There are many who acknowledge that the biblical Ephraim and Manasseh, sons of Joseph, son of Jacob/Israel, are represented by Great Britain and America. They, like Joseph, have it backwards, but Jacob knew exactly what he was doing.
Finding our Ancestral Roots has become a pastime and an important aspect of life for many lately with the availability of DNA tests and programs to help people reconnect with the roots of their Family Tree. But most can only go back a few generations and a few hundred years at best from their own with which to connect. But what if you could go back millennia? Back to the beginning? Back to the roots!
Ancient Roots of Worship
Looking back at the ways of ancient Egypt, Babylon and Assyria, we find many of those ways still being followed by modern-day people to this day. They’re not aware of their roots. But these practices can provide important clues for those who are searching and want to know their own roots.
And in that day the deaf shall hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity and out of darkness.
The Light of the Moon
The Light of the Moon shall be as the light of the Sun, and the Light of the Sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that the Lord binds up the breach of His people and heals the stroke of their wound… And you shall have a song in the night… And the LORD shall cause His glorious Word to be heard.
(2) Isa 40:1-3 “Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith your God. Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem, and cry unto her, that her warfare [appointed time] is accomplished, that her iniquity pardoned: The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness: Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the dessert a highway for our God.
(3) Isa 40:4 “Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill made low: the crooked shall be made straight, rough places plain:”
“Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of Adam is revealed.”
Jesus warned that the latter days at the time of the end, would be as the days of Noah (Matt 24:37). What would those days be like?
“God looked upon the earth, and behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth. And God said to Noah, The end of all flesh is come before Me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.”
In the days of Noah, he alone was found to be righteous and perfect or blameless. Noah walked with God. He and those who were with him in the Ark were as a remnant and the only ones who remained alive. A similar situation exists here at the end of time. These are times of Tribulation such as the inhabitants of the earth have never seen before. The world is corrupt and filled with violence. There is no truth in it!
The idea of Rapture is NOT in the Bible! “According to some millenarian teaching, it is the “transport” of a “believer” from earth to heaven at the Second Coming of Christ.” They actually purport that “the chosen” will be lifted up bodily into the sky, leaving nothing but a pile of clothes behind.
Many characters in Roman mythology, including the Roman progenitor, Aeneas, have been lifted up bodily into heaven. He is recognized by them as the god, Jupiter, from whom they got the Black Madonna. Millenarianism itself is actually based in Zoroastrianism which is an ancient pagan, Persian religion.
