What the Kings of The Earth have wrought…Kings of the earth pt 3

Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?  The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.  He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.  Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure. Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion. I will declare the decree: the Lord hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.  Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.  Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.  Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.  Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.(Psalm 2)

Europe is a mess. So also is the United Kingdom. Formerly livable cities such as London,Cologne,Berlin, Malmo,Oslo, Paris and Brussels are now teeming with hordes of menacing people who hate the very societies that welcomed them in as refugees.

Who in Europe voted to have their own cities, towns and even villages over run with Muslims? German citizens are currently organizing neighborhood patrols to venture out into streets where German girls are regularly propositioned, spit on, accused of being whores, and sexually harassed and even raped!

As The American Thinker article The Madness of Frau Merkel says,

“The EU’s seemingly suicidal policy deliberately aims to dilute the percentage of ethnic Europeans in their native countries, to empower the new Franco-German capital in Brussels. This is exactly what Otto von Bismarck did in the 1800s to destroy the provincial capitals of German-speaking Europe, and to centralize all power in one Reich in the Prussian capital of Berlin. Fanatical German nationalism, xenophobia and militarism in the 20th century were a direct product of Bismarck’s imperial unification policy.

Which is why the EU’s kleptocracy can actually destroy the economy of southern Europe without triggering a voter revolt. The elite has knowingly imported more than 50 million Muslims from the tribal backwaters of Pakistan and the Middle East, to serve as welfare voters for Eurosocialist parties, especially in capital cities like Amsterdam, Paris, and Berlin. The EU has also imposed the mass-media cult fantasy of Political Correctness over its colonial peoples; and it has been nice enough to export PC to the United States by way of our Eurosocialist universities.

By now normal voters in Europe are so far removed from the center of power that they’ve basically given up. They are utterly powerless, because they will be scapegoated as Nazis if they ever rebel against the new Ruling Class. By now they are used to following orders, just like the olden times…”

Why would the “ruling elite”, the Kings of the earth and their experts baptize Europe in hostile young Muslim men?

The second Psalm tells us that the answer is two-fold; first of all it is because these elite leaders have “taken counsel against the LORD and His Christ”, and secondly it is because they are in the grip of a vain Imagination, which they seek to impose upon the people under their sphere of influence.

The counsel that the ruling elite have been taking, which is “Against the LORD and his Christ”, is the constant anti-Western Civilization curriculum in our centers of higher learning.The very best and brightest of Western nations have been inculcated in anti-Christian philosophies at our Liberal Arts Universities.

This is the experience of many in Western nations who scrimp and save to send a promising child to higher education; the first semester they come him, pro-green, the second semester they come home virulently anti-captialist, then they grow to hate the West for its “history of oppression”, they also become accepting of perversions such as “gay marriage”, and by the time they have graduated to enter into professional life, they are thoroughly anti-Israel.

Our ruling elites do not think like normal people, they have a different, Nihilistic set of values, which they try to impose on their own civilization.

I literally believe that the so called “Kings of the earth” want to recreate the Western world, which was formerly nationalistically divided, and Judeo/Christian, into something altogether different. President Obama said it feel when he ominously told his fawning admirers that they were on the verge of a “Fundamental transformation” of America. Why would anyone want to “fundamentally transform” what they love?

America has many flaws, but was until recently, predominantly Christian, (not a theocracy,obviously), in its consensus, orientation, and worldview. America has been the most religiously Christian country in the world, and has the greatest concentration of Evangelicals of any other country. American history has been marked by revivals, visitations of the Holy Spirit which shaped and marked the United States.

Europe also, although further along in decline from it’s Christian roots than America, has not been able to completely divorce itself from the residual  Christianity which it was once steeped in.  European Institutions, and much of European thought and mores were shaped by the Christianity which Europe was once steeped in.

The European mindset has been shaped by the ‘christian memory’, and is  reflected in such values as ‘tolerance’ and compassion for the poor and needy, the value of the individual, etc.

The United Kingdom also, was recently an incredibly evangelical Christian nation. The nation had been shaken by profound religious revivals, such as in Wales at the turn of the last century. An incredibly vast mission enterprise  emerged out of those revivals, as European,English and American ministers went forth to preach the gospel to the ends of the earth.

The Ruling Elite, who for the most part are Atheists, (or at least practical Atheists like the Sadducees) are at war with Christianity. They actually believe that they can create a new, globalist society, a “Brave New World”out of the ruins of the old discredited western world, which has passed away.

