Let My Father’s Word Go – Announcing the Unlocked Literal Bible – ULLB.bblx module for e-Sword Bible program

Let My Father’s Word Go

Psalm 138:2I will worship toward Your holy sanctuary, and give thanks to Your name for Your mercy, and for Your truth; for You have magnified Your Word above all Your name.”

Psalm 56:10In the Divine Ones I will praise the Word; in Yahweh I will praise the Word.”

John 1:1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with Yahweh, and the Word was Yahweh.”

1 Peter 1:22-25, “Having purified your souls in the obedience of the truth through the Spirit to sincere brotherly love, love one another fervently out of a pure heart, 23being regenerated, not by corruptible seed, but incorruptible, through the living Word of Yahweh, which abides forever. 24Because “All flesh is as grass, and all the glory of men as the flower of grass; the grass was dried, and its flower fell out, 25but the Word of Yahweh remains forever.” And this is the very Word that was announced to you.”

We know Yeshua is the living Word of Yahweh, and that the Word of Yahweh just may be the most important thing in all existence. So it is with great joy, pleasure, humility and honor that I make this announcement today. For the last few months I’ve been working hundreds of hours on building a Bible module to be used in the FREE e-Sword Bible program called the Unlocked Literal Bible, which original work is available at www.unfoldingword.org. The Unlocked Literal Bible appears to be a solid accurate modern translation of the Holy Scriptures. I finished the ULLB.bblx, version 9, e-Sword Bible module on Mother’s Day, May 14, 2017. How appropriate, my Mom is the person who instilled a love of Yahweh’s word deep in my heart. As I remember, she was my first Sunday School teacher.

Have you ever wanted a Bible in a word processing file format that you could just use to spell correct, or correct a poorly translated verse, or type in profuse notes or change the Sacred Name to what you believe it should be? Well, I have, so over the last few decades, I’ve been searching for an electronic version of the Bible that was non-copyrighted, FREE to use, copy, print, change, and publish, etc. In fact, we are commanded as kings under Yeshua to make our own copy of His Word in Deuteronomy 17:18,And it shall be, when he sits on the throne of his kingdom, he shall write for himself a copy of this Torah in a book, from before the priests, the Levites.” The Unlocked Literal Bible is one such Bible, released under the Creative Commons Share Alike 4.0 International Public License. You can review the license at: unfoldingWord.org/license or at: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0

I recently uploaded the Unlocked Literal Bible ULLB.bblx, version 9, Bible module to www.biblesupport.com, so you may download it for use in the FREE e-Sword Bible program, now available for PC, Mac, ipad, and iphone. E-Sword also works on Linux with the Wine emulator. On biblesupport.com search Unlocked Literal Bible to download today. The unfoldingword.org logo is also uploaded to biblesupport.com as a ULLB.mapx graphics file. Please download and install both the ULLB.bblx (Bible module) and the ULLB.mapx graphics (logo) file in respect for all the hard work done by the brothers and sisters at unfoldingword.org. They asked that the unfoldingword logo remain with the original unchanged Unlocked Literal Bible. If you change the original content, just remove their logo. If you can’t download the ULLB Bible or logo file from www.biblesupport.com, just ask me at anapto2 at gmail dot com, and I’ll email them to you, or they may just be attached to this announcement email.

The FREE e-Sword Bible program is available for download at www.e-sword.net. After installing the e-Sword Bible program itself, installing e-Sword modules is easier if you first download and install the Module Installer, also available at www.biblesupport.com. All you have to do after downloading a file is double click the module file and it will automatically be installed in e-Sword for you. If the new module doesn’t show up immediately in e-Sword, click on Options/Resource and click the checkbox next to the modules you want to see in e-Sword. You can always install modules manually by copying the files to the e-sword folder under Program Files x86. I have no idea how to install e-sword modules on Macs, ipads, or iphones. Look for Apple support from Rick Meyers at e-sword.net. There are dozens of e-Sword modules available for download from right inside the e-Sword program, some free, some paid. There are thousands of FREE modules available from www.biblesupport.com . Also, there are paid e-Sword modules available at http://estudysource.com/platform/site/homepage/index.aspx

For the brave souls that may want to build their own e-Sword version of the Unlocked Literal Bible, I have the .rtf file for the e-Sword ToolTip Tool NT program that creates the module(s) for e-Sword. Just ask me for the Tooltip NT .rtf file for the ULLB. The ToolTip Tool NT program is also available on www.biblesupport.com.

For your information and perusal, the www.unfoldingword.org folks also have an Unlocked Dynamic Bible, which to me looks more like an amplified version, more texty, verbose, or robust. Download the .pdf file from their website and see what you think.

If you change the original work, just give the proper attribution as shown on their website, and remove their logo.

If you wish to join the translation team, read the requirements on the https://unfoldingword.org/guidelines/ website. Need or want to learn about translating Yahweh’s word? They have an academy: https://unfoldingword.org/academy/

Disciple of Yeshua, Jesus Christ, there is no more excuse for not digging in and feasting on Yahweh’s glorious, eternal, living Word!! Luke 10:26,And He said to him, What has been written in the Torah? How do you read it?”

Partners and donors, if you would like to support this Bible publishing effort, please send your check or Money Order to Fill My Cup Ministries, International, LLC, P.O.

