Ezekiel 21:3 “And say to the land of Israel, Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I am against thee, and will draw forth my sword out of his sheath, and will cut off from thee the righteous and the wicked.  Seeing then that I will cut off from thee the righteous and the wicked, therefore shall my sword go forth out of his sheath against all flesh from the south to the north.”
Micah 7:11 “In the day when your walls are to be built, in that day the decree shall go far and wide.  In that day they shall come to you, from Assyria and the fortified cities. From the fortress to the river, from sea to sea and mountain to mountain.  Yet the land shall be desolate because of those who dwell in it and for the fruit of their deeds.
In previous posts, this author has made mention of Assyria corresponding with Germany and the House of Israel corresponding with America. In this post we will be looking at the judgment of Israel and the details of how it will unfold.
In Micah, the Assyrian will come from the fortress; ‘fortress’ can also be translated as Egypt, and they will come to the river. War will break out in Egypt as previously touched upon in the Final Time Line; however, I will reiterate here:
Ezekiel 30:1 The word of the Lord came again unto me, saying,  Son of man, prophesy and say, Thus saith the Lord God; Howl ye, Woe worth the day!  For the day is near, even the day of the Lord is near, a cloudy day; it shall be the time of the heathen.  And the sword shall come upon Egypt, and great pain shall be in Ethiopia, when the slain shall fall in Egypt, and they shall take away her multitude, and her foundations shall be broken down.  Ethiopia, and Libya, and Lydia, and all the mingled people, and Chub, and the men of the land that is in league, shall fall with them by the sword.
Ezekiel 30:9 In that day shall messengers go forth from me in ships to make the careless Ethiopians afraid, and great pain shall come upon them, as in the day of Egypt: for, lo, it cometh.  Thus saith the Lord God; I will also make the multitude of Egypt to cease by the hand of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon.  He and his people with him, the terrible of the nations, shall be brought to destroy the land: and they shall draw their swords against Egypt, and fill the land with the slain. . . .  The young men of Aven and of Pibeseth shall fall by the sword: and these cities shall go into captivity.  At Tehaphnehes also the day shall be darkened, when I shall break there the yokes of Egypt: and the pomp of her strength shall cease in her: as for her, a cloud shall cover her, and her daughters shall go into captivity.  And I will scatter the Egyptians among the nations, and will disperse them through the countries.  And I will strengthen the arms of the king of Babylon. . . .
Ezekiel 32:2 “Son of man, take up a lamentation for Pharaoh king of Egypt, . . .  I will therefore spread out my net over thee with a company of many people; and they shall bring thee up in my net.  And when I shall put thee out, I will cover the heaven, and make the stars thereof dark; I will cover the sun with a cloud, and the moon shall not give her light.  All the bright lights of heaven will I make dark over thee, and set darkness upon thy land, saith the Lord God.  For thus saith the Lord God; The sword of the king of Babylon shall come upon thee.  Asshur [Assyria] is there and all her company: his graves are about him: all of them slain, fallen by the sword:
Daniel 11:41 He [The King of the North] shall enter also into the glorious land, and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon.  He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Egypt shall not escape.  But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and of silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt: and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps.  But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many.  And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him.
Ezekiel 28:2 Son of man, say unto the prince of Tyre, Thus saith the Lord God; Because thine heart is lifted up, and thou hast said, I am a God, I sit in the seat of God, in the midst of the seas; yet thou art a man, and not God, though thou set thine heart as the heart of God:  Behold, thou art wiser than Daniel; there is no secret that they can hide from thee:  With thy wisdom and with thine understanding thou hast gotten thee riches, and hast gotten gold and silver into thy treasures:  By thy great wisdom and by thy traffick hast thou increased thy riches, and thine heart is lifted up because of thy riches:  Therefore thus saith the Lord God; Because thou hast set thine heart as the heart of God;
The above verses lay everything out succinctly: the Prince of Tyre sits in the midst of the seas, in the seat of God and makes himself as a god. This is the same as the Antichrist spoken of by Daniel; the Prince of Tyre is also synonymous with the King of the North. In previous posts such as ‘70 Years: the Years of One King – Queen Elizabeth and Tyre‘ the identity of Tyre as Assyria and Assyria as modern day Germany/Austria was established.
