POLITICAL POLICIES V/S BIBLE PROPHECY


PART 2


FEBRUARY 1998



WE ARE DEALING WITH THIS MESSAGE HOPING TO SHED SOME LIGHT ON WHAT IS TAKING PLACE IN HIGH PLACES, CONCERNING A NEW WORLD ORDER AND WHETHER THIS THING IS THE BEAST OF REVELATION 13:1, OR WHETHER IT IS JUST A SCARECROW DESIGNED BY SATAN TO THROW RELIGION OFF THE TRAIL. HE DOES NOT WANT THE PEOPLE WHO PROFESS FAITH IN GOD TO KNOW WHO, OR WHAT THE REAL BEAST IS, BUT THE BIBLE MAKES IT CLEAR, AND THAT IS OUR PURPOSE: TO REVEAL WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS AND TRY TO SHOW YOU WHERE AND HOW IT FITS INTO THIS END TIME PICTURE, SO GIVE ME YOUR ATTENTION AND FOLLOW THE THOUGHT WHEN WE DEAL WITH THESE VARIOUS SCRIPTURES.


The question is asked, What is the beast of Revelation 13:1, and where does it fit into the picture in our day? Well the key is recorded in Revelation 17. You have to reflect back to the continent of Europe, to see the same beast the apostle John saw. There, is where you will find it. When God destroys this system, time lays the finger of God on Europe. Do not forget, Europe is already restored. Europe, geographically, is already in position to fulfill her end time role in prophecy. All she is waiting on, is for the finger of God to give her the signal. Let me say this, Europe will come to the forefront to finish this picture out. When God breaks up this U.N. body, Europe is already a united area of a continent: Those ten horns are united in trade, they are united politically, and socially, so God will just simply give them the go-ahead to finish out their destiny. At that time, the pope will become the voice of the beast. There is no way you are ever going to get the pope to be allowed to dictate terms or have authority over the U.N. body. Think of it saints, The Bible has the whole picture laid out before us. When you look at the 5th verse of Zechariah 12, the language structure of this is as it was written in the B.C. period, and translated into English, into modern English terminology, so I am going to try to read it for the thought it conveys. The verse really points to that period of time when from the standpoint of the Jewish people and the leadership of Israel, it is basically the southern tribe, Judah which has born the blunt of these fifty years of national restoration, that it points to. “And the governors of Judah shall say in their heart, (That is different than saying it with their mouth.) The inhabitants of Jerusalem shall be my strength in the Lord.” What does that literally mean? It means there will come a time when God will move upon the hearts of the Jewish people, especially the tribe of Judah, because Jerusalem is inside the area of the tribe of Judah, and they will feel like this. He is going to cause the Jewish people of that day to begin to think, I am made to believe that when the day comes we decide that Jerusalem will be ours that we will see to it that this city will be set aside for God to bring His people back that lived there, and are supposed to live there, then God will be everything to us: He will work on our side, He will be in favor of us. Not until Judah says that in their heart and begins to think that way, will this prophecy really start to be fulfilled. You would think, because they gave us the Bible, it should already be that way. One place in the Old Testament God says He chose Israel to be a servant of His, to be a witness to the Gentiles. Therefore they were supposed to be that, but today they have been scattered among the Gentiles for so long they have picked up our habits, and our traditions. They still try to keep on with the ceremonial side of the law, but it is a known fact, that much of it has lost its meaning. They act much like a people wandering in the darkness of formality, bewildered, not knowing where they are going, even though the pages of their own book should be enough to enlighten them. I do not make these remarks to belittle them though, because God has to deal with them in these closing days in the manner that He has said He will, in order to get them to that place. That is why God must work in the Middle East in a supernatural way, which goes completely contrary to all the world’s leadership and their political policies and ideas. Think of it, Today, you are unable to get political leaders the world over, to talk about God in the reality of what is written in the Bible. When Sunday morning comes, they will go tot he Catholic Church, the Episcopalian, and most of the others as well, simply because they want people to think they are religious. They are religious, as far as religion goes; but most of them have no concept whatsoever of what true Christianity is all about: They are hypocrites. They pretend to be believers, but with no sincerity, and certainly with no reality. In fact, they do not even want God to move on the scene. As for the words in the 6th verse, we have to realize this will take place when the city of Jerusalem begins to be the real issue, that it is slowly warming up to be. We are watching it for that time. As it warms up to that, and as the issue gets hotter, after a while when it gets so hot it becomes evident that something has to give, the world leaders will say, Look, we have to take this thing away from them and settle this dispute once and for all time. Notice how this verse reads. “In that day will I make the governors of Judah like an hearth of fire among the wood, (meaning it is almost like a fireplace) and like a torch of fire in a sheaf; and they shall devour all the people round about. (Watch out Palestinians, that time is coming. The U.N. cannot stop it.) On the right hand and on the left: and Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place.” By whom? Jews. It is not a Palestinian city. It never was, and never will be. It is true, after 69 A.D. when Jerusalem fell to the Romans, the Romans took the healthy Jews away for slaves and left the poor and sick to whatever fate awaited them. The city basically was in ruins, just a shambles. Through the centuries of time, as I have said in the past, Arabs living in the Bedouin desert across the Jordan, began to hear about what had happened to the Jews. Slowly they began to immigrate out of the desert countries and claim the land. That is where they came from, so when the day comes that you hear of the Israeli army convoys lining them up, loading them up and hauling them back across the river, they are just giving them a free ride back home. That is all it amounts to. If God says, In the last days He will re-gather Israel out of all the nations where He has driven them, and I will bring you back and plant you in the land and never again will you be plucked up, then God has a process by which He will deal with something that has occupied the land during that period of time. It is not as though it is not known where they have come from, it is automatically known they came from the desert countries, the countries of the half brothers to the Jews, the descendants of Ishmael, descendants of Esau, on and on like this. As they heard about Israel, that the Jews were gone, they thought they would take advantage of it, and through time they did exactly that. That is why the Crusader period, in the 10th, 11th, and 12th centuries, gathered thousands and thousands of families of Christians, so called, all over the European continent. They traveled by horse back, on carts, and some walked on foot to make their way to Israel to free that land and the Holy City from the Moslem Arabs that had come in and occupied it. Three great skirmishes over the period of centuries followed. Jerusalem gradually became restored out of the ruins of the Roman invasion, to be occupied by these Arab people who did not have any sense of hygiene or decency about them. Jerusalem because occupied by such people and the streets because the latrine. That is why it smelled so terrible all the time. That is why it says in Isaiah 17, “They that made thee desolate shall be far removed.” God remembers all of what has taken place.


