Re: Tears in my eyes!
I just read your "praise report" about the help you have received from various people that read your website. Isn't is just wonderful how our Lord, through them, has taken care of you??? That is the church in "good working order"... taking care of each other just like in the early church. To help answer the lady with the "church" question...I feel that we need people around us (in close physical contact) that we can be accountable to. Also...how would we lay hands on and pray for each other unless we were in a close relationship? I pray she keeps looking...and praying...our Lord will lead her to exactly the right place.

Grace and peace from our Lord, Jesus to you! :)

My reply

If someone had told me ahead of time how it was going to be, I wouldn't have believed it. I'll never forget the time Ed walked in with tears in his eyes and a choked-up voice, saying, "He sent it to me." The daily news doesn't sound like it, but there are some really beautiful people in this world. After the Rapture, I'd like very much to meet every one of them. It will sure be nice to live among that kind of caring people all the time. Agape

Looks like the mark of the beast is here. Scary stuff... Click the link below. http://dailynews.netscape.com/mynsnews/story.tmpl?table=n&cat=51180&id=200202261956000188605

U.S. to Weigh Computer Chip Implant
2-27-02 WASHINGTON (AP) - A Florida technology company is poised to ask the government for permission to market a first-ever computer ID chip that could be embedded beneath a person's skin....

The chip has drawn attention from several religious groups.

Theologian and author Terry Cook said he worries the identification chip could be the "mark of the beast," an identifying mark that all people will be forced to wear just before the end times, according to the Bible.

Applied Digital has consulted theologians and appeared on the religious television program the "700 Club" to assure viewers the chip didn't fit the biblical description of the mark because it is under the skin and hidden from view.

Note: I think it could be the Mark of the Beast.

My reply to e-mail too long to reproduce here

Thanks for sending me the interesting piece on "The Rapture: A Moment Of Glory," by Leon O. Poole, Salvation.com. It was nice to read something that I could pretty much agree with. I might be able to help somewhat on a few minor points. Before I get into that, I'd like to show you the part that I especially liked, because I had not thought of "ek" being used in John 17:15. I made a note of that in my Bible. Poole made a good point. Here is what he said:

> > In addition to the Scripture in John 14:1-3, Jesus Christ made a promise to the Church of Philadelphia, Revelation 3:10. He promised to keep them out of (Greek "ek") the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth
> > Surely, Jesus does not want His people to partake of the evils of the world. Also, He does not want His people to partake of the events of the Great Tribulation.
> > The only other place where such a usage of the Greek word "ek" is so used, is in John 17:15. "I pray not that Thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that Thou shouldest keep them from (Greek "ek", out of) the evil." He didn't pray that God would keep them as participants IN the evils.

The word "ek" is actually translated both ways in this verse. In "out of the world," "ek" is translated "out of," and he showed us where it was translated "from."

> > The point is that we are to be gathered unto Christ BEFORE the DAY of Christ dawns, before the man of sin is revealed.

II Thess. 2:2 should be day of the Lord instead of day of Christ. Almost all the major MSS have day of the Lord. That has been corrected in other versions. The RSV, ASV, BBE, Darby and Weymouth have day of the Lord. The meaning is that the millennial Day of the Lord was not "at hand" in those days. It hasn't come yet, and the first Rapture must come before the Day of the Lord comes. I think the second Rapture is on the first day of the millennial Day of the Lord.

The "falling away" is "apostasia," the departing," as in several early Bibles, i.e., the Pre-Trib Rapture. It must precede the revealing of the False Prophet when he confirms the covenant of Dan. 9:27 as the Tribulation begins.

I think the Day of Christ, or more precisely, the Day of the Son of Man, is the Rapture. There are two Days of the Son of Man, just as there are two Raptures. Luke 17:22,23 says, "he said unto the disciples, The days will come, when ye shall desire to see one of the DAYS OF THE SON OF MAN, and ye shall not see it. And they shall say to you, See here; or, see there: go not after them, nor follow them." If left behind the first time, they need this advise during the Tribulation. Verse 26 says, "And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the DAYS OF THE SON OF MAN."

