Another Heads Up-Update 4/27

Update 4/27/2011-More evidence that whatever "comet" ELE-NIN is, it will bring destruction...

The confirmation keeps building that some very unfavorable (for this world) events are on their way:

This ^^ and the incoming comets this fall:

paint a picture for the balance of this year that I believe the Lord wants us to see in advance. Why, you may ask, is brother D, a servant of the Lord posting stuff like this? What does it have to do with Christianity?

It has to do with this: the Lord cares about whether or not you eat. Do you believe that? Do you believe the Lord cares about your temporal needs? Do you believe the Lord acts to warn his people? Do you believe the Lord uses mundane, ordinary people and things to speak to mankind? This writer believes that He does. Using the ordinary and the mundane instead of the "dreams and visions" so many demand ensures that faith is still required to get the message.

The links above demonstrate a taste of the ordinary, human, mundane sources that I believe the Lord is using to point people who will watch and listen to what is coming. The Lord does care if we eat. He has proven that to me over my entire life. There have been times when I existed on saltines and hot sauce, but I was thankful and I did have something to eat... He cares if we have a roof over our head or not too. How He provides these things to each believer is different for all of us. What He provides to each of us differs as well, to each according to their need.

I have read things recently that may indicate that as early as next week, things may get wild in the financial world. Anyone without their head buried in the sand should be able to see the writing on the wall. There's nothing outlandish about any part of the warning you are reading here.

What about the rapture? The escape from all rapture is coming, we just don't know when. We must be watching and ready for it every day. The closer we get to the time of Jacob's trouble, the more faith it will require to hold onto the hope that our Bridegroom is coming back for us any day now. According to the Lord's own Word, the church has been tested and is being tested today and every day. For this reason we are told we will be kept from the hour of testing that is going to come upon the entire world (Rev 3:10, Luke 21:36). Is it possible that the Lord will use pre-tribulation testing to test the Church before the rapture and the tribulation. I would say that it is not only possible, it is highly probable:

2 Thess 1:4So that we ourselves glory in you in the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that ye endure: 5Which is a manifest token of the righteous judgment of God, that ye may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which ye also suffer

Read that carefully again if you didnt get it the first time...patience? faith? persecutions? tribulation? That you endure when? that what?

that ye may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which ye also suffer

Counted worthy of the kingdom? Gee, where have I seen that before? Oh yea, now I remember:

Luke 21:36Watch 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.

How much clearer could the picture be? We suffer now, we have tribulation now, we are patient and faithful and endure persecutions now...and we pray now that we may be counted worthy to escape all of what is about to happen to the world.

Need more proof? Read on:

1 Peter 4:12 Dear friends, do not be surprised at the painful ...

... Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to
test you, as though something strange were happening to you.

2 Corinthians 13:5 Examine yourselves to see whether you are in ...

... Do you not realize that Christ Jesus is in you--unless, of course, you fail the

1 Chronicles 29:17 I know, my God, that you test the heart and are ...

I know, my God, that you test the heart and are pleased with integrity.

Job 7:17What is man, that thou shouldest magnify him? and that thou shouldest set thine heart upon him? 18And that thou shouldest visit him every morning, and try him every moment?

Rev 3:10Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.

There is a trial, a test coming for all those who dwell upon the earth. That test is not for us, the bride of Christ, the true Church. Would the Lord test a people again who have already passed the test? No, He would not and will not which is why He said we will be kept from it.

Many are the liars and deceivers who would steal your hope and faith in the promises Jesus gave us. We are the bride of Christ. That's a fact. The Bridegroom is coming back for us, with a shout at an unknown hour. That's a fact. Jesus is coming to take us where He is (heaven). That's a fact. The bride is hidden away in the bridal chamber for 7 days (7 year tribulation anyone?). That's a fact. The Lord takes the righteous out before He destroys the wicked so the righteous do not share in the punishment of the wicked (Lot and Noah). That's a fact. The post-trib doctrine is an impossibility. That's a fact. The pre-wrath rapture doctrine is a doctrine of demons (Jesus alone was found worthy to open the seals. They call Jesus' opening of the seals "Satan's wrath.") That's a fact. Since when does Jesus work out Satan's will? How utterly ridiculous and utterly satanic a doctrine is the "pre-wrath" rapture doctrine...

The pre-tribulation rapture of the church is what we can expect. It is a known fact that stands firmly on the Word of God without any "spiritualization" of the scriptures needed to make it stand. The rapture of the Church is also a mystery that obviously many do not to this very day understand:

1 Corinthians 15:51 Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all ...

... I'm telling you a mystery. Not all of us will die, but we will all be changed.

May the Lord be your guide into all truth. Do not trust a word I say, ask the Lord to be your guide in all things.

grace and peace
