What does “End Times” mean in scripture.

The scripture attracts many kinds of people and feeds them all. Like the spies who visited Rehab who had the wrong intentions and she sent them out another way. So too scripture has dead ends meant to distract and detour the spies and the disingenuous who have other intentions. We are speaking about end time seekers as holding the “last days” and “end times prophecies” as of primary importance of their faith of something yet to come. Unfortunately for them, like the spies with Rehab, they too get sent on a proverbial “wild goose chase”. This is how it works
End time seekers are drawn to the fascination of the end of the world, where by they get raptured out of saved by some other means instead of the cross, which is quite different then the end of the law era or their concept of a last days, end times modern day Jews believing in another Jerusalem, to accommodate a second coming saving Jesus, which is a name that comes from “Yehshuah, a name that means “savior” of one who has already saved. Technically “savior and Messiah mean the same thing and is not a name but a title that has to do with a task. And however much it is true that God already sent His Son into the world  to “save”, refers to a task that He already did as evidenced by the cross. But for those in the know, He is no longer saving them but takes on a different role. The book of His Revelation describes Him like this. “11 Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. 12 His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself. 13 He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. 14 And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses. 15 Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. 16 And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name (rather a title) written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.
AlThe names/titles of Joshua, Yah-shuah, Jesus, Savior and Christ are all interchangeable because they mean the same thing. It is really unnecessary to say, Jesus Christ, savior, healer and redeemer because those are all variants of the same task He already accomplished.
So with the Son of God, “whose name no one knew but He Himself”, has already come to save, to go back and take His seat with the Father where He was before He went to work to save humanity saying “to as many as received But m, to them He gave power (and the where with all) to become His children”. Meaning all the tasks necessary to save all of humanity start to finish, beginning to end, have been accomplished or He wouldn’t be able to join the Father in Glory, nor could we, but we can ( .) Why? Because it is still being played out today. And because He said “It is finished”. His task of saving has reached its conclusion and completion at the cross, to never need to perform another saving act again, ever! Or He in truth He would not have finished His task to sit back down with the Father, but He did. As it is written in the book to the Hebrews 9.26 “26 He then would have had to suffer often since the foundation of the world; but now, once at the end of the ages (that starts with the acknowledgement of the cross), He has appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself.
Yes, He was sent once at the end of the Law, the prophets, and the end of Jews and the earthen Jerusalem associated with them, to put away sin once and for all and forever, literally. Why? Because eternal entities do NOT have to repeat themselves as though they do in part or fix temporarily. That is why they can enter their rest meaning retirement. And as the Elect of God, we learn to join them there as well, which is the conclusion of the gospel. For us to be on standby for the final call to put an end to creation as is commonly known. (Hebrews 4.9)
This brings us to our topic of “end times events” and the study of scripture to feed that fascination, because that is all it is, a fascination without a real foundation. As we’ve already quoted that “God sent His Son into the world to save the world”, and started the end times. Meaning that the world is going to yield a harvest. Like from James 5.7 (See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, until He receives the early and latter rain (harvests). “For the farmer of the earth is waiting until He reaps the harvest from the former and latter rains, indicating a harvest of those who are resurrected , meaning raised back up from the fall, and not an “end times saving” event because “saving” has already happened with the cross. Next time He comes is to shut down this creation when the harvest is over as seen here from 2 Peter 3.10 “10 But the (FINAL) day of the Lord (and the closure of end times) will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up. 11 Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, 12 looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat? 13 Because of this we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.
And do not waste our time trying to figure out the series of events that lead up to this final scenario! Why? Because we too have entered our rest as knowing that is a fruitless faithless task.
But many at this point would ask, what about the end times Jews that has so many people’s attention? To this we say, let us not forget the warning in Thessalonians that addresses this saying “7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way. 8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming. 9 The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, 10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion (of another saving called end times that glorifies the Jews), that they should believe the lie, 12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.  Meaning that only those who know that the Jews “end times” happened when Christ expired them with the law and the prophets of “What shall befall you in your last days and  will not fall for this “end times”disillusion propped up by old worn out already used dead and expired scripture to do so.
And if you haven’t received the assurance from our Heavenly Father that you are an Elect, you will want to stay with us because you may have to shed some baggage before our Heavenly Father gives you this testimony inside yourself of this completion. Yes, a testimony has been tested to insure that the hearer of the word, received it correct to pass the test, to have the correct testimony. Or keep wandering like the spies whom Rehab sent out another way.
Who or what is the God of Israel?
