The Book of
Professing Christians who study the Bible and therefore, are not fooled by Satan when he appears on earth at the 6th trump claiming to be Jesus, prior to our Lord's actual return at the 7th trump, will receive eternal life then, i.e. the 1st resurrection.
Those who are fooled and worship Satan, thinking he is Christ, can still receive "eternal life", but it can not happen until after they under go 1000 years of training during the Millennium, and then must pass a final test in order to earn "eternal life" at the "Great White Throne of Judgment".
Those who don't pass that test will have earned the opposite, i.e. to be consumed and be no more/perish. The same fate as Satan's! See Ezekiel 28:11-19, especially 17,18 &19.
God is a consuming Fire!
The prophetic events that our Father's Word foretells us shall transpire in this final generation are not only taking place right before our very eyes, but they are growing in intensity and occurring at an ever increasing rate, much like labor pangs (Mat. 24:8) just before a birth... and in this case just before the birth of a new age. And though it is written there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes (shakeups) in divers places (Matthew 24:7) as the beast of Rev. 13:1, i.e. the One World Political/Social/Economic/Religious system fueled by economic globalization, rises from the sea of people, there is joyous news that lies beyond the great tribulation.
That joyous news is called the "gospel of the king-dom" which is the "good news" that the King (Jesus Christ) and His dominion shall come and destroy Satan's New World Order and establish His righteousness, His truth and justice, in all the earth from henceforth even for ever. In fact, it is for that very reason Christ was born.
This same purpose, born to be King of kings and rule all nations, is also found in the New Testament.Isaiah 9:6-7
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
 Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.
And so it that Jesus Christ at this very moment sits at the right hand of the Father as our advocate (1 Jn. 2:1) and high priest (Heb. 4:14) until such time as the Father has appointed the Day of Vengeance (Isa. 61:2) and His return. You "see", this time when He comes it will not be to ride into Jerusalem on a lowly ass and to suffer the cross to pay the price for whosoever will repent and return to the Father, but rather He shall ride into Jerusalem on a white steed wielding all power and authority, for all power is given unto Him in both heaven and earth (Matthew 28:18 "And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.") In that day when Christ returns it is written that every knee shall bow to His name, to His supreme authority, which is His Word (Isa. 45:23, Rom. 14:11, Philip. 2:10).Rev. 12:5
And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.
Revelation 19 gives us another good "picture" of His second advent.
He is Faithful and True as Lord of lords and He judges righteously as King of kings.Rev. 19:11-16
And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
The Millennial reign of the righteous King and His dominion is the subject of this 32nd chapter in the book titled Yahveh's Salvation (Isai-ah). Read it and be filled with comfort and joy for it shall happen exactly as it is written. 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.
 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and His name is called The Word of God.
 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
16] And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.
This King who shall reign in righteousness, meaning with truth and justice for all, is Jesus Christ who shall return at the sound of the 7th Trump and establish His everlasting kingdom upon the earth. And He shall rule all nations with "rod of iron" which means they shall adhere to His laws and statutes that shall be taught and enforced by His elect who shall rule and reign with Him. In fact, that is a promise to those who hold fast to His Word and endure until the end thereby overcoming the beast in this final generation. Here is that promise which is true and sure:Isaiah 32:1
Behold, a king shall reign in righteousness, and princes shall rule in judgment.
Do you have the ears to hear (understand) what the Spirit (of truth, John 14:17) has to say... or are you caught up in the traditions of men who teach rapture theories that suppose "believers" do not need to hold fast and endure unto the end because they will be swooped into the clouds before Satan's reign? The fact is that you are to remain a virgin bride unto the coming of the true Messiah... which coming occurs ONLY AFTER the son of perdition Satan, comes to the earth as per Rev. 12:7-9 and sits in the temple of God claiming to be God (2 Thes. 2). 2 Thes. 2 is where Paul warned us all not be deceived by "any means" as to the chronological order of events leading up to the return of Christ. Have you read it? If so, the question is: "Are you going to be as the first woman taken in the field (Mat. 24:40), who is taken and seduced by the false messiah who comes first, or are you going to endure and "remain behind" laboring in the field unto the coming of the Lord? Here's another question: Have you ever taken a Strong's Concordance and looked up the word "endure" in Matthew 24:13 "But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved." The word "endure" literally means "left behind"!Rev. 2:25-29
But that which ye have already hold fast till I come.  And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:  And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father.  And I will give him the morning star.  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
Here is some more documentation of the promise to reign and rule to those who remain true and overcome the beast in this final generation.endure, G5278 ???????? hupomeno? hoop-om-en'-o
From G5259 and G3306; to stay under (behind), that is, remain; figuratively to undergo, that is, bear (trials), have fortitude, persevere: - abide, endure, (take) patient (-ly), suffer, tarry behind.
During those thousand years God's elect shall teach His people the difference between the holy (the true Christ) and the profane (the false Christ) and "cause them" to discern between the unclean and the clean. They shall also "stand in judgment" and rule in righteousness, i.e. rule justly according to the laws and statutes of God's Word. Your documentation for that can be found in Ezekiel 44 verses 23-24 where it is written concerning the duties of the Zadok (vs.15) during the Millennium.Rev. 3:21-22
To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
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.
