Endtime Promises in the Bible

Endtime Promises in the Bible …

Psalm 84:1-2–“How lovely is your dwelling place, O LORD Almighty! My soul yearns, even faints, for the courts of the LORD; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God.”

Hebrews 9:28–“So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for Him shall He appear the second time without sin unto salvation.”

From Jesus Himself: John 14:1-3–“Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, trust also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back to take you to be with me, that you may also be where I am.”

Zephaniah 2:2-3–“BEFORE the decree bring forth, BEFORE the day pass as the chaff, BEFORE the fierce anger of the LORD come upon you, BEFORE the day of the LORD’s anger come upon you. Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the LORD’s anger.”

Isaiah 26:19-21–“Thy dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead. Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. For, behold, the Lord cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.”

1 Corinthians 15:51-52–“Behold, I show you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.”

Job 14:12-15–“So man lieth down, and riseth not: till the heavens be no more, they shall not awake, nor be raised out of their sleep. O 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! If a man die, shall he live again? all the days of my appointed time will I wait, till my change come. Thou shalt call, and I will answer thee: thou wilt have a desire to the work of thine hands.”

Song of Solomon 2:8-13–“The voice of my beloved! behold, he cometh leaping upon the mountains, skipping upon the hills. My beloved is like a roe or a young hart: behold, he standeth behind our wall, he looketh forth at the windows, shewing himself through the lattice. My beloved spake, and said unto me, Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away. For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone; The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land; The fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grape give a good smell. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.”

1 Thessalonians 4:16-18–“For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.”

Also from Jesus: Revelation 3:10–“Because you have kept the word of My patience, I also will KEEP you FROM the HOUR of temptation, which shall come UPON ALL THE WORLD, to try them that DWELL UPON THE EARTH.”

1 Thessalonians 5:9-11–“God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him. Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.”

2 Timothy 4:8–“Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto ALL them also that LOVE His appearing.”

James 5:7-8–“Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waits for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain. Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draws near.”

Colossians 3:1-4–“If you then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sits on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For you are dead, and your LIFE IS HID WITH CHRIST IN GOD. When Christ, who is our life SHALL APPEAR [in the the Pre-Tribulation Rapture], then shall you also appear WITH HIM in glory.”

1 John 3:2-3–“Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it does not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when He shall appear, we shall be LIKE HIM; for we shall see Him as He is. And every man that has this hope in Him purifies himself, even as He is pure.”

Titus 2:13–“Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ.”

It’s Not Just the Mayans

I know 2012 has come and gone and nothing major happened that we know of, the world didn’t end or anything, but I just wanted to repost this from my old blog because it has some very interesting things connected to it. Maybe nothing that we could see happened, but maybe some things happened in the spiritual realm which we couldn’t see???

Maranatha, Kitty  <^.^>

2012 – It’s Not Just the Mayans
By Carl Worline

According to Mayan legend, the deity Itzamna brought the knowledge of many things, including their series of calendars with cycles of different lengths. This system of calendars date back to the 5th century BC. and it rivals the accuracy and sophistication of our modern calendars that are based on the most precise astronomical measurements and observations. According to the Mayans, we are living in the fourth cycle of time, which began on August 11, 3114 B.C. (Gregorian), and will end on the December 21, 2012 winter solstice, when the next cycle will begin. The ancient Mayans believed that reaching the end of a 5,125 year cycle was an occasion for a great celebration, much like our New Years Eve celebrations, but there is no evidence to believe that the Mayans thought there would be an apocalypse of biblical proportions on this date. Any such notion is a modern fabrication and has nothing to do with the end of the world. Of course, those who the Mayan believed inhabited the earth during the first three cycles are long since extinct. They also believed that their flying dragon god Kulkulkan is going to return at the end of 2012.

If that is all that there was to the basis of the 2012 apocalyptic phenomena, then I would be the first to join in the mocking laughter of others. However, there is a little more to it. In the last chapter of their book, Petrus Romanus, The Final Pope is Here, Thomas Horn and Chris Putnam point out:

· The Mayan calendar ends in 2012 with the return of their flying dragon god Kulkulkan.

