The Rapture Force

The Word is a Light, and cuts like a Sword thru the Darkness

I cannot fathom how it is that people cannot, through the entire scriptures of the day of the Lord, or the day of Jesus Wrath, or the day of wrath, see what is plainly stated in the word. What it will all look like. My hope in this article is to make it clear to all of you, as it is to myself, what that day will look like. I read the word and see so clearly what the day of the Lord will be, and that it is one day only. It is His wrath that He has stored up since He last destroyed the earth and left a mere eight people to begin it over.

I have seen many claim that the wrath of God is the entire 7 years of tribulation, no sorry it is not. I have seen people state it is the last 3.5 years of the tribulation period, no it is not! People claim it is the trumpets and vials in the book of Revelation, because in Chapter 6 it states the nations were angry and your wrath has come, but it is ignored that in the trumpets and vials at the end of those two sets of “JUDGMENTS” it says it again, your wrath has come. So do they believe that God’s wrath comes three times?

Let’s look at those verses that say this very important set of words. Maybe we can glean together what He means by this all. Rev 6:16-17 They told the mountains and the rocks, “Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him who sits on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb, 17 for the great day of his wrath has come; and who is able to stand?” So what are the people of earth talking about here? And does Jesus come show His angry face to the inhabitants of the earth only to take his face back up, reclose the sky, and relight the sun and moon? But then come back at the 7th trumpet, then go back and then come back at the 7th vial? Makes no sense right?

Now look at Rev 11:18 but pay very close attention here as it adds something new. The nations were angry, and your wrath came, as did the time for the dead to be judged, and to give your bondservants the prophets, their reward, as well as to the saints, and those who fear your name, to the small and the great; and to destroy those who destroy the earth.” Wow wait a minute here say what? The dead to be judged? But isn’t that the resurrection? But isn’t that when Jesus comes back to rapture us, as people call it? The dead in Christ rise first then we which are alive and remain shall be changed in a moment in the twinkling of an eye! YES!!

I need also to point out something here. The pre tribulation people as well as the pre wrath crowd ignore the fact that Jesus and Paul said at the last trump he comes. Clearly here at the last trumpet Jesus comes, He raises the dead and judges them. So to say that the trumpets are God’s wrath, is way off base. As well the pre tribbers claim the 7th or last trumpet is going to occur at the feast of trumpets. Hmmmm so I guess God maybe had better go speak to these men and get His story right, they seem to know better than He does, what His word means!

Now look at Revelation 15:1 some say God’s wrath is completed, some say finished King James says it right on this verse. And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvellous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God. So His wrath is not done, not over with, but filled up. The Holy Spirit says to my heart that what this means is His wrath has come to it’s boiling over point. Jesus comes in wrath, not before the wrath of God is filled up, but when it has come to it’s fullness, then it boils over. That my friends is Armageddon, that occurs in the valley of Megidoo. That is where the sword that comes out of the mouth of Jesus is used to fillet men where they stand.

I know this can be quite confusing! As I was writing this I was sitting here going, oh but wait Lord, am I getting this wrong? But He said to my heart read on child, and I will give you understanding. It speaks of the wrath being poured out of the bowls or vials depending on the version you read, but then it says that these are plagues, and as you read other verses in the bible of what the great and terrible day of the Lord will look like, then you can fully appreciate that indeed these are plagues, and or judgment, not His wrath poured out. The judgments are Gods anger for sure, but not the completion of His wrath.

These plagues are meant to make men realize that God is God and to repent, but a couple verses of chptr 16 shows men repented not of their sin. Verses 9 and 11 speak of the men blaspheming God and not repenting of their deeds. After God has the angel pour out the 7th vial He then pours out wrath on Great Babylon who has had the whole earth drink from her cup of fornication. Look at verse 15 of chapter 16 of Revelation. This verse here the Lord pretty nearly smacked me in the face with it LOL. He said now see this here, and realize you are all still there on earth.

15 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. So He (Jesus) has not come as of yet. We are told a few times he comes as a thief, and those who think he has come as a thief silently, secretly, are sadly deeply mistaken. Because how many times does He come like a thief only to come as a thief again? It does not mean in secret nor in silence, it means unanounced before hand. A thief does not tell when he will rob a house, or you would be ready for him, and his task would be foiled. Jesus says I come when no man knows the day or the hour. I come without advance warning. I come when you least expect me.

The Lord in Revelation chapter one no less, says every eye shall see His coming. We are going to hear it as well. There is the Angel in the heavens shouting, there is the 7th trumpet, there is the ripping away of the sky or the heavens that rolls up like a scroll. That dear friends, is going to sound like something you never imagined you would ever hear. Then we see Him in His anger for those evil doers who repent not of their deeds. We all of us will not be able to stand under the onslaught of His anger and wrath that He appears with. Only when we have become changed in that blink of an eye will we then be taken up to meet him and those who had been reunited with their bodies in the heavenlies.

As I was praying this morning over this article, that I began a week ago, The Lord hit me with such a revelation as to almost knock me off my feet with it. I actually let out a little scream of wonder at it, and marveled that no one has ever thought of this before. My goodness it is so clear! But I will make you all wait as I show what it will look like, the day of God’s wrath, and then when we ask what it wont look like, is the spot that God slapped this amazing revelation on me. God my friends and family, and strangers alike, is so amazingly awesome. He gives us what we need when we need it and understanding when we seek to know it, flows into us. Sometimes that Revelation is a calmly placed word, sometimes it has the power to knock you off your feet. But always it is a blessing.

Now let’s look at these verses, no one ever seems to look at, as to what God’s fury and wrath will look like. “For the great day of His wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?” (Rev. 6: 17.) Okay this one the pre wrath rapture team speaks of as God’s wrath coming, and though they are partially right they are also wrong due to the fact that they believe that the trumpets and vials are God’s wrath because of that entire verse. Because it says now His great wrath has come, they say oh okay so the trumpets and vials are the wrath, because they come after this. But truly it is not that, and my hope is to show in another piece to this with this new revelation, how we know that they are not separate, and they do not occur chronologically.

But look who can stand in the day of His wrath is my point here. No one will be able to stand in the day of the onslaught of His anger, His very wrath. “The wicked are overthrown. and are not: but the house of the righteous shall stand” (Prov. 12:7) So when we see this particular phrase used in the bible before, he was then he was not for the Lord took him away, Gen 5:24. That was speaking of Enoch. We know when the word speaks of he was not, it means their gone. in this case however God did not take them to be in heaven with Him, He kills them. I will show this clearly as we move along.

Now look here again in Revelation at the last trumpet His wrath is mentioned again. “And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants, the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy (corrupt) the earth” (Rev. 11:18).So hmmm now the wrath is coming again? After the supposed wrath of the 7 trumpets His wrath comes again in the form of the vials? Or could it be another description of the judgments of God? Or is it just a deeper description from the seals?

In Revelation 15 we see the 7 angels being handed the 7 last PLAGUES, and it says something here that always caught my attention once I stopped believing the fairy tale of a pre-tribulation rapture. In verse one alone, is where I received a great understanding that the vials are not the wrath of God, as people think they are. But that with the pouring out of these vials, the wrath of God would come to it’s completeness. Like the straw that broke the camels back so to speak. He has poured out judgment after judgment upon the men of earth, and rather than realizing He is there, which they have no way of denying He exists at this point, instead of coming to Him and repenting, they are actually now openly blaspheming Him. Thus Now His wrath, with these last seven plagues comes to it’s fullness He is ready to explode. As with all past prophecies John’s is no different, they move forward and back and then forward and back, to complete a picture.

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. Also the word here for wrath is not Orge but instead Thymos. There is a distinction between the word Thymos and Orge. Orge is wrath fully and completely wrath, but Thymos is anger. The translators played a game with words too often to even count, and therefore have made it hard to make a distinction between words unless you do a Greek study of it. Like the word church was never used, that word is Ekklesia which means chosen or elect of God. It was used to describe the Israelites in the OT, and is supposed to be used in the New Testament, at least this is what a study I did one day has shown me. I love words and word studies is one of the things I do best.

Now I want to go to the old testament and do a nice search there of what God’s wrath looked like to those who were given visions of it. “At his wrath the earth shall tremble, and the nations shall not be able to abide his indignation” (Jer. 10:10). I am getting a clear picture here myself with also Jesus words in Matthew 24:29-31 He describes everything that is in seal 6 trumpet 7 and vial 7. I personally see, and am quite sure, that the half hour of silence at seal 7, is the rapture, the taking up of the saints. “Who shall stand when he appeareth?” (Mal. 3:2).

“The mountains quake at him, and the hills melt, and the earth is burned at his presence, yea, the world, and all that dwell therein. Who can stand before his indignation? and who can abide in the fierceness of his anger? His fury is poured out like fire, and the rocks are thrown down by him. The Lord is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him. But with an overrunning flood he will make an utter end of the place thereof, and darkness shall pursue his enemies” (Nah. 1:5-8). Now we’re getting somewhere. Hmmm great melting heat I have seen a few people say that God uses a nuke LOL. What need has God of a man made weapon of mass destruction, when a word spoken is enough to destroy everything He ever created? People try so hard to ascribe manly characteristics to God, but God is so much bigger than mankind. He is so much more than we can even come close to understanding.

