Hope in the Lord of Lords and King of Kings

Today , the Lord gave me a confirmation of making this post and encouraging others to continue to Hope in the Lord.

About a day or so ago , in prayer the Lord showed me in psalm 147, through His word how He takes pleasure and delights indeed in those that HOPE in His Mercy, and those that HOPE in Him. I pondered and meditated on these verse, what a wonderful Heavenly Father, we do serve. 🤗😊🙌🙌 and I certainly want the Lord to take pleasure and delight in me.

Today in prayer, I got more confirmation as the Lord Jesus Christ led me to read psalms 71 and 78.

These are more verses from psalm 71 and 78 of Hoping in the Lord.

Psalm 71 is about God’s constant presence and Help. It’s about how David put his hope and trust in the Lord to deliver him from those that seek to harm and hurt him. 🙏🙏 Psalm 78, is a reminder of how the children of Israel should hope in God, how they did in the past, and the consequences of not trusting and hoping in the Lord. It describes how they relied on their own understanding and took things into their own hands by running after false gods. Indeed , this is what happens when you give up hope and allow a spirit of discouragement and despair to take over you. It’s the opposite of hope. This is so ENCOURAGING to me, to not give into despair or discouragement but to HOPE in the Lord.

Here in South Africa, where I am based, the government is putting in place amendments to the Health Act, where people can be forced in quarantine facilities if they are deemed a health threat, then against their will given appropriate “medical treatment”. Those that are awake will already know what I am talking about, and it’s happening in other places of the world too.

But despite all this, Yah is tell me, He has everything under control, He is in control, I put my HOPE and TRUST in Him. He alone knows how to deliver and save His people. I know as we get closer to the DAY OF THE LORD, it’s also exciting for those believers that are giving their all to Lord Jesus Christ…🤗🎉🎉🎉 God has got us, we need to continue to HOPE IN HIM. He will guide us and tell us what to do, where to go, how to prepare for the END TIMES. I pray that we all do indeed increase in our Hope and faith in the Lord.

How to understand the WHY of the Rapture by looking into Galilean wedding customs

I recently watched a wonderful movie on Sabbath , called the Rapture of the church (Galilean wedding custom) , which explains the why of the Rapture and second coming of Christ.

A wonderful sister in Christ recommended this movie. I don’t want to give it all away, but I really recommend that you watch this movie to better understand who makes it to the wedding feast, the parable of the ten virgins and so many other parables that Lord Jesus Christ spoke about relating to His second coming.

I now understand why only the Father knows when the Son returns. Lord Jesus Christ used a lot of parables and often to relate it to people He looked at their cultures. He and His disciples were also Galilean. The way a Galilean wedding is conducted is totally different from western customs. It’s usually the bride who awaits her bridegroom, who goes to his father’s house to prepare a place for them. Only the Father knows and tells his son when the place is ready, up to his standards and then tells his son to go get his bride. The bride on the other hand , takes a year to prepare things like getting materials for her dress etc.

There’s so many fascinating facts, like the bride and her brides maids would sleep in there wedding garments , being ever ready with their lamps trimmed etc…awaiting the sound of the trumpet, indicating that her bridegroom had arrived and that they had to get up and make their way to the wedding feast. Only the bride , bridesmaids and other of the town’s people that were ready when they heard the trumpet, would go to the feast, the others who were foolish were locked out.

The garments I believe are also important and symbolic of how we need to keep our garments clean until the return of our Lord Jesus Christ 🙏🙏🙏 This movie really helped me understand these concepts , and why we should be ever ready. It shows why date setting is really bad. It also shows that preparation does indeed take time. 😊🙏

I will include the link to the movie below. I pray this movie helps you in your understanding of the why of the Rapture of the church and the scripture related to it. Blessings!
