General James Green - July 22, 2011
“Thus saith the LORD unto this people, Thus have they loved to wander, they have not refrained their feet, therefore the LORD doth not accept them; he will now remember their iniquity, and visit their sins. Then said the LORD unto me, Pray not for this people for their good. When they fast, I will not hear their cry; and when they offer burnt offering and an oblation, I will not accept them: but I will consume them by the sword, and by the famine, and by the pestilence. Then said I, Ah, Lord GOD! behold, the prophets say unto them, Ye shall not see the sword, neither shall ye have famine; but I will give you assured peace in this place. Then the LORD said unto me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name: I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spake unto them: they prophesy unto you a false vision and divination, and a thing of nought, and the deceit of their heart. Therefore thus saith the LORD concerning the prophets that prophesy in my name, and I sent them not, yet they say, Sword and famine shall not be in this land; By sword and famine shall those prophets be consumed. And the people to whom they prophesy shall be cast out in the streets of Jerusalem because of the famine and the sword; and they shall have none to bury them, their wives, nor their sons, nor their daughters: for I will pour their wickedness upon them” (Jer 14:10-16, KJV).
WHEN JEREMIAH 14 was penned, Palestine was under a drought (vv. 1-6). Jeremiah the prophet lets us know how bad things were (vv. 1-9). He pleads with Yahweh, “leave us not” (v. 9). Starting in verse 10, we see Yahweh’s (God’s) answer concerns the people and Jeremiah’s role, not the land (vv. 11-12).
The SIN Problem
GOD, FIRST off, was telling the prophet that Israel “loved to wander, they have not refrained their feet” (v. 10). Is not this, my dear readers, the Americans’ problem—“they love to wander, they have not refrained their feet”? Have not the people of America wandered FAR from God, His Word, His Will, His Way? Have not the “Christians” of this nation wandered AWAY, FAR AWAY from Biblical teachings? Have not the church people forsaken God/Jesus/the Holy Spirit for many other gods and goddesses? YES!
WHY DO Americans wonder at all the calamities befalling this nation? Are these judgments not because of their CONTINUAL sinfulness? Even though I hear of “Christian” churches praying for relief, God will not hear nor accept them, just as He would not sinning Israel—“Therefore the LORD doth not accept them; He will now remember their iniquity, and visit their sins” (v. 10).
No one can rightly say that God is not visiting America at this time. All you sinning church people, you want God to visit you, to have a “move of the Spirit,” a “revival”? Well, this is one move of His Spirit you will not like—a JUDGMENT MOVE!...He is visiting this sinful nation. You’ve been praying for a “visitation”? Well, it is here, and you will now witness, not His “love,” but His FURY (although some will be under His love because of their repentant hearts).
BEWARE!—WHEN God tells us “pray not for this people for their good” (v. 11). Why? Because such a people are ripe for PUNISHMENT.
We’ve been taught in Churchianity that we’re to always “love” and “have pity” on the sinner, the rebel, the backslider, the apostate; but God may want us to pray against them. You see, it takes punishment to get some people saved, to get the rebellious submitted and humbled. We’re in such a time folks. WATCH HOW YOU PRAY: DON’T PRAY FOR “BLESSING” WHEN GOD IS CURSING. FOLLOW THE SPIRIT.
We can intercede for the lost, the backslider, but let God do what He needs to do in order to redeem the lost, the rebel, the fallen. Prohibition is often the perfect medicine for healing, yet even in this, as I’ve already written, some are beyond healing, and therefore God must go beyond prohibition: DESTRUCTION is in order.
VERSE 11 has close parallels with 7:16 and 11:14 — “Therefore pray not thou for this people, neither lift up cry nor prayer for them, neither make intercession to me: for I will not hear thee” (7:16). “Therefore pray not thou for this people, neither lift up a cry or prayer for them: for I will not hear them in the time that they cry unto me for their trouble” (11:14).
