(Part 2) 

(If you haven't read part 1 Jesus is a conspiracy theist  you aren't going to really get part 2!)

     I keep getting confused between the church and the divided nations period,  because the similarities are so striking.  Why do you suppose?  My tin-foil-wearing-hat--friend, learn this one thing and learn it over and over, man does not change, and neither does GOD, only the clock changes, and the pages of a calendar.  You know what they say, a man who doesn’t learn from the past is likely to repeat it.  We all but wiped out learning the vibrant rich  historicity of GOD’s people in the church today. It's all about Jesus in the New Testament, Paul as his prolific writer, as if Jesus really wasn't all that involved in the Old Testament days.  The average Christian didn’t even know what I just explained about their civil war and their corrupt kingdoms, which GOD allowed/caused, because they wouldn’t keep contemporary “idols” worldly paganism out of the Temple and daily burnt sacrifices.  They mixed in the white flour with the wheat flour, and all they got was indivisible processed flour which could be blown away by a good stiff breeze.  Sound familiar?  (Another blog )
I’ve seen many so-called self-proclaiming prophets with their doomsday scenario warning, preaching and hollering in the streets, prepare to meet your maker, because the end is at hand, and they mean the second hand on the clock, not the hour hand.  I am thinking GOD is at the hour hand, and they are spinning by Him so fast, they don’t get it.  One Messianic rabbi (I don't ever mention names) is  out there selling his wares, making the den of robbers (Luke 19:46,  Matthew 21:13, Mark 11:17)  look a small corner market.  He even compared some of Israel’s kings, good and bad to ours, (Presidents) and inferred that GOD was using our leaders in the same roles, like President Trump is portraying King Jehu.  (If you don’t know King Jehu, maybe the stunning similarity between Bill and  Hillary Clinton as a type of Ahab and Jezebel might help.)  Does that  make more sense?  I know the striking similarity is kind of peculiar.  Here is what I learned and why that assumption is wrong. He is wrong to compare events in the natural then with events in the natural here.  That borders on replacement theology, and you are going to have to research that one on your own.
I’m not saying history doesn’t repeat itself, but GOD is specific about one life, one death, and then judgment. There’s no reincarnation, no one is returning to attempt a re-do at what failed 3,000 years ago, or so. However, if you apply the story and historicity of the things that happened in the natural then, you can pretty much see a spiritual re-do in the church. This isn’t replacement theology, it’s called a type, typology, foreshadowing. 
Here is a picture perfect portrait. The Northern Kingdom split and took  the ten tribes with them, and in order to keep their people from venturing back to Solomon’s Temple and risk losing their obedience and devotion, they created their own capitol city in Samaria.  Jeroboam even re-wrote the burnt offering’s procedure manual and brought in anyone who wanted the job of leading the new “religion” of the Jews, or so what they called it.  This was the new Judaism, and they got to make up the rules, bring in whatever pagan rituals they wanted, like sacrificing their children in the fire to Molech, temple prostitutes and orgies at church.  Now, who wouldn’t love a free for all every week when they gathered, getting naked and having some “innocent” fun?”

Well, in AD 333, Emperor Constantine allegedly became a Christian, because it suited his political aspirations, and he decided to make/force his entire army and subjects declared Christians.  There were forced baptisms, or death. New pagan rituals were brought in, and their ‘gods,’ were incorporated by giving them “Biblical” role models and names.  That way the people could ease into their new religion, and they wouldn’t have to change too much. The people wouldn’t revolt and if like man’s nature always proves, absolute power corrupts absolutely.  Eventually, this new anti-semitic religion, which now had a new name, could fade out slowly all things Judean.  They even forced some of Jewish people who were descendants of the original 12 tribes who were carted off to Rome as slaves in AD 70,  to change their names because they were too “Jewish” sounding.  So Issak, became Saako, or Sacco, and Simon, became DeSimone, nice Italian names with that nice Italian flavor and sound, and my grandfather's parents' name.  They even made their own capitol city, a new one, not Jerusalem, naw, they like the seven hills of Rome better, not to mention that all the best emperors/politicians  flocked there.  (I’m thinking DC and RCC is that what you are thinking?) Eventually this “Christian” church became so powerful; it was impossible to distinguish the church from the government.  In fact, the church ran the government and the neighboring kings and queens, lest they be sent to hell by the pontifex at the time, because whatever he said, goes.  If the pope is sending you to hell, off to purgatory you go, because he had a heart, and decided there should be a truck stop on the way to hell, so those who screwed up their lives, like EVERYONE does, they could go wait there and hope that their relatives love them enough for the church to gas up their trucks and send them to north instead of south. 
Eventually, there was a revolt, and a new “sect” of people came out of there and they wanted to return to the basics, only so much time had gone by, like a millennia, they didn’t even know the basics anymore.  Anti-Semitism was alive and well,  so, they did the best they could, but remained married to the state for safety.  This group couldn’t stop their in-fighting either, so they split up into about 50 different states, I mean denominations.  Are we seeing a parallel here, government working with religion and religion controlling government?
If you study that period of the divided nations and the church age, it’s almost if they are twin sisters.  Even some of the Southern Kings, were reformers, for example, John Hess could play the role of King Hezekiah, an early reformer, and Martin Luther would do fabulously as Josiah, because he found the missing Law/Bible verses that brought grace back into the fold. 

