HOW MUCH HAS HUMAN KNOWLEDGE INCREASED?

In our world this day, if only the one verse in Daniel 12:4 is believed–people would understand that all the knowledge (right or wrong) available via the Internet– being so massive that– how can an individual just gain a little understanding of its size? One way to answer this question is to consider the sum total of data held by all the big online storage and service companies like Google, Amazon, Microsoft, and Facebook. Estimates are that the big four store at least 1,200 petabytes between them. That is 1.2 million terabytes (one terabyte is 1,000 gigabytes). And that figure excludes other big providers like Dropbox, Barracuda, and SugarSync, to say nothing of massive servers in industry and academia.  My whole point is this; if we are involved with the mega-giants such as Google, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and endless others, (even I use them only to post what few read) we have no privacy, and if we become involved as a social site for chat, (which I do not do) we are controlled—thus believe all that we choose to believe according to our own thought<-these mistakes I have made->or whatever big name successful speakers have to say. BUT NO MORE WHILE SEEKING EVIDENCE FOR ALL THINGS AT HAND

Jason A can be loved for his seemingly great knowledge—just as countless others worldwide. But what are they missing or not discussing? All manmade and controlled religions are no different than all controlled governments, media, music, television, cartoons, education, food industry, and big pharma which kills through bad medication or the banking business which has always taken people’s money based on their fiat money accompanied with all ways of human life in our crumbling world civilization. Fiat money refers to any currency lacking intrinsic value that is declared legal tender by a government.

Even though I have been reading and studying the Bible alone for 30 years—and never been a church member. All that I can find is biblical error upon error upon error while just having no trust in our human rule or even myself when it comes right down to absolute truth on what exactly lies ahead for our entire human race—other than knowing it will become the worst world chaos ever before on this globe. So what is a man of 63 years to do? Where is real truth? In churches that charge tithes for lies? In governments with more lies? I do believe Daniel 12 speaking of the worst timesoftrouble en route. Matthew 24 also lines up well as signs of the times just as the instruction in Revelation 18:4 to come out of her my people– which mean to be no longer under control of the matrix with meaning based on the 1999 film– which has all people in their unseen unknown prison of life on death row. But even with great faith, living a decade as a have-not, enduring my wife’s many physical hardships- and experiencing this world of today’s Christianity as the most uncaring people being not doers of the words they claim to believe– even though our Master Creator knows all things with nothing ever hid.

If I had the trillion+ worth of the Vatican and other major sources—my only purpose would be toward bringing this world together as one through genuine love, care, compassion, and most important empathy; and that is because even though living a life of no worth—I feel very fortunate not to be a working slave in China or many locations worldwide—nor a victim of human trafficking, thus used as a lucrative sex toy. If I were in the shoes on the millions of abused children worldwide with an example of their suffering in this site http://dreamcatchersforabusedchildren.com/ – my heart would cry along with their tears of sadness. When I think of all the women being beaten and raped—my heart cries on. The refugees, those starving, those homeless, those being tortured, those killed by government genocide, ISIS, and on and on and on as atrocities upon innocent humans which = never-ending heartbreak while feeling so unable to help any.

Welcome to human rule.

Again, if I had the power and wealth of world controllers, (Ephesians 6:12) they would be the first on my hit list followed by all government and religious trash on this planet with Killary Clinton and Obama as perfect examples–unless you like heartless liars along with pedophile politicians and preachers, adulteress politicians and preachers, greedy politicians and preachers, prideful politicians and preachers). In addition, all guilty of any major crimes will also become exterminated. No more prisons. Truth is a truth, and the truth is this; without loving others as we love ourselves—(being the golden rule Christianity and all beliefs ignore) —our human race will never be right—Period!

Where is there but one like-minded person on this earth for friendship and perhaps even a little help?

DEADHEADS WORLDWIDE

Because truth is never good, people worldwide hate it, ignore it, and despise those that share it – therefore just keep their heads buried in the sands of life as if everything is alright or will get better — when in truth — the worst times of trouble ever before on this planet earth are inevitable with all religions and beliefs being the most brain dead of the over 7.5 billion civilization. Why is that? Because humans put their trust in humans rather than the Creator of all that exists throughout Eternity — thus we have a world population not ready for the unexpected through uncountable gruesome ways.

WHATEVER HAPPENED TO INTELLIGENT CONVERSATION??

100_3383

First and most important is knowing there is hundreds of millions websites, and hundreds of millions blogs/writings/articles/books covering all subjects in one way or another; so how is it possible for any to know who is right and who is wrong?

None, no, not one of this world through being affiliated in any worldly ways have spiritual understanding or obedience according to scripture not believed nor understood such as Revelation 12:9,  Job 15:15-16, Psalms 14:2-3, Isaiah 59:1-4, and much more concerning this world of Israelite – Christianity; and that includes those living by eternal law regarding 7th day Sabbath, Feasts, clean foods, and more according to The Torah being the only way to please YHVH, yet most all still remain walking in unseen darkness via false light as in having no love with deed for others, such as my wife and I living in many of life’s difficulties through these past 10 years — but rather all loving themselves and things of this world which makes knowing YHVH in spirit and truth totally impossible — so says the Holy Bible through scripture with instruction never taught by wolves in sheep’s clothing, or completely ignored by all reading words for their walk in this life..

There is an answer for what is right, but only few will spiritually comprehend its meaning of becoming disassociated with this world – therefore no longer a part while seeking direction from not of this world. . .

“If you belonged to the world, the world would treat you with affection and would love you as its own. But because you are not of the world [no longer one with it], but I have chosen (selected) you out of the world, the world hates (detests) you. (John 15:19)

Would you like better understanding of the verse just read?

https://dochub.com/timesoftrouble/RJP16w/how-christians-lacking-spiritual-knowledge-hate-god

Because I have never been a church member in my life of 61 years, I am teachable to Yehovah via 27 years of private study – thus my brain circuits have not become corrupted through putting trust in myself nor humankind beliefs which only mislead; and because of that faith, trust, and living this past decade with many hardships through lacking basic need as just regular meals — and being detested by this world of Christianity that offers no help in any way – reason is because they lack fruits as instructed in the Bible. For example – John 13:34, 14:21, Matthew 22:36-40, 25:31-46, Luke 6:36-46, 1 John 3:15-20, 4:7-8, 20-21 — therefore will be thrown into the fires of affliction without mercy as written in John 15:1-6, and when resurrection for judgement comes, they all will be judged as the selfish goats not allowed to be in the millennial kingdom.

https://ttimesoftrouble.wordpress.com/2016/09/03/the-millennial-resurrections/

I therefore follow this instruction:

“Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths. If then you have been raised with Yeshua [to a new life, thus sharing His resurrection from the dead], aim at and seek the [rich, eternal treasures] that are above, where Yeshua is, seated at the right hand of Yehovah Elohim. And set your minds and keep them set on what is above (the higher things), not on the things that are on the earth. For [as far as this world is concerned] you have died, and your [new, real] life is hidden with Yeshua in Elohim. When Yeshua, Who is our life, appears, then you also will appear with Him in [the splendor of His] glory.   (Proverbs 3:5-6, Colossians 3:1-4)

When an entire human race becomes nothing but controlled pawns within our dying civilization, which is also Satan’s Kingdom, all that any know is what their natural mind chooses (1 Corinthians 2:14) according to what has been planted in their thoughts while continually being fed lies, mislead, and themselves feeling secure as knowing all needed; when in truth, every individual of this world being near 7.5 billion have been sucked into the vortex of what is coming as the worst timesoftrouble ever before on this earth, which according to all the signs of the times (Matthew 16:2-3) is almost upon America, and all great nations worldwide bringing much affliction for 3 1/2 years — until the antichrist appears doing great miracles to make all things seem right, with today’s Christianity included, so that he is worshiped by all worldwide as God — only to bring 3 1/2 years great tribulation, death, and destruction everywhere upon earth.

So how can we know exactly where humanity now stands as believers?

“While He was seated on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately and said, Tell us, when will this take place, and what will be the sign of Your coming and of the end (the completion, the consummation) of the age?  Yeshua answered them, Be careful that no one misleads you [deceiving you and leading you into error].  (Matthew 24:3-4)

First of all comes one main fact not believed, and that is because noone on this earth being of this world, including billions of Bible believers, will accept these words of scripture with themselves included. . .

“And the huge dragon was cast down and out—that age-old serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan, he who is the seducer (deceiver) of all humanity the world over; he was forced out and down to the earth, and his angels were flung out along with him. Revelation 12:9

If you genuinely want to know Satan’s purpose for his earthy kingdom . . .

https://ttimesoftrouble.wordpress.com/2017/03/10/the-kingdom-of-satan-is-earth/

If only humankind could remove eyes from themselves, they would first see our world of division, and then what is really happening to civilization worldwide followed with what has been done to rivers, lakes, oceans, soil, air, and even the junkyard in orbit; and when added there is no end to all the atrocities committed against our human race since the beginning, and during these end times comes massive population reduction as part of the plan for the new world order. Study the Georgia Guidestones in the vigilantcitizen link below for unreported breaking news of old most are unaware of.

“For many will come in (on the strength of) My name [appropriating the name which belongs to Me], saying, I am the Yeshua (the Messiah), and they will lead many astray. (verse 5)

What you just read above represents this entire world of false religion known as Christianity that has uncountable different doctrines, spirits, images, beliefs, traditions, wrongly titled names being God and Jesus Christ, and much more having nothing to do with truth; and I have always been just as guilty through using the same names as billions – until Yehovah (YHVH ELOHIM) made clear the importance of knowing not only His personal name, but also Yeshua HaMashiach our world saviour through verses never taught or even discussed in today’s Christianity. Proverbs 30:4, Psalms 9:10, John 17:6, 17:26, and many more when any genuine believer will actually study to show themselves approved. (2 Timothy 2:15)

https://dochub.com/timesoftrouble/XL6Xml/how_could_an_entire_human_race_actually_be_deceived

Below shares some information on proper names – but what is most important is our search with desire to know what all worldly know not — such as loving others through more than meaningless words having no works, not using mistranslated names for our eternal creator Yehovah and Yeshua, keeping all commandments, and thus becoming worthy as firstfruits through obedience for great never ending reward. (Revelation 5:10)

https://dochub.com/timesoftrouble/ljD9ZQ/vital-untaught-truth-in-all-religions-worldwide

Contains near 200 pages using scripture on just how YHVH views all shepherds, preachers, pastors, ministers, reverends, bishops, prophets, and all religious titles including the Pope along with how He labels congregations worldwide — and truth from the Bible is not pleasing to this world of so-called Christians talking religious talk while not walking their instructed walk as doers of the word, rather than hearers only deceiving themselves.

And know also there is no religious leaders within the buildings of man, falsely called churches, worldwide where Satan dwells that will tell you truth going against them, or why Christians should love others as themselves being the royal law they all ignore. (James 1:22-25, 2:8, 13-26) Also in this reading is how those obedient will gain YHVH’s mercy during affliction.

“Behold, the Lord’s eye is upon those who fear Him [who revere and worship Him with awe], who wait for Him and hope in His mercy and loving-kindness, To deliver them from death and keep them alive in famine. Our inner selves wait [earnestly] for the Lord; He is our Help and our Shield. For in Him does our heart rejoice, because we have trusted (relied on and been confident) in His holy name. So then He has mercy on whomever He wills (chooses) and He hardens (makes stubborn and unyielding the heart of) whomever He wills.I the Lord search the mind, I try the heart, even to give to every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his doings.  (Psalms 33:18-21, Romans 9:18, Jeremiah 17:10)

Back to Matthew 24

“And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars; see that you are not frightened or troubled, for this must take place, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in place after place; All this is but the beginning [the early pains] of the birth pangs [of the intolerable anguish].  Then they will hand you over to suffer affliction and tribulation and put you to death, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. (verses 6-9)

This world has always had many wars, conflicts, violence, famine, and much shed blood; however, just as our population has increased, so has human knowledge (Daniel 12:4) for weapons with nuclear, biological, and chemical included for mass extermination – thus leaving this world of wars, rebel violence, drug cartels, human trafficking, slavery, racial hate, genocide, torture, great suffering, famine, drought, earthquakes, and much more disaster — being end time prophecy — accompanied with much evil upon a blinded world of innocent people that have never had any proper rule based on laws of love with peace and unity – rather than what Satan represents being lies, hate, wars, and death.

 “And then many will be offended and repelled and will begin to distrust and desert [Him Whom they ought to trust and obey] and will stumble and fall away and betray one another and pursue one another with hatred. And many false prophets will rise up and deceive and lead many into error. And the love of the great body of people will grow cold because of the multiplied lawlessness and iniquity, (verses 10-12)

Because our world civilization has always been more unstable than water, and because all beliefs, religions, and Christianity have never been taught truth on their own coming destiny having no safety, no rapture, and no escape — massive and very extreme suffering is coming upon a human race totally unprepared — therefore, through years of affliction, deception, and mislead, multitudes of Israelite Christians will believe the antichrist has been the cause of all their suffering through strong delusion. . .

“The coming of the [Antichrist, the lawless] one is through the activity of Satan, [attended] with great power [all kinds of counterfeit miracles] and [deceptive] signs and false wonders [all of them lies], and by unlimited seduction to evil and with all the deception of wickedness for those who are perishing, because they did not welcome the love of the truth [of the gospel] so as to be saved [they were spiritually blind, and rejected the truth that would have saved them]. Because of this God will send upon them a misleading influence, [an activity of error and deception] so they will believe the lie, (2 Thessalonians 2:9-11)

Therefore, today’s misled world of Christianity will be among this world’s joy when the witnesses in Revelation have been killed, and lie three and a half days. Read Revelation 11:7-4, and then for a better understanding, this link below to learn who those two witnesses really are.

https://ttimesoftrouble.wordpress.com/2016/10/17/the-two-witnesses-of-revelation-2/

So what exactly do these following words mean?

But he who endures to the end will be saved. (Verse 13)

Isaiah 6 Revelation 6 002Isaiah 6 and Revelation 6 means to endure regardless of circumstance that has taken multitudes by surprise and without warning; and all because this world of shepherds teach not truth as made clear in scripture; therefore even with years of what I study through prayer to deliver — scorpions hear not what YHVH speaks. (Ezekiel 2 KJV)

Those under persecutions and afflictions, holding fast their faith even though it leads to the martyr’s death, – will have earned whatever their position may be within the millennial kingdom according to their fruits.  So become wise and know that all Christian Israelite’s must not be led astray by false teachers nor offended by the prevalence of lies, wickedness, immorality, greed, dishonesty, or hate – while through faith retaining their love for YHVH, and understanding why these things must be.

