THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN
Matthew 13:47-52King James Version (KJV) 47 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind: 48 Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away. 49 So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just, 50 And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. 51 Jesus saith unto them, Have ye understood all these things? They say unto him, Yea, Lord. 52 Then said he unto them, Therefore every scribe which is instructed unto the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure things new and old.
We again see that YESHUA is emphasizing that the “Wicked” will be severed from among the just. Not the other way around. It was so important to understand this fact that these parables are given in such away as to touch on to the many facets of the Kingdom. Matthew 13:44 equate the Kingdom as a Great Precious Treasury that one will give everything to obtain. Matthew 13:31 refers to “A Mustard Seed” described as the smallest of seeds which grows to house the birds of the sky. Here, Emmanuel (The Lord with Us) is describing Himself, just as Isaiah does in Isaiah 53:10. Isaiah 54 is declaring The LORD’s Kingdom on Earth and HIS rule. Again, we are with HIM when HE rules the Nations on Earth. Jerusalem will be the capital of the world.
DO YOU HAVE ANY UNDERSTANDING OF THE G_D YOU SAY YOU SERVE?
Another reason people who believe the “Rapture Doctrine” are very fearful of these events that are coming in the Tribulation Period is that the earth is going to be burned up with fire, to purify it as referenced in 2 Peter 3:7-10 and Revelation 8:7. These future prophecies are going to come in the tribulation and many people will perish from this “Judgment of AVINU’’ (Our Father). Many Christians are terrified of this event and they see this as another reason why they should be whisked off the planet to be with The Lord! But I tell you the Truth, this reasoning testifies against the Christian who claims that they are of HaMashiach. It shows to ADONAI that you have NO understanding of WHO HE IS, and NO Faith at all in HIS GRACE towards you, and are DENYING HIS POWER!
2 Timothy 3:5Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) 5 as they retain the outer form of religion but deny its power. Stay away from these people!
Why am I making this charge against the Church? Because just as EL ELYON (GOD MOST HIGH) asked the disciples in the storm “Why are you so Fearful”, I’m asking the Church the same thing? Stop it! Have Faith in The LORD that Loves you and will NOT FORSAKE YOU!
Daniel 3:23-27Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) 23 These three men, Shadrakh, Meishakh and ‘Aved-N’go, fell, bound, into the blazing hot furnace. 24 Suddenly N’vukhadnetzar sprang to his feet. Alarmed, he asked his advisers, “Didn’t we throw three men, bound, into the flames?” They answered the king, “Yes, of course, your majesty.” 25 But he exclaimed, “Look! I see four men, not tied up, walking around there in the flames, unhurt; and the fourth looks like one of the gods!”26 N’vukhadnetzar approached the opening of the blazing hot furnace and said, “Shadrakh! Meishakh! ‘Aved-N’go! You servants of El ‘Elyon! Come out, and come here!” Shadrakh, Meishakh and ‘Aved-N’go emerged from the flames. 27 The viceroys, prefects, governors and royal advisers who were there saw that the fire had had no power on the bodies of these men — not even their hair was singed, their clothes looked the same, and they didn’t smell of fire.
Verse 27 says it all and should be for us a reminder of the Holy Glory and Power of JEHOVAH MIKKODISHKEM (The Lord Who Sanctifies You). “Oh Death where is thy sting”? Oh Fire where is thy Power to Destroy? Fire would answer, “In the Hands of the Terribly Awesome, All Powerful Creator of ALL THINGS, including me”! Could it be that many who claim to follow JEHOVAH NISSI (The Lord My Banner) don’t really have faith in Him or His ability to save. One very important reason this is so, is due to the fact that the Church has been slowly replacing the Truth of YHVH with a Lie, orchestrated by Powers and Principalities that uses the vanity of men to accomplish their plans. This started after Christ ascended off the Earth, and the seed of the messianic church began. Satan has been working to try and thwart the Gospel. Through men, Satan has introduced such things as Ecumenicalism, which allows all sorts of blasphemous things to be taught to accommodate multiple views of doctrine, were created by men and NOT ADONAI. The move by others to join the Christian belief with Muslims, and it goes on and on, without the slightest understanding that, “All who do such things are to be destroyed by “The Fire” that will cleanse the Earth of all Unrighteousness”. Question: How then can the people who attend these institutions of devils, who are far from Torah be saved? Matthew 13:41 makes this very clear, that the church should be following the things of CHRIST who was born Jewish and followed what we call Judaism. The only way is to come out from among this thing called “The Great Whore” of Revelation, or “The End Times Church”. Right now this is what they are trying to bring to pass.
1 Timothy 4:1-3Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) 4 The Spirit expressly states that in the acharit-hayamim some people will apostatize from the faith by paying attention to deceiving spirits and things taught by demons.2 Such teachings come from the hypocrisy of liars whose own consciences have been burned, as if with a red-hot branding iron. 3 They forbid marriage and require abstinence from foods which God created to be eaten with thanksgiving by those who have come to trust and to know the truth.
