Deuteronomy 11:26 “Behold, I set before you today a blessing and a curse: 27 the blessing, if you obey the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you today; 28 and the curse, if you do not obey the commandments of the Lord your God, but turn aside from the way which I command you today, to go after other gods which you have not known.
When we turn away from Keeping YHVH God’s ordinances and commandments, In His mind, He understands that we must have some other god, otherwise we would obey Him. Thus, we have entered into idolatry.
Therefore, He stops blessing us simply because even though we know Him, and understand His Word, we turn our hearts away from Him. It doesn’t have to be a graven image, or an object of our desire.
He has said, Exodus 20:2 “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. 3 “You shall have no other gods before Me. 4 “You shall not make for yourself a carved image—any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; 5 you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, 6 but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.
It can simply be that we just do not want to listen to our Heavenly Father, our creator. But have instead transferred His authority to someone or something else. The net result of which is curses, rather than blessings.
So, who or what is it that we are following?
We can be sure that whatever it is, it does not hold a candle to YHVH God almighty.
We know this much that there has always been a struggle between the forces of darkness, and the forces of light, and we have been caught in the middle. Lies and deception are the tools of our false god, Satan.
And Christ warned us of false teachers, yet we have embraced them.
For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. (2nd Timothy 4:3, 4)
So, if we are sick, destitute, jobless, or downtrodden in any way. We have to consider our attitude toward our maker and our level of obedience to Him.
the blessing, if you obey the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you today; and the curse, if you do not obey the commandments of the Lord your God, (Vs 27, 28)
Make a choice today to either follow God and keep His commandments, or continue to make your way in this world cursed because of the idolatry that we have entered into.
But understand that we cannot claim ignorance any more, this is done with eyes wide open.
Deuteronomy 4:1 “Now, O Israel, listen to the statutes and the judgments which I teach you to observe, that you may live, and go in and possess the land which the Lord God of your fathers is giving you. 2 You shall not add to the word which I command you, nor take from it, that you may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you. 3 Your eyes have seen what the Lord did at Baal Peor; for the Lord your God has destroyed from among you all the men who followed Baal of Peor. 4 But you who held fast to the Lord your God are alive today, every one of you.
The commandments we have been given are the path to a peaceful life. But when we begin to dismiss them, trouble comes. And we have seen that over and over again played out in the scriptures, and in our personal lives.
We were warned of this many times over, Christ warned of what would happen if we did not walk the narrow path, and warned us of those who preach outside of the Law.
And then He said, “Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’” (Matthew 7:22, 23)
He has no intention of letting the Lawless enter the Kingdom of Elohim, and tells us straight up He will turn us away at the judgment bench.
Plus, we have been told, “You shall not add to the word which I command you, nor take from it, that you may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you.” (Vs 2)
And what have we done? We have changed YHVH God’s 4th Commandment, changing His Sabbath day. We have abandoned God’s feast days and created our own, adopting the feasts days of Pagan idol worshipers.
So now we preach and teach things that are not even in the Bible. Like Christmas, Easter, and Lent.
Oh, my friends, what have we allowed to creep into our Churches? Whatever it is it has no compunction about lies and deception, or coming against the very Elohim that created us.
Your eyes have seen what the Lord did at Baal Peor; for the Lord your God has destroyed from among you all the men who followed Baal of Peor. But you who held fast to the Lord your God are alive today, every one of you. (Vs 3, 4)
At Baal Peor, God destroy a large portion of the Children of Israel because they committed Idolatry with the Medes.
Numbers 25:1 Now Israel remained in Acacia Grove, and the people began to commit harlotry with the women of Moab. 2 They invited the people to the sacrifices of their gods, and the people ate and bowed down to their gods. 3 So Israel was joined to Baal of Peor, and the anger of the Lord was aroused against Israel.
Thousands died Be cause of the Fighting that resulted and the Plague, it is not a good thing to anger YHVH God. And don’t think that God has changed, he will never change.
“For I am the Lord, I do not change;” (Malachi 3:6)
We Have not gotten away with anything. The only thing that has changed is Christ has allowed us an opportunity to repent and be forgiven. And that will be available to us right up until the day we die.
