The Elect, The Bride, and the Tribulation Saints

The Rapture of the Bride 
And the Great Tribulation

Greetings in the Name of Yahushua, Jesus Christ, our King.

Last evening I was privilege, by the Grace of our Lord, to present the following information on the FallenAngels.tv radio show.  The amount of material was significant, and the show ran 30 minutes overtime.  Sadly there were a number of callers that did not have an opportunity to be brought on the show toward the end.  I pray we have more time to allow them to reach out and bring forward their questions on a future show, or that they feel led to email me at jbaptist777@gmail.com with any questions they may have.

Preparing for the Show

As I’ve mentioned in the past, I was raised a “no rapture” person, and then studied the subject intermittently over the last 30 years under a number of advanced teachers.  Some of the older articles on Tribulation-Now reflect my reluctance on taking a stand, one way or the other.  The scripture can be confusing when researching these things, and it tends to be a source of great division amongst the churches and brethren.

That being said, in the recent months, a number of rather supernatural events have led to me becoming as sure as I could ever be, about what the scripture reveals.  While I had pieced together a number of key points that seemed rather conclusive, I still have some loose ends that I needed to resolve before the show began.  So yesterday morning I got up early and tore into the scripture and some supporting books and lectures, hunting for the answers.  Not only was I led to discover those answers, but the Lord showed me things I had never seen before.  Wonderful and now obvious answers that I hope to share with you in the article.

May you be Blessed in the Name of Jesus

Foundational Scriptures to Consider

First it’s important to lay down a basic foundation.  I find it fascinating and rather sad, when folks call these concepts “escapism”.  It was Jesus Himself that commanded us to pray to “escape these things”, yet so many ridicule this concept.  The things that will unfold during the Great Tribulation are so utterly horrible, that anyone who thinks they are going to “hang out” in the mountains until Jesus returns is … well … as Jesus Himself puts it in Matthew 25, a “Foolish Virgin”.  Let the Lord bear witness to you, and may you be led to spiritually prepare yourself for the wonder that awaits you in the Heavens by being found worthy.  This is a far better plan than digging in a hoping to survive an onslaught of horror that will almost certain lead to a very bad situation for those that are “remaining on the earth”.

Let’s begin by reviewing the first verse in Revelation.  Throughout this teaching I will add text in parenthesis to “call out” key points for your better understanding.

Rev 1:1

The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show His servants — things which must shortly (Rapid Fire Succession) take place.

Here you see that God gave “Jesus Christ” this “Revelation” to share with His servants.  That’s us!  Next you will notice that when the word “shortly” is used, it actually means “rapid fire succession”.  This is called out in the Strong’s description of the word “shortly” here below.

NT:5034

NT:5036; a brief space (of time),

Nibiru / Planet X brings Isaiah 24s Judgement Upon the Earth

The reflects, what I consider to be the obvious.  Since it is pretty clear that a Brown Dwarf star, 3 times the size of Jupiter has entered our Solar System, it is more than likely the “Trumpet and Bowl Judgments” will cause catastrophic climate change, seas to roar, the world to “wobble like a drunkard” and horrible calamities of apocalyptic proportions.

And since this Nibiru / Planet X object will certainly affect the earth more than once in it’s elliptical path through our Solar System, it stands to reason it will be used by God to inflict this judgment in two horrible passes.  One will be the Trumpet Judgments, and the other will be the “do-all-end-all” bowl judgments.  Never mind the UFO invasion and war that gets tossed into the mix.  Good luck with your “underground bunkers”.  There will be no escape and BILLIONS will die.  The only true escape is through a relationship with the King Yahushau, Jesus and his legions of awesome angels who will come to “rescue you” in the nick of time.  That is providing you are “found worthy”.

Scripturally, Planet X is considered by many extremely well researched scholars to be the “Sign of the Son of Man” in Matthew 24:30, and the “Destroyer” found in Jeremiah.  Moreover it is called out in 2 Esdras 15 as the “Horrible Star”.  I’m sure there are many other “allusions” to this cosmic monster throughout many more books of the Bible tore out by the pagans over thousands of years to prevent God’s people from finding their way to salvation in hopes of thrusting them directly into the Great Tribulation where Satan has a HUGE ADVANTAGE.

I wonder why the Vatican locked up their library recently.

No I don’t.

No Flesh Would be Saved

So you figure you are special and have God’s protection to save you from the elements of judgment?  Never mind God warned us in the scripture that “it rains on the just and the unjust”.  I wonder why the Georgia Guidestones have a target population of 500 M written on them in plain sight.  The dark minions of Lucifer’s army know the scripture far better than any Moody Bible Institute graduate.  They have been planning and preparing for these final days of destruction for thousands of years.

This is why Yahushua Jesus Himself warns us that God would have to SHORTEN the days of the Great Tribulation or “no flesh would be saved”.  Wow.

Matt 24:22

And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened.

You will NOT be considered a “martyr” for Jesus Christ if you die in an earthquake or a resulting tidal wave.  You will not be considered a martyr for Jesus if you are slaughtered during a UFO invasion during the “Strong Delusion”.  You will not be considered a martyr for Jesus if you get crushed in a bunker or hiding in a cave.  Jesus will consider you a “Foolish Virgin” and if you are not right with the Lord, and found Holy and righteous unto God, you will end up DEAD and facing an eternity of contempt and condemnation in a very horrible place.

Escaping All These Things

It is critical you prepare yourself spiritually and become as “sin free” as possible.  Repent of your sins daily and mean business before God.  Cry out to the Lord and establish a praiseful, prayerful relationship with Jesus Christ.  It does not matter how horrible a life you have led or what sins you’ve committed.  All sin is unacceptable to God and EVERYONE is eligible to seek salvation and remission of sins through Christ Jesus, providing you “feel the call” of the King.  If you have made it this far into the article, suffice it to say, you are “eligible”.  Amen.

Luke 21:34-36

The Importance of Watching

(Matt 24:36-44; Mark 13:32-37)

34 “But take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness, and cares of this life, and that Day come on you unexpectedly. 35 For it will come as a snare on all those who dwell on the face of the whole earth. 36 Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.”

This is the most critical warning to wrap your arms around.  This is a promise that it is possible to “escape ALL these things” that will come to pass.  Embrace this with all your heart and KNOW that if you are sincere, no matter what, the King of Kings will “snatch you up” and take you to an eternity of peace and wonder on a level you cannot imagine is possible.  This earthly existence is ONLY a “particle based illusion”.  This is a “testing ground” for you to return to your “first estate” and rule and reign with Jesus Christ in the “Heavens”.

This is Not About Harps, Clouds and Blond Angels

Dont’ limit your tiny imagination to the nebulous concept of “floating around an a cloud with a Harp” here.  This is going to be far more like “Star Wars” and “science FACT” then some ridiculous nonsense about “puffy winged blond angels”.  The Universe is HUGE.  These are the “Heavens” which the Bible speaks about.  While God’s “3rd Heaven” is a special realm, the references to the “Heavens” are what the Hubble Space Telescope pictures show you.  Getting off this rock and ruling and reigning with our King is far more fabulous than anyone could ever guess.
Expand your imagination.  You are a “Son of God”.  And God is “intergalactic”.

Get it?

The following section breaks into the “Outline” of scriptures that define the Elect, the Bride and the Tribulation Saints brought out on the Zen Garcia, http://www.fallenangels.tv/ radio show on March 19th.

I. GREAT TRIBULATION REFERENCE POINTS

First it’s important to understand there is no “tribulation period” defined in the Bible.  Hence, there is no “pre-trib” rapture.  Amen?  The fact of the matter is there is only Daniel’s 70th week.  This is a period of 7 years that has clearly already started, almost certain back in 2009, likely sometime around Obama’s election.  It doesn’t take a Ph.D. to see all the data suggesting Obama is at least “one” of the Antichrists.  But that whole concept is outside of the goal of this article.

