The Lion of YHWH...

General Omar Bradley 
stated at an Armistices Day Ceremony in 1948:  
.
"We have grasped the mystery of the atom 
and rejected the Sermon on the Mount.  
The world has achieved brilliance without wisdom, 
power without conscience.
Ours is a world of nuclear giants and ethical infants.
We know more about war than we know about peace, 
more about killing then we know about living."
The question is not "if" the Messiah will appear, 
but "when" will He appear?

            The Jews, Christians, Muslims, and many religion's look for the coming Redeemer who will conquer evil and usher in a kingdom of peace and justice. But the worlds' armies, gathered to fight each other in Jerusalem, will look at Messiah as a common enemy, and unite their armies against Him (Rev.19:19).  

           When the Heavenly Army descends to Earth, we can only speculate as to what they will be thinking at that moment.  They will probably say that He is an extraterrestrial who is coming to conquer the planet.  There have been many battles fought in history called Armageddon.  After approximately 6,000 years of spiritual warfare, this is the real one, the decisive battle between good and evil.  Although this day is really called the Day of the Lord in the Bible (Joel 1:15), it is commonly known as the Battle of Armageddon and it will make all the other battles seem pale in comparison.   

             Unless the Messiah comes to Earth and intervenes in the affairs of man, no human would be saved alive (Mat.24:22).   He comes to destroy the destroyers!  Unfortunately, the Antichrist and his member nations will be angry with His coming, and their military forces will attempt to destroy Him in Jerusalem (Rev.11:18, 19:19). [See Tribulation Prophecies.]    

"...one of the elders said to me, 
Do not weep. Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, 
the Root of David, has prevailed..." Rev 5:5

       Psalm 2:1-8 relates the decree from the Great White Heavenly Throne Room against the Kings of the Earth who plot against HIS anointed, the Messiah:  "Why do the nations rage, And the people plot a vain thing?  The kings of the earth set themselves, And the rulers take counsel together, Against the LORD and against His Anointed, saying, "Let us break Their bonds in pieces And cast away Their cords from us."  He who sits in the heavens shall laugh; The LORD shall hold them in derision. Then He shall speak to them in His wrath, And distress them in His deep displeasure: "Yet I have set My King On My holy hill of Zion. I will declare the decree: The LORD has said to Me, 'You are My Son, Today I have begotten You. Ask of Me, and I will give You The nations for Your inheritance, And the ends of the earth for Your possession."  

             The question is not if the Messiah will appear, but when will He appear?  In the religious world there are plenty of opinions, as always, the first place to look for answers is in the Bible.  The Messiah, sent by our FATHER, has two missions: The rejected-suffering Messiah, and the conquering-ruling Messiah (Isa.53:3-6, 9:6-7).  We know when the Messiah comes for His Bride it will be a surprise. No one but the FATHER knows the time (Mat.24:36; 1Ths.4:13-18). But when He returns as the conquering Messiah with His Bride and Heavenly army to stop the warring factions from destroying the planet, that is no surprise. 

             There are 318 prophecies in the New Testament of Yahshua's second coming. The Book of Jude described Yahshua's arrival in verse 14-15, "Now Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about these men also, saying, 'Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of His saints; to execute judgment on all, to convict all who are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have committed in an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him."  

"These will wage war against the Lamb, 
and the Lamb will overcome them, 
because He is Lord of lords and King of kings, 
and those who are with Him are the called and chosen and faithful."  
- Revelation 17:14

             Yahshua the Messiah, then King of Kings over the entire Earth, will return riding a Heavenly White Horse, with His Heavenly Army to supernaturally vanquish the evil forces (Rev.19:11-21).  The book of Zechariah 14:1-8, written in 520 B.C.E., describes the Messiah descending from the heavens.  He will descend to Earth and set foot on the Mount of Olives, opposite the Temple Mount.  Then a great earthquake will split the earth from the Dead Sea in the east  through the Mount of Olives to the Mediterranean Sea in the west.   

