The Apocalypse of Armageddon
An apocalypse is an unveiling of cataclysmic proportions. When people think of the Apocalypse, they immediately think of the Book of Revelation. However, many books of the Bible speak about the end time Apocalypse of Armageddon.
Zechariah 12:3, Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of reality to all the people all around, and upon Judah also shall it be in the siege against Jerusalem. And it shall come to pass in that day that I will make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all the peoples, all that burden themselves with it shall be severely wounded, and all the nations of the earth shall be gathered together against it (underlined emphasis added).
Psalm 83:1-8, O Elohim, keep not silence. Hold not your peace, and be not still, O El. For, lo, your enemies make a tumult; and they that hate you have lifted up the head. They take crafty counsel against your people. And consult together against your hidden ones. They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance. For they have consulted together with one consent; against you they make a covenant. The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites, Moab and the Hagarenes; Gebal, and Ammon, and Amelek; Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre; Assyria is also joined with them. They have helped the children of Lot (underlined emphasis added).
The tents of Edom are the offspring of Esau. Esau became Edom when he sold his birthright to his brother Jacob. See Genesis 25:30. Red Russia is modern-day Edom, while White Russia is Viking stock and, as such, are Israelites from the Ten Lost Tribes. However, we must understand Edom today is everywhere. They have even infiltrated the highest levels of Judah and Israel. Amalek also is from this same lineage. See Genesis 36:12.
Moab is modern-day southern Iraq. Gebal is modern-day Lebanon. Ammon is modern-day Jordan. Philistia are the Palestinians in Palestine today. Assyria is Assur, known today as Syria. The children of Lot are Ammonites. See Deuteronomy 2:19. These are the nations surrounding Jerusalem today, who are preparing for war—preparing to attack Jerusalem. Ishmaelites are the Arab nations of the Arab Peninsula. There will be other nations not mentioned here, which will include Iran, China and Russia.
Luke 21:20-28, But when you see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that her desolation is at hand. Then let them that are in Judea flee to the mountains; and let them that are in the middle of her depart out; and let not them that are in the country enter in it. For these are the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled. Woe to them that are with child and to them that give suck in those days, for there shall be great distress upon the land, and wrath to this people. And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led captive to all the nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down by the Gentiles, until the time of the Gentiles be fulfilled. And there shall be signs in the sun and moon and stars; And upon the earth distress of nations, in perplexity for the roaring of the sea and the billows; men fainting for fear, and for expectation of the things which are coming on the world: for the powers of the heavens shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. But when these things begin to come to pass, look up, and lift up your heads; because your redemption draws near.
World War III is going to be a world-wide war with dozens of nations involved. The prophecy in Luke 21:20-28 tells us what to watch for just prior to Jerusalem being attacked. However, Jerusalem is not the only people who will be attacked. The nations surrounding Jerusalem are most definitely preparing for war. However, they will have many allies, such as Russia, China, North Korea and others who will attack the United States of America and the United Kingdom. Why? Because, for the most part, the United States of America and the United Kingdom are Israelites. They are the “House of Israel,” whereas, those in Jerusalem are the “House of Judah.” The United Kingdom and United States are the offspring of the two sons of Joseph, Ephraim and Manasseh.
Unbeknownst to Anglo-Saxons world-wide, they are the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel, the blind and lost sheep. Let the historical facts be told. In 1 Kings 11:28, we read of Jeroboam, an Ephraimite, Solomon’s servant. Yahweh made him ruler of the “House of Joseph,” which includes Joseph’s two sons, Ephraim and Manasseh. Yahweh spoke to Jeroboam through Ahijah the prophet and said in 1 Kings 11:31-33, ...Behold I will rend the kingdom out of the hand of Solomon, and will give ten tribes to you; (but he shall have one tribe, for my servant David’s sake, and for Jerusalem’s sake, the city which I have chosen out of all the tribes of Israel;) because they have forsaken Me, and have worshipped Ashtoreth the mighty one of the Sidonians… (Note: Ashtoreth is Easter’s fertility goddess, hence the Easter eggs and bunnies).
Jacob’s name was changed by Yahweh to “Israel.” The Ten Tribe’s kingdom was given the national title of “Israel” and the national title of “Israel” was named on the two Sons of Joseph, i.e., Ephraim and Manasseh.
Genesis 48:16, Bless the lads, and let My Name be named on them, and the name of my fathers, Abraham and Isaac, and let them grow into a multitude in the middle of the earth (underlined emphasis added).
In 931 B.C.E., the kingdom was divided into two houses. The ten northern tribes became known as “the House of Israel,” and the two southern tribes of Judah and Benjamin became known as “the House of Judah.” The significance of these facts is to understand that, when prophets, such as Jeremiah, Isaiah, Ezekiel, etc., speak of the “House of Israel,” they are not referring to the Jews in Israel today. The Jews in Israel today are, for the most part, the House of Judah. Yahweh promised many blessings upon the “House of Israel,” but those blessings were never realized by the Jews in Israel. One such blessing was to be a great nation.
Genesis 12:1-3, Now Yahweh said unto Abram, Get you out of your country, and from your kindred, and from your father’s house, unto the land I will show you, and I will make you a great nation, and I will bless you, and make your name great, and you will be a blessing, and I will bless them that bless you, and him that curses you will I curse, and in you shall all the families of the earth be blessed (see also Genesis 17:1-5 (underlined emphasis added).
Genesis 17:5-7, Neither shall your name any more be called Abram, for a father of a multitude of nations have I made you. And I will make you exceedingly fruitful, and I will make nations of you. And I will establish My covenant between Me and you and your seed after you throughout their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be an Elohim to you and to your seed after you (underlined emphasis added).
We find the prophecy that Israel would be blessed in possessing the gates of their enemies. (Genesis 22:17) The Jews never possessed such things. However, it is interesting to note that, at one point in history, Great Britain and the United States possessed Gibraltar, the strategic western “gate” to the Mediterranean; the Suez Canal, the Panama Canal; and the Khyber Pass in Pakistan, which controls entry into the sub-continent of India. These are only four of the 21 land and sea gates that were possessed by Great Britain and the United States. The Jews never possessed these key gates of the world.
We find blessings of material wealth and blessings in the things of the ground in Genesis 27:26-29, and the promise that Israel would spread around the world in Genesis 28:13-14. None of these promises were fulfilled in the Jews.
The Ten Lost Tribes of Israel was the nation upon which the many blessings have been given, and they took on the national title of “Israel.” The name “Israel” was named on the two sons of Joseph—Ephraim and Manasseh (Genesis 48:16). However, this in no way forsakes Judah. In Genesis 49:10, we read: The scepter shall not depart from Judah. Yahshua the Messiah will not forsake Judah, but Judah was not given the birthright. The birthright promises were never given to the Jews. The birthright went to Joseph and his two sons, Ephraim and Manasseh. See 1 Chronicles 5:2, “But the birthright was Joseph’s.” The birthright included national prosperity, rainfall, crops, wine, livestock, offspring and a multitude of nations with military might. Another important fact to understand is that only the tribe of Judah are Jews. While all Jews are Israelites, not all Israelites are Jews (Romans 9:6). The Ten Lost Tribes were not considered Jews. Today, however, we can all become “spiritual Jews” by our obedience to the Word of Yahweh. Judah was only one of Jacob’s twelve sons.
In approximately 722 B.C.E, the Ten Northern Tribes, known as the “House of Israel,” were taken into Assyrian captivity for their disobedience to Yahweh’s laws, statutes and judgments. In approximately 586 B.C.E., the two southern tribes were taken into Babylonian captivity for the same reason.
