Journal 2009: September

Check mate

During the night of 13th of September 2009, after I had shared many things regards the time of the end with some friends the night before, I had a dream. It also happened after I was asked a very difficult question which I did not know how to answer the question. This same question came up during the morning of the 12th of September 2009, because of another friend who also sees many things regards the end. So He claims to see. During the night of the 12th of September the Lord, warned me in a dream what was about to come to pass. In this dream I was standing on chess board. I was one of the pawns on the chess board. Infront of me, were two women standing. Both were like pawns on this same chess board. The very floor, on which I was standing, was the same floor on which I had a certain discussion the next day. The two women were like two horses on the chess board. They had the same ability to destroy the king, by putting him in check mate. It was my turn to move and I had no where to go. I looked down at the chess board and realized that I could change the rules, just be moving to a smaller blocks which would make it nearly impossible for these women to reach me. It would also change the entire time it would take for them to put me in check mate again.

The dream of was as follow: I was given a flower, which I ad to go and give to some people. The flower had a thick stem, but the flower had faded. It hanged over my hand. I was told to go and give this flower to some men. I was given this flower by some women, so that I should give it to their husbands. I felt a bit ashamed to give this flower to these men, for what kid of love would that represent to these men. Then, although reluctantly, I gave it to the men. I remembering shaking the soft flower until it opened up, lying of the top of my closed hand. I saw the flower was an orange Gardenia, with purple leaves coming from the stem.

As I gave the flower to these men, I was so embarrassed that I decided to say something, to encourage these men, because of the weak and feeble gift, which showed no love, would represent to them. I told them that they were special and held a special place in their wives lives. I tried to encourage them.

As I woke up I asked the Lord what this dream meant. As I waited on the Lord's response I saw a vision of bowl full of meat that has been chewed. Then the word of the Lord came to me. I suddenly heard a voice say to me: “You have been giving the people old, and over chewed meat, which is like a faded flower. I knew that it was suppose to be a beautiful flower, but the flower had gone off and it was an embracement to give it to people. As the Lord said this to me I started to weep out load. My heart was broken to the core. I felt like a great failure and had misunderstood the Lord many years. I felt like the Lord was saying that all those things which He had shown me since the beginning was for my encouragement and not for them. People were not encouraged by my withered flower of witness. It was meant for me and not for them. I was broken and wept even more, because I had shared many things with many people and it had nearly caused me great grieve and anger. I also knew that the time for many of these things had not yet come to pass and some of the chronology of those things was still not clear to me. I realized that God had not yet released me to reveal anything that I have heard from the Lord. I had to keep these things in my heart. I felt very discouraged and embarrassed before the Lord and man. I realized the implication of all these things to all that I have done so far. It would surely change the way I would look at all that has happened in the past. I had received much rejection and sorrow because many did not want to hear any of those things which actually were meant for my eyes only.

That day I mourned and spoke to the Lord, because I did not know what I should do. Then the Lord gave me a Psalm of David, saying: 5 O God, You know my folly and blundering; my sins and my guilt are not hidden from You. 6 Let not those who wait and hope and look for You, O Lord of hosts, be put to shame through me; let not those who seek and inquire for and require You [as their vital necessity ] be brought to confusion and dishonour through me, O God of Israel. 7 Because for Your sake I have borne taunt and reproach; confusion and shame have covered my face. David prophesied about Yahshua's reproach before men, because of the call that God had given Him.

Dream: Chicken in a bottle

During the morning of the 16th of September 2009, I had another dream. I my dream I had to catch some kind of a flying bird or chicken, having a long beak, from getting away. The bird was picking at some mosquitoes, which were flying close to the roof. The roof was a wooden roof. I got hold of a bottle and waited until the right time and scooped up this little rooster or chicken into the bottle, containing it from getting away. As I put this chicken into the bottle I realized that it would suffocate if I would put a lid on it. Then I put this chicken down on its side, still on the inside of the bottle. The chicken became powerless to move and was on the inside of some kind of a fish tank. The chicken was a pure white and was nearly too big for this bottle, which was lying on its side on the inside of some empty fish tank.

A Man clothed in linen

During that day I prayed and asked the Lord to show me how I could correct that which I in my folly and ignorance had done. I was not a trusted witness, but felt like a fool. Then as I waited on the Lord I saw vision. I saw man clothed in white linen, with a large head and having glasses on, walking standing, looking away from me. After this asked the Lord to answer me according to His word or some scripture. Then the Lord gave me: 8 And she, being put forward and prompted by her mother, said, Give me the head of John the Baptist right here on a platter. (Mat 14:8 Ampl)

What was the Lord saying? Did Satan want to cut off my head? Was a spirit of Jezebel trying to shut me up? I was in even more confusion, because of this word. Then I asked the Lord another word? Then the Lord gave me the word to Daniel, saying: 2 In the first year of his reign, I, Daniel, understood from the books the number of years which, according to the word of the Lord to Jeremiah the prophet, must pass by before the desolations [which had been ] pronounced on Jerusalem should end; and it was seventy years. [Jer. 25:11, 12; 29:10. ] 3 And I set my face to the Lord God to seek Him by prayer and supplications, with fasting and sackcloth and ashes; (Dan 9:2-3 Ampl)

I decided to read all the chapters of Daniel 7 – 12. As I ended my reading, I read this passage of scripture: 4 On the twenty-fourth day of the first month, as I was on the bank of the great river Hiddekel [which is the Tigris ], 5 I lifted up my eyes and looked, and behold, a man clothed in linen, whose loins were girded with pure gold of Uphaz. 6 His body also was [a golden lustre ] like beryl, his face had the appearance of lightning, his eyes were like flaming torches, his arms and his feet like glowing burnished bronze, and the sound of his words was like the noise of a multitude [of people or the roaring of the sea ]. [Rev. 1:12-16; 19:6. ] (Dan 10:46 Ampl)

And

28 Here is the end of the matter. As for me, Daniel, my [waking ] thoughts troubled and alarmed me much and my cheerfulness of countenance was changed in me; but I kept the matter [of the interpreting angel's information ] in my heart and mind. (Dan 7:28 Ampl)

After this as I looked I saw a vision from the Lord. I became very afraid, because I had made many mistakes and were greatly humbled by the Holy Spirit. As I looked I was afraid that I had made this up. Then I saw one who came with great speed towards me. Then the Lord Yahshua spoke to me encouraging me with great love. I was even more afraid that I made up those things. Then by faith the Lord spoke to me. I refused to listen to the words, because I was afraid of being led into deception. Then the Lord Yahshua convinced me that it was Him speaking to me. Then He said to me that He was not angry at me, nor was He overwhelmed by the mistakes which I had made thus far, in hearing His Voice. Even as I looked I suddenly saw a vision of the Pretoria Zoo. Then the Lord said to me: “You will travel between these two hills and to will go past the Pretoria Zoo. This will be a sign that I have spoken to you and that I have not forsaken you. Then the Lord said: “Nothing is impossible for Him!” I had felt like I had once again failed and disappointed Him, because of my weak character and due to my ignorance. I confessed that I was overcome by zeal for him and had acted in love and sincerity for His kingdom's sake and not for my own sake. I have trusted Him fully and will continue to trust in Him to an even greater measure. Then the Lord once again encouraged me, explaining the scriptures and the way I used to see Yahshua, when He rebuked His disciples, saying: “You of little faith, why did you doubt?” As I looked into the spirit the Lord asked me what I saw? I saw the face of the Lord, like the time when He was on the earth. When I saw the Love of Yahshua, pouring out towards me, I was in unbelief and doubt that a Father could love me so much. I wept, because the Lord's love broke my heart once again, because I could not belief that I was not a failure and had disappointed Him.

