Oh, Go To Fire

OH, GO TO FIRE

 

 

That title doesn’t have a real ring to it, like the curse word hell, but it may be more accurate. Only one Human has ever died the second death, the permanent death, and that Person is Yeshua HaMashiach. All other humans, past, present, and those alive and dying during the 1,000-year Millennium die the temporary death, known as sleep to Yeshua. Yeshua is the only Person to have ever died a permanent death, carrying all the sins of the world for all time. Thank Yahweh He rose from the dead! Are you grateful that Yeshua died in your place? You should be. Could you raise yourself from the dead? I doubt it.

 

Acts 4:12, “Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name (Yahweh) under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”

 

Isaiah 43:3a, “For I am Yahweh your Mighty One, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.”

 

Isaiah 49:26, “All flesh shall know that I, Yahweh, am your Savior, and your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.”

 

Isaiah 60:16, “You shall drink the milk of the Gentiles, and milk the breast of kings; you shall know that I, Yahweh, am your Savior and your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.”

 

Mark 9:43, “If your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter into life maimed, rather than having two hands, to go to (gehenna, Strong’s # G1067) hell, into the fire that shall never be quenched.”

 

Gehenna was the valley of (the son of) Hinnom; gehenna (or Ge-Hinnom), a valley of Jerusalem. This valley was used as the trash dump outside Jerusalem, which was always burning. Some condemned criminals were tossed into this dump to burn their bodies, as a means of dishonor, without a proper, honorable burial. To get thrown into the burning ditch of gehenna was a means of punishment by fire, though you would already be dead. Torture was not involved and not insinuated in Yeshua’s words, though Yeshua did associate gehenna with fire. The fire was used to destroy the carcass, not torture the soul. The fire remains forever, the condemned person does not.

 

Mark 9:47, “And if your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out. It is better for you to enter the kingdom of Yahweh with one eye, rather than having two eyes, to be cast into hell (gehenna) fire.”

 

Yeshua used this picture of the burning dump outside Jerusalem to give us a digital picture of the fate of an unrepentant sinner. Do you get the 100-megapixel picture? It’s unfortunate that the translators use the English word hell, because in the Greek there are two words used. Hades means the grave, or a hole in the ground, but sometimes is translated hell in the New Testament. It’s the place where dead (asleep, as Yeshua would say) people go, the grave. It’s the temporary resting place of our departed friends and relatives.

 

Ecclesiastes 3:19-20, “For what happens to the sons of men also happens to animals; one thing befalls them: as one dies, so dies the other. Surely, they all have one breath; man has no advantage over animals, for all is vanity. 20All go to one place: all are from the dust, and all return to dust.”

 

Men and beasts both die and decompose back to dust. Genesis 3:19, “In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread till you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken; for dust you are, and to dust you shall return.”

 

Ecclesiastes 9:10, “Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might; for there is no work or device or knowledge or wisdom in the grave where you are going.”

 

Job knew where he was going when he died, Job 17:13, “If I wait for the grave as my house, if I make my bed in the darkness,”

 

Yeshua became flesh like us. John 1:14, “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.” Hebrews 2:14, “Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil,” Acts 2:31, “he, foreseeing this, spoke concerning the resurrection of the Messiah, that His soul was not left in Hades (the grave), nor did His flesh see corruption.” Yeshua was put in a grave as a mortal man, but did not stay there long enough to decay!! He resurrected in three days, before decomposition set in.

 

1 Corinthians 15:55, “O Death, where is your sting? O Hades (grave), where is your victory?” Hell and hades have two different meanings. Keep that in mind as we proceed.

 

When you are dead and buried in a grave, you do not know it. Ecclesiastes 9:5, “For the living know that they will die; but the dead know nothing, and they have no more reward, for the memory of them is forgotten.”

 

So what’s the difference between hell and hades? When and how does a dead person in a grave go to fiery judgment?

 

John 5:28-29, “Do not marvel at this; for the hour is coming in which all who are in the graves will hear His voice 29and come forth—those who have done good, to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of condemnation (Greek word krisis, judgment).” Remember, it’s Yeshua’s krisis that is coming during the latter part of the Great Tribulation, but it looks like some humans also have a krisis, or judgment, waiting for them. Resurrection Day is an appointment date on Yahweh’s calendar, don’t miss it. Notice the theology of this Scripture, no fiery torment of the unsaved in hell before a judgment, or krisis, opportunity day. Judgment Day is fast approaching for the unsaved, but like I’ve said before, one man’s Judgment Day is another man’s Resurrection Day, or Rapture Day, or Jubilee Day. Are you getting the concept?

 

Revelation 20:4-6, “And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Yeshua and for the word of Yahweh, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Messiah for a thousand years. 5But the rest of the dead did not live again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. 6Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of Yahweh and of Messiah, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.”

 

This passage is talking about the first resurrection, to LIFE! The resurrection to Judgment Day does not happen until the end of the thousand-year reign of Messiah on earth. (Time travel forward 1,000 years.) Revelation 20:11-12, “Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them. 12And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before Yahweh, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books.”

 

The dead in Messiah, Yeshua HaMashiach, are raised to life at His Second Coming. Remember, Rapture Day = Resurrection Day. 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17, “For the Master Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of Yahweh. And the dead in Messiah will rise first. 17Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Master in the air. And thus we shall always be with Yahweh.”

 

Now we know, the saved humans resurrect to everlasting life at Messiah’s Second Coming, known as the first resurrection, and “the rest of the dead”, the unsaved lost humans, resurrect to mortal life for judgment at the end of the 1,000 year Millennial Reign of Yeshua, known as the second resurrection to judgment. Reread Revelation 20:11-12, all humans die a temporary death, known as sleep to Yeshua, until after the Great White Throne judgment. After that Great White Throne judgment, anyone who does not receive Yeshua as their Savior, will die the second death, the permanent death, from which only One Person has ever resurrected. At that Great White Throne judgment seat, I believe those that never had a chance to hear the Name of Yeshua named or had a chance to receive Him as Savior, will have that chance at the Judgment. We really have no idea how long that Judgment Day will last. It could last one day, one year, or another 1,000 years, or more. Maybe we should call it Judgment Age.

