The great Time of
God has divided the history of mankind and creation in to Seven Ages. An age, or a time household.as it is described in the bible. A time household is a certain period in the history of mankind where a certain principle of rule or principle of salvation who is existing and are prominent. This principle is given by God and it Leeds to God if the humans will obey and listen to this principle. In addition, can there be more than one principle in the same period. Itís from one principle to the other in a other period. In spite of this there is always one who is the main principal.
The reason for God to give the humans ethical principle, is that he want all the humans to come to him and get part in the salvation ,who Jesus won for us all on the cross of calvery.Besides, in case, that the humans will not obey the principles, then God will use the principle to judge the humans , because God is a just God. Because the power of evil ,rules the world, will most of the people in the world be under Gods Jugdment.They will meet the salvasjon offer again , at the Last Day,(The Judgment of the white Throne).Besides God will give these ethical principle in completely measurement. He is a just God and he will give all the humans every possibility to be saved. In his wisdom and all-powerful might in awry time age, God have give us all the possibility and principle to be saved. The humans can not accuse God to be unjust on Judgment day, and say we don't had the opportunity to be saved. We have all been given that. On the last Judgment will all bend their knee for the justified judgment of Jesus Christ and receive their just judgment if it will be release pardon or condemnation.
This beginning chapter was shorten, and wary difficult to translate correctly
We have to remark, it is Jesus who shall Judge Humanity, The just God has given the power of Judgment to his only Son because its only him who has the knowledge what it will say to be human.Therfor he call himself for the Son Of Man. (the books was opened, The White Throne)

Defending the Christian faith beginning with Genesis
We have also to be aware of that the 7 Ages ends whit Gods Judgment over the humans.Befor God can give the human generation a new salvation principle, he have to clearance, what is evil.Humanety gets a new start after the Judgment of every Age. We shall short go through the different Ages and have a look on the main principle.
The first Age is the Age of innocence
In the garden of Eden.It,s described in the first book of Moses(Genesis)1.28-3,13 and lasted from the creation to the fall. The main principle in this period was that the humans was whit out sin an had a good conscience before God .We know that they spoke whit God and they cud see God as he Is. In the garden of Eden God establish the first covenant whit Adam and Eve. In this period lived the humans in innocents before God and each other, and the animals. We call this period for the Age of Innocents. But as we know this age ended whit the fall of sin, and they draw the rest of the creation whit them in to the sphere of sin.
Because the first humans fell in sin, and therefore have chosen Satan before God, this had a consequence for all humans. We know "That the fall of the singular the first Adam lead to condemnation for all the humans. But Jesus as the second Adam up righted the first fall.
Therefore as by the offence of one [judgment came] upon all men to
condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one [the free gift came] upon all
men unto justification of life.
Romans For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.
Because of the fall of sin, of humanity, the Earth and Humanity was taken from God and Jesus for a vile, as his legitimate,rightful property. Satan and his evil spirits took the heavens (near the earth Greek aira )as their residence. And from the Air he rules the earth and most of the humans as his obedient People.(subordinate oneself to. or subject to)Therefore is Satan the true ruler of this Age. the God of this Age -(2 korintiens 4,4) and the Prince of this World( John 12, 31.)
In the fall of sin Satan received the keys to the kingdom of death, nobody cud leave that place after they have died .Also the believing souls was kept imprisoned there. There was a change whit this after the redemption and resurrection in Christ. Whit this act he break the gates of death and took the keys of the Kingdom of death from Satan and whit his ascend to haven he cud transferred the saved souls from the Kingdom of death whit him into his one Haven - where they are,and praise God ,and waiting for the resurrection and change of the body of Christ and the other believing death.
Revelation I [am] he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.
Therefore the scripture say Ephesians 4:8 Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high,(to Haven) he led captivity captive(whit him to Haven), and gave gifts unto men. (lots of gifts)
Before the humans was chased out of paradise, the Almighty God established a new covenant whit them and gave them a promise, of a Savoir who should come into mankind. This promise is given to all humans everywhere and and in every time Age
Genesis 3:15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between they seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. This promise is attach to Messiah. Jesus Christ.
The other Age is the Age of Conscience
It is described in the first book of Moses or genesis 3,23 - 7, 23.It reached from the fall to the great flood and lasted in approximately 650 years. In this period, the Conscience shod be the moral guidance for the humans. The voice of God in each individual ,shod be the moral light, how they shod live. In addition they had natural, the other prow of the existents of God who was available at their time. It was the creation and the maintenance of this, and also the promise, of the Saviour who should come.But this Age shows that conscience alone was not strong enough to deal whit sin and temptation. We know from the bible that the evil in humanity was great and most of the humans were totally evil right through. Yes the daughters of men submitted to sexual contact between the fallen Angels. And there was born totally abnormal great- children, who was not of the creation of God, and was outside the plan of his creation. We canít look away from, this was Satanís plan to establish a new race, which in the perspective of time would expel and exterminate the Humans who are the creation of God.
And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and
daughters were born unto them,
Genesis 6:2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they [were] fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.
Genesis 6:3 And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also [is] flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.
Genesis 6:4 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare [children] to them, the same [became] mighty men which [were] of old, men of renown.Genesis 6:5 And God saw that the wickedness of man [was] great in the earth, and [that] every imagination of the thoughts of his heart [was] only evil continually.
On the other side we have to be aware of ,the good development of a good generation. This generation will obey the voice of their conscience in their hart and honour and worship God. In contrast to them who follows their evil mind. From this Age there is a separation of humanity in the knowledge of God, one who will follow the voice of God, and one who will be disobedient, the children of Satan.
Genesis 4:26 And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then began men to call upon the name of the LORD.
Genesis 6:8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.Genesis 6:9 These [are] the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man [and] perfect in his generations, [and] Noah walked with God.
Because of the sin in the world. God regret that he have created humanity, and decide, that he would exterminate all life on earth. and it rained in 40 days and nights, and the water was over the earth in 150 days. It was only eight humans who were alive after the so-called deluge, flood. This was a strong reduction of the creation and a new start for humanity. God made a Covenant whit Noah, this is the third Covenant of God whit the humans Genesis 9,1-17 This Covenant concern all humans. In this covenant the humans received the message from God to manage the creation on behalf of God. A massage they have also received in the Garden of Eden, In this Covenant whit Noah there is some rules which I shall not comment on now.(see the seven Noahkittis Commandments) but we have to notice us that this Covenant has a promise from God, that he will never more let humanity perish by a water flood. This promise of God has hold since that time.
The Rainbow Promise
ON THE GREAT FLOOD OF NOAH. by Lambert Dolphin
The next time there will
be a judgment, is in the 7 years period of tribulation who shall come over the
whole earth. We can see the outline of this today. Both the signs of time, and
of the establish of the State of
The flood of Francis Darby
(1)the sign of the Fig tree and other signs in the time.
2 The sign of Lawlessness.
3 The sign of Apostasy.
4 The sign of immorality.5 War and rumours of war. 6 The sign of Anti-Semitism7 The sign of Pace.8 The sign of great unions 9 The sign of the Time.10 The sign of the Antichrist.
The third Age as
described in Genesis 8, 20--11,9 It is called, the Age of Human authority, and
Rule. It lasted from the flood and to the confusion of
The humans should in this period rule totally the whole creation whit out interference from God. They was also given authority to take life both of humans and animals. Man was the ruler of the whole creation. In addition they were also requested to inhabit and subjugate the whole world. They started and set to work the mission, but when they come to Shinar (Babylon) they stopped and begin to build a city and a tower, which they use to idolatry.
11:1 And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.
Genesis 11:2 And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there.
Because of their disobedient against God whit their mission, which they have received from him. God had to act (encroaching) and destroyed their idolatry and temple, and confused their languish and scattered them over the Earth.
Genesis 11:6 And the LORD said, Behold, the people [is] one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.(To day we are back to this point, the world has become small ,because of technology, which can be used to both Good and Evil. Stein A Johannessen)Genesis 11:7 Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech.Genesis 11:8 So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.
The principle of human rule, on behalf of God did not work. The humans was then sent out in the world whit their one business( the creation of Nations) This shows that God canít rule the world whit the help of humanety.This principle is tried out , in thousandths of years already and now we standing on the threshold of the danger to exterminate our self, the next war WW 3.(the third birth pangs,) Humanity has never ruled the world on behalf of God, They have in the opposite rule the world for the Prince of this world Satan.The Nations and the Emperies is in opposition to Almighty God, this is the reason to the discord and wars in this world.In the millennium Kingdom ,who we can see are approaching,God will establish this rule again,but this time it will be ruled by the Son of Man Himself who shall be the sovereign Ruler from Jerusalem and Israel.Beliving Jews and Gentiles will take part in this the World Wide Rule, and Satan and his evil spirits shall be inprisond in the abiss for a thosend years.There shall be a time of pace whit out limits in the history of manncaind.It will show that the principle of the third Age is good, but because of the fall of sin in humanity,the humans are carnal and spiritedly weak and ] easily let them self be deceived ,"and they don't, or want, or can ,be obedient to the law of God.
After the third Age God let humanity walk their one ways,but his testimony of him, was whit them,he had not forgotten them,but he cud not take the stake to govern,the hole human race at the same time.
Who in times past suffered all nations to walk in their own ways.
Acts 14:17 Nevertheless he left not himself without witness, in that he did good, and gave us rain from heaven, and fruitful seasons, filling our hearts with food and gladness.
The fourth time Age.
God do something New, instead of tray to rule the hole humanity ,he took out a human of (gentile) humanity, namely Abraham and he wanted to form and shape his family and race after his will. This Age reach from the call of Abraham, and to the giving of the Law on the mountain of Sinai, and are described in genesis 12,1 -and Exodus 19,18. This Age reach form a time period of ca. 450 years.
This Age or Time Household of Promises.
In that time household God gave Abraham and his family, race, later the Jewish People a order of promises, whit out conditions. This can God do ,and have the opportunity to do so because he owns the hole earth, and he do whit his belongings as he place. This principle do we know wary well ,we who are living in this Age of Grace, and of the Holy Spirit, the total freedom in Christ which we are been given totally free, whit out conditions .The only conditions God sets, is that we come to Him in faith , and receive, what He would give us. The Redemption in the Blood of Jesus Christ our Lord.
In this way the fourth Age is simuler (likeness) to the Age we have today, we can say that the fourth Age, is a special part or space in time, of grace in the old testament. God acted whit mankind to take out a man for himself and his one people. The people of God in this World.
This is Gods rescue
operation to the hole of mankind. This is hidden for most of the humans today. That the Jewish People
See the territory promises of Israel in the King of the Jews
concern the promises, I will shortly mention, that the Jews received the
promises of the land of (
Genesis 15:18 In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates:
Genesis 12:3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
As the same way as the gentiles failed an did not walk the ways of the Lord, just the same happened whit the Jews, just the same way as the gentiles divided themselves in to groups, where the smallest group chosen to follow the Lord and his command and instructions. This was also truth about the Jewish People.
Isaiah 53:6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way;
This shows that what is flesh is flesh, and canít not be obedient to his command and instructions. On the other hand they who is born by the spirit is spirit, and they wish to be obedient and follow the Lord. God always act whit the remnant or the rest, this concern both the Jews and the Gentiles Itís the remnant who is countingĒor is important for God .The others is only at presents in short human life and decent to the kingdom of death, where they are waiting for the Judgment. The remnant on the other hand, they who want to be obedient in the Age, has only a break in the heavenly kingdom of the Lord, and they are waiting that he shall bring them in the rule connection of the Kingdom Of God ,who will come in ISRAEL.
The basis of this
With that,the victory was won from Gods side ,and Satan cud not more disturb his main plans. That this is correct do we see of what happened later, both whit Jesus and the Jews. No one is capable of exterminate the Jews; there has been many attempt to do so through the times. God is protecting his people.
What concern Jesus, we know so wary well , the history of Jesus .When Satan and his evil spirits believed that they have wiped out Jesus from the history of mankind on a cross of Calvary ,then he won the total and triumphant victory over them. When he was in his weakest moment in the garden ,and at the cross, then !he was strong, because God came and gave him strength .He was, with a rich man(God) in his death.
This happened at the
2:9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
Colossians 2:10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:
Colossians 2:11 In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ:Colossians 2:12 Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with [him] through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead.
Colossians 2:13 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;Colossians 2:14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;Colossians 2:15 [And] having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a show of them openly, triumphing over them in it.
We look forward to when the time comes that the evil spirits shall be thrown out of the heaven and down to earth, and this will be the end of the deeds of Satan forever.
Revelation 20:2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,
20:7 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his
Revelation 20:8 And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom [is] as the sand of the sea.Revelation 20:9 And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.
As all the other Ages this fourth Age also ends whit jugdment.Of every Jews who was over 20 years ,(age of majority) from the Exodus from Egypt, it was only Joshua and Kaleb who was found worthy to enter the promise Land. The others was wiped out under the wandering or journey to Sinai or in the wandering in the desert in 40 years. Not even the servant of God Moses who was highly esteemed as the greatest Prophet who ever have lived, had the opportunity to enter the promise land, because he once had been disobedient against the Lord.
Numbers 20:10 And Moses and Aaron gathered the congregation together before the rock, and he said unto them, Hear now, ye rebels; must we fetch you water out of this rock?Numbers 20:11 And Moses lifted up his hand, and with his rod he smote the rock twice: and the water came out abundantly, and the congregation drank, and their beasts [also].Numbers 20:12 And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron, Because ye believed me not, to sanctify me in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore ye shall not bring this congregation into the land which I have given them.Numbers 20:13 This [is] the water of Meribah, because the children of Israel strove with the LORD, and he was sanctified in them.
After the Jews had lived

thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud upon the mount, and the voice of the

meet with God; and they stood at the nether part of the mount.
Exodus 19:18 And mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the LORD descended upon it in fire: and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly.

Written With The Finger Of
The Fifth Age
And it contents the time from the introduction of the Law, till the coming of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecostal. This time age lasted in 1500 years and it,s called The Age of the Law.
After humanity have been
disobedient from the beginning against the Lord -from the creation -He would
now show them his one Purity and Holiness and their one insufficiency and debt(obligation) towards God, whit giving the Jews
the Holy Law. We have to remark, it was not only the Jews( the descendant of Abraham ) who received the law. In their Exodus from
What its concern why Abraham and the Jews was the chosen people the choice of God, is outside our competence to say something about. We know that God chose whoever he wants, to be what he has appointed in his Kingdom. And his call, and gift of grace ,and promises, the Lord never regrets.
Besides we know what the Lord does, He does what is right. When he chosen the Jewish people ,to his people we know that was right. He chose of the Jewish People, as his people was a right decision, and it stands firm in Eternity. That God had taken out his People for himself in a special way don't mean that God do not care about the other people around the world, he cares about us just as much as the Jews, but because of the greater part of the Gentiles would not obey the voice of God in the salvation manifestation in in the different Ages, he had to take out his one People
We can say it like this: For the reason of Love to the Gentile People and his promises to them, (for instance), If the Savoir shall come, he wanted through the Jewish People and the birth of Christ to provide ,that also the Gentiles cud have part in the Salvasjon ,who should come. THE CHOSE OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE AS HIS ONE PEOPLE IS NOT A DISREGARD OR LEFT OUT OF THE GENTILES BUT IT IS IN THE OTER HAND A SALVATION AND A RESCUE OPERATION FROM GOD to the Gentile people ,to the hole World. Because God has taken out his one People" ,through his People! the Jews , He connected the Gentiles into his Salvation Plan.--GOD KNOWS, WHAT HE IS DOING
What concern the chose, this lie in the counsel of God and his preconceived decision, we know that it was not of power and might ,in the Jewish People ,when he choose the twelve tribe People of Israel. In the contrary they were chosen because they were a small people who cud not trusts on their power and ability in the wandering. The Power of God is accomplished in frailty and weakness. We know when we are weak and frailty in this world (in our selfís), then God can advise us ,and we are strong in his Mighty Power. This was also true whit the Jews, (I shall be quiet and I the Lord shall fight for you.)
7:6 For thou [art] an holy people unto the LORD thy God: the LORD thy God hath
chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that [are]
upon the face of the earth.
Deuteronomy 7:7 The LORD did not set his love upon you, nor choose you, because ye were more in number than any people; for ye [were] the fewest of all people:
Deuteronomy 7:8 But because the LORD loved you, and because he would keep the oath which he had sworn unto your fathers, hath the LORD brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you out of the house of bondmen, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt.
After the Jewish People
had wander in 3 months from
We have to understand that the Almighty God don't want to force his offer on us, and when the Jews said yes to Gods offer at Sinai, this decision was taken on voluntarily basis and after consideration ,because they have got the knowledge of the Laws of God already at Marah
Exodus 15:25 And he cried unto the LORD; and the LORD showed him a tree, [which] when he had cast into the waters, the waters were made sweet: there he made for them a statute and an ordinance, and there he proved them,Exodus 15:26 And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I [am] the LORD that healeth thee.
We have to be aware of the condition that the Jewish People had not need to received the the law of Sinai, because God don't want to force the Law onto his people, but when they do received the Law of God it was by their one free will and of their one conviction, that this was the best for them. Whit Sinai they call out load several times that they would have the Law and that Moses should be the mediator between them and the Almighty God.
And the people answered all as one and said everything that the Lord have said will we do. And Moses carried the word of the people back to the Lord.( free translated)
The Law was given to show the insufficiency of man in the question of Salvation. The Law gives the expression for the will of God, and we know if they who fulfil the Law shall be saved by the Law, we also know that no human manage to fulfil the claims of the Holy Law of God. Because of this we know naturally that no human have the effort to save himself. The Law is therefore pointing on a mediator who can for fill the Law for all of humanity. The Law points to our Saviour who was promised already whit the fall of sin in the first Age.
THE LAW IS POINTING ON THE COMING OF JESUS HIS DEATH AND RESURRECTION.
Besides ,the Law is not
just pointing to the degradation of Jesus but also his coming as King in the
(.And he is still waiting.)
The Law is also pointing on the service of God in the time of the millennium Kingdom. We know that the
Law in no way shall disappear or be taken away , but Jesus is deepening the Law in the sermon on the mount Matthew 5-7 In Matthew 5-7 we get a illustration of the legislation in the millennium Kingdom where the law will be extended and the Temple will be rebuilt and the offerings will come back, this shall we deal with later.
The Law points also to the Jews who shall be Priests and a holy People in the Kingdom, this will happen to its fulfilment in the Millennium Kingdom. They shall together whit other believers be the Prists of God both in Israel and to the rest of the world. They shall adjudicate the Gentiles and ensure that the Law will be followed and respected Voluntarily or by Force. Because it will be a totally just rule in the Kingdom, the demand to the people both the believes, and the unbelievers will be set to a much higher standard than it is today.
We understand of this that both the Age of promises and the Age of the Law is pointing forwards to the Kingdom for Israel, and we understand of this ,that the different Ages is not only given to give the humans a variable offer of Salvation.
In its deepest essence
and deepest contents, are all the different Salvation Ages who we have dealt
with, they are pointing forwards to the Kingdom for
Isaiah 62:6 I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem, [which] shall never hold their peace day nor night: ye that make mention of the LORD, keep not silence.Isaiah 62:7 And give him no rest, till he establish, and till he make Jerusalem a praise in the earth.
The Law is not only claims for the humans, it regulates both the conditions between the humans(human life) and the condition between God and the humans. When the humans is respecting and holds the Law than the relations between the humans will be good and human life and the wandering will be much easier, and at the end of the day of earthly life, the Lord will take us over into his Kingdom
The claims of the Law is therefore just a outside arrangement and a remedy
IN ITS DEEPEST CHARACTER THE LAW IS A GOSPEL, and a good message
The good message is for they who live up to the Law, they shall have a good life and after this life inherits eternal life. Itís just the same what Jesus speak about to his disciples,: That they should have a good human life and have all that they need in this life, and inherits eternal life after death
Mark 10:29 And Jesus answered and said, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel's,Mark 10:30 But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life.
Therefore we can see that the Law is holy good and just, and the gospel of salvation itís the aim point of the Law. We have to mark us that the different Ages in the scripture whit its contends is a good message of salvation in all the Ages.
Whit the Law, the commitments also came to the people from God. The covenant of Sinai is a conditional covenant of grace. The fulfilment of this covenant are in the terms of if the people holds the covenant. When God couldn't give the Jewish people the blessings who is described in the Sinai covenant, whit all its aspects, this have its explanation in the condition that God cant fulfil the promises before the people is obedient, and obedient will they all first be in the great tribulation.
God has given the Jewish people until now just a small part of the promises, which he gave them in the time of the Old Testament. God wants and wish to fulfil all the promises but many of them is tie up to the Jewish peoples commitments. We can sum it up at the end of this ,in this condition to fulfil, is what God wants to!" and that is ,"that the Jewish people shall be saved as a hole People. When the Jews in the near future will yield for their one Messiah ,who came to them for 2000 years ago. Then the time has come, for God to completely fulfil the promises to the Jewish People. THE WORLD WAITS FOR THE CONVERSION OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE.(THE SABBATH DAY FOR ISRAEL AND THE WORLD)
He will return from the sky to solve all the problems of the world.
Greek theokratia, "government by God"
Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.Isaiah 9:7 Of the increase of [his] government and peace [there shall be] no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.

