Looking For That Blessed Hope



If there is one thing I can agree with the post-trib/pre-wrath crowd on, it is that the coming of the Lord as King of Kings/Lord of Lords, the coming of Revelation 19 cannot happen until some of the other events of Revelation play out.  That is about where our agreement ends.  Unfortunately for too many teachers and preachers today they fail to divide the Word correctly.  Every Word in the Bible that speaks of the coming of the Lord gets lumped together into a Revelation 19 "second coming" and is the root cause of almost all of their erroneous arguments.

The Lord is coming back before Revelation 19, multiple times and those who do not divide the Word of truth correctly miss them all.  Proof?  Sure:

1 Thess 4:13But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. 14For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. 15For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. 16For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: 17Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 18Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

This ^^ absolutely takes place before the Revelation 19 return of our Lord (The Bride hath made herself ready Rev 19:7 (past tense/in heaven)).

Here is another one:

Rev 14:1Then I looked, and there before me was the Lamb, standing on Mount Zion, and with him 144,000 who had his name and his Father’s name written on their foreheads.

So, here we have proof positive of the Lord's return at least twice before the "second coming" that people equate with Revelation 19.

So whats the point?

The Lord clearly and repeatedly told us what to look for.  Not the tribulation, not the anti-Christ, not the rebuilding of the temple, He told us to look for Him and His return.

Proof:

11For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, 12Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; 13Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; 14Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.

Matt 25 13Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

Matthew 24:42   Watch therefore: for you know not what hour your Lord does come.

Mark 13:35 Watch therefore: for ye know not when the lord of the house cometh, whether
at even, or at midnight, or at cockcrowing, or in the morning;

Over, and over, and over again we are warned, and commanded and encouraged to watch for the return of the Lord.  The Lord is coming back for the rapture of the Church, the Lord is coming back to stand on mount Zion with the 144,000 and the Lord is coming back in Revelation 19 to settle accounts.  That is at least three returns proven verifiable fact from the Word of God and I might have missed one or two.

The fact is, the Lord is coming back (multiple times) and one of those times is an unexpected return.  It is time to aggressively and forcefully take back every ounce of hope that has been stolen from us by the doctrines of men and the workings of the enemy.  The Lord has set an escape before us, a door will be opened in the heavens for us to path through so we will be kept from the hour of trial coming upon the entire world.  We must take the Lord and His Word at face value.

The people who will be ashamed in the days ahead are the ones who are found unprepared when the Lord does show up unexpected.  He said it is going to happen so you can be absolutely positively guaranteed it will happen.  There are at least two very great deliverances set before us, one for the Church (the Rapture) and one for Israel (the flight into the wilderness where she will be protected for the worst half of the tribulation).  The enemy hates this, he absolutely despises these facts so he fights against them with every tool in his arsenal.

The Blessed hope is before us, the great escape.  When the Lord comes back at that unexpected day and hour, lets be there with lamps burnings and a twinkle in our eyes as we tell Him "we have been expecting you Lord!" then we can give Him a big hug and go back to our real home in heaven.

Be encouraged, take back your hope.  What is coming on this world is the result of this world's rejection of Christ and the Word of the Lord.  We on the other hand embrace our Lord Jesus Christ and His Word.  Two different groups, two different destinies, two different methods of handling.  There are clear divisions made between the groups in the Word so let us rightly divide the Word of truth and lay hold of our hope. 

Grace and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Savior.

More Clarity on The Rapture

I asked the Lord to give me more information on the rapture of the Church to comfort those who read these words and to solidify in my own mind what we should be looking for.  Glory to God, He continues to provide evidence that establishes the pre-tribulation rapture.

We start here:

1 Cor 15:20But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. 21For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man. 22For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive. 23But each in turn: Christ, the firstfruits; then, when he comes, those who belong to him.

What is the Lord talking about here ^^?  He gives us the order of resurrection:

1.  Christ (done)
2.  Firstfruits (future)
3.  When he comes, those who belong to him. (future)

I see 3 resurrections there ^^ and one two of them remain in the future.  The next one in the order of resurrection is what?  Firstfruits.  Who/what are firstfruits?

James 1:18 He chose to give us birth through the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of all he created.

Romans 8:23 Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly
as we wait eagerly for our adoption to sonship, the redemption of our

So it should be clear, we are the firstfruits.  Christs resurrection is done, who is next?  Firstfruits (us).

Which resurrection is 3rd according to 1 Cor 15:20?

When he comes, those who belong to him. (future).  Now its time to disprove another erroneous teaching of the pre-wrath, post-tribulation crowd, namely that this is the haroazo/rapture:

MAtt 24:29Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: 30And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

What is this ^^?  This is, according to the timing outline in 1 Cor 15:22 is the 3rd resurrection.  Who is getting resurrected here?  Not Christ, not the firstfruits (us), but number 3:  When he comes, those who belong to him.

It was written here earlier today that we must rightly divide the Word of truth.  Divide being the key word here.  The Lord did not and does not lump all three resurrections together and call it the rapture as most of today's erroneous teaching postulates.  In the Word there is a clear division in the resurrections.  1st, 2nd, 3rd.  Who is next?  Firstfruits, that is us..

There is an escape from all that is about to happen (Luke 21:36).  We will be kept from the hour of trial coming upon the entire world (Rev 3:10).  We are the Bride of Christ (2 Cor 11:2), the firstfruits (James 1:18).  We have been proposed to, espoused to a Bridegroom that is Christ our Lord.  He has gone to prepare a place for us that where He is we may be also (John 14:1-4).  When the Father tells our Lord to go get His Bride WE ARE OUT OF HERE.