 

Is there a third resurrection of incorrigible dead? You will have to make up your own mind, but the Scriptures do not teach that there is. Verses 13-15 of Revelation 20 are connected to the second resurrection at the end of the 1,000 year Millennial Reign, “The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and (temporary, sleep) Death and (the grave) Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works. 14Then Death and (the grave) Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second (permanent) death. 15And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.” Does anyone end up in eternal temporary death of the grave? It doesn’t look like it; you either get eternal life or fiery permanent death in the lake of fire, known as the second death. No one is going to end up in the dust of temporary sleep death for more than 7,000 years. That is proven in verse 14 above wherein death and its counterpart grave are thrown into the second death, the lake of fire, permanent death. Are there some “bad” people who will not repent at the Great White Throne final opportunity judgment? Yes. Revelation 21:8, “But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, (drug) sorcerers (includes pharmacist poisoners), idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.” The unrepentant wicked will suffer a permanent fiery death, but I pray that all humans will repent, either now or immediately upon their resurrection to judgment.

 

You only get to die the temporary sleep death once per Hebrews 9:27, “And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment.” Once you are resurrected, you will have eternal life, or you will be judged (i.e. given the chance to choose Yeshua). Once judged by Yahweh, you will have eternal life or eternal fiery death. I pray only a few will be found guilty of sin in Yahweh’s Great White Court. The final wages you will be paid on that day are a firestorm you really don’t want. Romans 6:23, “For the wages of sin is (permanent, fiery, lake of fire) death, but the gift of Yahweh is eternal life in Messiah Yeshua our Master.” Absence of life, cessation of life, annihilation of life, just the thought of it brings on a heart-breaking sadness that one does not want to contemplate.

 

Hebrews 10:26-27, “For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, 27but a certain fearful expectation of judgment, and fiery indignation which will devour the adversaries.” Yeshua’s once-for-all final sacrifice in 30 CE is the only one that Yahweh will accept on behalf of any and all sinners. Will unrepentant sinners be tortured for all eternity or will they be devoured, and that quite quickly? Those that have never heard the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the Messiah, will have a one-time final offer of salvation at the Great White Throne judgment seat. The sentence Yahweh hands out on that day will have instant eternal consequences, eternal life or instant obliteration at the hands of your loving Heavenly Creator.

 

Psalm 37:20, “But the wicked shall perish; and the enemies of Yahweh, like the splendor of the meadows, shall vanish. Into smoke they shall vanish away.” Where there’s smoke, there’s fire. Malachi 4:1, “For behold, the day is coming, burning like an oven, and all the proud, yes, all who do wickedly will be stubble. And the day which is coming shall burn them up,” says Yahweh of hosts, “That will leave them neither root nor branch.” The final end of the wicked is to be burned up, totally consumed, nothing left but smoke, it’s not a pretty picture. There is no other chance for life after being sentenced to permanent death and thrown into the lake of fire. The best mental picture I get from this study is that of the bug zapper. Zzzztttt. It ain’t over till it’s over, but when you get tossed into the lake of fire, it’s over, and nobody will be singing over you. The fat lady will be worshiping Yahweh.

 

Yahweh is love and has no desire that any human should perish. 2 Peter 3:8-9, “But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with Yahweh one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 9Yahweh is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.” He doesn’t want to torment or torture anyone, unlike our terrorist buddies. No one will be condemned to hell fire based on a judgment of ignorance of Yahweh’s truth of the Gospel. Everyone will have a true honest real opportunity to accept or reject Yeshua as their Savior. Everyone will get their day in heaven’s Court. Yahweh is perfectly just and fair, and no one will be sentenced to eternal death without first hearing the Good News of Yeshua’s plan for them. He wants holy children that accept His precious gift of life. He will lead you into righteousness if you let Him. Open your heart and life to Yeshua today.

 

Psalm 96:10-13, “Say among the nations, “Yahweh reigns;

The world also is firmly established,

It shall not be moved;

He shall judge the peoples righteously.”

11 Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad;

Let the sea roar, and all its fullness;

12 Let the field be joyful, and all that is in it.

Then all the trees of the woods will rejoice before Yahweh.

13 For He is coming, for He is coming to judge the earth.

He shall judge the world with righteousness,

And the peoples with His truth.”

Finishing the Mystery

 

FINISHING THE MYSTERY

 

Trumpets 5, 6, and 7 are Woes 1, 2, and 3.

 

Revelation 8:13, “And I looked, and I heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, “Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth, because of the remaining blasts of the trumpet of the three angels who are about to sound!””

 

Revelation 10:7, “but in the days of the sounding of the seventh angel, when he is about to sound, the mystery of Yahweh would be finished, as He declared to His servants the prophets.”

 

Revelation 11:15, “Then the seventh angel sounded: And there were loud voices in heaven, saying, “The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Master and of His Messiah, and He shall reign forever and ever!””

 

1 Corinthians 15:42-56, “So also is the resurrection of the dead. The body is sown in corruption, it is raised in incorruption. 43It is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory. It is sown in weakness, it is raised in power. 44It is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body. 45And so it is written, “The first man Adam became a living being.” The last Adam became a life-giving spirit.

46However, the spiritual is not first, but the natural, and afterward the spiritual. 47The first man was of the earth, made of dust; the second Man is the Master from heaven. 48As was the man of dust, so also are those who are made of dust; and as is the heavenly Man, so also are those who are heavenly. 49And as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly Man.

50Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of Yahweh; nor does corruption inherit incorruption. 51Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed—52in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 53For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. 54So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory.” 55“O Death, where is your sting?

O Hades, where is your victory?” 56The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law. 57But thanks be to Yahweh, who gives us the victory through our Master Yeshua HaMashiach.”

 

The context of 1 Corinthians 15 is the resurrection of the physically dead in Messiah. Notice which trumpet accompanies this resurrection, it is the last trumpet, which we know from Revelation is the 7th trumpet, the third woe of judgment on the earth. Folks, this trumpet is sounded in the last year of the seven year tribulation, not before the first year. The mystery that John speaks of being finished in Revelation 10, is the same mystery Paul speaks of in 1 Corinthians 15. The saints inherit the Kingdom of Yahweh, all the saints receive all of their inheritance. It is the great Jubilee Day that Yeshua brings with Him when He returns to earth to set up His Kingdom on earth with all the saints who will then be transformed into their incorruptible bodies.

 

1 Thessalonians 4:13-17, “But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep (in physical death), lest you sorrow as others who have no hope. 14For if we believe that Yeshua died and rose again, even so Yahweh will bring with Him those who sleep (are dead) in Yeshua. 15For this we say to you by the word of the Master, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Master will by no means precede those who are asleep (dead). 16For the Master Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of Yahweh. And the (physically) dead in Messiah will rise first. 17Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Master in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Master. 18Therefore comfort one another with these words.”

