Will the lands of the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand be divided? What does Bible prophecy teach? Are there non-biblical prophecies that support this idea? Who will divide those lands? Who will end up with the lands and the people? What about others?
This article will attempt to address these questions (a related sermon-length video would be Will the USA and other Anglo-nations be Divided and Their People Made Slaves?).
The Bible shows that before he died, Jacob (also known as Israel) stated that he wanted the descendants of Joseph (Ephraim and Manasseh) to be named after him (Genesis 48:16). Therefore, Bible readers need to be aware that many of the scriptures that involve end time prophecies and "Israel" are directed towards the descendants of Joseph. In modern times, these descendants are the major ethnic group in the USA, Canada, Australia, UK (including territories such Gibraltar and the Falkland Islands), and New Zealand. More details on this are in the article Anglo - America in Prophecy & the Lost Tribes of Israel for those who wish to research this further.
Many verses in the Bible show that those who represent end time Israel will have their lands divided and peoples scattered.
Although many do not accept that the USA and its Anglo-Saxon allies are descended from Joseph, all should still find the following end time scripture provides compelling evidence that the the USA, at least, will have its lands divided by the final King of the North:
39 Thus he shall act against the strongest fortresses with a foreign god, which he shall acknowledge, and advance its glory; and he shall cause them to rule over many, and divide the land for gain (Daniel 11:39, NKJV except as otherwise specified).
The "he" in the Daniel 11:39 is the final end time King of the North; the final Beast of Revelation 13. Notice that he goes against the "strongest fortresses".
Who could have the "strongest fortresses"?
At this time, the strongest fortresses in the world belong to the USA and, to a much lessor degree (except as they align with the USA), its Anglo-Saxon allies. Notice that the verse in Daniel also mentions that the land will be divided for gain. The fact that this King of the North divides the land for gain suggests that he will not keep all of it for himself or his empire.
Here is what the Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges, which is a commentary (the portion about Daniel was by S. R. Driver in 1900) teaches about Daniel 11:39:
39. And he will do to the fortresses of strongholds with (the help of) a foreign god] i.e. will conquer them by his aid. ...
strange] i.e. (from Lat. ‘extraneus’) foreign, as regularly in A.V.
he whom he recognizes, will increase glory] his favourites will be loaded by him with honours. ‘Recognize’ (הִכִּיר), as Ruth 2:10 (‘take knowledge of’); Jeremiah 24:5 (‘regard’).
shall cause them to rule over the many, and shall divide land for a price] he will give them posts as governors, and grant them estates—seized, probably, from their rightful owners—for a bribe.
And yes, biblically we can expect that the European Beast power will give estates/lands to his supporters (watch also Can You Prove that the Beast to Come is European?). And in the 21st century this would seem to include providing land to foreign governments, like Mexico for example. Mexico has many citizens that wants lands back that the USA ended up with. Maybe a governorship, gift, or other arrangement with the King of the North would seem to be consistent with this verse.
But this verse is not an isolated verse concerning lands being divided.
Other verses of the Bible also show the land being divided:
16 The anger of the LORD hath divided them; he will no more regard them (Lamentations 4:16, KJV).
2 And I will enter into judgment with them there On account of My people, My heritage Israel, Whom they have scattered among the nations; They have also divided up My land. They have also cast lots for my people...(Joel 3:2-3, NKJV).
17... Your land shall be divided by survey line; You shall die in a defiled land; And Israel shall surely be led away captive From his own land (Amos 7:17, NKJV)
I used the KJV for Lamentations 4:16 as it correctly translated the Hebrew word as divided. The is term translated as “scattered them” by the NKJV in Lamentations, but it is the same Hebrew word (Strong’s 2505) used in Daniel 11:39 translated as “divide.”
It is also the same Hebrew word used in Ezekiel 5:1 where the hair (apparently representing the U.S.A., etc.) is divided and then will "scatter to the wind"--hence indicating that the people that survive will end up in many lands (and not in a good way):
1 "And you, son of man, take a sharp sword, take it as a barber's razor, and pass it over your head and your beard; then take scales to weigh and divide the hair. 2 You shall burn with fire one-third in the midst of the city, when the days of the siege are finished; then you shall take one-third and strike around it with the sword, and one-third you shall scatter in the wind: I will draw out a sword after them...12 One-third of you shall die of the pestilence, and be consumed with famine in your midst; and one-third shall fall by the sword all around you; and I will scatter another third to all the winds, and I will draw out a sword after them...8 Yet I will leave a remnant, so that you may have some who escape the sword among the nations, when you are scattered through the countries. (Ezekiel 5:1-2,12; 6:8).
13 "Behold, therefore, I beat My fists at the dishonest profit which you have made, and at the bloodshed which has been in your midst. 14 Can your heart endure, or can your hands remain strong, in the days when I shall deal with you? I, the Lord, have spoken, and will do it. 15 I will scatter you among the nations, disperse you throughout the countries, and remove your filthiness completely from you. (Ezekiel 22:13-15)
By having massive debt that they will not pay back, the peoples of the USA and UK make a "dishonest profit" and they will be scattered among nations and countries--via "all the winds." Following "all the winds" means that not all will end up in the same place.
There is a prophecy in the Book of Lamentations that points to the USA being betrayed by friends:
1 How lonely sits the city That was full of people! How like a widow is she, Who was great among the nations! The princess among the provinces Has become a slave! 2 She weeps bitterly in the night, Her tears are on her cheeks; Among all her lovers She has none to comfort her. All her friends have dealt treacherously with her; They have become her enemies. (Lamentations 1:1-2)
The USA is "great among the nations." The Europeans are considered to be friends of the USA--but the European Beast power will destroy the USA (Daniel 11:39). In case you want clarification and details about the Beast, you may also wish to watch the video: Can You Prove that the Beast to Come is European?
God says if those of Israel and Ephraim do not listen and obey Him, they will have their cities destroyed and be scattered:
27 'And after all this, if you do not obey Me, but walk contrary to Me,
28 then I also will walk contrary to you in fury;
and I, even I, will chastise you seven times for your sins.
29 You shall eat the flesh of your sons, and you shall eat the flesh of your daughters.
30 I will destroy your high places, cut down your incense altars, and cast your carcasses on the lifeless forms of your idols;
and My soul shall abhor you.
31 I will lay your cities waste and bring your sanctuaries to desolation, and I will not smell the fragrance of your sweet aromas.
32 I will bring the land to desolation, and your enemies who dwell in it shall be astonished at it.
33 I will scatter you among the nations and draw out a sword after you;
your land shall be desolate and your cities waste. (Leviticus 26:27-33)
16 Ephraim is stricken, Their root is dried up; They shall bear no fruit...
17 My God will cast them away, Because they did not obey Him; And they shall be wanderers among the nations. (Hosea 9:16-17)
Their lands look like Sodom and they will be uprooted (which means the survivors will end up somewhere else)--and mainly only those who believe God's word and try to keep His law will understand it before it happens:
23 'The whole land is brimstone, salt, and burning; it is not sown, nor does it bear, nor does any grass grow there, like the overthrow of Sodom and Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboiim, which the Lord overthrew in His anger and His wrath.' 24 All nations would say, 'Why has the Lord done so to this land? What does the heat of this great anger mean?' 25 Then people would say: 'Because they have forsaken the covenant of the Lord God of their fathers, which He made with them when He brought them out of the land of Egypt; 26 for they went and served other gods and worshiped them, gods that they did not know and that He had not given to them. 27 Then the anger of the Lord was aroused against this land, to bring on it every curse that is written in this book. 28 And the Lord uprooted them from their land in anger, in wrath, and in great indignation, and cast them into another land, as it is this day.' 29 "The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but those things which are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law. (Deuteronomy 29:23-29)
Furthermore, look at Lamentations and more from Hosea:
4 We pay for the water we drink, And our wood comes at a price. 5 They pursue at our heels; We labor and have no rest. 6 We have given our hand to the Egyptians And the Assyrians, to be satisfied with bread. 7 Our fathers sinned and are no more, But we bear their iniquities. 8 Servants rule over us; There is none to deliver us from their hand”. (Lamentations 5:4-8)
18 They tracked our steps
So that we could not walk in our streets.
Our end was near;
Our days were over,
For our end had come.
19 Our pursuers were swifter
Than the eagles of the heavens.
They pursued us on the mountains
And lay in wait for us in the wilderness. (Lamentations 4:18-19)
8 Israel is swallowed up; Now they are among the Gentiles
Like a vessel in which is no pleasure. 9 For they have gone up to Assyria (Hosea 8:8-9)
3 They shall not dwell in the Lord's land, But Ephraim shall return to Egypt, And shall eat unclean things in Assyria...17 My God will cast them away, Because they did not obey Him; And they shall be wanderers among the nations. (Hosea 9:3,17)
Notice that some of the above passages mention Assyria (including eating unclean things there), which is who God will use to punish the certain descendants of Israel, such as the U.S.A., U.K. etc. (cf. Isaiah 10:5-7). And that they will be pursued even in the wilderness.
It may be of some interest to note that the Hebrew word translated as “gain” (Strong’s 4242) in Daniel 11:39 is the term translated as “price” in Lamentations 5:4. The word translated as “rule over them” in v. 8, is the same Hebrew word that is translated as “rule over many” (Strong’s 4910) in Daniel 11:39. Although this is not totally conclusive, Lamentations 5 seems to provide further scriptural evidence that the United States, etc. may be attacked in Daniel 11:39.
And that is when the Great Tribulation would begin (see The Great Tribulation). This is the time of “Jacob’s trouble” (Jeremiah 30:7).