We know and can see that this time is approaching and that the Jews become more and more aware of Jesus. They say that they will have him back from the diaspora in Christianity and brush him clean from the dirt and the misconception in the Church. In this process, they will discover,"that not everything what the Church have said about him is wrong. What concern the reconciliation side of Jesus the Church is broadly speaking raight.But what concern Jesus as King ,the Church is in a way speaking wrong.
Jesus is both the sacrificial lamb of God and the King who shall sit on the throne of David in Jerusalem. Jesus is the Messiah and the MESSIAH IS THE SACRIFICE RECONCILIATION AND KING IN THE ONE AND SAME PERSON.
We have to submit for the wisdom of God and his ways. Jesus is both God and Human in the same Person. How deep is the word of God, and how delightful is the prophetic word. We have to bow our knees of all this in worship and admiration.
Isaiah 55:8 For my thoughts [are] not your thoughts, neither [are] your ways my ways, saith the LORD.Isaiah 55:9 For [as] the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how
unsearchable [are] his judgments, and his ways past finding out!
Romans For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor?
Romans Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again?
Romans For of him, and through him, and to him, [are] all things: to whom [be] glory for ever. Amen.
What concern the commitments that were laid upon the Jewish people. Primarily, first of all in the Decalogue, the Ten Commandments (Exodus 20,1-26) The Lord say if you are (the Jewish people) obedient and do what I say. It should go them well. If you are disobedient against my Commandments and my prescriptions it will go them bad. This is the Law of the Commandments.
In the unconditional promises on the other hand God says to the People I will do this or that, I will give it for free whit out condition. I shall be quiet and I shall fight for you.
There is a great difference between the unconditional promise of grace one this side, and the claims of the Law at the other side, but we have to be aware of that the Law in its inner contents (essence) is promesis.The Law is based on, if the people fulfil the condition of the Law. But we knows that the claims of the Law is to great and unattainable for any human to fulfil them, but we know also , what was impossible for humanity to fulfil.
This have God done, when he sent his Son --To this vale of tears.
If we (They) can see the claims of the Law in the light of this, then it is the aim, objective for the Jewish People is in reach. THE AIM OBJECTIVE IS THE SALVATION OF THE JEWS. The Jews have to go the same way as all the believing humans before where both the road and the goal is, Jesus Christ o'er Lord
He is standing there in the shadow in the future, and waiting for his
They see him dimly now, but that is not enof.One day shall He shine for them, and they will understand that He is the clear morning star and the sun of righteousness shall go up over this people with healing in his wings
Revelation I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, [and] the bright and morning star.
But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun(Jesus) of righteousness arise
with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the
In connection whit entering the Law on Sinai -- The Jews receive 5 general promises. Who is determined by, the condition, that they hold the Law. The Jews received also other promises. But we shall concentrate on these 5 promises, because in these 5 promises they are related to if the condition is fulfilled. If they do, this or ,that ,in obedience they should attain the promises. These promises are as follows
1:)--Exodus 15:26 And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I [am] the LORD that healeth thee.
2)If they hold the covenant, they should be the Lords property People before other people .
Exodus 19:5 Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth [is] mine:
3)If they hold the covenant, they should ,the Jews, all be priests, and a Kingdom of priests.
And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These [are]
the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of
4) If they hold the covenant, they should all be a holy nation.
Exodus 19:6 and an holy nation.
5)If they listen to the Angel who God send whit them, who is Jesus in his pre existence. it would go their enemy wary wrong
send an Angel before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the
place which I have prepared.
Exodus 23:21 Beware of him, and obey his voice, provoke him not; for he will not pardon your transgressions: for my name [is] in him.
Exodus 23:22 But if thou shalt indeed obey his voice, and do all that I speak; then I will be an enemy unto thine enemies, and an adversary unto thine adversaries.
This condition is also coming to the expression in the new covenant of God who the Jews enter into, just before they entered in to the promise land, after 40 years of wandering in the Sinai desert. This is both a confirmation of the covenant at Sinai for the new generation of Jews who was born under the wandering, and this is also concern the new covenant, which we call the Palestine covenant ,or the land covenant.
29:1 These [are] the words of the covenant, which the LORD commanded Moses to
make with the children of
In the whole chapter 28 Moses make a statement to the Jewish people about the blessing and the curse. If they hold the words and the commandments in the covenant, this would lead to blessing for them, and if the opposite happen this would be a curse for them. I will give a short summary of the different blessings and curse who is expressed in this chapter. All the details can the reader find out for himself whit reading the chapter.
Deuteronomy 28:1 And it shall come to pass, if
thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe [and]
to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God
will set thee on high above all nations of the earth:
Deuteronomy 28:2 And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God.
28:3 Blessed [shalt] thou [be] in the city, and blessed [shalt] thou [be] in
the field.Deuteronomy 28:4 Blessed [shall be] the fruit of thy body, and the
fruit of thy ground, and the fruit of thy cattle, the increase of thy kine, and
the flocks of thy sheep.
Deuteronomy 28:5 Blessed [shall be] thy basket and thy store.
Deuteronomy 28:6 Blessed [shalt] thou [be] when thou comest in, and blessed [shalt] thou [be] when thou goest out.
Deuteronomy 28:7 The LORD shall cause thine enemies that rise up against thee to be smitten before thy face: they shall come out against thee one way, and flee before thee seven ways.
28:8 The LORD shall command the blessing upon thee in thy storehouses, and in
all that thou settest thine hand unto; and he shall bless thee in the land
which the LORD thy God giveth thee.
Deuteronomy 28:9 The LORD shall establish thee an holy people unto himself, as he hath sworn unto thee, if thou shalt keep the commandments of the LORD thy God, and walk in his ways.
Deuteronomy 28:10 And all people of the earth shall see that thou art called by the name of the LORD; and they shall be afraid of thee.Deuteronomy 28:11 And the LORD shall make thee plenteous in goods, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy ground, in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers to give thee.
Deuteronomy 28:12 The LORD shall open unto thee his good treasure, the heaven to give the rain unto thy land in his season, and to bless all the work of thine hand: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, and thou shalt not borrow.
Deuteronomy 28:13 And the LORD shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath; if that thou hearken unto the commandments of the LORD thy God, which I command thee this day, to observe and to do [them]:
This was the offer of blessing which the Jewish people received before entering the promise land, but they also received the cruse if they were disobedient. They knew what they walk into whit open eyes, but unfortunately most of the people chosen the cruse. And God had to punish them and set aside the offer of blessing to them.

Many things in the history of salvation are waiting for the conversion of the Jews and its dependent of this great event before it can be fulfilled.
Deuteronomy 28:15 But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee:
28:16 Cursed [shalt] thou [be] in the city, and cursed [shalt] thou [be] in the
field.Deuteronomy 28:17 Cursed [shall be] thy basket and thy store.
Deuteronomy 28:18 Cursed [shall be] the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy land, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep.
Deuteronomy 28:19 Cursed [shalt] thou [be] when thou comest in, and cursed [shalt] thou [be] when thou goest out.
Deuteronomy 28:20 The LORD shall send upon thee cursing, vexation, and rebuke, in all that thou settest thine hand unto for to do, until thou be destroyed, and until thou perish quickly; because of the wickedness of thy doings, whereby thou hast forsaken me.
28:21 The LORD shall make the pestilence cleave unto thee, until he have
consumed thee from off the land, whither thou goest to possess it.
Deuteronomy 28:22 The LORD shall smite thee with a consumption, and with a fever, and with an inflammation, and with an extreme burning, and with the sword, and with blasting, and with mildew; and they shall pursue thee until thou perish.
Deuteronomy 28:23 And thy heaven that [is] over thy head shall be brass, and the earth that is under thee [shall be] iron.
28:24 The LORD shall make the rain of thy land powder and dust: from heaven
shall it come down upon thee, until thou be destroyed.
Deuteronomy 28:25 The LORD shall cause thee to be smitten before thine enemies: thou shalt go out one way against them, and flee seven ways before them: and shalt be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth.
28:64 And the LORD shall scatter thee among all people, from the one end of the
earth even unto the other; and there thou shalt serve other gods, which neither
thou nor thy fathers have known, [even] wood and stone.
Deuteronomy 28:65 And among these nations shalt thou find no ease, neither shall the sole of thy foot have rest: but the LORD shall give thee there a trembling heart, and failing of eyes, and sorrow of mind:
Deuteronomy 28:66 And thy life shall hang in doubt before thee; and thou shalt fear day and night, and shalt have none assurance of thy life:Deuteronomy 28:67 In the morning thou shalt say, Would God it were even! and at even thou shalt say, Would God it were morning! for the fear of thine heart wherewith thou shalt fear, and for the sight of thine eyes which thou shalt see.
Deuteronomy 28:68 And the LORD shall bring thee into Egypt again with ships, by the way whereof I spake unto thee, Thou shalt see it no more again: and there ye shall be sold unto your enemies for bondmen and bondwomen, and no man shall buy [you].
From here I have shorten this chapter a bit about the curse .It is a depressive reading. and a Warning to all the Gentile Nations If the they reject the salvation offer from God and the Lord Jesus Christ.
The wonderful and terrible responsibility what we chose.
Matthew 27:17 Therefore when they were gathered together, Pilate said unto them, Whom will ye that I release unto you? Barabbas, or Jesus which is called Christ?
What is this, this is a description of the History of the Jews in all its horror and terribleness. From the conquering of Nebuchadnezzar the 2 and the oppression of the Jews from the year 606 BC and forward to the end of the Great Tribulation. This is a history who reach over a period of 2600 years a history so full of suffering for this People that the world have never seen anything like it. This is the Gentiles and the World Emperies plot and war and wholesale murder against this poor and unfortunate People. Because a part of they rejected God,(their Messiah Yahshua ben Yosef, from Nazareth.)God had to reject them.(Set aside for a while) THIS IS THE HISTORY OF THE HATRED OF SATAN AGAINST THE PEOPLE OF GOD IN THIS WORLD.
He have tray in many attempt to destroy and exterminate this people in purpose to stop the plan of God whit his People if he had been succeeded not either the Messiah cud come or the Millennium Kingdom cud be established. But we know he has already lost that battle. The Jews is back in their one old Native Country Eretz Israel and the Messiah and the Kingdom for Israel will Come. Still, yet, in his defeat he will tray in( to?)Attacks against the Jewish people. But he will not have any success The first attack is from Gog Ezekiel 38:1 former Soviet Union(USSR) Todayís Russia together whit a rank of Arab Stats, shall attack Israel. In this attack the Lord shall intervene and save his people.
And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land
of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, [that] my fury shall come up in my face.
Ezekiel 38:19 For in my jealousy [and] in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel;Ezekiel 38:20 So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that [are] upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.
Ezekiel 38:21 And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord GOD: every man's sword shall be against his brother.
Ezekiel 38:22 And I will plead against him with
pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and
upon the many people that [are] with him, an overflowing rain, and great
hailstones, fire, and brimstone.
Ezekiel 38:23 Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I [am] the LORD.
This is the same as WW 3. Which we can see the contours of today.

