Well, I hate to burst the bubble, Madonna, but the Messiah came 2000 years ago. His name was Jesus. The Jews expected the Messiah to be a mighty warrior that would come in and wipe out all of Israel’s adversaries. But instead, just as we were told in the Old Testament, He came in order to provide a sacrifice for the sins of any who would believe in Him. He came as a servant, the least of all people, despised, a man full of sorrows and grief (Read this: Isaiah 53). The Jews expected Him to come as a mighty King that would establish His rule over the world. And He will do that in the end, but that’s not what He came for the first time. He came to make purification for sins (Hebrews 1:3). And He did that on the cross, bearing the wrath of God on behalf of any who would believe in Him. The next time He comes back, He’s coming to do wreckshop on His adversaries and will establish His rule over this world.
Unforunately, the Jews, as a whole, missed their Messiah. It is very sad (Romans 9:1-8, Romans 10:1-4). The One who would have cleansed their sins is the One they stumbled over (Romans 9:30-33). As a whole, they have been hardened. Now this Kabbalah religion is doing the same thing, but with Jewish mysticism intertwined. And if the Jews, Israel, God’s chosen people missed it, you certainly have missed it. Jesus Christ was the very Messiah you are looking for! Don’t miss it. The most wicked thing to ever have occurred was the Son of God being killed at the hands of wicked sinners (like myself). He was whipped, tortured, beaten, spat upon, insulted, strung up on a cross, His hands and feet pierced with nails, a crown of thorns mashed into His skull. And all of this was not what hurt him the most. What hurt Him the most was the infinite wrath of God being poured out on His soul, the full cup of wrath, mixed in all of its potency. “The deepest stroke that pierced Him was the stroke that justice gave” (Stricken, Smitten, and Afflicted). The Messiah has already come, made sacrifice for sins, died, rose from the grave, and has ascended into heaven. He will come back and wipe out all those who deny Him because He is the righteous and holy King. I beg all of you to consider this and look to Christ for your salvation, who perfectly fulfilled the law from our side on our behalf, and made purification for sins. Place your faith in Him and you will be saved and spared from the Lord’s wrath. If you don’t, you won’t.
