Chapter 14 The Calling Of Israel, The Manchild

Isa. 33:3 At the noise of the tumult the people fled; at the lifting up of thyself the nations were scattered. When the power of the LORD is in the earth, it will scatter every nation to care for its own calamities, its own sorrows, its own confrontations, and its own devastations. The LORD lifts Himself up in the earth by the elements of the earth, and yet, men say, GOD is a GOD of love, and a GOD of peace, and a GOD of mercy, and a GOD of forgiveness. Yet, these things come because GOD is first a GOD of wrath, of judgment, of constellations of multiple devastations, first, and then will He look and see how many nations come to their knees and repent for their many transgressions, for GOD does not forgive those who do not repent. GOD does not forgive transgression without judgment, seeing as judgment causes repentance, for as long as a man abides in the love of GOD only, he will abuse GOD by his many sins and rebellions and transgressions, that multiply into many wickedness’.

Isa: 33:5 The LORD is exalted; for he dwelleth on high: he hath filled Zion with judgment and righteousness. Through judgment is Zion filled with righteousness, and through judgment does the world learn righteousness, and through judgment does the world put upon its sackcloth of repentance, and through judgment are souls saved from damnation, and through judgment will the world learn of righteousness, and through the judgments of Zion, shall the world find that pathway into eternal life.

Isa. 33:6 And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times, and strength of salvation: the fear of the LORD is his treasure. What wisdom is there apart from fear of the LORD that will cause a man to depart his mischiefs and his sins? What knowledge of righteousness and salvation can a man attain to except he come through the door of the fear of death, and the fear of damnation, and the fear of judgment? How else is a man to gain eternal life except through the fear of not gaining it? If a man lacks fear, he will not forsake his sins that damn. If a man lacks knowledge, it is because he has no fear. If a man lacks wisdom, it is because he loves his iniquity and the pleasures of his flesh, considering not that he shall be judged for the smallest transgressions and damned for the greatest. If a man lacks fear, he shall go the way of the beasts of the field, never to see the face of the LORD forever and ever.

Isa. 33:10 Now will I rise, saith the LORD; now will I be exalted; now will I lift up myself. When the fear of the LORD is in the earth, GOD will lift up Himself, that He might be seen, and His pathway made clear unto the understanding of the perishing. For in the violences of nature do men reach up and through the devastations of the winds and fires, do men fall upon their face in fear of body and soul, and as they do, the LORD lifts up His own self unto those fearing death and destruction, and shows His face unto them, that they might in their fear know that He is about them and surrounds them unto salvation, and unto forgiveness, and unto deliverance from those things that are coming upon them with such severity’s. For man will fear man and slay him and war him and overcome him and take what is not his. But if a man fear GOD, it is GOD that does the overcoming, and the taking, and the reward is GOD’s.

Isa. 33:14 The sinners in Zion are afraid; fearfulness hath surprised the hypocrites. Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings? 15 He that walketh righteously, and speaketh uprightly; he that despiseth the gain of oppressions, that shaketh his hands from holding of bribes, that stoppeth his ears from hearing of blood, and shutteth his eyes from seeing evil; 16 He shall dwell on high: his place of defence shall be the munitions of rocks: bread shall be given him; his waters shall be sure. 17 Thine eyes shall see the king in his beauty: they shall behold the land that is very far off. How men like to oppress men with the words of the LORD. How men, both sinner and saint, love to oppress, judge, and curse the innocent with the Words of GOD, and exalt the guilty, all with the Word of GOD. For men say the guilty shall not be judged, and men say the guilty are innocent, and men say the guiltless are guilty, and there is no purity in their minds, nor in their thoughts, for their hearts look upon evil and think evil all the day long. Who shall abide when the purgings come? and the fires of the Spirit come? and the floods of the Spirit come? and the lake of crystal clear water drops itself down into this world with a violence and with a force that shall surprise the hypocrites in assemblies of GOD, and that shall shake even the caverns of hell that they burst with joy and peace and salvation? How is it that men look continually for evil? How is it men judge men by a rod of evil and see nothing in man that is to be saved? Those that look for the good in flesh, shall ascend up into the mountains to be rescued from the wrath’s of the tempests of the violences of nature. For the knowledge of the LORD descends and ascends into the world, and those who see no evil, and hear no evil, and speak no evil, shall see the land that is far off and see He who is descending and He who is ascending up and shall behold the face of the LORD. For the righteousness of CHRIST does not sit in the heavens, and the righteousness of CHRIST does not lie within the graves of men, seeing as the heavens are holy and the dead have ceased their sins. But the righteousness of CHRIST is wrought in the flesh of those who see the King afar off and who behold His beauty. Those who see righteousness are judged by it and those who see iniquity are judged by it.

