Jerusalem – The Destroyer of Nations

One of many threads that run through the past 70 years of history, is Jerusalem. The world has been desperate to control her, and failed – every time. The Vatican tried to lay claim, and failed. Jordan tried to keep her, and failed. Just after her capture by Israel, some Israelis tried to give her away, and failed. Almost every American president since then, attempted to wrest Jerusalem away, and failed. The Palestinians made it the cornerstone of their aspirations, and failed.

To burden yourself with Jerusalem, is to invite utter failure.

I lived there for quite a while and watched a lot of this in real-time, and would have been completely mystified – except that the Bible foretold all of this.

Jerusalem – The Destroyer of Nations

I am convinced that the Israeli government would give up Jerusalem in a heartbeat, if they had iron-clad, diamond-hard guarantees of peace. They are as secular as can be, and are as religious as a box of rocks.

However, the average Israeli isn’t like the leadership of Israel, and would throw their leaders out, should they attempt to compromise the sovereignty of Jerusalem. I’ve watched this happen, for myself, and it’s quite interesting to see.

Jerusalem Insanity

On the other hand, the Palestinians would have their own state, today – and more – if they would give up their irrational claim on Jerusalem. They have been offered everything under the sun, and have denied it all – because of Jerusalem.

And, we know that the Antichrist will declare himself at Jerusalem.

EVERYONE is insane over Jerusalem.


Well, it shouldn’t surprise us, because God spoke of this through Zechariah:

And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.Zechariah 12:3

And then:

And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.Zechariah 12:9

It is interesting that God doesn’t say Israel – but Jerusalem. Yes, Israel is important – very important. But, Jerusalem is the key. And, if you fiddle with that key, you’ll get destroyed.

What This Is Not

And, I love how many try to twist the words of God, here in Zechariah, to fit their own view of scripture.

Is this the last battle, at the end of the millennium?

Of course not. You’d have to twist the whole Bible to believe that – which many do. God creates a new heaven, a new Earth and a new Jerusalem right after the last battle – which means that the events of Zechariah 12:10 through 13:9 cannot fit. So, this is NOT the end of the Millennium.

Is this the battle, between God and Satan, at the end of the Tribulation?

Of course not. The Antichrist will have already taken over Jerusalem, by then – and the Israeli Christians would have fled the city. If anything, God is recapturing Jerusalem from the Antichrist, after the Tribulation.

So, what is this?

The first Gog and Magog.

(The second Gog and Magog (Revelation 20) happens at the end of the Millennium – just before God creates a New Heaven and a New Earth – and a New Jerusalem.)

So, the next question is this:

How does God destroy the nations that come against Jerusalem?

Ezekiel’s Fire

Ezekiel’s Fire.

That will be the biggest solar flare in the history of the world. And, it will be the biggest smackdown that the New World Order has ever seen. They will try to capture Jerusalem, and get whacked.

You can see evidence of this solar flare, here:

And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the Lord.Ezekiel 39:6

And here:

In that day, saith the Lord, I will smite every horse with astonishment, and his rider with madness: and I will open mine eyes upon the house of Judah, and will smite every horse of the people with blindness.Zechariah 12:4

Along with:

And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.Zechariah 12:9

And here:

Moreover 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 bindeth up the breach of his people, and healeth the stroke of their wound.Isaiah 30:26

That, brothers and sisters, is a MASSIVE solar flare. It is God’s EMP attack upon the New World Order, and no one – except maybe in East Asia – will be spared.

And, did you notice the context of this event in Isaiah?

The Salvation Of Israel

Right. I highlighted it. It’s this:

…in the day that the Lord bindeth up the breach of his people, and healeth the stroke of their wound.

THAT is the salvation of Israel.

And, when you read Isaiah 30, Ezekiel 39 and Zechariah 12, you will notice the same context:

The salvation of Israel

Unfortunately, those who reject the coming salvation of Israel won’t be ready for this. Nor will those who believe that they will be raptured away before the salvation of Israel.

Both groups will be completely unready for Ezekiel’s Fire. And, in a sense, they are unprepared because they too have burdened themselves with Jerusalem – and will be cut in pieces along with the nations.

Will You Be Ready?

The question is whether YOU will be ready. I certainly hope so, and I am dedicated – at this moment – to help you wake up to the danger that is fast approaching. I cannot say exactly when this event will occur, but it is not far off.

