Prov 2:1My son, if you accept my words
and store up my commands within you,
2turning your ear to wisdom
and applying your heart to understanding,
3and if you call out for insight
and cry aloud for understanding,
4and if you look for it as for silver
and search for it as for hidden treasure,
5then you will understand the fear of the LORD
and find the knowledge of God.
What He showed me raised more questions than were answered, but I am thankful for what was given nonetheless. What was shown to this writer? It is likely that most if not all of what we have been taught about the book of Revelation is wrong. What? Before you think "uh oh, he's gone off the deep end this time," hear me out. Everything that the bible says will happen, will happen, no debate there....What trashes everything we've been taught about the book is when these things will happen.
The "when" things will happen is a very very big deal in understanding the book, and almost everyone I've heard or read that teaches Revelation has had it wrong. What I would like to do here is like going to a bowling alley. I am throwing the bowling ball down the lane and scoring a perfect "strike" on all the pins (our understanding the "when" of Revelation), knocking them to the ground. This writer will also tell you that he does not know enough to stand any of the pins back up for you, he just knows enough to knock them down. That means this writer does not know much...
So here goes with "knocking pins down:"
The Fall of Babylon
Rev 18:7 How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow. 8Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.
The "what" here is plagues in one day. Death, mourning, famine and being utterly burned with fire, that's the what that's going to happen to Babylon. The "when" is in one day. The "what" in this case are seals 2,3,4: plague, famine, death.
So what? So, the linear reading of the book of Revelation is out the window. That is, reading Revelation 1-22 and thinking to yourself, okay, so Rev 1 happens first, then Rev 2, then Rev 3, then Rev 4, etc etc etc will not give you a good understanding of "when" things are going to happen.
The most stunning example of "we have no remote idea when things are going to happen" is this. In Revelation 10 we read:
Rev 10:5And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven, 6And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer: 7But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.
|If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive, but for|
the sake of the elect those days will be shortened
Once again, we are coming at this thing from a time perspective, a "when" perspective, and once again, we see the Lord messing with time, changing the "rules" as we have known them.
Will there be a day during the time of "Jacob's trouble" when time will be no more? Correct. Will days be shortened? Correct. Will judgments be happening all in one day, not over a long period of time? Correct. Where does that leave us? How about here:

Isaiah 30: 9These are rebellious people, deceitful children,
children unwilling to listen to the LORD’s instruction.
10They say to the seers,
“See no more visions!”
and to the prophets,
“Give us no more visions of what is right!
Tell us pleasant things,
11Leave this way,
get off this path,
and stop confronting us
with the Holy One of Israel!”
|... For God has not destined us for wrath, but to obtain
salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ,
I could care less about the liars and thieves who tell us "but the sword and famine and death and disease are not God's wrath, so pony up so you can take all this wrath on the chin like a "good" christian!" The bible tells us what is, and is not God's wrath. When God tells us that plague, the sword, and famine are His wrath, then the argument is over, case is closed, issue settled:
Ezekiel 6:12 He that is far away will die of the plague, and he that is near will fall by the sword, and he that survives and is spared will die of famine. So will I spend my wrath upon them.
Rev 6:3When the Lamb opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, “Come!” 4Then another horse came out, a fiery red one. Its rider was given power to take peace from the earth and to make men slay each other. To him was given a large sword.
5When the Lamb opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come!” I looked, and there before me was a black horse! Its rider was holding a pair of scales in his hand. 6Then I heard what sounded like a voice among the four living creatures, saying, “A quarta of wheat for a day’s wages,b and three quarts of barley for a day’s wages,c and do not damage the oil and the wine!”
7When the Lamb opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say, “Come!” 8I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth.
If the bible interprets the bible (and we know it does) then if God's wrath is sword, famine and plague in Ezekiel 6, it can also be God's wrath in Revelation 6, a direct and irrefutable rebuke to all the "other tribbers" who do not believe a pre-tribulation rapture/escape will take place.
