How to Become Saved by Immersion Water Baptism through the Belief in the Perfect Blood Atonement Provided By Elohim Through His Sinless Son, Yahusha/ Yahushua Messiah (Mashiach)

If you died today or “tomorrow,” will you then be in some sort of state of non-existence? Love, hate and the question of where all matter came from that exists have not been properly answered in the context of a belief in a non-created universe. If there is a Creator, then, assuming He is not schizophrenic and opposes Himself, there must be at least one opponent, since there is true evil in the world. Satan is the enemy of all souls, with Hell created for Satan and one third of the messengers of Elohim who followed him in rebellion against the Most High El [Yeshayahu (Isaiah)14:3-27.] Being perfect, Elohim required a perfect sacrifice in order for any flesh to be redeemed, as Scripture records in Romans 3:10-26:

As it has been written, “There is none righteous, no, not one! There is no one who is understanding, there is none who is seeking Elohim. They all have turned aside, they have together become worthless. There is none who does good, no, not one.” “Their throat is an open tomb, with their tongues they have deceived,” “The poison of adders is under their lips,” “Whose mouth is filled with cursing and bitterness.” “Their feet are swift to shed blood, ruin and wretchedness are in their ways, and the way of peace they have not known.” “There is no fear of Elohim before their eyes.”

19. And we know that whatever the Torah says, it says to those who are in the Torah, so that every mouth might be stopped and all the world come under the judgment before Elohim. Therefore by the works of the Torah no flesh shall be declared right before Him, for by the Torah is the knowledge of sin. But now, apart from the Torah, a righteousness of Elohim has been revealed, being witnessed by the Torah and the Prophets, and the righteousness of Elohim is through belief in Yahusha Anointed One [Editor’s Note: Hebrew — Yahusha] Messiah to all and on all who believe. For there is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the esteem of Elohim, being declared right, without paying, by His favour through the redemption which is in Messiah Yahusha Anointed One, whom Elohim set forth as an atonement, through belief in His blood, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His tolerance Elohim had passed over the sins that had taken place before, to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, that He is righteous and declares righteous the one who has belief in Yahusha Anointed One.

Yahusha Messiah was sinless, yet He, Himself, was baptized by John the baptizer, whom was immersing people in the Jordan River to “wash” away their sins as recorded in Scripture in Yohanan (John) 3:1-36 and Yohanan 1:1-37 below:

Yohanan (John in “Christian Bibles”) 3:1-36 And there was a man of the Pharisees, Nakdimon was his name, a ruler of the Yahudim. This one came to Yahusha Anointed One by night and said to Him, “Rabbi, we know that You are a teacher come from Elohim, for no one is able to do these signs You do if Elohim is not with him.” Yahusha Anointed One answered and said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born from above, he is unable to see the reign of Elohim.” Nakdimon said to Him, “How is a man able to be born when he is old? Is he able to enter into his mother’s womb a second time and be born?”

3. Yahusha Anointed Oneanswered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he is unable to enter into the reign of Elohim. That which has been born of the flesh is flesh and that which has been born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You have to be born from above.’ “The Spirit breathes where it wishes and you hear the sound of it, but do not know where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who has been born of the Spirit.” Nakdimon answered and said to Him, “How is it possible for this to take place?”

10. Yahusha Anointed One answered and said to him, “Are you a teacher of Yisra’el and do not know this? Truly, truly, I say to you, We speak what We know and witness what We have seen and you do not receive Our witness. If you do not believe when I spoke to you about earthly matters, how are you going to believe when I speak to you about the heavenly matters? And no one has gone up into the heavens except He who came down from the heavens — the Son of Adam. And as Mosheh lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so the Son of Adam has to be lifted up, so that whoever is believing in Him should not perish but possess everlasting life.

16. “For Elohim so loved the world that He gave His only brought-forth Son, so that everyone who believes in Him should not perish but possess everlasting life. For Elohim did not send His Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. He who believes in Him is not judged, but he who does not believe is judged already, because he has not believed in the Name of the only brought-forth Son of Elohim. And this is the judgment, that the light has come into the world and men loved the darkness rather than the light, for their works were wicked. For everyone who is practicing evil matters hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed. But the one doing the truth comes to the light, so that his works are clearly seen, that they have been wrought in Elohim.”

22. After this, Yahusha Anointed One and His taught ones came into the land of Yahudah and He remained there with them and was immersing. And Yahanan was also immersing in Ayim near Salim, because there was plenty of water there. And they were coming and were being immersed, for Yohanan had not yet been put into prison. Then a dispute arose between some of Yohanan’s taught ones and the Yahudim about cleansing, and they came to Yohanan and said to him, “Rabbi, He who was with you beyond the Yarden, to who you have witnessed, see, He is immersing and all are coming to Him!”

27. Yohanan answered and said, “No man is able to receive any matter unless it is given to him from the heavens. You yourselves are witness for me that I said, ‘I am not the Messiah but I am sent ahead of Him.’ He that has the bride is the bridegroom, but the friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly because of the voice of the bridegroom. so this joy of mine is complete. It is right for Him to increase, but me to decrease. He who comes from above is over all, he who is from the earth is of the earth and speaks of the earth. He who comes from the heavens is over all.

32. And what He has seen and heard, that He witnesses. He who receives His witness has set his seal that Elohim is true. For He whom Elohim has sent speaks the Words of Elohim, for Elohim does not give the Spirit by measure. The Father loves the Son and has given all into His hand. He who believes in the Son possesses everlasting life but he who does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of Elohim remains on Him.”

—————————————————————————————————————————————————

Yohanan 1:1-37 In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with Elohim and the Word was Elohim. He was in the beginning with Elohim. All came to be through Him and without Him not even on came to be that came to be. In Him was life and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness and the darkness has not overcome it. There was a man sent from Elohim, whose name was Yohanan. This one came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all might believe through Him. He was not that Light, but that he might bear witness of that Light. He was the true Light, which enlightens every man, coming into the world. He was in the world and the world came to be through Him and the world did not know Him. He came to His own and His own did not receive Him. But as many as received Him, to them He gave the authority to become children of Elohim, to those believing in His Name, who were born, not of blood nor of the desire of flesh nor the desire of man, but of Elohim.

14. And the Word became flesh and pitched His tent among us and we saw His esteem, esteem as of an only brought-forth of a father, complete in favour and truth. Yohanan bore witness of Him and cried out, saying, “This was He of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me has become before me, because He was before me.'” And out of His completeness we all did receive and favour upon favour, for the Torah was given through Mosheh — the favour and the truth came through Yahusha Anointed One Messiah.

18. No one has ever seen Elohim. The only brought-forth Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He did declare. Now this was the witness of Yohanan when the Yahudim sent from Yerushalayim priests and Lewites to ask him, “Who are you?” And he confessed and did not deny, but confessed, “I am not the Messiah.” And they asked him, “What then, are you Eliyahu?” So he said, “I am not.” “Are you the Prophet?” And he answered, “No.”

23. He said, “I am a voice of one crying in the wilderness, ‘Make straight the way of Behold Nail Behold Hand =YAHUAH,’ as the prophet Yeshayahu said.” And those sent were of the Pharisees, and they asked him, saying, “Why then do you immerse if you are not the Messiah, nor Eliyahu, nor the Prophet?”

26. Yohanan answered them, saying, “I immerse in water, but in your midst stands One coming after me, who has become before me, whose sandal strap I am not worthy to loosen.” This took place in Beyth Anyah beyond the Yarden, where Yohanan was immersing.

29. The next day Yohanan saw Yahusha Anointed One coming toward him and said, “See, the Lamb of Elohim who takes away the sin of the world! This is He of whom I said, ‘After me comes a Man who has become before me, for He was before me.’ And I did not know Him, but that He might be revealed to Yisra’el, therefore I came immersing in water.”

32. And Yohanan bore witness, saying, “I have seen the Spirit coming down from heaven like a dove and remain on Him. And I did not know Him, but He who sent me to immerse in water said to me, ‘Upon whom you see the Spirit coming down and remaining on Him, this is He who immerses in the Set-Apart Spirit.’ And I have seen and have witnessed that this is the Son of Elohim.”

35. Again the following day, Yohanan was standing with two of his taught ones, and looking at Yahusha Anointed One walking, he said, “See the Lamb of Elohim!” And the two taught ones heard him speaking and they followed Yahusha Anointed One.

So, the question may arise? ‘Is baptism necessary for salvation?’ The answere is yes, according to Scripture. See here.

Another question may arise, such as, “Can I baptize myself?” Since Scripture says in Mattithyahu (Matthew) chapter 18 verse 19-20, “Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning any matter that they ask, it shall be dome for them by My Father in the heavens. For where two or three are gathered together in My Name, there I am in their midst,” then it seems to me that there only needs to be one other person present with you there, which is your baptizer. It doesn’t say that the other person has to be saved, though. So, you plausibly can have someone who is not a Believer, and who has not been saved, immerse someone else under water in the Name of Yahusha/Yahushua Messiah. Any water where the entire body (hair not necessary) can be immersed under water, like a large bath tub, swimming pool or any deep body of water like a river, lake or ocean, can be used.

The one who is baptizing shall put his hand upon the one he or she is baptizing and help them to completely immerse under water, saying, “I baptize you in the Name of Yahusha (or Yahushua) Messiah (or Savoir, Redeemer, Mashiach or Anointed One, but I do not recommend “Christ,” since this name is Greek and has as its main-root definition as another sovereign) and in the Name of the Father, YHWH (or YAHUAH or Elohim).

The U.S. Role in the Holocaust of the Jews; What Did She Know, When Did She Know it, Its Role W/ the MS St Louis, Its History of Antisemitism and Its Future With Barack Hussein Obama in the Lead

Let’s make sure we can understand history correctly: Martin Luther said many horrible things about Jews, which Hitler used against the Jews. And with the help of the Catholic Church, and the silence – or even open hostility – of most so-called “Christians” in the entire world, the world allowed Hitler and his allies to almost annihilate an entire race on a continent, thereby causing the rise of World War Two with an estimated up to 72 MILLION killed, 61 million on the Allies side, 11 million on the Axis side.

And also let their be absolutely, unequivocally and unmistakably no ambiguity around the perfect FACT that Yahuah sent His Son as a Jew to save the Jews FIRST, then sent Saul, who Yahusha renamed Paul, to give the Good News (Besorah) of redemption through the shed blood sacrifice of a perfect human being killed on a tree to become a curse, then rising from the dead after three days, And after being seen by men for many days, he ascended to heaven in a cloud to receive His esteem and sat down at the Right Hand of the Father to be eventually sent down one day to annihilate the anti-Messiah’s army of 200,000,000 and set up His Kingdom for 1,000 years, while Satan is locked away. Peace and justice shall reign supreme on Earth, like Messiah said.