Saw a large obelisk, standing infront of the White House – Received Lev 25-26. 7 Time of their punishment was 49 times.

I saw a us driving through a beautiful landscape in the low field in South Africa. I believed that God was telling me about a long last holiday that we would soon go on to break way for a while. The place looked like the small town of Lydenburg. This vision helped to assure my that it was God's will for us to break way in the near future. I started planning the October holiday, going to the small sea coast town of St. Lucia.

After this I saw Stellenboch's mountains, in South Africa. I believed that God wanted me to contact some one in Stellenboch, but was not sure.

Operating in the Holy of Holies - Blood Line curses

On the morning of the 21 st of September 2009, the word of the Lord came to regards the sins of the fathers and blood line curses. The word came through the words of the prophet Ezekiel, saying: 1 THE WORD of the Lord came to me again, saying, 2 What do you mean by using this proverb concerning the land of Israel, The fathers have eaten sour grapes, and the children's teeth are set on edge? 3 As I live, says the Lord God, you shall not have occasion any more to use this proverb in Israel. 4 Behold, all souls are Mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is Mine; the soul that sins, it shall die. [Rom. 6:23. ] (Ezek 18:1-3 Ampl)

20 The soul that sins, it [is the one that ] shall die. The son shall not bear and be punished for the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear and be punished for the iniquity of the son; the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him only, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon the wicked only. 21 But if the wicked man turns from all his sins that he has committed and keeps all My statutes and does that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live; he shall not die. 22 None of his transgressions which he has committed shall be remembered against him; for his righteousness which he has executed [for his moral and spiritual rectitude in every area and relation ], he shall live. 23 Have I any pleasure in the death of the wicked? says the Lord, and not rather that he should turn from his evil way and return [to his God ] and live? 24 But if the righteous man turns away from his righteousness and commits iniquity and does according to all the abominations that the wicked man does, shall he live? None of his righteous deeds which he has done shall be remembered. In his trespass that he has trespassed and in his sin that he has sinned, in them shall he die. (Ezek 18:20-24 Ampl)

As God told me in the beginning saying that the fire of His Love will immediately heal people. The truth is that there are iniquity and bloodline curses, but from now on I am going to even rise up the dead, He said to me. God gave me revelation of the power of the work that Yahshua the Messiah – Yahshua the Messiah, has done through the cross. God explained how His church must go from worship in the Holy Place to worship in the most Holy Place, where Moses spoke to God face to face.

After this the Word of the Lord that came to me that morning, according Luke, saying: 17 And you will be hated (despised) by everyone because [you bear ] My name and for its sake. 18 But not a hair of your head shall perish. [I Sam. 14:45. ] (Luke 21:17 -18 Ampl)

You will be persecuted

Directly after this, as I opened the word of God, the scripture opened to me, by the power of the Spirit of God, saying: 18 If the world hates you, know that it hated Me before it hated you. 19 If you belonged to the world, the world would treat you with affection and would love you as its own. But because you are not of the world [no longer one with it ], but I have chosen (selected) you out of the world, the world hates (detests) you. 20 Remember that I told you, A servant is not greater than his master [is not superior to him ]. If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you; if they kept My word and obeyed My teachings, they will also keep and obey yours. 21 But they will do all this to you [inflict all this suffering on you ] because of [your bearing ] My name and on My account, for they do not know or understand the One Who sent Me. 22 If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not be guilty of sin [would be blameless ]; but now they have no excuse for their sin. 23 Whoever hates Me also hates My Father. 24 If I had not done (accomplished) among them the works which no one else ever did, they would not be guilty of sin. But [the fact is ] now they have both seen [these works ] and have hated both Me and My Father. (John 15:18-24 Ampl) The Lord gave me this word, to confirm that I will be hated and persecuted, because they hated and persecuted Him. The Lord said that He had called me out of this world, not to follow its religions or its world systems, but to follow Him.

Bearing only the Lord's Yoke

After this the Lord spoke to me about those classes, which I had been presenting since the beginning of this year. He has given me a new understanding of the classes and said that the classes are finished. The Lord said that He wanted me to teach what He gives me by His Spirit, and that He wants men to know the truth. He wants to prepare them for what is coming. He wants also to remove the burden and the joke that was upon my neck. In a vision I saw a chef standing in a kitchen, full of dirty dishes, stacked high up, so that the chef was overwhelmed by the dishes. God explained how I have been feeling about so many things I wanted to do for Him. I felt like dirty dishes were standing the whole kitchen full, wanting to present things to people. Then God said: “It is finished!” The next moment I saw that the kitchen was clean. All the worries were gone. Now I was freed up to do what God wanted me to do. I sensed that Satan try to keep us busy. God has just given me a revelation about deliverance. Satan gets people busy, but Yahshua was never busy. He everything in an instant. In an instant people were delivered. Then I thanked God saying: “Thank you Father that you are removing the yoke from my neck. The yoke from your people's necks and You are setting them free by Your love and You are showing them that you care about them. Then the Lord spoke to me and said that I no longer have to prove to them, but must show them. Then God reminded me of the time when the wall of fire came around me and I said to Him: “Lord this is your Glory. This is Your power. And He said to me: “No this is My Love!” Then the Lord said to me: “Come and sit at My righthand until I make your enemy your footstool for your feet. The Lord is saying to me that He wants me to come and sit and no longer fight a fight or a battle or climb a ladder, or anything like that but to sit.

“Thank you Father. I worship you O Lord. Thank you that you are preparing me in the fullness.”

Then the Lord gave me a scripture in the book of proverbs, saying: 4 The reward of humility and the reverent and worshipful fear of the Lord brings riches, esteem, honour and life. God was advising me to only be humble and to fear YHWH. When I fear YHWH and humble myself before Him, allowing His Spirit to do everything through me that He wants to do then all that is needed will be in place.

Then He also showed me a vision of my wife that goes to the doctor, doing blood tests. And the Lord said that I must let her go and allow her to do the blood tests. He will support her and he will also supply all the finances. That evening my wife came to me with the good news. Although previously, the medical aid were not going to refund her for the blood tests, they confirmed that were willing to carry this cost also.

