Dec 24, 2017 Jerusalem the Burdensome Stone

leave a comment »

This excellent article by Luis Vega describes the real behind the scene effect of the USA move to place its embassy in Jerusalem.

Many prophecy students believe that the Ezequiel 38-39 war occurs before the seven year Apocalipse and Luis Vega makes a good case in support of this interpretation.

Good job Luis

“HEAVY STONE OF JERUSALEM – The Day Jerusalem Became Israel’s Capital”

HEAVY STONE OF JERUSALEM

U.S. EMBASSY ACT OF 1995

The Day Jerusalem Became Israel’s Capital

‘It will come about in that day that I will make Jerusalem a Heavy Stone for all the peoples; all who lift it will be severely injured. And all the Nations of the Earth will be gathered against it. ’ –Zechariah 12:3

The purpose of this study is to provide a historical backdrop and depict where the Sun and the array of celestial bodies were precisely when the U.S. Federal Government, under the directive of President Trump allowed for the Jerusalem Embassy Congressional Bill 1322 to initiate the full funding of the transfer of the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. One of the sub-titles of the study is ‘The Day Jerusalem became Israel’s Capital’. However, Jerusalem has been Israel’s capital for at least 3000 years. The current media interpretation of this prophetic milestone is a bit misleading. In one aspect, the U.S. President Trump did not ‘officially’ declare Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, it already was and is at least by Israeli supposition. What President Trump did was to affirm and officially recognize that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel as every nation has the sovereignty to designate what city is to be their administrative capital.

As a short background to the U.S. Congressional Bill 1322, it was officially named The Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995. It was introduced by Senator Bob Dole. The then President Clinton did not elect to sign it. One supposed reason was that it would not have been politically expedient during a major push to implement the Oslo Accords that had just been signed a few years prior. Clinton did not want to upset the Muslims and give them any excuse to sabotage the Oslo Accords agreements of 1992 and 1995, etc. Since the Clinton Administration, all U.S. President rather have signed a ‘waiver’ to postpone the transfer of the Embassy through a loophole citing ‘National Security’ reasons. Israel officially declared Jerusalem its sovereign capital after the 6-Day War in 1967 although it is not recognized by most nations on Earth.

What this Congressional Act 1322 did and does is that it represents the will of the American People to politically reinforce Israel’s political, social, cultural and historical claim to the land and its designated capital. However, America in the 1990s was predisposed to Israel’s Biblical claims. Thanks to the Luciferian Agenda, America is now drastically less sympathetic to Israel and its Evangelical friends. Many Bible End Times researchers and scholars believe this is a monumental step in the prophetic timeline of the coming culmination of what still remains to be fulfilled before Jesus’ return. This time marker is of the same caliber of significance as Israel’s birth in 1948, the liberation of Jerusalem in 1967 and the coming rebuilding of the 3rd Temple. These 3 factors are what were destroyed, in that order as foretold by Jesus in the Olivet Discourse and what this researchers believes are to be reconstituted in reverse order and need to be physically present at Jesus’ 2nd coming, as it was in His 1st coming, etc.


The Contention for the Crown

To mark this historical day as to what the ‘heavens declared’ celestially, their does appear to be some unique correspondences in terms of time intervals and the position the planets had between each other that may suggest prophetic nuances. Foremost, on December 6, 2017, the Sun was dead-center in the constellation of Ophiuchus. It is also telling where the Moon was at the time of the signing that President Trump recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. The Moon was in the constellation of Cancer. According to the celestial interpretation of E.W. Bullinger, Cancer denotes among many things a ‘canopy’ or Sukkah as it were. The constellation alludes also to an ‘encircling’ and ‘that which is bound’. If one takes the liberty to prophetically correlate the celestial meaning to the present-day timing of when the declaration of Jerusalem took place celestially, it speaks volumes of the coming geo-political fulfillment of Biblical prophecy. In one aspect, Jerusalem can be seen as Israel’s ‘Sukkah’ or covering that infers the Temple that once stood there.

