Daniel 2
Challoner-Rheims Version
.
1-2
In the second year of his reign, King Nabuchodonosor had a dream which left   his spirit no rest and robbed him of his sleep. So he ordered that the magicians, enchanters, sorcerers and Chaldeans be summoned to interpret his dream.
.
586 BC
.
.
27-48
In the king’s presence Daniel made this reply:
.
“The mystery about which the king has inquired, the wise men, enchanters, magicians and astrologers could not explain to the king. But there is a God in heaven who reveals mysteries, and he has shown King Nabuchodonosor what is to happen in days to come; this was the dream you saw as you lay in bed. To you in your bed there came thoughts about what should happen in the future, and he who reveals mysteries showed you what is to be. To me also this mystery has been revealed; not that I am wiser than any other living person, but in order that its meaning may be made known to the king, that you may understand the thoughts in your own mind.
.
“In your vision, O king, you saw a statue, very large and exceedingly bright, terrifying in appearance as it stood before you. the head of the statue was pure gold, its chest and arms were silver, its belly and thighs bronze, the legs iron, its feet partly iron and partly tile. While you looked at the statue, a stone which was hewn from a mountain without a hand being put to it, struck its iron and tile feet, breaking them in pieces. The iron, tile, bronze, silver, and gold all crumbled at once, fine as the chaff on the threshing floor in summer, and the wind blew them away without leaving a trace. But the stone that struck the statue became a great mountain and filled the whole earth.
.
“This was the dream; the interpretation we shall also give in the king’s presence. You, O king, are the king of kings; to you the God of heaven has given dominion and strength, power and glory; men, wild beasts, and birds of the air, wherever they may dwell, he has handed over to you, making you ruler over them all; you are the head of gold. Another kingdom shall take your place, inferior to yours, then a third kingdom, of bronze, which shall rule over the whole earth. There shall be a fourth kingdom, strong as iron; it shall break in pieces and subdue all these others, just as iron breaks in pieces and crushes everything else. The feet and toes you saw, partly of potter’s tile and partly of iron, mean that it shall be a divided kingdom, but yet have some of the hardness of iron. As you saw the iron mixed with clay tile, and the toes partly iron and partly tile, the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly fragile. The iron mixed with clay tile means that they shall seal their aliances by intermarriage, but they shall not stay united, any more than iron mixes with clay.
.
“In the lifetime of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that shall never be destroyed or delivered up to another people; rather, it shall break in pieces all these kingdoms and put an end to them, and it shall stand forever.      That is the meaning of the stone you saw hewn from the mountain without a hand being put to it, which broke in pieces the tile, iron, bronze, silver and gold. The great God has revealed to the king what shall be in the future; this is exactly what you dreamed, and its meaning is sure.”
.
Then King Nabuchodonosor fell down and worshiped Daniel and ordered sacrifice and incense offered to him. To Daniel the king said, “Truly your God is the God of gods and Lord of kings and a revealer of mysteries; that is why you were able to reveal this mystery.” He advanced Daniel to a high post, gave him many generous presents, made him ruler of the whole province of Babylon and chief prefect over all the wise men of Babylon.
.
.
The five kingdoms represented by the parts of the statue were
Babylon, Media, Persia, Greece and an alliance of Egypt and Syria.
The ‘stone hewn from a mountain’ represents Jesus Christ and the mountain
is the Jewish people. The great mountain that the stone became is Christianity.

He received dominion, glory, and kingship; nations and peoples of every language serve him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion that shall not be taken away, his kingship shall not be destroyed.

