SIX RETURNS OF YESHUA
In Revelation chapters 1 through 3 we see Yeshua’s messages to the seven churches in John’s day. Then . . .
RETURN # 1 – Revelation 1:7, “Behold, He is coming with clouds, and every eye will see Him, even they who pierced Him. And all the tribes of the earth will mourn because of Him. Even so, Amen.”
In Revelation chapters 4 through 6 we see a Judgment Scene in Heaven. Then . . .
RETURN # 2 – Revelation 6:12-17, “I looked when He opened the sixth seal, and behold, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became like blood. 13And the stars of heaven fell to the earth, as a fig tree drops its late figs when it is shaken by a mighty wind. 14Then the sky receded as a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island was moved out of its place. 15And the kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains, 16and said to the mountains and rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! 17For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?””
In Revelation chapters 7 through 11 we see a sealing time for the 144,000 Messianic disciple preachers and a great multitude. Then . . .
RETURN # 3 – Revelation 11:15-18, “Then the seventh angel sounded: And there were loud voices in heaven, saying, “The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Master and of His Messiah, and He shall reign forever and ever!” 16And the twenty-four elders who sat before Yahweh on their thrones fell on their faces and worshiped Yahweh, 17saying:
“We give You thanks, O Sovereign Yahweh Almighty,
The One who is and who was and who is to come,
Because You have taken Your great power and reigned.
18 The nations were angry, and Your wrath has come,
And the time of the dead, that they should be judged,
And that You should reward Your servants the prophets and the saints, and those who fear Your name, small and great,
And should destroy those who destroy the earth.””
In Revelation chapters 12 through 14 we see Yahweh’s Bride threatened but protected and saved. Also, we see the winepress of Yahweh’s wrath. Then . . .
RETURN # 4 – Revelation 14:14-20, “Then I looked, and behold, a white cloud, and on the cloud sat One like the Son of Man, having on His head a golden crown, and in His hand a sharp sickle. 15And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to Him who sat on the cloud, “Thrust in Your sickle and reap, for the time has come for You to reap, for the harvest of the earth is ripe.” 16So He who sat on the cloud thrust in His sickle on the earth, and the earth was reaped.
17Then another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle.
18And another angel came out from the altar, who had power over fire, and he cried with a loud cry to him who had the sharp sickle, saying, “Thrust in your sharp sickle and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth, for her grapes are fully ripe.” 19So the angel thrust his sickle into the earth and gathered the vine of the earth, and threw it into the great winepress of the wrath of Yahweh. 20And the winepress was trampled outside the city, and blood came out of the winepress, up to the horses’ bridles, for one thousand six hundred furlongs.”
In Revelation chapters 15 through 16 we see the seven last plagues: the Vials of wrath. Then . . .
RETURN # 5 – Revelation 16:15-21, “Behold, I am coming as a thief. Blessed is he who watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked and they see his shame.” 16And they gathered them together to the place called in Hebrew, Armageddon. 17Then the seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and a loud voice came out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, “It is done!” 18And there were noises and thunderings and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such a mighty and great earthquake as had not occurred since men were on the earth. 19Now the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell. And great Babylon was remembered before Yahweh, to give her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His wrath. 20Then every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. 21And great hail from heaven fell upon men, each hailstone about the weight of a talent. Men blasphemed Yahweh because of the plague of the hail, since that plague was exceedingly great.”
In Revelation chapters 17 through 19, we see Yahweh’s wrath upon the wicked trinity – the Beast, the Dragon, and the False Prophet. Then . . .
RETURN # 6 – Revelation 19:11-21, “Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. 12His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself. 13He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of Yahweh. 14And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses. 15Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty Yahweh. 16And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written:
KING OF KINGS AND MASTER OF MASTERS.
17Then I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in the midst of heaven, “Come and gather together for the supper of the great Yahweh, 18that you may eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of captains, the flesh of mighty men, the flesh of horses and of those who sit on them, and the flesh of all people, free and slave, both small and great.”
19And I saw the beast, the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army. 20Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. These two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone. 21And the rest were killed with the sword which proceeded from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse. And all the birds were filled with their flesh.”
In Revelation chapters 20 through 22, after the close of the Sanctuary door, after Messiah has returned, after Judgment Day has taken place, after Yeshua has been crowned King of the Universe, we see the first 1,000 years of eternity stretch out before the saints of the Kingdom.
Of course we understand that Yeshua does not return six different times, but Revelation repeats and enlarges on the end-time Judgment Day scenario. What becomes clear from reading Revelation and being blessed by its revelation, is that Yeshua is coming back soon, in wrath to settle His score with Satan. The Devil’s days are numbered, the saints’ days are just beginning. The foolish nations will be dealt with, the Rod of Iron will be established, forever. Take it to the bank.
