AFTER THE HOLOCAUST / TRIBULATION
THE SECOND COMING
ISRAEL IS MADE ONE NATION AGAIN
AIR: and so shall we ever be with the Lord."
Mark 13:20 "And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved (alive): but for the elects sake He hath shortened the days.
1 Thessalonians 4:16 "For the Lord Himself shall descend from Heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the
Why are the chosen ones called up into the air/sky? The chosen ones the elite who are going to rule the universes, are called up into the sky because our Lord doesNOT land on earth at this point in time.
and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work SHALL BE (his designated future heavenly work)."
Revelation 22:12 "And behold, I come quickly;
Matthew 5:12 "Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward inHEAVEN: "
Luke 6:23 "Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward is great inHEAVEN: "
Our Lord brings the fulfillment of His rewards with Him and wants more than anything else at this point in time to give each and every one of His future rulers their rewards and (to use an earthly expression) "to see their faces" when they receive their huge chunks of heavenly real estate and their unimaginable mansions. So, with His new Bride He now returns to Heaven and shows and gives them the rewards that He has been preparing for 2000 years.
John 14:2 "In my Fathers house (abode) are many mansions: if it were not so I would have told you.
3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also."
The travels of our Lord and His New Bride and their return to earth are expanded a little later but there are still several more prophecies to be fulfilled before they return back to earth and He stands once again upon Mt Olivet.
AFTER THE HOLOCAUST (THE WRATH OF GOD)
The whole planet is a smoking ruin (war, plagues, huge meteorites, volcanoes and earthquakes) two thirds of the population are dead and most of the mountain ranges have been leveled.
Luke 3:5 "Every valley and ravine shall be filled up, and every mountain and hill shall be leveled down, and the crooked places shall be made straight, and the rough roads shall be made smooth (Amplified).
These words from the New Testament must not be spiritualized away they are not symbols but mean exactly what they say.
At the present time only a small percentage of the worlds land mass is agriculturally viable but as huge segments of it are raised up and leveled down, and ocean depths with all their nutriments are brought to the surface, and as the planet wobbles on its axis; part of the worlds gigantic fresh water supply (Antarctica) becomes available to water these great new plains by precipitation (for it is not some new thing it has happened before); Antarctica is an almost inexhaustible supply of mineral wealth including vast deposits of coal and oil which of course could only have built up when that part of the planet was tropical. So! We are not looking here at happenings beyond the realm of credulity because they are already scientific fact. So, there must be at least one enormous meteorite which hits our planet slantwise producing a STAGGER and for the scientific minded the moon still has a WOBBLE from a hit several hundred years ago.
The planet itself will take time to recover from the tribulation and settle down to once again becoming favorably habitable to mankind (only this time much more so).
It will take some time for the remaining population (which will still be quite large somewhere around three billion) to take stock of themselves and their world, and come to some form of alliance against the antagonist which they believe brought this holocaust upon them, and as prophesied, they believe this antagonist to be the one who appeared in the sky with such "Starwars" like effect and whose remaining earthly followers are the Jews (even though the Jews did not believe Jesus was the Christ until he appeared with such majesty and power). Now this is where the Antichrist, the mark of the Beast and the False Prophet come into the picture.
Near the end of the holocaust a great leader who is referred to as GOG takes over. GOG who is the incarnation of Satan the Devil Himself the very spirit of Antichrist embodied in the flesh for the word Antichrist is only recorded four times in the Bible and each time means a BELIEF and not a person. The name GOG is a symbolic name given to a leader of the world powers (both in the Old and New testaments) that are antagonistic to God, and in the time period here Dictator GOG sets out to completely annihilate the Jews and any form of Christianity left on earth.
There are many scriptures which refer to this particular time period of political and physical (earth and nature) recovery after the holocaust/tribulation; but we will look mainly at those scriptures in the Old Testament the Tanakh, which may seem archaic and dated to many people, but which are in reality lucidly prophetic for these days.
Whilst GOG (who is most likely alive and in a position of authority right now) is consolidating his position and building up a huge army to crush the whole world to his dictatorial demands (scriptures for this shortly) and believing the threat from outer space has gone another STARTLING MAJOR EVENT takes place.
THE NEXT GREAT MAJOR EVENT
ISRAEL IS MADE ONE NATION AGAIN
Presently, only the JEWS (offspring of Judah and Benjamin, with the Levites who were the Priests) make up present day Israel, and the rest of Jacobs (Israels) seed has yet to appear on the scene for Israel to be united.
It is prophesied that the whole twelve tribed House of Israel (Jacob) will be united together again before Christ assumes His Kingship of the whole earth (scriptures to follow).
Nine of the tribes of Israel seceded from Judah and Benjamin and threw out the Levites (the Priests) in approximately 975 B.C.; then built their own capital city in Samaria. For the next 250 years 19 Kings and seven dynasties, Judah and Israel were vicious enemies, being continually at war with each other, and many millions died on each side.
