Donald Trump’s National Emergency & the Wall

February 15, 2019

Many conservatives may be excited at the news of a wall going up. But’s it’s to late America can’t be saved. And that isn’t the only news: this will only enhance and allow the public to accept a future president (or possible current president) to declare an emergency and suspend or take away our gun rights.

Ever since I discovered that Bush and Kerry in the 2004 Presidential election, were both members of the Skull & Bones Secret Society and admitted it, I no longer trusted either Political Party on the national level.

Perhaps you don’t believe they are or were members, they both admitted it, see here:

 

This nation is very divided and is becoming worse. Do you think it is an accident that Trump ticks off the left and uses name calling and junior high belittling? Do you think that Obama accidentally ticked off the conservative right?

No. They are purposefully dividing America and are all on the same side!

Don’t believe it about Trump? You think he is a good guy? Then why did he accept money from the One World Order high level proponents? Do you think they will give him money and let him just do his thing and repent of his sins? Or are they controlling him?

Don’t believe he took their money?

Donald Trump Took Liberal Icon George Soros’s Money

Still think Trump is a repentant man? How about when he said he’s thankful for himself during Thanksgiving? See here:

Trump is a known womanizer, has he repented? Some say he has, but he has surrounded himself with ministers who have denounced the Protestant movement!

You can hear Copeland state such here:

 

It is also stated that Paula White is a spiritual adviser for Trump. Here is some of what the Wikipedia page has on her:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paula_White#Criticism_and_allegations_of_heresy

… she was the subject of an inconclusive 2007–2011 Senate investigation, but she refused to co-operate…

…Other allegations of heresy have emerged among conservative Christians, such as that White has denied the Trinity, partly as a result of a video shared by Christian author Erick Erickson that shows White assenting to the viewpoint that Jesus Christ was not the only son of God, in contravention of the Nicene Creed…

…Connor Gaffey has drawn attention to a 2007 televised event at which White stated, “Anyone who tells you to deny yourself is from Satan.” Gaffey contrasts that with Jesus’ words in the Gospel of St Matthew: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.”…

Another interesting article:

The crowd yelled ‘Lock her up!’ Then Trump thanked Clinton for ‘service to our country.’

https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/the-crowd-yelled-lock-her-up-then-trump-thanked-clinton-for-service-to-our-country/2016/11/09/1bbf4b44-a639-11e6-ba59-a7d93165c6d4_story.html?utm_term=.30257779b9f7

You still think Trump is repent and a good guy? Did you know both Judges he appointed are Jesuit trained!

Jesuits are in the thick of the One World Order along with Trump’s financiers Rothschild’s and George Soros!

Trump is being used by the global elitists, to bring division. They are allowing some conservative victories to get the leftists very angry. Soon the division will be so strong America will get even more violent, to abundant civil dispute and unrest. Then another national emergency will be announced. However, it is my belief the rapture will occur first.

Jesus said the Church is the salt of the earth, and salt preserves. Once the salt is gone, nothing will hinder from evil from rising up. Division will go full bore! Scripture also speaks of that the restrainer will be removed to allow the Antichrist to appear.

The rapture will bring all kinds of unrest and disasters unlisted and unnamed to America and the world. And this declaration of an emergency to build a wall is just a small plan to help one of these coming events.


Evidence We are in the Last Days

February 6, 2019

I, and many others, believe that we are in the Last Days. What does this mean, and is there any evidence?

First, it should be understood, we have been in the last days since Jesus came the first time!

In Acts chapter 2 we see the disciples and other believers were gathered together when the Holy Spirit was poured out and they began to speak in tongues. Peter quotes the book of Joel and states that this incident was part of the last days:

Acts 2
1 And in the fulfilling of the day of Pentecost, they were all with one accord in one place.
2 And suddenly a sound came out of the heaven as borne along by the rushing of a mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.
4 And they were all filled of the Holy Spirit, and began to speak in other languages, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
7 And they were all amazed and marveled, saying to one another, Behold, are not these who speak all Galileans?
12 And they were all amazed, and were in doubt, saying to one another, What does this mean?
14 But Peter, standing up with the Eleven, lifted up his voice and said to them…
16 But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel:
17 “And it shall be in the last days, says God, I will pour out of My Spirit upon all flesh. And your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams.