Apocalypse 13
.
1
And I saw a beast coming up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon its horns ten diadems, and upon its heads blasphemous names.
.
seven heads : seven countries, 587 BC – 1945 AD :
Babylon, Media, Persia, Greece, Syria, Rome and Germany
.
.
2
And the beast that I saw was like a leopard, and its feet were like the feet of a bear, and its mouth like the mouth of a lion. And the dragon gave it his own might and great authority.
.
the dragon :  the Wehrmacht   (the German army)
the beast :  “Deutsches Reich”   (Germany, 1914)
.
3
And one of its heads was smitten, as it were, unto death; but its deadly wound was healed. And all the earth followed the beast in wonder.
.
Germany was defeated in the first World War but rose up again under Hitler.
.
.
4-5
And they worshipped the dragon because he gave authority to the beast, and they worshipped the beast, saying “Who is like to the beast, and who will be able to fight with it?” And there was given to it a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and there was given to it authority to work for forty-two months.
.
From the beginning of World War I until the liberation of Jerusalem at the end of December 1917 was forty-two months of the Hebrew calendar.
.
.
6-7
And it opened its mouth for blasphemies against God, to blaspheme his name and his tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven. And it was allowed to wage war with the saints and to overcome them. And there was given to it authority over every tribe and people, and tongue, and nation.
.
Every part of the world was affected by the World Wars.
.
.
8-14
And all the inhabitants of the earth will worship it whose names have not been
written in the book of life of the Lamb who has been slain from the foundation
of the world. If any man has an ear, let him hear. He who is for captivity, into
captivity he goes; he who kills by the sword, by the sword must he be killed.
Here is the patience and the faith of the saints. And I saw another beast
coming up out of the earth, and it had two horns like to those of a lamb,
but it spoke as does a dragon.

And it exercised all the authority of the former beast in its sight; and it made the earth and the inhabitants therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. And it did great signs, so as even to make fire come down from heaven in the sight of mankind. And it leads astray the inhabitants of the earth, by reason of the signs which it was permitted to do in the sight of the beast, telling the inhabitants of the earth to make an image to the beast which has the wound of the sword, and yet lived.
.
the first beast : Imperial Germany
the second beast : Nazi Germany
.
.
15
And it was permitted to give life to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause that whoever should not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
.
With the invention of motion pictures and Nazi propaganda films this was fulfilled.
.
.
16-17
And it will cause all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free and the bond, to have  mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and it will bring it about that no one may be able to buy or sell, except him who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of its name.
.
forehead : the mind : belief in fascism
right hand : the will, choice : obedience to fascism
buy or sell : all businesses required government approval
.
18
Here is wisdom. He who has understanding, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man; and its number is six hundred and sixty-six.
.
The number of a man is found using gemmatria to calculate the numbers of his name, date and day of the week of his birth. The beast is a country with the number of a man. Its birthday is the beginning of its war of conquest.

666

 

 

From 1871-1945 Germany was called ‘Deutsches Reich’
World War I began on Saturday, August 1, 1914

Psalm 14
The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” Such are corrupt; they do abominable deeds; there is not one who does good. The Lord looks down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there be one who is wise and seeks God. All alike have gone astray; there is not one who does good, not even one. Will all these evildoers never learn, they who eat up my people just as they eat bread? They have not called upon the Lord; then they shall be in great fear, for God is with the just generation. You would confound the plans of the afflicted,  but the Lord is his refuge. Oh, that out of Sion would come the salvation of Israel! When the Lord restores the well-being of his people, then shall Jacob exult and Israel be glad.

Psalm 110
The Lord said to my Lord: ‘Sit at my right hand till I make your enemies your footstool.’ The sceptor of your power the Lord will stretch forth from Sion:
‘Rule in the midst of your enemies. Yours is princely power in the day of your birth, in holy splendor; before the daystar, like the dew, I have begotten you.’
The Lord has sworn, and he will not repent: ‘You are a priest forever, according to the order of Melchisedec.’ The Lord is at your right hand; he will crush kings on the day of his wrath. He will do judgment on the nations, heaping up corpses; he will crush heads over the wide earth. From the brook by the wayside he will drink; therefore will he lift up his head.

Apocalypse 6

1-2
And I saw that the Lamb had opened the first of the seven seals, and I heard one of the four living creatures saying, as with a voice of thunder, “Come!” And I saw, and behold, a white horse, and he who was sitting on it had a bow, and there was given him a crown, and he went forth as a conqueror to conquer.

conqueror :  Kaiser Wilhelm II
.

