Preparing the Way of the Lord

Jeremiah 48 – 49

Jeremiah 48

After Moab and Ammon [modern Jordan] hired Ishmael to murder Gedaliah  the governor of Judah, and then Johanon rebelled against Babylon and Judah fled to Egypt; Nebuchadnezzar invaded Egypt, and on his way to Egypt overran Moab and Ammon with an army of Babylonians and Persians because of their rebellion and treachery.

In this end time, Jordan [Moab and Ammon]  will ally themselves with the king of Babylon [the New Europe] against Egypt and Judah (Psalm 83); but they will not prosper in the long term, for in the third year the New Europe shall go up to attack the nations of Asia and they will respond in fury to strike Europe and then come down into the Middle East to attack the king of Babylon and the final false prophet at Jerusalem where they have fled.  

Turkey, Jordan, Syria, the Philistines and Palestinians, Lebanon and the Arab people allied with the coming European Babylon the Great; shall not escape the armies of Asia, but will themselves be corrected.

Jeremiah 48:1 Against Moab thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Woe unto Nebo! for it is spoiled: Kiriathaim is confounded and taken: Misgab is confounded and dismayed. 48:2 There shall be no more praise of Moab: in Heshbon they have devised evil against it; come, and let us cut it off from being a nation. Also thou shalt be cut down, O Madmen; the sword shall pursue thee. 48:3 A voice of crying shall be from Horonaim, spoiling and great destruction.

God corrected Moab and Ammon by the sword of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon and God is against modern Jordan, although she prospers for over two years because she allies herself to the Babylon the Great of the New Europe.

48:4 Moab is destroyed; her little ones have caused a cry to be heard. 48:5 For in the going up of Luhith continual weeping shall go up; for in the going down of Horonaim the enemies have heard a cry of destruction. 48:6 Flee, save your lives, and be like the heath in the wilderness.

In Jeremiah’s time Moab and Ammon rebelled against Nebuchadnezzar even hiring Ishmael to bring Judah into the rebellion by murdering governor Gedaliah

Today Jordan will not believe the warnings of God and they will not do as God has said, rather due to their outrage at the Settler Movement Extremists sabotaging the coming peace deal, they will do what they think is right and align themselves with what they think is the overwhelming world power of the New Europe. 

48:7 For because thou hast trusted in thy works and in thy treasures, thou shalt also be taken: and Chemosh shall go forth into captivity with his priests and his princes together. 48:8 And the spoiler shall come upon every city, and no city shall escape: the valley also shall perish, and the plain shall be destroyed, as the LORD hath spoken.  48:9 Give wings unto Moab, that it may flee and get away: for the cities thereof shall be desolate, without any to dwell therein.

Cursed is the one who is deceitful in the work of God, and who is not wholeheartedly living by and keeping every Word of God.  God says that he who holds back from doing God’s will is under a curse.

48:10 Cursed be he that doeth the work of the LORD deceitfully, and cursed be he that keepeth back his sword from [doing God’s will and correcting the wicked] blood.

The Latter Days

Moab and Ammon have stayed in the original land decided between Abraham and Lot from the beginning to this day.  These two peoples have not been taken off their land nor moved about.

48:11 Moab hath been at ease from his youth, and he hath settled on his lees, and hath not been emptied from vessel to vessel, neither hath he gone into captivity: therefore his taste [attitude, proclivities, nature] remained in him, and his scent is not changed [he has not changed his ways].

The armies of Asia will come against Moab and Ammon in the third year of the New Federal Europe, they will break the strength of Ammon and Moab who will flee from the invaders.

48:12 Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will send unto him wanderers [invaders], that shall cause him to wander [to be scattered], and shall empty his vessels, and break their bottles [destroy much people].

When Nebuchadnezzar the sword of God came through the land, Chemosh could not save them, just as the golden calf that Jeroboam made could not save Samaria from the Assyrians

When Judah and Israel are corrected in the latter day tribulation, they will finally repent and turn from their idols of the false traditions of men; which are symbolized by the idolatry of Jeroboam’s golden calf at Bethel.  And when Jordan is corrected by the Asian armies they too will repent of not living by every Word of God.  