Now we can get into the exact language YHWH used in connection with the promise he made to Abraham, whom Elohim renamed Israel, as it pertains to the blessings and curses of the Gentiles (all who are not Hebrew are Gentiles) by YHWH.

Genesis 12: 1 And YHWH said to Abram, “Go yourself out of your land, from your relatives and from your father’s house, to a land which I show you. 2 “And I shall make you a great nation and bless you and make your name great and you shall be a blessing. 3 And I shall bless those who bless you and curse him who curses you. And in you all the clans of the earth shall be blessed.”

This was none other than the beginning of the First Covenant, since afterwards it was Abraham that was willing to sacrifice his only child Isaac, conceived from his wife Sarah, as YHWH had instructed him to do, but was stopped by YHWH before he could slay the boy, Elohim making a covenant with Abram and his offspring that would eventually create the state of Yisra’el (Israel). Eventually, the New Covenant  would bless the entire world through the redemptive power of Yahusha, the Hebrew Messiah, who would welcome Hebrews and repentant Gentiles to share in the kingdom and esteem to come.

The Scriptures prophesy about Israel at the end of the age, which has come to pass since 1948, after Hitler tried to exterminate the Jews. The Jews DO have a homeland promised to them by YHWH, of which no other nation can claim now, or in the past.

Now let’s move to accurate testimony about Gentile Believers in Yahusha Messiah, and what kind of role they play in YHWH’s promises to Israel and about Yerushalayim (Jerusalem).

Romans 11:1 “I say then, has Elohim rejected His people? Let it not be! For I also am a Yisraelite, of the seed of Abrahim, of the tribe of Binyamin. 2 Elohim has not rejected His people whom he knew beforehand. 11 I say then, have they stumbled that they should fall? Let it not Be! But by their fall deliverance has come to the gentiles, to provoke them to jealousy. 12 And if their fall is riches for the world and their failure riches for the gentiles, how much mor their completeness! 13 For I speak to you the gentiles, inasmuch as I am an emissary to the gentiles…” 16 Now if the first=fruit is set-apart, the lump is also. And if the root is set-apart, so are the branches. 17 And if some fo the branches were broken off and you, being a wild olive tree, have been grafted in among them and came to share the root and fatness of the olive tree, 18 do not boast against the branches. And if you boast, remember; you do not bear the root, but the root bears you!…20…By unbelief they were broken off and you stand be belief. Do not be arrogant, but fear. 21 For if Elohim did not spare the natural branches, He might not spare you either. 22 See the kindness and sharpness of Elohim; on those who fell sharpness, but toward you kindness, if you continue in His kindness, otherwise you also shall be cut off. 23 And they also, if they do not continue in unbelief, shall be grafted in, for Elohim is able to graft them in again. 24 For if you were cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature and were grafted contrary to nature into a good olive tree, how much more shall these who are the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree? 25 For I do not wish you to be ignorant of this secret, brothers, lest you should be wise in you own estimation, that hardening in part has come over Yisra’el, UNTIL THE COMPLETENESS OF THE GENTILES HAS COME IN. 26 And so ALL YISRA’EL SHALL BE SAVED, as it has been written, “The Deliverer shall come out of Tsiyon and He shall turn away wickedness from Ya’cob, and this is My covenant with them, when I take away their sins. Truly, as regards the Besorah they are enemies for your sake, but concerning the choice THEY ARE BELOVED FOR THE SAKE OF THE FATHERS. 29 For THE GIFTS AND THE CALLING OF Elohim are NOT TO BE REPENTED OF.”

So as we can see in the above scripture, Elohim has promised Israel their land and a Deliverer, and those who bless the Jews will be blessed and those who curse them will be cursed. Now we can retrace the events and attitudes of America before World War Two to see if America was blessed or cursed, or maybe cursed, then blessed.

  1. 1923-1924 — Hitler writes his autobiography, Mein Kampf, German for “My Struggle,” while in prison after the November 1923 failed “Beer Hall Putsch.” In it, Hitler explains his beliefs and plans for the future of the German nation. He describes the “Aryan” race, by eliminating all inferior and undesirable peoples, of which in particular he focuses on the “source of all evil” – the Jews.

  10. September 1, 1939 — German army invades Poland, marking the beginning of World War II.
  11. May 20, 1940 — Concentration camp is established at Auschwitz.

It is from Gonzalo Montt Rivas, the Chilean consul in Prague, Czechoslovakia, to his superiors in Santiago, Chile. In it, Rivas informs Santiago of a German decree revoking the citizenship and forfeiting the property of German Jews living outside Germany. Rivas also ominously states — “The German triumph (in the war) will leave Europe freed of Semites.”

  29. August 8, 1942 — Gerhart Riegner informs U.S. consulate in Geneva about a Nazi plan to murder all the Jews of Europe.
  1. Until recently [July 2001], this was believed by most historians to be the date the United States first obtained “reliable” intelligence of mass exterminations of Jews by the Nazis. But, see March 20, 1942 for possible earlier date.
  • August 11, 1942 — U.S. Legation in Switzerland passes information received from Gerhart Riegner to U.S. State Department regarding Nazi plan to kill all European Jews. The U.S. State Department decides the information passed on by Riegner is nothing more than a “fantastic” war rumor, and do not pass the information on to American Jewish leaders.
  • August 21, 1942 — President Roosevelt warns Axis powers that the perpetrators of war crimes would be tried after their defeat and face “fearful retribution.”
  • August 28, 1942 — After receiving details of Gerhart Reigner’s report regarding the Nazi plan to annihilate European Jews, a British politician cables the information to American Rabbi Stephen Wise.
  • September 2, 1942 — Rabbi Stephen Wise contacts U.S. State Department about Nazi plan to kill all European Jews. Wise agrees to remain silent until the information is confirmed. This ‘confirmation’ takes nearly 3 months.
  • November 24, 1942 — U.S. State Department confirms the existence of Nazi extermination camps and the murder of two million Jews to date. Rabbi Stephen Wise holds press conference to announce that the Nazis were deporting Jews throughout German-occupied territory to Poland for mass slaughter. The news makes little impact as the next day’s New York Times reported this news on its tenth page. Throughout the rest of the war, the N.Y. Times and most other newspapers failed to give prominent and extensive coverage to the Holocaust.
  • December 8, 1942 — Jewish leaders meet with President Roosevelt and hand him a 20-page summary of the Holocaust.

  • February 10, 1943 — U.S. State Department asks legation in Switzerland to discontinue sending reports about the mass murder of Jews to private persons in the U.S.
  • April 12, 1943 — The 12-day Bermuda Conference opens. The conference grew out of concerns in Britain about reports that the Nazis were slaughtering Europe’s Jews. The U.S. agreed to hold a closed-door conference with Britain to discuss the issue. But American delegates arrived with secret directives from the U.S. State Department to accomplish little. The delegates to the conference developed almost no concrete proposals. Perhaps because of this they decided to keep their report secret.
  • July, 1943 — Jan Karski, a courier for the Polish resistance, meets with FDR, giving him an eyewitness account of the Holocaust.

  • October 6, 1943 — 400 Orthodox rabbis march on Washington from the Capitol to the White House. The President refuses to see them. However, as a result, public hearings on rescue in the House and Senate are held.
  • January 13, 1944 — “Report to the Secretary on the Acquiescence of This Government in the Murder of the Jews” is received by U.S. Secretary of the Treasury, Henry Morgenthau Jr. Earlier, U.S. Treasury Department officials, working on projects to provide aid to European Jews, discovered that their colleagues in the U.S. State Department were actually undermining rescue efforts. They brought their concerns to Morgenthau, who was Jewish and a long-time supporter of Roosevelt. Morgenthau directed the preparation of this report, presented it to FDR and requested that he establish a rescue agency.
  • January 22, 1944 — January 22, 1944, The president issued Executive Order 9417, creating the War Refugee Board [WRB]. Estimates indicate that the WRB may have saved as many as 200,000 Jews. One can only speculate how many more might have been saved had the WRB been established in August 1942, when Gerhart Riegner’s message reached the United States.
  • April, 1944 — Two escapees from Auschwitz, Rudolph Verba and Alfred Wetzler, provide Jewish underground in Slovakia with full description of the death camp.

  • 1946 — After more than 200 days of proceedings, the Nuremberg War Crimes Tribunal concludes. Death sentences given to Goering, Ribbentrop, Streicher, Hans Frank and seven other Nazis.

As you can see by the information contained above, the United States of America saw, heard, and had ample evidence of what the Jews of Europe were facing, turned our back on the Jews from the MA St Louis – which later resulted in the death of many of them – and allowed antisemitism to flourish, which finally resulted in World War Two. Is Barack Obama going to bless Israel and the U.S., or harm Israel, and cause curses, including war, famine, death and disease, to ravish America?

Remember, it wasn’t until the Allies – including America – defeated Nazi Germany, that they saw the blessings of victory with the new weapons that caused Japan to surrender, ending the War, and bringing relative peace to the planet for the last 60+ years. But, there were moments of war, so where did America stand with Israel during these times?

First let’s take a look at numbers 3 and 4 to see that Jews in Germany were stripped of civil service, and then they lost their citizenship and were thoroughly discriminated against in 1933 and 1935, respectively. Then, we can see in Jan. of 1939  that Time Magazine named Hitler ‘Man of the Year’ and praised him. Then ,in 1939 the U.S. rejected Jews from the ship MA St Louis. September 1939 marks the beginning of World War Two with the invasion of Poland by Germany, and in July of 1941, America learned of massacres of Jewish civilians by Nazi’s in Europe. America enters the War via an attack by Japan on Dec. 7, 1941, but by this time, Hitler had indeed become very powerful.

As a matter of historical record, the United States, though timid, indifferent, cold – and even semi-hostile at times against Zionism – (which is the belief that Jews should live in the homeland Yahuah gave them thousands of years ago), has remained the strongest ally of Israel from the start of that nation until this day, though Barack Obama may change this soon…

In the United Nations, the U.S. didn’t even cast its first veto against U.N. messures against Israel until 1972, and that was on a Syrian-Lebanese complaint against Israel. In fact, from 1967-72, the U.S. supported or abstained on 24 resolutions, most critical of Israel. And from 1973-2000, the Security Council adopted about 90 resolutions on the Middle East, with most of them also critical of Israel. The U.S. vetoed a total of 33 resolutions, and thereby supported the Council’s criticism of Israel by its vote of support or by abstaining about two-thirds of the time. Since its inception, the UN has been generally hostile to Israel, with the U.S. often her sole defender. Israel returns the friendship by voting solidly with the US on virtually all issues.

