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 fathom how it is that people cannot, through the entire scriptures of the day of the Lord, or the day of Jesus Wrath, or the day of wrath, see what is plainly stated in the word. What it will all look like. My hope in this article is to make it clear to all of you, as it is to myself, what that day will look like. I read the word and see so clearly what the day of the Lord will be, and that it is one day only. It is His wrath that He has stored up since He last destroyed the earth and left a mere eight people to begin it over.

I have seen many claim that the wrath of God is the entire 7 years of tribulation, no sorry it is not. I have seen people state it is the last 3.5 years of the tribulation period, no it is not! People claim it is the trumpets and vials in the book of Revelation, because in Chapter 6 it states the nations were angry and your wrath has come, but it is ignored that in the trumpets and vials at the end of those two sets of “JUDGMENTS” it says it again, your wrath has come. So do they believe that God’s wrath comes three times?

Let’s look at those verses that say this very important set of words. Maybe we can glean together what He means by this all. Rev 6:16-17 They told the mountains and the rocks, “Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him who sits on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb, 17 for the great day of his wrath has come; and who is able to stand?” So what are the people of earth talking about here? And does Jesus come show His angry face to the inhabitants of the earth only to take his face back up, reclose the sky, and relight the sun and moon? But then come back at the 7th trumpet, then go back and then come back at the 7th vial? Makes no sense right?

Now look at Rev 11:18 but pay very close attention here as it adds something new. The nations were angry, and your wrath came, as did the time for the dead to be judged, and to give your bondservants the prophets, their reward, as well as to the saints, and those who fear your name, to the small and the great; and to destroy those who destroy the earth.” Wow wait a minute here say what? The dead to be judged? But isn’t that the resurrection? But isn’t that when Jesus comes back to rapture us, as people call it? The dead in Christ rise first then we which are alive and remain shall be changed in a moment in the twinkling of an eye! YES!!

I need also to point out something here. The pre tribulation people as well as the pre wrath crowd ignore the fact that Jesus and Paul said at the last trump he comes. Clearly here at the last trumpet Jesus comes, He raises the dead and judges them. So to say that the trumpets are God’s wrath, is way off base. As well the pre tribbers claim the 7th or last trumpet is going to occur at the feast of trumpets. Hmmmm so I guess God maybe had better go speak to these men and get His story right, they seem to know better than He does, what His word means!

Now look at Revelation 15:1 some say God’s wrath is completed, some say finished King James says it right on this verse. And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvellous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God. So His wrath is not done, not over with, but filled up. The Holy Spirit says to my heart that what this means is His wrath has come to it’s boiling over point. Jesus comes in wrath, not before the wrath of God is filled up, but when it has come to it’s fullness, then it boils over. That my friends is Armageddon, that occurs in the valley of Megidoo. That is where the sword that comes out of the mouth of Jesus is used to fillet men where they stand.

I know this can be quite confusing! As I was writing this I was sitting here going, oh but wait Lord, am I getting this wrong? But He said to my heart read on child, and I will give you understanding. It speaks of the wrath being poured out of the bowls or vials depending on the version you read, but then it says that these are plagues, and as you read other verses in the bible of what the great and terrible day of the Lord will look like, then you can fully appreciate that indeed these are plagues, and or judgment, not His wrath poured out. The judgments are Gods anger for sure, but not the completion of His wrath.

These plagues are meant to make men realize that God is God and to repent, but a couple verses of chptr 16 shows men repented not of their sin. Verses 9 and 11 speak of the men blaspheming God and not repenting of their deeds. After God has the angel pour out the 7th vial He then pours out wrath on Great Babylon who has had the whole earth drink from her cup of fornication. Look at verse 15 of chapter 16 of Revelation. This verse here the Lord pretty nearly smacked me in the face with it LOL. He said now see this here, and realize you are all still there on earth.

15 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. So He (Jesus) has not come as of yet. We are told a few times he comes as a thief, and those who think he has come as a thief silently, secretly, are sadly deeply mistaken. Because how many times does He come like a thief only to come as a thief again? It does not mean in secret nor in silence, it means unanounced before hand. A thief does not tell when he will rob a house, or you would be ready for him, and his task would be foiled. Jesus says I come when no man knows the day or the hour. I come without advance warning. I come when you least expect me.

The Lord in Revelation chapter one no less, says every eye shall see His coming. We are going to hear it as well. There is the Angel in the heavens shouting, there is the 7th trumpet, there is the ripping away of the sky or the heavens that rolls up like a scroll. That dear friends, is going to sound like something you never imagined you would ever hear. Then we see Him in His anger for those evil doers who repent not of their deeds. We all of us will not be able to stand under the onslaught of His anger and wrath that He appears with. Only when we have become changed in that blink of an eye will we then be taken up to meet him and those who had been reunited with their bodies in the heavenlies.