The late Herbert W. Armstrong wrote:
The GREAT TRIBULATION, we shall fully then realize, is the time of "Jacob's Trouble," spoken of in Jeremiah 30:7. And Jacob's name was named on Joseph's sons, Ephraim and Manasseh (Gen. 48:16). At that time a third of the people in our nations will die, or shall have died, by famine and disease epidemics; another third will dies of the war--our cities being destroyed (Ezek. 6:6), and the remaining third will be carried to the land of our enemies as slaves (Ezek. 5:12). Armstrong, Herbert W. The Time We Are In, Now. Pastor General's Report-Vol 1, No. 15, November 20, 1979, Page 2).
Jacob's trouble is punishment inflicted on the descendants of Israel.
Here is part of why:
47 "Because you did not serve the Lord your God with joy and gladness of heart, for the abundance of everything, 48 therefore you shall serve your enemies, whom the Lord will send against you, in hunger, in thirst, in nakedness, and in need of everything; and He will put a yoke of iron on your neck until He has destroyed you. 49 The Lord will bring a nation against you from afar, from the end of the earth, as swift as the eagle flies, a nation whose language you will not understand, 50 a nation of fierce countenance, which does not respect the elderly nor show favor to the young. (Deuteronomy 28:47-50)
The warring Beast (Revelation 13:1-4), also known as the King of the North will fight quickly and fiercely and take over and scatter the Anglo-Saxon peoples. Debt (Habakkuk 2:3-8), hypocrisy (Isaiah 10:5-6), and sin (Deuteronomy 28) will be major factors (for more details as to why, please see Anglo - America in Prophecy & the Lost Tribes of Israel).
Notice also why:
10 "And it shall be, when you show this people all these words, and they say to you, 'Why has the Lord pronounced all this great disaster against us? Or what is our iniquity? Or what is our sin that we have committed against the Lord our God?' 11 then you shall say to them, 'Because your fathers have forsaken Me,' says the Lord; 'they have walked after other gods and have served them and worshiped them, and have forsaken Me and not kept My law. 12 And you have done worse than your fathers, for behold, each one follows the dictates of his own evil heart, so that no one listens to Me. 13 Therefore I will cast you out of this land into a land that you do not know, neither you nor your fathers; and there you shall serve other gods day and night, where I will not show you favor.' (Jeremiah 16:10-13)
47 “Because you did not serve the LORD your God with joy and gladness of heart, for the abundance of everything, 48 therefore you shall serve your enemies, whom the LORD will send against you, in hunger, in thirst, in nakedness, and in need of everything; and He will put a yoke of iron on your neck until He has destroyed you. 49 The LORD will bring a nation against you from afar, from the end of the earth, as swift as the eagle flies, a nation whose language you will not understand, 50 a nation of fierce countenance, which does not respect the elderly nor show favor to the young. 51 And they shall eat the increase of your livestock and the produce of your land, until you are destroyed; they shall not leave you grain or new wine or oil, or the increase of your cattle or the offspring of your flocks, until they have destroyed you. 52 They shall besiege you at all your gates until your high and fortified walls, in which you trust, come down throughout all your land; and they shall besiege you at all your gates throughout all your land which the LORD your God has given you (Deuteronomy 28:47-52).
Notice that gates, including likely sea-gates, will be lost to an enemy (see also Will the UK Lose Gibraltar and the Falkland Islands?).
Here is another reason why this will happen:
4 And you, even yourself,
Shall let go of your heritage which I gave you;
And I will cause you to serve your enemies
In the land which you do not know;
For you have kindled a fire in My anger which shall burn forever. (Jeremiah 17:4)
The Anglo-nations have forsaken their heritage--their biblical heritage. They will be punished for disobedience and scattered:
58 "If you do not carefully observe all the words of this law that are written in this book, that you may fear this glorious and awesome name, THE LORD YOUR GOD, 59 then the Lord will bring upon you and your descendants extraordinary plagues — great and prolonged plagues — and serious and prolonged sicknesses. 60 Moreover He will bring back on you all the diseases of Egypt, of which you were afraid, and they shall cling to you. 61 Also every sickness and every plague, which is not written in this Book of the Law, will the Lord bring upon you until you are destroyed. 62 You shall be left few in number, whereas you were as the stars of heaven in multitude, because you would not obey the voice of the Lord your God. 63 And it shall be, that just as the Lord rejoiced over you to do you good and multiply you, so the Lord will rejoice over you to destroy you and bring you to nothing; and you shall be plucked from off the land which you go to possess.
64 "Then the Lord will scatter you among all peoples, from one end of the earth to the other, and there you shall serve other gods, which neither you nor your fathers have known — wood and stone. 65 And among those nations you shall find no rest, nor shall the sole of your foot have a resting place; but there the Lord will give you a trembling heart, failing eyes, and anguish of soul. 66 Your life shall hang in doubt before you; you shall fear day and night, and have no assurance of life. 67 In the morning you shall say, 'Oh, that it were evening!' And at evening you shall say, 'Oh, that it were morning!' because of the fear which terrifies your heart, and because of the sight which your eyes see. (Deuteronomy 28:58-67)
Jesus Himself warned that non-Gentile peoples would be taken into captivity during the time of the Gentiles, the great tribulation:
23 But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! For there will be great distress in the land and wrath upon this people. 24 And they will fall by the edge of the sword, and be led away captive into all nations. And Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled. (Luke 21:23-24)
The Bible is clear that the Beast power will kill some and take captive others:
4...the beast...10 He who leads into captivity shall go into captivity; he who kills with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints. ( Revelation 13:4,10)
3 Woe to you who put far off the day of doom,
Who cause the seat of violence to come near;
4 Who lie on beds of ivory,
Stretch out on your couches,
Eat lambs from the flock
And calves from the midst of the stall;
5 Who sing idly to the sound of stringed instruments,
And invent for yourselves musical instruments like David;
6 Who drink wine from bowls,
And anoint yourselves with the best ointments,
But are not grieved for the affliction of Joseph.
7 Therefore they shall now go captive as the first of the captives,
And those who recline at banquets shall be removed.
8 The Lord God has sworn by Himself,
The Lord God of hosts says:
"I abhor the pride of Jacob,
And hate his palaces;
Therefore I will deliver up the city
And all that is in it." (Amos 6:3-8, NKJV)
Thus, the idea of a captivity for the Anglo-Saxon peoples is supported by many scriptures. People need to pay attention and not overlook this. Amos 6:6 may be mainly referring to the descendants of sons of Joseph (Ephraim and Manasseh) or it may also include the rest of the tribes of Israel (see also Anglo - America in Prophecy & the Lost Tribes of Israel) who, thus, may be subject to captivity and/or slavery.
The Bible teaches that Gentile peoples will dominate for 42 months (Revelation 11:2) and consume Jacob (Jeremiah 10:25) (for more on the time of the Gentiles see also When Will the Great Tribulation Begin?. The USA and its Anglo-Saxon allies are descedants of Joseph--and Joseph will have affliction and captivity because of pride and other sins.
Judah will also be affected.
The idea that Jerusalem itself will be divided and many be sent to captivity is clearly in scripture:
2 For I will gather all the nations to battle against Jerusalem;
The city shall be taken,
The houses rifled,
And the women ravished.
Half of the city shall go into captivity,
But the remnant of the people shall not be cut off from the city. (Zechariah 14:2)
News items have come out indicating the EU, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, and others want to divide Jerusalem between the Jews and the Palestinians. This may be why only one half of Jerusalem goes into captivity.
Since the Bible tells of Gentiles controlling Jerusalem for a certain period (e.g. Revelation 11:2) Zechariah 14:2 would seem to be the Jewish/Israeli half being taken captive as "Jerusalem will be trambled by Gentiles" (Luke 21:24) about this time.
Will this captivity affect Christians whether or not from or in the Anglo-nations?
The Bible shows at the start of the Great Tribulation, there will be two groups of Christians.
One goes to a place of protection (for details read the article There is a Place of Safety for the Philadelphians. Why it May Be Petra or watch the YouTube video Might Petra be the Place of Safety?), but the other will not:
17 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. (Revelation 12:17)
25 He shall speak pompous words against the Most High, Shall persecute the saints of the Most High, And shall intend to change times and law. Then the saints shall be given into his hand For a time and times and half a time. (Daniel 7:25)
Christians will not be 'raptured' prior to the start of the Great Tribulation (for details read the article Is There A Secret Rapture for the Church? When and Where is the Church Protected? or watch the short YouTube video Did Jesus Teach a Pre-tribulation Rapture?)
The idea that both physical and spiritual Israel will be subject to captivity has been taught for a long time. Notice something from the December 1951 edition of the old Good News magazine by the old Radio Church of God:
Will Christians be Taken Into Captivity?
The great tribulation-our time of captivity-is a time when the Christians are to be tried...
This refers to both national and spiritual Israel. That is, the nations of Israel today, America, England and the North- western Democracies of Europe will suffer during the coming war or the tribulation period when Europe arises to war against us. But, also those called to be a separate people, true Christians, spiritual Israel, will suffer greatly because of their belief.
Again, in Revelation 7: 14 we are told...Also turn to Rev. 6:9-11...
The preceding certainly shows that many Christians will have to suffer during the captivity as they did during the Middle Ages. The church has to flee...in Revelation 12. But, God has shown us a way of escape if we will heed, by our obedience to Him. Read Luke 21:36, “Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.”
(Question Box. Will Christians be Taken Into Captivity? Good News, December 1951, pp. 12,16)
The Bible shows that Christians, unless they are truly Philadelphian (Revelation 3:7-10), are subject to the "hour of trial," which includes captivity during the time of the Great Tibulation.