Job as well knew about the day of wrath coming and this is what he said. “that thou wouldest hide me in the grave, that thou wouldest keep me secret, until thy wrath be past, that thou wouldest appoint me a set time, and remember me!” (Job 14:13). 2 Before the decree is issued, Or the day passes like chaff, Before the Lord’s fierce anger comes upon you, Before the day of the Lord’s anger comes upon you! 3 Seek the Lord, all you meek of the earth, Who have upheld His justice. Seek righteousness, seek humility. It may be that you will be hidden in the day of the Lord’s anger.(Zeph 2:2-3). We can clearly see no one wants to be in the DAY OF THE LORDS WRATH!

Zeph 1:14-15,18 “The great day of the Lord is near–near and coming quickly. Listen! The cry on the day of the Lord will be bitter… That day will be a day of wrath, a day of distress and anguish… In the fire of his jealousy the whole world will be consumed, for he will make a sudden end of all who live in the earth.” Isa 66:15-16 “See, the Lord is coming with fire, and his chariots are like a whirlwind; he will bring down his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire. For with fire and with his sword the Lord will execute judgment upon all men, and many will be those slain by the Lord… Ps 69:24 Pour out your wrath on them, let your fierce anger overtake them. Ps 76:10 Surely your wrath against men brings you praise, and the survivors of your wrath are restrained.

Ah so here we see there will be survivors. Totally different article, but the point needs to be made, there are suvivors the world over after the wrath is poured out. Those who did not take the mark, and those who did not come to the valley of Megiddo to fight against the Lord in the final battle, the one called Armageddon. That is when Jesus comes and executes the wrath of God. It is also called by the apostle Paul the day of Christ. Why would Paul say this? Because Jesus is God was God and is coming to execute the wrath of God. He comes with flames and anger, and with His sword, with which He will fillet men where they stand with just the words out of His mouth. Paul speaks of it being Jesus in many places, I will simply put them down without writing them all out. Please go study them on your own. I may put them in here later we shall see how the Lord takes this and moves it. 1 Corinthians 1.8, 3.13, 5.5; 2 Corinthians 1.14; Philippians 1.6, 10, 2.16; 2 Timothy 1.18, 4.8.

Many people do not understand what the goat and sheep judgement is. It is the survivors, those on earth who for some reason, did not take the mark of the beast and survived all the evil turmoil upon the earth, in those times. All people left alive on the earth who did not come to the battle of Armageddon, will then come to Jerusalem and be judged. Some will be thrown into hell and some will come into the kingdom to live with the Lord, and we who are immortal human beings, who are kings and priests, over some of these very people at this judgment of Christ. For some reason people just cannot wrap their head around there being people alive after the fiery judgment at the battle of Armageddon, or the day of the Lord, or the day of His wrath. But there are!

They say it makes no sense at all, how can anyone survive fire brought upon the earth. But isn’t the God of the bible, the Only God there is, Isn’t He big enough fortuitous enough, to send that fire where He wills and to protect those whom He wants to protect? People make God so small, they box Him in to their own idea of who He is. God does not fit in your boxes. He is who He is, rather you accept Him for the truth of who He is, or not. God is just huge and who can truly know Him? Through out our studies of His word we get glimpses of who He is and how large He is, but never will we know fully who He is! He is so multifaceted that even a diamond and all it’s facets cannot compare to how magnificent the Lord our God is. The depths and lengths of Him and the Love will never truly be plumbed. That dear friends is exactly as He likes it.

Moving forward! In Isaiah 13:6-13 we see, Wail, for the day of the Lord is at hand! It will come as destruction from the Almighty. Therefore all hands will be limp, every man’s heart will melt, and they will be afraid. Pangs and sorrows will take hold of them; they will be in pain as a woman in childbirth; they will be amazed at one another; their faces will be like flames. Behold, the day of the Lord comes, cruel, with both wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate; and He will destroy its sinners from it. For the stars of heaven and their constellations will not give their light; the sun will be darkened in its going forth, and the moon will not cause its light to shine. “I will punish the world for its evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; I will halt the arrogance of the proud, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible. I will make a mortal more rare than fine gold, a man more than the golden wedge of Ophir. Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth will move out of her place, in the wrath of the Lord of hosts and in the day of His fierce anger.”

Let’s look together at Zechariah chapter 14. this is such a huge revelation at the plans on that DAY! The whole of this chapter describes this one day event in great detail. So forgive me for the space this will take but it must be written out completely to get this divine revelation of that day. 14 Behold, the day of the Lord is coming, And your spoil will be divided in your midst. 2 For I will gather all the nations to battle against Jerusalem; The city shall be taken,
The houses rifled, And the women ravished. Half of the city shall go into captivity, but the remnant of the people shall not be cut off from the city.
3 Then the Lord will go forth and fight against those nations, as He fights in the day of battle.

Look too, the remnant of the people shall not be cut off from the city. So here we see there are a remnant alive, and these will not be cut off from the city. 4 And in that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, Which faces Jerusalem on the east. And the Mount of Olives shall be split in two, from east to west, making a very large valley; half of the mountain shall move toward the north and half of it toward the south. 5 Then you shall flee through My mountain valley, for the mountain valley shall reach to Azal. Yes, you shall flee as you fled from the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah. Thus the Lord my God will come, and all the saints with You.

The saints with Him, so we have been taken up, as He revealed Himself in the heavens the angel shouts, reap for the earth is ripe for reaping, Rev 14 then He sends out, just like he said, in Matthew 24 His angels to gather together from the four corners of the earth and heavens, His own. First the dead in Christ, get reunited with their bodies, then we which are alive and remain, get taken up by the angels, after which we have been changed in the blink of an eye, from mortals to incorruptible immortals. Per 1 Cor 15:51-52. Carrying on in Zechariah, verse 6 It shall come to pass in that day that there will be no light; the lights will diminish. 7 It shall be one day which is known to the Lord—Neither day nor night. But at evening time it shall happen that it will be light. Look at that one day only yet people all the time trick themselves into believing the day of the Lord is a 3.5 year period, and or a 7 year period. It is clear what the Lord is saying here ONE DAY!

The next few verses I will skip over, due to the fact that these are what is going on in the Millennial kingdom. Now onto verses 12 to 15. 12 And this shall be the plague with which the Lord will strike all the people who fought against Jerusalem: Their flesh shall dissolve while they stand on their feet, their eyes shall dissolve in their sockets, and their tongues shall dissolve in their mouths. 13 It shall come to pass in that day that a great panic from the Lord will be among them. Everyone will seize the hand of his neighbor, and raise his hand against his neighbor’s hand; 14 Judah also will fight at Jerusalem. and the wealth of all the surrounding nations Shall be gathered together: Gold, silver, and apparel in great abundance. 15 Such also shall be the plague on the horse and the mule, on the camel and the donkey, and on all the cattle that will be in those camps. So shall this plague be.

This my family in the Lord, is what the Lord’s wrath looks like! This is all consuming fire. This is men being filleted by the double edged sword that proceeds out of the mouth of Jesus. This is the Word of God! This is the Lord executing His own Wrath! Let’s see what it looks like elsewhere in the New testament we see in Revelation chapter 14 again, v20 And the wine press was trampled outside the city, and blood came out of the wine press, up to the horses’ bridles, for one thousand six hundred furlongs. this is Jesus treading the wine press. Let’s look also at Isaiah 63 verses 1-6.

Isaiah 63 Who is this that cometh from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah? this that is glorious in his apparel, travelling in the greatness of his strength? I that speak in righteousness, mighty to save. 2 Wherefore art thou red in thine apparel, and thy garments like him that treadeth in the winefat? 3 I have trodden the winepress alone; and of the people there was none with me: for I will tread them in mine anger, and trample them in my fury; and their blood shall be sprinkled upon my garments, and I will stain all my raiment. 4 For the day of vengeance is in mine heart, and the year of my redeemed is come. 5 And I looked, and there was none to help; and I wondered that there was none to uphold: therefore mine own arm brought salvation unto me; and my fury, it upheld me. 6 And I will tread down the people in mine anger, and make them drunk in my fury, and I will bring down their strength to the earth.

The Lord Himself says He Himself will tread the wine press, no on else He Himself, no angel no Human will help Him He will do this alone. One day and only one day! Isaiah 34 v 8 also says 8 For it is the day of the Lord’s vengeance, and the year of recompenses for the controversy of Zion. Isa 35:4 Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompence; he will come and save you. I am just trying to make clear to you all, that the Lord Himself is the one who pours out wrath. The one who does all of the day of the Lord, alone. Now when doing all of this and praying, I asked the Lord so what does your day of vengeance look like? He said why don’t you ask me what it does not look like.

