The too-awful reality of America’s soon coming nuclear holocaust is often deemed “too crazy”, even for the USA, to engage Russia in a hot war. Incredulity is our first response, as was mine when the revelation of the Spirit came 16+ years ago. It just couldn’t be, I thought, and spent seven years earnestly trying to disprove it before publicly speaking about it.
So how insane is it for the USA to imagine it can demonize and provoke the Russian Bear with impunity, even to the point of forced military submission? It turns out that scripture has some apt words to describe Ephraim/USA’s character as it rides its NATO White Horse as global bully in chief .. er ‘policeman’: drunkards, scoffers, silly dove, half-baked. In a word, crazy.
The crown it wears is that of King of the Free World, professionally whitewashed and fairly haloed with self-righteousness, wielding a treacherous bow. Pride indeed goes before the fall. It leads to all kinds of vain imaginings and vaunted pufferies as reason gives way to drunken folly. The clarity of the Word of Life shines a sobering light on the reality of Ephraim’s mentality just before his fall, first in 726 BC and now, in 2016 as it stares down the 2nd Bear.
Hos 7:1 “When I would have healed Israel, then the iniquity of Ephraim was uncovered,
And the wickedness of Samaria.
For they have committed fraud; a thief comes in; a band of robbers takes spoil outside.
Hos 7:2 They do not consider in their hearts that I remember all their wickedness;
Now their own deeds have surrounded them; they are before My face.
Hos 7:5 In the day of our king princes have made him sick, inflamed with wine;
He stretched out his hand with scoffers. [2 Ki 2:23]
Hos 7:7 They are all hot, like an oven, and have devoured their judges [e.g. Justice Scalia];
All their kings have fallen. None among them calls upon Me.
Hos 7:8 “Ephraim has mixed himself with the peoples; [melting pot of nations]
Ephraim is a cake unturned. [half-baked]
Hos 7:9 Aliens have devoured his strength, but he does not know it;
Yes, gray hairs are here and there on him, yet he does not know it.
Hos 7:11 “Ephraim also is like a silly dove, without sense—
They call to Egypt, they go to Assyria.
Hos 7:15 Though I disciplined and strengthened their arms, yet they devise evil against Me;
Hos 7:16 They return, but not to the Most High; they are like a treacherous bow.
Their princes shall fall by the sword for the cursings of their tongue.
This shall be their derision in the land of Egypt.
Isa 28:1 Woe to the crown of pride, to the drunkards of Ephraim,
Whose glorious beauty is a fading flower which is at the head of the verdant valleys,
To those who are overcome with wine!
Isa 28:2 Behold, the Lord has a mighty and strong one,
Like a tempest of hail and a destroying storm,
Like a flood of mighty waters overflowing,
Who will bring them [the Eagle] down to the earth with His hand.
Isa 28:3 The crown of pride, the drunkards of Ephraim, will be trampled underfoot
