God's Alarm and Leaving the Harlot Babylon (Prophecy)

Minister Ty Alexander


Updated 5/12/2023

I originally wrote this sermon about a month ago (June 2021) and did not plan it to be released for Yom Teruah, but in the days after I finished the first version of God’s Alarm, I felt the Lord wanted me to be much clearer about the Harlot Babylon.

The original alarm only alluded to the truth of what the Harlot is and directed people to look at previous work I did, because I’ve also been guided in the past that revealing some truths can be too much for people, even experienced ministers. Of these hard truths or “strong meat,” Yeshua (Jesus) even told His disciples, I have much more things to say to you, but you cannot bear them at the present time (John 16:12).

However, soon after I wrote the alarm last month, the Lord reminded me that this is very serious, and my original call to attention was insufficient. God moved me to rework the alarm after I ran across what Apostle Paul said about our callings and use of spiritual gifts and revelation in 1 Corinthians 14, "How will I benefit you unless I speak to you either by way of revelation, or of knowledge, or of prophecy, or of teaching… if the trumpet produces an indistinct sound, who will prepare himself for battle?" (1 Corinthians 14:6-8).

My alarm last month made a vague, indistinct sound, so now the Lord worked me to time His updated alarm to be clear and distinct, and to be sounded on Yom Teruah or the Day of Trumpets, when there is a sounding of shofar trumpet made from ram horns and a call to attention. There are hard truths in this alarm, and some of you may not bear them well, so as Paul continued to speak of revelation, gifts, and knowledge in 1 Corinthians 14, I will repeat his words, so you may keep the Lord’s peace and not overreact - Brothers and sisters, do not be children in your understanding; only in committing evil be infants, but in your thinking be mature (1 Corinthians 14:20).

This alarm was already related to Yom Teruah, because last month, I felt the Lord moved me to speak about a “teruah alarm” related to the end of this age. For those who don’t know, teruah or ‘ter-ooah’ is the Hebrew word for a shout or loud noise, most typically from a shofar/trumpet sounding or vocal shout.

The word is commonly known from Yom Teruah or the Feast of Trumpets, which is the first holiday in what Jews call the High Holy Days or Days of Awe near the end of the calendar year.

The teruah in Yom Teruah, though, does not refer to an alarm call, specifically, unless context warrants it, just as teruah does not explicitly or solely refer to a trumpet or shofar blowing, unless those words specify that. Keeping context correct is a very important part of correctly handling scripture and being an approved workman for the Lord (2 Timothy 2:15), so let’s examine teruah further.

The word "teruah" can describe any kind of loud sound, alarm, cry, or signal[2.900.11], and it is used in the Bible most often with shofar or trumpet blasts and shouting, like in rejoicing over the Lord, in shofar and trumpet calls for signaling and battle, and when God gave a teruah or loud shout as He ascended to heaven in Psalm 47, God has ascended with a shout [with a teruah]; Yahovah, with the sound of a shofar (Psalm 47:5).

With this in mind, the teruah used with Yom Teruah in scripture (Leviticus 23:24; Numbers 29:1) does not specify what kind of shout or noise goes with the holiday. When I spoke of what Yom Teruah meant during the High Holidays last year, I said the teruah and shouting was a memorial and acknowledgment of Christ as King, because it was common for shofar blowing to be part of a king’s anointment and acknowledgment (1 Kings 1:39; 2 Kings 9:13, 11:12-14; 2 Chronicles 23:11-13).

However, if we look at the scripture related to the anointment of kings, the word “teruah” is not used in any of the verses. The Hebrew words used for blowing the shofars there are more generic “blow/blast/sound” (taqa, Strong's #8628 - תָּקַע) and “voice/sound” (qol, Strong's #6963 - קֹל) words. Why, would the Lord have me connect Yom Teruah to the anointment and acknowledgement of Christ then?

If we look at all the uses of “teruah” in scripture, it occurs about 36 times, depending on the Bible translation, but there are only two times “teruah” is NOT used in direct relation to a command of God, to show His glory, or with rejoicing in Him. One of those indirect uses is in Job 39:25, where God makes Job aware that his knowledge is insufficient compared to God’s.

The teruah in Job 39:25 is where God speaks of His creation in the horse, and how it does not fear to run in war, straight into the thunder of the captains and teruah or shouting of war.

The other use of teruah that is not directly related to God’s command, His glory, or rejoicing in Him is in Jeremiah 20:16, where Jeremiah laments over his troubles and wishes not to be born, saying, May the man [who rejoices in my birth] be like the cities which the Lord Yahovah overthrew without relenting, and may he hear an outcry in the morning and a teruah/shouting of war at noon.

Every other use of teruah in the Bible is related to a command of God, like to observe Yom Teruah (Leviticus 23:24; Numbers 29:1), to sound a teruah/trumpet for a Jubilee Year (Leviticus 25:9), to signal God’s camp to move with trumpet soundings (Numbers 10:5-6), to give a teruah of joy in God (Numbers 23:21; 1 Samuel 4:5-6; 2 Samuel 6:15; 1 Chronicles 15:28; 2 Chronicles 15:14; Ezra 3:11-13; Job 8:21, 33:26; Psalm 27:6, 33:3, 89:15, 150:5), to sound teruahs of judgment or battle by God's command (Numbers 31:6; Joshua 6:5, 6:20 (Jericho); 2 Chronicles 13:12; Jeremiah 4:19, 49:2; Ezekiel 21:22; Amos 1:14, 2:2; Zephaniah 1:16), and to sound a teruah relating to God's glory (Psalm 47:5).

The overwhelming use of teruah in direct relation to God and His glory are in synch with why I was guided that Yom Teruah is about affirming Christ’s anointment as King. Today, though, I’m talking about an alarm call, even though in all my years of ministry, the Lord never gave me a sense that Yom Teruah had an alarm kind of teruah associated with it. Why then is the Lord moving me to bring this up with Yom Teruah now?

In 2021, someone commented about the Yom Teruah service I did and suggested the teruah went with an alarm kind of teruah, also noting that the traditional Jewish “teruah” type of shofar blowing is a staccato blast of many short notes that is used as a call to attention and alarm, especially for battle calls. These kinds of battle calls are most commonly heard today in military bugle calls.

The main problems with this person’s comments, though, were that he assumed his guidance and knowledge about the teruah, shofar blowing, and prophecies related to Yom Teruah had no error. He assumed the Jewish traditions he based much of his thinking on was not tainted by dark forces through the millennia.

The truth is, the traditions of Judaism today, and even centuries before Christ came, are not as God gave them, and it is relatively well-known that Christ, Himself, stated Jewish teachers and synagogues by the first century were of Satan (John 8:42-44; Revelation 2:9, 3:9).

However, I did find merit to some things the commenter gave about a future Yom Teruah being linked to a “teruah” or sounding to mark the very end of this age – the final week or “seven” of Daniel’s 70 sevens from Daniel 9:24-27 when the final antichrist is in power and turns back on a covenant, halfway in the last “seven” or week of Daniel’s 70, which have been proven to be periods of seven years.

These links need further looking into, but because I found errors of scriptural interpretation in the commenter's remarks and reliance on tainted Jewish traditions, I cannot fully approve his prophetic theories. There is far too much false prophecy and false spiritual guidance in the church, and I have seen many, many ministers be overzealous with alarm from false prophecy and spiritual guidance because of religious spirits and imposters of the Lord giving false guidance.

So without further guidance from the Lord, of which I’ve asked for regarding this, I must leave the 70th Week Teruah prophecies until God shows what is good and valid prophecy (1 Thessalonians 5:21). As I said before, the Lord never gave me a sense of alarm in relation to Yom Teruah, and the leanings of the Spirit are an important part of guidance from God.

However, I must also acknowledge the ardent drive many believers feel with prophecy and spiritual guidance they get is very real, and they believe their strong feelings are of the Spirit and God’s Mind, but I must state it is very difficult in this age of spiritual imposters for anyone to discern what truly is from the Lord, even if you have God’s Spirit and spiritual gifts, so patience, careful examination, and the Lord’s help and wisdom are required for the truth to come forth.

So after I made the first post for God's Alarm, the Lord was faithful to show me through 2021 and 2022 very strong proofs that His teruah alarm call here is true and urgent. We will see how serious it is as we proceed.

The Lord moved me to write of an alarm call in 2021 because He is trying to call His people to attention about the Harlot Babylon. Since then, though, He has not guided me more on the alarm being related to a future Yom Teruah holiday, in which the commenter who brought it up to me noted that coming to repentance was important. When I spoke of Yom Teruah, I noted it is tradition and proper for us to reflect on past mistakes in preparation for the next High Holiday, Yom Kippur or Day of Atonement, which focuses a lot on recalling sin and repentance.

I was going to dismiss the commenter’s teruah prophecies, but just a couple days afterwards, I was reminded about guidance I got with coral reefs (photos below) and that much of my ministry had to do with getting God’s people to pay attention to these times of a corrupted church and the effects of sin.

Some years ago, I saw a documentary on how much of the world’s coral reefs are bleaching or dying off and turning white from their skeletons being left behind (images below), because of the global warming of the earth’s oceans. Some of the corals turned a bright pink or violet fluorescent color before they died, which I felt was a spiritual metaphor and sign from the Lord.

This bright fluorescence (photos above) is a call to attention in itself, like a loud teruah blast is a call to attention in the Bible. Biologists believe the corals turn bright when they produce a sunscreen to try and protect themselves from the intense heat of the sun, and the spiritual metaphor with this is that, now, in the end of this age, when God’s tribulations and judgments become more and more severe, just like the earth’s warming has created more and more severe weather, the environment we live in will become too heated for people to survive in, just as most corals that bleach and fluoresce won’t survive.

This is obviously a warning and link to the worsening of the world’s “climate” at the end of the age when the judgments of God come to destroy much of mankind and the earth, even the saints and other believers of God (Daniel 7:21-22; Revelation 13:7), up until the Lord must return to end the last antichrist’s reign of power (Daniel 7:21-22; Revelation 19:11-21).

This is a scary time, as the world has shown more and more of the signs of the end of this age – wonders in the sky and on the earth (images below), some of which I have spoken of before (see Predestined), and blood, fire, and columns of smoke (Joel 2:30-31; Acts 2:18).

In relation to the fire and smoke, an international study recently reported a severe state for the world's climate, saying, "It is unequivocal that human influence has warmed the atmosphere, ocean and land"[6.21.1]. They cited centuries worth of climate data showing evidence that man's work has caused more frequent and severe heatwaves, droughts, storms, and flooding.

In North America, we've seen the largest spread of heatwaves and wildfires in history in the summer of 2021, and locally in the Midwest, I got a tangible sense of this when huge wildfires in Canada, many hundreds of miles away, darkened Minnesota skies with smoke for days. I have lived in Minnesota for almost 50 years and have never seen events like this. And as time went on through 2023, I noted severe weather during both the winter and warm months kept producing record after record of destructive storms, floods, and drought.

So even the most skeptical must look again, because the signs God stated for the end of the age are being fulfilled in our days. Even Christ's statement of "perplexity at the roaring of the sea and the waves" (Luke 21:25) has happened from more and more severe hurricanes, typhoons, and tsunamis from earthquakes. Even major cities, like New York and Philadelphia, were inundated with waves and major flooding that killed dozens of people in the heavy rains from what was Hurricane Ida in 2021.

Yeshua's statement that the gospel must be preached to all the nations before the end (Matthew 24:14; Mark 13:10) is also fulfilled, as I've noted in the past (see Ministry Warnings), the world knows who Christ is today, certainly every major nation and modern community. Jeremiah's prophesy is fulfilled, stating, "They will not teach again, each man his neighbor and each man his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for they will all know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them" (Jeremiah 31:34), because all the world has heard of Yeshua Mashiach (Jesus Christ).

The world has been saturated with evangelism for centuries, and now, often the church has been overzealous, making nonbelievers everywhere skittish and anxious to avoid its recruitment. A sign this is true came to my attention by the Lord's revelation, because I had often wondered why non-native Asian carp are so easily spooked here in the Mississippi River, jumping out of the waters in large numbers, when they do not do that in their native habitat.

This strange, new behavior was even reported in Israel a couple years ago in the Sea of Galilee[4.1.7]. A fisherman of the waters for 30 years said he had never seen such behavior. Scientists know the behavior is an escape mechanism, which was made more apparent by the fish in Galilee. Their response was triggered by fishermen throwing nets in the water, which set off an "unusually aggressive escape response" to get out of the nets.

The Lord's revelation told me this behavior is a direct link to the scripture where Christ recruits the first disciples fishing in the Sea of Galilee to become fishers of people (Matthew 4:18-22, Mark 1:16-20, Luke 5:1-11), and after His resurrection, He helped them bring in a large haul of 153 fish, also in the Sea of Galilee (John 21:1-11), which symbolized the beginning of the age of evangelism.

The metaphor for catches of fish representing people being evangelized is further reinforced in the Parable of the Net, where Christ said, "the kingdom of heaven is like a dragnet that was cast into the sea and gathered fish of every kind; and when it was filled, they pulled it up on the beach; and they sat down and gathered the good fish into containers, but the bad they threw away" (Matthew 13:47-50).

So the recent, new behavior of fish trying desperately to escape catch is God's sign that people, especially in the United States and the Holy Land, are now very wary of the church's evangelism and the end of the age has come, when "people faint from fear and the expectation of the things that are coming upon the world, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. And then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. But when these things begin to take place, straighten up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near" (Luke 21:26-28).

Do not cripple yourselves with anxiety, because there are many years still and much needs to take place before the very end. The heating of God’s judgments has been happening for decades, at least, and likely for many centuries, since the Apostle Peter confirmed that the Pentecost of Acts 2, the first Pentecost for the church, fulfilled Joel’s prophecy of the Last Days:

But Peter, taking his stand with the other eleven [disciples of Christ], raised his voice and declared to them, ‘Men of Judea and all you who live in Jerusalem, know this, and pay attention to my words. For these people, [who are prophesying and speaking in all languages,] are not drunk, as you assumed, since it is only the third hour of the day [about 9 a.m.], but [these things are] what has been spoken through the prophet Joel, ‘And it shall be in the last days,’ God says, ‘That I will pour out My Spirit on all mankind; and your sons and your daughters will prophesy… and I will display wonders in the sky above and signs on the earth below, blood, fire, and vapor of smoke. (Acts 2:14-19)

This means we have been in the Last Days since the Pentecost of Acts 2 about two thousand years ago. And know also, that the Beast of the Last Days consists of many kings and kingdoms that have come, gone, and are yet to be (Daniel 7:24; Revelation 17:8-13), so God’s people have been going through tribulations of the Beast for millennia, including during the last age before Christ came.

However, we are now very near to the end of this age. The Lord has given me much guidance to affirm that (see Predestined for more), and has even shown COVID-19 to fulfill prophecies of tribulation in Isaiah 24-26 (see COVID-19).

A very important part of the Lord’s calling me to ministry was to bring attention to the working of sin that the church and God’s people continue in, how to correct them, and come to the place of protection prophesied in Revelation 12 for the Bride of Christ, where she will get the wings of a great eagle and fly to a place where she will be safe from Satan, for a time, times, and half a time – a period going with Daniel’s 70th seven and the end of this age.

If you’ve paid any attention to world events, you will have noticed much more heated tribulation in the world, especially in the last few years with more frequent severe weather events, the COVID-19 pandemic, civil unrest and violent crime that brought the richest and most secure nations to the same level of turmoil seen in countries, like the Sudan, Uganda, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Ukraine, and the Middle East, etc. that have seen much upheaval from radical, militant groups and disease in the last decades.

This spread of God’s judgments upon the nations is no accident, just as global warming is no accident of nature. Like the world’s unchecked and unwise use and destruction of natural resources are pushing the earth’s climate to harsh extremes, the world’s rampant sin culminates in God’s anger and judgment.

But these tribulations are also calls to recognize our wrongs and repent or turn away from bad ways onto true paths of righteousness. That is the call to attention or teruah that I’ve focused much ministry time on, and so I must reiterate the call now, so that the corals of the kingdom may be saved and come to be part of the Bride with eagle wings, who survives safely at the end of the age as noted in Revelation 12:14.

Much of the church may scoff at that, thinking they will be saved simply because they believe in Christ and the Rapture will save them. The commenter who brought up the Yom Teruah prophecies also expressed concern for the church’s lack of interest in the relatively near future Great Tribulation, and suggested the church was too afraid to confront the truth.

However, I don’t see so much fear to confront the truth in the church, but rather abundant zeal for it. The problem is God’s people are blinded and won't accept the truth, because of lies and false teaching they won’t let go of. They believe God will protect the church because we love the Lord and belong to Him. Is that enough to spare the church when the final hour of testing comes upon the whole earth?

Simply loving the Lord was not what God told the Church of Philadelphia would keep them through the hour of man’s testing (Revelation 3:8-13), and I’ve been led to see the Rapture will not save the church from the Great Tribulation (see Myth 4a, Light Within). Why would the Bride need the wings of an eagle in Revelation 12 to bring her to safety for a time, times, and half a time if she will be safely Raptured? (Revelation 12:14) Our transformation in the Rapture is permanent, for eternity, not for a time, times, and half a time.

The reality is that God’s people will be on earth through the Great Tribulation, but sufficient righteousness is lacking in her, and the kingdom is overrun with the tares or weeds and lies and schemes of the devil. I lament this as the Lord lamented over the lost purity of His consecrated ones in Lamentations 4, where the corals of the kingdom’s glory were ruddy in radiance, brighter than milk, purer than snow, and more lustrous than sapphire (Lamentations 4:7). The church is suffering and dying today in God’s judgments along with nonbelievers, like coral reefs are bleaching all over the world.

How much of God’s people have died of COVID-19? How many are killed and tortured by judgment, war, and militants? The church cannot say they are exempt from judgment when believers around the world have been getting kidnapped, raped, and tortured; held captive for months and even years. If you know nothing of these events, then you are disconnected with the truth and have shut yourself into a world of fantasy. I pray you come to attention and come to accept the truth.

The church cannot say her suffering is only because of righteousness in Christ or martyrdom. Not when believers suffer horrifically for years, and you know the Lord keeps safe the righteous (1 Samuel 2:9; Psalm 34:15-16, 97:10), and those who suffer despite being righteous only suffer a short time or are comfortable in their prisons, like Joseph was when he was kidnapped and imprisoned in Egypt (Genesis 37:18-41:45, 39:20-23), and the apostles where only imprisoned for brief periods in Acts (Acts 4:1-23, 5:17-21, 12:3-19, 16:23-34; also Revelation 2:10).

Those who believe in the Lord are supposed to be able to survive the bites of vipers and the effects of poison without harm (Mark 16:17-18), like Apostle Paul did when he was bitten by a viper in Malta (Acts 28:1-6). Should not the righteous servant of God also then be able to survive COVID-19 and other tribulations without serious harm today? Yet we see the church and other believers dying and suffering severely along with the rest of the world. Ask yourselves why that is, and what righteousness is lacking in God’s people.

The Lord has led me to understand how to truly belong to Him and pursue righteousness, so that we may fly to safety with the wings of an eagle. There are many sins the church needs to address, but some of the most important matters of righteousness were given to the Church of Philadelphia when Christ spoke in Revelation 3.

He speaks of knowing their deeds and the door, which no one can shut, and following His word, so that they would not deny His name (Revelation 3:8). These are explicit references to how the New Covenant works to save us and keep us saved, making us truly belong to God through Christ (see The True Gospel and Imposters for more).

Without truly belonging to Christ, we are not really saved or in God’s kingdom, even if you have faith in Yeshua (Jesus). This means God is more likely to treat you the same as a nonbeliever and not give you blessings that come with the kingdom of God if you are not truly saved. Apostle Paul said, if you have not the Spirit of God, then you are none of His (Romans 8:9); flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, therefore the perishable will not become imperishable, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet when the dead are raised and we are changed from our mortal bodies into the immortal (1 Corinthians 15:50-53).

As Paul said in 1 Corinthians 15:51, this is a mystery. It is linked to the mystery of the church and Christ being one in flesh in Ephesians 5:31-32, which I revealed the meaning of in previous discussions of the New Covenant (see The True Gospel and Imposters).

Here, I will cover the basics and say the great majority of the church’s teaching of salvation is incomplete and often in error, which can result in believers not being truly saved in Christ, and therefore not belonging to God when it can matter for our earthly salvation in this life, such as saving us through the tribulations of the age, as is noted in Revelation 3 to the Church of Philadelphia.

But belonging to Christ is only one part of the picture. Other sin and righteousness, besides salvation in Christ, are the other parts, and very important, as the Lord spoke six times of knowing the deeds of the seven churches in Revelation (Revelation 2:2, 2:19, 2:23, 3:1, 3:8, 3:15). The kinds of sin you continue in and your pursuit of what is right play major roles in your temporal salvation of this life. How we work out this salvation is important, and it is to be with fear and trembling as Paul put it in Philippians 2:12, so we can come out of curses and affliction from sin, and be protected from serious tribulation events.

There are many issues of sin that afflict the church. They are too numerous to speak of here, but I will discuss some very important ones, as the Lord has compelled me to note this call to attention and warning for your benefit – so that you can be certain you are saved in Christ and taking sufficient care of sin and righteousness.

Christ said Himself of this, "Therefore be on the alert, for you do not know which day your Lord is coming. But be sure of this, that if the head of the house had known at what time of the night the thief was coming, he would have been on the alert and would not have allowed his house to be broken into. For this reason you must be ready as well; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour when you do not think He will. Who then is the faithful and sensible slave whom his master put in charge of his household, to give them their food at the proper time? Blessed is that slave whom his master finds so doing when he comes. Truly I say to you that he will put him in charge of all his possessions" (Matthew 24:42-47); "Be on your guard, so that your hearts will not be weighed down with excesses, recklessness, and drunkenness and the worries of life, and that this day will not come on you suddenly, like a trap; for it will come upon all those who live on the face of all the earth. But stay alert at all times, praying that you will have strength to escape all these things that are going to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man" (Luke 21:34-36).

The Lord is saying, do not let sin allow your house to be broken into and be caught unprepared, but instead feed your house with the solid food that will sustain its well-being, right up into the Lord's return - "For everyone who partakes only of milk is unacquainted with the word of righteousness, for he is an infant. But solid food is for the mature, who because of practice have their senses trained to distinguish between good and evil" (Hebrews 5:13-14).

And so, to make this teruah call of alarm firm and distinct, "for if the trumpet produces an indistinct sound, who will prepare himself for battle?" (1 Corinthians 14:8), I must give those who are taking heed solid food that is for the mature, so that you may distinguish between good and evil.

What I say may offend many, but your acceptance of the truth and acting with it for the good, will become increasingly important as God's judgments upon the earth continue to become worse, and the time of the final antichrist arrives. The Lord's People will need greater discernment that is unattainable from a diet of mostly spiritual milk, as we have been deceived for centuries already. And still, within the final hour, the Lord said, even the elect will be deceived (Matthew 24:24).

Praise the Lord He has shown me the many deceptions God’s people have succumbed to for so long. My ministry’s path was always towards greater discernment for the benefit of us all, so it is imperative you heed the call of Christ, first spoken through John the Apostle, "Come out of her, [the Harlot Babylon], My people, so that you will not share in her sins" (Revelation 18:4). She will be destroyed in the final hour, and with great violence, "for her sins have piled up as high as heaven, and God has remembered her offenses" (Revelation 18:5, 18:21).

But how can we leave the Harlot when her identity has been a mystery ever since John recorded God's command to leave two thousand years ag? (Revelation 17:5-18) The Lord left this mystery sealed until our time, because the truth of the Harlot is one that is very hard to accept. Its realization is so difficult and damaging that the Lord deemed it necessary to leave it until the end of the age, because it goes with the Parable of the Tares (or Weeds) and Wheat in God’s kingdom, where Christ said the weeds in the kingdom, those planted by the devil, must not be uprooted until the end of the age, otherwise the wheat of God’s planting might also be uprooted (Matthew 13:24-30, 13:36-43).

Now, we are at the end, and God’s mysteries are coming to completion and are to be revealed, for nothing is hidden, except to be revealed; nor has anything been secret, but that it would come to light (Mark 4:22; Matthew 10:26; Luke 12:2). The Lord led me to understand why He let the weeds in the kingdom stay with God’s wheat until now. It is because revealing the true nature of the devil’s work and influence in the church, and all believing communities as a whole, can lead believers to turn back on belief and lose faith in Christ and God.

That is the uprooting of the wheat that might happen with uprooting the weeds spoken of in the parable (Matthew 13:29). I realized this after I had to tell a Christian brother he was following false guidance from imposters of the Lord. When he accepted evidence of the truth, he didn’t know what to believe anymore and even considered turning away from faith in Christ. It wasn’t just because of what the Harlot is, but because the weeds in the kingdom are linked to the false teaching and spiritual guidance of imposters of God and the saints – spirits claiming to be God, Christ, His Spirit, or His angels and saints, but are not.

It is a terrible thing to find out who you've been talking to in prayer and giving your complete trust to for spiritual guidance was not God or the real thing, but actually an imposter. Such a violation of trust can surely make us lose faith, because you lose trust in everything else you believe in.

Distrust and confusion may come in this, but above all, keep your faith in Christ. There is so much physical evidence, like archeological discoveries, that back up Christ's first coming, as well as other contents of the Bible (Lee Strobel's book, A Case For Christ, is a good study for Biblical validation), and I can attest to the truth of spiritual things taught in the Bible with my own experiences as a first-hand witness to the reality of what is stated in the Bible, so I have complete faith in scripture’s authenticity as a historical record and testimony.

The Bible is also a testimony of the bad side of spiritual things – demons, dark powers, and spiritual imposters - but the Lord warned us about the fakes in the New Testament, as Yeshua said of false christs, If anyone says to you, ‘Behold, here is the Christ,’ or ‘He is over here,’ do not believe him… Behold, I have told you in advance… if they say to you, ‘Behold, He is in the wilderness,’ do not go out; or, ‘Behold, He is in the inner rooms,’ do not believe them (Matthew 24:23-25).

It is commonly thought that Christ was speaking of people claiming to be the Messiah in those verses, but it also includes imposter spirits that give people false spiritual guidance, signs, and miracles, which I have seen many, many people in the church come to be blinded by.

Demons can fake nearly any spiritual gift or miracle, as that is the working of Satan, and the enemy has and will continue to deceive the elect (Matthew 24:24; Mark 13:22; 2 Thessalonians 2:9), even through the final antichrist and his false prophet (Revelation 19:20). I’ve seen the church saturated with false teaching and guidance from these imposters. That should not come as a surprise if you realize that after two thousand years of leaving weeds to grow, they would overtake the wheat in the field of God’s kingdom.

Even more distressing is the blind faith believers give to these imposters - the Baals of this age - and how firmly they hold onto the false teachings and guidance they get, thinking they are truly speaking with God, His angels, or saints, especially when their guidance is backed up by miracles. Some ministries were even deceived to believe the Lord already returned, and we are in the Millennial Reign, but despite being given scripture and plain logic to contradict false guidance, they simply reject the truth and continue to accept their imposters and false guidance.

They have been brainwashed to believe in lies, especially because miracles come to affirm the lies. That is how the final antichrist will work as well - with demons coming out of the mouths of the dragon, the beast, and false prophet that look like frogs and perform signs to deceive the world (Revelation 16:13).

It was many years ago that the Lord led me to understand the frog-like demons are spirits that use truth, but skew and misconstrue it, so that lies mixed with truth would be accepted. And since then, it has been disturbing to see that the imposter demons afflicting the church have been working in the same way – giving miracles to back up lies, false guidance, and skewed truth - and more recently this has taken a very public and dangerous turn when I saw that guidance and brainwashing found in the “Q” phenomenon and its sometimes-violent followers are exactly the same as what I saw coming from imposters of the Lord.

This Q phenomenon has many believers deceived in twisted truth and plain lies that generates the same kind of misguided, religious zeal that has blinded Islamist extremists and other radicals. But what does this have to do with leaving the Harlot Babylon and God’s alarm?

In Revelation 17, the Harlot is described as, A woman sitting on a scarlet beast, full of blasphemous names, having seven heads and ten horns. The woman was clothed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold, precious stones, and pearls, holding in her hand a gold cup full of abominations and of the unclean things of her sexual immorality (Revelation 17:3-4).

God says, Leave her, so you will not share in her sins and receive any of her plagues (Revelation 18:4). It may be more apparent what the Harlot is now that I’ve brought up the weeds and imposters in the kingdom. The Harlot is not an earthly nation, as many in the church think. God said in Revelation 17, she is the great city, which reigns over the kings of the earth (Revelation 17:18), and Revelation 18 continues to refer to her as a great city. But what city could she be?

Looking to geographic maps will not give the answer, because the Harlot Babylon is a metaphorical spiritual city, just as New Jerusalem is the metaphorical spiritual city of God’s kingdom of heaven (Revelation 3:12, 21:2). The Harlot is the opposite of New Jerusalem; you could say its anti type – one defined by sin and wickedness, rather than righteousness.

In Zechariah 5, the Harlot is called Wickedness and envisioned in a basket, and transported to the land of Shinar, an older name for Babylon (Zechariah 5:6-11; [2.820.7.0.1]). This is a picture of the People’s sin being brought to Babylon where she will be set on her own pedestal (Zechariah 5:11).

This shows that the Harlot Babylon is not a new entity for the end of our age, but has been a part of God’s people throughout history. Revelation 17 reinforces that, as it says the Harlot is the Mother of prostitutes and of the abominations of the earth (Revelation 17:5), so many sins have come out of her since the creation of mankind.

The Harlot also sits on the beast who was, and is not, and is about to come, which is composed of seven kings, of which five had fallen and one was living by the time Revelation was written, but one future king, the final antichrist with the false prophet, is still to come (Revelation 17:8-11; Daniel 7:23-27).

All of this means the Harlot Babylon or anti-new-Jerusalem includes the Jews and church, as well as other religions that recognize God, such as Islam, but follow false teachings and live in sin. The church’s involvement becomes apparent when you see many aspects of the Harlot given in Revelation have been fulfilled throughout the church’s history, especially in the Catholic and later Protestant and Reformation Churches. They have fulfilled the Harlot reigning over kings of the earth as Revelation says (Revelation 17:18).

This is because the church has had great power over many kingdoms throughout Europe, the Mediterranean, and Russia, and has even appointed their kings and forced their compliance to her will.

The Harlot is also part of the fourth beast in Daniel 7 (Daniel 7:7-8, 7:19-27), which is well known to represent Rome and the nations and powers that rose from ancient Rome. This includes the Roman Catholic Church that came after the Emperor Constantine embraced Christianity in the 4th Century AD. The church became a dominant force in sculpting society after this time, and her priests even had exalted rank equal to that of nobility.

This is the pedestal the Harlot is set on in Zechariah 5:11, and Revelation 18 states how she believes she is married to the Lord and has eternal security, for she says in her heart, ‘I sit as a queen and I am not a widow, and will never see mourning’ (Revelation 18:7). The church’s dominance in Medieval European society was evident, and she controlled much of the commerce at the time, making her and the merchants she worked with extremely wealthy, which fulfills more scripture about the Harlot, because the merchants of the earth have become rich from the excessive wealth of her luxury (Revelation 18:3).

If you go through the list in Revelation 18 of what the Harlot and her merchants traded in (Revelation 18:12-13), you will recognize many items that are commonly used in well-furnished churches and cathedrals to this day. Items like very valuable wood, marble, gold, silver, precious stones and pearls, fine linen, purple silk, and scarlet, of which the vestments of clergy and ceremonial items and statues are made. And incense, frankincense, wine, olive oil, fine flour, and wheat, of which are often used in rituals. If you go through a typical church supply catalog today, all these fine and very expensive items are still being sold.

But in Revelation 18, the worse items being traded by the Harlot and her merchants are slaves and human lives, which refers to the slave trade, of which the church cannot deny being involved in, as it is well known that Christians and their kingdoms, like in Great Britain, France, Spain, Portugal, and the United States, participated in enslaving Africans for centuries during their expansion into the New World. And perhaps most notoriously and recently, the Catholic kingdom of Belgium under King Leopold II, brutally enslaved the people of the Congo until early in the last century.

Because of the Harlot’s vast corruption through many centuries, her sins have piled up as high as heaven (Revelation 18:5), the Lord remembers her offenses and will destroy her; In one day her plagues will come, plague and mourning and famine, and she will be burned with fire, for the Lord God who judges her is strong (Revelation 18:8).

If these words are too strong for you, then you have not grown with solid spiritual food. Didn’t Paul warn the church to not be arrogant in our election to the kingdom? Our anointment as ministers replaced the Hebrew priesthood, who are of the natural olive tree, but wasn’t it because of sin the natural olive branches were cut off? So do not be conceited, but fear, for if God did not spare the natural branches, He will not spare you either (Romans 11:11-21).

The Apostle James reinforces this concept of the Harlot Church when he called the sinning brethren, adulteresses,” in James 4 (James 4:4-10).

You adulteresses, do you not know that friendship with the world is hostility toward God? Therefore, whoever wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. Or do you think that the scripture says to no purpose, ‘He jealously desires the Spirit whom He has made to dwell in us’?

And the Paul noted, Do you not know that you are a temple of God and that the Spirit of God truly dwells in you? (1 Corinthians 3:16)

God gives a greater grace. Therefore it says, ‘God is opposed to the proud, but gives grace to the humble.’ Submit therefore to God, and do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God in you, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption when the Lord returns (Ephesians 4:30). But resist the devil and remove the hooks darkness has in you, and the enemy will flee from you.

We know that no one who has been born of God wishes to continue in sin; for whomever was born of God has His Spirit within, and if his will remains strong for righteousness, he can keep from falling to temptation, and the evil one does not touch him. (1 John 5:18)

Remember the Lord’s warning – the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak (Matthew 26:41; Mark 14:38). Therefore, be apart from sin and temptation, and come close to God and He will come close to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Be miserable, and mourn, and weep over your sins; let your laughter be turned into mourning, and your joy into gloom, so that you may humble yourselves in the presence of the Lord, and He will lift you up.

Now you can see, God accused the church of adultery in the New Testament, just as He did of His people in the Old Testament. God calls her the Harlot or Prostitute because His people belong to Him through covenant, like a bride to her husband (Malachi 2:14), and we are supposed to be loyal to Him and His commands. So sexual immorality, fornication, and adultery are used to describe the behavior of God’s people and the Harlot Babylon. The Old Testament has many references to His people being described as a prostitute and committing adultery because of her sins, and the Lord even said He divorced His People for it (Jeremiah 3:8).

The term “God’s People,” however, usually applies only to Jews and Christians. Muslims believe they belong to God as well, but their faith is a corrupted version of scripture and truth that was brought forward by imposter spirits, so even though they believe they inherit God’s kingdom through Abraham’s first son, Ishmael, born through the slave woman, Hagar, God said it was Abraham’s promised son, Isaac, through his wife Sarah, who received the promise of the eternal covenant (Genesis 17:18-21). Scripture says Abraham’s descendants through Hagar and Ismael will not receive God’s eternal inheritance, for the son of the slave woman shall not be an heir with the son of the free woman (Galatians 4:20; Genesis 21:10).

The truth of what the Harlot Babylon is should now be clear. The great city is God’s people and other believers who were and are corrupted in sin. After the church came out of the Beast that was ancient Rome, she has had great power and rank in the centuries afterwards, but unfortunately, she was also corrupted by pagan traditions and the influence of demons, not unlike what Judaism went through. I already brought up imposters in the church, and that Christ stated Judaism was corrupted by Satan, but I also said Islam is part of the Harlot. That religion doesn’t seem to belong with Judaism or Christianity.

