    Bill M,

    I noticed I placed the wrong chapter, it's ( Isaiah 13:5-8)
  • Walter Bratton on Obadiah 1
    Obadiah 1:10 For thy violence against thy brother Jacob shame shall cover thee, and thou shalt be cut off for ever.

    This is the 1st time we hear claim of violence against Esau. In real life, the last time Esau and Jacob saw each was on the trail, and Jacob feared Esau would kill him for stealing the birthright, ( Genesis 33). Any previous mention of Gog/the beast anti-christ were glowing. God used Esau's "sanctified" beast army to defeat Jacob (Babylon); anti-christ's army are described as "even them that rejoice in my highness". Gog/beast are Christian's from a (frozen) desert ( Isaiah 21:1). The times God brags about His "northern army" are many.

    He calls anti-christ's army, "His army", His "sanctified ones" and "His camp".

    ( Isaiah 13: 3-6) I have commanded my sanctified ones, I have also called my mighty ones for mine anger, even them that rejoice in my highness.

    4 The noise of a multitude in the mountains, like as of a great people; a tumultuous noise of the kingdoms of nations gathered together: the LORD of hosts mustereth the host of the battle.

    5 They come from a far country, from the end of heaven, even the LORD, and the weapons of his indignation, to destroy the whole land.

    6 Howl ye; for the day of the LORD is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty.

    ( Joel 2:11) And the LORD shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executeth his word: for the day of the LORD is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?

    What did Esau do to change God's mind into HATING him? Esau did God's will and destroyed Babylon, so what happened beyond that? What violence does anti-christ do to infuriate God?

    Earl,

    I agree with you in part, but your day of the Lord interpretation doesn't take into account our leaders can easily bring about WWIII, like they did I & 2. When you read about this attack, there are real people dying in a panic, wearing flames.

    God tells us plain as day that He is coming for us, His Spirit is with our enemies to do His will.

    Isaiah 13:5 They come from a far country, from the end of heaven, EVEN THE LORD, and the weapons of his indignation, to destroy the whole land.

    The forth kingdom described by Daniel in the later years, has 7 heads and 10 horns. Jesus Christ is the rock 'hewn without hands' that smashes the beast to rule all kingdoms:

    Daniel 2:45 Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.

    The scriptures below show strict millennial temple worship of the Lord from all nations visiting Jerusalem. They must be going to a temple, to pay respects to Jesus. Jesus Christ sits on Davids throne, otherwise why continue the unbroken lineage? Was it not written that Christ would sit on David's throne?

    Zechariah 14:16-17

    Psalm 86:9

    Psalm 22:27

    Revelation 15:4

    I see a physical Jesus Christ, transformed and supernatural, coming back in time to stop the feuding beast army from completely blowing the earth up; worse than Isaiah 24.

    Fox News Headline 6-10-21: Putin gushes with FLATTERY towards Trump

    "Putin calls Trump an 'extraordinary talented individual, otherwise he would not have become U.S. President". Putin told NBC News in his first interview with a U.S. news network since 2018. "He is a colorful individual".

    ( Daniel 11:21) And in his estate shall stand up a vile person, to whom they shall not give the honour of the kingdom: but he shall come in peaceably, and obtain the kingdom by FLATTERIES.

    Putin is poised to put a flame on your face.

    ( Isaiah 13:7-8)

    7 Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every man's heart shall melt:

    8 And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that travaileth: they shall be amazed one at another; their FACES shall be as FLAMES.

    This is NOT a symbolic scripture, this will become as real as any war gets.
  • Richard Estrada
    Ronald,

    The abomination of desolation has nothing to do with the beast in Revelation? WHAT? That's his signature move, he destroys Babylon, he tells the world who he is on that day. Did you ever read about it? ( Isaiah 13)( Isaiah 47)( Revelation 18).

    Allow the Bible to define itself for you; you'll have a better understanding of the big picture inside a bigger picture.
  • S Spencer - in Reply on 1 Thessalonians 5
    Hi Peter.

    This is those who inhabitant the Earth after the Church is caught up to meet the Lord.

    1 Thessalonians 5:4-9. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.

    Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.

    Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.

    For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.

    But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.

    For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

    Isaiah 2:12. For the day of the LORD of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low:

    Isaiah 13:9, ...11 (KJV) Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy "THE SINNERS" thereof out of it....10...