Other scriptures on this idea:

1 John 2:18 Dear children, this is the last hour

Heb 1:2 And now in these final days, he has spoken to us through his Son…

1 Peter 1:20 He was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake.

1 Corinthians 10:11 …They were written down to warn us who live at the end of the age.

So, it cannot be disputed we are in the last days, unless you do not believe scripture, if so, this article is not for you, instead I ask you to read this:

The Word of God

But the Bible does speak about a specific end of days in a more detailed way. However, I caution readers to not try to pin down exact wording and definitions based on such wording, as there are divisions and strange doctrines based on this.

Much of this is based on the phrase “the Day of the Lord”. Some will declare it to be all of the Tribulation, others the last half and so on. I think it hazardous to try and pin down specific details. Instead, I believe it to encompass the entire end days period, all of the Tribulation, and possibly even the 1000 years reign of Christ and Judgment day.

Many believe the Tribulation starts with the anti-christ confirming a deal or peace treaty. This is based on this scripture:

Daniel 9:27 He will confirm a covenant with many for one ‘seven.’ In the middle of the ‘seven’ he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And at the temple he will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is poured out on him.”

That “seven” is seven years discussed elsewhere, and given a few names. One name already shared as “the Day of the Lord” and the Tribulation, or even called The Great Tribulation (I believe both refer to the entire 7 year period), but also called “Jacob’s Trouble”.

If you wish more information about the actual 7 years, and details about this timing I recommend this link:

https://www.gotquestions.org/tribulation.html

There is another period of time, right before the Tribulation, some believe, including myself, called “The Beginning of Sorrows”, which we believe is right now. This is from this scripture:

Matt 24:8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.

It is my belief, that Matt 24:6-8 defines this period, and between 7 & 9 the rapture will occur. Here are those verses:

Matthew 24
6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled, for all these things must occur; but the end is not yet.
7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines and pestilences and earthquakes in different places.
8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.

In the original Greek, the word “nation,” is the word “ethnos” from which we get the English word “ethnic”. We have had ethnic cleansing in the world, and now their are ethnic factions and bitterness happening even in the USA. We are in the days of Ethnic disputes.

So I have defined what the Last Days are, and what the Tribulation time table is. And while I have given some evidence that we are in the Beginning of Sorrows, I haven’t given strong evidence that the time of the rapture is near nor that the Tribulation is about to start.

What Biblical evidence is there and what are the signs we are to look for?

Well I have already listed some of Matthew 24, and that is going to be the main focus of this post, but it won’t be the exclusive scriptural evidence. Matt 24 answers these questions, because the disciples asked Jesus for the signs!

Matthew 24:
3 And as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? And what shall be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the world?

It is my belief, and that of many prophecy students that the biggest sign is found in Matt 24:32-34:

32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree. When its branch is still tender and puts out leaves, you know that summer is near.
33 So you, likewise, when you see all these things, shall know that it is near, at the doors.
34 Truly I say to you, This generation shall not pass until all these things are fulfilled.

Israel is that fig tree and is their national symbol.

Hos 9:10 I found Israel like grapes in the wilderness. I saw your fathers as the first-fruit in the fig tree at her first time…

The term fig tree could be understood to refer to Israel Joel 2:21–25 as well.

The coming forth of the Fig Tree, and the generation that sees it, will be the people who witness all the End Times events Jesus speaks of in Matt 24!

Israel came back to being a nation in 1948. Therefore the generation that seen this occur will see the events of Matt 24 happen. Israel turned 70 in 2018. Most believe that a generation is defined here:

Psalm 90:10 Our days may come to seventy years, or eighty, if our strength endures; yet the best of them are but trouble and sorrow, for they quickly pass, and we fly away.

So a generation is 70-80 years. And 80 if there is strength. Some also believe the “we fly away” may prophesy of the rapture as well.

The 2nd Coming of Christ is 2 events. First there is a the rapture, where we will meet Him in the clouds if we are ready, and 7 plus years (The Tribulation period) afterwards, when He returns with us who are in heaven to the earth.

