The Rapture Force

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

Dec-23-15

Love God, Love others!

posted by PrayerWarrior

I am astounded beyond words with how insane things are. I knew love would be called hate, I knew hate would be called love, but there is so much more to that whole story than we see.

Isaiah 5:20 Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;
Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
The Holy Spirit fills in the blanks for us. God never says more than what needs saying. His word does not mince words, it needs no more words than it has, because in order to get the rest of the story, the complete understanding of that concept, One must have the Holy Spirit living within them!

If the Holy Spirit resides inside you, you will have what is not written, in your remembrance. You will understand what is not said, forewarned is forearmed, and having understanding of the Lord, His will and ways, and the word.

Of course growth happens at all times in the Lord, we progress from tests and trials along the way, growing in understanding and perseverance, wisdom and knowledge.
I say all this because I knew this was all coming, because I love the Lord and He speaks messages to my heart in one package uploaded to my heart. It is truly a complete packet of knowledge, a real revelation of understanding that is quite mind blowing.

That is called blessing! The more of these packages you receive, the More you need, more of Him. God is so much more addicting than anything life has to offer us. In Him is Life, real loving life is found!
No matter what we go through, He is there! Holding us up, moving us, as long as we allow Him the reigns of our life, He will see us through it!

Tests are hard, but the reward is a closer walk with Him.
I don’t know about anyone else bt I myself want to serve Him with every ounce I have within and without me to give. Hot because I am doing extraordinary works, because that’s not what i am talking about. It is because I want to be pleasing to the Father. i want to be a sweet odor before His nostrils.

My life is my only thing I have to give Him, and this is exactly what He wants from us, our life! Every part of our lives is sacrificed to Him, because this is the only thing we have to give Him back for His extraordinary love.
I want to love God as much as He loves me, or die trying! I know I can never ever achieve that kind of love, but I am surely going to give it the best I’ve got.
We are to live a life of complete sacrifice of self and to self. Die each day to yourself, by picking up your cross, and deciding to die to self and live through Christ, who lives through us!

Allow Him to work in your every part of you, be His body mind, and soul. You cannot go wrong by giving Him yourself from the top of your head to the soles of your feet and everything in between, be His!

If you don’t live with His Presence, every moment of every day of your life, why would He then want to have His every moment near you who could not sacrifice yourself to Him, for eternity?

Sold out is what the Lord our God is looking for. All His all the time every day every night no matter what you are doing in life at work at home in the car at the store, with friends, still be His bride!

A Bride is always looking to please her man, this keeps the honeymoon faze going for pretty much two years. But we are to be the bride of the Lord, every second of every moment of every day!!! We look to please our man, and the great thing is? The husband is so appreciative of the Brides love for Him and devotion to want to please Him, He does the same thing for her.

Our relationship with the Lord goes only as deep as we make it to be. If we are aloof He will be aloof. If we are shy, He will be shy of us. If we are angry? He will be angry with us.

I will only make my relationship with the Lord deeper closer and clearer every day. I am not shy to say He is my Lord and king, I shout it practically. I want everyone everywhere to love the Lord our God, as much as He loves us.
We would see an amazing thing take place if there was revival of the fear and love and devotion to the Lord that we should have, without being told by anyone, because we should be in the word to the nth degree. Eating the word, swallowing it whole, gulps of it!

We need to live in the truth fully, or we are not His. He has two churches in the book of Revelation that He has no rebuke for5 churches He tells repent or else he will take away their part from the kingdom of God.
Of the two churches that there was no rebuke for? One of them will suffer greatly in the end times. Many will be jailed and many will be killed. One church is so deeply devoted to God that she will walk unscathed, through the tribulation, the church of Philadelphia.

I asked the Father show me Lord this church of Philadelphia, what do these people look like? How do we live this life to be protected through the tribulation? He said Psalm 91! I read it, I cried! It is not a long read, it is something that should have each word savored, and weighed carefully, for the full measure to sink in, of these amazing promises of God, to His deeply devoted Bride, who lives in the secret place of the Lord.

Man that was a run on sentence! But it needed to be said that way.

