Prophecy is an integral part of the Bible KJV; especially the “King James Volume” pictured on the left, which is over four hundred years old. Jehovah’s inspired revelation to mankind. Through this book Jehovah, and His first Son Elohim, appear through His inspired Revelation to mankind. And reveals His plan for humanity, and why we are here on this fallen earth with Satan. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/system.htm

To understand fully this website, it is manifestly (clear to see or understand) much better if you have the right books and tools. It really is imperative to understand the importance of the right tools; for the right answers. So along with your indulgence, I will try and point out some of the main points to make sense of it all; accompanied by links which will help you further yourselves. Perseverance is a must, as it will contain a huge amount of ancient knowledge. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/gathering.htm
The first of my will put you in touch with Amazon for a Bible I found most rewarding and it developed my learning all over again. This Bible is The
Companion Bible, by Bishop E.W Bullinger http://www.godsplan.org.uk/Prophecy2021-2027two.htm
The Companion Bible is a new Edition of the English Bible. Published originally in six Parts, it is now presented in one Volume, and the description which follows indicates that the Work is a self-explanatory Bible designed for the general use of all English readers throughout the world. It has an amount of information (much of it hitherto inaccessible to the ordinary English reader) in its wide margins not to be found in any of the A.V. extant (still in existence). Its position, in these respects, is unique.
In size and weight, and type and paper, as well as price, it will compare favourably with all existing editions. It is called the Companion Bible because its wide margin is intended to be a Companion to the Text; and the whole is designed as the Companion of all readers of the Bible. The human element is extended, as far as possible, so that the reader may realise that the pervading object (to spread through or be present throughout the whole of the KJV) of the KJV Bible is not merely to enable him to interpret the Bible, but to make the Bible the interpreter of God’s word, and will, to him.
To the same end this Edition is not associated with the name of any man: so that its usefulness may neither be influenced nor limited by any such consideration; but that it may commend itself, on its own merits, to the whole English-speaking race.
· IT IS NOT A NEW TRANSLATION
· IT IS NT AN EMENDED TRANSLATION
· IT IS NOT A COMMENTARY,
The text is that of the Authorised Version of 1611 as published by the Revisers in their “Parallel Bible” in 1886 (some 135 years hence). There are NO ALTERATIONS in the Text beyond what can be effected by a variation in the character of the TYPE. Hence, there is nothing that affects the ear when reading it aloud; but only that which meets the eye in order to call attention to important facts and truths.
A small circle (o) against a word or words in the Text calls attention to the same word or words which are REPEATED in the right hand margin, with the number of the verse to which they belong. When these words are referred to there will be found no “views” expressed, but only facts which are incontrovertible (certain, undeniable, and not open to question), and information which is indispensable. Thus the reader will be able to judge for himself as to the accuracy of what is suggested: and the Bible becomes its own interpreter. All Figures of Speech are noted https://levendwater.org/companion/append6.html and their bearing on interpretation1 1This is the first time that these have been presented in connection with the Authorised Version. These are the Holy Spirits own markings, calling attention to what is emphatic, (expressed, thought, or done with emphasis), and worthy of our deepest attention (See Application 10). https://levendwater.org/companion/append10.html (The Spiritual Significance of numbers). https://levendwater.org/companion/index_companion.html (Copy and Paste). Chronology is dealt with on Biblical lines, which proceed on durations rather than dates. These are adhered to as given in the Bible itself, and are not adapted or made to conform to any system. This transforms a dry study into a subject of deepest interest. The various Charts and Tables are given in Appendix 50.
The Structures of the Books are given, and all their parts: which are the surest guide to their interpretation, and the strongest proof of their inspiration. The marginal notes do not record every POSSIBLE Reading or Emendation (to correct or alter a text in order to improve it), as these would only load the pages with a mass of needless matter. Only those readings and renderings are given which will remove difficulties from the Text, enlighten the eyes, inform the mind, affect the conscience, instruct the head, and influence the life. Several of the points are, for the first time, placed within the reach of the ordinary English reader.
