Last Days Sequence of Events – continued:
(5) The Great Exodus
This is part 5 of the Last Days Sequence of Events series; those who want to become Yehovah’s people are just now being called into the Wilderness by the 144,000 servants of Elohim that are scattered throughout the earth. Here are Yehovah’s first two messages that they will proclaim to the world.
“Fear Elohim [THE lawmaker and judge of the whole earth] and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water.” (Rev 14:7)
“Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she has made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.” (Rev 14:8)
Their message is “Come out from among her and separate yourselves unto Yehovah and His people.”
“Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and has become a dwelling place of demons, a prison for every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hated bird! (Rev 18:2)
“Come out of her, My people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. (Rev 18:4)
It will be at this time that “the woman”, at least the wise and humble among her, will join themselves to one of these set-apart servants of Yehovah that have been lifted up all around the world. EVERYONE will have one of these men within walking distance and they will find provision, protection and instruction in righteousness in each of these locations.
Then the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by Yehovah, that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days. (Rev 12:6)
Until the spirit is poured upon us from on high, and the wilderness becomes a fruitful field, and the fruitful field is counted as a forest. Then justice will dwell in the wilderness, and righteousness remain in the fruitful field. The work of righteousness will be peace, and the effect of righteousness, quietness and assurance forever. My people will dwell in a peaceful habitation, in secure dwellings, and in quiet resting places. (Isa 32:15-18)
“But I will gather the remnant of My flock out of all countries where I have driven them, and bring them back to their folds; and they shall be fruitful and increase. I will set up shepherds over them who will feed them; and they shall fear no more, nor be dismayed, nor shall they be lacking,” says Yehovah. (Jer 23:3-4)
The 3 1/2 years, 42 months, 1260 days after the first great shaking of the earth, and the beginning of the tribulation, will be a time marked by contrasts between Yehovah’s people and those who stay in the world. There will be great similarities between the land of Goshen and the land of Egypt during the 10 plagues of the first Exodus.
And in that day I will set apart the land of Goshen, … I will make a difference between My people and your people. ” (Exo 8:22-23)
“Therefore behold, the days are coming,” says Yehovah, “that it shall no more be said, ‘Yehovah lives who brought up Israel’s seed from the land of Egypt,’ but, ‘Yehovah lives who brought up Israel’s seed from the land of the north and from all the lands where He had driven them.’ For I will bring them back into their land which I gave to their fathers. (Jer 16:14-15)
Arise, shine; for your light has come! And the glory of Yehovah is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; but Yehovah will arise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you. The Gentiles shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising. “Lift up your eyes all around, and see: They all gather together, they come to you; your sons shall come from afar, and your daughters shall be nursed at your side. Then you shall see and become radiant, and your heart shall swell with joy; because the abundance of the sea shall be turned to you, the wealth of the Gentiles shall come to you. (Isa 60:1-5)
It is during this time that Yehovah will make all the kingdoms of the world, His Kingdom. While the world suffers from shortage and great evil as a result of their own doings; Yehovah’s people will have a time of supernatural provision and peace that no one has ever seen the like of.
For Yehovah will comfort Zion, He will comfort all her waste places; He will make her wilderness like Eden, and her desert like the garden of Yehovah; joy and gladness will be found in it, thanksgiving and the voice of melody. “Listen to Me, My people; and give ear to Me, O My nation: For law will proceed from Me, and I will make My justice rest as a light of the peoples. (Isa 51:3-4)
“For behold, the day is coming, burning like an oven, and all the proud, yes, all who do wickedly will be stubble. And the day which is coming shall burn them up,” says Yehovah of hosts, “That will leave them neither root nor branch. But to you who fear My name the Sun [the light] of righteousness shall arise with healing in his wings; and you shall go out and grow fat like stall-fed calves. You shall trample the wicked, for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet on the day that I do this,” says Yehovah of hosts. “Remember the Torah of Moses, My servant, which I commanded him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments. (Mal 4:1-4)
On a side note; not being able to buy or sell without the mark of the beast, will mean nothing to those who dwell in these 144,000 locations throughout the earth. For that prohibition only effects those who dwell on the earth by remaining in the world. Those who join themselves to the 144,000 have made their dwelling places in heaven.
And he deceives those who dwell on the earth—by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived. He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. (Rev 13:14-17)
When the great exodus begins, I can not impress upon you how important it will be to “drop everything” and get to these set-apart men, and their families, as quickly as possible. It will not take long for the world to realize that every person that joins themselves to these holy and set-apart groups will be lost to them forever. And because of that realization they will try to put up a perimeter around each location. Not to keep us contained, that would be impossible, but rather to keep others from joining with us.
To “drop everything” means to leave your house, your car, your boat, your investment portfolio and everything else behind. This will be very hard for many to do and this is perhaps why Yeshua said that it is so hard for a rich man to get into heaven. I urge you to make a careful distinction concerning that which is temporal and that which has eternal value. Most of what we have done and worked for all our lives will be lost; but everything that is done in accordance with Yehovah’s word and ways will endure. Right now is not too soon to begin to come out of this world.
Depart! Depart! Go out from there, touch no unclean thing; go out from the midst of her, be clean, you who bear the vessels of Yehovah. For you shall not go out with haste, nor go by flight; for Yehovah will go before you, and the Elohim of Israel will be your rear guard. (Isa 52:11-12)
Next time we will see that those that do not get to the 144,000 soon enough will have only two choices; the wrath of Elohim or the wrath of men, either way — they must perish.
