The Last Chance to Flee the City
THE LAST CHANCE TO FLEE THE CITY
2 Kings 25:19, “He also took out of the city an officer who had charge of the men of war, five men of the king’s close associates who were found in the city, the chief recruiting officer of the army, who mustered the people of the land, and sixty men of the people of the land who were found in the city.” We are looking for a few good people, dedicated, hard-working believers. We need financiers, benefactors, architects, engineers, contractors, farmers and food distributors, woodcutters, trash haulers, hole diggers, folks (ministers) with any and all kinds of talents. The reason we need you will become apparent throughout this letter.
2 Kings 25:2-3, “So the city was besieged until the eleventh year of King Zedekiah. 3By the ninth day of the fourth month the famine had become so severe in the city that there was no food for the people of the land.”
My friends, the end time crisis is coming upon the face of the whole earth. Yahweh keeps speaking to my wife and I that as many believers as possible MUST get out of the cities. Bring yourselves together, buy a piece of dirt, buy a tent, a camper, a trailer, a home outside the city and begin preparations TODAY for severe living conditions of the end times. When the stuff hits the fan (S.H.T.F.), the cities will be cut off, you will NOT be allowed to leave the city. Conditions inside cities will deteriorate rapidly. The beast nature of man will manifest quickly as things progress to each man for himself. The Katrina hurricane scenario was just a tiny picture of what is in store for those caught in the cities. Time is running out, not walking out. You need to get your emergency supplies together while they are still on the store shelves.
Luke 13:22-35, “And He went through the cities and villages, teaching, and journeying toward Jerusalem. 23Then one said to Him, “Master, are there few who are saved?”
And He (Yeshua) said to them, 24“Strive to enter through the narrow gate, for many, I say to you, will seek to enter and will not be able. 25When once the Master of the house (remember His role as High Priest?) has risen up and shut the door, and you begin to stand outside and knock at the door, saying, ‘Master, Master, open for us,’ and He will answer and say to you, ‘I do not know you, where you are from,’ 26then you will begin to say, ‘We ate and drank in Your presence, and You taught in our streets.’ 27But He will say, ‘I tell you I do not know you, where you are from. Depart from Me, all you workers of iniquity.’ 28There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when you see Abraham and Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of Yahweh, and yourselves thrust out. 29They will come from the east and the west, from the north and the south, and sit down in the kingdom of Yahweh. 30And indeed there are last who will be first, and there are first who will be last.”
31On that very day some Pharisees came, saying to Him, “Get out and depart from here, for Herod (Antipas I) wants to kill You.”
32And He said to them, “Go, tell that fox, ‘Behold, I cast out demons and perform cures today and tomorrow, and the third day I shall be perfected.’ 33Nevertheless I must journey today, tomorrow, and the day following; for it cannot be that a prophet should perish outside of Jerusalem.
34“O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, but you were not willing! 35See! Your house is left to you desolate; and assuredly, I say to you, you shall not see Me until the time comes when you say, ‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of Yahweh!’””
Once Yeshua arises from his role as High Priest and shuts the door of the heavenly sanctuary, it may be too late for repentance. If He’s no longer in the sanctuary as High Priest, who’s going to hear your cry for mercy? He has stretched out this era of mercy for almost two thousand years, but He has to take His position as Judge of the earth and settle all the accounts of man. This is the day we’ve all been looking forward to, but it’s going to be a day we really don’t want to see. We want to see Jesus, but will we recognize Him as Judge, Jury and Executioner? Yeshua is coming back to receive His Kingdom. The return of Jesus Christ, Yeshua HaMashiach, is THE ISSUE today. Many believers suffer under a heavy load of debt, cares of this life, poor health, lack of decent employment or prosperous business. All the activity of this life pales in comparison with the over-arching importance of Yeshua’s second coming! Are you ready to meet your Maker, are your neighbors? Yahweh is using some of the weapons in His arsenal right now just trying to wake the world up to the fact that it’s all about over, Jesus is coming, ready or not. He controls asteroids, tornadoes, hurricanes, volcanoes, earthquakes, and is using them now as signs of our times. Nations continue to turn against Israel and Israel’s God, big mistake. Yahweh will not be mocked. Yahweh wants us to willingly fall on our knees and confess that He is Lord of all. You don’t want to be forced to make that confession. Wake up church!
Ezekiel 7:1-27, “Moreover the word of Yahweh came to me, saying, 2“And you, son of man, thus says Sovereign Yahweh to the land of Israel (this includes the grafted in church):
‘An end! The end has come upon the four corners of the land.
