    Yahshua the Savior, promised He would come again and receive His own unto Himself in John 14:3. He also gave things to look for that would reveal clues concerning His return. A prime example: Revelation 19:7 reveals this is a time of rejoicing for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready; she is now dressed in fine linen, clean and white (Verse 8).
    But something has gone awry! The heavens opened and revealed the Rider of the white horse is called Faithful and True, but His clothing is disheveled and ruffled on this joyous wedding day. Why? because prior to the marriage ceremony, Yahshua has been making war on His enemies, sloshing around, much like treading a wine press and getting blood spattered on His wedding garments.
    And he saith unto me, “Write, Blessed [are] they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb.” And he saith unto me, “These are the true sayings of Elohim.” And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, “See [thou do it] not: I am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Yahshua: worship Yahweh: for the testimony of Yahshua is the spirit of prophecy.” And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him [was] called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war … And He [was] clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and His name is called The Word of Yahweh, Revelation 19:9-11, 13. (The King James Version is used throughout.)
    Though He gives His enemies as much time as possible for them to repent, it will not be a joyous time when He returns, as the Old Testament clarifies:
    Who [is] this that cometh from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah? this [that is] glorious in his apparel, traveling in the greatness of his strength? I that speak in righteousness, mighty to save. Wherefore [art thou] red in thine apparel, and thy garments like him that treadeth in the winefat? I have trodden the winepress alone; and of the people [there was] none with me: for I will tread them in mine anger, and trample them in my fury; and their blood shall be sprinkled upon my garments, and I will stain all my raiment. For the day of vengeance [is] in mine heart, and the year of my redeemed is come. And I looked, and [there was] none to help; and I wondered that [there was] none to uphold: therefore mine own arm brought salvation unto me; and my fury, it upheld me. And I will tread down the people in mine anger, and make them drunk in my fury, and I will bring down their strength to the earth, Isaiah 63:1-6.

Yahshua and the Saints Prevail
    It is the Edomites, enemies of Yahshua and Israel, who make war against Him and the saints who are His “Bride.” The Ancient of Days, Yahweh the Heavenly Father, is present at this auspicious time of the marriage of Yahshua and the saints. The Adversary will soon be made powerless for the next one-thousand years, for Yahshua is given supreme power and glory and the kingdom:
    And there was given Him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve Him: His dominion [is] an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and His kingdom [that] which shall not be destroyed, Daniel 7:14.
    But the saints of the most High shall take the kingdom, and possess the kingdom for ever, even for ever and ever, Daniel 7:18.
Yahweh the Heavenly Father had turned rulership over to the saints whom their enemies were attacking, but Yahweh soon came to the rescue:
    I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them; Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom, Daniel 7:21-22.
    And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom [is] an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him, Daniel 7:27.
    And, hath made us kings and priests unto Yahweh His Father; to Him [be] glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen, Revelation 1:6.

Study Now to Prepare for the Future
     As kings and priests, the saints are given rulership with Yahshua with the same authority that He has! The saints are seated on the same throne as Yahshua, who paid the price for all mankind, and now the saints are given rulership. The saints will judge angels (1 Cor. 6:3). This includes us, if we are faithful!
    To Him that overcometh will I grant to sit with Me in My throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with My Father in His throne, Revelation 3:21.
    Behold, a king (Yahshua) shall reign in righteousness, and princes (saints) shall rule in judgment, Isaiah 32:1.
    And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and [I saw] the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Yahshua and for the Word of Elohim, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received [his] mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Messiah a thousand years, Revelation 20:4.
    Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unjust, and not before the saints? Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters? 1 Corinthians 6:1-2.
    And they sung a new song, saying, “Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for Thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to Elohim by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; and hast made us unto our Elohim kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth,” Revelation 5:9-10.
    And he hath on [His] vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND RULER OF RULERS, Revelation 19:16.

The First Resurrection
     The saints will be in that first resurrection and will be immortal spirit beings and invisible to the fleshly people, just as the angelic throng is invisible to us today. The resurrected saints will be working with flesh and blood humans, primarily the scattered “House of Israel,” not only Judah.
    And in that day there shall be a Root of Jesse, which shall stand for an Ensign of the people; to It shall the Gentiles seek: and His rest shall be glorious. And it shall come to pass in that day, [that] Yahweh shall set His hand again the second time to recover the remnant of His people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea. And He shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth, Isaiah 11:10-12.
  Some estimate 2 ½ million Israelites left Egypt under Moses. But Isaiah is here speaking of an even greater exodus, for it will include people living beyond the Middle East, sons and daughters of Israel returning to the land of their fathers.
    Those whom Yahweh brings back to the land will not all be believers in Yahweh’s truth, but will submit to the “Root of Jesse” – understood by scholars as a reference to Yahshua – and under His authority, will be taught by the saints:
    Therefore, “behold, the days come,” saith Yahweh, “that it shall no more be said, Yahweh liveth, that brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt; But, Yahweh liveth, that brought up the children of Israel from the land of the north, and from all the lands whither he had driven them: and I will bring them again into their land that I gave unto their fathers. Behold, I will send for many fishers,” saith Yahweh, “and they shall fish them; and after will I send for many hunters, and they shall hunt them from every mountain, and from every hill, and out of the holes of the rocks,” Jeremiah 16:14-16.
    For thus saith Yahweh; “Sing with gladness for Jacob, and shout among the chief of the nations: publish ye, praise ye, and say, ‘O Yahweh, save thy people, the remnant of Israel’. Behold, I will bring them from the north country, and gather them from the coasts of the earth, [and] with them the blind and the lame, the woman with child and her that travaileth with child together: a great company shall return thither. They shall come with weeping, and with supplications will I lead them: I will cause them to walk by the rivers of waters in a straight way, wherein they shall not stumble: for I am a Father to Israel, and Ephraim [is] My firstborn, Jeremiah 31:7-9.
    “For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land. Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you. A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. And I will put My Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in My statutes, and ye shall keep My judgments, and do [them],” Ezekiel 36:24-27.
    “And I will give you pastors according to Mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding. And it shall come to pass, when ye be multiplied and increased in the land, in those days,” saith Yahweh, “they shall say no more, ‘The ark of the covenant of Yahweh’: neither shall it come to mind: neither shall they remember it; neither shall they visit [it]; neither shall [that] be done any more. At that time they shall call Jerusalem ‘the throne of Yahweh’; and all the nations shall be gathered unto it, to the Name of Yahweh, to Jerusalem: neither shall they walk any more after the imagination of their evil heart. In those days the house of Judah shall walk with the house of Israel, and they shall come together out of the land of the north to the land that I have given for an inheritance unto your fathers. But I said, ‘How shall I put thee among the children, and give thee a pleasant land, a goodly heritage of the hosts of nations’? and I said, ‘Thou shalt call me, My father’; and shalt not turn away from Me. Surely [as] a wife treacherously departeth from her husband, so have ye dealt treacherously with Me, O house of Israel,” saith Yahweh, Jeremiah 3:15-20.
    If Yahshua were to return, with 8 billion on the earth, the coming earthquakes, tsunamis, floods, wars, and other catastrophes that are prophesied, the earth’s population might be reduced to only 2 billion. It is from this starting point that Yahshua’s marriage to the saints takes place, the saints are changed to immortal spirit beings, and the thousand-year reign begins.
    Not everyone who reads Yahweh’s Word today understands the glorious future to which we have been called to share. Only a few are willing to pay the price today to be a part of that glorious future. The going may get tough, but the promise is secure.
    Paul said it best:
    For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time [are] not worthy [to be compared] with the glory which shall be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of Yahweh, Romans 8:18-19. Prepare now!