 

Paul is talking about the same issue in 1 Thessalonians 4 that he was speaking about in 1 Corinthians 15, Resurrection Day. Resurrection Day for the saints is Judgment Day for the world. Jubilee Day for the saints is Judgment Day for the world. Rapture Day for the saints is Judgment Day for the world. Yeshua’s Second Coming is Judgment Day for the world. Verse 17 is one of the foundational verses used to support the “Rapture Theory”. There is no biblical support for a pre-tribulation rapture of the saints. All these events happen on the same day, the Day of Yahweh, Judgment Day. The trumpet of Yahweh in verse 16 above is the seventh trumpet of Revelation 8:13, 10:7, and 11:15. I am unaware of any other trumpet sounding after the seventh trumpet, which Paul calls the Last Trumpet in 1 Corinthians 15:52. Please let it soak into your precious hearts and minds that the “Rapture Theory” is barely a 200-year old heresy. The early church fathers, including Paul and the rest of the Apostles, knew nothing of a pre-tribulation rapture of the Church. There are scriptures that tell of the Church fleeing to a place of safety during the toughest days of the tribulation, but that may prove to be a hiding place on earth in the Holy Spirit. Revelation 12:5-6, “She bore a male Child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her Child was caught up to Yahweh and His throne. 6Then the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by Yahweh, that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days.” Notice who went to heaven, Yeshua, not you and me. The Church goes into the wilderness for protection during the nastiest days of Judgment, the final 1260 days, not before the Tribulation. Revelation 12 sounds like something the Church does, not Yeshua. FLEE!

 

Yeshua speaks of this fleeing in Matthew 24:16. Notice the context, the abomination of desolation is standing on the holy Temple Mount in Jerusalem. Folks, that happens about 1 nanosecond before Yeshua returns to destroy the Antichrist. Matthew 24:29-31, “Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 30Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.”

 

Dear friends, please notice that this trumpet Yeshua speaks of in verse 31 is AFTER the tribulation, AT the second coming of Yeshua, not a pre-tribulation trumpet or rapture. It is the last trumpet, the seventh trumpet. This gathering of the saints is again the same resurrection that Paul spoke of.

 

The mystery that Yahweh wants to finish is the giving of the inheritance that He has been promising to all His saints for 6,000 years! No saint in all of human and biblical history has yet received the promises that Yahweh has made to us. We are about to receive our inheritance, our reward. His Word is at stake! His honor and integrity are at stake! His glory is at stake! Will Yahweh keep His Word to all His saints?? Yes, of course He will, but have you read Hebrews 11 lately? Verse 1, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Our faith is the catalyst that will see us through the tribulation unto the second coming of our Master Yeshua. Verse 6, “6But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to Yahweh must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” Keep believing to the end; Yeshua said those that endure to the end will be saved. No one on this planet, dead or alive, is saved yet. Verse 10, “for he (Abraham) waited for the city which has foundations, whose builder and maker is Yahweh.” The New Jerusalem is our inheritance, wait in faith, it will show up with Yeshua’s coming Kingdom. Verses 13-14, “These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off were assured of them, embraced them and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth. 14For those who say such things declare plainly that they seek a homeland.” No saint has yet received THE promise from Yahweh. We have not yet received our incorruptible eternal never-dying reward. Keep believing for a little while longer. Verse 16, “But now they desire a better, that is, a heavenly country. Therefore Yahweh is not ashamed to be called their Mighty One, for He has prepared a city for them.” Yeshua said He had to go away to prepare a place for us, the believing saints. Hold on, the mystery is about to be revealed. Verses 35-40, “Women received their dead raised to life again. Others were tortured, not accepting deliverance, that they might obtain a better resurrection. 36Still others had trial of mockings and scourgings, yes, and of chains and imprisonment. 37They were stoned, they were sawn in two, were tempted, were slain with the sword. They wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins, being destitute, afflicted, tormented—38of whom the world was not worthy. They wandered in deserts and mountains, in dens and caves of the earth. 39And all these, having obtained a good testimony through faith, did not receive the promise, 40Yahweh having provided something better for us, that they should not be made perfect apart from us.”

 

When Yeshua returns to earth, Yahweh is going to make all saints from all ages perfect, complete, consummated. We will be fulfilled along with prophecy. This is the consummation of the ages, Yahweh is wrapping up human history as we know it. When you get your incorruptible body that will never be able to die, ever, you can then rejoice and receive all that Yahweh has for you for all eternity. Yeshua and Yahweh are coming to earth to tabernacle with us in a beautiful, rather large, ziggurat called the New Jerusalem. Living forever with Yeshua and Yahweh, in their very presence, is our reward, our inheritance. We will see Him as He is, face to face, like no one has ever done in all our miserable history. When Yeshua was crucified, the curtain into the Holy of Holies in the Temple was rent top to bottom, revealing the way into Yahweh’s presence for all mankind. In the second coming scenario, the curtain to the heavenly Temple Holy of Holies will be thrown back, so all remaining humans can see Yahweh Himself. But this won’t happen until the end, at the 7th trumpet. Revelation 11:19a, “Then the temple of Yahweh was opened in heaven, and the ark of His covenant was seen in His temple.” You just don’t want to miss this! Very soon you will be able to climb right up onto your Heavenly Father’s lap! He wants us with Him as His children! When will all this happen? When Yeshua receives His Kingdom in His judgment, which includes us, His children, as His inheritance, then you will receive your inheritance, eternal life in an incorruptible body.

 

Notice that Noah had to build himself an ark. The Church must flee into the wilderness. The three Hebrew boys were tossed into the seven-times hotter furnace, before they got to see Yeshua. Yeshua saved them IN the furnace, NOT from the furnace and not before they got thrown into it. The children of Israel had to cross the Red Sea, or they would have been destroyed. Joshua and the boys had to cross the Jordan River, before they could receive the Promised Land. We must go through the tribulation before we receive the ultimate mysterious promise, the Kingdom of Yahweh.

 

The little book of Daniel is open for all to eat. Daniel received the vision of chapter 7 in 577 BCE, the first year of Belshazzar, son of the then insane (7 years insane, by the way) Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar. Daniel 7:18; 21-22; 27, “But the saints of the Most High shall receive the kingdom, and possess the kingdom forever, even forever and ever. . . 21“I was watching; and the same horn was making war against the saints, and prevailing against them, 22until the Ancient of Days came, and a judgment was made in favor of the saints of the Most High, and the time came for the saints to possess the kingdom. . . 27Then the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdoms under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people, the saints of the Most High. His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey Him.”

