THERE COMES A POINT OF NO RETURN ~ Continued:
Ezekiel 7:8-9: “Now will I shortly pour out my fury upon thee, and accomplish mine anger upon thee: and I will judge thee according to thy ways, and will recompense thee for all thine abominations. And mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity: I will recompense thee according to thy ways and thine abominations that are in the midst of thee; and ye shall know that I am the Lord that smiteth.”
Ezekiel 8:17-18: “Then he said unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? Is it a light thing to the house of Judah that they commit the abominations which they commit here? For they have filled the land with violence, and have returned to provoke me to anger: and, lo, they put the branch to their nose. Therefore will I also deal in fury: mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity: and though they cry in mine ears with a loud voice, yet will I not hear them.”
Ezekiel 9:9-10: “Then said he unto me, the iniquity of the house of Israel and Judah is exceeding great, and the land is full of blood, and the city full of perverseness: for they say, the Lord hath forsaken the earth, and the Lord seeth not. And as for me also, mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity, but I will recompense their way upon their head.”
Ezekiel 14:13, 14, 16, 18, 20: “Son of man, when the land sinneth against me by trespassing grievously, then will I stretch out mine hand upon it, and will break the staff of the bread thereof, and will send famine upon it, and will cut off man and beast from it: Though these three men, Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, they should deliver but their own souls by their righteousness, saith the Lord God…Though these three men were in it, as I live, saith the Lord God, they shall deliver neither sons nor daughters; they only shall be delivered, but the land shall be desolate…Though these three men were in it, as I live, saith the Lord God, they shall deliver neither sons nor daughters, but they only shall be delivered themselves…Though Noah, Daniel, and Job were in it, as I live, saith the Lord God, they shall deliver neither son nor daughter; they shall but deliver their own souls by their righteousness.”
Deuteronomy 28:15, 45, 48, 49: “But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee and overtake thee…Moreover, all these curses shall come upon thee, and shall pursue thee, and overtake thee, till thou be destroyed; because thou hearkenedst not unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which he commanded thee…Therefore shalt thou serve thine enemies, which the Lord shall send against thee, in hunger, and in thirst, and in nakedness, and in want of all things: and he shall put a yoke of iron upon thy neck, until he hath destroyed thee. The Lord shall bring a nation against thee from far, from the end of the earth, as swift as the eagle flieth; a nation whose tongue thou shalt not understand.”
Daniel 9:11, 13, 14: “Yea, all Israel have transgressed thy law, even by departing, that they might not obey thy voice; therefore the curse is poured upon us, and the oath that is written in the law of Moses the servant of God, because we have sinned against him…As it is written in the law of Moses, all this evil is come upon us: yet made we not our prayer before the Lord our God, that we might turn from our iniquities, and understand thy truth. Therefore hath the Lord watched upon the evil, and brought it upon us: for the Lord our God is righteous in all his works which he doeth: for we obeyed not his voice.”
Nahum 3:19: “There is no healing of thy bruise; thy wound is grievous; all that hear the bruit of thee shall clap the hands over thee: for upon whom hath not thy wickedness passed continually?”
In Revelation 6:7, 8 God warns that He will kill “a fourth of the earth” (25%) with the sword, famine, plague and wild beasts. The evidence is overwhelming throughout the entire Bible that God uses these four judgments when a person or nation’s cup of iniquity becomes full. God’s anger and wrath is not out of the pride of the flesh. Rather, it is justifiable so that the innocent can live without suffering forever under a people who become unredeemable due to their continual rejection of God’s mercy. Yes, God does kill people, but He does not murder. People do not understand the sixth commandment, “Thou shalt not kill.” When destructive judgment comes upon the guilty by death (killing them), this is not murder; this is justice - grace in action! This is where one has to study the whole Bible to understand the Word of God. God set up guidelines where killing was justified for judgment in order that the innocent could live.
God told Noah before the Ten Commandments in Genesis 9:5-6: “And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it, and at the hand of man; at the hand of every man’s brother will I require the life of man. Whoso sheddeth man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed; for in the image of God made he man.” Capital punishment for murder was originally instituted by God. Later, when the Israelites were in the dessert and God gave the Ten Commandments, God explained the terms for capital punishment.
God told Moses in Numbers 35:29-31: “So these things shall be for a statute of judgment unto you throughout your generations in all your dwellings. Whoso killeth any person, the murderer shall be put to death by the mouth of witnesses: but one witness shall not testify against any person to cause him to die. Moreover ye shall take no satisfaction for the life of a murderer, which is guilty of death: but he shall be surely put to death.” God is certainly not breaking His own sixth commandment by judging someone who has broken the sixth commandment and is guilty of murder. God is saying if you commit unwarranted death...if you commit murder...then you will be judged yourself!
God sets up conditions for justice and mercy to be executed! Read Numbers 35:27-28: “And the revenger of blood find him without the borders of the city of his refuge, and the revenger of blood kill the slayer; he shall not be guilty of blood: Because he should have remained in the city of his refuge until the death of the high priest: but after the death of the high priest the slayer shall return into the land of his possession.” Again, God sets up standards for justice to be found and carried out with probation, mercy, and grace, if one will come under God’s authority (church authority). If not, God turns them over to the law of the land and He Himself finally executes eternal judgment so that the world will not be ruled by rebellion again!