The tribulation is not God’s wrath! Let me help you to see something that is just so clear to be seen, but so many misunderstand. Angels do not pour out God’s wrath. Jesus does! But in Revelation while we see Jesus opening the seals, The angels are given the trumpets and the vials. While it says in triplicate that your wrath has come, you have to really study to get that understanding The seals are Jesus introduction to the judgment, the trumpets have always been warning, and the vial is the consummation of the judgment, or the completion. Wrath is so much more scary than the judgments, because it is going to be seen across the whole world at one time!

It is time to look at Revelation chapter 16 and see His the great day of the Lord mentioned. Look at 16:1 from the Waymouth bible calls it judgment not wrath. Also other translations say judgments, some say anger. As I said earlier anger is not wrath in Greek they are two different words Thymos and Orge. But I am specifically looking for the wrath coming in these verses of chptr 16. Verse 7 has the angel telling the Lord these judgments are right.7 And I heard another from the altar saying, “Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are Your judgments.” So the angels who pour out these vials know it is God’s anger. Verse 9 also calls these plagues. 9 And men were scorched with great heat, and they blasphemed the name of God who has power over these plagues; and they did not repent and give Him glory.

Look at verse 14 we need to see something here, it is mentioned the great day of the Lord. 14 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that (great day of God Almighty). 15 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. Again here is Jesus saying He comes as a thief. He says in Rev 3:3 Rev 16:15 and then all over the NT we see Christ saying watch I come quickly and the disciples telling us he comes as a thief. If he came as a thief already then why would He say at the second to the last vial being poured out, I come as a thief? Now at the 7th vial we see the angel saying it is done! The angels job is done. But look here comes the wrath.

In verse 14 of chp 16 we see that the vial is poured out to dry up the river Euphrates so that the way of the kings from the east for the great battle, the day of God Almighty. This is the only mention of the day of the Lord in these sets of verses but read for yourselves and see the angels themselves over and over again call these judgments, not His wrath. They also call them plagues. So honestly it is a case of mistaken words used for anger rather than wrath. In Chapter 15 also it goes back and forth between plagues judgments and wrath.

This is what the Lord said to me when I was praying, Father show me what your wrath looks like in the word? After pouring out the verses into my heart that I have read over the years, and bringing them to my remembrance, He then spoke to me and said, ask me what my wrath does not look like! I said yeah Lord what doesn’t it look like? He said it does not look like angels pouring it out, which they are doing with the judgments. I the Lord will have My vengeance Myself! I will repay. Romans 12:19 Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord. But the wrath of God is not scary for us who are His own. God’s wrath is a reaction. It is a reaction to everything that contradicts His good, loving and just character.

God’s wrath is an expression of His love. God is love, so when He acts wrathfully, He acts in accordance with His loving nature. The wrath of God is His love in action. This is why you never need fear His wrath. 1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. By this time we will be that perfect blemish free, wrinkle free bride, that God will give to His son. We will have been through so much turmoil tribulation and trial that we will have been tried by the fire and not found wanting. In 1 Peter 4:1 For as much then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin; We will have suffered enough that we are made perfect by it. Hallelujah!

Also I want to help you see something quite amazing. The Lord sits as a refiner of silver in the OT it says this. The refiner of silver and gold knows his metal is ready because he sees his own reflection looking back at him. The Lord when He looks upon this earth and sees His own reflection looking back at Him then, will end it all. It speaks of this in Zechariah and Malachi. Isaiah and Daniel speak of trying us in the furnace of affliction, we are to be tried by fire people. We need to have the dross and the worthless unfruitful things drawn off the top, that much heat or pressure brings out of us. The tribulation is to try men and see how much they will take in this life, to have eternity with the Lord. He reads hearts and knows us better than we know ourselves. Tribulation shows us who we are and how abiding our love is of the Lord and how enduring it is. He wants bought up sold out people for eternity. Those who love Him above anyone or anything, even their own lives.

whoever loves their life will lose it and whoever loses their life will find it, Matt 10:39. And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved. Matt 10:22, Matt 24:13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. Time and again we see this admonition, that whoever endures till the end, the same shall be saved. He is coming and His reward is with Him and we are truly redeemed when He comes back. He knows who is staying with Him and who is not going to. Are you one who will remain in Him no matter what occurs? No matter how much you must suffer? No people this is not gloom and doom this is hope. What can we not achieve being in Christ? We can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens us, Phil 4.

What I find so heartbreaking is that so many cannot fathom suffering for this wonderful eternal bliss that is offered us. They cannot fathom let alone prepare themselves for the hell that is coming upon this earth, from satan and his minions, who will be as in the days of Noah, walking among us. People do not read nor prepare for what is coming. They fool themselves with this fake good news that Christ is coming for them before any of the evil is completely let loose upon this earth. It does not for them, have an ounce of reality in it. When they are standing in it, they’re going to be so frozen with dread and fear they will be immobilized and will be so shocked they will just go with the flow. This is why I say oh yes it is a salvation iussue. Pre tribulation rapture when it does not occur, and have no doubts, it is not happening like that, the word is very clear on this score, people will actually accuse God of lying to them.

There is already a huge apostasy happening, all over the place and it is getting easier and easier to see. But there is an even greater apostasy coming and even the luke warm will completely walk away, as will some of the mediocre crowd, and even some who are quite on fire for the Lord will walk away. Those who do not walk in the Holy Spirit will be walking away. This time is not a time for men alone to stand, it will only be the Lord who holds us up under the onsluaght of satans wrath. The only way that happens is for one to be walking completely in the Lord’s Holy Spirit. We are they who are now preparing in every way. Physically spiritually and mentally to stand up under it. Especially spiritually. We speak truth know truth and diligently seek truth. We accept that we do not have all the answers, and we turn deeper into the Lord, for the truths that even hurt to be spoken to us, and to each other.

Do not be fooled truth most often hurts. Being chastened and pruned, and dead ends cut off always hurts. The Lord warns us of this clearly. He disciplines those He loves. He chastens His own. He builds us and molds us and makes us more and more into the image of His son, and that is not pretty. It is hard and rough and most often we cry out Lord how much more can I take? And He says calmly I am right here as much as I do to you, I do for you. As much as I do for you, I also hold you up and fortify you, all things are possible through Christ! So we stay in Him. We stay connected to the vine and we are not cut off but held up and fortified. In our weakness He is strong. So we can do it we surely can do it, through Him and through Him alone can we live through all that is coming. Believing fables will surely get you killed in the end.

In Closing I want you all to understand what we see when we see God’s wrath being poured out from Christ, it does not look like plagues which seals trumpets and vials are, it is fiery and a blood bath the likes of which no one anywhere can even imagine. Men will be consumed where they stand their bodies will melt they will look at each other and marvel as they watch each other disintegrate. The Lord Himself pours out the wrath. Through out the word we see again and again He says I will repay. I take my vengeance. We are told not to have vengeance that the Lord will more than make up for all our suffering by evil men. I hope this helps people to see the truth of the matter. Wrath is poured out by Christ plagues and judgments are given by the Lord to the angels to pour out.

You know it vexes me no end that people think Lot was saved only to please Abraham. Lot was a righteous man we are told in Peter. Lot did not partake of the immorality of Sodom and Gomorrah. He was vexed by their sins and their disgusting way of life. So He lived among the heathen and the depraved, we do too! Look here is the meaning of vex = [veks] verb 1.to irritate; annoy; provoke: His noisy neighbors often vexed him. 2.to torment; trouble; distress; plague; worry: Lack of money vexes many. 3.to discuss or debate (a subject, question, etc.) with vigor or at great length: to vex a question endlessly without agreeing. 4.to disturb by motion; stir up; toss about. 5.to afflict with physical pain.

I imagine Lot standing in the door way of his house looking at all going on in and around the town he lived in, shaking his head in consternation, much like we ourselves do at all that is going on around us.. Look he was a business man he was wealthy and prosperous. And what does anyone care where their money comes from? Being a business owner, I do not care if the people who patronize my business are sinners or saved, I will take all their money for services rendered. Of course I enjoy those people who are the Lords and who come and visit, but they are treated no differently than anyone else. Besides which, I never know whose mind might be changed from sinner to saint, by my loving them.

Let’s just reason together and study the life of Lot, in Genesis it does not say too much, but let’s see what the Lord would show us, and have us know. Gen 12:4-5 4 So Abram departed as the Lord had spoken to him, and Lot went with him. And Abram was seventy-five years old when he departed from Haran. 5 Then Abram took Sarai his wife and Lot his brother’s son, and all their possessions that they had gathered, and the people whom they had acquired in Haran, and they departed to go to the land of Canaan. So they came to the land of Canaan. (So let’s then look at this, the Lord told Abram to leave his fathers land and go to the land the Lord would show him. He took lot with him. Does not say anything as of yet about righteous or not.)