He showed me a great vision one night of those walking in His shadow, and how evil could not even see them, but the second they looked out, they took their eyes off Jesus? Evil saw them peeking out, and snatched them up, ate them up!! It was a horrifying vision, part of the worst one i have ever had.

I want to learn now how to walk in Him so deeply, that I am hidden from evil! That takes devotion to His every desire of you. Which church of the 7 in Revelation do you spiritually fit into?

Are you just barely scraping by on the fringes of a relationship with Him? Maybe you are into Him a lot, but are doing things no pure deeply living in Him child would do?
Or are you the laodicean church who says eh we are secure we know no way to lose out on God i said a prayer i’m good i have need of nothing i am rich in Him, whom He will spit out of His mouth?

Examine those churches see what they are like, and then choose the church you want to fit into spiritually, and pray to be of that church!!

Learn the word of the Lord people for yourselves. No man’s understanding is the same as yours. Our personal relationship with God is our own tailor made for us, each individual! We are all different and unique and think differently, but God reads our thoughts all the time.

God knows how to reach you so deeply so tenderly you can’t help but fall in love with Him, and be devoted to Him entirely, and walk in a security that cannot be shaken. His love surrounding you coming out of your pores, towards other people and yourself? There is no feeling on earth that can come close to touching that feeling.

We do not live by feelings But when God gives you feelings of a certain kind, man oh man it’s always earth shattering, and addicting. I MUST HAVE MORE!!

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

Parable Of The Ten Virgins Explained

posted by PrayerWarrior

Let’s first take a look at the verses we are going to be speaking about here. I pray that someone somewhere will get the message the Lord intended here. Especially one or many who believe in a pre tribulation rapture. This is a story of endurance and patience. Not one of Christians and non Christians as some suggest. These are all Christians being spoken of here. But five are the foolish ones, who did not endure till the end. They did not get filled up with knowledge and wisdom,they had some, but stopped short of the full preparation. When a Bride get’s ready for her groom she sometimes takes years, or a year most often to plan her wedding. There is nothing that is left out of the plans The Bride does not stop when half way finished with her plans. No she works her tail off, weeks and months on end to make all things right and have it all exactly perfect.

It is no different for us Christians. We are to go till the end. Until our Groom meets us. If we give up half way to the finish line then we have done it all for nothing. It would be as though we never began the race in the first place. We are told hundreds of times,throughout the word, he who endures till the end, shall be saved. How can one expect to be saved unless they run the full race? We are to give it every ounce of what we have daily, nightly, weekly,monthly, and yearly Until He comes. We are to occupy,meaning we are to be about the kings business, so when He comes He sees that we have indeed been made ready, that we have been doing our part of the deal so to speak.Salvation is not a one way thing. We have a huge part in our own walk with the Lord. If we stop walking with Him then we have been lost and it was all for nothing. There are many verses that explain this straight forward.If you are half way in the Lord and half way in the world, then you are none of His. He is all about My way or the highway honey!

Ok here are the verses the only place that tells the parable of the Virgins,Matthew 25:

1 “At that time the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. 2 Five of them were foolish and five were wise. 3 The foolish ones took their lamps but did not take any oil with them. Preparation,stamina,perseverance. 4 The wise ones, however, took oil in jars along with their lamps. they took knowledge, wisdom and were prepared. 5 The bridegroom was a long time in coming, (No pre tribulation rapture,He tarries that all who are coming to the Lord, will come) and they all became drowsy and fell asleep. 6 “At midnight the cry rang out: ‘Here’s the bridegroom! Come out to meet him!’

7 “Then all the virgins woke up and trimmed their lamps. 8 The foolish ones said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil; our lamps are going out. (Help us we do not know what to do,we were unprepared for the wait, the darkness got to us and we lost our way.) 9“‘No,’ they replied, ‘there may not be enough for both us and you. Instead, go to those who sell oil and buy some for yourselves.(we cannot help you to see wisdom and truth and have knowledge)’10 “But while they were on their way to buy the oil,(on their way to learning what they needed to be ready and to have stamina) the bridegroom arrived. The virgins who were ready went in with him to the wedding banquet. And the door was shut.11 “Later the others also came. ‘Lord, Lord,’ they said, ‘open the door for us!’ 12 “But he replied, ‘Truly I tell you, I don’t know you.’