We are not destined for wrath, which means we are not destined for the sword, famine and plague listed in Rev 6, seals 2,3,4. That is good news, and it is the truth. I hope that these words encourage you. Our Lord sent His word to encourage us:
1 Thess 4:16For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. 18Therefore encourage each other with these words.
We are told very clearly that these words^^, rapture words...escape words....were meant to encourage us...So, if I were to tell you that there is an escape from all the hell on earth events about to take place, would that encourage you? I hope so, because that's why the Word was written to you. If on the other hand I was to tell you that you could look forward to sword, famine, plague and beheading at the hands of the anti-christ, would that encourage you? I think not, so....which point of view is more consistent with the Word of God, that which encourages you, or that which does not encourage you?
The people who will tell you that any encouragement you get in believing the Lord's own Word regarding an escape from all rapture is a false encouragement, will also tell you not to pray that you may be counted worthy of an escape from all, because (they say) there will be no escape from all. Really? Jesus says there will be an escape from all and you tell me there will not be one...hmmmm, let me think about this real hard.....Yea, okay, I think I'll go with what Jesus said, but thanks for your opinion...
Luke 21:36Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man.”
Now, if there is no escape from all as the pre-wrath and post-tribbers would have us believe, then what does that make our Lord's statement in Luke 21:36? Insane? A lie? Does it make any sense at all for our Lord to command us to pray for escape if there is no escape?
Not only does the Lord tell us there will absolutely be an escape...from all...but He also gives us contextual clues as to when this escape will happen. These are the Lord's Words, not mine. The Lord will come back for us during a time of:
being given in marriage
up to the day Noah entered the ark. Then the flood came and destroyed them all.
28“It was the same in the days of Lot. People were
29But the day Lot left Sodom, fire and sulfur rained down from heaven and destroyed them all.
Now we know the words the Lord did use to clue us in to the time of His coming. What words did He not use? He did not use:
sea turned to blood
a third of the trees burned up
all the green grass burned up
a third of the ships in the sea destroyed
a third of the sea creatures destroyed
a third of the waters turned bitter
locusts tormenting the people of the earth
Nope....the Lord Himself uses those words in the book of Revelation, just not anywhere around where He describes when He is coming back to take us where He is....
That encourages you does it not? It certainly encourages me. Will people convert and become believers after the escape? Yes. Will they pay for that conversion with their life? Most likely. Are those believers who convert after the escape the ones we read about throughout the book of revelation? It is very very very likely since the Lord had every opportunity to call those believers "the church" and He did not. Why not? The only reason that makes any sense is that the church is in heaven.
The 24 elders seen in heaven in Rev 4 are redeemed men. They have crowns on their heads and are clothed in white linen. That is proof positive that something happened, before Rev 6 or any of the seals are opened to get those redeemed men into heaven. How did they get there? I recall seeing an open door in heaven in Rev 4.....The 24 elders are men, not angels. Angels do not get crowns, are not dressed in fine linen, and do not sit on thrones. The 24 elders are not just 24 because they come from every tribe, and tongue and language and nation. Have there been more than 24 tribes, tongues, languages and nations since the beginning of the world? Yep...you do the math. The 24 represent more than 24..they are redeemed men, they are in heaven, and they got there somehow before any wrath seen in Rev 6 and onward shows up on the earth....
Do you think there is a reward for faith? I do. Do you think there is a reward for obedience? I do. Do you think there is a reward for patience? I do. Do you think there is a reward for watching? I do. Do you think the believers who are watching, faithful, obedient, patient are going to get the same treatment on earth that the unwashed, heathen, backslidden masses will get? No way.....not a chance. The Lord knows how "to rescue godly men from trials and to hold the unrighteous for the day of judgment, while continuing their punishment. "-2 Peter 2:9
You don't believe it? Well, time will tell who the wise and who the foolish are among us. I'm not calling anyone names, just reminding you of the Words our Lord used:

We are living in pre-flood days. We are living in days where restraint prevails. The restrainer has not been removed yet. Here is where this writer finds a dilemma. My eyes and ears and mind tell me that I need to stock up on guns, ammo and food. Yet, I cannot overcome the Spirit's insistence within me that they won't be needed. So I struggle. Am I defying the Lord's voice within me if I buy some small things to be ready for small scale emergencies before the escape?
The witness within me says it is okay. Let me be clear, I am not trying to advise any of you. This writer is sharing the internal dilemma and dialogue he has with the Lord in the times we live in. I have started down the road of buying some serious survival supplies many times, and each time, in a different way each time, the Lord has put it on hold. The position this writer finds himself in defies everything we see around us. Since I have not made any serious investment into survival gear, and I have asked the Lord about it many times, I am laying this issue down at the feet of the Lord. He is going to have to drop manna from heaven and post angels at my front door for protection if the world turns upside down on me while I am still "in the flesh."
In the end, the Lord does all these things for us anyway, so really, what is this dilemma I am writing about? I can watch all I want (and I am commanded to) yet if the Lord isn't on the wall with me to watch, then all my watching is in vain:
Psalm 127:1 ... Unless the LORD watches over the city, the watchmen stand guard in vain.
The floods, the snows, the winds, this world are facing biblical type events now daily....Those are not my words, I am hearing the description "biblical" from the propaganda press, so whatever is happening must be impressive. If I had to bet on it, I would be that we will see a massive, "biblical" sized earthquake sometime this year, probably here in the U.S.
I asked the Lord today, "Lord, what should I do?" and I heard (in my mind) an instant response: "do the small things."
Doing something, like praying for 3-5 minutes when you feel like you have no time instead of not praying at all, is light years better than doing nothing. This theme of doing all the small things on a daily basis that we know we should be doing has been on my mind over for weeks. What are the "talents" (Matt 25) that the Lord has given us to develop? Do something small daily to grow those talents. Watch, pray, use your talents, do the small things that matter. Focus on the essential few, and forget the trivial many. This is what the Lord has on my mind today.
Over the pasts days, the Lord gave me this mental picture of the pre-flood days (looking like a locomotive on a train track) going full speed toward another locomotive on the same track. That other locomotive was the tribulation/time of Jacob's trouble. As these two events race toward each other, in the seconds before they collide, there will be a huge unexpected (by most) event, called the escape from all (Luke 21:36), also known as the harpazo (1 Thess 4:17), also known as the rapture.
We are to be watching for this day. It is an unknown day as opposed to the day of Jesus' second coming which we can count down from the time of the abomination that causes desolation. The rapture/escape is where Jesus comes like a thief, the second coming is when He comes as a conquering King visible like lightening in the sky which is visible to all.
We are to be watching, expecting the return of our Lord when He comes 'like a thief' to take us away. The collision course that appears before us on the world stage today may just be an illusion. Perhaps the time of Jacob's trouble is further away than we think, I don't know. From my vantage point, it appears that the collision will happen soon. Regardless of when our Lord comes for us, let us be found doing what He has commanded us to do. Let us be found as a spotless bride, ready to be taken away to our mansions in heaven (John 14:2).
That is all for today, grace and peace

And yet, all of these events are being downplayed. That's the key word: downplayed. "These things happen all the time" they tell us. The same people who were caught red handed lieing about "global warming" are the same ones telling us that what we are seeing happen to the earth today is 'normal.'
Bottom line here? What we are seeing today is a foreshadowing of what the world will see during the days of Jacob's trouble, also known as the tribulation. Record setting cold, war, famine, death, comets/meteors hitting the earth, the devil and demons walking the earth, all 100% reliably predicted by the bible and it will all be downplayed...
You can bet on this, you will never see a report in the lamestream media propaganda press that tells you what you are seeing is fulfillment of biblical prophesy...you will never see it.
There are earth changes taking place that very few people will admit to. Certainly nobody in the government or any of their 'experts' will admit that what is happening to the earth was predicted thousands of years ago. The earth appears to be shifting on its axis, causing changes to the magnetics of the earth. There is a hole in the magnetosphere that NASA has admitted to thinking that no one is paying attention...well, some of us are:
The magnetics of the earth control many things, including how birds navigate....I'll let you put the pieces together. The magnetics of the earth probably also caused the extinction of the dinosaurs.
I read a book a couple years ago, cant remember the name, ill post when I do but it explained in detail how when the magnetics around the earth go awry, things get ugly here on earth..real ugly. Were the Mayans correct in their prediction that 2012 might be an ugly year? I don't know but looking around me I'm not finding much evidence that they were wrong..How does that fit into our kingdom, that is, what is happening as a result of our Lord's kingdom coming to earth? The Lord uses many ways to speak to man. Could He use the Mayans to speak to man? Yep, ALL things serve our Lord whether they want to or not. The Mayans were satanists, no doubt, but most satanic lies have large pieces of truth in them. The best lie is one that most closely resembles the truth. If you remember, the devil himself quoted scripture to our Lord in the desert, remember? It was how he did it that made it a lie.
