Psalm 19:1 The heavens declare the glory of God. The expanse shows his handiwork.
Romans 1:20 For the invisible things of him since the creation of the world are clearly seen, being perceived through the things that are made, even his everlasting power and divinity; that they may be without excuse.
If you read everyone of my blog posts you will see a theme in what I have written. Namely, you will see that something dramatic occurred in my life that changed everything in how I see the written word of YHVH. When talking with Christians, I have very little commonality in how my Christian brothers and sister understand God. The contrast is stark. I absolutely believe in the deity of Messiah Yeshua but not from the Christian paradigm. I see his life following what was ordained via God's Calendar, Festivals, Shemitah, Jubilee and outline of how THY KINGDOM will come, has come! He had to die in order that Israel live
Matthew 15:24 But he answered, "I wasn't sent to anyone but the lost sheep of the house of Israel."
Romans 15:8 But I say that Yeshua The Messiah ministered to the circumcision (Jews) for the sake of the truth of God, so as to confirm The Promise of the fathers.
What I now understand is that God's revelation is Israel centric. Unless believers are shown what Israel is to God and why he commanded this group of people (in the wilderness) to do/learn very specific things especially those found in the book of Leviticus, it is not possible to understand what has been commenced since God turned on the lights. Looking back at these things from a Christian lens would be comparable to walking through the Temple of heaven with ear plugs, blindfolded. In other words, the individual must experience this from a perspective not tainted by western Theology or religious interpretation. Knowing the Gospel is great, knowing what precipitated this point in history is earth shattering. Unfortunately most in the churches understand this particular historical event with out the four thousand years that led up to it.
It is for this reason that when Pastor Mark Biltz (and others) says that GREAT Tribulation could begin in 2015 many detractors spring up like jack in the box with criticism and debate. The one constant is most are Christian and most do not know the Old Testament (how it is written) or Tanakh! When reading Tanakh like a story book from a Greek template 98 % of what God is revealing is an impossibility to see, negotiate, or comprehend. I simply do not have the brilliance to define this better. Without knowing the culture God created within Israel Christianity cannot see the cyclical, revelation found in the deeper meaning of the words. Without knowing Hebrew or the meanings of each of the 22 Hebrew letters or God's alphabet the average church goer is being lead away from God and his ways.
So yesterday, Pastor Mark Biltz made a stunning observation. For the average Christian should he or she watch this I already know that they won't understand it...THIS IS A RATHER horrific reality as a result of what we have done to the Biblical narrative due to Western Theology.
I watch all of the rapture ready folks and the teaching thereof, none of which is found in Tanakh and realize the deception is so intrinsic to Church theology. It astounds me...really! Watching too, the world slip into madness while people all around me are oblivious. All the while humanity is in a pot of water, so to speak with the temperature rising!.....I live almost in a constant state of shock that so much of the world cannot see, cannot hear, does not equivocate what is beginning. The rebellion of mankind against the Kingdom of God will be unlike anything humanity has seen. The very pattern of murder is a dress rehearsal of the killing that we will soon unleash upon one another. May God truly have mercy of all of us when he returns to stop us from destroying this planet!
Matthew 24:21-22 for then shall be great tribulation, such as hath not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days had been shortened, no flesh would have been saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.
"Now at that time Michael, the great prince who stands guard over the sons of your people, will arise. And there will be a time of distress such as never occurred since there was a nation until that time; and at that time your people, everyone who is found written in the book, will be rescued. Many of those who sleep in the dust of the ground will awake, these to everlasting life, but the others to disgrace and everlasting contempt."
