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!

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

Let’s discuss the Heresies I see in the world today. Some will not agree, and even get angry about what I have to say here, but you need to check yourself and take control of your thoughts and attitude. We are all told to have self-control it is a fruit of the Spirit. I have heard people say I am not responsible for my reactions. I beg to differ. If you have the Holy Spirit within you, then you have got to have the tools to exercise self-control. Galatians 5:23 Temperance in this case is meaning self-control.

I am talking about the heresies that have been brought into these latter times, by people who have themselves, either been fooled or just choose to not have to think about the consequences of their false teaching. 1) Once saved always saved. 2) Jesus is not God. 3) pre tribulation rapture. These are dangerous lies that so many sadly eagerly believe, and whole heartedly adopt. Even convincing themselves those who speak against these lies, are heretics. Satan is a busy fallen angel, and loves to have you believe this garbage, for it leads people to sin.

Now let us get to the nitty gritty. The heresies I speak of are damnable lies brought in by satan, and I will explain how the Lord showed me only too clearly, that I was not the saved person I thought I was for so many years, and was actually on my way to hell. You see I was raised in a Baptist church to believe you could not, no matter how much you sinned, and or lived like hell, lose your salvation. Once sealed always sealed. Then the Lord showed me the very filth I looked like to Him.

I had been swearing smoking pot drinking every weekend, telling dirty jokes, just completely being just like the world. I was not going to church at all or in any way shape or form serving the Lord. I was rude, and could lose my temper at any moment. I had at 12 years old accepted the Lord as my savior and I did mean it at that time with every ounce of my being. But I did not know about repentance. One must repent. This means turn from your wicked ways. Allow the Lord to renew your mind. When I repented and asked him into my heart I also prayed to have the Holy Spirit fill me, immerse me in Him. I prayed Lord give me eyes to see and ears to hear.

Boy oh boy I knew I was baptized in the Holy Spirit right then and there as well. That line of amazing grace I once was blind but now I see had a whole new meaning that blew me away. You see I had, had head knowledge but it came nowhere near my heart, before that day. I then began reading my bible that afternoon, and actually understood every word of what I was reading. I cried so much that night with pure joy.

I turned on my favorite Sunday night shows, desperate house wives and brothers and sisters, after studying the word for a while. Man oh man I could not watch for more than five minutes. I had to turn it off. It grieved my heart so much and hurt my eyes and ears to hear and see what was going on in both shows. I marveled anew at just what had happened to me in so short a time, by truly turning my life over to the Lord. I did a little dance in my living room and then found some preaching to watch instead of the garbage I normally watched.

There too, I found out how much the Holy Spirit works in one, whom He baptizes. My heart was thrilled beyond measure to notice who is false teaching, and who is not. Most of those on TBN are false teachers. Not all of them, but most. I am going to give you a list of 50 or so verses that will help you see clearly that one can and will lose their salvation. It is not as easy as one sin, no which is ridiculous. But one sin that goes on endlessly and is unrepented of will cause you to go to hell. Sinning willfully once you have been saved and brought to truth, will!

I have upon seeing how much I will be writing, decided to break this down into three parts. This one, will deal with the lies, of once saved always saved. Now I want to bring you to a story so many people pass right by and never even notice the significance of the story. It is found in the book of acts and these two were saved people. They lived among the apostles and disciples. Annanias and Sapphira are the names of the people in this particular truth. The story is found in Acts chapter 5. What occurred here had the people fearing the Lord, in a whole new and deeper way.

Acts 5:1-11 But a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession. 2 And he kept back part of the proceeds, his wife also being aware of it, and brought a certain part and laid it at the apostles’ feet. 3 But Peter said, “Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit and keep back part of the price of the land for yourself? 4 While it remained, was it not your own? And after it was sold, was it not in your own control? Why have you conceived this thing in your heart? You have not lied to men but to God.”

5 Then Ananias, hearing these words, fell down and breathed his last. So great fear came upon all those who heard these things. 6 And the young men arose and wrapped him up, carried him out, and buried him.
7 Now it was about three hours later when his wife came in, not knowing what had happened. 8 And Peter answered her, “Tell me whether you sold the land for so much?” She said, “Yes, for so much.”

9 Then Peter said to her, “How is it that you have agreed together to test the Spirit of the Lord? Look, the feet of those who have buried your husband are at the door, and they will carry you out.” 10 Then immediately she fell down at his feet and breathed her last. And the young men came in and found her dead, and carrying her out, buried her by her husband. 11 So great fear came upon all the church and upon all who heard these things.

