     People wonder how our Father could leave America and Canada and so forth, out of the Scriptures. I mean, America is the superpower of superpowers in the end times. Our military forces make the return to Jerusalem possible for the good and the bad fig. So, how could Father possibly leave this country out?

     He didn’t. It’s just that people don’t understand the migration of this tribe of Ephraim, that God just came down on…..He said that He is going to scatter them all over the world.

     Isaiah 18:1 Woe to the land shadowing with wings, which is beyond the rivers of Ethiopia:

     You place yourself where this writing is and look over the rivers of Ethiopia and go right on over, where are you going to end up at? America. That’s where you’re going to end up.

     What about these wings? A nation with wings? What happened at Kitty Hawk in N.C. with the Wright Brothers? It’s where wings were placed on and flight became possible and it became a thing of action where today we’re protected by those wings.

     Isaiah 18:2 That sendeth ambassadors by the sea, even in vessels of bulrushes upon the waters, saying, Go, ye swift messengers, to a nation scattered and peeled, to a people terrible from their beginning hitherto; a nation meted out and trodden down, whose land the rivers have spoiled!

     Even in vessels of bulrushes upon the waters. That’s the steamship.

     ✡  Bulrushes -- OT:1573 gome' (go'-meh); from OT:1572; properly, an absorbent, i.e. the bulrush (from its porosity); specifically the papyrus:

     ✡   Root Word -- OT:1572 gama' (gaw-maw'); a primitive root (literally or figuratively) to absorb:

     To a nation scattered and peeled. That means tall and clean-shaven.

     ✡  Scattered -- OT:4900 mashak (maw-shak'); a primitive root; to draw, used in a great variety of applications (including to sow, to sound, to prolong, to develop, to march, to remove, to delay, to be tall.

     ✡ Peeled -- OT: 4178 mowrat (mo-rawt'); from OT:3399; obstinate, i.e. independent:

     ✡  Root Word -- OT:3399 yarat (yaw-rat'); a primitive root; to precipitate or hurl (rush) headlong; (intransitively) to be rash:

     To a people terrible from their beginning hitherto. In less than 250 years we became a superpower. An accident? I don't think so. Many, many countries have been around for thousands of years, inhabited by the 6th day Creation.

     But not until Adam and Eve were formed of the clay, on that 8th day Creation, did the Hebrew race come into existence and after the Assyrian captivity those Ten Tribes migrated north into Europe, the British Isles, Canada, and America.

     Be careful here, I'm not talking about JEWS, I'm talking about the HEBREW peoples. There was only ONE Tribe of Jews and that was Judah and they never migrated, they remained in the area of Jerusalem.

     A nation meted out and trodden down, whose land the rivers have spoiled. That the rivers have divided. The Colorado, the Mississippi, all the rivers that split up this great nation, that parted it and people would think that our Father would leave America out of the Scriptures?

     What is this tall and peeled? To some people, they are very tall and our troops are clean shaven whereby hygiene is easy to keep in combat and in bad situations such as fox holes and so forth.

     Isaiah 18:3 All ye inhabitants of the world, and dwellers on the earth, see ye, when he lifteth up an ensign on the mountains; and when he bloweth a trumpet, hear ye.

     Where are these ensigns? What is our ensign? We sing about it. One nation under God with liberty and justice for all. What do we have in New York City that all these people come to, with all these various standards?

     It’s called the United Nations, situated right here in the good ole USA, America, and when you reach in your pocket and you wonder why America is so blessed…do you understand, we feed the world and have…Canada and America grow enough grain to feed the world.

     We have given away….we send ambassadors and have given away enough, through lend, lease and other things down through the years, and supported nations that are poor until we will be so rich you wouldn’t know what to do with it if we had just simply kept everything here at home. Wouldn’t know what to do with it.

     That’s the way that God operates and when that trumpet sounds then that superpower of superpowers and her allies, are an awesome force.

     Isaiah 18:4 For so the Lord said unto me, I will take my rest, and I will consider in my dwelling place like a clear heat upon herbs, and like a cloud of dew in the heat of harvest.

     I will take my rest means that our Father is going to watch, patiently, in His dwelling place. Do you know where that is? It's anywhere He wants to be. He's going to watch, He's going to consider, He's going to be patient, He's going to see if what we're doing in our daily lives is consistent with His over-all Plan.

