God’s joint heirs are kings and priests of God in Christ Jesus. There is neither Jew nor Greek, neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; you are ALL ONE IN MESSIAH YESHUA. In MESSIAH you are Abraham’s seed heirs according to promise in Galatians 3:27–29. Today know Jesus better by READING BIBLE to STUDY LIKE BEREANS not just do what so called fake control freak cult pastors order you to do to manipulate your life. Messiah Jesus is coming to decide your reward based on if you are HIS SHEEP. Not what the fake prophet misquoted in Bible designed to lie to you because you lack knowledge. God says MY PEOPLE are destroyed for lack of knowledge of Bible. God says Study to show yourself APPROVED TO GOD not show off Bible verses you memorized. But APPLY the Bible to each need you have, read the specific TEXT daily to meet your need.Each one faces God alone on judgement day so remember God will not ask about what the pastor told you. God demands account of your PERSONAL LIFE not the total social media number of followers, bank accounts, mansions, private jets, size of your family, your status, class, colour or race. Each person must share Gospel to DIRECT PEOPLE TO GOD IN CHRIST. The Church you attend or the denomination is IRRELEVANT TO GOD. Letter to seven Churches in Bible warns Churches. Israel and Jewish people are ONE IN CHRIST JESUS to fulfill all God’s feasts, prophecies covenant promises. Isaiah 27:6 says, God will cause them that come of Jacob to take root Israel shall blossom and bud to fill the face of the world with fruit. The people of Israel return from parts of the world their ancestors dispersed take root. The land is blessed and people blessed in the world. Israel’s desert desolate is a major exporter of food to the world. The crops are major export by companies in Israel Isaiah predicted. Isaiah predicted in the Word of God over 2,600 years ago fruit of the land blessing Earth with physical food exported and fruits of God’s Word confirms by Holy Spirit in Christ Jesus. Zechariah says all nations on earth will come yearly to Israel to celebrate Feast of Tabernacles to worship LORD of Hosts. Zechariah 14:16. Isaiah points to road connecting Egypt to Assyria and through this area access road is being built called King’s Highway. Building a super highways links them with all the surrounding nations. These prophesies of Isaiah and Zechariah prepares way in advance in time for Messiah’s rule from His Throne in Israel. Jesus Rules whole Earth and all people will know God in the millennial kingdom in Israel after rapture and His second coming on earth after Armageddon. The land is prepared today to fulfil prophecy of Messiah Jesus as KING of Kings and Lord of lords. And above all countless multitudes of people of all nations, tribes, languages, colours, BELONGS TOGETHER IN HEAVEN AND LATER DWELL ON EARTH WITH GOD. God is not a respecter of persons to put any person above others by class, race, colour, wealth or status. Death is their leveller making all equal before God. No man is bigger or stronger than Jehovah God no matter how powerful they may feel in own eyes to inflate their ego.
Moses told God “If you do not go with us we will not go without you” in Exodus 33:15. Moses needed God’s help to deal with challenges facing Israel. Almighty God’s presence empowers HIS children to live for God. Moses knew that God’s presence in his life is useful to enable him to achieve good success. Moses told God face to face boldly, “If you do not go with me I will not go” in Exodus 33:15. It is Moses saying, “LORD if you are not in it we will not make it so not take single step unless assured of your presence.” Moses knows power of God’s presence sets Israel apart from all other nations. God’s Presence sets apart God believers because God Emmanuel with us leads us, guides us, works HIS will through us. His Presence drives out fear, confusion. Moses’ attitude was, “We function better if guided or governed by God in battle to survive and defeat enemies. With God’s presence in our midst means none can destroy us with God we are strong and saved because God is strength and our salvation. Let all the nations put trust in their mighty armies, iron chariots, their skilled soldiers. Israel TRUSTS manifest Presence of God to save them in victory.God answered Moses’ bold statement so “My presence will go with you and I will give you rest” in Exodus 33:14. So “Rest” means “peaceful confidence.” God was saying, “No matter the battles or trials you face you will always find the quiet confidence to rest in God to be steadfast