The bible tells us that mens hearts will fail them for fear of what they see coming on the world.
Luke 21:25 ""There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea.
Roaring and tossing of the sea? Gee, I wonder if the earths magnetics got really screwed up, and there were major changes in the sun and moon, if that could cause the sea to "roar" and "toss" in such a way to cause nations anguish and perplexity? Hint: you know the moon affects the oceans tides don't you?
I am utterly amazed at the extent of this wildlife die off that is occurring across the world and nobody in the PTB apparatus will even vaguely acknowledge what is happening is out of the ordinary. The explanations they are giving today, are nonsensical to the point of stupidity. Why are people not offended at being treated like utter morons? Answer? People will accept any explanation, however moronic, however degrading, however ridiculous as long as they do not have to face the truth....
2 Thessalonians 2:10
... He will use every kind of evil deception to fool those on their way to destruction,because they refuse to love and accept the truth that would save them.
For those who have lost all spiritual sensitivity, nothing is a sign. It doesn't matter if the Lord Jesus materialized before them with the armies of heaven surrounding Him and tells them they are wrong and they have been deceived. Even then, with the Lord physically in their face they would deny Him and the truth. The Lord speaks to us of these people:
Ephesians 4:19 Having lost all sensitivity, they have given themselves over to sensuality so asto indulge in every kind of impurity, with a continual lust for more.
They have lost their spiritual sensitivity so the only thing they are sensitive to is the flesh, and even that they are becoming desensitized to due to the law of diminishing returns. The more they chase their pleasures, the more their pleasures distance themselves....they are damned twice over. They refuse to love the truth and even what they have turned to for peace (carnal worldly pleasures) runs away from them. Even when they come to understand the futility of their rebellion, they stand fast in it to their own demise.
Some of us retain our sensitivity to the signs and signals that are spiritually discerned. We have been commanded to watch, and watch we shall until our Lord shows up. We are like those who sit by a door, lamps lit, waiting for our Master to return. We are seeing the exact fulfillment of words that were written thousands of years ago. Our God can be trusted. Every Word He has ever spoken has been true. Time may be shorter than we think...keep watching in prayer, be ready, keep your lamps full of oil so when our Master comes for us we can say "Welcome Master, we've been expecting you :-)"
grace and peace

We know that no person will be able to buy or sell without the mark of the beast. Everyone will be marked. During WW2 all the Jews under Hitler's (a type of anti-christ) control were marked. Next time it wont be only the Jews, it will be everyone. The tribulation/time of Jacob's trouble will be a worldwide enslavement.
As we see the progressive rejection of the God of the bible, we see a direct, corresponding enslavement of the world. People look around America today and see what they consider to be an encroachment on their liberty and freedom and they blame the government for it! Instead of blaming the government for their lack of freedom, they should look in the mirror and see the real cause for their loss of freedom: the rejection of the true God that can be found in the bible.
A rejection of the true God leads to erosion of wealth, loss of freedom, plagues, famines, disasters of every kind imaginable, lack of education, lack of health care, and the lack of everything else that until recently has been taken for granted in the United States. The United States has been blessed in the past, there is no doubt about it. This country at least mouthed praise and worship of the true God, even if their hearts were turned away from Him. This country has had enough salt and light (true believers) to keep the darkness (and slavery that ensues from it) at arms length. These days are different though....
Who in America today is equating the loss of everything Americans hold dear with a rejection of the true God? The same is true for all the other nations of the world. Show me a country that lacks food, water, medical care, education, transportation, freedom, liberty, etc and I'll show you a country where the true God of the bible has been rejected.
This world is being enslaved, and it is not happening all at once. Its a gradual process. At some point in the future, a kind of destruction is going to fall on mankind that will get their attention. Isn't it unfortunate that things have to get that bad to get people's attention? Isn't it unfortunate that the devil himself has to walk this earth with his filthy demons and unclean spirits to wake some people up? Most people will never wake up, no matter what happens. Few will be saved, not most, and that is tragic isn't it?
