The Second Coming: Getting Ready

by John and Ruth Greene

Divine CounselorHow do you get ready for the Second Coming of Yahshua [Jesus] the Messiah? The first step is to accept the Master as your personal Savior. (Matthew 27) He is more than a teacher. He is your Savior. He gave His life up freely, through much pain and sacrifice. You may say you believe, but ask yourself again anyway. Don’t be offended, just examine your heart. Take your time and don’t accept a lie. Which ‘Christ’ do you serve? Do you serve a Messiah of your own making or a ‘luciferian cosmic christ’ that has been fobbed off in some denominations and other religions? Are you living a life of of self-examination and truth? What does your life say about who you serve? Are you actually set apart to your Heavenly Father? That is your fruit, a reflection of your heart. (Matthew 6:19-24) Take YHWH’s Spirit into your heart and ask His Holy Spirit [Sanctified, Set Apart Spirit] to change your life, to help you become a new man through Messiah and Holy Spirit. (John 14:16-17; Colossians 3:10; Ephesians 4:24; 2 Corinthians 5:17) Ask Him to forgive and cleanse you as you forgive others. Yahshua [Jesus] came to set the captives free. Are you free? (Luke 4:18; Matthew 11:5; Isaiah 49:9, 61:1) Living life through obedience to His Spirit is the beginning of salvation. The fact is that you never need to be spiritually separated from YHWH again when you abide in Him, an idea that is foreign to the world.(“Disciple: The Pattern of Your Life“; “Disciple: Live Your Belief“; “Disciple: Are You Bearing Fruit?“; “Lifestyle: Where Do You Place Your Trust?“; “YHWH’s Track of Righteousness“)

Growing spiritually to maturity is an essential process that many pastors and denominations don’t foster because it takes power away from them. Could your spiritual maturity be suffering because of selfish leadership? Jealousy and envy are tools of the demons that continually fracture and divide. Keep in mind that your relationship with YHWH and Messiah through the Holy Spirit is all about you, for salvation is always one man or woman at a time, justified through righteousness in faith. Spiritual maturity, continually seeking after YHWH’s truth is vital to personal salvation and continued relationship. (John 3:16-21; “Messiah & the Tool of Envy“; “A Mind of Envy and Competition“; “The Stronghold of Anger“)

To start and continue spiritual growth, the Bible is vital. A workbook or magazine is not a substitute. Read and study your Bible daily. Ask questions. Ask YHWH to open your heart to a deeper understanding of what you read as you continually seek Him. (“Spiritual Growth or Spiritual Death“)

BibleIf it is possible, become a part of a local body of believers that rightly divides the Word of YHWH, similar to what we cover online at this website. This assists all to grow in Messiah together. If you don’t have a local gathering of disciples, then you have a true purpose in your locale. Even though we live in the last days in a time of great wickedness, the interaction of faithful obedient disciples of the Messiah will help you to mature spiritually. Remember that no substitute exists for Bible truth. Anything that stunts your spiritual growth or interrupts your prayer life may cause you to make major spiritual and life missteps which could imperil your trust and faith in YHWH, and along with that, your salvation. (Matthew 28:18-19; “Wavering Between Two Opinions“; “What “Church Growth” is Really About“; “Understanding Sin“; )

brotherly-love-in-familyLast, but not least is learning to give of yourself, especially to brothers and sisters in Messiah that are known and established. This isn’t about money, but about all matters of life. Allowing time for others and making healthy friends and relationships is easily forgotten in the modern world, but the wise find time. Your time, your energies, your talent, your attention, your caring and concern are all part of real friendship through the Master. Look for opportunities to interact and to build friendships in Messiah. YHWH, Elohim of Hosts, will bless you abundantly as you learn to interact in healthy ways and give to others what YHWH has given to you. In this way, the overflowing and abundance of your Heavenly Father is increased by all through all. (“Freedom in Messiah Despite the World“; “Freedom from Spiritual Bondage“)

“For YHWH so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
John 3:16, RNKJV
Heavenly Father,
Thank you for sending the Messiah, your only begotten Son to be my Savior. I believe in Him and have made this belief the center of my life. Because of this, by faith I have everlasting life! Thank you! I repent of my sins and of my past, freely admitting that I have fallen short of Your glory. I look fully forward to you in my life and commit my life to You. Thank You YHWH, my Heavenly Father for setting me free in the name of your Son Yahshua [Jesus]. Amen.
genuine-articleYou will never enjoy true freedom through the Messiah and power of the Holy Spirit unless you read and absorb the Bible in prayer and trust. You will never know this freedom until you experience it for yourself. Get to know your Heavenly Father, His Son and allow the Holy Spirit to work in your life. The Holy Spirit is your teacher, your Holy Counselor that lives in you to help you learn about the truth of YHWH and His spiritual gifts.
Satan does not want you to have the excellence of YHWH in your life. People pray for protection and want to be taken care of, but often do little in growing close to Him. The world, your husband, your wife, your family, your government do not build your trust in YHWH or free you from spiritual bondage. Your church or your pastor cannot save you. Education, power and money will not free you, but only the Word of your Heavenly Father. Salvation is a daily walk, an act of love for yourself and for those around you, not a one-time event that centers only on you. Make the Word of YHWH your own, your very life!
YHWH is Yahweh, the covenant name of your Heavenly Father.
The names Yahshua and Yahushua are original language names for Jesus,
He is often referred simply as the Messiah or Master.
