The Locusts of the Earth - By Vanessa Panas -

On December 23, 2016, we as a nation, under former President Obama, turned our back on Israel. We abstained from a vote that we traditionally did not abstain from. The Obama administration knew without a doubt that no other nation would step in and defend Israel. This was Obama's parting shot at PM Netanyahu and all of Israel. On that day I thought this nation would certainly be doomed. God said, when speaking of Israel, I will bless those that bless Israel, and curse those who curse Israel. But there are some interesting things I have found in the Bible lately that make me question just exactly what the United States' role is in end-times prophecy.

On August 21, 2017, the United States experienced its first solar eclipse that passed through the United States since 1776, and then 33 days later on September 23, 2017, Revelation 12 was fulfilled - A 2,000 year old prophecy.

"Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars. Then being with child, she cried out in labor and in pain to give birth. And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great, fiery red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his heads. His tail drew a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth.

"And the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to give birth, to devour her Child as soon as it was born. She bore a male Child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her Child was caught up to God and His throne. Then the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days."

The gestation period for a woman from conception through birth, if she conceived on December 23, 2016, would have an estimated due date of September 23, 2017. And then the United States did something stunning just over two months after this gestation period. The President declared Jerusalem the capital of Israel.

We know that Revelation 12 tells us that Satan is waiting and ready to devour the woman's child; the woman of course is Israel. She was conceived in a tribulation of sorts for Israel. One year ago we turned on Israel. We denied them. We denied Jerusalem even belonging to the Jewish people, even though the archeological evidence has always proved otherwise.

The male child was Jesus. Satan has been here waiting to devour since creation. He was in the Garden of Eden to deceive Eve. He was waiting through King Herod to kill Jesus, and now he is about to turn his fury on Israel and the children of God like we have never seen.

God warns those living in Judea and Samaria to flee. What are they fleeing from and where are Judea and Samaria today? Judea and Samaria are in the same place they stood thousands of years ago, and are still named that today by the millions of Jews and Christians alike who live in Israel. What does the rest of the world call Judea and Samaria? "The West Bank," where there is never a day without Palestinians' threatening Jewish lives, and where at any moment another rocket attack could be launched.

If you look at the West Bank, or Judea and Samaria as they are properly called, it's very easy to see why the Jewish people will be surrounded instantly and will try to flee. They will be surrounded by millions of Muslims. The Bible refers to these multitudes of people as locusts.

Revelation 9:3-4, "And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads."

The Ishmaelites were called locusts by God. The Strong's word for "nation" in that verse is "gowy," which figuratively means "a flight of locusts." God told Hagar that He would make a great nation out of Ishmael. Abraham was promised by God that his descendants would be as numerous as the stars, and they are. Abraham is the father of Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

There is an Islamic tradition, which says "Locusts fell onto Mohammed's hand, and on the wings of the locusts it was written: "We are the army of the Great God."

The antichrist will not honor a God of his fathers, meaning he does not worship the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. He worships Allah. Allah is not God. Allah is not the same as God. He will for a time try to be God. He will ultimately be destroyed by an army. The Bible calls this nation the most terrible of nations!

Ezekiel 28:7-10 says "Because you have set your heart as the heart of a god, Behold, therefore, I will bring strangers against you, the most terrible of the nations; and they shall draw their swords against the beauty of your wisdom, and defile your splendor. They shall throw you down into the Pit, and you shall die the death of the slain In the midst of the seas.

"Will you still say before him who slays you, 'I am a god'? But you shall be a man, and not a god, in the hand of him who slays you. You shall die the death of the uncircumcised by the hand of aliens; For I have spoken,' says the Lord God."

The most terrible of nations means the strongest militarily, the strongest of fortresses. The word Terrible doesn't mean bad at all in this instance; it means the mightiest. It goes on to say that this country will also be strangers with a foreign God. There is one nation that fits these pieces perfectly. First, it cannot be a nation in Europe, because they are not strangers or aliens from a foreign land. None are what could be considered as the mightiest or most terrible of ALL nations. The Ottoman Empire and Islam swept through many parts of Europe. It is still happening today.

China? It's unlikely that they will be fighting against the antichrist to protect Christians and Jews. They are not the mightiest of nations, the most terrible of nations, nor do they have a foreign god, as many are atheist. The same can be said of North and South Korea. They do not fit.

