While many present day Christians await what is known as a “Pre-tribulation Rapture,” There are prophecies of the Word that have yet to be fulfilled (See “The Rapture” page to understand what the bible actually says about the rapture). We know that nothing that comes out of the Fathers mouth will return to him void- all prophecy will be fulfilled. That being said, there are some things that remain to be fulfilled. These are not just “things” they are extremely significant and noticeable events. We all know the story of Moses, as God demonstrated His power over all things- both man and nature, in an open way for all men to witness. The prophets speak of yet another “Exodus,” where God’s people referred to as “the remnant” will be led to safety in a similar way:

“And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: And the spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord; And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the Lord: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears: But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth: with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked…….. And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious. And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea. And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth. The envy also of Ephraim shall depart, and the adversaries of Judah shall be cut off: Ephraim shall not envy Judah, and Judah shall not vex Ephraim. But they shall fly upon the shoulders of the Philistines toward the west; they shall spoil them of the east together: they shall lay their hand upon Edom and Moab; and the children of Ammon shall obey them. And the Lord shall utterly destroy the tongue of the Egyptian sea; and with his mighty wind shall he shake his hand over the river, and shall smite it in the seven streams, and make men go over dryshod. And there shall be an highway for the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria; like as it was to Israel in the day that he came up out of the land of Egypt. ~ Isaiah 11:1-4, 10-16

You can see here, that this is a prophecy that has yet to be fulfilled. Never in the history of mankind has God created a “highway” for the remnant of His people just as he did when they came out of Egypt with Moses.  Never has He gathered the outcasts of Israel with power from the four corners of the earth.  The last “return” to Jerusalem of an actual ‘remnant’ was when the Jews were wiped out during the Babylonian invasion. A remnant of the living were enslaved in Babylon during the time of Daniel, and a remnant returned to Jerusalem with Zerubbabel and Joshua- but this came into being by the order of the King of Babylon. They did not return to Jerusalem in a way that has similarities in demonstrations of power to the Exodus of Moses. They returned peaceably with the blessing of the highest King in existence at the time. This prophecy will not return void, because it was spoken by the Lord himself through the prophet Isaiah. In order for there to be a remnant, many must die first- just as during the time of Jeremiah and the Babylonian invasion, where many were killed leaving only a remnant. Micah also prophesied that the wonders from the time of Moses would be seen again:

“Feed thy people with thy rod, the flock of thine heritage, which dwell solitarily in the wood, in the midst of Carmel: let them feed in Bashan and Gilead, as in the days of old. According to the days of thy coming out of the land of Egypt will I shew unto him marvellous things. The nations shall see and be confounded at all their might: they shall lay their hand upon their mouth, their ears shall be deaf. They shall lick the dust like a serpent, they shall move out of their holes like worms of the earth: they shall be afraid of the Lord our God, and shall fear because of thee. Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? he retaineth not his anger for ever, because he delighteth in mercy. He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea. Thou wilt perform the truth to Jacob, and the mercy to Abraham, which thou hast sworn unto our fathers from the days of old.” ~ Micah 7:14-20

Again, never since the time of Moses have these wonders been seen, yet here Micah also prophesies that these things will come once again. Peter also speaks of a prophet that will be raised up just like Moses, in his Spirit filled speech of Acts 3. Please note, Jesus doesn’t qualify to be the prophet that is “like Moses”, as Jesus is much higher than Moses being the Son of God, the Word made Flesh:

“And now, brethren, I wot that through ignorance ye did it, as did also your rulers. But those things, which God before had shewed by the mouth of all his prophets, that Christ should suffer, he hath so fulfilled. Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord. And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you: Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began. For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you. And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people. Yea, and all the prophets from Samuel and those that follow after, as many as have spoken, have likewise foretold of these days. Ye are the children of the prophets, and of the covenant which God made with our fathers, saying unto Abraham, And in thy seed shall all the kindreds of the earth be blessed. Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities.” ~ Acts 3:17-26

We can see here the Jesus waits in heaven until the time of the Restitution (restoration) of all things. Then Peter speaks of Moses who prophesied of another prophet being raised up “of your brethren” that will be just like him. Name a prophet that has come that even slightly resembles Moses since the time of this speech of Peter. I can’t name one- there hasn’t been one. Jesus waits in heaven until the earth and His enemies are made into his footstool. Will it be this prophet that is like Moses who will in the same way bring about this restoration, lead the ‘remnant’ via the power of God, and will make Jesus’ enemies into His footstool:

“And every priest stands ministering daily and offering repeatedly the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. But this Man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God, from that time waiting till His enemies are made His footstool. For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified.” ~ Hebrews 10:11-14

Don’t forget about the prophecy concerning Zerubbabel that indicates that he will be used as a signet ring during a time where the “heavens and earth will be shaken, and the kingdoms of the heathen are destroyed.” Zerubbabel governed and led the Israelites from Babylon back to Jerusalem to restore the city of God. Again, this shaking of heaven and earth and the “signet” of Zerubbabel has not yet been fulfilled:

”Consider now from this day and upward, from the four and twentieth day of the ninth month, even from the day that the foundation of the Lord’s temple was laid, consider it. Is the seed yet in the barn? yea, as yet the vine, and the fig tree, and the pomegranate, and the olive tree, hath not brought forth: from this day will I bless you. And again the word of the Lord came unto Haggai in the four and twentieth day of the month, saying, Speak to Zerubbabel, governor of Judah, saying, I will shake the heavens and the earth; And I will overthrow the throne of kingdoms, and I will destroy the strength of the kingdoms of the heathen; and I will overthrow the chariots, and those that ride in them; and the horses and their riders shall come down, every one by the sword of his brother. In that day, saith the Lord of hosts, will I take thee, O Zerubbabel, my servant, the son of Shealtiel, saith the Lord, and will make thee as a signet: for I have chosen thee, saith the Lord of hosts.” ~ Haggai 2:18-23

All of these prophecies seem to be pointing to a particular time (The end times directly prior to the return of Christ), and a particular servant/prophet that will be similar to the “Moses” figure. Another interesting verse comes from Jesus himself, when he speaks of both future and past:

“And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things. But I say unto you, That Elias is come already, and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise shall also the Son of man suffer of them. ~ Matthew 7:11-12

Here Jesus indicates “Elijah Shall/Will first come and restore all things.” Then he tells them that Elijah (John The Baptist) had already come and they rejected him. John the Baptist did not fulfill the Elijah prophecy, because he was rejected and all things to this day are not yet restored. The earth continues in its evil ways. Elijah will come again to restore all things, he will make Jesus’ enemies into His footstool, and then Jesus can return as prophesied! Many will die, a remnant will remain, and everyone will know the one true God and Creator that created them. Remember also the Revelation prophecy of the two witnesses that come in the end. Are you looking for Elijah? Please wake up and pay attention! Please prayerfully consider these unfulfilled prophecies! The Day of the Lord is at hand- repent and be baptized with water and the Holy Spirit for the remission of your sins, so that you can see clearly these warnings for our time.  Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ/Yeshua who out of love died for the sins of all men to offer us salvation!