Abram at this time was coming upon the land of Egypt and knowing his wife Sarai was stunningly beautiful he was sure that the king or the men of Egypt, would have him killed to take his wife as their own. Abram lied, Yet Abram was righteous! Think of David and his adultery, as well as then having the man killed to hide his perfidy, yet the Lord called him (David) a man after the Lords own heart. You sin I sin we all sin, but the difference is we ask forgiveness. Let he who is without sin cast the first stone, you can’t and neither can I.

Gen 13:1-4 Then Abram went up from Egypt, he and his wife and all that he had, and Lot with him, to the South.2 Abram was very rich in livestock, in silver, and in gold. 3 And he went on his journey from the South as far as Bethel, to the place where his tent had been at the beginning, between Bethel and Ai, 4 to the place of the altar which he had made there at first. And there Abram called on the name of the Lord. 5-7 Lot also, who went with Abram, had flocks and herds and tents. 6 Now the land was not able to support them, that they might dwell together, for their possessions were so great that they could not dwell together. 7 And there was strife between the herdsmen of Abram’s livestock and the herdsmen of Lot’s livestock. The Canaanites and the Perizzites then dwelt in the land. So there was strife between abrams men and Lot’s but none between Abram and Lot, they reasoned together to work this out no anger no hard feelings.

Gen 13:8 So Abram said to Lot, “Please let there be no strife between you and me, and between my herdsmen and your herdsmen; for we are brethren. 9 Is not the whole land before you? Please separate from me. If you take the left, then I will go to the right; or, if you go to the right, then I will go to the left.” 10 And Lot lifted his eyes and saw all the plain of Jordan, that it was well watered everywhere (before the Lord destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah) like the garden of the Lord, like the land of Egypt as you go toward Zoar. 11 Then Lot chose for himself all the plain of Jordan, and Lot journeyed east. And they separated from each other. 12 Abram dwelt in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelt in the cities of the plain and pitched his tent even as far as Sodom. 13 But the men of Sodom were exceedingly wicked and sinful against the Lord. (Still though it mentions that the men of Sodom were exceedingly wicked, still no mention of Lot being a sinner or anything of the sort.)

Gen 14 speaks of Lot being kidnapped and held prisoner, and Abram goes and rescues Lot. Still no mention at all of Lot being bad, as a matter of fact the kings that won this war against Sodom and Gomorrah took all of Lot’s goods live stock and everything he owned.11 Then they took all the goods of Sodom and Gomorrah, and all their provisions, and went their way.12 They also took Lot, Abram’s brother’s son who dwelt in Sodom, and his goods, and departed. 14:14 Now when Abram heard that his brother was taken captive, he armed his three hundred and eighteen trained servants who were born in his own house, and went in pursuit as far as Dan. 15 He divided his forces against them by night, and he and his servants attacked them and pursued them as far as Hobah, which is north of Damascus. 16 So he brought back all the goods, and also brought back his brother Lot and his goods, as well as the women and the people.

Look at that huh? Abram had 318 trained servants, not soldiers and they defeated the 5 kingsand all their men, who had just won out against four kings. NICE! Nothing more is mentioned of Lot for a little while till chapter 19. In chapter 18 the Lord who had just visited with Abraham was thinking within Himself that He would and should share with Abraham that He was there on a mission to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah. For the wickedness of it was so great, that the cries coming from within it, reached heaven. I do honestly believe it was the Holy Spirit visiting with Abraham for we know men cannot live upon seeing the Lord our God. Chapter 19 is where we see Lot mentioned again.let’s then read the story and see if you can see where Lot might have shown himself to be a wicked and or sin filled man.

Gen 19:1-4 Now the two angels came to Sodom in the evening, and Lot was sitting in the gate of Sodom. When Lot saw them,he rose to meet them, and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground. 2 And he said, “Here now, my lords, please turn in to your servant’s house and spend the night, and wash your feet; then you may rise early and go on your way.”And they said, “No, but we will spend the night in the open square.” 3 But he insisted strongly; so they turned in to him and entered his house. Then he made them a feast, and baked unleavened bread, and they ate. 4 Now before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both old and young, all the people from every quarter, surrounded the house. 5 And they called to Lot and said to him, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us that we may know them carnally.” Lot then offers his two daughters up instead of the Lord’s host.

This was not a sin it makes no mention of Lot being a sinner or doing anything wrong he was making a major and bold offer. Though I am sure he did hope in his heart, these disgusting vile men would not accept this offer. Would we not do something similar in order to protect these which we knew were glowing glorious beings from the Lord? Let’s go on. 6 So Lot went out to them through the doorway, shut the door behind him, 7 and said, “Please, my brethren, do not do so wickedly! 8 See now, I have two daughters who have not known a man; please, let me bring them out to you, and you may do to them as you wish; only do nothing to these men, since this is the reason they have come under the shadow of my roof.” (Not to mention there was no law as of yet. Morals were inbred in people and if they acted against that then it was sin. The Lord built us with morals from the beginning.)

9 And they said, “Stand back!” Then they said, “This one came in to stay here, and he keeps acting as a judge; now we will deal worse with you than with them.” (They called Lot a judgmental jerk in essence in these verses.They then wanted to do some serious damage to Lot, but the angels who were there struck those men blind after ripping Lot into the house with them. Lot was sure he was doing right by the Lord and the Lord certainly did more than right in His dealings with Lot.) So they pressed hard against the man Lot, and came near to break down the door. 10 But the men reached out their hands and pulled Lot into the house with them, and shut the door. 11 And they struck the men who were at the doorway of the house with blindness, both small and great, so that they became weary trying to find the door.

12 Then the men said to Lot, “Have you anyone else here? Son-in-law, your sons, your daughters, and whomever you have in the city—take them out of this place! 13 For we will destroy this place, because the outcry against them has grown great before the face of the Lord, and the Lord has sent us to destroy it.”14 So Lot went out and spoke to his sons-in-law, who had married his daughters, and said, “Get up, get out of this place; for the Lord will destroy this city!” But to his sons-in-law he seemed to be joking. 15 When the morning dawned, the angels urged Lot to hurry, saying, “Arise, take your wife and your two daughters who are here, lest you be consumed in the punishment of the city.” 16 And while he lingered, the men took hold of his hand, his wife’s hand, and the hands of his two daughters, the Lord being merciful to him, and they brought him out and set him outside the city. I can only guess that Lot was thinking of all he owned as well as his other daughters and everything going to be utterly and completely lost to him, which is why the angels had to actually grab his hand and pull him into action.

17 So it came to pass, when they had brought them outside, that he said, “Escape for your life! Do not look behind you nor stay anywhere in the plain. Escape to the mountains, lest you be destroyed.” 18 Then Lot said to them, “Please, no, my lords! 19 Indeed now, your servant has found favor in your sight, and you have increased your mercy which you have shown me by saving my life; but I cannot escape to the mountains, lest some evil overtake me and I die. 20 See now, this city is near enough to flee to, and it is a little one; please let me escape there (is it not a little one?) and my soul shall live.” 21 And he said to him, “See, I have favored you concerning this thing also, in that I will not overthrow this city for which you have spoken. 22 Hurry, escape there. For I cannot do anything until you arrive there.” (Here now is where it get’s interesting. The Lord would not ever save an unrighteous man. He never has before.)

23 The sun had risen upon the earth when Lot entered Zoar. 24 Then the Lord rained brimstone and fire on Sodom and Gomorrah, from the Lord out of the heavens. 25 So He overthrew those cities, all the plain, all the inhabitants of the cities, and what grew on the ground. 26 But his wife looked back behind him, and she became a pillar of salt. She must have looked back with longing for her life that she was leaving behind, not to mention her children who were going to be destroyed due to their lack of trusting their father and or father in-law. The fact that Lot’s wife was disobedient to what she was told straight up, do not look back, cannot be missed in this as well. Disobedience is death brothers and sisters. To fool yourselves into believing that God does not expect perfect obedience is pure folly on anyone’s part. Jesus mentions something to this effect in Luke 14:33, So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.

27 And Abraham went early in the morning to the place where he had stood before the Lord. 28 Then he looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the plain; and he saw, and behold, the smoke of the land which went up like the smoke of a furnace. 29 And it came to pass, when God destroyed the cities of the plain, that God remembered Abraham, and sent Lot out of the midst of the overthrow, when He overthrew the cities in which Lot had dwelt. (Now here is where people get all self righteous and hypocritical is in the rest of Lot’s story. In chapter 19 we see what became of Lot and his two daughters.) 30 Then Lot went up out of Zoar and dwelt in the mountains, and his two daughters were with him; for he was afraid to dwell in Zoar. And he and his two daughters dwelt in a cave. 31 Now the firstborn said to the younger, “Our father is old, and there is no man on the earth to come in to us as is the custom of all the earth. So they devised a plan. This was not Lot’s plan, and nowhere does it say that He sinned or did anything against the Lord.

