Acts 13: 46 Then Paul and Barnabas waxed bold, and said, It was necessary that the word of God should first have been spoken to you: but seeing ye put it from you, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, lo, we turn to the Gentiles.
Why? Why was it Necessary for the word of God to first be spoken to those Jews? Surely you must know there is a reason and that must be taught in Scripture. Get this: Nothing, I mean nothing concerning the word of God is left up to man to figure out and teach their ideas. That is why the world today knows not the truth of God. They just listen to the lies men have made up in their own carnal minds.
But know that God expects us all to study the Word of God, [not some man’s commentaries, but actual Scripture] to find the truth.
Know also that what you say MUST be WRITTEN in Scripture. If your ‘interpretation’ is not written in Scripture it is false.
Going back to the prophecy in Daniel concerning the timing of things as they come to Christ, we find that there would be 70 prophetical weeks till God was finished dealing with Israel as a nation. Scripture clearly reveals that at this time God would bring in the Gentiles and make them both into one NEW MAN. No more would there be two different ‘nations’.
The lie that God will yet, after a rapture of a church, turn back to the nation of Israel and deal with them as such, totally denies that Jesus made us all to be ONE. They flat deny that Jews can be saved during this grace period. That lie denies the finished work of Jesus to make us into one new man and thus do away with the enmity. It denies salvation to all Jews during this church or grace period. That is a horrible lie against the salvation that Jesus wrought at Calvary, to bring us all into one Body and thus all can be saved.
Daniel 9: 24 Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.
[Notice the above….. Seventy weeks to finish the TRANSGRESSION. So what was that transgression? It was rejecting Jesus Christ and crucifying him. … to make an end of sins….When did this happen? Of course, when Jesus died for the sins of the whole world….
To make reconciliation for iniquity….. So when was this? Certainly could only be the sacrifice of Jesus for the sins of the world.
…. To bring in everlasting righteousness….so when was this? Only could be the resurrection of Jesus Christ…
and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.
All of the above could only be speaking of the finishing of the work of Jesus Christ to bring in salvation to the world…..all of the world….not just Jews and not just Gentiles.
So to split up this time of seventy weeks as all the churches do is sheer foolishness and destruction to the word of God.
Nowhere in all of God’s word is there even one mention of any 2,000 or more years coming in between the 69 weeks and the last week. This is made up lies. It was done to keep the world from seeing the truth of Romans 2: 28,29.
Here God clearly shows that the ‘Jew’ is not outward in the flesh, but is spiritual, in the inner man. This makes the true Israel or Jew of God to be all true Christians. It is not to any natural nation or fleshly people. Paul said over and over, THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE in Jews and anyone else. WE ARE ALL ONE……..we are all one.
This then is the horrible deception that this split time causes in the minds of people. This is how they brought up the LYING DOCTRINE OF SEVEN YEARS OF TRIBULATION TO THE JEWS.
It is also how they, with this lie, cause some of the precious work of Jesus to be credited to antiChrist.
This LIE is also the reason the church has never seen the truth of the working of the second witness, or the fulfillment of Psalm 149.
This lie blinds you to the fact that antiChrist is fully revealed and made known BEFORE Jesus comes the second time.
This lie of the last or seventh week coming AFTER THE CHURCH IS FINISHED, gave place to the HORRIBLE LIE OF A RAPTURE.
Get this: !!! Not one single Scripture names any ‘rapture’ or any seven year tribulation.
All the folks who claim this cannot give one single verse saying it. So it is LIES, …. DAMNING LIES. !!!
Due to these horrible lies you end up calling Jesus the antiChrist. I will prove this statement right here.
Dan 9:25 Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.
Closely read the above verse: from the time that the Persian King gave the command to return and rebuild Jerusalem would be seven weeks; then 62 more weeks till the Messiah came. That makes 69 ‘weeks’ from that command till Jesus would be 69 weeks.
Now here is where carnal minded false teachers made havoc of this prophecy and the working of God. They then inserted the entire ‘church’ time in-between that 69th week and that 70th week.
Again…. NOT ONE SINGLE VERSE OF SCRIPTURE BACKS UP THIS LIE.
Now to answer the question at the beginning of this message as to WHY it was necessary to first preach the gospel message to the Jews: ~~~. They had one more week promised to them. This had to be fulfilled.
