Israel Delivered

Standard

THE DELIVERANCE OF ISRAEL

This lesson deals with the restoring of Israel just after the Great Tribulation period. Last lesson we talked about some things during the tribulation period. Just as sure as you believe in your salvation you need to believe the entire word of God. The signs we see as Christians are signs of the “Second Coming” of Christ.

“THE CHURCH WILL ALREADY BE WITH THE LORD WHEN HE COMES THE SECOND TIME TO THIS EARTH!

OUR TEXT FOR TODAY:

Zechariah 9:9-11; 10:1-12

Today we meet “Zechariah” another of the “Prophets” of God. This one of the Books called the “Minor” prophets. We will also see these books are only smaller books and not “Minor” in their importance. We know the rules for God’s prophets. Every prophecy had to be fulfilled. Every word from God’s Bible will come true. A lot of it already has, some is still fulfilled daily and we know of the exciting times ahead for the child of God and after the “Tribulation Period” there will also be exciting times for the children of Israel.

Amo 3:7 says  Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.

SURELY GOD WILL DO NOTHING UNLESS HE REVEALS IT TO US!

Mat 5:17 SAYS  Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: [I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil].

JESUS CHRIST TELLS US WHEN HE COMES AGAIN HE WILL FULFILL ALL REMAINING PROPHECY!

Mat 11:13 SAYS  For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John.

(The Prophecy of His first coming up until John the Baptist)

1Pe 1:10 says  Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you:

THE APOSTLE PETER SAID THESE PROPHETS EVEN PROPHESIED ABOUT GRACE EVEN THOUGH THEY COULD NOT UNDERSTAND IT’S MEANING.

The Angels also do not understand the “Grace of God”.

1Pe 1:12  Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, [but unto us they did minister the things], which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; [which things the angels desire to look into].

The Angels will never know the abiding peace of Jesus Christ and the “presence” of the Holy Ghost within them.

Only a sinner can be redeemed!

1Pe 1:18  Forasmuch as ye know [that ye were not redeemed] with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers;
1Pe 1:19  [But with the precious blood of Christ], as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:
1Pe 1:20  Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you,
1Pe 1:21  [Who by him do believe in God], that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God.

*****THAT’S WHY IT IS CALLED FAITH AND IT IS STILL THROUGH THE BLOOD!

Rev 10:7 SAYS  But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, [(the mystery of God should be finished), as he hath declared to his servants the prophets].

GOD SAYS IN THE DAYS OF THE VOICE OF THE SEVENTH ANGEL THERE WILL BE NO MORE MYSTERIES, ALL WILL BE KNOWN AND ALL THAT HE HAD ALREADY TOLD TO HIS PROPHETS WHO WROTE IT ALL DOWN FOR US TO KNOW!

*****Zechariah is another of God’s prophets that came from the Priestly line, which makes him a descendant of Aaron. It is interesting to note that during the time of Zechariah, [that Confucius was also writing in in China]. THE WORLD SEEMS TO HONOR THE WORDS OF CONFUCIUS BUT MOST OF THE WORLD BELIEVES ZECHARIAH’S WORDS ARE FALSE. We know that Confucius made no prophesies of the future at all. All he wrote was poems and so called words of wisdom.

The time of Zechariah was about 521-486 BC. Haggai another of God’s prophets was also busy at this time.

Zechariah tells us of the Millennial Kingdom:

Zec 8:2 says  Thus saith the LORD of hosts; I was jealous for Zion with great jealousy, and I was jealous for her with great fury.
Zec 8:3  Thus saith the LORD; [I am returned unto Zion, and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and Jerusalem shall be called a city of truth; and the mountain of the LORD of hosts the holy mountain].
Zec 8:4  Thus saith the LORD of hosts; There shall yet old men and old women dwell in the streets of Jerusalem, and every man with his staff in his hand for very age.
Zec 8:5  And the streets of the city shall be full of boys and girls playing in the streets thereof.
Zec 8:6  Thus saith the LORD of hosts; [If it be marvellous in the eyes of the remnant of this people in these days, should it also be marvellous in mine eyes? saith the LORD of hosts].

Again Zechariah repeats to us some of the words of Isaiah and Jeremiah, and Ezekiel:

Zec 14:5  And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: [and the LORD my God shall come, and all the saints with thee].

(Another proof of the Rapture before the tribulation period. You cannot “come” with the Lord from Heaven unless you are “WITH THE LORD” in Heaven!