There are few subjects that evoke the kind of hate and contempt that the pre-tribulation rapture, escape from all, kept from the hour of trial issue brings out of people.  It is the spirit of the enemy working through human vessels to spew venom at the apple of our Lord's eye:  His Church, His Bride.  Speculation?  No, here is the source of the intense hatred we see and hear against the pre-tribulation rapture/escape of the Church:

Rev 12:13When the dragon saw that he had been hurled to the earth, he pursued the woman who had given birth to the male child. 14The woman was given the two wings of a great eagle, so that she might fly to the place prepared for her in the wilderness, where she would be taken care of for a time, times and half a time, out of the serpent’s reach. 15Then from his mouth the serpent spewed water like a river, to overtake the woman and sweep her away with the torrent. 16But the earth helped the woman by opening its mouth and swallowing the river that the dragon had spewed out of his mouth. 17Then the dragon was enraged at the woman and went off to wage war against the rest of her offspring—those who keep God’s commands and hold fast their testimony about Jesus.

This ^^ is not the Church, the woman is Israel but this passage of scripture drives home the point.  What point?  The enemy, the dragon, the devil hates the escape/deliverance of the Lord's people.  Even during the tribulation, currently unfaithful and Christ rejecting Israel will be physically delivered.  Proof here:

16But the earth helped the woman by opening its mouth and swallowing the river that the dragon had spewed out of his mouth.
17Then the dragon was enraged at the woman and went off to wage war against the rest of her offspring—those who keep God’s commands and hold fast their testimony about Jesus.

Why was the dragon enraged?  What made him so mad?

15Then from his mouth the serpent spewed water like a river, to overtake the woman and sweep her away with the torrent. 16But the earth helped the woman by opening its mouth and swallowing the river that the dragon had spewed out of his mouth.

What happened here?  The woman (Israel) is delivered, she escapes and it enrages the dragon.

Does this explain the veins popping out of people's necks and the red faces when they are telling us there is no such thing as a pre-tribulation rapture?  It certainly does.  The hatred comes from the escape.  The devil is perfectly fine with people preaching the pre-wrath and post-trip rapture.  Why?  Because the devil has read the Bible.  He knows the earth is going to turn into a giant blood bath which few survive.  He also knows the Lord's respect for faith.  We receive what we believe.  The enemy would like nothing better than to have every believer miss the pre-tribulation rapture so he can get his hands on every one of us possible.

There are two serious offenses that could put post-trib and pre-wrath believers in jeopardy of missing the pre-trib rapture:

1.  Lack of faith in the clear and simple promises.

If the Lord said there is an escape from all, there is an escape from all that is about to happen.  There are no unnecessary or wasted Words in the Bible.  The Lord said there is an escape from all that is about to happen and we should pray for it, however, many people on earth today say there is no escape from all.  The people who disagree with God Almighty (who gave that promise and command) could be in for a rude awakening.

2.  Disobedience.  If the Lord told us to pray to escape all that is about to happen and we willfully disobey that command (knowing full well what the Lord said), what are the consequences? 

If the pre-trib position is wrong, so what?  We are stuck here with all the rest of the believers getting through each day the same way I made it through every other day of my life, trusting in the Lord (nothing changes).

If the pre-wrath, post-trib postions are wrong and they do miss the pre-tribulation rapture due to 1. unbelief in the clear promises 2. willful disobedience (knowing the commands and disobeying in spite of knowing them) then they have a real problem on their hands.

Summary

As we get closer the Lord continues to provide evidence for what He is going to do.  Lot was physically delivered from Sodom, Noah was physically delivered from the flood.  The precedents are there, the promises are there.  We are given the order of resurrections in 1 Cor 15 that weaves itself seamlessly with Luke 21:36, Rev 3:10, the stories of Noah and Lot, the Church missing from the entire book of Revelation after Rev 3, a door opened in heaven in Rev 4 with rewarded and redeemed men showing up in heaven shortly after in Rev 4 and the list goes on.

What I have learned is, unfortunately there is no proof, none that will change some people's minds.  They have their minds so made up that if Jesus was to appear before them bodily and tell them Himself that the rapture will be pre-tribulation they would tell Him to leave.  That is unfortunate.  Maybe there is one believer out there somewhere who still has their heart open to what the Spirit is saying through the Scriptures.  One of the greatest Godly deliverances ever is about to take place and this writer would not want anyone to miss it.

Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.











































The Rapture-Rightly Divide The Word of Truth


2 Tim 2:14Of these things put them in remembrance, charging them before the Lord that they strive not about words to no profit, but to the subverting of the hearers. 15Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

As we get closer to the time of our departure, the Lord is showing me and prodding me to search for all of the unturned stones hidden in the Word relating to the escape, the rapture, being kept from the hour of trial.  2 Tim 2:15 is a big one.

The post-tribulation, pre-wrath, and mid-tribulation rapture preachers and teachers literally and figuratively do not rightly divide the Word of truth.  The key word here being divide.  Let me explain this a little more, to them there is no division at all.  All of the prophets and the entire book of Revelation are one undivided lesson telling us why and how the Church "must" go through the tribulation.

For example, they make it a point to not divide Israel and the Church in the book of Revelation.  They go to great lengths to explain to us how even though the Church is specifically not mentioned past Revelation 3 and Israel is specifically mentioned in Rev 5:5 (the names the Lord uses for Himself point directly at Israel) and beyond, somehow we should not divide the Word but ram, cram, jam the Church in there anyway by any means possible.  What is their error?  They do not rightly divide the word.

What does divide mean anyway?

