What Christ is Revealing About “The Balm of Gilead” Today and 
How it Still Applies to This Apocalypse Generation

July 8, 2018

I have set aside the Commentary that I was working on which gave an overwhelming amount of evidence that demands a verdict from Christ’s Word  of who “THE BEAST” is according to what Christ REVEALED to Daniel and John in their visions and what Christ had them prophesy in the Books of Daniel and The Book of Revelation.  That Commentary also proves through many Scriptures that Christ is the one who has ALREADY invisibly marked everyone who has ever lived on this Earth with either His “MARK OF SALVATION” or “THE MARK OF THE BEAST” – and that a Future Antichrist will NOT Mark anyone.

But rest assured that I haven’t abandoned that Commentary.  For those are extremely important topics to be writing on today with the Return of Christ so near -- and hopefully I will finish it and send it out next – but for now I decided instead to send this Commentary which is what I just recently wrote in an email to a dear Christian friend of mine in Scotland.  And it describes what Christ has REVEALED to me in His Word about the Great Tribulation that we are in TODAY and how it relates to “The Balm of Gilead.”

That may sound like an odd topic – but trust me when I say that Christ is the one who put the idea to write on this topic in my mind and on my heart -- as I can TRUTHFULLY say that He is the author of ALL of my Commentaries.  And because I always follow His lead -- I postponed sending the other commentary until next time to publish this one instead because He has put a passion on my heart to write it for Him. 

Hopefully it will rally any Christian who is reading it to stand up for Christ’s Word and His Honor in these End-Times because the Final Day of Judgment is right on the Horizon.  And sadly the world of Christendom needs rallying today for far too many Professed Christians have become more like the “Lukewarm” and Apostate Christians that Christ REVEALED to John that He would spit out of His mouth at His Return recorded in John’s 1st vision in Revelation 3:16-18. 

And CLEARLY -- the “apostasy” of today is the #1 SIGN that Christ gave of His Return and it’s just want we read of God’s people of Israel in Elijah’s day and pretty much all throughout the Bible.  For sadly – God’s people have more often than NOT been notorious for being unfaithful to Him and APOSTATE.

It is certainly because there was so much Apostasy in Elijah’s Day among God’s people that Christ used Elijah to rally the Israelites back to Him again.  For other than Elijah – there were no longer any True Prophets of Christ speaking in His name for the Israelites had become more like the 450 False Prophets who worked for King Ahab and wicked Queen Jezebel.  In other words – MOST of Israel from their King and Queen on down were committing SPIRITUAL IDOLATRY in their worship of False gods and NOT the one True God of the Universe. 

And because of Israel’s SPIRITUAL IDOLATRY at the time of Elijah -- King Ahab has been remembered as one of Israel’s most wicked Kings.  And we read that was Christ Himself who wanted them ALL to know that HE was the one TRUE GOD that was in the Land – NOT Ahab and Jezebel’s 450 False Prophets of Baal.  

But sadly the Israelite’s reaction to Elijah’s question was just what I would expect from Apostate Christians today.  For when Elijah asked them to take a stand for the God they supported – it obviously wasn’t  the True God of Israel who we now know is JESUS CHRIST.  And so they said NOTHING in response to Elijah’s plea to rally – UNBELIEABLE!!!

I have been very fortunate in my lifetime to stand on the same spot on Mount Carmel twice now where Elijah stood before my husband died and I wasn’t living in poverty like I am today trying to get by on S.S. and not much other financial help.  For I have given up a career and most of the material comforts of this world to write these Commentaries for Christ over the last 20 years and I wouldn’t be able to afford to travel to the area where Elijah stood on Carmel these days. 

But fortunately I was at least at one time in my life able to have seen the Land where the Old Testament people of God lived and where Christ walked during His ministry on Earth.  And I was truly blessed to have also stood on Mount Carmel where Elijah stood when he was so filled with the Holy Spirit to be used by Christ to rally the people back to Him again.   And each time that I stood on that same spot as Elijah did – it was as if Christ’s Holy Spirit was impressing upon my heart and mind that someday He was going to use me to rally His people the same way that He had used Elijah. 

And I only pray that my Commentaries have been instrumental to Christ in rallying at least some of His people back to Him again to be more faithful to His Word about these End-Times.  But sadly these times are not much different than Elijah’s time on Earth when the Bible tells us that when Elijah stood on Mount Carmel that even though he boldly said these words for Christ -- that the Apostasy was so great that the people didn’t have much enthusiasm for Christ AT ALL when we read Elijah saying:

“How long will you falter between two opinions?  If the Lord is God, follow Him; but if Baal (is God then), follow him.” But the people answered him NOT a word.” (1st Kings 18:20 –19:18)  HONESTLY – it’s just UNBELIEVABLE that there wasn’t even ONE person who responded to Elijah’s plea to rally.

But HONESTLY – I can relate to how Elijah must have felt when the people said NOTHING because again the Apostasy is just as great today as it was in Elijah’s day and it is truly heartbreaking for me to witness that apostasy – even as much as it is to watch the EVIL that is spreading all around the Globe like wildfire today.  And the reason why “apostasy” is so hard for me to watch – is because for someone who loves Christ as much as I do “apostasy” is certainly right up there with the worst of all sins being committed against Christ today. 

For “apostasy” is generally defined as the determined and willful rejection of Christ and His teachings by a Professed Christian believer – NOT an atheist or a NON-BELIVER – but a Professed Christian Believer!!!  In other words – “apostasy” is someone who is ANTICHRIST – NOT Pro-Christ – but clearly AT WAR with Christ and His Word.  THINK ABOUT IT!!!  For that should ring true and sound familiar as we can see “apostasy” everywhere present today.  

