To: 23,457 family units, gifted with a desire to be atOne with God.

Christianities negligence to proving all things, has some would be followers of Jesus expecting His coming to be the end. Thinking “rapture,” heaven, hell and paradise rather than end of this age and beginning a new. Prophecies about another deliverance similar but greater than from Egypt and nations seeking Israel’s God aren’t taught by traditionalist to their shame. There’s many prophecies; lets look at one.

Isaiah 29:18-24; At that time the deaf will be able to hear ‘understand’ words read from a scroll, and the eyes of the blind will be able to see through deep darkness. (The downtrodden will again rejoice in the LORD; the poor among humankind will take delight in the Holy One of Israel.) For tyrants will disappear, those who taunt will vanish and all those who love to do wrong will be eliminated — those who bear false testimony against a person, who entrap the one who arbitrates at the city gate and deprive the innocent of justice by making false charges. So this is what the LORD, the One who delivered Abraham, says to the family of Jacob: “Jacob will no longer be ashamed; their faces will no longer show their embarrassment. For when they see their children, whom I will produce among them, they will honor My name. They will honor the Holy One of Jacob; they will respect the God of Israel. Those who stray morally will gain understanding; those who complain will acquire insight.”) The Son of God’s coming as a human and His powerful preplanned return as king of kings was foretold by the prophets.

Jesus’ good news is three fold.

(1) He came witnessing to His own, reveal the Father, teach the Father’s chosen with saving faith by promised grace and give eternal life.

(MalachI 3:17; “They will belong to Me,” says the LORD who rules over all, “in the day when I prepare My own special property. I will spare them as a man spares his son who serves him.”) (John 1:11; He came to what was His own, but His own people did not receive Him.) (John 5:19; So Jesus answered them, “I tell you the solemn truth, the Son can do nothing on His own initiative, but only what He sees the Father doing. For whatever the Father does, the Son does likewise.) (John 17:1-3; When Jesus had finished saying these things, He looked upward to heaven and said, “Father, the time has come. Glorify Your Son, so that Your Son may glorify You — just as You have given Him authority over all humanity, so that He may give eternal life to everyone You have given Him. Now this is eternal life — that they know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom You sent.)

People gifted with eternal life are literally Spiritual Son’s of God. Made in the spiritual image of Jesus, go to heavenly Mt Zion in prayer and at death go there to be perfected and be in the first spiritual resurrection.

(Hebrews 12:18- 25; For you ‘followers of Jesus’ have not come to something that can be touched, to a burning fire and darkness and gloom and a whirlwind and the blast of a trumpet and a voice uttering words such that those who heard begged to hear no more.” (As did Israel when Moses went up to receive the commandments.) (20) For they could not bear what was commanded: “If even an animal touches the mountain, it must be stoned.” In fact, the scene was so terrifying that Moses said, “I shudder with fear.”) (Think Heavenly Mt. Zion in prayer.)

(Heb 12:22-25; But you ’called followers of Jesus have come to Mount Zion, the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to myriads of angels, to the assembly and congregation of the firstborn, who are enrolled in heaven, and to God, the judge of all, and to the spirits of the righteous, who have been made perfect, and to Jesus, the mediator of a New Covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks of something better than Abel’s does. Take care not to refuse the One who is speaking! For if they did not escape when they refused the One who warned them on earth, how much less shall we, if we reject the One who warns from heaven?”)

(Heb 12:26-29; Then His voice shook the earth, but now He has promised, “I will once more shake not only the earth but heaven too.” Now this phrase “once more” indicates the removal of what is shaken, that is, of created things, so that what is unshaken may remain. So since we are receiving an unshakable kingdom, let us give thanks, and through this let us offer worship pleasing to God in devotion and awe. For our God is indeed a devouring fire.”)

Age of promised faith began with Abraham;

promising resurrections and supernatural deliverances.

(2) All God’s promises to Abraham, Isaac and Moses are being kept and will continue after Jesus’ second coming, “all believers will ultimately be made heirs with Abraham.” (Galatians 3:28-20; There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female — for all of you are one in Christ Jesus. And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s descendants, heirs according to the promise.)

God the Father began Calling a predestined people, gifting faith by grace, with Abraham, promising that his heirs would be innumerable.

(Gen 22:17; I will indeed bless you, and I will greatly multiply your descendants so that they will be as countless as the stars in the sky or the grains of sand on the seashore. Your descendants will take possession of the strongholds of their enemies.”

(Heb 11:12; So in fact children ‘of faith’ were fathered by one man — and this one as good as dead — like the number of stars in the sky and like the innumerable grains of sand on the seashore.”)

God’s Word and plans are certain and no one can frustrate them.

(Isaiah 14:24-27; The LORD who commands armies makes this solemn vow: “Be sure of this: Just as I have intended, so it will be; just as I have planned, it will happen.) (Satan has used Egyptian, Assyria and Babylon cultures to be Israel’s enemies since before Nebuchadnezzar.) (25) I will break Assyria in my land, I will trample them underfoot on My hills. Their yoke will be removed from My people, the burden will be lifted from their shoulders. This is the plan I have devised for the whole earth; My hand is ready to strike all the nations.” Indeed, the LORD who commands armies has a plan, and who can possibly frustrate it? His hand is ready to strike, and who can possibly stop it?”) (Always study the whole.)

The promised to be saved by grace through faith age began with faithful Abraham; who was willing to Sacrifice Isaac, “knowing God could provide a sacrifice and knowing He could resurrect the one’s He‘s gifted by promise.”