Separate into parts, portions.  Perform a division. Act as a barrier between, stand between.

What does divide NOT mean?

Lump everything into the same pot and draw conclusions from it.

What is one of the most prominent errors the post-tribulation, pre-wrath, and mid-tribulation rapture preachers and teachers make?  They lump all believers, Israel and the Church, the pre-tribulation righteous along with the pre-tribulation backslidden all into one giant pot called the tribulation.

Does the Lord make divisions between Israel and the Church?  Gee, I don't know is there any difference between the Old Testament and the New Testament?  The difference is glaring yet the failure to divide error persists anyway.

Is the anti-Christ being sent to a Christ believing, faithful Church or a Christ denying, unfaithful Israel?

Are there divisions in the Word that must be made to interpret it correctly?  Obviously......

15Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

If we are going to understand the Word, a one size fits all interpretation to the prophets and the book of Revelation is not going to work.

The Word must be divided.  It has been written here for some time now that we are witnessing a cycle change from the Church back to Israel.  Proof?  The prominence of the Shemitah and Jubilee teaching and the Lord's stamp on the past 49 years of financial markets on the days of the Shemitah.  Is the Shemitah cycle a Church thing or an Israel thing?  Its an Israel thing so we must rightly divide it from the Church.

The lunar tetrad falling on Passover and Sukkot, 4 in a row during blood moons, are passover and Sukkot Israel things or Church things?  Passover and Sukkot point directly to ISRAEL  so we must rightly divide it from the Church.

The two cows with 7s on their heads point us directly back  to Genesis 41, Pharaoh and Joseph.  Are Pharaoh and Joseph Israel things or Church things?  They point directly to ISRAEL  so we must rightly divide it from the Church.

Does the Lord see Israel and the Church differently as things stand today in a pre-tribulation world?  One believes Jesus Christ is the Son of God and the other rejects Him, does it make a difference?  Obviously it does.  The tribulation also known as the time of Jacobs trouble (not the time of the Church's trouble) has a purpose.  Who does the time of Jacob's trouble point to Jacob/Israel or the Church?  Obviously Israel, but this is another of a litany of example where failure to divide the Word of truth plays into the post-tribulation, pre-wrath, and mid-tribulation rapture preachers and teachers interpretation strategy.

What is the purpose of the tribulation?

Daniel 9:24  Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.


Here ^^ we find an absolute treasure trove of failure to divide the Word of truth problems for
the post-tribulation, pre-wrath, and mid-tribulation rapture preachers and teachers.  Where do we start?  How about:

 1. determined upon thy people-who are "thy people?"  Oh yes, its Israel....
2.  to make reconciliation for iniquity-what exactly did the Lord Jesus do for us on the cross?  Oh yes, He was the Church's reconciliation for iniquity.  So who does this passage point to?  Israel...

And I could go on but by now you get the point.  The Word of God is absolutely overflowing with divisions that are critical to our understanding.  The strategy of post-tribulation, pre-wrath, and mid-tribulation rapture preachers and teachers is to refuse to divide, rightly or otherwise and therefore
they find themselves with the grievous errors they have today.

What happens if the Lord, according to His Word ensures that everyone receives as they believe?

Matt 8:13 And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour

If people receive as they believe, the pre-wrath and post-trib preachers, teachers and believers are in danger of missing the pre-tribulation rapture of the Church.  Our Lord is looking for faith on earth.  Which rapture position requires the most faith?  The pre-trib position.  It requires absolute faith in the Lord's provision, protection, love for His children and promises to repeat the pattern of Noah and Lot.  The pre-wrath and post-trib positions require about zero faith.  Staying here on earth, continuing the already obvious pattern of evil going from bad to worse is something even the unbelievers believe in.

I have said this here before, I would not have any believer go through the horrors of the tribulation.  If I was judge I would not leave a single believer behind regardless of what their position was on the tribulation, but I do not decide, the Lord does.  The Lord knows our hearts.

There as so many proofs of the pre-tribulation rapture and each day that I ask the Lord for more proof He delivers.  It was written here recently that obedience to the commands is a proof.  The Lord tells us there is an escape from all that we should pray for.  For the post-trib and pre-wrath believer it is non-sense to pray for an escape from all when you do not believe we escape from all.  So their doctrine trumps the command of God, isnt that foolish?  The Lord told us to watch for Him to arrive on an unknown day at an unknown time.  The post-trib and pre-wrath believers tell us this is non-sense as their doctrine dictates the Lord can only arrive after a,b,c and d happen, in essence once again trumping the Word of God.  Their doctrine conflicts with the Word, making the Word into statements of non-sense.  So once again who should we believe, man or God?

If the Lord told us to pray for an escape from all that is about to happen we would be wise to pray to escape all that is about to happen and believe there is an escape from all that is about to happen.

If the Lord said to watch for His unexpected arrival, we would be wise to be prepared and ready for His unexpected arrival, the doctrines of man be damned.....

One of the greatest deliverance in the history of the world is about to take place and many Christians are running around teaching and preaching to others to disregard it.  This is the height of foolishness.  The Lord told us time and again 1.  there is an escape and 2. it will be unexpected when it happen but we should be ready for it.

We will be kept from the hour of trial coming upon the entire world.  The time of testing and tribulation was never intended for the Church, it is the time of Jacob's trouble.  That is a right division between the Church and Israel, faith and faithlessness, right standing and iniquity.  Even now our hearts are being prepared for this great deliverance.  The Lord rewards faith.  If the Lord told us to do something and we do it with joyful willing hearts, that gets rewarded every time.  Let us be the wise virgins and wise servants who know and do the master's will while He is away.  Let us be looking for Him on this unexpected day coming soon so when He appears we can give Him a big hug and tell Him we have been expecting Him.

