Israel in the Book of Revelation
No book in the entire Bible is so little understood as the book of Revelation. It is a prophetic book, history prewritten. It is much more difficult to understand than any other prophetic book, because it is written principally in symbols.
The period of time covered by this book is the entire Christian era and even beyond, into the beginnings of eternity. When the prophet Daniel wrote his prophecies, these were not for his own times, but for the remote future. In Daniel 12:4, 9 the angel Gabriel told Daniel:
“But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words and seal up the book, even to the time of the end...Go thy way Daniel, for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.”
In contrast to this, the angel told John in Revelation 22:10:
“Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand.”
So the book of Revelation prophetically covers all the time from Yahshau to our own day and onward.
No one can hope to understand this book unless he knows that it is an Israel book, most of the symbols are Israel symbols. When we recognize this, many of the difficult passages become fairly clear. Let’s examine some of these.
In Revelation 4:6-7, John is given a vision of the throne of Yahweh:
“And in the midst of the throne and round about the throne were four living creatures: And the first living creature was like a lion, and the second living creature like a young bullock, and the third living creature had a face like a man, and the fourth living creature was like a flying eagle.”
In Ezekiel chapter 1, this prophet also beheld the throne of Yahweh. He likewise saw that it was surrounded by four living creatures whose faces were respectively those of a man, a lion, a bull and an eagle. What is the meaning of these four living creatures on the four sides of the throne? THIS IS THE CAMP OF ISRAEL, it was formed in a hollow square, with the tabernacle of Yahweh in the center, as described in Numbers chapter 2.
The tribes were commanded to form their encampments in a hollow square, protectively surrounding the tabernacle in the center.
On the east side of the square camped the three tribes of Judah, Issachar, and Zebulun, under the leadership of Judah, on whose banner was lion.
On the south side were camped the three tribes, Ruben, Simeon, and Gad, led by Reuben on whose banner was the image of a man.
On the west side camped the tribes of Ephraim, Manasseh and Benjamin, led by Ephraim, on whose banner was a bull.
On the north camped Dan, Asher and Naphtali, led by Dan, on whose banner was a flying eagle. The tribe of Levi, were the priests and were in the center around the Tabernacle. This should not surprise you, for the symbolism is both clear and logical. Where should the throne of Yahweh be found but in the midst of the camp of His people Israel.
Around Yahweh’s throne sat 24 lessor thrones, on which sat 24 elders wearing crowns. In Revelation 5:10 these elders sing:
“Thou hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.”
This again identifies them as Israel. We read in Exodus 19:6 that Yahweh said:
“Ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests and an holy nation.”
There were 24 of these elders, 2 for each of the tribes.
We are not told directly how these 24 are selected. The logical explanation would be that 12 of them are the original patriarchs, the 12 sons of Israel. As to the other 12, Yahshua told the apostles;
“Verily I say unto you, that ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. (Matthew 19:28)
Remember this, they are NOT going to judge the Methodists, Catholics, Episcopalians or the Baptists, they are going to be judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
Let us interject here that until the distinction between Israel and Judah, as taught in the Scriptures, is clearly understood, a great portion of the Bible will remain a closed book. For there are many that have not the Holy Spirit and are unable to see what the Scriptures are telling them.
In order that we may deal with Scriptural evidence systematically, we will treat the subject as it affects the history of Yahweh’s Israel people:
First: From Abraham to the captivities.
Second: From the close of the Babylonian captivity to the coming of Yahshua.
Third: As the prophets foretell the activity of Israel and Judah, which predictions have been historically fulfilled.
Fourth: The future glorious state of both Israel and Judah.
First, let us review the facts in the history of the White Race from Abraham to the captivity of Israel and Judah.
Failure to recognize that Scripture distinguishes Israel from Judah sets all the prophetic books at variance one with the other. One prophet then declares another prophet is wrong. For instance, Isaiah, Hosea and Christ say that Israel is to be lost, while Jeremiah and Ezekiel declare Judah to be known.
Hosea tells us Israel would be as the sands of the sea for multitude, Jeremiah declares Judah to be few in number. Obadiah and Isaiah refer to Israel as an Island nation with large colonies. Jeremiah and Ezekiel state Judah to be strangers in all countries, without geographical inheritance. Isaiah, Hosea, Micah, Habakkuk and Paul declare Israel to be a Christian people but Ezekiel, Nahum, Zechariah, Christ and Peter tell us Judah is under the Mosaic Law.