Jeremiah 3:6-8, Moreover Yahweh said to me in the days of Josiah the King, Have you seen that which backsliding Israel has done? She has gone upon every high mountain and under every green tree, and there has played the harlot. And I said after she had done these things, she will return to Me, but she returned not, and her treacherous sister Judah saw it. And I saw for this very cause backsliding Israel had committed adultery (attending false Church), I had put her away and given her a bill of divorcement, yet treacherous Judah her sister feared not, but she went and played the harlot (parenthesis added).
The Ten Northern Tribes of the House of Israel were placed in Halah, and on the Habor, on the River of Gozan, and in the cities of the Medes. (2 Kings 17:6) When the Assyrians came under attack from the Babylonians, these Ten Tribes took advantage of the situation by escaping into the Caucasus Mountains of Russia. This is when these Ten Northern Tribes first took on the nickname of Caucasians, and this is where our high school history books first describe these nomadic people that just seemed to appear out of nowhere. Our high school history books referred to them as Celts, Cimmerians, Scythians, etc. These were the Israelites.
In 1314 C.E., the nobility of Scotland signed the “Scottish Declaration of Independence” at Arbroath Abbey. In it they stated their belief in the Israel identity of their people. Their declaration reads as follows: “We know from the chronicles and books the ancients gathered, that the nation of the Scots passed from the Greater Scythia through the Mediterranean Sea and the Pillars of Hercules (Straits of Gibraltar).”
“And sojourning in Spain … and convey there one thousand two hundred years after the outgoing of the people of Israel.”
We can see from Scotland’s Declaration of Independence that they identify themselves as Israelites.
The French Huguenot Counselor Le Loyer, wrote in his book, “The Ten Lost Tribes” (1590), “The Israelites came to and founded the English Isles.”
In 1813, Ralph Wedgewood, in his publication, “The Book of Remembrance,” demonstrated that England is Ephraim. Then in 1815, Reverend James Hartley Frere, wrote a book entitled, “A Combined View of the Prophecies of Daniel, Esdras and St. John,” in which he showed that the British were Israel.
Sir Frances Drake (1540-1596) wrote to Reverend John Foxe, in the famous “Martyrologist,” that the Church and queen were Israel. Also, John Saddler M.A., M.P., in 1649 in his learned work, “Rights of the Kingdom or Customs of our Kings and Parliaments,” advocated the Israelite origins of the English.
In 1761, Alexander Cruden published the first edition of the famous Bible aid, “Cruden’s Concordance.” The dedication page of the original edition contained these words: “That it may be said by the present and future ages, that King George III has been a Hezekiah to our British Israel.”
In 1816, Reverend B. Murphy published “Precursory Proofs” that the Israelites came into Egypt and Ireland. He went on to publish “The Advocate of Israel and the Isle of Erin.” In 1828, Reverend J.W. Brooks, wrote an article which he signed “Abdul,” which was published in the “Jewish Chronicle” in which he proves the Welsh to be of Israeli descent.
In 1840, Reverend John Wilson M.A., a Scottish Presbyterian minister, authored the classic book, “Our Israelitish Origin,” in which he combined the record of history and Bible prophecy with the most up-to-date discoveries of archaeology. His writings and lectures helped make the Israelite Identity Message widely known. The Israelite Identity Message spread to the United States, where one of the leading exponents was Rev. Joseph Wild, D.D., minister of Union Congregational Church, Brooklyn, New York, who published, in 1879, many books on Anglo-Israel, including “The Lost Ten Tribes.”
As far back as the 6th Century C.E., the early British historian, Gildas, known as “The Wise,” wrote of the era when the pagan Saxons were invading Celtic Britain. He wrote that these events were taking place, that our Heavenly Father might “try” His Israelites, to prove whether they loved Him or not.
Pastor Jacob O. Meyer wrote (2006) in his book, “Israel’s Tabernacle in the Wilderness,” on page 18:
As previously stated, the red, white, blue and purple-colored doorway has a deep spiritual meaning. You know, the beautiful flag of the United States has a history which is much more ancient than the year 1776. Today, you can recognize almost every Israelite nation by the color of their flags: the red, white, and blue. We, the people of the United States, are Israelites by birth. Our forefathers worshipped at this tent of appointed meeting in the wilderness, but, during the Assyrian captivity, they lost their identity. They forgot to worship Yahweh alone, they forgot the sign of the feast days and Sabbaths.
Ultimately, they migrated to Europe. Josephus knew where they were located during the Messiah’s era. From there they migrated to England and the United States, Canada, and Australia. It is no coincidence that the nations of Europe, the United States, Canada, and Australia, possess the bulk of the world’s wealth. It is no coincidence that they have become the world’s policemen.
Hosea 1:10-11, Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured nor numbered, and it shall come to pass that, in the place where it was said to them, You are not My people, it shall be said to them, You are the sons of the living El. And the children of Judah and the children of Israel shall be gathered together, and they shall appoint themselves one head, and shall go up from the land…
Before all of the English, Scandinavian, Welsh, Scottish, Irish, German, Dutch, Danish, Australian, Celts, Scythians, and Nordic people fully wake up to their identity, their blindness must be lifted. According to Romans, this will begin to occur once the last Gentiles have been adopted into the House of Israel.
Romans 11:25, For I would not, brethren, have you ignorant of this mystery, lest you may be wise in your own conceits, that a hardening (blindness) in part has befallen Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles may come in (parenthesis added)
The Ten Lost Tribes of Israel are scattered across the face of the earth, living and believing they are Gentiles. A remnant will awaken and understand who they are in these last days.
In Speer’s book on the origin of the common law, entitled, “The Pied Pipers of Babylon,” we find a very enlightening read under the section, “The Great Migrations”: Tradition, as well as historical sources, indicate that the people who later became known as Anglo-Saxons were one of three major migrations which came from the vicinity of the Black Sea to Europe. Other migrations of lesser proportions occurred, but for our purposes, these three deserve primary consideration. They are the Cimmerians (often referred to by their language identification as Celts,) the Scythians, and the Anglo-Saxons.
The Cimmerians or Celts: this group is identical with the Cimbri who attacked Rome and the “Cymry” from whom the Welsh claim descent. They are also the same people who settled Brittany and from whom the so-called “Brettons” of early English history emanated. These are also the ancestors of the Gaelic Scots and the Gaelic Irish. Many of the Cimmerians settled in Scandinavia when the climate was mild and far more attractive to new settlers than in our time.
The Scythians: Herodotus, the earliest Greek historian, described an ancient group of nomadic people whom he called “Scythians.” They occupied the area from which the Cimmerians had departed. Both people were of the same basic culture and built mounds for their dead. It is by means of these mounds we are able to trace the migrations of these people from the Crimea into Europe. The Cimmerians, Scythians and Anglo-Saxons were all mound builders, and we shall have more to say about this later. One branch of the Scythians was known as the Sakae. It is believed these are identical with the Saxons in Northern Germany with whom the Engles intermingled to form the Anglo-Saxons.
The Anglo-Saxons: The Saxons were already in northern Europe when they were conquered in the first century B.C. by a new migration of people called the Yngling or Engles, and the two peoples thereafter became known as the Anglo-Saxons (Engle-Saxons). It is therefore to the Engles or Yngling migration that we now turn our attention. Since this is the ancestral line of all Anglo-Saxon Americans, this migration is of particular interest. The Yngling people originally occupied a large territory north of the Black Sea, then made their way through western Russia, across Gothic Germany, and finally settled in the northwest corner of Europe, which is now Jutland of continental Denmark.
The tremendous influence of the Yngling migration into northern Europe is borne out by the fact that their institutes and their fierce love of freedom and independence were impressed upon nearly every people with whom they came in contact. The “people’s law” (common to all people, hence the “common law”) was universally accepted in northern Europe. The early German tribes called themselves “Deutsch,” which means “The People.”