This next verse gives us "four" pictorial analogies of safety and refuge from adversity whereby we can understand on a spiritual level what a comfort and blessing the teaching of God's elect will bring to this earth, an earth that has just endured the spiritual desolation by the abominable desolator himself, Satan, claiming to be Christ.Ezekiel 44:23-24
And they [the Zadok, i.e. God's elect] shall teach my people the difference between the holy and profane, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean.  And in controversy they shall stand in judgment; and they shall judge it according to my judgments: and they shall keep my laws and my statutes in all mine assemblies; and they shall hallow my sabbaths.
Notice the four conditions given against which God's Word, taught by His elect, gives refuge and deliverance and protection:Isaiah 32:2 And a [or each] man shall be as an hiding place from the wind, and a covert from the tempest; as rivers of water in a dry place, as the shadow [protection] of a great rock in a weary land.
You "see", comfort and peace of mind and spiritual protection is what the Word of God gives right now to those who believe and trust in Him. They have the gospel armour on and in place, as in the truth of God's Word sealed in their foreheads (minds), and thus they stand on solid ground (rock) and are completely protected when the four winds blow at the end of this flesh age.wind = spiritual storm
tempest = flood as in an overflowing flood of lies
dry place = a (spiritual) desert
weary land = faint, thirsty, languid
And so it is during the Millennium God's Word shall flow like a mighty river unto all the earth and there will be no holding back or attempts to diminishing His truth and justice. In other words, during the Millennial reign of Jesus Christ and His saints there will be no famine for the hearing of the Word of God (Amos 8:11-13) nor a dearth for the precious living water. It is written and so shall it come to pass.Psalm 18:2
The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.
There shall be a great awaking (a rude awaking for many) when Christ returns and the veil of this flesh age is parted asunder. Again, there shall be no holding back or dimming (diminishing) of the teaching of truth by God's elect, those with eyes to see. The Word of God shall go forth and all ears shall plainly hear and adhere to the Word of God... for as we already read, His laws and statutes will be enforced with a "rod of iron", meaning with discipline. And the eyes of them that see shall not be dim, and the ears of them that hear shall hearken.
And not only will all eyes be opened to His truth, but as it is written in Isa. 14:15-16 and in Revelation 20:2, Satan shall be bound and cast into the pit during the thousand years we call the Millennium. Thus there shall be "no darkness" for his evil spirit and influence will not go forth during that time... until the thousand years are ended at which time he shall be released for a short season of testing to see if any shall still swallow his liberal garbage, i.e. eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. At that time, any who do eat from that burned out tree, i.e. who follow after Satan, shall surely DIE... only this death will not be a fleshly shadow (type) of death, which is given once unto all men (Heb. 9:27), but rather the REAL THING, the second death, the death and perishing of the soul in the lake of fire (Rev. 21:8)!
What a time we have to look forward to when the whole earth shall be filled with glory and the knowledge of the LORD! Psalm 72:19 "And blessed be His glorious name for ever: and let the whole earth be filled with his glory; Amen, and Amen."Rev. 20:2-3
And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,  And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.
"Rash" also means "anxiety"... of which there shall be no more. Anxiety is caused by a lack of truth and a lack of knowledge, such as in not knowing what tomorrow brings for example. You "see", people only fear the unknown, like when they cannot see what is coming at them or where to walk in pitch darkness! That is why there is a great deal of anxiety in our land at this late hour. Our people have been so drawn away from Father's Word, the light of truth, and been spoon fed lies and liberal spin for decades now by the main stream media, that on the whole, they are clueless as to what is happening in the world around them as the beast of Rev. 13:1 rises from among the people and the waves it causes roar! On the other hand, God's elect have peace of mind and their footing is sure because they have labored to know the Word of God and they believe with certitude all the things He has foretold them would take place in this final generation. The heart also of the rash [hasty] shall understand knowledge, and the tongue of the stammerers shall be ready to speak plainly.
Yes, there is going to be quite a contrast to the way things are in this final generation of the Fig Tree compared with the way things shall be when the righteous King reigns with His saints. This next verse gives us an example of the great turnabout, the setting of things aright that are now turned upside down!
First of all, a "vile person" is none other than a "fool". And since all true wisdom comes from the Word of God, those who lack His knowledge and wisdom, even though they may call themselves Christians (virgins) awaiting the return of Christ, are foolish indeed (just read the parable of the 10 virgins in Mat. 25) . The vile person shall be no more called liberal, nor the churl said to be bountiful.
Secondly, to understand this verse one must know that the word "liberal" used here means "magnanimous" or "noble" concerning righteousness. However, today the term "liberal" has flip-flopped and means just the opposite! In fact, it would be more closely associated with the vile person, the "nabal", as in the unwise and ungodly! The point is that whereas today's "liberals" are respected (noble-ized) and held in high esteem (as magnanimous) by many, especially by the main stream media who are mostly 'nabals' themselves, during the Millennium they will be looked upon for what they are... fools indeed!vile, H5036 na?ba?l naw-bawl'
From H5034; stupid; wicked (especially impious): - fool (-ish, -ish man, -ish woman), vile person.
Likewise, churls, who are scoundrels and knaves, spiritual low-lifes who are "misers of His Word", shall no longer be looked upon as being smart or wise or rich or noble. They will be exposed as the miserly scoundrels (churls) of truth and justice they really are! You "see", there is going to be a famine in the Millennium all right... only instead of it being for the hearing of God's Word, it will be for the hearing of liberalism and socialistic ideas espoused by fools who are vile persons indeed.
