Terrorism is the beginning of sorrows for English speaking people, and ultimately the whole world. The true story of terror begins at the time of Adam and Eve. The disobedience of Adam and Eve has brought on a terrible curse for mankind.
Gen 3:15 And I will put enmity Between you and the woman, And between your seed and her Seed; He shall bruise your head, And you shall bruise His heel."
The children of the devil hate the children of Adam and Eve, and are always present when righteousness appears. [I must point out that God does not stop evil, He has made mankind, and spirit beings, to make their own choice about how to live. God does not stop righteous people from getting into trouble; He delivers them out of trouble.]
Psa 34:19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous, But the LORD delivers him out of them all.
The enmity between the good seed of Adam and Eve, and the evil seed of the devil, began immediately with Cain murdering Abel. Cain was a child of the devil.
Gen 4:1 Now Adam knew Eve his wife, and she conceived and bore Cain, and said, "I have acquired a man from the LORD."
1Jn 3:12 not as Cain who was of the wicked one and murdered his brother. And why did he murder him? Because his works were evil and his brother's righteous.
At the time of Seth and Enosh: men began to call on the name of the Lord.
Gen 4:26 And as for Seth, to him also a son was born; and he named him Enosh. Then men began to call on the name of the LORD.
Look what happened at that time. [Gen. 5 is genealogy.] Just when mankind started living righteously: along came the evil sons of God, and fill the world with evil. God destroyed this evil generation in Noahís flood.
Gen 6:2 that the sons of God saw the daughters of men, that they were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves of all whom they chose.
Gen 6:3 And the LORD said, "My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, for he is indeed flesh; yet his days shall be one hundred and twenty years."
Gen 6:4 There were giants on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown.
Gen 6:5 Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
Noah was righteous, and free of the devil seed, and God made a plan to carry only the good seed the other side of the flood. [Noahís wife and family were obviously free of the evil seed also.]
Gen 6:9 This is the genealogy of Noah. Noah was a just man, perfect in his generations. Noah walked with God.
Look what happened. Once again, the evil spirits ruined Godís plan. This is proved by the fact that Canaan sodomised Noah. Once again, evil is in the world.
1Pe 3:19 by whom also He went and preached to the spirits in prison,
1Pe 3:20 who formerly were disobedient, when once the Divine longsuffering waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was being prepared, in which a few, that is, eight souls, were saved through water.
The whole world was again full of evil when God called Abraham and made a covenant. Abraham believed, and obeyed God. This is a very rare trait.
Jas 2:23 And the Scripture was fulfilled which says, "ABRAHAM BELIEVED GOD, AND IT WAS ACCOUNTED TO HIM FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS." And he was called the friend of God.
Heb 11:8 By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to the place which he would receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going.
Godís covenant with Abraham was a promise of physical riches. This covenant is mentioned many times in the bible, and promises great physical riches for Abrahamís descendants.
Gen 17:1 When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the LORD appeared to Abram and said to him, "I am Almighty God; walk before Me and be blameless.
Gen 17:2 And I will make My covenant between Me and you, and will multiply you exceedingly."
Gen 17:3 Then Abram fell on his face, and God talked with him, saying:
Gen 17:4 "As for Me, behold, My covenant is with you, and you shall be a father of many nations.
Gen 17:5 No longer shall your name be called Abram, but your name shall be Abraham; for I have made you a father of many nations.
Gen 17:6 I will make you exceedingly fruitful; and I will make nations of you, and kings shall come from you.
Gen 17:7 And I will establish My covenant between Me and you and your descendants after you in their generations, for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and your descendants after you.
Once again, the devil comes into the scene with a diabolical plan. The promise to Abraham would normally carry on to the firstborn. Along comes the old serpent and arranges for one of his progeny to be born first. If the devil succeeded with this plan, his progeny would have gained the promises. Ishmael was Abrahamís firstborn.
1Ch 1:28 The sons of Abraham were Isaac and Ishmael.
God did not acknowledge Ishmael.
Gen 22:2 Then He said, "Take now your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I shall tell you."
