The Destruction of Edom

“Like the Egyptian Tank Commanders who went before them, they will be totally and absolutely confused…”

Does anybody remember the Six Day War? If you are too young, you need to read up on it. That war was a miracle straight from God. The entire Arab World, Islam en masse,  lined up on Israel’s borders.

The night before the attack, the Egyptian Air Force threw an anticipatory victory party… While they were partying, Israel destroyed all their planes, as they sat unguarded on the tarmac…

Egypt’s tank commanders and a thousand tanks stood in the hills overlooking Israel. When the time to attack came, they stood still… they had lost radio contact with headquarters, and they had no idea what to do…

When it was over, Israel was twice the size it had been just a week before and soldiers stood and wept at the wailing wall in a united Jerusalem.

When you hear the media speak of “Israeli Occupied Territory,” understand that they are speaking of the land the Arabs lost in a war they started…

I want you to think about that because it is a foreshadow of things to come. This time, Russia and China and North Korea are lining up with the Arabs against Israel and America. This looks more serious than the Six Day War. This could be the end of Israel…

BUT GOD….

You will advance against My people Israel like a cloud covering the land. It will happen in the last days, Gog, that I will bring you against My land so that the nations may know Me, when I show Myself holy through you in their sight.


Ezekiel 38: 16 (HCSB)

This war will be like the Six Day War on Steroids…

God lists the Nations now aligned against Israel… Russia and Turkey and Syria and Iran. Scripture speaks of the war that is to come… When you finish reading Ezekiel 38, you can reach only one conclusion…

God says that He himself will destroy them in the mountains of Israel… He will bring an earthquake and a hailstorm… When the survivors stand up, like the Egyptian Tank Commanders who went before them, they will be totally and absolutely confused. In their confusion, they will take up battle, one against the other… There will be no one left… No one…

Obadiah tells us that Esau will have no (zero) descendants…

For the first time in History the Borders of Israel will match the description given by God… and the world will, for a moment, understand that it is the God of Israel who has done this thing…

The Antichrist will offer his treaty and the survivors of Edom will sign anything… absolutely anything…

Read the Scripture. Then, read the news. Then, read the Scripture again…

Think about it…

To Die For Jesus

Now, as under Caesar and the Popes, the Christian Church is fast becoming illegal and the persecution we have seen overseas now stands screaming and pounding at our own front door…

When the State stood against God, the early Church suffered and died rather than obey the unholy mandates of a Satanic State.

The Church of Rome, acting as a Satanic State, organized the Crusades and sent millions to kill and to die for the Church-State.

When the Church of Rome became the Satanic State, Bible believers suffered and died rather than obey the unholy mandates of a Satanic Church.

In the time of the Reformation, Bible believers suffered and died at the hands of the Church-State, but through their martyrdom, overcame. and gained the Freedom of Worship for Bible Believers throughout the Western World…

In the United States, the Church of Jesus Christ, through the Spirit of God, armed with the Word of God and militant in their righteousness and piety held an evil State at bay, controlled it, and minimized it for 200 years.

Then, the Church decided to join the world… The way for the church to grow, they said, was to become like the world and to make our churches sinner friendly…

Within fifty years we had lost, and the Government of Satan had become our God…

Now, as under Caesar and the Popes, the Christian Church is fast becoming illegal and the persecution we have seen overseas now stands screaming and pounding at our own front door…

NAR, Seven Mountains and the Dominionists stand ready to, in conjunction with and under the authority of Rome, become the evil and Satanic government. If they win, no less than the Church of Rome, this new, Satanic Church-State will persecute and kill Bible Believing Christians.

If I read my Bible right, they will win and they, under Lucifer and his AntiMessiah, will rule the world. It is that time… Israel has completed seventy years and Jerusalem has passed fifty… It is time.

The answer is neither to obey the Satanic State nor to take up arms against it…

The Answer, as in days gone by, is civil disobedience and a relationship with Jesus Christ that is strong enough to see you through Martyrdom… the ability to stand strong and faithful through a painful death, all the way to the Throne of God…

Think about it…

Facebook Down

Social Media is dead this morning. Is this a drill, or is this the real thing?

We have always known that this is the way it would go down… Friday evening, everything would be fine but by Monday, all social-media would be dead, ATMs would not work, and banks would be closed… Stores would not open because their cash registers would not connect to the banks or the corporate office…

So is this real, or is it a drill? Will we wake up to a new One World Reality tomorrow or will there just be fake reasons and sorry excuses?

