I like the words "in the same way"; it is reminiscent of your writing of the Lord's first arrival. In it we may see something of His return.
I won't go into a full blown discussion here but another thing I have learned in the last few years in my bible studies is to see the JEWS in the scriptures. So often we westernized believers who have experienced the saving Grace and Truth of Messiah Jesus forget the Lord Jesus spoke to the Jews most of the time He was on earth ministering. All His disciples were Jews. I think Luke may have been a gentile. Not sure. It was at Pentecost the gentiles were grafted in !!! Thank You Lord !! When Paul (most likely) wrote the book of Hebrews, He was speaking to the converted Jews who were struggling to walk in the Spirit of Christ. That book wasn't written to the converted gentiles ! The gentiles never went to the Jewish High Priest or made animal sacrifices to cleanse themselves from their sins.

It is also our responsibility to pray for them. Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem. Pray they would open their hearts to their Messiah Yeshuah (Jesus). Especially in these days. We must pray for Israel. She is the apple of God's Eye even though she has rejected their true Savior Jesus. Baruch Ha Shem Ha Messhiah Yeshuah Baruch Ha Shem Adonoi. -Blessed is the Name of Messiah Jesus. Blessed is the Name of the LORD.- (Many years ago, I attended a Messianic church. It was traditionally Jewish in the service..complete with Torah readings. They were born again Jewish believers who worshipped in Hebrew and English. I loved the singing and learned a tad of Hebrew there. I love the Jewish people. When I meet them at the malls as many Jews from Israel have Kiosks (?) stands, I greet them by saying "Shema Israel. Adonai Elohainu. Adonai Echad. -Hear O Israel. The LORD our GOD. The LORD is ONE.

They jump for joy when I have greeted them like this.
In the text I "wrestle with the angel" and say, "Lord, I will not let go until you bless me!"
I never used to ask the LORD to bless me. I always asked the LORD to bless others. Then one day I read that text. And I said to our Father "HEY !! BLESS me too !!!" He does. Ask and You shall receive !

This morning, in the words of Psalm 67, I could feel my Father's face shining upon me
That was the Anointing of the Holy Spirit. His Presence. A few years back I did a study on the Anointing and WOWEE !! I will leave it at that.

That was why I was so offended with WL who said that the Bible was composed of "fallen" and "natural" words which were unprofitable to the believers.
Those were very dangerous words he spoke. The Mormons, JWs and other false religions use the bible but have distorted it. The Presence of the Lord nor His Blessings are with them. They might think differently but they stopped reading the Pure Word of God.

What! These are the "words of Christ", according to Paul! Can you imagine "feeding" people with such teachings!
That is why the saints in the LSM are spiritually & emotionally sick. We ought to pray for their deliverance and healing too. If God had mercy on us, may He have mercy on them too. We could still be stuck in that snare.

Thanks for sharing and abundant blessings Aron.

Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
