Lessons Worth Re-Learning

This is my journey that the LORD Jesus Christ has taken me on in my life. So don't be surprised, this is a Christian site written by a Christian. Most of us have lived our Christian lives such that if we bloomed where we were planted, we'd be mushrooms in a cave! If you would like to subscribe to this blog, please send me an e-mail.

I am just like everyone else: I make it one day at a time with a little bit of humor. The Word of God is a fire in my heart that burns all the way down to my bones and I cannot hold it back. Jeremiah 20:9

My Tribulation Vision

When GOD sent the plagues on Egypt, the Hebrews were unaffected. The plagues were GOD's judgement on the Egyptians not the Hebrews. GOD sent me a vision of the last days where through it all, GOD's people were unaffected by the judgements sent to earth. The differences were obvious. People were coming to us for answers, for medical aid, and for food. They received the gospel, they received healings, and the greatest revival of all time happened.  Yes, there were dangers from men deceived by satan, many Christians will be martyred. But if we stand strong, living in praise and worship and walking in the Holy Spirit of GOD as faithful servants of the Living GOD, we will save a great multitude!

2 Peter 3:9  (ESV)
    The LORD is not slow to fulfill His promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.

Matthew 16:25  (ESV)
     For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.

Deuteronomy 31:6  (ESV)
    "Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the LORD your GOD who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you."

Philippians 3:20  (ESV)
    But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.

Psalm 91 (ESV)
My Refuge and My Fortress

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
    will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say to the LORD, “My refuge and my fortress,
    my GOD, in whom I trust.”

For He will deliver you from the snare of the fowler
    and from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover you with His pinions,
    and under His wings you will find refuge;
    His faithfulness is a shield and buckler.
You will not fear the terror of the night,
    nor the arrow that flies by day,
nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness,
    nor the destruction that wastes at noonday.

A thousand may fall at your side,
    ten thousand at your right hand,
    but it will not come near you.
You will only look with your eyes
    and see the recompense of the wicked.

Because you have made the LORD your dwelling place-
    the Most High, who is my refuge-
no evil shall be allowed to befall you,
    no plague come near your tent.

For He will command His angels concerning you
    to guard you in all your ways.
On their hands they will bear you up,
    lest you strike your foot against a stone.
You will tread on the lion and the adder;
    the young lion and the serpent you will trample underfoot.

“Because he holds fast to Me in love, I will deliver him;
    I will protect him, because he knows My Name.
When he calls to Me, I will answer him;
    I will be with him in trouble;
    I will rescue him and honor him.
With long life I will satisfy him
    and show him My salvation.”

 1 Corinthians 15:51-52  (ESV)

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

Matthew 24:29-31  (ESV)
The Coming of the Son of Man

     “Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then will appear in heaven the sign of the Son of Man, 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. And He will send out His angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other."

Matthew 24:36-51  (ESV)
No One Knows That Day and Hour

     “But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only. For as were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, and they were unaware until the flood came and swept them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. Then two men will be in the field; one will be taken and one left. Two women will be grinding at the mill; one will be taken and one left. Therefore, stay awake, for you do not know on what day your Lord is coming. But know this, that if the master of the house had known in what part of the night the thief was coming, he would have stayed awake and would not have let his house be broken into. Therefore you also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.

    “Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom his master has set over his household, to give them their food at the proper time? Blessed is that servant whom his master will find so doing when he comes. Truly, I say to you, he will set him over all his possessions. But if that wicked servant says to himself, ‘My master is delayed,’ and begins to beat his fellow servants and eats and drinks with drunkards, the master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he does not know and will cut him in pieces and put him with the hypocrites. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth."

Mark 13:24-27  (ESV)
The Coming of the Son of Man

    “But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will be falling from heaven, and the powers in the heavens will be shaken. And then they will see the Son of Man coming in clouds with great power and glory. And then He will send out the angels and gather His elect from the four winds, from the ends of the earth to the ends of heaven."

Mark 13:32-37  (ESV)
No One Knows That Day or Hour

     “But concerning that day or that hour, no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. Be on guard, keep awake. For you do not know when the time will come. It is like a man going on a journey, when he leaves home and puts his servants in charge, each with his work, and commands the doorkeeper to stay awake.Therefore stay awake-for you do not know when the master of the house will come, in the evening, or at midnight, or when the rooster crows, or in the morning-lest he come suddenly and find you asleep. And what I say to you I say to all: Stay awake.”

I feel the need to speak up because I think the pre-tribulation rapture teaching is not scriptural. I think it appeals to the self-preservation of our flesh nature and avoidance of painful and unpleasant things and events. "Great! Let's convert to Christianity because if we do we will avoid the tribulation!" Don't you think those 6 million Jews would have preferred to avoid the Holocaust? Or the early Christians would have preferred to avoid the lion's dens?

The Father loves every last person who has ever been conceived. He is not in a hurry to end all things because He wants everyone to have a chance at repentance.

But the clock is ticking. The Jewish year 5777 will begin on October 3rd this year, 2016. Why is that important? We only have 223 years left until The LORD's Sabbath starts. That is the Millenial reign of Christ.

We need to wake up, study the scriptures, and reach every soul on this earth with the truth of GOD. We need to be trustworthy and productive servants BEFORE He returns. This is the eleventh hour. It may be 11:59 for all we know and we are recruiting watered-down Christians who are not prepared for what lies ahead.

Revelation 14:9-13  (ESV)

    And another angel, a third, followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and its image and receives a mark on his forehead or on his hand, he also will drink the wine of God's wrath, poured full strength into the cup of his anger, and he will be tormented with fire and sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever, and they have no rest, day or night, these worshipers of the beast and its image, and whoever receives the mark of its name.”

Here is a call for the endurance of the saints, those who keep the commandments of God and their faith in Jesus.

And I heard a voice from heaven saying, “Write this: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.” “Blessed indeed,” says the Spirit, “that they may rest from their labors, for their deeds follow them!”

All of GOD's judgements have been for GOD's enemies, the wicked, and the unbeliever. Not His children. However, if you know the truth and refuse to abide by it you will also have your place in the second death. Because you are a 'hypocrite'. That is why it is so important to study your bible and weigh your church doctrine against GOD's Word. Get the false teachings out of yor church and return to the truth that Jesus taught. Jesus never intended for 40,000+ denominations! Develop a relationship with Him and depend on Him for your wisdom. That is the 'secret place' spoken of in Psalm 91, abiding in the Presence of GOD!