Then again the Lord said to me: “It is finished!” Then the Lord, by His Spirit, led me to a place in the word of God, confirming His word to me, saying: “It is finished!” When God said He has finished the work which He had done, then it is finished. Then God confirmed that the work that I have done is finished and the labour that I have done is finished, trying to get things in place and trying get things up and running, all those things are finished. All that is needed is to sit at His feet. Praise YHWH! At that moment when Yahshua said: “It is finished!” I looked from the outside of the earth, like one who is on a satellite, looking towards earth. Then I saw blood red roses that shot up from the earth. Then I said Lord: “What is it?” Then the Lord asked me: “What do you see?” And I said: “I see blood red roses shooting up out of the earth. It was the truth that had broken through. Many men and women's lives would be changed. I did not understand exactly what it meant. Then I asked the Lord a to confirm this word by a Rhema word. As I opened up the bible the Lord gave the word to Solomon, saying: The fruit of the [uncompromisingly ] righteous is a tree of life, and he who is wise captures human lives [for God, as a fisher of men--he gathers and receives them for eternity ]. [Matt. 4:19; I Cor. 9:19; James 5:20. ] (Pro 11:30 Ampl)

And which is the same as the word to the prophet Daniel: “ And the teachers and those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament, and those who turn many to righteousness (to uprightness and right standing with God) [shall give forth light ] like the stars forever and ever. [Matt. 13:43. ] (Dan 12:3 Ampl)

All that was needed is God's righteousness. When we walk in the truth of His righteousness, which He has shown me, which I have taken and believed before. Therefore I am free so that I could also make many others free, by the righteousness that He has given us. From now on the Lord does not want us to operate in the Holy Place, but in the Most Holy Place. I also understood from God that: Yes, the Holy was important. It had a place, but He never indented for us to operate in the Holy, because the veil was torn so that we could go into the Most Holy. So He wants us to sit. “Thank you Father!”

You will stay in Arabia

After that I turn my bible again, and that is where I want to continue right now. I saw some other visions. I saw a vision where I was in Israel. Then the Lord asked me what do I see? And I said: “Lord I see Megiddo! I saw a desert and I saw Megiddo. Then the Spirit of the Lord came upon me and I wept. And the Lord spoke to me about His tears and He spoke to me about His heart. How I will enter that place and I will fall down in that place and I will weep. I will weep for the war that will break out in Megiddo, which is the valley of decision. I will weep when I come to that place. And the weeping will last for hours. After that I looked again and saw something like a Bedouin tent. And the Lord said: “What do you see” And I said: “I see a Bedouin tent!” Then the Lord said: “I will go this tent and I will meet a man their, and we will speak to him. And even though he will not understand all that we speak to him, His Spirit will touch that man and he will know that Yahshua has touched him. And he will come to believe in Yahshua.

Then the word of the Lord came to me, according to Isaiah, saying: “In the forests and thickets of Arabia you shall lodge, O you caravans of Dedanites [from northern Arabia ]. 14 To the thirsty [Dedanites ] bring water, O inhabitants of the land of Tema [in Arabia ]; meet the fugitive with bread [suitable ] for him. 15 For they have fled from the swords, from the drawn sword, from the bent bow, and from the grievousness of war [the press of battle ]. 16 For the Lord has said this to me, Within a year, according to the years of a hireling [who will work no longer than was agreed ], all the glory of Kedar [an Arabian tribe ] will fail. 17 And the remainder of the number of archers and their bows, the mighty men of the sons of Kedar, will be diminished and few; for the Lord, the God of Israel, has spoken it. (Isa 21:13-17 Ampl) The Lord spoke to me, in complete confidence that this will come to pass. God is saying that He is sending us to Arabia. And we will flee for our lives in Arabia, And He will protect us. And He will give us hiding, he will give us food and He will give us bread, in that area. See The Voice Crying in the Wilderness

I looked and I saw a Lion. I saw the nose of a Lion. Then the Lord said: “What do you see?” And I said: “I see the snout of a Lion!” God gave me great boldness and understanding. This Lion is the Apostle. God said: “I am sending you to go to this nation and to this people. Then the Lord confirmed His word to me saying: “When I reach Israel. When I come into Israel. The Lord did not say if, but said ‘when'. The Lord also confirmed that we will go to Israel and we will go their soon. I will go their in a time of peace, according to God's will. “Praise Your Name Father! I worship you Name! You are God and you are Lord!”

70 Years are determined for your people

As I turned the pages of the bible again I opened up in second Chronicles 36. And the Lord made me opening this place. This is where God busy working with me right now. This is what He is speaking to me right now. 20 Those who had escaped from the sword he took away to Babylon, where they were servants to him and his sons until the kingdom of Persia was established there, 21 To fulfil the Lord's word by Jeremiah, till the land had enjoyed its sabbaths; for as long as it lay desolate it kept sabbath to fulfil seventy years. [Lev. 25:4; 26:43; Jer. 25:11; 29:10. ] 22 Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word of the Lord by the mouth of Jeremiah might be accomplished, the Lord stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia so that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom and also put it in writing: 23 Thus says Cyrus king of Persia: All the kingdoms of the earth the Lord, the God of heaven, has given me, and He has charged me to build Him a house in Jerusalem, which is in Judah. Whoever there is among you of all His people, may the Lord his God be with him, and let him go up [to Jerusalem ]. (2 Chron 36:20-23 Ampl)

This morning I specifically spoke to the Lord and said to the Lord that I really need to know! I believe God is answering me on what I need to know. Then I continued: 1 NOWIN the first year of Cyrus king of Persia [almost seventy years after the first Jewish captives were taken to Babylon ], that the word of the Lord by the mouth of Jeremiah might begin to be accomplished, the Lord stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia so that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom and put it also in writing: [Jer. 29:10-14. ] 2 Thus says Cyrus king of Persia: The Lord, the God of heaven, has given me all the kingdoms of the earth, and He has charged me to build Him a house at Jerusalem in Judah. 3 Whoever is among you of all His people, may his God be with him, and let him go up to Jerusalem in Judah and rebuild the house of the Lord, the God of Israel, in Jerusalem; He is God.

