Think About This... A Great Crisis Strikes Judah!

by Guy LaMar

In the land of Judah, the nation of Israel was confirmed as a nation in 1948. And, it was fully established as such in 1968. So, 75 years ago, the tiny nation in Palestine, Israel, was recognized as a nation. By most nations. And, 55 years ago, Israel was officially established as a nation unto the world!

There are many biblical prophecies throughout God’s living immutable word about the end-time events – including what our Lord Jesus Christ spoke of in Matthew chapter 24.

In verse 34, our Lord Jesus says –

’ Assuredly, I say to you, this generation [the generation that will see all these things take place] will by no means pass away till all these things take place.’

True Christians have come to understand and realize that the founding stock of the United States of America came from the tribe of Manasseh. And, the founding stock of Great Britain came from the tribe of Ephraim.

The living and holy word of the Eternal One prophesied about these soon-coming end-times just ahead. Here are but a few two-fold prophesies –

Zechariah 14:1-5

“’ BEHOLD, the Day of the LORD is coming, And your spoil will be divided in your midst. 2) For I will gather all the nations to battle against JERUSALEM; The city shall be taken, The houses rifled, And the women ravished. Half of the city shall go into captivity [even subjugation], But the remnant of the people shall not be cut off from the city.

3) Then the LORD will go forth And fight against those nations [speaking here of the infamous Battle of Armageddon], As He fights in the day of battle. 4) And in that day His [our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ] feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, Which faces Jerusalem on the east. And the Mount of Olives shall split in two, From east to west, Making a very large valley; Half of the mountain shall move toward the north And half of it toward the south.

5) Then you [in Jerusalem] shall flee through My mountain valley, For the mountain valley shall reach to Azal. Yes, you shall flee As you fled from THE EARTHQUAKE In the days of Uzziah king of Judah.

Thus the LORD my God will come, And all the saints with You.’”

Also Matthew 24:15-18 –

’ Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place’ (whoever reads, let him understand), 16) ‘then let those who ARE IN JUDEA flee to the mountains [through My mountain valley]. 17) Let him who is on the housetop not go down to take anything out of his house. 18) And let him who is in the field not go back to get his clothes.’

Also Luke 21:20-21 –

’ But when you see JERUSALEM surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation is near. 21) Then let those WHO ARE IN JUDEA flee to the mountains [through My mountain valley], let those who are in the midst of her depart, and let not those who are in the country enter her. 22) For these are THE DAYS OF VENGEANCE, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.’

Also Jeremiah 30:5-7 –

“For thus says the LORD:

‘We have heard a voice of trembling, Of fear, and not of peace. 6) Ask now, and see, Whether a man is ever in labor with a child? So why do I see every man [IN JUDEA] with his hands on his loins Like a woman in labor, And all faces turned pale?

7) ALAS! For that day [the Day of the LORD; which will affect all nations eventually] is great, So that none is like it; And it is the time of Jacob’s trouble, But he shall be saved out of it.”

Also concerning this soon-coming end-time of trouble, this two-fold prophecy, Daniel 11:30-32 –

“ … ’So he [a final United European Catholic civic and military leader; who will be as tyrannical, if not worse than, Antiochus IV Epiphanes] shall return and show regard for those who forsake the holy covenant. 31) And forces shall be mustered by him, and they shall defile the sanctuary fortress; then they shall take away the daily sacrifices, and place there [on a rebuilt altar or temple] the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION.

32) Those who do wickedly against the covenant he shall corrupt WITH FLATTERY; but the people who know their God [speaking of the “end-time prophets”] shall be strong, and carry out great exploits.”

Continuing, Daniel 11:36-40 –

“’ Then the king [again, a final United European civic and military leader] shall do according to his own will: he shall exalt and magnify himself above every [false] god, shall speak blasphemies against the God of gods, and shall prosper TILL THE WRATH [the Day of the LORD, which lasts 3 ½ years] has been accomplished; for what has been determined shall be done.

37) He shall regard neither the God of his fathers NOR THE DESIRE OF WOMEN [will this final tyrannical European leader be a homosexual?], nor regard any [false] god; for he shall exalt himself above them all.

38) But in their place he shall honor a god of fortresses [military purposes in ‘honoring a foreign god’ – as in military applications with The Large Hadron Collider?]; and a god which his fathers did not know he shall honor with gold and silver, with precious stones and pleasant things.

39) Thus he shall act against THE STRONGEST FORTRESSES [in this 21st-century ‘the strongest fortresses’ would be the United States of America, Israel, and the United Kingdom; in regards to “Jacob’s trouble”] with a foreign god [a foreign god of military might and strength], which he shall acknowledge, AND ADVANCE its glory; and he shall cause them to rule over many, and divide the land for gain.

40) ‘AT THE TIME OF THE END the king of the South [a final confederation of Islamic nations civic and military leader] shall attack him; and the king of the North [this final United European Catholic civic and military leader] shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter the countries, overwhelm them, and pass through.