It connotes the times when the Israelites were ‘covered’ by the Pillar of Fire and Smoke, etc. The meaning of the Moon in Cancer at this time also perhaps speaks of the ‘binding’ that Jerusalem was, is was and will be forever the capital of Israel and of GOD. Notwithstanding, the enemies of Israel will one day ‘encircle’ the City of the King in an attempt to destroy and possess it, mainly by the Muslims through the work of the Luciferian Agenda, etc. As to the Sun in Ophiuchus, it also has many esoteric and Biblical references as it portrays foremost the ‘Cosmic Struggle’ between Jesus, the Messiah and Lucifer who seeks to usurp the Crown, Borealis. This ‘Cosmic Struggle’ mirrors the Earthly struggle for dominion of Jerusalem. Why all the rage, especially from the Muslims? It is because Jerusalem is where the seat of the Crown of the Throne of David that YHVH established is to be and eternally no less. It is because Jerusalem is where the seat of all power and authority will be headquartered with Christ as King during the Millennial Reign. It is to be the ‘Eternal Capital’ or the Creator, YHVH for all eternity, as it is in Heaven presently; the Heavenly Jerusalem.

 

It is as if Christ Jesus is wanting Israel and the world to focus on this segment of the Mazzaroth. Why? It resonates the celestial depiction of the promise of what Christ and Jerusalem are all about. It portrays the epicenter of the ‘Cosmic Contention’ that started in Jerusalem and will end there. This assertion is based on the supposing that the Gate of Eden from where Adam and Eve were expelled was Jerusalem. The struggle ensues because it is the city where Jesus returns to and as the Son of GOD, Jesus took on flesh and blood to become a human to save Humanity from the ravages and consequence of sin, which is mainly Eternal Death. It is Jerusalem where Jesus, the only Savior of the World reconciled the fallen human race of Adam, not the Fallen Angels of Lucifer and much less the Father of Lies. However, in this Cosmic Struggle with the Serpent-Dragon Lucifer, the Messiah of Israel suffered a moral blow to the ‘heel’ metaphorically by Scorpio, ‘The Advisory’ as Satan is described in the Bible and the Great Deceiver. In this ‘Cosmic Struggle’, Scorpio received a mortal blow to the head by Ophiuchus’ foot. This is also depicted by Sagittarius’ arrow piecing the head of Scorpio, which is denoted as mortally wounded by the giant ‘blood’ red Star of Antares.

 

Celestial Time Markers 

This depiction is what was foretold in the very 1st Biblical prophecy given to Humanity since the Garden of Eden with Adam, Eve and Lucifer present after the Fall. Although the Seed of the Woman was promised, ‘He’ would be ‘stung’ by the consequence of their sins, death but by it, would crush the head of the Serpent, Lucifer. Lucifer did ‘sting’ Jesus with death at the Cross of Calvary that the constellation Centaur depicts with the Southern Cross and Lupus, the ‘Victim’. Jesus did indeed become ‘The Victim’ as the Bible describes. The Cross of Calvary in essence became the Altar of Libra. This occurred despite Jesus Himself attesting that He had no sin in Himself, nor did sin, nor could want to do sin, etc.

Although Jesus was the GOD-Man, the book of Hebrews teachers that in all points Jesus was tempted in His humanity and as humans are, yet without sin. For the purposes of the Law, since Jesus was born under the Law in the time of the Law, He chose willingly to take the place of a fallen Humanity by being circumcised and baptized in ‘proxy’ for the 1st Adam. Such acts denoted the ‘cutting-off’ of the sinful flesh and the need for repentance. Moreover, Jesus volunteered to make the substitutionary death for Adam’s race. Thus, Jesus was not an unwilling ‘human sacrifice’ as the types and shadows that unwilling animal sacrifices were and used as instructional aides. For example, throughout the course of recorded history, it has been the similar case when a certain person for either political and/or ideological reasons have been lined-up to be executed by a firing squad.

In some cases, other men have volunteered and allowed to take the place of such ‘condemned’ men. What is also interesting cosmologically the ‘Day Jerusalem became the Capital of Israel’ is that the Sun was also nearing the center of where the Galactic Plane and the Ecliptic intersect. It is near the famous ‘Horse Nebula’ which is really the ‘Eye’ of the Milky Way ‘Serpent’ when seen as a cross-section. The Golden Gate is at this intersection between the Galactic Plane and the Ecliptic. and is perhaps celestially is another prophetic inference This Golden Gate is interestingly also associated with Jerusalem. Old Jerusalem is even famed for its Golden Gate. That Gate led to the connotation of the House of YHVH that was a ‘Gate’ to Heaven by way of the Temple Veil between the Holies. The Eastern Gate is mirrored on Earth, as it is in the Heavens.

