Isaiah 34)

1 Come near, all you nations, to hear; (Now this is important. God is saying come near. And nations in the plural means all races. This is important to you) and listen, all you peoples: let the earth hear, (Thatís this globe on which we reside) and all that is therein; the inhabited world, and all things that are therein. (Many people will ask, ďWell when is my particular race addressed in Godís word?Ē, well this is all. This means all of the races are addressed in this specific verse. God said, this message is for you.)
2 For the indignation of the Lord is upon all nations, () and His fury upon all their armies: He has utterly destroyed them (= devoted to destruction, or, placed under a Divine ban), He has delivered them to the slaughter. (All of the nations are placed under it, and donít forget what the enemy is of the end times is, itís deception. Itís for nations to be deceived. And quite frankly, if you look at the nations of the world today where we sit, the United Nations is supposed to be that part that comes to agreement. Do you know that we have 400 United Nation troops that are supposed to be peace keepers that are captives at this time? And in our nation that is blessed, the super power of super powers of the free world, we have young children gunning each other down as though they were dueling in the streets as times of old. We have lost the ability to respect each other with dignity in as much as we are taught by the so-called educational system that we are all one and you must always think of one, rather than respecting each others religions and/or beliefs and respecting them with dignity whereby you dignify and respect that people. People strike out and they know not why. How interesting. Godís word is so precious.)
3 Their slain also shall be cast out, and their stink shall come up out of their carcasses, and the mountains shall be melted with their blood. (Fig. of speech, Hyperbole. So vv.4 and 5. Weíre looking forward here to the final hour of this age, that is to say the age of the flesh. What happens in the final hour? Youíve heard it taught by Paul, our Father Himself, that in an instant the flesh is put off and the spiritual body in the twinkle of an eye, what happens to all those flesh bodies?)
4 And all the host of heaven shall be dissolved, and the heavens shall be rolled together as a scroll: and all their host shall fall down, as the leaf falls off from the vine, and as a falling fig from the fig tree. (Do you know what happens to an old fig when itís overripe and it falls from the fig tree, big old nice plump thing? It splatters. Itís not a good falling. Why would it mention that? Have we got bad people in heaven? Heaven is going to be rolled up like a scroll? Is it not written in 2 Peter 3:10 that this earth age shall be destroyed by fire? Only it is the what, specifically, that will be destroyed? The elements, which is a Greek word meaning rudiments.

KJV Strong's G4747 matches the Greek; (stoicheion).

(rudiment*) AND G4747 occurs in 2 verses in the KJV

Which means only the evil not the good. God isnít angry at those that care. None of us are perfect but if you care and if you try to serve him He has no argument with you as far as destroying you or anything about you. But the evil fig, as the fading fig, shall be destroyed. Now many would say, "Well what does He mean, heaven is rolled up?Ē" We move into the 3rd heaven age, from the second age to the third age, when that particular time comes. And never forget, as Christ would teach you in Luke chapter 16 concerning the parable of Lazarus and the rich man. When you see paradise and you see Lazarus, which is a Greek word that is the equivalent to the Hebrew word Eleazar which is the chief priest of Aaronís son, meaning preacher Ė teacher, was in the bosom of Abraham. In other words he was brought back to good standing through Christís teachings. But the rich man was across a gulf that man could not cross. In other words, where do the dead people go? Well to be absent from this body is to be present with the Lord (see: 2 Cor. 5:8). They are in paradise but not in good standing. So naturally there must be a millennium, thus it shall be, and thatís why Heíll say here in a moment that his sword will be bathed in heaven as well. It takes a little house keeping on all quarters.)