The Bible also shows that the descendants of Israel will be plucked from their lands:
58 "If you do not carefully observe all the words of this law that are written in this book, that you may fear this glorious and awesome name, THE LORD YOUR GOD, 59 then the Lord will bring upon you and your descendants extraordinary plagues — great and prolonged plagues — and serious and prolonged sicknesses. 60 Moreover He will bring back on you all the diseases of Egypt, of which you were afraid, and they shall cling to you. 61 Also every sickness and every plague, which is not written in this Book of the Law, will the Lord bring upon you until you are destroyed. 62 You shall be left few in number, whereas you were as the stars of heaven in multitude, because you would not obey the voice of the Lord your God. 63 And it shall be, that just as the Lord rejoiced over you to do you good and multiply you, so the Lord will rejoice over you to destroy you and bring you to nothing; and you shall be plucked from off the land which you go to possess. (Deuteronomy 28:58-63)
Being plucked from lands means that the people who survive will go somewhere.
The Bible is clear that certain lands will be divided, and it is also fairly clear that the one that physically does much (or all) of the dividing is the final King of the North (cf. Daniel 11:39-40).
But who helps him and who does he divide the land with?
This is not explicitly clear from scriptures in Daniel.
But there are several clues throughout the Bible to what happens to the peoples conquered.
Most will be scattered among the Gentiles:
13 And the Lord said, "Because they have forsaken My law which I set before them, and have not obeyed My voice, nor walked according to it, 14 but they have walked according to the dictates of their own hearts and after the Baals, which their fathers taught them," 15 therefore thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: "Behold, I will feed them, this people, with wormwood, and give them water of gall to drink. 16 I will scatter them also among the Gentiles, whom neither they nor their fathers have known. And I will send a sword after them until I have consumed them." (Jeremiah 9:13-16)
25... Gentiles, who do not know You...they have eaten up Jacob, Devoured him and consumed him,
And made his dwelling place desolate. (Jeremiah 10:25)
13 I will also spread My net over him, and he shall be caught in My snare. I will bring him to Babylon, to the land of the Chaldeans; yet he shall not see it, though he shall die there. 14 I will scatter to every wind all who are around him to help him, and all his troops; and I will draw out the sword after them. 15 "Then they shall know that I am the Lord, when I scatter them among the nations and disperse them throughout the countries. 16 But I will spare a few of their men from the sword, from famine, and from pestilence, that they may declare all their abominations among the Gentiles wherever they go. Then they shall know that I am the Lord." (Ezekiel 12:13-16)
So going to the lands of the Gentiles, the final Babylon (which will be based in Europe) and the Chaldeans (the "daughter of the Chaldeans", Isaiah 47:1–12, seems to be the false compromised end time harlot church--cf. Revelation 17:1-5; 18:23) is prophesied.
Sorcery was a part of the Chaldean religion of Babylon (Hittell JS. A history of the mental growth of mankind in ancient times, Volume 2. H. Holt & Co., 1893. Original from the University of California, Digitized Oct 15, 2007, p. 287) and is a distinguishing mark of the end time Babylon (Revelation 18:23; 9:21). The Chaldean religion of Babylon had many temples and priests (Hittell, pp. 285-287). Sorcery and harlotry are sins mentioned in the Bible (Nahum 3:1-4,18) as being connected to Nineveh/Assyria (modern Germany). People will be sent to lands affected by the end time Babylonian religion (Ezekiel 12:13-16).
Speaking of sorcery and the dividing power, notice some of what Isaiah wrote:
1 Come down and sit in the dust, O virgin daughter of Babylon; Sit on the ground without a throne, O daughter of the Chaldeans! For you shall no more be called Tender and delicate. 2 Take the millstones and grind meal. Remove your veil, Take off the skirt, Uncover the thigh, Pass through the rivers. 3 Your nakedness shall be uncovered, Yes, your shame will be seen; I will take vengeance, And I will not arbitrate with a man." 4 As for our Redeemer, the Lord of hosts is His name, The Holy One of Israel. 5 "Sit in silence, and go into darkness,O daughter of the Chaldeans; For you shall no longer be called The Lady of Kingdoms. 6 I was angry with My people; I have profaned My inheritance, And given them into your hand. You showed them no mercy; On the elderly you laid your yoke very heavily...12 Stand now with your enchantments And the multitude of your sorceries...(Isaiah 47:1-6,12)
In Isaiah 47:7-8 this "virgin daughter of Babylon" of Babylon makes a nearly identical statement that the harlot Babylon does in Revelation 18:7. This is the same power. And the "yoke" that is being laid heavily appears to include slavery.
Thus, the scatterer, with help the help of a sorcery-involved daughter of the Chaldeans, is also called the "daughter" of ancient Babylon ( Jeremiah 50:41-42). This would seem to be an arrangement between a European empire and a mystical religion. The beast and false prophet of Revelation 13 (with the beast being the same person as the final King of the North in Daniel 11:39-44) are the ones that will help scatter the disobedient Israelites (though they will be punished later themselves, cf. Revelation 19:20).
Notice that one of the curses for disobedience by Israel was to be scattered in many nations and having some people shipped back to Egypt:
62 You shall be left few in number, whereas you were as the stars of heaven in multitude, because you would not obey the voice of the Lord your God. 63 And it shall be, that just as the Lord rejoiced over you to do you good and multiply you, so the Lord will rejoice over you to destroy you and bring you to nothing; and you shall be plucked from off the land which you go to possess.
64 "Then the Lord will scatter you among all peoples, from one end of the earth to the other, and there you shall serve other gods, which neither you nor your fathers have known — wood and stone. 65 And among those nations you shall find no rest, nor shall the sole of your foot have a resting place; but there the Lord will give you a trembling heart, failing eyes, and anguish of soul. 66 Your life shall hang in doubt before you; you shall fear day and night, and have no assurance of life. 67 In the morning you shall say, 'Oh, that it were evening!' And at evening you shall say, 'Oh, that it were morning!' because of the fear which terrifies your heart, and because of the sight which your eyes see.
68 "And the Lord will take you back to Egypt in ships, by the way of which I said to you, 'You shall never see it again.' And there you shall be offered for sale to your enemies as male and female slaves, but no one will buy you." (Deuteronomy 28:62-68)
It should be noted that the children of Israel originally walked out from Egypt. And while ships could have been used, the fact that ships are expected to be used in the future suggests that people who are coming are coming from great distance--and since they are to be sold as slaves, transport via ship is may be the cheapest way to get them to certain slave markets.
But it should be mentioned that the descendants of Ephraim seem specifically to be prophesied to end up under Assyria rulership (German-dominated Europe) and not Egypt (so maybe Egypt is more for those of Manasseh, Judah, or other tribes; though Egypt could also be under German domination at the end, hence some of Ephraim likely will end up in Egypt):
3 "I taught Ephraim to walk, Taking them by their arms; But they did not know that I healed them. 4 I drew them with gentle cords, With bands of love, And I was to them as those who take the yoke from their neck. I stooped and fed them. 5 "He shall not return to the land of Egypt; But the Assyrian shall be his king, Because they refused to repent. (Hosea 11:3-5)
The following from Zechariah seems to be teaching that the peoples will be scattered in the directions of four winds:
18 Then I raised my eyes and looked, and there were four horns. 19 And I said to the angel who talked with me, "What are these?" So he answered me, "These are the horns that have scattered Judah, Israel, and Jerusalem." (Zechariah 1:18-19)
11 But they refused to heed, shrugged their shoulders, and stopped their ears so that they could not hear. 12 Yes, they made their hearts like flint, refusing to hear the law and the words which the Lord of hosts had sent by His Spirit through the former prophets. Thus great wrath came from the Lord of hosts. 13 Therefore it happened, that just as He proclaimed and they would not hear, so they called out and I would not listen," says the Lord of hosts. 14 "But I scattered them with a whirlwind among all the nations which they had not known. Thus the land became desolate after them, so that no one passed through or returned; for they made the pleasant land desolate." (Zechariah 7:11-14)
Other verses in the Bible (e.g. Deuteronomy 4:27; Ezekiel 5:10,12) also suggest scattering all over the world. Other verses also refer to a whirlwind effect. Here are some additional ones that suggest not only scattering but that a literal whirlwind (tornado/cyclone) may be sometimes involved:
16 You shall winnow them, the wind shall carry them away,
And the whirlwind shall scatter them;
You shall rejoice in the Lord,
And glory in the Holy One of Israel. (Isaiah 41:16)
6 For from Israel is even this:
A workman made it, and it is not God;
But the calf of Samaria shall be broken to pieces.
7 "They sow the wind,
And reap the whirlwind.
The stalk has no bud;
It shall never produce meal.
If it should produce,
Aliens would swallow it up.
8 Israel is swallowed up;
Now they are among the Gentiles
Like a vessel in which is no pleasure.
9 For they have gone up to Assyria,
Like a wild donkey alone by itself;
Ephraim has hired lovers. (Hosea 8:6-9)
The passage in Hosea 8 is clearly referring to the descendents of Israel, including Ephraim and Samaria (the USA, see Spiritual Samaritans: Old and New). Notice that they are among the Gentiles and some go to Assyria (end time Germany). There are enough references to whirlwinds and the end time descendents of Israel that it seems like one or more major tornadoes are prophesied to affect them. (For more about weather, please see the article Weather Blessings and Sorrows.)
Some few will escape captivity will go to the mountains:
16 'Those who survive will escape and be on the mountains
Like doves of the valleys,
All of them mourning,
Each for his iniquity.
17 Every hand will be feeble,
And every knee will be as weak as water. (Ezekiel 7:16-17)
Yet, notice also something from the prophets Amos and Jeremiah:
9 ‘Assemble on the mountains of Samaria; See great tumults in her midst, And the oppressed within her. 10 For they do not know to do right, ‘Says the Lord, ‘Who store up violence and robbery in their palaces.'” 11 Therefore thus says the Lord God: “An adversary shall be all around the land; He shall sap your strength from you, And your palaces shall be plundered.” 12 Thus says the Lord: “As a shepherd takes from the mouth of a lion Two legs or a piece of an ear, So shall the children of Israel be taken out Who dwell in Samaria — In the corner of a bed and on the edge of a couch! 13 Hear and testify against the house of Jacob,”Says the Lord God, the God of hosts, 14 ‘That in the day I punish Israel for their transgressions, I will also visit destruction on the altars of Bethel; And the horns of the altar shall be cut off And fall to the ground. (Amos 3:9-14)
19 They pursued us on the mountains And lay in wait for us in the wilderness (Lamentations 4:19).
The above indicates that some will be hiding in the mountains and other places in the USA while others are will be taken out of the USA (which is the prophetic Samaria--see Spiritual Samaritans: Old and New). Most of the Anglos that are not killed will be made slaves. Hiding in the mountains may protect a few for a time, but it will be few that survive that way for long. The mountains of the USA will not really be a place of protection for many--the place of protection for the Philadelphian Christians will be elsewhere (see There is a Place of Safety for the Philadelphians. Why it May Be Near Petra).
The following may give some partial information on location of some descendants:
15 "Because My people have forgotten Me,
They have burned incense to worthless idols.
And they have caused themselves to stumble in their ways,
From the ancient paths,
To walk in pathways and not on a highway,
16 To make their land desolate and a perpetual hissing;
Everyone who passes by it will be astonished
And shake his head.
17 I will scatter them as with an east wind before the enemy;
I will show them the back and not the face
In the day of their calamity." (Jeremiah 18:15-17)
If this is referring to those in the USA or UK (head of Ephraim), they may end up west, of which Europe is, as an east wind goes west (see also Who is the King of the West?).
Notice that after Jesus returns, the scattered people (identified as the outcasts of Israel, Judah, and Ephraim) will be gathered from many nations:
1 "Now it shall come to pass, when all these things come upon you, the blessing and the curse which I have set before you, and you call them to mind among all the nations where the Lord your God drives you, 2 and you return to the Lord your God and obey His voice, according to all that I command you today, you and your children, with all your heart and with all your soul, 3 that the Lord your God will bring you back from captivity, and have compassion on you, and gather you again from all the nations where the Lord your God has scattered you. 4 If any of you are driven out to the farthest parts under heaven, from there the Lord your God will gather you, and from there He will bring you. 5 Then the Lord your God will bring you to the land which your fathers possessed, and you shall possess it. He will prosper you and multiply you more than your fathers. 6 And the Lord your God will circumcise your heart and the heart of your descendants, to love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul, that you may live. 7 "Also the Lord your God will put all these curses on your enemies and on those who hate you, who persecuted you. 8 And you will again obey the voice of the Lord and do all His commandments which I command you today. (Deuteronomy 30:1-9)
10 You make us turn back from the enemy, And those who hate us have taken spoil for themselves. 11 You have given us up like sheep intended for food, And have scattered us among the nations. (Psalms 44:10-11)
7 "Therefore, behold, the days are coming," says the Lord, "that they shall no longer say, 'As the Lord lives who brought up the children of Israel from the land of Egypt,' 8 but, 'As the Lord lives who brought up and led the descendants of the house of Israel from the north country and from all the countries where I had driven them.' And they shall dwell in their own land." (Jeremiah 23:7-8)
Isaiah suggests that apparently significant numbers will end up in certain specific places:
11 It shall come to pass in that day
That the Lord shall set His hand again the second time
To recover the remnant of His people who are left,
From Assyria and Egypt,
From Pathros and Cush,
From Elam and Shinar,
From Hamath and the islands of the sea.
12 He will set up a banner for the nations,
And will assemble the outcasts of Israel,
And gather together the dispersed of Judah
From the four corners of the earth.
13 Also the envy of Ephraim shall depart,
And the adversaries of Judah shall be cut off;
Ephraim shall not envy Judah,
And Judah shall not harass Ephraim. (Isaiah 11:11-13)
Isaiah's writing above gives some clues as to who gets some of the scattered people. Lambert Greer commenting on the scattering of the Anglo and Judaic peoples in Isaiah 11:11-14 stated:
They will be scattered around the world...but the primary area is Assyria. (Greer L. The Power of Sin to Destroy. Sermon DVE 587. May 24, 2010).
And the first group Isaiah mentioned is Assyria. Assyria also seems to be from whence the King of the North descends. This would be the Germanic, and perhaps other, parts of Europe.
Egypt in Isaiah 11 is the modern land of Egypt. Pathros seems to be in the Middle East/North Africa (cf. Jeremiah 44:15). So probably because of the deceptive deal between the King of the North and the King of the South (Daniel 11:27) (which may also be related to the deal being the Arabic powers and Assyria in Psalm 83:4-8), which they both apparently never intended to keep and is broken shortly thereafter (Daniel 11:40-43), some of the people end up in the Middle East. But because the King of the North overwhelms the King of the South, it is pretty unlikely that the King of the South actually will end up with any of the lands of the Anglo-Saxon peoples for much time, if at all.
Who Isaiah 11 refers to as Cush is tricky as Cush has two lines of descent. This could possibly be related to India or Pakistan or some others near the Middle East that supported the King of the South. Since India once was considered as a British colony, and since there still are many people of British descent in India, this could be the people that Isaiah was referring to. It is not clear if India would gain much British territory, but it may be that it would be granted the naval island base Diego Garcia and much of the rest of what is called the British Indian Ocean Territory (55 islands, of which Diego Garcia is the largest).
The Bible shows that in the end, a portion of the Cushites supports the King of the South and are defeated:
He shall become ruler of the treasures of gold and of silver, and all the precious things of Egypt, and the Libyans and the Cushites shall follow in his train (Daniel 11:43, ESV).
Thus, those that Daniel 11:43 refers to would be like those in other Middle Eastern/North African lands.
Elam, who descended from Shem (Genesis 10:22), seems to be a Caucasian-descended peoples, so this also may be another part of Europe. Elam seems to possibly be composed of some of the Slavic peoples, like those in Poland and Eastern Europe (Caudhurī P. India in Kurdistan. Qwality Book Company, 2005. Original from the University of Michigan. Digitized, Aug 27, 2008, p. 77). However, some believe that these are Persians, and hence may be associated with the modern nation of Iran as there was an Elamite kingdom there--but some may have moved north. Eastern Europe seems to be a place that more of the Anglo-Saxon peoples would end up in as opposed to Iran (but some could end up in Iran).
According to the 19th century researcher George Rawlinson:
"Shinar" in Scripture is always the low country about Babylon (Rawlinson G. The origin of nations: In two parts: On early civilisations. On ethnic affinities, etc. Part 1. Scribner, 1881. Original from Harvard University, Digitized Dec 12, 2007, p. 211).
And he is correct that Shinar in scripture seems to be in the Middle East (cf. Daniel 1:2), like Iraq. Others believe that Elam and Shinar make up some of the peoples of India and Sri Lanka. If so, perhaps some people go to them. On the other hand, since Elam and Shinar tend to be mentioned together (cf. Rawlinson, p. 231; Isaiah 11:11), and they were associated with ancient Babylon, it is possible that they will be part of the final Babylon. And as suggested with Elam, perhaps their descendants became part of the slavic peoples that now occupy Eastern Europe.
Isaiah 11's reference to Hamath seems to be to an area in Lebanon.
The "islands of the sea" in Isaiah 11 seems to suggest that people will be in various islands. This likely includes some left in Australia and New Zealand, but also may include Asian lands such as Japan and Indonesia. However, it may be that the last statement in Isaiah 11:11 is referring to the islands west of Lebanon. If so, this would include such islands as Cyprus (the largest island closest to Lebanon), Sicily, Sardinia, Capri (and other Italian islands), Malta, Crete (and all the other Greek islands), Cres (and the other small Croatian islands), Majorca, Minorca, and Corsica. And since they are almost all part of the European Union, this seems to make sense.
And speaking of Asians, the following from Ezekiel and Isaiah seem to suggest that the Asians will end up with peoples, which would probably include Anglo-Saxon descended ones:
13 Javan, Tubal, and Meshech were your traders. They bartered human lives and vessels of bronze for your merchandise. 14 Those from the house of Togarmah traded for your wares with horses, steeds, and mules. (Ezekiel 27:13-14)
9 That You may say to the prisoners, 'Go forth,' To those who are in darkness, 'Show yourselves.' "They shall feed along the roads, And their pastures shall be on all desolate heights. 10 They shall neither hunger nor thirst, Neither heat nor sun shall strike them; For He who has mercy on them will lead them, Even by the springs of water He will guide them. 11 I will make each of My mountains a road, And My highways shall be elevated. 12 Surely these shall come from afar; Look! Those from the north and the west, And these from the land of Sinim. (Isaiah 49:9-12)
Tubal and Meshech are related to Russia (see Russia: Its Origins and Prophesied Future) (Meshech with Moscow and Tubal possibly with Siberia). Javan was the son of Japheth, from whom the Oriental/Mongoloid race developed (but some have identified the Greeks as Javan). Others have considered that the Japanese could have descended from one or more of Javan's sons like Elishah and perhaps Tarshish (see Japan, Its Biblical Past and Future, Part 1: Any Witness?). Islamic and other scholars have somewhat suggested that Javan may be related to China (see China, Its Biblical Past and Future, Part 1: Genesis and Chinese Characters). Yair Davidiy has written that Sinim is an ancient Phoenician and Hebrew word for Australia (Davidiy Y. Ephraim. The Gentile Children of Israel. Lulu.com, 2015, p. 103)-which in this context would include New Zealand--and notice verse 9 points to them being prisoners.
The following may suggest that those in Palestinian and Lebanese (Tyre) controlled areas may send some Jews to Turkish lands (Edom appears to be the Turkish peoples):
6 Thus says the Lord: "For three transgressions of Gaza, and for four, I will not turn away its punishment, Because they took captive the whole captivity To deliver them up to Edom...9 Thus says the Lord: "For three transgressions of Tyre, and for four, I will not turn away its punishment, Because they delivered up the whole captivity to Edom (Amos 1:6,9).
Since the Bible is clear that people will be scattered among many nations, it appears that people will end up in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia, and various islands. Perhaps it should be mentioned that since those in Latin America are often made up of mixed peoples, that some will likely end up there as well.
It should also be understood that problems for the descendants of the other 'lost tribes' of Israel is also expected. While their trial will begin AFTER those of the USA and the Anglo-Saxon descendants, it will come. Notice two prophecies, the first of which shows that the other tribes are affected later:
1 "And you, son of man, take a sharp sword, take it as a barber's razor, and pass it over your head and your beard; then take scales to weigh and divide the hair. 2 You shall burn with fire one-third in the midst of the city, when the days of the siege are finished; then you shall take one-third and strike around it with the sword, and one-third you shall scatter in the wind: I will draw out a sword after them. 3 You shall also take a small number of them and bind them in the edge of your garment. 4 Then take some of them again and throw them into the midst of the fire, and burn them in the fire. From there a fire will go out into all the house of Israel. (Ezekiel 5:1-4)
14 "Issachar is a strong donkey,
Lying down between two burdens;
15 He saw that rest was good,
And that the land was pleasant;
He bowed his shoulder to bear a burden,
And became a band of slaves. (Genesis 49:14-15)
Issachar has been identified by Church of God and Jewish sources are the current nation known as Finland. The identification of the tribes of Israel is included in the article Anglo - America in Prophecy & the Lost Tribes of Israel. Finland itself would be expected to face issues not simply from the coming European beast power, but from Russia at the time of the end when it goes against it (Jeremiah 50:41-44, see also Russia and Ukraine: Their Origins and Prophesied Future).
Who will the King of the North divide the USA/Anglo-Saxon lands with?
One of the most likely places would seem to be Mexico (who will likely be an ally of the King of the North, see Mexico, Central America, South America, and Brazil in Prophecy) as some from there have called for a "reconquista" of lands that the USA holds that were once part of Mexico (like most or all of California, Arizona, Texas, New Mexico, Nevada, Colorado). Hence, if it makes some type of military and/or agricultural deal with the King of the North, it may be repaid with some or maybe even all, of its former territories.
Because of political and economic considerations, other nations would likely wish to be involved as well.
While I believe that we need to primarily rely on prophecies from the Bible, there are predictions outside of the Bible that suggest that the Anglo-nations will be divided and scattered as well.
Those peoples involved in making them slaves may feel justified from biblical and/or non-biblical perspectives.
Notice, for example, these Catholic prophecies:
Mother Shipton (d. 1551) “The time will come when England shall tremble and quake…London shall be destroyed forever after . . . and then York shall be London and the Kingdom governed by three Lords appointed by a Royal Great monarch…who will set England right and drive out heresy (Culleton, R. Gerald. The Prophets and Our Times. Nihil Obstat: L. Arvin. Imprimatur: Philip G. Scher, Bishop of Monterey-Fresno, November 15, 1941. Reprint 1974, TAN Books, Rockford (IL), p. 163).
Saint Cataldus of Tarentino (c. 500): "The Great Monarch will be in war till he is forty years of age....he will assemble great armies and expel tyrants from his empire. He will conquer England and other island empires" (Connor E. Prophecy for Today. Imprimatur + A.J. Willinger, Bishop of Monterey-Fresno; Reprint: Tan Books and Publishers, Rockford (IL), 1984, p.30).
St. Columbine (d. 597): ...the English shall be defeated...After the English shall be defeated...they shall be harassed by every quarter; like a fawn surrounded by a pack of voracious hounds, shall be the position of the English amidst their enemies. The English afterwards shall dwindle down to a disreputable people (Culleton, pp. 131,132).
St. Senanus (d. 560): They (English) themselves will betray each other: in consequence their sovereignty will be broken...One monarch will rule in Ireland over the English (Culleton, p. 128).
Hence, at least one Catholic prophecy shows that the United Kingdom will be divided up (among Europe) and another that the English shall be harassed all over. Notice that they are to be taken over by a "Great Monarch" (who seems to be the same person as the King of the North of the Bible) and possibly be under Irish domination. According to Catholic prophecy the Great Monarch will be the leader of the revived European "Holy Roman Empire". Perhaps it should be mentioned that the nation was not known as "England" when two the above prophecies were given--hence they seem to be a reference to the Anglo-derived peoples as opposed to only the area known now as the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (which also includes Wales and Scotland).
Notice what the late Church of God leader Herbert W. Armstrong warned would happen as far back as 1948:
Thus, once this EMPIRE is revived in Europe – AND BY UNITED STATES HELP AT THAT—so gullible are we and dull of UNDERSTANDING!—the new-born Fascist-Nazi military power will without warning DESTROY AMERICAN AND BRITISH CITIES OVERNIGHT WITH ATOMIC BOMBS, conquering our peoples, taking our survivors to Europe as THEIR SLAVES! (Armstrong HW. Now it Can Be Told. The Plain Truth magazine. December 1948, p. 6)
Notice the following from Catholic sources:
Zachary the Armenian (published 1854 and summarized in 2010): And then there would be the war that the prophecy refers to as “the struggle of the strong, against the strong”. This empire of the north…will go to war against North America and North America will be fall and be conquered and brought into bondage. The next phase is the most frightful thing of all. It is then that Zachary says this text published in 1854, “and then the whole world fell under the dominion of the first born of hell.” (Originally by Priest Fattecelli, Day of Anger: The Hand of God Upon an Empire, 1854, as paraphrased by Priest P. Kramer, What are the missing contents of the third secret? Fatima Crusader, 95, Summer 2010, pp. 45-46)
North America would clearly include the USA and Canada (the above and other prophecies are in my new book, Fatima Shock! What the Vatican Does Not Want You to Know About Fatima, Dogmas of Mary, and Future Apparitions). Since it discusses the dominion of the first born son of perdition (cf. 2 Thessalonians 2:3-12), the above is clearly teaching that this would happen at the start of the Great Tribulation.
Although Russia sold Alaska to the United States in the 1800s, there have been reports that it wants it back.
Apparently, even Stalin may have wanted to regain it according to the following story:
Atlanta Journal Constitution - Aug 7, 2010 excerpt...
Nearly 60 years ago, Alexander Vitebsky was a young Soviet officer stationed in Siberia, part of a massive force assembled to try to fulfill Joseph Stalin’s dream of invading Alaska.
“It was very secretive,” said Vitebsky, who, for decades afterward, also carried a secret — he dreamed of coming to America. “We didn’t buy what we were told about America.” (http://www.ajc.com/news/atlanta/atlantas-public-housing-is-587310.html)
Notice this news story about a Russian prediction:
MOSCOW -- For a decade, Russian academic Igor Panarin has been predicting the U.S. will fall apart...Prof. Panarin, 50 years old, is not a fringe figure. A former KGB analyst, he is dean of the Russian Foreign Ministry's academy for future diplomats...
When the going gets tough, he says, wealthier states will withhold funds from the federal government and effectively secede from the union. Social unrest up to and including a civil war will follow. The U.S. will then split along ethnic lines, and foreign powers will move in.
California will form the nucleus of what he calls "The Californian Republic," and will be part of China or under Chinese influence. Texas will be the heart of "The Texas Republic," a cluster of states that will go to Mexico or fall under Mexican influence. Washington, D.C., and New York will be part of an "Atlantic America" that may join the European Union... Hawaii, he suggests, will be a protectorate of Japan or China, and Alaska will be subsumed into Russia.
"It would be reasonable for Russia to lay claim to Alaska; it was part of the Russian Empire for a long time." A framed satellite image of the Bering Strait that separates Alaska from Russia like a thread hangs from his office wall. "It's not there for no reason," he says with a sly grin. (Osborn A. As if Things Weren’t Bad Enough, Russian Professor Predicts End of U.S. Wall Street Journal, Dec 29, 2008 http://online.wsj.com/article/SB123051100709638419.html).
Now, although the Russian is not specifically predicting an attack on the USA, notice he believes that USA economic issues will likely cause it to be divided up. How he believes that the USA will be divided up is, though somewhat inaccurate, interesting none-the-less. The idea of the USA being divided up is biblically supported, and this idea apparently is starting to have a little support among certain internationalists.
Because of military and political considerations, the European King of the North might be inclined to give Russia all or parts of Alaska as well as possibly parts of Canada, as well as some people from those lands.
After Jesus returns the following will be fulfilled:
7 For thus says the Lord: "Sing with gladness for Jacob, And shout among the chief of the nations; Proclaim, give praise, and say, 'O Lord, save Your people, The remnant of Israel!' 8 Behold, I will bring them from the north country, And gather them from the ends of the earth, Among them the blind and the lame, The woman with child And the one who labors with child, together; A great throng shall return there. 9 They shall come with weeping, And with supplications I will lead them. I will cause them to walk by the rivers of waters, In a straight way in which they shall not stumble; For I am a Father to Israel, And Ephraim is My firstborn. 10 "Hear the word of the Lord, O nations, And declare it in the isles afar off, and say, 'He who scattered Israel will gather him, And keep him as a shepherd does his flock.' (Jeremiah 31:7-10)
While the 'land of the north' has to do with end time Babylonian Europe (cf. Zechariah 2:6-7), the "end of the earth" comment indicates that Russia will also have been involved. Some of the descendants of Jacob, which includes the Anglo-American nations (see Anglo – America in Prophecy & the Lost Tribes of Israel), will end up in the "ends of the earth" (this includes Russia, cf. Jeremiah 50:41) and will later be freed as Jeremiah 31 points to..
Back in 2009, I came across some interesting Chinese prophecies from the Tang Dynasty (7-10th century). Notice one Chinese prophecy might hint that it involves dividing Australia and New Zealand with Europe. It states:
Population mouth takes territories south of the Yangtze river. The capital is moved again. The two divide up the territories, of which each maintains and defends (Pui-Hua R. Ancient Chinese Prophecies Till the End of the World. AuthorHouse, Bloomington (IN), 2008, p. 164).
