Summary: Yeshua is returning and the focus of His children will shift from this temporary life to kingdom that is coming.
Shalom, shalom; peace, peace in the name of Yeshua. This is Crystal Sharpe and welcome to the Ancient Scrolls program.
I do have a website called Ancientscrollsonline.com. I do post prophetic dreams, visions, and words, and these programs and transcripts are posted every week on my website: ancientscrollsonline.com.
Shema Deuteronomy 6
Shema, O Israel, the LORD God, the LORD is One.
You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.
The earth is the LORD’s and the fullness thereof; the world and those who dwell therein.
Numbers 10:35, Psalm 68:1
Arise, O Lord, and let Your enemies be scattered; and let those who hate You flee before you.
You are the King of the universe, king over heaven and earth. Your mercy endures throughout all generations. We thank You for Your Words of eternal life. I pray Your breath of life will flow through Your people — the remnant, and upon the rest send upon them the Spirit of repentance. It is required, according to the messages given to the seven churches in Revelation chapters 2-3, for believers to be overcomers. The word places emphasis on being overcomers. Revelation 21:7, He says: He who overcomes shall inherit all things and I will be his God and he shall be My son.
It appears we have entered the time of the separation of the wheat and tares, we pray we will not enter into temptation, but to stand firm against the tyrants and despots, against the anti-christ spirit.
We pray against every evil design and purpose of the demonic realm. We have been petitioning that Your righteousness and justice will reign in the earth. Release Your angelic warriors to war against the principalities and powers, rulers of the darkness and spiritual wickedness in high places. Push back the darkness, overwhelm the enemies that hate You with mass confusion, and paranoia.
We desire You and Your ways. We love Your commandments; we love Your Son. Blessed be the name of the LORD above all names. In Yeshua’s name, amen.
I thought to not do a program for a while, but changed my mind and will continue to do so for a few more weeks.
I know that I have stated on numerous occasions that we are at the end of this age. Not only have I been saying it, but others are saying it as well. We are seeing prophecies being fulfilled.
We are at the end of the age and it will become more stressful as time progresses and we see more of the Word of God being fulfilled.
This life is showing it is more temporal every day. Several times you all have heard me say that the patriarchs did three things: they built altars, dug wells and lived in tents. The tent was symbolic of living in the covering of the flesh, that is a temporary dwelling for the spirit. Also, three things were given to Israel by God: The Law/Torah, the land of Canaan and Olam Haba which is the world to come.
The book of Revelation is clear the saints that are persecuted are those who follow the commandments of God and have the testimony of Yeshua. Also, those who practice His Torah will enter into the Olam Haba, eternity. Revelation 12:17, 14:12; 22:14
Blessed are those who do His commandments (in Hebrew the Word is mitz-vo-tav, righteousness and justice), that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates of the city.
The Tree of Life is not in the Messianic Age, of course, but is reserved for those in eternity. This is the reason the Tree of Life is not in the Messianic Age, because Zechariah 14 teaches us there will be people left of the nations that will go into the Messianic Age. Those who had died in Yeshua will be resurrected and those Christians that are left will be ‘caught up’ and will be priests in the kingdom; they will have incorruptible bodies.
Those of the nations will go into the physical kingdom of Messiah and He will teach the nations His Torah. They will still have corruptible flesh and cannot eat from the Tree of Life in their fallen flesh. Because death will still be an enemy in the Messianic Age, people will still die. They will have longer lives, depending on their having to observe/practice the Torah of righteousness and justice. The corruptible flesh cannot eat from the Tree of Life.
Like in the Garden, Adam and Eve were exiled so they would not eat from the Tree of Life and live forever in their fallen state.
The Messianic Age will not have the devil to contend with, still people will have to deal with their flesh. As long as people dwell in the flesh, they cannot eat from the Tree of Life and therefore it is reserved for eternity.
So, let’s go back to what I was saying or where I was going with this, that we should no more focus on the temporary elements of this world that are futile. At one time it was alright to pursue making our own little kingdoms, having houses, vacations, and play toys like jet-skis, boats, to enjoy at the lakes and beaches, and winter places like Aspen, we have gone past that now. We are at the end of the age and the kingdom to be focused on is the kingdom of God coming. Our attention should be now on how to be overcomers. I am speaking to those Christians that have a desire to follow the Lord no matter the circumstances or situations of life.
We have been this year in a most serious and critical place in history and prophecy. We are walking out prophecy. What we do from now on will have great significance and importance in the spiritual and physical realm.
There is a book I have in my collection that is called A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens. The opening paragraph reads like this, and I do believe it is applicable to today: “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way—in short, the period was so far like the present period that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison.
This passage suggests an age of radical opposites taking place. The book is set around the time of the French Revolution, moving between London and Paris across the English Channel. It tells a story of contrasts and comparisons between London and Paris during the French revolution.
It explores the societal conditions that lead to collapse, immorality, and ruin, and the individuals in the story that are struggling against forces larger than themselves.
I am going to go back and read the one line: . . . the period was so far like the present period. The French Revolution was 1789, and Dickens wrote this book in 1859; and he was quite capable of capturing the dysfunction of the time of the French Revolution and not just that time, but in comparison to the period in which he lived; and it speaks to every generation, that every generation will confront major issues, or dilemmas, in which individuals and or a nation will have difficult choices to make.
At the end of the age, it will be no different. I read, see, hear on YouTube concerning those individuals in the nations, and in this nation as well, I can sense this struggle against this evil empire; their resistance to the Global Order that is embraced by the Mainstream Media, the politicians, the pharmaceutical industry, and even ministers have surrendered to this entity; but not every individual has surrendered.
We have entered a time of testing, and passing through a crucible. This is the opportunity given us to prepare ourselves to meet the Lord, for He is coming and He is bringing His reward with Him. By the end of this, everyone will figure out who the tares are and who are the wheat to go into the Marriage Feast of the Lamb.
For a couple of nights, I was telling my husband about this, I have had had disturbing dreams. The first dream, I told my husband that we must prepare because I believed a great disturbance was coming and he agreed. So, we make ourselves to the city and somehow find ourselves in a structure that was several stories high. While there, we heard the sound of alarms going off. I heard the word: WAR! I really could not grasp why I was hearing this. I was trying to discern which war—spiritual, or a physical war of some sort. We were then trying to escape the structure, but doors were sliding shut to prevent our leaving. I felt hopelessness as I realized we were trapped. There were no windows, no door knobs, and everything was metal; but suddenly the doors opened and we were able to flee.
The next night I dreamed of ironing out my military uniform. It was a new uniform with a new design compared to what I had worn some years ago. I liked the design of it. I was preparing it to wear and then I showed up for the place I was assigned to and it was an Ordnance Company that handled munitions. I began to pack necessary items for the company to begin the process of being mobilized.
I am thinking that perhaps there could be some challenges ahead and not just for me but for the nation. The alarms sounding in the dream was really disturbing.
Every time I dream of preparing my military uniform, I experience some major event which I can only overcome by praying continuously.
I do not have perfect understanding of the tomorrows, but I do know who has all the tomorrows, and that is the LORD. He already has issued His plans and from His Word we know He wins. He is a winner.
What ever which we find ourselves, I know a breakthrough is coming, a revival is coming, a pouring out of His Spirit for the latter days.
The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.
Therefore, I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
May you be strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy
Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance
The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.
God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.
I am at the end of the program
Remember to walk by faith and not by sight. Do two things: love and forgive. Ask God to cleanse you from all unrighteousness every day. Keep your spiritual garments clean from spots, wrinkles and blemishes. Love God and love your neighbor.