So if our understanding is correct, 80 years maximum is 2028. And that would be the year of His 2nd Coming, that is to the earth, and the rapture will be 7 plus years before that.

We do not know for certain 70-80 years, but it is most likely. Not many from the 1948 generation will be living after that. That generation must see this take place. The Birth of Israel, is the biggest sign, but not the only one. But we do know from other scriptures, Israel’s return as a nation is a last days sign:

Hosea 3:4-5 “For the Israelites will live many days without king or prince, without sacrifice or sacred stones, without ephod or idol. Afterward the Israelites will return and seek the LORD their God and David their king. They will come trembling to the LORD and to his blessings in the last days.”

In my opinion, and many others, perhaps the next biggest sign is Ezek 38-39, which describes a war upon Israel in the last days, after their return. Some of these nations in past years were friends to Israel, but only now, 3 of these nations are in Syria, on Israel’s northern border: Russia, Iran, and Turkey.

Only in the very recent months has this occurred!

In conjunction with this prophecy, is the destruction of Damascus (Syria’s capital and the world’s oldest inhabited city) found in Isa 17:

Isaiah 17
1 The burden against Damascus: Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a heap of ruins.

Many think, the destruction of Damascus, will trigger the Ezek 38 war. This is why I, and many others, keep our eye on Syria, as well as Israel!

Now that I have shown Biblical evidence that time is short, it is time for everyone to be ready.

All those who are Born Again, will be raptured before the Tribulation and the revealing of the anti-christ. I ask you to consider praying and believing something like this:

Dear Jesus,

I come to you, to offer my life, not only do I believe in You; in your crucifixion, and your resurrection; but I believe I died with you on the cross. My sin has been paid for, and I also have the resurrected life in me. I offer myself to you, to let You live through me. I will submit to your Holy Spirit to lead me into truth and away from sin. Lord, You are my Shepherd, and I will trust you to lead me to life eternal. Today, I not only call you Savior, but I make You Lord of my life.

In your Holy name I pray,
Amen

Mystery Babylon Part 2

January 24, 2019

This is a continuation of the teaching on Mystery Babylon which I discussed here:

Mystery Babylon

I also discussed a smaller amount here:

Who is Babylon, the Anti-Christ, and the False Prophet?

But spoke more on Commercial Babylon there, and on the other topics listed in the title.

But importantly, which I discussed at that 2nd link, is the role of the False Prophet and Mystery Babylon. As I shared there, it is my belief, but by no means am I dogmatic on this, that the Pope will become the False Prophet and the leader and key designer of the One World Religion.

I had issues with such a theory before because a Pope would be aligned with Rome and would not tolerate it’s destruction by the 10 kings who serve the anti-christ…

Rev 17:16 and the ten horns which you saw on the beast, these will hate the harlot and will make her desolate and naked. And they will eat her flesh and burn her with fire.

But the current Pope is a Jesuit, and his allegiances are to the corrupt Jesuit order and not the Vatican! I will leave the readers the opportunity to study the evil Jesuits on their own if they wish.

Therefore I see no problem with the current Pope allowing the destruction of the One World Religion by the kings who serve the anti-christ.

You see, the anti-christ will rise to power with the help and use of the One World Religion…

Revelation 17 MKJV
3 And he carried me away into a desert by the Spirit. And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet-colored beast, filled with names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.

These two are intertwined, and I believe so through the False Prophet. But, it is also possible the False Prophet is not the head of Mystery Babylon, the world will have to wait and see, but I won’t be here to see, as I will be raptured out of here, and so can you:

Are You Prepared for the Blessed Hope?

The Bible says the False Prophet will cause the whole world to worship the anti-christ:

Rev 13:
11 And I saw another beast coming up out of the earth. And it had two horns like a lamb, and he spoke like a dragon.
12 And it exercises all the authority of the first beast before him, and causes the earth and those dwelling in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.

But for now I wish to discuss with such speed the rise of the One World Religion after the rapture.

By seal #5 a great many of Christians will be killed by the work of the One World Religion:

Rev 6:
9 And when He had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held.
10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, Until when, Master, holy and true, do You not judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?
11 And white robes were given to each one of them. And it was said to them that they should rest yet for a little time, until both their fellow servants and their brothers (those about to be killed as they were ) should have their number made complete.