Here you will note as far back as Deuteronomy, there were references made to the “prophetic” Great Tribulation.  The word “tribulation” is used all throughout the Bible as a period of difficulty.  However there are only about 4 – 6 references that are clearly referring to the Great Tribulation.  The most clear references to the Great Tribulation are stated in context with an “abomination which makes desolate” and a “warning to flee”.  However other references are used that clearly use the adjective “great” before the world “tribulation”.

Here are some of those scriptures.

a. Deut 4:30-31“When you are in distress, and all these things come upon you in the latter days, when you turn to the Lord your God and obey His voice 31 (for the Lord your God is a merciful God), He will not forsake you nor destroy you, nor forget the covenant of your fathers which He swore to them.”

b. Matt. 24:21“For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be.”

i. Matt. 24:15-20 -In context with a) abomination makes desolate, b) warning to flee Jerusalem

ii. Matt. 24:29“Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.

c. Mark 13:19“For in those days there will be tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the creation which God created until this time, nor ever shall be.”

i. Matt. 13:14-18 – In context with a) abomination makes desolate, b) warning to “flee”

1. Mark 13:14 -14 “So when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not” (let the reader understand), “then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.

It’s important to note in Matt. 24:29, you see where Jesus talks about a time “immediately after” the Great Tribulation of those days.  Here you see the sun will be darkened and the moon will not give its light.  Many other places this same series of events happens and are referred to as the “coming of the Son of Man” or the Day of the Lord.  This anomaly also is called out during the Fourth Trumpet in Revelation.  However it is quite possible, with Planet X and Wormwood, events such as this may happen more than once.  The Bowl judgements are going to be utterly horrible.

Be a good Berean and study the scripture yourself to “find out if it is true”.  Amen.

II. GREAT TRIBULATION STARTING POINT
(desecration of the temple body)

To the best of my understanding, there is only ONE scripture in the entire Bible that marks the beginning of the Great Tribulation.  Anyone who is paying attention today, realizes we are on the precipice of this extremely horrible series of events.  I believe it is reasonable for any good Christian to want to understand what “marks” the beginning of the Great Tribulation.

Here below I am showing Daniel 9:27.  However I am convinced this has NOTHING to do with a 3rd Solomon’s Temple.  Too much scriptural real estate is dedicated to telling us that God does not dwell in physical buildings.  Too many good Bible scholars have assumed the references to an “end of sacrifice and offerings” to mean there must be some type of 3rd Solomon’s Temple.  Virtually NO scholars have considered the attack on the temple body.  Our bodies.  The “alien-demons” have been hybridizing human and infecting our blood lines for thousands of years.  The TRUE temple is the dwelling place of the Holy Spirit which is our BODY.

A good friend of Tribulation-Now has spend dozens of hours researching this paradigm.  His name is Martin and he lives in Glasgow, Scotland.  If you have challenges with this subject, I might have to “sick Martin” on you.  And if I do, you better watch you because you will need a bigger faster computer to deal with all the data he will send you. God Bless You Martin.

Here is are some data points on Daniel 9:27.  In my terribly humble belief, and with the fear of God and love of his awesome majesty, I present to you my best understanding of what marks the “beginning” of the Great Tribulation.  God have mercy on us all.

i. Daniel 9:27 “Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week. But in the middle of the week, He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate, even until the consummation, which is determined, Is poured out on the desolate.”

1. Wing – “Of a Bird or Army, or a flying army”

2. Abomination – “Detestable things, Especially Disgusting”

3. Desolate – “To Astonish, Devastate, and Stupify”

When looking at the alternative meanings of the key words used in Daniel 9:27, it seems to me the start of the Great Tribulation is a UFO war of some kind.  You be the judge.  Perhaps this sentence should have read as follows:

And on the “wing of a flying army”, especially “detestable disgusting things” shall “astonish, devastate and stupefy”.

Mens’ Heart will Fail Them

This concept tracks back to Luke 21:25-28 where the Jesus warns that “men’s hearts will fail them” from fear and expectation of “those things” which are coming on the earth.  Are these comets?  Uhmmm.  I don’t think so.  Maybe.  But when you consider all the data, it sure seems more than likely these are “Battle L.A.” type disgusting things that “astonish, devastate, and stupefy.

Also notice Jesus says to “Look up and Lift your Heads!”  Awesome.  When we SEE this stuff unfolding we should be rejoicing because our “redemption draws near”.  AMEN.

Could I be wrong.  Absolutely.  Do I believe I am wrong.  Not at this time.  Am I painfully aware there are UFO’s already fighting in the earth’s atmosphere … you bet.  Go back and read the plethora of articles written since January of this year (and many prior) that make this dynamic perfectly clear in Jesus Name.

ii. Tracks Back to: Luke 21:25-28 “And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring; Men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28 Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.”

UFO’s / Ancient Aliens Cause the Great Falling Away

Its important to note these series of events likely lead to the “great falling away” and are caused by God sending a “strong delusion”.  While many progressive and enlightened Bible researchers agree, the Strong Delusion is almost certainly caused by these “Ancient Alien” star gods, few of them see the scriptural connections throughout the entire text.

iii. Tracks Back toTHE GREAT FALLING AWAY: 2 Thess. 3-4 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, 4 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 (the body), showing himself that he is God. (ANCIENT ALIENS)

CRITICAL NOTE: The “falling away” was mistranslated in the King James.  The term is actually “departure” and it refers to the rapture.  For more information on this wonderful discovery please read this article HERE.

iv. Tracks Back to – THE STRONG DELUSION – 2 Thess 2:9-12 The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, 10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, 12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness. (ANCIENT ALIENS)

Here is a warning to you.  The reason Jesus Christ “vomits” the Church of Loadicea out of His mouth in Revelation 3, is because “they will believe the LIE”… get it?   These are the “mega churches” that preach prosperity doctrine and have NO Holy Spirit in them.  They are almost certainly infiltrated with “reptilian” shape shifting leadership.  Robert Schuller (and company) are 33rd degree Masons and Luciferian worshiping filth.  And the list is enormous.

Many will “fall away” and believe the lie.  They are DOOMED.

III. WHO IS THE BIDE

Here below is a list of verses that clearly identify a special group of Holy Spirit filled believers that “do the will of the Father” and try as hard as they can to live a “sin free” and prayerful, praiseful life filled with the peace and glory of Jesus Christ.  These people have an extremely strong relationship with Yahushua Jesus.  This has nothing to do with “attending church” as Ezekiel 34 makes perfectly clear.  This has everything to do with trying your best to have a strong relationship with Jesus, and doing what the KING says to do.

If you care at all about your eternity, please in the Name of Jesus AT LEAST read Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.  It will only take you a few hours and you will learn everything you need to make it to an eternity of awesome joy and happiness with Jesus.

Matthew 25 talks about what is required to be properly prepared to be considered to be the Bride of Jesus Christ.  This is a special group of super strong and loving Christians that have plenty of Holy Spirit “OIL” in the Lamps.  In fact they even have “extra oil” in their “vessels”.

For more detailed information on the Bride and being fully prepared see the article entitled:

Oil in Your Lamp: The Plane Ticket Home
http://www.tribulation-now.com/2011/01/oil-in-your-lamp-plane-ticket-home.html

Here are the verses in the scripture that call out the metaphors which refer to the Bride of Jesus Christ being “rescued” off this “alien-demon” infested rock BEFORE (or at the onset) of the Great Tribulation of 1260 days or 3.5 years.

i. BRIDAL PREPARATION: – Matthew 25 – Wise and Foolish Virgins

1. Matt 25:4 but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.

ii. BRIDE: Rev 12:6“Then the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days.”

iii. BRIDE: Rev 12:14“But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, (away) from the presence of the serpent.”

