or Maher-Shalal-Hash-Baz, Part 2
Speed the Spoil, Hasten the Booty
Isaiah 8:11-14, “For Yahweh spoke thus to me with a strong hand, and instructed me that I should not walk in the way of this people, saying: 12“Do not say, ‘A conspiracy,’ concerning all that this people call a conspiracy, nor be afraid of their threats, nor be troubled. 13Yahweh of hosts, Him you shall hallow; let Him be your fear, and let Him be your dread. 14He will be as a sanctuary, but a stone of stumbling and a rock of offense to both the houses of Israel, as a trap and a snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem.” You know, it’s a risky thing to write about something as far out in space as Planet X. How do we know it’s not a hoax or another conspiracy theory? We don’t, yet. What we do is trust Yahweh and look to His Word as absolute truth. Yahweh has His own Conspiracy Theory. It’s called the 7,000-year Plan of Yahweh for the redemption of mankind. Most people do not believe His Conspiracy, but He has been working on His Conspiracy Truth for a long long time, before He invented time. People doubt Yahweh is involved in our world, but you can rest assured, He is very involved in the events and circumstances of our everyday life. Yahweh knows what is going on in every government office at every level. There are no secrets from Him. Proverbs 21:1, “The king’s heart is in the hand of Yahweh, like the rivers of water; He turns it wherever He wishes.”
Ezra 6:22, “And they kept the Feast of Unleavened Bread seven days with joy; for Yahweh made them joyful, and turned the heart of the king of Assyria (Germany) toward them, to strengthen their hands in the work of the house of Yahweh, the Mighty One of Israel.” Yahweh gave us Ezra 6 this morning. Notice how sweetly it fits with Proverbs 21:1 above. The context of Ezra 6 is the time of the restart of the construction and completion of construction of the 2nd Temple, after the Jews had been interrupted after Cyrus let them return to the land in 550-549 BCE. The altar was built and oblation offerings were begun in the fall of 549 BCE (Ezra 3:6-7), but Temple construction was halted for almost 30 years, until the 2nd year of King Darius I Hystaspes, now king of Persia, makes another decree at the beginning of 519 BCE (Ezra 6:6-12) for the Jews to get back to work on the 2nd Temple, which they do and finish it on February 3, 515 BCE (verse 15, Adar 3 that year). Here’s a little better translation of verse 14b, “And they built and finished it (the Temple), according to the commandment of the Mighty One of Israel, and according to the command of Cyrus (II, first decree in his first year in 551 BCE), Darius (I Hystaspes, his decree in 519 BCE), even (or namely) Artaxerxes king of Persia.” Notice Darius I Hystaspes is his personal name, and Artaxerxes is his throne title. For those of you who like the history of all this, read Ezra 7, Ezra began his journey to Jerusalem on Nisan 1, 515 BCE, shortly after the 2nd Temple construction project had been completed. When the 2nd Temple was completed in 515 BCE, Darius I, Artaxerxes, was king of Persia, but notice that in verse 22, quoted above, Darius is called the king of Assyria. Assyria had been wiped out about one hundred years before this (613 BCE), Darius I was now ruling over the former Assyrian lands and peoples, therefore he was also known as the king of Assyria. Folks, Yahweh put the word Assyria in verse 22 instead of the word Persia, so that we, the last generation would pick up on what Yahweh is telling us about the Temple Mount and its services and the new relationship between Israel and Germany.
Why is Ezra 6 exciting to us today? Well, with Darius I, in Ezra and Nehemiah’s day, you see a kind of revival and good will between Assyria and Israel. Well, we know Assyria is Germany today, and now we see a kind of revival and good will between Germany and Israel, punctuated with the signing of several agreements last week (Monday, January 31, 2011 CE) between the two countries. LOOK for the construction of Israel’s oblation altar to take place any day now. The altar can and must be built and begin operating BEFORE Israel begins to construct the “3rd” Temple, on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. Israel already has the modular component parts of the altar standing by, ready to be assembled on the Temple Mount, at a moment’s notice. They say they can be up and operational within one hour. Check out www.templemountfaighful.org and www.templeinstitute.org. Will it happen before Passover/Unleavened Bread in 2011 CE; I am expecting it, are you? Ezra 6:22, “And they kept the Feast of Unleavened Bread seven days with joy; for Yahweh made them joyful, and turned the heart of the king of Assyria (Germany) toward them, to strengthen their hands in the work of the house of Yahweh, the Mighty One of Israel.” The oblation altar and offerings are to recognize Yahweh as owner of all creation, sovereign over all kingdoms on earth. Pray for boldness for our brothers and sisters in Israel, that they will exalt Yahweh again in Jerusalem and get that altar up and running!! Once the altar is operating, Israel can lay the “3rd” Temple foundation! Read Ezra/Nehemiah, the prophetic type for what’s happening in Israel today. Yahweh’s Conspiracy Plan will win out in the end times.
