Trend Update: Torah/King David/Coming Messiah, April 2016

Posted in Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on April 1, 2016 by paulthepoke

Hosea 3:4-5 For the children of Israel shall dwell many days without king or prince, without sacrifice or pillar, without ephod or household gods. Afterward the children of Israel shall return and seek the Lord their God, and David their king, and they shall come in fear to the Lord and to his goodness in the latter days.

This is the history of Israel since the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. In 70 AD they were dispersed out of the land to all the nations. In the early 20th century the Jewish people returned to the Promised Land. In 1948, Israel became a nation again. Now, in the early 21st century we even hear of Jews who believe in Jesus Christ as their Messiah. And that number is growing.

In 2016, Rabbi Yosef Berger finished writing the Torah on a scroll. The ceremony was on the seventh day of the Hebrew month Adar (February 15th on a Gregorian calendar). This day is believed to be both the birthday and the death of Moses.

Rabbi Berger is one of several rabbis in charge of King David’s tomb in Jerusalem’s Old City. David’s tomb is located on Mount Zion. The scroll is to be kept at David’s tomb. It is the rabbi’s dream to present the scroll to the Messiah upon his arrival. The rabbi believes this will help fulfill the requirements to bring about the coming of the Messiah.

The shofar or ram’s horn was blown to consecrate the occasion.

According to Yalkut Shimoni and his teachings from the 13th century, the Messiah will not return until three things are done…“No signs of redemption will be shown to Israel until they seek these three things – the kingdom of heaven, the dynasty of King David, and the building of the Temple.”

It is believed that, “Writing a scroll housed on Mount Zion, where King David is interred, and adjacent to the Temple Mount, will accomplish all three goals in one action,” the rabbi explained.

Actually, Jesus Himself makes a couple of statements regarding conditions of His return.

Matthew 23:39 “For I tell you, you will not see me again, until you say, ‘Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.’”

Matthew 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.

The Shema prayer was recited at the end of the ceremony.

Deuteronomy 6:4-5 “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.”

Rabbi Berger’s next project…a book of Psalms written by King David.

Isaiah 11:1 Jesus, The Branch

Posted in Isaiah, Prophecy with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 29, 2013 by paulthepoke

Isaiah 11:1 Then a shoot will spring from the stem of Jesse, and a branch from his roots will bear fruit.

The “shoot” or “branch” that will bear fruit is Jesus. His story is the central theme of the Bible. The first mention of His coming and necessity of His arrival is told in the Garden of Eden. The context is the fall of mankind and the choice of sin. God is talking to Satan in Genesis 3:15 “From now on, you and the woman will be enemies, and your offspring and her offspring will be enemies. He will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.” We know this person is going be a male and He will be a human. He is the offspring of the woman.

As the narrative moves forward, we learn the Savior will come from the tribe of Judah of nation Israel. He will be a king. The scepter or sword indicates His military power. Multiple sources indicate Shiloh is a Hebrew word that has an uncertain meaning. Some take it to mean “tranquility” or “secure”. He will be obeyed. Genesis 49:10 “The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor the ruler’s staff from between his feet, until Shiloh comes, and to him shall be the obedience of the peoples.

We further learn He will come from a little town in Israel, Bethlehem. Jesus was born in Bethlehem. He is eternal. Micah 5:2 “But as for you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, too little to be among the clans of Judah, from you One will go forth for Me to be ruler in Israel. His goings forth are from long ago, from the days of eternity.”

Jesse is David’s father. Other prophets verify He is to come from the line of David. Jeremiah 30:9 But they shall serve the LORD their God and David their king, whom I will raise up for them.

The people of Israel, the Jews will be returning to their land. We learn He will come in “the last days”. Note, “the last days” are equated with the Jews returning to the their home land of Israel. By definition, we are in “the last days” as of December 2013. They have yet to seek their king. Hosea 3:5 Afterward the sons of Israel will return and seek the LORD their God and David their king; and they will come trembling to the LORD and to His goodness in the last days.

The Apostle Luke verifies Jesus is God’s promised Savior in Acts 13:23 “From the descendants of this man, according to promise, God has brought to Israel a Savior, Jesus…

Witnesses in the throne room of Heaven, in the presence of the Trinity, verify Jesus is of the tribe of Judah and of the family tree of David. Revelation 5:5 and one of the elders said to me, “Stop weeping; behold, the Lion that is from the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has overcome so as to open the book and its seven seals.”

Jesus Himself confirms He is the One. Revelation 22:16 “I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things for the churches. I am the root and the descendant of David, the bright morning star.”
