Reasons For Why Thousands Of Christians Are Removed From God’s Kingdom In 2021 During The Yovel (Jubilee) – God is a consuming fire
As people of the New Testament, we read the Old Testament from a bygone era, partly to learn what happened to the people under the days of the kings of Israel and Judah. Most of them failed. Most of them turned their back on God. In this present post-Church era, we write about what happened to the Christians in turn, those that did not make it to be kept by Father in the Son upon the inspection of their fruit. So now, we, the House of Israel, also will learn from our present world, with real folks, how not to repeat their same mistakes in dealing with God. For God is a consuming fire. If God is not a consuming fire, then many Christians, whoever, wherever, whatever, will remain in God’s kingdom and God’s laws for the Yovel (Jubilee) year are “not real”. But God is a possessor as well as a protector of His own. No one may snatch a soul from the strong hand of God, unless God Himself separates the individual.
But since God’s laws illustrate His holy (exclusive) character, for anyone that remotes knows God as who He is, love Him or hate Him, He is going to make His laws manifest in mercy, grace as well as in justice. Where one fits into either of those qualities is all revealed in the heart of each individual, for that all the Laws of God are written in the New Covenant. Not on a tablet of stone, but on the flesh and blood deep inside the heart of each person who identifies as “a Christian”.
As Paul says in Romans 2, “for when Gentiles (non-Jews) do the things in the law, these, although not having the law, are a law to themselves, who show the work of the law written in their hearts. Either Israel or Judah are pointing to the descendants of Ya’aqov (Jacob). However, in here, the sojourners (the gentiles) also stand to benefit from this same promise. That is why God has scattered a seed of Israel in every corner of the world and make our presence as the seeds of Israel in every so-called Christian church community. God is the One that creates this situation where some gentiles are sojourning along with us, the House of Israel. Some of us are serving as Christian pastors (e.g. David Jeremiah). Some of us attend Christian churches, at least in the Church era before the Yovel (2020- 2021). But in the last days, one of God’s promises is to gather all His people, the children of Israel, back to Tsiyon. Once, again, we will be the chosen nation (Yisrael) and invite the bride of Christ to come worship the Almighty with us.
Which prophet foretold the new covenant which will be written on people’s hearts?
The idea of the new covenant is based chiefly upon Jeremiah 31:31–34 : 31 Look, the days are coming,” declares[a] YHVH, “and I will make[b] a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah, 32 not like the covenant that I made[c] with their ancestors[d] on the day of my grasping them[e] by their hand, bringing them out from the land of Egypt, my covenant that they themselves broke, though I myself was a master over them,” declares[f] YHVH.
33 “But this is the covenant that I will make[g] with the house of Israel after those days,” declares[h] YHVH: “I will put my law in their inward parts and on their hearts[i] I will write it, and I will be to them God, and they themselves will be to me people. 34 And they will no longer teach each one his neighbor, or each one his brother, saying,[j] ‘Know YHVH,’ for all of them will know me, from their smallest[k] and up to their greatest,”[l] declares[m] YHVH, “for I will forgive their iniquity and their sin I will no longer remember.”
Christians who have a bona fide relationship with God through Jesus Christ are unlikely to be let go of by God in the Yovel. It is really those who have climbed the bandwagon for all of or part of the last 49 years that have come to this point in a 50 year cycle of the Yovel.
Time was on their side to measure up to the expectations of God the Redeemer of sinner, through the lessons given in church, if any, it varies, through personal hardships, through prayer and above all, through the eye to page/screen, the reading of God’s Word in the Bible.
Within this period of time, each is given the resources and the time to consider the faith. “No one is saved”. I know, preachers lie, so get over it. If you buy their lies, it is on you. Why? Because the Word of God tests and contradicts so many of their full lies and half lies and mistruths.
Preachers lie by saying once you mouth a mantra, you are “saved”. It is not so according to the Bible. Hear our Lord say this in Mark 16. Note each element where “you” shall have no control of. It is not like “you do this, then you get this”. “Baptism” per Christ means with the Spirit, who only He can administer. This is not the church water immersion. Messiah Y’shua has the upper hand to give to whomsoever that satisfies His requirement, and according to the standards laid out in the Bible. This rules out the pedestrians and the Christian “tourists”.
16 The one who believes and is baptized will be saved, but the one who refuses to believe will be condemned. 17 And these signs will accompany those who believe: in my name they will expel demons, they will speak in new tongues, 18 they will pick up[v] snakes.[w] And if they drink any deadly poison it will never hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick and they will get[x] well.”
