JEREMIAH 30

3 For, lo [hinei], the days come [are coming], saith Yahweh, that I will bring again [back from] the captivity of My people Israel and Judah [Yisroel and Yehudah], saith Yahweh: and I will cause them to return to the land [ ha'aretz] that I gave to their fathers [avot], and they shall possess it.

The promise of restoration after seventy years, and the opposition received from the false prophets in exile, led naturally to prophecies of the more glorious and complete return in the latter days (chs. 30, 31), of which that under Zerubbabel was a type.

5 For thus saith Yahweh; We have heard a voice of trembling, of fear, and not of peace [cry of fear, of pachad (terror), and not of shalom].

At this crisis, then, of extreme peril to the Jewish population of Palestine -- of that "tenth" # indicated in Isa. vi. 13 -- "the fury of Adonai YAHWEH comes up into his face" -- his eyes become as a flame of fire, and his countenance as the sun shining in his strength (Apoc. i. 14,16; x. 1).

He comes out of Egypt, as it is written, "Out of Egypt I called my son" (Hos. xi. 1). This was true of "Israel my son, my first born" (Exod. iv. 22), in the days of Moses; of the child Jesus, prophetically named Israel in Isa. xlix. 3, the Beloved Son of the Eternal Father, in the days of his infancy (Matt. ii. 15); and it is also true of Israel in Egypt, and of the Rainbowed Angelic Son of Man, the Yahweh Name, their King, in the day when Gog, in the latter-years manifestation of the Little Horn of the Goat, the King of fierce countenance, "shall stand up against the Prince of princes" (Dan. viii. 25). The Son of the Eternal Father in these several manifestations of Sonship, is called out of Egypt.

But affliction attends the Son more or less in Egypt. Sojourn in Egypt is because of distress in Canaan; and how can Israel sing for joy of heart in a strange land, while the land of their inheritance is trampled under foot of the spoiler! Hence the testimony, "I will bring them again also out of the land of Egypt, and gather them out of Assyria; and I will bring them into the land of Gilead and Lebanon, and place shall not be found for them. And he shall pass through the sea with affliction, and shall smite the waves of the sea, and all the deeps of the river (the Euphrates) shall dry up; and the pride of Assyria (of Gog) shall be brought down, and the sceptre of Egypt shall depart away" (Zech. x. 10).

Eureka 10: 6

# This immigration and settlement is therefore not spread over the whole land; but principally confined to the midst or navel of the land; to that part, in other words, styled by Isaiah "a tenth." His words are, "a great forsaking in the midst of the land. But yet in it a tenth, and it shall return and be eaten."

Herald of the Kingdom and Age to Come, Feb 1854


6 Ask ye now, and see whether a man [zachar] doth travail with child? wherefore do I see every man [gever ] with his hands on his loins [stomach], as a woman in travail [labor], and all faces are turned into paleness [deadly pale]?

The third great apocalyptic earthquake is yet in the future. It is styled "a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great."

The effect of this is the threefold subdivision of the Great City; the fall of the kingdoms of the nations; the judgment of Babylon; the disappearance of the political islands and mountains; and all consequences flowing from these events... The earthquake of Apoc. xi. 19, is the same as this greatest of all earthquakes, being associated with the "great hail."

Eureka 6.6.2.

Earthquake metaphorical for violent shaking of the political, military and social systems of the dominions of Men. 


7 Alas! For that day is great [gadol hayom], so that none is like it: it is even the time [ Et] of Jacob's trouble [Tzarah l'Ya'akov], but he shall be saved out of it.

This is the last and greatest of the "Woes." It is, in its seventh period, "the time of Jacob's trouble, out of which, however, he shall be saved" (Jer. xxx. 7).

But not of Jacob only, but also of "the House of Esau," which shall be as stubble to the devouring flame, when saviours shall come up on Mount Zion to judge the Mount of Esau, and the kingdom shall be Yahweh's" (Obad. 17-21); for at that time, which is "the time of the end," when "the indignation shall be accomplished, and that determined done" -- "Michael shall stand up, the great prince who standeth for the posterity of Daniel's people; and there shall be a time of trouble, apocalyptically represented by "a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake and so great" (xvi. 18) -- or, as Dan. xii. 1, expresses it, "a time of trouble such as never was since there was a nation to that same time."

