I think most people understand that radical Islam is pretty p.o.’d at America. Over 30 years ago I tried to explain to my father, a WWII veteran, why the rest of the world called us “The Great Satan” but he could not understand it. But, here is the truth of the situation; America has always manufactured the next threat to “freedom” in America and for that matter the rest of the world.
When I arrived in Southeast Asia I was shocked to find out that millions of NVA and Viet Cong were not actively trying to invade America like Walter Cronkite had lead me to believe. I was told what a threat they were to our freedoms. It took a number of months but I finally figured out that no one in Vietnam was trying to invade America but trying to get us out of Vietnam, and their domestic affairs, and leave them the hell alone. Many years later I was in the home of the parents of a friend of mine and I was asked about America’s role in Vietnam and I said that it was a waste of time and lives. No one threw anything at me but I left shortly thereafter and was never asked to return. No one wants to think that their child died or could have died for no reason whatsoever, but it is true. Perhaps one day LBJ will suffer the fate as Oliver Cromwell who was dug up from the grave, promptly hung and then had his head severed from his body. Obviously, the folks in Great Britain were more than just a little P.O.’d at being rescued from their monarchy based system of government by their Great Protector, Cromwell.
Anyway, back to ISIS or ISIL or IS or BS:
Once again our government, in all of its wisdom, has created another boogeyman and this time he is called ISIS, unless you are the president and then it is called ISIL ((this term negates the existence of Israel and is the only reason that the Muslim-in-Chief uses this term)) or Islamic State or just plain BS in my view since it is a product of our own government. Blame it on Killery, Obama, Bush or whomever, our government created this beast and even now no one has the desire to take the teeth from the monster’s mouth. And, therein lies the problem. Our government is so corrupt, but politically correct, it won’t admit to the problem much less take any action against it. To do so would implicate the government from the very beginning. So, the monster grows larger and more self-sustaining and eventually won’t need us, the US government that is, because it will have its own network to support itself.
And now for the ugly part: Prophecy!
Most of the modern world, US included, hates the word prophecy because it makes it sound as though they are not the masters of their own destinies. Nothing is farther from the truth. You are the master of your own destiny, prophecy just tells you, in advance, you may not like the consequences of the destiny you chose. It is like your mother telling you that if you don’t clean your room you cannot have dinner. In all your sophomoric wisdom you ask her what is for dinner? She responds “Rutabagas and spinach.” You think to yourself that to miss dinner would be a true act of kindness so, you sneak out of the house without cleaning up your room. No problem, right? Right! Until Dad gets home and you have to clean up your room anyway, get grounded for a week and have to eat the rutabagas and spinach anyway. ((Yes, I know, nowadays kids call CPS or CSI or NCIS or something else out there instead of getting their butts whipped but that is a whole ‘nother article.))
Anyway, you did not have to be a psychic or Nostradamus to see the punishment coming, it just stinks when it finally arrives. This is what prophecy is all about; knowing what is going to arrive and about when it will happen. Sounds simple, right? Well, it isn’t for many reasons. What are they? Glad you asked:
- YHWH’s timetable is based upon His calendar (YHWH is His name, God is His title);
- People think it is too difficult or time consuming to learn YHWH’s calendar, or;
- People don’t care that YHWH has a calendar and will just use Pope Gregory XIII’s or even the Hillel II’s, thank you very much;
- Said calendar goes back to the beginning of THIS Earth age;
- YHWH is a Hebrew God, used Hebrew transcriptionists and idioms;
- Using Greek hermeneutics to understand Hebrew Scripture is like studying Latin in order to understand Chinese. It won’t happen.
I am not going to regurgitate YHWH’s calendar. You can find my articles about that subject here: https://codgerville.wordpress.com/2014/08/05/why-i-was-wrong-about-americas-destiny-part-one-the-curse/
Also, I have other articles that explain why last year was not a sabbatical or Shemitah year, made famous by Pastor Jonathon Cahn, (I know a New York best selling author cannot be wrong, right?) blood moons, Daniel’s timeline and other fallacies of modern Christian theology. Now, herein lies part of the problem. We have theology confused with divinity. Theology is the study of YHWH’s relationship to His Creation. Divinity is man’s attempt at a relationship with his god, whichever god that may be. Modern theology is not the study of YHWH’s relationship with His Creation but rather man’s thoughts on YHWH’s relationship to man and also His Creation. Man is the Creation of YHWH, not of man. Even Darwinism finds its place in the modern church. Or worse yet, “Cogito ergo sum” was uttered by Rene Descartes in 1644 and, think about the wordplay in its translation, “I think therefore I am.” What are the implications of this statement? Just this; I think, therefore I AM (“MY OWN GOD”). (Exodus 3:13-14)
I know, I know. What does all of this have to do with ISIS?
Alright, let’s get back to prophecy. Please don’t be surprised if they are not mentioned by their current name. It was a long time ago, okay? First prophecy:
Jer 16:16 “See, I am sending for many fishermen,” declares יהוה, “and they shall fish them. And after that I shall send for many hunters, and they shall hunt them from every mountain and every hill, and out of the holes of the rocks.
In this prophecy there are 3 things you have to first understand:
- Who are “they”;
- Who are the fishermen;
- and, who are the hunters.