Zec 14:6 says  And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light shall not be clear, nor dark:
Zec 14:7  [But it shall be one day which shall be known to the LORD], not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light.
Zec 14:8  And it shall be in that day, [that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem]; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be.
Zec 14:9  [And the LORD shall be king over all the earth]: [in that day shall there be one LORD], and his name one.
Zec 14:10  [All the land shall be turned as a plain from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem]: and it shall be lifted up, and inhabited in her place, from Benjamin’s gate unto the place of the first gate, unto the corner gate, and from the tower of Hananeel unto the king’s winepresses.
Zec 14:11  And men shall dwell in it, and [there shall be no more utter destruction]; but Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited.

*****NOW IF YOU ARE A SAINT THEN YOU HAVE TO BE IN HEAVEN TO COME BACK WITH THE LORD AT THIS TIME SO WE CAN KNOW THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH WILL HAPPEN BEFORE THE TRIBULATION PERIOD. YOU KNOW, ACCORDING TO THE ROMAN CATHOLICS IT TAKES SOME POPE AND SOME OTHER GROUP OF PEOPLE TO DECIDE WHEN ONE BECOMES A SAINT. I’M GLAD THE THE BIBLE TRULY TEACHES THAT ONCE I ACCEPT THE LORD JESUS AS MY SAVIOUR AND INVITE HIM INTO MY HEART, I IMMEDIATELY BECOME A SAINT OF GOD.

DIDN’T NEED NO POPE TO OK IT!

*****The Apostle Paul traveled around and met and left “Saints” every where he traveled:

Php 4:21  Salute every [saint in Christ Jesus]. The brethren which are with me greet you.
Php 4:22  [All the saints salute you], chiefly they that are of Caesar’s household.
Php 4:23  The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen

Sainthood comes only by the “GRACE” of God AND ONLY THROUGH THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST!

ZECHARIAH REFERED TO THE COMING MESSIAH WITH MANY WORDS AND TITLES:

1.) MY SERVANT:

Zec 3:8  Hear now, O Joshua the high priest, thou, and thy fellows that sit before thee: for they are men wondered at: for, behold, I will bring forth [my servant] the BRANCH

2.) THE BRANCH:

Zec 3:8  Hear now, O Joshua the high priest, thou, and thy fellows that sit before thee: for they are men wondered at: for, behold, I will bring forth my servant [the BRANCH].

Zec 6:12  And speak unto him, saying, Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying, Behold the man whose name is [The BRANCH]; and he shall grow up out of his place, and he shall build the temple of the LORD:

3.) THE KING AND THE LOWLY KING:

Zec 9:9  Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, [thy King] cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass.

4.) THE KING-PRIEST:

Zec 6:13  Even he shall build the temple of the LORD; and he shall bear the glory, and [shall sit and rule upon his throne; and he shall be a priest upon his throne]: and the counsel of peace shall be between them both.

5.) THE BETRAYED ONE:

Zec 11:12  And I said unto them, If ye think good, give me my price; and if not, forbear. [So they weighed for my price thirty pieces of silver].
Zec 11:13  And the LORD said unto me, Cast it unto the potter: a goodly price that I was prised at of them. [And I took the thirty pieces of silver], and cast them to the potter in the house of the LORD.

6.) THE PIERCED ONE:

Zec 12:10  And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and [they shall look upon me whom they have pierced], and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.

7.) THE FOUNTAIN:

Zec 13:1  In that day there shall be [a fountain] opened to the house of David and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem for sin and for uncleanness.

8.) THE GOD-MAN:

Zec 6:12  And speak unto him, saying, Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying, [Behold the man whose name is The BRANCH]; and he shall grow up out of his place, and [he shall build the temple of the LORD]:

Zec 13:7  Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, [and against the man that is my fellow], saith the LORD of hosts: smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered: and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones.

9.) THE SMITTEN ONE:

Zec 13:7  Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man that is my fellow, saith the LORD of hosts: [smite the shepherd], and the sheep shall be scattered: and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones.

THE EXPRESSION THE LORD OF HOST IS USED 52 TIMES IN ZECHARIAH: (The Lord of the Armies of Heaven, The Lord of Hosts, The Lord of the Saints)

This is first found in Samuel(Note: this not the first verse we see this term but this verse says “His Name”).