Look at what God told Moses in Deuteronomy 32:39: “See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.” As in both the Old and New Testament, God claims responsibility for executing judgment by death through killing by the sword, famine, plagues, or wild beasts, using humans or angels to carry out His sentence! Exodus 12:12: “For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment. I am the Lord.”
Revelation 7:1-3 reads: “And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree. And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea. Saying, ‘Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.’” Here we see God using four angels to hold back the four winds of His judgment.
Note: In Genesis 41:27, Exodus 10:13, Job 1:19, Psalm 11:6, Jeremiah 30:23, winds represent destruction and the four winds symbolize global destruction!
Revelation 19:15-21 reads: “And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS. And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, ‘Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God; That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.’ And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against his army. And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with flesh.”
In Revelation there are fourteen judgments. The first seven plagues are redemptive in order to usher in a great revival. The last seven plagues are destructive, coming against those who continue to rebel and have no hope for repentance.
God is about ready to break His silence upon the world. As we have studied, when this happens, crisis will come suddenly without warning! The world is about to witness one catastrophic event after another until the people realize that God is not happy with their lives. Over a billion people will die at one time! In Revelation 6:8 the Lord warns that 25% of life on the earth will be killed. Later, in Revelation chapter 8, the Lord warns that 1/3 or thirty-three percent of the earth will be burned up. Thirty-three percent of the trees will be burned up. Thirty-three percent of the sea will turn into blood. Thirty-three percent of the sea creatures will die. Thirty-three percent of the ships on the sea will sink. Thirty-three percent of the rivers and springs will become contaminated. Thirty-three percent of the light from the sun will be taken away. Thirty-three percent of the light of the moon will be taken away. Thirty-three percent of the light of the stars will be taken away. Thirty-three percent of the day will be without light, and thirty-three percent of the night will be without light. The Bible warns that thirty-three percent of the troops will be killed in the sixth trumpet war! Hail and fire will be cast upon the earth according to Revelation 8:7. There will be an earthquake that literally shakes the nations throughout the entire world. Some of the conditions described by the book of Revelation can be explained by a large asteroid colliding with the earth which would release the energy of thousands of nuclear bombs. Also there will be nuclear war! The economy will collapse totally, forcing all to worship and obey the destroyer/false prophet (anti-christ) or to accept and follow Jesus Christ. Revelation 14:8 talks about “Babylon is fallen.”
Note: Out of the recognition that God is not happy with mankind and in order to stop the judgments of God, there will form a coalition of religious representatives that will unite for one common purpose - to stop the judgments of God. Man will finally be put into a situation where he cannot ignore the gospel any longer. The real gospel will be preached boldly, clearly and correctly, especially by the 144,000. The peoples of the world will finally hear the correct gospel, not the rubbish that is preached by some televangelists today, which is partially responsible for leading the church and the nations into this great apostasy.
Just imagination yourself in that period of time. God suddenly speaks with redemptive judgment. The nations are in desperate situations. Riots, famine, starvation, pollution, and millions upon millions in nations around the world dead or dying. People know God is not happy! People are finally listening to the true gospel, as well as the religious coalition known as Babylon. The man of sin, the anti-christ, satan himself, appears telling the world he will stop the judgments if people will now obey him. People are forced to make their choices to worship and accept the mark of the beast described in chapter 13 of Revelation, or refuse and follow Jesus as chapter 14 of Revelation warns. When people have made their choices, after this great redemptive revival is over and people refuse or accept the mark of the beast, then the wrath of God will be poured out on all those people who are beyond redemption. Destruction falls upon them, resulting in eternal judgment.
The Science of Judgment is a fact! God’s Law of Judgment will happen when the conditions warrant it. Those under His blood will escape His wrath, as the Israelites did in Egypt when they applied the blood. The Bible promises us that we can go through the shadow of death and fear no evil, and that greater is He that is within us than he that is in the world. Praise the Lord! Come quickly and bring Your divine love so we can live in peace throughout eternity!
On December 24, 1995, at 5:41 AM,
Prophet Jonathan Hansen received the following prophecy:
To America for 1998-2008
* Stock Market Collapse * Nuclear Attack
* Civil Unrest
* Social Security Collapse * Natural Disasters
* Chemical, Biological & Nuclear Terrorism
* Mammoth Tidal Waves
* Earthquakes and Eruptions throughout the United States
* And Many Others (See Website: www.world-ministries.org)
Northwest Area Warnings
* Mt Rainier Eruption
* 520 Bridge Collapse
* Powerful Northwest Earthquake
Note: Many of these prophecies are coming to pass already!
To avoid the above, there must be a mighty genuine revival (repentance) as in Ninevah (Jonah 3:5-10) or a powerful spirit of prayer must arise that will result in the mercy and grace of God as with Abraham for Sodom and Gomorrah. (Genesis 18:23-33). There is hope! If we meet the conditions of God, He will hear our call, forgive us, and heal the land! If we don’t meet the conditions, judgment will fall and all of the prophesies will come to pass.
II Chronicles 7:14: “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