 

The time is coming to finish the mystery. We believers will receive the Kingdom. Don’t miss it. Daniel 7:25c, “Then the saints shall be given into his (Antichrist’s) hand for a time and times and half a time.” We’re going to get the Kingdom, but it looks like we are NOT going to be raptured, at least during a 3 ½ year period of the tribulation. I believe this 3 ½ years is the last 3 ½ years of a seven year tribulation, mid-trib rapture folks like to believe this is the first half of the seven-year tribulation. I think we have already discovered that we receive the kingdom at the end of the tribulation. Do you think monotheistic Hebrew Daniel got a headache when he saw Yeshua, the Son of Yahweh, being judged in the presence of Yahweh the Father? Hmm. He says He was grieved and troubled. Study Daniel 7 for yourself and settle these things in your own heart. You only get the Kingdom because of who Yeshua is and what He has done for you. 1 Corinthians 6:9-11, “Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of Yahweh? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, 10nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of Yahweh. 11And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Master Yeshua and by the Spirit of our Mighty One.” Galatians 5:19-21, “Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, 20idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, 21envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of Yahweh.” If you have not already turned to Yeshua in repentance and faith, I encourage you to do so immediately. Warning, rough road ahead for a few years until Yeshua returns.

 

Just in time,

The Daily

THE DAILY

 

Romans 12:1-2, “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of Yahweh, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to Yahweh, which is your reasonable service. 2And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of Yahweh.”

 

1 Corinthians 15:31, “I affirm, by the boasting in you which I have in Messiah Yeshua our Master, I die daily.”

 

Galatians 2:17-21, “But if, while we seek to be justified by Messiah, we ourselves also are found sinners, is Messiah therefore a minister of sin? Certainly not! 18For if I build again those things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor. 19For I through the Torah (Yahweh’s instructions) died to the oral traditions of men that I might live to Yahweh. 20I have been crucified with Messiah; it is no longer I who live, but Messiah lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of Yahweh, who loved me and gave Himself for me. 21I do not set aside the grace of Yahweh; for if righteousness comes through the oral traditions of men, then Messiah died in vain.”

 

Acts 3:1, “Now Peter and John went up together to the temple at the hour of prayer, the ninth hour (2 – 3:00 pm).” This is the second oblation offering time, the first happening from 8 – 9:00 am in the morning. The twice-daily oblation offerings are what Daniel was speaking about in Daniel 8:14, “And he said to me, “For two thousand three hundred evening-mornings (the twice-daily oblation offerings); then the sanctuary shall be (cleansing to be) cleansed.” 2,300 / 2-a-day offerings equal 1,150 solar days. These were not offerings for sin or atonement. They were simply offerings to acknowledge Yahweh and His ownership of the people and all of His creation. Over time it became a tradition for Sabbath-keeping devoted Hebrew brethren to go to church twice a day for the oblation offerings, prayer, teaching, and fellowship. This is especially where and when Yeshua taught his growing fellowship of disciples in Solomon’s porch of the Temple. The Apostles carried on this twice-daily prayer time and used it to teach the growing church.

 

Acts 2:15, “For these are not drunk, as you suppose, since it is only the third hour of the day.” Again, this is during the first oblation offering and prayer time from 8 – 9:00 am. This occasion was of course the Feast of Pentecost, when the Holy Spirit fell upon the 120 gathered believers. 120 brethren could not fit in the upper room as so many believe, they were gathered in Solomon’s porch, the area of the Temple where the Nazarene sect of Messianic believers regularly assembled. Since they were in the Temple area, the rushing mighty wind of the Spirit caused many to pay attention to what Yahweh was doing. You know the rest of the story, 3,000 Hebrews were saved that Pentecostal Sunday morning, May 26, 30 CE.

 

What I want you to understand about the daily is that it is the daily work of Yahweh in the Church by His Holy Spirit. It is the work of the Spirit-filled Church. Yahweh, through the example of Yeshua, has expanded the twice-daily of Hebrew tradition into the 24/7 ministry of His Bride, the Church of Yeshua Messiah. Yeshua did much of His ministry on the Sabbath, either in the Temple or in a synagogue, or on the street. Anytime is the work of the Body of Messiah, anytime is the work of the Church, anytime is the daily sacrifice of the true believer, anytime is the daily. Anytime is a good time to worship and serve our Master.

 

In the endtime, Yahweh sets apart a final 1,150 days to finish our work, after which He begins to cleanse His sanctuary, His body, His church, His Temple. Cleansing the sanctuary sounds to me a lot like chastening, disciplining, even judgment of His body, the Church. Ehesians 5:25-27, “Husbands, love your wives, just as Messiah also loved the church and gave Himself for her, 26that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, 27that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish.” A purging is coming to the Body of Christ. In fact, we may already be inside this final 1,150 days, beginning around the Haiti earthquake in January, 2010 CE. Cleansing is not a rapturous experience, but it is a salvation experience. Repent and be clean.

 

Luke 21:34-36, “But take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness, and cares of this life, and that Day come on you unexpectedly. 35For it will come as a snare on all those who dwell on the face of the whole earth. 36Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.” Paul explains in 1 Thessalonians 5:1-10, more of what Yeshua was speaking about, “But concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I should write to you. 2For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of Yahweh so comes as a thief in the night. 3For when they say, “Peace and safety (prosperity)!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape. 4But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. 5You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness. 6Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober. 7For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk are drunk at night. 8But let us who are of the day be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet the hope of salvation. 9For Yahweh did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Master Yeshua Messiah, 10who died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him.” Hebrews 12:25-29, “See that you do not refuse Him who speaks. For if they did not escape who refused Him who spoke on earth, much more shall we not escape if we turn away from Him who speaks from heaven, 26whose voice then shook the earth; but now He has promised, saying, “Yet once more I shake not only the earth, but also heaven.” 27Now this, “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of those things that are being shaken, as of things that are made, that the things which cannot be shaken may remain. 28Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve Yahweh acceptably with reverence and godly fear. 29For our Mighty One is a consuming fire.” 1 Thessalonians 1:8-10, “For from you the word of the Master has sounded forth, not only in Macedonia and Achaia, but also in every place. Your faith toward Yahweh has gone out, so that we do not need to say anything. 9For they themselves declare concerning us what manner of entry we had to you, and how you turned to Yahweh from idols to serve the living and true Mighty One, 10and to wait for His Son from heaven, whom He raised from the dead, even Yeshua who delivers us from the wrath to come.”

 

We are called to escape the wrath of Yahweh, not the sanctifying, cleansing tribulation. Tribulation is our highway to holiness. Seven times hotter is seven years of hot tribulation. See you on the other side of the furnace. Watch, pray, serve, endure to the end.

What’s in a Hot Name?

WHAT’S IN A HOT NAME?

