Frogs and Megiddo

                         3 Frogs Bring World to Megiddo

One might react to the title, saying, the whole world is far too smart to be led
anywhere by 3 frogs, especially the Western world of the US and Great
Britain, and especially not to Megiddo in Hebrew, called Armageddon in Greek;
because everybody knows that is the place of the last great battle where God
Himself intervenes to bring this old earth to an end, and to punish all
accumulated injustices.  Megiddo, now a Israeli Kibbutz of Megiddo, is located
just north of the West Bank in Israel–one of the Jihadists strongholds in
Palestine along with the famous Gaza over on the coast of the Med.  This
takes care of one of the three frogs, and the logic of what we see in the world
today in the light of prophetic predictions on eschatology is that the other
“unclean spirits that are like frogs” (Revelation 16:13) must be Al-Quaida
knocking on the northern border of Israel in order to get down a short distance
to Megiddo, and ISIS which can not wait to destroy Jerusalem and the “camp
of the saints”  (Revelation 20:9)


5-1:  Megiddo and the 3 Frogs
Why Megiddo and why one of the least harmful of all threats to humanity, 3
frogs?  Preliminarily and before full development from the Bible of Revelation,
Daniel, and II Thessalonians, let it be stated that God is still in control of this
Universe, intervening, and has chosen to allow this method of development in
order to bring the affairs of this old earth to an end, before the second coming
of Christ to intervene and win the battle, and the subsequent creation of a new
earth and new heavens where God lives and righteousness prevails.  A dream,
not really as that is what God has planned all along to wrap up world affairs,
and the reason He had it recorded as prophetic predictions in the Bible of
Zechariah, Daniel, Revelation, and II Thessalonians and other Scriptures
thousands of years ago.  God said in the Old Testament that He would never
do anything without first warning His own people; and furthermore while there
in the public record of the Bible for all the kings of the earth and other to read,
it will be only accepted by faith from His own people until the frogs are hopping
at the gate of Jerusalem and have taken one-half of the people captive
(Zechariah 14:2).
Megiddo, strategically located at the head of a pass through the  Carmel
Ridge  overlooking the  30 mile Jezreel Valley around the Tel of Megiddo,  is
famous as the site of at least 3 famous and large battles of history:  (1) in
1918 A.D> the last battle of World War I, by the way advertised as the war to
end all wars, was where the British defeated the Ottoman Empire; (2) In 609 B.
C.Solomon built a fort on the site and in 609 BC King Josiah of Judah was
killed there when opposing the march of the Egyptian King Necho II towards
Assyria  {Read more: http://www.answers.com/topic/battles-of-
megiddo#ixzz3CSboxGfd}; and (3) In around 1476 bc Egyptian Pharaoh
Thotmes (Thutmosis) III led perhaps 10, 000 men in a rapid march against
rebel Palestinian chieftains. They had sent outposts to hold the Megiddo pass,
a covering force which was easily scattered leaving the king of Kadesh to face
the pharaoh on the Megiddo plain. Thotmes’ army advanced in a concave
formation, its southern wing enveloping the rebels while the northern wing was
driven between them and the town of Megiddo itself. They used surprise,
shock action (chariots) and firepower (archers), cut communications, and
enveloped the enemy. {Read more: http://www.answers.com/topic/battles-of-

5-2:  All the frogs are not in the Middle East.
As for the symbol of frogs to represent unclean spirits, remember that we are
talking about the Middle East tree frog, not those cute little frogs that hop
around in your yard.  According to Wikipedia {http://en.wikipedia.
org/wiki/Frog}, the Middle East tree frog “is found in Armenia, Azerbaijan,
Cyprus, Egypt, Georgia, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia,
Syria, Turkey, and Yemen.  And furthermore all frogs are noted for hoping
distances like ISIS is hopping across borders and countries; some frogs are
extremely toxic and in South America natives glean a poison from them; and it
is significant that encouragers of terrorists like the Boiling Frogs Posts {or
BFP} and in a recent online post:
“We will proceed by documenting the scale and scope of political repression
in each US backed police state. We will then describe the scale and scope of
US military aid buttressing the “remaking of the Middle East” into a chain of
political prisons run by and for the US Empire. The countries and regimes
include Egypt, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Iraq, Yemen, Jordan and Turkey
. . . all of which promote and defend US imperial interests against the pro-
democracy majority, represented by their independent social-political
movements. – See more at: http://www.boilingfrogspost.
com/2014/04/24/obama-remaking-the-middle-east-the-american-
gulag/#sthash.CLsGU6gD.dpuf
While we know that some frog leaders in the US, going back to the follies of
the frog Bushes in creating Iraqi frogs, have out of ignorance of the Middle
East, have created thousands of little frogs that would destroy the US and
Israel, it is going a little far as does the BFP to suggest that the US has
created a chain of political prisons in “Egypt, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain,
Iraq, Yemen, Jordan and Turkey”.  And we hardly read in Sibel Edmonds
articles about the larger Muslim world from which funds for ISIS and other
terrorists are coming!