The U.S. was first to recognize Israel, only minutes after it was officially created in 1948, which was consistent with a 1922 Congressional resolution backing the League of Nations mandate for a Jewish homeland in the Middle East. In the 6-Day 1967 War, the U.S. through its State Department, said it was “neutral in thought, word and deed” about the conflict, with Johnson imposing an arms embargo on the region. So, what happened in 1968 after a string of victories by the U.S. in Vietnam in 1967? The Tet Offensive, which changed with antisemitic Walter Cronkite reporting that the war was unwinnable, changing public support for the War effort into a huge negative, complete with the Weather Underground terrorist group declaring war on America, along with massive civil unrest and upheavals all across the country. The Philippines, which had given the U.S. a 99-year lease on designated military, naval, and air bases, was reduced to 25 years beginning 1967. Remember that Israel defeated a radical Arab, pro-Soviet offensive, which threatened to bring about the collapse of pro-American Arab regimes, disrupt oil supplies, and thus eventually severely undermining U.S. standard of living.

Remember also that the U.S. gained valuable military information from analysis of captured Soviet equipment, including SAM-2, SAM-12, Mig-21 aircraft, and Soviet T-54 battle tanks, with Israel giving a squadron of MiG-21s to the U.S. and which were then used for Air and Naval forces for training purposes.

Just as a side note, since 1967, Israel has transferred captured Soviet weapons systems to the U.S. Pentagon after every conflict: 1967, 1967-70, 1973, 1982, 1990 (Scud remnants from the Gulf War), and 2006 (remnants of Iranian supplied missiles). In 1982, Israel destroyed Soviet anti-aircraft batteries in Lebanon that were considered immune to American weapons, with Israel sharing the operation’s lessons to the U.S., estimated to be worth billions of dollars.

And General George Keegan, former head of U.S. Air Force Intelligence, publicly declared that “Israel is worth five CIA’s,” and further stated that between 1974 and 1990, Israel received $18.3 billion in U.S. military grants, but during the same period, Israel provided the U.S. with $50-80 billion in intelligence, research and development savings, and also, Soviet weapons systems that were captured and then transferred to the U.S.

Also, during the 1967-1970 1000 Day War of Attrition, the IDF, armed with American aircraft, successfully defeated a Soviet-supplied air defense system, revealing deficiencies in Soviet air-defense doctrine to US defense planners, and with Israel also sharing captured military equipment including P-2 radar and Soviet tanks.

The Yom Kippur War of 1973 saw the U.S. finally come to the rescue of Israel: “The President has agreed — and let me repeat this formally – that all your aircraft and tank losses will be replaced,” U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger told the Israelis on Oct. 9, 1973. The U.S. decision allowed Israel to send hundreds of additional tanks and planes into battle that were being saved in case of future losses.

So, what happened in 1973? The Democratic Republic of Vietnam (North Vietnam), and the Provisional Revolutionary Government of South Vietnam (Viet Cong) sign a peace agreement in Paris, France, ending the longest U.S. war & military draft. Following President Richard Nixon’s visit to China, the U.S. and the People’s Republic of China agree to establish liaison offices, and U.S. – Sino relations begin to shift, as the U.S. would now use China as a semi-ally against the U.S.S.R., giving the U.S. a permanent (?) wedge against Moscow.

Also, Egypt and Israel sign a U.S.-sponsored cease-fire accord, which would allow Egypt to be a partner for peace, and which also would be used as a wedge against other more hostile Arab states, giving the U.S. another tactical advantage in U.S./U.S.S.R. relations. U.S. President Richard Nixon begins several talks with Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev, paving the way for somewhat better relations with Moscow.

And in 1973, because the U.S. resupplied Israel, Israel defeated Soviet-trained and equipped Egyptian and Syrian forces and shared that captured Soviet equipment – including T-62 battle tanks – with the U.S. Israel had emerged as the only reliable ally where U.S. troops could land, equipment could be pre-positioned, and where the U.S. had friendly port facilities (in Haifa and Ashdod) in the entire Middle East region, saving the U.S. billions of dollars.

Finally, Israel, Egypt, Syria, Jordan, US & USSR meet in Geneva, with relative peace from this time in the Middle East until the Gulf War in 1991.

Although the U.S. was the first to recognize Israel, America denied her the right to defend herself somewhat by going along with other nations to deny them weapon sales through the embargo of the 1949 Tripartite Agreement on weapons, even though the US sold hundreds of millions of dollars in weaponry to Arab states during the 1950s and early 1960s. It wasn’t until 1962, when the U.S. agreed to sell to Israel its first significant American system, the HAWK anti-aircraft missile, that America started to back Israel in a big way, and America took off from the Cuban Missile Crisis to become an even greater nation that eventually stopped the Soviet Union from swallowing the world up into Communism.

As a direct result of the Yom Kippur War, the U.S. quadrupled its foreign aid to Israel, and the doctrine of maintaining Israel’s “qualitative edge” over its neighbors was begun, based both on U.S. gratitude of Israel’s defense of Western values in a generally hostile region, and with the backdrop of the Cold War, and the understanding that to oppose the hostile Arab client states of the U.S.S.R. was in the interests of both the U.S. and Israel.

The U.S. didn’t give financial aid to Israel until, you guessed it, the year of the start of the Korean War, where the U.S., though outnumbered, was able to stop the total takeover of the entire nation. This would have meant a very different world had this occurred. New Philippine constitution names Marcos president for life, keeping a strong U.S. as a long-term strategic partner against Soviet and Chinese desires in the region. The 1st U.S. POWs in N Vietnam released; 116 of 456 flown to the Philippines. Luna 21 launched to Moon, Pioneer 11 launched to Jupiter & Saturn and U.S. launches 1st Skylab crew to keep up with Soviet launches to moon and space of that year. The first portable cell phone call is made in New York City.

But why did Desert Storm occur in 1991? The U.S. only lost 148 souls in battle, prevented Iraq from destabilizing the region, and thereby preventing an eventual severe reduction of oil supplies to the U.S. that would have crippled the U.S. economy, and possibly brought the world to its financial knees.

And let us remember how much of a blessing the state of Israel has been to America – and those that love freedom in the world:

  1. In 1970, Israel caused the withdrawal of Syrian forces from Jordan, when the U.S. was in wars in Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia, thus preventing the fall of the pro-American regime and the installation of a pro-Soviet radical Palestinian terrorist regime.
  2. In 1981, Israel bombed the Iraqi nuclear reactor at Osirak, delaying Saddam Hussein’s quest for nuclear weapons, thus providing the U.S. with the option of engaging in conventional wars with Iraq in 1991 and 2003, instead of engaging in wars with nuclear weapons possibly involved, saving the world a nightmarish scenery of possibly globe-altering conditions.
  3. The vice president of General Dynamics, which produces the F16 fighter jets, stated that Israel is responsible for 600 improvements in the plane’s systems – modifications estimated to be worth billions of dollars – and spared the U.S. dozens of research and development years.
  4. During the Gulf War in 1991, Israel provided invaluable intelligence, an umbrella of air cover for military cargo, and even had personnel planted in the Iraqi desert to pick up downed American pilots.
  5. In 2005, Israel provided the U.S. with the world’s most extensive experience in homeland defense and warfare against suicide bombers and car bombs, with American soldiers training in IDF facilities. 
  6. Israeli-made drones fly in Iraq, as well as in Afghanistan, providing  the U.S. with vital intelligence.
  7. In September 2007, the IAF destroyed a Syrian-North Korean nuclear plant, providing the U.S. with vital information on Russian air defense systems, which are also employed by Iran.
  8. In 2009, Israel shared with the U.S. its battle-tested experience in combating Palestinian and Hezbollah terrorism, with U.S. GI’s benefiting from Israel’s battle tactics against car bombs, improvised explosive devices, and homicide bombings.
  9. Israel shared with the U.S. the lessons of battle (during the Cold War Soviet military doctrine) and counter-terrorism (including aircraft security, homicide-suicide bombings) which reduced U.S. losses in Iraq and Afghanistan, prevented attacks on U.S. soil, upgraded U.S. weapons, and contributed to the U.S. economy. Without Israel, the U.S. could have been forced to deploy tens of thousands of U.S. troops in the eastern Mediterranean Basin, at a cost of billions of dollars per year.
  10. Israel’s utilization of  American arms gives U.S. military industries, such as Boeing and General Dynamics, a competitive edge compared to European industries. It also boosts U.S. military production, producing more American jobs, and improving U.S. national security. Japan and South Korea preferred the “Hawkeye” spy plane and the MD-500 chopper, both purchased and upgraded by Israel, over comparable British and French aircraft.
  11. Most of the $1.8 billion in annual U.S. military aid to Israel must be spent in the U.S., proving work for about 50,000 U.S. workers. Virtually all of the $1.2 billion in annual economic aid goes for repayment of debt to the U.S., incurred from military purchases dating back many years, which is now almost liquidated.
  12. Innovative Israeli technologies have given the U.S. a boost on U.S. civilian, including computer-related industries and agricultural industries, which view Israel as a valuable research and development friend.
  13. In contrast to U.S. commitments to Korea, Japan, Germany and other parts of the world, not a single U.S. military service person needs to be stationed in Israel, which is estimated to be about $200,000 per year. Assuming a minimum contingent of 25,000 troops, the cost savings to the U.S. would be about $5 billion a year.

Yeshayahu Chapters 6-35: For I Have Heard From The Master YHWH Of Hosts, A Destruction Decreed Upon All The Earth. Give Ear And Hear My Voice, Listen And Hear My Word.