Even in our intercession for the lost, the rebel, etc., it can be that of deprecation: “God, bring upon this people what is necessary to humble them, save them.” There is a time to pray for the good (blessing) of the people, and there is a time to pray (or at least agree with what God is doing) for ill favor. I realize in this sickly and frightened generation, covered in “political correctness” and religious hypocrisy, this sounds “unloving”—yet we read in Hebrews 12:6-11 about why God brings chastisements: for our own profit (v. 10), so that we can yield the peaceable fruit of righteousness (v. 11).
THESE MAJOR SINS are what cause God’s WRATH to be kindled. Israel wandered away from worshiping their God and went a whoring after other gods. (HELLO, AMERICA!) Jeremiah 7 tells us this clearly. Verse 9 mentions stealing, murder, adultery, false swearing and idol worship. Verse 18 mentions worship given to the “queen of heaven” (see also 44:19—sounds like the Roman Catholics!).
Is not this nation GUILTY of the same sins?—theft, murder (ABORTION is over 50 MILLION DEAD BABIES and counting!!), adultery (now we have the gross sin of HOMOSEXUALITY that is rampant in the land!), false swearing [even “Christians” do this by swearing an oath (at salvation) and yet REFUSE to live the TRUE Christian life laid down clearly in the Bible!]. Have not Americans praised/worshiped this nation, just as Israel burned incense unto Baal and walked after other gods (today its: sports, entertainments, recreations, materialism, etc., ETC.!)? Have not the “Christians” done the same? Their churches have become houses of thieves (Jer 7:11), they have become houses of prostitutes (selling themselves to other lovers for gain!), houses of ABOMINATIONS of every sort....and we’re still to believe that God is PLEASED with us? GET SERIOUS, my lost friend, sinner, rebel, backslider, apostate, REPROBATE!!
Curses, Not Blessings
THIS IS what we now see. Jeremiah 11:14 repeats 7:16 — “Therefore pray not thou for this people, neither lift up a cry or prayer for them...” Verse 8 tells us that, “They obeyed not, nor inclined their ear, BUT WALKED EVERY ONE IN THE IMAGINATION OF THEIR EVIL HEART...” They wandered far from God in their hearts. So it is even now.
If one truly appraises all that I write, one will see that SIN BRINGS JUDGMENT. Rebels eventually will be punished, despite all the “I didn’t do,” “I didn’t know” stuff. The LORD says in 11:9 that “A conspiracy [KJV] is found among the men of Judah, and among the inhabitants of Jerusalem.” The RSV uses the word “revolt,” which I believe fits better. Conspiracy commonly suggests political action, whereas revolt suggests a revolution against the commands of God.
THEY HAD them then, we have them today (see vv. 13-18; Jer. 14). Right now there are those false prophets who decry what we write—they say that God is not judging America. I say He is! We have these fake prophets out there telling America that “All is well!” HA! “All is HELL!!”...and anyone with half a brain can see this. Jeremiah had conflict with these “peace and safety” prophets, as we do (read 6:13-14; 8:10-11; 23:9-33). These false prophets/teachers/preachers, who are more interested in the approval of men than God, prophesy pathetically!
The temple prophets, who sided with the spiritual leaders of the people, actually were betraying the people, for God was bringing judgment and they covered up this fact with “All is well!” stuff. One can see the inevitable collision between Jeremiah and the temple prophets (see 4:10; 5:13, 31; 6:13-14; 8:10b-11; et al.). These false prophets also spoke in the name of YAHWEH, but God said they “prophesy lies in my name: I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spake unto them: they prophesy unto you a false vision and divination, and a thing of nought, and the deceit of their heart” (14:14).
OF THE DEVIL!
I’VE SAID IT FOR YEARS and I’ll say it again: THERE ARE MANY “RELIGIOUS” (MALE AND FEMALE) PREACHERS, TEACHERS, PROPHETS, ETC. OUT THERE THAT ARE OF THE DEVIL! Their phoney words are based upon a lying vision, itself rooted in magical practice (“worthless divination”—RSV). The practice of divination (Heb. qesem) was and is contemptible to God. Diviners were not always prophets, but they were always in league with the false prophets and agreed with their prophecies of peace in opposition to Jeremiah (or any other true prophet of God).
“We Want To Hear Good Things!”