> > Those under the altar in Revelation 6:9 are Jewish saints, who were slain BEFORE Jesus came the first time. Therefore, they are not IN Christ. They will be raised to life at the time of Daniel 12:1, which is during the time of the Great Tribulation.

I think those martyrs under the altar are Tribulation martyrs. I don't see how these could include any martyrs that preceded the Pre-Trib Rapture. Both Old Testament saints and the Bride of Christ will be part of the Pre-Trib Rapture. Heb 11:40 says, "God having provided some better thing for us, THAT THEY WITHOUT US SHOULD NOT BE MADE PERFECT."

Since there is one body, I assume that the OT saints are in Christ. 1Co 12:13 says, "For by one Spirit are we all baptized into ONE BODY, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit." That is not hard for me to see, because the Pre-incarnate Christ dealt with man from Adam to Jesus. I think the angel of the Lord that talked to Abraham was Christ. John 1:18 says, "No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him."

Christ dealt with Moses at Sinai. Isa. 48:16-18 says, "Come ye near unto me, hear ye this; I have not spoken in secret from the beginning; from the time that it was, there am I: and now the Lord GOD (the Father), and his Spirit (the Holy Spirit), hath sent me (the Pre-incarnate Christ). Thus saith the LORD (YHVH), thy Redeemer (Christ, YHVH of hosts, Isa. 44:6), the Holy One of Israel; I am the LORD thy God which teacheth thee to profit, which leadeth thee by the way that thou shouldest go. O that thou hadst hearkened to MY COMMANDMENTS! then had thy peace been as a river, and thy righteousness as the waves of the sea."

Isa. 44:6 says, "Thus saith the LORD (YHVH) the King of Israel, AND his redeemer the LORD (YHVH) of hosts; I am the first (YHVH King of Israel), AND I am the last (YHVH the Redeemer); and beside me there is no God."

Rev. 22:13 says, "I am Alpha AND Omega, the beginning AND the end, the first AND the last. V. 16 says, "I am the root (YHVH king of Israel) AND the offspring of David" (YHVH the Redeemer).

Christ is the Creator (John 1:3). Heb. 1:1-4 says, "God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by (en, in) his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high; Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they."

II Cor. 5:9 makes it clear. It says, "God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself."

> > The unnumbered multitude in Revelation 7:9 are seen in heaven BEFORE the antichrist appears in Revelation chapter thirteen. In addition, notice that nothing is said about them having overcome the antichrist. If they lived on the earth during the time of the beast, it's unlikely that the Scripture would omit their victory over him. It acknowledges the victory of saints over the beast, his number and his name in Revelation chapters 15:2 and 20:4.

Chapter 13 starts at the beginning of the Tribulation. The Tribulation saints of Rev. 7:9,14 are in Heaven between the breaking of the 6th (Rev. 6:12) and 7th seals (Rev. 8). Rev. 15:2 and 20:4 are talking about these same Tribulation saints.

> > QUESTION: "When did they escape? The Book of Revelation lists more than one resurrection. Apparently during the first forty two months of the Great Tribulation, they in Revelation 7:9 will arrive in heaven

I think the Pre-Wrath Rapture will take place on the first day of the millennial Day of the Lord. On that Feast of Trumpets, I expect them to be caught up before noon when the asteroids of Rev. 8:8,10 impact Earth (Zeph. 2:4,5). The saints are not appointed to wrath. 1Th 5:9 says, "For God hath NOT APPOINTED US TO WRATH, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ."

