Israel Will Be Justified
ISRAEL WILL BE JUSTIFIED
Isaiah 45:15-25, “Truly You are Yahweh, who hide Yourself,
O Mighty One of Israel, the Savior!
16 They shall be ashamed
And also disgraced, all of them;
They shall go in confusion together,
Who are makers of idols.
17 But Israel shall be saved by Yahweh
With an everlasting salvation;
You shall not be ashamed or disgraced
Forever and ever.
18 For thus says Yahweh,
Who created the heavens,
Who is Almighty,
Who formed the earth and made it,
Who has established it,
Who did not create it in vain,
Who formed it to be inhabited:
“I am Yahweh, and there is no other.
19 I have not spoken in secret,
In a dark place of the earth;
I did not say to the seed of Jacob,
‘Seek Me in vain’;
I, Yahweh, speak righteousness,
I declare things that are right.
20 “Assemble yourselves and come;
Draw near together,
You who have escaped from the nations.
They have no knowledge,
Who carry the wood of their carved image,
And pray to a mighty one that cannot save.
21 Tell and bring forth your case;
Yes, let them take counsel together.
Who has declared this from ancient time?
Who has told it from that time?
Have not I, Yahweh?
And there is no other Mighty One besides Me,
A just Mighty One and a Savior;
There is none besides Me.
22 “Look to Me, and be saved,
All you ends of the earth!
For I am Yahweh, and there is no other.
23 I have sworn by Myself;
The word has gone out of My mouth in righteousness,
And shall not return,
That to Me every knee shall bow,
Every tongue shall take an oath.
24 He shall say,
‘Surely in Yahweh I have righteousness and strength.
To Him men shall come,
And all shall be ashamed
Who are incensed against Him.
25 In Yahweh all the descendants of Israel
Shall be justified, and shall glory.’”
Just so you know, I’m not just talking about the Jews from the tribe of Judah over in the modern State of Israel. I’m talking about the whole house of Israel, all twelve tribes, scattered throughout the earth.
Lots of people are noticing the disasters around the globe, and now especially in America. These disasters are NOT the wrath of Yahweh, there are just the beginnings of sorrows, or birthpangs. When Yahweh’s wrath shows up, all will know it. Whole cities and whole nations will be obliterated in an instant. He may or may not choose to use nuclear war to punish humans. Right now, Yahweh’s punishments coming on the earth in the form of natural disasters are simply to correct His children, to cause us to turn to Him in repentance and faith for salvation. Yahweh is NOT punishing individuals at this time, but He is beginning to punish nations for not turning in reliance on Him.
Nahum 1:2-15, “Yahweh is jealous, and Yahweh avenges;
Yahweh avenges and is furious.
Yahweh will take vengeance on His adversaries,
And He reserves wrath for His enemies;
3 Yahweh is slow to anger and great in power,
And will not at all acquit the wicked.
Yahweh has His way
In the whirlwind and in the storm (hurricanes and tornadoes),
And the clouds are the dust of His feet.
4 He rebukes the sea and makes it dry,
And dries up all the rivers.”
Many lakes and rivers across this earth are drying up.
“Bashan and Carmel wither,
And the flower of Lebanon wilts.
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.”
Have we had a few nasty earthquakes lately?
“6 Who can stand before His indignation?
And who can endure the fierceness of His anger?
His fury is poured out like fire,
And the rocks are thrown down by Him.
7 Yahweh is good,
A stronghold in the day of trouble;
And He knows those who trust in Him.”
One of the keys of the kingdom is to be known BY Yahweh.
“8 But with an overflowing flood
He will make an utter end of its place,
And darkness will pursue His enemies.”
Heard about the floods on the news? The mighty Mississippi River is not as mighty as He who created her.
“9 What do you conspire against Yahweh?
He will make an utter end of it.
Affliction will not rise up a second time.
10 For while tangled like thorns,
And while drunken like drunkards,
They shall be devoured like stubble fully dried.
11 From you comes forth one
Who plots evil against Yahweh,
A wicked counselor.
12Thus says Yahweh:
“Though they are safe, and likewise many,
Yet in this manner they will be cut down
When he passes through.
Though I have afflicted you,
I will afflict you no more;
13 For now I will break off his yoke from you,
And burst your bonds apart.”
14 Yahweh has given a command concerning you:
“Your name shall be perpetuated no longer.
Out of the house of your mighty ones
I will cut off the carved image and the molded image.
I will dig your grave,
For you are vile.”
15 Behold, on the mountains
The feet of him who brings good tidings,
Who proclaims peace!
O Judah, keep your appointed feasts (includes Sabbath),
Perform your vows.
For the wicked one shall no more pass through you;
He is utterly cut off.”
Of course, the most vile person is Satan himself, but he works through humans and their evil civil governments. Satan is working to destroy humanity. Yahweh punishes humanity to bring us to repentance unto salvation of our souls. Many more folks are going to suffer over the next weeks, months and years, but Yahweh will finally cut off Satan and bind him for 1,000 years. Until then, we are going to have trouble, tribulation, even great tribulation. It is time for all humanity, especially Yahweh’s children, to fall down and worship Yahweh and repent and turn to Him for salvation and safety and protection. Yahweh has promised to keep his children safe during the coming Great Tribulation, Luke 21:36, Revelation 12:6, etc.
Today, this moment, is the Christian’s duty to humble himself before Yahweh and repent of his own sins and the sins of his people and leaders. We have sinned greatly against Yahweh. The nations of the world plot against Him. He won’t put up with it forever. There is a limit to His longsuffering with mankind.
Isaiah 57, “The righteous perishes,
And no man takes it to heart;
Merciful men are taken away,
While no one considers
That the righteous is taken away from evil.
2 He shall enter into peace;
They shall rest in their beds,
Each one walking in his uprightness.
3 “But come here,
You sons of the sorceress,
You offspring of the adulterer and the harlot!
4 Whom do you ridicule?
Against whom do you make a wide mouth
And stick out the tongue?
Are you not children of transgression,
Offspring of falsehood,
5 Inflaming yourselves with mighty ones under every green tree,
Slaying the children in the valleys,
Under the clefts of the rocks?
6 Among the smooth stones of the stream
Is your portion;
They, they, are your lot!
Even to them you have poured a drink offering,
You have offered a grain offering.
Should I receive comfort in these?
7 “On a lofty and high mountain
You have set your bed;
Even there you went up
To offer sacrifice.
8 Also behind the doors and their posts
You have set up your remembrance;
For you have uncovered yourself to those other than Me,
And have gone up to them;
You have enlarged your bed
And made a covenant with them;
You have loved their bed,
Where you saw their nudity.
9 You went to the king with ointment,
And increased your perfumes;
You sent your messengers far off,
And even descended to Sheol.
10 You are wearied in the length of your way;
Yet you did not say, ‘There is no hope.’
You have found the life of your hand;
Therefore you were not grieved.
11 “And of whom have you been afraid, or feared,
That you have lied
And not remembered Me,
Nor taken it to your heart?
Is it not because I have held My peace from of old
That you do not fear Me?
12 I will declare your righteousness
And your works,
For they will not profit you.
13 When you cry out,
Let your collection of idols deliver you.
But the wind will carry them all away,
A breath will take them.
But he who puts his trust in Me shall possess the land,
And shall inherit My holy mountain.”
14 And one shall say,
“Heap it up! Heap it up!
Prepare the way,
Take the stumbling block out of the way of My people.”
15 For thus says the High and Lofty One
Who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy:
“I dwell in the high and holy place,
With him who has a contrite and humble spirit,
To revive the spirit of the humble,
And to revive the heart of the contrite ones.
16 For I will not contend forever,
Nor will I always be angry;
For the spirit would fail before Me,
And the souls which I have made.
17 For the iniquity of his covetousness
I was angry and struck him;
I hid and was angry,
And he went on backsliding in the way of his heart.
18 I have seen his ways, and will heal him;
I will also lead him,
And restore comforts to him
And to his mourners.
19 “I create the fruit of the lips:
Peace, peace to him who is far off and to him who is near,”
“And I will heal him.”
20 But the wicked are like the troubled sea,
When it cannot rest,
Whose waters cast up mire and dirt.
21 “There is no peace,”
Says my Mighty One, “for the wicked.””
Watch and pray, repent and believe in Yeshua unto salvation. Follow only Yahweh, not yourself, your idols, or the devil. Look to Yahweh for your healing and deliverance, for there is salvation in no one else. Christian, as the world around you plunges into the darkness of paganism and occultism, this is your opportunity to rise and shine for Yahweh! Command everyone around you to repent and turn to Yahweh in faith, or they will be doomed to the same fate as Satan, burning crisply in the lake of fire for all eternity.