FALSE HOPES OF THE OSLO ACCORD


When I look at this map of the Middle East, and see under the Oslo Accord, all the populated areas of Arabs by which Israel has to pull the military back from, allowing all those areas to fall under this Palestinian self government rule, it speaks of a scriptural impossibility. The city of Jerusalem would then become a compound city. Do you know what that would mean? Then there would be no way this passage of scripture here in Zechariah 12 could be fulfilled, “And Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place.” It has been inhabited for hundreds of years by Arabs. Well then what does this verse mean? It certainly does not mean it will be inhabited by Arabs. It means there is a definite period of time to come when God will cause Jerusalem to become a focal point of world attention, and God’s main objective in that is that this will bring about a condition that will result in a complete deliverance of the city and the land about it, from the Arabs. The Palestinians will literally be driven out because they cannot co-exist in the same land with the Jews as time comes down to the end of this Age. Let us now go on down to the 7th and 8th verses. “The LORD also shall save the tents of Judah first, (meaning the dwelling places) that the glory of the house of David and the glory of the inhabitants of Jerusalem do not magnify themselves against Judah. (He has already done that. In reality the Six Day War in 1967 established the fulfillment of that. That was why they took the Gaza Strip, all the coastal regions next to the Mediterranean. That area where the ancient Philistines lived, which Israel had never been able to conquer, but in 1967 they took that land in a short order of time.) (8) In that day shall the LORD defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the house of David shall be as God, as the angel of the LORD before them.” We see in Zephaniah 2, how those ancient cities would be a place for flocks of sheep to lie down. Arabs have been there for decades, they have sheep, but that does not fulfill this prophecy. It is only when that area belongs to the tribe of Judah, that the livestock that is spoken of for that place will become a fulfilled reality. If Israel was to give up the land, all that they took, it renders Israel completely incapable of launching a large livestock breeding program, because she will not have enough agricultural area for it. The Gaza Strip is a very fertile area for agriculture. It is like southern California, palm trees, citrus, bananas, and all kinds of stuff. There is no way this Oslo Accord can fulfill this scripture we have been looking at. Let us see what it continues to say. “He shall establish the tents of Judah first.” The purpose of that is that the glory of the house of David be established first. When He speaks of the house of David, who is HE talking about? He is talking about the Jews that are scattered somewhere through the earth, basically in Russia, who know by their own heritage that they are of the lineage of the house of David. Keep in mind, David was of the tribe of Judah. So the point is, the area of Judah was for the basic tribe, but in ancient times when King David and his army invaded this ancient Jebusite city, he took it. From then on this ancient Jebusite city began to be the place where many of David’s relatives, his family, as well as those who were close kin to him, began to come and settle in and around. In fact David had a palace built for himself there. That is why later on Jerusalem was called the city of David. He is the one that took it. He is the one that rehabilitated it to be the city of his God, because it is at Jerusalem, which is built on Mt. Zion, the place God revealed to David, where the temple was to be built, establishing that this is where He would reveal His name. Therefore for many centuries it was referred to as the city of David, but in its geographical identity it is the city of Jerusalem which should be the capital of the nation of Israel. In this verse He says He will establish the tents of Judah, the dwelling places. That is why after the Six Day War Israel set about reclaiming the land they had taken. They began to go into isolated, desolate villages of ancient times and reinstate them to a useful purpose. Here went the bull dozers clearing away the rubbish, the stone and rock that spoke of desolation. New houses and new villages began to spring up and these areas looked like something for the first time in a long time, but now we find the world in general is trying to please the Palestinians by saying, Stop this building, stop this building: You have no right to do this. That is why Israel wants to build new sections in the old city of Jerusalem. It is really their process and their way of renovating the old city, getting rid of all those ancient, run down buildings that only rats would live in. God wanted Judah to have this territory first. He wants the tribe to be already in their habitations, so that when He does deal with Jerusalem in its proper time, that will be for the house of David, David’s lineage. They are also the tribe of Judah, but they are just waiting to come and live in Jerusalem. The reason this is worded like this, is because of what He saw out ahead. For example, I remember years ago the city cousins used to make fun of the country cousins because we did not have running water, bathrooms, and electric lights and all of that. They would ask, Where do you get milk? Take them to the barn and show them where we got our milk and what did we hear? Ugh. They could barely stand the thought. Well, where do you get yours? We just go to the store and get ours. That is about as far as it ever went. It goes to show right here, God could already see how these people that would come, in their proper time, strictly to dwell in Jerusalem, would come with a feeling of excitement, knowing that God is doing something on their part, but not ready to face the real challenge, so God knowing, if He did not settle the basic tribe first, it could lead to confrontation: That is why He chose to do it like this. He took security against the city cousins belittling the country cousins. How many understand the point? He will settle the dwellings of the basic tribe first, then HE will save Jerusalem for those that are to come strictly to live in the city. When you begin to read this and all of this begins to stand out with a true meaning as it is right here, there is no way you are going to get this Oslo Accord to fit in here in any way. In the first place, it was not even drawn up to include Jerusalem being dealt with. Therefore when it is a proven fact that this does not settle the peace, then this argument is going to pass to the U.N. body. Then Jerusalem becomes a burdensome stone for the U.N. diplomats. I hope this stone drops on their feet. That is already settled in the word of God: All that burden themselves with it is facing a sudden destruction. The U.N. will go down quicker than the Russian perimeter did. Why? Because it is in the way of God’s word being fulfilled. I am glad God gave me the dream of all those passages of scriptures and allowed me to understand where they fit into the overall picture of His dealings with the Jews. I did not see the picture in its fullness, I could just see certain prophecies in the lineup. I called it windows of prophecy. At that time, I did not see each one of these little ones, how it fit in. That is God’s way of showing a few people that are looked upon as nothing, that this is the way it is going to be. Who? You? Yes! Why you? Just like in the first advent of Jesus Christ, Judaism as a whole was as blind as a bat. When the early disciples tried to talk to those Jewish clergymen, the disciples were looked upon as a bunch of ignorant fanatics, now knowing what they were doing. Alright, so when the Lord establishes the dwellings of Judah, He will do it in a time when He shows His miraculous working power in the Middle East. The whole nation gets to rejoice. Nobody gets to laud themselves above the others. Basically, when you read all of this through, as God establishes them, He confirms them, He restores to them preeminence in all the land that He has promised them, so notice what the 10th verse leads to. “And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications.” That takes you to the 11th chapter of Revelation, to the two prophets. Where do they prophecy? In the streets of Jerusalem. I want to say to the New World Order preachers, When those two prophets walk the streets of Jerusalem and prophesy for 3 ½ years or a thousand two hundred and threescore days, they are not prophesying to Arabs, they are prophesying to Jews. God has already cleared the streets, cleared the buildings and has taken those Arabs back over to the other side of the Jordan. Those that survive the conflict will get a free ride. That is all God will give them. As He is bringing people back to inhabit the land of their heritage, He is going to say to these Arabs, You have to go back home, where your ancestors came from. That is the way it ought to be, but the world cannot see it that way. Nevertheless believers can see by these scriptures, how God’s word says it is going to be. When we go to verse 8, here is the analysis of it, how once the city has been established, so it is all Jewish, and the people are coming home that are of the lineage of David, it is then, that the people of Israel can begin to say, The Lord will defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem. He will not defend it when it is inhabited by Arabs. He will defend it when it is inhabited by Jews. “And he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the house of David shall be as God.” This goes to show the theocracy of how the attention and respect will work. Now I would like to take you to Isaiah 60. This is a scripture I want to show you, because there is no way a New World Order can be in power when this scripture starts being fulfilled. Notice how it starts out. “Arise, shine; for thy light is come, (talking to Israel) and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee.” The reason for that is this, At this time Numbers 24 has been fulfilled. Israel has licked those nations. She has taken possession of her land beyond the Jordan River. She has overcome everything from Egypt to the Euphrates. Furthermore she will have done it in such a manner that all will know that God was with Israel on the battlefield. This assures that the glory of God will be recognized by Israel. It is God’s way of causing Israel to wake up and realize, I am for you, I am restoring you, and now I am going to send you your prophets. Notice as we read this scripture, we read it in the light of what we know about. (Revelation 11) This is found in Isaiah 60:1-3 “Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee. For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, (This is referring to spiritual darkness: It is not talking about sunlight, because spiritual darkness will cover the earth. Only God knows just how bad it will be. Just look at the spiritual darkness that hovers over our nation even today.) And gross darkness the people: (That is why you hear, Don’t talk to me about this God you people believe in. That is why for a short period of time before the week of Daniel hits, God is compelled to display His power in the Middle East for a little span of time. It is His way of accomplishing His purpose: He is able to put in the heart and mind of some mortal people how to escape that trend and not be caught up in that flow of unbelief.) But the Lord shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.” If the New World Order is in power, how could this ever come to pass? The New World Order is not going to be in favor of such a thing. You everyone know that already. The New World Order has in mind to force everybody into a New World Order religion, into a situation where no one would be allowed to carry out any kind of worship according to their own faith. We have got to read it like it is written in the Bible, and believe that all of this is going to come about just like the Bible says it will. This is why I have to say, When Israel fulfills what is prophesied in Numbers 24, it is right in that same era of time that God slaps that U.N. body and tears it to pieces. From then on, it will be Europe, that God will be looking at. There, in Europe, is the real beast that was and is not and yet is. That is the beast many of you preachers have ignored. It is then, that the pope of Rome will become the world’s mediator: and God will give certain things into his hands for just a short period of time. That was what ruled Europe for a thousand years in the Dark Ages, that same beast. Well what does it mean, “The Gentiles shall come to thy light?” That does not mean all nations will literally flow to it, but in that era of time, there is going to be many Gentiles come to recognize what God has done for Israel; and because of that, they will want to contribute something toward what Israel is interested in. Let us just watch these next few verses. If the New World Order is in power they will cut off the flow of any kind of financial aid to the nation of Israel. They will starve it into submission, and that is contrary to the word of God. “And kings to the brightness of thy rising. Lift up thine eyes round about, and see: all they gather themselves together, they come to thee: thy sons shall come from far.” There are still many Jews in Russia, South America, Canada, United States, and scattered throughout the various European nations of the world. When they begin to hear how their people in Israel are fighting this war, it will cause them to do some serious thinking. God will bestow His glory and power upon the battlefield on behalf of Israel. Do not try to tell me God does not have a way to open people’s eyes. I can just see those Jews, sitting in different areas of the world, and hear them say, I want to go back to my homeland, and that is exactly what they will do, go back. When you read the 10th chapter of Zechariah, it speaks of this last day flow of immigrants back to that land. They will come into the land of Lebanon and Gilead. That is across the river. That is yet to be. They will say, The place is too narrow. They will come with such force, there is no place to house them. That is what that means. As we see this glorious period coming for Israel, keep in mind, it speaks of the immigrants to come here in this 4th verse, then the word of God promises Israel this. “Then thou (Israel) shall see, and flow together, and thine heart shall fear, and be enlarged; (Oh my, you New World Order advocates, you do not even know the Bible you use.) because the abundance of the sea shall be converted unto thee, (that is not talking about spiritual conversion of people, it is material substance for the rebuilding of whatever Israel needs to get that city ready, and the temple for this period of time right here. That is why we have to have that little short interval before then.) the forces of the Gentiles shall come unto thee.” For what purpose? The building of the temple and the city, starts in verse 6. Here they come from Saudi Arabia. Now New World Order advocates, at what time, what took place in your New World Order setup that causes Saudi Arabia to transport gold and incense to Israel? You know good and well as long as they remain to be Moslem that is an impossibility. “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 show 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.” They will build the temple. That is exactly why the apostle John in the book of Revelation, chapter 11, as he was allowed to look at this period of time, was given a reed and told by the angel, “Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein. (2) But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months. (3) And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. The court which is outside the temple, because it is given unto the Gentiles and it and the holy city shall they tread under foot for forty and two months. All that goes to show that in the beginning of the week, as the two prophets appear, time coincides, and Israel has already fought that miracle war. Ezekiel 38 has been the last episode. God is judging Russia. What an earth shaking, catastrophic thing, that is going to be. The world has made a lot of modern weapons of warfare to kill, but let God get actively involved in this mess and He will spit at the F-16's and all the rest of them. He will show you how helpless all this manmade stuff is when His power goes to work. It says in Ezekiel 38, I will rain on him an overflowing rain and great hail. God has an ice maker. When it rains so hard you cannot see five feet in front of you, you are not going to be combing your hair and brushing your teeth, you are going to be so occupied trying to stay out of the deluge of such a downpour, that is all you will have time for. God will use the elements of nature to terrorize and pulverize and shake the inhabitants of the earth. That will not be going on all over the planet, but in the land of Israel where God brings this Russian nation, who through all their scientific achievement have laughed God to scorn, that will be the picture. He has already taken away their kingdom, and now He is going to take away their pride. No, it will not be Armageddon yet, when that is done, it is the last war to be fought just before the week sets in. It is going to be a war that will shock Europe and make Europe realize, He has brought us to the brink of catastrophic world developments. These things ought to wake up some people I say to God tonight, Lord, you are the God that loves your people, you have a few people down here on this earth that are not well thought of by some, and others do not even know we exist, but I am so thankful I am one of them. With this miserable bunch of politicians and all this social conflict we have going on today, you can be alive and well today, but tomorrow they can have you strung up in some kind of legal mess that turns your life upside down, simply because the devil can tell a lie on you and you will not even know where you are until you are already knee deep in the thing.


