“Yet you say, ‘In what way have You loved us?’
Was not Esau Jacob’s brother?”
Says the Lord.
“Yet Jacob I have loved;
3 But Esau I have hated,
And laid waste his mountains and his heritage
For the jackals of the wilderness.”
4 Even though Edom has said,
“We have been impoverished,
But we will return and build the desolate places,”
Thus says the Lord of hosts:
“They may build, but I will throw down;
They shall be called the Territory of Wickedness,
And the people against whom the Lord will have indignation forever.
5 Your eyes shall see,
And you shall say,
‘The Lord is magnified beyond the border of Israel.’
The first harvest is the whole house of Jacob. The second harvest is the whole house of Esau. "YOUR EYES SHALL SEE!!" Every Jew who has ever read this is included. They ALL will see the house of Esau in the winepress. Trodden by none other than Jesus alone, a Jew.
If my interpretations of the prophets are correct, God will bring on Israel a locust plague 3 or 4 years running. During that time, after all the food runs out and Israel faces an existential crisis, the religious leaders of Israel will announce that the population should come to Jerusalem to pray for Israel, to seek God's mercy and an end to the plague. Just after that, God will send fire throughout the land of Israel, burning every house, animal, and person into ashes who did not make the trip to Jerusalem. Isaiah refers to these people as "the survivors."
Isaiah 1:9 Unless the Lord of hosts Had left us a few survivors, We would be like Sodom, We would be like Gomorrah.
Isaiah 4:2 In that day the Branch of the Lord will be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the earth will be the pride and the adornment of the survivors of Israel.
Isaiah 37:32 For out of Jerusalem will go forth a remnant and out of Mount Zion survivors. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.”’
And Joel also calls them survivors.
Joel 2:32 “And it will come about that whoever calls on the name of the Lord Will be delivered; For on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem There will be those who escape, As the Lord has said, Even among the survivors whom the Lord calls.
The survivors are those who decide to obey the call and come to Jerusalem to pray for the nation. In this context, "to call on the name of the Lord" is to travel to Jerusalem for a very large prayer meeting, and as it happens, only those who actually make the trip to Jerusalem will be saved because the rest of the country will be utterly destroyed.
If I am right, we know these survivors as the 144,000 Jews who meet with Jesus on Mt. Zion.
Where is the lamb?
In heaven thus so too must already the 144000
Which means the 144000 have already been resurrected and judged having gods name in thier foreheads.
They are the firstfruits of the resurrection. The rest of the dead believers are not resurrected until the first resurrection once Christ returns to the earth.
The 144000 make up the army which returns with the lamb. Why well we know they are already resurrected and they follow the lamb. Not not all can be the army since the second coming occurs before the gathering of all from the grave.
These 144000 did not commit fornication ie receive the woman's Mark.
These 144000 are those beheaded and seen in Rev 20:4
The dead in Christ shall rise first then we (the dead in Christ resurrected) which (now) are alive and remain shall be caught together with (others) whom sleep.
Paul speaks 1cor15 that we are made ALIVE from the dead at the resurrection.
