_________________________________________________________

 

ISRAEL 
'Then and Now' 

As the children of Israel approached the land of Canaan, they were commanded to drive out and destroy all the people in the region (Numbers 33:50-56), but as nearly always the case, Israel did not obey her Elohim, and the Biblical record shows just how many judgments Israel would come under for her continual disobedience throughout her history, even up to finally being driven from the land and dispersed among the nations with the sword sent after them (Jeremiah 9:13-16).
And through the prophecy spoken by Ezekiel concerning the future return of Israel in the latter days, Elohim also made it very clear that although He would in fact bring them back to the land one day, it would not be for the sake of those returning, but rather for His holy name's sake alone (Ezekiel 36:22). 

Scripture further tells us that there is coming a false messiah in these last days; the abomination of desolation; a beast known as the Antichrist (Daniel 7:7-8 , Daniel 7:19-25 , Rev 13:1-18 , Matt 24:15, 1 John 2:18), who will come by intrigue and a covenant of false peace to deceive the entire world through all power, signs, and lying wonders (2 Thes 2:9-12) , and you O Israel will accept him as your messiah along with all the nations who will worship the dragon (Rev 13:3-4), for he is the counterfeit christ, who will set up his throne in your soon to be built third temple, where he will ultimately rule over you and the nations in terror (Matt 24:15-21). 

I do not know who Elohim would have raised up as a people unto Himself had He carried out His desire to completely destroy and blot out the name of His people in the wilderness so long ago (Deut 9:13-14), but it is clear that the Israel of today is no less deceived and rebellious than the people of Sinai (Deut 31 & 32). And although a Jewish Remnant will be called forth and protected in these end times, all others in the land of Israel will suffer great judgment and destruction in the coming days of tribulation before Yeshua's return to Zion, and His Millennial Kingdom upon the earth...
(Joel 2:1-32 , Zech 13:8-9 , Zech 14:1-21 , Luke 21:20-24 ,
Rev 7:1-8 , Rev 14:1-5 , Rev 5:9-10)

"There is a chosen in Israel, but not all Israel is chosen...
There is a protection over Israel, but not all Israel is protected"

You O Israel, who kills her prophets and crucified her Messiah,
choose now whom you will follow,
for the spirit of antichrist has gone out into the world,
and his coming is soon.

I stand with Yeshua haMashiyach and His remnant elect;...
a nation within the nation,... the 'all Israel' that will be saved.

Awake O Remnant,
and know that your time is close at hand.

selah 

- 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.”

MY PEOPLE ISRAEL

"My people Israel, 
I have called you such because it is the land that is holy,... 
My name that is holy, My hill that is holy, and My righteousness that is holy... 

I AM HOLY! 

You are a people that has despised Me over the years. 
You abused My grace and My goodness unto you. 

You sought to change Me always; who I am,
and who I always was meant to be to you. 

You have forsaken My law, and therefore forsaken My justice. 
It is My judgments that you have known over the years, and even now you are sustained only by My grace for the people of My choosing,
My Remnant. 

I am coming My people, and you know Me not. 
I am coming at an hour when you least expect it,... 
a day when you will lament.
 
I have called and called to you, and you refuse to listen,...
you refuse to know Me.

Listen now to My voice, O people of My choosing. 
Listen, and you will hear it plainly as I speak. 

I am speaking to you My children... Do you hear Me? 
My Spirit is like a wind inside you My children... Do you feel Me? 

Respond My children. 
Rise up and know what is holy within you,- 
for it is not of yourself that it is holy, but of Me alone! 

I AM THAT I AM... 
I AM AND HAVE ALWAYS BEEN. 
I AM AND WILL ALWAYS BE. 

I am within you, and you are in Me. 
Rise up and hear Me now. 

Renegades and rebels are reviled in My sight. 
I will have a people humble and holy unto Me...

My Remnant Israel unto the ages."