48:13 And Moab shall be ashamed of Chemosh, as the house of Israel was ashamed of Bethel their confidence.

The Eternal pronounced a judgment of correction against Moab and Ammon and sent that correction by the sword of Babylon and Nebuchadnezzar.  

A judgment of correction for today’s Moab and Ammon [modern Jordan] is also determined for their coming brutality against Judah.  In the third year the armies of Asia will flood over their land. 

48:14 How say ye, We are mighty and strong men for the war? 48:15 Moab is spoiled, and gone up out of her cities, and his chosen young men are gone down to the slaughter, saith the King, whose name is the LORD of hosts.

Nebuchadnezzar laid Moab and Ammon waste and Jordan will be laid waste in our time by the hand of the coming Asian armies

48:16 The calamity of Moab is near to come, and his affliction hasteth fast.  48:17 All ye that are about him, bemoan him; and all ye that know his name, say, How is the strong staff broken, and the beautiful rod! 48:18 Thou daughter that dost inhabit Dibon, come down from thy glory, and sit in thirst; for the spoiler of Moab shall come upon thee, and he shall destroy thy strong holds.

Just as Nebuchadnezzar spoiled Moab and Ammon in the past, in this latter time the Asian armies will overrun Jordan as they advance to surround Jerusalem for the great battle of Jerusalem in the day of the Lord’s coming.

48:19 O inhabitant of Aroer, stand by the way, and espy; ask him that fleeth, and her that escapeth, and say, What is done? 48:20 Moab is confounded; for it is broken down: howl and cry; tell ye it in Arnon, that Moab is spoiled, 48:21 And judgment is come upon the plain country; upon Holon, and upon Jahazah, and upon Mephaath, 48:22 And upon Dibon, and upon Nebo, and upon Bethdiblathaim, 48:23 And upon Kiriathaim, and upon Bethgamul, and upon Bethmeon, 48:24 And upon Kerioth, and upon Bozrah, and upon all the cities of the land of Moab, far or near.

48:25 The horn [strength, power, defense] of Moab is cut off, and his arm is broken, saith the LORD.

Like most of today’s leaders in the spiritual Ekklesia, Moab was and still is intoxicated with pride; and like today’s spiritual Ekklesia, Moab will be humbled and his great pride crushed and he will be brought down to shame like an intoxicated person wallows in his own vomit.

48:26 Make ye him drunken: for he magnified himself against the LORD: Moab also shall wallow in his vomit, and he also shall be in derision.

This will come because Moab and Ammon [modern Jordan] were always contrary to Judah/Israel and because they will rejoice at the tribulation of Judah and Israel.

48:27 For was not Israel a derision unto thee? was he found among thieves? for since thou spakest of him, thou skippedst for joy.

The people of Ammon and Moab [Jordan] should run, flee and hide; when they see the armies of Asia coming; they should  repent and turn to the Eternal, the God of their father Lot.

48:28 O ye that dwell in Moab, leave the cities, and dwell in the rock, and be like the dove that maketh her nest in the sides of the hole’s mouth.

The great pride of Moab is like the massive pride of most of the leaders and elders in today’s spiritual Ekklesia, who will not admit that they need anything spiritually (Rev 3:16-22); thinking of themselves as being spiritually rich when they are spiritually blind, wretched and naked of godly righteousness in the eyes of God the Father and Jesus Christ, because they have no zeal to live by every Word of God.

48:29 We have heard the pride of Moab, (he is exceeding proud) his loftiness, and his arrogancy, and his pride, and the haughtiness of his heart.

God speaks of the deep anger of Moab and Ammon over Judah and rejects their denials of that anger.

The falsehoods of proud self-justification will not profit anyone nor will they save anyone; for the Word and Judgment of God will be done.

48:30 I know his wrath, saith the LORD; but it shall not be so; his lies shall not so effect it.

