The Rapture Force

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


Tasted, And Partook

posted by PrayerWarrior

What do these words mean? To taste, is to sample, to put some in your mouth. I like this one too, to perceive in any way. So that to me says tried! Partake, to take or have a part in; share. So to taste the Lord and to partake pretty much says you were a part of the Holy Spirit. To have been enlightened is, to give intellectual or spiritual light to; instruct; impart knowledge to:

In the Word we are told in Hebrews 6: 4 For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit, 5 and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come, 6 if they fall away, to renew them again to repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God, and put Him to an open shame.

Let’s really break this down, because I want everyone to understand that this is no joke here, this is a very serious, and very important thing to understand.

You cannot partake of the Holy Spirit, unless you were under Him, in Him, or immersed in Him. You cannot have tasted God and the gifts of the Holy Spirit, if you are not truly His. These are not given to those who are not truly saved.

You cannot be apostate unless you were truly in Him! Look also at John 15:1-8 “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. 2 Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit. 3 You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. 4 Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.

5 “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. 6 If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned. 7 If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. 8 By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.

So if we do not stay attached to the vine which is Jesus Christ we wither and die and are only good for the fire. That speaks of walking away. One cannot sin willfully after having received forgiveness of sins and then expect to go to heaven.

2 peter 2:20-22 For if, after they have escaped the defilements of the world through the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and overcome, the last state has become worse for them than the first. For it would have been better for them never to have known the way of righteousness than after knowing it to turn back from the holy commandment delivered to them. What the true proverb says has happened to them: “The dog returns to its own vomit, and the sow, after washing herself, returns to wallow in the mire.”

The word is showing us over and over again our conditional salvation. Romans 5:9-10 Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. 10 For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. Or if we die in Him and go to heaven.

look also at Matt 7:21-23, 21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 22 Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’

How can someone who is not a partaker of the Holy Spirit cast out demons and or prophecy? Jesus Himself said satan cannot or will not cast out a demon as that would be fighting against himself. Only those who have the Holy Spirit can prophesy or cast out demons so they had to have known Him and truly been in the Spirit for them to do those things!

Also notice Jesus did not deny that they did such, He told them they practice lawlessness. it is now worse for them than had they not known Him at all.

What no one seems to understand is the churches get judged first it is not exactly churches, it is the spirit of that particular sect of the Ekklesia, the body the chosen elect ones, (us the body of the Lord), that gets judged first, and if you are of the body you are a Christian! But they are going to be kicked out of the body, because they will not repent.
I don’t know why many people choose to overlook this, the judgement of the body comes before the judgement’s against the world, the ones who do not serve the Lord, those who have chosen against Jesus! Then those who were and have been in the body of believers, but for some reason lost their way, and they refuse to repent of their sins.

Study the first 3 chapters of Revelation seriously deeply, and see what Jesus is saying to those churches? These are not past tense churches, they did exist in a physical location before. They now do not have a physical location or area of the globe, now these churches exist in the spirit. Revelation has not begun just yet. I mean who knows I do believe the body is being judged right now.

The body is going to lose some members. How can we think one can not walk away from the promise when it has been done before? And God is never changing?
God has not changed one thing about Himself and who and what He is and is about.
The whole of everything was designed by Him He knows everything and shows us and tells us over and over again He does not change.

He knows when time would begin and time would end. He saw and knew our every moment, from before the foundations of the earth. He knows our death date and how we are going to die. He knows and knew long before He even made the world everything that would transpire.

He knows who chose Him, and He loved them unconditionally and they walked away from it, just like the devils or demons did, and just like the Israelites who were killed by the Lord our God, before reaching the promised land! People are still free to leave Him. He says He would not be the one to leave us! Hebrews 13:5 Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”

He will never leave nor forsake us, but that does not mean people wont and haven’t forsaken Him. How can anyone think that God has changed in this aspect, even though we are under grace, people just like angels and in the OT, still choose to walk away from Him.

I cannot fathom that myself, even if one backslides a bit they are always forgiven upon repentance, and taken back into the fold. A name does not get blotted out just like that, it takes a lot to not be given another chance. God knows who is going to, and who will not stay His.

