5 Cities Project


Site last updated: 22 July 2021


A call to rally the five wise virgins prior to the wedding feast…

(the wise virgins are those who “have received the truth, and have taken the Holy Spirit for their guide, and have not been deceived”)



Isaiah 19:18


18 ¶ In that day shall five cities in the land of Egypt speak the language of Canaan, and swear to the Lord of hosts; one shall be called, The city of destruction.


In the spirit of Isaiah 19:18 …..a group of like minded individuals (swear to the  ) preparing for the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. This is the focus of this group, not the study of Hebrew. 


כי לא מחשבותי מחשבותיכם ולא דרכיכם דרכי נאם יהוה


Secondary is the understanding that we know very little of the plans and ways of God (Isaiah 55:8)  Much of the Gospel is lost in translation thus getting back to what God intended should be very valuable, and a good reason to study God’s words in the original text,  but not the primary focus.





If you feel the need to become part of a group, of like minded individuals, to navigate the events leading up to the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, then this may be a group that can benefit you. This web site will be a holding place for general ideas and direction of the group while the main discussion will be conducted on gab.com https://gab.com/groups/4789 and on MeWe: https://mewe.com/group/60c7642f55fda04712d7070c.  I assume most will not feel comfortable within this type of group and will stay with their current support group (church or religious study group) Some groups are more active than most in this type of effort and this would fit into preparations for the greater exodus (like what I see within FAI/Joel Richardson’s or Lion and Lamb ministries greater exodus teaching) I assume the basic belief of these type of groups is that everyone needs to believe and prepare exactly the way they are (Like lion and lamb teachings on festival observance on the exact day as they do i.e. Passover on Nisan 14) so reaching outside of their own groups is useless and a flawed approach.   Time will tell.  (One nibble in 3 years.  May2019- …California panic..Biden goes in office 2021)





Basic rules for group discussions…  The Golden Rule.

This is not a theology debating group.

Like Mindedness (at a High Level):

1.      Jesus is the Christ

By another name (יְהוָ֔ה): Belief in the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in and with/through a covenant relationship with mankind (אֶת־בְּרִיתִ֖י)

2.      Premillennialist

3.      Prewrath end time view (Not that pretribulation people are not welcome.  …Why would you join if there are no events to navigate?)

4.      Embrace the republican form of government. Embrace the freedom model originally set up under the United States Constitution until the Kingdom of God is established on earth.


Principle level:

Seek to always be guided by the Spirit of God

Avoid Mark of the beast Revelation 13:16

God has given  people dominion over the earth

God has given freedom/liberty to each individual
People are able to govern themselves

People give government the authority and power to govern, not the other way around

Qualify to be Marked as members of  The Church of the Firstborn”, those who have the mark in their forehead Revelation 7:3; 9:4; 14:1; 22:4





I am looking for a gathering of individuals that will be preparing for the second coming.  Thus the reference to Isaiah and the five cities ( a unique grouping) … (notice that study of Hebrew is not listed as something common among this group, but may be a good idea.)



 “..to escape all these things that shall come to pass..”   Luke 21:36, 

The city of destruction ….And there shall be gathered unto it out of every nation under heaven;

 and it shall be the only people that shall not be at war one with another.

 And it shall be said among the wicked: Let us not go up to battle against Zion,

 for the inhabitants of Zion are terrible; wherefore we cannot stand. (See Isaiah 60)


 Isa 19:18 ; Zephaniah 3:8-9

Zephaniah’s end day, day of wrath, outstretched arm, cleansing, vision  covers this important effort of preparation prior to the second coming. His focus is on the gathering of remnant, covenant people ( the second exodus spoken of by Joel Richardson). So is the group (5 cities) in Isaiah 19:18 used to complete the work or a result of that work? Is this limited to a small event in Egypt? Does this apply on a larger scale? Looking at Zephaniah I see this as a major wrath theme. In the spirit of Isaiah 19:18 I think it would be good to fully understand what the 5 cities represent. Are these covenant peoples or a group that actually speak (or at least study the original text) the language of Canaan?  With this project on my mind I was reading Isaiah 28.   Vs 9 stood out to me with the thought that maybe it is referring to this way of studying (using Hebrew to enhance your understanding or reading in the original Hebrew) rather than the level, and or depth, of study as I have always thought up to this time.

