Y'shua | יֵשׁוּעַ
... a light for the revelation of the Gentiles.
And a glory to your people Israel.
Isaiah 49:6 CJB| Luke 2:32 AENT
…and then I realized
Only when Mashiyach Y’shua returns will there be real PEACE. My prayer for 2018? May we all work for peace in this, our days and work even more diligently for the return of Y’shua! Amen!
Being sick today with a cold, I absentminded explore where my reading will lead, and am shocked to find this! I lived in Pirmasens 1952-1955 and remember but did not then understand!
May we all experience a good 2018 in PEACE.
The city of Pirmasens in which I lived was reduced during the war to total destruction. As I look at the reality of war through this web site, I was not aware of the horror of what I remember as just “normal”. And yet I was only there (age 3-6) for the “Clean Up”.
I did though by travels see the general destruction of Germany. After we came to America, my grandmother stood me on a hill overlooking Atlanta and, for personal reasons, explained to me in great detail the exact same destruction of Atlanta. The concepts of what I saw in Germany and what was explained to me in and about Atlanta were stunning. What is more shocking though is that I thought them to be “normal”!
My prayer for 2018 is for PEACE, and that we never again see such total destruction. The longest war in American history still grinds on in Afghanistan.
I pray that we (USA) never get used to war as the normal such as I thought that it was as a child in Germany!
THE GOOD NEWS ACCORDING TO MATTHEW Chapter 24 (Aramaic English NT –Roth)
1. And Y’shua went out of the temple to depart, and his disciples drew near and were showing him the construction of the temple. 2. But he said to them, “Behold, don’t you see all these things? Truly I say to you, nothing will be spared. Not one stone here will be left upon another, which will not be torn down.” 3. And while Y’shua was sitting on the Mount of Olives, his disciples243 drew near and were saying among themselves and to him, “Tell us when these things will be and what is the sign of your coming and the end of the world.” 4. Y’shua answered and said to them, “Beware, let no man deceive you. 5. For many will come in my name and will say that ‘I am the Mashiyach.’ And many they will deceive. 6. For you are bound to hear of revolutions and rumor of wars. Watch out and do not be disturbed, for it is necessary that all these things happen, but it is not yet the end. 7. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines and plagues and earthquakes in different places. 8. But all these things are only the beginning of sorrows. 9. Then they will deliver to afflictions and they will kill you and you will be hated by all nations because of my name. 10. Then many will stumble and will hate one another and will betray one another. 11. And many false prophets will arise and deceive many. 12. And because of the growth of iniquity, the love of many will grow cold. 13. But whoever has patience until the end, he will have life. 14. And this Good News of the Kingdom will be preached in all the world as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come, 15. And when you see the sign of uncleanness and desolation, that was spoken of by Daniel the prophet, which will stand in the Set Apart place.244 He that reads, let him understand. 16. Then those who are in Yehuda, let them flee to the mountain. 17. And he who is on the roof, let him not come down to take that which is in his house. 18. And he who is in the field, let him not turn back to take back his clothes. 19. And woe to the pregnant and to those who are nursing in those days. 20. And pray that your flight will not be in winter, nor on the Shabbat. 21. For then will be great suffering such as has not been from the beginning of the world until the present, nor will ever be again.245 22. And if those days were not shortened, not any flesh would live, but because of the chosen, those days will be shortened. 23. If anyone should say to you then, behold the Messiah is here or there, do not believe it. 24. For false Messiahs and lying prophets will arise and they will produce signs and great wonders in order to deceive if possible even the chosen. 25. Behold, I have told you beforehand. 26. Therefore, if they say to you, ‘Behold, he is in the wilderness,’ do not go out. Or, ‘Behold, he is in the inner chamber,’ do not believe it. 27. For as the sunshine comes out from the East and is seen even in the West, thus will be the coming of the Son of man.
