REVEALING THE MYSTERIES OF GOD’S MESSIANIC KINGDOM
WHY, . . A MESSIANIC MOVEMENT NOW, AT THE END OF THE CHRISTIAN AGE?
The history of the Messianic Movement dates back nearly two thousand years, with the advent of the Jewish Messiah, Ha Yahshua Ha Mashiach, and the pouring out of the Ruach Kodesh (Holy Spirit) at the Jewish festival of Pentecost in 33 CE. That Messianic Movement turned from being a strictly Jewish arrangement to include the ETHNOS (gentiles, goyim), or “people of the nations”, especially after the destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple of Yahweh in 70 CE.
Thereafter, the movement went into a steady decline, devolving into the so-called Christian Church while developing Anti-Christ and Anti-Yahweh doctrines. (Please see 1John 2:18-22; 2John verses 7-9). Nevertheless, during those nearly two thousand years, the Jewish Messiah has been directing the calling and choosing of His “bride” from the Churches of Christendom. That work, by the Lord, has continued on down thru the centuries until OUR day. However, it appears that WE are near the end of that work because the so-called Christian Age is near its END. How do we know that? The apostle Paul (Shual) revealed the KINGDOM SECRET to the Gentiles and some Jews in the Messianic congregation in Rome when he said,
“There is a secret truth, my friends, which I want you to know, for it will keep you from thinking how wise you are. It is that the stubbornness of the people of Israel is not permanent, but will last only until the complete number of Gentiles comes to God.” Rom. 11:25. GNB.
So, there WE have the SECRET KINGDOM truth. What? Paul gives US TWO important ideas that are cogent to understanding that secret truth. ONE, that the Jews (Jacob) would NOT continue in their “stubbornness” and would relent of their hard heartedness to again serve their God thru Yahshua His Son. And, TWO, that there is a COMPLETE NUMBER of Gentiles that would have to come in to serve the God of the Jews forefathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob thru Yahshua Ha Mashiach; So when that was completed the Christian Age would be ended.
The aforementioned information suggests to US the understanding of the SECRET that there would be a cut off or transition period that would be discernable during the “last days” of the Christian Age. And, that during that “cut off or transition period”, a calling out of the physical sons of Abraham (Jacob) would happen and be discernable. How would it be discernable?
It would be discernable when the STUBBORNESS of the Jews was broken and many (NOT ALL AS YET) of their number would turn to Yahshua as their Messiah and savior. This is the evidence WE SEE by means of the work Yahshua Ha Mashiach and His Holy Angels are doing WITHIN THE MESSIANIC CONGREGATIONS AND GROUPS TODAY.
No, they do not all agree on doctrine, (Many even accepting and promoting some of the most ridiculous and repugnant doctrines of Christendom). Doctrine is NOT the most important factor that defines US. That which defines US is OUR personal relationship with Yahshua Ha Mashiach. But, WE DO see them AGREEING on one thing, that Jesus Christ, YESHUA (salvation), YAHUSHUA (Yahweh is salvation), IS THEIR MESSIAH!!
This is astounding, that SUDDENLY so many Jews would reject their STUBBORNESS, after nearly two thousand years, and be humbly accepting Yahshua as their Messiah; Even more so at this time, when their fathers and mothers and relatives are still languishing in Judaism, and had completely rejected Him even in the recent past. By THIS DEVELOPMENT AMONG THE JEWS, WE KNOW that WE are at the END of the Christian Age. WE can KNOW THAT NOW, is when the COMPLETE NUMBER of the GENTILES, or ETHNOS, have come in. And this circumstance has started to come about only RECENTLY, in just the last 20 years or so.
As WE have seen in earlier books and booklets, there have been various Ages that ended after they had produced the results that Yahweh God had intended for them. One example is the END OF THE JEWISH AGE, when the Jewish nation had produced the MESSIAH. That Jewish religious system, sacrifices and political world was no longer needed as Yashua Messiah appeared and fulfilled ALL of the prophecies about His foretold manifestation.
Another example is the END OF THE CHRISTIAN AGE, which is near to passing away right now. When it has fulfilled its purpose, namely producing the Messiah’s BRIDE and the COMPLETE NUMBER of Gentiles has come in, then the Christian Age is ENDED. Then Christendom’s Churches will no longer be needed and will pass out of existence and be replaced by the MESSIANIC AGE. So, NOW the question arises:
Why A Messianic Movement, NOW at the end of this, the Christian Age?
