows, this undesirable nation’s gathering together, is a sign post to God’s people, urging them to continue seeking Him so much the more:

Zephaniah 2:3— “Seek ye the Lord, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought His judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the Lord’s anger.”

When this Judgment-bound nation begins to gather together then it is, if never before, that the meek of the earth need to seek meekness.

The meek of the earth are those who have wrought the Lord’s judgments, who have proclaimed the message of the great and dreadful day of the Lord. They are His people, His church. The nation that is not desired, therefore, is one people, and the meek of the earth, the church, those who are hid in the day of the Lord’s anger are another people. The one is gathering together, the other is seeking meekness. Definitely, then, the “nation” of verses 1 and 2 is not His church, but the people of verse three are His people, His church.

Let us now read verses 1 and 2 connectively with verses 4 and 5, omitting verse 3, the verse which has reference to the church.

Zephaniah 2:1, 2, 4, 5–“Gather yourselves together, yea, gather together, O nation not desired; before the decree bring forth, before the day pass as the chaff, before the fierce anger of the Lord come upon you…. ForGazashall be forsaken, andAshkelona desolation: they shall drive outAshdodat the noon day, andEkronshall be rooted up. Woe unto the inhabitants of the sea coast, the nation of the Cherethites! the Word of the Lord is against you; O Canaan, the land of the Philistines, I will even destroy thee, that there shall be no inhabitant.

The fourth verse definitely implies that the “nation” is to gather together in the cities of Gaza, Ashkelon, Ashdod, and Ekron, in the land of the Philistines, in the land of Canaan — in Palestine.

In view of the fact that this Scripture is now being unfolded, and also the fact that there is but one people, one nation (the descendants of the ancient scribes, priests, and Pharisees who rejected the Lord and who have not even to this day accepted Him, that are hardly desired anywhere in the world) that is now doing all she can to gather together in Palestine — in view of all this, the present-day Jews are that undesired nation. Upon her, therefore, the Lord’s anger is to fall if she continues to deny Christ. Yes, the universally hated Jew is the only nation that has been scattered throughout the Gentile world, and is the only one that is now gathering together in Palestine.

“At the time when Jerusalem was destroyed and the temple in ruins, many thousands of the Jews were sold to serve as bondmen in heathen lands. Like wrecks on a desert shore, they were scattered among the nations. For eighteen hundred years the Jews have wandered from land to land throughout the world, and in no place have they been given the privilege of regaining their ancient prestige as a nation. Maligned, hated, persecuted, from century to century theirs has been a heritage of suffering.”{Gospel Workers, p. 397}.

Matthew 27:20, 23-25— “But the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitude that they should ask Barabbas, and destroy Jesus. And the governor said, Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out the more, saying, Let him be crucified. When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it. Then answered all the people, and said,His blood be on us, and on our children.”

Moreover, in these verses, two truths stand out clearly: (1) that in vain the Jews seek to establish themselves in the Promised Land; (2) that we who are bearing the message of the great and dreadful day of the Lord are counseled to seek meekness and righteousness, for thus only shall we “be hid in the day of the Lord’s anger,” that is, merely to bear knowledge of the message will not save us, there should be corresponding deeds with it.

Let us now connect verse 3 with verses 6 and 7, the verses that are applicable to the people of God, the meek.

Zephaniah 2:3, 6, 7— “Seek ye the Lord, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought His judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the Lord’s anger…. And the sea coast shall be dwellings and cottages for shepherds, and folds for flocks. And the coast shall be for the remnant of the house of Judah; they shall feed thereupon: in the houses of Ashkelon shall they lie down in the evening: for the Lord their God shall visit them, and turn away their captivity.”

Now, the fact that the Lord is to destroy all the inhabitants in theland of the Philistines(Zeph. 2:5), and at the same time make it dwellings for “shepherds, and folds for flocks,” shows that He is first to drive out of the land all the wicked, all those who are not seeking meekness, then He is to set up the “house of Judah” in it.


Let us now go to Zechariah chapter 14 for further light on this conflict in the Promised Land.

Zechariah 14:1-3.Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city. Then shall the Lord go forth and fight against those nations as when he fought in the day of battle.”

Here is brought to view a war in Jerusalem in which all nations will be involved. In this war Jerusalem is defeated and ravished. We notice too, that a faithful remnant will be spared. Verse 3 then states that after the apparent victory of the nations that fought against Jerusalem, the Lord Himself will fight against those nations.

The following verses explain how God will miraculously fight against these apparent victorious nations.

Zechariah 14:12, 13— “And this shall be the plague wherewith the Lord will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Theirfleshshall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and theireyesshall consume away in their holes, and theirtongueshall consume away in their mouth. And it shall come to pass in that day, that a great tumult from the Lord shall be among them; and they shall lay hold every one on the hand of his neighbor, and his hand shall rise up against the hand of his neighbour.”

We see here that a flesh consuming plague from the Lord will fall upon these warring factions in the Holy Land and to compound this calamity a tumult or confusion from the Lord shall be among them and they shall slay their own men. According to Judges 7, a similar incident took place when Gideon and his three hundred men attacked the Midianites with their pitchers and trumpets. A tumult or confusion from the Lord came upon them and they slew themselves. Speaking of this defeat of the state of Israel Isaiah describes it as follows:

Isaiah 14:31— “Howl, O gate; cry, O city; thou whole Palestina, art dissolved: for there shall come from the north a smoke, and none shall be alone in his appointed times.”

Palestina is to be completely dissolved. Through our study of the Bible we have come to expect the heathen to be dissolved out of Palestina in the Assyrian period. “Whole Palestina art dissolved: for there shall come from the north a smoke.” Smoke does not creep along the surface of the ground, but travels through the air, and as the smoke comes from the north, the phrase suggests that aerial attack will be waged against her from the north and pass on to the south. It will mean that those who now possess Palestina will lose out. The last phrase, “and none shall be alone in his appointed times,” means that they will not be alone, for others will be with it “in his appointed times.”

The raining of Hezbollah’s rockets on Israel from North to South surely fits this description of Isa. 14:31, but that is just a foretaste of what really is to come later. These spasmodic upheavals in the Mid East is God’s means of drawing the minds of the church and the world to what God is about to do pertaining to the restoration of Israel. The destruction of Jerusalem here described in Zechariah 14, and Isaiah 14 cannot be referring to the destruction by Nebuchadnezzar, nor Titus of Rome in AD 70, because at no time in the past to the present have the inhabitants of Jerusalem ever dwelt safely.After this war, men will dwell peacefully in the Holy Land. Zechariah is here saying that, just prior to the long looked for restoration of Jerusalem there is to be a major World War about the Holy Land and Israel will be defeated. After these belligerent forces have been driven out of the land then the Lord will miraculously restore the land and gather His faithful saints.This planet will then be moved into a new era. Zechariah confirms the following:

Zechariah 14:9-11, 14, 21“And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one. All the land shall be turned as a plain from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem: and it shall be lifted up, and inhabited in her place, from Benjamin’s gate unto the place of the first gate, unto the corner gate, and [from] the tower of Hananeel unto the king’s winepresses.And [men] shall dwell in it, and there shall be no more utter destruction; but Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited….And Judah also shall fight at Jerusalem; and the wealth of all the heathen round about shall be gathered together, gold, and silver, and apparel, in great abundance… Yea, every pot in Jerusalem and in Judah shall be holiness unto the LORD of hosts: and all they that sacrifice shall come and take of them, and seethe therein: and in that day there shall be no more the Canaanite in the house of the LORD of hosts.”.

