The Day of Yahweh is the “great Day of His Wrath”, when He will punish definitely His enemies and exalt His chosen ones. This great day had been already prophesied in the Old Testament, in the Gospel and in Saint John’s Revelation.
The prophet Amos reveals:
“For the Lord Yahweh does nothing without revealing his secret to his servants the prophets” (Amos 3,7).
And the Revelation prophesied the coming of the Great Day:
Revelation 6,12-17: “… For the great day of their wrath is come, and who shall be able to stand?”
We report here some key verses about this Great Day. Read the entire references in the Bible. See also the text “The Revelation according to Muhammad”, paragraph 4, “The Hour, the day of judgement”, which perfectly refers back to these biblical prophecies.
Joel 2,1-12: “And Yahweh had uttered his voice before the face of his army: for his armies are exceeding great, for they are strong and execute his word: for the day of the Lord is great and very terrible: and who can stand it?”
Zephaniah 1,14-18: “The great day of the Lord is near, it is near and exceeding swift: the voice of the day of Yahweh is bitter, the mighty man shall there meet with tribulation.”
Zephaniah 2,1-3: “Assemble yourselves together, be gathered together, O nation not worthy to be loved: Before the decree bring forth the day as dust passing away, before the fierce anger of Yahweh come upon you, before the day of Yahweh’s indignation come upon you. Seek Yahweh, all you meek of the earth, you that have wrought his judgment: seek the just, seek the meek: if by any means you may be hid in the day of the Yahweh’s indignation.”
Amos 5,18-20: “Woe to them that desire the day of Yahweh: to what end is it for you? The day of Yahweh is darkness, and not light.”
Amos 8,9-10: “And it shall come to pass in that day, said the Lord Yahweh, that the sun shall go down at midday, and I will make the earth dark in the day of light: and I will turn your feasts into mourning, and all your songs into lamentation: and I will bring up sackcloth upon every back of yours, and baldness upon every head (effects of the atomic bomb): and I will make it as the mourning of an only son, and the latter end thereof as a bitter day” (see Revelation 18,22,24).
Jeremiah 4,23-31: “I beheld the earth, and it was void, and nothing: and the heavens, and there was no light in them. I looked upon the mountains, and behold they trembled: and all the hills were troubled. I beheld, and there was no man: and all the birds of the air were gone. I looked, and the orchard was a wilderness: and all its cities were destroyed at the presence of Yahweh, and at the presence of the wrath of his indignation.”
Isaiah 13 (particularly verses 6 to 13): “Howl you, for the day of Yahweh is near: it shall come as a destruction from Yahweh. Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every heart of man shall melt, And shall be broken. Gripes and pains shall take hold of them, they shall be in pain as a woman in labour. Every one shall be amazed at his neighbour, their countenances shall be as faces burnt. Behold, the day of Yahweh shall come, a cruel day, and full of indignation, and of wrath, and fury, to lay the land desolate, and to destroy the sinners thereof out of it. For the stars of heaven, and their brightness shall not display their light: the sun shall be darkened in his rising, and the moon shall not shine with her light. And I will visit the evils of the world, and against the wicked for their iniquity: and I will make the pride of infidels to cease, and will bring down the arrogance of the mighty. A man shall be more precious than gold, yes a man than the finest of gold. For this I will trouble the heaven: and the earth shall be moved out of her place, for the indignation of Yahweh of hosts, and for the day of his fierce wrath.”
Ezekiel 32,2-9: “Son of man, take up a lamentation for Pharaoh the king of Egypt (The modern pagan Egypt is Israel; see Revelation 11,8), and say to him: You are like the lion of the nations, and the dragon that is in the sea: and you did push with the horn in your rivers, and did trouble the waters with your feet, and did trample upon their streams. Therefore, thus said the Lord Yahweh: I will spread out my net over you with the multitude of many people, and I will draw you up in my net. And I will throw you out on the land, I will cast you away into the open field: and I will cause all the fowls of the air to dwell upon you, and I will fill the beasts of all the earth with you. And I will lay your flesh upon the mountains, and will fill your hills with your corruption, And I will water the earth with your stinking blood upon the mountains, and the valleys shall be filled with you. And I will cover the heavens, when you shall be put out, and I will make the stars thereof dark: I will cover the sun with a cloud, and the moon shall not give her light. I will make all the lights of heaven to mourn over you: and I will cause darkness upon your land, said the Lord Yahweh, when your wounded shall fall in the midst of the land, said the Lord Yahweh. And I shall provoke to anger the heart of many people, when I shall have brought in your destruction among the nations upon the lands, which you know not.”