· The Aztec calendar ends in 2012 and their flying dragon god Quetzalcoatl returns.

· The Cherokee Indian calendar ends in the year 2012 and their flying rattlesnake god returns. The “Cherokee Rattlesnake Prophecies,” also known as the “Chickamaugan Prophecy” or the “Cherokee Star Constellation Prophecies,” are part of a series of apocalyptic prophecies made by members of the Cherokee tribe during 1811-1812. Like the Maya, the Cherokee calendar ends mysteriously in the year 2012 when astronomical phenomena related to Jupiter, Venus, Orion, and Pleiades cause the “powers” of the star systems to “awaken.”

· According to ancient Mayan inscriptions, in 2012 the Mayan underworld god Bolon Yokte Ku also returns.

· The Hindu Kali Yuga calendar ends in the year 2012 at the conclusion of the age of “the male demon.”

· According to the book, Apollyon Rising 2012, the prophecy of the Cumaean Sibyl on the Great Seal of the United States (novus ordo seclorum) points to the coming of the Antichrist in 2012.

· Over two hundred sixty years ago, the leader of the first Great Awakening in America, Jonathan Edwards, tied the arrival of the Antichrist and Great Tribulation period to the timeframe 2012.

· One hundred thirty years after that, in 1878, Reverend William J. Reid did the same, writing in his “Lectures on the Revelation” concerning the Papal system: “. . . we are prepared to answer the question, When will the Papal system come to an end? [It] will be destroyed in the year 2012.”

· Also of interest is the Web Bot Project, which was developed in the late 1990s for tracking and making stock predictions. This technology crawls the Internet, much like a search engine does, searching for keywords and following “chatter” in order to tap into “the collective unconscious” of the global community for tipping points regarding past, current, and future buying patterns. In 2001, operators began noticing what looked like more than coincidences, and that the “bot” was taking on a mind of its own, accurately predicting more than just stock market predictions, including June of 2001 when the program predicted than a life-altering event would be felt worldwide and would take place within sixty to ninety days. On September 11, 2001, the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center fell. The Web Bot also predicted the 2001 anthrax attack on Washington DC; the earthquake that produced the December 26, 2004, tsunami; Hurricane Katrina; and more. The Web Bot has now foretold global devastation for late December 2012.

· In 2012, the United States will elect a President.

· In 2012, the United Nations will get a new leader.

· And in 2012, Petrus Romanus is predicted to arrive during a Final Conclave. (pp 483-485)

The Prophecy of the Popes was written by the bishop of Armagh, Saint Malachy, in 1139 AD, when he was summoned to Rome by Pope Innocent II. While he was in Rome, Saint Malachy had a vision in which all future popes were revealed to him. He wrote down Latin phrases which described all of the 112 future popes. Our current pope, Benedict XVI, is number 111 on the list. Malachy has been incredibly accurate so far. If he continues to be this accurate, Benedict XVI will be replaced by the final pope, Petrus Romanus (Peter of Rome) in 2012, and Rome will be destroyed sometime shortly after that. As a possible note to his credibility, Malachy was attributed to several miracles, and was the first Irish saint to be canonized by a pope.

I need to point out that some see the final pope as a possible candidate for the Antichrist, and others see the final pope as a candidate for the false prophet. Only time will reveal, which (if either) of these predictions are true.

The Zohar is a medieval Aramaic collection of books written over 700 years ago and are a part of the Jewish Kabbalah, which contain commentary on the Pentateuch (the five books of Moses, also known as the Torah). Authors Horn and Putnam note in Petrus Romanus: In addition to interpreting Scripture, the “Vaera” section (volume 3, section 34) includes “The signs heralding Mashiach,” or “The coming of the Messiah.” The fascinating date for “his” appearance is set in the Zohar in late 2012! Given the rejection of Jesus by orthodox Jews as Messiah, Christians understand this “coming” would herald the unveiling of Antichrist in 2012. (p. 482)

