Our Lord and Savior, Jesus, is coming soon! Assemble and take heed!
When He comes and gathers us like a hen who gathers her babies, we will be taken up to see the place He has prepared for us…
& because He is the One who was, who is, & who is to come; the Living Word who dwelt among us, we can look to His Word that declares what was, what is, and what is to come.
“…Thus the service of the house of Adonai was restored. Hizkiyahu and all the people rejoiced over what God had prepared for the people, since it had all happened so suddenly. Then Hizkiyahu sent to all Isra’el and Y’hudah, and wrote letters also to Efrayim and M’nasheh, summoning them to the house of Adonai in Yerushalayim, to keep the Pesach to Adonai the God of Isra’el.” 2 Chronicles 29:35, 30:1.
“So runners went with the letters from the king and his officers throughout all Isra’el and Y’hudah. They conveyed the king’s order: “People of Isra’el! Turn back to Adonai, the God of Avraham, Yitz’chak and Ya’akov! Then he will return to those of you who remain, who escaped capture by the kings of Ashur. Don’t be like your ancestors, or like your kinsmen who sinned against Adonai the God of their ancestors, with the result that he allowed them to become an object of horror, as you see. Don’t be stiffnecked now, as your ancestors were. Instead, yield yourselves to Adonai; enter his sanctuary, which he has made holy forever; and serve Adonai your God; so that his fierce anger will turn away from you. For if you turn back to Adonai, your kinsmen and children will find that those who took them captive will have compassion on them, and they will come back to this land. Adonai your God is compassionate and merciful; he will not turn his face away form you if you return to him.” 2 Chronicles 30: 6-9.
“What was” is merely a shadow of what is to come. His Living and Breathing Word shows us this. Jesus, our Messiah, is our High Priest forever and ever and is currently preparing a place for us. When we see Him coming and are taken up with Him, it will be sudden and we will rejoice!
He sends us out with Letters to all of mankind; the New Testament which exhorts us to humble ourselves, return to Him, and enter His sanctuary: The Testimonies of Matthew, Mark, Luke & John are sent out. The Letters of Paul, Sila and Timothy are sent out. The Letters from James and Peter are sent out. The Letters from John are sent. The Letter from Jude is sent. & Finally, the Revelation which Jesus showed John, is sent out.
These Letters are all sent out so that we may know Him, choose Him, love Him, return to Him and be strengthened, pressed, refined and instructed in Him.
For our God is truly a merciful and compassionate God that He sends us out with Letters so that we may know the Way to His sanctuary.
I encourage each and every one of you, including myself, to run with these letters to all mankind, whomever God leads us to, and share His message; the Ultimate and Eternal Emancipation Proclamation.
Will it be easy? No. It wasn’t easy for these men in 2 Chronicles either:
“So the runners passed from city to city through the territory of Efrayim and M’nasheh, as far as Z’vulun; but the people laughed at them and made fun of them. Nevertheless, some from Asher, M’nasheh and Z’vulun were humble enough to come to Yerushalyaim. Also in Y’hudah the hand of God was at work, uniting their hearts to do what the king and the leaders had ordered in accordance with the word of Adonai.” 2 Chronicles 30:10-12.
We may be laughed at and made fun of but, that’s okay because the hand of God is at work in us, uniting our hearts to do what He has ordered in accordance with His Word. Will everyone who is invited come? Jesus answers this for us:
“…’Once a man gave a banquet and invited many people. When the time came for the banquet, he sent his slave to tell those who had been invited, ‘Come! Everything is ready!’ But they responded with a chorus of excuses. The first said to him, ‘I’ve just bought a field, and I have to go out and see it. Please accept my apologies.’ Another said, ‘I’ve just bought five yoke of oxen, and I’m on my way to test them out. Please accept my apologies.’ Still another said, ‘I have just gotten married, so I can’t come.’ The slave came and reported these things to his master. Then the owner of the house, in a rage, told his slave, ‘Quick, go out into the streets and alleys of the city; and bring in the poor, the disfigured, the blind and the crippled!’ The slave said, ‘Sir, what you ordered has been done, and there is still room.’ The master said to the slave, ‘Go out to the country roads and boundary walls, and insistently persuade people to come in, so that my house will be full. I tell you, not one of those who were invited will get a taste of my banquet.” Luke 14:16-24.
May we all humble ourselves and accept His invitation. May we: “…keep watch on [ourselves], or [our] hearts will become dulled by carousing, drunkenness and the worries of everyday living, and that Day will be sprung upon [us] suddenly like a trap! For it will close in on everyone, no matter where they live, throughout the whole world. Stay alert, always praying that [we] will have the strength to escape all the things that will happen and to stand in the presence of the Son of Man” Luke 21:34-36.
This day is coming soon. I, myself, and many others have had dreams, signs, messages, and confirmations from the Lord that have pointed to His soon return. If you return to Him, He will not hide His Face from you. He loves you so much. Don’t be discouraged or disheartened by the world around us. Be encouraged in Him and strengthened in His Word. Cry out to Him. Choose Him.
Accept His invitation.