 

Isaiah 30:26-28, “Moreover the light of the moon will be as the light of the sun,

And the light of the sun will be sevenfold,

As the light of seven days,

In the day that Yahweh binds up the bruise of His people

And heals the stroke of their wound.”

 

Does verse 26 sound like solar flares or other solar phenomena? This is another end-time passage concerning the signs in the heavens in the last days. Get your welder’s goggles ready, it’s going to get real bright around this planet. Yeshua’s second coming will be the brightest event in human history, this solar and lunar spectacle will be a part of it.

 

27 Behold, the name of Yahweh comes from afar,

Burning with His anger,

And His burden is heavy;

His lips are full of indignation,

And His tongue like a devouring fire.

28 His breath is like an overflowing stream,

Which reaches up to the neck,

To sift the nations with the sieve of futility;

And there shall be a bridle in the jaws of the people,

Causing them to err.”

 

Matthew 3:2, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand!”

 

Luke 3:16, “John answered, saying to all, “I indeed baptize you with water; but One mightier than I is coming, whose sandal strap I am not worthy to loose. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.”

 

Yeshua stated that John the Baptist came in the spirit of Elijah to prepare the way for His ministry. It is that same spirit of Elijah that compels us to proclaim, REPENT! For the Kingdom of Yahweh is at hand. Yeshua is loosening up the crust of the earth, so get ready for a whole lot more shaking and rocking and rolling on planet earth. Yeshua is now trying to get our attention. He is also beginning to destroy our idols. After that, He destroys those who continue in rebellion against Him. As He destroys planet earth and the plants and animals of His creation, He commands all men everywhere to repent of their sins and turn to Him for forgiveness. He wants you to be in His family as His child, but you must repent of your wicked ways and turn to Him as your Redeemer and Savior.

 

His Name is coming from afar, the Kingdom of Heaven, and it is burning with all of Yahweh’s anger. Just because we live in an age of grace, living with Yahweh’s extended mercy, does not mean that He is not obligated to judge those who do not submit to His authority. Mercy has an appointment in time; it ends on Judgment Day. Yahweh is a person, He has emotions, it ticks Him off that humans continue to rebel against Him and His Torah. The age of mercy is at an end. What’s left is for us to see the other side of Yahweh, the side that has been hidden from man, so we would not be destroyed in an instant. When Yahweh appears, that IS Judgment Day. The brightness of His glorious holy presence simply destroys all unrighteousness and sin. Nothing unholy or sinful survives in Yahweh’s presence. If you are not covered in the blood of Yeshua, Yahweh’s holy sacrificed Lamb, when He returns to earth, you’re toast. You don’t have to believe it, it’s just a matter of factual truth. We can only stand before Him in the righteousness of Yeshua HaMashiach, our Savior. His righteousness is our only holy garment acceptable to our Heavenly Father. All your good deeds are as menstrual rags before His majestic holiness. If you’re a visual person, think bug-zapper. It’s a simplistic picture, but you get the idea.

 

You’ve been watching the Japanese earthquake disaster unfold. Have you ever heard of an earthquake in Arkansas? Folks, we’ve had 800 earthquakes in Arkansas over the last six months alone. Yahweh is about to smash this world, to break men down in humility. All will fall prostrate before Yeshua when He returns. Have you ever wondered why Yeshua will land on the Mt. of Olives instead of on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem? Is it possible that He wants to be invited into Jerusalem as Israel’s King and Redeemer? It will be a vote required of you that has everlasting consequences. Vote righteous. Maybe it would just be better to split the Mt. of Olives in two instead of splitting a possible new third Temple in two? Our coming King does need a throne for a 1,000 years. What would you suggest as a coronation protocol when He arrives? Is anyone in all of Christendom or Judaism really prepared for His return? Will He find any faith left on this dying planet? Just because we’ve never experienced the wrath of Yahweh, doesn’t mean He doesn’t have it and won’t pour it out on sinful men. Many say that since Yeshua shed His blood for us, Yahweh is no longer angry with man. That is a conspiracy theory, not a conspiracy truth. The truth is, Yahweh is not angry with repentant men, but His wrath does still abide on unrepentant sinners. And besides, He does have a score to settle with the devil, as you will recall from Genesis 3:15. Yahweh has not crushed Satan’s head yet, no, not yet. . . but that will happen soon enough. My advice if you wish to avoid obliteration, practice instant face plants with every flash in the sky. More carpet time is always good for the soul. Are you feeling the heat of His Name yet? We are in the seventh day, so look for our universe to soon get a whole lot brighter.

 

Romans 2:1-11, “Therefore you are inexcusable, O man, whoever you are who judge, for in whatever you judge another you condemn yourself; for you who judge practice the same things. 2But we know that the judgment of Yahweh is according to truth against those who practice such things. 3And do you think this, O man, you who judge those practicing such things, and doing the same, that you will escape the judgment of God? 4Or do you despise the riches of His goodness, forbearance, and longsuffering, not knowing that the goodness of Yahweh leads you to repentance? 5But in accordance with your hardness and your impenitent heart you are treasuring up for yourself wrath in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of Yahweh, 6who “will render to each one according to his deeds”: 7eternal life to those who by patient continuance in doing good seek for glory, honor, and immortality; 8but to those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness—indignation and wrath, 9tribulation and anguish, on every soul of man who does evil, of the Jew first and also of the Greek; 10but glory, honor, and peace to everyone who works what is good, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. 11For there is no partiality with Yahweh.” Eternal life versus indignation and wrath, the choice is yours. Vote righteous.

 

Jeremiah 17:14-18, “Heal me, O Yahweh, and I shall be healed;

Save me, and I shall be saved,

For You are my praise.

15 Indeed they say to me,

Where is the word of Yahweh?

Let it come now!”

16 As for me, I have not hurried away from being a shepherd who follows You,

Nor have I desired the woeful day (Rev. 8-11);

You know what came out of my lips;

It was right there before You.

17 Do not be a terror to me;

You are my hope in the day of doom (it’s knocking on our door).

18 Let them be ashamed who persecute me,

But do not let me be put to shame;

Let them be dismayed,

But do not let me be dismayed.

Bring on them the day of doom,

And destroy them with double destruction!

Terrorists currently don’t know what terror is really like, but they will very soon. Yahweh will introduce all terrorists to His terror; they want to rebel against Him, He will terrorize them, He’s not partial, any terrorist will do.

Revelation 18:4-8, “And I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her (Mystery Babylon, the harlot church), my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. 5For her sins have reached to heaven, and Yahweh has remembered her iniquities. 6Render to her just as she rendered to you, and repay her double according to her works; in the cup which she has mixed, mix double for her. 7In the measure that she glorified herself and lived luxuriously, in the same measure give her torment and sorrow; for she says in her heart, ‘I sit as queen, and am no widow, and will not see sorrow.’ 8Therefore her plagues will come in one day—death and mourning and famine. And she will be utterly burned with fire, for strong is Yahweh Almighty who judges her.”