NOT ALL ISRAEL

"There is a chosen in Israel, but not all Israel is chosen... 
There is a protection over Israel, but not all Israel is protected."
__________________


- Matthew 24 -
15 "Therefore when you see the 'abomination of desolation', spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place" (whoever reads, let him understand) "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 shall ever be. 22 And unless those days were shortened no flesh would be saved, but for the elect's sake (remnant) those days will be shortened"

- Luke 21 -
20 "But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that it's desolation is near. 21 Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains... 22 For these are the days of vengeance, that all things that are written may be fulfilled... 23b For there will be great distress in the land and wrath upon this people.  24 And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and be led away captive to all nations. And Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled."

- Isaiah 10 -
20 And it shall come to pass in that day... 
21 The remnant will return, the remnant of Jacob, to the Mighty Elohim.
22 For though your people, O Israel, be as the sand of the sea, a remnant of them will return; the destruction decreed shall overflow with righteousness. 23 For Ha'adon Adonai Tseva’ot will make a determined end in the midst of all the land.


- Isaiah 13 -
6 Wail, for the day of Adonai is at hand! It will come as destruction from the Almighty...
15 Everyone who is found will be thrust through, and everyone who is captured will fall by the sword. 16 Their children also will be dashed to pieces before their eyes; their houses will be plundered and their wives ravished.

- Ezekiel 7 -
Moreover the word of Adonai came to me, saying, 
2 “And you, son of man, thus says Ha'adon Adonai to the land of Israel:
‘An end! The end has come upon the four corners of the land. 3 Now the end has come upon you, and I will send My anger against you; I will judge you according to your ways, and I will repay you for all your abominations. 4 My eye will not spare you, nor will I have pity; but I will repay your ways, and your abominations will be in your midst; then you shall know that I am Adonai!’... 14 ‘They have blown the trumpet and made everyone ready, but no one goes to battle; for My wrath is on all their multitude. 15 The sword is outside, and the pestilence and famine within. Whoever is in the field will die by the sword; and whoever is in the city. famine and pestilence will bevour him. 16 ‘Those who survive will escape and be on the mountains like doves of the valleys, all of them mourning, each for his iniquity... 24 Therefore I will bring the worst of the Gentiles, and they will possess their houses; I will cause the pomp of the strong to cease, and their holy places shall be defiled... 25 Destruction comes; they will seek peace, but there shall be none... 27 I will do to them according to their way, and according to what they deserve I will judge them; then they shall know that I am Adonai!’”"


- Amos 8 -
2 Then Adonai said to me, "The end has come upon My people Israel; I will not pass by them anymore. 3 And the songs of the temple shall be wailing in that day," says Ha'adon Adonai-- "Many dead bodies everywhere, they shall be thrown out in silence."

- 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 the city will go into captivity, but the remnant of the people shall not be cut off from the city. 3 Then Adonai will go forth and fight against those nations, as He fights in the day of battle. 4 And in that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, which faces Jerusalem on the east. And the Mount of Olives shall be split in two, from east to west, making a very large valley; half of the mountain shall move toward the north, and half of it toward the south. 5 Then you shall flee through My mountain valley, for the mountain valley shall reach to Azal. Yes, you shall flee as you fled from the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah. Thus Adonai my Elohim will come, and all the saints with You.... 9 And Adonai shall be King over all the earth. In that day it shall be- “Adonai is one,” and His name one. 10 All the land shall be turned into a plain from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem shall be raised up and inhabited in her place from Benjamin’s Gate to the place of the First Gate and the Corner Gate, and from the Tower of Hananel to the king’s winepresses. 11 The people shall dwell in it; and no longer shall there be utter destruction, but Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited."
__________

"The people shall dwell in it; 
and no longer shall there be utter destruction, 
but Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited" 

So then, what does this mean,
"and no longer shall there be utter destruction",
except that there will be utter destruction 
in Israel,
even up to the day of Yeshua's return.

