In the 28th chapter of Deuteronomy, in the first 14 verses are 25 or more blessings the nation would experience if they would obey His voice. But the 15th verse says,
"But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe to do all His commandments and His statutes which I command thee this day, that all thee curses shall come upon thee and over take thee." (Deuteronomy 28:15).
Below are all the 666 different curses that have and are still cursing and plaguing our great nation. Seems strange, since America is the most advanced nation in the world, we should be the most healthy But still more strangely, we are the sickest nation in the world.
The reason is because, as Israel we are not obeying God's voice, hence, every last one of these curses plus many more have taken their toil in destroying the people in the USA.
"Moreover all these curses shall come upon thee and shall pursue thee and overtake thee, THOU SHALT BE DESTROYED because thou hearkenest not unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to keep His commandments and His statutes which He commanded you." (Deuteronomy 28:45).
Why does God want to destroy everyone who will not obey His voice? Because the Lord is closing out this old word order with all of it's carnality and self will. Christ is about to start His Reign on planet earth and there is no room for carnality and flesh motivated activities. One must be called by Christ to see or even to get into Christ's Kingdom of God on earth. Now can you see why God is so strict.
There will be no killings, murders, fights or arguments. No suffering, pain, agony, grief or heartaches. There will be love, joy, peace, goodness, faith, longsuffering, gentleness. This is why our natures must be changed into God's nature in order to be a citizen in that glorious kingdom of Christ.
We can just hear someone say,
"I'm a Christian but I don't have a nature like that, I'm still pretty fleshly. I get mad once in a while, how could I fit into Christ's Kingdom?"
That's a good question, isn't it? We'll try to answer it.
So, what does the Word of God say?
"For whosoever shall call upon the NAME OF THE LORD shall be saved!" (Romans 10:13) Then our first step is to call upon the name of Jesus to save us, right? Now it is going to take FAITH to believe, how are we going to get FAITH?
"So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God." (Romans 10:17)
With faith, we take the next step, Romans 10:9‑10:
"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation."
At the judgment seat of Christ, we are judged according to our walk and works in Christ after we are saved, some will really be ashamed they didn't do a very good job of being a Christian.
Let's get back to the 28th chapter of Deuteronomy where Yahweh God, our Heavenly Father is using all of these evil curses to destroy all the people who will not listen to His voice. Keeping all the Laws, Statutes and Judgments given to Moses isn't going to save us, but after having been called by Almighty God and believing in the Lord Jesus Christ will.
Because Our Heavenly Father made a New Covenant with the House of Israel, and Jesus Christ is the voice of God to day, If God made a new covenant with Israel how come America is still under the curses of Deuteronomy 28 in the Old Testament?
The answer is simple every Israelite in America is under the Old Testament curses because God's Laws have never been done away with, like the false Judeo-Christian Clergymen teach.
God has a time table to fulfill. We believe six thousand years was given to man to set up a perfect government. But man has miserably failed and so Christ is ready to set up His Kingdom on earth; and we have a little over 2 years left in this old world order, or at least that is what many believe.
Yet one simply cannot dismiss 1 Chronicles 16:15‑16:
"Be ye mindful always of his covenant; the word which he commanded to a thousand generations; Even of the covenant which he made with Abraham, and of his oath unto Isaac."
A generation is 40 years therefore it would appear that the covenant is to last 40,000 years. Could it be that we have another 34,000 years before Christ returns? But it would appear that to speed up the Great and Terrible Day of the Lord in cleaning house of this old planet earth is near, even at the door. Knowing there must be a great slaughter at the end of this age the Lord wrote this prophecy in Deuteronomy 28:49-50 about 3500 years ago,
"The LORD shall bring a nation against thee from far, from the end of the earth, as swift as the eagle flieth; a nation whose tongue thou shalt not understand; A nation of fierce countenance, which shall not regard the person of the old, nor shew favour to the young."