3-4
And when he opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, “Come!” And there went forth another horse, a red one; and to him who was sitting on it, it was given to take peace from the earth, and that men should kill one another, and there was given him a great sword.

World War I
.

5-6
And when he opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature saying, “Come!” And I saw, and behold, a black horse, and he who was sitting on it had a balance in his hand. And I heard as it were a voice in the midst of the four living creatures, saying, “A measure of wheat for a denarius, and three measures of barley for a denarius, and do not harm the wine and the oil.”

Widespread famine killed millions in Russia, Germany, France, Lebanon and Persia.
.

7-8
And when he opened the fourth seal I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, “Come!” And I saw, a pale-green horse, and he who was sitting on it —  his name is Death, and hell was following him.  And there was given him power over the four parts of the earth, to kill with sword, with famine, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.

Pestilence :  many died of typhoid, cholera and other diseases during World War 1
estimates vary between 50-100 million people killed by influenza in 1918-19
.

9-17
And when he opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God, and for the witness that they bore. And they cried with a loud voice, saying, “How long, O Lord (holy and true), dost thou refrain from judging and from avenging our blood on those who dwell on the earth?” And there was given to each of them a white robe; and they were told to rest a little while longer, until the number of their brethren who are to be slain, even as they had been, should be complete.

Israel would not be restored as a nation until after the Holocaust thirty years later.
.

And I saw, when he opened the sixth seal, and there was a great earthquake, and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair; and the whole moon became as blood. And the stars of heaven fell upon the earth, as the fig tree sheds its unripe figs when it is shaken by a great wind. And heaven passed away as a scroll that is rolled up; and every mountain and the islands were moved out of their places. And the kings of the earth, and the princes, and the tribunes, and the rich, and
the strong, and everyone, bond and free, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains. And they said to the mountains and to the rocks,
“Fall upon us, and hide us from the face of him who sits upon the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb; for the great day of their wrath has come, and who is able to stand?”

and upon those who worshipped its image.

And after this I looked, and behold, the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony was opened in heaven, and there came forth out of the temple the seven angels  who had the seven plagues, clothed with clean white linen, and girt about their breasts with golden girdles. And one of the four living creatures gave to the seven angels seven golden bowls, full of the wrath of God who lives forever and ever. And the temple was filled with smoke from the majesty of God, and from his power; and no one could enter into the temple till the seven plagues of the seven angels were finished.

no one could enter into the temple :  these prophecies will not be understood until after the events have occurred.

Apocalypse 9

1-3
And the fifth angel sounded the trumpet and I saw that a star had fallen from heaven upon the earth, and there was given to him the key of the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit, and there came up smoke out of the pit like the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by the smoke of the pit. And out of the smoke there came forth locusts upon the earth. And there was given to them power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.

And in appearance the locusts were like horses made ready for battle; and there were on their heads crowns as it were like gold; and their faces were like the faces of men. And they had hair like the hair of women; and their teeth were like the teeth of lions. And they had breastplates like breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was like the sound of many horse-chariots running to battle. And they had tails like those of scorpions and there were stings in their tails; and they had power to harm mankind for five months.

And this is how I saw the horses in the vision: they who sat upon them had breastplates like to fire and to hyacinth and to sulphur, and the heads of the horses were like the heads of lions; and from their mouths issued fire and smoke and sulphur. By these three plagues the third part of mankind was killed, by the fire and the smoke and the sulphur which issued from their mouth. For the power of the horses is in their mouths and in their tails. For their tails are like serpents, and have heads, and with them they do harm.

2 Thessalonians 2:9-12
And his coming is according to the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, and with all wicked deception to those who are perishing. For they have not received the love of truth that they might be saved. Therefore God sends them a misleading influence that they may believe falsehood, that all may be judged who have not believed the truth, but have preferred wickedness.

