TO THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN LEFT BEHIND
Gone now are the days of wondering who was right and who was wrong. Gone is the time for choosing to believe what so many have tried to tell you. You have been told so many times in so many different ways about what was to come. But you chose to harden your heart to The Lord. And to the pleas of others that were trying to warn you of this time. They told you that Jesus Christ would come in the clouds to gather all His children to Him BEFORE the 7 years of hell on earth began (The tribulation). But for one reason or another you chose not to believe. God gave us the choice to believe and have faith and hope in Him.
1. Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.
2. This is what the ancients were commended for.
3.By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God's command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.
Without this hope we ALL would have been lost and empty. Empty souls running to and fro on this earth searching for love and a fullness of heart, mind, body and soul. That only Jesus Christ can give. We have watched so many that would not believe, searching this world to try and find the answers and the filling of these needs. But to no avail. You have chosen not to believe the only thing that would give you all things.
The answer was so simple. Believe in The Lord Jesus Christ!
Seek His love, His will and His ways and choose to live!
31. So do not worry, saying, `What shall we eat?' or `What shall we drink?' or `What shall we wear?'
32. For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them.
33. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
34.Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
You see the Lord tells us that if we look to him first for fulfillment and not to the things that the world can do for us, or give us. Then HE will give us all that we need in this world and in the life to come. I pray that as you read this you will finally open your heart and mind to Jesus and ask Him to come into your heart and save you. I pray that you will open your eyes now and see that thru Jesus is the only way to live. There is so much that He wants to give you, if you would just come to Him with an open heart.
19."I myself said, "`How gladly would I treat you like sons and give you a desirable land, the most beautiful inheritance of any nation.' I thought you would call me `Father' and not turn away from following me.
20. But like a woman unfaithful to her husband, so you have been unfaithful to me, O house of Israel," declares the LORD.
21. A cry is heard on the barren heights, the weeping and pleading of the people of Israel, because they have perverted their ways and have forgotten the LORD their God.
You see, there is still a chance for you to live an eternal life with Jesus. If you accept Him, one day you will be with all of us that have gone before you. If you choose to live thru Christ, then when He comes To destroy all the evil in the world you will be where there is no more pain and no more hunger or sorrow ...
16.Never again will they hunger; never again will they thirst. The sun will not beat upon them, nor any scorching heat.
17. For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd; he will lead them to springs of living water. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes."
But if you choose not to believe, and live even if you make it thru this hell on earth for a short time. You will surely live eternally in Hell. Burning with the sins of your life. A place where the worms never die and the torment are eternal. PLEASE choose life and choose a life of wonderful peace and love with Jesus. PLEASE make that choice NOW before it is too late. Do not be blind and do not stop up your ears to Gods call. He loves you and we love you. You see you chose not to believe while that door was still open for escape. I know that the times ahead will be VERY hard for everyone. But Please..... If you would just hold on to The Lord He will guide you thru ..
If you choose to believe, then PLEASE on bended knee bow down before our Lord and ask Him to forgive you. Ask Him to help you. Please pray this Pray and then just talk to Him. HE IS YOUR FATHER. And He will help you. He knows your heart and your needs. And He will make a way for you to bear all things.
1 Corinthians 10:13
13.There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
Dear Heavenly Father,
I come to you Lord. Lord I need you. Lord I cannot do this on my own. I know what your word says about what is to come upon the earth. Lord Jesus Please come into my heart and help me to get thru this time. Lord I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that He is the promised Messiah. Lord and that He died on the cross for me, and was raised again after the third day. And now He is sitting at the right hand of the Father, and I believe He will come to put an end to all evil things and renew us thru Him. Thank you Lord for being there for me in my time of need. Help me Lord to know and to understand your plans for my life and of the things to come. Lord come into my heart right now and show me your ways.
Thank you Lord and I ask all this in Jesus Mighty Name
I pray that you have made this choice and that some day we will meet together to live eternally with Jesus in the perfect world that He will have for us. :-) God Bless you I want you to think about this and to remember that NO MATTER what happens to you in the flesh. If you TRULY are a child of God. You will live eternally.. For Gods world is not of flesh and blood but of the spirit, that will live eternally in either heaven or hell. The body is just a temporary thing but the spirit will live forever. Now I will try to the best of my abilities to explain what you will have to go thru in the next 7 years. I pray that The Lord will guide you and give you the strength that you will need to endure ...
Just remember that no matter what ANYONE tells you... THE ONLY WAY to live eternally is thru JESUS CHRIST and not by any other means.... NO god or gods nor people will save you, only JESUS.
The Rapture of the Church (Where did everyone go?)
In many different Scriptures, Jesus has promised His Church that He will come back to take her home to be with Him before the time known as the Great Tribulation of the last days...
1 Thessalonians 4: 16-17
16.For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.
17.After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.
