Shabbat Shalom to all!
Who owns your truth?
Jeremiah 2:11-13 “Has a nation changed its gods, which are not gods? But My people have changed their glory, for what does not profit. Be astonished O heavens at this, and be horribly afraid. Become very desolate says the Lord. For My people have committed two evils: They have forsaken Me, the fountain of living waters and hewn for themselves broken cisterns that can hold no water.”
Many people are at a crossroad right now. Which way they go will bring them great victory or deep darkness!
Jeremiah 13:15-16 “Hear and give ear; do not be proud, for the Lord has spoken. Give glory to the Lord your God, before He causes darkness, and before your feet stumble on the dark mountains, and while you are looking for the light, He turns it into the shadow of death and makes it dense darkness.”
Job 21:14 “They say to God, ‘depart from us, for we do not desire the knowledge of Your ways.’”
We have a growing divide right now between the godless liberal left and those that stand for a nation under God. The divide is actually correct, because “two can’t walk together unless they be agreed.”
O f course political parties don’t agree that’s normal, but all should agree on one ultimate authority and provider of truth – God and His word. The basic principles of the virtues of God should be held in esteem above the law of the land or politicians in all nations.
The removal of the word of God from society places it in godless jeopardy with Satan and his word now the authority. Pelosi is a good example of that. So many things get removed from society when the Bible is removed including the all important four swords revealed in the Bible:
●The sword of murder, ●the sword of Capital punishment, ●the sword of war, ●the sword of the Spirit.
If you remove the Bible’s definition of murder (homicide) it sends a message of tolerance with crime and destroys deterrence. If you remove the sword of capital punishment, you meet out injustice to the victim. If you remove the sword of war, you create a nation of push-over pacifists. If you remove the sword of the Spirit, you remove the authority of the believer and make him defenceless.
This is the way to weaken a nation right at its foundation. It is the way of liberals!
You need to be aware of this and the intensifying evil spirits at work otherwise, you are in big danger.
The great reset will produce the great eternal regret at the end of the day.
You can attack the truth, but remember, God owns the truth. You are attacking Him. The Bible may bleed for a few seconds, but it will be you who will eventually and eternally!
God owns the truth, and if the truth is in you are owned by Him and are unshakable, safe and secure. The truth is unbreakable and unchangeable. It will break those who try to break it, it always does.
The political mayhem is one side of the present day troubles. The mutating virus is the other. Both are changing the very face of the world right before us.
On top of the socio-political upheavals on the go, the virus is mutating and spreading faster than before. These things are all causing great stress in the world.
►Will things return to normal? Absolutely not! A vaccine is not a substitute for repentance. You can’t take a pill or get a vaccination to remove the results of the disease of sin! (I am in no way coming against those who take the vaccine. I’m talking generally)
Will God accept a vaccination instead of repentance?
Things can only return to normal if we are far from the whole end-time train rolling in. We are not far, but very close to the whole picture unfolding.
Why is God calling loudly for repentance now through so many of His voices? It is because time is running out fast and He wants people as holy as possible, ready for heaven at the rapture. He is also preparing Israel for a sudden return to holiness, so that they can be effective witnesses and evangelists in the tribulation period.
It’s also because the world’s wickedness has gone into overdrive and is speeding up. It’s because of where we are on the grand prophetic calendar.
(By the way, I have some incredible revelation of some familiar verses on the rapture and Israel, which I will share soon. It will destroy some deeply held, but incorrect views.)
Don’t you think it’s interesting that the church has failed in her commission to the Jew, while the Jew in the tribulation will be very successful in taking the gospel to the Gentile!
The big reason for the rapture is not the great escape, although that is quite true. It is to bring in the last Gentile and then see the veil removed as the gospel goes to the Jew.
Matthew 23:37-38 “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often have I want to gather your children together like a hen gathers her chicks under her wings. But you were not willing! See your house is left to you desolate.”
When Bible prophecy is on the march, what a terrible thing to be left behind and right out of it, with no idea of its existence and relevance!
►1 Thessalonians 5:20 “Do not despise prophesies.”
The word “despise” is Strong’s G1848 ‘Exoutheneo.’ Meanings: Despise, set at nought, make contemptible, not to be esteemed.
This verse above means you had better wake up fast to Bible prophecy, even if your parrot behind the pulpit won’t touch prophecy.
Most importantly, it also means that presumptuous, always-wrong prophecy teachers and watchmen are the very ones causing prophecy to be “set at nought” and “made contemptible, not to be esteemed”
False watchmen are prophecy killers and faith killers!
Proverbs 12:19 “The truthful lip shall be established forever, but a lying tongue is but for a moment.”
For your edification:
You need to be spiritually strong in these days. You must be clearly defined in who you are spiritually and in all areas of your life.
We have as part of the church the happy clappies and hands up church (me included) and the no-happy, no-clappies, hands down, boring, dead, denominational non-spirit filled crowd, with no insight except that of the world.
Even if you are not in a local church you need to be demonstrative in your walk with our Lord. Once you are Spirit filed, even in your home alone, raise your hands in prayer and clap your hands, and if your dog bites you, serves you right for hiding your spirituality.
Edition 508: February 11th 2020.
Amazing Rapture facts
These are words of life!
It’s amazing how new rapture facts just appear in the air all the time. This is because we are getting closer all the time and the true light is getting brighter!
In this edition I want to present you with a number of facts about the rapture all put together, which gives a clearer understanding. I have not shared some of this before.
I will look at some amazing facts and revelation contained in the Feasts of the Lord, particularly Rosh Hashanah (Feast of Trumpets.)
This relates to the time of the rapture of the church. So if you are bound in hand-me-down, “no one knows the day or the time,” erroneous church tradition, you better click out of here now, or be prepared to have you cart of apples overturned.
Let me give you some food for thought: God warned Jericho before the coming destruction. He also warned Sodom and Gomorrah, and the people of Noah’s day, and many others.
Would it be that God also warns of the soon coming world-wide destruction called the tribulation period? Of course it is so. Then a logical presumption is that we will know by these warnings when the pre-tribulation rapture will take place.
Many people just can’t and won’t believe their traditional view has been faulty.
Rosh Hashanah (Feast of Trumpets)
This is one of the seven feasts of the Lord, which plot the course of world history, Israel and the church, and into the Millennium in their prophetic parallels. The first five have been fulfilled. The remaining three will be fulfilled in the same manner, which is literal.
Rosh Hashanah is the next in line to be fulfilled. (The Feast of Pentecost, the start of the church age was the last one.)
The previous five fulfilled feasts have no trumpet blast associated with them. Rosh Hashanah (Trumpets) has 100 trumpet blasts associated with it and the following two feasts also have trumpet blasts. This means that Rosh Hashanah signals something new on the go.
It is so. It signals the end of the primary dealings of God with the church and a switch-over back to dealings with Israel, completing the Old Covenant (Daniel’s seventieth week).
Rosh Hashanah is unique in that it begins on an unknown day, either one of two, when the new moon is sighted. The feast lasts two days. So, although no one knows the exact day and hour, it’s within a very short period of time – two days.
This is gaining acceptance amongst solid Bible believers.
There are many titles for Rosh Hashanah, all with significant meanings. Here are some:
Rosh Hashanah is called or associated with: ●The hidden day. ●The day of judgement (tribulation period). ●The day of the awakening trumpet blast. ●The last trumpet blast ●The day of remembrance . ●The opening of the gates of heaven. ●The day of the raising of the dead ●The Coronation of the Messiah.
■The hidden day:
The name, “hidden day”, (Yom Hakeseh) is most interesting. This is a parallel with the term “no one knows the day of hour.” The start of Rosh Hashanah and its events are secretly hidden because of its unknown starting point.
Psalm 27:5 “In the time of trouble, He shall hide me in His pavilion; in the secret place of His tabernacle, He shall hide me. He shall set me high upon a rock.”
Hebrew scholars relate the verse above to the “time of Jacob’s trouble” or the tribulation period. But it is also closely affiliated with the hidden day of Rosh Hashanah. Many believe (me too) that Rosh Hashanah will be the kick off of the tribulation.
■The opening of the gates of heaven:
Isaiah 26:2 Open the gates that the righteous nation that keeps the truth may enter in.” (Psalm 118:19-20)
Hebrew tradition maintains that these gates will open on Rosh Hashanah. They will open on Yom Hakeseh, the hidden day that no one knows the exact day or hour of.
This relates to the saved believers at the rapture entering the gates of heaven, but also to the gates of heaven being opened for Israel in the broader sense of their salvation during the tribulation.
■The trumpet of awakening speaks of the awakening of Israel to the Messiah which occurs in fullness in the tribulation period. It also is a double reference to the church awakening in resurrection at the rapture.
The term, the “last trumpet” relates to the last trumpet for the church age. There is also a last trumpet for Israel at the Second Coming.
The shofar trumpet was also used at the Exodus (Exodus 19:19). It was also used at the battle of Jericho (Joshua 6:20) and at the Ingathering of Israel (Isaiah 27:13), Most importantly the shofar blast is used to signal the repentance of Israel! (Isaiah 58:1)
■The coronation of Messiah and the wedding relates to the events for the church and our Messiah in heaven after the rapture. (More on this another time).
The point that I have often made and do so again, is if Rosh Hashanah is not fulfilled by the rapture and tribulation start, then what else would find such accurate and amazing fulfilment in this feast? The answer is nothing.
Amazing Hebrew idioms:
We must bear in mind that the Bible was written by Jews to Jews of the Old Covenant and a mostly Jewish early church. There are dozens of Hebrew idioms used in the New Covenant. Not surprisingly many of them relate to our subject – the rapture of the church.
Here are some rapture idioms to throw you into a tail spin:
■No one knows the day or hour. This is actually a Hebrew idiom meaning no one knows the day or hour of the start of Rosh Hashanah because it could be one of two days. But two days is the limit, not a general - no one knows!
Do you see how that changes the well used traditional customary belief? (And it makes such perfect sense!)
If you want to get rid of the Rosh Hashanah connection then the plain use of language means a very short defined period of time and not a wide unknown time.
Day: Strong’s G2250, “hemera.“ Meanings: One single day between light and dark.
Hour Strong’s G5610, “hora.” Meanings: A defined short point in time.
Day and hour means a specific short point in time.
■The twinkling of an eye: The rapture will occur incredibly fast – in a “twinkling of an eye”. (1 Corinthians 15:51)This is another insightful idiom. In Hebrew tradition, the twinkling of an eye is that time period at sunset when the sun hits the horizon and appears to twinkle for a moment.
Does that mean that the rapture will occur at sunset? – Yes, I would say so - Jerusalem time.
These, below are not really idioms, but are misconceptions about the word meanings:
■The last trump is often thought to be the last trump of Revelation 11:15-18. It is not. It is the last trump for the church age. Besides, John wrote the Revelation many years after Paul wrote of the last trump. He could not have been referring to the last trump of Revelation.
■The great apostasy / falling away must come before the rapture, so they say. But the apostasy could also be referring to the rapture itself! It does not have to mean a “falling away from the faith.” In the original, it simply means “departure.” Context must be applied. There are other verses speaking of churches becoming lukewarm and apostate, but on this occasion it refers to the departure of the church – the rapture.
Some rapture facts:
●Come up here:
Revelation 4:1 “After these things, (continuous thought) I looked and behold a door standing open in heaven. And the first voice which I heard was like a trumpet speaking with me, saying, ‘come up here, and I will show you things which must take place after this.”
“After these things” and “after this,” refers to what is immediately after the previous three chapters on the church age. From here on the church is not see on earth again during the tribulation period, but Israel is and so are the saints who are saved during the tribulation.
“Come up here” Strong’s G305, “Anabaino”. Meanings: Spring up. Rise up, enter in, or ascend.
John was raptured at this point, just before the tribulation begins – a type for the church.
Psalm 47:5 “God has gone up with a shout, the Lord with the sound of trumpet.”
Romans 11:25 speaks of salvation going to the Jews when he full number of Gentiles has come in. The term “come in” is Strong’s G1525, “Eiserchomai.” Meanings: Come in, enter into existence, or come to life.
The meaning of this is normally seen to be the full number of Gentiles being saved. That is true, but the word meaning also applies perfectly to the rapture. In other words, when the full number of Gentiles (the church) has been raptured, all Israel will be saved!
How and amazing is that?
If we take it a step further, who is it that acts as God’s evangelists in the tribulation period? It should be the church, but the church is nowhere to be found. It is Israel and God Himself.
Note: In the tribulation period there will be a huge apostate Babylonian-influenced church, left behind at the rapture that will be trying to win people to their false-prophet led false church.
The rapture will be a hated thing because it separates forever. The world church will have no rapture, because they are not separated from the world in the first place. Even their Jesus is a cross-less unholy, fictitious Jesus – another Jesus!
2 Kings 2:11 “Then it happened, as they continued and talked, that suddenly a chariot of fire appeared with horses of fire, and separated the two of them; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.”
The rapture is the great separator! By the way, the word “holy” means separate, apart, pure.
The rapture will be hated because it will remove people who are 100% perfect from the unholy, unrighteous, sin-loving masses. Yes, true believers are 100% perfect in their re-born spirit, not in soul or body. Unbelievers have no re-born spirit. They are one with their father the devil.
●“It was given to Satan to overcome the saints”! (Revelation 13:7) But how can this be? As born-again, Spirit-filled believers, Satan can’t get to “God in us.” The reason is because those being referred to hear are a different sort of saint. These are the tribulation saints, who are not born-again in the same way as the church is.
This means that believers of the church age and of the tribulation will have certain fundamental difference to them. This is a pre-tribulation rapture proof.
●At the rapture we get new bodies that will never marry or die. (Matthew 22:30) At the Second Coming, those saved during the tribulation get longevity restored and the curse lifted, but they will marry and will still die in the Millennium.
So if you believe in a post-tribulation rapture, you have to accept that the church will be those who have longevity restored, and still marry. (1 Corinthians 15:52)
Dramatic rapture changes to our bodies:
●Corruption puts on incorruption. ●Dishonour becomes glory. ●Weakness gives way to great power. ●The natural becomes spiritual and supernatural. ●Mortal becomes immortal. ●Our limited knowledge changes to all knowledge and pure wisdom. ●This body of humiliation changes to exaltation. ●This temporal life becomes eternal. ●We become like Him – holy.
The rapture and Israel:
It is vitally important to know that there is an unbreakable connection between God’s plans for Israel and the rapture. The rapture ends the church age and begins the dispensation of Daniel’s seventieth week of years – the tribulation period.
There is not one verse of scripture indicating that Israel in the tribulation is the church. If you try to make it so, you will have endless problems fitting the prophetic scriptures together.
Israel today is effectively a sad “bread-basket of tears” but will be turned to joy and celebration, as they finally fulfil what they were called and chosen for in the beginning.
Isaiah 65:19 “I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in My people; the voice of weeping shall no longer be heard in her nor the voice of crying.”
The speed of the Rapture:
One of the reasons the Bible defines the rapture and the Second Coming so differently is to maintain a dispensation difference, and to warn of the great danger of people falling for the antichrist.
At the rapture of the true church, the Lord descends to snatch and grab believers up into the air and on to heaven at lightning speed. At the rapture believers go immediately to heaven without coming back to this earth for anything, not even to finish their cheesecake.
This is not how it happens at the Second Coming, where our Lord descends slowly as He left, and touches down on the Mount of Olives, from where He goes into Jerusalem. The world will see this event through the media, but not the rapture.
If you mix these up and say, as many do, that there is only one event, you are in danger of receiving the antichrist, because he will walk around Jerusalem where he will proclaim himself to be God. He does not descend to snatch anyone into the air at lightning speed.
If replacement theology or the post-tribulation rapture doctrine is correct, the church replaces Israel and therefore goes through the tribulation period. This is when Israel will be saved en masse. That would mean that the church gets saved in the tribulation en masses! That is insanely illogical.
Will the rapture be a surprise?
It will be to most and won’t be to true believers who are informed watching and ready.
Revelation 3:3 (Headed - message to the dead church)...”If you will not watch, I will come upon you as a thief, and you will not know what hour I come upon you.”
Matthew 24:43 “If the head of the house had been awake, he would have watched and known what hour the thief would come.”
This is effectively saying: If you wake up I will not come to you as a thief and you will know the time.
Was Noah surprised by the flood? No, but the masses were.
Luke 12:56 Jesus rebuked those for not knowing the signs of the weather in relation to the signs of time of His coming.
Matthew 24:33 “So you also, when you see all these things, know that it is near, at the very doors.”
I get so excited about the thought of all the glory that is coming. I can’t wait, but have to. In the mean time set your focus on eternity and not on this world. Make proclamations and decrees and write them out. Make many prayers about it all.
Wonderful things are coming soon!