WE HEAR THIS all the time. Sorry! Bad things are in order, for you reap what you’ve sown. You’ve sown bad things, don’t expect God to bless you with good things. Yet this is the very mindset (“We want good things!”) of today’s backslid and Emergent Church. Wait and see what comes—good or bad. This will settle it for you.
You’ve had your false teachers/preachers/prophets for years now telling you “It’s okay to eat of the forbidden, walk in your own ways, do your own thing—just come to church, pay your tithes and offerings, support the ministers and all will go well with you!” HA! All will be HELL with you!! God will vindicate Himself upon this wayward and rebellious generation—both the religious and non-religious. Payday is today.
Hawking Their Wares
NOW, THERE ARE THOSE who do see and understand what God is doing—they call themselves “watchmen”—but they merely take advantage of the times and hawk their latest “spook” book, their latest CD or DVD (for a handsome price, of course!). Usually, Israel is the center of their interest (which is where they go WRONG!). I got two items in the mail yesterday along these lines. There is no doubt that they have a handle on current events, but Israel is mistakenly the main attraction.
One very nice newsletter (April-May-June 2011) had as its main subject, “The New Middle East—Democratic or Demonic?”, giving us the “latest” insight on the Middle East “crisis.” What the editor/founder wrote, I feel, was right [—about what “politically correct” propagandists assure Americans, that jihadists do not reflect “true,” “peaceful” Islam; for they’re not only wrong in saying this about jihadists, they’re dangerous, because they lull America and the West into letting their guard down against what is actually their mortal enemy!—), but the editor misses the whole picture entirely. Militant Islam IS a threat to the whole world, especially to America (write for the many booklets we have on Islam).
But God is angry with America, and the rest of the world, for gross sins, not just because America isn’t SUPPORTING Israel the way this editor thinks she should. AMERICA’S WOES AREN’T BECAUSE OF THE LACK OF SUPPORT FOR THAT TINY, REBELLIOUS, CHRIST-HATING, CHRISTIAN-HATING ISRAEL, BUT FOR HER WANDERING FAR FROM THE STANDARDS AND LAWS OF GOD.
Backing up a second: Islam arising here in the U.S. is in itself a CURSE—since America won’t serve the God of peace and mercy, God MAY allow (even exalt) Islam over this nation, forcing Sharia law down our throats—and your current president (Obama) is very capable of doing this without any regrets!!
“WATCHING WORLD events through the lens of proper end-time theology connects a lot of dots...” writes this editor—and Israel is at the CENTER of ALL end-time prophecy/theology—according to Israel watchers.
Friends, this is wrong. God has NO FAVORITES today; THE CHURCH/EKKLESIA OF JESUS CHRIST HAS REPLACED ANCIENT (AND MODERN) ISRAEL. This is Bible. I’m not anti-Jew, I’m telling you that nowhere does the Bible tell us that Israel will be at center-stage in the end-time; they make all this up. People like Rev. John Hagee, Dr. Tim LaHaye, Dr. Tomas Ice, author Hal Lindsay, etc.—they all have the “lets worship Israel” disease. Of course, all these “Israel first” Christians see us as deceived, racists, bigots, etc., for challenging their “NO Replacement Theology!” This editor I’ve been mentioning writes and accuses certain Bible scholars of having such theology and their theology being “skewed.” (Replacement Theology teaches that the Blood-bought Ekklesia of Jesus Christ has replaced Israel.) He says Replacement Theology leads to “‘Christian Palestinianism’ and many other non-Biblical conclusions.” Get serious here. Just because we see the current nation of Israel the way she is—anti-Christ, anti-Christian, anti-Jesus, anti-Mary (we don’t mean in the sense of worshipping her like the Roman Catholics do), and, really, anti-world!—does not mean our theology is “skewed.” I have dozens of teachings on this debate already—free.
And these Israel worshipers would not be true to Israel and to themselves unless they HURL ANTI-SEMITISM at us. Thank you, but it won’t change the Biblical FACT that THE TRUE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST HAS REPLACED RACIAL ISRAEL.
And I don’t mind adding to what I just said: The (supposed) RAPTURE is also center-stage of all this end-time fluff. I challenge anyone to prove such a thing as a PRE-TRIBULATION RAPTURE in the Bible. Their arguments supporting such an event can be disproved by Scripture quite easily (write for our “rapture” teachings—free).