And this good news of the kingdom (the Gospel) will be preached throughout the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and then will come the end. (Matthew 24:14)

Who will become the teacher preachers spreading news of the coming kingdom worldwide during great tribulation?

How Christians Lacking Spiritual Knowledge Hate Yahovah God

1-corinthians-2-003

Then the disciples came to Him and asked, “Why do you speak to the crowds in parables?” Jesus replied to them, “To you it has been granted to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been granted. For whoever has [spiritual wisdom because he is receptive to God’s word], to him more will be given, and he will be richly and abundantly supplied; but whoever does not have [spiritual wisdom because he has devalued God’s word], even what he has will be taken away from him. This is the reason I speak to the crowds in parables: because while [having the power of] seeing they do not see, and while [having the power of] hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand and grasp [spiritual things]. In them the prophecy of Isaiah is being fulfilled, which says,

‘You will hear and keep on hearing, but never understand;
And you will look and keep on looking, but never comprehend;

For this nation’s heart has grown hard,
And with their ears they hardly hear,
And they have [tightly] closed their eyes,
Otherwise they would see with their eyes,
And hear with their ears,
And understand with their heart, and turn [to Me]
And I would heal them [spiritually].’ Matthew 13:10-15 (AMP)

Following are words this world of Christianity, through actions, really has no understanding of;

“If the world hates you [and it does], know that it has hated Me before it hated you. If you belonged to the world, the world would love [you as] its own and would treat you with affection. But you are not of the world [you no longer belong to it], but I have chosen you out of the world. And because of this the world hates you. Remember [and continue to remember] that I told you, ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you. If they kept My word, they will keep yours also. But they will do all these [hurtful] things to you for My name’s sake [because you bear My name and are identified with Me], for they do not know the One who sent Me. John 15:18-21

Meaning of how Christian’s Hate Yeshua Messiah and Yehovah God the Father

This series of scriptures will highlight the world’s danger to us. The apostle James writes: “Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God”

Do not all worldly Christians look only to themselves through material wants and desires while doing no deed for others, which our Father sees?

(James 4:4). This epistle is written to a Christian congregation. Even as the Old Testament shows Israel to be a spiritual adulteress to God through the people’s disobedience following the making of the Old Covenant, so are Christians—as part of the bride of Christ, having made the New Covenant—spiritual adulterers when they unfaithfully disobey.

James is not saying these people are lost. He is warning them that they are heading in that direction because they were backsliding, having already been unfaithful. The unstated, yet clear cause of their being drawn back is the world, as if it were the seductive temptress of Proverbs 7.

James’ counsel is that we cannot straddle the fence between YHVH and the world. He is expounding the “no man can serve two masters” principle. These two relationships—YHVH God and the world—frame a black-and-white issue; this war has no neutral zone. A person cannot pursue his self-centered, selfish worldly ambitions and still remain loyal to Yehovah.

The apostle uses the word philos, indicating something dear, which the New King James Version translates as “friend.” He is stressing an affectionate, emotional attachment. Interestingly, The New Testament in Modern English by J.B. Phillips (1959) renders the warning as, “You are like unfaithful wives, flirting with the glamour of this world, and never realizing that to be the world’s lover means becoming the enemy of God!” Seen this way, James describes them as silly, immature children, thoughtlessly gambling away their futures in the Kingdom of God.

I John 2:15 adds a refinement to James’ warning: “Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.” The Greek word translated as “love” is agapao, which suggests a reasoned, determined love. Thus, John’s counsel stresses willfulness rather than mere affectionate attachment. In comparison, one could even describe philos as an unbidden “puppy love,” but agapao—never.

John is saying that we should not have intimate fellowship combined with loyal devotion to the world. Our relationship to it must be a more distant, hands-off one. We certainly must live and do business within it, but we have to fight to keep it from becoming the focus of our way of life. The spiritual reality is that, as we might say today, “The world stands ready to eat us alive.” It chews Christians up and spits them out. If permitted, it can trash spiritual realities that may once have been cherished hopes and dreams.

Galatians 6:14 provides another guiding principle to hold dear: “But God forbid that I should boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.” This is an example of Paul’s spiritual outlook and maturity regarding his relationship with the world. As far as any relationship between him and the world is concerned, the world is dead and crucified, and so is he to it. It is vivid imagery. How much willful devotion can a person have in a relationship going nowhere because both parties are “dead” to each other with what follows adding more factual truth Christians seem to ignore.

Faith and Works

What is the benefit, my fellow believers, if someone claims to have faith but has no [good] works [as evidence]? Can that [kind of] faith save him? [No, a mere claim of faith is not sufficient—genuine faith produces good works.] If a brother or sister is without [adequate] clothing and lacks [enough] food for each day, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace [with my blessing], [keep] warm and feed yourselves,” but he does not give them the necessities for the body, what good does that do? So too, faith, if it does not have works [to back it up], is by itself dead [inoperative and ineffective].

But someone may say, “You [claim to] have faith and I have [good] works; show me your [alleged] faith without the works [if you can], and I will show you my faith by my works [that is, by what I do].” You believe that God is one; you do well [to believe that]. The demons also believe [that], and shudder and bristle [in awe-filled terror—they have seen His wrath]! But are you willing to recognize, you foolish [spiritually shallow] person, that faith without [good] works is useless? Was our father Abraham not [shown to be] justified by works [of obedience which expressed his faith] when he offered Isaac his son on the altar [as a sacrifice to God]? You see that [his] faith was working together with his works, and as a result of the works, his faith was completed [reaching its maturity when he expressed his faith through obedience]. And the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “Abraham believed God, and this [faith] was credited to him [by God] as righteousness and as conformity to His will,” and he was called the friend of God. You see that a man (believer) is justified by works and not by faith alone [that is, by acts of obedience a born-again believer reveals his faith]. In the same way, was Rahab the prostitute not justified by works too, when she received the [Hebrew] spies as guests and protected them, and sent them away [to escape] by a different route? For just as the [human] body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works [of obedience] is also dead. James 2:14-26

This is the fruit of the carnal mind having their persistently disobedient attitude.

“Now the mind of the flesh is death [both now and forever—because it pursues sin]; but the mind of the Spirit is life and peace [the spiritual well-being that comes from walking with God—both now and forever]; the mind of the flesh [with its sinful pursuits] is actively hostile to God. It does not submit itself to God’s law, since it cannot, and those who are in the flesh [living a life that caters to sinful appetites and impulses] cannot please God.

However, you are not [living] in the flesh [controlled by the sinful nature] but in the Spirit, if in fact the Spirit of God lives in you [directing and guiding you]. But if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him [and is not a child of God].         Romans 8:6-9 (AMP)

The whole worldly system is anti-God. Even though the Christian world patronizes Him, in reality, it hates Jesus Christ, and therefore it hates those who truly follow Him just as I have been experiencing through these past nine years. There is a simple reason why this continual reality exists.

Paul had renounced the whole worldly system. It no longer had any appeal to him; he was, in effect, dead in relation to it. [Disassociated] However, the world’s pressure never ends, which Paul notes in Romans 12:2, “Do not be conformed to this world.” The Greek more correctly reads, “Stop allowing yourself to be fashioned to the pattern of this age,” or as the J.B. Phillips translation puts it, “Don’t let the world around you squeeze you into its own mold.