            It is interesting to note here, that a U.S. Geophysical survey team in 1967 analyzed the Mount of Olives.  They discovered a geological fault line running from the Dead Sea behind the Mount of Olives all the way to the Mediterranean Sea.  They stated a tremendous shock would cause an open fault line to appear, just as prophesied twenty-five hundred years ago in Zechariah 14:4.  The split in the Mount of Olives will open an escape route allowing the defenders of Jerusalem trapped by the approaching Antichrist army a way to escape to safety.  

In spite of all the Heavenly warnings, the earthly armies want war.  To confront the alien space invaders, they will join forces and march southward into the valley of Jehoshaphat (Joel 3:1-2).  Today itís called the Kindron Valley, it is a deep valley that borders Jerusalem on the East between the city and the Mount of Olives.  The true Hebrew meaning of the word Jehoshaphat, is the Judgment of the ETERNAL.  Those nations armies - gathered together for their great battle - have just entered into the valley of their Divine Judgment. 

            From the Mount of Olives He will destroy the worlds armies that have united against Him (Rev.17:14).  The battle will occur in stages over the course of several days involving hundreds of millions of soldiers (Zec.12:2-11).  Zechariah 14:12 gives a graphic account of the battle, "And this shall be the plague with which the LORD will strike all the people who fought against Jerusalem: Their flesh shall dissolve while they stand on their feet, Their eyes shall dissolve in their sockets, And their tongues shall dissolve in their mouths."  Does this description sound familiar?  Think back to what happened in the movie "Raiders of the Lost Ark" when the Germans finally raised the lid on the Ark of the Covenant.

            Now in the spiritual war there will be a thousand-year cease-fire.  After the battle, Satan will be bound by Michael the Archangel, Revelation 20:1-2 ďThen I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.  He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years.Ē  The Antichrist (the Satan possessed human leader), and the false prophet were cast into the lake of fire, Gehenna the final death, these souls are dead forever (Rev.19:20.)  

temple_ gldgate.jpg (94222 bytes)            Yahshua will cross the Kidron Valley and enter the Temple Mount through the Eastern Gate just as He did on Palm Sunday some two thousand years ago.  The prophet Ezekiel proclaimed that the promised Messiah would enter the Eastern Gate of the Temple Mount into the rebuilt Third Temple (Eze.43:1-5).  The Prophet had told Israel that this Eastern Gate (it was originally called the Golden Gate because it was covered in a golden colored bronze) would be sealed in the future, to preserve it for the entrance of the coming Messiah (Eze.44:1-2).  The Earthquake will open the sealed Eastern Gate that He will walk through and enter the Tribulation (third) Temple. (Picture shows current view of the Eastern Gate and Temple Mount, click to enlarge.)

            Twelve hundred years ago the Muslim scholars were aware of the ancient Jewish prophecy of the coming Hebrew Messiah - who would rule the world after entering the Temple Mount through the Eastern Gate - and in hopes of preventing the Messiah from fulfilling prophecy they sealed the gate. Ironically by sealing the gate they were fulfilling prophecy.  During the reign of Suleyman the Magnificent (1520-1566), they rebuilt the gatehouse and the walls of the Eastern gate as it is seen today.  In their religion walking through a graveyard would defile a priest or holy man.  To prevent this prophecy of restoring Israel from coming true, they built a large graveyard in front of the Eastern Gate, hoping this would prevent the Messiah from walking through the gate and fulfilling the prophecies.  To be doubly sure to prevent the Messiah from entering the gate, the Arabs placed the graves of several children on the ground only inches from the huge foundations stones of the gate.

            Twice this century an attempt to open the Eastern Gate had failed.  First, on December 9, 1917 the Grand Muffti, the Arab leader of Jerusalem, decided to open the gate.  He ordered the other gates to Jerusalem sealed to stop the approaching allied Army led by British General Allenby.  Since he needed one gate open, he ordered his workers to open the sealed Eastern Gate.  As they began their work, General Allenby had his biplanes fly over Jerusalem dropping leaflets asking the Arabs to "Flee Jerusalem."  The Muslims had a prophecy, stating, they would never loose the holy city, until they were asked to leave by a prophet of Allah.  When the Arabs saw General Allenby's name on the leaflet, they interpreted it as meaning Allah's prophet, then they fled the city without a shot being fired. 