CLEARLY -- “falling away from the faith” is Christendom’s worst sin today – NOT unsaved Mankind’s sin -- for atheists and agnostics have NO FAITH from which to fall away from.  And lest we forget – the #1 SIGN that Christ gave that would signal His 2nd Coming in JUDGMENT was “SPIRITUAL DECLENSION” and “apostasy.”  For Christ prophesied that we True Prophets of His would know when His 2nd Coming was near because of the “great falling away from the faith” when “MANY False Prophets would come in His Name claiming to speak for Him who would only be masquerading as His True Prophets much like the Pharisees and the Sadducees were doing at His 1st Coming. 

And certainly today there are MANY Professed Christians who are clearly being DECEIVED by Satan in thinking that they are somehow serving Christ when what they are doing is WARRING against Christ and His True Eschatology about THE RAPTURE and His 2nd Coming by their standing up for Man’s False Eschatology.

In other words – by their being AT WAR with Christ they are NOT Pro-Christ but part of the multitude of Antichrists in Satan’s Army who are AT WAR with Christ now about His 2nd Coming just like the Pharisees and Sadducees were AT WAR with Christ about His 1st Coming.   And they might as well be yelling “Crucify Him – Crucify Him” all over again – for that is what they are doing to Christ when they REFUSE to accept His True Eschatology. 

Eschatology is the study of the Millennial Kingdom of Christ and His DIVINE PLAN concerning the Final Events of History.  And if I’m not mistaken – Christ’s DIVINE PLAN includes what He prophesied will happen at THE RAPTURE and His 2ndComing.  And being AT WAR with Christ on these two extremely important topics is a War that the 21st Century Pharisees and Sadducees will NEVER WIN!!!

HONESTLY -- I just don’t know what Christ can do to light a FIRE in the hearts of His people today – for He is ALREADY sending one SIGN after another to PROVE that “He is in the Land” just like He did with the 10 Plagues in Moses’ Day and just like He did on Mount Carmel in Elijah’s Day -- and certainly like He did with the miracles that He performed in His Day.  And I just pray that in this Commentary that I can rally as many True Prophets of Christ as I can just like Elijah did in his day – for Heaven only knows that Christ He is using every department of the Universe including the weather and the fulfillment of Scripture each and every day now to show us “that He is in the Land.” 

Since John penned The Book of Revelation for Christ – the 1st 4 of the Last 7 Plagues have been intensifying to show us that Christ Himself is sending out these last 7 Plagues as Judgments on those who are part of Satan’s Kingdom.

But sadly – just like in Elijah’s Day God’s people are SILENT and are saying NOTHING!!!  For even with weather disasters of Biblical proportions happening on a daily basis now – God’s people are just NOT rallying to His side AT ALL and believing what He prophesied about us having to go through a time of Great Tribulation as a prelude to His 2nd Coming.  THINK ABOUT IT!!!  For whether we rally or NOT – Christ’s DIVINE PLAN will be fulfilled.

How “the Balm of Gilead” Figures in Today

CLEARLY – what God’s people need to understand today is the TRUE meaning of “the Balm of Gilead” which was a LITERAL medicine that was meant to HEAL the Israelites in the Old Testament Days.  But clearly what so many even Professed Christians don’t realize today is that Christ also used “the Balm of Gilead” as a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE that was meant to convey the Prophecy of the Messiah.  In other words -- that the healing that came from “the balm of Gilead” through a flowering plant only foreshadowed the TRUE HEALING that would come through SALVATION!!! 

First it needs to be REVEALED that the “Balm of Gilead” has three references in the Bible – and that in Genesis 37:25 it is first referenced when the brothers of Joseph were contemplating how to kill poor Joseph and a caravan of Ishmaelite men passed by on their way to Egypt fromGilead.   And in their cargo were “spices – balm -- and myrrh” -- with the “Balm of Gilead” being a high-quality ointment with healing properties. 

The Bible doesn’t tell us much about this “Balm of Gilead” except that we know that it was used as a “healing balm” and was made from resin taken from a flowering plant in the Middle East.  And although the exact species of the plan or flower is unknown – we know that it was also called the “balsam of Mecca” too -- so that meant that it was a well known spice and flower in the Old Testament Days.  And that “Myrrh” -- which we know more about -- is also taken from a similar plant by the name of Commiphora myrrha. 

But clearly – besides it’s LITERAL healing properties -- the Bible also uses the term “the balm of Gilead” metaphorically as an example of something with healing or soothing powers.  And we know that the prophecy of the Messiah was THE ONE who was to come with “healing in His Wings.”  So what Christ was doing was painting a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE with “the balm of Gilead” to convey a CRYPTIC MESSAGE that He was Himself the True “Balm of Gilead” for His people as we read in Malachi Chapters 3 and 4:

“Behold, I send My messenger, and he will prepare the way before Me.  And the Lord, whom you seek, will suddenly come to His temple, even the Messenger of the covenant, in whom you delight.  Behold, He is coming,” says the Lord of hosts.” (Mal. 3:1) . . . . . and then we read: “But unto you that fear My Name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in His wingsand ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall." (Malachi 4:2)

CLEARLY – Christ fulfilled these prophecies – for He was the ONE or “the true balm of Gilead” who came with “healing in His wings”to save those of us 1/3 Remnant of the world’s population that He had decided to save even before the foundation of the world.   

And according to Christ’s True Eschatology He is coming back again VERY SOON – only this time there will be a CONSUMMATION of His ALREADY inaugurated Millennial Kingdom and Deliverance for His people.  But there will also be JUDGMENT for Satan’s people which just happens to be 2/3 of the world’s population according to what Christ REVEALED to Zechariah recorded in Zechariah 13:8-9. 

