God’s People Ridiculed and Humiliated
Not only is this Israel’s history, but it also represents the persecution of all those who become God’s people through Jesus Christ. And Israel, like those who refuse to live by the mark of the beast, will suffer violence during the global tribulation. But God’s burning zeal will come against all nations for their malice against His people. Even in this year of 2022, the global system of the human robots has declared God’s people to be their possession. From every angle, the global community has crushed the Gospel of Jesus Christ and all things related to the God of Israel. There is constantly malicious talk and slander towards the people of God as the church is desolated. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is plundered, and God’s people are ridiculed and scorned on a daily basis. That is what those who live by the mark of the beast do. God promises that a day is coming when those nations will also suffer scorn. God’s judgment is coming.

“Therefore, prophesy concerning the land of Israel and say to the mountains and hills, to the ravines and valleys: ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I speak in my jealous wrath because you have suffered the scorn of the nations. Therefore, this is what the Sovereign Lord says: I swear with uplifted hand that the nations around you will also suffer scorn.” Ezekiel 36:6-7

Promise of a Fruitful Land for God’s People
In the time of Ezekiel, Israel was destroyed but today it is an independent nation. In 1948, Israel was declared a nation and soon after that the Israelites migrated home to Israel. But the New Jerusalem is no longer for Israel alone but is a promise made to all those who hold to the testimony of Jesus Christ. Even then, the global tribulation is progressing forward, and God’s people will suffer violence. That includes God’s people of Israel along with those adopted into the family through Jesus Christ. The global tribulation comes through the international community that governs by the mark of the beast. It is only when the whole family is gathered into the New Jerusalem that there will be complete restoration and vindication.

“‘But you, mountains of Israel, will produce branches and fruit for my people Israel, for they will soon come home. I am concerned for you and will look on you with favor; you will be plowed and sown, and I will cause many people to live on you—yes, all of Israel. The towns will be inhabited, and the ruins rebuilt.” Ezekiel 36:8-10

People of God Accused of Causing their own Desolation
Part of the malicious talk and slander coming from the world of human robots is to accuse God’s people of being responsible for their own persecution. They say that the followers of Jesus Christ and God’s people of Israel are depriving and devouring their own people. That assumption is made because those who live for God and reject the internal government are not welcomed into the social network of human robots. When we get to the New Jerusalem as one family that will all change.

“‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Because some say to you, “You devour people and deprive your nation of its children,” therefore you will no longer devour people or make your nation childless, declares the Sovereign Lord. No longer will I make you hear the taunts of the nations, and no longer will you suffer the scorn of the peoples or cause your nation to fall, declares the Sovereign Lord.’” Ezekiel 36:13-15

People of God Scattered
God’s people of Israel were involved in a lot of rebellion. They rebelled in the wilderness directly against God’s laws, and they rebelled against the governments that held them captive. Their behavior was detestable in every way. God scattered them all around the globe due to that. This explains why Israel was never an established nation after that until 1948. God’s way is not through rebellion, but His way is through the Spirit of Jesus Christ. Likewise, in the soon coming global persecution, those with a testimony for Jesus Christ will be scattered. Faithful and true Christians will not be given the freedom to grow together, instead they are kept apart and eliminated.

“I dispersed them among the nations, and they were scattered through the countries; I judged them according to their conduct and their actions. And wherever they went among the nations they profaned my Holy name, for it was said of them, ‘These are the Lord’s people, and yet they had to leave His land.’ I had concern for my Holy name, which the people of Israel profaned among the nations where they had gone.” Ezekiel 36:19-21

God Did it for His Holiness not for Israel
What God did was not for Israel, but for God’s Holy name. God established Israel as a nation in 1948 and gathered all the people of Israel from all around the world They migrated to Israel to populate it and make it fruitful. It is a sign to all the nations around the world of God’s Holy name.

“Therefore, say to the Israelites, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: It is not for your sake, people of Israel, that I am going to do these things, but for the sake of my Holy name, which you have profaned among the nations where you have gone.” Ezekiel 36:22

New Jerusalem
In 1948 Israel was declared a nation. Soon after that, there was a mass migration to Israel and the New Jerusalem was born. There is also the New Jerusalem that will come after the great tribulation and after the present heaven and earth passes away. All of God’s people will be there, joined together as family through Jesus Christ. God wants our humanness filled with the Spirit of Jesus Christ. The human robots who live by the mark of the beast will not be in the New Jerusalem. They discard human sentimentality and trash the Spirit of Christ. God will give us a new heart and a new spirit, with a new heaven and new earth, within the New Jerusalem.

“‘For I will take you out of the nations; I will gather you from all the countries and bring you back into your own land. I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean; I will cleanse you from all your impurities and from all your idols. I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. We will be His people and He will be our God.” Ezekiel 36:24-26

Jesus Christ Cleanses of Sin
Through the Cross of Jesus Christ, we are adopted into the family of God. In the eyes of God, we are made blameless and will inherit a portion of the New Jerusalem with the nation of Israel. We will live together as one people through the Lamb of God. Those who live by the mark of the beast has desolated the Holy things of God, but Jesus is coming soon.

“‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: On the day I cleanse you from all your sins, I will resettle your towns, and the ruins will be rebuilt. The desolate land will be cultivated instead of lying desolate in the sight of all who pass through it. They will say, “This land that was laid waste has become like the garden of Eden; the cities that were lying in ruins, desolate and destroyed, are now fortified and inhabited.” Then the nations around you that remain will know that I the Lord have rebuilt what was destroyed and have replanted what was desolate. I the Lord have spoken, and I will do it.’ “This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Once again I will yield to Israel’s plea and do this for them: I will make their people as numerous as sheep, as numerous as the flocks for offerings at Jerusalem during her appointed festivals. So will the ruined cities be filled with flocks of people. Then they will know that I am the Lord.” Ezekiel 36:33-38
