Luke 21:22 ** “For these are the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.

These are the prophetic words of Y’shua, Christ Jesus as HE spoke daily at the great temple in Jerusalem. In the short term, HE prophesied of the soon coming destruction in 70 AD, but the meaning also represents the soon coming destruction preceding HIS second coming.  The prophets of the Tanach (Old Testament) frequently wrote scripture with a mirrored double meaning of short term and long term fulfillment.  This is often confusing to the average bible reader. However, with constant communication with our Heavenly Father in prayer we have the opportunity to understand all scripture.

The preceding soon second coming will be much more painful than the fall and burning of Jerusalem and the second great temple in 70 AD. The Judgment that follows in this age is beyond compare. Yet, the Messiah reassures the faithful believers that God (Yahweh) is advancing HIS plan. Verse 36 says, “Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man (Messiah).”    Those faithful believers that watch and pray realize this soon coming prophesy is accelerating beyond a shadow of a doubt.

Ezekiel 25:14 ** “I will lay MY vengeance on Edom by the hand of MY people Israel, that they may do in Edom according to MY anger and according to MY fury; and they shall know MY vengeance.” Says the (Sovereign) Lord God.

The Prophet Obadiah in verse 13 &14, accused the Edomites (Esau) of the east that not only gloated over the destruction and fall of Jerusalem to the Babylonians but seized their wealth, cut down survivors and handed over survivors in their day of trouble. Verse 10 advises, “For violence against your brother Jacob, shame shall cover you, and you shall be cut off (destroyed) forever.”  ** Daniel 2:44 prophesizes the soon coming Kingdom of our Sovereign Lord God will stand forever. ** Philippians 2:10,11 advises, ‘That in honor of the name given Yeshua (Jesus), every knee will bow in heaven, on earth and under the earth and every tongue will acknowledge that Yeshua the Messiah is Adonai (Lord)… to the glory of God the Father.’ (JNTP).    ** The Jerusalem headquarters of the Kingdom of Father God was called the city of Peace (Salem) in Genesis 14:18, Psalm 76:2, Hebrews 7:1. It is repeatedly referred to as the ‘city of David’ and in Revelation 3:12, it is referred to as ‘the city of my God, the new Jerusalem.’ ** The suicidal kamikaze type attacks against the city of my God and the descendents of Jacob are only a precursor of what is coming as the descendants of Esau mass nukes. Their missiles can now even reach Europe. A possible preemptive strike by Israel with her nukes as Esau triggers will immediately begin the countdown. The countdown of the rogue kamikaze type nations massing against Israel will mass to their destruction and shame will cover them for destruction forever. (Obadiah 10, Isaiah 65:9, Matthew 24:22).

Zechariah 14:2-4 ** ‘For I will gather all the nations to battle against Jerusalem; the city shall be taken, the houses rifled, and the women ravished. Half of the city shall go into captivity, but the remnant of the people shall not be cut off from the city. Then the Lord will go forth and fight against those nations, as HE fights in the day of battle. And in that day HIS feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, which faces Jerusalem on the East……..’      

Hebrews 11:1 ** Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. ** Both the book of Daniel and Revelation end by professing the Church of God Messianic with end time hope and a wonderful never ending future. Hope cannot be considered wishful thinking for the Messianic people of God.  We must continue in faith that the Messiah will deliver us that keep the commandments of Love for the Lord your God and brethren as yourself.  We must continue in faith with hope of full pardon when we ask forgiveness, help and guidance to do the will of Father God. 

Luke 21:17-19 ** “All men will hate you because of ME (Y’shua, Jesus Lamb of God). But not a hair on your head will perish.  By your patience possess your souls.” ** When the Messiah places HIS feet on Mount Olives; those servants without hate and have complete faith in keeping the commandments of Father God; will be with HIM forever! (1 Thessalonians 4:17). ** When the powers of heaven shake the earth and men’s hearts fail with anxiety and bewilderment; hold your heads high, because your redemption draws near!