We could continue to give other instances of such contradictions, if Israel and Judah were one and the same people. To teach they are identical makes the Bible a mass of confusion; but the Scriptures say that Yahweh is not the author of confusion:
1 Corinthians 14:33: “For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.”
To understand the difference between Israel and Judah gives a key that unlocks the truth of Yahweh’s dealings with His Israel people, clarifying the Bible facts and statements, and enabling one to understand prophecy and current happenings.
Take a red, a blue and a yellow pencil and mark you Bible as follows: Underline in RED all parts of Scripture referring to Israel; then with the BLUE, all passages which refer to Judah; use the YELLOW pencil for all that refer to the Gentile world apart form Judah and Israel. Do this and you will be well repaid for your efforts in the results that follow.
You will be astonished by previous failure to recognize the distinction Yahweh so clearly makes between these different groups. The RED will predominate, the BLUE will follow, while only about one-eighth of the whole Bible will have any bearing upon the Gentiles.
Beginning with Adam, we have the start of Biblical chronology and of the genealogical tables of the Bible. There are ten generations form Shem (Noah’s son) to Abraham. Eber or Heber was the fourth in generation from Shem. All of the descendants of Heber were Hebrews. Abraham was six generations later. He therefore was a Hebrew. The Hebrews were not Jews, although SOME of to days Jews are part Hebrew.
Now let us closely follow the facts: Abraham had eight sons. One son was Israel whose mother was Hagar; the Egyptian handmaid. One was Isaac whose mother was Sarah. After Sarah’s death, Abraham married Keturah and she bore six sons. Abraham, being a Hebrew, or descendant of Heber, HIS DESCENDANTS would therefore be Hebrews. Ishmael, Keturah’s six sons and Isaac were, therefore, all Hebrews. Their descendants would also be Hebrews, but their descendants WERE NOT JEWS.
If they are, then Ishmael was a Jew and, as the Arabs are the descendants of Ishmael, that would make the Arabs Jews. The descendants of Keturah’s six sons became the Brahmans of India.
Jacob had twelve sons of four different mothers. None were Jews. One of his sons was Judah, but in the sense in which we use the word Jew today, the term cannot be applied to Judah, for HE WAS NOT A JEW. Remember, please, they whom we call Jews today have certain characteristics and racially are a type that came into existence before the exodus; they were then known as the mixed multitude. But the majority of those known to the world today as Jews came into existence hundreds of years after Israel left Egypt.
This racial type or remnant we know as the Jew is only a small portion of the descendants of Judah, that being the descendants of Shelah the son of Judah through his Canaanite wife; one small portion of one son of Jacob/Israel. There are no Jews in any of the descendants of Jacob’s other eleven sons. Now Judah had three sons. The descendants of one son, Zarah, peopled the shores of the Mediterranean, leaving Egypt many years before the Exodus.
They formed the ancient civilization that founded the City of Troy, as well as other cities around the Mediterranean shores. They also moved as far north and west as the British Isles. No student of history would be so foolish as to declare the Trojans were Jews.
Pharez, the twin bother of Zarah, became the progenitor of the tribe of Judah; but the tribe of Judah were not Jews in the sense in which we employ the word today, to designate a particular type and racial stock. The tribe of Judah was divided BY YAHWEH into two Houses, the House of David and the House of Judah. There are no Jews in the House of David.
The House of Judah was further divided, but for our present purposes we need but follow the history of the branch that returned form the Babylonian captivity. It was a small number, which returned. The remnant form the House of Judah, with some of the Levites, intermarried with the people of the land; the Hittites, etc. The result of those forbidden marriages has given us the racial type, which we designate as the Jew. The study of the genealogical tables, with the tribal distinction of Yahweh’s people and the different houses into which they were divided, following the history of the posterity of these people, would eliminate most of the erroneous teaching now prevalent regarding Israel and Judah.