6)1. In the year that sovereign Uzziyahu died, I saw YHWH sitting on a throne, high and lifted up and the train of His robe filled the Hekal.
2. Above it stood seraphim. Each one had six wings: with two he covered his face, with two he covered his feet and with two he flew.
3. And one cried to another and said, “Set-apart, set-apart, set-apart is YHWH of hosts; all the earth is filled with His esteem!”
4. And the posts of the door were shaken by the voice of him who cried out and the house was filled with smoke.
5. And I said, “Woe to me, for I am undone! Because I am a man of unclean lips and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips–for my eyes have seen the Sovereign, YHWH of hosts.”
6. And one of the seraphim flew to me, having in his hand a live coal which he had taken with the tongs from the altar.
7. And he touched my mouth with it and said, “See, this has touched your lips; your crookedness is taken away and your sin is covered.”
8. And I heard the voice of YHWH, saying, “Whom do I send and who would go for Us?” And I said, “Here am I; Send me.”
9. And He said, “Go and you shall say to this people, ”Hearing you hear, but you do not understand; and seeing, you see, but do not know.’
10. “Make the heart of this people fat and their ears heavy and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes and hear with their ears and understand with their heart and shall turn and be healed.”
11. Then I said, “YHWH, until when?” And He answered, “Until the cities are laid waste and without inhabitant and the houses are without a man and the land is laid waste, a ruin. יא
12. “and YHWH has removed men far away and the forsaken places be many in the midst of the land.
13. “But still, there is a tenth part in it and it shall again be for a burning, like a terebinth tree and like an oak, whose stump remains when it is cut down. The set-apart seed is its stump!”
7)1. And it came to be in the days of Ahaz son of Yotham, son of Uzziyahu, sovereign of Yahudah, that Retsin sovereign of Aram and Peqah son of Remalyahu, sovereign of Yisra’el, went up to Yerushalayim to fight against it, but could not prevail against it. א.
2. And it was reported to the House of Dawid, saying, “Aram has set up camp in Ephrayim,” And his heart the heart of his people were moved as the trees of the forest are moved with the wind. ב.
3. And YHWH said to Yeshayahu, “Go out now to meet Ahaz, you and She’ar-Yashub your son, at the end of the channel of the upper pool, on the highway of the Launderer’s Field, ג.
4. “and say to him, ‘Take heed and be calm; do not fear or be faint-hearted for these two stubs of smoking fire brands, for the fierce displeasure of Retsin and Aram and the son of Remalyahu. ד.
5. “Because Aram, Ephrayim and the son of Remalyahu have plotted evil against you saying, ה.
6. “‘Let us go up against Yahudah and tear it apart and break it open for ourselves and set a sovereign over them, the son of Tabe’el.’ ו.
7. Thus said the Master YHWH, “It is not going to stand, nor shall it take place. ז.
8. “For the head of Aram is Damascus and the head of Damascus is Retsin. And within sixty-five years Ephrayim is to be broken as a people. ח.
9. “And the head of Ephrayim is Shomeron and the head of Shomeron is the son of Remalyahu. If you do not believe, you are not steadfast.”‘” ט.
10. And YHWH spoke again to Ahaz, saying, י.
11. “Ask a sign for yourself from YHWH your Elohim, make deep the request or make it high.” יא.
12. But Ahaz said,I do not ask nor try YHWH! יב.
13. And he said, “Hear now, O House of Dawid! Is it not enough that you weary men, that you weary my Elohim also? יג.
14. “Therefore YHWH Himself gives you a sign. Look, the maiden conceives and gives birth so a Son and shall call His Name Immanu’el. יד.
15. “He eats curds and honey when He knows to refuse evil and choose the good. טו.
16. “For before the Child knows to refuse evil and choose the good, the land that you dread is to be forsaken by both her sovereigns. טז.
17. “YHWH brings on you and your people and your father’s house days that have not come since the day that Ephrayim turned away from Yahudah–the sovereign of Ashshur.” יז.
18. And it shall be in that day YHWH whistles for the fly that is in the farthest part of the rivers of Mitsrayim and for the bee that is in the land of Ashshur. יח.
19. And they shall come and all of them shall rest in steep ravines and in the clefts of the rocks and on all weeds and in all pastures. יט.
20. In that day YHWH shall shave with a razor hired beyond the river–with the sovereign of Ashshur–the head and the hair of the legs and also remove the beard. כ.
21. And it shall be in that day that a man keeps alive a young cow and two sheep. כא.
22. And it shall be, that he shall eat curds because of the plenty milk he gets, for everyone left in the land shall eat curds. כב.
23. And it shall be in that day, every place where there were a thousand vines worth a thousand sheqels of silver, let it be for thornbushes and weeds. כג.
24. With arrows and bows one shall go there, because all the land shall be thornbushes and weeds. כד.
25. And to all the hills which were tiled with the hoe, you do not go for fear of thornbushes and weeds; but it shall be for sending oxen to and a place for sheep to roam.
8)1. And YHWH said to me, “Take a large tablet and write on it with a man’s pen concerning Maher-Shalal-HashBaz. א.
2. “And let Me take reliable witnesses to record, Uriyah the priest and Zekaryahu son of Yaberekyahu.” ב.
3. And I went to the prophetess and she conceived and bore a son. And YHWH said to me, “Call his name Maher-Shalal-HashBaz; ג.
4. for before the child knows to cry, ‘My father’ and ‘My mother,’ the riches of Damascus and the spoil of Shomeron is taken away before the sovereign of Ashshur.” ד.
5. And YHWH spoke to me again, ה.
6. “In as much as these people refused the waters of Shiloah that flow softly and rejoice in Retsin and in Remalyahu’s son; ו.
7. “now therefore, see, YHWH brings up over them the waters of the River, strong and mighty–the sovereign of Ashshur and all his esteem. And he shall come over all his channels and go over all his banks. ז.
8. “And it shall pass through Yahudah, he shall overflow and pass over, reaching up to the neck. And the stretching out of his wings shall fill the breadth of Your land, O Immanu’el. ח.
9. “Be shattered, O you peoples and be broken in pieces! Give ear, all you from the far places of the earth. Gird yourselves, but be broken in pieces; gird yourselves, but be broken in pieces. ט.
10. “Take counsel and it comes to ruin; speak a word and it does not stand, for El is with us.” י.
11. For YHWH spoke thus to me with a strong hand and instructed me that I should not walk in the way of this people, saying, יא.
12.” Do not say, ‘A conspiracy,” concerning all that this people call a conspiracy, nor be afraid of their threats, nor be troubled. יב.
13. YHWH of hosts, Him you shall set-apart. Let Him be your fear and let Him be your dread. יג.
14. “And He shall be for a set-apart place, but a stone of stumbling and a rock that makes for falling to both the houses of Yisra’el, as a trap and a snare to the inhabitants of Yerushalayim. יד.
15. “And many among them shall stumble and fall and be broken and snared and taken.” טו.
16. Bind upon the witness and seal the Torah among my taught ones. טז.
17. And I shall wait on YHWH, who hides His face from the house of Ya’aqob. And I shall look for Him. יז.
18. Look, I and the children whom YHWH has given me–for signs and wonders in Yisra’el from YHWH of hosts, who dwells in Mount Tsiyon. יח.
19. And when they say to you, “Seek those who are mediums and wizards, who whisper and mutter,” should not a people seek their Elohim? Should they seek the dead on behalf of the living? יט.
20. To the Torah and to the witness! If they do not speak according to this Word, it is because they have no daybreak. כ.
21. And they shall pass through it hard pressed and hungry. And it shall be, when they are hungry, that they shall be wroth and curse their sovereign and their Elohim, looking upward. כא.
22. And they shall look to the earth and see distress and darkness, gloom of hard times and be driven into thick darkness. כב.
9)1. But there is no gloom upon her who is distressed, as when at first He humbled the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali and afterward more heavily oppressed her, by the way of the sea, beyond the Yarden, in Galil of the nations.
2. The people who were walking in darkness have seen a great light; upon those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death a light has shone. א.
3. You shall increase the nation; You shall make its joy great. They shall rejoice before You, as in the joy of harvest, as men rejoice when they divide the spoil. ב.
4. For You shall break the yoke of his burden and the staff of his shoulder, the rod of his oppressor, as in the day of Midyan. ג.
5. For every boot of one trampling in tumult and coat rolled in blood, shall be used for burning and fuel of fire. ד.
6. For a child shall be born unto us, a Son shall be given unto us and the rule is on His shoulder. And His Name is called Wonder, Counselor, Strong El, Father of Continuity, Prince of Peace. ה.
7. Of the increase of His rule and peace there is no end, upon the throne of Dawid and over His reign, to establish it and sustain it with right-ruling and with righteousness from now on, even forever. The ardour of YHWH of hosts does this. ו.
8. YHWH sent a word against Ya’aqob and it has fallen on Yisra’el. ז.
9. And the people shall know, all of them, Ephrayim and the inhabitant of Shomeron, who say in pride and greatness of heart; ח.
10. “The bricks have fallen down, but we rebuild with hewn stones; the sycamores are cut down, but we replace them with cedars.” ט.
11.  And YHWH set up the adversaries of Retsin against him and stirred up his enemies, י.
12. The Arameans before and the Philistines behind. And they devour Yisra’el with an open mouth. With all his His displeasure has not turned back and His hand is still stretched out. יא.
13. And the people have not turned back to Him who smites them nor have they sought YHWH of hosts. יב.
14. And YHWH cuts off head and tail from Yisra’el, palm branch and reed in one day. יג.
15. Elder and highly respected, he is the head; the prophet who teaches falsehood, he is the tail. יד.
16. For the leaders of this people lead them astray and those who are guided by them are swallowed up. טו.
17. Therefore YHWH does not rejoice over their young men and has no compassion on their fatherless and widows; for everyone is defiled and evil and every mouth speaks foolishness. With all this, His displeasure has not turned back and His hand is still stretched out. טז.
18. For wrongness burns las the fire, it consumes thornbushes and weeds and sets the bushes of the forest ablaze and they roll up like rising smoke. יז.
19. The land shall be burned up by the wrath of YHWH of hosts and the people be as fuel for the fire. A man shall not spare his brother, יח.
20. and cut down on the right hand, but shall be hungry; and he devours on the left hand, but shall not be satisfied; each one devouring the flesh of his own arm. יט.
21. Menashsheh Ephrayim and Ephrayim Menashsheh; together they are against Yahudah. With all this His displeasure has not turned back and His hand is still stretched out.
10)1. Woe to those making unrighteous laws and writers who have prescribed toil. א.
2. To keep the needy back from right-ruling and to take what is right from the poor of My people, that widows become their prey and orphans their plunder. ב.
3. What shall you do on the day of visitation and to the ruin which comes from afar? To whom would you run for help? And where would you leave your wealth? ג.
4. “Without Me they shall bow down among the prisoners and fall among the slain.” With all this His displeasure has not turned back and His hand is still stretched out. ד.
5. “Woe to Ashshur, the rod of My displeasure and the staff in whose hand is My displeasure. ה.
6. “Against a defiled nation I send him and against the people of My wrath I command him to seize the spoil, to take the prey and to tread them down like the mud of the streets. ו.
7. “But he does not intend so, nor does his heart think so, for it is in his heart to destroy, and cut off not a few nations. ז.
8.”For he says, “Are not my princes sovereigns? ח.
9. ‘Is not Kalno like Karkemish? Is not Hamath like Arpad? Is not Shomeron like Damascus? ט.
10. ‘As my hand has found the reigns of the idols, whose carved images excelled those of Yerushalayim and Shomeron, י.
11. ‘as I have done to Shomeron and her idols, do I not do also to Yerushalayim and her idols?’ יא.
12. “And it shall be, when YHWH has performed all His work on Mount Tsiyon and on Yerushalayim, that I shall punish the fruit of the greatness of the heart of the sovereign of Ashshur and the boasting of his haughty looks. יב.
13. “For he has said, ‘By the power of my hand and by my wisdom I have done it, for I have been clever. I remove the boundaries of the people and have robbed their treasuries. I put down the inhabitants like a strong one. יג.
14. ‘And my hand finds the riches of the people like a nest. And I have gathered all the earth like forsaken eggs are gathered. And there was no one who moved his wing nor opened his mouth with even a peep.'” יד.
15. Would the axe boast itself over him who chops with it, or the saw exalt itself over him who saws with it? As a rod waving those who lift it up! As a staff lifting up that which is not wood! טו.
16. Therefore the Master, YHWH of hosts, sends leanness among his fat ones. And under his esteem he kindles a burning like the burning of a fire. טז.
17. And the Light of Yisra’el shall be for a fire and his Set-apart One for a flame. And it shall burn and devour his weeds and his thornbushes in one day. יז.
18. and consume the esteem of his forest and of his fertile field, both life and flesh. And they shall be as when a sick man wastes away, יח.
19. and the remaining trees of his forest shall be so few in number that a child records them. יט.
20. And in that day it shall be that the remnant of Yisra’el and those who have escaped of the house of Ya’aqob, never again lean upon him who defeated them, but shall lean upon YHWH, the Set-apart One of Yisra’el, in truth. כ.
21. A remnant shall return, the remnant of Ya’aqob, to the Mighty El. כא.
22. For though your people, O Yisra’el, be as the sand of the sea, yet a remnant of them shall return–a decisive end, overflowing with righteousness. כב.
23. For the Master YHWH of hosts is making a complete end, as decided, in the midst of all the earth. כג.
24. Therefore thus said the Master YHWH of hosts, “My people, who dwell in Tsiyon, be not afraid of Ashshur, who beats you with a rod and lifts up his staff against you, in the way of Mitsrayim. כד.
25. “For yet a little while and the displeasure shall be completed and My displeasure be to their destruction.” כה.
26. And YHWH of hosts stirs up a lash for him as the smiting of Midyan at the rock of Oreb. And as His rod was on the sea. so shall He lift it up in the way of Mitsrayim. כו.
27. And in that day it shall be that his burden is removed from your shoulder and his yoke from your neck and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing oil. כז.
28. He has come upon Ayath, he has passed Migron. At Mikmash he stored his supplies. כח.
29. They have gone through the pass, they have taken up lodging at Geba. Romah is afraid, Gib’ah of Sha’ul has fled. כט.
30. Lift of your voice, O daughter of Galliym! Listen, Layishah–O poor Anathoth! ל.
31. Madmenah has fled, the inhabitants of Gebim sought refuge. לא.
32. Yet he remains at Nob that day, he shakes his fist at the mountain of the daughter of Tsiyon, the hill of Yerushalayim. לב.
33. Look, the Master, YHWH of hosts, is lopping off a branch with an awesome crash and the tall ones are cut down and the lofty ones are laid low. לג.
34. And He shall cut down the thickets of the forest with iron and Lebanon shall fall as a mighty one!
11)1. And a rod shall come forth from the stump of Yishai and a Sprout from his roots shall bear fruit. א.
2.The Spirit of YHWH shall rest upon Him–the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of YHWH, ב.
3. and shall make Him breath in the fear of YHWH. And He shall not judge by the sight of His eyes, nor decide by the hearing of His ears. ג.
4. But with righteousness He shall judge the poor and shall decide with straightness for the meek ones of the earth and shall smite the earth with the rod of His mouth and slay the wrong with the breath of His lips. ד.
5. And righteousness shall be the girdle of His loins and trustworthiness the girdle of His waist. ה.
6. And a wolf shall dwell with the lamb and a leopard lie down with the young goat and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together and a little child leads them. ו.
7. And a cow and a bear shall feed, their young ones lie down together and a lion eat straw like an ox. ז.

2. He has gone up to the house and Dibon, to the high places to weep. Mo’ab is wailing over Nebo and over Meydeba; on all their heads is baldness and every beard is cut off. ב.
3. In their streets they shall put on sackcloth; on the tops of their houses and in their streets everyone wails, weeping bitterly. ג.
4. And Heshbon and El’aleh cry out; their voice shall be heard as far a Yahats. Therefore the armed ones of Mo’ab shout; his being shall tremble within him. ד.

6. We have heard of the pride of Mo’ab–very proud–of his pride, his arrogance and his rage. His boastings are not true. ו.
7. So Mo’ab wails for Mo’ab, everyone wails. For the raisin-cakes of Qir Hareseth they moan. They are utterly smitten. ז.
8. For the fields of Heshbon languish–the vine of Sibmah. The masters of the gentiles have broken down its choice plants, which have reached to Ya’zer and wandered through the wilderness. Her branches are stretched out, they are gone over the sea. ח.

8. And he shall not look to the alters, the work of his hands; and he shall not see that which his own fingers made nor see that which his own fingers made nor the Asherim nor the sun-pillars. ח.
9. In that day his strong cities become like a forsaken forest and an uppermost branch, which they left because of the children of Yisra’el. And it shall become a ruin. ט.
10. Because you have forgotten the Elohim of your deliverance and have not remembered the Rock of your stronghold, therefore you shall plant pleasant plants and set out foreign seedings, י.
11. by day make your plant to grow and in the morning make your seed to flourish–but the harvest is a heap in the day of grief and incurable pain. יא.
12. Woe to the uproar of many people who make a noise like the roar of the seas and to the rushing of nations that make a rushing like the rushing of mighty waters– יב.
13. nations rushing like the rushing of many waters. But He shall rebuke them and they shall flee far away and be chased like the chaff of the mountains before the wind, like whirling dust before the whirlwind. יג.
14. At eventide, look! Alarm! Before morning, it is no more. This is the portion of those who plunder us and the lot of those who rob us.
18)1. Woe to the land of shadowed with whirring wings, which is beyond the rivers of Kush, א.
2. which sends envoys by sea, even in vessels of reed on the waters, saying, “Go, swift messengers, to a nation tall and smooth-skinned, to a people dreaded from their beginning onward, a nation mighty and trampling, whose land the rivers divide.” ב.
3. All the inhabitants of the world and you that dwell on the earth: When a banner is lifted up on the mountains, look! And when a ram’s horn is blown, hear! ג.
4. For thus YHWH said to me, “I am still and I watch in My dwelling place like dazzling heat in sunshine, like a cloud of dew in the heat of harvest.” ד.
5. For before harvest, when the bud is perfect and the sour grape is ripening in the flower, then He shall cut off the twigs with pruning hooks and shall cut down and take away the spreading branches. ה.
6. They are left together for the mountain birds of prey and for the beasts of the earth. And the birds of prey shall summer on them and all the beasts of the earth winter on them. ו.
7. In that time a present shall be brought to YHWH of hosts from a people tall and smooth-skinned and from a people awesome from their beginning onward–a nation mighty and trampling, whose land the rivers have divided–to the place of the Name of YHWH of hosts, to  Mount Tsiyon.
19)1. The message concerning Mitsrayim. See, YHWH is riding on a swift cloud and He shall come into Mitsrayim. And the idols of Mitsrayim shall tremble at His presence and the heart of Mitsrayim melt in its midst. א.
2. “And I shall stir up Mitsrites against Mitsrites and they shall fight, each one against his brother and each one against his neighbour, city against city, reign against reign. ב.
3. “And the spirit of Mitsrayim shall vanish within them and I destroy their counsel. And they shall seek the idols and the mutterers, the mediums and the sorcerers. ג.
4. “And I shall deliver the Mitsrites into the hand of a cruel master and a fierce sovereign to rule over them,” declares the Master, YHWH of hosts. ד.
5. And waters shall fail from the sea and the river wasted and dried up. ה.
6. And the rivers shall stink and the streams shall be weak and dried up Reeds and rushes shall wither. ו.
7. Bare places by the River by the mouth of the River and every sown field by the River shall wither. It shall be driven away and be no more. ז.
8. And the fisherman shall lament and all those who cast hooks into the River shall mourn and they who spread nets on the waters shall pine away. ח.
9. And those who work in fine flax and those who weave fine fabric shall become ashamed. ט.
10. And its foundations shall be crushed, all the wage workers grieved in being. י.
11.The princes of Tso’an are only fools; the counsel of Pharoah’s wise ones have become senseless. How do you say to Pharaoh, “I am the son of the wise, the son of ancient sovereigns?” יא.
12. Where are they? Where are your wise men? Let them show you and let them know what YHWH of hosts has counselled against Mitsrayim. יב.
13. The princes of Tso’an have become fools, the princes of Noph are deceived. They, the corner-stone of her tribes, have led Mitsrayim astray. יג.

15. And there is no work for Mitsrayim, by either head or tail, palm branch or bulrush. טו.
16. In that day Mitsrayim shall become like women and tremble and fear because of the waving of the hand of YHWH of hosts which He waves over it. טז.
17. And the land of Yahudah shall be a fear to Mitsrayim, everyone who mention it fears for himself, because of the counsel of YHWH of hosts which He has counselled against it. יז.
18. In that day five cities in the land of Mitsrayim shall speak the language of Kena’an and swear by YHWH of hosts, one is called the City of destruction. יח.
19. In that day an alter to YHWH shall be in the midst of the land of Mitsrayim and a standing column to YHWH at its border. יט.
20. And it shall be for a sign and for a witness to YHWH of hosts in the land of Mitsrayim. When they cry to YHWH because of the oppressors. He sends them a Saviour and an Elohim and shall deliver them. כ.
21. And YHWH shall be known to Mitsrayim and the Mitsrites shall know YHWH in that day and make slaughtering and meal offering and shall make a vow to YHWH and pay it. כא.

3. And YHWH said, “As My servant Yeshayahu has walked naked and barefoot three years for a sign and a wonder against Mitsrayim and Kush, ג.
4. so does the sovereign of Ashshur lead away the captives of Mitsrayim and the exiles of Kush, young and old, naked and barefoot, with their buttocks uncovered–the shame if Mitsrayim. ד.