Much has been said about various astronomical alignments, as well as speculation about a possible magnetic pole reversal (The north magnetic pole has increased the speed of its traveling to approximately 40 miles per year, and is accelerating). Authors Horn and Putnam also noted in Petrus Romanus :

The exact date of this [Mayan] calendar is December 21, 2012, when during the winter solstice at 11:11, GMT (Greenwich Mean Time), the New Age crowd says the sun will align with the galactic center of the Milky Way galaxy, an event that occurs only every thirteen thousand years. This precession of the equinoxes will conclude a twenty-six-thousand-year cycle, bringing the astrological Age of Pisces to an end and introducing the beginning of Aquarius, when the next cycle begins and the sun rises out of the mouth of the Ouroboros (great serpent of the Milky Way). (pp. 451-452)

As we can see, there is a lot more to the 2012 apocalyptic phenomenon than just the arbitrary ending date of the Mayan long count calendar. This, in itself, is more than enough to encourage those of us who believe that we are, indeed, in the “season” of the end of the Age of Grace and the rapture of the Church. We should not be discouraged because the last of the Jewish feast in 2012 has now passed and nothing has happened. After all, nobody told us that we would be able to guess the “day or the hour.”

Even more encouraging, there are signs out there that may not specifically mention the year 2012, but are nevertheless shouting at us that we are not only in the last days, but that we are, in fact, in the “last” of the “last days.” There has certainly been a huge up-tic in the frequency and intensity of signs in nature, such as earthquakes, volcanoes coming back to life, wildfires, floods, droughts, mass animal die-offs, strange sounds all over the planet we cannot explain, plagues, epidemics of all manner of diseases, record high temperatures, record low temperatures, record size hailstones, storms of such violence that we cannot remember the likes of, landslides, hurricanes, and typhoons. We have seen an incredible number of signs in the heavens. There have been a huge number of solar storms as well as solar and lunar eclipses, and blood moons, many of which have frequently occurred on prophetically significant Jewish feast days. We have seen the movements of the planets through the constellations that many feel portend apocalyptic significance. We have also seen the apocalyptic trifecta Japan experienced with Fukushima’s earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear meltdown of three of their atomic reactors.

Israel was back in the land a generation ago. The worldwide economy is teetering on the brink of collapse in the greatest Ponzi scheme of all time. Political unrest can be found in every corner of our world as the people cry out for a leader to take them out of our economic morass. Morality has run rampant, with many calling good evil while calling evil good, and those who openly practice perversion demand to be recognized as a privileged class. There is a worldwide push to authorize every possible immoral lifestyle. Children are openly and legally slaughtered in their mother’s womb literally by the millions. Other evil acts that are so heinous as to be unmentionable (as well as unthinkable) are now commonplace. Many Christians and church doctrines have departed from the faith. There has been a huge increase in blasphemy. Idolatry in all its forms has become acceptable. False christs and false prophets are everywhere, actively deceiving the very elect. Christians and Jews are hated for their faith and are being hunted down and slaughtered in many places throughout the world. Humanity has become increasingly materialistic and lovers of pleasure, bringing worldwide despair instead of happiness or contentment. Tiny, little, insignificant Jerusalem has become the point of contention that the entire planet is ready to go to war over. Israel became a nation in a single day and is once again speaking Hebrew (just as prophesied). RFID chips now make the prophesied mark of the beast a technological reality. The armies of the Middle East and aligned exactly as predicted by Asaph In Psalm 38 over 3,000 years ago, and by Ezekiel over 2500 years ago, as recorded in Ezekiel 83. Food is becoming increasingly scarce as the food supply is being attacked on every front. Fresh drinking water is also becoming increasingly scarce.

The Book of Acts (chapter 2) and the Book of Joel (also chapter 2) tells us that in the last days young men will see visions and old men will dream dreams. There certainly seems to have been a significant increase in dreams and visions in recent years. Of course, not all prophetic visions and dreams are from God, but scripture tells us that many are legitimate. One thing that I have noticed as of late is the building crescendo of urgency that time has run out, the door is just now slamming shut, and that both the rapture and the “sudden destruction” mentioned in the Bible is imminently imminent.