The world’s cry and search for peace in the Middle East between Jews and Arabs at this time, cannot, and will not be found. In fact, the tensions will worsen until it evolves into a World War. A war in which there will be no winner, but God and His remnant people.


Zephaniah 3:13The remnant of Israel shall not do iniquity, nor speak lies; neither shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth: for they shall feed and lie down, and none shall make themafraid.”

At what time will the remnant lie down safely and none shall make them afraid? Let us read Hosea 2: 15 & 18.

Hosea 2:15, 18— “And I will give her her vineyards from thence, andthe valleyofAchor for a door of hope: and she shall sing there, as in the days of her youth, and as in the day when she came up out of the land of Egypt….. And in that day will I make acovenant for them with the beastsof the field, and with the fowls of heaven, and with the creeping things of the ground: and I will break the bow and the sword and the battle out of the earth, and will make them tolie down safely.”

We see here, that after God gives the“Valley of Achor”(Joshua 7:26) as a door of hope for his church, then he makes a covenant of peace with man and beast and allows them to lie down safely. The Valley of Achor is just another way of expressing thePurification of the Church, or, the slaughter of Ezekiel 9. It can be clearly seen that the restoration of Jerusalem takes place after the valley of Achor’s experience.

Jeremiah 23:5-8Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth. In His days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shalldwell safely: and this is His name whereby He shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that they shall no more say, The LORD liveth, which brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt; But, The LORD liveth, which brought up and which led the seed of the house of Israel out of the north country, and from all countries whither I had driven them; and they shall dwell in their own land.

This is one of the texts that was used by the Jews in teaching that when the Messiah comes He would deliver them from Roman bondage enabling them to live in peace. Let us examine the following text of Scripture.

Acts 1:3, 6, 7. — “To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking things pertaining to the kingdom of God:… When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel? And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power.”

We see here that even after the resurrection, the disciples were still not too clear about this issue of the restoration of Jerusalem. When they asked Jesus when will He restore the Kingdom of Israel, Jesus did not tell them that they were misinterpreting the Scriptures. He simply said he would not tell them the times. They did not know that the Jews had to be scattered among the Gentile nations just as the other ten tribes, before they were to be united and become one nation. They did not understand that Jerusalem was to be trodden underfoot for another 2000 years until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled. (Luke 21:24). Now the time has come for the Lord to “…perform the truth to Jacob, and the mercy to Abraham, which thou hast sworn unto our fathers from the days of old.” Micah 7:20. God’s church today, instead of longing for, and praying for the Kingdom are relentlessly opposing it. Day by day even through the upheavals in the Middle East, the Lord is making it known that the time has come for the “Lord’s Prayer,” to be answered. “Our Father, Who art in Heaven,Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in Heaven.”

“God is our Father, who loves and cares for us as His children; He is also the great King of the universe. The interests of His kingdom are our interests, and we are to work for its up-building.” {Mount of Blessing, p. 107}.

“The disciples of Christ were looking for the immediate coming of the kingdom of His glory, but in giving them this prayer Jesus taught that the kingdom was not then to be established. They were to pray for its coming as an event yet future. But this petition was also an assurance to them. While they were not to behold the coming of the kingdom in their day, the fact that Jesus bade them pray for it is evidence that in God’s own time it will surely come.{Mount of Blessing, p. 107}.

What is the time projected here, when this King shall reign and Israel shall dwell safely?

Hosea 3:4, 5For the children of Israel shall abide many days without a king, and without a prince, and without a sacrifice, and without an image, and without an ephod, and without teraphim: Afterward shall the children of Israel return, and seek the Lord their God, and David their king; and shall fear the Lord and his goodness in thelatter days.”.

Note:The time of the reigning of this king when Israel returns to the Holy Land and shall dwell safely is in thelatter days.

Ezekiel 34:13, 25, 28 –“And I will bring them out from the people, and gather them from the countries, and will bring them to their own land, and feed them upon the mountains of Israel by the rivers, and in all the inhabited places of the country. And I will make with thema covenant of peace, and will cause the evil beasts to cease out of the land: and they shall dwell safely in the wilderness, and sleep in the woods. And they shall no more be a prey to the heathen, neither shall the beast of the land devour them; but they shall dwell safely, and none shall make them afraid.”

The unbelieving Jews from all over the world who have been migrating to Israel since 1948 think that they are fulfilling these prophecies, but unfortunately they have never been able to lie down safely and in peace. This promise is for God’s Christian believing saints – Jews and Gentiles still scattered throughout the whole world. Strange it may sound, just keep reading prayerfully, and it will get clearer and clearer. “Prove all things; and hold fast that which is good.” (1Thess. 5:21)


Isaiah 11:1-5.“And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse,” prophesies Isaiah in figurative depiction of this glorious triumph of God’s purpose, “and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: and the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord; and shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the Lord: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears: but with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth: with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked. And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins.”

In this illustration there are three persons brought to view: Jesse (the father of David), the rod (David), and the Branch (Christ). The relationship shows that David (the rod) is not Christ (the Branch) for the “rod” sprang from the stem of Jesse, and the Branch from the rod — a fact which is born out in the cry of the multitude when Christ entered Jerusalem. They shouted: “Hosannah to the son of David.” Matt. 21:15. Plainly, therefore, the “rod,” coming from the stem of Jesse, is symbolical of David; and the Branch, coming from the rod, is symbolical of the son of David — Christ.

So though the “ensign” emblematizes the connection of three persons (Jesse, the root; David the rod; and Christ, the Branch), yet the power and wisdom of Christ is its underlying and controlling force. Wherefore says Christ: “I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star” (Rev. 22:16), bearing out that He is all and in all.

Characterizing both the king and the kingdom to be established after the “many days,” the prophet Isaiah declares: “…with righteousness shall He judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and He shall smite the earth with the rod of His mouth, and with the breath of His lips shall He slay the wicked. And righteousness shall be the girdle of His loins, and faithfulness the girdle of His reins.

The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb and the leopard shall lie down with the kid, and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them. And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox. And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice’ den. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.” Isa. 11 :4-9. This prophesied era of absolute righteousness, peace, and knowledge of God (in the kingdom) under the reign of the “rod” (David) and of the “Branch” (Christ), must beginBefore the Close of Probation.

The Scriptures show that the kingdom is set up before, rather than at, the beginning of the millennium, for “in that day [in the day the kingdom is set up and peace reigns]…a root of Jesse [the rod and the Branch]…shall stand for an ensign of the people [of the kingdom],” says Isaiah, and “to it shall the Gentiles seek.” Isa. 11:10. And as after the close of probation, the doors of the kingdom will be shut to all, the ensign must therefore be set up before probation closes: the only time that the Gentiles will have a chance to be converted to the Lord and to His kingdom, — a conclusion common to the following scriptures:

“Also, O Judah, he hath set an harvest for thee when I returned the captivity of My people.’ Hos. 6:11.”

