OUR PURPOSE IS TO PERSUADE PEOPLE TO BELIEVE… (2COR 5:11) (1PETER 3:15) (PROVERBS 15:28)
“Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are made manifest unto God; and I trust also are made manifest in your consciences”. (2COR 5:11)
“be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear”: (1Peter 3:15)
“The heart of the righteous studieth to answer:”. (Proverbs 15:28)
“Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine” (2Timothy 4:2)
Pleasing God. (Galatians 1:10)
TO BELIEVE IN THE JESUS OF THE BIBLE, (2CORINTHIANS11:4)
“For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him”. (2Cor 11:4)
TO BELIEVE THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY. (JOHN 14:6) (ACTS 4:12)
“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (John 14:6)
“Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved”. (Acts 4:12)
TO BELIEVE THAT THE GIFT OF GOD IS ETERNAL LIFE! (ROMANS 6:23)
“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord”
TO PROCLAIM THE SIMPLE GOSPEL. (2 CORINTHIANS 11:3)
Jesus said…”He that beliveth on me hath everlasting life”. (John 6:47)
“But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ” (2Co 11:3)
IT IS JUST FAITH ALONE! (ACTS 16:31) (EPHESIANS 2:8, 9)
“Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved”, (Acts 16:31)
“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God”: “Not of works, lest any man should boast”. (Ephesians 2:8, 9)
TO DISTINGUISH BETWEEN GRACE AND WORKS (ROMANS 4:4, 5; 11:6)
“Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt”. (Romans 4:4)
“But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness”. (Romans 4:5)
“And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work”. (Romans 11:6)
If you are trusting in your works, it is because you are not trusting in Christ!
TO DISTINGUISH BETWEEN GODS’ RIGHTEOUSNESS AND MANS’ RIGHTEOUSNESS. (PHILIPPIANS 3:9)
“And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith”: (PHILIPPIANS 3:9)
Two kinds of righteousnesses are mentioned here, but only one can save!
TO PERSUADE PEOPLE TO CHANGE THEIR MIND ABOUT FALSE BELIEFS. (HEBREWS 6:1)
“Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God”, (Hebrews 6:1)
Change the minds of people who are trusting in works for salvation.
Metanoia! … is a Greek word which means “Change of Mind”. It is also the word that is translated into “repent” in the KJV Bible. That has caused a lot of confusion about the meaning of the word “Repent”.
Readers of English Translations, are advised to substitute “change of mind” for the words repent and repentance.
Change the minds of people about the Bible, about who Jesus is, what he did for us, and about what happens next.
TO DISTINGUISH BETWEEN TRUTH & ERROR. (1JOHN 4:6)
“But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed” (Galatians 1:8).
“Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints”. (Jude 1:3)
“We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error”. (1John 4:6)
TO TRUST THE BIBLE AS THE WORD OF GOD,
“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness”: (2Timothy 3:16)
“That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works”. (2Timothy 3:17)
TO PROCLAIM GOD’S WORD FAITHFULLY; (JEREMIAH 23:28)
“The prophet that hath a dream, let him tell a dream; and he that hath my word, let him speak my word faithfully. What is the chaff to the wheat? saith the LORD”. (Jeremiah 23:28)
THE STORY OF ELIJAH AND ELISHA (2KINGS 2:5 – 11)
tells about when Elijah and Elisha were waiting for the Lord to take Elijah up to Heaven. (2Kings 2:5)
They knew the day it would happen and so did the other prophets. They all wanted to watch and see it happen from a safe distance (vs 7).
Elisha was promised a double portion of Elijah’s Spirit if he was watching for the moment the Lord took Elijah away. That was the only condition for the double blessing. Elijah said it was a hard thing to ask, but if Elisha met the one condition of watching relentlessly and actually seeing it happen, then his request would be granted. (2 Kings 2:9, 10) Elisha watched, saw an amazing sight and received a double blessing! (vs 11, 12)
Elisha saw something that day that no one else that he knew of, had ever seen or heard of! It was going to be so fantastic that he was offered a chance to stay behind, which he refused but instead he persevered to his goal. His goal was to watch and see the sight of a lifetime and receive a double blessing!
THE RAPTURE IS A SIGN TO THE JEWS! (1CO 1:22)
“For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom”: (1Co 1:22)
The Rapture is a sign to a lost world, but to the Jew in particular. This event marks the end of the church age and the end of the dispensation of grace through Gentile lips. The job of dispensing the gospel of Grace will return to the Jews at the Rapture.
WE ARE COMMANDED TO WATCH FOR THE DAY OF THE LORD! (1 THESSALONIANS 5:6)
“Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober”. (1 Thessalonians 5:6)
God has commanded believers to watch for his gathering together of the Church in the air and has a special crown or reward for those who are watching for it. It is kind of like Elijah’s double blessing. (1Thessalonians 5:6)
“A CROWN OF RIGHTEOUSNESS IS LAID UP FOR”… US IF WE WATCH. (II TIMOTHY 4:8)
“Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing”. (II Timothy 4:8)
WE WILL NOT BE SURPRISED IF WE ARE WATCHING FOR IT.
“Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee”. (Revelation 3:3)
This passage is warning the Church about the dangers of not watching. It warns that you won’t know what hour our Lord will return if you are not watching for it.
THIS PASSAGE IMPLIES THAT THERE ARE THINGS TO WATCH FOR AND FURTHERMORE IT IMPLIES THAT YOU SHOULD KNOW THE HOUR OF OUR LORDS RETURN IF YOU ARE WATCHING FOR IT. THIS PASSAGE IS TALKING ABOUT THE LORD’S RETURN FOR THE CHURCH. IT IS TALKING TO THE CHURCH ABOUT OUR FUTURE REUNION IN THE AIR TO MEET JESUS IN PERSON AT THE RAPTURE! (1 THESSALONIANS 4:)
“But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief”. (1TH 5:4)
“Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness”. (1TH 5:5)
“Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober”. (1TH 5:6)
GOD WOULD NOT TELL US TO WATCH UNLESS THERE WAS SOMETHING TO WATCH FOR.