Here are the characteristics of a fool, a "nabal", a hypocrite pretending to be something he or she is not... noble and magnanimous!
Unlike those who are "wise", fools speak foolish things because their hearts (minds) are bent on working iniquity, which is "unrighteousness", that which is contrary to God's Word. Thus they display forth their utter hypocrisy when pretending to be righteous and noble, etc., because they speak against the LORD, i.e. they speaks those things which are vain and contrary to truth and righteousness. That in a nutshell defines today's "liberals", a bunch of self-serving hypocrites who pretend to be magnanimous and noble in their "cause"! Worse yet, those poor spiritually hungry and thirsty souls who are unable to discern between the clean and the unclean, become filled with emptiness and become spiritually dead dry bones when they listen to such vile preachers and pundits... as in buy into what they say! For the vile person will speak villany, and his heart will work iniquity, to practise hypocrisy, and to utter error against the LORD, to make empty the soul of the hungry, and he will cause the drink of the thirsty to fail.
Yes, there is famine and thirst in the land today, even as our Father's Word told us their would be. The good news is that it will end when Yashua Messiah returns at the sound of the 7th Trump.
These vile persons and misers who withhold His Word shall surely reap what they have sown when the King of kings and Lord of lords returns to this earth... for their works are evil indeed and their reward shall be just accordingly!Amos 8:11-13
Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:  And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find it.  In that day shall the fair virgins and young men faint for thirst.
The instruments or weapons of liberal scoundrels are indeed immoral and cause great harm to those who are poor in spirit. Yes, these scoundrels and churls lie awake at night trying to devise ways to con and pull the wool the wool over the eyes of those who live in "red states". Too bad that their lying words often sound so good to the "untrained ear", to those who do not have ears to hear, and thus their words become as fiery darts shot forth to spiritually destroy them. Remember also we learned in that today's version of "liberals" hate truth and justice and make it a point to speak out against those who speak uprightly. The instruments also of the churl are evil: he deviseth wicked devices to destroy the poor with lying words, even when the needy speaketh right.
However, such is not the mind-set of those who love and serve God. They are seekers of truth and righteousness and always seek ways to promote those things that are good and noble, especially the Word of God. For that, they shall also reap what they sow, and so enduring they shall stand in the end to receive the promises we read of earlier in Isaiah. How precious to Him are those who love and serve the Lord in truth and in righteousness.
The day approaches dear ones when the four winds shall blow and this flesh age shall come to an end. Therefore now is the time to build your house upon the solid Rock of His Word so that your foundation is sure and you are not shaken nor swept away in the flood of lies and spiritual deception that is all but upon us. If you have "ears to hear" then be "wise" indeed and hear the words of wisdom spoken not by men, but by the mouth of the Lord: But the liberal [noble, righteous] deviseth liberal [noble, righteous] things; and by liberal [noble, righteous] things shall he stand.
That rock is the ROCK of His salvation, the Living Word of God, upon which solid faith is built (Heb. 11:1)!Matthew 7:24-29
Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
Without that foundation you have no place of refuge, no peace of mind, and no deliverance from the spiritual onslaught taking place in this final generation. Psalm 18:2 "The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower." And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
Of course you can choose to be foolish and ignore what the Spirit has to say and not build your house upon the Rock. You can go to some church and listen to preachers and build your house on the vain (empty) traditions of what men say.
God's Word is the authority, all of it, and not the teachings and traditions of men. The "wise" therefore listen to Him! You can do as you so choose! And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:
 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine:
 For He taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.
We shall read more about the spiritual desolation even yet to take place... until the Spirit of truth is poured out upon us from on High! How precious indeed is our Father's Word.
We learned earlier how it is that our great land has become infested, or shall we say leavened, with the evil rudiments (immoral doctrines and socialist ideologies) of "vile persons", those foolish and unwise workers of iniquity we read about in vss. 5 & 6 of this 32nd chapter. Of course they are not identified by the main stream media as "vile persons" and certainly not as "scoffers walking after their own lusts (2 Peter 3:3)", but indeed they are today's "liberals"... meaning those on the left who oppose that which is noble and righteous while at the same time believing that they are.
We also learned that this one nation under God has been cursed with a multitude of religious "stammerers" who spew forth babel (confusion) and "churls" (misers) who are those who withhold the Word of Truth from our people. All this has combined to produce the great famine of the last days that Jesus Christ spoke about in Matthew 24 and Mark 13, that same spiritual famine Amos defined for us in Amos 8 vs. 11 as, "...not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD".
Of course we commonly know what happens when people go without food and water for an extended period of time. They become weak and sickly and pestilence and disease begin to abound... and death soon follows in their wake. The point is that while this is true on a physical level it is even more so on a spiritual level. When our people go without eating the Bread of Life and drinking the Living Water they become spiritually ill and morally diseased and our land becomes a "death valley", a valley of spiritually dead dry bones, the very valley looked upon by Ezek-i-el (God is my strength) in the 37th chapter of the book bearing his name. The "spiritually dead" Christians are to be brought back to life. #8037
The question then to consider is: Do you have eyes to "see" with enough spiritual discernment to be able to look out across the fruited plain and see past the peace and prosperity of this final generation to behold what a "valley of dry bones", spiritually dead people, we are fast becoming? It is time dear Christians to wise up and "rise up" and begin to listen to and adhere to what our heavenly Father has to say at this late hour, for the land is becoming spiritually desolate indeed. Unfortunately, there are many who claim to be Christian and claim to be followers of Christ, but because they know not the Word of God and therefore know not Christ (Mat. 7:23), they are going to find themselves on the outside looking in when the 7th Trump sounds and Jesus Christ returns (Mat. 7:21-23). Yes, in that day there shall be much mourning and weeping and gnashing of teeth (Mat. 8:12)! It is written and so shall it come to pass. We shall even read of it later in this study.
