ALL CREATURES

Do go to

HEAVEN

A book by B. J. Coombs

 

CHAPTER 10

WHAT ABOUT GOG?

Meanwhile Gog (the Devil incarnate) is furiously gathering together His great army to fight against this new threat of millions upon millions more enemies that seem to have appeared from nowhere, and are inflexibly taking over HIS land and building their cities on HIS sites and everything seems to be going their way. But they have no army – only millions upon millions of people that are only interested in building and farming and some weird form of fanatical religion that worships a designated King as HE Gog determines to be worshipped by His subjects – even though He will have to command their loyalty by force.

Whilst Gog is preparing to wipe all these new enemies (who seem to be in alliance with the Jews) off the face of the earth, the chosen ones are still in Heaven receiving their rewards.

Here are some scriptures telling what becomes of Gog and all of His subjects here on earth during this time.

Revelation 9:16 "The number of the mounted troops was two hundred million: I heard their number." (N.I.V.).

There has never ever been an army of this magnitude arrayed against an antagonist in the history of the world – until this time.

Ezekiel 39:1 "Therefor, thou son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold I am against thee, O Gog,…

2 And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee, and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, and will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel:…" (K.J.V.).

Footnote from the Amplified version about verse two. "That one-sixth of the horde from the north will be left alive, is without noted exception conceded to be a MISTAKEN TRANSLATION by all authorities of modern times." (footnote Amplified).

We will continue our study starting again from verse 1 in the New King James Version. (which also has some unusual punctuation).

1 "And you, son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say, ‘Thus says the Lord God: "Behold, I am against you, O Gog, prince of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal;

2 "and I will turn you around and lead you on, bringing you up from the far north, and bring you against the mountains of Israel.

3 "Then I will knock the bow out of your left hand, and cause the arrows to fall out of your right hand.

4 You shall fall upon the mountains of Israel, you and all your troops and the peoples who are with you; I will give you to birds of prey of every sort and to the beasts of the field to be devoured.

5 You shall fall on the open field; for I have spoken," says the Lord God.

6 "And I will send fire on Magog and on those who live in security in the coastlands. Then they shall know that I am the Lord.

Ezekiel 38:22 "And with pestilence and with bloodshed will I enter into judgment with [Gog] and I will rain upon him and upon his hordes…, great hailstones, fire and brimstone [psalm 11:6] (meteorites the same as Sodom and Gomorrah) and they that dwell in the cities of Israel shall go forth, and shall set on fire and burn the weapons,… and they shall burn them with fire for seven years:…

11 …and there shall they bury Gog and all his multitude: and they shall call it the valley of Hamongog.

12 And seven months shall the house of Israel be burying of them, that they may cleanse the land.

13 Yea, all the people of the land shall bury them."

Zechariah 14:12 "And this shall be the plague wherewith the Lord will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem: Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth….

16 And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall go up from year to year to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles.

17 And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain.

18 And if they come not up that have no rain; there shall be the plague,…"

There could be no stronger words than the foregoing scriptures, but many people may say "how can a God of love unleash such terrible vengeance upon His creation?" But it is no longer His creation, it is one spawned by the Devil. God is not pouring out this terrible vengeance on the people – but upon their sin, their faithlessness, their unbelief, and their idolatry (love of money and possessions above Him).

JESUS’ THE CHRIST’S

TRIUMPHANT RETURN TO EARTH

Revelation 17:12 "And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast (Gog)….

14 These shall make war with the Lamb (Christ), and the Lamb shall over come them.

Revelation 19:11 "And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and He that sat upon him was called Feithful and True, and in righteousness He doth judge and make war.

12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns; and He had a name written, that no man knew, but He himself.

13 And He was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and His name is called The Word of God.

14 And the armies which were in heaven [the called up risen chosen ones who have now received their heavenly rewards and each one knows their position of authority, power and dominion – and hosts of angels] were clothed in fine linen, white and clean, and they followed Him upon white horses….

19 And I saw the beast (Gog), and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to war against Him that sat on the horse and His army.

20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet:… and the remnant were slain:… and all the fowls were filled with their flesh."

This battle which will be the greatest to ever take place here on this planet will be voided by God Himself.

Ezekiel 38:19 "…Surely in that day there shall be great shaking (or cosmic cataclysm) in the land of Israel;…

20 And the mountains shall be thrown down and the steep places shall fall, and every wall [natural or artifical] shall fall to the ground." (Amp.).

RECALLING THIS TIME-SLOT

Our planet has undergone a major reshape, which has multiplied the land mass many times and made (or is making) most of it extremely fertile, which means the available cultivatable area is increased many times over, all of which will be necessary for the tremendous increase in population which will occur over the next thousand years; because, there will be no sickness or dying of old age (more about this later).

Multitudes of the original Israel have been resurrected/recreated to immortal life (this is studied in chapter 9) with perfect bodies; and with them all their flocks and herds of sheep,

Goats, camels, donkeys, fowls and any other animals or creatures that at this time they feel necessary for their well-being – like milk, eggs, transport and oxen for pulling plows etc., for within a very short while there will be abundant grass and vegetation to graze the animals, but it will take time to grow crops, fig and olive trees etc.. This time there will be no need of manna because they have been brought out of the wilderness.

Ezekiel 36:10 "And I will multiply men upon you, all the house of Israel, EVEN ALL OF IT: and the cities shall be inhabited, and the wastes shall be builded:

11 And I will multiply upon you man and BEAST: and they shall increase and bring forth fruit (progeny): and I will settle you after your old estates, and will do better unto you than at your beginnings: and ye shall know that I am the Lord."