This may be related to a deal that perhaps the Chinese will make in the future with Europe (there are some ancient Chinese prophecies that discuss arrangements with some from the West), as opposed to military conquest. It also may not be related to the taking of Australia or New Zealand, but perhaps might be. China is now heavily invested in Australia and may argue that it has rights to the land. Furthermore, in recent years, the Chinese have been buying a lot of real estate in Australia, beyond purchases of mineral assets:
July 28, 2015
It is estimated that last year, the Chinese snapped a quarter of all new stock in Sydney and a fifth in Melbourne.
Chinese capital investments in Australia are on the rise and are expected to be boosted further by recent changes to currency regulations that make it easier for wealthy Chinese to invest in property overseas. Credit Suisse forecasts the Chinese will pump as much as A$60bn ($44.55bn) into Australian property over the next five years. http://www.bbc.com/capital/story/20150727-the-newest-chinese-obsession
Notice the following additional Chinese prophecies which tie China in with some from the West.
Beautiful people come from the West. Korea, China and Japan are gradually at peace (Pui-Hua R. Ancient Chinese Prophecies Till the End of the World. AuthorHouse, Bloomington (IN), 2008, p. 85).
All negative forces are subservient…China now has a saint. Even if he is not that great a hero (ibid, p. 89).
Germany and all of Europe are west of China. The “beautiful people” mentioned may be from the Beast and his false prophet which apparently will impress peoples in places including Asia. The “saint” will likely be “the false prophet” also known as the final Antichrist. I suspect that Satan may have inspired these Chinese prophecies so that the Chinese will one day point to them for their justification for getting involved with the Beast power of Revelation 13 (see also Satan’s Plan). The Bible says that the whole world will worship that Beast power (Revelation 13:4,8) and that would thus have to include China.
In 2016, Chinese newspaper has issued military threats and warnings to Australia:
4 August 2016
China and Australia: Claws Out for a Paper Cat
China has harsh words for Canberra’s response to the recent South China Sea ruling.
China’s Global Times … has decided that Australia is a “paper cat” …
And now the Global Times has not only suggested Australia be careful given, “Australia has inked a free trade agreement with China, its biggest trading partner, which makes its move of disturbing the South China Sea waters surprising to many.” And, more importantly, “Australia’s power means nothing compared to the security of China. If Australia steps into the South China Sea waters, it will be an ideal target for China to warn and strike.”
Essentially a state-controlled newspaper (in fact owned by the Party) is calling for a strike on Australian ships should they “step” into the South China Sea, a hysterical response to a “paper cat” and an ugly attack on a friendly nation and trading partner. http://thediplomat.com/2016/08/china-and-australia-claws-out-for-a-paper-cat/
So, let’s look at what China’s Global Times actually wrote:
‘Paper cat’ Australia will learn its lesson
Around the announcement of the arbitration tribunal over the South China Sea, Australia was one of the most delirious countries. Canberra immediately supported the arbitration result and claimed China “must” abide by it, and also signed a joint declaration with the US and Japan. Australia has inked a free trade agreement with China, its biggest trading partner, which makes its move of disturbing the South China Sea waters surprising to many.
Australia is a unique country with an inglorious history. It was at first an offshore prison of the UK and then became its colony, a source of raw materials, overseas market and land of investment. This country was established through uncivilized means, in a process filled with the tears of the aboriginals. …
Australia calls itself a principled country, while its utilitarianism has been sizzling. It lauds Sino-Australian relations when China’s economic support is needed, but when it needs to please Washington, it demonstrates willingness of doing anything in a show of allegiance.
Analysts say that besides trying to please the US, it also intends to suppress China so as to gain a bargaining chip for economic interests. China must take revenge and let it know it’s wrong. Australia’s power means nothing compared to the security of China. If Australia steps into the South China Sea waters, it will be an ideal target for China to warn and strike.
Australia is not even a “paper tiger,” it’s only a “paper cat” at best. At a time when its former caretaker country the UK is dedicated to developing relations with China, and almost the whole of Europe takes a neutral position, Australia has unexpectedly made itself a pioneer of hurting China’s interest with a fiercer attitude than countries directly involved in the South China Sea dispute. But this paper cat won’t last. http://www.globaltimes.cn/content/997320.shtml
So, China is indicating that Australia is basically illegitimate (established through uncivilized means) and that its power basically means nothing to China. Furthermore, China must take revenge and let it know it’s wrong.
And basically how?
Well, If Australia steps into the South China Sea waters, it will be an ideal target for China to warn and strike.
Additionally, economic threats were also alluded to.
This is not a surprise.
Back in 2009 when Hillary Clinton was US Secretary of State, in my book 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect, I wrote that China may take over Australia. Since I wrote that, my belief in that outcome has increased.
On June 24, 2010, the day it was announced that she became Prime Minister of Australia, I warned that I felt that Julia Gillard would take steps to fulfill prophecies that also could get the Chinese interested in taking over Australia (see Australia Now Has a Female Prime Minister: Prophetic Ramifications?).
And that happened.
On November 10, 2011, I posted the following:
The USA is getting concerned about China enough to station troops in Australia …
Relying more on a declining military power is not the answer for Australia. And even if the presence is not huge, just having US troops ‘permanently’ stationed in Australia shows more reliance by Australia on the USA’s military. …
The Australians themselves have had various concerns about China, but while they seem to feel that allowing the USA in the country in a bigger way will protect them, I have a different view. The presence of US troops in China may be used as part of its possible future justification for taking the land of Australia. The Chinese may claim something to the effect that Australia is really a military pawn/representative of the USA and thus, since the USA owes them money, taking over Australia will help settle that debt.
China is rising up and the USA is declining militarily relative to it and Europe right now. This does not bode well for the USA nor its allies like Australia. The implication for Australia is more than profound–the implications are disastrous.
The Bible suggests that the land of the Anglo-descended peoples will be conquered and divided (Daniel 11:39; Lamentations 4:16; Joel 3:2-3; Amos 7:17; Ezekiel 5:1-2,12; 6:8; Ezekiel 22:13-15; )
Without national repentance, the Australia is doomed. Period. (Thiel B. Obama Putting ‘Permanent’ Troops in Australia Because of China, But… November 10, 2011)
About a week later, the Chinese fulfilled the prediction I made on June 24, 2010:
November 17, 2011
A Marine Base for Australia Irritates China
DARWIN, Australia — Fresh from announcing an expanded American military presence in Australia, a plan that has angered China, President Obama came to this remote northern town that will be the base of operations…
The Global Times, a state-run news organization known for its nationalist and bellicose commentaries, issued a stronger reaction in an editorial, saying that Australia should be cautious about allowing the United States to use bases there to “harm China” and that it risked getting “caught in the cross-fire.” http://www.nytimes.com/2011/11/18/world/asia/obama-addresses-troops-at-final-stop-in-australia.html
Related to the above, on November 11, 2011, I posted the following:
China is rising up and the USA is declining militarily relative to it and Europe right now. This does not bode well for the USA nor its allies like Australia. The implication for Australia is more than profound–the implications are disastrous. …
Without national repentance, the Australia is doomed. Period. So is the USA. Details are in the Bible and are more specifically explained in my book 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect.
Many do not wish to accept that, either here in the USA, over in New Zealand, or in Australia, but it is the truth. These nations will be taken over, and it may be that China will control part of the land. (Thiel B. Australia accepts US troops, China not pleased. November 11, 2011)
I basically wrote the warnings about Australia, because Global Times was correct that it was originally established by the United Kingdom and became a British colony. Because of biblical prophecies to the B’rit ish, the ‘covenant people’ (for some details, watch British are the Covenant People ), I was aware that certain prophecies that show blessings and cursings to the the descendants of Joseph’s son Ephraim would impact Australia (see also Anglo – America in Prophecy & the Lost Tribes of Israel).
The Chinese, interestingly enough, got control of the port in Darwin, and some have concerns:
24 November 2015
The decision to offer a century-long lease over the Port of Darwin to a Chinese company feeds into the PRC's global strategic aims. Australia ignores this consideration at its peril, writes Geoff Wade.
The national and indeed international reactions to the Northern Territory Government's decision to offer a century-long lease over the port of Darwin to Chinese company Landbridge can be divided essentially into two camps.
The dichotomy has on one side those, such as the Trade Minister Andrew Robb and NT Chief Minister Adam Giles, who simply portray the Darwin deal as important for the economic development of northern Australia.
Those of the other side, including both Australian critics and, sotto voce, the Americans, see the deal as a more complex element in growing the People's Republic of China's (PRC) influence in Australia, which is increasingly constituting a threat to the country's independence per se and to Western interests in the South Pacific and globally.
Understanding the significance of this deal requires a much wider lens and broader context than those provided by perceived economic self-interest. China's national revival and its global economic and strategic extension over the decades since Deng Xiaoping, which Xi Jinping has rebranded as the "Chinese Dream", provide a much clearer schema in which to situate the Darwin deal.
The "Chinese Dream" involves the reassertion of the economic and political primacy that China claims it has enjoyed over neighbours for millennia. This agenda is now being pursued globally but most intensely in South-East Asia and Australia/New Zealand. ...
The Darwin deal will provide Chinese shipping and naval vessels with facilitated access to Australia, the Indian Ocean and the South Pacific, as well as to Indonesia and PNG over the coming century. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2015-11-24/wade-the-darwin-port-is-another-link-in-china's-expansion/6967640
After this, the USA and Australia began to seriously look at having long range bombers based in Australia, and China does not like it:
March 9, 2016
The United States is in talks to base long-range bombers in Australia, U.S. defense officials said, within striking distance of the disputed South China Sea, a move that could inflame tensions with China.
