Word of the Lord to Israel
CHAPTER 28 LINK TO OTHER PAGES
To your forefathers the Lord spoke to you O Israel by His prophet Jeremiah, and this day the Lord has stirred up my heart to speak to you the words which were spoken before. Your forefathers now would not hear, and because of it your land became devastated, and the Lord exiled them and their children that were left of them, with His sword following them.
Wherefore now this day after so many days you are few in number. Yet according to His promise He caused you to return to the land of your heritage, that you might posses it, so that once again you might serve the Lord in truth with all your heart and all your soul.
And now seeing how faithful the Lord is with you, will you not in return likewise be faithful to Him, seeing He has again caused you to return, and be a nation again? Is it not only fair and just that you should now honor Him, and not be like unto your forebears, whom for their sins against Him He gave into the hands of their enemies, (of late the Germans) to be killed?
You know it very well you children of Jacob, from not so long ago, that horrible holocaust upon you. Should not these things have taught you a lesson, together with His grace to cause you to be a nation again?
Israel, O Israel, from the reports that I hear, you do not need any enemies, you are your own worst enemy, absolutely determined to destroy yourself in so many ways. Why should I bother to bring you good news, or curtail your neighbors, when your real enemy is within your borders, -- your own selves.
O my dear people I will speak to you the words that are given within me, be they for peace, or for war, be they for joy or for destruction. My heart O my Lord is full of grieve within me, my limbs shake, my heart sinks deeply within me, it is a horrible vision, a dreadful thing that my eyes behold.
I behold a destruction of my beloved, great pain upon those dear to my heart, because you O Israel will not listen to me, because you refuse to hear the Lord and His word for you.
Therefore those whom I love so much will come into pain, them that are dear to my heart are to perish. How O Lord am I to conduct myself, how am I to bear it, to behold these pains to come upon my beloved?
Thou did create me before I was formed in the womb of my mother, and Thou did appoint me a royal heritage that I might be for a star unto the nations, and for a voice unto Thy people.
Hear therefore His voice my beloved, and be not stubborn, I have come as an elected one, and I went forth and looked upon the nations, and I beheld Israel and its people far and near.
With the wisdom given me I became as one who assays, as one to behold what is of the earth and what is of heaven, to determine what is good and what is bad, to know that which is ripe for the eating, and that which is not for consumption.
And so I heard many voices searching for peace and proclaiming peace. I heard the sound of restoration, and how all things will be well. The enemy will not overcome us, because the Lord has made His promises, He will be our stay and we shall not see destruction any more.
And yes, even I spoke to you, not to have any fear, but that you will be delivered, that peace will come to you. But I spoke of a time, and of a time, of an hour, and of yet another to follow it, and of still another thereafter.
So then my beloved I am a messenger of good tidings to Jerusalem, but with it I will not withhold the tidings of what will be thereafter, and again thereafter. I must proclaim to you that which is the word of the Lord within me, saying to you that you will be delivered.
But that He, the Lord, will deliver you in righteousness, and with justice, how therefore - He will be the Deliverer of them that turn to Him, but to destroy those which refuse to listen to His word.
And as I have seen it is the whole of you determined to be cut off, to be destroyed by the Lord your God. Not your enemies around you are of any dread or harm to you, but you are your own dread, your own destruction.
In your ignorance you are bringing another holocaust upon yourselves, not of the Germans but of the Lord your God.
If it were not for the Lord and His promise to Abraham, there would be nothing left of you, you would be eradicated to the full end, just as the Gentiles are to be.
And so in the distress of my heart I must pronounce to you that which you do not wish to hear, that which many of you fancy will not come upon you. And this is the word O my beloved:
"Out of the north, from the northern countries of the Gentiles evil will break forth upon you, upon your land and upon all the inhabitants thereof." You may fancy yourself to be a nation again, and to have your hand upon the affairs of what is to be, but it will not be so every hour.
