Isaiah reveals to us that the people of Israel were already as the sand of the sea. That would fulfill God’s promise to Abraham when He said, “…I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore…” An interesting thing occurs in this promise, an image of the Rapture/Resurrection! The sand of the seas is of the earth (terrestrial) and the stars of the sky is of heaven (celestial) and we know that our earthly body is changed to a heavenly glorified body! While Israel, in general, will be purged in the Great Tribulation, there will be a remnant that is saved! They might miss the Rapture, but the remnant will be with God in the New Jerusalem, where the terrestrial earthly body is exchanged for the celestial body within the Kingdom of God. The Holy Spirit, in today’s Scripture text, is making this promise to those of Israel who escape the Great Tribulation! For though thy people Israel be as the sand of the sea, yet a remnant of them will return.
Today, we see Israel suffering much tribulation as they are bombarded with missile attacks frequently. Satan is attempting to force Israel into submitting to the demands of conformity within the kingdom of this world! The United Nations is already in the process of forcing countries to abide by the territories of the ten kingdoms of this world! As we know, the anti-Christ will rule when those ten kingdoms are firmly established. Press this link to look at the ten kingdoms of the world, The Post World War Two New World Order Map. Conformity to the New World Order means that Israel would have to abandon their God! The New World Order demands all religion to be abandoned, except for the image established by the antichrist! Israel is destined for the Great Tribulation as they refuse to abandon the Living God, but simultaneously they still need to accept Christ Jesus as Messiah! A remnant will come to accept what Christ Jesus did for them on the Cross during the Great Tribulation; as it is written, “for though thy people Israel be as the sand of the sea, yet a remnant of them will return.”
God extends the promise to Abraham beyond Israel to all the world, as it is written; “if you be Christ’s, then are you Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.” Through the Cross of Christ Jesus, once again, Abraham’s seed will be as the sands of the seashore and as the stars of heaven. We who are in Christ Jesus will be Raptured at the dawn of the Great Tribulation! “For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.” We know the Rapture/Resurrection is soon because the spirit of the anti-Christ is in the world to establish and strengthen the ten kingdoms of the New World Order!
The spirit of the anti-Christ is defeated by the Spirit of Christ. The New World Order demands abandonment of faith in the Living God, the Message of the Cross, and the infilling of the Holy Spirit. The integration of countries into one of the ten kingdoms requires “tolerance,” “peace,” and “acceptance,” but based on the modern god of this technological age of knowledge! The system of the antichrist makes war with the seed of Abraham, including Israel and those who are Abraham’s seed through Christ Jesus. Our body is the Temple of God, the home of the Holy Spirit, and the anti-Christ wants to establish it’s 666 mark within what we think and what we do! The New World order wants it all…our internal life, the kingdoms of this world, and to rule over the Temple that is in Jerusalem! Christ Jesus died on the Cross to redeem us and to restore our body as the dwelling place of the Holy Spirit! By the remission of sin, we do not give our body to the service of the anti-Christ, instead our sin is made dormant, rendered inactive, and made to do nothing through us. We are set apart from the kingdom of this world to be wholly dedicated to the Kingdom of God.
Believe in your heart and confess with your mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord!
“And it shall come to pass in that day, that the remnant of Israel, and such as are escaped of the house of Jacob, shall no more again stay upon him that smote them; but shall stay upon the Lord, the Holy One of Israel, in truth. The remnant shall return, even the remnant of Jacob, unto the mighty God. For though thy people Israel be as the sand of the sea, yet a remnant of them shall return: the consumption decreed shall overflow with righteousness. For the Lord God of hosts shall make a consumption, even determined, in the midst of all the land.”