THE SONS OF STRANGERS SHALL BUILD UP THY WALLS


In Isaiah 60:10, we find this next scripture. “And the sons of strangers shall build up thy walls, and their kings shall minister unto thee: for in my wrath I smote thee, but in my favor have I had mercy on thee.” I am going to bring in some others things before we get into the actual building process of the Jewish temple. When we get into the building process of the temple and the old city itself, I read in here, that the sons of strangers, notice the language, sons of strangers, shall build up thy walls. That is people of nations that in their ancient past have never regarded Israel as being a people important enough to be associated with. The sons of strangers takes in a certain number from a large scope of humanity. Think of all the Orients, half way around the globe, when they look through the TV tube and have to see what God has done in the Middle East, do not tell me young men who have been Hindus, Buddhists, Shinto’s, and all of that, will not be affected. God is going to make them look at that tube and see a real God in action. God can strip a man of his man-made religion, when he is made to see the true God displaying mighty works right before his very eyes. Not only that, but notice this, Thine enemies shall come and bow at thy feet. What about all those skins heads we see out here today? I was reading in the Jerusalem Post, how in Europe, they published a document belittling the Jews that were martyred in WW2. Some Jewish official tried to find out the source of the printing, but as I read that I thought, You of the nation, you who would laugh, you who would criticize today, you young upstarts who stick your chest out, shave your head and strut around looking like the devil, God has your number. He will bring you thousands of miles to make you bow at the foot of a Jew. These are things this world is going to have to get ready to accept. Not for a hundred years, but for a little short period of time. When God starts turning the pages, and starts fulfilling these little prophecies, it will not take Him forever to get done, what He wants done. There is a certain way I want to bring this message to an end, in order to make the total picture really stand out. In all these prophecies we have been looking at, there is a certain verse that sticks out so vividly. There is no way Israel’s enemies would ever bow at their feet, or strangers ever help build up their walls, if we are made to live under this New World Order that is in the making. We have heard this, Rabin was told to stop advocating great Israel, which means Israel being restored to all the land, and just be content to live and let bygones be bygones. Does that sound sweet? That sounds so hypocritical, it is a pitiful shame for anyone to be so scripturally blind. That is our world leaders today. That is the way they look at the future. I am so glad God has their number. I see their day, the smart, well educated scientists had it all figured out, but there is a sovereign God watching every move they make, and He is just giving them enough rope to hang themselves with, while He waits for the proper time to wrap up and tie up all the loose ends. Do not tell me their heads are not going to swim when God turns Israel loose. When the children of Israel were marching around Jericho, that set a type. On the seventh day, they went seven times around. That set a perfect type. When seven church ages have full come to a close, Israel is coming back into the land in full force, to be completely restored to their old estates. Just as God brought the mightiest fortified city down, it means the world with all their military and scientific might, God will bring it to naught as He exalts Israel and restores her to her land, according to the promises of His book. Right now we look silly in the eyes of Dr. So and So, and Professor This and That, but our day is coming. What a day that will be! All this Oslo Accord jargon, (That is what it actually amounts to) will one day be as worthless as the paper it is printed on.     THIS IS A LIVING BOOK, A BOOK, THAT TALKS TO YOU. IT LAYS OUT A BEAUTIFUL PICTURE FOR ALL OF US TO BE GUIDED BY AS TIME RUNS OUT FOR GENTILES.


