Every Seed After Its Own Kind

posted by PrayerWarrior

Let’s talk about every seed after it’s own kind. The other day while speaking to a very nice, albeit deceived individual, about Christ being God, The Lord said very quietly, every seed after its kind! So I began to study this subject a little more in depth. Let’s go back to Genesis and move forward from there into our times here and now, the time of AD.

Genesis 1:11-12 KJV 11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.
12 And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good. See here how every animal after it’s kind? See how every seed of it’s kind? They can only recreate themselves, nothing when added together can make a different species altogether unless you get into Gene splicing then you are playing God and this cannot be done!

24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so. 25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good. Every living creature after its own kind!

26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. 27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

Now God made man after His own Image, but notice how He did not say He took and made man by His own seed? He made mankind in His own image, not by His seed, and we will see something else here that becomes important as we read on. After the fall God said Gen 3:15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. Notice the Lord is talking about the virgin who will be with child? It does not say that about the virgin but of her seed He shall bruise the head of satan.

I want to show a bit more about the seed, so let’s go on over to Gen 4:25 And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another {seed} instead of Abel, whom Cain slew. Man’s seed, Adam’s seed was born into sin, but God’s seed planted into the virgin was not a man of Adamic fashion, but God’s own seed.

If every seed is created to bear seed of it’s kind, and recreate itself to it’s own kind, then God’s seed must according to God’s word and own swearing by Himself, create God. This is why when Jesus claimed to he and the Father are one, the Pharisees picked up stones to kill Him. {John 10:31} Prompting Jesus to ask for what of my miracles and wonders and good deeds do you kill me? They proclaimed not for these things but for saying you are God which is blaspheme!

The pharisees understood that Jesus was claiming to be God, because He is the only son of God ever made. He was seed of God’s seed, and no man had part in creating Jesus in the womb of the virgin. Thus they wanted to kill Him. Also Jesus saying that He was I am, those also showed the pharisees He was indeed claiming to be God. For I am is whom Moses proclaimed, told him to go out and lead God’s captives free out of Egypt. Jesus was known before he was born. He was known to be the son of God the son being of God’s seed and every seed of it’s own kind produces it’s own kind.

1 Cor 15:36-39 Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die: 37 And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that body that shall be, but bare grain, it may chance of wheat, or of some other grain: 38 But God giveth it a body as it hath pleased him, and to every seed his own body. 39 All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds.

Now those verses previous, they make us go to another thing altogether and I will explain how my brain jumps to this area of bible study. That is the death of the seed, in order that life may come from it. The seed must go in the ground and die, it will come alive in a whole different form, than previously formed. So also shall we die, in baptism, and raise up out of the death to self and our old ways, and be raised up new in Christ Jesus!Then we can truly say it is no longer i who lives but Christ who lives in me and through me. Gal 2:20

We like the plant’s and like the Lord, when He died as a man, was raised up into a new man, one whose life is eternal, immortal is what He now is, and will make us one day! Only though if we die to self and the life of an earth dweller, who is only sinful all of the time. We instead when we come out of the death of baptism into the resurrected life of Christ, now live as righteous holy people. We then are called the righteousness of God through Christ.

These are all bible verses, I just am not naming them all, as i hope to prompt others to be more curious, so as to go and study this all for themselves. The Lord writing His word upon the tablet of our hearts, is good and a needful thing. We all need to be praying toward this end that he writes the word upon our hearts that we may know it and have the answers needed for people to come to know the Lord.

We are to go out into the world and make disciples of the whole world. Making them the same kind of seed we are as well, and that is now the children of God, through Christ. Christ is God in man form and there is plenty in the Old and new Testaments to make us know that indeed Christ was preached and prophesied about all through the whole word of God.

He gave me to know without question, that He Christ is indeed God as He was not born of man’s seed but of God’s seed which God can and would only make a God. Jesus was with Him and was the word, and was indeed God, John 1:1, it does not say like God, It says He was God, how does God then stop being God? Because He became flesh? He clothed Himself with mankind, for He is spirit, as a Spirit that cannot be looked upon God would then have to remedy that, so that He could come and be face to face with mankind, He had to separate Himself turning Himself into seed, but still maintaining every part of everything, He had to keep Himself in the heavens as well.

God is more than we could ever imagine, and just because people have issues with understanding the Infiniteness of God, does not change the fact that God put Himself here as a man, so that he could live a sin free perfect life, and die a spotless, sinless perfect lamb of God, to free us from the bondage of sin, and make us whole through himself, bringing us back to a right relationship with Him, such as was before the fall of Adam and Eve.