2Sa 6:2 says  And David arose, and went with all the people that were with him from Baale of Judah, to bring up from thence the ark of God, [(whose name) is called by the name of the LORD of hosts] that dwelleth between the cherubims.

THE CITY OF JERUSALEM IS MENTIONED 41 TIMES IN THE BOOK OF ZECHARIAH.(The city of peace.)

*****WE CAN SEE HOW MUCH OF THE WORD OF GOD TO ZECHARIAH HAS ALREADY BEEN FULFILLED SO WE SHOULD PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT ELSE HE HAD TO SAY.

ZECHARIAH WROTE THESE THINGS ABOUT 500 YEARS BEFORE THE FIRST COMING OF OUR LORD.

OUR TEXT FOR TODAY:

Zec 9:9  Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, [thy King cometh unto thee]: [he is just], [and having salvation]; [lowly], and [riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass].
Zec 9:10  And I will cut off the chariot from Ephraim, and the horse from Jerusalem, and the battle bow shall be cut off: and he shall speak peace unto the heathen: and his dominion shall be from sea even to sea, and from the river even to the ends of the earth.
Zec 9:11  As for thee also, by the blood of thy covenant I have sent forth thy prisoners out of the pit wherein is no water.

Verse 9.)

We know that that there were many people that believed that this was the Coming of the Messiah to rule this Earth but that time was not yet. They were saying some of the right things because Our Lord did come to save.

Psa 118:25 says  {Save now}, I beseech thee, O LORD: O LORD, I beseech thee, send now prosperity.

Thy King:

Jesus Christ is the King of the Jews but first He is King of Glory!

Psa 24:1 says The earth is the LORD’S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.
Psa 24:2  For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.
Psa 24:3  Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place?
*****Psa 24:4  He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.
*****Psa 24:5  He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.

HE CAME TO SAVE THE ENTIRE WORLD FIRST!

Zep 2:1  [Gather yourselves together, yea, gather together, (O nation not desired)];
Zep 2:2  [Before the decree bring forth, before the day pass as the chaff, before the fierce anger of the LORD come upon you, (before the day of the LORD’S anger come upon you)].
Zep 2:3  [Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: (it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the LORD’S anger)].

This is another passage that talks about the Christian missing the day of the Lord’s anger. WE KNOW WHAT THE RULERS OF ISRAEL DID, AND WHAT THE WORLD DOES NOW.

Psa 2:2  The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed,

(HE IS JUST)

Rom 3:26  To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.

(HE BRINGS SALVATION)

Rom 3:25 SAYS  Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation [through faith in his blood], to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;

(HE IS LOWLY)

Mat 11:28 SAYS  Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Mat 11:29  Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; [for I am meek and lowly in heart]: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
Mat 11:30  For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

(RIDING ON THE FOAL OF AN ASS)

This scripture was fulfilled and documented in all of the Gospels:

Matt 21:5-7
Mark 11:7
Luke 19: 30-35
John 12:14-16

*****GOD DOES NOT ALWAYS REPEAT HIMSELF SO THIS IS AN IMPORTANT DAY IN THE BIBLE!

Dan 9:26 SAYS  And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, [but not for himself]:

NO, HE WAS NOT CUT OFF FOR HIMSELF, HE DIED FOR ME AND FOR YOU!

“HE SAID COME ON SATAN TAKE YOUR BEST SHOT”!

Joh 14:30 SAYS  Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.

Joh 12:31 SAYS  Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.
Joh 12:32 [ And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me].

THIS WAS A FULFILLMENT OF A PROPHECY OF DANIEL AND OTHER PROPHETS.

Verse 10.)

THE COUNTDOWN TO GRACE HAD JUST BEGUN! THE NEXT VERSE (9:10) IS THE BEGINNING OF THE FULFILLMENT OF THE MILLENNIAL KINGDOM.

IT HAS BEEN ALMOST 2000 YEARS. IF WE BELIEVE THE DATE OF 32AD AND WE KNOW IT IS ONLY 2010 WE KNOW HOW MUCH TIME IS PAST. NOW SAYING THAT, THERE ARE THOSE THAT BELIEVE THIS NEXT VERSE CAN BE TAKEN LITERALY:

2Pe 3:8 SAYS  But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, [that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day].
2Pe 3:9  The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
2Pe 3:10  But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

I PERSONALLY DO NOT BELIEVE ONE DAY TO THE LORD IS AN ABSOLUTE ONE THOUSAND YEARS BUT I DO BELIEVE [WE ARE STILL IN THAT TIME FRAME BETWEEN THE CROSS AND THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH THAT WE CALL “GRACE”].

