This Time of Great Tribulation is a Trial and Test of Our Faith!!!
January 9, 2022
Paul prophesied from Christ that 3 things remain constant in the life of a believer -- which are FAITH along with hope and love. And that LOVE of course was the greatest of these 3 constants as we read in 1st Corinthians Chapter 13. And it was no doubt Paul who Christ had write in Hebrews the greatest Chapter of Faith in the Bible this very important TRUTH: “But without FAITH it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” (Hebrews 11:6) And of course it goes without saying that we must BELIEVE Christ’s True Gospel and Eschatology of these End-Times and NOT a False Gospel and Eschatology which can save NO ONE!!!
FORTUNATELY -- Christ also taught that HE is the author and finisher of our faith and He had Paul prophesy what applies to this Apocalypse Generation more than ever
when we read:
“Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the Throne of God.” (Hebrews 12:1-2)
And from that Throne in Heaven – Christ is clearly interceding for us “Elect” today to make it through this time of Great Tribulation. For all of the Prophets of Old and Christ’s Disciples went through their times of tribulation too and Christ got them all through it. That’s WHY Christ had John paint the CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE of the 3 Horsemen of the Apocalypse following Christ which was meant to convey that EVERYONE in this World would have tribulation but that those of us who were of THE SEED of Christ had Him riding out before us on His Great White Stallion overcoming the COMMON WOES in this Life for us “Elect”!!!
And contrary to what Man’s False Eschatology teaches today – that The Church will be Raptured in a Pre-Trib Rapture BEFORE the Great Tribulation even begins – the Biblical TRUTH is that Christians have been persecuted in every imaginable way and have had tribulation that is unthinkable since the beginning of time. And this was mostly because we “Elect” of Christ have had to co-exist on this Earth with SATAN and those with his ANTICHRIST SPIRIT who have been in League with him!!! And Christ never took any of His “Elect and Chosen Generation” out of the world to avoid this tribulation – ON THE CONTRARY -- Christ prophesied that we “Elect” would have tribulation and near the very END OF THE WORLD that there would be a time of EXTREMELY GREAT TRIBULATION when we read:
“If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated Me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do NOT belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will persecute you also.” (and don’t we see almost the WHOLE WORLD now HATING us who belong to Christ???!!!) (John 15:18-20)
THINK ABOUT IT -- those of us in the True Eternal Universal Church of Christ are the ones in this Great Tribulation that are being persecuted for the cause of Christ. And Christ’s True Eschatology doesn’t teach that we won’t have to go through this Final Spiritual Battle when Christ is in the process of DEFEATING SATAN and those in League with him – HARDLY!!! Christ says “pick up your cross and Follow Me”!!! And I can almost hear Christ saying to us “Elect” today -- “If they have persecuted Me – then expect Satan and his “Elites” to persecute you in this time of GREAT TRIBULATION also”!!! And isn’t that just what we are seeing happen today???!!! And FRANKLY – that’s WHY we “Elect” are IN this Final Spiritual Battle to fight SATAN right alongside of Christ – NOT raptured out of it!!!
The phrase “Great Tribulation” is used by Christ to denote that because the love of Him will grow cold in the unsaved World and there will be a “great falling away” from the faith even in Christendom before His 2nd Coming -- that this time of tribulation will be more widespread or GREATER than it has ever been in history. In other words -- there will be much more iniquity abounding and more spiritual persecution of anyone holding faithfully to the truth of Scripture because SATAN HAS BEEN LOOSED. And that is WHY we Christians are experiencing greater tribulation in the world than ever before. But NOWHERE does “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology teach that we “Elect” in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST won’t go through the Great Tribulation -- REALLY!!!
God’s people have since the beginning of time been persecuted by Satan and HIS SEED!!! And that’s WHY the Bible is the written record of Christians being burned at the stake – and stretched out on the rack -- or stoned to death and sawn asunder -- or fed to the lions -- or crucified – tortured -- and severely beaten as the Old Testament Prophets and Disciples of Christ all pretty much had to endure. But TODAY just like in the Old Testament days Christ isn’t going to RAPTURE us because he doesn’t want us “Elect” to suffer in this world – HARDLY!!! He is sovereign and could for sure RAPTURE us now -- but He needs us “Elect” to FIGHT one more Spiritual Battle before THE RAPTURE on the LAST DAY!!! And His True Eschatology REVEALS that His Grace is sufficient for us -- which is WHY He had Paul prophesy about his own time of great tribulation
when Paul wrote that Christ said to him also:
“My Grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” (and that prompted Paul to reply humbly!!!) Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” (CLEARLY no one went through as many hardships and tribulations than Paul did for the CAUSE OF CHRIST!!!) (2nd Cor. 12:9-10)
But through all of the tribulations and trials that Paul personally experienced – he wrote in Romans that it is our FAITH which will help us endure this time of Great Tribulation when we read: “Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access by faith into this GRACE in which we stand, and rejoice in (the) hope of the Glory of God. And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope. Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.” (and that holds true today in this time now of GREAT TRIBULATION!!!)