During the last two hundred years, this belief in the eminent return of Christ for His Church has encouraged Christians to go out and teach all nations.. Bringing them to the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. There were so many arguments about the timing of the Rapture and if this was really to take place. I have heard so many far out arguments that my heart was full of hurt and anguish that those that call themselves Christians could not even believe the one single thing that was the Blessed hope given us from God as a way to escape all that was coming on the earth and at the same time as a reward for following Him...
However, along with the promises of His return to rapture all believers. Jesus warned that the Rapture would be followed by the most terrible time of persecution Known in the history of man....
The Great Tribulation.
The Tribulation is a special time of Gods judgment on the earth. Jesus Himself as well as the prophets spoke of this time in great detail. This time of 7 years will begin at the signing of a 7-year covenant or peace treaty with Israel. The one who brings about this peace will be the antichrist or the one that will become the new world leader ... he will be come from the remains of the ancient Roman culture and people. He will cause the worst period of lawlessness and destruction the world has ever seen. (There are no more Christians here to hold him back .. The Lord has given him full rein)
2 Thessalonians 2:6-10[I believe this is because we as Christians are indwelled with the Holy Spirit, and because He dwells within us Satan cannot stand until we are gone or taken out of the way]
6. And now you know what is holding him back, so that he may be revealed at the proper time.
7.For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way.
8.And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming.
9. The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders,
10. and in every sort of evil that deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved.
Although the first part of the tribulation will be formed on a false peace and security.. Daniel tells about this world leader and what his career will bring about.
Daniel 7:25[Three and one half years]
25.He will speak against the Most High and oppress his saints and try to change the set times and the laws. The saints will be handed over to him for a time, times and half a time.
Daniel 8: 23-25
23."In the latter part of their reign, when rebels have become completely wicked, a stern-faced king, a master of intrigue, will arise.
24. He will become very strong, but not by his own power. He will cause astounding devastation and will succeed in whatever he does. He will destroy the mighty men and the holy people.
25. He will cause deceit to prosper, and he will consider himself superior. When they feel secure, he will destroy many and take his stand against the Prince of princes. Yet he will be destroyed, but not by human power.
This teaches us that the antichrist will alter times and laws to suit his own purposes. He will be a master liar, and will deceive the whole world into following him. In the mean time he is playing on the worlds desire for peace and safety.
1 Thessalonians 5:1-5
1. Now, brothers, about times and dates we do not need to write to you,
2. for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night.
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.
4. But you, brothers, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief.
He will have them under his control and destroy them. Paul tells us several things about this antichrist. He apposes and exalts himself above every so called god. The antichrist will seek to destroy all truth about God and even the gods of other religions. He will place his throne in the holy of holies of the third Jewish temple which must be built upon its ancient site. When this is done it will fulfill what Jesus and Daniel told about the antichrist setting up the "abomination that causes desolation" This officially begins the last three and one half years of the tribulation period.
Daniel 9:27[the beginning of the second three and one half years] he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And on a wing [of the temple] he will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is poured out on him. "
27.He will confirm a covenant with many for one `seven.' In the middle of the `seven'
He will proclaim and show himself to be God. This IS the ultimate blasphemy. He will set himself above all else and will deceive many into accepting him as the supreme dictator. But will also demand worship of all peoples and nations.
3. One of the heads of the beast seemed to have had a fatal wound, but the fatal wound had been healed. The whole world was astonished and followed the beast.
4. Men worshiped the dragon because he had given authority to the beast, and they also worshiped the beast and asked, "Who is like the beast? Who can make war against him?"
5. The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise his authority for forty-two months.
6. He opened his mouth to blaspheme God, and to slander his name and his dwelling place and those who live in heaven.
7. He was given power to make war against the saints and to conquer them. And he was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation.
8. All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast--all whose names have not been written in the book of life belonging to the Lamb that was slain from the creation of the world.
Israel will rebel at this and against the blasphemy. The antichrist will then launch a time of terror against all those who appose him and his demand for worship. There will come a time when you will be required to renounce your faith in God (Jesus Christ) and receive a mark on your right hand or forehead, and without this you will not be able to buy or sell), (BUT be warned that if you receive this mark there is NO going back. You have just signed your life over to satan.. Permanently !
13. And he performed great and miraculous signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to earth in full view of men. Because of the signs he was given power to do on behalf of the first beast,
14. He deceived the inhabitants of the earth. He ordered them to set up an image in honor of the beast who was wounded by the sword and yet lived.
15. He was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that it could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed.
16. He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead,
17. so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name. This calls for wisdom.
