The Remaining Old Testament Prophecies

  Will Finally Be Fulfilled Soon


PURPOSE


The primary purpose of this document is to illustrate to believers and unbelievers alike that:

(a)  Everything has been properly foretold by God for the exclusive benefit of "Hearing" and "Seeing" Man (1); and

(b)  The suffering mankind has endured (and the suffering ahead, which will surpass anything seen by mankind yet) is the result of ignoring God and His Laws; Spiritual Laws are as applicable and Universal as the Physical Laws (Law of Gravity, for example) - regardless if one chooses to believe them or not. (2)


Just as every single prophecy regarding Christ's First Coming was fulfilled, all prophecies concerning His Second Coming will be fulfilled without fail - regardless of what any one individual may want to believe.

We pray and hope that these last warnings may awaken those who need to Hear and need to See (1), but who, at this point, are still deaf and blind.

NOTE: To avoid theological double talk - when we speak of a Messianic Earthly Kingdom we speak of a long period in Time in which man will live on Earth in accordance to the Law of God as delivered, explained and exemplified by Jesus Christ.

This Messianic Earthly Kingdom was intended by God  to be established by the spread of the Good News through love and acts thereof. This was obviously not done. Therefore, God will now directly intervene. Through pain (3), He will lead mankind, for its own good, to live according to His Laws. This "God will directly intervene" phenomena is what we call the Second Coming of Christ - which should not be confused with the Final Judgment and the end of creation as spoken of in the Holy Scriptures.

 At the end of this lengthy period, the world - that is - creation, as we know it - will come to an end. As we have stated else where, that would be on or about ca. 2832 AD. No further clarification from us regarding this issue will be forthcoming any time in the near future.


INTRODUCTION

The Prophet Isaiah foretold (4)  that the lion and the lamb would lie down together when the shoot out of the stock of Jesse (Jesus Christ, according to our Christian Faith) would come. He so stated....

"The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid, and the calf and the young lion and the fatted beast together, and a little child shall lead them.  And the cow and the she-bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together; and the lion shall eat straw like the ox.  And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the adder, and the weaned child shall put forth its hand to the viper's den." [Isaiah 11:6-7]


Obviously Isaiah was not speaking of the First Coming of our Lord Jesus Christ since there has been no fulfillment of this global prophecy. Neither was Malachi  when he said:

3:1 Behold, I send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me; and the Lord whom ye seek will suddenly come to his temple, and the Angel of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he cometh, saith the Lord of hosts. 3:2 But who shall endure the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? For he will be like a refiner's fire, and like fullers' lye. 3:3 And he shall sit [as] a refiner and purifier of silver; and he will purify the children of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver; and they shall offer unto the Lord an oblation in righteousness.

3:4 Then shall the oblation of Judah and Jerusalem be pleasant unto the Lord, as in the days of old, and as in former years. 3:5 And I will come near to you to judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against the false swearers, and against those that oppress the hired servant in [his] wages, the widow and the fatherless, and that turn aside the stranger [from his right], and fear not me, saith the Lord of hosts. 3:6 For I the Lord change not, and ye, sons of Jacob, are not consumed. [Malachi 3:1-6] 

It is patently clear that neither Isaiah nor Malachi were speaking of a time immediately after Jesus Christ's First Coming. They were obviously speaking of  a time after the establishment of the Kingdom of the Messiah, Jesus Christ, amongst men in Time; they were not speaking about Eternity.

Now, the Prophet Zepheniah, obviously speaking of that same Messianic Earthly Kingdom, said:

 For then will I turn to the peoples a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of the Lord, to serve him with one consent. From beyond the rivers of Cush my suppliants, the daughter of my dispersed, shall bring mine oblation.  In that day thou shalt not be ashamed for all thy doings wherein thou hast transgressed against me; for then I will take away out of the midst of thee them that exult in thy pride, and thou shalt no more be haughty because of my holy mountain.

And I will leave in the midst of thee an afflicted and poor people, and they shall trust in the name of the Lord. The remnant of Israel shall not work unrighteousness, nor speak lies; neither shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth: but they shall feed and lie down, and none shall make them afraid. Exult, O daughter of Zion; shout, O Israel; rejoice and be glad with all the heart, O daughter of Jerusalem:  The Lord hath taken away thy judgments, he hath cast out thine enemy; the King of Israel, the Lord, is in the midst of thee; thou shalt not see evil any more. [Zepheniah 3:9-15]


COMMENTS

Of course, for those who do not believe that Jesus Christ is the Messiah - specifically the members of Judaism - it is logical that those prophecies have not been fulfilled, but, for those who believe that Jesus Christ is indeed the Messiah, then, these prophecies are only applicable to His Second Coming.