This is the danger we face when we allow the world to become too important. To be forewarned is to be forearmed. The world subtly but inexorably manipulates us into conformity with its thinking, its value systems, and therefore its attitudes and conduct. If we are alert and truly guarding against an invasion of worldly attitudes and practices, we will soon be able to notice when others relapse into following the course of the world; and who might that be?

“Behold, God puts no trust in His holy ones (angels);
Indeed, the heavens are not pure in His sight—

How much less [pure and clean is] the one who is repulsive and corrupt,
Man, who drinks unrighteousness and injustice [worldly ways] like water! Job 15:15-16
“The Lord has looked down from heaven upon the children of men
To see if there are any who understand (act wisely),
Who [truly] seek after God, [longing for His wisdom and guidance].

They have all turned aside, together they have become corrupt;
There is no one who does good, not even one. Psalms 14:2-3

The persistent influence of the world is a reality because Satan, the god of this world, is its driving force (2 Corinthians 4:4). The world is Satan’s medium, through which he broadcasts his propaganda and disinformation. By confusing people about what to believe, he intends to manipulate humanity. Satan’s pitch to mankind is aimed directly at exciting human nature’s self-indulgent cravings, and he is very good at all he does through being the father of lies all worldly people believe, love, follow and worship in their own unknown ways.

https://dochub.com/timesoftrouble/pV1EQb/the-deceptions-of-satan-the-devil

Due to this Satanic effort, even though we are converted, we are apt to become misinformed, lackadaisical, disinterested, and discouraged. We must be aware of it and absolutely resist it. The apostles’ advice about avoiding intimacy with the world is a form of the proverb, “Evil company corrupts good habits” (1 Corinthians 15:33). Friendship with the world corrupts, and sadly my brothers and sisters worldwide, has not selfish ways made all friends with this world?

My wife and I have had a hard time ever since we met in 2007. Me, an American with age and no work in the Philippines, my wife with physical difficulties, we just have no money, and even no more rice. Any help at all would come as a blessing

WHAT IS REALLY HAVING FAITH?

WHAT IS REALLY HAVING FAITH?

Please, please, please share this writing because we all on this earth need help in different ways.

Faith is preparing for life’s coming storms upon all humanity as written; therefore learning to live on faith through putting trust in only our creator when there is no other way for survival.

When two people are drawn together from different parts of the world while being have-nots with absolutely nothing material in their life, yet stay together regardless of their many hardships to be married and become as one. . .

Our wedding in 2009

There is a purpose for all things through those chosen and called out of this world that all natural worldly minds cannot spiritually grasp. John 15:19  1 Corinthians 2:14

It’s because through faith, there is a purpose for all things.

“We are assured and know that [YHVH being a partner in their labor] all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love YHVH and are called according to [His] design and purpose. Romans 8:28 (AMPC) with God’s name restored.

Through faith, those called and chosen know that they cannot direct their own steps.

“O Lord [pleads Jeremiah in the name of the people], I know that [the determination of] the way of a man is not in himself; it is not in man [even in a strong man or in a man at his best] to direct his [own] steps. Jeremiah 10:23

Through faith, those chosen continually look to the Father for making their path in this life straight according to His will, and never their own.

“In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths. Proverbs 3:6

Through faith, we know to put no trust in humankind because Satan and his ministers scattered worldwide mislead while selling lies for tithes being un biblical.

“So that your faith might not rest in the wisdom of men (human philosophy), but in the power of YHVH. It is better to depend on Yehovah than to trust mortals. 1 Corinthians 2:5, Psalms 118:8

Through faith is knowing this entire world has been misled, deceived, snared, tricked, and beguiled leaving none, no, not one pleasing in the sight of YHVH.

“And the huge dragon was cast down and out—that age-old serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan, he who is the seducer (deceiver) of all humanity the world over; he was forced out and down to the earth, and his angels were flung out along with him. 

“The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men to see if there were any who understood, dealt wisely, and sought after God, inquiring for and of Him and requiring Him [of vital necessity]. They are all gone aside, they have all together become filthy; there is none that does good or right, no, not one. Revelation 12:9, Psalms 14:2-3

Is not scripture true when spiritually sought? Is not the near 7.5 billion living and thinking in worldly ways the children of men? Has not Satan deceived this entire world?

Therefore, through faith, these words of scripture become clearly understood, and taken very personally. . .

“If you belonged to the world, the world would treat you with affection and would love you as its own. But because you are not of the world [no longer one with it], but I have chosen (selected) you out of the world, the world hates (detests) you. John 15:19

Through faith is seen this entire human race in a division led by their own way which seems right and can be told nothing different from whatever their own human spirit leads; thus keeping them of this world, and despising any not like them while lacking the fruits of loving others as they love themselves.

“There is a way which seems right to a man and appears straight before him, but at the end of it is the way of death. Proverbs 14:12 and 16:25

Through faith, we know that the church, being a building has absolutely nothing to do with the Greek word ekklesia which means a calling out, therefore it was wrongly translated leaving all church buildings worldwide as an illusion filled with mislead, and where Satan dwells.

Through faith, we know that the name of God and Jesus Christ are more manmade titles having nothing to do with whom they really are being Yehovah Elohim and Yeshua HaMashiach.

Through faith, we also know that through world division, pride, and all the ways which seem right to humans — very, very, few will agree with anything written or spoken differently from their own thoughts; and reason is because any not chosen and called out of this world through disassociation, know only their self.

100_31751 Samuel 2:8

Think of what I share like this; what if your life for a decade never brought you any happiness even though you believed, prayed, endured, and waited for anything better than the life you had?

How would you feel through years and years experiencing this world of Christianity showing zero love with compassion for others in need when it a commandment?

What could possibly be any more clear than these following words of scripture Christians totally ignore?

“I give you a new commandment: that you should love one another. Just as I have loved you, so you too should love one another. John 13:34 (AMPC)

“The person who has My commands and keeps them is the one who [really] loves Me; and whoever [really] loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I [too] will love him and will show (reveal, manifest) Myself to him. [I will let Myself be clearly seen by him and make Myself real to him.]  John 14:21 (AMPC)

“Anyone who hates (abominates, detests) his brother [in Christ] is [at heart] a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding ([a]persevering) within him. By this we come to know (progressively to recognize, to perceive, to understand) the [essential] love: that He laid down His [own] life for us; and we ought to lay [our] lives down for [those who are our] brothers [[b]in Him]. But if anyone has this world’s goods (resources for sustaining life) and sees his brother and fellow believer in need, yet closes his heart of compassion against him, how can the love of God live and remain in him? Little children, let us not love [merely] in theory or in speech but in deed and in truth (in practice and in sincerity). 1 John 3:15-18

“Teacher, which [a]kind of commandment is great and important (the principal kind) in the Law? [Some commandments are light—which are heavy?] And He replied to him, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind (intellect). This is the great (most important, principal) and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as [you do] yourself. These two commandments [b]sum up and upon them depend all the Law and the Prophets. Matthew 22:36-40

“But be doers of the Word [obey the message], and not merely listeners to it, betraying yourselves [into deception by reasoning contrary to the Truth]. For if anyone only listens to the Word without obeying it and being a doer of it, he is like a man who looks carefully at his [own] natural face in a mirror; For he thoughtfully observes himself, and then goes off and promptly forgets what he was like. But he who looks carefully into the faultless law, the [law] of liberty, and is faithful to it and perseveres in looking into it, being not a heedless listener who forgets but an active doer [who obeys], he shall be blessed in his doing (his life of obedience). James 1:22-25