So how many end times are there. We will answer that about the Jews first and the first thing about the Jews is that in truth Jews claim the lineage of the tribe of Judah. Jew? Judah? Get it? Now then, Father Jacob, who is also called “Israel ” by God because he earned that title. God had said “you shall no longer be called Jacob, for you have wrestled with God as a man and have prevailed, therefore I shall call you Israel” because that is what Israel means. All names associated with the flesh relate to the ingredients in a character. And with a character change, comes a name change. Yes, later on Israel referred to the 12 tribes, and as time went on and each tribe was given a piece of land, people referred to that land as Israel, but technically Israel has always been about the people and not about the place they occupied physically because the physical are always the pictures.
With that being said, Israel had 12 sons, who later became 12 tribes, then they each received a portion of the land of Israel. But because the land is dependent upon a people, the people can exist without that land, but the land would take on a different people with a different culture that has nothing to do in this case with the promises of God given to a people. The new inhabitants would not be the recipients of God’s promise. And Jacob wrestled with God and prevailed, to earn the name Israel, because he demonstrated his new charecter by standing toe to toe with God. The name describes the new character of relating to God as an equal, showing us that he understood the gift given is equal to the gift giver. In these ones the Father is pleased to have them seated with Him. Have you received your new name?
So when we get to the end of Jacob/Israels physical life, where there would be the end of some things. Jacob/Israel said in Genesis 49 “Come my (12) children. Gather together I I will tell you what shall befall you in your latter years. Meaning, last years and days and even the proverbial favorite phrase “end times”, then you would no more. Yes, latter days means last days, end of days and end of times in this case for the 12 tribes and all their posterity would be merely history, Testimonies in a book of a bygone age. That the names of the twelve tribes would cease to be in existence, after the said events happen. And it already did.
Latter days meaning last days to be no more. No twisting of words, thought or the intent from Jacobs intent that we say that. That quite literally Father Jacob was telling them when their time as such would be over. To no longer be recognized as one of the twelve tribes. And we will jump right into the tribe of Yudah,Judah, Jewda and Jew because this is the one that contends for its right of existence today.
As we already quoted from Genesis 49.1 “what will befall you at your end. And with Judah/Jews, same people, or at least a shared right of existence as being one of the twelve tribes. And in Genesis 49.12+ it states emphatically, emphatically because scripture is unnegotiable. . “
“Judah/Jew, you are he whom your brothers shall praise;
Your hand shall be on the neck of your enemies;
Your father’s children (the other 11 tribes) shall bow down before you.
Judah is a lion’s whelp;
From the prey, my son, you have gone up.
He [c]bows down, he lies down as a lion;
And as a lion, who shall rouse him?
10 The [d]scepter shall not depart from Judah,
Nor a lawgiver from between his feet,
Until Shiloh comes;
And to Him shall be the obedience of the people.
11 Binding his donkey to the vine,
And his donkey’s colt to the choice vine,
He washed his garments in wine,
And his clothes in the blood of grapes.
12 His eyes are darker than wine,
And his teeth whiter than milk.
This was a prophecy of the time when Christ rode into Jerusalem making the statement that He was the last and final king. The King of kings and the Lord over all lords And that the time of the Jews was over. As we just read “what shall befall you in your latter days, last days and end times. And if this strikes you as preposterous, blasphemous or strange, why were they put out of business? And why would the New Covenant start this way? To expire the Law and the Prophets as having any forward, future purpose.
Remember He said of His body “destroy this temple and I will rebuild it in 3 days. And at mid day when He was on the cross, there was a violent earthquake that split the temple top to bottom so violent that the earth shook and quaked. You cannot build on a fault line. And as He cried out to the people “oh Jerusalem, the one who stoned and killed all those who were sent to her. Oh how I would’ve gathered you like a mother hen gathers her chicks but you were not (ever) willing. Now this destruction is upon you”. And as Christ told the disciples as they were magnifying that city from the hill and Christ said “I tell you there shall not be one stone left upon another that shall not be churned over”.  That no two bricks would be upon another, indicating the extent of the destruction.
With these scriptures in mind, you have to call to question, what is that place today claiming to be Jerusalem of old? At least if you rely on the scripture. And who are those today claiming to be Jews?
And back to our starting point of “let me tell you what shall befall (be your downfall) in your latter (last and end a of the age for the Jews”? Is scripture wrong? Was Christ wrong? Is there another God sponsored people called the Jews in another Jerusalem today that just so happened to find enough stones left one upon another to do business?
This is serious stuff because if you believe that shananagsn today, you may be siding with Satan. Does that sound too harsh? Well think about in Revelation it equates Sodom and Gomorrah with “the city where our Lord was slain”. Of whom Christ said to them  “you do the works of your Father the devil.