Therefore, before such "Milk and Honey", "Happily Ever After", "Riding Into the Sunset" Hollywood style scenario takes place at the End of These Times, the "settlement of a few accounts" must take place. We understand that those who need to arise from the heavy sleep of indolence they live in want to "Have their cake and eat it too and not even gain weight!", however, that would be the Vatican version of how the accounts are to be settled (5) and not the way in which they will be.

Should the reader have any doubt about such "collection procedure", we recommend that he/she becomes familiar with the Old Testament and the multitude of "account settlements" which God allowed in the 4,000 years before Christ - nothing has changed in the procedure.

Like with the financial settlements in the world, the creditor sends a Warning that the account is past due; then he places a Call for working out the payment terms on the past due account with "easy terms" for the debtor; and finally, if the debtor continues remiss in his payments, the forcible Collection of what is due takes place without fail.

Well... here you have it very nicely spelled out by the Zepheniah. As you review the immediate future of the world, keep in mind the following:

(a)  "Israel", the Chosen People of God, became those who are members of the family of Jesus Christ: "...those who hear the word of God and act on it."  [Luke 8:21]

(b) The countries mentioned in Zepheniah's prophecy are actual physical locations but also symbolic representations of countries not known yet by dear Zepheniah; and

(c)  The family of Jesus Christ, as further expanded by Paul:

Where [is the] wise? where scribe? where disputer of this world? has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? For since, in the wisdom of God, the world by wisdom has not known God, God has been pleased by the foolishness of the preaching to save those that believe...

Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men. For consider your calling, brethren, that [there are] not many wise according to flesh, not many powerful, not many high-born. But God has chosen the foolish things of the world, that he may put to shame the wise; and God has chosen the weak things of the world, that he may put to shame the strong things; and the ignoble things of the world, and the despised, has God chosen, [and] things that are not, that he may annul the things that are; so that no flesh should boast before God. But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who has been made to us wisdom from God, and righteousness, and holiness, and redemption; that according as it is written, He that boasts, let him boast in [the] Lord. [1 Corinthians 1:20-31]



CONCLUSION

But first, The M+G+R Foundation Comments on Paul's words:

So much for those who claim to be "of Christ" and "officially represent Him" (6); so much for the Doctorates upon Doctorates; so much for the Princes of the Church; and so much for the ego inflated "Theologians" who instead of being students (logians) of God (Theo) should be Logologians, students of the Word of God so that they could then be Obedient to the Word of God - a Word that has been clearly transmitted to man through the Sacred Scriptures and personally explained to the deaf, blind and stiff-necked "men of God" by our Lord Jesus Christ, to be later brought to our attention again (7).

Obviously not much has changed, except that now, the final Invoice (8) will be presented and human wisdom, as Our Lord Jesus Christ told us, will be useless.

Without much ado, the proverbial floor is now ceded to our dear Zepheniah so that he may explain to those who have "Ears to Hear" and "Eyes to See" how the aforementioned "Collection of the Debt Process" will take place, thus affording them a little time to make the appropriate arrangements (9) before is too late - even for them.


  God's warning of destruction

1 The word of the Lord that came unto Zephaniah...  2 I will utterly take away everything from off the face of the ground, saith the Lord: 3 I will take away man and beast; I will take away the fowl of the heavens and the fishes of the sea, and the stumbling-blocks with the wicked, and I will cut off mankind from off the face of the ground, saith the Lord.

4 And I will stretch forth my hand upon Judah, and upon all the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and I will cut off the remnant of Baal from this place, the name of the Chemarim with the priests; 5 and them that bow down to the host of the heavens upon the housetops; and them that bow down to the Lord, that swear by [him], and swear by Malcham; 6 and them that turn back from after the Lord, and that do not seek the Lord, nor inquire for him. 7 Be silent at the presence of the Lord God; for the day of the Lord is at hand; for the Lord hath prepared a sacrifice, he hath hallowed his guests.

8 And it shall come to pass in the day of the Lord's sacrifice, that I will punish the princes, and the king's sons, and all such as are clothed with foreign apparel. 9 And in that day will I punish all those that leap over the threshold, who fill their master's house with violence and deceit.
10 And in that day, saith the Lord, there shall be the noise of a cry from the fish-gate, and a howling from the second [quarter], and a great crashing from the hills. 11 Howl, ye inhabitants of Maktesh; for all the people of Canaan are cut down, all they that are laden with silver are cut off.


12 And it shall come to pass at that time, [that] I will search Jerusalem with lamps, and punish the men that are settled on their lees, that say in their heart, the Lord will not do good, neither will he do evil. 13 And their wealth shall become a booty, and their houses a desolation; and they shall build houses, and not inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and not drink the  wine thereof. 14 The great day of the Lord is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly. The voice of the day of the Lord: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly.