5-3:  Lest we follow the example of today’s itching ears teachers of
Christian fables on eschatology, and there are many mostly of the secret
rapture type, we must show support for these subjects and images in
Bible, primarily Revelation 16:12-16.
1.  First the 3 unclean spirits like frogs that come out of the mouth of the
Dragon, Satan; out of the mouth of the beast {generally a city-state system
and process as was Rome}; out of the mouth of the Prophet {a religious
system like some have thought was the Pope’s religion of the seared
conscience, but for right now in our period of time, it is in all probability the
Prophet Mohammed and at least Jihadists Muslims}.
“And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs coming out of the mouth of
the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the
false prophet.” (Revelation 16:13)
The dragon is well identified in the Bible as a representation of Satan, really a
vicious monster like ISIS that will kill, destroy, and malign.
“He laid hold on the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan,
and bound him for a thousand years.”  (Revelation 20:2)
2.  Revelations 16:14 proceeds to give us some identifying descriptions of
these unclean spirits like frogs.
“For they are spirits of demons {did you get that BFP, spirits of demons,
of Satan and the fallen angels that were cast out onto the earth with
him}, performing signs, which go out to earth and of the whole world…”
(Revelation 16:14a)
NOTE:   Always in the Bible as false miracles that strive to simulate the
miracles and wonders of God like when He destroyed Sodom and
Gomorrah, some places as in the II Thessalonians description of the
“Lawless One”, the man of sin and of perdition–the very adopted son
and personification of Satan, these signs are called “lying wonders” (II
Thess. 2:9)},  These signs and wonders like suicide bombers with the
spirits of demons go all over the world, some as you recall having come
in 9/11/2001 to New York and the US,
3.  You have always wondered what would bring great and Christian nations,
and moderate Muslim countries to Megiddo for the final great battle; well, yes,
it is the 3 frogs of unclean spirits like ISIS, Al-Quaida, Hamas, Gaza, and the
West Bank and others.  Here is the answer in the second part of Revelation 16:
14, Revelation 16:14b, and the answer is that these 3 unclean spirits like frogs
brought the nations of the whole world to battle at Megiddo.
“…which go out to the kings of the earth and the whole world, to gather
them to that battle of the great day of God Almighty.”  (Revelation 16:
14b)


5-4:  The gathering by Terrorists {the unclean frogs} to Megiddo of the
Middle East is phrased twice, so we won’t miss it, in Revelation 16:14
and 16:15, and with in between the two a note of encouragement and
warning about the simultaneous with the great battle coming of the Lord
Jesus Christ.
1.  The terrorists “gather” the nations to Megiddo in Revelation 16:14.
2.  The terrorists “gathered” all the nations together at a certain place, no
doubt where there enlarged army is camped out to meet the boots on the
ground which they think they can defeat; and no doubt the army of terrorists by
then is so large that it looks doomed for Jerusalem, Judah, and the army of the
nations until God Himself and the Lord Jesus Christ intervene.
3.  Jesus, Who is giving all these revelations to the Apostle John, does not
want us to forget and be confused about the Bible fact that His Second Coming
will be at the same time as His rescue of half Jerusalem and some nations.


5-5:  God Himself  with one foot north on the Mount of Olives and one
foot on the south as it is splits (Zechariah 14:3,4) “will fight against these
nations”  (Zechariah 14:2), and at this second coming, Christ the “King
of Kings and Lord of Lords” “He Himself treads the winepress of the
fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.”  (Revelation 19:15,16)
1.  God the Fathers, “LORD” God, intervention at Megiddo.
“Then the LORD {this is always God the Father} will go forth and fight against
these nations, and He fights in the day of battle.”  (Zechariah 14:3)
2.  At His Second Coming, the simultaneous intervention of the Lord Jesus
Christ.