 

Unfortunately, the good new days can’t show up until the bad days of doom and gloom have run their course. Our world must become much worse before it gets much better. Take heart, Yahweh is not out to terrorize His children, only His enemy’s children.

 

Have a nice eternity,

Listen Up

LISTEN UP

 

Isaiah 51, “Listen to Me, you who follow after righteousness,

You who seek Yahweh:

Look to the rock from which you were hewn,

And to the hole of the pit from which you were dug (we are but dust).

2 Look to Abraham your father,

And to Sarah who bore you;

For I called him alone,

And blessed him and increased him.”

3 For Yahweh will comfort Zion,

He will comfort all her waste places;

He will make her wilderness like Eden,

And her desert like the garden of Yahweh;

Joy and gladness will be found in it,

Thanksgiving and the voice of melody.

4Listen to Me, My people;

And give ear to Me, O My nation:

For law will proceed from Me,

And I will make My justice rest

As a light of the peoples.”

 

In John 8:12, Yeshua said He is the light of the world. So, if Yeshua is the light of the world, and Yahweh’s justice is the light of the peoples, does that mean Yeshua = Justice? Justice = Yeshua? Hmm. That sounds like the Yeshua that will re-appear on earth soon. Yahweh’s justice is light. And you thought the end times were all doom and gloom! Ha! When Yeshua brings His justice to this planet over the next few years, the world will be a brighter place! Amazing! Listen up folks, soon the corrupt laws of man will be replaced by the law of love, the law of liberty, the law of grace and forgiveness, the law of the Kingdom of Yahweh. The Torah will flow from Zion again soon. You can bank on that.

 

5 My righteousness (right, equity, prosperity) is near,

My salvation (liberty, deliverance, prosperity) has gone forth,

And My arms will judge the peoples;

The (Mediterranean, including North Africa) coastlands will wait upon Me,

And on My arm they will trust.”

 

Keep praying for the Muslim nations, some will still be saved.

6 Lift up your eyes to the heavens,

And look on the earth beneath.

For the heavens will vanish away like smoke,

The earth will grow old like a garment,

And those who dwell in it will die in like manner;

But My salvation (Yeshua, savior, deliverance, aid, victory, prosperity) will be forever,

And My righteousness (rightness, rectitude, virtue, prosperity) will not be abolished.”

 

Some day soon the heavens and earth will be burned up, like Peter stated in 2 Peter 3:10-13, “But the day of Yahweh will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up. 11Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, 12looking for and hastening the coming of the day of Yahweh, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat? 13Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.” Peter and Isaiah are talking about the same events. The end of time is upon us. Judgment day is here. Yahweh judged Haiti in January, 2010 CE for their idolatry. Yahweh judged Japan for their idolatry in March, 2011 CE. Will the nations wake up? Yahweh is just getting started. These are just the beginnings of sorrows. Yahweh will take us down one person at a time, or one city at a time, or one nation at a time, or one world at a time. No matter the scale of judgment, Yahweh will humble mankind and exalt Yeshua.

 

7Listen to Me, you who know righteousness,

You people in whose heart is My law:

Do not fear the reproach of men,

Nor be afraid of their insults.

8 For the moth will eat them up like a garment,

And the worm will eat them like wool;

But My righteousness will be forever,

And My salvation from generation to generation.”

9 Awake, awake, put on strength,

O arm of Yahweh!

Awake as in the ancient days,

In the generations of old.

Are You not the arm that cut Rahab apart,

And wounded the serpent?”

 

Satan wounded the heel of Yeshua in 30 CE, but Yeshua’s work on the cross is the fatal blow to the devil. Yahweh will soon crush Satan’s head. Those close to the devil during Judgment Day will be crushed along with him. The devil won’t be the only one in the winepress of Yahweh’s wrath. Millions of grape people are setting themselves up for a sad ending.

 

10 Are You not the One who dried up the sea,

The waters of the great deep;

That made the depths of the sea a road

For the redeemed to cross over?

11 So the ransomed of Yahweh shall return,

And come to Zion with singing,

With everlasting joy on their heads.

They shall obtain joy and gladness;

Sorrow and sighing shall flee away.

12 “I, even I, am He who comforts you.

Who are you that you should be afraid

Of a man (antichrist) who will die,

And of the son of a man (false prophet) who will be made like grass?

13 And you forget Yahweh your Maker,

Who stretched out the heavens

And laid the foundations of the earth;

You have feared continually every day

Because of the fury of the oppressor,

When he has prepared to destroy.

And where is the fury of the oppressor?

14 The captive exile hastens, that he may be loosed (in the coming Jubilee),

That he should not die in the pit,

And that his bread should not fail.

15 But I am Yahweh your Mighty One,

Who divided the sea whose waves roared—

Yahweh of hosts is His name.

16 And I have put My words in your mouth;

I have covered you with the shadow of My hand,

That I may plant the heavens,

Lay the foundations of the earth,

And say to Zion, ‘You are My people.’”

 

Verse 16 is fascinating. After Yahweh destroys the heavens and the earth, He is going to plant the new heavens and earth permanently, for all eternity. Zion, Yahweh’s Kingdom, will stand forever. Are you ready for the new planting of Yahweh? The Scriptures say there is a time for everything. Now, Yahweh is in the mode of tearing down, destroying His enemies, burning up the old heavens and earth. After this will be a new season of planting the permanent age-enduring Kingdom of heaven. Isaiah saw it, Peter saw it, John saw it, Daniel saw it, do you see it? This physical world is perishing, passing away, soon to be replaced by the Kingdom of the Rock cut out without hands.

 

17Awake, awake!

Stand up, O Jerusalem,

You who have drunk at the hand of Yahweh

The cup of His fury;

You have drunk the dregs of the cup of trembling,

And drained it out.

18 There is no one to guide her

Among all the sons she has brought forth;

Nor is there any who takes her by the hand

Among all the sons she has brought up.

19 These two things have come to you;

Who will be sorry for you?—

Desolation and destruction, famine and sword—

By whom will I comfort you?

20 Your sons have fainted,

They lie at the head of all the streets,

Like an antelope in a net;

They are full of the fury of Yahweh,

The rebuke of your Mighty One.

21 Therefore please hear this, you afflicted,

And drunk but not with wine (we are called to be drunk with the Holy Spirit).