I could easily speak on the book of Revelation but no I am talking about judgment and no such thing as once saved always saved. The promises of God are conditional, all of them, they have always been. The condition is you stay in Him no matter what. Even if it means death.

Once saved always saved is not a fact unless one walks non stop in Him. But those who walk away, have at one time, walked with Him in Him and had the gifts they were true Christians. Anyone at any time can choose to walk away it is still free will. I cannot myself fathom a moment in life without Him, but that’s me and obviously you but to say people can never lose their salvation is just wrong. God does not stop loving no matter what, but just because He loves us no end, does not mean He will hold us, against our will, to Him.

Why would we be told to work out our OWN salvation with fear and trembling? Because we could easily walk away from Him. We could get carried away by the cares of the world! We must remain humble and contrite. There are many who served the Lord with everything they have, at one time, but many of them walked away.

The Lord, He told me a while back, 1 Cor 5:6, Gal 5:9 a little leaven, leavens the whole lump. What man teaches wrong and believes wrong, colors their thinking as to the truth of the Lord.

We are going to go through insane hell for one purpose! To show us rather we are devoted to the Lord or not! God knows who is and who is not His, but we do not even know that ourselves! When it comes down to insane testing, even painful testing, He knows, who will and who will not remain in Him. But He wants that each of us would in fact know for ourselves, truly if we are 100% in Him. He does not want slackers.

Fiery trials are for our good to make us even stronger in our trust of God, we better expect to go through the mill and then back through it. As Paul says in Acts 14:22 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.

What are we heading for after the tribulation? the millennial Kingdom!! So through MUCH tribulation we must enter it, and still stay in Him. For these temporary afflictions, reap for us an amazing reward we cannot even fathom in the end. Many will find the cost entirely too much to bear, and fall away. True Christians, no less!

It is only the church of the day that says stop being militant! We are soldiers in the Lord’s army we must be diligently about the fathers works. As we see in James, faith without works is dead!! It is not just crowns that will be taken away from us, it is the promises of the Father if we do not keep on doing our part until we die! We are to be about speaking truth no matter the cost to us and it is (the cost) heavy at all times

Our own families turn against us but we are not concerned by that, for the one reason that Jesus said, it would happen and we would be hated by the world for speaking and being in the truth. We are soldiers in the Lord’s army and are going to be crusading throughout the world, those who are mentally emotionally spiritually and physically able to withstand and persevere, in the worst times the world has ever seen. Evil walking among us, with us.

They tell us we are haters, no we are not, we love and so we do not want to see anyone go to hell, not anyone, so we keep speaking truth and exposing liars. People have got to know the truth. Lies and following them blindly, or knowingly even, gets one hell. Jesus is truth and we have to know Him and all of the truth, that is knowing Him.
I am passionate about the truth. It is my life and the Life in the Lord, is knowing who and what is not of God at all times, and making others aware of it with truth.

So people who promote pre tribulation rapture and people who tell people no no you cannot lose your salvation are liars. That is heretical, and it is something that must be exposed. And then most people just say you are judgmental, that is not judging that is showing them with the bible, the scriptures that prove we must be busy working occupying until He comes. Not with the next church social crap or gimmick of the church. But with real repentant revivals.

This country this whole world is a complete wreck and we can know all the truth of the word of God, Because the Holy Spirit does not lie so we study the word diligently and do not for one moment allow someone to speak lies to us when the Holy Spirit has spoken the truth to us through the word of God. That is why if i do not agree with someone i do not go to their church.

The Lord gave me Ezekiel 34 not long ago! read it and understand. Then look at other countries Christianity, and see most of their Christianity is real and deep God is all they have, and still they cling to the cross. They are being beheaded for their faith, right now.

2 Pet 2:4-11 For if God did not spare the angels who sinned, but cast them down to hell and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved for judgment; 5 and did not spare the ancient world, but saved Noah, one of eight people, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood on the world of the ungodly; 6 and turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes, condemned them to destruction, making them an example to those who afterward would live ungodly;

7 and delivered righteous Lot, who was oppressed by the filthy conduct of the wicked 8 (for that righteous man, dwelling among them, tormented his righteous soul from day to day by seeing and hearing their lawless deeds)— 9 then the Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations and to reserve the unjust under punishment for the day of judgment, 10 and especially those who walk according to the flesh in the lust of uncleanness and despise authority. They are presumptuous, self-willed. They are not afraid to speak evil of dignitaries, 11 whereas angels, who are greater in power and might, do not bring a reviling accusation against them before the Lord.