A Bride who sits ready, expecting the Bridegroom will be rewarded with a wedding.  Let us do what we were clearly told to do.  The book of Revelation can be confusing but the command to escape all that is about to happen is not confusing so let us do it.  We will be kept from the hour of trial coming upon this entire world.  Glory to God.

Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

The Known Day and The Unknown Day

This is another concept that wrecks many end times foolishness arguments.

Clearly over and over we are warned to be ready for an unknown day

Matt 25:10And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. 11Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. 12But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. 13Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

Mark 13:32But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.
33Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is. 34For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch. 35Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: 36Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping. 37And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.


This ^^ unknown day is not the "second coming."  The "second coming"  that most people talk about (Revelation 19 is the coming of the KING OF KINGS not the coming of the Son of man, read Rev 19:11-16 do you see the Lord calling Himself the Son of man there?  NO) is a known day.  How do we know the known day?  The anti-Christ is given power for 42 months, not a day more.  How will the anti-Christ be destroyed and how will his power be ended?

 2 Thess 2:8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming.


  ^^ This is the known coming.

So obviously there are at least 2 "comings" we need to consider:  the unknown day and the known day.

Why is this important?  At least 2 reasons, 1. it quickly dispenses with a large amount of end times non-sense teaching (like "there is only one second coming" etc) 2. Most importantly it firmly establishes the importance of us doing what we were told to do which is watch for the return of our Lord and Master.

The Lord is coming back on an unknown day AND a known day.  The Lord is coming back unexpectedly and expected.  What we are looking for, in complete alignment and obedience to the Scripture is the unknown day...

 How many people will tell you today not to look for the return of the Lord because a,b,c and d have to happen first?  What is their mistake?  Only considering the known day.  To only consider the known day and leave out the unknown day is a grievous error.  Why do I say it is grievous?  Because of the consequences.  What did the Lord say about those who are not prepared, waiting, expecting the unknown day?

Matt 25:10And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. 11Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. 12But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. 13Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

What happens to these virgins who did not prepare and consider the unknown day?  Does the Lord offer them a wink and a nod, spank them on the hand then usher them into the kingdom?  No,  the door is slammed in their face and He tells them "I don't know you......"

Do those consequences seem severe to you?  They do to me.  If it were up to me, everyone, all of the virgins would be granted admission.  I personally would not leave anyone behind but I am not the judge and I did not write Matt 25:11-12.

Do you know what issue above and beyond interpretation settles most if not all these end times debates?  One word: obedience.  Obedience trumps interpretation every time.  Does man know more than God?  Can man outsmart or out think God?  If there are questions over interpretation how can they be settled?  Obedience.  What do I mean?

We were clearly told to pray to escape all that is about to happen.

 Luke 21: 36Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

This is not optional, its an order yet how many people because of their doctrine choose to disregard obedience for their personal doctrine preferences?  They do not pray to escape all because they do not believe we will escape all that is about to happen.

Again along the same lines these people do not obey the command to watch for our Lord's return today.


Matt 25:10And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. 11Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. 12But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. 13Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

Mark 13:32But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.
33Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is. 34For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch. 35Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: 36Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping. 37And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.

The were told to watch for this unknown day but instead of watching for the Lord's return on this unknown day, they are watching for everything else BUT the return of the Lord because their manmade doctrine tells them the Lord cannot return yet.  They willfully disobey it is a matter of obedience over doctrine.

Let me make it even more clear, if we have the choice to obey a command we clearly understand or disobey in order to choose a doctrine we do not fully understand what do we choose?  What do I mean not fully understand a doctrine?  We have people, "experts" on every side of every issue just about written in the book of Revelation, that creates some confusion.  How do we settle the confusion?  Simple obedience to the commands we were given.  If we were told to pray to escape all that is about to happen, we pray to escape all that is about to happen without inserting or removing anything to fit our pet doctrines?  How hard is that?

If we were told the Lord is coming on an unexpected day and we should watch and be ready for an unexpected return, then we should watch and be ready for an unexpected return.  Any doctrine that conflicts with the simple command needs to be dismissed in preference for simple obedience to straightforward commands.

Those who think they can out-think the Lord will be proven to be fools.  Those who think they can disregard simple reading and simple obedience to straightforward commands will be proven to be fools.  Man never has and never will outsmart God.  I am not name calling, the Lord did the name calling for us:

1Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. 2And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.

Pray for all those in Christ, and your family and friends that we may all be counted worthy to escape all that is about to happen.  That is our Lord's command to us.  Be ready, prepare and be ready for an unexpected return of the Lord in obedience to the commands clearly and repeatedly given to us.  Let us be obedient children who do what they were told to do and who will not be ashamed at the coming of their Lord on that unexpected day.

Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.














































































A Tremendous Responsibility

The Lord re-impressed upon my yesterday the tremendous responsibility we have to our friends and loved ones who might not (yet ) be in Christ.  Our right standing (righteousness) with the Lord can be the difference between eternal life and eternal death for those we care about. What does the Word say?

Job 22:21“Submit to God and be at peace with him;in this way prosperity will come to you.22Accept instruction from his mouth and lay up his words in your heart. 23If you return to the Almighty, you will be restored: If you remove wickedness far from your tent
24and assign your nuggets to the dust, your gold of Ophir to the rocks in the ravines, 25then the Almighty will be your gold, the choicest silver for you. 26Surely then you will find delight in the Almighty and will lift up your face to God.
27You will pray to him, and he will hear you,and you will fulfill your vows. 28What you decide on will be done, and light will shine on your ways. 29When people are brought low and you say, ‘Lift them up!’ then he will save the downcast. 30He will deliver even one who is not innocent, who will be delivered through the cleanness of your hands.”