and fearless.” God’s presence and HIS GLORY builds Israel’s confidence in the wilderness by HIS cloud by day and fire at night. Cloud reassures of the manifest Presence of God’s promise with them. The tabernacle at night is guided by pillar of fire from God that confirms Presence of God. The cloud of pillar and fire moves and Israel moved, when it stops they stop moving. People of God led directly by God never had to try to figure out direction or the future. They put all confidence in visible cloud of the LORD’S Presence in lifework and HIS divine miracles around. And God’s presence leads to revelation of Christ’s Glory as “God’s Divine Angel” to Israel to send His message of the Gospel to all. Moses wants God’s continuous presence manifested of the LORD “to know God” more in Exodus 33:13. God told Moses “My presence will go with you and I will give you rest” in Exodus 33:14. Moses is leading stiff necked people complaining, ungrateful, unthankful and Moses feels overwhelmed at times. So God’s visible presence encourages Moses to know for sure God’s promise of peace rest is real. Assurance of God’s presence reinforces hope in Moses. He wants more of God’s Presence in addition to the cloud pillar and fire sai, “Please Lord show me your GLORY in 33:18. God shows Moses HIS GLORY by revealing HIS nature passed by and Moses said, The LORD, the LORD God, merciful, gracious, longsuffering, abundant in goodness and truth keeps mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin” in Exodus 34:6–7. God’s GLORY is revelation of HIS goodness, mercy, love and compassion.Moses needs God’s Presence to meet Israel in tabernacle sanctified by God’s GLORY in Exodus 29:43. The “sanctified” “made clean people of God to worship and meet in God’s Presence. In Presence of God is revealed GLORY that lifts you above all circumstances of life.” Moses trusts in God’s Word to send Jesus as the helper of Israel. Christ’s Glory provides power for our defense in Isaiah 4:5. His glory keep us heavenly minded in worst hours of life. Moses in God’s Presence is refreshed and renewed in HIS GLORY. It is revealed in Moses’ face shining from Presence of God. Full revelation of God’s love, grace, mercy, kindness imparted is in Moses more equipped to lead Israel. It is looking upon God again to reassure Moses God will see him through all trial he faced. The eyes of the LORD runs to and fro whole earth to show HIMSELF strong on behalf of all whose heart is perfect towards HIM in 2 Chronicles 16 : 9. In these perilous times the presence and assurance of Jesus keeps anguish and fear at bay. God’s nearness and HIS closeness takes away all anxiety, fears and cares hiding in the secret place of the Most High God in Psalm 1:1. Prayer quietly to worship, thank, commit all pain, stress and family cares to God.God’s condition to HIS Presence in life is trusting God to work all things together for our good in our interest. When it seems all is lost, God steps in for Israel even if God punished them redeems for HIS GLORY and HIS HOLY Name sake. A case in point is King Asa’s God’s people in miraculous victory over an Ethiopian million army. Asa said its God Presence that scattered enemy: “Asa cried, LORD help us they have more with them, we have no power. Help us! We rest in you and in your name against multitudes. So the LORD smote the Ethiopians before Asa” in 2 Chronicles 14:11–12. Asa led his triumphant army back to Jerusalem, the prophet Azariah met him at the city gate with message: “Hear me, Asa, The LORD is with you as you are with HIM. If you seek HIM, HE will find you but if you forsake HIM, HE will forsake you. Israel was without God in slavery but when in their trouble they turned to the LORD God of Israel. God heard their cries in Egypt so sent Moses and Aaron to Pharaoh to deliver them in Exodus 3 : 9. The cry of the Israelites has reached ME. I have seen how they are treated in Egypt in Exodus 2:23-3:22. God Heard Israel’s groaning during 439 years of the cruelty of kings of Egypt. God’s answer to their bondage when they cried was because their cry came up unto God in heaven. Many are crying for years still wondering if God cares about them and this is the reason to hold on by faith in Christ all is well in Jesus Name. God is keenly interested and watching from heaven and will intervene in HIS OWN TIME. Moses and Elijah will come again to deliver people from their bondage on earth. Freewill choice will be given to seek God’s face and join His Kingdom in Christ. This is not fable fairy tell as some mock but is real living history on earth.
