‘A Foolish Nation, of No Particular People’ and the ‘Super Passover’ Moon of 2020 for Israel. How are they connected prophetically?
April 8, 2020.
Night Watchman Discernment:
As this event is ‘Lunar’ it portends coming events for Israel and the Jews. Considering this, we need to look at Biblical prophecy related to Israel. There are two verses (confirmation of a matter?) that may give us insight as to what God suggests is going to happen, regarding Israel.
Isaiah 13:8 And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that travaileth: they shall be amazed one at another; their faces shall be as flames.
The ‘full-moon’ will in fact actually appear orange or reddish to many people (color of fire). Note, this moon is NOT a blood moon (dark red). A blood moon suggests war, conflict or battle. So, what would a face that is as of flames (orange/reddish) suggest of Israel or the Jews? Consider the next verse.
Psalm 79:5 How long, Lord? wilt thou be angry for ever? shall thy jealousy burn like fire?
This verse equates jealousy with the color or emotion of fire. So, what of it? God is angry and jealous because Israel has not accepted Jesus Christ’s offer of redemption and forgiveness of sins and instead seeks false (legalistic) practices. They rejected Christ over 2,000 years ago and ‘went their own legalistic way’ seeking animal sacrifices for sin atonement instead of accepting the Lamb’s atonement for their corporate and individual sins. They (Israel) have now succeeded in angering God, after 2,000 years of rejecting His Son (Jesus Christ) whom He sent them.
Consider the next three verses.
Ezekiel 38:19 For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel;
Romans 10:19 But I say, Did not Israel know? First Moses saith, I will provoke you to jealousy by them that are no people, and by a foolish nation I will anger you.
Romans 11:11 I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, for to provoke them to jealousy.
OK. We finally get to the point. WHAT could possibly cause Israel to be jealous and angry? Romans 10:19 indicates that ‘no people (no nationality)’ or a ‘foolish nation’ will anger Israel. The BRIDE of CHRIST (True Church) is no people of no specific nationality. Christians are considered a ‘foolish’ people for believing in Jesus Christ, the Lamb. The Jews rejected Christ 2,000 years ago (and still do). They believe that animal sacrifices (lambs, red heifers) are the only way to redeem for a nation’s corporate sin and people’s individual sins. Everything else, including salvation through Christ, is foolishness. The ‘foolishness’ of Gentile people.
So what? WHAT would possibly cause the Israel/Jews to be ‘jealous with anger at the TRUE CHURCH (Bride of Christ)? Here we finally arrive at the ‘end-zone’ or the ‘goal-line.’
The RAPTURE/HARPAZO of the Bride. ‘In the twinkling of an eye.’ Yes, the Jews are God’s chosen people. Make no mistake, there is no replacing the people who are the ‘apple of God’s eye.’ As a Christian, Berean and Watchman, there is no mistake as to who these verses apply to. They are meant for Israel (and by a small extension, the Bride of Christ). When the Jews ‘fell’, it was because they rejected Christ 2,000 years ago. As such, Christ turned His message of salvation to a ‘nation of no particular people’ or a ‘foolish nation that believed that Christ is who He said He was.’
Consider that the Jews view their relationship with God, unitarily. Meaning ‘singular’ and not a trinity (Father, Son, Holy Spirit). They feel that their relationship with God is special (which it is!) but absent Christ or the Restrainer. When the TRUE CHURCH (BRIDE OF CHRIST) is raptured/harpazoed … ‘in the twinkling of an eye’, literally millions of Christians (a foolish nation) will suddenly disappear. The Jews will have an idea of what this means and will be filled with jealousy and anger for a number of different reasons. Christians will be spared from the coming storm known as “the week of Jacob’s trouble’ (seven year tribulation). They will also feel ‘slighted’ because of perceived ‘favor’ from God towards Christians.
It is widely understood (among those who are willing to learn) that rapture/harpazo is the rescue of the BRIDE BEFORE THE WEEK OF JACOBS TROUBLE. By logical default, this institutes the beginning or commencing of the tribulation. 2020-2027. 2028 is Israel’s 80th birthday and the beginning of new era, a new epoch, a new millennium. Christ’s 1,000 millennial reign on earth.
Coming full circle.
The moon is for Israel, representing both God’s jealousy and wrath towards Israel, and Israel’s jealousy and anger towards God because of the rapture/harpazo of the TRUE BRIDE OF CHRIST (a foolish nation of no nationality or specific people). By logic, this would indicate … here it is.
REDEMPTION IS IMMINENT.
‘As we see these thing come to pass, look up, you redemption draws nigh.’
‘In the twinkling of an eye.’
Jesus Christ’s Offer of Salvation:
The ABCs of Salvation through Jesus Christ (the Lamb)
A. Admit/Acknowledge/Accept that you are sinner. Ask God’s forgiveness and repent of your sins.
. . . “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23).
. . . “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one.” (Romans 3:10).
. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.” (1 John 1:8).
B. Believe Jesus is Lord. Believe that Jesus Christ is who He claimed to be; that He was both fully God and fully man and that we are saved through His death, burial, and resurrection. Put your trust in Him as your only hope of salvation. Become a son or daughter of God by receiving Christ.
. . . “That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. (John 3:15-17). For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13).
C. Call upon His name, Confess with your heart and with your lips that Jesus is your Lord and Savior.
. . . “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” (Romans 10:9-10).
. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.” (John 1:8-10).
. . . “And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. (John 2:2).
. . . “In this was manifested the love of god toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world. Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.” (1 John 4:9, 14-15).
. . . “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.” (Romans 5:8-10).
. . . “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23).
. . . “Jesus saith unto them, I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6).
. . . “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth.” (Romans 1:16).
. . . “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Acts: 4:12).
. . . “Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth for there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” (1 Timothy 2:4-6).
. . . “For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Thessalonians 5:9).
. . . “But as many as received him, to them gave the power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.” (John 1:12).