Christian civil society has been so successful, that even in decline, people all over the world still want to live in the west, where freedom and order somewhat reign. People want to live in England, Australia, the United Kingdom, and America, not Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, or India.

There is freedom and order here, and that freedom and order is a bequeathment of Christianity.

The Kings of the earth want to tear all of that down and there is no better way to do so, than to inundate the West with Muslims. Muslims are constant change agents.They wait until their numbers are significant enough, then they agitate to force societies to succumb to their vision of order, which is called ‘shariah’, Islamic law.

Already the Refugee “guests” which have caused such mayhem in Germany, Sweden and Norway, are demanding that European females take the compliant role, and cover themselves completely, as Islamic society dictates. They blame the women for the Rapes they commit, and the society which allows such women to go about freely and dress as they wish.

It is impossible to have an orderly society wherever there are a large enough percentage of Muslims. They agitate out of a deep sense of discontent, and murderous envy, and they have successfully crippled many civilizations, bringing them down by their constant agitation.

Islam teaches Muslims that they are the best people and all others are Kafir, subhuman dogs, infidels.  When it becomes obvious that mere Kafirs have more power and wealth, and manage orderly societies, they become enraged, knowing they could never create a beautiful society such as they see in Europe.

Islamic societies are cesspools of oppression, injustice, and tribal hatred. There is no place on this earth that Islam has ever brought peace. This doesn’t take any research at all to verify, as Samuel Huntington warned the world in his pre 2001 book,”A Clash of Civilizations”, “…Islam has bloody borders”.

I believe what we are seeing in Europe,Britain and America is explained in part by the second Psalm, the Kings of the earth are carrying out the counsel against “The LORD and His Christ”, they are murdering the Judeo/Christian  civil society, and using Muslims to do so, hoping they will be able to “put the genie back in the bottle” at a later date.

The Curse of The Law…miracle nation pt 31

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 these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee:  Cursed shalt thou be in the city, and cursed shalt thou be in the field.  Cursed shall be thy basket and thy store.  Cursed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy land, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep. Cursed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and cursed shalt thou be when thou goest out.(Deuteronomy 28:15-19)

The Covenant God made with Israel through Moses is not like the Covenant He made with Abraham. Remember that the Abrahamic covenant was ratified when Abram split sacrifices and laid them out in halves with a path between them, which God himself walked through the pieces in this form… a smoking furnace, and a burning lamp that passed between those pieces. This meant that the covenant was with God and Himself, Abraham and his seed being the unconditional beneficiary.

But Moses “sprinkled the blood on the people of Israel”, hence it was a conditional covenant with sanctions for obedience and disobedience. If Israel remained faithful to God, she would remain in the land, and be greatly blessed of the LORD.”All of these blessings will come upon you and overtake you…”.

The first 14 words of Deuteronomy 28 are a picture of the beautiful life according to God. You will marry, grow old together, build a house, fill it with children who bless you,they marry, and you have grandchildren. There is love, success in business, favor, family, health, joy, peace of mind and everything else that makes life good, as you worship the LORD together.

But should Israel defect…she would be expelled from the Land, hated by all people, scattered and driven into  exile, to the very ends of the earth.

Under the curse of the Law, you may have children but you don’t get to enjoy them.

Thou shalt beget sons and daughters, but thou shalt not enjoy them; for they shall go into captivity.(Deuteronomy 28:41)

The utter futility of living under the curse of the law is frightening. Everything you put your hand to falls apart, no matter how knowledgeable or skillful you are;

Thou shalt betroth a wife, and another man shall lie with her: thou shalt build an house, and thou shalt not dwell therein: thou shalt plant a vineyard, and shalt not gather the grapes thereof.  Thine ox shall be slain before thine eyes, and thou shalt not eat thereof: thine ass shall be violently taken away from before thy face, and shall not be restored to thee: thy sheep shall be given unto thine enemies, and thou shalt have none to rescue them.  Thy sons and thy daughters shall be given unto another people, and thine eyes shall look, and fail with longing for them all the day long; and there shall be no might in thine hand.(Deuteronomy 28:30-32)

A young couple marries hoping to grow old together. But the marriage falls apart, the business fails, others receive the profits, equipment breaks down and worse of all after the loss of marriage, there is alienation and estrangement of your children. He says they will be taken way from you (Physically? Morally? Spiritually?) and there won’t be a thing you can do about it.