Then will the dead who have walked in the truth be raised to incorruptibility; and the Son of Man will send his messengers with a trumpet of great voice, and they shall gather together his elect ones from all the nations, from the end of the heavens; and they shall return (Deut. xxx. 3-5; Matt. xxiv. 31).

Eureka 5.2.3


This will be truly the day of Jacob's trouble, in which there will be none to help, nor any to uphold (Isa. 63:5; Jer. 30:7). But, Zion's extremity is her Redeemer's opportunity. "When," saith Moses, "he seeth that their power is gone, he will repent himself for his servants;" and saith Joel, "He will then be jealous for his land, and pity his people, who shall no more be made a reproach among the nations" (ch. 2:18,19; Deut. 32:36).

Eureka 14.11.


In leaving Egypt, then, the Rainbowed Angel leads Israel out as a trembling bird (Hos. xi. 11). He does not lead them by the Isthmus of Suez, but after the example of Moses and the angel, his prototype, he leads them to the seashore. "Was thy wrath against the sea," saith the Spirit, "that thou didst ride upon thine horses (Apoc. xix. 11,14) thy chariots of salvation? Thou didst walk through the sea with thine horses, through the heap of great waters. When I heard," says the prophet as representative of his people in the flesh, "my belly trembled; my lips quivered at the voice: rottenness entered into my bones, and I trembled in myself, that I might rest in the day of trouble" -- that day so great that none is like it; even the time of Jacob's trouble, out of which he shall be saved"

Eureka 10:6



8 For it shall come to pass in that day, saith Yahweh of hosts [Tzva'os], that I will break his yoke {the yoke of Esau's house - Eureka} from off thy neck [tzavar], and will burst thy bonds, and strangers [zarim (foreigners)] shall no more serve themselves [make a slave] of him:

...on returning home from their dispersion after they stand upon their feet as a great army, they will have to fight their way through all the countries of the house of Esau. In this Jubilee return, under the Second and Third Angels "the house of Jacob," says Obadiah, "shall be a fire, and the house of Joseph aflame, and the House of Esau for stubble, and they shall kindle in them, and devour them; and there shall not be any remaining of the house of Esau. For Saviours shall come up on Mount Zion (the Lamb with the 144,000) to judge the Mount of Esau; and the kingdom shall be Yahweh's".

... hitherto Jacob has been under the heel of Esau, whose metallic Image stands unbroken upon its feet of iron and miry clay. The work of the Second and Third Angels is to grind to powder the various metals of which it is composed; and to do the work so effectually that no place be found for the things they represent (Dan. 2:35).

Eureka 14.7



Having destroyed the tongue of the Egyptian sea, and brought Israel up again from its depths, the Rainbowed Angel leads them into the wilderness of Paran. Habakkuk sees him here in great power and indignation; for "before him goes the pestilence, and burning coals from his feet," apocalyptically styled, "pillars of fire." "He beheld," when he came from mount Paran, and "rose up from mount Seir unto them." "Adonai YAHWEH (He who shall be lord) shall blow the trumpet, and shall go forth with whirlwinds of the south" (Zech. ix. 14). "He shall march through the land in indignation, and thresh the nations in anger" (Hab. iii. 12).

In this march, he arrives at Bozrah in Edom, where his presence confronts the forces of the Russo-Assyrian king; "and all the men that are upon the face of the land shake at his presence." He causes them to turn their swords against one another. He smites every horse with terror and blindness, and his rider with madness (Zech. xii. 4). He pleads against them with pestilence and with blood; and rains upon him and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone (Ezek. xxxviii. 22).

This is the crisis which fairly inaugurates "the war of that great day of the all-powerful Deity" in the field of Armageddon (Apoc. xvi. 14,16); "the great winepress of the wrath of Deity" (xiv. 19). Israel under the leadership of the Rainbowed Angel on the one side; and the Powers that be, upon the other, are the belligerents in this war. In the overthrow of the enemy at Bozrah, however, Israel after the flesh had no part. The breaking in pieces of the oppressor in Idumea, in this day of "Yahweh's vengeance, and year of recompences for the controversy of Zion" (Isa. xxxiv. 8); is the glory of the Rainbowed Angel alone.

