Pamphlet 1671Nahum kc 6-3

"Woe" is not good news to hear from our Father God!

Nahum 3:1
Woe to the bloody city! it is all full of lies and robbery; the prey departeth not;

"Woe" is not good news to hear from our Father and it will be at the third "Woe" Trump (Rev. 8:13), which is the 7th Trump, that the "day of vengeance" comes and the judgment of the great whore takes place, and all those who now mourn, who now lament the wickedness of the great whore, shall be comforted in seeing His justice executed upon her!

Notice that bloody city is full of "lies" and "robbery" (call it Sodom and Egypt) and it has a stranglehold on its prey who are the "peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues" she sits on! And she will NOT EVER willingly release her captives! WOE to her when Christ returns to this earth for as it is written, He shall free His people and DESTROY the beast!

[2] The noise of a whip, and the noise of the rattling of the wheels, and of the pransing horses, and of the jumping chariots.
At the time of that "Woe" the "locust army" of Rev. 9 which "were like unto horses prepared unto battle" shall be present and those "chariots" we discussed a few lessons back... remember... which go "lightning fast"... will make much noise!
[3] The horseman lifteth up both the bright sword and the glittering spear: and there is a multitude of slain, and a great number of carcases; and there is none end of their corpses; they stumble upon their corpses:
This describes the spiritual warfare that shall be taking place before that "day of vengeance" comes upon them! The horsemen lift up "both the bright sword and the glittering spear" and many shall be spiritually slain, so many that they shall "stumble upon their corpses", which is a figure of speech giving us a "picture" in our mind's eye of the vast multitudes spiritually "slain by the sword". God's elect who have the Gospel Armor (Eph. 6) on and in place shall not be among those spiritually slain!
[4] Because of the multitude of the whoredoms of the wellfavoured harlot, the mistress of witchcrafts, that selleth nations through her whoredoms, and families through her witchcrafts.
The "great whore", "the mother of harlots", casts her evil spells upon the world which means she uses her witchcrafts, i.e. her sorceries and her idolatries, and false religion and false doctrines, mis-education, economics, etc., to bring about the New World Order and Globalization. Also, if you take the time to look up the words "nations" and "families" you will find they mean "gentiles" and "family tribes" respectively, which are like the "nations" and "kingdoms" in Matthew 24 and Mark 13 which Jesus Christ said would rise together in the market place, i.e. Globalize. The fact is, and what we learn here from Nahum, is that the "nations" are actually bought and sold into slavery. You see, the word "selleth" in Hebrew is "makar" which means to "sell as merchandise" or "sell into slavery" or as a "daughter 'sold' in marriage" which is to be made into an harlot!

Got the picture? Here then is what the "LORD of hosts", Jesus Christ who leads the army of His saints when He returns, has to say to "the great whore who sits upon many waters":

Nahum 3:5
Behold, I am against thee, saith the LORD of hosts; and I will discover thy skirts upon thy face, and I will shew the nations thy nakedness, and the kingdoms thy shame.
The figure of speech used in this verse simply says that He will "lift up her skirt" and she will be exposed (discovered) as NAKED and her SHAME of being a great WHORE shall be fully REVEALED to... and do not miss this... both the NATIONS and the KINGDOMS who will have (and even have now) all "joined together" and jumped into her "queen size" bed and partaken of the abundance of her delicacies.

It is just too bad that our people cannot "See" happening right before their eyes the "vision" John saw of the "Beast" of Rev. 13:1 as it "rose-up" from the sea (peoples and nations and tongues) and what a "great whore" the sweet sounding New World Order and its interwoven basket of thorns (vs. 1:10), those systems of Politics, Education, Economics and Religion, really is!

Thank God for His Word and the knowledge of His truth! May God help our brothers and sisters to SEE!

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.