As I was praying this morning over this article, that I began a week ago, The Lord hit me with such a revelation as to almost knock me off my feet with it. I actually let out a little scream of wonder at it, and marveled that no one has ever thought of this before. My goodness it is so clear! But I will make you all wait as I show what it will look like, the day of God’s wrath, and then when we ask what it wont look like, is the spot that God slapped this amazing revelation on me. God my friends and family, and strangers alike, is so amazingly awesome. He gives us what we need when we need it and understanding when we seek to know it, flows into us. Sometimes that Revelation is a calmly placed word, sometimes it has the power to knock you off your feet. But always it is a blessing.

Now let’s look at these verses, no one ever seems to look at, as to what God’s fury and wrath will look like. “For the great day of His wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?” (Rev. 6: 17.) Okay this one the pre wrath rapture team speaks of as God’s wrath coming, and though they are partially right they are also wrong due to the fact that they believe that the trumpets and vials are God’s wrath because of that entire verse. Because it says now His great wrath has come, they say oh okay so the trumpets and vials are the wrath, because they come after this. But truly it is not that, and my hope is to show in another piece to this with this new revelation, how we know that they are not separate, and they do not occur chronologically.

But look who can stand in the day of His wrath is my point here. No one will be able to stand in the day of the onslaught of His anger, His very wrath. “The wicked are overthrown. and are not: but the house of the righteous shall stand” (Prov. 12:7) So when we see this particular phrase used in the bible before, he was then he was not for the Lord took him away, Gen 5:24. That was speaking of Enoch. We know when the word speaks of he was not, it means their gone. in this case however God did not take them to be in heaven with Him, He kills them. I will show this clearly as we move along.

Now look here again in Revelation at the last trumpet His wrath is mentioned again. “And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants, the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy (corrupt) the earth” (Rev. 11:18).So hmmm now the wrath is coming again? After the supposed wrath of the 7 trumpets His wrath comes again in the form of the vials? Or could it be another description of the judgments of God? Or is it just a deeper description from the seals?

In Revelation 15 we see the 7 angels being handed the 7 last PLAGUES, and it says something here that always caught my attention once I stopped believing the fairy tale of a pre-tribulation rapture. In verse one alone, is where I received a great understanding that the vials are not the wrath of God, as people think they are. But that with the pouring out of these vials, the wrath of God would come to it’s completeness. Like the straw that broke the camels back so to speak. He has poured out judgment after judgment upon the men of earth, and rather than realizing He is there, which they have no way of denying He exists at this point, instead of coming to Him and repenting, they are actually now openly blaspheming Him. Thus Now His wrath, with these last seven plagues comes to it’s fullness He is ready to explode. As with all past prophecies John’s is no different, they move forward and back and then forward and back, to complete a picture.

15:1 Then I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvelous: seven angels having the seven last plagues, for in them the wrath of God is complete. Also the word here for wrath is not Orge but instead Thymos. There is a distinction between the word Thymos and Orge. Orge is wrath fully and completely wrath, but Thymos is anger. The translators played a game with words too often to even count, and therefore have made it hard to make a distinction between words unless you do a Greek study of it. Like the word church was never used, that word is Ekklesia which means chosen or elect of God. It was used to describe the Israelites in the OT, and is supposed to be used in the New Testament, at least this is what a study I did one day has shown me. I love words and word studies is one of the things I do best.

Now I want to go to the old testament and do a nice search there of what God’s wrath looked like to those who were given visions of it. “At his wrath the earth shall tremble, and the nations shall not be able to abide his indignation” (Jer. 10:10). I am getting a clear picture here myself with also Jesus words in Matthew 24:29-31 He describes everything that is in seal 6 trumpet 7 and vial 7. I personally see, and am quite sure, that the half hour of silence at seal 7, is the rapture, the taking up of the saints. “Who shall stand when he appeareth?” (Mal. 3:2).

“The mountains quake at him, and the hills melt, and the earth is burned at his presence, yea, the world, and all that dwell therein. Who can stand before his indignation? and who can abide in the fierceness of his anger? His fury is poured out like fire, and the rocks are thrown down by him. The Lord is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him. But with an overrunning flood he will make an utter end of the place thereof, and darkness shall pursue his enemies” (Nah. 1:5-8). Now we’re getting somewhere. Hmmm great melting heat I have seen a few people say that God uses a nuke LOL. What need has God of a man made weapon of mass destruction, when a word spoken is enough to destroy everything He ever created? People try so hard to ascribe manly characteristics to God, but God is so much bigger than mankind. He is so much more than we can even come close to understanding.

Job as well knew about the day of wrath coming and this is what he said. “that thou wouldest hide me in the grave, that thou wouldest keep me secret, until thy wrath be past, that thou wouldest appoint me a set time, and remember me!” (Job 14:13). 2 Before the decree is issued, Or the day passes like chaff, Before the Lord’s fierce anger comes upon you, Before the day of the Lord’s anger comes upon you! 3 Seek the Lord, all you meek of the earth, Who have upheld His justice. Seek righteousness, seek humility. It may be that you will be hidden in the day of the Lord’s anger.(Zeph 2:2-3). We can clearly see no one wants to be in the DAY OF THE LORDS WRATH!