At that point, every believer is in Heaven (to receive their rewards at the Judgment Seat of Christ) and every unbeliever is on Earth (to receive the wrath of God). However, all Israel will be saved that day. They and the "sheep" of Mt. 25:32f will populate Earth to start the Millennium. After the Second Advent and Armageddon, some of the saved of Israel will be put on Earth. Abel, Enoch, Noah, Abraham and Sara have chosen the heavenly New Jerusalem instead (Heb. 11:4-16). Agape

From: Rich Pope, Re: Yshuw'ah, yesha, yasha, Yeshua

Yeshuah is "feminine" because of the "ah" ending. Are you going to equate the feminine Yeshuah with masculine Yehoshua? And although yasha does mean savior, it isn't a personal noun, it's a common noun. And Jesus' name in Hebrew is Yehoshua, Yeshua is Aramaic.

In Hebrew Yehoshua means "YHVH is salvation". That's what Jesus' name means. It doesn't mean, "I am salvation". Rich

(Later:)
I'm glad that you have a copy of the Stone Edition of the Old Testament. Now you have in your hands something that will provide you with an accurate English translation to what the Hebrew actually says. Since Jews don't try to convert others to their faith (in fact they discourage converts), there is no hidden agenda with this translation.

So when the Hebrew reads "almah" the Stone Edition simply renders it as "young woman" as it should be rendered and not "virgin" like many (not all) of the Christian translations render it.

I hope your studies provide you with a growing closeness to God. It isn't my place, nor is it my intention to tell you that Christianity is the wrong path because it is my personal belief that Y'shua was a Torah-observant Rabbi who taught his disciples to be the same and that there are some correct teachings to be found in the New Testament from Rabbi Y'shua himself. My gripe is with poor translation or biased translations that lead people to the wrong conclusions. Have a great and healthy life. Rich

My reply

It doesn't matter which gender similar words are. What is so neat is that God didn't miss a trick in leaving clues to point us to our precious Saviour. Yeshuah is feminine, and yet translated as deliverance, health, help, helping, salvation, saving health, welfare and save. None of those seem to have any feminine connotation either, so don't ask me why it is feminine. I don't know why.

< < In Hebrew Yehoshua means "YHVH is salvation".

Amen. Mt. 1:23-25 (KJV) says, "Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name EMMANUEL, which being interpreted is, GOD WITH US. Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife: And knew her not till she had brought forth HER FIRSTBORN SON: and he called his name JESUS." Here, the original is the Greek form, (Iesous) of the Hebrew Yehoshua, meaning Saviour. God told us a lot in those few words. Emmanuel is the Saviour called Yehoshua/Yeshua/Y'shua/Jesus.

This ties in with Isa. 7:14 (Stone Ed.) says, "Hear now, O House of David: Is it not enough for you that you scorn human [prophets], that you scorn even my God? Therefore, my Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold the maiden (almah, unmarried female) will become pregnant and bear a son, and she will name him Immanuel "(Immanuwel, with us is God).

Almah can be used when referring to a virgin. It is used when referring to Rebecca in Gen. 24:43. The Stone Edition says, "let it be that the young woman (almah) who comes out to draw and to whom I shall say, "Please give me some water to drink from your jug..." In Gen. 24:15,16, "Rebecca was coming out...Now the maiden was very fair to look upon; a VIRGIN whom no man had known."

Gen. 3:15 (Stone Ed.) says, "I will put enmity between you (the serpent) and the woman, and between your offspring and HER OFFSPRING (Y'shua/Jesus, the seed of the woman). He will pound your head, and you will bite his heel." Isa 43:3 (Stone Ed.) says, "HASHEM (YHVH) your God (Elohim), the Holy One of Israel, your Savior (Yasha). So YHVH is both Elohim and Yasha.

How can that be? II Cor. 5:19-21 explains, "God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God. For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him."

Luke 2:11 says, "unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ (annointed, i.e., the Messiah) the Lord."

Isa. 9:5,6 (Stone Ed.) tells us, "For a CHILD (his humanity) has been born to us, a SON (his deity) has been GIVEN to us, and the dominion will rest on his shoulder; the Wondrous Adviser, MIGHTY GOD, ETERNAL FATHER, called his name Sar-shalom [Prince of Peace]; upon the one with the greatness in dominion and the boundless peace that will prevail on the throne of David and on his kingdom, to establish it and sustain it through justice and righteousness, from now to eternity. The zealousness of HASHEM (YHVH), Master of Legions, will accomplish this!"