It is God’s intention to use this re-creation, this peaceful Edenic situation in the Promised Land to be an ensign to the nations who will in turn seek this ensign and find rest therein; [in probationary time].This would defy evolution and bring conviction to the atheists. This then could not apply to the earth made new. If we continue to read the rest of the chapter, it will be seen that the whole chapter is to be fulfilled before the second return of Christ.

Isaiah 11:11-16 “And it shall come to passin that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again thesecondtime to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea. And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel,and gathertogether the dispersed of Judah from thefour corners of the earth. The envy also of Ephraim shall depart, and the adversaries of Judah shall be cut off, Ephraim shall not envy Judah, and Judah shall not vex Ephraim. But they shall fly upon the shoulders of the Philistines toward the west; they shall spoil them of the east together: they shall lay their hand upon Edom and Moab; and the children of Ammon shall obey them.

And the Lord shall utterly destroy the tongue of the Egyptian sea; and with his mighty wind shall he shake his hand over the river, and shall smite it in the seven streams, and make men go over dryshod. And there shall be an highway for the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria;like as it was to Israel in the day that he came up out of the land of Egypt.”

These verses need no explanation they mean just what they say. There is to be a second Exodus of God’s people, not just from Egypt, but from the four corners of the earth. Millions and millions of people will then be brought to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, but not until God manifests His mighty power in the land where the gospel started.

“The language of the Bible should be explained according to its obvious meaning, unless a symbol or figure is employed.”{The Great Controversy, p. 599}.

“Among earth’s inhabitants, scattered in every land, there are those who have not bowed the knee to Baal.Like the stars of heaven, which appear only at night, these faithful ones will shine forth when darkness covers the earth and gross darkness the people. In heathen Africa, in the Catholic lands of Europe and of South America, in China, in India, in the islands of the sea, and in all the dark corners of the earth, God has in reserve a firmament of chosen ones that will yet shine forth amidst the darkness, revealing clearly to an apostate world the transforming power of obedience to His law.”{Prophets and Kings, pp. 188, 189}.

Let us now return to Jer.23: 2-8 and see how abundantly clearer this subject becomes.

Jeremiah 23:3-8 “And I will gather the remnant of my flock out of all countries whither I have driven them, and will bring them again to their folds; and they shall be fruitful and increase. And I will set up shepherds over them which shall feed them: and they shall fear no more, nor be dismayed, neither shall they be lacking, saith the Lord. Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and aKing shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth.In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shalldwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS. Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that they shallno more say, The Lord liveth, which brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt; But, The Lord liveth, which brought up and which led the seed of the house of Israel out of the north country, and from all countries whither I had driven them; and they shall dwell intheir own land.”

Can we now see what is God’s plan for the remnant in these last days? Let us listen to the God of Heaven reiterate this most vital truth.

Jeremiah 16:13-15 “Therefore will I cast you out of this land into a land that ye know not, neither ye nor your fathers; and there shall ye serve other gods day and night; where I will not shew you favour. Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that it shall nomore be said, The Lord liveth, that brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt; But, the Lord liveth, that brought up the children of Israel from the land of the north, and from all the lands whither he had driven them: and I will bring them again into their land that I gave unto their fathers.”

Zechariah 8: 1-8 “Again the word of the Lord of hosts came to me, saying, Thus saith the Lord of hosts; I was jealous for Zion with great jealousy, and I was jealous for her with great fury. Thus saith the Lord;I am returned unto Zion,and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and Jerusalem shall be called a city of truth; and the mountain of the Lord of hosts the holy mountain. Thus saith the Lord of hosts; There shall yet old men and old women dwell in the streets of Jerusalem, and every man with his staff in his hand for very age. And the streets of the city shall be full of boys and girls playing in the streets thereof. Thus saith the Lord of hosts;If it be marvelous in the eyes of the remnant of this people in these days, should it also be marvelous in mine eyes? Saith the Lord of hosts. Thus saith the Lord of hosts, Behold, I will save my people from the east country, and from the west country; And I will bring them, and they shall dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God, in truth and in righteousness.”

These prophecies have never been fulfilled and the time has come for the Lord to perform His strange act.We will now continue with verses 20-23:

Thus saith the Lord of hosts; It shall yet come to pass, that there shall come people, and the inhabitants of many cities: and the inhabitants of one city shall go to another, saying, Let us go speedily to pray before the Lord, and to seek the Lord of hosts: I will go also. Yea, many people and strong nations shall come to seek the Lord of hosts in Jerusalem, and to pray before the Lord. Thus saith the Lord of hosts; In those days it shall come to pass, that ten men shalltake hold out of all languages of thenations, even shall take hold of the skirtof him that is a Jew, saying, We will go with you: for we have heard that God is with you.”

Why should God speak so much about the restoration and yet not bring it to pass?

It is logical to conclude that the ten men who take hold of all the languages of the nations in the time of this great ingathering are figurative of a group of people (the church freed from tares in the harvest time), just as the ten virgins (Matt. 25:1) are figurative of the church while the tares are still commingled with wheat. The ten servants (Luke 19:13), and the ten horns (Rev. 12:3, 17:3) are numbers of universality. These ten men will speak all the languages as did the Apostles on the Pentecost.

Let us now quote from theReview and Herald, July 20, 1886.

“It is with an earnest longing that I look forward to the time when the events of the day of Pentecost shall be repeated with even greater power than on that occasion, John says, (Revelation 18:1).Then, as at the Pentecostal season, the people will hear the truth spoken to them, every man in his own tongue.”{Review and Herald, July 20, 1886}.

“There is nothing that Satan fears so much as that the people of God shall clear the way by removing every hindrance, so that the Lord can pour out His Spirit upon a languishing church and an impenitent congregation. If Satan had his way, there would never be another awakening, great or small, to the end of the time. But we are not ignorant of his devises. It is possible to resist his power. When the way is prepared for the Spirit of God the blessing will come.”{Review and Herald, March 22, 1887}.

Brethren, this is God’s plan. The Great Multitude of Rev. 7:9 are the multitude of souls from all nations, kindreds and tongues and people just prior to His coming who will be saved. 14 million SDAs is nothing in comparison to what God is about to do. The Lord has charted out that when this great influx of saints shall flow into His church the Headquarters of the Gospel would have moved to Jerusalem; bringing the attention of the nations to the cross of calvary.

How will God’s people get to Palestine from all over the world?

Isaiah 11: 15, 16And the Lord shall utterly destroy the tongue of the Egyptian sea; and with his mighty wind shall he shake his hand over the river, and shall smite it in the seven streams, andmake men go over dryshod. And there shall be an highway for the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria; like as it was to Israel in the day that he came up out of the land of Egypt.”

Do you believe that God divided the Red Sea? He plans to divide the seven (7) streams this time.

Take note of the expressions used in the following Bible texts.

“The Lord shall set His hand again the second time to recover the remnant of His people.”Isa. 11:11.

“I will bring them”Ezekiel 34:13

“I will take you from among the heathen.”

“I will bring you into your own land.”Ezekiel 36:24.

“I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen…I will gather them on every side.”Ezekiel 37:21.

“And I will bring them, and they shall dwell in the midst of Jerusalem.”Zechariah 8:6.

“The Lord liveth, which brought up and which led the seed of the house of Israel out of the North country.”