Habakkuk 3,1-19: “Yahweh, I have heard your hearing, and was afraid. O Yahweh, your work, in the midst of the years bring it to life: In the midst of the years you shall make it known: when you are angry, you will remember mercy. God will come from the south, and the holy one from mount Pharan: His glory covered the heavens, and the earth is full of his praise. His brightness shall be as the light; horns are in his hands (the graces coming from Jesus’ Wounds ): There is his strength (of Redemption) hid: Death shall go before his face. And the devil shall go forth before his feet. He stood and measured the earth. He beheld, and melted the nations: and the ancient mountains were crushed to pieces. The hills of the world were bowed down by the journeys of his eternity… In your anger you will tread the earth under foot: in your wrath you will astonish the nations. You went forth for the salvation of your people: for salvation with your Christ (Jesus and His ones). You struck the head of the house of the wicked: you had laid bare his foundation even to the neck…”
Joel 3,9-15: “Proclaim you this among the nations: prepare war, rouse up the strong: let them come, let all the men of war come up. Cut your ploughshares into swords, and your spades into spears. Let the weak say: ‘I am strong’. Break forth, and come, all you nations, from round about, and gather yourselves together: there will Yahweh cause all you strong ones to fall down. Let them arise, and let the nations come up into the valley of Josaphat: for there I will sit to judge all nations round about. Put you in the sickles (The sickle is the open book of the Revelation, Revelation 14,14-20), for the harvest is ripe: come and go down, for the press is full, the fats run over: for their wickedness is multiplied. Nations, nations in the valley of the Decision: for the day of Yahweh is near in the valley of the Decision. The sun and the moon are darkened, and the stars have withdrawn their shining.”
Isaiah 24,1-23: “Behold Yahweh shall lay waste the earth, and shall strip it, and shall afflict the face thereof, and scatter abroad the inhabitants thereof. And it shall be as with the people, so with the priest: and as with the servant, so with his master: as with the handmaid, so with her mistress: as with the buyer, so with the seller: as with the lender, so with the borrower: as with him that called for his money, so with him that owes. With desolation shall the earth be laid waste, and it shall be utterly spoiled: for Yahweh had spoken this word. The earth mourned, and faded away, and is weakened: the world faded away, the height of the people of the earth is weakened. And the earth is infected by the inhabitants thereof: because they have transgressed the laws, they have changed the ordinance, they have broken the everlasting covenant (of Jesus). Therefore shall a curse devour the earth, and the inhabitants thereof shall sin: and therefore they that dwell therein shall be mad, and few men shall be left… These (the chosen ones) shall lift up their voice, and shall give praise: when Yahweh shall be glorified, they shall make a joyful noise from the sea. Therefore glorify you the Lord in instruction: the name of Yahweh God of Israel in the islands of the sea. From the ends of the earth we have heard praises, the glory of the Just one (Jesus)!…”
Isaiah 34,1-16 (It is a prophecy against Edom. The old Edom is located in the South of the Dead Sea and it covers a part of Negev and Jordan; thus it refers to Israel that has conquered the Negev, and to all the nations supporting it): “Come near, you Gentiles, and hear, and hearken, you people: let the earth hear, and all that is therein, the world, and every thing that comes forth of it. For the indignation of Yahweh is upon all nations, and his fury upon all their armies: he had killed them, and delivered them to slaughter. Their slain shall be cast forth, and out of their carcasses shall rise a slink: the mountains shall be melted with their blood. And all the host of the heavens shall pine away, and the heavens shall be folded together as a book: and all their host shall fall down as the leaf falls from the vine, and from the fig tree. For my sword is inebriated in heaven: behold it shall come down upon Idumea, and upon the people of my slaughter unto judgment… For it is the day of the vengeance of the Lord, the year of recompenses of the judgment of Zion (therefore it’s really Zion to be judged). And the streams thereof shall be turned into pitch, and the ground thereof into brimstone: and the land thereof shall become burning pitch. Night and day it shall not be quenched, the smoke thereof shall go up for ever: from generation to generation it shall lie waste, none shall pass through it for ever and ever. The bittern and ericius shall possess it: and the ibis and the raven shall dwell in it: and a line shall be stretched out upon it by Yahweh, to bring it to nothing, and a plummet, unto desolation. The nobles thereof shall not be there to call upon the king (the Zionist messiah), and all the princes thereof shall be nothing… thither are the vultures gathered together one to another. Search you diligently in the book of Yahweh (the Revelation), and read: not one of them was wanting, one had not sought for the other: for that which proceeded out of my mouth, he had commanded, and his spirit it had gathered them (it is His Spirit that gathers us by the Angel of the Revelation ).”
The verse 17 is not clear and it seems to have been added.
Jeremiah 25,12-38: “And when the seventy years shall be expired (70 years should be considered from Cyrus’ Edict in 538 B.C., allowing the return of the Jews of Babylon to Palestine, until the end of the Times of Israel prophesised by Daniel; see Biblical Course, the Prophet Daniel), I will punish the king of Babylon (it is “Babylon the great” of the Revelation, Revelation 17,5 and Revelation 17,18, so Jerusalem) and that nation, said Yahweh, for their iniquity, and the land of the Chaldeans (symbolically Israel): and I will make it perpetual desolations. And I will bring upon the land all my words, that I have spoken against it, all that is written in this book (then we need to read chapters 50 and 51 Jeremiah’s prophecy against Babylon in this light; see further), all that Jeremiah had prophesied against all nations: For they have served them, whereas they were many nations, and great kings: and I will repay them according to their deeds, and according to the works of their hands. For thus said the Yahweh, the God of Israel: Take the cup of wine of this fury at my hand: and you shall make all the nations to drink thereof, unto which I shall send you. And they shall drink, and be troubled, and be mad because of the sword, which I shall send among them. And I took the cup at the hand of Yahweh, and I presented it to all the nations to drink of it, to which Yahweh sent me: To wit, Jerusalem, and the cities of Juda, and the kings thereof, and the princes thereof: to make them a desolation, and an astonishment, and a hissing, and a curse, as it is at this day. Pharaoh the king of Egypt, and his servants, and his princes, and all his people… And all the kings of the north far and near, every one against his brother: and all the kingdoms of the earth, which are upon the face thereof: (they are today all the kings of the world supporting Israel )… And you shall say to them: Thus said Yahweh, the God of Israel: Drink you, and be drunken, and vomit: and fall, and rise no more, because of the sword, which I shall send among you. And if they refuse to take the cup at your hand to drink, thou shall say to them: Thus said Yahweh: Drinking you shall drink: For behold I begin to bring evil on the city wherein my name is called upon (Jerusalem): and shall you be as innocent and escape free? You shall not escape free: for I will call for the sword upon all the inhabitants of the earth, said Yahweh. And you shall prophesy unto them all these words, and you shall say to them: Yahweh shall roar from on high (the Clamour of the Angel, Revelation 10,3), and shall utter his voice from his holy habitation: roaring he shall roar upon the place of his beauty: the shout as it were of them that tread grapes shall be given out against all the inhabitants of the earth (Revelation 14). The noise is come even to the ends of the earth: for Yahweh enters into judgement with the nations: he enters into judgement with all flesh; the wicked I have delivered up to the sword, said Yahweh. Thus said Yahweh: Behold evil shall go forth from nation to nation: and a great whirlwind shall go forth from the ends of the earth. And the slain of Yahweh shall be at that day from one end of the earth even to the other end thereof: they shall not be lamented, and they shall not be gathered up, nor buried: they shall lie as dung upon the face of the earth. Howl, you shepherds, and cry: and sprinkle yourselves with ashes, you leaders of the flock: for the days of your slaughter and your dispersion are accomplished, and you shall fall like precious vessels. And the shepherds shall have no way to flee, nor the leaders of the flock to save themselves. A voice of the cry of the shepherds, and a howling of the principal of the flock: because Yahweh had wasted their pastures. And the fields of peace have been silent, because of the fierce anger of Yahweh. He has forsaken his covert as the lion, for the land is laid waste because of the wrath of the dove, and because of the fierce anger Yahweh.”
Isaiah 63,1-6: “Who is this that comes from Edom, with dyed garments from Bosra (to understand the reason for Bosra: Isaiah 34,6), this beautiful one in his robe, walking in the greatness of his strength. I, that speak justice, and am a defender to save. Why then is your apparel red, and your garments like theirs that tread in the winepress? I have trodden the winepress alone, and of the Gentiles there is not a man with me: I have trampled on them in my indignation, and have trodden them down in my wrath, and their blood is sprinkled upon my garments, and I have stained all my apparel. For the day of vengeance is in my heart, the year of my Redemption is come (the day of the revenge will be a Great Redemption to many ). I looked about, and there was none to help: I sought, and there was none to give aid: and my own arm had saved for me, and my indignation itself had helped me. And I have trodden down the people in my wrath, and have made them drunk in my indignation, and have brought down their strength to the earth.”
Jesus is the One “that comes from Edom”. His Coat is stained with purple by the Blood of His Passion and, in the end of Times, by the blood of the martyrs (Revelation 19,13). Thanks to this redeeming Blood mixed together by our prayers, it is eventually His enemies’ blood that spurts on His Coat the day of His Vengeance (Revelation 19,15 / Revelation 14,19-20).
“There was none to help” because everyone has abandoned Him, either the Jews supposed to believe in Him as the announced Messiah, or the people of the church who have all betrayed Him supporting the Antichrist. “and my own arm had saved for me”. His arm would have been the Angel of the Revelation who has assumed his mission, alone against all, and the “children of Fatima”, who have hurled themselves in this holy Battle. (see also Isaiah 59,15-20).
Jeremiah 50,29-32: (The prophecies against Babylon can be applied today to Israel. See Revelation 18). “…Declare to many against Babylon, to all that bend the bow: stand together against her round about, and let nose escape; pay her according to her work: according to all that she had done, do you to her: for she had lifted up herself against the Yahweh, against the Holy One of Israel. Therefore shall her young men fall in her streets: and all her men of war shall hold their peace in that day, said Yahweh. Behold I come against you, O proud one, said Yahweh: for your Day is come, the time of your visitation. And the proud one shall fall, he shall fall down, and there shall be none to lift him up: and I will kindle a fire in his cities, and it shall devour all round about him…”
Jeremiah 51,2-57: (compare to Revelation 18) Prophecy against Babylon: “And I will send to Babylon fanners, and they shall fan her, and shall destroy her land: for they are come upon her on every side in the Day of her Affliction… Flee you from the midst of Babylon, and let every one save his own life: be not silent upon her iniquity: for it is the time of revenge from Yahweh, he will render unto her what she had deserved. Babylon had been a golden cup in the hand of Yahweh, that made all the earth drunk: the nations have drunk of her wine, and therefore they have staggered. Babylon is suddenly fallen, and destroyed: howl for her, take balm for her pain, if so she may be healed. We would have cured Babylon, but she is not healed: let us forsake her, and let us go every man to his own land: because her judgment had reached even to the heavens, and is lifted up to the clouds. The Lord had brought forth our justices: Come, and let us declare in Zion the work of Yahweh our God… O you that dwells upon many waters, rich in treasures, your end is come for your entire destruction… You dashed together for me the weapons of war, and with you I will dash nations together, and with you I will destroy kingdoms, and with you I will break in pieces the horse, and his rider, and with you I will break in pieces the chariot, and him that gets up into it: and with you I will break in pieces man and woman, and with you I will break in pieces the old man and the child, and with you I will break in pieces the young man and the virgin: and with you I will break in pieces the shepherd and his flock, and with you I will break in pieces the husbandman and his yoke of oxen, and with you I will break in pieces captains and rulers. And I will render to Babylon, and to all the inhabitants of Chaldea all their evil, that they have done in Zion, before your eyes, said Yahweh. Behold I come against you, you destroying mountain, said Yahweh, which corrupted the whole earth: and I will stretch out my hand upon you, and will roll thee down from the rocks, and will make you a burnt mountain (Revelation 8,8). And they shall not take of you a stone for the corner, nor a stone for foundations (Jesus is the one and only Messiah, there will be no other…), but you shall be destroyed for ever, said Yahweh… And the heavens and the earth, and all things that are in them shall give praise for Babylon: for spoilers shall come to her from the north, said Yahweh… And I will make her princes drunk, and her wise men, and her captains, and her rulers, and her valiant men: and they shall sleep an everlasting sleep, and shall awake no more, said the King whose name is Yahweh.”
