The War In Heaven

posted by PrayerWarrior

Satan Thrown Out of Heaven
I want to address the war that will be taking place in heaven, at the midway mark of the 7 last years. At that time at the 3.5 year time mark, the antichrist will stand in the temple and call himself God. I am quite sure as well that this is when the war in heaven takes place and I plan in this article, and video to show just why I understand it this way.The war in heaven is not a huge amount of information but it has all the points we need to pay attention to, in it. Jesus makes reference to it in Matt 24 and also makes reference to Daniel’s prophecies. I will show how they correlate with one another.For most bible references I use the NKJV, and the KJV. I have used the Amplified bible and the NASB.

 

Matt 24:15 “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place” (whoever reads, let him understand), 16 “then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. 17 Let him who is on the housetop not go down to take anything out of his house. 18 And let him who is in the field not go back to get his clothes. 19 But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! 20 And pray that your flight may not be in winter or on the Sabbath. 21 For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. See Jesus says the same exact thing as Daniel, about this being a time like has never been before.

 

This is all when Michael stands up. I want to look at this from Pauls perspective as well. He was also taken to heaven and shown the end He tells us this in 2 Corinthians 12. 2. But let’s look at  Thess 2:3-7 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshiped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God. Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. Or till Michael stands up to satan and throws him out of Heaven. Until the time of the war in heaven the antichrist will not be revealed. No one will know for sure who he is. Let’s go on with Rev 12.

 

Revelation 12:7-9 And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought, 8 but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer. 9 So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. So now satan is come to the earth at this time. Will he inhabit his antichrist? I am Not sure really, but we know that there is great power in the antichrist, he deceives many, and we know he comes back to life around this time too. I imagine it is a parody of Christs resurrection as well. Knowing that satan loves making a mockery of all God has done, helps me to believe this is the case.

 

Revelation 13:11-14 let’s look at the deadly wound healed on the beast. 11 Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon.<<<(The false Prophet, looks like a lamb the Hadith = book of eschatology of Muslims, calls this person Jesus) 12 And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. 13 He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men. 14 And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived. This is all at the halfway point of the last 7 years. The oblations or sacrifices are stopped when the armies surround jerusalem, then the antichrist calls himself God in the temple.

 

Let’s go on though as we were, and finish up with Chapter 12 of Revelation. Rev 12:10-12,  Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, “Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down. 11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death. 12 Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time.” In this I see Jesus words to flee from Jerusalem when the a/c stands in the temple calling himself god and demanding worship.

 

The Woman Persecuted Rev 12:13-17
13 Now when the dragon saw that he had been cast to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male Child (Unbelieving Israel). 14 But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent. 15 So the serpent spewed water out of his mouth like a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away by the flood. 16 But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the flood which the dragon had spewed out of his mouth. 17 And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God (To love Himself and each other) and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.This is also spoken of (the protection of this woman) in verse 6 of chp 12 of Rev. 6 Then the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days.

 

I also believe that is when the seals begin to be opened. The antichrist will be in power for a short 3.5 years, or 1260 days, the same amount of time that the Jews are nourished and hidden in the wilderness. The antichrist the rider on the white horse, seems to be a man of peace and for non Christians he will be, but for Jews and Christians woe to us woe. The antichrist comes on a white horse with a bow and no arrows in his quiver.  He comes conquering and to conquer, he will have that power only when he is resurrected from the dead by satan. He will have that power only because Michael is no longer holding back satans power. Once the war in heaven happens Michael is no longer restraining evil, or keeping it at bay.

 

Now in that set of verses  Rev 12:6 and 12:14 I see clearly a remnant being hidden and protected in the desert, or wilderness, or wherever it may be that God has in mind to hide the remnant, for the 3.5 years of the great tribulation, as is seen clearly in verse 6, and 14 she is cared for. God has always had a remnant of Jews always has and always will, till there is no need. It all has to do with the promise to Abraham to make more people than the sands of the sea, through him. Then the rest who hold the testimony of Jesus, that is Christians that satan goes to make war with. This is when the mark of the beast will be implemented, and carried out with deadly force. We will look at those other verses that explain all of this a little later. Many say no the Jews cannot be alive and or will have come to Christ. No not those hidden away in the desert my friends. When they see Christ coming on the clouds with power and great glory their eyes will be fully opened.

 

I have a point to make here and it is about the two commandments God has for us in the new covenant.  (Jesus tells us that love covers a multitude of sins in, Matt 22:37-40 Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.” See just two covers it all. because if you Love God your going to do all you can to please Him and if you love your fellow man, you are doing what you are commanded to do as well. Love will not bring harm of any kind to another.)