Following on from 2 Peter 3:5—6 (KJV) http://www.godsplan.org.uk/Prophecy2021-2027two.htm
THE FIRST BOOK OF MOSES
GENESIS http://www.godsplan.org.uk/ (KJV)
As the image on the left indicates; verses Genesis 1 & 2 are “THE WORLD THAT THEN WAS” http://www.godsplan.org.uk/2%20Peter%203.htm that is before the fall.
2 A a “And the spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.”
3 “And God said, “Let there be light :” and there was light.
Between 2 Peter:3—5 KJV and Genesis 3:
Something happened; it was caused by someone else. Who was it? http://www.godsplan.org.uk/system.htm the heaven and the earth. With Hebrew Particle “eth” before each, emphasising the Article “the”, and thus distinguishing both from Genesis 2:.1. “Heavens” in Hebrew are always plural. See note on Deuteronomy 4:26 (KJV) heaven and earth = the heavens and the earth (are always plural, and with Hebrew particle ‘eth, except Genesis 2:1 (KJV) (see note on Genesis 1:1 (KJV). This is one of the thirteen occurrences of the Hebrew expressions noted in the Massorah. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Masoretic_Text
2 Note the fig Polysyndeton [Application 6] (Po'ly-syn'de-ton; or, Many Ands (Genesis 22:9,11. Joshua 7:24. Luke 14:21). The repetition of the word "and" at the beginning of successive clauses, each independent, important, and emphatic, with no climax at the end (Compare Asyndeton and Luke 14:13). By which, in the 34 verses of this introduction, each one of 102 separate acts are emphasised; and the important word here is “God” in verse 1 is carried like a lamp through the whole of this introduction
(1. 1—2. 3). The earth. Fig. Anadiplosis. See application 6. Was = became (in the sense it became) Also rendered “be” became keeper, quit = become men, &c. Also rendered came to pass (See Ap 7).
Without form = waste. Hebrew tohū vā bohū fig paronomasia Ap 6. Not created tohū (Isa 45:18 KJV), but became tohū (Gen 1:2. & 2 Peter 3:5—6 KJV) “An enemy hath done this.”
Was. This is in Italic type, because there is no verb ”to be” in the Hebrew language. In like manner man became a ruin.
THE EARTH WHICH IS NOW (But not for much longer).

Here: the education begins, there are other Bibles available; however, if you wish to be learned you will be, but you will have to spend a lot of time finding the answers. This is only the start to all Truth led by the Holy Spirit, one which I joined several years ago. One can purchase Bullinger’s The Companion Bible at Amazon online if you wish to; and have a P.C. plus internet connection. Please use the link below, or, if you do not own a P.C. find somebody you know who has. The journey is well worth it.
Also try to find a local bookshop with lots of religious books; one a month should suit. There is far more in this Bible than you can possibly know or understand, therefore, the right tools, books, and good reading glasses; should you need them, be part of your tools.
We strive for security, long for stability, and dream of a glowing and predictable future, for ourselves and our families. But for most of us these hopes and desires are far from certain to be realised. Our world is filled with rapid and often perilous change. We could easily fall victim to an accident, act of violence, debilitating disease or natural disaster. The turbulent winds of economic and social change threaten our financial stability. Wars and acts of terrorism threaten to endanger the fabric of society, and make even more elusive the security we seek.
Consider today’s youth. A lack of confidence in the future is a major cause of anxiety among teenagers. Many thousands are convinced the good life will evaporate before they are old enough to enjoy it. They crave assurance and purpose. Nihilism (is the belief that all values are baseless and that nothing can be known or communicated. It is often associated with extreme pessimism and a radical scepticism that condemns existence.). The staggering number of teen suicides illustrates their disillusionment. Some vent their anger and frustration by setting up an alternative society of gangs.
But teens are not the only ones anxious about their future. Adults turn to physics, and astrological in unprecedented numbers, attempting to peer into the murkiness of the future. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/parables.htm
Books about the future are best sellers, and pie in the sky; just to take in your money. King Solomon, King David’s son; made an observation that “man is greatly troubled by ignorance of the future.”
Ecclesiastes 8:7 (KJV) “For He knoweth not that which shall be: for who can tell him when it shall be?” This holds true today. (The Companion Bible will give those who look for it an idea.)