32 Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him, that we may preserve the lineage of our father.” 33 So they made their father drink wine that night. (Now think on this for a moment, the man had lost all he had everything he owned he was now poor and destitute, his wife became a pillar of salt.He lost his other children, this is how his daughters would have been able to have him drink wine. I can only imagine they were cajoling, come father no more crying just drink some wine to make you forget for a little while that you may rest.) And the firstborn went in and lay with her father, and he did not know when she lay down or when she arose.34 It happened on the next day that the firstborn said to the younger, “Indeed I lay with my father last night; let us make him drink wine tonight also, and you go in and lie with him, that we may preserve the lineage of our father.”35 Then they made their father drink wine that night also. And the younger arose and lay with him, and he did not know when she lay down or when she arose.He had no clue what happened. And though I do not want to sound like a broken record there were no laws at that time. How could Lot be breaking laws if there wre none?

Another fact I want to bring up is this, Abraham married his half sister. Same father different mother.19:36 Thus both the daughters of Lot were with child by their father. 37 The firstborn bore a son and called his name Moab; he is the father of the Moabites to this day. 38 And the younger, she also bore a son and called his name Ben-Ammi; he is the father of the people of Ammon to this day. If anyone sinned in this it was the two daughters. They produced sons both of them who became rulers and their ancestors still to this day rule the lands they had taken as their own. (Ammon is the capitol city of Jordan in our modern day, and Moab is also in Jordan. Now think on these verses by Peter whom the Holy Spirit filled with knowledge and wisdom, as well as remembrance for all that Jesus told the Apostles.)

2 Peter 2:4-11 For if God did not spare the angels who sinned, but cast them down to hell and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved for judgment; 5 and did not spare the ancient world, but saved Noah, one of eight people, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood on the world of the ungodly; 6 and turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes, condemned them to destruction, making them an example to those who afterward would live ungodly; 7 and delivered righteous Lot, who was oppressed by the filthy conduct of the wicked 8 (for that righteous man, dwelling among them, tormented his righteous soul from day to day by seeing and hearing their lawless deeds)—9 then the Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations and to reserve the unjust under punishment for the day of judgment, 10 and especially those who walk according to the flesh in the lust of uncleanness and despise authority. They are presumptuous, self-willed. They are not afraid to speak evil of dignitaries, 11 whereas angels, who are greater in power and might, do not bring a reviling accusation against them before the Lord. Let’s see God did not spare anyone who was immoral and unrighteous. No God will not ever save anyone for anyone else’s sake.

This clearly spells out if you are not living for the Lord, working your best for Him, and trying with all you have not to sin, you are doomed! The angels who are so much higher than we are I mean they are in the very presence of God Himself were not spared for their siding with satan, what makes you lowly human think he will spare you? Grace sets us free from bondage of sin but if you go back to it you have re-enslaved yourself. Your name will be blotted out of the book. Lot was a righteous man to say he was not and the Lord saved him anyway is pure garbage and has no part of it in the truth. God will not ever esteem any man above Himself. God knows us better than we know ourselves, and knows humans only see what He has found it good to show them. Now you will not lose your salvation if you repent of your sins, but repentance is an ongoing thing through out our lives. The Holy Spirit will clearly show us what we are doing wrong, he will sear your conscience, to bring you to the realization that this is not acceptable. It is when you just keep sinning and vex the Holy Spirit that you will once for all time lose your salvation.

God knows us as I said, better than we know ourselves, you cannot fool the Lord. When I am having a hard time with something then I cry out to the Lord, help me see Lord the error that is causing me to put doors in between us, and He does. We must continually as long as we sin ask forgiveness. Nothing with the Lord is taken for granted though He knows your thoughts and will most times answer before you ask, He still expects you to ask. It is the same with forgiveness, you must always ask for it no matter how much you have sinned, or how little it is always best as Jesus said, to ask forgiveness when He told the disciples of the perfect prayer that was one of the things He said was good to pray. In Fact He quantifies that part in the verse right after the perfect prayer, Look here at Matthew 6 verses 9-15.

9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. 10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. 11 Give us this day our daily bread. 12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. 13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen. 14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: 15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. Then you can also look at the parable of the servant who was forgiven his debts and then went out and gave hell to one who owed him. Then all he had was taken from him and he was thrown into prison, never to be forgiven again, Matthew 18:21-35. Look people when thinking to yourself is this sin or not well all you have to do is compare it to love, does love think this, does love look at this, does love feel this, does love do this? If the answer is no then if you do it that is sin. Love is now what we measure sin against. Let’s not forget love covers a multitude of sin. 1 Peter 4:8.

If you love you will not cheat, steal, lie, be jealous of, you will not kill, nor blaspheme, you will not spread around rumors or gossip. As the time get’s closer and closer for the tribulation we are going to find loving so much the harder, we will be vexed like Lot was on all sides. We are all vexed as it is, and it is just going to get worse and worse, if we lose the Love we have lost the salvation, given it up, passed it out of our grasp or understanding. We must measure our every thought word and deed by the measure of love. If love would not do it then you had better not do it either. Lot would have been persecuted to death had the angels not grabbed him out of that angry mob. They were horribly angry with Lot because he judged them all the time, they said it not me! Lot was a righteous man, He loved the Lord so much that he was willing to sacrifice his two daughters to the men of S&G, in order to save the messengers of God. He recognized their perfection and bowed low to them as did Abraham. Sinners do not recognize that, and would not bow humbly down before the workers of the Lord. We are now in what can be called the pre tribulation period. Do not be surprised at the painful ordeals we are going to go through, and even expect and praise the Lord for the trials He will bring on you before the tribulation, to build you into a fruitful child of God.

Do not look to your brother sister friend, mother father, nor your spouse to help you understand what comes upon us all. The relationship between you and the Lord is a very personal one. In fact you can call it a customized relationship, because the Lord knows how to speak to you, to help you understand in the very best way. He has preparation in mind for you. It is all in His word and then there is the outside of the bible knowledge that He pours upon your heart that let’s you know what is coming. He is so faithful and so worthy of praise and honor. When you trust Him in anything, He will show you over and over again why it is good to trust in Him. To believe that Lot was not righteous and the Lord saved Him anyway, I have to ask what God is it you believe in? Because the God of the bible has never and will never save someone who is not righteous. Let me help ingrain this thought in your mind. He sent a piece of Himself to this earth to live as a man, He humbled Himself in the form of a man and came to this earth to save us and bring us back to Himself.

He sent Jesus to die and when Jesus was in process of dying for our sins, taking our place, paying the price of it, God the Father, turned away from His own son, His own self, that is how much He can not look upon sin. He sent Himself the piece of His human self, to hell to pay the price for becoming sin, but Jesus was victorious and was raised from the dead, taking the keys of hell with Him to have dominion over it forever more. If He did not spare Jesus in becoming our sin, why would He spare you?

Love in Christ Jesus, Tammy

I cannot imagine what people are doing when they spout the garbage of a lie called the pre tribulation rapture. They speak first of how the Holy Spirit is the one who convicts us of sin, and then talk in the next breath, of the Holy Spirit being gone before the tribulation and the people left behind going to have another chance of being saved. Well hate to burst the bubble folks but how can that make any sense? If the Holy Spirits job is to convict us of sin, and make us see our own sin and make us aware of the opportunity to be washed completely clean of our pasts, how would anyone then get saved?

So that in and of itself is one of the problems of a pre tribulation rapture. Then the fact that the Holy Spirit is what empowers us to do the works required of us to maintain our own salvation, to remain in the very vine as Jesus put it in John 15:4-5 4 Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. 5 “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. See we can do nothing if we do not remain in Him. He sent the Holy Spirit to bring us into all truth. He gives us remembrance of the verses to use to speak to people, in the great commission.

The great commission is our duty as Christians, to build up the kingdom of God. Then think about all those folks saying it is very clear in the bible that there is two comings of the Lord. Really? I have to ask for real? I mean come on people the bible does not say any such thing. Jesus came once to bring the world to salvation and to bring salvation to the world. Next time He comes it is to take His kingdom back!! As it was in His first coming He took the keys of hell and hades and released the captives that were in Sheol. Those souls are already in Heaven, those are they which will be raised on that last day to life and their souls reunited with their bodies that have been buried. That is the first resurrection there is no three resurrections.

The sisters of Lazarus knew there was one resurrection from Jesus, here let us look at that verse. John 11:24 Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day. What was the finisher to that sentence? Oh yes at the what? At the last day he will rise. These two verses here speak of something the Lord just showed me, Heb 11:39-40 39 And all these, having obtained a good testimony through faith, did not receive the promise, 40 God having provided something better for us, that they should not be made perfect apart from us. So we who are alive will not go before those who are dead. They must be resurrected first, as per Thessalonians and Corinthians.

Let’s first look at Revelation and what these verses have to say. Revelation 20:5 The rest of the dead didn’t live until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. Revelation 20:6 Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over these, the second death has no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ, and will reign with him one thousand years. This resurrection of the dead who are just, must and will take place before those who are alive and well in that time. We will not be changed before the people who are dead that are Christ’s, rise first. Now let’s look at Thessalonians and Corinthians and what they say.