One of my friends was helping me yesterday and he does not know the Lord.  The Lord brought to my mind that whether my friend knows it or not, the weight of his eternal destination could be on my shoulders because of my relationship with the Most High.  The same goes for all of us who are in Christ.  What we decide on will be done (Job 22:28) and our friends and family who are not right with the Lord can be delivered through the cleanness of our hands.

We do not live by sight, we live by faith.  What we believe and what we pray for, that is what matters.  How and when our prayers are answered are the Lord's exclusive domain.  We may pray for something for years and see zero movement then in one second of one hour of one day, boom it shows up.  Always at the perfect time according to the Lord's timing.

What a tremendous burden we carry on our shoulders.  Our friends and family who are not in Christ, they are on our shoulders.  Life and death, heaven and hell hang in the balance.  If we love those around us we must not forget to pray for them.  We must not forget what prayer actually is.  It is request for transference of spiritual power from what is unseen to what is seen.  Prayer is power.

Ask any U.S. infantryman how much power he can bring to bear on the battlefield with a small radio.  The entire arsenal of military power can be brought to bear with a couple words spoken over a radio.  The same is more true for us who believe.  The infinite power that is stored up for us in heaven in Christ is accessible and available at all times by faith through prayer.

It appears that time is short.  We have no idea how short but we know it is short enough to pray for the things that matter right now today.  The friends and family you love need to be lifted up in prayer to our Father through faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.  We must bring Him our faith and His Word while there is still time to do the things that should be done.

Glory to God, He has given us the ability to move heaven and earth with a few simple words offered in faith.  The time to speak those faith filled words and request what we are going to request is today.

Grace and peace to you from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

The Godly will Be Delivered



2 Peter 2
4For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; 5And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly; 6And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;
The Godly will Be Delivered
7And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked: 8(For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;) 9The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:

Rev 3:8I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. 9Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. 10Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth

The same Greek word is used in 2 Peter 2 as Revelation 3:

of testing,πειρασμοῦpeirasmou3986an experiment, a trial, temptationfrom peirazó

Read 2 Peter 2 then pull up today's headlines.  Last night Obama lit up the White House in gay pride colors to celebrate the gay marriage ruling of the supreme court.  Such things vex the righteous today just as they vexed righteous Lot in his day.  We know how Lot was delivered and we know how the wicked who vexed Lot were punished.  The same thing that happened in Lot's day will happen again in our day. 

A great deliverance is coming, that is a fact based on the Word of the Lord:

9The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, (trials, experiments)

The Lord told Noah to build an ark, He told us to pray for escape (Luke 21:36).  What if Noah had told the Lord no because he believed in a "mid-flood" or "post-flood" deliverance?  What would have happened to Noah?  It is no difference today, we are told to pray to be counted worthy to escape all of what is about to happen.  Escape all of what?  Escape everything written in context of Luke 21:36 (Luke 21:1-35) is the context.

Noah built, we pray.  A door will be opened for us:

8I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. 9Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. 10Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.

Rev 4:1After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.

The Lord is faithful, He knows how to deliver the righteous.  That is not my opinion, that is the Word of the Most High God:

2 Peter 2:9The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, (trials, experiments)

How great of an act of deliverance was the parting of the Red Sea for Israel to cross over and escape Pharaoh in Egypt?  That was a great deliverance but great acts of deliverance are yet to come.What great acts of deliverance are yet to come?

Rev 12:13And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child. 14And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. 15And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. 16And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth. 17And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

What do we see here ^^?  The woman (Israel) be spared, protected, delivered for the worst half of the tribulation period in the wilderness. 

So....Israel who as of today still rejects Jesus Christ will be spared the worst of the tribulation?  What does Rev 12 say?  What does Jeremiah say?

Jeremiah 30:7Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob's trouble; but he shall be saved out of it.

 The anti-Christ is being sent to a world who has rejected the true Christ

 2 Thess 2: 11And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

 So Israel is being sent the anti-Christ, Israel is being sent the time of Jacob's trouble, Israel has rejected the true Christ and yet..............she will be given wings of a great eagle to fly away to escape the worst part of the great tribulation (Rev 12:13-17).  Israel will be saved out of the time of Jacob's trouble (Jer 30:7).  So you tell me, what will happen to those of us who are in right standing with Jesus Christ today?  What will happen to us to live in faith and obedience, who to the best of their ability do everything they were commanded to do?  If Israel who lives in unbelief and rebellion today is given such great deliverances, what will happen to the Church during this time of testing so great the world has never seen anything like it?

The Church will be delivered.  The anti-Christ is sent to those who reject Christ not those who have accepted Him:

 2 Thess 2: 11And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

The time of Jacob's trouble is being sent to Jacob, not the Church.

Jeremiah 30:7Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob's trouble; but he shall be saved out of it.

If unbelieving Israel is the recipient of such great deliverance in the tribulation how much more
will the Church be delivered?  Here are some facts, not my opinion but hard Biblical facts to rest on:

Fact:  The is an escape from all that is about to happen and we were told to pray for it (Luke 21:36)
Fact:  There is a door open in heaven (not earth the earth) proof positive that being kept from the hour of trial and temptation is in heaven for the Philadelphia church (Rev 3:8-10)
Fact:  There is a door open in heaven in Rev 4:1 (what are doors used for? People go through them..)
Fact:  There are redeemed and rewarded men in heaven in Rev 4:4 immediately after the door in heaven opens in Rev 4:1 (crowns on their head elders).
Fact:  The elders are redeemed men/people who represent more than 24 as they are from every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation (adds up to way more than 24).
Fact:  The church cannot be found by name after Rev 3, Israel is called out by name repeatedly:

Rev 5:5 5And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda (ISRAEL), the Root of David (ISRAEL), hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.

