Yahshua’s Elect & the Third Day Awaking

Overview

Today there are many signs that Yahshua (Jesus) will be returning soon.  The main evidence of this is that HIS people are waking up to the truth of their identity.  The prophet Hosea told us that we would heal after two days and then we will arise and know HIM.

In their affliction they will seek me early, saying, Let us go, and return to the Lord our God; for he has torn, and will heal us; he will smite, and bind us up. After two days he will heal us: in the third day we shall arise, and live before him, and shall know him:  let us follow on to know the Lord: we shall find him ready as the morning, and he will come to us as the early and latter rain to the earth.” Septuagint Hosea 6:1-4 

The apostle Peter tells us that one day equals a thousand years in Yahoveh’s timing. 

But don't forget this one thing, beloved, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slow concerning his promise, as some count slowness; but is patient with us, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” WEB 2 Peter 3:8


Therefore, since Yahshua came during the first millennium and we are now living in the third millennium which is the time that we are being healed and arising to the truth.  Right now, while truth is being revived to us, HE is allowing us time to wake up, learn and repent.  


We are really blessed to be living in this third millennium so we can experience this time of awaking!

 Three Days in the Belly of Hell

The apostles Luke and Matthew quoted Yahshua’s statement that we will be living in an evil generation and will be looking for a sign; however, none would be given but the sign of Jonah.

But he said, "On the contrary, blessed are those who hear the word of God, and keep it." When the multitudes were gathering together to him, he began to say, "This is an evil generation. It seeks after a sign. No sign will be given to it but the sign of Jonah, the prophet. For even as Jonah became a sign to the Ninevites, so will also the Son of Man be to this generation.” WEB Luke 11:28-30

The Pharisees and Sadducees came, and testing him, asked him to show them a sign from heaven. But he answered them, "When it is evening, you say, 'It will be fair weather, for the sky is red.' In the morning, 'It will be foul weather today, for the sky is red and threatening.' Hypocrites! You know how to discern the appearance of the sky, but you can't discern the signs of the times! An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign, and there will be no sign given to it, except the sign of the prophet Jonah." He left them, and departed.”  WEB Matthew 16:1-4

If the only sign we are to be given is the ‘sign of Jonah’ what more can be learned about this sign?

Now the Lord prepared a great fish to swallow up Jonas: and Jonas was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights. And Jonas prayed to the Lord his God out of the belly of the fish. And he said: I cried out of my affliction to the Lord, and he heard me: I cried out of the belly of hell, and thou hast heard my voice. And thou hast cast me forth into the deep in the heart of the sea, and a flood hath compassed me: all thy billows, and thy waves have passed over me. And I said: I am cast away out of the sight of thy eyes: but yet I shall see thy holy temple again.” DR  Jonah 2:1-5

Many of have been told that this is a prophecy about Yahshua being in the tomb three days and three nights; however I believe this prophecy is a dual prophecy.  I believe it is telling us that we will start crying out to Yahshua, from the ‘belly of hell’, in the third millennium (one thousand year) and we will be asking for HIM to return.  Then we will get to see the holy temple!

So in the third millennium we will cry of to Yahoveh in our affliction and ask see the temple again.

The Sign of the Times

Above in Matthew verse 16:4, Yahshua emphases the importance of discerning the sign of the times that we are living in.  Currently we have so many of the laws of Moses being violated today that it would take me to long to document this fact.  And what is really shame is that most Christians do not even realize the importance of following these laws; in fact most Christians today have not even bothered to read the laws of Moses. 

We are told we will know them by their fruits and the only tool we have to measure their fruits or whether something is good or evil is the laws of Moses.  People’s fruit is their actions or behaviors.  People that are born from the ‘good tree’ have good behavior but can be deceived if they have not even read the laws of Moses.

“"Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly are ravening wolves. By their fruits you will know them. Do you gather grapes from thorns, or figs from thistles? Even so, every good tree produces good fruit; but the corrupt tree produces evil fruit. A good tree can't produce evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree produce good fruit. Every tree that doesn't grow good fruit is cut down, and thrown into the fire.” WEB Matthew 7:15-18

People that have not read the laws of Moses are people that can be deceived into calling evil good.

Woe to them that call evil good, and good evil; who make darkness light, and light darkness; who make bitter sweet, and sweet bitter.” Septuagint Isaiah 5:20 

The apostle Timothy describes the time we are living today perfectly; therefore we know we are living in the ‘last days’. We need to be lovers of our Father in heaven, Yahovah and come to the knowledge of truth by reading HIS laws of Moses.

