We are coming to a point in kingdom history that concerns the age of the Church and the age of Yisrael Revival. As the quality of a fruit declines towards its end, we begin to see spots appearing on the skin of the aging fruit. As it continues to age instead of asking for renewal through daily repentance and going about the Father’s business on earth toward the world, the Church is going to die as her lamp stand is removed from her by Christ according to Revelation 2| 1- 7. In particular, let us read verse 5, a few heed the command directly from Christ: repent and do the first works. To the rest who do not heed it, Christ comes to remove the lamp stand out from them.
Here is another difference between a messianic worshiper of Y’shua Msheekha (Yehosha HaMoshiach) in the New Covenant and a Gentile Christian (one from the wild branch that is grafted to the Olive). We need to specify these differences for two reasons.
According to Romiym 11 through the writing of Paul, Apostle of Christ to the Gentiles, there will come a point in time that the age of the Church (for the Gentiles) will end and even among the Church, many of their leaders believe that the Jews will be brought back to Adonai through faith in Christ, our Jewish Messiah.
To Yisrael for a dispensation, Paul wrote,
“God gave them a spirit of stupor,”
But that time is ending. I have committed to my King and Lord for over 33 years coming to 34 years this month. As a member of the House of Israel by genes, my generation is the one where Jews turn back to Adonai to serve Him until He comes. Yes, Christ will come in my generation and my generation is the one where the prophecy regarding the Aliyah of Yisrael will come true for God’s final play in the war against corruption and sin.
To the Gentiles, Paul wrote, do not dismiss the severity of God.
22 See, then, the kindness and severity of God: severity upon those who have fallen, but upon you the kindness of God—if you continue in his kindness, for otherwise you also will be cut off. 23 And those also, if they do not persist in unbelief, will be grafted in, because God is able to graft them in again. 24 For if you were cut off from what is by nature a wild olive tree, and contrary to nature were grafted into a cultivated olive tree, how much more will these who are natural branches[o] be grafted into their own olive tree?
13 Now I am speaking to you Gentiles. Therefore, inasmuch as I am apostle to the Gentiles, I promote my ministry, 14 if somehow I may provoke my people (the Jews) to jealousy and save some of them. 15 For if their rejection means the reconciliation of the world, what will their acceptance mean except life from the dead? 16 Now if the first fruits are holy, so also is the whole batch of dough, and if the root is holy, so also are the branches.
This is unpacked to mean that the Church knows that and they have been preaching for the last 60 odd years that there is a change that is expected to happen to the Church as well as to the Jewish descendants of the House of Israel by an act of God Almighty. In Romiym 11, Paul was making a case of the Gentiles for the Gentiles. When at one point in their corporate future, they get too proud for their own good toward God, God will remove branches from the grafting of the wild branch away from the Olive. The Olive is specifically one of the handful symbols of Yisrael contained in the teaching of the Tanakh. The Olive stands for the religious order of Yisrael. The Lord sets up the House of David to rule the nation and the order of Levi to serve in the Temple. No other country have that privilege apart from Yisrael.
It stands apart from every other religion known in the world because the Creator called Yisrael out to be a theocratic nation that is governed by the body of divine laws given in the Torah. There is no other nation in the world which was and is governed by the Torah. There is no other faith in the world that worships the Creator of heaven and earth Who redeems mankind with His own blood by shedding innocent and healing blood for the remission of sins and the pardoning of sins. This is all recorded in the Tanakh. Y’shua is the One that came as the Word made flesh to fulfill all of these prophecies according to the Nevi’im (the Prophets). Y’shua says so in Matthew 5| 17.
17 “Do not think that I have come to destroy the law or the prophets. I have not come to destroy them but to fulfill them. 18 For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not one tiny letter or one stroke of a letter will pass away from the law until all takes place. 19 Therefore whoever abolishes one of the least of these commandments and teaches people to do so will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever keeps them and teaches them, this person will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20 For I say to you that unless your righteousness greatly surpasses that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter into the kingdom of heaven.
The second reason for us to specify this is the Apostasia which must happen before the antimessiah is revealed, in that order. Those who will join the rebellion must do so willingly. And Father will do them the honor of letting them follow their hearts to where they want to go: self-righteousness is one of their destinations.
The messianic worshiper of Elohiym begin reading the Word from Beresheet (Genesis) all the way to Revelation. The first 39 books of the Bible, which collectively is known as the Tanakh (an acronym of the Torah, the Nevi’im and the Ketuvim, The Instructions, the Prophets and the Writings) constitute the bases for which the New Covenant is to receive the proper interpretation. There are hundreds of places in the Tanakh that the Word of YHVH appears before His incarnation, which manifested in the New Covenant. Paraphrase of Zechariah 14| 16
The former adversarial nations against Jerusalem will go up from year to year to worship the King, YHVH Tzevaoth, and to keep Sukkot.
Yeshua is YHVH Tzevaoth. Yeshua is Son of the Father (Creator).
A survey in 2020 says 80% of Christians in America do not believe that Yeshua is God. They don’t know much about His origins. Many Gentiles do not acknowledge this truth: Y’shua is the Jewish Messiah told from prophecies in the Torah.
Unfortunately for these 80% of Christians in America, they may be seekers and the window is closing in January 2021 upon Tu B’Shvat on the night of the full moon.
