     The communists have taken as their emblem a red flag, with the

hammer and sickle imposed on it. The red symbolizes the blood

they intend to shed in every country they conquer. While the

hammer and sickle are ostensibly symbols of the factory workers

and the peasants, we know that they make both of these classes

equally their slaves. Whips and bayonets would be more honest

symbols, but the communists were never honest. To be honest, a

man would have to violate all the basic principles of communism.

     It is interesting to trace symbols to their true origin and meaning.

All communists are in opposition to Yahweh. Even by universal

agreement, even the communists themselves say that they are on

the left; this is exactly as Yahweh classifies them. In Matthew

25:31‑34, 41 Yahshua says, "When the Son of man

shall come in His glory and all the holy angels with Him, then shall

He sit upon the throne of His glory; and before Him shall be

gathered all nations; and He shall separate them one from another,

as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats; and He shall set

the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left. Then shall the

King say unto them on His right hand, Come ye blessed of My

Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of

the world." He then continues, "Then shall He say also unto them

on the left hand, Depart from Me ye cursed, into everlasting fire,

prepared for the devil and his angels". So be it!

     Let's get back to the hammer and sickle. It is part of Yahweh's

irony that just as the communists borrowed one symbol of their

own coming judgment and destruction by being in the left wing, so

also have they borrowed symbols of their own judgment in their

hammer and sickle. Yahweh has His own

hammer and sickle, which He will use to dispose of His enemies.

     Brezhnev thinks that his communist hammer will shatter the free

world, however he didn't originate this idea. Those who first

planned the evil he is now trying to execute, had it all in mind. They

planned to keep the old Babylonian system going in all its phases,

religious, economic and political, this was a weapon to use for this

purpose. This is why the Bible continues to prophecy about great

Babylon, centuries after the old Babylonian city and empire had

ceased to exist. Yahweh also had this in mind and gave the answer


it 25 centuries ago. In Jeremiah 50:23 Yahweh says, "How is the

hammer of the whole earth cut asunder and broken! How is

Babylon become a desolation among all nations?"

     There is one hammer, which will shatter all opposition. All things

must measure up to the standard set by Yahweh's word and all

defiance will be broken. Jeremiah 23:29 records, "Is not My word

like a fire? Saith Yahweh; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock

in pieces?" Brezhnev and his masters that are operating in all

nations will soon find this is true.

     Communism is preparing to attack and conquer all the Christian

nations. Yahweh calls the Christian nations a vine, His vine. In John

chapter 15 Yahshua says, "Abide in Me and I in you. As the branch

cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can

ye except ye abide in Me. I am the vine, ye are the branches; he

that abideth in Me and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit. If

ye abide in Me and My words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will

and it shall be done unto you". The reds and their masters who

created communism and imported it into Russia, were called the

false vine, the vine of the earth. In Deuteronomy 32:31‑33 we read,

"For their rock is not as a rock, even our

enemies themselves being judges; for their vine is the vine of

Sodom and of the fields of Gomorrah; their grapes are grapes of

gall, their clusters are bitter; their wine is the poison of dragons and

the cruel venom of asps".

     When the Russians make their attack, they are injuring Yahweh's

vine, in punishment they will be reaped with Yahweh's sickle. The

prophet Joel tells it thus, "For a nation is come upon My land,

strong and without number, whose teeth are the teeth of a lion and

he hath the cheek teeth of a great lion. He hath laid My vine waste;

A great people and strong; there hath not been ever the like,

neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many

generations. Proclaim ye this to the nations. Prepare war, wake up

the mighty men, let all the men of war draw near, let them come up.

Assemble yourselves and come, all ye heathen and gather

yourselves round about; thither cause thy mighty ones to come

down. Let the heathen be wakened and come up to the valley of

Yahweh's judgment: for I will sit to judge all the heathen round

about. Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you

down, for the press is full, the vats overflow, for their wickedness is


     Revelation chapter 14 continues the account. "And I looked and

behold, a white cloud and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son

of man, having on His head a golden crown and in His hand a sharp

sickle. And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a

loud voice to Him that sat on the cloud,

Thrust in Thy sickle and reap: for the time is come for Thee to reap;

for the harvest of the earth is ripe. And He that sat on the cloud

thrust in His sickle on the earth and the earth was reaped. And

another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also

having a sharp sickle. And another angel came out of the alter,

which had power over fire and cried with a loud cry to him that had

the sharp sickle saying, thrust in thy sharp sickle and gather the

clusters of the vine of the earth, for her grapes are fully ripe. And

the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth and gathered the vine of

the earth and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of

Yahweh. And the winepress was trodden without the city and blood

came out of the winepress even unto the horse's bridles, by the

space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs" (200 miles). Not

communisms sickle but Yahweh's, does the reaping. It is

communism and the

Jews who created it and now rule it throughout the world, which

are reaped.

     Yahweh's great judgment is executed by Yahshua upon His

return. Revelation 19:15‑16 says of Him, "Out of His mouth goeth a

sharp sword, that with it He should smite the nations: and He shall

rule them with a rod of iron: and He treadeth the winepress of the

fierceness and wrath of Almighty Yahweh".

Therefore Isaiah 63:1‑4 states, "Who is this that cometh from Edom,

with dyed garments from Bozrah? This that is glorious in His

apparel, traveling in the greatness of His strength? I speak in

righteousness, mighty to save. Wherefore art thou red in thine

apparel and thy garments like Him that treadeth in the

wine vat? I have trodden the winepress alone; and of the people

there was none with Me: for I will tread them in Mine anger and

trample them in My fury; and their blood shall be sprinkled upon My

garments and I will stain all My raiment. For the day of vengeance

is in Mine heart and the year of My redeemed is


     The Reds think they have contrived something new, a secret

plot which will take everyone by surprise. Yahweh foresaw it all

many centuries ago, Russia's attack upon us and its failure, was

long foretold. In His scorn of their wickedness, Yahweh even led

them to adopt as their emblems, the symbols which

proclaim His judgment upon them. In the words of Psalm chapter 2,

"Why do the heathen rage and the people imagine a vain thing?

The kings of the earth set themselves and the rulers take council

together against Yahweh, against His anointed saying, Let us break

their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. He that

sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: Yahweh shall have them in

derision. Then shall He speak to them in His wrath and vex them in

His sore pleasure".

     The hammer that will shatter the nations is the hammer of

Yahweh's word, destroying all opposition. The sickle that will reap

the nations of the wicked, is Yahweh's sickle. The blood that will be

shed is that which will flow from the winepress of the wrath of

Yahweh, the blood of His enemies. The next time you see the

communist flag, remember that it bears the symbols of their own

judgment and punishment.