.

from “The Rise And Fall Of The Third Reich”
by William L. Shirer:

With all the resources of the national and Prussian governments at their disposal and with plenty of money from big business in their coffers, the Nazis carried on an election propaganda such as Germany had never seen before. For the first time the State-run radio carried the voices of Hitler, Goering and Goebbels to every corner of the land. The streets, bedecked with swastika flags, echoed to the tramp of the storm troopers. There were mass rallies, torchlight parades, the din of loud-speakers in the squares. The billboards were plastered with flamboyant Nazi posters and at night bonfires lit up the hills. The electorate was in turn cajoled with promises of a German paradise, intimidated by the terror in the streets and frightened by the “revelations” about the Communist “revolution.”

Except for the arrests of the Communists and some of the Social Democratic deputies, it was all done quite legally, though accompanied by terror.
From March 23, 1933, on, Hitler was the dictator of the Reich, freed of any restraint by Parliament or, for all practical purposes, by the weary old President. “The street gangs,” in the words of Alan Bullock, “had seized control of the resources of a great modern State, the gutter had come to power.” But — as Hitler never ceased to boast — “legally,” by an overwhelming vote of Parliament. The Germans had no one to blame but themselves.

Apocalypse 8:10-11
And the third angel sounded the trumpet, and there fell from heaven a great star, burning like a torch, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers and upon the fountains of waters. The name of the star is called Wormwood. And the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many people died of the waters because they were made bitter.

rivers : peoples, nations
fountains of waters : children / schools, education
wormwood : a poisonous plant symbolizing corruption

Shirer:

No one who has not lived for years in a totalitarian land can possibly conceive how difficult it is to escape the dread consequences of a regime’s calculated and incessant propaganda. Often in a German home or office or sometimes in a casual conversation with a stranger in a restaurant, a beer hall, a cafe, I would meet with the most outlandish assertions from seemingly educated and intelligent persons. It was obvious that they were parroting some piece of nonsense they had heard on the radio or read in the newspapers. Sometimes one was tempted to say as much, but on such occasions one was met with such a stare of incredulity, such a shock of silence, as if one had blasphemed the Almighty, that one realized how useless it was even to try to make contact with a mind which had become warped and for whom the facts of life had become what Hitler and Goebbels, with their cynical disregard for truth, said they were.

Hitler’s contempt for “professors” and the intellectual academic life had peppered the pages of ‘Mein Kampf’, in which he had set down some of his ideas on education. “The whole education by a national state,” he had written, “must aim primarily not at the stuffing with mere knowledge but at building bodies which are physically healthy to the core.” But, even more important, he had stressed in his book the importance of winning over and then training the youth in the service “of a new national state” — a subject he returned to often after he became the German dictator. “When an opponent declares, ‘I will not come over to your side,’” he said in a speech on November 6, 1933, “I calmly say, ‘Your child belongs to us already…What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing else but this new community.’” And on May 1, 1937, he declared, “This new Reich will give its youth to no one, but will itself take youth and give to youth its own education and its own upbringing.” It was not an idle boast; that was precisely what was happening.

German schools, from first grade through the universities, were quickly Nazified. Textbooks were hastily rewritten, curricula were changed, Mein Kampf was made – in the words of Der Deutsche Erzieher, official organ of the educators – “our infallible pedagogical guiding star” and teachers who failed to see the new light were cast out.

“It was a scene of prostitution,” Professor Wilhelm Roepke later wrote, “that has stained the honorable history of German learning.” And as Professor Julius Ebbinghaus, looking back over the shambles in 1945, said, “The German universities failed, while there was still time, to oppose publicly with all their power the destruction of knowledge and of the democratic state. They failed to keep the beacon of freedom and right burning during the night of tyranny.”

………………………………………………………………………………………………………

No one — if he were not foolish — said or did anything that might be interpreted as “anti-Nazi” without first taking precautions that it was not being recorded by hidden S.D. microphones or overheard by an S.D. agent. Your son or your father or your wife or your cousin or your best friend or your boss or your secretary might be an informer for Heydrich’s organization; you never knew, and if you were wise nothing was ever taken for granted.