Mourn for Moab for they will not repent until they have suffered much.  Mourn for today’s corporate Ekklesia factions, for as groups they will not repent and turn to a zeal to learn and live by every Word of God before they are cast into great correction.

48:31 Therefore will I howl for Moab, and I will cry out for all Moab; mine heart shall mourn for the men of Kirheres. 48:32 O vine of Sibmah, I will weep for thee with the weeping of Jazer: thy plants are gone over the sea, they reach even to the sea of Jazer: the spoiler is fallen upon thy summer fruits and upon thy vintage. 48:33 And joy and gladness is taken from the plentiful field, and from the land of Moab, and I have caused wine to fail from the winepresses: none shall tread with shouting; their shouting shall be no shouting. 48:34 From the cry of Heshbon even unto Elealeh, and even unto Jahaz, have they uttered their voice, from Zoar even unto Horonaim, as an heifer of three years old: for the waters also of Nimrim shall be desolate.

All those who do not keep the whole Word of God in the spiritual Ekklesia and in the nations, must either sincerely repent or they will suffer strong correction.  All of today’s spiritual Ekklesia who follow idols of men and corporate organizations; who love their false traditions more than they love the whole Word of God to learn and to keep it; shall fall into great correction.

48:35 Moreover I will cause to cease in Moab, saith the LORD, him that offereth in the high places, and him that burneth incense to his gods. 48:36 Therefore mine heart shall sound for Moab [God will wail in mourning for Moab like the bagpipes] like pipes, and mine heart shall sound like pipes for the men of Kirheres: because the riches that he hath gotten are perished. 48:37 For every head shall be bald, and every beard clipped: upon all the hands shall be cuttings, and upon the loins sackcloth.

Just as Moab will lament in her time, so physical and spiritual Israel [the Laodicean Ekklesia of today] will lament in sincere repentance over their sins in their time of correction. 

48:38 There shall be lamentation generally upon all the housetops of Moab, and in the streets thereof: for I have broken Moab like a vessel wherein is no pleasure, saith the LORD.

Jesus Christ will reject today’s spiritual Ekklesia into great correction because of their zeal to idolize men and false traditions; and their lack of zeal to live by every Word of God (Rev 3:16).

48:39 They shall howl, saying, How is it broken down! how hath Moab turned the back with shame! so shall Moab be a derision and a dismaying to all them about him.

Just as Nebuchadnezzar come over Moab in his day,  the armies of Asia will pour into Moab in the third year or the beginning of the fourth year [the New Europe and allies will have 31/2 years] of the New Europe in this latter day.

48:40 For thus saith the LORD; Behold, he shall fly as an eagle, and shall spread his wings over Moab. 48:41 Kerioth is taken, and the strong holds are surprised, and the mighty men’s hearts in Moab at that day shall be as the heart of a woman in her pangs.

48:42 And Moab shall be destroyed from being a people [a nation], because he hath magnified himself against the LORD. 48:43 Fear, and the pit [the grave], and the snare, shall be upon thee, O inhabitant of Moab, saith the LORD. 48:44 He that fleeth from the fear shall fall into the pit; and he that getteth up out of the pit shall be taken in the snare: for I will bring upon it, even upon Moab, the year of their visitation, saith the LORD.

48:45 They that fled stood under the shadow of Heshbon because of the force [power of the enemy]: but a fire shall come forth out of Heshbon, and a flame from the midst of Sihon, and shall devour the corner of Moab, and the crown of the head of the tumultuous ones.

Then when Christ comes, he will destroy all those who still resist the Word of God, beginning at Jerusalem; and then Moab and all Israel will repent and serve the Eternal.

48:46 Woe be unto thee, O Moab! the people of Chemosh perisheth: for thy sons are taken captives, and thy daughters captives. 48:47 Yet will I bring again [liberate from captivity] the captivity of Moab in the latter days, saith the LORD. Thus far is the judgment of Moab.

