“And this word, Yet once more, signifies the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.” –Hebrews 12:27
That is right beloved ones; a great shaking is on the horizon. Let us cry out, “Prepare our hearts Yahuwah, for you are just and true.” This majestic shaking will occur, so that every line may be drawn in the sand. What this means is that you, your spouse, your children along with everyone else will be tested and tried. This amazing event will end with the wheat separated from the tares. As gold is refined, so shall each of us be. When the great shaking is upon the world scene, the flock of believers will drastically diminish. It has been written, “Though Yisra’el be as the sand of the sea only a remnant shall be saved!” (Romans 9:27). I ask you, are you part of that remnant?
No more shall the remnant be a house of confusion. We, the remnant shall become a house of unity. Rise up; ole Philadelphia congregation! For it is by your brotherly love, that Yahuwah seeks to have in His coming Kingdom! This perfect love will cast out all fear, even in the face of a fiery furnace. Standing in the beheading line will be a welcomed honour. Worthy only to those humble servants seeking to please the Father, by becoming a living sacrifice! Despite the world being in chaos, the remnant will have exceedingly peace (shalom).
By the grand shaking [Beginning of Sorrows], the remnant shall be shook of all matters of wickedness that offend Yahuwah. Therefore, consider your ways, oh house of Yisra’el! For you shall be shaken of all selfishness, whoring, uncleanness, indecency, idolatries, hatred, quarrels, grumblings, jealousies, fits of rage, unforgiveness, pride, haughtiness, all manner of lust, strife, envy, murders, gossipers, liars, drunkards, witchcraft and even drug sorceries”. All these will not be permissible in His Kingdom. You shall be shaken!
The main purpose of the “Beginning of Sorrows” is to humble the faithful servants. Thus, preparing the remnant for what follows, the “Great Distress” known as “Jacob’s Trouble”. During the “beginning of sorrows“, [which leads up to Jacob’s Trouble] believers will find themselves having to give up practically all personal belongings. As it has been written:
“Yahushua said, ” And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or lands, for my name sake, shall receive a hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.” –Matthew 19:29
I pray, you the reader will be able to overcome! Can you overcome your un-believing family? Please know that Yahuwah has told us that He will call two from a clan! Do not let your family become an idol, pulling you away from your first love! What about your apartment? Your house? What about all those sentimental items you hold so close to your heart? Your gold and silver? Your favorite television shows? Your grandma’s old time recipes? You must overcome all forms of lust. Will you be able to do this with joy in your heart? Sadly, the majority will not be able to do this just as it was so long ago:
“And it came to be, when the people were as complainers [this attitude will not be permit in the coming kingdom], it was evil in the eyes of Yahuwah. And Yahuwah heard it, and His displeasure burned. And the fire of Yahuwah burned among them, and consumed those in the outskirts of the camp.“-Numbers 11:1
Wow! Yahuwah despised complaining so much, He literally put a stop to that attitude. It would have only been a matter of time before this evil as Yahuwah saw it, would have spread over the whole camp like some terminal cancer. This contagious plague, which was rapidly growing within the camp had to be eliminated. Sadly, it would only be for the time being.
“And the mixed multitude [not all who claim to be Yisra’el are] who were in their midst lusted greatly [we must be freed from the spirit of lust], so the children of Yisra’el also wept again and said, “Who is giving us meat to eat?” We remember the fish which we ate without cost in Mitsrayim, the cucumbers, and the melons, and the leeks, and the onions, and the garlic, but now our throat is dried up. There is naught to look at but this manna!” [The people were not satisfied with the food Yahuwah provided, they lusted for meat] –Numbers 11:4-6
Despite seeing firsthand how Yahuwah just destroyed those complainers, most of them still were not satisfied. Their hearts hungered which caused them to lust. This cost them their lives. These people saw how the Mighty One of Yisra’el delivered them with an outstretched arm. Yet they could not overcome their wantons.
When the “Beginning of Sorrows” is upon the world, there will be a mix multitude (Numbers 11:4) of so called believers. The tares are indeed growing amongst the wheat.