Ha Yahshua Ha Mashiach gives US the answer in His parable in Mathew chapter thirteen. Let’s examine one of them to find some fascinating answers. One parable has to do with the Christian Age and the other presents information concerning what happens at the END OF THAT (Christian) AGE. That is the one WE are interested in as it gives US insight into what is happening in OUR day. Let’s read Yahshua’s words in Matt. 13 regarding that long Christian Age and what happens at the END OF IT.
While standing in a boat on the Sea of Galilee, Yahshua spoke to the crowds, a parable about the “wheat and the tares”. The “tares” (darnel) look exactly like wheat until the harvest, only the tares or darnel are not good for food but is actually poisonous. We find him there saying,
“The kingdom of the heavens has become like a man that sowed fine seed in his field. While men were sleeping, his enemy came and over-sowed weeds in among the wheat and left. When the blade sprouted and produced fruit, then the weeds appeared also. So the slave of the householder came up and said to him, ‘Master, did you not sow fine seed in your field? How, then, does it come to have weeds?’ He said to them, ‘An enemy, a man, did this.’ They said to him, ‘Do you want us, then, to go out and collect them?’ He said, ‘No; that by no chance, while collecting the weeds, you uproot the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest; and in the harvest season I will tell the reapers, First collect the weeds and bind them in bundles to burn them up, then go to gathering the wheat into my storehouse.’” Matt. 13:24-30. NW.
You might first ask, How could the reapers tell the difference between the genuine wheat and the “tares” as they both looked the same. Well, in the harvest the wheat is bent over because it has a heavy kernel or seed in its head, at the top of the long thin sheaf. The darnel or tares, looks the same as wheat only it stands up proud and straight and is not bent over with a load like the wheat. Why? Because, the darnel or tares is both poisonous and worthless as it bears no fruit. They have no grain in them. THEY ARE EMPTY HEADED. So it is an easy matter for the workers to differentiate between the good grain bending over and the bad that bear no burden of grain. So they had to wait until the harvest to separate the good from the bad. Neither the Jews nor Yahshua’s disciples understood the parable. They were very impressed but didn’t get it. Later in private they asked him,
“Explain to us the illustration (parable) of the weeds in the field. In response he said: ‘The sower of the fine seed is the Son of man [Yahshua]; the field is the world; as for the fine seed, these are the sons of the kingdom; but the weeds are the sons of the wicked one, and the enemy that sowed them is the Devil. The harvest is a conclusion of a system of things, and the reapers are angels. Therefore, just as the weeds are collected and burned with fire, so it will be in the conclusion of the system of things. The son of man will send forth his angels, and they will collect out from his kingdom all things that cause stumbling and persons who are doing lawlessness; and they will pitch them into the fiery furnace. There is where [their] weeping and the gnashing of [their] teeth will be. At that time the righteous ones will shine as brightly as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Let him that has ears listen.’” Matt. 13:34-43. NW.
Yahshua explained to them all of the components of the parable so that they could understand it. But, what does it mean to US today? This, that WE are living at the conclusion of the “system of things.” That is, the end of the Christian System/Age and that what the Lord spoke about is happening right now, in OUR day; And that the angels are doing a specific work of sifting out all of those who are NOT SONS OF THE KINGDOM.
The Angels are also doing a reaping work. Remember Yahshua said that the Angels are the “reapers”. This means that, the Angels are also selecting and “SEALING” those who are the earthly SONS OF THE KINGDOM from those, “sons of Abraham” (Jacob), that were scattered thru-out the world (in Yahshua’s field) who do not know that they are “sons of the kingdom”. And what storehouse do you think the Angels are gathering them into? They are gathering them into the earthly STOREHOUSE of the MESSIANIC CONGREGATIONS. This also explains why so many apparent ETHNOS or Gentiles are also being gathered therein along with those claiming to be Jews.
How do WE know that? The Revelation account tells us that all of these things will happen at the END of the CHRISTIAN AGE and WORLD. Those Angels are hard at work right now doing a reaping and a SEALING WORK among the “sons of the kingdom”, MARKING THEM SPIRITUALLY in their fore-heads for a specific work in the Lord Yahshua’s Millennial Kingdom.