But if the preacher made “a case of salvation” out of one verse selection from the Letter To The Romans, then it is the preacher’s case, not God’s. And we have seen many, many. Will they stand up to the test of God? The whole Bible is meant to be read, if you like, as a manual for knowing God and His expectations with stipulations and mitigation. It is OK if a Christian decided to follow his preacher, then understand his case stands or falls upon the merits of that particular preacher(s). I have met many who tell me what Arnold Murray used to teach in life. Where his doctrine, for instance, failed the Bible, the follower of Murray has his or her case stand or fall due to Murray, not the promises of God. Of risk again is another mega preacher called Joel Osteen. In my perspective, Joel Osteen and the rest are in no position to lead anyone, in the true sense, to God. At best what Osteen has done is to talk about all the good things that one can say about God. I would wager that many of the Osteen following, and the Hillsong following, the NAR following, the Latter Rain following will perish from the kingdom during the Yovel and the baptism of fire.
The Old Testament lists in multiple places that one is to fear God. If you do, you begin to receive wisdom.
The fear of the Lord – YHVH – is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction. – The person who does not fear God plays the fool. In in the Yovel, it costs the fool his eternity.
The fear of the Lord – YHVH – is hatred of evil. Pride and arrogance and the way of evil and perverted speech I hate.
And he said to man, ‘Behold, the fear of the Lord – YHVH -, that is wisdom, and to turn away from evil is understanding.’” – It may take a life time. But if you don’t make a start to fearing God, then you will never have begun.
The end of the matter; all has been heard. Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of man. – This is the summary of the learnings of Shelomoh (Solomon) all his life. He did not fear God. He talked about it only. He ended poorly. His name was not mentioned in Hebrews 11.
The fear of the Lord -YHVH – is the beginning of wisdom; all those who practice it have a good understanding. His praise endures forever!
The Old Testament makes numerous mentions of the pre-incarnate Word of God – Y’shua (Jesus) as YHVH. People of the Old Testament who feared YHVH were successful. If Y’shua has become also your Lord, then obviously you fear YHVH in this life. If not, then whatever He says is only reference for you and carries no weight on your life. You are what is called a freelance believer, not serving God. You are what is called a free radical. In the laws of Physics, a free radical can be defined as any molecular species capable of independent existence that contains an unpaired electron in an atomic orbital. The presence of an unpaired electron results in certain common properties that are shared by most radicals. Many radicals are unstable and highly reactive. A free radical in the kingdom of God is unstable and he shall be claimed by the devil in the end.
And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell.
“for our God is a consuming fire.” Hebrews 12:29
Excerpt begins from Clarence L. Haynes Jr. (Clarence is the author of The Pursuit of Purpose: How God Leads You Into His Perfect Will).
“It’s not often we think of God in these terms, yet here in the book of Hebrews we are presented with a very interesting description of God as a consuming fire. Of all the ways God is described in the Bible, this one is probably the most curious to me. This description didn’t just happen in Hebrews, it was a description from back in the Old Testament.
What does this mean and what are some reasons to know why God is a consuming fire? Knowing this may give you a different understanding of who God is.
What Does It Mean That God Is a “Consuming Fire”?
When you think of why God is a consuming fire, let’s consider the meaning of these words. The word “consuming” can have different meanings. It can mean to use up, to destroy or annihilate, or to absorb the attention of someone or something. In Scripture, fire can be used as a form of judgment but it is also used in purification or refining. With that being the case, what are the things God would turn his attention to consuming or burning away?
1. Your Attention to Idols or Idolatry
“Be careful not to forget the covenant of the Lord your God that he made with you; do not make for yourselves an idol in the form of anything the Lord your God has forbidden. For the Lord your God is a consuming fire, a jealous God” (Deuteronomy 4:23-24).
In this passage Moses was speaking to the Israelites as they were getting closer to the time when they would crossover into the promised land. This was a reminder to the people of Israel that God was the one who had brought them to this place, and he wanted them to never forget that.
Moses was encouraging them to remember the covenant God had made with them and to uphold their end of the covenant because God would uphold his. This would require them to run from idols and idolatry and have a pure heart and love for God. In this instance, God was absorbed with keeping their attention and focus on him because he knew that if they fell into sin and idolatry he would not be able to bless them. To bless them in their sin would violate his holiness and righteousness.