Based on all of this, I believe the question we should be asking is not if the rapture and sudden destruction will happen before the end of 2012. I believe the question should be how the rapture and sudden destruction could possibly delay until the end of 2012. Either way, something big is about to happen, and it is going to happen really soon. It’s not just the Mayans. The earth and everything in it is screaming at humanity to get ready. That something is the rapture of the Church and the sudden destruction that will kick off a period of incredible tribulation such as mankind had never seen before. This deafening “screaming” has become so loud, and has been going on for so long, that we have become numb from it. It is coming at us from every conceivable direction. How much longer can it, or will it, continue? Are you ready???

The Arrow – An Endtime Dream

Early morning, Monday, December 26, 2011:
by Sharon Moles

I haven’t had an endtime-type dream in years. Last night, I had one. In it, I was telling people about the extreme shortness of the hour, and shared scripture after scripture. The people didn’t listen to me. It was like my voice flew right over their heads and away–with no results. Some of the people even laughed at me. I recall that I told them about the coming wars in the Middle East–AND the sequence in which I expect them to unfold (Psalm 83 and the burden of Damascus). I’d just started telling about the Gog/Magog Invasion…AND THEN my vision ZOOMED BACK until I could see the United States laid out like a map in front of me. Something flew in from the northeast. I thought it looked like a rocket/missile. It resembled a huge arrow, and it hit the United States right in the middle…it had to be near the Missouri/Kansas area (as far as I could discern). And it created a disaster (it also could have been in the New Madrid area). I felt myself starting to wake-up, and I TRIED NOT TO wake up. Even as I was coming awake, I kept teaching Bible Prophecy, and kept trying to warn the people of upcoming disasters (as prophesied in Revelation). I wanted so desperately to keep speaking and teaching…but my eyes opened and that effectively ended my dream. After I awakened, I WONDERED if the arrow I saw was NOT really a missile with a bomb, but instead a meteor (but it didn’t glow like a meteor…it just looked like an arrow shaft which plowed into the earth). Maybe it wasn’t a missile either, but only a WARNING of SOMETHING occurring right in the middle of the United States. (I’m still thinking about this dream, and seeking the Lord for any possible meaning to it.)

Added Thursday morning, December 29, 2011:

I’ve been pondering this dream since the 26th. There are THREE (possible) meanings for that ARROW…

(1.) At the time of one of the prophesied end time wars, the enemies of Israel could also strike at the United States. Such a possible attack is mentioned in the Gog/Magog Invasion. Ezekiel 39:6–where God declares, “And I will send a fire on Magog (Russia), and among them that DWELL CARELESSLY IN THE ISLES: and they shall know that I am the Lord.” Those who dwell carelessly in the isles REFERS to a people who dwell across WATER from Israel. Some commentators (myself included) feel this is a reference to the United States. The FIRE (represented by the ARROW in my dream–A MISSILE???) can picture an attack upon the U.S. at the same time as the Invasion is directed toward Israel.

(2.) The ARROW in my dream, which POINTED to the heartland of America, could also represent an expected catastrophe in this region (of natural causes–like an earthquake). We are all aware of the New Madrid fault zone, which could rupture in one of the BIRTH PANGS of earthquakes, which Jesus said will occur in the time near His Second Coming.

(3.) The ARROW in my dream, POINTED AT the very HEART of America, COULD REPRESENT God’s judgment and abandonment of a nation which has ABANDONED HIM. Over the past decades, a falling away–which really BEGAN in EARNEST in the rebellion against authority in the 1960’s–has come to its FULL.

Need I mention all the sins against God which runs like a sewer throughout this once “godly” and “Christian-based” nation? Instead of missionaries sent to other countries with God’s Word and the Gospel of Jesus, the United States now exports degradation…in its ungodly movies and hedonistic lifestyle.

