Worthy to Escape

יהוה

Previously, we established that Elohim has prepared the Old City of Jerusalem as the Place of Refuge, where “the Remnant” will assemble so that they will be alive to greet the Son of Man at His return.   This assembling of  “the Remnant” is referred to as the Greater Second Exodus.

We determined that in this assembly that there will also be “rebellious” individuals that are going to be purged during the Greater Second Exodus.

We further found that the Son of Man began His ministry by proclaiming  the Gospel of the Kingdom in 15 parables  And that the message He was conveying in these Kingdom parables was about the Greater Second Exodus.

We also determined that the Son of Man has instructed us to pray that we are  “accounted worthy” to “endure to the end” and be alive at the second coming of The Son of Man. 

        • Watch therefore, and pray always, that you may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man. (Luke 21:36 KJVm)

In this article, we are going to determine what is required to be “accounted worthy,” so that you can physically escape the predicted apocalyptic events and to be alive to greet The Son of Man at His return.  

According to John the Revelator, keeping of the word of Elohim and having the testimony of The Son of Man are two basic requirements for dead believers to qualify for the first resurrection.

        • Then I saw thrones and they that sat upon them and the authority to make judgment was given to them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the testimony of The Son of Man, and for the word of Elohim, and those which had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or their hands; and they lived and reigned with The Son of Man a thousand years. (Revelation 20:4 KJVm)

Obviously, these two requirements will also be expected of “the Remnant” which will be alive to greet the Son of Man at His return.  However, the question remains; Is keeping these two requirements enough to reach the level of being “accounted worthy”?  Unfortunately, the answer is no. 

Notice is this short parable that The Son of Man clarifies that those believers that do only what they are “commanded” to do are still considered “unworthy.”

        • “Which of you, having a slave plowing or tending sheep, will say to him when he has come in from the field, ‘Come immediately and sit down to eat’? But will he not say to him, ‘Prepare something for me to eat, and properly clothe yourself and serve me while I eat and drink; and afterward you may eat and drink’? He does not thank the slave because he did the things which were commanded, does he? So you too, when you do all the things which are commanded you, say, ‘We are unworthy slaves; we have done only that which we ought to have done.’” (Luke 17:7-10 NASB)

In other words, keeping the words / commandments of Elohim and having the testimony of The Son of Man may be enough to get you into the first resurrection, but it is still not enough to qualify you to the level of being “worthy” to escape the apocalypse?  This suggest that “the Remnant” must go over-and-above what is commanded in order to physically escape the apocalypse

To get a better understanding of this over-and-above level, let’s examine a past example of someone that was found “worthy” to escape a past apocalyptic event.

AS THE DAYS OF NOAH

According to The Son of Man, end time events are going to have a similar outcome to those experienced by Noah.

        • For the coming of the Son of Man will be just like the days of Noah. (Matthew 24:37 NASB)

Have you ever wondered why there was only eight individuals in Noah’s ark?  We know that Noah was justified by his faith in Elohim.  But just having faith didn’t get the ark built.  And if Noah and his family didn’t build the ark, then they too would have succumbed to the flood with the rest of humanity.   

So, the reason that there was only eight in the ark was because these “eight” were the only ones that were actively involved in the preparation of the ark.  And it is there effort in the construction and preparation of the ark that qualified them as “worthy” to escape the flood.

As previously stated. Elohiim has already prepared the Old City of Jerusalem as “the Place of Refuge” to protect “the Remnant” from the future apocalyptic events.  But this doesn’t mean that there is nothing expected of “the Remnant” during the Greater Second Exodus.

To get a better understanding of this, let’s examine the end time Kingdom parable of the Talents (Matthew 25:14-30).  

The parable begins by identifying a Master who had three servants. The Master being the Son of Man and the three servants being believers, which suggest that these believers understand the Gospel of the Kingdom as the message of the Greater Second Exodus. 

        • “For it is just like a man about to go on a journey, who called his own slaves and entrusted his possessions to them. (Matthew 25:14 NASB)

I would also like to point out that this Kingdom parable (like the other Kingdom parables)   is describing believers that are alive at the Second Coming of the Son of Man and the end of the age.

        •  “Now after a long time the Master of those slaves *came and *settled accounts with them.  (Matthew 25:19 NASB)

In the parable, three servants are given “talents” in order to produce a profit while their Master was away.  In other words, they are expected to share the Gospel of the Kingdom and to call others to the Greater Second Exodus. 

        • To one he gave five talents, to another, two, and to another, one, each according to his own ability; and he went on his journey.  (Matthew 25:15 NASB)

At the Masters return, two of the servants produced a profit and were found “worthy.”

        • The one who had received the five talents came up and brought five more talents, saying, ‘Master, you entrusted five talents to me. See, I have gained five more talents.’ His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful slave. You were faithful with a few things, I will put you in charge of many things; enter into the joy of your master.’
        •  “Also the one who had received the two talents came up and said, ‘Master, you entrusted two talents to me. See, I have gained two more talents.’  His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful slave. You were faithful with a few things, I will put you in charge of many things; enter into the joy of your master.’ (Matthew 25:19-23 NASB)

Unfortunately, the one servant buried his talent.

        •  “And the one also who had received the one talent came up and said, ‘Master, I knew you to be a hard man, reaping where you did not sow and gathering where you scattered no seed. 25 And I was afraid, and went away and hid your talent in the ground. See, you have what is yours.’  (Matthew 25:24-25 NASB)

In other words, the third servant was aware of the Greater Second Exodus, but did not share the Gospel with anyone.  This lack of action got this servant purged from the other two servants which were “worthy” to enter into “the joy of the Master.”

        • Throw out the worthless slave into the outer darkness; in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.  (Matthew 25:30 NASB)

IN REVIEW

The only “end time”  believers that are going be “accounted worthy to escape” the predicted apocalypse  and to be alive to greet the Son of Man at His return, will be those that hear the calling of the Greater Second Exodus and understand the need to actively prepare themselves and to reach others with the Gospel of the Greater Second Exodus.
