YAHWEH INVADES JUDAH FROM HEAVEN
Isaiah 2, “The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem.”
Notice Isaiah 2:1, Isaiah saw the word, he saw Yeshua! This word came to Isaiah in the Person of Yeshua HaMashiach Himself. That’s a living vision! Also, notice that this vision is specifically about Judah and Jerusalem. Judah is the Jews occupying the modern State of Israel. This vision is not talking about the lost 10 tribes or the rest of the nation of Israel. This vision is not about Ephraim (Great Britain, et al) or Manasseh (America).
“2 Now it shall come to pass in the latter days (today, in the 21st century)
That the mountain (ziggurat) of Yahweh’s house (Temple)
Shall be established on the top of the mountains,
And shall be exalted above the hills;
And all nations shall flow to it.”
It is not difficult to see that Isaiah is talking to the age of the last generation, those of us alive today in the 21st century. What is going to happen in our day? Yahweh is going to invade Judah form Heaven by bringing His throne down to sit atop of the Temple Mount. Of course, He’s not just bringing down His Temple, He’s bringing down His whole ziggurat mountain that is about 1,379 miles square at its base, so the major part of the Middle East is going to be covered with the mountain of Yahweh! Revelation 3:7-12, “And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write, ‘These things says He who is holy, He who is true, “He who has the key of David, He who opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens”: 8“I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it; for you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name. 9Indeed I will make those of the synagogue of Satan, who say they are Jews and are not, but lie—indeed I will make them come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you. 10Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth. 11Behold, I am coming quickly! Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown. 12He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My Mighty One, and he shall go out no more. I will write on him the name of My Mighty One and the name of the city of My Mighty One, the New Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My Mighty One. And I will write on him My new name.” Revelation 21:1-4, “Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. 2Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from Yahweh, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of Yahweh is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. Yahweh Himself will be with them and be their Mighty One. 4And Yahweh will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”” Isaiah 65:17-19, “For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth; and the former shall not be remembered or come to mind. 18But be glad and rejoice forever in what I create; for behold, I create Jerusalem as a rejoicing, and her people a joy. 19I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in My people; the voice of weeping shall no longer be heard in her, nor the voice of crying.” Isaiah 66:18-23, “For I know their works and their thoughts. It shall be that I will gather all nations and tongues; and they shall come and see My glory. 19I will set a sign among them; and those among them who escape I will send to the nations: to Tarshish and Pul and Lud, who draw the bow, and Tubal and Javan, to the coastlands afar off who have not heard My fame nor seen My glory. And they shall declare My glory among the Gentiles. 20Then they shall bring all your brethren for an offering to Yahweh out of all nations, on horses and in chariots and in litters, on mules and on camels, to My holy mountain Jerusalem,” says Yahweh, “as the children of Israel bring an offering in a clean vessel into the house (Temple) of Yahweh. 21And I will also take some of them for priests and Levites,” says Yahweh. 22“For as the new heavens and the new earth which I will make shall remain before Me,” says Yahweh, “So shall your descendants and your name remain. 23And it shall come to pass that from one New Moon to another, and from one Sabbath to another, all flesh shall come to worship before Me,” says Yahweh.” 2 Peter 3:10-13, “But the (judgment) day of Yahweh will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up. 11Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, 12looking for and hastening the coming of the (judgment) day of Yahweh, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat? 13Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.”
Wow, Isaiah says that in the last days, Judah will be invaded from Heaven. John in Revelation makes it pretty clear that the New Jerusalem will come down AFTER the 1,000-year millennial reign of Yeshua on earth. What I believe these scriptures are showing us is that for us, once Yeshua shows up on earth, our time clock stops. To us, just like to Yahweh and Yeshua, the 1,000 years will pass like one day. One day Yeshua returns to earth, the next day Yahweh burns up the old heavens and earth and recreates a new heavens and earth and brings down the New Jerusalem from Heaven! In earth time, 1,000 years will pass between Yeshua’s return to earth and Yahweh’s invasion from Heaven, but in Kingdom time, there will only be one day between the two events! In other words, Yeshua’s Judgment Day happens around 6001 and Yahweh’s Great White Throne Judgment Day continues the next day around 7001. Judgment Day is just one event; on the first day of Judgment Day, Yeshua judges. On the second day of Judgment Day, Yahweh judges. With an earthbound mindset, these events seem to be two different Judgment Days separated by a long span of time, but with a Kingdom mindset, these are the same event, Judge Yeshua presides on the first day, Judge Yahweh presides on the second day.
