Bible teaching with an emphasis on Israel, prophecy and the Jewish roots of Christianity
Series: “Watch Therefore and Be Ready”
Watch Therefore and Be Ready encourages this generation to be aware of prophetic fulfillment, live expectantly, and be ready for Messiah’s return. David and Kirsten Hart present this eight-part series that features teaching from Dov Schwarz, guest analyst Dr. Mark Hitchcock, reports from Israel with Chaim Malespin, Hebrew lessons, and music written by Zola Levitt.
In Isaiah 66 we see the Last Days labor pains of Israel that bring the Jewish people as a nation to “new birth.” In the birthing room, Yeshua — the Great Physician — attends Israel, whose labor pains shake the entire Earth.
The Days of Noah portend the appearance of Messiah Yeshua in the clouds to gather His people and set up His Kingdom on Earth. Three primary signs of Genesis 6 include global explosions of population, violence, and rampaging evil.
In Matthew 25:1–13, Messiah speaks in terms of Jewish wedding customs, including a midnight cry and marriage feast. He advises us to be like the five wise virgins, commanding that we “watch therefore and be ready.”
Yeshua repeated the theme of faithful and wicked servants, especially in the signs of His coming in Matthew 24:45–51 and Mark 13:32–37. The faithful servant watches for the Master’s arrival while obeying His commands, but the wicked servant who watches not, becomes ungodly and faces eternal damnation.
