Has The Tribulation Started Part 3

 What prompted this 3 part post is the alarming trends we are seeing around the world that have this world on the brink of all the seals of Revelation being opened.  That plus some claiming that we are already in the tribulation now.  Is there a better way to determine if the tribulation has started?  Yes.

The tribulation is called the time of Jacob's trouble in the Word of God.

Jer 30 5For thus saith the LORD; We have heard a voice of trembling, of fear, and not of peace.

6Ask ye now, and see whether a man doth travail with child? wherefore do I see every man with his hands on his loins, as a woman in travail, and all faces are turned into paleness?

7Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob's trouble; but he shall be saved out of it.

The strongest proof that we are not yet in the tribulation is this:

Daniel 9:27

24“Seventy weeksc are decreed about your people and your holy city, to finish the transgression, to put an end to sin, and to atone for iniquity, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal both vision and prophet, and to anoint a most holy place.d 25Know therefore and understand that from the going out of the word to restore and build Jerusalem to the coming of an anointed one, a prince, there shall be seven weeks. Then for sixty-two weeks it shall be built againe with squares and moat, but in a troubled time. 26And after the sixty-two weeks, an anointed one shall be cut off and shall have nothing. And the people of the prince who is to come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. Itsf end shall come with a flood, and to the end there shall be war. Desolations are decreed. 27And he shall make a strong covenant with many for one week,g and for half of the week he shall put an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall come one who makes desolate, until the decreed end is poured out on the desolator.”

We were actually closer to some kind of peace treaty between Israel and its enemies under the Trump administration than we are now.  Biden is Obama's third term and Obama had no interest in any kind of peace in the middle east.  It was Biden/Obama who allowed ISIS to take over wide swaths of the middle east unopposed until R***** stepped in and put a stop to it.

So based on the seventy weeks test, the covenant with many has not happened therefore the tribulation has not started.  Is that it?  Cased closed, time to move on?  No, part of this exercise involves making an assessment of how very close we are and what the implications of that are.  Every day that passes by leads this world one step closer to the time of Jacob's trouble, the time of testing.  If the tribulation appears to be near, that means a pre-tribulation rapture/escape would also be near.  Do we know exactly when the escape is going to happen?  No, but we know without a shadow of a doubt we were told over and over to be watching for His coming.  We know there is a Church if Revelation 3 that has kept the word of His patience and will be kept from the hour of trial that is about to come upon those who live on earth.  We know in Revelation 4 there is a door open in heaven.  What are doors used for?  People go through them.  And we know in Revelation 5 there are redeemed and rewarded men in heaven from every nation, tribe, tongue etc.  This scenario truly vexes the "other tribbers" because they cannot explain it away so what do they do?  Ignore it.

Bottom line, the things going on around us have been allowed by the Lord our God to get our attention.  It is all a big red warning sign that everything is not normal, the alarm siren is going off to tell us to seek the face of our God.  What the enemy meant for evil the Lord our God allowed for our good.  The world was asleep before COVID, then it was jolted awake for a moment and now it is trying to go back to sleep again.  The masks people are forced to wear are signs of judgement, they are signs of enslavement.  The vaccine poison that is being pushed harder than anything else this writer has seen in his lifetime are also a judgement.  It is interested that those most under judgement are also those most disposed to turn blue in the face arguing with us that "masks are good" and "vaccines are safe and effective."  A real catch 22, those preach and promote their own judgement, rushing toward it at breakneck speed.

The scamdemic was meant to be a wake up call to the Church.  Every day we have to endure the slavery to masks and hear the sales pitch to get injected with their sterilization vaccine poison is another day we should be dropping to our knees and crying out to the Lord our God for deliverance.  That is the point of this entire exercise.  We cannot say we have not been warned.  The tribulation appears to be right around the corner and we have been given every chance to drop to our knees in prayer, repent and prepare ourselves for what we see on the horizon.

Now is the time to pray.  The Lord told us there is an escape from all that is about to happen and we are to pray for it.  Unfortunately for many they not only refuse to pray for escape but teach others not to pray for escape as well.  The Lord told us that our faith and patience will be rewarded by being kept from the hour of trial that is coming up the entire world.  These are great, fantastic, wonderful promises that we should be hanging onto like a life raft in a storm.  The Lord God cannot lie not will He.  He also does not command non-sense.  If there was no escape from all, He would not have told us to pray for it.

There is a solution to the rapture problem and that is watching for the return of the Lord each and every day.  You cannot be misled if you do this.  This is exactly what the Lord told us to do over and over and over again.  The rapture/escape timing is less important than our watching.  We were told this:

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.”

Always means now, today.

Mark 13

32“But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. 33Be on guard! Be alert e ! You do not know when that time will come. 34It’s like a man going away: He leaves his house and puts his servants in charge, each with their assigned task, and tells the one at the door to keep watch.

35Therefore keep watch because you do not know when the owner of the house will come back—whether in the evening, or at midnight, or when the rooster crows, or at dawn. 36If he comes suddenly, do not let him find you sleeping. 37What I say to you, I say to everyone: ‘Watch!’ ”

There are those who tell us a million reasons why we actually dont have to do what the Bible clearly tells us to do.  We dont have to watch because.....abcdefg.  Well, that is not how this brother reads it and this brother speaks with the Lord every day.  The same must happen with you, we live in a time of lies and deception.  How do you read the Word of God?  That is, what is your interpretation of what you read?  If you have the Spirit of the Lord in you, you can figure it out for yourself.

To wrap this up, there is no evidence that the tribulation has started but there is a mountain of evidence that it could be right around the corner.  We must use this time to fast and pray.  It is time to look up for the same Lord God who saved Noah from the flood and Lot from Sodom.  He also saved Israel from Egypt and Babylon.  There are those on this earth who will be kept from all that is about to happen, that is a fact.  We are to pray for this escape, that too is a fact.  Those who choose to willfully ignore this command do so at their own peril.

Let us do the things we already know we should be doing.  There is no new revelation here.  He told us what was going to happen and its happening, imagine that.  Now let us do our part.  We are to be salt and light to this dead and dying world.  Each one of us was put here for a reason in this season of time.  It is time to do our job.  Glory to God