“Now out His mouth {the Word of God, the King of kings, the Lord of
Lords} goes a sharp sword, that with it He shall strike the nations.  And
He Himself will rule them with a rod or iron.  He Himself treads the
winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.”  (Revelation 19:
15)


5-6:  Above is the good and winning side, but briefly from II
Thessalonians 2:1-12, let us look at the bad and losing side of Satan,
“The Lawless One”, most nations of this earth, and the condemnation of
all who do not believe the truth and had pleasure in unrighteousness”  (1:
12}.
1.  Satan.
2.  “the mystery of lawlessness”
3.  Withdrawal of the Holy Spirt from earth, who previously since His coming in
power and widespread after the Ascension bound the work of Satan and
damped the mystery of lawlessness through the people of God until “the power
of the holy people was completely destroyed”  (Daniel 12:7)
4.  The Lawless One, the mystery of lawlessness, and the Falling Away bring
on this earth the necessity of the END of justice, that God might be “just and
the justifier of all that believe”  (Romans 3:26)  One of those 3 frogs of unclean
spirits comes out of Satan, and that has to be the Lawless One of II
Thessalonians, the little horn of Daniel, and the unclean frog out of the mouth of
Satan himself.  {All of you saw on TV and internet, the work of a demon spirit
without regard for life and the laws of God; and if he is not himself, that is Al
Bagdady, the lawless one, he is a prototype of the worse that humanity can do
to other human beings.


5-7:  God is just and the Justifier of all that believe.  You perhaps
wondered at the simultaneous study of the book of Romans with Israel
and Christian fables, and now you know, and it is introduced from
Revelation 16:5-7.
1.  Revelation 16:5-7.

“And I heard the angel of the waters saying:  ‘You are righteous, O Lord,
the One who is and who was and who is to be, because you have judged
these things.  For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and
you have given them blood to drink.  For it is their just due.’  And I heard
another from the altar saying, ‘Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and
righteous are Your judgments.”  (Revelation 16:5-7)


2.  “The just and justifier” of Romans 3:21-26.

“But now the righteousness of God apart from the law has been
revealed, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, even the
righteousness of God, through faith in Jesus Christ, to all and on all who
believe. {you can feel the rise in intensity from Paul as if the words of his
sermons all over the first century Roman Empire}  For there is no
difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God., being
justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ
Jesus, whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood, through faith,
to demonstrate His righteousness {How about that, a demonstration
from God, and how great it was!}, because in His forbearance God had
passed over the sins previously committed {all those in past history
before Jesus and His death on the cross who exhibited faith}, to
demonstrate at this time His righteousness, that He might be just and
the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.” (Romans 3:21-26}


3.  “The just shall live by faith”  (Romans 1:16,17)

“For I am not ashamed {the Apostle Paul, the Hebrew of the Hebrews,
and a former lawyer of Judaism} of the gospel of Christ, for it is the
power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jews first
and also for the Greeks.  For in it the righteousness of God is revealed
from faith to faith, as it is written, ‘The just shall live by faith’”  (Romans
1:16,17)


4.  Mellow your optimism, those of the Christian fables, on the future of Israel,
only one half of them in Jerusalem will be saved; and only those who turn
around what the Hebrew of Hebrews, the Jew Apostle Paul said about “the
righteousness of God through faith”  (Romans 9:1-5 and Romans 10:1-4)
a.  Paul, the Christian Jew, did not write without tears, like Zechariah,
Jeremiah, and Daniel, of the inevitable partial salvation of the Jews. (Romans 9:
1-5)


“I tell the truth in Christ, I am not lying, my conscience also bearing me
witness in the Holy Spirit, that I have great sorrow and continued grief in
my heart.  For I could wish that I myself were accursed  from Christ for
my brethren, my countrymen according to the flesh, who are Israelites,
to whom pertain the adoption, the glory, the covenants, the giving of the
law, the service of God, and the promises; of whom are the fathers and
from whom, according to the flesh, Christ came, , who is over all, the
eternally blessed God.  Amen.”  (Romans 9:1-5)


   b.  However here is the reality between God the Father and the Jews, a
reality that Paul with his soul captive to the Word of God as was Martin Luther,
could do and say none other about his countrymen according to the flesh.


“Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is that they
may be saved.  For I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God,
but not according to knowledge.  {They were first given the Bible and to
them were committed the oracles of God including the oracle of Jesus,
the Apostles, and the New Testament; and that was knowledge enough,
but knowledge rejected up until near the END.  Of course, we would dare
not recognize that all over the world are presently Jews that are
followers and witnesses to Jesus, for more than you realize unless you
are involved in social media where they make their witness.}  For they
being ignorant of God’s righteousness and going about to establish their
own righteousness {this is true of so many other people in the world,
including Christians, but the Jews took and have the lead}, have not
submitted to the righteousness of God.  For Christ is the end of the law
for righteousness to everyone who believes.”  (Romans 10:1-4)


5-8: What can we do if Israel will not believe their own Hebrew Prophet
Zechariah, and what he plainly tells as a Prophet of God in Zechariah 13
and 14.
NOTE:  Out of time and space in this Bible session, but you can find
exegesis of Zechariah 13 and 14 among other Bible sessions in “Israel
Complete on the New Earth”.  Also if you go to the Bible study series of
Israel as related to distortions of Christian fables today, at least an effort
to straighten out the fables with sound doctrine, you should go to www.
biblecombibleman.com’Israel_LastThings.html .  You will also find in that
series “Jesus and Israel” for proper Bible perspective on both.


5-9.  The little horn of Daniel.
The “little horn” of Daniel is the Lawless One or the man of sin and perdition,
one of the 3 frogs and unclean spirits if you would; and you can find many
references to exegesis of Daniel in the Bible series on “Israel and Last Things”;
and you can download free “Cup of Water”, a condensed version of Mark with
comments; and which as with Mark leads into the sweeps of eschatology of
Daniel.  You can download Cup of Water, Mark and Daniel, in PDF free of
charge with the link of www.biblecombibleman.com/CupWater.pdf .
5-10: Those unclean spirit frogs {how gross each frog looks in the image
of the frog you shall at the beginning of this Bible session, in the history
of humanity, and on TV} and their allies; but them and the whole world
should know their inevitable fate under the hand of God as coming from
God through the Prophet Zechariah.


“And this shall be the plague with which the LORD will strike all the
people who fought against Jerusalem.  Their flesh shall dissolve while
they stand on their feet.  Their eyes shall dissolve in their sockets, and
their tongues shall dissolve in their mouths.”  {Zechariah 14:12)

Israel Complete on New Earth

                                Israel Complete on New Earth 

The land of Israel and the chosen people of Israel will be complete only on
the New Earth!  And in order to complete our proper understanding of this
when and how of a complete Israel, some Bible history of people and land is
required.  For more specifics on how Israel becomes complete, you should
read online www.biblecombibleman.com/AllIsraelSaved.html and
download
the corresponding PDF
which has the footnotes from Adobe FrameMaker. 

2-1:  What God told King Solomon about the future of Israel’s land,
temple, and people.  First the blessing of obedience.

“And it came to pass, when Solomon had finished the building of the
house of the LORD, and the king’s house, and all Solomon’s desire
which he was pleased to do, that the LORD appeared to Solomon the
second time, as he had appeared unto him at Gibeon.  And the LORD
said unto him, I have heard thy prayer and thy supplication, that thou
hast made before me: I have hallowed this house, which thou hast
built, to put my name there for ever; and mine eyes and mine heart
shall be there perpetually.  And if thou wilt walk before me, as David
thy father walked, in integrity of heart, and in uprightness, to do
according to all that I have commanded thee, and wilt keep my
statutes and my judgments:  Then I will establish the throne of thy
kingdom upon Israel for ever, as I promised to David thy father,
saying, There shall not fail thee a man upon the throne of Israel.”  (II
Chronicles 6)
1.  The extent of the kingdom of Israel on earth was greatest under King
Solomon.  The original promise to Abraham as compared to the puny sliver
of land for Israel today.
“On that day the LORD made a covenant with Abram and said, “To your
descendants I give this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the
Euphrates – the land of the Kenites, Kenizzites, Kadmonites, Hittites,
Perizzites, Rephaites, Amorites, Canaanites, Girgashites and Jebusites.”
(Genesis 15:18-21}

2-2:   BUT–the curse of disobedience–God promised something else
through King Solomon with the disobedience of Israel.