Meditate on that security agreement signed by Germany and Israel last week. Does it make any sense outside of prophecy? 66 years ago, Germany was slaughtering millions of Jews. Has Israel forgotten their own holocaust? The only thing I see that Germany and Israel have in common is their love of money. They both say they want peace, but neither of them knows yet where peace comes from. They are both being deceived into the One World Order. Daniel 9:27 comes to mind, “Then (Monday, January 31, 2011 CE?) he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week (shabuwa, week of sevens); but in the middle of the week (shabuwa, week of sevens) he shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate, even until the consummation, which is determined, is poured out on the desolate.” Friends, I believe we are at the beginning of the end. We all need to learn as much as we can about Israel’s oblation altar and its services. Jim Searcy has a good teaching about the oblation offerings on his web site, www.moresureword.com. As the front page news rolls by, prophecy is blasting on its trumpets. We need to pay attention to what Yahweh is doing, especially in Jerusalem. The book of Daniel is open for us to read and understand today. Shabuwa could be a week of seven years or concern the Feast of Weeks; the agreement could be broken after 3 1/2 years or after 25 days during counting of the Omer between Passover and the Feast of Weeks, Pentecost. Wise Hebrews begin counting 50 days on the Sunday after the weekly Sabbath that occurs during Passover/Unleavened Bread, so Pentecost, or Feast of Shavuot is always on the Sunday, 50 days after that weekly Sabbath. Knowing a little about Yahweh’s Feasts from Leviticus 23 and 25 will help us to understand prophecy that is fulfilling right in front of our face. I fully expect Israel to begin oblation offerings by this Passover, 2011 CE. The now operating Israeli Sanhedrin has Conspiracy Plans to do just that. My heart can hardly take the joy!!
We have already seen enough Scriptures to know that Yahweh is intimately involved in what is happening in Egypt. Did you see the news? President Obama’s foolish foreign policy remarks made King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia so angry, he had a heart attack. Does Yahweh know? Yes. Does He care? Yes. Yahweh is setting up all the nations of the earth for His end-time Conspiracy Plan. All the nations will be ready to attack Yeshua when He shows up. Satan likes to think he is in charge, but he is not, Yahweh uses Satan and his demons for His purposes. See what happens before Yeshua returns: Revelation 16:12-14, “Then the sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up, so that the way of the kings from the east might be prepared. 13And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs coming out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. 14For they are spirits of demons, performing signs, which go out to the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of Yahweh Almighty.” See what happens after the 1,000 year millennial reign of Yeshua: Revelation 20:7-10, “Now when the thousand years have expired, Satan will be released from his prison 8and will go out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle, whose number is as the sand of the sea. 9They went up on the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city. And fire came down from Yahweh out of heaven and devoured them. 10The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.” You see, according to Yahweh’s Conspiracy Truth, He lets the devil think he is in charge, but Yahweh has total control over the devil. Yahweh just keeps setting the devil up for His final destruction. Those who are deceived by the devil’s conspiracy theories, follow the devil into that eternal destruction.
You’ve probably heard of some of the devil’s conspiracy theories, like the theory of evolution, the Illuminati, the Tri-lateral commission, the Bilderberger club. Satan is so vain, he believes those are his original ideas, but Yahweh uses Satan’s ideas to test His saints and try the hearts of men. Today, we see the end-time theories of the New World Order and soon the evil One World Order unfolding before our eyes. Yahweh is stepping back to let the devil take over the whole world, to test men’s heart. Don’t forget, the devil’s One World Order is just a counterfeit of Yahweh’s One World Kingdom. The devil has no original ideas of his own. The kicker is, we humans must pick who we want to rule our one world, Satan or Yahweh (Yeshua). It is time to choose your master. Do you really swallow all that disinformation and marketing hype coming out of the U.N. and all the government and corporate offices around the globe? I’ll take Yahweh’s Conspiracy Truth over your conspiracy theories anyday.