Listen, my beloved brethren: Has not God chosen those who are poor in the eyes of the world to be rich in faith and in their position as believers and to inherit the kingdom which He has promised to those who love Him? If indeed you [really] fulfill the royal Law in accordance with the Scripture, You shall love your neighbor as [you love] yourself, you do well. So speak and so act as [people should] who are to be judged under the law of liberty [the moral instruction given by Christ, especially about love]. For to him who has shown no mercy the judgment [will be] merciless, but mercy [full of glad confidence] exults victoriously over judgment. What is the use (profit), my brethren, for anyone to profess to have faith if he has no [good] works [to show for it]? Can [such] faith save [his soul]? If a brother or sister is poorly clad and lacks food for each day, And one of you says to him, Good-bye! Keep [yourself] warm and well fed, without giving him the necessities for the body, what good does that do? So also faith, if it does not have works (deeds and actions of obedience to back it up), by itself is destitute of power (inoperative, dead). James 2:5, 8, 12-17

1 Samuel 2:8

The meaning of the verse just read has absolutely nothing to do with today’s worldly riches, but rather speaks of an earned position within His eternal government. Isaiah 9:6-7, Revelation 5:10, ect.

My wife and I have been without funds and have no food, so we pray as always and also ask Yehovah how much longer until we find just one genuine believer being as a doer of what you command rather than a hearer only, and continue our wait for our most simple needs.

The site below through compassionate crowdfunding at the time if this update [4/8/2017] gained 130 shares, yet no help that we really need. Why is that?

https://www.youcaring.com/jeffandmylenecallarman-789450

Because the god of this world only hates love, kindness, truth, compassion, empathy, and everything to do with righteousness; therefore being the misleading spirit of evil as the prince and power of the air, he injects selfishness and mislead into all minds which nullifies this world of Christianity from even knowing the creator they worship in words without deed, because Father Elohim [God] is love. Read again 1 John 3:17-18 while knowing there are many verses that accompany being a commandment. For any wanting deep spiritual truth, this read below offers much.

https://ttimesoftrouble.wordpress.com/2017/03/10/the-kingdom-of-satan-is-earth/

So our faith has become a decade of patience through knowing YHVH has been shaping and molding us for use in these end times according to His will; therefore through faith, no matter what life’s circumstance comes upon us — without choice we just accept our life as it is, and that is because those with faith through endurance and self-sacrifice of life’s basic needs, are those who which pleases our Father — therefore know their destiny.

Do you love our creator? How much? Enough to do be as sheep rather than the goats in Matthew 25:31-46? Ever wonder where and how the judgment will come upon all the goats worldwide?

Enough to be as sheep rather than the goats in Matthew 25:31-46? Ever wonder where and how the judgment will come upon all the goats worldwide?

Enough to bear fruits through obedience? Luke 6:43-46

Enough to not be cast into the coming fire of affliction? John 15:1-6

We have reached a point having no more rice, and that is what we have been eating daily as our main food for ten years — therefore some rice would be nice that costs $40 per 50 kg sack.

Our Actions Reveal Truth on Who We Are

008bible-verses-082

Our actions are the manifestation of what is on the inside of us, which means that our way of doing all things reveal what is true about us: what we believe, who we serve, and who we love.

If we say that we believe in something, our actions can contradict us to reveal what we truly believe. If we say that we love someone more than ourselves, our actions will reveal if it is true. What we do shows who we really serve, who we love the most, and what we really think.

Our Actions Reveal the Truth:
What We Truly Believe

James says, “So faith by itself, if it has no works, is dead. But someone will say, ‘You have faith and I have works.’ Show me your faith apart from your works, and I by my works will show you my faith.” (James 2:17-18; also see James 2:26)

In the context of Titus 1:16, Paul is speaking of false teachers when he says, “They profess to know God, but they deny him by their actions.” These people likely had themselves convinced that they did know God, but by their actions they denied him. Paul is claiming that their actions revealed the truth.

Paul was also someone who thought he was serving God when he initially persecuted Christians, but his actions were actually opposing God.

“[Paul] asked, ‘Who are you, Lord?’ The reply came, ‘I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting.'” (Acts 9:5) Jesus explains in John 16:2, “Indeed, an hour is coming when those who kill you will think that by doing so they are offering worship to God.”

These people will think they know God and are serving him, but in reality they are opposing God with their actions.

Realizing that our actions reveal the truth about what we truly believe is essential to understanding faith and repentance.

Jesus says, “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many deeds of power in your name?’ Then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; go away from me, you evildoers.'” (Matthew 7:21-23)

Jesus himself makes it clear that our actions reveal what we truly believe. Jesus claims that the only people who will be saved are those who obey God’s will. There are people who will say “Lord, Lord,” but their evil actions mark them as “evildoers” and reveal that Jesus is not their lord.

They may think they believe in Jesus Christ, but their actions reveal that they do not really believe in him or really know him.

Our Actions Reveal the Truth:
Who We Really Serve

According to Jesus, “No slave can serve two masters; for a slave will either hate the one and love the other, or be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and wealth.” (Luke 16:13; Matthew 6:24)

Jesus speaks specifically of God and wealth, but because the Foundation of All Sin is Selfishness, we are really either serving God or ourselves.

James explains that “No one, when tempted, should say, ‘I am being tempted by God’; for God cannot be tempted by evil and he himself tempts no one. But one is tempted by one’s own desire, being lured and enticed by it; then, when that desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin, and that sin, when it is fully grown, gives birth to death.” (James 1:13-15)

It is serving ourselves and being “tempted by one’s own desire” that causes us to sin and disobey God.

Paul explains in Romans 6:15-18 that we are either a slave to sin or slaves to righteousness:

“What then? Should we sin because we are not under law but under grace? By no means! Do you not know that if you present yourselves to anyone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin, which leads to death, or of obedience, which leads to righteousness? But thanks be to God that you, having once been slaves of sin, have become obedient from the heart to the form of teaching to which you were entrusted and that you, having been set free from sin, have become slaves of righteousness.”

Paul compares sin to righteousness, explaining that we “are slaves of the one whom you obey.” As Paul explains earlier in Romans 2:8, we are obeying either ourselves or God, “for those who are self-seeking and who obey not the truth but wickedness, there will be wrath and fury.”

John also makes it clear that the separation between the righteous and unrighteous is by what they do. Our actions reveal the truth about who we serve.

“Little children, let no one deceive you. Everyone who does what is right is righteous, just as he is righteous. Everyone who commits sin is a child of the devil…The children of God and the children of the devil are revealed in this way: all who do not do what is right are not from God, nor are those who do not love their brothers and sisters.” (1 John 3:7-10)

Jesus Christ modeled obeying God over ourselves, as Paul explains in Philippians 2:8, “he humbled himself and became obedient to the point of death— even death on a cross.”

When Jesus was about to be crucified, he is recorded as saying to the Father, “not what I want but what you want.” (Matthew 26:39) Jesus’ actions reveal the truth about who he served: God, not himself.

Our Actions Reveal the Truth:
Who We Truly Love

John explains in 1 John 5:3-4, “For the love of God is this, that we obey his commandments. And his commandments are not burdensome, for whatever is born of God conquers the world.”

If we fail to obey God’s commandments, then we reveal that we do not love God. If we love God above ourselves, then, of course, his commandments would not be burdensome, because we obey the one we love.

