The Last–Day Exodus – the Journey to the Promised Land
This is one of the greatest highlights of the eventful last days, perhaps second only to the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. This is also one of the covenants confirmed, the majestic display of the awesome wonders of our powerful God. Finally, He comes to redeem His people. Blessed are those who hoped, persevered and waited for this time. They will be greatly rewarded to receive healing, power, and to witness this glory from God.
Those who were not taken away to the Desert of Nations should wait for this time of last days Exodus for deliverance from God but they will suffer first the Great Tribulation just as the Hebrews suffered under the Pharaoh in the times of Moses, another covenant confirmed, under the modern day Pharaoh, the Antichrist. He will make war against all Christians, those who were not taken to the Desert of Nations or Greenland (To those who are following my topics should be already familiar about the flow of events about the prophecies. Take time to read past topics of the Bible Studies or read the book, "The Omega Days" for details and better chronology).
They will not be absolutely hopeless. As long as they have breath, they shall have hope even though they suffer in the hands of the Antichrist.
Read also Rev 7:14. Those who suffered at the hands of the Antichrist will yearn for the coming of their Saviour just like when the Hebrews in Egypt cried out to God for help to ease their sufferings at the hands of the cruel pharaoh. The story will be re-enacted, and Moses himself will set free the captives of the modern–day Pharaoh.
About the start of the Day of the Lord, at the end of 1,260 days which is decreed as suffering of the Christians, the remnants of the chosen people of God shall be called out in an extraordinary way. At the close of the tribulation and series of plagues, time has come for the Great Exodus, which I call the Second Rapture.
Also before the Second Rapture, the Antichrist will not let the captives free such as this prophecy in the book of Isaiah, which tells of a scenario similar to the times of Moses. Read one of those times that the ancient Pharaoh refused to let the Israelites leave Egypt even after suffering successive plagues:
In the last days, the modern Pharaoh, the Antichrist will do the same to confirm the covenant not letting his captives, the Christians to leave the U.S.A., the modern Egypt to go home to the original Promised Land, in Jerusalem.
“Is this the man [Antichrist] who shook the earth and made kingdoms tremble, the man who made the world a desert, who overthrew its cities and would not let his captives go home?” (Isa 14:16–17).
So immediately after the three and one–half years or forty–two months or 1,260 days decreed for the Antichrist to rule over the chosen, the Lord Jesus will gather His elect from across the globe. The Antichrist can not do anything to prevent this from happening.
This includes now not only the Israelites but all people that are called by the name of God, the Christ-ians. They shall be all gathered from everywhere. Everyone even the blind, lame, and pregnant mothers will be included (Jer 31:8); none shall be left behind (Ezek 39:28). Now read this very encouraging word of the Lord:
Read also Ezek 20:41-43. Understand that the verse above will occur during theday of clouds and darkness, meaning this particular rapture will happen during the Day of the Lord and not before the tribulation period. Global darkness is one of the signs of the Lord’s Second Coming (Amos 5:18; Zeph 1:15; Matt 24:29).
And from the Lord Jesus Himself, I tell you, on that night two people will be in one bed; one will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding grain together; one will be taken and the other left (Luke 17:34–35).
Then in verse 37 His apostles asked Him to where they will be taken.
The answer of Jesus was not straightforward but only a clue. This will be explained later in the next topic. As Jesus also said, if those days had not been cut short, no one will survive (Matt 24:22).
Following the Way to the Promised Land
This concerns people who had experienced the tribulation and particularly those who had patience to wait and had called out to God for deliverance. The author believes that the term “way” is literal because the elect for sure had already known the spiritual way, the way of salvation, which is Jesus, who is the way to the Father (John 14:6). After having just suffered the tribulation, the teachers will lead them first out from the land of captivity and affliction toward the Promised Land following the way that God will show them. Read the Old Testament pattern in Ex 13:21–24.
