Ezekiel 3 – Warning to Israel & The Tower of Babel Today

Technology really took off in the early to mid-90s, and due to technology some things have gotten easier and faster to handle, but things have gotten much worse too.  I think the devil is getting really scared so I do expect the antichrist to be showing his ugly face any day now.

Just when you thought insects couldn’t get any creepier, the US Air Force has unveiled tiny finger-sized insect spy drones that would be undetectable to most and can inject toxins into people.

About the five possible suggestions of the antichrist I mention below: I have to disagree, I don’t think any of them are disgusting enough.  Not meaning they aren’t disgusting, they truly are quite nauseating and offensive, but they just don’t have the wit.

Of the five, Hillary is without the smartest and the sneakiest and the scariest is by far Michelle, she could frighten a pit bull.  

I apologize Father, if what I say offends my readers, but I have a problem with people that are against the United States and certainly against You.  Besides, I thought I was being polite when I said Michelle could frighten a pit bull.

It appears as though the end time is coming and I think it’s going to be in my lifetime, I might get to see Jesus in a couple decades.

Nobody knows for certain, but the antichrist probably will come from the Middle-East. 

I know the devil is very sneaky, he’s like a burglar, he has no spine.  So I’m wondering if he’s going to try and amaze us with some new technology or is he going to shock us with old stuff we know nothing about?

So I want to go back in time and look at…

Ezekiel 3
Warning to Israel

Reconstruction of the central courtyard of a two-storey house in ancient Israel.

1 Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, eat that thou findest; eat this roll, and go speak unto the house of Israel.

2 So I opened my mouth, and he caused me to eat that roll.

3 And he said unto me, Son of man, cause thy belly to eat, and fill thy bowels with this roll that I give thee. Then did I eat it; and it was in my mouth as honey for sweetness.

“In my mouth as honey” – what Jeremiah experienced emotionally (Jer 15:16) was experienced by Ezekiel in a more sensory way: Words from God are sweet to the taste (Ps 19:10, 119:103) – even when their content is bitter (Rev 10:9-10).

4 And he said unto me, Son of man, go, get thee unto the house of Israel, and speak with my words unto them.

5 For thou art not sent to a people of a strange speech and of a hard language, but to the house of Israel;

6 Not too many people of a strange speech and of a hard language, whose words thou canst not understand. Surely, had I sent thee to them, they would have hearkened unto thee.

“They would have hearkened unto me” – Jesus spoke similar words to Israel (Matt 11:21).

7 But the house of Israel will not hearken unto thee; for they will not hearken unto me: for all the house of Israel are impudent and hardhearted.

8 Behold, I have made thy face strong against their faces, and thy forehead strong against their foreheads.

9 As an adamant harder than flint have I made thy forehead: fear them not, neither be dismayed at their looks, though they be a rebellious house.

“Harder than flint have I made thy forehead” – strength and courage were necessary equipment for a prophet, especially when preaching judgment.  Jerusalem was similarly equipped (Jer 1:8).

10 Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, all my words that I shall speak unto thee receive in thine heart, and hear with thine ears.

11 And go, get thee to them of the captivity, unto the children of thy people, and speak unto them, and tell them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear.

“Go…to them of that captivity…the children of thy people” – Ezekiel’s ministry was to the exilic community, most of whom refused to believe that God would abandon Jerusalem and the temple.  After the fall of Jerusalem, therefore, they were strongly inclined to despair.

12 Then the spirit took me up, and I heard behind me a voice of a great rushing, saying, Blessed be the glory of the LORD from his place.

13 I heard also the noise of the wings of the living creatures that touched one another, and the noise of the wheels over against them, and a noise of a great rushing.

14 So the spirit lifted me up, and took me away, and I went in bitterness, in the heat of my spirit; but the hand of the LORD was strong upon me.

15 Then I came to them of the captivity at Tel-abib, that dwelt by the river of Chebar, and I sat where they sat, and remained there astonished among them seven days.

“Tel-abib” – the only mention of the specific place where the exiles lived.  In Babylonian the name means “mount of the flood (i.e., destruction”,” apparently referring to the ruined condition of the site.

When used of the modern Israel city, Tel Aviv, this name (Abib and Aviv are the same word in Hebrew) is understood to mean “hill of grain.”

16 And it came to pass at the end of seven days, that the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

17 Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me.

“I have made thee a watchman” – in ancient Israel, watchmen were stationed on the highest parts of the city wall to inform its inhabitants of the progress of a battle or of approaching messengers.  The prophets were spiritual watchmen, relaying God’s word to the people.

Ezekiel’s function as a watchman was not so much to warn the exiles of the impending doom of Jerusalem as to teach that God holds each one responsible for his own behavior.

18 When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.

Nomadic tents were larger than most modern tents, having two separate sections, front and back.
Nomadic tents woven from goats’ hair; the front flap and sides can be raised to allow the passage of fresh air.

19 Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.

20 Again, When a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness, and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumbling block before him, he shall die: because thou hast not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he hath done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at thine hand.

21 Nevertheless if thou warn the righteous man, that the righteous sin not, and he doth not sin, he shall surely live, because he is warned; also thou hast delivered thy soul.

22 And the hand of the LORD was there upon me; and he said unto me, Arise, go forth into the plain, and I will there talk with thee.

23 Then I arose, and went forth into the plain: and, behold, the glory of the LORD stood there, as the glory which I saw by the river of Chebar: and I fell on my face.

24 Then the spirit entered into me, and set me upon my feet, and spake with me, and said unto me, Go, shut thyself within thine house.

25 But thou, O son of man, behold, they shall put bands upon thee, and shall bind thee with them, and thou shalt not go out among them:

26 And I will make thy tongue cleave to the roof of thy mouth, that thou shalt be dumb, and shalt not be to them a reprover: for they are a rebellious house.