Although the West German tribes, as well as the Scandinavians, retained many of their original institutes, these eventually became dominated by the concepts of the Roman Civil Law which acknowledged all power as emanating from the King or Emperor. Fortunately, however, before this happened, the institutes of freedom under the “people’s common law” had been transplanted to England where it continued its development quite independent of Roman civil law in the continent.
Shortly after the Romans left the British Isles in the fourth century A.D., certain Celtic tribes invited the Engles, Saxons, and Jutes (who had previously raided the east coast of England as pirates) to bring their bands over to England to help defeat other Celts. These Nordic tribes responded with exuberance, but later refused to return home. They established permanent settlements in England and gradually imposed their power over whole regions formerly occupied by the Celts. In due time, the Danes decided their Anglo-Saxon cousins had such a good thing that they came over and conquered much of England. Thus, through these various invasions from Europe, the institutes of the Anglo-Saxons took root in the British Isles just in time to escape the full impact of the oppressive Roman civil law which was moving northward from Rome and Constantinople.
One of the most puzzling aspects of the institutes of the Anglo-Saxons (as well as the more ancient Cimmerians and Scythian cultures) is the fact that they are almost identical with many of the unique institutes of the Israelites of the Bible. How could this be? The answer has been found in the burial mounds of these people which are scattered from Crimea to Sweden.
It will be recalled that in 922 B.C., the ten northern tribes of Israel broke off from the House of Judah to form a nation of their own. The Assyrians carried away these ten tribes and held them captive for over a century. However, when Assyria was conquered by Babylon at the battle of Carchemish in 605 B.C., the Israelites were able to escape and fled over the Caucasus Mountains into the region of the Crimea and the prairie likeness of present-day Russia. The Book of Tobit makes reference to Tobit, 721 B.C.E., a wealthy Israelite of the northern tribe who advocates leaving Nineveh, the capitol of Assyria, and going to Medes, which was close to this area. The burial mounds found in this area contain pottery, jewelry, trinkets and other artifacts which are “exactly similar” to those found in the mounds of Scandinavia. (Du Chaillu, The Viking Age, Vol.1, p. 216, 299.) And the burial grounds in the Crimea and surrounding area re-identified with the Israelites.
During the reign of the Tsars, Russian Archaeologists made extensive investigations into the mounds in the vicinity of the Crimea and the Kuban River. It is interesting that on the Crimean Peninsula, there is a “Valley of Jehosaphat,” and a place called “Israel’s Fortress,” which is surrounded by hundreds of these tombs. The Russian Archaeological Society made extensive excavations into these mounds and unearthed a great many epitaphs, some of them going back to pre-Christian times. The inscriptions are in Hebrew and many of these were taken to the Museum of Leningrad. Here are examples:
“I am Jehude, the son of Moses, the son of Juhudah the mighty, a man of the tribe of Naphtali, of the family of Shimli, who was carried captive in the captivity of Hoshea, King of Israel, with the tribe of Simeon, together with other tribes of Israel.”
“To one of the faithful in Israel, Abraham-ben-MarSinchah of Kertch, in the year of our exile 682, which the envoys of the Prince of Rosh Mesech, came from Kou to our master Chazar, Prince David, from Halah, Habor and Gozan, to which places Tiblath Pilesar had exiled the sons of Reuban and Gad and the half tribe of Manasseh, and permitted them to settle there, and from which they have been scattered throughout the entire East, even as far as China.”
“This is the grave of Buke, the son of Izchak (Isaac), the Priest. May his rest be in Eden at the time of the deliverance of Israel. In the year 702 of the years of our exile. Rabbi Moses Levi died in the year 726 of our exile.”
“Zadok the Levite, son of Moses, died 4,000 years after creation, 785 of our exile. (This refers to the Karaite era of creation, which makes that event 3911 B.C. This last date would be 88-89 A.D.).”
A summary of additional evidence identifying the mound builders of the Black Sea area with the Israelites of the Bible is presented in the “Utah Genealogical and Historical Magazine,” Vol. 25, pp. 6-10. Among other things it says: ‘Professor A.D. Chwolson examined in the Museum of St. Petersburg (Leningrad) from 1823 to 1869, more than 700 tombstones and many tablets and other articles of historical value. He translated the contents of many of these which are readable and wrote sixteen or seventeen volumes with some illustrated pages, which are now in the Library of Moscow, appearing under various titles, such as Pamiatniki Drevnei Pismennosti (memorials of ancient records) St Petersburg, 1892, Vol. 84; Drevnei Pamiatniki (ancient monument).’ Only a few excerpts have been taken from these records of Ancient Monuments and translated into the English language by Rev. Stern.
‘These archeological records are the most direct proofs of the origin of who settled in Southern Russia around the Black and Caspian Seas; and many other archaeological proofs found in Scandinavia and along the Dnieper River, clear up to the Baltic Sea, contain the records of a people, covering more than 1,600 years of their sojourn in this country, and eventually separation into new groups and tribes.’
More or less authentic documents and convincing Russian authorities on history and exegesis have suggested that the ancient Russians came from the cities of the Medes and from Assyria; and that they and the Scandinavians were originally one people for nearly a thousand years, known then as the Sakei, or Sacae, Saakha-suni, Gaeth, Messagete, Vargians, or Northmen, also called “Rous” or “Russ.” For centuries, there was a continuous common faith and belief among them and an exchange of ideas, as well as merchandise. Scandinavian sagas and Russian bylines bear this out. (Russian Antiquities, Bk. 1, Copenhagen 1850.) Many Dano-Norwegian sagas have Russian origin. For example, the Saga Orvard Odd. Archeological discoveries and Runic inscriptions on the memorial stones found in Sweden, confirm this common history of the people. Another proof of the closeness of Scandinavian-Russian relationships, is to be found in the great number of purely Russian proper names, the same as those which are generally to be read on the Russian monuments of the 3rd to 9th centuries of our era, deciphered among the Runic inscriptions and in various documents originating in the eastern provinces of Sweden:
‘According to Israelitish custom, the tribes that occupied the great plains of what is now known as Russia, left many suggestive geographical names behind them. For instance, the four rivers that empty into the Black Sea were thus named, Don, Dan-jeper (now Dnieper.) Danube (in Russian Donajets.) On the Donajets, they built the city of Ishmail; straight north of the Caspian Sea, they built the great city of Samaria, named after the capitol city of their nativity. They built the city of Kiev, which is called the mother of Russian cities, and had many ancient monuments, which bear record of its Israelitish origin. The Isle of Kertch was named after one of the princes or leaders.’
The burial mounds of these people extend the length of Europe. In Sweden and along the Baltic, they abound. Tanum Parich, Bohuslow, alone there are more than 2,000 mounds, the largest being over 300 feet in circumference. At Uppsala, nearly 600; at Ultona, 700. The greatest number found in any one spot is east of the ancient Birka Bjorne, where there are over 1,000 of them. It is possible to trace the migration of these ancient peoples from the Black Sea to the valley of the River Dneiper in Russia, to the Baltic and thence to northern Germany and Scandinavia. Since they belong to the same people, it is no wonder that those such as Sweden, contain ceramics and jewelry very much like those which are found in the mounds along the Black Sea. End of quote from Speer’s book entitled “Pied Pipers of Babylon.”
Mr. Speer goes on to conclude the Anglo-Saxons scattered throughout the world are the Israelites, and further describes the mounds found in the United States are identical to those found near the Black Sea.
With the understanding of who the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel are, many Scriptures have greater significance than before.
Jeremiah 10:21, For the shepherds have become brutish, and have not inquired of Yahweh, therefore they have not prospered, and all their flocks are scattered (underlined emphasis added).
