The Tribulation Coming Into Sight

Rev 3: 10Because you have kept my word about patient endurance, I will keep you from the hour of trial that is coming on the whole world, to try those who dwell on the earth.

There is an event coming we call the Tribulation that is coming on the entire world.  Its been awhile since the entire world has been tried.  Even during the world wars, Americans went overseas to fight but America itself was untouched.  Not so today.  Today we see an example of an event (fraudulent or not) that is affecting the entire world.  This scam-demic (the virus is real but the panic and fear is entirely man made) has the entire world under lock down.  We went from business as usual to the entire world locked down under house arrest in weeks, not months or years.  Had someone told you this was going to happen a few months ago you probably would have laughed them off as some kind of nut case.  I dont hear any laughing today except from the globalists who orchestrated it all.

This brings us back to the signs in the heavens, the tetrad in 2014-2015 that is pointing to 2021-2022.  What is interesting about 2022?  2022-2023 begins the next shemitah cycle.  As brother Mark points out in his video, the tribulation is highly unlikely to start on any ordinary year.  No, the Lord has a clock and it is ticking.

All this ^^ brings us to today.  Where do we find ourselves?  During each manufactured crisis, the establishment tightens the noose around the global populations neck.  9/11 is a great example. Before 9/11 we could all go to the airport and get on a plane without being molested along the way.  After 9/11 (19 years and counting) we are all subjected to x-rays, pat downs and other invasive searches in spite of the fact that TSA has not caught a single terrorist in 19 years plotting to use planes as a weapon.  Almost two decades, and billions of taxpayer dollars later with zero to show for it and the noose has only grown tighter.  Also note that Trump in office has done nothing to loosen the encroachment that has been growing since 9/11.

Today we see what the establishment hopes will be the final nail in our coffin.  They went for it all on this one.  Global lock down, martial law, home confinement, businesses shuttered, suicides sky rocketing, calls for a global government, calls for micro-chipping/nano-tattooing the population to track everyone in the name of our "safety."  When they say "peace and safety" what happens?

1 Thess 5:3 While people are saying, "Peace and safety," destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.

So, with Trump in office maybe we get a little more time but he will not be President forever.  The clock is ticking.  Whatever the outcome of the current scam-demic we can be sure that the inroads made by todays pedophile goat worshipping elite will not be easily reversed.  The Lord put Trump in office to extend time.  He has a plan and the timing of that plan will be in accordance with His will not the will of the enemy.  That said, we can see where this is going.  Trump is coming up on 4 years in office and his cabinet is absolutely littered with globalist swamp creatures.  His Treasury secretary Mnuchin is skull and bones, his two doctor experts fauci and birx are bought and paid for by the Bill Gates foundation for enslaving humanity.   And there is a long list of others we wont get into here.  There have been zero rollbacks of oppressive measures implemented after 9/11 and for every one of the establishment figures we see depart there are 10 more embedded around them.  For all the lip service done to the fake news, nothing has been done about them either.  What could be done?  How about reinstating the fairness doctrine?  CNN would be out of business in 3 months of that was reinstated.

Whats the point?  The groundwork necessary for the tribulation to begin marches on with or without Trump in office.  Trump is slowing globalist progress, but everything still moves forward.  This brings us back to the scam-demic.  One of the effects this attack has had is economic.  Why does this matter?  Every major war going back for centuries has started due to some kind of economic distress.  Major wars are not fought when countries are thriving economically.  Now we are seeing the groundwork laid for conflict with China.  Stories (true or not) about the virus being hatched in a lab are circulating and Trump mentioned in a recent daily briefing "how do you know there will be no consequences for China" when asked by a reporter why nothing is being done to China if the virus originated there.  The south china sea is also becoming a hot spot for the Chinese and US navies.

Now we can start to put together a picture of the road ahead.  The tribulation starts with the opening of the seals in Revelation 6:

The first three seals:

1Now I watched when the Lamb opened one of the seven seals, and I heard one of the four living creatures say with a voice like thunder, “Come!” 2And I looked, and behold, a white horse! And its rider had a bow, and a crown was given to him, and he came out conquering, and to conquer.
3When he opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, “Come!” 4And out came another horse, bright red. Its rider was permitted to take peace from the earth, so that people should slay one another, and he was given a great sword.
5When he opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come!” And I looked, and behold, a black horse! And its rider had a pair of scales in his hand. 6And I heard what seemed to be a voice in the midst of the four living creatures, saying, “A quarta of wheat for a denarius,b and three quarts of barley for a denarius, and do not harm the oil and wine!”
Regardless of who we think the rider on the white horse is the fact remains this figure goes out to do what?  Conquering.  What is the second seal?  War.  What is the third seal?  Famine.  Apart from the destruction of the food supply chain this virus attack has caused have you been watching the state of global food supplies?  The pieces are coming together.