LOOKING AT TIME FROM 1963 - UNTIL NOW


I want to direct our thinking from 1963 until this present time, that we may see a breakdown of those years. God brought forth the revelation of six seals in 1963. We are now here, in this year of time, looking back. If you have looked at the chart over there on the wall, you know that from now on until the week of Daniel starts, there are very few years left. That is one thing we know for sure. That chart is based upon the assumption that our present calendar time is correct. I have an article taken from Newsweek about three or four weeks ago, wherein there is a writer claiming the Bible is off time, and saying that it could be as much as five years out of date, so naturally that leaves you wondering what actually is right. The point is this though, Even if it is five years off, it is still going to be too soon for a lot of people. Regardless of all of that though, our aim is to try to give us a better look at the Bible. When we read the prophecies that are yet to be fulfilled we have to ask ourselves, Is this right, or are our politicians right? To me the answer is very easy: I will always stick with the word of God, regardless of what our politicians are saying. When you ask, Are these prophecies correct? You just have to settle in your heart what you want to put your confidence in. Does God mean what He says in these prophecies? I say, Yes HE does, but it is very strange, that many preachers are saying things that are inconsistent with how these prophecies lay things out. Yes, they go to the Thessalonian letters, where it speaks about the man of sin, the son of perdition, and they go to Daniel 9:27, a covenant is to be made and he will break the covenant, but they are forever jumping to conclusions as to what the covenant is. That is why we brought in what we did about the Oslo Accord. There is not one thing in that Oslo Accord that would even sanction or allow Israel to really build the temple. The Oslo Accord gives no place where it would allow Israel to remove the Palestinian Arabs out of the old city and thereby fulfill Isaiah 49. It really surprises me how that these prophetic teachers of our day, that have the same Bible I do, can look at two or three prophecies and use that as their basis and all the others, they treat as totally irrelevant. Therefore for the sake of the listener on audio tape and the viewer on video, I want to ask some questions. If you are going to listen to the New World Order preachers, then you are going to have to stop reading your Bible and just hope it comes out alright. On the other hand, if you are going to put confidence in your Bible, then you must come to a conclusion that somewhere up the line between now and the time of the rapture, between here and there on our chart, this New World Order is going to be completely disintegrated. I say, When God does strike it, it will collapse in less time than the Russian empire did, with Communism and all her block countries she had in the Warsaw pact. Having said that, let us now turn to Micah 7. Here is a prophecy you hardly ever hear any of those fellows read, leaving the impression this could have been fulfilled somewhere else in time. There is a key verse though, and that is verse 11. “In the day that thy walls are to be built, in that day shall the decree be far removed.” What decree is he talking about? The word decree means an official order, a decree of fate which will find in Deuteronomy 28. Mark that down. In Deuteronomy 28, they had not yet crossed over into the promised land, but God wrote this decree, that if Israel, as long as she walked in observance to His word and statues, He would bless them and they would prosper, but if for any reason they forsook His laws and His ways, the decree of what would happen is already in Deuteronomy 28. At the beginning of the siege of Jerusalem by the Babylonians, it began the fulfillment of that terrible fate, which has been going on for twenty five hundred years. However, right here, God says that decree will be done away. “In that day also he shall come even to thee from Assyria, and from the fortified cities, (he, is talking about how the Jew will return from various places of ancient time.) and from the fortified cities, and from the fortress even to the river, and from sea to sea, and from mountain to mountain.” Verse 13 shows as something to come later, even before there had become such a mass immigration of Arabs into the land. “Notwithstanding (or however) the land shall be desolate because of them that dwell therein, for the fruit of their doings.” This tells us there would come a period of time when the Jews, according to the decree, would be scattered to the ends of the earth, and that these people would filter in through decades and centuries of time. When they did, they would absolutely occupy the land, but for some reason the land would become a wilderness, a desolate looking place, which came about. It seems as though they were goat herders, and sheep herders. Very little agriculture went on. God wanted the land to rest, but to the outside world it looked desolate. This lets us know, that even back that far, God was looking upon those Arabs as not really an enjoyable sight to look at. Verse 14 is a promise, looking at certain geographical areas of what God has His mind on by bringing the people back. “Feed thy people with thy rod, the flock of thine heritage, which dwell solitarily in the wood, in the midst of Carmel: let them feed in Bashan and Gilead.” If we had a map of the world up here, you would see that Gilead is across the Jordan River over in northern Jordan, and the Jews have not yet done anything there. “As in the days of old.” That is a promise that there is going to come a time the Jews are going to be given back all this land so that it will be populated by Jews. Just as they are to dwell, eat, and feast in Bashan, so will they in Gilead. That does not give King Hussein much to look forward to. I have to say, according to prophecy, that his days are short. Notice as we continue, “According to the days,” the word according means, when you read in Exodus of how God miraculously brought Israel through the wilderness, compare that to this period of time, when you see how miraculously He brought them, then you look at this. “According to the days of thy coming out of the land of Egypt will I show unto him (Israel) marvelous things.” Now I ask the New World Order supporters, those who want to uphold and preach that, at what time in the duration of the New World Order could this be a fact? Do you even think that the New World Order, knowing what it has on its agenda, will even give way anywhere to Israel, for them to do the things that are prophesied here? If so, what is she doing it for? What is to be accomplished in the end of it? Is the present land of Israel just to remain divided? No. When we read this, please keep in mind that Numbers 24, was a prophecy that Balaam told to Balak, saying, Come here, I will show you what these people will do to your people in the later days. Of course the later days spoken of there, are the days we are living in right now. As we get closer to the time of Christ’s return, these days are going to become more profound. As each day passes away without the fulfilling of this, then it means the time for it to be fulfilled gets shorter. It lets us know that the politicians of our present world systems, as they try their best to lay out the platform of this new world system, have only a short time to even try to initiate it. I want to say at this time, God knows all about this. I believe He is watching ever move every politician makes. There is no doubt when we go to Zechariah 12, that is when HE said, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling to them round about, that HE was speaking of the Arabs in the land. They are the ones contesting the Jews for equal representation, and equal possession. There is no way a New World Order will allow Israel, if they stay intact and in power, to fulfill what the Bible says Israel is to do. We can say, Then why is Israel to do this? Because when we go to Jerusalem and see how it will become a cup of trembling to the Arabs, then it comes to the next verse, and He will make Jerusalem a burdensome stone to all them that become occupied therewith. And though all the nations of the earth be gathered together against Jerusalem, that is not militarily. This is not the battle of Armageddon. This is no doubt a New World Order agenda trying to stick their nose in and tell Israel, You cannot do that. That is when God says, Though all the nations of the earth be gathered together against it, (diplomatically) I will break them to pieces. He never promised to break the nations to pieces when they come to Armageddon. They will wallow in blood, because the blood will flow to the bridle of a horse. He never spoke specifically that He would destroy any particular nation, but they are going to fight a terrible conflict at Armageddon. It is the Lord’s way of giving the nations of the earth a taste of their own medicine, saying to them, You have fought and fought and fought and killed your fellow man for centuries: Now I will let you kill and kill and kill until you sink in your own blood. Remember though, there is no particular nation completely annihilated, because from that scene, you find them thinking they have the power to hinder the Lord Jesus Christ as He is coming from heaven with His armies. At that time, the beast and kings of the earth are gathered to make war against Him, so we come right back to this, This United Nations New World Order thing has only a short span of time left. There is no doubt when the time is just right, Jerusalem is going to become a hot potato and the Arabs and Jews are going to be mixing it up big time. When it has absolutely reached the point in time that God sees it is time for this scripture to be fulfilled, I say to you, The U.N. will definitely try to get into the melee, into the conflict, and try to compel Israel to listen to them, but to no avail. That marks the time for God to get more actively into it. When you read in the book of Judges, what God did to many of Israel’s enemies, you will see. He confused their thinking. He turned brother against brother and so forth. The Midianites fought against he Midianites in the dark, killing one another. When He confuses them, as it said in Zechariah 12, “In that day I will smite the rider of the horse with madness.” We all know that warfare of our day is not fought on horse back. They use horse power instead. We just have to realize that behind every instrument of warfare there is the mentality of mankind. Whatever weapons there are, there is a human mind behind it somewhere. When God confuses them and turns their thinking to madness, then total confusion follows. That is what the world will have to see. I want to say to those that have preached a New World Order, When you look at it from the political standpoint the way things are going today, yes, there is in the making, according to the politicians of the earth, a New World Order system. No one denies that. However I deny that the New World Order will ever be able to change the continuity of the Bible, which is the word of God. I want you to know, and be fully persuaded, that the Bible changes the final picture concerning all of that. I have to say once again, All of man’s big ideas for a world wide system of government is headed for desolation, confusion and total failure. When God starts confusing leaders who are trying to make a common decision, and in a unanimous way try to decide what to do with a certain issue, they are all going to be at each other’s throats. They are going to get so angry with each other that they will not be able to agree on anything. When God breaks something up, He does it right. Does it leave nations completely ruined? No. It just means the leadership is now being changed to do something else, and that will set the stage for Europe, which is already united, to fulfill the role the Bible says they will fulfill, just like it pictures it in Revelation 13. That brings us back to Micah. I believe the marvelous things that scripture speaks of, are going to be miraculous events and things in the display of God’s power with the Israelis, as they fulfill Numbers 24, where it says, “And they shall do valiantly” which is a word that describes victory, great feats on the field of battle. Like where one shall put so many to flight. This miraculous era, though short it will be, it will be seen from one end of the earth to the other. God has a reason for that, and we are going to see why as we continue on. When the media are compelled to begin to look to the Middle East, and they become startled from hour to hour as they try to keep up with the events and development of things that will be taking place, it is absolutely going to put such tremendous pressure on them, some of those commentators are not going to be able to keep up with it. God is going to make them project the picture so the whole world will see it. There is no way they can cover up and try to turn it to a left or right issue. This is going to be seen just like it is, to the ends of the earth. The nations shall see all of it. If such a thing as this would have happened in WW1, it would have been a long time before nations not related to Europe could have seen in reality what went on out there on the fields of battle in Europe, simply because of very slow means of communication. Since this is a prophecy written thousands of years ago, it could see down through the scope of time, and nations shall see it, not six months later, but instantly. The TV cameras are on the field of battle, mounted on tanks, mounted in airplanes and any other place that captures events as they are taking place. “The nations shall see and be confounded (confused) at all their might: they shall lay their hand upon their mouth.” That is a description of a person that has suddenly been terribly surprised. How many times have you seen that done, when someone thought things were going to go a certain way, then, all of a sudden it is turned and there is a shocking expression of surprises on their face? The event has so startled them they shall lay their hand upon their mouth. “And their ears shall be deaf. They shall lick the dust like a serpent.”  In this day of crooked, low down politicians who have sold their national subjects to the slaughter block, or to a life of poverty, you will see a lot of that. Back in the early 1980's, when we were trying to help fight the Contras in Latin America, one morning they showed the relief food that was being sent in, which was grain, to Nicaragua, to be ground into flower or meal for the people. One News person down there, showed how some of this grain that was supposed to be given to the poor people, was stacked in the garage of one of the politicians down there. Just at the outer perimeter of the city he had a hog farm. He was feeding that grain to those hogs. This is just a small description of the corruption and crookedness that takes place from nation to nation. Yet those politicians are able to say to the public, We are sending relief. It is only a way to bid the politicians. It is the poor people that need it, not the politicians. They shall lick dust like a serpent. We can begin to understand who some of those people are. When God does something, He does it right. “They shall move out of their holes like worms of the earth: they shall be afraid of the Lord our God.” I have to say, as we try to break this down a little more, God has a reason for a short period of time, just before the week of Daniel sets in, to do mankind that way. This is when He preserves a small element of mortal human flesh from nation to nation, to be given a chance to look at the right thing and have a short time to do it in. Then through this He gets glory, He gets recognized, not by people in the western world, but from the ends of this earth. God is going to be recognized as the supreme, eternal God, who is almighty and all powerful. He is not going to famish just one religion: He is going to deal likewise with all religions. Some of these preachers think He is going to do that in the Millennium. No. He will do it before the Millennium, because there will not be one pagan allowed to pass into the Millennium. Anyone who passes into the Millennium, will have already been turned to recognize that there are not dozens of Gods, but there is only one true God, the God of Israel. “They shall be afraid of the Lord our God, and shall fear because of thee.” How many days this conflict in the Middle East will last, no one but God knows: We just know it will be of a short duration, and from Egypt on through Iraq, Syria, Jordan, and all of those places that enter into this, Israel will have been supreme. That is when you go to Isaiah 19, to read of the results of all of this.