Rev 7:4And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.
5Of the tribe of Juda were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve thousand. 6Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Nepthalim were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Manasses were sealed twelve thousand. 7Of the tribe of Simeon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Levi were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Issachar were sealed twelve thousand. 8Of the tribe of Zabulon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Joseph were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand.

 and the examples go on.

There are multiple acts of great deliverance coming.  There is a great escape coming BOTH for the Church and for Israel.

What does the Word say?

2 Peter 2:9The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations
Yes He does!!  Glory to God.  Get ready, be prepared and be encouraged.  The best is yet to come.

Grace, mercy and peace to you from God the Father and from our Lord Jesus Christ.

The Bride, The Escape, The Rapture

I have asked the Lord recently "why have you been so cryptic about the Bride, the escape and the rapture?  If we are going to escape why not just come right out and say it.  Or another way to ask this is why leave so much room for debate?"

The answer:  On this earth we are being tested.  What especially is being tested is our faith and our knowledge of God.

1 Peter 4:12Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: 13But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.

 1 Peter 1:7 That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:


 Titus 1:16 They claim to know God, but by their actions they deny ... They claim to know God, but by their actions they deny him

2 Thessalonians 1:8 He will punish those who do not know God and ... He will punish those who do not know God and do
not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus. ..

1 John 4:6 We are from God, and whoever knows God listens to us ... ... But we belong to God, and those who know God listen to us. If they do not belong to God, they do not listen to us. 

 And the list goes on...

Why leave the rapture timing open to debate knowing that men would be at each other continually over the issue?  To test our faith and knowledge of God.  What do I mean.  Knowing our Father enables us to understand what He has written.  Just as an earthly father who has written a message to his son, his son understands the message according to his knowledge of his father so we understand our Fathers Words based on our knowledge of Him.

What about faith?  Some of the promises and/or statements the Lord has made are very straightforward and concise yet men still reject them.  For example:

Luke 21:34And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. 35For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. 36Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

Is this ^^ veiled in any way?  No, and yet men will argue with it until their faces are blue and the veins are bulging in their neck that the Lord did not actually mean what He clearly says above in Luke 21. 

What place is our heart, mind, spirit in?  What place is our faith in?  Do we really believe the Lord will do what He said He would do?  What does "escape all" mean?

Luke 21 is more or less a quick journey through the tribulation speaking of the abomination all the way through to the return of the Lord as (Warrior King Rev 19), then after discussing all this He tells us pray that you will be counted worthy to escape all of this.  How much more clear could He be?  And yet, even in the face of exhaustive rebuttals and evidence of every point the pre-wrath and post-trib teachers and preachers put forward, they always have another excuse, another reason to not do what the Word clearly tells them to do (pray to escape all that is about to happen).  This is why it has been said here the time for debate is over.  It does not matter what you show these people, they are determined to go through part or all of the tribulation in spite of specific promises of deliverance.

What makes this so sad is, what is coming is one of the greatest acts of deliverance the Lord has ever performed (right up there with parting the Red Sea) and we have the benefit of foresight knowing it is coming and people still reject it.  What would have happened if the Lord approached Noah and told him to build the ark and Noah said "nope, sorry Lord can't do it.  If I am on the ark who is going to preach to all the lost outside the ark?  I know you want to deliver me but my religious doctrine tells me to stay here on the ground where I am needed most."  Can you see how utterly ridiculous that line of reasoning is?  And yet people use the same line of reasoning for the deliverance that is coming "sorry Lord, I know you told me to pray for escape but I am needed right here on the ground to do all kinds of religious work..."  Is this heroic or foolish?  Is this faith or willful disobedience?  The Lord will be their judge.

The Bride is found in Rev 3 (new jerusalem=bride), and Rev 21:2.  The churches are mentioned by name in Rev 2-3 then mentioned no more.  Did the Lord forget to be specific or is the Church not mentioned after Rev 3 (apart from being called the Bride at the end) because the Lord is forgetful?  We know the answer, the Lord is not forgetful, He remains quite specific.  For example He specifically calls out the 12 tribes of Israel, by name in Rev 7:

5Of the tribe of Juda were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve thousand. 6Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Nepthalim were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Manasses were sealed twelve thousand. 7Of the tribe of Simeon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Levi were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Issachar were sealed twelve thousand. 8Of the tribe of Zabulon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Joseph were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand.

While specific tribes of Israel are being called out where is the specific mention of the Church (either universal or local?)  Its not there...for a reason.  The Bride is in heaven making herself ready:

Rev 19:7Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.

Notice the past tense (hath made) there ^^.


At this point I am convinced there is no proof, no scripture, no evidence you can show some people to prove that the Lord means what He says when He tells us to pray to escape all that is about to happen.  They are bound and determined to go through part or all of the tribulation no matter what anyone presents to them.  The willfully disregard one of the greatest acts of deliverance the Lord has every offered to mankind.  The only things I can compare it to is Israel refusing to go through the Red Sea in order to "witness to the Egyptians" or Noah refusing to build or board an ark in order to witness to the world doomed to destruction.  I cannot understand it.