Zeph 1:14-15,18 “The great day of the Lord is near–near and coming quickly. Listen! The cry on the day of the Lord will be bitter… That day will be a day of wrath, a day of distress and anguish… In the fire of his jealousy the whole world will be consumed, for he will make a sudden end of all who live in the earth.” Isa 66:15-16 “See, the Lord is coming with fire, and his chariots are like a whirlwind; he will bring down his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire. For with fire and with his sword the Lord will execute judgment upon all men, and many will be those slain by the Lord… Ps 69:24 Pour out your wrath on them, let your fierce anger overtake them. Ps 76:10 Surely your wrath against men brings you praise, and the survivors of your wrath are restrained.

Ah so here we see there will be survivors. Totally different article, but the point needs to be made, there are suvivors the world over after the wrath is poured out. Those who did not take the mark, and those who did not come to the valley of Megiddo to fight against the Lord in the final battle, the one called Armageddon. That is when Jesus comes and executes the wrath of God. It is also called by the apostle Paul the day of Christ. Why would Paul say this? Because Jesus is God was God and is coming to execute the wrath of God. He comes with flames and anger, and with His sword, with which He will fillet men where they stand with just the words out of His mouth. Paul speaks of it being Jesus in many places, I will simply put them down without writing them all out. Please go study them on your own. I may put them in here later we shall see how the Lord takes this and moves it. 1 Corinthians 1.8, 3.13, 5.5; 2 Corinthians 1.14; Philippians 1.6, 10, 2.16; 2 Timothy 1.18, 4.8.

Many people do not understand what the goat and sheep judgement is. It is the survivors, those on earth who for some reason, did not take the mark of the beast and survived all the evil turmoil upon the earth, in those times. All people left alive on the earth who did not come to the battle of Armageddon, will then come to Jerusalem and be judged. Some will be thrown into hell and some will come into the kingdom to live with the Lord, and we who are immortal human beings, who are kings and priests, over some of these very people at this judgment of Christ. For some reason people just cannot wrap their head around there being people alive after the fiery judgment at the battle of Armageddon, or the day of the Lord, or the day of His wrath. But there are!

They say it makes no sense at all, how can anyone survive fire brought upon the earth. But isn’t the God of the bible, the Only God there is, Isn’t He big enough fortuitous enough, to send that fire where He wills and to protect those whom He wants to protect? People make God so small, they box Him in to their own idea of who He is. God does not fit in your boxes. He is who He is, rather you accept Him for the truth of who He is, or not. God is just huge and who can truly know Him? Through out our studies of His word we get glimpses of who He is and how large He is, but never will we know fully who He is! He is so multifaceted that even a diamond and all it’s facets cannot compare to how magnificent the Lord our God is. The depths and lengths of Him and the Love will never truly be plumbed. That dear friends is exactly as He likes it.

Moving forward! In Isaiah 13:6-13 we see, Wail, for the day of the Lord is at hand! It will come as destruction from the Almighty. Therefore all hands will be limp, every man’s heart will melt, and they will be afraid. Pangs and sorrows will take hold of them; they will be in pain as a woman in childbirth; they will be amazed at one another; their faces will be like flames. Behold, the day of the Lord comes, cruel, with both wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate; and He will destroy its sinners from it. For the stars of heaven and their constellations will not give their light; the sun will be darkened in its going forth, and the moon will not cause its light to shine. “I will punish the world for its evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; I will halt the arrogance of the proud, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible. I will make a mortal more rare than fine gold, a man more than the golden wedge of Ophir. Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth will move out of her place, in the wrath of the Lord of hosts and in the day of His fierce anger.”

Let’s look together at Zechariah chapter 14. this is such a huge revelation at the plans on that DAY! The whole of this chapter describes this one day event in great detail. So forgive me for the space this will take but it must be written out completely to get this divine revelation of that day. 14 Behold, the day of the Lord is coming, And your spoil will be divided in your midst. 2 For I will gather all the nations to battle against Jerusalem; The city shall be taken,
The houses rifled, And the women ravished. Half of the city shall go into captivity, but the remnant of the people shall not be cut off from the city.
3 Then the Lord will go forth and fight against those nations, as He fights in the day of battle.

Look too, the remnant of the people shall not be cut off from the city. So here we see there are a remnant alive, and these will not be cut off from the city. 4 And in that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, Which faces Jerusalem on the east. And the Mount of Olives shall be split in two, from east to west, making a very large valley; half of the mountain shall move toward the north and half of it toward the south. 5 Then you shall flee through My mountain valley, for the mountain valley shall reach to Azal. Yes, you shall flee as you fled from the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah. Thus the Lord my God will come, and all the saints with You.