The Lord will even do better than that. He will bring 2 Giant Nations of whose language we don't understand, Russian and Chinese. As a result of these 2 great colossal nations with their companion satellite nations. The population of the world which is a little over 5 billion people, will be reduced by 2/3rds or 4 billion people will die.
"And I will bring the third part (1+billion) through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried; they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, it is my people: and they shall say, The Lord is my God." (Zech. 13:8-9)
These who escape the Judgment Fire of Yahweh God are Christians or those who will be Christians by calling on the name of the Lord in the thick of battle. Aren't you glad the Lord said,
"Whosoever calleth on the name of the Lord shall be saved." (Romans 10:13)
Now lets go to the 38th chapter of Ezekiel where the Lord is bringing these two colossal War Giants against the Modern Day House of Israel, the United States of America. Again we ask the question, why is Yahweh God bringing these two War Lords to decimate America?
The answer is very simple. The Kingdom of Christ is scheduled to start on planet earth in the very near future. But before the planet earth can be renewed and renovated for the New Kingdom, all the corrupt rebellious carnally motivated people who have spurned and refused the beautiful and gracious invitation of a patient and longsuffering Creator, to join Him in this New Kingdom of Christ with New Heavens and also a New Earth.
For two thousand years God has been sending His agents and missionaries world wide inviting them to join Him. Now time is running out, the deadline has arrived and the wicked and unbelieving must be finalized in this Great and Terrible Day of God Almighty. Let's turn to Ezekiel 38 and start reading from verse one to see how the Lord is going to accomplish this great task.
"And the word of the Lord came unto me, say, Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him," Gog and Magog have been identified as Russia and Red China with their capital cities of Moscow and Tobulsk, of Russia and Mongolia.
"And say, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws and I will bring thee forth and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of amour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords."
Apparently Gog had aspirations of going some place else, but the Lord turned him back by putting hooks in his jaws by creating lust in his heart for greater spoils of war in rich America. True Russia does have a Calvary of horsemen. But in this case, we think for advantage, the horses referred to here is modern mechanized horse power.
"Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet; Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters and all his bands; and many people with thee. Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them."
Persia today is Iran and Iraq, Syria, Turkey and Jordan, which are all Moslem blood thirsty warriors that hate Americans because of their protection of the Jews. Ethiopia and Libya and Northern Africa which are also Moslem terrorists like Iran and Iraq which specialize in Biological warfare and Biological weapons that likewise hate Americans.
Gomer and his bands with Togarmah take in all the Communist Nations of Northern Europe. All of these with Red China and their Chummiest Satellite Nations of Asia, and South Africa, will number into an army of more than 200 millions of fighting men and their equipment, as Revelation 9:16 tells us.
Why does God need all of these millions of fighting forces to bring judgment to America and the other Israel nations of the West? When 3 or 4 Nuclear Missiles from Russia would do the job with it's radio-active fallout and biological effects much more quickly and much more effective? The reason, again, perhaps for 3 or 4 good reasons.
One: To show what a Great and Mighty God, our Heavenly Father is, to be able to control all these huge nations with their millions of fighting man power and weaponry. To use them to execute judgement against the wicked in cleansing the earth.
Secondly: By using Gog and Magog and their forces to liquidate the wicked, would give reason to also destroy Gog and Magog after they accomplished their mission, because they also are wicked and evil and have no place in Christ's Kingdom.
Thirdly: Exploding Nuclear Bombs and Biological Warfare would pollute the earth with radio active fallout and toxins for hundreds of years. Fourthly: By super-naturally destroying Gog, Magog and their forces and rescuing His Christian Israelites from destruction, shows what a Great and Faithful, Merciful and Loving God we have.
Quoting from Ezekiel 38:18-22, we read,
"And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, that MY FURY SHALL COME UP IN MY FACE. For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel..."
Apparently at this time there will be a dreadful earthquake or a close flyby comet.
"So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground. And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains (the Israelite nations of the Western world), saith the Lord GOD: every man's sword shall be against his brother. And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone. Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am the LORD."
