A MESSAGE OUT OF THE HEBREW SCRIPTURES
FOR GOD’s PEOPLE AND FOR THE WORLD
“See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me:
I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal:
neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.”
“Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth,
and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me,
and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:
Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people,
even a marvellous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish,
and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid.”

So much is happening that I quite understand all the concern and alarm. In Ohio there was a recent scare regarding dangerous algae in the water. People were told not to drink the water, not to cook with it, and not to bathe in it and that boiling it does not help. As a result, folks were literally buying water by the truck-loads. As is said, you don’t miss your water until the well runs dry. However, I understand that people are making an effort to correct this dire problem. We’ll see.
And as if that is not enough, great alarm has now reached the point where people are panicking about the spread of ebola, and they are scared to death of catching this highly contagious an deadly disease. All this fear is merely at the thought of ebola spreading to the United States and without any evidence of it reaching…yet. Folks are strange creatures – not funny – strange! They will freak out about a deadly disease, but tell people about GOD’s WORD and HIS WRATH for disobedience to HIS LAW, and they couldn’t care less. There’s no fear whatsoever at learning about what “Thus Saith the LORD GOD”, only indifference and complacency regarding what Our MAKER has required of us.
More importantly, what people do not realize is that it is the CREATOR GOD that kills and makes alive, starts wars, causes storms, Earthquakes, destruction, raises up dreaded diseases like ebola. Therefore, it is for these reasons it is time to panic, but not because of ebola. Ebola is just one of the reasons why we should be shaking in our boots!
“I have commanded my sanctified ones, I have also called my mighty ones for mine anger, even them that rejoice in my highness. The noise of a multitude in the mountains, like as of a great people; a tumultuous noise of the kingdoms of nations gathered together: the Lord of hosts mustereth the host of the battle.
“Howl ye; for the day of the Lord is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty.” Isaiah 13:3,4,6
“Therefore wait ye upon me, saith the Lord, until the day that I rise up to the prey: for my determination is to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them mine indignation, even all my fierce anger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy.” Zephaniah 3:8
“…the Lord is the true God, he is the living God, and an everlasting king: at his wrath the earth shall tremble, and the nations shall not be able to abide his indignation. Thus shall ye say unto them, The gods that have not made the heavens and the earth, even they shall perish from the earth, and from under these heavens. He hath made the earth by his power, he hath established the world by his wisdom, and hath stretched out the heavens by his discretion. When he uttereth his voice, there is a multitude of waters in the heavens, and he causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth; he maketh lightnings with rain, and bringeth forth the wind out of his treasures.” Jeremiah 10:10 – 13
“The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining: And the Lord shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executeth his word: for the day of the Lord is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?” Joel 2:10,11
We are living in the “Day of the LORD”, the “Latter Days”, the end of man’s rule. But who is paying attention, and who is taking heed to FEAR the Most HIGH GOD to obey HIS WORD? The CREATOR has shown us throughout the Hebrew Scriptures that there will be consequences for wickedness and for not following HIS Book of the Law. The fact that the GOD of Israel scattered the Children of Israel into the hands of heathens and to suffer the afflictions of heathens for forsaking HIM and HIS LAW is evidence enough of just how serious the GOD of Israel is about obedience to HIS WORD.
“…Samuel said, Hath the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams. For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry…” I Samuel 15:22
OBEY THE WORD OF THE CREATOR GOD, AND ERR ON THE SIDE OF CAUTION!
“…If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that healeth thee.” Exodus 15:26
“…fear the Lord thy God, to keep all his statutes and his commandments, which I command thee, thou, and thy son, and thy son's son, all the days of thy life; and that thy days may be prolonged.” Deuteronomy 6:2
“Therefore thou shalt keep the commandments of the Lord thy God, to walk in his ways, and to fear him.” Deuteronomy 8:6
“Ye shall walk after the Lord your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him.” Deuteronomy 13:4
“But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee:
“Cursed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and cursed shalt thou be when thou goest out. The Lord shall send upon thee cursing, vexation, and rebuke, in all that thou settest thine hand unto for to do, until thou be destroyed, and until thou perish quickly; because of the wickedness of thy doings, whereby thou hast forsaken me.
“The Lord will smite thee with the botch of Egypt, and with the emerods, and with the scab, and with the itch, whereof thou canst not be healed.