Contribution by Stein A Johannessen
To write about the period of the Great Tribulation is wary painful The War Tired People of Israel shall again be attacked in their country whit the terrible loss of lives ,and also for the rest of the world. will the loss of lives be tremendous the Bible says that 2/3 of the population in the world and Israel will perish before the Lord set a stop for the deeds of Satan whit the help of Human hands. The human feelings in me is in torments, and protesting strongly, but we canít set aside the Word of God ,and the Prophesies.
The God of
Is Not an Old Myth.
We have to take the word of God seriously both Jews and Gentiles now, when we are still living in the Age of Grace.
For Israel .Zechariah 13:9 And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried:
For the Gentile Christian Nations who has not take the word and the call of Jesus seriously.
Revelation 3:18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and [that] the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
Revelation 16:13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs [come] out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.Revelation 16:14 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, [which] go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.
Revelation And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.
In this great attack against Israel and Jerusalem are the Jews squeezed as newer before in their history, by their enemys,and in accordance with the Prophet Zechariah shall 2/3 of the population be killed and the half of the inhabitants of Jerusalem have to go into exile.
13:8 And it shall come to pass, [that] in all the land, saith the LORD, two
parts therein shall be cut off [and] die; but the third shall be left therein.
Zechariah 13:9 And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It [is] my people: and they shall say, The LORD [is] my God.
14:1 Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the
midst of thee.
Zechariah 14:2 For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.
When the Jews are in their utmost danger to be exterminated as people. The Lord intervene and save his People from their enemies.
Zechariah 14:3 Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.Zechariah 14:4 And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which [is] before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, [and there shall be] a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south
When this happens, is
the time, what we call the time of the Gentiles over(run out expire ).Then it is the time of the Jews or
the Age of the Jews who begins. In approximately 2600 years they have stood at
the sideline and seen that their main task in the world as carrier of the plan
and the word of God as world missioners. Are carried out by others, which in a
small degree has effort to realize these great plans of God. In all these years
has the Jews been on the side line ,or in the periphery of their real main task
on earth, namely to be the People of God in the midst of a evil and a
unfaithful disbelieving world. Because most of them rejected the salvasjon
offer from God ,and his plans whit them,they was set aside for a wile in the
diaspora.(exile) Because of this they have not received the great blessings who was promised this
People.We see now that the Lord is leading his People back to Israel and they
are in the frame of the Blessing. The Jews is in beginning to gain into their
one blessings sphere because they are in their one country agein.Its in their
one Country the Lord will bless them and not in the Diaspora.(exile). The
promises listed up in Deuteronomy 28 is in the beginning to be in forced, and the
cruse is in beginning to turn to blessing. But its first in the Kingdom for

MESSIAH AS REDEEMER AND KING.
As I see the Ages, they
are not only represent in the Old Testament as a variation offer , of salvation
to all humans, but they are pointing forwards to the coming of the Messiah and
his reconciliation. on (Golgata) Calvary and the Kingdom for Israel. this
concern both the 3 first salvation Ages, and the to last in the time of the Old
Testament. God is introducing the Ages to give the humans knowledge of the rule
of Jesus in the
Both the Gentiles and the Jews had the promises of a Saviour and the Messiah who should come, and this promise is always separated in two. It concerns either suffering and death, or Rule and Royal Dignity. It concerns either reconciliation for humanity or Glory and Strong Rule from Jerusalem and Israel. When we read the prophesies of the coming of Jesus we have to be aver of this to division in the prophesies.
The description of Jesus as King in his Glory in the M- Kingdom is for the most dominant described in the O.T.,but we have to be aver ( observant) that the prophesies of the suffering and degradation of Jesus is also written many places. Yes the degradation side of the Messiah is written in a earlier time point, before the Glories side of the Messiah.
Genesis 3:15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between they seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
This double meaning
prophesies about the suffering of Jesus and the victory of Jesus and rule in
the M-Kingdom, is often so plaited together that the text is difficult to
divide the one from the other, but in most cases the prophets describe first
the suffering of Jesus, and after the Glories side of him. Itís natural that it
is in this order. THE RECONCILIATION IS THE BASIS THAT JESUS CAN BE THE LORD AND
CONQUEROR VICTOR, AND RULES THE WORLD IN THE 1000 YEARS KINGDOM -FROM
Before God took out his one people, the 3 first salvation covenants whit its promises was whit the gentiles. The greatest promises to the gentiles was the first gospel ,that the seed of woman ,it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. This gospel is named the proto gospel = (the first gospel) and it means that the gentiles also is included in the Reconciliation ,Redemption , on the Cross of Calvary. On Calvary (Golgotha) was the first part of this prophesy to be fulfilled, and it will further be fulfilled on Armageddon, and at the end of the M-Kingdom where it will have its final fulfilment.(Revelation; 20,1-3 and 7-10)
That God is also the God of the gentiles do we know of the condition, that He has create everything and He upholds everything whit his Power. He is responsible and he is a fond of (Loves) his creation, and he never forgets his creation humanity and beast and his total creation. Besides we know that there is only, ONE GOD, and the other gods is only evil spirits which the humans is worshipping.
Isaiah 42:8 I [am] the LORD: that [is] my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.
Further we can see, after the flood has been over the hole world, it was prophesied that God was Shems God. And God in his wisdom and far-seeing and all knowing, knew that the family, race of Shem would hold firm to the only true and real God in a special way.
And he said, Cursed [be]
Genesis 9:27 God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and
This is a promise who concern the gentiles because the Jewish People was not taken out yet ,as the covenant people. Shem is the ancestor, progenitor to the Semitic people, nation where the Jews is one of these people. This is a marvellous and( peculiar)prophesy who tells that God is Shems God in a special way.
Japheth is the ancestor, progenitor to the Indo European people, nation, who shall in a special way- benefit from Shems God.
What concern Ham he is reckon to be the ancestor, progenitor to the African people, and over them there is curse hanging over these people ( and Canaan shall be his servant.) who have indicated to be true in history. I will in this connection quote from John Holens book : the book of Daniel, prophetic perspective page 78-80, "The statement in Genesis 9 18-27 is one of the most incomprehensible in the Bible and history. The hole history confirms this Biblical statement
We have from this point the origin, source of races of mankind. It begins whit the tree sons of Noah, -Shem ,Ham and Japheth
Genesis These [are] the sons of Shem, after their families, after their tongues, in their lands, after their nations.Genesis These [are] the families of the sons of Noah, after their generations, in their nations: and by these were the nations divided in the earth after the flood
From here we meet the first authoritative statement about the human races forward in history. Itís not equality but dissimilarity who would rule between the humans, when they meet their place and destiny in the historic development ,which is set (Whilh MÝller) some has explained this as the People of the worlds historic salvations race program, humanity is now divided in three branches after the sons of Noah.
This great prophesy of Noah about the destiny of mankind ,which are the foundation for all of mankind ,and the history of humanity. And it begins whit a curse over his youngest son Ham a curse who reach his son Canaan-,Shem and Japheth in contrast received a special different blessings.
And he said, Cursed [be]

It is written about Japheth he shall live in the tents of Shem, he shall receive blessings through and from Shem. This happened in Christ and his world wide redemption
†On the Cross.
But Ham shall he always be under the curse ( quote Wilh mÝller also Ham have part in the promises in Christ. The promises refer to hole humanety.Some will ask, did God act total arbitrary when he let the curse came over Ham. We have to read what happen, Ham was shameless (brazen) when he told his brothers about their father, hem and Japheth is in the opposite, acted considerate and gentle. Why a part of humanity should be struck by a such cruel fate, there is not given any satisfaction answer to that question. see (Rev 16,7)