The deployments could include B-1 bombers and an expansion of B-52 bomber missions, said Lt. Col. Damien Pickart, a spokesman for the U.S. Air Force in the Pacific, http://www.reuters.com/article/us-southchinasea-australia-usa-idUSKCN0WB05Q
March 10, 2016
The commander of the US Pacific Air Forces, General Lori Robinson, has revealed talks had begun with the Australian government to have long-range B-1 bombers and aerial tankers regularly rotated at military bases in the Northern Territory.
In response, the Chinese foreign ministry has said such military co-operation should not target any third parties in the region.
"We are concerned at relevant reports. At the moment, the major regional trend and people's desire is to seek peace and cooperation to push forward development," said spokesman Hong Lei at a daily news briefing. http://www.sbs.com.au/news/article/2016/03/09/china-concerned-over-us-australia-bomber-talks
The Australians hope that the USA will be able to protect them, while it also increases its trade with China (see After Obama announces stronger military ties to Australia, Australia makes a trade deal with China). Yet, the presence of US troops and other weaponry in China may be used as part of its possible future justification for taking the land of Australia. The Chinese may claim something to the effect that Australia is really a military pawn/representative of the USA and thus, since the USA owes them money, taking over Australia will help settle that debt.
Events are aligning for various curses, like Australia losing its sovereignty and land (cf. Daniel 11:39; Lamentations 4:16; Joel 3:2-3; Amos 7:17; Ezekiel 5:1-2,12; 6:8; Ezekiel 22:13-15). And the Chinese threats in Global Times are proof of that.
Although I personally was unaware of it until July 14, 2016, in February 1963, the old Radio Church of God earlier warned of a threat from Asia in general, and China in particular, to Australia:
Simply because of her geographical situation, Australia is a land of opportunity. Yes, OPPORTUNITY- opportunity for the teeming masses of Asia! …
lndonesia is only ONE of Australia’s worries!
Still further to the north lies the sprawling mainland of Red China. Standing on the Baok of China, like a sentinel on the alert, is the booming, highly industrialized nation of Japan with its progressive millions!
Australia is in trouble-and doesn’t know it! (Armstrong GT. Australia’s Deadly Peril! Plain Truth, February 1963, p. 9)
What if Britain Enters the Common Market? …
Faced with this potential effecr of the Common Market-Australia has been FORCED to look hopefully toward ASIA for new and expanded outlets for its produce! …
Australia, like all of Israel, is headed toward captivity! …
Just as ancient Israel made the mistake of seeking to the Gentile nations for her protection, making pacts and treaties, instead of trusting in God-so is modern-day Israel guilty of the same sin! Australia at the present time is linked with Gentile nations as a member of SEATO, the Southeast Asian Treaty Organization. She like other nations of Israel, is looking to Gentile nations for protection from her potential enemies.
This practice God condemns. …
While the United States and Great Britain are faced with the prophesied revival of the “beast,” a union of ten powerful nations in Europe, forming the rebuilding of the ancient Roman Empire, Australia may well be taken over by an entirely different enemy! Australia, trying to populate and industrialize to stave off Communism, may become the SLAVES OF COMMUNISTS! And -make no mistake about it-aggression is actually BEING PLANNED against Australia! (Armstrong GT. Australia’s Deadly Peril! Plain Truth, February 1963, pp. 42-44)
Well, Britain did enter the old Common Market and as the 1963 article indicated, Australia has become more and more dependent upon Asian markets. Furthermore, as the 1963 article suggested, Australia is becoming vulnerable for captivity from China.
Anyway, I expect problems in Australia and its eventual loss of sovereignty. I also expect New Zealand to lose its sovereignty. Though it is likely that the USA and UK will lose theirs first (Canada too, will lose its sovereignty).
Notice also the following:
Pacific grim: Australia torn between US and China
30 August 2016
China has rebuked Australia for opposing its military build-up in the South China Sea. Australia has blocked Chinese investment bids, ostensibly on national security grounds. A Chinese newspaper denounced Australia as a "paper cat that won't last". Even the countries' Olympians are fighting with one another. ...
While the US has been Australia's main ally in the Asia-Pacific since World War Two, China has been central to the country's prosperity and its weathering of two global recessions.
But the balancing act which Australia has managed to perform has grown increasingly tricky of late. The US has switched its focus to the Asia-Pacific just as China asserts sovereignty over much of the South China Sea.
Last month, Beijing accused the US, Australia and Japan of "fanning the flames" of regional tensions, after the three issued a forthright statement urging China to respect an international court ruling rejecting those claims. ...
And although Australia signed a free trade agreement with China last year, there is growing popular antipathy to Chinese ownership of Australian agricultural land and real estate. ...
China's official Xinhua news agency warned in an English-language editorial that the Ausgrid knockback could lead to "a toxic mindset of China-phobia", adding: "To suggest that China would try to kidnap the country's electricity network for ulterior motives is absurd and almost comical." http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-37211357
For many reasons, Australia will mainly remain an ally of the USA, and this will continue to upset the Chinese. Watch also the video Are Chinese threats against Australia for real?
German Chancellor Angela Merkel has made many trips to China (see, for example, Germany's Merkel in China: A Prelude to Daniel 11:39?), and I wonder if a German leader will make a deal to give Australia and New Zealand to some of the Asians.
Consider also the following:
Japan is a major bilateral and regional partner of New Zealand and one of New Zealand’s anchor trading relationships. Japan is New Zealand’s fourth largest trading partner (after Australia the United States and China) http://www.nzibf.co.nz/index.asp?pageID=2145856139
New Zealand has ties to Japan and China. Some in New Zealand seem to hope that being somewhat neutral with weaker ties to the USA than Australia will save them--that will prove to be an error.
Scripturally, Asians seem to be involved with the dividing up and selling of people in the future (Ezekiel 27:12-14). Since Australia and New Zealand are the closest of the Anglo-Saxon descended nations to Asia, they seem to be possible candidates to be taken over by the Asians.
Furthermore, notice the following Catholic prophecy:
American Catholic Prophecy (c. early 20th century): The yellow hordes of the Rising Sun and the middle kingdom will pour out their wrath on the people of the island kingdom which had gathered riches through trade (Dupont, Catholic Prophecy: The Coming Chastisement. TAN Books, Rockford (IL), 1973, p. 78).
Australia and New Zealand are island nations that have gained riches through trade. Since the USA owes Japan (the "land of the rising sun") and China (the "middle kingdom") massive amounts of money, it may be since Australia and New Zealand will be allies of the USA and UK, that Europe will give Australia over to China (and/or others in Asia) and New Zealand over to Japan (and/or others in Asia) to help satisfy the USA/UK debt. Both China and Japan have longed for more land and the proximity of the island nations of Australia and New Zealand to the Asian powers seems to make this a likely scenario. The fact that Australia has about 78% as much land as China and New Zealand about 71% of the land of Japan make them interesting candidates for takeover.
Interestingly, Australians are starting to wonder about problems with China:
“ALMOST half of Australians believe that China will become a military threat to Australia within 20 years,” according to a recent Lowy Institute poll. While most Australians appreciate the economic benefits of a relationship with China, most believe that their government has allowed too much Chinese investment in Australia. A majority also feel China’s goal is to dominate the Asian region. The survey revealed that Australians “were positive about China's economic growth but fearful of its military aims” (The Courier-Mail, May 31, 2010).
According to The Sydney Morning Herald, “China has detonated an economic bombshell on the eve of the Prime Minister’s drive to sell the carbon tax, warning Australia has a ‘dual-speed and patchwork economy’ and relies too heavily on Beijing’s demand for minerals.” (July 7, 2011, p.2).
The Australians themselves have had various concerns about China. In late 2011, the Australians made a deal to allow the USA to station "permanent troops" in their country (see Obama Putting ‘Permanent’ Troops in Australia Because of China, But…). The presence of US troops in China may also be used as part of China's possible future justification for taking the land of Australia. The Chinese may claim something to the effect that Australia is really a military pawn/representative of the USA and thus, since the USA owes them money, taking over Australia will help settle that debt. But like the other Anglo-lands, those of Australia will experience captivity by gentile nations at the end of the age (Amos 5:3; Deuteronomy 28:41-50).
Not completely satisfied with only USA protection (which will fail), the Australians have tried to make deals with India (that will also fail; cf. Lamentations 1:1-2):
July 1, 2014
Australia and India are deepening military ties and reviving the spirit of a controversial four-way democratic coalition with Japan and the United States, in response to growing concerns about China. http://www.smh.com.au/world/australia-and-india-to-strengthen-military-ties-20140701-zss9o.html#ixzz36d6ll20
Australians are concerned about China. But its military steps will not be adequate--it would need to nationally repent.
Since it is a European-led force will take over the USA, the following development suggests that perhaps Europe may be inclined to give China something (like land) in the future as Germany and China are taking steps toward closer ties:
BEIJING -- China and Germany Wednesday pledged to strengthen bilateral military ties. The pledge came out of a meeting between Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping and visiting German Federal Minister of Defence Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg...
The Chinese government attaches great importance to relations with Germany and will, as always, deal with it from a strategic, long-term point of view, Xi said. (China, Germany agree to further develop military ties. Xinhua - Nov 3, 2010. http://news.xinhuanet.com/english2010/china/2010-11/03/c_13589422.htm)
German Chancellor Angela Merkel will embark on her seventh visit to China this weekend...Under her leadership, Germany and China have forged strong business and political ties. (http://www.dnaindia.com/world/report-angel-merkel-to-visit-china-for-the-seventh-time-on-july-6-1999813)
The other reason that one of the above is of interest is that there is a possibility that Karl-Theodor Guttenberg might become, or at least support, the final King of the North (please see the following article for more details Might German Baron Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg become the King of the North?).