Isaiah 47,7-11: (This text refers to Babylon) “And you had said: ‘I shall be a sovereign for ever’: you had not laid these things to your heart, neither had you remembered your latter end. And now hear these things, you that are delicate, and dwelled confidently, that said in your heart: ‘I am, and there is none else besides me: I shall not sit as a widow, and I shall not know barrenness’. These two things shall come upon you suddenly in one day, barrenness and widowhood. All things are come upon you, because of the multitude of your sorceries, and for the great hardness of your enchanters. And you had trusted in your wickedness, and had said: ‘There is none that sees me’. Your wisdom, and your knowledge, this had deceived you. And you had said in your heart: ‘I am, and besides me there is no other’. Evil shall come upon you, and then shall not know the rising thereof: and calamity shall fall violently upon you, which you can not keep off: misery shall come upon you suddenly, which you shall not know.”
Ezekiel 38,18-23: “And it shall come to pass in that day, in the day of the coming of Gog (actual Israel, see Revelation 20,7) upon the land of Israel (Palestine), said Yahweh, that my indignation shall come up in my wrath. And I have spoken in my zeal, and in the fire of my anger, that in that day there shall be a great commotion upon the land of Israel: So that the fishes of the sea, and the birds of the air, and the beasts of the field, and every creeping thing that creeps upon the ground, and all men that are upon the face of the earth, shall be moved at my presence: and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the hedges shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground. And I will call in the sword against him in all my mountains, said Yahweh: every man’s sword shall be pointed against his brother. And I will judge him with pestilence, and with blood, and with violent rain, and vast hailstones: I will rain fire and brimstone upon him, and upon his army, and upon the many nations that are with him. And I will be magnified, and I will be sanctified: and I will be known in the eyes of many nations: and they shall know that I am Yahweh.”
Ezekiel 39,1-20: “…And you, O son of man, said Yahweh, say to every fowl, and to all the birds, and to all the beasts of the field: Assemble yourselves, make haste, come together from every side to my victim, which I slay for you, a great victim upon the mountains of Israel: to eat flesh, and drink blood. You shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and you shall drink the blood of the princes of the earth, of rams, and of lambs, and of he goats, and bullocks, and of all that are well fed and fat. And you shall eat the fat till you be full, and shall drink blood till you be drunk of the victim which I shall slay for you. And you shall be filled at my table with horses, and mighty horsemen, and all the men of war, said Yahweh.” (compare to Revelation 19,17-18).
Read also Isaiah 14,3-24 (it applies to Babylon. Therefore the modern Israel; verse 2 is a Zionist addition).
All these extremely strong prophecies about the Day of Yahweh, the Day of God’s Vengeance make us realize the whole Brightness of the divine Plan revealed in the least details in the Old Testament with the same words disclosed centuries later in the Revelation. Our Dad’s Genius only could do that with such a keenness along the ages.
In this light we better understand these words of the Revelation:
“But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound the trumpet, the mystery of God shall be finished, as he had declared by his servants the prophets” (Revelation 10,7).
What He had declared is the fall of the Beast. By that the “mystery of God” will be finished, that is to say all the prophecies of the Old Testament will accomplish and will become clear.
This will be the time when “vision and prophecy” will be sealed according to the words revealed to the prophet Daniel that have the same meaning:
“Seventy weeks (symbolic; the whole history of salvation up to the end of times) are shortened upon your people, and upon your holy city, that (Zionist) transgression may be finished, and sin may have an end, and iniquity may be abolished; and everlasting justice may be brought; and vision and prophecy may be fulfilled; and the saint of Saints may be anointed…” (Daniel 9,24).
“To anoint the saint of Saints” is to proclaim the word of triumph:
“The Kingdom of this world is become our Lord’s and his Christ’s, and he shall reign for ever and ever…” (Revelation 11,15).
All the above mentioned prophecies will be “sealed” with the next fall of the Beast and the Triumph of our Father and His Christ, Jesus, recognized as the only King.
“Amen, yes come Lord Jesus…” (Revelation 22,21).
After all these biblical verses about God’s punishment in the Day of Yahweh, it is good to concentrate a little bit upon the Consolation promised to the chosen ones after these dark days. The Day of Yahweh will be the Day of the Consolation of all those who abode by God’s Plan revealed in John’s Revelation.