And that’s why we see so many people today who are against Christ and are AT WAR with Him and His Word.  For clearly – the 2/3 of the World’s population that Christ REVEALED to Zechariah who were NOT saved are the ANTICHRISTS in Satan’s Army today who are in the Final Rebellion that is being led by SATAN around the Globe right now.  And it is this Final Rebellion led by Satan against Christ and us True Prophets of Christ that is causing today’s prophesied time of Great Tribulation.

And what Christ has impressed upon my heart when I was praying and listening to Him speak to me about these End-Times – is that what His people need to hear is what He has taught us about  “the balm of Gilead” -- that He is has ALREADY come with “healing in His wings” to save us the 1st time and that He is Coming again soon.  But that 1st what we True Prophets of His living in these last of the LAST DAYS need to understand is that there is NO turning back now – for we have reached a point of NO RETURN when Christ is going to bring Satan’s SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” down in ruins. 

In other words – Satan has been LOOSED along with his 200 MILLION DEMONS and there’s just no putting them back into HELL again!!!  And that means that we 21st Century Apocalypse Generation are today clearly going to witness the Final Events in the History of this Human Race which include THE RAPTURE and the 2nd Coming of Christ.  But 1st we must endure this prophesied time of Great Tribulation when Satan is waging the Final Spiritual Battle against those of us in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem.”

“Armageddon and the Gog and Magog War” is Man at War with Christ and His Word

According to Christ and His Word and True Eschatology of these End-Times -- the Final Spiritual Battle of Good and Evil and TRUTH AND LIES that Christ had John call by the CRYPTIC LANGUAGE of “Armageddon” and the “Gog and Magog Battle” which are one and the same Final Spiritual Battle -- is being waged RIGHT NOW TODAY whether Professed Christians want to accept that TRUTH or not. 

And this Final Spiritual battle is taking place between the False Prophets of Satan where Satan has now taken his seat as “THE ANTICHRIST” in the External Global Harlot Church – and us True Prophets of Christ in Christ’s True Eternal Universal Church on Earth.

In other words – according to Christ’s True Eschatology “Armageddon” and “the Gog and Magog” Battle is being fought between the False Prophets in League with Satan in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” waging WAR against Christ and us True Prophets in League with Him in His SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem.”  And that means that it is just NOT a Future War that will be fought over the Land of Jerusalem in the Middle East as World Renowned Bible Prophecy Experts teach relentlessly. 

For that is Man’s False Eschatology and according to Christ’s True Eschatology He is NOT coming back to PHYSICALLY reign in Jerusalem for a 1000 years because Jerusalem is going to be destroyed along with all the other cities on this sin-cursed Earth at His soon 2nd Coming.

And CLEARLY -- the 7 Plagues that Christ has been pouring out since John penned the Book of Revelation for Him have been the 7 Seal Judgments and the 7 Trumpet Judgments and the 7 Bowl Judgments which are REVEALED in the 7 parallel visions of The Book of Revelation that John saw directed at Satan’s False Prophets – NOT at us True Prophets of Christ.

And while Christ REVEALED to John in his 7 Visions that these last 7 Plague Judgments go from partial to complete all the while growing in intensity – Christ NEVER prophesied that we True Prophets of His would be RAPTURED before the 7 Plagues would be poured out.  ON THE CONTRARY – Christ REVEALED to John and had him prophesy that we True Prophets of Christ would be here to the very LAST DAY when the Final 7th Trumpet is sounded and the last 7th Seal is opened and the Last 7th Plague which is the 7th Bowl Judgment and the 3rd WOE is poured out – REALLY!!! 

CLEARLY -- it is mostly Dispensational Pre-Millennialists who have bought THE LIE of a Pre-Trib Rapture prophesy which teaches that NONE of the New Testament Church will have to witness any of the Last 7 Plagues being poured out.  For they erroneously teach that the Last 7 Plagues will KILL over half of the 7.6 BILLION people living on Earth today which is ABSURD given THE TRUTH that Christ explicitly prophesied that He will come as “a thief in the night” and that the 2/3 of the unsaved population of the world will be “taken by surprise” at His 2ndComing.  And how could ANYONE “be taken by surprise” if over 3 BILLION people are DEAD having been killed by 7 horrendous Plagues???!!!  THINK ABOUT IT!!!

Needless to say -- I will prove that we True Prophets of Christ will be here on Earth throughout the pouring out of the Last 7 Plagues in more detail in my next Commentary.  But for now – suffice it to say that it is getting more OBVIOUS with each passing day that Christ has ALREADY poured out ALL but the Last 7th Plague which is the LAST 3RD WOE and has ALREADY LOOSED Satan as His instrument of Judgment to fight the Final Spiritual Battle. 

CLEARLY -- the 1st 2 WOES are the 5th and 6th Bowl Judgments of SPIRITUAL BLINDNESS.  And that is important to understand – for the SPIRITUAL WAR between Satan and his False Prophets and us True Prophets of Christ is heating up proving that there is tremendous ENMITY between these 2 groups of the World’s population and most people don’t understand WHY because they have been BLINDED by Satan to believe Man’s False Eschatology instead of THE TRUTH of Christ’s True Eschatology.    

HONESTLY -- the hard cold reality of this Final Battle that is called by the CRYPTIC LANGUAGE of “Armageddon” – is NOT that the LITERAL City of Jerusalem needs defending today -- but that the SPIRITUAL CITY of Jerusalem needs defending.  For it is this SPIRITUAL CITY where all of us True Prophets of Christ exist in our saved soul existence on Earth that is being attacked by Satan and His False Prophets.  And we have to decide if we are Pro-Christ and for His DIVINE PLAN of DEFEATING Satan and his Army of False Prophets and their LIES – or part of the ANTICHRISTS in Satan’s Army of “Magog.”