“The Lord shall smite thee with madness, and blindness, and astonishment of heart: And thou shalt grope at noonday, as the blind gropeth in darkness, and thou shalt not prosper in thy ways: and thou shalt be only oppressed and spoiled evermore, and no man shall save thee.
When the CREATOR wrote that “no man shall save thee”, HE was obviously including JC! Thus, this so-called “Saviour of the World” is nothing more than a fraud for he neither saved the Slaves out of 400 years of brutal enslavement nor ended the captivity of the descendants of the Israelites who were scattered into the “Four Corners of the Earth”. Thus, no one can negate GOD’s WORD!
“Thy sons and thy daughters shall be given unto another people, and thine eyes shall look, and fail with longing for them all the day long; and there shall be no might in thine hand.
“Moreover he will bring upon thee all the diseases of Egypt, which thou wast afraid of; and they shall cleave unto thee.” Deuteronomy 28:15,19,27,28,29,32,60
“If ye will fear the Lord, and serve him, and obey his voice, and not rebel against the commandment of the Lord, then shall both ye and also the king that reigneth over you continue following the Lord your God: But if ye will not obey the voice of the Lord, but rebel against the commandment of the Lord, then shall the hand of the Lord be against you, as it was against your fathers.” I Samuel 12:14,15
“He hath made the earth by his power, he hath established the world by his wisdom, and hath stretched out the heavens by his discretion. When he uttereth his voice, there is a multitude of waters in the heavens, and he causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth; he maketh lightnings with rain, and bringeth forth the wind out of his treasures.” Jeremiah 10:12,13
“The Lord is righteous; for I have rebelled against his commandment: hear, I pray you, all people, and behold my sorrow: my virgins and my young men are gone into captivity.” Lamentations 1:18
So, who is Fearing the CREATOR to learn about HIS LAW? Who is seeking to learn the GOD’s TRUTH in this wicked world of White Rule and Control over the defenseless? And who is seeking to know the True and Living GOD instead of seeking after one false religion after another that blinds people and keeps them in gross darkness? Before it is too late, SEEK after the CREATOR GOD, FEAR HIM, and keep HIS Commandments. If people will continue to believe in the “New Testament” and in JC that he is the “way, the truth, and the life” (John 14:6), then why is it that many of the African peoples who have died from ebola were Christians? THINK!
THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER IS…”That thou mayest love the Lord thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which the Lord sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.” Deuteronomy 30:20
And it is the LAW of this CREATOR GOD that is what HE has Commanded of us to observe to do: “And he said unto them, Set your hearts unto all the words which I testify among you this day, which ye shall command your children to observe to do, all the words of this law. For it is not a vain thing for you; because it is your life: and through this thing ye shall prolong your days in the land, whither ye go over Jordan to possess it.” Deuteronomy 32:46,47
“The Lord is well pleased for his righteousness' sake; he will magnify the law, and make it honourable.” Isaiah 42:21
“The meek also shall increase their joy in the Lord, and the poor among men shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel.
“Therefore thus saith the Lord, who redeemed Abraham, concerning the house of Jacob, Jacob shall not now be ashamed, neither shall his face now wax pale. But when he seeth his children, the work of mine hands, in the midst of him, they shall sanctify my name, and sanctify the Holy One of Jacob, and shall fear the God of Israel. They also that erred in spirit shall come to understanding, and they that murmured shall learn doctrine.” Isaiah 29:19, 22 - 24
“And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord come. And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the Lord hath said, and in the remnant whom the Lord shall call.” Joel 2:30 – 32
O’ yeah, regardless of what people believe given the happenings around the world: Israeli mass murders, an evasion by the Russians, or an ebola outbreak, the Most HIGH CREATOR GOD will get the attention HE most certainly DESERVES whether Israelites are involved in these disasters or not! Thus, our fear should be of the CREATOR for HE is the MIGHTY GOD that can and will cause all manner of devouring fire, thunder and lightning, captivity, catastrophes, calamity, and plague! The POWERS and WORKS of the Most HIGH GOD cannot be measured. However, we can surmise that HE is with us to keep us safe when we worship ONLY HIM and live according to HIS Righteous Way of Life.
CALL UPON THE CREATOR IN TRUTH, AND LIVE ACCORDING TO HIS EXPECTATIONS!
