Look at the doctrine of HaBiyah HaShniyah, the Second Coming. It's found in the Tanakh. It's also in Matthew 24:31; Mark 13:27 and Second Thessalonians 2:1 which all have the same word επισυναγω which means "to gather together" and that is the HaBiyah HaShniyah הביאה השנייה But we're dealing now with a generation of scoffers and reprobates that have no faith whatsoever. But when you look at the Tanakh, at Isaiah chapter 66 verse 15 you see it says "For hinei Hashem will come with eish (fire) with His merkavot (chariots) like the whirlwind to render His anger in fury, His rebuke in flames of eish (fire)." And in the letter to the Kehillah (Church) at Philadelphia there is a Scripture (Revelation 3:8) about a door and no man can shut it. And then it says "For thou hast a little strength" Now this reminds me of little UBIQUITOUS (ubiquitous means "found everywhere") bethshalom.nyc with a little strength. That word about Beth Shalom comes from the enemies who want to shut it down and on April 10th 1994 after he (Mark Gozophsky) had come to shut it down, this man came to the door of Beth Shalom, this guy (I'll call him Mark Gozophsky). He was heading up a terrorist organization.The FBI raided his offices. He fled to Israel. Somehow he got into the country. But his organization itself is a terrorist organization outlawed in Israel. But he had come to the door (of Beth Shalom) and he was going to shut it down. It was a door that this man (Mark Gozophsky) was going to shut. But it says right here in Revelation 3:8 that NO man can shut this door! The Lord showed me to go to an automotive parts place and get one of these one-way mirror screens or films that you put on the window so you could look out, but people can't see you looking out. They can only see from their side of the window a mirror, but on your side you can see everything. But these terrorists were going to make a terrorist map of where everybody lives and where they parked their cars and methodically steal everybody's car, so that you wake up in the morning and you look out the window and your car isn't there and you don't know where it is and you'll never see it again. And that was the message: "You go to this congregation (bethshalom.nyc) and you can kiss your car Goodbye." And we found out that most people are not willing--I mean it is hard enough to get them just to come two Sundays in a row, period. But if they think they're going to lose their new Buick, they won't be back at all! We found that out! And so this guy this "Mark" (that's not his real name), he had come to the door, he had looked at the door, and he said, "This place is going to be shut down" and the door, in other words, would be shut, and no man would be able to open it. So we're gonna find out if God's Word (Rev 3:8) is true or not, my friend. And so now I have to go back to 2nd Kings chapter 6 verse 17. Because there are times when you have to pray like Elisha and here in 2nd Kings chapter 6, verse 17 he has to pray that God will open the eyes of his servant to the fiery horses and chariots on the mountain. We're talking about a preview of the doctrine of הביאה השנייה the Second Coming. But is there a Second Coming? Will there be chariots of fire? Will there be myriads of angels? Will the kedoshim come? Or is that a fairy tale?
This generation of Millennials who believe in everything BUT the Bible, say it's a fairy tale. All right, friend. You say what you want, but... I'm going to give you my עדות (testimony). It says in 2nd Kings what is also my testimony, chapter 6, verse 17 "where upon the servant saw the mountain full of fiery horses and chariots around about Elisha." Now when you look at the commentaries on this Hebrew, when you look at Keil and Delitzsch, they say this: quote/unquote "OPENING THE EYES quote/unquote was translation into the ecstatic state of (Biblical) clairvoyance in which an insight into the invisible protective powers of Heaven around Elisha was granted to the servant." And this is what I'm going to tell you about right now. Because in 41 years of ministry I've only been shut down (put into a trance, ἔκστασις Acts 10:10 "trance") twice, where the Lord puts me in a trance.And He only does it when there's an emergency. He only does it when it's basically about the only way He can do it. Because we're NOT talking about little parlor tricks that evangelists use to do fundraising, where they come into a church, and they get all the little old ladies to empty their purses. Because of some little parlor trick that they're doing. No, friend, we're not talking about that; we're talking about war! We're talking about the devil. We're talking about a power encounter where the demonic people are going to do their thing, and God is going to have to do His thing; and the persecutors say, "We are going to shut this door! We're going to scare everyone off! We're going to close down this place, and we are going to exclude whomever we want to!" That's exactly the opposite of what this says (Revelation chapter 3). It says basically that the Messiah who bears the key of David's House, the supreme power of the Messianic Kingdom, the power to admit, the power to exclude, the power to his own people,the door that will open and NONE, no scribe, no Pharisee, will be able to shut it, because it's God's door! Hallelujah! So it was 8 o'clock in the morning, 8 o'clock in the morning, and I was upstairs at Beth Shalom and I was I was in a frenzy, a real workaholic. And I was at the computer, and I was trying to do all this stuff, I had stuff I was trying to type, I was trying to get stuff off the Internet... and all of a sudden, the Lord just shut me down. He just shut me down. He shut me down. He shut me down. He shut me down. He shut me down. (He made me fall into a trance ἔκστασις Acts 10:10 "trance"). You understand I'm talking about a trance, I'm talking about clairvoyance, Biblical clairvoyance, I'm talking about the Lord shutting you down in ἔκστασις Acts 10:10 "trance." And what did the Lord say? What did the Holy Spirit say? He said, "The front door." Those three words, "the front door." Now I'm in a trance ἔκστασις Acts 10:10 "trance," and the Lord is speaking to me. You say "Oh sure!" "The Lord is speaking to you? Oh yes! Well have you talked to your psychiatrist about this?" I was in a trance ἔκστασις Acts 10:10, my friend! "The front door." Now, let me tell you what the Lord was looking at from up in heaven, and what I couldn't see. Out in front of bethshalom.nyc my rental car was parked. Why was it a rental car? Because they had stolen my car and I had to get a rental car. Now they're gonna play with my rental car. They've already played with my car; now they're gonna play with my rental car (they think). But they don't realize that there is a God in Heaven who's looking down and what had happened was a black car had pulled behind my rental car so that the front bumper touched the back bumper of my rental car and then they had dispatched the other car (it was a red car) and they were going to put the red car in front of my front bumper, so I could not get the rental car out at all. So that my rental car would be just as good as stolen, even though it was a rental car to replace the stolen car. That's what was going on. I didn't know that! Are you kidding? I was upstairs (in the back of the building); I couldn't see out any window. All I knew was that the Lord had shut me down in a ἔκστασις "trance" Acts 10:10. He shut me down. He just shut me down: "The front door." I said, "The front door?" "The front door." He repeated it. I said to the Lord, "What about the front door?" (I'm giving you a verbatim conversation. This is exactly what was said. God is speaking and I'm speaking. The Holy Spirit is speaking and I'm speaking back and the Holy Spirit is answering me.) I said "What about the front door?" He said "Get up and run down there immediately and stay at the front door." So I got up and I ran down there. Now I'm standing at the front door. Now I told you I had a one-way mirror on the other side of the front door. There was a window there but you could not see in, but I could see out. If you looked at this door from the outside you would just see a mirror. But I was looking from this side and I'm standing there. I'm saying, "Lord I don't see anything. What are you, what do you want me to look at?" And (it sounds surreal but) I'm talking to the Lord. He said "Put your eyes on the rental car and don't take them off." So I'm looking at the rental car. And I'm looking at it... Then I see the black car. Why is the black car parked like that? with the front bumper touching my back bumper? So I saw that there's something strange here! What's going on? And at that exact moment, the red car started backing up and I could see what he was going to do, he was going to put his back bumper against my foot bumper and in effect take my rental car and make it as useless as my car, which they had stolen; and now they're going to play games with my rental car! But what they didn't realize was, you cannot play games with God, my friend! You cannot play games with God. There is going to be הביאה השנייה the Second Coming, the fiery chariots that Elisha saw and his servant had his eyes opened to see (2 Kings 6:17) in a state of (Biblical) clairvoyance so that he could see! I'm not talking about a visual miracle in clairvoyance. I'm talking about a Biblical clairvoyance with an auditory miracle. I was hearing the voice of Almighty God. I wasn't seeing anything. I was hearing God, and God was giving me a "heads up" (warning)! So I threw the door open and I ran out there and I said, "Okay, guys, you either move these cars right now, or I'm calling the police, and you're both going to jail!" They got scared! And, you, Mr. Millennial, you need to get scared! Your soul needs you to get scared. How scared? Scared enough for you to believe in the Second Coming. Because there's a day when you will stand before Him, where this world will get a big disruption, and it's going to be God Coming! And He's going to judge the world, the sheep and the goats, and He's going to intervene. And the false Moshiach will be destroyed and all of his armies and the Armageddon thing will be a wipeout for the devil, and it's coming. It's in the Bible. It's in the Tanakh. It's in the Brit Chadasha.I believe it, as sure as I believe that Moshiach's kaporah blood washes away all my evil deeds which are written in a Book (Rev 20:13-15) and cannot be washed away any other way (Isaiah 53:11). Elisha's servant (2Kgs 6:17) had his eyes opened and saw things you cannot see with the eye of the flesh, and I had my ears opened and I heard things that you cannot hear with ears of the flesh.
First, depression is no laughing
Second, failure is depressing,
and if you are an Anti-Moshiach activist, you are fighting the Ruach Hakodesh, and
you are certain to fail.
So no wonder you are
Let me start with a
story about the Ruach Hakodesh.
It's also a story about a Jewish
man--we'll call him Ralph.
I hadn't seen Ralph
for over six months.
I was sitting in my office one day in New York
I had piles of books all around me and a mountain of work in
which I was all set to plunge.
Then, without any warning, the Ruach
Hakodesh suddenly shut me down.
Like turning off a switch.
Like pulling the plug on a machine.
The Holy Spirit just shut me
I just sat there.
I just sat
All shut down.
I had all these
other plans for the day.
I was itching to start working.
It was no use.
I had no choice.
What about Ralph?
have nothing to say to him.
I had all this other
stuff to do and that was the last thing I wanted to do when I came into
It was not on my mind at all.
And now I saw I had
no choice, because the Ruach Hakodesh was shutting me down.
Do I have to call
I dug around and
found Ralph's phone number, wondering what in the world I was going to say
to him, since it was not MY idea at ALL to call him and he was a very busy
and important man, not to be casually interrupted with a gratuitous phone
I found the phone
number and began dialing long distance.
I could hear Ralph's phone
ringing on the other end of the line.
When he answered,
what in the world was I supposed to say?
The phone was still
Then Ralph was on
the line. I remember he muttered something.
Then the Holy Spirit
gave me the words. It was a question.
Ralph was still on
I remember exactly
how the question was worded.
Ralph, "which is
to work through
this [depression]...I mean pray and fast and meditate on the Scriptures and go over to [I
mentioned a messianic
synagogue I had helped to plant] and seek the L-rd [I could have mentioned
Isaiah 55:6 but I
didn't].....OR...[I remember I said this very gently and softly, and he
knew that I loved him, I had flown on a plane more than once just to see
him]...OR...take a gun and blow your brains out and go to hell?
Which is better?"
...[the L-rd wants to know, Ralph...which is better?]
Actually it was the
L-rd Who wanted to know. That morning, workaholic that I am, all I wanted
to know up to that point was, to be truthful, When do I get to stop all
this and go to work, L-rd? But, now, right at this moment, I was in the Spirit and
really it was the L-rd actually asking Ralph the question. And then Ralph
muttered something again and wanted to get off the phone.
A couple of days
later a messianic Jewish
lady, calling from her home after she stopped by the funeral home, left a
message on my answering machine saying something like..."I know you were a
good friend of his and thought you would want to know that [Ralph] took
his life and we are all very sad here."
You say, "Phil, if
you knew he had already acquired a gun and had been planning this suicide
for sometime, why didn't you contact his family or the police or do
something to save his life?"
You do not understand
the Holy Spirit (see commentary on Ro 1:1).
I didn't know
anything of the sort. You have to understand that I am a Pentecostal and
the word of knowledge is not a parlor trick but a "ministry emergency"
tool and that tool the L-rd throws me sometimes in a crisis, and you also
have to understand that this kind of thing had never happened before in
all my years of ministry. Know also that I am something of a workaholic
and the L-rd only three times in my life has literally shut me down,
unplugging me in a kind of spiritual suspended animation, wherein He tells
me things I otherwise could not know, and on this particular day I had a
mountain of work I desperately wanted to jump into doing, and the L-rd
hung me out there in my spirit and would not let me do anything until I
picked up that phone and got the call over with that He insisted that I
make. So the Ruach Hakodesh suddenly pulled my plug and would not let me
proceed with any of my workaholic plans for the day until I made a phone
call which I didn't plan to make and which I had no idea what I was
supposed to say (I had no prior knowledge that he was depressed or
suicidal and he had never indicated that to me at any time since I had
known him) and I did not know what I was going to say on the phone until
the unpremeditated words came out of my mouth. (Mk 13:11)
But let's forget about
me. Let's talk about the L-rd. Answer me this one question. What more
could the L-rd do for Ralph?
The L-rd had helped us start a messianic synagogue near
Ralph had seen me do
of THE RABBI FROM TARSUS.
I had personally taken Ralph to a Bible
Bookstore to buy him a Bible (I couldn't get him a copy of THE ORTHODOX JEWISH BIBLE
because it wasn't finished yet).
And now moments before he committed
suicide, the Ruach Hakodesh had supernaturally warned him.
What more could the L-rd
do for Ralph?
Instead of judging just
ME, why don't you also stand in judgment of the Anti-Moshiach activists
that have nothing better to do with their time than to discourage these
"Ralph's" from salvation?
They can't wait until
they've found them and "de-programmed" them and discouraged them from

