Isaiah 13:17-19
The elect dash our youth to pieces in this Day of Yahweh
By Brother Mike (5-17-17; 50 minutes)
   


17 Behold, I will stir up the Medes against them, which shall not regard silver; and as for gold, they shall not delight in it .
18 Their bows also shall dash the young men to pieces; and they shall have no pity on the fruit of the womb; their eye shall not spare children .
19 And Babylon, the glory of kingdoms, the beauty of the Chaldees' excellency, shall be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah .


INTRODUCTION   

In Isaiah 13:17-19, we continue with a look at the Day of Yahweh, which began on May 21, 2011. We are first told that in this Day of Yahweh, Yahweh stirs up the Medes against Babylon, which do not regard silver; and as for gold, they do not delight in it. We will discover in this study just who the Medes are and just what Babylon is, and what it means that the Medes do not regard silver and do not delight in gold. Then, we will find what it means that the bows of the Medes in this Day of Yahweh dash the young men to pieces, and what it means that the Medes have no pity on the fruit of the womb, and that their eye does not spare children in this Day of Yahweh. Finally, we will see some of the ways in which the overthrow of Sodom and Gomorrah typifies what has happened to Babylon in this day of Yahweh, which goes from May 21, 2011 to the end. 


Verse 13:17

17 Behold, I will stir up the Medes against them, which shall not regard silver; and as for gold, they shall not delight in it .  

In this verse, we first read, Behold, I will stir up the Medes against them. The question we have is, who are the Medes? If we think back to the first five verses of Isaiah 13, it was about the elect being first saved before May 21, 2011 to be used as weapons of Yahweh's indignation or wrath against Babylon, this world, during the Day of Yahweh ( Isaiah 13:1-5 ). This is what the first five verses of Isaiah 13 were all about. It was about the elect being mustered for battle against Babylon, which typified the world in these days. Now, in this verse, we read, Behold, I will stir up the Medes against them [Babylon, this world]. Once again, Yahweh is bringing up who it is that will rise against Babylon. And, because we had already learned that it was the elect who Yahweh was mustering for battle in the Day of Yahweh to be used as weapons of His wrath against Babylon, we already know in context that the Medes must refer to the elect.   

Now, historically, the Medes were a group of people who lived in the region of ancient Media (the same word translated as Medes), and who were descended from Madai (the same Hebrew word translated as Medes, or Media) who was a son of Japheth (Gen 10:2) who was one of the three sons of Noah. It was the Medes who under king Darius conquered Babylon in the autumn of 539 BC (Dan 5:30-31). But, as we know, this conquering of the Babylonians in history was a type of what would be the conquering of Babylon, this world, by Christ and the elect during the Day of Yahweh that we are now in. So, it makes perfect sense that the elect would be called Medes as it was the Medes in the historical account who came against and destroyed Babylon as a type of what is happening today as the Medes, the elect, are conquering this world by the proclamation that Judgment Day has come, and that salvation has ended.  

It is interesting to note that the word translated as Medes, which can also be translated as Media, or Madai as already stated, literally means middle land. And, since the elect are designated by this same term, we could say that the elect are middle land. And, how is it that they are middle land? Well, because they are still in the flesh, they are not yet fully a part of heaven, and because they are in the Spirit, they are not fully a part of this earth. Indeed, we could say that they are somewhere in between heaven and earth: not fully in heaven, and not fully on earth. They are, in fact, middle land. Hence, we can see why being called Medes (middle land) is quite a fitting name for the elect.  

Well, let's continue with our verse. When our verse says, Behold, I will stir up the Medes against them, it is saying, listen carefully, tune in, pay attention, I [Yahweh] will stir up the elect against them [Babylon, this world]. And, do we see the elect stirred up against this world, Babylon, in this day? Absolutely! Indeed, they have been stirred up ever since the Day of Yahweh began on May 21, 2011 to proclaim judgment on the world with the end to salvation. And, to the degree that they have remained faithful, they have been judging the world by their message; not because they just all of a sudden decided to become judges in themselves, but, because Yahweh has already judged the world, and the elect are making this known, namely that there is no longer any possibility for eternal salvation; that everyone who were still unsaved by May 21, 2011 are now guaranteed to remain spiritually dead in Adam, and also guaranteed to die on the soon to come Last Day of the Day of Yahweh when all those who are unsaved and in the graves, and all those who are unsaved and still remain, will come forth to be eternally damned and annihilated forever.   

