Concerning the Jews in the land of Israel, the Pope and the apostate Roman Catholic Organization that calls itself a church, is not even aware that Ezekiel Chapter 36 vs16-27 is taking place right before our very eyes.
Moreover the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,
Son of man, when the house of Israel dwelt in their own land, they defiled it by their own way and by their doings; their way was before me as the uncleaness of a removed woman.
Wherefore I poured my fury upon them for the blood that they had shed upon the land, and for their idols wherewith they had polluted it:
And I scattered them among the heathen, and they were dispersed through the countries; according to their way and according to their doings I judged them.
And when they entered unto the heathen, wither they went, they profaned my holy name, when they said to them, These are the people of the Lord, and are gone forth out of his land.
But I had pity for my holy name, which the house of Israel had profaned among the heathen, wither they went.
Therefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord God; I DO NOT THIS FOR YOUR SAKES, O HOUSE OF ISRAEL, BUT FOR MINE HOLY NAME'S SAKE, WHICH YE HAVE PROFANED AMONG THE HEATHEN, WHITHER YE WENT.
AND I WILL SANCTIFY MY GREAT NAME, which was profaned among the heathen in the midst of them; AND THE HEATHEN SHALL KNOW THAT I AM THE LORD, SAITH THE LORD GOD, WHEN I SHALL BE SANCTIFIED IN YOU BEFORE THEIR EYES.
For I will take you from among the heathen,and gather you out of all countries and will bring you into your own land.
Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean, from your filthiness, and from your idols, will I cleanse you.
And a new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.
And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.
AND YE SHALL DWELL IN THE LAND THAT I GAVE TO YOUR FATHERS; AND YE SHALL BE MY PEOPLE, AND I WILL BE YOUR GOD. Read More