Now let us briefly follow the history of the Children of Israel whom Yahweh organized into His Kingdom at Mount Sinai. There they received His commandments, statutes and judgments as their constitution. Although they were organized into a kingdom, we recognize that the tribal distinction was kept during the time of the judges and up to the time of the coming of the Kings. That distinction is also shown during the reign of Saul
The time came for David to take the throne. He reigned first over Judah only:
“And the men of Judah came, and there thy anointed David king over the house of Judah.” (2 Samuel 2:4)
Read carefully the history of Yahweh’s people and you will find the Bible is very clear on these matters:
“David was king in Hebron over the house of Judah for seven years and six months.” (2 Samuel 2:11)
Later he reigned over all Israel for thirty-three years. This made a reign of forty years over both Israel and Judah. Read the rest of the second chapter of 2 Samuel, and the distinction between Israel and Judah will be so clearly set forth that only one who has made up his mind NOT TO SEE, after attention has been called to these facts, will fail to understand.
I know that all too many have let the false, lying, deceiving, traitorous Judeo-Christian clergy to cause them to park their brain at the church house door and that some fail to pick it up on their way out; do not believe or accept the truth that is presented to them, but think about it, use your brain. If Judah and Israel are ONE, then why do we continually find the expression Israel and Judah, or Judah only and Israel only, or the House of Israel, the House of Judah only? To one who reads the Bible and permits it to speak for itself, it is a continuous source of astonishment to find men and women calling themselves Bible students, teachers and also preachers who say there is no difference between Israel and Judah.
One thing is certain, in such a statement they are declaring that they do not know the history of the Bible or what it teaches. Until they know the Bible, they are not qualified to instruct others in its message. It is a dangerous thing to teach that which is not true in the handling of Yahweh’s word. The history of Israel and of Judah and the facts as recorded in the Old Testament are the very foundation on which rests the whole story of the Bible, more especially the book of Revelation.
The New Testament itself depends for authenticity upon the record as set forth in the Old. It would be impossible to know that Yahshua was the Messiah, were it not for the information given us in the prophecies of the Old Testament.
When Solomon died, the House of Israel revolted from the rule of the House of David. The House of Judah, however, remained loyal to the House of David. With Samaria as its capital, Israel set up a line of kings of its own. Judah, with Jerusalem as its capital, was a separate kingdom from Israel. Sometimes the two; Israel and Judah, were joined against a common foe, but more often they were fighting against each other and supporting the enemies of the other. There were families in Israel that remained loyal to the rule of the House of David, but no tribe as such ever returned to that rule. There is not one single passage in Scripture that states otherwise.
Through Jeremiah, Yahweh makes this interesting statement:
“And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce; yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also.” (Jeremiah 3:8)
Ask those who declare that Israel and Judah are the same people, to read that passage analyzing it in the light of their belief. Their contention is not only illogical but utter nonsense. Yet it is a fact that in the face of such strong Biblical evidence; and there are many such passages showing the clear distinction between Israel and Judah, the theological leaders, seminaries and Bible schools are continually trying to tell us there is no distinction between Israel and Judah. Continually they refer to Israel as Jews, and even change the name of Judah to Israel.
Here is another quotation for them to explain:
“Backsliding Israel hath justified herself more than treacherous Judah.” (Jeremiah 3:11)
Make Israel and Judah one and the same people referred to, and the statement become ridiculous. The whole trouble with religious teaching in our Judeo-Christian Bible schools and seminaries is that, instead of reading the Bible and studying it to find the truth, they but read the statements of MEN, especially those of the deceiving, lying, children of the devil antichrist Jews regarding the Book. In doing this they have accepted as truth the traditions or teachings of men (Judaism) instead of the revealed facts of the Word.
How often do we hear such statements as: Pastor Blank has said, so and so, with the declaration that because this person is a scholar, or said to be a scholar, he must be right. Or, Professor Doe, of such and such a school has published a book and he is an authority; he says Israel and Judah are one. In this process of accepting man’s word and quoting from men’s words, they have built up a case, but have no evidence of Scripture to substantiate their findings.
Remember, there is no authority (regardless of the scholastic degree or the standing of the scholar or school) aside form the authority of the Word of Yahweh. How clearly He has condemned false teaching when He said:
“The prophet (that is the Judeo-Christian preacher or teacher) that hath a dream, let him tell a dream; and he that hath my word, let him speak my word faithfully. What is the chaff to the wheat? Saith Yahweh.” (Jeremiah 23:28)
In Revelation 7:3, John saw four angels holding back the four winds, so that the great storms of war and conflict could not overwhelm the earth until the seal of Yahweh’s protection was placed upon His servants. John Heard the angel command,
“Remember these, O Jacob and Israel; Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of Yahweh in their foreheads.”
Yahweh’s servants are His people Israel.