Because of the grace of Yehoshua Christ, we have an opportunity to return to Him. But if we continue in our disobedience, and violate His Commandments. What we have done, is announce our idolatry to the whole world, and many of us, even the majority, will be headed to the fiery pit.
Revelation 20:13 And they were judged, each one according to his works. 14 Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. 15 And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.
Notice that at the time of judgment, we are given the same sentence as our master, Satan. who is the Anti-Christ, but if we return to Yehoshua now, this cannot and will not happen.
I know that there will be many who will refuse this opportunity to return to the way of Christ. And that saddens me. But if just one person comes out from under the false teachings of our churches today. I will feel as though my efforts have not been in vain.
1st John 2:6 He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked.
Do we not know that He would never Have engaged in the traditions we have invented?
“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. Then 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. And 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.” (Matthew 24:29-31)
But this is preceded in the 13th Chapter, “The Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and those who practice lawlessness, and will cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Then the righteous will shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears to hear, let him hear! (Matthew 13:41-43)
This seems to be a contradiction on one hand, but on the other it could just be the separation of the sheep and the goats. The righteous, from the unrighteous. The Angels are God’s messengers, and will carry out Christ’s commands.
And here we see two different commands being carried out. One is to remove the tares, from the wheat. And burn them. The other is to put the righteous in safe keeping.
“The Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and those who practice lawlessness, and will cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth. (Matthew 13:41, 42)
The wicked, and the disobedient are removed from the harvest and burned.
But in Matthew 24, there seems to be a completely different task for the angels.
“And 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.” (Matthew 24:31)
Here it seems that the gathering of the elect, the saved, is the task at hand for the angels, does it not?
But we must look carefully and not insert or conject into the Word things that are not said.
So, what is being said here? In order to understand the intent behind this gathering, I believe we would be wise to look at the 13th Chapter of Matthew again.
Matthew 13:30 “Let both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, “First gather together the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn.”
The good fruit is gathered into His shelter, a place that He has selected to keep them. And I believe that will be Jerusalem.
In any case I have to say that this is not about rapture but simple about securing what is His, at the time of His 1000-year reign.
Revelation 20:1 Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. 2 He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years; 3 and he cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal on him, so that he should deceive the nations no more till the thousand years were finished. But after these things he must be released for a little while. 4 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 Jesus and for the word of God, 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 Christ for a thousand years. 5 But the rest of the dead did not live again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. 6 Blessed 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 God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.
Leviticus 20:22 ‘You shall therefore keep all My statutes and all My judgments, and perform them, that the land where I am bringing you to dwell may not vomit you out. 23 And you shall not walk in the statutes of the nation which I am casting out before you; for they commit all these things, and therefore I abhor them. 24 But I have said to you, “You shall inherit their land, and I will give it to you to possess, a land flowing with milk and honey.” I am the Lord your God, who has separated you from the peoples. 25 You shall therefore distinguish between clean animals and unclean, between unclean birds and clean, and you shall not make yourselves abominable by beast or by bird, or by any kind of living thing that creeps on the ground, which I have separated from you as unclean. 26 And you shall be holy to Me, for I the Lord am holy, and have separated you from the peoples, that you should be Mine.
YHVH God, explains to us the meaning of some of the Ten Commandments. He is very clear about idolatry, adultery, and incest. He also brings forth the abomination of homosexuality, and beastiality, making it absolutely clear what is sin in His eyes.
Then He says, ‘You shall therefore keep all My statutes and all My judgments, and perform them, that the land where I am bringing you to dwell may not vomit you out. And you shall not walk in the statutes of the nation which I am casting out before you; for they commit all these things, and therefore I abhor them. (Vs 22, 23)
We are not to engage in idolatry, or any of these abdominal things, and we must not live according to their laws, or ordinances. For they allow things that are not compatible with YHVH God’s Law.
Like in our laws we have no restriction of Homosexuality, or the killing of babies. And He says clearly, that these are sins worthy of death.
Leviticus 20:13 If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them.
Leviticus 20:2 “Again, you shall say to the children of Israel: ‘Whoever of the children of Israel, or of the strangers who dwell in Israel, who gives any of his descendants to Molech, he shall surely be put to death. The people of the land shall stone him with stones. 3 I will set My face against that man, and will cut him off from his people, because he has given some of his descendants to Molech, to defile My sanctuary and profane My holy name. 4 And if the people of the land should in any way hide their eyes from the man, when he gives some of his descendants to Molech, and they do not kill him, 5 then I will set My face against that man and against his family; and I will cut him off from his people, and all who prostitute themselves with him to commit harlotry with Molech.