 

I have seen that many people cannot make a distinction here in this set of verses, Rev 12:6 and 14, but to me it is very clear and simple to understand. God allows the saints those who accepted Christ, and who follow His commandments to love God and others as we love ourselves, these are they who are Christians, as we began to be called in the book of Acts. What does Christ-ians mean? It means little Christs. We were first called Christians in Acts 11:19-26. We will go through fiery trials to be chastened and purified. Paul tells us this truth, that through much tribulation will we enter the KINGDOM OF GOD. Acts 14:22

 

There are plenty of verses that tell us the Jews will mourn as though over their first born.  Zech 12:10 And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced , and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn. They will repent at that time. Then also we know from many verses that the Jews will be those who mostly repopulate the earth in the millennial kingdom. Look at this set of facts. Jews will not be raptured because they do not believe in Christ. God told Abraham it was his direct seed who will populate the earth to more than the sands of the sea. Someone has to be alive for this, and whom God has blinded on purpose, (which we know till the times of the gentiles be fulfilled they are blinded) He will not hold them as accountable as if they were allowed to see and totally rejected Him anyway.

 

I believe because they repent and mourn to the very core of them, those whom the Lord has hidden away in that time, will be forgiven and taught the ways of the Messiah. God blinded them on purpose until the time of the gentiles be fulfilled. Romans 11:25-27: For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles be come in. And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins. Paul also warned the Romans against being lifted up in pride because they had been favored by God with salvation. He explained the mystery that the blindness of Israel would not last forever. He told them that this condition would only last until “the fullness of the Gentiles be come in.” Then he explained that all of Israel, that existed when the fullness of the Gentiles was completed, would be saved. He went on in the chapter to explain that God first concluded the Gentiles in unbelief so that He might have mercy on the Gentiles. He then explained that the Jews are now consigned to unbelief, so that He might have mercy on the Jews. He summarizes his discourse in Romans 11:32 – For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all. Revelation 1:7 also speaks of they who pierced him mourning.

 

I want to give a little background on who is the antichrist what area he will come from and it is not Rome! First of all the Romans did rule for a long time a very large tract of the middle east, but it was not they who destroyed the temple, it was the Flavians. In Daniel, it speaks of the man who will come and he is a northern middle east personality. So Turkish, Assyrian area is how I see it. The Assyrian from the tribe of Dan is how it is explained by some people, and this just rings true in my spirit. We are told in Genesis that Dan is a snake an adder, and comes from the North. Let’s look at that. “Dan shall judge his people, as one of the tribes of Israel. 17 Dan shall be a serpent by the way, an adder in the path, that biteth the horse heels, so that his rider shall fall backward. 18 I have waited for thy salvation, O Lord.” (Genesis 49:16-18)

 

Then let’s look at some more verses that explain this a little further. “There is one come out of thee,[Nineveh] that imagineth evil against the Lord, a wicked counsellor.” (Nahum 1:11) Then “And this man shall be the peace, when the Assyrian shall come into our land: and when he shall tread in our palaces, then shall we raise against him seven shepherds, and eight principal men.” (Micah 5:5) then in Daniel we see he comes from the North.”Therefore the he goat waxed very great: and when he was strong, the great horn was broken; and from it came up four notable ones toward the four winds of heaven. 9 And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land.” (Daniel 8:8-9)

 

The Prophet Jeremiah also said that the antichrist would invade through the tribe of Dan. “The snorting of his horses was heard from Dan: the whole land trembled at the sound of the neighing of his strong ones; for they are come, and have devoured the land, and all that is in it; the city, and those that dwell therein.” (Jeremiah 8:16) We know this has not ocurred as of yet, it shows up nowhere in History. Also many people believe that the war in heaven has occurred already, but it has not as satan still goes back and forth accusing the brethren before God. Also the book of Revelation none of it has occurred as of yet with the exception maybe and this is just a maybe, as we do not know for sure as of yet, if the Judgment of the Ekklesia, the house of God, has begun. I personally think that it has been happening over the last year as all of the hard core true Christians I know, have been going through the toughest times of their lives. Physical, emotional, spiritual, and financial woes have plagued those who seek the Lord diligently. Those who study to show themselves approved and who know that there are wolves in sheeps clothing leading the many straight down the path of hell.

 

I am continually astonished at those who refuse to see the word of God just for itself, but instead seek out men and their interpretation of the word. I have had an argument with a man recently on youtube, who just cannot get it through his head, that I refuse to listen to men, and when I gave him the verse in 1 John 2:27 which says that we have no need that men teach us, he wrote a whole entire article on his blog, trying to disabuse people from knowing that they were anointed with the same Holy Spirit as any of the teachers in this modern day so called church. I have disdain for the word church because it is a misinterpreted word. Ekklesia is the word used for church and the word Ekklesia in Greek means called out ones chosen, or the elect.

