PROPHETIC WARNING: Rapture & Tribulation // Suffering
We are called to study the WORD, and to seek out the mysteries of prophecy....especially as we see the SEASON of HIS return approaching.
There are a lot of FALSE PROPHECIES and TEACHINGS that have invaded the church, to help lull her to sleep, so that she is not ready for HIS COMING. The churches are not preparing the BRIDE, nor to they have the 'oil of readiness' in their lamps, so they can SEE during the time of DARKNESS that is upon us. (Matthew 25:1-13)
The WARNING that I received is that we need to be prepared for what is coming.....BOTH spiritually and physically. We must pout on the full armor, and become the WARRIORS OF GOD, in order to fight the wicked principalities that are trying to take over the world. This can only be done in the SPIRIT, and not the flesh.
During this time, there will be many trials, tribulations, and sufferings, that we may have to go through, while waiting for the LORD JESUS to come. The LORD addresses this in the message below. HE corrects those who say that we are not going to go through hard times. This is a lie from the enemy, that will destroy the faith of many people.,....for once they see the persecutions come, as well as the tribulations, they will abandon JESUS, because it did not fit in with the false teachings, and deceptions that they were taught.
People ask me if I am Pre-trib, Mid-trib, or Post-trib. I do not believe in those doctrines, because they are man-made teachings that have come to bring division, and disunity among the BODY of CHRIST.
When the The Rapture & Tribulation happens, it will not be what we've been taught! We will be surprised, when it all plays out.....very much like what happened with the first coming of JESUS! The Jewish people COMPLETELY 'missed the mark' at their interpretation of the coming of their Messiah. They thought that when the Messiah came, he would come and set them free from the Romans and declare himself as King. Instead, JESUS came as a LAMB, going to the slaughter, as an atonement for our sins. However, HIS second coming will be with the AUTHORITY and RIGHTEOUSNESS or a KING and WARRIOR!
I have hesitated in addressing specific details of prophecy.....especially concerning the TRIBULATION and RAPTURE. However, after receiving this message, I thought I would share a few things. We all must remember that we 'see through a mirror dimly' (1 Corinthians 13:12).....meaning that prophecy isn't completely understood until its entire fulfillment has taken place. I believe that the LORD has laid out the general basics in the WORD....but the full. detailed understanding will come at its fulfillment.
Here is a sample of what I found in the Scriptures: There are 2 KIND OF WRATHS that are coming in the LAST DAYS:
During the last 3 ½ years, satan will use the anti-christ to bring his wrath upon the world. This will bring 'GREAT TRIBULATION,' (Revelation 7:14) which we can see in the first 5 Seals of Revelation 6. JESUS is the one that opens these SEALS, that brings forth the destruction. Matthew 24:4-28 also speaks of this time period, along with Luke 2:10-281 and Mark 13:5-23.
After the GREAT TRIBULATION is when GOD's wrath is poured out on the earth, which includes the Bowls of the Book of Revelation.... as well as Matthew 24:29 and corresponding Scriptures.
There is a lot of confusion in the BODY OF CHRIST about the timing of the RAPTURE, and the Second Coming of JESUS. There are many Scriptures that support different times frames. Matthew 24 tells us when HE will come again to rule....which is after the TRIBULATION. Some say that this is HIS SECOND COMING.....others say it is the RAPTURE:
“IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE TRIBULATION of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven,and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. Matthew 24:29-31
The most important part, in my opinion, is that we are TOLD to WATCH FOR HIS COMING.....no matter what time period we believe:
"WATCH therefore, for you do not know when the master of the house is coming—in the evening, at midnight, at the crowing of the rooster, or in the morning—
“lest, coming suddenly, he find you sleeping.
“And what I say to you, I say to all: Watch!”" Mark 13:35-37
Another important fact is, though we don't know the date, time or hour of HIS arrival, we are to KNOW the SEASON, just like the "Parable of the Fig Tree" that JESUS taught:
“Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. So you also, when you SEE ALL THESE THINGS, know that it is near—at the doors!" Matthew 24:32-32
This verse talks about a CONVERGENCE of things that need to happen....then we will know that we are IN THE SEASON!! What THINGS NEED TO HAPPEN in a 'season?" First comes the:
Beginning of Sorrows (Matthew 24:4-8)
Persecutions (Matthew 24:9-10)
False Prophets (Matthew 24:11)
Lawlessness (Matthew 24:12)
Abomination of Desolation(Matthew 24:15-20)
Great Tribulation (Matthew 24:21-22)
In the message below, the LORD speaks about the SUFFERING that comes to Christianity, and Christians. Many think that the Christian life is just a 'walk in the park,' however, it is much more than that! It is a time for the LORD to REFINE us through the FIRES of testing and tribulation. Just as HE was tested, so shall HIS true followers be. HE allows us to go through the WILDERNESS, as well as tough times, to see if we will remain true and faithful to HIM....or if we will walk away.
“Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you. If they kept My word, they will keep yours also." John 15:20
I believe that HIS BRIDE is now getting READY for HIS coming by the 'DROSS' that is being removed, and going to be removed through the FIRES of AFFLLICATION. HE is preparing us for the WEDDING SUPPER OF THE LAMB!
"Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready.”
And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.
Then he said to me, “Write: ‘Blessed are those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb!’ ” And he said to me, “These are the true sayings of God.” Revelation 19:7-9
"This the time for the Beast to rise. There is no turning back....prophecy now unfolds!
The delays are not more.
The escalations continue.
The seals open.
The persecution comes......followed by MY COMING!
Many think they have it all figured out, but it will not be as you think! Your
man-made doctrine, will not hold water....they are leaking with falsehoods.
Do not think that you will escape all hardships, and disasters....for MY people will suffer, as I have suffered. They are to share in the fellowship of MY sufferings....for this will be their badge of honor!
MY people have already gone through a major birth-pang with the last plague that came. That was only the beginning of what satan has in store for the world. More are coming.
Those who think they will escape the hard times will lose their faith, because they believed a lie, and did'nt seek ME through the studying of MY WORD. It is a lie and deception, that many believe, that they will be rescued from any tribulation that is coming. If that were true, then why did warn MY disciples of what was coming? It was to warn and prepare them. I warn MY people ahead of time, so they will be aware of what comes, and not be in the dark.
However, MY people will NOT suffer the consequences of the wrath of the FATHER.
(1 Thessalonians 5:9)When that comes, they will be protected, and with ME. Just like in Days of WRATH during the times of of Noah, and Sodom & Gomorah....so shall it be again!
My people will go through many tribulations, but I will be with them to the end. The 'testing of their faith' will strengthen their walk with Me, and they will be like the 5 virgins that have oil in their lamps.
Things are NOT as they seem....both physically and spiritually. Only those who seek the truth will find it. All else is deception that surrounds the land like a dark cloud.
WAKE UP, O WARRIORS OF THE LIGHT!
Come out of your stupor, and be filled with the HOLY GHOST. It is only then that you will see clearly.
The commander and chief of the heavenly host,