Need I mention abortion, homosexuality, and the characteristics of the last generation BEFORE Christ comes, as recorded in 2 Timothy 3:1-5?

I WILL INDEED LIST THEM–these people are lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection (no natural love towards children or family), false accusers, incontinent (without self-control), fierce, despisers of those that are good (the ridiculing and hatred of true followers of Jesus), traitors, heady (lifted up, arrogant, thinking better of themselves than they are), highminded (thinking themselves smarter than others), lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God; having A FORM of godliness (religion) but DENYING the POWER thereof.

God has a word for a people like this: it’s recorded in various places throughout the Bible, but I will quote Isaiah 1:4-7. (This rebuke from God was spoken to Israel, which was greatly backslidden and wicked–who had ABANDONED the God Who called them.) However, this word can ALSO APPLY to a-once-strong Christian nation who has SO SEVERELY FALLEN AWAY from God’s precepts and values. This word can apply to the United States as we see it today.

“Ah, sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: THEY HAVE FORSAKEN THE LORD, THEY HAVE PROVOKED THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL TO ANGER, THEY ARE GONE AWAY BACKWARDS (backslidden).

“Why should you be stricken any more? YOU WILL REVOLT MORE AND MORE (this means that if God strikes with warning chastisements, it will be fruitless–this nation will only revolt more and more; AND THAT APPEARS TO BE HAPPENING RIGHT NOW): the whole head is sick (even the HEAD of the LAND, the GOVERNMENT is SICK), and the WHOLE HEART FAINT (that’s WHY the arrow STRUCK at the nation’s heart).

“From the sole of the foot even unto the head there is no soundness in it (in this nation, from the smallest people right up to the top, has no soundness–no consideration of God); but WOUNDS (how this country suffers!), and bruises, and PUTRIFYING SORES: they have NOT been closed, NEITHER bound up, NEITHER mollified with ointment (because the nation as a whole has TURNED AWAY FROM GOD, THE ONE WHO CAN BIND THEM UP).

“Your country is DESOLATE, your cities are BURNED WITH FIRE (coming judgments): YOUR LAND, STRANGERS DEVOUR IT IN YOUR PRESENCE (even as citizens dwell here, strangers FOREIGNERS are taking over the land–China already owns much of the country–and Islam is taking over the LAW of the land), and it (the country) is desolate, and OVERTHROWN by strangers.”

The ARROW in the dream can refer to a FINAL OVERTHROW, when this AMERICAN CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC falls under the RULE OF THE ANTICHRIST (his one world government), and it could ALSO refer to a fiery destruction when the enemies of Israel strike at the heart of this land in the upcoming end time wars.

I knew when I awakened from this dream that the message was serious, a warning from God–it’s a warning of what is SO SOON to hit this country. The message is HARD-HITTING, but as NECESSARY to us in this hour as it was to Israel BEFORE their captivity to Babylon.

Israel went to Babylon, because the nation, as a WHOLE, did NOT repent of their evil. (However, there were SOME Godly ones in their midst–like Daniel.)

The United States, as a nation, FACES being turned over to Babylon (the wicked end time POWER–both religious and governmental) which will OPPRESS the world under the reign of the Antichrist. Will our country REPENT?

I DON’T believe it will… We are already TOO FAR into the God-ordained FULFILLMENTS OF END TIME PROPHECY! The great bulk of the population of the United States will be hauled into captivity to the Babylonian One-World SYSTEM (which is prophesied).

However, there are those in the United States, who LIKE DANIEL, have NOT turned away from God. We are the TRUE WORSHIPERS of God, the TRUE CHURCH of Jesus Christ–few in number now, but still here, still present, in the midst of a perverse and wicked generation.

Now, recall how God had His hand on Daniel in a POWERFUL and MIGHTY way. Daniel had the gift of interpreting dreams, for one thing. Even in the midst of a pagan land, Daniel honored the God of Israel. God rewarded him!

