    The Day of the LORD is at hand and our redemption draws near! The chain of events which are now rapidly taking shape, have an end! We know that during the last, and most terrible and dreadful kingdom of the heathen, will be the days when the Lord comes to take them away for ever, when He sets up His everlasting kingdom. Let us not be troubled, but exulting; and the trial is only for small moment!

    And it shall come to pass in that day, that the mountains shall drop down new wine, and the hills shall flow with milk, and all the rivers of YAHudah shall flow with waters, and a fountain shall come forth of the house of YAHWEH Typical of such writings, the prophet follows the course of others, Yizroyl has sinned, she will be judged, she will return back to Me, and I will make things as they once were, only greater just as Messiah said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also and greater works than these shall he do because I go unto my Father. Jn 14:12 The book ends well, Egypt shall be a desolation, and Edom shall be a desolate wilderness, for the violence against the children of YAHudah, because they have shed innocent blood in their land. 20 But YAHudah shall dwell for ever, and YAHrushalayim from generation to generation. 21 For I will cleanse their blood that I have not cleansed: for YAHWEH dwelleth in T zyon. Notice Yahweh detests the shedding of innocent blood and makes no bones about so stating. I wonder what He thinks about Planned Parenthoods blood thirst against unborn, innocent, human beings. I think I know. I think the verse above is apropos and indicative of the Judgement lying ahead. I often cringe at the thought.
