    A foreshadowing of Jesus’ good news went out long before His coming in the flesh. (Malachi 3:5-7; And I will come near to you in judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, against the adulterers, against those who swears falsely, against those that oppress the hirelings in his wages, the widow, the fatherless and that turn aside the strangers from his right, and fear not Me, says the LORD of hosts. For I am the Lord, I change not; therefore you sons of Jacob are not consumed. Even from the days of your fathers you are gone away from My ordinances and have not kept them. Return to Me and I will return to you, says the Lord of host.)

    Our teaching isn’t intended to be all in all on any particular subject. Our purpose is to encourage called out seekers of God’s truth, hoping each prayerful do bible study, and consider all things from God’s point of view. The called recognize that they’re sovereign individuals, ‘who must give account to God at His chosen time’, and responsibly is to prove, test, seek and obey according to Jesus’ revealed faith. The called are led to know comprehension, revelations, and faith aren’t scientific, nor is spiritual understanding. All these, defies human logic!

    Believing there’s something supernatural is natural to the human mind, but believing in, as in trust, and faith in Jesus isn’t spiritually natural. Believing Jesus came, and is now resurrected isn’t believing in Him, ‘believers in Him desire intimacy, ‘at one mindset with Him’, knowing, by faith that Jesus turned water into aged wine; gave physical life back to Lazarus, healed people, and gave life back through His apostle. It’s knowing by revealed faith, that Jesus is, Creator, Re-Creator, Originator of Life, Sustainer, Savior, Mediator, head of His church, and coming King of Kings.

      God’s fourth commandment; when remembered, keeps Him foremost in the mind, worshiping in spirit and truth. He wants His people to remember and know by faith that He’s, ‘I Am that I Am’, One who blesses, and in Him only, is true freedom. When the fourth command isn’t remembered, people soon follow what seems right to themselves.

    His chosen are led to know rationalizing from within the fleshly mind chooses to please self, ‘it’s yielding to the inherited animalistic nature.’ It isn’t looking to God for what is right, wrong, good and evil, but replaced by the desire to be divine, fleshly adequate, self serving, and trusting in one’s intellect. When these things aren’t believed, the result is bondage.

    Remembering God’s Sabbaths is the foundation for knowing His plan for saving the world.

(Exodus 20:8-11; in part) The seventh day is the Sabbath of the LORD your God. For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day, wherefore He blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it.

Had Israel kept God’s Sabbaths as intended, they wouldn’t have fell to the pitfalls Isaiah describe in chapter 2. When Jesus returns all Israel will subscribe, and yield to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Soon afterward other nations will come desiring to know about Israel’s God.

(Isaiah 2:1-9; Here is the message about Judah and Jerusalem that was revealed to Isaiah son of Amos. In the future the mountain of the Lord’s temple will endure as the most important of mountains, and will be the most prominent of hills. All the nations will stream to it, many people will come and say, ‘Come, let us go up to the Lord’s mountain, to the temple of the God of Jacob, so He can teach us His requirements, and we can follow His standards.’ For Zion will be the center for moral instruction; the Lord will issue edicts from Jerusalem. He will judge disputes between nations; He will settle cases for many peoples. They will beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks. Nations will not take up the sword against other nations, and they will no longer train for war.

    O descendants of Jacob, come, let us walk in the Lord’s guiding light, the Lord’s Day of Judgment. Indeed, O Lord, you have abandoned your people, the descendants of Jacob.

    For, diviners from the east are everywhere; they consult omen readers like the Philistines do. Plenty of foreigners are around. Their land is full of gold and silver; there is no end to their wealth. Their land is full of horses; there is no end to their chariots. Their land is full of worthless idols; they worship the product of their own hands, what their own fingers have fashioned. Men bow down to them in homage, they lie flat on the ground in worship.)

Descendants of Jacob are spiritually today’s New Covenant Israelites, ‘Christians’ heirs with Abraham. (Review Galatians 3:29 again) God abandoned His People, because they abandoned Him to riches, diviners, and twisters of His Word have deceived all but His Elect. One day, many will be ashamed. (Believers don’t need, ‘mountain & trees identified’, they mean governments and people.)

(Isaiah 2:10-17; Go up into the rocky cliffs, hide in the ground. Get away from the dreadful judgment of the Lord, from His royal splendor! Proud men will be brought low, arrogant men will be humiliated; the Lord alone will be exalted in that day. Indeed, the Lord who commands armies has planned a day of judgment, for all the high and mighty, for all who are proud; they will be humiliated; for all the cedars of Lebanon, that are so high and mighty, for all the oaks of Bashan; for all the tall mountains, for all the high hills, for every high tower, for every fortified wall, for all the large ships, for all the impressive ships, Proud men will be humiliated, arrogant men will be brought low; the Lord alone will be exalted in that day.)