The Lord is so good but He is not going to look the other way when one sins. I submit to you the truth that God is never changing. No I have heard so many many Christians claim they know this truth, then explain how we are no longer under the Lord of the Old testament just because Jesus came.

We can see without question this is not true. God has not changed how He deals with anyone since the angels chose satan over Him He has always dealt the same way. People are lower than the angels, He did not put up with angels departing and disobedience, He will not put up with people doing so either. Let’s look at Ezekiel 18:24 “But when a righteous man turns away from his righteousness and commits iniquity, and does according to all the abominations that the wicked man does, shall he live? All the righteousness which he has done shall not be remembered; because of the unfaithfulness of which he is guilty and the sin which he has committed, because of them he shall die.

25 “Yet you say, ‘The way of the Lord is not fair.’ Hear now, O house of Israel, is it not My way which is fair, and your ways which are not fair? 26 When a righteous man turns away from his righteousness, commits iniquity, and dies in it, it is because of the iniquity which he has done that he dies. 27 Again, when a wicked man turns away from the wickedness which he committed, and does what is lawful and right, he preserves himself alive.

28 Because he considers and turns away from all the transgressions which he committed, he shall surely live; he shall not die. 29 Yet the house of Israel says, ‘The way of the Lord is not fair.’ O house of Israel, is it not My ways which are fair, and your ways which are not fair?

30 “Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, every one according to his ways,” says the Lord God. “Repent, and turn from all your transgressions, so that iniquity will not be your ruin. 31 Cast away from you all the transgressions which you have committed, and get yourselves a new heart and a new spirit. For why should you die, O house of Israel? 32 For I have no pleasure in the death of one who dies,” says the Lord God. “Therefore turn and live!”

Now i want you all to think about this as well. We who come to the Lord through Christ are now joint heirs with Abraham! Understand one who accepts Christ is truly a chosen elect one. No ones comes to the Lord our God Lest the Lord calls them! Galatians 3:29

Then let’s look at Ezekiel 33, and see what it says in there. I want to lay a little ground work here first to make sure people understand. We who work in the Lord and do His will and warn people, are doing what the Lord tells us to do. That is to be watchmen to watch and in Ezekiel 33 the Lord explains concisely to Ezekiel that if he does not warn of danger, anyone who is lost, and not warned by the watchmen first, their blood is on their heads.

I dearly love the two chapters of Ezekiel 33 and 34. 34 is all about shepherds who do not lead the Lord’s sheep but instead take advantage of and harm in all their greed. And that the Lord Himself will care for His own and be their shepherd the only one they need.

Back to EZ 33. 12 “Therefore you, O son of man, say to the children of your people: ‘The righteousness of the righteous man shall not deliver him in the day of his transgression; as for the wickedness of the wicked, he shall not fall because of it in the day that he turns from his wickedness; nor shall the righteous be able to live because of his righteousness in the day that he sins.’ 13 When I say to the righteous that he shall surely live, but he trusts in his own righteousness and commits iniquity, none of his righteous works shall be remembered; but because of the iniquity that he has committed, he shall die.

14 Again, when I say to the wicked, ‘You shall surely die,’ if he turns from his sin and does what is lawful and right, 15 if the wicked restores the pledge, gives back what he has stolen, and walks in the statutes of life without committing iniquity, he shall surely live; he shall not die. 16 None of his sins which he has committed shall be remembered against him; he has done what is lawful and right; he shall surely live.

17 “Yet the children of your people say, ‘The way of the Lord is not fair.’ But it is their way which is not fair! 18 When the righteous turns from his righteousness and commits iniquity, he shall die because of it. 19 But when the wicked turns from his wickedness and does what is lawful and right, he shall live because of it. 20 Yet you say, ‘The way of the Lord is not fair.’ O house of Israel, I will judge every one of you according to his own ways.”