- Two-thirds of all Israel will be cut off and killed -
- Jerusalem will fall -
- The city taken captive and plundered -
- The women raped and murdered -

A time of great tribulation such as never before in the world;
a time in which no one in Israel would survive except for the return of Yeshua, and the armies of Elohim upon the earth.

- 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,
afterwards destroyed those who did not believe.

"There is a chosen in Israel, but not all Israel is chosen...
There is a protection over Israel, but not all Israel is protected."

I stand with Yeshua haMashiyach and His remnant elect;
a nation within the nation,... the 'all Israel' that will be saved.

Awake O Remnant,
and know that your time is close at hand.


- Joel 2 -
"Blow the trumpet in Zion,
and sound an alarm in My holy mountain!"

PEACE AND SAFETY

- 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.

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 also says is coming to Israel in the last days before Messiah's return, "8 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 upon the earth, and the spirit of antichrist is already deeply rooted and extablished among the nations to cause deception. Israel will embrace the Beast as her messiah, and he will make the 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.

 ----------

Judgment comes O Church...

 - 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 Elohim?

 Judgment comes, O Israel...

- 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.”

 "Lines drawn, choices made... Mercy for mercy, refuse for refuse...
One I will heal, another I will kill... Which one are you?" Says Adonai.


selah

 - 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.”

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 also 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 these last days. 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.

----------

- 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."

- 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.

- 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)

RETURNED - BUT NOT YET RESTORED

Though there are still many specific aspects of prophecy yet to play out in these last days, there are but only two basic reasons for Israel's end-time return;

1) for judgment

2) for revealing, refining, and redeeming a remnant

----------

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,

but one–third shall be left in it:

9 I will bring the one–third through the fire, will refine them as silver is refined, and test them as gold is tested. They will call on My name, and I will answer them. I will say, ‘This is My people’; and each one will say, ‘Adonai is my Elohim.’”

----------

Just as prophesied, the political nation of Israel has returned to the land in these last days (at least a small portion of it),
but the Beast (counterfeit messiah), and the tribulation judgments, must come first before Yeshua's return and His Millennial Kingdom.
Only then will Israel's 'remnant restoration' finally take place as the true chosen people of Elohim.



"There is a chosen in Israel, but not all Israel is chosen… 
There is a protection over Israel, but not all Israel is protected"

I stand with Yeshua haMashiach and his 'remnant elect',...
a nation within the nation,... the 'all Israel' that will be saved.

----------

- Joel 2 -
1 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.

- 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.

- 2 Thessalonians 2 -
9 The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, 10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this reason Elohim will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, 12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

- Matthew 24 -
15 “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination 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 (remnant) 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... 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."

- Amos 8 -
1 Thus Ha'adon Adonai showed me: Behold, a basket of summer fruit. 2 And He said, “Amos, what do you see?” So I said, “A basket of summer fruit.” (Matthew 24 “Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near) Then Adonai said to me: “The end has come upon My people Israel; I will not pass by them anymore. 3 And the songs of the temple shall be wailing in that day,” says Ha'adon Adonai—“Many dead bodies everywhere, they shall be thrown out in silence..... 9 “And it shall come to pass in that day,” says Ha'adon Adonai, “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 its end like a bitter day. 11 “Behold, the days are coming,” says Ha'adon Adonai, “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."”