PLAGUES OF EGYPT OR SIMILAR TO TRIBULATION PERIOD JUDGMENTS
Israel spent a little over 38 years wandering through the desert heading to the Promised Land when the journey should have taken 11 days. They didn’t totally want to submit to the leadership of Moshe who was hand picked by G_D to deliver them, and they still had Egypt within them. This is the same way of thinking that prevails itself with those who claim this “Rapture Doctrine”. They don’t want to be here when all these things happen. The problem is the Teachings of Our LORD shows that we are here during and after the tribulation period. Where were the Children of Israel during G_D’s Judgment on Egypt? Witnessing every plague and avenue of destruction that the LORD was using against Egypt, which demonstrated HIS Authority, Power and Glory to the World. Where the rapture is concerned, EL SHADDAI (Most High G_D) has clearly spoken about what will happen, and HE clearly wanted us, the Chosen, to not be fooled by this or any other doctrine that pretends to be from HIM! I BELIEVE YESHUA! Here is a comparison of what happened to Pharaoh in Egypt and what will happen in the tribulation period.
Exodus 7:8-13 The LORD demonstrates His Power against the Powers of Darkness, and informs Moshe that it will be HIM, The LORD that will Harden Pharaohs heart. The LORD begins with the staff of Moshe that turns into a snake that eats the sorcerers and magicians’ snake two snakes. Pharaoh represents the Devil and the sorcerers the anti Christ and False prophet of the tribulation.
Exodus 7:19-24 The River is turned to Blood. This is the first plague. Rev. 16:3-5 The Sea, Rivers and Streams all turn to Blood. Just like in Egypt expect the death of sea life and a stench that will fill the land. The Egyptian sorcerers replicate the act to show that they too can do miracles. Rev. 13:12-14 The false prophet does the same thing, deceiving by miracles.
Exodus 7: 26 thru 8:11 Frogs are sent (Pestilences) Like Moshe and Aharon, Pharaoh’s magicians and sorcerers replicates what Aharon does by calling up frogs as a demonstration of their Dark Powers. In Revelations. 16: 12-14 Three frogs are released by Satan which are demon spirits. Like the Egyptian sorcerers they are trying to stand against YHVH.
Exodus 8:12-16 Lice are commanded. ADONAI turns up the heat While everything up until this period has been replicated by the Sorcerers of Egypt they could not copy this Act of G_D!
Exodus 8:16-20 Insects are sent. This is when the Hebrews are now being separated by ADONAI from the Egyptians. G_D declares safety for Israel in Goshen. Rev. 9:1-12 describes a similar event where locust are released from the bottomless pit to torment men in the earth, with the exception of those who have “The Seal of G_D” in their foreheads. Note the word “in” their foreheads, instead of “on” their foreheads. This will be our Goshen.
Exodus 9:1-7 Disease on Livestock. This effected their horses, donkeys, camel, cattle and flocks. Again more rotting flesh and stench of carcasses. But the people of JEHOVAH JIREH (The Lord Will Provide) their animals and livelihood was protected. Revelations 6: 5-6 speaks of a similar event to come. The black horse and his scales, given the power to make food scarce, which means an economy in despair.
Exodus 9:8-12 Skin Sores and Blisters decreed. Again sores were on people and animals of Egypt and not G_D’s people. Revelation 16:11 testifies to this happening in the tribulation period to come. It happens to those who are not the people of G_D, but who believe in religion, have the mark of the beast, and will not repented to JEHOVAH TSIDKENU (The Lord Our Righteousness). Question: How could anyone possibly be G_D’s people who believe in this doctrine of demons that is “The Rapture” which at face value opposes what THE LORD has said about HIS Second Coming?
Exodus 9:13-26 Hail, Thunder, and Fire. The people of ADONAI are protected, but people and livestock of Egypt are not. G_D tells Pharaoh that he could have already wiped out him and his officials, but HE was using the Nation to show “That HE is without equal in the Earth” and “To demonstrate HIS Power”. Rev. 16:21 Hail is sent, Rev. 16:18 thunder and a great earthquakes is commanded, and Rev. 8:7 Hailstones and fire where a third of all the trees are burned up. Here we also see many Egyptians believing what the G_D of Moshe says. This is what it will be like during the tribulation when WE will have the opportunity to turn many who haven’t taken the mark to G_D.
Exodus 10:1-15 Invasion of Locust Pharaoh is made hard hearted just like the people in The Book of Revelation that still refuse to repent and worship G_D! We see this in Rev. 16:9-11 where their hard heartedness kept them on the road to destruction. Rev. 9:1-12.
Exodus 10:21-23 Darkness covers Egypt. This not ordinary darkness. It states that YHVH sent them “A darkness so thick, it could be felt”. This is where physics as we know it, didn’t apply or was cancelled by G_D. It could even be another form of darkness that awaits those that are casted out into “outer darkness” as stated by YESHUA Matt. 22:13 and 25:30. Revelations 16:10 speaks of a darkness on those who refuse to repent and Honor G_D in the tribulation.
