The Certain Coming of Yeshua (Excerpt from The Millennium Chronicles)

“He is right,” one of the Knesset members agreed. “His coming is certain. He will make the weak among us like David and the mighty among us will be like the Angel of Adonai.[i] This is now the time when we will see Yeshua as a man of war who will destroy our enemies. We have not believed our King in the past. Today we will trust. We must, for there is no other way if we desire to live. The King has struck our enemies in the past and he fought against the Nephilim of old whose height was like the cedars and whose strength was like the oaks.[ii] He will fight for us today just like he fought for us in Egypt. He will make a way where there seems to be no way. Not one of us will die if we go now. We must hurry to the valley so that we may see the victory.”

“Then it is agreed, we will all meet in the valley and there await Yeshua who will rescue us,” Caleb said, opening the door expectant of what Yeshua would do but still slightly apprehensive as he thought of the horrors that awaited them in the darkness.

[ii] Amos 2:9

FOR WHEREVER THE CARCASS IS, THERE THE EAGLES WILL BE GATHERED

For many years the passage “For wherever the carcass is, there the eagles will be gathered together,” (Matt 24:28 NKJV) was an enormous conundrum. As a teacher I had to admit that I simply did not understand its meaning. Albert Barnes, Adam Clark, and many others suggest that it refers to the Roman army which sacked the city of Jerusalem in 70 A.D.

The meaning is that he would come, by means of the Roman armies, as “certainly;” as “suddenly,” and as unexpectedly as whole flocks of vultures and eagles, though unseen before, see their prey at a great distance and suddenly gather in multitudes around it. (Barnes on Matt 24:28; see also Adam Clark)

The Pulpit Commentary has offered another interpretation suggesting that Jesus is the carcass and the eagles refer to believers and angels returning with him!

The carcass is Christ, or the body of Christ; the eagles are the saints, or true Christians; these, whatever happens, will, with keen spiritual sight, always be able to discern Christ and his body, and to flock thereto.

While I never was ready to accept such figurative interpretations, I likewise did not have an answer. However, the solution finally became clear Slide78as I was writing a scene in my book, The Millennium ChroniclesLike
so many things in life, once the answer is provided, it seems strange that we never saw it before.

I describe the second coming in my book as well as in my video, The Second Coming and the Battle of Armageddon. Once I realized that the battle of Armageddon is not going to take place in the Megiddo valley but in the valley of Jehoshaphat (outside the city of Jerusalem) –

Then the LORD will go forth And fight against those nations, As He fights in the day of battle. (Zech 14:3 NKJV) And in that day His feet Jesus's Split's the Mount of Oliveswill stand on the Mount of Olives, Which faces Jerusalem on the east. And the Mount of Olives shall be split in two, From east to west, Making a very large valley; Half of the mountain shall move toward the north And half of it toward the south. (Zech 14:4 NKJV)

– and that Jesus would literally stomp on the bodies of the attackers in the newly created valley through the mountain of Olives –

“I have trodden the winepress alone, And from the peoples no one was with Me. For I have trodden them in My anger, And trampled them in My fury; Their blood is sprinkled upon My garments, And I have stained all My robes. (Isa 63:3 NKJV)

– then the next piece came into view.

Because there will be incredible carnage from the debacle of the forces of Antichrist, an angel will cry out to the birds flying overhead to come down for the great feast.

Then 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 God, (Rev 19:17 NKJV) “that 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.” (Rev 19:18 NKJV)

I believe that the return of Jesus will coincide with the fall feasts (described in this video), then there will be a large migration of birds directly over Israel. All the oceans have turned to blood and all of the green grass and at least one third of the trees have been destroyed. Therefore, the eagles or vultures will be incredibly hungry and the invitation to come and feast on all of the carcasses will be most welcome. Hence, the eagles which Jesus mentioned will be literally eagles (or vultures / carrion birds). Jesus mentioned them in relation to the second coming to give clarity to the disciples who he encouraged not to be fooled by anyone saying that he was the messiah. Jesus’ return will be accompanied by unmistakable signs.

“For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. “And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened. “Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There!’ do not believe it. “For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. “See, I have told you beforehand. “Therefore if they say to you, ‘Look, He is in the desert!’ do not go out; or ‘Look, He is in the inner rooms!’ do not believe it. (Matt 24:21-26 NKJV)

When Jesus comes back, there will be a tremendous amount of carnage, so much so that it will be like any other time on the earth.Slide91

“For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. (Matt 24:27 NKJV) “For wherever the carcass is, there the eagles will be gathered together. (Matt 24:28 NKJV)

Not surprisingly, the pieces of the Bible fit together perfectly – but only when the Bible is interpreted literally. I discovered many other places where interpreting the Bible very literally opened up other once hidden passages. One can only wonder what other passages would be cleared up if we could just interpret them literally? Stay tuned. We will examine more such passages and discover an amazingly simple yet satisfactory explanation.

Messianic Age: The Millennium and Beyond ($30 value – free)
Much of our eschatology rightly deals with the events that lead up to the Second Coming of Jesus. However, little attention is given to looking at the events that happen thereafter. This class explores from a very Bible-centric perspective the Messianic Age / Millennium. We begin by understanding how taking God’s Word literally reveals many exciting details of our glorious future. We also look at: the centrality of Israel, our future bodies, aspects of daily life, the size of the City, the decorations of the city, God’s dwelling with mankind, the role of the river of life and trees of life, what the Rabbis and Church Fathers thought about the Millennium, when the creation of the New Heavens and New Earth occurs. This 2 credit class was taught at Calvary Chapel bible College.