It is also where the planet Saturn has been retrograding all this time since the Revelation 12 Sign commenced. The depiction of the planets on the Ecliptic is really a residual of the Revelation 12 Great Sign. In what way?  Out of all the planetary formations during the September 23, 2017 Virgo Sign, Mars is the last planet that is still in Virgo at the time of the ratification of the U.S. Congressional Bill 1322. The Sun will pass this ‘Celestial Gate’ on the Winter Solstice in tandem with Mars finally leaving Virgo. Mars remains still in Virgo until the 10th of December and completely out of the constellation precisely on the Winter Solstice of December 21, which is unique. It was the Golden Gate, also referred to as the Gate of God in Jerusalem that Jesus entered on that Palm Sabbath, not Sunday. According to the book of Zechariah, it will be also the Gate that Jesus will enter through at His 2nd coming. Jesus will come along with His Bride of Christ, the Saints of the entire Church Age having been raptured and glorified.


The Coming Inner-Ring War

The position of the various planets were also very interesting. The positioning of the planets perhaps might very well be linked as a cosmic Sign to the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995 in more ways than one. There were basically 2 sets of planetary alignments that occurred, perhaps as a ‘Double Witness’. There was the Mas-Jupiter-Venus alignment and then there it was the Venus-Sun-Saturn-Mercury alignment. What was unique in both cases is that they both were in approximate phi ratio of distance amongst each other. This goes to show how that even the movements of the heavenly bodies are orchestrated in precise mathematical variables and pertinent to their speed.

Those who study the End Times are excited about this current development dealing with Jerusalem as a further prophetic step in the eventual construction of the 3rd Temple and reconciliation of Israel with their Savior, Jesus. It goes to show that indeed Biblical prophetic events like the recognition of Jerusalem being the capital of Israel by the most powerful nation on Earth, the USA is tied to celestial orchestration as well as being a prophetic step. Perhaps the backlash of the Muslims, the EU, Russia and the rest of the world will allow for a coordinated effort to attack Israel because of it.

This U.S. affirmation of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital scenario could be the catalyst for such a Biblical fulfillment per the Olivet Discourse Theory. It could be the case that the years of preparation of Hamas and Hezbollah aided by Iran, Saudi Arabia and Turkey will trigger the Inner-Ring War against Israel that could usher in the AntiChrist. The following are some unique day counts concerning the December 6, 2017 ratification of the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995. 

U.S. CONGRESS BILL 1322 TO JERUSALEM RECOGNITION

Oct 23, 1995 to Dec 6, 2017 = 8080 days or 22 years, 1 month, 13 days


6-DAY WAR TO JERUSALEM EMBASSY ACT 1322 RECOGNITION

Jun 7, 1967 to Dec 6, 2017 = 18,445 days or 50 years, 5 months, 29 days


ISRAEL INDEPENDENCE TO EMBASSY ACT 1322 RECOGNITION

May 14, 1948 to Dec 6, 2017 = 25,408 days or 69 years, 6 months, 22 days


REV 12 GREAT SIGN TO JERUSALEM EMBASSY RECOGNITION

Sep 23, 2017 to Dec 6, 2017 = 74 days or 2 months, 13 days 

= 1776 hours


This same 1776 hour factor occurs in 2018 that will mark the 70th anniversary of the

‘Fig Tree’ being ‘born’. From Israel’s independence to the Central Bull’s Eye Blood Moon on July 27, 2018 also echoes the ‘Year of Light’ year 5776. Oddly enough, the same hours occur from Israel’s Independence Day to the Central Blood Moon in 2018.


May 14, 2018 to July 27, 2018

= 1776 hours

The Prophetic Crucible
The Psalm 83 War is believed by some to be when the immediate Muslim countries surrounding Israel militarily will attack Israel in hopes of ‘wiping Israel off the map’ and acquiring the land and Jerusalem as their possession. It is the long sought-out

‘Birthright’ of Ishmael to do so. Some Christians believe that this Inner-Ring of Muslim nations will indeed be the Psalm 83 War. It will be the case in which it will allow for the victory of Israel over such Muslims to the point of a demoralization that most likely will also involve the layer of the Isaiah 17 nuclear attack on Damascus. As it is, the Iranian military base set up approximately 30 miles from the Israeli border just south of Damascus will not be tolerated by Israel. Prime Minister Netanyahu has already alerted Putin of Russia, Iran and Syria’s Assad that it is a ‘Red Line’ for Israel.

 

Putin’s assertion that Iran has the legal right to have a military presence near Israel has not helped the situation. With such rhetoric, military strikes have already been carried out by Israel against the Iranian base in which some Iranian serviceman have been reported to have been killed. This corresponding agitation by Israel against Iran who now has a military and common alliance with Turkey and Russian will foment the subsequent Outer-Ring of Muslim nations led by God-Magog or the Russian Federation against Israel per Ezekiel 38. This very serious scenario lends a dire credence to the Isaiah 17 total destruction of Damascus. Many believe that at some point, Israel will feel so threatened by Iran’s nuclear capability that it will preemptively nuke the city that is already virtually uninhabitable and desolate.