HE’S COMING AND I BELIEVE IT WILL BE SOON BUT TO IMAGINE THAT WE KNOW AN EXACT DATE WOULD MAKE US FOOLISH.

TODAY IS THE DAY OF SALVATION AND CHRIST COULD COME AT ANY TIME!

Zec 14:7  [But it shall be one day which shall be known to the LORD]

JESUS CAME IN PEACE THIS DAY IN JERUSALEM. THE NEXT TIME HE COMES “HE WILL CAUSE PEACE TO HAPPEN” IN THIS WORLD WITH A ROD OF IRON.

*****Verse 10, 11.)

JESUS CHRIST WILL TAKE IT OWN HIS OWN TO RECYCLE THE WEAPONS OF WAR INTO FARMING MACHINERY AND THEN HE WILL “SPEAK” PEACE TO ALL THOSE THAT REMAIN ON EARTH AT THAT TIME.

Isa 2:4 SAYS  And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.

THERE BE IMMEDIATE ACCEPTANCE OF THE WORD OF GOD:

Eze 12:28 SAYS  Therefore say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; [There shall none of my words be prolonged any more, but the word which I have spoken shall be done], saith the Lord GOD.

THAT CHILD OF BETHLEHEM, IS NOW A KING:

Isa 9:6  For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called [Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace].

OF A UNITED KINGDOM:

Jer 30:3  For, lo, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will bring again the captivity of my people Israel and Judah, saith the LORD: and I will cause them to return to the land that I gave to their fathers, [and they shall possess it].

OF A UNIVERSAL KINGDOM:

Zec 9:10  And I will cut off the chariot from Ephraim, and the horse from Jerusalem, and the battle bow shall be cut off: and he shall speak peace unto the heathen: [and his dominion shall be from sea even to sea, and from the river even to the ends of the earth].

Verse 11.)

A DAY OF REMPTION FROM THE PITS OF HELL:(Still by the Blood)

Zec 9:11  As for thee also, [(by the blood of thy covenant) (I have sent forth thy prisoners out of the pit wherein is no water)].

*****AGAIN OUR TEXT:

Zec 10:1  Ask ye of the LORD rain in the time of the latter rain; so the LORD shall make bright clouds, and give them showers of rain, to every one grass in the field.
Zec 10:2  For the idols have spoken vanity, and the diviners have seen a lie, and have told false dreams; they comfort in vain: therefore they went their way as a flock, they were troubled, because there was no shepherd.
Zec 10:3  Mine anger was kindled against the shepherds, and I punished the goats: for the LORD of hosts hath visited his flock the house of Judah, and hath made them as his goodly horse in the battle.
Zec 10:4  Out of him came forth the corner, out of him the nail, out of him the battle bow, out of him every oppressor together.
Zec 10:5  And they shall be as mighty men, which tread down their enemies in the mire of the streets in the battle: [and they shall fight], [because the LORD is with them], and the riders on horses shall be confounded.

What is always the first thing that comes from God when we repent? “BLESSINGS”!

Heb 6:7 SAYS  For the earth which drinketh in the rain that cometh oft upon it, and bringeth forth herbs [meet for them by whom it is dressed, receiveth blessing from God]:

WE ALREADY KNOW THAT THE EARTH WILL BE RESTORED TO A LAVISH GARDEN.

Isa 51:3  For the LORD shall comfort Zion: he will comfort all her waste places; and [he will make her wilderness like Eden], and [her desert like the garden of the LORD]; joy and gladness shall be found therein, thanksgiving, and the voice of melody.

Eze 36:35  And they shall say, [This land that was desolate is become like the garden of Eden]; and the waste and desolate and ruined cities are become fenced, and are inhabited.
Eze 36:36  Then the heathen that are left round about you shall know that I the LORD build the ruined places, and plant that that was desolate: I the LORD have spoken it, and I will do it.

AND THERE WILL ALSO BE A SPIRITUAL RESTORATION:

Isa 61:11  For as the earth bringeth forth her bud, and as the garden causeth the things that are sown in it to spring forth; [so the Lord GOD will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations].

(Verse 2,3)

What is”vanity”? Nothingness; Emptiness; want of substance to satisfy desire; uncertainty; inanity. Emptiness; untruth.

What do we see?

Idols cannot speak at all!
Diviners cannot see anything!