And GOD FORBID that Professed Christians are AT WAR with Christ and His Word about these End-Times – for it is a war they will NEVER WIN!!!  For clearly -- being AT WAR with Christ and His Words about THE RAPTURE and His 2nd Coming is being Antichrist and in League with SATAN -- and it will NOT end well AT ALL for anyone who is NOT Pro-Christ but Antichrist!!!

Sadly -- the “so called” World Renowned Bible Prophecy Experts of today are leading MILLIONS UPON MILLIONS of Professed Christians astray when they are no different than the False Prophets of Jeremiah and Ezekiel and Daniel’s day.  And those False Prophets of Jeremiah’s day that Christ had Jeremiah speak out against later became the Pharisees and the Sadducees who were STILL fighting AGAINST CHRIST and His Words when He began His Ministry in the 1st Century.  AND SO IT GOES TODAY!!!  For the Esteemed Religious Leaders are still fighting against Christ today in the 21st Century.

CLEARLY -- the Priests of Israel had NOT learned anything from their Babylonian Captivity.  And neither have our “so called” World Renowned Bible Prophecy Experts of today – for they are every bit as much AT WAR with Christ and His Word about His 2nd Coming as the Pharisees and the Sadducees were AT WAR with Christ about His 1st Coming.  But all of their made up False Eschatology is NEVER going to be fulfilled no matter how sincerely they believe in it.

Christ’s Divine Plan Does Not  include Saving 13-16 Million Jews in Jerusalem and  around the World  -- Nor does it include Returning to Reign from Jerusalem For 1000 years in the Future

HONESTLY -- Christ is just NOT coming back to save the 13-16 MILLION JEWS in Jerusalem and around the world who still do NOT believe to this DAY that He was the Messiah who came.  For clearly Salvation was decided by Christ before the foundation of the world and if Christians don’t know the difference between “the saved Jews of the Spirit” and “the unsaved Jews of the Flesh” by now  --then they just don’t understand what Salvation means AT ALL – REALLY!!! 

For Christ NEVER chose to save ALL of the people of this World – not even in the Old Testament Days.  But ONLY A REMNANT out of every Nation were chosen to be saved by Christ.  And that saving was done before the foundation of the World according to Christ’s TRUTH in His Word about Salvation.

And it just can’t be reiterated enough that Christ used the prophecy that He gave to Zechariah to explain who “the saved Jews of the Spirit” were and who “the unsaved Jews of the Flesh” were recorded in Zechariah 13:8-9.  For what Christ REVEALED in this extremely important prophecy that He gave to Zechariah -- is that He had chosen to save only a REMNANT 1/3 of the World’s population. 

And He prophesied through Zechariah that He Himself would bring that Remnant 1/3 of the World’s population through the trials and tribulations of this World and that they would be HIS CHOSEN PEOPLE and would make up His Holy Nation of the Israel of God.  And clearly – the “saved Jews of the Spirit” have now been brought out of EVERY Nation on Earth by Christ and we are existing now in our “saved soul” existence here on Earth in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” until Christ’s 2nd Coming.  And it is this SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” that Satan and his False Prophets are WAGING WAR against RIGHT NOW.

But make no mistake -- Christ REVEALED through Zechariah’s prophecy that the 2/3 of the World’s population who are now WAGING WAR against Christ and us True Prophets of Christ would be in Bondage to Satan from birth to death.  And it is because Christ chose NOT to save them and because they have ALWAYS existed in their “unsaved soul” existence here on Earth in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon the Great” and will exist in Satan’s SPIRITUAL CITY until Christ’s 2nd Coming – that Satan has DECEIVED them into thinking that they can be AT WAR with the very God of the Universe and WIN.  I DON’T THINK SO!!!   

Christ will be the one who will WIN – and He REVEALED to Zechariah that at His 2nd Coming that He would “cut off” those He had chosen NOT to save and they would be cast out of His Kingdom forever and thrown into HELL where they will remain in their Final Estate of Hell for all Eternity.  But what we True Prophets of Christ must understand with THE MIND OF CHRIST -- is that with Zechariah’s prophecy that Christ wanted to convey a CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of how VAST Satan’s Army would be in this Final Spiritual Battle of the Great Tribulation in which we True Prophets of His would be fighting along with Christ that MUST occur before He would Rapture us on the LAST DAY. 

And clearly -- this CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE conveys that 2/3 of the World’s population led by Satan will be fighting this Final Spiritual Battle of only 1/3 of the World’s population led by Christ Himself.  And just think about that for a moment – for there is a hidden CRYPTIC MESSAGE in those numbers to be sure.

But first let me just say that I am the LAST person on Earth to ever believe that numerology or Bible codes or ANY form of Divination AT ALL is THE TRUTH – but am much more like Isaiah who taunted the Babylonians to go to the powerless “astrologers” and “stargazers” and “monthly prognosticators” for their Salvation as we read in Isaiah 47:13.  For these forms of divination assume that GOD does NOT control History but that History is governed by the affairs of the pagan gods REVEALED in the movement of the Planets. 

While we True Prophets of Christ know and believe that a SOVEREIGN GOD rules this World and that resorting to any type of Divination is an ABOMINATION TO CHRIST.  For Christ beseeches us to live a life of FAITH in which we trust in Him and NOT our “lucky stars” to guide us!!!

But with that said – it is interesting  to note that there are 7.6 Billion people in this world that is being recorded daily as I type this if you GOOGLE it.  And it is 2/3 of the World’s population that Christ REVEALED to Zechariah who would NOT be saved by Him which today amounts to 5.06666667 BILLION people.  HONESTLY -- even I who puts NO stock AT ALL in Divination has to admit that number is uncanny since it contains the infamous number 666 in it which Christ REVEALED to John in his 7 visions is the number of unsaved Man.  

And the 1/3 of the population that Christ REVEALED to Zechariah that He would save out of the World’s population which is today 7.6 Billion amounts to 2.53333333 Billion people which is ALSO extremely uncanny since the numbers 3 and 7 in the Bible have a Spiritual significance. 

And CLEARLY even though I don’t believe in any type of DIVINATION AT ALL – I DO believe that the numbers in the Bible have a Spiritual significance.  And the Spiritual significance of the number 3 is used to signify “the purpose or the will” of God.  While the Spiritual significance of the number 7 is used to signify “totality” or “completeness” of whatever is in view.  And it is indeed uncanny that there are 7 of the 3’s in the number of the 1/3 of the world’s population that have been saved today!!!  I’m just saying!!!    

But there’s also an important message in the word “prophet” – for the word “prophet” in the Bible is “a messenger” – so that means that there are roughly 5.06666667 BILLION messengers who are False Prophets of Satan promoting his SATANIC LIES about just everything imaginable in this World today -- including the Eschatology of these End-Times.  And with the LIES of Man’s False Eschatology Satan is trying to SILENCE and KILL the TRUTH of Christ’s True Eschatology and Gospel Message of the Kingdom of Heaven.  And with so many people on Earth DECIEVING and LYING – is it any wonder that Christ called these times of FAKE PROPHECY the Great Tribulation???!!!  THINK ABOUT IT!!!       

Christ is Warning us Today!

Christ is just NOT coming back to reign on this sin-cursed Earth for a 1000 years from a Newly rebuilt temple in Jerusalem as so many World Renowned Bible Prophecy Experts teach relentlessly today – HARDLY!!!  He has ALREADY been reigning in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” now with those of us “saved Jews of the Spirit” that He chose to save since His resurrection.  And that means that His Millennial Kingdom which was inaugurated after the Cross at His resurrection -- has been going on for over 2000 years now.  And He is coming back to CONSUMMATE that Millennial Kingdom – NOT to inaugurate it!!!   

And that brings me back to the REAL message of this Commentary -- which is to understand Christ’s CRYPTIC MESSAGE of “the balm of Gilead.”   And clearly to understand that CRYPTIC MESSAGE everyone who professes to be a Christian today should read Jeremiah Chapter 8 which explains that “the balm of Gilead” is a reference to God’s WARNING to Judah of what the Babylonians were going to do to them for their unfaithfulness to God and His Word. 

For Christ REVEALED to Jeremiah that He would not only allow the Babylonians to overcome and conquer them – but that He Himself was bringing the Babylonians against them to PUNISH them – and that it was His DIVINE PLAN that only a REMNANT of them would be saved out of this time of Judgment on Israel!!!  AND SO IT GOES TODAY!!!

 CLEARLY -- upon hearing the news from the Lord’s Holy Spirit that Judgment was coming to God’s own people -- Jeremiah laments: “Is there no balm in Gilead?” (Jeremiah 8:22).  His question is a poetic search for hope and a plea for healing – but the healing of the Israelites didn’t come through their deliverance from the Babylonians – HARDLY!!!  Christ had them drug off into Babylonian Captivity to endure tremendous suffering in Babylon for 70 long years for their SPIRITUAL IDOLATRY to Him.  And many of them perished because Christ had never chosen to save ALL of the Israelites – but again only a REMNANT of them.  

We know that Christ chose to save Jeremiah and Ezekiel and Daniel -- and that He even allowed Jeremiah to escape when Jerusalem was being burnt to the ground by King Nebuchadnezzar’s Babylonian Army.  But Daniel and Ezekiel were shackled along with the rest of the Israelites and drug off into 70 years of Babylonian captivity and did NOT ESCAPE that time of Judgment but went through it – which just foreshadows today’s time of Great Tribulation -- THINK ABOUT IT!!!

And what we need to understand is that even though Daniel and Ezekiel went through 70 years of Babylonian Captivity – the Judgment of God’s people was NOT directed at them and the rest of God’s True Prophets who remained faithful to Christ and His Word.  But it was certainly directed at all of the False Prophets in Israel who were telling God’s people LIES and to those unfaithful Israelites who were believing them.   In Jeremiah 46:11 we read where God describes the impending Judgment on Egypt and He has Jeremiah taunt the Israelites by declaring to them:

“Go up to Gilead and obtain balm, O virgin daughter of Egypt!  In vain have you multiplied remedies; (but) there is no healing for you!”

Jeremiah Chapter 8 is almost an instant replay of today and certainly foreshadows how Christ must feel about ALL of the False Prophets of TODAY who are telling LIES to His people about what is happening now and what is going to happen in these End-Times before Christ’s 2ndComing and THE RAPTURE.  For their LIES are part of their False Eschatology that Christ NEVER authored but which they clearly made up.  And HONESTLY -- NONE of their False Eschatology is going to come to fruition because NONE of what they are teaching is THE TRUTH from God!!! 