This scenario is now based on real live events, even prophetically. Iran now has a military base within striking distance of Israel. There is now a Triple Alliance of Russia-Turkey-Iran. Now the U.S. Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995 – 1322 officially recognized Jerusalem as being Israel’s capital. These geo-political factors are now a game-changer but foremost, they are a Biblical and prophetic game-changer. In terms of the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995, the ratification legally allows the USA to move its Embassy to Jerusalem. What is the big deal in that? It legitimizes Israel’s claim to its ancient capital that King David ruled for 33 years in and in which King Solomon built the Temple of YHVH as a House of Prayer for all the Nations, etc. This scenario will predispose the coming of the AntiChrist and the building of the 3rd Temple in the estimation of this study.

Other Christian historians however, believe that the Psalm 83 War of the Inner-Ring of Muslim nations that attack Israel was already been fulfilled in ancient Biblical times and in more modern times, it occurred during the War of Independence. It has been true that Jerusalem has been attacked and destroyed numerous times throughout its ancient history. However, at no time in its ancient past had all its neighbors attacked Israel, all at the same time. For example, it was either only Egypt, Assyria, or Babylon aside from the nagging Philistines of the Gaza coast. Others may argue then that the 1948 War of Independence was perhaps the Psalm 83 War. Although it was true that in that case, 7 armies of the Muslim nations immediately surrounding Israel did attack her, all at once. The whole world did not see or feel Jerusalem as a ‘Burdensome Stone’ nor was Israel hated of all the nations as it is now.

These 7 Muslim armies were armed to the teeth in Soviet military hardware, the best at the time. The miracle of Israel, only having a mockup army of irregulars, barely an air force of a few outdated World War 2 airplanes and army tanks is that it managed to defeat this mighty orchestrated Muslim onslaught. It was much like Herod trying to kill baby Jesus, Haman trying to commit genocide against Esther’s people, etc. As noted, the major difference is that then, not all the world was against Israel. In fact, the whole world was cheering on and helping out Israel. Many peoples from all nations even went to volunteer to help Israel fight and after the war helped in building-up the infrastructure of the new-born nation, etc. The reason why this researcher believes this present time is different is because it is the total opposite of 1948.

In the present political environment concerning the Middle East and the question of the Palestinians, the whole world now is against Israel, just as Zechariah 12 foretold would be the case in the End of Days. Sadly, even the USA at some point, very soon will also be indifferent to Israel. As the U.S. populace is growing disenchanted with President Trump and his support for the conservative Judeo-Christian voter base, the nation will distance itself ever farther away from such a religious association and support as it sees it being ‘racist, bigoted, Islamophobic’, etc. This U.S. Presidential recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital is perhaps then the building-up of the catalyst that will ignite the rage and war with the Muslims against Israel at some time in the near future. Already Erdogan of Turkey stated, ‘Trump pulled the pin out of the bomb’ and the Muslims should know something about pulling pins from bombs.

He also called for an emergency meeting of the Muslim nations as he also declared that this decision for Jerusalem was ‘a red line for Muslims’. No doubt this will and has energized more the Muslims to rage against Israel having Jerusalem as the recognized capital city where YHVH has only put His name on Earth. It will nonetheless serve to energize the ‘sons of disobedience’ more, both Muslim and non-Muslim saboteurs. Why so much vitriol against Jerusalem? It is because it is the City of the King, King Jesus. It is because Lucifer rages against the plans Jesus has for it. Lucifer and his minions of death cult Secret Societies recognize that it is going to thwart their Great Work. In the meanwhile, the Bible states of such, ‘according to the Ruler of the Kingdom of the Air, the Ruler of the Spirit that is now energizing the Sons of Disobedience’ are Satanically preparing and ‘energizing’ themselves for the coming Inner-Ring Muslim war in the Middle East against Israel.

