Chapter 18

Prophecy concerning a Woe to a land which is beyond the rivers of Ethiopia (The United States) "The Stone Kingdom"

What an exciting time in which to live? Did you know that the majority of the prophecies contained in the Word of God were written for these last days, the days of the generation of the fig tree which began on May 15, 1948. That means that the Baby Boomer generation is the generation Jesus Christ said would not pass away until all the things He foretold us of in Matthew 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21 came to pass (Mat. 24:34).

That means that this is also the time the angel spoke of in Daniel 12:9 when he told Daniel that his words were to be closed up and sealed until the "time of the end" when what he wrote would finally be understood... by the wise!

Daniel 12:9-10
And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.

[10] Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.

The wise in this final generation are those who seek and gain wisdom and knowledge from the source of all wisdom and the foundation of all knowledge...the wonderful Word of God. To wit, one of the things that separates the wise from the foolish is that the wise, those sons and daughters of Acts chapter 2 who are the brothers and sisters of the churches of Philadelphia and Smyrna, have the "Key of David" spoken of in Rev. 3:7. That "Key" unlocks the true lineage of Jesus Christ through Judah while at the same exposing the fraudulent claim to the lineage of Judah by those who go around calling themselves "God's chosen people", but who are neither of Judah nor of Abraham but rather are "liars and are of the synagogue of Satan". Those are Christ's words found in Rev. 2:9 and 3:9 referring to the kenites, the sons of Cain, who have convinced the majority of Christianity, the majority of Christians, that they (Christians) are gentiles, when in fact many are not! Yes, many untold millions of those living in the US and Canada and Great Britain are indeed of the true House of Israel and you know what else? It only takes but a little research to document it!
That's right! You can easily trace the history of the migrations of the so-called "Lost 10 Tribes of the House of Israel", who following their Assyrian captivity went up over the Caucasus Mountains (hence they are called Caucasians) and became known as Cimmerians and Scythians and Celts and Saxons! Do you know what the word "Saxons" means? It means just that, "Saac's sons", i.e. Isaac's sons! Those sons of Isaac, even Jacob's (Israel's) sons, settled in western Europe and in the British Isles and many later came to this great nation, America... the melting pot of the 13 tribes of the House of Israel.

You will find in Genesis 48 that the birthright blessings of national wealth and prominence that was promised to father Abraham and confirmed in Isaac and Jacob, was split between the two sons of Joseph, Ephraim and Manasseh, effectually making Manasseh, the younger son whose name means "forgetful", the 13th tribe. Ever wondered why the number "13" is stamped all over the founding of this nation?

There is no need to wonder, just do a little historical homework. And how fitting is the name Manasseh (forgetful) for a people who have forgotten their heritage because they have "forsaken" their Father's Word? And so it is that we as a people have become a nation of spiritual widows who are without a true husband (Christ) and orphans who have lost our way back home. But though we may have lost our identity as the true House of Israel, our Father certainly has not lost sight of His children and neither have those who are "wise" in this final generation.

Does it make sense to you that the United States of America, the greatest superpower in the history of the world, would be left out of endtime Biblical prophecy? Of course not!

We are going to take a short side trip here to give you
Publisher John Rhine's thoughts about
"The Stone Kingdom":

2 Samuel 7:10  Moreover I will appoint a place for my people Israel, and will plant them, that they may dwell in a place of their own, and move no more; neither shall the children of wickedness afflict them any more, as formerly,

This verse 2 Sam. 7:10 is one of the more truth revealing verses in the whole Bible.

Why so you ask?

Read it again very carefully:

"...I will appoint a place for my people Israel,.." (the lost tribes of Israel). see pamphlet #1064 and #1020 to learn what people God is talking about. We already know that the people who today call themselves God's chosen people aren't who they claim to be. see Rev. 2:9 & Rev. 3:9

"... appoint a place ..., ... and will plant them, that they may dwell in a place of their own, and move no more; ..."  God's certainly is not talking about that appointed place being Jerusalem, in the land of Judea, is he? No, because Jerusalem is where King David and the prophet Nathan were when the Lord told Nathan to give this message of to David. 2 Sam. 7:8-9. He says, "In the future I'll plant them in another place, a place to become their own forever."

We can learn more about this appointed place in Chapter 18 of the Book of Isaiah

Chapters 13 thru 27 of  the Book of Isaiah contain prophecies about many nations.  Isaiah is looking down the long corridor of time and recording the future of each nation. Babylon, Assyria, Philistia, Moab, Damascus(Syria), Edom, Arabia, Jerusalem, Tyre, Egypt, and others are mentioned by name.