Other nations shall rise up over you in your own land, and eventually God promised to exile Israel out of the Land as a chastisement for unbelief and idolatry. In the exile, wherever they would wander, the nations of the world would be astonished at the Jews, their suffering, their continuity of existence, their peculiar state of restless exile, “The wandering Jew” would become a byword;

Nations would bully the Jews, enslave them, rise up suddenly against them, their existence would be perilous, tenuous, the Psychological pressure would be immense.

Because thou servedst not the Lord thy God with joyfulness, and with gladness of heart, for the abundance of all things; Therefore shalt thou serve thine enemies which the Lord shall send against thee, in hunger, and in thirst, and in nakedness, and in want of all things: and he shall put a yoke of iron upon thy neck, until he have destroyed thee. 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: (Deuteronomy 28:47-50) 

Nations would bully the Jews, enslave them, rise up suddenly against them, their existence would be perilous, tenuous, the psychological pressure would be immense. Life for the diaspora would indeed be as precarious as a “Fiddler on the Roof”, one would never know when the next pogram would break out, or they would have to be disrupted and to wander once again.

And the Lord shall scatter thee among all people, from the one end of the earth even unto the other; and there thou shalt serve other gods, which neither thou nor thy fathers have known, even wood and stone.  And among these nations shalt thou find no ease, neither shall the sole of thy foot have rest: but the Lord shall give thee there a trembling heart, and failing of eyes, and sorrow of mind:  And thy life shall hang in doubt before thee; and thou shalt fear day and night, and shalt have none assurance of thy life:  In the morning thou shalt say, Would God it were even! and at even thou shalt say, Would God it were morning! for the fear of thine heart wherewith thou shalt fear, and for the sight of thine eyes which thou shalt see.( Deuteronomy 28:64-67)

This was the warning of the covenant, the sanctions which would come upon the nation should she consistently apostasizes from her God. The warning proved prophetic, for the sad history of the miracle nation since 70 Ad has borne the sad fact, that Israel has indeed languished under the curse of the Law of Moses.

The recent Holocaust of the Jewish people by the Nazis was by no means unique, for as Moses predicted ,Israel was taken out of her land, and scattered throughout the world, to the very ends of the earth. There have been small groups of Jews found in the remotest jungles of Africa, Asia, in India, and in China, Ethiopia and Rwanda, not to mention the millions who settled in Russia,the Ukraine, Turkey, and those who have endured a living death, entombed  in the Muslim world.

The Law of the LORD is perfect and demands perfection of those under it. Thus, “Cursed is everyone who continues not in all things therein…”. A provision of the Mosaic covenant, was the temple, which was the ministry of mercy for the miracle nation , and where priests served in the name of God, offering constant sacrifice to atone for the transgressions of the people.

But the temple was destroyed in 70Ad, and the service of mercy for transgression ceased. But not before a New Covenant was offered to the miracle nation. Jeremiah,Ezekiel and Isaiah all predicted a New covenant for the House of Israel and Judah, an unconditional covenant which would supersede the Old covenant, and ratified by the blood of the Messiah, as a propitiation for the people.

Is there a way out for the miracle nation, from underneath the curse of the Law? Not as long as Israel remains estranged from God, inventing and evolving  their own religion, as Jeremiah 2 predicted,

My people have committed two evils, they have forsaken ME, the fountain of living water, and they have hewn out for themselves broken cisterns that can hold no water”.

The Judaism of the Rabbis is a far cry from the Judaism of Moses, Elijah, and the prophets.

But Moses predicted, and so also the later prophets, that God would restore the captivity of Israel, and bring her back into the land, in the last days and completely resurrect her as a people, Spirit,Soul and body, at the end of the Age.

And the Lord shall scatter you among the nations, and ye shall be left few in number among the heathen, whither the Lord shall lead you.  And there ye shall serve gods, the work of men’s hands, wood and stone, which neither see, nor hear, nor eat, nor smell.  But if from thence thou shalt seek the Lord thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul.  When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come upon thee, even in the latter days, if thou turn to the Lord thy God, and shalt be obedient unto his voice;  (For the Lord thy God is a merciful God;) he will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which he sware unto them.(Deuteronomy 4:28-31)

Why The Heathen Rage ?…Kings of the earth pt 1

Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.  He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.  Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.  Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.  I will declare the decree: the Lord hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.  Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.  Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.  Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.  Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.(Psalm 2)

There is a ruling elite that has emerged in this modern world, which is at war with the God of the Bible and of Christ. The second Psalm is a prophecy of these men, calling them the “Kings of the earth and their rulers”. It is important to note at this point that this description is not limited to political figures, presidents, prime ministers or leaders. “The Kings of the earth and their leaders” refer to political and governmental figures indeed but is not limited to them.

