Jeremiah

Chapter 4

"Warnings, Threatenings, Alarm; Call to Repentance."

This Bible Study is written by Roger Christopherson, and it's transcription/ location is provided by http://www.theseason.org

Jeremiah Chapter four gives us a vast amount of knowledge, information, wisdom, and history. It will tell us in this chapter what happened in the world that was. In other words, with this restoration being promised, He lets us know what will come upon us. He said, "I will utterly destroy you, and if you don't think I will, look back to the first time I did it."

You don't have to look very far to see the results of the last world age destruction. When you go to the tundra of Alaska, and you find dinosaur remains with vegetation stil frozen in their jaws, then you know that there was an sudden freeze by a catastrophic shaking of this earth. This evidence is also found in Russia and many other of the north countries. This shows us that this earth was fertile from the pole to pole. There was no ice cap.

This chapter tells us how these conditions came to pass.

Jeremiah 4:1 "If thou wilt return, O Israel, saith the LORD, return unto me: and if thou wilt put away thine abominations out of my sight, then shalt thou not remove."

Both Judah and Israel had sunk deep into idolatry, yet God is telling them that He will take them back. He is telling them to put those abominations out of His sight, and He will take care of them. You don't need any other traditions, belief or religion to make you safe, God is saying, I can take care of you, with out removing you.

Jeremiah 4:2 "And thou shalt swear, The LORD liveth, in truth, in judgment, and in righteousness; and the nations shall bless themselves in him, and in him shall they glory."

You are going to testify that God liveth, and you will testify also to the Covenant that God made with Abraham, that being that through the seed of Abraham, all nations will be blessed. God wants to bless, but He will not bless those that refuse to study His Word, and apply His instructions to their lives. If you choose, on your own part, to reject God's Word, and the laws and instructions He gave, don't expect God to bless you.

Jeremiah 4:3 "For thus saith the LORD to the men of Judah and Jerusalem, Break up your fallow ground, and sow not among thorns.

This is a term farmers would understand. You don't go out and throw your seed in unbroken ground, or sow it amongs the thorns and weeds, the seed just won't root. You have to get the ground fit for cultivation. This analogy is applied to the instructions that God gave in verse two. Before you can testify that God liveth, and to the laws and covenant to the nations, you have to prepare the minds of those nations to receive that testimony. Thorns are always symbolic of the choking of Satan.

Jeremiah 4:4 "Circumcise yourselves to the LORD, and take away the foreskins of your heart, ye men of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem: lest my fury come forth like fire, and burn that none can quench it, because of the evil of your doings."

This is not talking about flesh, but spiritually of your heart. This applies to both men and women are to be circumcised in heart, which is better translated mind. God was not happy with His children in Jeremiah's day, nor is He happy with His children in our generation. People today, even those calling themselves Christian, have sunk to a new low, even compared to the days of Sodom. It is a disgrace.

The blame starts with the pastors that have not taught the truth, and taught parents how to discipline their children. There is no discipline in most churches in correcting the very members, and giving them discipline. There is no instruction in the feeding of the sheep in preparing them to exist and live in this earth age, and still have happiness, rather then giving them only milk of the Word. It is time to wake up and prepare for the deception that is coming upon the whole world, before it is too late.

Jeremiah 4:5 "Declare ye in Judah, and publish in Jerusalem; and say, Blow ye the trumpet in the land: cry, gather together, and say, Assemble yourselves, and let us go into the defenced cities."

God is telling us to gather together those with like minds, with the Word of God. Don't let the next verse slip by you.

Jeremiah 4:6 "Set up the standard toward Zion: retire, stay not: for I will bring evil from the north, and a great destruction."

Christ is the standard, and He is our symbol. Regroup [retire] and prepare for the great apostacy that is coming upon us, no one can escape it, except by the truth of God's Word. Are you wise enough to understand this verse? You are not going to fly away like a bird from the apostacy, it is not written in His Word. But you don't have to remove yourself, all you have to do is have the gospel armor on, and in place. God is only angry at His enemies, not those that He loves.

He will protect you, just as He protected those three Hebrew children in Daniel 3:12-22, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego in the fiery furnace. This is symbolic of His all consuming fire, God can protect you wherever you are just as He did them in that supernatural event. You don't have anything to be afraid of.

