Nation against Nation, Kingdom against Kingdom -Major world wide conflict that begin the End
Times or Last Days: World War I & II (1914 ,1939) Matthew 24:7
Both World Wars had major Jewish implications, The Holocaust, & Zionist Movement
State of Israel is established in 1948. Israel is established as a secular nation in unbelief for a
future judgment known as a Time of Jacob’s Trouble, The Bibles speaks of a great gathering
of Gentile Armies against Jerusalem. If this is true then the return of Israel in 1948 is a significant fulfillment of Bible prophecy. Ezekiel 20:33-35 , Ezekiel 22:17 , Zephaniah 2:1
Jerusalem the capitol of Israel is under Jewish control (1967) Daniel 9:27 , Matthew 24:15,
2 Thessalonians 2:3 , Revelation 11:2
PRESENT DAY
Israel negotiates peace with Arab neighbors -(This sets the stage for the Non-Arab invasion of Ezekiel
38 , where Arab nations will not be involved in this conflict because of the peace treaty.) Non Arab nations (Iran and Russia) will come against Israel.
FUTURE EVENTS
• A Peace treaty with the Arab states will lead into non-Arab conflict involving an invasion of
Israel Ezekiel 38 (Rosh-Russia) (Cush-Ethiopia) (Meshech-Moscow) (Libya-Put) (TubalTubalsk,Siberia) (Gomer-Germany) (Persia-Iran) (Togarmah-Armenia)
• The One World Government will be established- (One Horn) Daniel 7:23
• One world government divides into ten kingdoms (Ten Horn) Daniel 7:24a (Note: The European Union is one of the Ten Toes)
• The Rise of Anti-Christ, (Anti-Messiah who opposes the real Messiah) is different from the
other nations that ruled the earth. Some believe the Anti-Messiah will serve as a false Messiah for the Jewish People. This is not the case. He is the one world leader who takes over
the Jewish Temple and claims himself as God. The Anti-Christ is of Roman origin, the prince
of the people who destroyed the city. Daniel 7:24b
• Period of peace and false security 3 1/2 year period of false peace for Israel. Turmoil for the
rest of the world. 1 Thessalonians 5:1-3
• *Blackout Joel 2:31
• *Return of Eliyahu HaNavi (Elijah the Prophet) the forerunner of the Messiah. Malachi 4:5-6 ,
Malachi 3:1 , Isaiah 40:3
• *The Third Temple will be restored and sacrifices will be reinstituted at the Temple Mount in
Jerusalem. Daniel 9:27 , Isaiah 66:1
*The order of these events are not confirmed until the events work their way out in the future.
RAPTURE OF THE CONGREGATION OF THE MESSIAH
“YESHUAT HASHEM KEHEREF AYIN” –
“GOD’S SALVATION COMES IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE.”
New Testament Saints – All believers in the Messiah, after the cross. The Church is composed of Believing Jews and Gentiles beginning at Acts Chapter 2 until the Rapture. The fact is that the Messiah
can come at any time to gather the New Testament Saints. There are no preconditions for the
“catching away of believers”. If Messiah comes in the middle of the tribulation or the end then we would
know exactly when he is coming and then we would get ready. The scriptures teach that the Messiah
will come secretly before the wrath. The Second Coming is exactly seven years after the signing of the
covenant with the Anti-Christ, but the rapture could happen at any moment.
The Rapture can come at any moment, Matthew 24:42,44 , Luke 12:35
Mansions are being prepared for believers John 14:1-3
Believers will meet the Messiah in the air (dead ones will rise first) 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
Believers receive glorified bodies 1 Corinthians 15:50-58
Believers are delivered from the wrath to come 1 Thessalonians 1:9-10
Yeshua will come secretly before the wrath Luke 21:36 ,1 Thessalonians 5:1-10
Shofar (Trumpet) of Righteousness blown 1 Corinthians 15:52
There are normal conditions on the earth Matthew 24:38-44
(Note that the Church is not mentioned at anytime during the Wrath in the book of Revelations, The
church is heavily mentioned during the first three chapters, and not again until Revelation. 19:11-16.
Tribulation Saints are all believer who accept the Messiah Yeshua after the church is raptured.) There
are believers present during the entire tribulation. In fact the purpose of the tribulation is to bring people
to faith by means of God’s wrath, and cause them to cry out the Messiah. The Church is not mentioned
in any tribulation passage. The elect, believers, tribulation saints who come to Messiah after the rapture exist, but the Church is not mentioned in any passage.
BIMAH SEAT JUDGMENT FOR CHURCH SAINTS ONLY FOR REWARDS
Believers will be judged. Not for their sins, because our sins were judged on the cross. We are judged
for our works done in the body. Our works will be judged at the Bema. The Bema is the term for the
Judgment Seat. In the synagogue the Bema is the raised platform in the center of the synagogue
where the Torah is read. Messiah will be at the Bema to judge our works.
• An accounting of our works will be given Romans 14:10-12
• Basis of this judgment 2 Corinthians 5:10
• Bad works are burned 1 Corinthians 3:10-15
• Five types of crowns will be given to those who are faithful:
• Incorruptible Crown 1 Corinthians 9:24-25
• Crown of Rejoicing 1 Thessalonians 2:19
• Crown of Righteousness 2 Timothy 4:7-8
• Crown of Life James 1:12 , Revelation 2:10
• Crown of Glory 1 Peter 5:2-4