The redemption in Christ free the hole of humanity from bondage and slavery both in the inner soul of man ,and against his fellow human .On the Cross the libration of humanity begins, and through the first history of the Roman empire and forward to our time this liberation has evolved .No one can slave bond his human brother if he is black, white,yellow and red, we are all equal in Christ When John Newton had his eyes opened by the holy spirit ,what he was doing ,as a captain on a slave vessel.He had to prey to the Lord of forgiveness ,( Amazing Grace )From that day on he was a spokesman against slavery.
Against Slavery,and Racism
Colossians 3:11 Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond [nor] free: but Christ [is] all, and in all.Colossians 3:12 Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;Colossians 3:13 Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also [do] ye.
This is the power(Greek dynamos= power of God todays= dynamite ) of the Spirit against Slavery
Further it was clear that the Jews in a special way ,was the chosen people of God, but we have to be aver of it was as a gentile and not as a(circumcision) Abraham first received the offer about the land and salvation. God gave him his offer ,and it was up to Abraham to except the offer. He had to take the decision in his one country Mesopotamia, and as the man of faith he believe the word of God, he leaved his country, whit certainty of faith in his heart.
Genesis 12:1 Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will show thee:Genesis 12:2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:Genesis 12:3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
As history of salvation evolve, it was quite clear that the promises of God was amount to a coming of a Savoir
Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.Isaiah 9:7 Of the increase of [his] government and peace [there shall be] no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.
Further it was known that the Messiah should come from the tribe of Juda and form the family of Jesse,(Isais)from David.
Genesis 49:8 Judah, thou [art he] whom thy brethren shall praise: thy hand [shall be] in the neck of thine enemies; thy father's children shall bow down before thee.Genesis 49:9 Judah [is] a lion's whelp: from the prey, my son, thou art gone up: he (Jesus)stooped down, he couched as a lion,(the Lion of Judah) and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up?Genesis 49:10 The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him [shall] the gathering of the people [be].
And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall
grow out of his roots:
Isaiah 11:2 And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD;
Isaiah 11:3 And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears:Isaiah 11:4 But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth:(In the Kingdom) and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.
Isaiah 11:5 And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins.
Isaiah 11:10 And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse,(Jesus) which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek:(the Temple on Zion) and his rest shall be glorious.
There is particular; two sides of the Messiah which is prominent, the first, degradation and reconciliation side, and the second ,The Ruler and Royal Dignity. The degradation and reconciliation side was the most difficult task, and it had to come first. Even if these to tasks is different what concerns the glory and worship, Jesus is still the obedient servant of God in both cases. In the first task Jesus was in quietness and obedience. He was the Lamb of God who carried the sins of the world ,and He knew of the road of suffering to Calvary(Hebrew Golgotha)
Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, [in whom] my soul delighteth; I
have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles.
Isaiah 42:2 He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to be heard in the street.
Isaiah 42:3 A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not quench: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth.
Isaiah 42:4 He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he have set judgment in the earth: and the isles shall wait for his law.
Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath
called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of
Isaiah 49:2 And he hath made my mouth like a sharp sword; in the shadow of his hand hath he hid me, and made me a polished shaft; in his quiver hath he hid me;Isaiah 49:3 And said unto me, Thou [art] my servant, O Israel, in whom I will be glorified.Isaiah 49:4 Then I (Jesus)said, I have laboured in vain, I have spent my strength for nought, and in vain: [yet] surely my judgment [is] with the LORD, and my work with my God.Isaiah 49:5 And now, saith the LORD that formed me from the womb [to be] his servant, to bring Jacob again to him, Though Israel be not gathered, yet shall I be glorious in the eyes of the LORD, and my God shall be my strength.
Isaiah 49:6 And he said, It is a light thing that thou(Jesus) shouldest be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel: I will also give thee for a light to the Gentiles, that thou mayest be my salvation unto the end of the earth.Isaiah 49:7 Thus saith the LORD, the Redeemer of Israel, [and] his Holy One,(Jesus) to him whom man despiseth, to him whom the nation abhorreth, to a servant of rulers, Kings shall see and arise, princes also shall worship, because of the LORD that is faithful, [and] the Holy One of Israel, and he shall choose thee.
Isaiah 49:8 Thus saith the LORD, In an acceptable time have I heard thee,(Jesus) and in a day of salvation have I helped thee: and I will preserve thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people,(The New covenant(26-27) in his Blood) to establish the earth, to cause to inherit the desolate heritages;
What concern these to bible texts in Isaiah ,they first treat Jesus as the servant and Savoir, who shall lead the right (salvation) to the Gentiles. It is clear of the second text it shows the role of Jesus as the humble servant and the reconciler ,and the role of Jesus as King for the people. What concern ( Isaiah 53) this chapter described exclusively Jesus as the Lamb of God who carried the sins of the Jews ,and who have to die for the people. Here is the royal dignity in the kingdom not at all described. This chapter is unique in the O.T.and it speaks clearly that A MAN HAVE TO DIE FOR THE SINS OF THE PEOPLE, and he was so bad and rough mistreated that the people lookt at him in disgust.
Who hath believed our report?(the Jews) and to whom is the arm of the
Isaiah 53:2 For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, [there is] no beauty that we should desire him.
Isaiah 53:3 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were [our] faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.Isaiah 53:4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
Isaiah 53:5 But he [was] wounded for our transgressions, [he was] bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace [was] upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
Isaiah 53:6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is
brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb,
so he openeth not his mouth.
Isaiah 53:8 He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.
Isaiah 53:9 And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich(God ) in his death; because he had done no violence, neither [was any] deceit in his mouth.
Isaiah 53:10 Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put [him] to
grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering(when he died) for
sin, he shall see [his] seed, he shall prolong [his] days, and the pleasure of
the LORD shall prosper in his hand.
Isaiah 53:11 He shall see of the travail of his soul, [and] shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.
Isaiah 53:12 Therefore will I divide him [a portion] with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.
I have refer this chapter in it,s full length, because it deserve it in its fullness of true theology, and they who don't see this chapter refer to Jesus of Nazareth most be totally spiritual blind. He fulfilled all this in his life and in his wandering to Calvary. On the Cross of Calvary He redeemed all the sins of the world. On the third day He rose from the death as the redeemer of sin, and conqueror, victor of death. And this gave us all life and hope to everyone in their one life, which have been in fear and in pain of the perdition, of and Satan and Hell.
The redemption of Jesus reach forwards and backwards in the History of Salvation and it covering all the sins of mankind like a veil of reconciliation of the sins who has been done and they who will be done in the future. The foundation for the forgiveness of sin is given once and for all, to all of mankind in the redemption of Christ. It is for us to grip the outstretched hand of of God who is outstretch to all of mankind, and his hand is not late to save those who come to him THIS HAND IS SAVING BOTH JEWS AND GENTILES.
(THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD)
It is therefore critical that many of the Jewish Synagogues have not taken this important chapter whit them in the reading in the Synagogue in hundreds of years. They had ignored this chapter who is pointing on the Messiah as the Lamb of God who carried the sins of the world. This chapter has not fit into their theological system and because of this they will not acknowledge it. They have direct or indirect understand, that this chapter is a description of Jesus as their Messiah and Redeemer, and because of this they have let out this chapter from the reading in the Synagogue.
This Chapter is called
the bad conscience of the Synagogue, and it will be that way for the Jews until
the end faze of the great tribulation, where they will convert and they will
see that Jesus is their long expected Messiah. They will as people and remnant
convert to the Lord of
What concerns the The Royal Dignity of the Messiah this is much easier for the Jews to acknowledge. This has been written about many times in the O.T. and it was Royalty the religious leaders and the people look after when Jesus was in Israel the first time for 2000 years ago. But we have to take both sides whit us to get a complete picture of him. At first came the suffering side of Jesus and later will the Power side of him come.Befor he can be the The King of the Jews ,and King over the rest of the world ,he had to reconcile all the sins of the world.
REDEMPTION IS THE BACIS OF THE KINGDOM IN
And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And
let all the angels of God worship him.
Hebrews 1:7 And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.Hebrews 1:8 But unto the Son [he saith], Thy throne, O God, [is] for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness [is] the sceptre of thy kingdom.
Hebrews 1:9 Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, [even] thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows
In the O.T. we have and
overwhelming quantity of prophecies who concern the rule of Jesus from
To the chief Musician, A Psalm for the sons of Korah. O clap your hands, all ye
people; shout unto God with the voice of triumph.
Psalm 47:2 For the LORD most high [is] terrible; [he is] a great King over all the earth.
Psalm 47:3 He shall subdue the people under us, and the nations under our feet.
Psalm 47:4 He shall choose our inheritance for us, the excellency of Jacob whom he loved. Selah.
Psalm 47:5 God is gone up with a shout, the LORD with the sound of a trumpet.Psalm 47:6 Sing praises to God, sing praises: sing praises unto our King, sing praises.
Psalm 47:7 Ffor God [is] the King of all the earth: sing ye praises with understanding.
Psalm 47:8 God reigneth over the heathen: God sitteth upon the throne of his holiness.
Psalm 47:9 The princes of the people are gathered together, [even] the people of the God of Abraham: for the shields of the earth [belong] unto God: he is greatly exalted.
The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning
Isaiah 2:2 And it shall come to pass in the last days, [that] the mountain of the LORD's house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it.
Isaiah 2:3 And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.Isaiah 2:4 And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.
This is fine descriptions of the Kingdom in Israel ,and here its explicit " of a great time of pace on earth under the rule of Jesus. Itís only him who have the power to create peace.Thefor he have the name The Prince of Peace. Today the humanity tray to create peace by their one effort. I am sorry to say that they are not wary successful, because they are not include the spiritual dimension, the force of the deceiver (destroyer) ,Satans power who is much stronger than all the humans.
The force of the deceiver ,the dark genius force ,a deceiving and perverted reflection of God.
Lucifer (The shining one )And the reflection of Him ,The Anti Christ.
He has now as purpose to destroy humanity and the creation of God in his hatred and loss. When Jesus Christ conquered him on the cross and took away his seat of power, the Kingdom of Death. He knows his time as ruler of this earth is short ,and when he goes down to judgment he will try to take as much of the creation whit him to the abyss as possible (the Nero order)(Strategy MAD push the button and set nuclear fire to the world )the world has once gone under by water itís no prepared for the fire.

