Signs for Now!
In a world full of signs, it seems that most people have no real clue what the real signs are! The majority of people are directed to signs that tell them what to think and how they should act. They have no clue that there are signs that are spiritual and are directly from the living God above. If any of you are familiar with the true word of God, then you should know that the red heifer is a significant sign for the temple that was built in the Old Testament days.
1 Then the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying,
2 “This is the statute of the law which the Lord has commanded, saying, ‘Speak to the sons of Israel that they bring you an unblemished red heifer in which is no defect and on which a yoke has never been placed.
3 ‘You shall give it to Eleazar the priest, and it shall be brought outside the camp and be slaughtered in his presence.
4 ‘Next Eleazar the priest shall take some of its blood with his finger and sprinkle some of its blood toward the front of the tent of meeting seven times.
5 ‘Then the heifer shall be burned in his sight; its hide and its flesh and its blood, with its refuse, shall be burned.
6 ‘The priest shall take cedar wood and hyssop and scarlet material and cast it into the midst of the burning heifer.
7 ‘The priest shall then wash his clothes and bathe his body in water, and afterward come into the camp, but the priest shall be unclean until evening.
8 ‘The one who burns it shall also wash his clothes in water and bathe his body in water, and shall be unclean until evening.
9 ‘Now a man who is clean shall gather up the ashes of the heifer and deposit them outside the camp in a clean place, and the congregation of the sons of Israel shall keep it as water to remove impurity; it is purification from sin.
There have been many people working on the plans for the last temple in Israel for over ten years now. These people have no clue that they are only spinning wheels with everything they do but at the same time they are walking right into the plans of Yahweh! They claim to be serving Yahweh and the word that the living God spoke. They think that the Messiah or Christ has not yet come, and they do not realize that Jesus of Nazareth was the true messiah! They make plans that do not fit the eternal plans of Yahweh for salvation but rather fit the plans that will just prove further that Jesus is the true Messiah.
1 The first account I composed, Theophilus, about all that Jesus began to do and teach,
2 until the day when He was taken up to heaven, after He had by the Holy Spirit given orders to the apostles whom He had chosen.
3 To these He also presented Himself alive after His suffering, by many convincing proofs, appearing to them over a period of forty days and speaking of the things concerning the kingdom of God.
4 Gathering them together, He commanded them not to leave Jerusalem, but to wait for what the Father had promised, “Which,” He said, “you heard of from Me;
5 for John baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.”
6 So when they had come together, they were asking Him, saying, “Lord, is it at this time You are restoring the kingdom to Israel?”
7 He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or epochs which the Father has fixed by His own authority;
8 but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth.”
9 And after He had said these things, He was lifted up while they were looking on, and a cloud received Him out of their sight.
10 And as they were gazing intently into the sky while He was going, behold, two men in white clothing stood beside them.
11 They also said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking into the sky? This Jesus, who has been taken up from you into heaven, will come in just the same way as you have watched Him go into heaven.”
Jesus was given all authority from Yahweh and is now the Lord (one with authority) over all creation! This also means that the prophecy that was spoken in Zechariah 14 will be fulfilled when Jesus returns to end evil for good!
1 Behold, a day is coming for the Lord when the spoil taken from you will be divided among you.
2 For I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem to battle, and the city will be captured, the houses plundered, the women ravished and half of the city exiled, but the rest of the people will not be cut off from the city.
3 Then the Lord will go forth and fight against those nations, as when He fights on a day of battle.
4 In that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, which is in front of Jerusalem on the east; and the Mount of Olives will be split in its middle from east to west by a very large valley, so that half of the mountain will move toward the north and the other half toward the south.
5 You will flee by the valley of My mountains, for the valley of the mountains will reach to Azel; yes, you will flee just as you fled before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah. Then the Lord, my God, will come, and all the holy ones with Him!
The truth is that the things in which these people seek today concerning the red heifer is null and void in the eyes of the same God they claim to serve. Jesus tore the veil and shattered all the things that the old covenant of Yahweh had with the people of Israel. Jesus set forth the beginning of the new creation with the perfect sacrifice that he gave on that cross! The same evil that convinced the people of Israel to be ignorant back then, is still causing them to be ignorant now. I have mentioned many times that people will become ignorant by choosing to ignore something or someone. If you do not seek things with an open heart and allow the facts to be weighed, then you will not have the chance to be given the whole of information. Without the whole of information then you cannot let the truth be weighed. So, if you choose to ignore something or someone, then you become ignorant to this and therefor create an ignorance to that situation.
Jesus set forth the temple that can never be torn down because it is the spiritual temple that is set up inside each person who believes in the finished work of Jesus the Christ!
13 The Passover of the Jews was near, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
14 And He found in the temple those who were selling oxen and sheep and doves, and the money changers seated at their tables.
15 And He made a scourge of cords, and drove them all out of the temple, with the sheep and the oxen; and He poured out the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables;
16 and to those who were selling the doves He said, “Take these things away; stop making My Father’s house a place of business.”