41) He shall also enter the Glorious Land [Palestine], and many countries shall be OVERTHROWN [they shall lose their sovereignty]; but these shall [initially] escape from his hand: Edom [which is Turkey], Moab [which is Iraq], and the prominent people of Ammon [or Jordan]. 42) He shall stretch out his hand [this final resurrection of the ‘king of the North’] against the countries, and the land of Egypt shall not escape.’”

Daniel 12:1 –

“’ AT THAT TIME Michael [a great archangel] shall stand up, The great prince who stands watch over the sons of your people; And there shall be a time of trouble, Such as never was since there was a nation [speaking of Judah], Even to that time.

And AT THAT TIME your people shall be delivered [the physical remnant of the house of Israel and the house of Judah, as well as], Every one who is found written in the book [the Book of Life].

2) And many of those who sleep [are dead] in the dust of the earth shall awake, Some to everlasting life [speaking of the first resurrection], Some to shame and EVERLASTING contempt [speaking of the second resurrection after the Millennial Reign of Christ].’”

And, speaking of the founding stock of the United States of America and the founding stock of Great Britain –

Genesis 12:1, 2 –

“Now the LORD had said to Abram [whose name would be changed to Abraham] … 2) ‘I will make you A GREAT NATION; I will bless you And make your name great; And you shall be a blessing.’”

Genesis 35:9-12 the promise is passed down to Jacob, Abraham’s grandson. God explicitly states –

“Then God appeared to Jacob again, when he came from Padan Aram, and blessed him, ‘Your name is Jacob; your name shall not be called Jacob anymore, but Israel 1 shall be your name.’ So He called his name Israel. 11) Also God said to him: ‘I am God Almighty. Be fruitful and multiply; A NATION and A COMPANY OF NATIONS shall proceed from you, and kings shall come from your body. 12) The land which I gave Abraham and Isaac I give to you; and to your descendants after you I give this land.’”

Notice that 1st Chronicles 5:2 records for us this promise being passed on to Jacob’s/Israel’s son JOSEPH –

“ … although the birthright was Joseph’s ─”

In the Book of Genesis chapter 48, the promise is conferred upon Joseph’s two sons Manasseh and Ephriam –

Verse 15 – “And he [Jacob/Israel] blessed Joseph, and said:

‘God, before whom my fathers Abraham and Isaac walked, The God who has fed me all my life long to this day, 16) The [angel of the LORD God] 2 who redeemed me from all evil, Bless the lads’ Let my name be named upon them, And the name of my fathers Abraham and Isaac; and let them grow into a multitude in the midst of the earth.’”

So, the LORD God would make the descendants of Manasseh A GREAT NATION. Other Scriptural passages proclaim and show us that Manasseh’s descendants would inherit incredible political, military, geographical, abundant natural resources, and agricultural blessings.

The Eternal our God has fulfilled His promise to make Manasseh A GREAT NATION, and Ephriam A COMPANY OF NATIONS. And, world history shows us that the LORD God’s promise to Abraham began to be fulfilled around the 1800s with the American Industrial Revolution. And by the mid-20th century, the United States of America had become the most powerful and affluent nation in world history! The US's exceptional military power and prosperity are a fulfillment of the LORD God’s promise to the descendants of Manasseh.

Greatest Quantity of True Christians

The United States of America has possessed the greatest quantity of true Christians in one place than any other nation on the planet! There is so much to be said concerning this topic – books worth. The key word being has – because, according to a 2015 Pew Research Center report – “the major new survey of more than 35,000 Americans by the Pew Research Center finds that the percentage of adults (ages 18 and older) who describe themselves as Christians has dropped by nearly eight percentage points in just seven years, from 78.4% in an equally massive Pew Research survey in 2007 to 70.6% in 2014. Over the same period, the percentage of Americans who are religiously unaffiliated – describing themselves as atheist, agnostic or “nothing in particular” – has jumped more than six points, from 16.1% to 22.8%.” 3

But to keep this article simple – we as begotten children of God should WATCH and PRAY and have our spiritual armor suited up!

Let us, brethren, follow the instructions of the LORD God –

2 Timothy 3:1-5 –

“But know this, that IN THE LAST DAYS perilous times will come:

2) For men [mankind] will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3) unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good; 4) traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5) having a form of godliness but denying its power.

And from such people turn away!”

And, it’s sad to say, such people are everywhere in this 21st-century world!

Also, as an angel of the LORD God told the Prophet Daniel concerning this end-time, there is an increase of knowledge. Increased knowledge in good and increased knowledge in the evil and bad. There is an increase of the living word of God. And, there is an increase of false prophets!

“’ But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until THE TIME OF THE END; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.’” – Daniel 12:4.

And sadly, as it was ‘in the days of Noah’ the majority of our peoples will be completely confused concerning the truth of the end-times. Or, they will completely ignore the loving gospel concerning the end-time.