5 For My sword shall be bathed in heaven: (What is His sword? Revelation 1:16, His tongue is a two-edged sword, itís His word.) behold, it shall come down upon Idumea, and upon the people of My curse (i.e. I have devoted), to judgment. (Now that geographical location, as it is written in Ezekiel 38 and 39 - two chapters before the millennium begins, of course you know is the North country, the country of Esau.)
6 The sword of the Lord is filled with blood, it is made fat with fatness, (In other words itís going to have plenty to do.) and with the blood of lambs and goats, with the fat of the kidneys of rams:

for the Lord has a sacrifice in Bozrah, (Bozrah was a fortress of Edom. Understand this is a prelude to Ezekiel 38 and 39) and a great slaughter in the land of Idumea. (You know we purchased Alaska from Idumea, that is to say the land of Rush, which you will find written in Godís word in the 38th chapter of Ezekiel, the second verse. In English, it is to you, the chief prince. Chief prince in the Hebrew tongue is the chief prince of Rush and itís still the same to this day. Donít worry. We have a cold war that ended. Godís word will come to pass exactly as it is written.)
7 And the oxes (or rhinoceros) shall come down with them, and the bullocks with the bulls; and their land shall be drunken with blood, and their dust made fat with fatness. (These were animals of sacrifice and what God is telling you is Iím going to have My part. And Heís saying that the earth will be fertilized with their blood. Well who knows in a sense, we might find out what happens there in that shift of dimension to the flesh.)

8 For it is the Day for the Lord's vengeance, (Do you know when that happens? Thatís when He returns) and the year of recompenses for the controversy of Zion. (Where geographically? Zion. Thereís only one place in Godís word referred to as Zion and that is Mount Zion. And on the North side of Mount Zion is Godís favorite place. He made an everlasting covenant in Ezekiel chapter 16. He said, This is My favorite spot. And naturally thatís where His temple is. So on the day of recompense, those that understand our Fatherís word know that He loves His children, all of them, I donít care what race or color you are, that He loves you, and in as much as you try, even though you fall short at times, repent and get back in good standing. Heís not angry with you. And in as much as our Father is a consuming fire as it is written in the last verse of Hebrews chapter 12, His fire does not affect you. His fire burns that which is evil. His fire to you is the Shekinah glory or the Holy Spirit that warms your heart. All evil shall be destroyed with that sword of the Lord, which is to say, His word. His word today alleviates anxieties, troubles, and heartaches and solves those problems, His love does. Because it causes you, as you absorb His wisdom, to know how to handle your life whereby you can take care of problems with His help. But on that day of vengeance, which is the subject of this particular part of our lecture, when will it happen? Well, it will happen during the time of the fig tree.)

9 And the streams thereof shall be turned into pitch, and the dust thereof into brimstone, and the land thereof shall become burning pitch.
10 It shall not be quenched night nor day; the smoke thereof shall go up for ever: from generation to generation it shall lie waste; none shall pass through it for ever and ever.

11 But the cormorant and the bittern shall possess it; the owl also and the raven shall dwell in it:

and He shall stretch out upon it the line of confusion, and the stones of emptiness. (Heb. tuhu ... bohu. See Gen. 1:2, "without form and void" = waste and desolate. See also Jer. 4:23. See 24:10. "Stones" being put for what causes the land to lie empty or untilled)

12 They shall call the nobles thereof to the kingdom, but none shall be there, and all her princes shall be nothing.

13 And thorns shall climb in her palaces, nettles and brambles in the fortresses thereof:

and it shall be an habitation of dragons, and a court for owls.
14 The wild beasts of the desert shall also meet with the wild beasts of the island, and the satyr shall cry to his fellow; the screech owl also shall rest there (Heb. Lilith. Used today of any being of the night, as the English "bogy" [i.e. bogey man] in used. Charms are used against it today in Palestine), and find for herself a roost.
15 There shall the great owl make her nest, and lay, and hatch, and gather under her shadow: there shall the vultures also be gathered, every one with her mate.
16 Search you all out of the book of the Lord (this proves there was a Book in existence, which could be searched), and read: no one of these shall be missing, none shall want her mate: for My mouth it has commanded, and His Spirit (Ruach) it has gathered them.

17 And He has cast the lot for them, and His hand has divided it to them by line: they shall possess it for ever, from generation to generation shall they dwell therein.