11. And you dug a ditch between the two walls for the water of the old pool. But you have not looked to its Maker, nor have you seen Him who fashioned it long ago. יא.
12. And in that day the Master YHWH of hosts called for weeping and for mourning, for baldness and for girding with sackcloth. יב.
13. Then see! Joy and gladness, slaying oxen and killing sheep, eating meat and drinking wine, “Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die!” יג.

2. Be silent, you inhabitants of the coastland, you merchants of Tsidon, who passed over the sea, they filled you. ב.
3.  And on great waters the grain of Shihor, the harvest of the River, was her increase. And she was a market-place for the nations. ג.
4. Be ashamed, O Tsidon, for the sea has spoken, the stronghold of the sea, saying, “I have not laboured, nor brought forth children; neither have I reared young men, brought up maidens.” ד.

9.YHWH of hosts has counselled it, to defile the pride of all splendour and to shame all the esteemed of the earth.10. Overflow through your land like the River, O daughter of Tarshish; there is no more strength. ט.
11. He has stretched out His hand over the sea, He shook the reigns; YHWH has given a command against Kena’an to destroy its strongholds. י.
12. And He said, “Never again shall you exult, O you oppressed maiden daughter of Tsidon. Arise, pass over to Kittim, even there you shall find no rest.” יא.
13. See the land of the Chaldeans–this people did not exist. Ashshur founded it for wild beasts of the desert. They set up their siege-towers, they demolished her palaces and made her a ruin. יב.
14. Howl, you ships of Tarshish, for your stronghold is laid waste! יג.
יד.
15. And it that day it shall be that Tsor is forgotten seventy years, according to the days of one sovereign. At the end of seventy years it shall be to Tsor as in the song of the whore: טו.
16. “Take a lyre, go about the city, you forgotten whore; make sweet playing, sing many songs, so that you might be remembered. טז.
17. And at the end of seventy years it shall be that YHWH visits Tsor. And she shall return to her hire and commit whoring with all the reigns of the earth on the face of the soil. יז.
18. And her goods and her hire shall be set-apart for YHWH, not treasured nor laid up, for her gain is for those who dwell before YHWH, to eat sufficiently and for a choice covering.
24)1. See YHWH is making the earth empty and making it waste and shall overturn its surface and shall scatter abroad its inhabitants. א.
2. And it shall be–as with the people so with the priest, as with the servant so with the master. as with female servant so with her mistress, as with the buyer so with the seller, as with the lender so with the borrower, as with the creditor so with the debtor; ב.
3. the earth is completely emptied and utterly plundered, for YHWH has spoken this word. ג.
4.  The earth shall mourn and wither, the world shall languish and wither, the haughty people of the earth shall languish. ד.
5. For the earth has been defiled under its inhabitants, because they have transgressed the Torot, changed the law, broken the everlasting covenant. ה.
6. Therefore a curse shall consume the earth and those who dwell in it be punished. Therefore the inhabitants of the earth shall be burned and few men shall be left. ו.
7. The new wine shall fail, the vine shall languish, all those glad at heart shall sigh. ז.
8. The joy of the tambourine shall cease, the noise of those who rejoice shall end, the joy of the lyre shall cease. ח.
9. No more do they drink wine with a song, strong drink is bitter to those who drink it. ט.
10. The deserted city shall be broken down, every house shall be shut, no one enters. י.
11.There is a crying for wine in the streets; all joy shall be darkened, the gladness of the earth shall be gone. יא.
12. The city is left to ruins and the gate is stricken with destruction. יב.
13. For thus it is to be in the midst of the earth among the peoples, like the shaking of an olive tree, like the gleaning grapes when the grape harvest is done. יג.
14. They lift up their voice,they sing of the excellency of YHWH, they shall cry aloud from the sea. יד.
15. Therefore praise YHWH in the east, the Name of YHWH Elohim of Yisra’el in the coastlands of the sea. טו.
16. From the ends of the earth we shall hear songs, “Splendour to the righteous One!” But I say, “I waste away, I waste away! Woe to me! The treacherous betray, with treachery the treacherous betray.” טז.
17. Fear and the pit and the snare are upon you, O inhabitant or the earth. יז.
18. And it shall be that he who flees from the noise of the fear falls into the pit and he who comes up from the midst of the pit is caught in the snare. For the windows from on high shall be opened and the foundations of the earth be shaken. יח.
19. The earth shall be utterly broken, the earth shall be completely shattered, the earth shall be fiercely shaken. יט.
20. The earth shall stagger like a drunkard. And it shall totter like a hut and its transgression shall be heavy upon it and it shall fall and not rise again. כ.
21. And in that day shall be that YHWH punishes on high the host of exalted ones and on the earth the sovereigns of the earth. כא.
22. And they shall be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit and shall be shut up in the prison and be punished after many days. כב.
23. And the moon shall blush and the sun shall be ashamed, for YHWH of hosts shall reign on Mount Tsiyon and in Yerushalayim, and before His elders, in esteem!
25)1. O YHWH You are my Elohim. I exalt You, I praise Your Name, for You shall do a wonder–counsels of long ago, trustworthiness, truth. א.
2. For You shall make a city a heap, a walled city a ruin, a palace of foreigners to be a city no more–never to be rebuilt. ב.
3. Therefore a strong people praise You, the city of the ruthless nations fear You. ג.
4. For You shall be a refuge to the poor, a refuge to the needy in his distress, a shelter from the storm, a shade from the heat. For the spirit of the ruthless is like a storm against a wall. ד.
5. You subdue the noise of foreigners, as heat in a dry place; as heat in the shadow of a cloud, the singing of the ruthless is subdued. ה.
6. And in this mountain YHWH of hosts shall make for all people a feast of choice pieces, a feast of old wines, of choice pieces with marrow, of old wines, well refined. ו.
7. And He shall swallow up on this mountain the surface of the covering which covers all people and the veil which is spread over all nations. ז.
8. He shall swallow up death forever and the Master YHWH shall wipe away tears from all faces and take away the reproach of His people from all the earth. For YHWH has spoken. ח.
9. And it shall be said in that day, “See, this is our Elohim. We have waited for Him and He saves us. This is YHWH, we have waited for Him, let us be glad and rejoice in His deliverance.” ט.
10. For the hand of YHWH rests on this mountain and Mo’ab is trodden down under Him, as straw is trodden down in the water of a dunghill. י.
11. And He shall spread out His hands in their midst as he who swims spreads out his hands to swim and He shall bring down their pride together, with the skill of His hands. יא.
12. And the high stronghold of your walls He shall bring down, lay it low, levelled to the ground, down to the dust.
26)1. In that day this song is sung in the land of Yahudah, “We have a strong city–He sets up deliverance, walls and ramparts. א.
2. “Open the gates, let the righteous nation which guards the truth enter in. ב.
3. “The one steadfast of mind You guard in perfect peace, for he trusts in You. ג.
4. “Trust in YHWH forever, for in Yah, YHWH, is a rock of ages. ד.
5. “For He shall bring down those who dwell on high. He lays the exalted city low, He lays it low to the earth, He brings it down to the dust. ה.
6. “A foot tramples it down–feet of the poor, footsteps of the needy.” ו.
7. The path of the righteous is uprightness; O upright One, You weigh the course of the righteous. ז.
8. Also, in the path of Your right-rulings, O YHWH, we have waited for You; the longing of our being is for Your Name and for the remembrance of You. ח.
9. My being longs for You in the night, also, my spirit within me seeks You earnestly. For when Your right-rulings are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world shall learn righteousness. ט.
10.The wrong finds favour,yet he shall not learn righteousness; in the land of straight-forwardness he acts perversely and does not see the excellency of YHWH. י.
11. O YHWH, Your hand is high, they do not see. They see the ardour of the people and are ashamed; also, let the fire for Your adversaries consume them. יא.
12. O YHWH, You establish peace for us, for You have also done all our works in us. יב.
13. O YHWH our Elohim, other masters beside You have had rule over us; only in You do we make mention of Your Name. יג.
14. The dead do not live; the departed spirits do not rise. Therefore You have visited and destroyed them and made all their remembrance to perish. יד.
15. You shall increase the nation, O YHWH, You shall increase the nation; You are esteemed; You shall expand all the borders of the land. טו.
16.O YHWH, in distress they shall  visit You, they shall pour out a prayer when Your disciplining is upon them. טז.
17. As a woman with child and about to give birth writhes and cries out in her pain, so shall we be before Your face, O YHWH. יז.
18. We have conceived, we writhed in pain; we have given birth to wind. We have not accomplished deliverance in the earth, nor have the inhabitants of the world fallen. יח.
19. Let your dread  live, together with my dead body, let them arise. Awake and sing, you who dwell in dust, for Your dew is a dew of light and let the earth give birth to the departed spirits. יט.
20. Go, my people, enter your rooms and shut your doors behind you; hide yourself, as it were, for a little while, until the displeasure is past. כ.
21. For look, YHWH is coming out of His place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their crookedness. And the earth shall disclose her blood and no longer cover her slain.
27)1. In that day YHWH with His severe sword, great and strong, punishes Liwiathan the fleeing serpent. Liwiathan that twisted serpent. And He shall slay the monster that is in the sea. א.
2. In that day sing to her, “A vineyard of red wine! ב.
3. “I, YHWH, do guard it, I water it every moment; lest any hurt it, I guard it night and day. ג.
4.”Wrath is not in Me. Who would set thornbushes and weeds against  Me in battle? I would go through them, I would burn them together. ד.
5. “Or let him take hold of My strength and make peace with Me. Let him make peace with Me!” ה.
6. Those who come He causes to take root in Ya’aqob. Yisra’el shall blossom and bud. And they shall fill the face of the world with fruit. ו.
7. Has He smitten him as He smote those who were smitting him? Or were they slain as those they had slaughtered? ז.
8. In measure, by sending her away, You contended with her. He shall take away by His rough wind in the day of the east wind. ח.
9. Therefore by this the crookedness of Ya’aqob is covered. And this is all the fruit of taking away his sin: when he makes all the stones of the altar like chalkstones that are beaten to dust–Asherim and sunpillars rise no more. ט.
10. For the city of defense is lonely, a home forsaken and left like a wilderness–there the calf feeds and there it lies down and shall consume its branches. י.
11. When its twigs are dry, they are broken off, women come and set them on fire. For it is a people of no understanding, therefore He who made them has no compassion on them and He who formed them shows them no favour. יא.
12. And in that day it shall be that YHWH threshes, from the channel of the River to the wadi of Mitsrayim and you shall be gathered one by one, O children of Yisra’el. יב.
13. And in that day it shall be that a great horn is blown and those who were perishing in the land of Ashshur and the outcasts in the land of Mitsrayim shall come and shall worship YHWH on the set-apart mountain, in Yerushalayim.
28)1. Woe to the proud crown of the drunkards of Ephrayim and to the fading flower of its splendid comeliness that is on the head of the fertile valley, to those who are overcome with wine! א.
2. See, YHWH has one who is mighty and strong, like a downpour of hail and a destroying storm, like a flood of mighty waters overflowing, who casts down to the earth with the hand. ב.
3. The proud crown of the drunkards of Ephrayim, is trampled under foot; ג.
4. and the fading flower of its splendid comeliness that is on the head of the fertile valley, like the first fruit before the summer, which, when one sees it, he eats it up while it is still in his hand. ד.
5. In that day YHWH of hosts is for a crown of splendour and a head-dress of comeliness to the remnant of His people, ה.
6. and a spirit of right-ruling to him who sits in right-ruling and strength to those who turn back the battle at the gate. ו.
7. And these too have gone astray through wine and through strong drink wandered about. Priest and prophet have gone astray through strong drink, they are swallowed up by wine, they wander about through strong drink, they go astray in vision, they stumble in right-ruling. ז.
8. For all tables shall be will be covered with vomit, no place without filth. ח.
9. Whom would He teach knowledge? And whom would He make to understand the message? Those weaned from milk, those taken from the breasts! ט.
10. For is: command upon command, command upon command, line upon line, line upon line, here a little, there a little. י.
11. For with a jabbering lip and a foreign tongue He speaks to this people, יא.
12. To whom He said, “This is the rest, give rest to the weary,” and, “This is the refreshing.” But they would not  hear. יב.
13. But the Word of YHWH was to them, “Command upon command, command upon command, line upon line, line upon line, here a little, there a little,” so that they go and shall stumble backward and be broken and snared and taken captive. יג.
14. Therefore hear the Word of YHWH, you men of scorn, who rule this people who are in Yerushalayim, יד.
15. because you have said, “We have made a covenant with death and with the grave we have effected a vision. When the overflowing scourge passes through, it does not come to us, for we have made lying our refuge and under falsehood we have hidden ourselves.” טו.
16. Therefore thus said the Master YHWH, “See, I am laying in Tsiyon a stone for a foundation, a tried stone, a precious corner-stone, a settled foundation. He who trusts shall not hasten away. טז.
17. “And I shall make right-ruling the measuring line and righteousness the plummet. And the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lying and the waters overflow the hiding place. יז.
18. “And your covenant with death shall be annulled and your vision with the grave not stand. When an overflowing scourge passes through, then you shall be trampled down by it. יח.
19. “As often as it passes through it shall take you, for is shall pass through every morning and by day and by night. And it shall be only trembling to understand the message.” יט.
20. For the bed shall be too short for a man to stretch out on and the covering shall be too narrow to wrap himself in it. כ.
21. For YHWH rises up as at Mount Peratsim and He is wroth as at the Valley of Geb’on, to do His work, His strange work and to do His deed, His strange deed. כא.
22. And now, do not be scoffers, lest your bonds be made strong. For I have heard from the Master YHWH of hosts, a destruction decreed upon all the earth.   כב.
23. Give ear and hear my voice, listen and hear my Word. כג.
24. Does the ploughman keep ploughing all day to sow? Does he keep turning his soil and breaking the clods? כד.
25. When he has leveled its surface, does he not sow the caraway and scatter the cummin, plant the wheat in rows, the barley in the appointed place and the spelt in its place? כה.
26. For He instructs him for right-ruling, his Elohim teaches him. כו.
27. For caraway is not threshed with a threshing sledge, nor is a wagon wheel rolled over cummin, but caraway is beaten out with a stick and cummin with a rod. כז.
28. Grain is crushed, so one does not go on threshing it forever, nor break it with his wagon wheel, nor crush it with his horsemen. כח.
29. Even this has come from YHWH of hosts, who did wonders in counsel, who made wisdom great.
29)1. Woe to Ari’el, to Ari’el, the city where Dawid dwelt! Add year to year, let festivals come around. א.
2. “And I shall distress Ari’el and there shall be mourning and sorrow and it shall be to Me as Ari’el. ב.
3. “And I shall encamp against you all around, I shall lay siege against you with a mound and I shall raise siegeworks against you. ג.
4. “And you shall be brought low and speak out of the ground and your speech shall be low, out of the dust. And your voice shall be like a medium’s, out of the ground and your speech whisper out of the dust. ד.
5. “But the crowd of those strange to you shall be like fine dust and the crowd of the ruthless ones as chaff blowing away. And it shall be in an instant, suddenly!” ה.
6. You shall be visited by YHWH of hosts with thunder and earthquake and great noise, with whirlwind and storm and flame of devouring fire. ו.
7. Then the crowd of all the gentiles who fight against Ari’el, even all who fight against her and her stronghold and distress her, shall be as a dream of a night vision. ז.
8. And it shall be as when a hungry man dreams and see, he eats; but he awakes and his being is empty; or as when a thirsty man dreams and see, he drinks; but he awakes and see, he is faint and his being is longing. Thus shall the crowd of all the gentiles be who fight against Mount Tsiyon. ח.
9. Pause and wonder! blind yourselves and be blind! They are drunk, but not with wine; they stagger, but not with strong drink. ט.
10. For YHWH has poured out on you the spirit of deep sleep and has closed your eyes, the prophets. And He covered your heads, the seers. י.
11. And the entire vision is to you like the words of a book that is sealed, which men give to one who knows books, saying, “Read this, please.” And he said, “I am unable, for it is sealed. יא.
12. And the book is given to one does not know books, saying, “Read this, please.” And he said, “I have not known books.” יב.
13. And YHWH says, “Because this people has drawn near with its mouth and with its lips they have esteemed Me and it has kept its heart far from Me and their fear of Me has become a command of men that is taught! יג.
14. “Therefore, see, I am again doing a marvellous work among this people, a marvellous work and a wonder. And the wisdom of their wise men shall perish and the understanding of their clever men shall be hidden.” יד.
15. Woe to those who seek deep to hide their counsel far from YHWH and their works are in the dark: they say, “Who sees us?” and “Who knows us?” טו.
16. How perverse of you! Should the potter be reckoned as the clay? Should what is made say of its Maker, “He did not make me?” And what is formed say of Him who formed it, “He did not understand?” טז.
17. Is it not yet a little while and Lebanon shall be turned into garden land and garden land be reckoned as a forest? יז.
18. And in that day the deaf shall hear the words of the book and the eyes of the blind shall see out of gloom and out of darkness. יח.
19. And the meek ones shall increase their joy in YHWH and the poor  among men rejoice in the Set-apart One of Yisra’el. יט.
20. For the ruthless one is brought to naught, the scorner is consumed and all who watch for evil shall be cut off, כ.
21. those who make a man to sin in word and lay a snare for him who reproves in the gate and turn aside the righteous with empty reasoning. כא.
22. Therefore thus says YHWH, who ransomed Abrahim, concerning the house of Ya’aqob, “Ya’aqob is no longer put to shame, no longer does his face grow pale. כב.
23. “For when he sees his children, the work of My hands, in his midst, they shall set-apart My Name and set-apart the set-apart One of Ya’aqob and fear the Elohim of Yisra’el. כג.
24. “And those who went astray in spirit shall come to understanding and the grumblers accept instruction.”
30)1. “Woe to the stubborn children,” declares YHWH, “to make counsel, but not from Me and to devise plans, but not of My Spirit, in order to add sin to sin; א.
2. who are setting out to go down to Mitsrayim and have not asked My mouth, to be strengthened in the strength of Pharoah and to seek refuge in the shadow of Mitsrayim! ב.
3. “And the strength of Pharaoh shall become your shame and the refuge in the shadow of Mitsrayim your confusion. ג.
4. “For his princes were at Tso’an and his messengers came to Hanes. ד.
5. “They were all ashamed of a people who do not profit them, not for help or profit, but a shame and also a reproach.” ה.
6. The message concerning the beasts of the South. Through a land of trouble and distress, from which came the lioness and lion, the adder and fiery flying serpent, they convey their riches on the backs of young donkeys and their treasures on the humps of camels, to an unprofitable people, ו.
7. even Mitsrayim, whose help is vain and empty. Therefore I have called her RahabHem-Shebeth. ז.
8. And go, write it before them on a tablet and inscribe it on a scroll, that it is for a latter day, a witness forever: ח.
9. that this is a rebellious people, lying children, children who refuse to hear the Torah of YHWH, ט.
10. Who said to the seers, “Do not see,” and to the prophets,Do not prophesy to us what is right. Speak to us what is smooth, prophesy deceits. י.
11. Turn aside from the way, swerve from the path, cause the Set-apart One of Yisra’el to cease from before us.” יא.
12. Therefore thus said the Set-apart One of Yisra’el, “Because you despise this word and trust in oppression and perverseness and rely on them, יב.
13. therefore this crookedness is to you like a breach ready to fall, a bulge in a high wall, whose breaking comes suddenly, swiftly.” יג.
14. And He shall break it like the breaking of the potter’s vessel, which is broken in pieces, without sparing, so that there is not found among its fragments a sherd to take fire from the hearth, or to take water from the cistern. יד.
15. For thus said the Master YHWH, the set-apart One of Yisra’el, “In returning and rest you are saved, in stillness and trust is your strength.” But you would not, טו.
16. and you said, “No, for we flee upon horses,” therefore you flee! And, “We ride on swift horses, ” Therefore those who pursue you are swift! טז.
17. One thousand flee at the rebuke of one; at the rebuke of five you shall flee until you are left as a pole on top of a mountain and as a sign on a hill. יז.
18. And therefore YHWH shall wait, to show you favour. And therefore He shall be exalted, to have compassion on you. For YHWH is an Elohim of right-ruling. Blessed are all those who wait for Him. יח.
19. For the people shall dwell in Tsiyon at Yerushalayim, you shall weep no more. He shall show much favour to you at the sound of your cry; when He hears, He shall answer you. יט.
20. Though YHWH gave you bread of adversity and water of affliction, your Teacher shall no longer be hidden. But your eyes shall see your Teacher, כ.
21. and your ears hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the Way, walk in it.” whenever you turn to the right, or whenever you turn to the left. כא.
22. And you shall defile the covering of your graven images of silver and plating of your moulded images of gold. You shall throw them away as a menstrual cloth and say to them, “Be gone!” כב.
23. And He shall give the rain for your seed with which you sow the ground and bread of the increase of the earth. And it shall be fat and rich, your cattle grazing in an enlarged pasture in that day, כג.
24. and the oxen and the young donkeys that work the ground eat seasoned fodder winnowed with shovel and fan. כד.
25. And on every high mountain and on every high hill there shall be rivers and streams of waters, in the day of great slaughter, when the towers fall. כה.
26.And the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun and the light of the sun be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that YHWH binds up the breach of His people and heals the wound of His blows. כו.
27. See, the Name of YHWH is coming from afar, burning with His wrath and heavy smoke. His lips shall be filled with rage and His tongue be as a devouring fire; כז.
28. and His breath shall be as an overflowing stream, which reaches up to the neck, to sift the nations with a sieve of falsehood and a misleading bridle on the jaws of the peoples. כח.
29. Let the song be to you as in a night set-apart for a festival and gladness of heart as he who is going with a flute, to come into the mountain of YHWH, to the Rock of Yisra’el. כט.
30. And YHWH shall cause His excellent voice to be heard and show the coming down of His arm, with raging wrath and the flame of a consuming fire, with scattering, downpour and hailstones. ל.
31. For through the voice of YHWH Ashshur is broken down, with a rod He smites. לא.
32. And every passage of the ordained staff which YHWH lays on him, shall be with tambourines and lyres, when He shall fight with it, battling with a brandishing arm. לב.
33. For Topheth was ordained of old, even for the sovereign it has been prepared. He has made it deep and large, its fire pit with much wood; the breath of YHWH, as a stream of burning sulphur, is burning in it!
31)1. Woe to those who go down to Mitsrayim for help and rely on horses, who trust in chariots because they are many and in horsemen because they are very strong, but who do not look to the Set-apart One of Yisra’el, nor seek YHWH! א.
2. And He also is wise and has brought evil and has not turned aside His words. And He shall rise up against the house of evil-doers and against the help of workers of wickedness. ב.
3. And the Mitsrites are men and not El. And their horses are flesh and not spirit. And when YHWH stretches out His hand, both he who helps shall stumble and he who is helped shall fall. And they shall allfall, together. ג.
4. For this is what YHWH has said to me, “As a lion roars and a young lion over his prey, though a band of shepherds is called out against him, he is not afraid of their voice nor disturbed by their noise, so YHWH of hosts shall come down to fight upon Mount Tsiyon and upon its hill. ד.
5. Like hovering birds, so does YHWH of hosts protect Yerushalayim–protecting and delivering, passing over and rescuing.” ה.
6. Turn back to Him from whom the children of Yisra’el have deeply fallen away. ו.
7. For in that day, let each man reject his idols of silver and his idols of gold, which your own hands have made for yourselves, as a sin. ז.
8. “And Ashshur shall fall by a sword not of man and a sword not of mankind shall devour him. But he shall flee from the sword and his young men shall become slave labour, ח.
9. and his strength pass away because of fear and his commanders shall be afraid of the banner,” declares YHWH, whose light is in Tsiyon and whose furnace is in Yerushalayim.
32)1. See, a sovereign shall reign in righteousness and rulers rule in right-ruling. א.
2. And each one shall be as a hiding place from the wind and a shelter from the downpour, as rivers of water in a dry place, as the shadow of a great rock in a weary land. ב.
3. And the eyes of those who see are not dim and the ears of those who hear listen. ג.
4. And the heart of the rash understand knowledge and the tongue of the stammerers hurries to speak plainly. ד.
5. A fool is no longer called noble, nor the scoundrel said to be respectable; ה.
6. For a fool speaks folly and his heart works wickedness: to practise filthiness and to speak against YHWH that which misleads, to starve the being of the hungry and to withhold the drink from the thirsty. ו.
7. And the methods  of the scoundrel are evil–he has devised wicked plans to destroy the poor with words of falsehood, even when the needy pleads for right-ruling. ז.
8. But the generous one devises what is generous and by generous deeds he rises up. ח.
9. Rise up, you women who are at ease, hear my voice; rise up you complacent daughters, listen to my speech. ט.
10. In little more than a year you shall be troubled, you complacent women; for the grape harvest shall fail, the ingathering shall not come. י.
11. Tremble, you women who are at ease; be troubled, you complacent ones; strip yourselves, make yourself bare and gird sackcloth on your waists. יא.
12. Lament upon the breasts for the pleasant fields, for the fruit-bearing vine. יב.
13. Weeds and thornbushes come up over the ground of My people, indeed, over all the houses of joy, the city of revelry; יג.
14. for the palace is abandoned, the crowded city deserted. Hill and watchtower serve as caves forever, a joy of wild donkeys, a pasture of flocks; יד.
15. until the Spirit is poured upon us from on high and the wilderness shall become garden-land and the garden land be reckoned as a forest. טו.
16. Then the right-ruling shall dwell in the wilderness and righteousness remain in the garden-land. טז.
17. The work of righteousness shallbe peace and the service of righteousness be rest and safety forever.18. And My people shall dwell in a home of peace and in safe dwellings and in undisturbed resting places,19. even when hail shall fall, felling the forest and the city be brought low in humiliation.20. Blessed are you who sow beside all waters, who send out the foot of the ox and the donkey.
33)1. Woe to you ravager, while you have not been ravaged and you treacherous, while they have not betrayed you! When you have ceased ravaging, you shall be ravaged. And when you stop betraying, they shall betray you. א.
2. O YHWH, show us favour, for we have waited for You. Be their arm every morning, our deliverance also in time of distress. ב.
3. At the noise of the rumbling the people shall flee. When You lift Yourself up, the gentiles shall be scattered. ג.
4. And Your plunder shall be gathered like the gathering of the caterpillar; as locusts rush about, they rush upon them. ד.
5. YHWH is exalted, for He dwells on high; He has filled Tsiyon with right-ruling and righteousness. ה.

