The Hidden Ones - Lively Stones
As of the recording of this episode, we are two weeks into an attack launched by Hamas on the nation of Israel. The events surrounding this attack and the repercussions that follow have many believers asking if this is the fulfillment of prophecy based on Psalm 83. This, coupled with our prior series on The Millennial Reign of Christ, also has listeners asking me, who is God’s Israel? Who will be the people He delivers out of affliction? We explore an alternate idea that the true Israel of God may be hidden in the world, yet to be revealed in the time of God’s choosing. We continue our exploration into The Hidden Ones.

One last thought for today: 144,000 Jewish males will be sealed for a ministry in the Time of Jacob’s Trouble. These men are identified with the 12 Tribes. There are 12 stones on the ephod of the High Priest. Messianic Jews that convert today and believe will be caught up in the rapture along with the rest of the Church, so I don’t think they are the hidden ones.
What if somehow God gives life to the stones in the Jordan River to bring forth the 144,000? If God can make Adam of the dust of the earth, He can give life to stones. Could these lively stones be brought forth when tribulation begins and after the rapture? The 144K are sealed and physically identifiable: perhaps they are ready to be born in a day to start the new nation of Israel.