“3 Many people shall come and say,
“Come, and let us go up to the mountain of Yahweh,
To the house (Temple) of the Mighty One of Jacob;
He will teach us His ways,
And we shall walk in His paths.”
For out of Zion shall go forth the Torah,
And the word of Yahweh from Jerusalem.
4 He shall judge (Judgment Day is almost here) between the nations,
And rebuke many people;
They shall beat their swords into plowshares,
And their spears into pruning hooks;
Nation shall not lift up sword against nation,
Neither shall they learn war anymore.”
This Judgment Day occurs upon Yeshua’s return to earth, when He crushes all nations, so as to establish His Kingdom on earth. There are demons, powers and principalities, over these nations, so this judgment describes Yeshua destroying His demonic enemies, the fallen angels. The Book of Revelation makes this pretty clear, and so does Daniel 2:34-35 & 44-45, “You watched while a stone was cut out without hands, which struck the image on its feet of iron and clay, and broke them in pieces. 35Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver, and the gold were crushed together, and became like chaff from the summer threshing floors; the wind carried them away so that no trace of them was found. And the stone that struck the image became a great mountain and filled the whole earth. . . 44And in the days of these kings the Mighty One of heaven will set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed; and the kingdom shall not be left to other people; it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever. 45Inasmuch as you saw that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it broke in pieces the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver, and the gold—the great Mighty One has made known to the king what will come to pass after this. The dream is certain, and its interpretation is sure.”
Daniel declares quite clearly that Yeshua’s kingdom destroys all the kingdoms of the earth and then lasts forever, on earth. Notice that Daniel states in verses 35 and 44 that all these kingdoms are alive and well at the same time when Yeshua crushes them, so much for the old theory of first the Babylonians, then the Persians, then the Greeks, and then the Romans. Daniel 2:28 made this explicitly clear, “But there is a Mighty One in heaven who reveals secrets, and He has made known to King Nebuchadnezzar what will be in the latter days.” Daniel 2 is a second coming chapter, period.
“5 O house of Jacob, come and let us walk
In the light of Yahweh.
6 For You have forsaken Your people, the house of Jacob,
Because they are filled with eastern ways;
They are soothsayers like the Philistines,
And they are pleased with the children of foreigners.
7 Their land is also full of silver and gold,
And there is no end to their treasures;
Their land is also full of horses,
And there is no end to their chariots.
8 Their land is also full of idols;
They worship the work of their own hands,
That which their own fingers have made.
9 People bow down,
And each man humbles himself;
Therefore do not forgive them.”
Look at Isaiah’s condemnation of Judah, Yahweh don’t forgive them because they’re idolaters! Ouch.
“10Enter into the rock, and hide in the dust,
From the terror of Yahweh
And the glory of His majesty.
11 The lofty looks of man shall be humbled,
The haughtiness of men shall be bowed down,
And Yahweh alone shall be exalted in that (judgment) day.
12 For the (judgment) day of Yahweh of hosts
Shall come upon everything proud and lofty,
Upon everything lifted up—
And it shall be brought low—
13 Upon all the cedars of Lebanon that are high and lifted up,
And upon all the oaks of Bashan;
14 Upon all the high mountains,
And upon all the hills that are lifted up;
15 Upon every high tower,
And upon every fortified wall;
16 Upon all the ships of Tarshish,
And upon all the beautiful sloops (pictures).
17 The loftiness of man shall be bowed down,
And the haughtiness of men shall be brought low;
Yahweh alone will be exalted in that (judgment) day,
18 But the idols He shall utterly abolish.
19 They 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.
20 In 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,
21 To 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.
22 Sever yourselves from such a man,
Whose breath is in his nostrils;
For of what account is he?”
Do these verses sound familiar? Of course, they are second coming, Judgment Day, scriptures. 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 (Israel is the fig tree of prophecy) 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 (judgment) day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?””
Judgment Day is coming. Yeshua is coming with the sword of His Word to instruct us in His ways. Yahweh is coming with His throne, which is a throne of judgment. When Yeshua Yahweh shows up, it’s Judgment Day. Isaiah saw the Judge about 2800 years ago, Daniel saw the Judge about 2600 years ago. We’re on the Court Docket to stand before the Judge NOW. It will not be a video conference court, it will be face to face. I pray we are all ready to meet the Judge of all the earth. Good luck on that standing thing. My knees are knocking just thinking about meeting Him face to face.
