For do ye suppose that ye can get rid of the justice of an offended God who hath been trampled under feet of men that thereby salvation might come?
And now behold, as I spoke concerning them whom the Lord had chosen, Yea, even three which were caught up into the heavens, that I knew not whether they were cleansed from mortality to immortality;
But behold, since I wrote I have inquired of the Lord, And He hath made it manifest unto me that there must needs be a change wrought upon their bodies or else it needs be that they must taste of death;
Therefore, that they might not taste of death, there was a change wrought upon their bodies that they might not suffer pain nor sorrow, save it were for the sins of the world.
Now this change was not equal to that which should take place at the last day; But there was a change wrought upon them, insomuch that Satan could have no power over them- that he could not tempt them- And they were sanctified in the flesh, that they were holy and that the powers of the earth could not hold them;
And in this state they were to remain until the judgment day of Christ; And at that day they were to receive a greater change, And to be received into the kingdom of the Father to go no more out, But to dwell with God eternally in the heavens. 54
And now behold I say unto you, that when the Lord shall see fit in His wisdom that these sayings shall come unto the Gentiles according to His word, Then ye may know that the covenant which the Father hath made with the children of Israel concerning their restoration to the lands of their inheritance is already beginning to be fulfilled,
And ye may know that the words of the Lord which have been spoken by the holy prophets shall all be fulfilled; And ye need not say that the Lord delays His coming unto the children of Israel,
And ye need not imagine in your hearts that the words which have been spoken are vain; For behold, the Lord will remember His covenant which He hath made unto His people of the house of Israel.
And when ye shall see these sayings coming forth among you, Then ye need not any longer spurn at the doings of the Lord; For the sword of His justice is in His right hand, And behold, at that day, if ye shall spurn at His doings, He will cause it that it shall soon overtake you.
Wo unto him that spurneth at the doings of the Lord! Yea, wo unto him that shall deny the Christ and His works!
Israel Shall Call Upon Jesus
Jesus reveals himself to a notable Jewish scientist.
Dr. James Tour shares his life-changing testimony of Jesus here:
"Yea, when ye shall call upon the Father in my name, with a broken heart and a contrite spirit, then shall ye know that the Father hath remembered the covenant which he made unto your fathers, O house of Israel;"
"And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications; and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.