NUGGETS OF FIRE PROOF INVESTMENTS – PART 10

NUGGETS OF FIRE PROOF INVESTMENTS

PART 10

Philippians 4:15 “And you know, too, Philippians, that in the beginning of the gospel, when I went out from Macedonia, not one Congregation shared with me in the matter of giving and receiving, except you only. 16 Because even at Thessalonica you sent more than once to meet my needs. 17 I do not say this because I seek a gift, but I seek the fruits of the gospel multiplying to you. 18 But I have all things and more than enough; I have been filled, receiving from Epaphroditus the things from you, and it was welcomed as a fragrant perfume, an acceptable sacrifice, pleasing to Yahweh.”

Verse 17 in the King James reads, “Not because I desire a gift: but I desire fruit that may abound to your account.

Years ago, when I first read verse 17, it blew my mind to discover that Yahweh keeps books on all humans! Did you think mankind invented the accounting industry? No, my friends, Yahweh is the Master Accountant. Yahweh invented accounting. He keeps a set of books on every one of us. His angels keep all kinds of records on all of us. There are no secrets in the Kingdom of Yahweh.

Up until just a few years ago, I only knew of one way to account for my financial and other gifts into Yahweh’s Kingdom. I was like everyone else, I wrote off my gifts, donations, and charitable contributions as an expense, literally posting my dollar amounts to an expense account in my personal finance software. Some believers even consider their donations into Yahweh’s Kingdom as tax-deductible gifts and write them off on their taxes. Yahweh showed me many years ago that this is incorrect thinking, worldly thinking, not Godly thinking.

Our contributions into Yahweh’s Kingdom should be reckoned as investments, FIRE PROOF INVESTMENTS, not as expenses. Whether or not you use personal finance software, or an app, or just a good old fashioned pencil and paper financial system, you should create a charitable contributions ASSET account. Your donations to your church and other ministries is an investment in Yahweh’s eternal Kingdom. If you reckon your contributions as expenses instead of as investments, your kingdom Reward Of Inheritance (Col. 3:24) for that giving goes away from your life every year when you clear your expense accounts. Today, I encourage you to set up a charitable contributions investment asset account on your books of account. If you are not comfortable doing that yourself, ask your accounting professional, or tax person to help you. Just tell them you want to move your charitable giving from your P&L or Income Statement to your Balance Sheet. What a great opportunity to teach your accountant about Yahweh’s Kingdom ways! Yahweh’s Kingdom is permanent. Posting your giving to a permanent Kingdom Fire Proof Investment account is the way to give permanence to your giving. It will help you see your giving move from the temporal realm into the eternal spiritual realm of Yahweh’s Kingdom, where it multiplies into your future.

But guess what? Even if you give all your wealth into the Kingdom, and even if you win millions of souls for Yeshua, Yahweh still owes you nothing in return, but Yeshua is going to reward you. Mat 16:24-27 “Then Yeshua said to His disciples, If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and let him bear his execution stake, and let him follow Me. 25 For whoever may desire to save his life will lose it. But whoever may lose his life for My sake will find it. 26 For what will a man be benefited if he should gain the whole world, but forfeits his soul? Or what will a man give as an exchange for his soul? 27 For it is necessary for the Son of man to come in the glory of his Father. And then with his holy angels he will reward each man according to his work.” Rev 22:12 “And behold, I am coming soon, and My reward is with Me, to give to each according to his work.”

I do not say this because I seek a gift, but I seek the fruits of the gospel multiplying to you. Not because I desire a gift: but I desire fruit that may abound to your account.

NUGGETS OF FIRE PROOF INVESTMENTS – PART 9

PART 9

Malachi 3:10-12 “Bring all the tithe into the storehouse, so that there may be food in My Temple. And test Me now with this, says Yahweh of Hosts, whether I will not open the windows of the heavens for you and pour out a blessing until there is no sufficiency of room to store it. 11And I will rebuke the devourer for you, and he shall not destroy the fruit of your ground against you; nor shall your vine miscarry against you in the field, says Yahweh of Hosts. 12And all nations shall call you blessed, for you shall be a delightful land, says Yahweh of Hosts.”

The biblical tithe is ten percent (10%). The tithe was a statute for the landowner, farmer, rancher, or business owner. The lowly wage earner was never required to pay a tithe. A wage earner makes no profit, so has no increase to tithe upon. So let’s say, as some believe and teach, the Law was done away with. If that is true, then the tithe was also done away with. Do the prosperity preachers ever consider that? But praise Yah, the Law was not, is not, and never will be done away with. If you study the tithe in the Old Testament, you will discover that tithing was around long before the Law was given at Mt. Sinai. Tithing is an eternal precept of Yahweh, not just a law of Moses.