Facebook, Messenger, What’s App and Instagram all went out like somene hit a switch at 6:30 AM this morning… That was not an accident nor were they taken down by an outside agency… That is impossible! This was internal, they simply turned it off…

Think about it!

THE ANTIMESSIAH, THE JESUITS AND A JESUIT POPE…

1. NAR and Dominionism are Jesuit/Masonic run institutions.
2. Trump is a tool of the Jesuits/Masons in their bid to rule the world.
3. Pope Francis is running the whole show.

John 5:43 “I have come in My Father’s name, and you do not receive Me; if another comes in his own name, you will receive him.

I just watched a video that is informing my view of the AntiMessiah and his kingdom. It is long, but you might want to watch it before you read the rest of this Post:

I have stated many times my belief that the Dominionists are forming the Antichrist Religion; this video proves me right. I have written of Pope Francis, sometimes as the False Prophet, other times as the Antichrist. This is becoming clearer… much clearer. I have written of Trump as one who prepares the way for the AntiMessiah. I believe this more than ever before. I have written of the Jesuits, the Masons and the Founding Fathers of the United States. My understanding of their role in the Kingdom of the AntiMessiah is becoming firmer and more solid… Let me share with you what I now understand.

Here are some things to look at:

  1. Pope Francis is the first Jesuit Pope.
  2. NAR, the Dominionists and the Pope.
  3. Rick Warren and the Pope.
  4. Kenneth Copeland, Jesuits and the Pope.
  5. Donald Trump, Jesuits and the Pope.
  6. The Masons, the Jesuits and the Pope.
  7. The Muslims and the Pope.

POPE FRANCIS AS THE KEY TO THE AGE:

In 2014, Kenneth Copeland held a meeting with his leadership. Pope Francis, spoke to the group and Copeland and his leadership, prayed for the Pope. Mr. Copeland, who was raised Catholic and educated in Jesuit Schools has returned to his roots. He and his entire organization have sworn loyalty to the Pope.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uA4EPOfic5A&feature=youtu.be

Rick Warren refers to Pope Francis as “Our Pope” and told his congregation that “Pope Francis is the Pope of all Christians, everywhere.” http://www.nowtheendbegins.com/rick-warren-says-pope-francis-pope-christians-worldwide-videos/)

Somehow, Pope Francis and the Vatican are at the center of all this. I know what has been said about an Islamic Antichrist, but Rome is the oldest and best-established Antichrist system in the world and Islam is the bastard child of Rome.

Two time periods have been of great interest to the whole world of late, December of 2012 and September of 2015. Everyone had a theory of what would happen during those two time periods. Almost none of those visions came true at the appointed times. Two events that snuck under the radar, for the most part, really happened and they are tied together with an unbreakable bond. These actual events, one tied to December 2012 and the other to September of 2015, should really grab your attention.

First, let us review why the whole world was looking at these dates.

DECEMBER 2012:

  • God works on a different calendar. December 21st, 2012 fell on 8 Tevet 5773. The year 5773 started on 1 Tishri or September 17, 2012 and ended on 29 Elul or September 4 2013. Let us use that Jewish year for the purposes of our discussion.
  • The Zohar, written by Jews 700 years ago, claimed that in the Jewish year 5773, the Antichrist would be revealed.
  • The Mayan Calendar ended in the Year 5773 with the return of their “Flying Dragon” god, Kulkulkan.
  • The Aztec Calendar ended in the year 5773 with the return of their “Flying Dragon” god, Quetzalcoatl.
  • The Cherokee Indian Calendar ended in 5773 with the return of their “Flying Rattlesnake” god.
  • The Hindu Kali Yuga Calendar ended in 5773 at the end of the age of the “Male Demon”.
  • Using math and Astronomy far above my head David Flynn, in his scholarly work CYDONIA, claimed that the Platonic year changed on 8 Tevet 5773 and we, measured by astronomy and not astrology, entered the Age of Aquarius on that day.
  • Jonathan Edwards tied, the arrival of the Antichrist and the Great Tribulation to 2012 (or 5773) (https://biblicalstudies.org.uk/pdf/ref-rev/05-3/5-3_holdsworth.pdf)
  • In 1878, Dr. William J. Reid, a highly acclaimed Minister in the Presbyterian Church, wrote, “…we are prepared to answer the question, ‘When will the Papal system come to an end?’ …in the year 2012.” (Lectures on the revelation. Author: Reid, William J. page 306)
  • The thousand-year-old Prophecy of St. Malachy predicted that Pope Francis would be the “Last Pope” a man who will usher in the Tribulation and whose reign will end with the coming of the “Terrible Judge”.

