Jesus spoke this wonderful and mysterious parable commonly referred to as the Parable of the Wheat and Tares, within the parable Jesus explains that the good wheat and the evil weeds (tares) must grow up together. (Matthew 13:24-30) At first it seems rightly to pull the weeds insomuch to save the grain and multiply the harvest but Jesus specifically says, “No. Do not rip out the tares because you could harm the roots of the good wheat when you do and spoil the harvest.” And so, the Master tells his servants, “Let them grow up together until harvest time and then separate them. The wheat put into baskets but the weeds throw into the fire.”
There remains much mystery to what is commonly referred to as, The End of Days. I would like to mention that it is somewhat misleading to say, “end of days” or “last days” – in truth it isn’t the end at all, it’s the end of an old and broken world but the rebirth of a new and perfected one! The Last Days, as it is commonly taught in our churches, is actually not entirely something to be feared and vilified. While there are clearly some rough times described throughout scripture, there is much more to the end times than simply bad news. Why churchdom has chosen to double and triple-down, emphasizing the worst parts of the end of this age for arguably centuries perhaps we can discuss in another article entitled, “Why fear is often religions go-to method for control and subjugation”.
I was a missionary for some years. During my missionary journey’s God was very faithful to give me inspiration of what to preach about, amazingly every single time I had to preach. And I preached a lot over those years, I think I probably preached at more than 2,000 churches, over 5 continents – so that’s a lot of inspiration needed for a lot of sermons! But God was always faithful. While on the road, there was a long period of time that He kept me preaching out of Jeremiah Chapter 31, specifically verses 10-17. That’s an absolutely beautiful and prophetic section of scripture from the prophet Jeremiah! I prophesied out of these verses over and again and then after my missionary journeys the Spirit opened my eyes to even more about Jeremiah’s prophecy (feel free to take a moment and read it for yourselves):
Now, in context the Lord is referring to Israel and the Jews returning to their land! God has scattered them to the nations but Jeremiah proclaims that God will return them home to Israel. But there is a duality to returning them “home” because He (God) is also returning His people to Himself! They were once scattered and without their home, they wandered away from their God and Father but Jeremiah reveals that He will return them to Himself. And with great joy and celebration they actually have been coming back! The Jews and Israelites have not only been returning to their land but also to their God and Father! This has actually been happening some 100 years or so! But this passage of scripture is a prophecy and prophecy can be referring to many things at the same time – prophecy will often have within it layers of understanding to be revealed by God to its reader as the Spirit of God searches the hearts and opens the eyes of our understanding. Bear with me a moment to explain more:
A very important passage concerning this New Beginning, which God is actively preparing for the earth, is in Romans Chapter 11 (really, to understand it all in context it is best to read the whole chapter, although now I will be referring to only a few scriptures). Verse 25 says, “…blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.” The Old Testament is all about God’s plans for Israel and how Israel will bring salvation to the earth, through Messiah, whom we now have. The New Testament introduces and explains this New Covenant that is for every family on the earth, those who are Gentile-believers (Gentile meaning of course, Non-Israel or Non-First Covenant Believers) but also the original family of Israel. But it is vital when coming to understand the events leading up to and surrounding the New Beginning that both the Gentile-believers and Israel are intimately involved with these events leading up to the New Beginning. Back to Jeremiah 31:
The prophecy of Jeremiah 31, tells us of a New Covenant that God will make with the house of Israel! Read verses 31-34. And out of this new covenant in some miraculous and mysterious manner, God will make One New Man out from His children: One New Man out of both Israel and the Gentiles (Ephesians 2:11-18). God is actively making All Things New for His children. And there will absolutely be a glorious New Beginning for the earth and The King will come and reign over all the nations that remain for a thousand years, even from Israel! This is the covenant-promise we have in our God but not everyone will receive Him – and it remains difficult to understand why so many will continue to reject His perfect love even until the very last day. But without a doubt, we, the children of God, are returning to Zion! (Jeremiah 31:12)
Jeremiah’s prophecy specifically tells us, both the original covenant and the new covenant, “When you return to Him, He who is Zion, God will turn your mourning into joy and He will comfort you, He will make you to rejoice from your sorrows. And the people of God will be satisfied with His goodness.” He tells us to, “Refrain our voice from weeping, and our eyes from tears…” He says, “There is hope in our end…” But we have basically always been taught otherwise about the coming new beginning: we have been taught “be afraid”, it will be a terrible time of suffering and evil, practically your worst fears will come upon you and it’s almost as if suddenly God isn’t around to help… But that is almost entirely opposite of what God promises us even regarding these times of temptation and trial. Read Psalm 91, Luke 21:18 “…but not a hair on your heads shall perish”! Trust me, we have been horribly mistaught about these times of shaking and preparation.

Joel has a very important prophesy regarding these days leading up to the new beginning, in Chapter 2, really you should read the whole chapter for context, again God is describing this wonderful event of His Children returning to their land and returning to Himself – and it’s specifically referring to the end of this age in context! The chapter concludes with this marvelous prophecy, “And it shall come to pass afterward,” (Afterward if referring to after God returns them to their land, very important to consider) “…that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: and also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.” And all this before, “the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.”