Today, Yeshua wants us to give as much as we want to give. No limits. 2 Cor 9:6-15, “But remember this: the one sowing sparingly will also reap sparingly, and the one sowing generously will also reap generously. 7 Each one as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or out of necessity, for Yahweh loves a cheerful giver. 8 And Yahweh is able to make all grace to abound toward you, that in everything, always having all self sufficiency, you may abound to every good work; 9 even as it has been written, “He has distributed liberally, He has given to the poor, His righteousness abides forever.” 10 Now He that supplies seed to the Sower and bread for eating, may He supply and multiply your seed and increase the fruits of your righteousness, 11 in everything you being enriched to all sincerity, which works out thanksgiving to Yahweh through us. 12 Because the ministry of this service is not only making up the things lacking of the saints, but also multiplying through many thanks-givings to Yahweh, 13 through the proof of this charitable service, they glorifying Yahweh by your freely expressed submission to the gospel of Messiah, and through your generosity you have become partakers with them and with all men; 14 and they offer prayer on your behalf with greater love, because of the overflowing grace of Yahweh which is on you. 15 But thanks be to Yahweh for His unspeakable free gift.”

So, let’s blow the lid off that 10% limitation tithe. We owe Yeshua everything, 110% at least!! We love Him with every fiber of our being, so let’s give a token back to Him through a worthy ministry. He loved us enough to die for us, so the least we can do is die to our selfish self and give as free people should! Bless His holy Name forever! Partner with us, folks. We’re going forward and upward in the Kingdom, and we would love to go with you into all the world. Let’s give our all for Yeshua! Freely you have received, freely give. Mat 10:8b.

Psa 24:1, “The earth belongs to Yahweh, and the fullness of it; the world, and those who live in it.”

This is another one of those foundational principles in the realm of finance. Ownership versus Stewardship. Yahweh is the owner, we are just stewards, or asset managers. Stewardship is a faithfulness issue. We must be faithful with what our Master entrusts to our hands.

Yeshua taught this in the parable of the ten minas: Luk 19:11-27, “But as they were hearing these things, He spoke, adding a parable, because He was near to Jerusalem, and they thought that the kingdom of Yahweh was immediately to be revealed. 12Then He said: A certain well-born man went to a distant country to receive a kingdom for himself, and to return. 13And calling ten of his slaves, he gave to them ten minas and said to them, Trade and keep busy until I come. 14But the citizens of his city hated him and sent ambassadors after him. And they were saying, “We do not want this man to rule over us.” 15And it happened as he returned, having received the kingdom, he even said for those servants to be called to him, those to whom he gave the silver, that he might know what each had gained by trading. 16And the first came, saying, Master, your mina has gained ten minas. 17And he said to him, Well done, good slave! Because you were faithful in a least thing, have authority over ten cities. 18And the second came, saying, Master, your mina has made five minas. 19And he said to this one also, And you be over five cities. 20And another came, saying, Master, behold your mina which I have stored up in a facecloth. 21For I feared you, because you are a harsh man, taking what you did not lay down, and reaping what you did not sow. 22But he said to him, I will judge you out of your own mouth, wicked slave. You knew that I am a harsh man, taking what I did not lay down, and reaping what I did not sow. 23And why did you not give my silver on the bank table? And coming, I might have exacted it with interest. 24And to those standing by he said, Take the mina from him, and give it to him who has ten minas. 25And they said to him, Master, he has ten minas. 26For I say to you, To everyone who has, it will be given. And from the one who does not have, even what he has will be taken from him. 27But to those my enemies who did not desire that I rule over them, bring them and execute them before me!”

Gal 6:6-8, “But let the one being taught in the Word, share with the one teaching, in all good things. 7Do not be deceived, Yahweh is not mocked. For whatever a man may sow, that he also will reap. 8For the one sowing to his flesh will reap corruption of the flesh. But the one sowing to the Spirit will reap everlasting life from the Spirit.”

Earlier we touched briefly on transferring our wealth into our spiritual future. How do we do that? Paul shows us here that we do this by sowing to the Spirit. Sowing into good ministries, and by taking care of the poor, homeless, lame, orphan, and widows.

But, we don’t just sow money into our spiritual future, we also sow the Word with the intention that it will bear fruit for eternal life to the hearer and to us. Matthew 13:18-23, “But you hear the parable of the seed, 19 everyone hearing the Word of the kingdom, and not understanding, then the evil one comes and catches away that which was sown in his heart. This is that sown by the roadside. 20 And that sown on the stony places is this, the one hearing the Word, and immediately receiving it with joy, 21 But he has no root in him but is temporal. And when trouble or persecution comes, he is quickly offended because of the word. 22 And that sown into the thorn bushes is this the one hearing the Word, and the cares of this world, and the deceit of riches, choke the Word, and it becomes unfruitful. 23 But that sown on the good ground is this the one hearing the Word, and understanding it, who indeed bears and yields fruit, one truly a hundredfold, and one sixty, and one thirty.

References: John 4:34-38; 2 Cor. 9:6-11

Luke 6:38, “Give and it will be given to you in good measure and pressed down and abundant it will pour into your robe in that measure. For the measure with which you measure, it will be measured to you.”

This Scripture shows us that giving is based on percentages, the higher the percentage given, the greater your reward in the Kingdom.

Yeshua demonstrated this principle with that poor widow, Mark 12:41-44, “And sitting down opposite the treasury, Yeshua watched how the crowd threw copper coins into the treasury. And many rich ones threw in much. 42And coming, one poor widow threw in two lepta (which is a kodrantes). 43And having called His disciples near, He said to them, Truly I say to you that this poor widow has thrown in more than all of those casting into the treasury. 44For all of them gave from their abundance, but this one cast in from her poverty. She had cast in everything that she had, all her goods!” Yeshua praised this woman for giving 100% of her wealth. Can you imagine her reward in the Kingdom? What if the wealthier people gave 1% or even 10% of their wealth? Their reward in the Kingdom of Yahweh would be great!!

