God calls us …“To be a people of Remembrance”History speaks but no one is listening while the light of mankind is almost gone.Today, lesson’s to be learned from the past history of mankind fall on deaf ears. News reports no longer give us both sides of events; instead they feed us biased visual and audio sound bites. We do not think anymore for ourselves because it takes effort and time to think. Rather we echo the opinions of others, because we have no time to develop our own.The result is manipulation of emotions, which now rule our minds and actions. The power of the media is so great that history can be altered within one generation and consequently the truth of our past can disappear like smoke in the wind…mankind… His Creatures choices with grave consequences.It is a history that has left a trail of blood in the desert. The Blood of mankind and the blood of the Nation of Israel and the Blood of Gods Redeemer…His Son JESUS…The Messiah and Savior of this world.This history records a battle of Galactic scale, involving mankind and angelic creatures both fallen and Holy; both seen and unseen.This history has been written down for you to know and understand by God Himself. It is contained in the Judeo / Christian Bible. Within its pages is the story of the Nation of Israel and your story as well. You say what have I in common with the Nation of Israel? Both of you are tied to the blood of Christ left in the Judean sand 2,000 years ago. Both of you are the prize being fought over by myriads of unseen angelic beings.Not only has the past and present of this history which you now currently are living out been written. But, its future ending has been written as well.You can read about it when you explore the history of the Nation of Israel and its Messiah in the Bible. Israel is Gods Prophetic Time Clock. The hands of time will only continue to tick for just a little while longer. On a day soon to come, at the last stroke of the mid-night hour; when the stars and moon will no longer give their light…JESUS WILL COME AGAIN as He promised. His sign will be plain to see by every eye. It will be like lightning that goes from the east to the west. The dark sky will light up for all to witness His coming back. Everyone around the world will see HIM at the same time. One Third of the Nation of Israel will recognize HIM at that time as the “One whom they have pierced” and be saved. He comes for us all… too confirm our individual decisions through the free will and free choice He has given us; to either accept or reject HIM as our Savior.Read and understand the History of the Nation of Israel because theirs is the only History that counts. Your life and your future after death are tied forever to the Nation of Israel and their Messiah Yeshua / Jesus.No other nation on earth has been destroyed and scattered to the four corners of the globe, and then re-gathered as the focus of world attention.No other nation declares by its re-emergence in time, that there is a God who deserves to be feared and loved and obeyed.No other nation exists as a declaration to the world that in the records of her history, we find our roots and in the predictions of her prophets we find our future.
The theme of the Book of Revelation is one of rewards for those that believe in Jesus, the Messiah of Israel, and the Son of God. That reward is to go home to Heaven.
Have you ever given any thought about the sacrificial love that GOD the Father showed each of us by sending His Only SON JESUS to die on that Cross in place of me and you, the ones who caused HIS PAIN.
In many of my stories I imagine God speaking directly to me.
“My child God said to me. I wanted to tell you personally what the Crucifixion of My Son meant to me.
You have children and grandchildren and I know you love them. I know that you would do all you could to protect them from harm and that you would gladly take upon yourself their death. I know this because you were created in my image with the ability to Love.
I know that if men took your child and beat him with whips that ripped both flesh and bone from his back…that you could not be restrained.
I know if men forced your child to carry a beam of heavy wood down the street as people swore at him, mocking him, and spitting on him… that you could not be restrained.
I know if men forced your child to lie down on that cross and then drove nails through his feet and hands to hold him there…that you could not be restrained.
Could you Ernie? The Lord asked softly…no Lord I said quietly.
I stood and watched as they did all those things to my Son. I stood there not for His sake but for yours, because He took that punishment not for His sake but for yours….I honored you through His Pain. But Ernie, when Jesus…MY SON cried out …MY GOD…MY GOD…WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKEN ME?
That was more than I could bear, so I turned away and cried uncontrollably. My Son had wept over Jerusalem; and now I wept over my Son. Yes, I could not look upon the Worlds Sins that MY Son was bearing, but even more than that, if I had looked at HIM at the moment HE said those words…I knew in my heart …
That I could not be restrained!
Ernie…I wanted you and those that say they love my Son, to know that even for the Joy set before both HIM and I…the Cross was the most difficult thing either of us have gone through.”
The Nation of Israel today has forgotten their God and His mighty works. Today Israel depends on its own strong arm, its technology and its weapons to protect them.
They do not yet know that their secret weapon is not themselves but God. Yet God has not forgotten His people Israel.
Rabbis today are discussing how and when to re-institute the Sacrificial System. They know they need a Temple to do that.