The Idea of a Pre-Trib Rapture is the Product of Man’s Unsound Eschatology –
NOT a Product of Christ’s True Gospel!!!
“The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology EXPLICTLY teaches that EVERYONE on Earth will go through the Great Tribulation!!! And to believe that The Church will be Raptured in a Pre-Trib Rapture BEFORE the Great Tribulation even begins -- is to believe that Christ somehow contradicts Himself – I DON’T THINK SO!!! For Christ EXPLICITLY prophesied in Matthew 24 that EVERYONE on Earth would be going through this time of Great Tribulation just as He REVEALED to Daniel and Ezekiel and John in their visions that EVERYONE on Earth would be in today’s Final Spiritual Battle called by the CRYPTIC NAMES of “The Gog and Magog Battle” and “Armageddon” which takes place between the 2 Spiritual Kingdoms of Man. I mean – think about it – who are the “Elites” in League with Satan in his Kingdom of Babylon fighting against if not us “Elect” in Christ’s Kingdom of Heaven???!!!
Tribulation is normative for Christians all throughout Scripture because SATAN has been AT WAR with Christ since before the creation of this Human Race. And that SPIRITUAL WARFARE spilled over into Man’s Dimension in the Garden of Eden. But make no mistake “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology REVEALS that this Spiritual Warfare between these 2 Spiritual Kingdoms is about to reach its CLIMAX today with this prophesied Final Spiritual Battle in which Christ intends to thoroughly DEFEAT SATAN and his SEED forever!!!
And Christ’s True Eschatology teaches that there won’t be a RAPTURE before this Final Spiritual Battle is over – for it is indeed through these tribulations and persecutions that we “Elect” learn humility and grow closer to the Lord. And clearly -- our weakness in this time now of GREAT TRIBULATION makes us aware of our lack of ability to overcome in and of our own power and WHY Christ is now demonstrating HIS POWER just like He did in the Deliverance in Moses’ Day when we read:
“Then the Lord said to Moses, “Go to Pharaoh, for I have hardened his heart and the hearts of his officials so that I may perform these SIGNS of Mine among them that you may tell your children and grandchildren how I dealt harshly with the Egyptians and how I performed My SIGNS among them, and THAT YOU MAY KNOW THAT I AM THE LORD.” (which was the REASON for THE SIGNS then and is still the reason for the last 7 Plagues today – which are SIGNS that Christ is using so that everyone on Earth will see that HE IS GOD and is going to DEFEAT SATAN once and FOREVER in this Final Spiritual Battle that we are in NOW!!!) (Exodus 10:1-2)
And while even God’s people were affected by the 1st 3 Plagues in Moses’ Day -- when it was time for Moses to pour out the 4th Plague – Christ made it EXPLICITLY CLEAR that from that point on that His people in Goshen would NOT be harmed by the remaining Plagues. And that’s WHY we read Christ telling Moses to say to Pharaoh BEFORE the pouring out of the 4th Plague: “‘But on that day I will deal differently with the land of Goshen, where My people live; no swarms of flies will be there, so that you will know that I, the Lord, am in this land. I will make a distinction between My people and your people.’” (Exodus 8:22-23)
AND SO IT GOES TODAY!!! For in this Final Time of Judgment in pouring out these LAST 3 WOES Christ is making a distinction between His 1/3 Remnant that He has chosen to save out of this World -- and the 2/3 Remnant that He has chosen NOT TO SAVE as we read in Zechariah 13:8-9. And He is doing that so that the whole World will know “THAT HE IS IN THE LAND” just like in the Days of Moses at that time of Deliverance when Christ had Moses say to the Israelites:
“Don’t be afraid. Stand firm and you will see THE DELIVERANCE the Lord will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again. The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.” (Exodus 14:13-14) And we are told that the reason WHY Christ was leading His people to the Red Sea was all part of His DIVINE PLAN when we read: “ And I will harden Pharaoh’s heart, and he will pursue them. But I will gain glory for Myself through Pharaoh and all his army, and the Egyptians will know that I am the Lord.” (Exodus 14:4)
For this time of GREAT TRIBULATION before the FINAL DELIVERANCE of us “Elect” of Christ is to highlight our inadequacies and causes us to turn our hearts to God. For it is from CHRIST who is our help in times of tribulation and especially this time of GREAT TRIBULATION with Satan now LOOSED to rule the WHOLE WORLD that we will be DELIVERED!!! CLEARLY – it is in trial and persecution that we “Elect” come to understand more fully how truly helpless we are without Christ. In other words -- tribulation humbles us and is a blessing in disguise -- compelling our dependence on Christ ALONE and helping us to see that we don’t need to be taken out of the world -- for His Grace is more than adequate and is TRULY SUFFICIENT!!! That’s WHY we read that
Christ is our “Blessed Hope”!!!
