Tribulation!

We have been in tribulation since the apostles time. 250,000+ are martyred every year. Just a few weeks ago I wrote about the 500 believers were martyred in Africa just for believing in Messiah. As one of the only countries in the world who has not lived through a physical war on their territory, Americans have a strange way of looking at the bible and the tribulation it speaks of. Believers elsewhere around the world know that we have been, as John said, Rev 1:9 I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Messiah Yahshua, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of Yahweh, and for the testimony of Messiah Yahshua.

Messiah talks in Matthew about the birth pangs. As most women know birth pangs continually get closer together and more intense. This has been happening the past 2000 years and will continue until He returns. We are at the point now that where those birth pangs are right on top of each other. We are there, very close. Millions upon millions have been killed in these past 2000 years, starting with Yahshua and Stephen. Those are the ones in Revelation crying out to Yahweh, when will justice be done? Revelation is the key to understanding the entire Bible. It helps us to understand what was going to happen in the last 2000 years of this time of s.a.tan. We find out what the evil one was going to do to Yahweh's people. It was a warning of what all of us were going to have to live through and how we would get through it or maybe even be martyred.

That time is almost over. We are at the end. The walls are closing in on believers everywhere and should He not return soon there will be none left that know His Name. Even now there is only a small remnant as most of the world is after worldly things; money, career, other religions, fame and fortune, selves, UFO's and the like. There are not many that spend their time chewing on Yahweh's Word and living their lives for Him. Churches all over the world are being used for other things, even other religions. Most of the so-called Christian world, in a poll by Barna, does not believe that the Bible is 100% correct. Much of the so-called Christian world believes in evolution and questions the truth of the Messiah and His resurrection.

So how many true believers are there? I have no clue. But He does. He knows those who as in John 14:21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.

I do know though that things are getting closer than ever before. As He said, we will know the signs of His coming. They are all around us. Israel is a nation and surrounded by enemies who want her gone. Jews are looking for their Messiah and, praise Him, many of those Jews are now believing that Messiah has come in the Name of Yahshua. It is almost time for Him to return and for them to see who it is they pierced. The Jews Day of Atonement is not far away and they will mourn over their great mistake.

There are 3 of Yahweh's set-apart feast days to yet happen. They all fore-tell of the end of the end.

Feast of Trumpets - that last great Trump will sound and Yahshua will come for the Day of Yahweh! This is a great and terrible day for the whole world. Many will try to hide as the wrath of Yahweh is poured upon the earth and true believers will be protected by the Messiah that they loved and obeyed.

Day of Atonement - the scales will come off of the Jews whose eyes have been sealed by Yahweh in order for the news of Messiah to go out to the gentile world. They will see the one they pierced and go into deep mourning and sorrow.

Feast of Tabernacles - Shalom and the true peace of Yahweh will be with us in our rest for all eternity. We will make our tents and be with Him. HalleluYAH!

Will it be this year during the feasts, next or the next I don't know but Yahweh goes on His time, not the worlds. It will be according to His set-apart Feasts that He finishes His great work!

Are you ready? Are you immersed in Him? Are you set-apart? I pray you are. If not, the time is almost gone for you to belong to Him. The road is narrow, and hard, for those that follow Him. I hope you are on that road before it's too late.

The NEW Covenant, and The New Covenant "Jew"(Brethren of The Messiah)
------------
Jer 31:31-37 "Behold, the days come, says YHWH, that I will make a NEW COVENANT with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: NOT ACCORDING TO THE COVENANT THAT I MADE WITH THEIR FATHERS IN THE TIME THAT I TOOK THEM BY THE HAND TO BRING THEM OUT OF THE LAND OF EGYPT FOR THEY BROKE THAT COVENANT, although I was an husband unto them, says YHWH: (Thankfully no longer natural "fathers" but YHWH, "Our Father" in "the NEWness of The Spirit not the letter")

But this shall be the NEW covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, says YHWH, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts(not in stone, but in their heart consciousness); and I will be their Elohim, and they shall be MY people. ("Come Out of her, MY people"! Come out of this world and it's systems of religion)

And every man shall no longer teach his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, "Know YHWH", for they shall all know ME, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, says YHWH: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.