But, there is a short chapter, Chapter 18, right there in the middle that prophecies about a unnamed land beyond the rivers of Ethiopia. We believe this to be a vision of the land of the United States of America, not named as such only because it was completely unknown in the 8th. century B.C.,  playing a very big part in the providence of God among the nations of the world in these end times.

Editors note: In 1857 the Rev. F. E. Pitts of Nashville, Tennessee, did recognize the United States as being in Bible prophecy when in an address to congress he spoke the following words: "There are many passages in Scripture which are universally admitted, by the very learned and judicious, to foretell the rise of a great nationality in the latter times.  these predictions cannot, by any reasonable construction, be applied to the rise of such nationality in the land of Judea; but are most wonderfully descriptive of this United States of America, and of no other country under heaven."

Rev. Pitts was referring to Chapter 18 of the Book of Isaiah.

It appears God's prophet, Isaiah, was looking across the Atlantic ocean seeing glorious things.

Isaiah 18:1
Woe to the land shadowing with wings, which is beyond the rivers of Ethiopia:

Don't be mislead by the word translated "Woe" to start this verse.  The word "Woe" used here is the same Hebrew word translated "Ho" In Isaiah 55:1. "Ho, everyone that thirsteth, ....  H1945 дей ho?y hoh'ee A prolonged form of H1930 (akin to H188); oh!: - ah, alas, ho, O, woe. Having established that, in your mind's eye, let's examine the verse.

One identification of this land is "... beyond the rivers of Ethiopia:"If you stand in Jerusalem and look beyond, or west of, the White and Blue Nile rivers of Ethiopia you will see no great country until you come to the east coast of the United States.

The other identification in the first verse is "... shadowing with wings, ...".  Again, in your mind's eye, could this be referring to North and South America loosely resembling the expanded wings of a great eagle? or, could it suggest a country "shadowed" or concealed until God was ready for its discovery? or, could it be foretelling "the spread eagle", the symbol of Americanism.

Note: While Mexico, Germany, and Russia all have eagles in their nation emblems, no other country except the United States has the eagle on its emblem with spread wings; therefore "the land of outstretched wings."

Isaiah 18:2
That sendeth ambassadors by the sea, even in vessels of bulrushes upon the waters, saying, Go, ye swift messengers, to a nation scattered and peeled, to a people terrible from their beginning hitherto; a nation meted out and trodden down, whose land the rivers have spoiled!

"...ambassadors by the sea, ..." Being located across the Atlantic from Europe, Asia, Australia and Africa; American ambassadors for 150 years traveled by sea when on government business. Even to South America, Mexico, and Canada they traveled by water.

"...vessels of bulrushes..." In your mind's eye see steam ships (water-drinking vessels), but in technical language of 2800 years ago, "vessels of bulrushes".  Vessels that drink water like bulrushes, cattails, or papyrus.

"...Go, ye swift messengers, to a nation scattered and peeled, to a people terrible from their beginning..."

"scattered" H4900 ощ?к ma?shak maw-shak' A primitive root; to draw, used in a great variety of applications (including to sow, to sound, to prolong, to develop, to march, to remove, to delay, to be tall, etc.): - draw (along, out), continue, defer, extend, forbear, X give, handle, make (pro-, sound) long, X sow, scatter, stretch out.

"peeled"  If as peeled in Ezekiel 29:18 H4803 оши ma?rat? maw-rat' A primitive root; to polish; by implication to make bald (the head), to gall (the shoulder); also, to sharpen: - bright, furbish, (have his) hair (be) fallen off, peeled, pluck off (hair.)

Is Isaiah seeing a vision of a land possessed by men who were tall like trees with the bark peeled off. i.e.  "tall and clean-shaven people"

"...terrible from their beginning hitherto..."  is this a true description of the fierce and warlike Indian tribe found in the new world?
Also, America has never been defeated in defense of her own lands or in the freedom of the seas. (a pretty terrible I would say)
The word, "hitherto" in the prophecy also suggests that America will never be conquered from without, throughout the future ages.

"...a nation meted out and trodden down,..."

meted H6957 че    че qav  qa?v kav, kawv From H6960 (compare H6961); a cord (as connecting), especially for measuring; figuratively a rule; also a rim, a musical string or accord: - line. Compare H6978.

trodden downH4001 обе?сд mebu?sa?h meb-oo-saw' From H947; a trampling: - treading (trodden) down (under foot).

