Endurance And What It Means In The Bible.

posted by PrayerWarrior

Matthew 24:4 And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. 6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places.

8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. 9 “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. 10 And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. 11 Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. 12 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. 13 But he who endures to the end shall be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.

Wars rumors of wars, pestilence, famines, earthquakes in diverse place, All coming to pass before the end, it is not yet! This is all just the beginning of sorrows folks. The great tribulation will not come till after all of this.

Now let’s look at the word endure and what that means, because so many just seem to skip right past this word and yet it is prominently posted here and there in the word. He who endures till the end shall be saved. What is the end of anything but the end? Really why is the end called the end? Because there is nothing more to happen after the end. Jesus says he comes after the tribulation.

Anyway Endure = 1. to hold out against; sustain without impairment or yielding; undergo: 2. to bear without resistance or with patience; tolerate: 3. to continue to exist; lasts: Ok so let’s say it another way, Jesus said he who holds out, he who sustains without yielding,he who tolerates, who bears without resistance, he who continues to exist,he who lasts, till the end shall be saved! We see here endure means to continue to exist, to hold out against and not give in, under goes persecution till the end will be saved. There is no mistaking anything here we are to do all that till the very end.

Luke 21:19 By your patient endurance gain your souls. Gain here means keep.Heb 3:14 For we are made partakers of Christ, if we behold the beginning of our confidence be steadfast unto the end; Heb 10:23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;).In Acts14:22 we are exhorted to remain in the faith or endure, Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.
See that through out the word we are told we must through much tribulation enter the kingdom.

Let’s go further on into Matt 24.
The Great Tribulation
15 “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place” (whoever reads, let him understand), 16 “then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. 17 Let him who is on the housetop not go down to take anything out of his house. 18 And let him who is in the field not go back to get his clothes. 19 But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! 20 And pray that your flight may not be in winter or on the Sabbath. 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. 22 And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened.

The great tribulation according to Jesus the, Lord our God, our savior our everything, who knows better than any man anywhere, what He is talking about says, when the abomination that creates desolation is seen, then only then does the great tribulation begin. The great tribulation is only 3.5 years. It is not for 7 years, the treaty that brings in the 3rd temple, and brings back sacrifices for the Jews which will be in Jerusalem. At that 7 year half way point there is war in heaven, satan comes down and then really that is when all hell breaks loose.

He who lets in Thessalonians, I do honestly believe it is Micheal who is holding back evil till that time. It cannot be the Holy Spirit for no man can be saved except the Holy Spirit be there to call out to us. The holy Spirit convicts us of our guilt and calls us to repentance, no man could be saved if the Holy Spirit is not here any longer. And the bible tells us in Daniel, that many will be purified and their garments made white in the tribulation trial by fire so to speak.

This is why I believe it is Micheal who is holding back the evil, “At that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.” Daniel 12:1. We know also Micheal and the angels with him fight against satan and his minions in Heaven.

Rev 12:7 And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought, 8 but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer. 9 So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

Some say this occurred back in the beginning, but that is not true, because think about it when Job was tempted over and over to turn against god everything that could go wrong was allowed by God through satan to be done to Job. He has been accusing us before God since the start, and is allowed to do so for now because the evil is being held back. It is being held in check, until Micheal and his angels and satan and his, have war. Then and only then can satan be ejected and then evil is full force on the earth. I believe this occurs simultaneously with the abomination of desolation.

He satan is coming to make war with the children of God the saints, why would he fight against his own people? Those who do not even know they are satans own children. They are the liars and the immoral and idolaters and all manner of sinners, and they belong to their father satan. So many people say no I am not satans child, but neither am I God’s. Never realizing that you are either one or the other. There is no such thing as any other way, it is choose God or choose satan, these are the only two choices. There is no other option available.

There are two more parts that I will be writing that has to do with this subject but different. The Holy Spirit and all about Him. And why we must go through the tribulation. The Lord has been working these in me.

Blessings and Merry Christmas to you all!!
Love in Christ, Tammy