But know this, that in the last days, grievous times will come. For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, no lovers of good, traitors, headstrong, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God; holding a form of godliness, but having denied the power thereof. Turn away from these, also. For of these are those who creep into houses, and take captive gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, always learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.” WEB  2 Timothy 3:1-7

Yahshua does describe signs for us to be looking for and he also states the time will be cut short for the Elect’s sake.  To me this means towards the beginning of the third millennium and I pray this is true.

“And when he was sitting on mount Olivet, the disciples came to him privately, saying: Tell us when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the consummation of the world? And Jesus answering, said to them: Take heed that no man seduce you: For many will come in my name saying, I am Christ: and they will seduce many. And you shall hear of wars and rumours of wars. See that ye be not troubled. For these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; and there shall be pestilences, and famines, and earthquakes in places: Now all these are the beginnings of sorrows. Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall put you to death: and you shall be hated by all nations for my name's sake. And then shall many be scandalized: and shall betray one another: and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall seduce many. And because iniquity hath abounded, the charity of many shall grow cold. But he that shall persevere to the end, he shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom, shall be preached in the whole world, for a testimony to all nations, and then shall the consummation come. When therefore you shall see the abomination of desolation, which was spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place: he that readeth let him understand. Then they that are in Judea, let them flee to the mountains: And he that is on the housetop, let him not come down to take any thing out of his house: And he that is in the field, let him not go back to take his coat. And woe to them that are with child, and that give suck in those days. But pray that your flight be not in the winter, or on the sabbath. For there shall be then great tribulation, such as hath not been from the beginning of the world until now, neither shall be. And unless those days had been shortened, no flesh should be saved: but for the sake of the elect those days shall be shortened. Then if any man shall say to you: Lo here is Christ, or there, do not believe him. For there shall arise false Christs and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders, insomuch as to deceive (if possible) even the elect.”  DR Matthew 11:24

The law is not done away since it has not been yet fulfilled.  The feast of Pentecost plus the Fall Feast are not fulfilled.  Here is what Paul told the Romans after Yahshua was crucified:

For whosoever have sinned without the law, shall perish without the law; and whosoever have sinned in the law, shall be judged by the law. For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.” DR Romans 2:12-13

I do realize it is very hard to follow the laws of Moses in these day; however, we must do are best and we must strive for perfection without going to jail for stoning people as the law requires in some cases.  So please take the time, if you have not already, to read the first five books of the bible where the laws of Moses are recorded.  The laws in Leviticus were for the Levitical priests and the laws in Deuteronomy were written for us common folks today. 

Take the time to learn the behavior of good fruit by reading the first five books of the bible.
The followers of these laws are the righteous children of Yahovah.
Bad fruit does not promote Yahovah’s truth or laws; in fact they normally state they are not religious when confronted.

Three Denials of Christ

When Yahshua selected his apostles, Simon was chosen to be one of the twelve.  Yahshua changed Simon’s name to Peter.   Peter is the Greek word ‘petros’ meaning rock.

Simon, to whom he gave the name Peter.”  WEB Mark 3:16

In these verses Yahshua us that he is going to build HIS assembly on this rock which also refers to Peter.  Plus it also tells us that he will give HIS assembly or people the keys to the Kingdom of Heaven. There is another dual prophecy telling us that Yahshua will be raised from the tomb in three days and the dual is that he will come again in the third millennium.  Technically the assembly or people have not had the keys to the kingdom in the past; therefore, we should be receiving the keys in the third millennium. I believe we are waking up to the truth about the keys to the kingdom right now.

I also tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my assembly, and the gates of Hades will not prevail against it. I will give to you the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven; and whatever you release on earth will be released in heaven." Then he charged the disciples that they should tell no one that he is Jesus the Christ. From that time, Jesus began to show his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things from the elders, chief priests, and scribes, and be killed, and the third day be raised up.”  WEB Matthew 16:18-21

Here, since Peter represents Yahoveh’s chosen people that are of HIS assembly, Yahshua is telling us that we will deny knowing HIM three times. The crow represents the ‘last trump’ in the book of Revelations.

“He said three times, "I tell you, Peter, the rooster will by no means crow today until you deny that you know me."” WEB Luke 22:34

Here all of the apostles fell asleep while Yahshua prayed which represents Yahoveh’s chosen people falling asleep and entering into temptation.  Yahshua tells us to arise and wake up; be aware of what is going on around you.