Psa 135:15 says  The idols of the heathen are silver and gold, the work of men’s hands.
Psa 135:16  They have mouths, but they speak not; eyes have they, but they see not;
Psa 135:17  They have ears, but they hear not; neither is there any breath in their mouths.
Psa 135:18  [They that make them are like unto them: so is every one that trusteth in them].

In the days of Jeremiah and Ezekiel, there were false prophets in Israel who contradicted almost every word that God’s prophets spoke. They tickled the ears of those in leadership and those who were rich. They told the people to trust in what they said. Ain’t it strange how we see this happening again in our days? NO, it’s not really strange, it’s the fulfillment of God’s word!

*****You know a king never wants to hear that he has to follow a God or anyone else. The rich never like to be told they are making the wrong decisions. These false prophets took advantage of these men while they had the opportunity. A lot of these Idols were the same ones the enemy worshipped.

You know if not for “oil” the Muslim Religion may not even exist in our day!

*****TO THEIR SHAME THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL LISTENED TO THIS FALSE PROPHECY AND THE TRUE PROPHETS OF GOD WERE MURDERED!

Lam 4:13 SAYS  For the sins of her prophets, and the iniquities of her priests, [that have shed the blood of the just in the midst of her],
Lam 4:14  [They have wandered as blind men in the streets, they have polluted themselves] with blood, so that men could not touch their garments.

JUDGEMENT IS COMING ON ALL MEN THAT HAVE LED GOD’S CHILDREN ASTRAY!

BUT WHAT DO WE SEE. EVEN WHEN THE HAND OF GOD FALLS UPON THEM, THEY STILL PRAY TO FALSE GOD’S!

Rev 6:15  And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;
Rev 6:16  [And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb]:
Rev 6:17  For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS WATCH THE NEWS WHEN THINGS ARE QUIETER AND YOU WILL SEE “THE GREEN MOVEMENT”, WHICH IS THE RELIGION AND WORSHIP OF “GAIA” OR AS WE KNOW HER, “MOTHER EARTH”. THESE PEOPLE WILL ACCEPT ANY RELIGION EXCEPT CHRISTIANITY. AND THAT IS FOR ONE REASON ONLY. WE CAN READ ABOUT IT IN THE BOOK OF GENESIS.

Gen 1:26 SAYS  And God said, [Let us make man in our image, after our likeness]: and [let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth].

THE ENVIRONMENT WE LIVE IN CANNOT SAVE US AND IT CANNOT PROTECT ANYONE FROM THE WRATH OF GOD, WHO CREATED EVERYTHING!

EVERY IDOL NO MATTER THE TYPE HAS ONE THING IN COMMON.

**********IT WAS MADE BY MAN!

NOW THIS EARTH IS NOT MANMADE BUT GOD ALSO SAYS THESE WORDS:

Rom 1:25  Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and [worshipped and served the creature] more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

*********THE “CREATURE” IS EVERYTHING THAT WAS CREATED OF GOD!

Creature = That which is created; every being besides the Creator, or every thing not self-existent. The sun, moon and stars; the earth, animals, plants, light, darkness, air, water, &c., are the creatures of God.

Most educated men can see the foolishness of the worship of man-made items but they sometimes miss this form of Idolatry.

*****There is still only one way to Heaven and ONE WAY to avoid the “WRATH OF GOD”!

Joh 14:6 SAYS  Jesus saith unto him, [I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me].
Joh 14:7  If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.

AND JESUS CHRIST SAID:

Joh 10:7 SAYS  Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, [I am the door of the sheep].

Joh 10:11 SAYS  [I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep].

Joh 10:14 SAYS  [I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine].

DO YOU KNOW THE FATHER, THE SHEPHERD, THE KING OF GLORY? IF YOU KNOW HIM THEN HE KNOWS YOU! TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO KNOW FOR SURE.

(the goodly horse)

*****WHEN THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL COME BACK TO THE LORD DURING HIS MILLENNIAL REIGN, THEY WILL BE THAT GOODLY HORSE.

(verse 4)

(Out of Judah came that corner stone)

Christ crucified is the Rock:

(1) Smitten that the Spirit of life may flow from Him to all who will drink.

Exo 17:6  Behold, I will stand before thee there upon the rock in Horeb; and thou shalt smite the rock, and there shall come water out of it, that the people may drink. And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel.

1Co 10:4  And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.