At what time EVER were the Jews not disobedient. Oh Jerusalem, the one who stoned and kills ALL those who are sent to her”? Do you really want to favor, support, or participate with that blasphemous repeat of those “brood if vipers sons of Satan always resisting the Almighty God?
In truth, they had their end times marked by Christ riding in on the goal of a colt, and some did recognize him and even starting waving the palm branches associated with the final levitical feast, because it was the final, grand finale.
And again from father Jacob) Israel, come my people and let me tell you what your end time will be. How can there be another Jew/Judah in another Jerusalem unless they are impostors and thieves. We say thieves because that’s what they are. They have re-purposed scripture to glorify another saving event associated with a second coming Christ to compete with God’s Heavenly Jerusalem come down of God from Heaven, to worship again in a brick structure when even when God gave the Ten Commands, He then went on to say “when you make a structure for me you shall not use hewn stone for in the day you use a tool on it, you have defiled it”. What part of Jerusalem today is made out of unhewn stone.
The reality here is that it is the true children of God who are ” living stones assembled together a habitation of God in the Spirit. Where two or mare are gathered in My name there I am in the middle.
And if that’s not enough of the truth to dis-way you from the lie. Wasn’t Abraham told that “I will make you the Father of many nations and people’s? That God from the beginning was not a respecter of persons. But that he desires everyone everywhere to lift their hands and worship God the Father without doubting? (Acts 4) And that the disciples were told not to leave that Jerusalem till they heard from ,him, then they were instructed to “go ye therefore teaching and preaching everything I’ve commanded you” started with “all tge law and the prophets were till john the Baptist, now the (real) Kingdom is preached snd all are entering”. Why because even we have the call to go and preach that “the Kingdom of God is at hand”. Meaning within reach any where anytime. This is God’s Kingdom that the carnal kingdom was given for instructive purposes only. It never was the real deal and why the old testament Jews were called children some 1200 times. Because they were kids playing toys. This is why Paul said “when zi was a child, I talked like a child, when I became a man I put away childish things” was him expiring the law in Himself. The Jews never did that, and for them to re-configure that conceptual place, the sacrifices of red heifers and such, ensures that you have a seat reserved in Hell with your name on it with the rest of the Jews who are literally Hell bent on stealing your affections from the Almighty God to give them the time of day, let alone your research and visitations with them. That is Spirit adultery to deify carnal places made of mans devising.
But for us? We know those who say they are Jews (God’s people) and are not but if the synagogue of Satan. Repent and believe the Gospel for the lie is ripe but the truth prevails. “And I heard a loud voice from Heaven saying “come out of her (earthen Jerusalem) lest you partake of her sins and receive of her judgments for God has called her to remembrance.
Their last days are past, your last days are here. We were warned that “wicked men and impostors would grow worse and worse deceiving and being deceived. This is not a message you want to walk away from. To repent just means to turn away from and our Father will send you the Holy Spirit.
And from the Revelation who said not to seal those prophecies because they were meant for them. That the Kingdom of God was “at hand” then and now but not always saying. Do not seal the words of the prophecy of this book, for the time is at hand. 11 He who is unjust, let him be unjust still; he who is filthy, let him be filthy still; he who is righteous, let him [e]be righteous still; he who is holy, let him be holy still.” You don’t want to be found outside of the Kingdom we know as “Heavenly Jerusalem come down of God from Heaven”. And Galatians 4.26 “Heavenly Jerusalem, the Mother of us all” who have made it thus far. She is the bride of Christ and this recognition is the Wedding Feast”.
So what does “end times” and “last days” mean in scripture? That it is over. And the Jews with the land of Israel associated with the old testament have all been expired together as a cultural style that DID NOT WORK. Why? Because they did not yield any good thing. As it is written by Paul,a chief sinner from the Jews who wrote concerning the age of the Law and the prophets, along with their Holy Days, feasts, persons and places: 10 As it is written: “There is none righteous, no, not one; 11 There is none who understands; There is none who seeks after God. 12 They have all turned aside; They have together become unprofitable; There is none who does good, no, not one.” 13 “Their throat is an open [a]tomb; With their tongues they have practiced deceit”; “The poison of asps is under their lips”; 14 “Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness.” 15 “Their feet are swift to shed blood; 16 Destruction and misery are in their ways; 17 And the way of peace they have not known.” 18 “There is no fear of God before their eyes.” 19 Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become [b]guilty before God. 20 Therefore by the deeds of the law no flesh will be justified in His sight, for by the law is the knowledge of sin.
Why would any body want to go back and associate with that culture when the cure has come?
There is really nothing left to say but, The Kingdom of God is still at hand. Why do you seek another coming Jesus with another type of saving with another “end times” when we have the invitation to Gods Kingdom now.