These are just a couple of examples of how corrupt we as a nation have become. Anyone who reads this Chapter and does not find at least one reason to repent, probably has not spent much time in this world.
But I have said to you, “You shall inherit their land, and I will give it to you to possess, a land flowing with milk and honey.” I am the Lord your God, who has separated you from the peoples. You shall therefore distinguish between clean animals and unclean, between unclean birds and clean, and you shall not make yourselves abominable by beast or by bird, or by any kind of living thing that creeps on the ground, which I have separated from you as unclean.” (Vs 24, 25)
When God gives us land, and possessions, and blesses us in what we do, we need to understand that His blessings are conditional, and in accordance with our covenant with Him.
Deuteronomy 11: 26“Behold, I set before you today a blessing and a curse: 27the blessing, if you obey the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you today; 28 and the curse, if you do not obey the commandments of the Lord your God, but turn aside from the way which I command you today, to go after other gods which you have not known.
He sees our disobedience as Idolatry. and will surely curse us for that.
So, we must take everything He says to heart, and keep His Word as best we can. And when we fail on any count, the Holy Spirit will let us know, and shame us into repentance.
We are intended to live lives that reflect the holiness that our covenant relationship requires of us.
Thus, YHVH concludes, and you shall be holy to Me, for I YHVH / the Lord am holy, and have separated you from the peoples, that you should be Mine.
Quit making excuses and repent for the time is at hand when the Judge comes, and many of us are not yet ready to stand before our King.
Exodus 31:12 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 13“Speak also to the children of Israel, saying: ‘Surely My Sabbaths you shall keep, for it is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, that you may know that I am the Lord who sanctifies you. 14 You shall keep the Sabbath, therefore, for it is holy to you. Everyone who profanes it shall surely be put to death; for whoever does any work on it, that person shall be cut off from among his people. 15 Work shall be done for six days, but the seventh is the Sabbath of rest, holy to the Lord. Whoever does any work on the Sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death. 16 Therefore the children of Israel shall keep the Sabbath, to observe the Sabbath throughout their generations as a perpetual covenant. 17 It is a sign between Me and the children of Israel forever; for in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day He rested and was refreshed.’” 18 And when He had made an end of speaking with him on Mount Sinai, He gave Moses two tablets of the Testimony, tablets of stone, written with the finger of God.
There were not just Israelites at the foot of the mountain, but a mixed multitude of various people who were either slaves, or living in Egypt, and came out with them.
Exodus 12:37 Then the children of Israel journeyed from Rameses to Succoth, about six hundred thousand men on foot, besides children. 38 A mixed multitude went up with them also, and flocks and herds—a great deal of livestock.
So YHVH is speaking of a crowd of people who are not only the Children of Israel / Jacob, but from other nations as well. And many were Egyptians who came out with them, having seen first-hand the power of God.
So, before He hands over the tablets to Moses, what is the very last thing He says to Him. What takes precedence over all other things?
The Sabbath must be kept!
YHVH says, “Speak also to the children of Israel, saying: ‘Surely My Sabbaths you shall keep, for it is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, that you may know that I am the Lord who sanctifies you.” (Vs 13)
Sanctification comes from God. He sets us aside as His, a holy and righteous people. There is no other source of sanctification, and this is why He says that the Sabbath is a sign, or mark that His people bear, making them different from any other people in the World. It is a sign that they are obedient to YHVH God, and walk in His ways.
Deuteronomy 4:7 “For what great nation is there that has God so near to it, as the Lord our God is to us, for whatever reason we may call upon Him? 8 And what great nation is there that has such statutes and righteous judgments as are in all this law which I set before you this day?”
Clearly, He sanctifies and sets aside those who keep His Commandments. Not because they are Jews or Hebrews, but because they are obedient, and walk according to YHVH’s instructions.
YHVH tells Moses, “You shall keep the Sabbath, therefore, for it is holy to you. Everyone who profanes it shall surely be put to death; for whoever does any work on it, that person shall be cut off from among his people.” (Vs 14)
Ostracized, excluded, and removed from the assembly of YHVH, because of going against the very mark of God. and he says we are marked for death because we have violated His most important Commandment.