To raise up your standard means for you to make a difference wherever you are. Give somebody some hope, and support those where it is needed. Group together with those of like mind, and say, enough is enough, and protect each other. Soon others will join you, until it has become a community effort. Make a difference.

Jeremiah 4:7 "The lion is come up from his thicket, and the destroyer of the Gentiles is on his way; he is gone forth from his place to make thy land desolate; and thy cities shall be laid waste, without an inhabitant."

The "lion" of course is the king of Babylon. He is the destroyer of the nations [Gentiles] this is referring to Satan, as this is one of his names. He is coming and when he arrives with all his supernatual powers, and he will lay waste all the cities, with out a true believer. Why? Because he will deceive all those that allow themselves to be deceived.

"Make thy land desolate" is what Mark 13:14 is in reference to. It is also a quote from Daniel 9:27, and a warning to us today. "But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judea flee to the mountains:" Mark 13:14

The desolator is the one spoken of here, and he is the one that makes the land desolate. He causes that event to come to pass as the seven things that are named in Mark 13, which are also the seven trumpets of Revelation, which will transpire before the coming of Jesus Christ the true Messiah. The king of Babylon, or confusion, is coming first. He is Satan the "instead of Christ" [the Antichrist] and he will be the cause of the first of two tribulations written of in Mark 13.

Jeremiah 4:8 "For this gird you with sackcloth, lament and howl: for the fierce anger of the LORD is not turned back from us."

God is promising that it shall happen exactly as it is written. Remember that when Jeremiah was prophesying, there were many false prophets that were there saying, It is not going to happen. You're not going into captivity. There will be peace, and everything will be all right. This is just like those today that lie and say; "You don't need to seek out and study the book of Revelation, you will be absent at that time". "You are going to escape and fly away leaving others behind." This is false information, and this is a doctrine leading you straight to spiritual death.

God is saying here that He is angry at those false prophets, and it will happen exactly as it is written. The question here then is, are you Biblically illiterate? Or do you know what is written? God is unhappy that people will not listen to His Word. He is telling those that do understand to put on the sackcloth and get ready for what is going to happen.

Jeremiah 4:9 "And it shall come to pass at that day, saith the LORD, that the heart of the king shall perish, and the heart of the princes; and the priests shall be astonished, and the prophets shall wonder."

Just as they wondered in Jeremiah's day, the leaders of the church systems, the preachers and leaders of the community will also wonder where they went wrong. The signs were all there and they just misunderstood the signs. They staked their entire lives, and souls on their false teachers doctrines, and counted on their flying away before the desolate things came to pass. Friend, it is their false teaching, and false prophets that will cause their astonishment and captivity by the desolator Satan.

When teachings and instruction is contrary to the Word of God, they are a lie. If you chose to believe a lie, and turn away from the Word given by God, you deserve to be astonished.

Jeremiah 4:10 "Then said I, Ah, Lord GOD! surely thou hast greatly deceived this people and Jerusalem, saying, Ye shall have peace; whereas the sword reacheth unto the soul."

This is Jeremiah speaking now. You are supposed to have your gospel armor on and in place, whereby Satan's sword, or words can not penetrate into your mind. The primary substance of the gospel armor is the Word of God. God's instruction keeps you in the knowledge and wisdom that keeps you mentally and spiritually prepared for whatever happens.

Jeremiah is saying here that God is deceiving the people, because He has allowed the false teachers to say that peace was coming, and we would be gone. Those false preachers even today sound off their false hope, and peace, peace, peace when there is nothing but spiritual destruction ahead, and a flood of deception that will soon cover the earth. Jeremiah is saying that God deceived the people, by His allowing the false teachers to spread their lies. Friend, God didn't say it, just like He didn't say you were going to fly away.

This is the very same thing happening again, in our very live time. It is not the flesh that is involved here, but souls. It is a spiritual destruction. The warfare is a spiritual battle, and the battlefield will be in your mind. The battle is fought with words and ideas, and the very Word of God, (not the guns and swords) of the flesh battlefield.

Ephesians 6:10 "Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might."

Ephesians 6:11 "Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil."

Ephesians 6:12 "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."

Ephesians 6:13 "Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand."

Friend, are you going to rely on the words of our Heavenly Father, or the traditions of man. Our armor is to check out teachings in the Word of God. If somebody is stupid, God will allow them to stay that way, if they choose to be that way.