Ezekiel’s Fire is coming.

It will come from God, because the nations will have gathered themselves against Jerusalem. And, because of this, those nations will be destroyed.

But, Israel will be saved.

I truly hope that you’ll be ready for this

  1. How do we prepare for a massive solar flare? Will anyone in the northern hemisphere survive?

    Also, many people writing about the times we are in are being called to fast and pray for the next 30 days or so. Do you sense that urgency within the next 30 days?

    • Hi Sarah,

      I see zero chance of this over the next 30 days.

      I’ve been in the process of getting a website out that will be focused on this solar flare. The website will be, and I hope to address all of these issues.

      For now, rest assured that there is time before this happens. You will know when Gog and Magog prepare to come down. I certainly will be screaming across the Internet, when the time comes – if I can.

      The key will be to walk with the Lord, as closely as you can. Have a safe location far from a city. Have food. Be able to get water that does not need electricity to get it to you – i.e., no public water works. Prepare for others. With what’s left buy silver and gold.

      Better yet, get to East Asia. I believe that the effects of this solar flare will be the least, there.

      You’ll hear more about this from me, in the near future.

      You don’t need to fear, but you do need to prepare.

      I hope that this helps, Sarah.

      Yours in Christ,

  2. John …I am dizzy … second Magog … twist and turn … Ezek. fire ? Let’s talk about Jesus…the key to Zechariah …in that day …spirit poured out, mourning, fountain opened, living waters spreading. Thank you for allowing me to make just two points without throwing rocks at me….1) Isaiah 60:19 – 61:2 … the Lord is the light! and 2) Isaiah 65:15-18 … “And ye shall leave your name for a curse unto my chosen: for the Lord God shall slay thee, and call his servants by another name” … ” I create new heavens and a new earth” … ” I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy” Focus on Jesus …this requires spiritual application. We Christians are a joy to the Lord, but a burdensome stone for this world! What is the strong delusion ?

    • Hi mike,

      I’m sorry that my article is the cause of such distress. I don’t like doing that. Nor do I like throwing rocks at people, although it seems that I do it, anyway.

      The strong delusion, as I understand it now, is the idea that we can just keep doing what we are doing, without preparing for what is coming.

      – For the Pretribbers, that’s because God will whisk everyone away before the bad stuff hits the fan.

      – For the Israel-haters, they believe that they have all the time in the world – and that they can fight off this plague of evil.

      Both sides will be caught, and destroyed – because it will be too late, when the realize that they were wrong.

      My goal is to save the lives of brothers and sisters in Christ so that they can serve the Lord in the dark days ahead. But, far too many are using false teaching to ignore the obvious.

      Thank you, Mike.

      • Hello John … I would like to see you put out a letter entitled ” what is the strong delusion ” watchman what of the night ? ….what must take place before Jesus comes? …. what is the sign of His coming? … what is the strong delusion ? …what of the night?

        • Hi mike,

          Since it takes me so long to get to comments that originate over the weekend, it’s not fair to you that this will seem like a repeat. So, let me add a bit to my answer to your previous comment.

          Ultimately, the strong delusion will be of the Antichrist. Those false Christians among us will be caught by this false Messiah’s message and follow him. And, the true Christians will be caught, suffer and be killed – where they are.

          The time to escape this ‘delusion’ is now. It will be too late, once these delusions are shown to be what they are.

          We must hold the truth tightly.

          I hope that this answered your question, Mike. Um… and maybe you’ll need to answer it for us – if what I said isn’t enough.

          Yours in Christ,

  3. Hi John,

    If the Fall of 1966 through the Fall of 1967 was a jubilee year (symbolized by the return of Jerusalem to the tribe of Judah), then fifty (50) years later (the Fall of 2016 through the Fall of 2017) would be a jubilee.

    Lev 25:10 And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubile unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family.

    What would cause over three million Jews to leave the U.S. and return to Israel?

    Could a massive solar flare that sends most of the world back to the eighteenth century, while Israel remains in the 21st century, because they have hardened their electrical grid, cause a mass migration of Jews back to Israel?

    • Hi Michael Haller,

      Interesting point. I certainly hope that Israel has hardened her electrical grid. Unfortunately, Zechariah 13:8 indicates that 2/3rds of Israelis will die when all this happens – whether the electrical grid survives, or not.