Matt 7:13Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
WHY will so few be saved and WHY do so few people care about it? Todays nicolaitan preachers and teachers tell you that all you have to do is accept an easy grace "Jesus" and keep "going to church" and paying an unbiblical tithe and you'll be saved forever regardless of anything else you do, say or think. The bible doesn't read that way. John 15 tells us in no uncertain terms that some people who are "in the vine" that is "in Christ" can and will be "cutoff" from the vine which is Jesus Christ. Does that sound like an easy grace, do what thou wilt gospel to you? I think not.
Few will be saved and why is that? Don't you think that question needs to be answered? Broad is the road that leads to destruction we are told. That means there are many reasons why few will be saved. Those many reasons, this writer believes, can be traced back to a rejection of the true God, His Son/His Word.
In America, the enslavement of blacks in the past is now looked at as a crime against humanity, an atrocity, an abhorrent event in the history of the world, and I would agree with that. Yet the same people who condemn slavery in America don't seem to care much about a world enslavement that is occurring every day around them. If they do care, they display their ignorance by blaming the government for their problems. "Get involved" they tell us, "get out and vote!" they tell us, so we can "make a difference" they tell us. How utterly blind are these people? How completely without discernment are these people?
This world has a sin problem. This world has a rejection of the true God problem. This world has a refusal to obey the most powerful being in eternity problem. The people of this world have the leaders and the government they deserve in direct proportion with their acceptance of the true God and His Word.
I'm giving you a guarantee right here, right now: you can vote until you drop dead and you'll make zero progress toward what you want. You can "get involved" in your community, you can get out and vote, you can plan and organize and work till your hands fall off and you will make ZERO progress at taking back the things you hold dear. The people of this world need to get the priority straight: Matthew 6:33 ... But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness,and all these things will be added to you.
You want your freedom? seek first the kingdom of God
You want food on your table? seek first the kingdom of God
You want peace? seek first the kingdom of God
You want a roof over your head? seek first the kingdom of God
You want clothes on your back? seek first the kingdom of God
You want the corruption in this world to end? seek first the kingdom of God
You fill in the rest of the list using the pattern established above....
Unfortunately, we know what's going to happen in the future. A flood is coming, and people will continue in their wickedness by rejecting their only hope and they will be destroyed for it. If you are reading these words, know that it does not have to be you that is destroyed. As it was in the days of Noah and Lot, in the days before (pre) the flood (tribulation), an ark of safety has been prepared (Noah), a departure under armed escort out of the destruction zone (Lot removed from Sodom) has been prepared. There is coming an exact repeat of the days of Noah and Lot. I didn't guarantee that, Jesus did. If Noah and his family went into an ark of safety that provided him with physical separation from destruction, then we can expect the same. If Lot and his family were escorted out of Sodom to be spared from ALL of the destruction that was rained down upon it, then we can expect the same. There IS and escape from ALL coming. I cannot promise something like that, only God Almighty can, and He has:
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.
The Lord used the words "escape all." What does "all mean? Apparently many, many people these days cannot grasp what that word means, but they will learn...in time. This world has rejected and continues to reject the only true God and His Son Jesus Christ, and they will be enslaved for it. You do not have to be one of them. We who belong to the Lord God Almighty are not of this world, and we never were. Our kingdom is not of this world, and it never was. We are looking, watching every day for a promise to be fulfilled. Where our Lord has gone, we will go also because we were promised to go there:
John 14:1“Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God a; trust also in me. 2In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. 3And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. 4You know the way to the place where I am going.”
I am absolutely certain of this, what we should be doing today is WATCHING, through prayer, for our Lord's return. Today as I was praying and reading the Word, this was absolutely confirmed within me. We must be those servants whose master has gone on a long journey, who watch and wait for His return so when He knocks on the door we can immediately open it for Him. We must keep oil in our lamps, so we are ready for the return of the bridegroom. We must be spotless bride without spot or blemish; a fitting bride for the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
There are no 'curve balls' in our Lords words to us on the points made above. There is no tricky language to confuse us or trip us up. If the Lord told us to watch, then we must watch..NOW. If the Lord told us to pray that we would be counted worthy of escape from all, then we must pray (NOW) that we will be counted worthy of this escape from all. There are satanic agents who will steal your hope, your escape, your life and your soul if you let them. Don't let them. Hold on to what you have until our Lord returns....