So, if the church age is similar to the age of the divided kingdoms, what could possibly come next?  Ah, the rapture because things are getting so bad here, the worse they get, the closer we are to the rapture,  Ehhhhh!  Wrong. 

You see, right before final judgment of a people, GOD brings  peace and prosperity. GOD blesses the nations before He lets them be conquered. He lets them have their cake and eat it too. I don’t know why, maybe He was trying to woo them back, or maybe He knew the prosperity would lull the sheeple into a deep sleep, and cause a pruning or pulling out the serious searchers from the hobbyists who gather just that once a week, and do their daily 15 minute Bible devotion as if they were getting their ticket to heaven punched. There are hints in Scripture that this is exactly what GOD is doing. It's not the end that is coming, it's the party before the end.

(Matthew 24:38 For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark,)

     There is a time and event/era in the Bible that all the scholars have slipped over, missed it's importance in these latter days of the church age.  They missed, a prophecy, a foreshadowing, a natural event that happened in the Old Testament but hasn’t happened in the spiritual yet, in a global fashion.  What’s that? Well, GOD had the northern kingdom wiped out by the Assyrians, a dreaded fierce people and it never rose, again, Could this be a foreshadowing of the Global elitist, the pedophiles taking down the Vatican with them?
The southern kingdom of Judah got a few more chances to get it right, because they did have some righteous kings.  Eventually, though, they were dragged off to Babylon, about 600 miles away, or maybe an ocean’s worth.  Geological humor there.  I’m talking the Mediterranean, NOT the Atlantic.  GOD kept warning Judah of a 70 year grounding, time out, captivity, being sent to a foreign land, being slaughtered and suffering if they chose their own way, and not His prescribed religious orders. Those prophets GOD sent to Judah were Isaiah, Jeremiah, Zephaniah, Habakkuk, Joel, Micah, and Ezekiel.    GOD told the prophets what was around the bend.   The problem with those prophets is they got vision from GOD of the future, but no time-line.  So, for example, Micah was about 150 years premature with his predictions and consequences, so no one paid attention to him, I mean after all, decades went by, and he was a self-proclaiming party-pooper prophets.  They labeled him as a false prophet and wrote him off.  Habakkuk even gave some details of the invasion by Babylon,
Habakkuk’s ‘prediction/conspiracy-theory prophecies were about five years prior to the first invasion where Nebuchadnezzar lay siege around Jerusalem.  A way to conquer a nation is to starve them, to weaken them. Make them sick, make food and toilet paper impossible to get. The fear alone would drive many to end it all, because the broken ones could find no hope.  Nebuchadnezzar  cut off all in going and out going flights, highway, roads, so no one would enter or leave.  He left an army of “protestors” outside the walls of the city.  If anyone attempted to leave, they were beaten and killed.  The Babylonians were not nice people. They were savages. (Read Habakkuk 1)  