But, but, but and however.  The fundamentalists of Christian fables of today,
both the Progenitors of the Pentecostal Problem and the Bible Baptist
fundamentalists of the secret rapture, millennium, and dispensations, think
the Israel of today in under the same original promise of land and people to
Abraham, and then the first half of God’s words to Solomon in I Kings 9:1-5.
These fundamentalists of several persuasions overlook the splitting of the
two kingdoms with the spread of Baal worship, they overlook that half of the
people went into Assyrian captivity and half into Babylonian captivity, they
overlook the words from the angel Gabriel to Daniel on what was going to
happen to his people, they overlook those dark days of Jeremiah where God
told Jeremiah not to pray for these people anymore.  But primarily they
either overlook or distort the words from God in Zechariah.
 

”But if ye shall at all turn from following me, ye or your children, and
will not keep my commandments and my statutes which I have set
before you, but go and serve other gods, and worship them:  Then will
I cut off Israel out of the land which I have given them; and this house,
which I have hallowed for my name, will I cast out of my sight; and
Israel shall be a proverb and a byword among all people:  nd at this
house, which is high, every one that passeth by it shall be astonished,
and shall hiss; and they shall say, Why hath the LORD done thus unto
this land, and to this house?  And they shall answer, Because they
forsook the LORD their God, who brought forth their fathers out of the
land of Egypt, and have taken hold upon other gods, and have
worshipped them, and served them: therefore hath the LORD brought
upon them all this evil.”  (I Kings 9:1-9)
2-3:  Just compare, as in the map above, what was promised to
Abraham and his descendants for land, and the small sliver Israel has
today…  {You have a larger map and located here in PDF download.}
2-4:  Without the distortions of the fundamentalists, you must read
and understand–just let the Bible say what it is trying to say–
Zechariah 14, beginning with “Behold the day of the LORD is
coming…”  (Zechariah 14:1) and ending with “…In that day there shall
no longer be a Canaanite in the house of the LORD of hosts.”
(Zechariah 14:21c)

Even as here in a short time, we can not do complete justice to all the times
in the Bible the One day of the LORD and Lord is mentioned, consistently
from Genesis to Revelation, so also we can not do justice simply to all the
Scriptures on the New Earth, most of which have been disguised and
distorted by the fundamentalists.  In the next section, we will focus on the
New Earth of 14:8-21 with brief inserts of the final Plague on the Jerusalem
attackers, but now we summarize according to the Word of God in
Zechariah 14:1-7 the famous ONE DAY OF THE LORD AND Lord of Old and
New Testament.  {In fact, it is hoped that you will use the complete outline of
this section and the next, to take you through research in the Bible on:  (1)
the One day of the LORD and Lord, and (2) on the New earth.  Keep in mind
that these two major doctrines of the total Bible are among the most
victimized Bible doctrines by Christian fables.
1.  Beginning of that One Day, God gathers all the nations to battle against
Jerusalem (14:1-2).
(1).  Start of the One Longest Day of God and the Lord Jesus Christ (14:
1a)
(2).  “Your” the whole world possessions will be destroyed around you
right where you stand.  (14:1b)
(3)  God gathers all the nations together against Jerusalem (14:2a)
(4).  Jerusalem is taken, the houses rifled, and the women ravished (14:
2b)
‘(5).  Half the city of Jerusalem is taken, but the people of Judah are not
cut off from the city (14:c).
2.  God effectively says enough is a enough, and joins the battle for justice,
extending across the whole new earth.  The Warrior God {LORD of hosts or
Yahweh} goes to war against these nations gathered against Jerusalem. (14:
3-5a)
(1).  The LORD God of this universe goes to war against those gathered
nations (14:3)
(2).  God in that day stands on Mount Olives, splitting it in two parts,
making a large valley as part of the Mount moves north and part south (14:4)
(3).  Israel shall flee through this mountain valley in the way they know,
for it is the way they fled during the earthquake in the days of Uzziah (14:5a)
3. The LORD God and Jesus with the saints come.  (14:5b-7)
(1).“Thus the LORD my God will come, and all the saints with Jesus.” (14:
5b-7).
(2).There will suddenly be no light (14:6).
(3). The One day defined: (a) known only to the LORD, and (b) neither
night or day, but (c) in evening there will be bright light.  (14:7)
4.  New Earth with the New King (14:8.9)
(1).  Living waters shall flow from Jerusalem east and west.  (14:8a)
(2).  Half of the living waters toward the eastern sea and half toward the
western sea (14:8b).
(3).  This water will flow continuously in summer and winter.  (14:8c)
(4).  About the New King:  (a)  The LORD God is King over all the
earth; and (b) “The LORD is one and His name is One.”  (14:9)
2-5:  Far too long, we Bible conservatives not fundamentalists have
remained silent while fundamentalists, with a false literalism for cover up that
adds words and dispensations to the Bible, have cheated God’s people of
God’s blessings of being on the New Earth after the Second Coming of
Christ as recorded in the second half of Zechariah 14, from verse 8 through
verse 21.
Actually 14:8-11 on the New earth, then 12-15 is a flashback to more on the
One day of the LORD,  on the plague with which God will strike all the
people who fight against Jerusalem (14:12); then finally and in conclusion on
Zechariah 14, from 16-21, what is left of the nations will come to Jerusalem
to worship at least once a year.
1.  The New Earth. (14:8-11)
(1).  Living waters flow out of Jerusalem.  (14:8)
(2).  The LORD will be One and King over all the earth (14:9)
(3).  Promised land of Israel turned into plain and Jerusalem raised (14:
10).
(4).  Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited by its inhabitants (14:11).
2.  The Plague on all the nations that come against Jerusalem. (14:12-15)
NOTE:  Read 14:12 carefully, does it not sound like either Israel or the US
drops a nuclear bomb on the vast army attacking Jerusalem.
(1).  Effects on eyes, flesh, and tongues of attackers with dropping of the
nuclear bomb or bombs.  (14:12)
(2).  Enemy neighbor fights against neighbor (14:13).
(3).  As Judah fights at Jerusalem, the wealth of the world flows in to help
with protection (14:14).
NOTE:  The US along sent 2 billion dollars equivalent of silver and gold to
help Judah right now in their present battle against Gaza.
(4).  The plague with be on all in and on all of the CAMPS surrounding
Judah and Jerusalem. (14:15)
3.  Remaining Nations worship the LORD God as King (14:16-21).
(1) Once a year the remaining nations will come up to worship the King,
the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feasts of Tabernacles.  (14:16).
(2).  No rain will come on the families of the earth that do not come to
Jerusalem to worship the King.  (14:17-19)
(3).  That day “HOLINESS TO THE LORD” even on the horses and on
the pots of the LORD’S house, every pot in Jerusalem and Judah, and there
shall no longer be a Canaanite in the house of the LORD of hosts (14:20,21).