However, if you understand that Islam believes in God and the Abrahamic forefathers, then it’s easy to see that Muslims have a history in common with Jews and the church. The Lord guided me to see this early in 2020, so the Harlot Babylon is the great unassailable city consisting of people from any Abrahamic religion – Judaism, Christianity, and Islam – or any other religion that believes in God, but live in sin, because they believe in and teach false versions of God, His kingdom, and righteousness.

A part in Islam’s harlotry is from her antichrist beliefs that fail the test of acknowledging Christ in the flesh, as the Apostle John said, By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses Yeshua Mashiach has come in the flesh is from God; and every spirit that does not confess Yeshua is not from God; this is the spirit of the antichrist (1 John 4:1-3). So when you understand that Islam was founded by Muhammad, who said the Archangel Gabriel taught and guided him to found a new religion that denies the truth of Christ about 500 years after He came, you have to conclude that Islam’s Gabriel was not a spirit from God, but an imposter.

The seriousness of false teaching is emphasized in all my speaking of imposters and false teaching. It truly is a sin (Galatians 1:1-9), as Apostle Paul said, [Those who distort the gospel of Christ are to be accursed.] But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be accursed! (Galatians 1:6-9). And even in the Old Covenant, it was a sin to give false teaching, as the Lord said, Whatever I command you, you shall be careful to do; you shall not add to nor take anything away from it (Deuteronomy 4:2, 12:32).

Being cursed from false gospels and teaching doesn’t just include being afflicted with imposter spirits, but it can also have you living in sin that risks you and your family’s state of righteousness, and therefore ability to come safely through the judgments at the end of this age.

It may not be obvious, but a sin the church and Harlot unwittingly participate in is idolatry or the worship of idols, other gods, or anything that is not God (1 Corinthians 10:6-14; Colossians 3:5). That includes the saints and other spirits, like the imposters I brought up, so when believers follow the false teachings of imposters and make them their masters, they are committing idolatry, because they are worshipping them and treating them the same as God.

We are not supposed to have more than one God, one Teacher, Father, Master, or Leader (Matthew 23:9-10; Matthew 6:24; Luke 16:13), so if we follow false ones or follow preachers that follow false ones, we are not truly living by the Spirit or through God as our only Teacher, Father, and Leader.

This hidden idolatry and using false teaching and guidance are reasons why many Christians and other believing communities and individuals have come under judgment in these times, like dying of COVID-19 and having no protection from the torture and attack of militant groups. This is discernment the church and God’s people are in much need of, especially when so many think judgment, like COVID-19, is not judgment from God.

However, the pandemic is from the Lord, and the climate of God’s judgments is heating up, and the corals are dying. In the end, the church and all institutions that are part of the Harlot will be destroyed, for Christ will not be leading a corrupted church, People, or kingdom when He returns. False teaching will be destroyed, and the weeds in the kingdom are being burned at the end of this age (Matthew 13:30, 13:40-42). This has already begun. Satan and his deceptions, which include false teaching, will be prevented from corrupting mankind after the Lord returns, at least until the thousand-year Millennial Reign is complete (Revelation 20:1-3).

The Lord is warning now again, Come out of the Harlot Babylon. He has revealed her nature, so you may leave and not be a part of her sins. This means you must leave her ways and stop accepting false teaching, false guidance, and false gospels from imposters of the Lord and His saints. If you are truly loyal to God, you will be very diligent, as I have, to remove yourself and your ministries from the influences of these imposters and their teaching, and you will make certain you belong to the true Lord of all and know what righteousness really is.

You would also address any sin the Harlot is accused of, such as haughtiness, self-exaltation, and greed (Revelation 17:4, 18:3, 18:7, 18:9, 18:16), sorcery (Revelation 18:23), thievery, bearing false witness, swearing falsely by the Lord’s name (Zechariah 5:1-4), and all kinds of other sin that violate loyalty to God and His commandments, which is stated as sexual immorality or fornication in Revelation 17.

In contrast to the Harlot, the land of the loyal and Married People of God is called Beluah, Hebrew for Married (Isaiah 62:4). This refers to truly belonging to the Lord, which by the New Covenant happens when we are saved and, literally, reborn with God’s Spirit through Christ. I have often spoken of how that works, and that sin alone cannot take away our eternal salvation in Christ (see The True Gospel and Imposters), so even if you live in sin and are in the Harlot, that doesn’t mean you lost your eternal salvation. But in God’s Alarm today, you are being called to see how sin and being part of the Harlot can greatly affect your salvation in this life - how well you are protected against judgment and tribulation.

In Hosea 6, the Lord says, For I desire loyalty rather than sacrifice, and the understanding of God rather than burnt offerings (Hosea 6:6), which means He prefers our loyalty or faithfulness to Him, and acting in righteousness or knowing how to act and living it. That is the "knowledge, understanding, or acknowledgement of God" in that verse. He wants that faithfulness, rather than sacrifices and burnt offerings, which are less important observations of God's laws. That means God wants our loyalty and righteousness more than our minute obeying of unimportant or less important laws and commands.

Christ rebuked Jewish teachers in His time for that, saying, "Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you tithe mint and dill and cumin, and abandoned the weightier matters of the law: justice and mercy and faithfulness. Indeed, these are things you should have done without neglecting the others. You blind guides, who strain out a gnat and swallow a camel!" (Matthew 23:23-24). Too much of the church doesn't take that rebuke to heart because Christ was speaking to Jews, but I speak now to all who claim to be God's, so do not think His rebuke remains only on the Jews. I don't know how many times the Lord has rebuked in the same way since His alarm call was first made.

Many have scoffed and not taken what I say seriously, but truly, the church and all other believing communities have fallen to the same corruptions that synagogues of Satan did millennia ago. God's people all unwittingly remain loyal to what is false, and as we go through this alarm and its updates, you will see the Lord addressing all His people today, whether you believe in Christ, walk in the Law of Moses, or hold to the teachings of Muhammad.

A very important part of loyalty and righteousness to God in this age is to make sure you really do belong to Him by maintaining your eternal salvation in the kingdom through Christ. I am not speaking of salvation through works, which is a false gospel. I’m referring to how the New Covenant works to save and deny our eternal salvation.

Remember, Paul said we do not belong to God if we do not have His Spirit (Romans 8:9), which refers to our being reborn with the Holy Spirit by the New Covenant. It is the state of being truly saved in Christ. So to leave the Harlot, the first step is loyalty to God by making sure we truly belong to Him and are reborn through the New Covenant.

That is done by fulfilling and keeping its terms, as it is a conditional covenant, just like the Old Covenant was and still is. A person’s submission to be a Jew under the Law of Moses requires obedience to all the commands God gave in it (Galatians 3:10, 5:3; Deuteronomy 4:2, 12:32), as well as, acceptance of its blessings and curses. It is a heavy yoke to live under, as that Law has many conditions to be fulfilled, many of which can no longer be satisfied, because priestly duties, blood sacrifices, and other offerings are no longer being performed.

This strict need to obey all the Law of Moses (Galatians 5:3) is why Paul said all who agree to it is cursed, For it is written: ‘Cursed is everyone who does not abide by all the things written in the book of the Law, to do them’ (Galatians 3:10; Deuteronomy 27:26).

The New Covenant, though, is a much lighter yoke. We only need belief in Yeshua, acknowledge that in front of others, and never deny that faith publicly (Matthew 10:32-33). Christ said, Therefore, everyone who acknowledges Me before people, I will also acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven, but whoever denies Me before people, I will also deny before My Father who is in heaven (Matthew 10:32-33).

That is the more complete picture of how the New Covenant works with faith in Christ. These details, as well as others, are commonly overlooked by the church, but God brought me to a fuller understanding of His kingdom as a very important part of ministry. If you want more scriptural back-up and other evidence for these things, see The True Gospel and Imposters.

Our proper fulfilment of getting and keeping eternal salvation in Christ is what Yeshua meant in "seek first His kingdom..." (Matthew 6:33). Doing it properly ensures we belong to Christ, even though we are imperfect in being sinless.

Furthermore, the whole of Matthew 6:33 says, Seek first His kingdom and His righteousness [then your material needs will be provided], which refers to becoming part of God’s kingdom, as well as, to coming out of sin – Seek first His righteousness. It is sin that makes us reside in the Harlot Babylon even if we are truly saved in Christ. That means people can be part of the Harlot and the saved Bride at the same time. Remember, both the Harlot and New Jerusalem are spiritual and metaphorical cities that are defined by sin and righteousness, respectively.

The kinds of sin you and your ministry participate in defines whether or not you are in the Harlot, while the kind of righteousness you have defines whether you are in New Jerusalem, at least in this life. It is only at the end of this life that your final state of being in the eternal heaven of New Jerusalem will be determined, because it is only then that our ability to deny faith in Christ and make other life choices is ended.

Being truly saved in Christ through the power of His gospel is a huge factor in whether or not we get into heaven in the next life, so no matter how you feel about what is said here, never turn back on your belief in Christ and never deny that publicly. Those are sins of denying Christ that will remove your name from the Book of Life. It is something the Married Bride of Christ will never do.

However, there are many other sins that come out of the Harlot, and in Zechariah 5:1-4, it says swearing falsely by the Lord’s name is one. But you may wonder how the church does that. An example is using the Lord’s name for selfish and unrighteous gain, such as when the church sold atonement for sins and penitence certificates, and a modern-day example is in the Prosperity Gospel, when ministers of this false doctrine use the Lord’s name to pronounce the lie of great wealth and prosperity for you in return for giving them money. They often say you are giving to the Lord, but if they are good stewards of what belongs to the Lord, not one penny would be used for selfish gain or for anything the Lord does not deem as fitting for His ministry work.

In the Harlot, there are ministries living as multi-millionaires off of tithes and offerings; money that is often deemed sacred to the Lord (Deuteronomy 26:13), literally belonging to Him, not His stewards. There will be an accounting for the misuse and theft of His funds, as there surely is for lying in His name for personal gain. Greed and excessive luxury are stated as traits of the Harlot in Revelation (Revelation 18:3, 18:7, 18:9).

The sins of murder and idolatry through the saints are also shown in her, because she is drunk with the blood of the saints and witnesses of Christ (Revelation 17:6). This not only refers to the church and God’s people killing the servants of God (Revelation 18:24 also states this), but it also refers to her idolatrous drunkenness in worshipping the saints and angels. This is especially common in the Catholic and Orthodox churches, who often pray to and idolize the saints and angels. This has brought imposters of the saints to deceive them further with false miracles and signs, like apparitions of Mother Mary performing signs and other miracles that end up having the saints and angels worshipped. God's true servants will not let you worship them (Acts 10:25-26; Revelation 19:10, 22:8-9).

In Revelation 18, it says, the Harlot has become a dwelling place of demons and a prison of every unclean spirit, and a prison of every unclean and hateful bird (Revelation 18:2). This is a reference to how the church and other believing communities being afflicted with demons of all kinds because of their sin. And the reference to unclean and hateful birds is simply a restatement of demons in the Harlot, because birds are a metaphor for Satan and demons in the Parable of the Sower, where they take away God’s good seed given to people (Matthew 13:4, 13:19; Mark 4:4, 4:15; Luke 8:5, 8:12).

And what about sorcery or witchcraft? (Revelation 18:23) How can the church be accused of that when she has accused others of the same through her history? This is also fulfilled in the church, as I have seen methods of creating holy water that use forms of sorcery, and there are sects of Christianity around the world that mix pagan traditions of black magic or voodoo with Christian religion, like found in Haiti, the Caribbean, and African communities.

All of these truths are the picture of the Harlot Babylon that God gave to me over many years. His alarm call fits what I know we must leave behind in the Harlot – the lies, false teaching, false guidance, false sin, false righteousness, and allegiance to the imposters that spread them. They’ve taken hold of God’s people, and the church is dying from sins related to them, as well as to better understood ones.

To truly leave the Harlot Babylon, believers must remove any allegiance or loyalty to false teachings, false gospels, and the churches, denominations, ministries, ministers, groups, and imposter spirits that keep promoting them. That is a large majority of the church and other believing sects today.

Keep loyalty in God through Christ, especially through the True Gospel, then leave behind more sin, like the worst sins from both the Old and New Testaments are in breaking the two greatest commandments of loving the Lord and loving each other (Matthew 19:19, 22:36-40, 5:43-48; Mark 12:28-34; Luke 10:27; Romans 13:8-10; Galatians 5:13-14; James 2:8; Leviticus 19:18). Too often I have seen Christians judging irrationally, holding tight to unforgiveness, and seeking revenge, especially in the recent years of civil unrest. In contrast to this, the Lord said, Do not judge, but forgive and leave room for Him to avenge (Matthew 7:1-5; Luke 6:37-38; 1 Corinthians 5:12-13; Romans 14:1-13; Romans 12:18-21).

Some less understood sin we need to leave behind are ones I was guided about during much of my ministry, like those involving tithes, offerings, and vows . I cover that in Properly Handling God's Money and Our Taxes.

Sin about sex and marriage are others, which I talk about in Sex and Marriage - The Plain Truth. The world and even the church don't treat intimacy, sex, and marriage in the right ways, and so promiscuity, lust, sex abuse, and other sexual sins are common throughout the world, the church, and among God's people.

More serious sins should be left as well, because John notes, "No one who lives in [God] keeps on sinning. No one who continues to sin has either seen Him or known Him" (1 John 3:6), which goes back to Hosea 6:6 about knowing what God wants. No one who continues to live in serious sin truly knows God or is blind to what sin and righteousness actually is.

These sins especially include the ones I talk about in The True Gospel and Imposters that prevent people from getting into the kingdom of heaven, such as abusive anger, murder, and even stealing and lying. See The True Gospel and Imposters for a complete list.

See Ministry Warnings for a more complete list of denominations, sects, and ministries to not be allied with. The church and God’s people can no longer blindly follow lies and imposters, as the very end of the age is drawing ever close, and the Harlot will be completely destroyed in its great tribulations.

The Beast and its kings will be a part of her destruction, because they hate the Harlot and will make her desolate and burn her with fire (Revelation 17:16-17), and the weeds of the devil and the bad fish of the church’s catch will be destroyed with her in fire, because some of the angels gathering them to be burned at the end of the age, are angels who hold the final tribulations and plagues of Revelation that will destroy much of the earth, mankind, and all of the Harlot Babylon (Matthew 13:30, 13:40-42, 13:49-50; Revelation 8:1-9:20, 11:15-19, 14:14-18:24).

But God’s people who are saved from that time - the Bride of Revelation 12 with the wings of a great eagle - will be kept safe, for a time, times, and half a time during the worst tribulations, because of her righteousness (Revelation 12:14).

Satan will be enraged by this and turn to persecute the rest of the church who are not protected, but who still keep the Lord’s commandments and hold to faith in Christ during the hour of man’s testing (Revelation 12:17, 3:10).

It will be a severe time, as the Lord said, if God had not shortened those days, no life would have been saved; but for the sake of the elect, whom He chose, He shortened them (Mark 13:20).

And remember what God said to His people through Amos:

Woe unto you that desire the day of the Lord Yahovah!… The day of Yahovah is darkness, and not light. As if a man did flee from a lion, and a bear met him; or went into the house, and leaned his hand on the wall, and a snake bit him. Shall not the day of Yahovah be darkness, and not light? Even very dark, with no brightness in it?

I hate, I despise your festivals, and I will not delight in your solemn assemblies. Though you give offerings, I will not accept them, neither will I regard your rich offerings of peace. Take away from Me the noise of your songs, for I will not hear the melody of your music.

But let judgment run down as waters, and righteousness as a mighty stream. Did you give Me offerings in the wilderness during your scarcity, My people? But instead you have borne the tabernacle of your greed and upheld your idols and gods, which you made to yourselves. Therefore will I cause you to go into captivity beyond Damascus, says Yahovah, whose name is the God of hosts.
(Amos 5:18-27)

Given all I’ve said, will you take no action, continue to work with imposters and lies, and remain in the Harlot Babylon who will be persecuted by the Beast and be destroyed? Or will you do more than simply pray for the strength to escape the final hour? (Luke 21:36)

The Lord said, Be on alert and Be ready and keep your lamps lit, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour when you do not think He will (Matthew 24:42-44; Luke 12:35). No one, not even Christ or the angels, but only the Father knows when the hour of the Lord’s return will be (Matthew 24:36), but it is clearer now that the fig tree sprouts and summer is near, right at our doors (Matthew 24:32-33), so leave the Harlot as the Lord has warned and revealed her mystery. Put effort to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, so you come out of her and join the Bride who flies with wings to safety.

You might have noticed the Lord said above, Keep your lamps lit. That is a direct link to the Parable of the Ten Virgins waiting for the Lord to return (Matthew 25:1-13). Half of the virgins were unwise, though, and did not keep their lamps lit and were shut out from joining the Lord on His return. It is a direct reference to keeping eternal salvation in Christ and truly belonging to the Lord, its importance of which I have been talking about for coming safely through these times.

Update - Russian Invasion of Ukraine affirms God's Alarm 2/26/2022

Russia started a war on Ukraine a few days ago and I feel the Lord compels me to speak about it. The world is rightly concerned over this unprovoked use of force against a democratic country. President of Russia, Vladimir Putin, appeared to use strongarm tactics in the weeks before the invasion by building up military forces along most of Ukraine’s border in an apparent attempt to prevent what he stated was Western influence in Ukraine, especially to keep Ukraine from joining the NATO alliance (North Atlantic Treaty Organization), which was initially formed to defend against possible attack by Germany and Russia after World War II, though, today, NATO defends against any attack on member countries[6.22.1].

Now that Russia decided to invade, the world, and especially Europe, is in panic. I hear pleas and prayers for Russia to stop their war, especially in the church. The pope even made an unprecedented visit to the Russian embassy in an appeal for peace[6.22.2], but I’m afraid these petitions will not be heard, because in the weeks Russia was building up troops, I felt by the Spirit, Russia would invade and war is one of the world’s next Tribulation judgments from God in what is our Day of the Lord. That Day grew in intensity with the COVID-19 pandemic, and I noted it was fulfillment of prophecy by Isaiah (see COVID-19 for more).

A part of that prophecy reads, Terror and pit and snare confront you, O inhabitant of the earth. Then it will be that he who flees the report of disaster will fall into the pit, and he who climbs out of the pit will be caught in the snare; For the windows above are opened, and the foundations of the earth shake (Isaiah 24:17-18).

That verse is linked to prophecy of judgment in the Day of the Lord Yahovah from Amos, because that Day will be disaster, and a pit, and snare, As if a man did flee from a lion, and a bear met him; or went into the house, and leaned his hand on the wall, and a snake bit him. Shall not the day of Yahovah be darkness, and not light? Even very dark, with no brightness in it? (Amos 5:19-20).

COVID-19 is God’s disaster or pit upon the world, but not just the secular world, it is upon believers as well. This is seen by the prophecies of Isaiah and Amos being directed towards His people, and is shown in the real world with many in the church and other believing communities falling to these judgments. These are end time judgments as I spoke of above and will continue and become more severe.

Some believers see these Old Testament prophecies as only about judgment on Israel when Babylon conquered them, however, I showed in the COVID-19 thread how it fulfilled Isaiah, and now I will show it further goes with end-time events today, because Isaiah 24 says after the judgments, Then the moon will be ashamed and the sun will be put to shame, for Yahovah of hosts will reign on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem, and His glory will be before His elders (Isaiah 24:23).

That goes with Revelation 8 and one of the last Tribulation events, when a third of the sun, a third of the moon, and a third of the stars were struck, so that a third of them would be darkened and the day would not shine for a third of it, and the night in the same way (Revelation 8:12). That is the shame of the moon and sun in Isaiah 24, and of course, the end of Isaiah 24:23 speaks of the Lord reigning and His elders around Him, which corresponds to Revelation 11:15-18, in the final trumpet of the Tribulation when Christ returns to take control of the world and reign forever with His elders.

All this means, Russia’s invasion is God’s will and a part of Tribulation events, another snare and pit in the Day of the Lord, so as His people, we must recognize it and pray, petition, and act accordingly. Just as the Lord told His people to not fight the Babylonians or flee to Egypt so that they might live, we need to recognize what God’s will is in our own times.

I posted this update in God’s Alarm because this tribulation is God’s judgment upon not only a sinful dark world, but also the church and believers who remain loyal to the ways of the Harlot Babylon I spoke of above. So recognize these as God’s judgments upon believers as well, and not simply because of Satan or for the darkness of unbelieving man.

This is reinforced by Amos, when the Lord says, Seek Me so that you may live. But do not resort to Bethel and do not come to Gilgal, nor cross over to Beersheba; For Gilgal will certainly go into captivity and Bethel will come to nothing. Seek the Lord so that you may live, or He will break through like a fire in the house of Joseph, and it will consume with no one to extinguish it for Bethel (Amos 5:5-6).

The Lord is saying seek Him directly, not in idolatrous petitions at holy sites, like Bethel and Gilgal, where the people have worshiped the places, altars, and imposter spirits of the saints and angels that promote this idolatry. These are direct references to things I said the Harlot Babylon and the Harlot Church do above.

So remove your loyalty from the shrines, altars, and spirits encouraging your worship of them, places, and things - anything not truly the Lord. Remove your loyalty from ministers, churches, rabbis, and synagogues that continue in those ways and in misusing God’s name and funds, who are greedy and use dishonest and selfish gain, and who use false teaching to enslave and misdirect. These are the ways of the Harlot, who will be destroyed in this Day as well.

These things are surely fearful, so remember what the fear of the Lord is meant to do – to keep us from sin, and to change and repent knowing that God does not let sin go unpunished (Colossians 3:25; Romans 2:5-16; Ezekiel 33:12-20; Jeremiah 17:10, 21:14, 25:14, 32:19; Numbers 14:18; Nahum 1:3; Proverbs 24:12; 1 Thessalonians 4:6), and that His people are held to worse judgment because they should know better (Hebrews 10:26-31; James 3:1; Luke 12:48), yet the Lord will be more forgiving to those who seek Him and heed His calls to change.

Heed also, a call not to panic or listen to theorists and speculators who tell you to horde and spread lies and rumors, but keep a sober mind. This war in Ukraine is only the beginning of long trials for the world that will take years yet to complete. So continue to live life, as the Lord has also directed me to do, but keep your ears and eyes aware of what is truly His voice. Peace and discernment be on you all in Mashiach Yeshua. Amen.

Update - The Army of Revelation 9 2/27/2022
I feel the Lord is compelling me to write again today about things related to the Russian invasion. Last week, when Russia was building up troops around Ukraine, I felt the Lord wanted me to investigate the army of Revelation 9. I knew that since we were at the end of the age, the elements of this massive 200 million soldier army must be in existence now.

The verses show Apostle John saying, "The number of the armies of the horsemen was two hundred million; I heard the number of them. And this is how I saw in my vision the horses and those who sat on them: the riders had breastplates the color of fire, of hyacinth, and of brimstone; and the heads of the horses are like the heads of lions; and out of their mouths came fire and smoke and brimstone. A third of mankind was killed by these three plagues, by the fire, the smoke, and the brimstone which came out of their mouths. For the power of the horses is in their mouths and in their tails; for their tails are like serpents and have heads, and with them they do harm" (Revelation 9:16-19).

Further affirmation of God's Alarm 3/10/2022
Updated 4/28/2022

God gave even more evidence of His Alarm and for the accuracy of what I've been saying here and through the years. It was posted in an update for the Stop Rebuke thread. I will copy its contents here for convenience, but note that I refer to things brought up in the other thread, so please read the entire thread if you have not already.

Copy of Update for The Lord said, Let no one argue and let no one rebuke -
Updated 4/28/2022

Yesterday, March 5th, I started writing this update, but I only got a few paragraphs before I stopped for the night. I didn’t continue because it was getting late after I updated the meaning of the number seven with many new affirmations from the Bible for things I was going to talk about here. Then today I thought I would leave the update for tomorrow, but then when I was watching the nightly news on TV, I noticed the Iowa tornado reported yesterday killed SEVEN people and spanned a track of FOURTEEN miles[1.1, 1.2, 1.3] – two numbers that caught my attention, because of things I updated for the number seven yesterday (see 7 in The Meaning of Numbers).

Seven and fourteen, which is two sevens, came up a lot in those updates, so when I saw the tornado also had seven and fourteen linked to it, I took it as the Lord urging me to finish this update. I went to find news references for the tornado and I was shocked to see, the tornado was reported to have touched down only minutes before I posted the updates for the number seven. That means the tornado was forming when I was updating the meaning of seven.

All these links are obviously no coincidence, and I knew it all connected with what I was going to talk about, so let’s see why the Lord has given this urgency.

My last update in this Stop Rebuke thread was to share further guidance related to what God gave me with ministry and Ireland. If you didn’t see the details, it basically said, though, my life has been moved towards Ireland and Irish culture, I am not just an “apostle to Ireland” like St. Patrick was. The Lord anointed me for His kingdom as a whole, and that has not changed because of all the guidance related to Ireland I got in recent months.

The purpose for this update is to share what God has shown me related to my role as His servant. It began in the last week of January when someone told me they got a dream vision of the number 727. I was never guided about that number before, but I noted I didn’t believe it means a reverse or opposite of 272, which I brought up in this thread on December 2nd last year. God used that number to guide both me and a young Christian.

The person who got the vision of 727 is actually the same believer I talked about with the number 272. God gave him the number many times to say “heed and obey my counsel.” However, this person also had problems keeping in my counsel, and trusting that I truly knew the real meanings behind scripture or that I had much better discernment than others in the church, because of how God taught me and continues to guide me.

When he brought up 727, I knew it had to refer to me again, where the 72 continued to represent me and my counsel as a minister. That leaves the seven to understand. I already knew 7 refers to being Godly, divine, complete or whole, and is God’s number. This is backed up by much scripture and how God used it in the Bible. You can go to The Meaning of Numbers if you want to see the details.

Because of the meaning of seven, I didn’t feel 727 could mean the opposite of 272. I actually found very few numbers to mean their opposite when reversed, and it would make no sense for the Lord to tell someone to listen to and obey my counsel for years, and then all of a sudden say, don’t.

I had never gotten guidance about the number 27 either, so 727 had to refer to 72-7, which would represent the nature of my state now as the Lord’s minister and teacher – being Godly and complete in my teaching, or what Apostle Paul said was an approved workman for the Lord in 2 Timothy 2:15 – one who accurately handles the word of truth.

It was just the day after that I felt strongly by the Spirit that I was correct about what 727 means, and later on in the day, this was affirmed when I was reviewing a brethren’s teaching and gave him better translations for scripture than he used and what I saw in the translations I usually use (the NASB, NIV, and KJV Bibles).

When I saw the Lord timing things in my life to synch to spiritual guidance and affirm what I felt 727 meant, I thanked the Lord. Praise Him for His work in us! Because I had asked the Lord to make me an approved workman for Him many years ago. This took much time, experience, and hard work, and didn't happen just from reading the Bible and studying. The Lord taught me much more through experiences and trials coupled with spiritual guidance, like He does throughout the church, but it is the kind of experiences and anointment I got, and my drive to get the actual, untainted truth and remain loyal to our true God that mattered most in coming to be approved by the Lord.

I speak this now not out of ego or to commend myself. It is the Lord who worked things to say this through His hand, so I will boast in the Lord. For it is not the one who commends himself that is approved, but the one whom the Lord commends (2 Corinthians 10:17-18). So now I will share what He showed me, because I would not share it of my own will, knowing what people would say of pride and conceit.

I thought what I understood about 727 was all the Lord would give about it. He used it to tell someone I am indeed an approved workman and to go back to listening to my counsel and take me seriously, because he was turning away from it. But like with the number 383, I saw links to 727 later on that gave more confirmation of related spiritual guidance. I was guided to talk about all the real-world links God gave with 383 to show how certain sins truly do anger the Lord, so that His People would take heed and change.

Now the Lord is doing that with 727. It doesn’t only have to do with the tornado in Iowa with links to the number seven. On Friday night, just two days ago, and the day before the tornado, I was watching the ABC News 20/20 feature about the Russian invasion of Ukraine, when I noticed they showed a photo of Ukrainian President Zelensky next to a background with the numbers 72,7 next to him, and when the camera panned down, I saw the numbers 27,3 directly underneath.

If you read this whole thread, you’d know 273 was significant as well, and refers to the Lord guiding me to not work so much and focus on creative things and personal happiness. So when I saw 727 and 273 on the show, I had to find out what those numbers referred to.

I thought they referred to 72.7 and 27.3 because many countries outside the United States use commas instead of periods to separate the decimal place in numbers. I quickly found that Zelensky’s exit polls in the 2019 Ukrainian election gave him 72.7% and the incumbent’s tally was 27.3%[1.4]. I also saw some polls gave the incumbent 27.2%, which also links with the 272, 273 number guidance I spoke of before.

I started wondering why the Lord would have these very specific numbers come up in the 2019 election. They exactly match numbers the Lord has brought up in this thread and in spiritual guidance to me and others for years. To investigate further, I did a search for events that had 72.7 linked to them. To my surprise, I saw the number linked to more elections and things I was guided on before.

One article said, at the time, Joe Biden had 72.7 million popular votes in the 2020 U.S. Presidential Election[1.5]. Another article said Donald Trump had 72.7 million “followers”[1.6], also during the same election, which I believe referred to the number of his Twitter followers before he was banned from Twitter.

Another article linked to Trump’s comments about being “lynched” by Democrats stated 72.7% of people actually lynched from 1882-1968 were Black[1.8]. His comments were about an investigation into his dealings with Zelensky when political favors were being questioned. Trump's comment about being lynched brought outrage from social activists who doubted he really knew what being lynched was like. I would agree with them that his choice of words was insensitive, and that his trying to make himself look like the victim is valid. There should be no reason to hide White House records and silence people during that or any other investigation if he had nothing to fear. His illegal removal and possession of many boxes of documents, including top secret documents, that he was supposed to hand over to the National Archives when he left office in January 2021[1.12, 1.13], shows further that he considers himself exempt from the law. And because he had the documents for over a year and destroyed some before the National Archives could retrieve them[1.13], very likely affirms he was attempting to hide or destroy sensitive and incriminating evidence against him. Trump has a history of hiding records, which is a red flag for whether or not he can be trusted. Recently, New York held him in contempt for not supplying records and cooperating with an investigation[1.16, 1.15].

Another article talked about 72.7 million Nigerians collected Permanent Voter Cards in their 2019 general election[1.7], which took place only months before the 2019 Ukrainian election when Zelensky got 72.7% on exit polls.

I also found a survey stated 82% of Ukraine was Christian and 72.7% of them declared themselves in the Orthodox Church[1.10].

And another article stated 72.7 million women were in the United States workforce in 2010[1.9]. This article talked about “self-satisfied, know-it-all” egotistical men.

There are a lot of references to voting, heads of state, and pride here. Most of the 727 references linked to elections, Zelensky, Biden, and Trump. What is God trying to say in all this? Is He saying I’m an egotistic proud preacher since the 727 referred to me?

I’m sure some would say that, but that would not be putting everything into correct context or letting God interpret. The Lord is reaffirming things I’ve talked about with the 2020 Presidential Election and Donald Trump that link him to Satan and that speak of the loss of discernment in God’s people.

However, God isn’t only reminding you to trust what I say about lies, fake news, and false teaching. This is where 727 links to egotistical people come in. It isn’t just about Donald Trump’s ego, but also goes with people in the church and other believing communities stubbornly believing they have no error, and who constantly argue and fight over doctrine while they refuse correction.

I’ve seen too often, groups and sects of the brethren calling each other names and poking fun at each other while they give what appears to them to be flawless arguments and rebuke for doctrine. This does not glorify God or the church.

Apostle Paul said, they have strayed from [the command to treat each other with love and a pure heart] and have turned aside to fruitless discussion, wanting to be teachers of the Law, even though they do not understand either what they are saying or the matters about which they make confident assertions (1 Timothy 1:5-7).

These fruitless debates must stop, because all that happens is the arguing parties run in circles, not convincing either side to change, while they make a mockery of the church and God’s kingdom. Thank the Lord, He taught me to not do that early on in ministry. Over the years, I learned why Paul told us not to argue about scripture or teaching. People become blinded by what they believe to be true, and they must be completely objective and willing to let go of lies and what is wrong if they are to see correctly.

This presumption of inerrancy in believers has often made them dismiss what I say, but obviously, the Lord is making me speak about this here, in a thread that showed the fulfilment of Zechariah’s prophecy about false prophets and teachers today, and the sin of God's people in Hosea.

This is linked to the tornado that killed seven people yesterday, which included children, because the Lord is reaffirming His warning and alarm call to change and leave the Harlot Babylon, as He said you’ve become like those who stand against a priest, so the people will fall, the prophet with them, your mother will be destroyed, and He will forget your children (Hosea 4:4-6).

I’ve stated who the Lord has revealed the Harlot Babylon to be, and that she is the mother who will be destroyed in Hosea 4. God’s People have remained loyal to her, the church and other believing groups that teach in serious error, instead of Him, so heed the urgency in His call now.

The links to heads of state with 727 refer to the Lord’s anointment in me, as one chosen and elected by Him. I was anointed like Jeremiah/Yirmiyahu and strengthened like Moses/Moshe when He called me through ministry. And He gave me a promised word years ago, which was Exodus 34:10, saying He would use me, like He did Moses, to perform miracles never seen before to be shown among all the people.

For years now, and even more so in the last few months in posts like this, I have been sharing these miracles, which are also God’s wonders on the earth prophesied by Joel/Yoel for The Last Days (Joel 2:30; Acts 2:19). The Lord has worked so much movement of the earth with real world objects and events, in numbers, in languages, and in people to guide and affirm through correlations that are impossible to explain as mere random coincidence, you would have to call them miracles and God's work.

But it isn’t wonder or awe that the Lord wants to convey here, it is danger and urgency, for He said in Exodus 34:10, It is a fearful thing that I am going to perform with you. Seven people, including children, were killed in a tornado that was on the ground for two sevens or 14 miles, not simply to move me to speak now, but to show God’s hand in it; remember seven is God’s number. These people died in God’s judgment.

Ukraine has come up in many of the 727 links here because God’s judgment is on her, and He is showing her to be the first country belonging to the Harlot Babylon to be judged in the coming wars of the Tribulation. That is affirmed because Ukraine is a large-majority Christian nation (82% or more) and 72.7% of Christian Ukrainians are Orthodox, a sect of Christianity I found to have false teachings and practices that put her in the Harlot Babylon.

The Lord also revealed to me parts of the army of Revelation 9 through Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. See the February 27th update to God’s Alarm thread for those details. And I'm certain you've seen the reports of atrocities happening to the people of Ukraine in the invasion, which again, includes the suffering and killing of children. Russia even targeted a children’s hospital, which resulted in casualites[1.14].

Everything I brought up here should make you pay careful attention, because even though the Lord gave me wonderful, inspiring guidance towards creativity, romance, and personal happiness with guidance related to 272 and 273 in this thread, I noted those numbers were linked to the incumbent president that lost the 2019 Ukrainian election.

I understood this to mean, much like with guidance related to Ireland, it is a reminder that my primary role is to serve the Lord and His kingdom as a whole, and not just to focus on Ireland, so any 273 pursuits towards personal happiness will come second to whatever the Lord calls me to do.

And if all these things weren’t enough, the Lord timed yet another discovery to go with this update. Yesterday, I came upon an article about an archaeological find showing proof that merchants in ancient Jerusalem used dishonest weights[1.11], despite God telling His people not to use them, but to have honest, true weights in Deuteronomy/Devarim 25:13-15.

The archaeologists found a two gerah weight that weighed almost three times as much as it should have. It’s true weight should be 0.944 grams. Why that’s interesting here is it links to the bank account I designated for God’s tithe funds. These are funds the Lord taught me must be treated with extra care because they are truly God’s sacred portion.

I’ve been teaching correct ways to handle God’s money for years and have had the bank account since 2015. I had no way to control account numbers when I opened the account, but the account number ends prominently with the numbers 944, matching the true weight God’s people should use.

