The End of the Age
There is much speculation regarding the coming of the Messiah Y’shua. Many interpretations and predictions are made. How do we know what is true? What will be the sign of Y’shua’s coming? Y’shua’s disciples were also anxious to know this. The first thing Y’shua said when asked this question was to warn them to see to it that no one deceives them. This warning is for us too. There are so many theories and prophets out there. Some of these theories have been repeated so many times that is has been accepted as truth. It may seem true, but do not be deceived, test everything against YHVH’s word. That is the purpose of this article to see how Y’shua answered this question to His disciples and align it with the rest of scripture in order to give us a clearer perspective on this.
Being an overcomer and receiving the reward
There are many references in Scripture about being an overcomer. There are also promises given to those who overcome. In this study we shall look into what it means to be an overcomer in the eternal sense. We will also look into what is required of us and what was promised to those who overcome.
Lack of trust will lead to apostasy
Many people don’t realize how important it is to trust YHVH. Did you know that not trusting YHVH will lead you to apostasy? However, so many people choose to put their trust in people; people, mere creations, blessed with half-truths. They will follow them to the ends of the earth, just because they think these people have all truth revealed to them. We shall look deeper into the consequences of putting our trust in man instead of in YHVH. We shall also search the Scripture to understand when we err in this
Prophecy in the sun, moon and stars
There is an area of study that is, of recent, getting a lot of attention, that is the using of signs in heaven as prophetic displays, pointing to future events. What are these signs and are there any truth therein? Can we determine the future by the movement of stars and planets? Are we to look for signs in heaven to know what is approaching? What does the Scripture teach us in this regard? Could this be part of the strong delusion spoken of in the Scriptures? Yâ€™shua said: â€œbe careful that no one deceives you.â€
“One day is like a thousand years” and it’s prophetic significance
What is implied when Peter writes, “one day is like a thousand years” (2 Pet 3:8)? Is this a literal thousand years? We have been taught to believe that; I for one have never questioned it before. We also have to determine the context and how broad we can apply it. This study started out as a quick look-up of this phrase but, as I studied, I realized that it is a key to understanding some of the Bible prophecies.
If you will not return to Me…
Just take a look around you! There is widespread famine, tropical storms, earthquakes, wars and rumors of wars, financial hardship, moral decay and infertility. The whole earth seems to be in turmoil. Is this the beginning of the end times? Are we experiencing what Y’shua described to His disciples in Matthew 24? Are these purely natural events or are these calls from Yahovah? Do you know the cyclical pattern of punishment described in Scripture and the sequence in which these punishements occur? What will happen next and what are we to do?