’ But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only. 4 37) But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 38) For as in the days before the Flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, 39) and did not know until the Flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.’ – Matthew 24:36-39.

The Apostle Peter also wrote of this TIME OF THE END –

2nd Peter 3:1-4 –

“Beloved, I now write to you this second epistle (in both of which I stir up your pure minds by way of reminder), 2) that you may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us, the apostles of the Lord and Savior,

3) knowing this FIRST: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, 4) and saying, ‘Where is the promise of His coming? For since our fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation [or rather, in this 21st century word, ‘from the beginning of the Big Bang!’].”

As our Lord Jesus Christ let us know – there would be several things to Watch and look out for. And, be sure to read TODAY "Prophetic Events to Watch For."

“ … ’ Take heed that no one deceives you [religiously and spiritually].you will hear of wars and rumors of wars [all throughout this present evil age]. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom [a reference to Daniel 11:40].famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places.’

Truly, religious deception, wars, violence, and an increase in lawlessness. Droughts, famine, and great earthquakes in various places around the world, along with other natural catastrophes, disease epidemics, and the rise and aggression of a radical Islamic power!

The rise of a great and powerful United States of Catholic Europe's final civic and military leader who seeks global supremacy!

A great and influential false Catholic religious leader – an end-time pope.

Also, possibly a dozen “end-time prophets” coming upon the end-time scene, traveling throughout the nations and standing before “the god of the earth,” the final European Catholic civic leader, and the final false Catholic religious leader, proclaiming ‘let my people go!’ Along with proclaiming the ’gospel of the kingdom in all the world as a witness to all the nations.’

And then the end will come.

Brethren, many of these things ARE HAPPENING NOW!

As we Watch and Pray, we are witnessing what may be the end of the ‘beginning of sorrows’ before our very eyes!


The nation of “Israel” – populated today with the descendants of the tribe of Judah (along with a significant remnant of Levi and Benjamin) is going to suffer serious military losses, and lose part of its territory which is occupied by her enemies.

Our Jewish brethren in Israel are being attacked and will be heavily destroyed. God’s living word makes this abundantly clear!

This unprovoked and vicious attack of which Iran (certainly the greatest terrorist nation in the world) backed, stuck Israeli towns near the Gaza Strip.
When the city of David – Jerusalem – is attacked and divided, the foreign occupying powers will begin what God’s living word calls the ‘abomination of desolation.’

’ For then there shall be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. 23) And unless those days were shortened, no flesh, would be saved [alive]; but for the elect’s sake [the physical remnant of the house of Israel and the house of Judah] those days will be shortened.’ 5

Then, ’ Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light [the atmosphere will be clogged with volcanic ash, along with a period of abnormal cold and darkness predicted to follow a nuclear war, caused by a layer of smoke and dust in the atmosphere blocking the sun's rays]; the stars [demonic angelic beings] will fall from heaven [the atmosphere], and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 30) Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven [outer space], and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.’ – Matthew 24:21-22, 29-30.

And then the resurrection of the dead in Christ and those of us who remain and are alive are resurrected –

“ … ‘He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet [the SEVENTH TRUMPET BLAST], and they will gather together His elect [His spiritual elect] from the four winds, from one end of heaven [the atmosphere] to the other.’ – Matthew 24:31.

And then, the seven last plagues upon an unrepentant mankind.

Yes, brethren and friends, all roads point to a rough period of time just before us.

As our Lord Jesus commands –

’ But take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness [and even spiritual drunkenness], and cares of this life, and that Day [the Day of the LORD] come on you unexpectedly. 35) For it will come as a snare on all those who dwell on the face of the whole earth. 36) Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.’ – Luke 21:34-36.

‘These things’ are beginning to occur, and it’s about to get so much worse!

Sadly, the majority of our peoples will just continue on as they always have – ‘like it was in the days of Noah.’ And just like those before, they will meet their doom. □

1) ISRAEL means “struggle with God” #3478 – However, many other Bible help books (and I realize that the Strong’s Concordance isn’t the most accurate, or maybe the most extensive word study help you can use; my hardback states “struggle with God” – the Online Strong’s states “He will rule as God”) does state that the name Israel has a shocking meaning - “He will rule as God.”
2) See also Gen. 22:11; 28:13-15; 31:11; Hebrews 11:21.
4) Surely, we have to presume that our Lord Jesus Christ now knows.
5) “In this we see the word “shortened” used for the Greek word “syntemnō”. A deeper study shows that this is correctly translated into “limited”. While both words can work in theory, it will depend on who is “teaching” the scriptures. Why? Ministers who do not study the Scriptures and their original translation diligently may teach from their own understanding, rather than from the Scriptures. This Scripture does NOT mean that God will shorten the time of the tribulation randomly. But rather is it already limited to 3 1/2 years for the elect's sake. God does not lie, and does not change.” – Samuel LaMar.