- Ezekiel 7 -
1 Moreover the word of Adonai came to me, saying, 2 “And you, son of man, thus says Ha'adon Adonai to the land of Israel: ‘An end! The end has come upon the four corners of the land. 3 Now the end has come upon you, and I will send My anger against you; I will judge you according to your ways, and I will repay you for all your abominations. 4 My eye will not spare you, nor will I have pity; but I will repay your ways, and your abominations will be in your midst; then you shall know that I am Adonai!’ 5 “Thus says Ha'adon Adonai: ‘A disaster, a singular disaster; behold, it has come! 6 An end has come, the end has come; it has dawned for you; behold, it has come! 7 Doom has come to you, you who dwell in the land; the time has come, a day of trouble is near, and not of rejoicing in the mountains. 8 Now upon you I will soon pour out My fury, and spend My anger upon you; I will judge you according to your ways, and I will repay you for all your abominations. 9 ‘My eye will not spare, nor will I have pity; I will repay you according to your ways, and your abominations will be in your midst. Then you shall know that I am Adonai who strikes. 10 ‘Behold, the day! Behold, it has come! Doom has gone out; the rod has blossomed, pride has budded. 11 Violence has risen up into a rod of wickedness; none of them shall remain, none of their multitude, none of them; nor shall there be wailing for them. 12 The time has come, the day draws near. ‘Let not the buyer rejoice, nor the seller mourn, for wrath is on their whole multitude. 13 For the seller shall not return to what has been sold, though he may still be alive; for the vision concerns the whole multitude, and it shall not turn back; no one will strengthen himself who lives in iniquity. 14 ‘They have blown the trumpet and made everyone ready, but no one goes to battle; for My wrath is on all their multitude. 15 The sword is outside, and the pestilence and famine within. Whoever is in the field will die by the sword; and whoever is in the city, famine and pestilence will devour him. 16 ‘Those who survive will escape and be on the mountains like doves of the valleys, all of them mourning, each for his iniquity. 17 Every hand will be feeble, and every knee will be as weak as water. 18 They will also be girded with sackcloth; horror will cover them; shame will be on every face, baldness on all their heads. 19 ‘They will throw their silver into the streets, and their gold will be like refuse; their silver and their gold will not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of Adonai; they will not satisfy their souls, nor fill their stomachs, because it became their stumbling block of iniquity. 20 ‘As for the beauty of his ornaments, He set it in majesty; but they made from it the images of their abominations— their detestable things; therefore I have made it like refuse to them. 21 I will give it as plunder into the hands of strangers, and to the wicked of the earth as spoil; and they shall defile it. 22 I will turn My face from them, and they will defile My secret place; for robbers shall enter it and defile it. 23 ‘Make a chain, for the land is filled with crimes of blood, and the city is full of violence. 24 Therefore I will bring the worst of the Gentiles, and they will possess their houses; I will cause the pomp of the strong to cease, and their holy places shall be defiled. 25 Destruction comes; they will seek peace, but there shall be none. 26 Disaster will come upon disaster, and rumor will be upon rumor. Then they will seek a vision from a prophet; but the law will perish from the priest, and counsel from the elders. 27 ‘The king will mourn, the prince will be clothed with desolation, and the hands of the common people will tremble. I will do to them according to their way, and according to what they deserve I will judge them; then they shall know that I am 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, but one–third shall be left in it: 9 I will bring the one–third through the fire, will refine them as silver is refined, and test them as gold is tested. They will call on My name, and I will answer them. I will say, ‘This is My people’; and each one will say, ‘Adonai is my Elohim.’”

- Zechariah 14 -
1 "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, but the remnant of the people shall not be cut off from the city.