1 Corinthians 15: 50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does corruption inherit incorruption. 51 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. 53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. 54 So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory.”

1 Thess 4: 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 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 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.

Time and again I have seen these verses used to say there is a pre tribulation rapture. There is no such thing. All of the first church fathers Polycarp, Hypolitus, Irenaeus, Tertulian, they all know that it is a post tribulation catching away. I have never in the word of God, seen one spot where the Lord is throwing any kind of party while His people were suffering. A victory party and or celebration is only after the battle has been won. The bride will not be caught away until; she has been purified as through fire. Not until her gown has been made white and pure. Not before she has been through trials and tribulation. We must according to Paul enter the kingdom of God through much tribulation. Acts 14:22.

Daniel also tells us in chapter 12:10 many will be made white and made spotless and refined in that time. But the wicked will not understand and will keep on getting wickeder. So let’s then look at the word refined = having or showing well-bred feeling, taste, etc.: freed or free from coarseness, vulgarity, etc.: freed from impurities: cultivated, polished, polite, courteous, civilized, courtly, genteel, and elegant. Clarified, distilled, purified. Purified is the word that is in stark contrast it makes us understand what it means to be refined. God Himself said in Malachi 3 that He will sit as a refiner of silver in the last days.

Silver is refined through much heat it brings the impurities up to float on the top of the molten liquid. The impurities are scooped off and the refining goes on still bringing more and more impurities up to the surface to be scooped off and thrown away. Then the silver smith or the purifier of the silver knows the silver is ready because he can see his reflection in the pure silver looking back at him. It is the same with the Lord dear brothers and sisters. We won’t be ready for Him or pure enough for Him until He looks down upon the earth and sees His own reflection looking back at him. The only way to be purified is through fiery trials.

In 1 Pet 4:12-13 we are told 12 Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you; 13 but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ’s sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy. That chapter goes on further to explain even more fully look. 16 Yet if anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God in this matter. 17 For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God? 18 Now “If the righteous one is scarcely saved, where will the ungodly and the sinner appear?” 19 Therefore let those who suffer according to the will of God commit their souls to Him in doing good, as to a faithful Creator.

The church is where judgment begins and that only near the end at the beginning of the 7 last years. I believe honestly the Lord is already busy judging us the church and separating us the good seed from the bad. Though the world at large does not know of this we should be feeling the heat of the eyes of our Father in heaven searching us right now. I know I am surely hearing seeing and feeling it. He is very busy these days. I believe we are all being judged to see which of the seven churches we belong to, of Revelation 2 and 3. Those churches have not been done away with, the spirit of each is still very active. I know which church I pray to be a part of, I may not be a part of the church I hope I am part of. God’s will be done.

It is funny the people who go through the hardest trials and tribulations and severe persecution at this time, know that it is a post tribulation taking away. Only at the last day. Daniel says something so intriguing, blessed are they which remain to the 1335th day. See because the whole great tribulation does not begin until he who calls himself god stands in the temple defiling it. Then comes “The great tribulation” which is 1290 days or 42 months. So I wonder will the trumpet blast the last vial and the 7th seal all go off at the 1335th day? Not sure but in looking at Revelation 14:13 it makes me think there is some time before the rapture actually takes place.

Read for yourself and pray for the answer. And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labors; and their works do follow them. Something else the Lord made quite bright in my eyes was the beginning of Daniel chapter 12:1 “At that time Michael shall stand up, The great prince who stands watch over the sons of your people; And there shall be a time of trouble, Such as never was since there was a nation, Even to that time. And at that time your people shall be delivered, everyone who is found written in the book. Now isn’t that funny? The Lord gave me that to think on as I pondered the thoughts of who is the restrainer.

If Michael is watching over us and then that might mean he is keeping satan and or evil at bay, when he stands up is that not in essence saying he is moved out of the way? It can only be that. Nothing else could possibly make sense. The Holy Spirit cannot leave until Jesus comes back. Remember Jesus said I am going and I send another comforter in my place. If I do not go he cannot come? John 14:16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever; And then there is John 16:7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. So the Holy Spirit had no need to be here as long as Jesus was here, and He the Holy Spirit is sent to us that we may have him forever.

So no one clearly, can entertain the idea that the Holy Spirit is the one who restrains. He cannot be moved out of the way that verse if it meant that could not even come close to matching the rest of the entire bible. It makes no sense, when one knows that the Holy Spirit, is the one who draws us, the one who empowers people, who fills us with faith. We know also Michael and the heavenly angels will engage satan and the fallen angels in a war that takes place in heaven. This is at the halfway point of the final week or final 7 years and that is exactly when the antichrist will claim to be God. I believe that the timing is exactly as that due to satan coming down on the earth because he knows he has but a short time and that is when all hell will break loose.

The anti-christ will make war with the saints and the Jews. Being empowered by satan, that man of sin will be able to bring down fire from heaven and do many miraculous signs that would, if it were possible, fool the elect of God. But we who are prepared for this, who do not believe for one moment that we will be removed from this that is coming, we are making ourselves ready to stand under the trials. We are preparing our armor for battle like never before. We know many of us will be the martyrs under the altar crying out for vengeance of our blood, to the Father. But He will tell us not yet not until the full numbers of your brothers come in Rev6:9. That means there are still plenty who have to die in that time.

Many people actually somehow or another separate the Jews who come to Christ and the Gentiles from one another. They think they are separate but let’s look at what is actually said about this. Romans 10:12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. Also Galatians 3:28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. Read the rest yourself. Then there is the fact that some claim that the post tribulation rapture cannot make sense because who will repopulate the earth? The olive tree is Israel, and we gentiles are grafted in, we in essence become as Jews though we do not have to observe their Jewish laws, and or feasts and such. Jesus fulfilled the law!

Revelation has the answer to this. These are the unbelieving Jews they will not believe until Jesus returns to take us up and to go to the battle of Armageddon. This remnant will be protected per Rev 12:1-6 but especially verse 6. Because 1-5 speaks of Israel in the past she birthed the Messiah, then to finish that part off He was caught up to the Father. But verse 6 describes the non-believing Jews being cared for and protected in the wilderness for 1260 days. Matthew 24 speaks of those who will mourn as they see Jesus on the clouds then Israel will have no choice but to believe, and those will be the ones who repopulate the earth. It will be too late and plus they have to see to believe that is not cool in the Lord’s eyes, even though He has set those aside to repopulate the earth. Let me help you see a little clearer this particular group of verses.

The end of the age is not until Jesus steps down and the angels shout it is done. Until the times of the gentiles be fulfilled, the Jews will remain blind. God has done this so that He may set aside a remnant to repopulate the earth with those very people. Luke 21:24 tells us this truth. And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled. Zechariah chapter 13 read verses 7-9 this is that remnant; Jesus Himself will be teaching them. He is going to rule with a rod of iron friends that is not a playful upbringing. Those whom He loves He chastens and disciplines, Hebrews 12:6

Zechariah 12 tells us a 1/3rd of Israel will be protected and they will be those who repopulate the earth. That takes care of that issue. We know there is someone who repopulates the earth and that there is no two raptures. There is only one and it is at the end when all who will be saved, will be saved. There is no verse that tells us that there is a pre tribulation anything. That is merely men coming up with a fantastic argument, that when compared to actual scripture cannot hold up. Where does the Lord tell us anything about it being the feast of trumpets? Nowhere friends, not anywhere! That is men trying to back themselves out of a corner. The Lord speaks of trumpets in Revelation that which is the very book of the end times, those things that must soon come to pass according to John, and had not happened as of Johns time, and neither have they occurred as of yet. Oh But it is coming!

We need not that any man explains the scriptures to us per 1 John 2:27. The Holy Spirit is our guide into all truth. Have you been anointed by the Holy Spirit? If not then you are simply doing and reading the scriptures out of your own strength which will fail you. You cannot fully understand the scriptures, neither can you perform any of the spirit given gifts if you have not been baptized, immersed in the Holy Spirit. My own precious mother one of the saintliest saints I know, kept asking me how is it that you understand the word and I have been reading it for 30 years and still cannot maintain it in my memory nor do I understand completely what it is saying?

I prayed with her and my dad to be immersed in the Holy Spirit to be baptized and to have ears to hear and eyes to see what the Spirit has to say and show, and lo and behold they called me up not long after and were so amazed at the transformation of their understanding and how wisdom was being poured out on them. It thrills me that I was able to know what to pray and how to pray and that I was the one who helped them to finally have that amazing understanding knowledge and wisdom. Of course I had nothing to do with any of it in reality, no this was and is the Holy Spirit at work through me and now in them and through them. Praise Him!

Often I notice too, that pre tribulation believers keep insisting that certain books are to certain people in the New Testament, but Paul tells us in 2Timothy 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: How does anyone separate the word of God ? What makes people think that this is for that set of people and that for that set of people? No the entire bible all of it is for all of us Jew and Gentile alike. How does one decide whom the Lord is apparently addressing in any of the books? Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believes; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. << or Gentiles in other words.