You "see", in order to follow Christ, one must be willing to cast aside church doctrines and traditions of men and open his or her ears to "hear now" His voice... which is His Word. And so it is in this 32nd chapter that our Father gives a "call to hear", a call to hear HIS VOICE, and a call to tremble, a call to humble and bare oneself before the Lord. In other words, we are to take heed not to what men say but rather to hear and revere what the Word of God says, because desolation is come upon the land and all those who do not have the seal of God in their foreheads (Rev. 9:4), who are not fully nourished with the Bread of Life and have not drunken from the fountain of Living Water (Jn. 14:4), shall surely faint and fall in the wilderness (spiritually desolate place) when the false messiah, that low-life serpent, the abominable desolator spoken of by Daniel the prophet, comes and casts his world wide web of deceit and spews forth all his abominations like an overflowing flood! Rev. 12:15 "And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood."
Thus saith the LORD:
This is addressed to the woman, even to the daughters of Jerusalem (Luke 23:28-31), i.e. to the true House of Israel who has become as prosperous as a "fat cat" and believes herself to be secure in her salvation and in need of nothing (spiritually speaking, see Rev. 3:17)). In other words, this is addressed to America, and to Great Britain, and to Canada, and to the rest of their sister Christian nations.Isaiah 32:9
Rise up, ye women that are at ease; hear my voice, ye careless daughters; give ear unto my speech.
Did you know that the wandering of our forefathers in the wilderness for forty years was an ensample, a visual physical type of this final generation's spiritual wandering in the wilderness? In fact, all the things that happened unto them were ensamples for us and those things were written for our benefit, for our admonition, yes... for us upon whom the ends of the world (age) are come. 1 Cor. 10:11 "Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world (aion, age) are come." Paul refers to this ensample of our forefathers wandering in the wilderness in the great book of Hebrews when he teaches concerning "hearing His voice", the same admonition we are reading about here in Isaiah 32!Note: If you are not familiar with where the so-called lost tribes of the House of Israel are located today, contact Artisan Publishers at www.artisanpublishers.com and purchase the little booklet The Abrahamic Covenant, by E. Raymond Capt.) or log unto pamphlets #1064 and #1020 on this web site.
This is a quotation from the great 95th Psalm and has nothing to do with going to church and listening to preachers, but rather with opening your ears and listening to HIS voice, which is His Word!Hebrews 3:7-9
Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost saith, To day if ye will hear His voice,
To "harden your heart (mind)" is to be closed minded, i.e. to be hard-headed and stubbornly hold on to religious traditions and teachings thereby refusing to accept the truth of that which is written. Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness:
So too were the words our Father spoke to the woman (Israel) through Moses in Deuteronomy 32 written for this final generation, the time when peace and prosperity would abound and our people would be drawn away from the Rock upon which this great nation America was founded. In fact, the great Song of Moses in Deuteronomy 32 (see Deut. 31:30) foretells us how things shall be in our generation... this very day, To Day. Have you heard what your Father has to say? When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my works forty years.
Though you may study with a teacher, even a good teacher, be it known unto you that in these last days our Father speaks to us through His Word (Heb. 1:2). If you merely listen to men espouse church doctrines and traditions instead of studying His word (2 Tim. 2:15) and hearing His Voice, then you are in serious danger of being caught in the flood we read of earlier. You will become as the first woman "taken" in the field (Mat. 24:40), who is the unwise woman "carried away" and seduced by the false messiah. You "see", your Father wants you to pay attention to His Word, not the words of men who will take out of context that which is written and twist the Word to fit their theories and doctrines. Their own words are "vanity", emptiness, and will NOT give you life! That is why Christ warned us in Matthew 24 and Mark 13 concerning those who claim to be His representatives, i.e. Christian ministers, priests, preachers, bishops, whatevers, etc., because as "churls" they would starve our people and deceive the multitudes by teaching their traditions instead of feeding them the Bread. Mark 13:5-6 "And Jesus answering them began to say, Take heed lest any man deceive you:  For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many." If you wish to be a "wise" virgin then stick to His doctrine, His Word, and beware of the leaven (doctrine) of the religious, of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees (Mat. 16:11).Deut. 32:1-4
Give ear, O ye heavens, and I will speak; and hear, O earth, the words of my mouth.
His Word is that Living Water that comes down from above! My doctrine shall drop as the rain, my speech shall distil as the dew, as the small rain upon the tender herb, and as the showers upon the grass:
We talked about the foundation of the ROCK. Those who love and serve Him, whose faith is unshakable because they stand firmly upon that Rock, know and proclaim that His works are perfect and His ways, the laws and statutes and commands contained in His Word, are just and true. They are those overcomers of the beast in these last days who in Revelation 15 are found singing those very words from the Song of Moses we just quoted ... further documenting that it was written for our day! Because I will publish [proclaim] the name [authority] of the LORD: ascribe ye greatness unto our God.