As Jesus says, “for a slave will either hate the one and love the other or be devoted to the one and despise the other.” (Luke 16:13; Matthew 6:24)

The two greatest commandments are to love God above all and to love our neighbor as ourselves (Matthew 22:37-40; Luke 10:27).

This is a commandment to change the hierarchy of our love: replacing loving ourselves first for loving God first, with ourselves and others as a tie for second.

If we sin, it reveals that we love ourselves more than God, since sin is a self-seeking act (James 1:13-15). If our sin is something that could hurt someone else (adultery, murder, stealing, etc.), then it also means that we love ourselves more than that person. Otherwise, if you loved that person more than yourself (or even the same), then you would not be able to commit that sin.

When God first gave his commandments in the Old Testament, it is explained, “You shall not act as we are acting here today, all of us according to our own desires…”(Deuteronomy 12:8)

Also written is, “… observe this entire commandment that I command you today, by loving the Lord your God and walking always in his ways…” (Deuteronomy 19:9)

Loving God first is what causes us to obey him because disobeying him happens when we love ourselves first. Sin (disobedience to God) is a self-seeking act (Romans 2:8; James 1:13-15).

Therefore, our actions reveal the truth about who we love: ourselves or God.

When Jesus speaks of salvation, he makes it clear that denying ourselves in favor of Jesus is absolutely necessary, “and whoever does not take up the cross and follow me is not worthy of me.” (Matthew 10:38)

“Then Jesus told his disciples, ‘If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.'” (Matthew 16:24) Jesus bluntly says that if we do not deny ourselves and love him first, then we are not worthy of him.

Whether or not we deny ourselves reveals whether or not we love Jesus first, because the idea of denying ourselves means that we are placing the ‘love of ourselves’ below our ‘love for Jesus Christ.’

John explains in 1 John 2:3-6, “Now by this we may be sure that we know him, if we obey his commandments. Whoever says, ‘I have come to know him,’ but does not obey his commandments, is a liar, and in such a person the truth does not exist; but whoever obeys his word, truly in this person the love of God has reached perfection. By this we may be sure that we are in him: whoever says, ‘I abide in him,’ ought to walk just as he walked.”

When John speaks of obeying God’s commandments, he clears up any confusion there might be by saying “whoever says, ‘I abide in him,’ ought to walk just as he walked.”

In such a person who lives as Jesus modeled for us by obeying God, “in this person the love of God has reached perfection.”

Returning to what John says in 1 John 5, he continues by saying, “And this is the victory that conquers the world, our faith. Who is it that conquers the world but the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?” (1 John 5:4-5)

Rephrasing what John says in 1 John 5:3-5: believing in Jesus Christ is the faith that gives victory because then we are born of God and able to obey his commandments, which is the love of God.

According to these verses, true faith is what empowers our obedience to God; just as loving God first empowers the same, making obedience or disobedience to God (our actions) the factor that reveals: what we truly believe, who we truly serve, and who we love first.

If we only sin occasionally, it means that we love God until it collides with our own strong desires. Essentially, we love God as long as it does not cause us any serious discomfort, displeasure, or inconvenience.

Truly loving God first means that our love for God trumps all our own selfish desires, like Jesus modeled for us, even “to the point of death— even death on a cross.” (Philippians 2:8)

Our Actions Reveal the Truth:
Faith, Obedience, and Love

Even though these three subjects of faith, obedience, and love are examined separately, in reality, we can see that these subjects intertwine in scripture. Authors that discuss love also discuss its connection to obedience and faith, while authors that discuss faith also discuss the connection between obedience and love.

Paul makes truth in Hebrews 4:12-13 so very clear, that all true believers should know without question or doubt, there is nothing about them ever hid from Yehovah.

More precise words come through Jeremiah 17:10, because they reveal that believers shall be rewarded according to their works – and not their words.

Additional strong truth can be found in Ecclesiastes 12:13-14, and this scripture requires no Bible scholar to comprehend.

When any Christian examines themselves through commanded obedience in Hebrews 5:9, and then reads “The one who obeys me is the one who loves me; and because he loves me, my Father will love him; and I will too, and I will reveal myself to him.” John 14:21, their answer on how they are seen from above shall come during their great affliction when help from who they claim to love is severely needed through His love and mercy. Psalms 33:17-21

Many of the scriptures quoted can be used to show that our actions reveal the truth about all three subjects: what we believe, who we serve, and who we love.

Our Actions Reveal the Truth:                                                                                                          What Sacrifice Has Been Made?                                                                

Matthew 25:31-46 clearly reveal judgment upon sheep with love for others, and goats of selfishness.

Proverbs chapter 1 holds a valuable end time message on obedience or disobedience, and when verses 26-27 are reached;

“So I will laugh ·when you are in trouble [L at your calamity]. I will make fun [ridicule you] when disaster strikes you, when ·disaster [dread] comes over you like a storm [tempest], when trouble strikes you like a whirlwind when ·pain [distress] and ·trouble [oppression] overwhelm you. – Just as all strong and valid end time scripture written for Christians – it has never been taught properly, or just ignored”. (EXB)

Additional warning for all goats of Christianity comes in these words. . .

“Whoever ·ignores [closes their ears to] the poor when they cry for help
will also cry for help [call out] and not be answered”. Proverbs 21:13

All 66 verses in Lamentations chapter 3 give clear destiny for all Christians who talk religious talk – but never walk their commanded walkthrough being prideful, greedy, and very disobedient. . .

“We have transgressed and rebelled,
You have not pardoned.

Even when I cry out and shout for help,
He shuts out my prayer.

You have covered Yourself with anger
And pursued us;
You have slain [without pity] and have not spared.

You have covered Yourself with a cloud
So that no prayer can pass through”. Lamentations 3:8, 43-44

Purpose of This Message:

____________________________________________________

The end of 2006, at 51 years of age, I left America on a one-way ticket to the Philippines with very little funds having no income of any kind; and that was my beginning through a decade of experiences on just how Yahovah wrongly called God views all Christianity. Lazarus at least hoped for crumbs to fall from the rich man’s table, but I lost even that long ago. Yet joyfully run the race set before me just as Paul; because this world of Christianity really knows not what they do, or how they will all be repaid through great suffering with the same measure they did for others in need. Hebrews 12, Luke 23:34, Luke 6:38

My wife and I have greatly needed help for the past ten years, any help at all will be strongly appreciated. Thank you.