And it’s almost laughable if it wasn’t so tragic that Joe Biden just said that we have every reason to hope going into 2020 – REALLY???!!! He as the Leader of the not so FREE World anymore can’t even get the YEAR STRAIGHT – THINK ABOUT IT!!! Which only proves that Christ is the “Blessed Hope” – NOT MAN!!!
If there was Ever a Time when we Should be Listening to Christ
It is TODAY in this Great Tribulation When He is Pouring Out The Last 3 WOES!!!
HONESTLY -- even though we live at a time when Christ FORETOLD ahead of time that He would LOOSE Satan on this World and His Apostate Congregation as JUDGMENT which would cause a time of GREAT TRIBULATION for those of us “Elect” like Daniel who remain faithful – we “Elect” should still consider this the MOST BLESSED Generation of all because we are going to see the Glorious Return of Christ to RAPTURE US “ELECT”!!! For according to “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology we are TODAY living in the 2nd Half of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy. And we have Daniel and Ezekiel and John’s visions to confirm THE TRUTH that SATAN is “THE ANTICHRIST” who will cause the “desolation” of many by his DECEIVING THE NATIONS!!
And if there was ever a time when we should be listening to Christ and His True Eschatology it is TODAY when we are seeing a “great falling away” from the faith and the TRUE GOSPEL of Christ. And that’s WHY John wrote that what Christ was mostly concerned with was the condition of our heart and SPIRITUAL WELL BEING after Christ gave Him the words to him to write to each of the 7 Churches. And it’s also WHY John wrote that when the Love of most had grown cold and when Christ was no longer the 1st Love of even professed Christians – in other words when so many Christians had become “lukewarm” and had “fallen away” from the faith -- that He would come to JUDGE the World. And make no mistake – John saw in his 7 visions that the JUDGMENT would BEGIN with Christ own Congregation before judging the unsaved World.
CLEARLY -- the True Eternal Universal Church that is the SPIRIUTUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” was supposed to be Christ’s “City on the Hill” that He intended to be a reflection of HIS LIGHT – that’s WHY He says we should LISTEN to what the Spirit is saying today to the Churches when John wrote: “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne. “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” (Revelation 3:20-22)
These words – “he who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the Churches” is written to all 7 Churches – THINK ABOUT IT!!! And to those of us who are LISTENING to Christ TODAY – He wanted especially those of us “Elect” living at His 2nd Coming to understand that it is SATAN who is the DECEIVER and the Supreme Enemy of our soul. And that is WHY He REVEALED to John that the END-TIME External Global Church would be “the Harlot who was riding THE BEAST” who is SATAN. And that it was SATAN who was DECEIVING so many who claimed the Name of Christ to believe in THE LIES of False Gospels along with the False Eschatology of Man that would lead to their “DESOLATION” at His 2ndComing. And lest we forget -- Christ prophesied that we “Elect” would see “The Abomination of Desolation” of Satan LOOSED to rule the WHOLE WORLD before His 2nd Coming to signal that we are living in “the END of Days”!!!
And it is those in League with Satan in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Babylon” that are attacking those of us in the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” that is causing this time of GREAT TRIBULATION!!! And CLEARLY Christ had John prophesy that the outcome of this Final Spiritual Battle will leave those who are AT WAR WITH CHRIST AND HIS WORD in “DESOLATION” when John saw the WHOLE ARMY of Satan destroyed by Christ raining down FIRE from Heaven.
And this FIRE from Heaven is obviously the 7th Plague and which is also the 3rd WOE that is poured out on the LAST DAY of this Human Race when we read that when the Gospel Era is finished and Christ has saved EVERYONE in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST – that THEN Satan is LOOSED to fight one last SPIRITUAL Battle called by the CRYPTIC NAME of “the Gog and Magog Battle” and “Armageddon” which won’t end too well for Satan and his Army of Magog when we read:
“Now when the thousand years have expired, Satan will be released from his prison (which is HELL where he has been bound since the Cross!!!) and will go out to DECEIVE THE NATIONS which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, (meaning this DECEPTION is Global which is just what we see happening with the Covid Pandemic!!!) to gather them together to battle, whose number is as the sand of the sea.” (for just as Christ REVEALED to Zechariah a REMNANT of 2/3 of this World’s population were never saved and Satan inherited these SONS OF PERDITION
into his Kingdom!!!)
“They went up on the breadth of the Earth and surrounded the Camp of the Saints (which are the 1/3 REMNANT that Christ HAS SAVED living on Earth TODAY!!!) and the Beloved City. (which refers to the SPIRITUAL CITY of “Heavenly Jerusalem” where we exist in our saved soul existence on Earth TODAY!!!) And FIRE came down from God out of Heaven and devoured them. (Satan’s army of “Magog”!!!) The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the Lake of Fire and Brimstone where (it was prophesied that) THE BEAST (who is SATAN!!!) and the False Prophet (s) are (prophesied to be thrown into also which is HELL!!!) And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.” (EMPHAIS OF COURSE MINE!!!) (Revelation 20:7-10)
HONESTLY – I just don’t see how anyone could read this prophecy and NOT think that Christ’s DIVINE PLAN is to thoroughly DEFEAT SATAN and his Army in this Final Spiritual Battle and then to pour out the LAST 7th Plague which will END THIS WORLD – or am I missing something????!!!