So, let’s investigate some of Yahweh’s Conspiracy Truth about Planet X. First, we’ll reprint the part of the verses we posted the other day, Isaiah 13:5-13, “They come from a far country, from the end of heaven—Yahweh and His weapons of indignation, to destroy the whole land. 6Wail, for the day of Yahweh is at hand! It will come as destruction from the Almighty. 7Therefore all hands will be limp, every man’s heart will melt, 8And they will be afraid. Pangs and sorrows will take hold of them; they will be in pain as a woman in childbirth (See Revelation 12:2); they will be amazed at one another; their faces will be like flames. 9Behold, the (judgment) day of Yahweh comes, cruel, with both wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate; and He will destroy its sinners from it. 10For the stars of heaven and their constellations will not give their light; the sun will be darkened in its going forth, and the moon will not cause its light to shine. (See Revelation 8:12) 11“I will punish the world for its evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; I will halt the arrogance of the proud, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible. 12I will make a mortal more rare than fine gold, a man more than the golden wedge of Ophir. 13Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth will move out of her place, in the wrath of Yahweh of hosts and in the (judgment) day of His fierce anger.” This passage shows Yahweh Himself is going to show up and shake the heavens in the Day of Yahweh, which by now, we all know is Judgment Day. So will He use a Planet X to do the shaking? I don’t know, yet, but it sure looks like it.
Haggai 2:21-23, “Speak to Zerubbabel, governor of Judah, saying: ‘I will shake heaven and earth. 22I will overthrow the throne of kingdoms; I will destroy the strength of the Gentile kingdoms. I will overthrow the chariots and those who ride in them; the horses and their riders shall come down, every one by the sword of his brother. 23‘In that day (Judgment Day),’ says Yahweh of hosts, ‘I will take you, Zerubbabel My servant, the son of Shealtiel,’ says Yahweh, ‘and will make you like a signet ring (Remember the sealing of the saints in Revelation 7?); for I have chosen you,’ says Yahweh of hosts.” Will Yahweh use Planet X to shake the heavens and earth? I don’t know, yet, but I believe He will.
Hebrews 12:26-27, “whose voice then shook the earth; but now He has promised, saying, “Yet once more I shake not only the earth, but also heaven.” 27Now this, “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of those things that are being shaken, as of things that are made, that the things which cannot be shaken may remain.” The Kingdom of Yahweh filled with the saints is all that will remain. But will Yahweh use Planet X to shake the heavens and earth? I don’t know, yet, but I have this gut feeling.
Isaiah 2:12-22, “For the day of Yahweh of hosts shall come upon everything proud and lofty, upon everything lifted up—and it shall be brought low—13Upon all the cedars of Lebanon that are high and lifted up, and upon all the oaks of Bashan; 14Upon all the high mountains, and upon all the hills that are lifted up; 15Upon every high tower, and upon every fortified wall; 16Upon all the ships of Tarshish, and upon all the beautiful sloops. 17The loftiness of man shall be bowed down, and the haughtiness of men shall be brought low; Yahweh alone will be exalted in that day, 18But the idols He shall utterly abolish. 19They shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth, from the terror of Yahweh and the glory of His majesty, when He arises to shake the earth mightily (See Revelation 6:15-17). 20In that day a man will cast away his idols of silver and his idols of gold, which they made, each for himself to worship, to the moles and bats, 21To go into the clefts of the rocks, and into the crags of the rugged rocks, from the terror of Yahweh and the glory of His majesty, when He arises to shake the earth mightily (See Revelation 6:15-17). 22Sever yourselves from such a man, whose breath is in his nostrils; for of what account is he?” Wow, there is going to be a whole lot of shaking going on. Notice that on Judgment Day, Yahweh actually stands up in His anger from His seat on the bench in the heavenly courtroom. We’d best be prepared to throw ourselves prostrate before Him in worship. When He stands up, no one else on this planet CAN stand up, just ask Daniel. Will He use Planet X to shake the earth? I don’t know, but we can ask Him.
Let’s look at Revelation 6:15-17, “And the kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains, 16and said to the mountains and rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! 17For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?”” Notice verse 16, we see the face of Yahweh, our heavenly Father, and we see the wrath of the Lamb, His Son, Yeshua. Both are coming to planet earth to tabernacle with the saints. Heaven is moving to earth, at least for one thousand years. This is a Conspiracy Truth you can rest your eternal salvation on.
Psalm 46:2-3, “Therefore we will not fear, even though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; 3Though its waters roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with its swelling.” Read all of Psalm 46, Yahweh does not need to use a Planet X, but He can if He wants to.
Psalm 83:13-15, “O my Great One, make them like the whirling dust, like the chaff before the wind! 14As the fire burns the woods, and as the flame sets the mountains on fire, 15So pursue them with Your tempest, and frighten them with Your storm.” Does Yahweh need Planet X to cause severe weather on earth? No. But physics tells us that when another large body enters our solar system, earth is affected. Severe weather has intensified since the big earthquake in Southeast Asia in 2004. Planet X is getting closer to earth. We haven’t seen anything yet. You think this winter has been cold? Wait till the sun and moon go dark. . .
