Just prior to the arrest, “trial” and crucifixion (at the behest of the jews), of Yahshua the Messiah, He prophesied of a worldwide period of extreme upheaval and unrest unparalleled in the Race of Adam’s history. This period of time would be characterized by religious deception (which the jews are now and have been doing), warfare, earthquakes, famines and disease epidemics, along with many other catastrophic events (Luke 21:7-8). In this discourse, the Messiah made it plain that the “Kingdom of Yahweh” was NOT YET HERE.
He told His disciples that, after these life changing events, people “And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory“, “So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand” (Luke 21:27, 31). Yahshua clearly said that the “Kingdom of Yahweh” will not be established on earth until AFTER His triumphant return to power and great glory.
He also, had made this clear on other occasions. How many of us have recited the Lord’s Prayer without recognizing the plain meaning of the words as we say them? These familiar words were given by Yahshua the Messiah in response to the disciples’ request to teach them exactly how to pray. “Therefore pray in this way: Our Father, who is in Heaven, Hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven” (Matthew 6:9-10). The most common and prolific prayer in all of Israelite Christendom acknowledges that Yahweh’s Kingdom is not here and that Israelite Christians are to fervently pray until His arrival.
Near the end of His life, while being questioned by the then Roman governor Pontius Pilate prior to His subsequent crucifixion, Yahshua the Messiah clearly stated; “… My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence” (John 18:36), (notice how here He also makes it clear that He was NOT to be delivered unto the jews, for He knew they were of the diabolical one, and NOT of His House, many within jewdeo-Christianity bypass this verse all together because it shows they are NOT THE CHILDREN OF YAHWEH!). It was then that Pilate demanded to know if the Messiah was a King. Yahshua replied; “… Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice” (John 18:37).
Now, Hebrews 11 describes the faith of Yahweh’s servants through the millennia, summing up their history and experiences, verses 13-16 tells us; “These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth. For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country. And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned. But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city“. Even Abraham, the father of the Biblical Israelite faithful, “For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God” (Hebrews 11:10).
Although Yahweh’s people today, (I am speaking about the Caucasian people, not the jews here people) experience a foretaste of Yahweh’s coming Kingdom in their lives, many Scriptures make it clear that the “Kingdom of Yahweh” has not yet arrived, but it will be established on the earth in the future.
I pray that you have found your path and it has lead you to a loving, faithful relationship with our Lord and Savior Yahshua the Messiah. We eagerly await HIS second coming, and as ordered in the Holy Scriptures “Occupy till I come”.