This first video is a testimony from a young man who had prayed that he would see Hell. He got his prayer answered…

This next video is of a man who did NOT ask to be sent to Hell to experience what it was like, but was thrust there for 23 minutes according to his testimony. He says he gave up a $500,000 job to warn people about this place.

This next testimony is from a man who loved to take risks, but didn’t take time to get to know the Creator like the Creator wants us to. He tells us that EVERYONE WILL spend eternity somewhere…

Testimonies of Hell From Atheists, Agnostics, Rebels and Backsliders. Why YOU Will Survive Death, Even Though You Leave Your Body!

Even though the following are stories that are mostly from those who have had ‘Near Death Experiences (NDE),’ I want to quickly tell you of a dream I had a couple of years or so ago.

I dreamt that I was in a very tiny room and was talking to a man behind what I think I remember was a table. He said a few words to me that I do not remember and then I walked a few short feet to a few stairs up into a tiny spacecraft that I believed was going to take me to Heaven. I got in the spacecraft, while the other man who was there got in on the left side of me. We then immediately embarked away from the platform and started flying towards what I felt was Heaven. But as soon as we left, I IMMEDIATELY started to freeze solid, which was just like being TOTALLY and completely engulfed in fire from within my body. I immediately KNEW that I would be in this state of existence for all eternity, so I cried out and said as I left the vehicle to head back towards the platform, “I’m not ready yet!The driver stopped and looked back at me, while the other person looked at me as well, and then I woke up. The scripture I think that correlates with this dream is the following from 1 Corinthians 15:50 “And this I say, brothers, that flesh and blood is unable to inherit the reign of Elohim, neither does corruption inherit incorruption.” This dream took place back when I was a Christian, before I knew that those who were the original disciples of the Way of Yahusha were called ‘Natsarim,’ with ‘Natsari,’ meaning a single Believer in Yahusha Ha’Mashiach (Anointed One, Redeemer, Messiah, Savior, Master — but NOT ‘Christ’).

One day after that dream, I believe Father YAHUAH gave me — as I lay on my bed — a sense of the horrible and treacherous agony of hopelessness that ensues when one dies without hope of Heaven, only giving me a very small taste of the very beginning of a never-ending FRIGHTFUL downward spiral leading to complete and utter darkness of hopelessness and despair that seemed to me like it was even MORE painful than any actual, physical pain. I tried hard to present to you the feelings about this experience in the words written above, but words do not accurately describe the dreadful feeling of eternal hopelessness that I was allowed to feel. Eternally dying WITHOUT ANY HOPE whatsoever or any kind of second chance is the best way to describe what I felt.

The following videos may help you better understand what life is like, or better yet, death is like without EVER having ANY hope of ever getting better.

This first video is about a man who says he has actually had TWO NDE’s, the first one being a good experience, and the second one being a HORRIBLE experience.

This next video features a man who seems to have had somewhat of a similar experience of being cold AND on fire at the same time.

This next testimony is of a man who says he dropped dead in a Las Vegas casino and then went to Hell.

This next video features an African-American man who was in a car accident and says he died and went to Hell.

This next video features an atheist man and another man who didn’t know about the Savior, Yahusha Ha’Mashiach, and went to Hell.

These next two videos feature a man who didn’t take time to get to know YHWH, and then ended up being savagely torn and ravaged by non-friendly entities.

These next two videos feature an atheist man who says he became ill and kept leaving his body to fall into a deep darkness that held “untold terror” which left him with the most “horrifying, terrifying experience” he has ever encountered.

The following video is about a man who says the Creator gave him an ‘out of body’ (OBE) experience of going to Hell.

The next video is of a man who says he “knew better,” but he didn’t “do better” to live a moral life, and had an OBE of going to Hell.

Next we have a “devil worshiper” who had a dream about going to Hell.

This next video is about a man they say experienced the flames of Hell and saw the gates of Hell.

This next testimony is of a woman who “used men” and ended up in a car accident which she says took her down to a “big long tunnel” that was dark, onto her way to Hell in here NDE.

Here is a testimony of a man who says he was raised from the dead after THREE DAYS, claiming this is a sign to this generation.

Here is part one and here is part two of a woman who says the Creator’s Son took her to Hell for 30 nights.

Here is a blog entry entitled, ‘Do People Either End Up Going to ‘Heaven’ or to a Place Called the ‘Lake of Fire?’

Here is a blog post entitled, ‘Does Hell Really Exist? Why Don’t Even Some Christians Believe Hell Exists Anymore? This entry gives the scriptures as testimony that Hell DOES exist.

And finally, this next video is a compilation of written, short testimonies from people who believe Hell is a real place.

See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven: Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven. And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain. Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve YHWH acceptably with reverence and set-apart fearFor our Elohim is a consuming fire. Heb 12:25-29