3 Now the end has come upon you,
And I will send My anger against you;
I will judge you according to your ways,
And I will repay you for all your abominations.
4 My eye will not spare you,
Nor will I have pity;
But I will repay your ways,
And your abominations will be in your midst;
Then you shall know that I am Yahweh!’
5“Thus says Sovereign Yahweh:
‘A disaster, a singular disaster;
Behold, it has come!
6 An end has come,
The end has come;
It has dawned for you; (The END has awakened against you!)
Behold, it has come!
7 Doom has come to you, you who dwell in the land;
The time has come,
A day of trouble is near,
And not of rejoicing in the mountains.
8 Now upon you I will soon pour out My fury,
And spend My anger upon you;
I will judge you according to your ways,
And I will repay you for all your abominations.
9 ‘My eye will not spare,
Nor will I have pity;
I will repay you according to your ways,
And your abominations will be in your midst.
Then you shall know that I am Yahweh who strikes.
10 ‘Behold, the day!
Behold, it has come!
Doom has gone out;
The rod has blossomed,
Pride has budded.
11 Violence has risen up into a rod of wickedness;
None of them shall remain,
None of their multitude,
None of them;
Nor shall there be wailing for them.
12 The time has come,
The day draws near.
‘Let not the buyer rejoice,
Nor the seller mourn,
For wrath is on their whole multitude.
13 For the seller shall not return to what has been sold,
Though he may still be alive;
For the vision concerns the whole multitude,
And it shall not turn back;
No one will strengthen himself
Who lives in iniquity.
14 ‘They have blown the trumpet and made everyone ready,
But no one goes to battle;
For My wrath is on all their multitude.
15 The sword is outside,
And the pestilence (plague, disease) and famine within.
Whoever is in the field
Will die by the sword;
And whoever is in the city,
Famine and pestilence will devour him.
16 ‘Those who survive will escape and be on the mountains
Like doves of the valleys,
All of them mourning,
Each for his iniquity.
17 Every hand will be feeble,
And every knee will be as weak as water.
18 They will also be girded with sackcloth;
Horror will cover them;
Shame will be on every face,
Baldness on all their heads.
19 ‘They will throw their silver into the streets,
And their gold will be like refuse;
Their silver and their gold will not be able to deliver them
In the day of the wrath of Yahweh;
They will not satisfy their souls,
Nor fill their stomachs,
Because it became their stumbling block of iniquity.
20 ‘As for the beauty of his ornaments,
He set it in majesty;
But they made from it
The images of their abominations—
Their detestable things;
Therefore I have made it
Like refuse to them.
21 I will give it as plunder
Into the hands of strangers,
And to the wicked of the earth as spoil;
And they shall defile it.
22 I will turn My face from them,
And they will defile My secret place; (think abomination of desolation)
For robbers shall enter it and defile it.
23 ‘Make a chain,
For the land is filled with crimes of blood, (abortion, terror)
And the city is full of violence.
24 Therefore I will bring the worst of the Gentiles,
And they will possess their houses;
I will cause the pomp of the strong to cease,
And their holy places shall be defiled.
25 Destruction comes;
They will seek peace, but there shall be none.
26 Disaster will come upon disaster,
And rumor will be upon rumor.
Then they will seek a vision from a prophet;
But the law will perish from the priest,
And counsel from the elders.
27 ‘The king will mourn,
The prince will be clothed with desolation,
And the hands of the common people will tremble.
I will do to them according to their way,
And according to what they deserve I will judge them;
Then they shall know that I am Yahweh!’””
Please note, I did not use the term doom, Yahweh did. Doom and gloom must come before Yeshua returns. The glory arrives with Yeshua! But we have to get through the doom and gloom first.
Genesis 19:12-17, “Then the men (angels) said to Lot, “Have you anyone else here? Son-in-law, your sons, your daughters, and whomever you have in the city—take them out of this place! 13For we will destroy this place, because the outcry against them has grown great before the face of Yahweh, and Yahweh has sent us to destroy it.”
14So Lot went out and spoke to his sons-in-law, who had married his daughters, and said, “Get up, get out of this place; for Yahweh will destroy this city!” But to his sons-in-law he seemed to be joking.
15When the morning dawned, the angels urged Lot to hurry, saying, “Arise, take your wife and your two daughters who are here, lest you be consumed in the punishment of the city.” 16And while he lingered, the men took hold of his hand, his wife’s hand, and the hands of his two daughters, Yahweh being merciful to him, and they brought him out and set him outside the city. 17So it came to pass, when they had brought them outside, that he said, “Escape for your life! Do not look behind you nor stay anywhere in the plain. Escape to the mountains, lest you be destroyed.””