Through Christ we become new creatures. Brand new as though we were just born. ALL of our past sins, no matter what they were, even marriage and divorce, are wiped away. Dead men have no sin. Dead men are incapable of sin. But if you turn back to your sinful life, then you have lost all of your salvation. God would never take your salvation away from you, you choose to give it up! We do not give up free will when we become Christs, it is a conscious effort every day to give ourselves up, and instead walk in God’s will and ways for us.

If you detach yourself from the vine you are then dead. You will not wither immediately, but will instead wither slowly until you can no longer be recognized by the brethren as one of the brethren. I have seen many preachers these days who began good, but then were wooed away from truth by money. Now they speak lies to tickle ears so that people will pay them well and they can have an amazing life right here on earth. But the Lord says they have their rewards on earth and there are none for them in eternity.

Pick up your cross and follow me was said even before He went to the Cross, in Luke 9:23. We must deny ourselves. We must die to all selfish thoughts desires, and actions. We must deny ourselves and proclaim Him. We must bring Him honor and glory. This life is not about us, our hopes dreams, will and ways, for those are only evil all of the time. We must follow after Christ, we must listen to Him only. My sheep know my voice and they follow me, and I know them.

I always hear people say I feel, I think, I know, I want, it is not about our thoughts feelings or anything else, it is all about our love of Him, to the exclusion of everyone and everything else, and the love of others to not care how we will be persecuted for our witness of Him. It is all about our witness to Him and of Him. We will be persecuted one way or another so be Bold and speak about the seed dying and being born anew. Speak about Him and his will and ways. Warn people in and out of season. Be prepared to tell of him and suffer for it.

Most of all Die you seed, and be turned into a tree who is loaded with good fruit! Don’t despise the pruning, which makes us fruitful, and multiplies those of the same kind. When it hurts it means it is for our good! We work together, as is shown here in Corinthians.

1 Cor 3:6-8 I planted the seed and Apollos watered it, but God made it grow. 7 So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow. 8 He who plants and he who waters are one in purpose, and each will be rewarded according to his own labor.

A Thorn In The Flesh

posted by PrayerWarrior

What was Pauls Thorn in the flesh? Well I can tell you even as a child I knew a thorn in ones side was not physical. It was speaking in metaphors. I heard it most often from women saying oh that daughter, or oh that son, that one there is a real thorn in my side. They were not speaking of anything physical their children were doing to them. They were speaking of the troubles that particular child put them through. Worries and fears for their child was what they were speaking of.

Paul was not married and had no children so let’s look at bible verses in other books of the word to find out just what a thorn in the side or the flesh was speaking about elsewhere. We know the Lord is always the same and the Holy Spirit gave utterance to all those who wrote the word. So in that vien let us continue on knowing the Lord does not change now or ever. What He has said and done before He will always say and do again. I can promise you this subject is one of the harder ones to study, there are simply not enough people who know about the bible verses that speak of thorns in the flesh, old or new testament.

Smith Wigglesworth himself said many times over, to people who claimed to have a thorn in their flesh, like Pauls, Oh so your so holy and so filled with the power of the Lord that you need something to keep you from being prideful? Oh how I had to chuckle at that. The man was renouned for the ability to reach the hardest hearts for the Lord. He was known for the amazing healing sermons. May I suggest to any who have some serious pain, and or made up ailment that was introduced in the last twenty or so years, go read the complete works of Smith Wigglesworth? The Lord would have you healed of this!

First let’s look at Pauls account of his thorn in the flesh, which he clearly says is spiritual. 2 Cor 12:7-9 And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure. 8 For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me. 9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Now do not be fooled by the word infirmities, You can be mentally infirm, and spiritually infirm.

You can have a buffet that is spiritual which causes you much problems by reminding you of past sins, ad nauseum. I have had this on a few occassions and I just keep rebuking, or binding the mouth of the spirit. Satan loves to remind us of our past, keeping us there is a good thing in the mind of a demon, because living in the past does not afford a good look at the present. The Lord wants us living in the present. A good way to get rid of thoughts of the past is to do what Paul says in Phil 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Now then let’s take a look at Old Testament verses containing a thorn in the flesh. Well in this case a thorn in the eyes. Joshua 23:13 “Know for a certainty that the Lord your God will no more drive out any of these nations from before you; but they shall be snares and traps unto you, and scourges in your sides, and thorns in your eyes, until you perish from off this good land which the LORD your God hath given you”. Well lookie here this means bothersome anoying problematic. This is not physical maladies, But that they would cause them all kinds of troubles. Read the verses before and after to get the understanding of what the Lord was saying here.