So we have the following:
- Tyre = Assyria = Germany / Austria
- Tyre/Germany Wars Against Egypt
- Egypt Falls
- From Egypt, the Assyrian–the Germans–come to the river
The river is assumed to be the Euphrates or the Nile, but neither are actually specified in scripture. The word is ‘nahar’ meaning, stream; river; canal. Some Bible commentaries review Micah 7:12 as millennial in nature:
“The prophet beholds people coming from all parts of the earth to Jerusalem. Isaiah foresaw the like future, and spoke of Assyria, Egypt, and Israel being assembled together, “whom the Lord of Hosts shall bless, saying, Blessed be Egypt, my people, and Assyria, the work of my hands, and Israel, mine inheritance”. The Christian reader can hardly refrain from discerning on the horizon of Micah’s vision that marvellous assembly of the representatives of the nations in Jerusalem on the Day of Pentecost.” – Ellicot’s Commentary for English Readers. Whereas the Pulpit commentary says, “Men shall flock to Zion as the metropolis of the new kingdom”.
However, this commentary makes little sense when Micah 7:11 says “In the days when your walls are to be built”, however in the Millennium, God will be “a wall of fire around [Jerusalem]” – Zechariah 2:5. Secondly, in Micah 7:13 we read, “Notwithstanding the land shall be desolate because of them that dwell therein, for the fruit of their doings.”
This verse is not in the past tense. The land is desolate because them that DWELL therein, not because of them that DWELT, and because of the fruit of their deeds, which implies the land is still inhabited by evil doers. Therefore this is not Millennial either.
So what does this verse really mean then? When we take into account Ezekiel 21:3 and that the sword shall go from south to north as well as Ezekiel 11:9 “I will bring you out of the city and deliver you into the hands of foreigners, and I will execute judgments against you. You will fall by the sword, and I will judge you even to the borders of Israel. Then you will know that I am the LORD.”
So what do we see from Ezekiel 21:3; Ezekiel 11:9 and Micah 7:11?
Assyria or the German / Austrian army will come to the southern border of America: judgment at the borders and the sword shall go from south to north. Germany will come to the river, the most southern river in the U.S.A. would be the Rio Grande. El Paso, Texas is situated on the Rio Grande and has a very strong federal and military presence. In fact, Fort Bliss is one of the largest military fortifications in the U.S.A. and is the largest training ground for soldiers.
Assyria will then go from sea to sea and mountain to mountain. What seas and what mountains are being spoken about? Hint: “And crown thy good with brotherhood, from sea to shining sea” – America the Beautiful
To the west, America is surrounded by the Pacific Ocean, to the east, the Atlantic. To the west is the Rocky Mountain Range and on the opposite side of the country are the Appalachian Mountains.
There will be an Austro-German invasion of America. The invasion force will come to Mexico first, though scripture indicates that the Mexicans and Germans are allies, and they will come to the Rio Grande.
El Paso, Texas may be one of the first targets. According to Micah, this invasion occurs in the days that ‘the wall is to be built’. There is only one wall being built, and that is Trump’s border wall.
Historically speaking, the Germans and Austrians have always had a good relationship with Mexico. This author has noted an interesting prevalence of German Youtubers who are married or in relationships with Mexicans, and have a particular inclination to South America.
Maximilian von Habsburg became the emperor of Mexico in 1864. His older brother was Franz Joseph, the emperor of Austria who initiated the first world war. Maximilian was shot by revolutionaries in 1867; his reign, short and tragic.
During World War I, Germany sent a telegram to Mexico, known as the Zimmerman Telegram which requested a military alliance with Mexico in the event the United States entered World War I.
An excerpt of the proposal is as follows: “We intend to begin on the first of February unrestricted submarine warfare. We shall endeavor in spite of this to keep the United States of America neutral. In the event of this not succeeding, we make Mexico a proposal of alliance on the following basis: make war together, make peace together, generous financial support and an understanding on our part that Mexico is to re-conquer the lost territory in Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona.”
The Niagara Falls Peace Conference in Canada kept Mexico a neutral party. Politically and militarily speaking, they were not in a position to fight against the U.S.A.
Ezekiel 21:14 Thou therefore, son of man, prophesy, and smite thine hands together, and let the sword be doubled [or repeated] the third time, the sword of the slain: it is the sword of the great men that are slain, which entereth into their privy chambers.
The sword that slays the great men is repeated three times: World War I; World War II; World War III.
It is of interest then that the Lord says Isaiah 10:20 “And it shall come to pass in that day, that the remnant of Israel, and such as are escaped of the house of JACOB, shall no more again stay upon him [the Assyrian] that smote them; but shall stay upon the Lord, the Holy One of Israel, in truth.  The remnant shall return, even the remnant of JACOB, unto the mighty God.