It is a guess, but if the world must go through 6 seals, 6 trumpets, and 6 vials or bowls, and the destruction of the One World Religion by the 10 kings, all in 7 years, then this slaughter of the Christians must happen pretty fast, thus the creation and rise of the One World Religion must also rise fast.

It is my belief that these martyrs, are from the murders after the rapture, as those before the rapture will have been resurrected at the rapture and would already have their white robes:

Rev 7:
9 After these things I looked, and lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, out of all nations and kindreds and people and tongues, stood before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palms in their hands.
13 And one of the elders answered, saying to me, Who are these who are arrayed in white robes, and from where do they come?
14 And I said to him, Sir, you know. And he said to me, These are the ones who came out of the great tribulation and have washed their robes, and have whitened them in the blood of the Lamb.
16 They will not hunger any more, nor thirst any more, nor will the sun light on them, nor any heat.
17 For the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will feed them and will lead them to the fountains of living waters. And God will wipe away all tears from their eyes.

And just because Revelation 7 comes after 6, does not mean they are in chronological order, it does not. As we see Mystery Babylon riding the anti-christ in Rev 17!

I think we should take note of Rev 6:9:

…I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held.

It does not state:

Rev 13:
15 And there was given to it to give a spirit to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast might both speak, and might cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed.

But we do see:

Rev 17:6 And I saw the woman drunk with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. And when I saw her, I marveled with a great marveling.

There is a distinction between these 2 kinds of martyrs and is brought forth more here:

Rev 20:4I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for the witness of Jesus and for the Word of God, and who had not worshiped the beast nor his image, nor had received his mark on their foreheads, nor in their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

Mystery Babylon or the One World Religion will hate the Bible and the witness of Jesus. It is for this they will kill Christians. The False Prophet, with the anti-christ will kill them for not worshiping him (the anti-christ) and for not taking his mark.

When the rapture takes place, and many Christians are left behind, these Christians will be put in a dilemma. Why were they not raptured? They must come to the conclusion, they did not have the extra oil (see here: Oil & the Holy Spirit), or the rapture was not from God and wasn’t really a rapture! They will believe a lie!

2 Thessalonians 2 
1 ¶ Now we beseech you, my brothers, with regard to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him,
8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the breath of His mouth and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming,
9 whose coming is according to the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
10 and with all deceit of unrighteousness in those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, so that they might be saved.
11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie,
12 so that all those who do not believe the truth, but delight in unrighteousness, might be condemned.

This is when the Latter Rain will occur. Many of these left behind Christians will repent and turn to God, but the door will be closed:

Matt 25:
10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came. And they who were ready went in with him to the marriage, and the door was shut.
11 Afterwards the other virgins came also, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.
12 But he answered and said, Truly I say to you, I do not know you.
13 Therefore watch, for you do not know either the day or the hour in which the Son of man comes.

I discuss the Latter Rain here:

The Latter Rain/Reign

Because these Christians were not ready, and did not have the extra oil, many will die for their faith. Some believe all will die, but I am not certain:

Matthew 24:13 But the one who endures to the end will be saved.

I discuss this more here:

Can People be Saved after the Rapture?

And so while a great many will repent and become the Tribulation Saints, many will fall from their faith and join Mystery Babylon. This is called the Great Apostasy and I discuss that here:

The Great Apostasy

I also talk about a 2nd interpretation of apostasy here:

Who is Babylon, the Anti-Christ, and the False Prophet?

As I have shared in other posts I believe the rapture takes place after Matt 24:8 and before Matt 24:9 as seen here:

8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
9 Then they will deliver you up to be afflicted and will kill you. And you will be hated of all nations for My name’s sake.
10 And then many will be offended, and will betray one another, and will hate one another.

Everything before verse 9 is called “The Beginning of Sorrows” which I believe is what we are in now!

But notice what scripture says in 9 & 10! People will betray one another and many will be killed! Another evidence this will happen quickly after the rapture!

