When Nations turn against Israel

Recommended Posts

Zechariah 12:1 "The burden of the word of the Lord for Israel, saith the Lord, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him."

Zechariah means "remembered by God", in the Hebrew. We will see that from here to the end of the book, "the Lord's Day" is given many times. This is to remind us this book is written for all those living in the final generation. This twelfth chapter is a divine declaration, not a "burden". It is an oracle about the people of Israel.

The title given our Lord here is very descriptive. It is declaring God's handiwork in creation of heaven, and the earth; and His work in the "forming of the spirit of man".

Zechariah 12:2 "Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem."

God said He is going to make Jerusalem a cup of intoxication [trembling] against all the people. Though there has been three sieges already against Jerusalem, historically this verse is directed to a particular siege, which is to come about in the last seven years of this earth age. This siege of Jerusalem is by the Antichrist, his offspring [the Kenites], and his followers [including the fallen angels]. The end of this siege will be at the seventh trumpet, when our Lord Jesus Christ returns. That day is the "day of the Lord".

In Revelation 20, we are told again of this time when Jerusalem will come under siege, and following that siege, Our Lord will return and set up His Millennium kingdom.

Zechariah 12:3 "And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it."

"That day" again is the "day of the Lord", when the seventh trumpet sounds. This "burdensome stone" that Jerusalem will become, is a stone to hard to lift or move. It is not the type or size of a stone that can be lifted or thrown. This is the only place in the Scriptures Jerusalem is called "the burdensome stone."

The prophesies that all nations will come against Jerusalem, is very true historically. Starting with Babylon, then Assyria, Persia, Rome, Egypt, Greece, and in more recent times Spain and in the near future, The Antichrist and Russia. When Antichrist is in Jerusalem, there will not be many against the city, because they will all be worshipping the Antichrist there. That will be a siege of an "abomination" [spoken of also in Daniel 9:27, and by Jesus in Matthew 24:15] against Jerusalem. This is far worse than any of the other sieges.

Zechariah 12:4 "In that day, saith the Lord, I will smite every horse with astonishment, and his rider with madness: and I will open mine eyes upon the house of Judah, and will smite every horse of the people with blindness."

Here is the reference again to that "Day of the Lord". When God moves against the city, for the protection of His children [the Jews, not the Kenites], there will be sure panic. the Kenites will be without protection, and astonished, for their lies and deceit will be revealed.

Remember in Revelation 11:11 when the two witnesses were slain in the streets of Jerusalem? This is a reference to the reactions of that time. It is the time at the end of that three and a half day period, that the witnesses will be slain. God will place life back in them, and the witnesses come to their feet, "a great fear fell upon them [sure panic]". That "fear" in the original Greek text is "Epipipto", and it is a "paralyzing fear".

Revelation 11:11 "And after three days and an half the spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them."

The real shock for the people of this earth will be in the minds of all the Christians who were caught up in the Antichrist's lies. They were not prepared for the lies of Satan and were deceived into his world wide religious system. Now the full effect of their shame will fall right upon them.

Zechariah 12:5 "And the governors of Judah shall say in their heart, The inhabitants of Jerusalem shall be my strength in the Lord of hosts their God."

Where do you get your strength? The only strength to give support to mankind in these final days and times of trouble, is that which God supplies.

Zechariah 12:6 "In that day will I make the governors of Judah like an hearth of fire in a sheaf; and they shall devour all the people round about, on the right hand and on the left: and Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place, even in Jerusalem."

This prophecy has not come to pass yet, But at our Lord's return, these "governors" [the Antichrist's leaders] will be like a pan over a large pile of wood that has been torched. They will be burned by God's people on the last day of this earth age.

Zechariah 12:7 "The Lord also shall save the tents of Judah first, that the glory of the house of David and the glory of the inhabitants of Jerusalem do not magnify themselves against Judah."

The true bloodline of Judah will be restored to their leadership first, and they will be reestablished as the king line over all the other tribes. All other tribes, of all Israelites will look to Judah as their leaders, and the "Kenites" will be smitten, and removed from Jerusalem, and all those Kenite lines of authority.

Zechariah 12:8 "In that day shall the Lord defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the house of David shall be as God, as the angel of the Lord before them."

This is the "day of the Lord", and in I Corinthians 15:52 Paul tells us that "at the last trump we shall all be changed". In the twinkling [wink] of an eye we shall shed these physical flesh and blood bodies, and put on immortal bodies. This is why even the most feeble of Jerusalem will have the strength of David, and David will be as God [In his immortal and incorruptible body].

I Corinthians 15:52 "In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed."