God has been speaking to me about Leviticus 25. Included now: 1 THE LORD said to Moses on Mount Sinai, 2 Say to the Israelites, When you come into the land which I give you, then shall the land keep a sabbath to the Lord. 3 For six years you shall sow your field, and for six years you shall prune your vineyard and gather in its fruits. 4 But in the seventh year there shall be a sabbath of solemn rest for the land, a sabbath to the Lord; you shall neither sow your field nor prune your vineyard. 5 What grows of itself in your harvest you shall not reap and the grapes on your uncultivated vine you shall not gather, for it is a year of rest to the land. 6 And the sabbath rest of the [untilled ] land shall [in its increase ] furnish food for you, for your male and female slaves, your hired servant, and the temporary resident who lives with you, 7 For your domestic animals also and for the [wild ] beasts in your land; all its yield shall be for food. 8 And you shall number seven sabbaths or weeks of years for you, seven times seven years, so the total time of the seven weeks of years shall be forty-nine years. 9 Then you shall sound abroad the loud trumpet on the tenth day of the seventh month [almost October ]; on the Day of Atonement blow the trumpet in all your land. 10 And you shall hallow the fiftieth year and proclaim liberty throughout all the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a jubilee for you; and each of you shall return to his ancestral possession [which through poverty he was compelled to sell ], and each of you shall return to his family [from whom he was separated in bond service ]. 11 That fiftieth year shall be a jubilee for you; in it you shall not sow, or reap and store what grows of itself, or gather the grapes of the uncultivated vines. 12 For it is a jubilee; it shall be holy to you; you shall eat the [sufficient ] increase of it out of the field. 13 In this Year of Jubilee each of you shall return to his ancestral property. 14 And if you sell anything to your neighbour or buy from your neighbour, you shall not wrong one another. 15 According to the number of years after the Jubilee, you shall buy from your neighbour. And he shall sell to you according to the number of years [remaining in which you may gather ] the crops [before you must restore the property to him ]. 16 If the years [to the next Jubilee ] are many, you may increase the price, and if the years remaining are few, you shall diminish the price, for the number of the crops is what he is selling to you. 17 You shall not oppress and wrong one another, but you shall [reverently ] fear your God. For I am the Lord your God. 18 Therefore you shall do and give effect to My statutes and keep My ordinances and perform them, and you will dwell in the land in safety. 19 The land shall yield its fruit; you shall eat your fill and dwell there in safety. 20 And if you say, What shall we eat in the seventh year if we are not to sow or gather in our increase? 21 Then [this is My answer: ] I will command My [special ] blessings on you in the sixth year, so that it shall bring forth [sufficient ] fruit for three years. 22 And you shall sow in the eighth year, but eat of the old store of produce; until the crops of the ninth year come in you shall eat of the old supply. 23 The land shall not be sold into perpetual ownership, for the land is Mine; you are [only ] strangers and temporary residents with Me. [Heb. 11:13; I Pet. 2:11-17. ] 24 And in all the country you possess you shall grant a redemption for the land [in the Year of Jubilee ]. 25 If your brother has become poor and has sold some of his property, if any of his kin comes to redeem it, he shall [be allowed to ] redeem what his brother has sold. 26 And if the man has no one to redeem his property, and he himself has become more prosperous and has enough to redeem it, 27 Then let him count the years since he sold it and restore the overpayment to the man to whom he sold it, and return to his ancestral possession. [I Kings 21:2, 3. ] 28 But if he is unable to redeem it, it shall remain in the buyer's possession until the Year of Jubilee, when it shall be set free and he may return to it. 29 If a man sells a dwelling house in a fortified city, he may redeem it within a whole year after it is sold; for a full year he may have the right of redemption. 30 And if it is not redeemed within a full year, then the house that is in the fortified city shall be made sure, permanently and without limitations, for him who bought it, throughout his generations. It shall not go free in the Year of Jubilee. 31 But the houses of the unwalled villages shall be counted with the fields of the country. They may be redeemed, and they shall go free in the Year of Jubilee. 32 Nevertheless, the cities of the Levites, the houses in the cities of their possession, the Levites may redeem at any time. 33 But if a house is not redeemed by a Levite, the sold house in the city they possess shall go free in the Year of Jubilee, for the houses in the Levite cities are their ancestral possession among the Israelites. 34 But the field of unenclosed or pasture lands of their cities may not be sold; it is their perpetual possession. 35 And if your [Israelite ] brother has become poor and his hand wavers [from poverty, sickness, or age and he is unable to support himself ], then you shall uphold (strengthen, relieve) him, [treating him with the courtesy and consideration that you would ] a stranger or a temporary resident with you [without property ], so that he may live [along ] with you. [I John 3:17. ] 36 Charge him no interest or [portion of ] increase, but fear your God, so your brother may [continue to ] live along with you. 37 You shall not give him your money at interest nor lend him food at a profit. 38 I am the Lord your God, Who brought you forth out of the land of Egypt to give you the land of Canaan and to be your God. 39 And if your brother becomes poor beside you and sells himself to you, you shall not compel him to serve as a bondman (a slave not eligible for redemption), 40 But as a hired servant and as a temporary resident he shall be with you; he shall serve you till the Year of Jubilee, 41 And then he shall depart from you, he and his children with him, and shall go back to his own family and return to the possession of his fathers. 42 For the Israelites are My servants; I brought them out of the land of Egypt; they shall not be sold as bondmen. [I Cor. 7:23. ] 43 You shall not rule over him with harshness (severity, oppression), but you shall [reverently ] fear your God. [Eph. 6:9; Col. 4:1. ] 44 As for your bondmen and your bondmaids whom you may have, they shall be from the nations round about you, of whom you may buy bondmen and bondmaids. 45 Moreover, of the children of the strangers who sojourn among you, of them you may buy and of their families that are with you which they have begotten in your land, and they shall be your possession. 46 And you shall make them an inheritance for your children after you, to hold for a possession; of them shall you take your bondmen always, but over your brethren the Israelites you shall not rule one over another with harshness (severity, oppression). 47 And if a sojourner or stranger with you becomes rich and your [Israelite ] brother becomes poor beside him and sells himself to the stranger or sojourner with you or to a member of the stranger's family, 48 After he is sold he may be redeemed. One of his brethren may redeem him: 49 Either his uncle or his uncle's son may redeem him, or a near kinsman may redeem him; or if he has enough and is able, he may redeem himself. 50 And [the redeemer ] shall reckon with the purchaser of the servant from the year when he sold himself to the purchaser to the Year of Jubilee, and the price of his release shall be adjusted according to the number of years. The time he was with his owner shall be counted as that of a hired servant. 51 If there remain many years [before the Year of Jubilee ], in proportion to them he must refund [to the purchaser ] for his release [the overpayment ] for his acquisition. 52 And if little time remains until the Year of Jubilee, he shall count it over with him and he shall refund the proportionate amount for his release. 53 And as a servant hired year by year shall he deal with him; he shall not rule over him with harshness (severity, oppression) in your sight [make sure of that ]. 54 And if he is not redeemed during these years and by these means, then he shall go free in the Year of Jubilee, he and his children with him. 55 For to Me the Israelites are servants, My servants, whom I brought forth out of the land of Egypt. I am the Lord your God.

The Lord has showed me an obelisk. I saw the large obelisk standing infront of the White House. And the Lord said to me: You shall not make for yourselves any obelisks, because if you do this I will punish you. Israel was punished and taken away into captivity, by the king of Babylon for 70 years. 70 Years according to the word of God to Daniel was determined for her. When the 70 years was completed the word came to Daniel, saying: Dan 9:25 Know therefore and understand that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem until [the coming of ] the Anointed One, a Prince, shall be seven weeks [of years ] and sixty-two weeks [of years ]; it shall be built again with [city ] square and moat, but in troublous times. The command was given to restore and build Jerusalem.

Then I prayed in tongues, asking God to teach me and to lead me into the full truth of these things which has been hidden for generations. Then the Lord said to me to break every yoke and every burden. Then the Lord spoke to me saying: 28 Come to Me, all you who labour and are heavy-laden and overburdened, and I will cause you to rest. [I will ease and relieve and refresh your souls. ] 29 Take My yoke upon you and learn of Me, for I am gentle (meek) and humble (lowly) in heart, and you will find rest (relief and ease and refreshment and recreation and blessed quiet) for your souls. [Jer. 6:16. ] 30 For My yoke is wholesome (useful, good--not harsh, hard, sharp, or pressing, but comfortable, gracious, and pleasant), and My burden is light and easy to be borne. (Matt 11:28-30 Ampl)

Then the Lord asked me: “What do you see?” I said: “See Jerusalem. I see the dome of the Rock. I see specifically the sign upon their temple, the dome of the rock, of the morning star in the crescent moon. I see how I am taken up into the heavens, from this point, looking up into heavens, leaving the earth, thank you Father. Come stand before Me, come stand before My throne, that I may whisper things into your ear.”