If humanity had allied themselves whit the Man from Nazareth
the world had been in peace
.because most of humanity donít believe in him or reject him there is no peace, just unpeace and wars left
There is no peace for the ungodly says the Lord, just unpeace.
Today there is developed various movements inside Judaism,who have different view of the Messiah as the redeemer and King .We have to except the Messiah believing Jews who believes and see that ,Hebrew ,Yehshua ben Yosef, from Nazareth.(Greek Jesus) is the Messiah of the Jews. The others have that in common, that they canít see that Jesus is the Messiah of the Jews and therefore ,they cannot see the reconciliation side whit the Messiah (Jesus).
What concern the Royal Dignity whit the Messiah the Liberal Jews means that they canít expect a personal Messiah. It is the Jewish People who are the carrier of the Messiah figure and in steed of a personal Messiah the liberal Jews have replaced a personal Messiah whit a kingdom of happiness on the earth from Israel and Jerusalem.
The Orthodox Jews keeps on the other hand firm to a personal coming of the Messiah. And He will save his People from their enemies, and establish the Kingdom for Israel. The Jews will have an exceptional position in this Kingdom.
This view is in coordination and responds best whit the Christian view on the Messiah, even if ,"in Christianity there is different evaluation what concern Jesus as King in the Kingdom for Israel. I will describe the view of the Orthodox Jews about the Messiah as King in the Kingdom. Professor Klausner describes the picture of the Messiah as follows:" The Jewish Messiah is a redeemer, strong what concern extern power and spiritual power, who will in the last days bring the Jewish people totally redemption in the economic and spiritual, in every way ,and together whit eternal peace, and material wealth and moral perfection for the hole of mankind. The Messiah will not be equal to God ,which the Christians assert, He will be a human of flesh and blood as all the rest of us, but whit the difference that he will be spesjely(specific)equip whit the spirit of the Lord. See Isaiah 11,1-5 and 10,13. He will therefore have no pre existence as person.
I will quote from
professor Peter Beyerhaus book, The plan of God whit
Chaim Shivili describes the Messiah as follows in his book, The Time of Salvation page 115-116:" This man which dictatorship the whole world is waiting for. Not a dictatorship of power and materialism or of scientific theory and systems, but a dictatorship of the Word of Life and the Glory of the Lord, who will be widespread to the hole world through Him. It will not happen whit force and authority, but in a fine and gentle way. The hole world will seek and learn from him. He will solve the most complicated problems ,which in thousands of years have engage the most brilliant brains. He will heal the sick where modern science is helpless, and provide for us the most perfect system for work and industry, there will not be poor and needed workers on the one side, and lacy greedy capitalists on the other side. Whit his moral beauty and supreme wisdom of all the problems of life, He will also have abundance of physical power and beauty full of Glory and Majesty which is proper for a descendant of David ,son of Isais.And his piercing glance from His eyes will be enough to give judgement in complicated cases and questions. Justice and justice, legitimacy shall be the cornerstones in his life, and it shall not be theories and speculation in parties family and Nations. In his days will the question be: What is Justice, will be topical. He will prove justice in practice ,in every single case. Shechina, The glory of God will rest (dwell) on Him, and awry word who is spoken from His mouth will be the same as the word of God.
This picture of a superhuman who will come and have a exceptionally possession in the world and among the Jewish People, but the Orthodox Jews will not acknowledge him as God. They think that He will evolved His character gradually after He have gone public among the Jews. I will quote from Chaim Shivilis Book The Time of Salvation page 17.This translation to Norwegian of Oskar Edin Indergaard is coreckt (but from Norwegian again is amateurish done)
He will not come to his greatness at once but gradually step by step. First shall the spirit of the Lord, the Holy Spirit rest up on Him. The wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and strength,( etc.)This is indicating a time for Him to grow, because He will not be capable of receive all this characteristic at once. 7 spirits and 7 characteristic, because He is born of a woman. Therefore itís not logical that He, at once He revealed himself will do miracles ,and satisfy a lot of People. It is not necessary for Him to show miracles and wonders to believe that He is sent of the Lord. His exalted personality will itself be the prove of who He is: His purity and righteousness. The signs and wonders will just follow when he has established the Kingdom. Before the Messiah can come must 4 events be fulfilled:
1 The conversion of the Jews to fulfill the Law
2 The tribulation who will be befor the coming of Messiah
3 The coming and appearance of Elijah
4 The return
of the Jews to
Before we ends the Orthodox Jews description of the Messiah we have to mention that there is a opinion of many Jews of ,2 Messiahs who will come. Messiah ben Joseph who will come from the tribe of Joseph and be a forerunner of the other, Messiah ben David from the tribe of David.They are supporting this statement of the Bible verses as follows.
And saviours shall come up on
The task of the Messiah ben Joseph will be to fight the great wars against Jordan ,who is spoken several times of in the O.T Prophets ,and also against the evil Rom who have done much evil against the Jews in their 2000 last years of history. He will win a superior victory in these wars, and when its done, the road will lay open for his friend Messiah ben David. I will once quote from the book of Chaim Shivili ,The Time of Salvation page 124: The help of glory, magnificence (Shechinas) will guarantee him a exceptional victory over his enemies both from the inside and outside. After the great victories the road will lay open for his friend Messiah ben David who shall not participate in active service, since all the enemies have been conquered ,and pulled up whit the root and subjugated.
There is several things to object against the Orthodox view of the Messiah, but itís much better than the liberal view. What concern the Orthodox view of the Messiah it is built on the O.T., Talmud and Midrasch( The scriptures after the Time of the Bible)and the Orthodox Jews cannot effort to see that Jesus is their Messiah before they recognize the New Testament as equal whit the Old Testament. This will happens in the end of the tribulation period which will come over the hole earth. Then they will discover ,what is been hidden from them in all these years that their Messiah came to them for 2000 years ago, but they cud not see Him because their picture of the Messiah was wrong ,and because they waited for a outwards Messiah Kingdom and not a Messiah Kingdom who was based on inner spiritual values.
For me personally I have no problem to see that Jesus is the Messiah of the Jews, and that He has been done equal to God because He is in the one and the same Person, united both the reconciliation side and the Royal dignity side. When he effort the first task in such a excellent and great way namely to reconcile all the sins of the world. Because of this, He will have no problem to rule the hole world in the time of the Kingdom. The first task was the most difficult one. The second task has its basis in the first work of reconciliation and it will be natural succeeded of this.
10:1 For the law having a shadow of good things to come, [and] not the very
image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by
year continually make the comers thereunto perfect.
Hebrews 10:2 For then would they not have ceased to be offered? because that the worshippers once purged should have had no more conscience of sins.
Hebrews 10:3 But in those [sacrifices there is] a remembrance again [made] of sins every year.Hebrews 10:4 For [it is] not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins.
Hebrews 10:5 Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me:
Hebrews 10:6 In burnt offerings and [sacrifices] for sin thou hast had no pleasure.
Hebrews 10:7 Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God.
Hebrews 10:8 Above when he said, Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and [offering] for sin thou wouldest not, neither hadst pleasure [therein]; which are offered by the law;
10:9 Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first,
that he may establish the second.
Hebrews By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once [for all].
Hebrews 10:11 And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins:
Hebrews 10:12 But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God;
Hebrews From henceforth
expecting till his enemies be made his footstool.
Hebrews For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.
Hebrews [Whereof] the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before,
Hebrews This [is] the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them;
And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.
Hebrews Now where remission of these [is, there is] no more offering for sin.
Hebrews 10:19 Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus,
Hebrews 10:20 By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh;
Hebrews 10:21 And [having] an high priest over the house of God;
10:22 Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our
hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure
Hebrews Let us hold fast the profession of [our] faith without wavering; (for he [is] faithful that promised;)

This is a interpretation of disbelief and confusion (exegeses)this interpretation does not correspond whit the actual conditions.The Prophesies in the (O.T.) shall be understood as they are written and shall not be re-interpret or evade from the word in Bible.The theologies and many of the preachers should be re-educated of this issue.They have to come in to the accordance of the Prophetic word of God.The way I see it," that there must be something wrong whit the teaching and textbooks and lecturers on o'er universities and mission schools and many of the Bible schools.It is of great damage both to the schools and the students and the believing ordinary people, to not have a correct understanding of the condition between Israel on one side and the Christian community on the other side.They who cant see their distinctiveness can not see what God have promise the Jews and Israel.
In the reading of the word of God we have to divide between what God have said and promise the Jews one the one side, and what God have said and promise the Christian community one the other side. We cannot say that the Christian Community or the church have overtaken the promises to the Jews, and that the Jews have to go the road to the Christian Church to be saved and to get a part in their one promesis.This is not the road to go. THIS IS THE ROAD OF UNTRUE AND CONFUSION and it will lead to a incorrect preaching of the word of God in the worst case to apostasy and loss for the Preacher and the Listeners. If we shall understand this we have to see what the Bible tells us and not care of what the theologies and the (exegeses= interpretation) says. If we shall understand this we have to see what the Bible says about these things and not care of what the theologians and the (exegeses= interpretation) say, but we have to know what is written in the Bible. Many believers today don't know what is written in the Bible therefore they are a easy prey for Preachers and speakers. They who don't know about the contents of the Bible," they will not know of the promises to the Jews /,-and to their one communities, they are a easy prey for a false doctrine and replacement theology.
We have to be as the
first Christians when the apostle Paul had preached the word of God, they went
home and study the scriptures (the O.T.) if it was in coordination whit the
scripture (acts 17,11)This is the right attitude for they who wish to know more
about the plans of God both whit the Jews and the Christian Community. (more of this in my

All strange religion and idolatry will be taken away in the Kingdom. There is no other God than the God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob The other gods is evil spiritual forces which the humans worship.

Is now King over The Hole World from Zion ,and because most of the humans have convert and believe in God and because of this reason ,the curse which has been over the hole creation is taken away.Humanety and the animals are living in mutual harmony and nature is come into the Sabbath,(rest) the Millennium Kingdom, of peace and harmony and the shortness of food and starvation is taken away. The period of the M.Kingdom is in total contrast to the Ages from the fall of sin, To the Kingdom , the problems we have today whit pollution, and shortness of, food and ,health are gone THE TIME OF THE MILLENNIUM KINGDOM IS A TIME OF REST AND PEACE AFTER MANY YEARS OF WARS AND UNPEACE AND UNREST.
Then the time have come for God (His time The Sabbath, the full meaning of creation what He wanted it should have been from the beginning) God will let his blessing flow over the Earth. The time when The Almighty God speaks to his creation in the garden of Eden.(Face to face) This time have the Prophets in the O.T. seen and explained in many ways and many times. Itís the time for restoration and re-establishment and reparation. Itís this period who leads to the New Eart.Its the time period where total justice Rules.