These Gentiles will come into Jerusalem, and come against all your cities, and they will kill many thousands among you. They will smash your children against a wall, and your wives will be humiliated, with your houses plundered. And yes, you thought this would not ever again come upon you now that you are a nation again.
You do not ever again wish to see a holocaust, wherein so many were famished. Your thoughts and your aspirations however will not hold water, since you carry water with a sieve, not a sealed container.
It is not of themselves, of the nations, but of the Lord to have brought these cruel Gentiles of the north upon you, to render judgment upon you, as He said: "Upon the fathers, and the children, and the children's children," which means you O my beloved in this day, at the end the sixth day of His creation.
He, the Lord, will pronounce judgment against you for your aposty in forsaking Him, and for not returning unto Him as you should have done.
And how my beloved, did you come to have such a hatred for the Christians, who never at all did you any harm? When an Egyptian strikes you, - will you go forth to strike a American in return, one who never at all touched you?
Is there any justice in that, does that make any sense at all? How did you get so ignorant in mind and deed?
Did not the Lord teach you good knowledge, was not the Torah with you, and His prophets, did they not leave a written record? How then did you become so ill-know ledged of all that is taught therein?
The Lord pleaded with you in saying: "What wrong did your fathers find in me that they went far from me, and went after worthlessness, and became worthless?
They did not say, `Where is the Lord who brought us up from the land of Egypt, who led us in the wilderness, in a land of deserts and pits, in a land of drought and deep darkness, in a land that none passes through, where no man dwells?'
"And I brought you into a plentiful land to enjoy its fruits and its good things. But when you came in you defiled My land, and made My heritage an abomination. The priests did not say, `Where is the Lord?' Those who handle the law did not know Me; the rulers transgressed against Me; the prophets prophesied by ba'al, and went after things that do not profit."
These are a few of the words of which you have no true reckoning, for if indeed you had, as you may claim, you would have had the good sense to bead upon your breast and say; Yes we have done wrong, let us return to the Lord, perhaps He will be gracious.
Since therefore you have not done so, the Lord says: "Therefore I still contend with you, says the Lord, and with your children's children I will contend."
You my dear ones of this day in what the Gentiles call the twenty first century, you are these children's children, and He will assuredly contend with you.
Am I not a token O Israel, is not my word like gold and silver, and like every precious thing to be had for those that are wise, that do return to the Lord? Surely they are, but to whom will I speak that they will listen?
Jeremiah spoke the word, and now by the same Holy Spirit I am speaking to you this day; "Why are your rulers going to America to have their taste of them, or to any nation of these Gentiles that you may quench your thirst of their waters?
You asked of me if I would plead with their rulers for your sake, but I refused, instead I reproved you my dear ones for your lack of faith. If I am to plead, I will plead with you because you are dear to me, while for these Gentile rulers, I am angry with them.
When I was yet a young man I said: "What are these rulers of the earth to me?" This I spoke in disdain, and shall I now come with sugar and honey? These rulers had better listen to the word that the Lord will place upon my lips, or they will be twisted in a semblance even these will not recognize.
"Drinking the waters of the Nile," so the Lord said of your forefathers by Jeremiah. And what are you doing, the children's children thereof, if not the very same thing, drinking the waters of the greater Egypt, that translates into the world as a whole? I am appalled at you, so I replied to you, and so I am to this day.
And what if you did return this very day, what if you did wash yourselves with lye and much soap, as the Lord said, how will you be clean? You cannot be saved just like that, even sandpaper upon your tender skin will not remove the stain. Your skin has to be torn from you if then perhaps the stain of your guild may be removed.
Hear what I said and understand the word if you are so able. For in regards to the lye and the soap, so said the Lord: "The stain of your guilt is still before Me."
You worship idols, the Torah, no more than a book, made of a tree, and the talmud, the rules of your own makings. And it is very well known to you how a certain Jesus was crucified outside of Jerusalem by the design of your forefathers, by your Levites. And thus you know very well how the Bull of the offering was indeed offered. And why then are you denying it to this very day?