Put together this could translate "measured out under the treading" that is a land measures out by lines and feet.  This is a description of how the United States and only the United States is surveyed and divided into literal checkerboard sections. Surveyed by the North Star; a base line run east to west, and all land marked up into mile squares. These sections then sub-divided into quarter sections of half mile squares.  No other nation was so "meted" out into blocks before. All the other countries of the earth have surveyed and marked their land by local boundaries.

"...whose land the rivers have spoiled!"

"spoiled" H958 б?жа ba?za?' baw-zaw' A primitive root; probably to cleave: - spoil. This is a term used to describe an animal killed, hung up and quartered. The United States is divided in half by the Mississippi River. The halves are again divided east to west from the Pacific Ocean to the Mississippi by the Columbia River to the Snake River to the Missouri River in the west. and the from the Atlantic Ocean by the Ohio River to the Monongahela River to the Younghiogheny River which becomes the Castlemen River to the Potomac River and runs into the Bay and unto the Atlantic dividing the eastern half into two parts. Thus the whole land is "quartered by rivers". No other land on earth is divided by rivers this way into four sections: northeast, northwest, southeast, and southwest.

Isaiah 18:3
All ye inhabitants of the world, and dwellers on the earth, see ye, when He lifteth up an ensign on the mountains; and when He bloweth a trumpet, hear ye.

Note the words "ensign" and "trumpet" which are symbols of war.  Isaiah saw America lift up an ensign on the mountain, meaning nation, and blow the trumpet, meaning declaration of war.  Twice when America has declared war, most nations of the world "took heed" and became involved.

Isaiah 18:4
For so the LORD said unto me, I will take my rest, and I will consider in my dwelling place like a clear heat upon herbs, and like a cloud of dew in the heat of harvest.

Isaiah 18:5
For afore the harvest, when the bud is perfect, and the sour grape is ripening in the flower, he shall both cut off the sprigs with pruninghooks, and take away and cut down the branches.

Isaiah 18:6
They shall be left together unto the fowls of the mountains, and to the beasts of the earth: and the fowls shall summer upon them, and all the beasts of the earth shall winter upon them.

Although hard for a Westerner to understand, verses 4-6 being highly figurative and Eastern, it is possible that Isaiah is talking about a nation blessed with fertile soil, sunshine and showers, clouds of dew, providing favorable conditions for cultivation and a bountiful harvest; a nation possessing natural resources favorable for national productivity.

The branches of ill omen, or "sprigs"  will spring up, of verse five may indicate a time of cleansing for our nation as Matthew tells us about in Matt. 13:39-41.

Isaiah 18:7
In that time shall the present be brought unto the LORD of hosts of a people scattered and peeled, and from a people terrible from their beginning hitherto; a nation meted out and trodden under foot, whose land the rivers have spoiled, to the place of the name of the LORD of hosts, the mount Zion.

This verse summarizes this eighteenth chapter and indicates this is a Christian land: "...the place of the name ... of mount Zion."

Chapter 11 acknowledges that God kept an eye on our forefathers, according to His covenant: Isaiah 11:11 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea.
Isa 11:12  And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.

Ancient Israel was but one family, settled in a very small and limited territory,  Israel Restored, however, would be gathered from all the nations and languages where they had settled and would be set up in a vastly larger territory.  They would have the headship of the world in the work of reformation, in establishing civil and religious liberty, in overthrowing all despotism, and proclaiming the message of Jesus Christ, the Light of the World.

Ancient Israel furnished the world with the Bible and with the only plan of salvation.  Israel Restored will show all people in all nations its heavenly teachings by which man will be freed the bondage of sin, superstition, and slavery.  Israel will show the world man's highest status attainable under the gospel of Jesus Christ, that form of government best suited for human development and religious prosperity.

 "The Stone Kingdom" and Publisher John Rhine's comments.