Zechariah 12:9 "And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem."

On that "Day of the Lord" Jesus Christ returns to earth and He will bind Satan, the Antichrist, all the things of the flesh and all of his fallen angels. All the peoples of every nation on earth will gather in Jerusalem to make war with our Lord Jesus Christ.

Zechariah 12:10 "And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn."

This verse is directed to both houses [nations]; "the House of Judah" [the Jews], and "the House of Israel" [Christians]. The time of Zechariah's writing this was about 500 years prior to Jesus Christ's death on the cross. The Lord is telling us through Zechariah that He would be pierced, or thrust through with a spear, so His Spirit of Grace could be offered to both Houses, Israel and Judah.

God's word is perfect; and when Jesus was asked a question to trip Him up, His answer always started; "It is written...", and that is the same reason why we need to know His Word.

When all the people on the face of this earth see Christ at His return at the last trumpet, we are told in Revelation 1:7; "Behold, he cometh with clouds [the heavenly hosts]; and every eye shall see [and know] Him, and they also which pierced Him: and all kindred's of the earth shall wail because of Him. Even so, Amen". This is Jesus Christ's second coming, and the event of Zechariah 12:10.

Upon the arrival of the Antichrist [Satan, the falling star], at the fifth trumpet [Revelation 9:1], it will be in the same manner, and a counterfeit of similar events [the white horses] as to what Christians expect from the arrival of the true Messiah [Christ]. If a Christian does not know this at the time of Satan's arrival, he will be deceived. In ignorance he will fall in love with Satan. In fact, Jesus said that he will be so convinced that he will drag his family and friends also to the Antichrist.

Then when the true Christ, Jesus Christ comes that Christian will see Him in far more splendor then when the Antichrist came, and he will be shamed for what he has done. All those Christians who have bowed to Satan will be rejected by Christ for playing the role of the harlot, and the "mourning and wailing" will be because you were deceived by the Antichrist and his Kenite children, into marrying the wrong Christ. We are living in the generation this verse of Zechariah is aimed at.

Zechariah 12:11 "In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem, as the mourning of Hadadrimmon [Ha-dad-rim'-mon] in the valley of Megiddon."

Once again, as in this whole chapter, it is bringing us to the "Day of the Lord"; the last day of this earth age. Let's try to understand a few important things here. The "valley of Megiddon", is also called "Megiddo". The meaning of this word "Megiddo" in the Hebrew is "the gathering point". Megiddo is the area in the tiny nation of Israel where people from the entire earth shall gather for the final battle, which is referred to as the battle of "Armageddon" in the religious community.

The purpose of gathering at Megiddo is to go to war against our Lord and Savior, when He comes with the hosts of the heavens [you know, mom and pop who have died and gone to be with Him]. This gathering also took place because of the celebrations going on in the streets of Jerusalem because of the murdering of the two witnesses by Satan. Satan is ruling from Jerusalem, and this is also when and where he has just declared himself to be God which is "the abomination by the desolator".

This is also the final day that the Antichrist will have any powers over mankind, for his deceitfulness will be revealed on that day, and he will be removed. Ezekiel 38 and 39 discuss the details of that battle, along with the battle of Hammon-gog. The Millennium age will start on this day, the "Day of the Lord".

Who is Israel? Who is the Church?

Lorraine Day, M.D.
 

The Doctrine of Dispensationalism states that the Church of Christ, which was born on the day of Pentecost as recorded in Acts 2

Well, not quite.  Many folks see the ekklesia as being conceived at Pentacost by the Holy Spirit and has been growing for the last 2000 years, and is about to be born, as per Revelation 12 and caught up to the throne room of YHWH. 

Israel is the woman in Revelation 12.  It was in Jerusalem, the center of Israel, that the ekklesia was conceived.  It will be born at the start of shortly thereafter of the Tribulation period, and be caught up (harpazo) to heaven.  Some see Revelation 12 as speaking of the Messiah, and it is. But also, the ekklesia is the body of Messiah.   And like Revelation 12:5 says that He will rule with a rod of iron, it also says that those who overcome (the ekklesia) will also rule with a rod of iron along side of the Messiah in Revelation 2:26-27.   

And per Revelation 12, after she gives birth, she flees into the wilderness to be protected from the dragon who has been cast down to the earth.

And per Revelation 12, after she gives birth, she flees into the wilderness to be protected from the dragon who has been cast down to the earth.