The House of Jacob stays upon–meaning to lean, to lie, to rest or to rely on–the Assyrian. Jacob, which includes the tribe of Judah, will–at least for a short time–rely on the Assyrian. Which means the Assyrian will be thought of as a good and honorable man. Saviors to the people, and may be invited into the nation. After all, we see that the Lord bestows honor upon him. People of today consider the prophetic Cyrus to be an exalted, righteous figure. This coincides with the statement in Revelation 13:3 in that “The whole world will wonder after the beast”, and Matthew 24:24 “For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.”
So in conclusion: After Egypt is defeated, Germany will enter Mexico and come to the Rio Grande. From there, the Austro-German army, allied with the Mexicans, will launch an invasion into America. When they invade, America will already be desolate by them who dwell therein; i.e. Americans will destroy their own country before the invasion troops appear. And let’s face it, with America’s 2nd Amendment most countries would not want to invade America unless we were already defeated. Micah states plainly we will destroy ourselves. From there the armies will invade from coast to coast.
As mentioned in The Modern House of Israel, the Spaniards are descendants of Esau. Spain settled in Mexico and who went to Mexico and settled there have left a mark on the country. The Spaniards mixed with the natives and thus, Mexicans (perhaps not all of them) are also Edomites. For Esau always lived to the south of Israel.
Obadiah 1:9 “And thy mighty men, O Teman, shall be dismayed, to the end that every one of the mount of Esau may be cut off by slaughter.  For thy violence against thy brother Jacob shame shall cover thee, and thou shalt be cut off for ever.  In the day that thou stoodest on the other side, in the day that the strangers carried away captive his forces, and foreigners entered into his gates, and cast lots upon Jerusalem, even thou wast as one of them.  But thou shouldest not have looked on the day of thy brother in the day that he became a stranger; neither shouldest thou have rejoiced over the children of Judah in the day of their destruction; neither shouldest thou have spoken proudly in the day of distress.  Thou shouldest not have entered into the gate of my people in the day of their calamity; yea, thou shouldest not have looked on their affliction in the day of their calamity, nor have laid hands on their substance in the day of their calamity;  Neither shouldest thou have stood in the crossway, to cut off those of his that did escape; neither shouldest thou have delivered up those of his that did remain in the day of distress.
Ezekiel 35:2 “Son of man, set thy face against mount Seir, and prophesy against it,  And say unto it, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, O mount Seir, I am against thee, and I will stretch out mine hand against thee, and I will make thee most desolate.  I will lay thy cities waste, and thou shalt be desolate, and thou shalt know that I am the Lord.  Because thou hast had a perpetual hatred, and hast shed the blood of the children of Israel by the force of the sword in the time of their calamity, in the time that their iniquity had an end:  Therefore, as I live, saith the Lord God, I will prepare thee unto blood, and blood shall pursue thee: since thou hast not hated blood, even blood shall pursue thee.  Thus will I make mount Seir most desolate, and cut off from it him that passeth out and him that returneth.  And I will fill his mountains with his slain men: in thy hills, and in thy valleys, and in all thy rivers, shall they fall that are slain with the sword.  I will make thee perpetual desolations, and thy cities shall not return: and ye shall know that I am the Lord.  Because thou hast said, These two nations and these two countries shall be mine, and we will possess it; whereas the Lord was there:
Esau/Edom says, “These TWO nation and these TWO countries”. There are only two nations and two countries north of Mexico: America and Canada, both of which are Israelite nations. One can argue that his in regards to the Northern Kingdom and the Kingdom of Judah, but for one: prophesy is dual and two: Ezekiel 35:14 “Thus saith the Lord God; When the whole earth rejoiceth, I will make thee desolate.” The whole world won’t rejoice until Christ’s return which pitches this prophesy into the future.
Mexico will capture Americans (and possibly Canadians) and deliver them up to the invasion force. Their eyes will be fixed on conquering the continent. From there these American/Canadian captives will be scattered to all countries: Ezekiel 36:24 For I will take you [Israel] from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land.
In another post, this author will go through the Biblical prophesies that speak of Modern Day Israel [America] being scattered abroad and taken as captives into the world.
Return to the Lord and keep His commandments. Worship God, not idols and observe the Sabbath and Holy Days and pray the Lord will spare you the tragedy about to unfold in America. Our days are numbered. But remember, the Lord is our savior and he will bring us out of captivity, out of bondage and we will return to our lands, because he is a merciful God whose anger will not last forever. [Isaiah 57:16]
Micah 7:15 “According to the days of thy coming out of the land of Egypt will I shew unto him marvellous things. “
Exodus 34:10 “And he said, Behold, I make a covenant: before all thy people I will do marvels, such as have not been done in all the earth, nor in any nation: and all the people among which thou art shall see the work of the LORD: for it is a terrible thing that I will do with thee.”
