Good News

Insert any city or nation you care to below for Jerusalem and Judah:

Isaiah 3:8Jerusalem staggers,
Judah is falling;
their words and deeds are against the Lord,
defying his glorious presence.
9The look on their faces testifies against them;
they parade their sin like Sodom;
they do not hide it.
Woe to them!
They have brought disaster upon themselves.
10Tell the righteous it will be well with them,
for they will enjoy the fruit of their deeds.
11Woe to the wicked!
Disaster is upon them!
They will be paid back
for what their hands have done.

Notice the Sodom reference?  Disaster? Woe?  Paid back for what they have done?  In all this what does the Lord also slide in there at the end?

10Tell the righteous it will be well with them,
for they will enjoy the fruit of their deeds.

Over and over again the Lord has reminded me of Ecclesiastes for the days we are now living in:

Ecc 1:9 What has been will be again,
what has been done will be done again;
there is nothing new under the sun.

Our interpretation of Scripture comes from the Holy Spirit, our level of faith and our knowledge of the Lord.  This helps to explain how people can approach the same scriptures from absolute opposite perspectives.  Is it possible that some people are being prepared by the Lord to enter the tribulation before it starts?  It is not only possible it is probable.  Why?  They believe they will be in the tribulation:

Matt 8:10When Jesus heard this, he was amazed and said to those following him, “Truly I tell you, I have not found anyone in Israel with such great faith. 11I say to you that many will come from the east and the west, and will take their places at the feast with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven. 12But the subjects of the kingdom will be thrown outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”
13Then Jesus said to the centurion, Go! Let it be done just as you believed it would.” And his servant was healed at that moment.

This writer has the Spirit of God living inside him as all true believers do.  This writer has asked the Lord over and over again for correction if the message written here is wrong.  "If there is no pre-tribulation escape or deliverance, Lord please just tell me!"  has been the prayer.  What has come back time and again is Luke 21:36, Revelation 3:10, Israel escaping slavery in Egypt through the Red Sea, Noah, Lot, 2 Peter 2:9:

if this is so, then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from trials and to hold the unrighteous for punishment on the day of judgment.

This writer has experienced miracles himself and has prayed for and with other believers for their (some already delivered, some on the way) miracles through faith and the power of Spirit of the Lord.  This servant has a testimony and the testimony is this:  if the Lord God has said there is an escape from all that is about to happen and we should pray for it, there IS an escape from all and we should pray for it.  The Spirit of the Living God living within me confirms this Word exactly as it is written in Luke 21:36.  The mockers, the deniers, those who point fingers and accuse, their own words are testimony against them.

This is a good news post.  Do not fear.  Do not be afraid.  The time has come to perfect ourselves as brides for the Bridegroom to be perfect for Him on the day He appears for us.  Trust the Lord and watch what He will do.  Glory to God.

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