Out of the Ether comes the sweet

Remember what I showed you earlier. I showed you a vision of a carcass. And I asked you what do you see? And you said: “Lord I see a carcass. I see that it is the same carcass that Samson saw. He said: “Out of the ether came the sweet.” Then I said: “yes you have seen correctly. Out of this Great War, that will happen in Megiddo, out of this valley of dead bones, came a sweetness, which is the return of Israel. The Remnant of your people will be cleansed and purified and 70 years determined for you people will end. Therefore come and stand before Me now. Stand before Me in the heavens and I will tell you what will happen and what will come to pass in your days. Those things, which were hidden for ages and generations, from the eyes of many prophets and many peoples, who longed to look into them, but they could not find them. But your eyes will see. You eyes see and they understand. For 70 years were determined for your people. 70 years were determined for the Jewish people. And at the time of the end of the 70 years the remnant of the Jewish people will be ready to except their Messiah.

“What do you see?” I see a pillar Lord. I see the temple. Yes, you will stand in the Temple and in the porch and you will proclaim to them, saying: “70 Years was determined for you people! And Therefore YHWH says: “Comfort, comfort my people! They will hear a voice crying out in the Temple: “Saying comfort, comfort My people. I will give you great boldness from this day forward. No longer will you be holding back anything, in wisdom, as I give them to you. I will speak to your wife clearly and I will tell her the truth. And she will know the truth and she will allow you to speak all that I put on your heart to speak. And she will support you and encourage you.

Southern Africa: Set apart for such a time as this

“What do you see?” Lord I see a vision of something like? I see bulls running and pulling ox wagons or chariots. What does this mean Father? This represents your country. It represents the “Great Trek” The moving of the people, up from the Cape to the cities of Johannesburg and Pretoria, to Gauteng, as you known it now. Many were yoked together, but they stayed in unity, to accomplish all that was prophesied, according to your nation and your people.

And for many generations time has passed to come to such a time as this. For this time was determined in history, so that it would come to pass.

http://www.afrilux.co.za/quickies/South_Africa.htm“What do you see?” “Lord I see a very powerful engine, like something that cuts the grass, coming in, knowing it would cut off all grass and make it all level. I am pouring in my Spirit in Southern Africa. And I am bringing it in through your mouth. I am bringing a powerful engine, out of heaven, not from man, but out of heaven, to cut off and to level all grass. All the pride of men and all that they have trusted in. Prepare them for the great day of the Lord. Yes Father! Thank you Father that you are sending me, Lord, to this nation, Father! To this people, to speak the truth, which You have burnt into my heart, like a fire, Lord. Thank you Father that nothing will be able to stop Your works. Thank you that a wall of Fire is around me. Thank you that Your angels stand ready to go. To open the way and to prepare the way before You – Yahshua, even and you prepare the way before you servant. See Prophecy: Opening the Double Doors & Prophecy to Southern Africa & The Spirit of Elijah - Part 4 - God's Destiny for South Africa.

What do you see? I see bushes. I see something like wild trees. In my spirit you remind me of the birth of Koresh or Cyrus. The story that was told; how he was hidden in the bushes for a long time, until he had to come forth, and lead a nation. To be Your anointed One. I know Father that you have said to me that right now a time is coming when you will prepare Southern Africa, by Your Koresh, Your anointed One, by Zuma. I pray that You will prepare, Father, his heart. And even right now, as I speak, Father, of his heart, I prophecy to Koresh, the spirit of Koresh to come upon Zuma, Father, to accomplish all that You want to accomplish, for the sake of You Name and your Glory. May you be exalted Father. See the Prophecy: King Cyrus - Part 1 – God's King Cyrus.

Thank you Father, that you are moving all things into place. Father, that you are moving Southern Africa and South Africa into its place. Worthy are you my God. Thank you Yahshua! I worship You – Yahshua!

All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me and I can give to ever I am pleased to give it. I give it to those who obey Me and follow My words, who live according to My Spirit. O how sweet, how beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news.

I call to you, him who will bring good news. Those who will bring good news, they will stand on the mountain, for all nations will flow to them. And they will speak boldly and they will speak clearly. I will glorify My Name in and through them.

I am building the complete bridge. And the bridge is finished. Just as the Gautrain are like a huge bridge, I am preparing a bridge, between the nation of South Africa and the nations of this world. I am building a bridge. Prophecy to this bridge and say to this bridge: “Be built and be completed!” Then I prophesied: “Be built and be completed, I say to you!” Bridges from South Africa to all the nations of the world, for I will send you to the nations of the world. Look they wait in eager expectation. Many have been called, but few are chosen. Look I have chosen you to go. Now go in the strength you have."

I worship you, Yahshua. I love you – Yahshua! You are my first Love. You give me butterflies in my stomach. I love you, my God. Thank you that you are sending your angels out to all these places, to many peoples and nations; from this place Lord, even as I prophecy according to your command, Lord. You're sending them out Father. I worship you Great God, Lord of heaven and earth.

The Return of Moriah's people

You did not yet prophesied what I have said to you! Now I say: “Moriah, you who are in Pietersburg, situated on a hill, you shall be turned, and you shall return, to your God. And you shall know Him. For look I sent to you messengers and they will come to you. Will you know them in the time of God's favour, in the time of the release of His blessings. Therefore leave all that you have trusted in, that were not of Yahshua. Leave all that you have prayed to and all your idols that you have bowed to, for I have not found your works complete in the sight of my God. I have found you full of idols, which is witchcraft and idolatry. Weep, return from you wicked ways and I will have mercy on you. Yes I will turn and I will bless you, Moriah. Turn from your wicked ways, and then all those, who are rooted in you. All turn for God is with you and He will fight for you. But if you if you will not repent, I will remove your lampstand from its place.

Yes, look I am sending you now to many, to warn them in love and in truth. And I will give you specific words for each one of them. Do not hold back to speak these words. For they are timely and they will now come to pass, for those who obey. Yes Yahshua. For look I am making you a bronze wall and a fortified pillar. I making you one to built and to plant, but I am also making you one to tare up and to destroy. And I will send you to them and you will warn them for me and you will speak boldly the truth which you have always known and you will now follow. Thank you Father. You have spoken the truth and the truth will set you free.

The Lampstand and the Two Anointed Ones

2 And said to me, What do you see? I said, I see, and behold, a lampstand all of gold, with its bowl [for oil ] on the top of it and its seven lamps on it, and [there are ] seven pipes to each of the seven lamps which are upon the top of it. [Matt. 5:14, 16; Luke 12:35; Phil. 2:15; Rev. 1:20. ] 3 And there are two olive trees by it, one upon the right side of the bowl and the other upon the left side of it [feeding it continuously with oil ]. [Rev. 11:4-13. ] 4 So I asked the angel who talked with me, What are these, my lord? 5 Then the angel who talked with me answered me, Do you not know what these are? And I said, No, my lord. 6 Then he said to me, This [addition of the bowl to the candlestick, causing it to yield a ceaseless supply of oil from the olive trees ] is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit [of Whom the oil is a sy mbol ], says the Lord of hosts.