Those in Satan’s Army Don’t REALLY want THE TRUTH -- They Want to be Justified
in Their FALSE ESCHATOLOGY!!!
While we “Elect” of Christ know that there is NOTHING more sacred to an HONEST MIND than THE TRUTH of Christ’s Word – the Bible tells us that unsaved mankind will think of themselves as GOD wanting to serve themselves as the King of their own Kingdoms rather than serving Christ as King in His – especially AFTER Satan has now been LOOSED to rule the WHOLE WORLD!!! And isn’t that just what we see today when the “Elites” of Satan’s Kingdom want to BE GOD and enforce their “Great Reset” on us “Elect” where they rule AS GOD???!!!
And so we’ve come to the FINAL SPIRITUAL BATTLE when Christ has LOOSED SATAN on the WHOLE WORLD. But He assures us through His Word that if we remain faithful to Him and His TRUTH – then we won’t be deceived by Satan if in the face of opposition we patiently wait upon the Lord by keeping His word faithfully. And one can know just WHO Christ’s True Prophets are because we stand on THE WORD OF CHRIST which is verifiable in Scripture – when all False Prophets have to stand on is based on assumption and subjection and the False Eschatology of Man which is based on their own private interpretation of these End-Times.
Christ CLEARLY tells us to test those coming in His Name to see if they are faithful to His True Gospel or NOT. And make no mistake -- the unfaithful False Prophets all have ONE THING IN COMMON -- they never reconcile or consider ALL of Scripture because they can’t. They constantly claim that Christ’s Word means something even though He didn’t actually say what they say HE SAID!!! When Christ’s Word DOES NOT CONTRADICT ITSELF – HARDLY!!! That’s WHY those coming with the False Eschatology of Man will ignore one verse in favor of their favorite verses that all of their Colleagues along with them have memorized that say the Church will NOT have to go through
the GREAT TRIBULATION.
And not to be disrespectful – but when Dispensationalists teach relentlessly that there will be a Pre-Trib Rapture – don’t we read Christ prophesying in the 24thChapter of Matthew that believers WHO CHRIST CALLS His “Elect” are here on Earth and that He is WARNING us BELIEVERS how to deal with this time???!!! WHY would He prophesy that we “Elect” will be hated by ALL NATIONS -- and WHY did He have John prophesy that we “Elect” are to “COME OUT OF BABYLON” and said that we “Elect” would watch SATAN’S KINGDOM OF BABYLON FALL as we read in Revelation Chapter 18 -- if we have been Raptured – it makes no sense!!! And the way that Dispensationalists rectify their claim of the Church being RAPTURED BEFORE the Great Tribulation -- is by claiming that “the Elect” that Christ is addressing are THE JEWS and NOT those of us in
THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST!!!
That is A LIE just like their claim that Revelation 3:10 is a verse that proves that The Church will NOT have to go through the Great Tribulation!!! When the word “tribulation” is NOWHERE to be found in this verse but is conventionally “read into” it to prove the False Eschatology of Man that there will be a Pre-Trib Rapture BEFORE the Great Tribulation. NOT according to “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology!!! For Christ EXPLICITLY prophesies that EVERYONE is in the time of Great Tribulation – especially His “Elect” which is THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST when He had John prophesy that He will “keep us” from being DECEIVED in this time when SATAN IS DECEIVING THE NATIONS – NOT that He will “keep us” by taking us off of the Planet when we read:
“Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the WHOLE WORLD, to test those who dwell on the Earth.” (and make no mistake – Christ did NOT mean to imply that this verse meant that He would RAPTURE His Church BEFORE the Great Tribulation which is the product of wishful thinking and unsound Eschatology -- NOT the TRUTH of Christ’s True Gospel and Eschatology!!!) (Rev. 3:10)
CLEARLY – what “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology prophesies in this verse -- is that we are being “kept” from being DECEIVED – NOT taken off of the Planet in a Pre-Trib Rapture BEFORE the Great Tribulation even begins!!! For all throughout Daniel and Ezekiel and John’s visions Christ REVEALS that His “Elect” are here and overcoming to be “a Pillar in the Temple of God” and the reflection of His LIGHT in His “City on the Hill” right until the LAST DAY when Christ REVEALS that
THE RAPTURE will take place.
And just as the Disciples had to go through a time of GREAT TRIBULATION at the 1st Coming of Christ when they all were there to witness the PASSION of Christ and were also in fear that they would be arrested just as the Temple Guards had arrested Christ -- Peter illustrates that we at the END OF DAYS who are of the SEED of Christ will be “tried” in the fire to see if we will remain faithful in the face of so much false teaching and apostasy. And the APOSTASY couldn’t be greater than it is TODAY when Christ taught that
SPIRITUAL DECLENSION would be the #1 SIGN of His 2nd Coming!!!