saints. 9
Then he said to me, “Write: ‘Blessed are those who are called to the
marriage supper of the Lamb!’
Second Coming of Messiah to Save Israel from the Gentile Nations
Zechariah 14 :1 Behold, a day is coming for the Lord when the spoil taken from you will be divided
among you. 2 For I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem to battle, and the city will be captured, the houses plundered, the women ravished, and half of the city exiled, but the rest of the people will not be cut off from the city. 3 Then the Lord will go forth and fight against those nations,
as when He fights on a day of battle. 4 And in that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives,
which is in front of Jerusalem on the east; and the Mount of Olives will be split in its middle from east
to west by a very large valley, so that half of the mountain will move toward the north and the other
half toward the south. 5 And you will flee by the valley of My mountains, for the valley of the mountains will reach to Azel; yes, you will flee just as you fled before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah
king of Judah. Then the Lord, my God, will come, and all the holy ones with Him!
(No where in scripture is there an indication of a “Battle of Armageddon” only a gathering of Gentile
nations for the purpose of conflict with Israel, the Battle begins in Petra or Bozrah in the southern
region of Jordan)

The Location of the Second Coming of The Messiah at Petra
Isaiah 63:1-6 Who is this who comes from Edom
(Southern Jordan), with garments of glowing colors from
Bozrah, This One who is majestic in His apparel, Marching
in the greatness of His strength? “It is I who speak in
righteousness, mighty to save.” Why is Your apparel
red, And Your garments like the one who treads in the
wine press? “I have trodden the wine trough alone, And
from the peoples there was no man with Me. I also trod
them in My anger, And trampled them in My wrath; And
their lifeblood is sprinkled on My garments, And I stained
all My raiment. “For the day of vengeance was in My
heart, And My year of redemption has come. “And I
looked, and there was no one to help, And I was astonished and there was no one to uphold; So My own arm
brought salvation to Me; And My wrath upheld Me.
“And I trod down the peoples in My anger, And made them
drunk in My wrath, And I poured out their lifeblood on the
earth.”

fathers in the day I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt, My covenant which
they broke, although I was a husband to them,” declares the Lord.33 “But this is the covenant which I
will make with the house of Israel after those days,” declares the Lord, “I will put My law within them,
and on their heart I will write it; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.34 “And they
shall not teach again, each man his neighbor and each man his brother, saying, `Know the Lord,’ for
they shall all know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them,” declares the Lord, “for I will
forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more.”

The Lord will establish a house in Zion: Micah 4:1-5
And it will come about in the last days That the mountain of the house of the Lord Will be established as the chief of the mountains. It will be raised above the hills, And the peoples will stream to it.
And many nations will come and say, “Come and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord And to the
house of the God of Jacob, That He may teach us about His ways And that we may walk in His
paths.” For from Zion will go forth the law, Even the word of the Lord from Jerusalem (not
heaven). And He will judge between many peoples And render decisions for mighty, distant nations.
Then they will hammer their swords into plowshares And their spears into pruning hooks; Nation will
not lift up sword against nation, And never again will they train for war.

The Shofar will Sound

Behold, I tell you a mystery; we will not all sleep, but we will all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last blast of the shofar (trumpet), the Tikiah Gadolah; for the shofar will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. For this perishable must put on the imperishable, and this mortal must put on immortality. But when this perishable will have put on the imperishable, and this mortal will have put on immortality, then will come about the saying that is written, “Death is swallowed up in victory” — 1 Corinthians 15: 51-54

The Tree That Keeps On Giving!

The Shameful Tree

Then Jesus shouted, “Father, I entrust my spirit into your hands!” And with those words he breathed his last.

Luke 23:46 NLT

Behold the Savior of mankind nailed to the shameful tree! How vast the love that Him inclined to bleed and die for thee!

‘Tis done! the precious ransom’s paid! “Receive my soul!” He cries; see where He bows His sacred head! He bows His head and dies!

Behold the Savior of Mankind
Samuel Wesley (1662-1735)

Saved from the fire

On February 9, 1709, a fire ripped through a rectory in the village of Epworth, England. The Wesley family lost nearly everything. Miraculously, their six-year-old boy named John (who would later found the Methodist church) was saved from the fire, as was a piece of paper bearing this hymn, written by the rector, Samuel Wesley.

