From the distant past a bell rings true

Two significant events occurred in modern times. The reestablishment of the Jewish state in 1948. And, the recent relocation of the United States capital in Israel to Jerusalem. Two of several events that had to occur in order for the world to end, as we know it today. The others will be discovered during the course of this discussion.

Right from the beginning the God plan for humanity was corrupted by unprecedented evil. Through out history evil has managed up end the unprecedented evil with even greater evil. Until the end of time, as we know it.

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Who predict the opposite of the aforementioned. Counterbalanced by former British Prime Minister, who writes about the fragility of the world community of nations. However both commissions see money and technology, as the worlds best hope for survival and prosperity. Time which is knocking at our door will determine which scenario prevails.

Our world is in such a mess despite rays of hope because Christendom today is more entrepreneurial in scope than anything else.

John in the book of Revelation said this more than once. Those who have an ear, hear what is said about the church and the future.

Perhaps the church at Laodicea is most picturesque of our 21 century church. Where the following was said, “And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write. These things says the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God. I know your works, you are neither cold or hot. So then because you are lukewarm, neither cold or hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. I will vomit you out of my mouth. Because you say, I am rich and have become wealthy and have need of nothing. Do you not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind and naked.” Revelation 3:14-17.

So many churches, not all thank God, meet the criteria of the above verses. Clearly the scriptures teach that they will be held accountable for their failures. While the true, and faithful of God’s churches, they represent our only hope national and global stability.

But the challenge still remains for all to heed. Because Christ is saying, I love the church. Acknowledge My rebuke, and correct your ways in a zealous way, verses 18-19. Hear with your ears, the prophetic revelations for tomorrow from the distant pass, verses 20-22.

When trying to understand swirling global events, it’s important to recognize the historians, who wrote about the then, now and future. Just like the the ancients of yesterday, we had a then, a now, and a future. All this should be looked at as a chronicle of prophetic history and a history yet to be made. It is best understood  from what God calls the Word of God.

The Bible should be thought of as a unique collection of literature. Written by ordinary people like us, but over a span of at least fifteen centuries. Representing a host of different cultures. With very different agenda’s, and considering the varying times that separated their lives. Yet they were able to put together a prophetic story that reverberates with stunning accuracy. Accomplished because all scripture is given by the inspiration of God, 2 Timothy 3:16. Inspiration from the Greek,”theopneustos” meaning “God breathed.”

Making our scriptures as authentic as if the Almighty had written them as He did with the Ten Commandments. Concerning the commandments, “Moses broke the commandments, and God summoned him and said, “Cut two tablets of stone like the first ones, and I will write on these tables the words that were on the first tables, which you broke,” Exodus 34:1. Sacred truths to govern the lives of the ancients. But we of the church age, are beneficiaries of there truths, as moral standards only.

The day will come, when God will exit Christians, as a presences on this earth. See 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17. And, the Jews will have their Temple reestablished in Jerusalem. And will practice, all sacrificial obligations of Temple worship. Which includes strict compliance with appropriate consequences, for failure to adhere to the demands of the Ten Commandments.

Here’s a brief timeline from creation till now. The intended purpose for the birth of Jesus was to fulfill the covenant promises made to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. The establishment of the Kingdom of God upon this earth. With Jesus being the promised Messiah and their King.

The Jews rejected any such proposition. See, John 19:12;15 which reads, “From then on Pilate sought to release Him, but the Jews cried out, saying, ‘If you let this Man go, you are not Caesar’s friend. Whoever makes himself a king speaks against Caesar.'” They cried out, “Away with Him, away with Him! Crucify Him!” Pilate said to them, “Shall I crucify your King?” The chief priests answered, “We have no king but Caesar!”

Such a rejection represents one histories most colossal mistakes. Resulting in another game changer by God the Father. Sending Jesus to the cross to meet His death. Postponing the establishment of His kingdom to some time in the future.