Isaiah 24:17-23, “Fear and the pit and the snare are upon you, O inhabitant of the earth. 18And it shall be that he who flees from the noise of the fear shall fall into the pit, and he who comes up from the midst of the pit shall be caught in the snare; for the windows from on high are open, and the foundations of the earth are shaken. 19The earth is violently broken, the earth is split open, the earth is shaken exceedingly. 20The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall totter like a hut; its transgression shall be heavy upon it, and it will fall, and not rise again. 21It shall come to pass in that day that Yahweh will punish on high the host of exalted ones, and on the earth the kings of the earth. 22They will be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit, and will be shut up in the prison; after many days they will be punished. 23Then the moon will be disgraced and the sun ashamed; for Yahweh of hosts will reign on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem and before His elders, gloriously.” The earth reeling to and fro like a drunkard sounds like a flyby to me. Planet X will come close enough and is large enough to violently break the earth. Apparently, Yahweh will use a Planet X to break the earth, to break men’s hearts, so He can save a remnant. His Conspiracy Truth will come to pass. You can bank your salvation on it.
Isaiah 40:4-5, “Every valley shall be exalted and every mountain and hill brought low; the crooked places shall be made straight and the rough places smooth; 5The glory of Yahweh shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together (satellite and cable TV, internet); for the mouth of Yahweh has spoken.” Do you think the mainstream media will be able to broadcast pictures of Planet X before our communications systems are destroyed? I hope so.
Ezekiel 38:19-23, “For in My jealousy and in the fire of My wrath I have spoken: ‘Surely in that day there shall be a great earthquake in the land of Israel, 20so that the fish of the sea, the birds of the heavens, the beasts of the field, all creeping things that creep on the earth, and all men who are on the face of the earth shall shake at My presence. The mountains shall be thrown down, the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.’ 21I will call for a sword against Gog (Russia, the northern hordes) throughout all My mountains,” says Sovereign Yahweh. “Every man’s sword will be against his brother. 22And I will bring him to judgment with pestilence and bloodshed; I will rain down on him, on his troops, and on the many peoples who are with him, flooding rain, great hailstones, fire, and brimstone. 23Thus I will magnify Myself and sanctify Myself, and I will be known in the eyes of many nations. Then they shall know that I am Yahweh.”’” Revelation 6:12-17, “I looked when He opened the sixth seal, and behold, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became like blood. 13And the stars of heaven fell to the earth, as a fig tree drops its late figs when it is shaken by a mighty wind. 14Then the sky receded as a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island was moved out of its place. 15And the kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains, 16and said to the mountains and rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! 17For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?”” Planet X may not be the sixth seal, but it sure could cause the sixth seal’s effects.
Micah 1:3-4, “For behold, Yahweh is coming out of His place; He will come down and tread on the high places of the earth. 4The mountains will melt under Him, and the valleys will split like wax before the fire, like waters poured down a steep place.” Nahum 1:5, “The mountains quake before Him, the hills melt, and the earth heaves at His presence, yes, the world and all who dwell in it.” I wonder, will we know the difference between a Planet X flyby and the descent of the Kingdom of Heaven coming to earth? Heaven is moving to earth. The King is coming to set up shop in Jerusalem. It will be an earth-shaking and earth-changing event. Don’t miss it. Move over anti-messiah, pope, and the rest of you beeastly kings.
Haggai 2:6-7, “For thus says Yahweh of hosts: ‘Once more (it is a little while) I will shake heaven and earth, the sea and dry land; 7and I will shake all nations, and they shall come to the Desire of All Nations, and I will fill this temple (His body) with glory,’ says Yahweh of hosts.” Yahweh will shake us down to nothing, trying to shake some sense into us, so we’ll choose Him as our King. I’m glad He’ll cut the time short, I get dizzy easily.
Revelation 11:13, “In the same hour there was a great earthquake, and a tenth of the city fell. In the earthquake seven thousand people were killed, and the rest were afraid and gave glory to the Mighty One of heaven.” Everything Yahweh does is to bring glory to Himself, because He is worthy of all glory and praise. Man’s glory is rapidly fading away.
Revelation 16:17-21, “Then the seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and a loud voice came out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, “It is done!” 18And there were noises and thunderings and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such a mighty and great earthquake as had not occurred since men were on the earth. 19Now the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell. And great Babylon was remembered before Yahweh, to give her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His wrath. 20Then every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. 21And great hail from heaven fell upon men, each hailstone about the weight of a talent. Men blasphemed Yahweh because of the plague of the hail, since that plague was exceedingly great.” Like they say, it ain’t over till it’s over, but when it’s over it’s over. Please repent today, give your life to Yeshua, and follow Yahweh’s Conspiracy Truth!