The saints with Him, so we have been taken up, as He revealed Himself in the heavens the angel shouts, reap for the earth is ripe for reaping, Rev 14 then He sends out, just like he said, in Matthew 24 His angels to gather together from the four corners of the earth and heavens, His own. First the dead in Christ, get reunited with their bodies, then we which are alive and remain, get taken up by the angels, after which we have been changed in the blink of an eye, from mortals to incorruptible immortals. Per 1 Cor 15:51-52. Carrying on in Zechariah, verse 6 It shall come to pass in that day that there will be no light; the lights will diminish. 7 It shall be one day which is known to the Lord—Neither day nor night. But at evening time it shall happen that it will be light. Look at that one day only yet people all the time trick themselves into believing the day of the Lord is a 3.5 year period, and or a 7 year period. It is clear what the Lord is saying here ONE DAY!

The next few verses I will skip over, due to the fact that these are what is going on in the Millennial kingdom. Now onto verses 12 to 15. 12 And this shall be the plague with which the Lord will strike all the people who fought against Jerusalem: Their flesh shall dissolve while they stand on their feet, their eyes shall dissolve in their sockets, and their tongues shall dissolve in their mouths. 13 It shall come to pass in that day that a great panic from the Lord will be among them. Everyone will seize the hand of his neighbor, and raise his hand against his neighbor’s hand; 14 Judah also will fight at Jerusalem. and the wealth of all the surrounding nations Shall be gathered together: Gold, silver, and apparel in great abundance. 15 Such also shall be the plague on the horse and the mule, on the camel and the donkey, and on all the cattle that will be in those camps. So shall this plague be.

This my family in the Lord, is what the Lord’s wrath looks like! This is all consuming fire. This is men being filleted by the double edged sword that proceeds out of the mouth of Jesus. This is the Word of God! This is the Lord executing His own Wrath! Let’s see what it looks like elsewhere in the New testament we see in Revelation chapter 14 again, v20 And the wine press was trampled outside the city, and blood came out of the wine press, up to the horses’ bridles, for one thousand six hundred furlongs. this is Jesus treading the wine press. Let’s look also at Isaiah 63 verses 1-6.

Isaiah 63 Who is this that cometh from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah? this that is glorious in his apparel, travelling in the greatness of his strength? I that speak in righteousness, mighty to save. 2 Wherefore art thou red in thine apparel, and thy garments like him that treadeth in the winefat? 3 I have trodden the winepress alone; and of the people there was none with me: for I will tread them in mine anger, and trample them in my fury; and their blood shall be sprinkled upon my garments, and I will stain all my raiment. 4 For the day of vengeance is in mine heart, and the year of my redeemed is come. 5 And I looked, and there was none to help; and I wondered that there was none to uphold: therefore mine own arm brought salvation unto me; and my fury, it upheld me. 6 And I will tread down the people in mine anger, and make them drunk in my fury, and I will bring down their strength to the earth.

The Lord Himself says He Himself will tread the wine press, no on else He Himself, no angel no Human will help Him He will do this alone. One day and only one day! Isaiah 34 v 8 also says 8 For it is the day of the Lord’s vengeance, and the year of recompenses for the controversy of Zion. Isa 35:4 Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompence; he will come and save you. I am just trying to make clear to you all, that the Lord Himself is the one who pours out wrath. The one who does all of the day of the Lord, alone. Now when doing all of this and praying, I asked the Lord so what does your day of vengeance look like? He said why don’t you ask me what it does not look like.

The tribulation is not God’s wrath! Let me help you to see something that is just so clear to be seen, but so many misunderstand. Angels do not pour out God’s wrath. Jesus does! But in Revelation while we see Jesus opening the seals, The angels are given the trumpets and the vials. While it says in triplicate that your wrath has come, you have to really study to get that understanding The seals are Jesus introduction to the judgment, the trumpets have always been warning, and the vial is the consummation of the judgment, or the completion. Wrath is so much more scary than the judgments, because it is going to be seen across the whole world at one time!

It is time to look at Revelation chapter 16 and see His the great day of the Lord mentioned. Look at 16:1 from the Waymouth bible calls it judgment not wrath. Also other translations say judgments, some say anger. As I said earlier anger is not wrath in Greek they are two different words Thymos and Orge. But I am specifically looking for the wrath coming in these verses of chptr 16. Verse 7 has the angel telling the Lord these judgments are right.7 And I heard another from the altar saying, “Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are Your judgments.” So the angels who pour out these vials know it is God’s anger. Verse 9 also calls these plagues. 9 And men were scorched with great heat, and they blasphemed the name of God who has power over these plagues; and they did not repent and give Him glory.