Now keeping in mind at all times that God is never changing, not ever, not in who He is, and not in how He deals with the people of the world. Those who are His, and those who are not, how can anyone then convince themselves, that the Lord has changed one drip drop of Himself? I tell you He has not changed, and it is people tickling itching ears. Better yet it is satan saying that same old tired line, that got Eve at the start of time. Surely you won’t die!


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


The Day Of The Lord, What Is It? Part 3

posted by PrayerWarrior

I just want to say it is of huge importance to recognize when the coming of the Lord is. Not because if you believe it a post tribulation rapture and it is a pre tribulation rapture you will miss it. I know without a single doubt not one little piece of a doubt that it is a post tribulation rapture, but pre tribulation people are always saying that we will not be accounted worthy to be a part of the rapture if we are not thinking it is imminent. It is not imminent. There is much that must occur before the day of the Lord,and being blind to the truth is very dangerous indeed in so many ways for those who just refuse to listen to the truth of the matter. What friends will you do when you find out that you have been blinded by satan and have allowed this blinding to go on? What will you do when the Lord tarries,and does not come when you believe He is supposed to? I pray that you will be prepared and strong because you are going to need it.

Now on to the last of the verses.

Isaiah 27:1 In that day, the LORD will punish with his sword, his fierce, great and powerful sword, Leviathan the gliding serpent, Leviathan the coiling serpent; he will slay the monster of the sea.

Joel 2:1 Blow the trumpet in Zion; sound the alarm on my holy hill. Let all who live in the land tremble, for the day of the LORD is coming. It is close at hand.

Joel 2:11 The LORD thunders at the head of his army; his forces are beyond number, and mighty are those who obey his command. The day of the LORD is great; it is dreadful. Who can endure it?

Zephaniah 1:15 That day will be a day of wrath, a day of distress and anguish, a day of trouble and ruin, a day of darkness and gloom, a day of clouds and blackness.

Zechariah 14:6-9 On that day there will be no light, no cold or frost. 7 It will be a unique day, without daytime or nighttime–a day known to the LORD. When evening comes, there will be light. 8 On that day living water will flow out from Jerusalem, half to the eastern sea and half to the western sea, in summer and in winter. 9 The LORD will be king over the whole earth. On that day there will be one LORD, and his name the only name.

Malachi 3:2 But who can endure the day of his coming? Who can stand when he appears? For he will be like a refiner’s fire or a launderer’s soap.

1 Corinthians 1:8 He will keep you strong to the end, so that you will be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.

1 Corinthians 5:5 hand this man over to Satan, so that the sinful nature may be destroyed and his spirit saved on the day of the Lord.

Philippians 1:6 being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

Philippians 1:10 so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ.

Philippians 2:16 as you hold out the word of life–in order that I may boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor for nothing.

1 Thessalonians 5:2 for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night.

2 Thessalonians 1:10 on the day he comes to be glorified in his holy people and to be marveled at among all those who have believed. This includes you, because you believed our testimony to you. This is clearly saying YOU!!!. I do not see how people so easily ignore the word of God in it’s entirety. I cannot understand any longer how this occurs. It personally made me ask a huge amount of questions,that no one could answer,when I was a pre tribulationist.

2 Thessalonians 2:2 not to become easily unsettled or alarmed by some prophecy, report or letter supposed to have come from us, saying that the day of the Lord has already come.

2 Timothy 4:8 Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day–and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing. A one time awarding of crowns, on THAT DAY!!! The Last day,the only return of Christ.

2 Peter 3:12 as you look forward to the day of God and speed its coming. That day will bring about the destruction of the heavens by fire, and the elements will melt in the heat.

1 John 4:17 In this way, love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment, because in this world we are like him.

Lamentations 2:22 “You have called as in a solemn day my terrors round about, so that in the day of the LORD’S anger none escaped nor remained: those that I have swaddled and brought up has my enemy consumed.”

Isaiah 13:9 “Behold, the day of the LORD comes, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it.”

Isaiah 34:8 “For it is the day of the LORD’S vengeance, and the year of recompenses for the controversy of Zion.”

Joel 3:14 “Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision.”

Joel 3:12 “Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there will I it to judge all the heathen round about.”

