The King is in the Field - Preparing to Meet Him

Are you a believer in Yeshua? Yeshua is the Hebrew name for Jesus. It means “Salvation”. He is the King of the Jews and the ruler of the kings of the earth. His salvation plan began with the Jews first and then also was extended to the nations, the Gentiles. Yeshua came to earth, out of heaven. This glorious divine Man, Deity, God Almighty, Elohim, revealed the invisible God to those on the earth in those days. God became flesh – He could be seen and touched. He “came to the field”. The King came off His throne in heaven and came to earth. He met with the common people, those without fame or influence. He spoke the truth of who He was to them. He healed, saved, delivered and filled them with so much joy and hope. Then He died on a tree. This Man, God Himself. After three days, He came back to life. He appeared to many on the earth. He spent forty more days here and then He rose into the air and disappeared into the clouds. He told all of those who were standing there, watching Him leave, that He would come back to this earth, just the way He left it. Friends, I love to tell this story. Like the old song says, “it will be my theme in Glory, to tell the old, old story of Jesus and His love”. He wants us to know that this story and the promise at the end is not just a tale. It is true, and we are living in the Day when we could see Him appear at any moment. Many believers have no understanding of the roots of our faith, the promises that God made to His covenant people, Israel, the Jews, and that He extended it to the Gentiles. All who believe in Him are now part of this glorious covenant. But many traditional Christians have no idea that if we take a look at the Word of the Lord, He will reveal mysteries in these days. He says for us to stand at the crossroads and look and ask where the ancient way is and He will give us rest for our souls. You see, the mystery that has been hidden is now being revealed. It’s our choice to go deeper with Him and to be actively living out the prophetic promises. The Lord gave us His plan, revealed in His Feast days – the entire plan of the ages is revealed in these Feasts. Every year, He invites us to meet with Him. In fact, He says these are His “appointed times”. He specifically wants to meet with us during the Feast Days. When Jesus was on earth, He said that He “desired to eat the Passover” with His disciples. He still desires this. I believe He wants us to celebrate every Feast of the Lord with Him. He said that He did not come to abolish the Torah but to fulfill it. For many years now, I have sought Him in His Word concerning the ancient paths. I praise Him for the revelation of beautiful layers of His love that I know I would have never understood before studying and seeking and asking Him for understanding. And I realize that even after all of these years of study and seeking that He is so way past finding out! But my heart continues to say, “seek His face, your face, Lord, I will seek”. I praise Him for leading me this way. Why am I so earnestly sharing these things with you right now? Because I believe He put this on my heart to share, to tell you that soon He will come. And to encourage you to stop longingly looking back at how we “used to do church” and instead let Him stir your heart anew with His calling to you, personally, and allow Him to fill you with a hope that will not be silent. We are living in the last days, and we must proclaim His Truth. This increased urgency to proclaim Him is happening to me right now, as we deal with all the signs of the times around us. I believe it is happening to many believers. Revival is coming because the “King is in the field”. What does this mean? In traditional Judaism, this expression describes the season of repentance just before the Fall Feasts. For us as believers in Messiah Yeshua, I believe it means that we are entering the season of the prophetic celebration of the Fall Feasts, the Feasts announcing and welcoming the return of the King – to the “field”, to planet earth. He has already literally come, in person, to the “field”, to earth, one time, and He is, literally, coming again. The eternal Kingdom of God is on earth, not in the clouds. This year, it is possible that we could see Him on the earth again. If it’s not this year, it is surely soon. I feel so led of the Ruach (Spirit) to encourage you to seek Him in the Word and understand the mysteries of His timetable – study, pray, seek Him and ask for revelation about the Fall Feasts He appointed. He uses a word called “miqra” in Leviticus 23:2, 4. It means “convocations”, and literally, it can be translated “rehearsal”. When we celebrate the Feasts, with fulfillment in Messiah Yeshua, we “rehearse” what is to come. At this present time on the calendar year, we are in the traditional Jewish season of “teshuvah” (it means repentance, turning, returning to God) which is the forty days beginning on the Jewish calendar month of Elul and ending on the 10th day of the Jewish calendar month, Tishrei, on the holiest day of the Jewish biblical year, “Yom Kippur/Day of Atonement”. During this season, let’s allow Him to lead us into a deeper repentance of our own sin. Let’s do this first, deal with the plank in our own eyes, before we even begin to ask Him to take the splinter out of the eyes of others. I believe with all my own heart that this is the Day of the great turning away, but it is also the day of the greatest revival that the world has ever known. He will come back for us and He will dwell with us on earth, from His throne in the City of the Great King. Repentance comes first. Let it begin with us who believe. Weep and mourn and cry and wail (James 4:6-10). Then, He will wipe every tear from our eyes and our joy will be full in Him. Let’s celebrate the Fall Feasts this year – it could be our final rehearsal, or it could be we will see Him coming in the clouds as He fulfills His Word. The King is coming. We will be with Him again when He comes to dwell forever in the Field, on planet earth.