    11. And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.

    Joel 1:15. Alas for the day! for the day of the LORD is at hand, and as a destruction from the Almighty shall it come.
  • Judge Martin - in Reply on Genesis 1
    Misheal,

    You have a misunderstanding of what "the day of the Lord" is. It is not a joyous occasion, but the opposite. It is a one hour long battle, at the sixth trumpet, second woe. War. It is judgment day for the people of earth, leaders, bringing forth great tribulation. Read what really happens that day: Isaiah 13, Isaiah 21:1-9, Isaiah 24, Isaiah 47, Ezekiel 21:1-24, Ezekiel 38:1-17, Jeremiah 50/51, Joel 2:1-11, Revelation 17/18 & Luke 21:20-24 (Israel's fall).

    Please tell me you understand what that term means.
  • Simon - in Reply on Revelation 6
    Mishael,

    Why not talk more about the end-times, so the ignorant may become wise? Something big is coming our way, catastrophic. You are bright with the NT, no doubt, but what of the OT? Jesus never shied away from honoring the prophets, and without them, there'd be nothing to fulfill. More importantly, in our times, we are seeing Revelation unfold. Shouldn't you understand the signs and tell the people over affirmations?

    Do you know how many Christians believe Jesus is coming next to save us, while not understanding antichrist must yield 42 months of world power, prior to Messiah's appearing? Christians are in a spiritual haze, without compass, no order of semblance or understanding. They know what someone has told them.

    I see 99% NT here, some to never know the prophets are more accurate than the morning newspaper. The prophets paint America as Mystery Babylon (new Rome) that gets hit with the "abomination of desolation" at the day of the Lord, sixth trumpet. There's only east vs west powers left: beast & Babylon. Come to terms with America being that evil, backsliding militant government, where in one hour is brought to naught. ( Revelation 18:18-20) God avenges the blood of prophets on her, the same forgotten prophets of today.

    The day of the Lord does not mean what most think it does ( Isaiah 13) ( Isaiah 47) ( Revelation 18). For people of earth, Babylon, it is a day of darkness and thick dark clouds. The beast has super weapons ( Ezekiel 21:9-12); devices ( Daniel 11:25) at sixth trumpet, and ( Daniel 11:24) post sixth trumpet. His weapons cause enough damage to knock the earth off its axis ( Isaiah 24:20) wobble, causing less daylight, a global curse. Joel 2:1-11 gives a visceral account of the unstoppable smart missile strike. The sixth trumpet is effectively the destruction of the whole house of Israel ( Isaiah 24), save the one hundred forty four thousand, elect. Between the sixth and seventh trumpets lie mans worst days.
  • Simon on 2 Chronicles 10
    Ezekiel 38 Biblical Perspective

    Ezekiel 38: 1-9

    Part 1 of 4: Gog's sixth trumpet attack on Israel (house):

    vs 3 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:

    vs 4 And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company withbucklers and shields, all of them handling swords:

    ( 2 Thessalonians 2:6) And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.

    vs 7 Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them.

    ( Revelation 9:15) And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men.

    vs 8 After many days....in the latter years thou shalt come...against the mountains of Israel (house), and they shall dwell safely all of them...

    ( Revelation 9:13) And the sixth angel sounded....

    vs 9 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.

    God is against Gog, yet Gog is finally brought forth in the latter days to do God's will against Israel, Babylon, and eventually every world government. The first "cloud to cover the land" is reported. Israel (house) is being attacked.

    ( Jeremiah 5:15) Lo, I will bring a nation upon you from far, O house of Israel, saith the LORD: it is a mighty nation...

    ( Isaiah 13:5-6) They come from a far country...

    ( Joel 2:3-11) ...the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness...

    ( Isaiah 47) vs 9 But these two things shall come to thee in a moment in one day, the loss of children, and widowhood..

    Ron,

    I agree when satan's kicked out of heaven and that initiates the 6th trumpet, 2nd woe, day of the Lord. For reference, here are a few describing the same event from different angles: Isaiah 13, Isaiah 21:1-9, Isaiah 24, Isaiah 47, Ezekiel 21:1-24, Ezekiel 38:1-17, Joel 2:1-11, 2 Thessalonians 2:3, Revelation 18. This battle is over in an hour.

    Daniel 9:27 I see what you are saying about the language, the dualism. At this point, I need to examine other evidence surrounding this verse, compared to other scriptures to better pin point what is going on.

    Right off the bat, it is well known that the day of the Lord sees Jesus coming like a thief with His northern army to lay the land desolate. God states that anti-Christ's army is His army, Joel 2: 10-11

    Seeing then that I will cut off from thee the righteous and the wicked, therefore shall my sword go forth out of his sheath against all flesh from the south to the north: Ezekiel 21:1-7 "MY sword will go out of HIS sheath".