SOME RESULTS OF THE GREAT SHAKING


It says, in Isaiah 19, beginning with verse 16, “In that day shall Egypt be like unto women: and it shall be afraid and fear because of the shaking of the hand of the LORD of hosts, which He shaketh over it. (17) And the land of Judah shall be a terror unto Egypt, every one that maketh mention thereof shall be afraid in himself, because of the counsel of the LORD of hosts, which He hath determined against it. (18) In that day shall five cities in the land of Egypt speak the language of Canaan, and swear to the LORD of hosts; one shall be called, The city of destruction. (19) In that day shall there be an altar to the LORD in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar at the border thereof to the LORD.” Why will Egypt become like women, afraid. Because Judah shall be a terror unto them round about. That is the Arab Moslem world that has boasted and made threats against the Jews through the years. For centuries they have been so militant and so sure of achieving what they are determined to accomplish, but God will put a sudden end to all of that kind of feelings. IN ancient times, wherever they went, they desecrated the Christian faith, beheaded the Christians by the thousands, bathed the land in blood and rejoiced over it. Now we are approaching the time when God is going to show the whole world what a sovereign God can do, and allow some to recognize that HE has been longsuffering toward those that have opposed Him. With this in mind, we can see that Egypt shall be afraid because of the shaking of the hand of God over her. Did you ever see a picture of a man in authority, shake his hand and point his finger, Young man, you have had it? Yes, Egypt shall fear. Following that miraculous display of God’s presence and power in the Middle East, when Israel is enabled to do all that these scriptures say she will do, and following right on through the remaining time left, and then on into the Millennium, this is going to fearfully affect the Egyptian people. Going on toward, and into the Millennium, which takes us on through this span of time right here, (pointing to chart) even through the week of Daniel on over here, five cities in that day, which means that period of time, will speak the language of Canaan. From that fearful shaking, that fearful defeat, when those masses of people have been under Moslem religion, proclaiming, Allah is our god! They will suddenly make a change. Right now, they are boasting of what they will do to the Jews, but wait until God reverses their thinking and watch them go the other way. What we are talking about will not take six years to bring about these results: It will be just as miraculous as the Six Day War of 1967. It will all be over with, just as fast as those tanks can go from place to place, and those planes can fly from spot to spot. For once, across the whole Middle East, from the land of Mesopotamia, between the two rivers, and on to the Nile River, there will not be one square mile that has not seen the power of God on display. Following that display of God’s power, Jews from all over the world that have never yet thought about going back to their homeland, will suddenly have a great desire to go home, back to the land of their forefathers. There are hundreds, even thousands in Russia yet, also South America, and scattered throughout Asia. Somewhere there is that remnant of the house of David, that is yet to return. We know that David was of the tribe of Judah, but from within the tribe of Judah there was a certain family structure that was David’s descendants. They are waiting to come back and occupy Jerusalem. This puts the 10th chapter of Zechariah right before your eyes. When the Middle East can be seen being lit up with this miraculous display of God’s power, these Jews from the various nations of the earth, as they watch the development, will say, I want to go now, because I know God is waiting for us. With that in mind, let us turn to Isaiah 60. As I read this, keep Isaiah 49 in your mind. We got to verse 6 earlier, so let us continue on from there. We see here, the time has come that Israel is going to rise to preeminence. God has lifted the decree. The Middle East has been lit up with the presence of God. Muslimism has been defeated. The Arab spirit has been turned to the God of Abraham. After all, they are descendants of Abraham, through another line. I want to ask the question to people who have allowed their minds to be affected by this New World Order agenda. Could you tell me, if the New World Order agenda is never torn to pieces, by what means, and at what time can Saudi Arabia fulfill what we are about to read? Read it carefully. As long as Saudi Arabia and Jordan, Egypt, and all that is still Moslem, it is an impossibility for any of those nations to contribute one dime to the fulfillment of Micah 7, and to this. Try it now. You can talk all you want to, but when that is over, that is why God has to do it, and He will do it. Here they come, the multitude of camels. I have to say it is true, two thousand years ago, yes, great camel caravans crossed the desert sands with their commerce, but you know the trade routes are not carried on by camels anymore. NO. Here comes instead, the diesel powered semi trucks. They can haul what it would take twenty, thirty, or forty camels to carry. Nevertheless, transpose the picture from camels to large trucks. “The multitudes of camels (or trucks) shall cover thee, the dromedaries of Midian and Ephah, all they from Sheba (This is the area of Saudi Arabia) shall come: they shall bring gold and incense; and they shall show forth the praises of the Lord.” We know what the gold is for. It is absolutely designated to decorate something. “All the flocks of Kedar (That is another of the sons of Abraham) shall be gathered together unto thee, (This is talking about livestock, especially lambs, because of the fact that at the present time Israel has no animal breeding program to start animal sacrifice when the sacrificial altar is built. Oh I just have to say this, What is the animal rights activist going to do in that day, when hundreds and hundreds of these animals are being driven by those Arabs to Israel, to be given for sacrifice by the Jews?) The rams of Nebaioth (one of the sons of Ishmael in southern Jordan) shall minister unto thee: they shall come up with acceptance on mind altar, (that tells us there is going to be animals brought out of that southern country of Jordan from those various Bedouin people.) and I will glorify the house of my glory. (Now he is talking about the temple.) Who are these that fly as a cloud, and as the doves to their windows? (They did not know what an airplane was when that was written, but today they come in on the wings of eagles. Years ago when Israel was made a state, the United States furnished the cargo planes, out of the country of Yemen, they came in there and landed. The instructors told them, come and get on the plane, they were afraid to get on. They were told, this is the eagles, that have come to get you and take you home. Oh I have to say, The Bible is so precise, so accurate, and so beautiful.) Surely the isles shall wait for me, and the ships of Tarshish first, to bring thy sons from far, (This lets you know, even nations that are called by their ancient name are going to want to volunteer every transportation means to help these Jews quickly get back home, simply because they have been awakened to the reality that God is on the scene, and that He wants them back there, and He wants it done in a few months of time.) 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.” Now the decree is gone, God is lifting Israel up. He has showed His power and the world is going to be able, for a short period of time, to have an opportunity to look at it and rejoice in it. Let me say this, to you who think this sounds fantastic, To one element of people it is fantastic, but it is supposed to be that way. As for the unbelievers, it only hardens their heart’s ever so much more. The same thing happened in Egypt 3500 years ago. One minute Pharaoh said, Go on, go home. After another night’s sleep, he was back with that old hardened heart again. Verse 10 tells us this, “And the sons of strangers (This means nations of people, who in former time knew very little about Israel, or had any diplomatic or any kind of material trade or dealings with them, therefore Israel was never recognized by those people. They are considered stranger.) shall build up thy walls.” What happens to cause something like that? That should let you know, however long that miraculous display of God’s power in the Middle East lasts, using the military might of Israel, and magnifying it many times over to accomplish this great victorious feat, people to the ends of the earth, through the TV tube, has had the opportunity to sit with their mouth open in amazement. Imagine a Buddhist looking at something like that. Do not tell me he is still going to say, Buddha, you are still my god. Nor the Hindu. This is why Zephaniah 2 says this, And in that day he will famish all the gods of the earth. Why? This great change is not fulfilled by a few western nations who have always known Israel. This is a picture of a universal development. I am not telling you that every nation on the face of the earth will participate, but this is a universal picture. When it says and the sons of strangers, this literally means that various one’s from various countries will suddenly have a great desire to go to Israel and help them. We know things today are done with modern equipment, so there is going to be construction engineers from various countries who have profession engineers that have the knowledge of building all kinds of structures, that are going to want to come to this city and help out. Knowing why God has done this, they are going to want to come and devote their expertise, as well as their own equipment to accomplish this great feat in a short order of time. I tell you saints, When God does something, He does it right. This is one thing He wants done, to show the world, I am alive, I am healthy, I am well, I still have my right mind, my word is still true, and there are a few of you people down there that have ears to hear what I am saying. It is going to be beautiful for some people, but it is going to cause a lot of politicians to go to bed with indigestion, confused minds and many questions. The sons of strangers shall build up thy walls. Walls, plural, does not necessarily mean the walls of the temple. It is referring here to the reconstructing of the old city. That is why when you go to the 11th chapter of Revelation, you find that the angel told John, Take a reed and measure the temple and the walls and those that worship therein, but the court without, leave out. We know this, That is why Benjamin Netanyahu has been pushing this rebuilding in certain outlying localities of the old city. It is literally fulfilling prophecy. Just outside the old walls in ancient times, there were certain communities, they know that has to be rebuilt. As the scripture says, and thou shall rebuild the ruined places, and the desolate places that at one time had nothing, shall be inhabited. So with this in mind, I want to say to the critic, You just have to understand that all of this is fulfilling scriptures. You can go ahead and play with the United Nations agenda, but when it comes time for this to be a reality, the United Nations agenda is going to be a lost cause. Now I will say at this time, There is no doubt in my mind, that this country of America, because of her part in various things, and because of our political ideas, is absolutely going to go under some kind of terrible uprising. I say this to our politicians, You have played with time, and you have played with ideas, but your vision is contrary to God’s word, so your great plans have been made in vain. I remember years ago, hearing old timers say concerning certain things, You are just breeding a scab. Which means, You are going to get hurt. You are going to be scarred. It would not surprise me, if at the time Israel is being glorified in the Middle East, this country could be going through a terrible catastrophic political uprising. We have too many professors, too many politicians, that wanted to make America a multi cultural nation. I am not a racist. It was God Himself who set the bounds of their habitation, but it is carnal man who wants to change the picture. Go ahead and change it, and you will reap the results. America, of all the nations of the earth, that at one time has known peace in the streets and tranquility in the homes, has allowed political minds with atheistic beliefs to turn America into a hell hole. God knows exactly how to wash it and clean it up. I will not endeavor to describe everything that may come as a result of all of this, but when