Zachariah 12:11 “In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem, as the mourning of Hadadrimmon in the valley of Megiddon.”

Malachi 4:5 “Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD”
Acts 2:20 “The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come”

Isaiah 13:13 “Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the LORD of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger.”
Proverbs 6:34 “For jealousy is the rage of a man: therefore he will not spare in the day of vengeance.”

Isaiah 61:2 “To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn”
Isaiah 63:4 “For the day of vengeance is in my heart, and the year of my redeemed is come.”

Job 21:30 “That the wicked is reserved to the day of destruction? They shall be brought forth to the day of wrath.”
Proverbs 11:4 “Riches profit not in the day of wrath: but righteousness delivers from death.”

Romans 2:5 “But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasures up unto yourself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God”.

For now dear sisters and brothers this is it. I will as the weeks and months go along refer back to certain of these scriptures and possibly even all of them at one time or another,and will even put different ones down,as I explain this all out. I am sorry if I repeated any verses.

We can comfort ourselves with the knowledge that we are not due God’s wrath or anger. We are though going to go through severe trials and persecution. Christ tells us we will suffer persecution and our families will turn us over to persecution in the end times,but there is one church of the seven churches that is promised protection through it. That church is the church of Philadelphia the church of love,who believes in the power of the Holy Spirit. But that is for another lesson.

May God Bless you and hold you in His hands at all times. We must endure and keep on loving and yes even praising Him as we go through trials,we do not want our running this race to have been for nothing when He comes.

One last remark I must make. People do not study the book of Revelation for many reasons,all of them are a cop out. It is just not smart to ignore the fulfillment of the word of the Lord,the ending. Also it is the only book of the bible that tells us we will be blessed for reading it. Revelation 1:3 Blessed is the one who reads the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near.

So in closing,I just want to say,what is the day of the Lord? It is the fulfillment of every promise,every prophecy. It is God’s wrath on a sinful world,and on evil. This day and it is a one day event,has been stored up within God for centuries,for thousands of years. No one will stand against the Lord in that great and terrible day. The day of the Lord is His vengeance being wreaked on the whole of evil men and fallen angels.

Love in Christ Jesus,Tammy

Jesus said Watch therefore, for you do not know when the master of the house is coming , in the evening, at midnight, at the crowing of the rooster, or in the morning lest, coming suddenly, he find you sleeping. And what I say to you, I say to all: Watch! Mark 13.35-37.
Jesus gave us warnings that are letting us know the great tribulation is well on it’s way. We have heard the end of the age is coming for years and years,and everyone thinks because so many have looked for it for such a long period of time that it will be a long way off. I beg to differ. All the signs are happening now all around us.

Some people say I am crazy for thinking that, the end of the age is almost on our doorstep. That the things the bible has prophesied for thousands of years are now happening. They think I am crazy for looking forward to my Messiahs arrival.That I must have a death wish, and have stopped living my life in anticipation of the Lord coming. But I am here to tell you I am alive,and excited,and am working constantly for the kingdom of the Lord. I am loving life, but as the Lord said, do not love your life so much or you will lose it.

I do not love my life so much as to work towards keeping it. I would willingly give up life on earth for a place alongside my savior,as a joint heir with Him for the kingdom of God. I am even now as I write this, living a real honest to goodness life. I am even now working to build the kingdom of God up. Every moment of every day I am working towards filling the eternal kingdom. How successful I am, I will not know until we have all reached judgment.

I am not working on earth for any treasures here. My treasure I know without a doubt, rests in the hands of the Lord,and in His home, and kingdom. I am working to amass crowns, that I may lay at the feet of my Lord. What will I need crowns for there? Not a thing I just want as many as possible to leave them at the feet of the one who deserves them all, Jesus! So though I do not have a job here on earth, at least according to some,I am working every day!!As well as working a real job here on earth, and that is taking care of my grand babies. Don’t think that is a real job? Hah I laugh at that it is a very demanding job, and I would not trade it for anything.

Now that I have that all out of my system, let’s get on with this particular article.

Matthew 24:3 Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?” Jesus goes on from here to tell them of the signs of his second coming.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. So what does that mean, many will come in my name? Well it means that false preachers and teachers will be plenty through out the times we are living in now. Sadly this is happening now a days,and there is plenty all around who are all too willing to teach doctrines of demons.

