Ezekiel 36, “And you, son of man, prophesy to the mountains (government and spiritual leaders) of Israel, and say, ‘O mountains (government and spiritual leaders) of Israel, hear the word of Yahweh! 2Thus says Sovereign Yahweh: “Because the enemy (Palestinians, Nation of Islam) has said of you, ‘Aha! The ancient heights have become our possession,’”’ 3therefore prophesy, and say, ‘Thus says Sovereign Yahweh: “Because they made you desolate and swallowed you up on every side, so that you became the possession of the rest of the (United) nations, and you are taken up by the lips of talkers and slandered by the people (of the Gentile nations)”—4therefore, O mountains (government and spiritual leaders) of Israel, hear the word of Sovereign Yahweh! Thus says Sovereign Yahweh to the mountains, the hills, the rivers, the valleys, the desolate wastes, and the cities that have been forsaken, which became plunder and mockery to the rest of the (Muslim) nations all around—5therefore thus says Sovereign Yahweh: “Surely I have spoken in My burning jealousy against the rest of the (Muslim) nations and against all Edom (Palestinians), who gave My land to themselves as a possession, with wholehearted joy and spiteful minds, in order to plunder its open country.”’”
Friends, Yahweh wrote today’s headlines over 2,600 years ago through our beloved prophet Ezekiel. Ezekiel 36 is a love letter to my brothers Ephraim and Judah. Take heart, Yahweh sees and knows what the evil nations of the world are conspiring against His people. The Palestinians are trespassers and squatters and Yahweh is not afraid to declare it openly. They are attempting to steal Yahweh’s Holy Land for themselves and their pagan children. From what I can gather in Ezekiel 36, Yahweh’s patience with the Gentile nations of the world is about over. The United Nations, the Nation of Islam, and all the Gentile nations of the world continue to blaspheme Yahweh, and slander, libel, demonize, and delegitimize Israel. Hurricane Katrina, the Gulf Oil disaster, the Japan earthquake, are all the direct result of foolish nations speaking against Yahweh’s people in His land. Yahweh has put a hook in the jaws of the nations to draw them in hard against Israel. They are all being set up, they just don’t know it, yet. He will crush them all in an instant in His time. There is an appointed day on His calendar. I would not want to be a lost Ishmaelite on this planet for all the wealth of this dying world, or for 70 virgins in the next. The tenth plague was a laser targeted judgment pronounced by Yahweh against the firstborn of Egypt. Moses will be back on earth again soon. It’s very possible Yahweh will let him once again bring this plague on the firstborn. Only this time it will be on the firstborn of Abraham, Ishmael, the Arabs of our wicked world. Ephraim and Judah will never have peace in the Holy Land of Yahweh, as long as the firstborn is trying to usurp Israel’s ownership and authority to possess the Promised Land. There are only two names on the Deed of Trust to the Holy Land, Yahweh’s and Israel’s. No matter what the nations of the world try to do to get and keep the Holy Land, they won’t stay there much longer. Yahweh created it, He gave it to the children of Israel as our inheritance through the promised son Isaac, NOT ISHMAEL! No one else gets it, unless they get grafted into the commonwealth of Israel. Read the Deed. There are no fine print clauses making any exceptions to His promises to spiritual Israel. It’s one covenant Deed of Trust spoken by Yahweh’s grace and received by Abraham through faith, sealed in the blood of the Messiah of Israel. One Yahweh, one faith, one covenant, Genesis to Revelation, and no one gets to receive any of the promises in the Deed of Trust Covenant until all of Israel, Judah and Ephraim, come together in this faith at the end of time. Well, it’s time.
“6“Therefore prophesy concerning the land of Israel, and say to the mountains, the hills, the rivers, and the valleys, ‘Thus says Sovereign Yahweh: “Behold, I have spoken in My jealousy and My fury, because you have borne the shame of the (United) nations.” 7Therefore thus says Sovereign Yahweh: “I have raised My hand in an oath that surely the (Muslim) nations that are around you shall bear their own shame. 8But you, O mountains (government and spiritual leaders) of Israel, you shall shoot forth your branches and yield your fruit to My people Israel, for they (Ephraim and Judah) are about to come. 9For indeed I am for you, and I will turn to you, and you shall be tilled and sown. 10I will multiply men upon you, all the house of Israel, all of it (Judah and Ephraim); and the cities shall be inhabited and the ruins rebuilt. 11I will multiply upon you man and beast; and they shall increase and bear young; I will make you inhabited as in former times, and do better for you than at your beginnings. Then you shall know that I am Yahweh. 12Yes, I will cause (Ephraimite, Gentile, and Jewish) men to walk on you, My people Israel; they (Ephraimite, Gentile, and Jewish men) shall take possession of you, and you shall be their inheritance; no more shall you bereave them of children.””
Christian, Jewish, Gentile believer in Yahweh, Israel is your inheritance! I pray daily that our brothers in Israel will open the borders of the Holy Land to ALL of Yahweh’s people. We, the wild olive branch of non-Jewish believers, have been grafted into the natural tree of Israel. We belong in the Holy Land, it is our home, as well as our Jewish brothers’. I pray we don’t have to wait until Judah turns to her Messiah before we can make aliyah to Israel, but we may have to. So I pray daily that Judah will turn to her Messiah, Yeshua Ha Mashiach. The timing of our history together is in Yahweh’s hands, but Holy Spirit of Yahweh, you can make it happen today!
“13‘Thus says Sovereign Yahweh: “Because they (United Nations) say to you, ‘You devour men and bereave your nation of children,’ 14therefore you shall devour men no more, nor bereave your nation anymore,” says Sovereign Yahweh. 15Nor will I let you hear the taunts of the (United) nations anymore, nor bear the reproach of the (Muslim) peoples anymore, nor shall you cause your nation to stumble anymore,” says Almighty Yahweh.’””
