THE "OVERFLOWING FLASH FLOOD".
"For the couch has proved
too short for stretching oneself on, and the woven sheet itself is too
narrow when wrapping oneself up. For Jehovah will rise up just as at Mount
Perazim, He will be agitated just as in the low plain near Gibeon, that He may do His deed
His deed is strange and that He may work His work
is unusual." (From Isaiah 28:20 22).
"And your covenant
with Death will certainly be dissolved…
The overflowing flash flood, when it passes through
you must also become for it a trampling place".
"And I will
make justice the measuring line and righteousness the levelling
instrument; and the hail must sweep away the refuge of a lie,
the waters themselves will flood out the very place of concealment. And
your covenant with Death will certainly be dissolved, and that vision of
yours with She'ol will not stand. The overflowing flash flood,
it passes through
must also become for it a trampling place. As often as it passes through,
it will take you men away, because morning by morning it will pass
through, during the day and during the night; and it must become nothing
a reason for quaking to make others understand what has been heard."
(Isaiah 28:17 19). |
write it upon a tablet with them, and inscribe it even in a book,
that it may serve for a future day, for a witness to time indefinite."
"So David came to Ba'al-perazim, and David
got to strike them down there. At that he said:
"Jehovah has broken
through my enemies ahead of me, like a gap made by waters." That is why he
called the name of that place Ba'al-perazim. Consequently they left their idols there,
and so David and his men took them away."
(2 Sam 5:20,21).
dwelling tower itself has been forsaken, the very hubbub of the city has
been abandoned; O'phel and the WATCHTOWER
have become bare fields..."
(From Isaiah 32:14).
"...therefore for you
will become like a broken section about
to fall down, a swelling out in a highly raised wall, the breakdown of
which may come suddenly, in an instant."
(From Isaiah 30:13).
THE DESTINY OF DOUBLE-FACED
AND THOSE OF THE "ESCAPED COMPANY".
"THEY ARE GOING FORTH TO YOU
look! there will certainly be left remaining in it an escaped company,
those being brought forth. Sons and daughters, here they are!
They are going forth to you people,
will have to see their way and their dealings. And you will certainly be
comforted over the calamity that I shall have brought upon Jerusalem, even
all that I shall have brought upon her. And they will certainly comfort you
people when you see their way and their dealings; and you will have to know that
it was not without cause that I shall have done all that I must do against her,'
is the utterance of the Lord Jehovah."
VALUELESS VISIONS AND
man, what is this proverbial saying that you people have on the soil of Israel,
saying, 'The days are prolonged, and every vision has perished'?
Therefore say to them, 'This is what the Lord Jehovah has said: "I shall
certainly cause this proverbial saying to cease, and they will no more say it as
a proverb in Israel."' But speak to them, 'The days have drawn near, and the
matter of every vision.' For there will no more prove
to be any valueless vision or double-faced divination in the midst of the house
of Israel. 'For I Myself, Jehovah, shall speak what word I shall
speak, and it will be done. There will be no postponement any more, for in your
days, O rebellious house, I shall speak a word and certainly do it,' is the
utterance of the Lord Jehovah."
See Rev 10:6). These words are with reference to
"stupid prophets, who are walking after
their own spirit, when
there is nothing that they have seen!" and so are like
"foxes in the devastated places". (Ezek 13:3,4).
vision is a fabricated and erroneous explanation of the Word of God. A "stupid prophet"
has not been called by Jehovah, and so prophesies out of his own
heart. "And as for the prophet, in case he gets fooled and actually speaks
a word, I Myself, Jehovah, have fooled that prophet". (Ezek 14:9). Foolish in
a grievous way, a "stupid prophet" incorporates safeguards into
his prophecies. When his prophecy is not fulfilled from one viewpoint
'face'), those who put faith in him pacify themselves by
re-interpreting his prophecy from another viewpoint (double
The predictions of these false prophets always have two 'faces' in
order to give a plausible alternative meaning to their false prophecy
their falsehood is exposed, for "the days have drawn near, and the matter
of every vision." (Ezek 12:23).
Because of these
"stupid prophets" and "the daughters of your people who are acting
as prophetesses out of their own heart", our Lord Jehovah will
create "a flooding downpour, and in rage there will
be hailstones for an extermination." (Ezek 13:13,17). In addition, there are four injurious acts
of Judgement: Sword, famine, injurious wild beast, and pestilence.
(Ezek 14:21). This proves that "every vision"
perished! The Word of God is still undergoing fulfilment and will yet cause
their "proverbial saying to cease".
downpour" that Jehovah will bring upon His spiritual
"land" He will
refine out "stupid prophets" and
of JWs occupying His spiritual "land". This Spirit of the Lord's Judgement will
leave remaining an "escaped company" who did not listen to
double-faced visionaries, false prophetesses, and their demonic spirit of
uncleanness. (Zech 13:2-6).
To those remaining
faithful to our Lord we say: Come forth,
that we may be comforted together!