Now, we are told that the elect (the Medes) who are stirred up against this world (Babylon) in this day [do] not regard silver; and as for gold, they [do] not delight in it. Isn't this a fitting description of the elect? The heart of the world is set on silver and gold as riches are what everyone desires. With riches, they can buy and do whatever they want in their pursuit of pleasure. But, the elect, they are a different breed. Their heart is not set on gold and silver, or earthly riches, but their hearts are set on Yahweh, the Lord Jesus Christ, and pleasing Him by obedience to what He teaches. We read in Luke 16,  

Lu 16:13 No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon [earthly riches or money] .  

No, the elect do not serve gold and silver, but they serve Yahweh, and so they do not regard silver and gold unlike the usual person in this world. Instead, they regard Yahweh, and are out to follow Him. Therefore, the elect can be such fierce and effective weapons against this world because their hearts are not set on the pursuit of riches in this world, which pursuit has derailed many, but their hearts are set on the pursuit of holiness in obedience to their Master, the Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, they can bring judgment on the world without falling into the world's snares. They know that Yahweh will take care of them, for what does the scripture say? It says,   

Matthew 6:25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment ?
26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they ?  
27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature ?
28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin :  
29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these .
30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith
31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed ?
32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things .  
33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you .
34 Take therefore no thought for tomorrow: for tomorrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof .   

So, what should we, the Medes, be doing in this world? We should be seeking the kingdom of God, and His righteousness, and all else that we need for survival in this world will be added unto us. And, since we are commanded to bring His judgment against this world (Babylon) in this Day of Judgment that we are now in, this is certainly what we should be doing. As we read in Jeremiah 50,

Jer 50:2 Declare ye among the nations, and publish, and set up a standard; publish, and conceal not: say, Babylon [this world] is taken, Bel is confounded, Merodach is broken in pieces; her idols are confounded, her images are broken in pieces

Yes, we, the elect, should be doing whatever we can to get the message out that Babylon, the kingdom of Satan which includes this entire world, has fallen because there is no longer any possibility for the salvation of any of its members. Eternal salvation has come to an end. Furthermore, Babylon is now guaranteed to be destroyed on the soon to come Last Day of the Day of Yahweh that we are now in when this earth will go up in flame, and those who are unsaved and in the graves along with those who are unsaved and still remain alive on this earth will be brought forth to suffer eternal death in the darkness of annihilation forever. 


Verse 13:18
:  

18 Their bows also shall dash the young men to pieces; and they shall have no pity on the fruit of the womb; their eye shall not spare children .  

Here, we first read, Their bows also shall dash the young men to pieces. And, the first question that we have is, whose bows also shall dash the young men to pieces? Why, the bows of the Medes (the elect), of course, for they are the ones in the previous verse whom Yahweh stirs up against this world (Babylon). Furthermore, the word translated as the young men in our verse is better translated as the youths to include both male and female. Therefore, our verse should read like this:  

18 Their [the elects'] bows also shall dash the youths to pieces . . .  

But, how can the bows of the elect dash the youths to pieces in this Day of Yahweh when the elect do not carry physical bows in this day? Obviously, we cannot understand the bows of the elect to be physical bows. We must look up the word translated as bows everywhere in the Bible, and see how Yahweh defines it. And, when we do that, we find that the bow is symbolic of the tongue, and the arrows they shoot are symbolic of words. For instance, we read in Jeremiah 9,  

Jer 9:3 And they bend their tongues like their bow for lies: but they are not valiant for the truth upon the earth; for they proceed from evil to evil, and they know not me, saith the LORD .  

And, in Psalm 64, we read,   

Ps 64:3 Who whet their tongue like a sword, and bend their bows to shoot their arrows, even bitter words . . .   

Furthermore, we read in Proverbs 25,  

Pr 25:18 A man that beareth false witness against his neighbour is a maul, and a sword, and a sharp arrow .  

And, we read in Jeremiah 9, 

Jer 9:8 Their tongue is as an arrow shot out; it speaketh deceit: one speaketh peaceably to his neighbour with his mouth, but in heart he layeth his wait .  

So, we can conclude that the bow represents the tongue from which the words come, and the arrows that the bow shoots are the actual words themselves.  