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. This here says the end is not yet. Meaning there is still so much more that must happen before the end of the age. 7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.We see many countries coming against their own country men. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. We can see and have seen for many years famines across the earth,but it will be 1/4 of the world who dies from famine, in the tribulation. We see here that there will be earthquakes in various places.We see even now some places that have never had this particular problem before, are experiencing earthquakes. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. We see this is merely the start to our major problems. Not the end times as of these verses,but the next ones are during the last 7 year period of this age.

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. What exactly does it mean to be delivered up to tribulation? Sadly it means persecution for loving Jesus,and living in God’s laws and statutes. 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.

The other day on my face book page I said, “being offended all the time, makes satan have a fertile garden to grow deceit into”. Here it says many will be offended,when we are offended,(and let’s face it we all get offended,and some just harp on that offense for a long while) Satan finds a very willing participant to imagine vengeance and such things. Satan grows our offenses into defensive and sometimes aggressive behaviors. He is a master at what he does, and that is lie to us on a constant basis. Using our own imaginations against us. Offenses can so easily be turned into hatred,with the help of satan. So do not dwell on offenses. Let them go, because seriously, most people did not mean to offend you in the first place.

See here on verse 11 Jesus warns again of false teachers and preachers. It is so important to see this and know it first hand,so you will not be deceived. How can you know who is a false teacher or preacher you ask? Well let me tell you, by knowing your word!! Meaning knowing your bible. You have got to get to know your bible, while there is still time. The bible itself warns us that people in the end times are going to be starving for the word of the Lord. I can only personally assume that means the word of the Lord is going to be outlawed, in the coming times. That right there is enough to scare me half to death. I depend on the word so very much to help me through all of my troubles and toils, and to avoid the snares put in my way.

Lawlessness is really growing all around us. Verse 12 says lawlessness will abound, and the love of many will grow cold because of that lawlessness. How can that be? Because when someone does something horrific, to someone we love or someone we know,or on a constant basis all around us, it tends to make us jaded. Jaded = worn out or wearied, as by overwork or overuse. When we become jaded then we become complacent, or just down right get nasty and hateful ourselves. In Isaiah chapter 5, it says good will be bad and bad will be good in those times. Already we begin to see that bad is good and good is bad.

For instance,foster parenting. Many places in the world will now, not allow Christians,(even those who have been foster parenting for years) to foster anymore. Why you ask? Because they are teaching the children morals,and not teaching about homosexuality. They say this is damaging children all across the world, and that children must be taught about homosexuality, so they wont become homophobes. This is so abhorrent to many Christians,and they feel shunned and persecuted, and feel as though they have prejudices against them. Which truly it is a prejudice.

The crazy part of all that is, if your Muslim and want to foster parent,(which most do not foster others children,and or adopt, but if they wanted to do so they can do it.) Even though they would have the right under their religion and sharia law, to kill the children if they became, or showed homosexual tendencies. Yeah that’s just lovely now isn’t it? I get my news from conservative world news. I do not bother with secular media.

verses 13 and 14 I wont say much on. Only that we must stay loving and kind and not adhere to the hatred and the coldness of the world. Remember we are not of this world any longer,but of the kingdom of God. And the word being preached to the whole world,well if that mission has not been completed yet,it is very near completion. I mean with technology what it is,it would be hard not to have heard of the Lord,and His saving grace.

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.

What exactly is the abomination that causes desolation? Who really knows? I do not know for sure what that is. I know it will take place in some sort of rebuilt temple or shrine in Jerusalem, in the coming times. We have no idea of how large this temple will be. We do know that there will be one built so that Jews can again make sacrifices to the Lord. But in the middle of this 7 year treaty made with Israel,or we think it is a 7 year treaty. In the book of Daniel it is called the 70th week. We know in other places in the bible when it talks of a week that is actually 7 years it speaks of. In revelation it speaks of 42 weeks which is actually 3.5 years,that the a/c will stop the sacrifices made to God and will call himself God. He will go back on his treaty half way through the period of time he promised Israel.