“BUT THOU, ISRAEL, ART MY SERVANT, JACOB WHOM I HAVE CHOSEN, THE SEED OF ABRAHAM MY FRIEND. Thou whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, and called thee from the chief men thereof, and said unto thee, THOU ART MY SERVANT I HAVE CHOSEN THEE, and not cast thee away...FEAR NOT, THOU WORM JACOB, AND YE MEN OF ISRAEL; I WILL HELP THEE, SAITH THE LORD, AND THY REDEEMER, THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL.” (Isaiah 41:8‑14; 43:10; 44:1-2; John 13:18)
Again in Isaiah 44:21-23 Yahweh says,
“Remember these, O Jacob and Israel; for thou art my servant: I have formed thee; thou art my servant: O Israel, thou shalt not be forgotten of me. I have blotted out, as a thick cloud, they transgressions, and as a cloud, thy sins: return unto me: for I have redeemed thee. Sing. O ye heavens: for Yahweh hath done it; shout, ye lower parts of the earth; break forth into singing, ye mountains, O forest and every tree therein: for YAHWEH HATH REDEEMED JACOB AND GLORIFIED HIMSELF IN ISRAEL.”
Therefore, when John witnesses the sealing of Yahweh’s servants, he tells us in Revelation 7:4:
“And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of ALL THE TRIBES OF ISRAEL.”
Then the seventh chapter goes on to list different tribes which were so sealed.
All the tribes except Dan were mentioned, Dan was omitted for a good reason; the world of which this book is speaking, when it describes the various plagues which are to come upon the world as the consequences of the people’s wickedness, is the Roman world. This is the portion of the earth then occupied by the various beast nations of the Babylonian succession of world empires. By the time John wrote the book of Revelation, the tribe of Dn had already migrated out of this area. They went partly by sea, through the Straights of Gibraltar, into the British Isles and beyond. They went partly across Europe throughout the Danube valley to the Baltic Sea and to the peninsula of Denmark. Therefore, the tribe of Dan did not need special protection form the plagues which were about to fall on the Roman empire.
In Revelation 11. We find that John was given a reed, like a measuring rod and was told,
“Rise, and measure the temple of Yahweh and the altar, and them that worship therein. But the court which is without the temple, leave out, and measure it not: for it is given to the Gentiles.” (Revelation 11:1-2)
The prophet records in Ezekiel 40-43 he was similarly told to observe the measurement of the temple of Yahweh. This of course, was exclusively an Israel institution, no other race or nation has ever had it. It was always true that the temple was EXCLUSIVELY FOR ISRAELITES, and other were forbidden to enter the temple proper. Thus, we find Yahweh saying in Ezekiel 44:6-9:
“O ye house of Israel, let it suffice you of all your abominations, in that ye have brought my sanctuary strangers, uncircumcised in heart and uncircumcised in flesh, to be in my sanctuary. To pollute it, even my house: And ye have not kept the charge of mine holy things. Thus saith Yahweh: No stranger, uncircumcised in heart nor uncircumcised in flesh, shall enter into my sanctuary, of any stranger that is among the children of Israel.”
Consistent with this rule, John was told in Revelation 11:2:
“But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not: for it is given unto the Gentiles.”
Revelation chapter 12 begins:
“And there appeared a great wonder in heaven: a woman clothed with the SUN, and the MOON under her feet, and upon her head a crown of TWELVE STARS.” (Revelation 12:1)
This reference to the sun, moon and 12 stars is old Israel symbolism. It was first used in Genesis 37:9-11, where the boy Joseph tells his father Israel of his dream:
“And he dreamed yet another dream and told it to his brethren and said, Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and behold, the SUN AND MOON AND ELEVEN STARS MADE OBEISANCE TO ME. And he told it to his father and to his brethren: and his father rebuked him and said unto you, What is this dream that thou hast dreamed? Shall I and thy mother and thy brethren indeed come to bow down ourselves to thee to the earth? And his brethren envied him; but his father observed the saying.”
Israel had correctly interpreted the dram; the sun was himself, the moon was his wife Rachel, and the 11 stars were Joseph’s brothers, Joseph making the 12th one. We see n Revelation 12:1 that the symbolic woman clothed with the sun, having the moon under her feet, and wearing a crown of 12 stars, symbolized the Israelite race. The following verses make this unmistakably clear?