Joh 4:13  Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:
Joh 4:14  But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.

Joh 7:37  In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.
Joh 7:38  He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
Joh 7:39  (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)

(2) To the Church the foundation and chief corner Stone.

Eph 2:20  And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;
Eph 2:21  In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:
Eph 2:22  In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.

(3) To the Jews at His first coming a “stumbling stone”.

Rom 9:32  Wherefore? Because they sought it not by faith, but as it were by the works of the law. For they stumbled at that stumblingstone;
Rom 9:33  As it is written, Behold, I lay in Sion a stumblingstone and rock of offence: and whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

1Co 1:23  But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;
1Co 1:24  But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.

(4) to Israel at His second coming the “headstone of the corner”.

Zec 10:4  Out of him came forth the corner,

(5) To the Gentile world-power the smiting “stone cut out without hands”.

Dan 2:34  Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces.

(6) In the divine purpose, the Stone which, after the destruction of Gentile world-power, is to grow and fill the earth.

Dan 2:35  Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: [and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth].

(7) To unbelievers the crushing Stone of judgment.

Mat 21:44  And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.

(out of him the nail) When you hang your coat on a nail, you are at home or in a place you are safe.

Ezr 9:8  And now for a little space grace hath been shewed from the LORD our God, to leave us a remnant to escape, and [to give us a nail in his holy place, that our God may lighten our eyes, and give us a little reviving in our bondage].

Isa 22:23  And [I will fasten him as a nail in a sure place]; and he shall be for a glorious throne to his father’s house.

(out of him the battle bow)

Gen 49:24  But his bow abode in strength, and the arms of his hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob; (from thence is the shepherd, the stone of Israel:)

(out of him every oppressor together)

Rev 19:15  And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
Rev 19:16  And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.

(Verse 5)

WHAT CAME OUT OF JUDAH?

JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD!

WHO DOES CHRIST BRING WITH HIM?

THE ARMIES OF GOD!

Rev 19:11  And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
Rev 19:12  His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
Rev 19:13  And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
Rev 19:14  [And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean].

ARE YOU IN THIS ARMY OF GOD? YOU CAN BE IF YOU BELIEVE AND REPENT YOUR WAY AND FOLLOW HIS WAY!

Zec 10:6  And I will strengthen the house of Judah, and I will save the house of Joseph, and I will bring them again to place them; for I have mercy upon them: and they shall be as though I had not cast them off: for I am the LORD their God, and will hear them.
Zec 10:7  And they of Ephraim shall be like a mighty man, and their heart shall rejoice as through wine: yea, their children shall see it, and be glad; their heart shall rejoice in the LORD.
Zec 10:8  I will hiss for them, and gather them; for I have redeemed them: and they shall increase as they have increased.
Zec 10:9  And I will sow them among the people: and they shall remember me in far countries; and they shall live with their children, and turn again.
Zec 10:10  I will bring them again also out of the land of Egypt, and gather them out of Assyria; and I will bring them into the land of Gilead and Lebanon; and place shall not be found for them.
Zec 10:11  And he shall pass through the sea with affliction, and shall smite the waves in the sea, and all the deeps of the river shall dry up: and the pride of Assyria shall be brought down, and the sceptre of Egypt shall depart away.
Zec 10:12  And I will strengthen them in the LORD; and they shall walk up and down in his name, saith the LORD.

(Verse 6-12)

THE DELIVERANCE OF ISRAEL:

We have an obligation to believe the word of God. If we do not believe these things about the Children of Israel then how can we say we believe in our “Salvation”. The Bible says:

Rom 11:25 says  For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.
Rom 11:26  And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, [There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob]:
Rom 11:27  For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.

King David wrote a song for this occasion, it goes something like this:

Psa 14:1 The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.
Psa 14:2  The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God.
Psa 14:3  They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
Psa 14:4  Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they eat bread, and call not upon the LORD.
Psa 14:5  There were they in great fear: for God is in the generation of the righteous.
Psa 14:6  Ye have shamed the counsel of the poor, because the LORD is his refuge.
Psa 14:7  Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! [when the LORD bringeth back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad].

Isa 59:20 says  And the Redeemer shall come to Zion, and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob, saith the LORD.
Isa 59:21  As for me, this is my covenant with them, saith the LORD; [My spirit that is upon thee, and my words which I have put in thy mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed, nor out of the mouth of thy seed’s seed, saith the LORD, from henceforth and for ever].