Now, returning to our verse, when we read, Their [the elects'] bows also shall dash the youths to pieces, we are being told that the tongues of the elect also shall dash the youths to pieces. That is, as the tongues of the elect are used to proclaim judgment upon the world (Babylon), these words which come forth from their tongues are dashing to pieces the youths. These words are saying that Judgment Day has come ever since May 21, 2011, and there is no longer any possibility for eternal salvation for anyone who was not already saved by May 21, 2011. This means that not only are all the unsaved guaranteed to remain spiritually dead in Adam, but they are also guaranteed to be eternally damned on the soon to come Last Day of the Day of Yahweh when they will all suffer eternal death in the darkness of being annihilated forever. So, the tongues (the bows) of the elect are dashing the youths of this world to pieces as they proclaim judgment on the world with the end soon to come.  

But, next, we read, and they [the elect] shall have no pity [compassion] on the fruit of the womb. Is this true? Absolutely! We, the elect, are not having compassion on babies who are the fruit of the womb because we are saying that all babies which were conceived after May 21, 2011 cannot be eternally saved, for salvation ended on May 21, 2011. This doesn't mean that we would have no compassion or pity for babies in the temporal or immediate sense in so far as this world is concerned, and we can certainly pray for babies that they might have the best life possible in this world. But, in so far as eternity is concerned, babies no longer have any hope. They are guaranteed to remain unsaved and dead in Adam as long as this world still remains, and they are guaranteed to be destroyed forever on the soon to come Last Day of the Day of Yahweh. Therefore, we have no pity or compassion for babies with respect to eternity, and neither does Yahweh, for the Day of Yahweh has come, and who is able to stand? Answer: only the elect who were all saved by May 21, 2011, of course. And, since all babies as of today as I speak were conceived after May 21, 2011, none of them can be of the elect, and so they are all destined to destruction with respect to eternity. We are, after all, in the Day of Yahweh's wrath, and, during this time, we, the elect, have no compassion or pity on babies in so far as eternity is concerned. 

Then, finally, we read in our verse that their [the elect's] eye shall not spare children. The elect's eye refers to the elect's inner soul or heart as the eye is the window to the soul. Therefore, we can say that the elect's soul or heart does not spare children in this Day of Yahweh. And, this is because their heart is the same new heart that Yahweh gave them when they had been first saved, and this new heart agrees with what Yahweh teaches about the Day of Yahweh. And, what does the Word of Yahweh teach about the Day of Yahweh that we are now in? Well, it teaches that salvation has ended ever since May 21, 2011 (see Isaiah 13:10, scroll to verse 10 , Isaiah 13:14 , " Is God Still Saving? ," Revelation 18 study - Part 3, scroll to verses 21-23 and Revelation 9 - Part 2, verse 6 ). Therefore, all children who were unsaved by May 21, 2011 are guaranteed to remain unsaved and spiritually dead in Adam while they are in this world, and they are also all guaranteed to be destroyed forever on the soon to come Last Day of the Day of Yahweh. So, with respect to all eternity, the elect's heart does not spare children from wrath during this Day of Yahweh in agreement with Yahweh Himself. Nevertheless, it does temporally spare children in this life, and, as sure as the sun still rises on the saved and unsaved alike in this world, so also do we, the elect, desire the temporal best for all children in this life. But, in so far as all eternity is concerned, our heart does not spare children, for all those children who were not saved by May 21, 2011 when the Day of Yahweh first began are destined to become extinct by annihilation according to the Word of Yahweh, and our heart (eye) concurs with this, and even proclaims this in this Day of Yahweh.   


Verse 13:19

19 And Babylon, the glory of kingdoms, the beauty of the Chaldees' excellency, shall be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah

In this verse, we first read, And Babylon, the glory of kingdoms, the beauty of the Chaldees' excellency. Babylon, as we have been saying all along, refers to the spiritual kingdom of Satan as manifest through all the billions of unsaved people who belong to all the various earthly kingdoms of this world. Therefore, we read that Babylon is the glory of kingdoms. It is the glory of kingdoms, plural, because it is manifest through virtually all the people who live in all the various kingdoms, plural, in the world.  

Now, the Hebrew word translated as glory in the statement, And Babylon, the glory of kingdoms, is the same word translated as roe deer back in Isaiah 13:14 where we found that the Roe deer is a type of Christ. So, our verse could be translated, And Babylon, the roe deer [Christ] of kingdoms. This would seem to say that Babylon, the kingdom of Satan, is the Christ of kingdoms. But, what is the Christ of kingdoms? Well, certainly it is not the true Christ being referred to here, or we would be saying that Babylon, the kingdom of Satan, is Christ, which is an impossibility. Therefore, the Christ of the kingdoms must be about their false Christ, which must do with all the splendor and glory of earthly riches and power. This is the false Christ that all the nations worship. It is Babylon, the glory of kingdoms where wealth and power is what it is all about. Indeed, the goal is to become rich and powerful and free, to become a god unto oneself, to be free to do whatever the heart so desires, and bask in pleasures unending. This is the false Christ; the idol of the kingdoms. This is Babylon, the glory of kingdoms.   