7 For who are you, O great mountain [of human obstacles ]? Before Zerubbabel [who with Joshua had led the return of the exiles from Babylon and was undertaking the rebuilding of the temple, before him ] you shall become a plain [a mere molehill ]! And he shall bring forth the finishing gable stone [of the new temple ] with loud shoutings of the people, crying, Grace, grace to it! [Ezra 4:1-5, 24; Isa. 40:4. ] 8 Moreover, the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 9 The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundations of this house; his hands shall also finish it. Then you shall know (recognize and understand) that the Lord of hosts has sent me [His messenger ] to you. 10 Who [with reason ] despises the day of small things? For these seven shall rejoice when they see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel. [These seven ] are the eyes of the Lord which run to and fro throughout the whole earth. [Rev. 5:6. ] 11 Then I said to him [the angel who talked with me ], What are these two olive trees on the right side of the lampstand and on the left side of it? 12 And a second time I said to him, What are these two olive branches which are beside the two golden tubes or spouts by which the golden oil is emptied out? 13 And he answered me, Do you not know what these are? And I said, No, my lord. 14 Then said he, These are the two sons of oil [Joshua the high priest and Zerubbabel the prince of Judah, the two anointed ones ] who stand before the Lord of the whole earth [as His anointed instruments ]. [Rev. 11:4. ] (Zech 4:2-14 Ampl)

The Flying Scroll

1 AGAIN I lifted up my eyes and behold, I saw a scroll flying or floating in the air! 2 And the angel said to me, What do you see? And I answered, I see a flying scroll; its length is twenty cubits or thirty feet and its breadth is ten cubits or fifteen feet. 3 Then he said to me, This is the curse that goes out over the face of the whole land; for everyone who steals shall be cut off from henceforth according to it [the curse written on this subject on the scroll ], and everyone who swears falsely shall be cut off from henceforth according to it.

[Isa. 24:6; Mal. 3:8, 9. ] 4 I will bring [the curse ] forth, says the Lord of hosts, and it shall enter into the house of the thief and into the house of him who swears falsely by My name; and it shall abide in the midst of his house and shall consume it, both its timber and its stones. 5 Then the angel who talked with me came forward and said to me, Lift up now your eyes and see what this is that goes forth. 6 And I said, What is it? [What does it symbolize? ] And he said, This that goes forth is an ephah[-sized vessel for separate grains all collected together ]. This, he continued, is the symbol of the sinners mentioned above and is the resemblance of their iniquity throughout the whole land. [Amos 8:5. ] 7 And behold, a round, flat weight of lead was lifted and there sat a woman in the midst of the ephah[-sized vessel ].

The Two Women with wings like Storks

8 And he said, This is lawlessness (wickedness)! And he thrust her back into the ephah[-sized vessel ] and he cast the weight of lead upon the mouth of it! 9 Then lifted I up my eyes and looked, and behold, there were two women coming forward! The wind was in their wings, for they had wings like the wings of a stork, and they lifted up the ephah[-sized vessel ] between the earth and the heavens. 10 Then said I to the angel who talked with me, Where are they taking the ephah[-sized vessel ]? 11 And he said to me, To the land of Shinar [Babylonia ] to build it a house, and when it is finished, to set up the ephah[-sized vessel--the symbol of such sinners and their guilt ] there upon its own base. (Zech 5:1-11 Ampl)

Look says the Lord, they are building a train for it. A train is bringing in the bombs. It is hidden in its cars and it is brought in on a railway. Although no one knows it, although it is riding in secret, God says: “My eyes roam through out all the world and I know the truth.” I see it! I see it being brought in on a railway. The bomb and all its parts are brought in and it is built and it is made ready. But look says the Lord: “It will accomplish nothing. It will not come to pass as they plan, for their plans will be thwarted and their plans will not succeed, for the time will still come at the appointed time, the time appointed by YHWH for them.

Sharping a Sword against Jerusalem

“O' Jerusalem, Jerusalem, If only you have known the time of you favour of you Lord, when He was sent to you. Even then you did not recognize Him and even now you have remained blinded. O' weep Jerusalem, weep between the porch and the altar. Weep and fall on you knees before you God, for look, when I sent them, I said: Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets, you who slay those who were sent to you. Look you house is left to you desolate. And you will see Me no more, until you say: “Baruch habba beshem Adonai!” Blessed is He who comes in the Name of Yahshua, for you were not willing and you did not receive me. When I was sent to you, neither will they receive them when they are sent to them. But I sent them to say: “Shalom, Shalom!” Look I am sharpening a sword, I am sharpening a blade; I am sharpening a mighty and a powerful sword against you Jerusalem. Right now it is prepared. It will slay you children; it will slay your daughters and your sons; it will slay your whole land. A sword is sent into you like a fire, it will burn continually until it has consumed all your timbers and all you idols are burnt to the ground. That which you have trusted in, it will be burnt to the ground and removed. It will become as nothing. Look, take the cup which I give you, to drink it. Son of Man prophecy to Jerusalem and say to her: “Drink this cup. Drink it to the full! Drink its dregs; drink it to the bottom. And you will drink it, for I will pour out My wrath in the fullness upon you Jerusalem. I will come in like a flood and I will remove your pride and your arrogance in a moment. How I have longed like a mother to gather you as chicks under My wings, but you will not willing. Therefore I say to you: “All your timber, all your sand stone it will be made like powder and like dust. It will be like dust in the streets. It will be trampled. Faces of men will be filled with the ash and the dust in the street. Men will lie in the street, not buried! They will not be buried! Even your blood I will cover with dust. O' just t site of it Lord! O'!

Look I will lift over you a cobra, a great and mighty cobra I will lift over your city. It will stand in the heavens and it will strike at you people down below. It will strike t them, continually, like a venomous snake. For look I will measure you in those days. I will measure you. I will measure your clans and your peoples. I will measure every house with a measuring line. Those who trusted in Me: “I will measure them; their faith will be purified and they will be made white, in YHWH!”

AH-64 ApacheBut those who did not trust in YHWH, but trusted in Kabala; who trusted in their alliances with the nations of the east, and the nations of the west; all their spoil and plunder will be plundered and made to plunder. The walls of your cities will be broken. The cities will be poured out like dust in the streets. The sound of tanks will be heard between your walls. The vibrations will make the walls crack and fall. For the God of all the earth has a controversy with you Jerusalem. He has a controversy with you, because you did not listen, nor paid attention. For I say to you: “Look your 70 years have come to an end. Now is the time of your salvation. But you still would not. You relentlessly stiffened your neck and hardened you heart. Therefore I too will harden my hand and I will strike you with My fist and I will crush you to the ground. Yes war helicopters will fly through you; billows of smoke will go up from you all over the place as bombs are dropped in you.

Their will be a weeping and a screaming. And they will say: “Why? Why had YHWH done this to us?” Because you worship other gods and say that you worship Me. Then I wept. Again the Lord said: “You say that you worship Me!”

I will deal with you according to the measure that you have dealt with Me. Look the end will come with a flood. It will come with streams of missiles and bombs and shooting and arrows be flying. Look I raise against you a great bow! In those days it will be like it was said by the prophets. I will cause many hunters to hunt you to bring you out of your nations and their will be a great returning to Yisrael. Look my Son, a time has now come, when you will speak all that I say to you. And all that I tell you to tell them you will tell them.