IN SUMMARY OF THIS certain newsletter, we read: “The greatest SIGN people need to watch is ISRAEL.” This is pure NATION WORSHIP—the very thing God hates. NATION WORSHIP = IDOLATRY. Frankly, I REFUSE TO WORSHIP ISRAEL, AMERICA, OR ANY NATION UPON THE EARTH; WE’RE TO WORSHIP GOD ONLY! ISRAEL, AS GOD’S CHOSEN PEOPLE, ENDED IN 70 A.D. (oh how they hate this!).
I admire these folks for their persistence in promoting what they believe in, but it is not Biblical by any means. And, being against their false teachings (against the false idea that God established Israel in 1948) does not make me an Israel-hater; in fact, I TELL THE LOST JEWS THEY NEED TO ACCEPT THEIR MESSIAH, IN ORDER TO BE ADDED TO THE NEW ISRAEL, which is “Biblically Correct.” Hagee won’t even tell them this. He’d rather let them die and go to HELL. This man is sealing them in their own rebellion and damnation.
THIS NEWSLETTER is put together by another author who is pro-Israel. He is quite a prolific world traveler, lecturer, etc....who takes groups to Israel just about every time one turns around. He offers many CDs, DVDs, books, etc. on world events, especially on the Middle East. I can agree with all they say concerning the evils of Islam, Communism, and other false religions, but, again, he has a very big blind spot concerning the “end-times”—the usual “rapture,” “Great Tribulation,” “anti-Christ appearing,” “Israel attacked,” “Israel’s victory” scenario, and so on. My first 5 years as a Christian I was taught (BRAIN-WASHED!) on all this stuff, too.
This author offers in his May 2011 newsletter, “ISRAEL A Nation Is Born, A 5 Part Documentary Series on DVD.” “May 14th, 1948,” he writes, “in our lifetime an amazing miracle foretold thousands of years ago....” This set is presented by former Israeli Foreign Minister A.E.; it tells the story of the creation of the state of Israel, blah blah blah.
Hey, GOD DID NOT ESTABLISH ISRAEL IN 1948; THE SECULAR ZIONIST MOVEMENT DID!!! Even the orthodox religious Jews deny Israel’s establishment. Better check all this out, dear readers.
Then we turn the pages and see another large ad advertising Israel’s Last Refuge, The Next Holocaust, by the same author—on DVD, for $19.95. On the next page we see a large ad: Israel 2011, The Issachar Study Tour (for Nov. 2011). Then on the back of this colorful newsletter we find an ad, In The Twinkling Of An Eye! — THE RAPTURE, by the same author, in DVD format. His main article is, of course, the history of Israel’s preservation. HA! Israel wouldn’t last a week if America wasn’t there—as a Big Brother—with $$ aid and military aid. All the Scriptures he uses to “prove” his theology are Scriptures that now speak of past days,—things ALREADY FULFILLED—not future days.
In finishing up his article mentioned above, this author tells us, “We continue to watch world events as they relate to the FUTURE of Israel, specifically the forthcoming ‘Time of Jacob’s Trouble,’ the climax of the current ‘struggle for Jerusalem.’” This is all built upon a false interpretation of Scripture, especially Daniel 9. Better re-study all those “proof-texts” if you are “caught up” (“RAPTURED”!) in all this Israel, end-time BALONEY.
Isaiah 11:11-12, on the re-gathering the second time of Israel, is misapplied so terribly. Write to us for our FREE “Ruptured Rapture” series of materials to gain some clarity on this issue of Israel and the so-called “Rapture,” particularly.
