“Many, O Lord my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: If I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.” (Psalm 40:5)
How we were blessed, particularly the Anglo Saxon nations. One only has to read Deuteronomy 33:13-18 to realize just how much. Think about it, prosperity galore due to the abundance of the choicest gifts of the earth and fearsome military power unequalled anywhere. In our younger days we in Canada and America often heard songs like Rule Brittania or The Star Spangled Banner proudly sung in schools and public gatherings across our lands. We were nations that were fully aware of the source of our blessings; as an eighteenth century minister remarked, “What cannot a people do when the Lord is on their side.”
It almost makes one weep to see how far we have fallen. It was inevitable, of course, because our forefather Jacob had used trickery to acquire the dominion that was the source of our prosperity and power but his brother Esau was promised that one day it would be his [descendants] and then he would effectively subdue Jacob. (Genesis 27:40) Sometime in the past, I believe in the early eighteen hundreds, Esau received his dominion and slowly, slowly but surely he and his collaborators have gained ownership and/or control over every aspect of our lives. So our choicest gifts of the earth are in their control and we Israelites toil in the fields/factories/shops and offices to fatten their purses instead of enjoying the gifts bestowed on us by our loving God.
I suppose the huge push forward was the control of money, from which they could create depressions, recessions and boom times, all the while buying up industries and collaborators in governments, businesses, even ecclesiastical movements. It is reminiscent of Psalm 83:3, “They have taken crafty counsel against thy people [Israel] and consulted against thy hidden ones”. Even though most of True Israel are blind to their identity, they know and are making sure those Israelites who do remember are ridiculed. And through the power of their control of communication, they have denigrated our Faith and our Saviour to the point that fewer and fewer true Israelites are standing on Christian principles. Most seem more content to abandon Christianity in favour of money, drink, drugs, sports, entertainment and pleasures.
Bondage is a terrible word. But when you consider the sting of debt that burdens True Israel nations and Israelites themselves, you have to say that Economic Babylon has us in a vice-grip. The Bible tells us that the borrower is servant to the lender and we certainly are slaves to this monster. Political Babylon has applied so many restrictions on us that we are totally controlled, even our freedom of speech. Ecclesiastical Babylon has watered down the Faith so much that the final step of doing away with Christ and replacing Him with an “all gods” theology is no longer a far-fetched idea. With so many of our theologians, some estimates as high as 35/50%, teaching the Jesus was just a messenger, not God Almighty, it is not difficult to see Paul’s warning of “the great falling away” at work, particularly as the enemies of Christ pick up the tempo of their attacks. The current theme echoes Jesus’ forecast that “when He returns shall He find the faith”.
Well, despite the success of the bondage over true Israel, despite the sick conditions in our lands and despite the horizon that depicts a very dismal road ahead, there is the great cure. 2 Chronicles 7:14 tells us this! All we have to do is humbly pray, stop sinning and turn back to Him and He will heal our lands. Hosea 5:15 basically says the same thing and the prophecy of Hosea 6:1-2 demonstrates this will indeed be the case. “Come, and let us return unto the LORD, ….. and he will bind us up. After two days he will revive us; in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight”. Of course, we understand from 2Peter 3:8 that a day is a thousand years so the 2 days equates to 2,000 years and the 3 days equates to 3,000 years.
But, there is little doubt that True Israel and their lands are indeed extremely sick today, and as each day passes, we are becoming more helpless, as the vice in the hands of the enemies of Christ becomes more brutal during this harvest period of their Dominion. Those of us who have had the blessing of restored sight pray constantly over God’s Words of Ezekiel 34:27, “…And they shall be safe in their land, and shall know that I am the LORD, when I have broken the bands of their yoke, and delivered them out of the hand of those that served themselves of them”. When Daniel wrote, “and the wise shall understand” we who study diligently hope we are included with the wise because then we can understand that the six days of labour did expire in 2001, as demonstrated through the studies of Bible scholar Dimbley and Great Pyramid [The Bible in Stone] scholar David Davidson and so, we are in the seventh day when the Millennium will begin.
I think I mentioned in a previous article how I am intrigued with chapter 20 of 2Kings, dealing with King Hezekiah. He was sick, in fact almost dead, and the LORD directed the prophet Isaiah to warn him that he had better start doing what needs to be done. Well, true Israel is becoming sicker as each month passes and if we ever expect to recover, at least the Christian body had better get to our knees and start doing what needs to be done. Hezekiah did; from his deathbed he prayed to the LORD and the LORD answered his prayer by saying He would heal Hezekiah, bring him to His Temple for worship in the third day and importantly for Hezekiah, He would add 15 years to Hezekiah’s life.
Can we see a comparison here? Perhaps! Strong’s tells us the word “Hezekiah” means “Strengthened of God.” Can He strengthen True Israel to the point we will start doing what needs to be done, that is, go to our knees and ask for intervention? It seems to me the sickness has to get worse, perhaps through an economic collapse, which looking at the landscape today is not far-fetched. Adding 15 years to our lifespan, say from 2001 takes us to 2016, perhaps the Autumn Equinox, coinciding with Davidson’s and Dimbely’ projection of the 2001 Autumn Equinox. It is interesting that the number “15” stands for “Rest.”
I am not certain about the meaning of the figs (verse 7) although they might be symbolic of the healing. It is interesting that the name “Isaiah” means “Jah has saved”. Also, the ten degrees backward escapes me but some reader might be enlightened and if so, please write us.
I am going to end this article by re-printing two small paragraphs of an article by Charles M. Cadwallader, one of our past correspondents. He wrote, “In times past whenever a crisis of humanly impossible solution confronted Great Britain (and more than once, the old lion’s lifeline has hung gravely precarious in the balance) it was customary for the reigning monarch to call the empire to a season of national prayer unto “Him Who rulest the nations of the earth” in a becoming attitude of humility and supplication, to intervene. This petition has never failed to bring about a miraculous solution to our distress, and dismay to the enemy. [A recent example is King George VI’s call for a day of prayer on the eve of D-Day]
It is axiomatic that Prayer is as essential to the Christian as a secure foundation is to a building. Prayer is the powerhouse of the Christian Faith. The Bible is well saturated with God’s promises and demonstrations of fulfilment. We have the greatest possible reason for belief that prayer is the most powerful factor in any difficulty, so please note what the Bible says: ‘WITHOUT ME ye can do nothing, but WITH ME nothing shall be impossible to you'”