Nebuchadnezzar's dream about the four great world empires, (1st. Babylonian, 2nd. Medio-Persiain, 3rd. Grecian and 4th. Roman) all of which Daniel prophesied would fall, (they have, they are history) followed by a fifth world empire "The Stone Kingdom" (still future, but very near)

Daniel 2:25 Then Arioch brought in Daniel before the king in haste and said thus unto him, I have found a man of the captives of Judah, that will make known unto the king the interpretation. [26] The king answered and said to Daniel, whose name was Belteshazzar, Art thou able to make known unto me the dream which I have seen, and the interpretation thereof? [27] Daniel answered in the presence of the king, and said, The secret which the king hath demanded cannot the wise men, the astrologers, the magicians, the soothsayers, shew unto the king; [28] But there is a God in heaven that revealeth secrets, and maketh known to the king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days. Thy dream, and the visions of thy head upon thy bed, are these;[29] As for thee, O king, thy thoughts came into thy mind upon thy bed, what should come to pass hereafter: and He that revealeth secrets maketh known to thee what shall come to pass. [30] But as for me, this secret is not revealed to me for any wisdom that I have more than any living, but for their sakes that shall make known the interpretation to the king, and that thou mightest know the thoughts of thy heart. [31] Thou, O king, sawest, and behold a great image. This great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before thee; and the form thereof was terrible. Daniel 2:32 This image's head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly nd his thighs of brass,[33] His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay.[34] Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces.

Ok, with that background in mind, let's and pick it up in chapter 2 vs. 35 after Daniel told Nebuchadnezzar that he saw a stone cut out without hands smite the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and break them to pieces. That stone is Jesus Christ, the Rock of our salvation, the Stone of Israel as He is called in Gen. 49:24. He is the stone which the builders rejected and He shall now be the head stone of the corner over all the earth (Ps. 118:22)! Jesus Christ is the Rock, the only true foundation upon which you can stand. Don't put your trust in the beast and his system because the image that Nebuchadnezzar saw had a very weak foundation of iron mixed with clay and it's coming DOWN! Stand firmly upon the Rock and put your trust in Him.

Daniel 2:35 Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth. [36] This is the dream; and we will tell the interpretation thereof before the king. [37] Thou, O king, art a king of kings: for the God of heaven hath given thee a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory. Daniel 2:38 And wheresoever the children of men dwell, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the heaven hath he given into thine hand, and hath made thee ruler over them all. Thou art this head of gold. [39] And after thee shall arise another kingdom inferior to thee, and another third kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the earth. [40] And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise. [41] And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters' clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay. [42] And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken. [43] And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay. Daniel 2:44 And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever. Daniel 2:45 Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.

Sorry for the long side trip but I thought this information would be of interest to you. Yes, I believe the land of these United States is the location of the "God's Stone Kingdom". and Yes, I believe the Christian nations of the world are pretty much made up of descendants of the "True House of Israel",  from all twelve tribes. But, let's face it; the United States won't really be "God's Stone Kingdom" until Jesus Christ, our King, returns and we learn the difference between what is Holy and what is profane. Revelations 22:20 ...Surely, I come, quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

The reason we bring this to your attention is that one must know who and where the true House of Israel dwells today in order to understand prophecy! If you are among the multitudes who still think the House of Israel is that tiny nation who calls itself Israel, then you are deceived indeed. At best that nation is the House of Judah and then only in part, because the House of Judah is split between the good and bad figs! You "see", the tribe of Judah was infiltrated and even usurped by the sons of Cain, who are the bad figs of Jeremiah 24 and the tares of Matthew 13. Have you ever heard of the Khazars? Well if not, then for starters look them up in an older edition of the Encyclopedia Britannica or log unto (Live Link)to- Khazars  here on our web site..

Again, it is precisely because our people are Biblically illiterate and therefore do not have the "Key of David" to unlock the scriptures, that most Christians are clueless as to where America and Great Britain are spoken of in prophecy! Does it make sense to you that God would omit the greatest superpower in the history of the world from end time prophecy? Of course not... and He certainly did not!

So let us return to our study, to the 18th chapter of Isaiah, and let us continue with the "messages" that our Father has to the "messengers" of the nations of the world. Remember in that last verse of Isaiah 14, the question was asked "What shall one then answer the messengers of the nation?" The answer is that "the LORD hath founded Zion, and the poor of His people shall trust in it." And so it is in these last days, if you do not trust in the Zion that our Father has founded, if you do trust in the Zion founded by the false messiah, if you put your trust in the "beast system" of these last days (the New World Order), then you will not be among the firstfruits at harvest time when Jesus Christ returns at the sound of the 7th Trump!