And what Christ had Jeremiah prophesy to the False Prophets of his day surely applies to the False Prophets of today when we read that Christ wasn’t too happy with the False Prophets of Jeremiah’s Day.  And that’s why He had Jeremiah give them these words of condemnation for telling His people LIES which is no doubt what He would be saying to the False Prophets of TODAY also when we read:

“How can you say, ‘We are wise, and the law of the Lord is with us’?  Look, the false pen of the scribe certainly works falsehood.  The wise men (of Jeremiah’s Day who are just like the “so called” World Renowned Bible Prophecy Experts of TODAY) are ashamed, they are dismayed and taken. (or they at least SHOULD BE dismayed for their mishandling of God’s Word for profit and for gain is an Abomination to the Lord!!!) Behold, they have rejected the word of the Lord;

“So what wisdom do they have?  Therefore I will give their wives to others, and their fields to those who will inherit them; because from the least even to the greatest EVERYONE is given to covetousness; From the prophet even to the priest EVERYONE deals falsely.  For they have healed the hurt of the daughter of My people (only) slightly, Saying, ‘Peace, peace!’  When there is no peace.   Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination?  No! They were not at all ashamed, Nor did they know how to blush.  Therefore they shall fall among those who fall; In the time of their punishment they shall be cast down,” says the Lord.  “I will surely consume them,” says the Lord. “No grapes shall be on the vine, Nor figs on the fig tree, And the leaf shall fade; And the things I have given them shall pass away from them.” ’  (Jeremiah 8:8-13)  AND AGAIN – SO IT GOES TODAY!!!

Judgment Begins at the House of the Lord!

What so many Professed Christians just do NOT realize today is that 1st Judgment comes to the House of the Lord – to God’s own people -- and then to the rest of the world.  And this picture of Judgment in Jeremiah and Ezekiel and Daniel’s Day certainly foreshadows how Christ is punishing His Apostate Congregation today.  For clearly the Judgment in Jeremiah’s day foreshadows the Judgment today when 1st Christ punished the Israelites with their 70 years of Babylonian Captivity.  And then when they had been thoroughly punished – He turned on the Babylonians and thoroughly punished them also as we read in Jeremiah 46. 

And it just can’t be reiterated enough that Daniel and Ezekiel and Jeremiah had to go through that time of Judgment just as we True Prophets of Christ are now going through this time of Judgment on the False Prophets of today.  And what we read about the Judgment in Jeremiah and Daniel and Ezekiel’s day applies to the Judgment of TODAY also when we read:

“For this is the day of the Lord God of hosts, a day of vengeance, that He may avenge Himself on His adversaries.  The sword shall devour; It shall be  satiated and made drunk with their blood; For the Lord God of hosts has a sacrifice in the north country by the River Euphrates.” 

 

 And clearly – Christ DID bring the Babylonian against His own people when we next read:

 

“Go up to Gilead and take balm, O virgin, the daughter of Egypt; In vain you will use many medicines; You shall NOT be cured.  The nations have heard of your shame, and your cry has filled the land; for the mighty man has stumbled against the mighty; they both have fallen together.  The word that the Lord spoke to Jeremiah the prophet, how Nebuchadnezzar King of Babylon would come and strike the land of Egypt.”

(Jeremiah 46:10-13)

 

And when Christ had brought the Babylonians against His own people of Judah just as Christ told Jeremiah He would – next He punished Babylon and brought it down too.  For Christ was telling Jeremiah that He would NOT let the Israelites go unpunished for their unfaithfulness to Him -- but that He would eventually save the REMNANT among them that He had chosen to save before the foundation of the World.  But NOT until after He had punished them for 70 long years when we read:

 

“But do not fear, O My servant Jacob, And do not be dismayed, O Israel!  For behold, I will save you from afar, and your offspring from the land of their captivity; Jacob shall return, have rest and be at ease; No one shall make him afraid.  Do not fear, O Jacob My servant,” says the Lord, “For I am with you; For I will make a complete end of ALL the nations to which I have driven you, But I will not make a complete end of you.  I will rightly correct you, For I will NOT leave you wholly unpunished.” (Jeremiah 46)

 

CLEARLY this prophecy had a partial fulfillment in Jeremiah’s Day but will be FINALLY be realized as completely Fulfilled in our Day on Earth.  And we living today going through this prophesied time of Great Tribulation can relate to how Jeremiah and Ezekiel and Daniel must have felt because we are seeing what happened in their time with the Israelites’ unfaithfulness to Christ being PUNISHED happening again TODAY in our time. 

And clearly now TODAY Christ is separating His True Prophets in the  “Israel of God” which is His Eternal Universal Church on Earth -- from the counterfeit Christians who are the False Prophets in the Apostate External Global Harlot Church where MOST Christians sadly now abide – NOT in Christ’s True Eternal Universal Church.

Why Jeremiah was Called “The Weeping Prophet”

CLEARLY -- we True Prophets of Christ can relate to why Jeremiah was called “the weeping prophet” – for Jeremiah knew that he and his people were being punished for their Apostasy and unfaithfulness to Christ.  And Jeremiah’s heart was aching -- for Christ had told him what was on the horizon.  AND SO IT GOES TODAY!!! 

We True Prophets of Christ should know and understand just as Jeremiah did that what Christ has prophesied about this time of Great Tribulation and “Jacob’s Trouble” has NOW COME TO PASS!!!

And our hearts should be breaking too – for we know that Christ is NOW TODAY separating out of His Congregation those who are NOT His True Prophets and is soon going to “cast out” of His Kingdom all of Satan’s False Prophets who will “die” and be cast into HELL at His Return just as Christ later REVEALED to Zechariah as we read in Zechariah 13:8-9.  Jeremiah tells us just how his heart was aching inside of him -- for he too knew what was on the horizon for his people when we read:

“I would comfort myself in sorrow; My heart is faint in me.  Listen!  The voice, The cry of the daughter of my people from a far country: “Is not the Lord in Zion?  Is not her King in her?” “Why have they provoked Me to anger with their carved images -- with foreign idols?”   “The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved!”  For the hurt of the daughter of my people I am hurt.  I am mourning; astonishment has taken hold of me.  Is there no balm in Gilead,  Is there no physician there?  Why then is there no recovery for the health of the daughter of my people?” (Jer. 8:18-22)

We True Prophets of Christ can see that Judgment Day is again HERE and all we can do is cry out to the Lord like Jeremiah did – for there’s no changing Christ’s DIVINE PLAN NOW!!!  I just wrote about today’s time of HARVEST in the Commentary that I put aside to publish this one.  And that Commentary that I will send out soon goes into more detail about how Christ is shining a huge spot light on His Congregation and testing and trying us to see which ones of us will remain faithful to Him and which ones have fallen for the deceptions and LIES of Satan about these End-Times in which we are living. 

