    Open the Gates to the People who keep the Faith - true Christian people. Galatians 3:26-29

    Isaiah 26:1-19 On that DayJudah will say: “we have a strong city"

    Open the gates; let a righteous nation enter, a nation that keeps faith. Lord, those who put their trust in You are untroubled. Trust in the Lord forever, for He is an eternal Rock. The path of the righteous is smooth and level. Lord we desire Your Laws and we wait for the dawn when they will prevail on the earth – then all peoples will know true justice. Though You show grace to the wicked, they do not learn righteousness and continue on in their evil ways. Lord, Your hand is lifted high in Your zeal for your people. The wicked do not see it, so let them be humiliated. Let the fire reserved for Your enemies consume them. Those who dwell in high places will be brought down to dust. The oppressed and poor will tread them down. Malachi 4:3

    Lord, You establish peace for us, all we have is Your doing. Our forefathers worshipped other gods, but You alone do we honour. They are now dead, You punished them and wiped out all memory of them. Lord, You have enlarged the Nation. You have gained glory by extending the borders of the Land. In our distress, Lord we sought You out. You rebuked us and we cried out in pain because we have not done as You required of us. But your dead will live again, they will awake and shout for joy! Revelation 20:4

    Isaiah 26:20-21 Go, My people, enter your rooms and close the door behind you. Hide yourselves until the Lord’s wrath has passed by. The Lord is coming from His dwelling place to punish the people of the earth for their sins. The sins of the guilty will be revealed. Reference, Revised English Bible. Some verses abridged.

    On that Day’ – That Day will be the great and terrible Day of the Lord’s vengeance and wrath, a worldwide devastation, but which will particularly affect the Middle East area. The Sixth Seal of Revelation 6:12-17, 2 Peter 3:7, Isaiah 30:25-30, Ezekiel 30:1-5, Isaiah 24:1-13, Jeremiah 49:35-37, Joel 2:1-11, Zephaniah 1:14-18

    ‘Judah will say: We have a strong city’ - The Israeli Defence Force is strong and well prepared for conventional warfare. But what will happen, will take them by surprise and destruction will overtake them. Isaiah 22:1-14, Isaiah 9:18-19, Jeremiah 9:10-11+22+ 25-26

    A righteous nation - The nation Jesus referred to in Matthew 21:43 All the true Christian believers, those who kept strong in their faith during the Lord’s Day of fiery wrath. Revelation 5:9-10

    Let the fire reserved for Your enemies consume them’. – God promised to never again flood the earth, but in Deuteronomy 32:22+34-35+43 I have a fire reserved in My storehouse awaiting the Day of punishment and vengeance, for the Day My enemies make a mistake, that will be the Day of their doom. I will punish all who hate Me and cleanse My peoples Land. Jesus said: the world ‘will be as in the days of Noah’, and now most peoples are, once again, in a similar godless situation. Isaiah 66:15-16, Isaiah 34:1-5, Jeremiah 25:30-31, Ezekiel 20:47-48, Hebrews 10:27, Psalm 11:4-6

    ‘Hide yourselves until the Lord’s wrath has passed by’. – A clear instruction from the Lord. Keep under cover and call out to the Lord for His protection. Joel 2:32, Acts 2:21

    ‘Open the gates, let a righteous people enter’ - The Lord’s people, all the righteous Christian people, be they true descendants of Jacob or grafted in by faith, will enter their heritage soon after all the holy Land is cleared and cleansed by the fire of His judgement/punishment. All true believers in God and Jesus, all those ‘who desire His Laws and look forward to the time they will prevail upon the earth’, will gather and go to live in all of the Promised Land. Ezekiel 20:34-38, Isaiah 62:1-5, Psalms 69:35-36, Jeremiah 31:9-10, Ezekiel 36:8
    This will be the fulfilment of God’s promises to the Patriarchs, Ezekiel 20:42 and His chosen Church will, at last, live as God originally intended His people to be. Ezekiel 39:27, Isaiah 42:6