What the Psalm is referring to is what we would call the “ruling elite” in all areas of influence in society. These men are the leaders in education,religion, entertainment, banking and finance, economics, the cultural movers and shakers, the shapers of men’s opinions, the gatekeepers in modern life.

The Psalm tells us that in the last days these “cultural guardians” will “take counsel together against the LORD and his Christ”. Where have they taken this counsel? How have so many of our elites come to an Anti-Christian consensus? It turns out that they received that counsel in our institutions of higher education.

The Psalmist also warns us that the “Kings of the earth and their rulers” are carrying out their counsel against the LORD and his Christ, by conducting a “liberation movement”, breaking Judeo/Christian society away from all of the former strictures and constructs which once formed western society.

The Kings of the earth and their rulers  have been on a long march through every one of our institutions, tearing down or plucking out by the roots the moral and spiritual foundational supports of our culture; the value of life, the meaning of humanity, the definition of marriage, Judeo/Christian sexuality, the differences between Genders, they destroy the unity of Society by agitating and exploiting disaffected identity groups.

These cultural elites have foisted upon the people of the west a philosophy of Nihilism.

This philosophy has been evolving in academia and has seeped into the mainstream of our society through the media, entertainment, and education is called Multiculturalism. Multiculturalism seemingly started out as a celebration of the “diversity” of humanity, and the recognition of the contributions of cultures other than western.

This philosophy evolved into the  manifestly erroneous idea that all cultures are in fact equal in value, and that any assertions of cultural superiority in any area (by Westerners),is proof of bigotry.

The end point of the evolution of this errant philosophy (Perhaps it was the goal all along), is that all cultures; i.e. Third World, African Tribal, Islamic, Bhuddist, Hindu, communist , etc, are superior to classical Western Culture.

Western Culture, the most successful, humane, reasonable, liberating,reductive, just, humanly elevating,merciful civilization the world has ever seen, is now portrayed as racist, exploitive, bigoted, greedy and murderous. The “left” has succeeded in slandering the West in spite of the manifest success of the culture. The youth of our culture especially, have been indoctrinated into this diabolical  lie.

I believe the reason for this “Vain Imagination”  is because of the fact that it is Western Civilization which is associated with Christianity, having sprang pout of it.

Thus the cultural flavor of the day, (In the face of the mysogeny brutality, hatred, open bigotry,blood lust and fervent murderous expansionism)is Islam. In the face of universal Islamic “Rape waves”, murder, assault, terrorism in astonishing magnitude,Our cultural elites not only insist upon the “Peacefulness of Islam”, but seek to engorge our formerly civil and orderly societies with millions of Muslims who openly hate and want to kill us.

This was prophesied in the second Psalm.

The Deeper Meaning of Cologne…Kings of the earth pt 2

Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?  The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying,  Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.  He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.  Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.  Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.  I will declare the decree: the Lord hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee. Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.  Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.  Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.  Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling.  Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.(Psalm 2)

The world has been stunned to see the sea-change occurring in Europe  since Angela Merkel opened the floodgates of Europe to Millions of Muslim “refugees”.

Heartbreaking video clips show the contrast between European welcoming committees with their posies and welcome signs and video taken in the Public trains of angry, vicious young Muslim men openly chanting curses upon the people of Europe at the toil of their voices, whilst they celebrate the victory of Allah over the infidel.

As armies of young Muslim men poured off the buses, fresh from cursing the unsuspecting Germans, they must have been bewildered by the German welcoming committees of naive, generous Europeans offering them flowers, placards, and water bottles. The few children that accompanied the Muslims didn’t hide their contempt though,(Children always tell all, don’t they?). The muslim children, as they poured into Europe,  made the throat slitting motion to let their knew hosts know what to expect.

That and the instant mayhem brought into Germany by her new “Guests” at tax payer expense, should have been an omen of worse to come.

Screen-Shot-2015-09-15-at-12.08.43-PM.pngRefugeesWelcome.jpg

If there was any doubt, New Years Eve in Germany removed it. Normally, Euuropeans are able to safely congregate and celebrate any number of outdoor festivals in safety.

But in Cologne Germany, in the plaza before the great Cologne Cathedral, where thousands gather year after year for New Years festivity, a group of newly arrived Muslims, 1000 strong, went on a rape rampage, literally swarming and attacking any female they could find, in groups of anywhere from twenty to fifty, disrobing German girls in public, calling them “Whores and sluts”, and literally sexually abusing them in the hundreds.