3 Then (after all these things) Adonai will go forth and fight against those nations, as He fights in the day of battle. 4 And in that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, which faces Jerusalem on the east. And the Mount of Olives shall be split in two, from east to west, making a very large valley; half of the mountain shall move toward the north, and half of it toward the south. 5 Then you shall flee through My mountain valley, for the mountain valley shall reach to Azal. Yes, you shall flee as you fled from the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah. Thus Adonai my Elohim will come, and all the saints with You. 6 (Millennial Kingdom) It shall come to pass in that day that there will be no light; the lights will diminish. 7 It shall be one day which is known to Adonai— neither day nor night. But at evening time it shall happen that it will be light. 8 And in that day it shall be that living waters shall flow from Jerusalem, half of them toward the eastern sea, and half of them toward the western sea; in both summer and winter it shall occur. 9 And Adonai shall be King over all the earth. In that day it shall be— “Adonai is one,” and His name one. 10 All the land shall be turned into a plain from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem. Jerusalem shall be raised up and inhabited in her place from Benjamin’s Gate to the place of the First Gate and the Corner Gate, and from the Tower of Hananel to the king’s winepresses. 11 The people shall dwell in it; and no longer shall there be utter destruction, but Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited. 12 And this shall be the plague with which Adonai will strike all the people who fought against Jerusalem: Their flesh shall dissolve while they stand on their feet, their eyes shall dissolve in their sockets, and their tongues shall dissolve in their mouths. 13 It shall come to pass in that day that a great panic from Adonai will be among them. Everyone will seize the hand of his neighbor, and raise his hand against his neighbor’s hand; 14 Judah also will fight at Jerusalem, and the wealth of all the surrounding nations shall be gathered together: gold, silver, and apparel in great abundance. 15 Such also shall be the plague on the horse and the mule, on the camel and the donkey, and on all the cattle that will be in those camps.- So shall this plague be. 16 And it shall come to pass that everyone who is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall go up from year to year to worship the King, Adonai Tseva'ot, and to keep the Feast of Tabernacles. 17 And it shall be that whichever of the families of the earth do not come up to Jerusalem to worship the King, Adonai Tseva'ot, on them there will be no rain. 18 If the family of Egypt will not come up and enter in, they shall have no rain; they shall receive the plague with which Adonai strikes the nations who do not come up to keep the Feast of Tabernacles. 19 This shall be the punishment of Egypt and the punishment of all the nations that do not come up to keep the Feast of Tabernacles. 20 In that day “HOLINESS TO ADONAI” shall be engraved on the bells of the horses. The pots in Adonai’s house shall be like the bowls before the altar. 21 Yes, every pot in Jerusalem and Judah shall be holiness to Adonai Tseva'ot. Everyone who sacrifices shall come and take them and cook in them. In that day there shall no longer be a Canaanite in the house of Adonai Tseva'ot.


- Revelation 14 -
1 Then I looked, and behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Zion,- and with Him one hundred and forty four thousand, having His Father’s name written on their foreheads. 2 And I heard a voice from heaven, like the voice of many waters, and like the voice of loud thunder. And I heard the sound of harpists playing their harps. 3 They sang, as it were, a new song before the throne, before the four living creatures, and the elders; and no one could learn that song except the hundred and forty-four thousand who were redeemed from the earth. 4 These are the ones who were not defiled with women, for they are virgins. These are the ones who follow the Lamb wherever He goes. These were redeemed from among men, being first fruits to Elohim and to the Lamb. 5 And in their mouth was found no deceit, for they are without fault before the throne of Elohim.

- Revelation 5 -
9 And they sang a new song, saying: “You are worthy to take the scroll, and to open its seals; for You were slain, and have redeemed us to Elohim by Your blood out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation, 10 and have made us kings and priests to our Elohim; and we shall reign on the earth."

I AM A JEW


I am a Jew, but my identity is not in my Jewishness.


It is not in the covenant with Abraham,
nor the confirmation in Isaac, nor the revelation in Jacob...
 
It is not in the land of Israel, nor Jerusalem, nor the Mount, 
nor the temple that is to come...
 
It is not in the patriarchs, nor the kings, nor the prophets...
 
It is not in the remembrance of Egypt, nor Babylon, nor Masada,
nor the Holocaust...
 
It is not in Zionism, nor the return...


My identity is solely and completely in the Cross alone,...
the Blood of Yeshua,... El k'dosh Yisrael,... Elohim Chayim.
_____

I stand with Yeshua haMashiach and his 'remnant elect';
a nation within the nation,... the 'all Israel' that will be saved.


selah

1 Corinthians 1:18 
For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing,
but to us who are being saved it is the power of Elohim.