Let’s go on then, in Numbers 33:55 “But if you will not drive out the inhabitants of the land from before you; then it shall come to pass, that those which you let remain of them shall be pricks in your eyes, and thorns in your sides, and shall vex you in the land wherein you dwell”. Vex means = To annoy, as with petty importunities; to bother. So can you see this was something that bothered Paul vexed him annoyed him. I cannot personally imagine or consider even the possibility that the Lord would have a vessel of healing and all manner of spiritual gifts to be plagued by an illness himself. No Paul was not blind nor did he have a limp or any such thing.

Paul would merely hold a napkin and it be brought to ones bedside and they were instantly healed. Now that is amazingly awesome. People would work to stand in the Apostles (all of them) shadows, and receive healing. To decide your like paul and have to suffer that it is the Lord’s will for you friends is a sad miscalculation. God does not will for His own to suffer but to believe unto healing. Sadly for way too many years it has been taught that the gifts were not present in this life. They are here! It is not even the one who is doing the praying over you whose faith has to be huge, but your own faith will heal you.

Let’s take a look at some of what Jesus Himself said to those whose healing was done due to their own faith. Matt 9:20-22 Matt 9:27-30, according to your faith be it unto you, Mark 5:25-34. Before this in Mark 2:3-5 these friends faith was enough for Jesus to bring a miracle about for the man with the Palsy. I am not writing out all these verses I am told i write entirely too long articles for my site. LOL. I have a lot to say when I write, and I love and live for the word of GOD. Mark 10:52 a blind man heard Jesus was there and was yelling out for His attention. The people told him to quiet down but he yelled all the louder, the Lord restored his site and told him your faith has made you whole.

Matt 15:28 He told the woman her faith had healed her daughter!! Luke 17:19 Your faith has made you whole go thy way. Then in His own home town of Nazareth, Jesus could do no miracles but some petty small oes because they did not believe. They had no faith for healing. Let’s look at that story for a moment. Mark 6:4-6, 4 But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own country, among his own relatives, and in his own house.” 5 Now He could do no mighty work there, except that He laid His hands on a few sick people and healed them. 6 And He marveled because of their unbelief. Then He went about the villages in a circuit, teaching.
No miraculous things for they had no faith.

Now back to the message at hand. The thorn in Pauls flesh. In Judges 2:3 “Wherefore I also said, I will not drive them out from before you; but they shall be as thorns in your sides, and their gods shall be a snare unto you.” See again troublesome, bothersome, annoying but not physical. Let’s look at the word buffet and it’s meaning. To buffet means to strike against repeatedly or to batter, the example best used is the waves buffeted the rocks. We know when one is in the ocean near a rocky outcropping and they are trying to get out of the water the waves crashing into the rocks, and pulling back away, makes it nearly impossible to get out. It would hamper you from achieving your goal of getting out of the water. This spirit that was sent from satan to buffet Paul, was not physical.

One mans report on this says that it was the people the Jews and the gentiles alike, was the problem. I am not sure I agree with that. I think Paul was made of much sterner stuff than that. I know personally with my own son coming against me in every way possible, I have been strengthened by the Lord to guard my heart against the pain of my sons hatred. People who are not my family who come against me, simply do not hold that kind of power to hurt me. I am not after mans approval neither was Paul. Now this is only my opinion and not at all a defining statement, I think Pauls thorn had to do with his past. I can see nothing else that would cause him to ask the Lord to be released from it other than some past sin that the spirits have brought back again and again to the forefront of the mans thoughts.

Now I am not claiming to be wonderful or anything like that, in what I will say next because I know I am nothing at all without the Lord. That all said i have one sin that comes back at me again and again and again. It makes me shake my head and wince every time it comes back to my thoughts. I have begged god over and over to help me get past it, and still it comes again and again. Even though I know I am forgiven it still bites me every so often.

What I do know is what I have prayed many times to the Lord. Lord help me to be humble. Do not allow me to get prideful. I do wonder, if this is the way in which the Lord keeps me from getting all prideful. Don’t get me wrong Ihave pride LOL but my pride is in being used of the Lord. I know I am a tool in His hand, and this gives me pride that He would think to use me. That is the only place I have any kind of pride or also that He shows me truth and no human nor angel can change my mind from what the Lord has shown me! I choose very carefully whom I listen to. I will have to stand before the Lord and explain myself one day. I will have to explain why I believed or did not believe truth or lies.