Israel is a Sign
THE LATTER DAYS BEGAN MAY 14, 1948, ISRAEL WAS BORN!
The Nations are signs
The earth is a sign
God has given us signs in the heavens.
“And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons,” … (Gen. 1:14)
The word used for “seasons” in Gen. 1:14 is the same word used in Leviticus 23:4 for “Feasts” and “seasons”. It is the word; (mow`ed) Strong’s # H4150 – “mō·ād’” and means “appointed time”, place, meeting, feast, season, sign or signal.
The Hebrew calendar and its corresponding Feasts are the keys to understanding the seven signs of Gods’ seven Feasts.
THE 7 FEASTS OF ISRAEL
…are Devine Appointments based on a solar and lunar calendar like the one used in Israel today. They are Appointments in time and place with Yeshua (Jesus) and are signs to believers who are obediently watching.
“These are the feasts of the LORD, even holy convocations, which ye shall proclaim in their seasons”. (Leviticus 23:4)
“Feasts” comes from the Hebrew word “mow`ed“ (Strong’s Dictionary # H4150), it means solemn appointment or time. When God makes the appointment, it’s called a “Devine Appointment”.
THE FIRST FOUR FEASTS (APPOINTMENTS),
The Spring Feasts, were literally fulfilled in their order, on their day and at their hour, just like God’s Prophets declared. It would be unreasonable to think that the next prophetic event could occur at any other time other than the time that God has appointed and declared in his word and with the corresponding Feast day. The Feasts are Devine Appointments.
THE NEXT FEAST (ROSH HASHANAH) FEAST OF TRUMPETS
If you know which number comes after 4, then you know which feast is next to be fulfilled. The 5th Feast of God is popularly known as Rosh Hashanah also called the Feast of Trumpets.
The Church Age began on the 4th Spring Feast, (Pentecost) and it will end on the 5th Feast, Rosh Hashanah or the (Feast of Trumpets).
When we read about the “blessed hope of the believer”, we often find trumpets associated with it. Also the Feast of Trumpets is the Jewish, Biblical New Year. When the Priest prepares to blow the final trumpet at sundown, believers who are watching for that Day will receive an extra blessing. ()
Rosh Hashanah or the Feast of Trumpets begins its observances at sundown, which is the beginning of the first day of the 7th month, Tishrei. Rosh Hashanah, the Feast of Trumpets is the Jewish New Year. Tradition holds it as the Anniversary of the Creation of Adam and Eve.
Rosh Hashanah or Feast of Trumpets is one of those 7 Devine Appointments that we have been calling Feast days or Jewish Holidays. Trumpets are blown all day long in sets of high/low, short/long blasts which total to more than a hundred blasts on the Shofar. A final blast of the Shofar at sundown marks the end of the former year and the beginning of the New Year. So Rosh Hashanah ends and the New Year begins at 6pm sundown, Jerusalem time. (That’s 11:am eastern standard time.)
GOD HAS DECLARED THE DAY AND THE MOMENT.
“In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed”. (1 Corinthians 15:52)
That is the day and the very moment of the Devine Appointment for the Church to meet our Lord in the air. All you need to know is the year. So how does this year look to you?
ROSH HASHANAH JUDEO/CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP.
This is a good year for believers to start coming together with those of the Jewish faith on Rosh Hashanah to see the New Year come in together.
We need to talk about the God of Israel and the meaning of Rosh Hashanah and the other 6 Feasts of Israel.
Find someone Jewish to see the New Year in with.
Any year could be the Rosh Hashanah that will mark the end of the Church Age and the beginning of the Day of the Lord.
That is the day and the moment that we should all be watching for.
Every year we should Count down the Months, Days, hours, minutes and seconds till the last blow of the Shofar at sundown to mark the end of the last day of the previous year and the beginning of the next New Year.
There is much misinformation about end times Bible prophecy. It is important to proclaim what God has said and be ready to answer objections.
THE 70TH WEEK OF DANIEL BEGINS ON YOM KIPPUR!
From the rapture (Rosh Hashanah) to the end of Yom Kippur is 10 days.
At the end of Yom Kippur (the 6th Feast), the day they shall say “peace and safety”, after sundown “then sudden destruction cometh upon them and they shall not escape” (1Th 5:3)
“For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape”. (1 Thessalonians 5:3)
THE PEOPLE WHO ARE LEFT BEHIND.
They need to know why they were left behind and what will happen next.
Those people who are left behind because they believed in a false gospel will face even greater deception and persecution. I want this website to help them find the truth.
The chances of surviving the 7 years of Tribulation are not good. Those who become believers will mostly suffer and die a terrifying death at the hands of Muslims.
What we see overseas is already here and ready to start on command.
THE NATION OF THE ANTICHRIST
There is no doubt about which country is the first to be controlled by the Antichrist.
The Nation of the Antichrist will be the worst place on earth to try to survive during the seven years following!
Chapter 31, “The 11th Nation” identifies in detail the Nation of the Antichrist. when you see it from God’s word.
THE CURSE. (Isaiah 24:6)
The Bible warns about a worldwide “curse”.
“Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth,” and “few men left”… (Isaiah 24:6).
“Curse” is translated from the same Hebrew word translated as “curse” in Daniel 9:11 which is “Alah”. The Hebrew word has one less “l” than the Arabic form.