So much to say,so little want of losing your attention. So I will try in this paragraph to say all I can about verses 16-22. Those who are to flee to the mountain I do believe are some of the chosen ones whom God is going to hide away in the hidden place, prepared just for them. The word tells us God will preserve a tenth of the chosen ones to repopulate the earth in the millennial kingdom. Since we who get taken out of the earth in the so called rapture, will be spiritual beings rather than human beings, and totally immortal, we would not be able to make babies. In the thousand year reign of Christ on the earth in the millennial kingdom,the word tells us there will be so many people born, they will be more than the sands of the seas. Verses 17 and 18 go on to explain there will be no time to get anything just go run for your life and get to the secret place. Once the abomination takes place in the temple.

Well I failed that!! Laughing at myself. This next verse 19 makes me want to be very fearful for babies in those days. I pray that I have no grand or great grand babies who are suckling in those days. Nor anyone who is pregnant in those days either. Jesus says woe to those who are pregnant and or suckling babies in those days. Why? I ask this all the time and have no answer,I guess we are just not to know that answer for now. But that makes for a very nerve wracking thing. Yes I said it ok!! I am fearful of what exactly that means. I just cannot think of babies suffering horribly. It makes me grieve in my spirit. In turn if a mothers child is suffering you know she will be suffering along with the child.

Verses 20,21,and 22 simply put, pray your flight is not in winter. I can only guess that those is speaks of, will be running for their lives, and will have to not even think about getting anything to keep warm with, just running. Greater tribulation than has already occurred at that time means the mark of the beast or antichrists number being absolutely mandatory,or you will get your head cut off,and so much worse than that will be done to you. Personally if I am still alive at that time,let them do their worst. I am Christs own and I will not give up that status for any torture or person on this earth. The time being shortened for the elects sake, Christs own, praise His Glorious name and shout Hallelujah!!!

23 “Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There!’ do not believe it. 24 For false Christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. 25 See, I have told you beforehand. 26 “Therefore if they say to you, ‘Look, He is in the desert!’ do not go out; or ‘Look, He is in the inner rooms!’ do not believe it. 27 For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 28 For wherever the carcass is, there the eagles will be gathered together.

Again Christ is warning us to not pay attention to the false teachers and preachers who say look here He is or there He is, (Christ) it is not true. We will all (the whole world) See Christs return to first gather His elect to Him that where He is we will be forever more. Just like Lightning is seen in the sky flashing so will we see Christ. On the great and mighty day of the Lord the eagles and the vultures, all the birds of prey, will be gathered together for the feast of flesh the Lord is preparing for them, at the battle of Armageddon. This particular verse jumps ahead of the next verses. It jumps ahead of the few verses before it too.

29 “Immediately (after the tribulation of those days)( I put that in parentheses because it says after those days of tribulation. Not before as so many many people think of the rapture. These are Jesus words none others, but the Lords.) the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 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. 31 And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

This is Christ coming for His church. Because while the word tells us always,that we will suffer many and varied tribulations,it also tells us we are not due the wrath of God. The tribulation is the nations anger directed towards God, Christ,and his children, God’s wrath is like nothing before it. He will mix it up with all his anger and indignation at those who persecute even to death, His own. His chosen ones,those who have truly and completely accepted Christ as their savior. He is going to give them more hell than anyone can bear.

And then the ones who have not died from all of the anger God pours out undiluted,Christ comes and fillets them with just the word that pours forth out of His mouth like a double edged sword. We who are His own will be seated on white horses cheering on, our wonderful Savior. Our King of Kings. He will need no help, we are simply there to watch our persecutors get what we have cried out for for centuries,Vengeance. But it is not our duty to reep the vengeance,it is the Job of God,through Christ.

There is tons more I could say right now,but this is a very long article already. So I will end it for now. We will revisit Matthew chapter 24 later on in the study. I seriously could write a very long and winded book, on chapter 24 of Matthew, and give you all the other verses that show you the same picture as these particular verses portray. As we go along I will share more insights with you, as I will be writing from those very books that have the verses that show you this same exact scenario.

God Bless you all, and I really hope you enjoy what I write each week, or every other week as time permits.
Love in Christ Jesus, Tammy