And for those who REFUSE to believe Christ’s Gospel TRUTH of His True Eschatology about THE RAPTURE and His 2ndComing – Christ has NOW TODAY LOOSED SATAN on them to send them “a strong delusion” so that ALL of Satan’s False Prophets will believe the LIES of Satan about these End-Times and be DAMNED!!!

Christ Reveals that He has Already Invisibly Marked Everyone

While this is the topic that my original Commentary was meant to convey – and I still plan to send that Commentary out soon which will go into more depth of just who Christ REVEALS “THE BEAST” of the Books of Daniel and Revelation is and what “THE MARK OF THE BEAST” means – suffice it to say that there are a few important points about “THE MARK OF THE BEAST” that I want to make in this present Commentary too. 

For Christ REVEALED to John in his 3rd Vision recorded in Revelation Chapter 11 that when He gave the command for the 5th and 6th Angels to pour out their Bowl Judgments of SPIRITUAL BLINDNESS on Satan’s Kingdom – which AGAIN are the 1st 2 WOES of the LAST 3 WOES -- that then the False Prophets in League with Satan would be so BLINDED that they would not even know that the prophesied Great Tribulation had even begun and that Christ’s 2nd Coming was right on the Horizon. 

And while there is plenty of Scriptural evidence that demands a verdict that Christ has done the invisible marking of ALL Mankind -- NOT that a Future Evil Antichrist will mark anyone after a MYTICAL SECRET RAPTURE of the Church – there is are just a few very important Scriptures that I will share in this Commentary below that PROVES this Biblical TRUTH – and will save the other Scriptures for my next commentary.

For Christ had John prophesy these very important TRUTHS about the 7 Bowl Judgments which are: 1) before the 1st Bowl Judgment is even poured out John saw that EVERYONE had ALREADY been marked with “THE MARK OF THE BEAST” – 2) that the 7 Bowl Judgments along with the 7 seals and 7 trumpets being broken and sounded are directed only at those with “THE MARK OF THE BEAST” – NOT at Christ’s True Prophets when we read:

“Then I heard a loud voice from the Temple saying to the seven angels, “Go and pour out the Bowls of the wrath of God on the Earth.”  So the first went and poured out his Bowl upon the Earth, and a foul and loathsome sore came upon the men who (ALREADY) had THE MARK OF THE BEAST and (were) those who worshiped his image.” (Revelation 16:1-2)

The most important TRUTH that these verses prove is almost never taught by our “so called” World Renowned Bible Prophecy Experts who teach Man’s False Eschatology that the 7 Plagues will NOT be poured out until AFTER the Secret Rapture of the Church and AFTER “THE ANTICHRIST” stands up in a rebuilt 3rd Temple in Jerusalem and declares Himself to be GOD.  Which they say happens halfway through the 70th week Prophecy of Daniel.

But if we are Christ’s True Prophets living today here on Planet Earth – then we should be able to realize that Christ has now poured out the 1st 2 WOES of the last 3 WOES of the 7 Plagues of The Book of Revelation which are the Bowls of SPIRITUAL BLINDNESS.  And those Plagues of “SPIRITUAL BLINDNESS” is an instant repeat of what Christ poured out on Satan’s Evil Egyptian Empire in Moses’ Day right before the Final Last 10th Plague of the “DEATH ANGEL” passing over.  THINK ABOUT IT!!!

In other words – the Bowls of SPIRITUAL BLINDNESS which are the 5th and 6th Bowls that were REVEALED to John have NOW already been poured out on Satan’s False Prophets who John saw ALREADY had “THE MARK OF THE BEAST” on them starting with the 1st Bowl Judgment being poured out.  And it is because Christ has LOOSED Satan as a Judgment on the False Prophets in his Kingdom of “Babylon the Great” that they are being DECEIVED and BLINDED that the Great Tribulation has even begun.  

HONESTLY – a good reason to believe that the 1st 2 WOES have already been poured out is the fact that almost ALL of the False Prophets of today REFUSE to accept the True Eschatology about Christ’s 2nd coming just as the Pharisees and the Sadducees REFUSED to accept Christ’s True Eschatology about His 1st Coming.

Didn’t Christ REVEAL in His Apocalyptic Discourse that we True Prophets of His would see with our own eyes “the Abomination of Desolation” of Satan taking his seat as “THE ANTICHRIST” in the Harlot Church???!!!  And didn’t He REVEAL to both Daniel and John that Satan and his Demonic Army of 200 MILLION DEMONS will proceed to BLIND all those who have “THE MARK OF THE BEAST” after Christ LOOSES them to fight this Final Spiritual Battle???!!! 

And isn’t that BLINDING what Christ wanted to convey with the CRYPTIC MESSAGE of the pouring out of the 5thand 6th Bowl Judgments on the Throne of “THE BEAST” who is Satan???!!!