    ‘Lord, You have enlarged the Nation’. – Isaiah 49:20 says how the large numbers of people who will emigrate to all of the holy Land, will say: Make room for us to live here, this place is too small! Micah 7:11 They are: a vast multitude of Christians from every tribe, race, nation and language. Isaiah 66:18b, Revelation 7:9

    The Lord will ‘establish peace’, Zechariah 8:7-12, Psalms 67:1-2, and the new nation of Beulah, Isaiah 62:1-5, will grow and prosper. Joel 2:18-27, Isaiah 66:12-13, Hosea 14:4-7

    Isaiah 8:5-8 The Lord says: Because this nation [Judah] has rejected the gentle water of Shiloh, [Isaiah 5:24 –the Laws and Covenant of God] then I will bring against them a flood. [foreign armies] They will sweep through Judah and conquer the whole Land. This was fulfilled by the Babylonian captivity. Isaiah 5:13, 2 Kings 17:18-20

    Isaiah 8:9-10 Take note, you nations, you too will be shattered. Listen you distant peoples of the earth, prepare yourselves , devise your plans, but they will not be carried out, for the Lord is with His people. Micah 4:11-12

    Isaiah 8:11-15 The Lord told me not to follow the ways of this people, not to agree to any alliance or treaty that they agree to or to fear what they fear. Isaiah 28:14-15 The Lord is the One that you must regard with fear and awe, He is the One you must hold sacred. But for the House of Israel and the House of Judah, He will be as a stone that causes people to trip and for the people of Jerusalem, He will be as a trap, that makes many fall and suffer. Zechariah 12:3

    Isaiah 8:16 Bind up the message, seal the instruction, so that it cannot be consulted by My disciples. 2 Timothy 4:3-4, Isaiah 29:11

    Isaiah 8:17-18 I shall wait eagerly for the Lord, who is hiding His face from Israel, I shall put my trust in Him. Here we are: all children of our Lordwe are the signs and symbols of Israel, the Lords true, righteous people, You dwell on Mt Zion.

    Isaiah 8:19-22 Others will suggest that you consult mediums and spiritualists, who whisper and mutter, but why ask the dead for instruction, when what they say brings no light? So despondency and fear will come over those people, in their futile search for the truth, they will rebel against their rulers and their gods. Wherever they look, all is gloom and darkness and there will be no escape for them. Hosea 4:12, Jeremiah 29:8-9, Isaiah 66:17

    Isaiah 33:13-16 You dwellers afar off, hear what I have done, acknowledge My might, you that are near at hand. The godless sinners in Zion will quake with terror, with trembling they ask: Can any of us live with a devouring fire, in perpetual flames?
    The people who behave uprightly and speak the truth, who scorn to enrich themselves by extortion or bribery. Those who keep their ears and eyes from evil, it is these people who will dwell in safety, with their food assured and water never failing them. No one living there will say; I am sick and the sins of the people who live in the Land will be pardoned.
    Isaiah 44:22, Psalms 103:1-5, Ezekiel 37:20-27 Reference: REB some verses abridged

    Listen you distant peoples, the plans and preparations of the ungodly peoples, to occupy all of the Holy Land and wipe Israel off the map, will not prevail. Psalms 83:1-18

    you dwellers afar off: Our situation now: Christians scattered all around the world. 1 Peter 1:1

    Here we are: all children of the Lord, we now represent Israel. True Christian believers are now the Israel of God, those from every tribe, race, nation and language are the Lords holy people. Galatians 3:26-29, Romans 9:6-8, Revelation 5:9-10

    it is these people who will dwell in safety and prosperity: Soon after the Lord’s Day of fiery wrath, that will clear and cleanse all the holy Land, the call will go out to all the Lord's people who stood firm in their faith, Zechariah 10:8-12, to gather and live there, Hosea 2:14-23, Jeremiah 31:8-9, as God always intended His Israelite; now the Christian peoples to be, His witnesses and a light to the nations. Isaiah 42:6, Isaiah 43:10