Israel will not have true peace until they recognize their true Messiah. Hosea 5:8-6:3 (Stone Ed.) says, "Sound a shofar in Gibeah, a trumpet in Ramah; shout in Beth-aven, '[The enemy is coming (Gog,s army, Eze. 38)] after you, Benjamin!' Ephraim will be bewildered in the day of rebuke; AMONG THE TRIBES OF ISRAEL I MADE THE TRUTH KNOWN. The officers of Judah were like those who shift the boundaries; upon them I will pour out MY WRATH like water....I will go, I will return to My place (Heaven) until they will acknowledge their guilt and seek My face; in their distress they will see Me. [They will say] "Come, let us return to HASHEM, for He has mangled [us] and He will heal us; He has smitten and He will bandage us. He will heal us after two days (after 2000 years); on the third day (in the 3rd millennium) He will raise us up and we will live before Him (fulfilled in 1948). Let us know, let us strive to know HASHEM like the dawn whose emergence is certain; then HE WILL COME TO US LIKE THE RAIN, LIKE THE LATE RAIN (Nisan 1) that satiates the earth."

Eze. 29:17 sets the date, "in the first [month], on the first of the month" (Eze. 45:18,21, Nisan 1, first day of the Jewish Regnal Year). Then verse 21 says, "On that day I will cause the might (i.e., the king) of the House of Israel to sprout, and I will thus grant you an opening of the mouth (the Logos, the Word, i.e., Yeshua) in their midst, and they will know that I am HASHEM (YHVH)."

John 1:1-5,14 (KJV) says, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and THE WORD WAS GOD. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.... And THE WORD WAS MADE FLESH, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth."

Heb. 1:1-3 explains to Hebrews that "God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days (i.e., past the mid-mark of the 7000 years of man's testing) spoken unto us by ('en," in) HIS SON, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the RIGHT HAND of the Majesty on high."

This son is called "the arm of the Lord" in Isa. 53. "HASHEM inflicted upon him the iniquity of us all." He died for the sins of the whole world. This took sin out of the way as an issue in salvation. Now, it is, "What think ye of Christ? whose son is he?" (Mt. 22:42).

Pro 30:4,5 (Stone Ed.) says, "Who established all he ends of the earth" What is his name, and what is his son's name, if you know."

1Jo 4:14 says, "we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world."

> > it is my personal belief that Y'shua was a Torah-observant Rabbi who taught his disciples to be the same and that there are some correct teachings to be found in the New Testament from Rabbi Y'shua himself.

That shows good thinking. He said, "I and my Father are one" (John 10:30). Y'shua is the only person who never sinned. He lived under the law so that he could deliver us from the law that kills. He is our Passover Lamb. He died that we could live. Because of who he is, death could not hold him. After his resurrection, he ascended to Heaven in full view of men.

Acts 1:9-11 (KJV) says, "And when he (Y'shua) had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight. And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven." That day is fast approaching.

Tit 1:4 "Grace, mercy, and peace, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ our Saviour."

Shalom and agape, Marilyn

Re: Last Post My original intent was to make you aware of the Stone Edition of the Tanach.

I've maintained all along that this is the most accurate translation of the Hebrew text. I'm very happy to see you have a copy of it. I'm even more happy to read you are enjoying it.

So in a way, I achieved my objective...to open your eyes to a very scholarly translation of scripture. I hope you use it when you study prophecy because it will certainly make a difference in how you view things. Be well, Rich

From: BigShmooz@aol.com (Rich's friend) Re: a question... You seem to be of the opinion that the son of man (jesus) is a god. How then would you explain Numbers chapter 23 verse 19 that says he is not the son of man.

My reply

Prefix: In the following, Tanach (OT) quotes are from Artscroll's Stone Edition, and B'rit Hadashah (NT) quotes are from the Complete Jewish Bible unless otherwise noted. Words in parenthesis are my comments. Emphasis is mine.