God puts America in the tub of a revolution, He will use sandpaper, wire brushes and very strong soap to clean her up. When He gets through, a lot of this filth, this nonsense is going to go down the drain. Let us now read verse 11. We are still in Isaiah, chapter 60. This chapter really gives us a picture to meditate upon. “Therefore thy gates shall be open continually; they shall not be shut day nor night; that men may bring unto thee the forces of the Gentiles,  (This is not military forces, this is material substance.) and that their kings may be brought.” This tells us there is some leaders of nations that are going to respond as well as others. IT is how God shows Himself in such a miraculous way on behalf of Israel, that causes them to respond as they will. Now to those who still want to insist on a New World Order, tell me how can a New World Order survive this kind of setting? Notice the penalty for those who are still against Israel later on. Verse 12 says this, “For the nation and kingdom that will not serve thee (Israel) shall perish; yea, those nations shall be utterly wasted.” God will bankrupt their economies and leave them desolate. I say to everyone who hears this, God’s word is always right. “The glory of Lebanon shall come unto thee, (She is presently under that Moslem spirit along with Syria.) the fir tree, the pine tree, and the box together, to beautify the place of my sanctuary; (This is the second time it speaks of His sanctuary.) and I will make the place of my feet glorious.” With these verses fresh in our minds, let us now go to Haggai, chapter 2, which is dated about four hundred and some years before Christ. When that remnant of the Jews came back from Babylonian captivity, having been instructed by King Cyrus to go back and build the house to their God, Zechariah and Haggai were the two prophets on the scene. They set the type for what the two prophets of Revelation, chapter 11, will be doing in Israel later on, the prophets with the Moses and Elijah spirits that will be on the scene during the first half of the seventieth week of Daniel. Just as Haggai and Zechariah prophesied to that remnant in regards to the building of that temple and the restoring of the city, it has to go simultaneously. Back then, because of a lack of money, they only had a small amount of finances to work with, so that temple was very small. When it was dedicated, some of the old timers stood there weeping. As Haggai looked and saw the tears coming down the cheeks of those old men who had been carried away seventy years before that as little boys, he opened his mouth and began to prophesy. He said, The time will come when I will shake all nations. I assure you saints, This entire earth is moving fast toward a shaking they have never had before. We can say this, There have been shakings for the past number of years, as it changed the trend of things to make it move along the prophetic line, but when HE said, “Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land; And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the LORD of hosts.” Then the prophet spoke these words, (8) “The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, saith the LORD of hosts. (9) The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the LORD of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the LORD of hosts.” That is actually pointing to the Millennium, but you have to pass through all of this to reach that point of time. The world has yet to see what that latter house will look like. Here it is, right here, when God said, The gold and silver are mine, you have to realize that He is able to put it into the heart’s of mortal mankind to fulfill His will and purpose. We are going to show you exactly how God is going to get that silver and gold. He is not going to open up a gold mind somewhere. Take a good look at what Ted Turner has just done, pledging all that money to the United Nations. We have a few men like that scattered all over the face of this earth. He has been touched by this New World Order system. He just dedicated so many million dollars to the U.N., to be paid over the next ten years. Ted, God is going to get some of your money one of these days. This New World Order thing is not going to last ten more years. First off, he did not dedicate it to the financial existence of U.N., he dedicated it to the humanitarian side of their work. Wait until Ted has to see some of the glory of God. He has already put the rest of the rich on notice, but wait until God puts them on notice. That is how you have to look at these scriptures. Let us just watch, and see how this works. The nation shall not serve thee, God said, I will waste them and they will perish. He will drive them into bankruptcy. The glory of Lebanon is mentioned, and that tells you that out of Lebanon will come the cedar God needs for His building. High on the Lebanese mountain range, ten thousand feet above sea level, is an ancient forest of cedars. They turned it into a national park many years ago. They claim some of those cedars are five thousand years old. God wanted them to be kept back for this day and hour. When God shows His might and power in the Middle East, just as Lebanon contributed her portion in the days of Solomon, when he built that temple, again Lebanon will contribute her glory unto the building of this next temple, the decoration, the trim work and so forth, that this new temple be exactly what the Creator wants. (Verse 14) “The sons also of them that afflicted thee shall come bending unto thee; (All you skin heads, when God gets you by that bald head, get down on your knees, you who opened your mouth to say all those derogatory things about this people, now what do you think about them? Take a good look.) and all they that despised thee shall bow themselves down at the soles of thy feet; and they shall call thee, The city fo the Lord, the Zion of the Holy One of Israel.” The next verse speaks to the Jewish people who are going to live there. “Whereas thou hast been forsaken and hated, so that no man went through thee, I will make thee an eternal excellency, a joy of many generations.” That takes you on into the Millennium. Look at this next verse, and watch the language of it. “Thou (Israel) shalt also suck the milk of the Gentiles.” Yes Ted Turner has pledged to contribute all that money to the U.N. Was it because of a mandate of the government? Not at all. Something touched his heart. Well if something could touch his heart in that respect, do you not think God can touch other men’s hearts as well, for whatever purpose He may have? A lot of this is not going to be by a bill being passed by some congress or parliament. It is just that the whole world is made to look at this and see how it unfolds. Thousands of people from all over this planet are going to say, Now I know there is a God that is real because I have seen what He can do, and I want to participate and have a little part in restoring His people Israel. I say it again, When God does it, He does it right. Thou shall suck the milk of the Gentiles. Ted Turner and all the other wealthy people that were mentioned the other day, when they described the billions they have, or the millions they have, may get a chance to use some of their wealth for a purpose of God. “And shalt suck the breast of kings.”  Old King Faruk and all the other Faruks and those of the Saudi Arabia area, with no idea of how rich they really are, sitting over there in those desert countries with their billions in black gold, will get their chance also. They are among the richest nations in the world, but God has a way of pointing his finger and saying, I want some of that. “And thou shalt know that I the Lord am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob. For brass I will bring gold, (He is going to touch men’s hearts, their lives and their material assets. These mineral elements are going to be brought precisely on time. It is a freewill, gratis type thing. There will not have to be any bill introduced for a bunch of politicians to fuss over. It is done by the way God reaches out and touches the hearts of people. Businesses that deal in brass will no doubt say, I will make door knobs for whatever purpose, or whatever brass is needed.) and for iron I will bring silver, and for wood brass, and for stones iron: (That is why I say, The next temple will not have stone walls ever so thick, like the other ones: They will drive iron into the ground just like we build our commercial buildings today. It will go up as an iron framework. Then it will be fabricated on the outside with prefabricated stone. I believe most of us are familiar with the way huge buildings are constructed and finished in this day and hour. Since it is a small building it will not take years to complete all the work: IT will take just a few weeks. They will put that beautiful thing together in very short order and it will sparkle like a diamond, in a country that has been made fun of through all these years.) I will also make thy officers peace, and thine exactors righteousness. Violence shall no more be heard in thy land, wasting nor destruction within thy borders; but thou shalt call thy walls Salvation, and thy gates Praise. The sun shall be no more thy light by day; neither for brightness shall the moon give light unto thee: but the Lord shall be unto thee an everlasting light, and thy God thy glory.” Bro. Jackson: Does that mean the sun will shine no more? Does that mean the moon is not going to glow? No. In another scripture of Isaiah it says in that day the sun shall shine seven times brighter and the moon shall shine as bright as the noon day sun. It means this, this city does not have to depend necessarily on that light. It is the presence of God that is their light. Keep in mind, vegetation needs this sunlight. That is the way you have to look at it. There is everything in continuity in the Bible. Let us turn to Isaiah 49. Read the whole 49th chapter, because this is a prophecy that describes how Mt. Zion, the mountain on which the city is built, is speaking back, and God is speaking to it and through it to develop and show you the picture how this thing all comes about in these last days. God promises this city of Jerusalem, (verse 16) “Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me. Thy children (which means the ones to come) shall make haste; (they will come quickly) thy destroyers (which are the Arabs) and they that made thee waste shall go forth of thee.” The Oslo Accord will not allow it now because they do not see the necessity for such a thing. Neither will a New World Order agenda tolerate such things. The New World Order wants everybody to live in peace according to their political ideas. So they are going to cram thousands of people into a small quart jar. Why do you say that? Because the land of Israel is about the size of Rhode Island. This is going to be a bigger thing than a quart jar. “Lift up thine eyes round about, and behold: all these gather themselves together, and come to thee. As I live, saith the Lord, thou shalt surely clothe thee with them all, (the new immigrants coming back) as with an ornament, and bind them on thee, as a bride doeth. For thy waste and thy desolate places, and the land of thy destruction, shall even now be too narrow (crowded) by reason of the inhabitants, (the ones to come) and they that swallowed thee up shall be far away.” Bro. Jackson: Where are they going? Back where they came from, back to the land of their forefathers. If God promised to bring His children back in the last days and give them this land that He promised centuries ago to Abraham, and He brings them out of the nations where He has scattered them, He promised that, then this lets you know, The Arabs that are now there will have to be sent back where their forefathers came from. They will say to them, You are not going to have a home here any longer, your home is over there in the desert. “The children which thou shalt have, after thou hast lost the other, (back in the time of the siege) shall say again in thine ears, (The new immigrants coming shall say in the hearing of Zion and Jerusalem.) The place is too strait (narrow) for me: give place to me that I may dwell.” That all means this, When this is being fulfilled before the eyes of the world, this house of David, this lineage of King David, these Jews that are still out there scattered somewhere, are going to come back in such a swift way, they will literally say to the governors and leadership who are watching over the restoration of this city, Look, I know it is crowded, but please, I want to live there. We are going to see that hour. Saints, the Bible is right: It is our politicians that are wrong. Philosophers are also wrong. God will allow the New World Order to last to a certain point in time: Then when He strikes it, He will totally destroy it.