And he said to them: Why sleep you? arise, pray, lest you enter into temptation.”  DR Luke 22:46

The Gospel of Luke records that Peter did deny Yahshua three times before the cock crowed. 

And apprehending him, they led him to the high priest's house. But Peter followed afar off. And when they had kindled a fire in the midst of the hall, and were sitting about it, Peter was in the midst of them. Whom when a certain servant maid had seen sitting at the light, and had earnestly beheld him, she said: This man also was with him. But he denied him, saying: Woman, I know him not. And after a little while, another seeing him, said: Thou also art one of them. But Peter said: O man, I am not. And after the space, as it were of one hour, another certain man affirmed, saying: Of a truth, this man was also with him; for he is also a Galilean. And Peter said: Man, I know not what thou sayest. And immediately, as he was yet speaking, the cock crew. And the Lord turning looked on Peter. And Peter remembered the word of the Lord, as he had said: Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice (three times). DR Luke 22:54-61

In prophecy HIS chosen people have also denied him three times now.  So the last trump of Revelation will be blowing soon.

  • The first denial during the first millennium:  I know him not’.  We denied knowing Yahshua during the Christian age of the martyrs and the Roman persecutions; many of our ancestors did this since it was the only safe thing to do.
  • The second denial during the second millennium:  ‘O man, I am not’.  We denied that we were HIS true chosen people since we forgot our identity. The Celtic, Germanic and Anglo-Saxons are HIS chosen people.
  • The third denial during the third millennium:  ‘I know not what thou sayest’. We denied HIS word documented in our bibles.  Instead we have followed and believed in the ‘leaven of the Pharisees’ that is also known as the ‘traditions of man’.  We have not been recognizing HIS word as truth.  


Knowing your identity leads to honest truth of Yahoveh’s word.  This leads to repentance of our sins and our forefathers’ sins.  Do not sell your birth right for a pot of lentil soup like Esau did instead understand your identity.

Three Measures of Meal with Hidden Leaven

Here we are being told that the kingdom of Yahovah will be completely leavened in the third millennium.  Leaven is yeast that slowly raises the bread. Plus the real meal or meat of the scriptures was hidden from his chosen people during this time.

And again he said: Whereunto shall I esteem the kingdom of God to be like? It is like to leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.”  DR Luke 13:20

Leaven always represents lies; therefore, in the third millennium the whole earth will be full of lies, just as it is today.  In the Gospel of Matthew, Yahshua refers to lies as the ‘leaven of the Pharisees’ and Sadducees. The Pharisees and Sadducees were diverse political groups just like the Republicans and Democrats are today. 

How is it that ye do not understand that I spake it not to you concerning bread, that ye should beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees? Then understood they how that he bade them not beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.” WEB  Matthew 16:11-12

We have been deceived and it is time to learn the Yahoveh’s truth.

Three Woes of Judgement

The last three trumpets come with three woes that are given by three angels.  Woe means denunciation which is a public condemnation; therefore, the three woes of Revelation are a public prosecution and condemnation.

And I beheld, and heard the voice of one eagle flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice: Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth: by reason of the rest of the voices of the three angels, who are yet to sound the trumpet.”​ DR Revelation 8:13
 “And at that hour there was made a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell: and there were slain in the earthquake names of men seven thousand: and the rest were cast into a fear, and gave glory to the God of heaven. The second woe is past: and behold the third woe will come quickly. And the seventh angel sounded the trumpet: and there were great voices in heaven, saying: The kingdom of this world is become our Lord's and his Christ's, and he shall reign for ever and ever. Amen.” DR Revelation 11:12-15

In summary, the three woes are:  

  • The first Woe during the fifth trumpet is five months of torment.  (Revelations 9:5 & 10)
  • The second Woe during the sixth trumpet sounds like a war that will last 1 year, 1 month, 1 day, and 1 hour in which a third of man will be killed. (Revelation 9:14-21)  A great earthquake will follow this with seven thousand men killed.  Then we finally repent as a nation and give glory to Yahoveh our Father in Heaven.  (Revelation 11:13-15)
  • The third Woe is when Yahoveh comes to judge the world after HIS chosen people have repented.  There will be another earthquake and hail. (Revelation 11:19)  Then the third angel will come to judge the rest of the world with fire and brimstone. (Revelation 14:9)


Conclusion

Yahshua will be building HIS kingdom here on earth with HIS chosen people who desire the truth and no longer deny him.
The signs of the very last days are all present today.
HIS Elect know he is there Father in Heaven and HE will reign forever as King in HIS Kingdom.
