Why this thread and why now? I think it is timely and gearing up to happen. This is my own personal interpretation of scripture and I could be
wrong. I think I have evidence that I may be entirely correct. You decide.
Many people believe that America and / or England is Ephraim (Young Bull). Jesus said that if they destroy the Temple (Son of God on Earth), he will
rebuild it again in three days. Two have passed (2000 years since the Cross of Christ). Good
article on Ephram being America
Notice what is said below.
“Come, let us return to the Lord.
He has torn us to pieces
but he will heal us;
he has injured us
but he will bind up our wounds.
-----This is Israel coming back into the land after captivity. This happened in 1948. NOTICE THIS NEXT VERSE:
2 After two days he will revive us (1948);
on the third day he will restore us (After 1000 year Reign of Christ),
------NOTICE THAT IN TWO DAYS, ISRAEL IS REVIVED. Compare this to Matthew 21 as a sign that shows us when Jesus enters the temple. He raises it in
three days, yet revives Israel in two. Can we say these signs are happening?
12 Jesus entered the temple courts and drove out all who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches
of those selling doves. 13 “It is written,” he said to them, “‘My house will be called a house of prayer,’ but you are making it ‘a den of
-----Today, Jesus has entered the temple that has been revived. The two witnesses of Revelation 11 are America (Elijah preparing the way with water)
and Israel (Taken across the wilderness by Moses). I believe that Ephraim is America. See
In the verse above, the bankers have had their tables (Financial debt) turned over and the peace makers (Doves) have no rest (Benches). That is
today. Mideast peace and the banker's debt is all you hear about. Next to Israel, Egypt and Syria, we are overrun with news from this region each
day. Our sign of the tipping point of the Day of the Lord is this very event.
that we may live in his presence.
3 Let us acknowledge the Lord;
let us press on to acknowledge him.
As surely as the sun rises,
he will appear;
he will come to us like the winter rains,
like the spring rains that water the earth.”
4 “What can I do with you, Ephraim?
----Again, we see God wondering about what to do with Ephraim.
8 “Ephraim mixes with the nations;
Ephraim is a flat loaf not turned over.
-------America is a mixed nation and half baked (Exhibiting a lack of good judgment or common sense).
9 Foreigners sap his strength,
but he does not realize it.
His hair is sprinkled with gray,
but he does not notice.
We are being sucked dry by other countries and we are going to die as a result. We are old, yet young as nations go (half baked and senseless - like
a young bull).
10 Israel’s arrogance testifies against him (Ephraim),
but despite all this
he does not return to the Lord his God
or search for him.
11 “Ephraim is like a dove (Peace but naive),
easily deceived and senseless—
now calling to Egypt,
now turning to Assyria.
------Does this not perfectly describe President Obama? He consults the Muslim Brotherhood for peace and is easily deceived and senseless. Why? He
consults with the enemy as a foreigner himself. Israel's arrogance testifies against Ephraim, yet he does not return to the Lord. Why is Israel
arrogant? Israel thinks might and strength will save him. Not so. God must be their strength and their king is Christ.
12 When they go, I will throw my net over them;
I will pull them down like the birds in the sky.
When I hear them flocking together,
I will catch them.
------And here it is. When America (and/or Israel) goes into Syria and Egypt, we / they are caught in God's net. Consider what I said about cities
being destroyed in Ephraim in this thread: Ephraim is either England or America or both.
Menesha could be on or the other.
13 Woe to them,
because they have strayed from me!
Destruction to them,
because they have rebelled against me!
I long to redeem them
but they speak about me falsely.
----We see this as Atheists and other groups speak falsely against God. Israel speaks against God in many ways. They do not rely on Him for their
strength. They seek to invade Iran and Syria, yet they do not seek God for their safety. This is their pattern over the centuries.
14 They do not cry out to me from their hearts
but wail on their beds.
They slash themselves, appealing to their gods
for grain and new wine,
but they turn away from me.
15 I trained them and strengthened their arms,
but they plot evil against me.
----This nation was built on God and so was England. Israel must love the Palestinians first, then seek God for protection. They must love their
enemies and so must we. We have invaded other countries, yet we claim to be a Christian nation. It is a paradox explained in these verses.
16 They do not turn to the Most High;
they are like a faulty bow.
Their leaders will fall by the sword
because of their insolent words.
For this they will be ridiculed
in the land of Egypt.
----Of course. The Muslim Brotherhood will laugh at our willingness to send them money. How many billions will we send to Egypt before we come to
If you are still not convinced, consider Isaiah 19 where Egypt is stirred and brother fights against brother.
See, the Lord rides on a swift cloud
and is coming to Egypt.
The idols of Egypt tremble before him,
and the hearts of the Egyptians melt with fear.
2 “I will stir up Egyptian against Egyptian—
brother will fight against brother,
neighbor against neighbor,
city against city,
kingdom against kingdom.
-------Later, look at the result:
19 In that day there will be an altar to the Lord in the heart of Egypt, and a monument to the Lord at its border. 20 It will be a sign and witness to
the Lord Almighty in the land of Egypt. When they cry out to the Lord because of their oppressors, he will send them a savior and defender, and he
will rescue them.
----Keep something in mind. This is two chapters after Isaiah 17 where Damascus is shown to be destroyed along with Jordan and a fortified city in
Ephraim. I show this information in THIS THREAD.
Also, consider this prophecy from Hermes about Egypt: Egypt Prophecy