Jeremiah 23:8.

From the evidences produced it is clear that God says He will take His people to Palestine. He also says that He will divide the seas just as He divided the Red Sea and led the Israelites through on dry ground. Do you believe that our God is capable of taking us to Heaven, a distance beyond our imagination? Why then, can He not take His people to Palestine just a few thousand miles away? Isaiah chapter 60 gives us a clue as to how God may take the saints to Palestine.

Isaiah 60:5-9Then thou shalt see, and flow together, and thine heart shall fear, and be enlarged; because the abundance of the sea shall be converted unto thee, the forces of the Gentiles shall come unto thee. The multitude of camels shall cover thee, the dromedaries of Midian and Ephah, all they from Sheba shall come: they shall bring gold and incense; and they shall shew forth the praises of the Lord. All the flocks of Kedar, shall be gathered together unto thee, the rams of Nebaioth shall minister unto thee: they shall come up with acceptance on mine altar, and I will glorify the house of my glory.Who are these that fly as a cloud, and as the doves to their windows? Surely the isles shall wait for me, and the ships of Tarshish first, to bring thy sons from far, their silver and their gold with them, unto the name of the Lord thy God, and to the Holy One of Israel, because he hath glorified thee.

Our sons and daughters in the faith shall come as a storm by air and by sea. They shall come because the Lord will glorify all His people. The call, “Come out of her, My people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues” (Rev. 18:4), shall indeed along with the wealth of the Gentiles bring out “a great multitude which no man can number.” (Rev. 7:9).We are not promoting that anyone on his own accord at this time, move to Jerusalem to fulfill these prophecies. This gathering will not commence until the Lord divinely clears the land of the warring factions.

“The great work of the gospel is not to close with less manifestation of the power of God than marked its opening. The prophecies which were fulfilled in the outpouring of the former rain at the opening of the gospel are again to be fulfilled in the latter rain at its close.”The Great Controversy, pp. 611, 612.

My dear friends, God is here declaring that the gospel of the Kingdom is to close at the very same place where it began –in the land of Palestine.

Many have claimed that all these promises of the restoration of Israel were conditional upon their obedience. Therefore, since Israel failed in their commitment to God, He has forsaken these promises. Why don’t we hear from God Himself concerning this matter.


Jeremiah 31:7-10, 35-37 “For thus saith the Lord; Sing with gladness for Jacob, and shout among the chief of the nations: publish ye, praise ye, and say, O Lord, save thy people, the remnant of Israel. Behold, I will bring them from the north country, and gather them from the coasts of the earth, and with them the blind and the lame, the woman with child and her that travaileth with child together: a great company shall return thither. They shall come with weeping, and with supplications will I lead them: I will cause them to walk by the rivers of waters in a straight way, wherein they shall not stumble: for I am a father to Israel, and Ephraim is my firstborn.

Hear the word of the Lord, O ye nations, and declare it in the isles afar off, and say, He that scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him, as a shepherd doth his flock. Thus said the Lord, which giveth the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar; The Lord of hosts is his name:If those ordinances depart from before me, saith the Lord, then the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a nation beforeme for ever. Thus saith the Lord; If heaven above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth searched out beneath, I will also cast off all the seed of Israel for allthat they have done, saith the Lord.”

Do we need a clearer declaration that God will not disannul His promise of the restoration of Jerusalem because of Israel’s misdeeds? There has just been a delay so that the Gentiles could be grafted in and share in the promised blessings.

“That which God purposed to do for the world through Israel, the chosen nation, He will finally accomplish through His church on earth today.”{Prophets & Kings, p. 713}.

Romans 11:24-28 — “For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert grafted contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be grated into their own olive tree? For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits;that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.And so all Israel shall be saved; as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer. And shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins. As concerning the gospel they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the fathers’ sakes.”

Hosea 1:10Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured nor numbered; and it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people, there it shall be said unto them, Ye are the sons of the living God.”

Romans 10:11, 12For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.”

How privileged are we, and how glad ought we to be living when these long anticipated prophecies are to be fulfilled, and to have the grand privilege in partaking of this glory.

Let us examine further evidences:

Ezekiel 36: 16-23Moreover 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 own way and by their doings: their way was before me as the uncleanness of a removed woman. Wherefore I poured my fury upon them for the blood that they had shed upon the land, and for their idols wherewith they had polluted it: And I scattered them among the heathen, and they were dispersed through the countries: according to their way and according to their doings I judged them. And when they entered unto the heathen, whither they went, they profaned my holy name, when they said to them. These are the people of the Lord, and are gone forth out of his land. But I had pity for mine holy name, which the house of Israel had profaned among the heathen, whither they went. Therefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord God;I do not this for your sakes, O house of Israel, but for mine holy name’s sake, which ye have profaned among the heathen, whither ye went. And I will sanctify my great name, which was profaned among the heathen, which ye have profaned in the midst of them; and the heathen shall know that I am the Lord, saith the Lord God,when I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes.”


Ezekiel 36:24 “For I will take you from the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land.

Ezekiel makes it clear that for God to sanctify His great name, He must gather His faithful people from the four corners of the earth and take them back to the Promised Land. From there the final call will be made to mankind to return to God. Instead of bringing this world to an abrupt end, Gods’ intention is to sanctify His Great Name that has been profaned (disgraced) among the heathen. Not for our sake does He plan to sanctify His name through the remnant (144,000) before the eyes of the heathen. To do this, He says:

Ezekiel 36:25-27, 33-35 “Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean, from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you. A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statues, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them. Thus saith the Lord God; In the day that I shall have cleansed you from all your iniquities I will also cause you to dwell in the cities, and the wastes shall be builded.And the desolate land shall be tilled, whereas it lay desolate in the sight of all that passed by.And they shall say,This land that was desolate is become like the garden of Eden; and the waste and desolate and ruined cities are become fenced, and are inhabited.”As is stated in Isaiah 11 that the lamb and the lion will be feeding together, Ezekiel 36 is describing the same Edenic condition that will exist only in that part of the world when the Lord makes Jerusalem a city of praise.

Unfamiliar as these things may sound, that is the plan of the Lord. These verses need no interpretation or explanation, they mean just what they say.

Counsels to Writers& Editors pg. 37tells us that we will have many lessons to learn and many many things to unlearn. “We have many lessons to learn, and many, many to unlearn. God and heaven alone are infallible. Those who think that they will never have to give up a cherished view, never have occasion to change an opinion, will be disappointed. As long as we hold to our own ideas and opinions with determined persistency, we cannot have the unity for which Christ prayed.”

Isaiah 11 said the lion will be eating straw like the ox. Ezekiel 36 is now saying that the land Palestine will miraculously become like the Garden of Eden.

To show that all this takes place in probationary time let us take a look at the following verses of the same chapter.

Ezekiel 36:36-38Then the heathen that are leftround about you shall know that I the Lord build the ruined places, and plant that that was desolate I the Lord have spoken it, and I will do it. Thus saith the Lord God; I will yet for this be inquired of by the house of Israel, to do it for them;I will increase them with men like a flock. As the holy flock, as the flock of Jerusalem in her solemn feasts; so shall the waste cities be filled with flocks of men: and they shall know that I am the Lord.”