 He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he.
The Song of Moses also explains and foretells us how it is that our people are being, and even largely have become, drawn away from the Rock, the foundation of all truth and wisdom.Rev. 15:3
And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints.
Jeshurun is a figurative name for Israel in her prosperity, which is an apt description of the spoiled-brat-fat-cat generation known as the Baby Boomers, the generation that coincides with the final generation of the fig tree that was planted on May 15, 1948. It is that generation Christ referred to in Matthew 24 and Mark 13 that would not pass away before Messiah returns (Matthew 24:34). For more on the Fig Tree read "The Parable of the Fig Tree" located here on this web site.Deut. 32:15
But Jeshurun waxed fat, and kicked: thou art waxen fat, thou art grown thick, thou art covered with fatness; then he forsook God which made him, and lightly esteemed the Rock of his salvation.
The point is that one can be financially wealthy and increased with material goods while at the same time be spiritually impoverished and destitute! Take those of the church of Laodicea in these last days for example, those whom Paul was greatly concerned about in Colossians 2.
Jesus Christ, the Living Word of God, is the faithful and true witness!Rev. 3:14-19
And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;
Too many of our brothers and sisters are so busy with the riches and things of this world that they just don't have the time, they say (meaning that they really don't care enough) to study God's Word, i.e. to hear His voice! Well, our Father has a plan to get their attention and soon they will care... albeit too late for some to receive the blessings of the first resurrection (Rev. 20:6)! I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
THAT's part of the plan (see verse 19 below)! Again, God loves His children dearly and because He does He WILL chastise them (Heb. 12:6) and "spue them out His mouth"! So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
Many of our people have become blinded by peace and prosperity and "see" themselves as being in pretty good shape (confident, the careless woman of Isa. 32:9). After all, their preachers and ministers have told them all they need to do is believe that Jesus Christ is Lord (say "Jesus is Lord") and they are saved. But don't you know that even the devils believe that (see James 2:9)! Consider the analogy for example that everyone believes the President of the United States is whoever he happens to be at the time but not everyone believes in him, i.e. holds to his policies or ideologies! Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing;
The point is, that if you claim to "know the Lord" but are Biblically illiterate and do not study His Word to get to know Him, though you may go to church and do wonderfully good things, the fact is you are deceiving yourself indeed. And the irony of it all is that those who are deceived do not believe that they are deceived for that is the very nature of deception... i.e. not knowing that you are! Oh, you may find out later that you have been or had been deceived, but if you now are deceived you cannot possibly know it... else you wouldn't be! Have you ever heard someone say, "Hey, did you know that I am deceived?" Have you EVER heard a preacher or minister say "I am a false teacher?" Well, enough said! The remainder of verse 17 reveals the self delusion in that our people DO NOT KNOW of the wretched spiritual condition they are in! The good news is... IF they become willing to hear His Voice He will tell them what they can do about it in verse 18 below!
Jesus Christ said in John 5:24 "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on Him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life." Again, this doesn't say that you must just believe that Jesus is Lord! It says you must believe on Him that sent me, believe the written Word of God! Dear ones, you have to "know Him", know His Word, in order to believe Him!.... and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
Here is the advice, the wise counsel, given directly from the Lord, from His mouth, to those "careless women", those self-confident-have-need-of-nothing Christians in our society today!
The only true wealth there is, is that precious spiritual richness (gold) that can be found in the Word of God (Matthew 13:44-45). Of course when you seek gold make sure it has been tried, tested, as in assayed by fire (His Spirit of truth, His Word - 1 Jn. 4:1) to determine if it is the genuine thing... else you may end up with nabal gold... fool's gold! I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
Nevertheless, whether you heed His wise counsel and turn to Him now or not, He still loves you very much and because He loves you, He will get your attention when you end up (spiritually) naked and ashamed at His coming! So you can either "take heed" and humble yourself now, willingly... or you may end up being humbled the hard way. That is not a threat. That's just the way it is!
That was a rather lengthy expose of Isaiah 32:9, but if one does not understand that verse, that call from our Father to His children to "rise up" from the pitiful spiritual state they are in and begin to "hear His voice", then he or she remains "asleep" and still has need to be awakened from the "stupor", from that "spirit of slumber" spoken of by Paul in Romans chapter 11! As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
Let us now return to Isaiah 32 where we left off with the call to "hear" and "give ear" to the voice of the LORD!
Many of our brothers and sisters, even the multitude of them, are headed for, nay are already in, "trouble"... though they think themselves to be in good shape! They "think" that they "stand" when in fact they have not taken heed to the ensamples that are written and therefore they are in grave danger of "falling" before the false messiah in the great apostasy. Please understand that we are not judging them nor condemning them. We are simply declaring the admonition of our Father to His children whom He dearly loves. 1 Cor. 10:11 "Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.  Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall."Isaiah 32:10
Many days and years shall ye be troubled, ye careless women: for the vintage shall fail, the gathering shall not come.
For example: Instead of "taking heed" to that which is written, many of our beloved brothers and sisters are counting on being "raptured" out of here before the great tribulation starts, i.e. when Satan is cast out of heaven and comes to this earth and stands in the temple claiming to be God. They truly expect that they will be part of the harvest of the firstfruits... yet they have done no planting of righteousness and as Isa. 32:10 declares, "the vintage shall fail" and the "gathering (harvesting back to Christ) shall not come".
