The Messiah Son of David – Will you recognize him when he comes?

When the Messiah comes, he may come in disguise.  He may follow the examples of Joseph and Moses and appear foreign to his people.  He would then reveal himself to his brethren as Joseph and Moses did.  When they recognize him they will welcome him back to their family whether it is his first or second appearance.

The critical question we each need to ask ourselves is whether or not we have eyes to see and spiritual insight to recognize him when he comes.  What if the messiah comes as a common Jew from the land of Israel instead of as Christian theology proclaims?  How would you recognize him without the pagan attributes that have been given to him over the millennia or how would you recognize him if he doesn’t appear in the air with his angels?

The Messiah could come as the Creator’s small, still voice; a voice speaking so softly to the world that virtually nobody notices at first.  You would have to watch and listen carefully to recognize him.  You would need to look at the world around you without your theologicall biases in order to recognize him.

My belief is that most Jews and Christians may not recognize him in the beginning as they will be looking for something else.  It won’t be until the Messiah is well under way in bringing the lost ten tribes home to unite with Judah to restore God’s kingdom here on earth that some will recognize him by what he is doing and saying.  Many Jews and Christians may even say that he is a false messiah since he doesn’t conform to their particular theology. 

We would all do well to remember that theology is man’s attempt at defining and understanding God and His truth.  You cannot contain the Creator of the Universe with our mental constructs and expectations.  He has demonstrated over and over that he works in very mysterious ways.  As the bible says in Isaiah 55: 7 – 9:  Let the wicked forsake his way and the unrighteous man his thoughts; and let him return to the Lord, and He will have compassion on him, and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon.  “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,” declares the Lord.  “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.” (NASB)

We live in a world of lies and illusions.  So much so that it is often hard to figure out what the truth is.  We know that God is truth and that his Messiah will represent God’s truth.  So don’t let your religious theology and doctrines get in the way of recognizing truth when it arrives.  Let us return to our Creator and find His truth! 

The bible is clear that the Messiah will restore all the tribes of Israel and not just Judah (Jews) in forming the Kingdom of God here on earth.  Watch for much to happen in the coming days, weeks, and months.  Don’t focus on the tribulation as it occurs all around you, but rather put your sights on God and His truth. Those with eyes to see will see truth and miracles all around in the midst of all the turmoil.  Will you recognize him when he arrives?  He may not fit the image you were expecting.  He will be filled with God’s truth and be about the tasks he has been assigned.  You recognize him by his truth, his actions, and what he accomplishes.

  1. Yes!

    There was so much information given on an about this particular heir of David's, it was a most easy person to find once Israel became a recognized nation of this present world again.

    Of the tribe of Judah, in the bloodline of David being spiritually gifted from birth, living in the land of the North as a modern day Egypt, USA. Knowing the word of God like no other and a warrior prophet as well. How could one of this kind not be noticed and found to be at the service of Kings of this modern day world? Hidden away in secret operations until the day of his revealing, just as God had foretold.

    His final assignment from God is near at hand. That being the bringing of this present day and age to it's close, so the eternal Kingdom of Heaven can be established upon this earth. One can easily follow along as this all begins to play out in Revelation chapter 12. He will be the one snatched up off the face of this planet by the very hand of God. Just how often does this happen? He will return as the Lion of the tribe of Judah on the first white horse of Revelation chapter 6. He will be in his immortal flesh by then, as no mortal flesh can survive the very presence of our Lord and God, thus an eternal being as well.

    All very simply in the will and ways of our Lord and God of All, and his eternal words as well.

    Seek and you shall find also, by the leading and guidance of our Lord and God, who knows the beginning from the end, a cake walk though his eternal words an into reality.

    Just another bible buff. I personally served with him without knowing just who he was by God's words of prophecy.