In weakness we find out how very strong God is and that truly His grace is sufficient to see us through anything we have to go through. I love that saying (no it is not in the bible) if God brought you to it He will bring you through it. It is so true if we but believe. We can do nothing on our but Christ do it through us. It is no longer I who lives but Christ who lives in me! I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. These verses come to mind every time I think on that saying.

Blessings in Christ Jesus!
Tammy

I have been working on this for three months. Every time I read something, another verse or set of verses, came to mind. Every time I read what anyone else has written about this subject, more verses were shown. This study I have found, could really go on forever. I seriously could write a book about this subject. So I have had to cut all I have found down to the most pertinent meaningful verses. I pray that you who reads will receive this with an open heart, to receive truth, as the Lord gave it to me.

Many people argue over the remnant, which will repopulate the millennial kingdom, where it states that the numbers of people in that time, or at the end of it, is numbered more than the sands of the sea! Say what? That is an astronomical number. Anyhow let me back up and say, there are arguments from every camp on who it is that will repopulate the earth. The pre tribulation believers say, it has to be a pre tribulation rapture, because there will not be anyone left who will be alive to populate the earth when Christ comes for Armageddon. I beg to differ! They also say if it was a post tribulation rapture, all the Christians will have been taken up in the rapture so who is left that is human?

The Post tribulation believers have long since had a hard time answering this question. So I set out to prove what the Lord shows in His word is the truth about this. Revelation 12 speaks of some from Israel being protected in the wilderness for the 1260 days of the tribulation. Or as Daniel says, a time times and a half time, as it says the same thing later on in Revelation. The book of Isaiah speaks of the millennial reign and the people who are the remnant that God put’s aside. As do some parts of Joel, Zechariah, Matthew, Isaiah, Zephaniah, Micah, Ezekiel, and Romans as well as many other verses through out the word!

The word says He will gather together after Armageddon, all the peoples from all the nations to Israel. Well those nations that still exist. We know one nation will not exist and I do believe that is America. The Mystery Babylon spoken of in Revelation that is utterly destroyed and also in the book of Jeremiah, chapters 50, and 51! There are going to be those who have not taken the mark. There are those who will survive yes even all of the hell upon this earth. Anarchists are some I believe will refuse to capitulate to being owned and or ruled in such a way. Also we have groups of non Christians who are involved in militias, who will be working hard against the beast system. There is no whole answer put together in the word. It takes a whole lot of study on the subject.

So let’s take a look at chapter 12 of Revelation. Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars. 2 Then being with child, she cried out in labor and in pain to give birth. 3 And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great, fiery red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his heads. 4 His tail drew a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to give birth, to devour her Child as soon as it was born. 5 She bore a male Child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her Child was caught up to God and His throne. 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.

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. 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 and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. I cannot understand how it is that people do not see here that those who are brought into the wilderness are not believing Israel. The rest of her offspring are we who believe in Christ as Messiah. We have been adopted as joint heirs with believing Israel.

So the woman who birthed the Messiah is Israel. There are those in Israel who do not believe that Jesus is the messiah, these are they which will be protected in the wilderness. Now look how in chapter 12 verses 13-17 it speaks of the woman being flown into the place of her hiding and protection for that time times and a half time. He (satan) sends a flood from his mouth to carry off the woman (Israel). Some people say the flood out of his mouth is an army; I am not concerned with that right now. What I want you to look at here though is verse 17. So many do not see the distinction made here. The dragon was enraged at the woman and went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. Why if they who are going into the wilderness, are believers, does it not say so? Why would there be a distinct sentence added, that says a specific thing? Because a distinction has to be made here!

That is Messianic Jews, as well as Gentiles, who are now grafted into the tree. But the woman is unbelieving Israel, she does not have the testimony of Jesus Christ. That seems to be where so many get confused. Now let’s really get down and dirty here, let’s get our hands deep into it. Let us figure this out together. There are those who are gentiles as well, who do not believe in Jesus Christ, they are waiting to see with their own eyes the Lord. I believe they as well as unbelieving Israel will be those who repopulate the earth during the millennium. We already know that we who have been taken up to meet Jesus in the sky, along with our resurrected relatives, will be immortal and therefore cannot make babies.

Let us go back though to Matthew 24, verses that speak of the whole world mourning at the sight of Jesus. Matt 24: 30 Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. They will mourn, those who did not believe that Jesus was and is Messiah. Look at what Isaiah says of those mourners.

