Times of the Gentiles to be Fulfilled
-- Psalms 83 Speaks --
By His servant, Dan L Baxley
Update: Oct, 07, 2023 -- Israel is attacked on one of their most Holy Days -- The enemy, Hamas, and all collective enemies of the Chosen People of YaHWeH, should be-aware (Psalms 83, and Zechariah 12).
I wrote the following article a week before this latest outbreak, how timely. The Gentile nations are all those nations NOT Israel/Judah, this includes, especially, those surrounding the modern nation of Israel.
People that act like Beasts: Like the communist countries, such as Russia, these beasts have no regard for the life of others -- they murder anyone not themselves, anyone, and this includes children -- actually, they do also murder themselves, like wild dogs, hunting in packs and when not other meat is available they feed on each other -- Stalin is a good example of devouring his own people, Hitler too, of the more famous, and now the so called, Islamic radicals? Where do these animals find support if not among their own people? The irony, as these killers mask behind a religious cause, is that if these beasts were successful in eliminating all of the Jews in the world, they would then turn on each other. Absolutely true, they are at odds with themselves and if successful in their common hate, they would then turn on each other and devour their own body. What is the answer to all of this? Well, first, Israel has the right to protect itself, and the actions of Hamas and others may be the beginning of their own end -- as we read in, Zechariah, chapter 2 -- a threat from God Himself for anyone who would dare to harm His People. Without doubt, this attack on Israel, is insane, to be sure, but one has to wonder if the evil behind all of this, thought that by their actions, others, like themselves, would join in on the attack -- this is not happening, at least not at this time, and they are left out to face the wrath of the Israeli military (IDF) response.
The following article had been prepared, looking into the instruction from our Savior about the The Times of Gentiles, and how that Time must be played out before His return -- His return to shut the Beast and False religion, the daughter of Babylon down. What is it that makes a people, or even a city, a daughter of Babylon? It would be, a united hate for the people of the Living God. Babylon has always sought to replace the The Creator God of Abraham. Even in the Christian Church organizations, they all call on a false god, even one that comes out of Babylon, The Zeus, which is how many in the world pronounce the fake name, Geezus, or Jesus. This Greek god, is related to, or renamed from the Babylonian god, Marduk, a god that looks very similar to the images imagined by the Christians as their savior -- for more info about this little tid-bit go to this link -- All Hail Zeus. For now, I hope you find the following article a benefit.
Times of the Gentiles
This title is a popular quote, or it used to be. The Hebrew Roots, and Finding your Jewish Root people, within the Christian Communities, would like to ignore this famous saying, a saying from the lips of our Savior, YaHshua. But, as you will see, there is more to this saying than an example of Gentiles being called to our Lord YaHshua, above and over the people of Israel. So, let's have a look --
(Luke 21:23-24) But woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck, in those days! for there shall be great distress in the land, and wrath upon this people. And they (Judah - YaHudah) shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled. KJV
The truth in these words can be found in the Historical accounts, but is that the end of it, are these words finished, fulfilled? One of the most graphic accounts about what happened to the Jewish people, withing that generation of people who witnessed the crucifixion, even, some having participated in the killing of the Messiah, YaHshua (Renamed by the Gentiles -- to call on another -- John 5:43) can be found in the writings of Josephus, a Jewish commander who put in writing the events that seemingly, could be called a fulfillment of these words -- 67-70 AD, the Jewish people came under seige, from the Roman occupation, centering around Jerusalem. The Temple was eventually burned and brought down to the ground. Later, some 70 years later, 140 AD, the city itself was leveled. Modern Jerusalem is built on top of the ruins. The actual streets that our Lord YaHshua walked, are anywhere from 25 to 75 feet below modern Jerusalem. As for the Temple Mount? The Scholars are still arguing over where the Temple was located. All of this appears to be the complete fulfillment of those words our Savior spoke, in that first century -- except -- when we read the next verse, and consider the context of these prophetic words.
Luke 21:25-26 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.
In all of the historical reports, we do not find any mention about the oceans or sea waves roaring? Nor is there any mention about mankind suffering heart failure, being so frightened by what they are witnessing. And what are they witnessing? Things which are coming on the Earth -- For the powers of Heaven shall be shaken -- it we appear as though the Earth is coming to its end, just as the prophets of science has been telling mankind for centuries. True, for anyone interested or listening. The scientific community has been telling mankind that their days are numbered, that one day the Sun will burn out, or that it is only a matter of time before Earth is once again hit by an Extinction Asteroid -- that out demise is inevitable. What these false prophets of science have missed is the timing of these events -- saying they are millions of year, even billions of years into the future. There are other things, as well, for example; over population, weather changes, the depletion of food, worldwide famine, wars, nuclear war -- on and on it goes, with the inevitable extinction of mankind. What this world needs now, is love sweet love, or so goes the song, but that is only partly true -- what the world needs now and forever, is a Savior. We need someone with the power to stop and restore everything. This is what our Savior YaHshua, promises to do, but first, there has to be a Great Reset -- NO, no and no, first there will come a Great Shaking.
The Great Reset that the elite seek, promote a certain desire, as expressed in the 2023 WEF (Word Economic Forum) has so clearly revealed -- using AI to control societies and the world -- using AI for controlling all of mankind with the dream of controlling the World by technological advances, once only dreamed about in the genre of SiFi, which will prove to be nothing more than the failure of mankind to save themselves, even with the advances in the technologies, human seem to be growing more and more ignorant -- mankind saving mankind is a false hope. The Great Reset, thought to have begun with the COVID Pandemic, or, at least hoped for by some, is the hope of those attempting to create a One World Order -- yes, yes, we have all heard about this as some kind of phoney conspiracy theory, that only fools and idiots would listen to -- But Wait! Let's read what someone, someone who is responsible for the founding of the WEF, had to say at this 2023 meeting of the Elite class of world controllers, or wana-be controllers --
Klaus Schwab quoted as having said, at the WEF gathering -- "Who masters technologies, in some way, will be ze masters of the world." -- O course He said many other things, but it all came down to telling all of those who believe themselves to be the cream of human intelligence that they must take advantage of the technologies available to control everything -- you know, to be the Masters of the World. Schwab also said : 'A few years ago, we considered some technologies a science fiction that was difficult to implement, but today it has become a reality that we live through artificial intelligence, new space technology, and industrial biology, which heralds a major change coming during the next 10 years, and requires governments to be ambitious in their decisions.”

There is a lot of coverage about that meeting of the world of movers and shakers. But, that is the World. What we are concerned with, in this article, is the Times of the Gentiles -- the whole world is full of Gentiles, which is to say, "non-Israelis". The Jewish people are a representative of all Israel, that is, around the world. True to the words our Savior spoke, the Jewish people have been dispersed, removed from their home land and spread around from country to country, just as those prophetic words state would happen. Now, notice, the Times of the Gentiles is times around Jerusalem. It is Jerusalem that is to be trodden under foot by the Gentile until a certain number is reached -- when the Gentiles controlling Jerusalem is run out.
Back in 70 Ad the Temple was completely destroyed, burned, and torn apart, stone by stone. Those who survived this Gentile assault, were enslaved, and carted off into other parts of the Roman Empire. Later, around 140 AD, the city Jerusalem was destroyed, and everyone take or driven out of the land. If any Jews or Israelis were left it would have been too few to count. Over the centuries there has always been a few, some coming and going, but it was not until WWII, in the 40s, that a movement among the Jewish people to take seriously, a return to their descendants homeland, and that, thanks to Germany, who, under the banner of World Dominance (Another term for a Great Reset), attempted to rid the world of all Judah/Israelite. Apparently, those spearheading this eradication of the Jew, had never read the Hebrew Bible, or if they had, they did not believe it.
There is a Biblical curse, from YaHWeH Himself, placed upon anyone who would seek to destroy, or to damage, or treat His chosen ones poorly.
ZechariYaH 12:9 - It will happen in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem (YaHshalayim).
And when will this be? This particular time?
Zec 12:10 I will pour on the house of David, and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem (YaHshalayim), the spirit of grace and of supplication; and they will look to me whom they have pierced; and they shall mourn for him, as one mourns for his only son, and will grieve bitterly for him, as one grieves for his firstborn.
At His, our SAVIOR'S return, to not only save us, but Judah/Israel/Jerusalem as well.
IsaYaH 54:15 - If anyone does attack you, it will not be my doing; whoever attacks you will surrender to you.
Isa 54:16-17 - See, it is I who created the blacksmith who fans the coals into flame and forges a weapon fit for its work. And it is I who have created the destroyer to work havoc; no weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of YaHUaH, and this is their vindication (righteousness) from Me," declares YHWH (YaHUaH).
Recognizing the Curse, on those who come against His People
Psa 83:1 God, don't keep silent. Don't keep silent, and don't be still, God.
Psa 83:2 For, behold, your enemies are stirred up. Those who hate you have lifted up their heads.
Psa 83:3 They conspire with cunning against your people. They plot against your cherished ones.
Psa 83:4 "Come," they say, "and let's destroy them as a nation, that the name of Israel may be remembered no more."
And who is it, in particular, this curse is directed? All or anyone, of course, but specifically, those who should hear this warning?
Psa 83:5 For they have conspired together with one mind. They form an alliance against you.
Psa 83:6 The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites; Moab, and the Hagrites;
Psa 83:7 Gebal, Ammon, and Amalek; Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre;
Psa 83:8 Assyria also is joined with them. They have helped the children of Lot. Selah.
Psa 83:9 Do to them as you did to Midian, as to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the river Kishon;
Psa 83:10 who perished at Endor, who became as dung for the earth.
Psa 83:11 Make their nobles like Oreb and Zeeb; yes, all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna;
Psa 83:12 who said, "Let us take possession of God's pasture lands."
For some, these curses have come to pass, and some of these no longer exist. But, this curse remains, and sits on top of the heads of those who are still around and visible to the other nations. Those, such as the Ishmaelites, present day Arab people, and descendants of other peoples mentioned, should hear this, and see who it is that YaHWeH, the God of Abraham and of Moses, is calling "His people". Seeking to destroy Judah/Israel, is to seek the destruction of your own people -- and so it is written.
What is the ultimate Purpose of their Destruction?
First: Retribution for seeking to destroy His People, not just Israel, but those whom He has called to His Holy Name. Second: To make people the world over, acknowledge Him, and that by His Name and no other, to see just who it is that is ultimate control -- "... that they may know that you alone, whose Name Is YHWH -- The Most High over all the Earth"
The Prophetic word it the ultimate proof that He is who He says He is --
Psa 83:13 My God, make them like tumbleweed; like chaff before the wind.
Psa 83:14 As the fire that burns the forest, as the flame that sets the mountains on fire,
Psa 83:15 so pursue them with your tempest, and terrify them with your storm.
Psa 83:16 Fill their faces with confusion, that they may seek your name, YaHWeH.
Psa 83:17 Let them be disappointed and dismayed forever. Yes, let them be confounded and perish;
Psa 83:18 that they may know that you alone, whose name is YaHWeH, are the Most High over all the earth.