Contrary to the First Rapture, those who will be taken off by the Second Rapture will not be instantaneous. Instead, they will be commanded to walk and follow a certain “way.” Guides and teachers will assist the chosen because by that time, clouds and darkness will begin to cover the earth. They will be called out to walk in the literal “way.” There shall be teachers who shall guide them – who are they? It says they were hidden before. I believe they are the prophets themselves, great people of the Bible assisting the elect in the last–day Exodus. Amen! Others will just hear a voice calling them to walk in the “way” as Jesus Himself put it,“Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left.” (Matt 24:40). The rest will not be able to hear the voice from heaven. It will come all of a sudden, and many will be caught unprepared. Just like in the days of Moses, they will set up camps along the way as they march towards Israel.
Then just like the days of old, darkness will come (Amos 5:18). It will also be like in the days of Moses – darkness and light will separate the sinners from the chosen (Ex 14:20), but for the elect, there will be light to guide them along the way toward home in the Promised Land.
The “ways" and "paths" are the routes of the Great Exodus toward the Promised Land, the original land flowing with milk and honey, the land of Canaan promised to Abraham. Wherever the remnants are, God will provide a safe and smooth way towards Jerusalem. Read Isa 11:16:
Now the routes are much longer, covering the entire globe wherever there are Christians. Darkness will be over the whole earth, and fire from God begins to destroy the elements and the enemies of God.
(2 Peter 3:7).
And the chosen will be secured and protected from harm. Now read this:
Is it not wonderful that those who have endured the tribulation and had waited for God’s deliverance will become imperishable? The earth will then be burning as the Lord is destroying it with fire, but the chosen shall not be affected by the flames and heat. If this is like the old Exodus, then there should be a dividing of the sea. Definitely yes and in a much bigger sea, deeper and with mightier power from God! The sea should still be between Egypt and the Promised Land. Read these prophecies and note the emphasis:
Raising the staff over the waters is referring to Moses striking the Red Sea for it to be divided. Read in Ex 14:21-22:
Also in the passages below. Take note that all the references to Isaiah's writings are all prophecies that have not happened yet.
I will bring them back from Egypt and gather them from Assyria. I will bring them to Gilead and Lebanon, and there will not be room enough for them. They will pass through the sea of trouble; the surging sea will be subdued and all the depths of the Nile will dry up. Assyria’s pride will be brought down and Egypt’s scepter will pass away (Zech 10:10–12).
"As in the days when you came out of Egypt, I will show them my wonders" (Mic 7:15).
The last passage too by Micah has not happened yet promising to do the same wonders that God did to Israel when they came out of Egypt.
The Route of Exodus
Now again, Egypt is not the ancient Egypt anymore but the USA. Read the "Real Roots of America" for details. The Nile is a great river in the mainland. The gulf of the Egyptian sea cannot be the original Red Sea anymore. Following the path toward Jerusalem is a thousand miles across the Atlantic Ocean, Europe even crossing the Euphrates River, and down to the south, the Land of Canaan, and finally Jerusalem. The author believes that the gulf of the Egyptian Sea is no other than the Atlantic Ocean. It is also the sea of trouble. It will be parted for the chosen from the west to walk through it on dry ground.
The journey is thousands of miles to the destination – arduous and burdensome. But here’s God’s answer:
This prophecy is intended for that magnificent and wonderful event which will not happen again. Praise the Lord! By this time, all the elect will recall the days of old, the days of Moses. A covenant confirmed!
Now the verse above is a prophecy which is still to happen. Salvation of the chosen will come in the same manner as the Lord God Almighty did in Egypt, now in much bigger scale and magnitude spanning continents culminating in Jerusalem.
The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD. And everyone who calls on the name of the LORD will be saved; for on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there will be deliverance, as the LORD has said, among the survivors whom the LORD calls (Joel 2: 31–32).
God has a purpose why He will gather His people to Jerusalem. By then, the enemies of the Lord Jesus Christ, the army of the Antichrist, will pursue those who have already arrived in Jerusalem via the Exodus. He will attempt to destroy them just like what the ancient Pharaoh did in the the times of Moses when he and his army chased the Hebrews through the divided Red Sea. There in Jerusalem, Jesus Christ our Saviour will again display His awesome power against His enemies in full view of all nations. This will be discussed in the next topic, "The Battle of Armageddon."
Keep track of the times. Glory be to God! He is coming soon!
