Having just returned from visiting Israel, with fifteen of my favorite believers, I wanted to share a little of what God showed me. While in Jerusalem, I kept hearing the words Maranatha and Baruch haba in the spirit. As I pondered on these words, revelation came by the spirit, saying this was a double invitation! The remnant of TRUE believers in every nation will cry out Maranatha! Revelation 22:20 "even so, come[maranatha], Lord Jesus!" and the restored Jewish believers in Yeshua will cry out Barach haba! Matthew 23:39 " You shall see me no more till you say 'blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord[Barach haba b'shem adoniai]!" At this double invitation Yeshua WILL return! Just as there was negative cooperation between Jewish religious leaders and Roman leaders to crucify Yeshua, so there will be positive cooperation between Jewish and gentile believers to invite Yeshua back. Jesus said we should know how to "discern the signs of the times"(Matthew 16:3). The fact that Israel has become a nation and that Jewish people are believing in Yeshua is a SIGN that we are close to the Second Coming. Matthew 24:32 reads "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." The fig tree here is a symbol of the nation of Israel. the summer is the end of the age. the word "summer" in Hebrew is the same root as the word for "end." The leaves are the beginning of revival in the land and they are beginning to blossom. This is a sign to show us the time of the kingdom is at hand...Here...Now...TODAY. Only Believe.
IN WHOM WE HAVE REDEMPTION THROUGH HIS BLOOD, EVEN THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS. COLOSSIANS 1:14... Did you know that the blood of a baby in the womb never comes in contact with the mother and that it is contributed by the male seed, not by the female egg? This was a divine plan of God when He designed men & women. God knew He would need to send a Savior into the world to redeem them!!! We all need a SAVIOR and only the blood of Jesus can cleanse us and make us white as snow!!! Redeem means to pay a price to ransom someone. Our redemption could only be bought with the perfect, pure blood of Jesus. The blood of Jesus came from the Holy Spirit when He overshadowed Mary, therefore the blood of Jesus was completely pure. His blood was the only blood that could pay for our sins because it came directly from God and was never contaminated with sin. It was the perfect payment and sacrifice for our forgiveness!!!The blood of Christ is still cleansing and washing us today as much as it did two t