Friends, family, this is a personal invitation from Yahweh to come live on our property, here in the Colorado Rockies, above the Royal Gorge. It’s cold and dry here, so bring your tents or campers, food and water, port-a-potties, and long-johns and get out of the cities NOW. The folks in Noah’s day thought he was a joke too, until it started to rain. Yes, Yahweh saved Noah and Lot, but if Noah had not built the ark, he would have perished with the rest of mankind. Remember, Yahweh Himself closed the door of the ark. When the door of opportunity for salvation closes, no man can open it. Destruction is coming suddenly upon this earth, it’s time to work with Yahweh, not against Him. Get your ark ready today. So far, Yahweh has spared this property from foreclosure, but to grow it into the refugee camp that Yahweh wants will take the help of many other believers. Are you one of the remnant that Yahweh wants to save through the coming tribulation? This is not the time to operate in fear, but in faith and obedience. The beast is coming upon us, will you be deceived or will you be an overcomer? It’s your choice today, tomorrow you may not have a choice. The door is still open, for now. Just let me know when you’re coming, those that know me know I don’t like surprises.
Yeshua gave me a word the other day from Acts 26:17-18, “I will deliver you from the Jewish people, as well as from the Gentiles, to whom I now send you, 18to open their eyes, in order to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who are sanctified by faith in Me.’” We receive forgiveness and our inheritance together, by faith in Yeshua! You are my inheritance, I am your inheritance. My wife and I are very private people, but we have laid ourselves and this property on the altar. We’re here to serve Him and you, but I’m getting old and time is screaming by. Your inheritance awaits.
Luke 21:34-36, Yeshua stated, “But take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness, and cares of this life, and that Day come on you unexpectedly. 35For it will come as a snare on all those who dwell on the face of the whole earth. 36Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.”
Some may believe this passage teaches the rapture, but look closely, the snare of that Day is coming upon ALL those who dwell on the face of the whole earth. Good luck with that rapture thing. Noah wasn’t raptured, he built an ark. It’s not faith plus good works = salvation, it’s salvation = faith plus good works. Noah was saved because he believed Yahweh and Yahweh declared him righteous. As a result of his relationship with Yahweh, Noah did what he was supposed to do, therefore he was saved through the flood, not raptured off the planet. If Noah had been disobedient to Yahweh, he would have drowned like the rest. What was it Yeshua said in Matthew 24:37-39, “But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 38For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, 39and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.” Noah did not act in fear, he acted in faith, and built the ark that saved humanity from extinction. A word to the wise. . .
Luke 21:8-11, “And He (Yeshua) said: “Take heed that you not be deceived. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am He,’ and, ‘The time has drawn near.’ Therefore do not go after them. 9But when you hear of wars and commotions, do not be terrified; for these things must come to pass first, but the end will not come immediately.”
10Then He said to them, “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. 11And there will be great earthquakes in various places, and famines and pestilences (plagues, disease); and there will be fearful sights and great signs from heaven.”
Yahweh has not pulled out the 100-pound hailstones yet, but they are coming, you can bank on that. Make sure your insurance is up to date. The earth is rocking and reeling from all the natural phenomena taking place around the globe today, but it’s going to get a lot more dizzying as the time draws near. Over the last 100 years, we’ve seen plenty of wars and commotions and now we’re experiencing the earthquakes, famines, and plagues. So, what’s next? Read the book. For one thing, there’s an angry Assyrian preparing for his day in the spotlight. Learn to read the signs. Good grief, how many earthquakes over 4.0 can occur on this planet in any given month? Once the Yellowstone volcano blows, it’s too late, once the asteroid strikes the earth, it’s too late. Once the nuke is lit, . . . Good grief, it’s not rocket science. Just open your eyes and hearts to Yahweh, and get to the exact place where Yahweh wants you to be, because once the S.H.T.F., you may not be able to go anywhere else, until Yeshua shows up. Was Lot joking? Was Noah a joke? The people of their day eventually discovered the truth, but unfortunately it turned out to be too late for them. Don’t be deceived by the things of this world, God’s clock is ticking. Once the sanctuary door is shut, the joke is on you. Just like with Noah and Lot, timing-location, timing-location, timing-location. Allow Yahweh to take you to the right place at the right time. Watch the signs and pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
Waiting patiently for you and Him,
Gene Benjamin II