Look at verse 14 we need to see something here, it is mentioned the great day of the Lord. 14 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that (great day of God Almighty). 15 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. Again here is Jesus saying He comes as a thief. He says in Rev 3:3 Rev 16:15 and then all over the NT we see Christ saying watch I come quickly and the disciples telling us he comes as a thief. If he came as a thief already then why would He say at the second to the last vial being poured out, I come as a thief? Now at the 7th vial we see the angel saying it is done! The angels job is done. But look here comes the wrath.

In verse 14 of chp 16 we see that the vial is poured out to dry up the river Euphrates so that the way of the kings from the east for the great battle, the day of God Almighty. This is the only mention of the day of the Lord in these sets of verses but read for yourselves and see the angels themselves over and over again call these judgments, not His wrath. They also call them plagues. So honestly it is a case of mistaken words used for anger rather than wrath. In Chapter 15 also it goes back and forth between plagues judgments and wrath.

This is what the Lord said to me when I was praying, Father show me what your wrath looks like in the word? After pouring out the verses into my heart that I have read over the years, and bringing them to my remembrance, He then spoke to me and said, ask me what my wrath does not look like! I said yeah Lord what doesn’t it look like? He said it does not look like angels pouring it out, which they are doing with the judgments. I the Lord will have My vengeance Myself! I will repay. Romans 12:19 Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord. But the wrath of God is not scary for us who are His own. God’s wrath is a reaction. It is a reaction to everything that contradicts His good, loving and just character.

God’s wrath is an expression of His love. God is love, so when He acts wrathfully, He acts in accordance with His loving nature. The wrath of God is His love in action. This is why you never need fear His wrath. 1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. By this time we will be that perfect blemish free, wrinkle free bride, that God will give to His son. We will have been through so much turmoil tribulation and trial that we will have been tried by the fire and not found wanting. In 1 Peter 4:1 For as much then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin; We will have suffered enough that we are made perfect by it. Hallelujah!

Also I want to help you see something quite amazing. The Lord sits as a refiner of silver in the OT it says this. The refiner of silver and gold knows his metal is ready because he sees his own reflection looking back at him. The Lord when He looks upon this earth and sees His own reflection looking back at Him then, will end it all. It speaks of this in Zechariah and Malachi. Isaiah and Daniel speak of trying us in the furnace of affliction, we are to be tried by fire people. We need to have the dross and the worthless unfruitful things drawn off the top, that much heat or pressure brings out of us. The tribulation is to try men and see how much they will take in this life, to have eternity with the Lord. He reads hearts and knows us better than we know ourselves. Tribulation shows us who we are and how abiding our love is of the Lord and how enduring it is. He wants bought up sold out people for eternity. Those who love Him above anyone or anything, even their own lives.

whoever loves their life will lose it and whoever loses their life will find it, Matt 10:39. And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved. Matt 10:22, Matt 24:13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. Time and again we see this admonition, that whoever endures till the end, the same shall be saved. He is coming and His reward is with Him and we are truly redeemed when He comes back. He knows who is staying with Him and who is not going to. Are you one who will remain in Him no matter what occurs? No matter how much you must suffer? No people this is not gloom and doom this is hope. What can we not achieve being in Christ? We can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens us, Phil 4.

What I find so heartbreaking is that so many cannot fathom suffering for this wonderful eternal bliss that is offered us. They cannot fathom let alone prepare themselves for the hell that is coming upon this earth, from satan and his minions, who will be as in the days of Noah, walking among us. People do not read nor prepare for what is coming. They fool themselves with this fake good news that Christ is coming for them before any of the evil is completely let loose upon this earth. It does not for them, have an ounce of reality in it. When they are standing in it, they’re going to be so frozen with dread and fear they will be immobilized and will be so shocked they will just go with the flow. This is why I say oh yes it is a salvation iussue. Pre tribulation rapture when it does not occur, and have no doubts, it is not happening like that, the word is very clear on this score, people will actually accuse God of lying to them.

There is already a huge apostasy happening, all over the place and it is getting easier and easier to see. But there is an even greater apostasy coming and even the luke warm will completely walk away, as will some of the mediocre crowd, and even some who are quite on fire for the Lord will walk away. Those who do not walk in the Holy Spirit will be walking away. This time is not a time for men alone to stand, it will only be the Lord who holds us up under the onsluaght of satans wrath. The only way that happens is for one to be walking completely in the Lord’s Holy Spirit. We are they who are now preparing in every way. Physically spiritually and mentally to stand up under it. Especially spiritually. We speak truth know truth and diligently seek truth. We accept that we do not have all the answers, and we turn deeper into the Lord, for the truths that even hurt to be spoken to us, and to each other.