Before God brings this world to an end, He will let the heathen know that He is God. To do this He will manifest a little of His creative powers to defy the evolutionists who have taken over the world. Notice also that when this Edenic state is recreated probation is not yet closed. It will be the time for the ingathering of the Great Multitude. All God’s people will be protected and fed when the seven last plagues will be falling. Why do you think that when the 6thplague begins to fall all the great men are being gathered at Armageddon to fight? The Spirit of Prophecy says that the wicked will blame the saints for the plagues that are falling on them.

Let us read carefully the following verses on the same subject of restoration and see what is common about them.

Ezekiel 37:15-22, 24,25 “The word of the Lord came again unto me, saying, Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one stick, and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions: then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim, and for all the house of Israel his companions: And join them one to another into one stick; and they shall become one in thine hand. And when the children of thy people shall speak unto thee, saying, Wilt thou not shew us what thou meanest by these? Say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel his fellows, and will put them with him, even with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they shall be one in mine hand. And the sticks whereon thou writest shall be in thine hand before their eyes. And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land: And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all:……And David my servantshall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statues, and do them. And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob my servant, wherein your fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, even they, and their children, and their children’s children for ever:and my servant Davidshall be their prince for ever.”

Hosea 3:4, 5 “For the children of Israel shall abide many days without a king, and without a prince, and without a sacrifice, and without an image, and without an ephod, and without teraphim. Afterward shall the children of Israel return, and seek the Lord their God, andDavid their king; and shall fear the Lord and his goodness in thelatter days.”

Ezekiel 34:11-13, 23, 24 “For thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I, even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out. As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day. And I will bring them out from the people, and gather them from the countries, and will bring them to their own land, and feed them upon the mountains of Israel by the rivers, and in all the inhabited places of the country……..And I will set up one shepherd over them, and he shall feed them, even myservant David; he shall feed them, and he shall be their shepherd. And I the LORD will be their God, andmy servant Davida prince among them; I the LORD have spoken it.”

Have you seen what is common about these Scriptures just quoted? Let us continue:

Jeremiah 30:1-9 “The word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying, Thus speaketh the LORD God of Israel, saying, Write thee all the words that I have spoken unto thee in a book. For, lo, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will bring again the captivity of my people Israel and Judah, saith the LORD: and I will cause them to return to the land that I gave to their fathers, and they shall possess it. And these are the words that the LORD spake concerning Israel and concerning Judah. For thus saith the LORD; We have heard a voice of trembling, of fear, and not of peace. “Ask ye now, and see whether a man doth travail with child? wherefore do I see every man with his hands on his loins, as a woman in travail, and all faces are turned into paleness? Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble; but he shall be saved out of it. For it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD of hosts, that I will break his yoke from off thy neck, and will burst thy bonds, and strangers shall no more serve themselves of him: But they shall serve the LORD their God, andDavid their king, whom I will raise up unto them.

As we reviewed Jacob’s experience we saw where he stole Esau’s birthright, then fled to Padanaram. After becoming rich, the Lord instructed him to return to his father’s land. On his way back home, he was informed that Esau was before him with four hundred men and Laban was behind; He was in great fear.

One night he had an encounter with an angel whom he thought was an enemy. He struggled all night with this supposed foe and finally realized it was the Lord. This struggle was called,‘Jacob’s Time of Trouble.’How perfect are the Scriptures! Here we are told that just before modern Israel returns to the Promised Land they too will have a Time of Trouble brought upon them by theiruncle Labanand their brother Esau. This represents persecution that the remnant people of God will experience behind and ahead of them as they journey homeward. As Esau sought the aid of the four hundred gentiles, likewise the brethren will seek the help of the civil authority to persecute the promoters of this “Revival and Reformation” message. The Spirit of Prophecy speaks against such actions which we are experiencing even at the present.

“Notwithstanding Christ’s warning, men have sought to uproot the tares. To punish those who were supposed to be evildoers, the church has had recourse to the civil power. Those who differed from the established doctrines have been imprisoned, put to torture and to death, at the instigation of men who claimed to be acting under the sanction of Christ. But it is the spirit of Satan, not the Spirit of Christ, that inspires such acts. This is Satan’s own method of bringing the world under his dominion. God has been misrepresented through the church by this way of dealing with those supposed to be heretics.”{Christ Object Lesson, p. 741}.

But praise the Lord He has promised us deliverance from our anguish and pain. All these profound Scriptures are proclaiming far and near that the time is at hand for therestoration of theDavidic Kingdom. This will be a manifestation of God’s power and glory to the universe just prior to the falling of the seven last plagues and Christ’s second coming. There are some who have the religious belief of this restoration, but they put it in the time of the millennium, while others place it after. As we know, the earth is void of human occupancy and activities, during the 1000 years of Rev. 20.

Let us summarize some of the things we have been studying so far.

Since 1948 the Jews from all over the world have been gathering together in Palestine and have been occupying Arab lands which has led to a continual bloody conflict in the region. According to Joel 3 a divine call is to be made to the nations (both the weak and the strong), to arm themselves. The next great event is World War III that will be centered in the Mideast. The root of this war is the 2500 years of conflict between Jews and Arabs. This will spread until the whole world will be involved or affected. The United States alliance with Israel has, and will continue to provoke the Arabs.

By the USA and her allies allying themselves with the Jews, they will eventually share in the wrath of God that will be poured out upon them. In this war God is to intervene against Assyria (USA and her allies), to humble her and her allies militarily. This humiliation will thus draw Assyria to God. Many will be brought to repentance and will be saved in God’s eternal Kingdom. During this war a final call will be made to God’s church (the SDA) for a “revival and reformation.” This will result in God’s sealing the 144,000 first fruits, who then will be endowed with Pentecostal Power to proclaim the Loud Cry of the Third Angel’s Message to the rest of the world, resulting in the ingathering of the Great Multitude. According to Zechariah 14:1,2, the Jews – Jerusalem will eventually be defeated by her enemies, after which God will bring against the victors a flesh consuming plague that will clear the land of all warring elements. This plague will also cause them to kill themselves.

Having rid the land of these belligerents God will then miraculously restore the land to an Edenic condition, and will gather all the saints from the four corners of the earth into the Holy Land. There they will live in peace for a short time before Christ’s return.

Let us note at this point that the Promised Land, according to Genesis 15:18 stretches from the River Euphrates to the River of Egypt. That means, Iraq, Lebanon, Jordan, Syria, are also in the Promised Land.

Genesis 15:18In the same day the Lord made a covenant with Abraham, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates.”

The magnitude of what God is about to do we cannot comprehend or even imagine. The war is just a precursor of these great events. In the midst of all this crisis God’s people who are proclaiming this unpopular message will incur the wrath of many in the church and in the world. This will bring upon them a time of trouble symbolized by “Jacob’s Time Of Trouble.” They are admonished by the Lord not to fear because God will deliver them.


So few Bible students and theologians understand correctly the battle of Gog and Magog. Let us look at the views of Dr. Hindson from D-R Farwell Liberty University:

“The crisis in the Middle East is escalating beyond imagination. In fact, it is beginning to look a lot like the scenario for the Battle of Gog and Magog predicted by the prophet Ezekiel. In its incredible prophecy of an “end times” invasion of Israel by an alliance of nations, Ezekiel 38-39 names many of the nations that have been raising voices of hostility in recent days: Iran, Libya and Jordan. The evening news is punctuated with biblical names that carry great prophetic significance: Tyre, Sidon Damascus, Tiberias and Jerusalem. The eyes of the world are riveted on this explosive region, wondering what will happen next.” {Taken from “National Liberty Journal”, Sept. 2006, pg. 3}.