The Rabbis want a Temple to be prepared for the coming Messiah. SOON, the Nation of Israel will again be saying…Where is the Lamb?
The ancient Sanhedrin was the Jewish Supreme Court and was composed of 71 of Israel’s most revered Torah scholars. Christ was taken before the Sanhedrin during His trial. They were disbanded after 70 A.D. when the Temple was destroyed.
Rabbis believe the restoration of the Sanhedrin will precede the coming of the Messiah, as only the Sanhedrin has the authority to crown the Messiah as the Jewish King.
In October 2004, 71 Jews were ordained to restore the Sanhedrin in the city of Tiberius.
The first and most important sacrifice in the new Temple must be a pure unblemished Red Heifer, as specified in the book of Numbers, chapter 19. It is only the ashes of the Red Heifer that can purify the Temple so the Jews can worship there.
Jewish scholar’s know that a total of nine unblemished Red Heifers have been born during the entire period of the first and second Temples. Since the destruction of the second Temple, no perfect Red Heifer has been born until this generation.
In the late 1990’s, two perfect Red Heifers were born in Israel, and a third on a ranch in Texas. It has been 2000 years since the last Red Heifer was found and sacrificed.
Today everything needed for the construction of a new Temple is in place. The instruments used for the animal sacrifices—the first legal Sanhedrin in 1600 years—the first perfect Red Heifers in 2000 years and a newly anointed Priesthood of Levites and Cohanes ready to serve with new ceremonial garments made according to Gods requirements in the Old Testament…AND most of all the ARK of the COVENANT.
The Israeli government stated years ago that they have the Ark of the Covenant and will place it into the new temple when it is built in its place of Destiny on the Temple Mount.
They also have the Chief Cornerstone ready to take its position. It was honed out of stone by the hands of stonemasons, as it would have been formed in the Old Testament.
Only the Temple is now missing but the Nation is ready to rebuild it today on the Temple Mount if a peace plan can be made with the Arab Nations.
The “Dome of the Rock” has been an obstacle, but scholars today believe the Dome of the Rock is not sitting on the exact spot of the old Temple and that the new Temple could be constructed nearby. WE have a more sure word to believe than scholars!
God clarifies this in Revelation 12:2, when He says that the end time Temple will not be built the same as the others before it. It will be missing the area devoted to the Court of the Gentiles.
What does all this mean…. That the Return of Christ is getting very close…maybe even during your lifetime?
Gods Prophetic time clock is the Nation of Israel and the City of Jerusalem…Gods fulfilled prophecies demand that He be feared and obeyed.
In 1948 Israel after 2,600 years took its place again among the nations of the earth and Jerusalem, the city of God, is now a cup of trembling for the world.
One of the greatest Old Testament Books to do a Bible Study with your Jewish friend is the Book of Zechariah. The book is all about the identity of Jesus their Messiah and HIS 2nd Coming to save the 1/3 REMNANT of the Nation of Israel from the nations of the world that encircle Jerusalem to destroy Israel.
Zechariah also describes the believing Remnant of Israel finally coming into the Promises of the Kingdom where Christ will reign on earth for 1,000 years.
Listen to God speak from His Prophetic Word about His People Israel from Chapter 14 in the Book of Zechariah.
“For I will gather ALL the nations against Jerusalem to battle and the city will be captured, the houses plundered…
Then the Lord will go forth and fight against those nations, as when He fights on a day of battle…
(Remember in Acts 1: 11 at the Ascension of Jesus the two Angels said: “Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking into the sky? This Jesus, who has been taken up from you into heaven, will come in just the same way as you have watched Him go into Heaven).
…And in that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, which is in front of Jerusalem on the east, and the Mount of Olives will be split in its middle from east to west by a very large valley, so that half of the mountain will move toward the north and the other half toward the south.
And you (the 1/3 REMNENT of Jews left alive) will flee by the valley of MY Mountains
Then the Lord (Jesus) MY God will come and the HOLY Ones (you and I) with HIM! (we come with HIM at HIS 2nd Coming)
And it will come about in that day that there will be no light, the luminaries will go out…but it will come about at evening time there will be light…(Christ’s coming in the sky)
I believe it is at this time that those Jews given a way out of Jerusalem through the valley created by the earthquake of Christ setting his feet on the Mt. of Olives, will LOOK UP and see Christ coming with His HOLY Angels and Us…and they will “Mourn for HIM whom they have Pierced”… recognizing their Messiah.
Then Zechariah 13: 9 will finally come true. God will have purged out 2/3rds of the unbelieving Nation of Israel. Leaving only the 1/3 believing REMNANT.