Here is what happens to those who have formally accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and saviour, i.e. went forward during an invitation in a evangelical church meeting, and now believe they are saved and say they believe, but do not have any desire to study His Word and "truly know" Jesus Christ, the Living Word of God; therefore, they will worship Satan, believing he is God, as he will claim to be, and has come to rapture them out of here. After five months of this nonsense, when Jesus does actually return He has already told us in Matthew 7:21-23 what He will say to them:
Our professing Christian brothers are a compassionate people and they do many wonderful charitable things in the name of Christianity... which is not of itself a bad thing. The problem is that they have forsaken their Father (Deut. 32:15) by ignoring His Word and they have become filled with the leaven (doctrines) of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees (Mat. 16:11)!Matthew 7:21-23
Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
Christ never got to know them because they never spent anytime with Him. He rarely, if ever, saw them come through the door, as in open the book! John 10:9 "I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture." "Rise up" dear ones, elevate your mind to the spiritual level, and go through the open door and hear the voice of the trumpet, the very Voice of the Lord! When you do... you will be in His presence and you will get to know each other. And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
Do you get the picture?Rev. 4:1-2
After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.  And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.
Tremble indeed... and stand in awe of the One who has all power in both heaven and earth (Mat. 28:18)! Just what does it take to shake some sense into the thick skulls of our people? They soon had better start concerning themselves with that which is important, with the true wealth and richness, and begin to buy that gold tried in fire, else they shall surely stumble and fall in the great apostasy and be swept away by the spiritual flood of lies spued forthbythe false messiah.Isaiah 32:11
Tremble, ye women that are at ease; be troubled, ye careless ones: strip you, and make you bare, and gird sackcloth upon your loins.
Dear ones, it is high time to shuck the old cob and humble yourself before the Lord, for the hour is late and the "sorrows (odin, i.e. labor pangs)" of Matthew 24:8 and Mark 13:8 that bring about the birth of a new age are now going to increase with intensity and frequency. To wit, not so long ago we had the greatest earthquake on this planet in "40" years, a tremendous shaking that measured "9.0" on the Richter Scale, and as a result of that great contraction under "the sea", the "water broke" forth and the tsunamis (tsu = habor, nami = waves) roared. A word to the wise!
If we were to title this 32nd chapter of Isaiah it would be "Yahveh's Righteous King" for as it is written in the first verse, "Behold, a king shall reign in righteousness, and princes shall rule in judgment (Isa. 32:1)." That is in fact the good news of the kingdom of God, the good news that the King of kings and Lord of lords shall return with His saints to establish truth and justice in all the earth following the shortened reign of Satan and the spiritual desolation left in his wake.
Remember in the first part of this chapter we learned that many of our people are "careless", meaning they are self-confident of their spiritual condition, as in they think are in good standing with the Lord. The reality is however that most of them are sorely blinded (Rom. 11) as to the reality of their spiritual nakedness. Many "buy into" the fool's gold of liberalism that has pervaded (leavened) Christianity and thus are taken in by the unrighteousness of vile persons, even the "churls" and the "misers". Therefore our Father has given them a "call" to turn from their "careless" ways and humble themselves before Him and begin to listen to Him... to "hear His Voice". This He does because He loves all of His children and it is not His will "that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance 2 Peter 3:9." In other words, He wants His people to "wake up" and "wise up" and come out of Babylon (confusion) and turn from of their idolatrous ways in order that they might receive His promised blessings instead of being on the receiving end of the plagues He pours out upon that old harlot. Have you heard His voice from heaven? Here it is... listen carefully:
Unfortunately far too many of our Christian brothers and sinters are not going to hear and take heed to what our Father has to say and as a result they are going to be sorely deceived by the false messiah when he comes at the sound of the 6th Trump. So unless they "come out of Babylon" before Jesus Christ returns at the sound of the 7th Trump, they will not be found among the firstfruits of the harvest, which simply means they will not take part in the first resurrection to eternal life when He returns.Rev. 18:4
And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
Note:They can still receive "eternal life" but it can not happen until after the Millennium at the "Great White Throne of Judgment".
The hour is late dear ones and as we read earlier, it is now time. To Day, to shuck the old cob and humble yourself before the Lord and begin to take some time to concern yourself with that which is most important, the true wealth and richness of His Word, and begin to buy that gold tried in fire... lest "the shame of your nakedness" appears at His coming (Rev. 3:18). "He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches (Rev. 3:22)".
Let us now continue in Isaiah 32 where we next read of the lamenting of the "careless" women whose "vintage shall fail" and whose "gathering shall not come" (Isaiah 32:10).
It is going to be a sad day at harvest time for many as "they shall lament for the teats", which is the same figure of speech as "they shall beat upon their breasts in mourning". In other words, there shall be lamentation, weeping, and mourning at harvest time when those many who were expecting fruit, expecting even to be among the firstfruits, discover they didn't make it! Again, it is because there was no planting of righteousness that they became unfruitful! And in that day of His appearing they shall tremble indeed when they discover the reality of their spiritual adultery and their whoring after the false messiah.Isaiah 32:12
They shall lament for the teats, for the pleasant fields, for the fruitful vine.