That’s WHY Christ had Peter prophesy this important TRUTH that especially applies to this Apocalypse Generation of TODAY when the 70th Week Prophecy is being REJECTED that Christ was “the Messiah the Prince” WHO CAME just as it was REJECTED at His 1st Coming. And if you don’t believe that is TRUE – think about this -- Man’s False Eschatology today teaches that Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy is a Future Prophecy meant only for THE JEWS after the Pre-Trib Rapture of THE CHURCH which is A LIE!!! And just as the Disciples of Christ had to go through much reviling and persecution and threats of DEATH from the Esteemed Religious Leaders for taking a stand that Christ was INDEED “the Messiah the Prince” of Daniel’s 70thWeek Prophecy who had COME –
AND SO IT GOES TODAY!!!
For Christ’s 2nd Coming is prophesied to happen at the END of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy which is taking place NOW. And we “Elect” who believe this TRUTH are being persecuted and tested just as the Disciples were when we read what Peter wrote: “In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials, that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory AT THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST”!!!
(1st Peter 1:6-7)
And that revelation of Jesus Christ is on the LAST DAY which is confirmed by what Christ had Paul ALSO prophesy when we read that this Final Event in Human History will NOT be secret or SILENT – HARDLY!!! For Christ had Paul prophesy that He will appear in FLAMING FIRE and GLORY when there will be both THE DELIVERANCE of us “Elect” in the RAPTURE for standing up for Christ’s True Gospel -- and the Judgment of those who claim to be of Christ but have REJECTED Christ’s True Gospel.
This Glorious “Day of the Lord” is CLEARLY the LAST DAY of this Human Race when Christ had Paul prophesy that He will be “REVEALED from Heaven with His mighty Angels, in FLAMING FIRE taking vengeance on those who do not know God, and on those who do not obey the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. These shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord and from the Glory of His power, when He comes, in that Day, to be Glorified in His saints and to be admired among all those who believe, because our testimony among you was believed.” (which proves that DELIVERANCE at the Rapture of us “Elect” and the Judgment of Satan and his “Elites” take place on the same LAST DAY!!!) (2ndThessalonians 1:4-10)
But until that day occurs – Christ REVEALED to Zechariah that He would be bringing us “Elect” through many trials and tribulations INCLUDING this time of GREAT TRIBULATION before casting Satan and his SEED out of His Kingdom forever
when we read:
And it shall come to pass in all the land,”
Says the Lord,
“That two-thirds in it shall be cut off and die,
But one-third shall be left in it:
I will bring the one-third through the fire,
Will refine them as silver is refined,
And test them as gold is tested.
They will call on My name,
And I will answer them.
I will say, ‘This is My people’;
And each one will say, ‘The Lord is my God.’ ”
And CLEARLY – the only ones who will overcome this time of GREAT TRIBULATION are those of us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST who John saw Christ had ALREADY invisibly marked with “THE MARK OF SALVATION” which is the “seal” of Christ BEFORE Satan is LOOSED to fight this final Spiritual Battle. And because we belong to Christ and are IN HIM – Christ promises that we “Elect” will overcome!!! While Man’s False Eschatology teaches that the Church isn't even here during this temptation or trial in order to be tried and tested which is this time of GREAT TRIBULATION that John wrote will come upon the WHOLE WORLD to test those who live in this 21st Century as we read in Revelation 3:10!!!
Let God Be True But Every Man A Liar!!!
So what is a Christian to believe – Man’s ever-so-popular Eschatology that teaches RELENTLESSLY that THE CHURCH won’t have to go through the Great Tribulation because Dispensationalists teach that the word “Elect” used in Matthew Chapter 24 applies only to THE JEWS who are Christ’s true CHOSEN PEOPLE???!!! Or Christ’s True Gospel and Eschatology which teaches that there is only ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST and those of us in that ONE TRUE BODY are referred to as Christ’s “Elect and Chosen” who He EXPLICITLY says will be going through this time of GREAT TRIBULATION
when we read:
“For then there will be Great Tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the Elect’s sake those days will be shortened.” (and Christ says that we “Elect” are here going through this time of GREAT TRIBULATION and that He has shortened these days for the sake of us “Elect” unless I’ve missed something???!!!) (Matthew 24:21-22)
We “Elect” have Christ’s PROMISE in BOTH Matthew 24 and Revelation 3:10 that in trial – testing -- or temptation which are all the same Greek word – that we will be delivered out of the temptation by being IN HIM!!! And while Dispenstionalists insist that THE CHURCH must be taken “out of the world” to overcome -- what Christ was trying to convey was that He will “deliver” us out of this TIME of Great temptation when “the Evil One” who is SATAN is tempting us in THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST to “fall away” from the faith and to accept his DOCTRINES OF DEMONS!!!
