As 'The End Of The Age' draws near, certain long ago mentioned prophecies are now coming about. Among these are prophesies respecting: Tyre, Sidon, The Kingdoms Of Egypt, The Coastlands Of Phillistia, Assyria, Moab, Canaan, Edom, Syria, Israel, Judah, and Babylon The Great. And yet, the majority of these nations no longer even exist when consulting our modern maps. Their people have moved over numerous generations; and their national identities have also readily changed over time.
The beauty of sacred scripture, however, is that we need not rely exclusively upon such places or names - when determining the nations that are so clearly involved. Why? Because, these nations are described in vivid and modern detail - which anyone with a basic knowledge of: History, Geography, and Social Studies can clearly identify!
- The United States Of America is: "Latter Day Tyre" - The End Time Confederation of: Assyria [minor], Ethiopia [minor], Edom, Moab, Canaan, and Israel.
- England is: "Sidon" - it's Manipulative Mother and Guardian to: "The Coastlands Of Phillistia."
- Germany is: "Assyria [proper]" - The A
- Italy is: "Chaldea [proper]" - The Gatekeepers Of Babylonia.
- The European Union is: "Babylon The Great" - that confusing mix of: Languages, Cultures, Kindreds, and Peoples.
- The Nations Of The Commonwealth are: "The Coastal Nations Of Phillistia" - which ply the world's sea routes... and, as always, they are living under The Protection and Shadow of: "Sidon."
- Libya, Tunisia, Ethiopia, Saudi Arabia, and Egypt comprise: "The Greater Kingdoms of Egypt."
Meanwhile, in the year immediately prior to Latter Day Tyre's Impending Civil War [which is, among other places, found in: Obadiah verses 6-7, Amos 1:9-10, Ezekiel 29:18, and Isaiah 18:5-6, or 23:10-14], we read about the numerous plagues sent by Yahweh - for The Preparation and Purification Of Israel - which dwells within Tyre [The United States].
Isaiah 27, Reads:
- "In that day sing to her: 'A vineyard of red wine! I, The Mighty One, keep it, I water it every moment; Lest any hurt it, I keep it night and day [Yahweh has hedged you in and protected you during all of your wanderings - particularly, while dwelling in Tyre]. Fury is not in Me [He is not extracting His vengeance upon you]. Who would set briers and thorns against Me in battle? I would go through them, I would burn them together [Were He to factually do so, you couldn't physically survive it]. Or let him take hold of My strength, That he may make peace with Me; And he shall make peace with Me [please understand, that He merely desires Your Repentance and Obedient Submission].'"
- "Those who come [any and all of them] He shall cause to take root in Jacob [even those, who are not My Genetic Children Of Promise]; Israel shall blossom [produce Real Fruits] and bud [sustain much-needed New Spiritual Growth], And fill the face of the world with fruit [it shall once again rise up lavishly, from its once seemingly dead Genetic Stump]."
- "Has He struck Israel as He struck those who struck Him? Or has he [Israel] been slain according to the slaughter of those who were slain by Him [Hasn't even His Highly-Selective and Physical Winnowing exhibited to us His ongoing: Love, Mercy, and Compassion]?"
- "In measure, by sending it away [by resenting My Chastening], You contend with it [you repeatedly strive against it]. He removes it [Our Iniquities] by His Rough Wind - in The Day Of The Eastward Wind. Therefore, by this [My Whirlwinds], the iniquity of Jacob will be covered [for this is My Chosen Atonement]; And this [My Unimaginable Storm] is all The Fruit Of Taking Away His [Israel's] Sin [for you refuse, and will not do it, yourselves]: When He makes all the stones of the altar Like chalkstones that are beaten to dust, When wooden images and incense altars do not stand up [Yahweh never intended for you to build those 'High-Places Of Worship' and He shall physically remove them from throughout All Of The Lands - of 'The Bible Belt' - currently occupied by Israel]." - Isaiah 27:2-9.
Though we might not remember Our Own Physical Ancestors, Yahweh [Himself] has never forgotten them... and He has been carefully watching over their countless descendants for innumerable generations! Let us read it, ourselves, from the scriptures....
In Isaiah Chapter 49, It says:
- "But Zion said, 'Yahweh has forsaken me, and my Mighty One has forgotten me.'"
- "Can a woman forget her nursing child, And not have compassion on the son of her womb? Surely they may forget, Yet I will not forget you."
- "See, I have inscribed you upon the palms of My hands [talking about the wounds born by Yahshua, upon the cross]; Your walls are continually before Me [How could He ever forget]."
- "Your sons shall make haste [when the appropriate day arrives]; Your destroyers [those who currently oppress you] and those who laid you waste [and their parents who enslaved you in the first place] Shall go away from you [for, I shall send them all to the pit and shut them up]."
- "Lift up your eyes [be observant and look around you], look around and see [try earnestly to notice what's truly happening]; All these gather together [I have already begun The Winnowing Process] and come to you [they are moving: First Southward and Then Eastward - even now Beyond The Great River]."
- "As I live, says Yahweh, 'You shall surely clothe yourselves with them all as an ornament [for He shall bring the very best of these others with you], and bind them upon you as a bride does [prior to 'The Wedding Feast']."
- "For your waste and desolate places [in the land, which I once promised to your fathers], And the land of your destruction [and that land from which Assyria so long ago enslaved you], Will even now be too small for the inhabitants [which I will very soon be bringing back to it]; And those who swallowed you up [All The Nations Of: Assyria and Babylon] will be far away [for I shall utterly destroy them]." - Isaiah 49:14-19.
He has even Struck An Oath before all of The Earth's Physical Nations, to absolutely confirm 'His Long Foreordained Promise To Israel:'
- "Thus says Yahweh, The Mighty One: 'Behold, I will lift My hand in an oath to the nations, And set My standard for the peoples [and The Tribe Of Judah Shall Wave It - at that appointed time]; They [the many nations who shall attest to this oath] shall bring your sons in their arms, And your daughters shall be carried upon their shoulders [through their efforts, which they shall expend upon you]; Kings shall be your foster fathers [in their hope to obtain My blessings]; And their Queens your nursing mothers [for they, indeed, shall then fear Me]; They shall bow down to you with their faces toward the earth [out of reverence towards Me], And lick up the dust of your feet [for it is You who are My Chosen Servants]. Then you will know that I am [indeed] The Mighty One, For they shall not be ashamed who wait for Me." - Isaiah 49: 22-23.
Rather than bemoaning Our Current Physical Afflictions, as if they are undue and unwarranted tragedies... or foolishly welcoming them, as if they are some kind of inverted blessing... we should maintain a proper: Spiritual Perspective, Societal Compassion, Personal Resolve, and Scriptural Understanding of these ongoing Meteorological and Weather Events. While: "Yahweh [selectively] removes the weeds [the stumbling blocks] from His vineyard [Israel]" and, "Digs about [loosening, aerating, and nourishing] the roots of His vines" - we should be focusing our own efforts at doing what Vines do best, by producing The Proper Spiritual Fruits that He is now honestly expecting!
Ahava and Shalom. May Yahweh's Love and Peace be upon you!
Ahava and Shalom.