to tear it down.
When will these
Anti-Moshiach activists realize that they are fighting the Ruach
One day in the
spring of 1994 I was working upstairs in the back of Beth Shalom.
During a period of stalking, intimidation, harassment, and other types of
religious persecution, the Anti-Moshiach activists had damaged my van (one
Beth Shalom van was fire-bombed years before) and stolen my car and I had
a rental car replacement parked on Coney Island Ave across the street from
It was Sunday,
(April 10th, 1994, around 8 o'clock in the morning.)
Suddenly the Holy Spirit shut me down.
He pulled my plug. I was like a machine switched off. It was exactly as I
described above with Ralph. The same suspended animation. Precisely the
same phenomenon. This has only happened three or four times in thirty
years of ministry. This was just like with Ralph. I was working, working
working. A workaholic knows what I am talking about. And then, without
warning, the L-rd just shut me down. Just shut me down. Completely shut
down. The Biblical language to describe this phenomenon is called "being
in the Spirit."
What about the front
Go right now and
stand at the front door. (I got up and ran down the stairs and stood
inside Beth Shalom at the front door, looking out the windowed front door of this messianic
synagogue. In those two minutes I was actually engaged in a
conversation with the Holy Spirit and getting instructions, like you would
be if you were talking to another person. See Acts 8:29. Believe me,
this kind of thing is a miracle
and miracles don't happen every day, even at Beth Shalom. But I
believe the L-rd was having mercy on me because I was suffering from
post-traumatic stress from all the many weeks of persecution, and the L-rd
was throwing me a tool for this ministry crisis, because these are His
people and He loves them, blind though they are [Isaiah 56:10] as I was,
as we all were, before we were born again and given spiritual eyes to see.)
So I said to the
Holy Spirit these words in my mind: "Okay, I'm at the front door. Now
Do not take your
eyes off your rental car, even for a second.
Okay, I'm looking at
What about it?
Then I noticed that
someone had parked his red car so that his rear bumper was actually
lightly touching the front bumper of my rental car.
While I was
wondering about this, staring intently, a black car suddenly pulled in
very slowly behind my rental car and this black car put his front bumper
lightly against my back bumper, making my rental car totally penned in
between the black car and the red car.
My car having been stolen two
before (actually the car wasn't really my car-- it belonged to
a man named Yosie, who didn't need it anymore because he was in heaven), and my rental car now
penned in, these Anti-Moshiach activists thought, "This one ain't going