      That verse has always filled me with dread for the country that I love most.

      It really is so very hard to see a way through all of this. I guess that we prepare as much as we can, for ourselves and our loved ones – and seek God’s protection and direction.

      Great thoughts, Michael. I wish that I was less ambiguous – as well as more optimistic.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

    • Consider that after a devastating solar flare, very little in the USA will be functional, and that will make it difficult if not impossible for 3 million Jews to get from here to Israel …..

      • Hi DRG,

        Unfortunately, the situation is far, far worse than that. It’s in this verse:

        And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the Lord, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein. – Zechariah 13:8

        That verse deals with the same moment in time, and I wish that it didn’t. I know of many who have tried to dodge this verse, but they really can’t.

        All that I can say is that God has a plan, and none that are in His plan, will be lost.

        Great point, DRG.

        Yours in Christ,

        John Little

    • Hi Gerald Slaughter,

      I’m certainly not against it, and have enjoyed each and every Shabbat, while living in Jerusalem.

      However, I believe that it is a mistake to advocate the following of the Law. Paul teaches in Galatians, that if you seek to follow one part of the Law, you must follow all of it. All 613 laws.

      That is impossible – by design.

      So no, I do not believe that observing the Sabbath is necessary. But, if someone wants to keep the Sabbath of their own free will, it won’t send them to Hell.

      I hope that answers your question, Gerald.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  4. Thank you john. I live in Ireland, not a lot of money and a lot of debt! I do have chickens and a veg garden and a small silver stack. What can i do to prepare for Ezekiel’s Fire to protect my family. Yours in Christ Jesus… Ian

    • Hi Ian,

      Ireland, will probably suffer much of this flare, so I can only hope that you have good neighbors and a source of water that won’t require electricity to get.

      However, it sounds like you are well on your way in your preparations, so you will fare better than most. Food, water and good neighbors will always be the most important points.

      The good thing is that Ezekiel’s Fire is some time in the future, and I’m trying to put together something that will address everything in detail. But, I’m just getting started on that.

      The main thing is that you have started the mental process of preparation, as well as the physical. This increases your chance of survival dramatically. The most important thing is to walk as closely with the Lord as you can. There is NOTHING that He cannot do.

      God bless you, Ian.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

    • Hi Matthew,

      That IS an excellent article. Thank you!

      I’ve enjoyed Trey Smith’s work – even though he’s quite unusual and… VERY …controversial. We always have to be careful to filter everything through the Bible, but I appreciate what GodInANutshell is trying to do.

      Thank you, Matthew.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  5. Hi John …I must say I rather appreciate your last remarks to my comment … and thank you for posting my contrary letter … but, I do not think that you know what the strong delusion is, and you certainly should … I actually agree with you as to the error of the pre-trib. position. Now John … what is the “strong” delusion ?

    • Hi mike,

      Actually, I believe that this ‘strong delusion’ is multifaceted. I have solidly identified two – the pre-trib and we-are-Israel lies. And then there are the prosperity doctrines, along with a host of even more carnal ones.

      I currently believe that this ‘strong delusion’ is not a doctrine – but a blindness. In fact, it might even be a spirit.

      But, I say the word ‘currently’ on purpose. We may have an even stronger delusion coming soon.

      Thank you, Mike.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  6. Hello John,

    I just want you to know that I look forward to reading your insightful posts.

    Is there any reason why this ‘fire’ couldn’t involve a nuclear exchange as well? I understand that God ‘sends’ the fire, which seems to indicate a Solar Flare, but that does not necessarily mean he won’t use man’s destructive forces to do the job.


    • Hi Ken F.,

      This could happen, and I do not completely rule it out.

      However, there are two key points that point us away from the use of a nuclear weapon IN THIS INSTANCE. It’s in these two verses:

      And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the Lord. – Ezekiel 39:6

      Moreover 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 bindeth up the breach of his people, and healeth the stroke of their wound. – Isaiah 30:26

      It would be hard for people to know that God did this, if it was done through a nuclear weapon. AND, we directly see the sun involved in this.

      So, I don’t think that we can escape the idea that this is a solar flare.

      Does this mean that an EMP weapon, or nuclear strike is out of the question – at a different time and place?

      Of course not. In fact, I expect to see some use of nuclear weapons in our future.

      I hope that this answered your question, Ken. Thank you.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little