HONESTLY – our prayer that Christ will deliver us out of temptation is the Lord’s Prayer that we really should be praying EVERY DAY when we read that SATAN is “the Evil One” who will cause the DESOLATION of MANY even Professed Christians on the LAST DAY who have REFUSED to believe Christ’s True Gospel and Eschatology. For rest assured that this awesome Prayer given to us by Christ didn’t teach us to pray to be taken out of the World in a Pre-Trib Rapture – HARDLY!!! -- but to pray that we will be brought THROUGH this time of Great Tribulation which He taught us to pray in the Lord’s prayer to be delivered from SATAN when Christ said:
“And when you pray, do not be like the Hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the Synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. . . . . . (but pray this prayer instead which Christ gave to us “Elect”!!!) “And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from THE EVIL ONE." (who is NOT ONE PARTICUALR MAN of the Future who will step up on the stage of Human History after the Pre-Trib Rapture of the Church – HARDLY!!! The “evil one” has ALWAYS BEEN SATAN!!!) (Matthew 6:5-15)
In other words – Christ has PROMISED to bring us “Elect” safely out of “the hour of temptation” -- which is our trial of faith TODAY going through this time of GREAT TRIBULATION when Satan is now ruling the WHOLE WORLD. And because we have been “sealed” by Christ our minds will NOT readily be deceived by SATAN’S STRONG DELUSIONS like a bird that is snared in a trap!!!
And it’s also WHY Christ’s True Eschatology DEBUNKS Man’s False Eschatology that we need to be “taken out of the World” to avoid being killed by the last 7 Plagues which Dispensationalists say will kill over ½ of the World’s population of 7.9 BILLION -- which is A LIE!!! For if that were true -- then WHY would Christ say that His 2nd Coming will be like “a thief in the night” if almost 4 BILLION people have died of the LAST 7 PLAGUES???!!! Or WHY would Christ have had Paul prophesy the TRUTH that there is NO SPECIAL TEMPTATION or trial that will necessitate Christ taking us out of the world to avoid it when we read:
“NO temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will NOT allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.” (and CLEARLY the way of escape is not to escape through a Pre-Trib Rapture of being taken off of the Planet which Christ NEVER PROPHESIED – but by being IN CHRIST AND HIS WORD!!! (1st Cor. 10:13)
Teaching that Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy is the time of Great Tribulation that is only a prophecy for THE JEWS and that THE CHURCH will escape any JUDGMENT of Christ by using the verse in Revelation 3:10 and teaching that almost half of the World’s population will DIE from the last 7 Plagues in the 7 years of Tribulation -- is a scare tactic to get Christians to believe their False Eschatology!!!
For if this time of Great Tribulation was that HORRIFIC – then WHY did Christ teach that people will be going about their daily business as usual and will be “taken by surprise” at His 2nd Coming???!!! THINK ABOUT IT!!!
The TRUTH is That Christ Had Daniel Prophesy That We “Elect” Would be “Blessed”
If We Made it to the 1,335th Day at the END of This Great Tribulation!!!
When we look at the prophecy that Christ had Paul write recorded in 1st Corinthians 10:13 – we see that NOW that this Great Tribulation has come upon the WHOLE WORLD that Christ HAS INDEED provided a way of “Escape” out of it – which is being grounded in His True Eschatology so that we won’t be DECEIVED by the LIES of Satan and the “Elites” in League with him. And that if we remain IN CHRIST and His Word – that THEN we will KNOW THE TRUTH. And that TRUTH is that Christ’s True Eschatology REVEALS that the Timing of the Rapture is AFTER THE GREAT TRIBULATION on the LAST DAY which is the 1,335th Day that Christ REVEALED to Daniel in his last vision that we “Elect” would be “Blessed if we made it to!!!
By contrast -- the Pre-Trib Rapture Enthusiasts claim that Revelation 3:10 clearly teaches that the time of GREAT TRIBULATION will be so HORRIFIC with “THE ANTICHRST” making everyone take his number of 666 or be beheaded or at the very least anyone without his number of 666 will NOT be able to buy in Super Markets – NOT to mention that almost 4 BILLION PEOPLE will die Globally from the Last 7 Plagues -- who wouldn’t want to get out of Dodge???!!!
And because of the Pre-Trib Rapture theory – Satan has been successful in his Campaign of NEUTRALIZING the True Eschatology of Christ which has contributed to a Global Pandemic of Delusion and Confusion to be sure!!! But that’s WHY it is SO IMPORTANT that the awesome Prophet Daniel’s last 4 visions that prophesy of today’s Great Tribulation before the 2nd Coming of Christ be taught and reiterated OFTEN. For CLEARLY – Christ REVEALED to Daniel in his last 4 visions that He would LOOSE SATAN for this “final little season” when He is ALLOWING SATAN to rule this WHOLE WORLD with NO RESTRAINT just as He allowed King Nebuchadnezzar to rule under SATAN mightily over the Nation of Israel and the surrounding Nations in Daniel’s day.
