    In God We Trust

    Unfortunately this motto of the forefathers has been largely forgotten today.



    Isaiah 9:8-12 The Lord has sent forth His Word against Jacob and it will fall upon Israel. All the people of Ephraim 1 and those in Samaria 2 will know of it, though in their pride and arrogance they say: The bricks have fallen, but we will rebuild in stone and the sycamores are cut down , but we will grow cedars in their place.

    The Lord had roused their enemies 3 against them and they have swallowed Israel completely. For all this, His anger has not abated, His hand still threatens.

    1/ Ephraim – The leader of the Northern ten tribes; the House of Israel, swallowed and lost to history, now scattered among the nations, but predominantly the Western peoples.

    2/ Samaria – The ancient capital city of the House of Israel in the holy Land.

    3/ Assyria – They conquered and exiled Israel in 722-717 BC. Isaiah 10:5-6

    So this prophecy has been fulfilled. To say that Isaiah 9:10 applies to the U.S.A. after 9/11, is pretentious and is false teaching.



    Isaiah 9:13-17 Yet the people did not come back to Him who struck them, nor seek guidance from their Maker. So therefore, on one Day,4 the Lord will cut off head and tail, palm frond and reed. The head is the elders and leaders, the tail is the false teachers and prophets. Those who guide this people have led them astray and those who follow their wrong leadings are lost to the truth. That is why the Lord shows no mercy to that nation of godless evildoers, every one of them speaking impurity. So in His anger He will smite them, His hand will chastise them. Jeremiah 8:14-17

    4/ The great Day of the Lord’s vengeance and wrath, a single day of worldwide disaster.

    This prophecy refers to our time, atheism and apostasy are rife, people follow false teachers.

    Ezekiel 22:26-29, Jeremiah 8:7-9, 2 Timothy 4:3-4



    Isaiah 9:18-21 Wicked people will burn in a fire 5, a fire as hot as one fed with thorn bushes, they will be engulfed in a pall of smoke. The land will be burnt and devastated 6 by the wrath of God Almighty and the people are as fuel for the fire. Isaiah 6:11-12

    Now, people are fed that which does not satisfy, their children and kinsmen are not respected or honoured. So the Lord’s anger will fall upon them, His hand will exact punishment. Deuteronomy 7:10, Proverbs 16:4-5, Romans 1:18, Zephaniah 1:14-18



    5/ The next prophesied event is a terrible judgement by fire, instigated by the Lord, but He will not be seen at that time. Psalms 18:11 We are informed by Isaiah 30:26 exactly what it is that the Lord will use to carry out this worldwide punishment, it will be a Coronal Mass Ejection of unprecedented magnitude. Malachi 4:1, Isaiah 66:15-16, Zeph. 3:8

    6/ The holy Land, that is: all of that area given to Abraham, will be the most affected. Ezekiel 20:46-48, Ezekiel 30:1-5, Jer. 4:7, Jer. 11:15-16, Jer. 22:6-7, Zephaniah 1:18, Hosea 4:3. It will be completely cleared and cleansed, but then the Lord promises regeneration for the Land, Ezekiel 36:8, Isaiah 30:23-24, Jeremiah 33:6-9. Faithful Christian Israelites will go and live there in peace and security. Ezekiel 34:11-31, Isaiah 35:1-10, Romans 9:26


    Now, in the very near future, the Lord who ‘has restrained Himself so long’ - Isaiah 42:14, will take action against His enemies. We, His servants, must heed Isaiah 30:15In calm detachment lies your safety, your strength in quiet trust. Psalms 37:3-13, John 14:1

    "In God We Trust" is the official motto of the United States of America and of the U.S. state of Florida. It was adopted as the nation's motto in 1956

    So, do the people of the USA and Florida all actually trust in God? No, those words are just decorations on their emblems.

    But we Christians, the called out ones of God, do; or should do, put our trust in the protection and saving power of the Lord, on His forthcoming terrible Day of wrath.
    Here is how your favorite hymn, the Battle Hymn of the Republic, plays out:
    Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord:

    Ezekiel 43:1-9 I went to the East gate and there I saw the glory of the Lord coming with the sound of a mighty torrent. The earth shone with His glory, it came in and filled the Temple, the place of His throne where He will dwell among the Israelites forever. Neither they nor their rulers will defy the Lord again by their idolatry and sins.

    Ezekiel 43:10-11 Ezekiel, tell them about the Temple and let them be ashamed for their sins. If they repent and are remorseful for what they have done, then describe to them the new Temple, to be built on the Holy mountain. Make detailed plans for them to follow and carry out, with all the instructions for its operation.

    Ezekiel 46:1-3The East gate is to be kept closed during the six days of the working week, to be opened only on Sabbaths and at the new moon. When the ruler, [The prince in the NIV & KJV] comes in, he is to stand by the East gatepost, while the priests sacrifice his offerings. He is to bow down in worship and then to leave. The people must also bow in worship at that gate. Malachi 1:5

    Ezekiel, the prophet, lived during the period between the exile of the Northern tribes and the Jewish captivity. His prophecies about the Land and the Temple have not yet happened, as when the Jewish remnant returned under Nehemiah, that Temple did not receive the Shekinah Glory. All of Ezekiel chapters 40 – 48, await fulfilment and note that this must be before the Return of Jesus, as the ‘ruler’ of all the Israelites makes sacrifices and worships the Lord at the New Temple. Jeremiah 30:21, Zechariah 14:21


    He is tramping out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored Isaiah 63:1-6

    Revelation 14:18-20 From the altar came the angel who has authority over fire and he called out to the angel with the sharp sickle: “Gather the harvest, the grape clusters are ripe.” They were gathered and thrown into the great winepress of God’s wrath. Blood flowed from the press for 200 miles. Amos 5:17, Jer. 6:9


    He has loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword

    Ezekiel 30:1-8 Prophesy! The Lord says: Cry out, for the terrible Day is near, the Day of the Lord’s vengeance and wrath, His Day of Reckoning upon the nations. A sword will come upon Egypt and there will be disaster in all of the Arab lands. Those who support Egypt will fall and all who live along the Nile will die. When I set Egypt on fire, the land will become totally desolate and ruined. They will all know that I am the Lord, on that Day. Ref: REB. Some verses abridged.

    The Lord’s Day of reckoning – a Day of fire, His terrible Day of vengeance and wrath, will be an unexpected and shocking event, that will cause destruction throughout the Middle East. It will be the fulfilment of Psalms 83 and Micah 4:11-12. Other prophesies make it clear that the whole world will be affected and that it will take the form of a Coronal Mass Ejection sunstrike. A really big CME will have all the effects described, but it quickly passes, leaving the Holy Land ready for His Christian people to gather and settle there. The rest of the world’s nations will form a One world Government.

    His Truth is marching on!

    Those who trust in the Lord will rejoice in the holy Land:

    Isaiah 41:8-20 But you, Israel My servant – Jacob whom I have chosen, the descendants of My friend Abraham. I have summoned you from the ends of the earth and called you My servants. Have no fear, for I am with you – I am your God. I shall strengthen you with My victorious right hand.
    Now, all who defy you will be humiliated. They will be as nothing and will perish. Your enemies will no longer be found.

    For I, the Lord your God will help you. Have no fear Jacob, you worm, Israel you maggot, your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel. See; I shall make of you a sharp threshing sledge. You will thresh and winnow the land and the wind will carry away all that pollutes the holy Land. Then you will rejoice in the Lord.
    The poor and needy look for water and find none. The Lord will not forsake them, He will open up springs in the hills and pools in the desert. All kinds of trees will flourish in the Land, so that everyone may see and understand that the Lord Himself has created this.

    Isaiah 40:27-31 Jacob, why do you complain? You Israel, why do you say: my cause goes unheeded by my God? Do you not know, have you not heard – the Lord does not grow weary or faint and His understanding cannot be fathomed.
    The Lord gives strength to the weary and those who trust in Him will soar as on eagles wings, they will run and not feel faint, march on and not be tired. Ref. REB some verses abridged.

    ‘Israel My servant, the descendants of Jacob, whom I have chosen. I have summoned My servants from the ends of the earth; out of every nation.’ The Lord’s righteous people, now every faithful Christian, called out of the nations after the Lord’s Day of vengeance. They will be helped and strengthened by their God. As we know from other prophesies and the New Testament, the Lord’s servants also include people of every race, tribe, language and nation. We Christians are His people by faith.

    ‘Any who oppose them will be destroyed, by God’s victorious Right Hand’. The Lord Jesus will instigate this judgement/punishment of the nations. Psalms 110:5-6, Luke 3:16-17, Ezekiel 30:1-5, Micah 7:10

    ‘Jacob you worm, Israel you maggot’ The Lord has a sense of humour! The people of all the 12 tribes are unworthy, but God will fulfil His promises to the Patriarchs through their descendants who believe in God by faith. Galatians 3:26-29

    ‘The storm wind sent by the Lord, will remove all that pollutes the holy Land’, This refers to the Day of the Lord’s wrath, a terrible worldwide devastation by fire, earthquakes, storms and tsunamis. Isaiah 30:25-28, Malachi 4:1, 2 Peter 3:7

    ‘The Lord will provide water and the Land will flourish, all will acknowledge the Lords hand in this’. Once again it will be all habitable and fertile. Ezekiel 25:5-7, Ezekiel 36:8, Isaiah 25:9, Amos 9:13, Isaiah 51:3, Isaiah 49:19

    The poor and needy”, This is a description of His people, when they first enter the Land. ‘The Lord will give them strength, they will march into their heritage and not be weary’. Psalms 107:1-43, Isaiah 35:1-10, Jer. 31:7-14, Psalms 68:24-27

    Be patient, Israel, God is in control. Psalms 37:5, Jeremiah 23:24
    Put your trust in the Lord, He will help and strengthen you. 2 Corinthians 6:1-2