Hi:
Not "a god," THE God, "THE arm of HASHEM" (YHVH) of Isa. 53, THE Redeemer, YHVH Master of Legions ("LORD of hosts" in the KJV). II Cor., 5:19 (KJV) explains in clear language: "God (i.e., YHVH) was in Christ (Christos, anointed, i.e., Mashiach, the anointed), reconciling the world unto himself." II Cor. 5:19 in the CJB says, "GOD IN THE MESSIAH WAS RECONCILING MANKIND TO HIMSELF, not counting their sins against them, and entrusting to us (the 12 Jewish apostles) the message of reconciliation."

God (Elohim) is both YHVH KING OF ISRAEL AND YHVH MASTER OF LEGIONS. Isa. 44:6 says, "Thus said HASHEM (YHVH), King of Israel AND its Redeemer, HASHEM (YHVH), Master of Legions: I AM THE FIRST (YHVH king of Israel) AND I AM THE LAST (YHVH Master of Legions), and aside from ME there is no God. Whoever will declare that HE (YHVH Master of Legions) IS LIKE ME (YHVH King of Israel), let him proclaim it and set forth [all the events] since I emplaced the people of antiquity! And let them tell us coming events and what is yet to happen. Be not afraid and be not terrified! Did I not make you hear of yore and tell you; and you are My witnesses: Is there a god aside from Me? There is no rock I do not know.!"

Isa. 45:21,22 says, "HASHEM (YHVH)...There is no other god besides ME; there is no righteous god besides ME AND no SAVIOR other than ME. Turn to ME and be saved, all ends of the earth, for I am God and there is no other."

Hosea 5:15-6:3 says, "I am like a lion to Ephraim and like A LION'S WHELP to the House of Judah." The face of a LION'S WHELP was seen in the Blood Moon over Jerusalem during the Lunar Eclipse of 1-9-01. A regal view of it was also seen on the left of the picture of Eta Carinae published on 6-17-01.

  

Continuing, "As for ME (YHVH Master of Legions), ME (the Mashiach, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, seed of the woman, Gen. 3:15, the Firstfruit), I will mangle and I will go: I will carry off (the rest of the sheaf of Firstfruits) and no one will rescue. I will go (i.e., ascend from Jerusalem), I WILL RETURN TO MY PLACE (Heaven) until they (Israelites/Jews) will acknowledge their guilt and seek My face; in their distress (i.e., during the 70th week of Dan. 9:27) they will seek ME. [They (Israel) will say] 'Come, let us RETURN TO HASHEM (YHVH), for He has mangled [us] and He will heal us; He has smitten and He will bandage us. He will heal us after two days (i.e., after 2000 years); on the third day (i.e., after the 3rd millennium has started) He will raise up and we will live before Him (fulfilled, Israel became a nation in 1948). Let us know, let us strive to know HASHEM (YHVH) like the dawn whose emergence is certain; then He (YHVH Master of Legions, the Redeemer) will come to us like the rain, like the late rain (latter rain of Nisan) that satiates the earth.'"

Nisan 1 is the beginning of the latter rain and the first day of the Jewish Regnal Year. The king of Israel will probably return on the first day of the Regnal Year. Like other Israelite kings, he will officially take office on Earth then, even if he actually was crowned earlier, i.e., in Heaven on the Feast of Trumpets.

I expect Machiach to come as the king of Israel on Nisan 1, maybe in 5768 (2008), near the time the 70th Week of Daniel expires. Eze. 29:17 sets the day: "In the first [month], on the first of the month." Then v. 21 says, "On that day (Nisan 1, Eze. 45:18,21) I will cause the might (qeren, horn, i.e., king) of the House of Israel to sprout, and I will thus grant you an opening of the mouth (the Logos, the Word of YHVH) in their midst, and they will know that I am HASHEM (YHVH)." Isa. 60:16 says, "then you will realize that I, HASHEM (YHVH) AM YOUR SAVIOR AND YOUR REDEEMER, the Mighty One of Jacob."

