You cannot find Jesus in scriptures (the old testament)
unless the Holy Spirit reveal Him.
When we read the new testament and Paul instructs ( any one Timothy)
To read and study scriptures, he telling them about the Old testament.
We know this by reading the new testament.
I believe the great awakening of Jews and their Muslim brothers
will be when the Holy Spirit reveals Jesus the Messiah through the Old testament.
Exactly , but the irony of the scriptures is that we are what ?
Coming out of the world to me , this is the part that many still read and looking to the world for Jesus to appear in , it will never happen this way the Scriptures still prove many are still under the age of the Law and prophets and the age to Come is the new and Living way and it is by grace and the sacrifice of Jesus Christ and the cross that was the end of the law for those whom believ He was sent and will come again
and How will He come to them ? , by the Spirit and truth , this is not expected ,
But the Father is seeking those to worship Him is Sprint and truth and these are being resurrected now and living though Christ , this is the age where the new and living way and the promises of God are being fulfilled bearing sons of God into Glory in the earth and without end
the warning is to know the trap of Babylon
Here we see two different women one is worldly still the other comes down from heaven and this is the time of the end when if it were possible the very elect would be deceived
John the one who was in the SPIRIT on the Lords Day saw these two and gave us the sign and distinction
Rev 17 1-4
and there came one of the 7 angels [messengers ] which had the 7 vials and talked with me !! saying to me
come here I will show you the judgment of the great whore that sits on many waters [many peoples tongues and nations ] what ? in the world and seeking the signs of the end times to me
with the kings of the earth have committed fornication and inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication
drunk means riling make (water) turbulent or muddy and unclear and filthy and unclean and unholy they that are drunk are in the dark and night
fighting and For those who sleep do their sleeping at night, and those who get drunk get drunk ... and sleep is only for such who are in darkness, and are children of the night
and what do they do judge and make war with everyone and thing that does not agree with them
Now compare the Bride as the city in Rev 21 and there came to me one of the 7 angels [messengers ] which has the 7 viles full of the 7 last plagues and talked with me saying
Come here I will show you the Bride the Lambs wife
and He carried me away in the SPIRIT
to a great and High Mountain and showed me the great City the Holy Jerusalem descending out of heaven from GOD
Having the glory of God and Her Light was like unto a STONE MOST PRECIOUS[ JESUS CHRIST IS THE CHIEF CORNER STONE ] even like Jasper Stone clear as Crystal
now John also was carried away in the Spirit seeing the woman on the scarlet beast in Rev 17 and as we compare them we can see the difference here and the Woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet color and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication
and for me , these precious things are stolen belonging to God they are all whom were sent throughout the ages with warnings and were for her to repent of her evil doings but she never would
So the warning to any one is TO COME OUT OF HER MY PEOPLE unless you also receive her plagues , it is the worldly earth systems of religious ties that bind us to her and kills those under the law as she just gets bigger and more powerful , those thinking they are doing God a service by KILLING
and this can be taken as literal as well as spiritual in the new born babes in Christ .. Saul/ Paul is our primes example of those not knowing the law of sin and death and the Law of Christ is Life
and God bless Paul for expounding on the differences because his own experience gave us both ways of looking into it from one end of the spectrum to the other one ,,,
He was Judge and executioner to the new ones born of God and they died in faith and Jesus come to Saul / Paul in the Spirit and told him He was persecuting HIM !! Those new spiritual born's were of Jesus Christ own body !! and Saul / Paul was blinded by Jesus LIGHT and did come out of Babylon
Babylon was here from Gen 11 building Her earthly Kingdom and rule . the beast to me has always been the earthly and sensual and devilish wisdom and will worship of mankind
Fulfilling the prophecy that those whom see will be blinded and those whom are blind will see the truth = Jesus in Isaiah 32;3 John 9;39 John 12 ;40 and 2Corinth 4;4;
and as much as many cannot understand the Spiritual aspect of it , to me its about being Spiritual creatures in Christ and by the SPIRIT OF TRUTH will all these things come to pass by the WORD OF GOD /TRUTH .
and all will be partakers of this mighty work of God one way or the other