All genuinely called followers of Jesus are spiritual Israelites, a people at One with God the Father and God the Son: to be resurrected to eternal life and serving in His millennial kingdom and beyond.

About the rapture.

Recipients of the Holy Spirit of truth, ‘people born from above’ will be changed and meet Jesus in the air at His return.

(1Thes 4”16-18; For the Lord himself will come down from heaven with a shout of command, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be suddenly caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will always be with the Lord. Therefore encourage one another with these words.)

Binding Satan a thousand years, releasing a short time

to do final deceptions before final judgments, seemingly

culminates until God the Father comes with New Jerusalem.

(3) Jesus’ setting up the kingdom of God on earth, resurrecting “David to be His Prince King,’ Jesus’ apostles over the twelve tribes and each Holy Spirit recipient with ruling responsibilities is the plan no one can frustrate. Physical resurrections, supernatural deliverances, healings and the nations yielding to Jesus’ authority is in the plan before New Jerusalem’s coming down with God the father.

(Matt 19:28; Jesus said to them, “I tell you the truth: In the age when all things are renewed, when the Son of Man sits on His glorious throne, you who have followed Me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.)

(Ezekiel 37:24-27; “My servant David will be king over them; there will be one shepherd for all of them. They will follow My regulations and carefully observe My statutes. They will live in the land I gave to My servant Jacob, in which your fathers lived; they will live in it — they and their children and their grandchildren forever. David My servant will be prince over them forever. I will make a covenant of peace with them; it will be a perpetual covenant with them. I will establish them, increase their numbers, and place My sanctuary among them forever. My dwelling place will be with them; I will be their God, and they will be My people.”)

(1Cor 6:1-3; When any of you has a legal dispute with another, does he dare go to court before the unrighteous rather than before the Saints? Or do you not know that the Saints will judge the world? And if the world is to be judged by you, are you not competent to settle trivial suits? Do you not know that we will judge angels? Why not ordinary matters!”)

Before New Jerusalem

(Rev 20:4-10; Then I saw thrones and seated on them were those who had been given authority to judge. I also saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of the testimony about Jesus and because of the word of God. These had not worshiped the beast or his image and had refused to receive his mark on their forehead or hand. They came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. (The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were finished.) This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is the one who takes part in the first resurrection. The second death has no power over them, but they will be priests of God and of Christ, and they will reign with him for a thousand years. Now when the thousand years are finished, Satan will be released from his prison and will go out to deceive the nations at the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to bring them together for the battle. They are as numerous as the grains of sand in the sea. They went up on the broad plain of the earth and encircled the camp of the Saints and the beloved city, but fire came down from heaven and devoured them completely. And the devil who deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet are too, and they will be tormented there day and night forever and ever.)

More physical resurrections, New Jerusalem and final judgment.

(Rev 20:13-15; The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and Death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each one was judged according to his deeds. Then Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death — the lake of fire. If anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, that person was thrown into the lake of fire.) (Always study the whole.)

(Rev 21:2-3; And I saw the Holy City — the New Jerusalem — descending out of heaven from God, made ready like a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying: “Look! The residence of God is among human beings. He will live among them, and they will be his people, and God Himself will be with them.)

(Rev 21:8; But to the cowards, unbelievers, detestable persons, murderers, the sexually immoral, and those who practice magic spells, idol worshipers, and all those who lie, their place will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur. That is the second death.”

Peter shares our Perfector and Pioneer’s faith’s attitude.

(1Peter 4:1-3; “So, since Christ suffered in the flesh, you also arm yourselves with the same attitude, because the One who has suffered in the flesh has finished with sin, in that he spends the rest of his time on earth concerned about the will of God and not human desires. For the time that has passed was sufficient for you ‘followers of Jesus’ to do what the non-Christians desire. You lived then in debauchery, evil desires, drunkenness, carousing, drinking bouts, and wanton idolatries.”) (Fleshly live to please themselves.)

(1Pet 4:4-6; So they ‘non-Christians’ are astonished when you do not rush with them into the same flood of wickedness, and they vilify you. They will face a reckoning before Jesus Christ who stands ready to judge the living and the dead. Now it was for this very purpose that the gospel was preached to those who are now dead, so that though they were judged in the flesh by human standards they may live spiritually by God’s standards.”)

(1Pet 4:7-11; For the culmination of all things is near. So be self-controlled and sober-minded for the sake of prayer. Above all keep your love for one another fervent, because love covers a multitude of sins. Show hospitality to one another without complaining. Just as each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of the varied grace of God. Whoever speaks, let it be with God’s words. Whoever serves, do so with the strength that God supplies, so that in everything God will be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong the glory and the power forever and ever. Amen.

(1Pet 4:12-19; Dear friends, do not be astonished that a trial by fire is occurring among you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice in the degree that you have shared in the sufferings of Christ, so that when His glory is revealed you may also rejoice and be glad. If you are insulted for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory, who is the Spirit of God, rests on you. But let none of you suffer as a murderer or thief or criminal or as a troublemaker. But if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but glorify God that you bear such a name. For it is time for judgment to begin, starting with the house of God. And if it starts with us, what will be the fate of those who are disobedient to the gospel of God? And if the righteous are barely saved, what will become of the ungodly and sinners? So then let those who suffer according to the will of God entrust their souls to a faithful Creator as they do good.”)

Pray that God have mercy on this world’s populations. That time be shortened for their and our sake. (Study Matthew 24:15-28.)

(Matthew 24:22; “And if those days had not been cut short, no one would be saved. But for the sake of the Elect those days will be cut short.”)