Jesus and Israel
                          Perspective on Jesus and Israel 

Sometimes the world scene is depressing, many coming under “the spirit of
bondage to fear” (Romans 8:14-17) as if all the peoples of the world live in
defiance of the Father of the Lord Jesus Christ, and are getting away with
it!  Islam Jidahists all over the world that have no respect or regard for life;
the Balaks of the world of wealth, power and ungodliness like Russia and
China;  New York city where every 20th person is a millionaire; and fear of
children invasion on the US border which makes Christians forget Jesus’
teaching on the good samaritan–the ditch between the road and the border
fence are confused.  This is the picture of Jesus as imaged in the movie
“Heaven is for Real”, and as seen by both Colton Burpo and Akiane
Kramarik, a Lithuania girl who painted a similar image.  {See  http:
//
shroudstory.com/2011/02/23/akianes-jesus-heaven-is-for-real-and-the-man-
in-the-turin-shroud/.} 

1-1:  Rejected by the Jews then and now, but for 2,000 years some of
both Jews and Gentiles have been given power to become sons of
God.
 

1.  John 1:11-13.
“He came unto his own, and his own received him not.  But as many as
received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even
to them  that believe on his name:  Which were born, not of blood, nor
of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.”  (John 1:11-
13)
2.  Romans 8:14-17.  The Apostle Paul, a Hebrew of the Hebrews, a lawyer
extensively trained in the Old Testament and author of 14 New Testament
books, as both a Jew and a Christian must be recognized as a writer of
authority with balanced perspective.
“For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.
For you did not receive the spirit of bondage to fear, but you received
the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, ‘Abba, Father’.  The Spirit
Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if
children, then heirs, heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed
we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.”  (Romans 8:
14-17)
 

1-2: John 1:1-5  The Pre-existent Christ, the Word of Creation. 

NOTE:  We dare not lose perspective on Who Jesus is, the Lord Jesus
Christ!
 