1. NT:105 aetos (ah-et-os’); from the same as NT:109; an eagle (from its wind-like flight)

iv. BRIDE: Ezek 34:12-13 “As a shepherd seeks out his flock on the day he is among his scattered sheep, so will I seek out My sheep and deliver them from all the places where they were scattered on a cloudy and dark day.

v. BRIDE: Ezekiel 34:16“I will seek what was lost and bring back what was driven away, bind up the broken and strengthen what was sick; but I will destroy the fat and the strong, and feed them in judgment.”

vi. BRIDE: Rev 3:9-11“Indeed I will make those of the synagogue of Satan, who say they are Jews and are not, but lie — indeed I will make them come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you. 10 Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth.”

Note Revelation 3:9-11 is referring to ONLY the Church of Philadelphia.  This is only ONE of seven churches that received a “report card” from Jesus in Revelation.  And one of those churches was guaranteed a ticket straight into the Great Tribulation.  WOW.  More on that later.

However note the words, “indeed I will make them come and worship before your feet”.  Hmmm.  How is this possible.  If the Church of Philadelphia (e.g. “The Bride”) is “raptured” of the earth and flown to a place of safety “away” from Satan, whose dominion of on the earth, then how could this happen?

It seems Jude provides us this answers.

vii. Tracks Back To: Jude 13:

1. BRIDE: Jude 14-15 Now Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about these men also, saying, “Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of His saints, 15 to execute judgment on all, to convict all who are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have committed in an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him.”

When the UFO War Breaks, What Do You Do?

Here below is Isaiah, 26:20-21.  I believe this tells us exactly what we should do “after” we “look up” and see these things “coming upon the earth”.  Amen?
Take Refuge from the Coming Judgment

Isa 26:20-21

20 Come, my people, enter your chambers,
And shut your doors behind you;
Hide yourself, as it were, for a little moment,
Until the indignation is past.
21 For behold, the Lord comes out of His place
To punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity;
The earth will also disclose her blood,
And will no more cover her slain.

Note here the scripture doesn’t say to hide out for 1260 days.  Nope.  It just says “lay low” for a “little moment”.  Amen?  The rescue mission will come and “fetch you” out of here.

That is unless …. You are the Church of “Laodicea, Sardis, or Thyatira”.  Yikes.

IV. BRIDE: NOT APPOINTED TO WRATH

Here below you see scriptures that show “the spirit filled brethren” that they are not appointed to wrath as well as a promise they “they” will not be “overtaken as a thief”.

a. 1 Thess. 5:4But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief.

b. 1 Thess. 5:9For God did not appoint us to wrath

c. Romans 5:9Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him

V. WHAT IS WRATH

However it is critically important to grasp what exactly “wrath is” Amen?  Some think only the Bowl Judgments are actual wrath.  Some even think the Trumpet Judgments happened in the past.  I don’t think so.  Planet X is going to open up a can of “whoop butt” on the earth any time now, and has already most certainly been contributing to the seismic activity, earthquakes, animal deaths, electromagnetic disturbances, polar ice melting, and CMEs / solar flares, already.

In the New King James, Revelation 15 is subtitled “The Prelude to the Bowl Judgments”.  Let’s see what Revelation 15:1 says.

a. Revelation 15:1 – Then I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvelous: seven angels having the seven last plagues, for in them the wrath of God is complete.

Oh okay.  Well there you have it.  If the “seven last plagues” (e.g. Bowl / Vial Judgements) complete the “wrath of God” then the Trumpet Judgments were OBVIOUSLY “wrath”.  As Homer Simpson would say … “Doh!”

b. The Seven Prior “Plagues” were the Trumpets

i. FIRST TRUMPET: 1/3 Grass and 1/3 of Tree Burn – Solar Flare – (Move: Knowing w/ Nicolas Cage)

ii. SECOND TRUMPET: Mountain, on Fire, Falls into Sea, 1/3 of Fish Die, 1/3 of Ships Disabled

iii. THIRD TRUMPET: Great star, burning like a torch, Name was Wormwood, poisoned the waters, many men died

iv. FOURTH TRUMPET: Rev 8:12-13

1. 12 Then the fourth angel sounded: And a third of the sun was struck, a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third of them were darkened. A third of the day did not shine, and likewise the night. 13 And I looked, and I heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, “Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth, because of the remaining blasts of the trumpet of the three angels who are about to sound!”

Wow.  So here you see that ominous reference to the sun, moon and stars being “darkened”.  Hmmm.  I wonder if this is the “Day of the Lord”, of it that actually comes later during the Bowl Wrath?  After all, the Two Witnesses are here on the earth as part of the Tribulation Saints for the entire 1260 days (or 3.5 years) before “they” are mysteriously sucked up into a cloud being resurrected from the dead.

But wait.  Cant’ be.  Would that not constitute another type of rapture happening just prior to the Bowl Judgments?  Surely you don’t believe Enoch and Elijah are going to stand on a street corner in Tel Aviv shooting fire out of their mouths.

Fascinating.

VI. WHO ARE THE ELECT

There has always been some confusion about the term used for the “elect” of God.  It is clear to me that 2 Timothy 2:10 states the elect EVEN include the UNSAVED.  Hello?  This clearly means the “elect” of God are those that God chose before the foundations of the world.  These are the “predestined”.  The elect are a super-set of God’s chosen people who were “called by God” and knew Jesus before the foundations of the world.  The Bride is part of the “elect”, and the Tribulation Saints are part of the “elect”.

a. 2 Timothy 2:10Therefore I endure all things for the sake of the elect, that they also may obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory.

i. John 17:24

1. 24 “Father, I desire that they also whom You gave Me may be with Me where I am, that they may behold My glory which You have given Me; for You loved Me before the foundation of the world.

ii. Rev 17:8

1. The beast that you saw was, and is not, and will ascend out of the bottomless pit and go to perdition. And those who dwell on the earth will marvel, whose names are not written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world,

iii. Eph 1:4-5

1. just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, 5 having predestined us

VII. TRIBULATION SAINTS

So now let’s review who the Tribulation Saints are.  The Bible is extremely clear that there are “Tribulation Saints”.  In fact there is an entire chapter in Revelation dedicated to the definition of them.  So let’s take a look at some of the references that clearly show us there are “Tribulation Saints”.

Here you see the description of the Fifth Trumpet.  This is an especially horrible time to be on the earth.  This is what happens AFTER the three ominous “woes” of the Fourth Trumpet.

i. FIFTH TRUMPET: Locusts from the Pit

1. Rev 9:4-6They were commanded not to harm the grass of the earth, or any green thing, or any tree, but only those men who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads. (WARNING TRIBULATION SAINTS) 5 And they were not given authority to kill them, but to torment them for five months. Their torment was like the torment of a scorpion when it strikes a man. 6 In those days men will seek death and will not find it; they will desire to die, and death will flee from them.

ii. A MULTITUDE FROM THE GREAT TRIBULATION – Rev 7:13-15 Rev 7:9

1. Then one of the elders answered, saying to me, “Who are these arrayed in white robes, and where did they come from?” 14 And I said to him, “Sir, you know.”So he said to me, “These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

Note here that these folks “washed their robes” DURING the Great Tribulation.  Amen?  Awesome God.  I love our merciful wonderful God.  Praise Your Holy Name Yahushua Jesus!