EZEKIEL 38 & 39 ARE NOT CONNECTED TO ARMAGEDDON


I just want to take a little time to refresh our minds on a few things before we end this message. We are living in a short span of time just before the seventieth week of Daniel will begin; and we have built a picture for you on how this world must enter into an era that we refer to as an era of the miraculous: which is a short time of strictly the miraculous brought about by God’s own sovereignty, in the Middle East. It is a must. It has its predetermined purpose, and God is going to fulfill His objective in it. It will not bring mass conversion, because grace is being phased out by then. I ask you though, How many of these modern evangelists who preach the New World Order system, have you heard put Ezekiel, chapter 38, over in the battle of Armageddon? Ezekiel 38, is not in any way connected with Armageddon. The setting is completely opposite. Without a lot of elaboration, I just want to rehearse a few things we have covered, so I ask that you who hear it on tape, read the entire contents of Ezekiel 38 & 39. Watch the various settings that are described. We will notice that there is something that stands out very vividly in this reading. It says in the 38th chapter, starting in the 8th verse, “After many days thou shalt be visited: (meaning Russia) in the latter years (we are living in them) thou shalt come into the land (which is Israel) that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people.” This is a picture of Israel after she has already accomplished that great miraculous feat of conquering the Moslem world, from Egypt and on through Iraq. It will not take her years nor months, but however long it takes her to drive those tanks and fly those planes, to rain the devastation God will use her for, you can rest assured that is just how long it will take her to do her job. When that thing is over, the Moslem world that sprang up in the regions of Median and Mecca, is going to be washed completely clean of that old militant spirit of hat that has denied recognition to the Jews, by the Arab people. We can easily see how that is going to fulfill a setting between the Arabs and the nations of Arabs around her. That Moslem spirit has always been a spirit that promotes hate, with Israel setting right in the heart of it, but this miraculous working of the Spirit of God takes away that long line of hatred and creates an entirely different environment. For the first time since 1948, Israel can begin to breathe with a sign of relief. It says here, Thou will come into this 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 is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them.” For fifty years now, that has not been a picture of possibility for Israel, but the promise is there for them, here in the end time. They have fought various battles, just trying to hold on to what they have already. Every year, there have been Jews killed by Arabs, the Hamas, and various types of hate groups that have reigned terrorism in the land of Palestine, against the Jewish people. This is God’s objective, to settle this Islamic spirit once and for all time, to destroy it, and it turns the Arab people, who are related to the Jew, back to the God of Abraham, which is also their genetic forefather, as well as the Jews’. They are not going to be saying he is the God of Ishmael, but hat He is the God of Israel, or Jacob. This will constitute peace. Now it says in here, and I am just going to pick out and highlight certain verses. I know what it all says, but it is the highlight verses that cuts the story short. When Russia does this, with all her league of nations, sixty percent of the Russian nation itself is Islamic, so it is the tie of Islam within the Russian territory that ties them to their allies, which is Turkey, Pakistan, Afghanistan and those southern regions, which will all be incorporated, plus Iran, then Ethiopia, then Libya, because they are all still Islamic. These people are not related to the Jews like the Arabs are. They have the same religion, but not the same genetic tie. It is that Islamic religion that ties all these other nations to Russia. With Iran standing in the forefront, chewing the bit, saying, Let us at them! This begins to constitute an overwhelming reason for Russia to play her part in this particular attack on Israel. I want to say, Ezekiel 38 is in no wise a picture of Armageddon, and this is very easy to prove, by the very descriptions of the two battles. This battle of Ezekiel 38, is a picture of devastation and judgment brought about by God in a miraculous way, on behalf of Israel. This war in itself, which lasts only a very short period of days or hours is the last of the miraculous display of God’s power. When this war is over, if you read the entire contents, you can see this great onslaught of Russia and all her alliance with her, portrays them coming into Israel in a great mass, to rain havoc in a surprise attack, but their plans go awry. There is not one thing you read in this account, that shows the Israeli military forces being involved. I do not want any theologian or educated man, no matter how much Greek or Hebrew he knows, trying to read into this account that Israel herself is involved in any kind of retaliatory move. It is absolutely a strike of potential deadly proportions on Israel, designed by Russia’s technicians, to really put Israel in the place they want them to be in, but God Himself makes it a quite different story. This will no doubt come about at a time when Russia has used some of her high tech jamming devices to jam Israel’s radar facilities, and all her communications, strictly for a purpose that she can bring on her armada of planes and drop a huge mass, hundreds of thousands of paratroopers to cover the land in a surprise attack. That is the only way you can hope to pull off an act like we find described here. These people are not coming by water invasion, using amphibious conveyances. Neither are they coming by long convoys on overland routes. If that was known by Israel, and she definitely has her spy network, she would have set up forces along the way, and would notify headquarters that they are on the move. Russia could jam the communications, but the spy setup would already have the word out. The planes would be in the air to meet these probes from whatever direction they were coming. That is why it says, They will come like a cloud to cover the land. Notice verses 9-10. “Thou shalt ascend and come like a storm, thou shalt be like a cloud to cover the land, thou, and all thy bands, and many people with thee. (The many people with her, will be all those you see mentioned in verses 5-6.) 10, Thus saith the Lord GOD; It shall also come to pass, that at the same time shall things come into thy mind, and thou shalt think and evil thought.”  Imagine at an hour of time when a nation no doubt is sound asleep, all of a sudden you hear noting but a drone of planes. What a surprise to wake up to. They are already over the drop zone and thousands of men are coming to earth in parachutes. God plainly says He will rain upon them with a great rain. The world is yet to see what god can do when you get Him angry. I want to read these verses carefully now. In verse 13, this is the area of Saudi Arabia, speaking in behalf of Israel. “Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto thee, (Russia and her great band) Art thou come to take a spoil? Hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey? To carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil? Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say unto Gog, (That is the ruler in Russia at that time.) Thus saith the Lord God; In that day when my people of Israel dwelleth safely, (The Arabs in the land of Palestine will no longer be their enemies, because that old Islamic, militant, hateful religion will be gone. It is dead by then.) shalt thou not know it? And thou shalt come from thy place out of the north parts, thou, and many people with thee, all of them riding upon horses, (The prophecy was given almost six hundred years before Christ, so that is the language you would use, but it is not horse flesh today, like it would have been then: it is horse power. I have to say, It is not only men going to be dropped from planes, but also trucks, jeeps, guns and every kind of military weapon that is being used in that hour.) a great company, and a mighty army: And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; (This is worded precisely in this fashion to give the wise people a picture of how to look at this sudden appearance in the skies, a dramatic setting that has come as a total surprise to Israel.) it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring thee against my land, that the heathen (Oh you educated people of the world, learn.) may know me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O God, before their eyes.” When you take that, and go ahead and read it all the way through, you see God’s miraculous power in preserving this little nation. On her part she has fought a miraculous war, a war in which God gives her total victory from every corner of the Mideast world, and there is no doubt in my mind that men will come forth with testimonies of what they have witnessed in that short interval of time.