18. If anyone has insight, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is man's number. His number is 666.
When the 7-year treaty is signed for the protection of Israel, Daniel's prophecy begins:
27.He will confirm a covenant with many for one `seven.' In the middle of the `seven' he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And on a wing [of the temple] he will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is poured out on him. "
Remember that the Bible does not go by our calendar. it uses lunar years of 360 days a year. There will be exactly 7 times 360 or 2,520 days, until the Second Coming of Jesus the Messiah.At the beginning of this time there will also come the most important manifestation of God's Grace. 144,000 Jews thru out the world will come to faith in the true Messiah Jesus Christ.
1.After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the earth to prevent any wind from blowing on the land or on the sea or on any tree.
2.Then I saw another angel coming up from the east, having the seal of the living God. He called out in a loud voice to the four angels who had been given power to harm the land and the sea:
4. Then I heard the number of those who were sealed: 144,000 from all the tribes of Israel.
This will happen before any harm comes on the earth sea or vegetation. So it must come about on or near the beginning of the tribulation period. These 144,000 Jews will be the world's GREAT evangelist, and will bring MANY to Christ during their time.
Then come the Two Witnesses
3.And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy for 1,260 days, clothed in sackcloth."
4. These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands that stand before the Lord of the earth.
5. If anyone tries to harm them, fire comes from their mouths and devours their enemies. This is how anyone who wants to harm them must die.
6. These men have power to shut up the sky so that it will not rain during the time they are prophesying; and they have power to turn the waters into blood and to strike the earth with every kind of plague as often as they want.
7.Now when they have finished their testimony, the beast that comes up from the Abyss will attack them, and overpower and kill them.
8.Their bodies will lie in the street of the great city, which is figuratively called Sodom and Egypt, where also their Lord was crucified
9.For three and a half days men from every people, tribe, language and nation will gaze on their bodies and refuse them burial.
10. The inhabitants of the earth will gloat over them and will celebrate by sending each other gifts, because these two prophets had tormented those who live on the earth.
11. But after the three and a half days a breath of life from God entered them, and they stood on their feet, and terror struck those who saw them
12.Then they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, "Come up here." And they went up to heaven in a cloud, while their enemies looked on.
13.At that very hour there was a severe earthquake and a tenth of the city collapsed. Seven thousand people were killed in the earthquake, and the survivors were terrified and gave glory to the God of heaven.
14.The second woe has passed; the third woe is coming soon.
15. The seventh angel sounded his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven, which said: "The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he will reign for ever and ever."
Some believe that these two will be Moses and Elijah. I will add no more to this because I believe that the Scripture here is self-explanatory. I will try to sum up what all will be happening during the rest of this 7 year period. There is too much to write here but seek out all that you can and learn about Our Lord and His ways ....NOW !!! Books about this and (Even the Bible will become a thing that is banned.
The first series of Judgment Begins
The Seven Seals
First Seal : This first seal releases the antichrist of Rome to begin his mission of world conquest. Revelation 6: 1-2
Second Seal : War begins: First the Muslim armies led by Russia launch and all-out attack on Israel (Daniel 11: 40) there will never be a lasting peace. Second Russia and its Muslim allies launch and all-out invasion of the middle east by land sea and air Ezekiel 38:17; Daniel 11:40-41) this time will involve many such maneuvers and will take some time. Revelation 6: 3-4
Third Seal : This seal brings world wide economic collapse. Oil import will be halted and food will become scare and very expensive. Revelation 6:5-6
Fourth Seal : Death to one fourth of the population. In the space of a few months over one and a half billion people will perish through war,famine,epedimics,and breakdown of society. Revelation 6:7-8
Fifth Seal : The opening of this seal brings about horrible persecution of the Believers of Jesus Christ (all Christians) The Roman antichrist and the Israeli false prophet begin a wholesale slaughter of believers. They have a very good way to expose believers they will use economics to achieve total control of the monetary system. By every person will receive a number or a mark that has or resembles the number 666no one is able to buy or sell unless they have this mark. But to receive this mark you must Renounce God and swear allegiance to the Roman antichrist. Revelation 13:13-18
Sixth Seal : Russian leaders in a desperate situation. Decide to launch a first nuclear strike. The world is horrified but the worst is yet to come. Ezekiel 39:6
Seventh Seal : As this seal is opened there is a lapse in time as God gives mankind a chance to repent. The Seventh seal actually opens the seven trumpet judgments that are far more severe than the first six Revelation 8:1-2
First Trumpet : The first Trumpet brings a burning of one third of the earth surface, one third of the trees, and all the grains and grasses on the earth Revelation8:7
Second Trumpet : Convoys of war ships and merchant ships are all destroyed. For a Great burning mountain is cast into the sea. A third of all ships and life in the sea is destroyed Revelation8:9
Third Trumpet : This trumpet brings a poisoning of one third of all the worlds fresh water, (this also could be cause by a nuclear exchange resulting in fallout, which would poison all the waters with radiation. In our Bible this is referred to as wormwood. In the Ukrainian language
Bible it is rendered "Chernobyl". Revelation 8: 10
Fourth Trumpet : Light from the sun moon and stars is cut by one third (this could be from all the fall out blocking the atmosphere.) Revelation 8:12
Fifth Trumpet : I do not know the cause of this nor does anyone I believe, but this releases some horrible demons that are given power to torment men for five months, they will seek death but will not be able to find it. Revelation 9:1-12
Sixth Trumpet : 200 million man army marches toward the Middle East. They whip out one third of the earths population. They do this with fire and brimstone. Which again indicates that this is by a massive use of nuclear weapons Revelation 9:15-18
Revelation 9: 20-21.
20.The rest of mankind that were not killed by these plagues still did not repent of the work of their hands; they did not stop worshiping demons, and idols of gold, silver, bronze, stone and wood--idols that cannot see or hear or walk. 21.Nor did they repent of their murders, their magic arts, their sexual immorality or their thefts
And as bad as all this seems, the worst is yet to come. I pray that you have accepted The Lord and you have Him there to protect you for He is the only way ..God Be with you all.
The seventh Trumpet sounds and again there is a pause ... Before the Bowels of Wrath are poured out.
1.I saw in heaven another great and marvelous sign: seven angels with the seven last plagues- last, because with them God's wrath is completed.
2.And I saw what looked like a sea of glass mixed with fire and, standing beside the sea, those who had been victorious over the beast and his image and over the number of his name. They held harps given them by God
3. and sang the song of Moses the servant of God and the song of the Lamb: "Great and marvelous are your deeds, Lord God Almighty. Just and true are your ways, King of the ages.
4.Who will not fear you, O Lord, and bring glory to your name? For you alone are holy. All nations will come and worship before you, for your righteous acts have been revealed."
5. After this I looked and in heaven the temple, that is, the tabernacle of the Testimony, was opened.
6.Out of the temple came the seven angels with the seven plagues. They were dressed in clean, shining linen and wore golden sashes around their chests.
7.Then one of the four living creatures gave to the seven angels seven golden bowls filled with the wrath of God, who lives for ever and ever.
First Bowel :The first Bowel is for the unbelievers that have received the mark (666) and pledged their life to the antichrist. This brings Horrible ugly sores upon all those who have not repented. Revelation 16:2
Second Bowel : The sea turns to blood and every living thing in the ocean dies. Revelation 16:3
Third Bowel : Turns all fresh water on the earth to blood. Revelation 16:4
Fourth Bowel : The suns heat intensifies and is given the power to scorch men.
8. The fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and the sun was given power to scorch people with fire.
9.They were seared by the intense heat and they cursed the name of God, who had control over these plagues, but they refused to repent and glorify him.
The fifth Bowel Revelation16:10-11)
10.The fifth angel poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast, and his kingdom was plunged into darkness. Men gnawed their tongues in agony
11. and cursed the God of Heaven because of their pains and their sores, but they refused to repent of what they had done.
Sixth Bowel : All gather for The Final Battle of Armageddon. Revelation 16: 12-16
Seventh Bowel : Last Bowel judgment Revelation 16: 17-21
17.The seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and out of the temple came a loud voice from the throne, saying, "It is done!"
18.Then there came flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder and a severe earthquake.
No earthquake like it has ever occurred since man has been on earth, so tremendous was the quake.
19.The great city split into three parts, and the cities of the nations collapsed. God remembered Babylon the Great and gave her the cup filled with the wine of the fury of his wrath.
20. Every island fled away and the mountains could not be found.
21.From the sky huge hailstones of about a hundred pounds each fell upon men. And they cursed God on account of the plague of hail, because the plague was so terrible.
This is the return of our Lord to put an end to all things.
30."At that time the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and all the nations of the earth will mourn. They will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky, with power and great glory.
7.Look, he is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see him, even those who pierced him; and All the peoples of the earth will mourn because of him. So shall it be! Amen.
19.Then I saw the beast and the kings of the earth and their armies gathered together to make war against the rider on the horse and his army.
20.But the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who had performed the miraculous signs on his behalf. With these signs he had deluded those who had received the mark of the beast and worshiped his image. The two of them were thrown alive into the fiery lake of burning sulfur.
21.The rest of them were killed with the sword that came out of the mouth of the rider on the horse, and all the birds gorged themselves on their flesh.
After the Lord Puts all evil under his feet and all are wiped out that do not believe. Then Our Lord will Bring His kingdom down onto earth and there He will remain for 1000 years of peace on earth. Jesus Will Rein as KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS. And we who were taken home in the rapture will return with Him. After the thousands years of peace on earth satan will be released again for a short time .. There will be many that he will lead astray again. But at that time our Lord will throw satan and all his followers into the lake of fire and there they will remain forever and ever for all eternity ...And Heaven will then be on earth. And all Believers will live eternally with God as their King.