The Lord is saying that my teaching on tithes, offerings, and sacred money is the true measure, and that is important here because it further affirms my role to lead in teaching, and that misusing God’s money, like tithes, is another sin of the Harlot Babylon. This misuse of God’s money was highlighted in God’s 383 guidance.

There is much in this update, but the Lord wants His people to heed His calls to leave the Harlot, and her ways; to change towards further righteousness in these times, because that is what will protect. It is the end of the age when simply believing in Christ and trying to follow God's general commands as the church commonly teaches from scripture, won’t be enough to save from the trials that have come and are coming.

Following the wrong things that popular churches, temples, synagogues, and preachers teach will keep you living in sin that will leave you unprotected in the greater Tribulations that are coming. The traumas you are seeing unfolding now will only get worse, so heed God’s call to leave the Harlot and change.

These amazing alignments of miracles or wonders on the earth to show the truth in more fulfilment of prophesy, not just with God’s promise to me in Exodus 34:10, but they fulfill also prophecy of the Bride with eagle’s wings in Revelation 12, who is saved in the "time, times, and half a time" of the Great Tribulation (Revelation 12:14).

And the serpent [Satan] hurled water like a river out of his mouth after the woman, so that he might cause her to be swept away with the flood. But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and drank up the river which the dragon had hurled out of his mouth. So the dragon was enraged with the woman, and went off to make war with the rest of her children, who keep the commandments of God and hold to the testimony of Yeshua[/Jesus] (Revelation 12:15-17).

The flood that Satan tries to drown the Bride in here is a huge mass of false spiritual guidance to mislead believers. I’ve seen this flood of lies everywhere for many years in the church now, and it has convinced many to unflinchingly follow Trump, Q and other Conspiracists, and false prophets and teachers.

But the earth opened its mouth and drank up the river from Satan - This is God’s working of His wonders on the earth I’ve been sharing that show the truth to counter the flood of lies from the enemy. However, this help from the Lord will only save you if you accept the truth in all these miracles of alignment that I have been giving.

But furthermore, it is not only things on the earth that God is using to show the truth, God's complete statement is, "I will show wonders in the sky above and signs on the earth below" (Joel 2:30/Yoel 3:3; also Acts 2:16-21), and you can see God has also given my things in the heavens to guide and show the truth as well.

It is the Bride that has earned the wings of an eagle who is saved and kept apart from the worst Tribulations of our times, "so that she could fly into the wilderness to her place, where she was nourished for a time, times, and half a time, away from the presence of the serpent" (Revelation 12:14), while the rest of the church and Christianity, like Messianic Judaism, those who "keep the commandments of God and hold to the testimony of Yeshua" (Revelation 12:17), will face the dragon’s rage as he makes war through the Beast and final antichrist and false prophet, just as it says in Revelation 12. Simply believing in Christ and following God's commands as the popular ministries and churches teach is not what grants protection for the Bride with wings.

Why is God moving His People like this? Through movement of "wonders in the sky above and signs on the earth below?" It's because we're in an age when we cannot blindly trust spiritual guidance from sources that say they are the Lord or of the Lord or they come in the name of the Lord. There is too much false guidance and teaching coming from imposters of the real thing, so the Lord has moved the nonspiritual, tangible, physical world and universe to show you the truth.

The Lord bless you with discernment, wisdom, and strength through Mashiach Yeshua (Christ Jesus). Amen.

Update - The Day Of The Lord Affirmed and Further Proof of Sin with 43, 44 5/16/2022
Updated 4/6/2023

This update has been waiting for quite a few weeks as I’ve taken care of other things, but ever since I first heard hundreds of children were being killed in Ukraine and 4.3 million of them (half of the child population) were displaced by Russia’s invasion[2.1, 2.2], I felt I would have to talk about it as further affirmation of God’s teruah alarm to correct sin and leave the Harlot Babylon.

I’ve stated multiple times how God said, I also will forget your children and how the people, prophet, and priest will fall (Hosea 4:5-6), because His People have forgotten His commands (Hosea 4:6). I’ve also shown God’s proof that Ukraine is part of the Harlot Babylon in the previous update. Still, most of the world, including believers, do not think the horrors, which include atrocities upon the civilians and children of Ukraine, like rape, torture, and indiscriminate execution[2.3, 2.4], are God’s judgment.

However, God said, My people have become lost sheep. Their shepherds have led them astray (Jeremiah 50:6).

In the weeks since I first noted 4.3 million Ukrainian children being displaced in the war, God has shown me many more reminders of guidance related to the numbers 43 and 44. This update will talk about that and give even more proof to the truth.

You probably know by now that the Lord guides me with the meaning of numbers and sometimes number sequences also have meaning, such as the 43 and 44 I will discuss here. This time 43 represents not going far enough or not being in the state that represents 44. This relationship is like how I was guided with other number sequences, such as 305 and 306 and 412 and 413.

306 represents pursuing God’s righteous mission despite great hardship and danger. I was guided to link the deaths of Christ and Martin Luther King, Jr. to 306 (see 306 in The Meaning of Numbers for more), so 305 would represent not going as far as 306 – not pursuing or completing God’s righteous mission.

Likewise, I was guided to link 413 to Philippians 4:13 and other scripture numbered 4:13 to go with the theme of God giving us the strength and help necessary to accomplish His goals (see 413 in The Meaning of Numbers for more). This means 412 represents God not giving us help or the pursuit of something that is not God’s goal.

To see what 43 and the 4.3 million displaced children go with, we need to understand what 44 goes with. 44 is another number I have not publicly talked about because God was still guiding me on it and only recently gave me enough to speak.

Years ago, I already knew 44 can represent double-Hope since four means Hope, but it was only recently that I was guided to connect it to two 44’s that oppose each other. The first is Mark 4:4, But Yeshua answered [the devil] and said, ‘It is written: Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes out of the mouth of God.’ (Mark 4:4; Deuteronomy 8:3).  This forty-four or four-four represents listening to and living in God’s commands and guidance.

The opposing 44 is contained in scripture I quoted in the original post for God’s Alarm, James 4:4, You adulteresses, do you not know that friendship with the world is hostility toward God? Therefore, whoever wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.

The 43 represents not going far enough with the good, first 44 - not living in God’s commands and guidance, represented by Mark 4:4’s Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes out of the mouth of God.

Things linked to 43, then represent living on bread alone or the ways and wisdom of the world, which will bring you to live in the bad 44 of James 4:4 – being adulteresses or harlots in opposition to God, who become enemies of God because they are friends with the world and its ways.

Furthermore, the Lord guided me to more 44 scriptures to reinforce this bad notion of 44 and living in sin:
  • "Circumcise yourselves to the Lord Yahovah and remove the foreskins of your hearts, People of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem. Or else My wrath will spread like fire and burn with no one to quench it, because of the evil of your deeds" (Jeremiah 4:4)
  • "Tremble [with fear of the Lord] and do not sin; Contemplate in your heart upon your bed [to be against sin] and be still" (Psalm 4:4)
  • "[My father] taught me and said to me, 'Let your heart take hold of my words. Keep my commandments and live'" (Proverbs 4:4)
God is pointing out with this link to 4.3 million displaced children to say it is happening to people that are not truly listening to or living by God’s ways. And this should be a BIG concern for believers, because Ukraine is a large-majority (82% or more[1.10]) Christian nation, and I noted in the last update that most of Ukraine’s Christians professed to being in a sect of Christianity that is more clearly in the Harlot Babylon.

God’s working of numbers here is showing how adulterous, Harlot believers who live in the ways of the world and false teaching from the church make themselves enemies of God. They live opposite of what they should be doing with regard to what God wants in 44 or Matthew 4:4, living by His every word, which means living righteously as God defines it, not by the world’s or by the corrupted ways of God’s people (the Harlot Babylon’s ways).

Over the many weeks since Ukraine’s invasion, I’ve seen much lamenting over the horrors happening to people and children there. And they include not just Christians, but Jews as well. There have been many parallel comparisons made with Ukraine and the Holocaust and with Putin and Hitler, but like with the Holocaust, most people think these atrocities are simply because of a madman or an evil regime.

I’ve heard many ask, “Why? What did innocent civilians and little children do to deserve this?”

The Lord is telling you now, Your ways are not righteous. My people, go out from the Harlot’s midst and deliver your souls from My fierce anger. Flee from this Babylon and save your lives! Do not perish in her punishment. Come out of her, My people, so that you will not share in her sins. This is the Lord Yahovah’s time of vengeance. For the report will come one year, and after that another year. And violence will be in the land with ruler against ruler. Therefore, behold the days are coming when I will punish the idols of Babylon, and her whole land will be put to shame, and all her slain will fall in her midst. Then heaven and earth and all that is in them will shout for joy over Babylon, for the destroyers will come to her from the north, declares the Lord Yahovah (Jeremiah 51:6, 51:45-48; Revelation 18:4).

To give further proof of the truth, the Lord led me to find links to the numbers 43 and 44, much like with other numbers I talked about before.

To affirm how 43 and 44 go with not living by God’s ways, so that judgment and curses come, I found the following:
  • The already mentioned 4.3 million Ukrainian children displaced in the war
  • 4.3 million children and young people were trapped in poverty in the U.K. in 2021[2.5]
  • 4.3 million people in the U.K. had food insecurity over a period of six months[2.9]
  • 4.3 million people were referred to mental health services in England in 2021[2.6]
  • 43% or 4.3 million working Michigan households struggle to afford necessities, like housing, childcare, food, healthcare, and transportation[2.7]
  • A study estimated 4.3 million children would be lifted out of poverty with a child tax credit[2.8]. This might look like monetary aid alone would help people, but the Lord is not pointing to worldly help. The 43 here is noting how worldly focuses (bread alone) will not fix problems that are coming from living in sin.
  • 4.3 million people in Chad had dire need of aid for hunger, displacement, and disease in 2019[2.10]
  • The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) originally wanted to protect 43 million people with disabilities from discrimination[2.11]
  • 43 million Americans struggled with mental illness in 2018[2.12]
  • 43 million Americans have medical debt at the beginning of 2022[2.13]
  • 4.3 million workers left the American workforce in 2021[2.19] and 4.3 million workers quit their jobs in January 2022[2.20]. These links show job and worker losses from God’s judgment with the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as for unrighteous and greedy corporate owners and management, which is also shown with Amazon spending $4.3 million on anti-union consultants in an effort to keep their workers from unionizing because of unsatisfactory work conditions and pay[2.21]
  • In the recent United States baby formula shortage, stores stocked 43% less formula than usual[2.16] putting the health of infants at risk
  • Lakewood Church belonging to famous megachurch pastor, Joel Osteen, reported an average weekly congregation of 43,000[2.18]. This reference is in an article about theft of church funds and is further reinforcement that misusing God’s money is a sin of the Harlot Babylon
  • The Jews were enslaved in Egypt for 430 years (Exodus 12:40-41) as symbolism to being enslaved to sin, darkness, and the ways of the world
  • Do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God [with your sin], by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption (Ephesians 4:30)
  • "If the anointed priest sins so as to bring guilt on the people..." (Leviticus 4:3)
  • [Update 4/3/2023] - Elon Musk bought social media giant Twitter for $43 or $44 billion[3.1] - When I first wrote this update about a year ago, I noted Elon Musk buying Twitter had 43/44 links that should be included here, but I didn't fully understand the links so I waited to talk about it. It was months later that the Lord led me to see the purchase of Twitter was related to scripture about His people being "backsliding cows" - people who regress in their ways and turn away from God (Hosea 4:16), very similar to Ireland who had regressed away from God when they voted to take away the right to life for babies in the womb in 2018 and enacted law to make abortions easy to get.

    Before Elon Musk got Twitter, he talked about buying it so that he could champion absolute free speech on the platform[3.2], which I recognized as a very bad idea, because it would increase lies, false news, and other harmful content, such as hate speech and porn. However, after Musk got control of Twitter, he completely reorganized it, got rid of its human rights team[3.3], and hypocritically went about silencing journalists and others who opposed his views[3.4, 3.5].

    I found I was correct about Musk's free speech policy being bad when I noted much more pornographic smut being promoted on Twitter, as well as other unwanted solicitation. I was never a big fan of Twitter because teaching correctly cannot be done with only 2 or 3 sentence posts, but I had been on Twitter for ministry for some years, so I tolerated Elon Musk's new Twitter for a little while. That quickly changed, though, when the Lord moved me by the Spirit to completely leave Twitter. It obviously no longer has any value for the Lord to maintain a presence there. I suggest everyone do the same.

    What all this means related to God's 43/44 guidance is that a policy of overly generous free-speech opposes God. It also goes with the social media past-times of excessive posting for personal gratification, getting attention and fame, which was a sin God brought up in 383 guidance.
  • [Update 4/3/2023] Galaxy PBC J2333.9-2343 - In March 2023, I noticed reports of a supermassive black hole in a distant galaxy had shifted its radio wave jets to point directly at earth[3.6, 3.7]. This is already a very rare event, but when I noticed the galaxy was numbered PBC J2333.9-2343, with 43, 23, and 9 prominent, I knew it had to link to God's 43/44 guidance.

    9 is the number of Judgment, and years ago, the Lord had me understand the number 23 means opposition, which has much scripture linking to it, including scripture about "the carnal[/worldly] mind is enmity/hostility against God..." (Romans 8:7; see 23 in The Meaning of Numbers for the link to 23), which I talked about in this update originally (below). Together with 43, the 23 affirms the world's and His people's focuses are hostility against God - they give opposition (23) to God - and He moved a gigantic black hole 657 million light years away to point one of its radio jets directly at us[3.6]. God even restarted the black hole's jets recently, as astronomers noted it was silent and then observed the jets moved toward them[3.7].

    To put this in perspective, God timed His restarting and turning of the black hole 657 million years ago (in His Creation's timeline), so the light (radio waves, actually) coming to astronomers to see the jets start up and shift towards earth, had only just arrived last month.

    Plus, the radio jets of this black hole are 4 million light years long. Compare that to the whole width of our own galaxy, the Milky Way. It is huge in itself, 105,000 light years across with hundreds of billions of stars. The radio jets of the black hole are more than 38 times longer than our galaxy. God is shining a VERY big light on earth today to say the world and His people are coming to judgment for its opposition to Him.
  • [Update 4/6/2023] A 4 year-old & 30 year-old drowned within an hour in separate incidents in Israel just before Pesach/Passover 2023 began[3.8]. 4 & 30 = 430, so I quickly recognized this news as another of God's 43 signs to His people, this time, especially the Jews in Israel and everywhere, for they too are included in the Harlot Babylon. Jews need to heed what God is saying now more than ever. They are an entire age behind now that the Christian Gospel Age is coming to an end. I see many Jews hold onto the eternal promises of God for blessing and residence in the Promised Land of Israel, but they also do not see the whole picture about sin bringing judgment, and that not everyone will get to live in God's promises, even if they are sure, for many are for His people as a general entity, but sin takes away many of God's promises for individuals, communities, and even nations. Remember, not even Moses was allowed to live in God's promise of the Promised Land (Deuteronomy 3:23-27, 32:48-52), and all the Israelites were made to go back to the wilderness desert for 40 years when they went against God's plan to take the Promised Land (Numbers 13:1-14:45), and when priests and leaders, like King David, sinned they brought God's judgment on the nation (Leviticus 4:3; 1 Chronicles 21:1-30).

    Note, God put a 43 reference in the scripture I just referred and had already noted above. Leviticus 4:3 talks about the sin of a priest bringing guilt on the people.

  • 44 civilian bodies were uncovered in a building collapse after Russia attacked Odesa, Ukraine[2.17]
  • 44 million lives were saved by The Global Fund programs as of 2020[2.22]. This may seem like a link to the good 44 about listening to God, but it actually notes that people living in sin will suffer from severe diseases, like those addressed by The Global Fund, such as HIV/AIDs, tuberculosis, and malaria.
  • 44 million people were driven into poverty by food price hikes in 2011[2.23]
  • $44 million was spent by the CDC on America’s vaccine data system[2.24]. Reliance on science, like vaccines, instead of God and righteousness was highlighted as a sin in 383 guidance I talked about before.
There are quite a few links to poverty, illness, and curses here, and I found more that I didn’t list. These should be plenty of evidence to the effects of not living righteously as God wants, but instead only with bread or the ways of the world. Many links include children and to people having serious problems, like disabilities, disease, and mental illness, which God also connected to sin with the number 383 (see God’s Proof For Sin).

A skeptic might say that I’m simply cherry-picking anything I can find with these numbers, but I’m not going through many pages of search results to find these links. I only look at the first two or three pages of results, and I’m certain if you just pick a random number that God didn’t give any meaning to, you will not be able to find an overwhelming number of links that correlate to a single theme.

Examine all the links I’ve been sharing here and in previous posts to see how they are spread all over the world in hundreds and millions of people, and in the stars and universe, and even in scripture. There’s no way the Creator of all things is not responsible for this guidance. He is the Maker of all (Jeremiah 51:19).

I am also connecting things through God’s leanings and revelation by His Spirit, so I do not recommend anyone go and search for links without being led by the Lord. There’s danger of falling to the sin of divination when you start looking for guidance in physical things, like calendars, numeric charts, tarot cards, databases, AI technology, etc., and interpret with your own mind. This is done by fortune tellers, astrologists, diviners, and mediums who use astrology, numerology, and other means to divine information. God tells us to not consult such people (Isaiah 8:19).

Instead, we must go to the Lord, and the Lord’s servant must know how to let God interpret, for no prophecy, that is, to speak God’s thoughts, cannot be done through a person’s own interpretation or by human will. Interpretation belongs to the Lord through the Spirit acting in the person to speak for God (2 Peter 1:20-21; Genesis 40:8).

More proof that what I say is from the Lord comes from gematria for "carnal mind." These numbers come from the numeric value of words, which very much depends on the development of languages - something only God has precise control over. And I was guided to lookup values for "carnal mind," as well as each word individually.

I found "carnal mind" has an English Aik Bekar value of 44, and "carnal" equals 43 with two methods of calculation (one for Latin, a root language of English, and one for English). This goes with the bad meanings of 43 and 44 I've been talking about relating to not living by God's word and guidance, but on "bread alone" or the ways of the world and the carnal mind. And the carnal or worldly mind is enmity or hostility against God (Romans 8:6-8), which brings people to live in sin and subsequently come to get judgment and curses from it.
For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God. It is not subject to the law of God, and neither can it subject itself. So then they that [think by] the flesh cannot please God. (Romans 8:6-8)
When I was led to find links to the meaning of 43 and 44 that relate to judgment and curses coming on people for sin because of not truly following every word of God, I also felt there should be evidence of the good 44 about living on every word of God. What I found was surprising, as there was nothing to link people to doing what God wanted, EXCEPT for working on clean technology and climate change.

That shows how blind people are to their sins and that they only focus to change things they can see directly as problems, like the severe weather effects of climate change. People also don’t realize sin is related to environmental damage but that was also highlighted in God’s 383 guidance.

Here are the good 44 links I found related to clean tech:
  • The U.S. Department of Energy announced $44 million to develop sustainable, net-zero emissions technologies[2.25]
  • A firm invested $44 million for an electric vehicle testing facility in Michigan[2.26]
  • A Chan Zuckerberg foundation invested $44 million in climate change technology[2.27]
The last 44 link I will share does not show righteousness in people, but alludes to what I’ve been trying to do here and through many years of ministry – to prepare a People ready for the Lord by removing them from sin and false teaching, and to bring us to the place of safety and protection in these end times.

What did God give to support this? I found an article stating 44 million homes are at risk from wildfire and it gives recommendations to “fire adapt” homes or take measures to help protect communities from wildfire risk[2.28]. This is analogous to how I am giving God’s guidance to “fire adapt” anyone who would listen, so you may not share in the judgments that are happening. Fire adapting also links with how God will test all ministries with fire to show what sort of work it truly is. Most ministries will not survive this and many believers in them will only escape with their salvation in Christ (1 Corinthians 3:12-15).

Now I want to address something that may have brought people to reject the truth. Russia and Vladimir Putin are largely Eastern Orthodox Christian, just like Ukraine, except their population is not majority Christian, but closer to 50%[2.14, 2.15]. How can Russia, Putin, and Ukraine be fulfilling prophesies of judgment against the Harlot Babylon when all parties belong to the Harlot, who will be destroyed in the end?

Remember that the Harlot Babylon is defined by believers living in sin, so Russia, Putin, and Ukraine, all fit, as does most of the believing world does, because false gospels, false teaching, and sin are so widespread. Also remember that the church, Judaism, Islam, and other believing communities have belonged to the Harlot since the beginning of human history – she is the Mother of prostitutes and of the abominations of the earth (Revelation 17:5).

The Harlot Babylon has been killing the saints for many millennia, and will continue to until the end, as it says in Revelation, the saints asked, How long, O Lord, holy and true, will You refrain from judging and avenging our blood on those who live on the earth? (Revelation 6:10). And the Lord told them, They were to rest for a little while longer, until the number of their fellow servants and brothers and sisters who were to be killed even as they had been, was completed also (Revelation 6:11).

But how do we know it is the Harlot Babylon the saints are waiting vengeance for? Revelation 19 says, after God destroys the Harlot, the great prostitute who was corrupting the earth… He has avenged the blood of His bond-servants on her (Revelation 19:2).

So the saints, who are believers, have been getting killed by the Harlot Babylon, who are also believers, for a very long time. This was shown throughout Old Testament times when evil and corrupt Israelites killed the saints and prophets. It was shown through this age when the church did the same through inquisitions and witch hunts. And it has continued to happen today, through Islamic radicals killing Christians. And now most recently, it is shown through Russia attacking Ukraine.

But at the end of this age, all of the Harlot will be destroyed, which means Russia too will be destroyed, or at least her institutions and people in Harlotry, as well as Islam and all other corrupted religions. I’m afraid that won’t be until the Lord returns, because it will take the return of Christ to defeat the final antichrist, false prophet, and leaders of the nations and their armies allied with them (Revelation 19:11-21). Jerusalem will have fallen to them, as well, but then the Lord will stand on the Mount of Olives to fight for the remnant (Zechariah 14:1-4).

All this is to note, also, that the Day of the Lord has begun, the one that is dark and not light, like a man fled a lion and a bear met him, or went into a house and a snake bit him (Amos 5:19). Woe to those who long for the day of Yahovah. Terror and pit and snare confront you, inhabitant of the earth. For the windows of heaven are opened, and the foundations of the earth shake (Isaiah 24:17-18).

If you do not believe the Day of the Lord has begun, then know that the COVID-19 pandemic fulfilled Isaiah 24-26. I spoke of it when the pandemic began in 2020 (see COVID-19 update), and since then more of Isaiah and other Old Testament prophecy has been fulfilling.

These are hard realities and prophecies unfolding now, but the very end is still many years ahead. The Lord has lifted up a signal in the land and has blown a trumpet among the nations (Jeremiah 51:27) to give warning through this very serious teruah alarm with much time still for many more to heed and change, so it is not too late for you.

The Lord does promise help and protection for the faithful and righteous, so remain sober and continue to heed His voice in His anointed servants. God has given much to show the truth. Some of the more inspiring evidence I’ve not shared here, but if you want to see God’s complete character and how He shows His love for everyone to be saved and changed, then read about His promises of love and protection in this Valentine’s Day Countdown where the Lord gives assurance for hope at the end of this age.

Be blessed with faith and the will towards the righteousness of Mashiach Yeshua. Amen.

Last week, someone from Nigeria told me something “disturbing and surprising” happened related to God’s Alarm and leaving the Harlot Babylon. He said last Sunday, June 5th, there was a massacre at St. Francis Church in Owo, Nigeria, not far from his own church.

Gunmen killed 40 to 50 people during noon mass[4.1], but the incident in itself was not what surprised or disturbed this person. Nigeria has been prone to violence upon Christians for years, but for the most part, it happened very far from his area in the south, until now.

The disturbing and surprising thing he referred to was that the massacre happened soon after he asked the Lord to judge His people for their sins because he was disgusted by false teachings in the church. I told him it was a strong sign from the Lord to leave his church as I told him he should do some months ago, when the Lord gave him a clear sign during a church service that linked their church to the Harlot Babylon.

He told me when scripture was being read, he saw his Bible was open to Revelation 17 and 18, which talk about the Harlot. He read it and was surprised to see it talked about the Harlot’s desire for extravagant, excessive luxuries, and wondered what it meant.

Then soon, he heard the pastor tell the congregation what God told him was the theme of the year. He said God told him it was “extravagant blessings.” Fear covered him as he heard that, and afterwards, he felt intensely the unholy things being done and said in church.

When he told that to me a few months ago, I said God was telling him that his church truly was part of the Harlot Babylon (it is a denomination listed in Ministry Warnings), just as I have been saying in this thread, and he should leave to avoid being caught in the judgments coming upon the Harlot, as the Lord has been having me restate for His Alarm, Come out of her, [the Harlot Babylon], My people, so that you will not share in her sins (Revelation 18:4; Jeremiah 50:8-10, 51:49-50).

After I told this person to leave his church, he said he didn’t want to leave immediately because his family goes there and he didn’t want them to worry about his absence. I didn’t urge him any further to leave, but I asked the Lord to continue guiding him about his decision. Then last week, the Lord gave him that much more forceful urging to leave and he finally decided to go.

Now, I’m certain many of you are like this person, who are very reluctant to leave their church and people they care about, but what more should the Lord do to give you proof of the truth? May you be strengthened to also leave your churches and ministries that continue in Harlotry as I’ve been describing, and stop giving them support.

I know it is a hard decision to stop affiliation with people, family, and groups that you are fond of. I was faced with that decision many years ago, but I left promptly to remain loyal to the Lord. It doesn't mean you have to completely cut off everyone who remains in sin and Harlotry, but it does mean removing yourself from organizations, leaders, and ministers who refuse to change and to distance yourselves from others who are not involved in leadership.

I would urge all of you to do that, if you haven’t done so, or work to change your churches and ministries to come out of sin and false teaching as I have been teaching. Do not let fear keep you doing what is needed, because if you know my path with the Lord, you can see He did not leave me after I left the popular church. Instead, He remained faithful to keep, guide, and bless me through the years. Praise the Lord for His lovingkindness!

But if you remain where you are, then you are showing more loyalty to sin and darkness than for our one true God. That line will become more distinct as the days at the end of this age come to pass – for you will again see the distinction between the righteous and the wicked, and between those who serve the Lord Yahovah of hosts and those who do not. Surely, the day comes burning as a furnace, and all the arrogant and unrighteous will be stubble, but for you who revere the name of Yahovah of hosts, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings, and you will go out and frolic like well-fed calves. So remember the Law of Moses, the decrees and laws given at Horeb for all God’s people (Malachi 3:18, 4:1-2) – The Lord’s kingdom continues on His foundation of law and decree from the last age, and will continue straight into the next age, so you who have escaped the sword, leave Babylon and do not linger. Remember the ways of Yahovah, your God, and call to mind His Jerusalem of this age and the next (Jeremiah 51:50).

Update - There's Time To Act 11/6/2022
Every day the news reports more proof of God’s judgment upon the world during the Day of the Lord, which I said before had begun, when tribulation after tribulation comes upon the people of the world. Families continue to lament the troubles of the times, such as increase in diseases, like the recent surging of RSV, flu, and continued COVID-19 mutations.

I’ve heard parents and health care professionals cry over their infants and children. Some say they feel helpless , “I can’t do anything.”

But I write today to say that is not true. It is only hopeless for those who already have fallen. The living have time yet to act. All the laments over children and loved ones should remind everyone of God’s words I have repeated in this thread for God’s Alarm - because of their sins and refusal to listen to His counsel given by His anointed, He said, So you will stumble by day and the prophet will also stumble with you by night, and I will destroy your Mother. My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. I also will reject you from being My priest, since you have forgotten the law of your God, I will also forget your children (Hosea 4:5-6).

Of these words coming to pass, I have given much proof in previous updates. All peoples of the world are under God’s judgments. You can see it through so many reports of increased illness, depression, suicide, addiction, crime, and disaster. And you should not be remiss to see that Christians and other believing peoples are falling under the troubles of the day.

Shouldn’t you be asking why? Why are people of God falling? Shouldn’t at least the living in Christ – those reborn in the Faith – be protected and saved in these times? Aren’t we all separate from those who Yeshua said were dead when He said, Follow Me, and let the dead bury their own dead? (Matthew 8:22)

But today, you can see the faithful, too, are not protected. They’re not part of the Bride, the People of God, who have the wings of an eagle, so that she would be protected in the end times (Revelation 12:6, 12:14).

Yet, much of the church and other peoples of God erroneously still believe they are protected from the Tribulation and that she does have those wings of an eagle. No one can snatch me out of God’s hands (John 10:28-29), they say.

But don’t you know that promise of Yeshua refers to eternal salvation for the next life? And yet still, only for those who remain in His New Covenant when they die. It does not apply to temporal salvation in this life.

This whole thread for God’s Alarm made it a major point that God’s people are dying now and that the great majority of the church and other believing communities are part of that Harlot Babylon. The Lord has been urging you all out of her, for she is the Mother He said will be destroyed in Hosea 4. She is the same Mother of prostitutes and of abominations of the earth who will be destroyed in these end days (Revelation 17:1-18:24).

God has shown the truth throughout this thread, but still, most believers do not see it or do not want to see it. Their loyalty remains in lies, false teachings, and the imposter Baals who hold them captive. But to you, may you not be so hardened.

You and your loved ones can still be protected from the great troubles you see unfolding before you. But you need to acknowledge that your beliefs may be wrong and it really is as God says, My people have become lost sheep. Their shepherds have led them astray (Jeremiah 50:6).

You need to truly leave the Harlot Babylon and her ways – all the ways and false teachings that have God’s people and the world living in sin. I talked much about that in this thread. What happened to Ukraine under Russian war this year is God’s stern example of what happens to those who remain in the Harlot Babylon.

But to you, may you heed God’s many warnings. You can still attain the wings of the protected Bride. Some have said the wings in Revelation 12 represent the Old and New Testaments - God’s laws and God’s grace in Christ, and the church must use them to fly to that place of protection – they must obey God’s commands and be saved in Christ.

But this is not the correct picture of how God saves the protected Bride in these end times. If you read Revelation 12 completely, you see that the unprotected Church continues to be persecuted by the devil; he will make war with her as stated in Revelation 12:17, and that part of the church DOES keep the commandments of God and holds to the testimony of Yeshua (Revelation 12:17) – the supposed wings of the protected Bride. That contradicts what some are saying about the wings and being protected in these times.

Simply keeping God’s commands and having faith in Christ is not sufficient. The Lord has guided me that the unprotected Bride whom the devil attacks in the end times, that time, times, and half a time (Revelation 12:14), will face the worse Tribulations that come with the final antichrist.

What is different about the Bride with eagle’s wings that has her safe while other believers are not, even those who keep God’s commands and hold to faith in Christ?

The Lord guided me on the wings of the Bride with the help of His guidance in numbers and guidance to a family I connected with this year. If you are familiar with my teachings, you might know how the Lord guided me years ago that the number 2 represents “love and charity” and how the triplicate 222 connects scripture with what true love or full love means to God.

The first time the triplicate, 222, appears in the Bible – Genesis 2:22 - is where God makes Havah (Eve) to be a wife and companion for Adam. This shows God’s unconditional love for us since Adam did nothing to get Eve as a wife and partner. God saw he shouldn’t be alone and made Eve to be his partner (Genesis 2:18-24).

The next time the 222 triplicate appears in the Bible is Genesis 22:2. That verse connects with the meaning of 2 with love as the very first use of the word, love, in scripture. But there’s even more detail in what the verse is about. Full Love from God is shown in Genesis 2:22, while Full Love for God is shown in Genesis 22:2.

That verse is where God tells Abraham to sacrifice his only son, Isaac, which he did try to do obediently and with faith, knowing God could resurrect Isaac (Hebrews 11:19). God is showing in this 222 encoding what True Love or Full Love for God includes - to obey His commands. God didn't really want Isaac killed, but was testing Abraham's faith and fear of Him. Abraham was found righteous in trying to follow through with God's command. God stopped Abraham before he could sacrifice Isaac and said, "Now I know that you fear God, because you have not withheld from Me your son, your only son" (Genesis 22:12).

That response tells us what a good and healthy way of looking at God is - to fear Him, so that we obey His commands and keep from sin - because God will judge everyone's sin. This isn't groveling fear in the face of malevolence, but a reverence of God and respect that He is Judge and will bring judgment for sin.

A healthy fear for God is good because it is for the greater good that He doesn't want us to sin. It harms more than just ourselves. He wants us to think seriously about what we do and keep from sinning, since judgment can harm our families, communities, institutions, and nations.

God said He punishes our children and descendants for what we do wrong through generational curses (Exodus 20:5, 34:6-7; Leviticus 26:22, 26:39; Numbers 14:18, 16:25-35; Deuteronomy 5:9, 23:2, 28:18; Joshua 7:24-26; 2 Chronicles 29:6-9; Jeremiah 2:9, 9:16 32:18, 36:31; Lamentations 5:7; Hosea 4:6; 2 Peter 2:14), the sins of leaders and priests can bring judgment on the people (Leviticus 4:3; Numbers 13:1-14:45; 2 Samuel 24:1-25; 1 Chronicles 21:1-30), and today, I can see corrupt and sinning companies and organizations being judged as well.

So God encoded the meaning of the number triplicate, 222, in scripture with the meanings of Full Love from God (Genesis 2:22) and for God (Genesis 22:2). Skeptics might think this working of the number two with Love and scriptural numbering is simply coincidental. I know those feelings. Some things really are random, but think about what must work out for this alignment.

The chapters and verses from the original language manuscripts of the Bible have to exactly line up with what is spoken about in those verses. That cannot happen simply from random occurrence. It’s like finding two pieces of a perfectly heart-shaped stone in a bed of more than 5000 ordinary stones.

That analogy isn’t far off, because there are over 5000 Hebrew words and 564 lines (verses) from Genesis 2:22 to 22:2. If you still want to dismiss the alignment, you have to understand that adding or removing just one chapter (group of lines/verses) between Genesis 2 and 22 or one line at the beginning of Genesis 2 or 22 will throw off the alignment with Love.

There can be no coincidental alignment like that. Obviously, God “engineered” or premeditated this when these verses were written. Most people believe it was Moses that wrote the Old Testament Book of Genesis, but I’m willing to bet he did not know God’s meaning of the number two when he wrote it.

God gave Moses divine inspiration to write Genesis exactly as He wanted. This alignment is only one example of many I’ve seen that show how scripture is truly God-breathed or inspired by God, so that the multiple writers of the difference sections of the Bible wrote exactly what God wanted (2 Timothy 3:16), at least the words from the original writers of the Bible (not its many translations and interpretations).

Alignments like this are truly awe-inspiring things that give proof God and Christ are real. It was alignments like this that brought me to believe in Christ, and since I became a Christian, the Lord has given me so many of these alignments that the only other more concrete evidence for His existence is for Him to materialize before your eyes.

These miraculous alignments are not for me alone, though. I share them here to increase your faith. And I hope the testimony of the family I will share will build you up further in the truth.

Earlier this year, a believer told me about how her grandmother vowed to her unbelieving son before she died, that she would help his faith by giving him a message from heaven. The family believes she died at exactly 12:12, because the clock stopped working.

They thought it had become unplugged or there was a power outage, but it was a battery backed-up clock plugged into an outlet. Through the years they remembered grandma whenever 12:12 popped up, but they couldn’t see the message from heaven. Not until recently, because this 12:12 would only get its full meaning when a family member found me and what I knew about 222 and God’s love.

How does 12:12 connect with the 222’s I’ve been talking about? I did not realize it when she brought up the 12:12, but she said 12 is also a double of the 222 triplicate, because 12:12 is equal to 6+6 : 6+6, which is equal to 2+2+2 + 2+2+2 : 2+2+2 + 2+2+2, giving us 222+222:222+222; four 222’s.

