Where did this take place? Jerusalem. Who were involved? Palestinians and Jews.
Israel is at the center of what is coming. Jerusalem and Jews are at the center of what is coming. The blood moons were real and they pointed directly to what is now taking place. We are not even a month into the Jubilee year and the fireworks are going off everywhere in and around Israel.
It is time to be ready to meet our Lord. One way or another everybody on the face of this earth is soon to be on bended knees before Him confessing He is Lord.
Phil 2:9Therefore God exalted Him to the highest place,
and gave Him the name above all names,
10that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
11and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.
We are in a Jubilee year that goes through September 2016. What begins in September 2016? A new week of years, a new Shemitah cycle, another "7". Will the fall of 2016 see the beginning of the tribulation period? Only time will tell. It appears that the rapid pace of change across this planet since the first day of this Jubilee year that final preparations and staging is taking place for just that very thing: the beginning of the tribulation.
Few people will survive the tribulation period, believer or otherwise.
Isaiah 13:11And I will visit upon the world their evil,
And upon the wicked their iniquity;
And I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease,
And will lay low the haughtiness of the tyrants.
12I will make man more rare than fine gold,
Even man than the pure gold of Ophir.
In Revelation 6 we see 1/4 of the world population wiped out, then in Revelation 9 another 1/3 is killed. There will not be many that enter the millennium in human form. What is coming is hell on earth.
Should we fear? No. We love, trust and obey our Lord here on earth just as we will in heaven. The same God who provided for us and protected us yesterday will be the same God who will do it today and every day we have left on this earth. We are to press deeper into our relationship with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. There is nothing new about this idea except the time pressing on us to get this done.
There is no time left. Events are moving rapidly all around us. There are no secrets to learn, there is no special Word from the Lord required to do what we already know we should do. Be men and women who walk with their God. Keep the faith, be patient, give thanks, rejoice, praise Him for what He has already done. Hold onto Him and do not let go. Stay in the Word, pray always. These are the things we should be doing anyway regardless of what is happening in the world.
The world appears to be in chaos but it only appears that way. The Lord has a script of events that He wrote about thousands of years ago that is now coming to pass in our days. We can read the Words of the prophets and the book of Revelation for the detailed description of those events. For most people on this face of this earth what is coming is very bad, but I also see mercy and deliverance in what is coming. Not everyone is destined for wrath and judgement. There always has been and always will be a remnant, a few that are set apart to be spared. As it was in the days of Noah (who was physically spared with his family) and Lot (who was physically spared with his family) , so it will be again when the Lord our God is revealed:
Luke 21:26“Just as it was in the days of Noah, so also will it be in the days of the Son of Man. 27People were eating, drinking, marrying and 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 eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building. 29But the day Lot left Sodom, fire and sulfur rained down from heaven and destroyed them all.30“It will be just like this on the day the Son of Man is revealed.
Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ
