The Early Church were prohibited from celebrating Christmas in April when Jesus was born. They were, however, determined to make the world aware of His Coming into the world so they made use of a public holiday dedicated to the Roman gods to do it. The upshot was that their family, friends and especially their children were aware of what Christmas is really about. …Continue Reading
I received this report via email recently and find it so exciting. The Return of Jesus Christ is closer than we realise!
A new generation of Arab and Jewish followers of Jesus met together last week to strategize on how to “turn Israel upside down.”
Two hundred and sixty Messianic Jewish and Arab pastors, youth leaders, evangelists, Bible-school teachers and ministry leaders gathered for a three-day council to discuss, study, pray and work together to effectively bring the word of God in power to Arabs and Jews throughout the whole Land of Israel.
These seasoned men and women of faith embody decades of labor proclaiming the Gospel to local Arabs and Jews. Most have given up everything to preach Messiah to their unbelieving Muslim and Jewish families and friends. Despised because of their faith, they have lost jobs, suffered rejection and endured multiple other hardships, yet their passion to bring the Good News to their people remains unquenched.
“We will keep preaching and teaching the Word of God until it changes the people of Israel,” declared one leading pastor. “We must be willing to suffer for the sake of the gospel and keep going no matter what happens. God will accomplish His will through the power of His word.”
With tensions now raging in Jerusalem and across Israel, it was astonishing to witness firsthand the deep friendships between these Arabs and Jews. Even the cold-blooded murders in a Jerusalem synagogue that took place on the final day of the gathering could not separate these godly men and women from their warm fellowship in Messiah.
In fact, the cowardly acts of terror and violence still raging in Jerusalem only served to move them to stand even stronger together and compelled them to more boldly declare the life-giving Word of God to both Muslim and Jew.
A regular theme throughout the gathering was the need to understand God’s prophetic word concerning the Last Days. Scriptures related to the Second Coming of Messiah were studied. There are many signs that we are living in the latter days, particularly the return of the Jewish people to their biblical land, and the leadership of the local congregations in Israel discussed the need to prepare God’s people for the Messiah’s soon return.
All agreed that time is short, and the peoples of this land, both Arab and Jew, must hear the Word of God now. It was mentioned that some local leaders are not teaching or preaching about the Second Coming. They do not want to stir up controversy or division over what can be a difficult subject.
While there remains much debate in Christianity and among Messianic Jews as to what exactly will happen around the Second Coming of the Lord, all were in agreement that He is coming, and that the Gospel much be preached in boldness, especially in Israel, before it is too late, for He comes this time in glory and in judgment.
According to many New Testament scriptures, the return of Messiah should unify believers, inspiring them to ready themselves in purity and holiness. It is seen as a cunning ploy of the enemy to cause so much confusion and division concerning the Last Days and Messiah’s return.
The leadership of the local Arab and Jewish congregations in Israel prayed for unity of faith in the Messiah’s return and boldness to tell others of His coming Messianic kingdom, the only real solution to the Arab-Israeli conflict and the peace of Jerusalem.
The world watched the Oscar Pistorious trial with great interest and rapt attention, but few give thought to the reality that awaits everyone who does not trust in Christ, Our Great Advocate who paid the penalty for our sin.
The Great White Throne – by David Jeremiah
And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened.” — Revelation 20:12
Recommended Reading: Revelation 20:11-15
Anyone who has sat in a courtroom awaiting a verdict knows the stress of the moment. Innocent or guilty? Life or death? Tension fills the courtroom like electrical voltage as the jury renders its decision and the judge pronounces the sentence.
What, then, will it be like at the Great White Throne? God will have a complete record of every moment of everyone’s life, everything done publicly and privately. This will be the ultimate test for those who believe their good works will get them into heaven. No one has lived a perfect or sinless life; no one’s works will be sufficient. Whether we view our lives as good or bad, without Christ there is only condemnation.
That’s why Christ came to save us. His blood shields us, for “there is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus” (Romans 8:1). Becoming a Christian means we no longer gain salvation by our works but by grace. The only way to pass from death to life — to bypass the Great White Throne Judgment — is through faith in Christ.
How much better to know Him as Savior than to meet Him as Judge!