On that day, our Father will spread with profusion the Holy Spirit on His faithful ones:
Joel 3,1-4: “After this, I will pour out my Spirit on all humanity. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions; and also on male and female slaves in those days I will pour out my Spirit. I will show wonders in the sky and on earth blood, fire and columns of smoke. The sun will be turned into darkness and the moon into blood before the coming of the great and terrible Day of Yahweh! At that time, whoever calls on the name of Yahweh will be saved, for in mount Zion and Jerusalem there will be those who escape as Yahweh has promised; among the survivors will be those whom Yahweh has called” (it is the “small remnant”).
“The moon into blood” represents today’s wars in the Muslim world. In Revelation 12,1 Mary has the moon under her feet. The children of Fatima bring our Mother. Their testimony against the Antichrist up to the martyrdom equals a baptism of blood.
“Whoever calls on the name of Yahweh will be saved…” To call on Yahweh’s name today corresponds to what Jesus has said to the Jews: “For I say to you, you shall not see me henceforth till you say: Blessed is he that comes in the name of the Lord!” (Matthew 23,39). To invoke Yahweh’s name is therefore to recognize that Jesus is the Messiah who “comes in the name of the Lord”. In our days we need even to recognize Jesus’ Return through His Angel by the “open book” of the Revelation (Revelation 10,3; see “The Key of The Revelation”). This Angel denounces the Antichrist and inaugurates the new times.
Jesus returns by His Spirit. And we have been given this Spirit by this Angel through all his biblical-Qur’anic teachings.
Joel 3,16-18: “And the Lord shall roar out of Zion (the Clamour of the Angel of Revelation, Revelation 10,3), and utter his voice from (Heavenly) Jerusalem: and the heavens and the earth shall be moved, and Yahweh shall be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel (the true “Israel”). And you shall know that I am Yahweh your God, dwelling in Zion my holy mountain: and (Heavenly) Jerusalem shall be holy and strangers shall pass through it no more. And it shall come to pass in that day, that the mountains shall drop down new wine (Symbol of the Restoration), and the hills shall flow with milk (purity): and waters shall flow through all the rivers of Juda (abundance of the Spirit): and a fountain shall come forth of the house of Yahweh, and shall water the torrent of thorns.”
In those times God will be a fortress for His people, the “mountains shall drop down new wine”. It is the Consolation of the Bread of Life in the family. To be admitted to it one needs to come up very high in spirit and to accept the prophetic word of the Open Book of the Revelation to be on the “mountain” of the Universal Restoration.
Isaiah 29,17-18: “Is it not yet a very little while, and Libanus shall be turned into charmel, and charmel shall be esteemed as a forest? And in that day the deaf shall hear the words of the book, and out of darkness and obscurity the eyes of the blind shall see.”
On that Day a book will bring us the light. It is the book of the Revelation opened by Jesus in Lebanon.
Eternal praise be to our Father for all His Kindness.
Isaiah 25,1-9: “Yahweh, you are my God, I will exalt you, and give glory to your name: for you had done wonderful things, your designs of old faithful, amen. For you had reduced the city to a heap (Jerusalem), the strong city to ruin, the house of strangers, to be no city, and to be no more built up for ever. Therefore shall a strong people praise you, the city of mighty nations shall fear you. Because you had been a strength to the poor, a strength to the needy in his distress: a refuge from the whirlwind, a shadow from the heat. For the blast of the mighty is like a whirlwind beating against a wall. You shall bring down the tumult of strangers, as heat in thirst: and as with heat under a burning cloud, you shall make the branch of the mighty to wither away. And Yahweh shall make unto all people in this mountain, a feast of fat things, a feast of wine, of fat things full of marrow, of wine purified from the lees. And he shall destroy in this mountain the face of the bond with which all people were tied (it is the bond of the Zionist lie), and the web that he began over all nations. He shall cast death down headlong for ever (Revelation 21,4 / 20,13): and the Lord Yahweh shall wipe away tears from every face, and the reproach of his people he shall take away from off the whole earth: for Yahweh had spoken it. And they shall say in that day: Look, this is our God, we have waited for him, and he will save us: this is Yahweh, we have patiently waited for him, we shall rejoice and be joyful in his salvation…”
Our Father prepares for us a Feast on “this mountain”. This Feast is the Feast of the Knowledge by the open books (Revelation 20,12), the Feast of the Bread of Life (Revelation 3,20 / 19,9), and finally the feast “to eat the flesh” of God’s enemies (Revelation 19,17-18), that is to say to pray for their defeat, and to rejoice for God’s Triumph (compare to Matthew 22).
All this knowledge and active participation to God’s Plan is a Resurrection to us, that will be generalized after the fall of the Beast.