Jeremiah 23:1-4, Woe to the shepherds that destroy and scatter the sheep of My pasture! says Yahweh. Therefore, thus says Yahweh, the Elohim of Israel, against the shepherds that feed My people, You have scattered My flock, and driven them away, and have not visited them, behold, I will visit upon you the evil of your doings, says Yahweh. And I will gather the remnant of My flock out of all the countries where I have driven them, and will bring them again to their folds; and they shall be fruitful and multiply. And I will set up shepherds over them, who shall feed them; and they shall fear no more, nor be dismayed, neither shall any be lacking, says Yahweh (underlined emphasis added).
Jeremiah 30:11, For I am with you, says Yahweh, to save you: for I will make a full end of all the nations where I have scattered you, but I will not make a full end of you; but I will correct you in measure, and will in no wise leave you unpunished (underlined emphasis added).
Jeremiah 31:10, Hear the word of Yahweh, O you nations, and declare it in the isles far off; and say, He that scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him, as a shepherd does his flock (underlined emphasis added).
Jeremiah 50:6, “My people have been lost sheep, their shepherds have caused them to go astray…”
Ezekiel 11:16-21, “Therefore say, in this manner, says the Sovereign Yahweh: Whereas I have removed them far off among the nations, and whereas I have scattered them among the countries, yet will I be to them a sanctuary for a little while in the countries where they have gone. Therefore say, in this manner says Sovereign Yahweh: I will gather you from the peoples, and assemble you out of the countries where you have been scattered, and I will give you the land of Israel. And they shall come there, and they shall take away all the detestable things of it and all the abominations of it from there. And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within you; and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, and I will give them a heart of flesh; that they may walk in My statutes, and keep My ordinances, and do them: and they shall be My people, and I will be their Elohim. But as for them whose heart walks after the heart of their detestable things and their abominations, I will bring their way upon their own heads, says the Sovereign Yahweh (underlined emphasis added).
Israel’s detestable things and abominations were such things as worshipping the fertility goddess Semiramis, aka Ishtar, Astarte, Ashtoreth, Asherah, Queen of Heaven, Venus, etc., and her Easter eggs and Easter bunnies. They also worshipped Nimrod with Christmas trees, Yule logs and mistletoe, and the little cupid god of Eros at Valentine’s. Today the lost sheep of the House of Israel are full of these same pagan rituals, false gods and unclean, detestable things. They are blind to Yahweh’s Sabbaths, set Feasts and new moons. Read again Ezekiel 11:20-21.
James/Jacob, the brother of Yahshua, wrote to all 12 Tribes of the dispersion. This manifests his knowledge of the other 10 Tribes being dispersed along with Judah and Benjamin.
James 1:1, James, a servant of Yahweh, and of the Savior, Yahshua the Messiah, to the twelve tribes which are of the dispersion, greetings.
So, the questions that many ask are these: Do these Israelites get a free ride into the Kingdom? No! Do they get an easier path into the Kingdom? No! Are they the only ones getting into the Kingdom? No! Everyone has sinned. The penalty for sin is death, (Romans 6:23). The only redemption from the death penalty is the blood of Yahshua. Romans 11 teaches that everyone must be adopted back into the olive tree, even the natural branches, who are Israel. They were broken off branches because of their unbelief and disobedience. They, too, must be grafted (adopted) back in. Each of us, no matter what ethnicity, must follow the same path. We must repent, be immersed into Yahshua’s Name, and walk as Yahshua walked, in obedience to the Law.
Galatians 4:5, That He might redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons (see also Ephesians 1:4-5, underlined emphasis added).
As a matter of fact, the Gentiles will enter into the true faith before the blindness falls from the eyes of Israel. Read Romans 11:25 cited earlier. Hundreds of Scriptures will begin to come together and make better sense now that you have this knowledge. Many respectable and well-educated men from most all faiths confirm the British-Anglo-Saxon-Israelite connection. Here is a partial list:
Archbishop Bond of Montreal
Revd. Titcomb D.D. Bishop of Rangoon
Rt. Revd. M.S. Alexander – Anglican Bishop in Jerusalem
Rt. Revd. Thornton D.D. – First Anglican Bishop of Ballarat Australia stated: “British Israel truth is most wonderful. I wish I had known it twenty-five years earlier. It makes clear so many things that have been obscure.”
Bishop H.A. Allen of the Wesleyan Methodist Church in California, U.S.A. who wrote “Judah’s and Joseph’s Birthright” back in 1902. This book is still a B.I. classic today, a century later and has run into millions of copies. Reviewing the book at the time of publication, the Baptist Messenger stated: “...that the arguments produced by Mr. Allen seem to be unanswerable.”
Dr. Dinsdale Young (1861-1938), the famous English Methodist preacher, who pastured Westminister Central Hall and was president of the Wesleyan Conference stated: “I increasingly believe that the weight of argument is with the British-Israel position. My heart warms to it, because of its splendid adherence to the Bible. The British Israel Federation has lighted a lamp, the golden beauty of which shall never be obscured.”
Revd. Robert Bradford – Belfast Methodist clergyman, member of Parliament for South Belfast in the British House of Commons spoke extensively on the message both in the U.K. and in Canada, and was to be assassinated by Irish Republican terrorists in 1982.
Revd. John Wilson
Revd. James McGaw, a reformed Presbyterian minister who authorized “Suppose We Are Israel.” He testified that: “The revelation brought to me through the study of the Israel truth has established my faith in the Bible as the inspired Word of G-d.”
Revd. Duncan McDougall – Free Church of Scotland.
Dr John Wellington Hoag (1915-1947)
Pastor William J. Washer (1947-1962)

Everything fortifies this conjecture; the extraordinary multiplication of this people, marked so precisely by the Prophets, the number of the tribes, the custom of those nations to dwell in tents, according to the oracles, and many other usages of the Scythians similar to those of the Children of Israel.” Dr. Abaddie published his work in Amsterdam and the original four volumes can be seen in the British Museum.

An Atheist’s Testimony
Charles Bradlaugh K.C. M.P., was one of the leading atheists in Britain. Even being barred from Parliament for a time because of his infidel beliefs. He would address huge atheist meetings in public halls across the country. He would read the promises G-d made to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, from the Bible, and then quite correctly point out how these promises have not been fulfilled in the Jews. He wrongly deduced therefore that the Bible was untrue and there was no G-d.
Late in life he was introduced to the Anglo-Israel message and became a regular attendee at meetings. The one-time Atheist declared: “I love to come. It is most wonderful what light the British-Israel truth throws on the Bible.
Mr. Bradlaugh made a very accurate statement—The Bible becomes much clearer when we understand who the Old Testament and New Testament prophecies are referring to.
The Jews that re-gathered into Israel in 1948, is not the “re-gathering” prophesied in the Scriptures. Those in the land of Israel today are re-gathered there by the will of the United Nations. The United Nations, (i.e. the Ishmaelites, Edomites, Assyrians, and Moabites, etc.) is to bring Judah together for destruction. Many nations are gathering together today to come against Jerusalem. The Apocalypse of Armageddon begins.
Zechariah 12:2-3, Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of reality to all the people all around, and upon Judah also shall it be in the siege against Jerusalem. And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all the peoples, all that burden themselves with it shall be severely wounded, and all the nations of the earth shall be gathered together against it (underlined emphasis added).
With the understanding of the USA and UK being the House of Israel, let’s scrutinize who attacks the House of Israel to start World War III.
