America is heedlessly plunging toward the greatest national humiliation of her history! It is time you faced the cold hard facts of prophecy – it’s time you knew the truth about your own future!
Slavery has not been abolished from the earth. At this very moment, millions of hapless human beings are in abject slavery under the iron rule of ruthless dictators in various countries around the world.
History is filled with the accounts of captive peoples, held as slaves in the aftermath of war, bought and sold laborers, herded and driven as cattle. The bestialities imposed on men, women and children in past ages in the name of religion are virtually unbelievable.
Most of these shrink into the distant past, and are easily forgotten. Not so easily forgotten are the scenes of the concentration camps, the slave labor camps, of the Nazis during the Second World War. The untold suffering during World War II by millions of Jews, Poles, Czechs, Belgians, Lowlanders and others will never be accurately recorded. But simple eyewitness accounts, described in war trials, serve to bring a keyhole glimpse into the blackest chapter of modern history.
A former prisoner at Maidenak, near Lublin, for instance, describes to the Polish-Soviet Atrocities Commission some of the executions he had witnessed: “In Oct., 1942, a great number of women and children were brought to the camp. Those in good health were picked out for work, while the exhausted and sick women as well as children were asphyxiated in a gas cell. In March, 1943, 250 more women and children were murdered with gas in the same cell. On May 16 or 17, 1943, 158 children of two to ten years were brought to the camp in trucks. These children were murdered in a gas cell.”
A captured German SS trooper, testifying before the Polish-Soviet Atrocities Commission said: “On the evening of Oct., 21, 1943, Camp Doctor SS Untersurm-fuhrer Rindfleisch told me that on that very day 300 children of 3 to 10 years of age had been asphyxiated with the cyclone preparation (a type of gas released from pellets thrown into a small chamber) in a gas cell.”
I know that it is horrifying! It’s difficult to believe such cruelties and bestial treatment could be perpetrated on helpless women and children, sick, wounded and exhausted prisoners of war! But it happened!
And your Bible foretells it will happen again on a more gigantic scale than ever before!
You will be astounded, 5 to 10 years from now, by the many changes on the international scene. There is a shifting, changing, pulsating series of events taking place between nations at this moment that have a great deal to do with your life!
For years, God’s Church has been making Bible prophecies clear. This straight-from-the-shoulder, courageous Church has dared to tell you what none others has, and back it up from the Bible! These startling prophecies show a dramatic change underway now, a shifting of power in Europe and the East, the beginning struggles of a vast trade war that is yet to burst into full bloom, and drastic changes taking place within our own borders that will threaten the nation’s very existence.
Do not be deceived! It’s easy to “kid” yourself by seeking the temporary pastimes of motion pictures, TV, novels and comic strips – it’s easy to play the role of the “escapist” who wants to forget about it all, but the situations developing around you are real, and you are going to be affected by them!
Without realizing it, the stage is being set for a coming war! It is all revealed in Bible prophecy. But the vital keys to prophecy have remained hidden during the centuries, until it came God’s time to reveal them to His servants!
God promises, “Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets” (Amos 3:7).
One of the greatest keys to Biblical prophecy is the duality of prophecy. You have often heard the statement, “History repeats itself.” There is a reason! It is because there is One who is guiding and molding history! History is only recording of world events as they occur! But prophecy is a recording of those world events in advance. And God has foretold some staggering things for our nations!
Ezekiel was sent from God as a watchman, to give the people warning about impending national disaster unless they repented of their sins! God has set His watchmen today. And a great warning is being issued from the Church of God New World Ministries and through this website.
In the first few chapters of Ezekiel, some of the most shocking prophecies of the whole Bible are revealed. God sent Ezekiel to a rebellious, and a stiff-necked people – Israel (Ezk. 2:3-10).
We (the United States of America and England) are Israel! We believe these to be the modern names for the 12 tribes of Israel:
Reuben – France
Asher – Belgium & Luxemburg
Simeon & Levi - Scattered
Gad – Switzerland
Judah – Scattered & in Israel
Naphtali – Sweden
Zebulon - Holland
Ephraim – England
Issachar - Finland
Manasseh – United States
Dan – Denmark & Ireland
Benjamin – Norway
The entire Bible centers around Israel and Judah, and one third of the whole Bible is prophecy!