It is the spurious messiah, Satan, who appears in the joyous city (Jerusalem)... and stands in the holy place where he ought not (Mark 13:14) and claims to be God (2 Thes. 2:4) who he definitely is NOT. This abominable one will surely make spiritually desolate the fruitful place and there will be a massive "crop failure" indeed! In fact, and largely because the women is "careless", we are already fast becoming overgrown with the "thorns and briers" that choke out the precious "seeds of truth". Upon the land of my people shall come up thorns and briers; yea, upon all the houses of joy in the joyous city:
So keep plowing and laboring in the vineyard. That means stay in your Father's Word and "listen to Him" by holding fast to that which is written... lest ye also become unfruitful.Matthew 13:22
He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.
Our people have indeed "forsaken" their true protection, the Mighty Fortress of their God (Ps. 18:2) and the Rock of their salvation, even Jesus Christ the Living Word of God! (Deut. 32:18 "Of the Rock that begat thee thou art unmindful, and hast forgotten God that formed thee.") And so it is that the protected "palaces" (citadels) and the "forts and towers", even Ophel where the watchmen should have been watching for the false messiah and warning the people, have been neglected and left unguarded and have thus become the home of the Nethinim. A word to the wise.Isaiah 32:14
Because the palaces shall be forsaken [neglected]; the multitude of the city shall be left; the forts and towers shall be for dens for ever, a joy of wild asses, a pasture of flocks;
Nevertheless, the good news is that the fruitful field shall not remain a wilderness, a desert place, forever... only until Jesus Christ returns to pour out His spirit of truth from on high! It is written and so shall it come to pass exactly as it is written. For that reason, you can already "count the fruitful field for a forest"!
Again, this good news speaks ultimately of the return of Christ when "The Righteousness of Yahveh", His Truth and Justice, shall take hold in the joyous city (Jerusalem) and prevail from here to eternity. However, this good news of the pouring out of His spirit is also for RIGHT NOW, To Day, if you will heed His call and harden not your heart and begin to hear His voice. Then His blessings will begin to flow and you will have peace of mind and joy that lasts from NOW until forever. Until the spirit be poured upon us from on high, and the wilderness be a fruitful field, and the fruitful field be counted for a forest.
You "see", it is written in the great book of Joel and quoted by Peter on Pentecost Day in the 2nd chapter of Acts, that in the last days, God would pour His spirit (of truth) out on His servants and on His handmaidens... and they would see (understand) visions, the visions of the prophets, and they would prophesy (teach) their brothers and sisters what those prophets saw concerning these last days.
Do you have a desire to love and serve Him, to be one of His servants or handmaidens? Then perhaps you have a purpose and a destiny to be among these sons and daughters who are also the brothers and sisters of the churches of Smyrna and Philadelphia in Rev. 2 and Rev. 3. After all and when you think about it, you are reading a Bible study, aren't you? That's something most people do not do very often... even Christians. So take heed to "the call to hear" and "the call to tremble" in this wondrous 32nd chapter of Isaiah and you will become blessed and fruitful indeed!Acts 2:17-18
And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:  And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:
God's true and abiding servants in these last days are the ones He sent to serve Him, to declare His Righteousness (Truth) and His Judgment (Justice) unto this froward generation (Ps. 22:30-31). And so they do just that while humbly ascribing all greatness unto Him, the King of the just, and not unto themselves! Remember we read this in Deut. 32, the Song of Moses, earlier.Isaiah 32:16
Then judgment shall dwell in the wilderness, and righteousness remain in the fruitful field.
*Note to the "careless woman"... who unless she "comes out of Babylon (confusion)", shall be among those daughters of Jerusalem (professing Christians) weeping and wailing for themselves at the coming of the true Bridegroom because she is already spiritually impregnated (with child)... meaning she had been spiritually seduced by the "other Jesus (2 Cor. 11:2-4)", the false messiah, instead of remaining a chaste virgin (spiritually) unto the coming of her true Husband:Deut. 32:3-4
Because I will publish the name of the LORD: ascribe ye greatness unto our God.  He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is He.
The prophet Amos, whose name in Hebrew means "burden", draws a comparison of the religious practice of just going to church and singing praises and performing rituals verses the worshipping of God in truth and in spirit whereby the "judgment" and "righteousness" of Isaiah 32:16 is produced. Here it is:
Just like Isaiah said in verse 12 above: "They shall lament for the teats, for the pleasant fields, for the fruitful vine (Isaiah 32:12)."Amos 5:16-27
Therefore the LORD, the God of hosts, the Lord, saith thus; Wailing shall be in all streets; and they shall say in all the highways, Alas! alas! and they shall call the husbandman to mourning, and such as are skilful of lamentation to wailing.
Many church-going Christians are expecting to receive a crown and reward at the coming of the Lord... but as we've already documented, many who say "Lord, Lord", "Praise the Lord", will hear Christ say "...I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity (Matthew 7:23)." You "see", they were religious church-goers indeed, and did many wonderful things in the name of Christianity, but they did not do the will of their Father, i.e. hear His Voice! (Matthew 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.) So it will not be a happy day for them when the Day of the LORD comes. Of course that doesn't mean that God doesn't love them and that doesn't mean they are going to hell. It does mean that they will not be among the firstfruits at His coming and they will have to go through the Millennium and appear at the Great White Throne Judgment. On the other hand, those servants and handmaidens who are His at His coming shall rule and reign with Him and will not be subject to appearing at the Great White Throne Judgment. That is because they will already have been granted eternal life and thus they are not in danger of being judged to the second death. (Rev. 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.") And in all vineyards shall be wailing: for I will pass through thee, saith the LORD.