Isaiah 60,1-22: “Arise, be enlightened, O Jerusalem: for your light is come, and the glory of Yahweh is risen upon you. For behold darkness shall cover the earth, and a mist the people: but Yahweh shall arise upon you, and his glory shall be seen upon you. And the Gentiles shall walk in your light, and kings in the brightness of your rising. Lift up your eyes round about, and see: all these are gathered together, they are come to you: your sons shall come from afar, and your daughters shall rise up at your side. Then shall you see, and abound, and your heart shall wonder and be enlarged, when the (spiritual) riches of the sea shall be converted to you, the strength of the Gentiles shall come to you… The glory of Lebanon (the glory of the Angel of Revelation and of the “children of Fatima”) shall come to you, the cypress, and the box tree, and the pine tree together, to beautify the place of my sanctuary: and I will glorify the place of my feet. And the children of them that afflict you, shall come bowing down to you, and all that slandered you shall worship the steps of your feet, and shall call you the “City of Yahweh” (the Heavenly Jerusalem), “Zion of the Holy One of Israel” (Zion is one of the hill of Jerusalem, the spiritual Zion is the spiritual Jerusalem, see Revelation 14,1). Because you was forsaken, and hated, and there was none that passed through you, I will make you to be an everlasting glory, a joy unto generation and generation… You shall no more have the sun for your light by day, neither shall the brightness of the moon enlighten you: but Yahweh shall be unto you for an everlasting light, and your God for your glory. Your sun shall go down no more, and your moon shall not decrease: for Yahweh shall be unto you for an everlasting light, and the days of your mourning shall be ended. And your people shall be all just, they shall inherit the land for ever (the inner spiritual kingdom), the branch of my planting, the work of my hand to glorify me. The least shall become a thousand (fruitful spiritual work, many souls clarified), and a little one a most strong nation: I Yahweh will suddenly do this thing in its time (to compare to Revelation 21 and 22).”
Some sentences of Isaiah 60 sounding Zionist have not been mentioned above. For example: “And you shall suck the milk of the Gentiles, and you shall be nursed with the riches of kings” (Isaiah 60,16). The prophet wrote through the prism of the Zionist mentality. We need to recognize it.
Finally the Messiah Himself speaks through the prophet Isaiah’s mouth about this great deliverance that will be followed by the universal Restoration with the new “priests of Yahweh”.
Isaiah 61,1-11: “The spirit Yahweh is upon me, because Yahweh had anointed me (it is therefore a prophecy about the Messiah who speaks ): he had sent me to preach to the meek, to heal the contrite of heart, and to preach a release to the captives, and deliverance to them that are shut up. To proclaim the acceptable year of Yahweh, and the day of vengeance of our God: to comfort all that mourn: ( To appoint to the mourners of Zion; addition), and to give them a crown for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, a garment of praise for the spirit of grief: and they shall be called in it the mighty ones of justice, the planting of Yahweh to glorify him. And they shall build the places that have been waste from of old, and shall raise up ancient ruins (the Restoration), and shall repair the desolate cities, that were destroyed for generation and generation. And strangers shall stand and shall feed your flocks (opening to all people): and the sons of strangers shall be your husbandmen, and the dressers of your vines. But you shall be called the priests of Yahweh: to you it shall be said: You ministers of our God: you shall eat the (spiritual) riches of the Gentiles, and you shall pride yourselves in their glory. For your double confusion and shame, they shall praise their pare: therefore shall they receive double in their land, everlasting joy shall be unto them. For I am Yahweh that love judgment, and hate robbery in a holocaust: and I will make their work in truth, and I will make a perpetual covenant with them. And they shall know their seed among the Gentiles, and their offspring in the midst of peoples: all that shall see them, shall know them, that these are the seed which Yahweh had blessed. I will greatly rejoice in Yahweh, and my soul shall be joyful in my God: for he had clothed me with the garments of salvation: and with the robe of justice he had covered me, as a bridegroom decked with a crown, and as a bride adorned with her jewels. For as the earth brings forth her bud, and as the garden causes her seed to shoot forth: so shall the Lord Yahweh make justice to spring forth, and praise before all the nations.”
Isaiah 66,10-16: “Rejoice with (Heavenly) Jerusalem, and be glad with her, all you that love her: rejoice for joy with her, all you that mourn for her. Before she was in labour: That you may suck, and be filled with the breasts of her consolations: that you may milk out, and flow with delights, from the abundance of her glory. For thus said Yahweh: Behold I will bring upon her as it were a river of peace, and as an overflowing torrent the glory of the Gentiles, which you shall suck; you shall be carried at the breasts, and upon the knees they shall caress you. As one whom the mother caresses, so will I comfort you, and you shall be comforted in Jerusalem. You shall see and your heart shall rejoice, and your bones shall flourish like an herb, and the hand of Yahweh shall be known to his servants, and he shall be angry with his enemies. For behold Yahweh will come with fire, and his chariots are like a whirlwind, to render his wrath in indignation, and his rebuke with flames of fire. For Yahweh shall judge by fire, and by his sword unto all flesh, and the slain of Yahweh shall be many.”
And finally our Father encourages all those who bend under the burden of the final Battle, in which we are now, by these words that are addressed to us:
Isaiah 35,3-10: “Strengthen you the feeble hands, and confirm the weak knees. Say to the fainthearted: Take courage, and fear not: behold your God will bring the revenge of recompense: God himself will come and will save you… And a path and a way shall be there, and it shall be called the holy way: the unclean shall not pass over it, and this shall be unto you a straight way, so that fools shall not err therein. No lion shall be there, nor shall any mischievous beast go up by it (the two Beast will be no longer…), nor be found there: but they shall walk there that shall be delivered. And the redeemed of Yahweh shall return, and shall come into Zion (Heavenly Jerusalem) with praise, and everlasting joy shall be upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and mourning shall flee away.”