    Howl ye; for the day of the LORD is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty, Isaiah 13: 6 This characteristic of the strike is synonymous with the man of sin, spoiler at noonday, anti-Christs.



    God furbishes a sword and places it in the slayers (anti-Christ's) hand, Ezekiel 21:9-12 Russia has God-like weaponry, God has blessed Russia's scientists. Howl ye; for the day of the LORD is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty, Ezekiel 21:12

    The 70 weeks is a classic Bible mystery. I will study it again. The way I explained it to you makes sense to me considering the 6th trumpet lasts 42 months. I have no strong convictions towards it, and would evolve my mind if I was presented a sound concept. As it stands, it is a side bar to my love of the Lord and His prophets.

    I will be around to reprove.
  • Darren Croft - in Reply on Psalms 90:10
    Charlotte Ann,

    The rapture is at the end, at the 7th trumpet, and for the very few who survived the chaos. We haven't been hit with the 6th trumpet yet ( Isaiah 13, Isaiah 47, Rev 18), the day of the Lord, the abomination of desolation set in America, or the invasion and captivity of Israel. You'll have to make it through anti-christ's 42 month rule before any intervention occurs. Everything Biblical has a specific order and time-line to be fulfilled.

    Happy birthday!!!
  • Peggy - in Reply on Isaiah 13:10
    Isaiah 13 is the abomination of desolation description of America getting its Rev 18:6 to the double. Same with Isaiah 47 and many other verses concerning the day of the Lord strike. Ezekiel 21:9-12 God furbishes a sword and puts it in the hand of the slayer. You see vs 12 God says he is against his own people, the house of Israel and the house of Judah. The beast Russian confederacy, who God has commissioned to do his will, will make the whole house of Israel desolate. Mystery Babylon America gets baptized by fire; ironic how Israel's 6M Ashkenazim (Japheth) false Jews ( Gen 10:2-3) are invaded and taken into a 3rd captivity. The rest of the Babylonian system goes dark and falls that day. Luke 21:20-24 gives us another glimpse of Israel being taken away in chains. Do you know why America isn't there to save Israel from invasion? America received the abomination of desolation.
  • Peggy - in Reply on Jeremiah 29
    The day of the Lord is a very specific day of destruction from the Almighty; Judgment day for the people of earth. It is not an everyday occurrence: Mystery Babylon and the entire Babylonian system comes down in under one hour. The day of the Lord is synonymous with the 6th trumpet strike: Isaiah 13, Isaiah 47, Ez 21:1-24, Ez 38:1-17, Jer 50, Jer 51 and Rev 18. It is Jesus who comes like a thief on HIS day named for HIM to lay the land desolate. The spoiler at noonday (anti-christ) Jer 15:8 places the abomination of desolation that obliterates both corrupt houses of Israel to dust. America by fire, and Israel by invasion/captivity as they reap Jacob's 6th trumpet time of trouble.
  • Scott Bestler on Isaiah 13:10
    In Isaiah 13:20 the Word says Babylon will never be inhabited again, yet it's present day Iraq with millions of people right? It doesn't sound like this is a future event in the text, but I'm wondering what else it could be.

  • Joe Bell - in Reply on Revelation 6
    When the whole house of Israel (all 12 tribes) left Egypt, the were lead by Moses, a Levite, not a Jew.

    Israel wasn't divorced, they were punished by God 7 times (7x 360 day/yrs = 2,520 years) according to Deuteronomy 26.

    1) The house of Israel were taken into captivity by Assyria in 721 BC + 2,520 years = 1,799 Ephraim became the British empire, and America (Manasseh) would come out of his twin brother. The US is a Corporation owned by London; The Act of 1871.

    2) Then, the house of Judah were taken captive to Babylon in 604 BC +2,520 years = 1917 Balfour Declaration, where Britain (Japheth born Rothschild) bought the false Ashkenazi Khazar Jews a home on land they had no claim to. Gen 10:2-3

    The lead house of Israel tribes (Ephraim, Manasseh--sons of Joseph) are the birthright people (land, wealth) per their Gen 48 blessing. The lands' ownership is effectively the house of Israel, not Judah.