Your holocaust O Israel is nothing more than a legend, it never happened, not a single Jew perished, it is no more than a legend, a lie, concocted by you, as if now men should have compassion for you.
And now you are upset, but why? And why should I not this day deny it? You are denying that the Bull, Christ Jesus, the very Messiah of God, that He was offered, and that He is now seated at the right hand of God.
What therefore is good for the goose is good for the gander, is that not a saying, a word in meaning? Very well then my dear Israel, you sons of Jacob, your holocaust is just as much a legend since it is you who wish to have it that way.
It is not of me to deny the holocaust just as there is no denial of the Christ with me, but you O Israel, yes you, and you foremost of all are denying the holocaust to have ever happened. It is by your own words, by your own aposty that you are doing so.
You mock the Lord your God, and make Him out for a liar, yet then when you get into trouble you will call on Him to save you? What sort of hypocrisy is this of you O my dear Israel? What cause have you given Him to save you, and to curtail your enemies for you?
If then the Lord reproves your enemies, as indeed He will, and for a space of time safeguard you upon your borders, will it be on your account O Israel? Most certainly not. Therefore I will do as it is given me, and you will rejoice.
You thought it horrendous how these Germans butchered your people in that last holocaust, and indeed it was. But when will you come to the realization that the Lord gave you into their hands for your sins against Him? And of these Germans these were ignorant and blind to mistake themselves upon you.
If there had been any knowledge in them they would have said; "No Lord we will not kill them, nor harm them, because our own sins are as great as theirs, and why then should we become hypocrites to bring yet greater harm upon ourselves." "See to it Thyself O Lord, but we will not harm them." This is what they should have said and done.
Know this O Israel, that before it goes forth I am telling you of it. It is for a sign, and for a token, that the Lord has not forgotten you, nor that His arm is unable to save. But if you will not take learning from it you will come to weep, your joy will turn into sorrow.
I, even I am the token, listen and hear, and do not rebel, hear to my every word, perhaps there may be a lessening of the sorrow in which you are to come.
That you will at end be delivered is more certain than all heaven and earth, but which of you will be delivered O my beloved? Must I again pronounce to you the words I have spoken so many times? How often must I repeat it for them to enter into you?
Tell a lie often enough and it will be believed, so a saying goes. But it seems to me that the lie need but pronounced once for you to believe upon, while for the truth a thousand repetitions does not suffice.
It is precept upon precept that flows from my lips, just like you have done, so it will be done to you. Why O Israel do you not ask the Torah with, which you are so much in love to save you from your enemies. Ask your talmud to keep Iran from your borders, for these are your gods, your reliance.
You stand there before a brick wall reciting its verses, rather than in respect and humility remove your head covering so you may in truth pray to the true God of heaven.
Well on, let these verses save you from the Arabs, or let that wall, that wailing wall as you call it, keep those from the north from entering into Jerusalem to ravish it. Or let those hats and kippah's you don upon your heads to keep Iran from exploding an atomic bomb upon you.
These Iranians do not care, and while you wail and moan before a wall as if the God of heaven can be found there, or as if for it you will receive more favor of Him. Has not then that wall become an obstacle to you, a stumbling-block, upon which to grievously hurt yourselves?
And where else do you troop to - as if the Lord of heaven may be found there? Are not these things your idols to bring the wrath of God upon you?
What is it that the Messiah said? "Go into your inner chamber and lock the door upon yourself to pray in secret, and the Lord who sees in secret will forgive you." Take that as a lesson my dear ones.
What are you doing for your poor O Israel? And yes I am speaking to all those sons of Jacob in other lands, to you I am speaking that are not upon its borders, but in foreign lands, you are Israelites, brothers of those that have come home, and holding fast to the land of your heritage. Many of you are wealthy, because the Lord bestowed it upon you, that you might be for help to those in need.
Where now is your help, where is your brotherly love O you sons of Jacob? Will you give a mere trinket of all that the Lord has bestowed on you? Or will you even say that by your own cunning you enriched yourselves, to pronounce lies, and practice deceit?