In other words -- today’s BLINDING that the pouring out of the 5th and 6th Bowl Judgment has produced – has plunged all of Satan’s False Prophets even deeper into SPIRITUAL DARKNESS before the Final Day of Judgment so that they can NOT even understand what is going on in the world or that we are not only IN the Final Spiritual Battle of Good and Evil and TRUTH AND LIES – but near the very END OF IT.  And doesn’t that also mean that the 1,335th Day of the Great Tribulation REVEALED to Daniel is right on the Horizon???!!! 

And if all of this is THE TRUTH -- which I certainly believe that it is -- then doesn’t that mean that the 2/3 of the World’s population that Christ REVEALED to Zechariah who were NOT chosen to be saved by Him have ALREADY have been invisibly marked with “THE MARK OF THE BEAST” written on their foreheads by Christ Himself ???!!! 

And doesn’t it also mean that since Christ did the saving of Mankind that He has also done the invisible Marking of Mankind???!!!  Or did Christ somehow get it all WRONG – that One Particular Man indwelled by Satan who hasn’t even stepped up on the stage of Human History yet will mark everyone with “THE MARK OF THE BEAST” and his number of 666 AFTER the Secret Rapture???!!!  I’m just saying!!!

 

The 6th Angel has Already Poured out his Bowl on

The Great River Euphrates and Christ has Already Loosed Satan and His 200 Million Demonic Army From Hell     

Just like Jeremiah – my own heart aches for those who will NOT believe THE TRUTH but are BLINDED that we are even IN the Battle of “Armageddon” right now.  For I know that after the 1st 2 WOES are poured out which are the 5th and 6th Bowl Judgments -- then Christ also REVEALED to John that TODAY’S Final Spiritual Battle would begin when we read:

“Then the sixth Angel poured out his Bowl on the Great River Euphrates, and its water was dried up, so that the way of the Kings from the East might be prepared.  And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs coming out of the mouth of the Dragon, out of the mouth of THE BEAST (who is SATAN), and out of the mouth of the False Prophet. (and there is a VAST ARMY of False Prophets in Satan’s Army today which Christ REVEALED to Zechariah is 2/3 of the world’s population of unsaved men – NOT JUST ONE False Prophet!!!)   

“For they (the frogs coming out of the mouth of Satan and his False Prophets) are spirits of DEMONS, performing signs, which go out to the Kings of the Earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that Great Day of God Almighty.

“Behold, I am coming as a thief.  Blessed is he who watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked and they see his shame.”   And they gathered them together to the place called in Hebrew, Armageddon.” (Revelation 16:12-16) 

We True Prophets of Christ today would be wise to be Pro-Christ and NEVER ANTICHRIST – but to rally to Christ’s side like “the Sons of Issachar” did in David’s Day who had an understanding of the times.  For we are in for the Battle of our lives here on Earth RIGHT NOW TODAY until Christ sounds the LAST 7TH TRUMPET!!! 

And I am praying my heart out that the LAST DAY will come SOON just as John prophesied that it would when the 2nd WOE had been poured out.  Christ also REVEALED to John that the LAST 3RD WOE would follow quickly after the 1st 2 WOES have been poured out and that we True Prophets of God would still be here on Earth when we read:

“The second woe is past. Behold, the third woe is coming quickly.” (Rev. 11:14)

Our prayer today should daily be the famous Lord’s Prayer that Christ taught us to pray knowing that His Millennial Kingdom had ALREADY come on Earth but beseeching us to pray “that His Kingdom in the New Heavens and the New Earth would come soon” and that His Will – will be done on Earth like it is in HEAVEN.  And rest assured it WILL BE – for one thing we can count on in this world that is daily spinning out of control – is that GOD IS IN CONTROL!!!

Some Closing Thoughts

God only knows that most Professed Christians today need an Elijah standing on Mount Carmel calling us in Christ’s Army to Arms.  And I only pray that I can take the place of Elijah in doing that for Christ today.  For there are far too many Professed Christians who have become so “apostate” in these Days of Apocalypse that they LOVE THE LIES of Man’s False Eschatology MORE than they do THE TRUTH of Christ’s Words in His True Eschatology.  And Heaven only knows that they need a WAKE-UP CALL to be sure of where we are RIGHT NOW on Christ’s Prophetic Timeline. 

For it is indeed sad that Christ’s True Eschatology is so foreign to these Apostate Christians that they don’t even realize that we are IN the Great Tribulation right now.  HONESTLY -- they have bought the LIES of Satan for so long now that they can’t even recognize the truth of God’s word as THE TRUTH anymore!!!

And so I MOVE FORWARD IN FAITH and just keep praying for all of God’s people to survive these times of Great Tribulation and NOT to be deceived.  For it is obvious that Christ has now LOOSED Satan and his 200 MILLION Army of Demons from HELL to deceive the 2/3 of the World’s population that are “the unsaved Jews of the Flesh” that Christ chose NOT to save and has ALREADY marked with “THE MARK OF THE BEAST.”

I pray that we True Prophets of Christ will rally to His side and stand up for His TRUTHS as we are clearly nearing the 1,335th Day that Christ REVEALED to Daniel is the Day of His 2nd Coming.  And I have promised Christ that I will keep writing my Commentaries and praying for His people to rally to His side until He sounds His LAST 7TH TRUMPET. 

For GOD ONLY KNOWS what EVIL lies ahead with Satan ruling all the Nations of the world in the United Nations today.  But fortunately – if we have been “Blessed” to be one of Christ’s True Prophets who have made it to the 1,335 days of this prophesied time of Great Tribulation like Christ REVEALED to Daniel -- then we ALREADY know that there still is “the Balm of Gilead” and that there is “healing in His wings”– for we have ALREADY RECEIVED IT!!!  And PRAISE GOD for that!!!

In His Service!!!