Gen 22:12 And He said, "Do not lay your hand on the lad, or do anything to him; for now I know that you fear God, since you have not withheld your son, your only son, from Me."
Gen 17:18 And Abraham said to God, "Oh, that Ishmael might live before You!"
Ishmael was given a good promise, but it was not a touch on the promise made to Isaac.
Gen 17:20 And as for Ishmael, I have heard you. Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly. He shall beget twelve princes, and I will make him a great nation.
Gen 17:21 But My covenant I will establish with Isaac, whom Sarah shall bear to you at this set time next year."
Ishmael was a child of the devil, and was Abrahamís firstborn, but was not given the promises. The following scripture has massive repercussions for this very time we live in. The children of the promise are the descendants of Abraham who have received the promise. Ishmaelites believe that they are hard done by and should have the promises made to Abraham. Ishmaelites persecuted Israelites at the time Galations was written; that persecution is increasing as the time of the end draws near.
Gal 4:28 Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are children of promise.
Gal 4:29 But, as he who was born according to the flesh then persecuted him who was born according to the Spirit, even so it is now.
Isaacís firstborn was Esau, he was also rejected by God, as he put no value on his birthright, and sold it for a plate of beans. Esau may not be a child of the devil, as God did not disown him. Esau despised his birthright.
Gen 25:34 And Jacob gave Esau bread and stew of lentils; then he ate and drank, arose, and went his way. Thus Esau despised his birthright.
God hated Esau.
Rom 9:13 As it is written, "JACOB I HAVE LOVED, BUT ESAU I HAVE HATED."
Jacob conspired to steal the blessing off Esau. [Jacob paid for this deception later on, as Laban deceived him and gave him the plain Leah to marriage instead of the beautiful, shapely Rachel.] Jacob also had to wrestle all night with a spirit being [possibly Christ.]
Gen 29:17 Leah's eyes were delicate, but Rachel was beautiful of form and appearance.
Esau hated Jacob, but that hatred was forgotten when Esau prospered. That hatred returns as Jacobís descendants grow in wealth, and Esauís descendants embrace poverty.
Gen 27:41 So Esau hated Jacob because of the blessing with which his father blessed him, and Esau said in his heart, "The days of mourning for my father are at hand; then I will kill my brother Jacob."
At the time of Jacob: there were two firstborn of the line of Abraham, who had been disqualified from receiving the promises. Esau may not have been a child of the devil, as God did not disown him, but he despised his birthright. Both Ishmael and Esau have become nations, which hate modern day Israel.
Jacob had twelve sons who were given the promises between them. Only Joseph was righteous, and he was cast out by his brothers, and ended up in an Egyptian jail for his trouble. Joseph had two sons who were adopted by Jacob, and were given the greatest blessings. The promise of great riches was given to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob [Israel], and then to Josephís two sons Ephraim and Manasseh. The blessings for all the tribes vary, and are given in Gen. 49.
Gen 48:22 Moreover I have given to you one portion above your brothers, which I took from the hand of the Amorite with my sword and my bow."
The sons of Israel eventually went into slavery in Egypt and forgot about God and the promises. God eventually led them out of slavery by Moses. Moses was a friend of God, and God the word [Jesus Christ] was with the Israelites in the wilderness. God the Father was not in their midst, but He was never far away. Moses still had to put up with rebellion, and idol worship by the complaining Israelites. What happened next was to change the course of history.
God gave the terms of the old covenant to Israel, and they agreed to keep those terms. The old covenant was given on Mount Horeb, or Sinai. This was the Ten Commandments.
Exo 34:28 So he was there with the LORD forty days and forty nights; he neither ate bread nor drank water. And He wrote on the tablets the words of the covenant, the Ten Commandments.
The Israelites agreed to the terms of the covenant.
Exo 19:7 So Moses came and called for the elders of the people, and laid before them all these words which the LORD commanded him.
Exo 19:8 Then all the people answered together and said, "All that the LORD has spoken we will do." So Moses brought back the words of the people to the LORD.
