THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM
How misguided are so many professing Christians in these last days.
They pray for peace in Israel and the nations,
yet that is exactly what the Beast is counting on.
David longed for peace in the land, and through song (Psalm 122),
he urged Israel to pray for peace as they were constantly besieged with battle,-
(all of which was, and still is, a direct link to Israel's disobedience - Numbers 33:50-56).
But in these end of days, to hope and pray for peace in Israel is a huge mistake,
and will only lead many into deception and the coming great apostasy.
Wake up O church!... Wake up and discern the times!
Like lambs to the slaughter are those without understanding,
and the people of Elohim perish for lack thereof!
The Word does not instruct 'us' to pray for the peace of Jerusalem in this day.
Pray for souls in Israel, yes, but not for peace,...
for a false peace is coming, and is the very platform and covenant of the antichrist.
The true peace of Elohim Chayim will not come until the return of Yeshua,
and His Millennial Kingdom upon the earth...
All else is a lie and deception.
- 1 Thessalonians 5 -
3 For when they say, "Peace and safety!"
then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman.
And they shall not escape.
- Matthew 10 -
34 "Do not think that I came to bring peace upon the earth.
I did not come to bring peace but a sword."
- Luke 12 -
49 “I came to send fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled!
50 But I have a baptism to be baptized with, and how distressed I am till it is accomplished!
51 Do you suppose that I came to give peace on earth?
I tell you, not at all, but rather division."
- Matthew 24 -
15 "Therefore when you see the 'abomintaion of desolation', spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place" (whoever reads, let him understand), 16 then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains..... 21 For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be.
22 And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved,
but for the elect's sake those days will be shortened."
- Luke 21 -
20 “But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation is near. 21 Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, let those who are in the midst of her depart, and let not those who are in the country enter her. 22 For these are the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled. 23 But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! For there will be great distress in the land and wrath upon this people. 24 And they will fall by the edge of the sword, and be led away captive into all nations. And Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled."
- Ezekiel 7 -
25 Destruction comes;
they will seek peace, but there shall be none.
- Joel 2 -
"Blow the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in My holy mountain!
Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of Adonai is coming, for it is at hand;
2 A day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness,
like the morning clouds spread over the mountains."
- Amos 8 -
9 "And it shall come to pass in that day," says Adonai Elohim,
"that I will make the sun go down at noon, and I will darken the earth in broad daylight;
10 I will turn your feasts into mourning, and all your songs into lamentation;
I will bring sackcloth on every waist, and baldness on every head;
I will make it like mourning for an only son, and it's end like a bitter day.
11 "Behold the days are coming," says Adonai Elohim,
"that I will send a famine on the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water,
but of hearing the words of Adonai."
- Zechariah 13 -
8 "And it shall come to pass in all the land," says Adonai,
"that two-thirds in it shall be cut off and die"
- Zechariah 14 -
"Behold, the day of Adonai is coming, and your spoil will be divided in your midst.
2 For I will gather all the nations to battle against Jerusalem;
the city shall be taken, the houses rifled, and the women ravished.
Half of the city shall go into captivity"...
(Rev 11... the great city which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt,
where also our Adonai was crucified)
"for all these things must come to pass"
PEACE AND SAFETY
- Jeremiah 6 -
13 “Because from the least of them even to the greatest of them, everyone is given to covetousness; and from the prophet even to the priest, everyone deals falsely.
They have also healed the hurt of My people slightly, saying,
‘Peace, peace!’ when there is no peace."
Think about this; it is reported that some 6 million Jews were killed in the holocaust,...
and speaking specifically of Israel in the coming tribulation period, Yeshua said in Matthew 24,
"For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be,"... and,.. Luke 21 "For there will be great distress in the land and wrath upon this people. And they will fall by the edge of the sword, and be led away captive into all nations. And Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled."
Now considering what Zechariah 13:8 also says is coming to Israel in the last days before Messiah's return, "And it shall come to pass in all the land, that two-thirds in it shall be cut off and die",... it is therefore not hard to understand why Yeshua said that the tribulation would be the greatest time of trouble ever, because presently there are more than 8 million Jews in Israel, and the numbers are growing daily. How many will be there in the future when the antichrist begins his reign of terror? Who knows, but probably many more millions than presently, and two-thirds of them will die, which will no doubt be many more than the 6 million in WWII... This is 'unbelieving' Israel's reality before Yeshua's return and His Millennial Kingdom in Zion.
- Jeremiah 6 -
13 Because from the least of them even to the greatest of them, everyone is given to covetousness; and from the prophet even to the priest, everyone deals falsely. They have also healed the hurt of My people slightly, saying, ‘Peace, peace!’ when there is no peace.
There are people who believe they show their love for Israel by making declarations of 'peace and safety' over her (and over the Church as well) as though they are fulfilling some sacred, holy vow in 'Jesus' name. Yet speaking by Ruach Hakodesh, the prophets, apostles, and Yeshua Himself, proclaimed a very different message to Israel concerning the last days.
They speak of warning and judgment,- not peace,..... death and destruction,- not safety,
and in doing so, do they not show more love for Israel and the Church than those who speak lies of comfort? For such warnings are a call to repentance and salvation,- yet declarations of peace and safety are merely the blind leading the blind into a false sense of security. But then the lie is always easier to swallow than the truth, is it not? - "For wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it."
Therefore O deceived ones, shout your declarations of 'peace and safety'. Yes, speak to Israel in praise and adoration as though her salvation is sure. But in doing so, O Church, you will reap of her judgment... Yes, even greater judgment than she,- for in claiming to walk in truth, you instead speak lies unto deception and the falling away that is prophesied for the End of Days. For Israel is yet to suffer her greatest judgment ever, and it is a remnant alone who will be the 'all Israel' that will be saved at the return of Yeshua.
- JUDE 5 -
But I want to remind you, though you once knew this,
that Adonai, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt,
afterward destroyed those who did not believe.
That which is coming, is prophesied... It can not be altered... It will not delay...
The judgment of 'strong delusion' is even now being poured out, and the spirit of antichrist is already great upon the earth to cause deception. Israel will embrace the Beast as her messiah, and he will make her 'soon to be built' third temple his home and headquarters, from which he will reign in terror upon the earth. To declare the truth of this is to love those whom are being warned. For a remnant in Israel will hear and turn to Yeshua with all their heart. They will flee to protection, and be hidden in the days of wrath and the judgment that is to come. They are the 'all Israel' that will be saved. All others in Israel will perish or be carried away captive just as prophesied, as will those who falsely declare 'peace and safety' over them also perish.
"Narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it." And I tell you that among the few that find it, even fewer will follow.
- 1 Peter 4 -
17 For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of Elohim; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God?
Judgment comes, O church... Judgment comes, O Israel.
"Lines drawn, choices made... Mercy for mercy, refuse for refuse...
One I will heal, another I will kill... Which one are you?" Says Adonai.
- John 1 -
11 He came to His own,
and His own did not receive Him
- Matthew 27 -
25 And all the people answered and said,
“His blood be on us and on our children.”
- Acts 4 -
10 "let it be known to you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Yeshua haMashiyach of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom Elohim raised from the dead, by Him this man stands here before you whole. 11 This is the ‘stone which was rejected by you builders, which has become the chief cornerstone.’ 12 Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
