Jesus warned of persecution that would come as the end nears.
“Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. But he who endures to the end shall be saved.” – Matt. 24:9-13 Continue reading
Revelation 19 and 20 describes the final acts of this age. It begins with the separation of the true Church from the false church (the Whore of Babylon) and the judgement of the false church and proceeds quickly to the marriage 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.” – Rev. 19:7-9
“And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.” – Rev. 16:12
Now I know the phrase ‘kings of the east’ could refer to any number of nations; India, Russia or China for example. But, if we are indeed very close to the battles in Ezekiel 38, in which the radical Islamic governments are dealt a severe blow, I would bet that China is the chief concern. They have been steadily building their military, specifically designed to counter the U.S. military. Their Continue reading
In a recent article (The Hour of Trial-it’s coming) I referred to turmoil that will be unleashed on the earth as God separates the sheep from the goats. Revelation reveals how to be kept from this time of trial –
“Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.”– Rev. 3:10
This was the promise to the Church of Philadelphia but, why are they the only one of seven churches to be given this promise? Jesus Himself gives this answer – Continue reading
“Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God. …. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming.” – 2 Thes. 2:3-8 Continue reading
Psalm 2 reveals a truth that liberals who are being controlled by the spirit of Antichrist should know about – GOD IS IN CONTROL!
“Why do the nations rage, And the people plot a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, And the rulers take counsel together, Against the LORD and against His Anointed, saying, “Let us break Their bonds in pieces And cast away Their cords from us. He who sits in the heavens shall laugh;
The Lord shall hold them in derision. Then He shall speak to them in His wrath, And distress them in His deep displeasure: Yet I have set My King On My holy hill of Zion.” … Now therefore, be wise, O kings; Be instructed, you judges of the earth. Serve the LORD with fear, And rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest He be angry, And you perish in the way, When His wrath is kindled but a little.
Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him.” – Psalm 2
Man is just now beginning to understand DNA and the mysteries of its determinations in our lives – but God knew about it from the beginning because He created it. He knows the end from the beginning and He alone has determined the seasons of our destination. He locked it all in the seals of Revelation which no one could open except the Son. The future is fixed, revealed in the heavens and by the Word of God. Continue reading
I believe in the prophecies of the Bible and thus I know there is a time coming, a time of trouble, a time when God begins to judge the world for wickedness. Many Scriptures speak of it from the Old to the New Testament –
“Alas! 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.” – Jer. 30:7
“The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.” – Joel 2:31
“For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.” – Matt. 24:21
These are just a few of the Scriptures that speak of this time so, since God has warned of this time so often, shouldn’t we pay attention? Why is it coming? Is there a way to escape it? Continue reading