Russia? They are not strangers in a foreign land, but they are a mighty military force; and the Ottomans warred with Russia for several hundred years. They are on the border with Turkey, where Satan's seat is, and where the Ottoman Empire began. Russia will, I believe, go back to her Orthodox Christian roots, but not yet. They are also siding with Iran. Iran and Turkey will be working together in the future to form the last caliphate.

No country other than the United States is the strongest of nations with a foreign God, AND are strangers. The world's largest Christian population belongs right here in the United States. Who has been the most terrible of nations? We have.

We ended World War 1 and World War 2. The United States dropped two bombs in Japan that pretty much ended the entire war. We had enough. In World War 1 it was the United States that entered the war in 1917, and the war ended in 1918. The United States "shocked and awed" the world as the night sky lit up in Iraq. It was the United States that ended the cold war. We are a powerful nation. We have been a powerful nation since our birth in 1776.

Revelations 12:13-17 "Now when the dragon saw that he had been cast to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male Child. But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent. So the serpent spewed water out of his mouth like a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away by the flood.

"But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the flood which the dragon had spewed out of his mouth. And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ."

Are we the two wings of a great eagle that keeps Israel safe through the 3 ½ years? I believe so! The offspring mentioned are Christians. Islamists hate Israel but they hate Christians just as much. Christians are being slaughtered in the Middle East. There is genocide happening at the hands of Muslims against Christians. The women are being raped, the children are being murdered, and the men being murdered.

All you have to do to survive is take their "mark." The Shahada is all one has to recite in order to become a Muslim: "There is no god but Allah and Muhammad is his messenger." That's it. But what have you done? You lost your soul to save your life. The Shahada is blasphemy. The Shahada is not only said but it's worn on headbands and arm bands. It's written on mosques and it's written over the black stone they worship in Mecca. The Shahada is the mark of the beast.

The Bible tells us that the image of the beast also speaks. Have you thought about how? Everyday across the world the image of the beast does indeed speak through loudspeakers connected to every mosque. It declares God has no son. Blasphemy. It declares the Shahada daily.

Revelation 13:15 "And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed."

That is happening now, and it is only going to get worse. You will be killed if you deny Allah. You will be killed if you laugh at a joke about Allah. You will be killed for making a cartoon image of Allah. You will be killed if you do not deny Christ. That is happening right now.

Last year in Iraq, a busload of Christian men, women and children were pulled from a bus by Islamists. They were told to deny Christ and profess Allah, that they may live. Not one person denied Him, including the children. They were shot to death, every last one of them immediately after refusing to renounce Christ.

There are slave auctions where non-Muslim women are beaten, sold, raped and eventually murdered. There are numerous videos with Islamists purchasing these women. All in the name of Allah. The Koran tells them it is not only their right but they are commanded to rape non-believers. Unlike in Judaism, it is the father who carries the "Muslim gene." In Judaism, the mother is the one who passes down Judaism.

Allahu Akbar does not mean God is great. It means Allah is greater. Greater than who? Ever notice Muslims with one finger held up? This is denial of the Trinity. One god, Allah. By saying Allahu Akbar, they are committing blasphemy. If a Muslim tells you that we worship the same God, they are lying to you.

Lying is also permissible in the Koran if it's used to spread Islam. They say it's the same God; all you have to say is the Shahada, right? Try saying GOD in place of Allah. It won't work. You must say Allah. Why, if they are the same God? I will gladly say there is no God but God. But it's not the same, you will be told. Question it further and you are now an Islamophobe.

Why are globalist countries so upset with the United States? The United States is recognizing Jerusalem and building her military; and the hidden evil deeds of the left are being exposed at record numbers to not be biblical. Something is happening. I don't think the United States will fail or be destroyed. I think the United States plays a significant role in prophecy, and we are seeing this more every day.

I think there has been an awakening in this country. God is not the author of confusion. It's all written here for us. Don't allegorize the literal and literalize the allegory! Jesus is returning and He is returning soon. NOTHING else needs to happen for His return.

Keep a watchful eye towards Turkey and Recep Tayyip Erdogan and the revived Ottoman Empire.

Jesus said no man knows the day or hour but my Father in heaven. We do know the seasons, the times and the signs. Now is the time to get right with God-the time to accept Jesus Christ into your heart and life. Tomorrow may be too late.
