You won’t find doomsday prophets among us. We’re not going to be calling down certain terrifying judgment on those who merit it. Our tribes are eager to tell you about something else. We want to tell you about a new and really exciting thing. We want to tell you about what we have heard — a message of a beginning.
When ancient prophets foretold the trouble that would come upon the earth, they also spoke about the coming of something new. Scientists have confirmed that many of their frightening prophetic visions are coming to pass. But for some reason no one is talking about the rest of their prophetic vision happening. Why is that? Will it ever happen? Has anyone seen what they foretold? Can anyone talk about it?
Yahshua, the Messiah, talked about what the clear sign of the end would be. In compelling words, He prophesied that the sign would be a people DEMONSTRATING, through the witness of the way they live, the convincing evidence that His mission here to save all men was real.
So you can see that the sign of the beginning is the sign of the end! No such demonstration has been seen on this planet since the first century A.D. But now, like the miracle of the conception of a baby deep inside its mother, something genuine has begun, though it is still unseen.
Many people do not like what they see in religions today and are getting out, looking for something real to be part of. So outside the camp of organized religion many strange groups are stirring up the dust. Some people call them cults. These cults are confusing the issue by making everything that is different from the mainstream look scary. But from the midst of that dust a tiny new plant has sprung forth. It is small, hardly visible, and nothing to brag about, for sure. But it is here, it is genuine, and it is BEGINNING. So we have to tell you about it.
If you happen to be the kind of person who cares about real things like love, truth, purity, and virtue you’ll be interested in hearing about this little plant. In the midst of a world gone haywire this little plant will bring about the restoration of these things. Love, truth, purity, and virtue are being lost. They should be on the top of the endangered species list of the world.
To talk like this causes some people to be suspicious. From fear and maybe jealousy they attack anything new, doubting the motives. They analyze and scrutinize every move under a microscope and argue about the ethics of it all. But those people never end up doing anything of value themselves to make a radical change in this messed up world.
So here we are. We want to do something about it. And we are trying. It is an ancient path we are striving to follow, getting back to the way things were in the very beginning, and it is not easy. We want to live like the first believers in the primitive Hebrew church. We want to do something authentic to make a different way of life. Though we don’t fit the usual description of Pagan, Christian, or Jew, we believe in the age-old root of faith that was originally very good. We cling to that holy root because it is from God. It is so easy to fall away from the original faith of the Fathers, which looks nothing like the religious institutions of today. We hope to learn a lesson from how they fell from their first love, and never stray as they did.
So what would be the sign of that new beginning, were it to happen? That sign would be Love. Yes, the witness is love. The evidence of the genuineness of all the words we may speak is Love. Where there is love there is unity. There people do not let things divide them. Where there is no division, there is peace. And where peace is, that is where God is.
The tribes are beginning to build a life together in communities. The ability to live together in peace comes from unity, and unity comes from love, and love comes from God. Sometimes it is hard to tell what "love" really is. Because love is not just that emotional feeling you have for your friend or family. If you understand that real love brings unity and you can see true unity in the peace it produces, then you can see the witness.… it’s the peaceful evidence of a life of love lived in unity.
Do you want to help us build this new beginning? The word for son and builder is the same in ancient Hebrew, because only sons can build. To help us build you must become a son of the One who is LOVE… “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become sons of God” (John 1:12). Can you accept that?
Becoming a son, you will be a builder whose heart will be flooded with the love of God, and it will overflow all around. This will be the new beginning for you personally that will enable you to be part of a global beginning, in order that a kingdom of love could be established. This is the good news of the kingdom.
So before the sign of the end can come, the sign of the beginning must come… the evidence of a kingdom of Love! This is the witness of a whole new kingdom, and this is good news — THE BEGINNING HAS BEGUN!