September 2017 Pyramid alignments and timeframes from blood moon tetrad


Below are links that show the Great Pyramid astrological Alignments that occur around Rosh Hashanah 2017:

http://watchfortheday.org/wpimages/wp2706c3c2.jpg

http://watchfortheday.org/wpimages/wp3b83d143.jpg

Have a look at the interesting numbers in the time frames connected with the blood moon tetrad and 2017 pyramid astrological alignment 
at link below:

http://watchfortheday.org/wpimages/wpfb2cc7fa_0f.jpg

The number 3 according to this link http://www.gods-kingdom-ministries.net/files/8513/7400/9077/Biblical_Meaning_of_Numbers.pdf 
means "Divine Fullness, Perfection - Gimel is a camel in Hebrew. It signifies to be lifted up. Pride is its negative side; being glorified or 
elevated to a position of authority is its positive side.  The number three is the number of divine fullness, completeness, or perfection."  
According to the above link on time frames, there would be 3,333 days between the date of the last red moon in the tetrad and the end 
of the tribulation if the tribulation started at the Jupiter/Virgo astrological line up after Rosh Hashanah.

The number 1260 is equal to 3 1/2 prophetic years or half the time of the seven year tribulation period  It is 3 x 360 days plus 180 days.
It is interesting that that number of days stretches from the beginning of the blood moon tetrad to the Jupiter/Virgo lineup with the Great
Pyramid after Rosh Hoshanah.

Here is a final link that shows another astronomical line up (unrelated to the Great Pyramid) that occurs in 2024 when the Tribulation
would end if it began in 2017.

http://www.rapturewatch.net/apps/forums/topics/show/12930367-the-great-sign-of-revelation-12-occurs-in-2017?page=last

"While perusing through Jupiter’s position among the stars, there was something else that presented itself. On the 9th of Av 2024, Jupiter will 
be in the sign of Taurus. It will be between the horns. The common Hebrew name for Taurus is Shur, which can mean both coming and ruling 
or in other words, the coming judge. In short, Taurus represents the coming governor, Jesus Christ, with his congregation (meaning of Pleiades). 
 
On the day known for Jewish sorrow due to the number of calamities that have fallen on this day, Mars comes into conjunction with Jupiter 
between the horns. Mars, in Hebrew Ma’adim, meaning the Adam, the Red One or the Son of Man. On this day it is believed there will be 60 
days left of the Tribulation. This sign looks to speak of that time when Jesus will shortly return to end the Tribulation with the Church 
accompanying him. 

 No other signs or conjunctions after this at this time come into view. "

The majority of this post comes from Daniel Matson's work, an author who also posts here at fivedoves.  I have been fishing it off the internet 
and been so astonished by it, especially since I am also a long time watcher and only discovered these findings this summer.  It does seem
like we are "short-timers" now as far as the rapture is concerned.  We shall soon see.

“Temple Mount”

Dear Watchers,

Eight days ago the terrorist attack on the Temple Mount on July 14, 2017 came at an important intersection of time. Israel installed metal detectors and assumed more control of the Temple Mount which led to open Jewish Prayers on the mount for the first time in 50 years. From and including that day it is 70 days to the Feast of Trumpets 2017. Here is a short video on the countdown of the Temple Mount, if you have not seen it.

May 7, 2017 The soon coming one world kingdom of the Lord Jesus Christ

The whole world of today is involved in a constant struggle to impose a one world government as the elite try to steer the Nations to relinquish their nationalities and into submitting to a one world government under the rule of a dictator whose body is indwell by Satan.

The struggle can be seen in France today who is electing a president and one of the two running is a globalist versus the other a nationalist.

Whatever the outcome of that election the Bible states that eventually Satan will have his say in implanting this infamous one world government that will last seven years and that will be destroyed at the coming of Jesus Christ to set up His glorious Kingdom beautifully described below by FM Riley.

The Glorious Kingdom of Christ: Part Four


The Glorious
Kingdom of Christ
Part Four
Continued from Part Three

By Pastor F. M. Riley
April 15, 2017
“After this manner therefore pray ye:  Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be Thy name.
Thy kingdom come.  Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven,”
Matthew 6:9-10.