In Daniel chapter 3, there came a time when THREE FRIENDS of Daniel were part of the crowd–which was being FORCED by Nebuchadnezzar–to fall down and worship the image (which contained the numbers–666). Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah (their Hebrew names) were warned by the wicked king that IF they did NOT BOW to the image, that they would be thrown into a FURNACE that was heated SEVEN TIMES HOTTER than usual. They did NOT bow. And sure enough, they were cast into THAT FIRE (which was SO HOT that it killed the ones who threw them into the flames). Lo and behold, the fire did NOT consume them. And even better, there was ONE in the MIDST of the fire WITH THEM Who looked like the Son of God!

These THREE did NOT bow! They were SAVED, even in THE MIDST of the FIERY FURNACE!

But, WHERE was Daniel?

Since Nebuchadnezzar had elevated Daniel to the THIRD highest position in the Babylonian government, and since he was NOT PRESENT at the FIERY FURNACE, we can easily ASSUME that Daniel was OUT OF THE AREA–probably on some duty to the state.

Certainly, if Daniel HAD BEEN PRESENT at the scene of the FIERY FURNACE, he would NOT have bowed, and he would have been cast into THAT FURNACE, too. BUT HE WASN’T. WHY???

What is the picture here? What is this SAYING to a Church, who LIKE DANIEL, honors God in the midst of a crooked and perverse country?

The THREE friends of Daniel IN THE MIDST OF THE FURNACE are a picture of ISRAEL, who WILL FACE the wicked atrocities of the Antichrist (Nebuchadnezzar is a picture of the Antichrist). The IMAGE (which the king demanded be bowed to) is a picture of the IMAGE OF THE BEAST with the number 666 as recorded in Revelation 13. The FIERY FURNACE is a picture of the coming Tribulation, and it is SEVEN TIMES HOTTER than usual! The Tribulation (as prophesied by Daniel in 9:27), is SEVEN YEARS long. ONE WEEK of years is the Hebrew “shabua”–a period of SEVEN YEARS. A SEVEN YEAR SABBATICAL SPAN!!! Israel will face the Antichrist in the SEVEN YEAR TRIBULATION, but they will NOT be alone in it–with them is the ONE Who has the appearance of the Son of God. At the end of the Tribulation, Israel will recognize Jesus as their King and Messiah, the one Whom they had pierced. Zechariah 12:10-14.

The THREE friends of Daniel IN THE MIDST OF THE FURNACE is a DIRECT PICTURE of Zechariah 13:8-9. “And it shall come to pass, that in all the land (Israel), saith the Lord, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but THE THIRD (like three friends) shall be left therein (and survive the Tribulation). And I will BRING THE THIRD PART THROUGH THE FIRE, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: They shall CALL ON MY NAME, and I WILL HEAR THEM: I will SAY, ‘IT IS MY PEOPLE’: and they shall SAY, ‘THE LORD IS MY GOD.'”

But what about Daniel? What is he a picture of?

He is a picture of a people WHO ARE NOT AT THE SCENE of the FIERY FURNACE, and a picture of a people WHO ARE NOT CAST INTO THAT FIRE!

Now, WHO can that be?

Now, let’s turn our attention ALL THE WAY BACK to the people I described earlier, CITIZENS of the United States who HAVE NOT ABANDONED their faith in God. These are the TRUE CHRISTIANS (like Daniel) who are in THE MIDDLE of a country, which as a whole, has DESERTED GOD. When the TIME for God’s SEVERE ARROW of judgment is to fall upon the land, these people, having been Raptured, will NOT be in the midst of that judgment! Just like GOD-FEARING Daniel was NOT cast into the FIERY FURNACE.

So, yes–there is a terrible judgment coming. These United States will have THE ARROW of God’s judgment directed RIGHT AT ITS HEART, and the country (as it is now) will no longer exist. It will either completely fall, OR it will be part of the One-World Antichrist government. It’s populace will SUFFER there greatly.

The good news for the TRUE CHURCH is that we will NOT see the terrible events of the Tribulation. Like Daniel, we will be AWAY FROM THE AREA–and NOT FACE the fiery furnace at all!