"I have trodden the winepress alone," saith the Spirit; "and of the people there was none with me: for I will tread them in mine anger, and trample them in my fury; and their blood shall be sprinkled upon my garments, and I will stain all my raiment. For the day of vengeance is in my heart, and the year of my redeemed is come" (Isa. lxiii. 3).

By this treading of the winepress, the Rainbowed Angel magnifies and sanctifies himself; and is known in the eyes of those many nations confederate with the king of the north, who come to know that he is YAHWEH (Ezek. xxxviii. 23).

Eureka 10.6



9 But they shall serve Yahweh their Elohim, and David their king [Dovid their Melech], whom I will raise up unto [for] them.

Nations are political organizations of men: to make a full end of such is to dissolve and abolish all national bodies founded and built up by the violence and craftiness of the wicked. A full end is to be made of all the nations whither Yahweh has scattered the Jews.

This declaration is fatal to the independence and political existence of the United States, as well as that of all nationalities. The Second and Third Angels, which are identical with the Rainbowed Angel of the tenth chapter, in the great and terrible Day of Atonement, execute this Divine purpose of reducing mankind to a common and universal brotherhood; and of subjecting them to the imperial and regal sovereignty of Jesus and his Brethren.

The Israelitish Nationality, however, is not destroyed. In this day of judgment, Israelites are "corrected in measure," and the rebellious among them destroyed: but a remnant will survive the refining process of this terrible day, and its constituents will every man return to his possessions in the land of the Holy One of Israel. Because, therefore, for the sake of his name, "all they that devour Jacob shall be devoured; and all his adversaries, every one of them shall go into captivity (ch 13:l0) and they that spoil him shall be a spoil, and all that prey upon him will I give for a prey. For I will restore health unto Jacob and will heal him of his wounds; because they call Zion an Outcast saying This is Zion whom no man seeketh after In the latter days Israel shall consider it (Jer. 30).

Now the Lamb-Power as the Man of war Yahweh will do all this after the example of Joshua in his war upon the Canaanites; which illustrates the manner in which Yahweh fought in the day of battle (Zech 14:3).

Eureka 14.7.

All non-Israelitish nations are to be abolished. That is, there will be no national diversities in the post-millennial ages. All will be righteous, deathless, and citizens of Israel's Commonwealth, which will continue eternally under a new constitution. There will then be no English, French, Spaniards, Italians, and such like; but all will be Israelites by the adoption or redemption from death, or the mortal state.

Eureka 3.3.4.



10 Therefore fear thou not, O my servant Jacob [Avdi Ya'akov], saith Yahweh; neither be dismayed, O Israel [Yisroel]: for, lo [hineni], I will save thee from afar, and thy seed from the land [zera from the eretz ] of their captivity; and Jacob [Ya'akov] shall return, and shall be in rest, and be quiet [secure], and none shall make him afraid. 

Israel's hopes will be at the lowest ebb; and unless another Joseph appear as in Egypt, for the salvation of his father's house, they must perish.

But the Eternal Power has provided for them a Deliverer after the type of Joseph, who at his second interview with the nation, his brethren after the flesh, will reveal himself to them in the day of affliction; and when they shall discover, as Zechariah teaches, by the wounds in his hands, that he is Yahoshaia, or Jesus, who was wounded in the house of his kindred (13:6; 12:10); and that it is to him they are indebted for deliverance from the enemy, they will mourn and be in bitterness before him, as their fathers were in Joseph's presence, whom, as they had served Jesus, they sold for a few pieces of silver.

All the tribes of the earth will howl, for the anguish of the times will be great -- Israel among the nations, as a lion among flocks of sheep; YAHWEH's battle-axe and weapons of war to break in pieces the nations, and destroy the kingdoms; his new sharp threshing instrument to beat the mountains small, and to make the hills as chaff; his fan to fan them; a whirling wind to scatter them as thistle-down (Jer. 50:20; Isai. 41:15,16: 17:13).

"Even so, Amen."

Eureka 1.4.4



11 For I am with thee, saith Yahweh, to save thee: though I make a full end of all nations [Goyim] whither I have scattered thee, yet I will not make a full end of thee: but I will correct thee in measure [mishpat], and will not leave thee altogether unpunished.