But, not only is Babylon called the glory of kingdoms, but it is called the beauty of the Chaldees' excellency. The term Chaldees is simply another name for Babylonians, which spiritually refers to all the multibillion of unsaved people in the world today. And, the word translated as excellency is the word for pride. So, our verse could read like this: And, Babylon, the glory of kingdoms, the beauty of the unsaved peoples' pride. The beauty of the unsaved peoples' pride is what Babylon is, but what is the beauty of the unsaved peoples' pride? Why, it is all the beautiful things that they have created in which they find reason to take pride in. Things such as beautiful houses and buildings, magnificently engineered automobiles, beautiful gardens, stunning clothing, incredible technologies and mediums of communications, and the list just goes on and on. These things are the beauty of the unsaved peoples' pride; they are a part of Babylon, this world, the glory of the kingdoms, the beauty of the Chaldees' excellency or pride.  

Now, we are told that Babylon, the glory of kingdoms, the beauty of the Chaldees' excellency is, in this Day of Yahweh, as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah. Let's read the account of Sodom and Gomorrah, and then look at some of the ways in which the Day of Yahweh is as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah. We begin reading in Genesis 19:1,  

1 And there came two angels to Sodom at even; and Lot sat in the gate of Sodom: and Lot seeing them rose up to meet them; and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground ;
2 And he said, Behold now, my lords, turn in, I pray you, into your servant's house, and tarry all night, and wash your feet, and ye shall rise up early, and go on your ways. And they said, Nay; but we will abide in the street all night
3 And he pressed upon them greatly; and they turned in unto him, and entered into his house; and he made them a feast, and did bake unleavened bread, and they did eat .
4 But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter
5 And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them .
6 And Lot went out at the door unto them, and shut the door after him ,  
7 And said, I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly .
8 Behold now, I have two daughters which have not known man; let me, I pray you, bring them out unto you, and do ye to them as is good in your eyes: only unto these men do nothing; for therefore came they under the shadow of my roof .  
9 And they said, Stand back. And they said again, This one fellow came in to sojourn, and he will needs be a judge: now will we deal worse with thee, than with them. And they pressed sore upon the man, even Lot, and came near to break the door .
10 But the men put forth their hand, and pulled Lot into the house to them, and shut to the door
11 And they smote the men that were at the door of the house with blindness, both small and great: so that they wearied themselves to find the door .
12 And the men said unto Lot, Hast thou here any besides? son in law, and thy sons, and thy daughters, and whatsoever thou hast in the city, bring them out of this place :  
13 For we will destroy this place, because the cry of them is waxen great before the face of the LORD; and the LORD hath sent us to destroy it .
14 And Lot went out, and spake unto his sons in law, which married his daughters, and said, Up, get you out of this place; for the LORD will destroy this city. But he seemed as one that mocked unto his sons in law .     
15 And when the morning arose, then the angels hastened Lot, saying, Arise, take thy wife, and thy two daughters, which are here; lest thou be consumed in the iniquity of the city .
16 And while he lingered, the men laid hold upon his hand, and upon the hand of his wife, and upon the hand of his two daughters; the LORD being merciful unto him: and they brought him forth, and set him without the city
17 And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad, that he said, Escape for thy life; look not behind thee, neither stay thou in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed .
18 And Lot said unto them, Oh, not so, my Lord :  
19 Behold now, thy servant hath found grace in thy sight, and thou hast magnified thy mercy, which thou hast shewed unto me in saving my life; and I cannot escape to the mountain, lest some evil take me, and I die :
20 Behold now, this city is near to flee unto, and it is a little one: Oh, let me escape thither, (is it not a little one?) and my soul shall live .  
21 And he said unto him, See, I have accepted thee concerning this thing also, that I will not overthrow this city, for the which thou hast spoken .
22 Haste thee, escape thither; for I cannot do any thing till thou be come thither. Therefore the name of the city was called Zoar .   
23 The sun was risen upon the earth when Lot entered into Zoar .
24 Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven
25 And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground .
26 But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt
27 And Abraham gat up early in the morning to the place where he stood before the LORD :
28 And he looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the plain, and beheld, and, lo, the smoke of the country went up as the smoke of a furnace
29 And it came to pass, when God destroyed the cities of the plain, that God remembered Abraham, and sent Lot out of the midst of the overthrow, when he overthrew the cities in the which Lot dwelt .   

