Updated 01/01/6989 4th day of the week (03/21/07)
Today, we have as Yahveh’s Word predicted “scoffers” in these “last days” saying where is the promise of His coming. This prophecy cannot be truer in places of employment, AOL and Yahoo “Christian” chat rooms. “Many” (Matthew 24:5) professing “Christians” use what Yahshua said in Matthew 24:36 to justify their unbelief. I’m going to show you in the scriptures their misunderstanding, error and sin of unbelief.
First let’s look at that verse of scripture the “many” (Matthew 24:5) use to deny YaHVeH’s Word:
Matthew (Matit’Yah – ha’Levi): 24:36: But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the malakim of shameh, but My AB only.
You would think just by reading that verse the matter would be settled, but it isn’t. When the “many” (Matthew 24:5) quote this verse they are forgetting two critical points in their jump to their conclusion:
1) When Yahshua made that statement in Matthew 24:36 He was still on this earth in the flesh.
2) The “many” (Matthew 24:5) forget Revelation 1:1:
Revelation: 1:1: The Revelation of Yahshua Mashiyach, which YaHVeH gave unto Him, to shew unto His servants things which must shortly come to pass; and He sent and signified it by His malak unto His servant Yahochanan (John).
Notice in verse 1 of Revelation chapter 1 that it is YaHVeH (Elohim/ “God”/Theos) the FATHER/AB who gives this revelation to Yahshua the Messiah, and then Yahshua gives it to His malak to give to the Apostle Yahochanan. So, what this verse reveals is what Yahshua said in Matthew 24:36, only YaHVeH the AB knows the day and hour. What Revelation 1:1 tells us now that Yahshua has ascended to shameh and is at Elohim the AB’s right hand, is that HE the AB is revealing to HIS Ben the information HE already knows (Matthew 24:36).
YaHVeH through HIS Word exposes these “scoffers” in these “last days”, their own unbelief! Read articles:
I know that YaHVeH through HIS prophetic Word (John 1:1; Revelation 19:10) has given us a count down to the return of Yahshua the Mashiyach in the clouds. Read article:
|39)YaHVeH has a set time|
The inspiration for writing this article came when I was in one of Yahoo's “Christian” chat room. Someone in the chat room brought up what is the length of time of one generation? One person in the chat room said it was 40 years, and another said 50 years. I disagree with both. I believe a generation is 20 or 21 years. Let me show you why I believe this. If we say 21 years it would be divisible by 7. We need to start with this verse found in Exodus 20:5:
Exodus (Shemot): 20:5: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I YaHVeH thy Elohim am a jealous El, visiting the iniquity of the ab upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate ME;
Focus on the phrase “visiting the iniquity of the ab upon the children unto the third and fourth generation.” Now combine this with what Daniel said in Daniel 9:2:
Daniel: 9:2: In the first year of his reign I Daniel understood by books the number of the years, whereof the Word of YaHVeH came to YirmiYah the prophet, that HE would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Yerusalem.
It’s important to remember the 70-year time frame. Here is what YaHVeH had YirmiYah write:
Jeremiah (YirmiYah): 25:12: And it shall come to pass, when seventy years are accomplished, that I will punish the melek of Babylon, and that nation, saith YaHVeH, for their iniquity, and the land of the Chaldeans, and will make it perpetual desolations.
How does the third and fourth generation in Exodus 20:5 fit into this 70-year time frame today you may ask? It fits like this:
1st generation = 70 (21) years old, starting from May 14th, 1948. I have had two conflicting answers of when this would have fallen on YaHVeH's calendar. One answer was the 5th day of the 2nd Month, and the other answer was the 13th day of the 2nd Month. If anybody knows for sure please let me know.
2nd generation = 49 (42) years old.
3rd generation = 28 (63) years old.
4th generation = 7 (70) years old, when the 70 years is complete.