    Our current climate of sustained chaos gets upended at the coming 6th trumpet, when Babylon America falls, Israel invaded. It's time for Jacobs trouble, and not Judah's trouble. Isaiah 13, Isaiah 47, Joel 2:1-11 & Rev 18, and the abomination of desolation set in America is very perplexing.
  • UNITED STATES in PROPHESYMishael on Genesis 6
    I've read in a book on Prophesies ( they're out there. Buy one)

    That America/United States is called in prophesy: Islands in the Sea. That's because the continents are surrounded by water. Also, Britain, Scotland, Australia and others.

    Here are the scriptures:

    Isaiah 11:11

    And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea.

    Isaiah 13:22

    And the wild beasts of the islands shall cry in their desolate houses, and dragons in their pleasant palaces: and her time is near to come, and her days shall not be prolonged.

    Isaiah 41:1

    Keep silence before me, O islands; and let the people renew their strength: let them come near; then let them speak: let us come near together to judgment.

    Isaiah 42:12

    Let them give glory unto the LORD, and declare his praise in the islands.

    Isaiah 42:15

    I will make waste mountains and hills, and dry up all their herbs; and I will make the rivers islands, and I will dry up the pools.

    Isaiah 59:18

    According to their deeds, accordingly he will repay, fury to his adversaries, recompence to his enemies; to the islands he will repay recompence.

    Jeremiah 50:39

    Therefore the wild beasts of the desert with the wild beasts of the islands shall dwell there, and the owls shall dwell therein: and it shall be no more inhabited for ever; neither shall it be dwelt in from generation to generation.

    America is not without sin. Plenty of people describe it as the new whore of Babylon.

    Have we not seen people who murder, shoot up synagogues, set them on fire: rain hatred on them sunup to past midnight?

    How many churched people have come in here recently, saying, despite going to church regular, they barely know anything about scripture or prophesy? Quite a bit.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Ezekiel 38
    United States, England, Ireland, Scotland. Any nation off the west coast of Europe and Africa are considered to be: the Islands of the Sea.

    Isaiah 11:11

    And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea.

    Isaiah 13

    And the wild beasts of the islands shall cry in their desolate houses, and dragons in their pleasant palaces: and her time is near to come, and her days shall not be prolonged.

    Isaiah 41:1

    Keep silence before me, O islands; and let the people renew their strength: let them come near; then let them speak: let us come near together to judgment.

    Isaiah 42:12

    Let them give glory unto the LORD, and declare his praise in the islands.

    No matter where you live: bottom line is to be ready to go with Jesus. God destroyed people on earth with water the first time.

    The 2nd time will be by fire.

    Repent! Get saved.
  • Jesse - in Reply on Matthew 24:38
    (Part 1)

    Tim,

    I would like to share with you my understanding of Matthew Chapter 24. Matthew Chapters 24 and 25 deal with the end-time prophecies. There are four sections in Chapter 24 that represent the 70th week of Daniel.

    Section 1: "The Pains of Birth" Verses 4-14. Section 2: Matthew 24:15 is "The Pivotal Point." Section 3: Matthew 24:16-28, "The Perils of Tribulation." And then fourthly, Verses 29 to 31 is "The Promise of His Coming," given to us in Isaiah 13:10 and 34:4, Joel 2:10 and 3:15, 7:13, Isaiah 27:13, and Zechariah 12:10.

    Beginning at verse 3 of Chapter 24, the disciples are looking for answers as to when these things are going to happen. Jesus then begins answering, and from Verses 4-14, He gives the details of the first 3-1/2 years of the tribulation, known as the pains of birth. In Verse 15, we have the pivotal point, the abomination of desolation.

    Then in Verse 16, we see that Jesus is talking to Jewish believers. Actually, I believe the entire Chapter is given to Jewish believers. But Jesus tells them to flee. Verses 16 to 28 talk about the perils of tribulation, the last 3-1/2 years of the 7 year Tribulation period. It's going to be a very severe time.

    Verse 22 is showing us that if God did not have a time period when He says okay I am going to stop, everybody would be wiped out.

    But for the sake of the elect, a special word brought over from the O.T. as a title for the Jewish people. They are His elect people. It doesn't mean they are all saved but they are His chosen people. He realizes there are 144,000 of them out there, plus all the others who believed, and this is something that is going to happen in the last part of the tribulation period.

    Verses 29-31, we have the promise of His coming. I recently shared the actual 7 Steps of a Jewish Wedding. If we understand those 7 steps, it helps to understand the coming of Christ and some of the Jewish views about when Christ is coming back. Those steps are fascinating!
  • Carlos Ramirez Trevino - in Reply on Matthew 24:29
    Hi, Jesse. I am by no means an authority on these things, but a cursory review of the use of stars in the Bible show their use can be literal or symbolic. In Isaiah 13:10, the meaning appears to be literal. Yet in Revelation it is figurative.