Isaiah 61:1-11 “The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me, Because the Lord has anointed Me To preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives,
And the opening of the prison to those who are bound; 2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord,
And the day of vengeance of our God; To comfort all who mourn, 3 To console those who mourn in Zion,
To give them beauty for ashes, The oil of joy for mourning, The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; That they may be called trees of righteousness, The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.” 4 And they shall rebuild the old ruins, they shall raise up the former desolations, And they shall repair the ruined cities, The desolations of many generations.

5 Strangers shall stand and feed your flocks, And the sons of the foreigner Shall be your plowmen and your vinedressers. 6 But you shall be named the priests of the Lord, They shall call you the servants of our God. You shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, and in their glory you shall boast. 7 Instead of your shame you shall have double honor, and instead of confusion they shall rejoice in their portion. Therefore in their land they shall possess double; Everlasting joy shall be theirs. 8 “For I, the Lord, love justice; I hate robbery for burnt offering; I will direct their work in truth, and will make with them an everlasting covenant.

9 Their descendants shall be known among the Gentiles, and their offspring among the people. All who see them shall acknowledge them, that they are the posterity whom the Lord has blessed.” 10 I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, My soul shall be joyful in my God; For He has clothed me with the garments of salvation, He has covered me with the robe of righteousness, As a bridegroom decks himself with ornaments, And as a bride adorns herself with her jewels. 11 For as the earth brings forth its bud,
As the garden causes the things that are sown in it to spring forth, So the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations.

Also in chapters 60-62 these whole chapters speaks of the time of the Millennium. 63 goes back in time to the day of God’s wrath. I love how the Lord made it (the word) go back and forth, forward and backward, so only the truly discerning (those with the Holy Spirit) can unravel and figure it out! But read this and see that the Lord is going to turn their ashes into beauty. I am thinking these and others in the world that did not go to the battle of Armageddon will live on after the day of the Lord, and will be brought through to the millennial kingdom. These will be they which repopulate the earth. Look at the judgment Jesus does in Matthew 25

Matthew 25:31-33 31. “When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. 32. All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. 33. And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left. The sheep and the goats are those who went through the tribulation and are still in human form. They are left on earth at the end of the age. They have not been plucked up in the end time harvest of the wicked. Neither have they been glorified with the redeemed in the resurrection/rapture. And so they await a final “sorting out” by the Returning Messiah. This sorting out is the sheep goat judgment. In this judgment Messiah determines which unsaved non wicked Mortals left at the end of this age, are given entry into the millennial kingdom.

What gives me reason to believe this, is simple. The Lord has blinded the Jews until the times of the gentiles be fulfilled. If it was He blinding them on purpose, a certain number of them, then why would He not make provision for a way for them to come back to Him? Time and again the Lord has allowed Israel to be broken up and spread to all different parts of the world, but has always provided a way for them to come back. I honestly believe this is why, even though Jesus comes back and takes His bride up in the sky; there will be those who are left alive. Otherwise not one form of answer to these questions can make a lick of sense. There has always been a remnant, time and again the bible shows, the Lord put aside some to bring back to Israel!

There is no pre tribulation rapture it cannot be proven in the word. There is not one spot in the entire bible that makes anyone, except people who need to believe this lie of satan, believe that Jesus said He is coming back twice or three or four times. There are two count them two comings of the Lord to this earth. One was to bring us back to a relationship with the Lord, He came as our redeemer, and the second time as the Lord of Lords and the reigning King of kings. But let us go on and continue so that hopefully we can see clearly the answer. I have so many verses to put up about the peoples of the Millennium; I barely know where to begin. I have been studying for weeks now and trying to figure it all out to make a clear and concise answer. I found so many many many verses pertaining to this people, that I can scarcely write them all down. So I will pick a few from the vast number.

“And it will come about that just as you were a curse among the nations, O house of Judah and house of Israel, so I will save you that you may become a blessing” (Zechariah 8:13). “ten men from all the nations will grasp the garment of a Jew saying, ‘Let us go with you, for we have heard that God is with you'” (Zechariah 8:23). Ezekiel 36:10-11 10 ‘I will multiply men on you, all the house of Israel, all of it; and the cities will be inhabited and the waste places will be rebuilt. 11 ‘I will multiply on you man and beast; and they will increase and be fruitful; and I will cause you to be inhabited as you were formerly and will treat you better than at the first. Thus you will know that I am the Lord. You see God made promises to Abraham Isaac and Jacob that have yet to be fulfilled.

