Preparing for Prophetic Expectations:
Faith That Fulfills Ultimate Purpose –

Commemorating Tisha B'av is a consuming circumstance for those who are of the Judaic persuasion, differing only in that the Biblical observances were/are completely ignored to the most committed to the observances according to the Torah, Nevi'im and Kethuvim. Strangely, especially in the post-Babylonian writings of the Talmud, which is set coincidentally with the historically challenged people of Israel and the rebellion that HaShem warned against in the song of Moses.
Deuteronomy 32:4-5)
4) "The Rock! His work is perfect, For all His ways are just;
A God of faithfulness and without injustice, Righteous and upright is He."
5) "They have acted corruptly toward Him, They are not His children, because of their defect; But are a perverse and crooked generation.
This describes the very circumstances of today, in this modern generation which seems bent on extending their rebellion by seeking a destiny that does not comport to the WORD of the LORD. Yet, even as the WORD of the LORD is prophetically charged towards Israel, in the meantime, the body of Christ, Yeshua HaMashiach, is bringing His Word regarding His Creation, the Church, to fruition, which in this modern age, is behaving just exactly as He said it would be; that along with the admonitions of Peter and Paul, the final preparations prior to the promised removal of the Church are in motion and the world is being prepared also; set up for differing outcomes. This sets up Israel for her destiny.

These are the expectations that Jesus said we should be looking for; now. The world, and the political turmoil caused by the epidemic are both physical and spiritual, like that in the United States of America, are emblematic of what Jesus the Messiah said; do we believe; or face being turned away for rejecting the truth. The question was put to the test when Jesus faced Pontius Pilate in human judgement with the Pharisees (and not the general Judaic population) waiting for the Roman Authorities to act on their hatred towards the Holy One of Israel. This became yet another judgement for the unbelief of Israel, another anniversary of the destruction of Herod's Temple which sits desolated today in testimony to Tisha B'av.
It is written; either one believes in faith in the Savior (the Holy One of Israel) for redemption and eternity; or reject in the disbelief of such things and face the condemnation already determined for mortality.
Yet Tisha B'av tells of its own look into the future; how many of the Judaic prophets speak of the Temple of the future and the expectancy of reigniting flames of service to HaShem, the Holy One of Israel. We can look forward to this now; its expectancy is prophetic and the preparations for that time are nearly complete. Only those who know what to look for know what to look for.
The rest of the population that commemorate this are not in that same frame of expectancy; Tisha B'av was never to become a mundane right (rite) of observance; it is predicate to observing what is next. Who is ready; to prolong the agony or to take on victory?