At first the German government tried to cover this up, downplaying the complaints, the Cologne mayor literally telling rape victims to “try to stay at arms length from the mobs, next time”. But the complaints of assault, robbery and Rape poured in by the hundreds and as the news became harder to control, Berlin,Stuttgart, Munich and dozens of other German cities began to report the same phenomenon.

The official German response would be laughable if  this situation weren’t so hurtful and portentious . The German government is now printing picture posters and handbills to try to teach their new Muslim guests not to molest, assault, grope and rob women.Of course there is no writing, in German or Arabic on these ridiculous posters, because the new guests are all illiterate.

There is a debate about instituting public transportation for women only. German swimming pools have been invaded also,with rapists attacking girls in their bathing suits, defecating in Whirlpools and showers, and even worse.

Is this merely a matter of the need for education?  “Achmed, you aren’t supposed to strip girls naked on the street. I am sure that is allowed where you come from , but we don’t do it in Germany”.

The deeper meaning of Cologne is this; The Cologne Cathedral is a symbol of Christianity. Perhaps not to the post Christian Germans, but certainly to the Muslims. The Muslim hordes in Europe may be illiterate, but they do instinctively know  a few things.

  • Those mass rapes took place in front of a Cathedral, because it was a church, the symbol of what these demonic hordes hate and despise the most. Muslims desecrate, that is what they do…they seek to destroy anything regarded as Holy.
  • There are even reports in Europe circulating, of Muslim men walking into church services, and urinating on the floor, just to desecrate it. The films from Cologne show Muslims firing Roman Candles and bottle rockets at the church.
  • The Muslims raped the German women as a religious obligation. Mohammed was a rapist and his followers are all fervent rapists. “Islam” means “Submission”, and that submission isn’t voluntary. The Germans are “Kaffir” which means in Arabic, “Sub human”, “infidels”.Therefore their women are to be regarded as booty in war.
  • The fact that no one objected to the desecration of the church, and few reacted to the assault on the women tells the invaders that Europe won’t defend its religion or women. This will bring more of this , not less. Scolding placards printed by leftist governments do not even address the problem. It will not go away until met with literal physical force.
  • Our “elites” are so biased against all religion, they refuse to take into account the dangerous religious element of Islam. Islam gets a pass in almost all areas of official society.

I don’t know why the “Kings of the earth” and their “Rulers”, the experts, have inundated their own formerly very orderly societies with literally millions of raping savages, and seem intent on bringing millions more in. I am sure it is part of their ongoing attempt to eradicate everything of “the LORD and His Christ” from western civilization.

I predict that Europe is one explosion or massacre or mass rape from a tipping point, and the commencement of the bloodiest civil war, that bloody continent has ever seen. Perhaps this “Iron, mixed with clay” is setting the stage for the rise of “the Beast” prophesied in Revelation and destined to appear in the final days.

Moses’ Prophetic Song…miracle nation pt 30

God commanded Moses to teach all of Israel a song which amounted to a prophecy of the entire future of the children of Israel, from their occupation of the Land all of the way to the very last days. The fact that all Israel knew this song, confirms the personal responsibility of each Israelite,  as these events unfolded, to either defect or to stay true to God.Israel knew what would happen, if they had just listened to Moses.

  • First of all the song recounts the blessing and special benefits God bestowed upon the miracle nation, whom He affectionately calls “Jeshurun”, (Upright One).

For the Lord’s portion is his people; Jacob is the lot of his inheritance.  He found him in a desert land, and in the waste howling wilderness; he led him about, he instructed him, he kept him as the apple of his eye.  As an eagle stirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young, spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them on her wings: So the Lord alone did lead him, and there was no strange god with him.(Deuteronomy 32:9-12)

  • But the song makes clear that in spite of the privileges and blessings, “Jeshurun” would corrupt himself, by idolatry. The tendency towards idolatry would prove to be intractable, in spite of may deliverances and blessings. The real underlying sin is exposed, they “forgot God” and “Lightly esteemed Him”.

But Jeshurun waxed fat, and kicked: thou art waxen fat, thou art grown thick, thou art covered with fatness; then he forsook God which made him, and lightly esteemed the Rock of his salvation.  They provoked him to jealousy with strange gods, with abominations provoked they him to anger.  They sacrificed unto devils, not to God; to gods whom they knew not, to new gods that came newly up, whom your fathers feared not.  Of the Rock that begat thee thou art unmindful, and hast forgotten God that formed thee.(Deuteronomy 32:14-18)

Now the LORD would punish Idolatry, at times by withholding rain, at other times by allowing enemies to be raised up such as the philistines, Amalekites, Moabites and Edom. Israel would turn away from their idols when their troubles humbled them, and would call upon God who in mercy would forgive them and restore them to himself.