We gentiles were given promises as well that we will live and reign as kings and priests with the Lord. “Then the sovereignty, the dominion, and the greatness of all the kingdoms under the whole heaven will be given to the people of the saints of the Highest One; His kingdom will be an everlasting kingdom, and all the dominions will serve and obey Him” (Daniel 7:27). In the New Testament, Paul repeated the same promise in the simplest of terms: “If we endure, we shall also reign with Him” (2 Timothy 2:12). Jesus affirmed the promise in His letter to the church at Thyatira when He wrote: “And he who overcomes, and he who keeps My deeds until the end, to him I will give authority over the nations; and he shall rule them with a rod of iron…” (Revelation 2:26-27).

John in the throne room in his vision, or visit to the heavens, heard this promise to the Saints! “And Thou has made them [the Redeemed] to be a kingdom and priests to our God; and they will reign upon the earth” (Revelation 5:10). This promise to the Church of worldwide dominion is going to be fulfilled during the Millennium. That is what Jesus was referring to in the Sermon on the Mount when He said, “Blessed are the gentle, for they shall inherit the earth” (Matthew 5:5). We surely do not as of yet reign supreme over the earth. We are the minority now a days and going to be even more scarce before all is said and done.

Jesus will reign as king of the world from Mt. Zion in Jerusalem. Here are a few verses to explain this concept. Isaiah 24:23 Then the moon will be abashed and the sun ashamed, For the Lord of hosts will reign on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem, and His glory will be before His elders. Zechariah 14:9 And the Lord will be king over all the earth; in that day the Lord will be the only one, and His name the only one. The Redeemed, in their glorified bodies, will help Him with His reign by serving worldwide as administrators, judges, and spiritual tutors to those who enter the kingdom in the flesh — and to their children. Daniel 7:18 ‘But the saints of the Highest One will receive the kingdom and possess the kingdom forever, for all ages to come. ’Daniel 7:27 ‘Then the sovereignty, the dominion and the greatness of all the kingdoms under the whole heaven will be given to the people of the saints of the Highest One; His kingdom will be an everlasting kingdom, and all the dominions will serve and obey Him.’ Jeremiah 3:15 “Then I will give you shepherds after My own heart, who will feed you on knowledge and understanding.

And one more set of verses. Jesus was speaking about the parable of the Money usage in Luke 19:11-17 11 While they were listening to these things, Jesus went on to tell a parable, because He was near Jerusalem, and they supposed that the kingdom of God was going to appear immediately. 12 So He said, “A nobleman went to a distant country to receive a kingdom for himself, and then return.13 “And he called ten of his slaves, and gave them ten minas and said to them, ‘Do business with this until I come back.’ 14 “But his citizens hated him and sent a delegation after him, saying, ‘We do not want this man to reign over us.’ 15 “When he returned, after receiving the kingdom, he ordered that these slaves, to whom he had given the money, be called to him so that he might know what business they had done. 16 “The first appeared, saying, ‘Master, your mina has made ten minas more.’17 “And he said to him, ‘Well done, good slave, because you have been faithful in a very little thing, you are to be in authority over ten cities.’

Let’s not forget God’s promises to the nations of a world full of peace. God has promised to give Mankind and the earth a rest from its wars. But that peace will not come until the Prince of Peace returns. Only then will the nations “hammer their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks.” Only then will we realize the dream of a world where “nation will not lift up sword against nation, and never again will they learn war” (Isaiah 2:4). All of these promises and the ones I will show you, have not come to pass yet.

In Romans 8 Paul says something quite interesting about the creation itself. Romans 8:18-23 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us. 19 For the anxious longing of the creation waits eagerly for the revealing of the sons of God. 20 For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it, in hope 21 that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. 22 For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now. 23 And not only this, but also we ourselves, having the first fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our body.

A little off topic here but consider the words of Paul here for a few minutes. The people of the world at large, keeps saying, what on earth is going on with our world? I will tell you something, The Lord created the earth good and perfect. It was not made to house the sin and the evil that it now houses. The Lord says the blood of innocents cries out day and night from the ground. In Genesis 4 you can read how Abels blood cried out but look in Jeremiah and Ezekiel about the blood of innocents! This partially explains why the earth groans and waits for it’s redemption, as well as we His children!