TESTIMONIES OF THE SUPERNATURAL


This time, it is not going to be like it was in the Six Day War of 1967, when the political Jews said very little concerning the fact that it was their God that fought on their behalf. It was the little man, that recognized the intervening hand of God. It was the soldiers on the field of battle, that gave recognition to something beyond their natural ability. It was the pilot whose plane was badly shot up, and he had radioed home that he was going to have to ditch it, and he has already radioed his buddy, telling him his predicament. Then, all of a sudden, as he looked out at the wing, he saw a little man sitting out there saying, Go on! Go on! The atheists say, Prove to us that there is a God. Well all you atheists, Get ready: God is going to show Himself to you, but not to please you, or to grant you salvation: He is going to give you an opportunity to wake up your stubborn mind and realize it is not all your technology and science you have learned, that is having this effect, but His sovereign power. God is going to show Himself to a lot of people, to be so real, but only for their judgment, not their salvation. Therefore the world, from one end of this planet to the other, is going to be able to see that only God has done this. He has not only done it to fulfill His promise to Israel, and to prepare her heart for what lies ahead, but also for the purpose of judgment on another element, because, when this miraculous event of Ezekiel 38 is over, HE has literally devastated that mass of men that came forth for only one purpose, to try to destroy Israel’s ability to ever defend herself again, only to meet sudden death in the land they have invaded. When you look at this from the military standpoint, that this great number was coming from the air, not from different land routes, when it is all over, and God only leaves a small percentage, one sixth part of them, to go back home and tell their people what has happened, do you think they are going to have a good story to tell? They are going to tell a story of fear, how scary it is to jump out of an airplane and meet sudden death when you hit the ground, and how some of their buddies were just carried away and strewn through the tree tops. What does the Bible really say in Ezekiel 38? Israel, not the world, Israel will spend seven months burying the dead and hire men for continual employment for that purpose, until the land is cleansed from that mass slaughter of wicked mankind. We can read a few verses from chapter 39. Verse 11, is where we will start reading. “And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will give unto Gog a place there of graves in Israel, the valley of the passengers on the east of the sea: and it shall stop the noses of the passengers: and there shall they bury Gog and all his multitude: and they shall call it the valley of Hamongog. (12) And seven months shall the house of Israel be burying of them, that they may cleanse the land. (13) Yea, all the people of the land shall bury them; and it shall be to them a renown the day that I shall be glorified, saith the Lord GOD. (14) And they shall sever out men of continual employment, passing through the land to bury with the passengers those that remain upon the face of the earth, to cleanse it: after the end of seven months shall they search. (15) And the passengers that pass through the land, when any seeth a man’s bone, then shall he set up a sign by it, till the buriers have buried it in the valley of Hamongog. (16) And also the name of the city shall be Hamonah. Thus shall they cleanse the land.” You have all of that but you still do not have Armageddon, because, in that great battle called Armageddon, it plainly says this, That the dead bodies shall lie from one end of the earth to the other. They shall burned, neither shall they be lamented, meaning wept over. They become as dung over the face of this earth. Yes, God calls for the fowl of the earth and beasts of the earth to come and eat flesh till ye be filled, and drink blood till ye be drunk, for this is the supper of the great God. In a sense there is a similar supper in this likeness that will go on while men of continual employment are searching out where all the dead may be found. When you have convoys and probes of military men coming from different angles, the leaders and those that lay out the strategy usually know where the main impact of conflict occurs. You do not have to go through the woods looking to see where the masses have fallen, because they are in the major battle field. There can always be the scattered, small element here and there, but the major portion usually fall in an area where the two opposing forces meet. However in this Ezekiel 38 and 39 scene, you have a picture of utter devastation rained from heaven, and God has blown them and scattered them ever which way, and that is why it takes seven months to locate and bury all of them. Israel is not that large a land, that if this battle was fought in a major, strategic area, it would take seven months to cover the battlefield. I believe you understand what I mean. On the other hand, when there is no central battlefield, and from every area of the countryside people are reporting bodies being found, bodies here, bodies there, all along the roadside, in the desert and everywhere people go, bodies are found, burying them becomes a slow process. When God strikes them with death, they fall where they are: therefore they are strewn across the whole land. What we do notice in these scriptures, is that they depend upon people passing through the land to help them find those that fall in remote places, like maybe tourist business is still being conducted. Having been on some of those tours in Israel, I know when you get on one of those tour buses, the guide is sitting in front with a Public Address System, and is telling what took place here, what happened there and so forth. He gives the date, the years, and the time, doing his best to build a picture in your mind; therefore I can just see that hour, as they are traveling along in the remote regions of the desert, some tourists want to stop in various places, so they stop the bus to let the tourists take a stroll: Then here comes one running back to the bus, Guide, up behind that clump of rocks, is a dead body and it is stinking something terrible. Yes, by the time this is all over and the routine of natural life is picked up again, this is likely to occur, so they will put up a sign of some kind by that corpse, to notify the burying detail of it. What we want to make clear to you though, IS THAT THIS IS STILL NOT ARMAGEDDON. It is a description of a battle, a battle God wants the world to know about. It is strange, that the world will not keep the memory of it very long though: because you still have the reign of the antichrist and the battle of Armageddon ahead. Nevertheless, God has an objective in mind for all of this. When you read the rest of these two chapters, it tells how HE will rain on Russia and those that ally with them fire and brimstone. It tells of the devastation God will bring about against Russia. I want to say, This is the closing of the era of miracles, but it closes out with God judging a nation, that by the time this is over, has had eighty some years of teaching the world that there is no God. She has sent her instructors, she has sent her insurrectionists, her political teachers trying to promote their brand of communism as an ideology throughout the whole world. Here is this setting, God has shown that communism is nothing. It goes to show communism as an ideology cannot, and will not ever be allowed to conquer the whole world. We will drop back and read a few verses in chapter 38. God to verse 18. “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. (19) 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; (20) 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. (21) 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. (22) 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. (23) 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” This nation has for centuries, done things that displeased God, but He has His way of dealing with things, and He lets His true people know what to expect. They are the only ones that take seriously that which the prophets spake long ago. That is why we know, and others do not. With all of this in mind, I want to read the dream God gave me that unlocks all these prophecies that are yet to be fulfilled.


THE DREAM


In my dream, I saw myself come into the possession of certain words. I immediately said to myself, This is going to lead to something. Suddenly I was in possession of certain numbers. I didn’t know then whether they were dates, or numbers related to some other subject. I immediately wrote down all of this. I began to say to my wife, Honey, all this is going to lead to something. The scene changed and I saw myself speaking to my people at Faith Assembly saying, You set these words down and don’t forget them. This is all going to come together and form a great picture of understanding, something about the coming of our Lord. Then the scene changed again and I saw a large gathering of people taking place somewhere. They were coming from all over the world. I saw all these people assembling and talking about the great feeling they have inside their hearts about the coming of Jesus. At this time I notice there was one thing about everyone who was coming to this great assembly: Each person had in their hand, not in their pockets, a small bottle of holy anointing oil, (see Exodus 30:22-31) no larger than a person’s own thumb. One thing was very noticeable, Each person had received their bottle of oil directly from God, not from man. No one was allowed into this great assembly unless they had their bottle of holy anointing oil. However, there was no one standing at the door of entrance into this great assembly to certify that. Again I saw myself saying to people, Remember these words, do not forget them, we are about to learn something. Then the scene changed again. At this time, Bro. William Branham came into the scene. He stood in front of the assembly and began to speak. I heard him saying things that was lifting the hearts of the people into a great feeling of expectancy. My own heart is thrilled with what was being said. I heard myself saying in a low voice, to those standing close by, What did I tell you? Did I not tell you that we were going to learn something? Remember those words I told you that I had received. The atmosphere at this time was thrilling and the aroma coming from all those little bottles of holy anointing oil was so sweet. Then the scene changed and I saw myself speak out to the people and say, I want to tell you of a dream I had concerning this great event. Then I began to speak to them the same words that I am now telling to you, of what I saw in the dream, and what I had heard. It was while telling them of the dream, within a dream, that I woke up, at exactly 5:01 A.M. Wednesday, July 14, 1993. When I awoke I could no longer remember the words that I had received, nor the numbers, nor what Bro. Branham had said, because I know that it is all yet in the future to unfold.


END OF DREAM


Not long after that time, these scriptures began to come to me. They are chapters. One by one I could see. When we read Micah, concerning that miraculous era, and you read Numbers 24 right with it. What is the purpose? Take it right over to Zechariah 12, which says, In that day, I will make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it. Those people over there always have to fight over something. What is the fight all about? Jerusalem. Over such a small place? Yes, but that is the focal point. That is the fuse that ignites the bomb, so to speak. I will just say for now, All of this is ahead of us. I know, before it is all over, somewhere the image of Bro. Branham has got to come into the picture. I can see, that through the moving of the Spirit that has followed that, especially among you young people, God has anointed you for a purpose. It lets me know, before it is all over, every person that is considered in this, is going to be touched, and filled with that oil. God is going to give it, not man. I am thankful for what I have been privileged to see. I was given some articles from the Internet, that speak of how there are two characters possibly in line to take Yasser Arafat’s position. WE do not know which one or what, but we will say this, There is no doubt, that at the right strategic time, God will remove Yasser Arafat. If these Arabs are to begin to be divided in their own person choice as to who they want to represent them in the position of leadership, it is definitely going to bring about a change in the political atmosphere, and in how things begin to develop in the Middle East, so with that, I will close my remarks on this subject. Amen.