And when the Lord saw it, he abhorred them, because of the provoking of his sons, and of his daughters.  And he said, I will hide my face from them, I will see what their end shall be: for they are a very froward generation, children in whom is no faith.(Deuteronomy 32:19-20)

* But Moses predicted a terrible and unbearable punishment to come upon them, for their continued unbelief and disobedience; God would for a season “hide his face from them”. The Aaronic blessing, which was ordained and composed by God himself, asked that “The LORD would make his face to shine…”upon the worshippers,(Israel).  To have the privilege of God’s face, ( i.e. attention, favor and concern) is the summation of all of the blessing heaped upon this miracle nation. For God to hide his face from them would be a disaster.

  • Furthermore the Song which God told Moses to teach to all of Israel included the fact that God would turn(for a season) from the People that he created for himself, to an ignorant non-people, to provoke them to jealousy as their idols provoked Him to jealousy! God would turn and bless  a pathetic people with no covenants, privileges, knowledge of God, nor rights to Him, beggars, lame, blind and halt!
  • This has been fulfilled because the Messiah Jeshua has brought into the knowledge of the Jewish God, millions of gentiles from all walks of life, reading the Jewish scripture, worshipping the Jewish God, naming their children Matthew, Ezra, Isaiah and Elijah!

They have moved me to jealousy with that which is not God; they have provoked me to anger with their vanities: and I will move them to jealousy with those which are not a people; I will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation.( Deuteronomy 32:21)

  • Furthermore Moses taught through this Divinely inspired song, that Israel would have to undergo periods of Divine wrath, including exile, scattering among the nations, to the ends of the earth and relentless persecution which cannot naturally be explained.

For a fire is kindled in mine anger, and shall burn unto the lowest hell, and shall consume the earth with her increase, and set on fire the foundations of the mountains. I will heap mischiefs upon them; I will spend mine arrows upon them. They shall be burnt with hunger, and devoured with burning heat, and with bitter destruction: I will also send the teeth of beasts upon them, with the poison of serpents of the dust. The sword without, and terror within, shall destroy both the young man and the virgin, the suckling also with the man of gray hairs. (Deuteronomy 32:22-25)

This is a poetic description of the evils which would be heaped upon Israel in her apostasy and rebellion, when the time of God’s long forbearance had come to an end, and there was no repentance on the part of the chosen people. God taught the people of Israel to sing of the coming wrath, it was part of the national catechism, the Song of Moses, the warning of future apostasy and wrath.

  • But Moses predicted that the nation would remain intact and not be annihilated inspite of the miseries and scattering which Israel endured. There would always be an Israel.

I said, I would scatter them into corners, I would make the remembrance of them to cease from among men: Were it not that I feared the wrath of the enemy, lest their adversaries should behave themselves strangely, and lest they should say, Our hand is high, and the Lord hath not done all this. For they are a nation void of counsel, neither is there any understanding in them. … … (Deuteronomy 32:26-30)

In this stanza of the Song of Moses, the LORD assures that He would not totally obliterate His prodigal and rebellious son; partly because He knows that the human enemies of the LORD and of Israel would boast in the total defeat of their foe, thinking that they themselves (and their false gods) had brought the destruction of God’s people to pass, and also out of a broken-hearted yearning and a purpose to restore the prodigal, in the last days.

The rendering, “I would scatter them into corners…”, is better rendered, “I would scatter them like the wind…” or “I would blow them away…”, i.e. “I would make an utter end of them…”.

 

  • The last Stanza of the Song of Moses takes us to the end, the “Day of Vengeance” of our God upon the gentiles, who had furthered Israel’s miseries in her affliction.

Is not this laid up in store with me, and sealed up among my treasures? To me belongeth vengeance and recompence; their foot shall slide in due time: for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things that shall come upon them make haste. ( Deuteronomy 32:33-34)

We have arrived at the last stanza of the Song of Moses. It is thoroughly apocalyptic.

Moses predicted that this would eventually bring the wrath of God upon the wayward nation and He would scatter them to the very ends of the earth. But the LORD would never make an absolute end of Israel, as He will soon with her enemies.

