PEACE, PEACE – BUT THERE IS NO PEACE

A PROPHECY FOR 2021

PROPHECY is never a “one and done” deal.  A prophecy will reverberate (repeat) throughout history, or, another way of saying it, prophecy will “unfold” or come to pass, throughout history until Jesus fulfills all the prophecies with His appearing.  (see Matthew 5:18  and see https://whitestone2020.com/2020/12/06/bible-prophecy-has-come-to-pass/ for more on prophecy)

Can we learn from ‘past’ prophecies?

There is really no such thing as a ‘past prophecy’.  For example, the prophecies from Ezekiel are specifically for Israel and should not be applied to any other specific future Nation, state or people, but, since the book of Ezekiel contains prophecies relating to the Last Days and The Great and Terrible Day of the Lord, and they are applied to FUTURE days.

We are now well into the Last Days, and it would appear we are approaching the breaking of the 6th Seal, known as the Great and Terrible Days of God’s Wrath, America and all Christians would do well to take heed.

We can learn from God’s methods and ways of punishing evil, rebellion and disobedience toward Him. We can learn about God’s continuing mercy and loving kindness toward those who come to Him in humility and surrender.

A prophecy which was written to Israel and now applies to America.

Now, please read this prophecy and take heed.  The time of its fulfillment is at hand!

TO AMERICA – From – EZEKIEL 7

1 The word of the Lord came to me: 2 “And you, O son of man, thus says the Lord:  An end!  (See Matthew 24:22-31, Revelation 6:12 – 7:3)

The end has come upon the four corners of the earth(see Revelation 7:1 “After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth)

3 Now the end is upon you, and I will send my anger upon you; I will judge you according to your ways, and I will punish you for all your abominations. 4 And my eye will not spare you, nor will I have pity, but I will punish you for your ways, while your abominations are in your midst. Then you will know that I am the Lord.

5 “Thus says the Lord God: Disaster after disaster! Behold, it comes. 6 An end has come; the end has come; it has awakened against you. Behold, it comes. 7 Your doom has come to you, O inhabitant of the land. The time has come; the day is near, a day of tumult, and not of joyful shouting on the mountains. 8 Now I will soon pour out my wrath upon you, and spend my anger against you, and judge you according to your ways, and I will punish you for all your abominations. 9 And my eye will not spare, nor will I have pity. I will punish you according to your ways, while your abominations are in your midst. Then you will know that I am the Lord, who strikes.

10Behold, the day! Behold, it comes! Your doom has come; the rod has blossomed; pride has budded. 11 Violence has grown up into a rod of wickedness. None of them shall remain, nor their abundance, nor their wealth; neither shall there be preeminence among them. 12 The time has come; the day has arrived. Let not the buyer rejoice, nor the seller mourn, for wrath is upon all their multitude. 13 For the seller shall not return to what he has sold, while they live. For the vision concerns all their multitude; it shall not turn back; and because of his iniquity, none can maintain his life.

14They have blown the trumpet and made everything ready, but none goes to battle, for my wrath is upon all their multitude. 15 The sword is without; pestilence and famine are within. He who is in the field dies by the sword, and him who is in the city famine and pestilence devour. 16 And if any survivors escape, they will be on the mountains, like doves of the valleys, all of them moaning, each one over his iniquity. 17 All hands are feeble, and all knees turn to water. 18 They put on sackcloth, and horror covers them. Shame is on all faces, and baldness on all their heads. 19 They cast their silver into the streets, and their gold is like an unclean thing. Their silver and gold are not able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the Lord. They cannot satisfy their hunger or fill their stomachs with it. For it was the stumbling block of their iniquity. 20 His beautiful ornament they used for pride, and they made their abominable images and their detestable things of it. Therefore, I make it an unclean thing to them. 21 And I will give it into the hands of foreigners for prey, and to the wicked of the earth for spoil, and they shall profane it. 22 I will turn my face from them, and they shall profane my treasured place. Robbers shall enter and profane it.  (See Matthew 24:15-31  )

23 “Forge a chain! For the land is full of bloody crimes and the city is full of violence. 24 I will bring the worst of the nations to take possession of their houses. I will put an end to the pride of the strong, and their holy places shall

They will seek peace, but there shall be none.

25 When anguish comes, they will seek peace, but there shall be none. (See 1 Thessalonians 5:3 )

26 Disaster comes upon disaster; rumor follows rumor. They seek a vision from the prophet, while the law perishes from the priest and counsel from the elders. 27 The king mourns, the prince is wrapped in despair, and the hands of the people of the land are paralyzed by terror. According to their way I will do to them, and according to their judgments I will judge them, and they shall know that I am the Lord.”

OUR RESPONSE?

Dear brothers and sisters, I urge you in the name of the Lord Jesus to live in a way that pleases God, as you have learned. I know you are trying to live this way already, and I encourage you to do so even more. Remember what you have learned by the authority of our Lord Jesus.

No one needs to write to you about the importance of loving each other, for God himself has taught us to love one another.  Show your love for all the true believers who are doing what Jesus has taught.

Make it your goal to live a quiet life, minding your own business and working with your hands, just as you have been instructed.  Then people who are not believers will respect the way you live, and you will not need to depend on others.

I remind you this, directly from the Lord:  The Lord himself will come down from heaven with a commanding shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet-call of God. First, the believers who have died will rise from their graves.  Then, together with them, we who are still alive and remain on the earth will be caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. Then we will be with the Lord forever.  So encourage each other with these words.

Now concerning how and when all this will happen, dear brothers and sisters, I don’t really need to remind you because you know quite well that the day of the Lord’s return will come unexpectedly, like a thief in the night.

*When people are saying, “Everything is peaceful and secure,” then disaster will fall on them as suddenly as a pregnant woman’s labor pains begin. And there will be no escape.

But you aren’t in the dark about these things, and you should not be surprised when the day of the Lord comes like a thief.  You are children of the light and of the day; we don’t belong to darkness and night.

So be on your guard, not asleep like the others. Stay alert and be clearheaded. Night is the time when people sleep and drinkers get drunk.  But let us who live in the light be clearheaded, protected by the armor of faith and love, and wearing as our helmet the confidence of our salvation.

God chose to save us through our Lord Jesus Christ, not to pour out his anger on us. (see https://whitestone2020.com/2020/11/08/am-i-really-seeing-what-i-think-i-am-seeing/ )  Christ died for us so that, whether we are dead or alive when he returns, we can live with him forever.  So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you should already be doing.

This is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus:

  • See that no one pays back evil for evil, but
  • Warn those who are lazy in the faith.
  • Encourage those who are timid.
  • Take tender care of those who are weak.
  • Be patient with everyone.
  • Always try to do good to each other and to all people.
  • Always be joyful.
  • Never stop praying.
  • Be thankful in all circumstances,
  • Do not stifle the Holy Spirit.
  • Do not scoff at prophecies,
  • Test everything that is said.
  • Hold on to what is good.
  • Stay away from every kind of evil.

( Paraphrased from 1 Thessalonians 4:1 – 5:22 )
