Under a shroud of secrecy, an Indonesian delegation visited the Knesset. The most populous Muslim country in the world does not have diplomatic relations with Israel, but a Jewish Australian organization working on Zionist advocacy succeeded in bringing the group to Israel. The delegation was led by Indonesian MP Tantowi Yahya in what Israel Hayom wrote was possibly the first time Indonesian government representatives visited Israel and met with Israeli government officials. The group met with Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein.

Remember this basic principle of these prophecies.
If physical Israel of the Mosaic Covenant was corrected by Christ for their breaking of that Covenant: Those of the spiritual Israel of the New Covenant, shall be corrected in far greater measure for their tolerance of sin and false teachings among them. For the Holy Spirit has been entrusted to those who made a baptismal commitment .
Luk 12:47 And that servant, which knew his lord’s will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. 48 But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.
Ariel “Lion of God” is the personification of Jerusalem. And as the capitol, Jerusalem is a type of the nation itself; both physical and spiritual.
Sacrifices without obedience is an exercise in futility. Claims of being God’s people without zealously obeying God is foolishness and vanity.
29:1 Woe to Ariel, to Ariel [Jerusalem], the city where David dwelt! add ye year to year; let them kill sacrifices.
Messiah will correct Jerusalem with a heavy heart for he he loves her.
29:2 Yet I will distress Ariel, and there shall be heaviness and sorrow: and it shall be unto me as Ariel.
Jerusalem shall be occupied and trodden down of the Gentiles often through the ages but at this end time she shall be trodden down for 42 months and then Messiah shall come to deliver her.
29:3 And I will camp against thee round about, and will lay siege against thee with a mount, and I will raise forts against thee. 29:4 And thou shalt be brought down, and shalt speak out of the ground, and thy speech shall be low out of the dust, and thy voice shall be, as of one that hath a familiar spirit, out of the ground, and thy speech shall whisper out of the dust.
29:5 Moreover the multitude of thy strangers shall be like small dust, and the multitude of the terrible ones shall be as chaff that passeth away: yea, it shall be at an instant suddenly.
When Christ comes with his chosen he shall deliver the city which shall become the capitol of all the earth.
29:6 Thou shalt be visited of the LORD of hosts with thunder, and with earthquake, and great noise, with storm and tempest, and the flame of devouring fire.
And her troubles and the nations fighting over Jerusalem shall seem like a very bad dream!
29:7 And the multitude of all the nations that fight against Ariel, even all that fight against her and her munition, and that distress her, shall be as [like] a dream of a night vision.
29:8 It shall even be as when an hungry man dreameth, and, behold, he eateth; but he awaketh, and his soul is empty: or as when a thirsty man dreameth, and, behold, he drinketh; but he awaketh, and, behold, he is faint, and his soul hath appetite: so shall the multitude of all the nations be, that fight against mount Zion.
Jerusalem and all the nations have become intoxicated, drunk with pride and self will, therefore Christ has allowed them to be deceived that they should not avoid the correction being poured out to try the whole earth.
29:9 Stay yourselves, and wonder; cry ye out, and cry: they are drunken, but not with wine; they stagger, but not with strong drink. 29:10 For the LORD hath poured out upon you the spirit of deep sleep, and hath closed your eyes: the prophets and your rulers, the seers hath he covered.
The church leaders and the national leaders do not understand what is happening, nor do they understand the warnings from gGd; for they are proud and will not repent to have their eyes opened to all the teachings [doctrines] and commandments of God.
29:11 And the vision of all is become unto you as the words of a book that is sealed, which men deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I cannot; for it is sealed: 29:12 And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I am not learned.
Speaking to the nations, and speaking directly to all of the church of God groups who have made a baptismal commitment to learn of and obey Christ; Isaiah goes directly to the issue:
We call ourselves godly as we do what is right in our own eyes and reject any zeal for learning the doctrines [teachings] and keeping the commandments in obedience of Christ.