Now you can see, with God’s help in stopping the clock and orchestrating scripture, this Christian grandmother’s message to help her unbelieving son into full faith (and God’s message to help everyone else too) is pointing to the proof in 222 that God and Christ are real. These many physical and real-world alignments cannot be faked. Who but God and our Lord in Mashiach Yeshua can control so many things, including the very words and numbering of scripture?

To you who cries, “I can’t do anything to help my loved ones,” I say it is not too late. Repent, turn away from sin, stop living as you commonly do, and stop trusting more in science and the world. Instead, start listening to and obeying God. Depend on Him through Christ instead, and ask for His forgiveness and help.

But that isn’t all or the complete picture of the wings of the protected Bride. I already said how simply obeying God’s commands or having faith in Christ is not what is different about the Bride with wings.

So to you believers who remain skeptical about what I teach and are unwilling to leave the common ways of the His people, I will repeat what needs to be done to get the protection of the Bride with eagle’s wings.
  1. You must leave the Harlot Babylon as she is defined in this thread. Do not be loyal anymore to false teachings, false gospels, or the churches, denominations, ministries, ministers, groups, and imposter spirits that keep promoting them. They are the foundations of the Beast the Harlot rides upon (Revelation 17:3). Many of these groups and teachers are listed in Ministry Warnings.

    Once you decide to leave these things, it is best to speak out in prayer to renounce allegiance and break curses from them. You may use the following prayer, “In the name of Mashiach Yeshua, I renounce all dark spiritualism, false gospels, false teachings, and all spirits attached to them. I break all curses from past pursuits of dark spiritualism, divination, false spiritual guidance, and from false gospels and teachings. Amen.” Please feel free to contact me if you need further help in prayers and breaking curses.

    You may have also noticed I use God's Hebrew names instead of Jesus and other names the church use. This too is important, because it will help remove you from loyalty to what is false and part of the Harlot Babylon. See The Actual Names of God and Christ for more.
  2. Keep public loyalty in God through Christ, especially through the conditions defined in the True Gospel.
  3. Leave behind more sin, like the less understood sins involving tithes, offerings, and vows. I cover that in Properly Handling God's Money.

    Sin about sex and marriage are others, which I talk about in Sex and Marriage - The Plain Truth. The world and even the church don't treat intimacy, sex, and marriage in the right ways, and so promiscuity, lust, sex abuse, and other sexual sins are common throughout the world, the church, and among God's people.

    More serious sins, like those that prevent people from getting into the kingdom of heaven, need to be left as well. I list them in The True Gospel and Imposters, such as abusive anger, murder, and even stealing and lying.

    The Lord also gave further proof of more sins in His 383 guidance.
Given these things, the wings of the protected Bride symbolize believers with further sanctification – those who exhibit more love and loyalty to our one true God and Savior in Mashiach Yeshua and not to the dark forces that define the Harlot Babylon and the Beast she rides upon.

Some may be shocked that their favorite church or ministry is part of the Harlot Babylon, but this was God’s plan from the beginning, for He prophesied through Jeremiah about the New Covenant Age, Behold, the days come, declares Yahovah, when I will sow the house of Israel and the house of Judah with the seed of man and with the seed of beast (Jeremiah 31:27).

The seed of man was God’s good seed from the Son of Man, Mashiach Yeshua, but the seed of beast is not speaking of animals in the kingdom of God. He speaks of the seeds of the devil, the tares or weeds in His kingdom, whom Christ said, Leave the weeds and allow them to grow together with the wheat until the harvest at the end of the age (Matthew 13:29-30, 13:36-39).

These seeds of beast sprouted into the weeds, the false teachers and prophets, in God’s kingdom, who belong to the Beast that the Harlot Babylon rides. The protected Bride with the wings of an eagle separates herself from those seeds and their fruits, for she recognizes and is loyal only to our true Lord and Savior in Mashiach Yeshua.

But how can it be that God Himself planted and made the Beast? God’s word speaks for itself. If you doubt the truth, then blame your teachers and priests who do not truly know God. He said long ago, I am the Lord Yahovah, the One forming light and creating darkness, causing well-being and creating disaster. I am Yahovah who does all these things (Isaiah 45:6-7).

The Lord creates all and has ultimate control of all, including Satan and demons, so even though not everything the forces of darkness do are His will, God still created them and allows darkness to reign as He sees fit, and that includes leaving them in His kingdom.

But that cannot remain the same for the next age, because a kingdom divided against itself cannot stand (Matthew 12:25; Mark 3:24; Luke 11:17). Even now, the Lord is gathering up the weeds in His kingdom to be burned, for it is at the end of the age and His angels have gone forth (Matthew 13:30, 13:39).

In the end, the Harlot Babylon will be destroyed (Revelation 18:1-2, 18:21-23) and Satan will be locked up to prevent his deception of mankind until the end of Christ’s Millennial Reign (Revelation 20:2-3, 20:7-8). Most works of the devil will be destroyed, as well, such as false teachings, false guidance, and other works and technology in the world, so that man will not continue to heed the voice of the enemy in those works. The Internet as it is will not survive, so do not be overly attached to the media and technology of today, but let the Lord destroy and change what He will. The world you know today cannot survive into the next age.

Instead, work to secure your place with Christ and be protected in these end times, so that you may enjoy the fruits of righteousness in God’s kingdom in this life as well as the next, when we will see the peace, prosperity, and joy of God reigning on the whole earth together, in Mashiach Yeshua. Amen.

God Testifies Against His People with Hosea 5/26/2023

I knew I needed to make this update months ago, but the Lord had me wait for the festival of Shavuot or Pentecost to release it. For like Apostle Peter proclaimed the Last Days had come at the very first Pentecost for the church (Acts 2:1-21), today I say this age of the Last Days is coming to its end. God has shown this repeatedly through all the guidance and evidence I’ve shared in God’s Alarm and other work at 3rdCompass.org – He has moved the earth to help the protected Bride (Revelation 12:16) as I explained in the first post, He has shown prophecy of Revelation to be fulfilling in our days now as I spoke of with the revelations in the Ukraine invasion, and He has shown much further Biblical prophecy to be fulfilling.

For this update, it was a few months ago when I was working on God's Names that I saw the Lord gave scriptural proof of what He showed me to be true many years ago - the church and other believing sects have Baal imposters of God taking over their lives. I first gave evidence of this years ago in testimony and teaching, yet the great majority who I tried to educate had dismissed the truth. It was a combination of denial and loyalty to false teachings and beliefs that makes most turn away from the truth and good teaching, which obviously the Lord knew would happen since ancient times.

He foresaw the need to put it in Biblical prophecy, not just to tell the truth of things but to move His people out of the Harlot Babylon and loyalty to what is false. I've seen too many believers refuse to take anything seriously unless it is spelled out clearly for them in scripture. But it was never the Lord's intent to make scripture plain and clear, and He certainly did not put everything in scripture. The prophets served God for decades individually, and hundreds of years collectively, yet how much of God's guidance to them was actually recorded in scripture?

I've seen too many in the church proclaim that the Bible has everything you need to know and will reject everything else, even God's live guidance that was given to anointed servants, such as what I share. So I will remind that the Bible did not record everything, nor does it have everything we need as a people of God.

What we need is God's guidance in entirety, which is not only in scripture. Didn't the Jews have the scriptures long before Christ came, yet they refused to acknowledge Him? They could not understand the scriptures correctly until the Lord revealed its true meanings, and so this mentality of having and knowing God by worldly interpretation alone continued into the New Testament Age.

The church teaches, you don't need any other teacher but the Lord, using scripture like, "As for you, the anointing which you received from [Christ] abided in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you, but as His anointing teaches you about all things, and is true and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you abide in Him" (1 John 2:27). And so the church runs with this single verse without keeping proper context and many immature preachers become arrogant, refusing correction even when it is shown to be directly from God.

Where did the brethren who the apostle John addressed that verse learn from first and continued to learn from? It was the apostles and not only from God’s Spirit or guidance given to them individually. Furthermore, this was at a time in the church when there was far less corruption and false guidance. In examining very early church viewpoints that came as early as 100 AD, only a generation or two after the first apostles died, I saw there was already false teaching taking over the church. Why should that be surprising when the apostles wrote about and tried to correct false teaching in the New Testament?

So be reminded, the Lord did not even give the first apostles all knowledge, for Paul said, "We know in part, and we prophesy in part... For now we see through a glass darkly... [until when that which is perfect is come, that is, when the Lord returns and we are transformed into our heavenly bodies]... then shall I know fully... So abide now in faith, hope, and charity" (1 Corinthians 13:9-13).

God meant His people to depend on a more complete picture that was given to many individuals. The whole Bible was written that way, and in the New Testament Age, this never changed, not for the first apostles nor anyone else, so be humble and not deceived to think you should say, "I don't need you," as I've seen many do to the guidance I've shared.

Throughout my life as a minister, too much of the brethren, especially other ministers, assume they have no error and that I do not know what I’m talking about, so they don’t even look at the details of what I share even if I give scripture that directly refutes them. How regretful this is. Truly, it is for reason the Lord complains that His people are obstinate and stiff-necked, even today, with ears always resisting the Holy Spirit, just as the forefathers did (Acts 7:51; Deuteronomy 9:6, 9:13; Nehemiah 9:16-17, 9:29; Jeremiah 5:23, 6:28, 7:24, 9:14, 13:10; Ezekiel 3:7; Hosea 4:16; Zechariah 7:11-12; Romans 2:5).

Remember that "God has arranged the parts [of the body of the brethren... just as He desired... There are many parts but one body. And the eye cannot say to the hand, 'I have no need of you' or again, the head to the feet, 'I have no need of you.' On the contrary, it is much truer that the parts of the body which seem to be weaker are necessary, as are those parts of the body which we consider less honorable" (1 Corinthians 12:18-23).

So heed the Lord, "Know that man shall not live on bread alone, but shall live on everything that comes out of the mouth of the Lord Yahovah" (Deuteronomy 8:3; Matthew 4:4), and understand God speaks outside of scripture and most often through His anointed servants. In that role the Lord anointed me, just as He did the prophet Jeremiah, so let us consider the Lord's prophecies through Hosea, which He pointed out to me needed to be explained and added to the context of His Alarm to leave the Harlot Babylon.

In February, I posted an update to the testimonies that prove the Baals are still controlling believers. I talked about God’s proof in Hosea 2 for the People’s idolatry to today’s Baals. I also said it is prophecy still unfolding for today, which would need further discussion. When I reviewed the whole book of Hosea for this update, though, I saw I would have to talk about the whole book of Hosea.

It all goes with Hosea 2 and speaks of parallel prophecy that refers to both the ancient kingdom of Israel and today’s kingdom of God. We will see the details of this as we go along, but for the jaded who do not believe I speak the truth or teach correctly that Hosea is for today’s People of God, I will quickly say that Hosea 3:5 states, And they will come trembling to Yahovah and to His goodness in the last days, where obviously last days should be capitalized because it refers to this age – The Last Days – in which Peter proclaimed had begun on the first Pentecost for the church (Acts 2:14-17).

This update and the prophecy of Hosea reinforces other Old Testament prophecy that God already had me see and proclaim was fulfilled and is fulfilling now. I already referenced some verses in Hosea for God’s Alarm that are fulfilling today, and have also stated prophecy in Isaiah, Jeremiah, Amos, and Zechariah are also being fulfilled (see Prophecy Proclaimed and Fulfilled for more).

Anyone who takes the time to go through what I share should be able see it is God that speaks in all this, not me, for no human nor the devil can control all the physical evidences and signs God has given to support what I say. Yet even when I am explicit to say this and speak in the name of the Lord, I continually encounter scoffers and false teachers who refuse to even look at the Lord’s guidance and work. The Lord had me give very serious rebuke to some and publicly label them arrogant, lazy preachers; blind shepherds from a different fold, not anointed by the Lord.

What kind of teacher for the Lord are you if you refuse to even look at what is proclaimed to be from God? Are we not held responsible as teachers of the Lord to examine everything (1 Thessalonians 5:19-20), especially if it is proclaimed to be from the Lord, and are we not held to higher standards? (James 3:1) So I repeat what Paul told the brethren, Test yourselves to see if you are in the faith. Examine yourselves! Or do you not recognize that Yeshua Mashiach is in you – unless indeed you are unapproved? But I expect you will realize that I myself am not unapproved. For I cannot do anything against the truth, but for the truth. I pray that you become mature. May I not need to use severity in accordance with the authority the Lord gave me for building up and not tearing down (2 Corinthians 13:5-10).

After I have given public rebuke, some have prayed against me and the Lord’s work and even tried to give me over to Satan as the Lord had me do to the arrogant. But I repeat as I've said elsewhere, that I take seriously doing such a thing, and none of you who are inexperienced should do this unless you are certain it is the Lord that compels you and not the dark spiritual forces that have you blinded in lies and ignorance.

Now we'll go through Hosea and its proper translation and interpretation, and you will see that it is many of you and the church you remain loyal to what Hosea prophesied against. You are part of that Harlot Babylon, which the Lord made very clear in His Alarm, but because of continued arrogance and scoffing in His people, the Lord has me show His words through Hosea testify against the brethren.

Scripture is at left while my comments about it on the right.

Hosea 1
1 The word of Yahovah which came to Hosea the son of Beeri, during the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah, and during the days of Jeroboam the son of Joash, king of Israel.
The reign of these kings covers at least 38 years and Hosea’s prophecy was written sometime before Assyria destroyed the Northern Kingdom of Israel in about 722 BC[5.1].
2 When Yahovah first spoke through Hosea, Yahovah said to Hosea, “Go, take for yourself a wife inclined to infidelity and children of infidelity, for the land commits flagrant infidelity, abandoning Yahovah.”

3 So he went and took Gomer the daughter of Diblaim, and she conceived and bore him a son.
God made Hosea go through the same pains of betrayal He experiences with His people by having him take an unfaithful wife. Gomer symbolizes God’s unfaithful people.

God often has His prophets and disciples go through the same struggles and misery that He suffers. This brings a greater closeness and understanding of God and allows us to share in His sufferings (Romans 5:3-5, 8:16-18; 1 Peter 4:12-19; 2 Corinthians 1:3-10, 4:8-18, 6:4-10; Philippians 3:8-11; Colossians 1:24; also 2 Timothy 3:12).

4 And Yahovah said to him, “Name him Jezreel; for in just a little while I will punish the house of Jehu for the bloodshed of Jezreel, and I will put an end to the kingdom of the house of Israel.

5 On that day I will break the bow of Israel in the Valley of Jezreel.”
God wants Hosea’s first son named Jezreel, which means “God sows”[5.2], to go with making atonement for the land of Jezreel where Jehu was anointed king (2 Kings 9:1-13) of the Northern Kingdom of Israel about 100 years earlier. This was when Jezebel, wife of King Ahab, had killed almost all the prophets of God, so the Lord had Jehu kill her and everyone in the house of Ahab (2 Kings 9:7-37).

God says the house of Jehu will be punished, though, because He refers to the idolatry that his sons who reigned after him committed, bringing the people to also sin, which continued into Hosea’s time.

Hosea’s son, Jezreel, symbolized God atoning for the sins of the people that the kings in the line of Jehu fostered. This included Baal worship and other pagan worship that included sacrificing children, which goes with the bloodshed of Jezreel. It is for all this sin that the Lord will put an end to the Northern Kingdom of Israel.
6 Then she conceived again and gave birth to a daughter. And the Lord said to him, “Name her Lo-ruhamah, for I will no longer have mercy on the house of Israel, that I would ever forgive them.
God has Hosea name his daughter Lo-ruhamah, which means “no mercy”[5.3] because He will not have mercy on Israel for her sins. This goes with prophesying for today, because God will also not give mercy to believing communities that continue in the sins that have been outlined in God’s Alarm, especially those of remaining loyal to today’s Baals (imposters of God) and their false teachings.
7 But I will have mercy on the house of Judah and save them by Yahovah their God, and will not save them by bow, sword, battle, horses, or horsemen.”
God’s mercy will be on the house of Judah (the Southern Kingdom of Israel in Hosea's time), which was under King Hezekiah’s reign when the Northern Kingdom fell to Assyria.

Sennacherib, king of Assyria, moved to take the Southern Kingdom of Judah after Israel fell in the north (2 Kings 18:13). All the fortified cities of the Southern Kingdom fell, but Jerusalem, the capital still remained, and Hezekiah pleaded with God to save them (2 Kings 19:14-19).

And true to His word from Hosea here, God had mercy on the southern kingdom and saved them by His hand, not by battle. Because Sennacherib was arrogant about conquering many other kingdoms and blasphemed God, He sent an angel to kill 185,000 of his men which made him retreat and leave Jerusalem and the Southern Kingdom (2 Kings 19:32-37).
8 When she had weaned Lo-ruhamah, she conceived and gave birth to a son.

9 And the Lord said, “Name him Lo-ammi, because you are not My people, and I am not your God.”
God has Hosea name his third child, Lo-ammi, which means “not my people”[5.4], because he symbolized how the people turned away from God and worshipped other gods. Because they did this, God says, I am not your God, also goes with today because even though believers have God in mind in their spiritual lives, they are also loyal to the imposters and their false teachings, which is still idolatry and being unfaithful to our one true God.

I have been trying to make this clear in the last few years of ministry, especially after God gave much guidance and revelation to prove this truth.

The Northern Kingdom of Israel that God is prophesying against here is also called Ephraim in scripture, the tribe of Israel that lived in that area. God has guided me that today’s false prophets and teachers are part of this spiritual Ephraim and therefore, also analogous to the Northern Kingdom that is prophesied to be destroyed.
10 Yet the number of the children of Israel will be like the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured or counted. And in the place where it is said to them, “You are not My people,” It will be said to them, “You are the children of the living God.”
Despite God bringing judgment on Israel, their descendants will be uncountable, especially in the next age when Christ brings the New Covenant which adopts all who were not God’s people (gentiles not of the Jewish nation) into His kingdom as children of the Living God.

These words are repeated in the next chapter of Hosea, obviously going with the New Covenant Christian Age.

11 And the children of Judah and the children of Israel will be gathered together, and they will appoint for themselves one Head, and they will go up from the land, for the day of Jezreel will be great.
Under Christ, the kingdom of God is united, no longer north and south, and no longer Jew or Gentile, for in Mashiach Yeshua there is only one People under God (Romans 10:12-13; 1 Corinthians 12:12-26; Galatians 3:26-29; Ephesians 2:11-22, 3:6; Colossians 3:11; 1 Peter 2:9-10; also Romans 12:4-5).

Christ is the Head of all who believe in Him, and His believers have gone up from the land to the ends of the earth to proclaim His salvation. The Day of Jezreel (remember Jezreel means “God sows”) here refers to God sowing the earth with Christ, and goes back to Hosea’s son Jezreel representing atonement for sin on the land, for Christ atoned for all sin through His blood shed on the cross.
Hosea 2
1 Say to your brothers, “Ammi,” and to your sisters, “Ruhamah.”
God tells Hosea to speak to his “brothers and sisters” or rather his fellow male and female Hebrews, who called themselves Ammi which means “my people” and Ruhamah which means “having mercy.” These names obviously mean the opposite of what God told Hosea to call his son and daughter in Hosea 1:6 and 1:9.

They refer to how God’s people think of themselves – truly “God’s people” and “having mercy,” which goes more with this age than the time of Hosea because Christians have much more of a sense of having God’s mercy through Christ than the Jews did in Hosea’s time.

They were unfaithful to God and worshipped and depended on the Baals and not God, so this part of the prophesy also very much refers to today’s believers.
2 “Dispute with your mother, dispute, because she is not my wife, and I am not her Husband. But she must remove her infidelity from her face and her adultery from between her breasts.
The Lord has shown me that the people’s mother is the Harlot Babylon, which I first brought up in 2021 and explained more fully in the first post of God’s Alarm. Read this thread from the top to understand God’s definition of the Harlot more fully.

Here, God tells the people to dispute with the Harlot, their mother - the church and religious sects that are in their communities or lives.

But as God told Hosea to call his son Lo-ammi to represent the people not truly being His and said, I am not your God (Hosea 1:9), He repeats this truth here and says He is not their Husband. Their mother and they themselves are part of the Harlot Babylon, the churches and ministries that are loyal to imposter Baals and false teachings, and who took these imposters as their spiritual husband Baals. This hard truth is further affirmed later as we will see.

God is telling the people to acknowledge this and remove the sins that put her in the Harlot. I spoke of some of these sins in God’s Alarm already, and some major ones are the idolatry of being loyal to imposters of God and the saints and their false teachings – this infidelity must be removed from the people.
3 Otherwise, I will strip her naked and expose her as on the day she was born. I will also make her like a wilderness, make her like desert land, and put her to death with thirst.

4 Also, I will have no mercy on her children, because they are children of infidelity.
For those who do not acknowledge this and change, God will bring judgment on them and their families. I have already stated this many times in God’s Alarm, quoting what God said in Hosea 4.

Here I will note a verse more fully. God said, My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Since you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being My priest. Since you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children (Hosea 4:6).

In an update for God’s Alarm, I showed how God’s prophecies are already coming true with the war in Ukraine and how many atrocities are happening to children and families. I also showed that a large majority of Ukraine is in a sect of Christianity that is more clearly a part of the Harlot Babylon (the Orthodox Church), though most believers in Ukraine, even if not Orthodox, are also part of the Harlot.

Along with the prophecy of Hosea, it shows God’s words are true and are being fulfilled as we speak – God is stripping His people naked and having no mercy on their children.
5 For their mother has played the harlot. She who conceived them has acted shamefully. For she said, ‘I will go after my lovers, who give me my bread and my water, my wool and my flax, my oil and my drink.’
The church has been sinning for centuries and continues to, but the Lord told the saints to wait until the proper time for His judgment to come (Revelation 6:10-11). That time has only just begun, as all the tribulations that have been coming upon the world, especially in recent years, are only examples of much worse to come.

God’s servants have been giving warning for years now, but the people are stubborn and loyal to their “God” and ways. They continue to follow after their lovers, the Baal imposters of God and the saints and their loyal followers, who give them  blessings of abundance – their bread and water, wool, flax, oil, and drink.

But it is time now for this idolatry to end, for the Lord also said He will starve the Baals in more parallel prophecy for today from Zephaniah.

God said, I will eliminate the remnant of Baal from this place (Zephaniah 1:4) and Yahovah will starve all the gods of the earth and all the coastlands of the nations will bow down to Him, everyone from their own place (Zephaniah 2:11).

Lovers here also represent earthly help from others, like the northern kingdom tried to ally with Egypt to break free of Assyria.
6 Therefore, behold, I will obstruct her way with thorns. And I will build a stone wall against her so that she cannot find her paths.

7 And she will pursue her lovers, but she will not reach them. And she will seek them, but will not find them. Then she will say, ‘I will go back to my first Husband, because it was better for me then than now!’

“Yet she does not know that it was I myself who gave her the grain, the new wine, and the oil, and lavished on her silver and gold, which they used for Baal.
So God will bring thorns and make a wall so the Harlot cannot benefit from her lovers, the Baal imposters of God and the saints, as well as their followers. Elimination of worship of these imposters and of all other gods must happen for the next age. God will not tolerate it for Christ’s reign as the only King. The Baals and all other demons will be bound up for Christ’s thousand-year reign so they can no longer deceive mankind (Revelation 20:1-3).

When the Harlot cannot benefit from her imposters and false teachings anymore, she will try returning to our one true God, her first Husband, but she does not understand that even her blessings that she got through the imposters actually came from God, for He gave them their powers and reign, and so even in idolatry, the people’s blessings from imposters are the Lord’s will, so then still "everything comes from God" (1 Corinthians 11:12).

But the people used her rich abundance for their Baals, erecting lavish monuments, cathedrals, and statues for their false gods, like apparitions of Mother Mary and false-Christs.
9 Therefore, I will take back My grain at harvest time, and My new wine in its season. I will also take away My wool and My flax that I gave to cover her nakedness.
Because of her stubbornness and refusal of correction, God will also starve her and her ministries.
10 So now I will uncover her lewdness before the eyes of her lovers, and no one will rescue her from My hand.
The Lord has already uncovered the truth of the people’s idolatry in what I’ve shared about the imposters of God and the saints for years now. God’s judgment will come and no one can stop it.
11 I will also put an end to all her joy, her feasts, her new moons, her Sabbaths, and all her festivals.

12 And I will destroy her vines and fig trees, of which she said, ‘They are my rewards for which my lovers have given me.’ And I will turn them into a forest, and the animals of the field will devour them.
The Harlot’s joy, festivals, sabbaths, and solemn days will end, and God will let her riches and false-blessings of false guidance and teaching decay and return to the earth.
13 I will visit upon her the days of the Baals when she offered sacrifices to them and adorned herself with her nose ring and jewelry, and followed her lovers, so that she forgot Me,” declares Yahovah.
God has reminded the people today of the days long ago when she worshiped the ancient Baals and adorned herself to offer sacrifices to them, because He has proven they are doing the very same with today’s Baals by whom they forgot our one true God.
14 “Therefore, behold, I am going to persuade her; bring her into the wilderness, and speak kindly to her.

15 Then I will give her her vineyards from there, and the Valley of Achor as a door of hope. And she will respond there as in the days of her youth; As in the day when she went up from the land of Egypt.
God is persuading the righteous and faithful to leave the Baals and Harlot Babylon, so that they will be saved in these times, as I stated in God’s Alarm already. The Bride of Christ who gains the wings of an eagle to fly into the wilderness and be kept safe from the great tribulations that are coming is the one who acts in the greater righteousness of leaving the sins of the Harlot, especially loyalty to imposters of God and false teachings.

The Valley of Achor was where Joshua and the Jews killed and destroyed Achan, his family, and all he had, because they took plunder from Jericho which the Lord had declared off limits (Joshua 6:17-19, 7:1-26). Here, as well as in Isaiah 65:10, Achor represents a renewal from sin for those who acknowledge God and do what is right.

He will settle and bless them even after they've sinned, but acting in righteousness, like acknowledging God through Christ and turning away from sin is necessary. That goes with the theme of Hosea and Isaiah 65, where God says the blessings are, "For My people who seek Me. But for you who abandon Yahovah, who forget My holy mountain, who set a table for Fortune and who fill mixed wine for Destiny, I will destine you for the sword, and all of you will bow down to the slaughter, because you did not answer. I spoke, but you did not listen. Instead, you did evil in My sight and chose that which I did not delight" (Isaiah 65:10-12).

God speaks of Fortune and Destiny in Isaiah 65 as entities that the people worship and depend on rather than God, and so this also goes with the idolatry in Baal imposters that is the major theme of Hosea.

Here, God is speaking of this truth but many do not heed and instead remain in their idolatry and loyalty to imposter Baals and their false teachings. God's people must turn away from them to leave the Harlot Babylon.
16 And it will come about on that day,” declares Yahovah, “That you will call Me my Husband and no longer call Me my Baal.

17 For I will remove the names of the Baals from her mouth, so that they will no longer be mentioned by their names.
It will only be when that idolatry is left behind that the people can truly call God, my Husband, and no longer my Baal, which is sometimes translated as Baali, the Hebrew for my Baal. Because it is when they leave the imposters behind and the names of God they have taken over, like Jesus Christ, that the people will have life with God that does not go through the modern day Baals. This is why God says His people will no longer call Him my Baal and He will remove the names of the Baals from them.

These are the verses I noted that proves today's idolatry to the Baals, which I first brought up in God's Names and spoke of in an update to the Testimonies of the Baals.

God is removing the names these Baals use from the people’s mouth, which is one reason why the Lord had me write about His actual names and gave proof hidden in them that God and Christ are equal.

Of today’s times of woe, Zephaniah also prophesied God’s words, Therefore wait for Me, declares Yahovah. For the day when I rise up to prey. Indeed, My decision is to gather nations, to assemble kingdoms, to pour out on them My indignation, all My burning anger. For all the earth will be devoured by the fire of My zeal. For then I will restore to the peoples pure lips, so that all of them may call on the name of Yahovah; To serve Him shoulder to shoulder (Zephaniah 3:8-9).

Pure lips does not only mean a pure heart for God, but purity in addressing God truly, with no intercession of imposter spirits in between His people and God.

Zechariah also prophesied of the names of today’s Baals, ’And it will come about on that day,’ declares Yahovah of hosts, ‘that I will eliminate the names of the idols from the land, and they will no longer be remembered, and I will also remove the prophets and the unclean spirit from the land (Zechariah 13:3).

I first brought this up in The Lord said, Let no one argue where I also stated how other parts of Zechariah 13 had fulfilled and showed that today’s Christian teachers and prophets are the false prophets spoken of in Zechariah 13, as well as other Old Testament prophecy.
18 On that day I will also make a covenant for them with the animals of the field, the birds of the sky, and the crawling things of the ground. And I will eliminate the bow, the sword, and war from the land, and will let them lie down in safety.
This part of Hosea's prophecy is still unfulfilled, but its beginning refers to the time and place of peace and safety that God will nurture the protected Bride during the worst of the Tribulation; that time, times, and half a time (Revelation 12:14).

The rest of it will fulfill when the Lord returns and reigns. The earth will be in harmony with itself and mankind, and there will be no more war (Isaiah 2:4, 11:6-9, 65:25).
19 I will betroth you to Me forever. Yes, I will betroth you to Me in righteousness and in justice, in lovingkindness and in compassion.

20 And I will betroth you to Me in faithfulness. Then you will know Yahovah.
This refers to the part of the New Covenant that makes the Bride wed to Christ, who is called the Bridegroom. However, in this life, that betrothal is a “deposit” and only guaranteed if a believer keeps the terms of the New Covenant passing into the next life (see The True Gospel for more).

God’s betrothal to His people will be permanent when Christ returns and His believers are Raptured. This is when we will truly be with the Lord forever and have attained the eternal lovingkindness He promised through Christ (1 Thessalonians 4:17).
21 “And it will come about on that day that I will respond,” declares Yahovah. “I will respond to the heavens, and they will respond to the earth.

22 And the earth will respond to the grain, to the new wine, and to the oil, and they will respond to Jezreel.
This refers to blessings from God for believers of Christ who are righteous enough for their prayers to be given. But it refers even more to the next age when God will listen to and bless His people swiftly, where He says, It will also come to pass that before they call, I will answer; while they are still speaking, I will listen (Isaiah 65:24).
23 I will sow her for Myself in the land. I will also have mercy on her who had not obtained mercy, and I will say to those who were not My people, ‘You are My people!’ And they will say, ‘You are my God!’”
Apostle Paul quotes this verse in Romans 9:25-26 referring to the salvation of the gentiles or non-Jews by the New Covenant, which further affirms that Hosea is prophecy for this age and our times now.
Hosea 3
1 Then Yahovah said to me, “Go again, love a woman who is loved by her companion, yet is committing adultery, as Yahovah loves the children of Israel, though they turn to other gods and love raisin cakes.”

2 So I purchased her for myself for fifteen shekels of silver, and a homer and a half of barley.
Hosea and his wife, Gomer, at this point have strained relations and she apparently was not staying at home, but had prostituted herself and made herself a slave, which is why Hosea has to buy her back; half with silver and half with grain, which amounted to the slave price of 30 shekels.

This goes with God’s people doing the same – worshipping other gods and enslaving themselves to their ways and rule, just as today’s believers do with imposters of God.

Raisin cakes are mentioned here because they were used as offerings to other gods and the Baals of Hosea’s time[5.5].
3 Then I said to her, “You shall live with me for many days. You shall not play the harlot, nor shall you have another man; so I will also be toward you.”
Hosea tells Gomer she must stay with him and be faithful, so he would be faithful to her by not withholding his affection any longer. This goes with how God will treat His people, the Bride – if she becomes truly loyal to Him alone, not having any Baals or imposters of God in their lives, and removing serious sins, then He will be faithful to protect her as that protected Bride with the wings of an eagle.
4 For the children of Israel will live for many days without a king or leader, without sacrifice or memorial stone, and without a priest’s garments or household idols.
This refers to a long stage sometime after the last human king of the Jews died (Herod Agrippa or Herod II died in 44 AD[5.6]) until now, when the people have no earthly leader, yet they also go without making sacrifices or monuments to other gods, and do not put on the vestments or use household idols for other gods.

This specifically goes with the Jews being more loyal to God because pagan worship was largely done away with in the centuries leading up to Christ. It does not refer to Christians or other believers of Christ, since our King is Christ, and the church has made sacrifice, memorials, vestments, and idols to imposters, such as false-Christ spirits and false-Mother-Mary spirits – the Baals of this age.
5 Afterward the children of Israel will return and seek Yahovah their God and David their King, and they will come trembling to Yahovah and to His goodness in the last days.
This verse affirms again that the prophecy of Hosea also refers to this age, the Last Days. However, unlike the previous verse, this refers to all believers – Jews and Christians – coming to our one true God, Yahovah, and Mashiach Yeshua, the Christ, who reigns as King from the line of King David.

God’s people come trembling because of the tribulations that are happening now and because of the terrible truth that they have been in idolatry with the Baals of this age. Those who acknowledge this seek God’s forgiveness when they turn away from imposters and false teachings, and so will receive God’s goodness – His blessings and protections for these times.
Hosea 4
1 Listen to the word of Yahovah, you children of Israel, for Yahovah has a case against the inhabitants of the land, because there is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land.

There is swearing, deception, murder, stealing, and adultery. They employ violence, so that bloodshed follows bloodshed.
God continues His testimony against the people and gives further details of their unfaithfulness. They have no truth, mercy, nor knowledge of God, which goes with the prevalence of false teaching and the lies that come from the Baals and their false guidance.

Some translations use “faithfulness” instead of “truth,” which could be appropriate for the unfaithfulness of the people to God and the right ways, but truth is meant to go with what God is trying to convey in Hosea – the people are loyal to lies and what is false.

So they show no mercy, which is a problem for the Jews who are taught to take revenge – an eye for an eye (Leviticus 24:17-20), but it also goes with Christians who show no mercy despite the many teachings of Christ to not judge others (Matthew 7:1-5; Luke 6:37-38; 1 Corinthians 5:12-13; Romans 14:1-13) and to love everyone, including enemies, and to not take revenge (Matthew 5:44; Luke 6:27-28; Romans 12:14-21; Matthew 5:39; Luke 6:29; Romans 12:19).

Because of these things, the people of God have no true knowledge of Him, and the land is filled with cursing (both in swearing or cussing and in cursing others in spite – wishing harm on them), dishonesty, thieving, and violent bloodshed.

These sins are prevalent today and because the people, even those who proclaim to be God’s, seek revenge, retribution, and violence instead of peace, civil unrest and violent crimes have exploded in recent years. I spoke of these issues in the past.
3 Therefore the land mourns, and everyone who lives in it languishes. Along with the animals of the field and the birds of the sky, and even the fish of the sea disappear.
Because of so much sin in the world today, everyone languishes and depression and hopelessness has increased, especially since the COVID-19 pandemic began. Even animals everywhere are cursed, because sin is so great in the world.

Ecological disasters, massive die-offs like caused by red tide, increased species extinctions, loss of coral reefs, vastly diminished sea life, etc. are not just because of mankind’s poor management of natural resources, but are also judgment from God for the world’s sins.

This obviously goes with what is happening today and not in Hosea’s time or any time in the centuries and millennia after Hosea.
4 Let no one argue and let no one rebuke, for your people are like those who stand against a priest.

5 So you will fall in the day and the prophet also will fall with them in the night, and I will destroy your mother.
God gave me these verses when I had to rebuke stubborn and obstinate believers. It was guidance for me to stop trying to rebuke certain people, but obviously, the Lord continues to have me rebuke God’s people in general, who often scoff and treat me and God’s guidance with contempt, so this prophecy has fulfilled today as well – the people are like those who stand against a priest.