After the rapture there will come a great division of those who are Christians, many will forsake Christianity and the Bible, and Rome will rise up and throw off all Christianity and become Mystery Babylon. Rome will come to power as in the days of the medieval times, and rulers of nations will heed her. Christianity and the Bible will be outlawed! Previous Christians who turned to Mystery Babylon will report those they know who have repented to Christ. And how will there be so much pointed faith and authority? Why will there be a lack of gray? The age of grace will have ended and it will become a time of miracles and signs. Look at what is next in Matt 24:11

11 And many false prophets will rise and deceive many.

So this is another evidence of the False Prophet being the leader of Mystery Babylon, but again we cannot be dogmatic on this.

I talk about the end of the age of grace here:

The Time of the Gentiles

But please make note I have changed my mind on the possibility of the timing of the rapture and these events, discussed on that page, and bring the new possibility here:

The Timing of the Rapture

Another interesting note here, showing the sign that the salt has left the Earth, and the Restrainer is gone is the next verse in Matt 24:

12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many will become cold.

And of coarse we come back to a verse mentioned above as next:

Matthew 24:13 But the one who endures to the end will be saved.

Mystery Babylon will come to fruition quickly after the rapture, and that means if the rapture is imminent, and I believe it is, that preparation must be taking place, thus why I am looking at the current Pope. And he is getting old, so if this is the man, it must come soon.

I take a look at the current Pope under these ideas here:

The False Prophet

Rome will throw off Catholicism and become a hybrid religion, and will gain political power in the earth. And just as Rome persecuted protestants in the medieval days, they will kill Christians again.

While Mystery Babylon will rise fast, it won’t last. The 10 kings don’t want to share power with Mystery Babylon. There is a conflict between Mystery Babylon and the anti-christ. Two I see!

First is the anti-christ wants all to worship him. And while Mystery Babylon will tolerate and work with the anti-christ, she is a mixture of religions and does not focus her attention on the anti-christ.

Second, Mystery Babylon will have political power, and the 10 kings want all power to be with the anti-christ, and delegated to them under him alone.

Mystery Babylon is a tool for the anti-christ to use to gain his power and authority, and will throw off Mystery Babylon in his arrogance and desire for power and worship.

It is my belief the pope, who already opposes scripture, will throw off any secret of such after the rapture and will embrace all religions unto himself to gain power, political and religiously. He will tap into the demonic, reportedly already having done so, to do signs and wonders. He already is a Jesuit and is involved in many evil secrets. Trained and ready, he will rise when the hour comes after the rapture to take hold of the vacancy left by the Restrainer (the church) but will find the anti-christ and switch his allegiances with him. As he finds an even greater demonic power, as satan will possess the anti-christ and rise from the dead.

Now, this is my belief and guess concerning the Pope, as we do not know who the anti-christ or the false prophet are. But we can be more certain of the the way of Mystery Babylon and the martyrs to come.

Once again, I admonish all to make themselves ready and miss all this at the rapture. The extra oil is being Born Again. Believe and pray something like this:

Dear Jesus,

I come to you, to offer my life, not only do I believe in You; in your crucifixion, and your resurrection; but I believe I died with you on the cross. My sin has been paid for, and I also have the resurrected life in me. I offer myself to you, to let You live through me. I will submit to your Holy Spirit to lead me into truth and away from sin. Lord, You are my Shepherd, and I will trust you to lead me to life eternal. Today, I not only call you Savior, but I make You Lord of my life.

In your Holy name I pray,
Amen


The Timing of the Rapture

January 21, 2019

Last night was one of those “Blood Moons” and some are saying it is the last of the prophetic blood moons, as it book ends the famous ones a few years ago.

But I have not ever been persuaded that these “blood moons” were of the significance many claim they are/were. Unlike the Rev 12 sign on Sept 23 of 2017 and the great American Eclipse shortly before that. Those 2 heavenly signs woke me up.

These blood moons do not properly correspond with those listed in scripture:

Revelation 6:
12 And when He had opened the sixth seal, I looked, and behold, there was a great earthquake. And the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became like blood.

We have not seen the great earthquake nor the sun turn black, and remember this is the 6th seal, and the rapture happens before the 1st!

