SOURCE of wars

 

The LORD JESUS said:

Matthew 24:6-7

King James Version

6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: 

see that ye be not troubled: 

for all these things must come to pass, 

but the end is not yet.

7 For nation shall rise against nation, 

and kingdom against kingdom: 

and there shall be famines, 

and pestilences, 

and earthquakes, 

in divers places.


Why are there so many wars everywhere?

Why do men go to war?

Why does he fight his brothers, and sisters?

Scripture tells us why.

James 4

King James Version

4 From whence come wars and fightings among you? 

come they not hence, 

even of your lusts that war in your members?

2 Ye lust, and have not: 

ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: 

ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not.

3 Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, 

that ye may consume it upon your lusts.

4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, 

know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? 

whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world 

is the enemy of God.

5 Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, 

The spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy?

6 But he giveth more grace. 

Wherefore he saith, 

God resisteth the proud, 

but giveth grace unto the humble.

7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. 

Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

8 Draw nigh to God, 

and he will draw nigh to you. 

Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; 

and purify your hearts, ye double minded.

9 Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: 

let your laughter be turned to mourning, 

and your joy to heaviness.

10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, 

and he shall lift you up.

11 Speak not evil one of another, brethren. 

He that speaketh evil of his brother, 

and judgeth his brother, 

speaketh evil of the law, 

and judgeth the law: 

but if thou judge the law, 

thou art not a doer of the law, 

but a judge.

12 There is one lawgiver, 

who is able to save and to destroy: 

who art thou that judgest another?

13 Go to now, ye that say, 

To day or to morrow we will go into such a city, 

and continue there a year, 

and buy and sell, and get gain:

14 Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. 

For what is your life? 

It is even a vapour, 

that appeareth for a little time, 

and then vanisheth away.

15 For that ye ought to say, 

If the Lord will, we shall live, 

and do this, or that.

16 But now ye rejoice in your boastings: 

all such rejoicing is evil.

17 Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, 

and doeth it not, to him it is sin.

RAPTURE and Rosh Hashanah

Leviticus 23:23-25

King James Version

23 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,

24 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, 

In the seventh month, 

in the first day of the month, 

shall ye have a sabbath, 

a memorial of blowing of trumpets, 

an holy convocation.

25 Ye shall do no servile work therein: 

but ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the Lord.


This 26th September 2022, Israel will celebrate Rosh Hashanah.

What does the feast of trumpets have to do with the Rapture, and the salvation of Jews?

It takes a born again Jew, Amir Tsarfati, to explain the prophetic interpretation of such a feast, through this video:

"The True Meaning of Rosh Hashanah"


He turns to the Bible, to put feasts in perspective.

Colossians 2:16-17

King James Version

16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, 

or in drink, 

or in respect of an holyday, 

or of the new moon, 

or of the sabbath days:

17 Which are a shadow of things to come; 

but the body is of Christ.


Another verse comes to mind:

Hebrews 10:1-6

King James Version

10 For the law having a shadow of good things to come, 

and not the very image of the things, 

can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year 

continually make the comers thereunto perfect.

2 For then would they not have ceased to be offered? 

because that the worshippers once purged 

should have had no more conscience of sins.

3 But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance again 

made of sins every year.

4 For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats 

should take away sins.

5 Wherefore when he cometh into the world, 

he saith, 

Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, 

but a body hast thou prepared me:

6 In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin 

thou hast had no pleasure.


Tsarfati also reminds unbelieving Jews:

Zechariah 12:10

King James Version

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.


In God's plan of salvation, a veil has been placed upon Israel.

Romans 11:8

King James Version

8 (According as it is written, 

God hath given them the spirit of slumber, 

eyes that they should not see, 

and ears that they should not hear;) 

unto this day.


Only when they believe in JESUS, will the veil be lifted.

2 Corinthians 3:14-18

King James Version

14 But their minds were blinded: 

for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away 

in the reading of the old testament; 

which vail is done away in Christ.