    In Genesis, for example, God created the stars. These are the astronomical bodies we observe at night. However, sometimes things said in the Bible have a double meaning. A star can represent an actual star, while at the same time, there is an underlying allusion to Angels, people in positions of leadership or authority.

    In Revelation 12:4, we see a reference to Angels, while in 12:1 the stars represent something else. Some commentators agree that 12:1 is a symbolic reference to the 12 Apostles. Here we have a reference to Christ and the devil. Genesis tells us, in keeping with this passage, that Satan and his angels were cast to earth. Daniel 8 is also supportive of this interpretation.

    In Revelation 8:10-12 we see how stars may take on other meanings. Is the star an angel, a meteor, an earthly leader or what some might call an environmental catastrophe, the result of pollution and adverse weather conditions?

    Keep in mind, while reading Revelation, that what is written is not outlined in chronological sequence. There is a back and forth in time, that may make understanding particularly difficult. So, what Revelation 8 or 12 or other Chapters reveal, are not necessarily sequential events. The same is true for the rest of the book.

    But if you notice, in the 6th Seal, in Chapter 6:13, the stars are cast down. And everyone is afraid and all hide. The symbolism of the stars here, while many mistake them for literal stars, is about governments, powers, authorities and war.

    In the 7th Seal, the Trumpets are introduced. This Seal signifies the last days of the Great Tribulation of Matthew 24. The Trumpets sound at the very last hour of the Tribulation. Then the Bowls of the Wrath of God are found in the last Trumpet.

    Edom itself is not a place, its a people, hence Jacob and Esau. Those who descended from Jacob/Israel are known as Israelites and those from Esau, Edomites. They inhabited the land of Idumea and then later stole Israels identity ( Psalm 83). So those currently in the land of Israel are nothing more than impostors ( Revelation 2:9) This chapter is talking about the restoration of the Most Highs chosen people and destruction of those who have been hard at work for thousands of years attempting to destroy them.

  • Shoshanahim on Ecclesiastes 1
    It was known to the writer of Ecclesiastes how this world had ended in the first timeline. In Ecclesiastes Chapter 12, it illustrates the time of trouble when the sun, moon, and stars will be veiled by the violent ejection of dust and thick smoke from a huge caldera (see Ecclesiastes 12:2 and Revelation 6:12; 9:2). A great star (comet of Revelation 8:10; 9:1) is likened to an eagle (see Ecclesiastes 12:4; Isaiah 46:11). When the ravenous bird (comet) enters Earth’s atmosphere, it causes a great sound of thunder. Its voice cries out like a thundering trumpet (see Ecclesiastes 12:4; Isaiah 27:13; Zechariah 9:14; Revelation
    11:15). The voice heralds the time of the latter-day literal and figurative resurrection for the latter-day righteous who believed this new doctrine (see Ecclesiastes 12:4; Daniel 12:1; Hosea 6:2; Revelation 11:11-13).

    Isaiah was also told how our world will end. In Isaiah 13:6, it states that the day of the Lord (who personifies a comet) is at hand. At that time, the light of the sun, moon, and stars will be veiled when dust and smoke explode from a huge volcano’s crater (see Isaiah 13:10). These prophecies were written over two thousand years ago. God’s written word is able to declare what is going to take place in the last generation because God (personifying each scroll that records and plays over each generation) has seen the end already take place in the first timeline (see Isaiah 46:10). The same catastrophic event of a great star’s (personified as the return of God) impact – which causes an immense volcano to explode and release dust, smoke, hot ash, and then lava – is written in the writings of the prophets. However, the written prophecies in the Old Testament, which are to be fulfilled in our day, are written as if they could have happened during events that took place in each prophet’s generation.

    With this in mind when reading the Old Testament prophecies, take into consideration that the past types are mixed-in with future, yet to be fulfilled, prophecies (see Job 14:12, 13; Psalm 18:7-9; Ecclesiastes 12:2-5; Isaiah 24:17-23; Jeremiah 4:23-28; Ezekiel 32:7, 8; Joel 2:1, 30-32; Amos 5:16-18; Micah 3:6; Nahum 1:3-6; Habakkuk 3:3-16; Zephaniah 1:14-18; Haggai 2:6; Zechariah 14:3, 4, 12; Malachi 4:1; Revelation 19:11, 20).