………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Not many Germans lost much sleep over the arrests of a few thousand pastors and priests or over the quarreling of the various Protestant sects. And even fewer paused to reflect that under the leadership of Rosenberg, Bormann and Himmler, who were backed by Hitler, the Nazi regime intended eventually to destroy Christianity in Germany, if it could, and substitute the old paganism of the early tribal Germanic gods and the new paganism of the Nazi extremists. As Bormann, one of the men closest to Hitler, said publicly in 1941, “National Socialism and Christianity are irreconcilable.”

What the Hitler government envisioned for Germany was clearly set out in a thirty-point program for the “National Reich Church” drawn up during the war by Rosenberg, an outspoken pagan, who among his other offices held that of “the Fuehrer’s Delegate for the Entire Intellectual and Philosophical Education and Instruction for the National Socialist Party.” A few of its thirty articles convey the essentials:

1. The National Reich Church of Germany categorically claims the exclusive right and the exclusive power to control all churches within the borders of the Reich: it declares these to be national churches of the German Reich.
5. The National Church is determined to exterminate irrevocably…the strange and foreign Christian faiths imported into Germany in the ill-omened year 800.
7. The National Church has no scribes, pastors, chaplains or priests, but National Reich orators are to speak in them.
13. The National Church demands immediate cessation of the publishing and dissemination of the Bible in Germany…
14. The National Church declares that to it, and therefore to the German nation, it has been decided that the Fuehrer’s ‘Mein Kampf’ is the greatest of all documents. It…not only contains the greatest but it embodies the purest and truest ethics for the present and future life of our nation.
18. The National Church will clear away from its altars all crucifixes, Bibles and pictures of saints.
19. On the altars there must be nothing but ‘Mein Kampf’ (to the German nation and therefore to God the most sacred book) and to the left of the altar a sword.
30. On the day of its foundation, the Christian Cross must be removed from all churches, cathedrals and chapels…and it must be superseded by the only unconquerable symbol, the swastika.

Baruch 2:1-2
And the Lord fulfilled the warning he had uttered against us: against our judges, who governed Israel, against our kings and princes, and against the men of Israel and Juda. He brought down upon us evils so great that there has not been done anywhere under heaven what has been done in Jerusalem, as was written in the law of Moses…

………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Shirer:

The so-called Nuremberg Laws of September 15, 1935, deprived the Jews of German citizenship, confining them to the status of “subjects.”

In the next few years some thirteen decrees supplementing the Nuremberg Laws would outlaw the Jew completely. But already by the summer of 1936, when the Germany which was host to the Olympic games was enchanting the visitors from the West, the Jews had been excluded either by law or by Nazi terror – the latter often preceded the former – from public and private employment to such an extent that at least one half of them were without means of livelihood.

Moreover, they were denied not only most of the amenities of life but often even the necessities. In many a town the Jew found it difficult if not impossible to purchase food. Over the doors of the grocery and butcher shops, the bakeries and the dairies, were signs, ‘Jews Not Admitted.” In many communities Jews could not procure milk even for their young children. Pharmacies would not sell them drugs or medicine. Hotels would not give them a night’s lodging. And always, wherever they went, were the taunting signs “Jews Strictly Forbidden in This Town” or “Jews Enter This Place at Their Own Risk.”

Such was the plight of the Jews at about the time the Festival of the Olympics was held in Germany. It was but the beginning of a road that would soon lead to their extinction by massacre.

Daniel 12:1-4
“At that time there shall arise Michael, the great prince, guardian of your people; it shall be a time unsurpassed in distress since nations began until that time. At that time your people shall escape, everyone who is found written in the book. Many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake; some shall live forever, others shall be an everlasting horror and disgrace. But the wise shall shine brightly like the splendor of the firmament, and those who lead the many to justice shall be like the stars forever. As for you, Daniel, keep secret the message and seal the book until the end time; many shall fall away and evil shall increase.”

