America & God's Judgment Pt. 6 - Israel's Captivity Took Place in Two Stages
In 721 BC –The Assyrian invasion took place. The northern kingdom of Israel was taken into captivity.
Hezekiah, who was ruling Judah, he was a good king. He observed the ways of God and he listened to Isaiah the prophet of God. Judah was spared, Israel was captured.
Years later a new king came to power. His name was Coniah , son of Jehoiakim, the son of Josiah king of Judah. (1) Because Coniah was evil, and turned his back upon God, worshipped other gods, Judah's conquered.
But it was not conquered by the Assyrians, no; they were conquered by a greater and newer power, the Babylonians.
The ground upon which the nation was dedicated by King Solomon was destroyed, the heart of Israel, Jerusalem and the temple. Babylon, a greater and stronger power took over not only Israel, but Judah as well killing over 100,000 Jews. All of the land was now in captivity because they did not repent. Their evil leaders turned from God and God judged the entire nation.
After many years of rebellion, in spite of God's warning signs, Israel still did not repent and finally the judgment came. The Northern part of Israel would be taken by Assyria. Then Judah, would be taken to Babylon where they would remain for 70 years.
Following In The Same Footsteps as Israel Took 2700 Years Ago
We see that through God's judgment Israel is scattered. Fast forward to our nation turning from God and instead of being "scattered" We have become prisoners in our own country. Our nation is occupied and the occupation is growing stronger and stronger every day. We have bowed to our attackers and become subject to them.
We do not want to admit this, but it is true. Many of our God given freedoms have been lost, and what has been put in place is a form of double standards.
Our occupiers call it Dhimmitude.
Here is how Wikipedia defines Dhimmitude…
Dhimmitude is a neologism first found in French denoting an attitude of concession, surrender and appeasement towards Islamic demands. It is derived by adding the productive suffix -tude to the Arabic language adjective dhimmi, which literally means protected and refers to a non-Muslim subject of a sharia law state. (2)
When Assyria, the inventors of terrorism, was the world power, Israel was captured and her people exiled northward to the area of the Middle East.
The captivities began in approximately 740 BC, when the tribes of Reuben, Gad, and eastern half-tribe of Manasseh were carried away by one of the first successful Assyrian invasions.
This is recorded in both 2 Kings and 1 Chronicles …
2 Kings 15:29 (KJV) In the days of Pekah king of Israel came Tiglathpileser king of Assyria, and took Ijon, and Abelbethmaachah, and Janoah, and Kedesh, and Hazor, and Gilead, and Galilee, all the land of Naphtali, and carried them captive to Assyria.
1 Chronicles 5:26 (KJV) And the God of Israel stirred up the spirit of Pul king of Assyria, and the spirit of Tilgathpilneser king of Assyria, and he carried them away, even the Reubenites, and the Gadites, and the half tribe of Manasseh, and brought them unto Halah, and Habor, and Hara, and to the river Gozan, unto this day.
Daniel Luckenbill, author of " Ancient Records of Assyria and Babylon" states the following…
Assyrian cuneiform mention 27,290 captives were taken from Samaria, the capital of the Northern Kingdom of Israel, by the hand of Sargon II.
Sargon records his first campaign on the walls of the royal palace at Dur-Sarraku (Khorsabad):
In my first year of reign *** the people of Samaria *** to the number of 27,290 ... I carried away. Fifty chariots for my royal equipment I selected. The city I rebuilt. I made it greater than it was before. People of the lands I had conquered I settled therein. My official (Tartan) I placed over them as governor. (3)
So as we see after many years of rebellion, in spite of God's warnings, Israel still did not repent and finally the judgment came.
This judgment was to come as captivity in two stages. First the northern part of Israel would be taken by Assyria. Later, the southern part, called Judah, would be taken to Babylon where they would remain for 70 years.
Like Israel, I believe that 9-11 was our first judgment. We have been occupied by the modern ancestors of the Assyrians, the very same who invented terrorism. Instead of being captive in a foreign land, we are now captive in our own. We (Christians) are slowly being subjected to live under the unwritten rules of Dhimmitude, but those rules are slowly being put down as law, in favor of anything but Christianity. Creeping Sharia is taking place and I see more and more of our land is being taken captive.
Many of you may be doubting that we are in fact occupied.
There is a simple way to prove it.
Go to your town's main square and start protesting something, let's say evolution or the Catholic Church. You hold signs, scream at the top of your lungs, march around, etc.
People are going to look at you as some sort of nut case, many will laugh and mock you, but you will not garner much attention.
Now go to that same place and start holding signs, scream at the top of your lungs, march around protesting Islam and what will happen?
People will be fearful, police will be called, you will probably be shut down in a moment's notice all out of fear of retaliation by those who occupy our land.
Don't think it is true? Then I challenge you to try it yourself.