Samuel Wesley, father of John and Charles (and seventeen other children), was scholarly and stern. His major academic project was a study of the book of Job. And he faced a great deal of suffering himself. Nine of his children died at birth or in infancy. He was frequently in debt (even spending three months in debtors’ prison). Of course, there was also that devastating fire.

This hymn, however, shows us a slightly different side of Samuel Wesley. The theme of suffering is strong, but there’s an attitude of love, of devotion. Apparently he taught his famous sons more than just discipline, but also a deep appreciation for what Christ accomplished through His suffering.

YESHUA

Morning

“Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered.”
Hebrews 5:8

We are told that the Captain of our salvation was made perfect through suffering, therefore we who are sinful, and who are far from being perfect, must not wonder if we are called to pass through suffering too. Shall the head be crowned with thorns, and shall the other members of the body be rocked upon the dainty lap of ease? Must Christ pass through seas of his own blood to win the crown, and are we to walk to heaven dryshod in silver slippers? No, our Master’s experience teaches us that suffering is necessary, and the true-born child of God must not, would not, escape it if he might. But there is one very comforting thought in the fact of Christ’s “being made perfect through suffering”–it is, that he can have complete sympathy with us. “He is not an high priest that cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities.” In this sympathy of Christ we find a sustaining power. One of the early martyrs said, “I can bear it all, for Jesus suffered, and he suffers in me now; he sympathizes with me, and this makes me strong.” Believer, lay hold of this thought in all times of agony. Let the thought of Jesus strengthen you as you follow in his steps. Find a sweet support in his sympathy; and remember that, to suffer is an honourable thing–to suffer for Christ is glory. The apostles rejoiced that they were counted worthy to do this. Just so far as the Lord shall give us grace to suffer for Christ, to suffer with Christ, just so far does he honour us. The jewels of a Christian are his afflictions. The regalia of the kings whom God hath anointed are their troubles, their sorrows, and their griefs. Let us not, therefore, shun being honoured. Let us not turn aside from being exalted. Griefs exalt us, and troubles lift us up. “If we suffer, we shall also reign with him.”

Evening

“I called him, but he gave me no answer.”
Song of Solomon 5:6

Prayer sometimes tarrieth, like a petitioner at the gate, until the King cometh forth to fill her bosom with the blessings which she seeketh. The Lord, when he hath given great faith, has been known to try it by long delayings. He has suffered his servants’ voices to echo in their ears as from a brazen sky. They have knocked at the golden gate, but it has remained immovable, as though it were rusted upon its hinges. Like Jeremiah, they have cried, “Thou hast covered thyself with a cloud, that our prayer should not pass through.” Thus have true saints continued long in patient waiting without reply, not because their prayers were not vehement, nor because they were unaccepted, but because it so pleased him who is a Sovereign, and who gives according to his own pleasure. If it pleases him to bid our patience exercise itself, shall he not do as he wills with his own! Beggars must not be choosers either as to time, place, or form. But we must be careful not to take delays in prayer for denials: God’s long-dated bills will be punctually honoured; we must not suffer Satan to shake our confidence in the God of truth by pointing to our unanswered prayers. Unanswered petitions are not unheard. God keeps a file for our prayers–they are not blown away by the wind, they are treasured in the King’s archives. This is a registry in the court of heaven wherein every prayer is recorded. Tried believer, thy Lord hath a tear-bottle in which the costly drops of sacred grief are put away, and a book in which thy holy groanings are numbered. By and by, thy suit shall prevail. Canst thou not be content to wait a little? Will not thy Lord’s time be better than thy time? By and by he will comfortably appear, to thy soul’s joy, and make thee put away the sackcloth and ashes of long waiting, and put on the scarlet and fine linen of full fruition.

GOD IS ETERNALLY IN CHARGE

God is in charge of the world

How can God be in charge when some rulers are such tyrants?

The king’s heart is like a stream of water directed by the Lord; he turns it wherever he pleases.  Proverbs 21:1 NLT

God’s authority:

God rules his creation. Nothing is outside his authority — not even the leaders of the nations and kingdoms of this world. No person is placed in a position of power outside of God’s will. This can be a great comfort when we see leaders take over in various places, especially leaders with whom we do not agree.

So what does this mean for the cruel tyrants of the world? It means that they too are under God’s authority. Satan may author their evil acts, but their wrongdoing can only occur within the boundaries God sets. Why those boundaries are where they are for some nations is a question only God can answer. But we can rest assured that no power is in authority outside of God’s plan. God always accomplishes his will, even through the most wicked leaders. God is always the final authority.

WISE WAYS  How will you pray today for the leaders of your country, as well as for leaders around the world?

