Isaiah 24, “Behold, Yahweh makes the earth empty and makes it waste, distorts its surface and scatters abroad its inhabitants. 2And it shall be: as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the creditor, so with the debtor. 3The land shall be entirely emptied and utterly plundered, for Yahweh has spoken this word. 4The earth mourns and fades away, the world languishes and fades away; the haughty people of the earth languish. 5The earth is also defiled under its inhabitants, because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance (Sabbath to Sunday), broken the everlasting covenant (pick-a-sin). 6Therefore the curse has devoured the earth, and those who dwell in it are desolate. Therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned (flyby or nuclear warfare), and few men are left. 7The new wine fails, the vine languishes, all the merry-hearted sigh. 8The mirth of the tambourine ceases, the noise of the jubilant ends, the joy of the harp ceases. 9They shall not drink wine with a song; strong drink is bitter to those who drink it. 10The city of confusion (Babylon) is broken down; every house is shut up, so that none may go in. 11There is a cry for wine in the streets, all joy is darkened, the mirth of the land is gone. 12In the city desolation is left, and the gate is stricken with destruction. (Many cities in America are bankrupt, not just the states and the federal government.) 13When it shall be thus in the midst of the land among the people, It shall be like the shaking of an olive tree (all Israel will be tested, Judah and Ephraim, modern Israel, America and the British family of nations), like the gleaning of grapes when the vintage is done. (See Revelation 14:18-20) 14They shall lift up their voice, they shall sing; for the majesty of Yahweh they shall cry aloud from the sea (of humanity, see Revelation 15, it’s time to sing the song of Moses). 15Therefore glorify Yahweh in the dawning light, the name of Yahweh Almighty of Israel in the coastlands of the (Mediterranean) sea. 16From the ends of the earth we have heard songs: “Glory to the righteous!” but I said, “I am ruined, ruined! Woe to me! The treacherous dealers have dealt treacherously, indeed, the treacherous dealers have dealt very treacherously.” (See Revelation 18) 17Fear 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 (The books of prophecy are open for our understanding today, just as the prophesied events unfold and fulfill daily.), and the foundations of the earth are shaken (flyby, earthquakes, volcanoes). 19The earth is violently broken, the earth is split open, the earth is shaken exceedingly (flyby, earthquakes, volcanoes). 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. (A flyby can cause this reeling to and fro, it’s called precession or wobble, spring can become fall or vice versa, in an instant.) 21It shall come to pass in that day (Judgment Day) that Yahweh will punish on high the host of exalted ones, and on the earth the kings of the earth. (Nobody will escape Judgment Day.) 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. (Yahweh has been collecting evil kings of the earth for 6,000 years in a pit, waiting for their final destruction. Their wait is nearly over.) 23Then the moon will be disgraced and the sun ashamed (The Planet X flyby will cause so much disruption on earth, like earthquakes and volcanoes, that the sun and moon will be darkened. Isa. 13:10; Mat. 24:29; Rev. 6:12); for Yahweh of hosts will reign on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem and before His elders, gloriously.” Yeshua’s Millennial Kingdom on earth will soon be established in Jerusalem. This is Second Coming language. It won’t be long now. Look up for your redemption does indeed draw neigh.
Today, Friday, February 25, 2011, U.S., British, and European military “advisers” are on the ground in eastern Libya. I’m sure they are there to protect the oil export terminal in Benghazi, but officially they are trying to train the Libyan rebels into a formidable force against Qaddafi’s crumbling regime. There will be wars to the end of time, but one of these conflicts is going to trigger World War III. Recall your history, how many lives were lost only one generation ago fighting over North Africa in World War II? How many times did Tripoli or Tobruk pass from axis to allied to axis to allied hands? Until we learn from history, we are doomed to repeat it. Now we just add the city of Benghazi in the Cyrenaica region of northeast Libya to the list. Yahweh is going to desolate the earth, it’s beginning to happen now. What does the last part of Isa. 24:6 say? “Few men are left.” By the time Yeshua returns, there will not be very many humans left on this planet. He is coming to exterminate His own creation. You don’t have to believe it, but you do have to experience it.
Recently the media announced that we will pass the 7 billion population mark this year of 2011 CE. That notice pricked my memory; I recalled reading a report from about 20 years ago that stated our world could sustain approximately 7 billion humans indefinitely. That is the number of equilibrium, population stability. In the March, 2011, Midnight Call magazine, p. 38, they state that Brazil has between 300 to 400 million hectares of arable land, south of the Amazon jungle, in the cerrado (savannah). If Brazil could put much of that land into farms, they could feed most of the world by themselves. Yahweh has provided us with the resources to take care of humanity, but because of sin and greed, we will be judged before we have a chance to find out if Brazil can fulfill their calling to meet the world’s rising food need. Luke 21:25-28, “And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring; 26men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 27Then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.” Many will be fainting from fear over the next couple years, but saints, you don’t have to fear. Yeshua is our peace, He left peace for us as a gift from Him, John 14:27, “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” Fear not, because Yeshua is going to return bodily to earth in great glory sooner rather than later.
How many of you remember that Haiti earthquake from January, 2010? Did you hear about the angel of the Lord visiting the little boy trapped in a collapsed building? The angel fed and watered that little fella for several days. But do you recall what he told to the boy? The Haiti quake was the beginning. Friends, in biblical chronology, 2010 was the first year of the current sabbatical cycle. According to www.danielstimeline.com 2010 hosted the 63rd Feast of Weeks of Daniel 9:24-27. We could possibly be in the last seven years known as the tribulation. The last 3 ½ years of that time period is known as the Great Tribulation. It is no coincidence that these events and tribulation years are following the Sabbatical cycle established in the year of creation. What I’m trying to understand now is why Daniel’s 70th Feast of Weeks is in the year AFTER the 7th year of the Great Tribulation. Could it be that the 70th Feast of Weeks of Daniel is in the FIRST year of Yeshua’s Millennial Kingdom reign on earth? That would make 2017 CE the 8th year of the current Sabbatical cycle, the year of New Beginnings, as well as the 1st year of the next Sabbatical cycle. It does make sense from biblical numerology. I can hardly contain myself waiting to see what unfolds in 2016 and 2017 CE!!
I hope and pray that you are as excited as I am to watch the end time events unfold before our eyes. You should mark down the little boy’s close encounter at the Haiti quake with the angel of the Lord in January 2010. You should mark down the signing of the security agreement between Germany and Israel on January 31, 2011 CE; both events could prove significantly prophetic. The next big event may be the trigger pull in the Middle East launching what may turn out to be World War III. We are going to experience a Planet X type of flyby in our solar system in our lifetime. We are the last generation of humans, we are going to see these prophetic events come to pass. Most of us are going to die during the Tribulation or Great Tribulation. Martyrdom is a Christian’s way of life, get used to it. The joy of Resurrection Day will carry you through anything the enemy of Messiah can throw at you.
