We’re clicking along at a rapid pace, most folks are blissfully unaware of the eternal timeclock and what’s transpiring in front of our eyes.
As we read in Genesis, Jubilees, Enoch and Esdras, the blasphemies of Noahs time are with us today. They are evolving and ultimately will have their culmination very shortly. The study of these things is for another video, today we cover the warning signs to the off ramp.
There’s an oft abused scripture found in Luke 21:29, with regards to the fig tree. They typically read into it that “israel” is the fig tree. Although that’s used in scripture, read it literally and in the context of the previous 23 verses, I’ve placed them here for your reference and then bolded vs. 29.
6“The time is coming when what you see here will be totally destroyed — not a single stone will be left standing!” 7They asked him, “Rabbi, if this is so, when will these events take place? And what sign will show that they are about to happen?” 8He answered, “Watch out! Don’t be fooled! For many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am he!’ and, ‘The time has come!’ Don’t go after them. 9And when you hear of wars and revolutions, don’t panic. For these things must happen first, but the end will not follow immediately.”
10Then he told them, “Peoples will fight each other, nations will fight each other, 11there will be great earthquakes, there will be epidemics and famines in various places, and there will be fearful sights and great signs from Heaven. 12But before all this, they will arrest you and persecute you, handing you over to the synagogues and prisons; and you will be brought before kings and governors. This will all be on account of me, 13but it will prove an opportunity for you to bear witness. 14So make up your minds not to worry, rehearsing your defense beforehand; 15for I myself will give you an eloquence and a wisdom that no adversary will be able to resist or refute. 16You will be betrayed even by parents, brothers, relatives and friends; some of you they will have put to death; 17and everyone will hate you because of me. 18But not a hair of your head will be lost. 19By standing firm you will save your lives.
20“However, when you see Yerushalayim surrounded by armies, then you are to understand that she is about to be destroyed. 21Those in Y’hudah must escape to the hills, those inside the city must get out, and those in the country must not enter it. 22For these are the days of vengeance, when everything that has been written in the Tanakh will come true. 23What a terrible time it will be for pregnant women and nursing mothers! For there will be great distress in the Land and judgment on the people. 24Some will fall by the edge of the sword, others will be carried into all the countries of the Goyim, and Yerushalayim will be trampled down by the Goyim until the age of the Goyim has run its course.
25“There will appear signs in the sun, moon and stars; and on earth, nations will be in anxiety and bewilderment at the sound and surge of the sea, 26as people faint with fear at the prospect of what is overtaking the world; for the powers in heaven will be shaken. 27And then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with tremendous power and glory. 28When these things start to happen, stand up and hold your heads high; because you are about to be liberated!”
29Then he told them a parable: “Look at the fig tree, Indeed, all the trees. 30As soon as they sprout leaves, you can see for yourselves that summer is near. 31In the same way, when you see these things taking place, you are to know that the Kingdom of God is near! 32Yes! I tell you that this people will certainly not pass away before it has all happened. 33Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will certainly not pass away.
What they point to is inaccurate, what our Messiah is saying is that when you see all the signs above, that generation will not pass away before His return.
He also said, I do NOT want you to be caught unaware or fooled. So when anyone says, “you can’t know the time or day” this is true, but you can see the season, and much of this is indeed beginning. If we break it down, here’s the checklist for “end of days” preparation.
Prior to any of this:
- They will arrest you
- They will persecute you
- You will be brought before the rulers
- This is your time to bear witness
- You will be betrayed by family and friends
- Some will be put to death
- Everyone will hate you for the sake of Yeshuah
- You will not be harmed (not a hair of your head will be lost
- Standing firm will save your life.
- Jerusalem will be surrounded by armies
- If you are in the southern kingdom you need to escape to the hills
- If you are in the cities, you must flee to the country
- These are the days of vengeance written in the prophets (tons of references are there)
- You will then begin to see signs in the heavens and sounds from the seas
- Even the powers of heaven will be shaken
Then this happens:
- People will say, that Yeshuah is the Messiah and the time has come, don’t follow them was His instruction.
- Wars and revolutions are normal, don’t panic, it’s just the first indicator
- People/nations will fight each other. The word nations here is ethnicities, not countries.
- Earthquakes all over
- Signs in the heavens
- Fearful sights in the heavens
Then you will see Yeshuah, the Son of Man coming on a cloud with power and glory
This is the checklist, what to look for, notice tons of things happening in the first 15 items, and we are to watch for them, which means (no rapture at that time)…the teaching of a “escape” was created about 200 years ago, until that time, everyone commonly knew they were to be “kept” but not “escape” from the disasters. the only thing we’re free from is the wrath of YaHoVaH and we read of that in Revelation 15:7 and detailed throughout Revelation 16.
5After this I looked, and the sanctuary (that is, the Tent of Witness in heaven) was opened, 6and out of the sanctuary came the seven angels with the seven plagues. They were dressed in clean bright linen and had gold belts around their chests. 7One of the four living beings gave to the seven angels seven gold bowls filled with the fury (wrath) of God, who lives forever and ever.
If you read prior to this verse, you find a great multitude in His presence at the sea of fire and glass. That is the time those that follow our Father and His Messiah are gathered together, not prior, not early, not midway, but everything written in Revelation prior is indeed occurred, and now the wrath of the Father is poured out.
This may not be what your teacher, pastor, minister, chaplain, priest teaches, but it’s plainly found in the scriptures. Pray about it, meditate on it, and let our Father guide you in all truth.