Have a turn of heart and see to the needs of your brothers, to the needs of the poor and needy, and be generous, very generous, then see how much more the Lord will increase upon you.
I now know that there are some among you of a generous heart, and their deeds will not be forgotten, but I also know that some and hopefully not many will scorn me for my every word, acclaiming that they have not sinned.
Therefore because you said you have not sinned, and see no error in your ways, the Lord will bring you into judgment, and those tribes of the north countries will come and invade Israel, and do to her as they please.
You in other countries, you do not want to go home, with all the troubles and threats that you hear of it. You feel more secure by these Gentiles among whom you are at ease. But this I say to you in the Spirit of your Messiah with me, that you will not fare any the better, because the Lord has rejected these Gentiles in whom you trust.
He the Lord, for the wickedness of these nations will make a full end of them. And then where will you be, you who do not wish to come home?
Would it not be far wiser to return O faithless Israel? For if you do - so said the Lord, He will not look on you in anger, but be merciful, as He is merciful, His anger will not last forever, but you ought to acknowledge your guilt, that you did rebel, and be truthful about it. Did He not say that He will take you one from a city and two from a family, and to bring them to Zion?
What now are the number of persons to inhabit Tel Aviv, that city, and will only one person, one single individual be saved from it? Or counting the families, and two thereof, what will be the number to enter into the day of the Sabbath?
How many of you wish so dearly to be destroyed, not to enter into the joy of the Sabbath? How many of you wish for the cruel barbarians to invade your cities?
There is a simple solution as the Lord said; "To return O faithless Israel." For in the Lord there is salvation, and in returning unto Him you will be saved. In a bare land on top of the heights as fugitives I behold the sons of Israel, they are crying and praying.
And why are they weeping? Because so said the Lord, "They have perverted their way, and forgotten the Lord their God." And now men seek their lives, for the sword of the Lord that is after them.
If now only you would make a turn about to the Lord, and to do it with unwavering determination, in all uprightness, to swear only by the Lord, then so said the Lord; "The nations shall bless themselves in Him" Forget about that circumcision of old, cut yourselves on the foreskin of your heart.
Do not say Torah, Torah, relying upon what cannot save O you men of Israel, lest so the Lord said: "My wrath go forth like fire, and burn with none to quench it, because of the evil of your doings."
Where is the Shofar, let it be blown, for thus says the Lord: "Raise a standard toward Zion, flee for safety, stay not, for I bring evil from the north, and great destruction. A lion has gone up from his thicket, a destroyer of nations has set out; he has gone forth from his place to make your land a waste; your cities will be ruins without inhabitant."
To you I am speaking O Israel, yes to you is the word of the Lord. Jeremiah now in his day was appalled as I am appalled in this day, both of us are saying; "O Lord Thou did promise them deliverance, and yet now the sword has reached them, and destruction is upon them."
Who is to understand this, and for how long will it be? Then a voice was heard: "O Jerusalem wash your heart from wickedness that you may be saved, how long will evil thoughts lodge within you?"
They are coming O Israel, be warned O Jerusalem, from a distant land they will come to shout against your cities, and take them. They will be there because of your evil doings, and for your backsliding.
This is your doom so spoke the Lord, and it is bitter is it not? Very bitter indeed - for you in your pride - that now it has come clear to your heart.
Why am I speaking O you sons of Israel, why is my voice to you in so many words? I cannot keep still, I must give warning, for I know what is coming, I have seen, and I am in deep pain.
O if only you would listen to the word, for I hear the sound of alarm, the sound of impending war, disaster to come upon disaster, and it is upon you, upon a people I love. O my people it is a sure thing, take learning before it comes upon you.
But no, from the voice of the Lord I already know from before hand that you will not listen to me, nor pay heed to my word, because so the Lord said;
"My people are foolish, they know Me not, they are stupid children, they have no understanding, they are skilled in doing evil, but how to do good they know not." Am I therefore in love with a stupid people? Is my heart so turned for a people that love only evil?