15 That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of ruin and desolation, a day of darkness and gloom, a day of clouds and gross darkness, 16 a day of the trumpet and alarm, against the fenced cities and against the high battlements. 17 And I will bring distress upon men, and they shall walk like blind men; for they have sinned against the Lord; and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as dung: 18 their silver and their gold shall not be able to deliver them, in the day of the Lord's wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for a full end, yea, a sudden [end], shall he make of all them that dwell in the land. [Zepheniah 1: 1-18]

  A call to repentance

1 Collect yourselves and gather together, O nation without shame, 2 before the decree bring forth, [before] the day pass away as chaff, before the fierce anger of the Lord come upon you, before the day of the Lord's anger come upon you. 3 Seek the Lord, all ye meek of the land, who have performed his ordinance; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the Lord's anger. 4 For Gazah shall be forsaken, and Ashkelon shall be a desolation; they shall drive out Ashdod at noonday, and Ekron shall be rooted up.

5 Woe unto the inhabitants of the sea-coast, the nation of the Cherethites! The word of the Lord is against you, O Canaan, land of the Philistines: I will destroy thee, that there shall be no inhabitant; 6 and the sea-coast shall be cave-dwellings for shepherds, and folds for flocks. 7 And the coast shall be for the remnant of the house of Judah; they shall feed thereon: in the houses of Ashkelon shall they lie down in the evening: for the Lord their God shall visit them, and turn again their captivity.

8 I have heard the reproach of Moab, and the revilings of the children of Ammon, wherewith they have reproached my people, and magnified themselves against their border. 9 Therefore, [as] I live, saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, Moab shall certainly be as Sodom, and the children of Ammon as Gomorrah, a possession of nettles, and salt-pits, and a perpetual desolation; the remnant of my people shall spoil them, and the residue of my nation shall possess them.

10 This shall they have for their pride, because they have reproached and magnified themselves against the people of the Lord of hosts. 11 The Lord will be terrible unto them; for he will famish all the gods of the earth; and all the isles of the nations shall worship him, every one from his place. 12 Ye Ethiopians also, ye shall be the slain of my sword. 13 And he will stretch out his hand against the north, and destroy Assyria; and will make Nineveh a desolation, a place of drought like the wilderness.

14 And flocks shall lie down in the midst of her, all the crowd of beasts; both the pelican and the bittern shall lodge in the chapiters thereof; a voice shall sing in the windows; desolation shall be on the thresholds: for he hath laid bare the cedar work. 15 This is the rejoicing city that dwelt in security, that said in her heart, I am, and there is none else beside me: how is she become a desolation, a couching-place for beasts! Every one that passeth by her shall hiss, shall wave his hand. [Zepheniah 2: 1-15]

The sin, redemption, and future of Jerusalem

1 Woe to her that is rebellious and corrupted, to the oppressing city! 2 She hearkened not to the voice; she received not correction; she confided not in the Lord; she drew not near her God. 3 Her princes in the midst of her are roaring lions; her judges are evening wolves, that leave nothing for the morning. 4 Her prophets are vain-glorious, treacherous persons; her priests profane the sanctuary, they do violence to the law. 5 The righteous  God is in the midst of her: he doeth no wrong. Every morning doth he bring his judgment to light; it faileth not: but the unrighteous knoweth no shame.

6 I have cut off nations: their battlements are desolate; I made their streets waste, that none passeth by; their cities are destroyed, so that there is no man, so that there is no inhabitant. 7 I said, Only fear me, receive correction; so her dwelling shall not be cut off, howsoever I may punish her. But they rose early, they corrupted all their doings. 8 Therefore wait ye for me, saith the Lord, until the day that I rise up to the prey; for my determination is to assemble the nations, that I may gather the kingdoms together, to pour upon them mine indignation, -- all my fierce anger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy.

9 For then will I turn to the peoples a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of the Lord, to serve him with one consent. 10 From beyond the rivers of Cush my suppliants, the daughter of my dispersed, shall bring mine oblation. 11 In that day thou shalt not be ashamed for all thy doings wherein thou hast transgressed against me; for then I will take away out of the midst of thee them that exult in thy pride, and thou shalt no more be haughty because of my holy mountain.

12 And I will leave in the midst of thee an afflicted and poor people, and they shall trust in the name of the Lord. 13 The remnant of Israel shall not work unrighteousness, nor speak lies; neither shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth: but *they* shall feed and lie down, and none shall make them afraid. 14 Exult, O daughter of Zion; shout, O Israel; rejoice and be glad with all the heart, O daughter of Jerusalem: 3:15 The Lord hath taken away thy judgments, he hath cast out thine enemy; the King of Israel, the Lord, is in the midst of thee; thou shalt not see evil any more.