Apocalypse 12:7-9
And there was a battle in heaven; Michael and his angels battled with the dragon, and the dragon fought and his angels. And they did not prevail, neither was their place found any more in heaven. And that great dragon was cast down, the ancient serpent, he who is called the devil and Satan, who leads astray the whole world; and he was cast down to the earth and with him his angels were cast down.

“Even though large tracts of Europe and many old and famous States have fallen or may fall into the grip of the Gestapo and all the odious apparatus of Nazi rule, we shall not flag or fail. We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in France, we shall fight in the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills, we shall never surrender, and even if, which I do not for a moment believe, this island or a large part of it were subjugated and starving, then our Empire beyond the seas, armed and guarded by the British Fleet, would carry on the struggle, until, in God’s good time, the New World, with all its power and might, steps forth to the rescue and liberation of the Old.”

“Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties, and so bear ourselves that, if the British Empire and its Commonwealth last for a thousand years, men will say, ‘This was their finest hour.’”

Apocalypse 19:11-16
And I saw heaven standing open; and behold, a white horse, and he who sat upon it is called Faithful and True, and with justice he judges and wages war. And his eyes are as a flame of fire, and on his head are many diadems; he has a name written which no man knows except himself. And he is clothed in a garment sprinkled with blood, and his name is called The Word of God. And the armies of Heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and pure, were following him on white horses. And from his mouth goes forth a sharp sword with which to smite the nations. And he will rule them with a rod of iron, and he treads the wine press of the
fierce wrath of God Almighty. And he has on his garment and on his thigh
a name written, “King of Kings and Lord of Lords.”

17-21
And I saw an angel standing in the sun, and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in midheaven, “Come, gather yourselves together to the great supper of God, that you may eat flesh of kings, and flesh of tribunes, and flesh of mighty men, and flesh of horses, and of those who sit upon them, and flesh of all men, free and bond, small and great.” And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth and their armies gathered together to wage war against him who was sitting upon the horse, and against his army. And the beast was seized, and with it the false prophet who did signs before it wherewith he deceived those who accepted the mark of the beast and who worshipped its image. These two were cast alive into the pool of fire that burns with brimstone. And the rest were killed with the sword of him who sits upon the horse, the sword that goes forth out of his mouth; and all the birds were filled with their flesh.

Abdia 1:12-17

Gaze not upon the day of your brother, the day of his disaster; exult not over the children of Juda on the day of their ruin; speak not haughtily on the day of distress! Enter not the gate of my people on the day of their calamity; gaze not, you at least, upon his misfortune on the day of his calamity; lay not hands upon his possessions on the day of his calamity. Stand not at the crossroads to slay his refugees; betray not his fugitives on the day of distress.

For near is the day of the Lord for all the nations! As you have done, so shall it be done to you, your deed shall come back upon your own head; as you have drunk upon my holy mountain, so shall all the nations drink continually. Yes, they shall drink and swallow, and shall become as though they had not been. But on Mount Sion there shall be a portion saved; the mountain shall be holy, and the house of Jacob shall take possession of those that dispossessed them.

The empires of the Central Powers and the Axis all ceased to exist, while the nation of Israel was restored.

The Balfour Declaration

Foreign Office November 2nd, 1917

Dear Lord Rothschild,

I have much pleasure in conveying to you, on behalf of His Majesty’s Government, the following declaration of sympathy with Jewish Zionist aspirations which has been submitted to, and approved by, the Cabinet.

“His Majesty’s Government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country.”

I should be grateful if you would bring this declaration to the knowledge of the Zionist Federation.

Yours sincerely, Arthur James Balfour

1 Thessalonians 4:16-18
For the Lord himself with cry of command, with voice of archangel, and with trumpet of God will descend from heaven; and the dead in Christ will rise up first. Then we who live, who survive, shall be caught up together with them in clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall ever be with the Lord. Wherefore, comfort one another with these words.