As I pointed out, God is not a respecter of persons, but He does honor the office of responsibility.
The office of Responsibility is ordained by God. So it does not matter what that "person" believes, it is the office with which that person holds that is important.
I know that it is hard for people to separate the two, but there is a difference. There is the person and then there is the office.
God deals with the office of responsibility. This is why it is so vitally important that when we elect people into positions of responsibility that we put God fearing, God loving men in those offices.
That is why it is so important that our leaders are God fearing men, because it is their "worldview", be it Biblical, Humanistic, Atheistic, Hindu or Muslim, that will dictate their actions when they are holding that office of responsibility.
Over and over again since 9-11 our leaders have stood in defiance to "our enemies" but more than that, in defiance to God.
Not once since 9-11 has our nation's leader called for the nation to repent and turn to God asking Him to heal our land.
Here is what George W Bush said the Tuesday night, after terrorist attacks on New York and Washington…
"Our first priority is to get help to those who have been injured and to take every precaution to protect our citizens at home and around the world from further attacks.
The functions of our government continue without interruption. Federal agencies in Washington which had to be evacuated today are reopening for essential personnel tonight and will be open for business tomorrow.
Our financial institutions remain strong, and the American economy will be open for business as well.
The search is underway for those who are behind these evil acts. I've directed the full resources for our intelligence and law enforcement communities to find those responsible and bring them to justice. We will make no distinction between the terrorists who committed these acts and those who harbor them.
I appreciate so very much the members of Congress who have joined me in strongly condemning these attacks. And on behalf of the American people, I thank the many world leaders who have called to offer their condolences and assistance.
America and our friends and allies join with all those who want peace and security in the world and we stand together to win the war against terrorism.
Tonight I ask for your prayers for all those who grieve, for the children whose worlds have been shattered, for all whose sense of safety and security has been threatened. And I pray they will be comforted by a power greater than any of us spoken through the ages in Psalm 23: "Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me."
This is a day when all Americans from every walk of life unite in our resolve for justice and peace. America has stood down enemies before, and we will do so this time.
None of us will ever forget this day, yet we go forward to defend freedom and all that is good and just in our world. "(4)
Our leader at the time of the attack did not seek God's Forgiveness, nor did he recognize the fact that we were being judged.
Instead of calling us to humble ourselves and call upon Jehovah God, he calls upon "a power greater than any of us."
He continues the defiant claim that many in congress , senate, state and local leaders proclaim.
" We stand together to win the war against terrorism."
" We will make no distinction between the terrorists who committed these acts and those who harbor them"
"all Americans from every walk of life unite in our resolve for justice and peace. America has stood down enemies before, and we will do so this time."(4)
September 13, 2001 was a National Day of Prayer and Remembrance for the Victims Of the Terrorist Attacks. Proclaimed by the President of the United States of America.
The following is the text of that proclamation.
On Tuesday morning, September 11, 2001, terrorists attacked America in a series of despicable acts of war. They hijacked four passenger jets, crashed two of them into the World Trade Center's twin towers and a third into the Headquarters of the U.S. Department of Defense at the Pentagon, causing great loss of life and tremendous damage. The fourth plane crashed in the Pennsylvania countryside, killing all on board but falling well short of its intended target apparently because of the heroic efforts of passengers on board. This carnage, which caused the collapse of both Trade Center towers and the destruction of part of the Pentagon, killed more than 250 airplane passengers and thousands more on the ground.
Civilized people around the world denounce the evildoers who devised and executed these terrible attacks. Justice demands that those who helped or harbored the terrorists be punished -- and punished severely. The enormity of their evil demands it. We will use all the resources of the United States and our cooperating friends and allies to pursue those responsible for this evil, until justice is done. We mourn with those who have suffered great and disastrous loss. All our hearts have been seared by the sudden and sense-less taking of innocent lives.
We pray for healing and for the strength to serve and encourage one another in hope and faith.
Scripture says: "Blessed are those who mourn for they shall be comforted."
I call on every American family and the family of America to observe a National Day of Prayer and Remembrance, honoring the memory of the thousands of victims of these brutal attacks and comforting those who lost loved ones. We will persevere through this national tragedy and personal loss. In time, we will find healing and recovery; and, in the face of all this evil, we remain strong and united, "one Nation under God."
NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim Friday, September 14, 2001, as a National Day of Prayer and Remembrance for the Victims of the Terrorist Attacks on September 11, 2001. I ask that the people of the United States and places of worship mark this National Day of Prayer and Remembrance with noontime memorial services, the ringing of bells at that hour, and evening candlelight remembrance vigils. I encourage employers to permit their workers time off during the lunch hour to attend the noontime services to pray for our land. I invite the people of the world who share our grief to join us in these solemn observances.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this thirteenth day of September, in the year of our Lord two thousand one, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and twenty-sixth.