Jer_2:34 Also in thy skirts is found the blood of the souls of the poor innocents: I have not found it by secret search, but upon all these. Jer_7:6 If ye oppress not the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, and shed not innocent blood in this place, neither walk after other gods to your hurt: Jer_19:4 Because they have forsaken me, and have estranged this place, and have burned incense in it unto other gods, whom neither they nor their fathers have known, nor the kings of Judah, and have filled this place with the blood of innocents; Jer_22:3 Thus saith the LORD; Execute ye judgment and righteousness, and deliver the spoiled out of the hand of the oppressor: and do no wrong, do no violence to the stranger, the fatherless, nor the widow, neither shed innocent blood in this place. Jer_22:17 But thine eyes and thine heart are not but for thy covetousness, and for to shed innocent blood, and for oppression, and for violence, to do it. Jer_26:15 But know ye for certain, that if ye put me to death, ye shall surely bring innocent blood upon yourselves, and upon this city, and upon the inhabitants thereof: for of a truth the LORD hath sent me unto you to speak all these words in your ears.

Eze_9:9 Then said he unto me, The iniquity of the house of Israel and Judah is exceeding great, and the land is full of blood, and the city full of perverseness: for they say, The LORD hath forsaken the earth, and the LORD seeth not. Eze_22:3 Then say thou, Thus saith the Lord GOD, The city sheddeth blood in the midst of it, that her time may come, and maketh idols against herself to defile herself. Note: that her time may come, this means, because of innocent blood shed, this stands out as a big reason for the lords time of Judgment. Eze_22:4 Thou art become guilty in thy blood that thou hast shed; and hast defiled thyself in thine idols which thou hast made; and thou hast caused thy days to draw near, and art come even unto thy years: therefore have I made thee a reproach unto the heathen, and a mocking to all countries.

Eze_22:27 Her princes in the midst thereof are like wolves ravening the prey, to shed blood, and to destroy souls, to get dishonest gain. Eze_23:37 That they have committed adultery, and blood is in their hands, and with their idols have they committed adultery, and have also caused their sons, whom they bare unto me, to pass for them through the fire, to devour them. Eze_36:18 Wherefore I poured my fury upon them for the blood that they had shed upon the land, and for their idols wherewith they had polluted it:

Back to reasons for the Lord our God to make a millennium. God promised Jesus His Glory would be seen all over the world. Isaiah 66:18–19 18“For I know their works and their thoughts; the time is coming to gather all nations and tongues. And they shall come and see My glory. 19 “I will set a sign among them and will send survivors from them to the nations: Tarshish, Put, Lud, Meshech, Tubal and 3Javan, to the distant coastlands that have neither heard My fame nor seen My glory. And they will declare My glory among the nations. We know Jesus stayed in Israel through out His time on earth, so this has not been fulfilled as of yet! Also notice the Lord speaking of survivors? There are clues from start to finish in the word. All one must do is read the word as a whole,, to see everything in the word works together to make a perfect and complete picture.

Getting back to the work at hand, look at 2 Thessalonians 1:7–10, 7 and to give relief to you who are afflicted and to us as well when the Lord Jesus will be revealed from heaven with His mighty angels in flaming fire, 8 dealing out retribution to those who do not know God and to those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus. 9 These will pay the penalty of eternal destruction, away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power, 10 when He comes to be glorified in His saints on that day, and to be marveled at among all who have believed—for our testimony to you was believed.

Though it may seem to be a fairly rare subject, the idea of a remnant is found 540 times in the Bible! Most of the time, the remnant concept is disguised by the way the words are translated into English. In the Old Testament, remnant is translated by six Hebrew root words, each of which has the underlying meaning of “what is left,” “what remains,” “survivors,” “escapees,” or “the rest.” The one Greek root used in the New Testament and in the Septuagint has the same meaning.

The biblical writers mention at least six different remnants. 1) Survivors of any catastrophe (e.g., Lot survived Sodom). 2) A group of non-Israelite survivors (e.g., “the remnant of Edom,” Amos 9:12). 3) Israelite survivors of the Assyrian invasion in 721-718 BC. 4) Jewish survivors of the Babylonian invasion in 585 BC .5) The remnant of Jews who returned to Judah from Babylon. 6) The remainder of physical Israelites and Jews after the Great Tribulation.

There are many scriptures that speak to us about the mourning of the people upon seeing Jesus. Now Jesus is very forgiving and I am sure that upon seeing Him these people are going to fall flat on their faces in repentance, and with great mourning. The Jews are going to be ripping their clothes and pouring dirt on their heads in mourning, so great will be their pain. We are told they will mourn Revelation 1:7 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen. Matthew 24:30 “Then will appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven. And then all the peoples of the earth will mourn when they see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory.