So, what happened at that time?

We know that right before Christmas, in the same time frame as the December 21st, 2012 end of the Mayan Calendar; there was a terrible Coup in the Vatican that forced the resignation of Benedict XVI. While the resignation was not announced until February of 2013 and did not take effect until the end of that month, the deed was done in the year 5773.

The “Last Pope” was installed on Tuesday, March 26, 2013, In the Jewish Year, 5773.

SEPTEMBER 2015

All eyes were on September of 2015 because of the end of the Shemitah and the four Blood Moons. I am sure that you remember all the hype. Nothing earth shattering happened on that particular day however, as many had expected. The night of the last Blood Moon, many were expecting something to happen that would shake the world. When nothing of that magnitude happened, many were disappointed.

So, did nothing happen at that time? No, something very prophetic happened. It was quiet. Many Christians picked up on it at the instant it happened but most never saw it at all.

Jesus, in John 5:43, said, “I have come in My Father’s name, yet you don’t accept Me. If someone else comes IN HIS OWN NAME, you will accept him.”

“IN HIS OWN NAME”

On September 25th, 2015, the largest group of Heads of State, ever assembled together in one place, in the history of the world, was at the United Nations in New York.

Pope Francis stood before that group and the world. In his opening remarks, the Pontiff said, “Thank you for your kind words. Once again, following a tradition by which I feel honored, the Secretary General of the United Nations has invited the Pope to address this distinguished assembly of nations. IN MY OWN NAME…”

“IN MY OWN NAME…”

Who is it who has rejected the Christian façade of Catholicism and returned to its pagan roots?

Who is it that seeks to cause all religions to reject the doctrines that divide them?

Who is it who seeks to unite the whole world under the pagan religion of Sumer, Babylon, Egypt and Rome?

POPE FRANCIS!

2 Thessalonians 2
The Man of Lawlessness
1 Now concerning the
COMING OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST and OUR BEING GATHERED TO HIM:
We ask you, brothers, 2 not to be easily upset in mind or troubled, either by a spirit or by a message or by a letter as if from us, alleging that the Day of the Lord has come.
3 DON’T LET ANYONE DECEIVE YOU in any way.
For THAT DAY WILL NOT COME UNLESS
THE APOSTASY COMES FIRST and
THE MAN OF LAWLESSNESS IS REVEALED,
the son of destruction. 4 He opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he sits in God’s sanctuary, publicizing that he himself is God.
 
CONCERNING:
THE COMING OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST
OUR BEING GATHERED TO HIM
 
DON’T LET ANYONE DECEIVE YOU
THAT DAY WILL NOT COME
UNLESS
THE APOSTASY COMES FIRST
THE MAN OF LAWLESSNESS IS REVEALED

THE JESUIT, MASONIC CONNECTION

Free Masonry, as I discus in depth in my book, Lucifer’s Quest, Undoing Babel, was founded by Jesuits as a means by which to conquer and rule the very Protestant population in America for a very Catholic Pope.

America, populated for the most part by a Christian people, was given an evil government, for an evil purpose. These evil men with an evil purpose were among the brightest of their day. More than that, there is considerable evidence that they had supernatural help from evil beings. Because they were smart and because the very pillars of Masonry were formed by Jesuits, these men, unsaved and ungodly as they may have been, knew the Gospel. They also knew human nature. They were students of the first order. The one thing they knew was that, if their perverted doctrine was to take hold in America, it had to sound Christian and it had to sound Protestant.

I must remind you here that it is the Devil who offered Jesus wealth and power if he would worship him. The Devil’s side is always going to be better funded than the church. The Masons were wealthy businessmen. They brought wealth, status, power and education with them from England. The “simple” Christians in the Colonies were no match for these men. These men paid for our church buildings and served as our Elders and Deacons. Often, they supported the whole local church. Any independent, God fearing rebels were quickly silenced. These men started schools of higher learning. They started, funded, and taught in the nation’s seminaries, be they Baptist, Anglican, Methodist or Presbyterian. America’s pastors learned their doctrine from these men, and that doctrine was twisted.

