Luke 19:41-44 Now as Jesus drew near, He saw the city of Jerusalem, and wept over it, v:42 saying, “If you had known, even you, especially in this your day, the things that make for your peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes. v:43 For the days will come upon you when your enemies will build an embankment around you, surround you and close you in on every side, v:44 and level you, (Jerusalem) and your children within you, to the ground; and they will not leave in you one stone upon another, because you did not know the time of your visitation.”
Jesus spoke these words two thousand years ago to the Jewish people in Jerusalem, and forty years later these words were fulfilled to the letter.
Today God is speaking to the Church through His Holy Spirit, and through His prophets, pastors and teachers, and the message is exactly the same, KNOW THE TIME, for the time of visitation is upon you, the day of ETERNAL peace for all TRUE CHRISTIANS is upon us.
Jesus spent three and a half years showing people that God the Son was with them in the flesh, as had been foretold by all the prophets. He proved his claim through the many, many daily miracles He performed, miracles of every type possible, not just healing and raising to life the dead, but feeding the multitudes, calming the storm, walking on water, and commanding the fish to be caught with the gold coin in its mouth, and no doubt many more miracles which were not recorded.
In His sermons and discussions, and through his attitudes to people, such as the woman taken in adultery, the story of the good Samaritan etc. Jesus showed to the crowds and the authorities the love that God had for them, and which God wanted them to show others, in order that they might win them for God.
For three and a half years, the Jews had these signs and wonders being performed daily in front of their very eyes, they also had the words of the prophets, particularly Daniel, who even laid out before them, the very day of His death, yet still they missed their time. Daniel 9:24
The Church has had much longer than three and a half years of signs and wonders in the heavens and on the earth, as foretold by the prophets, and even by Jesus, forewarning us of the nearness of His return for His Bride, the True Believers.
Once again these signs have been multitudinous; they have been from nature in a variety of ways, they have come from the world leaders and from the peoples themselves of many countries around the world. These signs should have awakened the sleeping church and brought them to a place of expectancy and readiness for the day of their eternal peace in heaven, when Jesus comes and takes us home in the rapture.
Israel, of course, stands front and centre in many of these prophecies in the Old Testament, (The Torah and the Tanach) as God warns them of what will happen at the end of this age of grace. Their disobedience to God, and their rejection of their Messiah will have severe consequences for Israel’s unbelievers during the “Time of Jacob’s Trouble” better known as “The Great Tribulation”.
God’s “Covenant” with the nation of Israel, He called The Everlasting Covenant, and it was made with Abram (Abraham) and confirmed with Isaac and then Jacob, and Jacob’s descendants. No mention of an eternal land covenant with Ishmael, or Esau, or any other descendants of Abraham is mentioned, only the descendants of Jacob, but other nations in the world, and some misguided Church leaders, are now trying to steal God’s Covenant with Israel (Jacob) for themselves.
Gen 17:18 & 19 Then Abraham said to God, “Why not let Ishmael be my heir?”
v:19 God replied, “No! Your wife Sarah will give you a son, and you will name him Isaac [Abram Laughs]. I will make an everlasting promise TO HIM and HIS descendants.
Genesis 17:7-8 And I will establish My covenant between Me and you and your descendants after you in their generations, for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and your descendants after you.
1Ch 16:15-17 Remember His covenant forever, The word which He commanded, for a thousand generations, v:16 The covenant which He made with Abraham, And His oath to Isaac, v:17 And confirmed it TO JACOB for a statute, To Israel for an EVERLASTING COVENANT.
Israel’s enemies also stand warned of this coming period of God’s judgement on the earth for their evil ways, and for their refusal to repent and turn from their sin, and also for the wicked way that these nations have treated God’s chosen people throughout the centuries of time since God chose Israel as His People.
Isa 13:11 “I will punish the world for its evil, And the wicked for their iniquity; Joel 3:2 I will also gather ALL NATIONS and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat; And I will enter into judgment with them there on account of My people, My heritage Israel, Whom THEY have scattered among the nations; THEY have also divided up My land.
