Watch as the Most High reveals to us his safe haven out of the midst of Babylon.
We are aware of persons who lack understanding, thinking claiming we are in error because of a few verses. For example, Matthew 24:31…
Is Matthew 24:31 the only gathering of his people?
Mat 24:31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
Here are the different groups who will be gathered. It will not only be his elect who will be gathered.
1. His elect are the 144,000 redeemed from among men
2. He will also have people scattered all over who reject the beast system (the remnant of Yasharal who Satan wars with in Rev 12:17)
3. He will have the wheat and the tares in the wilderness to be separated as when we came out of Egypt (Ezek 20:33-38).
4. Gentiles who join to Yasharal (Isaiah 14:1-2, Amos 9:11-12) will be gathered with his people. These are not the elect spoken of in Matthew 24:31.
That is why in Matthew 25 it tells us of him separating the sheep from the goat. If he was only going to gather the elect, who are the sheep he will gather in Matthew 25 when he sits on his throne?
Mat 25:32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
Mat 25:33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.
Mat 25:34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
ANOTHER IS JEREMIAH 29:14
Jer 29:14 And I will be found of you, saith the LORD: and I will turn away your captivity, and I will gather you from all the nations, and from all the places whither I have driven you, saith the LORD; and I WILL BRING YOU AGAIN INTO THE PLACE WHENCE I CAUSED YOU TO BE CARRIED AWAY CAPTIVE.
Is the west coast of Africa where we were CAUSED to be carried away captive? No. The operative word is CAUSED.
Now it has not been disproved that the children of Yasharal were scattered in 70 AD across the continent of Africa. Where were they scattered from?
Zion! The several slave ports are not the holy mountain of Zion.
It is for the iniquity of Zion that they were eventually caused to be carried away captive (Lam 4:22). Hence we will be returned to Zion, not to the slave port from which we were shipped. Proof?
Psa_14:7 Oh that THE SALVATION OF ISRAEL WERE COME OUT OF ZION! when YAHUAH bringeth back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.
See? YAHUAH shall bring back the captivity of his people OUT OF ZION! Zion is the place where we are caused to be captive because it is transgression against his holy mountain that caused us to go into captivity after being scattered in 70 AD. More proof?
Luk 21:24 And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.
This was referring to 70 AD. Zion is where we were caused to go into captivity. The transatlantic slave trade is just a part of the process.That is why:
Jer 50:4 In those days, and in that time, saith YAHUAH, the children of Israel shall come, they and the children of Judah together, going and weeping: they shall go, and seek YAHUAH their Aluah.
Jer 50:5 THEY SHALL ASK THE WAY TO ZION with their faces thitherward, saying, Come, and let us join ourselves to YAHUAH in a perpetual covenant that shall not be forgotten.
That is what we are doing, asking our way to Zion, removing out of Babylon like the he goats before the flock.
Jer_30:3 For, lo, the days come, saith YAHUAH, that I will bring again the captivity of my people Israel and Judah, saith YAHUAH: and I WILL CAUSE THEM TO RETURN TO THE LAND THAT I GAVE TO THEIR FATHERS, and they shall possess it.
So the return will be to the original land, not to where we were shipped from. We were scattered from the original land, shipped from a different place, and will be returned to the original land from which we were caused to go into captivity.