Do not be fooled truth most often hurts. Being chastened and pruned, and dead ends cut off always hurts. The Lord warns us of this clearly. He disciplines those He loves. He chastens His own. He builds us and molds us and makes us more and more into the image of His son, and that is not pretty. It is hard and rough and most often we cry out Lord how much more can I take? And He says calmly I am right here as much as I do to you, I do for you. As much as I do for you, I also hold you up and fortify you, all things are possible through Christ! So we stay in Him. We stay connected to the vine and we are not cut off but held up and fortified. In our weakness He is strong. So we can do it we surely can do it, through Him and through Him alone can we live through all that is coming. Believing fables will surely get you killed in the end.

In Closing I want you all to understand what we see when we see God’s wrath being poured out from Christ, it does not look like plagues which seals trumpets and vials are, it is fiery and a blood bath the likes of which no one anywhere can even imagine. Men will be consumed where they stand their bodies will melt they will look at each other and marvel as they watch each other disintegrate. The Lord Himself pours out the wrath. Through out the word we see again and again He says I will repay. I take my vengeance. We are told not to have vengeance that the Lord will more than make up for all our suffering by evil men. I hope this helps people to see the truth of the matter. Wrath is poured out by Christ plagues and judgments are given by the Lord to the angels to pour out.

Gen 6:3 And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. I see this often used as a verse to say that God said, He will not always have his Spirit striving with man, so therefore it must be the Holy Spirit that restrains sin and as soon as the church is removed from the earth then sin will be free to take hold. They do not understand that unless the Holy Spirit make one say Jesus is Lord, they wont say it, think, or feel it.

So let’s see what did Jesus have to say about all of this. Let’s see how Jesus meant the Holy Spirit to be used during the time He is here, and when we (humans) will no longer need Him, (the Holy Spirit) here.

The Work of the Holy Spirit

John 16:5-15 “But now I go away to Him who sent Me, and none of you asks Me, ‘Where are You going?’ 6 But because I have said these things to you, sorrow has filled your heart. 7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you. 8 And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: 9 of sin, because they do not believe in Me; 10 of righteousness, because I go to My Father and you see Me no more; 11 of judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged.

12 “I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. 13 However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. 14 He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you. 15 All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He will take of Mine and declare it to you.

So Jesus is saying if He is here there is no need of the Holy Spirit to be here, and God would not send Him? But if he goes then the father will send the what? The comforter! So then we see in 1 Corinthians 12:1-3 Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I do not want you to be ignorant: 2 You know that you were Gentiles, carried away to these dumb idols, however you were led. 3 Therefore I make known to you that no one speaking by the Spirit of God calls Jesus accursed, and no one can say that Jesus is Lord except by the Holy Spirit.

Oh, Oh dear, look at that! Paul says in verse 3 no one can call Jesus Lord except by the Holy Spirit. That in itself says clearly, no one would, ever could, come to the Lord if the Holy Spirit were not present. Therefore though the people believing these discombobulated notions as truth, have a chink in the argument that they cannot fight against, they stubbornly stick to their guns and say it is spiritually discerned. But I tell you the truth they have no spirit of truth in them. No one can come to the Father by any other means than through the Son, and the Holy Spirit has to give them that knowledge, that Christ is Lord.

If the Holy Spirit is not here, and Christ is not here, then no one could or would be saved in the times of the tribulation. Then now let’s think of the 144,000. They are spirit led men of God. Doing miraculous things in the time of the tribulation. Man can do nothing other than by the Holy Spirit. There would be no tongues to speak to people all over the planet, in languages they never used before. There could be no healing ministries, no knowledge no wisdom, none of it would be going on. Yet the Lord says in the end times He will pour out His spirit fully upon all men women, and children even. Acts 2:17, Joel 2:28.

Even those who believe in a pre tribulation rapture cannot deny that the Lord said this. So how could it be that His spirit has departed but people are still acting on the spiritual gifts? It is a major contradiction. So then you have those who say it is a mid tribulation rapture. But still those also believe in two separate comings of the Lord. Yet the bible speaks clearly of one time only. The day of the Lord as Jesus return. You also then have those who say that the 6th seal is the rapture and though they are right, they are also wrong because they believe in two separate comings of the Lord Jesus. They also believe that the trumpet and vial judgments are separate from the seals and that is not true.

Then we also have Paul speaking of the 7th or last trumpet and Christ coming, as does Christ also speak of the trump of God, and the angels being sent out to gather his people from the four winds. From the four corners of the earth. They both speak of the angel shouting which is also present at the 6th seal the 7th trumpet and the 7th vial. The word of God is truth and not only truth but so simple of truth. Remember He made the truth simple to confound the wise. Or those who believe themselves wise. But they have earthly wisdom which is not Godly wisdom, 1 Cor 1:27. I wish that people stopped allowing men to speak into their hearts and would just allow, nothing but the Holy Spirit to speak. For He alone speaks truth, men will muddy up those good clean waters that the Holy Spirit pours out.

