Well there was only one Yeshua that walked this earth approximately 2000 years ago. Are you willing to join the current attempt to silence His presence a second time? Or are you now prepared to open the door and allow for Him to come in and dine with you, and you with Him?
'Those whom I love, I reprove and discipline; be zealous therefore, and

he with Me. 'He who overcomes, I will grant to him to sit down with Me