Ponder; this will not be like looking out into a wild field seeing green grass mixed with weeds. To the contrary, the tares look just like the wheat. It is not until after the great shaking is complete that the two will be distinguished from each other.
Among this group [those that claim to be believers] we can expect complainers and those who lust:
“And Mosheh heard the people weeping throughout their clans, each man at the door of his tent. And the displeasure of Yahuwah burned exceedingly. And in the eyes of Mosheh it was evil.” –Numbers 11:11-10
“You are going to eat, not one day, nor two days, nor five days, nor ten days, nor twenty days, but for a month of days, until it comes out of your nostrils and becomes an abomination to you, because you have rejected Yahuwah [He took this as a rejection] who is among you, and have wept before Him, saying, “Why did we come up out of Mitsrayim.” [Now they really did it as they could not overcome their wantons] –Numbers 11:19-20
“The meat was still between their teeth, before it was chewed, and the wrath of Yahuwah burned against the people, and Yahuwah smote the people with an exceeding great plague.” –Numbers 11:23
“Then he called the name of that place Qibroth Hattaa’wah, because there they buried the people who had lusted.” –Numbers 11:34
Since their hearts overflowed with complaining they did not make it into the promise land. Yahuwah is telling us loud and clear, that all matters that offend Him will not be in His coming Kingdom. Just as it was then, so it will be again. Many so called believers will have their hearts set on the Babylon lifestyle. I speak a truth, many of us are spoiled with the comforts of modern day living. A lifestyle of sugar coated poisons. These poisons beloved ones will indeed hinder some and cause many to fall.
Let us not forget that a three day journey not only lasted forty years but that evil generation did not make into the promise land. Even after they saw the promise land they feared, did not trust nor were they obedient towards Yahuwah. They grumbled saying, “If only we had died in the land of Mitsrayim! Or if only we had died in this wilderness!” –Numbers 14:2. Therefore, they got want they wanted, they died in the wilderness!
Those who will not be able to endure will eagerly except and confuse the “beginning of sorrows” for the great distress [Jacob’s Trouble]. Sadly, they will embrace the counterfeit reign of the S.O.P. (Son of Perdition) for the real kingdom of Yahushua! They will not be able to wait for the real Bridegroom as their hearts will cave in with their wantons! That is why Yisra’el is likened to the sand of the sea, [unable to be counted] yet only a remnant [that is, a few] shall be saved.
Through this event, known as Jacob’s Trouble, [The Great Distress] Yahuwah will be greatly esteemed. As time of old, His faithful servants will fully depend on Him. Yahuwah will use Pharaoh [The Son of Perdition] along with his slave masters [all non-believing nations] to pursue the children of Yisra’el yet again.
“The one who overcomes shall inherit all this, and I will be his Mighty One and he shall be My Son.” –Revelation 21:7
The remnant of Yisra’el will have to overcome all things. This includes society, peer pressure; fear, drugs, complaining, satan and the biggest obstacle each of us will have to overcome is our-SELF! Watch and digest the following beloved ones:
“This is My command, that you love one another, as I have loved you. No one has greater love than this: that one should lay down his life for his friends.” –John 12-13
Notice Yahushua Ha Mashiach is giving us a command that we love each other as He loved us and He gave up His life for us. Ponder on that beloved ones. This is not an option but a command. We know in the book of Revelation 22:14 that all those who do the commands shall be blessed to enter into the gates of the city [New Yerushalayim is the Bride house Yahushua prepared for her, Rev. 21:2]. Yahushua also tells us that if we love Him we will keep His commands (John 14:15). We know that the very first fruit of the Ruach Ha Qodesh is Love (Gal. 5:22). This is the love that the remnant will have. Each of our lives is time and we will be judged by what we do with that time. Let us each not forget that we are already dead. We should be using our time to bear much fruit (John 15:8, Matthew 3:8;10) worthy of repentance. Thus becoming a living sacrifice (Rev. 20:4) being fully tested! Once we comprehend this, we shall be the first fruits.
