For the last 10 years I have watched so many people get caught up in focusing the same issues as the pharisees did two thousand years ago.
My last two teachings address a couple of issues and dangers that I have seen between the different camps of Believers in Messiah, mostly regarding doctrinal differences and argument between them and how they handle them.
But today I’m going to expose another issue I am seeing especially among Christians regarding the End Time signs and how much Focus is put on instilling fear into people as we see these things unravel.
Remember the Holy Spirit / Ruach HaQuodesh will always set off the alarm bell in your mind and heart when you are obedient and completely and utterly dependent on Him.
This teaching is not to bash those who are getting caught up in this….
In fact, it is quite the opposite, this is done in love and concern.
Enjoy the teaching
LOOKING INTO THE SKY
” Yeshua answered, ‘ you don’t need to know the date or the times; the Father has kept these under his own authority. ” Acts 1:7 CJB
Besides the calendar dates for our biblical feasts, when it comes to events in the history and the future of the human race, Hashem has His calendar in place.
There are times and dates He has set that have not yet come into being, and one of the most dissected and debated of all is the return of Messiah and the end of this age.
These are set by Hashem’s authority and Yeshua tells us explicitly, ” It is not for us to Know !! ”
At the time of Yeshua’s ascension, the tallimidim / disciples were looking up to heaven, and suddenly two men, dressed in white, appeared to them. ” Men of Galilee, ” they said, ” Why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Yeshua, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back the same way you have seen Him go into heaven ” Acts 1:11.
This is a glorious certainty.
Yeshua Hamashiach is coming back, BUT HE SAID, “About that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. ” Mark 13 :32 NLV.
Despite the fact that Yeshua is telling us it is not our business to know when He will return, there is incredible curiosity especially among Christians about the time and date.
For many, it has become an unhealthy obsession!!
There are continually analysing sequences of events, applying mathematical formulas and some have even devoted their ministry to becoming experts in Reading ” The signs of the times “.
We can walk into any Christian bookstore and see how this has become a big business! People are following these false prophets and teachers more than they are our Messiah!
If there is a blip in the Middle East, the Prophecy gurus find some way of fitting it into and end times scenario. Lol
There are countless newspaper and magazine articles; tabloid covers, movies, novels and even documentaries with sensational predictions, some with unrestrained Confidence concerning the end of this age.
This has even creeped into the Messianic Jewish community, so many Christians flocking to these fake Jewish prophets like Perry stone and many others.
IT IS UTTER NONSENSE AND A WASTE OF TIME!!!
Rav Saul / Paul writes, ” …. for you know very well that the day of Adonai will come like a thief in the night ” 1st Thessalonians 5:2.
And Yeshua tells, ” you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect Him ” Luke 12: 40.
Our expectation of Messiahs return is vital, but any prediction, speculation or proclamation, especially that which leads others to believe when Messiah is coming, is not only wrong, BUT FORBIDDEN!!
We especially realized this when we see cults like the Jehovah’s Witnesses who predicted Armageddon 9 different times. 1975 was the worst of these predictions as we see in their book which was published in 1967 “Babylon the Great has fallen “, where the Year 1975 was the one chosen for the End of Days.
It is like climbing the tower of Babel and foolishly trying to take from Hashem YHVH what belongs to Him.
All expectations are going to meet with a crashing blow!!
And when this happens many in the flock will fall away most of the time become atheist, this is a great tool the adversary loves to use in order to deceive by creating doubt!!!
” NO ONE KNOWS,” says Yeshua, and Hashem will keep it that way!!
What is in our best interest is to live every day as if Messiah is returning today!!!
Remember 2 things Yeshua said;
” IF YOU LOVE ME KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS “
” KEFA, IF YOU LOVE ME FEED MY SHEEP!!!
Matthew 24 is one of the greatest of End Time instruction and Commands, these signs we are given of the end times are there only to wake us up to fulfill and obey the commands given for the End of Days.
“Go therefore and make disciples of all Nations tribes and tongues baptizing them….”
We’re all disciples and we are all called to do this not just your local pastor or rabbi!!!
Stop worrying about your own situation and start looking at what you are commanded as Kingdom builders!
I always recommend after reading Matthew chapter 24 of all the warnings of the end days read the next chapter 25 to the end verse 46, and really pray for revelation and understanding.
Our Prayer Heavenly Father
I long for the day that every knee will bow and every tongue confess that You are God Echad YHVH ALMIGHTY.
Even though I long for the return of our Messiah, thank You that it will be in Your timing.
I fully trust everything you do is for Your great purpose and for my benefit. Help me and give me the strength to continue and fulfill the purpose of your end time commission.
Thank You Adonai Amein
I pray that our God will continue to Bless all those that help others.
