Revelations 3:3 Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.
So what is being said here?
“IF you keep in your mind what you have received and heard and hold fast …(to those things) and ARE repentant, than I will NOT come to you as a thief in the night- and you WILL know what hour I will come upon you”
Matthew 24:42-44 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
Matthew 25:13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
Mark 13:33 Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.
1st Timothy 6:20 O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called:
The Bible says that man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the God of Israel. We don’t need anyone, not even science to tell us about anything regarding the beginning of time or the end of time (as we know it) because it is ALL WRITTEN in the Bible. Our Creator declared the end from the beginning.
Isaiah 46:9-10 Remember the former things of old: for I am El, and there is none else; I am Elohim, and there is none like Me, Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all My pleasure:
No matter what science says or tries to say, the word of Elohim endures for ever and He will do what He say’s that He will do. And, just like it was in the beginning, so it will be the same in the end. The earth began in darkness and it will end in darkness. However, when He comes, it will be just in the nick of time and His coming will be so bright and His love will be the light of the world.
Paul shares with us these words: “Hold fast the form of sound words, which thou hast heard of me, in faith and love which is in Christ Jesus.” 2nd Timothy 1:13
In other words, don’t let anyone tell you or preach to you ‘anything’ that is contrary to the written word of our Creator. His word stands alone and defends itself. Yahwey alone knows what pleases Him and His words are full of the instructions of how to go about pleasing Him. If He did not give a revelation of Himself, the inventions of man, in religious things, would be endless error, involving itself in contortions of unlimited confusion. The false teachings and false doctrine were there in the time when Yahushua walked the streets of Jerusalem and they are still here today.
The God of creation gives, in His mercy to man, a form of sound words or doctrines; a perfect plan and sketch of the original building; fair and well defined outlines of every thing which concerns the present and eternal welfare of man. Faith lays hold on Yahushua HaMashiac , and obtains that love by which every precept is cheerfully and effectually obeyed. It is the indwelling of the Holy Spirit that helps to keep us from being robbed of what has been committed to our soul and deposited to us. But it is up to us to keep our faith aligned with what the written word say’s.
What was it we are told in the book of the revealing of the coming of Yahushua? “Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. Revelation 3:11 Sounds like to me that there will come along folks who are pretty good at twisting TRUTH and making it sound as if we do not have all of what the Bible tells us that we have. We do have the availability of the gift’s of the Spirit, by the same Spirit. Do not let anyone convince you other-wise. Hold fast to what you know to be true…..
Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked. I counsel thee to buy of Me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they? And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to Him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and His wife hath made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. And He saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God. (Re 16:15, 2Co 5:3, Re 3:18, Re 7:13 -14, Re 19:7-9)
Please take close notice… The word says that If we do not hold fast to what we have, it is He, Yahushua who will come if we do not keep watch, He will come as a thief and not as a friend to comfort and refresh, but as a thief. It is up to US to hold fast to what we have.
I am pretty sure that we are to do this … with our FAITH… We really do gotta hold on to TRUTH because it is that which MAKES US FREE.
Now therefore arise, O YAHWEY Elohim, rise to Your rest; O YAHWEY Elohim, Your priests are clothed with salvation and Your saints rejoice in goodness. ~ 2nd Chronicles 6:41