Introduction
Part Three of this series of studies was brought to a close with Christ Jesus entering the glorious millennial Temple as envisioned by Ezekiel in Ezekiel 43:1-7.  This study will resume where the previous study left off…….
God’s Kingdom on Earth
Christ Jesus entering the Millennial Temple, approximately seven years after the end of the Tribulation period,  will perhaps be the most glorious event in human history since the resurrection of the Lord. This event will usher in the Kingdom of Christ on earth, the most wonderful kingdom which will have ever existed on earth in all the history of mankind.  And it will be the Lord’s answer to the longing in the hearts of His own Jewish people throughout the centuries, and the longing and prayers of New Covenant believers in this present dispensation, for God’s Kingdom and will to be “done in earth, as it is in heaven,” Matthew 6:9-10.  Glory to God!  Praise the Lord!  Hallelujah!
For the first time in human history, there will be a government over mankind that will be totally righteous and incorruptible.  The government will be Christ Jesus Himself as King, ruling over all of mankind upon the earth,  then serving under Christ in every position of authority on earth, will be a true New Covenant believer, one who was once saved by grace, born-again” of the Holy Spirit, resurrected and glorified, and who will therefore be sinless and incorruptible, Daniel 4:3; 7:13-14; 7:18; 7:22; 7:27; Zechariah 14:5; 1 Corinthians 15:49; 15:51-58; Philippians 3:20-21; 1 Thessalonians 3:13; 2 Timothy 2:11-12; Revelation 4:4; 5:8-10; 19:13-15; 20:6; 22:3-5.   Glory to God!
Mankind on the earth will finally have a righteous and just government ruling over them, not for just a “term of office,” but for all eternity.  Praise the Lord!
Dear readers, this will guarantee that the corruption that has inevitably slipped into even the best of human governments in the past,  will never happen again in all of the eternal ages to come.  Glory to God!
The “time element” when Christ will enter the Millennial Temple and begin His reign, will be seven years after the end of the Tribulation period, likely at the beginning of the 8th year.  At that time the earth will have been totally cleansed of every wicked and incorrigible unbeliever [Psalm 37:9-10], of every dead body and bone, and of every man made item that might entice anyone still in their natural body into sin, causing them to turn away from serving the Lord, Matthew 13:41-42.
In essence, what happened to Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, causing them to disobey the Lord and bringing the curse of sin upon mankind, will never happen again in all of the eternal ages to come.   From the time the Lord Jesus Christ enters the Millennial Temple to begin His reign, He will be ruling over all earthly kingdoms in absolute righteousness and peace.  Glory to God!
And how will this effect the entire earth and those living upon it?  Let’s go to God’s Word and see…….
GREAT EARTH CHANGES
Topography and Geography…..The land masses of the earth will no longer appear as they do today.  The inspired Word is quite clear that during the Tribulation period, the high towering, snow capped, mountain ranges that we see on the earth today will be shaken down, Psalm 46:2-3; Isaiah 2:12-14; 2:19-21; 41:15; 42:15; 54:10; Jeremiah 4:24; Ezekiel 38:20; Micah 1:4; Nahum 1:5; Habakkuk 3:6.  During this shaking, islands and mountains, and perhaps entire continents, will be moved, Revelation 6:14; 16:20,  This does not mean that there will no longer be any mountains, for there will always be mountains on the earth, but not the extremely high and jagged mountains that we see today.  The debris from the high mountains being shaken down, will literally fill up the deep gashes, canyons, and valleys that are on the earth today, Isaiah 40:4; Luke 3:5.  The surface of the earth will then be mostly gentle rolling hills, absolutely lovely to behold, and just right for the growth of abundant trees, grass, and other vegetation, and for farming and producing the food that redeemed mankind on the earth will need during “the ages to come,” Ephesians 2:7.  The prophetic Scriptures clearly state that the whole earth is going to experience vast changes in topography, geography, and climatic conditions, and become like “the garden of the Lord.” Glory to God!
It appears that the highest mountain left on the earth will then be “the mountain of the Lord’s house,” Mount Zion in Jerusalem, Psalm 2:6; 68:15-16; Isaiah 2:2-3; Micah 4:1-2;  Zechariah 14:10.
Fertility…..The Lord will be preparing the surface of the earth to grow abundant crops to feed those of mankind on the earth still living in their natural bodies.  Oh yes, there will be some redeemed survivors of the Tribulation period, still living on the earth.  Therefore the Lord God will remove the curse that was placed upon the earth after Adam’s sin [Genesis 3:17-18], causing the earth to bring forth abundantly
During the Tribulation period, every volcano on earth will be spewing forth volcanic ash clouds, making terrible living conditions for those left behind on the earth following the rapture.  But Romans 8:28 is still in the Bible, and the Lord does all things well.
Have our readers ever considered that volcanic ash is likely the very best natural fertilizer ever discovered by mankind?  For a year or more after Mt. St. Helens erupted in the state of Washington in 1980, the Washington apples were the largest, sweetest, and juiciest, they had been in years.  I know, for I was pastoring a church there at the time.