Isa: 33:22 For the LORD is our judge, the LORD is our lawgiver, the LORD is our king; he will save us. Now, the Jew sees CHRIST as the judge, and as the lawgiver, and as the king, and then as the Saviour. Now, the Gentile sees CHRIST only as the Saviour, and the Gentile does err a grave error, a deadly error. First, CHRIST is the judge, and then CHRIST is the lawgiver, and then CHRIST is the king, the LORD, and then is CHRIST the Saviour. For first does CHRIST judge sin, and then does CHRIST lead into righteousness, and then is CHRIST made LORD, and then, and only then, does CHRIST become the Saviour. So the Manchild comes with a rod of judgment, and a rod of chastisement, and as the Jewish nation has always seen GOD as a GOD of judgment, and then as a forgiving GOD, they shall exalt this One as the sent One, and as the Anointed One, and He shall sit in judgment, and shall rule and reign as King, and He shall become a shelter from the wrath’s and plagues that are afflicted on the whole world. And He shall come and not speak in His own name, nor of His own self, but shall exalt the One before Him who became the Saviour of the world when He shed His holy blood on Golgotha.

Isa. 33:24 And the inhabitant shall not say, I am sick: the people that dwell therein shall be forgiven their iniquity. Because this latter One comes in a power seven times the power of the former, shall Israel reach up for redemption in their GOD who shall not deny them salvation. The Gentile deems they shall see no judgment but that GOD shall crucify and slaughter Israel in the earth, and turn Israel over to the dredges of the powers of darkness, and that it is Israel that shall be redeemed through tribulation and wrath and judgment. Israel shall be redeemed through the receiving of He whom CHRIST said he would send. The Gentile lacks truth and knowledge, both of these having fallen by the wayside into the ditch, because the Gentile has forsaken the vine, the words of CHRIST, and because she has, she can do nothing, and can perform no salvation in the earth, because her skirts are polluted. The Gentile has lifted itself above both Israel and the GOD of Israel, and before any work is accomplished in the Kingdom of GOD in the earth, the Kingdom that now stands shall come all the way down to ashes, and be shown to be the harlot that she is. For who can forgive sins but GOD alone? And all the world shall see that Israel shall be forgiven her sins. For the Kingdom that now is, does not say I am not sick, but says I am sick, and oppressed, and plagued, and diseased, and unhealed! If Her garment were clean, and if she were forgiven, she would also be healed. When repentance is perfect, healing is perfect. The Gentile has never learned what repentance is, and repentance is perfect in Israel, for her fear is perfect. Therefore, shall GOD redeem Israel and cast aside the Gentile, for her day of judgment is upon her, and the appointed winepress her destiny, her self appointed destiny, because she has failed to remember the only commandment that saves, FEAR GOD! For the merchandisers of the Kingdom of GOD, make merchandise of the afflicted churches of GOD, with lying words, all in the name of CHRIST, and her afflictions shall increase and increase and not be lifted, but shall increase as the tribulations and plagues upon the world increase. Because the holy name of CHRIST is slandered in the world, and made a mockery and a laughing sport in all nations, shall He, the Manchild, come in a new name.

Rev. 17:4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: 5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. . . . . . . . l7 For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled. There are many important visible evidences of the harlot church, and Isaiah spoke well of her, that as she beckons men to taste of her wares, she draws unto herself the lovers of the flesh, the lovers of this world, the lovers of prosperity, the lovers of family, the lovers of friends, the lovers of brethren, the lovers of husbands, the lovers of wives, the lovers of children, the lovers of lands, the lovers of houses, the lovers of pleasures, the lovers of praise, the lovers of elegance’s, the lovers of adornments, the lovers of baubles and trinkets, the lovers of attire, the lovers of power, the lovers of pomp and ceremonies, and laughter’s, and dancing’s, and merriment’s, not knowing the hour of destruction is upon the world, the hour of the winepress, the hour of the Kingdom of GOD to appear unto men.

Isa. 34:16 Seek ye out of the book of the LORD, and read: no one of these shall fail, none shall want her mate: for my mouth it hath commanded, and his spirit it hath gathered them. GOD shall gather by His Spirit, pure virgin spirits, married and unmarried, male and female, those that are not defiled with the harlot and her doctrines, nor her sorceries, nor her witchcraft’s, nor her costlinesses, nor her unclean attire, nor her odors, nor her gifts, nor her briberies, nor her prayers, nor her converts, nor her companions, nor her ministers, nor her false apostles, nor her false prophets, nor her false teachers, nor her false pastors, nor her unclean evangelists.

Rev. 22:6 And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to shew unto his servants the things which must shortly be done. 7 Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book. When the Manchild comes, and does what must quickly be done, then shall that generation see the second coming of the LORD JESUS CHRIST, and the redeemed shall possess the Kingdom of GOD from generation to generation, forever and ever, and of His Kingdom there shall be no end. For He shall make all things new, for first there was Israel, and then no more Israel, and then the Gentile, and there shall be no more Gentile, and then there shall be a new people, for His WORD has divided the kingdoms by lines, and by times and generations and by a faithful and true WORD, and the lot for them is cast into the WORD, and it shall be so, and who can do otherwise?