Isa. 43:1,3 says, "thus says HASHEM (YHVH), your Creator...I am HASHEM (YHVH) your God (Elohim), the Holy One of Israel, your Savior." Verses 10-14 say, "Your are My witnesses--the word of HASHEM (YHVH) -- and My servant whom I have chosen, so that you will know and BELIEVE IN ME, AND UNDERSTAND THAT I AM HE; before Me nothing was created by a god nor will there be after Me! I, Only I, am HASHEM (YHVH), and there is no deliverer aside from Me....You are my witnesses -- the word of HASHEM -- and I am God. Even before there was a day, I WAS HE...Thus said HASHEM (YHVH), your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel."

> > You seem to be of the opinion that the son of man (jesus) is a god. How then would you explain Numbers chapter 23 verse 19 that says he is not the son of man.

Nu. 23:19 says, "God is not a man that He should be deceitful, nor a son of man that He should relent. Would He say and not do, or speak and not confirm" Balak wanted Balaam to curse Israel. God would not allow it, and he made it clear that his word goes. He is neither a mere man that could be deceitful nor a mere man that could relent. He is YHVH, and what he says is exactly the way it is or ever will be.

The words "like" and "as" are symbolic language. Dan. 7:13 says, I was watching in night visions and behold! with the clouds of heaven, ONE LIKE A MAN (not just a man, but one looking like a man) came; HE came up to the One of Ancient Days (YHVH), and they brought HIM (YHVH Master of Legions) before HIM (YHVH the Ancient of Days). HE(YHVH Master of Legions) WAS GIVEN DOMINION, HONOR AND KINGSHIP, so that all peoples (Gentiles and Jews), nations and languages would serve HIM; his DOMINION would be an everlasting DOMINION that would never pass, and his KINGSHIP would never be destroyed."

How can YHVH Master of Legions be "ONE LIKE A MAN" and yet not be just a man? He is a unique being. He has two natures, that of man and that of God. Isa. 9:6 explains, "A CHILD HAS BEEN BORN to us (inheriting his human nature from his mother), A SON HAS BEEN GIVEN TO US(given, not born, inheriting his Deity from his Father), and the DOMINION will rest on his shoulder; the Wondrous Adviser, MIGHTY GOD, ETERNAL FATHER, CALLED HIS NAME SAR-SHALOM [Prince of Peace]; upon the one with the greatness in DOMINION and the boundless peace that will prevail on the throne of David and on his kingdom, to establish it and sustain it through justice and righteousness, from now to eternity. The zealousness of HASHEM (YHVH), MASTER OF LEGIONS, WILL ACCOMPLISH THIS."

Psa. 89:27,28 says, "HE (YHVH MASTER OF LEGIONS) will call to ME (YHVH) , 'YOU ARE MY FATHER, MY GOD and the Rock of my salvation!' I, TOO, WILL MAKE HIM A FIRSTBORN, SUPREME OVER THE EARTH'S KINGS."

Psa. 2:1-9 says, "Why do nations gather, and regimes talk in vain? The kings of the earth take their stand and the princes conspire secretly, against HASHEM (YHVH) and against HIS ANOINTED (Mashiach): Let us cut THEIR cords and let us cast off THEIR ropes from ourselves." He Who sits in heaven will laugh, the Lord will mock them. Then He will speak to them in His anger, and in His wrath He will terrify them: "I Myself have anointed My king, over Zion, My holy mountain!" I (YHVH MASTER OF LEGIONS) am obliged to proclaim that HASHEM (YHVH, GOD THE FATHER) said to ME (YHVH MASTER OF LEGIONS), "YOU ARE MY SON, I HAVE BEGOTTEN YOU THIS DAY. Ask of Me and I will make nations your inheritance, and the ends of the earth your possession. You will smash them with an iron rod; you will shatter them like a potter's vessel."

