Again, I want to emphasize that the True Living God has only one plan, and that is the plan for redeeming mankind through what His Son Jesus Christ did for us on the Cross. Part of today’s scripture says, “For so the Lord said unto me, I will take my rest, and I will consider in my dwelling place like a clear heat upon herbs, and like a cloud of dew in the heat of harvest.” The clear heat would be like the sun shining clearly on the herbs after a rain, and we know how refreshing dew would be in the heat of harvest time! In God’s plan of redeeming mankind, He wants to provide everything possible so that we will give our spirit and soul to Him through the Cross of Christ. The True Living God offers this Sun and Dew to Israel in the heat! Compared to the fountains of Living Water that is offered through Jesus Christ, dew with Sun doesn’t sound like a lot. BUT, it is an open invitation even through the most horrible of circumstances, even in the Great Tribulation. Jesus Christ promises that he would be with us even to the end of the world. God loves us and will always make His Son Jesus Christ available to us so that we will not perish but have eternal life.
Sour grapes definitely do not sound too appetizing for something to eat! So, I’m sure the next verse refers to about the same thing as when Jesus said, “Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and puts forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh.” Jesus was referring to being able to recognize the end of the age leading into the Great Tribulation. Today’s Scripture says, “For afore the harvest, when the bud is perfect, and the sour grape is ripening in the flower, He shall both cut off the sprigs with pruning hooks, and take away and cut down the branches.” Again, when you see the buds appearing then you will know that the sprigs will be cut off and the branches will be cut down! In today’s age, we know how many sour grapes are beginning to flower regarding the One True God, the Message of the Cross of Christ, and the presence of the Holy Spirit. At the same time, anti-Semitism is rising to global proportions. Even in the United Sates Congress, there are lawmakers with open ambitions of eliminating Israel as an independent land! The modern god of knowledge is a component of the anti-Christ and will not share favorable information relating to the Living God of Israel which is the same God who gave His Son Jesus Christ as atonement for our sin! Jesus Christ promises to Israel and also to us that He is with us always, even to the end of the world!
We would do very well to have it in our heart that living in sin is how the anti-Christ manipulates our thoughts and actions! When materialism and worldly pleasures replace the sacredness of the spirit and soul, then it becomes easy to respond readily to the modern god of knowledge, and it causes blindness to the harm in the computer implant chip. The components of the 666 are here! We plunge into the lifestyle of letting the god of knowledge live through thoughts and actions. If honesty were known, it would be noted how hostile and oppressive the god of knowledge is to the Living God, Christ Jesus, and the Holy Spirit.
The modern god of knowledge is not honest about the disparagement towards those who follow the way of the Cross of Christ. The god of knowledge isn’t even honest about their spite towards Israel. With a world so full of treachery and the diabolical agenda of the anti-Christ, it no longer sounds cruel to hear that Israel, “…shall be left together unto the fowls of the mountains, and to the beasts of the earth: and the fowls shall summer upon them, and all the beasts of the earth shall winter upon them.” Israel will sign a peace treaty with the anti-Christ, and soon after that the above scripture reference transpires. I’m sure many will be appalled at Israel’s friendship with the anti-Christ and will be glad of her being left to the beasts of the field. BUT, we who share Israel’s God through Christ Jesus are rooting for God’s people! In fact, we welcome the return of our Lord Jesus Christ and we welcome the complete victory He will have over the anti-Christ. We know that a remnant of Israel will come to Christ Jesus in circumstances worst than the world has ever known. I rejoice in the promise of Jesus Christ that He will be with us always even to the end of the world.
As we snowball towards the rise of the anti-Christ, we need to welcome every bit of Sunshine and every drop of Dew that comes to us. That Sunshine and Dew comes from the Cross of Christ and through the Word of God! Presently, the modern god of knowledge wants to oppress our ability to open our soul and spirit to the Spirit of God. If our soul and spirit is shut off then fellowship with the Spirit of God is shut off also, and that means infilling of the soul with God’s blessings is also shut off. When we accept what Christ Jesus did for us on the Cross then we experience a resurrection of the spirit and a new openness of the soul. We are born again and filled with the Holy Spirit. That is something the modern god of knowledge knows nothing about and will not offer to mankind. We need to be set apart from the materialism and haughtiness within the world. When the Spirit of Christ lives in us then we will be set apart from the ways of the world. The remission of sin is like having our head anointed with the Oil of the Holy Spirit so that what we think and do is through God’s Righteousness and not Satan’s treachery. We just simply need to confess with our mouth that Jesus Christ is lord and to believe in our heart. Jesus Christ is Coning soon!
“For so the Lord said unto me, I will take my rest, and I will consider in my dwelling place like a clear heat upon herbs, and like a cloud of dew in the heat of harvest. For afore the harvest, when the bud is perfect, and the sour grape is ripening in the flower, he shall both cut off the sprigs with pruning hooks, and take away and cut down the branches. They shall be left together unto the fowls of the mountains, and to the beasts of the earth: and the fowls shall summer upon them, and all the beasts of the earth shall winter upon them.” Isaiah 18:4-6 King James Version (KJV)
“And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” Matthew 28:18-20
“Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and puts forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh” Matthew 24:32