15 But even unto this day, 

when Moses is read, 

the vail is upon their heart.

16 Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, 

the vail shall be taken away.

17 Now the Lord is that Spirit: 

and where the Spirit of the Lord is, 

there is liberty.

18 But we all, 

with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, 

are changed into the same image from glory to glory, 

even as by the Spirit of the Lord.


GOD has a purpose for Israel's temporary blindness.

Romans 11:25

King James Version

25 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.


Amir Tsarfati reminds us, that we not sensationalize anything:

"The feast of trumpets is for Israel, 

and the Rapture can happen any day now."


"This September 26 is not about the Rapture, 

but Israel's celebrating the feast of trumpets."


"Let's wish them happy Rosh Hashanah, 

and pray for their salvation."


There is really only one Rabbi, one Master, one GOD, and one way to be saved.

John 14:6

King James Version

6 Jesus saith unto him, 

I am the way, the truth, and the life: 

no man cometh unto the Father, 

but by me.


Acts 16:31

King James Version

31 And they said, 

Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, 

and thou shalt be saved, 

and thy house.


1 Corinthians 15:1-4

King James Version

15 Moreover, brethren, 

I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, 

which also ye have received, 

and wherein ye stand;

2 By which also ye are saved, 

if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, 

unless ye have believed in vain.

3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, 

how that Christ died for our sins 

according to the scriptures;

4 And that he was buried, 

and that he rose again the third day 

according to the scriptures:

GOD's RAINBOW

 

Genesis 9:13

King James Version

13 I do set my bow in the cloud, 

and it shall be for a token of a covenant 

between me and the earth.


The rainbow, is GOD's rainbow.

Used, according to His purpose.

We found THREE instances wherein GOD used a rainbow:


ONE, as testimony of His covenant with Noah, and his sons.

In total contrast to how the world is using it now.

Here's what the Bible says:

Genesis 9:8-17

King James Version

8 And God spake unto Noah, 

and to his sons with him, saying,

9 And I, 

behold, 

I establish my covenant with you, 

and with your seed after you;

10 And with every living creature that is with you, 

of the fowl, 

of the cattle, 

and of every beast of the earth with you; 

from all that go out of the ark, 

to every beast of the earth.

11 And I will establish my covenant with you, 

neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; 

neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth.

12 And God said, 

This is the token of the covenant which I make 

between me and you and every living creature that is with you, 

for perpetual generations:

13 I do set my bow in the cloud, 

and it shall be for a token of a covenant 

between me and the earth.

14 And it shall come to pass, 

when I bring a cloud over the earth, 

that the bow shall be seen in the cloud:

15 And I will remember my covenant, 

which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; 

and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh.

16 And the bow shall be in the cloud; 

and I will look upon it, 

that I may remember the everlasting covenant 

between God and every living creature of all flesh 

that is upon the earth.

17 And God said unto Noah, 

This is the token of the covenant, 

which I have established between me 

and all flesh that is upon the earth.


TWO, in reflection of His GLORY.

As shown in prophet Ezekiel's vision:

Ezekiel 1:28

King James Version

28 As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud 

in the day of rain, 

so was the appearance of the brightness round about. 

This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord. 

And when I saw it, 

I fell upon my face, 

and I heard a voice of one that spake.


THREE, used in manifestation of GOD's supreme power.

As shown on this third verse:

Revelation 10:1-4

King James Version

10 And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, 

clothed with a cloud: 

and a rainbow was upon his head, 

and his face was as it were the sun, 

and his feet as pillars of fire:

2 And he had in his hand a little book open: 

and he set his right foot upon the sea, 

and his left foot on the earth,

3 And cried with a loud voice, 

as when a lion roareth: 

and when he had cried, 

seven thunders uttered their voices.

4 And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, 

I was about to write: 

and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, 

Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, 

and write them not.


Beware how we use the rainbow.

It cannot serve man's desecrating purpose.

The rainbow is GOD's rainbow.

It is sacred to the LORD.

Believers abide by that.