“And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born. And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.” (Revelation 12:2-5)
Obviously the man child destined to rule all nations with a rod of iron is Yahshua, for Revelation 19:11-16 clearly says so:
“And I saw heaven open, and behold a white horse; and He that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He doth judge and make war. And 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 wine press of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty Yahweh. And He hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, King of kings.”
We know this Israel symbolism to be correct, for it was Yahweh’s people Israel who gave birth to Yahshua.
Romans 9:4-5 speaks of the Israelites, to whom pertaineth the adoption (making reference here to the adoption of Joseph’s two sons) and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of Yahweh, and the promises; whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came. So we see it correctly symbolized Yahweh’s people Israel giving birth to Yahshua, while the red dragon stood waiting to devour Him as soon as he was born. We know that Yahshua, after his resurrection, did ascend to heaven where he sits on the throne of Yahweh.”
Revelation 12:6, 13-17 further confirms Israel’s identity:
“And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of Yahweh.”
The people of Israel spent centuries migrating through the wilderness to their new homes in northern and western Europe, far beyond the reach of the evil powers of the beast nations.
These verses further say:
“And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.”
Yes, the dragon did this from the very beginning. Read these verses: (Acts 4:1-3; 16-21; 27-33; 6:8 to 7:60; 9:22-23; 12:1-4; 13:44-45; 14:2, 19; 17:5, 13; 18:12; 20:1-3; 21:27 and 23:12)
Yahweh never abandoned His people Revelation tells us:
“And to the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place.”
This familiar Israel symbolism, for in Exodus 19:4 Yahweh tell His people;
“Ye have seen how I bore you on eagles wings, and brought you unto myself.”
The serpent and his children, having failed to kill off Israel, tried another weapon against them. Revelation 12:15-16 says:
“And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away by the flood. And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.”
Then we see also in Revelation 17:15:
“The waters which thou sawest are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.
THE SERPENT’S NEW ATTACK WAS AN ATTEMPT TO DESTROY ISRAEL BY MONGRELIZATION. First by the great Asiatic invasions under Attila the Hun and Genghis Khan were sent and then the Moslem hordes were sent to intermix with the Israelites on their march into Europe. They succeeded only hurrying the migration of Israel and were not able to over run them. Now in our day the serpent is trying again, with the immigration of all the Mexican, Jews, Negroes, Chinese, Koreans, Japanese and the other races and people of the world today.
In Revelation 12:17 the identification of Israel is completed;
“And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of Yahweh and have the testimony of Yahshua.”
We know that today all the real Israelite nations do have the testimony of Christ, not Judaism, but Christianity. Make the role call of the great Christians nations of the world today, those who have demonstrated what True Christianity can do for the nation which will whole heartedly follow it. Then you have the list of the Anglo-Saxon nations. They are Britain, Canada, Australia, South Africa, United States, Germany, Denmark, Norway, Sweden and heroic little Finland. There are pockets of Israel people existing in several other nations, but those named here are the predominating Israel nations. Although South Africa because of traitorous leaders have given that country over to pagan antichrist beasts.
The original city of Babylon had perished by the time John wrote this book, yet he speaks of great Babylon, in prophecies extending to the end of this age. Therefore he is speaking of the Babylonian system, which did not end with the fall of the city, but is with us even today. It completely dominates our present economic financial system, it forms a powerful portion of our present religious system, it dominates the judicial system of America, and it dominates the political systems of the world today. But, even Babylon must be subject to the laws of Yahweh, when the final judgment comes.
Revelation chapter 17 deals with religious Babylon in its present form that of Judaism. Chapter 18 covers the Babylonian economic system of today. From the description given, it is easy to identify those of whom it is speaking. An angel announces the fall of this system and the despair of those who have used it to gain world power.
In Revelation 18:23 he tells them:
“Thy merchants were the great men of the earth: for by thy sorceries were all the nations deceived.”
It also describes which merchants these are, who handle:
“The merchandise of gold and silver, and precious stones, and pearls; and fine linen and purple silk and scarlet; and all aromatic wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble; and cinnamon, and odors, and ointments and frankincense; and wine; and oil, and fine flour, and wheat; and cattle and sheep; and horses and chariots; and slaves and souls of men.” (Revelation 18:12-13)
There you have it, gold and jewelry, luxury items, the drug industry, clothing industry, liquor industry, wholesale foods and the meat packing industry ARE ALL CONTROLLED TODAY BY MODERN BABYLON; AND WHEN YOU FIND THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE LARGELY MONOPOLIZED THESE TRADES, THE JEWS, YOU HAVE THEREBY IDENTIFIED THE ECONOMIC SIDE OF GREAT BABYLON.