 

We are all to be anointed and made into disciples as the apostles were doing. They were first discipled by Christ, then they were told to go out and make disciples of the nations, that is our great commission. Each and every person who is in the Lord and believes on the truth, are disciples, and it is all of our job to go out and make disciples of the world. How can we do that if we are not imbued with the power of the Holy Spirit, the power that raised Christ from the dead, ourselves? The dictionaries of today make no distinction between apostle and or disciple. The Greek language however makes a distinction. Strongs Greek for Apostolos #652 a messenger, envoy, delegate, one commissioned by another to represent him in some way, especially a man sent out by Jesus Christ Himself to preach the Gospel; an apostle.

 

Then we have the Greek word for Disciple, Strongs Greek #3101 mathétés a learner, pupil. These in turn go about learning the ways of the Lord and then go out teaching others the same things they learned. Healing casting out demons speaking in other tongues, prophesying, words of knowledge wisdom discerning spirits, and so on and so forth. We have a wonderful brother in Christ named Torben, Torben is taking brand new disciples and making them into disciplers themselves right away. You can find Torbens amazing truth speaking teaching videos on you tube at The Last Reformation channel. In the times coming Daniel tells us 12:3 Those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament, and those who turn many to righteousness like the stars forever and ever. Again I have to say that we none of us can be disciples nor make disciples if the Holy Spirit is not here in the end times.

 

Also let’s look at Daniel 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, Every one who is found written in the book. So I want to understand completely and I want all of you who hear to understand as well. Michael is the restrainer, there is no doubt in my mind, because as soon as he stands up, there will be times of trouble the likes of which has never been before. Michael we know from Daniels earlier writings, is a great prince he is the most powerful arch angel, and it is his job to watch over the people of the Lord, that does include Christians people.

 

As soon as we become born again, we are grafted into the olive tree. We know when He stands up when the antichrist shows himself as god and demands worship the mark will be implemented on the earth. There will be no buying or selling without that mark of the beast, we will be hunted down and many killed. We will know that the war in heaven has occurred because satan comes down and takes out his wrath on the inhabitants of the earth. He chases after the Israeli’s first and when that does not work, because they are supernaturally protected, then the saints who hold to the testimony of Jesus Christ will be in the sites of satan. This is very important to us as we will certainly be here for it.

 

Normally I like to find all of the old testament scriptures to go along with the New testament scriptures to my amazement though there really are no Old Testament scriptures to go along with the book of Revelation and the war that takes place in heaven. I know that the war in heaven has not taken place as of yet for a couple of reasons, but the biggest reason is that Jesus told John that these are things which are yet to take place and that was after Jerusalem and the temple were already destroyed. John was given the Revelation sometime after all the other apostles were dead and that has to have been after 86 AD. Some say he died around 100 AD some say he died around 90 AD. We know it was a while after the others. Rev 1:1-3 1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show His servants—things which must shortly take place. And He sent and signified it by His angel to His servant John, 2 who bore witness to the word of God, and to the testimony of Jesus Christ, to all things that he saw. 3 Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written in it; for the time is near.

 

See those things to come!!! But notice something else in those verses. Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy. The only book in the whole bible that comes with a blessing. It must be awfully important to the Lord that we read and adhere to it. We must know the end from the beginning or we will not be prepared and or ready for what is to come. Prophecy is the most important aspect of the word of God, for it is our hope contained in the prophecies. Not only that but we are told in Revelation also that 19:10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

 

If you take the spirit of prophecy and eat it up as John did literally, it tastes sweet but makes bitter the tummy, but you will not easily forget it! We tend to remember those things that hurt our bellies. Normally though we stay away from those things, let us never stray far from the prophecies contained in the word for there in lies the spirit of Jesus the spirit of prophecy. I have people ask me all the time but how can you just study prophecy so much and only that? But honestly how do you only study prophecy? I mean in order to study the prophecies you must study the entire word! It is impossible to study only prophecy. In order to get to the prophecies you must study from one end of the word to the other! So you get to know everything in between as well.

 

Also there is some new false garbage going on by of all people John MacArthur and Brannon Howse, that you can take the mark of the beast and still go to heaven and have eternity with Christ! I beg to differ as does the book of Revelation. The book of Revelation in chapter 14:9-11 clearly states,9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, 10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: 11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

 

Blessings  to you all in Christ,

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!

Endurance And What It Means In The Bible.

posted by PrayerWarrior

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

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

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

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

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

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

Let’s go further on into Matt 24.
The Great Tribulation
15 “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place” (whoever reads, let him understand), 16 “then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. 17 Let him who is on the housetop not go down to take anything out of his house. 18 And let him who is in the field not go back to get his clothes. 19 But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! 20 And pray that your flight may not be in winter or on the Sabbath. 21 For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. 22 And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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