A Table Awaits

Come to the table that God has set for you, and be delighted that your place is preserved, with a name tag! While the current spiritual battle rages on, and new wars are contemplated, be secure in who you are “in Christ”. We are in His army, and we can feel like weary soldiers with buckling knees. We may even drag our feet in our walk of faith, but we pray through and we push on towards the banquet table that our Father promised and personally prepared for us. We shall feast on many glad tidings of the saints that previously went to glory. Imagine uplifting, amazing conversations with Peter, John, Martha, Amos, Priscilla, Luke, Ruth and Paul. Just think about that sense of satisfaction that will be —when all your voiced and unspoken questions are all answered! At the Grand Wedding Supper of the Lamb, all our enemies may look in on us from the outside– however, the mockers and those who resisted the Truth will be prohibited from joining us. Without their name in The Book of Life, those who scoffed at Jesus and made fun of us — they are permanently excluded from the promises of God. Kinda of sad, but Vengeance was left to our Father and His Word and Way prevails. Entirely secure in His Word, we rejoice to eat amazing delicacies and toast our Host, Jesus Christ our Lord, and generous King. “You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.” Psalm 23:4 Are you confident you will be there? Why Deny Myself?

My sheep listen to My voice; I know them, and they follow Me.” John 10:27

Wolves wear sheep’s clothing. ❤️ Psalm 55:9-16 “Lord, confuse the wicked, confound their words, for I see violence and strife in the city. Day and night they prowl about on its walls; malice and abuse are within it. Destructive forces are at work in the city; threats and lies never leave its streets. If an enemy were insulting me, I could endure it…But it is you, a man like myself, my companion, my close friend, with whom I once enjoyed sweet fellowship at the house of God, as we walked about among the worshipers. Let death take my enemies by surprise; let them go down alive to the realm of the dead, for evil finds lodging among them. As for me, I call to God, and the Lord saves me.’

Pastor Jimmy Evans “As Christians, we should not be surprised about the global assault on Jews. On the contrary, we should expect this activity to continue increasing until it reaches a fever pitch. This is a sign that the Rapture is near.

In Revelation 11, we are told that in the very last days, for forty-two months, the city of Jerusalem will be trampled upon by the nations. (“They will tread the holy city underfoot,” Revelation 11:2 predicts.) Two Jewish prophets will arise during that time, displaying signs and wonders that emulate the ministry of Moses and Elijah. Both God and the world will turn their special attention to the Jews during this final season of history—but in very different ways. God has never taken His eyes off Israel. Our Father will turn His attention to the Jews in an unprecedented way by resuming the prophetic clock that paused two thousand years ago. This opens the door of faith to the Gentiles, as Daniel 9:27 and the New Testament clarify.

But on the other hand, the world will turn special attention to the Jews in order to persecute them with greater intensity.The good news is that God will protect His people. As the story continues, Revelation 12 twice portrays “a woman” (Israel) being sheltered in the wilderness from Satan’s attacks. This lasts for three-and-a-half years (Revelation 12:6), just like the period of prophetic witness (Revelation 11:2-3). No matter how hard Satan tries (Revelation 12:12-17), he can never break God’s covenant with the Jews. Even though God will preserve corporate Israel, however, this does not mean that individual Jews (and Christians) will be totally unharmed. Bible prophecy predicts persecution (Revelation 12:17), and some of the saints will be killed:

It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation…10 He who leads into captivity shall go into captivity; he who kills with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.—Revelation 13:7,10

The two prophets of Revelation are among the individual Jews who will be killed when the Antichrist comes to power (Revelation 11:7). That may seem like a moment of tragedy. But victory is coming.” We will be so delighted to see many redeemed Jews at the Marriage Supper of the Lamb.