1. Why is this this world so uncertain? http://www.godsplan.org.uk/wheredowego%20.htm
2. Have we no alternative? http://www.godsplan.org.uk/christianrace.htm
3. Is nothing predictable? http://www.godsplan.org.uk/providence%20.htm
4. Must we live in ignorance of our future? http://www.godsplan.org.uk/seekinggod.htm
Indeed we can, it tells us all we need to know, what lies ahead, cause of uncertainty, and the amazing turn of events that change it for the better.

· By studying Bishop E. W. Bullinger’s “Companion Bible KJV”
This Companion Bible (KJV) is unique among all literature with its Margins, Application, and more. Although it is penned by many writers from various cultures over a span of 15 centuries, it is the masterpiece of a single author, the Creator of the universe. What does the future hold for the EU? 24 th December 2021
Revelation 18:4 “And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” http://www.godsplan.org.uk/brexit.htm
Jeremiah 51:45 (KJV) “My people, go ye out of the midst of her, and deliver ye every man his soul from the fierce anger of the Lord.” http://www.godsplan.org.uk/brexit.htm
For centuries Bible students have marvelled that so many writers, from strikingly dissimilar backgrounds,, could maintain the consistent message and purpose found in the pages of Scripture. No other compilation of writings from such varied authors could compare with the Bible’s continuity and harmony. This consistency gives the Companion Bible (KJV) a few more.
2 Timothy 3:16 (KJV) “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:”
Much of this remarkable book is prophetic (predicting or foreshadowing something that does eventually happen). Its prophecies reveal critical information about the future of mankind. When we realise that the Bible is is the inspired word of Jehovah http://www.godsplan.org.uk/dispensationalplan.htm then we begin to realise the significance of its prophecies. THEY ARE RELIABLE BECAUSE JEHOVAH HIMSELF INSPIRED THEM.

The Prophet of prophets
A prophet is one through whom Jehovah speaks—one appointed to reveal the will of Jehovah to His people. One of the greatest of these prophets was Jehovah’s own Son Elohim who was named as Jesus Christ: “Jehovah, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers through the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds.”
Hebrews 1:1—2 (KJV)
1 “God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,”
2 “Hath in these last days spoken unto us by His Son [Elohim], whom He hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also He made the worlds;”
People seldom think of Jesus Christ as a prophet, but a prophet He was:
Luke 13:33 (KJV) “Nevertheless I must walk to day, and to morrow, and the day following: for it cannot be that a prophet perish out of Jerusalem.”
Luke 24:19 (KJV) “And He said unto them, What things? And they said unto Him, ‘Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, which was a prophet mighty in deed and word before [Jehovah] God and all the people:’”
Acts 3:22 (KJV) “For Moses truly said unto the fathers, ‘A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto Me; Him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever He shall say unto you.’”
John 6:14 (KJV) “Then those men, when they had seen the miracle that Jesus did, said, ‘This is of a truth that prophet that should come into the world.’”
His message—“the Gospel of the kingdom of Jehovah” http://godsplan.org.uk/education.htm
Mark 1:14 (KJV) “Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,” http://www.godsplan.org.uk/gospelofjohn.htm –is filled with prophecy. His message explains and clarifies the decided path of mankind’s destiny, revealing the way Jehovah will accomplish His master Plan. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/
The record of Jesus Christ’s birth, life, ministry, and death is one of history’s most powerful confirmations of the reliability and accuracy of Bible Prophecy.
http://www.godsplan.org.uk/Prophecy2021-2027.htm Precise details about Jesus’ birth, ministry, and crucifixion were accurately foretold hundreds, even thousands of years before He was born. Specific events and circumstances foretold centuries earlier came to pass exactly as the Hebrew prophets had predicted, providing compelling evidence of their credibility and substantiating the accuracy of these messages.
Could their words hold meaning for us today? Did you know those same prophets tell us what Jesus Christ planned for the future—your future.
You probably already know that the Lord promised to return to earth. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/secondadvent.htm That promise is an excellent example of prophecy. He also promised to finish the work He began at His first coming. Many prophesies yet to be fulfilled are directly related to the future work and mission of Christ.