God’s people safely crossed the Red Sea as God told Moses to raise his stick up so the sea parted to walk on dry ground. In Exodus 12:29 at midnight Israel left Egypt and in Exodus 14:27 in morning appeared at Red Sea. Egyptians chased them but in six hours the Jews entered Red Sea to safely pass to other shore.Pharaoh and his army drowned in Red Sea after the Exodus, changed his mind because of loss of a vital Israelite work force. Pursued Israel to Red Sea after he watched Moses and Israel cross Red Sea in Exodus 14:28 copied Israel in red sea.Psalm 136:15, God “overthrew Pharaoh and his army in the Red Sea.” God told Moses to lift up his staff to miraculously part red sea by God’s power authority. It is not by might not by power but by the Spirit of the LORD Jehovah. The people without understanding of Spiritual things of God try to copy miracle of God imitating entered pathway of Red Sea. Things of God are spiritually discerned God overthrew Pharaoh and his army.Rameses drown in Red Sea after Moses split sea using God’s power. Moses stops Red Sea after they safely millions cross. Jews prepared for Exodus with blessing of God in Passover. After the stubborn resistance caused plagues, death still Egypt wanted control of enslaved Jews. But Pharaoh drowned in the Red Sea with his army so did not survive. Crossing the Red Sea was God initiated in bible narrative of Exodus. Pharaoh’s army engulfed by the Red Sea in Exodus 15:4 Pharaoh’s chariots army thrown in the sea despite finest chariots of gold and a strong army. Pharaoh’s chariots or army could not stand against Elohim God’s powerful heavenly hosts. God uses HIS supernatural miracles to defend Israel. Larger armies even better equipped by human standards totally annihilated by Elohim in Bible. GOD’S PEOPLE, GOD’S PLANS ON EARTH for Israel continues until God comes back to dwell on earth. God proves that those fighting Israel FIGHT GOD JEHOVAH NISSI THE MIGHTY ONE IN BATTLE.Exodus 12:31 says Pharaoh called Moses and Aaron at night and said, “Get up, go away from my people you and people of Israel. Go and worship the LORD as you said. 32 Take your flocks your cattle and go. And pray good will come to me also.” 33 Egyptians tried to make people hurry out of the land for fear they, will all die from more punishment from God. 34 So people took dough without yeast, tied pots in their clothes on their shoulders. 35 People of Israel did what Moses said, asked Egyptians silver, gold and clothes 36 The LORD gave people favour in the eyes of the Egyptians. Egyptians gave all they asked for took best things of Egypt.Exodus 37 The people of Israel traveled from Rameses to Succoth about 600,000 men on foot, women and children. 38 Groups of people went with them with many flocks cattle. 39 They made dough brought out of Egypt to make loaves of bread. 40 The people of Israel lived in Egypt 430 years. 41 At the end of the 430 years on same day all the LORD’S people left Egypt at night. 42 The LORD brought them out of Egypt so this night is for the LORD to be remembered by all people of Israel forevermore. God made a way where there was no way to save Israel. Some put confidence in chariots and in horses but Israel’s confidence is in God to fight for them because the battle is the LORD’S.
Isaiah texts found in the Qumran caves in Israel talk about Jesus blessings in the last days. Messiah Jesus will establish His rule over Jerusalem as center of all world government for Jews and Gentiles in Isaiah 2:2–4, 11:10, 42:1. In the last days mountain of the LORD’s Temple will be established as highest of all mountains. Exalted above hills, and all nations will stream to there. The law will go out from Zion word of LORD from Jerusalem in Isaiah 2:2–3. Israel in endtimes of GREAT TRIBULATION and great distress in Matthew 24:16-21. After 62 weeks Messiah cut off by the people of the prince who destroyed city and the sanctuary. Isaiah 14:1 says God will fully restore Israel with Gentiles grafted in and their Covenant land restored.They make covenant with many for one week but in middle of week puts end to sacrifice and offering. The abomination sacrilege destroy but God’s annihilation poured on one who destroys’” in Daniel 9:26,27. GREAT TRIBULATION prophecy of Daniel, Jesus and John in Revelations are days of great testing, trial hardships. God sends Elijah, Moses and 144,000 to evangelise in GREAT TRIBULATION so countless multitudes will be saved. But it is such desperate times, people will go into caves, rocks holes on earth because of the fear of God’s wrath. The earth is shaken by earthquakes, storms, tsunami fires, volcanoes floods etc. That DAY will cast away idols and go in clefts of rocks and crevices because of the fear of God rising to shake earth in Isaiah 2: 19-21.In time of GREAT TRIBULATION as Jesus foretold the world will face adversities in Matthew 24:25 “There will be signs in the sun, moon, stars on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity. The sea and waves roaring; 26 men’s hearts failing them from fear and expectation of things coming on earth for powers of heavens will be shaken. 27 They will see the Son of Man coming in CLOUD with POWER and GREAT GLORY. 