( I thought I knew you, but my sheep know my voice and they listen to me John 10:27,this is stated three times in John 10. The reason He would not know you, is because you did not listen to His words that were speaking truth to you,and preparing you, in the word, Instead you listened to strangers,and in those verses in John 10 it says ( my own would never follow a stranger! )

Those who believe it a pre tribulation rapture are not mentally spiritually or otherwise preparing for the darkness to come. They are not putting extra oil aside for the times coming because they believe they will not be here to endure it so therefore they are the picture of the foolish virgins.When the time is here and they are facing the terrors and the horrors they believed themselves to not be present for,their going to experience burn out rather quickly. They will have no ability to keep running the race, they will be unable to see their way clearly through the darkness, because they will be unprepared to withstand all the fiery darts hurled at them. And there will be darts flying at them from every angle. They will be shocked into immobility! With their understanding being why be worried? We are not to be here,the groom will not tarry He is coming any second.

when I read these verses, I get this same feeling from the Holy Spirit every time. That this is the preparation for the tribulation,the wise having prepared for it in advance, and the foolish not having prepared one drop,and their love waxing cold,towards the Lord,and their fellow brothers and sister. I believe some will actually accuse the Lord of lying to them and therefore will accept the mark, and will be the very apostates spoken of by Paul in the letters to the Thessalonians. I believe the oil outside of ourselves is actually the Holy Spirit He replenishes us as we go through tumultuous situations. He sustains us and whispers the word to our hearts that we already know such as say 1 Peter 4:1,2 1 Therefore, since Christ suffered in his body, arm yourselves also with the same attitude, because whoever suffers in the body is done with sin. 2 As a result, they do not live the rest of their earthly lives for evil human desires, but rather for the will of God.

And 1 Pet 4: 12-19 12 Dear friends, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal that has come on you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. 13 But rejoice inasmuch as you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed. 14 If you are insulted because of the name of Christ, you are blessed, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you. 15 If you suffer, it should not be as a murderer or thief or any other kind of criminal, or even as a meddler. 16 However, if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but praise God that you bear that name. 17 For it is time for judgment to begin with God’s household; and if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who do not obey the gospel of God? 18 And, “If it is hard for the righteous to be saved, what will become of the ungodly and the sinner?19 So then, those who suffer according to God’s will should commit themselves to their faithful Creator and continue to do good.

I take a lot of flack from some family and some friends, for my outlook on the end times. I do not rightly care! Seriously I look towards that Hope the Blessed hope, with every ounce of me. Filled with joy at the prospect of it. That is not doom and gloom friends it is the fulfillment of all we have been walking with the Lord for. It is that everlasting glorious appearing of our savior that we might be made into perfect beings immortal and Christ like. Never to ever worry about sinning again. What is gloom and doom about that I ask? We are told through out the NT that we keep going until the end, time and again we are told we must keep going even though we will experience fiery trials. Even though we will go through some times where we say Lord help me I cannot do this one more minute. Then we are reminded I can do all things let me type that again, I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me. We in ourselves could never withstand all that is coming. So that is why we need that extra oil. The Lord has provided the truth to us and those who wish to adhere to the whole truth, and not hear what their itching ears wish to hear only. We are prepared at all times through His word for every single thing to come upon us.

We need to be ready in season and out of season,and filled with knowledge wisdom and strength that only comes from the Lord (The Word). Jesus suffered and each and every one of His apostles suffered. They were all of them persecuted,and all but one was killed for their witness of Christ! But Though John was not killed by anyone and died of old age, he was persecuted. We cannot think it a strange thing to think of the chances of us being persecuted to death. We are told through out the scriptures it is going to happen. There will be no excuse for those who are unprepared! And mere humans cannot give you that extra oomf your going to need, our words will sound hollow and meaningless to one who is suffering immeasurably. I don’t even care if you have decided I am nut’s for telling you this. My only hope is that some of you will retain this warning in your memory, so that when you are going through the hellish ordeals promised us, you will think back and maybe, just maybe, not become the apostate that is fully expected of believers in that time. Unbelievers cannot become apostate! Get that out of your head right away.