The Babylonian system in all of its phases is evil; it has brought misery and grief to the great majority of the people of the world for these many centuries. Therefore in this chapter, Yahweh prophesies Babylon’s overthrow and judgment.
We are warned to drive them out. Yahweh tells us in Revelation 18:4-5:
“Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and Yahweh hath remembered her iniquities.”
The judgment which we, yes WE, are commanded to execute upon great Babylon is pure Israel law. Revelation 18:6 tells us:
“Reward her even as she rewarded you, and DOUBLE UNTO HER DOUBLE ACCORDING TO HER WORKS: in the cup which she hath filled, fill to her DOUBLE.”
Under Israel law, a thief must always restore to his victim at least double what he stole. For example Exodus 22:9 commands:
“For all manner of trespass, whether it be for ox, for ass, for money, for raiment, or for any manner of lost thing, which another challengeth to be his, the cause of both parties shall come before the judges; and whom the judges shall condemn, he shall pay double unto his neighbor.”
This being the justice that is required of Yahweh’s people, surely it is the minimum justice to require of Satan’s children.
We are told in Revelation 18:24 the evil activities of this great Babylon, has been basically responsible for all the murders of the innocent. It states;
“And in her was found the blood of the prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.”
This book is prophetic of all time, even to the end of this age. This covers their guilt for the millions of Christians who have been murdered in Russia and Eastern Europe, in our own day. This includes other millions slain in the wars which their plots have brought on and are bringing on us.
Yahshua identified them for us in Matthew 23:29-35, He clearly referred to the same thing, for He said:
“Woe unto you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchers of the righteous, and say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets. Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves that ye are children of them which killed the prophets. Fill ye up then, the measure of your fathers. YE SERPENTS, YE OFFSPRING OF VIPERS, HOW CAN YE ESCAPE THE DAMNATION OF HELL? Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them ye shall scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city. That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias, the son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar.”
In carrying on to its conclusion the conspiracy originated by their ancestors, the wicked also take the responsibility from the beginning to the end. In Matthew 27:25 they acknowledge it, for we read;
“Then answered all the people and said, His blood be upon us and our children.”
In Revelation 20:4 we again we find Israel in the picture.
“And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them.”
This is the very thing Yahshua spoke to His disciples about in Matthew 19:28:
“Verily I say unto you, that ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon 12 thrones judging the 12 tribes of Israel.”
This is not the judgment of the wicked, for Yahshua has already executed judgment upon the Babylonian system and the beast nations in Revelation chapter 19. The last judgment of the wicked, is conducted by Yahweh, not by men. This reference to some sitting upon thrones and being judges refers to the disciples being judges over Israel, rule by judges is an old Israel institution.
During this age, Yahshua rules the beast nations with a rod of iron, compelling them to live by the laws of Yahweh. Micah 4:3-4 promises;
“And he shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore. But they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree; and none shall make them afraid: for the mouth of Yahweh hath spoken it.”
Men who think of themselves as religious, have thought they can bring this to pass by their own wisdom and power. They try to do this through alliances with Satan and his children in the United Nations, which bars all mention of the name of Yahshua. No good can ever come from a godless source; disarmament and peace can only come when the mouth of Yahweh hath spoken it. It will not come when it is spoken by Kennedy, or any other of the famous liberals.
The beast races have lived under their own rule, according to their own ideals, for well over six thousand years of continuous tyranny, cruelty, poverty, disease, misery and filth. They have rejected the laws of Yahweh, so they must receive the consequences of their own choice.
Proverbs 1:29-31 tells us:
“They hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of Yahweh: they would none of my counsel: they despised my reproof. Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.”
During the reign of Yahshua they will be compelled against their will by a rod of iron, to live in obedience to Yahweh’s laws and they will see what peace and prosperity result form it. Yet, they will not be convinced, for it is not in their nature to understand it. Yahshua explained all this in John chapter 14-17. Yahshua said;
“And I will pray the father, and he shall give you another comforter, that he may abide with you forever: EVEN THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH, WHOM THE WORLD CANNOT RECEIVE.”