In other words -- Daniel’s prophetic Office coincided with the Jewish exile to Babylon with its Babylonian Captivity of Christ’s Old Testament Congregation to FORESHADOW what Christ THEN REVEALED to John in his 7 visions – that Christ would again Judge His Congregation and in particular the False Prophets in the External Global Harlot Church for their unfaithfulness to Him and His Word just as He had done in Daniel’s Day. Which is WHY we are IN THE GREAT TRIBULATION!!! For it is Christ who has LOOSED Satan as His Worldwide Judgment of the End-Time Harlot Church’s captivity to WORLDLINESS that has caused Today’s Great Apostasy and the “falling away” from the faith just as Christ warned us it would if we didn’t repent of our unfaithfulness to Him and His Word!!!
And that’s WHY NO ONE can understand these last of what is called “the End of Days” of Satan’s rule of this WHOLE WORLD as “THE ANTICHRIST” without studying The Book of Daniel which is divided into 2 sections of 6 Chapters each. The 1st section is mainly concerned with the Historical Events of the past – while the 2nd section predicts the Events that are occurring NOW during the 2nd Half of the 70 Weeks of Daniel. For Daniel’s 70th Week covers the WHOLE New Covenant Period from the Cross to
And rest assured that we are nearing the CONSUMMATION of Daniel’s 70thWeek Prophecy. For CLEARLY -- the 2nd Coming of Christ is THE CONSUMMATION – or the bringing to COMPLETION Christ’s Restored Millennial Kingdom that was inaugurated at the Cross. And because Christ’s resurrection from the Dead is what made the Kingdom of Christ a REALITY – His Coming again soon is what will CONSUMMATE IT!!!
In all – 4 visions were given to Daniel in the 2nd Predictive 6 Chapters recorded in the Book of Daniel. And they are interrelated and build upon each other as follows:
1. The vision of the Four Beasts in Daniel Chapter 7 which provides additional details about the 4 Kingdoms REVEALED in Nebuchadnezzar’s dream outlined in Daniel Chapter 2 which is a vision of SATAN in a huge statue of a Man ruling over the last 4 Kingdoms of this World
2. The vision of the Ram and the Goat in Daniel Chapter 8 which expands on “the little horn” – or the End-Time Antichrist introduced in the preceding vision
3. The Prophecy of the 70 Weeks in Daniel Chapter 9 which provides intriguing Chronological insights into the Lord’s 1st and 2nd Comings with emphasis on the Final “half week” of the End-Time DESOLATION of the Harlot Church which is taking place TODAY through the pouring out of
the last 3 WOES!!!
4. And Finally the vision of the King of the North and the South in Daniel Chapters 10-12 which features detailed prophesies about the Hellenistic or post-Greek Era with particular emphasis on the Seleucid King Antiochus IV Epiphanes who is presented as a “type” of the coming Antichrist who is SATAN who is waging WAR against Christ’s Kingdom in this Final Spiritual Battle of today!!! And then much information is alsogiven about Satan’s End-Time rule which we are in TODAY with SATAN now LOOSED by Christ to not only fight this Final Spiritual Battle but to rule
the WHOLE WORLD!!!
CLEARLY – in reading this outline one can understand that Daniel’s awesome Book was meant to convey from the Lord that SATAN is "THE ANTICHRIST” of the Final 4th Empire pictured in King Nebuchadnezzar’s Dream of the Statue of Satan. In other words -- TODAY’S rule of Satan is depicted in Daniel’s last 4 visions listed above with him ruling the last 4th Empire on Earth NOW. And fortunately -- Daniel’s visons are then confirmed by the 7 visions REVEALED to John which also prophesy this time of GREAT TRIBULATION when Christ 1st REVEALED to Daniel that THE ONE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST would be persecuted by Satan’s Sons of Perdition until the very LAST DAY when Christ would Return to END SATAN’S RULE of this World forever.
And BEFORE that LAST DAY occurs Christ gave Ezekiel the awesome “GOG ORACLE” in which Ezekiel was shown in his infamous “Gog Oracle” recorded in Ezekiel Chapters 38-39 -- that while Satan and those in Satan’s Kingdom of “Babylon the Great” will MAKE WAR with Christ’s Christian Army in His Kingdom of Heaven -- that they will be THOROUGHLY DEFEATED. For what Christ REVEALED to Ezekiel was the DEMISE of Satan that is outlined in Ezekiel Chapter 39 as Christ paints a HIGHLY CRYPTIC SPIRITUAL PICTURE for us of the outline of “The Slaying of Gog” in Ezekiel 39:1-8 – and “The Plundering of Gog” in Ezekiel 39:9-10 – followed by “The Burial of Gog” recorded in Ezekiel 39:11-16 and “The Sacrificing of Gog” recorded in Ezekiel 39:17-20.
And if one studies what Christ REVEALED to Daniel in his last 4 visions in the outline above – they will see that “The Rapture Truth” REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology teaches that Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy could NEVER be FUTURE because it covers the whole Gospel Era when Christ’s came as “the Messiah the Prince” who has been confirming His New Covenant of Grace with the “many” of us in His Book of Life since the Cross. And that 1st Half of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy has now been FULFILLED when then the LAST HALF of Daniel’s 70th Week BEGAN when Satan was LOOSED as “THE ANTICHRIST” and has been leading this Final Rebellion of LAWLESS MEN against Christ and us “Elect.” And Daniel’s visions prophesy that this FINAL ESCHATOLOGICAL WAR between the Kingdom of Christ and the Kingdom of Satan will NOT END until the CONSUMMATION of Christ’s Restored Millennial Kingdom is complete and He RETURNS to END Satan’s Rebellion FOREVER!!!