Isaiah 18:1-7
Woe to the land shadowing with wings, which is beyond the rivers of Ethiopia:
Ho, alas, helloooo... to the land of whirring or rustling wings, or as the Septuagint and the NEB translate it, "the land of (sailing) ships" which lies beyond the rivers of Ethiopia (Cush).
Again, one must understand the migrations of the 10 so-called lost tribes of the House of Israel in order to understand who those people are who lie way beyond the rivers of Cush!
[2] That sendeth ambassadors by the sea, even in vessels of bulrushes upon the waters, saying, Go, ye swift messengers, to a nation scattered and peeled, to a people terrible from their beginning hitherto; a nation meted out and trodden down, whose land the rivers have spoiled!
And so it is that the nations of the land of Cush and even all the nations send their ambassadors, their messengers, to this greatest of all nations... to a nation of tall and smooth-faced people, those scattered tribes of the House of Israel. They are "meted out", meaning "to rule" and "trodden down", meaning a nation who "treads down"! A land whose rivers spoil, or divide, it from east to west, even from sea to shining sea!

The word "terrible" means "to stand in awe of" or even "to morally revere" as Dr. Strong has it. And this nation has been "awesome" from its beginning... a ruling nation, now the greatest superpower of all time. And this great nation which officially began on July 4, 1776, Also see "The Stone Kingdom", a Biblical benchmark indeed, was founded as a Christian nation by God fearing men who recognized who it is that is the Supreme Ruler of all nations, i.e. the King of kings and Lord and lords! And the nations of this world at the end of this flesh age are going to come to know that the great I AM THAT I AM ("Hayah Asher Hayah"), YHVH, is God and there is none other. 

There is only one Creator of the Universe... and He is the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, who sent His Son to pay the price on the cross that we might have eternal life! He is soon returning, following the reign of the false messiah, Satan, and then "every knee shall bow to name of Jesus Christ" for He shall establish Zion and rule all nations with a rod of iron. It is written and so shall it be!
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. [7] 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 is that there is One Ruler of ALL nations!
Rev. 12:5
And she (the woman, i.e. mother Israel) 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.
That is where Yahshua is at this time... sitting at the right hand of the Father. But again, He will soon return to this earth, not as a Lamb to be slain, but as the King of kings and Lord of lords to rule over all the earth with a rod of iron, which means He will rule with discipline to the laws and statutes of our Father's Word, which is righteousness! That is what the controversy is all about, isn't it? Who will be our ROCK? Will it be the "Rock of our Salvation", Jesus Christ, the Word of God, or will it be that "little rock", that abomination of desolation who wants to stand in the midst of our people and exalt himself and have you worship him and follow after his perverted crooked paths.

In tribute to our founding fathers, those Godly men who established this nation as one nation under God. Consider the following excerpts from George Washington's Thanksgiving Proclamation of 1789:

George Washington's 1789 Thanksgiving Proclamation

"WHEREAS it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favour; and Whereas both Houses of Congress have, by their joint committee, requested me "to recommend to the people of the United States a DAY OF PUBLICK THANKSGIVING and PRAYER, to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness:"

Sure doesn't sound like there was a separation of God and State back then, does it? Notice I did not say "Church and State". Of course our founding fathers wanted to avoid another "Church of England" but they certainly did never intend that God and His Word, our Rock, be removed from either our private or public places. In fact, the very reason public schools were started in the first place was to teach children how to read the Bible! Today in many of our public schools, children get chastised or suspended if they are caught reading the Bible in school! My how far we have wandered from truth and common sense.
...And also, that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech Him to pardon our national and other transgressions;-- to enable us all, whether in publick or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually; to render our National Government a blessing to all the people by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed; to protect and guide all sovereigns and nations (especially such as have shewn kindness unto us); and to bless them with good governments, peace, and concord; to promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and us; and, generally to grant unto all mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best.

GIVEN under my hand, at the city of New-York, the third day of October, in the year of our Lord, one thousand seven hundred and eighty-nine."

(signed) George Washington

And so it is that our founding fathers recognized that it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God... and soon they shall!
Isaiah 18:3
All ye inhabitants of the world, and dwellers on the earth, see ye, when He lifteth upan ensign on the mountains; and when He bloweth a trumpet, hear ye.
You had better look to Zion all ye nations, to the government established by His Christ through His faithful men! "See" and "Hear" all ye inhabitants of the earth. Did you get the message? Get it now... or get it later the hard way! Of course, this is not something new that we are reading in Isaiah for our Father declared long ago that He would proclaim the name of the LORD in these last days. You can read it in the Song of Moses which is the 32nd chapter of the great book of Deuteronomy, the song the overcomers of the "beast" in these last are singing in Rev. 15.
Deut. 32:1-6
Give ear, O ye heavens, and I will speak; and hear, O earth, the words of my mouth.