When this full end is made, the immortal inhabitants of the earth will be able to say, in the words of this prophecy, "the sea is no more".

When the sea of nations, then, is made a full end of, but one nation remains the eternal occupant of the earth. Flesh and blood having been abolished in the destruction of "the last enemy Death," that one nation must be a nation of immortals.

Eureka 21.3.


The nations of the earth and sea will then be superseded by "THE ISRAEL OF GOD," every individual of whom, of all orders and degrees, will be consubstantial with the Deity, and the occupant of this then glorious planet which shall never be removed.

Eureka 4.3.5.




14 All thy lovers have forgotten thee; they seek thee not; for I have wounded thee with the wound of an enemy [makkat oyev], with the chastisement [musar] of a cruel one, for the multitude of thine iniquity [avon]; because thy sins were increased.

15 Why criest thou for thine affliction? Thy sorrow [ pain] is incurable for the multitude of thine iniquity [avon]: because thy sins [chattot] were increased, I have done these things unto thee.

16 Therefore all they that devour thee shall be devoured; and all thine adversaries, every one of them, shall go into captivity; and they that spoil [ plunder] thee shall be a spoil, and all that prey upon thee will I give for a prey.

The furnace in which Israel will become molten brass is "the wilderness of the peoples," where Yahweh saith He will plead with them face to face; rule over them with fury poured out, and purge out from among them the rebellious, whom He will not permit to enter into the Holy Land to live there in His sight under the government of His King--the Christ (Ezek. 20:33-44).

When thus purged, the Jewish nation will be brass and silver well refined (Mal. 3:2-3). The rebellious dross will be cleaned out, and Anti-Mosaic-Judaism, by which they are now caused to wander out of the way, will have been destroyed from the earth. The refining furnace is the "time of Jacob's trouble," out of which he is to be delivered (Jer. 30:7); and though they are now "prostrate among the cattle pens," they will be "the wings of the Dove covered with silver and her feathers with the brightness of fine gold" (Ps. 68:13).

But the Gentiles are to become molten brass as well as Israel. Their brass, therefore, is also to be gathered into the furnace, that it may be melted and refined in the fire of Yahweh's wrath.

The place of the furnace is also "the wilderness of the people," that wilderness inhabited by the peoples, multitudes, nations, and tongues -- the "many waters upon which the Great Harlot sitteth" -- that John of Patmos refers to in Rev. 17:1,15 -- Portugal, Spain, France, Germany, Italy, Greece, Egypt; and, in short, all being the Meditteranean and Euphratean countries, being the territories of the four beasts of Daniel, constitute the furnace in which the Nebuchadnezzar gold, silver and brass, and iron, and clay--are made to glow with torrid heat of seven-fold intensity; and in which the four men of God -- the Cherubim -- walk to and fro, without hurt, "the fire having no power upon their bodies": as symbolized by Nebuchadnezzar's furnace, and by John's mystical Son of Man, in Rev. 1:15: Dan. 3:19-27.

The melting and refining the Gentile brass in this Babylonian furnace, incandescent with the wrath of Deity, is Daniel's "time of trouble, such as never was, since there was a nation to that same time" (12:1). It is "the day that shall burn as an oven" (or furnace) which shall consume the proud and all that do wickedness, with their anti-Christian Gentilism, by which the peoples are deceived; but which shall have no power for evil against the people represented by Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego, and the one like the Son of God; they shall come forth unharmed, unsinged, unchanged and inodorous of the fire.

For these are the daughters of Zion, to whom the Spirit saith: "Arise and thresh: for I will make thine horn iron, and I will make thy hoofs brass; and thou shalt beat in pieces many peoples; and I will consecrate their spoil to Yahweh, and their wealth to the Adon of the whole earth" (Mic. 4:13). So that while Israel is passing through the furnace under the conduct of the saints, and are themselves being purged from dross, they are also made use of by their commanders as a torch of fire among the sheaves, or a lion among flocks of goats (Mic. 5:8; Zech 12:6), to destroy the power and kingdoms of the world, after the allegorical example of their transit out of Egypt into the land of their inheritance; for though passing under the rod themselves, they became also a rod of iron in the hand of Yahweh for the destruction of the nations, whose iniquity was full.
