Exodus

There is an exodus plan that God has provided for ‘a time of trouble such as never was since there was a nation,’ for His commandment keeping people.

As I heard the story of the children of Israel’s exodus to the promised land as a child I thought why were they always doubting and complaining and not following God, after all He was right there with them. But now it’s my turn and perhaps your turn to believe and trust in God in a way we never have known or anticipated before. God has given a way of escape to the promise land and the signal for that to begin and the sign of His return. 

The book of exodus was written and the experience shown particularly for those facing the end of the world.  The law was given to His people in the exodus movement which is to parallel the experience of an end time people. The bond of the world is to be cut free from those that choose not to  receive the mark of the beast. As there shall be no more buying or selling at that point people will need to trust God as their provider. 

Has God just brought us up to a precipice as it were to then drop off and try and fly? No the time has been here for a while in which to exercise faith in Him and be involved in His work. What was that business? Well for the church is was the three angels messages of warning and healing ministry. Restaurants, healing centres, naturopathy, health food outlets were to be established. Healing centre aways from the cities where work can be established for young people and families. 

God also has given warning through extra councils, that where possible for the sake of families, places should be secured in the country, not close to neighbours where one is free to worship God by the dictates of their conscience and have their own provision of land with food and water and provide a unique practical education for the youth. But what about our responsibility to warn the cities of coming destruction? This needs to also be done so not in the cities but where possible to access the cities so they can be warned. To position ourselves where the greatest good can be done for others. “But erelong there will be such strife and confusion in the cities, that those who wish to leave them will not be able. We must be preparing for these issues.” Prepare by praying for guidance and acting upon that to the best of our ability. 

A sign has been given for the coming of Christ. What is that sign? Jesus tells us. 

Matthew 24 The disciples ask Jesus tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? Jesus warns them of wars and false Christ but that does not indicated His return. 

But notice here Matthew 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.  (Then Jesus refers us back to the book of Daniel.)  24:15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) 24:16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:

The abomination of desolation as spoken of by Daniel the prophet is Rome in its two phases- pagan and from it papal Rome. These were both persecuting powers of the church of God. The book of Daniel expands on this power in relation to God’s church and the judgment. 

In Daniel 11 again the book expands on the themes presented with the King of the North represented as Rome and the King of the South we are told is Egypt. The church of Rome is identified as the little horn or the smallest nation in the world which is applicable today, the abomination of desolation used to refers to the beast with 10 horns and the little horn power that grows from its head, and the King of the North referring again to this power in its pagan and then Christian phase.

In Daniel 11, there is war between the King of the North and King of the South. The King of the North that is the church of Rome gathers its followers from the powers such as in the past France and Spain to execute its objectives but today it is Protestant America which we are told in Revelation  13 will make an image to the beast or become a prosecuting power that will give its power to Rome. Rome uses the most powerful nations to influence and execute its will through the state. Just look at who is in the driving seat of Protestant America today- a Roman Catholic supreme court judge majority. 

There shall be war in the middle east until the there is control by the Christian western world. Daniel 11:41 He shall enter also into the glorious land, and many [countries] shall be overthrown…
11:42 He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Egypt shall not escape.
11:43 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.  

The religious war now taking place in the middle east is what is being spoken of here.

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.

What are these tiding from the east and North? The real King of the North is coming that is Jesus and his people relay the message that Babylon is fallen and judgements will fall as the world seeks to worship a false messiah and has slain His people. He comes from the east to the west. Everyone shall see him and the earth will roll and the mountains be moved and dark clouds shall clash in the great atmosphere of the event.

It is the purpose of Lucifer to sweep all the earth in the deception of him presenting himself as Christ returned.  He will be worshipped and consult with world leaders. Those who refuse to worship him he will attempt through human agencies to blot from the earth in order that his supremacy of the world may not be disputed.–TM 37 (1893). {LDE 255.5}
The remnant church will be brought into great trial and distress. Those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus will feel the ire of the dragon and his hosts. Satan numbers the world as his subjects. He has gained control of the apostate churches; but here is a little company that are resisting his supremacy. If he could blot them from the earth, his triumph would be complete. As he influenced the heathen nations to destroy Israel, so in the near future he will stir up the wicked powers of earth to destroy the people of God.–9T 231 (1909). {LDE 256.1} 

the little horn or the false messiah shall plant his palace in the glorious holy mountain
at the that time will Jesus stand to deliver His people.

The eye of God, looking down the ages, was fixed upon the crisis which His people are to meet, when earthly powers shall be arrayed against them. Like the captive exile, they will be in fear of death by starvation or by violence. But the Holy One who divided the Red Sea before Israel, will manifest His mighty power and turn their captivity. “They shall be Mine, saith the Lord of hosts, in that day when I make up My jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.” Malachi 3:17.

There are three passages of scripture closely connected here. Revelation 13 & 14 and also giving us much detail is the end of Daniel 11 with the directions of Jesus to abomination of desolation. It indeed has a two fold meaning for the destruction of the temple as the disciples saw in their time and the end of the world as in our time but the disciple correlated the destruction of the temple with the end of the world.