YHVH Says, “Work shall be done for six days, but the seventh is the Sabbath of rest, holy to the Lord. Whoever does any work on the Sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death.” (Vs 15)
YHVH doesn’t repeat Himself, unless it is something that we must really hear and understand. We must not work, but rest on His Sabbath day. And the punishment for not hearing this, is death.
We must not call on the name of YHVH God, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, unless we are going to submit to Him.
Hebrews 10:31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
And why did the author of Hebrews say that? Simply because He will judge us and those who fail to make the grade will die an eternal death. God says what He means, and means what he says.
“Therefore, the children of Israel shall keep the Sabbath, to observe the Sabbath throughout their generations as a perpetual covenant. It is a sign between Me and the children of Israel forever; for in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day He rested and was refreshed.’” (Vs 16, 17)
So now, my gentile friends, we need to determine whether or not we are a part of the same body of believers that this applies to, don’t we?
When we come to Christ, we have placed ourselves in submission to a Jewish Savior, the King of Israel, have we not. We come to Him broken and He receives us into His assembly, we are grafted into His Kingdom.
And how do we learn of Him except that we have read and studied a book of scripture written by Hebrews / Israelites. And have come to faith in the God of Israel.
Perhaps then we need to consider that we have become a part of the mixed multitude of Israel. And because this is so, everything in the Bible applies to us, even the keeping of the 4th Commandment, the Sabbath.
For without it we do not bear His mark, or His sign that we have been sanctified.
And when He had made an end of speaking with him on Mount Sinai, He gave Moses two tablets of the Testimony, tablets of stone, written with the finger of God. (Vs 18)
Christ knew and understood these things, and this is why He said, you cannot color out side of the lines. And surely, we have been doing this.
Hence He says, “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.”(Matthew 7:13, 14)
There isn’t much time, get ready to receive your King, and do not be judge as one worthy of death! For He is coming to Judge.
Revelation 20:11 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. 12 And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before YHVH God, 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. 13 The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works. 14 Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. 15 And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.
The Apostle John tells of His dream or vision, and in it he saw these things. He tells us that after the 1000-year reign of Christ Yehoshua there will be these events having to do with our judgment.
He says, “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.” (Vs 11)
As if to say that there was no longer any need for the Earth or for Heaven. No place was found for them. There will no longer be a separation of heaven and earth and no need for it. There’s no longer a place for good and evil, only the Kingdom of Elohim will remain.
He goes on to say, “And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before YHVH God, 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 sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works.” (Vs 12, 13)
So now we will see the judgment of the dead through the eyes of the Apostle John. These were the ones who had been either in Hell, or asleep in their graves, but nevertheless dead.
This tells me that Judgment does not necessarily come at the time of our death, but the final judgment come on this day, at this time in mass.
Then John says, “Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.” (Vs 14)
Those of us who have passed on will rest in our graves up until this time. We sleep and dream thinking we have made it into heaven, but not so, at least not yet.
So, now comes the second death, even though we are already dead, there will be given a final disposition, a judgment as to whether or not we shall be worthy of life or death in the Spirit. And there is but one person who is fit to make this judgment, Messiah Yehoshua Himself who is seated on the White Throne.
“And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.” (Vs 15)
Everyone who will be granted eternal life is written in the book of life. So, who will be found written in this book?
Exodus 32:30Now it came to pass on the next day that Moses said to the people, “You have committed a great sin. So now I will go up to the Lord; perhaps I can make atonement for your sin.” 31 Then Moses returned to the Lord and said, “Oh, these people have committed a great sin, and have made for themselves a god of gold! 32 Yet now, if You will forgive their sin—but if not, I pray, blot me out of Your book which You have written.” 33 And the Lord said to Moses, “Whoever has sinned against Me, I will blot him out of My book. 34 Now therefore, go, lead the people to the place of which I have spoken to you. Behold, My Angel shall go before you. Nevertheless, in the day when I visit for punishment, I will visit punishment upon them for their sin.”
Apparently, this book is an accounting of sins, and at some point, our name can be removed from it. Depending on our willing obedience!
Revelation 3:4 “You have a few names even in Sardis who have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with Me in white, for they are worthy. 5 He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life; but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels.”
Messiah will bring forth the names of those who have repented and overcome the World, and the pitfalls that Satan has placed before them. clearly, it is He who overcomes the world that is written in this book of life.
1st John 5:3 For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome. 4 For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith. 5 Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?
What other way is there to determine who is worthy to enter the Kingdom? Have we considered those who have received the Mark of the Beast?
Let’s take a look at that now.
Revelation 14:9 Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, 10 he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb.
Many of us believe it is a Physical Mark, while some of us believe it is the mark or sign that is outlined in Exodus 31 in those who keep the Sabbath, as opposed to those who don’t.
Exodus 31:12 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 13 “Speak also to the children of Israel, saying: ‘Surely My Sabbaths you shall keep, for it is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, that you may know that I am the Lord who sanctifies you.
So yes, it is a sign, and life or death is in the offing because of it.
But because of recent events, I now believe that the mark is in the vaccine, and those who have taken it have received Nano Technology into their bodies, which means that your life is no longer your own, but belongs to whomever introduced that technology into our body and owns the intellectual rights to it! These Nanites replicate themselves, attach to various nerve tissues, and enter the brain. And the first place they go, is the frontal lobe, the forehead. They not only affect our thinking, but they can be manipulated by High frequency signals from 4G towers. We can be tracked and our thoughts monitored, by the beast and His minions. Those who have received this injection are no longer in possession of their lives, but have entered into bondage, to the beast, and to Satan.
Do not allow yourself to be deceived into taking this so-called vaccination. It will be the death of you, in spite of what you may think. If not by the Jab itself, then by the judgment that is promised to come!
Matthew 16:24 “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. 25 For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. 26 For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? 27 For the Son of Man will come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and then He will reward each according to his works.
So many of us want to say that we follow Christ, but here is the problem with that statement. Yehoshua Christ did things, said things, and lived in a completely different manner than we do. He lived and died for the sake of others. He kept God’s law, did not eat anything that God declared unclean. And we have seen that among the commandments He kept God’s Sabbath, and both he and His disciples always kept the 7th day Sabbath. He kept Passover, and all of the other feast days, just as God the Father ordained them as appointed times.
So, in what way do we follow Christ, and how are we like Him?
He said, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.” (Vs 24)
He is calling us to follow Him, but to die to self, and allow His Spirit to prevail in all that we do and say, entering into the same sacrificial life style that brought Him to the cross.
Have we done that?
“For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it.” (Vs 25)
Nothing is more important to our salvation than setting aside our own self-importance, and even if it cost us our life, we are obliged to let the Spirit of Messiah prevail in all matters, because we follow Him.
“For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?” (Vs 26)
Yehoshua poses a really great question here, where is the profit in not following Him? The whole purpose of following Him is to gain salvation, eternal life. In order to do this, we have to enter the Kingdom of YHWH God. We are going to spend the rest of eternity in that place He has prepared for us. and laying down our mortal lives and all of the trappings of this world is part of that.
So, we need to ask ourselves a question. Where are we now? Are we living eternal lives, or worldly lives?
And until we depart this world, that will always be at the heart of our existence. Where have we placed our bets?
“For the Son of Man will come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and then He will reward each according to his works.”
He is coming, and soon now, He comes to bring back to the Father the fruit of His work here in this world. And those who have taken on His likeness will be on His “A” list. For we will not be judged by grace, but by the evidence of our activity in this world, bearing fruit for the Kingdom.
He rewards us each, according to our works!
So really How are you and I like Him?
Do we walk according to His Way, His truth, and His life, or have we bought into the lies and deception of the Lawless one?
Do we say grace, grace, grace, will save me, or do we begin to follow Christ and do the works He did?
John 14:23 “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him. 24 He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine but the Father’s who sent Me.
Christ is the Logos, the living Word of God, pay attention to what He has said, and dispose of your corrupt doctrine.
Luke 17:22 “The days will come when you will desire to see one of the days of the Son of Man, and you will not see it. 23 And they will say to you, ‘Look here!’ or ‘Look there!’ Do not go after them or follow them. 24 For as the lightning that flashes out of one part under heaven shines to the other part under heaven, so also the Son of Man will be in His day. 25 But first He must suffer many things and be rejected by this generation. 26 And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man: 27 They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. 28 Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot: They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; 29 but on the day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. 30 Even so will it be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed.
He speaking to His disciples and also to Him who reads these Holy Words, and tells us that the time will come when we will desire to see Him come, and come He will!
“The days will come when you will desire to see one of the days of the Son of Man, and you will not see it.” (Vs 22)
But we will not see it, at least as soon as we would like. For many of us are awaiting His coming now.
“And they will say to you, ‘Look here!’ or ‘Look there!’ Do not go after them or follow them.” (Vs 23)
There will be the call to follow men who say they are Christ and claim that He has come, but we will find that these are false Christs. He says, ‘do not follow after them.”
And we have seen a few false Christs already, the chief of which is the Pope.
But as he says, He will come, and when He does, He will destroy the Anti-Christ and every lying word He has ever spoken.
2nd Thessalonians 2:8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming.
Even so, He will wait until He is soundly rejected by those who are of the world. And we see that now! Especially among the godless people who are seated in the halls of government here in America, as well as in other countries. Some of which have a hatred toward God’s people, so much so, that they want to kill us. and many have been executed already because of this hatred of Christ. May Christ receive their eternal souls.
And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man: 27 They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. 28 Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot: They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; 29 but on the day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. 30 Even so will it be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed. (Vs 26-27)
It is just as it is today, life is going on all around us, and we are living as we normally would, even though we know that the time of His coming is drawing near. This is exactly the kind of environment that He would choose for His arrival.
But we need to know that just prior to His coming there will be great destruction. And this time the world will be cleansed by fire, not by flood.
Over the past 30 or so years He has given me a peek at it, and even let me see my own death.
In a dream, I was standing on a hillside when I saw a huge explosion in the distance. I saw a huge mushroom cloud rising thousands of feet into the atmosphere. And I saw a force field coming toward me destroying everything in its path. As it reached me, carrying with it trees, houses, and cars, it hit me and this broiling storm of a force went through me. And I turned to watch it going away from me, still wreaking havoc on everything in its path.
And when I turned, there was another man standing there next to me. I am sure it is my Savior, and redeemer.
Like the Apostle Paul said, “We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.” (2nd Corinthians 5:8)
I have kept my dreams to myself for years but now, but now I believe it’s time to draw a conclusion, not that we can prepare for it, or do anything to stop it. But some of us will survive the coming destruction, just as Noah and His Family did when YHWH God brought the flood.
So now this is what I have concluded because of recent events.
This nation is about to be attacked.
There will be a destruction of everything especially population centers, every large city turned to ashes. No food, no fuel, no electricity, and no law.
I have warned you many times in the past, but now we are on the threshold of this event.
I have known this for over thirty years, and this is why I am where I am, doing what I am doing now.
I know that our military has been deployed, because of this threat, and I know that we will be occupied by a foreign military. Asian mostly.
It will be as if God has snatched our foundations out from under us, and one day it’s a normal life, and the next day is going to be survival of the fittest.
While many of us know that God’s wrath has got to come, because of what this nation has done in his sight. We are not prepared for this scenario. And many of us are going along as if everything is fine, building for a future that will not come.
I am obligated to tell you this before it happens, simply because of where the warning comes from.
So, I say to you who believe that God will protect His remnant, get ready to be that body that He will remember, and come for.
Think outside of the box for If Christ is anything, He is unorthodox!
I tell you this in the name of Yehoshua HaMashiach.
Genesis 26:3 Dwell in this land, and I will be with you and bless you; for to you and your descendants I give all these lands, and I will perform the oath which I swore to Abraham your father. 4 And I will make your descendants multiply as the stars of heaven; I will give to your descendants all these lands; and in your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed; 5 because Abraham obeyed My voice and kept My charge, My commandments, My statutes, and My laws.”
Adonai appeared to Isaac and renewed the vow He had made with His Father Abraham.
He tells Him why He is doing this, He says to Isaac, “because Abraham obeyed My voice and kept My charge, My commandments, My statutes, and My laws.” (Vs 5)
Here is also His promise to you and I, for we are descended from Abraham also. As He said, “And I will make your descendants multiply as the stars of heaven; I will give to your descendants all these lands; and in your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed;” (Vs 4)
But with one major difference, we have abused our relationship with God to the point that we no longer hear His voice like Abraham and Isaac did. And we surely don’t keep His charge, His commandments or, His statutes.
I often wonder, why we have turned away from the God of our Fathers? Why is it that we want to talk about how He loves us, but we refrain from discussion about how we ought to love Him?
Yes, he loves us! Just as we love our children, He loves His. But many of us don’t really see Adonai as our Father, even though He gives us life, and is our maker and finisher in this life.
The Relationship that Abraham and Isaac had with Adonai was one of complete dependence, every word that Adonai said, was kept, even down to the last detail. Even though Abraham came from Ur of Chaldees. A land where there were many idols, Abraham chose to follow the living God, who spoke to Him audibly.
And still, He speaks to us, but hearing seems to be a problem for us, because we have not become accustomed to listening and other voices are louder than that of a God we do not love or depend on.
So how do we return from this place of being separated from The Father? We look to Christ Yehoshua, and follow Him.
Did Christ not say to us, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him. He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine but the Father’s who sent Me.” (John 14:23, 24)
Here is how we come back home! There has to be love and trust, in order to return to Abba Father. And our obedience is what gives us the keys to His Kingdom.
Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves Him who begot also loves him who is begotten of Him. By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and keep His commandments. For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome. (1st John 5:1-3)
We will not be able to say we have a love relationship with God until we begin to do for Him what Abraham and Isaac did. They Loved God with reckless abandon and did whatever He said.
We need to understand that this is what Yehoshua Christ means when He says, “If you love Me, keep My commandments.” (John 14:15)
And not only that, but there is going to be a response when we enter into this love relationship with Yehoshua. He will give us a full measure of the Holy Spirit. And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever—the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.” (John14:16, 17)
Here He ties our obedience to our willingness to live for Him, and keep His Word.
And I can attest to the fact that this Holy Spirit comes with Power upon our commitment to do as He tells us.
Our love ought not be withheld from Him who died for us in any case, except that we are so wrapped up in ourselves that we just cannot afford to love God!
Proverbs 6:23 For the commandment is a lamp, and the law a light; Reproofs of instruction are the way of life,
Isn’t it interesting that the Bible calls the Law a light, and a lamp? And that Christ also refers to Himself as a light.
“I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.” (John 8:12)
He is the embodiment of God’s Law, the Word of YHWH God, in the flesh. He has no choice but to call us back to the covenant / Law.
Therefore, we hear Him say, 17“Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. 18 For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled. 19 Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20 For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 5:17-20)
He did not come to destroy the Torah / Law or abolish it. And those who claim that He did, are lying through their teeth, because the rest of the scriptures will not support such a statement.
And we must also consider that Adonai said, “Surely the Lord GOD does nothing, unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets.” (Amos 3:7)
No Prophet has ever mentioned anything about doing away with the Law, or even suspending it. It has always been in effect, even through the days of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Adonai has always insisted on our keeping to His way even in the Garden of Eden. And the fall of man was caused by violating His Law / Commandment.
Then the Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to tend and keep it. And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, “Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.” (Genesis 2:15-17)
But as sure as fire, Adam and Eve got deceived into violating this Commandment, and the deception has been on going even until now. That same serpent is among us today sowing His false doctrine, and trying to take us away from the Kingdom of Elohim, and there are fools who just love it.
For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. (2nd Timothy 4:3, 4)
And so here we are, right back at ground Zero, have we learned nothing? We still are listening to Satan, even after Yehoshua Christ the Messiah came and died so that we would have a chance at returning to His Ways.
Why else would He say, “If you love me, keep my commandments.”?
But in our zeal for rebellion, and the love of our sin, we have bought into the lies. Thus, on the day of judgment we will hear Him say. “‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’” (Matthew 7:23)
And then in Revelation the Apostle John speaking for Adonai says, “Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city. But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie.” (Revelation 22:14, 15)
Sadly, this practice of loving Satan’s lies will cost many of our protagonists their eternal lives. But what else can be done?
We have kept to our calling and warned them, citing scripture upon scripture, but still they hide from the truth, because they have been so well indoctrinated. God Help them!
