I am humbled when I consider how YHVH has privileged me in this day and hour to know both who I am and what time it is. Living in a generation where counting to three has proven to be difficult, we have managed to effectively get wrong the one sign the Messiah has given to a wicked and adulterous generation. (Matt. 16:4) The sign of yet another prophet, Jonah. Whose life was a prophetic picture of what the Messiah would go through. From sleeping on the boat during the storm to spending three days and three nights in a place associated with Sheol. We have not only observed the wrong day, but the wrong feast. Yet, this day Yah is opening the eyes of those who have a love for the truth. Whereas through time, bits and pieces of the ancient paths have been metriculating through various individuals we are now beginning to see the flood gates of information opening. As knowledge is increasing and men going to and fro the lines are being drawn and as it was in the wilderness, those who will stand with the Lord will be the remnant and not the majority.
This year our brother Judah will celebrate 50 years of Jerusalem being in the hands of Israel this Passover, and 70 years of being in the land that was promised to our forefather Abraham. The name which was fittingly chosen for this land which is called Israel was given to Jacob by the Almighty. (Gen. 32:28) Who in turn named this name upon Joseph’s two children Ephraim and Manasseh. (Gen. 48:16) This fiftieth year celebration is not only a Jubilee for Judah, but it is also a Jubilee for the ten lost tribes who are the bearers of the name, Israel. The name that was given to them by Jacob and in this day they who were scattered and lost are now being set free by the Gospel that was sent specifically to them. (Matt. 15:24) So as promised in Gen. 15:13 now is the time that YHVH is ready to grant us freedom from the servitude and affliction that has been 400 years accomplished, and a transfer of wealth is going to take place, just as it did in the physical Egypt, so shall it be in the spiritual one. The nation responsible for such affliction is going to experience judgment, and for that reason we should be making sure that we have taken off the pagan garments that we have sheltered ourselves with for so many years, and begin to yoke ourselves to the truth of Yah’s word. Even as Messiah delivered Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego who were, due to captivity, clothed in the clothing of their captors, thrown into a fiery furnace yet experienced no harm to themselves, but found themselves purged of the garments that clothed them of sorts in a consuming fire found themselves purged of the pagan attire, and found unharmed from the furnace, but to the wicked it shall not be so, they shall be consumed. (Dan. 3)
Now, many of us have been told the truth and due to the power of tradition we continue to wear the pagan garments of Easter (Asherah) and Christmas (Baal), while others of us hungry for the truth find ourselves conflicted and slow of heart to change. Nevertheless, scripture makes it clear that those who will escape in this hour are not simply going to acknowledge the truth, but love it. To love it means to live by it, and because of the passion we have for it we are willing to throw away those singed garments desiring rather to be adorned in the apparel chosen for us by the Almighty. I didn’t say it would be easy and like the three Hebrew boys mentioned earlier it will be a narrow walk which will bring about scorn and ridicule until YHVH openly rewards you with victory for your faithfulness to him. As we read in Revelation many will rejoice at your demise, again only to have the Almighty raise you up in victory.(Rev. 11) So, how then shall you live realizing these things? Well, scripture says it best and I will leave this article with such words,
He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie. (Rev 22:11-15)
