In that day shall five cities in the
In the spirit of Isaiah …..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. 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 (gaining insight from the original text, like a schoolmaster leading us to greater understanding)
should be very valuable but not the primary focus. 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”)
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 the https://mewe.com/join/5citiesproject
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
3. Prewrath end time view (Not that pretribulation people are not welcome. …Why would you join if there are no events to navigate?)
Seek to always be guided by the Spirit of God
Avoid Mark of the beast Revelation 13:16
Qualify to be Marked as the saints who have the mark in their forehead Revelation 7:3; 9:4; 14:1; 22:4
Qualify as: holy ones and valiant ones. Become a covenant people
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
for the inhabitants of
Isa ; Zephaniah 3:8-9
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..)
Phase one: find like minded individuals. Invite them to this group to build up communities. (CAUTION: a method needs to be put in place to ensure these individuals are true seekers of FREEdom. group understanding/adoption of this is key..)
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. Yahoo groups one method to accomplish this
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..)
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, 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.
The gathering out will commence during the polarization phase of the Lord’s work
Polarizations / Arm of
the Lord Raised
Isaiah 51:9, Luke , John
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
… 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
Ezekiel 14 : 22 a remnant that shall be brought forth,
The Parable Of The Sower And The Seed (Matthew 13:1-23)

Part of the Greater Exodus? Eddie Chumney (found on youtube
"... Jehovah exempts a righteous remnant of his people called his “holy ones” and “valiant ones” from a worldwide destruction (Isaiah 13:3)..."
"...Jehovah doesn’t deny the righteous. We observe his healing and anointing his repentant people later in the Book of Isaiah (Isaiah 30:26; 57:18-19; 58:8; 61:3)...... Isaiah has us wade through the judgmental parts of his prophecy before he presents Jehovah’s glorious promises, all doesn’t end in gloom and doom. If Jehovah’s people repent in time, they may yet qualify for his divine blessings..."
Justice . . . righteousness. The reestablishment of justice and righteousness qualifies Jehovah’s people for deliverance from destruction in Jehovah’s Day of Judgment
that day five Hebrew-speaking cities in the
Five “cities” or city-states in the land of Egypt contain covenant communities of people who swear allegiance to Israel’s God in his Day of Judgment. Rather than trust in human measures to counter threats facing the nation, these inhabitants instead turn to their Maker. The existence of a “City of Righteousness” in the land of Egypt alludes to the affiliation of Jehovah’s end-time servant—Jehovah’s righteousness (Isaiah 41:2; 46:11-13)—with Egypt’s covenant communities (cf. Isaiah 1:26; 38:4-6). As Joseph in Egypt served as a savior to his brothers in a time of evil, so does Jehovah’s servant (v 20).
19 In that day there shall be an altar erected to Jehovah in the midst of the land of Egypt and a monument to Jehovah at its border.20 They shall serve as a sign and testimony of Jehovah of Hosts in the land of Egypt: when they cry out to Jehovah because of the oppressors, he will send them a savior, who will take up their cause and deliver them.
Just as a temple was built to Israel’s God in ancient Egypt by émigré Israelites, so one is built “in the midst” of end-time Egypt, its “altar” denoting both atonement for transgression and consecrated offerings. A “monument” at Egypt’s border suggests a memorial erected by Jehovah’s people who dwelt there. Their serving as a “sign” and “testimony” reflects these persons enduring loyalty in spite of their falling victim to injustices at the hands of oppressors. Just as Jehovah sent Moses in answer to his people’s cries in ancient Egypt (Exodus 3:1-9), so he sends them a “savior”—his end-time servant.
Forming alliances against Assyria’s aggression—as do Aram and Ephraim (Isaiah 7:1-6)—is to rely on an arm of flesh (Isaiah 20:5-6; 30:1-5), not on Jehovah or on the protection clause of his covenant. Keeping his law and word—the terms of his covenant—provides the only assurance against calamity in Jehovah’s Day of Judgment.