Rev. 12:1 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:

Interpreting "And there appeared a great wonder in heaven;"

Heaven is not the physical space of the Universe (sky), but CELESTIAL PLACES in Christ (Ephesians 1:v.3) 

In this Dispensation of Grace or in this CELESTIAL PLACE or yet heavenly place of the New Covenant or New Testament, who really is within of this celestial place is the Church, the believers in Christ, Jews and much much more Gentiles, the body of Christ, not the nation of Israel.  By allegory, the woman is a symbol of the Church, not of a nation, absolutely.  The woman mentioned in Rev. 12:v.1 is the Church of Christ in whole Earth, clothed with the sun (clothed with the light of the sun/illuminated by the sunlight - that is by JESUS, the Sun of Justice , the Greater Light of the fourth Day). The woman is the Church, the body of Christ, not the nation of Israel.  

Interpreting : "and the moon under her feet..."

The moon is the Lesser Light of the fourth Day, the moon is also illuminated by the sun.  In this version of Scripture (Rev.12:v.1) the moon is by allegory the Holy Spirit under the feet of the woman (the Church of Christ) , it is he who from the beginning feeds the woman and sustains her with the word of God, the testimony of Jesus and of the 12 Apostles in these 2,000 years of the Church's existence.

Interpreting : and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:

The twelve stars are the 12 Apostles of the Lord JESUS Christ, which will sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel, as JESUS said:

Matthew 19:27-28 

27 Then answered Peter and said unto Him, Behold, we have forsaken all, and followed thee; what shall we have therefore?

28 And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his Glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel,

JESUS came in the fourth Day of Creation or around 4.000 years after the creation of Adam. From JESUS (fourth Day) until our days, have passed more two Days or 2000 years, totalizing 6 complete Days or six millenniums, or around 6.000 years, more precisely 6.018 years, conform Christian Calendar pointing the year  2.018. We are living in the beginning of the first century of the seventh and last millennium, or seventh and last Day of God's time, that is the Great Sabbath, the Millennium of Christ, the Millennium of Truth, the Millennium of Judgment, the Judgment Seat of Christ, the Millennium of Vengeance. The world of Devil is already Judged and Condemned, and now, in this seventh and last millennium, it will be punished with strong punishments, there will be only and only punishments in this last Day, the Day of the Lord, the Lord JESUS, King of kings and LORD of lords.

And God Father has already entered in His rest, as He had planned in the beginning of His works, but He is not sleeping, of course, and JESUS assume the government of the Universe. JESUS is now sat on His Tribunal, the Judgment Seat of Christ, to Judge all nations, taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not His gospel, who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the Glory of His Power.

The kingdoms of THIS WORLD are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of His Christ; and He will reign for ever and ever. (Rev.11:15)
v.18 And the nations were angry
(Gog, and Magog - Rev. 13:1-18), and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and should DESTROY them which destroy the earth. (Woe of them now, even now, from now on)

Remember: The kingdom of God comes not with observation, neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force.   Rev.12:7-11 says: And there was war in heaven (heaven(s) is/are not the physical space of the Universe-(sky), but celestial place(s) in Christ or Dispensations as is written in Eph.1:v.3) : Michael and his angels fought against the Dragon; (yea, the red Dragon - Rev.12:v.3) and the Dragon fought and his angels, and prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And they (Michael and his angels) overcame him (overcome Satan and his angels) by the blood of the Lamb (by the blood of JESUS, which purifies of all sins), and by the word of their testimony; and they, loved not their lives unto the death. (Yes, they loved not their lives unto the death)

Again: The kingdoms OF THIS WORLD are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of His Christ; and He will reign for ever and ever:Rev.11:15.  

v.18 And the nations were angry (Gog, and Magog - Rev. 13:1-18), and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and should DESTROY them which destroy the earth. (Woe of them now, yes even now, and from now on)

Rev. 5:v.10 - And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.

JESUS left very clear saying: Luke 20:35-36 - 
35 But they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage: 36 Neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the angels; and are the children of God, being the children of the resurrection.

Rev. 20:v.6 - Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years. 

As is written above, JESUS came in the fourth Day of God's Creation

Based in the Word of God, the source of the Truth, on God's six Days of creation and one Day of rest (a total of seven Days) plus the Scriptures that teach that one Day is with the Lord as a thousand years (Psalm 90:4; II Pet. 3:8; Heb. 4:4) so MANKIND will go through six God Days of 1,000 years each (a total of 6,000 years) plus a Millennium of 1,000 years rest (now a total of 7,000 years).