[2] 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:

[3] BecauseI will publish the name of the LORD: ascribe ye greatness unto our God.

It is written in Matthew 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21, that there shall be a proclamation to all the nations of the earth before Jesus Christ returns at the sound of the 7th Trump. That proclamation of the coming kingdom (the King and His dominion) shall be given by God's elect when they are delivered up. Mark 13:9-10 "But take heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to councils; and in the synagogues ye shall be beaten: and ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them. [10] And the gospel must first be published among all nations."
[4] 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.

[5] They have corrupted themselves, their spot is not the spot of his children: they are a perverse and crooked generation.

Our people have been led to walk down the wrong path (even in most of our so-called Christian churches by those who teach the iniquitous traditions) of men instead of teaching God's Word and holding fast to our Father's ways... "for all His ways are judgment (vs. 4)"!

You may recall we read this same thing, that our people have corrupted themselves, in the first chapter of Isaiah.
Isaiah 1:4
Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the LORD, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward.
Yes, the majority of our Christian brothers and sisters have "forsaken the LORD!" You cannot go around just mouthing the words "Lord, Lord, Praise the Lord" and "I Love Jesus" and, all the while, ignore studying His Word.     Because if you do not study the Written Word of God and keep His commands then you cannot claim to know the Living Word of God, Jesus Christ, and on top of that you show by your actions (or lack thereof) that you do not really love Him! You "see", if you did love the Lord you would get to know Him through His Word and keep His commands! Jesus said in John 14:15, "If ye love me, keep my commandments." One of those commands can be found in 2 Tim. 2:15 if you care to check it out!

Also, have you not read how many Christians will say to Christ when He returns "...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 (Matthew 7:22)?" Christ's response to them will be "And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity (vs. 23)."

The bottom line is that no matter if you go to church or not, if you do not seek to know Jesus Christ through His Word, then you are an unwise and foolish virgin indeed for you have forsaken the LORD!

Deut. 32:6
Do ye thus requite the LORD, O foolish people and unwise? is not he thy father that hath bought thee? hath He not made thee, and established thee?
Yes, He has made us and established us and paid the price for our sins and in return for all that He has done for us, we have forsaken Him!

Nevertheless, the message to all "ye inhabitants of the world and dwellers upon earth" is that they had better "see" the ensign that the LORD has lifted up and "hear" when He blows the trumpet! To wit, the USA is to be that ensign, that One Nation Under God who stands to protect freedom and liberty and justice for all.

Well, we may have fallen short of our ideals and our duty to God and country because we have strayed ever so far from the true Rock of our salvation and for that reason we shall be taken into the captivity of the New World Order in these last days. But let there be no doubt, even as we shall read in the last verse of this chapter, our Father shall yet establish Zion and as we read back in Isaiah 9:7: "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."

Isaiah 18:4
For so the LORD said unto me, I will take my rest, and I will consider in my dwelling place like a clear heat upon herbs, and like a cloud of dew in the heat of harvest.
Nothing goes unnoticed by our Father! In fact, it is written in Matthew 10:29 where Christ said:
Matthew 10:29
Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father.
That's right! Our Father notices when even the least little sparrow falls to the ground.
[30] But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.

[31] Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.

Think about what Christ is telling us here. If our Father is aware of the least of the birds, the little sparrows, falling to the earth, how much more do you think He is aware of what is happening in your life? You are His child and He loves you very much and He knows exactly what you are going through at this very moment. But you know what? He promised us in 1 Cor. 10:13 that we would not be subject to any trials or tribulations that are not common to man and furthermore He promises to provide a way of escape, a way for us to handle them. So if you have a lot of trials and tribulations in your life, remember that your Father is not only fully aware of them,  but He knows you can cut the mustard! Therefore all you need to do is stay firmly grounded in His Word and always trust in the Lord your God and He will deliver you... you have His Word on it!

Now, what the Lord is saying here in Isaiah 18:4 concerns these last days of the final generation which is the "time of the harvest". As Jesus Christ said in Matthew 24:34, it would be the generation of the fig tree, that generation known as the Baby Boomers, who would not pass away until all the things He foretold us of in Matthew 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21 became history instead of prophecy! And so Yahshua Messiah, Jesus Christ, will take His rest in His dwelling place at the right hand of the Father until the harvest is ripe. To that end, He is going to send the heat and the dew to bring this generation to maturity!