God gave some instructions to Ezekiel:
1 And you, son of man, take a sharp sword, take it as a barber's razor, and pass it over your head and your beard; then take scales to weigh and divide the hair. 2 You shall burn with fire one-third in the midst of the city, when the days of the siege are finished; then you shall take one-third and strike around it with the sword, and one-third you shall scatter in the wind: I will draw out a sword after them. 3 You shall also take a small number of them and bind them in the edge of your garment. 4 Then take some of them again and throw them into the midst of the fire, and burn them in the fire. From there a fire will go out into all the house of Israel. (Ezekiel 5:1-4)
So, the three thirds were not full thirds.
How many are the small number of hairs and those that survive the being divided?
The Bible points to one tenth surviving:
3 For thus says the Lord God: "The city that goes out by a thousand Shall have a hundred left, And that which goes out by a hundred Shall have ten left to the house of Israel." (Amos 5:3)
10 "Make the heart of this people dull, And their ears heavy, And shut their eyes; Lest they see with their eyes, And hear with their ears, And understand with their heart, And return and be healed." 11 Then I said, "Lord, how long?" And He answered: "Until the cities are laid waste and without inhabitant, The houses are without a man, The land is utterly desolate, 12 The Lord has removed men far away, And the forsaken places are many in the midst of the land. 13 But yet a tenth will be in it, And will return and be for consuming, As a terebinth tree or as an oak, Whose stump remains when it is cut down. So the holy seed shall be its stump." (Isaiah 6:10-13)
So, only one tenth will survive.
The Bible is clear that the lands of the United States and apparently its final military allies (like the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and perhaps New Zealand) will be taken over and divided by the final European Beast power, also known as the King of the North. The Anglo-Saxon descended peoples (including many who live among them) that survive will be scattered among the nations.
Because of debt, military pressures, political and other interests, precisely how each nation will be divided is not entirely clear. Yet, both biblical and non-biblical prophecies suggest that Europe will take advantage of their military conquests and many of the people that survive their attack (and do not die from famine or pestilences) will become slaves. Selling human beings is part of the merchandise of the end time Babylon (Revelation 18:10-13). Notice the following excerpts:
10...Babylon...11 And the merchants of the earth... 12 merchandise of gold and silver, precious stones and pearls, fine linen and purple, silk and scarlet, every kind of citron wood, every kind of object of ivory, every kind of object of most precious wood, bronze, iron, and marble; 13 and cinnamon and incense, fragrant oil and frankincense, wine and oil, fine flour and wheat, cattle and sheep, horses and chariots, and bodies and souls of men.
13 And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men. (Revelation 18:13, KJV)
Sold people are usually considered to be slaves. Slaves that will be end up in many nations around the world. This clearly includes Europe, Asia, North Africa, and islands. It likely will include much of the rest of the world as well.
Without national repentance, this will happen relatively soon. And since national repentance does not seem likely at this time, the Anglo-Saxon descended nations are doomed.
Amos makes it clear that a sinful nation will be destroyed and its people scattered:
8 "Behold, the eyes of the Lord God are on the sinful kingdom, And I will destroy it from the face of the earth; Yet I will not utterly destroy the house of Jacob," Says the Lord. 9 "For surely I will command, And will sift the house of Israel among all nations, As grain is sifted in a sieve; Yet not the smallest grain shall fall to the ground. (Amos 9:8-9)
Amos 9:10 makes it clear that those who overlook these prophecies will suffer:
10 All the sinners of My people shall die by the sword, Who say, 'The calamity shall not overtake nor confront us.' (Amos 9:10)
But although many will be killed, this scattering and captivity will end:
47 Save us, O Lord our God, And gather us from among the Gentiles...(Psalms 106:47)
11 For I am with you,' says the Lord, 'to save you; Though I make a full end of all nations where I have scattered you, Yet I will not make a complete end of you. But I will correct you in justice, And will not let you go altogether unpunished.' (Jeremiah 30:11)
10 "Hear the word of the Lord, O nations, And declare it in the isles afar off, and say, 'He who scattered Israel will gather him, And keep him as a shepherd does his flock.' 11 For the Lord has redeemed Jacob, And ransomed him from the hand of one stronger than he. (Jeremiah 31:10-11)
16 Therefore say, 'Thus says the Lord God: "Although I have cast them far off among the Gentiles, and although I have scattered them among the countries, yet I shall be a little sanctuary for them in the countries where they have gone."' 17 Therefore say, 'Thus says the Lord God: "I will gather you from the peoples, assemble you from the countries where you have been scattered, and I will give you the land of Israel."' 18 And they will go there, and they will take away all its detestable things and all its abominations from there. 19 Then I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within them, and take the stony heart out of their flesh, and give them a heart of flesh, 20 that they may walk in My statutes and keep My judgments and do them; and they shall be My people, and I will be their God. (Ezekiel 11:16-21)
33 "As I live," says the Lord God, "surely with a mighty hand, with an outstretched arm, and with fury poured out, I will rule over you. 34 I will bring you out from the peoples and gather you out of the countries where you are scattered, with a mighty hand, with an outstretched arm, and with fury poured out. 35 And I will bring you into the wilderness of the peoples, and there I will plead My case with you face to face. 36 Just as I pleaded My case with your fathers in the wilderness of the land of Egypt, so I will plead My case with you," says the Lord God. (Ezekiel 20:33-36)
25 "I will make a covenant of peace with them, and cause wild beasts to cease from the land; and they will dwell safely in the wilderness and sleep in the woods. 26 I will make them and the places all around My hill a blessing; and I will cause showers to come down in their season; there shall be showers of blessing. 27 Then the trees of the field shall yield their fruit, and the earth shall yield her increase. They shall be safe in their land; and they shall know that I am the Lord, when I have broken the bands of their yoke and delivered them from the hand of those who enslaved them. 28 And they shall no longer be a prey for the nations, nor shall beasts of the land devour them; but they shall dwell safely, and no one shall make them afraid. 29 I will raise up for them a garden of renown, and they shall no longer be consumed with hunger in the land, nor bear the shame of the Gentiles anymore. 30 Thus they shall know that I, the Lord their God, am with them, and they, the house of Israel, are My people," says the Lord God.'" (Ezekiel 34:13-30)
21 "Then say to them, 'Thus says the Lord God: "Surely I will take the children of Israel from among the nations, wherever they have gone, and will gather them from every side and bring them into their own land; 22 and I will make them one nation in the land, on the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king over them all; they shall no longer be two nations, nor shall they ever be divided into two kingdoms again. 23 They shall not defile themselves anymore with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions; but I will deliver them from all their dwelling places in which they have sinned, and will cleanse them. Then they shall be My people, and I will be their God. 24 "David My servant shall be king over them, and they shall all have one shepherd; they shall also walk in My judgments and observe My statutes, and do them. (Ezekiel 37:21-24)
22 The punishment of your iniquity is accomplished, O daughter of Zion; He will no longer send you into captivity. (Lamentations 4:22)
The passages from Ezekiel were never fulfilled by the Jews returning to the Middle East. It is a prophecy for the future. And it will come to pass.
Assyria apparently will be punished for its role as well as those involved in Egypt:
6 "I will strengthen the house of Judah, And I will save the house of Joseph. I will bring them back, Because I have mercy on them. They shall be as though I had not cast them aside; For I am the Lord their God, And I will hear them. 7 Those of Ephraim shall be like a mighty man, And their heart shall rejoice as if with wine. Yes, their children shall see it and be glad; Their heart shall rejoice in the Lord. 8 I will whistle for them and gather them, For I will redeem them; And they shall increase as they once increased. 9 "I will sow them among the peoples, And they shall remember Me in far countries; They shall live, together with their children, And they shall return. 10 I will also bring them back from the land of Egypt, And gather them from Assyria. I will bring them into the land of Gilead and Lebanon, Until no more room is found for them. 11 He shall pass through the sea with affliction, And strike the waves of the sea: All the depths of the River shall dry up. Then the pride of Assyria shall be brought down, And the scepter of Egypt shall depart. (Zechariah 10:6-11)
Notice that the house of Judah AND the house of Joseph (Ephraim and Manasseh, the Anglo-American nations) will have been captured.
Also notice that the Gentiles will later learn why the Anglo-Saxon peoples went into captivity:
23 The Gentiles shall know that the house of Israel went into captivity for their iniquity; because they were unfaithful to Me, therefore I hid My face from them. I gave them into the hand of their enemies, and they all fell by the sword. 24 According to their uncleanness and according to their transgressions I have dealt with them, and hidden My face from them."'
25 "Therefore thus says the Lord God: 'Now I will bring back the captives of Jacob, and have mercy on the whole house of Israel; and I will be jealous for My holy name — 26 after they have borne their shame, and all their unfaithfulness in which they were unfaithful to Me, when they dwelt safely in their own land and no one made them afraid. 27 When I have brought them back from the peoples and gathered them out of their enemies' lands, and I am hallowed in them in the sight of many nations, 28 then they shall know that I am the Lord their God, who sent them into captivity among the nations, but also brought them back to their land, and left none of them captive any longer..." (Ezekiel 39:23-28)
Notice also when the captives essentially gain their freedom from Assyria and Egypt:
13 So it shall be in that day:
The great trumpet will be blown;
They will come, who are about to perish in the land of Assyria,
And they who are outcasts in the land of Egypt,
And shall worship the Lord in the holy mount at Jerusalem. (Isaiah 27:13)
The Bible is clear that the good news is that Jesus will return with the sound of a trumpet (1 Corinthians 15:52; 1 Thessalonians 4:16) and call for the return of the Anglo-Saxon peoples and others who were made slaves. Christ will establish His millennial kingdom and the world, including the Anglo-Saxon peoples, will be able to live in peace and prosperity.
But before that, severe times await the Anglo-Saxon descended peoples. They will be taken over militarily, many of the survivors will be made slaves, and the land will be divided among nations to prosper the coming final King of the North.