God again states that their mother, the Harlot Babylon, will be destroyed and they, along with their false prophets and teachers, will fall with her if they remain loyal to their institutions of false teachings and Baals.
6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge, because you have rejected knowledge, I will also reject you from being my priest. And since you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.
Because the people reject God’s knowledge and correction, they are destroyed for their sins, and God will remove them from ministering for Him. These are times when the Lord has no more patience for arrogant false teachers.

Tribulations have already come upon many of them, as I have proclaimed the Lord has already begun to send His angels to gather the tares or weeds in God’s kingdom who are burned at the end of this age (Matthew 13:39-40).

Because those who continue to sin and remain in the Harlot have also rejected God’s true ways, He will forget their children as well. I have emphasized this many times already, as it can be easily seen in this thread and in what is happening around the world, that children and families in believing and nonbelieving communities alike are suffering greatly in these times.
7 The more they multiplied, the more they sinned against Me, therefore I will change their glory into shame.
This multiplication of sin not only refers to more people in God’s communities, but also to the large increase of false doctrine in recent centuries by relatively new sects of Christianity, such as the Pentecostal and Charismatic Churches and Mormon Church. The more lies and false teaching they spread, which came from following their Baal imposters of God, the more the people have sinned against our one true God.
8 They feed on the sin of My people, and set their heart on wrongdoing.
Ministries and churches with serious false teachings are often greedy in benefiting from the lies they spread, such as found in Prosperity Gospel and Pentecostal ministries. Their teachings and ways have God’s people sin by having them rob God of His sacred money, such as tithes and offerings, that need to be handled with care. Instead of handling funds and ministry focuses with correct holiness and integrity, they misuse God’s money and often pocket it for their personal, selfish use. God guided me extensively on this topic.

These ministries that focus on generating income and overzealously protect their false teachings have set their hearts on sin. They’ve made a mockery of God’s kingdom with their shameless arguing, so the Lord has had me rebuke them.
9 And it will be, like people, like priest; So I will punish them for their ways and repay them for their deeds.

10 They will eat, but not have enough. They will play the harlot, but not increase, because they stopped giving heed to Yahovah.
Both ministry leaders and those who follow and support them will be judged for their ways. This judgment includes what has happened already and what will happen in the worse tribulations that are coming. Those who do not heed God’s warnings will no longer have abundance from their ministries and ways, because they do not heed God’s true voice.

This is another warning from the Lord to leave the Harlot Babylon and her ways, because the protected Bride will not remain loyal to the Harlot or what is false.
11 Unfaithfulness, wine, and new wine take away the understanding.
Unfaithfulness to God and loyalty to lies, imposters, and their false teachings has the people, false teachers and prophets, especially, blinded to the actual truth and good teaching.

They are cursed by the curse of false gospels and teachings that Paul warned of, But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be accursed! (Galatians 1:8-9).

The gospel Paul speaks of is not what most of the church believe in and teach, but what the Lord has also guided me to understand. Therefore, most ministries are cursed to be blinded by their false beliefs and false guidance that came from imposters of God and worldly thinking.

Their understanding of the truth was taken away, and many are so cursed that they cannot understand the actual truth and refuse to acknowledge scripture and good teaching that contradicts them.

The wine refers to spiritual teaching and guidance, both from God and false teaching from demons. And new wine refers to new believers these ministries have. They are all intoxicating and easy to become addicted to, which is one reason why many of these ministries are so fervent and overzealous to teach, get spiritual guidance, and evangelize. I have spoken of “prophetic gluttony” and becoming addicted to the spiritual guidance that imposters give.
12 My people consult their wooden idol, and their diviner’s wand informs them, for a spirit of infidelity has led them astray, and they have been unfaithful as the harlot, departing from their God.
Too much reliance on false guidance is why God speaks of the people consulting idols and using divination. They are led astray by real spirits of infidelity – the Baal imposters of God and the saints - who they regularly pray to and consult, and so they commit idolatry, are being unfaithful to God, and even sin with divination, which is something imposters of God often teach.
13 They offer sacrifices on the tops of the mountains and burn incense on the hills; Under oak, poplar, and terebinth, because their shade is pleasant. Therefore your daughters play the harlot, and your brides commit adultery.
Images of sacrifices on high places and under trees go back to the practices of worshipping the ancient Baals, so God is connecting the ancient gods with today’s Baals.
14 I will not punish your daughters when they play the harlot, or your brides when they commit adultery, because the men themselves slip away with the harlots and offer sacrifices with temple prostitutes; So the people without understanding are ruined.
God says He will not bring further judgment on the women who are unfaithful to God, because He will allow the men to be unfaithful to them. They will fall to fornication and adultery with other women and so bring judgment on God’s unfaithful women as well. Sex acts with temple prostitutes were part of pagan worship in the days of the ancient Baals, and today, sexual immorality and infidelity are common, even among God's people.

The people are brought to ruin by their infidelity, both to God and each other.
15 Though you, Israel, play the harlot, Judah must not become guilty. Also you are not to go to Gilgal, nor go up to Beth-aven and take the oath: “As Yahovah lives!”
God distinguishes between the north and south kingdoms because in the time of Hosea they were separate. However, remember the whole of Hosea also prophecies for God’s people in entirety today.

The Lord warns the southern kingdom of Judah to not sin as the north had and go to Gilgal or Beth-aven, which were sites that held rituals for other gods.

He warns not to vow in the Lord’s name in these places, which profanes His name by mixing them with worship and ritual for the Baals and idols.

However, Judah would not heed this warning in Hosea's time, because the southern kingdom would fall about 100 years after the north did. After Jerusalem, the capital of the southern kingdom, fell, Jeremiah fled with some survivors who stubbornly responded to God that they would continue to make sacrifices to other gods.

I spoke of this in God’s Names where He responded, Hear the word of Yahovah, all Judah who are living in the land of Egypt, ‘Behold, I have sworn by My great name,’ says Yahovah, ‘That My name will never be invoked again by the mouth of anyone of Judah in all the land of Egypt,’ saying, ‘As the Lord Yahovah lives’ (Jeremiah 44:26). This obviously also links to Hosea 4:15 and shows why God had knowledge of His true names.

Unfaithfulness to God was a reason why He removed the knowledge and use of His actual names from the people in the centuries after their exile in Babylon.
16 Since Israel is stubborn like a regressing cow, will Yahovah now pasture them like a lamb in a large field?

17 Ephraim is allied with idols. Leave him alone.
The northern kingdom, like many believing communities today, are stubborn and regress into ways that reject God. He refuses to nurture them any longer.

Ephraim is another name for the northern kingdom, which I said God guided me to see today’s false teachers and prophets are a part of the spiritual Ephraim. Though, God tried to correct them, they remain loyal to their Baals and false teachings as ancient Israel did, and so He will abandon them to their ways.
18 Their liquor is gone, they prostitute themselves continually. Their rulers dearly love shame.

19 The wind wraps them in its wings, and they will be ashamed because of their sacrifices.
God will take away their false teachings and guidance, for He will starve the Baals and gods of the world, as I noted for Hosea 2:6. Because they are allied with what is false, false teachers today continually go to their imposters for guidance and constantly argue shamelessly.

But when they can no longer benefit from their Baals and teachings and see the truth of their idolatry, they will be ashamed.
Hosea 5
1 Hear this, you priests! Pay attention, house of Israel! Listen, you of the house of the King! For the judgment applies to you, because you have been a trap at Mizpah, and a net spread out on Tabor.
This chapter affirms that God is actually speaking to all the priests and not just the ones in the northern kingdom of Israel, because Israel often refers to all of God’s people in scripture and in a few more verses, God also includes the southern kingdom of Judah in judgment. I capitalized King here to refer to God’s house in entirety – the whom that judgment applies to are the priests in the entire kingdom, and therefore, for today, this word applies to all ministers and teachers who teach lies and false doctrine.

Mizpah and Tabor are locations in the northern kingdom[5.7]. Mizpah likely refers to an area where the tribe of Benjamin settled in the north kingdom, which would go with Benjamin being mentioned later.

Tabor was a mountain in the Jezreel valley. Remember, God told Hosea to name his first son, Jezreel to represent atonement for the land, which would come in the form of judgment.

God says the ministers are a trap and net because they ensnare the people in lies, false teaching, and the influences of the Baal imposters of God. This goes with God calling other gods and the people that worship them, snares and traps to His people (Exodus 23:33, 34:12; Deuteronomy 7:16, 7:25; Joshua 23:13; Judges 2:3; Job 34:30; Psalm 106:34-36). God repeats this sentiment later in Hosea 9:8 where He says the false prophet is a snare in all his ways.

The snares and traps of false teachers and prophets also go with the snare of the devil, of which I have warned many that they are held captive by the devil to do his will in spreading lies and false teaching (2 Timothy 2:26).
2 And the revolters have gone deep in depravity, though I rebuke them all.
Yet, despite being given very clear and plain rebuke and truth of their status and condition, many of these false teachers are too stubborn and blind to acknowledge God’s correction, because they’ve gone too deep in the depravity of their ways and lies.
3 I know Ephraim, and Israel is not hidden from Me, because now, Ephraim, you have played the harlot, Israel is defiled.
What those in the northern kingdom do, as well as those in the spiritual Ephraim today who are loyal to lies and imposters, is not hidden from God. They are all unfaithful to Him and so the kingdom is defiled.
4 Their deeds will not allow them to return to their God, for a spirit of infidelity is within them, and they do not know Yahovah.

5 Moreover, the arrogance of Israel testifies against him, and Israel and Ephraim stumble in their wrongdoing. Judah has also stumbled with them.
Many I have given clear rebuke to absolutely refuse the truth and correction, and so their sins do not allow them to return to God. Their spirits of infidelity, their Baal imposters, are within them, so they do not know or understand our one true God.

Their own words, actions, and arrogance testify against them and they stumble in their sins. This also goes with how arrogant false teachers respond to God’s rebukes that use the truth and good teaching with His untainted and correctly handled scripture – the truth and God’s word clearly speak against them and what they say is true.

God says the southern kingdom of Judah is included in these sins, so all of God’s kingdom, then and today, are included in these rebukes.
6 They will go with their flocks and herds to seek Yahovah, but they will not find Him. He has withdrawn from them.
Obstinate false teachers and prophets will continue in their ways with those who follow them to seek God’s guidance, but He will not respond. He will stop trying to guide and correct those who remain loyal to what is false.

Their imposter Baals will respond to them for a time, but as said earlier, God will also prevent the people from getting help from their imposters as well (Hosea 2:6-7).
7 They have dealt treacherously with Yahovah, for they have given birth to illegitimate children. Now a month will devour them with their portion.
Those who are loyal to their imposters and false teachings and false guidance have become treasonous towards God, because they speak lies and the doctrines of demons in His name, and therefore have produced illegitimate children in God’s kingdom - products of the tares or weeds planted by the devil in the kingdom (Matthew 13:24-30, 13:36-43).

Paul spoke of these illegitimate children in the kingdom, those who are not truly of God, as ones who do not get God’s corrections towards removing sin and maturing in the knowledge of Christ (Hebrews 12:8). It is this spiritual sanctification and maturity that show God’s growth in people, and not great wealth or success.

Large congregations, megachurch facilities and large campuses, and great abundance and wealth in ministries speak nothing for being truly of God. How much and how large are the facilities of other religions that are not truly of God, like Islam and Buddhism?

Though they are run more by Satan and darkness than God, He made these institutions too, for He gives the devil reign and everything comes from God. He makes both the good and bad, the light and dark (Deuteronomy 32:39; 1 Samuel 2:5-7; Isaiah 45:7; Lamentations 3:38; Job 12:23; Jeremiah 31:28; Ecclesiastes 7:14; 2 Chronicles 25:8; Proverbs 22:2; Habakkuk 3:4-7).

But a time will come, a month, a relatively short period of time compared to the age, when God destroys their portion in the kingdom and on earth, for the Harlot Babylon will be destroyed in an hour and with great calamity, never to rise again (Revelation 18:10, 18:21).
8 Blow the horn in Gibeah, and the trumpet in Ramah. Sound an alarm at Beth-aven: “Behind you, Benjamin!”
The horn in Hebrew is a shofar or ram’s horn, which is often blown as a battle cry. It is blown in Gibeah, a city of the tribe of Benjamin (Judges 20:4), two miles north of Jerusalem in the territory of the north kingdom. The horn is also blown in Ramah in the northern kingdom, and Beth-aven[5.8], which was already mentioned in Hosea 4:15 as a place of pagan worship in the northern kingdom.

The horn’s battle cry is not blown by the tribe of Benjamin, though, but by God who is attacking them. The tribe of Benjamin settled in the northern kingdom (Joshua 18:11-20), but God is attacking the whole of His people today who remain in sin because Judah is included in this prophecy.

A cry of, Behind you, Benjamin! refers to the tribe of Benjamin being ambushed by all the other tribes when God united them to destroy the tribe of Benjamin for committing horrific sex crimes (Judges 20:1-48). All but a few hundred men were left of the tribe after the attack (more than 400 and less than 600; Judges 20:47, 21:12-14).
9 Ephraim will become a desolation in the day of rebuke. Among the tribes of Israel I make known what is sure.
God is making it known that He will destroy those who belong to the spiritual Ephraim today – those who remain loyal to the Harlot Babylon and her ways, just as He destroyed nearly all the tribe of Benjamin.
10 The leaders of Judah have become like those who move a boundary marker. On them I will pour out My anger like water.
Judah is mentioned for sinning as well, so again, all in God’s kingdom are being warned of God’s anger and judgment. Moving a boundary stone or marker is a sin and analogous to stealing a neighbor’s land (Deuteronomy 19:14, 27:17; Proverbs 22:28, 23:10-11). For teachers of false doctrine and guidance, this stealing of land goes with stealing the territory of God’s true and anointed servants.
11 Ephraim is oppressed, broken by judgment, because he was determined to follow man’s command.
Judgment comes to these false teachers because they are determined to follow in the commands and traditions of man instead of what is truly from God. However, these commands of man are also given and influenced by demons, the imposters that false teachers and prophets rely on, so this continues to include allegiance to the Baals.
12 Therefore I am like a moth to Ephraim, and like rottenness to the house of Judah.
God will be decay and destruction to both the northern and southern kingdoms – to everyone in the kingdom.
13 When Ephraim saw his sickness, and Judah his wound, Ephraim then went to Assyria, and sent word to King Jareb. But he could not heal you, or cure your wound.
After Assyria attacked the northern kingdom for the first time, King Menahem of Israel (reigned about 752-742 BC[5.9]) paid tribute to the king of Assyria (2 Kings 15:19) which gave them peace as a vassal state for some decades[5.1]. Assyrian records state King Menahem and a successor, King Hoshea, paid tribute to King Tiglath-Pileser III of Assyria[5.10], though the Bible names him as King Pul as the one getting tribute (2 Kings 15:19).

The name King Jareb used here is not likely the Assyrian king’s name but a title meaning Contender King or Contentious King[5.11; NASB].

However, despite giving tributes to appease and honor Assyria, the northern kingdom would not get permanent peace or cure. Assyria would take most of the northern kingdom’s territory in about 733 BC after Pekah murdered King Pekahiah (King Menahem’s son) for the throne of Israel (2 Kings 15:25).

Then Assyria would take the rest of the northern kingdom in about 722 BC because the king at the time, Hoshea, tried to conspire with Egypt to break free of Assyria’s rule (2 Kings 17:1-6).
14 For I will be like a lion to Ephraim and like a young lion to the house of Judah. I, yes I, will tear to pieces and go away, I will carry away, and there will be no one to rescue.

15 I will go away and return to My place until they acknowledge their guilt and seek My face. In their distress they will earnestly seek Me.
The northern kingdom fell and the people were exiled into Assyria because it was God’s judgment. Judah, the southern kingdom, is mentioned here as well, because they would be destroyed for the same sins (2 Kings 17:19), and today, this refers to all people who claim to be God’s.

The Lord will afflict and destroy, then leave them without help until they acknowledge their wrongs and seek Him. Today, it refers to seeking God in purity, apart from the imposter Baals and false teachings the people are loyal to.
Hosea 6
1 “Come, let’s return to Yahovah. For He has torn us, but He will heal us. He struck us, but He will bandage us.

2 He will revive us after two days. He will raise us up on the third day, that we may live before Him.

3 So let’s learn, let’s press on to know Yahovah. His going forth is as sure as the dawn. And He will come to us like the rain, as the spring rain waters the earth.”
This chapter continues the theme of God’s judgment from Hosea 5, but opens in a way that clearly refers to Christians. Though believers see God brings judgment on them, they keep faith and say God will renew them after two days, referring to the two partial days and nights that Christ was dead and in His tomb. And they say God will raise us on the third day, referring to Christ’s resurrection on the third day (see Holy Week for more about these two days and third day).

They say, they will learn more about our God, Yahovah, and believe He will restore them to health and prosperity despite their sins because they hold on to God’s faithfulness and promises, especially of salvation in Christ.

This attitude is common in the church, especially in Pentecostal circles, where they teach God will ALWAYS heal and give prosperity and wealth. But these are false teachings, because they omit and do not understand that God will ALWAYS judge sin as well.
4 What shall I do with you, Ephraim? What shall I do with you, Judah? For your loyalty is like a morning cloud, and like dew that is gone early.
Salvation in Christ never negated the consequences of sin in this life, but the church clings to lies and false teaching that came from false teachers who overly sweeten the truth. And so God shakes His head and proclaims that all His people (both Ephraim and Judah are addressed), have loyalty for God like the clouds and dew that disappear swiftly – they do not truly acknowledge or understand their sins and so keep loyal to their ways and not God’s
5 Therefore I have cut them to pieces by the prophets. I have slain them by the words of My mouth. And the judgments on you are like the light that goes forth.
So God brought judgment on them by His true prophets, both in Hosea’s time and today. He killed them by the words He had His prophets proclaim, which I stated I had done in an update to The Lord said, Let no one argue…
6 For I desired loyalty, [compassion and shame,] rather than sacrifice, and the understanding of God rather than burnt offerings.
God wants true loyalty to Him, for He says He is a Jealous God and His name is Jealous, so when people remain loyal to imposters and their false teachings, they are not being completely faithful to God.

God wants a people who have a true understanding (knowledge is used in many translations in Hosea 6:6) of Him, which is to understand and act in His commands in much more completeness, rather than simply showing up at church (giving burnt offerings) and fulfilling less important commands or unimportant commands and traditions of men while they neglect a true understanding of sin and removing it from their lives.

That was the rebuke God gave to the Jews here, as well as later during the time of Christ when He quoted this verse in Matthew 9 and 12 (Matthew 9:13, 12:7) - Instead of fulfilling ritual offerings that were less important, God wants His people to be loyal to Him alone and His commands as a whole (as idolatry and unfaithfulness to God was the biggest theme in Hosea).

This loyalty includes obeying many commands to love neighbors and judge righteously, so the Hebrew word, chesed ( חסד ), here can be translated as mercy or compassion, which some translations, like the KJV and NIV, prefer.

However, I translated chesed here primarily as loyalty instead of mercy, because loyalty or faithfulness to God is the main theme of this verse and surrounding verses, as well as the whole Book of Hosea, so loyalty is a more correct translation.

Chesed's other meanings as mercy or compassion and disgrace or shame[2.900.5.0.0] also have valid links to what God is saying here, so those meanings are added as paraphrasing in square brackets.

Mercy or compassion might also appear to be the only correct translation for chesed here, because Christ used a Greek word that only means mercy when He quoted Hosea 6:6 in the New Testament (or the apostle Matthew chose a Greek word that only means mercy when he recorded the spoken words of Yeshua, which very well could have been Hebrew since He spoke them to rebuke Jews; Matthew 9:13, 12:7).

For more about that, why shame should be included in understanding Hosea 6:6, and the New Testament quotes of Hosea 6:6, go here...
7 But like Adam they have violated the covenant. There they have dealt deceitfully with Me.

8 Gilead is a city of sinners, tracked with bloody footprints from deceit.
Like Adam, the people have been deceitful with God, for Adam tried to shift blame of the original sin to Havah (Eve; Genesis 3:12; see Did the church get Eve all wrong? for more about her name) when he was equally responsible as the gardener of Eden. He certainly should have known what the fruit of the forbidden trees looked like, yet he still ate.

So God’s people in Hosea’s time and today, too, do not truly acknowledge their accountability to sins, and many don’t give effort to change even though they get and see judgment upon them and their communities.

Gilead was an area east of the Jordan River where the tribes of Reuben, Gad, and the half-tribe of Manasseh (part of the tribe of Joseph; Ephraim was the other half-tribe of Joseph; Genesis 46:20) settled (Numbers 32:1-5, 32:33-42).

The Promised Land was on the west side of the Jordan, but before they crossed to conquer it, the tribes of Reuben and Gad wanted the land of Gilead because it was very good pasture land (Numbers 32:1-5).

Gilead was also part of the northern kingdom of Israel. The Assyrians would take Gilead from the northern kingdom under King Pekah between 733 BC when the Assyrians took most of Israel’s territory and 722 BC when the rest of the northern kingdom fell (2 Kings 15:29)[5.1, 5.9].
9 And as marauding raiders lie in wait for a person, so a band of priests murder on the way to Shechem. Certainly they have committed evil.

10 In the house of Israel I have seen a horrible thing. Ephraim’s infidelity is there. Israel has defiled itself.
Today, false teachers and prophets go about ministry to ambush other teachers and ministries that oppose them. They argue shamelessly, as I have said already, and sin by their contempt, unforgiveness, mocking, and endless arguing.

Shechem was a site that Abraham and Jacob visited and built altars for God (Genesis 12:6-7; 33:18-20), also east of the Jordan River in the area of Gilead. Here it represents churches and ministries in lies and idolatry, and so they defile God’s people, which was first stated in Hosea 5:3.
11 Also, Judah, there is a harvest appointed for you, when I bring back captivity to My people.
Many popular Bible translations incorrectly translate this verse to refer to renewal for God’s people (NASB, NIV, NASV, ESV, BSB, CEB, CJB, CEV, GW, HCSB, ICB, ISV, AKJV, TLB, NKJV, NLV, NLT, OJB, RSV, WEB), but this makes no sense in the context of what God is stating.

For some reason, translators interpreted the Hebrew word, shebooth (שבית ), as “fortune” when it means “captivity or captives,” which the KJV and some other translations interpret correctly.

God is stating that Judah too, the southern kingdom, with the northern kingdom will have judgment (harvest is a term used for judgment in scripture; Matthew 13:39; Revelation 14:15) and God will return His people to captivity, which refers to the future (in the time of Hosea) destructions of the northern and southern kingdoms and exile of the Jews in Assyria and Babylon.

For today, God says He will bring back this captivity, as well. God will have nations come against His people, like Assyria and Babylon did, and God’s people will be brought into exile and captivity. This has already started in Ukraine.
Hosea 7
1 When I would heal Israel, the sin of Ephraim is uncovered, as is the evil deeds of Samaria. For they practice deception, as the thief enters in, and the marauding band attacks outside.
The sins of the people are revealed when God tries to help and heal them. This happened many times when I tried to help false teachers leave their ways and understand scripture and the truth correctly. But because of their obstinate arrogance, they also often get rebuked and told plainly how they are allied with the devil and what is false.

They use lies, false teaching, and deceptive ways, such as I’ve seen by false teachers who explain their thinking, analysis, and logic. They make themselves appear very logical and knowledgeable by using what seems to be sound reasoning and Godly wisdom, but if they are examined closely, it can be shown they deceive themselves and the people to believe in lies and false teaching.

So the thief enters into their lives (the false teachers and prophets, as well as Satan). As in Hosea 6:9, they are referred to as marauders or raiders that attack other ministers.

Samaria held the capital of the northern kingdom of Israel[5.1], also known as Ephraim. Today, this territory refers to the false teachers and prophets in the spiritual Ephraim that are being rebuked and judged.
2 And they do not consider in their hearts that I remember all their wickedness. Now their deeds surround them. They are before My face.
Because of their arrogance and false teachings, they don’t believe God will judge their wrongs.

They think God only brings them good things, healing, and prosperity. But like the rest of the Harlot Babylon, their sins have piled high and trap them.

Remember the call from heaven, Come out of her, my people, so that you will not participate in the Harlot’s sins and receive any of her plagues. For her sins have piled up as high as heaven, and God has remembered her sins. Pay her back even as she has paid, and give back to her double according to her deeds. In the cup which she has mixed, mix twice as much for her. To the extent that she glorified herself and lived luxuriously, to the same extent give her torment and mourning, for she says in her heart, ‘I sit as a queen and I am not a widow, and will never see mourning.’ (Revelation 18:4-7).
3 With their wickedness they make the king happy, and the leaders with their lies.
Today, like in ancient times, false teachers and prophets are prominent in the circles of heads of state, and with their false teachings and false spiritual guidance, they deceive heads of state and other leaders to be at peace and positive about their positions.

This has not changed since the time of Hosea, for the prophets of Baal and other false prophets proclaimed victory and peace for the kingdom, when God told them they would be destroyed and exiled (Jeremiah 6:14-19, 8:10-22, 14:10-16, 23:16-22; Ezekiel 13:1-23; Micah 3:4-12).
4 They are all adulterers, like an oven heated by a baker, who stops stoking the fire from the time the dough is kneaded until it is risen.
Despite their proclamations, these false teachers are unfaithful to God and part of the Harlot Babylon. Their arrogance and so-called “divine” callings are heated and planned carefully to take effect.
5 A day of our king! Leaders will be sick with the fever of wine. He stretched out his hand with scoffers.

6 For their hearts are like an oven as they approach their plotting. Their anger smolders all night. In the morning it burns like flaming fire.

7 All of them are hot like an oven, and they consume their rulers. All their kings have fallen. None of them calls on Me.
They called out, “For our King! Our Leader! Our President!” in their poisoned fevers, joined with their scoffing and mocking spiritual leaders, they revolt. Their hearts remain heated, and their anger smolders the entire time, like the baker’s oven, as the day of their plans come.

My reference to leaders and presidents should be easily recognized, for the Lord has prophesied here what happened on January 6th, 2021 when former President Trump rallied his supporters with lies to violently revolt at the United States capital.

These revolts were repeated in 2022 in Germany and Brazil by people using the same kind of lies, false news, and conspiracy theories that Trump did[6.23.1, 6.24.1, 6.24.2].

All their kings have fallen refer to the leaders that instigate unjust coups and revolts. They all fall in sin, but not necessarily in their positions and power. Some like Donald Trump continue to have many supporters despite the truth and what is right testify against them.

In the time of Hosea, there were four violent coups in the northern kingdom (2 Kings 15:10, 15:14, 15:25, 15:30). Though Hosea worked during the reigns of the deposed kings, Zechariah, Shallum, Pekahiah, and Pekah (Jeroboam in Hosea 1:1 refers to Jeroboam II who preceded these kings), Hosea does not list those kings as ones he worked under.

Instead, he lists working under kings of Judah of the southern kingdom who reigned at the same time as and after the last kings of the northern kingdom, so he likely left the northern kingdom after the reign of Jeroboam.

Since we don’t know exactly when God gave Hosea the words of this book, which appear to have come over a period of years, since Hosea marries and has three children that God names, we can’t be certain that Hosea 7:5-7 foretells all the coups in Israel.

God does not prophesy after the fact in the sense of foretelling, but He can prophesy in the sense of speaking and summarize what the people have already done.

What is clear, though, is that God prophesied here of the insurrections that started with Donald Trump.

None of the fallen kings or leaders call on our true God, even if they are believers, most have imposters in their lives and are loyal to them and false teachings.
8 Ephraim is mixed with the nations. Ephraim has become a cake not turned over.
Those who God is rebuking, in today’s spiritual Ephraim, are not just a part of nations everywhere, but also hold to the values of those nations and not God’s values. They are a cake not turned over, overdone or burnt on the bottom and unbaked on the top[5.12], because they live by what is false and too many lies, instead of being well-balanced or baked properly.
9 Strangers devour his strength, yet he does not know it. Gray hairs also are sprinkled on him, yet he does not know it.
They will dwindle in power and vitality, though they cannot see it immediately. God will take away their prominence in the world and shut them from their imposter Baals and help, as spoken in Hosea 2:6-7 and 4:18.
10 Though the arrogance of Israel testifies against him, still they have not returned to Yahovah their God, nor have they sought Him, about the whole of this.
As in Hosea 5:5, their own words, actions, and arrogance testify against them, yet they still do not accept our true God, nor seek Him about the complete picture of what they were told in God’s corrections.
11 So Ephraim has become like a deceived dove, without understanding. They call to Egypt. They go to Assyria.
They remain loyal to their imposter Baals and false teachings, and so are deceived and blind. Instead of our true God, they go to the world and foreign nations for help.

God said they call to Egypt and Assyria, which refers to the northern kingdom of Israel trying to conspire with Egypt (2 Kings 17:1-6) and giving tribute to Assyria to try and keep the kingdom intact (2 Kings 15:19-20). This was mentioned in the notes for Hosea 5:13, but these acts would only give temporary peace.
12 When they go, I will spread My net over them. I will bring them down like birds of the sky. I will chastise them with proclamation to their assembly.
However, God is against them and he will trap and destroy them. That happened for the northern kingdom when Assyria took the remaining parts of the kingdom and exiled the people throughout Assyria (2 Kings 17:5-6).

Today, God’s chastising came when His corrections and rebukes were given to false teachers and their ministries in their public assemblies.
13 Woe to them, for they have strayed from Me! Destruction is theirs, for they have revolted against Me! I will redeem them, though they spoke lies against Me.
These false teachers and the people and leaders who follow them and what is false have strayed from God. They not only revolted against what is right but against God Himself, for He created lawful government authority for the greater good and tells us to honor it (2 Peter 2:13-17; Romans 13:1-7).

False teachers have also revolted against God by rejecting His corrections, guidance, and true words. Still, if they are saved by the New Covenant, God will redeem them in the next life, even though they speak falsehoods against Him.
14 And they do not cry to Me from their heart when they wail on their beds. For the sake of grain and new wine they assemble themselves. They turn against Me.
Their hearts are not truly for God, but for wealth and the intoxicating effects of getting new believers (new wine) into their congregations and ministries. It brings them pride and prestige, but when they reject what is truly from God, they turn against Him.
15 Although I trained and strengthened their arms, yet they devise evil against Me.
It was He that helped guide them in their lives and ministries, though much of it was indirect, because they followed their imposter Baals and false guidance more. And also, everything comes from God (1 Corinthians 11:12), and He allows demons to work in peoples’ lives as He sees fit.

Still, they do not recognize the complete picture and reject what is most directly from God and in their arrogance and loyalty to what is false, they make schemes against the truth and what is truly from God.
16 They turn, but not to the Most High. They are like a deceitful bow. Their leaders will fall by the sword because of the insolence of their tongue. This will be their ridicule in the land of Egypt.
They may make note of God’s rebukes to them, but they remain loyal to lies and imposters, and so do not truly turn to our God Most High. Today, they continue in attack and use deceptions to support their false teachings, but their leaders will fall with violence because of their arrogance.

Those who remain will only barely escape from God’s fire while their ministries burn (1 Corinthians 3:12-15). They will find shame, just as survivors from the fall of Jerusalem did when they fled to Egypt and continued to provoke God to anger, which was also prophesied about here – the leaders of the southern kingdom of Judah would fall about 100 years after the northern kingdom, and God sentenced the survivors who fled to Egypt to death for wanting to keep their vows to worship other gods instead of our God (Jeremiah 44:1-30).
Hosea 8
1 Put the trumpet to your mouth! Like an eagle against the house of Yahovah, because they have violated My covenant and revolted against My law.
God blows the battle shofar against His people, as in Hosea 5:8, and comes against them like an eagle, because of their unfaithfulness and sins.

Eagles often symbolize God’s judgment (Deuteronomy 28:49; Jeremiah 48:40, 49:22; Revelation 8:13), as well as God Himself (Exodus 19:4; Deuteronomy 32:11; Jeremiah 48:40, 49:22).
2 They will cry out to Me, “My God, we of Israel know You!”

3 Israel has rejected the good. The enemy will pursue him.
Like noted in Hosea 6:1-3, the people believe in God, but they did not do enough to avoid judgment.
4 They set up kings, but not by Me. They appointed officials, but I did not know it. With their silver and gold they made idols for themselves, so that they will be cut off.
This refers to the northern kingdom’s coups where they made kings that were not appointed by God, which I spoke of in Hosea 7:7. Today, it refers to unrighteous leaders and power usurping more lawful authority that God put in place, like gangs, criminal organizations, and corrupt military that have taken over large areas and whole countries, like in Mexico, Haiti, Latin and South America, Myanmar, and Africa.

In Hosea’s time, the people’s wealth going to idols refers to the carved images and statues they made for worship, which began in the northern kingdom by its first King Jeroboam about 200 hundred years before Hosea (1 Kings 12:28)[5.9].
5 He has rejected your calf, Samaria, saying, “My anger burns against them!” How long will they be incapable of innocence?

6 For from Israel, a craftsman made it, so it is not God. Surely, the calf of Samaria will be broken to pieces.
Here, God notes He rejected the calf idol they made in the capital of the northern kingdom, Samaria, and promises it will be destroyed.
7 For they will sow wind and they will harvest a storm. The standing grain has no growth. It yields no flour. If it were to yield, strangers would swallow it.
Today, like in ancient times, the false teachers and prophets – the tares or weeds in God’s kingdom – do not have or give spiritual growth into maturity that the truth and good teaching does. And so their planting does not produce the ears of wheat or grain that is threshed and ground into flour.
8 Israel will be swallowed up. They are now among the nations like a vessel in which no one delights.
Many translations use the past-tense for this and following verses, however the Hebrew clearly has future-tense, so I translate it that way. Translators likely tried to keep the tense of verses consistent throughout a chapter, so they opted to change what was actually written in the original characters of scripture.

God’s mixing of past, future, and present tense in scripture obviously confused translators, but He prophesies about the future, in this case, foretelling multiple instances of prophecy that apply to ancient Israel as well as today’s believers, and He talks about what people have done and are doing, so the Hebrew changes tense in confusing ways.
9 For they went up to Assyria, like a wild donkey all alone. Ephraim has hired loves.
God refers to the tributes the northern kingdom gave to Assyria again (first noted in Hosea 5:13). This time God says they did it like a lone wild horse, because they did not consult God. And they paid for loves, which refers to appeasing Assyria to keep the kingdom intact.
10 Even though they will hire allies among the nations, now, I will gather them up. And they will begin to diminish because of the burden of the king of princes.

11 Since Ephraim has multiplied altars for sin, they have become altars for sin.
However, despite their trying to stay in power with allies, God will bring them judgment and their strength and authority will dwindle, as noted for Hosea 2:6-7 and 7:9.

The northern kingdom diminishes because of the expensive tributes (the burden) Assyria took from them, so the king of princes or king of officials or leaders, refers to King Tiglath-pileser or King Pul of Assyria whom tribute was paid to (2 Kings 15:19, 15:29; see Hosea 5:13).
12 Though I will write for him a multitude of My instruction, they will regard them as a strange thing.
God sent rebuke to the people and false teachers to try and correct their understanding of His laws and scripture, but they rejected correction despite the huge amount of truth and correctly explained scripture given to them.

They could not understand it and deemed it strange or foreign, which also fulfilled Isaiah 28:11 when I tried to give correction. This was brought up for Hosea 4:8 as well.
13 As for My sacrificial offerings, they sacrifice the flesh and eat it, but Yahovah did not accept them. Now He will remember their guilt, and punish them for their sins. They will return to Egypt.
God is noting how false teachers and prophets ate what was offered to God in ancient times, which also goes with today’s ministers and ministries doing the same. They rob God of tithes and offerings, and use what is for the Lord for themselves, which was brought up for Hosea 4:8.