The pieces of the puzzle start to come together. The old covenant promised physical riches for obedience to God. The reward for obedience was fantastic, but the punishment for disobedience was catastrophic.
Abrahamís descendants, the twelve tribes of Israel, were promised riches unconditionally, because of Abrahamís obedience. The descendants of Ishmael, and Esau believe they are entitled to the blessings. The greatest blessing was to go to Ephraim and Manasseh. The twelve tribes were offered the great blessings, but were unable to keep the terms of the covenant. Even though Ephraim and Manasseh were unable to keep the covenant; they must still inherit the birthright promises made to Abraham.
Before going any further, I will mention Godís people from exodus to now. Godís people were always persecuted, and quite often put to death.
Heb 11:37 They were stoned, they were sawn in two, were tempted, were slain with the sword. They wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins, being destitute, afflicted, tormented
John the Baptist was beheaded.
Mar 6:25 Immediately she came in with haste to the king and asked, saying, "I want you to give me at once the head of John the Baptist on a platter."
Mar 6:26 And the king was exceedingly sorry; yet, because of the oaths and because of those who sat with him, he did not want to refuse her.
Mar 6:27 Immediately the king sent an executioner and commanded his head to be brought. And he went and beheaded him in prison,
Christ was surrounded by children of the devil, and crucified.
Joh 8:44 You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.
The Apostles were not persecuted until they received the Holy Spirit of life, they were then all put to death except John.
Mr. Armstrong, the human head of the Philadelphian era was surrounded by disloyalty, and he was derided by Tíkach, who took over, and brought the church to nothing.
Back to the covenant. Israel could not keep the covenant, and will have to pay the penalty.
Eze 16:59 For thus says the Lord GOD: "I will deal with you as you have done, who despised the oath by breaking the covenant.
Heb 8:9 NOT ACCORDING TO THE COVENANT THAT I MADE WITH THEIR FATHERS IN THE DAY WHEN I TOOK THEM BY THE HAND TO LEAD THEM OUT OF THE LAND OF EGYPT; BECAUSE THEY DID NOT CONTINUE IN MY COVENANT, AND I DISREGARDED THEM, SAYS THE LORD.
Jer 11:8 Yet they did not obey or incline their ear, but everyone followed the dictates of his evil heart; therefore I will bring upon them all the words of this covenant, which I commanded them to do, but which they have not done.' "
Great Britain and America are latter day Ephraim and Manasseh. These two countries have inherited the promise of greatness, which was made to Abraham all those years ago. The English speaking people have never obeyed God as per the words of the covenant, but have received tremendous riches, as per the blessing given to Joseph.
Gen 49:22 "Joseph is a fruitful bough, A fruitful bough by a well; His branches run over the wall.
Gen 49:23 The archers have bitterly grieved him, Shot at him and hated him.
Gen 49:24 But his bow remained in strength, And the arms of his hands were made strong By the hands of the Mighty God of Jacob (From there is the Shepherd, the Stone of Israel),
Gen 49:25 By the God of your father who will help you, And by the Almighty who will bless you With blessings of heaven above, Blessings of the deep that lies beneath, Blessings of the breasts and of the womb.
Gen 49:26 The blessings of your father Have excelled the blessings of my ancestors, Up to the utmost bound of the everlasting hills. They shall be on the head of Joseph, And on the crown of the head of him who was separate from his brothers.
Deu 33:13 And of Joseph he said: "Blessed of the LORD is his land, With the precious things of heaven, with the dew, And the deep lying beneath,
Deu 33:14 With the precious fruits of the sun, With the precious produce of the months,
Deu 33:15 With the best things of the ancient mountains, With the precious things of the everlasting hills,
Deu 33:16 With the precious things of the earth and its fullness, And the favor of Him who dwelt in the bush. Let the blessing come 'on the head of Joseph, And on the crown of the head of him who was separate from his brothers.'
Deu 33:17 His glory is like a firstborn bull, And his horns like the horns of the wild ox; Together with them He shall push the peoples To the ends of the earth; They are the ten thousands of Ephraim, And they are the thousands of Manasseh."
