“Peace, Peace” and Megiddo

“For from the least of them even unto the greatest of them every one is given to covetousness; and from the prophet even unto the priest every one dealeth falsely. They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace.” (Jeremiah 6:13,14)

Megiddo

“The French military and political leader Napoleon Bonaparte once stood at the valley of Megiddo, which is a large tract of land and inland valley south of the Lower Galilee region in Israel, and remarked, “All the armies of the world could maneuver their forces on this vast plain.” Napoleon at that time either knowingly or unknowingly made a prophetic statement, because the Bible specifically states that one day all the world’s armies will indeed converge on that location and be met in battle by God Himself.”  {https://www.compellingtruth.org/battle-of-Armageddon.html}

final battle

NOTE:  Surely you have noticed that all the nations in the world are now at play in the Middle East Region as preparation for the final great battle.  Right now, it is centered around Syria, but the enemies of the US and Israel along with the 3 frogs of Megiddo are just itching for a large attack on Israel. 
America has many more reasons for optimism under President Trump, world peace has much less reason for optimism because of the inevitability of Megiddo. Megiddo is bad in that Israel will run red with blood for 200 miles, and you think of the size of the armies for all that blood, it is good in that there is also the Bible assurance that the good guys and nations are going to win. {Below the scene of the Jezreel valley from the Megiddo Tel where the final massive armies of nations will gather for the final shedding of blood.}

Why Meggido?  It has always been the right location for battles being at a major junction of the highway of Nations and Kings.  Since Syria at the northern border 17 miles from Meggido, once the northern kingdom of Israel before rebellion and splitting of the united kingdom under King David.  Wikipedia lists some of the battles there of history:  { https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Megiddo}

Battle of Megiddo refers to one of the major battles fought near the ancient site of Megiddo in the Jezreel Valley of north of Israel:

King of Egypt and Josiah at Megiddo

Of course in the final analysis, God’s intervention is required on the side of victory, and simultaneously with the Second Coming of Christ and with the termination of this old earth system. The good news is that the old will be replaced with a new heaven and a new earth, and God Himself will dwell among men in righteousness.
Most people chose to think contrary to Bible teachings on eschatology that Megiddo will never happen, or that they will be raptured away from it, and that out of their imaginations of itching ears teachings and unsound doctrine, so many things have to happen yet to be seen that there is no reason to be immently concerned. Those reasons will be eliminated shortly; right now, it it necessary for groundwork to consider that these excuses for world optimism is placing America in the comparable place as Israel when the “Peace, Peace, when there is no peace” Prophets and Pastors ruled the roost during the days of Jeremiah.
I. Of course, world peace when there is and will be no world peace is best understood in the total context of the book of Jeremiah; however for practical reasons the focus will center on Jeremiah 6:10-16–

Jeremiah 6 verses 10 thru 16_001

1. “To whom shall I speak, and give warning, that they may hear? behold, their ear is uncircumcised, and they cannot hearken: behold, the word of the LORD is unto them a reproach; they have no delight in it.” (Jeremiah 6:10)

There can be no real peace when any society operates counter to the Word of God, and do not delight themselves in the Bible.

2. “Therefore I am full of the fury of the LORD; I am weary with holding in: I will pour it out upon the children abroad, and upon the assembly of young men together: for even the husband with the wife shall be taken, the aged with him that is full of days.” (Jeremiah 6:11)

This judgment on Israel came to pass shortly as the armies of Babylon destroyed Jerusalem with those not slain taken captive to Babylon. Today for America and the world, judgment is coming shortly on the destruction of this old earth by fire. As you see Megiddo and the Second Coming, you can expect that END of this world. Now, that is Bible realism more than the false optimism of the Prophets and Pastors.

3. “And their houses shall be turned unto others, with their fields and wives together: for I will stretch out my hand upon the inhabitants of the land, saith the LORD.” (Jeremiah 6:12)

God has been patient with the sins of humanity, much more patient than we sould be; but inevitably there will come a day of judgment where He stretches out His almighty hand at Megiddo. As the Apostle Peter wrote:

4. “For from the least of them even unto the greatest of them every one is given to covetousness; and from the prophet even unto the priest every one dealeth falsely.” (Jeremiah 6:13)

Pretty bad shape in the eyes of good, both leaders and people were given over to covetousness, and even the prophet and the priest dealt falsely. Can that happen in America today with the present level of greed, deceit, and cover up, in the National Dens of thieves of even churches where CEOs run them and make millions. I don’t even think the Temples of God were in that much of a bad shape in Jeremiah.

5. “They {speaking of the prophets and priests in the verse before} have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace.” (Jeremiah 6:14)

Now we get the problem of false peace and optimism, it heals the hurt of the people of God only slightly; and furthermore, according to the Word of the LORD for that time in history and the time now, IT JUST IS NOT TRUE!

6. “Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore they shall fall among them that fall: at the time that I visit them they shall be cast down, saith the LORD.
(Jeremiah 6:15)

Are the evangelists on TV even ashamed as they practice and preach the false Gospel of Prosperity and the CEO’s of church dens in Baton Rogue and Houston even blush when they hear other Christians contend for the faith in real Bible; not so, they just spend their time in justification of what they are doing as anointed using no Bible basis, only their own “pride of life” as a rationalizations and their popularity. We already know the world and love of the world is popular and always will be until Megiddo.

7. “Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.” (Jeremiah 6:16)

As itching ears teachers teach you Christian fables you will notice they become quite on Bible and loud on their own opinions. Like Joel, in spite of editing his fathers sermons for TV for 17 years, substitutes new ways for the old paths, bad ways for the good ways; neither walking in the Bible himself or finding any rest for his own soul. False prophets, teachers, and pastors and priests, effectively come back to God and His Word, saying, ‘WE WILL NOT WALK THEREIN!”

Conclusion: Next blog message will entail dealing with the exuses and substitutes for Megiddo.  Megiddo is far away from the US and no doubt we will see the final battle of TV right up to the intervention of God where the whole earth including the US will be destroyed by fire according to the Apostle Peter:

“But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.”  (II Peter 3:10)

NOTE:  “day of the Lord” in the Bible is the final event of this old world as God, once patient and longsuffering for thousands of years, makes everything right:  He intervenes at Megiddo to give Christians the victory, He gathers believers to meet Him in the air as Christ Comes again, and terminates the old heavens and earth by fire before ushering in the new heaven and new earth.