In accord biblical Chronology, we can number our days, beginning in Genesis chap.5, as follow::
Adam lived …..................................................130 yrs and begat Seth
Seth lived  ......................................................105 yrs  and begat Enosh; 
Enosh lived .....................................................90 yrs  and begat Kenan; 
Kenan lived......................................................70 yrs  and begat Mahalalel; 
Mahalalel lived ...............................................65 yrs  and begat Jared; 
Jared lived .....................................................162 yrs  and begat Enoch; 
Enoch lived .....................................................65 yrs  and begat Methuselah; 
Methuselah lived...........................................187 yrs  and begat Lamech; 
Lamech lived .................................................182 yrs and begat Noah; 
From Noah´s birth until the Flood..............600 yrs.
Total of yrs from Adam to the Flood = .....1,656 yrs.

I work with the Word of God. Notice that the table above is proved by the Word of God, it is not of human theories or human speculations. Let us study the times until our days not by human theories and speculations, but by the Word of God. So, see the table below:

PERIODS OF BIBLICAL TIMES --------------------------DURATION
I - From Adam until the Flood-------------------------1,656  years (as showed above)
II - From the Flood until Abraham-----------------------427  years
III - From Abraham until Exodus------------------------430  years
IV - From Exodus until king Saul ------------------------396  years
V - From Saul until the fall of Jerusalem ------------------508  years
VI - From the fall of Jerusalem until Jesus -----------------587  years
Thus, from Adam until the 1st coming of Jesus ------------4,004  years
From Jesus until our days (Christian Calendar)-------------2,018 years
Total from Adam until our days ------------------------6,022 years

We are living in the beginning of the first century of the seventh and last millennium or last Day

In Christ JESUS, KING of kings and LORD of lords

It is allegory to an extreme to make the case that the Apostles are the twelve stars.  Many scholars clear back to the early Church fathers all stated that the woman with the sun and twelve stars and moon at her feet is a reference to Genesis 37:9-11.  That is the only reference that is similar to the Revelation 12 account.  

We will likely never agree.  I am not into gnostic allegorical scripture interpretation.  Neither were the Apostles or the early church fathers.  Augustine and Origen really screwed things up.

Right: all allegory does is allow one to define prophecy any way they wish.

Don't need allegory, personal bias defines terms sans devices.

Yes, perhaps so, but this doesn't answer why America is not mentioned in Revelation. Or why it won't be protecting Israel. Perhaps this is God's will as He will be the Jews sole protector.

America is not mentioned because I suspect it isn't as key as many of us Americans seem to believe. We are an ally now. So all we can go off is the generic "allies" in the Bible. So come the end times we must be one of 4 things imo 1)Severely Crippled, 2) Wiped out entirely, 3) Evil/actively hostile to israel 4)Ignoring them "just cause" the least likely option of the 4 I'd say. So it ain't looking pretty for us imo. Bible to my knowledge has never focused on any "america" like land (I could be mistaken), so I have never understood why so many people think we're some chosen nation of God. We're a nation like any other. Just the ones with the biggest guns lol.

America is very much in prophecy

Ezekiel 38:8 "After many days thou shalt be visited: in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them."

the United States paid seven million dollars for the land that these mighty armies of Russia and her allies will be killed. I'm talking about Seward's Folly, and the purchase of Alaska for the United States. We are the House of Israel mentioned here, and the "mountains" are the nations and peoples of today which are the offspring from that old "House of Israel". We are referring to the Christian nations of today.

Ezekiel 38:9 "Thou shalt ascend and come like a storm, thou shalt be like a cloud to cover the land, thou, and all thy bands, and many people with thee."

This force will be so big and massive in force, that no earthly force anywhere could offer any resistance to it; for America, England and all Christians will have followed the Kenites instructions to disarm.

Ezekiel 38:10 "Thus saith the Lord God; It shall also come to pass, that at the same time shall things come into thy mind, and thou shalt think an evil thought:"

Ezekiel 38:11 "And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates,"

Where ever you tour in the world you will find the walls of the olden times. In fact even today the borders between most nations are very closely guarded. However, amongst the Christian nations of Western Europe and the Americas, the people dwell in safety, and enjoy the free flow of traffic and trade. This is a period of one worldism, and America is becoming totally unprepared for what is about to happen. However the elect of God will be prepared, for that knowledge will be sealed in their minds.

Ezekiel 38:12 "To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn thine hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the People that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land."

This verse is directed only to America, and it could not be any part of that tiny nation of Israel, in the Middle East. That nation of Arab, Jew and Kenites. America's prosperity is not an accident, it is a blessing of God to His people. It is the fulfillment of His promises to father Abraham over 4000 years ago. Russia is planning to steal the land that God gave His people.

