Signs in the End Times


Part Two

“And Jacob called unto his sons, and said, “Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you that which shall befall you in the last days.” Genesis 49:1

There is no sign given to “the adulterous generation” that Jesus spoke of, which lives to this day. The Prophet tells us that Israel and Judah have played the harlot, committing adultery (Jeremiah, Chapter 3). There is an Israel and Judah of Judaism, an Israel and Judah of Christianity, and an Israel and Judah within us. We are the adulterous generation unto which no sign is given except “the sign of Jonah,” which (from the first revelation) is “the pigeon returning from the mating season,” meaning, “it’s over.” However, God, in His mercy, has given us a second revelation, giving us the ability to read the signs that are all around us through an understanding of biblical symbolism. In Part 1 we discussed the first three unholy spirits associated with Israel and Judah. The first, REUBEN, is FEAR. The sign?  September 11th, 2001. The second and third, SIMEON and LEVI, “instruments of cruelty,” ANGER and CONTROL. The sign? ISIS.

These three perpetuate the deadly cycle that keeps us in bondage or addiction, the bondage of Egypt symbolizing the addiction of The World. The United States is about to lose what She stands for, which is Freedom! She is in the process of being handed over to a very oppressive Law, along with an oppressive Religion from which it cannot be separated. Osama bin Laden. Saddam Hussein. Barak Hussein Obama. Three signs that point to the three destructive powers at work in, and against, Israel and Judah, as the three powers or destructive energies of fear, anger, and control are at work in the Mind and Heart of man. The fact that these three men are Muslims, or of Muslim origin, is no coincidence. It is yet another sign:  

“For it is written that Abraham had two sons, the one by the bondmaid, the other by a freewoman…which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants.” Galatians 4:22-30.

Ishmael and Isaac, existing without in their descendantsMuslims and Jews. Existing side-by-side in the Holy Land, symbolizing the Heart of man. The son of Agar symbolizes internal bondage. The son of Sarah symbolizes internal freedom. The ongoing battle between the descendants of Ishmael (Muslims) and the descendants of Isaac (Jews) reveals man’s spiritual battlethe conflict between two internal powers. One fights to keep us in bondage. The other fights to make us free.

“For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children.”

The children of Israel (who became Judah by passing through the Red Sea) escaped the bondage of Egypt only to return to bondage at mount Sinai by forming an image and worshipping it. The bondage of a land has been replaced with the bondage of a law, one added because of transgression of God's spiritual Law, this carnal law observed by Jews to this very day, placing them in the lineage of Agar, giving power to what her son symbolizesbondage (within and without).

Then we have Israel and Judah of the Gentiles, and Paul, the chosen Apostle of this religious nation, which Saul of the Old Testament foreshadowed. Christians  (through the teachings of Paul) have also formed an image. Like those at mount Sinai they got impatient, IMPATIENCE being the last of the four deadly spirits inhabiting ISRAEL and JUDAH inhabiting the MIND and HEART of man. Christians proclaim that Christ has set them free, before they have completed the works that would make them free. They formed this false image or belief out of the spirit of impatience, as their counterpart got impatient while waiting for Moses and formed the gold calf, worshipping it, placing Christians in the lineage of Agar, along with the Jews, giving power to what her son symbolizesbondage.

These four FEAR, ANGER, CONTROL, and IMPATIENCE, are the four “beasts” or “living ones” in the book of Revelation. They make up the UNHOLY SPIRIT living in man the negative and destructive energy ruling humanity. When man took on this spirit he removed his protection. The Jews left their protection through disobedience. They were told to remain in Jerusalem, whose wall symbolizes protection, but they disobeyed God’s word, traveling west, becoming merchants, a sign that points us to Jonah, who was instructed by God to go to Nineveh. But went instead to “Tarshish, a place on the Mediterranean; the epithet of a merchant vessel.” A merchant is one who buys and sells. Men have become spiritual merchants, buying and selling graven images, symbolizing the false images or beliefs that make up the spiritual beast living within, in which dwell four (earthly) beastly spirits a destructive power exercised without through the two beasts in the book of Revelation. The first external beast to exercise this power was HITLER. The second is ISIS, the beast being the belief that they are willing to destroy other humans for. For Hitler is was the belief in a pure race. For Isis it is the same, which can only be achieved by destroying the "infidel." And like Hitler, Isis will decide who fits the definition of being impure. It is no coincidence that this power is being exercised in the west once again seventy years later.

North. South. East. West. The north is Israel. The south is Judah. The east is the Spirit. The west is the word. Spirit and word, the two divine attributes of the Creator— the power of creation. But man has chosen his own word, through which he has formed his own creation, one that is bringing a loss of freedom and great destruction. It is "man’s word" (the culmination of his false religious and personal beliefs) that is responsible for the burden (Jeremiah 23:36) for the destruction, and oppression— bondage that man is collectively allowing himself to serve under due to the power of his own word of false beliefs the beast within, which is giving power to the beast without a power that is being exercised by ISIS. David fought against the lion and the bear, the lion symbolizing man’s unholy spirit and the bear symbolizing man's unrighteous word. What country has the bear for its symbol?   Enter Russia, and its ruler Vladimir Putin.

These are SIGNS of the END TIMES.
