Abraham, Father of MANY NATIONS–But Which Nations Are They?

The Lost Tribes of Israel have to be in the earth today.  They are only lost to those who do not have an ear to hear and an eye to see. 

Scholars say that after being taken into captivity around 720 B.C., they were totally dispersed and never heard from again.  They say that they melted into all of the other peoples of the earth and that they no longer exists as the direct descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (whose name was changed by God to Israel).

That simply cannot be true, for many prophecies in scripture say that these descendants of Abraham would become nations.  And not just any old run of the mill nations either.  For Abraham was told by God, face to face, “Thou shalt be a father of many nations”  (1).    

But Abraham had just one little problem; his wife was barren and he had no heir to fulfill this prophecy.  And he was running out of time, for he was about 100 years old, and his wife Sarai was 90 and well into menopause.   It was difficult to believe, but “he believed the LORD (Yahweh); and the LORD reckoned it to him as righteousness (2)

From then on, God looked on Abraham as His righteous son.  Here is the first seed lesson of what God’s faith can do–just believe God–the thing hardest for man to do.  And in that same passage God gave him and his offspring all the land from the Nile in Egypt to the Euphrates. 

Now, he just had to get this family started.  Still no first born son…until that day when God yet appeared to Abram again.  This time God made a covenant with Abram.  In fact God changed his name to Abraham, “for a father of many nations have I made thee.”  Many nations.   And I will be your God and “establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant,” or agreement (3).

And it was then that God blessed Sarai and changed her name to Sarah, meaning “princess,” and told her that He would give her a son “of her,” and she shall be a mother of nations; kings of people shall be of her.” 

And their miracle son that God promised them came a year later as spoken.  And they named him Isaac.   And this great promise of nations and kings was renewed by God to Isaac.  And then Isaac blessed his son Jacob with these words: “And God Almighty bless thee, and make thee fruitful, and multiply thee, that thou mayest be a multitude of people; and give thee the blessing of Abraham, to thee, and to thy seed with thee; that thou mayest inherit the land…which God gave unto Abraham” (4). 

Later God appeared to Jacob to renew His covenant of nations with him.  “And God said unto him, I am God Almighty: be fruitful and multiply; a nation and a company of nations shall be of thee, and kings shall come out of thy loins”.

Who are these “many nations”?  “Declare if thou hast understanding.”  In the seed book of Genesis, prophecies spoken by God to Abraham declare that he will be the father of many nations.  Can we discover who these nations are?  Did not Christ say, “Seek and ye shall find”?  Can we read the other prophecies about these nations that developed out of the offspring of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob/Israel and come to the knowledge of just who these nations are in history?

Scripture cannot be broken, for God cannot lie.  He spoke of many nations out of Abraham.  This could not be the Jewish Israeli state, for it is only one nation, and the Jews have not been a nation since 70 A. D.  But it was “nations.”  Christ spoke of the “Lost sheep of the House of Israel.”  They are so important that He said He was only sent to them (6).  We must find out, for they are the key that unlocks the prophetic utterances for these last days.  KWH…to be continued

Bob Chapman: Deflationary Depression Coming Soon After Inflation

Bob Chapman is forecasting some dark times for all of us.  The world economy is going belly-up as evidenced by the the economic collapse of several countries.  He writes:

“The collapse of currencies and nations won’t happen overnight, because their demise has been planned, and a subtle collapse is in process. Our guess is that next year is when the collapse will finally take place followed by one of the greatest deflationary depressions of all time. During the last 2-1/2 years all the toxic investments have been and will continue to be transferred from the Illuminist banks, brokerage houses, insurance companies and transnational conglomerates to the public.

“The Federal Reserve is the repository for this junk, which includes Treasuries and Agencies. That means the public foots the bill. Every government and bank in the world will be affected. This magical game of 3-card-Monte will never work and the Illuminists know it won’t work. That is why they have war on demand to distract the public and to escape punishment for the devastating thing they have brought upon mankind.

“What we are facing is as bad if not worse than the collapse of the Lombard system in Venice in 1348, the year of the plague and the collapse of the Hanseanic League in the 1600s, the creation of the Medici’s. For starters we already have 19 bankrupt or near bankrupt major countries and many others that will be pulled into the vortex of financial and economic calamity. In each country we see the Illuminists doing their evil work, legends in their own minds, in a system that they know cannot survive. They are waiting for orders to pull the plug in each and every country. These masters of the universe all know that prosperity cannot be created by printing money and issuing credit indefinitely. They know full well that such a system cannot survive…

“The idea of too big to fail will persist even after any deflationary collapse. Nothing will change unless the elitists want it to change – the concept is at the base of power in the financial world. This finance bubble can only be disrupted by the failure of national economies. There are 19 in that position presently, and what it boils down to is whether and when these elitists want to pull the plug on liquidity and seriously want to enter a deflationary era. For the time being, over the next 18 months, inflation and perhaps hyperinflation will prevail. Politicians are 90% in the pockets of these people, so unless we can unseat more than half of the incumbents in Congress, the elitist grip on our society will prevail. In the meantime it is inflation and or hyperinflation followed by deflation this year and next year…

“Just as in the 1930s the Federal Reserve will eventually take us into a deflationary depression. That is what Greece was all about. The table is being set for the end of inflation probably within the next two years…

“We see a general contraction of credit worldwide and unless reversed the inevitable will unfold. What is even more dangerous than in the 1930s is the enormous leverage that exists today. When this come down it will be with a thundering roar. That is because few have the ability to pay. It is totally inconceivable that the US government can pay back its liabilities. That means that other nations that hold 60-1/2% of their foreign exchange in US dollars will take tremendous losses from which they won’t easily recover. China and Japan, along with Middle East oil producers, will take unbelievable losses. All creditors will be big losers.

“In this wringer no nation seems to want to reduce spending or is prepared for any kind of austerity. Greece is a good example. Each day sees more and more demonstrations. No one wants to take the economic and financial pain. The good days are supposed to go on endlessly. Not only does the public not want reduced employment, but they also do not want increased taxation. What is extremely interesting is that those in charge of monetary theory at the Fed know that monetary inflation does not work. They also know that the minute they can no longer control deflation with inflationary monetary policy the game is over. The Fed and other central banks are currently playing a very dangerous game. That is keeping inflation up, but only enough to stop hyperinflation. This is like sitting on the edge of a knife. One false move the game is over. Global credit is evaporating and the Fed and others are attempting at the same time to remove some of the excess in the system. We do not think it will work. If it does not work it is depression for many years to come.”  [http://theinternationalforecaster.com/International_Forecaster_Weekly/Pondering_Our_Collapse_While_We_Watch_Others_Fall

Pretty dark stuff.  Our initial reaction is to slay the messenger, laugh scornfully, or make like an ostrich.  What we need to do is check out the track record.  Was Bob Chapman right before?  If so, we better listen.  KWH