My love for the Gentiles is as deep as it is for you O Israel, but I have given up on them, they refuse to do what is right, wherefore I looked for them to be ground to powder, to bring them down, and humble them to the core.
But as for you O Israel my heart held hope lest you too be ground to powder. I beheld how the sword had maimed you all these many years while these Gentiles were happy, and my compassion welled up in me for you.
And so I thought to embrace you, and kiss you, to prove to you my love, my deep love for your beauty, hoping you would fall in love with me, and to accept my yoke, my bonds for your happiness.
But you had disdain for my love, even as these Gentiles did, these did not know me, and now you refuse to know me as well? O what am I to do for my love that I might have her embracing?
Do you not know O Israel how I searched among the Gentiles for my love, that I might enthrone her, and be for a queen unto me in the mansions of heaven? She however would not hear me, wherefore now she is to be boarded up under planks of cedar.
Then I turned myself to you O Israel to discover my love in you, my great and deep love in Israel, but if now you will be to me like the Gentiles what O Israel am I to do for my love?
How dreadful for a man to be without his love, how painful to be alone. Without her I will only be half a man, without you O my dear Israel there is no cause for me to go on living. O how very much I long for your embracing, for your love and the sweetness of your lips.
But my eyes are full of tears, full of sorrow for my beloved. How long O Lord is this to be that at last I may embrace the love of my heart, my love in Israel?
I may as well be a prophet, seeing how I prophesied so many things yet to come, but what is a prophet when there are no ears, what sense is there in proclamation when no one hears? Yet my heart is full of the grace of the Lord, and His deep love has settled within me that I might show His compassion towards Israel.
My lips refuse to be silent in the hope that she might hear, and come unto me. O if only she knew how very much I love my beloved, if only she knew. I am overcome in love, I am weak for the passion within me towards her, but I must take hold of myself, and be strong, to suppress that deep love, lest I be unfit for my duties.
I must forget my moaning, and my weeping, and dry the tears from my face, for my eyes beheld how the Word of the Lord, that beautiful voice of salvation, is to her an object of scorn, and she reproves me for it, she takes no pleasure in it.
Therefore O my love I am full of the wrath of the Lord, and along with the prophets of old I am growing weary of holding it in, I can no longer contain it. Let it be upon the young and upon the aged, upon the children and their mothers.
Let their houses become a lair for strangers, and their wives ravished, for thus is the word of the Lord within me: "I will stretch out My hand against the inhabitants of the land, and they shall be taken from the least to the greatest."
For now His anger has taken hold of me, and while I hear your cries for peace, and more peace, there will be no peace, until like the dust of the earth your voice can barely be heard and you cry out as one from underneath the clods of the earth, whose voice is but a whisper.
It is for the fruit of your doings O my dear ones, it is because you would not hear the voice of the Lord, even His voice as He spoke by me, therefore your voice became a whisper.
I hear stout words from you, words of peace, you will make an alliance with my people of the Gentiles, you will put your trust in them. But how long will you remain deaf? Did I not say to you, how I asked my Lord, my God to grind them to powder?
And will you rely on powder when it is cast out upon the face of the earth? O my people, my people, how long will you be deaf, and not pay attention at my word?
Must I repeat it to you again and again how as the Lord said, that a people is coming from the north country, a large nation from far off, they are coming with armament of war, and they are cruel with no mercy.
And they know where to find you O daughter of Zion, for it is to you that they are heading, to make you a desolation. How often now have I said this thing, how many times do you have to be told, and yet you will not believe?
But when the hour has struck and you hear that these are on their way, then anguish will take hold of you, and you will feel helpless. You will cry out like a women when she is bearing a child, for the destruction that is coming upon you.
O my people, my people, flee, do not stand still, go and hide yourselves, do not waste time getting things out of your homes, but flee swiftly, for these will not give warning, they will come suddenly.
