The sickness, the perversion, the wickedness, the corruption, the fraud, theft and deceit, all of it is about to be reckoned with. The change has already begun, can you see it? The fact that Donald Trump is being seriously considered for president by all voting groups tells you people have lost all confidence in today's robber baron politicians. Unfortunately what is really happening is setting the stage for the anti-Christ to sweep into power but that is beside the point.
The point today is this:
We are tempted to look at the tribulation that is coming as some glory day for evil but that is somewhat shortsighted. When we really look at what is coming, the wicked are pounded to death at every turn. The seals, trumpets and vial judgements will all be poured out on a wicked world that is living in its anti-Christ "hour of power."
It will be rather difficult for people to glory in their world without God as our Lord's arm is getting a workout pounding this earth each and every day of the tribulation period. They kicked Him out of schools, out of court houses, out of every aspect of government, they even kicked Him out of the churches expecting they could do things their way if they could only dispense with the Most High God. Unfortunately for them, this place was created by and belongs to the Lord our God. Good luck trying to kick out an all powerful, all knowing God who is bent on vengeance.
Psalm 50:7“Listen, my people, and I will speak;
I will testify against you, Israel:
I am God, your God.
8I bring no charges against you concerning your sacrifices
or concerning your burnt offerings, which are ever before me.
9I have no need of a bull from your stall
or of goats from your pens,
10for every animal of the forest is mine,
and the cattle on a thousand hills.
11I know every bird in the mountains,
and the insects in the fields are mine.
12If I were hungry I would not tell you,
for the world is mine, and all that is in it.
13Do I eat the flesh of bulls
or drink the blood of goats?
Luke 21:20And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh. 21Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto. 22For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled. 23But woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck, in those days! for there shall be great distress in the land, and wrath upon this people. 24And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.
The changes have already started and we have not reached prime time yet. Next month, September 2015 is absolutely loaded with neon signs that declare change is here. In the past we have seen various warning signs but none of them was as direct and unchangeable as what we see coming next month. September will see the full count of blood moons that have spanned the past 1.5 years or so emphasizing Passover-Sukkot. What are Passover and Sukkot? They are bookends on the prophetic feasts of the Lord. Passover begins them, Sukkot ends them.
We know the Lord's feast days have prophetic significance. Some have been fulfilled (spring feasts) some have not (fall feasts). What is coming is what we read about above in Luke 21, fulfillment :
22For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.
Not only do we see the blood moon tetrad complete its cycle in September 2015, we also see the Shemitah and Jubilee cycles complete (Shemitah) and begin (Jubilee) in that month. What makes these things special apart from what we have seen in the past is mankind cannot fake or falsify these signs in any way. Good luck trying to falsify a blood moon tetrad and the last thing they want is a Jubilee. They do not want freedom, they want slavery. They do not want redemption, they want perpetual debt. Too bad for them and glory to God!
Enough is enough. Just as Lot was vexed with the filthy society that existed around him so too the righteous today groan under the absolute depravity of this generation. The good news is this is coming to an end. We must be clear though, it will not end all at once. No, the wicked will hold onto their corruption amidst the supernatural destruction and punishments that are to come:
Rev 9:20And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: 21Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.
The vast majority will take their rebellion with them to the grave. One quarter of the earths population will be wiped out first:
Rev 6:7And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. 8And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
Then, what is left will be reduced by an additional third:
Rev 9:16And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them. 17And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone. 18By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths. 19For their power is in their mouth, and in their tails: for their tails were like unto serpents, and had heads, and with them they do hurt.
And this ^^ does not even take into account the additional dead generated from judgements such as this:
Revelation 8:11 The name of the star is called "Wormwood." One third of the waters became wormwood. Many people died from the waters, because they were made bitter.
Like it, dislike it, agree with it, disagree with it, none of that matters. All this ^^ is what is coming.
So we do not end on a down note, what is also coming? Some of the greatest deliverances that have taken place since Israel traveled across the Red Sea on dry land.
Rev 12:5And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne. 6And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.
What do we see here^^? The woman will sit out the worst half of the tribulation in the wilderness being protected by the Lord. Why is it we don't hear the "pre-wrath" and post-trib arguments against this deliverance? Isnt it "escapist" for these people to sit out half the tribulation? Don't these people "need" the tribulation to be refined or whatever the silly arguments are that tell us we must go through the tribulation? If these people are sitting out half the tribulation who is witnessing to the lost? Do you see how their arguments fall to pieces in light of the straightforward teaching of the Word?
There will be spectacular deliverances in the days ahead regardless of what "pre-wrath" or post-tribulation rapture believers teach or preach or believe. The opinions of men are worthless.
The Word of God clearly states this deliverance will happen, so it will happen. I started with that deliverance to work up to this one:
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 the woman going to escape from the dragon in Rev 12? Obviously. Is this group "yourselves" (that would be you and me) going to escape from all that shall come to pass? If we are found worthy. What exactly is "all that is about to happen?" The people who argue against our interpretation of Luke 21:36 never bother to define what "all that is about to happen" is. We are constantly told to read the Word "in context" so we may properly understand what is being said. I could not agree more, so what is the context of Luke 21:36? How about Luke 21:1-35? And what do we read in Luke 21:1-35? Its the tribulation period. Enough said. Pray that you may escape ALL of it. Yes, all means all of it.
The enemy and those who serve the enemy hate the idea of escape. They hate the idea of Jubilee. They hate the idea of Shemitah rests etc. They hate the idea of any kind of deliverance period. Too bad! It is all coming. The next time someone calling themselves a Christian starts arguing with such anger that the veins are popping out of their neck and they are near profanity with the word choices they are using to tell us why there will be no deliverances coming because we (the Church) are all (supposedly) going to take the full brunt of the tribulation on the chin. When they do that, remember who hates the idea of deliverance the most.....Then you will understand the spirit that guides them.
It was the plagues on Egypt that led to the deliverance of Israel out of slavery and into the promised land. For one group it was hell on earth, for the other it was grace, peace, mercy, freedom and deliverance. We are witnessing the same exact thing setup to take place again. We do not have long to wait, the initial changes that precede the real changes have already begun. The cycle change is almost upon us.
Everything is about to change. Glory to God.
Grace and peace to you from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