Jehovah’s promises: the foundation of prophecy
Prophecy is not merely a series of unrelated predictions randomly scattered throughout the Bible. It has a structure; it is set on a firm foundation. To understand the foundation, we must realise the overall purpose of the Companion Bible (KJV), it’s themes and its structure of all the prophecies. One overall theme is that the Companion Bible (KJV) is the tale of two families.
1. The first is the family of Adam http://www.godsplan.org.uk/ethhaadham.htm, the human father of all mankind.
2. The second is the family of [Abram] or Abraham, the father of those who are faithful to Jehovah. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/Bereshith.htm
Romans 4:9, 11. (KJV)
09 “Cometh this blessedness then upon the circumcision only, or upon the uncircumcision also? for we say that faith was reckoned to Abraham for righteousness.”
11 “And he received the sign of circumcision, a seal of the righteousness of the faith which he had yet being uncircumcised: that he might be the father of all them that believe, though they be not circumcised; that righteousness might be imputed unto them also:” http://godsplan.org.uk/fulltentribes.htm
Jehovah regards people who become, in a spiritual sense, http://www.godsplan.org.uk/spiritualmaterial.htm like faithful Abraham as His own personal family, His sons, and daughters.
2 Corinthians 6:18 (KJV) “And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be My sons and daughters,” saith the Lord Almighty [Jehovah].
It is to Abraham and his descendants that Jehovah gave the promise of an eternal inheritance. Only the members of the family of Adam whom Jehovah grafts into the family, or “seed,” of Abraham (through the sacrificed Messiah, Jesus of Nazareth) may take of the eternal inheritance (Judah, Ben, and the http://godsplan.org.uk/fulltentribes.htm).
Galatians 3:29 (KJV) “And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.”
Creation of Adam and Jehovah’s final judgement (understand) is the story of Jehovah’s relationship with us, His creation. The Companion Bible, in its account of Adam http://www.godsplan.org.uk/ethhaadham.htm explains the reason for our nature. It tells us how and why sin, evil and suffering entered the world and reveals Jehovah’s solution to the problem. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/book1.htm http://godsplan.org.uk/serpentofgenesis3.htm
http://www.godsplan.org.uk/books.htm It also reveals the purpose of our existence, explaining why Jehovah and Elohim; His firstborn Son, made human beings and the incredible future He has in store for us.
At the heart of Jehovah’s plan http://www.godsplan.org.uk/ for us are many amazing promises. In a greater sense, Jehovah offers us one magnificent promise, which He first expressed to Adam and Eve and amplifies and expands throughout the Companion Bible KJV. Jehovah promises He will make available everything we need to establish and maintain an eternal relationship http://www.godsplan.org.uk/eternalplan.htm
Ephesians 3:11 (KJV) “According to the eternal purpose which He proposed in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
with Him as His children—that our salvation (the saving of somebody or something from harm, destruction, difficulty, or failure) will always be His greatest concern.
Jehovah’s objective: mankind’s redemption and salvation
Another purpose of prophecy is to urge repentance and offer everyone forgiveness through Jesus Christ’s suffering and death. This focus on bringing all people to repentance permeates (to enter something and spread throughout it, so that every part or aspect of it is affected) the prophecies of the Companion Bible (KJV).
Luke 24:46—47 (KJV)
46 “And said unto them, Thus it is written, ‘and thus it behooved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:’” (behooved meaning (it is a duty or responsibility for someone to do something).
47 “And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.”
Through the prophet Isaiah, Jehovah reveals the fundamental problem (relating to or affecting the underlying principles or structure of something) that needs solving:
Isaiah 29:13 (KJV) “Wherefore the Lord said, ‘Forasmuch as this people draw near Me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour Me, but have removed their heart far from Me, and their fear toward Me is taught by the precept of men:” Precept (a rule, instruction, or principle that guides somebody's actions, especially one that guides moral behaviour).
Jehovah describes people as having “hearts of stone”—an unyielding attitude toward Him and His instruction. This hard heartedness leads us to lives of selfishness—of greed, envy, and hatred—which bring us ever closer to the brink of destruction. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/system.htm http://godsplan.org.uk/Fourpillarsofsociety.htm
Bible prophecy, however, reveals how Jehovah will ultimately deal with the problem:
Ezekiel 36:26—27 (KJV)
26 “A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.”
27 “And I will put My spirit within you, and cause you to walk in My statutes, and ye shall keep My judgments, and do them.”
Prophecy explains Jehovah’s plan to bring this change of heart—otherwise known as repentance and conversion—to all people. So far only a few have repented and allowed their hearts to be converted through the power of Jehovah’s Spirit. The rest of humanity must yet be brought to repentance and this change of heart.
Ezekiel 36:26 (KJV) O.T. “A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.”
Romans 8:7 (KJV) N.T. “Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.”
To understand Jehovah’s dealings with humanity, we must not overlook this fact. The Companion Bible (KJV) likens Jehovah’s relationship to mankind to that of a father with his children. Children often disobey their fathers, rebelling against them and choosing actions that disappoint and at times even anger them. But that does not lessen a father’s patience, hope, and love for his children. Keeping this perspective in mind helps us understand Biblical prophecies of Jehovah, as our heavenly Father, relating to and interacting with us as His children.
Specific dates are rare
The Companion Bible (KJV) prophecy analysis the past and provides a vision of the future.
Isaiah 46:9-10 (KJV)
09 “Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like Me,”
10 “Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, ‘My counsel shall stand, and I will do all My pleasure:’”
THE PARABLE OF THE WHEAT AND TARES.
AND AN EXPLANATION.
This particular parable, told by Christ to His disciples represents the fall from grace by Adam and Eve caused by the enemy Lucifer; who held the “knowledge of good and evil”.
(Book of Genesis: 1:26—3:24 (KJV). He attacked the whole of the human race from the outset by beguiling Eve, and having sexual intercourse with her. She then induced her husband Adam to have intercourse resulting in her being pregnant; not once, but twice. (Induced = to lead or move, as to a course of action, by influence or persuasion).
This Superfecundation is the fertilization of two or more ova from the same cycle by sperm from separate acts of sexual intercourse.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superfecundation This cohabitation resulted in two offspring of Adam and Eve who begat two sons: one named Cain (father = Lucifer) the other Abel (father = Adam). Cain killed Adam in a field, but Jehovah restored the Royal Lineage through another son whose name was Seth. It was from this Royal Lineage that Our Lord Jesus Christ (second Adam) was to be born to Mariam and Joseph of the house of Jesse, which was David’s line: The other lineage is of the enemy Satan. Here lies the reason for not letting The Tares know every move He makes as they will obstruct it.
Matthew 13: 24—30 (KJV)
24 “Another parable put He forth unto them, saying, “The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed 3in his field:”
25 “But while 24men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.”
26 “But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.”
27 “So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, ‘Sir, didst not thou grow good seed 3in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?’
28 “He said unto them, ‘An enemy hath done this.’ The servants said unto him, ‘Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?’
29 “But he said, ‘Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.”
30 “Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, ‘Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.’’”
Tares. Greek zizania (which occurs only in this chapter verse 25--26). Not “darnel” (the Lolium temulentum of naturalists), but zewan as known to-day in Palestine. While growing it looks like wheat, but when full grown the ears are long and the grains almost black. Each grain of zewan must be removed before grinding wheat, or the bread is bitter and poisonous. Wheat is golden; but tares show their true colour as they ripen.
Went his way. He had no doubt as to the result. Nor should those have doubts that sow “the good seed” of the word of God. They should have as much confidence in their sowing as the “enemy” had in his; and go their way, and sow more.
Matthew 13: 36—43 (KJV)
36 “Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and His disciples came unto Him, saying, “Declare unto us the parable of the 25tares of the field.”
37 “He answered and said unto them, “He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man;”
38 “The field is the 35world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of 19the wicked one;”
39 “The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.”
40 “As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.”
41 “The Son of man shall send forth His angels, and they shall gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity;”
42 “And shall cast them 2into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.”
43 “Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father.”