MILLENNIAL REIGN OF YESHUA – Viewer Questions Answered

MILLENNIAL REIGN OF YESHUA

More Viewer Questions Answered

Welcome folks to my 2nd youtube broadcast. I see that our viewers have many questions about the end times. The endtimes are one of Yahweh’s mysteries, and I don’t begin to claim to understand very much of it. I should have clarified further that when I use years such as 6001 or 7001, those numbers are purely for illustration purposes. For example, 7001 – 6001 = 1,000 years millennial reign. We are not to get hung up on dates, times, days, or years, but we are looking to understand the seasons. We are in the end time season. Yeshua should actually return in the creation year 6000, since it will be the 120th Jubilee from Creation. But the exact date or year of His return is the Father’s choice.

Now, let’s try to answer a few more viewer questions.

1 – “So, I’m a little confused when your husband (Gene) says, “so “we” are going to see that.” If we are now in the year 5777 and Yeshua returns in 6000, isn’t that about 300 years? Our physical bodies would be dead by then, although our spiritual bodies would live on… So is he (your husband Gene) saying that “we”… meaning our childrens’ childrens’ children as in our great great grandchildren?” END OF QUESTION

Again, in my most humble opinion, since we have already entered into everlasting life, whether or not we experience the end times in a physical state, or only in a spiritual state, or physically, then die in the Great Tribulation, we will see all events from now on into eternity future. We will either see the end times unfold with physical eyes, or with spiritual eyes, or physical then spiritual, but we will see all the exciting prophecies fulfilled. Another way to express this would be to say that all the Kingdom witnesses will see all Yahweh’s Bible prophecies fulfilled.

The year 5777 is the Jewish calendar year, which is a calculated year, and has nothing to do with Yahweh’s creation calendar. Many men have tried to pinpoint what year B.C. was the creation year. I don’t believe anyone really knows, even though men can come up with some pretty impressive calculations. If this year is 5777 Jewish calendar, then they must believe that the creation year was 3761 B.C. (year 1 on the Jewish calendar). But these kinds of assumptions are just that, men’s best guess assumptions. Most Bible scholars believe the creation year was 200-400 years before 3761 B.C., something like 4000 B.C. or earlier.

As a side note, since 2009 AD, I’ve invested hundreds of hours building biblical chronology spreadsheets. What an incredible learning experience. I am not a Bible scholar, and I don’t believe any one of my spreadsheets is suitable for prime time, but I use them for personal study, and to check the claims of men. As I learned back in my accounting career, figures never lie, but liars figure, so I use my sheets to check the calculations of men. My sheets are built on the shoulders of some of the greatest chronology scholars in Christendom.

May I indulge for a moment? May I tell you how and when Yahweh hooked me on biblical chronology? I was plugging along in my Christian walk when one day in the spring of 2009, I began reading Ezekiel 1:1, “And it happened in the thirtieth year, in the fourth month, in the fifth of the month, as I was among the captives by the river Chebar, the heavens were opened, and I saw visions of Yahweh.” As I read that phrase, “in the thirtieth year” the Holy Spirit just exploded the truth to my spirit that Ezekiel was telling us that he was in the 30th year of the Jubilee Cycle! In that instant, I was hooked on sacred Bible chronology and began building chronology spreadsheets. I currently have 19 of these spreadsheets, with about 6,000 lines each, and up to 40 columns wide. Friends, that’s at least 5 feet wide by at least 60 feet long, if you were to print one out, and that’s a short estimate. I haven’t put much time into the sheets lately, because my brain doesn’t want to focus like it used to. But that’s another story. Ok, back to our viewers questions. . .

2 – “Does he (me, Gene) believe in a 7 or 3 1/2 yr. Tribulation period?” The Bible only reveals a 3 ½ year Great Tribulation period. We find that in the texts describing 42 months (Rev 11:2, 13:5), 1260 days (Rev. 12:6), 1290 days (Dan. 12:11), and 1335 days (Dan. 12:12), and in the time, times, and half a time passages (Dan. 12:7; Rev 12:14). Daniel’s 2300 days (Dan. 8:14) may reveal a 7 year general tribulation period, but notice Daniel mentions 2300 evening mornings (2 words in the Hebrew), which could be translated as 1150 days, again closer to a 3 ½ year time period. I’ve discussed these periods of time in several of my blogs at https://ourdailydrink.wordpress.com/ . Speaking of which, my notes to these video teachings will be available on my blog also.

3 – “Where does he (Gene) think we are on Yahweh’s timeline?” I believe we are very close to the end of human history as we know it. Yeshua should return on or before 2030 AD. It’s not so much knowing a date, or day and time, or a point on a timeline, but we’re looking for events to happen. We are expecting a war with Iran, the Daniel 8 war, to break out at any moment. Also, the Psalm 83 war, or the Ezekiel 39 war. I am amazed at the world’s and Yahweh’s restraint. Don’t watch the clock, look for prophetic events to occur. If America, and Americans, do not repent, expect to see America wiped off the map, not Israel. Israel’s land may get divided according to prophecy (Joel 3:2), but Israel is not going away, ever. World War III is already upon us, as it is being fought in cyberspace right now, but will become a shooting war soon. The Wormwood disaster should occur soon, see Revelation 8:10-11. And please do not pray against any of these things, because we want Yeshua to return to earth, so bring all this stuff on Yahweh!!