It was Dominionist theology that gave the CHRISTIANS the moral prerogative to slaughter the Indians and steal their land. Dominionism is a chief doctrine in the Roman church. The Jesuits taught it to the Masons. The Masons built, supported and taught in every Protestant Seminary and college in America. They taught the Roman doctrine of Dominionism to the Protestants. It was this belief that you establish the Kingdom by killing unbelievers and pagans that gave American believers the moral ground by which they could justify the wholesale slaughter of a people in the Name of God…

It is the Masons and the Jesuits who have now revived Dominionist theology in the American Church. It is Dominionism that will provide the basis for the Theocracy that is about to take over America and which will serve as the religious base for the Kingdom of the Beast… And they will slaughter all those who will not join them. They will slaughter their enemies in the Name of Israel’s God…

For the first time in history, we have a Jesuit Pope and we have Jesuit educated Americans, placing their NAR and Dominionist churches under the authority of that Jesuit Pope.

This leads me to some inevitable conclusions:

  1. NAR and Dominionism are Jesuit/Masonic run institutions.
  2. Trump is a tool of the Jesuits/Masons in their bid to rule the world.
  3. Pope Francis is running the whole show.

I have seen the AntiMessiah as a governmental/Military leader and the False Prophet as the religious leader. I could be wrong. As a Jesuit, Pope Francis is not only religious, he is head of the largest government in the world and a trained military commander. Francis may be absolutely in charge and simply using Donald and the power of the United States to accomplish his will.

The Jews see Donald Trump as Mashiach Ben Yosef, the military leader who will prepare the way for the AntiMessiah. I have been looking for a Jewish AntiMessiah, and he may be… Pope Francis, as the False Prophet would be the miracle worker and the power behind the throne… Jesuits have never wanted to be kings. Jesuits much prefer to control and direct kings from the shadows…

So, we have an Unholy Trinity:

  • Lucifer as God
  • Kushner as AntiMessiah
  • Pope Francis as the False Prophet
  • And we have Trump as “John the Antibaptist”, the Servant of Pope Francis, the Jesuits, the Masons and the Dominionists…

What we are about to see in the United States first, and then covering the world, is a theocracy… This theocracy will consider anyone who disagrees with them to be a heretic, worthy of death… Especially Bible Believing Christians…

They will first court the Jews and then betray them… Kushner may be Jewish by blood but he is first of all a servant of Lucifer and a Dominionist… He will have no qualms at killing the Jews who will not bow to him nor join his Theocracy… The Muslims are going to first be mostly destroyed and then absorbed into the Theocracy.

I may be wrong, but I am betting that the Vatican gets sovereignty over at least the Holy Sites, including the Temple Mount, if not the entire city of Jerusalem… From the first day, the Roman Church has lusted for sovereignty over Israel. It is looking like the Jesuits are going to win it for them…

The Kingdom of the AntiMessiah is going to be a Dominionist Theocracy!

Think about it…

Lucifer’s Quest

Undoing Babel

Could it be that first in the foundation of the United States, and now the New World Order, Satan has been working to undo that which God accomplished at the Tower of Babel?

In this book, David Rice presents the thesis that other than the cross of Christ, the separation of mankind into tribes and tongues and nations was the most devastating blow ever dealt to the enemy of our souls.

Genesis 11:6 reads, “The Lord said, “If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them.”

David maintains that Satan has never forgotten that statement and that he has worked tirelessly to undo that separation and reunite mankind. If he succeeds, and Scripture tells us that he will, the Devil believes or pretends to believe that he, his angels and a united people can defeat Jehovah God.

How has this played out in history and how is it being worked out today? Can we see, in today’s push for global governance, the continued efforts of Satan to undo Babel? David writes,

“That which God has cast asunder, let no man reassemble!”

This is an exciting book that may lead you to think in ways you have never thought before and to understand that which has been hidden from you…

Join in as we travel from Babel to Egypt, to Greece through Rome, England, the United States, and the coming New World Order. We will follow the works of the enemy as he seeks to undo that which God has done at Babel, reunite mankind and defeat Jehovah at Armageddon.

The Most Wonderful Lie

No Messiah could come, no hero could arise unless there was an evil and unbeatable foe who threatened the very life of the common man.

Every up and coming Dictator has used the Liberal Left to destroy the nation he desired to control and then destroyed the liberals when he came into power. Mao, Lenin, and Hitler all encouraged Homosexuals and homosexual behavior while they were fighting for power… When they gained absolute control, they lined up all the Gays, who had so recently come out of the closet, and shot them…

So shall it be at the coming of the AntiMessiah…

The Elite have been encouraging, enabling and financing the godless Left. They have raised them to a position of incredible power, authority and glory… Amazing, considering how few Americans actually think that way…

Millions who now find it convenient and to their advantage to support the Left, are violating their own conscience to do so… When the world and the Nation swing to the Right, these people will let out a collective sigh of relief and jump on the Conservative Bandwagon…

Tens of millions of younger people are without direction or guidance… they have no idea who they are, why they are here, what they are doing or where they are going. This is a miserable state of existence… If someone comes along and offers them direction and a reason to be… they will bow down and follow him.