Ezekiel 38:1-23, And the word of Yahweh came to me saying, Son of man, set your face toward Gog (chief of Russia), of the land of Magog (land of Russia), the leading prince of Meshech (Moscow) and Tubal (Tobolsk), and prophesy against him, and say, In this manner, says the Sovereign Yahweh, Behold, I am against you, O Gog (chief of Russia), leading prince of Meshech (Moscow) and Tubal (Tobolsk): and I will turn you about, and put hooks into your jaws, and I will bring you forth, and all your army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed in full armor, a great company with buckler and shield, all of them handling swords; Persia (Medo Persia = Iran), Cush (Ethiopia, Horn of Africa, Pakistan and India, offspring of Ham), and Put (also from Ham, Libya, Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco, etc.) with them, all of them with shield and helmet; Gomer (China, offspring of Japheth), and all his hordes, the house of Togarmah (Mongolia, Siberia, Manchuria and North Korea) in the utmost parts of the north, and all his hordes, even many peoples with you. Be prepared… After many days, you shall be visited: in the latter years, you shall come into the land that is brought back from the sword, this is gathered out of many peoples, upon the mountains of Israel (USA), which have been a continual waste, but it is brought forth out of the peoples, and they shall dwell securely, all of them. And you shall ascend, you shall come like a storm, you shall be like a cloud to cover the land, you, and all your hordes, and many people with you. In this manner, says the Sovereign Yahweh: it shall come to pass in that day, that all things shall come into your mind, and you shall devise an evil device: and you shall say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages (USA), I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell securely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates, to take the plunder and to take the prey; to turn your hand against the waste places that are now inhabited, and against the people that are gathered out of the nations, that have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the middle of the earth. Sheba and Dedan (Cush, Gen 10:6-7, Pakistan, Afghanistan, India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Philippines, Indonesia) and the merchants of Tarshish (Japheth, Gen 10:4, Javan [Japan] father of Tarshish) with all the young lions (aka, Tiger nations, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Singapore and Japan) shall say to you, Have you come to take the plunder? Have you assembled your company to take the prey? To carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take great plunder? Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say to Gog (chief of Russia), In this manner, says the Sovereign Yahweh: In that day when My people Israel (USA/UK) dwells securely, shall you not know it? And you shall come from your place out of the utmost parts of the north, (down through Alaska), you, and many peoples with you, all of them riding on horses, a great company and a mighty army; and you shall come up against My people Israel (USA = Manasseh and some Ephraim), as a cloud to cover the land: it shall come to pass in the latter days, that I will bring you up against My land, that the nations may know Me, when I shall be sanctified in you, O Gog (chief of Russia), before their eyes.
In this manner, says the Sovereign Yahweh, Are you he of whom I spoke in old time by My servants the prophets of Israel, that prophesied in those days for many years that I would bring you against them? And it shall come to pass in that day, when Gog (chief of Russia) shall come against the land of Israel (USA-UK) says the Sovereign Yahweh, that My wrath shall come up into My nostrils. For in My jealousy and in the fire of My wrath I have spoken. Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel (USA-UK), so that the fishes of the sea, and the birds of the heavens, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men who 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 shall call for a sword against him to all My mountains, says the Sovereign Yahweh. Every man’s sword shall be against his brother. And with pestilence and with blood will I enter into judgment with him; and I will rain upon him, and upon his hordes, and upon the many peoples that are with him, an overflowing shower, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone. And I will magnify Myself, and sanctify Myself, and I will make Myself known in the eyes of many nations: and they shall know that I am Yahweh (see Ezekiel 39:1-29) (parenthesis & underlines added).
In Ezekiel 38:8, we see the prophetic phrase “in the latter years” and in 38:16 “in the latter days,” confirming these events will be pre-millennial prophecies just prior to Yahshua’s return.
The term “Gog,” as used in Ezekiel, is defined in Young’s Analytical Concordance to the Bible, page 424, “A prince of Rosh, Meshek, Tubal, and Tiras, in ancient Sythia or Tartary.” In other words, the “chief” or “head’ of this nation. The term “Magog” as used in Ezekiel is defined in Young’s Analytical Concordance to the Bible, page 627, “The descendants of Magog and their land, called Scythia, in the north of Asia and Europe,” which is the modern land of Russia. Gog = Chief of Russia. Magog = land and descendants of Russia.
Ancient words did not have vowels. The cities of Meshach and Tubal would be written as MSC (modern day Moscow) and TBL (modern day Tobolsk or Tblisi). Russia also had the Tobol River. Meshach and Tubal = two Russian cities.
In Ezekiel 38:4, we see a “great company” that will be allied to Russia. In the following verses we see Persia, Ethiopia, Libya, Gomer, Togarmah. There will be others who are not named who are already cooperating with Russia in areas of the economy, national security, arms, as well as being allied with Russia in the United Nations. Iran is ancient Persia, aka Medo-Persians. The word “Medes” comes from “Madai,” a son of Japheth. Japheth is one of Noah’s three sons (Shem, Ham and Japheth). All nations today originated from one of these sons. Today we can see a great mixture of these sons. Genesis 9:25-29 is a prophesy about these three sons. Yahweh said, “Cursed be Canaan,” referring to Ham being the son of Ham, the father of Canaan (verse 22), and Shem was to be blessed of Yahweh to grow prosperous, which would include the “birthright” nations (UK-USA) i.e., Ephraim and Manasseh. And Japheth would be enlarged and dwell in the tents of Shem (Asia).
The descendants of Japheth have been identified as the Oriental nations of Asia. Ham’s descendants include the black and brown-skinned nations of Africa and Asia. Ancient Egypt was long known as Mizraim (Genesis 10:6), the name of one of Ham’s sons. Shem’s descendants include the Jews, Turks and Arabs, to include the ten lost tribes of Israel, making up the Caucasian and European nations. As a side note, it is wrongly presumed Ham’s descendants are evil or cannot be blessed because they were cursed by Noah when Ham saw his father’s nakedness, and did not cover him. The curse was to serve his brethren. Being a servant does not make one evil. Yahshua came as a servant. He taught us to become servants. Serving is honorable and receives blessing. Ham’s descendants may not have received the blessings of rulership over other nations, or great livestock and agriculture, however, they are no more, or no less, evil or righteous than Shem or Japheth’s descendants. Therefore, do not get the curse of Canaan twisted.
The Bible’s assertion that Persia (Iran) is an ally of Russia has proven to be very accurate. Russia continues to this day exporting nuclear technology to the Iranians. Iran is near to completing its nuclear bomb capabilities. Iran has stated openly that it will wipe Israel off the map and its leadership refers to the USA as the “great Satan”. The United States of America, United Kingdom, England, Germany, France et al, has attempted diplomacy and economic sanctions to stop Iran’s nuclear armament. Currently, there has been speculation as to whether or not the USA or Israel will strike Iran preemptively.
Cush, in Ezekiel 38:5, is Ethiopia in the Horn of Africa. Many migrated into the Indian subcontinent. Pakistan is a Cushite nation. Put is modern-day Libya, and a son of Ham (Genesis 10:6). Young’s Analytical Concordance to the Bible describes this region as: “The region west from Egypt, along the African Coast.” This can include Libya, Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco, etc. It is quite possible that not all of Put will join Russia. For example, Morocco has been very pro-American.
Gomer, and all his bands (Ezekiel 38:6) indicates a large population, with many ethnic divisions. Gomer is a descendant of Japheth (Genesis 10:1-2). The most populated of the Oriental regions of Asia is China. China is very anti-American. China is the largest communist nation on earth. It has enticed American factories and investments to be transferred to China as a long-term strategy to weaken America. It is still totalitarian, and building its military at a very aggressive rate. Media reports indicate China has become allied to Russia, and Russia is supplying advanced weaponry to China. China’s strategic enticement of American factories and investments being brought to China is one of China’s preliminary strategies in waging war with America. China also owns huge amounts of America’s debts.
China has wanted to conquer Taiwan, and the only thing that has stopped them is America. If China were to suddenly attack Taiwan, China is now in a position to demand America to stay out of the conflict. Such a predicament could be the tipping point for war. If America didn’t come to Taiwan’s aid, America’s credibility in the world would fall. South Korea and Japan would scramble for their own nuclear weapons, and America’s enemies would be drooling to attack. China has missiles aimed at Taiwan.