There are many theologians today claiming that the present war in Israel is the war of Ezekiel 38 where it states that Gog and Magog are to launch an aerial attack on Israel. A close study of this chapter will reveal that it is impossible that this war could be the fulfillment of this prophecy. As we will see Gog and Magog will prepare to launch an aerial attack on Jerusalem after it is restored and the inhabitants there are dwelling safely. Also we will see that their attempt to attack the restored Kingdom will face utter defeat, not victory.

Ezekiel 38:8, 11, 12, 14, 16 “After many days thou shall be visited: in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them. And thou shalt say, I will go up to theland of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, thatdwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates, To take a spoil, and to take prey; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land. Therefore, son of man, prophecy and say unto Gog, Thus saith the Lord God; In that day when my people of Israel dwelleth safely, shalt thou not know it?And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring thee againstmy land, that the heathen may know me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog,before their eyes.”

The nations (Gog and Magog) that shall refuse to be converted to the Lord will become jealous of the saints and shall marshall their forces together to launch an aerial attack (as a cloud) upon the newly established Kingdom. But little do they know that the saints have an invisible impenetrable protection.

Isaiah 31:5As birds flying, so will the Lord of hosts defend Jerusalem defending also he will deliver it; and passing over he will preserve it.”

Zechariah 2:4, 5And said unto him, Run, speak to this young man, saying, Jerusalem shall be inhabited as towns without walls for the multitude of men and cattle therein: For I, saith the Lord, will be unto her a wall of fire round about, and will be the glory in the midst of her.”

At the time that these rebellious nations choose to attack the restored Kingdom, God will manifest His power in a way that it will be felt world wide. This will bring us to the time of the plagues just prior to the saints being taken to heaven to spend the millennium (1000 years) with the Lord.

Ezekiel 38:18-23.And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, [that] my fury shall come up in my face. For in my jealousy [and] in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel; So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that [are] upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord GOD: every man’s sword shall be against his brother. And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that [are] with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone. Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I [am] the LORD.” We notice again that the Lord’s weapon against His enemy is to let them kill themselves as was seen in Gideon’s case and the forthcoming war in Palestine. (Zech. 14:13). Manifestly clear, He allows all these things to take place, so that the nations can acknowledge that He is the Creator and Redeemer. The war of Gog and Magog culminates in the battle of Armageddon and the Seven Last Plagues. Amid all this turmoil and calamity the saints will be resting peacefully in the restored Kingdom awaiting the second coming of the Lord.

1 Thessalonian 4:15-18.“For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive [and] remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive [and] remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.”

According to Revelation 20:1-5 the saints will go to heaven and live 1000 years after which they will return to the re-created earth (Rev. 21) and live for ever and ever.

Wonderful indeed is God’s plan to finally glorify His name. No doubt you may be concluding that these are strange doctrines. The good news is that it is written in the Holy Scriptures. If we are wrong on these Scriptures, please give us some better explanation.

One may refuse to believe that men can live in peace on the earth before the earth is made new. I want you to carefully consider the amount of times the Lord has repeated Himself concerning this subject.


Where does the Mark of the Beast (The Sunday Law) fit into this sequence of events?

As SDAs, all we seem to be concerned about is the rise of the Papacy and the #666. Many are concerned how they have not seen the institution of the long anticipated Sunday Law, yet so many strange things are happening around us. The Testimony has this to say:

“By the decree enforcing the institution of the papacy in violation of the law of God, our nation will disconnect herself fully from righteousness. When Protestantism shall stretch her hand across the gulf to grasp the hand of the Roman power, when she shall reach over the abyss to clasp hands with spiritualism, when, under the influence of this threefold union, our country shall repudiate every principle of its Constitution as a Protestant and republican government, and shall make provision for the propagation of papal falsehoods and delusions, then we may know that the time has come for the marvelous working of Satan and that the end is near.”{Testimonies, Vol. 5, p. 451}.

Seeing that there is a crusade by the leaders of this country to keep the church and the state separated, how do you think this country will come to the point of repudiating its constitution, and enforcing a religious dogma upon the nation?

Only a national crisis can bring this about. History shows that it was after Pagan Rome was overthrown by theBarbarianthat she cunningly came back to power under a religious garb–the Papacy.

A great nation will only turn to religion after it is militarily humiliated under the mighty hand of God. After the military fall of antitypical Assyria (the USA/England and their allies), Babylon the Great rises, represented by the Beast of Revelation 17. This beast represents the last world government which will be a religio-political, commercial empire–church and state. This system will be the Image of the Beast with the enforcement of the Sunday Law. The Two-horned Beast of Revelation chapter 13 (The USA) will be the leader in initiating this one world government as is portrayed in the following verses.

Revelation 13:16. 17And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.”

It is during this time that God’s faithful remnant (the 144,000) will proclaim the Loud Cry message and gather the Great Multitude from the four corners of the earth out of Babylon before the falling of the seven last plagues. In describing the fall of Babylon the Bible says:

Revelation 18:1-4,10, 11, 16, 17: “And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. “Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come. And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more: And saying, Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls! For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off.”

Our study so far is indicating that after the fall of Assyria (military humiliation), a one world religio-political, commercial empire (Babylon the Great) is to emerge which will be short lived. It is during this short time of apparent prosperity that the final call of verse 4 will be given to the world.

“The Bible declares that before the coming of the Lord, Satan will work `withallpower and signs and lying wonders, and with all deceivableness of unrighteousness;’ and they that `received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved,’ will be left to receive `strong delusion, that they should believe a lie.’ 2 Thessalonians 2:9-11. Not until this condition shall be reached, and the union of the church with the world shall be fully accomplished throughout Christendom, will the fall of Babylon be complete. The change is a progressive one, and the perfect fulfillment of Revelation 14:8 is yet future.

“Notwithstanding the spiritual darkness and alienation from God that exist in the churches which constitute Babylon, the great body of Christ’s true followers are still to be found in their communion.

“Revelation 18 points to the time when, as the result of rejecting the threefold warning of Revelation 14:6-12, the church will have fully reached the condition foretold by the second angel, and the people of God still in Babylon will be called upon to separate from her communion. This message is the last that will ever be given to the world; and it will accomplish its work.”The Great Controversy, pp. 389, 390.

Another important point that needs to be highlighted is, that the four winds (which represents the Mark of the Beast, 5T:152) will not blow until the saints are sealed. It will take a sealed group of people to proclaim the Loud Cry despite the fact of a death decree.


An Innumerable Multitude of Living Saints

“I saw that God had children who do not see and keep the Sabbath. They have not rejected the light upon it.And at the commencement of the Time of Trouble, we were filled with the Holy Ghost as we went forth and proclaimed the Sabbath more fully.”Early Writings, p. 33.