 

Jeremiah 49

Prophecies against the nations who resisted Nebuchadnezzar

The Ammonites, brothers of Moab in modern Jordan

These nations were corrected by Nebuchadnezzar and Babylon in ancient times, and they will be corrected again in our days.

In this end time, modern Jordan will be allied with the New Europe, Babylon the Great (Psalm 83).

In the end they shall pay for their alliance with the New Europe and for rejoicing at the fall of Judah; by being overwhelmed by the advancing armies of Asia.

Jeremiah 49:1 Concerning the Ammonites, thus saith the LORD; Hath Israel no sons? hath he no heir? why then doth their king inherit Gad, and his people dwell in his cities?

Nebuchadnezzar invaded Ammon and rolled through Moab on his way to Egypt.

In the third year or early in the fourth year of the tribulation the Asian armies will overwhelm Amman as well as their brother Moab for their alliance with the European beast against Israel.  Then the Jordanians will serve the restored Israel in the millennium.

49:2 Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will cause an alarm of war to be heard in Rabbah [Amman] of the Ammonites; and it shall be a desolate heap, and her daughters [descendants] shall be burned with fire: then shall Israel be heir unto them that were his heirs, saith the LORD.

49:3 Howl, O Heshbon, for Ai is spoiled: cry, ye daughters of Rabbah [Ammon], gird you with sackcloth; lament, and run to and fro by the hedges; for their king shall go into captivity, and his priests and his princes together.

Ammon trusted in her strength and in Egypt in the time of Nebuchadnezzar; and in this latter day Ammon [Jordan] will trust in the power of the now rising New Europe – Babylon the Great, saying that no one can come up against her; but her trust will be disappointed today as it was in the past, for she trusts in men and not in God the Almighty.

49:4 Wherefore gloriest thou in the valleys, thy flowing valley, O backsliding daughter [latter day descendant]? that trusted in her treasures, saying, Who shall come unto me?

When the armies of Asia come in the third year or early in the fourth year of the New Europe, Ammon [Jordan] will be made desolate with no one to help her

49:5 Behold, I will bring a fear upon thee, saith the Lord GOD of hosts, from all those that be about thee; and ye shall be driven out every man right forth; and none shall gather up him that wandereth.

Then when Messiah comes, he will deliver the remnant of Jordan [Ammon and Moab] who will turn to God in sincere repentance.

49:6 And afterward I will bring again [restore from captivity] the captivity of the children of Ammon, saith the LORD [and Jordan will be associated with Israel].

Edom [mainly modern Turkey]

49:7 Concerning Edom, thus saith the LORD of hosts; Is wisdom no more in Teman? is counsel perished from the prudent? is their wisdom vanished? 49:8 Flee ye, turn back, dwell deep, O inhabitants of Dedan; for I will bring the calamity of Esau upon him, the time that I will visit him.

In the days of Nebuchadnezzar, Edom still dwelt south of Ammon, and Nebuchadnezzar overran that people on his way to Egypt.  

Centuries later Edom migrated to Turkmenistan and during the Muslim expansion the Othmani [Ottoman] and other Turks migrated to modern Turkey.

Turkey will ally themselves with the now rising New Europe and will become the leader of a coalition of Islamic nations [except Egypt] which will invade modern Judah (Psalm 83).

Psalm 83:5 For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee:

83:6 The tabernacles of Edom [Turkey], and the Ishmaelites [true Arabs, sons of Ishmael; sons of Abraham and Hagar]; of Moab [northern Jordan today], and the Hagarenes [Arabs who are sons of Hagar by another than Abraham, and also not the sons of Ishmael];

83:7 Geba [Lebanon], and Ammon [Jordan today], and Amalek [a tribe of the Turks]; the Philistines [Gaza] with the inhabitants of Tyre [Lebanon];

83:8 Assur [Germany, Austria, Hungary] also is joined with them: they have holpen the children of Lot [will help modern Jordan; Ammon and Moab].

Selah. 

The judgment against Turkey is harsh, yet all those who sincerely repent and put their trust in the Eternal will be saved.