Togarmah of the north, with all his bands, is described in Ezekiel 38:6. Togarmah was a son of Gomer (Genesis 10:2-3) and closely related to the Chinese. North of mainland China is North Korea, Siberia, Mongolia and Manchuria. All of these are anti-American and are already influenced by Russia and China. The Russian-led alliance will be massive and heavily armed. Russia possesses more nuclear missiles than any nation on earth. China and Iran have been aggressively arming.
Many have wrongly believed that the object of the attack in Ezekiel, chapters 38 and 39, was the Jewish/Israeli nation in the Middle East. When Biblical prophecy refers to this Jewish/Israeli nation, it calls them “Judah” or the “House of Judah,” not the House of Israel, such as Zephaniah 2:7 (read entire chapter for the context of the end-time prophecy pertaining to this war.) When the Bible prophesies of the ten tribes of Israel, it uses the term Israel, or House of Israel.
Chapters 38 and 39 of Ezekiel are completely void of “Judah” and the Jewish/Israeli nation are not the object of this surprise attack. However, they, too, will be attacked (Psalm 83; Zechariah 12 and 14).
As we have seen previously, Jacob, whose name Yahweh changed to Israel, placed his personal name (Israel) on the two sons of Joseph—Ephraim and Manasseh. The nations of modern-day Israel (Ephraim and Manasseh) are the United Kingdom and United States of America. The descriptions in chapter 38 of Ezekiel such as “mountains of Israel,” “My people Israel,” “the land of Israel,” and “the House of Israel” reference the United Kingdom and United States of America, not Judah in the Middle East.
It is easily seen by Biblical prophecy that these nations would be blessed. They were the “birthright” nations, not Judah (1 Chronicles 5:2). These ten tribes of the modern world have come together in numerous multinational organizations such as NATO and the EEU. These nations are the most hated, envied and opposed by the forthcoming Russian-led alliance. In Ezekiel 38:8, we see the primary object of the Russian-led attack will be a melting pot nation “gathered out of many people.” It is completely logical the United States of America would be targeted by Russia, China, Iran and all the radical Islamic nations. It is a good strategy to take out the USA in an initial strike so America cannot help its allies. These attacking nations have always been envious of America’s wealth. President Barack Hussein Obama and his liberal hoard will not be able to re-distribute America’s wealth fast enough to satisfy these nations.
We see in Ezekiel 38:10-12, they come to take the plunder… Because of the intentional collapse of our economy, coupled with our children’s lack of knowledge of America’s foundations, these attacking nations will consider our states “soft targets” that can be easily conquered or occupied.
The World War can be defined as a war between the “haves” versus the “have nots.” The House of Israel received the blessings of the covenant Yahweh made with Abraham. The attacking nations are envious and want to steal the wealth and enslave the populace. Americans will be dwelling without walls (v. 11) and having neither bars nor gates. With America’s military policing the world, our enemies have ensured that there will be fewer forces available to defend the homeland.
In Ezekiel 38:13, we see Sheba and Dedan will not be among the Cushites attacking America. Genesis 10:6-7 shows Sheba and Dedan are descendants of Cush. Tarshish, a descendant of Japheth, is also not among the attackers. Tarshish was the son of Javan (Japan). These merchants of Tarshish and the “young lions thereof” would be the smaller Asiatic nations of Japan, Taiwan, Thailand, South Korea, Singapore, etc. These have been called “tiger nations.” Since there weren’t any tigers in the Holy Land, the Hebrew uses the word lion. Sheba and Dedan can also include such nations as the Philippines, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh. The Philippines are located among the “tiger nations/young lions.” India is a Cushite nation that most likely will not be part of the Russian-led alliance. Additionally, India was once part of the British Empire and retains historic ties to Great Britain.
Americans are, for the most part, oblivious to their vulnerability, prophecy or their national sins. As Hosea 4:6 foretells, they are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Many do not even know who they are historically, nor who their enemies are historically. They are the “blind sheep of the House of Israel.” Most are blind to Yahweh’s Name and His Son’s Name (Proverbs 30:4). They are blind to His laws (Malachi 3:7). Their practice of churchanity is vanity. They are blind to the “One True Faith”, i.e., the Way. Without Yahweh’s intervention, as seen in Ezekiel 39:3: I will strike your bow out of your left hand, and will cause your arrows to fall out of your right hand, it is highly probable that a coordinated attack from the Russian, Chinese and Iranians with EMP weapons, coupled with saboteurs, well placed inside the western nations, with nukes and dirty bombs, as well as off-shore vessels, could deliver a devastating blow to America and the UK, from which we may never recover. Yahweh’s divine intervention would allow for much of our weaponry to survive. Genesis 49:24 confirms this. We see Joseph’s seed, Ephraim and Manasseh (USA-UK): But his bow (weapons) remained in strength... Additionally, we see from Ezekiel 39:6 our weapons will send fire on Magog and those that dwell securely in the Isles (seacoasts).
In Ezekiel 39:7, Yahweh declares He not only intervenes, but that He will make My holy name known in the middle of My people Israel, neither will I suffer My holy name to be profaned any more, and the nations shall know that I am Yahweh, the Holy One in Israel.
This declaration indicates the nations of the ten lost tribes, i.e., the “House of Israel” (USA-UK), are not only sinful, but will not know Yahweh’s Name until this time. They suffer (His) holy Name to be profaned by substituting it with the titles of L-rd and G-d. This will not continue. He will make (His) Holy Name known.
In Revelation 19:13-21, we see Yahweh’s intervention is Yahshua! In Ezekiel 39:17, we see the beasts and birds feast on the fallen combatants, which is also described in Revelation 19:17-21. Furthermore, the seven months the House of Israel cleans up the weapons and buries the dead, corresponds to Micah 4:3 and Isaiah 2:4, And they shall beat their swords into plow shares, and their spears into pruning-hooks, nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore. The birds and the beasts eating the rotting flesh would help prevent disease from spreading.
In Zechariah 14:2, we see the nations gathered against Jerusalem (a parallel to Luke 20:21 cited previously), then in verse 12: Their flesh shall consume away while they stand on their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their sockets, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth. Notice the distinct difference from these in Jerusalem, versus those that die upon the mountains of Israel (USA-UK), whose flesh is feasted upon by birds and beasts. The consuming of flesh of those in Jerusalem, while still standing upon their feet, literally describes what occurs in a nuclear blast. In Revelation 16:12, we see these Russian-led armies that attack Jerusalem are led by “the Kings of the East,” i.e., Russia, joined by China, Iran, Esau and Ishmael, while Russia, China and Iran’s other forces attack the ten tribes of Israel (USA-UK).
The House of Judah in Jerusalem today is estimated at having hundreds of nuclear weapons they could use on their enemy, which will consume their flesh while still standing. They can deliver these by submarine launch, destroyer launch, land-based Jericho missiles, air craft, and quite possibly other means. If faced with total destruction, as described in Zechariah 14, wherein Jerusalem falls to the enemy just prior to Yahshua’s return, there is no reason not to believe the House of Judah will not retaliate with every weapon available. Keep in mind, while Zechariah 14 is about the war against the House of Judah in Jerusalem, Ezekiel chapters 38 and 39 is about the war against the House of Israel in the United States of America and United Kingdom. What are some of the Biblical warnings of this forthcoming war?
Matthew 24:3-14, And as He sat upon the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and the consummation of the age? And Yahshua answered and said to them, Take heed that no man leads you astray. For many shall come in My Name, saying, I am the Messiah, and shall lead many astray. And you shall hear of wars and rumors of wars, see that you are not troubled, for these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there shall be famines and earthquakes in various places. But all these things are the beginning of travail. Then they shall deliver you up to tribulation, and shall kill you, and shall lead many astray. You shall be hated of all the nations for My name’s sake. And then shall many stumble, and shall deliver up one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall arise and shall lead many astray. And because lawlessness shall be multiplied, the love of many shall grow cold. But he that endures to the end, the same shall be saved. And these good tidings of the Kingdom shall be preached in the whole world for a testimony for all nations, and then shall the end come.