Habakkuk got that vision and little head’s up FIVE years or more before it became a sad reality.  It was if he had a Q board to tell him what to expect, in details.  The Person running the board was the original Bread from Heaven.   Do you know just how long waiting FIVE years is when you are waiting for what GOD told you, assured you, and showed you He was going to do, especially when it meant a drastic life-changing event or death of a nation/persons?   I do.  It’s freaking agony. 
Okay, so the weakened Juhahites and left-over remnant of the other eleven tribes were dragged off to Babylon to serve and live with  the Babylonians.  They were told to blend in.  They were instructed to live peaceably among the pagan nation, not rebelling, but building homes, having families, growing food, oh, and “evangelize” a little about the GOD of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob when the occasion arose.  Seventy years is a long time for a people to assimilate into a very WEALTHY and prosperous nation.  Eventually, they fit right in, like it was home sweet home, and the Babylonians were there friends and neighbors.  Sure, they missed the old country, the old days, but the money was flowing, the people were growing, and easy street became a very friendly neighborhood. (Do you see the mega-church similarities?) They could grow and become a huge conglomerate church, I mean people, creating prosperous business for themselves, enjoying the good life. That was until GOD showed Daniel that part in Jeremiah’s writing that said the time out was limited to seventy years.
So much for that prosperity, they were going to have to pack up their belongings, go back to their ghost town Jerusalem and rebuild from the ground up.  GOD didn’t’ call all of them. He only called about 42,000 plus their pets, flocks and goods and staff, I mean servants.   He even had the good King Darius help fund the venture and with his blessing, too (Tax exempt status).  King Darius liked the Israelite’s GOD, he liked everyone’s gods.  After all there are many ways to The Holy City, right? Not one specific route or mode of travel is required by GOD, shoot, there’s tons of paths along the highway and byways of church Constitutions.
GOD moved in the hearts of a select remnant to go back and start over from the basics, the purity of true worship, not clouded with Babylonian-style cultural additives.  It was a hard road, the received lots of persecution from the people who stayed behind all those seventy-years and mixed in with the pagans Assyria left there from a hundred years ago.  The more persecution they suffered, the harder they worked, the more important became the work for GOD, and no non-Jew or even Jew-mix was going to take part in rebuilding GOD’s Temple.  No marketing techniques needed, they didn’t’ need to incorporate, because they were small group, self-governing, determined to try to finally do it right before GOD.   They finally finished the Temple and the city walls in record time.  The Temple, at the time was small, but pure. They realized that  it’s not about brick and mortar, campuses and cathedrals, it’s about worship, pure and  simple and straight from the heart. 
Sadly, for them who remembered the good ole’ days, and the glory and splendor of Solomon’s Temple, Zerubbabel’s temple was pale in comparison. They made some necessary changes by creating the scribes/media among the priestly families.  Ezra wrote their long journey from David’s days to the exile  Eventually, as man always does, it took only about a couple hundred years for them to become corrupt, again, giving into the reigning regimes persecution and compromising the Scriptures to save their own butts.  A revolt by the Maccabees, miraculously restored the Temple worship after a tyrant defiled it.  They still couldn’t get that loving GOD and each other right, so GOD was going to have to send His Son down there to take over and straighten those confused flawed, but lovable chosen nation of GOD.  
I’m wondering if you are getting any of the hints here.  I did what Q did, I threw a few hints and clues along the way, so that if you really wanted to know where GOD is, what He’s doing and who He’s calling to rebuild his spiritual  “temple,”  you will have to do some digging and researching to seek after His own heart.  If you like it in Babylon, because it’s prosperous and comfortable, by all means, stay if you want, because if you prefer Babylon, it means GOD hasn’t moved on your spirit to leave Babylonian Contemporary culture where the church is hard to distinguish between the world and the government.  That’s really bad if the western church can be compared by GOD to the DC Swamp and it’s crooked politicians.  Let me tell you, that is exactly how GOD see the bulk of the prosperous RICH church (Revelation 3).  
I don’t expect to make any friends with this blog post, in fact, like our wonderful POTUS,  Donald Trump, I’m an outsider, I can’t be bought, I can’t be swayed to do it the way we’ve always done it, and for sure, I’m not the most genteel of gentiles.  Shoot, I’m not even a gentile any longer! I don’t do things the way the world and the church do things, I operate out of my small corner of the world with my sling and my stones.  (Allen means stones)   I’m out here on this very lonely roadway in the wilderness heading back to “Jerusalem” to rebuild, to start over, and I’m waiting for GOD to send some companions and co-workers, because heaven knows, there’s NO way I will get this right if He put me in charge, unlike Ezra, I’m a complete screw-up! 

      Don’t tell me I have to go to church to be a good politician, I mean Christian and do it like everyone else has always done it before, because even if I’m on this wilderness road all alone for the rest of my days, there is no way in Hell, I’m going back to Babylon!  I have my exile family, my QPatrtots and we are a family.  We aren’t a church; we are revolutionaries, we are patriots, we are regular people who thank GOD every day we are Americans,  and we are trying to restore our grand Republic.  The QAnon connection is ALSO Biblical, and I found it.  You see, the “handwriting is on the wall!”   (See Daniel 5)
   Side note, I see signs of GOD everywhere because I look for Him everywhere and He gladly obliges.  GOD loves numbers, and He speaks to me through numbers and happenstance.  Note the 19 at the bottom of this page.  Nineteen in Hebrew stands for Divine Judgment, and the 19th letter in Hebrew is Qof, what we would call Q
 in our alphabet!  Judgment is coming, but the some of the church is clueless as to who it is going to be.