Matthew 5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers, For they shall be called sons of God. 10 Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 11 “Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. 12 Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you. Time and time again we are told we will be persecuted. How does one come up with your getting away scott free?. How does one for one moment believe themselves better than the apostles? Each and every apostle as I said earlier was persecuted severely! Are you considering yourself better than the apostles,to not have to withstand,to not have to persevere? He who perseveres to the end he shall be saved.

Matt 24:13 The funny thing is Jesus through out the testimony of the end times,tells us we will be persecuted, we will be killed, we will be turned over by those we love. And no one denies Jesus is speaking of the tribulation here,yet they destroy, (to rip apart, to make useless.) the whole thing by insisting He is not speaking to everyone. That He is only speaking to the Jews. I have to point out one more time here God makes no distinction between the Jews and the gentiles. Galatians 3:28 says it all when it comes to that. We when we get saved as just like Jews. We get grafted into the olive tree. So if the branches of the olive tree can be ripped off how much worse for we who have been grafted in if we make a fool of the Lord,and His ultimate sacrifice? Let me show you the verse I speak of here.

Romans 11:16 For if the first fruit is holy, the lump is also holy; and if the root is holy, so are the branches. 17 And if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive tree, were grafted in among them, and with them became a partaker of the root and fatness of the olive tree, 18 do not boast against the branches. But if you do boast, remember that you do not support the root, but the root supports you.

19 You will say then, “Branches were broken off that I might be grafted in.” 20 Well said. Because of unbelief they were broken off, and you stand by faith. Do not be haughty, but fear. 21 For if God did not spare the natural branches, He may not spare you either. 22 Therefore consider the goodness and severity of God: on those who fell, severity; but toward you, goodness, if you continue in His goodness. Otherwise you also will be cut off. 23 And they also, if they do not continue in unbelief, will be grafted in, for God is able to graft them in again. 24 For if you were cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and were grafted contrary to nature into a cultivated olive tree, how much more will these, who are natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree?

25 For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. 26 And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written:

The fullness of the Gentiles dear brothers and sisters, is not until the very last person who is not a Jew has been saved. Jesus would never go and celebrate while a part of His bride, His promised one, or ones are still being persecuted and ripped apart. Does it make sense that the party starts with out the full body being there? The wedding feast does not begin until the bride in full regalia walks in. The bride being every Christian who ever lived and every Jew who walked in the will of the Lord, since time began,made pure by her fiery trials. Made white by her acceptance of Her Lord,and washed clean by His very blood. We must be as pure and chaste as is possible to receive the prize,our Lord and Savior Our Groom!

The Lord our God would not give His son a less than pure bride. If a girl was not pure when she came to the marriage bed that marriage was annulled. Made void and her embarrassment was complete, because everyone would then know she was impure. She would be made ashamed! In the middle ages they would actually display the maidens bloody sheets out the window to show she had been pure. We cannot expect that the Lord would ever consider giving His son a bride, who still had hang ups and could not love even her enemies. We cannot expect our perfect Lord to wish any other than the purest most devoted to His ways,bride. The tribulation is to test and separate the goats from the sheep,the thorns from the wheat. Let us not forget that the Lord told us in Matthew 13:30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.

That sounds exactly like at the end. There is no two harvests there is but one,and that is the last day. Revelation chapter 14 verses 12 through 18 show us the harvesting,with the Lord our Savior our King of Kings,sitting on the clouds that He just rode up on,where the whole world is seeing Him and the trumpet has already sounded and here is the shout of the arch angel shouting reap for the harvest is ripe for reaping. Which says God looked upon the earth and sees His own reflection looking back at Him from His children’s faces. They have been purified through the fiery trials,the dross has been drawn off, they now reflect their Lord,and it is good.

God Bless you all,Love in Christ Jesus,Tammy