17 His disciples remembered that it was written, “Zeal for Your house will consume me.”
18 The Jews then said to Him, “What sign do You show us as your authority for doing these things?”
19 Jesus answered them, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.”
20 The Jews then said, “It took forty-six years to build this temple, and will You raise it up in three days?”
21 But He was speaking of the temple of His body.
22 So when He was raised from the dead, His disciples remembered that He said this; and they believed the Scripture and the word which Jesus had spoken.
23 Now when He was in Jerusalem at the Passover, during the feast, many believed in His name, observing His signs which He was doing.
24 But Jesus, on His part, was not entrusting Himself to them, for He knew all men,
25 and because He did not need anyone to testify concerning man, for He Himself knew what was in man.
Everything that Jesus did was to set forth the work of his Father, which is Yahweh the living God, and to set the captives free! Each person ever born into this world was held captive by the broken sinful nature we received because of the fall of mankind. Still to this day we see the way that evil is evident in people but now it is explained away with foolish deception.
If one person takes the time to open their mind and heart to the truth of what Jesus spoke, then they can never truly be the same. It takes root inside of them and then the spirit of the living God does the rest. Look at the words Jesus spoke to John!
9 ‘Behold, I will cause those of the synagogue of Satan, who say that they are Jews and are not, but lie—I will make them come and bow down at your feet, and make them know that I have loved you.
10 ‘Because you have kept the word of My perseverance, I also will keep you from the hour of testing, that hour which is about to come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth.
11 ‘I am coming quickly; hold fast what you have, so that no one will take your crown.
12 ‘He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he will not go out from it anymore; and I will write on him the name of My God, and the name of the city of My God, the new Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God, and My new name.
13 ‘He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.’
Jesus was very clear in everything he taught and spoke! If there is confusion, then this is because of the spirit that a person has inside of them. The true spirit of the living God does not cause confusion. It is always clear, and it always brings peace. Jesus established the true temple inside of each believer with access to the Father directly through Christ! This is in each person through the spirit, not our flesh. Therefore, we still must die once and be made new again one day in a body that will not be corrupted. When we overcome like Jesus gave us the chance too, then we can have the access that Jesus speaks about above. Many people are fooled into believing that the above text in Revelation is just for one certain time frame. This is relevant now and was relevant to everyone in between the time of Jesus's ascension till now! This is why Paul told us these words!
13 But now in Christ Jesus you who formerly were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ.
14 For He Himself is our peace, who made both groups into one and broke down the barrier of the dividing wall,
15 by abolishing in His flesh the enmity, which is the Law of commandments contained in ordinances, so that in Himself He might make the two into one new man, thus establishing peace,
16 and might reconcile them both in one body to God through the cross, by it having put to death the enmity.
17 And He came and preached peace to you who were far away, and peace to those who were near;
18 for through Him we both have our access in one Spirit to the Father.
19 So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints, and are of God’s household,
20 having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus Himself being the corner stone,
21 in whom the whole building, being fitted together, is growing into a holy temple in the Lord,
22 in whom you also are being built together into a dwelling of God in the Spirit.
Jerusalem really means “peace” so how about them apples! So, does this start to make real sense yet? Jesus put to death the hostile nature we had between God and man! Death means separation and because of Christ we are no longer separated or considered in enmity (hostile nature) towards Yahweh because of Jesus! We can and will be made new in us if we believe in this truth. It allows us to be the true temple of God inside of each believer. This has always been relevant to anyone that ever believed in the name of Jesus the Christ!
The enemy knows that this is the truth, and therefore the enemy has set out to deceive the world on a mass scale in the past hundred plus years. The world around us now has so many things that are fighting for the inner spirit of mankind. The enemy knows that if we allow the things that are not of Yahweh (God) into our hearts then he can push the idea of God’s truth out of us all together. The earlier this process starts in a person’s life, the more likely they are to be led astray the rest of their lives. This is very applicable to what Paul warned us about! Look!
2 Thessalonians 2:1-4
1 Now we request you, brethren, with regard to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him,
2 that you not be quickly shaken from your composure or be disturbed either by a spirit or a message or a letter as if from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come.
3 Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction,
4 who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God.
Now that you know where the true temple of Yahweh is and what Jesus established, you should beware that what you allow to be truth in your heart is crucial to the true temple of God! You need to know that the temple is in you, or it isn’t in you at all. There is not a in between on this situation and the things that we allow to be rooted into our minds and hearts will either set us before God or against God! Look at all the things that surround the American idea of a good life and then ask yourself who is really the god in your life? Who is inside your temple displaying themselves as a god? Are you truly being led by the truth of Yahweh’s spirit in you through His Christ or are you represented by a counterfeit lie that will hold you back when the bride is called home? May Yahweh Bless you and His Christ guide your hearts in the chaos ahead!