4 – “Does he (Gene) believe most saints will be martyred in the Great Tribulation?” Yes. Dead or alive, we are with Yeshua, and will see all the Great Tribulation events occur, including the return of our King, Yeshua HaMashiach, by rapture or resurrection!!

If you would like to learn more about what events to look for in the near future, may I recommend Tim McHyde’s website: https://escapeallthesethings.com/ He has a great book for sale.

If you would like to watch an excellent video series on the Book of Revelation, search youtube for Steven Anderson’s 22 videos on Revelation. Both Mr. McHyde and Mr. Anderson have great charts about the end time. Also, Irvin Baxter at Endtime Ministries has a lot of knowledge on the endtimes.

If you are interested in sacred biblical chronology and would like one of my spreadsheets to look at or study with, just ask, and I’ll email one to you. Marner and I are not professional e-book publishers, but Marner has a couple e-books, which you are welcome to request. My first e-book is titled, “Sacred Chronology” that goes with one of my spreadsheets. My second e-book is titled, “Yeshua Advent 2.0”, which you are welcome to request. It is basically a biblical response to the pre-trib rapture theory. This e-book is in .epub , .mobi , .pdf ,or .doc format at the moment. Soon, I may try converting it into an e-Sword .topx module, so you can just plug it into your e-Sword Bible program. I highly recommend you get your hands on e-Sword for PC, Mac, or iPad. I have dozens of e-Sword modules that I could recommend to you. Download e-Sword at http://www.e-sword.net/ You can download additional Bibles and other resources from right inside of the e-Sword program, or you can purchase modules at: http://estudysource.com/platform/site/homepage/index.aspx

You can download FREE e-Sword modules at: http://www.biblesupport.com/

e-Sword is the simplest to use Bible program, in my humble opinion, as well as the least expensive to get started with.

Shalom, and I hope to see you in the rapture/resurrection soon and very soon!!

Millennial Reign of Messiah Yeshua

The Millennial Reign of Messiah Yeshua

This is a great, but short study. This will not be an all inclusive study. We will attempt to answer a few questions as we look into this period in history. First let’s turn to the Book of Revelation, Chapter 20. Verses 1-6 occur approximately in the year 6001, the Devil, or Satan, is bound for 1,000 years. Rev 20:1-6 “And I saw an angel coming down out of Heaven, having the key of the abyss, and a great chain in his hand. 2 And he laid hold of the dragon, the old serpent who is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, 3 and threw him into the abyss, and shut him up, and put a seal over him, that he should not still lead astray the nations, until the thousand years are fulfilled. And after these things, he must be set loose a little time. 4 And I saw thrones, and they sat on them. And judgment was given to them, and the souls of the ones having been beheaded because of the witness of Yeshua, and because of the Word of Yahweh, and who had not worshiped the beast nor its image, and had not received the mark on their forehead and on their hand. And they lived and reigned with Messiah a thousand years. 5 This is the first resurrection. 6 Blessed and holy is the one having part in the first resurrection. The second death has no authority over these, but they will be priests of Yahweh and of His Messiah, and will reign with Him a thousand years.” 6001

Not much is known about this 1,000 year period, but we’ll try to find a few things mentioned in the Bible. One thing we know about this period of time is that Yeshua will rule the earth with a Rod of Iron. See Ps 2:9; Rev. 11:15; Rev. 12:5; Rev. 19:15. That means the rule of Iron Law. What Iron Law? The Torah! The Sabbath and the Feasts of Yahweh will be the Law upon the whole earth. Multiplied millions of human laws will be done away with, and we will live by the 613 laws found in the Torah/Tanakh. We will also see the restoration of Israel, Amos 9:11-15.

7001

Now let’s move forward 1,000 years and see what happens in the year approximately 7001. Rev 20:7-15, “And whenever the thousand years are completed, Satan will be set loose out of his prison,

Rev 20:8 and he will go to deceive the nations in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to assemble them to war (I believe this is the Ezekiel 38 war), whose number is as the sand of the sea. 9 And they went up over the breadth of the land and encircled the camp of the saints, and the beloved city. And fire from Yahweh came down out of Heaven and consumed them. 10 And the Devil leading them astray was thrown into the Lake of Fire and Brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet were. And they were tormented day and night for ages to ages. 11 And I saw a Great White Throne, and the One sitting on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled; and a place was not found for them. 12 And I saw the dead, the small and the great, standing before Yahweh. And books were opened. And another Book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged out of the things written in the books, according to their works. 13 And the sea gave up the dead in it. And death and the grave gave up the dead in them. And they were each judged according to their works.

14 And death and the grave were thrown into the Lake of Fire. This is the second death. 15 And if anyone was not found having been written in the Book of Life, he was thrown into the Lake of Fire.”

