Rescued-The End

First, apologies for not posting in a while.  I want to try to draw this series to a close.  In fact I never meant for it to be a series at all.  I’m sure I will write about these things again in the future mostly because I believe I actually have a future and am no longer waiting to be rescued.  I want to turn our attention now to Hebrews.  Hebrews for me is key to understanding the churches error where “end time” theology is concerned and so incredible in its revelation of the understanding of the New Covenant and Jesus as the only remaining priest after the order of Melchizedek.  But that is a blog for another day.  Let’s start by examining the first two verses of Hebrews 1.  

God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,

Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;

At this point in the blog I should be able to simply say well there you have it.  We are not living in the last days.  But due to the erroneous preaching of most churches, especially those of the Pentecostal and Evangelical variety, it is necessary that I continue this blog.  So, here we go.  Verse 1 “God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,”  This is pretty simple and straight forward.  God has in the past talked at different times and in different ways to the fathers (patriarch’s and key figures) by what prophets said. 

Ok, so it’s not quite that simple.  Here are my observations.  First Hebrews was not written to you.  It was written for you to receive something but it was not written to you.  Next, the prophets were talking to the fathers and not to you.  That seems so obvious to me but it does not appear to be that obvious to the doom and gloom profits of our day.  No, I didn’t spell it wrong, I meant it.  God used prophets to speak to them not us.  Verse 2 emphasizes and verifies this is true.  Read it carefully.

Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;

I realize that this is just one verse, but Paul says a mouthful here.  First, he says in these last days.  He is clearly talking about the days that he and those he is writing to are living in.  We cannot even mistakenly put those last days in our time.  This in what the end time conference speakers and those who profit from a never-ending stream such ignorance perpetually continue to do.  They take the last days of that time and try to plug them into our time.  Creating a massive mess that resembles tangled Christmas lights.  It’s difficult to undo but undo it we must.  And all that comes from the first five words.  Now for the next six.

“spoken unto us by his Son”

Remember from verse one that God was speaking to the fathers by the prophets.  Paul says they were being spoken to in their time (which was the last days) by the Son(Jesus).  So Paul is writing to folks in his day and declaring that those days were the last days and in the last days Jesus is speaking to them.  In the past God spoke to the Fathers by the prophets but now, Paul says in our time God is speaking to us by His Son.  In the past specific people got talked to by other specific people but now “us” is being talked to by God through Jesus.  Jesus is still speaking that is undeniable.  Everything He is and everything He did still speaks.  But the prophets on the other hand are not speaking anymore. 

Now I recognize the five-fold ministry and I’m aware that prophets are still a part of it.  Revelation 19:10 says “for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.”  Jesus said in Matthew 11:13, “For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John” and in John 5:39, “Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.” Luke 24:27, “And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.”  I could go on and on but the picture is clear.  The prophets Jesus said prophesied till John.  John was there and Jesus even tells us that he is Elijah.  The fulfillment of yet another prophecy.  Jesus is in and of Himself the fulfillment of all the law and the prophets.  Jesus is the prophet of the new covenant and prophets in the new covenant must testify of Him, not helicopters coming out of pits.  If the prophet you hear is speaking the about helicopters, who the anti-christ is and similar nonsense he is operating in the wrong covenant.

We have claimed that the prophets have said things that are unfulfilled and that is a lie.  Matthew 5:17, “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.”  The only way He is not a failure is if he did what he said he came to do.  Jesus was completely successful.  You have to believe that he was unsuccessful in order to preach or even to believe popularized, “end time” theology.  

It’s time to stop the nonsense and believe you are here for a purpose.  Jesus is not coming back because of the trouble in the earth.  If so, He would have come before now.  Those who believe things are worse than ever are in need of a history lesson.  You are not in the last days.  You are in a new day.  You are in a new covenant.

The last days Paul was speaking of as well as other writers were the last days of the old covenant.  It ended in 70 AD.  History lesson,  Jesus prophesied it in Matthew 24, since He is the only one who could.  That tyrannical religious system was left desolate, laid to waste.  Jesus was the last and only sacrifice that could take away the sin of the world.  We don’t need another one nor do the Jewish people.  Rebuild that temple and kill every animal in it you want to.  It will be a waste of time.  Hebrews 9:11-12, “But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building;12 Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.”  (mic drop). 

I could continue this post as there is much more to be written.  We are here to be agents of change in the earth.  To many of us however don’t want to be here.  We are crying to be rescued.  We want Jesus to come take us home.  By taking us out or by dying.  This mindset is selfish and contrary to everything that we as Christians claim to stand for.  We at times seem to stand and cheer the for the eternal judgement of the wicked.  We seem to want people to burn, suffer, and pay for what they have done.  Jesus paid the price for all the sin of every man. That should be enough to show us how wrong we have been.

Please share this with all of your friends who frequently diet upon the errors that are preached from the popular pulpits of the world.  Smith Wigglesworth had a philosophy in preaching.  He believed it should make people happy.  It should make you happy that we are not in the last days awaiting all the doom and erroneous fear mongering prophecy.  Smith also said that if preaching didn’t make you happy it should make you mad.  It might but it doesn’t make it any less true.