And as for you it will be unexpectedly since you refused to hear when we spoke to you. It is is for your unbelief that the Lord referred to you as; "Refuse silver," and accordingly rejected you.
Alright now I will quote to you His words as they were spoken to you, to your forefather, and to the children and to the children's children: "Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, Amend your ways and your doings, and I will let you dwell in this place.
Do not trust in these deceptive words: `This is the temple of the Lord, the temple of the Lord, the temple of the Lord. For if you truly amend your ways and your doings, if you truly execute justice one with another."
"If you do not oppress the alien, the fatherless or the widow, or shed innocent blood in this place, and if you do not go after other gods to your own hurt, then I will let you dwell in this place, in the land that I gave of old to your fathers for ever. Behold, you trust in deceptive words to no avail. Is it I whom they provoke? says the Lord. Is it not themselves, to their own confusion?"
"In the day that I brought them out of the land of Egypt, I did not speak to your fathers or command them concerning burnt offerings and sacrifices. But this command I gave them,
`Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and you shall be my people; and walk in all the way that I command you, that it may be well with you. But they did not obey or incline their ear, but walked in their own counsels and the stubbornness of their evil hearts, and went backward and not forward."
But you have all these words, have you not? And you have read them, for they were recorded from old. But these apply to you in this day my dear Israel. Or perhaps you do not read at all, the word of the Lord being a burden to you.
You may not recall how the Lord prophesied to you, how death would be preferred to those of you which remained after they were driven to the many different nations. But you do recall the holocaust, and these like sheep to the slaughter preferred death over living.
Should that not make an impression upon you my dear ones, how every single word of the Lord comes to bear? But no, you say, we are wise, the law of the Lord is with us. And yes indeed it is with you, but what else did the Lord say?
He said that the false pen of your scribes has made it into a lie." I know your talmud and what the scribes have done. And I know your Torah and how your rabbi's twist its words and meanings.
You my dear Israel are no different from the Gentiles in twisting the words of the Lord into what suits their own fancy. And so I must admit you learned well from these Gentiles how to corrupt that which is wholesome, to bring destruction upon yourselves as these Gentiles have done.
Should I now give up on you as I have on the Gentiles? If only my love for you could die, but it is an everlasting love that cannot die, and so I am bound to you.
Very well - you my stubborn ones, dear to my heart, but stained with aposty, my Lord, and your Lord, said thus unto you: " I will give their wives to others and their fields to conquerors, because from the least to the greatest every one is greedy for unjust gain; from prophet to priest every one deals falsely."
Have you so little love for your wives, for your own other half, or for your daughters that in your carelessness you are giving them into the hands of barbarians?
I do not understand your love, how you can be so callous, like an ostrich with his head buried she cares not for her young, yet they cry peace, peace, when there is no peace.
"Were you ashamed when you committed abomination? No, you were not at all ashamed; you did not know how to blush. Therefore these shall fall among the fallen; when I punish them, they shall be overthrown, says the Lord."
Is there a remedy my dear sons of Jacob, is there anything that can be done for you? I fully agree with the Lord your God where He said; "I will refine them and test them, for what else can I do, because of my people? You are not leaving any other choice for yourselves, but that indeed you will be refined, and tested, and how bitter that testing will be.
And now that you Gentiles are hearing all my words for Israel, and you are gloating within yourselves that even their own Lord and God will strike upon them, you better wipe that smile from your faces you nations of Gentiles.
For if Israel will as yet suffer these things after all those centuries of hardship upon them, do not think that you will escape you nations of Gentiles.
Your forefathers were barbarian butchers, cruel and murdering those which confessed the Christ. These many that so perished however were the jewels of humanity, the pure gold. Among the lot of your forefathers these were the precious ones.
And like the Lord took them a few here and there and brought them into safety, so the Lord will do to Israel, a few here and there, and He will gather them into one place. But as for you nations that rose up against them, He will make a full end.