    Bind up the message, seal the instruction, so it cannot be consulted by My disciples. Deuteronomy 29:4, Isaiah 29:11
    It is no wonder that the Christian church cannot sort out or properly understand prophecy. The Lord actually does not want most people to know His plans, however the prophetic Word has been given to us for a reason and for those who genuinely apply themselves, putting aside all preconceived notions and false teaching; only then it is possible to discern the truth about our future. Hosea 12:10, 2 Peter 1:19

    Call upon the Name of the Lord: Joel 2:32, Acts 2:21

    Psalms 57:1-6 Lord, be gracious to us, we who make You our refuge. We trust in Your protection until the disaster has passed. When we call upon the Name of the Lord to save us, He will send from heaven angels to protect us and our enemies will be brought low. They have many weapons and have prepared a trap - dug a pit, but they themselves will fall into it. Psalms 7:12-16, Joel 3:4

    Psalms 56:3-7 In the Day of terror, I will put my trust in You – the Most High, in God whose promise is my boast, in God shall I trust and I shall not be afraid. What can mortals do? Constantly they speak against us and plan destruction for Your people, in malice they band together and watch for any opportunity to harm us. We cannot avoid their harassment, their devious and wicked ways. God; in Your anger, destroy those evil nations. Psalms 9:17, Ezekiel 32:20-30

    Psalms 56:8-13 Lord, You note our grief, our tears are recorded. You will repulse our enemies on the Day that we call to You. Lord, we are Your people, bound to You by our Covenant, you will rescue us from death, in Your power we will walk in the light of life. Psalms 18:28

    In the first Exodus of the Israelites, they were tasked to conquer and destroy the heathen occupiers of the holy Land. They failed to completely clear the Land, Judges 1:19-36, but the Lord used their trials and failures as lessons for them and us, 1 Corinthians 10:11, but because of their sins, the Lord used other nations to conquer and exile them. Now, Judah is back, but in unbelief and they will be judged along with all the attackers of Israel. Amos 1 & 2

    It will not be like that again for the great Exodus of the righteous Christian Israelites, as they gather and settle into their heritage of all the holy Land. Psalms 60:1-5 There will not be any ungodly people left surrounding the new nation of Beulah, Isaiah 62:1-5, because the Lord Himself will ‘bring our enemies low’.

    Many prophecies say how all of that area promised to Abraham, so long ago, will be cleared and cleansed by a ‘Day of terror and disaster’, Jeremiah 10:18, and all those ‘evil neighbours’, Jeremiah 12:14, will be gone. Then, ‘by the Lords wrath, He will bring His people out from the nations’ Ezekiel 20:33-38, Ezekiel 34:11-31 and ‘in the Lord’s power, we will walk in the Light of Life’. Isaiah 9:2-3
    God be exalted above the heavens, let Your glory be over all the earth.

    Jeremiah 12:1-3 Lord, I plead my case before You, even though I know that You are right. Why do the unrighteous prosper? They grow and bear fruit, Your precepts are ever on their lips, yet far from their hearts. You know me, Lord, You see me, test my devotion to You and judge those who are unfaithful, I ask.

    Jeremiah 12:4-6 How long must the ungodly peoples desecrate Your Land? They say; “God does not see what we do”. Your righteous people cannot compete with those who despise them. Even so called friends turn against us: they are untrustworthy.

    Jeremiah 12:7-9 I have abandoned Israel and given My beloved people into the power of their enemies. They broke our covenant, so I turned My face from them.
    Jeremiah 12:10-13 The leaders of Israel have made My pleasant Land a desolation, to My sorrow. Evil peoples have taken over the Land from end to end, there is no peace for anyone. Whatever these people do, their harvest is a disappointment because of the Lord’s anger.

    Jeremiah 12:14-17 These are the Words of the Lord about all those evil neighbours who have encroached onto the land which I allotted to My people, Israel, as their holding: I shall uproot them. Also, I shall uproot Judah from among them, but after I have uprooted them, I shall have pity on them and bring them back to the Land. IF they will learn the ways of My people, THEN Judah can establish families among My people. But any nation that will not listen, I will destroy. Reference; REB. Some verses abridged.