That future was revealed by the prophet Daniel, wrote wrote, “Seventy weeks are determined for your people and for your holy city.” See Daniel 9:24a. Seventy weeks represent weeks of years or 490 years. Now drop down to verse 26a which reads, “And after sixty two weeks Messiah shall be cut off….” Meaning Christ was crucified sometime during the sixth week or during the 483rd  year of my timeline. Those 62 weeks represent 483 years. Leaving one week or seven years remaining.

Reviewing yesterday’s discussion might be helpful for your understanding because of the complexity of the subject matter being discussed today.

A persuasive charismatic person will broker a peace treaty between Israel and the Palestinians. But he will break that treaty. In the middle of that last week or 3 1/2 years into the treaty. See Daniel 9:27.

As aforementioned above, the church age will have ended. That period of time has been tagged as the the day of the Lord. It’ll be a time of horrific turmoil and suffering. Such as has never been experienced by humanities tumultuous history.

When will it happen? It’ll occur when Israel, and the Palestinians agree to a peace treaty. That’ll start humanities troublesome times. Those troubles will be exacerbated, when the treaty is broken.

There will be a war of unmatched global destruction. That is when Christ will intervene ending the war that is about to destroy all of humanity. As the war concludes Jesus will establish His long promised kingdom on this earth. For both Jews and Gentiles, who by His life, death, burial, resurrection and ascension know what it means to be a part of His family. It’s best expressed by reading, Romans 10:9-10.

Take notice of a seemingly out of place clause found in, Daniel 9:26, “But not for Himself.” It’s all about choice. Humanity has always collectively said no to God’s planned destiny for us. Finally enuf is enuf. Because, as said, humanity will continue to go its independent way. Towards ultimate and complete self annihilation. His kingdom come on earth is what. “But not for Himself,” is what it’s all about. This padre, a renegade from entrepreneurial Christendom prays you’ll be part of His global community. It’s not automatic. It’s by individual choice.

1 upmanship its beginning

A fox tumbled into a water tank and could not get out. Along came a thirsty goat, and seeing the fox, asked him if the water was good? The fox jumped jumped at the chance. He sang the praises of of the water with all the eloquence at his command and urged the goat to come down.

The goat was so thirsty that he went down without stopping to think and drank his fill. Then they began to consider how they were to get up again. “I have a good idea,” said the fox, “That is, if you willing to do something to help us both. Be so kind as to place your forefeet against the wall and hold your horns straight up. Then I can climb up, and pull you up too.”

The goat was glad to enough to comply. The fox clambered nimbly over his haunches, shoulders, and horns reaching the edge of the tank, and began to make off. The goat complained that he had broken their compact. But he only came back to say, “You have more hairs in your beard than brains in your head my friend, otherwise, you wouldn’t have gone down without thinking how you were going to get up.”

A sensible person never embarks on an enterprise, until they can see their way clear to the end of it. (source:Penguin Classics – Fables of Aesop – “Look Before You Leap”)

What can be learned from such an ancient philosopher as Aesop? Lessons like, think carefully before acting, and avoid those, who you suspect trade in such an unfortunate human trait. Be careful because today the landscape of taking advantage of others for personal gain, and then gloating about it, as did our fox. Seems to be a trait gaining popularity and acceptance.

It had its beginning centuries ago, when the most deceitful character ever, Genesis 3:1. Who had ulterior motives, when he made a trip to the Garden of Eden. And said to Eve, you know, that if you disobey God you will not die. In fact, you will be as gods, Genesis 3:4-5. As some say, side bar your honor, from the previous discussions that’s what constitutes blasphemy.

What the serpent told Eve represents the greatest hoax anyone ever pulled of, greater than the one pulled of by our sly fox, who had his own ulterior motive. The greatest hoax ever because it changed the conditions of life for humanity forever. Ushering in these consequences.

For women, perpetual hardships through child bearing and the burden of male dominance, verse 16. And for her husband, an equal partner in disobeying God, sorrowful labor just to eat, followed by death, verses 17-19.

The saga continues today with different players, same results. One upmanship is a human trait and for the ones hoaxed discomfort like that of our poor goat. All because they failed to consider the consequences. But for the hoax of all time hardships, and death.

As far as the serpent’s motive, then, today and into the future. Corrupt and destroy, as many people as possible.