Now, the first thing that we notice about the story of Sodom is that it is a picture of Babylon (this world) in the Day of Yahweh on May 21, 2011 as we read in Isaiah 13:19 that Babylon [in the Day of Yahweh] . . . shall be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah. Furthermore, Yahweh sent two angels to rescue Lot and his family who typify the unsaved elect who were still in Babylon (this world); that is, they were still unsaved in the days leading up to May 21, 2011 when salvation would come to an end. These two angels sent to rescue Lot and his family are a type of the saved elect as the number two symbolizes the elect, and the word translated as angels can also be translated as messengers, which can designate the saved elect. So, the two angels, the saved elect, were sent by Yahweh to rescue the other elect who were not yet saved from Sodom, which typifies that they were not yet spiritually saved from Babylon, this world, before May 21, 2011. This was seen in that the elect were fervently spreading the gospel around the world (Babylon, or Sodom) in the days leading up to May 21, 2011.   

Next, in the Sodom account, we read that the city was full of homosexuals, and these surrounded Lot's house, and desired to have sexual relations with the two angels. This was a type or picture of all the people of the world including all those in the churches (Babylon, also called Sodom) desiring to infiltrate the saved elect (who were typified by the two angels) with all their false gods and teachings as the saved elect brought the gospel leading on up to May 21, 2011. We discover that the fornication of Sodom, which includes their homosexual relationships, typifies the world's and all the churches worship of false gods, false Christs, and false teachings when leading up to May 21, 2011 in Jude 1:7 . During that time leading up to May 21, 2011, the world and all the churches were surrounding the saved elect to try and get them to worship false gods and doctrine even as the people of Sodom surrounded the house of lot trying to have sexual relations with the two angels. In fact, some of the churches even came with signs and wonder to try and deceive the elect. As we read in Matthew 24,  

Mt 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs [false gospels], and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect .  

And, again, in Mark 13,  

Mr 13:22 For false Christs [false gospels] and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect .   

But, before the churches and the world could have relations with the saved elect; that is, before the churches and the world could deceive the saved elect, we read that the two angels put forth their hand, and pulled Lot into the house to them, and shut to the door. And they smote the men that were at the door of the house with blindness, both small and great: so that they wearied themselves to find the door (Gen 19:10-11). This is a picture of what happened on May 21, 2011: through the gospel being proclaimed by the saved elect (typified by the two angels), the unsaved elect (typified by Lot) were, in a sense, pulled in through the door of salvation by the saved elect (typified by the two angels), and the saved elect (typified by the two angels) shut the door behind all those who were saved (typified by Lot) in the sense that the saved elect had proclaimed that the door of salvation would shut on May 21, 2011 for years leading up to that date, so when that date came, it was as if the saved elect (typified by the two angels) are the ones who shut the door because they were the ones who proclaimed it. Of course, we know in the deepest sense that it was Yahweh who shut the door of salvation on May 21, 2011, and the elect simply proclaimed it; nevertheless, in this historical parable it is the saved elect (typified by the two angels) who shut the door as they are the ones who proclaimed it to the world, so, in the world's eye, it was the saved elect who shut the door on May 21, 2011. It was also the saved elect (typified by the two angels) who smote the men that were at the door of the house with blindness, both small and great: so that they wearied themselves to find the door because it was they, the saved elect, who spoke to the world in parables so that the world (typified by the people of Sodom) were blinded to being able to see the spiritual meaning to the Bible, and so they wearied themselves to find the door who is Christ. We read in Mark 13,   

10 And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables ?
11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given .  
12 For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath .
13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand
14 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive :
15 For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them .  
16 But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear .
17 For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them .    

So, then, we find that Christ spoke in parables so that the non-elect would not be able to see the truth. Yes, it is as if Christ's teachings in the Bible blind them to the truth so that when the elect proclaim His teachings in the Bible, the world (typified by the people of Sodom) are not able to see the deeper spiritual truth. It is as if the elect have blinded them by their proclamation of the Bible. The result is that the people of the world (typified by the people of Sodom) when the door to salvation was shut on May 21, 2011 wearied themselves to find the door of salvation just like the people of Sodom wearied themselves to find the door to Lot's house because they were blinded to being able to see the deeper spiritual truths which lead to the door of salvation, namely Jesus Christ. Remember what Christ said in John 10:9? He said,  

Joh 10:9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture .  