KNOW YOUR TIME CHURCH!!! Today the majority of Western Churches are following the lead of Martin Luther in their hatred for God’s Chosen People, and they are siding with the Palestinians and Hamas, against the Israel of the everlasting covenant. Damaging Israel wherever possible with their Boycott, Divest and Sanction Israel policies, blind to the fact that God is about to punish those who have harmed His Chosen People. Blind to the fact that a Covenant is either “Everlasting“ or it is not, and the Bible says that God does not lie, nor does He change His mind. Wake up Church before it is too late, time is running out.
Num 23:19 God is not a man, so he does not lie. He is not human, so he does not change his mind. Has he ever spoken and failed to act? Has he ever promised and not carried it through? NLT. Answer NO NEVER!!! Wake up Church, God never gave the land of Israel to the Church, not even the City of Jerusalem, they belong to HIM!
WAKE UP CHURCH The signs in the skies, blood red moons, and in the sun, massive coronal blasts of Electro Magnetic Pulses which would fry (destroy) most electrical circuits, taking us back 200 years to horse and cart and kerosene lamp days, have just been scraping past the edge of the earth of late. The signs in nature, a massive increase in the number of volcanoes going off at present, a massive increase in volcanic eruptions, massive earthquakes all around the world, massive storms, cyclones, hurricanes etc., massive firestorms and huge areas of drought in other parts of the world. A huge increase in biological signs, with both old, supposedly extinct diseases and new deadly viruses, plagues, etc. showing up in increasing numbers worldwide.
On the national scene, all countries are facing terrorist threats, massive disruptions by angry populations, and massive corruption being exposed at the highest level of most governments. These problems are bringing many of these countries to their knees financially, with inter tribal wars, civil wars, national wars, wars over land boundaries, wars over ocean and sea boundaries, trade war tariffs, and the threat of world war from several anti western nations being made against the Western coalition of nations, and America in particular.
Finally, hatred of Jews and True Christians is becoming endemic in almost every nation, as witnessed recently when the UN General assembly voted overwhelmingly against Israel with the resolution against Israel passing with 120 votes against Israel and only 8 votes for them, and 45 countries not participating in the vote. Hatred for all God’s people is increasing rapidly in most countries around the world. All these things were foretold to be signs of Jesus imminent return for His Bride, the true church, BOTH Jewish AND Gentile Christians who are committed to obeying God and HIS WORD.
WAKE UP CHURCH These are the very signs Jesus said precede His imminent return, Luke 21:28 Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.” All of these things began to happen some ten or more years ago. The people of Jesus’ time were given three and a half years of Jesus’ miracles and ministry, and they missed it. The Church has had at least ten years of fulfilled signs; is the Church also about to miss the time of their visitation?
Sadly the Bible strongly implies that that will be the case. First comes the apostasy, the desertion from the truth of God’s word, 2Thess 2:3 Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away (Apostasia) comes first. Rev 7:9 “After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes”. Rev 7:13 tells us WHO they are! “Then one of the elders answered, saying to me, “Who are these arrayed in white robes, and where did they come from?” Rev 7:14 And I said to him, “Sir, you know.” So he said to me, “These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.” These are the deserters, the “semi believers, the “God is love so He won’t send us to hell” believers, who when they realise they have missed their DAY of VISTATION, will repent and turn to Jesus, but it will most likely cost them their heads if they want to be part of that great multitude that no man can number.
WAKE UP CHURCH — KNOW THE TIME IS AT HAND In Luke 19:43-44 Jesus warned the unbelievers of His day what was going to happen to those who did not heed His warning, and while most Christians fled and escaped when they saw the armies coming, the unbelieving Jews remained, and were wiped out by the Roman armies of the day. The Church has also been warned, PREPARE YOURSELVES, flee from sin and be holy. Do God’s will, not our own. Love God and our neighbours. Watch and wait. It is during this time we need to be preparing for our redemption because it truly is, at hand. If we don’t then we face death and destruction, exactly the same if not even worse, than the early unbelieving Jews did. For the True Believers, can I finish by encouraging you with the words of Jesus in Luke 21:28 Now when these things BEGIN TO HAPPEN, look up and lift up your heads, because YOUR REDEMPTION DRAWS NEAR.” I BELIEVE IT IS VERY NEAR! The whole world KNOWS that something is up, things are not as they should be.