What I do understand is this:  there is a great deliverance coming, a great escape.  A door will be opened in heaven for the patient church (Rev 3) to be kept from (not through, from) the hour of trial coming upon the whole world.  All the events listed from the beginning to end of Luke 21 we were told to pray to escape them all.  An obedient and faithful servant will do what Noah did, do what they were told to do.  Noah built an ark, we were told to pray for escape from all that is about to happen.

An escape from all is coming, that is a fact.  The Lord does what He said He is going to do.  He does not fail and He does not forget.  This fact should encourage the Church.  In fact, this post is written to encourage you.  The Lord will do what He said He would do.  Let us do what we were told to do:

36Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

^^ That is what we were told to do...

grace and peace

The Heart of The Bride

Matt 25:1Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. 2And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. 3They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: 4But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. 5While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. 6And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. 7Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. 8And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. 9But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. 10And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. 11Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. 12But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. 13Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

If we had to pick one Biblical teaching that shoots down the most end times non-sense this would be it:  The Bride and the Bridegroom.

There are so many layers to this, I hope I do not leave any of them out.  What teaching from the Bible do the pre-wrath, mid-trib, and post-tribulation teachers always leave out?  The Bride and the Bridegroom.  Why?  It absolutely devastates their arguments.  How so?  Follow along....

From Genesis to Revelation the Bible is about one thing:  A Wedding.

Genesis 1-3 Man and woman become one.  That's the wedding.
First of our Lord Jesus' miracles: John 2 Wedding at Cana: That's the wedding.
Paul's revelation of the mystery of the Jew and Gentile becoming one:That's the wedding.
Ephesians 5:31-32 God and man becoming one, Christ and the Church:That's the wedding.
Revelation 22:17  The Spirit and Bride say "Come!" :That's the wedding.

Now, take your time and settle down your heart, mind and spirit.  Do not miss this.  When a bridegroom has proposed, he goes to make a place for the bride then he comes back for her.  What condition should the bridegroom find the bride in.  Forget theology, forget debates, what is the heart of the bride and what is the heart of the bridegroom?  What is in their heart during this period between proposal and marriage?  The bride has one thing on her mind, almost exclusively from anything and everything else:  The bridegroom and the wedding..PERIOD.   Do we really have to prove this?  Do we really have to argue this?  This is self evident fact.  No go back up and read Matt 25:1-13 again.

We have heard so much non-sense and so many non-starter arguments that we have forgotten the most important facts.  We are the Bride, whose heart is solely and exclusively for the Bridegroom.  What would the Bridegrooms reaction be to coming to gather the Bride and He finds her preparing for something else besides the wedding?  Disappointment?  No, more than disappointment go back up and read Matt 25:1-13.  How many people today are preaching and teaching the Bride to do everything BUT prepare for the wedding? 

Fact:  Our Lord already came back as Savior when he revealed Himself in the flesh to the apostles after His death and resurrection John 20:19-21
Fact:  Our Lord Jesus is coming back as a Bridegroom. (Matt 25:1-13)
Fact:  Our Lord is coming back as a Warrior King (Rev 19:11-16)

So this idea that there is only one "second coming" can be dispensed with up front.  The Lord can come back in the flesh or in Spirit form whenever and wherever He wants to.  What we want to pay particular attention to is His return as Bridegroom.

So, I asked the Lord "Lord, where is the Bride then in Revelation?"  If what we are about to see is patterned after the Hebrew wedding ceremony, the Bridegroom will come for the Bride, they both will be hidden away for 7 days, then they will reappear as a married couple after the 7 days in the wedding chamber are over.  We see the Bride in Revelation 21, can we find the Bride anywhere else in Revelation?  Here is what the Lord showed me, yes we find the Bride in Revelation 3:

10Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. 11Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. 12Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name. 13He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

What do you see there? 1.  Kept from the hour of temptation and 2.  THE BRIDE

Rev 3:12 I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem

Rev 21: 9One of the seven angels who had the seven bowls full of the seven last plagues came and said to me, “Come, I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb.” 10And he carried me away in the Spirit to a mountain great and high, and showed me the Holy City, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God.

Does it fit the Hebrew wedding pattern?  Exactly. Precisely.  Where do we see the Bride in the book of Revelation?  Revelation 3 and Revelation 21.  Nowhere else.  Why?  She is hidden away in the wedding chamber.

Forget about the arguments, forget about everything and anything else besides being THE BRIDE OF CHRIST.  If we are the Bride, where should our heart be?  What should we be preparing for?  The Bridegroom.  The wedding.  Period, end of story, end of argument, end of discussion. 

If some of the virgins want to be foolish, we cannot stop them but we who have a heart for the Bridegroom should be ready and waiting for Him.  The foolish can busy themselves with preparing for everything else but the Bridegroom and we cannot stop them, but we should remain wise virgins.  When the Bridegroom arrives, He should find us ready and waiting for HIM ALONE.

If we do what the Lord told us to do we will not be disappointed.  We are the Bride of Christ and as such we should be preparing for the Bridegroom and Wedding, period.  The Bridegroom has asked us to do some things, we find those things written throughout our Bibles but the Word is very clear.  The Bridegroom will come back at a time when we do not expect Him.  No, that is not the coming of the Warrior King (Rev 19:11-16) it is the coming of the Bridegroom

Genesis 1-3 Man and woman become one.  That's the wedding.
First of our Lord Jesus' miracles: John 2 Wedding at Cana: That's the wedding.
Paul's revelation of the mystery of the Jew and Gentile becoming one:That's the wedding.
Matt 25:1-13: The wise and foolish virgins:  That's the wedding.
Ephesians 5:31-32 God and man becoming one, Christ and the Church:That's the wedding.
Revelation 22:17  The Spirit and Bride say "Come!" :That's the wedding.