Look people, to deliberately allow yourself to be misled because you do not want to see if your faith is enough to see you through the trials and tribulation that are coming upon us all, that is pure folly on your part. You cannot expect a Holy and Pure God to accept your very human weakness, when time and again we are told He is strongest in our weakness. If we do not trust Him enough to see us through then we are out of will. He is showing me that there is no excuses that work where he is concerned. Your watered down version of the word and your ears being tickled are according to the Lord leading you to death. Seriously do you believe the Lord is going to send a few good men and women out to tell you truth so that you can jeer at them and point at them and say gloom and doomers? Or are you yourself actually fulfilling prophecy? In that they will not endure sound doctrine but instead heap unto themselves false teachers who tickle their ears? 2Tim 4:4

Because they did not love the truth God will send them strong delusion that they shall believe a lie 2 Thess 2:11, what lie is that I wonder? How about you’re not going to be here for the last 7 years, that lie is huge, and stupid people who will not endure truth eat it up like so much manna from heaven when it is maggots and filth and lies of satan. Yes that’s right I called you stupid, because though the Lord keeps sending you the truth so that you begin to question this lie, you then turn your ears and eyes away from it, saying no my pastor said! That is the height of foolery and stupidity. Men are fallible so am I! We are humans and we are subject to hearing the lies of satan as truth. But if you seek in all honestly Him to show you truth you will then see it and know it so deeply no one can ever teach you wrong and you believe ever again.

We all hear things the way we want to and will lend credence to lies to make it more palatable to us. Who really wants to think of ourselves and our children going through such tough times as the Lord describes in His word the end times? Never ever realizing that God allows us certain trials and troubles to grow us, strengthen our faith, and build us into whom He is making us to be. We are to go through the tribulation to refine us to clean us and purify us. God would not allow us near His son unless we are fully accepting of the Lord and all His ways, unless we are a pure and chastened bride, with our gowns sparkling white not a stain or wrinkle on them. But ask yourself why if you’re not going to be here does the Lord exhort us to read the word and know it and why does Revelation alone come with a promise of blessing to all who read it and adhere to it?

The Lord is calling his saints to armor up, He is separating the wheat from the chaff spiritually not physically as of yet. He is calling on pure hearts who seek Him and all His ways in truth. He is calling you to prepare for battle, the very battle of your life. He told us to live in the world but not be of the world. So many Christians are halfway, and that my sisters and brothers makes you foreigners to the Lord. He does not want some idiotic fake man pleasing false faith, you’re not fooling Him at all. You’re fooling yourself and maybe some other idiotic fake half way nano Christians. I really do not care if you find that harsh, honestly the Lord is making me to feel sickened by that type of person, and telling me to have nothing to do with them. Wake Up!

False teaching is false teaching and believing it is your fault no one else. God will of course have something for those false teachers but then He will turn to you and say why did you believe this person or group of persons? My word has sufficient evidence to refute the lies, as well as the Holy Spirit being in you to discern truth. What of that? You will have no excuse! 1 John 5: 18 We know that whoever is born of God does not sin; but he who has been born of God keeps himself, and the wicked one does not touch him. 19 We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one.20 And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us an understanding, that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.

Ask the Lord seek Him and only Him for the truth in His word. Ask Him to help you forget all you have been taught about a pre tribulation rapture, it is a pack of lies. Plead with the Lord for truth to be told you by the Holy Spirit it is the most important thing you will ever do. I am telling you, you are believing a lie that is going to lead you to some place you never thought you would go in this world and then in eternity. God does not play games not even a little. He has a wonderful sense of humor and will catch you unawares with it at the most awesome times, but where the truth is concerned forget about it! You will be held responsible for your own wrong beliefs. We will give account of every thought and word we speak or think one day and you will eat the fruit of it.

Do you want that to be delicious sweet pure fruit? Or would you prefer dead old squishy sour fruit? I personally am looking for that pure sweet fruit, and am working my tail off, with the help of the Holy Spirit, to keep my words and my thoughts pure. Life is but a vapor and before we know it that time will be upon us, will you fall away or succumb? Or will you last and stand firm to the end to be saved? We are redeemed but the fullness of that salvation has not come as of yet. He who stands firm till the end he shall be saved, Matthew 10:22 and 24:13. This is a huge important doctrine there is no compromise allowed. That’s another thing, too much compromise and tolerance of all that is going on in the world, entirely too much apathy and complacence, that is why we are where we are at prophetically, on the precipice of everything. We could have, if we were not so complacent for the last four or five generations been further from it all.

The protected church in the tribulation the church of Philadelphia, is the only one who is promised to be protected through the tribulation. The Greek word used for keep from is Terrios Ek which means to watch over to guard through or in the midst of. Psalm 91 is perfectly describing that protection as well as Job 5. Read all of Job 5 and Psalm 91 and give praise and pray and plead to be of that group. Here is some of Job 5 that blew my mind upon discovering it.

Job 5:17-27 “Behold, happy is the man whom God corrects; Therefore do not despise the chastening of the Almighty. 18 For He bruises, but He binds up; He wounds, but His hands make whole. 19 He shall deliver you in six troubles, Yes, in seven no evil shall touch you. 20 In famine He shall redeem you from death, And in war from the power of the sword. 21 You shall be hidden from the scourge of the tongue,
And you shall not be afraid of destruction when it comes. 22 You shall laugh at destruction and famine, And you shall not be afraid of the beasts of the earth. 23 For you shall have a covenant with the stones of the field, And the beasts of the field shall be at peace with you. 24 You shall know that your tent is in peace; You shall visit your dwelling and find nothing amiss. 25 You shall also know that your descendants shall be many, And your offspring like the grass of the earth. 26 You shall come to the grave at a full age, As a sheaf of grain ripens in its season. 27 Behold, this we have searched out; It is true.
Hear it, and know for yourself.”

That is so very good all of it. I love it! So clearly it is saying everything the Lord has given me and adding more to it. Praise Him for He is worthy!
Love in Christ, Tammy

Damnable Heresies Of Our Day 2 Jesus Is God

posted by PrayerWarrior

The second part of this study I want to show is Proofs that God Himself claimed He would come as a man, and that man was and is Jesus. This particular study the Lord has shown me over and over again Himself as God. I am excited for this one. I have many verses Old and New Testaments. I prayed and asked the Lord for His wisdom in doing these, that I may say something that will clear this up in people’s minds. I honestly do not understand why people have such a hard time accepting God at His word. He says He is Jesus, He says as Jesus He is God. What more proof do we need? I hope you all pray before reading these articles for understanding.

Think about first of all how God said if man were to see Him in all of who He is, we would die! Exodus 33:20 But He said, “You cannot see My face; for no man shall see Me, and live.” 21 And the Lord said, “Here is a place by Me, and you shall stand on the rock. 22 So it shall be, while My glory passes by, that I will put you in the cleft of the rock, and will cover you with My hand while I pass by. 23 Then I will take away My hand, and you shall see My back; but My face shall not be seen.” We cannot look upon the face of God.

Then in 1 Timothy 6:15-16 here also it speaks of Him not being seen, as well as being Jesus. We know clearly Jesus has been seen, but look how Paul explains Him here. 15 which He will manifest in His own time, He who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings and Lord of lords, 16 who alone has immortality, dwelling in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see, to whom be honor and everlasting power Amen. Now look Paul thinks of Jesus as God. It is very clear and right in our face. The only way to look past this is without thinking about it, which is no way to study the word. We must meditate on the word, which means take it deep down in and ponder it in your heart.

When the Lord showed me this next part I was blown away, how very awesome is our God? Awesomeness has no other name than the Lord our God. 2 Peter 3:3-9, 1 Beloved, I now write to you this second epistle (in both of which I stir up your pure minds by way of reminder), 2 that you may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us, the apostles of the Lord and Savior, 3 knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, 4 and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.”

5 For this they willfully forget: that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of water and in the water, 6 by which the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water. 7 But the heavens and the earth which are now preserved by the same word, are reserved for fire until the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. 8 But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 9 The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.

Then the Lord showed me this in Exodus 32. This is what happened when Moses left the Israelites too long. They built themselves a calf and some, many actually began worshiping it. It is just like in Peter how people think that they have been forgotten about, and began doing those things which are called idolatry. They actually said this is the god that brought us out of Egypt. Read the whole of it, it is very interesting. It is as though the Lord was saying this is what is happening these days. Men are listening to men, creating their own sort of god to worship. But the Lord told me this is not me they are worshiping. They are worshiping a god of their own making, a god who does not exist!

People God is God and He does not change. Men creating strange doctrines and strange gods are still idolaters and false teachers. It is when men tell me or even women, here let me explain to you so you understand, that I am thinking no thanks I am outta here. Like I said in the first part of this article, if you have to have people explain to you what the bible says, and you have to do mental gymnastics, then you’re no longer getting the truth. The Holy Spirit will teach you everything you need to know, and it is only the absolute truth. Discernment comes with the Holy Spirit being poured out on you or in you. There is no other sense than God sense dear brothers and sisters. Men are men and that is all there is to that. If they cannot worship I truth then let them deal with the consequences you keep yourself holy and pure.