Today, there are wars and rumors of wars. Nations are rising against nations, and kingdoms against kingdoms. There are famines and earthquakes in various places. We are also witnessing extreme weather with a huge increase of hurricanes, tsunamis, tornados, floods, etc. See that you are not troubled because these things must come to pass and they are only the beginning of travail. The good tidings of the Kingdom must include a restoration of the One True Faith that was practiced by the patriarchs, Yahshua, Paul and the Disciples.
Isaiah 58:12, And they that shall be of you shall build the old waste places, you shall raise up the foundations of many generations, and you shall be called the Repairer of the Breach, the Restorer of paths to dwell in (underlined emphasis added).
Jeremiah 6:16, In this manner, says Yahweh, stand in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk in it, and you shall find rest for your souls (underlined emphasis added).
Isaiah 46:9-10, Remember the former things of old, for I am Elohim, and there is no one else, I am Elohim, and there is no one like Me, declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things that are not done, saying, My counsel will stand, and I will do all My pleasure (underlined emphasis added).
Malachi 4:4-5, Remember the law of Moses, My servant, which I commanded to him in Horeb for all Israel, even statutes and ordinances. Behold, I will send you Eliyah the prophet before the great and terrible day of Yahweh comes (underlined emphasis added).
Zechariah 13:9, And I will bring the third part into the fire (tribulation), and I will refine them as silver is refined, and I 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, Yahweh is my Elohim (underlined emphasis added).
The final words in Zechariah 13:9, Yahweh is my Elohim, is the actual definition of the Name Eliyah (aka Elijah). The end-time message of the good tidings of the Kingdom must include the restoration of Yahweh’s laws and the restoration of a “Body of Yahshua” who declare, “Yahweh is my Elohim.” The restoration of the Sacred names of Yahweh and Yahshua must be preached before the end comes. Yahweh’s laws must be preached because “lawlessness” is multiplied (Matthew 24:11), and “lawless men” (Jude 4) have turned “grace” into lasciviousness, and Yahweh’s holy ones will come to execute judgment upon “all the lawless of all their works of lawlessness” (Jude 15).
Isaiah 24:3-6, The earth shall be utterly emptied, and utterly laid waste, for Yahweh has spoken this word … The earth also is polluted under the inhabitants of it, because they have transgressed the laws, violated the statutes, broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore has the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell in it are found guilty, therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned and few men left (Underlined emphasis added).
Lawlessness and the teaching of lawlessness in churchianity is one of the many evidences that leads to the last great day of Yahweh. Today, lawlessness is multiplied. Here are a few other prophecies before the last great day.
Zephaniah 3:8, Therefore wait for Me, says Yahweh, until the day that I rise up to the prey, for My determination is to gather all nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour on them in My indignation, even all My fierce anger, for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of My jealousy (see also Micah 7:2-6; Matthew 10:35-36).
Joel 2:30-32, And I will show you wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars and smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of Yahweh comes. And it shall come to pass, that whoever shall call on the Name of Yahweh shall be delivered, for in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be those that escape, as Yahweh has said, and among the remnant, those whom Yahweh does call.
We shall see many signs in the heavens and the earth. Mankind will become more evil. Wrong will be called right. Men will turn upon one another rather than doing what is right. They will fear those who can kill the body, rather than fearing Him Who can kill both body and soul. Here are some additional prophecies of the Day of Yahweh, and time of the end.
Joel 2:1-11, Blow the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in My holy mountain; let all the inhabitants of the land tremble, for the day of Yahweh comes, for it is near at hand, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness, as the dawn spread upon the mountains, a great and strong people, there has not been ever the like, neither shall there be any more after them, even to the years of many generations. A fire devours before them, and behind them a flame burns, the land is as the Garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness, yes, and none has escaped them. The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses, and as horsemen, so do they run. Like the noise of chariots on the tops of the mountains do they leap, like the noise of a flame of fire that devours the stubble, as a strong people set in battle array. At their presence, the people are in anguish, all faces have become pale. They run like mighty men, they climb the wall like men of war, and they march everyone on his ways, and they break not their ranks. Neither does one thrust another; they march everyone in his path, and they burst through the weapons, and break not off their course. They leap upon the city, they run upon the wall, they climb up into the houses, they enter in at the windows as a thief. The earth quakes before them, the heavens tremble, the sun and the moon are darkened, the stars withdraw their shining, and Yahweh utters His voice before His army, for His camp is very great, for He is strong Who executes His word, for the day of Yahweh is great and very terrible, and who can endure it (underlined emphasis added).
Joel 3:1-4, For, behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall bring back the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem, I will gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and I will execute judgment upon them there for My people and for My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and they have parted My land, and have cast lots for My people, and have given a boy for a harlot, and sold a girl for wine, that they may drink (see Joel 3:12-17; Zephaniah 1:14-18).
Amos 5:18, Woe to you that desire the day of Yahweh! Why would you have the day of Yahweh? It is darkness, and not light … Even very dark, and no brightness in it? (underlined emphasis added)
Zephaniah 2:3, Seek Yahweh, all you meek of the earth, that have kept His ordinances; seek righteousness, seek meekness; it may be that you will be hid in the day of Yahweh’s anger.
Matthew 24:20, ...and pray that your flight be not in winter, neither on a Sabbath.
Zephaniah 1:2-13, I will utterly consume all things from off the face of the ground, says Yahweh. I will consume man and beast. I will consume the birds of the heavens, and the fishes of the sea, and the stumbling blocks with the wicked, and I will cut off man from off the face of the ground, says Yahweh. And I will stretch out My hand upon Judah, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and I will cut off the remnant of Baal from this place, and the name of the Chemarim with the priests, and them that worship the host of heaven upon the housetops, and them that worship, that swear to Yahweh and swear to Malcam, and them that are turned back from following Yahweh, and those that have not sought Yahweh, nor inquired after Him. Hold your peace at the presence of the Sovereign Yahweh, for the day of Yahweh is at hand, for Yahweh has prepared a sacrifice, He has consecrated His guests. And it shall come to pass in the day of Yahweh’s sacrifice, that I will punish the princes, and the king’s sons, and all such that are clothed in foreign apparel … And in that day, says Yahweh, there shall be the noise of a cry from the fish gate, and a wailing from the second quarter, and a great crashing from the hills. Wail, you inhabitants of Maktesh, for all the people of Canaan are undone; all they that were loaded with silver are cut off. And it will come to pass at that time, that I will search Jerusalem with lamps, and I will punish the men that are settled on their lees, and say in their heart, Yahweh will not do good, neither will He do evil. And their wealth shall become a plunder, and their houses a desolation, also, they shall build houses, but shall not inhabit them, and they shall plant vineyards, but shall not drink the wine of them (see Revelation 14:13-20)

These prophecies provide us with a very clear picture of the terrible wrath Yahweh pours out in the great day of Yahweh. Those who do not serve Yahweh, through Yahshua, will have nowhere to hide and no place of safety. Those who serve Yahweh, through Yahshua, will find refuge in the Sacred Name (Psalm 54:1, 44:5, 9:10, 91:14, 124:8). When the nuclear blasts consume the flesh from man while he is still standing, the aftermath of these blasts create huge clouds of fallout. These clouds can easily encompass the earth which would cause the sun to be turned into darkness during the day, and cause the moon to appear blood red at night, and for the shining of the stars to fail. This fallout can extinguish all life.
Matthew 24:21, For then shall be great tribulation, since has not been from the beginning of the world, until now, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days had been shortened, no flesh would have been saved, but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.