[signed] GEORGE W. BUSH
Not once does Bush recognize and proclaim that our nation has turned from God. Not once does he call our nation to humble ourselves, seek His face and seek repentance.
What he does proclaim is a continued defiance in the face of the enemies and the face of God.
The answer at that time was a simple answer…
2 Chronicles 7:14 (KJV) If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
But instead we stood proud with words like "We Will."
" We will persevere"
"We will find healing and recovery"
"We remain strong and united"
But here is the statement that send shivers down my spine, a statement that many people did not "hear" and what I believe is a prophecy by our leader proclaimed upon our nation.
"All our hearts have been seared by the sudden and sense-less taking of innocent lives."
Websters 1828 Dictionary defines seared as the following..
SE'ARED, pp. [from sear.] Burnt on the furface; cauterized; hardened;
Our hearts have been hardened, and in fact our hearts continue to be hardened.
Folks, our president, due to the office of responsibility basically proclaimed a curse upon us as a nation. Knowingly or unknowingly the curse was uttered and to this day our hearts are still hardened.
But Bush is not the only president. Our current president, Barrack Husain Obama - one who sympathizes with the growing occupying enemy; has continued that stance in defiance.
Barrack Husain Obama's inaugural address January 20, 2009 reiterated the vow of defiance, to rebuild, to begin anew, and rise from the ashes on our own and without the collective prayers and sanction from God.
Instead of seeking God's face, he kept stating.."WE WILL"
“…Starting today, we must pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and begin again the work of remaking America. … For everywhere we look, there is work to be done.
The state of our economy calls for action, bold and swift. And we will act, not only to create new jobs, but to lay a new foundation for growth.
We will build the roads and bridges, the electric grids and digital lines that feed our commerce and bind us together.
We'll restore science to its rightful place, and wield technology's wonders to raise health care's quality and lower its cost.
We will harness the sun and the winds and the soil to fuel our cars and run our factories. And we will transform our schools and colleges and universities to meet the demands of a new age.
All this we can do. All this we will do…
Like many that night, I remember watching this in our own home. This was history being made and it was “The Moment.”
But I also was troubled as a Christian recognizing the unrelenting pride and determination when President Obama stated…
…We will not apologize for our way of life, nor will we waver in its defense. And for those who seek to advance their aims by inducing terror and slaughtering innocents, we say to you now that our spirit is stronger and cannot be broken -- you cannot outlast us, and we will defeat you…
I was watching as Obama gave this speech. My stomach sank and a moment of dread came over me. Did the American people realize what this man just said?
Like President Bush cursing us with a searing/hardening of our hearts, I believe our current president has "prophesied" our doom.
As with Israel, God uses the enemies to judge the nation.
In the past I have written showing the similarities between America and what took place in Israel found in Isaiah 5.
Our current president has knowingly or unknowingly basically spit in the face of God's judgment. In doing this, I believe that he has cursed us as to how I believe God will react to our defiance.
I believe that He will act against us as he acted against Israel, the only other nation to be dedicated to Jehovah God.
He will lift up an enemy (ensign) from a far and they shall attack with speed swiftly.
Here is how Isaiah describes it…
Isaiah 5:25-30 (KJV) Therefore is the anger of the LORD kindled against his people, and he hath stretched forth his hand against them, and hath smitten them: and the hills did tremble, and their carcases were torn in the midst of the streets. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.
26 And he will lift up an ensign to the nations from far, and will hiss unto them from the end of the earth: and, behold, they shall come with speed swiftly:
27 None shall be weary nor stumble among them; none shall slumber nor sleep; neither shall the girdle of their loins be loosed, nor the latchet of their shoes be broken:
28 Whose arrows are sharp, and all their bows bent, their horses' hoofs shall be counted like flint, and their wheels like a whirlwind:
29 Their roaring shall be like a lion, they shall roar like young lions: yea, they shall roar, and lay hold of the prey, and shall carry it away safe, and none shall deliver it.
30 And in that day they shall roar against them like the roaring of the sea: and if one look unto the land, behold darkness and sorrow, and the light is darkened in the heavens thereof.
Obama has uttered a curse upon our nation, just as President Bush did with "searing our hearts". Both while holding the position and office of responsibility.
Again, this is a position of responsibility that is ordained by Jehovah God that over sees a nation that is dedicated to Jehovah God, Creator of All.
The curse of our seared hearts continues to show itself. We are a nation that refuses to turn from our wicked ways. We refuse to repent, we continue to stand in defiance. It is that defiance that will be our down fall.
But there is still the remnant.
Those who recognize and see clearly that 9-11 was in fact a judgment know that we need to turn our nation from its evil path.
There are those of us who are bible believing Christians which recognize the need to heed and submit to 2 Chronicles 7:14.