God will judge their sins and return them to Egypt, which refers to survivors fleeing to Egypt, mentioned for Hosea 7:16 and 9:3.

For today, returning to Egypt refers to false teachers remaining loyal to their teachings and ways which include being in spiritual slavery to their imposter Baals and their false teachings that enslave believers (see Light Within for more).

This also refers to believers today, fleeing from attacking nations as they did in ancient times. The war in Ukraine has already begun fulfilment of this prophecy for our times now.
14 For Israel will forget his Maker and build temples. And Judah has multiplied fortified cities, but I will send a fire on its cities, and it will consume its palatial buildings.
Believers everywhere are unfaithful to and forget the Lord, because they pursue greed, wealth, fame, and material things in their ministries (temples here), but they also do it in their everyday lives with the focuses and careers they pursue. Many make themselves idols in fame, such as actors and singers, and social media influencers.

Ministries and churches loyal to what is false have built multitudes of sites around the world, which they protect like medieval fortresses. The Vatican is only one example that uses armed guard instead of God to protect.

Fortified cities also refers to the spiritual principalities (Ephesians 6:12) that Satan has made with his deceptions – the spiritual strongholds in people and ministries. In this case, their strongholds are protected by the sins and very people the devil has chained with false teachings and lies by which they keep them in sin.

But whether physical or spiritual, God will test all of these strongholds with fire and reveal what sort of work they are, and many who built with what is false will lose everything but their own salvation in Christ (1 Corinthians 3:13-15).
Hosea 9
1 Do not be glad, Israel, towards joy like the nations! For you have been unfaithful as a harlot, going away from your God. You have loved the earnings of the prostitute on every threshing floor.
God tells His people to not rejoice like the nations who are ignorant of their sins, because He is telling them what they do wrong. They are unfaithful to God and are part of the Harlot Babylon, who loves the rewards of her ministries more than God.
2 Threshing floor and wine press will not feed them, and the new wine will fail her.
But as stated for Hosea 2:6-7, 4:18, 5:6, 7:9, and 8:10, God will make the unfaithful diminish and take away their abundance.
3 They will not remain in Yahovah’s land, but Ephraim will return to Egypt, and in Assyria they will eat unclean food.
This was fulfilled in ancient times when survivors fled to Egypt after the fall of Jerusalem, also mentioned for Hosea 4:15, 7:16, and 8:13. And before them, the northern kingdom was exiled in waves to Assyria (2 Kings 15:29, 17:6).

For today, returning to Egypt refers to the spiritual Egypt of slavery to false teachings and the imposter Baals, also mentioned for Hosea 8:13.
4 They will not pour out drink offerings of wine to Yahovah, nor will their sacrifices please Him. Their bread will be to them like mourners’ bread. All who eat it will be defiled, because their bread will be for themselves alone. It will not enter the house of Yahovah.
The survivors in Egypt did not want to honor God alone, as they wanted to keep their vows to worship other gods (Jeremiah 44:1-30), and so their offerings, like with bread, to God did not please Him, and are defiled because they also offered to the Baals and other gods.

Today, those who remain unfaithful to God despite their idolatry being shown to them, because they want to be loyal to false teachings and imposters, will not give offerings to God with purity. Their offerings, too, are defiled in the same way, and God will not be pleased with them.

And so, their offerings are for themselves alone because God rejects them.
5 What will you do on the day of the appointed festival, and on the day of the feast of Yahovah?

6 For behold, they are gone because of destruction. Egypt will gather them together. Memphis will bury them. Prickly weeds will take possession of their silver. Thorns will be in their tents.
Referring to coming judgment and destruction on the unfaithful, and God putting an end to their festivals as spoken in Hosea 2:11, God will have foreign nations gather them and they will die there (Memphis was a capital city of Egypt). In ancient times, many of the Jews who went to Egypt stayed there and made communities that remain there to this day.

However, for the unfaithful and harlotrous (individuals and ministries, alike), their wealth will be abandoned to nature, which also was spoken of in Hosea 2:12.

Thorns being in the people’s tents refers to having further hardship and judgment as they are exiled in tent communities. Again, this has already started for today with refugees in the Russia Ukraine War.
7 The days of judgment have come. The days of retribution have come. Israel will know it. The prophet is a fool, the inspired person is insane, because of the abundance of your wrongdoing, and because your hostility is great.

8 Ephraim was a watchman with my God, a prophet. Yet the snare of a bird catcher is in all his ways, and there is only hostility in the house of his gods.
God’s judgment has come today, and through seeing the people being killed and exiled, and through many proclamations by His servants, many of God’s people know the truth.

False prophets that were rebuked yet remain in their ways are foolish, and the inspired believers who say they have visions, dreams, and words from God, but are being deceived by the devil are insane and blinded by the curse of false teachings, as Paul stated those who preach what is false are accursed (Galatians 1:8-9).

Judgment comes because of the great amount of sin they participate in, which includes prophetic gluttony, the excessive and addicted pursuit of getting spiritual guidance, and of hostile and argumentative behavior in their ministries and the house of their gods.

I translate the second occurrence of the Hebrew word, elohim, in Hosea 9:8 as gods because it is clear the unfaithul are loyal to today’s Baal imposters of God. Elohim is translated as God in the first occurrence (see Elohim in God’s Names for more about this title).

God notes that Ephraim was (past-tense) a watchman for God, which refers to serving God as ministers. I see many false teachers and prophets proclaim being watchmen for God, but because of sin and the corruptions of false teachings and the Baal imposters of God, they are no longer true watchmen for the Lord, and as Hosea 4:5-6 and 5:1-15 say, God will remove them from ministering.
9 They are deeply corrupted as in the days of Gibeah. He will remember their guilt. He will punish their sins.
Gibeah is mentioned again, like in Hosea 5:8, it refers to the extremely corrupt sins of the tribe of Benjamin that brought judgment upon the whole tribe so that only a few hundred men remained (Judges 19:1-20:48).
10 I found Israel like grapes in the wilderness. I saw your forefathers as the earliest fruit on the fig tree in its first season. But they came to Baal-peor and devoted themselves to shame. And they became as detestable as that which they loved.
God saw the forefathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob (Israel), like an uncommon blessing in the wilderness. But God’s people, their descendants were unfaithful. Baal-peor refers to the time when the people followed the Baal of Peor during their wandering in the desert after God prevented them from going into the Promised Land (Numbers 25:1-9).
11 As for Ephraim, their glory will fly away like a bird, from birth, and from womb, and from conception.
Again, like in Hosea 2:6-7, 4:18, 5:6, 7:9, and 9:2, God says He will take away the wealth and prosperity of those who remain in the spiritual Ephraim, loyal to what is false.
12 Though they bring up their children, yet I will bereave them until not a person is left. Yes, woe to them indeed when I depart from them!
And like Hosea 2:4 and 4:6, God repeats, judgment will come on children and families.
13 Ephraim, who I saw like Tyre, is planted in a pasture, but Ephraim is going to bring out his children for slaughter.

14 Give to them, Yahovah. What will You give? Give them a miscarrying womb and dried-up breasts.
Tyre is mentioned here because it was a nearly impenetrable stronghold port city that was rich and settled on pleasant land, which links to the people’s fortresses of Hosea 8:14.

Still, God prophesied against this city, too (Isaiah 23:1-18), and it would be destroyed by the Assyrians, Nebuchadnezzar, and Alexander the Great[5.13].
15 All their evil is at Gilgal. Indeed, I came to hate them there. Because of the wickedness of their deeds I will drive them out of My house! I will no longer love them. All their leaders are obstinate.
First mentioned in Hosea 4:15, Gilgal turned into a place of pagan worship.
16 Ephraim is stricken, their root is dried up. They will produce no fruit. Even though they give birth to children, I will put to death the precious ones of their womb.
Again, like in Hosea 2:6-7, 4:18, 5:6, 7:9, 9:2, and 9:11, God affirms the unfaithful will be judged and have their wealth and abundance taken. Children here does not only refer to biological children as Hosea 2:4, 4:6, and 9:12 do, but also to products of their ministries.
17 My God will reject them because they have not listened to Him, and they will be wanderers among the nations.
Both the northern and southern kingdoms were exiled throughout the Assyrian and Babylonian/Persian kingdoms. Today, this has begun with the refugees of the Ukraine invasion.
Hosea 10
1 Israel is an empty vine. He produces fruit for himself. The more his fruit, the more altars he made. The richer his land, the better they made memorials.
God describes His unfaithful people as false or figuratively empty vines. The fruit they made was for themselves and their imposters, and not truly for God, which again goes with corrupt ministries pocketing God’s funds for their own personal use (also mentioned in Hosea 8:4).

The wealthier they got, the more altars and memorials they made for what is false.
2 Their heart is deceitful. Now they must suffer for their guilt. He will break down their altars and destroy their memorials.
But as noted many times already, God will judge them and destroy their works.
3 Surely now they will say, “We have no king, for we do not revere Yahovah. As for the king, what will he do for us?”

4 They speak mere words, with worthless oaths they make pledges, so judgment sprouts like poison in the furrows of the field.
In ancient times, when the people’s kings where brought down by Assyria and Babylon they would have said, “We no longer have a king because we did not fear Yahovah our God. The king couldn’t bring us any good anyways.” This refers to the people not really taking accountability for their sins, also mentioned for Hosea 6:7-8.

This is why God has said they turn back on their promises and speak worthless words. And so they sowed much judgment for themselves.
5 The inhabitants of Samaria will fear for the calf of Beth-aven. Indeed, its people will mourn for it, and the idolatrous priests who rejoiced in it, for its glory has left it.

6 The thing itself will be brought to Assyria as a gift to King Jareb. Ephraim will be seized with shame, and Israel will be ashamed of its own counsel.

7 Samaria will be destroyed with her king, like a broken twig on the surface of the water.
This calf idol is not the same one as mentioned in Hosea 8:5, which God said would be destroyed. There were at least two calf idols made when the first Jeroboam took the northern kingdom (1 Kings 12:28). Beth-aven was a site of idolatrous worship also mentioned in Hosea 4:15 and 5:8, but it was not the capital of the northern kingdom. That was in Samaria where there would have been another calf idol. Samaria, the center of rule for the northern kingdom fell, as noted for Hosea 5:13.
8 Also the high places of Aven, the sin of Israel, will be destroyed. Thorns and thistles will grow on their altars. And they will say to the mountains, “Cover us!” And to the hills, “Fall on us!”
Aven is a Hebrew word for wickedness, trouble, and idolatry[5.14], which obviously goes with Beth-Aven. God affirms again, like in Hosea 2:12 and 9:6, that the works of the unfaithful will return to nature.
9 Since the days of Gibeah you have sinned, Israel. There they stand! Will the battle against the sons of unrighteousness not overtake them in Gibeah?

10 When it is My desire, I will discipline them. And the peoples will be gathered against them when they are bound for their double guilt.
Gibeah was where the Benjamites committed the atrocity that made God gather the rest of the nation to nearly destroy all the tribe of Benjamin, also noted in Hosea 5:8 and 9:9.

Here, God does not only refer to the Assyrian and Babylonian nations gathering against His unfaithful people, but also today, many nations will gather against those who remain in the Harlot Babylon. As in ancient times, God’s people - the Harlot - will get a double portion of judgment (double guilt), which was mentioned for Hosea 7:2 referencing Revelation 18:6.

Why should the Harlot and God’s unfaithful get a double portion? It is because His people are held to higher standards and should know better, which is also affirmed in the New Testament (Hebrews 10:26-31; James 3:1; Luke 12:48).
11 And Ephraim is a trained heifer that loves to thresh, and I passed over her lovely neck. I will harness Ephraim, Judah will plow, Jacob will harrow for himself.

12 Sow for yourselves to righteousness. Harvest in accordance with kindness. Break up your uncultivated ground, for it is time to seek Yahovah until He comes and rains righteousness on you.
Even though His people sin much, God is gracious. He gives those who listen to His rebukes and correction a chance to change, so He prepares them to plow and harrow towards righteousness by giving them the guidance and instruction they need to leave sin, which has been a primary mission of the 3rd Compass ministry.
13 You have plowed wickedness, you have reaped injustice. You have eaten the fruit of lies. Because you trusted in your way, in your many warriors.
Judgment comes because the people believed in and became loyal to Baal imposters of God and their false teachings. They argued endlessly and shamelessly for their teachings, trusting in their own logic and ways, and their many false teachers and believers who support them.
14 An uproar will arise among your people, and all your fortresses will be destroyed, as Shalman destroyed Beth-arbel on the day of battle, when mothers were slaughtered with their children.

15 So it will be done to you at Bethel because of your great wickedness. At dawn the king of Israel will be completely destroyed.
These last verses refer to the last Assyrian attacks on the northern kingdom. King Shalmaneser of Assyria had attacked but was temporarily appeased with tribute from King Hoshea (2 Kings 17:2-3). The battle of Beth-arbel goes with King Shalmaneser’s first attack, however, like God said in Hosea 5:13, going to Assyria would not heal, so the peace was temporary.

King Hoshea conspired with Egypt which brought Assyria to take the last of the northern kingdom (2 Kings 17:4-6).

For today, God will destroy the Harlot Babylon (Revelation 17:1-19:2) of which Hosea also prophesies, which means all ministries and people and their products devoted to false teachings and the Baals of this age will be destroyed. And like in ancient times, the unrighteous will fall in Bethel, which means House of God, so it prophesies about God’s House, today, the Church and all other believing communities that claim to be God’s, such as the Jews and Muslims.
Hosea 11
1 When Israel was a youth I loved him, and out of Egypt I called My son.
God remembers His people with fondness when He first brought them out of Egypt. Though many had revolted against Him and Moses, they were like children and He nurtured them in the wilderness.
2 The more they called them, the more they went away from them. They kept sacrificing to the Baals and burning incense to idols.
In the times after taking the Promised Land, though, they often turned to Baal worship. The more they called to God’s prophets and judges (who are referred to in the following verse of Hosea 11:7) for help during the oppression of the Canaanites, Philistines, and other peoples they did not destroy in the Promised Land, the more they turned away from God.

Whenever God gave them a judge deliverer to free them from the foreign nations, they would have peace and freedom and be faithful to God for a time, but soon after the judge died, they returned to Baal worship (Judges 3:10-12, 3:15-8:33, 10:1-6, 13:1).
3 Yet it is I who taught Ephraim to walk, I took them in My arms, but they did not know that I healed them.
Now God speaks of Christ and His obstinate, unfaithful people – With the love, miracles of Christ and God’s promises in the New Covenant, He took His people and healed them, though many did not know it and rejected Him.
4 I pulled them along with rope of a man, with cords of love. And I became to them as one who lifts the yoke from around their cheeks, and I bent down and fed them.
The image is of the ropes and cords of a fisherman, an evangelist, and their nets (Matthew  4:18-21, 13:47; Mark 1:16-19; Luke 5:1-10) by which God offers His love and brings believers into the salvation of Christ and the New Covenant. By the laws of Christ, God lifted the heavy yoke of the Old Covenant or Law of Moses from His people. And by Christ and His disciples, God bends down to feed them, even literally, such as in the miracles of loaves and fish (Matthew 14:15-21, 15:32-38; Mark 6:33-44; Luke 9:12-17; John 6:1-14), and spiritually, through the teachings of Christ and His servants.
5 They will not return to the land of Egypt, and Assyria - he will be their king because they refused to return to Me.
God returns the focus to the times of ancient Israel, saying the northern kingdom would not go to Egypt for help, but would be exiled in Assyria.
6 And the sword will whirl against their cities, and will destroy their parts, and consume them, because of their counsels.
God repeats His message of judgment on them and all they have.
7 And My people are inclined to turn from Me. Though they call them to the One on high, none at all exalts Him.
The Hebrew word translated as inclined here means “to hang, hang to, cling to, habituate”[5.15], which refers to a inclination or disposition to “hang or cling” to a way of life or thinking. God's people preferred ways that betrayed Him, even though the prophets (they) called them to be faithful to God.
8 How can I give you up, Ephraim? How can I surrender you, Israel? How can I make you like Admah? How can I strike you like Zeboiim? My heart is turned over within Me. All My compassions yearn together.
Despite their sins, God is pained to give up on and destroy His people. Admah and Zeboiim were cities of the plain by Sodom and Gomorrah that God also destroyed (Genesis 10:19)[5.16].
9 I will not carry out My fierce anger. I will not return to destroy Ephraim. For I am God and not a man, the Holy One in your midst, and I will not come in wrath.
God relenting on destroying Ephraim does not apply to ancient Israel since the entire nation – both the northern and southern kingdoms were destroyed and the people exiled.

These verses refer to today’s spiritual Ephraim and the false teachers and their followers who repent of the truth of their idolatry and sins – God will have mercy on them, and as first stated in God’s Alarm, those who are sufficiently righteous will be protected in these times of tribulation (get the wings of an eagle and fly to safety; Revelation 12:14).
10 They will walk after Yahovah. He will roar like a lion. Indeed He will roar, and His children will tremble from the west.

11 They will tremble like birds from Egypt, and like doves from the land of Assyria. And I will settle them in their houses, declares Yahovah.
God will not destroy them if they leave the ways of the Harlot and walk after Him alone, without the imposter Baals and false teachings. God has roared like a lion in the many rebukes given to false teachers, and those who have seen it and the truth revealed to them tremble from the west, referring to the 3rd Compass ministry being based in the West (United States).

Like God’s holy Hebrew name, the Lord hid numbers in the 3rd Compass name to give more meaning. I found God inspired the name 3rd Compass to also equate to Him and even had my location in the United States embedded in the name (see Predestined for details), so this ministry and my rebukes as the Lord’s prophet fit with what Hosea prophesied here.

Some think Hosea 11:10-11 refers to the Jewish diaspora, the Jews displaced from the Promised Land all around the world, returning to Israel in ancient times and modern. They are called the Aliyah, which had many waves, and in some details they can fit Hosea 11:8-11.

However, migration of Jews back into the land of Israel happened from nations all over the world and not just from the west. So no events in Jewish or Christian history fit the sequence of God holding back judgement on His people and roaring so they tremble and revere or fear Him in the same detail as I described with rebuking false teachers.

The people trembling like birds from Egypt and Assyria today refer to their past histories in spiritual Egypt and Assyria – living in lives of slavery to Baals and false teachings and living in worldly ways. But in sparing the righteous from the judgment on the Harlot Babylon, God will bring them security and settle them in houses.
12 Ephraim surrounds Me with lies, and the house of Israel with deceit. Judah still wanders against God; Even against the Holy One who is faithful.
God shifts focus back to the unfaithful - people of the spiritual Ephraim who remain in the ways of the Harlot Babylon. This focus shift aligns with the same shift in Revelation 12, where God protects His Bride with wings, which enrages the devil, so he leaves her to make war with other believers in Christ who are not protected (Revelation 12:14-17) and who obviously go with the spiritual Ephraim here.

These focus shifts in prophecy from God further affirm what I had stated with God’s Alarm and protection for those who would leave the Harlot.
Hosea 12
1 Ephraim feeds on wind, and pursues the east wind continually. He multiplies lies and violence. And a pledge with Assyria he will make [but cut off], and oil is brought to Egypt.
Feeding on wind refers to accepting false teachings, which can change like wind, as opposed to good and true teaching from God, which does not change. Pursuing the east wind refers to false teachings from the East, Eastern spiritualism, which I have seen being used by many believers, and has corrupted some sects of Christianity (see Ministry Warnings for more).

The northern kingdom of Israel/Ephraim increased lies and violence, especially when King Hoshea of Israel pledged tribute to Assyria but then conspired with Egypt to be freed of the tribute obligation (to cut off the pledge; 2 Kings 17:1-6). The olive oil was likely payment to seal an alliance with Egypt to break free of Assyria.

However, when Assyria found out about this, they completely conquered the northern kingdom, which goes with multiplying violence.

Most popular translations incorrectly or incompletely translate the Hebrew word, karath, in Hosea 12:1, meaning “to cut, cut off, cut down, eliminate, kill, cut or make a covenant”[5.17], likely because God began the verse with present-tense but then switched to a future-tense with karath that used another modifier with past-tense or another future-tense (depending on verb usage).

Without knowing the context of how Ephraim (the northern kingdom of Israel) would break off a tribute pledge to Assyria, the word tense change may be confusing, but it goes with foretelling how King Hoshea of Israel would try to get rid of Assyria and the obligation to pay them tribute, which was later recorded in 2 Kings 17:3-4.

The Hebrew form of karath in Hosea 12:1 ( יכרתו ) literally reads "they/he-will cut/cut-make-covenant they-did/they-will" because karath is surrounded by a modifying prefix and suffix. This exact form of karath is usually translated, "will be cut off" (Psalm 37:22; Proverbs 2:22; Isaiah 11:13; Micah 5:9; Zechariah 13:8), but is also translated similarly to Hosea 12:1 in the second half of Psalm 83:5, which most translations say, "For they [foreign nations/peoples/enemies] have conspired together with one mind. They make a covenant/alliance against You" (Psalm 83:5).

Is that translation correct? Looking at the Hebrew for the second half of Psalm 83:5 ( עליך ברית יכרתו ), it reads, "upon/according-to/against-Your covenant/alliance/pledge they/he-will cut/cut-make-covenant they-did/they-will," in which the last word is the exact same form of karath used in Hosea 12:1.

The word form of "your" is also present which goes with the word for covenant (bereet/b'reet/brit), so a better translation of Psalm 83:5 is, "For they have conspired together with one mind. Against Your covenant they will cut." This translation refers to the covenant God made with His people and that enemy nations will try to break it - to destroy Israel, the nation that God made covenant with. This is in context with the verses surrounding Psalm 83:5 and is a more accurate translation of the ancient Hebrew.

Likewise, the translation of words surrounding karath in Hosea 12:1 I use here is more accurate and gives explanation that God is conveying the future cutting off of a pledge to Assyria to pay tribute through the multiple meanings of karath in both making a covenant (the pledge of tribute to Assyria) and its meaning in cutting off as well.

Many translations do not use future-tense with karath here, but there is definitely future-tense in its use. It is most accurate to translate this form of karath as "he/they will cut" or "he/they will be cutting" depending on perfect or imperfect verb use.
2 Yahovah also has a case against Judah, and will punish Jacob according to his ways. He will repay him according to his deeds.
Again, God includes the rest of the kingdom of God in judgment by including the southern kingdom of Judah.
3 In the womb he took his brother by the heel, and in his mature strength he contended with God.
This speaks of Jacob (who would later be renamed Israel) holding onto his twin brother’s heel at birth (Genesis 25:25-26), and his wrestling with God later in life (Genesis 32:24-28).
4 Yes, he wrestled with the angel and prevailed. He wept and resolutely sought His favor. He found Him at Bethel, and there He spoke with us.
The ark of the covenant was in Bethel in the days when the people gathered to attack the tribe of Benjamin, which was spoken of in Hosea 5:8, 9:9, and 10:9. They inquired of God there and He told them to keep fighting Benjamin (Judges 20:27-28).

For the theme of coming judgment, though, God also says those who repent of the sins that are bringing judgment, they should seek God with earnest resolve, like Jacob did.
5 And Yahovah, the God of hosts, Yahovah is His memorial.
And remember God’s true name, Yahovah ( יהוה ), for it is His memorial to His people.
6 So as for you, return to your God in faithfulness and justice, heed and wait for your God continually.
As for you, as opposed to Jacob, who was faithful to God, be loyal to Him alone, no longer with imposters or false teachings, and pursue what is right, and continue to listen to God’s true voice in His anointed and wait on Him.
7 A merchant, whose hands are deceitful balances, he loves to exploit.

8 And Ephraim said, “Surely, I am rich. I found wealth for myself. In all my labors they will find in me no wrongdoing, which would be sin.”

9 But I have been Yahovah your God since the land of Egypt. I will make you live in tents again, as in the days of the appointed festival.
God goes back to describing the ways and sins of His unfaithful and unrighteous people. They became rich from their pursuits, which certainly goes with prosperity ministries today, and they think nothing they did was wrong.

But they are wrong, for they rob God and are idolatrous, loyal to what is false. Teaching about the proper ways to handle God’s money is a major focus I have made, but the majority of the church does not heed or change.

Likewise, my testimonies of the imposter Baals today were largely dismissed for years, but God gave the truth in what I’ve been teaching and had backed it up with proof and scripture.

And now and recently, He backs the truth up with these revelations in Hosea and with God’s Names, so truly, the people are in great sin and in the Harlot Babylon. God will make His unrighteous people live in tents again as in the days of desert wilderness wandering. Like with other prophecy of judgment, this too fulfilled with the War in Ukraine where millions of refugees had to live in temporary encampments.

Major nations and believing communities who think themselves, like Ephraim here, saying, “I do no wrong,” will find their comfort and security taken.
10 I have also spoken by the prophets, and I gave many visions. And through the prophets spoke parables.
God did not bring judgment all of a sudden with no warnings. His servants have been working for decades to warn the people, with much guidance and unclear words (parables) from Him. But because there is so much false guidance as well, what is truly from God is lost in the noise.
11 Is there injustice in Gilead? Certainly they are worthless. In Gilgal they sacrifice bulls. Yes, their altars are like stone heaps in the furrows of a field.
And obstinate teachers who believe they have no fault, reject the truth and good teaching. They go about arguing for their false teachings and attack other ministries, so there is injustice in the kingdom, at Gilead, which was mentioned in Hosea 6:8-10 as representing the church and ministries.

Gilgal was mentioned in Hosea 4:15 and 9:15 as a place of pagan worship. The ministries of today’s spiritual Ephraim have thrown altars to their Baals among the plowed fields of God’s kingdom.
12 Now Jacob fled to the land of Aram, and Israel worked for a wife, and for a wife he kept sheep.
Jacob (Israel) fled his brother, Esau, to the land of his mother and father, Aram in Syria, where he worked for seven years as a shepherd to marry Rachel (Genesis 27:41-43, 29:1-20).

Jacob represents the righteous, faithful believer in much of this chapter, and so like him, the ones who would leave the Harlot and what is false, need to be as patient as Jacob. He ended up working 20 years in Aram (Genesis 31:38) before he ran away with his flocks and family.

God will not guide in clear ways, even to His true servants and prophets, today, so wait on the Lord as He said in Hosea 12:6 and live in greater righteousness as you are learning.

He is preparing that place in the wilderness where He will hide and protect His faithful in the worst times ahead (Revelation 12:6, 12:14).
13 And by a prophet Yahovah brought Israel up from Egypt. And by a prophet he was protected.
By Moses, God brought His people out of Egypt, and by him they were protected. It was not God alone or by other leaders among the people. God anointed Moses, specifically, and when others tried to usurp that authority, they were rebuked by God (Numbers 12:1-15, 16:1-49).

This also goes with my statements above about needing guidance from the Lord's anointed, so be attuned and do not reject them, as if the head could say to the feet, "I have no need of you" (1 Corinthians 12:21).
14 Ephraim has provoked to bitter anger. So his Lord will leave his blood upon him and bring his scorn back to him.
Like in Hosea 11:12, God shifts focus from righteous people who listen, back to the unfaithful. They provoked Him to anger and their mocking came back to them. This was fulfilled when arrogant false teachers mocked God’s guidance. Soon afterwards, the Spirit led me to hand these people over to Satan.
Hosea 13
1 When Ephraim spoke trembling, he exalted himself in Israel, but through Baal he incurred guilt and died.
Today, the false prophets and teachers speak trembling, because they were rebuked by God through His servants and prophets, yet they continue to be loyal to the imposter Baals and false teachings, and exalt themselves as servants of God.

In ancient times, this happened after Elijah confronted and killed the prophets of Baal on Mount Carmel, making the people choose between Yahovah God and the Baals and Asherah (1 Kings 18:17-40; Asherah were the female equivalents of the Baals), yet Jezebel, wife of King Ahab of Israel, was obstinate and put a death sentence on Elijah after she found out what he did (1 Kings 19:1-2).
2 And now they sin more and more, and make for themselves cast metal images, idols of silver made to their own understanding. All of them the work of craftsmen. They say of them, “Let the people who sacrifice kiss the calves!”
So even after God showed the truth and who His true servants were, His people kept sinning in the same ways. The time of Elijah was about 100 years before Hosea[5.9], so God was and remains true to His description of being slow to anger (Exodus 34:6; Numbers 14:18; Nehemiah 9:17; Psalm 86:15, 103:8, 145:8; Joel 2:13; Jonah 4:2; Nahum 1:3) – He let His people sin for centuries, then and in this age, before bringing judgment.

Kiss the calves – Today believers do the same with their idol statues of Christ, Mother Mary, the saints, etc. when the pay homage to them.
3 Therefore they will be like the morning cloud and like dew that is gone early, like chaff that is blown away from the threshing floor, and like smoke from a chimney.
God repeats His words from Hosea 6:4 saying His people’s loyalty to Him quickly evaporates and blows away, like smoke and chaff, the broken husks of grain seeds after they’re separated from the seed.
4 Yet I have been Yahovah your God since the land of Egypt, and you are not to know any god except Me, for there is no savior besides Me.
God reminds the people they are not to have any other gods, especially those who use His names, like the modern day Baals do.
5 I instructed and cared for you in the wilderness, in the land of drought.
God gave His people His laws and commands when they were in the desert wilderness, and kept them fed and supplied through the more than 40 years in the desert.
6 As they had their pasture, they were satisfied, and as they were satisfied, their heart became proud, therefore they forgot Me.

7 So I will be like a lion to them, and like a leopard, I will lie in wait by the wayside.

8 I will confront them like a bear deprived of her cubs, and I will tear open the cage of their heart. There, I will also devour them like a lioness, as a wild animal would tear them to pieces.

9 It is your destruction, Israel, because in Me is your help.
But when they entered the Promised Land and lost God’s most faithful, anointed leaders (Moses, Joshua, and the Judges), the people often turned away from God, as noted in Hosea 11:2.

Today, this turning away includes being loyal to Baal imposters and false teachings, so God will bring judgment on His unfaithful people as He did in ancient times.
10 Where then is your king, that he might save you in all your cities, and your judges, to whom you said, “Give me a king and princes?”

11 I gave you a king in My anger, And took him away in My wrath.
God did not want to give the people a human king, as He was their King, but He allowed them to have a king when they wanted one as the other nations (1 Samuel 8:4-9, 8:18, 10:17-19).

God anointed Saul as the first human king over His people (1 Samuel 9:15), but rejected him in anger when he failed to kill Agag, the King of the Amalekites, and destroy spoils of war (1 Samuel 15:3, 15:9-23).
12 The guilt of Ephraim is hostile and bound up. His sin is stored up.

13 The sorrow of childbirth will come on him. He is not a wise son, for it is not the time that he should remain at bringing forth children.
Judgment came and is still coming today for the unfaithful of God’s people. They yearn to continue having children, abundance, and fruit from their ministries, but despite much warnings and urgings to stop their ways and false teaching, they continue in them. But God says it is no longer time they remain in bringing forth from their ministries, and He will remove them from being priests, which was stated in Hosea 4:5-6, 5:1-15, and Zechariah 13:3.
14 I will ransom them from the power of Sheol. I will redeem them from death. Death, where is your sting? Sheol, where is your destruction? Compassion will be hidden from My sight.
Still, the Lord is gracious and He will yet keep even the unfaithful but saved in Christ from eternal death. God will not withhold judgment, though, and will bring fire to destroy all they and their churches and ministries have, which was noted for Hosea 7:16 and 8:14.
15 Though he flourishes among his brethren, an east wind of Yahovah will come up from the wilderness, and will shame his fountain. His spring will be made desolate. It will plunder his treasury of every precious article.

16 Samaria will be held guilty, because she rebelled against her God. They will fall by the sword. Their children will be slaughtered, and their pregnant women will be ripped open.
In ancient times, the east wind referred to King Nebuchadnezzar and Babylon destroying the last of Israel and exiling God’s people. God refers to even pagan armies as His armies when they bring His judgment (Joel 2:11).

For today, God’s east wind refers to the armies of Russia, China, and their allies, as noted in God’s Alarm above, His judgment on the Harlot Babylon has already begun, and it was prominently noted in world news that children and pregnant women died in the Ukraine invasion.
Hosea 14
1 Return, Israel, to Yahovah your God, for you have stumbled because of your wrongdoing.
For the last chapter of Hosea, God makes a final plea to His people to return to Him as they had not done before and acknowledge their sins.
2 Take words with you and return to Yahovah. Say to Him, “Take away all guilt and receive us graciously, so we may be restored from the idolatry of our lips.”

3 Assyria will not save us. We will not ride on horses. Nor will we say again, ‘You are our gods,’ to the work of our hands, for in You the orphan finds mercy.”
This acknowledgement and repentance needs to be done more formally through prayer, like the one I will give, though more specifics are usually needed for individual circumstances. This is important because of the spiritual effects of false teachings, sin, and demons have on people, and because individual circumstances vary.

I will offer a prayer at the end of this update, and if anyone wants my help with doing their prayers and dealing with the effects of sin, please feel free to contact me.

I translate the last words of Hosea 14:2 as idolatry of our lips because the Hebrew words are literally “two bulls of our lips,” which refers to the idolatry of the people in worshiping their Baals and the two idol bulls or calves they made (see notes for Hosea 5:10).
4 I will heal their turning away. I will love them freely, because My anger has turned away from them.
If anyone repents and wholehearted wants to change from being unfaithful to God and using false teachings and whatever is false, the Lord will love them unhindered because of their repentance.
5 I will be like the dew to Israel. He will blossom like the lily, and he will take root like the cedars of Lebanon.

6 His branches will spread. His beauty will be like the olive tree, and his fragrance like the cedars of Lebanon.

7 Those who dwell in His shade, their grain will be restored, and they will blossom like the vine. His fame will be like the wine of Lebanon.
God will be like the dew that refreshes and make the repentant, faithful person blossom in countenance, and steadfast in spirit. This links to a verse in The Song of the Messiah"But Your dead will live. Their corpses will rise! Awake and shout for joy, you who dwell in the dust! For your dew is as the dew of the dawn. And the earth will bring forth her dead" (Isaiah 26:19).

This obviously refers to the promise of everlasting salvation, life, and resurrection from Christ and the New Covenant.

But here it is temporal renewal in this life - God will renew the faithful person who continues to depend on Him for protection and help. They will grow and bear good fruits with the True Vine in Christ, as opposed to the false vines of imposters. These false and empty vines were mentioned for Hosea 2:12 and 10:1.
8 Ephraim, what more have I to do with idols? It is I who answer and look after you. I am like a luxuriant fir tree; from Me comes your fruit.
The way God has allowed imposters of Him and other gods to influence His kingdom and people is ending. It is the end of the age now, when God will starve the Baal imposters and all other gods, which was noted in Hosea 2:6-7, 4:18, 5:6, 7:9, and 8:10.

This is to prepare for Christ’s return and reign when Satan and his demons will not be able to deceive mankind for His 1000 year reign (Revelation 20:1-3).

So all people on earth will have to acknowledge that it is God alone that blesses and protects. And His people, especially, need to acknowledge this as they reject their Baals and what is false.
9 Whoever is wise, let them understand these things. Whoever is discerning, let them know, for the ways of Yahovah are right, and the righteous will walk in them, but wrongdoers will stumble in them.
The truth about God’s people’s idolatry, both for ancient times and now, was given. The wise and discerning will understand and see why God allowed these things, but those who remain loyal to what is false will not accept or understand these revelations and receive worse judgment because they would not acknowledge God.

Heaven and earth witness to you that I have placed life and death, blessing and curse before you, and God Himself testifies to the truth of these matters just as I have explained. So if you would acknowledge the voice of our one true God and make yourself close to Him in truth and purity, with no more affiliation to Baals and false teachings, then speak this prayer.
In the name of Mashiach Yeshua, I renounce all dark spiritualism, false gospels, false teachings, and all spirits attached to them. Let all curses from past pursuits of dark spiritualism, divination, false spiritual guidance, and from false gospels and teachings be broken. Amen.