Now the false teachers made up a lie that this last week to the Jews would be fulfilled by a TRIBULATION.
Such ungodly lies.
This lie further led to other lies: They now say the “church’ will be ‘raptured’ out to see no tribulation and the Jews will be sent seven years’ tribulation after the ‘church’ is secretly snatched out like a thief grabbing something that is not his!!!! NOTHING COULD BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH.
This one more week meant that God was still dealing with this nation of Israel. He had not turned to the Gentiles TILL THAT SEVENTH WEEK WAS FINISHED. That seventh week was finished the day that Paul said, ‘you count yourselves unworthy of eternal life; we turn to the Gentiles’. They had done their duty and preached to the Jews FIRST. But now the Jews have rejected this call to salvation through Jesus Christ and their last week was finished. OVER. Forever. Jesus ministered to them three and a half years then was crucified. Then the apostles ministered to them the other three and a half years, thus finishing their last week. It is over; in the past ; not something yet to be.
I will show you a great secret here:
Malachi 2: 4 And ye shall know that I have sent this commandment unto you, that my covenant might be with Levi, saith the Lord of hosts.
5 My covenant was with him of life and peace; and I gave them to him for the fear wherewith he feared me, and was afraid before my name.
6 The law of truth was in his mouth, and iniquity was not found in his lips: he walked with me in peace and equity, and did turn many away from iniquity.
This ‘LEVI’ is Jesus Christ. It can be no other. No other had truth in his mouth and iniquity not found in his lips. He alone walked with God in peace and equity and turned many away from iniquity. This is speaking of Jesus and calling him Levi.
This is the COVENANT that He confirmed to those Jews for one week! Glorious stuff!
Malachi 3: Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation.
Now here, at the end of the OT scriptures, we see that God has already cursed this WHOLE NATION. He is never going to bless it again. God does not curse, then re-bless. That nation was cut off and will forever be cut off. So that last week was finished, when God brought in the Gentiles, that was the end of the ‘nation’ of Israel as God’s people, forever. Their seventy weeks was OVER AND DONE WITH before any church was set up.
Dan 9: 26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto he end of the war desolations are determined.
In the above verse it jumps from the time of the cutting off of Messiah down to the time of destruction of that old city of law and that sanctuary. Then it jumps all the way down to the end with the ‘flood’ of words, coming out of the mouth of that old serpent to take away all knowledge of truth and the power that came on the Day of Pentecost. All the way to that end desolations are determined.
Why? Here is the answer:
Mat. 23: 37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!
38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.
Jesus pronounced that old house of Jerusalem, [law] to be DESOLATE. This is where their desolations came from…. The mouth of Jesus.
[Get this ~~~~ this is not saying that no Jews or Israelites can now be saved. That is simply not meant here, nor is it borne out in any Scripture. There has never been a Time that Israelites cannot be saved. BUT NOT AS A NATION. That was cursed and finished and will never be again!]
Paul and Peter both made it clear that now, after the ending of those 70 weeks to Israel as a nation, they can all be saved THE SAME WAY EVERYONE ELSE IS SAVED….BY GRACE…FAITH IN Jesus Christ. No more will they be saved as a nation.
This is how WE ARE ALL ONE. No more are the peoples of this world separated as Jews and Gentiles. We are now either all Christians or sinners.
So you see to say the church will be raptured out and God will turn back to the nation of Israel is total DAMNING DOCTRINE. This is to flat deny that Jesus took off the twain and made one new man, thus making peace.
Romans 10: 12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. [This means everyone on this earth; Jews, Gentiles and everyone.]
Now to cling to that split group of Jews and Gentiles is to flat call the above verses A LIE. So don’t you see that this is a DAMNING DOCTRINE?
To believe and repeat these lies is to call God a lie. So now, rather you want to acknowledge this truth or not, each time you believe or repeat the lie of a rapture and a seven year tribulation to Jews, you are calling God a lie.
God put everyone on this earth into the very same category in the above verses. Why do you split up what Jesus joined together?
Dan 9:27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
Now here in verse 27 he goes back to that last week and to the one who confirms that God is in fact giving the nation one more week before He cuts them off as a nation and turns to the entire world for salvation.
