5.06-Home of Godīs People
"And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues;"
Here we have a voice from Heaven warning the people of God to flee Babylon before it is too late. First of all, who are the people of God referred to here? The Jews are the chosen people of God in the context of this verse. This verse tells us that many Jews will be living in Babylon during the 70th Week. Itīs interesting to know that twice as many Jews live in America, than in Israel itself. It is the temporary home of Godīs people. But the Bible clearly says that when Jesus returns to earth, all the Jews scattered around the world will also return to Israel.
30)"And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven; and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31) And he shall send his angels a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other."
Before this glorious event happens, the Jews will be hated and persecuted all over the world, especially in America. When the rapture occurs, the restraining and hindering force on total apostasy and evil will be made silent. There will be silence in Heaven from Godīs throne, thus enabling Satan to carry out his plan, (Revelation 8:1).
The Jews will be left on the earth at the rapture for their unbelief, so during the 70th Week the beast and false prophet will turn on them. Since so many Jews live in America, where else could the persecution be greater. After war breaks out in the Middle East, the Jews will be blamed for all the troubles. The persecution also comes because many Jews will realize they have been deceived in the "peace treaty", when the American president stands in their Temple and declares himself to be God.
There will a true spiritual awakening among the Jews in America and Israel. Many will turn to Jesus and preach His coming to destroy the beast and America. This will enrage a jealous, hateful President who wants the Jews to worship him. The Jews will refuse because of their new found love for Jesus, their returning Messiah.
