Kingdom Betrayed #54

“Y’shua .. was troubled in spirit, and testified, “Most certainly I tell you that one of you will betray me.” Our Messiah who was at peace even when His talmidim were in fear for their lives was “troubled in spirit” by the betrayal of Judas Iscariot. Betrayal is, perhaps, the most troubling situation that ever arises among Messiah’s own. Not only was Messiah to suffer betrayal, but He also foretold widespread betrayal of His own during this final generation: “You shall be betrayed also by parents and brothers and kinsmen and friends. And they will cause some of you to be put to death. And you shall be hated by all for My name’s sake.” This study of the betrayal of the King and His Kingdom by Judas Iscariot is meant to fortify us to deal with widespread betrayal foretold for the days shortly ahead. Y’shua’s emissaries / apostles were not ready for the evil day. Don’t let that happen to you! (John 13:21; Luke 21:16+17)

Kingdom Curses #46

“Kingdom Curses” is admittedly a strange theme, since the Kingdom is meant to bless all mankind. Nevertheless, in Biblical Hebraic teaching blessings for some nearly always involve curses for others. Accordingly, in Matthew 23 we find Messiah cursing the chief priests and scribes for their crimes against the Kingdom. He says; “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because you shut up the Kingdom of Heaven against men; for you don’t enter in yourselves, neither do you allow those who are entering in to enter.” In a scathing rebuke He calls the Jerusalem leaders such things as hypocrites, blind guides, blind fools, serpents, offspring of vipers and murderers of the prophets and the righteous. More than that, He pronounces curses of woe, destruction and the lake of fire upon them! Many find such words shocking coming from the mouth of our gentle Messiah. Finally, you will understand these words in their true context in this teaching. (Matthew 23:14)