So who confirms this last week to them? It is Jesus, of course.
He said, ‘I am not sent but to the lost sheep of Israel’. Didn’t he say that? Or course he did. He and he alone gave them that last week.
Jesus himself ministered to the JEWS for the first half of that last week. Three and a half years he preached to them. Then in the MIDST of that last week, Jesus… caused the daily sacrifice of animals and their abominable oblations to cease.
If you do not think it was abominable to God, read Isaiah one. Read Isaiah 66. The proof is there that God hated everything about the OT way of doing things.
Here also is where the lying teaching attributes this work of Jesus to antiChrist. They say it is antiChrist that confirms this last week to the Jews. They say it is antiChrist that makes old Jerusalem to be desolate. Yet I proved in Mat 23 that it was Jesus.
They claim that antiChrist stops the animal sacrifices and oblations. Jesus himself said, until the end desolations are determined. Stop claiming that the antiChrist did these things.
When Jesus died on that cross, in the midst of this last week, the curtain in the Jewish tabernacle was rent into from the top to the bottom, proving that this was where and when God stopped that old way of law doings. No longer were they to go into that natural holy of holies with blood of animals to offer to God. God always hated this!
The abomination of desolations is the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. This is rejection of that old nation to their Messiah. This is the abomination that made them desolate forever. No more will God use that nation or their abominable way of animal sacrifices and oblations, etc.
In the Book of Lamentations God did away with the old way, their sabbaths, their priests, their kings, their prophets and their animal sacrifices. That is NO MORE FOREVER.
There will never be another natural, man-made temple for the Jews to come and offer their animal sacrifices. IT IS TOTAL ABOMINATION against Jesus Christ to teach such ungodly lies.
This twisting and lying of the true meaning of this last week to the Jews has caused many lying damning doctrines. The world today is all caught up in the idea of another temple to be built in natural Jerusalem. They even are looking for a red heifer to have something to do the return of Jesus. Such damning teaching!
It is all total carnal minded offense to God. When you believe and uphold such lies, you are just as guilty as the first one to make up this junk. You accept lies and refuse truth and refuse to seek for the truth and be corrected. God will hold you guilty for this evil.
Now for the last half of that seventh week: This is why it was NECESSARY for the gospel message to first be preached to those Jews. This was the final three and a half years promised to them! After this, salvation went to the ENTIRE WORLD. Praise God, now only those who are baptized into Jesus Christ, become part of his body, are now the people of God!
I looked up the word ‘tribulation’ is all the Word of God. Not one time is any amount of time given to tribulation. The apostles warned the Christians and also sinners that they would suffer tribulation. Jesus also warned of this tribulation coming on all.
Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.
[So are we to believe that those disciples had much tribulation and it is different from some ‘seven year tribulation’? I see not one evidence to such in all Scripture. (And you will never find it either for it is not in Scripture).
Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile;
OK this said to EVERY SOUL that does evil. That means all who ever lived.
And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;
Paul said we glory in tribulation. But according to the lying teaching Paul was not supposed to see tribulation. And most certainly not glory in it because it brought patience. Such ungodly deceiving teaching.
Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer;
Here again Paul confirms that tribulation works good for us.
2 Corinthians 1:4
Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.
Now according to the false church, they are not supposed to ever see tribulation. It is most certainly not taught in the King James Scripture. And that is the only one that can be proven to be correct. All other versions are altered and changed. God said do not add to my Word or take away from it.
This ‘seven year tribulation’ is adding stuff that God did not say. It is LIES.
1 Thessalonians 3:4
For verily, when we were with you, we told you before that we should suffer tribulation; even as it came to pass, and ye know.
Paul telling Christians that they should suffer tribulation and it came to pass.
But this carnal lying churches today tells their folks that Jesus is going to snatch them up into the sky so they will not have to suffer any tribulation. This lying teaching certainly is NOT WRITTEN IN GOD’S WORD.
I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.
This is speaking to a church. They had tribulation. Yet this carnal lying church of today says they will be different from all others before them and never suffer any tribulation. It is A DAMING LYING TEACHING.
I have solidly proven this message with SCRIPTURE.
Now you who proclaim this lie of a seven year tribulation AFTER a rapture, PROVE ONE WORD OF IT.
You cannot for it is lies of the devil.
