Prophecies for the End Times, Judah and Jerusalem
Duration: 14.32 minutes
Will the nations of the world be judged by God for the way they treated the Jewish people during their exile according to Judaism?
All Peoples of the World will be judged for their sins.
The Lost Ten Tribes will be judged.
The Jews of Judah will be judged.
Descendants of Israel (both Judah and the Ten Tribes) will be judged especially.
Amos (KJV) 3:
2 You only have I known of all the families of the earth: therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities.
Towards the End Times trials and tribulations will occur. The exact chronological order of all predicted events may not always be clear.
Nevertheless numerous prophecies speak about what will happen.
Among other things the Lost Ten Tribes will return.
They will re-unite with Judah.
There will be wars. The heathen Nations will have fought against Judah and they will come again to do battle against all of Israel.
In the End God will judge all the nations. Everyone who sinned will be punished. Those who did good will be rewarded. How it will all work out is another story.
Pagan Nations that were inimical tot he Jews and/or tried to present the Jews from coming back to Jerusalem and the Land of Israel will be punished especially.
This is what the Bible says. From this we can learn the Will of God.
We learn that God will punish they who tried to stop the Jews from returning and attempted to harm the Jewish settlement of Zion and Jerusalem.
We may deduce from this it is the will of God that the Jews return and rebuilt the land and especially Zion and Jerusalem!
There are a lot of Biblical verses concerning these issues. A lot of details can be learned from all this. For the present talk we intend to quote a few of the many verses that exist
and hopefully impart a reliable overall impression of this important Biblical Message.
The Peoples of the World will be judged. This is what the simple literal meaning of the Bible says!
They who oppressed the Jewish People will be punished. They who helped them will be rewarded.
Deuteronomy chapter 32 gives us the Song of Moses just before he died. The ways of God are prefect and just. We are called upon to learn from History, "Remember the days of old,
Consider the years of all generations" (32:7). Moses gives a brief outline of past events, then Prophecies for the future showing how the People of Israel would sin, be punished, and later reconciled with God.
The Almighty will take vengeance on the oppressors of Judah.
Deuteronomy (NASB) 32:
Rejoice, O nations, with His people;
For He will avenge the blood of His servants,
And will render vengeance on His adversaries,
And will atone for His land and His people.
Note that the Almighty takes retribution from the nations not only because they sinned against HIS Chosen People but also because they sinned against the Land of Israel if they tried to prevent the return of the Jews to it. This is a recurring theme in Biblical Prophesy. The Jews do not represent only themselves. They are the emissaries of all they who are good in the world and they have an obligation to them.
Other verses repeat this theme and add detail to it.
Isaiah chapters 34 and 35 speak of the coming Judgement Day.
Isaiah (NASB) 34:
1 Draw near, O nations, to hear; and listen, O peoples!
Let the earth and all it contains hear, and the world and all that springs from it.
2 For the LORD's indignation is against all the nations,
And His wrath against all their armies.....
8 For the LORD has a day of vengeance,
A year of recompense for the cause of Zion....
16 Seek from the book of the LORD, and read:
Not one of these will be missing;
None will lack its mate.
For His mouth has commanded,
And His Spirit has gathered them.
17 He has cast the lot for them,
And His hand has divided it to them by line.
They shall possess it forever;
From generation to generation they will dwell in it.
The People will return, the Land will be resorted, the Chosen of the Almighty will reign.
Isaiah (NASB) 35:
1 The wilderness and the desert will be glad,
And the Arabah will rejoice and blossom;
Like the crocus
2 It will blossom profusely
And rejoice with rejoicing and shout of joy.
The glory of Lebanon will be given to it,
The majesty of Carmel and Sharon.
They will see the glory of the LORD,
The majesty of our God.
3 Encourage the exhausted, and strengthen the feeble.
4 Say to those with anxious heart,
Take courage, fear not.
Behold, your God will come with vengeance;
The recompense of God will come,
But He will save you.
Isaiah 59:17, 61:2, 63:4, Jeremiah 46:10, Nahum 1:2, 1-Chronicles 16:33, Ecclesiastes 3:17, Micha 5:15, Psalm 96:13.
Zephaniah (NASB) 2:
10 This they will have in return for their pride, because they have taunted and become arrogant against the people of the LORD of Hosts. 11 The LORD will be terrifying to them, for He will starve all the gods of the earth; and all the coastlands of the nations will bow down to Him, everyone from his own place.
Psalm (NASB) 149:
1 Praise the LORD!
Sing to the LORD a new song,
And His praise in the congregation of the godly ones.
2 Let Israel be glad in his Maker;
Let the sons of Zion rejoice in their King....
6 Let the high praises of God be in their mouth,
And a two-edged sword in their hand,
7 To execute vengeance on the nations
And punishment on the peoples,
8 To bind their kings with chains
And their nobles with fetters of iron,
9 To execute on them the judgment written;
This is an honor for all His godly ones.
Praise the LORD!
Isaiah (NASB) 49:
22 Thus says the LORD God,
Behold, I will lift up My hand to the nations
And set up My standard to the peoples;
And they will bring your sons in their bosom,
And your daughters will be carried on their shoulders.
23 Kings will be your guardians,
And their princesses your nurses.
They will bow down to you with their faces to the earth
And lick the dust of your feet;
And you will know that I am the LORD;
Those who hopefully wait for Me will not be put to shame....
25 Surely, thus says the LORD,...
For I will contend with the one who contends with you,
And I will save your sons.
26 I will feed your oppressors with their own flesh,
And they will become drunk with their own blood as with sweet wine;
And all flesh will know that I, the LORD, am your Savior
And your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.
cf. Isaiah 59: 17 - 21, and much more.
The Ten Tribes will return. The Jews will come back to the Holy Land and Jerusalem. They will rebuild the Temple. The former border will be restored.
All they who persecuted the Jews and who wished them harm will be requited. They wanted to prevent the Jews from coming Home will be punished.
This is what History has been all about.
The Jews were a tool employed by the Almighty.
If they did not always act as they should have then HE will have HIS own reckoning with them.
Nevertheless, they were HIS!
HE will affirm this!
