We have discussed the order of Amoc, which is rather systematic in its discourse, describing a prophecy which begins two years after the great earthquake, and when the habitation of the shepherds mourn and Karmel withers.
In modernity, can we associate this with the great quake in Japan on March 11, 2011? We have already pointed to the great fire on Mount Carmel in Israel, which occurred in December, 2010, which caused Israel (the habitation of the shepherds) to mourn the loss of 44 firefighters.
The order to follow is Syria – where the current civil war began in the Spring of 2011 (that is to say, after March 21, 2011) but which ramped up in 2013, followed by Gaza (the war against Hamas in 2013), which will be followed by the war against Tsor (Tyre) – an area of Lebanon occupied by Hezbollah, currently ramping up.
The order of the prophecies continues pointing to the punishment of Edom (the Arab world), the punishment of Amman and Moab (the nation of Jordan, whose king goes into exile), followed by the punishment of Yahudah, and finally Yisra’el.
To gain a more complete understanding of how these events unfold in our current discussion, consider that the modern nation of Israel is not Yisra’el for purposes of the revealing of prophecy, but rather is Yahudah (Judah, or Judea), as the second exodus of the house of Yisra’el has not occurred into the Holy Land. Rather, the repatriation of the house of Yahudah into the Holy Land is contemplated by scripture, and it is declared that the tents of Yahudah shall be first.
The nation of Yisra’el, however, is that nation that declares the word that comes out of Ya’akov and lands on Yisra’el as found in Yeshayahu 9:8-10. So, for the purposes of understanding these prophecies, the nation of Israel is the house of Yahudah, and the nation of the United States is the house of Yisra’el.
Let’s take a look at the words of Moshe concerning the punishment of Yisra’el to come, for it is worthy to consider his understanding.
Devariym (Deuteronomy) 32:7-8
Remember the days of old, consider the years of many? generations: ask your father, and he will show you; your elders, and they will tell you. 8 When EL ELYON divided to the nations their inheritance, when he separated the sons of Adam, he set the bounds of the people according to the number of the children of Yisra’el. 9 For YAHUAH’S portion is his people; Ya’akov is the lot of his inheritance. 10 He found him in a desert land, and in the waste howling wilderness; he led him about, he instructed him, he kept him as the apple of his eye.
Notwithstanding this place in the history of man, Moshe knows what will come of Yisra’el (the house of Ya’akov) once Yisra’el is living in comfort and ease. However, the text that appears in this passage does not make reference to Yisra’el, but instead makes reference to the plurality of the nation of Yisra’el, calling him Yasharon.
Devariym (Deuteronomy) 32:15-18
But Yasharon waxed fat, and kicked: you are waxen fat, you are grown thick, you are covered with fatness; then he forsook ELOAH which made him, and lightly esteemed the Rock (tsor) of his salvation (YAHUSHA). 16 They provoked him to jealousy with strange elohiym, with abominations provoked they him to anger. 17 They sacrificed unto devils, not to ELOAH?; to elohiym whom they knew not, to new elohiym that came newly up, whom your fathers feared not. 18 Of the Rock that begat you, you are unmindful, and have forgotten EL that formed you.
So we see that Ya’akov is Yisra’el, and that Yisra’el is Yasharon. So much of this has to do with the original pronunciation of the word we interpret as Yisra’el. As we have discussed before, the word was most likely Yashar’el – the straight or upright in EL. Yisra’el is construed to mean, on the other hand, he who wrestles with EL. Yashar’el is his name, and Yasharon is the house of Yashar’el. Consider this verse from Yesha’yahu.
Yesha’yahu (Isaiah) 44:1-2
Yet now hear, O Ya`aqov my servant; and Yisra’el, whom I have chosen: 2 Thus says YAHUAH that made you, and formed you from the womb, which will help you; Fear not, O Ya`aqov, my servant; and you, Yasharon, whom I have chosen.
Yisra’el and Yasharon are therefore synonymous.
Devariym (Deuteronomy) 32:19-22
And when YAHUAH saw it, he abhorred them, because of the provoking of his sons, and of his daughters. 20 And he said, I will hide my face from them, I will see what their end shall be: for they are a very froward generation, children in whom is no faith. 21 They have moved me to jealousy with that which is not EL; they have provoked me to anger with their vanities: and I will move them to jealousy with those which are not a people; I will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation. 22 For a fire is kindled in mine anger, and shall burn unto the lowest hell, and shall consume the earth with her increase, and set on fire the foundations of the mountains.
YAH comes to abhor Yasharon for a particular reason. It is because Yasharon becomes in the end times a very froward generation, and children in whom there is no faith. It would be worth our time to discover exactly the meaning of this word froward. In Hebrew it's the word tapukah, which means perversity or fraud, i.e., a perverse thing. The have become a very perverted generation and children in whom there is no faith.
The scripture has already told us what is meant by the word tapukah, telling us that Yasharon waxed fat, and kicked. From there, Yasharon went on to do the following:
- He forsook ELOAH which made him;
- He lightly esteemed the Rock (tsor) of his salvation (YAHUSHA);
- He provoked YAH to jealousy with strange elohiym;
- He provoked YAH to anger with abominations;
- He sacrificed unto devils, not to ELOAH?;
- He sacrificed to elohiym he did not know, to new elohiym that came up newly, whom his fathers did not fear;
- He became unmindful of the Rock that begat him; and
- He forgot EL that formed him.
As a result (and as we will see in the book of Amoc), YAH prepares a judgment.
Devariym (Deuteronomy) 32:23-26
I will heap mischiefs upon them; I will spend mine arrows upon them. 24 They shall be burnt with hunger, and devoured with burning heat, and with bitter destruction: I will also send the teeth of beasts upon them, with the poison of serpents of the dust. 25 The sword without, and terror within, shall destroy both the young man and the virgin, the suckling also with the man of gray hairs. I said, I would scatter them into corners, I would make the remembrance of them to cease from among men:
