Prophecy of Zephaniah
The destruction of the twin towers was prophesied by Zephaniah, a prophet who lived in the reign (640–609 B.C.) of King Josiah of Judah. The prophet Zephaniah was the great grandson of King Hezekiah.
The original Hebrew word translated "hollow
place" is "maktesh", which means a mortar, like
mortar and pestle, it also means the hollow socket where a tooth is
inserted into the bone. The prophet used this word instead of city
or house because many people lived and worked in these two buildings, but
the twin towers could not be considered a city. He did not use the
word "towers" because people did not live in towers.
The original word translated "lees" is the Hebrew word "shemer", which means dregs, sediment, or something that settles down, so we think the right translation is "punish the men that are settled on their settlements." Therefore, God is telling us that the destruction of the twin towers occurs at the time that God punishes men that live in settlements and that say JHWH does no good or evil.
Sadly so, many of the Jewish residents in Israel have this line of thought due to their suffering during the holocaust. They do not pray to JHWH for deliverance in their time of trouble. They rely more and more on the United States for help.
This is happening right before our eyes. Many of the settlements have been left for Arabs to enjoy: Hebron, Bethlehem, and many more.
The great day of the Lord is near. This event is also prophesied in the book of Revelation. See Wrath of God. It is preceded by the return of the Messiah.
Therefore the destruction of the twin towers, sad as it may be, is a sign that the rapture is at the doors.
We Are Losing our Civil Liberties
People are now willing to give up their rights for more security. In a poll taken by a major news service several days after the September 11, 2001 attack on the World Trade Center, over 2/3 of the voters expressed this view.
The U.S. has now taken the center stage in rallying other nations against terrorism.
During a meeting in Paris on September 20, 2001- they said that their countries would support any U.S. military action they considered a justifiable reply to the attack on the twin towers. Their reunion is part of a diplomatic tour by Blair intended to garner support for an international coalition in favor of the U.S. anti-terrorism stance.
Vladimir V. Putin, President of Russia, agreed to help the United States in the fight against terrorism by sharing intelligence information and allowing the United States to use Central Asian airfields.
Vincente Fox, President of Mexico, will help the United States in its crusade against terrorism by purveying oil, stopping the flow of terrorists' money and preventing them from crossing the U.S.-Mexican border.
In its war on terrorism, the United States will use the United Nations as the world legal body.
The United Nations Security Council last Friday September 28, 2001 voted unanimously 15-0 approving a U.S.-sponsored resolution that would freeze the financial assets of suspected terrorists. The resolution requires all countries to deny "safe haven" to anyone financing or committing a terrorist act. This will expand the power of the United Nations to fight terrorism.
The measure to fight terrorism was introduced Thursday September 19, 2001 by U.S. Ambassador John Negroponte.
It will be prohibited for any country to furnish assistance to anyone involved in terrorist acts. Bin Laden's supporters will have all their assets frozen. Countries must fully cooperate with one another in investigating terrorist acts, including helping member states in acquiring evidence.
Diplomats said that in accepting the legally binding Security Council resolution, all countries are now required to immediately implement them. This effectively supersedes other anti-terrorism treaties that many countries have ratified.
To maintain international peace and security, the United Nations has become the new world policeman, enacting laws that supersede national laws.
National sovereignty is become a thing of the past, leading us into a one world government as the bible prophesied.