So if those who lived with the men of the Lord, and amid all the congregation died due to one lie. See that? One lie, just one lie! What makes people think it is ok to sin willy nilly? We are all going to sin and make mistakes friends and brothers and sisters. As long as we repent we can be forgiven. But this was a lie devised for no good purpose other than that this couple just wanted to keep some for themselves just in case? Who knows really, it was a stupid lie, and one they paid for with their life!

One can assume they died and went to hell, because the verse in Revelation 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and fornicators, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. There are a whole lot of and’s in this verse wouldn’t you say? And, in this case meaning, with. I do not know how anyone can convince themselves; this does not include those who have been saved. Liars the bible says a few times are children of the father of lies, satan. John 8:44.

Annanias and Sapphira died in their sin, due to their sin. I have plenty more verses. Let’s look at the parable of the sower. Matthew 13 3 Then he told them many things in parables, saying: “A farmer went out to sow his seed. 4 As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. 5 Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. 6 But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root.7 Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants. 8 Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop—a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown. 9 Whoever has ears, let them hear.”

This parable is in Luke too. I think personally I like Luke’s rendition a little bit more it gives a deeper understanding.

4 And when a great multitude had gathered, and they had come to Him from every city, He spoke by a parable: 5 “A sower went out to sow his seed. And as he sowed, some fell by the wayside; and it was trampled down, and the birds of the air devoured it. 6 Some fell on rock; and as soon as it sprang up, it withered away because it lacked moisture.7 And some fell among thorns, and the thorns sprang up with it and choked it. 8 But others fell on good ground, sprang up, and yielded a crop a hundredfold.” When He had said these things He cried, “He who has ears to hear, let him hear!”

Jesus taught the truth about losing eternal life in the parable of the sower. In explaining the seed which fell among the thorns and the rocks, Jesus said, “Those by the way side are they that hear; then cometh the devil, and taketh away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved. They on the rock are they, which, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, which for a while believe, and in time of temptation fall away.” Luke 8:12, 13.

There are several things to note about this parable. First, only one class will finally be saved – the ones who brought forth much fruit. The groups represented by the wayside and rocks will not be saved. In verse 12, the wayside hearers did not have a chance to “believe and be saved,” but in the next verse the stony ground hearers do “for a while believe.” What kind of “believing” is this? According to verse 12, it is the kind that saves. So the ones who believed for a while were saved for a while, but in time of temptation they fell away. Eventually, of course, they were lost along with all the others, except the fruit-bearers. Here is an unequivocal teaching of our Lord that people can have a saving faith for a while, and yet lose it and be lost.

Talking yourself into believing this lie is really a horrible thing. Our minds are very strong things, and when we do not wish to hear certain things, we then become stubborn fools and just go on believing this nonsense, to our own detriment. People open your heart your eyes and ears and hear the Lord. He will show you clearly in His word the truth. The Holy Spirit leads us into all truth and gives us remembrance and guides and directs us along the right paths, if we allow. I am not talking about how about it Lord??? Then moving on with no answer, no seek the truth and you will find it, with all your heart seek it. You do not want to be wrong in this.

I am going to list all the verses that say clearly the answer to all of this truth that one certainly can lose their salvation. If I wrote them all out it would take pages to do. I have already 5 pages worth here. Please do not be lazy in this it is detrimental to your eternity to understand this. Pull out your bible pray earnestly seeking the Lord to fill you with the understanding that the Holy Spirit only can give you. Ask for eyes to see and ears to hear, and a pure heart to understand. Ask the Lord to help you get rid of your preconceived notions, and what you have been taught by well meaning, but wrong pastors. I know you love your pastor but he is a man, he was taught also.

John 15:5-6, I am writing these 2 out due to the importance of them. These are red letter verses please understand what Jesus is saying here. 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. 6 If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. He is clearly saying if you do not remain in me here folks. Simple you will wither and die and be thrown into the fire. Huge, Humongous meaning in two simple verses. The Lord Himself saying truth right here for all to see.

Heb 6:4-8, 1Tim 4:1, Matt 10:22, Luke 12:45-46, Matt 5:13, Ezek 33:18 <<< that is a biggie. It still matters, for the Lord says, the whole bible in 2 Tim 3:16, is good for instruction correction and so on and so forth. Exodus 32:33, Psalm 69:28, these are more about blotting your name out of the book of life, these Old Testament verses. It has always been understood the Lord is never changing. Just because Jesus came and fulfilled the requirements, does not mean the instruction from the OT is done away with. Jesus fulfilled the law in all His ways, and now it is written on our hearts. He gave us two commandments one Love the Lord your God with all your heart soul and mind. Two love your neighbor as yourself.