“ I will bring the 1/3 part through the fire, Refine them as silver is refined and test them as gold is tested. They will call on MY Name,
(they will cry out the name Yeshua ….whose name means Salvation).
And I (Jesus) will answer them; I will say, they are MY people.
And they will say, The LORD is MY GOD.”
So I repeat GOD is not finished with Israel and GOD is not finished with you either!!!
If given the choice which would you choose?When you look back into the history of the civilizations of the world you will see a path of blood. It’s always been there meandering throughout the globes topography. It’s a gentle flowing … Continue reading
IT IS FINISHED !
ARE YOU A WARRIOR FOR CHRIST ?
The eyes of the Lord go to and fro throughout the earth looking for any who would believe. His eyes of fire search each heart that proclaims faith and then calls them to war. His fire can consume or His fire can bring warmth and light to your path as you follow in HIS footsteps.
It is more important today than ever to know your enemy. Put your time and efforts into studying the false doctrines of the enemy closest to you so you can draw the right weapon from Gods arsenal to help bring dead hearts to life.
Don’t sit comfortably by the campfire being warmed by others like you. You who know HIM, you who claim to know HIS voice, you who have eyes to see and ears to hear, you heard HIS CALL … COME…FOLLOW ME!
He did not call you to follow Him to heaven…that will come later. HE Calls you today to follow HIM to WAR… for the hearts and minds of those you love.
You are called to go forth into the darkness for you have seen a great light and you have been empowered to serve no matter who you are, no matter where you live…. no matter what the circumstances.
This battle is everywhere that you find people who know not the RISEN LORD. So go Boldly where you have never gone before.
Have you ever stopped to think how much God loves the Gentiles? God loves Gentiles so much that He Blinded His own Chosen people, whom He said are the apple of His eye, to the Truth about Jesus their Messiah.
God did this so Gentiles could receive the Gospel and become part of Gods eternal family. Jesus is the Jews Messiah, but He is also the hope of the Gentiles.
In Isaiah’s vision…God said “Who will go for us? The Holy Angels were silent, but Isaiah said…”Lord Send Me”.
That is the same commitment before the Lord of Hosts you and I must have in these end times we live in. We as believers need to go forth and say… Lord Send ME!
Just remember to reach into HIS fire and light your candle before you go…and then shine it into the darkness.
END TIMES THOUGHTS
Satan is already bringing signs and wonders that are False.
They come through the APOSTATE CHURCH and their FALSE TEACHERS. They are the First Sign of the 2nd Coming of JESUS in JUDGMENT…NOT LOVE.
As these Signs and Wonders continue to grow they will become bolder even to the point where believers may be misled. Yet that won’t happen because the Holy Spirit in every true believer will be able to discern the Truth from the Lie.
UNTIL ….GOD finally turns HIS Back to Those NON-BELIEVERS Who are NOT HIS and Gives Them Up to the FINAL DELUSION that will take them to the PLACE HE DOES NOT RESIDE, the Place Created for the DEVIL and HIS FALLEN ANGELS…..FOREVER.
The Apostle Paul said in 2 Corinthians 13:5 to Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Can’t you see for yourselves that Jesus Christ is in you — unless you actually fail the test?…this becomes more important every day for everyone who professes with their mouth that they know the Lord.
My words are for all who are looking more and more to Signs and Wonders in these Final Days Before the Lords Coming. Each of us must STOP WALKING in and out of the SHADOWS. We are called ONLY to FOLLOW JESUS and Follow HIS FOOTPRINTS that are in the LIGHT.
Only HIS FOOTPRINTS will Lead us HOME.
In the end we judge NO ONE in regard to their Salvation.
But JESUS WILL… you do not want to hear HIS WORDS in Matthew 7:21-23 spoken to you; “I NEVER KNEW YOU”.
Non-Believers were BORN to BELIEVE !
In my search for God through the years I have found that Mysteries are meant to be revealed and that Religions are complicated lies meant to Deceive. But The TRUTH…Gods TRUTH…is simple and clear.
Religion is the Voice of Man and cannot be defended from History, Science or Archeology because Religion is weaved from layers of complicated lies that will not stand. They are based on the shadows of legends, myths and fairy tales. I do not believe in the gods that man has revealed through multiple religions.
GODS Truth is about a relationship that can be defended from History, Science, and Archeology. But that’s not what excites me!
I believe in the God who revealed Himself to His Creation through His Word. The Word’s given through Inspiration to His Ancient Prophets and Apostles. The Words of the Old & New Testaments. The God that said man is but dust speaks to us today from ancient texts that He has supernaturally preserved through time. His Words of Truth have never changed because He has never changed…He Is the Ancient of Days, the Eternal and True God. He revealed Himself to man, man did not reveal Him!
