From: Sophereth at Kirjath Sepher
To: those that are asking from Matthew 24. Luke 29. Master, when shall these things be?
. …and what sign will there be when these things shall come to pass?
. ….and He said: take heed that ye be not deceived. take heed that no man deceive you. for many shall come…..
. …..so likewise ye, when ye shall see these things come to pass, know ye that the KINGDOM OF GOD is nigh at hand. verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away: but MY WORDS SHALL NOT PASS AWAY.
. the KINGDOM, the RULE OF GOD is nigh at hand.
. we are that generation. we have seen the fig tree blossom.
. the FIRST SIGN that He gave them was: DECEPTION! then the warning: take heed that ye be not deceived. take heed that no man deceive you.
. then He said: heaven and earth shall pass away: but MY WORDS SHALL NOT PASS AWAY.
. His WORD is the ONLY lasting thing. HE IS THE WORD!
. if the VERY WORD OF GOD HIMSELF is not LIVING and ABIDING in our heart and mind and mouth, constantly and consistently, ongoing, we will be deceived. Romans 10:1-10.
. the WORD OF GOD is our only compass. our only safeguard. our only guidance. our only direction.
. it is imperative that we know what His WORD says and it is imperative that we UNDERSTAND what His WORD says.
. God is going to do a “new” thing. Isaiah 42:9. 43:19. is there really any “new” thing under the sun? isn’t it ALL! what He has told us in His WORD from the beginning? hasn’t He already said it and caused it to be written by the prophets? is it not ALL! already written? doesn’t it ALL!, every “new” thing, every “new” move of God, every “new” revival, have to be according to His WORD, and in agreement with His WORD, that is already written? isn’t it “new” because we haven’t heard it yet? isn’t it “new” because we haven’t been taught it yet? isn’t it “new” because it hasn’t been time for it yet?
. Daniel 12. Matthew 13. Revelation 5. KJV and Amplified. please read these very important, timely scriptures. at the time of the end, at the consummation of the age, when the Lion of the tribe of Judah prevails to open the book and loose the seven seals thereof (could it be the book of Daniel?), Daniel and Matthew see TEACHERS rising up and giving forth the light of the WORD, like stars.
. Daniel 12:3. Amplified. and the TEACHERS and those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament, and those who turn many to righteousness (to uprightness and right standing with God) shall give forth light like the stars forever and ever.
. Matthew 13:52. Amplified. He said to them, Therefore every TEACHER and interpreter of the Sacred Writings (scripture, the WORD) who has been instructed about and trained for the kingdom of heaven and has become a disciple is like a householder who brings forth out of his storehouse treasure that is “new” (italics mine) and treasure that is old (the fresh as well as the familiar).

. see the post from October 1,2015. The Duties of the Priesthood.
. see the post from October 1,2015. Go Ye Therefore and Teach.
. see the post from September 16, 2015. …as the Sound of Many Waters.
. one of the duties of the Priesthood was, and is, and will be to TEACH the people.
. Jesus said: Go ye therefore and TEACH all nations…..TEACHING them to observe…..
. His TEACHING will fall like the rain….like the former and latter rain….
. take heed that ye be not deceived. KNOW THE WORD!
. let no man deceive you. KNOW THE WORD!