Now let’s take a loot at the “Two Witnesses”.  These are especially important “Tribulation Saints” that are given special “Holy Spirit” powers to kick some bum for, …. how long?   Wow.  1260 days.  Amazing.

iii. TWO WITNESSES

1. 1260 Days of the Great Tribulation – Rev 11:1-3

a. And they will tread the holy city underfoot for forty-two months. 3 And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy one thousand two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth.

2. Two Witnesses Resurrected (Another Rapture?) Rev 11:11-13

a. Rev 11:7-10 7 When they finish their testimony, the beast that ascends out of the bottomless pit will make war against them, overcome them, and kill them. 8 And their dead bodies will lie in the street of the great city which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. 9 Then those from the peoples, tribes, tongues, and nations will see their dead bodies three-and-a-half days, and not allow their dead bodies to be put into graves. 10 And those who dwell on the earth will rejoice over them, make merry, and send gifts to one another, because these two prophets tormented those who dwell on the earth.

b. Rev 11:11 Now after the three-and-a-half days the breath of life from God entered them, and they stood on their feet, and great fear fell on those who saw them. 12 And they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, “Come up here.” And they ascended to heaven in a cloud, (A SECOND RAPTURE) and their enemies saw them. 13 In the same hour there was a great earthquake, and a tenth of the city fell. In the earthquake seven thousand people were killed, and the rest were afraid and gave glory to the God of heaven.

Well my, my, my.  I guess that wouldn’t be such a big deal if it were only a couple of bearded wonder Hebrews on a street corner in Tel Aviv.  But there is much evidence to show that the Two Witnesses are actually a subset of the Tribulation-Saints that survive long enough to do some Holy Spirit damage on the enemy.

Here is a nifty You Tube video that shows the scriptures to help you understand we are not dealing with a couple of ancient resurrected prophets.  Amen?

The Two Witnesses of Revelation Revealed:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MmtYF0y29xI

3. Who Are the Two Witnesses

a. Rev. 11:4 “These are the two olive trees and the two Lamp Stands that stand before the Lord of the earth”

Question: Who is the “Lord of the Earth”?  Right …. it’s Satan.  And what happens to the Bride in Revelation 12:14?  Correct!  She is taken away from the “presence of the serpent”.  Get it?

b. Rev. 1:20 “The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and the SEVEN LAMP STANDS are the SEVEN CHURCHES

c. THE SEVEN CHURCHES ARE:

(i. Refer: Ezekiel 34: Woe to the Shepherds, I will separate the SHEEP from the SHEEP)

ii. Ephesus

iii. Smyrna

The Four Churches of Today

As pastor Chuck Missler most amazingly noticed, the final “post script” of the last four churches in Revelation 2 and 3, is “reversed” so the “he who hath an ear” statement is the “final word”.  As he correctly states, this implies that these four churches are almost certainly representative of those that exist currently.  And when you examine the characteristics of these churches … wow … does it fit perfectly.

v. THYATIRA (He who hath an ear = Post Script)

1. Rev 2:20-21 (Roman Catholics)

2. To teach and seduce My servants to commit sexual immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols.3. Indeed I will cast her into a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her (the virgin) into great tribulation

Pay attention here.  If Thyatira is CAST into the Great Tribulation, then Philadelphia is clearly “delivered from the Great Tribulation”.  Get it?  How obvious can this be?

vi. SARDIS (He who hath an ear = Post Script)

1. Rev 3:1 “I know your works, that you have a name that you are alive, but you are dead.” (no HOLY SPIRIT teaching)

This is a HUGE list of churches that include all of the Herbert W. Armstrong offshoots, and ANY church that does not focus on the HOLY SPIRIT.  Amen?  Sorry but if your church does not teach the power of the Holy Spirit is KEY, Baptise people in the Holy Spirit, lay on hands, heal the sick, and cast out devils, wellllll.

Looks like you are in a church of SARDIS.

Rev 3:6




6 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”‘


NKJV

vii. PHILADELPHIA = GONE = RAPTURED

viii. LAODICEA

(He who hath an ear = Post Script) BUT Jesus spews / vomits them out of his mouth, (a special case, wealthy and hypocrites, PROSPERITY DOCTRINE – Hypothesis: Owned by Reptilians, Robert Schuller, Joel Olstein – doomed to believe the LIE and fall away)

d. DISPOSITION OF THE LAMP STANDS

i. Rev. Chapter One – The Lampstands are on the Earth

ii. Rev. Chapter Four – The Lampstands are in Heaven (Those who joined Philadelphia)

e. THE OLIVE TREES

i. The Gentiles are grafted onto the Olive Trees

ii. Original Bloodlines of Abraham, Israel

f. WHAT DO THE WITNESSES WITNESS TO ?

i. GOD (YHWH) being the only True Living God

ii. YAHUSHUA – Jesus the Savior of Mankind

iv. MARTYRS BEHEADED IN GREAT TRIBULATION Rev 20:4

a. 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.

For more information on the “guillotines” imported into the United States from China by the thousands, see Pam Schuffert’s articles here:

And don’t by the POPPYCOCK about Pam not being legit.  That is CRAP.  I have studied her thoroughly and she is the real deal.  All you have to do is listen to her on a radio show.  She is so full of Jesus it’s amazing.  Most of us could only WISH we were that “on fire” for Jesus.

There is Still Hope for the Unsaved

v. WHOEVER CALLS UPON THE NAME OF THE LORD SHALL BE SAVED

Acts 2:17-21
 
17 ‘And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God,
That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh;
Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
Your young men shall see visions,
Your old men shall dream dreams.
 
And on My menservants and on My maidservants
I will pour out My Spirit in those days;
And they shall prophesy.
 
19 I will show wonders in heaven above
And signs in the earth beneath:
Blood and fire and vapor of smoke.
 
20 The sun shall be turned into darkness,
And the moon into blood,
Before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord.
 
21 And it shall come to pass
That whoever calls on the name of the Lord
Shall be saved.’

PRAISE JESUS … now that is LOVE!

Elect that are Rescued After / During the Great Tribulation

Ironically 1 Thess. 4:13-18 are the very scripture the pre-tribbers embrace as their “coup des tas”.  But wait.  There is clear evidence this is not before the Great Tribulation.   I will highlight those points below with bold and underlines.

VIII. ELECT RESCUED AFTER TRIBULATION

a. 1 Thess 4:13-18

i. 13 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. 14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus. 15 For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain (Strongs NT 4035: “To Survive”) until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep. 16 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. 17 Then we who are alive and remain (Strongs NT 4035: “To Survive”) 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. 18 Therefore comfort one another with these words.

Whoops if they will “always be with the Lord” after this even happens, then what about Jude 14-15?

b. 1 Cor. 15:52

i. Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed — 52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

c. Matt 24:29-31

i. 29 “Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 30 Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

Look at Today’s Warnings

IX. ISRAEL SURROUNDED – EGYPT & ARMIES SURROUND JERUSALEM

a. Luke 21:20-24

i. 20 “But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation is near. 21 Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, let those who are in the midst of her depart, and let not those who are in the country enter her. 22 For these are the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled. 23 But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! For there will be great distress in the land and wrath upon this people. 24 And they will fall by the edge of the sword, and be led away captive into all nations. And Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.

b. 2 Esdras 15:8-19

EGYPT MOUNTING AGAINST ISRAEL – WARNING OF GREAT TRIBULATION

i. 8 I will hold my tongue no more as touching their wickedness, which they profanely commit, neither will I suffer them in those things, in which they wickedly exercise themselves: behold, the innocent and righteous blood crieth unto me, and the souls of the just complain continually.

ii. 9 And therefore, saith the Lord, I will surely avenge them, and receive unto me all the innocent blood from among them.

iii. 10 Behold, my people is led as a flock to the slaughter: I will not suffer them now to dwell in the land of Egypt:

iv. 11 But I will bring them with a mighty hand and a stretched out arm, and smite Egypt with plagues, as before, and will destroy all the land thereof.

v. 12 Egypt shall mourn, and the foundation of it shall be smitten with the plague and punishment that God shall bring upon it.

vi. 13 They that till the ground shall mourn: for their seeds shall fail through the blasting and hail, and with a fearful constellation.

vii. 14 Woe to the world and them that dwell therein!

viii. 15 For the sword and their destruction draweth nigh, and one people shall stand up and fight against another, and swords in their hands.

ix. 16 For there shall be sedition among men, and invading one another; they shall not regard their kings nor princes, and the course of their actions shall stand in their power.

x. 17 A man shall desire to go into a city, and shall not be able.

xi. 18 For because of their pride the cities shall be troubled, the houses shall be destroyed, and men shall be afraid.

xii. 19 A man shall have no pity upon his neighbour, but shall destroy their houses with the sword, and spoil their goods, because of the lack of bread, and for GREAT TRIBULATION.