Will there be five specific locations or does the number five have a significant meaning? (Could Egypt be symbolic for the World at large/Babylon? Zeph 3:8-20...From beyond the rivers of Ethiopia my suppliants, even the daughter of my dispersed, shall bring mine offering...At that time will I bring you again, even in the time that I gather you: for I will make you a name and a praise among all people of the earth, when I turn back your captivity before your eyes, saith the Lord...) What can be applied from  the Five cities of the plains? Good vs Evil? )  Also one city will have a reputation of being great/terrible  “The city of destruction”. Zephaniah  connects to the Day of the Lord. It is instructive that vs 8 contains all the letters of the Aleph Bet (the only place in the old testament that does that) Aleph – Tav  Alpha and Omega.  9: “…I turn to the people a pure alanguage, that they may all call upon the name of the Lord, to serve him…”


Disclaimer: I know that any works of man will fall short when it comes to this effort and that God is in charge.  This is His work and most of what is done is by His hand.  “…that people will know that…. I am GOD…”  My hope is that we may be found worthy and ready to play a role in the work


How do we prepare for the gathering in?  Can preparations we do now help to facilitate the gathering in, in the near future?

Without a working crystal ball (that would identify the location of cities of refuge, if they even exist at this time or if being there now would be of any use) What productive actions can and should be taken to prepare for that time?


Some would say you need to join a specific Church or group to qualify…(Time will tell.  That I would consider a theology debate..  Maybe as this group matures it might become obvious that group membership and or association is exactly what is needed. If and when that happens there will no longer be a need of this group )


Phase one: find like minded individuals. Invite them to this group to build up communities.


Ideas: (during the Mark of the beast system, People will need to be out of debt!!!)

1.      Develop and strengthen local communities to build core groups.

a.       Social media groups like MeWe or Gab could be one method to accomplish this.  With the bias and censorship from most media this won’t happen on sites like twitter and facebook.

b.      Ham radio groups

2.      Identify and build up regional gathering spots (Not to be openly shared with the World at large but not secret..)  Like RV CO-Ops ??

a.       Should be away from major cities or future hot spots but within a days travel

b.      Locations should be unknown or not shared with the general public

c.       Have the basic ability to support short term gatherings. Shelter, water storage, food, sewer, Basic defense

3.      Develop links with other groups

a.       Some sites will become longer term safety zones for groups to roll up to as needed

b.      Ham radio Via HF, Allstar, WiresX groups etc.

c.       What role can front groups like bugout.earth provide for this type of effort?

With the introduction of bugout.earth, on gap and MeWe (7/1/2021) , it got me thinking about how other site like this might help in finding like minded people.  At first glance I’m not sure their model will survive. They take a cut in recruiting people to other preper sites/landowners and as a ongoing service (for the 5 or 10 year lease period) provide some sort of dispute resolution entity. I do see a valuable role in providing a vetting procedure for new members, but wonder how effective they will be in that effort.   With the recent possibility that Jan 6th was a government sponsored, or at the least encouraged, event, it seems there is a real need to weed out Government infiltrators from recruits.  (since launching this effort on various forums. It appears the only people that have signed up to date, may be from that group)







The gathering out will commence during the polarization phase of the Lord’s work

Polarizations / Arm of the Lord Raised 
iah 51:9, Luke 
12:51, John 12:38



The ultimate gathering in will be that which is talked about by Jeremiah (Jer 23:7-8 )

Reference the call to gather in Zepheniah 2:1-3

Mother of Abominations makes war with the Saints: Revelation 12:17, Dan 7:21-25 

Flee unto Zion/ The might of Zion shall go forth: Isaiah 2:3-4, 29:7-8

 I will bring you out from the people, and will gather you out of the countries wherein ye are scattered, with a mighty hand, and with a stretched out arm, … and ye shall know that I am the Lord. Ezekial 20

When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation …. flee into the mountains Mathew 24:15-16

He that dwelleth in the secret place: Psalm 91

Daniel 12:1 “….and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the dbook

1 Thessalonians 5:5 all the achildren of light,


The Parable Of The Sower And The Seed (Matthew 13:1-23)