But God said the warning to be carried was not of man’s devising, it was a warning straight from Almighty God Himself! “Son of man, I have made thee a watchman over the House of Israel. Therefore hear the word of MY MOUTH, and give them warning from ME!” (Ezk. 3:17).
Then God gave Ezekiel a mysterious duty to perform. He said “And thou, son of man, take thee a sharp knife, take thee a barber’s razor, and cause it to pass upon thine head and upon thy beard. Then take the balances to weigh and divide the hair.”
What a strange commission to perform! What did God mean by it? “Thou shalt burn with fire a third part in the midst of the city, when the days of the siege are fulfilled, and thou shalt take a third part, and smite it about with a knife, and a third part thou shalt scatter in the wind, and I will draw out a sword after them” (Ezk. 5:1-2).
God then revealed to Ezekiel what the meaning of the dividing of the hair was. He said, “Because ye multiplied more than the nations that are round about you, and have not walked in My statutes, neither have kept my judgments, neither have done according to the judgments of the nations that are round about you, Therefore thus said the Lord God. Behold, I, even I, am against thee, and will execute judgments in the midst of thee in sight of the nations” (Ezk. 5:7-8).
God says we have not obeyed His perfect laws! Today, we hear the hue and cry from every quarter that God’s laws are “done away!” You’ve been hearing “another gospel” of no works, no obedience to God! God indicts any who dare to preach such a message in many different scriptures. Read Jer. 23, Ezk. 12, 34, Mal. 3 for just a few!
“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me, seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children” (Hosea 4:6).
We believe in lawlessness today! We have been duped by false religious doctrines of no law! And God says He is going to punish us because of it. Ezekiel went on to describe horrifying events to take place!
“And I will do in thee that which I have not done, and whereunto I will not do any more the like because of all thine abominations. Therefore the fathers shall eat the sons in the midst of thee, and the sons shall eat their fathers, and I will execute judgments in thee, and the whole remnant of thee will I scatter into the winds” (Ezk. 5:9-10). Not pleasant to think about, is it?
Lord Russell of Liverpool, cataloging German atrocities during World War II in his book entitled “Scourge of the Swastika,” described hints of cannibalistic practices among starving prisoners in Hitler’s concentration camps! And God say it shall happen again!
“A third part of thee shall die with the pestilence, and with famine shall they be consumed in the midst of thee, and a third part shall fall by the sword (a symbol of armed attack, of war) round about thee, and I will scatter a third part into all the winds, and I will draw out a sword after them” (Ezk. 5:12).
That is what God meant by the dividing of the hair! The hair symbolized the people, and the prophecy is for today! This prophecy was for the House of Israel! And it foretells of a future armed attacked from enemy nations, a scattering into slavery of the final remnant of the population! The changes taking place in the United States and Great Britain and all over the world are bringing about that very prophecy!
In a special bulletin appearing in the Los Angeles Herald Express, April 30, 1956, a Congressional expert said that 57 million Americans living in metropolitan areas would have only I chance in 100 of escaping “sure death” if an atomic-hydrogen war should come now! But, that was 53 years ago. How much greater would the death toll would be today with the increase in population and greater weapons of mass destruction?
It is time for America to wake up before it is too late (we may have passed the point of no return already)!
God’s prophet said a third would be left alive, but that third would be “scattered” into all the winds. That means they’ll be taken into many different nations as captives and used as abject slaves. They will be used to build bridges, hydro-electric projects, highways, airfields, housing, and other major construction projects. Even as our forefathers were forced to construct huge cities for the Pharaohs, so will our generation build for a modern Babylon, a spiritual Egypt!
Ezekiel the 27th chapter is a dual prophecy! This amazing prophecy identifies certain nations who will be trading back and forth with the revived Roman Empire coming in Europe! Read verse 13! “Javan, Tubal and Meshech, they were thy merchants, they were thy merchants, they traded the persons of men and vessels of brass in thy market.” Javan is the Hebrew word for Greece. It is so rendered, wherever it is translated into the English. Tubal represents the “Great Russians,” along with Meshech. We derive “Tobolsk and Moscow” from these tribal names.
God pictures slavery going on between the Great Russians and Greece in the future! Read Joel 3:3-6! This same power, the Roman Empire revived, is figuratively called Tyre in the Bible. Ancient Tyre was a type of a modern “Babylon” which will be directly responsible for these atrocities in the future. It is pictured as trading with the Greeks, trading Jewish captives! “The children also of Judah and the children of Jerusalem have ye sold unto the Grecians, that ye might remove them far from their border.”