10. Exodus 11 & 12 ADONAI announces the final Disaster. The Lord visits the Egyptians and destroys all of the firstborn of men and animals, sparing HIS people and preparing them for the journey out of Egypt. The LORD establishes the “Passover” and instructs them on how to observe it from that day forward. (Not THE PAGAN WORSHIP OF EASTER). HE also controls the hearts of the Egyptian people making them give their wealth of gold and silver to the Hebrews.
Remember that the deception leading up to the tribulation period will have many believing a lie. G_D himself will cause many to believe it.
Romans 1:21King James Version (KJV) 21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
2 Thessalonians 2:10-11Complete Jewish Bible (CJB 10 He will enable him to deceive, in all kinds of wicked ways, those who are headed for destruction because they would not receive the love of the truth that could have saved them. 11 This is why God is causing them to go astray, so that they will believe the Lie.
What they should be asking the Ruach HaKodesh at this point, is whether or not this “Rapture” doctrine is that Great Lie that will deceive many in these end times? You can be sure of one thing, that EL OLAM (The Everlasting G_D) be not mocked by unbelief of those who say they are Christians. For ADONAI destroyed the Israelites because of their unbelief and is going to do the same again to the world.
Jude 1:5King James Version (KJV) 5 I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not.
Jude, the brother of Jesus is warning of the thing that The LORD really, really hates….Unbelief of the Believer. This type of person who has knowledge of G_D through the written WORD, and who intellectually understands the Word, studies the Bible, goes to church, volunteers, and is considered a good person, can yet perish by not being saved. Why? “These are the ones who have the Written Word, but not the Living Word. They receive Light, but not Life”. I have met many people who have been baptized three and four times. Who have gone to the altar a great many times to give their lives to Christ. Who are workers in the Church running church programs, on prayer teams, and they are all apostates. Apostasy is a rejection of G_D’s way that HE lays out that leads to HIM and HIS ways, which are not man’s ways! G_D says, ”Here I am, come to me this way”, and an apostate person says, “Okay, but! Let me give you a contemporary example of this.
Leviticus 19:28Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) 28 Don’t cut gashes in your flesh when someone dies or tattoo yourselves; I am Adonai.
Now to many people in the church they can ignore this, because first, it’s the old words of G_D, and secondly, we’re under grace, we don’t have to worry about these things anymore. Wrong and dangerous to the person that believes this way.
Matthew 5:17-19King James Version (KJV) 17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. 18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. 19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
If you want to know how YAHWEH (Lord Jehovah) deals with Apostasy, you only have to look at Judas Escariot, Cain, Balaam and Cora. All were apostates. They all had one are more of these characteristics;
- They harbor ungodliness. Which simply means “someone that is destitute of the Reverential Attitude of AWE about G_D! Like rapture believers who deny that the Power of G_D can protect them during the tribulation period. Or fearful that it won’t.
- They pervert the Grace of G_D. An example of this is “Charities and Churches are promoting the “Brotherhood of Man”. People who are promoting this have rejected John 8:44, Matt. 13:38, 22:18. “All men are NOT brothers. There is the Family of G_D and there are men that are not”.
- They Deny G_D’s appointed Leaders.
First Thessalonians is another Book that the rapture believers use as the basis for their belief.
1 Thessalonians 4:16-18King James Version (KJV) 16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
Here Paul is talking about the people of G_D being removed to be with G_D. This event does happen in The Book of Revelation Chapter 20 where it says:
Revelation 20 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) 20 Next I saw an angel coming down from heaven, who had the key to the Abyss and a great chain in his hand. 2 He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the Devil and Satan [the Adversary], and chained him up for a thousand years. 3 He threw him into the Abyss, locked it and sealed it over him; so that he could not deceive the nations any more until the thousand years were over. After that, he has to be set free for a little while. 4 Then I saw thrones, and those seated on them received authority to judge. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for testifying about Yeshua and proclaiming the Word of God, also those who had not worshipped the beast or its image and had not received the mark on their foreheads and on their hands. They came to life and ruled with the Messiah for a thousand years. 5 (The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were over.) This is the first resurrection. 6 Blessed and holy is anyone who has a part in the first resurrection; over him the second death has no power. On the contrary, they will be cohanim of God and of the Messiah, and they will rule with him for the thousand years.
Noticed what is highlighted. It says, “This is the first resurrection”! This means we were here on earth through the tribulation period. This the event that Paul is referring to in Thessalonians. that final shofar blast/trumpet sound that is the resurrection of the righteous dead, and we who are alive. The ones that are alive proves that the rapture that the church is advocating is not the correct understanding of YESHUA’s second coming. No where does YESHUA ever says that HE will come half way to the earth and meet us in the air. When HE returns HE will return with the Angels of Heaven and rule from the Throne of David! Come Lord Yeshua! Come!