Heaven Father Yahovah, forgive me in my past loyalties to impostors and false teachings. May you receive me with your lovingkindness and renew me, my family, and all I have in a more righteous life with you. Amen.
If you did this, you have proclaimed your loyalty to God alone and tried to take care of curses from sin, but this may still not be enough to take care of all negative spiritual effects of past sins, so please contact me if you feel you need further help.

Now proceed and remain out of the Harlot Babylon by not returning to or supporting false teachings, imposters of God, their institutions, and sins that God has been pointing out through this Alarm thread and through the 3rd Compass ministry. Be blessed and faithful in your righteous walk with the Lord, through Mashiach Yeshua. Amen.

Update - Reminder to keep perspective 10/13/2023
It is almost seven full days after Hamas attacked Israel, and the sudden war continues. It is further proof of the tribulations God has been warning of in this thread, and more urging to leave and be apart from that Harlot Babylon God revealed here. The dead number over 1300 Israelis now with about the same number of Hamas terrorists and about half that number in Palestinian civilians in Gaza where Hamas is based.

International support is mounting for both sides of the conflict, but in recent updates you may wonder where I stand in all this. Some may even think me callous when I give no public prayer or support for Israel or any who are suffering.

However, those who’ve been with me a while should know where I stand. When Russia invaded Ukraine and all the atrocities there were happening I was clear that it was God’s judgment (see update for details) and that we should recognize that and pray accordingly. I said almost two years ago that God would not listen to the world’s pleas and prayers for Russia to stop their invasion, and to this day it continues.

And now with the Hamas attack on Israel, I was also clear it was God’s judgment, and did not offer public sympathy, which I’m sure many feel is callous. Those who feel that way likely come from believing communities that over emphasize love and God’s love, and so view God and the world with tinted, rosy glasses, often unwilling to acknowledge where judgment truly comes from, because they’ve been taught wrong by the church and their teachers who don’t truly know God.

Remember He said, I am Yahovah, the One forming light and creating darkness, causing well-being and creating disaster. I am Yahovah who does all these things (Isaiah/Yeshayahu 45:6-7).

As the Lord’s servant anointed to a distinct station, I also strive to make righteous judgment and not give partiality, as He tells all His people to do (Leviticus 19:15; Deuteronomy 1:17, 16:19; Job 10:13; Psalm 82:2; Proverbs 18:5, 24:23, 28:21; James 2:1-9; 1 Timothy 5:21). I stand with Yahovah God on matters and not with the swaying emotions of mankind, and so when I am plain and direct about things without showing emotion or giving prayers of support, some may think me heartless.

But you do not know where my heart truly is, nor what I do in private, nor what this ministry does to help the people. The Lord knows and I suggest all who think me callous in the great suffering of people to not jump to conclusions and to grow further towards the maturity of our Lord in Mashiach Yeshua.

Today, I saw a song and prayer being sung for Israeli soldiers showing faith in God with tallit prayer shawls and black tefillin cubes and straps. Tefillin are symbols of religious Jews, especially Orthodox men, and are hard to miss in bold black, strapped on wrists and projecting from foreheads. Their use today have a very overtly pious nature that was not what God intended when He gave the command for His people to wear written reminders of the Law (Deuteronomy/Devarim 6:8). I commend the Jews for trying to honor a commandment given to them, as their practice comes from a pious wish to honor God, but its nature was corrupted by overly religious false teachings.

When the Messiah came, Christ said, "Take care not to practice your righteousness in the sight of people, to be noticed by them" (Mathew 6:1), which does go with practices like wearing very overt tefillin. God's command to wear reminders of His law was for His people to remember them, so that they would walk in them, and remember God and to fear Him so they would not sin. God did not mean the reminders to be brandished as phylacteries and icons of obedience to God. He wanted His people to remember Him and His laws so that they would not sin, which is the context of Deuteronomy/Devarim 6:8 where God tells the Jews to wear reminders.

The mature person of God does not need to wear any reminders at all, and so, when I watched the song video for the soldiers, I couldn't help but notice they picked a dried out, dead flower to show with cube tefillin. This reminded me of God's Alarm and how He is heating up the climate of the world so that people who do not change towards righteousness will not be able to survive.

It saddens me that these Israeli soldiers do not realize where God is standing in the bad things that are happening now. They, their leaders, and communities have rejected God's call to leave the Old Law, but you are at least here with an open ear. May you recognize the times we’re in and where God stands in them. The world is rushing to help Israel and Palestine now, as they have rushed to help Ukraine these past years. If you feel called to do so, then I pray the Lord guides you strongly and clearly, for the people the world rushes to help is in that Harlot Babylon I’ve been speaking of, and it is God’s will that judgment comes to her and she be destroyed in our days.

Why do you think God has been so urgent in His callings to leave the Harlot these past years, revealing what and who she really is through this ministry and much proof? Urging again and again, Come out of her, My people, so that you will not share in her sins - in the judgments that are coming to her (Revelation 18:4; Jeremiah 50:8-10, 51:49-50).

Those who ran to fight for Ukraine have died and suffered for it. And those who remain in the Harlot and try to fight for her will share in her sins no matter where they stand, even in the Holy Land. So again, be certain if you feel called to help those suffering in the judgments of the Harlot, that God truly wants you to help. The nature of help varies, so I do not object to helping altogether. God will help and save many righteous who are caught within these judgments, but do not go too far and stand apart and against God in His judgments. So as when Ukraine was first invaded, I remind to pray and do accordingly in these times of suffering.

Update - God further shows the Hamas attack on Israel was His judgment 10/30/2023
Recent comments in a Times of Israel article show further that the Hamas attack on October 7 this month was truly God's judgment on Israel and Judaism, as I had been saying.

However, Christian or Messianic Jewish believers might miss the point about God's judgment on all His people, and not just Judaism, so remember that the Harlot Babylon, of whom you are seeing God's judgment upon in these days, are ALL believing peoples in religions and lifestyles that remain loyal to what is false. God connected the comments in the following Times of Israel article to verses in Hosea, which I fully explained and gave translation in an earlier update.

Comments copied from "The mental health groups pouring salt in the wound of Jewish trauma" at The Times of Israel (bolding and emphasis added), which talked about major psychological organizations not condemning Hamas specifically and not being ethical by supposedly justifying Hamas and "gaslighting" Jews. The term gaslighting is defined as, "psychological manipulation by grossly misleading someone, especially for one's own advantage"[6.1]. I found the article's author overexaggerated things and was not showing good discernment or righteous judgment.
Minister Ty Alexander: "Which leaders are being referred to here?" It looked like the statement was obvious. They were talking about Palestinian leaders and not just Hamas, and so are not simply talking about terrorists. The commentary in this blog is typical of "woke" or exaggerated perceptions of what is truly harmful, like so-called "gaslighting". There may be harmful "gaslighting" but simply telling things as they are is not that.

And yes, there should be empathy for victims whether Israeli, Jewish, Palestinians, Muslim, or otherwise, but for victims to not fully understand why things happened as they did, will only keep them in the dark so that they continue in beliefs and ways that are bringing great harm to them. May the author and all who are over exaggerating things have peace and wisdom come to them by El Elyon, God Most High. Amen.

bjcremer: Facts are Facts. A letter was found, I have seen it, on the body of a killed terrorist, with a text citation : ""behead them and carve their hearts out"".

For me, that is Fact.. ''Exaggeration"' , in Arabic Mubâlagha , is described as typical for Arabs in the book of Dr. Sania Hamady Ph.D, on page 62, the title; ""Temperament and Character of the Arabs"".  I myself worked in Europe with an Arab as computer operator 1971. When he made a mistake, it was always not him but someone else responsible.

Now we can see this in much bigger scene: HaMaS  is accusing the Palestinian Jews of everything, even ""genocide"", but HaMaS started this war.

Minister Ty Alexander: Facts are facts, but easily misconstrued and misused and exaggerated and so turn into misinformation. I see all sides do this. Your experience with Arabs colors your view of them in general, but I wouldn't judge every Arab or Muslim or Palestinian as hateful and irresponsible. I see people like that on every side. As far as Hamas goes, they are militant terrorists, but that does not negate my point that if victims overexaggerate things that are not harmful and de-emphasis things that are harmful and do not see any accountability for themselves in bad events, then it is only going to keep bringing them harm. Where does justice and judgment truly come from, Israel?

This is what God told His people when they turn their backs on Him, that is, when they don't do what is right and keep His commands, "I will confront them like a bear deprived of her cubs, and I will tear open the cage of their heart. There, I will also devour them like a lioness, as a wild animal would tear them to pieces. It is your destruction, Israel, because in Me is your help" (Hosea 13:8-9).

Will you contend still that God is not using Hamas to judge His people?

If anyone wants to know why God is bringing judgment, please read God's Offering to All in Judaism at 3rdCompass. And for the Christians who see this, do not think judgment is only on Israel, for you are part of spiritual Israel and I suggest you read God's Alarm for all His people.

To the comment moderators and administrators of this paper and site, you have removed the words of God and prevented His appeals from reaching His people. Don't you think Yahovah El Elyon holds His people to higher standards? Therefore, honor Him and respect His anointed. Whosoever removes or prevents these words from being seen by all be cursed. Amen.

It should be clear that what has been said about the identity of the Harlot Babylon and God's judgment on her in this thread are true. God showed it with many tribulations beginning with the COVID pandemic first. Then God emphasized it with Ukraine. And now God affirms it with Israel and Palestinians, for Muslims too are included.

Update - The Commonality of Severe Failures in Events like Uvalde and the Hamas Attack 11/3/2023
The other day I noted a comment in a Times of Israel article that compared the great failure of the Israeli military to intervene in the Hamas attack on October 7th with the failures of the Parkland and Uvalde school shootings. Because God had guided me to speak on shootings and Uvalde, I had to also comment on how the failure of Israel compared to those situations. However, after giving The Times of Israel a day to let my comment post publicly, they still kept it hidden from public view as of this writing.

Both the Parkland and Uvalde shootings had elements that allowed the shooters to kill many people without opposition. Both events had law enforcement officers on the premises before the shootings started, yet nothing was really done to stop the shooters. In the case of Uvalde, the shooter was shooting and killing victims for 77 minutes before law enforcement confronted him.

The Times of Israel article, "Hundreds of soldiers waited outside Be’eri with terrorists still inside, survivor says," gave a witness account of only two survivors from the kibbutz community of Be'eri. In it were several remarks about the military being stifled from action that were very similar to the inaction of law enforcement in the Parkland and Uvalde shootings. Armed help was in the area but did not act.

If you read the article, you see remarks about the military refusing to engage the terrorists because "the field isn't sterile" or because they did not have permission to fire munitions into the kibbutz. And while two elite military units did try to engage, they failed and the residents were left to Hamas for many, many hours - basically the entire day from the start of the attack early in the morning until around 6:30 pm when Israeli troops finally took the community. By then it was too late, just like at Parkland and Uvalde.

I previously said how the Israeli communities where alone and abandoned during the attack, which fulfilled Old Testament prophecy from Isaiah/Yeshayahu. What was reported from Be'eri only put an exclamation point on the fact that judgment from God was and is on His people, so keep that in mind as you read the copied comments from the article:
jpx_123: So now we see that this was actually like a Parkland or Uvalde situation. Would someone in the Community be kind enough to explain to me please what the soldiers meant when they said "the field isn't sterile". What was their thinking at that time? The article didn't explain that and I am confused by that. Also, can someone kindly explain what the reasoning was for the helicopter not having permission to fire inside the kibbutz. We know now what a terrible decision that was, but what was the thinking/mentality at the time. I am confused by that also, and I just want to understand what the mindset was on the part of those soldiers at that time. It seems to me that the article left out a lot of context and background and actually raised more questions for me than it answered. Can someone help me fill in those blanks? Thanks so much.

ExUSPara: Good analogy. The poor excuse for an Uvalde Incident Commander (pencil pushing school police chief), who was later fired, gave the order to stand-down--in essence turning the event into a barricade (it took 70+ minutes to breach, leading to more deaths). In Active Shooter events we've learned that you have to go in right away when innocents are being killed. Period. Delay also means injured will bleed out. I'm sure lessons will be learned, but leadership has to lead the way, and disregard orders if they are unlawful or not practical. It's difficult to judge, but it sounds like the elite special ops troops led the way and didn't hesitate to engage, and saved the day, but there probably wasn't enough of them.

denleendemannen: The field not being sterile refers to there being active enemy combatants not yet cleared out from the air (as only then would the soldiers enter the area to secure it against further waves of terrorists); this combined with apparent orders for helicopter pilots to not engage targets inside the kibbutz seems to have led to a situation where ”no one was doing anything” other than watch it all unfold.

This purely based on the accounts quoted in this article.

jpx_123: Why would there be orders for the pilots not to engage targets in the kibbutz? What's the reasoning (at the time)?

newsman120: Were some of the Hamas wearing IDF uniforms and equipment? If so, maybe prudent for a helicopter gunship at least,  to not engage until it knows who's who?

Minister Ty Alexander: The comparison with gun violence and especially Uvalde is very appropriate here, but it really is not about the failures of leadership, though that is a factor. Such extreme failures like these that allow enemies to have great success show what it is like to have God against you. If God is with you, there is much blessing and protection to prevent such things or great loss in them, but when God is against you, it is your enemies and misfortune that are blessed. When, Israel, will you see this? For as when Yahovah El Elyon, God Most High, decided to tear apart the kingdom because of King Sh'lemo/Solomon's sins and rose an enemy to him in Yerovam/Jeroboam so that most of Israel would go to Yerovam instead of Sh'lemo's son, Rechovam/Rehoboam, so it is today in such great failures. It was God that made Rechovam respond foolishly to the people after he took kingship and so thereafter the kingdom of God's people was divided under two kingships (1 Melachim I/Kings 12:1-24). And so today, it is God that is against the people, making their leaders fail. If you do not want to believe it, then I urge you to see what Yahovah El Elyon has shown with Uvalde, gun violence, and the Hamas attack at 3rdCompass
The point of my comment was that the great failures of Israel and its military were not simply about poor leadership as people are blaming, but was because God is against them. So like other believing communities that have been seeing horrible events, like mass shootings and other disasters, God has shown to Israel what it is like to be an enemy to Him.

Update - Testimony to stay with this ministry, more affirmations of God's Alarm, dreams, visions, guardian angels, Leviathan 11/29/2023
This testimony supports God’s guidance in His Alarm and the leadership that this ministry provides. It also gives a better picture of that Leviathan in scripture and how God uses dreams, spiritual guidance, and guardian angels. I also talk about the Book of Enoch in this testimony. But because some information is not meant for all to receive, and God does not want everything explained clearly to everyone, I’ve been holding off on posting this testimony.

After Christ spoke in public with riddles and hidden truth (parables), He said to His disciples in private, To you it has been granted to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been granted. For whoever has, to him more shall be given, and he will have an abundance. But whoever does not have, even what he has shall be taken away from him. Therefore, I speak to them in parables, because while seeing they do not see, and while hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand.

And in their case the prophecy of Isaiah is being fulfilled, which says, ‘You shall keep on listening, but shall not understand. And you shall keep on looking, but shall not perceive. For the heart of this people has become dull; With their ears they scarcely hear, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their heart, and return, and I would heal them.’ But blessed are your eyes, because they see, and your ears, because they hear (Matthew 13:11-16; Mark 4:11-12; Acts 28:25-27; Isaiah 6:9-10).

Obviously, God is withholding from the public, a clear picture of the truth so that they would NOT be saved by it. This truth might irk the church who is fallen to too much love doctrine, but it is the correct picture of God and Christ. Even though He desires all to be saved (1 Timothy 2:3-4), He will not make it easy for everyone to get salvation because of their sins and what is in their hearts.

And so, this is why this testimony had to wait until I could prevent the general public from seeing it. It was only in the last few days that the website enacted member content that requires a login. This testimony is free to all if you get a free account here, so have no worries if you do not want to pay for a subscription.

I copy this testimony from conversations with someone who I was giving counsel to in 2022 (edited and added comments are in square brackets). The conversations took place over many weeks. I will label this person, Brethren.
Brethren: In this dream I was naked, but it wasn't a sexual dream by any means. I was in a beautiful garden surrounded by forest. There was a small pool of water that I looked into and expected to see my reflection, but it wasn't there. I looked down at my body and noticed I was naked, but didn't see anything odd about that fact. I looked to my right and saw two trees more beautiful and magnificent than the rest. I reached out my hand and a vine grew towards me. It touched my hand and started to wrap gently around my body and pull me nearer to the trees. It formed a sort of hammock on my back and lifted me off the ground. I was wrapped in this blanket of leaves and cradled beneath the canopy of these two trees. The dream gave me the feeling of security and safety I had never felt before and upon awakening all I could think of was how much it reminded me of the Garden of Eden.

Minister Ty Alexander: About your dream in the Eden-like forest - The Lord revealed its meaning to me the same night I read it, and He backed it up with an article I saw the next morning, so He must want to give it urgency and importance. I see He gave it to you for encouragement and to affirm your feelings about me and this ministry.

You are naked but not ashamed in the dream, symbolizing an innocent, non-condemning state. You cannot see your reflection in the pool to also affirm you do not have any self-condemnation or self-judgment. This is the Lord urging you to stop blaming and self-condemning yourself. Not all the bad things that happened to you were all your fault.

The vine coming to bring you towards the two trees is the Lord, our True Vine, after you sought His help [in years before], which is symbolized by your reaching out in the dream. I am one of the trees, while my ministry partner is the other. Together, the trees represent this ministry.

You feel security and safety under the trees because of what we teach and from the spiritual help you will get from this ministry, some of which will bring you to that place of protection in these times of Tribulation I talk about. The peaceful Eden-like forest represents the wilderness I mentioned from Revelation 12 where the Lord has been leading me to bring people to. I’m still not certain exactly what this wilderness will be like literally, but for now, I just know it will be a place of safety, separated from the great troubles that will come upon all the earth.

You said the end times are more about strengthening in spirit, but more accurately, it is strengthening in righteousness, which is why I talk a lot about leaving sin and changing the ways commonly found in the church and world.

Here is the article that affirmed I understood why you didn’t see your reflection in the pool: https://theconversation.com/staring-at-an-image-of-yourself-on-zoom-has-serious-consequences-for-mental-health-especially-for-women-180384. It was just published today and talks about how seeing your image, like in Zoom meetings, is mentally unhealthy, especially for women.

I understood everything else about your dream without need for more, so may you take heart and see how the Lord has worked things and gave you a prophecy that says you will get peace and healing with us. Praise the Lord for His wonderous works!

Brethren: In my dream the trees looked small or at least regularly sized. But grew to the size of redwoods. They glowed. The one closest to me glowed a bluish purple but you could still see the green through it, so at some angles it almost looked turquoise and the tree farthest from me had bright golden leaves and glowed red/orange. I do remember seeing a large white bird in the sky once I laid in the vine hammock. I always saw it as a sort of crane. (And I seem to see those birds now and again when I'm really stressed or troubled. I always see it as a reminder to be still, keep faith).

Minister Ty Alexander: Your tree dream... was the Lord’s prophecy and guidance to you as I said. Do you recall what year you had that dream? It sounds like you had it before I met my ministry partner. Obviously, he is represented by the farther away tree in the dream. He doesn’t like to be made public in ministry yet, but he’s made very good contributions to this ministry with the Lord’s guidance working together with mine in the last few years.

The crane in your dream is interesting. It reminds me of the white Seabhac Azure [Irish for Azure Hawk] in Aching Prosperity [the Seabhac Azure is a supernatural bird I used as a guiding character symbolizing God in my novel, Aching Prosperity]. The Lord has guided me with a lot of bird symbolism through the years, but nothing specifically on cranes though. White cranes usually represent positive things, like balance, harmony, and renewal.

What do you mean you “see those birds (cranes) now and again?” Do you mean in visions?

Brethren: I had the dream in my early 20’s. So between 10-12 years ago. The green tree was closest to me, and even though the gold tree was closer to my head, the green one stayed more prominent in my sight. Except when the bird flew by. It came from the direction of the green tree and flew towards the gold one. Almost made a loose backwards S in the sky.

About the crane - I see an actual bird in my waking life when I'm having troubles. And not always, but frequently enough to be noticeable. In the past when I've been depressed, specifically when COVID had us on lock down - and also [in other troubles], it would come to me in my dreams.

Minister Ty Alexander: Thank you for sharing more about your dream. The crane you see could be an angel or spirit giving you encouragement, like a guardian angel from the prayers of your mother or grandmother or even yourself when you asked God for help. Its behavior in your dream matches that of the Seabhac Azure in Aching Prosperity, circling to tell you to follow or remain under the two trees, which translates to, you should follow my guidance/counsel and what this ministry teaches.

The visions you see while awake could be “open visions” [visions seen with eyes open] that only you can see (not a spirit in the world, but caused by the Spirit or a spirit influencing your senses) or they could be a spirit in the world manifesting visually to you [Brethren's white crane was later confirmed to be a spirit manifesting itself, because Brethren was able to take a blurry photo of the crane, which I saw], which they can also limit who sees them, so someone with you might not see or hear the spirit. Your crane appears to be a guardian angel type of spirit.

Brethren: This past week I've dreamt of a flood twice and being in the ocean with a sea monster. (I have dreamt of drowning and water with a same scary feeling, but it's been a long time since I've dreamt of a flood. I'm not 100% sure what it means). Each time I see the flood come, I get to safety with others and then the water recedes. In one dream, after I was spared, I see people going about their lives just as they had been living before, but I'm back from them observing and trying to look for danger. They're walking along a beach, enjoying the day as if nothing happened, and I'm above them pacing a cliff trying to figure out why they haven't taken the flood more seriously. I'm thinking we're still in danger, but they don't see.

The second one was very similar, except I wasn't walking a cliff observing, I was on a tall pillar. And they didn't go about their days, they continued to drown over and over again as I wept for them. They were too far to reach.

The third was different. A flood came and took everyone into the deep but we didn't die. It was one of those odd dreams where I could breathe under water. I remember being sucked down below with everyone else, but I was the only one alive. There was a sea monster waiting on the ocean floor. As I was being pulled down, I remember seeing the light from above me disappear but I didn't lose sight as the darkness surrounded me. When my feet hit the ocean floor, the creature was waiting and looked right at me. It was taking the dead bodies and consuming them but its eyes stayed with mine. I tried rushing closer to it to defeat it, but it was protected and I couldn't reach it no matter how hard I tried. I woke up shortly after, and I'm not sure what it meant. But I read about Noah and the flood in the Bible and then listened to the Book of Enoch.

Minister Ty Alexander: Your flood and sea monster dreams do appear to be from the Lord. The sea monster is Leviathan in scripture, which represents the enemy, especially demons that give false teaching and false prophecy. I talked about it recently in [a ministry update].

The Lord is giving you a series of dreams that show your circumstances as opposed to others. Floods usually symbolize any big tribulations/hardships/judgments. Your dreams are showing the times we’re in now of God’s big judgments coming upon the earth (the floods in your dream). You understand that these tribulations are God’s judgment for sin and they’re not over, so you continue watching for danger, while others dismiss them as random events or don’t see them as judgment for sins, so they go about their lives as before. You know they’re still in danger but they can’t see it.

Your next dream shows what will continue to happen in these times as God’s judgments on the earth (the floods) continue – people will die (drown) over and over again. This is the part of the Day of the Lord I talk about in the update and elsewhere, that it is one tribulation after another – The day of Yahovah is darkness, and not light. As if a man did flee from a lion, and a bear met him; or went into the house, and leaned his hand on the wall, and a snake bit him. Shall not the day of Yahovah be darkness, and not light? Even very dark, with no brightness in it? (Amos 5:18-20).

You are on a tall pillar to symbolize you’re protected from the floods, which goes with keeping in the counsel of this ministry and leaving behind certain sins and the Harlot Babylon, as I talk about in some articles, especially God’s Alarm. Leaving the Harlot and more sin behind is necessary to get protection from the worst events of the Tribulation.

The last dream shows more of Leviathan and people succumbing to the floods, especially because they won’t leave the Harlot and sins. Part of the reason for that is because the enemy (Leviathan) keeps people confused and blinded with false guidance and teaching. You, though, try to attack it, which symbolizes your willingness help this ministry, but you find it cannot be killed. That’s because only the Lord can kill it. The enemy has authority to reign in the realms God gave them, but in the [ministry update], I said Leviathan is being punished now, which goes with this ministry’s work in revealing the truth about the enemy [and rebuking false teachers and prophets]. However, Leviathan won’t be killed until the Lord returns.

The Lord seems to be reaffirming your connection with me and what I teach and helping this ministry, since you try to kill Leviathan, but you also find you cannot defeat it, so the Lord also reminds you this spiritual fight will have limited success. Most people will not listen enough to change and leave the Harlot, and Leviathan (Satan) will only be defeated after the Lord returns and locks the enemy up for the Millennial Reign (Revelation 20:1-3).

Your feeling that the dreams go with warning about [peoples’] sins is also valid, [they] are more vulnerable to the tribulations that are coming because of [their] sins.

About the Book of Enoch – I tried to read it years ago but stopped maybe half way after I saw a lot of wording that I don’t believe was from the Lord. Scholars have also dated the book to a much later date than it should be. Enoch lived in pre-Flood times and would have used very ancient Hebrew. Perhaps the words got “modernized” through later scribes, but I don’t think the Book of Enoch we have today is the actual one [a true scroll from Enoch's time would have to be dated to be from pre-Flood times, many thousands of years ago, older than 1500 BC], but it likely contains some of Enoch’s original words.

Enoch’s prophecies are mentioned in the New Testament, but whether or not they refer to the book that was found is not clear. I treat it like the Apocrypha. It may contain some truth, but I don’t treat it as scripture.

Minister Ty Alexander: [After giving you hard to believe and follow corrections,] I know you don’t want me to be right about these things, but remember the tree dream and how the crane stayed over the trees. It was God’s urging you to stay under the counsel of this ministry.

Minister Ty Alexander: I was reviewing scripture yesterday when I got more revelation of the tall pillar you’re standing on in one of the flood dreams. Like one of the trees in your trees dream, the pillar represents me and my teaching/counsel, as I am also a pillar of the church (Galatians 2:9).

This also reinforces that it is keeping in what I’ve been teaching about leaving the Harlot Babylon and sin that allows you to have safety in these times. That’s represented by your standing on the pillar [and being saved by the floods while everyone one else dies].

Brethren: I feel like I should be helping people to accept Jesus, but I’m not sure of my audience or my approach yet. I feel if I try to just preach my understandings, it won't be received. I had a dream about you and your church. At least it's what I believe to be about you and your church. I wrote something about sin the night prior, trying to put it into a context that more people could understand and had the thought (as I have before) to create a blog that could help people through hardships. The dream was short, but the ideas that came as soon as I woke up were strong.

In my dream I saw a group of people at a crossroads. It wasn't like a four way stop that we see in our cities, it was more like a countryside scene with dirt roads. The people gathered were confused and frustrated and discussing which way they should go. There were poles or posts at each path but they weren't all named and the ones that were named didn't have words, just symbols. I walked up to the crowd and through them and drew my logo on one of the bare signs (Light Within). I began to walk down a path. Some followed me and others went onto the different paths. We walked for a while and they spoke to each other, but they never spoke to me.

They were questioning what the symbol I posted meant and wondering if this was the way they should go. We came to another crossroads but this one didn't have any signs or poles. One was bare, but had a small tree next to it and the other two had big flat stones next to them as markers, but no symbols were written on them. I took the path with the tree. When we reached the end it was like we entered a whole new terrain. This place was filled with life. A lush forest and a river running through it. The people finally spoke to me and asked me how I knew that was the right path. I told them I had followed my Compass. One asked where it was and I pointed up to the sky.

When I woke up I immediately thought of my blog and 3rd Compass. Of posting what I wrote about sin and linking it to your page. But I'm still unsure how exactly it's connected.

Minister Ty Alexander: Your dream is interesting and more so that this is the second time the Lord sent something more physical my way to go with understanding it, like with the trees dream you had. Tonight I watched 60 Minutes on TV and they had a story about a black family being led to buy an old house and property in the area where they grew up. They later found out it was the very same plantation property that their ancestors were enslaved on. They found documented proof of it, so they acknowledged God must have brought them to buy the property all this time later. I think it was a kind of reconciliation for the family and that past of slavery, as well as to learn their own heritage. You can probably watch the 60 Minutes episode online, if you’re interested.

But the part that reminded me of your dream was when they found the slave cemetery in the back. The graves were only marked with stones, some flat, but all unmarked. The Lord appears to be further affirming with your dream about how you should help with this ministry.

I see the slave graves with unmarked stones as linked to slavery under sin (a spiritual slavery in Egypt for God’s People), which correspond to the paths with unmarked stones in your dream – they are the wrong way, which will keep believers in spiritual slavery and in sin. The right path with the tree, though, appears to go to that wilderness place of protection I’ve said where the Bride with wings will go to be protected in the coming Tribulations. That requires leaving the Harlot Babylon and more sin.

I think your feelings about using your blog and linking to 3rd Compass are correct. It looks like you shouldn’t be ministering or preaching too much as you lead people with that because you don’t talk to anyone in the dream until you get to the forest. You also seem to be subtly guiding people to the right path by you putting your logo on a sign. This might correspond to talking about how you found this ministry and the truth you found here or with me.

Why did you state Light Within with your logo that you put on a sign, though? Are you referring to my Light Within article or something else?

Brethren:  Light Within. This "brand" name came about when I was writing my book. My main character… goes through many struggles trying to keep her compass straight and refers to listening to the light within her to keep her mission as highest priority. (More things from my life that resembles things of yours - Aching Prosperity, [your main character] being reminded to mind the mission... these "coincidences" help me trust you).

Light Within has kind of stuck as a reminder and words of hope for me. Follow your Compass, and let the light within be your guide. So "light within" is a phrase I use often [like when I'm discussing God with others]. I think because I've had so much darkness in my life that Christ's light has always been a beacon of hope. Follow the light, stay in the light, hold the light within you.

When you asked the question about Light Within I was confused. I remembered you [giving] a link to it, but it didn't really click.

Minister Ty Alexander: It’s really interesting you chose Light Within to name your brand. I chose that name to refer to God’s light (wisdom/truth) and Spirit within us, literally as a part of our reborn spirits with Christ. My article Light Within shares more hard to accept truths about the enemy, false guidance, and our spiritual fight, so it’s for more mature believers. That doesn’t seem to fit your dream, since it suggests you do less preaching and more subtle guiding. Sometimes shining God’s light/truth too brightly is too much for people, especially immature believers. The Lord bless you in shining His light to guide people towards His truth and salvation, through Christ. Amen.

You might have served the wrong masters before, but religious spirits, which include imposter spirits I often talk about, often make people overzealous for more strict doctrine, sanctification, holiness, etc. Christ is our one and only Master, but we need to make sure it really is Him and His guidance that we’re listening to. The imposters I’ve seen tend to make people their complete, unquestioning slaves with their false teaching and false guidance, but obviously they’re not God, so we should not give our lives or decisions to them.

We should not try to interpret false guidance as it can really skew the truth. I’ve seen people get false guidance and false prophecy that they keep trying to interpret because they think it is from the Lord, but what they’re doing is trying to force good interpretations on false guidance and lies. It only keeps them blinded to the enemy’s deceptions and influence on them.

For most people, the Lord doesn’t give that many dreams and visions. I don’t get them very often and I’ve said in a few posts that the Lord guides me more by moving the real world to speak to me to counter all the false, more spiritual guidance like dreams, words, and visions being given by the enemy. That is the flood from the dragon’s mouth to try and sweep away or mislead believers in Revelation 12:15[, but because the Lord counters the devil's flood of false guidance with real, physical things for me, it fulfills the prophecy for the protected Bride in Revelation 12, stating, "But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and drank up the river which the dragon hurled out of his mouth" (Revelation 12:16)].

I also want you to not try to interpret everything either. Getting people to interpret and treat false guidance the same as good guidance is another hook of the enemy. If something is from the Lord, He will give you the interpretation, either by direct revelation to you (which may take time) or through a servant like me. You should just reject any dream or guidance that is very questionable.

I know it’s frustrating to get such a mix of good and false guidance, but it is very, very common in the church. You will need to get used to questioning whether something is from the Lord or not first, before you do anything more with it.

This conversation reveals God gave this person, who I call Brethren here, a prophetic dream about a decade before we met. It showed how Christ would bring Brethren to me and this ministry (the glowing trees), as well as tell Brethren to stay under the counsel and teaching of this ministry. God also gave Brethren more recent spiritual guidance that linked to Light Within, which represents God, our Compass, the truth, as well as teaching that I have given.

God also gave Brethren the image of a will kill the enemy, Satan, represented by the sea serpent, Leviathan. However, Brethren found that the sea monster could not be killed, because as I told Brethren, it may be punished or wounded (Isaiah 27:1), but only God can “kill” it after Christ returns.

Another important point was God told Brethren to NOT preach to or teach others, but to only guide them subtly as Brethren walked the right path with God and this ministry.

... This goes with my many warnings to people and false teachers to take very seriously teaching roles for God and that there should NOT be many teachers among us (James 3:1). There are too many people running and teaching with false teachings and false guidance from imposters of God. This is not only cursed (Galatians 1:8-9), but it is a tactic of the devil to urge whole congregations of laypeople to go about teaching and preaching when they do not have enough knowledge, training, or God's anointment.

Through all this guidance, God told Brethren, as well as all of you, to stay in the counsel of this ministry because you will be protected by it, and eventually be led to a place of safety in that wilderness of Revelation 12, while those who do not heed or take warnings seriously would die in the repeated tribulations that are coming.

I also gave warnings to Brethren, as I have to many believers, to not jump to conclusions with spiritual guidance like dreams, words, and visions. The great majority of them in the church and other sects are not from God, but people run about sharing and interpreting them as if they were from God, which is often to their great detriment, such as with a false prophet whom the Lord showed me was fulfilling the prophecy about false prophets and teachers in Zechariah 13:4-6 (see The Lord said, Let no one argue and let no one rebuke for details).

Getting tons of dreams, words, and visions is not the mark of a true prophet or teacher of God. As I told Brethren, God does not guide that way. It is most often the devil guides like that through the imposter Baals who impersonate God, Christ, and the Holy Spirit. With me, though, the Lord often affirms His guidance by sending confirmations and further revelations with real things, people, and events in the world, often timed exactly for the right moment so that counsel can be given to those that need it, such as you see with Brethren here. I’ve shared much of that physical correlation with God's guidance on this website.

These things are part of God's Old Testament prophecy for the Last Days, saying, "I will display wonders in the sky and on the earth..." (Joel 2:30; Acts 2:19). I've shared many of them through the years, such as in my background Predestined testimony, and I noted above, too, that these physical things moving to help me stand against the flood of lies from the devil is fulfilment of God moving the earth in Revelation 12, so that it helped the [protected Bride], and the earth opened its mouth and drank up the river which the dragon hurled out of his mouth" (Revelation 12:16).

God affirms His path with the heavens 12/22/2023
God has guided me with the heavens and stars. Sometimes it was for personal guidance and encouragement, like when He had me notice the Rose Galaxy (ARP 273) and the Christmas Star alignment of 2021. But most of the time, God’s stellar alignments were to guide me in ministry.

It was in 2008 that the Lord had me notice a constellation with the moon and stars during my first steps with Him in Christ. That constellation brought the name, 3rd Compass, to this ministry (see Predestined for details).

Last year, God started up and turned a supermassive blackhole to point to earth just in time to highlight things I needed to talk about related to God’s Alarm. More recently,  I examined the ancient cycles of the moon to determine more precise dates for the birth and death of Christ.