CLEARLY -- that means that there is NO Pre-Mid-or Post Tribulation according to Christ’s True Eschatology since His True Gospel and Eschatology teaches that HE CAME as “the Messiah the Prince” recorded in Daniel’s vision of the 70th Week Prophecy. AND REST ASSURED THAT HE CAME to save the 1/3 Remnant out of this World’s population as He REVEALED to Zechariah which Christ calls His “Elect” all throughout the Bible!!! And we “Elect” are going to escape “the hour of temptation” all right just as Christ said -- but it will be as Christ defines it – NOT as “the Pre-Tribbers” define it which is NOT THE TRUTH!!! Christ will make sure that we “Elect” of His will endure and that we will be “Blessed” to make it to the 1,335 day of the Great Tribulation just as He told Daniel in his last vision!!!
And that’s WHY there is ABSOLUTELY NO reason to be delivered out of the world in a Pre-Mid-or Post Tribulation because there is NO 7 years of Tribulation based falsely on the Future fulfillment of Daniel’s 70th Week Prophecy according to Christ’s TRUE ESCHAOLOGY!!! For this Prophecy has all been FULFILLED now except the CONSUMMATION on the LAST DAY!!! And the reason WHY we “Elect” are still here and going through this time of GREAT TRIBULATION – is because we “Elect” are needed in Christ’s Army. For we have been “chosen” for a time such as this – to stand up with Christ and fight to EXPOSE Satan and his EVIL AGENDA which now has a NAME – for Satan and his “Elites” are not even hiding it any long and call it the 2030 Agenda.
But regardless of Satan’s 2030 Agenda which includes the Evil “Great Reset” – Christ has us “Elect” here for the sole purpose to spread the TRUE GOSPEL which includes “The Rapture Truth” that is REVEALED in Christ’s True Eschatology RIGHT UP TO THE VERY LAST DAY!!!
And the prayer of us “Elect” should be
“...bring us not into temptation, but deliver us from THE EVIL ONE” who is SATAN.
Elijah Went Through a Time of Great Apostasy Before Being Raptured
And He is our Example Today in This Time of Great Apostasy BEFORE THE RAPTURE!!!
I LOVE Elijah – for he is such an example to us going through this time of GREAT APOSTASY and Tribulation. I mean – think about it – there he was ONE MAN OF GOD standing on Mount Carmel confronting the 850 FALSE PROPHETS who worshipped Baal and Asheroth who were so part of the SWAMP back then and were so well connected to King Ahab and his wife Jezebel that they ate at their table every day!!! And because the King of Israel was not even worshipping the GOD OF ISRAEL – is it any wonder that when Elijah asked God’s people to stand up for the God of Israel that God’s people said NOTHING???!!!
And isn’t that just what we see happening TODAY???!!! God Bless the brave men and women like Elijah who are TODAY so boldly saying in front of everyone assembled in the SWAMP in our Government and also the United Nations which today includes a lot more than just the 850 False Prophets of Baal and Asheroth in Elijah’s day -- who are making a plea for SOMEONE to stand up for GOD when Elijah said:
"How long will you waver between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow Him;
but if Baal is God, follow him.” (1st Kings 18:20-40)
And going into this New Year -- just know that I am more committed than EVER to remain faithful to Christ’s True Eschatology. And I pray daily that Christ will give me the Spiritual eyes to see clearly what He REVEALED in His True Eschatology of “the End of Days” that we are living in NOW so that I can continue to write THE TRUTH of what is going on today in this time of GREAT TRIBULATION for Christ. That I can understand the events that are taking place with THE MIND OF CHRIST and have the courage to speak with His Voice and to be a REFLECTION of His Light in a World that grows SPIRITUALLY DARKER by the minute. For sadly we are living in APOSTATE TIMES just like Elijah was when NO ONE even WANTS TO HEAR THE TRUTH!!! And rest assured that THE RAPTURE of
Elijah figures into today’s RAPTURE that is coming soon on the LAST DAY!!!
For before Christ Raptured Elijah – He gave him the courage to stand up on Mount Carmel and demonstrate to the people of God what an AWESOME GOD that the God of Israel was who we now know is JESUS CHRIST!!! And that Day on Mount Carmel FORESHADOWS this Final Eschatological Battle between Christ and Satan that everyone on Earth is involved in TODAY which Christ will WIN just as He had Elijah win over the 850 Prophets of Baal and Asheroth – THINK ABOUT IT!!! Buckle your seatbelts – for Christ’s Army of “Chariots of FIRE” could part the very Heavens any day now and RAPTURE US "ELECT" just like He did with Elijah!!!