Jeremiah 49:9 If grapegatherers come to thee, would they not leave some gleaning grapes? if thieves by night, they will destroy till they have enough. 49:10 But I have made Esau bare, I have uncovered his secret places, and he shall not be able to hide himself: his seed is spoiled, and his brethren, and his neighbours, and he is not.

The poor and humble will be delivered for their humility and sincere contrite repentance.

49:11 Leave thy fatherless children, I will preserve them alive; and let thy widows trust in me.

Edom [modern Turkey], like Ammon, Moab [Jordan], Lebanon, Syria and Gaza [Philistine] were all overwhelmed by Nebuchadnezzar anciently.

In this latter day they shall confederate together and shall ally themselves with the New Europe thinking that there is safety in that alliance; but the nations of Asia will overwhelm them after Europe attacks Asia in their third or early in the fourth year.

49:12 For thus saith the LORD; Behold, they whose judgment was not to drink of the cup have assuredly drunken; and art thou he that shall altogether go unpunished? thou shalt not go unpunished, but thou shalt surely drink of it.  49:13 For I have sworn by myself, saith the LORD, that Bozrah shall become a desolation, a reproach, a waste, and a curse; and all the cities thereof shall be perpetual wastes.

In the third year of the New Europe, Babylon the Great will hear rumors [unsettling news] and shall strike out at Asia (Dan 11:44), only to be overwhelmed together along with her allies – Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan and the Arab nations (Psalm 83) – by the counter strike. 

The European political and religious leaders will move from Europe to Jerusalem to make their stand, and the armies of Asia will pass through the Middle East to confront them at Jerusalem.

49:14 I have heard a rumour from the LORD, and an ambassador is sent unto the heathen, saying, Gather ye together, and come against her, and rise up to the battle.

Turkey will be crushed and made small by the vast armies of Asia.

49:15 For, lo, I will make thee small among the heathen, and despised among men.

The strength of Turkey who dwells in the mountains, has filled him with pride, and he thinks himself invincible, yet he shall come to his end.

49:16 Thy terribleness hath deceived thee, and the pride of thine heart, O thou that dwellest in the clefts of the rock, that holdest the height of the hill: though thou shouldest make thy nest as high as the eagle, I will bring thee down from thence, saith the LORD. 49:17 Also Edom shall be a desolation: every one that goeth by it shall be astonished, and shall hiss at all the plagues thereof. 49:18 As in the overthrow of Sodom and Gomorrah and the neighbour cities thereof, saith the LORD, no man shall abide there, neither shall a son of man dwell in it.

In the next few years Turkey will come up against Judah like a lion (Psalm 83), but God will drive him away by the nations of Asia; then Christ will come to deliver humanity and shall be King of kings – over all the earth.

49:19 Behold, he [Turkey] shall come up like a lion from the swelling of Jordan against the habitation of the strong [Judea]: but I will suddenly make him run away from her [Judah and Israel]: and who is a chosen man, that I may appoint over her? for who is like me? and who will appoint me the time? and who is that shepherd that will stand before me?

49:20 Therefore hear the counsel of the LORD, that he hath taken against Edom; and his purposes, that he hath purposed against the inhabitants of Teman: Surely the least of the flock [of Israel] shall draw them out: surely he shall make their habitations desolate with them.

49:21 The earth is moved at the noise of their fall, at the cry the noise thereof was heard in the Red sea. 49:22 Behold, he shall come up and fly as the eagle, and spread his wings over Bozrah: and at that day shall the heart of the mighty men of Edom be as the heart of a woman in her pangs.

 

Syria

A prophecy of Damascus and Syria for the coming of Nebuchadnezzar; and the latter day’s final destruction of Syria by the armies of Asia 

This prophecy portion for the latter days is already beginning as Syria is being greatly weakened, yet Damascus will make an alliance with the king of the North – the rising New Europe – and will be among those who share in the fall of the Jewish state; then in the third year Europe will attack Asia and the armies of Asia will counterattack over-running Syria and the Middle East.