The enemy attack the world is enduring today might not accomplish all that it set out to do, initially.  But the groundwork being laid for the not too distant future cannot be ignored.  Their plans are fully on the table for all to see.  We are not talking conspiracy theory anymore we are seeing conspiracy fact manifested every passing day.  This should not however be news to us.  Our Lord told us thousands of years ago exactly what was going to happen and now we see it on the horizon.  It is not just the events that should heighten our awareness it is the events combines with time.  The Lord has given us undeniable signs in the sun moon and stars.  The lunar tetrad, the great American eclipse pointing to 2024, a series of major comet sightings in the not too distant past all point in the same direction.  Combine the signs in the heavens with the signs here on earth and a convincing case begins to emerge that the time of Jacob's trouble is not far off.

We started with this and we will end with:

Rev 3: 10Because you have kept my word about patient endurance, I will keep you from the hour of trial that is coming on the whole world, to try those who dwell on the earth.

This event that is coming on the whole world comes with a promise:

Because you have kept my word about patient endurance, I will keep you from the hour of trial that is coming on the whole world

One fact the other-tribbers like to ignore about the tribulation is it is an event with a purpose.  The tribulation is called the time of Jacob's trouble.  How can the Church possibly be read into Jacob's trouble?  Did the Church deny Jesus is the Savior of the world and the Son of God?  No.  Does the Church "need" the tribulation to be purified?  No (what did Jesus do on the cross?).  From what I read in the book of Revelation Israel is going to be protected from the enemy here:

Rev 12:13When the dragon saw that he had been hurled to the earth, he pursued the woman who had given birth to the male child. 14The woman was given the two wings of a great eagle, so that she might fly to the place prepared for her in the wilderness, where she would be taken care of for a time, times and half a time, out of the serpent’s reach.

If we were to believe the other-tribbers series of events, Israel gets to sit out the second half of the tribulation (see above) but the Church gets martyred playing hide and seek with the anti-Christ.  What part of the time of Jacob's trouble am I missing here?  We would also have to forget that pesky scripture that says we will be kept from the hour of trial coming on the whole world.  And we need to forget that one that tells us to pray for escape:

Luke 21:34“Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you suddenly like a trap. 35For it will come on all those who live on the face of the whole earth. 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.”

Isn't praying for escape "escapist?"  You bet and I am all in on that promise....The door open in heaven in Revelation 4 comes to mind with redeemed and rewarded (crowns on their heads) men from every nation, language etc in heaven before the tribulation starts in Revelation 6.  Did the Holy Spirit make a series of typos in the Bible?  Hardly.

Bottom line, the clock is ticking and the tribulation appears to be making its way above the horizon.  Here is where we separate ourselves.  While the other-tribbers are watching for the anti-Christ we are to be watching for the unexpected, yes "secret" return of the Lord Jesus Christ.  We will see who the wise and foolish virgins are once the dust settles.  We were told to be watching always, not at mid-trib, not 3/4 the way through the tribulation, not post-trib, NOW for the unexpected return of the Lord Jesus on a day and hour no one knows (not even Him, only the Father.)

What if you are wrong brother D?  How can I be wrong watching for the return of the Lord Jesus Christ every day?  This sorely vexes the other-tribbers they have no answer for it.  And by the way it wasn't a suggestion it was a command.  What is going to happen to the people who know what the Word says and willfully refuse to do it and not only that but teach others not to watch today as well?  Yes, there are believers in the tribulation, I wonder who they are.....

Matt 8:13 Then Jesus said to the centurion, "Go! Let it be done just as you believed it would." And his servant was healed at that moment.

What we believe matters.  Our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ who is the Word of God matters.  Obedience to clear unambiguous commands matters.  There are some things that are hard to understand, this is not one of them.

So, in spite of the world in chaos around us it is important to understand that our God has a plan.  He told us about this plan before we were figments in our parents imagination.  He also made us iron clad promises.  This brother intends to hold onto every promise and pray those promises back to our Lord who cannot lie.

This enemy attack was allowed.  What the enemy means for evil the Lord turns into good for those who love Him.  This nobody brother of yours would like to remind you of the hope and encouragement of the promises.  Somebody is going to be kept from all that is about to happen.  Somebody is going to escape all that is about to happen.  The Lord Jesus Christ is coming back for His Bride unexpectedly in the blink of an eye.  I think we know who those promises were written for.

Titus 2:11For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. 12It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, 13while we wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, 14who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good.

13But we do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, about those who are asleep, that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope. 14For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep. 15For this we declare to you by a word from the Lord,d that we who are alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep. 16For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 17Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord. 18Therefore encourage one another with these words.

Glory to God

grace and peace
