“The sword without and terror within.” Attacks upon America and Israel from outside, from other nations; Terror attacks within America by foreign nationals and Americans who have been radicalized by the forces that want a one world government.
George Washington had a vision of three wars on American soil. The final war came from Europe, Asia and Africa and it appeared that all was lost. BUT…Americans rose up and began to repel the attackers; afterwards she began to rebuild. However, she was not the same.
Is that time now? There is a time clock; it dwells in the mind of God.
A time is coming upon the world when the judgment of God will be fully unleashed against all who hate Him and His ways. No one person or nation will be responsible for the carnage that results at that time. God will lift His hand of protection over creation and the world of men, this will cause all manner of destruction to come; there will be no place to hide from the wrath of God.
Eventually, the God-haters will have their opportunity to “have it their way”. The result of rebellion against God and His way will be judgment. Not one person who is in alignment with God through the person of His Son Yeshua, the man Gentiles call Jesus, will be lost for eternity. However, throughout time there will continue to be those who will be martyred for Him.
God promises no wrath for those who are truly His children; these have been grafted in to the vine, Israel, and are part of the One New Man. The time of the One New Man is approaching. God will do the combining of the stick of Judah and the stick of Ephraim. Man will try to bring about unity between believing Gentiles and believing Jews; there will be a false unity just as surely as there is true unity. Jesus prayed for unity and true unity will come, but only by the power of the Holy Spirit.
“Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one stick, and write upon it, For Judah and for the children of Israel his companions; then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim, and for all the house of Israel his companions: Say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel his fellows, and will put them with him, even with the stick of Judah and make them one stick, and they shall be one in mine hand.” Ezekiel 37:16, 19
Many years ago I heard the Lord my God say, “You are of the tribe of Joseph.” I did not understand at that time what He meant. I wondered if I was of Jewish heritage. When I understood the Ezekiel passage above, I understood that he was saying that as a Gentile believer in the Jewish messiah, I was in Joseph.
Ephraim is the son of Joseph, the patriarch, his name means “fruitful”. The history of Ephraim is not so good, in the same way church history reveals a lot of shameful things, but the church has been fruitful in bringing the Good News of the redeemer to the world and before history is finished she will fulfill her role in the plan of God.
“For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ.” I Thessalonians 5:9
“That they all may be one; as thou, Father, are in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us; that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.” John 17: 21
The Adversary will continue to pursue his ambition to take the place of Yahweh, God. And, he will be allowed to take control of world government for a time, but only for a time. God is now, has been and will always be on the throne and He will never be deposed.
“Oh that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end!” Deuteronomy 32:25-33
“Void of counsel”, God says of a nation that has turned its back on God. “How should one chase a thousand and two put ten thousand to flight, except their Rock had sold them and the Lord had shut them up?” Deuteronomy 32:30
There is but one God, no matter how many claim to be God, He is LORD and there is no other, Isaiah the prophet declared it and it is so!
“Fear ye not, neither be afraid: have not I told thee from that time, and have declared it? ye are even My witnesses. Is there a God beside me? yea, there is no God; I know not any.” Isaiah 44:8
Since all these things be true as recorded in the scripture, “what manner of men ought we to be living holy and godly lives?” II Peter 3:11
“So that you come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” I Corinthians 1:7
Let no one who reads these words be found wanting, having been weighed by God in the balances. There is only one true measure that can balance sin and it is the sacrificial death and resurrection of the God Man, Jesus the Messiah of Israel.
Do you know Him? If not, repent of your sin of rebellion and turn to God with all your heart and soul, He will redeem you through Jesus blood, the only sacrifice acceptable to God. There is a mercy-seat, a place where you can come, a place where God will hear your penitent cry, forgive your sin and heal you. Don’t delay!
Praying that you will hear with the ears of your heart what Holy Spirit is saying today.