The 18th chapter of Revelation is a direct parallel with Ezekiel 27.The two chapters are describing the same great city, a city in a nation that is in the midst of the seas! The people of ancient Tyre gave their name to one of the seas, the Tyrrhenian Sea and also a chain of mountains forming the “backbone” of the entire country, call the Tyrrhenian Mountains!
God pronounces the coming destruction of this great city and the nation that spawned her! And John revealed, in the prophecy of Rev. 18, that this very city is responsible for dealing in the captive Israelites, selling like so much merchandise, both living and dead human beings!
“And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her, for no man buys their merchandise any more. The merchandise of gold and cinnamon and wine and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men” (Rev. 18:11-13). The Greek word here rendered “souls” comes from “psuche” and it rendered body in some translations. Here are live slaves, and even dead bodies being bought and sold!
Even as trainloads of captive Jews, Poles and Czechs rumbled across Europe in 1940, ’41, ’42 and ’43, and as Hitler’s efficient scientists conceived of the burning of bodies, and scattering their crushed bones and ashes on the fields for fertilizer, so shall these things be done again! But this time – unless we repent of our sins and call out to God in real dead earnest, it will happen here!
Just as God called Moses and Aaron, and sent them to the ancient Pharaoh to deliver His people, so God will set His hand a second time to recover those that survive the coming time of great trial!
Notice Ezekiel was also told to hide a few of the hairs! “Thou shalt also take thereof a few in number, and bind them in thy skirts: (Ezk. 5:3). Later, God revealed, “Yet will I leave a remnant, that ye may have some that shall escape the sword among the nations, when ye shall be scattered through the countries” (Ezk 6:8).God shows it is only by means of slavery that our peoples will finally come to their senses! Deut. 4:26-31, notice the words latter days in verse 30. “And they that escape of you shall remember me among the nations whither they shall be carried captives, because I have broken their whorish heart which hath departed from me, and with their eyes which go a whoring after their idols, and they shall loathe themselves for the evils which they have committed in all their abominations. And they shall know that I am the Eternal, and that I have not said in vain that I would do this evil unto them” (Ezk. 6:9-10).
While these now dejected, humbled wretched people are under the oppressor’s heel, God will again send two witnesses to plead with the Beast and the false prophet “Let my people go!” Read the 11th chapter of Revelation! Just as God sent an ancient Moses and Aaron to Egypt – So God will send two modern men, His two witnesses, who will have power to “smite the earth with plagues” as did Moses and Aaron!
“Thus saith the Lord of Hosts. The children of Israel and the children of Judah (two separate nations) were oppressed together, and all that took them captives held them fast, they refused to let them go. Their Redeemer is strong; the Eternal of Hosts is His name, He shall thoroughly plead their cause.” (Jer. 50:33-34).
Jesus Christ will plead by miracles, by plagues, by signs and wonders! God will plead with all flesh! Finally, Jesus Christ Himself will return to this earth, in all the power of the Great Creator God! He will then set Himself to gather His people who have been scattered through all nations! Another great exodus is yet future! God says, of this great time, “Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that it shall no more be said, “The Lord liveth, that brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt, but, The Lord liveth, that brought up the children of Israel from the land of the north, and from all the lands whither He had driven them, and I will bring them again into their land that I gave unto their fathers” (Jer. 16:14-15).
God says you don’t need to suffer! There is something you can do about it! “Therefore also now, saith the Lord, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping and with mourning. And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the Eternal your God, for He is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth Him of the evil” (Joel 2:12-13).
God now commands all men everywhere to repent (Acts 17:30). Jesus said, “Except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish!” (Luke 13:3-5). Those who turn to God, calling on the blood of Jesus Christ to blot out their sins, their transgression against the perfect law of God, those who truly rend their hearts in sincere repentance can be spared from these hair-raising times yet to come!
“Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man” (Luke 21:36).
Therein lies a direct promise from Christ Himself! If He finds you watching world events, praying to your heavenly Father, obedient to God, with the love of God in your heart and His Holy Spirit to change your life, He says you can be worthy to escape these monstrous times that are to come! May God help you to repent! This is the way out for you! Grasp it while you may!
