Hey, did you all know that Jesus Christ has been on earth since 1979? Yup, it's true. And he's got more than 300,000 followers!
Matthew 24:24 For there will appear false Messiahs and false prophets performing great miracles -- amazing things! -- so as to fool even the chosen, if possible. (CJB)
Deuteronomy 13: 1 “When there arises among you a prophet or a dreamer of dreams, and he shall give you a sign or a wonder, 2 and the sign or the wonder shall come true, of which he has spoken to you, saying, ‘Let us go after other mighty ones – which you have not known – and serve them,’ 3 do not listen to the words of that prophet or that dreamer of dreams, for יהוה your Elohim is trying you to know whether you love יהוה your Elohim with all your heart and with all your being.
4 “Walk after יהוה your Elohim and fear Him, and guard His commands and obey His voice, and serve Him and cling to Him. 5 “And that prophet or that dreamer of dreams is put to death, because he has spoken apostasy against יהוה your Elohim – who brought you out of the land of Mitsrayim and redeemed you from the house of bondage – to make you stray from the way in which יהוה your Elohim commanded you to walk. Thus you shall purge the evil from your midst. (ISR)
I've had to unfriend a few people on FB because they were insisting that Yeshua has (I kid you not), been born in Israel and is currently preparing to make His presence known to the world! They even claim that there is some substantial evidence in support of this claim. (I didn't request any further information from them!)ReplyDelete
Likewise, I've heard that the two witnesses are alive and well and will be revealed to the world in either 7 or 11 years.
I must admit, I've been sadly perturbed by what I'm hearing and reading in Messianic circles these days.
(I won't even get started on the advice that was generally agreed to be sound, that those seeking fellowship but unable to find a Messianic congregation, should attend a SDA church, because "they're basically identical"!)
It just goes to show that since the dawn of time, man has felt more comfortable following anyone other than YHVH. His presence, although we all claim we want to be in, is going to shock us all. I don't think one single person in the Bible who ever encountered Him or His glorified Messiah was still on their feet.ReplyDelete
Its sad that we have taught such a benign character to our children and our world, of the God we serve. We have done ourselves no favors, that's a fact!
I just found this blogsite and enjoy the articles. Thanks for your perspective.