And What About the UFO Wars?

X. EXTRATERRESTRIAL ALIEN-DEMONS

a. 2 Corinthians 11:14

i. And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms (to change the figure of) himself (SHAPE SHIFTING REPTILIANS) into an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works.

b. 2 Esdras 15EGYPTIAN WAR followed by Chaldean Dragon Wars

i. 2 Esdras 15:29

Where the nations of the dragons of Arabia shall come out with many chariots, and the multitude of them shall be carried as the wind upon earth, that all they which hear them may fear and tremble

c. Habakkuk 1:6-8 – More on Chaldean Draconian Wars

Hab 1:6-8

For indeed I am raising up the Chaldeans,
A bitter and hasty nation
Which marches through the breadth of the earth,
To possess dwelling places that are not theirs.

They are terrible and dreadful;
Their judgment and their dignity proceed from themselves.
Their horses also are swifter than leopards,
And more fierce than evening wolves.

Their chargers charge ahead;
Their cavalry comes from afar;
They fly as the eagle that hastens to eat.

d. IsaiahFlying Fiery Serpents

Isa 14:29

29 “Do not rejoice, all you of Philistia,
Because the rod that struck you is broken;
For out of the serpent’s roots will come forth a viper,


And its offspring will be a fiery flying serpent.

Isa 30:6

Through a land of trouble and anguish,
From which came the lioness and lion,
The viper and fiery flying serpent,
They will carry their riches on the backs of young donkeys,
And their treasures on the humps of camels,
To a people who shall not profit;

XII. SHAPE SHIFTING REPTILIAN REFERENCES

a. 2 Corinthians 11:14 (Bible) – “For Satan himself transforms (to change the figure of…i.e.: shapeshift!) himself into an angel of light”

b. Testament of Reuben (Chapter 5) – “For they changed themselves unto the shape of men” –

c. Testament of Amram (Dead Sea Scrolls)- “I saw watchers in my vision. I asked them, you, what are you? They answered and said ‘We have been made masters, and rule over the sons of men.’ I raised my eyes and saw one of them, his looks were frightening, like those of a viper” – “Snakes are the forms of the transmutations of the shape of the Jinn [Reptilians]”-Sahih Hadith

d. Emerald tablets of Thoth – “In the form of man moved they amongst us, but only to sight (visible light spectrum), were they as are men. Serpent-headed when the glamour was lifted, but appearing to man as men among men.” –

e. Princess Diana – “They are not human”-, on Queen Elizabeth II & Prince Charles

f. Christine Fitzgerald: “The Queen Mother, now that’s a serious piece of wizardry. The Queen Mother is a LOT older than people think! To be honest, the Royal Family hasn’t died for a long time, It’s sort of like “cloning” where they take pieces of flesh, and rebuild the body, because they are “lizards” […] They are REPTILES

Summary in Jesus Name
  All throughout the Bible, there are mention of those who were “whisked up” into the sky.  I have yet to meet a theologian or teacher that has ever considered the possibility of more than one, “rapture-like” event.  I have mused with Tribulation-Now “thought-leaders” that our tendency to put God in a 12 oz. can with our peanut sized brain, might preclude us from realizing that perhaps, just maybe, the rapture type events might happen in strategic phases as things unfold.  The scripture certainly bears witness to more than one “rapture like” event occurring to God’s chosen people at various key times.

In any case I hope you are blessed and enabled to do some additional research with the scriptures presented in this article.

    escape all these things that shall come to pass. Well, nothing can "come to pass" if you're outta here! You can escape these things if you are right with God…but, it says that you will be ok while these things "come to pass". In other words, you will go through them but will be fine as long as we are fine with God in his eyes. Yes Satan knows scriptures and that's why the pre-trib rap concept is so popular around the world now…it falls right into the trap. He knows many want to be "the first one taken" and anxious to jump on "the plane" and get out of here…bait and catch. I follow what scripture says too. All I know is that Jesus comes back once, not twice. The first one that comes matches up with the first one taken. Jesus says for the saints to be patient. Jesus said that Satan and his demons cannot harm his saints…that doesn't necessarily mean physically obviously. But, the point is yes, we can "escape" these things that "shall come to pass"…they come to pass and we get through them without fear(very important)..thats what it means…because thousands of people will be in fear as they are now with all the terrible things happening. I love your passion and your web site as well and that's why I read it. But my friend, you are part of the majority…most people of faith are being taught this "getting out of here before the trouble" concept. And if that is such a popular doctrine now being taught throughout the churches, then what a better way for the false one to gather up all of those in a net like those deep sea fishermen gather up the school…or, in this case, the church. God bless you

    • Excellent and extremely enlightening and accurate. You have forgotten the biblical Harvest which tells us of the raptures of the elect.
      The Barley Harvest and Rapture of the Saints.
      During the growing season of a farmers crop there is a first fruits growth that comes up in the field first. This crop is to be an offering to the Lord. It is to be tied with a red cord or a sheave to make it well known to all who are in the field that it is an offering to the Lord. We, as Christians and Messianic Jews, are the first fruits of the field of harvest.
      We are marked by the Holy Spirit as belonging to our Lord. Jesus was the first fruit and we will follow after Him.
      Those who believe are the barley grain. Barley grain is a soft seed. In days of old when they wanted to separate the grain from the chaff they would put the barley on a sheet holding the four corners and would raise the sheet to the wind. This process is called winnowing. It would easily separate the two and would give them the pure grain. This is what we are like. We are soft and pliable in the hands of the Lord to be corrected and re-aligned to His ways.
      The Barley and (Flax harvest which is what white linen is made from (the robes of the righteous.) The red signifies divinity. When the first
      Ripened grain is harvested and brought to the priest for the waving. The priest waved the offering in the air before God, and God blessed the offerings that were given to Him. Leviticus 23:11
      And he shall wave the sheaf before the LORD, to be accepted for you: on the morrow after the Sabbath the priest shall wave it.
      Jesus Christ the first fruits rose and ascended to God on the day after the Sabbath to be presented to God.
      Just as the first fruits, the Lords chosen, His bride will be caught up in the air to be waved before by our High Priest to present worthy before God.
      1 Corinthians 15: 20-23
      But now Christ is risen from the dead, and has become the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep. For since by man came death, by Man also came the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in
      Christ all shall be made alive. But each one in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, afterward those who are Christ’s at His coming.
      We will be part of the “in-gathering” (or Rapture) with Christ Jesus during this time. We will not experience the wrath of the 7 year Tribulation period:
      For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, 10 who died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him.
      (1 Thessalonians 5:9-10)
      The Wheat Harvest and the Tribulation Rapture.

