Jesus said, “Take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with …the cares of this life, and so that day come upon you in unawareness. For as a snare it will come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch therefore, and pray always, that you may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Adam.” In Matthew 24:21 he says the end time will be a time of Tribulationnot seen since the beginning of the world unto this time nor ever shall be again.
In the Book of Deuteronomy 4:29-31, Moses says when you see these things happening, “If from there you shall seek the LORD your God, you shall find Him, if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul. When you are in tribulation, and all these things are come upon you, even in the latter days, if you turn to the LORD your God and will be obedient to His voice; (For the LORD your God is a merciful God;) He will not forsake you, neither destroy you, nor forget the Covenant of your fathers which He swore to them.”
and a time to every purpose under heaven:” (Eccl 3:1)
Ever since the foundation of the world, there has been a set time for everything in the heavens. This is fairly common knowledge, as there are apps that can show you what the sky looked like on any given date. Just like the Moon, planets, & stars follow a certain path in the sky and never deviate from it regardless of the year of their appearance, the same is done on Earth by those of God.
“A time to be born & a time to die…
…a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which has been planted;” (Eccl 3:2)
The Prophets of God have always come at a certain time, and that time has always been the perfect time of their appearance on the stage of history. When they have proclaimed God’s Word, they have both planted the Good Seed in the minds of those who hear & plucked up the false grains grown from bad seed. (see Matt 13) Those announcing the Righteous Message of God do so at the perfecttime and then leave when their time is done.
Likewise, the celestial bodies in the sky appear at their proper time and afterward disappear. Recently there have been some amazing shows in the skies, or heavens, involving the Sun, Moon, & Stars because they were set in motion long ago to appear now. The same is being done on Earth, for now is the time!
Many believe that Jesus physically resurrected after he was crucified. However, the Apostle Phillip says, “Those who say that the master/teacher first died and then rose up are in error, for he first arose and then died. If someone does not first attain to the resurrection, wouldn’t that person die? As God lives, that one would be dead already.” The Gospel of Phillip verse 15
Paul writes in his Epistle to the Ephesians, “But God, who is rich in mercy, for His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in sins, has quickened/awakened us together with Christ (by grace/purpose you are saved); and has raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in/with Christ Jesus;” Ephesians 2:4-6
John wrote in Revelation, “And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and first begotten of the dead.” Rev 1:5
“Proclaim Liberty thro’ all the Land to all the Inhabitants thereof…”
This proclamation is etched on what is known as the “symbol of American Independence” – the Liberty Bell housed in Philadelphia, the City of “Brotherly Love.” But where does this saying come from?
It is a quote from Biblical Scripture, Leviticus 25:10 pertaining to the Jubilee called for by God after He brought the House of Israel out of their oppression in Egypt…
Exodus from Egypt
“For the LORD our God, it is He that brought us up and our fathers out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage, and which did those great signs in our sight, and preserved us in all the way wherein we went, and among all the people through whom we passed:” Josh 24:17
Jesus said we should pray in this manner: My Father who is in heaven; Holy is Your Name, Your Kingdom come, Your Will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven…”
If you’ve seen our presentation on The Firmament, you know there are numbers and signs contained in the two greatest bodies we see in the heavens, the Sun and the Moon, relating to their diameters in relation to the two great structures in God’s Word, Noah’s Ark and the Ark of the Covenant. These contain measures only the Creator could have known from the very foundation of creation. These two heavenly bodies will be the stars of a great show coming soon!
“Gather My Holy Ones/Elect together to Me; those that will make a Covenant with Me by an offering. And the heavens shall declare His righteousness: for God Himself is Judge. Hear, O My people, and I will speak; O Israel, and I will testify before you: I am God, even your God. Offer to God thanksgiving; and pay your vows to the most High: And call upon Me in the Day of Tribulation: I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me.” Psalm 50
As of 2005 54% (3.6 billion people) of the world’s population considered themselves adherents of an “Abrahamic religion.” Christianity being the largest at 33%, Islam second at 21% and Judaism at 0.02%. All “Abrahamic religions” claim a direct lineage to the Biblical Patriarch, Abraham.
Jesus said, If you are the children of Abraham, you would do the works of Abraham. So let’s see how well connected these “religions” really are to Abraham!
“Let us therefore be in awe/reverence, lest a promise being left us of entering into His Rest, any of you should come short of it… There remains, therefore, a keeping of a Sabbath to the people of God.” Hebrews 4
Many argue that the day of rest called for by God is Saturday (the seventh day of the week) or Sunday (the first day of the week). God called for His people to keep the weekly Sabbath, the seventh day, as a token to remember the Sabbath Day to keep it holy unto Him. But the true Sabbath is much bigger than that. It is written, “Don’t be ignorant of the one thing: One day to the LORD is as a thousand years” (2 Peter 3:8), and “in six days, that is six thousand years all things will be accomplished” (Barnabus 13:4-5). Genesis 2 tells us that God finished His work on the sixth day and on the seventh day He rested and sanctified that day to be kept to Him.