Ezekiel 34:26 And I will make them and the places round about my hill a blessing; and I will cause the shower to come down in his season; there shall be showers of blessing.Ezekiel 34:27 And the tree of the field shall yield her fruit, and the earth shall yield her increase, and they shall be safe in their land, and shall know that I [am] the LORD, when I have broken the bands of their yoke, and delivered them out of the hand of those that served themselves of them.
Ezekiel 34:28 And they shall no more be a prey to the heathen, neither shall the beast of the land devour them; but they shall dwell safely, and none shall make [them] afraid.
Already at the time of Jacob he saw this time period which will come ,when he blessed his 12 sons (Israel) whit this overwhelming material and spiretual blessing .When He blessed his sons he described the 1000 yearly Kingdom whit its blessing before He dies.
Genesis 49:11 Binding his foal unto the vine, and his ass's colt unto the choice vine; he washed his garments in wine, and his clothes in the blood of grapes:Genesis 49:12 His eyes [shall be] red with wine, and his teeth white with milk.------Genesis 49:20 Out of Asher his bread [shall be] fat, and he shall yield royal dainties.-----Genesis 49:22 Joseph [is] a fruitful bough, [even] a fruitful bough by a well; [whose] branches run over the wall:-----Genesis 49:25 [Even] by the God of thy father, who shall help thee; and by the Almighty, who shall bless thee with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that lieth under, blessings of the breasts, and of the womb:Genesis 49:26 The blessings of thy father have prevailed above the blessings of my progenitors unto the utmost bound of the everlasting hills: they shall be on the head of Joseph, and on the crown of the head of him that was separate from his brethren.
Right before his death ,Moses blessed the 12 tribes of Israel, this blessing is far(exceeded) over the blessing they experience when they conquered the land for the first time. This blessing will therefore have its final fulfilment in the time of the Kingdom. Because itís so rich of blessings ,I will quote the whole prophesy.

the thousands of Manasseh.

30:23 Then shall he give the rain of thy seed, that thou shalt sow(The Jews) the ground withal; and
bread of the increase of the earth, and it shall be fat and plenteous: in that