29:13 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:
Jesus Christ will reject the lukewarm who are hot for their own ways and cold for his ways and will allow them to fall into great tribulation.
29:14 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.
Some of these present day wicked COG elders and leaders who seek to hide their despicable deeds behind an appearance of religiosity have been exposed by this blog, but they are ALL are known to God!
29:15 Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the LORD, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who seeth us? and who knoweth us?
Those who teach tolerance for sin and false teachings; which lead people away from, and separate them from Christ; are in rebellion against their Maker.
These wicked men who teach that tolerance for the sin which separates us from Christ is some kind of ”spiritual unity”; teaching the abomination that unity with men is better than a true spiritual unity with Christ; shall be corrected and the unrepentant shall be destroyed.
29:16 Surely your turning of things upside down [tolerating evil and teaching against the good] shall be esteemed as the potter’s clay: for shall the work say of him that made it, He made me not? or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, He had no understanding?
Very soon now; after the tribulation when Christ comes with his choses, the Spirit of God shall be poured out on all flesh, Joel 2:28; and humanity will have their eyes opened in wholehearted repentance and zeal to learn and keep the whole Word of God.
29:17 Is it not yet a very little while, and Lebanon shall be turned into a fruitful field, and the fruitful field shall be esteemed as a forest? 29:18 And in that day shall the deaf hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity, and out of darkness. 29:19 The meek also shall increase their joy in the LORD, and the poor among men shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel.
All the wicked shall be brought to nothing, and those who scorn the Word of god shall be consumed in the terrible correction.
29:20 For the terrible one is brought to nought, and the scorner is consumed, and all that watch [seek evil] for iniquity are cut off:
The false accuser and the bribe taker and the false judge shall be destroyed from the Kingdom of Justice and true Equity.
29:21 That make a man an offender for a word, and lay a snare for him that reproveth in the gate, and turn aside the just for a thing of nought.
Abraham shall be raised up and shall rejoice that his children are brought to understand the wisdom of Christ and have turned in sincere repentance to KEEP the Will and Word of God!
29:22 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. 29:23 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.
29:24 They also that erred in spirit shall come to understanding, and they that murmured shall learn doctrine.
Woe to all those who do not seek Jesus Christ to learn and keep all his ways, will, teachings [doctrines] and commandments. WOE to all those who follow anyone or organization instead of the Eternal! WOE to all those who cover themselves with pride to go their own ways and not with the righteousness of the Law of God!
30:1 Woe to the rebellious children, saith the LORD, that take counsel, but not of me; and that cover with a covering, but not of my spirit, that they may add sin to sin:
Israel was delivered from Pharaoh and Egypt which is prophetically a type of sin. Woe to all those who desire to go back into the sin that Christ delivered us out of. WOE to all those who teach tolerance for sin and false doctrine, which separates us from spiritual unity with Christ, for the sake of unity with men!
Isaiah 50 Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: 2 But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.
Isaiah 30:2 That walk to go down into Egypt [back into sin], and have not asked at my mouth [have not lived by the word of God] ; to strengthen themselves [to trust in sin and the ways of wickedness] in the strength of Pharaoh, and to trust in the shadow of Egypt!
Those who trust in the ways of sin and false teachings instead of all the teachings [doctrines] and commandments of Christ shall be confounded.
30:3 Therefore shall the strength of Pharaoh be your shame, and the trust in the shadow of Egypt your confusion.
When the ambassadors of Judah went down into Egypt [more in Jeremiah] they found no safety there. When church leaders and elders water down true sound doctrine and reject knowledge from God, to seek numbers and money from the worldly, trusting in the worldly and not putting their trust in Christ to obey him; they shall find no safety there.
30:4 For his princes were at Zoan, and his ambassadors came to Hanes.
As physical Judah became ashamed for going down to their destruction in Egypt; so spiritual Judah of the lukewarm for Christ shall also be ashamed of trusting in their own ways and the worldly instead of being zealous for Christ and all his law and teachings.
