‘THE LORD IS NOT SLACK…’
I have to admit, I was very disappointed when the Lord didn’t return for the saints in 2017, especially having considered the Judah Ben Samuel prophecies, and even my own dream and vision of the catching up of the saints.
Albeit, the Lord has impressed upon my heart to remember this passage of scripture,
“The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness, but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance” 2 Peter 3:9.
He has already told us not despair; He is waiting for more souls to come into the Kingdom of God.
We know that signs in heaven, such as the blood moon tetrad and the Virgo and Leo lineup of stars over Jerusalem last September; and signs in the earth, such as the uprising of the antichrist kingdom (Islam), that the Lord’s return is imminent, according to Bible prophecy, and that’s all we are really able to know, for the Word of God also tells us,
“But of that day and that hour knows no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father” Mark 13:32.
Jesus said here that the angels don’t know when He will return, nor does He even know when He will return, but the Father only. It is the Father, who will say to Jesus, “The hour has come!”
The scriptures tell us scoffers will say the Lord isn’t coming, as He promised:
“Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers walking after their own lusts, saying, Where is the promise of His coming? Since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation” 2 Peter 3:3-4.
My faith holds strong in the Lord’s return, because I have seen many Bible prophecies come to pass already to doubt God’s promise now; but there are people who ridicule and refuse to believe in His return.
Not to change the subject, but this will tie in with the Lord’s return. I found a hidden message in the Torah regarding the return of the Lord. I was studying Hebrew today and noticed that the name of Asher means several different things. That fact brought my mind back to something profound that Sharon R Allen found in 1993, while researching the root meanings of the names of our first ten ancestors, which, lined up in order of ancestry, reveals a message of salvation and redemption.
The message of salvation is derived from these ten ancestors found in Genesis 5: Adam, Seth, Enosh, Cainan, Mahalaleel, Jared, Enoch, Methuselah, Lamech and Noah. The meaning of their names combined completes the following message:
“Mankind turns their faces towards and are appointed mortal grievous sorrow to lament and mourn. God, who is praised, comes down to instruct and to consecrate. He is sent forth as a prophet-priest, to be smitten and scourged, to die, to given rest and security, a quiet attitude (peace).”
After noticing the meaning of the name of Asher today, I decided to run the same search of the root meanings of all the names of the sons of Israel (Jacob) in order of their birth, to determine if there was also a message using their names. What I found from that search was also truly amazing!
I have been asking God to reveal mysteries and secrets to me from the Word of God. I pray that prayer before I begin studying the Word every day, and I immediately knew the results of my search were a direct answer to that prayer. Here is the message from the root definitions of each of the names of Israel’s sons, lined up in order of their birth:
Hidden Message of the Lord’s Return In the Names of the Son’s of Israel
|NAME SPELLING MEANING|
|Reuben||רְאוּבֵן||see ye a Son|
|Simeon||שִׁמְעוֹן||hear – perceive|
|Judah||יְהוּדָה||worship – celebrate|
|Asher||אָשֵׁר||relieve – bless|
|Issachar||יִשָּׂשׁכָר||He will bring a reward|
|Zebulun||זְבוּלֻן||to dwell with|
|Benjamin||בִּנְיָמִין||the Son of the right hand.|
|The message within the names:
“See the Son of God, hear and perceive who He is, unite, worship and celebrate Him. Jesus will rule, wrestle with evildoers and overcome them; He will relieve and bless the saints; He will bring a reward for the saints; He will dwell with the saints, He will increase His Kingdom, the Son of the right hand of God!”
There are scriptures to back up this message concerning the Lord’s return:
“Jesus said, I Am (the Son of God), and you shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power (at God’s right hand) and coming in the clouds of heaven” Mark 14:62.
“I know their works and their thoughts; it shall come that I will gather all nations and tongues, and they shall come and see My glory” Isaiah 66:18.
“And it shall come to pass that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem, shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles” Zechariah 14:16.
“Behold, the Lord God will come with strong hand and His arm shall rule for Him; behold, His reward is with Him, and His work before Him” Isaiah 40:10.
“He shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers, even as I received of My Father” Revelation 2:27.
“Behold, the days come, says the Lord, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch (Jesus, of the lineage of David) and a King shall reign and prosper and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth” Jeremiah 23:5.
“I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself shall be with them, and be their God” Revelation 21:3.
The rabbis have probably already discovered this hidden message, but I haven’t seen any publication of it. In fact, rabbis say that the entire history of mankind is hidden in the Torah. Those who have seen these hidden secrets in the Torah, which are mathematically impossible by the way, have no doubt concluded that Yeshua (Jesus) is indeed ha Mashiach (the Messiah)!
Elim17 – 1/13/18
Are we discouraged that the Lord hasn’t returned yet? Disappointed, yes, but never discouraged! God has revealed so much already and hundreds of prophecies have already come to pass. I encourage everyone still,
“Look up, for your redemption draws near” Luke 21:28!
The Lord is only waiting a while longer. If you aren’t saved yet, He may be waiting just for you!
“Marvel not at this, for the hour is coming when all that are in the graves shall hear his voice” John 5:28.
Hundreds of Bible prophecies have been fulfilled and those remaining shall surely come to pass. Are you prepared to stand before God and give an account of the life you have lived on this earth (Revelation 20:12-15)? If not, salvation is only a prayer away. Please visit the How Can I Be Saved page – your eternal destiny depends on it. God bless you.