The AntiMessiah is going to rescue us from the godless Left. He is going to give the younger people a reason to live and a cause worth dying for…

I see the AntiMessiah as a Christ, a Messiah, a Savior… He will be exactly what the Jews were looking for in a Messiah when Jesus came. They rejected Jesus because He did not fit their picture of who and what a Messiah should be… Their Messiah was going to ride into town, gather an Army and destroy their enemies…

That, is exactly what the AntiMessiah will do, which is why the Jews who rejected Jesus Christ will embrace this new Messiah with open arms… He will be the sum of their hopes and dreams…

What you see today is the Hegelian Dialectic taken to its occultic peak… Hegel on Steroids if you would… No Messiah could come, no hero could arise unless there was an evil and unbeatable foe who threatened the very life of the common man. The Left is nothing more than an inflated target, waiting to be shot down.

I am convinced that the Man of Sin will come to save us from the Left, and evil everywhere. He will really be seen as a Savior, a Christ and a Messiah. He will be preceded by the Suffering Servant who will defeat the Enemies of Israel and prepare the way. He will rise to the Throne of Israel and it is from Jerusalem that he will rule the world.

It might not go down this way and it might not involve these people. I could be wrong… but you need to think of how it is that the deception will appeal strongly to the Church and those who identify as Christians…

I think that it will go down something like this…

There will be some kind of False Flag… more tragic than any seen before. Out of the tragedy, Trump will declare Martial Law and become absolute ruler of the United States… a man without a Constitution, promising, always, to restore Democracy when the crisis is past… Problem being, the crisis will never pass. Somewhere along the line, Trump will be assassinated, and lying in State, under the Apotheosis of Washington and the Idol to Columbia, while the Masons hold their Rising of Osiris Occult Working down the street, Osiris will be incarnated in that dead body, animate it and fake a resurrection.

Trump will be there when Russia, Turkey, Iran and the rest, invade Israel from the north. God will destroy those nations in the Mountains of Israel, and Trump will be there to take credit and force the remnant of Edom to sign a treaty that is much to their disadvantage…

Trump will encourage his Son-in-Law Jared Kushner, and Kushner, as a Son of David, will ascend to the Throne of David and then the throne of the World… Of course, the Pope is right in there, and no Treaty can be made without the approval and participation of the Vatican. They will all work together…

The chances that it will go down exactly like that, are about a hundred to none against it… It won’t happen exactly like that, but you need to jump out of your little box and start thinking, praying and watching…

It is not going to go down like it happened in the Left Behind Series, and it will not even resemble what the Prophecy teachers were saying back in the Seventies… If your eyes are open, your Lamp full of Oil, and you are watching… you will see and not be fooled. Otherwise, you will be made a fool…

Please Pray, watch and think… You do not want to believe the lie…

GOD IS GOING TO KILL US:

Yes, God is in Control and He will fulfill his Word. He will send “Those destined for death, to death; And those destined for the sword, to the sword; And those destined for famine, to famine; And those destined for captivity, to captivity.”’

PROPHECY IN CONTEXT

Dr. David A. Rice

2 Chronicles 7:14 If My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

What American Christian has not heard that verse ad nauseum?

Let us here do what almost no one ever does… Let us look at that verse in context.

This is at the dedication of Solomon’s Temple and God says that He has heard their prayer and that He has accepted that place as a place of sacrifice.

 12 Then the Lord appeared to Solomon at night and said to him, “I have heard your prayer and have chosen this place for Myself as a house of sacrifice.

Secondly, God makes a statement that would shock and sicken many American Christians and pastors, should they ever read it… In a religious environment where all good things are credited to God (even if the “good thing” is unscriptural) and everything bad attributed to the Devil, this verse would leave many Christians with their heads under their pillow, trembling…

 13 If I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among My people,

Then comes the verse American Christians have claimed as their own…

14 and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

May I note that, with few exceptions, even Christians in America who love to quote this verse have never humbled themselves, or sought Gods Face, or turned from their wicked ways…

Just an observation…

This is followed by a passage in which God makes an acceptance speech…

15 Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to the prayer offered in this place. 16 For now I have chosen and consecrated this house that My name may be there forever, and My eyes and My heart will be there perpetually. 17 As for you, if you walk before Me as your father David walked, even to do according to all that I have commanded you, and will keep My statutes and My ordinances, 18 then I will establish your royal throne as I covenanted with your father David, saying, ‘You shall not lack a man to be ruler in Israel.’