The titles "House of Israel" and the "House of Judah" are used to designate the two kingdoms, as they stand separated and in opposition to each other. The "Birthright" tribes, Ephraim and Manasseh went with the ten-tribed kingdom, and Judah to whom pertains the Throne or "Sceptre" through God's Covenant with David, formed the other kingdom. The SCEPTRE and the BIRTHRIGHT were separated then and there. Each became a nucleus. All the seed of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob gathered around either one or the other.

The Divided Kingdom The Northern Kingdom, "Israel," 933-721 B.C. The Southern Kingdom, "Judah," 933-606 B.C. The King of Judah assembled his army together to use force to unite the kingdoms, but God forbade it, saying He had divided the Kingdoms (I Kings 12: 21-24). Thus, each was free and independent of the other to fulfill its God-appointed destiny; one to fulfill the first covenant which the Lord made with their father Abraham, that of having multitudinous seed, spreading abroad and becoming many nations having kings over them; the other to fulfill the second covenant of bringing forth the Messiah. After the division of Israel into two kingdoms, the people went deeper and deeper into sin until finally the warning which God had given them in Leviticus 26, that if they persisted in sinning he would invoke the seven times punishment and cause them to be removed from their land and scattered among the heathens, was put into effect. The Assyrians came against the Northern Kingdom (ten-tribed Israel; and defeating them in battles, carried them away captive into Assyria. They were put into Halah, and in Habor, by the river Gozan and the cities of Medes. In one final invasion the balance of the Northern Kingdom was removed into exile. The accounts of the invasions may be found in II Kings 17: 6-18 and 18: 11-12. Some of the tribes had been removed in previous invasions by Assyria (II Kings 15: 29)

In Amos 9: 9, God declared that although He will sift Israel among the nations "like as corn is sifted in a sieve." yet not the least grain would fall upon the ground. Then in the 14th and 15th verses He once again promised to bring them to their own land in the appointed time where they "shall no more be pulled up out of their land which I have given them" Israel was to be divorced from the Mosaic Law and their identity temporarily lost to history, but known to God. They were to be recovenanted. in Christ, to enjoy the Israel Birthright in the "appointed" land; "Moreover, I will appoint a place for my people Israel, and will plant them, that they may dwell in a place of their own, and move no more, neither shall the children of wickedness afflict them any more as beforetime" (II Sam. 7: 10). Since the children of Israel were in Palestine at the time, it follows, that the appointed place had to be somewhere else.

In Ezekiel 34: 1-16, God sees His sheep. His people Israel, "scattered upon all the face of the earth", as lost sheep without a shepherd, and in the 11th verse. " For thus saith the Lord God, Behold I, even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out as a shepherd doth his flock in the day that he is among his sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day." Here, God is saying that He Himself would come and seek them out as a shepherd seeking his lost sheep, (Jer. 31:10) And when Christ came to earth He said, "I and the Father are one" (John 10: 30.) Timothy understood this great mystery and stated "God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles*, believed on in the world, received up into glory." Clearly this was referring to Christ of whom the prophets foretold, "He would be called the Son of God." St. Matthew also understood what was spoken of the Lord by the Prophet Isaiah, "Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel," when he said, "Emmanuel which being interpreted is. God is with us." (Matt. 1: 23) Isaiah also gave among the names of the child, "The Everlasting Father" (Isaiah 9: 6). Christ then openly declared, "I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the House of Israel," (Matt. 15: 24)

Matthew 10:6 "But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel."

Now does this say "go to the Jews", or "Go to Judah"? No. It says "Go to the lost sheep of the House of Israel". The sons of Judah know where they are, and who they are; there is nothing lost about them. In fact, when these Jews came to Jesus in their self-righteous attitude, they came to trick Him up, because of this He would answer their questions in parables to keep the kingdom message a mystery from them. Jesus didn't even imply that the disciples should go to the House of Judah.

If you are lost, it means that that person doesn't know who they are. They are not in Jerusalem anymore, but gone to another area completely, and lost their identity to themselves. As a Christian, it should be your priority to learn who these lost "House of Israel" are, or you will not be able to rightly divide the Word of truth. To understand the parables that Jesus Christ taught you need to understand the parable of the sower concerning the children of the good and the bad; which is the prime root to the "key of David". 

This is a very simple message, but it is a total mystery to much of the church world today, and they attach the Jews, good and bad, as the lost sheep of the House of Israel. God is the same yesterday, today and forever, and that message continues right to today. So how do you prepare yourself to go out and plant the seed of the word of God, when the simplest parts of God's mystery are over looked?