Leviticus chapter 26 gives the blessings for obedience to the covenant: it also gives the punishment for disobedience. It should not be hard to guess who God uses to punish Israel. There are ten nations, which all appear to be Arabs. Ishmael and Esau [Edom] are the first two mentioned.
Psa 83:2 For behold, Your enemies make a tumult; And those who hate You have lifted up their head.
Psa 83:3 They have taken crafty counsel against Your people, And consulted together against Your sheltered ones.
Psa 83:4 They have said, "Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, That the name of Israel may be remembered no more."
Psa 83:5 For they have consulted together with one consent; They form a confederacy against You:
Psa 83:6 The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites; Moab and the Hagrites;
Psa 83:7 Gebal, Ammon, and Amalek; Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre;
Psa 83:8 Assyria also has joined with them; They have helped the children of Lot. Selah
ĎSyriansí may be the ĎHagarenesí.
Isa 9:12 The Syrians before and the Philistines behind; And they shall devour Israel with an open mouth. For all this His anger is not turned away, But His hand is stretched out still.
There are five stages, which destroy us and leave only 10% of one third alive in captivity.
The Assyrians are involved initially, they then come in and Israel is decimated by Babylon.
Jer 50:17 "Israel is like scattered sheep; The lions have driven him away. First the king of Assyria devoured him; Now at last this Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon has broken his bones."
Look at the first barrage ďterrorĒ God appoints terror.
Lev 26:15 and if you despise My statutes, or if your soul abhors My judgments, so that you do not perform all My commandments, but break My covenant,
Lev 26:16 I also will do this to you: I will even appoint terror over you, wasting disease and fever which shall consume the eyes and cause sorrow of heart. And you shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it.
Terror has already started in English speaking countries, and will get much worse. Leviticus 26 needs to be read and believed. God uses friends and enemies, and the nations, which have an old hatred, to punish us.
Eze 25:15 'Thus says the Lord GOD: "Because the Philistines dealt vengefully and took vengeance with a spiteful heart, to destroy because of the old hatred,"
The English speaking peoples have broken every word of the covenant. Our country is now well entrenched with sodomites. Pagan temples are abundant. Pagan gods are respected, while the Great God and Jesus Christ are blasphemed continuously.
God is about to get angry with Israel.
Jer 23:20 The anger of the LORD will not turn back Until He has executed and performed the thoughts of His heart. In the latter days you will understand it perfectly.
Jer 30:24 The fierce anger of the LORD will not return until He has done it, And until He has performed the intents of His heart. In the latter days you will consider it.
God will use the watchman of Ezekiel to warn latter day Ephraim and Manasseh before trouble starts in earnest. All of Israel will hear the warning.
The message goes to English speaking countries, and all Israelites hear it.
Hos 5:9 Ephraim shall be desolate in the day of rebuke; Among the tribes of Israel I make known what is sure.
Isa 9:8 The Lord sent a word against Jacob, And it has fallen on Israel.
Israel, as a whole will probably not repent; but we can individually turn to obedience to God, and be protected as per Psalm 91. Read it all and follow it, and believe it.
Psa 91:5 You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, Nor of the arrow that flies by day,
The time of Jacobís trouble is Godís punishment on a disobedient House of Israel. The remnant of Israel are brought back to Israel and kept safe in the valley of Achor, as God punishes the rest of the world in the greatest time of trouble ever. This is the day of the Lord. That is another story. Jacobís trouble is not the worst time in history; it is the worst time for Israel.
Jer 30:4 Now these are the words that the Lord spoke concerning Israel and Judah.
Jer 30:5 "For thus says the LORD: 'We have heard a voice of trembling, Of fear, and not of peace.
Jer 30:6 Ask now, and see, Whether a man is ever in labor with child? So why do I see every man with his hands on his loins Like a woman in labor, And all faces turned pale?
Jer 30:7 Alas! For that day is great, So that none is like it; And it is the time of Jacob's trouble, But he shall be saved out of it.
Terror will increase; especially on the English speaking Nations. We need not fear if we believe, obey, and love God.
