The Tribulation World

A first note: sorry for all the typos/misspellings. I read some of my post yesterday and thought wow, great job.....used "lose" instead of "loose" etc. Oh well :-)

Continuing the thinking from yesterday, the tribulation world is taking shape before our eyes. Also, its important to note that even in the midst of the tribulation, I guess I should say especially in the midst of it, deception will be rampant. The result of the unprecedented deception will be many people not knowing the time in which they live.

It's going to take faith to the end in order to "get it" in your head, as well as get yourself into heaven. You do play a part in your salvation contrary to what the wolves tell you. If you did'nt, Paul would not have written to you to "work out your own salvation," not that we are saved by works. But the whole idea of being "saved" by works is a misleading line of reasoning to begin with. Getting into heaven is a TWO part equation. It's 1. entering "into Christ" or "getting in" which happens by grace through faith, then 2. STAYING there.."remaining"

Here it is in plain language:

Luke 8:13 And those on the rock are those who with joy give hearing to the word; but having no root, they have faith for a time, and when the test comes they give up.

John 15:10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love.

2 Corinthians 13:5 Test yourselves to see if you are in the faith. Test yourselves! You know, don't you, that Jesus the Messiah lives in you? Could it be that you are failing the test?

Ok, I don't want to get too far off track here....let's get back to this idea of the tribulation world forming around us and people not seeing it. This writer has posted earlier in the week on the idea that "10 kings" must be in the world first, in order for the anti-christ to show up. Since people today don't see 10 obvious kings, they conclude that the anti-christ can't be rising today.

It's not obvious, so they conclude it has'nt happened. Well, like many other things in the bible, ITS NOT GOING TO BE OBVIOUS. Take the mark of the beast for example, what does the bible say about it?

Revelation 13:18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for the number is that of a man; and his number is six hundred and sixty-six.

It's going to take some understanding and some calculating in order to "get it." How much understanding does it take to see people walking around with 666 plastered on their forehead? None. Likewise with the 10 kings that have to be in the world at the time of anti-christ rising, consider this:

Revelation 17:12 The ten horns that you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority as kings, with the beast, for one hour.

Let me ask you this, how obvious would it be to spot 10 kings today who have'nt received their kingdoms yet? They are kings with no kingdom, odd yes? Does the fact that they have'nt received their kingdom yet, negate the fact that they are kings? NO, it does'nt. So, is it possible that these 10 kings exist TODAY in our world? ABSOLUTELY. Churchianities teachers tell you since 10 obvious kingdoms are not in view, the ten kings are'nt here, therefore anti-christ can't be about to step onto the world scene. How wrong they are....

Let me give you one example of a possible "king" without a kingdom. Look at the Fed chairman Bernanke. What kind of power does this man wield? He's throwing trillions of dollars around, deciding life or death of countries by choosing who gets financial life or death. He's not elected, he's "crowned" by the powers that be. He exercises all the power of a "king" without having a kingdom. Bernanke is just an example of the few, but very powerful FINANCIAL/banker KINGS who rule and reign TODAY in this world, deciding life and death, but with no kingdom...YET.

He who has widom, he who has understanding will see it. This understanding comes from the Holy Spirit alone. Without him, you and I are as blind as everyone else in this world. Jesus said, do not be deceived...

Churchianity tells you that the anti-christ will come on the world as a man of peace because he has a bow in his hand but no arrows. I guess they need to keep reading.....

Rev 6 And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. 2 And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.

Not only do they fail to finish reading the sentence that says he has a bow, and goes forth TO CONQUER, they also fail to acknowledge.....wait for it......

Exekiel 39 2 And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee, and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, and will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel: 3 And I will smite thy bow out of thy left hand, and will cause thine arrows to fall out of thy right hand.

They'll say, yea, but that's talking about Gog, to which I'll say "the king of the Noth" IS the anti-christ. If the General of the Northern armies is the anti-christ, and he has a bow, and we see that a captain of the northern armies (GOG) has a bow with ARROWS, should we assume the anti-christ has arrows too? We don't even have to go here actually with the bows and arrows. It's clearly stated that the rider of the white horse carries a WEAPON and goes forth to CONQUER. Notice the bible does not say the rider has a scroll or a pen in his hand, or any other instruments used to sign peace treaties, he has a WEAPON.

This is another example of the shortsightedness of todays babylonian church. If there is a peace treaty signed, it won't be by the anti-christ. Churchianity will be looking one way, and anti-christ will be coming in the other way. Misdirection...deception and the church of babylon is buying it all hook, line, and sinker.

Keep watching what's going on over there in the Middle East. Watch Israel baiting the arab world. We know from the bible that Israel does'nt get really whacked until the anti-christ enters the temple by force, rapes and pillages, sets up the abomination etc.

Zechariah 14
1 Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. 2 For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.

Until that ^^^ happens, we should expect Israel to have the upper hand in the middle east.

We don't know when the Lord is coming back for us, but I have no doubt its going to be soon. Each day he does'nt show up, we need to be patient and ready for the day he does show up. Many won't be ready due to false teachers and preachers telling people that they have more time than they really have.

grace and peace