I ask my brother Judah to forgive me for using Yahweh’s name like I do, I know you all don’t like to speak His name, because you believe it is too holy to utter. His name is holy, but I use it like I do for many reasons. One is that it is His name, the great holy name of our Heavenly Father. Secondly, I use it to distinguish His name from the profane word god, which the world tends to use, thus confusing Yahweh with the likes of Allah, a big fat arrogant Muslim demon. The god of Islam, Allah, is NOT the Mighty One of Heaven. Eat your heart out, Allah, you little weanie. Repent Muslim and turn to Yeshua, the Mighty One of Heaven and earth. Repent Judah and turn to Yeshua, the King of Israel. Repent Christian and turn to Yeshua, your Lion of the Tribe of Judah. All the rest of you pagan, heathen peoples, repent and turn to Yeshua, the Savior of the cosmos.
“16Moreover the word of Yahweh came to me, saying: 17“Son of man, when the house of Israel dwelt in their own land, they defiled it by their own ways and deeds; to Me their way was like the uncleanness of a woman in her customary impurity. 18Therefore I poured out My fury on them for the blood they had shed on the land, and for their idols with which they had defiled it. 19So I scattered them among the nations, and they were dispersed throughout the countries; I judged them according to their ways and their deeds. 20When they came to the nations, wherever they went, they profaned My holy name—when they said of them, ‘These are the people of Yahweh, and yet they have gone out of His land.’ 21But I had concern for My holy name, which the house of Israel had profaned among the nations wherever they went.”
I told you it was His Land. All you trespassers and squatters, repent and turn to the Mighty One of Jacob, or get off Yahweh’s land! You’ve been notified and forewarned. Deal with it.
“22“Therefore say to the house of Israel, ‘Thus says Sovereign Yahweh: “I do not do this for your sake, O house of Israel, but for My holy name’s sake, which you have profaned among the nations wherever you went. 23And I will sanctify My great name, which has been profaned among the (United) nations, which you have profaned in their midst; and the (United) nations shall know that I am Yahweh,” says Sovereign Yahweh, “when I am hallowed in you before their eyes. 24For I will take you from among the (gentile) nations, gather you out of all countries, and bring you into your own land. 25Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean; I will cleanse you from all your filthiness and from all your idols. 26I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. 27I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgments and do them. 28Then you shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; you shall be My people, and I will be your Mighty One. 29I will deliver you from all your uncleannesses. I will call for the grain and multiply it, and bring no famine upon you. 30And I will multiply the fruit of your trees and the increase of your fields, so that you need never again bear the reproach of famine among the (United) nations. 31Then you will remember your evil ways and your deeds that were not good; and you will loathe yourselves in your own sight, for your iniquities and your abominations. 32Not for your sake do I do this,” says Sovereign Yahweh, “let it be known to you. Be ashamed and confounded for your own ways, O house of Israel!””
Dearest Israel, all of humanity, all of human history, hinges on your response to Yahweh’s love letter to you in Ezekiel 36. You are in joint ownership and joint tenancy in the Holy Land of Yahweh. You are His people, let no one tell you otherwise. We are anxiously waiting for you to repent of whatever Yahweh lays on your heart to repent of, for your own sins and for the sins of your nation. Then turn to Yahweh with your whole heart and watch Him bring 6,000 years of human misery to an end by sending His Son, Yeshua Ha Mashiach, back to this planet to establish His Messianic Kingdom for the next 1,000 bountiful years! We wait for you and He waits for you. It is your decision, your choice, as it always has been.
“33‘Thus says Sovereign Yahweh: “On the day that I cleanse you from all your iniquities, I will also enable you to dwell in the cities, and the ruins shall be rebuilt. 34The desolate land shall be tilled instead of lying desolate in the sight of all who pass by. 35So they will say, ‘This land that was desolate has become like the garden of Eden; and the wasted, desolate, and ruined cities are now fortified and inhabited.’ 36Then the (Muslim) nations which are left all around you shall know that I, Yahweh, have rebuilt the ruined places and planted what was desolate. I, Yahweh, have spoken it, and I will do it.””
There is a day marked on Yahweh’s calendar when He knows you will turn to your Messiah. Let me introduce you to Him, His name is Yeshua, your Jewish big Brother. There is nothing He wants more than to save you from your sins and lead you to the still waters of life, flowing from His throne. He is ready to set up His throne on the Holy Mount in Jerusalem, are you ready to invite Him to do so? Notice in Zecharia 14:4 that He will not enter Jerusalem when He returns, but will land on the Mount of Olives. Yeshua is a perfect Gentleman, He will not enter old Jerusalem until you are ready to declare, “Blessed is He Who comes in the Name of Yahweh!” But you don’t have to wait until He splits the Mount of Olives before you give your life to Him. You can repent and ask Him to save you right now, today.
“37‘Thus says Sovereign Yahweh: “I will also let the (Judah and Ephraim) house of Israel inquire of Me to do this for them: I will increase their men like a flock. 38Like a flock offered as holy sacrifices, like the flock at Jerusalem on its feast days, so shall the ruined cities be filled with flocks of men. Then they shall know that I am Yahweh.”’””
He desires to celebrate the holy Feasts in Jerusalem with you more than you want Him to, so please ask Him to do this for you today. He’s asking you to ask Him, so please don’t delay. I’m tired, I want to come home to Israel. Trust me, I want Moses and Elijah to show up at Passover just as much as you do. It’s time.
Celebrating the Feast,