These other “blood moons” may be precursors, but if so are minor signs, but there are other signs I am watching, and mostly Syria, Damascus, and Israel.

And while I spoke of the possibility, and even probability of the rapture occurring at the destruction of Damascus, or possibly the onslaught of the Ezek 38 war, now I am not so sure.

I discuss those possibilities here:

The Time of the Gentiles

As I study and meditate on this more I have my doubts, and feel the Holy Spirit or the Lord directing my “prophetic” opinion elsewhere.

I am now of the opinion, that Israel will provoke these nations into attacking her. And why would Israel make such a provocation, and what would that provocation be?

It is my belief, watching today’s events, Israel will continue to attack Iran’s presence in Syria, and first, and already started, is Syria’s negative response to this. Next will be Russia, as they have continues to tell Israel, “no more”.

So what would that trigger be? how about the destruction of Damascus?

Iran has spoken in the last day they are preparing to destroy Israel in 1 final war:

Iranian air chief: ‘We’re ready for the decisive war that will destroy Israel’

If Iran, with Syria’s help, does some deed bigger than normal, Israel will respond in kind and bigger. We don’t ask what will cause this to occur, but rather we should ask what is stopping such to occur?

America. We are the salt in this Earth, just as the church is the spiritual salt in the earth.

Matt 5:13 You are the salt of the earth…

America’s strong presence does stop violence from happening, because many evil nations know if they go to far, America will attack them. Israel also is kept in check from attacking her enemies, because she knows that those enemies are kept at bay because of America.

What if America becomes crippled? Then Iran will be glad to attack Israel. And such an attack would trigger Israel’s response to destroy Damascus, as Syria helps Iran with such an attack.

And when Damascus is made a ruinous heap, Russia will no longer tolerate Israel’s boldness in Syria. Added to the fact that Syria’s destruction would remove Russia’s potential for spoils of war. Their eyes with anger and greed will turn to Israel once America has been crippled.

America’s crippling is imminent. And it will most likely begin with the rapture. And afterwards more disasters, as has occurred in the last 2-3 years, and perhaps even a near civil war.

America is doomed, and it will begin with the rapture. The pieces are nearly aligned on the board for these events to take place. The fall of America is imminent.

Today I went through the book of Joel. I am quite certain most of chapters 1-2 are of the Ezekiel 38 war. And some have timed this event prophetically by the harvests listed there, spring and summer harvests.

If true, then the Ezek 38 war could happen this spring, and if it happens this spring, then the destruction of Damascus has to happen before that. And for that to happen, America’s fall has to happen before that.

This is no “Thus saith the Lord”. This is no prophecy. And I have not studied the harvests of Joel, myself. This is just my “prophetic” opinion.

But I believe the age of grace is about to end, and people need to be ready.

 


Can People be Saved after the Rapture?

January 16, 2019

There has been some discussion about this topic for years, but have seen very recently this discussed again, twice within a week. Seen here:

 

and here:

 

The 1st video is by Jack Hibbs, of whom I do subscribe to on YouTube, but only watch a few of his videos, as I am not a big fan, I do not usually find his teachings very instructional for me, nothing new or exciting. But once in awhile he has a decent to good video I would recommend, and this particular one is fine. Except the point he makes about being unable to be saved after the coming of the anti-christ (or after the rapture).

The 2nd video, by Amir Tsarfati from Behold Israel, is definitely a minister of whom I watch many of his videos. I highly recommend subscribing to his YouTube channel or follow him on Facebook, as his Middle East updates are nearly essential for the watchmen of today. Anyways, he speaks of the same message, that folks cannot be saved after the rapture.

If one does the math, that they believe in Tribulation Saints and do not believe people can be saved after the rapture, that these people are pointing toward a partial rapture. Yet they do not preach a partial rapture, and most people speak ill of it. And that is due to the fact most partial rapture teachers preach on works, of which I do not.