Apocalypse 19:1-9

After these things I heard as it were a loud voice of a great crowd in heaven, saying, “Alleluia! salvation and glory and power belong to our God. For true and just are his judgments, who has judged the great harlot who corrupted the earth with her fornication, and has avenged the blood of his servants at her hands.” And again they have said, “Alleluia! And the smoke of her goes up forever and ever!” And the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshipped God who sits on the throne, and they said, “Amen! Alleluia!” And a voice came forth from the throne, saying, “Praise our God, all you his servants, and you who fear him, the small and the great!”

And I heard as it were a voice of a great crowd, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunders, saying, “Alleluia! for the Lord, our God almighty, now reigns! Let us be glad and rejoice, and give glory to Him; for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and his spouse has prepared herself. And she has been permitted to clothe herself in fine linen, shining, bright. For the fine linen is the just deeds of the saints.” And he said to me, “Write: Blessed are they who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb.” And he said to me,
“These are true words of God.”

Joel 3
Then afterward I will pour out my Spirit upon all mankind. Your sons and daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions; even upon the servants and the handmaids, in those days, I will pour out my Spirit. And I will work wonders in the heavens and on the earth, blood, fire, and columns of smoke; the sun will be turned to darkness, and the moon to blood, at the coming of the Day of the Lord, the great and terrible day. Then everyone shall be rescued who calls on the name of the Lord; for on Mount Sion there shall be a remnant, as the Lord has said, and in Jerusalem survivors whom the Lord shall call.

Psalm 47
All you peoples, clap your hands, shout to God with cries of gladness, for the Lord, the Most High, the awesome, is the great king over all the earth. He brings peoples under us; nations under our feet. He chooses for us our inheritance, the glory of Jacob, whom he loves. God mounts his throne amid shouts of joy; the Lord, amid trumpet blasts. Sing praise to God, sing praise; sing praise to our king, sing praise. For king of all the earth is God; sing hymns of praise. God reigns over the nations, God sits upon his holy throne. The princes of the peoples are gathered together with the people of the God of Abraham. For God’s are the guardians of the earth; he is supreme.

Psalm 48
Great is the Lord and wholly to be praised in the city of our God. His holy mountain, fairest of heights, is the joy of all the earth; Mount Sion, “the recessess of the North,” is the city of the great King. God is with her castles; renowned is he as a stronghold. For lo! the kings assemble, they come on together; they also see, and at once are stunned, terrified, routed; quaking seizes them there; anguish, like a woman’s in labor, as though a wind from the east were shattering ships of Tharsis. As we had heard, so we have seen in the city of the Lord of hosts, in the city of our God; God makes it firm forever. O God, we ponder your kindness within your temple. As your name, O God, so also your praise reaches to the ends of the earth. Of justice your right hand is full; let Mount Sion be glad, let the cities of Juda rejoice, because of your judgments. Go about Sion, make the round; count her towers. Consider her ramparts, examine her castles, that you may tell a future generation that such is God, our God forever and ever; he will guide us.

Apocalypse 20:1-6

And I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key of the abyss and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, the ancient serpent, who is the devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years. And he cast him into the abyss, and closed and sealed it over him, that he should deceive the nations no more, until the thousand years should be finished. And after that he must be let loose for a little while.

And I saw thrones, and men sat upon them and judgment was given to them. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of the witness to Jesus and because of the word of God, and who did not worship the beast or his image, and did not accept his mark upon their foreheads or upon their hands. And they came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years. The rest of the dead did not come to life til the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection! Over these the second death has no power; but they will be priests of God and Christ,
and will reign with him a thousand years.