Jeremiah 4:11 "At that time shall it be said to this people and to Jerusalem, A dry wind of the high places in the wilderness toward the daughter of my people, not to fan, nor to cleanse,"

This is the word that is being directed to both the people of both Jerusalem of Jeremiah's day, and those living in our generation. This is an agricultural expression. When the farmer would separate the wheat from the chaff, they would wait for a dry wind, and shake the wheat in the wind. The good wheat (kernel, often referred to as corn) would fall to the ground and the chaff (seed coverings or dry husks) would blow away in the wind.

God is telling Jeremiah that when the time comes, and in our generation that is very shortly, when the wheat is shaken in the wind, all will be blown away, the wheat and the chaff. The winds of darkness will be very strong and will blow away all truth, and the only truth left will be that which is in the minds of God's elect. It is the this dry wind, in the high places, which will unpredictabley hit, blowing against the souls of men and women, not to fan nor to cleanse, but to take you blindsided if you are not ready, and shod in truth to defend against it.

Don't be uninformed of the prophecies concerning the end times, go and take those prophecies from the Word of God.

Jeremiah 4:12 "Even a full wind from those places shall come unto me: now also will I give sentence against them."

God is telling you that it is He that will do the judgeing. God is angry at His people for not reading and watching for those signs that He has given that will come before the sudden destruction of the end times. We have the so-called prophets and priests that make their false claims today, just as Jeremiah faced before the sudden destruction that came from Babylon. These so-called prophets have muddied the water with their confusion so bad that a true person could not see the truth if they tried.

Jeremiah 4:13 "Behold, he shall come up as clouds, and his chariots shall be as a whirlwind: his horses are swifter than eagles. Woe unto us! for we are spoiled."

"He" is the enemy. When this comes upon us, we are deceived [spoiled]. This has a two-fold meaning. Meaning that the false messiah shall work mighty miracles in the sight of man, showing his supernatural powers that God has given to him. He will have his own supernatural army in the sight of man, and it will be like Ezekiel said, when he saw those chariots come down from the heavens. Remember those highly polished bronze vehicles?

The supernatural powers of the Antichrist, and his forces that come with him lets us know that this has to do with the last part of this earth age. That we are in the end times. The king of Bablyon of Jeremiah's day was only a type of what we shall see coming upon us very shortly. The King of Bablyon, Nebuchadnezzar of Jeremiah's day, was later converted towards our one true Heavenly Father and later wrote one of the most beautiful prayers, that was recorded in Daniel. Nebuchadnezzar was not this evil monster that is spoken of here. This is the enemy of the end times, Satan the false Christ. "Woe unto those that don't know any better", is what is said here.

Jeremiah 4:14 "O Jerusalem, wash thine heart from wickedness, that thou mayest be saved. How long shall thy vain thoughts lodge within thee?"

We wash our heart which is our minds in the blood of the Lamb. We do this by repenting and turning from our evil ways. God is asking, How long are you going to let that emptiness bounce around in your head, before you study to know the truth. God is giving us a type of how it will come to pass, whereby we can know exactly how it will happen in these end times.

It is like using a visual aid ahead of time, to prepare you for what is about to come. We use visual aids in advertising, and in the military, as well as in our schools. God is giving us a type of what will happen when we are in the field, at the arrival of the Satan and his army.

Jeremiah 4:15 ""For a voice declareth from Dan, and publisheth affliction from mount Ephraim."

Dan's location of land allotment was to the very north. When the enemy comes it will be from the very north. Don't fall asleep as you see this peace pact and that agreement, watch the north country. Mount Ephraim are the nations of the House of Israel, America included, and the "north country" is Russia of today. Keep an eye on Russia, for she shall arise very shortly.

Jeremiah 4:16 "Make ye mention to the nations; behold, publish against Jerusalem, that watchers come from a far country, and give out their voice against the cities of Judah."

We are to warn the nations, and blow the trumpet. The watchers are the ones whos names are given to the angels, and Michael, (as written in Revelation 12:7-9) is going to kick Satan and his angels out on this earth.

Revelation 12:7 "And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,"

Revelation 12:8 "And prevailed not, neither was their place found any more in heaven."