The holy spirit is God who lives in us, when we are immersed in the Holy Spirit. It is a separate thing from being born again. Let’s look at what Jesus said about this as well. Matt 3:11 “I baptize you with water for repentance, but he who is coming after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. So John the baptist could only baptize one in water. But Jesus was there to baptize in the Holy Spirit with Fire. There is a difference it is clear to see. In John 14:26 Jesus said, But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.

Let’s look closer at what Jesus had to say about the Holy Spirit!

Luke 11:13 If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!” John 14:15-18 15 “If you love Me, keep My commandments. 16 And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever— 17 the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. 18 I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you. So Jesus is telling us in essence as long as the Holy spirit is sent to us, He Jesus is with us!

John 20:21-23 Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I am sending you.” And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you withhold forgiveness from any, it is withheld.” This was after Jesus came back from the dead. But he also told them to wait until the day of pentecost before they went to do anything. Why would he do that? Because without the full blown baptism of the Holy Spirit they would simply be men doing what men can do and not men used of the Holy Spirit. They would be powerless to do the works of the Lord. I believe when He breathed on them that He was marking them with the seal of God. That they would be the first to receive the power of the Holy Spirit.

Acts 1:4,5 And being assembled together with them, He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father, “which,” He said, “you have heard from Me; 5 for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.” You see just one book later, and a mere chapter later, from John’s last chapter of the book of John, The Lord told them do nothing until the gift the Father promised has come upon you.
Now let’s look at what happened when the Holy Spirit was poured out on them the day of pentecost.

Acts 2:1-4 When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. 2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3 Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. The people near heard it all too and were astounded they thought they were drunk but not because of their actions, but because they spoke in other languages.

Acts 2:5-13 5 And there were dwelling in Jerusalem Jews, devout men, from every nation under heaven. 6 And when this sound occurred, the multitude came together, and were confused, because everyone heard them speak in his own language. 7 Then they were all amazed and marveled, saying to one another, “Look, are not all these who speak Galileans? 8 And how is it that we hear, each in our own language in which we were born? 9 Parthians and Medes and Elamites, those dwelling in Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, 10 Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya adjoining Cyrene, visitors from Rome, both Jews and proselytes, 11 Cretans and Arabs—we hear them speaking in our own tongues the wonderful works of God.” 12 So they were all amazed and perplexed, saying to one another, “Whatever could this mean?” 13 Others mocking said, “They are full of new wine.”

WARNING!! This is not an endorsement for being drunk in the Spirit. There is no such thing as that! That is a false disgusting thing that will destroy your spirit life and lead you astray. Stay away from people and pastors who teach such a false doctrine. If it is not in the Bible then it does not belong in your Christian life.

Moving forward there is much more to discuss about the Holy Spirit.John 16:13 When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. See this, none can do anything but the Holy Spirit be upon them. It is the very anointing of the Holy Spirit which gives anyone anywhere the ability to perform the gifts and works of the Lord. Also We cannot even retain or understand anything the word says lest the Holy Spirit be upon us. Look at 1 John 2:26-27 has to say about this.

1 John 2:26-27 26 These things I have written to you concerning those who try to deceive you. 27 But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him. look at that with the power of the Holy Spirit upon you giving you eyes to see and ears to hear, you need no one to teach you anything. The Holy Spirit teaches us in truth, there is no lie in Him. Men will lie to you and hurt and cheat you.

John 3:5-8 Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.” So now think about that would you? Jesus said one must be born of Water and Spirit.

If one is not born of the Spirit, or baptized in the Holy Spirit, or Immersed in Him, then you cannot even see heaven. It is separate from being born again. It is the next step up into the power of the Holy Spirit. The power to be able to walk in thegifts to speak boldly to have faith wisdom knowledge and all the gifts of the Spirit. We need to show the friuts of the Holy Spirit in our lives. Notice the word “And” between water and spirit. That does not say they are the same thing. Paul and all the apostles said the same thing, but have you been baptized in the spirit?

Why would they ask that if a person said they were born again or baptized into repentance? Why then must they ask the question but were you baptized in the Holy Spirit? Acts chapters 2,8,19, Because there is a difference. When one is on their death bed and accept the Lord there is no need to be baptized in the holy Spirit, they are not going to be working.

Though if they were to be baptized in the Holy Spirit, I can just about guarantee you, they would be healed instantly. But no one seems to understand in our day and age the very power of the Grace of God and the very power that we hold at our fingertips, if we but believe it. The problem is no one believes without wavering in our time. We have all been taught that the healing and well all of the gifts are not here.

We need to overcome this with the power of the Holy Spirit and ask for a huge measure of faith like we have never had before. Then sit back and watch the Lord give you what you ask for. How much more liberal would the Lord be, if we but asked for the right things? He would give until it hurts, if you trusted Him to do so. God is lavish with the gifts when we ask and then leave it alone.