 Woe unto you that desire the day of the LORD! to what end is it for you? the day of the LORD is darkness, and not light.
Now listen carefully to what your Father thinks about religious activities taking place while liberalism and idolatry are allowed to permeate the land! As if a man did flee from a lion, and a bear met him; or went into the house, and leaned his hand on the wall, and a serpent bit him.
 Shall not the day of the LORD be darkness, and not light? even very dark, and no brightness in it?
To "smell" means to smell the incense which is symbolic of prayers. In other words, He is not going to answer your prayers. I hate, I despise your feast days, and I will not smell in your solemn assemblies.
Read again in Matthew 7:21-23 where He is true to this verse and He does NOT accept their religious sacrifices. Though ye offer me burnt offerings and your meat offerings, I will not accept them: neither will I regard the peace offerings of your fat beasts.
Stop playing church and "come of Babylon" which is to say "religious confusion" and begin to do His will and declare His righteousness! Take thou away from me the noise of thy songs; for I will not hear the melody of thy viols.
This is what our Father wants... Liberty and Justice for ALL! And ONLY by adhering to the truth of our Father's Word, that Word even from which our US Constitution was derived, can this be accomplished. But let judgment run down as waters, and righteousness as a mighty stream.
When truth and justice flow throughout the land like mighty rivers, then and only then will there be true peace and serenity and assurance for ever.Isaiah 32:17
And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance for ever.
Once again the good news is that when "The Righteousness of Yahveh", the King of king and Lord of lords, returns to this earth at the sound of the 7th Trump, this shall become reality in all the earth... and the "waters" shall be still and the waves shall not roar and there will be no famine but rather plenty of green pasture (His Word) for all. Until then there will be no true peace and assurance, except for those who now humble themselves and hear and follow the true voice of the Shepherd. Yes, even though they are still in the flesh and walk through this valley of the shadow* of death, they have nothing to fear and are not anxious because the truth of His Word and knowing that He has all power and authority and therefore is in complete control, comforts them. You "see", they already rest in Him so no matter how strong the tempests blow or the waves roar, the waters are still beside them and they have true peace of mind. And my people shall dwell in a peaceable habitation, and in sure dwellings, and in quiet resting places;
* It is written in Heb. 9:27 that before judgment comes, even before Christ comes to the Valley of Jeho-shaphat (Yahveh Judges) (see Joel 3), that it is appointed unto men once to die. That is the death of the flesh which the wise students of God's Word know is only a shadow death, a type of the real death (the second death) which is the death of the soul in the lake of fire at the end of the Millennium. That is why Christ tells us in Matthew 10:28 "...to fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear (revere) Him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell."Psalm 23:1-6
A Psalm of David.
The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.  He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.  He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.  Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.  Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.  Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.
Note: The next verse is considered by many scholars to be somewhat out of place and should follow verse 14. Though that may well be true and even most likely, I believe it serves well right here to emphasize the great contrast between the mighty wrath of God upon Babylon the Great and that great city, even Jerusalem, and the peace and serenity He will usher in. In other words, our Father has a great purpose in pouring out His wrath upon the ungodly, which is the same purpose He had in pouring out the plagues upon Egypt and reducing Sodom and Gomorrah to a pile of rubble and ashes with hail and fire and brimstone. It is so that they shall all come to KNOW that He alone, the great I AM that I AM, is God and there is none other!
God loves all of His children and He is completely fair to each and every one of them for as it is written in Romans 2:11 "...there is no respect of persons with God." That means if you do not worship God in truth and in spirit (Jn. 4:23) and sow seeds of righteousness by upholding truth and justice for all according His laws and His statutes and His commands, then when the "vintage fails" and there is no fruit, you can fully expect to be on the receiving end of His "Woe!" However, if you sow beside the living waters, even Jesus Christ, and plow the field to produce bountiful fruit for the kingdom of God, then "blessed" and "happy" are you indeed!Isaiah 32:19
When it shall hail, coming down on the forest; and the city shall be low in a low place.
To "send forth thither the feet of the ox and the ass" is the same figure of speech we read in Isaiah 30:24 that illustrates how PURE the feeding of the Word of God truly is and shall be... so pure in fact that during the Millennium everyone shall eat the winnowed grain, which is to say the heart of grain, as in the pure Bread of Life. So shall it be in that day that His truth and justice shall flow like mighty rivers from beneath His throne in Jerusalem throughout the whole world and unto all nations (mountains, i.e. civilly) and places of worship (high hills, i.e. ecclesiastically). Blessed are ye that sow beside all [living] waters, that send forth thither the feet of the ox and the ass.
Note: Since death in the flesh is only a shadow of the real death of the soul; after this 1000 years of everyone who did not take part in the first resurrection to eternal life eating the winnowed grain, Satan is released for a short time to tempt them. Those and have now learned the difference between what is holy (clean) and what is profane (unclean) and pass this test will yet be saved from the eternal death of their soul and receive eternal life (the second resurrection) at the great white throne of judgment.
What a wonderful future we have to look forward to and how blessed we are indeed to have His Word that gives us hope and comfort and peace of mind during the raging turmoil and birth pangs that culminate the end of this flesh age!
Thank you Father!
To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits;
to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