. The Glory of His name is bound to the Jews, the LORD will not allow His name to be debased among the heathen, Why should the heathen say that the Lord brought them out of Egypt to destroy them? The LORD has been using the surrounding nations as a scourge of His people, but as Zechariah said, They have taken it further than HE wanted them to.

…Thus saith the Lord of Hosts, I am jealous for Jerusalem and for Zion with a great jealousy. And I am very sore displeased with the heathen that are at ease: for I was but a little displeased, and they helped forward the affliction.(Zechariah 1:14-15 )

Therefore His purpose is to preserve the nation, and to reconstitute them in the last days, and to bring Israel to repentance after a long night of “Jacob’s trouble”. In the process The LORD has been preparing a judgment for His adversaries, who hated and persecuted Israel all these centuries. This is the meaning of the “great Tribulation” such as never seen before nor shall it ever be seen in this manner again!

Is not this laid up in store for me and sealed up among my treasures?

  • Moses saw that at the end of time, in the day of God’s judgment on the nations, Israel would be in a very powerless and vulnerable position before the nations of the World. All of her lovers are gone, and the nations gather to attack her, and to lay waste and destroy her…

For the Lord shall judge his people, and repent himself for his servants, when he seeth that their power is gone, and there is none shut up, or left. And he shall say, Where are their gods, their rock in whom they trusted, Which did eat the fat of their sacrifices, and drank the wine of their drink offerings? let them rise up and help you, and be your protection. See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.(Deuteronomy 32:36-39)

When He sees that she is without strength…

  • Moses saw (and taught) that the Messiah comes at the end as a Messianic avenger.

For I lift up my hand to heaven, and say, I live for ever. If I whet my glittering sword, and mine hand take hold on judgment; I will render vengeance to mine enemies, and will reward them that hate me. I will make mine arrows drunk with blood, and my sword shall devour flesh; and that with the blood of the slain and of the captives, from the beginning of revenges upon the enemy. Rejoice, O ye nations, with his people: for he will avenge the blood of his servants, and will render vengeance to his adversaries, and will be merciful unto his land, and to his people.(Deuteronomy 32:40-43)

According to the Song of Moses, the Intervention of the LORD against Israel’s enemies comes at the end. It comes at a time when the besieged nation has lost all strength to resist her bloodthirsty enemies, and are in danger of being annihilated. Jerusalem itself shall be taken, and plundered according to the prophet Zechariah.

Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city. Then shall the Lord go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.(Zechariah 14:1-3)

Then shall the LORD go forth and fight…

Look at the history of the miracle nation and see that everything Moses taught them at the beginning, in national song, has come to pass. We have seen Israel’s national apostasy, The total and complete universal scattering of the nation in 70Ad, the pervasive mystery of anti-semitism, the return to the land after two thousand years, and now the gathering of the nations to annihilate her.  All that remains is the Messianic avenger. Maranatha!

Moses Told Israel What Would Happen…miracle nation pt 30

Give ear, O ye heavens, and I will speak; and hear, O earth, the words of my mouth. My doctrine shall drop as the rain, my speech shall distil as the dew, as the small rain upon the tender herb, and as the showers upon the grass: (Deuteronomy 32:1-2)

In the latter part of his life, Moses, the servant of God, taught Israel a song which prophesied the entire future of the people of Israel. The LORD had called Moses and Joshua into the tabernacle to announce Moses’ death, and to impart to Moses the song, which he was to teach Israel, as “ a witness for me (the LORD) against them“.

And the Lord said unto Moses, Behold, thou shalt sleep with thy fathers; and this people will rise up, and go a whoring after the gods of the strangers of the land, whither they go to be among them, and will forsake me, and break my covenant which I have made with them. Then my anger shall be kindled against them in that day, and I will forsake them, and I will hide my face from them, and they shall be devoured, and many evils and troubles shall befall them; so that they will say in that day, Are not these evils come upon us, because our God is not among us? And I will surely hide my face in that day for all the evils which they shall have wrought, in that they are turned unto other gods. Now therefore write ye this song for you, and teach it the children of Israel: put it in their mouths, that this song may be a witness for me against the children of Israel.(Deuteronomy 31:16-19)

This song would be impressed upon the imaginations of God’s people, to serve as a point of reference through Israel’s darkest future days. Particularly when tumultuous future national experiences and events (such as the holocaust) would literally call the reality of the goodness of the God of Israel into question.

The Most High God lays out the entire future of His elect people. In their darkest days they could yet be mindful that all of their troubles were foretold and that though “weeping may endure through a long, long evening…”, in the end, joy really does break forth in the morning.

He calls upon “Heaven and Earth” as covenant witnesses to the marriage between the LORD and His Wife,Israel.

The received teaching of God entrusted to Israel, is intended to bless the whole world. The Word of God revealed through Moses shall fall as the rain, upon the just and unjust alike, through the grace and generosity of God. The teaching of God shall refresh fallen men everywhere, in every nation , even to the very ends of the earth, as the dew on the morning grass.

A later prophet would tell us that “…all men are as grass”, for the most part withering and blasted in the arid wilderness that is this sinful world. But wherever the doctrine of Moses and the prophets and apostles has fallen, the brown turns to green, and the parched souls burst forth into life.

“My doctrine shall fall as the rain…” says the Lord of the universe, the God of Israel. Whenever Israel would in the future forsake her Lord, one of the consequences would be drought and famine, signifying the spiritual reality.

Whether he realizes it or not, man lives by the Word of God, every Word that comes from the mouth of God. Thus there is no drought as severe as a drought for the Word of God, nor is there any more severe famine as that of the Word of God.

But the purpose of the benevolent God is stated at the outset, that through Israel, the lifegiving teaching, the Torah of God should descend from heaven upon the sere earth, and that over the earth the teaching of life should distill, and refresh the cracked and thirsty hearts of sinful men…

Ten Holy Words…miracle nation pt 29

And God spake all these words, saying, I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.

 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.

Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.

 Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:

 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:  For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

 Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.

 Thou shalt not kill.

 Thou shalt not commit adultery.

Thou shalt not steal.

 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.

 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbor’s.(Exodus 20:1-17)

The congregation of Israel, at least 2 million strong, stand trembling at the foot of the burning mountain, and under the sound of the Trumpet and of the voice which shook the mountain. Moses himself exceedingly feared and shook.

God spoke to audibly to millions of people at once. This is the beginning of the National Israel. Redeemed slaves were liberated and assembled to hear the voice of God at the Holy mountain. This was the marriage, the day when Israel was joined to the LORD, under the Canopy of the cloud of the glory of the LORD.

What did God say to the Holy Nation? He gave them ten Holy Words, which became the primal foundation of the Jewish nation and of the hugely successful Judeo-Christian civilization which sprang out of it.

The Words are spare, beautiful in their simplicity, and completely adequate.

God speaks to them, and us, as individuals. He refers to himself in the first person and to Israel, or to all of us in the second. “I and thou…”.

God commences with the declaration of the liberation He had already wrought for Israel. Freedom from the house of bondage comes first, then the Law.  Grace and salvation are first in the order of God’s salvation, righteousness springs out of that salvation. “I have already set you free, therefore….”.

Men would devise a religion with the opposite premise, saying If you do what we require, then you will be set free. But God sets us free first, then he reveals his will to us.

The Law is in fact called “the law of liberty”(James 1). This is because what God prescribes is in accord with the essential make-up of humanity as He created us. It is as though God was saying, “If you thought Pharaoh was harsh, he is nothing compared to having more than one God,(divided loyalties, a split center…)”. “Do you think making bricks for almost no pay is binding? It is trivial compared to serving sexual lusts to the disintegration of the family”.

Another aspect of this perfect law, is that there are two tables,  the first teaches us what it means to love God. The second table teaches us the meaning of Loving our fellow man. At it’s most basic level, loving God means having allegiance to God alone, and to eschew any personal imagination of what you think God should be like. To Love God is to fear Him, and to revere his name as Holy and not common. It means to submit to the human authority God has delegated to be above us,(Honor thy Father and Mother).

What does it really mean to Love your fellow man? Obviously you should love his life, and you should love marriage in general and your neighbors marriage in particular, you should recognize that property is real, God gives things to people that you shouldn’t steal. Furthermore the way to love your neighbor is to never lie about his character. Furthermore discontentment and envy are antithetical to love.

Love and Hate underly all of these commandments, but openly in the third; “Those who Love “God, fear him, and “Those who hate “God, blaspheme him and their children are affected by both.

None of the commandments are possible to keep without LOVE, for that is our deepest problem since the fall of man, we do not Love God, consequently our Love for neighbors is inadequate as well.

Finally these commandments are mostly stated negatively. This is because God approaches us as those whose life is already against them. One could say, “Thou shalt not commit adultery”, could just as easily be said, “Marriage is to be honored by all…”. “Thou shalt not do murder…” could also be stated, “Love your neighbor as yourself”. If only we could be given a new heart,  a heart that Loves God supremely, and all others equally, then these go from being commandments, to promises.