      Half way through the 7 year tribulation period there will be a Rapture of the Tribulation Saints by the Lord.
      “After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands…” Revelation 7:9
      Then one of the elders answered, saying to me, “Who are these arrayed in white robes, and where did they come from?”
      And I said to him, “Sir, you know.”
      So he said to me, “These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
      (Revelation 7:13-14)
      So we see in the above passages this wheat harvest will be a very great harvest, of those that had robes by virtue of their Faith in Messiah, but were not yet ready when the Bridegroom came for the Bride at the First Resurrection Harvest.
      Wheat is a tougher grain than barley. Thousands of years ago, farmers used a tool called a “tribulum” to separate the chaff from their wheat.
      Today our word “tribulation” is derived from the name of that tool. It takes a tribulum to break the seed from the

      chaff. It goes through a breaking process to become free and be what our Father, the God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob, would have us to be His sons.
      We have a God who loves us so much that He sent His only Son, Jesus to come in the flesh and dwell among men, teach us the way, die for us as a perfect sacrifice with all the sins of the past, present and future upon Himself, and taking the stripes upon His back, shedding His precious blood, was buried, raised, and ascended into heaven, sitting at the right hand of the Father and making intercession for us. He did it all for us!
      Just as the ancient farmers used a tribulum to separate the chaff from their wheat, God will use the Tribulation to separate the chaff from the lives of the Christians at this time.
      The final Harvest and the Second Coming of Jesus Christ!
      The last harvest will be the grapes harvest that comes from the four corners of the field. The grapes have to be crushed to be made into
      “New Wine.”
      The great tribulation will bring this about. This symbolises the people who accepted Christ during the second half of the 7 years, known as the Great Tribulation. That group of people will have to endure the most horrendous time ever.
      The Grapes of Wrath.
      The weak, untested Christians (grapes) and unsaved Jews (olives,) will be harvested together, later at the 7th seal, in the fall, which is about the time of the Feast of Tabernacles. (Representing God tabernacling with
      Israel, and as He will again in the Millennial Kingdom). In other words this Harvest will be at the time of the Lords coming to tabernacle here on earth.
      The passage that supports this view is Revelation 6:6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, a measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and thou hurt not the oil and the wine.
      The 3rd angel on the black horse, was told not to touch either the “oil or wine.” This means they are being grouped together, for the later harvest time.

  2. Johnny "B" says:

    The scripture bears witness for those with eyes to see and ears to hear. God Bless You. Study up my fellow Berean you seem to be missing some critical information. Amen.

  3. laura says:

    John reading your post today all I kept saying was why do we always put GOD in a box. Why do I always hear "Oh no then that means 2 raptures" I always want to say are you kidding me? God can have us back and forth to do whatever He pleases. It just kept coming to me the same thoughts why couldn't God? Then I come to the end and your comment "why do we want to put God in this 12 oz. can. I just had to say AMEN BROTHER we will all be blown away on the otherside when we find out what He can do and has for us!!!!!!!!!! Keep strong John

  4. Johnny "B" says:

    I know Amen. Thank you so much. Praise Jesus.

  5. laura says:

    John I just have to comment on this again. I re-read this information and it is so powerful and packed with info that I cannot get enough of. I have sent it on and on. I can't thank-you enough for putting it together in such an easy way to understand..I know this is the work of the Holy Spirit…God Bless you a million fold!

  6. Johnny "B" says:

    Praise Jesus Laura. I am still in awe. I really believe we have underestimated our awesome God.

  9. Heidi says:

    Yep. A multi-phased Rescue Mission methinks.

    1st, 2nd 3rd “watch”? Allusions to “different” watches for differnt “groups” within the body of Christ.

    And God knows them all ahead of time which “group’ they may be in.

    Luk 12:37 Blessed [are] those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them.
    Luk 12:38 And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find [them] so, blessed are those servants.

  10. Well-

    There is only ONE return of the Messiah, there is only ONE transfiguration.

    My bother, this question is easily answered- (regarding the rapture)- from the Lord’s perspective, rather than our own.

    “When I RETURN,’ (one time)- “will I find faith?”

    Now my Brother, was the query asked from an OMNI-POTENT God, because He didn’t already KNOW the answer- or because He ALREADY KNEW THE ANSWER?

    Did He ask, KNOWING B I L L I O N S of adoring disciples would swoon at His arrival?-

    Or RATHER, did He ask KNOWING M I L L I O N S of misguided followers simply would’t possess enough Faith, (oil)?

    also, consider that the TWO LAMPSTANDS are not just two men who have yet to die, but aswell may in fact be the Israelites as ‘one’, and the tribes of Judah, as the other.

    i have no delusions, i have to be here.

    • John Baptist says:

      Well praise God for your “take on things” Mr. Howard sir. I don’t necessarily agree but that’s awesome. Glory be to God. Let every man seek his salvation with fear and trembling. Thanks for your commentary.

  11. Mike says:

    The more I study, the more I know I have no idea. I can definitely see the pre-trib rapture as a tool used by Satan and his UFO friends to deceive followers into believing they missed it. This could affect their faith. I can’t see why Satan wouldn’t use this tactic if he had the technology. If many of us can think of this deception, I can’t see why he wouldn’t.

    Doctrine of imminence is key to living life. If we expect him at any moment, we will do our best to walk straight and not sleep (think he’s delaying his coming). This is healthy as long as we don’t oversell the idea and aren’t prepared to willfully stick our head underneath a guillotine by rejecting their laws. (noahide laws?) I don’t think many are prepared for that!

    So in regards to the Rapture, we should use this uncertainty as a means to motivate us to sanctify not debate when or if it occurs. We should be preparing to enter these dark times I think. To not could be disastrous. How does one prepare? I guess just understand how to convince people that these are the end times, aliens are in the bible and probably the source of the antichrist, and that Yahushua is the only way out.

    Honestly I am overwhelmed. I wonder if I’d be even qualified for this rapture. As a neophyte born-again I am extremely discouraged. I don’t even want to step into an institutionalized church. My perception is wolves teaching the sheep. Sunday Law. Saturday sabbath. How do we keep the sabbath if no one except the SDAs who have tainted teachings observe it? I guess just pray. I even talked to supposedly a female “Christian” reverend today online. I was telling her about the significance of the messiah and why it’s important. She says she’s put her Bible on the shelf for months. Unbelievable. God = love is the theme now.

    No one seems to have a clue what is going on. People don’t seem willing to listen. Why aren’t people putting these peaces of the puzzle together. It seems so obvious! You can definitely narrow this down to, these guys are playing out prophecy or this is prophecy being fulfilled. Anyone that hasn’t come to this conclusion has no clue at all what’s going on. I tell people. While I’m rummaging for answers they’re going on like this is nothing.

    This is prophecy. These people are way ahead of the game I think in their interpretations and where they want us to think we are. Anyways a lot of rambling. I think the issue is “am I eligible for the Rapture”, not when or it would occur. Many of you probably are. I don’t know if I can say the same about me. A lot of prayer needed now.

    Much love to all in these days ahead. Through Yahushua we are saved and no one else.

    • John Baptist says:

      No actually I believe you hit the nail on the head here. The point is “imminence” as a way of life, not trying to second guess things with a “rapture calculator”. It’s one thing to be excited and always watching for Jesus’ return, its another thing to become obsessive about it like the Thessalonnians did to the degree that Paul had to tell them to “calm down” and work for a living or “not eat”.

      Prayer and intense praise are key to your relationship with Jesus Christ. Knowing that we are in the season is a blessing we can embrace to further prepare ourselves. Any of us could die tonight in our sleep. How quickly we forget that.

      God Bless You Brother you are wise beyond your “born-again” years. Amen!

  12. David says:

    The rapture cannot occur until a couple of things happen first.

