It’s a horrid thought that a specific culture of people would be made thin! That is known as genocide, but it is happening in countries around the world. In acts of genocide, the fatness of a specific people is taken away, and that fatness relates to their wealth in this world. Even worse, in genocide a specific people are actually thinned through persecution and murders to purge a country of their existence. This is what happened to the Jewish people during the Holocaust under the reign of Hitler’s Germany! Their fatness was taken away and their population was thinned. Today’s scripture verse is referring to that type of genocide when it says, “And in that day it shall come to pass, that the glory of Jacob shall be made thin, and the fatness of his flesh shall wax lean.” We are living in the days where the spirit of the anti-Christ is intensifying day by day. In that day of the anti-Christ, anyone refusing to live by the “incarnation” of the 666 will have their fatness taken away and they will be thinned. Even so, Christ Jesus defeated the anti-Christ at the Cross…as our sin is put into remission the anti-Christ is remitted. The True God has no desire for anyone to perish but instead offers eternal life.
The modern god of knowledge cleaves to the flesh of humanity around the world and shuts the door to the soul and the spirit. Shutting the door to the soul and spirit is shutting the door to the One True God, the Message of the Cross of Christ, and the presence of the Holy Spirit. This world is very close to witnessing the appearing of the anti-Christ! The fatness of the blessings of the One True God is being taken away and those seeking those blessings are becoming thin. “And it shall be as when the harvestman gathers the corn, and reaps the ears with his arm; and it shall be as he that gathers ears in the valley of Rephaim.” Even so, the work of the Holy Spirit is to bring people to the Cross of Christ for the remission of sin so that we can be reconciled to the Spirit of God and have our soul filled with fruitfulness. Even during the reign of the anti-Christ, the Holy Spirit will bring people to the Cross of Jesus Christ to be redeemed to God the Father. God offers us eternal life and there is no need for anyone to perish.
The Children of the Living God will always exist in this world through the Cross of Jesus Christ because the Holy Spirit compassionately calls us to a better way of life. In the kingdom of this world they call these survivors the remnant, but in the Kingdom of God they are innumerable as the stars in the sky. Amidst the genocide that will happen during the Great Tribulation, that is brought on by the anti-Christ, we can share this hope with Israel, “Yet gleaning grapes shall be left in it, as the shaking of an olive tree, two or three berries in the top of the uppermost bough, four or five in the outmost fruitful branches thereof, says the Lord God of Israel.” Israel will survive the wickedness of the anti-Christ like grapes left in a vineyard after the harvest. In fact, the Twelve Tribes of Israel will be the doors to the New Jerusalem and the Twelve Jewish Apostles will be the foundation of the New Jerusalem. God’s love is such that He desires for us to have eternal life so that no one will perish.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” God’s love is shown towards us because He sent His Son to redeem us to His Spirit. That is God’s love, kindness, and goodwill towards a race of people with a sinful and wicked heart, which resulted because of the fall of Adam and Eve. “God commends his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” This is not the spirit of genocide, this is the Spirit of Redemption. God’s faithfulness, goodness, and joy is shown to us through the Prodigal Son. God faithfully, in his goodness, waits for us to come to Him through the Cross of His Son Jesus Christ, and when we do there is much rejoicing within the Kingdom of God. God’s self-control, patience, and perseverance is shown to us through Noah’s flood, Sodom and Gomorrah, and the foretelling of the Great Tribulation, etc. The world was so wicked in those days, and in the coming system of the anti-Christ, that a very few people were clinging to the One True God, and the few were saved; just Noah and his family, just Lot, and just a remnant within the Great Tribulation. The wicked and sinful heart of mankind actually destroys itself before God intervenes with severe corrective action. BUT, the Cross of Christ is God’s intervention and is always there for us so that none, not one, will perish but have eternal life. God’s meekness, gentleness, and peacefulness is seen through His Son Christ Jesus. Christ Jesus was beaten, scourged, and crucified, but even through His betrayal by Judas Iscariot did not lash out. God has a meek and gentle spirit of peace towards us because He wants us to be reconciled to Him through the Cross of His Son Jesus Christ.
Please, believe in your heart and confess with your mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord.
May the Spirit of Christ live in us with the indwelling of God’s love, kindness, goodwill, meekness, gentleness, peacefulness, faith, goodwill, kindness, perseverance, self-control, and patience. Those who live by the modern god of knowledge are engaging in the genocide of God’s people, and are working to usher in the system of the anti-Christ. BUT, the Spirit of Christ works in us through the Holy Spirit to draw others to the Cross of Christ for the remission of sin and to remit the spirit of the anti-Christ. The Holy Spirit desires eternal life for all people and that none will perish. May the fruit of the Holy Spirit fill our soul.
“And in that day it shall come to pass, that the glory of Jacob shall be made thin, and the fatness of his flesh shall wax lean. And it shall be as when the harvestman gathereth the corn, and reapeth the ears with his arm; and it shall be as he that gathereth ears in the valley of Rephaim. Yet gleaning grapes shall be left in it, as the shaking of an olive tree, two or three berries in the top of the uppermost bough, four or five in the outmost fruitful branches thereof, saith the Lord God of Israel.”