27 But when I speak with thee, I will open thy mouth, and thou shalt say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; He that heareth, let him hear; and he that forbeareth, let him forbear: for they are a rebellious house.

The Tower of Babel Today

The Tower of Babel next to the European Union the Parliament

The Bible does not tell us of a new Tower of Babel.  It does not tell us there will be a One World Order.  Yet, it does warn us of the end time (Matt 24).  So let’s just take a quick look at some things.

Centuries Ago

Satan has desired to control the world since the beginning of humanity.  The rules of his game are deception and the goal is world domination. 

Anton La Vay is the creator of the modern day Church Of Satan. Anton has manipulated lots and lots of people into joining the Church Of Satan. People all around the world are participating in this religion. Teenagers everywhere are wearing the clothes that Satanists wear, listening to this Satanic music by artists who are Satanists, even practicing the magic of Satanism themselves. This religion has spread everywhere. Although there aren’t a lot of people who would admit that they use Satanism as their religion, there are thousands of people who follow this religion. It didn’t just start with Anton La Vay. Satanism has been around for a very long time. All across the world, similar religions and private groups are available, using the same rituals and magical practices as the Church Of Satan.

The devil began his game at the beginning of time. 

First, Adam and Eve (Gen 3:1-7).

Then the world had become so evil that God destroyed the world by a massive flood (Gen 6:5-18). 

And later, mankind was already uniting once again in rebellion against God. So the Lord stopped the building of the city and Tower of Babel by confounding their languages and scattering mankind across the face of the earth (Gen 11:4-8).

Still today, Satan is uniting the world together against God.  The devil wants One World Order for the simple reason that it will be much easier for him to control us and to try and show us how impressive he is.  I know how impressive he is, about as impressive as a dog turd. 

Yet, the majority of the world will cling to him like flies because most of the world stinks too.

Anything that has to do with God Satan will do his best to counterfeit and/or destroy.

Antichrist

The Bible does not tell us who the antichrist will be, but it does give us an idea of where he may come from.  The books of Daniel, Isaiah and Revelation say the most about it.

Some scholars say he will come from the Middle-East, as did Nostradamus.  Some say he’ll come from Rome others from Syria.  Yet, nobody knows for certain. 

Some people think the antichrist could be:

Bush is the man who gave us the war in Iraq and Guantánamo and torture and rendition; who turned the Clinton economy and the budget surplus into fool’s gold; who dithered while New Orleans drowned; who trampled our civil liberties at home and ruined our reputation abroad; who let Dick Cheney run hog wild and thought Brownie was doing a heck of a job.

OR

 

 

Obama has increased the national debt more than any other United States President; lied repeatedly to America; works for the New World Order elite; hates America; hates the God of the Bible, Christianity, patriots and the traditional family.

Obama promised not to raise taxes; but he did; promised not to propose any laws without first notifying the American public, but he has been secretive about many news laws; he broke his campaign pledge not to hire Wall Street insiders; promised to bring the troops home; but he has sent more. OR

Pope Francis cranked up his charm offensive on the world outside the Vatican, saying that each person “must choose to follow the good and fight evil as he conceives them” and calling efforts to convert people to Christianity “solemn nonsense.”

The Vatican’s head seemed intent on distancing himself from its power, saying church leaders “have often been narcissists” and “clericalism should not have anything to do with Christianity.”

Does it have to be a man?  What’s wrong with one of these lovely ladies? OR

Hillary Clinton is or close to being the most corrupt person on the planet (President Bill Clinton could be worse, but I doubt it).  For the record:

– The only president ever impeached on grounds of personal malfeasance

– Most number of convictions and guilty pleas by friends and associates

– Most number of cabinet officials to come under criminal investigation

– Most number of witnesses to flee country or refuse to testify

– Most number of witnesses to die suddenly

– First president sued for sexual harassment

– Second president accused of rape

– First lady to come under criminal investigation

– Largest criminal plea agreement in an illegal campaign contribution case

– First president to establish a legal defense fund

– First president to be held in contempt of court

– Greatest amount of illegal campaign contributions

– Greatest amount of illegal campaign contributions from abroad

– First president disbarred from the United States Supreme Court and a state court OR

Michelle Obama is a sexist, a racist, a bigot, a Marxist, and she links with socialists, communists and other high ranking radicals that wish nothing more than to destroy the United States as it is, and create a brand new United States!

Some suggest that the antichrist will be European.  Maybe French?   

Possible Headquarters
of the New World Order?

The European Union’s Parliament Building in Strasbourg has been deliberately designed to represent the Tower of Babel, as per the famous painting by Peter Brueghel in 1563 (at the top of the page and to the left directly above) .
The logic behind this symbolism is the the EU is seeking to “build the house of Europe” – a task yet to be completed. The building is complete and in use, but is designed to look unfinished, and even has ringed platforms around it to represent scaffolding.

Still today we find evidence of the religion of Babylon.  The European Union’s Parliament Building in Strasbourg has been deliberately designed to represent the Tower of Babel, as per the famous painting by Peter Brueghel, painted in 1563.

When asked by a secular journalist:

Why the Tower of Babel?

A European Union official replied,   

What they failed to complete 3000 years ago – we in Europe will finish now.

“Do you think Satan is going to give us the heads up on who the antichrist will be?”  I seriously doubt it.

Do you think that Obama became president, especially the second time, by votes?  Read your Bible and walk with God and He will show you things that you will understand without seeing.

And as I said, Satan is not impressive, the man that impresses me you can read about here.

The good news is, those that walk with Jesus have nothing to fear.