Worldly religions don’t know, God had plans, He knew the pulls of the flesh, Satan’s successes, people’s preference to idol worship, to do what’s seems right to inherited fleshly minds. His plan is to completely eliminate Satan inspired hero idol worship, carved images, and everything that indicates the false way.

Study all Jesus’ prophecies through Isaiah. God has abandoned Israel, and the world for a set time. Only His New Covenant, called out people, believe in Jesus’ commands and spiritual teachings.

God doesn’t give consideration to mortals, ‘whose life’s breath is likened to instinctive animals’, but to the Life Giver, ‘Jesus’ and His apostles. James, Jude, Paul, and Peter experienced problems teaching God’s Way to people. Then and now people desire yielding to preeminence, delicate speech, rather than God.

Zechariah was also commissioned to teach about these latter days.

(Zech 14:1-11; A day of the Lord is about to come when your possessions will be divided as plunder in your midst. For I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem to wage war; the city will be taken, its houses plundered, and the women raped. Then half of the city will go into exile, but the remainder of the people will not be taken away. Then the Lord will go to battle and fight against those nations, just as He fought battles in ancient days.

    On that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives which lies to the east of Jerusalem, and the Mount of Olives will be split in half from east to west, leaving a great valley. Half the mountain will move northward and the other half southward. Then you will escape through My mountain valley, for the mountains will extend to Azal. Indeed, you will flee as you fled from the earthquake in the days of King Uzziah of Judah. Then the Lord My God will come with all His holy ones with Him. On that day there will be no light: the sources of light in the heavens will congeal. It will happen in one day, (a day known to the Lord) not in the day or the night, but in the evening there will be light. Moreover, on that day living waters will flow out from Jerusalem, half of them to the eastern sea and half of them to the western sea; it will happen both in summer and in winter. The Lord will then be king over all the earth.

    In that day the Lord will be seen as One with a single name. All the land will change, and become like the Arabah from Geba to Rimmon, south of Jerusalem; and Jerusalem will be raised up and will stay in its own place from the Benjamin Gate to the site of the First Gate and on to the Corner Gate, and from the Tower of Hananel to the royal winepresses. And people will settle there, there will no longer be the threat of divine extermination: Jerusalem will dwell in security.)

Extermination of Israel, ‘Jews particularly’, has been a demonic plot from before, Jesus’ ascension. Our God will shorten the time to prevent that reality. Satan’s desire to rid the world of Jews, and Christians’ is at work.

(Zech 14:12-21; But this will be the nature of the plague with which the Lord will strike all the nations that have fought against Jerusalem: their flesh will decay while they stand on their feet, their eyes will rot away in their sockets, and their tongues will dissolve in their mouths. On that day there will be great confusion from the Lord among them; they will seize each other and attack one another violently.

    Moreover, Judah will fight at Jerusalem, and the wealth of all the surrounding nations will be gathered up; gold, silver, and clothing in great abundance. This is the kind of plague that will devastate horses, mules, camels, donkeys, and all the other animals in those camps.

    Then all who survive from all the nations that came to attack Jerusalem will go up annually to worship the King, the Lord who rules over all, and to observe the Feast of Tabernacles. But if any of the nations anywhere on earth refuse to go up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the Lord who rules over all, they will get no rain. If the Egyptians will not do so, they will get no rain – instead there will be the kind of plague which the Lord inflicts on any nations that do not go up to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles. This will be the punishment of Egypt and of all nations that do not go up to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles. On that day the bells of the horses will bear the inscription “Holy to the Lord.”

    Cooking pots in the Lord’s temple will be as holy as the bowls in front of the altar. Every cooking pot in Jerusalem and Judah will become holy in the sight of the Lord who rules over all, so that all who offer sacrifices may come and use some of them to boil their sacrifices in them. On that day there will no longer be a Canaanite in the house of the Lord who rules over all.)

These prophecies are real. God’s revelations never described vehicles as we know them today. Jesus’ future rule is the prophecy. The gift of God’s loving faith in His Son, makes His people AT ONE. His Sabbaths and His calendar will be restored for all nations to observe. Roots in paganism will be destroyed. Currently the world is worshiping traditions, and fashion.

   It was in 326 AD that Catholics called selves Christians, and introduced Christmas as we know it today. In 1622 the papacy adopted Jan 1, as the year’s beginning. Allow a portion of Paul’s letter to the Galatians, close this study. We urge study of all God’s prophetic words, Jesus and His apostles teachings.

(Galatians 3:23-29; Now before, faith came we were held in custody under the law, being kept as prisoners until the coming faith would be revealed. Thus the law had become our guardian until Christ, so that we could be declared righteous by faith. But now that, faith has come, we are no longer under a guardian. For in Christ Jesus you, are all sons of God through, faith. For, all of you who were baptized, into Christ have clothed, yourselves with Christ. 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.)

Gifted faith in Jesus and His promises will help us endure the storms.