You noticed that they are called “sons of the kingdom” didn’t you? That is exactly what they are, male “sons of the kingdom.” That Angelic work was recorded by the Apostle John in the Revelation account where He tells US in Revelation chapter seven about the Angels SEALING work saying,
“After this I saw four angels standing upon the four corners of the earth, holding tight the four winds of the earth, that no wind might blow upon the earth or upon the sea or upon any tree. And I saw another angel ascending from the sunrising having a seal of [the] living God; and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it was granted to harm the earth and the sea, saying: ‘Do not harm the earth or the sea or the trees, until after WE have sealed the slaves of our God in their foreheads.’” Rev. 7:1-3. NW.
The work of the Angels is shown in the above scripture to be a SEALING WORK of slaves of God who are the “sons of the kingdom”. They are SEALING them SPIRITUALLY in their FOREHEADS. This is part of their work of reaping the “sons of the kingdom” at the END of this, the Christian Age. But, how many are their going to be sealed, where are they from and for what purpose? Going on in Revelation chapter seven John gives US one answer concerning the number, saying in verse four,
“And I heard the number of those who were sealed, a hundred and forty-four thousand, sealed out of every tribe of the sons of Israel:” NW.
After telling US they are the “sons of Israel” John informs US of what tribes they are from, saying in verses five thru eight,
“Out of the tribe of Judah twelve thousand sealed; Out of the tribe of Reuben twelve thousand; Out of the tribe of Gad twelve thousand; Out of the tribe of Asher twelve thousand; Out of the tribe of Naphtali twelve thousand; Out of the tribe of Manasseh twelve thousand; Out of the tribe of Simeon twelve thousand; Out of the tribe of Levi twelve thousand; Out of the tribe of Issachar twelve thousand; Out of the tribe of Zebulun twelve thousand; Out of the tribe of Joseph twelve thousand; Out of the tribe of Benjamin twelve thousand sealed.” NW.
The vision given to John by Yahshua indicated twelve tribes of the nation of Israel are represented, totaling one hundred and forty-four thousand “sons of the kingdom”. Twelve thousand from each approved tribe.
Interestingly, Dan and Ephraim are disapproved and omitted with Joseph and his first born son Manasseh replacing them as full tribes and faithful worshippers of the God of Israel, Yahweh.
Both Dan and Ephraim proved unfaithful to Yahweh, the God of Israel, and did NOT repent of their idolatry. The entire eighteenth chapter of Judges is devoted to Dan’s revolt against Yahweh and his unabated history of idol worship until taken into captivity by the Assyrians around 722 BCE; A period of unrepentant idolatry that lasted nearly eight hundred years.
During that period, the Ten Tribe kingdom rejected the kingdom of David and established their own RULER-SHIP outside of Yahweh’s arrangement of true worship. This revolt was lead by Jeroboam and his tribe of Ephraim. In 1Kings 12:16 and 20 it tells US that the people wanted democratic self-determination and so rejected Yahweh’s RULER-SHIP thru David’s approved lineage. Because Solomon’s son Rehoboam would not listen to the people and exacted more taxes on them, the people said,
“What share do we have in David? And there is no inheritance in the son of Jesse. To your gods [in your tents], O Israel. Now see to your own house, O David.” With that Israel began to go to their tents.” 1Kings 12:16. NW. Later when Jeroboam had returned from Egypt, all of Israel turned out to vote. Verse twenty of 1Kings chapter twelve says,
“And it came about that as soon as all Israel heard that Jeroboam had returned, they at once sent and called him to the assembly and made him king over all Israel. None became a follower of the house of David except the tribe of Judah by itself.” 1Kings 12:20 NW.
With the rejection of the house of David and his God, Yahweh, the nation of Israel was split into two parts; the 10 tribes of Israel in the north and the 2 tribes of Judah and Benjamin in the south. But, the people were still going up to Jerusalem to worship in the Temple of the True God Yahweh. Consequently, Jeroboam made two golden calves and said to the people,
“It is too much for you to go up to Jerusalem. Here is your God, O Israel, That brought you up out of the land of Egypt.” Then he placed the one in Bethel, and the other he put in Dan. And this thing came to be a cause of Sin, and the people began to go before the one as far as Dan.” 1Kings 12:28-30. NW.