PARABLE OF THE FIG TREE IS FOR END TIMES

This parable gives good understanding to these signs of the times, and when our Messiah Yeshua will return. Just read Matthew 24:4-14 and Revelation 6:1-8 while viewing this world of unstable kingdoms-nations on the rise against each other; and then world hunger, earthquakes, diseases, and many more world disasters bringing 31/2 years affliction with wrath followed by 31/2 years great tribulation; therefore the studies in this writing revealing the approximate time of Yeshua coming in the clouds are fully in line with what I have learned from Yehovah being my main teacher. Once world wars begin, figure 7 years from that point onward – thus watching the signs reveals the coming end of failed world kingdoms making 2024, 2025 very possible; however, this world of Christianity is in no way spiritually prepared to handle their own coming destiny being the worst times of trouble ever before on this planet earth – because shepherds worldwide have misled them all. Want untaught truth? My links at end reveal much.

me100_7908                                                                                                                         Isaiah 1:2

Yeshua spoke the parable of the fig tree just before his crucifixion.  It is found in all of the Synoptic Gospels:

MATTHEW 24:32 “Now learn this parable from the fig tree:  When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near.  33 So you also, when you see all these things, know that it is near — at the doors!  34 Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place.  35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will by no means pass away.” (NKJV)

MARK 13:28 “Now learn this parable from the fig tree:  When its branch has already become tender, and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near.  29 So you also, when you see these things happening, know that it is near — at the doors!  30 Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place.  31 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will by no means pass away.” (NKJV)

LUKE 21:29 Then he spoke to them a parable:  “Look at the fig tree, and all the trees.  30 When they are already budding, you see and know for yourselves that summer is now near.  31 So you also, when you see these things happening, know that the kingdom of God is near.  32 Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all things take place.  33 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will by no means pass away.”(NKJV)

The modern state of Israel was founded by those from the ancient House of Judah in 1948 CE.  After this momentous event, some Christian teachers began theorizing that this parable was actually a prophecy which revealed that Jesus would return within 40 years of the founding of Israel.  This was based on the assumption that the Bible teaches a generation is 40 years in length:

NUMBERS 32:13 “So the LORD’s anger was aroused against Israel, and He made them wander in the wilderness forty years, until all the generation that had done evil in the sight of the LORD was gone.” (NKJV)

PSALM 95:8 Do not harden your hearts as you did at Meribah, as you did that day at Massah in the desert, 9 where your fathers tested and tried Me, though they had seen what I did.  10 For forty years I was angry with that generation; I said, “They are a people whose hearts go astray, and they have not known My ways.”  11 So I declared on oath in My anger, “They shall never enter My rest.” (NIV)

Also cited in favor of this view was the 40-year period that elapsed between the crucifixion of the Messiah in 30 CE and the destruction of the Second Temple and Jerusalem by the Romans in 70 CE.

However, the return of the Messiah obviously did not occur by 1988 CE as had been speculated.  Therefore, some proponents of the theory revised their view.  Instead of the foundation of the state of Israel, they shifted the beginning point of their 40-year count to Israel’s recapture of east Jerusalem and the holy Temple Mount in the Six-Day War during 1967 CE.

But once again 40 years passed and Jesus did not return by 2007 CE.  After another target date had come and gone, some Christian teachers took the position that the parable was not a prophecy detailing the timing of the Messiah’s coming after all (II Pet. 3:4).  They began promoting the idea that the focus of the parable was NOT the fig tree, but rather the sign of the budding leaves, which is an indication of the change of seasons.

Therefore, in this revised view, the parable was not giving believers a time marker for the return of the Messiah.  Instead, it was simply an admonition to WATCH for the signs of the Messiah’s coming.  These teachers supported the revised position by citing the very next statement made by Yeshua after the fig tree parable was spoken:

MATTHEW 24:36 “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only.” (NKJV)

MARK 13:32 “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.  33 Take heed, watch and pray; for you do not know when the time is.” (NKJV)

Has the parable of the fig tree been proven NOT to be a prophecy because of the failed interpretations assigned to it in the past?  How do we understand what this parable is telling us?

There is a related story in the Gospels of Matthew and Mark that also incorporates a fig tree as the central focus:

MARK 11:12 Now the next day, when they had come out from Bethany, he was hungry.  13 And seeing from afar a fig tree having leaves, he went to see if perhaps he would find something on it.  When he came to it, he found nothing but leaves, for it was not the season for figs.  14 In response Jesus said to it, “Let no one eat fruit from you ever again.”  And his disciples heard it. (NKJV)

This event took place just before the Passover festival in 30 CE, around the beginning of April.  To understand the true meaning of this event, it is necessary to be familiar with the annual fruit cycle of the Holy Land fig tree:

Two crops are gathered; the first is ripe about June and grows from the midsummer shoots of the previous year, while the second, ripe about August, is produced from the new spring shoots.  By December all figs in the mountainous areas have shed their leaves, and new leaf buds appear only in March (cf. Mt. 24:32 par.), when the tiny figs appear simultaneously in the leaf axils.  The figs grow to about the size of a small cherry, and then the majority fall off . . . In April and May the fig leaves develop and the fruit reaches maturity about June . . . Frequently, ripe winter figs can be found, hidden by leaves, when the summer figs are growing in August and September. (p. 302, vol. 2, “Fig; Fig Tree,” The International Standard Bible Encyclopedia)

Fig trees in the Holy Land put on figs twice during the year, in early June and at the end of August.  Yeshua, having been raised in this area, would surely have known this.  Why then would he curse a fig tree in late March or early April for not having figs when Mark clearly states that it was NOT the time for edible figs to be found?  Is there more to this story than first meets the eye?

As with many things that Yeshua did during his ministry, this incident was intended to fulfill and explain prophecy.  Most Christian commentators rightly understand that this parable was a symbolic condemnation of the spiritually barren Jewish nation of Yeshua’s day (which was a reflection of the spiritually dead Jewish leadership).  But what remains generally unrecognized is that this event helps explain the meaning of the fig tree parable given shortly thereafter by Yeshua and explains why the Jews as a whole have not accepted him even to this day.

As can be seen in the book of Joel, the fig tree is symbolic of the INHABITED LAND of Israel:

JOEL 1:6 For a nation has come up against My land, strong, and without number; his teeth are the teeth of a lion, and he has the fangs of a fierce lion.  7 He has laid waste My vine, and ruined My fig tree; he has stripped it bare and thrown it away; its branches are made white.(NKJV)

The Jews in the Holy Land at the time of Yeshua’s ministry were desperate to once again be in control of their own destiny instead of being a vassal state of a pagan empire.  Because of the time period spelled out in Daniel’s prophecy of the “70 weeks” (Dan. 9:24-27), they were expecting their prophesied Messiah to arise at that time and throw off the chains of Roman rule.

When Yeshua arrived on the scene in the fall of 26 CE performing great miracles and preaching about the coming kingdom of God, many Jews began to believe that he might be the messianic King that they were awaiting.  By the time he arrived in Jerusalem in 30 CE just before the spring Feast of Passover, the messianic expectations of the Jews had reached a fever pitch.  He was welcomed into the city by the multitudes and effectively acknowledged as the long-awaited Messiah:

MATTHEW 21:7 They brought the donkey and the colt, laid their clothes on them, and set him on them [cf. Zec. 9:9].  8 And a very great multitude spread their clothes on the road; others cut down branches from the trees and spread them on the road.  9 Then the multitudes who went before and those who followed cried out, saying:  “Hosanna to the Son of David!  ‘Blessed is he who comes in the name of the LORD!‘  Hosanna in the highest!”  10 And when he had come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, “Who is this?”  11 So the multitudes said, “This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth of Galilee.” (NKJV)

The word “hosanna” in the above passage is the Greek transliteration of the Hebrew hoshi’ah, which literally means “deliver us” or “save us.”  This cry of the Jews upon Yeshua’s entry into Jerusalem is a paraphrase of Psalm 118:

PSALM 118:25 Save [hoshi’ah] now, I pray, O LORD; O LORD, I pray, send now prosperity.  26 Blessed is he who comes in the name of the LORD!  We have blessed you from the house of the LORD. (NKJV)

By their use of the title “Son of David,” the multitude of Jews who welcomed Yeshua into Jerusalem on the back of the donkey colt showed their acceptance of him as the prophesied Messiah.  This was the primary reason why the duplicitous Jewish religious leaders felt it necessary to take him at night before the Feast began, out of sight of the majority of the Jews gathered in Jerusalem for Passover (Matt. 26:5; Mark 14:2).