Do we come instantly back with Yeshua after the rapture/resurrection? I believe there may be a week, or possible 3 weeks, with Yeshua, for a wedding feast during the month of Tishri, before returning to earth to reign, but we are coming back to earth: Rev 5:10 and made them kings and priests to our Divine One; and they shall reign on the earth. We saw above in Rev. 20:4-5 that we reign with Him for 1,000 years. Here we see that it is on earth, not in heaven.

Do we go to heaven? Maybe for 1-3 weeks to include a marriage supper and wedding feast, during the Feast of Tabernacles. Rev 19:7-9, “Let us rejoice and let us exult, and we will give glory to Him, because the marriage of the Lamb came, and His wife prepared herself. 8 And it was given to her that she be clothed in fine linen, pure and bright; for the fine linen is the righteousness of the saints. 9 And he said to me, Write: Blessed are the ones having been called to the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he said to me, These Words of Yahweh are true.” The Feast of Tabernacles rehearses this future marriage supper and wedding, but it won’t last more than a week, we return to earth with Yeshua. Rev 19:14, “And the armies in Heaven followed Him on white horses, being dressed in fine linen, white and pure.” Notice the direction of travel, from Heaven to earth.

When are the others judged and taken away? When Yeshua returns to earth, Matthew 25:31-46; Daniel 7:13ff; Daniel 2:44-45

What happens to the unsaved at the rapture/resurrection? Most die in Yahweh’s wrath. Isa 63:1-6; Rev. 19:11-21; Obadiah 1:15-21

Second death White Throne judgment is when? Approximately 7001. Rev. 20:11-15.

Will the unsaved be alive during the millennial reign? Yes. See Zechariah 14.

When is Gog and Magaog war? There are two Gog Magog wars, in my humble opinion. The Ezekiel 39 war occurs approximately 6001, and the Ezekiel 38 war occurs approximately 7001. You can find studies related to this on the internet.

MILLENNIAL KINGDOM – A Scriptural Snapshot

THE MILLENNIAL KINGDOM

A scriptural snapshot of your near future

Below is a short, but High Definition, photograph of the future Millennial Kingdom on earth of Yeshua HaMashiach, King of kings, and Lord of lords. Take your smartphone self-portrait today, one that you would be happy to post on Facebook, and place it into the photo album below, wherever you see yourself fitting into the near future of earth. The below photo album is a family album, Yahweh’s family, Yeshua’s Kingdom on earth. Hebrews 3:6 (NKJV) “but Messiah as a Son over His own [family] house, whose house we are if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm to the end.” If your self-portrait does not fit into this family album, you may want to take a serious look at your spiritual state of being, now, today, this minute. You have time to repent of your sinful self, until you die, or until Yeshua returns, whichever comes first. Turn to Yeshua today for the salvation of your soul.

1 – There will be unbelieving survivors remaining on the earth, per Zechariah 14:16 (NKJV) “And it shall come to pass that everyone who is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall go up from year to year to worship the King, Yahweh of hosts, and to keep the Feast of Tabernacles.”

2 – All nations will come to worship Yeshua, per Zephaniah 2:11 (NKJV) “Yahweh will be awesome to them, for He will reduce to nothing all the mighty ones of the earth; people shall worship Him, each one from his place, indeed all the shores of the nations.” Isaiah 66:23 (NKJV) “And it shall come to pass that from one New Moon to another, and from one Sabbath to another, all flesh shall come to worship before Me,” says Yahweh.” Zechariah 14:16 (NKJV) “And it shall come to pass that everyone who is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall go up from year to year to worship the King, Yahweh of hosts, and to keep the Feast of Tabernacles.” Micah 4:1-4 (NKJV) Now it shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of Yahweh’s house shall be established on the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and peoples shall flow to it. 2Many nations shall come and say, “Come, and let us go up to the mountain of Yahweh, to the house of the Divine One of Jacob; He will teach us His ways, and we shall walk in His paths.” For out of Zion the Torah shall go forth, and the word of Yahweh from Jerusalem. 3He shall judge between many peoples, and rebuke strong nations afar off; they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore. 4But everyone shall sit under his vine and under his fig tree, and no one shall make them afraid; for the mouth of Yahweh of hosts has spoken.”

