Behold, the Messiah (part 2)

YAHSHUA, the firstborn of the dead, the Prince of the kings of the earth, who was and who is to come, to Him be the glory and the power and the majesty and the dominion throughout the ages and forever and ever. Amen. Behold, He is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see Him, even those who pierced Him; and all the tribes of the earth shall gaze upon Him and beat their breast and mourn and lament over Him; He is the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End; He who is and Who was and is to come, the Almighty. About sixty years later He appeared to John in a vision on the island of Patmos as a Man clothed with a robe which reached to His feet and with a girdle of gold about His breast; His head and His hair were white like white wool, as snow and His eyes like a flame of fire; His feet glowed like burnished bronze as it is refined in a furnace, and His voice was like the sound of many waters…from His mouth there came forth a sharp two-edged sword, and His face was like the sun shining in full power at midday. When John saw Him, he fell at His feet as if dead. Messiah, however, laid His right hand on him and said, do not be afraid! I am the first and the last, and the Ever-living One. I died, but see, I am alive forevermore.  I possess the keys of death and Hades.

John saw heaven opened and behold, a white horse! The One Who was riding it is called the Faithful and True, and He passes judgment and wages war in righteousness. His eyes are like a flame of fire and on His head are many kingly crowns, and He has a title inscribed which He alone knows or can understand. And on His garment and on His Thigh He has a name inscribed, KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS. The Prophet Daniel saw in the night visions, and behold, on the clouds of the heavens came One like the Son of Man. And He came to the Ancient of Days and was presented before Him. And there was given Messiah dominion and glory and kingdom, that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion which shall not pass away, and His kingdom is one which shall not be destroyed.

The Son of Man (Messiah) will appear in the sky, and all the tribes of the earth will mourn and beat their breasts and lament in anguish, and they will see the Son of Man (Messiah) coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. His coming will be just as the lightning flashes from the east and shines and is seen as far as the west, so will the coming of the Son of Man (Messiah) be.

Messiah alone has immortality and lives in unapproachable light, Whom no man has ever seen or can see. Unto Him be honor and everlasting power and dominion. Amen.

Behold, He stands at the door and knocks; if anyone hears and listens and heeds His voice and opens the door He will come into him and will eat with him and he will eat with Him. My friend, there will be a time when He will no longer knock at your door. When He comes back, He will come as the King of all the earth and as a Judge. Hear, listen, heed and open the door of your heart to Him now, while He is knocking. When He turns His back toward you it will be too late for you to repent and receive Him. Many will see Him and tremble with fear; they will call to the mountains and the rocks, Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him Who sits on the throne and from the deep-seated indignation and wrath of the Lamb (Rev. 6:15-16).  They will receive their sentence of condemnation, but you do not have to be in that situation if you accept Messiah in your heart. Those who have accepted Him will see Him and rejoice in His presence. They will be called into the presence of Messiah through a loud cry of summons, with the shout of an archangel, and with the blast of the trumpet of God. They will be caught up to heaven and through an eternity of the eternities, they will be with Messiah their Lord and Savior. There is plenty room in God’s plan of salvation for you. How shall (you) escape if (you) neglect and refuse to pay attention to such a great salvation? For it was declared at first by the Lord, and it was confirmed to us and proved to be real and genuine by those who personally heard [Him speak] (Heb. 2:3). You can face Him as your Messiah, or as a Judge. Which One do you prefer to meet?

I have been committed to teaching the truth of the Word of God beginning with Trans World Radio on Bonaire, N.A and Swaziland, Africa (1969-1980), then through churches in the United States in both English and Portuguese and then through ministry in Israel (2005-2006). This ministry continues through local Bible studies and outreach to the world via the internet. I have written a book about my life from that of an orphan in Brazil to missionary in 5 countries.
