Updated: And Now, A Word From Our Sponsor


That’s the Hebrew word we find in Ezekiel 2 and throughout the follow on chapters describing the House of Israel. For those of you new to our site, the House of Israel is all Israel minus the House of Judah, the Jews. The nations of the House of Israel are present in our world today, the last days. [Gen. 49; see the Feature article, Is The US, And Great Britain, In End-Times Bible Prophecy?]. The word meriy means rebellious. As repeated in these chapters of Ezekiel, we are referred to as a rebellious house. The events of the past three years in particular, the rapid and accelerating decline in all aspects of the US, Great Britain and the West's societies, i.e., the House of Israel, are a direct result of our rebelliousness, our forsaking the love of the truth of the word of God.

According to the Biblical prophecies concerning us, we cannot opt out of the effects of the world's events, no matter where we might choose to hide, be it a shelter in the wilderness or in the ignorance of our ancestral heritage. The existence of the nations of the House of Israel today is fact, a reality. And as long as we take a breath, we are active participants, like it or not, as the prophecies concerning our rebellious nations will be fulfilled. However, we have a positive path that lies before us if we choose to take it. All that follows below will affect, in one way or another, all of us and our loved ones. So it is that we have a final word, a warning to the wise from our Sponsor. Therefore, let us be wise in our choices. [See 2 Ths. 2:10-14; see our Newslink section on the Home page].

Book Excerpts

The Great Rebellion

We've lost our spiritual purity. And it is clear in the prophecies. In Isaiah 63 we read that Christ will turn to be our enemy in the end-times because we, the House of Israel, "have rebelled and vexed his Holy Spirit." But we Christians in the 21st century don't take note of these warning prophecies because we are ignorant of our Biblical heritage. And refusing to acknowledge our true Biblical identity means we can never heed the warning in the prophecies meant for us. It's a lethal Catch-22.


Updated: A Life And Death Pickle Of A Predicament

In our Sneakers article, Name Those Tenets, it lists the six basic tenets of Christianity. The sixth one, as the apostle Paul pointed out, is eternal judgement. Eternal judgement takes place at the great resurrection, not the first resurrection, where all who have lived and are in the grave, are raised from the dead and judged according to their works. This great judgement that takes place is a decision to eternal life or eternal death, not to a location. Hence those written in the Book of Life versus those not. [See Rev. 20:6, 12]. The "immortal soul" doctrine is a fiction of the Roman church. And the tumultuous predicament we find ourselves in as Christians, with the noticeable emerging Beast of Babylon the Great, his image, his mark and the number of his name, 666, all go back to the simple choice we were given way back when.