“`The commencement of that time of trouble’ here mentioned, does not refer to the time when the plagues shall begin to be poured out, but to a short period just before they are poured out, while Christ is in the sanctuary. At that time, while the work of salvation is closing, trouble will be coming on the earth, and the nations will be angry, yet held in check so as not to prevent the work of the third angel. At that time the `latter rain,’ or refreshing from the presence of the Lord, will come, to give power to the Loud Voice of the Third Angel,….” {Early Writings, pp. 85, 86}.

“…only those who have withstood temptation in the strength of the Mighty One will be permitted to act a part in proclaiming it (the third angel’s message) when it shall have swelled into theLoud Cry.” {Review & Herald, Nov. 19, 1908}.

“Those who come up to every point, and stand every test, and overcome, be the price what it may, have heeded the counsel of the True Witness, and they will receive the latter rain, and thus be fitted for translation.”{Testimonies, vol. 1, pp. 187, 188}.

The great work of the gospel is not to close with less manifestation of the power of God than marked its opening. The prophecies which were fulfilled in the outpouring of the former rain at the opening of the gospel are again to be fulfilled in the latter rain at its close.”{The Great Controversy, p. 611}.

“Servants of God, with their faces lighted up and shining with holy consecration, will hasten from place to place to proclaim the message from heaven. By thousands of voices, all over the earth, the warning will be given. Miracles will be wrought, the sick will be healed, and signs and wonders will follow the believers. Satan also works, with lying wonders, even bringing down fire from heaven in the sight of men. Revelation 13:13. Thus the inhabitants of the earth will be brought to take their stand.” {TheGreat Controversy, p. 612.

“Among earth’s inhabitants, scattered in every land, there are those who have not bowed the knee to Baal. Like the stars of heaven, which appear only at night, these faithful ones will shine forth when darkness covers the earth and gross darkness the people. In heathen Africa, in the Catholic lands of Europe and of South America, in China, in India, in the islands of the sea, and in all the dark corners of the earth, God has in reserve a firmament of chosen ones that will yet shine forth amidst the darkness, revealing clearly to an apostate world the transforming power of obedience to His law.”{Prophets and Kings, pp. 188, 189}.

“The time of God’s destructive judgments is the time of mercy for those who have no opportunity to learn what is truth. Tenderly will the Lord look upon them.His heart of mercy is touched: His hand is still stretched out to save, while the door is closed to those who would not enter. Large numbers will be admitted who in these last days hear the truth for the first time. {Review & Herald, July 5, 1906.” 7A Bible Commentary 979, E.G. White}.

Here we see that the door of probation is closed for one class of people while it is still open for those who have never heard the truth before. Since the judgment begins at the house of God, (1 Peter 4:17) it must be that probation closes for God’s church before it does for the world (See 1 Selected Messages, p. 63). Thus we see, that the judgment for the dead must be completed (1 Selected Messages, p. 125) before the judgment for the living begins. Both sections of the judgment are to be completed before probation closes for the world. The Bible and the Spirit of Prophecy have made it plain that the judgment for the living has not yet commenced, and will not until the 144,000 are sealed. The judgment for the living begins with the purification (separation of the wheat and the tares) of God’s remnant church, which will enable her to finish her God appointed work in the world to bring in the last great harvest(Christ Object Lessons, p. 69)

“Clad in the armor of Christ’s righteousness, the church is to enter upon her final conflict. `Fair as the moon, clear as the sun, and terrible as an army with banners’ (Song of Solomon 6:10) she is to go forth into all the world, conquering and to conquer.”{Prophets and Kings, p. 725}.

God does not send judgments upon His people without first warning them to repent. He uses every means to bring them back to obedience and does not visit their iniquity with judgments until He has given them ample opportunity to repent.”{Testimonies, vol. 4, p. 179}.

“The Lord does not now work to bring many souls into the truth, because of the church members who have never been converted, and those who were once converted, but have backslidden. What influence would these unconsecrated members have on new converts? Would they not make of no effect the God-given message which His people are to bear?”{Testimonies, vol. 6, p. 371}.

Now we can clearly see why there must be a sifting of God’s people before the Loud Cry can be given. The cause of weakness must first be removed before valiant service can be expected in the field. A Gideon’s band is mightier than the host of Midian. God’s people will never be prepared to attack the sins of Babylon as long as the principle of Babylon is in their hearts. Therefore the giving of the Loud Cry must be preceded by a message to God’s people, which will accomplishan entire separation from Babylon.” {Review & Herald, Feb. 4, 1902, by Elder Brunson}.

(SDA Former Teaching On The 144,000)

The 144,000 are said to be `without fault’ or `without blemish,’ which is the language used in describing all first fruits. They must be the `first’ in both time and quality, the `best’ and `chief’ fruits of the field or vineyard. The first fruits have been defined as `the fruit or product first matured and collected in any season.’ `Matured’ is from the Latin maturus, meaning `ripe, of full age, perfected by time or natural growth, brought to perfection, completed, prepared, ready.’ The 144,000 are the first to be brought to perfection of character in the gospel harvest of the last generation. They reach mature spiritual growth and are sealed and given the Holy Spirit in the `latter rain’ showers, the purpose of which is to call the innumerable company of God’s people out of spiritual Babylon before God’s wrath is poured out upon the rejectors of His grace in the seven last plagues.” {Signs of The Times, May 3, 1927, p. 13}.

May it be our privilege to be among that select group which the Spirit of Prophecy describes: “And as we were about to enter the holy temple, Jesus raised His lovely voice and said, `Only the 144,000 enter this place.’ and we shouted `Alleluia.'” {Early Writings, p. 19}.


This temple was supported by seven pillars, all of transparent gold, set with pearls most glorious. The wonderful things I there saw I cannot describe. Oh, that I could talk in the language of Canaan, then could I tell a little of the glory of the better world. I saw there tables of stone in which the names of the 144,000 were engraved in letters of gold.”{Early Writings, p. 19}.

But what is the mystery of God?–`Christ in you, the hope of glory.’ `God…manifest in the flesh.’ Then in these days that mystery is to be finished in one hundred and forty-four thousand. God’s work in human flesh, God being manifested in human flesh, in you and me, is to be finished. His work upon you and me is to be finished. We are to be perfected in Jesus Christ. By the Spirit we are to come unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the nature of the fullness of Christ.” Lessons on Faith, (Jones & Waggoner), p. 158.

“God will work a work in our day that but few anticipate. He will raise up and exalt among us those who are taught rather by the unction of His Spirit than by the outward training of scientific institutions. These facilities are not to be despised or condemned; they are ordained of God, but they can furnish only the exterior qualifications. God will manifest that He is not dependent on learned, self-important mortals.”{Testimonies to the Church, vol. 5, p. 82}.

THE COLON:“Dr. Richard Schulze Intestinal Detoxification: “The digestive system and colon health have reached an all time low and in the U.S. diseases of the digestive tract are n the rise…the #1 cancer in men and women was colon rectal. Modern life-style has taken its toll on our digestive/elimination organs. The frequency at which a normal, healthy person should move their bowels has been a great misconception among the public and most medical professionals. For years, doctors have thought that between one bowel movement per day and one per week was acceptable and normal. With more primitive peoples, we find that their bowels moved much more frequently, 2 to 3 times daily. What we have learned is that it is normal to have one bowel movement a day for each meal you eat( if you eat 3 meals, you should have 3 bowels movements).

“Diverticula are saccular herniations that protrude through the wall of the colon. These `bowel pockets’ are almost always asymptomatic (you can’t feel them). They are caused by a sluggish, constipated bowel. The pockets fill with old fecal material that can be reabsorbed back into the bloodstream. This can infect the entire body causing all types of toxic reactions.

“But 85% to 90% of everything you eat is going to cause mucus to be formed. The mucus lining in the bowel thickens. Nature’s protective mechanism, which was designed for occasional use only, is being forced to work continuously with no rest and no chance to eliminate the mucus that is being laid down faster than it can be eliminated. Layer piles upon layer. Dr. Forsyth explained that this can become so severe that there is almost no opening left for the waste to pass through the colon at all. More people are becoming aware of the importance of cleaning the colon. I was amazed how all poisons and decaying matter just kept coming out. Rotting food and decaying fecal matter at least 5 years old can be found in the colon. It lodges in the accumulated mucus. When we turn our sewage systems into cesspools, it’s no wonder we don’t feel well.Dr. William D. Kelley; Cleaning the Mucus Lining the Small Intestine is Vital. If there were only one kind of pill that would help everybody, the cancer patient or otherwise, it would be Okra Pepsin E3. It would probably do the nation’s health more good than any other single pill. It digest the mucus that coats the walls of many people’s small intestine. Certain foods, such as pasteurized milk and many cooked foods, cause the mucus buildup on the wall of the small intestine (raw foods do not cause this mucus buildup). The mucus coats the villi on the all of the small intestine. The villi are like tiny fingers that stick out from the intestinal wall to absorb nutrients.


The Cause — Bacteria and the Metal Nickel,Shrink, Eliminate Problems & Maintain a Healthy Prostate

“The need to urinate again and again suggests pressure on the uretha from an enlarged prostate. We get nervous when diagnosed with an enlarged prostate or an above normal PSA. Some look for alternatives to drugs or surgery. Natural products are suggested that typically usepygeum africanum, saw palmetto, nettles, panax ginseng, zinc, flax seed oil, cranberry extractwhich may have a reducing effect. What is not clear is what they do and why. Reasons are given, but they do not identify what actually causes the prostate to become enlarged.An enlarged prostate is just another internal organ that is abused, polluted, distorted and invaded by pollutants, parasites, bacteria. The prostate is next to the colon and actually touches it. If the surrounding tissues and lymph system are blocked and polluted, it prevents the prostate from flushing out its toxins.The colon and prostate have a definite relationship. By keeping your colon clean you help keep your prostate clean. A great start, but not the whole story.Specific Culprits Cause the Prostate to Swell: The Prostate is like a garbage site that collects trash, pollutants and toxins. For some reason, themetal nickelis always drawn to the prostate. Any nickel absorbed by the body accumulates in the prostate in men (breast in women). Nickel does not belong in our body! What is the effect of having the prostate loaded with nickel?Bacterial invasion that causes the prostate to become enlarged! Urinary tract bacteria need nickel and are attracted to the prostate because of nickel. They massively reproduce, causing the prostate to swell. Without nickel, bacteria will not survive.

A clue is ammonia smell. Urine does not smell of ammonia. We do not make ammonia, but bacteria do. Urine smell of ammonia indicates massive bacteria in the prostate. Why do bacteria need nickel? Urinary tract bacteria use your urea as their food. To digest it, they break the urea molecule apart into ammonia molecules, and their digestive enzyme, urease, requires nickel to do its job.The immediate answer to shrink an enlarged prostate is to destroy bacteria and begin to eliminate decades of nickel buildup. Long term, the solution is to stop absorbing nickel. Prostate problems can be gone when bacteria don’t have nickel.

Silver Water Destroys Bacteria in the Prostate: To shrink an enlarged prostate, you must drink from 5 – 15 ounces or more daily. There is no general rule. Drink more initially, and then drop to one or two ounce daily maintenance. You feel its positive effect very quickly.” {Excerpts taken From: True Health & Healing, p. 11}

The Most Serious Metal Offender of the Body is Nickel: Of all metals that accumulate in the body, nickel is by far the most prevalent. It surpasses mercury, copper, chromium, lead, cadmium and asbestos. Nickel is everywhere, and we absorb microscopic traces daily. Over time, the body loses its ability to detoxify nickel and it accumulates. Pots, pans and utensils all contain nickel. Stainless steel is 8% nickel. A knife in mayonnaise reacts to loosen nickel and a nickel film comes off that you eat. Metal jewelry, watches, eyeglasses, rings, chains and bracelets introduce nickel into the skin. Nickel is fat soluble, stored in the skin fat and transported into the body.

“The Primary Source of Nickel is Dentalware: Nickel is fillings, bridges, gold, retainers, amalgams, braces, crowns, and it seeps into the body for decades. When we are younger, the body is able to detoxify and eliminate nickel. But with a constant stream over the years, the body loses its ability and nickel accumulates. At age 50 plus, so many people have an abundance of nickel accumulation. Nickel buildup in the prostate is the underlying cause of prostate enlargement. Urinary tract bacterial love, need and thrive on nickel. They invade the prostate, massively reproduce and cause it to swell. They must have nickel to survive and reproduce. Silver Water is the wonder product that kills the bacteria, but as long as nickel remains, bacteria return. Nickel is pervasive in the body tissue and accumulates in the prostate (men) and breast (women).

Nickel Eliminator” Removes Nickel: Nickel Eliminator (capsule) is amazingly effective in eliminating nickel from the body! Shortly after taking it, you know something is happening. Eliminating decades of nickel accumulation in the prostate takes months, a year or longer, but eliminating nickel from the body tissue happens quickly!

“The Liver is Our most Vital Organ and May Even Determine Our Life Span: “It is the main detoxifying gland, and its capability to detoxify food, chemicals and foreign substances is the basis os our health. It has miles of bile ducts, and when some are obstructed, others take over. But when a whole section gets obstructed it can no longer detoxify a whole set of chemicals, and chemicals enter the bloodstream and travel throughout the body, even the brain.

“Liver Flush is as Dramatic, Effective and Rewarding as Colon Cleanse: “Eliminating stones dramatically improves digestion, the basis of our health. Allergies and pain can disappear and you will have mor energy and a sense of well being. A liver flush can eliminate hundreds of stones and clean out miles of bile ducts. The liver’s job is to make bile, and bile ducts choked with stones obstructs the flow of bile resulting in less bile being produced. Without enough bile, the body gets toxic, cannot metabolize nutrients and cause increased cholesterol. Bile removes excess cholesterol, emulsifies fat, breaks down saturated fats into unsaturated, and is necessary to eliminate chemicals, toxins and pollutants. The bile ducts can be full of cholesterol as stones prevent cholesterol from leaving the body.”

What You Need To Do The Liver Flush

3 Quarts APPLE JUICE (natural, not concentrate, no sugar added); One Cup Olive Oil (extra virgin); 8 to 12 oz. Sparkling Grape Juice (room temperature, preferable bottle); Juice from Lemon (freshly squeezed lemon juice; `Super Phosphorus 30 drops (can be purchased from N.M.S. Publishing).” {Excerpts Taken From:“True Health & Healing” pp. 4, 5, 16, 17}.