Dear readers, we look at the land of Israel today, and it is a dry, arid, desert country, with only a small portion of the land suitable for farming and raising crops.  Even the portion of the land which is farmed today, has to be irrigated in order for the land to produce.  But it was not always this way.
When the Israelites entered the promised land under the leadership of Joshua, it was a land “flowing with milk and honey,” Exodus 3:8; 3:17.  The entire land was covered with trees and abundant vegetation, and the rivers and streams all ran with abundant water.
Probably most of our readers have read the account in Numbers 13,  of Moses sending out men to spy out the land, before the children of Israel entered it.  The inspired Word clearly states that two men cut down “one cluster of grapes,” which was so large and heavy that they had to carry it on a staff between them, 13:23.  That is an example of how fertile the holy land was at that time. But look at it today!  What happened?
The Lord God plainly warned Israel, that if they did not love and serve and obey Him, He would withhold the rains.  Read it for yourself in Deuteronomy 11:16-17.  Israel went into apostasy, and ignored the Lord’s warning, nevertheless the Lord did what He said He would do, 2 Samuel 1:21; 1 Kings 8:35; 2 Chronicles 7:13-14.  It is a historical truth that for centuries, Israel received only enough rain to keep the cactus and other desert plants barely alive.  But it is also a truth, that since the re-establishment of Israel as a nation in 1948, the rainfall in Israel has been steadily increasing with the passing years.  Oh, glory to God!  Praise the Lord!
Water…..During the kingdom of Christ, the Lord God will “….cleave the earth with rivers,” Habakkuk 3:9.
“And there shall be upon every high mountain, and upon every high hill, rivers and streams of waters in the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall,” Isaiah 30:25.  Every presently dry stream and river bed in Israel will once again flow with water; abundant water for producing the crops the people will need for their ever increasing population.  Read Isaiah 33:21, and 35:6.  Glory to God!
And what will be…..
The Earth’s Response to Such Blessings?
REST…..”The whole earth is at rest, and is quiet: they break forth into singing,” Isaiah 14:3-7.
When the Lord Jesus Christ sets up His Kingdom on earth, there will be no more wars, no fighting, no rioting, no rebellion and no wickedness allowed to be practiced, and the earth itself will no longer be used to grow noxious plants, from which wicked men produce alcohol and drugs, which cause men today to cheat and lie and fight and make war.  The earth itself will literally be at rest from the sins of mankind.  And this living earth will respond in rejoicing and singing, Isaiah 35:1-2.
PEACE…..”And He shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many peoples: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more,” Isaiah 2:4; Micah 4:3.
“For ye [Israel] shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands,” Isaiah 55:12.
Fallen mankind’s solution to every major disagreement between nations and peoples has always been to go to war.  But that kind of reasoning will cease forever as Christ Jesus establishes His Kingdom upon the earth.  Immediate correction to any problem between nations and peoples will be the Lord’s solution, for the Scriptures are quite explicit that He will rule “with a rod of iron,” Revelation 2:27; 12:5; 19:15.  Christ Jesus will only have to speak the Word, and the problem will be solved immediately and peacefully.
VEGETATION…..”The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose.
It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing: the glory of Lebanon shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon, they shall see the glory of the Lord, and the excellency of our God,” Isaiah 35:1-2.
“Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to the Lord for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off,” Isaiah 55:13.
Today there are vast areas of the earth’s surface which are nothing but desert, unfit for producing food for mankind, animals, or birds, and mostly worthless.  But when Christ establishes His Kingdom all of this will change.  Streams will break forth in the deserts, and the deserts will become fertile and productive, as they begin to produce vegetation and food for the benefit of mankind and all living creatures.
WATER…..”And there shall be upon every high mountain, and upon every high hill, rivers and streams of waters in the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall,” Isaiah 30:25.
“Then shall the lame man leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness shall the waters break out. and streams in the desert,” Isaiah 35:6.
Fresh water is absolutely necessary to the survival and health of mankind, and all other living creatures.  As I write today, there is great concern among the governments of the world about the depletion and pollution of fresh water sources on the earth.
There is no need for concern about this problem, by those who are true believers in Christ.  Our Lord God knows exactly where the water sources are, and how, and when, to provide the needed water, and He will!  The Scripture reference in Isaiah 30:25 appears to be referring to the time when the battle of Armageddon occurs and all man-made structures on earth are destroyed, at or near the end of the Tribulation period.  If this is correct, then the Lord is going to begin restoring the earth back to prime condition, immediately upon the defeat and destruction of the armies of the anti-christ, and of the incorrigible wicked.  How great is our God and Savior!   Glory to God!