My lips are like a fountain of water, of pure clean water excellent for the soul of a man, O how my lips are a spring that presses upon me to go forth, and yet I lament how the water is of so little use to man, how they refuse to drink of it, how they refuse to save their souls.
But I O Lord cannot forebear, my lips refuse to be sealed. If I close my lips Thy waters come to burst forth, I cannot forebear, nor ever cease to love the creature Thou has made, because Thou O Lord made it, and they are Thine.
My love for all man, for each and everyone of them past present and future is an enduring love, a most astonishing love, a very sure love that refuses to be abated.
O what is this that has come into my soul, that great and deep love for all mankind, the image of Thy love O Lord, Thy very image shows forth in me, I bear Thy love, and Thy compassion for the souls of man, of all man.
Thou art marvelous O Lord, and cannot look upon what is evil. Thou does deal with man in righteousness, and in truth, with justice and with much compassion.
What is it with you, you nations of Gentiles, more ignorant than the soul of a fool, that you dare put your hand on the heritage of the Lord, you foolish ignorant babes that you are. I will quote you the word of the Lord to your demise, and the welfare of His heritage, so you may know how foolish you are.
"Thus says the Lord concerning all my evil neighbors who touch the heritage which I have given my people Israel to inherit: "Behold, I will pluck them up from their land, and I will pluck up the house of Judah from among them. And after I have plucked them up, I will again have compassion on them, and I will bring them again each to his heritage and each to his land.
And it shall come to pass, if they will diligently learn the ways of my people, to swear by my name, `As the Lord lives,' even as they taught my people to swear by ba'al, then they shall be built up in the midst of my people. But if any nation will not listen, then I will utterly pluck it up and destroy it, says the Lord."
This word was for you my people great in number, for you nations of Gentiles, it is a word to your welfare if you will accept it that way. The question then becomes if indeed you are competent to understand the message, if for all its worth you take hold of it.
O my people great in number, you do not know me, yet though you shall know me, you do not care for me, yet you shall come to adore me. I am for your welfare, yet you see me as an enemy.
How am I able to speak in this way, to know what is to be, if not it was given unto me of the Most High Lord, of the Creator of all?
He created me before ever the dinosaurs roamed the earth, and before even its foundations were laid, and I was retained in His Spirit for the day when it was said unto my mother; "It is a boy, and he lives.
I did not wish to breathe but for the pains upon me I cried forth, and I will live to see my desire, and the cause for which I was placed in this exile.
Hear therefore my people great in number, you Gentiles, and hear O Israel my embracing, "give glory to the Lord your God before He brings darkness, before your feet stumble on the twilight mountains, and while you look for light He turns it into gloom and makes it deep darkness.
But if you will not listen, my soul O my people, will weep in secret for your pride; my eyes will weep bitterly and run down with tears, because the Lord's flock has been taken captive.
So speaks my heart in the words of old, and I should hide myself where no man can see me to weep for my people, to cry bitter tears for their demise, for my people great in number and for my embracing.
I was angry, I beheld my people great in number and my soul became filled with indignation, and in the anguish of my soul I cried out for them to be ground to powder, for I spoke in wisdom, I did not allow my anger to speak rashly, but in wisdom and in understanding I spoke, crying out to the Lord.
I cried for your destruction O my people, but in wisdom I cried. I spoke beholding the day of yesterday from the day of tomorrow, foreseeing that which will be, to have unto me that which was appointed for me.
And what will you do about it my people, will you turn the word that once left my lips that these may not come upon you?
It was for your welfare that I spoke, with all the indignation within me I came to speak for your well-being. But O how are these to understand the tremors of my heart, or the deep love I have for you?
Deep indeed is my love, deep and wide with no ends in sight. The years will be without end, and how will you abide therein, you my dear ones caught in that deep love?
O how I could speak to you of what is in your day of tomorrow, but you are without ears, you must be ground to powder, for all your aposty there is no alternative.
And so my soul weeps, and my longing is for a day to come. It is in wisdom that I speak my dear ones, in wisdom and in the understanding granted me from the Most High God for your welfare, yea indeed for your welfare, if only you knew.