That’s it. So let’s look at these three groups of people. First, who are “They”? They are the Children of Israel. What does that have to do with me, you ask? Let’s find out;
- Rom. 4:16 Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all,
- Gal. 3:7 Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham.
- Gal. 3:9 So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham.
- Gal. 3:14 That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
- Gal. 3:29 And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.
- Heb. 2:16 For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham.
If we are of Abraham we are Israel. Please don’t freak out but rather, read Romans Chapter 11 and let Paul explain it to you in his own way. We are grafted in. It is that simple. Okay, this answers Part One, who are they. Next is Part two, who are the fisherman? Let’s look and it is really simple. ((Oh yeah, you are going to have to be able to add simple numbers, but don’t be afraid, I’ll help you through it.))
Joh 21:4 But when the morning was now come, Jesus stood on the shore: but the disciples knew not that it was Jesus.
Joh 21:5 Then Jesus saith unto them, Children, have ye any meat? They answered him, No.
Joh 21:6 And he said unto them, Cast the net on the right side of the ship, and ye shall find. They cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes.
Joh 21:7 Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved saith unto Peter, It is the Lord. Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he girt his fisher’s coat unto him, (for he was naked,) and did cast himself into the sea.
Joh 21:8 And the other disciples came in a little ship; (for they were not far from land, but as it were two hundred cubits,) dragging the net with fishes.
Joh 21:9 As soon then as they were come to land, they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid thereon, and bread.
Joh 21:10 Jesus saith unto them, Bring of the fish which ye have now caught.
Joh 21:11 Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to land full of great fishes, an hundred and fifty and three: and for all there were so many, yet was not the net broken.
Why 153 fish? What could possibly be the significance and why is the number so important that it is included in the Scriptures themselves? Let’s look for the answer and how it relates to Jer. 16:16. This is called GEMATRIA. Now, let’s see who the 153 fish are: ((Of course I do not have Hebrew characters on my computer but here goes))
- Nimrod (Gen. 10:9);
- Esau (Gen. 27:1-4);
- Ishmael (Gen. 21:20).
So who is Nimrod? Oh, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Beluchistan. And, who is Esau? Southern Syria, eastern and southern Jordan. So, who is Ishmael? Really? Ishmael is Islam. Didn’t you know that? Please read Wikipedia: “The Book of Genesis and Islamic traditions consider Ishmael to be the ancestor of the Ishmaelites and patriarch of Qaydār. According to Muslim tradition, Ishmael the Patriarch and his mother Hagar are said to be buried next to the Kaaba in Mecca.” The most holy site in Islam, which is in Saudi Arabia.
Now, who wants to be hunted? Hmm? No? Okay, now let’s see there was one more prophecy I wanted to tell you about, oh yeah, it too is in the “Old” Testament. Where was that? Okay, here it is:
- Gen 27:38 And Esau said unto his father, Hast thou but one blessing, my father? bless me, even me also, O my father. And Esau lifted up his voice, and wept.
Gen 27:39 And Isaac his father answered and said unto him, Behold, thy dwelling shall be the fatness of the earth, and of the dew of heaven from above;
Gen 27:40 And by thy sword shalt thou live, and shalt serve thy brother; and it shall come to pass when thou shalt have the dominion, that thou shalt break his yoke from off thy neck.
Guess what? Esau is now breaking the yoke of Jacob (Israel). Esau wants his inheritance and you and all those who believe in YHWH and His Messiah, Yeshua (Jesus) are standing in the way. Now here comes the really bad part. You ready?
- Dan 7:19 Then I would know the truth of the fourth beast, which was diverse from all the others, exceeding dreadful, whose teeth were of iron, and his nails of brass; which devoured, brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with his feet;
Dan 7:20 And of the ten horns that were in his head, and of the other which came up, and before whom three fell; even of that horn that had eyes, and a mouth that spake very great things, whose look was more stout than his fellows.
Dan 7:21 I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them;
- Dan 8:23 And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.
Dan 8:24 And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practice, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.
- Dan 11:32 And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.
Dan 11:33 And they that understand among the people shall instruct many: yet they shall fall by the sword, and by flame, by captivity, and by spoil, many days.
- Rev 6:9 And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:
Rev 6:10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?
Rev 6:11 And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellow servants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.
There are many other scriptures that I could go to but already this article is cumbersome. In bullet point number 1 above I highlighted the words iron and brass. In Hebrew thought iron represents slavery and brass represents judgment. The second part that is highlighted says that the ruler will make war with the saints, that’s me and you by the way, and prevailed against them. Check your dictionary because prevail means: pre·vailed, pre·vail·ing, pre·vails
Luk 17:35 Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
Luk 17:36 Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
Mat_13:26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.
Mat_13:27 So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?
Mat_13:29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.
Mat_13:30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.
Mat_13:36 Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.
Mat_13:38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;
Mat_13:40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.
Now you can read this in your own “Bible” because some of the verses are skipped in my search of relevant words and you need to fact check me. But the tares are the children of the wicked one, Hasatan, the devil and they are gathered first and burned up and then the wheat, that’s us, that is why the Feast of Shavuot is so important, is put into His barn. Folks I did not make this up. It came from our Savior. Hasatan has perverted the Word to make it look like the “rapture” is a free ticket out of something when in fact it is a road into judgment. Search the Scriptures. Test and try all things.
