The Feast of Tabernacles - The Establishment of the Kingdom of Heaven!






















The Feast of Tabernacles prophetic fulfillment is the Kingdom Age under the reign of the Messiah of Israel (Isa. 2: 1-5, 11:1-10; Micah 4:1-4; Zech. 8:21-23; 14:9, 16-21 etc...).
.                                                         
This establishment of the Kingdom of Heaven will commence after an EXPONENTIALLY HORRIFIC  seven-year worldwide tribulation climaxing with the Battle of Armageddon, ( i.e., at the return of Messiah to earth) (Matt 24; Rev. 19:11-21).

First, there will be a great global, spiritual apostasy and lawlessness (godlessness) in which global war, genocide, and pestilence shall super-exceedingly abound (Rev. 6; 9:17-19). There will be great and awesome signs in the heavens (Joel 2:30-31; Amos 8:9; Matt. 24:29; Luke 21:25; Rev. 6:12-14). There will be global natural disasters - earthquakes, tidal waves, fire, and asteroid bombardments that will follow (Rev. 6:12; 8:1-12; 16:17-18). These events will intensify as this seven-year period proceeds. There shall be fearful, supernatural judgments such as never before seen from Almighty God on humanity due to its super-abounding lawlessness and anti-Christ rebellion (Psalm 2, 110, Isaiah 24; Dan. 12:1; Joel 2:2; Matt. 24:21-22).

But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings (Malachi 4:2a).

Despite all these devastating global wars, mass genocide, mass pestilences, supernatural calamities and natural disasters, the world will not pay attention and humble themselves before God (Rev. 16:9, 11, 21). All of these calamitous events shall be the catalyst for the rise of a global opposition and tyrannical, fascist oppression from Lucifer, his Anti-Christ and his 10 Regional Nations upon the remaining inhabitants of the world during the last 3 ½ years of this 7-year Tribulation Period (Rev. 13; 17:13-17). There shall also be demonic tyranny; oppression and possession on a global scale that would make the movie, The Exorcist, seem like Barney the dinosaur singing “I love you” in comparison (Rev. 9:1-12; 9:14-15; 18:2).

In the end, this seven-year fallout from the global devastation of global war, supernatural judgments, natural disasters, human carnage, and demonic and human oppression will make the world an absolute wasteland. At the conclusion of the Tribulation Period, nothing will remain signifying resemblance to the world just past. All cities, technology and human achievements - even topographical land features and remnants of civilization - will be absolutely laid waste (Isa. 24:6, 19-20; Rev. 16:16-21). As the Genesis deluge obliterated the former, "pre-flood" Adamic world (Gen. 6-8; 2 Peter 3:5-7), so also will God-ordained supernatural and natural judgments and disasters do to this present one. As man sows more and more “godless seed” by violating God’s natural and spiritual laws, he will inevitably reap the godless consequences. This full-blown depravity and insanity will lead to a final showdown at the Battle of Armageddon (Rev. 16:11-16). What is most amazing is that by this time any are left alive to march against Almighty God at the end of the Great Tribulation. Filled with rebellious hatred and led by Satan, the remaining dregs of humanity that have somehow survived these seven years will gather themselves together in absolute defiance to battle against Almighty God and His Christ (Psalm 2; Rev. 16:9-11). Read what is written in the Holy Scriptures regarding the conclusion of the Great Tribulation period:

"Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left, the earth is utterly broken down, the earth is clean dissolved, the earth is moved exceedingly. The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again" (Isaiah 24:6, 19-20).

"And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon. And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done. And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath. And EVERY island fled away (VANISHED), and the mountains were not found. And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great" (Rev. 16:16-21).

"And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved (delivered): but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened" (Matt 24:22).