30:5 They were all ashamed of a people that could not profit them, nor be an help nor profit, but a shame, and also a reproach.
30:6 The burden of the beasts [nations] of the south [south of Egypt, Africa] : into the land of trouble and anguish, from [where dwell] whence come the young and old lion, the viper and fiery flying serpent, they [Babylon the great; the New Europe] will carry their riches upon the shoulders of young asses, and their treasures upon the bunches of camels, to a people that shall not profit [not help them but carry away all their possessions] them.
Egypt can do nothing against the New Europe; they cannot even preserve themselves.
Physical Egypt is no help; and those who trust in the spiritual Egypt of tolerance for sin and false teachings shall find destruction.
30:7 For the Egyptians shall help in vain, and to no purpose: therefore have I cried concerning this, Their strength is to sit still.
Jesus tells Isaiah to write and record that Israel and Judah are a rebellious people.
The same has become true of spiritual Israel in this latter day; for they follow men and corporations making idols of them, and doing their own ways; rejecting the law of their God as ancient Judah and Israel did.
30:8 Now go, write it before them in a table, and note it in a book, that it may be for the time to come for ever and ever:
Those who teach tolerance for false teachings and who will not rebuke sin; those who have no zeal for all the teachings and commandments of Christ, even if they have a certain zeal for men and organizations, even though they call themselves God’s people; are liars and rebellious people and not the children of God.
30:9 That this is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the law of the LORD:
Today the COG leaders and most elders reject the calls to repentance, saying do not rebuke our sins, but teach us how great, righteous and godly we are.
30:10 Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things [don't rebuke our sins], speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits:
Today the COG leaders and most elders and brethren reject the calls to repentance; they will do what the organization says even if it is contrary to scripture. We will not question or prove out what we are taught by the Holy Scriptures, we are content to follow men and not Christ. We are willing to tolerate sin and false teachings for the sake of an appearance of organizational unity if we are told to do so; even though such tolerance is sin and separates us from spiritual unity with Christ!
30:11 Get you out of the way, turn aside out of the path, cause the Holy One of Israel [exalt men over Christ] to cease from before us.
Because we pollute Sabbath and High Days, because we reject any zeal for Christ, his teachings and commandments; because we idolize men and exalt them above the Word of God: WE SHALL be rejected by Christ and be afflicted with the rod of his correction.
30:12 Wherefore thus saith the Holy One of Israel, Because ye despise this word, and trust in oppression and perverseness, and stay thereon:
The church of God groups who do these things and are loyal to men, equating that loyalty to men with loyalty to God, are like a wall that is slowly bulging out, until in an instant it bursts and collapses
30:13 Therefore this iniquity shall be to you as a breach ready to fall, swelling out in a high wall, whose breaking cometh suddenly at an instant.
Like a piece of pottery thrown against a wall the corporate COG groups shall be smashed, so that there is nothing left of them. Then after these idols are destroyed the people will be humbled to turn to their espoused Husband directly and to the Word of God.
30:14 And he shall break it as the breaking of the potters’ vessel that is broken in pieces; he shall not spare: so that there shall not be found in the bursting of it a sherd to take fire from the hearth, or to take water withal out of the pit.
Those who trust in dead and living men and not in the Word of God; shall be corrected and their idols shall be smashed. Those who are repentant and are zealous to learn and keep the ways of the Mighty One their Deliverer and espoused Husband shall be saved.
30:15 For thus saith the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel; In returning and rest shall ye be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength: and ye would not.
Those who say that they shall escape by fleeing shall be overtaken and corrected. For the organizations which speak of fleeing are deceived with strong delusion and will lean to their own understanding of when to go; and will NOT follow the instructions of the servants of Christ.
30:16 But ye said, No; for we will flee upon horses; therefore shall ye flee: and, We will ride upon the swift; therefore shall they that pursue you be swift.
Christ shall fill both physical and spiritual Israel with terror until we repent and become a beacon of righteousness.