Also in Zechariah 12:10-14 10 “And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on Me whom they pierced. Yes, they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son, and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn. 11 In that day there shall be a great mourning in Jerusalem, like the mourning at Hadad Rimmon in the plain of Megiddo. 12 And the land shall mourn, every family by itself: the family of the house of David by itself, and their wives by themselves; the family of the house of Nathan by itself, and their wives by themselves; 13 the family of the house of Levi by itself, and their wives by themselves; the family of Shimei by itself, and their wives by themselves; 14 all the families that remain, every family by itself, and their wives by themselves.

This is clearly speaking of the Israelites mourning big time. I do not know why it is that people actually argue with the bible. It is clear there has always been a remnant that the Lord kept and brought back to Himself. Just as He told Hosea to go take a whore for wife, and made him to love her with an unending love. Each time she strayed away from him, he went and gathered her back home. This shows the mercy and the Love God has for His people the apple of His eye Israel. Time and again Israel has come back to the knowledge of God even in their foreign lands, and He brought them back, in repentance and mourning for the loss of their relationship and for their idolatry. Then He worked wonderful things in them, until again they went back to being prostitutes. Read the story of Hosea and see how God used that prophet, to show Israel His unending mercy and love and grace for the apple of His eye.

Joel 2:32 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call. Acts 2:21 And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.’ Romans 11:26 and in this way all Israel will be saved. As it is written: “The deliverer will come from Zion; he will turn godlessness away from Jacob.Isaiah 4:2 In that day the Branch of the LORD will be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the land will be the pride and glory of the survivors in Israel. Jeremiah 31:7 This is what the LORD says: “Sing with joy for Jacob; shout for the foremost of the nations. Make your praises heard, and say, ‘LORD, save your people, the remnant of Israel.’

Amos 9:8 “Surely the eyes of the Sovereign LORD are on the sinful kingdom. I will destroy it from the face of the earth. Yet I will not totally destroy the descendants of Jacob,” declares the LORD. Obadiah 1:17 But on Mount Zion will be deliverance; it will be holy, and Jacob will possess his inheritance. Micah 4:7 I will make the lame my remnant, those driven away a strong nation. The LORD will rule over them in Mount Zion from that day and forever. Amos 9:12 That they may possess the remnant of Edom, and of all the heathen, which are called by my name, saith the LORD that doeth this. See The Lord has in mind a remnant even still, and it is told to us through out the word.

Leviticus 26:6 “‘I will grant peace in the land, and you will lie down and no one will make you afraid. I will remove wild beasts from the land, and the sword will not pass through your country. Job 11:19 You will lie down, with no one to make you afraid, and many will court your favor. Isaiah 10:20 In that day the remnant of Israel, the survivors of Jacob, will no longer rely on him who struck them down but will truly rely on the LORD, the Holy One of Israel. Jeremiah 31:33 “This is the covenant I will make with the people of Israel after that time,” declares the LORD. “I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people. Ezekiel 34:13 I will bring them out from the nations and gather them from the countries, and I will bring them into their own land. I will pasture them on the mountains of Israel, in the ravines and in all the settlements in the land. Micah 4:7 I will make the lame my remnant, those driven away a strong nation. The LORD will rule over them in Mount Zion from that day and forever.

I will close with these set of verses; Zephaniah 3:8-13 8 “Therefore wait for Me,” says the Lord,“Until the day I rise up for plunder; My determination is to gather the nations To My assembly of kingdoms,To pour on them My indignation, All My fierce anger; All the earth shall be devoured With the fire of My jealousy. 9 “For then I will restore to the peoples a pure language,that they all may call on the name of the Lord, To serve Him with one accord. 10 From beyond the rivers of Ethiopia My worshipers,The daughter of My dispersed ones, Shall bring My offering. 11 In that day you shall not be shamed for any of your deeds In which you transgress against Me; For then I will take away from your midst those who rejoice in your pride, and you shall no longer be haughty In My holy mountain. 12 I will leave in your midst a meek and humble people, and they shall trust in the name of the Lord. 13 The remnant of Israel shall do no unrighteousness and speak no lies, nor shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth; For they shall feed their flocks and lie down, and no one shall make them afraid.”

In Closing I just want to say, when someone wants to stick their feet in the mud, and argue against truth, they will find ways to do it, even if it makes no logical sense what so ever. People can make the bible say anything they want it to, but when you study it altogether, then truth will stand out. It is just plain sad that so many have this watered down ear tickling garbage they call truth, but it in no way, resembles truth. The times that we are in and the times coming will show the truth to those who refuse to believe it for now. Then we will know who truly are the sheep and the goats. Or the wheat and the chaff.

I pray this helps any who have asked this. With all of the word of God I suggest you always seek the Lord in His word for the answers The Holy Spirit will never lead you wrong!

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
