So we see the enemy comes from the north Quoting: waterman Quoting: waterman
People read Isaiah, Jeremiah and the prophets and see the falling away of Israel and the Gods judgement come to them. Even if they do relate it to modern times. They are under the impression it is for tiny little geographical Israel which is only made of 2 of the original 12 tribes. People think the war of Gog and Magog is going to come to physical geographical Israel, but that war is not for the 2 tribes of geographical Israel it is for spiritual Israel the lost 10 tribes, the ones that are in the land of milk and honey(united states) where God said he would place the children of Israel, Gods hidden Israel: Psalm 83:
2 For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head.
3 They have taken crafty counsel against thy people,
and consulted against thy hidden ones.
4 They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel
may be no more in remembrance.
How is Israel hidden if we know where Israel is.....it is hidden because it is spiritual Israel....Bible pattern(physical first spiritual second)
If satan can cut off either house of Israel, the lost 10 tribes(united states) or the 2 tribes that are geographical Israel then the name of Israel will be no more. Ezek 37 shows they are rejoined in the end by Gods last servant
Next we are dealing the the Daughter of Zion
(united states spiritual Israel).....because when God is speaking of geographical Israel it is "son" not daughter:
Exodus 4:22:And you shall say unto Pharaoh, Thus says the LORD, Israel is my son
, even my firstborn:
NOTICE Jeremiah 6:
2I will destroy the Daughter of Zion
so beautiful and delicate.
3Shepherds with their flocks will come against her;
they will pitch their tents around her,
each tending his own portion.”
4“Prepare for battle against her!
Arise, let us attack at noon!
But, alas, the daylight is fading,
and the shadows of evening grow long.
5So arise, let us attack at night
and destroy her fortresses!”
and it goes on again about the daughter
and the enemy coming from the north
22This is what the Lord says:
“Look, an army is coming
from the land of the north;
a great nation is being stirred up
from the ends of the earth.
23They are armed with bow and spear;
they are cruel and show no mercy.
They sound like the roaring sea
as they ride on their horses;
they come like men in battle formation
to attack you, daughter of zion.”
and attacks the daughter of zion(united states) and not the son(geographical Israel firstborn son)..lets look at ezek 38:
2 Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog
, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him,
3 And say, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:
4 And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords:
5 Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet:
6 Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee.
7 Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them.
8 After many days thou shalt be visited: in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them.
9 Thou shalt ascend and come like a storm, thou shalt be like a cloud to cover the land, thou, and all thy bands, and many people with thee.
10 Thus saith the Lord God; It shall also come to pass, that at the same time shall things come into thy mind, and thou shalt think an evil thought:
11 And thou shalt say, I will go "up"
(you dont go up to attack an enemy coming from the north unless you are going up over canada and coming down to the united states) to the land of unwalled villages
; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely(united states)..(Israel is at war all the time), all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates
