What the Feast of Trumpets Means (reposted)

Although this article was posted last year, I feel led to repost it. Since it is an election year, I believe we should be reminded of what the current Democrats stand for.

Pelosi House Passes Equity Act for Transgenders

Since the 1960’s an evil stain has spread across the land and it has only increased and magnified – the sin of abortion, the shedding of innocent blood. Now it is entrenched in the Democrat Party and they have made it part of their platform. And it has magnified to the selling of baby parts, even living baby parts. It has further morphed into transgenderism and the Democrats just passed a bill in the Congress allowing boys to compete in girls sports and use girls bathrooms and showers. They have ‘done much evil in the sight of the Lord’ just as King Manasseh did in the Old Testament. He also introduced evil practices to Judah, even sacrificing his children to the god Moleck.

Wishful Thinking

last wordThere are many voices predicting the soon rapture (catching away) of the Church. Some say “It must happen before the Antichrist is revealed!” but, what do the Scriptures say about it?

Paul wrote to the Thessalonians what is probably the clearest truth about this rapture (catching away) –

“But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus. For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep. For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words.” – 1 Thes. 4:13-18 Continue reading

Desiring a Better Country

rev 20_12There are some Bible verses you can read, even memorize, but not fully comprehend. The 23rd Psalm verse 4 is such a verse. As I stood in my son’s bedroom looking at his lifeless body, gently rubbing the hair of his head, the sense of loss was overwhelming. I felt my soul had been ripped out of me. I felt so helpless and all my hopes and prayers seemed so empty. Some time latter I re-read this verse and I realized, though I was grieving, Israel was OK because Jesus was with him as he passed from this life to the next.

“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.” – Ps. 23:4 Continue reading

When does the Rapture Occur?

battle_of_armageddon_lg1In a previous article, The End of the Age, I covered the marriage of the Lamb and His Bride, the battle of Armageddon, and the Thousand Year Reign of Christ on the earth. But, there was a question that arises from the end of the battle of Armageddon and the beginning of the 1000 year reign. I begin with Revelation 20 vs. 4 –

And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.” – Rev. 20:4 NKJV Continue reading

The End of the Age

marriage-lambRevelation 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