Remember that the capital city is representative of the whole nation; to speak against Jerusalem is to speak against Judea and to prophecy against Damascus is to prophesy against Syria.

49:23 Concerning Damascus. Hamath is confounded, and Arpad: for they have heard evil tidings: they are fainthearted; there is sorrow on the sea; it cannot be quiet. 49:24 Damascus is waxed feeble, and turneth herself to flee, and fear hath seized on her: anguish and sorrows have taken her, as a woman in travail. 49:25 How is the city of praise not left, the city of my joy! 49:26 Therefore her young men shall fall in her streets, and all the men of war shall be cut off in that day, saith the LORD of hosts. 49:27 And I will kindle a fire in the wall of Damascus, and it shall consume the palaces of Benhadad.

 

Arabia

Just as Nebuchadnezzar defeated Syria and Arabia in his day, so Syria and Arabia will be overwhelmed in this end time by the nations of Asia.

49:28 Concerning Kedar [Arabia], and concerning the kingdoms of Hazor, which Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon shall smite, thus saith the LORD; Arise ye, go up to Kedar, and spoil the men of the east. 49:29 Their tents and their flocks shall they take away: they shall take to themselves their curtains, and all their vessels, and their camels; and they shall cry unto them, Fear is on every side.

49:30 Flee, get you far off, dwell deep [hide deeply], O ye inhabitants of Hazor, saith the LORD; for Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon hath taken counsel against you, and hath conceived a purpose against you.

Just as Nebuchadnezzar is told to go up against the nations of Arabia in his day, so the end time Asian armies will overflow the Middle East, whose nations will be allied to the New Europe of Babylon the Great in this latter day (Psalm 83).  

49:31 Arise, get you up unto the wealthy nation, that dwelleth without care, saith the LORD, which have neither gates nor bars, which dwell alone. 49:32 And their camels shall be a booty, and the multitude of their cattle a spoil: and I will scatter into all winds them that are in the utmost corners; and I will bring their calamity from all sides thereof, saith the LORD.

49:33 And Hazor shall be a dwelling for dragons [jackals, wild creatures], and a desolation for ever: there shall no man abide there, nor any son of man dwell in it.

 

A dual prophecy concerning the Slavic people, now living in east central Europe [Poland, Slovakia].  

Nebuchadnezzar broke Elam in 605 B.C. at the battle of Carchemish, when they lived in Mesopotamia;

After that they migrated into Eastern Europe [Poland and Slovakia]  and in this latter day they shall fall to the armies of Asia in the third or early in the fourth year of the New Europe [because the will be a part of or allied with the New Europe].  

This prophecy was made about 597 B.C. and Elam had already been defeated and taken over by Nebuchadnezzar in 605 B.C. at the Battle of Carchemish; therefore this prophecy is about the latter days and is not about Nebuchadnezzar.

49:34 The word of the LORD that came to Jeremiah the prophet against Elam in the beginning of the reign of Zedekiah king of Judah [c 597 B.C.], saying, 49:35 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Behold, I will break the bow of Elam, the chief of their might.

Elam [the Slavs and Poles] were scattered to all nations after Nebuchadnezzar brought them down, with a core group migrating to Eastern Europe.  In this end time the Asian armies will overwhelm them as they move into Europe in response to the New Europe’s attack on them in the third year. 

49:36 And upon Elam will I bring the four winds from the four quarters of heaven, and will scatter them toward all those winds; and there shall be no nation whither the outcasts of Elam shall not come. 49:37 For I will cause Elam to be dismayed before their enemies, and before them that seek their life: and I will bring evil upon them, even my fierce anger, saith the LORD; and I will send the sword after them, till I have consumed them:

When Christ comes he will deliver Elam out of the hand of the invaders, and set one of his thrones over Elam to rule them through the resurrected Chosen Elect.

49:38 And I will set my throne in Elam, and will destroy from thence the king and the princes, saith the LORD.  49:39 But it shall come to pass in the latter days, that I will bring again the captivity of Elam, saith the LORD.