What I mean by ask and leave it alone, is just ask Him once, then leave it at His throne and leave it alone. Do not come back and ask again just trust that what you have asked in the name of Jesus will be given to you. You do not have to ask again, worry it over in your mind and hope and hope and hope you’ll get it! Just trust and believe that at the first and only asking, it will be done! God is so faithful if we just show Him we believe in Him and His promises.

Lets Look at the Old Testament promises of the Holy Spirit! Jesus said after He was glorififed the Holy Spirit would come upon us. I personally think that Jesus uses fully the Holy Spirit when He is here and it cannot nor needs to be shared when He is present. For He is God/Son/Holy Spirit!

Ezekiel 36:26-27, the Lord says, “I will put my Spirit within you and cause you to walk in my ways.” Joel 2:28 also tell us the same as Acts 2:17.‘And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your young men shall see visions, Your old men shall dream dreams. Just a little something to ponder for you. When the Bereans were searching the scriptures for the truth being spoken by Paul and all apostles they did not have the new testament as of yet. So they had to be searching the old testament.

In searching the old Testament comparing verses to the New Testament I have found so many verses that cross reference one another. I have at times put those up on my facebook. I find that a lot of fun, to see the concepts of them and see clearly the word of God does not contradict itself. If for some reason you find anything that contradicts itself, it is your understanding that is flawed, or someone elses bad teaching.
The Holy Spirit is a He not just anything or a what or an it. The Holy Spirit is fully a part of the God head, the great three in one.

We must have the Holy Spirit in order to be saved, because you cannot see heaven unless you are baptized into the Holy Spirit as well as in water. Did you know, do you realize that when at first people became saved it was by being immersed in water and to the remission or repentance of sin? They were baptized in water unto repentance! How crazy is that? I wonder when did people decide to stop baptizing people into salvation? We have fallen so far away from the way it all worked in the beginning. It is our job through the power of the Holy Spirit to find where it all went wrong and come back to the true only way, which is Jesus Christ!

Peter in Acts 2:38,39 says 38 Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call.” NOW I WANT YOU PAY CLOSE ATTENTION to those words of Peters! To all ALL whom the Lord calls! We are all called out! The Gifts of the Holy Spirit were not just for the apostles. It is the indwelling power of the Holy Spirit which gives us boldness and wisdom and knowledge and all the gifts. Notice also this is separate from being born again!

The book of Acts must be read by all of us and very carefully so as not to miss the importance of pentecost. Pentecost was not a one time thing a one day only thing. It happens still, as long as the Holy Spirit is here, moving upon men and women, and even children, He is still here until the last day! I do not understand how people can allow themselves to be misled, by fallible human beings. When the word of God, is the final, and in my opinion, only authority on all subjects having to do with the bible. But then again if one does not believe in the gifts of the Holy Spirit, and that it is a separate baptism from the water baptism, they do not have the power to see hear, or know truth!

How sad it will be to see millions upon millions go to hell who lived a good life. One in which they thought they were doing the works of the Lord, but alas only to find out they did them on their own esteem, and that all in all they were dead works.Heb 6:1 Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,
Heb 9:14 How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?
A dead work is any work that we perform which has not been called for and begun by the Holy Spirit.

Assuming that you have accepted Christ as your savior, and repented, I hope you have repented! If not then your being lied to about being saved. Then you must also ask a spirit led person to pray over you for receiving the baptism in the Holy Spirit. Or you can learn all about this for yourself, and pray to Jesus to baptize you in the Holy Spirit. He is faithful and reads our hearts so well. He knows what it is you are honestly desiring and will give it to you. John 14:13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. Especially this prayer will be answered, because He wants you to have power to do the works He called you to.

In closing dear friends brothers and sisters in the Lord, I pray for you all to understand and that I might have helped you to see a little more clearly. Never ever take my word for anything. Always pray to the Lord to clarify for you anything, and always check your word for the concept of which the Lord is speaking to us. It needs to match up or else throw it out! I am not afraid of anyone checking behind me, because I know the lord is with me and I work always under the power of the Holy Spirit. More often than not when done doing one of these articles I proof read and am awed by the Lord using me, and I say oh Lord I know I did not write this! That is the coolest thing ever!
Blessings in Him,
Tammy

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

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

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

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

So let’s take a look at chapter 12 of Revelation. Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars. 2 Then being with child, she cried out in labor and in pain to give birth. 3 And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great, fiery red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his heads. 4 His tail drew a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to give birth, to devour her Child as soon as it was born. 5 She bore a male Child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her Child was caught up to God and His throne. 6 Then the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days.

13 Now when the dragon saw that he had been cast to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male Child. 14 But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent. 15 So the serpent spewed water out of his mouth like a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away by the flood.16 But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the flood which the dragon had spewed out of his mouth. 17 And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. I cannot understand how it is that people do not see here that those who are brought into the wilderness are not believing Israel. The rest of her offspring are we who believe in Christ as Messiah. We have been adopted as joint heirs with believing Israel.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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