the young asses that ear the ground shall eat clean provender, which hath been
winnowed with the shovel and with the fan.
Isaiah 30:25 And there shall be upon every high mountain, and upon every high hill, rivers [and] streams of waters in the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall.
Off all this words we can see that the restoration of the creation has begun. What Satan and sin has teared down in all these years from the fall of sin in the garden of Eden, will be restored and re-establish in the M-Kingdom. The main reason for this is that the humans believe in God and seek to Jesus in Jerusalem. We understand of this that Salvation means not only ,spirit soul and body, because this is the most important and essential first step in Salvation, but Salvation means also restoration off all, what the sin has destroyed. This concern both the condition between the Nations, between the humans, between the humans and the animals between the humans/ and the animals and creation. THE MILLENNIUM KINGDOM IS THE AIM POINT ,TO RESTORE ALL OF WHAT HAS BEFORE GONE TO PIECES.
The sin is not totally taken away in the Kingdom but it is limited ,and kept in check. It will not be allowed to develop itself ,as in our time ,there will be set strict limits for it in the Kingdom. It will not have the opportunity to develop as it has today, it will only be present in the individual and hidden. The sin will be forced op in a corner and isolated in the Kingdom. Today we see the opposite is happens in the society, claims from individuals and groups is enforce the state to accept and twist the law and legislative power, to the acceptance of sin, this is the fruit of apostasy in the society today. And it will be worse and more evident as we approaching the day of the rapture and after this the avalanche of sin in the tribulation, when the world is given over (abandon) to Satan in 7 years.
THE 1000 YEARLY KINGDOM IS THE SABBATH DAY ON EARTH
The 7 day was the day of rest, God rests on the 7 day after his act of creation. This will also happened whit the world and creation in the Kingdom.
Hebrews 4:1 Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left [us] of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it. Hebrews 4:9 There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.
God works whit a time schedule of 7 days ,/ 1000 Years,= 7000 Years the 7 Ages. God have given mankind 6 days to find him 6000 years 6 days of work to find Him this is the main purpose whit life. In the last day ,the last 1000 years ,is the time of rest for the hole creation. NJOYS THE REST AND THE EDTHERE IS SILENT AND STILLNESS OVER THE HOLE WORLD AFTER THE HEAVY YEARS OF LABOR. THE CREATION RELAX AND EUCATION OF GOD.
So simple is the time schedule of God.
1) From the creation and to Abraham is there 2000 years. I will in this connection ask permission to quotekes from Dr.Arnold Toynbee who says:" In fact was the year 4004 BC a wary crucial date, even if our ancestors didn't know about it. It mark namely the first turn up of examples of human communities which we can call civilization. This first form of civilization was for CA 6000 years ago .(Translated from Norwegian)
2) From Abraham to Jesus there is 2000 years.
3) From Jesus and until now ,there is gone 2000 years.
4) This is 6000 years,- the last millennium is the time of the Kingdom, and the main proof ,is that God is leading the Jews back to Erezt Israel and are victories over their enemies, the last 6000 years is the time of the humans, the last 1000 years is the time of the Lord ,The Day of the Lord.
I will in this occasion, be allowed to quote from Samuel Schor, who say about the 7000 years. In his book The Jews and Jesus page 66-68.
It's beyond me," how many of the readers ,thought under the study of the last chapter of the Millennium Kingdoms glory ;"that this sinful and blood stain earth, will ever be cleansed after six thousand years of guilt and violation ,and be restored it to its origin glory --and more--to do that ,will take a divine miracle. Just as great as the creation. It was this the Prophet Isaiah saw when he prophesied
Isaiah 65:17 For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.
Peter-2 3:13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
All of this is coming for the community of God
How long will the government of Christ last? The 20 chapter of Revelation gives us the answer. We read that Satan shall be tied up (verse 1,2) which means that he shall lose his power, to tempt the humans. We also read that he shall be tied up for a 1000 years. Some is pointing on in this case on the bible verse (2 Peter 3,8)
Peter-2 3:8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day [is] with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
Or the seventy year week of Daniel and claims that ,it is a question about a wary long period of time. But others remained us of many places the word of God distinguish itself whit a literal meaning. The Lord predicted the length of bondage in Egypt exact, this is also true of the captivity in Babylon
25:11 And this whole land shall be a desolation, [and] an astonishment; and
these nations shall serve the king of Babylon seventy years.
Jeremiah 25:12 And it shall come to pass, when seventy years are accomplished, [that] I will punish the king of Babylon, and that nation, saith the LORD, for their iniquity, and the land of the Chaldeans, and will make it perpetual desolations.
Both the Prophesies was literal fulfilled. Under these condition it shod not be difficult to know if we shall take the thousand years in Revelation 20. in figurative or in literal meaning.
There have also been a number of discussion among those who mean that the millennium, or the thousand yearly Kingdom begins whit the Christian time era, or on a later time point ,for instance ,the victory of Christianity over the Roman Empire, and now we are living under the thousand yearly government of Christ. Such strange things and thoughts have to be leaved to its destiny, if we are thinking of all the wars and destruction who have been over the World ,in the time of Christianity. Indeed it is not easy to see this" Kingdom of pace ĒThe Lord didn't come (in this age) to send pace, but to send sword (Mattew 10,34)
No reader of the Revelation 20,1-8 cant avoid to notice to which circumstance the expression "thousand years Ēappears not less than six times in seven verses. This fact particular if we look at it in accordance whit the textual context seems to demand a literal interpretation. Besides there is in accordance with old Jewish learned a tradition in the connection whit the six days of creation. These Jewish learned, who was not under the influence of the destructive Bible criticism, believed that the world would last in 7000 years divided in periods of 2000 years, and at last ,a period of a 1000 years. The first 2000 years was the time whit out the Law, the next age(2000 years) was the time of the Law, and the last 2000 years was the time of the days of the Messiah, but the fourth period on 1000 years is the day of rest, or the great World Sabbath. I am therefore of the opinion that the government of Christ on earth is a definitely delimitation in a 1000 years of time. THIS WILL BE THE GOLDEN AGE ON THE EARTH. In materiel and in every way the earth will be as rich as the garden of Eden , in the spiritual will the highest wish of the humans, will be, To Serve God.
And it will be a time of perfect pace and happiness.
I will also quote from the book of Ludvik Hope (In these last days) page 96,97 and 98
(This quotation is written in a old Norwegian dialect; language which is impossible to translate for me correct to show the colors of the language.)
The word of God show us another day of rest which a great part of humanity will experience, whit out go through death. There shall come a time her on earth before this age has ended , a day of rest after many long days of struggle and strife ( both physical and spiritual Warfare)As the Kingdom of pace of Solomon after all the wars of David, there shall come after a long and hard time of strife and wars, there shall be a blessed time of peace and rest.
Then the lion will lay down whit the lamb and eat grass in the same place. Then shall all the uniforms be burned, and the weapons shall be transforming to plough shares and pace and rest shall cover the earth as the water is covering the bottom of the sea. It is this day of rest and pace, our tired, and scared generation are looking forward to, whit greater yearning than before in time, and we believe in reason( of the time) that itís not fare away. This time is named The Millennium Kingdom. About this I will not comment it further.
For some years ago there was a weary tired working man who walked in the streets of Oslo, he stops outside a bookstore and looks at the books through the window ,than the man suddenly begins to cry, then he torn himself away from the picture, and what he have seen and he dryad away a tear from his eyes. What have moved him so much? In the bookstore there was the well knowing picture from the Bible of the lion and the lamb and calf and a child whit a palm branch in his one hand and the other was around the neck of the lion. This picture told about the peace and rest which will come in the future. The tired man who dryad away a tear was yearning for this time of rest and pace. Between all the words of God there is one who is difficult to understand the deeps of. Romans 8,22-23.
For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together
Romans 8:23 And not only [they], but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, [to wit], the redemption of our body.
From a poem or a song
I know for a while that the word is coming
of rest ,after the day of strife
then the time of the winter is over
for the eternal and joyful summertime
then the flower bud is fully blown
and the rose is blooming in our God
then it have burst its prison.
Through the hole Bible there is a mysterious, 6 number and a ,7 number who surely carries in itself a divine aim of our age. In six days God created the haven and the earth, and He rested on the seventh day. In six days should the people of Israel labour but on the seventh day they should rest. In six years they should harvest the land, but on the seventh year should the land and the people and the cattle rest. 7 multiply whit 7 comes the Jubilee Year when every slave was turn loose from his slavery, and they who of one reason or another had to sell their land or their property, should have it back without conditions.
The( 50) fiftieth year should be kept holy, and there was called out freedom for all of them who lived in the land. The year of the Jubilee begins at the Day Of Atonement. On that day the sound of the trumpet was echoing through the Country of Israel . On that day was the offering lamb laid on the alter and the blood was sprinkled on the the top of the Ark of the Covenant (the cover lid ,the grace chair)Then the people was called out from bondage and to freedom.
It was this arrangement in the old Israel we Christians have meant ,that this time is pointing forward to the end of labour and strife for all (Both Jews and Gentiles) and the strife and struggling and labour time is 6000 years, "the 7 year thousand is the Millennium Kingdom.(or the 1000 years Kingdom)
There is a great reason to believe that this is a Divine Arrangement, and that we have right to wait for this Kingdom of pace, whit its Holy Day of Rest. The sixth number is the number of the beast and the number of this world :666, / but the seventh number is the number of God.
I have said it before but I will repeat this once again.
OUR TIRED GENERATION IS RIPEN FOR THIS LIGHT TIME
MOST IT COME SOON
Professor Carl Fredrik WislÝff says as followings about the Millennium kingdom in his book : The selection in Christ page 85-88.
I will be so bold as to say something about the Millennium Kingdom. We don't hear much of this today, as before .In my youth it was different, Bible lessons and Bible lectures about the last things was often in front in the Churches and in the Chapels. Let us read what is written in Revelation chapter 20
20:1 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless
pit and a great chain in his hand.
Revelation 20:2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,
Revelation 20:3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.Revelation 20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and [I saw] the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received [his] mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years
This is the way it is written , remarkable words it is, and not surprisingly have these words been put into many interpretation , through the diffrent times. The first Christians took these words as a reality in their time, and they waited for the coming of the age of pace ,to replace their time which was evil and oppressing. The first Christians were a persecuted little flock, and saw the words of John as a futurity hop of liberation from this world. But after a while Christianity conquered the Roman Empire, the Emperor was baptized. It look like the Christians was victories. After a while they came to see differently on the Millennium Kingdom. Augustine came whit a interpretation who was dominant for a long time. The 1000 years is a symbolic expression for the age of the Church on earth: the resurrection of the death ,(they who came to life -and they lived )" was they who was baptized in faith and taken in to the Church. We will not go further into this statement.
I will confess that I believed a time that the statement of Augustin was the right one. But when I read the book of Augustins of the (city- capital of God?) and read the Revelation chapter 20 once again and read his interpretation of Revelation chapter 20, and then I read once again Rev chapter 20 , I cud not longer belive on the interpretation of Augustin. It is quite clear that the words (and they lived) in coordination whit the (Greek) main text is telling us about a one time event. Something which will happens - Shall Happens - in a certain time. Its not possible to interpret (and they lived) embody" -to be something which happens (spiritualize) in the time of the history of the Church age .THE WORDS SPEAKS ABOUT A MILLENNIUM KINGDOM WHO SHALL COME. But how shall we understand the word Millennium Kingdom? Before I will come into my interpretation of this question, I will say as follows: I have promise my shelf, that I will not fall out whit any Christian human being of something who have to do, whit the last things. Let me use a picture,I think about a Norwegian farmer who have five sons who have left for America, where they no are livening and have establish themselves. Then the old man writes and ask them to take a trip home. I have built up the houses he says, come on home and have a look what I have done. On the way home the men is sitting whit their fathers letter between them. I think he have done it like this says the one because it is written her. What do you mean ,says the other read this particular line this sentence means something else. Let us not argue said the third, because we are soon home ,and then we will see.
The last things is not of the bacis of salvation( The salvations truth ,the redemption in Christ) we have to tolerate diffrent views about this issue. But lets us talk about it on the way home,we are soon home ,and then we will see what happens.
There shall come a time when God ends the power of Satan in this world, and there will be a remarkable time of mission on the earth. Before this event the Lord have gathering his harvest, his death and living believers into Haven 1Thessalonians- 4,15 and forwards.
Because of these tremendous event someone will understand and convert and preach the Gospel
I think this will be the place where we will find Israel in the mission history ? I believe it and this understanding is old in the history of the Church. The Apostle Paul tell us about a secret (Greek Mysterion) It means something we would not think about or imagine.
11:25 For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery,
lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened
to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.
Romans 11:26 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:
When the total number of the Gentiles have come in, than the hole of Israel shall be saved. This means that awry Jew will be saved .But for the time being most of the people of Israel refuse the Lord Jesus as the Messiah, there shall come a time when the majority of the people turns to Jesus their Messiah, through their fall salvation [is come] unto the Gentiles, most of the people of Israel turned away from the Lord Jesus, then the word went to the gentiles , do it say ,also to o'er people. But one day it shall be different, Romans 11:15 For if the casting away of them [be] the reconciling of the world, what [shall] the receiving [of them be]( Akta translation -Their completion of numbers,) but life from the dead?
In the time we call the Millennium Kingdom there shall be a great time of Harvest. And the Old Covenant People of God shall be a Witness for every Nation, the greatest time of mission of the history of the Earth.
I think about what a German teacher told me once, its remarkable when a Jew who lives in the faith of the Old Testament, when he come to the believe in Jesus as savoir and Messiah he see every things in the Bible quite clear, and we don't need to send him to a bible school - that's quite an exaggeration. But there is something to it when he said.
The Old Covenant People of God as spokesman for the Gospel of Yeshua ,Jesus, O what a wonderful and rich time it will be.
Professor: Carl Fredrik WislÝff
All the 6 ages in pointing forwards to the Millennium Kingdom and the new Earth, and they will have its fulfilment in that age, we shall shortly ,look in to this.
1) In the M.Kingdom shall the humans live in confidence whit their Creator just like it was in the garden of Eden ,in the age of innocence. They shall both see and speak whit Jesus, where he sits on the throne of Glory in the Temple in Jerusalem.
2)In the M.Kingdom shall the humans live for the Lord and obey his conscience ( the voice of the Lord in their hart) this was the salvation principle in the second age. In that age it went wrong but in the Kingdom it shall go much better.
3)In the M.Kingdom shall believing humans participate of ruling the world on behalf of God. This was the task they were given in the third age who went wary wrong and ended whit the great flood. This time of the M-Kingdom will this be accomplished because Satan is imprisoned in the abyss.
4)In the M.Kingdom shall all the promises to the Jews be fulfilled both the unconditional and the conditional. The promises to the Jews is evident (coming forwards) in the Covenant whit Abraham (Genesis 17,1-14) The Sinai Covenant (Exodus 20, 1-17), The land Covenant (Deuteronomy 28:1 )The Covenant whit David of a eternal Kingdom (2 Samuel- 7, 16), And the new Covenant in the blood of Christ (Jeremiah 31:31-34 ) and Matthew 26,28.
5)In the M.Kingdom shall the Law be introduced again and the believing Jews shall be a Holy People and Priests in the world . It was this task they received whit the entering into the Sinai Covenant but the condition was that they converted. In connection whit the great tribulation they are willingly to convert as People and rest, and then the condition are at place, that the Lord can fulfil His great plan whit the Jews.
In the M.Kingdom will the Law as it come to the expression in the sermon on the mount, "and the work of Grace who works together, as it have always worked together in all the salvation ages. We mean the Law as the commandments of God. The Grace of God have always been there (about this there is much of interest to write about but we have not the opportunity to do this now )
6)In the M.Kingdom will also the Christian community have a position and Glory which it was intended for by God. Today the world don't see this but in the Kingdom they shall shine like the stars, eternal and forever and exercise our position whit great power as parts of the body of Christ. But we will not speak about this because its not revealed in its fullness.
John-1 3:2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
Today we are living in the last part of the age of the Christian Community, Jesus can come at any time in the lover parts of the sky whit Ark Angels voice whit the trumpet of God ,(1Thessalonians- 4,16) and take us whit him to Heaven. The signs of this time age, the coming of Christ for the Christian community is wary near, and greatest of them is the sign of the fig tree. The fig tree is a picture of the Jews national re-establishment of the state of Israel.
Matthew 24:32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer( the Millennium Kingdom) [is] nigh:
THE SABBATH DAY
The Millennium Kingdom as a great part of the Kingdom of God has been denied of many theologians and preachers in 1700 years and it is still denied today , when we are standing on the threshold to this Kingdom. The Lord shall judge the replacement theology, this book is a counterweight to the replacement theology.
The world is approaching the Great Tribulation, but of the ruins of this world shall The Kingdom for Israel come forwards (true), and rule the world from Jerusalem, as a link of the plans of God, of the Kingdom of God on Earth. It is the Lord who have decided this ,and no one can stop his plan whit trying to sow doubt about the plans of God. If itís coming from the humans or from Satan.
The Lord is not late whit his promises, therefore we prey.
YOUR KINGDOM COME THEY WILL BE DONE IN HAVEN AND ON EARTH.
It is our hope that as many as possible will be saved in the last evening hour of this time Age and that continually more of the believers sees the plan of God whit the Jews, and have courage to preach this message. The time of the night is at the end and the day of the Lord is coming the thousand yearly Kingdom is at dawn.
5:1 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write
Thessalonians-1 5:2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.(for the unbelievers)Thessalonians-1 5:3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
Thessalonians-1 5:4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.Thessalonians-1 5:5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, norof darkness.Thessalonians-1 5:6 Therefore let us not sleep, as [do] others; but let us watch and be sober.
And at the end we will join to the rejoice of Jesus of the 24 oldest in haven,which will come in connection whit the great tribulation.
11:15 And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven,
saying, The kingdoms of this world are become [the kingdoms] of our Lord, and
of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.Revelation 11:16 And the
four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their
faces, and worshipped God,
Revelation 11:17 Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned.
The universal prayer of the believers through the history ,come soon Lord Jesus, come soon.
Revelation 22:20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. ,men. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
Jesus Christ from
The Messiah of the Jews to establish the Kingdom of God in Israel.
Revelation 22:21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ [be] with you all. Amen.
Oskar Edin Indergaard.
Only the Jewish People Can Open the Kingdom for ISRAEL
11:11I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, for to provoke them to jealousy.
11:12 Now if the fall of them be the riches of the world, and the diminishing of them the riches of the Gentiles; how much more their fulness?
THE KEY POPLE
For I tell you, you will not see me again until you say, ĎBlessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.íĒ
I will remark that the books is translated amateur straight from Norwegian, and there is error, both in spelling and the meaning of the sentence. But I hope I have got the important of the subject .