As far as I can tell, they cannot explain who the Tribulation Saints are. But if you read my website or blog, I easily explain who they are, and why they are left behind. As seen here:

Are You Prepared for the Blessed Hope?

or here:

Believing vs. Being Born Again

So what text is used for the idea of no salvation after the rapture? The one Jack Hibbs uses in his video is this:

2 Thessalonians 2
1 ¶ Now we beseech you, my brothers, with regard to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him,
3 ¶ Let not anyone deceive you by any means. For that Day shall not come unless there first comes a falling away, and the man of sin shall be 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, setting himself forth, that he is God.
8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the breath of His mouth and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming,
9 whose coming is according to the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
10 and with all deceit of unrighteousness in those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, so that they might be saved.
11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie,
12 so that all those who do not believe the truth, but delight in unrighteousness, might be condemned.

There are other texts people use, but this one, particularly verses 10b-12:

10 …because they did not receive the love of the truth, so that they might be saved.
11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie,
12 so that all those who do not believe the truth, but delight in unrighteousness, might be condemned.

These verses speak of people who “did not receive the love of the truth, so that they might be saved“, but if you look carefully it also says, “but delight in unrighteousness“.

Romans 2 says:

14 For when the nations, who do not have the Law, do by nature the things of the Law, these, not having the Law, are a law unto themselves;
15 who show the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and the thoughts between one another accusing or even excusing one another,

There are some, who know wickedness through their conscious and avoid it. Then there are those who are in cults. Mormons can be very morale, but serve a false christ. It is true many in false religions will turn to Spiritual Babylon, the One World Religion, but I believe if they did not follow wickedness, they can repent and be saved. Am I certain? I am not.

Therefore I give a similar warning as these men have done, and not put off salvation.

But I do believe that the Tribulation saints are not only the Left Behind Christians, but those within these types of people who repent.

Do I believe they all have to die? I do not. Because Jesus did say this:

Matthew 24:13 But the one who endures to the end will be saved.

Now some translations word it another way. But I am not dogmatic on this either. It is possible for all Christians to die! I know for a certainty many will and the anti-christ will be given authority to do so. One of the many reasons I believe in a pre-trib rapture! No promise of going through!

Rev 13:7 And it was given to it to war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given to it over every tribe and tongue and nation.

While not mentioned in these videos. I wish to address it here, is that some believe that the restrainer listed in scripture is the Holy Spirit, and if He leaves, then salvation is not possible, because you can’t get saved without the Holy Spirit.

The contested scripture is here:

2 Thess 2:6 And you know what is now restraining him, so that he may be revealed at the proper time. 7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work, but the one who now restrains it will continue until he is taken out of the way.

Most now believe it is the Church, and the hotly contested new idea is Michael the angel. But Jesus said the Church is the salt, and salt preserves and restrains from corruption.

Matt 5:13 You are the salt of the earth…

So, can people be saved after the rapture? I do not know. I believe it possible, but we cannot be certain. It is best to believe in Christ now. Those who believe and are not Born Again, will be here, and will make up part, if not all the Tribulation Saints.

So do not delay. Accept Him now. Start with a prayer like this:

Dear Jesus,

I come to you, to offer my life, not only do I believe in You; in your crucifixion, and your resurrection; but I believe I died with you on the cross. My sin has been paid for, and I also have the resurrected life in me. I offer myself to you, to let You live through me. I will submit to your Holy Spirit to lead me into truth and away from sin. Lord, You are my Shepherd, and I will trust you to lead me to life eternal. Today, I not only call you Savior, but I make You Lord of my life.

In your Holy name I pray,
Amen

Church of England introduces baptism-style ceremony for gender ‘transitions’

Jesus, the Firstborn

December 29, 2018

Col 1:15 who is the image of the invisible God, the First-born of all creation.

So what does Paul mean, when he says Jesus was the first born? Some cults believe Jesus was a created being, some even say He is the brother to Lucifer! All this is heresy!

But I would like to explore this question, and share what the Lord has revealed to me, I have published this before, and kept it as a possibility, and not a doctrine as seen here:

https://kingdomgospel.wordpress.com/2008/02/01/a-theory-or-revelation-on-the-trinity/

Last fall, 2017, my eyes were opened to the season we are in, that is the immanency of the rapture. Which I have also shared, I believe is the time for knowledge to increase, and therefore have put all scripture and teachings before Him, and have allowed God to correct me, which He has done. But more so, He has added to my understanding even more.