     You know what? I'm going to ramble for just a minute. I don't think that most people REALLY believe that our Father is in control. My goodness. Have you not learned anything from these last 18 chapters of Isaiah? And if He really is in control, why does He allow us to be stricken with diseases like cancer?

     Well, He didn't bring cancer on us but you can bet that He knew it was coming because of how we live, what we eat, what industry is doing to the food to make an extra buck. And we do this of our own free will and He cannot interfere because this is what our life in these bodies is all about. He cannot interfere in one area of our lives and not in another.

     HE didn't bring all these disasters on us, we did it to ourselves so when your life is devastated by a death in the family, and you curse Him for not healing that person, all you do is demonstrate, TO HIM, that you have no understanding at all of what He's about.

     And if we were to see that He is real and He eventually does interfere in our lives and we know that He is doing it, we will bitch about Him ignoring a different part of our life and we will continue to expect Him to take care of us and protect us in all aspects of human life. That's not what this life is all about...that's what the eternity is all about.

     Having FAITH is what sets us apart from the rest of the world. Some would say that that's a cop-out, that only weak people have faith in something like God and that's another error in our judgment. We think that we can handle everything that happens in our file and we cannot.

     He's there to help us, all we have to do is believe on Him.


     The heat and moisture ripen the crop and we do overproduce. Praise God for it, that we’re a land of plenty, that the heat and the dew matures the crops where we don’t blast in the field and produce, produce, produce.

     Isaiah 18:5 For afore the harvest, when the bud is perfect, and the sour grape is ripening in the flower, he shall both cut off the sprigs with pruning hooks, and take away and cut down the branches.

     Our Father will prune it and He’ll do it for us.

     Our Father is well in control and our Father is well in charge. There are no accidents.


     “Well it just so happened that this nation was situated just right.”


     Oh, you bet it was and it was planned long ago from verse one when God said


     “You cross over the river of Ethiopia


     and, actually, if you look even before the plates broke that this plate broke away from that African plate and if you don’t believe that’s true go up to Nebraska to Ash Falls Park, the State Park, and you will find ancient artifacts, remains, of African animals. Five different types of camels, rhinos, which fell and are still exactly as they fell from the ash fall of the volcano in Idaho.

     I mean, not even scattered. No carnivore has bothered them and even the birds themselves, African birds, in Nebraska. Not just one or two but a lot and you know what God meant by over the rivers of Ethiopia and into that fertile place.

     Yeah, He situated it to where it is so fruitful.

     Isaiah 18:6 They shall be left together unto the fowls of the mountains, and to the beasts of the earth: and the fowls shall summer upon them, and all the beasts of the earth shall winter upon them.

     We feed everyone. We are so blessed, and like I said, we’ve given away enough money, and it’s really kind of sad, our government can’t seem to take care of our own money so we created what we call the Federal Reserve.

     Only there’s nothing Federal about it, it’s privately owned. A lot of people don’t question the fact that it’s a federal reserve. Nothing federal about it. We borrow money, ok, and it would seem that some people do try to reach their hands in and take from the bountiful gifts of Almighty God and sometimes our people kinda go to sleep and do not stay on guard as perhaps they should.

     And protect that that is ours, the very blessings of God Himself and when somebody is elected to an office in this great nation, what a blessing that is. To protect the people, the country, the nation, to take care of it. Unselfishly, to see that things are done right, as God would have them done.

     What a perfect blessing that is. How precious God is to those that love Him, those that follow Him.

     Isaiah 18:7 In that time shall the present be brought unto the Lord of hosts of a people scattered and peeled, and from a people terrible from their beginning hitherto; a nation meted out and trodden under foot, whose land the rivers have spoiled, to the place of the name of the Lord of hosts, the mount Zion. KJV

     God promised that He would scatter those people but He also promised those, that remnant, that stay with Him, that carry that truth, that they would always be blessed and boy does He keep His word.

     You see, the national bird, that eagle, that “wing” and those ambassadors that are sent out from this great nation, again, all of that is no accident, written way back here even before the Assyrian captivity, that it would take place in that way and it was the Assyrian captivity that scattered our people over the Caucasus Mountains, later settling in Europe and many later coming to this great nation.

     It’s no accident, it’s part of God’s Word, it’s God’s truth and many people fail to realize that because they are lost. They don’t know who they are. Why? They didn’t follow the Word, they followed too many strange plantings of falsehoods when it would be so very easy to trace your roots, to find out where you came from.

     To see the ancients of our people, the migration, and the delight in knowing that you are of the children of God and understand why we are blessed.
