My Safe and Secret Place

Psalm 32 5 I made my wrongdoing clear to you, and did not keep back my sin. I said, I will put it all before the Lord; and you took away my wrongdoing and my sin. (Selah.)
6 For this cause let every saint make his prayer to you at a time when you are near: then the overflowing of the great waters will not overtake him.
7 You are my safe and secret place; you will keep me from trouble; you will put songs of salvation on the lips of those who are round me. (Selah.)

My safe and secret place.....Pray to this God, our Father who is in heaven today, a day when he is near so the overflowing of the great waters will not overtake you. What is coming is a storm, it will overflow mankind and kill billions. We are told by the Lord that if he does not shorten the coming days, all mankind would be wiped out. It will be that bad.

Matt 24:22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.

As you could read here yesterday, what's coming has a purpose. The purpose of the coming 7 years is not to install the new world order, not to make a handful of wall street bankers filthy rich while the rest of humanity starves, not to give the satanists of the world a playground. No, the purpose is wrath and judgement, AND atonement..reconciliation for sin, and recognizing Jesus this time around for who he is...the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

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.

Bad Kid, Good Kid

If you've got a room full of kids and the father steps out of the room for an hour, and when he comes back, half the kids are doing what they are supposed to, and half are ripping the room apart, does the father take the whole room of kids out behind the woodshed for a whipping? Does that make any sense at all? Look, this perspective is not my opinion, its what our Lord said himself..

1 Thessalonians 5:9 For God has not destined us for wrath, but for
... For God's purpose for us is not wrath, but salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ,

The tribulation has a purpose, its not some random event. The tribulation period is all seven years, not half of it, not 3/4 of it, all seven years. This week of years is known as Jacob's trouble. 69 weeks have been completed for the Jewish people and for the holy city, one week is left...for who? For the Jewish people and the holy city.

1 Thessalonians 5 >>King James Bible

1 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. 2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. 3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. 4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. 5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. 6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. 7 For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. 8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation. 9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

Is it just some great coincidence that 1 Thess 4 is the rapture, and 1 Thess 5 the Lord is telling us "they shall not escape" and "God hath not appointed us to wrath?"

Is it just some great coincidence that the Lord says (surrounding the time of the rapture) they shall not escape, and in Luke 21:36 we are told specifically to pray for escape?

They shall not escape, pray that you may be counted worthy of the escape. 1 Thess 4, 1 Thess 5, Luke 21:36, what are we talking about here? Rapture, escape, being kept from whats coming.

The Lord speaks directly and specifically to the church in Rev 2-3, a door opens in heaven in Rev 4, then we don't see the church mentioned again until they are coming back with Jesus on white horses. Is this all a coincidence? Jesus is speaking specifically to the churches in Rev 2-3, Rev 6 we see seals open and Rev 7 we see Jesus dealing directly with the children of Israel, sealing the servants of God, and the church is not mentioned? Another coincidence? Why 144,000 Jews and not a single christian? Why? Where is the church? Are we not servants of God? Yea, we are, so why isn't a single member of the church sealed? Because we are'nt here, that's why.

Many are the people trying to dance around these issues today. They try to explain to us how the 70th week of Daniel is not the time of Jacob's trouble, its the time of the church's trouble, but thats not what the bible says, that's what men say. The Lord is our safe and secret place. Yea, that's right "secret" the word so many pre-wrath and post-tribbers like to make fun of. Jesus IS coming in secret, that's what coming like a thief means...thieves don't show up with a bullhorn and sirens going off on their heads, they come in SECRET. The days of poking fun and antogonizing those who hold the promises near to their heart are almost over. If your hope and faith can be stolen from you, it probably will be. Time is short. If it costs you all you have, you must draw close to the Lord today. Do what pleases him, if you are unsure of what that is, open your bible and read it, it was written to you................

grace and peace
