CHRISTIANS AND THE GREAT TRIBULATION

 Okay This may be a long topic, needful to the experienced members of the Body of Christ: Remember we must not add to nor take away any of the Words of the Prophecy of the Book of Revelation or the plagues will be added to us. Only Believe. 


Yes Christians Will be still here through at least half+ of the tribulation period.  We will see who the anti-Christ is and the abomination that makes desolate before we are taken/raptured out of Great Tribulation as the Bible says. I called on the Lord in 1981 fasting and praying because I could hear a different message from Churches about this, than what I could see in God's Word plainly and the Lord ministered His Word to me. 

First begin with Matthew 24:15-31 where Jesus is answering His disciples on when shall the end come, notice the Lord says "when YE shall see the Abomination of Desolation... If Jesus said "ye shall see" then you shall see it, then not knowing the day or the hour Jesus spoke as if it could begin anyday, Jesus could have said when "THEY" shall see...but He said "when YOU shall see" talking to His disciples. Folks...we haven't seen that yet! Note verse 21 of the same chapter, The Lord says "then shall be Great Tribulation  more than the world has ever seen,"  but Praise God the days of Tribulation will be shorter for us which are saved.

Notice in verse 29 it says "immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun and the moon shall be darkened, stars fall from heaven...(that too hasn't happened yet, so Jesus will not change His Word by coming before it is fulfilled)  verse 30 & 31 says "Then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in the Clouds. He shall send angels who with a great sound of a Trumpet gather together His Elect from the 4 winds. 

The Lord says repeatedly "Be Not Deceived" for false prophets shall say Jesus has come, or He is here or over there, but no! Jesus assured us in His Word that His Word shall not fail, and it shall all come to pass whatever He said, as is written. 
Many say that since the Satellites have The Word preached all over the world that it is the sign of the end, but the Bible says that in the end 144,000  Virgin-Jewish men will preach the Gospel all over the world, they are of the 12 tribes of Israel, (but too many say it is also the gentiles and make anything "symbolic" that they feel like) 

The Bible Plainly states THESE ARE JEWS! " redeemed of the Earth," never defiled with women, "the first ripe fruits", clean, and ready, no guile in their mouth, and they are blameless. Many misread that since John on the Isle of Patmos says "After this I beheld  a great multitude of all kinds of people" and say that it is actually the 144,000 symbolically.  No no! Paul saw 2 groups of people here, 144k Jews and a Great Multitude which no man could number of all races. (in Revelation 3:3 The Lord is speaking to the Church of Philadelphia, not the church-world)

Revelation 7:4-9     

There is a warning to any who say they are Jews when they are not. Revelation 3:9

Remember  there shall be 7 Trumpets sounded by Angels in heaven and The Church is "taken out of Great Tribulation" on the sound of the 7th Trump. They/we shall be in tears, and have been exposed to intense heat. The earth is already heating up in a climate crisis. Glaciers are melting, Weather is mixed up due to it & etc.

Matthew 24:31 |
And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

1 Corinthians 15:52
In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

1 Thessalonians 4:16 
For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

Revelation 10:7 
But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.

1 Corinthians 15:51 |Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed.

The Church clearly leaves upon the sound of the 7th Trumpet blown in heaven, not before, nor on the 1st Trumpet.  Some people will explain away everything this says for fear or tradition, or to actually dare God would have us still be here through the devastating events each Trumpet precedes in Revelation ch's 8-10. Many say "God would never,.." but we are some of the most unGodly Christians of all the generations on the earth, many of our forefathers truly loved, served and obeyed God, and acted more like real Christians. 

Paul warns us in 2nd Thessalonians chapter 2 that there will be deceptions about the coming of Christ and shall deceive many, but that day of the coming of the Lord shall 1. not precede a falling away from the faith, and 2. the anti-Christ being revealed.  Notice in verse 6 Paul says "now you know what witholdeth our gathering together unto the Lord.",  Verse 1 is telling us what shall happen first BEFORE we are gathered together to meet the Lord. 

It amazes me how, many Christians believe Christians can be persecuted, even beheaded but do not believe God will allow us to be in the Great Tribulation; They forget Moses didn't enter the promised Land, John the Baptist lost his head, Stephen was martyred and the the Apostles were crucified, and mostly, Jesus was killed before He resurrected, but they think God would never allow us suffering in the Tribulation. Who do we think we are?  We are not better than them. Let us never forget Roman 8:38-39, Nothing shall separate us from the Love of God...

Notice in verse 7 the unrevealed culprit of iniquity allows iniquity to abound until he is destroyed, and verse 8 tells us "how" he will be destroyed..by "the brightness of Christ's coming".  Many Christians believe "the Church is letting iniquity work" and we are in the way of ourselves and will be taken out of the way of our own gathering unto the Lord, because they say  the Church is the one taken out of the way, no, no, (the church as one body is not referred to in the bible as a "he" but The Bride, and in plural as "sons")  the whole topic is "what is in the way of our gathering unto the Lord?" satan is! not us.

