Isaiah 35:1 The wilderness and the desert will be glad, and the Arabah will rejoice and blossom; like the crocus…

This verse pretty much describes the land scape of Israel and the Middle East today (February 2016). It is a dry, desolate pasture where water is precious. The nation of Israel has become one of the best water management and recovery nations on the planet because of the harsh weather conditions of their land.

The Hebrew word for wilderness is midbar. It means: pasture, uninhabited land, or wilderness. Midbar also happens to be the word for mouth.

The Hebrew word for desert is tsiyah. It means: dryness, drought, or desert.

The Hebrew word for arabah is ‘arabah. It means: desert plain, steppe, or wilderness.

Ezekiel 34:26 I will make them and the places around My hill a blessing. And I will cause showers to come down in their season; they will be showers of blessing.

Joel 2:23 So rejoice, O sons of Zion, and be glad in the LORD your God; for He has given you the early rain for your vindication. And He has poured down for you the rain, the early and latter rain as before.

Typically, rain does not fall in this part of the world from May through September. The verse of Joel 2:23 discusses the three rainy seasons: fall, winter, and spring.

The early or former rain (mowreh in Hebrew) takes place in late October through mid-November, the fall rains. This is the time to get to work on the farm, plough and plant the seed. Isaiah 30:23a Then He will give you rain for the seed which you will sow in the ground…

The Hebrew word for rain is geshem. It means torrential rains and storms. These are the winter rains of January and February.

The latter rain (malqowsh in Hebrew) takes place in April and May. These are the spring rains that help with barley and wheat production and yield.

God promises to return the cycles of rain as in the past. Zechariah 8:12b …and the heavens will give their dew…

Isaiah 30:25 On every lofty mountain and on every high hill there will be streams running with water on the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall.

Water will be plentiful at higher elevations. It is one thing to have wet, low lying marsh lands. Scripture is talking about a future with abundant water in lofted areas.

Jeremiah 31:12b And their life will be like a watered garden, and they will never languish again.

The Millennial Kingdom is a time of plentiful rain and water. Scripture is full of these figurative images.

According to the prophet Zechariah, increased rain will be universal during Christ’s reign. There is one condition, attendance in Jerusalem for the Feast of Booths or Tabernacles.

Zechariah 14:18 If the family of Egypt does not go up or enter, then no rain will fall on them; it will be the plague with which the LORD smites the nations who do not go up to celebrate the Feast of Booths.

This is the only God appointed holiday gentile nations will be required to attend. If you don’t attend…

No Rain For You!

Millennial Kingdom: Healthcare

Posted in Millennial Kingdom, Prophecy with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 17, 2016 by paulthepoke

When Jesus roamed the Earth over 2,000 years ago, He was a healer. Jesus fulfilled prophecy. Isaiah 35:5-6a Then the eyes of the blind will be opened, and the ears of the deaf unstopped. Then the lame will leap like a deer, and the tongue of the mute will sing for joy…

Matthew 15:30 And large crowds came to Him, bringing with them those who were lame, crippled, blind, mute, and many others, and they laid them down at His feet; and He healed them.

Jesus healed the deaf in Mark 7:31-35.

A man with leprosy was cleansed in Matthew 8:1-3. Ten men with leprosy were cleansed in Luke 17:11-19.

When He comes the second time, health will be a hallmark of His kingdom. At the onset of the kingdom, residents will be healed from their illness. Jeremiah 30:17 ‘For I will restore you to health and I will heal you of your wounds,’ declares the LORD…

Ezekiel 34:16a “I will seek the lost, bring back the scattered, bind up the broken and strengthen the sick…”

History will repeat when Christ heals the deaf and blind. Isaiah 29:18 On that day the deaf will hear words of a book, and out of their gloom and darkness the eyes of the blind will see.

Of those born into the kingdom era, they will not face disease. Isaiah 33:24 And no resident will say, “I am sick”; the people who dwell there will be forgiven their iniquity.

Isaiah 65:20 No longer will there be in it an infant who lives but a few days, or an old man who does not live out his days; for the youth will die at the age of one hundred and the one who does not reach the age of one hundred will be thought accursed.

Still births and sudden infant death syndrome will be a thing of the past. The Hebrew word for “youth” is na ‘ar. It means: a boy, lad, servant, youth, or retainer (Strong’s Concordance). A young boy will be the age of 100 years.

Longevity of life will be restored as in the days prior to Noah’s flood. Prior to the flood as the oldest man, Methuselah lived to be 969 (Genesis 5:27). It was not uncommon to live 700-900 years as noted in Genesis 5.

With people living longer lives, the population of humanity will explode during the Millennial Kingdom.

Bad news for 21st century politicians, Jesus has a better health plan.

Zechariah 10:8 I will whistle for them to gather them together, for I have redeemed them; and they will be as numerous as they were before.