God will be exalted
The Day of Yahweh will reveal before all people God’s Greatness. On that day God will be exalted:
Isaiah 2,10-21: “Enter you into the rock, and hide you in the pit from the face of the Fear of Yahweh, and from the glory of his majesty. The lofty eyes of man are humbled, and the haughtiness of men shall be made to stoop: and Yahweh alone shall be exalted in that day. Because the day of Yahweh shall be upon every one that is proud and high-minded, and upon every one that is arrogant, and he shall be humbled…”
Isaiah 28,5-6: “In that day Yahweh shall be a crown of glory, and a garland of joy to the residue of his people: And a spirit of judgment to him that sits in judgment, and strength to them that return out of the battle to the gate.”
The battle at the door is actually intense and multiple either on a physical plan (all the unfair wars in the Middle East) or spiritual. We will win as our Father is our “strength”.
Isaiah 40,1-5 and 9-11: “Be comforted, be comforted, my people, said your God. Speak you to the heart of Jerusalem, and call to her: for her evil is come to an end, her iniquity is forgiven: she had received of the hand of Yahweh double for all her sins. The voice of one crying in the desert: Prepare you the way of Yahweh, make straight in the wilderness the paths of our God. Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low, and the crooked shall become straight, and the rough ways plain. And the glory of Yahweh shall be revealed, and all flesh together shall see, that the mouth of Yahweh had spoken… Get you up upon a high mountain, you that bringest good tidings to Zion (it is the Angel of Revelation who rises up to the Zenith: Revelation 8,13 / 14,6): lift up your voice with strength (a powerful voice, Revelation 14,7), you that brings good tidings to Jerusalem: lift it up, fear not. Say to the cities of Judah: Behold your God: Behold the Lord Yahweh shall come with strength (the Return of Jesus), and his arm shall rule: Behold his reward is with him and his work is before him. He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather together the lambs with his arm, and shall take them up in his bosom, and he himself shall carry them that are with young.”
He leads us softly to the Source of the water of Life by Jesus, the Good Shepherd (John 10) and His apocalyptic envoy.
In the New Testament, Jesus has prophesied the coming of the Day of Yahweh as being a Day of great Tribulation. It will also be “the Day when the Son of man shall be revealed” (Luke 17,30). He has spoken to us about the Signs of His Coming at the end of Times.
Jesus has even indicated the attitude to have in those times:
It is about “to stay awake”, “not to seek to save one’s life, but to lose it, in order to preserve it”, not to be overcharged with “surfeiting and drunkenness, and the cares of this life”, “to pray at all times, that we may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that are to come, and to stand before the Son of man”. Finally to participate to His great Feast of the Triumph we need to “wear the wedding garment”.
Talking about His Return Jesus said:
Matthew 24,26-31: “If therefore they shall say to you: Behold he is in the desert, go you not out: Behold he is in the closets, believe it not. For as lightning comes out of the east, and appears even into the west: so shall the coming of the Son of man be. Wheresoever the body shall be, there shall the eagles also be gathered together. And immediately after the tribulation of those days, the sun shall be darkened and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of heaven shall be moved: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all tribes of the earth mourn: and they shall see the Son of man coming in the (inner) clouds of heaven with much power and majesty. And he shall send his angels with a trumpet (the book of the Revelation “open”), and a great voice: and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the farehest pares of the heavens to the utmost bounds of them.”
These Angels sent in mission must stay awake and help the others to wake up:
Matthew 24,42: “Watch you therefore, because you know not what hour your Lord will come.”
On that Day everything that has been prophesied will accomplish:
Luke 21,20-22: “And when you shall see Jerusalem compassed about with an army; then know that the desolation thereof is at hand. Then let those who are in Judea, flee to the mountains; and those who are in the midst there of the city (Jerusalem), depare out: and those who are in the countries, not enter into it. For these are the days of vengeance, that all things may be fulfilled, that are written.”
Everything written by the prophets of the Old Testament shall accomplish.
A very great sign of the coming of this Day is that Jerusalem is “compassed about with an army”. It is since 1967 that the whole Jerusalem has been compassed. Its desolation is therefore very close (Revelation 20,7-9).
It will be a day of great tribulation as it has never been before:
Mark 13,19-20: “For in those days shall be such tribulations, as were not from the beginning of the creation which God created until now, neither shall be (see Daniel 12,1). And unless the Lord had shortened the days, no flesh should be saved: but for the sake of the elect which he had chosen, he had shortened the days.”
For our sake, we the chosen ones, the Lord will shorten those days. Otherwise we would have been swallowed up either spiritually or physically.
Jesus warned the Jews who were closed towards Him by saying to them:
Luke 13,35: “Behold your house shall be left to you desolate. And I say to you, that you shall not see me till the time come, when you shall say: Blessed is he that comes in the name of the Lord.”
Therefore until the Day when they will recognize His Messiahnism and His Return.
Finally Jesus talked to us about the rapidity of His Return and of His Day. It comes as the lightening and many will be surprised:
Luke 17,24-37: “For as the lightning that lightens from under heaven, shines unto the pares that are under heaven, so shall the Son of man be in his day… And as it came to pass in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. They did eat and drink, they married wives, and were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark: and the flood came and destroyed them all. Likewise as it came to pass, in the days of Lot: they did eat and drink, they bought and sold, they planted and built. And in the day that Lot went out of Sodom, it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man shall be revealed. In that hour, he that shall be on the housetop, and his goods in the house, let him not go down to take them away (no material worries): and he that shall be in the field, in like manner, let him not return back. Remember Lot’s wife. Whosoever shall seek to save his life, shall lose it: and whosoever shall lose it, shall preserve it. I say to you: in that night there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left. Two women shall be grinding together: the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left: two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left. They answering, say to him: Where, Lord? Who said to them: Wheresoever the body shall be, thither will the eagles also be gathered together (see Revelation 19,17)”.