There are 2 specific teachings I have given over the years, which I have deemed very rare, and unheard of, at least by me, anywhere else. And this teaching here, is one of them.

So this has been in the back of my mind over the last year, but came to the forefront about a week ago when I was reading Colossians. Then the Holy Spirit was on me to revisit this teaching, now a few days later, here I am.

I am now nearly convinced this to be a true doctrine, and understand the consequences of declaring it so, if I do so. But am getting ahead of myself, so let’s get on with it.

Solomon said that nothing under the sun is new:

Ecclesiastes 1
9 ¶ That which has been is that which shall be; and that which has been done is that which shall be done; and there is nothing new under the sun.

Therefore anything on Earth is just a duplication of what God has done elsewhere, in heaven. Jesus also spoke about this when He said He has not done anything unless He has seen His Father do it:

John 5:19 …the Son can do nothing of Himself but what He sees the Father do. For whatever things He does, these also the Son does likewise.

This means that when Jesus was creating the world and took Adam’s rib out to make Eve, Jesus had seen the Father do something similar. I will return to this in a moment.

Some may wonder why I would claim Jesus is the Creator, believing the Father created all things. Let’s take a quick peek at that.

We will start at the 1st scripture I already shared in Colossians:

Col 1:15 who is the image of the invisible God, the First-born of all creation.
16 For all things were created in Him, the things in the heavens, and the things on the earth, the visible and the invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers, all things were created through Him and for Him.

The point is clarified further here:

Hebrews 1:2 has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, by whom also He made the worlds,

So we can see through scripture the Father, created all things through Christ Jesus.

Now back to the teaching, I wish to address the nature of humanity to make a point. Man is triune:

1 Thessalonians 5
23 ¶ And may the God of peace Himself sanctify you, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blamelessly at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Now if we are triune, then God must be as well:

Gen 1:26: And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness…

Now imagine God having 3 parts within Himself like man, but decided to give each part His own life:

John 5:
26: For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself;

And thus God removed Jesus from Himself, as an example to Jesus to remove a rib from Adam to make Eve. Thus pulling Jesus out of Himself, Jesus became the First Born.

He is NOT a created being, He eternally existed as God part of God, I am not taking away any fundamental nature of Christ here, nor adding any new nature.

Thus before Jesus was taken out of God to have His own person, He was in God. Now imagine if all 3 parts of you were separated and had their own life. Yet all 3 would still be you!

This teaching does not take away from Jesus His divinity, in any of the time frame of God’s existence (which is eternal) nor does it take away from His eternal nature as He existed in unity in God before the separation.

God is doing something similar within Christians now!

Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is living and powerful and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing apart of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

The words “dividing apart” in Heb 4:12 is the Greek word “merismos”. The word of God separates the soul and spirit, the two are so closely entangled that most of the church doesn’t even know the difference!

Thus I recently discussed this, because of the erroneous teaching about different gospels for the Gentiles and Jews here:

Are Some Books of the Bible not for the Church?

And I discuss in greater detail how the soul is saved differently from the spirit here:

The Salvation of the Soul

But I don’t wish to chase that rabbit trail here. The point I wish to make, is that Christians are undergoing a separation of their soul and spirit, if they allow it, by the word of God.

I am convinced God, “merismosed” Himself, and separated Himself into separate beings, otherwise the taking of the rib from Adam, to make Eve, was new under the sun, and then Ecc 1:9 is not true! To me scripture is all true, or none is. All or nothing, no picking and choosing.

Now I know, what I am about to share is not scripture, and is circumstantial evidence at best, but here it is:

Jesse Duplantis, claims to have visited heaven, saw Jesus Christ and God the Father as separate entities, and Jesus looking like a man, who could walk in and out of God the Father. There was a whooshing sound when Jesus walked out of the light, which came from the power of God.

I enjoy Jesse’s story and believe him, but I do doubt some of his interpretations of what he saw, and prefer the story and character of Oden Hetrick, as Jesse is a bit too flashy for my tastes. I discuss this more at length here:

Near Death Experiences (NDE’s) & Visions

And Oden Hetrick speaks of similar things, even on this topic! But I am not making any doctrine based upon any man’s visions, but on scripture alone.