Revelation 12:9 "And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

This is why Paul said that a woman should keep her head covered, because of the angels. It is going to happen again. When Jesus was asked how it would be in the days of the end? He said that it would be just as it was in the days of Noah. Those fallen angels are going to be giving and taking in marriage.

Who were those angels giving and taking in marrage to as recorded in Genesis 6:1-8? The fallen angels, also called the Nephilim, were taking the daughters of men in marriage. Friend, the watchers are coming very shortly.

Jeremiah 4:17 "As keepers of a field, are they against her round about; because she hath been rebellious against me, saith the LORD."

Jesus was shown the great temple in all its splendor, and He told His disciples that in the end, at His return, it would all be turned to sand. It would be leveled and prepared for His millennium temple. This is in reference to the elimination of those that are rebellious against God.

Jeremiah 4:18 "Thy way and thy doings have procured these things unto thee; this is thy wickedness, because it is bitter, because it reacheth unto thine heart."

God is saying that you have brought this destruction on yourself, because you don't want to hear the truth. You won't study, but when you do, you take the word of a false prophet over My Word, you "have procured these things unto thee". Your wickedness are those things that you have allowed to reach into your very mind. You have allowed that deception and lies to come before My Word, and because you have procured [Strongs #6213 Asah, to do work, to accomplish, produce...] the destruction and bitterness to come into your life.

Jeremiah 4:19 "My bowels, my bowels! I am pained at my very heart; my heart maketh a noise in me; I cannot hold my peace, because thou hast heard, O my soul, the sound of the trumpet, the alarm of war."

This is better translated , "My heart, my heart", [Strongs #4578 Meah, "the place of emotions or distress and love..."] Jeremiah was pained for what was in his forehead, his mind. The seventh trumpet, the last trumpet is sounding the last war, and that war will be won by almighty God, and His elect. Some of you have a destiny and a purpose, and you hear the warnings sounding today. You see the deceptions that are coming upon us now. Some of us have known that there is more to God's Word then what we have been taught from our youth. It is time to listen and let our minds obsorb what is taking place around us.

God placed those deepers truths in His Word, and He expects His elect to place those truths into our minds.

Jeremiah 4:20 "Destruction upon destruction is cried; for the whole land is spoiled: suddenly are my tents spoiled, and my curtains in a moment."

The whole land is deceived. Friend, when that seventh trump sounds, how long do you think it is going to take for God to get the victory? It will take just a wink of the eye, a fraction of a second, and it is all over. God will move against His enemies, and not those that He loves. God can and will protect His servants wherever they are, even in a fiery furnace.

Jeremiah 4:21 "How long shall I see the standard, and hear the sound of the trumpet?"

God's elect will not leave the cross, we will sound the trumpet, and hold up the standard, which is to say the true Christ, as long as there is breath in our being. We will not run to that first false messiah, or be swayed by supernatural antics being performed by the instead of Christ. Friend, we will hold the standard of Christ's cross high, as long as there is blood running through our vains. We will stand in the ranks of the good christian soldiers, when the deceiver comes.

God is asking just how long it will be when the sight of the first messiah comes, the fake one, that all of you will run to be part of His bride. We know from Mark 13:20 that God will shorten the days, so that the elect will keep from following the Antichrist. "For except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect's sake, whom He hath chosen, He hath shortened the days."

We know that those days were shortened from three and one half years to five months from Revelation 9:5; "And it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man." Will any of God's elect fall to Satan's deception? No they will not, not one of them, because they are sealed in their foreheads, their minds know what is going to happen. They have studied the Word of God, and they know the events and signs of the end times, and they know Satan is coming with his supernatural powers first, before Christ enters at the sounding of the seventh and last trumpet.

Jeremiah 4:22 "For my people is foolish, they have not known me; they are sottish children, and they have none understanding: they are wise to do evil, but to do good they have no knowledge."

God is showing His disappointment in His people here. The work for "sottish" in the Hebrew means "stupid"[Strongs #5530, Cakal, "to play the fool.."]. He is disappointed in His people because of their foolishness, and stupidity in listening and being deceived. He is saying, if you don't think that I am going to bring destruction at the seventh trumpet of this earth age, you had better look back at the first Earth Age. Satan rebelled and I destroyed the entire earth age.