was dealing with the Ruach Hakodesh.

Let's repeat this so that
there can be no confusion or question.
There are two confessions here.
Each contains six little words. One Jewish confession is the holy
inspired Word of G-d

the Words from the inerrant Tanakh:

from these inerrant words
we confess "T’hei mot haMoshiach kaparah al kol

"May the death of Moshiach make kaparah for all my sins."

By the time we get to 2 Corinthians chp 11 we
see that Satan wants to corrupt and ruin by means
"knowledge," the so-called "deeper things of Satan."
Instead of staying
with the Word that was preached, the temptation of the
Corinthians was to
"go beyond what was written" and
to be seduced by extra-Biblical knowledge
(see Gen 3:5). Notice
that Eve's "Bible" only has
seven words in it.
So we primordially and
with disastrous consequences
words of G-d and
receive the contradictory words of HaSatan.
The seven words in her "Bible"
warn that death will be the result
of her moral autonomy,
of her getting her "knowledge" of good and
evil, in other words, from a certain
lethal tree rather than
from the "Bible" her husband has been
given wherein the meager
content of seven words ("oo-meh-ETZ ha-DAH-aht tov va-rah
loh toh-KHOHL mee-mehn-NOO" ...of the Tree of the Knowledge
of Good and Evil you shall not eat from it) will nevertheless tell her
how to live and not die.
But in the hands of the evil Serpent this "Bible"
can be twisted and used to deceive
her so that she hands herself over to a
rival authority, a
Bible-opposing authority, with fatal results.
Anything that rivals and
opposes G-d is an idol, and in the Book of Revelation we see that the
believers will give up
their lives as martyrs rather than compromise with the idolatrous
religion and way of
life of the pagan society of the last days. It is fair to say that one
cannot be a believer unless one
repents from all idolatry.
Whoever tries to
keep his idolatrous life will lose it.
PRAY THIS PRAYER WITH TRUE TESHUVA (REPENTANCE) AND YOUR LIFE WILL BEGIN TO CHANGE FOR THE BETTER.
