    Ryan, I’ve been watching your Gospel vids over and over…. always thinking it would be so advantageous to experience these lectures in a classroom setting because when questions arise they could be asked and discussed. One that comes at this section regards Nero being the figure in Johns mind as he wrote Revelation. I have heard this before and it makes sense, however would you not agree that it does not mean that the figure will not also have a future fulfillment in another personage?

      I would love to be able to do some sort of conference on the Gospels where we could do more personal discussions. Hopefully one day God will open the door for such an event.

      I will be recording a series on Revelation soon where I will go into more detail, but I absolutely believe that the symbols and figures we hear about in Revelation are not limited to only John’s time. Rather we will see Beasts and Beast systems arise throughout history, in our own day, and in the future too until Messiah comes and crushes such wickedness

    Another question… am I correct to say that the “second exodus” we Messianics have been waiting for is not in the future, but rather it is in progress NOW, and it is NOT about us actually “going to the land en masse, backpacks loaded with tents in carts and in hand,” but it’s more that we “Exit” earth through death, and that Exit is our Exodus? And then, one day when He returns and we are resurrected, we will at that time maybe go to the land, but maybe not… it might be the whole world and not just that slice of real estate known as Israel? Am I hearing you right? Hope you find this question! Thanks Ryan.

      Hi Carole,
      I’m not sure about the future. I know it is a popular teaching, but I don’t feel comfortable any longer saying that God “must” do something that we think we see as prophecy in the Scripture. Too many of these predictions have not come true and have distracted from focusing on what we are supposed to be doing right here and now. When we consider the language used in the Gospels, especially the quotes and allusions to the Hebrew Bible, the pattern quickly emerges that the disciples all found themselves living in the time of fulfillment of prophecy and that this “second exodus” was happening with Yeshua. So, yes, I am proposing that the Gospels tell the story of how the new exodus started with Yeshua and is going on right now.

      It may be that there will be some future exodus experience with a camping trip and long walk, but it doesn’t necessarily have to happen either. While I would love to live in the land of Israel under King Yeshua, the reality is that the land of Israel is not big enough to fit all the believers, nor was it ever the goal to only populate a small section of the earth. The goal from the Garden was to fill the entire earth. I do believe that Jerusalem/Israel will be the capital, but the whole earth will become the Garden one day.