Therefore, since Christ is the door of salvation, we can say that on May 21, 2011, the people of the world (typified by the people of Sodom) wearied themselves to find Christ (typified by the door to Lot's house) because they were not able to see the deeper spiritual meaning to the parabolic Word of Yahweh that the elect proclaimed. They were, indeed, blinded by the parabolic Word of the elect who were typified by the two angels who blinded the people of Sodom.  

Now, we find some more ways in which the story of Sodom and Gomorrah typifies what happened in the Day of Yahweh that we are now in, but we will have to look at these in our next study. So, let's move on to our conclusion, and we will continue where we left off the next time.   


CONCLUSION 

We learned that Yahweh is stirring up the Medes (who are the elect) against Babylon (which is the kingdom of Satan including this world). Indeed, Yahweh is motivating the elect to be involved in the proclaiming of Judgment upon this world by Yahweh having removed any possibility of salvation for anyone who was not spiritually saved in Jesus Christ by May 21, 2011 when the Day of Yahweh began. Therefore, the elect should not only support ministries that are proclaiming the Day of Yahweh's wrath ever since May 21, 2011, but they should be finding more and more ways to get that message out themselves. Even as the elect sent forth the gospel most fervently and in many ways leading up to May 21, 2011, so we, the elect, should now be sending forth the message of judgment in many ways to the entire world. We, the elect, can do this because we do not regard silver, and we do not delight in gold. Therefore, we are not easily snared into centering our lives around seeking for earthly riches as our lives are centered on obedience to Yahweh, which in this day is to declare judgment upon the world and churches: that salvation has come to an end for them, and all the billions of unsaved people in the world and churches will soon be eternally destroyed by annihilation. This is not a pleasant message to bring, for almost no one will believe what we say. Nevertheless, we are to bring the message even as the prophets of old brought their message even though no one would listen to them.   

Next, we found that this message of judgment that the elect are bringing is likened to bows which spiritually dash the youth, both males and females, to pieces. This is because there is no longer any eternal hope of salvation for the youth, which leaves them already dead in Adam and guaranteed to be destroyed forever in the fires of annihilation on the soon to come Last Day of the Day of Yahweh. Furthermore, we found that the Medes; that is, the elect do not have compassion or pity on the fruit of the womb, which means that they do not have compassion or pity on babies. In fact, their eye; that is, their heart does not even spare children. Why? Well, as was already stated, it is because there is no longer any eternal hope of salvation for the youth, which leaves them already dead in Adam and guaranteed to be destroyed forever in the fires of annihilation on the soon to come Last Day of the Day of Yahweh. 

Finally, we looked at some of the ways in which the story of Sodom and Gomorrah typified what has happened in the Day of Yahweh on May 21, 2011. First, we saw that Sodom typifies this world just before the Day of Yahweh on May 21, 2011. Second, we saw that the two angels who were sent by Yahweh to rescue Lot and his family typify the saved elect as they brought the gospel when the Day of Yahweh was approaching. Third, Lot and his family typify the yet unsaved elect in the world to whom the saved elect brought the gospel of salvation. Fourth, the people of Sodom who surrounded Lot's house and wanted to have sexual relations with the two angels; that is, the saved elect typifies the people of the world who naturally desire to lead astray the saved elect into worshiping false gods and doctrine by spiritual fornication. Fifth, the two angels who pulled Lot into the door, and shut the door typifies the unsaved elect being spiritually saved from the world by the message of the saved elect, which, in a sense, pulled all the unsaved elect in through the door of salvation, namely Jesus Christ, by May 21, 2011, and the door of salvation was shut by the two angels, namely the elect, in the sense that the elect were the ones who said the door would close on May 21, 2011. Finally, we saw that the two angels who blinded the people of Sodom to being able to find the door to Lot's house typifies the elect who blind the people of the world to being able to find the door of salvation, namely Jesus Christ, as they proclaim the parabolic Word of Yahweh which keeps the world from being able to see or understand the deeper spiritual truth of Jesus Christ, the door to salvation. 


Now, until the next time, may the LORD bless thee, and keep thee: The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace .
