In many passages of Scripture the restoration
of God's people Israel (Jacob) in their own country is announced. The
oldest we find in Devarim (Deuteronomy) 30.
After Elohim in the preceding chapters had announced repeatedly that Israel would face severe hardship in the Diaspora, his representative Mosjeh fortunately could also provide a comforting announcement:
When all these words come upon you, the blessing and the curse that I have put before you, and you call them to mind in all the nations where YHWH your God has dispersed you, and you return to YHWH your God and listen to his voice according to all that I am commanding you today, you and your sons, with all your heart and all your soul, YHWH your God will then bring back your captives and show you mercy and regather you from all the peoples where YHWH your God has scattered you. Even if your people are dispersed to the extremity of the heavens, from there YHWH your God will gather you and bring you back. YHWH your God will bring you into the land your fathers took possession of, and you will possess it; and he will make you prosper and will multiply you more than your fathers.
YHWH your God will cleanse your heart and the heart of your offspring, so that you will love YHWH your God with all your heart and all your soul and you may live. Then YHWH your God will bring all these curses upon your enemies, who hated and persecuted you.
What a superb prophetical promise, where one can consider moreover that YHWH Elohim then proved already to be completely familiar with the entire historical development of his people Israel, his Wife-Congregation, even before the Israelites could have put one foot in the Land of Promise. Already then YHWH knew - it turned out much later - that he would expel his ‘Wife’ to all nations, but also that afterwards he would gather her again.
To date, the fulfilment of this promise did not yet come. YHWH Elohim has certainly not brought back his people to the dear country. And surely, the Jews as a people have not taken at heart all these words: the blessing and the curse that I have put before you.
But when that time comes YHWH Elohim will surely punish those enemy-states that hated you and persecuted you. A second assurance of that part of Elohim’s purpose is found in Zephaniah:
Behold, I will deal at that time with all those afflicting you, but I will save her that is limping, and gather her that is scattered.
I will set them as a praise in all the land of their shame.
At that time I shall bring you people in, even in the time that I gather you. Because I will give you a name and a praise among all the peoples of the earth, when I gather back your captivity before your eyes, YHWH has said (Zph 3:19-20).
From the prophecies in Jeremiah, chapter 25, we find further details when precisely we may expect that YHWH Elohim will take revenge on those nations that severely afflicted his own people, His pupil’s eye (Zch 3:8).
Jeremiah had to take the cup of the wine of God's wrath and give it for drinking to all the nations to whom Yahweh sent him:
When 70 years have been fulfilled… For thus said YHWH Elohim of Yisrael to me:
“Take this wine cup of wrath from My hand, and make all the nations, to whom I send you, drink it. And they shall drink, and shake, and go mad because of the sword that I am sending among them.”
I then took the cup from the hand of YHWH and made all the nations drink, to whom YHWH had sent me… and all the reigns of the earth which are on the face of the ground. Also the sovereign of Sheshak shall drink after them.
Thus said YHWH of hosts, the Elohim of Yisrael:
Drink, be drunk, and vomit! Fall and rise no more, because of the sword which I am sending among you. And it shall be, when they refuse to take the cup from your hand to drink, then you shall say to them: Thus said YHWH of hosts, You shall drink!
For look, I am beginning to bring evil upon the city which is called by My Name, and should you be entirely unpunished? You are not going unpunished, for I am calling for a sword on all the inhabitants of the earth, declares YHWH of hosts.
And you shall prophesy against them all these words, and say to them: YHWH roars from on high, and utters His voice from His set-apart dwelling place. He roars mightily over His fold, a shout as those who tread the grapes, against all the inhabitants of the earth.
Tumult shall come to the ends of the earth, for YHWH has a controversy with the nations. He shall enter into judgment with all flesh. The wrong He shall give to the sword, declares YHWH.
Thus said YHWH of hosts: See, evil is going forth from nation to nation, and a great whirlwind is raised up from the farthest parts of the earth. And in that day the slain of YHWH shall be from one end of the earth even to the other end of the earth. They shall not be lamented, or gathered, or buried, for they are dung on the face of the ground.
A careful analysis of this chapter seems to reveal that in God’s dealings with the nations his prophesied judgments merge from the past into the future. This conclusion is further supported by the gematria which related to chapter 25 is strikingly End Times oriented. Especially verse 26 >>
And all the kings of the north, both near and far, one after the other, and all the kingdoms of the earth that are upon the face of the earth; and the king of Sheshach shall drink after them.
The total value of this verse is 5-666 and that reminds us at once of the number of the Beast –the Pseudo-messiah of the End time - according to Revelation 13:18 >>
Here is the wisdom! He who has understanding, let him calculate the number of the Beast, for it is the number of a man, and his number is 666.
In the figure of Haman in the Bible book Esther, we find the truth about the Beast, a.k.a. the Pseudomasjiach of the End Time, but hidden, as indeed is characteristic of the Esther story.
On the basis of the principles of gematria, the doctrine of numerical values of Hebrew Bible words, however, much becomes clear.
As we all know Haman was finally hung on the execution gallows that he had intended for Mordecai. But Haman also had 10 sons who, having been slain, were also hanged (Est 7: 9-10; 9: 7-10; 9: 13-14).
But what is intended in the story that those 10 sons are mentioned by name? Apparently, the mention of their names seems unnecessary; entirely irrelevant. On the contrary, however! Precisely through that YHWH Elohim revealed that the Beast and his 10 horns are supernatural and demonic. How?
On the basis of their numerical values.
First, of course, Haman himself. The story names him as:
Haman son of Hammedatha the Agagite.
The NV: 95 + 52 + 450 + 22 = Total: 619.
Then his ten sons. In Est 9:7-9 they are enumerated:
Parsandatha 1035; Dalfon 170; Aspatha 542; Poratha 687; Adalja 46; Aridatha 616; Parmastha 1021; Arisai 281; Aridi 225 (According to Brown-Driver-Briggs ארידי 225; also version JPS) and Waizatha 424. Total 5047.
Added to the NV of Haman: 5-666 (619 + 5047).
Exactly the numerical value of the Beast (666), the supernatural value 5000 inclusive.
See the study: Esther,
she who hid
The NV (numerical value) of Sheshach, which is cryptic for Babel, is 620.
And that is precisely the NV of Hater of all Jews (as was Haman in the Esther story).
But the value 620 is also the sum of Cush (326) and Nimrod (294), a duo that foreshadowed the Pseudo-messiah (Antichrist) in his twofold shape: The Beast and the False Prophet.
We are now living seventy years after the end of World War II, and consequently also 70 years after the end of the terrible crime of the Holocaust which caused the loss of 6 million Jewish lives.
And it is really inconceivable that the German nation, together with the other Jewish enemies, could escape God's judgment of wrath: Then YHWH your God will bring all these curses upon your enemies, who hated and persecuted you.
Now, living in the turbulent times
of the year 2016, it seems that Elohim's wrath
has already reached Germany. As may be concluded from this
