What is Vigilant all about?
One could say that this video is a trailer for the upcoming and epic return of the Son of Man.
Who is the Son of Man? The Son of Man is Yahweh, the Creator of Genesis 1:1. This same person is also Jesus, the same Jesus portrayed in the New Testament scriptures. The Son of Man is a name Jesus called himself as to proclaiming his return to restore the Kingdom to Israel and establish his Kingdom on Earth. People have been waiting for thousands of years for this event to happen and the signs of the season are all around us.
Yahweh (Jesus) tells us in Revelation 22:12 that when he returns it will be “quickly” and that his “reward” is with him. What does this mean? The original language uses the Greek word “tachus”... meaning quickly or swiftly. This is where we get our English word for tachometer. What it is saying is that his return will happen very fast… in the blink of an eye according to another prophetic Word that is presented in this piece. (1 Corinthians 15:51-52)
What is meant by his reward?
Primarily, the book of Revelation is addressed to the seven churches that existed at the time John was revealed the prophecy. Each church receives a specific reward, as revealed in Revelation 2 and 3. All seven of these “kinds” or “ages” of churches have existed in time or place throughout history since the church began at Pentecost around 33AD. (Acts 2). These rewards are not only corporate but for the individual believer in the church as they are addressed to “one who overcomes” within each church “kind” or “age”.
These rewards include being spared from world-wide judgment (Rev 3:10), receiving a new name and identity (Rev. 2:17), access to the tree of life (Rev. 2:7), preservation from the “second death” (Rev. 2:11), reigning with Christ (Rev. 3:21), and so much more.
It is my belief that this event will happen soon… within the biblical generation (Matt. 24:34) that existed when the nation of Israel was reborn on May 14, 1948. How long is a biblical generation? There is mixed opinion on this and various scriptures allude to time spans of 40, 50, 70, 80, or even 100 years! It is now 2024, and you can do the math. There really isn't much time left.
It must be known that Jesus (Yahweh) directly says no one knows the day or hour of his return. But we can know the season! My belief is that he will tarry as long as possible so that more can be rescued from the judgment event to come and that he will also come as soon as possible for those who are eagerly waiting for him. That could be at any time.
Evil, in various forms is flourishing and advancing upon the earth in our modern era, in untold, unknown and unprecedented ways. There is rampant moral decay in our culture. Yahweh has appointed a day unto judgment (Acts 17:30-31, Heb. 10:37). People scoff at this, to their own peril.
In Revelation 3:10, Jesus (Yahweh) foretells of a world-wide event… an “hour of trial which shall come upon the earth, to test those who dwell on the earth.” It is to this audience this piece is presented… to be aware of and ready for the Return of the Son of Man. There will be a world wide cataclysm "as it was in the days of Noah...", as Jesus declares. (Matt 24:34-44). The event will come without warning (Matt. 24:42-44). If your heart and soul is not right with God then you cannot escape the wrath that is to come. (1 Thess. 1:10)
The video depicts an extended period of tension and patient waiting. But when the event finally occurs, it happens suddenly and everything is immediately changed. According to the Bible, this event (also known as the Resurrection/Rapture of the church) will mark the end of the church age, the so called “age of the Gentiles”.
The next age prophesied in Scripture is known as “The Day of the Lord”, and at that time Israel will be the vanguard, primary proclaimer and Evangel of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. (Rev. 7:4-8) Yahweh and Christ are one.
Until that occurs there is still time to repent of your sins and get right with God. After the return of the Son of Man, it will be too late to be spared from the wrath to come. If you wish, email me and I will get back to you.
“Write the vision and make it plain on tablets, that he may run who reads it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time; but at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.
(Habakkuk 2:2-3, cf. Hebrews 10:37)