Isaiah 18:5
For afore the harvest, when the bud is perfect, and the sour grape is ripening in the flower, he shall both cut off the sprigs with pruninghooks, and take away and cut down the branches.
Hey, there is going to be some pruning in the old vineyard before God brings forth His firstfruits... before the harvest which Matthew 13:39 documents is the end of this flesh age. Matthew 13:39 "...the harvest is the end of the world (aion)." You can also document in Matthew 7:17-19 that if a tree does not bring forth good fruit for the harvest, the Lord will cut it down, for it is a worthless tree indeed!
Matthew 7:17-19
Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
You know who the original corrupt tree is, don't you? It is that old tree of the knowledge of good and evil from the beginning, even Satan himself, that low life serpent who is as corrupt as corrupt can be!    
There were two trees in the Garden of Eden:---One was "The Tree of Life" (Jesus Christ); His fruit will lead you to ETERNAL LIFE! and the other was "The Tree of the Knowledge of GOOD and EVIL" (Satan); his fruit leads to ETERNAL DEATH!, even though some of it is good. Satan returns to earth, claiming he is God, five months before Christ's return. God is allowing Satan five months on earth as a test for us, to see if we who claim to be Christians really know the difference between What is HOLY and what is PROFANE!--- DON'T FORGET THAT SATAN IS A SUPERNATURAL ARCHANGEL We will be no match for him and his trickery with out "The Seal of God in Our Foreheads". He fooled and seduced Eve in the garden! Don't you be fooled by his good fruit, and worship him as God.--- Watch for the EVIL fruit! Don't have Christ return to find you have already been to bed with Satan! Will you remain spiritually true as a "chaste virgin" and wait for your bridegroom, Jesus Christ, or will you spiritually hop in bed with Satan when he comes to earth performing miracles and claims to be God?   [18] A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

[19] Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

So take heed and be real careful what tree you eat from, my friend, for there are "two" trees, two Christ's: (1) the Tree of Life, (Jesus) the Holy One, and (2) the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, (Satan) the profane and abominable one!

Therefore if you are plugged into the wrong vine, get ready for the axe to fall!
Isaiah 18:6
They shall be left together unto the fowls of the mountains, and to the beasts of the earth: and the fowls shall summer upon them, and all the beasts of the earth shall winter upon them.
The "they" who shall be left together are those who are cut off and pruned!

Are you hearing this "O people, scattered and peeled?" Unless you trust in the Lord your God and look to the mount Zion He has established, then the fowls of the mountains, those vultures, are going to feast on you and the beasts of the earth are going to strip you bare!

Understand that the beasts of the earth (eretz) are those animals that were created on the 6th day before the races were created (Gen. 1:24). They are not the same as the beasts of the field (sadeh) who are the vegetation eating farm animals (oxen, sheep, horses, etc.) created on the 8th after Adam was formed to till the ground (Gen. 2:18). The point is that the beasts of the earth (eretz), which I call the wild kingdom, are carnivores like "lions and tigers and bears, oh my"... animals who hunt and devour prey! They are used here symbolically to give a graphic description of how the nations of the New World Order, the beast of Rev. 13:1 likened unto a lion, a leopard, and a bear, are going to take as prey all those who do not have the seal of God (His Word) in their foreheads/mind. (Rev. 9:4)!

And the vultures of the mountains (mountains are symbolic of nations) are not only those kenites who like to dwell in the high branches of governments, but also those dirty birds, those fallen angels who shall comprise Satan's angelic host when he is cast out of heaven to this earth and comes claiming to be the messiah!

The whole point is that the majority of our people are going to become so spiritually destitute in the famine of these last days (Amos 8:11-13) that they shall be easy prey for Satan and his angels when he comes to gather his crowd to the false wedding!

See Live Link to- The famine is coming

However, even now if you have eyes to see and ears to hear you can look out across our land this very day and "see" that we have already become as a valley of spiritually dry bones... a bunch of spiritually dead carcasses strewn about just waiting for the circling vultures to swoop down and feast upon!