30:17 One thousand shall flee at the rebuke of one; at the rebuke of five shall ye flee: till ye be left as a beacon upon the top of a mountain, and as an ensign on an hill.
Jesus Christ will wait for the repentance of physical and spiritual Israel, and for us to exalt him above men and organizations.
30:18 And therefore will the LORD wait, that he may be gracious unto you, and therefore will he be exalted, that he may have mercy upon you: for the LORD is a God of judgment: blessed are all they that wait for him.
When Christ comes with his chosen the people will be repentant and will follow him; he will cleanse us and he will heal us; in his tender mercies all Israel and humanity itself will repent and be grafted into Israel and shall be saved.
30:19 For the people shall dwell in Zion at Jerusalem: thou shalt weep no more: he will be very gracious unto thee at the voice of thy cry; when he shall hear it, he will answer thee.
In the Kingdom men will respond to correction with repentance and zeal to follow all the ways of Christ. Sin and false teachings will not be tolerated.
30:20 And though the Lord give you the bread of adversity, and the water of affliction, yet shall not thy teachers be removed into a corner any more, but thine eyes shall see thy teachers: 30:21 And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.
All who teach tolerance for false teachings and sin; and all our idols and idolatry shall be cast aside and destroyed from among the people. No more will a person follow blindly without question whatever some man teaches; Instead they shall follow what Christ teaches and if any man teaches a false Christ that will overlook sib; he shall be destroyed from among the people as a false teacher.
Deu 13 If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder, 2 And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them;
3 Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the Lord your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul. 4 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.
5 And that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams, shall be put to death; because he hath spoken to turn you away from the Lord your God
Brethren the church of God groups are mostly led and definitely filled with false teachers who have led you away from the Eternal God. WHY? To test the pillars for their absolute loyalty to HIM.
The pillars shall have offices in the new Jerusalem permanently forever and shall rest on the foundation of Jesus Christ and the scriptures forever! They shall be in leadership positions working directly with the Father and Christ forever.
This means that those who are to be chosen as pillars, need to be tested to the ultimate degree, so that the Father can be absolutely convinced of their fitness for those positions.
God has allowed these false teachers so that his pillars will be tested to see if they will be loyal to Christ even under the most extreme deceptions; that is why the COG has been split up into groups, each one appealing to a different type of person with its own kind of deception.
30:22 Ye shall defile also the covering of thy graven images of silver, and the ornament of thy molten images of gold: thou shalt cast them away as a menstruous cloth; thou shalt say unto it, Get thee hence.
When we repent and turn to follow all the teachings and commandments of Christ, he shall give us the rain [water] of his spirit. And in the Kingdom, because the nations are repentant and obey him; he shall give rain in due season and the blessings of the harvest.
30:23 Then shall he give the rain of thy seed, that thou shalt sow the ground withal; and bread of the increase of the earth, and it shall be fat and plenteous: in that day shall thy cattle feed in large pastures. 30:24 The oxen likewise and the young asses that ear the ground shall eat clean provender, which hath been winnowed with the shovel and with the fan.
The earth shall be well watered physically in the Kingdom, and spiritually every government and person shall be filled with the waters of life; the Holy Spirit!
30:25 And there shall be upon every high mountain, and upon every high hill, rivers and streams of waters in the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall.
At the time that the Kingdom is established there shall be a great light of the moon and the sun.
30:26 Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that the LORD bindeth up the breach of his people, and healeth the stroke of their wound.
The great battle when Christ comes; Christ shall bring the armies of the wicked up against Jerusalem.
30:27 Behold, the name of the LORD cometh from far, burning with his anger, and the burden thereof is heavy: his lips are full of indignation, and his tongue as a devouring fire: 30:28 And his breath, as an overflowing stream, shall reach to the midst of the neck, to sift the nations with the sieve of vanity: and there shall be a bridle in the jaws of the people, causing them to err.
Israel and Judah shall rejoice in the day of their deliverance.