Now back to the many verses the Lord led me to. They will be all over the place in no special order this is how the Lord showed me them. 8 “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End,” says the Lord, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.” This one clearly Jesus is telling us he is Alpha and Omega. This needs no explanation. Phil 2:5-8 5 Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, 6 who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, 7 but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. 8 And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. Clearly says he was in heaven and became a man!

Deut 6:4 “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one! 5 You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. He is one! Isaiah 48:16-17 16 “Come near to Me, hear this: I have not spoken in secret from the beginning; From the time that it was, I was there.
And now the Lord God and His Spirit Have sent Me.” 17 Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer,
The Holy One of Israel: “I am the Lord your God, Who teaches you to profit, Who leads you by the way you should go. Hmmm picture becoming clearer? John 15:26 “But when the Helper comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify of Me. So He Jesus can send the Holy Spirit, why because He is God!

Matt 28:19, this verse shows us we must call upon the Father the Son and the Holy Spirit when baptizing. If they are not one, why then do we need to call on the three? John 10:30-33 30 I and My Father are one.” 31 Then the Jews took up stones again to stone Him. 32 Jesus answered them, “Many good works I have shown you from My Father. For which of those works do you stone Me?” 33 The Jews answered Him, saying, “For a good work we do not stone You, but for blasphemy, and because You, being a Man, make Yourself God.” Jesus made out to be God, and they wanted to stone Him. He did not correct them!

John 8:58. With this verse I hear the bells going off, ding ding ding. 58 Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM.” Moses was told to tell the Israelites I Am has sent you. Jesus is not a liar He spoke nothing but truth at all times. To claim He is God would either be a horrible lie or it is the truth. Jesus is named the way the truth and the life. John 4:26, 8:24, 8:28. Read those as well. Col 1:15-17 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. 17 And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.

John 1:1-3 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. 1:14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. This deserves the verse in Isaiah where the Lord tells he shares His glory with no one. Isaiah 48:11 For My own sake, for My own sake, I will do it;
For how should My name be profaned? And I will not give My glory to another. Hmmm Yet we know Jesus was glorified! John 13:31.

Acts 20 speaks of false teachers and savage wolves coming in from among our own. People please do not allow yourselves to be led astray with strange doctrines. Just because we cannot understand our infinite God with our finite minds, is no excuse. You had better get busy praying for understanding in the Holy Spirit. God if He came down as Himself, would have killed us all, so He worked around that, and made himself a man, to purchase us back from sin. He does not conform to your ideas of who He should be. No He has a purpose for everything He does and we cannot see that because we are not infinite yet.

1 Tim 3:16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifested in the flesh, Justified in the Spirit, Seen by angels, Preached among the Gentiles, Believed on in the world, Received up in glory. Immanuel God with us is how Isaiah was shown Jesus long before He came. Isaiah 7:14 Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Look at that, Mighty God! Can it get any more plain? The Lord said keep going. So we keep going.

Matt 1:23 23 “Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.” Luke 7:16 Then fear came upon all, and they glorified God, saying, “A great prophet has risen up among us”; and, “God has visited His people.” This was when Jesus raised the dead boy and gave him back to his mother. Jesus did not correct the people. Do not think within yourself He was being polite, Jesus being God is no respecter of persons. He spoke truth at all times and allowed no one any misconceptions.

John 13:13. You call Me Teacher and Lord, and you say well, for so I am. Again Jesus did not correct them and also added I Am! Mark 14:62 Jesus said, “I am. And you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Power, and coming with the clouds of heaven.” John 14:7,9-10 7 “If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him.”9 Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; so how can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? 10 Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does the works.

Again with the bells I almost hear them ringing. John 17:5 And now, O Father, glorify Me together with Yourself, with the glory which I had with You before the world was. John 20:28 And Thomas answered and said to Him, “My Lord and my God!” 2 Cor 4:4 whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them. Col 2:8-10 8 Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ. 9 For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily;10 and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.

Heb 1:2-3. 2 has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds; 3 who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high. Heb 1:8-9 But to the Son He says: “Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; A scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom. 9 You have loved righteousness and hated lawlessness; Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You With the oil of gladness more than Your companions.”

Titus 2:13-14 read this carefully and ponder it you who also believe that you cannot lose your salvation. 13 looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, 14 who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works. Purifying us for zealous good works, that is seriously important to realize and believe. That he came to purify us but we can sully all that beautiful work He did for us at the cross. By being like dogs who go back to their vomit. Just like pigs who go back to wallow in the mud. They become filthy again, and the dogs eating their vomit, are only making themselves ill again.

Malachi 4:2 But to you who fear My name The Sun of Righteousness shall arise With healing in His wings; And you shall go out And grow fat like stall-fed calves. Isaiah 8:8 He will pass through Judah,
He will overflow and pass over, He will reach up to the neck; And the stretching out of his wings
Will fill the breadth of Your land, O Immanuel. This is speaking of God and Jesus as God. Jeremiah 23:5-6 “Behold, the days are coming,” says the Lord, “That I will raise to David a Branch of righteousness; A King shall reign and prosper, and execute judgment and righteousness in the earth.6 In His days Judah will be saved, And Israel will dwell safely; Now this is His name by which He will be called: THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.

Luke 5:20-24 20 When He saw their faith, He said to him, “Man, your sins are forgiven you.” 21 And the scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, saying, “Who is this who speaks blasphemies? Who can forgive sins but God alone?” 22 But when Jesus perceived their thoughts, He answered and said to them, “Why are you reasoning in your hearts? 23 Which is easier, to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven you,’ or to say, ‘Rise up and walk’? 24 But that you may know that the Son of Man has power on earth to forgive sins”—He said to the man who was paralyzed, “I say to you, arise, take up your bed, and go to your house.” Again Jesus said He is God. Now a mere man cannot hear peoples thoughts Jesus could and did and we see that a few times throughout the NT.

Col 1:15-26 15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. 17 And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. 18 And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.

19 For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell, 20 and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross.21 And you, who once were alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now He has reconciled 22 in the body of His flesh through death, to present you holy, and blameless, and above reproach in His sight— 23 if indeed you continue in the faith, grounded and steadfast, and are not moved away from the hope of the gospel which you heard, which was preached to every creature under heaven, of which I, Paul, became a minister.

24 I now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up in my flesh what is lacking in the afflictions of Christ, for the sake of His body, which is the church, 25 of which I became a minister according to the stewardship from God which was given to me for you, to fulfill the word of God, 26 the mystery which has been hidden from ages and from generations, but now has been revealed to His saints. Straight up easy to understand, He is God!

We are almost done with this one. Yay!! I love it this gives me such warmth head to toe to be made to understand the simplicity of the Word. Which is foolishness to those who are perishing. Guess those who say Jesus is not God are perishing. Daniel 7:13-14 “I was watching in the night visions,
And behold, One like the Son of Man, Coming with the clouds of heaven! He came to the Ancient of Days, and they brought Him near before Him. 14 Then to Him was given dominion and glory and a kingdom, that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, And His kingdom the one which shall not be destroyed.

Luke 8:38-39 38 Now the man from whom the demons had departed begged Him that he might be with Him. But Jesus sent him away, saying, 39 “Return to your own house, and tell what great things God has done for you.” And he went his way and proclaimed throughout the whole city what great things Jesus had done for him. Luke 17:17-19 17 So Jesus answered and said, “Were there not ten cleansed? But where are the nine? 18 Were there not any found who returned to give glory to God except this foreigner?” 19 And He said to him, “Arise, go your way. Your faith has made you well.” Again Jesus claims to be God. All these claims of Jesus and the apostles that He is God how can we not believe in truth and believe He who is truth God the Father God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. If they both have control of the Holy Spirit it means they are one.

God does not mess around I know that people for some reason seem to have no fear of the Lord dear family in Him you must have fear of the Lord for that is the way in which we will learn to be Holy as he is Holy. We will learn wisdom and knowledge and strength by being in Him and he in us. If we let go of that which we hold fast to, we will lose our place in His kingdom and He will blot your name out of the book. You must if you do not understand have the Holy Spirit be immersed in Him. It is not what comes with salvation. Salvation marks you as His but if you do not believe Him in truth and in Spirit then you have believed for nothing. Simply believing in Him is not enough the devils believe and tremble James 2:19.

Do not listen to mere men they are fallible and not responsible for how and what you believe. You will be held accountable to God for your right and wrong beliefs. Believe in truth only truth. Believe in the word of God and believe and pray for the Holy Spirit to show you this and to rid you of your taught and or preconceived notions. He is faithful to remove those from you. I know this from firsthand experience. I prayed Lord show me the truth about the tribulation that I may never fall away walk away or choose to disown you. Take away all I have been taught and all that I am holding onto as gospel and show me clearly. He is Faithful and did that for me.

Love in Christ, Tammy