The morning after his triumphal entry was when Yeshua sought fruit from the out-of-season fig tree and cursed it for having none (Matt. 21:17-19; Mark 11:12-14).  He did not curse the fig tree because he truly expected to find fruit on it.  Rather, he used the barren fig tree to prophesy about the spiritual fate of the Jews and the physical fate of the Holy Land.

There is a common misconception among many that the Jews chose of their own free will to reject Yeshua as the Messiah.  Yet the New Testament clearly states that God blinded the majority of Jews and hardened their hearts against Yeshua:

JOHN 12:37 But although he had done so many signs before them, they did not believe in him, 38 that the word of Isaiah the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spoke:  “Lord, who has believed our report?  And to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed?”  39 Therefore they could not believe, because Isaiah said again:  40 “He has blinded their eyes and hardened their hearts, lest they should see with their eyes, lest they should understand with their hearts and turn, so that I should heal them.” (NKJV)

ROMANS 11:7 What then?  Israel has not obtained what it seeks; but the elect have obtained it, and the rest were blinded.  8 Just as it is written:  “God has given them a spirit of stupor, eyes that they should not see and ears that they should not hear, to this very day.” (NKJV)

It was not the appointed time for the fig tree Yeshua encountered to yield its fruit.  In like manner, it was also not the time for the Jews to recognize their Messiah.  Yeshua symbolized this prophesied blinding by God with his curse of the fig tree.

In our English translations, it appears that the fig tree was cursed to NEVER again bring forth fruit:

MATTHEW 21:19 Spotting a fig tree by the road, he went up to it but found nothing on it except leaves.  So he said to it, “May you never again [eis ton aiona] bear fruit!” and immediately the fig tree dried up. (CJB)

MARK 11:14 In response Jesus said to it, “Let no one eat fruit from you ever again [eis ton aiona].”  And his disciples heard it. (NKJV)

Yet a closer examination of the Greek phrase eis ton aiona shows that the English translations obscure what Yeshua really said.  The preposition eis is often used regarding time to mean “to” or “until.”  The article ton simply means “the.”  The noun aiona is a form ofaion (transliterated into English as “eon”); this word means “a segment of time,” or an “age.”  Therefore, the phrase eis ton aiona literally means “until the age”:

MARK 11:14 In response Yeshua said to it, “Let no one eat fruit from you until the age [eis ton aiona].”  And his disciples heard it. (literal)

Until what “age” was Yeshua symbolically cursing the Jews to unfruitfulness?  Undoubtedly he was speaking of the age which most Jews at that time were imminently expecting:  the age of the Jewish Messiah’s rule over the entire world from Jerusalem.  The fig tree incident was designed to show that the Jews would not produce spiritual fruit until the Messiah comes to usher in the kingdom of God upon the earth.

This messianic age was prophesied by many of the Old Testament prophets.  The writings of Zechariah include numerous revelations about the Messiah during both his first and second comings.  The following prophecy shows that the divine blindness will be lifted and the Jews will recognize their Messiah AFTER he saves them and Jerusalem from an attack by the nations:

ZECHARIAH 12:8 “In that day the LORD will defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; the one who is feeble among them in that day shall be like David, and the house of David shall be like God, like the Angel of the LORD before them.  9 It shall be in that day that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.  10 And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on me whom they pierced.  Yes, they will mourn for him as one mourns for his only son, and grieve for him as one grieves for a firstborn.  11 In that day there shall be a great mourning in Jerusalem . . . ” (NKJV)

The Messiah’s revelation to the Jews will come AFTER he has saved Jerusalem from the attack of Gog (i.e., the Antichrist) and his allies (Eze. 38-39).  When they fully realize that the one they have rejected for 2,000 years is in fact the Messiah, there will be a great mourning among the Jews in Jerusalem and Judah over Yeshua.

The parable of the fig tree was designed to show us WHEN these prophesied events will take place.  Since the fig tree cursed by Yeshua represented the Jews in the Holy Land, it stands to reason that the parable of the fig tree given the very next day would also have something to do with the Jews and the Holy Land.  And indeed it does!

The Jewish people were permanently dispersed from Judea by the Romans after their second revolt (132-135 CE), and a distinct Jewish nation ceased to exist.  The Holy Land became as a denuded fig tree during winter, devoid of leaves and fruit (i.e., its people).  Yet this symbolic fig tree began to bud out once again when the modern nation of Israel was revived in 1948 CE.

As we saw earlier with the description of the annual fruit cycle of the fig tree, when the tree begins to put forth leaves, tiny figs appear at the same time in the leaf axils.  This occurs at the beginning of spring, in late March.  The figs are not ready to harvest until early June, about 70 to 80 days later.  This fact is not devoid of meaning, for it confirms the time span of the generation mentioned by Yeshua.

The Scriptures show conclusively that God often employs the “day for a year” principle:

NUMBERS 14:34 “According to the number of the days in which you spied out the land, forty days, for each day you shall bear your guilt one year, namely forty years, and you shall know My rejection.” (NKJV)

EZEKIEL 4:4 “Then lie on your left side and put the sin of the house of Israel upon yourself.  You are to bear their sin for the number of days you lie on your side.  5 I have assigned you the same number of days as the years of their sin.  So for 390 days you will bear the sin of the house of Israel.  6 After you have finished this, lie down again, this time on your right side, and bear the sin of the house of Judah.  I have assigned you 40 days, a day for each year.”(NIV)

If we apply this principle to the fruit cycle of the Holy Land fig tree, we get a corresponding time period of 70 to 80 years.  If the parable of the fig tree budding out represents the land of Israel once again becoming home to a Jewish state, then we have 70 to 80 years before the fruit of this entity will be ripe.  Is it possible that the Messiah intended for us to understand that the culmination of God’s plan would take 70 to 80 years from the reestablishment of modern Israel until the return of the Messiah and his acceptance by the Jews in the Holy Land?

Not only is it possible, but Scripture shows it is very likely that this meaning is the intended one.  As we discussed earlier, initial efforts to discern a time frame from the fig tree parable failed due to the use of a 40-year generation.  But what if that span of time wasn’t the one intended by Yeshua?  Is there another time frame given in the Bible for the length of a generation?  There most certainly is!

PSALM 90:10 The days of our life are seventy years, or perhaps eighty, if we are strong; even then their span is only toil and trouble; they are soon gone, and we fly away. (NRSV)

Using a 70-80 year generation, we can see that the specified time frame for the fig tree to produce fruit is in the range of 2016/2017 CE to 2026/2027 CE.  Interestingly, the latter date is exactly 2,000 years from the time that Yeshua the Messiah first began his earthly ministry.

After speaking the parable of the fig tree, Yeshua stated:  “Truly I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place.”  Based on the Psalm 90:10 definition of a generation, we should be looking for the return of Messiah Yeshua to defeat the Antichrist by 2027 CE, at the latest.  Accompanying this event, Israel, the symbolic fig tree, will begin to bear spiritual fruit after their acceptance of King Yeshua the Messiah.

However, this event could come even sooner, because we are told that Yeshua must cut the time short at the end of this age in order to save some flesh alive (Matt. 24:22; Mark 13:20).  There is an element of uncertainty in the dating the Yeshua provided (Matt. 24:36; Mark 13:32-33), but we are given a vital clue to the timing, if we understand and accept it.  Come soon, Lord Yeshua!