We have already studied the word multiply RABAH, which refers not only to Israel as a people, but in verse 11 – also to their flocks and herds; because, although crops and trees will grow much faster and more prolifically because there will be no weeds or parasites destroying them, in the pristine conditions, animals and other creatures will still take the same time to increase: You cannot imagine millions upon millions of newly raised Israelites without their flocks and herds which are their wealth and livelihood.

OUR LORD RETURNS TO EARTH

Gog and His armies have attacked the multi-millions of new Israel, our Lord has appeared from heaven with His great invincible army and destroyed Gog and his followers. Our Lord now moves on to His final triumphant return to this earth with all of His elite chosen ones; and He places His feet once more upon the mount called Olivet.

Zechariah 14:4 "And His feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst therof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley:… And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem: half of them toward the former sea (dead sea), and half of them toward the hinder sea (Mediterranean): in summer and in winter shall it be.

9 And the Lord shall be King over all the earth:"…

THE RENEWED EARTH

The period of time that starts with the return to earth of our Lord and His elite rulers is called the ‘thousand years’ (or millennium). It was the dream of Hitler that his ‘Third Reich’ (which ended so ignominiously in 1945) would be this prophesied ‘thousand years’ and that he would be the ruler – but! He miscalculated.

Revelation 20:6 "Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years [over the earth]."

Revelation 15:15 "…and He shall rule them (the heathen nations that are left alive) with a rod of iron…"

Now, when Jesus takes over His Kingship of the whole world with His servant David as the King over all the raised immortal Israelites:

Ezekiel 37:24 "And David my servant shall be King over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them."

The whole house of Israel realizes that their supreme Messiah is the one they rejected and crucified.

Zechariah 12:10 "And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants pf Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced (nailed to a cross): and they shall mourn for Him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for Him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.

12 and the land shall mourn, every family apart; the family of David apart, and their wives apart, the family of NATHAN (who was not a Jew but an Israelite – so at this period of time the two nations have been united [see Ezekiel 37:22]) apart, and their wives apart."…

Zechariah 13:6 "And one shall say unto Him, What are these wounds in thine hands? Then shall He answer, those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends."

Conditions in the New World

Ecological

Amos 9:13 "Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him that soweth seed; and the mountains shall drop sweet wine,"…

Joel 2:24 "And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the fats (vats) shall overflow with wine and oil.

25 And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpillar, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.

26 And ye shall eat in plenty and be satisfied,"…

Isaiah 65:25 "The wolf and the lamb shall feed together and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock:"…

Isaiah 11:8 "And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp (an extremely venomous snake), and the weaned child shall put his hand on the adder’s den.

9 "They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea."

There will be no need of poisonous sprays, for there will be no destroying pests. Trees will be planted and not discriminately cut down. The earth will regenerate itself as originally intended – for the law of God says that every seven years it shall rest completely (if you own seven large stretches of land, you will rest one each year and not plant anything, but allow the animals to graze and fertilize). This way the ground will keep healthy and fertile and produce prolifically during each subsequent six years.

Animals will no longer be carnivores, their teeth and stomachs will change as necessary so they may eat grass and grain like the bullocks, fish and birds will eat vegetation and poisonous creatures will become harmless. It will be like the original garden of Eden; trees will not rot and every member of the flora and fauna will be in complete empathy with every other member; the whole ecological system will be completely self sustaining. There will be no harmful gasses or anything else that can in any way adversely effect the environment; people will go right back to the nature that is todays’ "Greenie’s" dream, animals and other creatures will be treated with love and kindness, so they will reciprocate in kind.

Family and possessions

Firstly, let me reiterate that this period is before the "Great White Throne Judgment"; for after there will be no physical reproduction here on this earth – because this earth will be gone – burned up as studied in an earlier chapter. But there will be physical reproduction in the renewed physical universe this will be studied in appendix J.

Matthew 22:29 "Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.

30 For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels…."

This verse is also studied in appendix J. in case some take it as a contradiction.

Children will be taught by their parents according to God’s original plan – BUT! In case they are taught and believe wrongly:

Isaiah 65:20 "…for the CHILD shall die an hundred years old;"…

For although there will be no deterioration of the human body, there is still the plague if the family does not obey the law and pay their tithes in Jerusalem each year.

Zechariah 14:18 "And if the family of Egypt go not up,… there shall be the plague, wherewith the Lord will smite the heathen that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles."

There will be more than enough fertile land for every mature person to have their own large estates and produce everything they need.

Micah 4:4 "But they shall sit every man under his (own) vine and under his (own) fig tree; and none shall make them afraid: for the mouth of the Lord of hosts hath spoken it."

Everyone will own their own property with no debts.

Law and politics

The government of the new world will be a righteous autocracy where every law is for the good of the people – for their good health (both mind and body) and prosperity. There will be nothing democratic about it, for the laws have been made by our Creator. If the people obey, they will live very happy, healthy and prosperous lives. If they do not obey, then retribution will be swift and painful. If a person does the wrong thing, there will be no place to hide – no courts with lawyers and juries to bamboozle; for the Governor of the region will be a spiritual chosen one who cannot be deceived, because he can look right into the mortal’s thoughts.

It will be complete Utopia for all those who accept Jesus as their King.

What about the different races

Colors and creeds?

 

Why did Christ let the Devil free

At the end of the thousand years?