So, the Big Bad Sin, according to all these “Watch Israel” people, IS NOT SUPPORTING THEM OR ISRAEL. I’ve got news for you: America’s BIG BAD SIN is not this, but ABORTION—50-PLUS MILLION MURDERED PRE-BORN—and the promotion, acceptance and practice of HOMOSEXUALITY AND ALL RELATED SINS COMMITTED BY GAYS, LESBIANS, BISEXUALS, TRANSGENDERS AND QUEERS (GLBTQs). Then we have both religious and political sins that mount up to heaven—these are what are causing America’s woes, not the lack of support for an anti-Christ, anti-Christian, anti-N.T. Church ROGUE NATION called Israel. GET SERIOUS!! GIVING SO MUCH AID to a nation that literally HATES CHRIST, CHRISTIANS / THE TRUE CHURCH is SIN itself: IT IS SHEER ADULTERY AND IDOLATRY!! It is no different from what Jeremiah wrote about—Israel worshiping pagan nations’ idols.
IF GOD broke His covenant with ancient Israel for their sins (see Deut 28-32), and they become God’s enemies (Acts 7 and Romans 11:28), why do we think we will get by with the same sins and go unpunished? All this “God won’t punish us!” BULL is from the PIT! GOD CONDEMNED THE COVENANT-BREAKING JEWS, HE CONDEMNS THE SAME SINS IN US TODAY.
I see no “blessing” upon the state of Israel today, do you? I see no peace with God, do you? In fact, even the orthodox Jews want Christians OUT of Israel!—obviously, this is a SIGN that the nation is NOT walking with God.
Furthermore, where is Israel’s priesthood? Where are the animal sacrifices? And where’s their Temple? their king? Do all these MISSING ENTITIES prove Israel to be a nation?? NO! Israel today is made up by a bunch of secular Zionists who love $$$ and POWER, NOT GOD, along with a bunch of orthodox Jews who believe in the Jewish Talmud which states that Jesus—the Christ and THEIR Messiah—is a “BASTARD,” a “DEMON-POSSESSED magician” and that the virgin Mary is a “PANTERA / WHORE.” Many Jews living in that nation also believe in Zionism, Marxism, Kabbalism and atheism...and we’re told (even SCOLDED) to honor/give $$ to and bless them?? IF GOD ISN’T IN ALL THIS, I’M NOT!—any more than I’m for Islam, whose followers also hate Christianity and murder Christians at the drop of the rag on their heads.
Are You Ready?
THE BIG QUESTION is not “Are you ready for the rapture?” but “ARE YOU READY FOR GOD’S JUDGMENTS?” The truth: Americans are NOT READY for either!
Instead of worrying about whether one accepts, likes, approves, or hates Israel, one should be concerned with the HUGE SIN PROBLEM here in America. WE SHOULD BE MORE CONCERNED IF WE HAVE OFFENDED OUR GOD RATHER THAN ISRAEL OR THE HOMOSEXUALS OR THE WICKED POLITICIANS AND PREACHERS, OR WHOMEVER.
When America has over 50 million aborted babies on their hands, and San Francisco alone has over 25,000 homo men diagnosed with HIV/AIDS (homo behavior among men accounts for 85-89% of these cases in that vile city), and God only knows how many have already had it and were not reported to have died of that disease (you know, it’s a PC thing), and there are dozens and dozens of “gay” (happy?) bath houses, bars and sex clubs, and we have such vile street events like their annual Folsom Street Fair, attended by thousands of NUDE, cruising homo males, I THINK AMERICA NEEDS TO GET ITS RED-WHITE-BLUE HEAD SCREWED ON RIGHT. And let me add this to their criminal behavior: rectal gonorrhea and syphilis are taking their victims to early graves...and the rapid immersion (like “baptism”) into the vile homo/bisexual/cross-dressing community is open day and night for the youth (ages 24 and under).
One critic was ON TARGET when they said (about the above), “How far under (age)? That’s pretty undefined, because this is, after all, about choices and fluidity and such, with few or no parents notified or involved.” When we used to live in California, we saw all this in its beginning stages. We used to go to San Francisco to witness for the Lord Jesus, and we also supplied anti-homo tracts for others who would brave the filth for lost souls.
No ageism—sexism—homo-normativity—questioningism (of one’s God-given gender)—promiscuityism—etc., etc.—it’s all out there, folks...IN YOUR FACE! It’s what you wanted.
FRIENDS, THESE RISING SINS POINT TO AMERICA’S WANDERING FAR FROM GOD: REPENT OR PERISH, AMERICA!