PHYSICAL HEALTH…..”And the inhabitant shall not say, I am sick: the people that dwell therein shall be forgiven their iniquity,” Isaiah 33:24.
Don’t fail to notice that sickness in this Scripture,  is clearly related to the “iniquity” of the people of Israel [33:20-22].  When the Lord God forgives their “iniquity,” then they will no longer experience sickness.
“And I will raise up for them a plant of renown, and they shall be no more consumed with hunger in the land, neither bear the shame of the heathen any more,” Ezekiel 34:29.
“And by the river upon the bank thereof, on this side and on that side, shall grow all trees for meat [food], whose leaf shall not fade, neither shall the fruit thereof be consumed: it shall bring forth new fruit according to his months, because their waters they issued out of the sanctuary: and the fruit thereof shall be for meat [food],  and the leaf thereof for medicine [healing; health], Ezekiel 47:12.
A careful study of the context in which this latter Scripture occurs will reveal that a stream of “living water” [47:9] will begin flowing from beneath the Millennial Temple; that it will become a great river, and that on each side or bank of the river, “the tree of life,” [Genesis 2:9] will once again be planted by the Lord, and caused to grow and produce fruit.  These trees will bear fruit every month, providing an abundance of extremely nutritious food for the people, and the leaves of the trees will be used for medicine [healing; health].
This will guarantee perfect physical health [and more] for every person who eats the fruit from those trees and drinks the water from that river, but it will also bring them…..
SPIRITUAL HEALTH…..”The remnant of Israel shall not do iniquity, nor speak lies; neither shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth: for they shall feed and lie down, and none shall make them afraid,” Zephaniah 3:13.
“But Judah shall dwell for ever, and Jerusalem from generation to generation.
For I will cleanse their blood that I have not cleansed: for the Lord dwelleth in Zion,” Joel 3:20-21.
Dear readers, even many true believers have never given much thought to how we humans acquired a “sin nature.”  Every human being is presently born with such a “sin nature,” whether they are willing to believe it or not, Psalm 58:3; 14:2-3; 53:3;  Ecclesiastes 7:20; Romans 7:18.  But how did we get this “sin nature?”   The inspired Word clearly indicates that we living today inherited it from our parents, and they from their parents, etc., all the way back to Adam himself, Romans 5:12.
Folks, when Adam ate of the “tree of the knowledge of good and evil,” [Genesis 2:16-17], in disobedience to the Lord God,  he received physical and spiritual blood poisoning.  Yes, I said “blood poisoning!”   Sin is real, and it is in the blood stream of mankind, passed on in the birth process from father to child,  Romans 5:12.
Our readers should notice, that immediately after Adam had ate the fruit of the forbidden tree, the Lord God took measures to prevent him from having access to “the tree of life,” Genesis 3:22-24.  Notice also that the Lord God Himself clearly stated that eating the fruit from “the tree of life” would cause Adam to “live for ever,” 3:22.
So what does all of this have to do with our “sin nature”?  Everything!
When the Lord Jesus Christ sets up His Kingdom on the earth, the “tree of life” will be restored to the earth, and to access by the survivors of the Tribulation period.  These survivors will be redeemed people still in their natural bodies.
These “trees of life” will first be caused to grow again in the land of Israel, at the foot of the mount on which the Millennial Temple will be built, Ezekiel 47.  So it will be the redeemed of Israel who first have access to eat the fruit from these trees.  God’s principle at work, Romans 1:16.
However, the Scriptures state quite clearly that the Gentile peoples of the earth will be required to come to Israel every year to observe the Feast of Tabernacles, Zechariah 14:16-21.  Therefore, they too will have access to eat the fruit from these “trees of life,” and drink the “living water” from the river flowing from the Millennial Temple.
And what will be the result of eating the fruit from these trees?  The blood stream of both Jew and Gentile will be cleansed, as stated about Judah in Joel 3:20-21.  The “sin nature;” the tendency to sin, presently in the blood stream of mankind, will be cleansed from the blood and flesh of mankind “for ever.”  Therefore there will be no more sin and no more sickness among mankind on the earth.   Glory to God!  Praise the Lord!  Hallelujah!
Conclusion
Dear readers, there is more; much more, about the coming glorious Kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ that I want to share with His people, and with lost seeking souls.  What a glorious future the Lord God is preparing for redeemed mankind in “the ages to come,” Ephesians 2:4-7.  And unless the reader is a true believer, saved by faith through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, they will miss it all!  Take heed!
The Lord permitting, I want to write and send out at least one more study in this series.  But I am not physically well!  Like the Apostle of old, I feel in my body that my time of departure is drawing near.  I certainly need the prayers of my brothers and sisters in Christ.  Thank each of you so much.  I do hope and pray that our Lord Jesus comes for us all, before anymore of us have to meet the angel of death.
May our gracious Lord add His blessings to this Bible study.