22 Thus says your Master,

Yahweh and your Mighty One,

Who pleads the cause of His people:

“See, I have taken out of your hand

The cup of trembling,

The dregs of the cup of My fury;

You shall no longer drink it.

23 But I will put it into the hand of those who afflict you,

Who have said to you (your soul),

‘Lie down, that we may walk over you.’

And you have laid your body like the ground,

And as the street, for those who walk over.”

 

Soon, Yahweh will turn the tables on the globalists, the beast system, our oppressors. We were not called to judgment, Yahweh is setting up His enemies for final destruction. Yahweh is going to judge Satan and his followers. The righteous people of Yahweh are secure, safe, delivered. We get the Kingdom in the Holy Spirit. Satan and his minions get fried in the lake of fire. Saints, we have nothing to fear from our Father. We should be rejoicing in Him, in His salvation, and then pray for those who don’t know Him yet. There’s still a little time for a remnant to turn to Him. Every knee will bow before our King, but will they do it willingly or unwillingly, that is the question. Yahweh knows how to bring man low. Ask the Japanese, the New Zealanders, the Chileans, the Icelandics, the Haitians. Ask the former residents of New Orleans. Once He is ready to bring all mankind low, watch out enemies of Yahweh.

 

Jeremiah 16:19-21, “O Yahweh, my strength and my fortress,

My refuge in the day of affliction,

The Gentiles shall come to You

From the ends of the earth and say,

Surely our fathers have inherited lies,

Worthlessness and unprofitable things.

20 Will a man make gods for himself,

Which are not gods?

21 “Therefore behold, I will this once cause them to know,

I will cause them to know

My hand and My might;

And they shall know that My name is Yahweh.”

 

In Exodus 20, Yahweh told us not to bow down to idols, to anyone or anything, other than to Him alone. Idolatry will bring Japan down, it will bring Haiti down, it will bring down the nation of Islam. Idolatry will destroy Gog and Magog, Egypt and Assyria (Germany). You simply cannot worship demons forever, you will be judged by almighty Yahweh. Yahweh is about to destroy His enemy once and for all. Those affiliated with Yahweh’s enemy will be destroyed. Repent, turn to Yeshua, ask for His forgiveness, then serve Him and Him only.

The Time to Come

 

THE TIME TO COME

 

Isaiah 42:14-25, “I have held My peace a long time (about 6,000 years now, we are now stretching His patience to His limit),

I have been still and restrained Myself.

Now I will cry like a woman in labor,

I will pant and gasp at once.

15 I will lay waste the mountains and hills (that’s international, federal, state, and local governments),

And dry up all their vegetation (their fruit will come to nothing);

I will make the rivers coastlands,

And I will dry up the pools (whatever life-giving water they thought they were giving out will evaporate).

16 I will bring the blind by a way they did not know;

I will lead them in paths they have not known.

I will make darkness light before them,

And crooked places straight.

These things I will do for them,

And not forsake them.”

 

Those believers who know they are blind spiritually, Yahweh will enlighten, especially in these last days.

 

17 They shall be turned back,

They shall be greatly ashamed,

Who trust in carved images,

Who say to the molded images,

‘You are our gods.’”

 

Those who trust in man’s creations, including man’s governments, will be greatly disappointed, even ashamed in that day.

 

18 “Hear, you deaf;

And look, you blind, that you may see.

19 Who is blind but My servant,

Or deaf as My messenger whom I send?

Who is blind as he who is perfect,

And blind as Yahweh’s servant?

20 Seeing many things, but you do not observe;

Opening the ears, but he does not hear.””

 

Those believers who think they see are the ones who truly are blind. The self-righteous Pharisee cannot see spiritually or hear from the Holy Spirit. These scriptures are what inspired Yeshua when He sharply rebuked the religious leaders of His day. Woe to those who think they see, hear, and think they know what Yahweh is up to. They will be surprised in these last days. Judaism was the church Yeshua rebuked while He walked in the flesh 2,000 years ago. The Church of Yeshua today needs to hear the same rebuke. Reread Matthew 23 now and take it to heart this time. Self-righteousness is difficult to repent of, but we must humble ourselves and do so now, while it is yet day. The night is coming when no man will repent. Revelation 9:20-21, “But the rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands, that they should not worship demons (like Allah, a demon), and idols of gold, silver, brass, stone, and wood, which can neither see nor hear nor walk. 21And they did not repent of their murders or their (drug) sorceries or their sexual immorality or their thefts.” Revelation 16:9-11, “And men were scorched with great heat, and they blasphemed the name of Yahweh who has power over these plagues; and they did not repent and give Him glory. 10Then the fifth angel poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast, and his kingdom became full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues because of the pain. 11They blasphemed the Mighty One of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and did not repent of their deeds.”

 

Back to Isaiah 42, “21Yahweh is well pleased for His righteousness’ sake;

He will exalt the Torah and make it honorable.

22 But this is a people robbed and plundered;

All of them are snared in holes,

And they are hidden in prison houses;

They are for prey, and no one delivers;

For plunder, and no one says, “Restore!”

Self-righteousness is a blinding prison. This is why we don’t see many broken relationships restored between believers and churches. Groping around blindly in our prison cell, we can’t find the key to freedom, true forgiveness in Yeshua. True forgiveness brings total restoration of relationship. Without true forgiveness by grace through faith in Yeshua, we cannot be restored to fellowship with Yahweh or our fellow man. But with true forgiveness, we can be reconciled to anyone, anywhere, anytime.

 

23 Who among you will give ear to this?

Who will listen and hear for the time to come?

24 Who gave Jacob for plunder, and Israel to the robbers?

Was it not Yahweh,

He against whom we have sinned?

For they would not walk in His ways,

Nor were they obedient to His Torah.

25 Therefore He has poured on him the fury of His anger

And the strength of battle;

It has set him on fire all around,

Yet he did not know;

And it burned him,

Yet he did not take it to heart.”

 

Isaiah 42 is a warning to Yahweh’s people in this time that has come. The ancient nations of Israel were our example of Yahweh’s punishment on His disobedient children. Unfortunately, He will have to punish this generation also, because we still do not take Yahweh’s Torah to heart. In this time of the end and end of time that has come upon the face of the whole earth, Yahweh is declaring war on mankind. It is past time to see and hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches. Yahweh is manipulating the world’s governments and powers and peoples toward the final end-time confrontation between Yahweh, Satan, and man. Who do you think will win? Whose side will you be on? It is your time to choose. Your final vote will be the one that really matters, make it count. Your eternal life depends on it. In John 14:6, Yeshua stated, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” Choose life.