    2 Thessalonians 2
    2:1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
    2:2 That 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.
    2:3 Let 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;
    2:4 Who 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.

  13. DK says:

    The tribulation has not begun and will not begin until the Beast (whoever that turns out to be) signs a 7 year peace treaty with Israel. If they establish an official Palestinian state alongside Israel, things will begin to happen in a big way and in short order. When there is mid-east peace established, THAT will be the beginning.

    • John Baptist says:

      My goodness. Aren’t we the “expert”. You are in for a whopper of a wake up call. DK, God bless you but this will be the last comment of yours I will approve. You have a LOT of “learnin” to do. Thanks for sharing. Be Blessed in Jesus Name.

      • Old Age says:

        Dido, peace for the east can not occur before any raptures, we would not need the rapture then, DK. Thankyou JB for some insight on my learning path. In all my life, I have not understood the scriptures in the way you have shown them on this page. I find amazing that you remember to give thanks to the lord after every piece of info, and the stamp of “Amen” to it all, hmmmm, reminds me that I must be doing it wrong. Thankyou.

    • Greg says:

      This does make sense and ties in with the curse that consumes the earth in Isaiah ch. 24. It happens when the EVERLASTING COVENANT (made with Abraham) is broken (Is. 24:5) This covenant is broken when Israel signs with the Antichrist and Arab nations over a land dispute. Isaiah 24 confirms the chronological chain of events.

      • John Baptist says:

        Thanks for sharing brother. We shall see how things unfold. There’s a lot of confusion associated with the order of events and YOU MUST BE READY NOW, just in case you (and ALL OF US) are WRONG about the order of events. HUMILITY IS YOUR BEST FRIEND. Praise Jesus!!

  14. Greg says:

    Great article on the Rapture.
    For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.

  15. Paul says:

    Hello My Friend and good work! I would like to give glory and power and dominion to our Father God Lord Almighty First and foremost and to Jesus for his precious love of dying on the cross for all of us! Saying this my friend I have recently awoken to the brainwashing of society and God has placed a huge mission on my heart to help awake the elect that are sleeping and form the Lord’s Army! I am sure I am not the only one that is doing this, but in fact I see how evil the government is and their master scheme to decieve even the Elect few! Firstly about the abomination of desolation, I feel was either foreshadowed or happened last week being that The statue of liberty is the most pagan detestible statue that there is in the world and that being in the “temples” the churches last week in all Vaction Bible School! Babylon being New York City in my Opinion was there theme! Another note is that I do not know about or can doubt the Reptillian Shape Shifting theroy for it does make since, being that most of our leaders are Free Masons and that is in fact Satans Devil Worshipping Ceramonies! These leaders have plotted this for years ever since The Holocaust their final plot for global domination and have done it in many ways and the best ways you could decieve people are through what society “loves” Television, movies, games, sex, internet, MUSIC, the list goes on my friend, but the greatest deception to pull the wool over our eyelids have been the Wars between our fellow celsetial beings. We have been made to believe it is the Muslims fault the Muslims have made to believe it is the Christians fault and has been that way for 1,000’s of years this is the Greatest deception and causes us to miss out on the key elements of the Bible and how to live as true Christians! WHAT IS THE GREATEST FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT? LOVE, so how can we truly be filled with the spirit if we are full of hatred and hate towards other religions and faiths my friend! Do not get me out of context, for I do believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ Is our Savior and only way to eternal Salvation, but why are we fighting with other religions instead of finding ways to help save them from their misguidings of Satan? My friends we are blessed to be born Christians, but what if you were born a Muslim Child, would it not be correct for you to become A Muslim like your Father? Absolutely, for you are what you eat, so to say! That is why it is our job as Christians to Spread the Gospel, and with the overwhelming evidence against Christians it is very hard to do so, so we must be filled with the Holy Spirit ( The Voice of God) to so! Friends we are closely approaching the End of Days in my opinion and the facts are their to support it! We as AWAKEN people need to do the best jov we can in spreading the Gospel and by doing that we must take up our Armor of God and the Truth The Holy Spirit! This is a spiritual War now and the Devil is winning it, take a look around the world, we must be the “ELECT” in forming the Army of God! We must unite as celestial beings all in search of God and Salvation and Spread the Truth! The Truth is in the Bible and The Truth is Jesus Christ is our Savior! Friend you should search The Georgia Guidestone and Freemasonry Teachings and Look into Blood Sacrifices of the 2009 VMA MTV Live on Televison! You need to look into Prince Will.I.Am and you need to see his roots and his family ties! Once researching the Georgia Guidestones you will see that they say the “Christ” (Anti Christ) is now here and that was in 1982, Prince William was born in 1982 and when he was born guess what movie came out! TRON AND ET! TRON BEING RE RELEASED ON THE WEDDING DATE OF PRINCE WILL.I.AM and Camilla! That is that note, Mark of the best in revelations says it will be IN your right hand or forehead YOU NEED TO RESEARCH RFID CHIPS, FEMA CAMPS FOR THE RESISTAINTS! The antichrist will decieve many my friends and it is our job to wake them up who we can, but we must do it with caution for everything is already written in the Bible and the Bible is the 100 truth so do not take anything away from or add to it in your research and your own awakening! Now on that we must stop sugar Coating the Truth! We must understand that we are the tools! In Ephesians not sure the exact scripture but it says have nothing to do with the evil but only expose them! That is not the exact quote but a reference to! That being said tred lightly in doing so and be correct about it! and if your not 100 Percent sure then say this is your opinion! God is pouring out his spirit in abundance right now! You must wake up and repent, be filled with the Holy Spirit an be baptized and Spread the Gospel! Form your Armies for 2 is better then 1! REMEMBER THE GREATEST IS LOVE MY FRIEND SO LOVE YOUR ENEMIES THIS IS HOW YOU BE THE LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS! YOU MUST BE THE LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS OR HOW ELSE WILL JESUS FIND YOU AND HOW ELSE WILL ANYONE BE ABLE TO SEE? For more information and I have plenty to share please email me at lostblindlies@aol.com and I will be more then likely to discuss and pray with, form a relationship with you and fight the darkness together in helping each other become more Bold for Jesus! God Bless You All and Thank you Lord for your mercy and your LOVE for all of us and seeing the world in how it is and not crushing it and giving up on your elect! Lord we love you and we need you more then ever in this time and we Pray to be your elect and to be saved from the evil ones Lord! Bless all of your people and whomever your spirit is poured out to also give them the strength and boldness to stand up for you Lord! AMEN!