Eventually Jesus warns us against the everyday heaviness and He asks us to stay awake for His Return:
Luke 21,34-36: “And take heed to yourselves, lest perhaps your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting and drunkenness, and the cares of this life, and that day come upon you suddenly. For as a snare shall it come upon all that sit upon the face of the whole earth. Watch you, therefore, praying at all times, that you may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that are to come, and to stand before the Son of man.”
Those who will stand before the Son of man are those who will have kept the wedding dress:
Matthew 22,1-14: “And Jesus answering, spoke again in parables to them, saying: ‘The kingdom of heaven is likened to a king, who made a marriage for his son. And he sent his servants, to call them that were invited to the marriage; and they would not come. Again he sent other servants, saying: Tell them that were invited, Behold, I have prepared my dinner; my calves and fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come you to the marriage… And the king went in to see the guests: and he saw there a man who had not on a wedding garment. And he said to him: Friend, how came you in hither not having a wedding garment? But he was silent. Then the king said to the waiters: Bind his hands and feet, and cast him into the exterior darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”
The wedding dress is the true love, the deep knowledge of the Holy Scriptures, the justice, the firmness and the forgiveness from the bottom of the heart of a repented brother.
Peter and Paul also spoke about Jesus’ Return and they recommended us to be “irreproachable”, to be “children of light”, and to “put on the breastplate of faith and love”:
1 Corinthians 1,7-9: “So that nothing is wanting to you in any grace, waiting for the Revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ. Who also will confirm you unto the end without crime, in the day of the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is faithful: by whom you are called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord”.
1 Thessalonians 5,2-8: “For yourselves know perfectly, that the day of the Lord shall so come, as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, peace and security; then shall sudden destruction come upon them, as the pains upon her that is with child, and they shall not escape. But you, brothers, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. For all you are the children of light, and children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore, let us not sleep, as others do; but let us watch, and be sober. For they that sleep, sleep in the night; and they that are drunk, are drunk in the night. But let us, who are of the day, be sober, having on the breastplate of faith and love, and for a helmet the hope of salvation.”
2 Thessalonians 1,3-10: “…Seeing it is a just thing with God to repay tribulation to them that trouble you: And to you who are troubled, rest with us when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven, with the angels of his power (the power of the Holy Spirit), in a flame of fire, giving vengeance to them who know not God, and who obey not the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. Who shall suffer eternal punishment in destruction, from the face of the Lord, and from the glory of his power: When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be made wonderful in all them who have believed; because our testimony was believed upon you in that day.”
Hebrews 10,23-25: “Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering for he is faithful that had promised, And let us consider one another, to provoke unto charity and to good works: Not forsaking our assembly, as some are accustomed; but comforting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.”
2 Peter 3,7-13: “But the heavens and the earth which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of Judgment and perdition of the ungodly men. But of this one thing be not ignorant, my beloved, that one day with the Lord is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord delays not his promise, as some imagine, but deals patiently for your sake, not willing that any should perish, but that all should return to penance. But the Day of the Lord shall come as a thief, in which the heavens shall pass away with great violence, and the elements shall be melted with heat, and the earth and the works which are in it, shall be burnt up. Seeing then that all these things are to be dissolved, what manner of people ought you to be in holy conversation and godliness? Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the Day of the Lord, by which the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with the burning heat? But we look for new heavens and a new earth according to his promises, in which justice dwells.”
Before the Greatness of our Dad’s Plan, announced in the least details by the prophets of the Old Testament, by Jesus and by the Apostles, a Plan unfolding today before our eyes with our participation, we cannot help joining to the marvellous Praise Song of the Revelation:
At the opening of the Book of Revelation:
Revelation 5,12-14: “The Lamb that was slain is worthy to receive power, and divinity, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and benediction. And every creature, which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them: I heard all saying: ‘To him that sits on the throne, and to the Lamb, benediction, and honour, and glory, and power, for ever and ever’. And the four Living Creatures said: ‘Amen’. And the four and twenty Ancients fell down on their faces, and adored him that lives for ever and ever.”
At the 7th trumpet, the time of the fall:
Revelation 11,15-17: “‘The kingdom of this world is become our Lord’s and his Christ’s, and he shall reign for ever and ever. Amen’. And the four and twenty Ancients, who sit on their seats in the sight of God, fell on their faces and adored God, saying: ‘We give you thanks, O Lord God Almighty, who are, and who was, and who are to come: because you had taken to you your great power, and you had reigned’.”
After the fall of the Beast:
Revelation 19,1-4: “…‘Alleluia. Salvation, and glory, and power is to our God. For true and just are his judgments, who had judged the great Prostitute “already denounced in the Old Testament” which corrupted the earth with her fornication, and had revenged the blood of his servants, at her hands’. And again they said: Alleluia. And her smoke ascends for ever and ever. And the four and twenty Ancients, and the four Living Creatures fell down and adored God that sits upon the throne, saying: Amen! Alleluia!”
