Welcome to the Memorial Parsha of Jesus Christs’ Re’eh (Deuteronomy 11:26 through Deuteronomy 16:17, We are now in the thirteenth Chapter of Re’eh, on the Sabbath of August 8th, 2010. I have chosen the 53rd chapter of Isaiah for the Haftorah, however if you want to read Traditional Haftorah Isaiah 54:11 through Isaiah 55:5.

Jesus said that in the last days there would arise many prophets. There are a growing number of prophets that deny his physical existence on earth; that we are sinners and need to repent; that Jesus died on the cross and rose on the third day; that Jesus is the Son of the Living God, his only begotten Son. Likewise the Apostle Paul says that the Spirit of God (Romans 8:0) knows who we are in our salvation better than the Spirit of God. The Holy Ghost is also our Comforter, and He (the Holy Spirit) bears witness to the truth; which the world doesn’t know and cannot understand. I think if the world could understand this could lead to divine healing of all infirmities, spiritual, economically, financially, physically and wholly; but we have to take the responsibility of the kingdom that is at hand with our behavior. We have what we have because of God’s grace and mercy. (Deuteronomy 13:1; Matthew 24:24; and Zechariah 10:2)
Moses, commanded, and taught the word of God saying that you shall not listen to a false prophet. Like Aaron, the LORD God proves you to know how much you shall love the LORD Your God, and with all of your fiber. (Deuteronomy 9:2 and Deuteronomy 13:1-3). You shall walk after the LORD your God and fear Him, and keep His commandments and obey His voice; you shall serve Him and hold fast to Him. (Deuteronomy 13:4). False prophets shall be put to death. Next Moses commands that you shall not listen to another person close to you or in your own household tries to get you to serve other gods that you don’t know, while you have a choice – the spirit of the candle is still lit. Serving a god that you don’t know is a false religion in the name of the gods of the other people of that nation. Moses commanded that you shall not consent to false religion nor listen to him because he has tried to entice or seduce you away from the word of God, the commandments taught by Moses from God. Moses commanded that you shall have nothing to do with the false prophet, of the false religion; but you shall surely kill him and in the prescribe manner of the word. (Deuteronomy 13:6-11).
Also in this chapter, the false prophet of the false religion shall be put to death because: he has tried to turn you away from the LORD Your God to thrust you out of the way which the LORD Your God has commanded you to walk; and he sought to thrust you away from the Lord Your God. The religion of the false prophet will cause you to turn away from God and aside out of the way of God’s word; which is the commandments that Moses has taught you that you shall teach your children O house of Jacob; to cleave to God, and to love Him with all your Heart – this required from God. (Deuteronomy 10:12; Micah 6:8; Deuteronomy 6:17; and Deuteronomy 11:22).

The false prophets’ number one goal is to make you believe in nothing, to get you away from God. You shouldn’t believe in Religion. You shall believe in God. Have faith in God, a God that brought you out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage. You shall have faith in a God that redeemed you out of the house of bondage. (Deuteronomy 13:5, 10). You shall put away evil from among you, you shall hear and fear and then you will learn from your errors. You shall no longer do wickedness among you. (Deuteronomy 13:5, 11; 17:13 and Deuteronomy 18:20).

Lastly, Moses commands that you shall inquire about the city that the LORD has given when a person seduces the inhabitants to commit abomination amongst your dwelling place, then you shall attack the inhabitants of the city with the sword. You shall destroy the city for God. (Joshua 6:24 and Deuteronomy 13:14-16). You shall cleave to the curse thing from the city because you if you don’t then you will cause the wrath of God to afflict you. You shall obey the commandments of God taught by the hand of Moses, because you want righteousness to show you mercy, compassion to multiply you and your family, as God has sworn to your fathers. Yes, you shall not cleave to anything cursed because you want the favor (grace) of God; because you listen to God’s word to keep all His commandments “this day.” (Deuteronomy 4:40; 13:18;12:25). Today shall be the first day that you can do what is right in the eyes of the LORD Your God, no longer will you stay on the mountain and what is right in the eyes of each person in 2010, go ahead and go into your spiritual promise land but mindful of your neighbor. (Deuteronomy 12:25 and Deuteronomy 13:17-18).

Matthew 24:1-35: The sign of the end of times
1And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple.
2And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
3And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?
4And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
5For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
6And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
7For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
8All these are the beginning of sorrows.
9Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.
10And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
11And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
12And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
13But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
14And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
15When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)
16Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:
17Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house:
18Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.
19And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!
20But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:
21For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
22And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.
23Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.
24For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
25Behold, I have told you before.
26Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.
27For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
28For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.
29Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
30And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. (Matthew 24:1-35, King James Version)
Daniel 9:27; 11:31; 12:11 – Daniel 27:27And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