    Lord, bring on Your judgement….. Many people profess to follow You, but true Christianity is far from their hearts. Isaiah 1:18-20, Romans 10:9-10, Isaiah 48:1-2.
    Your true Christian peoples are persecuted and oppressed1 John 3:13-14, 1 Peter 1:6
    Test my devotion to You…. Everyone will face trials and testing. Luke 21:35, 1 Peter 4:12 If we stand firm, the Lord promises protection. Psalm 23:4, Isaiah 41:13, Isaiah 43:2
    The ancient Israelites broke the Covenant and so were exiled out of the holy Land and dispersed. Jeremiah 7:15 Jeremiah 2:7, Ezekiel 36:16-19, Amos 9:9

    The atheistic, apostate and false religion followers…. who mostly inhabit the entire area of the holy Land at present, are an anathema to God. There will be no peace or prosperity like this. This is our situation today. Psalms 74:20, Ezekiel 36:3-7.

    All the evil neighbors will be removed from all of the holy Land. Judah, too will be uprooted. Obadiah 12-16, Amos 2:4-6, Ezekiel 21:4
    The condition for any Jews to come back again, is that they acknowledge the Messiah Jesus and follow the way of Christianity. Isaiah 26:8-9, Jeremiah 13:11, 1 John 2:22-23, Zephaniah 1:12

    Any people group that refuses to listen will be destroyed….. Isaiah 1:27-28, Isaiah 66:15-17, Hebrews 10:26-27, Isaiah 66:24

    The Land of Israel is the heritage of the Lord’s true Christian believers, now the righteous Israel of God. Galatians 6:16 They will gather and settle there, Psalms 107:1-3, after the Lord clears and cleanses the Land, as He says He will in verse 14. Deuteronomy 32:43, Isaiah 35:1-10

    Jeremiah 25:30-38 The Lord roars from on high. He thunders from His holy place. He roars loudly against His holy Land and like a grape treader He shouts against all the inhabitants of the earth. The great noise is heard around the world. For the Lord brings His judgement against the nations, He arraigns all mankind and has handed over the wicked and godless to the sword.
    The Lord says, ‘Disaster spreads from nation to nation, a mighty tempest is unleashed, that will blast to every corner of the world’. Those whom the Lord has killed on that Day will be strewn from one end of the earth to the other, they will not be mourned or buried, but left as dung upon the ground.

    Cry out you bad shepherds and useless leaders of My people, the Day comes for your demise, you will fall like prize rams to the slaughter. There will be no escape from the Lord’s fierce anger, like a lion leaping to the kill.
    Disaster will suddenly strike and their land will become desolate because of the fiery wrath of the Lord. Ref: REB, CJB.

    It is now time to realize that this terrible, worldwide disaster is soon to happen. In no way has this prophecy been fulfilled yet and this cannot be at the Return, as it is before that: ‘He thunders from His holy place’. Psalms 18:13, Psalms 11:4-6, Revelation 6:12-17
    Many other prophesies vividly describe this sudden and shocking, Day of the Lord’s wrath, a one day event: as fire from the heavens, as a coronal mass ejection sunstrike that will literally fulfill all of them. Psalms 83 tells how fire and tempest will destroy those attackers of Israel and details like ‘the sky rolled up like a scroll’, and the ‘moon blood red’, are also literal effects of an earth directed CME. Isaiah 30:26-30, Isaiah 66:14-16, 2 Peter 3:10
    The millions killed on that Day won’t be buried because there won’t be many survivors to do that and the extreme heat of a CME and the fires caused by it, will reduce them to ash. Malachi 4:3, Jeremiah 9:22

    Those who have led the people astray with their false teachings, fictional books and poor leadership will be judged and punished on that Day. Micah 3:1-4, Isaiah 56:10-12
    The world as we know it now, will not continue for much longer, prophecy is given to us as a warning of what will happen and to be mentally and physically prepared, so we can stay strong and keep trusting in the Lord to keep us safe, because we know His plans for His own Christian people. Jeremiah 29:11

    Colossians 1:11-12 In His glorious might may He give you ample strength to meet with fortitude and patience whatever comes and to give joyful thanks to the Father who has made you fit to share in the heritage of God’s people, no longer in darkness, but in His Kingdom of Light.
