22 Thus says the Lord:
“Behold, a people comes from the north country,
And a great nation will be raised from the farthest parts of the earth.
23 They will lay hold on bow and spear;
They are cruel and have no mercy;
Their voice roars like the sea;
And they ride on horses,
As men of war set in array against you, O daughter of Zion.”
24 We have heard the report of it;
Our hands grow feeble.
Anguish has taken hold of us,
Pain as of a woman in [e]labor.
25 Do not go out into the field,
Nor walk by the way.
Because of the sword of the enemy,
Fear is on every side.
26 O daughter of my people,
Dress in sackcloth
And roll about in ashes!
Make mourning as for an only son, most bitter lamentation;
For the plunderer will suddenly come upon us.
27 “I have set you as an assayer and a fortress among My people,
That you may know and test their way.
28 They are all stubborn rebels, walking as slanderers.
They are bronze and iron,
They are all corrupters;
29 The bellows blow fiercely,
The lead is consumed by the fire;
The smelter refines in vain,
For the wicked are not drawn off.
30 People will call them rejected silver,
Because the Lord has rejected them.”
LONDON, September 19. /TASS/. On Monday, the United Kingdom will bid farewell to Queen Elizabeth II who ruled the country for a record 70 years and 7 months.

According to newspapers, a number of leaders, including US President Joe Biden, French President Emmanuel Macron and Japan’s Emperor Naruhito will travel separately for security reasons.

What does Elizabeth mean?
[ 4 syll. e-li-za-bet(h), el-izabe-th ] The baby girl name Elizabeth is also used as a boy name, though it is far more popular for girls. It is pronounced ih-LIHZ-ah-Bah-TH (English) †. Elizabeth has its origins in the Hebrew language.
It is used largely in English, Greek, and Hebrew. The meaning of Elizabeth is ‘God is perfection, God is my oath’.
It is a biblical name from el which means ‘God, powerful’ ; sheba ‘oath, seven’. The name is derived via Elisabet (Old Greek) and Elisabetha (Latin) from Elisheba (Hebrew). The element sheba (meaning ‘oath, seven’) alludes to perfection, and the number seven is a biblical symbol of God’s perfect work of creating the world in seven days.
In the Old Testament of the Bible, Elisheba was the wife of Aaron, while in the New Testament, Elisabeth was the mother of John the Baptist and the first to realize that her cousin Mary was to bear Jesus Christ.
As a result of the biblical mention, the name was popular in medieval times. In Eastern Europe, it would sometimes be bestowed in honor of Saint Elisabeth of Hungary (1207-1231), the daughter of King Andrew II who gave her wealth to the poor and became a model of Christian charity. The name became popular in England only in the 16th century during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I (1533-1603), who was named after her grandmother Elizabeth of York, and had the nickname ‘Good Queen Bess’.
Due to the fame of the queen, the name Elizabeth became more popular than the older form Elisabeth. By the 17th century, one in four baby girls in England were given the name Elizabeth. In the 20th century, the name was again popularized by royal associations when Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon (1900-2002) became the Queen Consort of King George VI, and more so when her daughter became Queen Elizabeth II (1926-).
The Tribulation is commencing…
Please repent, carry your cross daily and accept the free gift of Jesus Christ’s Death on the Cross for payment for your sins.