Israel, so named from the grandson of Abraham, was chosen for a fourfold mission:

(1) To witness to the unity of God in the midst of universal idolatry:

Deu 6:4  Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:
Deu 6:5  And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.

Isa 43:10  Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.
Isa 43:11  I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour.
Isa 43:12  I have declared, and have saved, and I have shewed, when there was no strange god among you: therefore ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, that I am God.

(2) To illustrate to the nations the blessedness of serving the true God.

Deu 33:26  There is none like unto the God of Jeshurun, who rideth upon the heaven in thy help, and in his excellency on the sky.
Deu 33:27  The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms: and he shall thrust out the enemy from before thee; and shall say, Destroy them.
Deu 33:28  Israel then shall dwell in safety alone: the fountain of Jacob shall be upon a land of corn and wine; also his heavens shall drop down dew.
Deu 33:29  Happy art thou, O Israel: who is like unto thee, O people saved by the LORD, the shield of thy help, and who is the sword of thy excellency! and thine enemies shall be found liars unto thee; and thou shalt tread upon their high places.

Psa 144:15  Happy is that people, that is in such a case: yea, happy is that people, whose God is the LORD.

(3) To receive, preserve, and transmit the Scripture

Deu 4:5  Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments, even as the LORD my God commanded me, that ye should do so in the land whither ye go to possess it.
Deu 4:6  Keep therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes, and say, Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.
Deu 4:7  For what nation is there so great, who hath God so nigh unto them, as the LORD our God is in all things that we call upon him for?
Deu 4:8  And what nation is there so great, that hath statutes and judgments so righteous as all this law, which I set before you this day?

Rom 3:1  What advantage then hath the Jew? or what profit is there of circumcision?
Rom 3:2  Much every way: chiefly, [because that unto them were committed the oracles of God].

(4) To produce, as to His humanity, the Messiah:

Gen 3:15  And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

Gen 12:3  And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

Gen 22:8  And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering: so they went both of them together.

Gen 22:18  And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.

Gen 49:10  The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.

Isa 7:14  Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

Isa 9:6  For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
Isa 9:7  Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.
Isa 9:8  The Lord sent a word into Jacob, and it hath lighted upon Israel.

Mat 1:1  The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.

Rom 1:3  Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh;
Rom 1:4  And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead:

Joh 4:25  The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things.
Joh 4:26  Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he.

Joh 14:6  Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

According to the prophets, Israel, regathered from all nations, restored to her own land and converted, [is yet to have her greatest earthly exaltation and glory].

***** THERE IS ONLY ONE SIN THAT PUTS PEOPLE IN HELL!

THE SIN OF UNBELIEF.

THESE WORDS ARE THE WORDS OF JESUS CHRIST

Joh 16:8 SAYS  And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:
Joh 16:9  [Of sin, because they believe not on me];

JESUS CHRIST DIED ON THE CROSS AND PAID FOR EVERY OTHER SIN THAT HAS BEEN AND WILL BE COMMITTED ON THIS EARTH!

TO REJECT THE WORD OF GOD IS TO REJECT LIFE ETERNAL!

BELIEVE IT OR NOT, THERE WILL A GREAT REJOICING IN THE WORLD THE DAY THE SAVIOUR RETURNS AND TAKES OVER THIS EARTH.

GOD DOES NOT FORGET HIS PEOPLE. 

RIGHT NOW WE OF THE CHURCH MAY APPEAR WEAK AND POWERLESS IN THIS LOST AND DYING WORLD BUT WE CAN NEVER UNDER ESTIMATE THE POWER OF THE LIVING GOD AND OUR SAVIOUR. OUR WEAKNESS CAN BE TURNED TO GREAT STRENGTH THROUGH THE HOLY SPIRIT.

JESUS IS COMING SOON AND WE WILL BE GOING HOME.

LET’S PRAY!

    • Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you shall be saved.

      There are four steps:

      1.) Believe, not in but on Jesus.
      2.) Repent all your sin.
      3.) Profess you your faults to God.
      4.) Do It! Be a doer of the Word of God.

      The Bible says:

      Rom 3:10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:

      Rom 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

      Rom 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

      Rom 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

      Rom 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
      Rom 10:10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

      Rom 10:9 That if (Kimberly) shalt confess with (Kimberly’s) mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in (Kimberly’s) heart that God hath raised him from the dead, (Kimberly) shalt be saved.

      This is the truth of the Bible!