The "him that now lets is satan/antichrist, until he is taken out of our way".  However let's just live Holy and not dispute nor quarrel about this, only believe.  America at the rate we're going will never see the precious descending of Christ's feet in the clouds, we may be utterly destroyed and judged before the rest of the world. The nation that forgets her God shall utterly perish.

We don't know the day nor hour, but we can know the season by the signs we have been warned about. We must remember to keep the faith, don't take the mark, don't think Jesus forgot us, and don't buy the lie that the Bible was wrong or we would'nt be in Great Tribulation. I say it all the time "i'm not goin down without a fight, broken-bloody-fist-in-the-air still holding to the blood-stained banner to my last breath!"

The wrath of God begins after the Church is gone, but the Tribulation is before the wrath. It can be dangerous to think we wont't be here, cause misinformed, fearful Christians could panic, shake their fist toward heaven and even take the mark of the beast and be eternally lost, and that's satan's plan.  American churches must repent or we can miss seeing this Glorious Event.


2nd Thessalonians chapter 2 

Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,

2That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

3Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

4Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

5Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?

6And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.

7For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.

8And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

9Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

10And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

11And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

12That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

13But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:

14Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

15Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.

16Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace,

17Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work.

WHEN CHRISTIANS SUFFER

When the Righteous Suffer...

Too often I've heard many say (and even tell me) that "God would never ____ _____ … Many fill-in the blanks with outrageous unscriptural things. Guess what? In most cases, He already has ____ ____and often many times throughout scripture, and in our lives. The one thing that I hear most is that "God would never allow us to go through"..."God will not allow us to suffer and etc",  I hope they mean "not above which we are able..." 1st Corinthians 10:13 .  There are 5 kinds of suffering: 1From People, 2From Being in the world/chaos, 3 our own ignorance, 4From disobeying God, and 5Illness/disease. One we can't help, another we may bring upon ourselves due to responding inappropriately to a person or situation, and another to be trained, made patient, to learn to encourage others, to become experienced, honed, skillful, tried in the Fire and be formed and transformed by God to represent Christ.

 Paul experienced hardship, the Apostles were crucified, the martyr Stephen was stoned to death during his trial sermon, but today’s generation of Christians believe since this is the age of Grace that we in America cannot be persecuted, killed, suffer loss, or hardship as a people, like we are bullet-proof, yet we live more carelessly than any of the Christians that lived before us. It is a great misconception to think we are in better position than the early Church, and persecuted Christians in other countries; and such teaching has many Christians lulled to sleep in the comfort of their wealth, relationships, and gain, only to go back on God with the first major setback, oh and don’t tell them we as Christians who are alive will be here during the Great Tribulation, even though it is written we leave at the Last Trump, not the first one when the Trib starts. (Revelation chapters 8-10) (2nd Thessalonians chapter 2) [and by the way....The Church is not a "he".]

We're quick to Thank and Praise God and say He's good, when we escape some trouble, get the job, home or car, the husband or wife, spare some close call, or are healed, and it's all well and good, but to say God is Good when car is totaled while the auto insurance check bounced due to $1 shortage, the husband cheats, the wife leaves to find herself, the son/daughter started using drugs, rebels, and etc. Do we just weep unto God in sorrow, and beg for a miracle with hard crying or do we still say God is Good? Does God have to make everything go the way we want and expect before we consistently acknowledge His perpetual Lordship in all things, at all times? Truly in a multitude of trials some heaviness is inevitable, for it is written in 1st Peter 1:6 ..."ye are in heaviness due to manifold temptations", (it should'nt last but a few days)  however in 1st Peter 4:12 it tells us the fiery trial is to try us.

 There must be some trial and we must at some point be tested to prove where our heart is, how true we are, how Faithful to God. This kind of temptation is good for us, and many are the afflictions of the righteous but God shall deliver the righteous out of them all as He did for Paul on his journeys many times. Acts 14:22 states "we must through much tribulation enter into the Kingdom of God. We must realize that when others face impossible situations that just because it didn’t happen to us doesn’t mean"God didn’t see fit for it to be me", for God doesn’t see fit for ANYBODY to suffer, or perish, some things are just the way of this sinful world, and trials are often used as a tool to educate and help people to move forward and stop the error that caused the trial, if we are not careful to comfort the hurting, we forget we are not excluded from being next.

We remember John the Baptist stated in Matthew 3:11 that the Lord shall "baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire". 1st Corinthians 3:15 says "the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is" and 1st Peter 1:7 states the trial of your faith shall be tried with fire. Truly we shall come out as pure Gold as we are perfected by our faithful patience, enduring ALL things.

May we keep in mind that serving the Lord is more than Blessings, Miracles, Answered Prayers, Bliss, Healings, Gifts and Presents, Songs, Shouting, Sermons and Dance, but also Strength in trials brought on just by being in the world, by evil people, by attacks, tests, and how we Trust God through them and Triumph over our troubles, Rejoicing, Praying, Waiting, Walking in Faith and Courage, Believing and Learning to Encourage others who after us may experience the same trouble.