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the
Word was God.  The same was in the beginning with God.  All things
were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was
made.  In him was life; and the life was the light of men.  And the light
shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. (John 1:1-
5)
 

1-3:  John 1:14-18.  What a marvelous true story of the first century and
today, the Bible story of Jesus.
 

“Come and See” and Look, in Jesus you see God the Father” 

“ And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld
his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace
and truth.” (John 1:14)
 

Now John the Baptist was a real Prophet that gave Jesus Preference! 

“John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I
spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was
before me.”  (John 1:15)
 

Even as Jesus was full of the grace and truth of God, we receive the same! 

“And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.”  (John 1:
16)
 

Law came by the Prophet Moses, grace and truth by Jesus Christ! 

“For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus
Christ.”  (John 1:17)
 

Why Not Heed Him who has seen God, the Son of God the Father! 

“No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in
the bosom of the Father, he  hath declared him.”  (John 1:18)
 

1-4:  Perspective today on grace, truth, and Jesus is darkened in all the
confusions of the world, so that the purpose of God through Jesus and
the cross of Jesus, is often forgotten and ignored.
 

1.  Primarily through Jesus and the cross, God is making one very selective
and new creation of humanity for the new earth.
2.  In the few times it has been accepted, as compared to the population of
the world, the middle wall between Jew and Gentile has been broken down
through the crucifixion of Jesus and the creation of one new body of
humanity.
3.  God has programmed and ordained One Certain Day, called in the Bible–
Old and New Testament–the Day of the LORD and Lord–when all the
confusion, fear, injustice, and wrong is to be rectified.
4.  God has chosen, for some reason beyond our understanding except that
all other things promised and predicted in the Bible are right, to usher in that
One “great and notable day of the LORD” at the same time His rescue of
Judah and Jerusalem is required, the time when the whole world of nations
comes against them.
 

1-5:  While the ungodly Balaks, Baals, and Prophet Balaams of the
world today seek and preach peace through substitutions like a two
party state, etc., the “Warrior God” in the words of  McCommerick, has
both a plan to clear the playing field and then populate the New Earth
under the new heavens with one new creation.
 

1.  First of all the world is confused away from grace, truth and Jesus in that
they can not see final and complete justice as with God’s destruction of all
unbelievers, only the beginning of which is when He stands on Mount Olives
and split it into the north and south.  (Zechariah 14)  Part of this confusion of
justice and injustice comes from the inability to see how the great God of
the Universe takes the rejection of His Son, even as He took it when
Judaism of the first century crucified Jesus.
2.  The same Warrior God that destroyed all on the earth except 7 souls in
the great Flood over all the earth in the days of Noah, the same Warrior
God that destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah because one righteous soul
could not be found, the same righteous God who sent the army of Israel to
destroy the Midianites because they caused with their ungodly influence
24,000 of the children of Israel to be destroyed, that same God plans
nothing less than the complete destruction of all on earth at the One Day and
the Second Coming.
3.  The majority at this END, like in any time of history has never been God’
s real concern like most people chose to think today.  True, God did send
His only begotten Son to crucifixion out of love for all the people of the
world, but as a God balanced between love, holiness, and justice, He
demands a leveling of the playing field.
 

1-6:  We have to be careful here on how many Jews and Jews in
particular in Israel are really the Jews of the real believing Israel of
which Paul, himself a Hebrew of the Hebrews, writes about in Romans
9-11.
 

For even in the days of when the King Balak was Ahab and Jezebel and
Baal the dominant religion in Israel, God told Elijah, the real Prophet of God
but who did not know about this group, that God had reserved to Himself
over 7,000 that had not bowed their knee to Baal, the Prophet Zechariah in
chapter 13 talks of the one-third saved but by fire–obviously first and
second century Christianity, then even at the very END which is close to be
now and in Zechariah 14, half of those in Jerusalem when the armies of the
nations come against them are saved!
1.  Can Jews, of Israel or otherwise, be saved today without Jesus because
before Jeremiah they were called out of Egypt to be the people of God?
No, not if you believe the Word of God in the book of Romans, and what
the Apostle Paul regretted to say about his own Hebrew brethren–
“Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is that they
might be saved.  For I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God,
but not according to knowledge.  For they being ignorant of God’s
righteousness and going about to establish their own righteousness,
have not submitted to the righteousness of God.  For Christ is the end
of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.”  (Romans 10:1-
4)