Yes, the false messiah is soon coming and the whole world, including the majority of Christianity, is going to believe he is the true Messiah, Jesus Christ, though he will be the false messiah. Take heed to the fact that Christ warned you that if you hear with your flesh ears that Christ has returned or is in Jerusalem, don't you believe it for a moment, because when the true Christ returns this flesh age shall come to a screeching halt. And at that moment, in the twinkling of an eye, we shall all be changed from our flesh bodies to our spiritual bodies. Paul documents that for us in 1 Cor. 15:50-53. Check it out.

Now, here is the simplicity of how it's going down when Jesus Christ returns. The false messiah comes first claiming to be God and showing forth great signs and wonders and performing miracles in the sight of men (Rev. 13:14) to deceive them. And by the way, he is supernatural and he is very, very good at deceiving people!

Matthew 24:24-28
For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
It is written and you have been foretold!
[25] Behold, I have told you before.
So if anyone tells you Christ has returned and you are still in the flesh, don't believe it!
[26] Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.
Here is how it shall be when the true Christ returns:
[27] For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
Have you ever seen lightning flash across the sky? Well, just like that when Jesus Christ returns, all you will see is a flash of light, which is the brightness of His coming (2 Thes. 2:8) when the light of the sun and the moon and the stars will be paled into insignificance, and this flesh age is over! (See Joel 3:15-17)

Meanwhile, Satan's dirty birds, those vultures, are going to gather as many spiritually dead people (carcasses) as they can to attend his wedding in Jerusalem! (Read also Zech. 8:18-23 at Pamphlet #1108.) So do not be a foolish and unwise virgin and be as the first woman taken in the field (Mat. 24:40), because she is taken (seduced) by the false messiah and ends up to be found spiritually impregnated (with child) with his lies and deception when the true Bridegroom comes (Mat. 24:19)! Log unto and read all of Zechariah's Visions.

[28] For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.
Again, it was written long ago that our people would become easy prey for the fowls of the air and the beasts of field if they have forsook the Lord their God and ignored His statutes and commands (Deut. 28:15).
Deut. 28:26
And thy carcase shall be meat unto all fowls of the air, and unto the beasts of the earth, and no man shall fray them away.
Those who have the seal of God in their foreheads shall NOT fall prey to the false messiah! As for the rest, they shall go into captivity and be taken prey by the king of Babylon (Satan) of these last days!
Deut. 28:41-44
Thou shalt beget sons and daughters, but thou shalt not enjoy them; for they shall go into captivity.
Yes, the New World Order shall swallow them up!
[42] All thy trees and fruit of thy land shall the locust consume.

[43] The stranger that is within thee shall get up above thee very high; and thou shalt come down very low.

[44] He shall lend to thee, and thou shalt not lend to him: he shall be the head, and thou shalt be the tail.

Are you familiar with the hidden dynasty of the economy, Satan's debt system of economics that has produced an almost 22 trillion dollar Federal debt, not to mention other  trillions of dollars in combined city, state, and municipal debt? Do you know where our money comes from? Do you know that the Federal Reserve Banks are all privately owned and not part of the Federal government? Hey, we as a nation are borrowed to the hilt and the question is, "To whom do we owe all that money?"

If you do not know the answers to these questions, then find and read the booklet  Live Link to- "The Hidden Dynasty of the Economy".

Let us now conclude the 18th chapter of Isaiah.

Isaiah 18:7
In that time shall the present be brought unto the LORD of hosts of a people scattered and peeled, and from a people terrible from their beginning hitherto; a nation meted out and trodden under foot, whose land the rivers have spoiled, to the place of the name of the LORD of hosts, the mount Zion.
As it is written, when Jesus Christ returns and establishes His ruling throne upon mount Zion, EVERY KNEE shall bow to His authority!
Philip. 2:10
That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;

Romans 14:11
For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.

Again, there is a witness, a proclamation to all the nations of the world that the King with His dominion is coming to establish Zion, so remember back to the last verse of Isaiah chapter 14.
Isaiah 14:32
What shall one then answer the messengers of the nation? That the LORD hath founded Zion, and the poor of his people shall trust in it.
If you do not trust in the Lord your God and in His ways, then you are not going to be among the poor, who are those who are humble before God, who love Him, and who shall be exalted to stand upon Mt. Zion with Jesus Christ when He returns at the sound of the 7th Trump. It is written... and so shall it be!
Rev. 14:1
And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with Him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father's name written in their foreheads.
In chapter 19 the messages to the nations continue and we are going to see what our Father has to say to the nation of Egypt.

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.