Both Dan and Ephraim are jointly guilty of revolt and rebellion against the kingship of David and the true worship of the God of Israel, Yahweh. By setting up their own self-willed RULER-SHIP and false worship, thus rejecting Yahweh’s form of worship and governmental RULERSHIP, they forfeited any future RULER-SHIP in the Davidic kingdom of Yahweh.
Therefore, Ephraim and Dan are left out of the Revelation account of those that Yahweh is NOW preparing for future RULER-SHIP in the glorious earthly Kingdom of David, under Yahshua Ha Mashiach’s heavenly Kingdom Administration. The Apostle Paul mentions that administration in the Ephesians chapter one, verses eight thru ten, where he says,
“This he [God] caused to abound toward us in all wisdom and good sense, in that he made known to us the sacred secret [G3466 musterion= secret or mystery] of his will. It is according to his good pleasure which he purposed in himself for an administration at the full limit of the appointed times, namely, to gather all things together again in the Christ [Messiah], the things in the heavens and the things on the earth.” Eph. 1:8-10. NW.
Yes, that is the KINGDOM SECRET that is now coming to fruition by Yahshua’s direction, to gather the things in heaven and the things on earth for a NEW type of governmental administration and RULER-SHIP OVER and ON this earth. That earthly part of the New Administration is what the Angels are NOW working on, by SEALING a 144,000 earthly “sons of the kingdom” (Not of the Bride) for future RULER-SHIP of earth’s billions now living and the untold billions that are in sheol, the grave, that Yahshua will bring back in a resurrection to earthly life. See John 5:21-30; Dan. 12:1, 2.
But, how will those 144,000 know that they have been sealed by the Angels and will have such RULER-SHIP? The Lord Yahshua explains it himself in Mathew chapter twenty-five verses thirty-one thru forty-six. Starting in verse thirty-one WE read about those Bridesmaids and Faithful Slaves,
“When the Son of man arrives in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit down on his glorious throne. And all the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate people one from another, just as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. And he will put the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on his left. Then the king will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who have been blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the founding of the world.”
There are several things that Yahshua mentions that WE need to be aware of in that scripture. (1) That he has returned in the glory of his heavenly Kingship; (2) That all of the nations are gathered before him; (3) That he then separates them; (4) That he then awards an earthly KINGDOM TO THOSE WHO ARE HIS EARTHLY SHEEP, “the sons of the kingdom.”
But, what kingdom is it? It certainly in NOT the KINGDOM OF THE HEAVENS. Why? Because, he has already received his Kingship from his Father Yahweh and has come back from heaven as KING in “kingdom power”. The kingdom He gives to the earthly “sons of the kingdom” is the kingship of David. It is KINGSHIP OF EARTH that was promised, “from the founding of the world,” in fulfillment of the promises and covenants to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and David.
The phrase, “from the founding of the world,” means from the founding of the promises made by Yahweh to Abraham and his genetic seed, which constitutes the Abrahamic World of the “seed of Abraham.” In this way, “all the families of the earth will be blessed”, by means of Abraham’s earthly physical seed thru Isaac and Jacob/Israel and his spiritual seed within the heavenly “bride” class. These are the ones that Yahshua called the “sons of the kingdom,” which are destined to appear at the END of the Christian Age, when the COMPLETE NUMBER of anointed gentiles had “come in.” These, “sons of the kingdom” are the ones Yahshua is sealing for earthly kingdom RULER-SHIP NOW, by means of His Angels, and is gathering them into His Earthly Storehouse of the Messianic congregations.
This secret reveals why there is a MESSIANIC MOVEMENT NOW, at the END OF THE CHRISTIAN AGE; The purpose being, for the gathering of the “sons of the kingdom” into Yahshua’s storehouse and later awarding them RULER-SHIP on earth, when He returns in His KINGDOM POWER.
What a wonderful privilege those within the Messianic congregations have to be able to work with the Holy Angels and the Lord Yahshua himself in helping “the sons of the kingdom” particularly at this time, THE END OF THE CHRISTIAN AGE.
A NOTE TO CHRISTIANS:
There is no greater work or ministry for Anointed Christians and/or Christian Ministers NOW than to work with and help the Messianic Jews and their congregations understand how they will fit into the Messianic Kingdom arrangement under the heavenly Ruler-ship of the “bride” and the King of heaven and earth, Yahshua Ha Mashiach.