    This is what I have been taught since a child and much has been changed since then but learned the basics many years ago. I have a wonderful relationship with Yeshua, He tells me what to do and I do it. There is the Judgement seat of Christ where those in the Rapture are judged, given gifts, rewards and their wedding garments and return with Yeshua at the Second coming. I have read that the “falling away” is catching up/departing and had not been translated correctly. Those who are judged here will not be judged at the White Throne Judgement. Only those who are watching for Him, expecting this event will go in this Rapture, I do not know when it will take place but we are to watch. Those not watching will not be taken. The great multitude will come out of the great tribulation, those who thought they were ready but were not. It is about relationship, we can choose what our relationship with Yeshua is/will be. There will be a Wedding, the Marriage Supper of the Lamb, and much happening with His Bride. I know there are people who set dates. I do not talk about them nor ridicule them. I believe it is wrong to ridicule because one may not have come to the knowledge you have as yet, does not mean they will not. God is able to correct us all and none has all the truth and probably some error in all, things one has not yet come into the full knowledge of truth as yet. I keep hearing Thess about His coming as a thief— but it says He will not come to His own as a thief. I have seen pictures of the Pope’s throne and read it will be moved to Jerusalem as co-ruler with Muslims of this city. Especially those who show signs with their hands that they worship satan. I am just relating what I have seen and heard. I pray about these things and I expect He shall show me the truth. Some things I probably may never know until He wants me to know. There are pictures (HAND signs of those worshipping satan, pictures of those who do this all over the Internet) and a few of these on Prophecy Corner the Forever Family Marilyn Agee….also has pictures of the Hubble Telescope picture released by NASA of a city they call Heaven on that website. We do not believe everything we read. Sometimes we speak too quickly and later learn we were wrong. I know I have. You may not be like that.
    I have much to learn. Christians, believers, those who love and serve Yeshua are to be known for their love for one another…….I do not know about others but I have not seen a lot of that nor have I experienced it. I am ashamed before the Lord for all that I do not know for with everything I learn I see the mountain of what I do not know grow. I always pray that He will be quick to correct me. I admire those who study and who have learned so much, many become teachers, while a few become very good teachers. I remain a student for most of my near 70 years. I know one must be careful of what they teach for they will be responsible and accountable for those that believe them. We are to study scripture for ourselves and not just rely on a preacher or Sunday School or even Bible Studies. If we are not learning more I do not believe we are growing for in my opinion we must learn in order to grow. There is always room for more growth as there remains much to learn, at least for me. For those who believe they have arrived you might want to reconsider. There are such folk for I have met them. Their beliefs never change. I am corrected often by others as well. What I once believed I have found at times I was wrong. I am grateful He rebukes me and corrects me. I love this website. Have just recently found it. I look forward to exploring more of these articles. Lovely to hear people love Him with their words! Those who really love and care for others even when they believe the other one is so wrong and are quick to point out where one has missed it and they have the truth. Once in a church a few years ago, I asked a question which I was surprised to note it offended many. The Lord told me if you are in a place where you can not ask a question, you are in the wrong place. I am here to learn, not to ridicule or correct anyone. I have shared some of the things I have found. It is not “thus saith the Lord”, I am not a prophet. The Lord will show us the truth when we ask. When the Spirit is moving all those in tune with the Spirit will pick it up. I believe that may be why we will hear the same subject taught at about the same time many places. I believe God loves us all, wants to teach us all and that He has no favorites. He will speak to those who will hear Him. Those who will be obedient. w

    I do so hope to be as confident in the scriptures as you are JB, Im new at this game so please forgive my ignorance when I say that at most times Jesus the man is the only thing that makes sense to me from the scriptures, or else is very contradictory or taken out of context, missing the pieces before and after what has been used as an example. So I challenged myself to rediscover the Bible, and still so blinded as to what it is really saying, as ages come and go, empires born and die, leading me to ask other questions, am I of the seed God had promised land to, am I of the church God had promised safety to, if not what to do? So again onto more research, gathering my wits and looking back over my life to understand where there was overwhelming joy and faith of another that has protected me in my life from dangers, and I came up empty handed, I have always protected myself. Some will say I have not falled hard enough yet to understand, and my mind races tooo much for answers, is rape, abuse, poverty not hard enough. Mathew, Luke, John, hmmmm, as a child I would argue with the priests of our church with these scriptures, but now, here, again, Im hearing to read them again. I am going to do so. I do believe the power is within you, me, him and her. I dont contend too much with the idea of merely being a slave for another nation, to be born to spend ones life in persuit of only which has been told to you by a higher power, or to which we believe is the power, are we saying that we are born to wait for a lift on his shuttle, but first to do only as he has said (slavery here again). Why do so over and over, it seems we are in a bit of a rut and a good waist of time. Raptures surely reapeat themselves throughout the timelines and acient civilisations, Bible talks of this to, so what is the mission, as to, there has always been good in these events, is purely for population control, if so, its us that need to stand together and make the changes, and defend all humanity.

  19. Jennifer says:

    I have seen literally thousands of rapture timelines from watchers on all the rapture forums because they have been getting dreams, visions, words from the Lord, and all kinds of signs. I have seen Harold Camping and various others try to figure out the rapture using Jewish Feasts and also using parallels to Noah, the Jews leaving Egypt, Enoch’s rapture, Elijah’s rapture, and a parallel of Joseph’s brothers having 2 years of famine before they came into Egypt, parallel of Ruth and Boaz, the time Esther prepared to be Queen, and the parallel of Rachel/Leah and Jacob, and Jesus’ reign paralleling King David’s ruling over Hebron for 7 years (rapture) and then Jerusalem (millenium). Basically these timelines intrigued me so much and assisted me to hunt out how the Wise Men would have found Jesus. I have found such a paper and I must send it to you.

    The tribulation is coming, the signs in the Heavens are SCREAMING it. The eclipses on the 9th of AV, 3 years in a row from 2008-2010 were warnings to the Bride to prepare like Queen Esther in holiness and warn the people of the mark of the beast. The blood moons of 2011 are the sign of the rise of the antichrist and clearly we can see that with the TSA/Antichrist police system rising, the chaos in the Middle East as well as the Occupy Protests. Then we have November 2012 as the scales of judgment being poured out. Now if you watch Ken Peters: I Saw the Tribulation, he says there was a period of time after the rapture possibly 6-9 months until the global government was integrated. He said that the Christians had some time to preach the gospel and the antichrist came on the television saying not to worry, the global government will be here soon. So there is possibly a gap after the rapture until the first 3 1/2 years of the NWO under the UN. I believe that the rapture is going to happen in 2011-2012. The signs are also showing how the Jews must go into Petra around 2014/2015 during the blood moons for the second half of the tribulation. The Mazzaroth also shows the wedding of the lamb in July 2019 and devil being cast into hell for 1,000 years Hanukkah 2020.

    This is for the scoffers who say that we have another 10 years, or want to use the phrase no man knows the day or the hour in an attempt to go back and live in the world.

  21. Anyone who said only post tribulation rapture just quote Mat’24v38 does that sound post tribulation rapture to you? They always shut up at this!

    I was baptized as a Roman Catholic as a baby, but recently became Baptized in the Holy Spirit and am strengthening my relationship with our loving King. Am I doomed to not be raptured because I was initially in the RC church?

  23. Viviane says:

    I thoroughly enjoyed this article and may have to re-read it again to get the whole meat of it. I have a question, if the bride is taken before the man of sin is revealed then how does the two witnesses play a role in this? I just finished watching the link you provided which makes a whole lot of sense. Since the witnesses is the church and they are killed how can the church be killed and also raptured prior? Are the witnesses the tribulation saints that were left behind for the great tribulation who then become the witnesses then killed ? I ask because because the witnesses get to be in the presence of the beast which then contradicts how the church is raptured before the man of sin is revealed. I just want to get a clear understanding between the bride that is raptured versus the witnesses please. Also, looking at another timeline article on here shows before the rapture WWIII will occur before rapture is this correct? God bless.

    • John Baptist says:

      The prophecies, dreams and visions seem to indicate that the events spoken of in 2 Thess. 2 will all happen *prior* to the rapture of the Bride. In fact, there is little doubt that the Bride will be here on earth all the way through the calamities of Revelation chapter 6, and the events Jesus warned about in the “Olivet Discourse” (Mark 13, Matt 24, and Luke 21). For a pretty clear depiction of this timeline you may consider sifting through the many articles and graphs included at this link here: http://www.tribulation-now.org/2015-2016-rapture-timeline/

      I eventually need to go and clean up some of the older stuff that is no longer relevant to our current timeline such as the Shemitah stuff and the 500 days until Climate Chaos video. But the graphics that show Revelation 6 and how the rapture happens toward the END of the Sixth Seal all appear to be right on target at this point. Our “most likely” time of departure (amid much chaos) is early 2017 (very hopeful but based upon some prophetic information). So we shall see. God bless you.