28 When these things happen, look up lift up your heads your redemption is near, says Luke 21:25-28. God’s SOVEREIGN plan brings justice to end evil on earth to stop the persecution hatred of Jews and the Gentiles grafted in. People will try to escape God’s wrath so beg to die unable to do so, “and say to mountains, “Cover us to hills “Fall on us in Hosea 10:8. Kings of earth, great men, nobles, rich, mighty, slave, free, hides in caves, rocks, mountain from the FACE of ONE seated on THRONE from Wrath of Lamb Jesus on GREAT DAY of WRATH in confirms the Bible in Revelation 6:15-17.That DAY people seek death don’t find it death flees from them in Revelation 9:6. Isaiah prophecy on God’s WRATH, Jesus Jeremiah, prophets true. Jesus says, This happens but not yet end in Matthew 24 : 6. GREAT TRIBULATION to happen since beginning of world not happen again in Matthew 24:21. In GREAT TRIBULATION of those DAYS sun is darkened, moon not give light, stars fall from heaven and powers of heavens will be shaken by God in destructions. Then Sign of Son of Man will appear in heaven as all tribes on earth will mourn and SEE the Son of Man coming in cloud of heaven in POWER and GREAT GLORY. God will send His angels with the great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other in Matthew 24:29-31. The great DAY of God coming is a DAY of wrath, troubles and distress, devastating storm, desolation, gloom, clouds thick darkness and alarm against fortified cities and high towers. Isaiah 53:4-5 prophesied “Surely Jesus bore our griefs and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem Him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. 5 He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him. And with His stripes we are healed. Christ Jesus came to save headland deliver all who accept Him. But Time of distress for mankind oblivious to sin against God their blood poured out like dust and flesh like dung. Their silver or gold unable to save on the DAY of God’s WRATH on earth in Zephaniah 1:14-18. God’s believers don’t be afraid on a DAY for all those who reject Jesus’ salvation. Time will be up if they don’t repent and and seek God for Mercy and forgiveness and salvation in Christ. Jesus Reigns on earth from Mount Zion headquarters in Israel. So saints, kings, queens in God’s Eternal Kingdom rule, Second Coming physically in Jerusalem millennial ruleGod says PRAY for the PEACE of Jerusalem in Psalm 122:6-9: “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: ‘May those who love you be secure. May there be peace within your walls and security within your citadels.’ For the sake of my brothers and friends, I will say, ‘Peace be within you.’ For the sake of the house of the LORD our God, I will seek your prosperity.” Praying for peace and good to come to God’s HOLY CITY also benefits those who PRAY. God promised blessings on those who bless Israel and curses on those who curse Israel Genesis 12:3. Jerusalem is center of God’s Kingdom to Jews first and to all Gentiles who follow Jesus. Pray for her peace, security and God’s intervention.

Tomb was subject to a restoration project in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem’s Old City. Fredrik Hiebert of National Geographic was part of the team and explained: “Tomb destroyed many times by fire, earthquakes and invasions over the centuries. It is a fake tomb created by the high priests to save face by embarrassment of resurrection of Jesus Christ. Paid soldiers to deceive people Jesus did not rise from death in Matthew 28:11-15. A violent earthquake and angel rolling stone from Jesus’ tomb guarded by governor’s soldiers shocked by fear collapsed to ground in Matthew 28:2-4. The angel told women at tomb Jesus had risen from death sent to tell His disciples. Guards at tomb went to tell chief priests what happened. 12 The chief priests and elders gave soldiers a large sum of money, 13 “Told to say, ‘His disciples came at night to steal body as while asleep.’ 14 If governor hears truth you will be in trouble.” 15 The soldiers took money did as instructed. This story known among Jews to this day Matthew wrote rumour in his gospel. If disciples stole Jesus body grave robbing is serious offence of death sentence? How did the guards asleep SEE who rolled the huge stone of tomb to lift Jesus? Why did they get away with not guarding Jesus’ body of death penalty? Guards said, disciples took Jesus body why did the authorities not deal with them to put them on trial?
Apostles were persecuted so put on trial for preaching Jesus is alive if they knew Jesus was not raised? The TRUTH is the stone rolled by angels Jesus came from tomb ALIVE by VICTORY over death. Chief priests tried to cover up truth with a lie for they did not believe Jesus arose from death. They hate Jesus seen radical who could upset social order in city of Jerusalem and followers threat to them. They did not believe in resurrection and chief priests felt guards of tomb lied and story will bring more people to Jesus to replace them as expected King of Jews. Its fake “Tomb” not used by Jesus so real tomb used is empty and in Jerusalem.