However, the warning of THE ARROW remains! While there is yet some BORROWED time: REPENT. REPENT. REPENT.

Turn to God now through the GIFT (Grace) He has given in Jesus Christ! Turn away from the ungodly sins and debauchery of a wicked nation! Repent of YOUR SINS which keep you separated from a HOLY GOD. Remember this, “He that BELIEVES NOT in the Lord Jesus Christ is CONDEMNED ALREADY”–having been BORN with a SIN NATURE that keeps you from the presence of God (See John 3:18).

In His LOVE for you, God has done ALL HE CAN to provide A WAY through which you may COME TO HIM. “For God so LOVED the world, that HE GAVE (which is His Grace) His only begotten Son (Jesus Christ), that WHOSOEVER (may you be one of the “whosoevers” that) BELIEVE in Him (so that you) SHOULD NOT PERISH, but have EVERLASTING LIFE.” John 3:16.

And remember, too, “Neither is there salvation in ANY OTHER (nothing else can save you): for there is NONE OTHER NAME UNDER HEAVEN given among men, whereby you MUST be saved.” Acts 4:12. Jesus said in John 14:6, “I am the way, the truth and the life: NO MAN comes to the Father, BUT BY ME.”

Jesus shed His precious blood (which was WITHOUT ANY SIN), and in that act, HE PAID THE PENALTY which God had placed upon OUR sin. THAT PENALTY WAS ETERNAL DEATH AND SEPARATION FROM GOD FOREVER. ALL who SIN will die–and GO to a prison that was created for the devil and his fallen angels (called hell). JESUS DIED IN OUR PLACE. His pure holy blood PAID THE PRICE that God had exacted UPON SIN. When Jesus died, He said “IT IS FINISHED.” In the Greek, the word means “PAID IN FULL.” When we BELIEVE (have confidence and trust) that the BLOOD OF JESUS saves us, we are MADE RIGHT WITH GOD.

“For He (God) has MADE HIM (Jesus) TO BE SIN FOR US, (Jesus) Who knew no sin; that we might BE MADE THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD in Him.” 2 Corinthians 5:21. JESUS DIED IN OUR STEAD, AND WHEN WE BELIEVE IN JESUS’ WORK AT THE CROSS FOR US, WE BECOME RIGHTEOUS IN THE EYES OF GOD! We are SET FREE from the bondage of our sin.

“But God commended His LOVE toward us, in that, while we were YET SINNERS, Christ died FOR US.” Romans 5:17.

The time is SO SHORT now. That ARROW which I saw in my dream could FALL at ANY TIME. We are IN THE FINAL STAGES, just PRIOR to when Jesus will Rapture His Church.

Therefore, DO NOT DELAY in making that VITAL DECISION for Christ.

Repent of sins. Be convinced that your sin will send you to hell IF you DO NOT place your CONFIDENCE in what Jesus did FOR YOU when He died on the cross. Tell Jesus that you ACCEPT the GIFT God has given you IN JESUS. Say to Jesus that you WANT TO HAVE YOUR SINS FORGIVEN AND CLEANSED through the blood that He SHED FOR YOU. Tell Jesus that you want Him to COME LIVE INSIDE YOU by the Holy Spirit. “Come into my heart, dear Jesus. Give me the NEW and ETERNAL LIFE that is mine IN YOU. I want to be BORN AGAIN.”

Jesus will come into your heart–the very minute you turn to Him and ask. “For whosoever shall CALL UPON THE NAME of the Lord SHALL BE SAVED.” Romans 10:13.

Come to Jesus NOW–BEFORE that ARROW falls and judgments arrive. All who are BORN AGAIN will be taken to heaven–when Jesus descends into the air as He Raptures the Church. Be PART of that number who (like Daniel) will NOT BE PRESENT on earth when the Antichrist has his scene.

“For God has NOT APPOINTED US to wrath, but to obtain SALVATION (deliverance) by our Lord Jesus Christ.” 1 Thessalonians 5:9.