God knows the beginning from the end and because He is THE ONLY GOD, He Supernaturally proves who He is through Prophecy / Pre-Written History; just as you would expect the real God to do…that’s what excites me!!!
God says to you …Seek Me and I will reveal Myself, My Son and My plan for your redemption to cure your disease of Sin. The same choice I gave through Moses to the Nation of Israel in the desert I now give to you. Choose Eternal Death or Choose Eternal Life and Believe in ME and come Home!
Since 1985 I have grown up in the Church with beautiful Hymns and worship songs that touch me deeply. But hearing Messianic Jewish music and their lyrics with such rich meanings touches me deeper than anything else. I am a Messianic Jew. My life is rooted in Christ for He holds me together with Himself on HIS Cross. The Cross-of wood whose roots go deep into the Judean desert into which it was planted 2,000 years ago.
If God had chosen music to be played in the desert when John the Baptist said “BEHOLD…the Lamb of God who comes to take away the sins of the world.” It would have been Messianic Praise Music and would have lifted John’s Soul into the presence of God as it does mine.
Take the time to read the Testimony of John the Baptist (A Jew) in
John 1: 19-34. John was the prophesied forerunner of the Messiah. John was an obedient voice crying in the wilderness and baptizing in the wilderness because God told him that one day he would recognize the Messiah in the Jordan River in the waters of Baptism.
Later John would be in prison awaiting his death by beheading. His faith had wavered not understanding that He too would have to carry His own CROSS-to follow Christ. He sent word to Jesus and asked, “Are you the one who was to come, or should we expect someone else?”
Jesus replied, “Go back and report to John what you hear and see: The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy are cured, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is preached to the poor. Blessed is the man who does not fall away on account of me.” (Matthew 11:2-6)
Those words of Christ were good enough for John to face his death in peace. The same words representing the credentials of the Messiah of Israel should also be good enough for you to both recognize HIM and then choose to live your life for HIM.
Of late I have had the distinct dis-pleasure of meeting fellow Christians who stated that ONLY their denomination understood and followed the correct interpretation of the Bible.
They made it clear to me what they believed and that they were right and the rest of the denominations were wrong.
They stated clearly what parts of the Bible they accepted.
I thought it was; ALL Gods Word or not Gods Word at all !
When I am asked about which denomination I belong to I say…”I am not a Baptist, Methodist, Presbyterian, Catholic, Lutheran, Pentecostal, Charismatic, Eastern Orthodox or Messianic Jew.
I follow the original. The One True Church made up of Born again Christians and Born Again Jews. My worship and my allegiance is to the One Founder of the One True Faith…Messiah Yeshua, Jesus The Christ, the Son of God.
You will find me daily before HIS CROSS on my face in the Judean dirt before His Nail Pierced Feet.
HIS Church began at the Cross and has remained the same for 2,000 years…Salvation by Faith Alone, by Grace Alone, In Christ Alone!
We do not add bodies to his church…HE ALONE builds HIS CHURCH.
Together each of us belongs to an Ancient Faith. Together we are HIS called out ones…His Church…His Ecclesia…His Temple made up of Living Stones.
I hope the walls that separate us will come down some time in the future. I hope we will focus on sound doctrine. I hope every Church that claims Christ will preach not only about His Love, but also about His Coming with Fire in His Eyes; in Judgment, which is the real reason to FEAR THE LORD.
I hope we stop arguing about who among us is right. So once and for all we can act like family…for that is what we are…Brothers and Sisters in Christ…CALLED by HIM to LOVE One Another.
Focusing on our differences and defending our points of view especially when we cannot support them by the Word of God… is wrong!
The ONLY right is what should unify us…HIS CROSS! The great commission is not to go out to the world and argue. We are called to go out to the world with the Gospel of Salvation in Christ alone.
The Apostle Paul set the pattern for ALL Believers 2,000 years ago…Preach His Crucifixion, His CROSS and His Resurrection and the hope we have as believers established solidly in the fact that He is Coming Again Soon, But ONLY for HIS Ecclesia!
Their faces I formed so that mine they would see.
Ears to listen for the Word I would speak.
Eyes to see, minds to understand.
All they required I made with my Hand.
The Law and the Prophets for centuries foretold.
The birth of a baby begotten of old.
In words UN-Encoded, with language so plain.
That even the simplest could call on my name.
Fathom mysteries confounding the wise.
See the Messiah through a child’s eyes.