“What do you see?” I see man like sick in the street. They are like lepers Lord. Even the cloths that cover them are old and rugged. It has no more use to cover the wounds. Their wounds are incurable, their hearts are sick. From the top their heads to the tip of their toes, there is no healing. There is no healing Father! There is no physician Lord, to heal them, Father!

The Voice of a Trumpet

Yes they tried many times to steal, that which I have told you to do. And even the enemy thwarted you many times, but they never could steal from you that which was placed in your heart. Look I am anointing your mouth. Look I have made you righteous. And look you will speak all that I put in your mouth to speak against the nations and against the peoples. You will prophecy to many nations and to many peoples once again.

“What do you see?” Lord I see a mighty angel, standing between the land and the sea. I see that His hands are lifted up. He's shouting out with a mighty voice like a voice of a trumpet.

And He says: “No longer! No longer will the curse of God be withheld from the earth. No longer will the yoke of the burden that were on the necks of the people remain. No longer will they remain without guilt, for their guilt will now be spoken of, for if they were not spoken of, they would not be guilty of sin.

Now they will be guilty, for you will speak all that I have commanded you to speak to them; and you will eat this scroll from the hand of the angel, who stand between the heaven and the earth. Who stand between the land and t sea, with His hand lifted up. And you will eat and it will fill you stomach. And it will fill your stomach.

“What do you see?” I see lightning striking, Father, out of the heavens. I see the 7 thunders and I see the 7th lightning strike. What is in the 7 th Lighting, Father? “You know!” This is the seventh trumpet that must blow, when the final revelation of God will be completed, and the fullness of the Glory of God's revelation on earth, will be revealed or will be accomplished, at the last trumpet, in the wink of an eye.

“What do you see?” I see a great vision of the top of the highest mountains in the world and I see that I have reached the tip of the ice berg Lord. I see that I look down now and I look back, with full realization Lord that you have shown me all these things and all will now be accomplished. I worship you Yahshua. Thank you that you are the one who open the doors, Father! Who bless us, and bless indeed Lord!

Trusting in Sticks and Stones

Say to South Africa: “The emblem which you have made and which you trust in saying that the phoenix has arise, trusting in your sticks and your arrows. Say to them: “sticks and stones can not break my bones, for God is my strength and My deliverer.

But you, by that which you have trusted in, with that you will be destroyed. That which you hold on to, that will be your broken reed, that will be like a broken staff, like snake that bite you in the heel, when you do not expect it to come.

For look I send upon you a wind, a very dry wind, you will become dry and their will be no rain falling on you it that time. Dry wind will blow over you. Your lands will not produce its crops. No rain will fall in that time, because you have hardened your heart 7 times over. Therefore I will punish you 7 times more. And if you still do not repent I will punish you 7 times more, till I have removed you from the face of the earth. If you repent I will turn and have mercy on you, for I am great and gracious and merciful to those who obey me. Yes Father.

God confirms His Word through the prophet Joel

1 THE WORD of the Lord that came to Joel the son of Pethuel. 2 Hear this, you aged men, and give ear, all you inhabitants of the land! Has such a thing as this occurred in your days or even in the days of your fathers? 3 Tell your children of it, and let your children tell their children, and their children another generation. 4 What the crawling locust left, the swarming locust has eaten; and what the swarming locust left, the hopping locust has eaten; and what the hopping locust left, the stripping locust has eaten. 5 Awake, you drunkards, and weep; wail, all you drinkers of wine, because of the [fresh ] sweet juice [of the grape ], for it is cut off and removed from your mouth. 6 For a [heathen and hostile ] nation [of locusts, illustrative of a human foe ] has invaded My land, mighty and without number; its teeth are the teeth of a lion, and it has the jaw teeth of a lioness. [Rev. 9:7, 8. ] 7 It has laid waste My vine [symbol of God's people ] and barked and broken My fig tree; it has made them completely bare and thrown them down; their branches are made white. [Isa. 5:5, 6. ] 8 Lament like a virgin [bride ] girded with sackcloth for the husband of her youth [who has died ]. 9 The meal or cereal offering and the drink offering are cut off from the house of the Lord; the priests, the Lord's ministers, mourn. 10 The field is laid waste, the ground mourns; for the grain is destroyed, the new juice [of the grape ] is dried up, the oil fails. 11 Be ashamed, O you tillers of the soil; wail, O you vinedressers, for the wheat and for the barley, because the harvest of the field has perished. 12 The vine is dried up and the fig tree fails; the pomegranate tree, the palm tree also, and the apple or quince tree, even all the trees of the field are withered, so that joy has withered and fled away from the sons of men. 13 Gird yourselves and lament, you priests; wail, you ministers of the altar; come, lie all night in sackcloth, you ministers of my [Joel's ] God, for the cereal or meal offering and the drink offering are withheld from the house of your God. 14 Sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly, gather the elders and all the inhabitants of the land in the house of the Lord, your God, and cry to the Lord [in penitent pleadings ]. 15 Alas for the day! For the day of [the judgment of ] the Lord is at hand, and as a destructive tempest from the Almighty will it come. [Zeph. 1:14-18. ] 16 Is not the food cut off before our eyes, joy and gladness from the house of our God? 17 The seed [grain ] rots and shrivels under the clods, the garners are desolate and empty, the barns are in ruins because the grain has failed. 18 How the beasts groan! The herds of cattle are perplexed and huddle together because they have no pasture; even the flocks of sheep suffer punishment (are forsaken and made wretched). 19 O Lord, to You will I cry, for the fire has devoured the pastures and folds of the plain and the wilderness, and flame has burned all the trees of the field. 20 Even the wild beasts of the field pant and cry to You, for the water brooks are dried up and fire has consumed the pastures and folds of the wilderness and the plain. (Joel 1:1-20 Ampl)