Today, Lord, may I trust that you are the sovereign authority over all that happens in my nation. May I trust you, even as I work on your behalf.

A leader has two important characteristics: first, he knows where he is going; second, he is able to persuade other people to go with him.

JESUS IS OUR LIFE BOAT

JESUS IS THE LIFE BOAT

JESUS IS THE LIFE BOAT

1 John 4:10                  King James Version (KJV)

Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.

Matthew 22:23-46

Marriage at the Resurrection

23 That same day the Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection, came to him with a question. 24 “Teacher,” they said, “Moses told us that if a man dies without having children, his brother must marry the widow and raise up offspring for him. 25 Now there were seven brothers among us. The first one married and died, and since he had no children, he left his wife to his brother. 26 The same thing happened to the second and third brother, right on down to the seventh. 27 Finally, the woman died. 28 Now then, at the resurrection, whose wife will she be of the seven, since all of them were married to her?”

29 Jesus replied, “You are in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God. 30 At the resurrection people will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven. 31 But about the resurrection of the dead—have you not read what God said to you, 32 ‘I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob’? He is not the God of the dead but of the living.”

33 When the crowds heard this, they were astonished at his teaching.

The Greatest Commandment

34 Hearing that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, the Pharisees got together. 35 One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question: 36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”

37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

Whose Son Is the Messiah?

41 While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them, 42 “What do you think about the Messiah? Whose son is he?”

“The son of David,” they replied.

43 He said to them, “How is it then that David, speaking by the Spirit, calls him ‘Lord’? For he says,

44 “‘The Lord said to my Lord:
“Sit at my right hand
until I put your enemies
under your feet.”’

45 If then David calls him ‘Lord,’ how can he be his son?”46 No one could say a word in reply, and from that day on no one dared to ask him any more questions.

“He shall see of the travail of His soul, and be satisfied. By His knowledge shall My
righteous Servant justify many, for He shall bear their iniquities.”
Isaiah 53:11.
YESHUA

YESHUA

THE PAST – Events that are already fulfilled

  1. Yeshua Ha Mashiach (Jesus the Messiah) is Born in Bethlehem circa. 6 B.C.E.
  2. The Finished Work Accomplished – Sacrifice of Messiah circa 30 C.E. (A.D.)
  3. Destruction of the Temple (70 A.D.) Predicted by Messiah in Matthew 24:2
  4. Jewish Dispersion: Deuteronomy 28:15-29 , Ezekiel 36:2-8 , Zechariah 10:9
  5. Church Age – Mystery form of the Kingdom Matthew 13 , Ephesians :2
    The Church Age is characterized by the seven churches in the Book of Revelation. The writer is speaking of seven actual first century churches, and all churches throughout the ages. There is a pattern between these churches and periods of church history.
Church Meaning of Name Historical Church Age Time Period
Ephesus Desired Apostolic Church 30-100 A.D.
Smyrna Myrrh (death) Roman Persecution 100-313
Pergamum Thoroughly Married Roman Church State 313-600
Thyatira Perpetual Sacrifice Dark Ages 600-1517
Sardis Those Escaping Reformation 1517-1648
Philadelphia Brotherly Love Missionary Movement 1648-1900
Laodicea People Ruling Apostasy 1900-present

 

Ephesus (30-100 A.D.) Apostolic Age of the Church Revelation 2:1
Smyrna (100-313 A.D.) Roman Persecution of the Church Revelation 2:8
Pergamum (313-600 A.D.) Age of Constantine Revelation 2:12
Thyatira (600-1517 A.D.) Dark Ages Revelation 2:18
Sardis (1517-1648 A.D.) Reformation of the Church Revelation 3:1
Philadelphia (1648-1900 A.D.) “Great Awakening” Missionary Movement Revelation 3:7
Laodicea (1900-present day) Apostasy and Lukewarm Church Revelation 3:14

6. Islam – 622 AD Arab hatred toward Israel. Islam is the ultimate replacement theology. Islam teaches a new form of legalism that is a reaction against the Sonship of the Messiah and a replacement of the promises of Israel to the Arab peoples. Ezekiel 35:1-15 ,Ezekiel 36:2 , Jeremiah 50:7,11

7. The Age will be characterized by general local wars, famine, earthquakes, and false messiahs.

Matthew 24:6-7 “And you will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars; see that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but the end is not yet.”

End Times also called The Last Days, The Beginning of Sorrows

  1. Nation against Nation, Kingdom against Kingdom -Major world wide conflict that begin the End Times or Last Days: World War I & II (1914 ,1939) Matthew 24:7
  2. Both World Wars had major Jewish implications, The Holocaust, & Zionist Movement
  3. State of Israel is established in 1948. Israel is established as a secular nation in unbelief for a future judgment known as a Time of Jacob’s Trouble, The Bibles speaks of a great gathering of Gentile Armies against Jerusalem. If this is true then the return of Israel in 1948 is a significant fulfillment of Bible prophecy. Ezekiel 20:33-35 , Ezekiel 22:17 , Zephaniah 2:1
  4. Jerusalem the capitol of Israel is under Jewish control (1967) Daniel 9:27 , Matthew 24:15 2 Thessalonians 2:3 , Revelation 11:2

PRESENT DAY

Israel negotiates peace with Arab neighbors -(This sets the stage for the Non-Arab invasion of Ezekiel 38 , where Arab nations will not be involved in this conflict because of the peace treaty.) Non Arab nations will come against Israel.

FUTURE EVENTS

  1. A Peace treaty with the Arab states will lead into non-Arab conflict involving an invasion of Israel Ezekiel 38 (Rosh-Russia) (Cush-Ethiopia) (Meshech-Moscow) (Libya-Put) (Tubal-Tubalsk,Siberia) (Gomer-Germany) (Persia-Iran) (Togarmah-Armenia)
  2. The One World Government will be established- (One Horn) Daniel 7:23
  3. One world government divides into ten kingdoms (Ten Horn) Daniel 7:24a  (Note: The European Union is one of the Ten Toes)
  4. The Rise of Anti-Christ, (Anti-Messiah who opposes the real Messiah) is different from the other nations that ruled the earth. Some believe the Anti-Messiah will serve as a false Messiah for the Jewish People. This is not the case. He is the one world leader who takes over the Jewish Temple and claims himself as God. The Anti-Christ is of Roman origin, the prince of the people who destroyed the city. Daniel 7:24b
  5. Period of peace and false security 3 1/2 year period of false peace for Israel. Turmoil for the rest of the world. 1 Thessalonians 5:1-3
  6. *Blackout Joel 2:31
  7. *Return of Eliyahu HaNavi (Elijah the Prophet) the forerunner of the Messiah. Malachi 4:5-6 , Malachi 3:1 , Isaiah 40:3
  8. *The Third Temple will be restored and sacrifices will be reinstituted at the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. Daniel 9:27 , Isaiah 66:1

*The order of these events are not confirmed until the events work their way out in the future.

 RAPTURE OF THE CONGREGATION OF THE MESSIAH

YESHUAT HASHEM KEHEREF AYINGODS SALVATION COMES IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE.

New Testament Saints – All believers in the Messiah, after the cross. The Church is composed of Believing Jews and Gentiles beginning at Acts Chapter 2 until the Rapture. The fact is that the Messiah can come at any time to gather the New Testament Saints. There are no preconditions for the “catching away of believers”. If Messiah comes in the middle of the tribulation or the end then we would know exactly when he is coming and then we would get ready. The scriptures teach that the Messiah will come secretly before the wrath. The Second Coming is exactly seven years after the signing of the covenant with the Anti-Christ, but the rapture could happen at any moment.

  1. The Rapture can come at any moment, Matthew 24:42,44 , Luke 12:35
  2. Mansions are being prepared for believers John 14:1-3
  3. Believers will meet the Messiah in the air (dead ones will rise first) 1Thessalonians 4:13-18
  4. Believers receive glorified bodies 1 Corinthians 15:50-58
  5. Believers are delivered from the wrath to come 1 Thessalonians 1:9-10
  6. Yeshua will come secretly before the wrath Luke 21:36 , 1 Thessalonians 5:1-10
  7. Shofar (Trumpet) of Righteousness blown 1 Corinthians 15:52
  8. There are normal conditions on the earth Matthew 24:38-44

(Note that the Church is not mentioned at anytime during the Wrath in the book of Revelations, The church is heavily mentioned during the first three chapters, and not again until Revelation. 19:11-16. Tribulation Saints are all believer who accept the Messiah Yeshua after the church is raptured.) There are believers present during the entire tribulation. In fact the purpose of the tribulation is to bring people to faith by means of God’s wrath, and cause them to cry out the Messiah. The Church is not mentioned in any tribulation passage. The elect, believers, tribulation saints who come to Messiah after the rapture exist, but the Church is not mentioned in any passage.

BEMA SEAT JUDGMENT FOR CHURCH SAINTS ONLY FOR REWARDS

Believers will be judged. Not for their sins, because our sins were judged on the cross. We are judged for our works done in the body. See The Seven Significant Judgments for details about the judgments of God. Our works will be judged at the Bema. The Bema is the term for the Judgment Seat. In the synagogue the Bema is the raised platform in the center of the synagogue where the Torah is read. Messiah will be at the Bema to judge our works.

  1. An accounting of our works will be given Romans 14:10-12
  2. Basis of this judgment 2 Corinthians 5:10
  3. Bad works are burned 1 Corinthians 3:10-15

  3. Crown of Righteousness 2 Timothy 4:7-8
  4. Crown of Life James 1:12 , Revelation 2:10
  5. Crown of Glory 1 Peter 5:2-4

SERMONS OF CHARLES SPURGEON

Morning

“Salt without prescribing how much.”
Ezra 7:22

Salt was used in every offering made by fire unto the Lord, and from its preserving and purifying properties it was the grateful emblem of divine grace in the soul. It is worthy of our attentive regard that, when Artaxerxes gave salt to Ezra the priest, he set no limit to the quantity, and we may be quite certain that when the King of kings distributes grace among his royal priesthood, the supply is not cut short by him. Often are we straitened in ourselves, but never in the Lord. He who chooses to gather much manna will find that he may have as much as he desires. There is no such famine in Jerusalem that the citizens should eat their bread by weight and drink their water by measure. Some things in the economy of grace are measured; for instance our vinegar and gall are given us with such exactness that we never have a single drop too much, but of the salt of grace no stint is made, “Ask what thou wilt and it shall be given unto thee.” Parents need to lock up the fruit cupboard, and the sweet jars, but there is no need to keep the salt-box under lock and key, for few children will eat too greedily from that. A man may have too much money, or too much honour, but he cannot have too much grace. When Jeshurun waxed fat in the flesh, he kicked against God, but there is no fear of a man’s becoming too full of grace: a plethora of grace is impossible. More wealth brings more care, but more grace brings more joy. Increased wisdom is increased sorrow, but abundance of the Spirit is fulness of joy. Believer, go to the throne for a large supply of heavenly salt. It will season thine afflictions, which are unsavoury without salt; it will preserve thy heart which corrupts if salt be absent, and it will kill thy sins even as salt kills reptiles. Thou needest much; seek much, and have much.

Evening

“I will make thy windows of agates.”
Isaiah 54:12

The church is most instructively symbolized by a building erected by heavenly power, and designed by divine skill. Such a spiritual house must not be dark, for the Israelites had light in their dwellings; there must therefore be windows to let the light in and to allow the inhabitants to gaze abroad. These windows are precious as agates: the ways in which the church beholds her Lord and heaven, and spiritual truth in general, are to be had in the highest esteem. Agates are not the most transparent of gems, they are but semi-pellucid at the best:

“Our knowledge of that life is small,

Our eye of faith is dim.”

Faith is one of these precious agate windows, but alas! it is often so misty and beclouded, that we see but darkly, and mistake much that we do see. Yet if we cannot gaze through windows of diamonds and know even as we are known, it is a glorious thing to behold the altogether lovely One, even though the glass be hazy as the agate. Experience is another of these dim but precious windows, yielding to us a subdued religious light, in which we see the sufferings of the Man of Sorrows, through our own afflictions. Our weak eyes could not endure windows of transparent glass to let in the Master’s glory, but when they are dimmed with weeping, the beams of the Sun of Righteousness are tempered, and shine through the windows of agate with a soft radiance inexpressibly soothing to tempted souls. Sanctification, as it conforms us to our Lord, is another agate window. Only as we become heavenly can we comprehend heavenly things. The pure in heart see a pure God. Those who are like Jesus see him as he is. Because we are so little like him, the window is but agate; because we are somewhat like him, it is agate. We thank God for what we have, and long for more. When shall we see God and Jesus, and heaven and truth, face to face?

ALERT ALERT ALERT

JESUS IN THE GARDEN OF GETHSEMANE

(Early this morning, December 13, 2012, the Lord has awoken me to this study and I am to share with you below!!!  I was given a vision long ago of what was coming upon this earth!  A more recent one concerns America.  I am not released to give the details; but to share this point: America will fall! She has TURNED her back on God.  HE is NOT going to “tolerate” it anymore.  WARNING:  If, America does not get on her knees, NOW, and Truly REPENT of ALL her sins; JUDGEMENT will fall when you least expect it.  Just as YEW-AH dealt with the House of Israel-so too, He shall deal with America.  The CHURCH as a whole “Does Not”, I repeat, “Does Not” replace Israel(do you understand? I am speaking to the CHURCH)!!!  God has a Sovereign Covenant with Israel and Jesus Christ has Sovereign Covenant with the Church.  YEW-AH has given us every chance; He’s done All Points Bulletins- and still the Church continues in false doctrine, teachings, misreadings,  false prophets and blasphemy!  CHURCH, do not think for a moment this is not for real or think highly of yourselves(Gal. 6:7 Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.) Be a Bearean (Acts 17:10-11)- search the scriptures for YOURSELVES; do not take my word for it–seek God’s Word and His Holy Spirit!  (Mt. 7-For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.)  My spirit weighs heavy and America is about to be hit with the third mountain; our reprieve is up and I am saddened to no end! Yet, YEW-AH is in control and discipline and justice is righteous! Amen.  {John 16 All- 

1“All this I have told you so that you will not go astray. 2They will put you out of the synagogue; in fact, a time is coming when anyone who kills you will think he is offering a service to God. 3They will do such things because they have not known the Father or me. 4I have told you this, so that when the time comes you will remember that I warned you. I did not tell you this at first because I was with you.

The Work of the Holy Spirit

5“Now I am going to him who sent me, yet none of you asks me, ‘Where are you going?’ 6Because I have said these things, you are filled with grief. 7But I tell you the truth: It is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Counselor will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you. 8When he comes, he will convict the world of guilta in regard to sin and righteousness and judgment: 9in regard to sin, because men do not believe in me; 10in regard to righteousness, because I am going to the Father, where you can see me no longer; 11and in regard to judgment, because the prince of this world now stands condemned.

12“I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear. 13But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. 14He will bring glory to me by taking from what is mine and making it known to you. 15All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will take from what is mine and make it known to you.

16“In a little while you will see me no more, and then after a little while you will see me.”

Jesus’ Spirit is heavy as He prays to Father YEW-AH 

Matthew 26:36-46 Then Jesus went with his disciples to a place called Gethsemane, and he said to them, “Sit here while I go over there and pray.” 37 He took Peter and the two sons of Zebedee along with him, and he began to be sorrowful and troubled. 38 Then he said to them, “My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death. Stay here and keep watch with me.” 39 Going a little farther, he fell with his f ace to the ground and prayed, “My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will.” 40 Then he returned to his disciples and found them sleeping. “Could you men not keep watch with me for one hour?” he asked Peter. 41 “Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the body is weak.” 42 He went away a second time and prayed, “My Father, if it is not possible for this cup to be taken away unless I drink it, may your will be done.” 43 When he came back, he again found them sleeping, because their eyes were heavy. 44 So he left them and went away once more and prayed the third time, saying the same thing. 45 Then he returned to the disciples and said to them, “Are you still sleeping and resting? Look, the hour is near, and the Son of Man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. 46 Rise, let us go! Here comes my betrayer!

Luke 22:39-46 Jesus went out as usual to the Mount of Olives, and his disciples followed him. 40 On reaching the place, he said to them, “Pray that you will not fall into temptation.” 41 He withdrew about a stone’s throw beyond them, knelt down and prayed, 42 “Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.” 43 An angel from heaven appeared to him and strengthened him. 44 And being in anguish, he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground. 45 When he rose from prayer and went back to the disciples, he found them asleep, exhausted from sorrow. 46 “Why are you sleeping?” he asked them. “Get up and pray so that you will not fall into temptation.”

Mark 14:32-42 They went to a place called Gethsemane, and Jesus said to his disciples, “Sit here while I pray.” 33 He took Peter, James and John along with him, and he began to be deeply distressed and troubled. 34 “My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death,” he said to them. “Stay here and keep watch.” 35 Going a little farther, he fell to the ground and prayed that if possible the hour might pass from him. 36 “Abba, Father,” he said, “everything is possible for you. Take this cup from me. Yet not what I will, but what you will.” 37 Then he returned to his disciples and found them sleeping. “Simon,” he said to Peter, “are you asleep? Could you not keep watch for one hour? 38 Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the body is weak.” 39 Once more he went away and prayed the same thing. 40 When he came back, he again found them sleeping, because their eyes were heavy. They did not know what to say to him. 41 Returning the third time, he said to them, “Are you still sleeping and resting? Enough! The hour has come. Look, the Son of Man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. 42 Rise! Let us go! Here comes my betrayer!”

GEORGE WASHINGTON PRAYING FOR “THIS NATION”.

PS. 122:6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: “May those who love you be secure.

We are mandated to Pray for the Peace of Israel!!!

(Romans 11)

Israel’s Rejection not Complete nor Final

11:1 So I ask, God has not rejected his people, has he? Absolutely not! For I too am an Israelite, a descendant of Abraham, from the tribe of Benjamin.

11:2 God has not rejected his people whom he foreknew! Do you not know what the scripture says about Elijah, how he pleads with God against Israel? 11:3 “Lord, they have killed your prophetsthey have demolished your altars; I alone am left and they are seeking my life!

11:4 But what was the divine response to him? “I have kept for myself seven thousand people who have not bent the knee to Baal.”

11:5 So in the same way at the present time there is a remnant chosen by grace. 11:6 And if it is by grace, it is no longer by works, otherwise grace would no longer be grace.

11:7 What then? Israel failed to obtain what it was diligently seeking, but the elect obtained it. The rest were hardened, 11:8 as it is written,

God gave them a spirit of stuporeyes that would not see and ears that would not hear, to this very day.”

11:9 And David says,

Let their table become a snare and trapa stumbling block and a retribution for them;

11:10 let their eyes be darkened so that they may not see, and make their backs bend continually.”

11:11 I ask then, they did not stumble into an irrevocable fall, did they? Absolutely not! But by their transgression salvation has come to the Gentiles, to make Israel jealous. 11:12 Now if their transgression means riches for the world and their defeat means riches for the Gentiles, how much more will their full restoration bring?

11:13 Now I am speaking to you Gentiles. Seeing that I am an apostle to the Gentiles, I magnify my ministry, 11:14 if somehow I could provoke my people to jealousy and save some of them. 11:15 For if their rejection is the reconciliation of the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead? 11:16 If the first portion of the dough offered is holy, then the whole batch is holy, and if the root is holy, so too are the branches.

11:17 Now if some of the branches were broken off, and you, a wild olive shoot, were grafted in among them and participated in the richness of the olive root, 11:18 do not boast over the branches. But if you boast, remember that you do not support the root, but the root supports you.

11:19 Then you will say, “The branches were broken off so that I could be grafted in.” 11:20 Granted! They were broken off because of their unbelief, but you stand by faith. Do not be arrogant, but fear! 11:21 For if God did not spare the natural branches, perhaps he will not spare you.

11:22 Notice therefore the kindness and harshness of God—harshness toward those who have fallen, but God’s kindness toward you, provided you continue in his kindness; otherwise you also will be cut off.

11:23 And even they—if they do not continue in their unbelief—will be grafted in, for God is able to graft them in again. 11:24 For if you were cut off from what is by nature a wild olive tree, and grafted, contrary to nature, into a cultivated olive tree, how much more will these natural branches be grafted back into their own olive tree?

11:25 For I do not want you to be ignorant of this mystery, brothers and sisters, so that you may not be conceited: A partial hardening has happened to Israel until the full number of the Gentiles has come in. 11:26 And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written:

The Deliverer will come out of Zion; he will remove ungodliness from Jacob.

11:27 And this is my covenant with themwhen I take away their sins.”

11:28 In regard to the gospel they are enemies for your sake, but in regard to election they are dearly loved for the sake of the fathers. 11:29 For the gifts and the call of God are irrevocable. 11:30 Just as you were formerly disobedient to God, but have now received mercy due to their disobedience, 11:31 so they too have now been disobedient in order that, by the mercy shown to you, they too may now receive mercy. 11:32 For God has consigned all people to disobedience so that he may show mercy to them all.

11:33 Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how fathomless his ways!

11:34 For who has known the mind of the Lordor who has been his counselor?

11:35 Or who has first given to Godthat God needs to repay him?

11:36 For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever! Amen.

Psalm 95

New International Version (NIV)

Psalm 95

Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord;
let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation.
Let us come before him with thanksgiving
and extol him with music and song.

For the Lord is the great God,
the great King above all gods.
In his hand are the depths of the earth,
and the mountain peaks belong to him.
The sea is his, for he made it,
and his hands formed the dry land.

Come, let us bow down in worship,
let us kneel before the Lord our Maker;
for he is our God
and we are the people of his pasture,
the flock under his care.

Today, if only you would hear his voice,
“Do not harden your hearts as you did at Meribah,[a]
as you did that day at Massah[b] in the wilderness,
where your ancestors tested me;
they tried me, though they had seen what I did.
10 For forty years I was angry with that generation;
I said, ‘They are a people whose hearts go astray,
and they have not known my ways.’
11 So I declared on oath in my anger,
‘They shall never enter my rest.’”

Christ will return- A vision of heaven

GLORY OF MY LORD

GLORY OF MY LORD

Christ will return!

A vision of heaven:

Now I saw heaven opened, and a white horse was standing there. And the one sitting on the horse was named Faithful and True. For he judges fairly and then goes to war. His eyes were bright like flames of fire, and on his head were many crowns. A name was written on him, and only he knew what it meant. He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and his title was the Word of God.

Revelation 19:11-13 NLT

Crown Him with many crowns, the Lamb upon His throne; Hark! how the heavenly anthem drowns all music but is own. Awake, my soul, and sing of Him who died for thee, and hail Him as they matchless King through all eternity.

Crown Him with Many Crowns,
Matthew Bridges (1800-1894) 

Crown Him with Many Crowns

Matthew Bridges became a convert to Roman Catholicism at the age of forty-eight and published this hymn three years later under the title “The Song of the Seraphs.” Godfrey Thring, an Anglican clergyman, added several stanzas to the hymn about thirty years later, with Bridges’s approval. So a Roman Catholic layman and an Anglican cleric, who probably never met, were coauthors of a hymn about heaven, where Christians of every tribe and tongue, as well as of every denomination, will crown Him Lord of all.

One of the aspects that Godfrey Thring felt was missing in the original was a stanza on the Resurrection, and so it was added. “His glories now we sing who died and rose on high, who died, eternal life to bring, and lives, that death may die.”Christ will return
