(Continuation of the previous post)
Then what is the everlasting covenant that the people disobeyed, therefore, bringing destruction on themselves?
Hebrews 13:20 May the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep…
This eternal/everlasting covenant is made through the blood of Jesus, but what is it exactly?
Luke 22:8- Jesus sent Peter and John, saying, “Go and make preparations for us to eat the Passover.
Verse 13-15: They left and found things just as Jesus had told them. So they prepared the Passover. And he said to them, “ I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer….
So what did Jesus want to prepare for??? The Passover!!! And what did he promise through this Passover??
Luke 19-20- and he took bread gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you”.
The PASSOVER is the EVERLASTING COVENANT!!! Then, what is it that God will destroy the earth??
Vs. 5- they have disobeyed the laws, violated the statutes and broken the everlasting covenant. (They have broken the PASSOVER)
The PASSOVER is one of the most important feasts that God has commended us to keep for our salvation. However, people now days don’t realize the importance of the PASSOVER and they neglect to keep it since it was abolish by the Nicaea Council in AD 325. That’s the reason why God is going to destroy everything at the end… but remember very few are left…
So, if the whole world is going to be destroyed because nobody is keeping the PASSOVER, How is it that this very few will be left?? These very few that will be left must be keeping the PASSOVER… but, who will be keeping the PASSOVER?? How are people even going to know about it if it was abolished??

Talking about PROPHECIES

The Bible is filled with predictions, or prophecies. Its record, as documented by history, is clear. Bible prophecy is always right.

Bible prophecies are always specific and have been fulfilled down to the smallest details. They usually involve matters of great importance and predict the opposite of what those living at that time of the writing might have been expecting. An outstanding example is the following: Strategically built astride the Euphrates River, ancient Babylon has been called “the political, religious, and cultural centre of the ancient Orient”. About 732 B.C, the prophet Isaiah gave a prophecy –Babylon would fall. Isaiah provided specifics: A leader named “Cyrus” would be the conqueror, the protective waters of the Euphrates would “dry up”, and the city’s gates would “not be shut”. (Isaiah 44:27- 45:3). Some 200 years later, in 539 B.C, the prophecy was fulfill in all its details.

Isaiah made a further startling prediction regarding Babylon: ‘She will never be inhabited”. (Isaiah 13:19, 20). To predict permanent desolation for a sprawling city occupying a strategic location was bold indeed. You would normally expect that such a city would be rebuilt if ruined. Although Babylon lingered on for a while after its conquest, Isaiah’s words (in reality, God’s words) eventually came true. Today the site of ancient Babylon “is flat, hot, deserted and dusty”. God’s words are always and fulfill’’

But in the same book of Isaiah there are many other prophecies that will be fulfilled. The following is one of them:

Isaiah 24:1- See, the Lord is going to lay waste the earth and devastate it. He will ruin its face and scatter its inhabitants… the earth will be completely laid waste and totally plundered.

Verse 5- the earth is defiled by its people; they have disobeyed the laws, violated the statutes and broken the everlasting covenant, therefore a curse consumes the earth; its people must bear their guilt. Therefore, earth’s inhabitants are burned up, and very few are left.

Then, everybody is aware that the end will come. Some people believe this will happen but unfortunately, others scoff at it. However, in the same way that the other prophecies in the book of Isaiah were fulfilled, this one also will be fulfilled.

Even though we see that through this verse the world is going to be destroyed, people don’t wake up to see how to be saved. As you read, though the world will be destroyed… only a few will be left. Then who are these few people left? How come they were not destroyed?. First of all, we need to take a look at reason why the world will be destroyed.

Vs. 5- they have disobeyed the laws, violated the statutes and broken the everlasting covenant.

Then what is the everlasting covenant that the people disobeyed, therefore, bringing destruction on themselves?

Isaiah 51:7- 8 "Hear me, you who know what is right, you people that have my law in your hearts: Do not fear the reproach of man or be terrified by their insults. For the moth will eat them up like garment; the worm will devour them like wool. BUT MY RIGHTEOUSNESS WILL LAST FOREVER, MY SALVATION THROUGH ALL GENERATIONS."

Even if people think that we are crazy, God said dont fear because at the end they will all receive their punisment. That is why i will praise and thank my Father Christ AhnSahngHong because he has given me salvation by showing me the path through his own sacrifice on this earth. He opened my eyes to the truth, giving me the hope for heaven and filling my heart with a love that i can not describe. He is truly my Savior, my God and the most amazing -MY FATHER.

Isaiah 51:12- 13 " I, even I, am he who comforts you. Who are you that you fear mortal men, the sons of men, who are but grass, that you forget the Lord your Maker, who stretched out the heavens and laid the foundations of the earth, that you live in constant terror every day because of the wrath of the oppressor, who is bent on destruction? For where is the wrath of the oppressor?