Try to understand that happiness is based on what happens. To achieve happiness an act has to happen first unlike the fruit of the Ruach called joy (Gal. 5:22). Joy is based on what will happen knowing that Yahuwah will bring you to the end. Joy is rejoicing in trials. We should be reJOYcing always in all things. That is what many faithful martyrs before us had, Joy. Nero, an anti-messiah of his time could not comprehend how in the face of a horrible, tortuous, cruel, death, the faithful servants would be singing songs, praising Yahuwah and even smiling. They had the fruit of joy down in their hearts. Even in the midst of chaos, death crouching at the door, they were joyful. They knew they would overcome through Yahushua. Despite the circumstances we are encountering we can be joyful also. The book of James addresses the twelve tribes that are dispersed throughout the world (James 1:1). He speaks words of wisdom as he explains the following to us:
“My brother, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the proving of your belief works endurance [patience], and let endurance [patience]have a perfect work, so that you be perfect and complete, lacking in naught.” –James 1:1-4
“Blessed is the man who does endure trial, for when he has been proved, he shall receive the crown of life which the Master has promised to those who love Him.” -James 1:12
Each of us must endure these trials, be proved and then receive the crown of life. Isn’t that amazing beloved ones? These curve balls of trials and tribulations are actually blessing us. Each trial and tribulation is a preparation drill for the “beginning of sorrows“.
How we handle these trials and tribulations now will also prepare each of us for the “great distress” [Jacob’s Trouble]. Your patience [endurance] will posses your life (Luke 21:19). We are told in Hebrews 10:36, that we must have patience [endurance] to receive the promise. This is a second witness to what Yahushua tells us in Matthew chapter ten verse twenty-two, “He that endured to the end shall be saved.”
Did you know that the testing of faith brings patience?
“So, brother, be patient [an ordeal is coming] until the coming of the Master [this ordeal will last up until the Messiah returns]. See, the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently for it until it receives the early and latter rain. You too, be patient [wait for the Messiah do not cave in] Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Master has drawn near. Do not grumble against each other, brothers, lest you be judged. See, the Judge is standing at the door! My brothers, as an example of suffering and patience, take the prophets, who spoke in the Name of Yahuwah. See we call those blessed who endure. You have heard of the endurance of Iyob (Job) and saw the purpose of Yahuwah, that He is very sympathetic and compassionate.”
In Tehillim/Psalms 40:1 David waited patiently for Yahuwah without complaining. Clearly, the tested quality of faith brings patience. The remnant will also have to wait upon Yahuwah without complaining or grumbling. We will have to wait in joy, having much patience, enduring all trials, living with shortages of food, forgiving all people including loves ones who will hate us. We, the few and humble must wait and forgive. Just as the old man was promised he would not die until after he saw the Messiah (Luke 25:30-34), we must endure even if the Messiah does not return until our last dying breathe! Let us not shrink back but endure “till the end”.
Great peace [shalom] will be given to all those that love Yahuwah‘s law (John 14:26-27). Peace (shalom) is a mindset more than a reality. Those that guard/keep Yahuwah‘s law will have a rest since the weekly Sabbath is like the millennium (Rev. 14:12-13); Compared to those who will have no rest (Rev. 14:11).
Many of us have already been having our faith tested and tried. Hold fast beloved ones and finish this race that has been put before each of us. Quite a few believers have literally given up everything. We have taken the steps of leaving homes, places of employments, family, friends and yes even homelands. For the first time, some are learning to love one another. Little communes are breaking forth across the world. These stepping stones are awesome! We, the remnant are obeying Yahuwah‘s voice as He has been directing each of us. The Bride is learning to trust and depend on Yahuwah. We are slowly learning not to lean on our understanding or even mans, but to sit back and wait upon the Mighty One of Yisra’el! Yahuwah‘s love will be manifested throughout the remnant! To the world we are crazy; at times, we might even think we are. All this though is preparing us for the days ahead. Reaching the momentum of the tares unweaved from the wheat.