3 – Yeshua will unite both houses of Israel in the land and physically rule over all nations from Jerusalem, per Ezekiel 37:15-28 (NKJV) “Again the word of Yahweh came to me, saying, 16“As for you, son of man, take a stick for yourself and write on it: ‘For Judah and for the children of Israel, his companions.’ Then take another stick and write on it, ‘For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim, and for all the house of Israel, his companions.’ 17Then join them one to another for yourself into one stick, and they will become one in your hand. 18“And when the children of your people speak to you, saying, ‘Will you not show us what you mean by these?’– 19say to them, ‘Thus says Sovereign Yahweh: “Surely I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel, his companions; and I will join them with it, with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they will be one in My hand.” ‘ 20And the sticks on which you write will be in your hand before their eyes. 21Then say to them, ‘Thus says Sovereign Yahweh: “Surely I will take the children of Israel from among the nations, wherever they have gone, and will gather them from every side and bring them into their own land; 22and I will make them one nation in the land, on the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king [Yeshua] over them all; they shall no longer be two nations, nor shall they ever be divided into two kingdoms again. 23They shall not defile themselves anymore with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions; but I will deliver them from all their dwelling places in which they have sinned, and will cleanse them. Then they shall be My people, and I will be their Divine One. 24“David My servant shall be king over them, and they shall all have one shepherd; they shall also walk in My judgments and observe My statutes, and do them. 25Then they shall dwell in the land that I have given to Jacob My servant, where your fathers dwelt; and they shall dwell there, they, their children, and their children’s children, forever; and My servant David shall be their prince forever. 26Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them, and it shall be an everlasting covenant with them; I will establish them and multiply them, and I will set My sanctuary in their midst forevermore. 27My tabernacle also shall be with them; indeed I will be their Divine One, and they shall be My people. 28The nations also will know that I, Yahweh, sanctify Israel, when My sanctuary is in their midst forevermore.”‘”” Zechariah 2:10-12 (NKJV) “”Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion! For behold, I [Yeshua] am coming and I will dwell in your midst,” says Yahweh. 11Many nations shall be joined to Yahweh in that day, and they shall become My people. And I will dwell in your midst. Then you will know that Yahweh of hosts has sent Me [Yeshua] to you. 12And Yahweh will take possession of Judah as His inheritance in the Holy Land, and will again choose Jerusalem.” Ezekiel 43:5-7 (NKJV) “The Spirit lifted me up and brought me into the inner court; and behold, the glory of Yahweh filled the temple. 6Then I heard Him speaking to me from the temple, while a man stood beside me. 7And He said to me, “Son of man, this is the place of My throne and the place of the soles of My feet, where I will dwell in the midst of the children of Israel forever. No more shall the house of Israel defile My holy name, they nor their kings [or elected officials], by their harlotry [Sunday churchianity] or with the carcasses of their kings on their high places [Capitol Hill, state legislatures, Knesset]. Zechariah 8:3 (NKJV) “Thus says Yahweh: I [Yeshua] will return to Zion, and dwell in the midst of Jerusalem. Jerusalem shall be called the City of Truth, the Mountain of Yahweh of hosts, the Holy Mountain.’”

Isaiah 9:6-7 (NKJV) “For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His [Yeshua’s] shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Almighty Divine One, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. 7Of the increase of His [Yeshua’s] government and peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, to order it and establish it with judgment and justice from that time forward, even forever. The zeal of Yahweh of hosts will perform this.”

4 – It will be mandatory for all mankind to keep the Feast Days, per Isaiah 66:23 (NKJV) “And it shall come to pass that from one New Moon to another, and from one Sabbath to another, all flesh shall come to worship before Me,” says Yahweh.” Zechariah 14:16 (NKJV) “And it shall come to pass that everyone who is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall go up from year to year to worship the King, Yahweh of hosts, and to keep the Feast of Tabernacles.”

5 – The seventh day Sabbath will be observed by all, per Exodus 31:16 (NKJV) “Therefore the children of Israel [this is the Olive Tree you are grafted into] shall keep the Sabbath, to observe the Sabbath throughout their generations as a perpetual covenant.” Mark 1:21 (NKJV) “. . . and immediately on the Sabbath He [Yeshua, your Savior and King] entered the synagogue and taught.”

6 – Yeshua will enforce the Leviticus 11 dietary laws, per Isaiah 66:17 (NKJV) “”Those who sanctify themselves and purify themselves, to go to the gardens after an idol in the midst, eating swine’s flesh and the abomination and the mouse, shall be consumed together,” says Yahweh.” Scavenger animals have never been considered FOOD by Yahweh and never will be considered FOOD, so they have never been declared clean and will never be considered clean animals, so they never will be kosher to eat. So get over your piggish seafood diet.

7 – Every idol will be demolished and every false religion abolished. Examples of false religions would be Islam, Catholicism, modern Judaism, Sunday go to meeting Christianity, per Zephaniah 2:11 (NKJV) “Yahweh will be awesome to them, for He will reduce to nothing all the mighty ones of the earth; people shall worship Him, each one from his place, indeed all the shores of the nations.”

8 – Nations are denied rain if they fail to pilgrimage to Jerusalem during the Feast of Tabernacles, per Zechariah 14:16-18 (NKJV) “And it shall come to pass that everyone who is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall go up from year to year to worship the King, Yahweh of hosts, and to keep the Feast of Tabernacles. 17And it shall be that whichever of the families of the earth do not come up to Jerusalem to worship the King, Yahweh of hosts, on them there will be no rain. 18If the family of Egypt will not come up and enter in, they shall have no rain; they shall receive the plague with which Yahweh strikes the nations who do not come up to keep the Feast of Tabernacles.”

9 – The curse to nature will be reversed and there will no longer be carnivores in the animal kingdom, per Isaiah 11:6-9 (NKJV) “”The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, the leopard shall lie down with the young goat, the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them. 7The cow and the bear shall graze; their young ones shall lie down together; and the lion shall eat straw like the ox. 8The nursing child shall play by the cobra’s hole, and the weaned child shall put his hand in the viper’s den. 9They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain, for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of Yahweh as the waters cover the sea.”