It will be at this time that the Heavens will open and the rejected Savior of the World, the Lamb of God, the King of Kings will gloriously RETURN forth from Heaven’s glory to destroy this godless, global rebellion. The earth will then be purged of Lucifer, all demonic activity and unregenerate (godless) men (Isa 66:15; Matt. 13:30, 41-42, 48-50; 25:31-43; Dan. 12; Rev. 20:1-3). Only those who have repented and placed their full trust in Almighty God and His Savior will enter into Christ’s Kingdom. The Messiah of Israel will then establish His 1000-year kingdom reign from Jerusalem in the land of Israel (Ezek 43:7; Rev. 20:4). At last, the peace of Jerusalem will thus be finally fulfilled and the reproach of Israel finally removed (Micah 4:6-7). The nation of Israel - God’s chosen people - will again rise to be the chief nation of the world, just as Almighty God has said (Isa. 11:2; 61: 2-11; Micah 4:2, 8; Zech. 14:16-20).

Christ’s Reign of Heaven on Earth

.During this 1000-year period, the Lord Jesus (Christ/ Messiah) rules and reigns as the Righteous Despot over the nations of the world with an iron rod of righteousness. His reign will take place from Jerusalem and Israel will be His chief nation of blessing to all nations that are left (Isa. 11:1-10; Micah 4:1-4; Zech. 8:21-23; 14:9, 16-21). The Messiah will wield an iron rod of RIGHTEOUSNESS and Rule the nations with justice and righteous judgment (Isa. 9:6-7; Rev. 19:15). Under Messiah's reign will be pure joy as Almighty God’s curse on the earth shall be removed, and the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God will be fully implemented and enjoyed. Righteousness shall reign and abundant peace, life, blessing, prosperity and joy will exponentially increase and dominate this period until... the end (Isa. 11:1-10; 61:11, Rev. 20:7-15). There will be no more war and Jew and gentle will abide in peace under Messiah's reign (Isa. 2:4; Micah 4:3). As a result, all of man’s godless ideologies and delusional, alternative realities of "make-believe" will NEVER again exalt themselves outwardly against the reality and absolutes of Almighty God (Isaiah 11:9; 65: 16; Hab. 2:14; Zech. 14:9; Dan. 2:44; 7:14, 27). Any such rebellion will be swiftly judged and order will prevail. The Millennial Kingdom Age will be a time of knowing Almighty God and His Christ in a very personal and visual way. This 1000-year period will consist of: 1) the restoration and fulfillment of God’s promises to Israel, 2) illumination of and reflection on the Lamb’s saving work by the entire world, and 3) preparation for the ETERNAL state of the New Heaven and New Earth (Rev. 21:1). The most amazing aspect of the Millennial Kingdom is its conclusion. At the end of this Messianic, utopian age, multitudes of the offspring of those saved (regenerated) individuals who survived the Tribulation period and who first populated the kingdom will rebel as the sand of the sea (Rev. 20:7-8)! Even in a perfect state and with perfect conditions of the millennium age, the unregenerate heart of man will still rebel and seek to overthrow Almighty God (Gen 8:21; Jer. 17:9; Rev. 20:9). This final rebellion will be the pinnacle of the insanity of mankind. 

Under Messiah's reign will be pure joy as Almighty God’s curse on the earth shall be removed, and the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God will be fully implemented and enjoyed. Righteousness shall reign and abundant peace, life, blessing, prosperity and joy will exponentially increase and dominate this period.

As this final godless rebellion and war is crushed, time will have finally expired and come to and end (Rev. 20:11). Man will enter into the timelessness and perfect estate of ETERNITY FOREVERMORE. Their ETERNAL abode and destiny will be based on their free will decision to choose either God’s holy Heaven or His holy ETERNAL prison called the Lake of Fire (Rev. 20:12-15).

What is Your Choice?

The day in which we are living is fluctuating (changing) at a “breakneck” speed. Multitudes are being deluged in and overwhelmed by this “world of information” which has developed EXPONENTIALLY. In these dark days may it be your sincere desire to place your sole trust in the One who is ETERNALLY trustworthy and unmovable. Do not be deceived in thinking that the 2016 elections will save us and our country in this most trying and crucial time in our history. Only in the Messiah  is our hope. May you find your hope in Him alone.

The Kingdom of Heaven and the fulfillment of the Feast of Tabernacles is truly at hand, and nothing is going to stop that. May you place your trust in the LORD Jesus Christ (Psalm 110:1) and be ready, so that Day of His wrath will not overtake you as a thief (1 Thess. 5:2-4).

If you do not know the Lord Jesus Christ, Repent! for the Kingdom of Heaven is truly at hand!