God has given me guidance through the movement of the moon, stars, planets, constellations, and whole galaxies through the years, so that I could teach and guide people with more detail and better discernment. They are part of the wonders in the sky above and signs on the earth below prophesied by God for our times in these Last Days (Joel/Yoel 2:30; Acts 2:19), and God has used these signs and wonders to reinforce that I truly speak and teach for Him. I have said this many times, yet, most people stand far off, scoff, cover their ears, and give no help for God’s work here.

In all the works of this ministry, God has shown me the suffering of Mashiach Yeshua (Christ Jesus), our Messiah Savior, when He said, Pay attention, you peoples from afar. Yahovah called Me from the womb, from the inmost parts of My mother, He named Me. He made My mouth like a sharp sword; In the shadow of His hand He hid me; And He made me a sharpened arrow. He hid Me in His quiver. He said to Me, ‘You are My Servant, O Israel, in whom I will show My glory.’

But I said, ‘I have labored in vain. I spent my strength for nothing and futility. Yet, surely, my justice is with Yahovah and my reward is with my God’
(Isaiah/Yeshayahu 49:1-4).

And so, truly, though my labor is cast off and forgotten by most of God’s people, my reward and justice is with Yahovah El Elyon, God Most High. I walk as His priest no different than God’s apostles and prophets of old. My work and God’s guidance and affirmations for what I teach speak for themselves, yet the people stand far off.

I have queried to you, Can the devil move the heavens, stars, whole galaxies, millions of people, and many, many things throughout the earth and sky, manipulate our languages and numbers, embed the meaning of numbers in scripture, and many other things throughout the centuries and the ages to speak what is true? These wonders in the sky above and signs on the earth below embed and reinforce much of the teaching and guidance I give. Yet most give little heed and remain with their established communities of belief.

God has been patient. For thousands of years did He longsuffer the obstinance of His people, and now, two thousand years after Christ came, Judaism remains hard of heart despite very clear and direct proof given to them by God’s own words and embedded in His very name (see God's Offering to Judaism and The Names of God and Christ for more). I have spoken of Judaism’s need to come out of commands and ways that were made for an age long past.

They are stuck in what has died and continues to lead to death, but now, the Lord has me tell Christianity too, You, too, need to come out of what is to be destroyed. Many commands in the New Testament were for the building of the church and new age of Christ. But the end of the age is here and the church acts as if it has just begun, stuck and blind to what God wants now, just as the Jews remain blind and hard of heart.

God has prepared the Beast and Harlot Babylon for the end, and revealed that the church and all believing communities devoted to what is false and corrupt belong to that Mystery Harlot (see above for details). He has given much proof of the truth, multitudes of confirmations are on this page, yet God's people remain loyal to their own, to what is corrupt, and to what is not truly Him – those imposters of God, the Baals of this age, and their false teachings.

God said, "I spoke, but they did not listen. Instead, they did evil in My sight and chose what I did not delight" (Isaiah/ Yeshayahu 66:4)

That was addressed mainly to the Jews, who ignore God’s appeals and remain in their ways. But to His servants, those who tremble at His word, God continued to say, Your kinsmen who hate you, who exclude you on account of My name, Have said [sarcastically], ‘Let the Lord be glorified, so that we may see your joy.’ But they will be put to shame (Isaiah/Yeshayahu 66:5).

And so, God has brought Israel and Judaism to shame in our days, as He did through the ages. The Hamas attack on October 7th and Israel’s collateral damage upon Palestinian civilians in their counterattack look like savage revenge, not any different than the savagery of Hamas. The Israeli military even killed Israeli hostages held by Hamas who were abandoned and clearly not a threat, waving a white surrender flag[7.3, 7.4]. The world sees this and hardens against Israel and Judaism, but God’s word is fulfilled; They will be put to shame.

But my brethren, don’t you know you are part of spiritual Israel? And you, too, turn away from God? His words will fulfill for those who act against God as Israel and Judaism do. I was clear on this when I went through the Book of Hosea where God testifies against His people, all of them, including the brethren in Christ.

I have given my testimony; that God anointed me just as He did Jeremiah/Yirmiyahu, and haven’t I walked as such, giving the word of God to the people for their salvation, for their counsel, and for their rebuke?

But many say, This one must be crazy or some false prophet as all the rest, but this is what God gives to you.

Last week, I noticed NASA put out a new photo of Cassiopeia A from the James Webb Telescope (left image below)[7.1]. It is a supernova remnant, the glowing aftermath of the explosion of a giant star. I couldn’t help notice that it looked like an exploded heart mixed with a virus. The two prominent spikes on its upper left and its spherical shape reminded me of a virus, while the article’s description of “shards of glass” reminded me of imagery I used years ago for a broken heart, and furthermore, the upper right part of Cassiopeia A looks very much like a gaping hole from an explosion which I envisioned in a heart.

I was intrigued by these details, and knew the Lord had more to say in it, but the message was not clear, so I waited on the Lord. It did not take long, because the next day I saw a National Geographic article about how COVID-19 affects the heart long after the person recovers from the infection[7.2]. Their title image (right image below) was very prominent, but moreover, I noticed how the heart’s upper right had a large open area that matched Cassiopeia A’s gaping hole. The resemblance is no stretch of the imagination.

Below are more telescope images of Cassiopeia A alongside photos of actual coronaviruses and COVID-19. Here too, it is no stretch of the imagination to see similarities. God gave me physical proof of what I felt by the Spirit – Cassiopeia A was a mix of a virus and an exploded heart.

I knew this had to do with the COVID-19 pandemic and speaking as God’s servant. And in fact, I remember it was at the beginning of the pandemic that I started speaking more like God’s servants of old.

After I realized this, the Lord had me look at stellar configurations of Cassiopeia A. So I went to Stellarium, an astronomy program, and set the location to Jerusalem and the time a couple of months before the COVID-19 pandemic began in 2020. I watched how the stars moved but saw that Cassiopeia A did not do anything interesting. It simply kept going in a circle above the northern sky.

But then I looked at what the planets were doing around Cassiopeia A, and found some interesting conjunctions that happened earlier this year. On August 15 to 18, Mars and Mercury were very close to each other. And in October, Mars and Mercury came close again and on October 29th, they overlapped.

I knew God was saying something happened on these dates. What I found was, during the first conjunction in August, I made public rebuke and gave God’s word to the Israeli Rabbinate, and also soon after, I publicly gave God’s Offering to Judaism.

And in the days leading up to the next conjunction in October, I was giving many public comments to repeat God’s offering to leave Judaism and speak at The Times of Israel (see Israel, If only you knew what made for peace, The significance of Israel under attack on Shemini Atzeret 2023, Update to God's Alarm).

In most of these statements, I spoke as a prophet for God and not simply as a minister, pastor, or priest.

What you can see with the conjunctions of Mars, which stands for war, and Mercury, which stands for messenger, is that God is giving you external, physical proof of my anointed station. I did not try to make announcements on these dates to prove anything, nor did I know anything about these conjunctions, but I simply spoke as the Lord directed me in response to what other people were saying and publishing at the time. God has worked many people and the stars to affirm I truly was anointed and speak for Him, walking in war (Mars) against His people as His prophet (Mercury).

May you heed and take what I say seriously. Seek the Lord while He may be found. His people have sinned a very long time. Though, their souls were cleansed by Christ, their garments are impure and filthy. God spread His hands all day long to His rebellious people, towards the path of righteousness, but they follow their own thoughts and continue in their own ways.

God is bringing judgment upon all the peoples and nations and He will test and try His people with fire. There will be no one to comfort those who remain in the Harlot Babylon, but God makes a way of holiness, as I have spoken, and Yahovah Sabaoth (of hosts) will comfort and protect those who leave what is to be destroyed and pursue what is right.

Details of Japan Airlines Crash Speak For God 1/4/2024
When I first heard about the collision of two Japanese airplanes on Tuesday, January 2nd, I felt God had a spiritual analogy in it. God had worked other tragic events and connected numbers with them to speak the truth before, like mass shootings, such as at Uvalde and the guidance with 43 and 44 in an update here. God has given a huge amount of guidance with numbers through this ministry (see The Meaning of Numbers for more), and in the last update, I also pointed out again how God moves the world and universe to speak and show the truth, as well.

Having more to tell with the Japan Airlines crash goes with all of God’s wonders in the sky above and signs on the earth below (Joel/Yoel 2:30; Acts 2:19) that I’ve been sharing, so after seeing more details about the crash, I can tell you how it goes with God’s Alarm. It goes with the parable Apostle Paul shared about...
the builders who build upon the foundation of Christ in 1 Corinthians 3.
According to the grace of God which was given to me, like a wise master builder I laid a foundation, and another is building on it. But each person must be careful how he builds on it. For no one can lay a foundation other than the one which is laid, which is Yeshua Mashiach [Jesus Christ].

Now if anyone builds on the foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, or straw, each person’s work will become evident, for the day will show it because it will be revealed with fire, and the fire itself will test each person’s work of what sort it is. If anyone’s work which they built on remains, they will receive a reward. If anyone’s work is burned up, they will suffer loss, but they themselves will be saved, yet only as through fire.

(1 Corinthians 3:10-15)
In the last update, I said God will try His people with fire, which you should recognize going with the end of Paul’s parable, as well as going with the Japan Airlines crash, where everyone on the passenger jet escaped before the airplane was completely engulfed by fire. I have also referred to this trying by fire in rebukes to false teachers when I warned them about continuing in false teaching.

Paul said, Be careful how you build on the foundation of Christ and the gospel he laid, because material of varying kind, from high quality (gold, silver, gems) down to poor quality (straw or stubble), can be put upon that foundation. Through the millennia, the church has used all sorts of good and poor materials to build upon the truth, but as more and more time went by, the high quality precious metals and gemstones quickly became scarce when the church lost the leadership of the first apostles and began using more and more false teaching and darkness to build with.

But that was God’s plan as I stated before, to let Satan corrupt the church because God planted the seeds of The Beast, the seed of animals, along with the seed of Man (Jeremiah 31:27/Yirmiyahu 31:26), which was the Messiah Christ, just as He prophesied for the New Covenant Age. And that seed of beast or The Beast, contains the church, which you should already know if you read God’s Alarm.

So today, God’s kingdom is full of those bad seeds and stubble which are only now gathered at the end of the age to be burned (Matthew 13:39-40). God left the church and other believing sects to grow through the age with all this bad material because it was His plan to let the weeds grow with the wheat. I explained this when I talked about the Parable of Tares/Weeds and Wheat in the True Gospel and Light Within. And so, all believing sects from Christian to Judaism to Islam have flourished up to this day despite being built with so much that is poor, false, and of the devil.

But God has had me speak on the right path to leave the corruption of believing sects so that you would come to safety at the end of the age. The ways and institutions of the Harlot Babylon must be left. So to illustrate what has been said about trial by fire and the testing of the building material used by God’s people, the Lord shows how the Japan Airlines crash symbolizes His people in Harlot ministries.

The details of the crash are that a passenger jet was cleared to land on a runway where a Coast Guard airplane was supposed to wait for clearance to take-off[8.1, 8.2]. The Coast Guard pilot, though, thought he was cleared to take off and moved his plane right into the path of the landing passenger jet. The Coast Guard plane exploded on contact, killing the whole crew except for the pilot, while the passenger plane caught fire but remained intact enough for everyone on board to escape.

To understand the spiritual analogy with this crash, you also need to understand that God categorizes spiritual ministry into “civilian” and “military” categories. The passenger jet goes with civilian ministry, which focuses more on typical community ministries, like pastoring and teaching in churches and synagogues. The Coast Guard airplane goes with ministries more focused on “military” and “mission” activities, like gospel expansion, spiritual warfare, and combating what they believe to be false teachings. In this case, it goes with missionary-type of believers who work to help others in need since the Coast Guard plane was going to help earthquake victims in the recent Japanese earthquake[8.1, 8.3].

The Coast Guard plane, which was a Bombardier Dash-8 numbered JA722A, moved onto the runway when it was not supposed to, likely because, the runway “stoplights” were not functioning since December 27th[8.2, 8.4]. These are lights that tell the pilots to wait, but since they were not functioning and the pilot said he thought he was approved to takeoff, he proceeded onto the runway when the passenger jet was landing.

What’s interesting about this is not just the spiritual “military” links with the Coast Guard crew and mission, but also that the airplane was a Dash-8, which I see as “Run to renewal” because 8 means renewal and resurrection, and in its number, 722A, I see as 7 and 22, which translates to Fullness and God’s number (7) with Carnal, Worldly, and Excessively Romantic Thinking (22). So 7 and 22 go with how many ministries are very full of enthusiasm and eagerness for God but also full of carnal and worldly thinking that comes from false teaching and spiritual imposters of God, which often makes believers run to do God’s work (DASH-8), even though God did not really approve of their missions.

When I talked about rushing to help the afflicted in tribulations before (see Reminder to keep perspective), I noted to be careful that you make sure God wants you to help, because these people are under God’s judgment and you can end up on the wrong side with God by helping in the wrong ways. This is illustrated in the crash by everyone but the pilot dying on the Coast Guard plane.

But what about the passenger jet, which goes with more civilian-type ministries? I saw the airplane was numbered JA13XJ on its wing, which immediately made me recall work with God’s Hebrew names and how most of the church have it wrong by using and pronouncing them with ‘J’ sounds instead of ‘Y’. JA can be another mistranslated version of God’s shortened Hebrew name, Yah.

With the rest of the jet’s number, I saw JA-13-X-J, which translates to Ja God’s promises (13) with eXtra Joy, which characterizes much of the popular church that has God and teaching wrong but also loves to rapture in God’s promises and worship.

Everyone got off the passenger jet before it was completely destroyed by fire. These survivors, as well as the pilot of the Coast Guard plane, the only survivor of that plane, represent believers and ministry leaders in 1 Corinthians 3:13-15 who suffered loss after their work and what they built on top of Christ’s foundation was tested by fire. Their ministries (the airplanes), full of false teachings and the following after what is not God – the poor building materials of 1 Corinthians 3 – were completely destroyed but they themselves were saved as through fire.

This refers to how the saved in Christ will remain saved in eternity, but as God continues to test and try believing communities of every sect everywhere with all the tribulations that are here and coming, all sects built with lies and darkness, which define the Harlot Babylon, as I stated before, will be destroyed. Their souls will be safe in Christ even if there bodily persons are not and their churches, synagogues, mosques, and ministries are destroyed. That is God’s meaning in the person alone being saved as through fire in 1 Corinthians 3:15.

This Japan Airlines crash is an affirmation of what I’ve been saying about people and ministries that remain in the Harlot Babylon. Can you dispute all the spiritual and numeric links in it? Truly, God is bringing judgment to them, but don’t let the miracle of everyone on the passenger jet being saved fool you into complacency to ignore my instruction, nor let other instances of Harlot ministries in the tribulations of our times being saved from disaster, such as the Catholic Church in the Lahaina, Hawaii wildfire being one of the only buildings escaping destruction last year[8.5].

God has been giving warning to His people, but His patience is ending. I noted in the discussion of Hosea, there will be a time when God will completely turn away from the Harlot and He will not give help through the Baals who impersonate Him and the saints and use their names.

God gives guidance with the 2024 Solar Eclipse 4/4/2024
Updated 4/9/2024

There’s been a lot of talk about the coming total solar eclipse on Monday, April 8, 2024. As with most eclipses, there’s been a lot of talk about this eclipse, and as with most eclipses, there’s also a lot of speculation about what it could mean as far as an omen and spiritual guidance goes. After all, God did set the stars, sun, and moon in the heavens with scheduled timings and alignments so that they would be signs to mankind, for He said, Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and they will be signs and for seasons, and for days and years (Genesis/Bereishit 1:14).

I’ve talked about stellar alignments and their meanings before (for more, see Predestined and the Yom Teruah/Rosh Hashana 2023 Sermon). Unfortunately however, nearly all the public talk I see about this coming eclipse is only speculation and spiritual guidance that comes from dark influences. Some even say it is not the moon that will eclipse the sun, but some other body or spiritual planet. Stay away from people proclaiming such things or who give interpretations based on occult spiritualism and false teachings, for they are fallen in their ways and to the spiritual practices that God says we should not consult – of spiritualists, mediums, and diviners (Leviticus/Vayikra 19:31, 20:6-7; Isaiah/Yeshayahu 8:19), of whom modern day astrologists and fortune tellers are of the same sort. Instead we must consult God and go to His servants whom He has anointed and approved.

Normally I do not pay much mind to eclipses of any kind, and this coming eclipse was the same. But sometimes the Lord has pointed them out to me and gave guidance with them. I talked about such guidance with lunar eclipses in my own testimony (see Predestined for more). It showed how the church blocked out the truth and God’s true guidance with her worldly interpretations.
I was going to just let this coming eclipse come and go, but the other day, the Lord had me notice some dreams that directly link to it, and of course, one way God speaks to us is through dreams. There are many examples in the Bible, but here too, most people speculate and get much false guidance to interpret them.

So we must remember that interpretation belongs to the Lord (2 Peter 1:20-21; Genesis/Bereishit 40:8), which does come through His anointed servants, such as Joseph and Daniel who interpreted some important dreams for people in the Bible. No others were able to interpret them correctly, and similarly, God has used me for other people’s spiritual guidance which they could not understand, including dreams. See John Dau’s Dream and Gems That Prove Destiny, True Love, and Christ Are Real for examples.

Some symbolism in solar eclipses is obvious, such as, they almost always come with or foretell a bad event, because the blocking out of the sun goes with the sun’s warmth and life-giving energy being taken away. The ancients often interpreted solar eclipses this way and imagined serpents, wolves, and frogs eating the sun during an eclipse. There have also been recorded events that coincided with the bad omen of solar eclipses, such as a 632 AD eclipse coincided with the death of Islam’s prophet Mohammad’s son, Ibrahim[9.1] and in 585 BC a solar eclipse during a battle in present day Turkey made the Lydians and Medes stop fighting[9.2].

Likewise, the two dreams that came to my attention go with the bad omen symbolism of solar eclipses, and after reviewing them, I see they go with another dream I had shared in this thread last year. The new eclipse dreams were from two different people but were very similar to each other, and both go with the dream I shared in November 2023 because it goes with the theme of people dying continually. That dream was given to me by a testimony in 2022.

One of the new eclipse dreams was from a William Barnes who said he got it in 2020, and the other was from a Jonathan Conley who did not give a time for his dream, but said it was like Barnes’s dream except it added some details.

Barnes described his dream as, “A dream I had in 2020 about this eclipse that’s currently about to happen [on April 8, 2024]... basically the eclipse kept happening, but the spot never changed, but it was going day and night repeatedly… [there was another] sun in the distance… I was looking over at a hill and when [the eclipse] reached its climax, it stayed there covered up [the sun], but everything else kept moving at an accelerated speed, hence the sun in the background… kept rising and setting, [which] is why I said it was day and night. The eclipse made the sky stay dark, but the sun in the background kept trying to light the sky when it rose.”

Then Conley said his dream added, “Everything went black and then at the end, a glimpse of gold light came through.”

Barnes also shared a sketch he made of the dream, which also had a waning crescent moon and the planet Saturn in the sky. Below is my more detailed depiction of his sketch.

And here is an animated depiction of the two dreams combined into one…

As I said, the eclipse dreams matched the theme of another dream I shared before. That dream showed people drowning over and over in flood waters while the person who shared the dream was spared. This continual death goes with the eclipse dreams because the waning crescent moon represents death as the sun is continually eclipsed as the days continue.

This perpetual eclipse represents how the world and believers, as well, block out God’s guidance which gives the light and life-giving nurture and protection that is needed. Believers often think they are following God in their lives and getting all the blessing and protection they could possibly get, but how little do they know that they follow much darkness from false teachings and guidance that is not truly from God. All the bad things happening in believers’ lives attests to the fact this is true and that they continue to live in sin.

This spiritual eclipse has also been happening for years as most believers have rejected the teaching and guidance that God gives in this ministry, especially in this thread which tells His people to leave the Harlot Babylon, because it would have them leave their beloved churches and institutions.

But despite much scoffing and rejection by the people, God has been patient and has been trying to reach them with the guidance here for the past few years so that His people would have the blessings and protection they need. But even God’s patience has an end - Everything goes dark in the eclipse dream while only a little bit of golden sunlight appears.

This complete darkness represents the very worse times at the end – that time, times and half a time I’ve spoken of at the beginning of God’s Alarm. It is the period when the final antichrist is in power over the world and the worst of the Great Tribulation will happen.

This image also goes with the other dream where the person is spared from the death of continual floods. These visions do not represent literal floods, though flooding from weather and tsunamis is a part of the tribulations of our time, the continual flooding in the dream represents all the many tribulations that are coming in our days. They will get worse until everything gets so bad as to be unbearable, which is represented by everything going black.

However, there is a little bit of sunlight that appears from the sun, and in the other dream, the person is spared. When I shared that dream, I said this person was spared because they stood on me and stayed with this ministry’s teaching and guidance. I protected them, and likewise, the little bit of sunlight in the darkness also represents God’s guidance from this ministry to leave the Harlot Babylon and come to the further righteousness that is needed to be protected in the worst that is coming.

Then there is Saturn in the eclipse dream. It’s full meaning is not given at this time, but it clearly points to what the planet is doing during at the time of this year’s eclipse. Saturn actually is in the sky near the sun and moon, off to the right like pictured in the dream but lower on the horizon in real life, so Barnes’s 2020 dream does depict this 2024 eclipse. Below is a screen snapshot from the astronomy program, Stellarium, looking at the eclipse during totality.

Mars is also very near to Saturn at the time of the eclipse, so combined with the dimming of the sky during the eclipse, a star where Saturn and Mars are could become visible (Venus is also near but it is closer to the sun and may not be visible during the eclipse). What do Saturn and Mars symbolize? Mars usually symbolizes war and God has used it to symbolize just that as I shared in the December 22, 2023 update here.

But Saturn is mysterious. The name is from a Roman God of time, abundance, wealth, agriculture, and periodic renewal and liberation[9.3]. In the case of this spiritual guidance, though, Saturn represents the Harlot Babylon - the church and all believing sects who remain in the sins I talked about in this thread.

This symbolism is appropriate because who brought about our modern calendars, referring to “time”? The church. Who is exceeding wealthy and abundant? The church and other believing sects. Who is symbolized by wheat and plant growth (agriculture)? The church. And who has “periodic renewal and liberation”? The church and other believing sects, because though they get renewal with Christ and God in their faith, and Christians are liberated by the laws of Christ, these things are often “periodic” or not permanent because believers also continue to walk in sin and false teachings.

So Saturn in this guidance not only refers to this year’s eclipse, but also to the death of the Harlot Babylon because the waning moon in the dream represents death, and remember, the Harlot will be destroyed with great violence, "for her sins have piled up as high as heaven, and God has remembered her offenses… So will Babylon, the great city, be thrown down with violence, and will never be found again" (Revelation 18:5, 18:21).

Again, God has given guidance through multiple people to urge believers everywhere to heed the warnings and instruction in His Alarm here and support this ministry. How far off will you stand as the days of darkness continue on?

Update 4/5/2024 - A Sign Of Jonah
After I shared this post yesterday, someone noted to me that this solar eclipse also had the Sign of Jonah/Yonah in it and there were six or seven cities named Nineveh in the path of totality. This made sense to me because it goes directly with the guidance I shared - that it was God's warning of judgment and call to change (the main focus of God's Alarm), so obviously also goes with the story of Jonah, the prophet, in the Bible whom God sent to Nineveh to warn of impending judgment.

Of course, I needed to double-check this information, so I looked at the constellations during the eclipse, which I did not look at before. The Sign of Jonah was indeed close to the eclipse, as you can see the constellation Cetus, The Whale, is to the left of the sun (Stellarium screenshot below).

However, six or seven cities named Nineveh in the path of totality sounded excessive, but if true, would be a very significant sign from the Lord that a Sign of Jonah and real warning is included with the eclipse. To double-check this claim, I found a detailed map of the path of totality from NASA[9.5, 9.6] (reduced image below). This path is where the shadow of the moon covers the land when totality happens, which is when the moon is centered on the sun and covers it. This is the region where people will be able to see a total or perfect solar eclipse. People outside this area of totality will only be able to see a partial eclipse.

Next I found the places named Nineveh in the United States[9.7, 9.8] and double-checked their locations on Google Maps with the NASA map. This is what I found:
  • Nineveh, Indiana, an unincorporated community (very small town) is in totality about 10 miles SE of Indianapolis, Indiana
  • Nineveh, Missouri, Adair County, an unincorporated community is NOT in totality. It is far NW of totality
  • Nineveh Township, Lincoln County, Missouri is NOT in totality. It is NW of it
  • Nineveh, New York, an unincorporated hamlet (very small town) is NOT in totality. It is SE of it
  • Nineveh, Pennsylvania, an unincorporated community is NOT in totality. It is SE of it
  • Nineveh, Virginia, an unincorporated community is NOT in totality. The whole state of Virginia is very far from totality
  • Nineveh, Texas near Hopewell, TX very near totality, but outside according to Snopes[9.8]. I highlight it here because it may still be close enough to perceive a perfect eclipse
  • Nineveh, Ohio, NW of Dayton, Ohio is in totality
So out of the eight places, I found three could be in totality, which is still a decent number of matches for God's Sign of Jonah. And remember that God placed the stars in the constellation Cetus to be close during the eclipse, which is also a significant alignment. And furthermore, Cetus is also called the Sea Monster[9.4] and when I first talked about the eclipse, I referred to a dream from a previous update. That update also talked about a Sea Monster, the Leviathan in scripture, which symbolizes the dark spiritual forces that reign with false teachings and false spiritual guidance - things I often speak about and against and they are also big reasons why God's people live in much sin (see Fulfillment of Isaiah 28 and Light Within for more about Leviathan).

With all these extra components of a real Sign of Jonah in the solar eclipse, they only further reinforce the meaning of the bad omen I talked about. God is giving very strong warning to people everywhere, especially to believers, that judgment is coming to them, like it was coming for ancient Nineveh. They were saved because the people of Nineveh believed in God and made effort to change (Jonah/Yonah 3:5-8). But today, unlike the people of Nineveh, who wholly repented and changed to avoid God's judgment when the prophet went about the city (Jonah/Yonah 3:1-10), most believers reject today's warnings from this ministry and remain loyal to what is bringing judgment in our days. I pray you do not have stopped ears and hard hearts to see the truth, in the name of Mashiach Yeshua. Amen.

4/8/2024 Post Eclipse Comments - More signs from God
In Minnesota in the upper Midwest United States, it was very cloudy for the entire time of the eclipse, but in the path of totality there was a lot of good viewing even though many locations were overcast with clouds, like depicted in William Barnes’s dream. I watched live news coverage of the eclipse happening at various locations as the moon’s shadow traveled over North America, and the overall reaction to it was over joyous exuberance.

Many people even wept at the experience. People said it was profoundly impactful – very spiritual if they had faith, while others said it gave them a deeper connection to the universe and the feeling of being very small and having no control over larger matters around them. Some even expressed annoyance that it was over so quickly, because the experience felt so amazing and the sight was so beautiful.

As I saw the typical reactions, I noted that is exactly how most believers feel about their connections to God in their communities of faith, whether Christian, Jewish, or Muslim – they love the feeling of connection, and of shared experience and rapture, while they downplay or ignore anything negative. They treat it like a big party while within the events, God is trying to tell them there is huge trouble because of their focuses.

The initial update here was to show God’s message in this eclipse of very bad things to come, but most people focus on and joy over the obvious and superficial things, just like they do in their churches, synagogues, and mosques.

Solar eclipses are uncommon events that show how God created the sun, earth, moon, and their respective sizes, orbits, and distances from each other to create perfect overshadowing of the sun. If any parameters were much different, like the moon was farther away or smaller in size, or its orbit around the earth was different, we wouldn’t have perfect eclipses. But God made them just right so they’d make the wondrous stellar shows that people are so sentimental over.

Scientists say it is all just an amazing, coincidental accident that everything works together to produce perfect solar eclipses. They simply can’t or don’t want to understand that God’s creations are no simple random accidents. But for believers, knowing God designed things perfectly, often gives them a heightened sense of awe, just like new believers often get a profound sense of wonderment when they realize all that we live in and all that we are, were made by God’s divine hand and plan. It is an exceptional moment in one’s life and that is the kind of reaction I saw with many people who witnessed the eclipse.

Great appreciation and wonder for God is a good thing, but ignoring everything else is not, and that was a very big reason the Lord anointed me to understand and teach the truth in much more detail and completeness. Love, joy, and wonder seemed good enough decades ago, but because people get so hooked on all the “feel good” of their communities of faith, they don’t mature from spiritual milk and reject most of God’s solid food, which has much truth and righteousness that is needed, especially for our times ahead when God’s patience to withhold judgment on the world is at an end.

And so, when I share negative prophecy and speak against the people, most overreact and become, not simply annoyed but absolutely irate that their wondrous moment is over, like people who shouted, NO! It cannot be over!, when their solar eclipse moment was done. Do you see, my people and brethren, what you hold more dear? You don’t want to leave your communities of faith or the teachings and traditions you learned and love despite being shown where they come from or how wrong they are.

God knows what you think, so as I watched the solar eclipse unfold at different locations, I saw God included even more signs for the people; of the truth, hidden from understanding because He gave it only to one to profess His guidance while most of the world awes over the natural spectacle in more superficial ways.

Remember, too, to keep your focuses in check, for God said of idolatry, Be careful not to raise your eyes to heaven and look at the sun, the moon, and the stars, all the host of heaven, and allow yourself to be drawn away and worship them and serve them, things which Yahovah your God has allotted to all the peoples under the whole heaven (Deuteronomy/ Devarim 4:19). So be like Job/Iyov who knew what was right and said, If I have looked at the sun when it shined, or the moon going in splendor and my heart was secretly enticed, and my hand threw a kiss from my mouth [to them], that too would have been a guilty deed calling for judgment, for I would have denied God above (Job/Iyov 31:26-28).

We see that if you hold natural things of wonderment too dear, then it is wrong. And so likewise, if you uphold spiritual feelings of connection and rapture too dear, this too is wrong. For you hold what is superficial more dear than our one true God, who is telling you that, yes, though He is there in your worship and communities of faith, so also is much darkness and things that are not God which you love more, because you refuse to leave them and reject the truth. When you do that, you reject God.

And so, to show that what I shared about this year’s solar eclipse is true, I will note that William Barnes’s dream was true to this year’s event. Some may think that because his sketch showed Saturn on the same horizontal line as the sun and moon while I noted it was lower on the horizon when I looked at it in an astronomy program, that his dream or my interpretations were off as well.

However, if we look further, we can see my interpretations of God’s message here was not “off,” nor was Barnes’s dream. The Stellarium screenshot of the eclipse I shared in the initial post was centered at Columbus, Ohio near the time of totality. I picked Columbus because it was in the region of totality and it was where the testimony of the continual flood dream came from.

Why did Barnes show Saturn straight to the right of the sun and moon, though? The stars and planets move like the sun and moon do, so they are in different locations at different times, and in different locations along the path of totality, the time of the eclipse is different. Is there any time or place where Saturn is where Barnes saw it in his dream?

Yes. I saw it inadvertently when I double-checked stellar configurations for all the locations I saw ABC News reporting the eclipse from. Everything aligns as shown in Barnes’s dream at Mazatlan, Mexico, the first major location on the continent where the news broadcast the eclipse from (totality hit the west coast first, then moved northeast). You can see below that Stellarium shows Saturn, as well as Venus, Mars, and Mercury in a more horizontal line with the sun and moon during totality at Mazatlan (the eclipse is the bright spot with dark dot in the center; Mercury is just left of the eclipse while Venus is to the right and Saturn and Mars are together farther right).

And what’s very interesting about this alignment is that all the planets lining up with the eclipse talk about prophesy or giving God’s message (Mercury - messenger) about the bad focuses people, especially God’s people (Saturn), have on things like love and rapture (Venus – passionate and romantic love), as well as God and Christ (He is called the Morning Star (2 Peter 1:19; Revelation 22:16), while Venus is also called the Morning Star), which all goes with God’s warning against His people and their destruction (Mars - war) if they remain in the ways of the Harlot Babylon. And furthermore, the Sign Of Jonah in Cetus I talked about is just under the eclipse, while the sun, moon, and planets are all on a horizon-like line which goes with God’s message telling of the future (what is on the horizon).

If that wasn’t enough to say God has backed me up on what I said, I also noticed another eclipse sign during totality in Russellville, Arkansas. This was a place that scheduled a mass wedding for the eclipse for over 300 couples[9.9]. I immediately understood that to go with the theme of focusing on love (Venus), but when it comes to truly understanding God and the truth, overfocus on love will not lead you in the right directions, because I saw four bright “compass points” during totality in Russellville that were obviously not quite right (see eclipse inset in screenshot of ABC News clip below; there are four brighter compass point dots around the sun and moon).

Praise the Lord that He has given even more proof of the truth I’ve been proclaiming. All these small details were hidden to most people, but you can see God still made it a point to keep reaffirming His Alarm and that I speak the truth. All this is truly a “Sign of Jonah” as Mashiach Yeshua said to scoffers who wanted Him to show them a miraculous sign that He had authority over the laws of God.

He replied, An evil and adulterous generation craves a sign; and so no sign will be given to it except the sign of Jonah the prophet (Matthew 12:39, 16:4; Luke 11:29). He gave the faithless nothing except the prophecy that He would be in the heart of the earth like Jonah was in belly of the sea monster for three days and three nights (Matthew 12:40). Christ was referring to dying on the cross and then being resurrected three days later.

But isn’t it interesting that Christ was crucified on a Friday afternoon and resurrected on Sunday morning, which means only two nights passed before He was resurrected while He said He would be in the heart of the earth for three days and three nights? Scoffers say God doesn’t make sense and contradicts Himself. How can a God of truth lie? Therefore the Bible is nonsense.

I explain that contradiction elsewhere (see Holy Week in The Lord’s Holidays and Sabbaths), but here, I will note that God also only included 2 or about 3, by my count, places named Nineveh in the path of totality out of 8 places. It would have been a BIG sign to rebuke scoffers if all eight places named Nineveh went with the Sign of Jonah in this eclipse, but God never wanted to make everything obvious, nor did He want scoffers and the faithless to have an easy time with the truth.

The right heart is a valued virtue to God and so is faith. Faith is also as virtue of righteousness, but also, the number three very much goes with Christ; He said He’d be in the earth for 3 days and nights, He was resurrected in 3 days, as well as other things go with Christ and the number 3 (see 3 in The Meaning of Numbers for more), so I see 3 Ninevehs in totality as very legitimate for God’s Sign of Jonah in the eclipse.

So whether or not you trust or believe my anointment in God, I still hope you see the truth just as I’ve been speaking. God has given you more than enough already, just as He did when He first came with many signs and miracles. How much do you need?

I will end this with just one more note of truth to the eclipse’s Sign of Jonah going with the fight against the forces of darkness that found the Harlot Babylon. Did you notice when I quoted the Lord stated He’d be in the earth for 3 days and 3 nights, that He also said Jonah was in the belly of a “sea monster”? That goes with the Leviathan sea monster of scripture which represents the enemy corrupting God’s people (mentioned in the last update of this post). This is also important to understand with the omen and God’s Alarm because the Harlot Babylon not only remains loyal to the darkness of Leviathan, but God will also "destroy" Leviathan along with the Harlot. I talk about this in the God’s Alarm thread.

So God’s words also back-up the Sign of Jonah in the eclipse. And if you think I skewed translation for my benefit by using “sea monster” instead of “whale,” you need to know it is a valid translation because the Greek word there is ketos, which means “sea monster, whale, or huge fish.” And the constellation Cetus is known as either the Whale or Sea Monster, as I said before. Cetus is near the eclipse throughout the path of totality, as are Saturn, Mars, Venus, and Mercury. Many people even said they saw Venus and other planets when the sky darkened during totality.