The nations that gather against Jerusalem will use the base of Mount Megiddo as their bivouac area, in the Battle of Armageddon. There have been many battles fought there. The masses that will die there will be so great the blood will rise up to the horses’ bridles (Revelation 14:20), representing the sacrifice Yahweh has prepared (Zephaniah 1:7-8). These are all gathered in one place, the Valley of Jehosaphat, unlike the armies killed throughout the mountains of America, (Israel). Revelation has more on Armageddon and this sacrifice.
Revelation 19:11-21, And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and He that sat on it called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. And His eyes are a flame of fire, and on His head, many diadems, and He has a Name which no one knows but He Himself. And He is arrayed in a garment dipped in blood, and His Name is called the Word of Yahweh. And the armies which are in heaven followed Him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and pure. And out of His mouth proceeds a sharp, two-edged sword, that with it He should strike the nations, and He shall rule them with a rod of iron, and He treads the winepress of the fierceness of the wrath of Yahweh, the Almighty. And He has on His garment and on His banner a name written, King of Kings, and Sovereign of Rulers. And I saw an angel standing in the sun, and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in mid heaven, Come, be gathered together to the great supper of Elohim, that you may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, and small and great. And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him that sat upon the horse, and against His army. And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that worked the signs in his sight, by which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast and them that worshipped his image; these two were cast alive into the lake of fire that burns with brimstone, and the rest were killed with the sword of Him that sat upon the horse, even the sword which came forth out of His mouth, and the birds were filled with their flesh.
We see that Yahweh sends Yahshua into the war before the total destruction of the children of Israel occurs. The Apocalypse of these events reveals a restoration for those who have successfully made it through the tribulation because of their obedience to the Word of Yahweh.
Matthew 24:32-44, Now from the fig tree learn her parable. When her branch is now become tender, and puts forth its leaves, you know that the summer is near, even at the door. Truly I say to you, This generation shall not pass away, ‘til all these things be accomplished. Heaven and earth shall pass away, but My words shall not pass away. But of that day and hour knows no one, not even the angels of heaven, neither the Son, but the Father only. And as were the days of Noah, so shall be the coming of the Son of man. For as in those days which were before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and they knew not until the flood came, and took them all away, so shall be the coming of the Son of Man. Then shall two men be in the field, one is taken, and one is left. Watch therefore, for you know not on what day your Master comes. But know this, that if the master of the house had known in what watch the thief was coming, he would have watched, and would not have permitted his house to be broken through. Therefore, be you also ready, for in an hour that you think not, the Son of Man comes (see Isaiah 11:1-9).
Mark 13:27, And then shall He send forth His angels, and shall gather together His elect from the four winds, from the farthest part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven.
Matthew 19:28-29, And Yahshua said to them, Truly I say to you, that you who have followed Me, in the regeneration when the Son of Man shall sit on the throne of His glory, you also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. And everyone who has left houses, brethren, sisters, father, mother, children, or lands, for My Name’s sake, shall receive a hundredfold, and shall inherit eternal life (see also Matthew 25:31-33).
Revelation 21:1-2, “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth were gone, and the sea was no more. And I saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from Yahweh, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband.
Joel 3:18-21, And it shall come to pass in that day that the mountains shall drop down sweet wine, and the hills shall flow with milk, and all the brooks of Judah shall flow with waters, and a fountain shall come forth from the house of Yahweh, and shall water the valley of Shittim. Egypt shall be a desolation, and Edom shall be a desolate wilderness, for the violence done to the children of Judah, because they have shed innocent blood in their land. But Judah shall dwell forever, and Jerusalem from generation to generation. And I will cleanse their blood, that I have not cleansed, for Yahweh dwells in Zion.
Joel 2:26-27, And you shall eat in plenty and be satisfied, and shall praise the Name of Yahweh your Elohim, that has dealt wondrously with you, and My people shall never be put to shame. And you shall know that I am in the middle of Israel, and that I am Yahweh your Elohim, and there is no one else, and My people shall never be put to shame (underlined emphasis added).
Micah 4:1-2, But in the latter days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of Yahweh’s house shall be established on the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills, and people shall flow to it. And many nations shall go and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of Yahweh, and to the house of the Elohim of Jacob, and He will teach us of His ways, and we will walk in His paths. For out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of Yahweh from Jerusalem.
Amos 9:11-12, In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches of it, and I will raise up its ruins, and I will build it as the days of old, that they may possess the remnant of Edom, and all the nations that are called by My Name.
Zechariah 14:16-19, And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations that came against Jerusalem, shall go up from year to year to worship the King, Yahweh of Hosts, and keep the Feast of Tabernacles. And it shall be, that whoever of all the families of the earth goes not up to Jerusalem to worship the King, Yahweh of Hosts, upon them there shall be no rain. And if the family of Egypt goes not up, and comes not, neither shall it be upon them, there shall be the plague which Yahweh will strike the nations that go not up to keep the Feast of Tabernacles. This shall be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all nations that go not up to keep the Feast of Tabernacles.
Deuteronomy 30:1-20, And it shall come to pass, when all these things have come upon you, the blessing and curse, which I have set before you … and shall return to Yahweh your Elohim, and shall obey His voice according to all that I command you this day, you and your children, with all your heart, and with all your soul; then Yahweh your Elohim will turn your captivity, and have compassion on you, and will return and gather you from all the peoples, where Yahweh your Elohim has scattered you ... and Yahweh Elohim will bring you into the land which your fathers possessed, and you shall possess it, and He will do you good, and multiply you above your fathers. And Yahweh your Elohim will circumcise your heart, and the heart of your seed, to love Yahweh your Elohim with all your heart, and with all your soul, that you may live. And Yahweh your Elohim will put these curses upon your enemies, and on them that hate you, that persecute you. And you shall return and obey the voice of Yahweh, and do all His commandments which I command you this day ... For this commandment which I command you this day, is not too hard for you, neither is it far off … But the word is very near to you, in your mouth, and in your heart, that you may do it. See, I have set before you this day life and good, and death and evil, in that I command you this day to love Yahweh your Elohim, to walk in His ways, and to keep His commandments and His statutes and His ordinances, that you may live and multiply, and that Yahweh your Elohim may bless you in the land which you go in to possess. But if your heart turns away, and you worship other mighty ones, and serve them, I declare to you this day, that you shall surely perish; you shall not prolong your days in the land, which you pass over the Jordan to go in to possess. I call heaven and earth to witness against you this day, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse; therefore choose life, that you may live, you and your seed, to love Yahweh your Elohim, to obey His voice, and to hold fast to Him, for He is your life, and the length of your days, that you may dwell in the land which Yahweh swore to your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give to them.
The United States of America, the United Kingdom and Judah, must be punished for their open rebellion against Yahweh. In the U.S.A., we have witnessed Yahweh being taken out of our state governments, our courts and our schools. Injustice prevails. Right is called wrong and wrong called right. Our children are in open rebellion to all authority, especially parental. We are commanded by the Word of Yahweh not to be a debtor, yet the USA is the most in-debt nation on the planet. Most Americans are in debt. We are commanded not to practice usury with our brethren, yet usury is a daily practice. The killing of unborn children has been made legal. Homosexuality is Scripturally condemned, and those that condone it are going to receive the same death, yet homosexuality is being promoted throughout our nation, as same-sex marriage is now legal in all 50 states! We are commanded not to practice the Babylonian pagan practices of Xmas, New Year’s, Lent, Valentine’s, etc., and yet, in our ignorance, and/or rebellion, we do celebrate them!
Yahweh has had His fill. His wrath will be poured out. Many without knowledge will perish. However, Yahweh will not make a complete end of His people. The remnant will come out of Ch-rchianity, and the world, and learn the right and proper Way to worship Yahweh. May it be so!