The American Christian loves this kind of passage… They underline all the “Forevers” and the “Nevers” and never even see the “If” clauses…

How many times have I been emphatically reminded that “God said ‘FOREVER’”, when the very next verse starts with the awesome little word “IF”? Go back in this short passage and note first, the words like “forever” and “perpetually” and then go back and carefully read the “IF” clauses…

Next comes the part that no modern preacher in his right mind would ever read from the pulpit, let alone preach on…

19 “But if you turn away and forsake My statutes and My commandments which I have set before you, and go and serve other gods and worship them, 20 then I will uproot you from My land which I have given you, and this house which I have consecrated for My name I will cast out of My sight and I will make it a proverb and a byword among all peoples. 21 As for this house, which was exalted, everyone who passes by it will be astonished and say, ‘Why has the Lord done thus to this land and to this house?’ 22 And they will say, ‘Because they forsook the Lord, the God of their fathers who brought them from the land of Egypt, and they adopted other gods and worshiped them and served them; therefore He has brought all this adversity on them.’”

Unfortunately, Israel choose the second option and received the curse and not the blessing…

On the 9th of Av in 587 BC, Nebuchadnezzar, whom God referred to as “My servant” destroyed that Temple, killed the priests and flattened Jerusalem.

God told Jeremiah that He was going to destroy Israel. The prophet argued with him saying:

13 But, “Ah, Lord God!” I said, “Look, the prophets are telling them, ‘You will not see the sword nor will you have famine, but I will give you lasting peace in this place.’”

God answered:

14 Then the Lord said to me, “The prophets are prophesying falsehood in My name. I have neither sent them nor commanded them nor spoken to them; they are prophesying to you a false vision, divination, futility and the deception of their own minds.

They had become so evil that when Jeremiah tried to pray for them, God said:

Jeremiah 15:1 Then the Lord said to me, “Even though Moses and Samuel were to stand before Me, My heart would not be with this people; send them away from My presence and let them go! 2 And it shall be that when they say to you, ‘Where should we go?’ then you are to tell them, ‘Thus says the Lord:

“Those destined for death, to death;
And those destined for the sword, to the sword;
And those destined for famine, to famine;
And those destined for captivity, to captivity.”’

Then, on or about the 10th of Av, 587 BC, Jeremiah walked the Streets of Jerusalem. In Lamentations chapter 2, we read his commentary:

20 See, O Lord, and look!
With whom have You dealt thus?
Should women eat their offspring,
The little ones who were born healthy?
Should priest and prophet be slain
In the sanctuary of the Lord?
21 On the ground in the streets
Lie young and old;
My virgins and my young men
Have fallen by the sword.
You have slain them in the day of Your anger,
You have slaughtered, not sparing.
22 You called as in the day of an appointed feast
My terrors on every side;
And there was no one who escaped or survived
In the day of the Lord’s anger.
Those whom I bore and reared,
My enemy annihilated them.

Then the Prophet looks at the survivors and cries:

13 How shall I admonish you?
To what shall I compare you,
O daughter of Jerusalem?
To what shall I liken you as I comfort you,
O virgin daughter of Zion?
For your ruin is as vast as the sea;
Who can heal you?
14 Your prophets have seen for you
False and foolish visions;
And they have not exposed your iniquity
So as to restore you from captivity,
But they have seen for you false and misleading oracles.
15 All who pass along the way
Clap their hands in derision at you;
They hiss and shake their heads
At the daughter of Jerusalem,
“Is this the city of which they said,
‘The perfection of beauty,
A joy to all the earth’?”

Did you get that?

14 Your prophets have seen for you
False and foolish visions;
And they have not exposed your iniquity
So as to restore you from captivity,
But they have seen for you false and misleading oracles.

 This is America today. As I write this, it is Saturday. Tomorrow morning, all across America, Pastors will look out across their congregations and assure their flock that God is in control and everything is going to work out well…

“GOD IS IN CONTROL”

Yes, God is in Control and He will fulfill his Word. He will send “Those destined for death, to death; And those destined for the sword, to the sword; And those destined for famine, to famine; And those destined for captivity, to captivity.”’