God is setting the stage here for what He did to end that first Earth Age. God is reminding us that His people have been foolish, and always listened to men, and their foolish traditions. They prefer not to listen to God's Word, but the foolish doctrines of men's traditions. Who do you listen to, man or God? The definition of one that has no knowledge, is stupid. There is only one place to gain the knowledge from God, and that is to study God's Word.

Jeremiah 4:23 "I beheld the earth, and, lo, it was without form, and void; and the heavens, and they had no light."

God is telling us here exactly what He did to the earth at one time. This was in the first earth age. The earth spoken of here, is the "erets" as given in the Hebrew text. In Strong's Hebrew dictionary # 776.

God is saying that He was so angry before, in that first earth age, that He totally destroyed everything. In the Hebrew, from Genesis 1:2, "tohu va bohu" which means, "without form and void" "And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters."

God said that He did not create the earth a waste land and void, it became that way when God shook it.

Jeremiah 4:24 "I beheld the mountains, and, lo, they trembled, and all the hills moved lightly."

Imagine all the hills and mountains around this earth moving in one massive earthquake.

Jeremiah 4:25 "I beheld, and, lo, there was no man, and all the birds of the heavens were fled."

There was no man, because He destroyed every being on the face of the earth. God destroyed all the birds, and creatures along with man. This is not talking about the flood of Noah, for with the flood of Noah, not only was eight Adamic souls saved but two souls from each race, as well as two of all the animals. Even the Kenites, the sons of Cain came through the flood.

Genesis 6:18 "But with thee will I establish my covenant; and thou shall come into the ark, thou and thy sons, and thy wife, and thy sons' wives with thee."

Genesis 6:19 "And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shalt thou bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee; they shall be male and female."

Genesis 6:20 "Of fowls after their kind, and of cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the earth after his kind, two of every sort shall come unto thee, to keep them alive."

When we look at the plates of the land masses of the earth, it is obvious that there has been a shaking that took place. When Satan fell in that first earth age, there was a flood and destruction that left nothing alive to survive into this earth age. When Noah's flood came God was careful to preserve all flesh, and to take two of every kind aboard the ark. Not only are the animals and birds flesh, but all the races were flesh also, including the Kenites, those sons of Cain.

Jeremiah 4:26 "I beheld, and lo, the fruitful place was a wilderness, and all the cities thereof were broken down at the presence of the Lord, and by His fierce anger."

God destroyed all their cities, as well as every man and beast of the field. Did you notice that there were ancient cities in that first earth age. The bible does not disagree that the overthrow took place, and that this earth is millions of years old. However most Bible teachers today say that this earth is only 6,000 years old. Remember what God called those people? Stupid! They can't read the manuscripts, and open their eyes to the evidence around them, and see the truths that God has spoken in His Word.

They like to argue a point in stupidity, and desire to stay away from II Peter 3, where Peter makes it clear that there are three earth ages. They can only understand what sits right before their eyes, and taught in their traditions. Friend, there are many sites scattered all around the earth where there is physical evidence of creatures that existed that are just not in existence today. If the earth is only six thousand years old, why do we have the skeleton remains of so many creatures that roamed the earth far before flesh man was created?

Have you never read the story of the "behemoth" in Job 40:15-19. It is the story of the dinosaurs that roamed the earth millions of years ago, that ate grass like the ox, and had the strength of a cedar tree in his tail. God made this earth to be inhabited, but Satan rebelled and God destroyed the planet.

So many say, why can't we find flesh remains of those men and women that existed then? We are living in the flesh age of man that is common only to this earth age. At the sounding of the seventh and last trumpet, at the coming of the Lord, all flesh will be changed then also, as Paul states in I Corinthians 15:51,-52. "Behold I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed," [51] "In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed." [52]

This time is not very far off when all flesh bodies will take on the form of their incorruptible bodies, and the elect of God will also take on their immortality into that incorruptible at that time also. All souls will be in their spiritual bodies then.

Jeremiah 4:27 "For thus hath the LORD said, The whole land shall be desolate; yet will I not make a full end."

God is saying that in the end, He will still have a remnant that He will protect. The earth will be rejuvinated at His coming, and it will be a perfect place. When we move into that third Earth Age, that being the Millennium Age and after, there will be no Satan to disrrupt the earth. Science and our Father's Word go together beautifully. It is the minds of some people that like to distort and use personal assumptions that makes it confusing. The Christian world likes to make the Scriptures fit their traditions, while some evolutionists like to build assumptions into their theories that likewise are just as foolish, especially in the sight of what we see around us.

