PREPARE THE WAY!
CONT., page 2
The entire Old Testament closes its message with the following important final two verses. This is the final word of the Old Testament.
"Behold, I am going to send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and terrible day of Yahweh. And he will restore the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the land with a curse."
Did you catch those last few words of that closing statement? Before the great and terrible day of Yahweh, He will send Elijah. Why will He send Elijah? Because if He does not, then He will smite the land with a curse, and the great and terrible day of Yahweh will indeed come! Did you note that important point, or these two options? It is the preparatory work of Elijah, the messenger, that averts the wrath that Yahweh plans! If Elijah comes, then wrath is averted!
Throughout these writings we have seen that the second Remnant precedes and prepares the way for Yahshua's return. The second Remnant is the preceding Elijah!
The second Remnant is also the bride, and in Carmel we likewise saw that it is the bride work that sooths and satisfies Yahshua's wrath. They are the Abigail who satisfy the wrathful intentions of Yahshua, who in gratitude declares to her - You "have kept me this day from bloodshed, and from avenging myself by my own hand" (1 Samuel 25:33). This is the bride work that averts Yahshua's wrath. Equally, this is the Elijah work that averts Yahshua's wrath. This is the work of the second Remnant, who in both testimonies satisfies Yahshua and prepares the way for His return in peace!
Thus, understanding this MOST important work and purpose of the Elijah/bride second Remnant, let us now return to Yahshua's triumphal entry and see why He told the Pharisees that if these forerunning disciples became silent, then the rocks would cry out.
What, again, were these multitude of disciples doing? They were preparing the way for Yahshua's triumphal entry. And what is it that Elijah performs as a forerunner for the triumphal return of Yahshua? In Malachi 3:1 we read - "Behold, I am going to send My messenger, and he will prepare the way before Me." The work of Elijah is to prepare the way for the return of Yahshua, and this was exactly what the disciples were doing as they laid down their garments and the branches before Him - they were foreshadowing the Elijah work of preparing the way for His triumphal return to this earth as King of Kings.
So, now seeing the much larger picture, let us once again raise the question - What did Yahshua mean when He declared, "I tell you, if these become silent, the stones will cry out"? We can now answer this question with one final question - For what do stones cry out? Stones cry out for ONE thing - wrathful judgment! Death! In clear contrast to the cries of peace heralded by those preparing the way for Yahshua's return, if the stones cry out, they want wrath! If the stones cry out, then all the wrath that was written of in Revelation and in other verses would indeed come to pass; not in the way Christianity expects, but this wrath would come upon them. If the stones cry out, mercy would not triumph over judgment, as it is written, but judgment would triumph over mercy. If the stones cry out, they would cry out for one purpose - wrath! If the stones cry out, they would cry out for one reason - because no one was sent to prepare the way for the coming King!
So what prevents the stones from crying out? What is it that prevents the "great and terrible day of Yahweh"? The answer is - Elijah!, the Elijah work, the bride work, those who prepare the way for the return of Yahshua and bring peace to His angry soul. If the Elijah/bride work is performed, if the forerunning multitude of His disciples cry out His praises and the proclamation of peace and lay down their garments and branches, if the Abigail quickly comes before Him with that which is due Him, then the stones MUST be silent!
This is clearly the meaning of this prophetic message regarding Yahshua's soon triumphal return. Will He return in wrath? No, for already He has begun to call out His Remnant bride, His promised Elijah to prepare the way; and He will continue to provide grace and growth to this work until the day of His return. This Remnant that comes out of Christianity will prepare the way for the return of Yahshua, and He will return victoriously in peace and in choruses of praise. STONES - BE SILENT!
