In the last couple of weeks and months we have seen some more end-time prophecies and conspiracy theories doing the rounds and leading a lot of believers astray. When we are thinking about these end time topics, were are in good company. The disciples of our Master were also discussing the topic, but they had the advantage of asking Him the question directly. They asked Him how we will know that the end of age has come. Lots of us can easily quote His words on earthquakes and rumours of wars, but most miss the first part of His instruction. This article will do a more detailed study on this first part of the answer that most believers seem to miss. – Take heed that no one leads you astray!

Since my previous article on head coverings , I have learned a lot from the questions I have received. I appreciate all the feedback I have received and have decided to put it together in a document. I just find it easier to refer to later. I want to invite you to give me your opinion on this also. Head covering is in my opinion more important than we think. It is a symbol of Yahovah’s authority. It is however not a salvation issue and definitely not something that should cause disunity. This is also not the purpose of writing this. I want to give you my view on it and share it with you because of the blessings I enjoy since I decided to wear it.
In my previous post I wrote about how YHVH calls us back to Him. When we respond to His call and return to Him in repentance through Y’shua; He will restore us back unto Him. Sukkot is a picture of that restoration. It is a special time of gladness unto YHVH. We are redeemed by Him and He will teach us His way. He will through His Word and His cycles of righteousness teach us His manner of doing things -His set apart way. Sukkot is also a prophetic picture of the Kingdom of Heaven when Y’shua will return and rule over us . Y’shua will come for His bride and Sukkot is a prophetic picture of the wedding feast. Then comes the 8th day of complete peace and restoration unto YHVH. Will we answer His call and be restored back to Him in obedience to His Word? Will we allow Him to teach us His way?
Our journey in life is part of a cycle. Everything in life is cyclical. Just look at nature – the cycle of life… we are born into this world, we grow up and we grow old and we die. Our life can be meaningful or meaningless. Our choices determine which one it would be. In the Bible there are also different cycles: cycles of righteousness and cycles of unrighteousness; even cycles of punishment. We choose which of these cycles apply to our lives. We can choose obedience to YHVH – learning from His cycles of righteousness and live a meaningful life or choose disobedience and live with the consequences. The world is starting to experience the consequences of disobedience to Yahovah – Yahovah is calling us back to Him.