They were never ever reunited before the ten tribes of Israel (now including two tribes from Joseph Ephraim and Manasseh) were conquered by the Assyrians in about 720 B.C. and totally transported as captives back to Assyria on the southern shores of the Caspian sea; from where, within a hundred or so years they migrated northwest and became known as "the lost ten tribes". These lost ten tribes went on to eventually populate Europe, Britain and America, but that does not concern us here, as the prophecies we now look at only apply to those Israelites that were alive up to the birth of Christ, and quite possibly only until their captivity by the Assyrians; because within a few generations they had lost not only their original faith, but had also completely lost their original language.
To make Israel one nation again
Hosea 3:5 "Afterward shall the children of IsraelRETURN and seek the Lord their God, and David their King; and shall fear (stand in awe of) the Lord and His goodness in the LATTER DAYS."
Be restored, bring back again, cause to return, deliver again, make to return and others.
The LATTER DAYS is אַחֲרִית acharith
Last days, end, end time, uttermost; when this word is used in this context it invariably means the days we are now living in.
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 be fruitful: 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 .
22 Therefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord God; I do not this for your sakes, O house of Israel, but for mine holy names sake, which ye have profaned among the heathen, whither ye went .
26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh .
35 And they shall say, this land that was desolate is become like the garden of Eden, and the waste and desolate and ruined cities are become fenced, and are inhabited .
38 As the holy flock, as the flock of Jerusalem in her solemn feasts; so shall the waste cities be filled with flocks of men: and they shall know that I am the Lord."
Meaning to CAUSE to be increased, be many more in number, make many, make to multiply.
HOW ISRAEL is made one nation
The following scriptures are not symbols they must not be symbolized or spiritualized away they are actual prophecies which will happen exactly as written, and are quoted from the Douay-Rheims Catholic Bible hence some different spelling.
Ezechiel 37:1 "The hand of the Lord was upon me, and brought me forth in the spirit of the Lord; and sat me down in the midst of a plain that was full of bones.
2 And He led me through them on every side: now there were very many upon the face of the plain and they were exceeding dry [very very old] .
4 And He said to me; Prophesy concerning these bones; and say to them: Ye dry bones, hear the word of the Lord.
5 Thus saith the Lord God to these bones: Behold, I will send spirit into you, and you shall live.
6 And I will lay sinews upon you, and will cause flesh to grow over you, and will cover you with skin: and I will give you spirit and you shall live, and you shall know that I am the Lord .
10 And I prophesied as He had commanded me: and the spirit came into them, and they lived: and they stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.
11 And He said to me: son of man: all these bones are the house of Israel: they say: Our bones are dried up, and our hope is lost, and we are cut off.
12 Therefor prophesy, and say to them: Thus saith the Lord God: Behold I will open your graves, and bring you out of your sepulchers, O my people: and will bring you into the land of Israel .
16 And thou son of man, take thee a stick: and write upon it: of Juda, and of the children of Israel his associates: and take another stick and write upon it: for Joseph the stick of Ephraim, and for all the house of Israel, and his associates.
17 And join them one to the other into one stick, and they shall become one in thy hand .
22 And I will make them one nation in the land on the mountains of Israel, and one King shall be King over them all: and they shall no more be two nations, neither shall they be divided any more into two Kingdoms .
24 And my servant David shall be King over them .
28 And the nations shall know that I am the Lord the sanctifier of Israel, when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for ever."
The foregoing verses describe in detail the momentous event the raising of the dead whole house of Israel back to PHYSICAL MORTAL life to enjoy the blessings of the thousand years of peace and plenty promised to them by the Prophets.
SCRIPTURE FROM THE NEW TESTAMENT
Hebrews 8:7 "For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second.
8 For finding fault with them, He saith, Behold the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah:
10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel AFTER THOSE DAYS saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:
12 For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and iniquities will I remember no more."
Revelation 20:5 will be examined and explained in appendix B.
Here are more scriptures.
Ezekiel 39:25 "Therefore thus says the Lord God: Now I will restore the fortunes to Jacob, and have mercy upon the whole house of Israel .
27 when I have brought them back from the peoples and gathered them from their enemies lands. (R.S.V.).
Hosea 3:4 For the children of Israel shall abide many days without a King, and without a prince,
5 Afterward shall the children of Israel return, and seek the Lord their God, and David their King; and shall fear the Lord and His goodness in the LATTER DAYS."
Hosea 13:14 "I will ransom them from the power of the grave; I will redeem them from death: "
So! Not long after the holocaust the whole house of Israel (probably several billion) is raised from the dead and given perfect mortal bodies.
Isaiah 35:5 "Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.
6 Then shall the lame man leap as an hart (deer), and the tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert .
10 And the ransomed of the Lord shall return, and come to Zion with everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow shall flee away."
