Watch Therefore

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
It is hard to learn from a mistake that you do not acknowledge making. 

 

WATCH THEREFORE      
"Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the SON OF MAN is coming." [Matthew 25. 13] 

 

The LORD JESUS, Y’SHUA ha’MASHIACH HIMSELF commanded every believer to watch for HIS return.  No matter the situation, the time or the place — all who believe are steadfastly charged to watch for Y’SHUA'S coming.  "Therefore you also be ready, for the SON OF MAN is coming at an hour you do not expect." [Matthew 24. 44] 

 

Since we do not know the day, hour or minute, we are to be watching always. "But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the SON, but only the FATHER. Take heed, watch and pray; for you do not know when the time is. Watch therefore lest, coming suddenly HE find you sleeping. And what I say to you, I say to all WATCH!" [Mark 13. 32, 33, 37]  This uncertainty should motivate and encourage faithfulness in the believer.  If the believer starts to think, "My MASTER is taking a long time in coming" [Luke 12. 45], there is a very clear and present danger that he will be enticed with sinful temptations and ungodly worldly passions, leading to a falling away. 

 

Our moment-by-moment attitude and objective should be to "live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the BLESSED HOPE the glorious appearing of our great GOD and SAVIOR, JESUS CHRIST, WHO gave HIMSELF for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for HIMSELF a people that are HIS very own, eager to do what is good." [Titus 2. 12 - 14] 

 

John records the promise of MESSIAH Y’SHUA, "Beloved, now we are children of GOD; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when HE is revealed, we shall be like HIM, for we shall see HIM as HE is. And everyone who has this hope in HIM purifies himself, just as HE is pure." [1 John 3. 2 - 3] 

 

May we remain faithful and continually "abide in HIM; that when HE appears, we may have confidence and not be ashamed before HIM at HIS coming." [1 John 2. 28] The LORD commands, "Obey MY voice, and I will be your GOD and you shall be MY people; walk only in the way that I have commanded you, that it may go well with you." [Jeremiah (Yirmeyah) 7. 23 Tanakh, Nevi'im]  All who are born of HIM patiently live righteously.  Wait diligently for GOD'S notable appointed time, the LORD Y’SHUA ha'MASHIACH will return.  Will you be found devoted, faithful and humbly watching?  HE is worth waiting for! 

 

 

Sha’alu (Pray) for the shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
Worship, honor, adoration, glory and majesty belong to YOU, our FATHER, the ONLY TRUE & LIVING GOD. We ask YOU through the HOLY SPIRIT, to direct our thoughts to YOU and sanctify us in Truth, YOUR WORD is TRUTH. Burn that Truth into our soul to exalt and glorify YOUR SON, JESUS WHO'S we are and WHO we serve.  Thank YOU LORD for YOUR faithfulness and YOUR redeeming love! 
This is Yom HaSho`ahHolocaust Remembrance Day
Day 12 of the Omer 

 

Praying for the peace of Jerusalem, is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes.  Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace which is the fruit of Righteousness.

What Each Area of the Site is Meant For: Blogs - This is your personal space. This is where you should post thoughts that are not intended for extensive further discussion. Observations from personal study and events that have occurred in your life belong here. Unless your post ends with questions or makes it apparent that discussion is to follow, it should probably be a blog. As discussed later, blogs are limited to those who hold to historic Christian beliefs. Forums - This is for open discussion relating to the topic posted. Dialogue is encouraged to stay on topic, so if a side conversation begins, open a new discussion. This is where the majority of the activity has taken place so far. Topics should remain general in nature, while in depth discussion on narrow topics should take place in groups. Groups - This is a place to congregate with people who have similar interests and positions in order to have open discussion. The conversation in here is not required to remain on topic, so it is more ready to follow rabbit trails. This is where you should go if you want to gather with a particular kind of theologian. Before initiating a new group, we ask that you consider posting a question in the discussion forum area to see if there is enough interest to justify a separate group. The reason we encourage such action is that, in the event that a group is inactive for 6 months or more, the moderators of Scriptural Studies reserve the right to close down and delete the group due to inactivity. Events - This is available to anyone that wants to post an event that you think the members of Scriptural Studies may be interested in. Contact Denis, Rabbi Del, Rifkah, or Marti for more details on advertising. Our Attitude of conduct: In case you missed them on your way in, take some time to become acquainted with the conduct we expect on this site. You may find our Attidudes on the main forum page. Our purpose at Scripural Studies is that the conversations move in a Gracious way. We define Gracious in the following way: 1) Not closed minded 2) Not self-promoting 3) Not characterized by mass amounts of cut-and-paste proof-texting 4) Not characterized by mass amounts of cut-and-paste from other places 5) Irenic 6) Not slanderous 7) No spamming 8) Perpetual venting bitterness 9) Not confusing or disruptive But in all things you'll be welcome here