WHO HATH EARS TO HEAR, LET HIM HEAR http: www.godsplan.org.uk/earstohear.htm
Ecclesiastes 12:7 (KJV) “Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.”
“If you are afraid to die,
Then you are unsure of your life on this earth.”
A Reunited kingdom
The restoration of Israel as one nation under the rule of Christ is a theme that appears in the writings of many of the prophetic Companion Bible books. That reunion will occur shortly after Christ’s return http://www.godsplan.org.uk/secondadvent.htm as King of kings. Have you noticed Jehovah God confirming, through Ezekiel, that Israel and Judah will be reunited as one people.
Ezekiel 37: 21—25 (KJV)
21 And say unto them, “Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land:”
22 “And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all.”
23 “Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions: but I will save them out of all their dwelling places, wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so shall they be My people, and I will be their God.”
24 “And David My servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them.”
25 “And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob My servant, wherein your fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, even they, and their children, and their children's children for ever: and My servant David shall be their prince for ever.”

Jeremiah 32 (KJV)
01 “The word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord in the tenth year of Zedekiah king of Judah, which was the eighteenth year of Nebuchadrezzar.”
02 “For then the king of Babylon's army besieged Jerusalem: and Jeremiah the prophet was shut up in the court of the prison, which was in the king of Judah's house.”
03 “For Zedekiah king of Judah had shut him up, saying, ‘Wherefore dost thou prophesy,’ and say, ‘Thus’ saith the Lord, ;Behold, I will give this city into the hand of the king of Babylon, and he shall take it’”
04 “And Zedekiah king of Judah shall not escape out of the hand of the Chaldeans, but shall surely be delivered into the hand of the king of Babylon, and shall speak with him mouth to mouth, and his eyes shall behold his eyes;”
05 “And he shall lead Zedekiah to Babylon, and there shall he be until I visit him,” saith the Lord: ‘though ye fight with the Chaldeans, ye shall not prosper.’”
06 “And Jeremiah said, ‘The word of the Lord came unto me,’ saying,’”
07 “Behold, Hanameel the son of Shallum thine uncle shall come unto thee saying, Buy thee my field that is in Anathoth: for the right of redemption is thine to buy it.”
08 “So Hanameel mine uncle's son came to me in the court of the prison according to the word of the Lord, and said unto me, ‘Buy My field, I pray thee, that is in Anathoth, which is in the country of Benjamin: for the right of inheritance is thine, and the redemption is thine; buy it for thyself.’ Then I knew that this was the word of the Lord.’”
09 “And I bought the field of Hanameel my uncle's son, that was in Anathoth, and weighed him the money,” ‘Even seventeen shekels of silver.’”
10 “And I subscribed the evidence, and sealed it, and took witnesses, and weighed him the money in the balances.”
11 “So I took the evidence of the purchase, both that which was sealed according to the law and custom, and that which was open:”
12 “And I gave the evidence of the purchase unto Baruch the son of Neriah, the son of Maaseiah, in the sight of Hanameel mine uncle's son, and in the presence of the witnesses that subscribed the book of the purchase, before all the Jews that sat in the court of the prison.”
13 “And I charged Baruch before them, saying,”
14 “Thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel; Take these evidences, this evidence of the purchase, both which is sealed, and this evidence which is open; and put them in an earthen vessel, that they may continue many days.”
15 “For thus” saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel; ‘Houses and fields and vineyards shall be possessed again in this land.’”