Thus says YHWH, which gives the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which divides the sea when the waves thereof roar; YHWH of hosts is HIS name:

If those ordinances depart from before ME, says YHWH, then the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before ME for ever.

Thus says YHWH; If Heaven above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth searched out beneath, I will also cast off all the seed of Israel for all that they have done, says YHWH."
------------

The NEW Covenant established The Truth that, "he is not a Jew who is one outwardly, whose circumcision is that of the flesh, he is a Jew who is one inwardly, whose circumcision is of the heart" as he was immersed in, of, by and through The Holy, Set Apart Spirit that is of The ONE and Only True G-D, Father(Creator) of ALL. And all gentile NEW Covenant Believers are "grafted into The Good olive tree", they are of The NEW Covenant Jews.......

And The NEW Covenant Israel?

"A Holy nation".......

Heavenly and Spiritual, not earthly liken unto the wicked worldly nations!

"A nation of kings and priests" indeed and Truth, and all New Covenant Believers are "strangers and pilgrims on the earth" whose "citizenship (Life) is in Heaven".......

They are not of this wicked, evil world and it's systems of religion because they have taken heed unto The Call of The Only True G-D, Father (Creator) of ALL to "Come out of her, MY people".......

The NEW Covenant Believers are those who follow The Messiah for they have taken heed unto The Call to "Come Out" of this wicked world, and they have have "set their affections on things above, Heavenly things"....... No longer are they of those "whose god is their bellies, and whose glory is in their shame, because they mind earthly things". They are no longer of those who "love this world and their own life in, and of it"....... (continued)

Sadly, there are multitudes who profess a belief in The Messiah with their mouth only for they are "friends of this world" because they "love this world and it's things" ;-( And so it is that they "love their own life in and of the world" ;-( Such is not The Will of "Our Father" .......

And those who do not seek and desire to do The Will of "Our Father" and "Come Out" of this world(babylon) will hear those woe filled words, "Depart from Me all you workers of iniquity" because "the WHOLE world is under the control of the evil one" indeed and Truth.......

Thankfully The NEW Covenant Believers, The Brethren of The Messiah, have their "citizenship(Life) in Heaven" for they are "A Holy nation" of "kings and priests", all of whom are thankful that, that which was "decaying and waxing old" DID "vanish away" with the destruction of the natural, earthly kingdom centered in jerusalem. The old covenant did indeed vanish away, The NEW Covenant WAS and IS!

At the time the old covenant vanished away "THY Kingdom" DID "Come" and IS, for The Messiah delivered up The Kingdom unto His G-D and Father(Creator), and The Kingdom of The Only True G-D in Heaven WAS, IS, and ALWAYS WILL BE.......

No longer old, natural, earthly and temporal, The Kingdom of The Only True G-D WAS, IS, and ALWAYS WILL BE NEW, Spiritual, Heavenly and Eternal.......

And the True Hebrew(one from beyond) is The New Covenant Jew(Brother of The Messiah)!

And so it is that yesterday, today, and if there be a tomorrow, that "the chosen ones", "the elect", The NEW Covenant Believer, the Spiritual Jew, "The Brethren of The Messiah", continue to "fight the good fight of Faith" as they but seek and desire that which is NEW, Spiritual, Heavenly and Eternal.......

So it is they "forsake all" as they "suffer the loss of all things".......

Father Help! and HE does.......

So it is that The Brethren of The Messiah rejoice!

Giving All Thanks, Praise and Glory Unto The ONE and Only True Living G-D, Father(Creator) of ALL.......

Peace, in spite of the dis-eases(lies) that are of this wicked world and it's systems of religion, for "the WHOLE(not just a portion) world is under the control of the evil one" indeed and Truth.......

Truth IS, a lie is not.......

Abide in the The Truth.......