            The second time was, on June 5, 1967 when King Hussain of Jordan was planning a construction project in the old city of Jerusalem next to the Temple mount.  This construction project would have closed the Magreb Gate, (the gate that the Arab pilgrims were using) so he ordered the Eastern Gate opened.  As the workers prepared to do their work, Israeli aircraft preemptively responded to the Arab war preparations, and as the Six Day War began, the workers dropped their tools and fled from their work on the Eastern Gate.  As prophesied, the gate still remains sealed to this day, clearly shows us that YAHWEH is in charge and HE works in mysterious ways.

            After entering the Tribulation Temple, Yahshua will be anointed with the sacred oil of the anointing.  Yahshua's human blood line comes from King David so he has some Hebrew birthright duties to fulfill, and it begins with the anointing.  This special mixture of anointing oil was first ordered to be made in Exodus 30:22-33, to be used for sanctification of religious articles and leaders.  This anointing oil was lost when the Temple was destroyed in 70 C.E., and has been lost for two almost thousand years, because the materials to remake this oil are no longer available.  Miraculously, during the Dead Sea Scrolls excavation of the Copper Scroll, a flask of this anointing oil has been found.  The oil, buried almost two thousand years ago, in one of the hottest spots on earth, is still fresh and usable today.  

           Carbon 14 dating by the Casali Institute of Applied Chemistry Laboratories determined that the oil comes from the first century era and that it has a unique chemical composition.  When one drop of oil was put into water, it turned the water milky white, exactly as the ancient texts suggested it should.  Another coincidence is the timing of the discovery in 1988, while Israel was having its fortieth anniversary.  In Jewish law a man reaching his maturity at his fortieth birthday may then hold a position in the religious and political authority. 

            After the anointing, Yahshua as our great High Priest will then announce the Gospel or Good news that the Kingdom/Government of YAHWEH has arrived.  He will proclaim the Great Planetary Jubilee (Lev.25:1-13). The time of restitution of all things, since the world began.  The cancellation of all debts. All the prisons will be opened and everyone will be free to start over (Act.3:18-21). There will be a literal one-year rest for the planet and all itís inhabitants.  He will then judge the nations of the world, before establishing His Millennium Kingdom.      

            In the Garden of Gethsemane where Yahshua was betrayed, representatives of all nations will be gathered before Him.  He will separate the righteous sheep nations (those who did good works to the Hebrew people, to the Christians, to the hungry, the poor, and those nations who are peacemakers), from the goat nations (the ones who cursed and oppressed His servants, and those who started violence).  The goat nations will not survive, they will go away into everlasting punishment (Mat.25:31-46; Gen.12:3). As the Bible says, "...the kingdom of heaven is like a dragnet that was cast into the sea and gathered some of every kind, which, when it was full, they drew to shore; and they sat down and gathered the good into vessels, but threw the bad away.  So it will be at the end of the age.  The angels will come forth, separate the wicked from among the just, and cast them into the furnace of fire.  There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth," Mat.13:47-50.

            The lesson of the Tribulation era is clear - Satan's way leads to death. About a third of humanity will survive the terrible ordeal brought on by mans own hand.  The Messiah will begin calling all the mortals on Earth to repent the utter hopelessness of the life they have chosen.  The mortal citizens entering the Millennium Kingdom will be those survivors of the Great Tribulation period and the Battle of Armageddon.  As they enter the next level of Humanities spiritual evolution they will receive the spiritual salvation needed to inherit all of the blessings of the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth.  The first part of the Messiah's Earthly rule now begins.  As stated in Revelation ch.20, six times it is written that the Messiah will rule and reign for a thousand years. 

Now it will be revealed to Humanity what is meant by the term Kingdom of YAHWEH, ruled by Yahshua the Messiah, as the nations of humanity will culturally reset to the time before 1Samuel ch.8.  As in the Book of Judges, it will be a government based the revolutionary Protestant concept, that GOD directly empowers the people - instead of a king; and what GOD directly gives - no man can take away. The dusty statue books that control us today will be gone in a world in which the people will finally accept their responsibility of GOD given freedom...