2 Pet 2:20-22, 1 Cor 13:2, Phil2:12, Matt 10:28, 1 John 2:24-25, Matt 6:15, James 2:24, this is a biggie here too. 24 Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only. You need to see what justified means. Justified,=To be just or right: Theology. To declare innocent or guiltless; absolve; acquit. 1. vindicate; validate. 2. excuse. See to be right to be innocent, guiltless. And so on. Even though Jesus paid for our past sins and the slate has been wiped clean, now you’re working to keep that slate clean. Each time you sin you must repent and then the slate gets wiped clean once again. But if you decide to not repent then your goose is cooked. Then your slate has marks on it. Dirty filthy greasy marks

James said a man is not only justified by faith but by his works as well. Deciding you have no part in maintaining your salvation is a fool’s errand. It is detrimental to remaining in Him that you be doers of the word, not only hearers. James 2:14, James 2:20, Rev 3:5, Matt 5:22, James 2:19. 2 Thess 1:8, Heb 10:26, Matt 12:32, Matt 7:21, 1 Cor 9:27, Paul even said he was afraid to be disqualified. Let’s look at that word as well. Disqualified = to deprive of legal, official, or other rights or privileges; declare ineligible or unqualified. Ineligible, makes big sense here. I love words and know words big time. I honestly found it wonderful to study words and their meaning as a child. We have to look at what the words mean here people. Then we can have a more full understanding of what the Lord is speaking of. One more explanation of the word disqualified. To deprive of the right to participate in or win a contest because of a violation of the rules.

1 Cor 10:12, 1 Pet1:15-16, Romans 11:22, 2 Pet 3:1-2, 1 John 2:28, Matt 18:9, Read all of Matthew 18 for a stronger clearer understanding of the verse. Mark 9:47-48, Heb 3:13-14, Rev 2:5, Rev 3:5, Rev 17:8. Friends we have got to get all of this straight. We must be pure and holy as our Father in Heaven is Holy. We must be perfect or as near perfect as we can possibly be. Striving always to be better than we were. We must constantly be learning to walk along side of Jesus. He called us friends; friends walk side by side, neither in front, nor in back but side by side. You have to decide for yourself do you want to be Jesus friend? Or do you want to be a friend of the world?

We cannot be eternally secure unless our faith is eternally fixed on Jesus. We must run the race to win. Not to faint and fall away from it then we will not receive the prize. Read that from Paul in 1Cor 9:24. I know you want that prize. I want you to understand something here. Those who take the mark are dead to the Lord, their name gets blotted out of the book of life. There is no pre tribulation rapture so those who believe these horrible lies are doomed. If you believe your safe because Jesus did it all, that lie will show you up as a fool in a hurry on judgment day. Jesus paid the price he took our place for our sin payment, but we have to as he said in John remain in Him and He remain in us. He will not leave you but you can choose to walk away from Him.

We still have free will folks. He never took that from us. We are free to choose to continue walking in Him, or to walk away. The Lord is not a game player. He does not respect your thoughts and your ways of getting around His very stern warnings. Jesus spoke more of hell than He did heaven. This is not a hopeless thing, no it is hopeful. Think about it this way, Satan has been lying since day one. He lied to Eve and said surely you won’t die in Genesis. She bought the lie and brought death upon the world once the man ate of the fruit. What makes more sense you can lose your salvation therefore you’re going to work your tail off to stay in the masters good graces, or are you going to believe satans lies, and believe you cannot lose your salvation? Satan wants you to lose your salvation. He wants you to think you can go ahead and sin your butt off, and never lose your place in God’s eyes, or His eternity.

Don’t take the Lord for granted. Divorces are forged all the time, due to one or the other partner taking the other for granted. Taking advantage of the others good graces. This is not lovely or right it is dirty and terrible and sad for all concerned. Do not be dirty and manipulative with the word of the Lord, to suit yourself. You have to see the word in truth and with the help of the Holy Spirit. I pray you will understand this very important thing once and for all. I pray that for those who read this Father in the name of Jesus. I pray Lord help them see the truth Lord!

Love in Christ Jesus,

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”

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