I will repeat this one last time, the Bride has one thing on her mind all the time after she has been proposed to:  the Bridegroom/the wedding.  The Lord told us very clearly in Matt 25 what it will be like sometime in the very near future.  When He comes back He is going to find many foolish virgins running around getting ready for everything else but the Bridegroom and the wedding.
What will become of those foolish virgins?

11Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. 12But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. 13Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

He is going to tell them that He doesn't know them....

Let us set our hearts diligently on the Bridegroom right now today.  He is coming back as a Bridegroom and at a time we know neither the day nor the hour.  Those who ignore these things does so at their own peril.

Let us be the wise virgins who are ready and waiting for the Bridegroom whenever He show up for us.

grace and peace

The Most Likely Scenario

Here we are almost mid-June placing September 2015 about 2.5 months away.
What is going to happen in September 2015?

The only credible evidence we have that anything out of the ordinary will happen are the signs the Lord Himself has given us.  What are the signs we have seen so far that come directly from the Lord?

1.  The blood moons
2.  The Shemitah cycle
3.  The two cows with 7s on their heads.

What did not come directly from the Lord?

1.  The September 23-24 date.  Everything, and I mean everything in the past that was in any way tied to mass media has turned out to be smoke in the wind=nothing.  The evidence that something will happen on 9/23-9/24 comes from 1. hints left in movies and 2. a youtube 'prophet' that the Lord has repeatedly told me to stay away from.  So what does that leave us with?

It leaves us with this:
1.  The blood moons
2.  The Shemitah cycle
3.  The two cows with 7s on their heads.

The blood moons are all on Feast days (Passover and Sukkot=Israel).  It appears that Israel has some problems on the horizon.  The Shemitah cycle and the cows with 7s on their heads point to some severe economic distress for this world.  The Lord has already proven to us (in 2001, 2008) that yes, this cycle will affect everyone that has any ties to the world economic system (all of us).

So what?  So, every major war in history was first preceded by some kind of economic distress.  When the economy is good you cannot budge people from the lazy boy chair and tv remote control, but let the economy turn down and now all of the sudden the masses get interested.  Where does that leave us?

1. Economic Distress
2. War

What is the fastest way to accompish massive worldwide changes in the shortest amount of time?  War.  War turns everything on its head.  No approval from the masses is necessary, no votes need to be taken and everything can be shaped into new forms in a very short time.  Combine war with a few massive natural disasters and you have a recipe for a total remodel of the world stage.

Why are economic distress and war necessary?  There will be many people who will not be happy with a totalitarian economic system (necessary for the mark of the beast) so war is necessary to force it on the population.  There will be many people who will not be happy with the destruction of the muslim structures on the temple mount (necessary for rebuilding the temple).

Everyone who proposes the theory that a literal temple will not be rebuilt because of x,y,z fails to tell us what happened to 1.  The flight to the mountains from Judea and 2. The sudden destruction that follows.  There will be a literal rebuilt temple in Israel.  That is what the Word says (clearly) and it will happen.

Where does this leave us today?

We do not have to look far to see the economic distress of nations.  We do not have to look far to see the massive military movements of every country around the world.  A little child could assess the situation and tell you what is coming.  In fact, we have always known what is coming because the Word tells us the question has always been timing.

What is interesting is how our God who has always kept timing issues hidden, has now placed timing in plain sight for all to see.  The blood moons mark out specific dates and Feasts.  The Shemitah cycle highlights dates and times.  The Shemitah cycle has now been so well advertised that I have seen it mentioned in some way in every financial page I read on a regular basis.  We all know what is coming and now we know when.

Are space rocks coming too?  They certainly are (Rev 6 and 8) but we do not know when.  What we have been shown is what lies immediately ahead of us:  economic distress and war which will lead to the unfolding of everything else written by the prophets and the book of Revelation.  It starts this September.  We do not have to guess anymore, the blood moon finale is in September, the Shemitah cycle and Jubilee highlight September.  The cows with 7's on their heads clearly highlight both the Shemitah and the tribulation (both are "7" events, the Lord's signature number:  7 seals, 7 trumpets, 7 years, etc).

The timing that is just ahead of us has been given as an act of mercy.  We have all been warned of both what is coming and when it starts.  What can we do with such information?  Get right, stay right with the Lord.  Rejoice, pray, give thanks.  Our God truly is tender hearted, loving and merciful thus we have all the warnings.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.


Time is short.  Gone are the years when a person could bury their head in the sand and wish it all away so they can get on with their life.  No, this time it is different.  This time "normal" goes out the window for good.  What is coming on the far side of alot of death and suffering is His Kingdom and His will done on this earth just as it is in heaven.  Thanks be to God.

We have been told what to do, now let us do it.  Pray without ceasing, pray for escape (Luke 21:36), rejoice, give thanks, repent of any trash in your life, make yourself ready for the Bridegroom.  Keep your eyes on the solution more than the problem.  This world is one giant piece of evidence that man's ways do not work.  Everywhere around us we see corruption, death, decay, pride, jealousy, greed, envy etc etc.  That is what man has produced in all his 'wisdom.'  Thanks be to God that time and age is coming to a close.

Our God is coming and He is coming to rule with a rod of iron:

Rev 2:26And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: 27And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father. 28And I will give him the morning star. 29He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Psalm 2:7I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.
8Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.
9Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.

Glory to God, thanks be to the Lord God Most High who is vindicated by His judgements.  Enough is enough, things have gotten out of hand.  It is high time to settle accounts.  Glory to God and AMEN.