Prov. 30:1-6 says, "Who...ascended to heaven and descended?" (YHVH)... "Who established all the ends of the earth?" (YHVH) "WHAT IS HIS NAME?" (YHVH, God the Father), "and WHAT IS HIS SON'S NAME" (YHVH Master of Legions, SAR-SHALOM, Prince of Peace) "if you know? Every word of God is refined; He is a shield to those who trust in Him. DO NOT ADD TO HIS WORDS, LEST HE TEST YOU AND FIND THAT YOU DECEIVED."

John 1:1-18 says, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and THE WORD WAS GOD. He was with God in the beginning (Genesis 1:1)! All things came to be through him, and without him nothing made had being...He was in the world -- the world came to be through him -- yet the world did not know him. He came to his own homeland (Israel), yet his own people (Israelites/Jews) did not receive him. But to as many as did receive him, to those who put their trust in his person and power, he gave the right to become children of God, not because of bloodline, physical impulse or human intention, but because of God. THE WORD BECAME A HUMAN BEING AND LIVED WITH US, AND WE SAW HIS SH'KHINAH, THE SH'KHINAH OF THE FATHER'S ONLY SON, FULL OF GRACE AND TRUTH...For the Torah was given through Moshe; GRACE AND TRUTH CAME THROUGH YESHUA THE MESSIAH."

God cannot die. He needed one who could save mankind. All men had sinned and come short of the glory of God. Massiach, YHVH king of Israel, became the Redeemer, the Saviour, Y'shua. Only a perfect man could die for the rest of mankind (Rom. 3:23). Otherwise each man would have to die for his own sin. Sin came into the world by one man--Adam. The Redeemer paid the price. For it to apply to us, we have to accept Him as our Saviour. If we don't, we will die in our sins, and after this, the judgment. Those that die in their sins will end up in Hell. Only those that accept the only Saviour of the world will not go to Hell.

Scripture says it better than I can. Rom. 5:15 (CJB) says, "the free gift is not like the offence. For if, because of one man's offence (Adam's), many died, then how much more has God's grace, that is, the gracious gift of one man, Yeshua the Messiah, over flowed to many!"

In Matthew 22:41-45, Yeshua said, "turning to the assembled P'rushim, Yeshua put a sh'eilah to them: "Tell me your view concerning the Messiah: WHOSE SON IS HE?" They said to him, "David's." "Then how is it," he asked them, "that David, inspired by the Spirit, calls him 'Lord,' when he says, 'ADONAI said to my Lord, "Sit here at my right hand until I put your enemies under your feet."'? If David thus calls him 'Lord,' HOW IS HE HIS SON?" They couldn't reply then any more than some of them can reply now. Yeshua referred to Psa 110:1. The CJB says, "ADONAI says to my Lord, "Sit at my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool. The Stone Ed. says, "The word of HASHEM (YHVH) to my master (YHVH Master of Legions), "Wait at My right, until I make your enemies a stool for your feet."

We are now approaching the beginning of the 70th week of Daniel. The Bride of Yeshua will be caught up to Heaven before it starts She will be made up of both Gentiles and Israelites/Jews. I hope that you will be in this group, but if you are left behind, know that there will be another catching up before God's Wrath hits Earth. No believer is appointed to wrath, but those wearing spiritual white robes of righteousness will be called to Heaven first. Psa. 40:1-3 (Stone) says, "I have greatly hoped for HASHEM (YHVH); He inclined (bent down) to me, and heard my cry. He raised me (i.e., caught me up) from the pit of raging waters, from the slimy mud (i.e., from Earth). He set my feet upon a rock (Heaven) firmly establishing my steps. He put a new song (sung after the catching up in Rev. 5:9) into my mouth, a hymn to our God; multitudes shall see (the catching up) and be awed, and they shall trust in HASHEM (YHVH)."

Isa. 57:1 says, "The righteous one perishes (abad, wanders away, i.e., is caught up to Heaven), and no man takes it to heart; men of kindness are gathered in with no one understanding that because of the impending evil the righteous one was gathered in."

Shalom and agape (God's kind of love)
