Isaiah 2

1The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem.

2And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD's house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it.

3And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.

4And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.

5O house of Jacob, come ye, and let us walk in the light of the LORD.

6Therefore thou hast forsaken thy people the house of Jacob, because they be replenished from the east, and are soothsayers like the Philistines, and they please themselves in the children of strangers.

7Their land also is full of silver and gold, neither is there any end of their treasures; their land is also full of horses, neither is there any end of their chariots:

8Their land also is full of idols; they worship the work of their own hands, that which their own fingers have made:

9And the mean man boweth down, and the great man humbleth himself: therefore forgive them not.

10Enter into the rock, and hide thee in the dust, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty.

11The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, and the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day.

12For the day of the LORD of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low:

13And upon all the cedars of Lebanon, that are high and lifted up, and upon all the oaks of Bashan,

14And upon all the high mountains, and upon all the hills that are lifted up,

15And upon every high tower, and upon every fenced wall,

16And upon all the ships of Tarshish, and upon all pleasant pictures.

17And the loftiness of man shall be bowed down, and the haughtiness of men shall be made low: and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day.

18And the idols he shall utterly abolish.

19And they shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth.

20In that day a man shall cast his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which they made each one for himself to worship, to the moles and to the bats;

21To go into the clefts of the rocks, and into the tops of the ragged rocks, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth.

22Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils: for wherein is he to be accounted of ?


2 Thessalonians 2

1Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,

2That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

3Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

4Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.



The Son of Perdition sitting in the temple of God showing himself that he is God comes before the "Day of the LORD"/"Day of Christ" in which the LORD comes to cast out all usurping spirits - including us if we choose to be so.

We don't want to be a usurping spirit. Man's united Kingdom won't work because of our universal weakness - sin. The only cure is being born again into the spirit of God in his Messiah Jesus through a repentant heart turning to him. Scripture makes it clear if we are not in the spirit of God in Jesus Christ we are under the powers of spiritual darkness. This spiritual darkness is so powerful we don't know where we stumble - possibly until it's too late and we wake up to an eternal state separated from our creator! This deception will be due to spiritual blindness not intellectual (2 Thessalonians 2).

The only answer is turning to God in Jesus Christ through repentance being born-again.

When the LORD Messiah Jesus sets up his Kingdom on earth he will beat swords into plowshares and we will know war no more. What an amazing promise! The Lord keeps his promises.

Romans 6:23
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Ephesians 2:8
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

Salvation is a gift from God. Who wants to spend an eternity in sorrow knowing (see Luke 16) that they've rejected God's love/free gift of salvation of the soul in his Annointed One/Messiah Jesus?

Think of a true utopia without covetousness, envy, hate, selfishness, etc in which all things are given to those who freely ask from the creator of the universe!

Our creator/redeemer simply wants us to love him! That's not too much to ask. The "Holy Spirit" helps us with sin in where we can obtain real peace on earth. It's a gift to those who freely ask!

What are we waiting for Ladies and Gentleman? Let's go home already. Everything we see happening in the Middle East, the financial center, politics is being directed to a period of time that Evangelical Christians have been talking about for the past 2000 years.

We need to apply the Passover blood to our hearts because Judgment is coming.

Lord Jesus could end all wars and rebellions like this Word that the Lord brought,....I remember some ten years ago a story were this community in South America turned to Jesus, and Jesus shut down the local idols in the area, He closed down all the jails , and He sent the police looking for something to do and even grew the local produce to great abundence surprising the farmers ......... So to end wars would be a piece of cake for the Lord , IF believers would get together and pray for peace throughout the nations ....... But mostly we will have to wait for Armageddon of Revelations 16, and the fall of the Harlot of babylon and the false prophet to be removed as the Lord promises to come before renewal in the earth of this peace for all .....

Amen. It won't happen until Jesus is ruling with a rod of iron sitting on the throne of David.