O my soul, cease now from speaking, silence your lips, there are no ears, to what end therefore do I lift up my voice. But it is in vain I cannot suppress it, like a spring of water under pressure it presses to burst forth, there is no seal for my lips.
It is that love O my people, that deep astonishing love that reopens my lips, my deep love for you, that astonishing love for my people, for the creature made of Him who instilled that love within me.
If now only you would speak saying; "We acknowledge our wickedness, O Lord, and the iniquity of our fathers, for we have sinned against thee. Do not spurn us, for Thy name's sake; do not dishonor Thy glorious throne; remember and do not break Thy covenant with us. We set our hope on Thee, for Thou art our trust."
If then such words come from the depth of you with full sincerity along with the deeds, there is hope for you. Remember how the Lord said: "Cursed is the man who trusts in man and makes flesh his arm, whose heart turns away from the Lord. He is like a shrub in the desert, and shall not see any good come. He shall dwell in the parched places of the wilderness, in an uninhabited salt land."
And again He said: "Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose trust is the Lord. He is like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream, and does not fear when heat comes, for its leaves remain green, and is not anxious in the year of drought, for it does not cease to bear fruit."
I know that you will be rebellious, therefore the Lord said: "Behold, I will make them know, this once I will make
them know My power and My might, and they shall know that My name is the
When you are established the nations will come from every part of the earth and proclaim; "Our fathers have inherited nothing but lies, worthless things in which there is no profit." And they will come to hear the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.
I, O Israel, so said the Lord, have loved you with an everlasting love, therefore did I continue My faithfulness to you. And I will bring you back from every corner of the earth, among them will be the blind and the lame and the women with child, a great company shall return.
And I will forgive their inequity, and remember their sins no more, and I will multiply you like the sand on the seashore that can not be numbered. For I will pardon those whom I leave as a remnant.
I raised up for David a righteous Branch, and He will reign as King, and execute justice and righteousness in the land. Behold the Branch of the Lord.
It is I O you sons of Jacob, yet a moment and I will come upon the clouds on a day of terror, on a day of no sun, and no moon to bring to all the inhabitants of the earth the reward of their lips and of their deeds.
In My days Judah will be saved, and Israel will dwell securely. And this is the name by which I will be called: `The Lord is our righteousness.' There is hope for your future, says the Lord, and your children shall come back to their own country.
I heard E'phraim bemoaning, `Thou hast chastened me, and I was chastened, like an untrained calf; bring me back that I may be restored, for Thou art the Lord my God. For after I had turned away I repented; and after I was instructed, I smote upon my thigh; I was ashamed, and I was confounded, because I bore the disgrace of my youth."
Will now these words make an impression upon you my beloved? Or is it because I, the servant of the Lord am speaking with a foreign tongue, because I am Gentile, born of a people in the north? Did not the Lord your God form every person upon the whole face of the earth?
And may He not have mercy on those whom He formed other than you? And did He not command you to love your neighbor, and to do good even to your enemies?
I now am not your enemy, but a dear friend, and your God, the Lord of all creation gave me to understand the very foundations of the earth. He taught me how the spheres are held in place, and upon what foundation these are resting, and He taught me many more things in the sciences such as no man has discovered or understood.
And in dealing with such things as are beyond the understanding of man, I played with them like a child, as were they no more than child's-play to me, for in that measure He taught me, and awarded me the same.
If then in the ignorance of your mind you will impute these many secrets into my cunning, do you not know that then there is no hope of life for you, or for any man, past present or future? Did not the Lord say:
"If the heavens above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth below can be explored, then I will cast off all the descendants of Israel for all that they have done, says the Lord."
If I am not what I have said that I am, the whole world lies in damnation, and Christ would have died in vain upon the cross.
How therefore with all the evidence before you - will you still deny me? Take learning, be educated, take on knowledge, and keep faith, it is of the Lord and none other to have revealed foundations.