16 “Now when I had delivered the evidence of the purchase unto Baruch the son of Neriah, I prayed unto the Lord, saying,”
17 “Ah Lord God! behold, thou hast made the heaven and the earth by Thy great power and stretched out arm, and there is nothing too hard for thee:”
18 “Thou shewest loving kindness unto thousands, and recompensest the iniquity of the fathers into the bosom of their children after them: the Great, the Mighty God, the Lord of hosts, is His name,”
19 “Great in counsel, and mighty in work: for thine eyes are open upon all the ways of the sons of men: to give every one according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings:”
20 “Which hast set signs and wonders in the land of Egypt, even unto this day http://www.godsplan.org.uk/riddleofthesphinx.htm , and in Israel, and among other men; and hast made thee a name, as at this day;”
21 “And hast brought forth thy people Israel out of the land of Egypt with signs, and with wonders, and with a strong hand, and with a stretched out arm, and with great terror;” http://www.godsplan.org.uk/exodus34.htm
22 “And hast given them this land, which thou didst swear to their fathers to give them, a land flowing with milk and honey;”
23 “And they came in, and possessed it; but they obeyed not thy voice, neither walked in thy law; they have done nothing of all that thou commandedst them to do: therefore thou hast caused all this evil to come upon them:” Our forefathers. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/Lineage6.htm
24 “Behold the mounts, they are come unto the city to take it; and the city is given into the hand of the Chaldeans, that fight against it, because of the sword, and of the famine, and of the pestilence: and what thou hast spoken is come to pass; and, behold, thou seest it.” History is very revealing.
25 “And thou hast said unto Me, O Lord God, Buy thee the field for money, and take witnesses; for the city is given into the hand of the Chaldeans.”
26 “Then came the word of the Lord unto Jeremiah, saying,”
27 “Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh: is there anything too hard for Me?”
28 “Therefore thus” saith the Lord; ‘Behold, I will give this city into the hand of the Chaldeans, and into the hand of Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon, and he shall take it:’”
29 “And the Chaldeans, that fight against this city, shall come and set fire on this city, and burn it with the houses, upon whose roofs they have offered incense unto Baal, and poured out drink offerings unto other gods, to provoke Me to anger.”
30 “For the children of Israel and the children of Judah have only done evil before Me from their youth:” ‘For the children of Israel have only provoked Me to anger with the work of their hands, saith the Lord.’”
31 “For this city hath been to Me as a provocation of mine anger and of My fury from the day that they built it even unto this day; that I should remove it from before My face,”
Gathering knowledge from the Holy Bible; which is a full history of man; wherefore men, today are ignorant of the truth; while going about life as though they had all the time in the world. However; time is running out rapidly http://www.godsplan.org.uk/Orion.htm and knowing where to start, and what to look for, is a matter for you. The image portrayed on the left indicates the fall from Eden, although this has been buried so deep by the enemy, that you have to dig to find the TRUTH. The story begins at the top left of the image which shows a painting of the ceiling at the Denderah Temple, in Esneh Egypt.

2 Timothy 3 (KJV)
01 “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.”
02 “For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,”
03 “Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,”
04 “Traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;”
05 “Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.”
06 “For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,”
07 “Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.”
08 “Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds reprobate concerning the faith.” http://www.godsplan.org.uk/jannesandjambres.htm
09 “But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was.”
10 “But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience,”
11 “Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the Lord delivered me.”
12 “Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.”
13 “But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.”
14 “But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them;”
15 “And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.”
16 “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:”
17 “That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.”
Putting it all in context
The events at the time of the end are the climax of trends that began in the Garden of Eden. There Satan persuaded Adam & Eve to defy God’s commands. At the time of the end, God will draw a clear distinction (a difference between two or more people or things, or the recognition of such a difference), between people who live by His commandments and those who devise their own (to conceive of the idea for something and work out how to make it or put it into practice) religious practices and rules of life under Satan’s influence. The winners will be “those who do His commandments” and therefore “have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city [New Jerusalem]
Revelation 22:14 (KJV) “Blessed are they that do His commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.”
Let’s next put Satan’s determination to destroy God’s people into a larger context. In a vision the apostle John watched Jehovah give Christ [Hebrew Elohim], in the presence of many witnesses, the greater part of the Book of Revelation. It was in the form of a scroll. This scroll contained descriptions of significance events to Christ’s second coming. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/secondadvent.htm But it was sealed with seven seals. Only Elohim Himself was found worthy to break the seals and open it to our understanding Revelation 4 & 5.
John had made it clear in Revelation 1:10 (KJV) that the “Lord’s Day,” or Day of the Lord, is the primary subject of these visions from Elohim. They strip off the veil from the Old Testament prophecies that speak of Jehovah’s judgement on the nations. http://www.godsplan.org.uk/significanceofnumbers.htm and finally http://godsplan.org.uk/pastpresentfuture.htm