30:29 Ye shall have a song, as in the night when a holy solemnity is kept; and gladness of heart, as when one goeth with a pipe [bagpipes and joyful music] to come into the mountain of the LORD, to the mighty One of Israel.
Christ shall destroy the armies of the east and north and shall strike down the armies of the New Europe and the German armies with them at Jerusalem when he comes with his chosen.
30:30 And the LORD shall cause his glorious voice to be heard, and shall shew the lighting down of his arm, with the indignation of his anger, and with the flame of a devouring fire, with scattering, and tempest, and hailstones. 30:31 For through the voice of the LORD shall the Assyrian [German] be beaten down, which smote with a rod. 30:32 And in every place where the grounded staff shall pass, which the LORD shall lay upon him, it shall be with tabrets and harps: and in battles of shaking will he fight with it.
Tophet is the valley of Hinnom [Gehenna]; there Christ shall destroy the armies of the wicked.
30:33 For Tophet is ordained of old; yea, for the king it is prepared; he hath made it deep and large: the pile thereof is fire and much wood; the breath of the LORD, like a stream of brimstone, doth kindle it.
WOE to the people who put their trust in Egypt: WOE, WOE, WOE to all those of Spiritual Israel that begin to put their trust in the worldliness of spiritual Egypt! Who trust in their own ways and in the false teachings of men and corporate churches instead of in the Word of Life, Jesus Christ!
31:1 Woe to them that go down to Egypt for help; and stay on horses, and trust in chariots, because they are many; and in horsemen, because they are very strong; but they look not unto the Holy One of Israel, neither seek the LORD!
Jesus Christ will rise up against the worldly and all those who make light of the sound doctrine of his Word.
31:2 Yet he [Messiah] also is wise, and will bring evil, and will not call back his words: but will arise against the house of the evildoers, and against the help of them that work iniquity.
Those who rely on the Egyptians shall fall with the Egyptians; both the physical Egyptians and the spiritual Egypt of worldliness and compromise with the law of God.
31:3 Now the Egyptians are men, and not God; and their horses flesh, and not spirit. When the LORD shall stretch out his hand, both he that helpeth shall fall, and he that is holpen shall fall down, and they all shall fail together.
When Christ comes, he shall come like a young lion roaring over his prey; therefore trust in the might of the Eternal and not in the spiritual emptiness of worldliness and Egypt, the type of bondage to sin and ultimate death.
31:4 For thus hath the LORD spoken unto me, Like as the lion and the young lion roaring on his prey, when a multitude of shepherds is called forth against him, he will not be afraid of their voice, nor abase himself for the noise of them: so shall the LORD of hosts come down to fight for mount Zion, and for the hill thereof.
Christ shall come in the air to set foot on the Mount of Olives to destroy the wicked gathered to fight against him.
31:5 As birds flying, so will the LORD of hosts defend Jerusalem; defending also he will deliver it; and passing over he will preserve it.
Repent and turn to your God Oh Israel [both spiritual and physical]!
31:6 Turn ye unto him from whom the children of Israel have deeply revolted.
When Christ comes all idols shall; be destroyed and with them all the wickedness and commandment breaking that they bring.
31:7 For in that day every man shall cast away his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which your own hands have made unto you for a sin.
In that day the German [and the nations of the New Europe] shall fear Christ and flee away from him. Then they shall repent and follow Christ; and when they realize that they have been deceived and duped by the Vatican, they shall turn against and shall destroy the Roman Catholic Church totally. Thus helping to fulfill the destruction of all idols, and wickedness, and false teachings, and sin; out of Europe.
Rev 17:15 And the ten horns [nations] which thou sawest upon the beast [the New Europe], these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.
17 For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.
31:8 Then shall the Assyrian fall with the sword, not of a mighty man; and the sword, not of a mean man, shall devour him: but he shall flee from the sword, and his young men shall be discomfited. 31:9 And he shall pass over to his strong hold for fear, and his princes shall be afraid of the ensign, saith the LORD, whose fire is in Zion, and his furnace in Jerusalem.