Isaiah 14:1-23

When the Lord has pity on Jacob and again chooses Israel and settles them on their own soil, the aliens will join them and be counted with the house of Jacob. The house of Israel will take them and bring them along to its place, and possess them as male and female slaves on the Lord’s soil, making captives of its captors and ruling over its oppressors. On the day the Lord relieves you of sorrow and unrest and the hard service in which you have been enslaved, you will take up this taunt-song against the king of Babylon:

How the oppressor has reached his end! how the turmoil is stilled! The Lord has broken the rod of the wicked, the staff of the tyrants that struck the peoples in wrath relentless blows; that beat down the nations in anger, with oppression unchecked.

The whole earth rests peacefully, song breaks forth; the very cypresses rejoice over you, and the cedars of Lebanon: “Now that you are laid to rest, there will be none to cut us down.”

The nether world below is all astir preparing for your coming; it awakens the shades to greet you, all the leaders of the earth; it has the kings of all nations rise from their thrones. All of them speak out and say to you, “You too have become weak like us, you are the same as we. Down to the nether world your pomp is brought, the music of your harps. The couch beneath you is the maggot, your covering, the worm.”

How have you fallen from the heavens, O morning star, son of the dawn! How are you cut down to the ground, you who mowed down nations! You said in your heart: “I will scale the heavens; above the stars of God I will set up my throne;
I will take my seat on the Mount of Assembly, in the recesses of the North. I will ascend above the tops of the clouds; I will be like the Most High!”

Yet down to the nether world you go to the recesses of the pit! When they see you they will stare, pondering over you: “Is this the man who made the earth tremble, and kingdoms quake? Who made the world a desert, razed its cities, and gave his captives no release? All the kings of the nations lie in glory, each in his own tomb; but you are cast forth without burial, loathsome and corrupt, clothed as those slain at sword-point, a trampled corpse. Going down to the pavement of the pit, you will never be one with them in the grave. For you have ruined your land, you have slain your people.”

He will not be named forever, that scion of an evil race! Make ready to slaughter his sons for the guilt of their fathers; lest they rise and possess the earth, and fill the breadth of the world with tyrants.

I will rise up against them, says the Lord of hosts, and cut off from Babylon name and remnant, progeny and offspring, says the Lord. I will make it a haunt of hoot owls and a marshland; I will sweep it with the broom of destruction, says the Lord of hosts.

Deuteronomy 32:39-43
“Learn then that I, I alone, am God, and there is no god besides me. It is I who bring both death and life, I who inflict wounds and heal them, and from my hand there is no rescue. To the heavens I raise my hand and swear: As surely as I live forever, I will sharpen my flashing sword, and my hand shall lay hold of my quiver. With vengeance I will repay my foes and requite those who hate me.
I will make my arrows drunk with blood, and my sword shall gorge itself with flesh – with the blood of the slain and captured, flesh from the heads of the enemy leaders.” Exult with him, you heavens, glorify him, all you angels of God; for he avenges the blood of his servants and purges his people’s land.

Amos 9:15
“I will plant Israel in their own land, never again to be uprooted from the land
I have given them,” says the Lord your God.
.

Baruch 2:34-35
I will bring them back to the land which with my oath I promised to their fathers, to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; and they shall rule it. I will make them increase, they shall not then diminish. And I will establish for them, as an eternal covenant, that I will be their God, and they shall be my people;
and I will not again remove my people Israel from the land I gave them.
.

Ezekiel 34:28
They will no longer be plundered by the nations, nor wild animals devour them. They will live in safety, and no one will make them afraid.
.

Ezekiel 37:25
They will live in the land I gave to my servant Jacob, the land where your fathers lived. They and their children and their children’s children will live there forever, and David my servant will be their prince forever.

Psalm 113
Praise, you servants of the Lord, praise the name of the Lord. Blessed be the name of the Lord both now and forever. From the rising to the setting of the sun is the name of the Lord to be praised. High above all nations is the Lord; above the heavens is His glory. Who is like the Lord, our God, who is enthroned on high and looks upon the heavens and the earth below? He raises up the lowly from the dust; from the dunghill he lifts up the poor to seat them with princes, with the princes of his own people. He establishes in her home the barren wife as the joyful mother of children.