1 BLOWTHE trumpet in Zion; sound an alarm on My holy Mount [Zion ]. Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble, for the day of [the judgment of ] the Lord is coming; it is close at hand--[Ezek. 7:2-4; Amos 5:16-20. ] 2 A day of darkness and gloom, a day of clouds and of thick mists and darkness, like the morning dawn spread upon the mountains; so there comes a [heathen, hostile ] people numerous and mighty, the like of which has never been before and shall not be again even to the years of many generations. 3 A fire devours before them, and behind them a flame burns; the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yes, and none has escaped [the ravages of the devouring hordes ]. 4 Their appearance is like the appearance of horses, and like war horses and horsemen, so do they run. 5 Like the noise of chariots on the tops of the mountains they leap--like the noise of a flame of fire devouring the stubble, like a mighty people set in battle array. [Rev. 9:7, 9. ] 6 Before them the peoples are in anguish; all faces become pale. 7 They run like mighty men; they climb the wall like men of war. They march each one [straight ahead ] on his ways, and they do not break their ranks. 8 Neither does one thrust upon another; they walk every one in his path. And they burst through and upon the weapons, yet they are not wounded and do not change their course. 9 They leap upon the city; they run upon the wall; they climb up on and into the houses; they enter in at the windows like a thief. 10 The earth quakes before them; the heavens tremble. The sun and the moon are darkened and the stars withdraw their shining. [Rev. 9:2-4; 16:14. ] 11 And the Lord utters His voice before His army, for His host is very great, and [they are ] strong and powerful who execute [God's ] word. For the day of the Lord is great and very terrible, and who can endure it? [Isa. 26:20, 21; 34:1-4, 8; Rev. 6:16, 17. ] 12 Therefore also now, says the Lord, turn and keep on coming to Me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning [until every hindrance is removed and the broken fellowship is restored ]. 13 Rend your hearts and not your garments and return to the Lord, your God, for He is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and abounding in loving-kindness; and He revokes His sentence of evil [when His conditions are met ]. 14 Who knows but what He will turn, revoke your sentence [of evil ], and leave a blessing behind Him [giving you the means with which to serve Him ], even a cereal or meal offering and a drink offering for the Lord, your God? 15 Blow the trumpet in Zion; set apart a fast [a day of restraint and humility ]; call a solemn assembly. 16 Gather the people, sanctify the congregation; assemble the elderly people, gather the children and the nursing infants; let the bridegroom [who is legally exempt from attending ] go forth from his chamber and the bride out of her closet. [None is exempt from the humiliation. ] 17 Let the priests, the ministers of the Lord, weep between the porch and the altar; and let them say, Have pity and spare Your people, O Lord, and give not Your heritage to reproach, that the [heathen ] nations should rule over them or use a byword against them. Why should they say among the peoples, Where is their God? 18 Then was the Lord jealous for His land and had pity on His people. 19 Yes, the Lord answered and said to His people, Behold, I am sending you grain and juice [of the grape ] and oil, and you shall be satisfied with them; and I will no more make you a reproach among the [heathen ] nations. 20 But I will remove far off from you the northern [destroyer's ] army and will drive it into a land barren and desolate, with its front toward the eastern [Dead ] Sea and with its rear toward the western [Mediterranean ] Sea. And its stench shall come up [like that of a decaying mass of locusts, a symbol and forecast of the fate of the northern army in the final day of the Lord ], and its foul odour shall come up, because He has done great things [the Lord will have destroyed the invaders ]! [Isa. 34:1-4, 8; Jer. 25:31-35; Joel 2:11. ] 21 Fear not, O land; be glad and rejoice, for the Lord has done great things! [Zech. 12:8-10. ] 22 Be not afraid, you wild beasts of the field, for the pastures of the wilderness have sprung up and are green; the tree bears its fruit, and the fig tree and the vine yield their [full ] strength. 23 Be glad then, you children of Zion, and rejoice in the Lord, your God; for He gives you the former or early rain in just measure and in righteousness, and He causes to come down for you the rain, the former rain and the latter rain, as before. 24 And the [threshing ] floors shall be full of grain and the vats shall overflow with juice [of the grape ] and oil. 25 And I will restore or replace for you the years that the locust has eaten--the hopping locust, the stripping locust, and the crawling locust, My great army which I sent among you. 26 And you shall eat in plenty and be satisfied and praise the name of the Lord, your God, Who has dealt wondrously with you. And My people shall never be put to shame. 27 And you shall know, understand, and realize that I am in the midst of Israel and that I the Lord am your God and there is none else. My people shall never be put to shame. 28 And afterward I will pour out My Spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions. 29 Even upon the menservants and upon the maidservants in those days will I pour out My Spirit. 30 And I will show signs and wonders in the heavens, and on the earth, blood and fire and columns of smoke. 31 The sun shall be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the great and terrible day of the Lord comes. [Isa. 13:6, 9-11; 24:21-23; Ezek. 32:7-10; Matt. 24:29, 30; Rev. 6:12-17. ] 32 And whoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered and saved, for in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be those who escape, as the Lord has said, and among the remnant [of survivors ] shall be those whom the Lord calls. [Acts 2:17-21; Rom. 10:13. ] (Joel 2:1-32 Ampl)

1 FOR BEHOLD, in those days and at that time when I shall reverse the captivity and restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem, 2 I will gather all nations and will bring them down into the Valley of Jehoshaphat, and there will I deal with and execute judgment upon them for [their treatment of ] My people and of My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations and [because ] they have divided My land. 3 And they have cast lots for My people, and have given a boy for a harlot and have sold a girl for juice [of the grape ] and have drunk it. 4 Yes, and what are you to Me, O Tyre and Sidon and all the [five small ] divisions of Philistia? Will you pay Me back for something? Even if you pay Me back, swiftly and speedily I will return your deed [of retaliation ] upon your own head, [Isa. 23; Ezek. 26:1-18; Amos 1:6-10; Zeph. 2:4-7; Zech. 9:2-7. ] 5 Because you have taken My silver and My gold and have carried into your temples and palaces My precious treasures, 6 And have sold the children of Judah and the children of Jerusalem to the sons of the Grecians, that you may remove them far from their border. 7 Behold, I will stir them up out of the place to which you have sold them and will return your deed [of retaliation ] upon your own head. 8 I will sell your sons and your daughters into the hand of the children of Judah, and they will sell them to the Sabeans, to a nation far off, for the Lord has spoken it. [Isa. 14:2; 60:14. ] 9 Proclaim this among the nations: Prepare war! Stir up the mighty men! Let all the men of war draw near, let them come up. 10 Beat your ploughshares into swords, and your pruning hooks into spears; let the weak say, I am strong [a warrior ]! [Isa. 2:4; Mic. 4:3. ] 11 Hasten and come, all you nations round about, and assemble yourselves; there You, O Lord, will bring down Your mighty ones (Your warriors). 12 Let the nations bestir themselves and come up to the Valley of Jehoshaphat, for there will I sit to judge all the nations round about. 13 Put in the sickle, for the [vintage ] harvest is ripe; come, get down and tread the grapes, for the winepress is full; the vats overflow, for the wickedness [of the peoples ] is great. [Mark 4:29; Rev. 14:15, 18-20. ] 14 Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision. [Zech. 14:1-9. ] 15 The sun and the moon are darkened and the stars withdraw their shining. 16 The Lord will thunder and roar from Zion and utter His voice from Jerusalem, and the heavens and the earth shall shake; but the Lord will be a refuge for His people and a stronghold to the children of Israel. [Amos 9:11-15; Mic. 4:1-3; 5:2; Zeph. 3:13-20; Zech. 6:12, 13; 12:8, 9. ] 17 So shall you know, understand, and realize that I am the Lord your God, dwelling in Zion, My holy mountain. Then shall Jerusalem be holy, and strangers and foreigners [not born into the family of God ] shall no more pass through it. 18 And in that day, the mountains shall drip with fresh juice [of the grape ] and the hills shall flow with milk; and all the brooks and riverbeds of Judah shall flow with water, and a fountain shall come forth from the house of the Lord and shall water the Valley of Shittim. [Ezek. 47:1-12; Amos 9:13; Zech. 14:8. ] 19 Egypt shall be a desolation and Edom shall be a desolate wilderness for their violence against the children of Judah, because they have shed innocent blood in their land. 20 But Judah shall remain and be inhabited forever, and Jerusalem from generation to generation. 21 And I will cleanse and hold as innocent their blood and avenge it, blood which I have not cleansed, held innocent, and avenged, for the Lord dwells in Zion. (Joel 3:1-21 Ampl)

Praise the Name of YHWH, for YHWH has shown us all that is about to come to pass in the earth!