The reason that it is important to sound the alarm, and speak boldly, is your soul depends upon it. In love was it given by God, to shake you and wake you up to what is written in His Word.

Jeremiah 4:28 "For this shall the earth mourn, and the heavens above be black: because I have spoken it, I have purposed it, and will not repent, neither will I turn back from it."

God is saying to be aware, and be prepared for what is coming. We see from Hebrews 12:26 and 27 that there is going to be another shaking going on. "Whose voice then shook the earth: but now He hath promised, saying, "Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven." [26] "And this word, "Yet once more," signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain." [27]

All those things that should be shaken will be removed, and those things that are based on Christ will not be moved. We are here to stay, there is no flying away to a faroff place. So God is telling us that He has purposed to do what is written, and He will surely do it.

Jeremiah 4:29 "The whole city shall flee for the noise of the horsemen and bowmen; they shall go into thickets, and climb up upon the rocks: every city shall be forsaken, and not a man dwell therein."

God's thought comes back now to the historical time of the approach of the king of Babylon. What happened in the time when Nebuchadnezzar came against Jerusalem, is a type of what it will be like when the king of Bablyon of the end times comes to this earth. This we spoke of this earlier in Revelation 12:7-9. That king of Bablyon of Revelations is Satan, in His role as the "instead of Christ", or the Antichrist. When we see his arrival, we are at the closing of this second Earth Age.

Never forget that the false messiah comes in peacefully, and prosperously and both politically and religiously. He is not coming as most people expect him to come, in gloom and doom, for this idea came about because that is the way that Nebuchadnezzar came into Jerusalem. They overlook the fact that the end times war is spiritual and not physical, and to win a spiritual battle, you deceive the mind, and trick it to accept something that is a lie. If you don't know what God's Word says about the coming of the false Christ, then you will be taken off guard.

Jeremiah 4:30 "And when thou art spoiled, what wilt thou do? Though thou clothest thyself with crimson, though thou deckest thee with ornaments of gold, though thou rentest thy face with painting, in vain shalt thou make thyself fair; thy lovers will despise thee, they will seek thy life."

"Spoiled" is "deceived. When you become deceived, what are you going to do? Though you put on your best clothes and put on your best jewelry, and paint up your face with the finest makeup, it is all in vain. You can think of this in the light of the great harlot of Revelation 17:4; she paints herself up real good, and decks herself out with her finest, then goes out to ride the one world system. This is the religious beast that are those that have not studied our Father's Word, who are deceived, or spoiled. And that spoilage takes place in every city where you have people that expect to fly out of here and escape the time of Antichrist. It is not going to happen. They will paint themselves up at that time for their lover, only it will be for the wrong Christ.

Jeremiah 4:31 "For I have heard a voice as of a woman in travail, and the anguish as of her that bringeth forth her first child, the voice of the daughter of Zion, that bewaileth herself, that spreadeth her hands, saying, Woe is me now! for my soul is wearied because of murderers."

A woman in travail, is a woman in childbirth. The voices and signs are getting closer and closer, as the daughters of Zion, those religious leaders prepare themselves and their flocks to meet their lover at his arrival. They are adorning themselves for the wrong wedding, because they cannot tell the difference between which husband they are looking for. They will all grow weary and fall at that time, because of the deception that they are not ready for.

murderers - Strongs #2026 harag, "a primitive root; to smite with deadly intent: KJV-- destroy, out of hand, kill, murder (-er), put to [death], make [slaughter], slay (-er), X surely.

We are coming to that time of the birth of a new age. We are talking about those people of the ten tribes that went north, and today call themselves Christians, because those people are suppose to know better. There is a reason for the things that are happening in this world today, and Christians that are suppose to know the signs, are completely confused. The deceptions are taking place, yet those that call themselves Christians continue to stake their souls on the traditions of men.

The murderers are those that will lead others to the Antichrist, and by doing this, are murderering their loved ones spiritual souls. They paint themselves up in order to turn their affection, and those around them to the false Christ. They are playing the harlot in innocence, for the false shepherds have taught them to do this. We are seeing the flirting with the destruction of souls that will walk into the lake of fire, because that is what they are flirting with.