16 In that day it shall be said to Jerusalem, Fear not; Zion, let not thy hands be slack. 17 the Lord thy God is in thy midst, a mighty one that will save: he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love; he will exult over thee with singing. 18 I will gather them that sorrow for the solemn assemblies, who were of thee: the reproach of it was a burden [unto them]. 19 Behold, at that time I will deal with all them that afflict thee; and I will save her that halted, and gather her that was driven out; and I will make them a praise and a name in all the lands where they have been put to shame.

20 At that time will I bring you, yea, at the time that I gather you; for I will make you a name and a praise, among all the peoples of the earth, when I shall turn again your captivity before your eyes, saith the Lord. [Zepheniah 3: 1-20]


EPILOGUE

Just HOLD THAT FINGER! Before you hit the "Delete" button and erase this document from your computer - you may want to review the consequences. (10)

Better yet - You may want to find out if you are even part of the family of Jesus Christ - after all, you may not be just yet and need to do some work to be accepted by Him as one of His.  By His Own definition, Jesus' family is defined as: "My mother and my brothers are those who hear the word of God and act on it."[Luke 8:21]

What happens to those who "do not hear the word of God and act on it" - including the Administrators of the Roman Catholic Church?

Jesus also gave us that answer:

"And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted unto heaven, shalt be brought down to hell; for if the mighty works, which have been done in thee, had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day. But I say unto you, That it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for thee." [S. Matthew 11:23-24]

Commentary: Capernaum's transgression was unbelief; lack of faith in Jesus Christ, thus not acting on His Word. In spite of the mighty works which Jesus Christ did in  Capernaum they  refused to believe in Him.

Brethren - it could not be any clearer. Now go ahead and hit that "Delete" button if you wish - God gave you a Free Will. We are at peace (11), regardless of the option that you exercise.

As for those who are on denial and refuse to have "Ears to Hear" and "Eyes to See", this is what Jesus had to say:

[Luke 12:54-57]    And he said also to the people, When ye see a cloud rise out of the west, straightway ye say, There cometh a shower; and so it is.   And when ye see the south wind blow, ye say, There will be heat; and it cometh to pass.   Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that ye do not discern this time?  Yea, and why even of yourselves judge ye not what is right?


NOTES                              

(1) Who are these?
(2) Why Lord?
(3) God's megaphone: Pain
(4) Full text of Isaiah 11:1- 10:

 And there shall come forth a shoot out of the stock of Jesse, and a branch out of his roots shall be fruitful;  and the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord. And his delight will be in the fear of the Lord; and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears; but with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.

And righteousness shall be the girdle of his reins, and faithfulness the girdle of his loins.  The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid, and the calf and the young lion and the fatted beast together, and a little child shall lead them.  And the cow and the she-bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together; and the lion shall eat straw like the ox.  And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the adder, and the weaned child shall put forth its hand to the viper's den.

  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.  And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, standing as a banner of the peoples: the nations shall seek it; and his resting-place shall be glory.

(5) Humanly speaking - as the Vatican Administrators do: Would you blame the Vatican for being in Denial? After all, Malachi clearly stated: "And he shall sit [as] a refiner and purifier of silver; and he will purify the children of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver;" By the "children of Levi" is meant "the priestly class".

(6)  [Matthew 24:5] For many shall come in my name, saying, I am the Christ, and they shall mislead many. 

Please note that Jesus said "many" and not one. Thus the question that we must pose to ourselves is: "Who have been those, who have been "many" and who have been telling us for centuries that they are Christ - or His equivalent?"

Do not be shocked about this  since it was announced well in advance by John [1John 2:18-20]  when he stated:

Little children, it is [the] last hour, and, according as ye have heard that antichrist comes, even now there have come many antichrists, whence we know that it is [the] last hour.  They went out from among us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have surely remained with us, but that they might be made manifest that none are of us. And ye have [the] unction from the holy [one], and ye know all things.

(7)  This time, by the Virgin Mary for the new deaf, blind and stiff-necked "men of God" of The Vatican.
(8)  The Gates of Hell will not prevail... but some conditions do apply.
(9)  [Luke 12:58 -59]    When thou goest with thine adversary to the magistrate, as thou art in the way, give diligence that thou mayest be delivered from him; lest he hale thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and the officer cast thee into prison.  I tell thee, thou shalt not depart thence, till thou hast paid the very last mite.
(10) The consequences if you decide to ignore these final warnings