For whatever the reason men: many pastors, preachers, bible teachers, bible colleges, etc. have chosen to focus on all the bad news, and for decades or longer. While we have just lived through some fearful and frightful times: Covid-19, stolen elections, wars and rumors of wars, riots, etc. it was simply not as bad as it could have been, it was not as bad as many made it out to be, in fact for many of us its working out to be a blessing in disguise! God is very capable of blessing His children, even during tumultuous times (Psalm 37 has a lot to say on the subject). Jesus warns us of these days, in Luke 21:19, saying, “In your patience possess ye your souls.” That means God intends that we live to see The New Beginning – but The Big Warning that comes with living through these tremendous times of change is of course, “Who will obey God’s word?”
I can continue to show you all the good news that God has in store for His children as He “Pours out His Spirit on all flesh” after He returns His Israel to their land. But there is a warning attached to all the Good News, if we want to live to see all these fearful and wonderful events leading up to the greatest climax in any story ever told: we will need to seek Him, listen for His voice and then (the scary word,) obey. He tells us of all the wonders He will do but what if we fight against Him every step of the way, refusing to trust Him!? He tells us of these times, “He who loves His life will lose His life.” God is very different than many of us have been taught. He truly wants to bless us, to bless our families and everyone who turns to Him, even up to the very last day of this age… He wants to love us and take care of us… We are His own children.
And there is even good news for the Davos-Globalists! God not only blesses His children but He also gives those who have warred against Him their moment of glory. (Yes, absolutely God can do both, bless and keep His children and give the world to corruption for a time.) And most of us from the Church have been taught well of these terrifying events. Most of us know of the global empire that will come to dominate the earth. We have learned of their system of control and total dominance over all the families of the world with their mark. We have seen much of this technology even being presented during Covid!! So we know beyond the shadow of a doubt that we are certainly nearing the day of The Great New Beginning that God has long promised us.
God never wanted us to inherit a broken world like this. Have you ever considered? God gave us perfection in the garden but we broke it and we continue to break God’s earth: we build of iniquity upon the earth, we destroy much more than we bless, we take men and the children of men away from their God and Father and worse. And so, God is doing us a great favor: He is going to wipe away all the injustice, all the iniquity, everyone who does not want Him God will remove and He is going to make All Things New! This was never His plan for us to inherit corruption and so He, our Father, is fixing everything that was broken. He is making everything right, thus: THE GREAT NEW BEGINNING.
But Davos, you will have your moment of glory. Don’t worry, even if it seems like you are losing for a brief moment, even if your plans and agendas are being pushed back and stopped for a time, it has all been written: God will give you your kingdom in which to wreak havoc upon the nations, to crush the people of the world into subjection to your will. Soon enough you will come to rule the world as you have always wanted. God will answer the cries of your heart and give you this desire. But be aware, it will be short lived and not nearly as fulfilling as you had hoped. You will war against the God of heaven without a cause and your wickedness and corruption will in the end be put on display for all to see – so then, when you have received your judgment, there will be no mourning the loss, no tears over your graves or grief from your demise. You have determined in your hearts to hate both The Living God and His people!? And you will have your just reward.
Who has ever heard of such wonderful, amazing and fearful things as this!? Only God could write such a story!! And we have front row seats!!
Friends, Saints of God,
We are alive to see to the unfolding of the greatest events that will ever happened in this world! Wisdom says, do not be afraid but fear only leaving the presence of your God and Father – In Him there will be deliverance and Great Reward! But be afraid warring against Him and His will, be afraid if your heart wanders after the temporal things of man and you lose your grip on eternity, be afraid if you chose the world over the kingdom of God (no man can serve two masters, he will love the one and hate the other. No man can serve God and wealth).
God is returning us home. He is returning us with dancing and rejoicing, He is turning our weeping into joy! He says, “Dry your tears and do not sorrow anymore, at all.” It is all being fulfilled, even before our very eyes! Every single thing He has promised He is doing now upon the earth! He is restoring every man, woman and child who wants Him back into His presence. And He will walk in our midst, He will be our God and we will be His people. We will see Him face-to-face and talk with Him as a man speaks to His friend! He is getting everything ready for the Great Day now.
The people of God, in His Christ, have nothing to fear. Our God loves us and will never leave us fatherless. Our Father is returning us home. He has quickened the day. We have only just begun to see the amazing things He will do upon the earth as He ushers us into eternity. “In your patience possess ye your souls” He warns us, “I am going to shake everything. The heavens and the earth. But that which is planted upon me will remain.” (Paraphrase of Hebrews 12:26,27) The shaking must come but we, who are in Christ, will not be moved.
The Best is Yet to Come Saints, you Holy and Set Apart Children of God.
The Greatest Deliverance ever seen is starting to unfold upon the earth!
Sing! Dance! Rejoice! Make a Joyful Noise unto the Lord!
Our Deliverance has come and it comes quickly!
It is time to return to Him, It’s time to return to Zion…
Tell the world of this hope that you have received in Him
…That many will be saved.
My heart is so full for you, Men of God,
I will continue to encourage you as God gives me grace,
With love and devotion,
