We are to expect this to continue...many
will step forward claiming to be the annointed
one...Yeshua Messiah. In fact, many in this is:
4183 'Pol-oos', abundant, common, long, plenteous,
straightly, largely. You can see that there is no
end to the possible list of those claiming to be
Christ. I think we need to be sure we are not
'counting' the antichrists, rather remembering the
warnings which say 'MANY' shall come in my name.
When we 'hear' (191 from 'akouo' come to
the ears, be reported, understand) of wars and rumors of
wars we are not to be frightened. I hope everyone
knows when an update for this kind of news is posted here
to the group that it is to point out what is coming
to pass as it is written in God's Word. In fact, in the
words 'must needs' comes from the word 1163 'dei' (die)
which means to 'behove, ought, should, must' and is from
the primary verb: 'deo' which means, 'bind, be in bonds,
knit, tie, wind. We are seeing the truth of God's
Word knitted together with everyday events coming to
Beginning with the words 'shall rise' in
this we are given a clue as to something to watch
for. It translates to 1453 'egeiro' which means 'to
waken', rouse, literally from sleep, from obscurity,
ruins or nonexistence. So we have a sleeping nation
coming alive (rising). This verse also tells us
that this along with earthquakes (throughout or
distribution with intensity) many places (btw, the
translation for 'place' in this has several meanings, but
the first is 'coast', I thought that was
interesing). But these are the 'beginnings' of
sorrows ('odin' pain, grief), and we certainly see these
things on the increase.
Beware, is what the words 'take heed'
translate to from the word 991 'blepo'. So
what is that for us? Let's look at the word
'beware'....what does it mean? It means: 'to be on
one's guard' 'to be weary of', 'to take care of' as
in 'beware of dog' :) Now, the very next thing which is
written is: 'for they shall deliver you up'.
Now this has another interesting
translation to ponder... 'they shall lead you'...this
word 'lead' is 71 'ago' , a primary verb; properly,
to lead, to bring, drive, (reflexively) go, (specially)
pass (time). We see that it is initiated by their
lead at a specific time. My own thoughts on this
are that we are to 'beware of [dog]' until that time... I
really see Christ warning us to be wiser than the serpent
within these last two verses. We know we are not to
anxiously prepare anything beforehand, and we are not to
'revolve in the mind' (premeditate) the words we are to
speak but will be given what we are to say (utter) as the
Holy Spirit speaks through (bestows upon) us.
Betray in this is 3860
'paradidomi' 'give over', 'yield up', 'intrust',
'surrender', 'transmit', 'put in prison',
'RECOMMEND'. Those nearest and dearest to us will
betray us. 'Rise up' in this is not the same as in
the 8th verse, it is 1881 'epanistamai', here it means:
'to stand up on, as in attack', or 'rise up
against'. We are to understand that they will be
used to deliver us up. This is difficult to want to
believe. I think we need to know that this is
talking to every one of us...and 'not the other
guy'. This will be an attempt to sway us into
following the false one, 'bowing' to him will be the
temptation to please those delivering us up whom we
love...our own children, and our own parents. We
talk boldly now of how we will not bow, but this is a
reminder to look this one square in the face before you
are brought to the synagogue. This is indeed
speaking to us as a real warning, and gives us the
opportunity to prepare for deep and almost unbearable
We know slew foot is the desolator.
His names, Abaddon and Apollyon both mean
'destroyer'. Let him that readeth understand!
When the abomination of desolation occurs,
it will be a very short time to go...no preparation for
anything will be necessary.
We are to remain waiting and watching for
the true Christ, and to keep our eyes on the events as he
has foretold us. To be 'harvested in winter' means
out of season. We know about the 'untimely figs'
(green and unripe bitter fruit) are those fallen angels
and slew foot coming to harvest the world out of season.
We will endure a tribulation greater than
anything man has ever encountered since the beginning of
this Earth Age.
This is how much he loves us. He
only gives us what we can bear.
Remember, MANY false Christs will come.
Added to this we have 'false
prophets'...(religious imposters) leading people astray
with their false miracles.
1948 was the year Israel became
established as a nation (the planting of the Fig Tree),
so we know that this generation is in the latter days of
the 'watch' because those born in 1948 are now 51 years
There are three types for the length of a
I hope this study helped you understand
the watch, and how it applies to you.