If we as a nation refuses, what will follow will be like Babylon swooping down on Israel. God warned His people with Assyria. They heeded His warning but for only a season. Eventually the whole of Israel was judged though her enemies, the mighty Babylonian kingdom.
Jehovah God raised up an ensign from a far and they attacked with speed swiftly, over taking Israel, capturing them and put them in bondage.
I believe that this to will be our fate for not turning back to Him.
As proclaimed, our hearts have been seared.
Could we change? We could, but to be honest I do not see it to be very likely because our hearts are in fact seared / hardened against Him and instead. Only God can change that hardening of a nations heart.
That January 13th 2001 we prayed for healing, but skipped the part about " shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways."
On 9-11 we were attacked by the ancestors of Assyrians, inventors of terrorism, and now they occupy this land; growing like a cancer.
But my fear is not that, my fear is the mighty Babylonian kingdom.
Like Israel, we had our version of "Assyrians" attack us through God's judgment.
I believe that we will have our own version of "Babylon" also attack us, that is if we do not turn from our wicked ways.
"Our Babylon" has been growing again in might. In fact they have re-elected a president who ruled with a mighty hand. Once his term for president ran out, he ran for prime minister. While in both position, ultimate power over the his country never wavered. Just recently his country had elections for president and he ran again and recently won the office once again, continuing his power over his country.
For some time they have hated us. Their plan of our destruction has been taking place over 100 years. Proof of this is staring us right in the face from the oval office.
Now I am going to go out on a limb here and say that if you are one of the remnant, you know in the pit of your stomach who we believe "Our Babylon" is.
This morning Tracye gave a gasp as she was reviewing the morning's news, something that I have not yet done because I am putting today's issue together.
The headline that shocked her was …
During missile defense talk, Obama tells Medvedev he'll have 'more flexibility' after election
President Obama assured Russian President Dmitry Medvedev Monday that he'd have "more flexibility" after the November election, during a conversation that appeared to focus on the touchy issue of missile defense.
Obama, during a sit-down with Medvedev in Seoul, urged Moscow to give him "space" until after November. The conversation was relayed by a TV pool producer who listened to the recording from a Russian journalist.
"This is my last election. After my election, I have more flexibility," Obama told Medvedev.
Obama appeared to be asking Medvedev to relay this point to Vladimir Putin, who recently won election to return to the Russian presidency.
"On all these issues, but particularly missile defense ... this can be solved but it's important for him to give me space," Obama said.
Medvedev told the president he understood the "message about space. Space for you ..."
After Obama noted he'd have more flexibility in the future, Medvedev told him: "I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir." (Putin)
U.S.-backed plans for a missile defense shield in Europe have been a sensitive subject in Russia, and one that Putin exploited during his presidential campaign.
The White House, though, downplayed the conversation between Obama and Medvedev. (6) - emphasis mine
I want to state right here right now that I am not a prophet, nor do I claim any prophetic gift. I am just a watchman on the wall who is looking out across the vast area. I cannot say with any certainty what will happen.
I have been warning about what I call The Coming Storm for some time now. I believe that God will send "minor" storms to continue to try to wake us up. We see that in natural disasters that are supposed to happen once a century, but seem to becoming the norm yearly.
I believe that He is using the sabbatical year as another means to get our attention.
9-11 was a sabbatical year and the 2008 fall of Wall Street, which dove tails along with 9-11 was a sabbatical year.
The next sabbatical year will be 2015.
I also believe that God has set apart a remnant, watchmen who had the foresight to see the enemy coming and hid themselves just like those did in ancient Israel.
Proverbs 22:3 (KJV) A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished.
In fact several chapters later Solomon repeats himself word for word.
Proverbs 27:12 (KJV) A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself; but the simple pass on, and are punished.
The watchmen on the wall have been putting two and two together, trying to warn our nation. See I am not alone in this, in my research I have found others who also are saying the same thing.
I get calls and emails weekly, out of the blue from people feeling the same "urgency" to prepare and be ready, just like Tracye and I.
I believe that once the storm hits we will have a chance to share the gospel, but even more, help establish the spreading of the gospel like we once did many years ago. Very few good, Godly missionaries are going out to all the world. In fact many are coming home because no one wants to support them anymore.
I believe that we have a chance. If a nation can be saved due to the prayers of one Godly man, then we can make a difference here.
Christ told us to "Occupy Till He Returns."
To be ready "in season and out of season"
And to "Always be ready to share the hope that is within us."
I believe like Noah and Joseph, we need to prepare to "survive the coming storm."
The only thing that will save this nation is returning to Jehovah God, and the only way to do that is to share the gospel of Jesus Christ, showing that people are lost and destined to an eternity to Hell.
2 Chronicles 7:14 (KJV) If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