The House of Yahudah (Judah) has now been a nation for 59 years. It’s very important for us as believers to understand this crucial fact about the House of Yahudah’s nation status. You must remember when Revelation was given to the body of Yahshua the House of Yahudah was a nation in Yahshua the Messiah’s and the Apostles day. The book of Revelation was a warning to the body of Yahshua in Yerusalem in the Apostles day, and now after almost a little under 2000 years has passed by, The House of Yahudah is a nation once again and the warning to the body of Yahshua from the book of Revelation is even more relevant for us today! Some of the “many” (Matthew 24:5) would have you believe that the book of Revelation was only for the Apostles day and has all been fulfilled. Others of the “many” (Matthew 24:5) still can’t understand it and others would have believers disregard it even being important to read and understand. Most of this is due to the fact that the “many” have rejected the foundation that the body of Yahshua has been built on:
Ephesians: 2:20: And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Yahshua Mashiyach Himself being the chief corner stone;
“Many” (Matthew 24:5) try to read Revelation and understand it without even reading and studying the Prophets (II Timothy 2:15), which causes them to come up with understanding from their own vain imagination (I Cor 14:32). Some of the “many” will even try to read and understand the book of Revelation in a consecutive order as it was written down. Why do they do this? They do this because they continue to reject reading and studying the prophets (Isaiah/YashaYah 28:9-10). The “many” are fulfilling what has always happen when YaHVeH sent HIS prophets to warn the people (Romans 10:14), they hurt, kill and reject them:
Matthew: 23:37: O Yerusalem, Yerusalem, 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!
If you will notice reading Revelation 11:7-8 after the two witnesses finish their preaching these two men are murdered. This confirms once again what Yahshua said in Matthew 23:37.
Yes, the “many” are willingly ignorant of YaHVeH’s Word and these events that are going to take place in the Promised Land and in Yerusalem:
2Peter (Kefa): 3:1: This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance:
2Pe: 3:2: That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the Kadosh prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Rabbi and Saviour:
2Pe: 3:3: Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,
2Pe: 3:4: And saying, Where is the promise of His coming? For since the ab fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.
2Pe: 3:5: For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the Word of YaHVeH the shamayim were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:
Let me turn your attention back to how I believe YaHVeH determines the length of one generation. One of the people who spoke in the chat room used the forty years of the children of Yisrael wandering in the wilderness was a generation. I know this is incorrect because as I have already pointed out, you can ONLY fit two generations into the 70-year prophesied by YirmiYah (Jeremiah 25:12). Remember YaHVeH’s prophetic Word says to the 3rd and 4th generation (Exodus 20:5). Also the forty-year wandering in the wilderness would have wiped out those who were 20 years old and up that murmured against YaHVeH:
Numbers (B’midvar): 14:28: Say unto them, As truly as I live, saith YaHVeH, as ye have spoken in MINE ears, so will I do to you:
Nu: 14:29: Your carcases shall fall in this wilderness; and all that were numbered of you, according to your whole number, from twenty years old and upward, which have murmured against ME,
Nu: 14:30: Doubtless ye shall not come into the land, concerning which I sware to make you dwell therein, save Caleb the ben of Yephunneh, and Yahshua the ben of Nun.
Nu: 14:31: But your little ones, which ye said should be a prey, them will I bring in, and they shall know the land, which ye have despised.
Nu: 14:32: But as for you, your carcases, they shall fall in this wilderness.
Nu: 14:33: And your children shall wander in the wilderness forty years, and bear your whoredoms, until your carcases be wasted in the wilderness.
This is how I understand verse 34:
Numbers: 14:34: After the number of the days in which ye searched the land, even forty days, each day for a year, shall ye bear your iniquities, even forty years, and ye shall know MY breach of promise.
I believe now that we are in the 3rd temple period:
(3rd and final Temple that will be built with mans hands), compared to the 1st and 2nd temple period that time becomes literal (You need to read article 83) The last 7 years of the 70 years of YirmiYah and Daniel 9:2 ). Instead of a day for a year the day is a literal day, so forty years will be literally forty days. Read article:
I have no doubt in my mind we are in the time frame YaHVeH has set (Psalms 102:13). Seventy years is the end of that count down. This would also fulfill the prophecy in Matthew 24:22 of that time being cut short. I’m beginning to understand the time is being cut short on how the House of Yahudah and “Traditional Christianity” understand it. If they believe 40 years is a generation than it would take 120 years for the 3rd generation to come into play. Also, the House of Yahudah has the year figured at 5767 (as of 2007), which would make the year “7,000”, 1,233 (5767 + 1233 = 7000) years away. YaHVeH is going to cut that time frame short. Also this would confirm the years being "shortened" from 40-years literally to 40-days:
Matthew: 24:22: And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.