10 – Humans will live to be hundreds and hundreds of years in age, and some will be procreating forever, per Isaiah 65:19-23 (NKJV) “I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in My people; the voice of weeping shall no longer be heard in her, nor the voice of crying. 20“No more shall an infant from there live but a few days, nor an old man who has not fulfilled his days; for the child shall die one hundred years old, but the sinner being one hundred years old shall be accursed. 21They shall build houses and inhabit them; they shall plant vineyards and eat their fruit. 22They shall not build and another inhabit; they shall not plant and another eat; for as the days of a tree, so shall be the days of My people, and My elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands. 23They shall not labor in vain, nor bring forth children for trouble; for they shall be the descendants of the blessed of Yahweh, and their offspring with them.”

11 – Yeshua will set up His humble servants to serve in the Temple due to His inability to serve as High Priest while on the earth, per Isaiah 66:2, 14, 21 (NKJV) 2 . . . “But on this one will I look: on him who is poor and of a contrite spirit, and who trembles at My word. . . 14 . . The hand of Yahweh shall be known to His servants. . . 21And I will also take some of them for priests and Levites,” says Yahweh.” Hebrews 8:4 (NKJV) “For if He [Yeshua] were on earth, He would not be a priest, since there are priests who offer the gifts according to the Torah.”

12 – There will be no more weapons, or fear, of war due to world peace, per Micah 4:3-4 (NKJV) 3He shall judge between many peoples, and rebuke strong nations afar off; they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore. 4But everyone shall sit under his vine and under his fig tree, and no one shall make them afraid; for the mouth of Yahweh of hosts has spoken.”

13 – The immortal saints rule over/judge the nations of the earth with Yeshua, per Revelation 20:4-6 (NKJV) “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.” Daniel 7:22, 27 (NKJV) “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. 27 Then 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.’1 Corinthians 6:2-3 (NKJV) “Do you not know that the saints will judge the world? And if the world will be judged by you, are you unworthy to judge the smallest matters? 3Do you not know that we shall judge angels? How much more, things that pertain to this life?”

14 – People will travel long distances to hear Yeshua teach the law/Torah, per Micah 4:1-2 (NKJV) Now it shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of Yahweh’s house shall be established on the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and peoples shall flow to it. 2Many nations shall come and say, “Come, and let us go up to the mountain of Yahweh, to the house of the Divine One of Jacob; He will teach us His ways, and we shall walk in His paths.” For out of Zion the Torah shall go forth, and the word of Yahweh from Jerusalem.

Folks, human survivors of the Tribulation will have babies during the Millennium. Those babies will be born with a sin nature. Will you, future resurrected saints, be ready to minister to them and lead them to a saving knowledge of Yeshua? Matthew 24:44 (NKJV) Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.” [YESHUA ADVENT 2.0] Satan won’t be around to interfere with your life, so you will have NO excuse not to minister and witness for Yeshua. In fact, you could begin practicing today, while the Devil is here to harass you. What a great boot camp opportunity we have! Let’s not waste our time on entertainment and pop culture.

Isaiah 25:9 (NKJV) “And it will be said in that day: “Behold, this is our Divine One; we have waited for Him, and He will save us. This is Yahweh; we have waited for Him; we will be glad and rejoice in His salvation [Yeshua].””

Looking forward to the King’s return,

NUGGETS OF FIRE PROOF INVESTMENTS – PART 5

NUGGETS OF FIRE PROOF INVESTMENTS

PART 5

The Kingdom of Yahweh and all of creation is built on Yahweh’s Laws, His Torah.

Let’s look at the Torah first to see one of Yahweh’s Laws for making Fire Proof Investments. Exodus 23:10-11, “And you shall sow your land six years, and you shall gather (reap) its produce. 11And the seventh year you shall let it rest and let it lie fallow, and the needy of your people shall eat. And what they leave, the animals of the field shall eat. So you shall do to your vineyard, to your oliveyard.”

We find here in Exodus 23, Yahweh’s Law of Sowing and Reaping. Yahweh and Yeshua often teach through agricultural examples. This is a universal law that applies in every area of life. You sow love, you will reap love. You sow clothing to the homeless, you will always be receiving clothing. You sow money, you will reap money.

I want to make a side note that in the Hebrew you see something in verse 10, not seen in the English. Following the word sow and the word gather is the Hebrew letters Aleph/Tav, or in the Greek, Alpha/Omega. It is Strong’s word number 853, never translated into English, but it demonstrates that this law is a covenant law signed off on and ratified by Yeshua Himself, our Aleph/Tav, our First and Last, our Alpha and Omega!! As you read the Old Testament, look for Strong’s # 853, the Aleph/Tav, it is literally Yeshua’s initials in the Tanakh!

Also, notice another principle displayed in these verses, work or sow for six, then rest for one. Sow and reap for 6 years, then let your land rest for 1 year. Sow and reap for 6 days, then rest on the Sabbath! The Sabbath cycle is built into this Law of Sowing and Reaping. In fact the Sabbath cycle is an integral part of this law. You cannot separate these two laws. According to this passage, sowing and reaping works only in conjunction with the Sabbath cycle. If nothing else, the Sabbath is Yahweh’s time management system for His people. Observing the Sabbath laws causes the law of sowing and reaping to bring Yahweh’s blessing into your life. If you pervert, or break, the Sabbath law, don’t expect the sowing and reaping law to work for you.
