'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.
- 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,
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."
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
