 Old Testament Prophecies

Render Key New Testament Prophecies

Crystal Clear


PURPOSE

The primary purpose of this document is to confirm to believers and unbelievers alike exactly what will take place soon - which - after a few "rough spots", will be essentially Paradise-like.


INTRODUCTION and BACKGROUND

As we pointed out in an earlier document (1):

The Prophet Isaiah foretold  that the lion and the lamb would lie down together and the suckling child shall play on the hole of the adder.  [Isaiah 11:6-7] 

It is patently clear that Isaiah, as well as Malachi [Malachi 3:1-6] , were speaking of a time after Jesus Christ's Second Coming but before the End of Time.

 Isaiah and Malachi were specifically speaking of  a time after the establishment of the Kingdom of the Messiah, Jesus Christ, amongst men in Time, an event that takes place after the End of These Times. They were not speaking about Eternity.

[Remember: "The End of These Times" IS NOT the same as "The End of Time".]

Scrolling all the way forward to the Book of Revelations - John the Evangelist stated:

1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth. For the first heaven and the first earth was gone, and the sea is now no more. 2 And I John saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 And I heard a great voice from the throne, saying: Behold the tabernacle of God with men, and he will dwell with them. And they shall be his people; and God himself with them shall be their God. 4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes: and death shall be no more, nor mourning, nor crying, nor sorrow shall be any more, for the former things are passed away. 5 And he that sat on the throne, said: Behold, I make all things new. [Rev. 21]

The above quotation from St. John's Revelations usually is interpreted as if he were talking about a period "beyond Time", i.e., in Eternity. Such assumption is also applied to Isaiah's and Malachi's prophecies.... yet, none of them are; they pertain to the Time frame of reference and not Eternity (2).


DETAILS

Let us scroll back to Isaiah again - this time to Chapter 65 - and see what he has to say in the Name of God....

13 Therefore thus saith the Lord God: Behold my servants shall eat, and you shall be hungry: behold my servants shall drink, and you shall be thirsty. 14 Behold my servants shall rejoice, and you shall be confounded: behold my servants shall praise for joyfulness of heart, and you shall cry for sorrow of heart, and shall howl for grief of spirit. 15 And you shall leave your name for an execration to my elect: and the Lord God shall slay thee, and call his servants by another name.

16 In which he that is blessed upon the earth, shall be blessed in God, amen: and he that sweareth in the earth, shall swear by God, amen: because the former distresses are forgotten, and because they are hid from my eyes. 17 For behold I create new heavens, and a new earth: and the former things shall not be in remembrance, and they shall not come upon the heart. 18 But you shall be glad and rejoice for ever in these things, which I create: for behold I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and the people thereof joy. 19 And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in my people, and the voice of weeping shall no more be heard in her, nor the voice of crying. 20 There shall no more be an infant of days there, nor an old man that shall not fill up his days: for the child shall die a hundred years old, and the sinner being a hundred years old shall be accursed.

21 And they shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruits of them. 22 They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree, so shall be the days of my people, and the works of their hands shall be of long continuance. 23 My elect shall not labour in vain, nor bring forth in trouble; for they are the seed of the blessed of the Lord, and their posterity with them. 24 And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will hear; as they are yet speaking, I will hear. 25 The wolf and the lamb shall feed together; the lion and the ox shall eat straw; and dust shall be the serpent's food: they shall not hurt nor kill in all my holy mountain, saith the Lord. [Isaiah 65]

A comparison of the above prophecy with that of St. John in Revelations Chapter 21 will clearly show that God is talking about here on Earth, in the Time frame of reference, not in Eternity.

Perhaps someone will ask: What about the statement in Revelations that "...the sea is now no more."  After all, there is no sea in Eternity and Earth (humanity) could not possibly function without water.

Let us now scroll all the way back to Genesis Chapter 1 where we read:

9 God also said: Let the waters that are under the heaven, be gathered together into one place: and let the dry land appear. And it was so done. 10 And God called the dry land, Earth; and the gathering together of the waters, he called Seas. And God saw that it was good.

"Waters" and "SeaS" is what we read - in plural terms and not singular. Therefore "the sea is no more" must refer to some particular body of water - the Sea of Galilee?, the Mediterranean Sea?, the Black Sea?, etc. - and not about all the oceans of the world without which human life, as we know it, could not be sustained in Time.

Now - let us place the statement made by God through Isaiah in perspective.  What was God saying before Isaiah 65:13 ?

11 And you, that have forsaken the Lord, that have forgotten my holy mount, that set a table for fortune, and offer libations upon it, 12 I will number you in the sword, and you shall all fall by slaughter: because I called and you did not answer: I spoke, and you did not hear: (*) and you did evil in my eyes, and you have chosen the things that displease me. [Isaiah 65]

(*)  The typical "Blind" and "Deaf" we often refer to.


He was describing the Tribulation which will come to an end when:

1 And I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit, and a great chain in his hand. 2 And he laid hold on the dragon the old serpent, which is the devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years. 3 And he cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should no more seduce the nations, till the thousand years be finished. [Rev. 20]

We are fully familiar with the Vatican's position about the 1,000 year Reign of Christ (3) - as familiar as we are with their repeated betrayal (4) of the One Who established them  for the benefit of mankind and not exclusively for their own benefit. As we have clearly shown, the "Excommunicators par excellence" have themselves been Excommunicated by Jesus Christ Himself (5) and their directives ceased to have any relevance somewhere between 1994 and 1995. (6)


CONCLUSION

Rejoice, brethren (7), Paradise is indeed at hand. There will be a "few rough spots" before we get there but it will certainly be worth it. Do not let the upcoming adversity dampen your hopeful spirit.

Yes, yes - we know - doomsday soothsayers have been claiming that for centuries but, we ask: On whose authority?

Brethren - from a purely scientific and truly objective points of view  - if God does not intervene soon (8) mankind will annihilate itself in less than twenty years... so, this time, on God's authority, miguel de Portugal tells you - this time Paradise is truly around the corner.

As for those who are on denial (9) and persist on being "Deaf" and "Blind", this is what Jesus had to say:

[Luke 12:54-57]    And he said also to the people, When ye see a cloud rise out of the west, straightway ye say, There cometh a shower; and so it is.   And when ye see the south wind blow, ye say, There will be heat; and it cometh to pass.   Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that ye do not discern this time?  Yea, and why even of yourselves judge ye not what is right?

To which we add: We truly regret it but their free will must be respected and we will not persist in helping them "See" and "Hear" ....  lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them. [Mark 4:12]