Days of Noah vs. Days of Obama

THE DAYS OF NOAH VERSUS THE DAYS OF OBAMA

 

Matthew 24:32-44, “Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. 33So you also, when you see all these things, know that it is near—at the doors! 34Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place.”

 

Firstly, we want to get the chronological context that Yeshua is talking about. Verse 32 speaks of the fig tree, which is modern Israel. It is commonly believed that the generation that saw modern Israel become a state again will see Yeshua’s Second Coming. That generation is our grandparent’s, parent’s and our generation, today. Within 70 years of 1947-48 CE, we should see Yeshua return to earth to establish His Millennial Kingdom. That is, if Yeshua and Daniel can be believed. I believe their word is truth and sure to come to pass, how about you?

35Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away. 36“But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only.” Yeshua swore an oath that the heavens and the earth will pass by each other (the Planet X Wormwood scenario), but His words will not fly past our brain cells. Let this soak into your head, let these words stick to your spirit, don’t let them pass you by. Yeshua is speaking to us, the last generation disciples, so let His words be heard in your spirit. BEHOLD, He is coming back, and that within one generation of the resurrection of the nation of Israel. Bank on it.

 

 

37But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 38For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, 39and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 40Then two men will be in the field: one will be taken and the other left. 41Two women will be grinding at the mill: one will be taken and the other left.”

 

So, what was happening in Noah’s day, before the Flood came and took them all away? Well, that’s what we’re getting to, but first let me make this statement. No one living today has seen Yahweh judge the whole earth at one time like Noah experienced. Yahweh reduced the world population down to eight souls. He can do that again. It’s not too difficult to imagine in a nuclear Hollywood Obama age. Yeshua said people were just going about their daily routine, eating and drinking. Well, most of us in America eat too many times a day. Most people do not even attempt to eat kosher or healthy in any measurable degree. Many drink way too much of the wrong drinks. To many in Obama’s world, life is just one gluttonous party after another. Obama’s day looks a lot like Noah’s day. Yeshua said folks were marrying and giving in marriage. Is it just a coincidence that the most powerful office in the world today is promoting the homosexual agenda and same-sex marriage? Our age is a total perversion of Noah’s sinful day!! And guess what, the Church of Yeshua is leading the way by hiring homosexuals into positions of authority in His church. Noah’s sinful neighbors had nothing over us!! Yahweh is done winking at our wickedness. Heaven’s barn door has been kicked open and His war horses are on their way. If you can’t hear the thundering hoofbeats, you’d better wake up.

 

Isn’t it fascinating that Yeshua said our abnormally normal sinful routines will continue right up until the time that the righteous enter a place of safety? Noah had an ark, but we know from the book of Revelation that caves and holes in the ground will not protect sinful men today from Yeshua’s judgment. You can run, but you cannot hide from Him. Notice that it is sinners who are taken away, not the saints. Verses 41-42 are confirmed in Matthew 13 also, check it out. The sinful tares are gathered first and thrown into the burning furnace of judgment, then the saints are gathered into the Kingdom barn. Sinners go away, saints stay. How many times must Yeshua say it until we get it? Revelation 14:14-20, “Then I looked, and behold, a white cloud, and on the cloud sat One like the Son of Man, having on His head a golden crown, and in His hand a sharp sickle. 15And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to Him who sat on the cloud, “Thrust in Your sickle and reap, for the time has come for You to reap, for the harvest of the earth is ripe.” 16So He who sat on the cloud thrust in His sickle on the earth, and the earth was reaped. 17Then another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle. 18And another angel came out from the altar, who had power over fire (lightning), and he cried with a loud cry to him who had the sharp sickle, saying, “Thrust in your sharp sickle and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth, for her grapes are fully ripe.” 19So the angel thrust his sickle into the earth and gathered the vine of the earth, and threw it into the great winepress of the wrath of Yahweh. 20And the winepress was trampled outside the city, and blood came out of the winepress, up to the horses’ bridles, for one thousand six hundred furlongs.” Almost 2,000 years ago, Yeshua said the fields were ripe unto the harvest of souls. That salvation of souls harvest has been going on since the Feast of Pentecost in 30 CE. That age is OVER. Noah’s Obama age has arrived. The grape company of sinners is soon to be reaped into the winepress of Yahweh’s wrath. People do not want to believe that Yeshua Yahweh is capable of judging sinners to death. The Old Testament example of Noah’s day is our sampling of Yahweh’s judgment. HE EXTERMINATED ALL HUMANS ON THE PLANET EXCEPT 8. That type of judgment is what we will see at the end of the Obama age.

 

42Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Master is coming. 43But know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into. 44Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.” My wild guess for His coming would be at the first glimpse of the new moon beginning the seventh month and Feast of Trumpets, but that’s just me. Folks, our house has been broken into by Obama and his Muslim terrorist friends. Soon, Muslim Sharia law will be on the law books of a nation dear to you. That is the day America’s tribulation will truly begin. Take a close look at Britain and Europe, they are already bowing down to that big fat demon Allah. Muslims only understand one thing, force infidels to convert to Islam or kill them. Maybe it’s time we learned our missionary skills from them and turn the tables on Allah and his evil horde. There is hope, my friends, the tenth plague was the destruction of the firstborn, the Ismaelites, and the Exodus was our Old Testament example of the deliverance of Yahweh’s people. Power to the tenth plague! Let this soak into your spirit, Israel, we, the people of Yahweh, will not know peace on earth until the firstborn are taken away. Reread the Exodus story. Again, the sinner firstborn Ishmaelites were judged to death first, then Yahweh delivered His people. It’s the biblical pattern that true Israelites are familiar with and the one pattern Yeshua taught.

 

Like I said in my last post, Yeshua showed me that if, or since, we are in the last 7 weeks of Daniel’s 70 Feast of Weeks, like a template laid over the nationhood of modern Israel, we are ALREADY PAST THE PRE-TRIBULATION RAPTURE DATE!! Sorry, folks, He said it, I just laughed myself to sleep over it. False teaching is always exposed to the light of Yeshua’s word. If Yeshua doesn’t show up in 2016 or 2017 CE, it’s no skin off my doctrine; it’s His Book, He is the One Who has to back up His Word, not me. I’ll just watch, and pray, and prepare another spreadsheet. Noah’s day is the pattern for Obama’s day. Judgment fell upon earth in Noah’s day, and I believe judgment will fall upon earth in Obama’s day, though Obama doesn’t stand a chance of reaching 600 years of age. Satan may destroy the power or strength of Yahweh’s people in the last days, but at least we have the Ark, and Yahweh does the sealing of the saints into the Ark, just like He sealed Noah into his ark. So relax and trust Him.
