The Future – According to God – There Will Be NO Secret Rapture

The Future – According to God

Doesn’t everybody want to know the future, before it happens. If those Tarot card readers could really tell the future, if Psychics really knew what was going to happen in your future, you would want to know. Sadly to say, they cannot tell anyone’s future with 100% accuracy (or any accuracy!) If they could really tell the future, why aren’t they buying lottery tickets like crazy? They can’t.
What if there was a book on this earth, that ALWAYS , every time, was 100% accurate, for almost 6,000 years, would you read it?
There is such a perfect book.
It was written by at least 40 different writers, in three different languages, over a period of 1,500 years. Yes, that’s right, many of it’s authors never saw each other, or lived at the same time. It has 1,817 different predictions, concerning future world empires, Alexander the Great, Cyrus the Great, the history of Israel, the destruction of many cities. And so much moire, always with 100% pinpoint accuracy, centuries before these events happened.
It is called the Holy Bible. Jesus quoted it many times and authenticated it.
How is it possible that so many people used a pen and paper to write it, and ALL the authors, totally agree, even though, they lived centuries apart, and had a wide variety of professions. Yet, it totally agrees , as if it ONLY had ONE author?
Because it does. the real author is the third member of the Trinity , the Godhead. He is called The Holy Spirit.
This is what The Holy Bible says about itself. In the book of 2 Peter it says: 1:21 “For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.”

It is the ONLY book God has ever written. There is no other Holy Book on earth.

Satan does not like this!
There is a real devil. He wants to be God and take His place. He always questions God’s Word. to Eve he said in Genesis 3:1 “Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?” He makes you question whether the Word of God is true. He deceived the first woman into disobeying God, and eating the fruit God warned her not to Eve. Adam her husband was not deceived, he willingly disobeyed God, ate of the fruit, and that is how Sin, heartache , pain, tears, and death entered into the world. God did not make these things. He warned them not to disobey Him, or they would die. He saw all things and said they were “good”. Then man questioned and disobeyed God. And so , here we are.
The Bible IS the final authority for all things that are, right and wrong.
It reveals God is Holy and always judges sin.
The bible teaches us that God is Eternal, and never changes, so right and wrong never change.
God is not “politically Correct”.
He answers to no one.
He made everything. The Bible teaches us that Jesus is the Creator. He made everything, from nothing.
Colossians 1:14 says about Jesus Christ, that we are forgiven of our sins, by the blood he shed on the cross, that He is the image of the invisible God, that he created ALL things, that He holds all the atoms together, they consist by Him. Read it yourself.
“In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: 15 Who is the image 1
of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:
16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: 17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.
18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;”

Of the 1,817 prophecies of the Bible, I am going to list a few of them here, concerning Jesus of Nazareth, proving, that what I am about to write about the future was taken from an infallible, perfect eternal, book. The Holy Bible. Writers can misinterpret the Holy Scriptures, but God can not make a mistake. Think about it. If God says “You must obey my Word, or I will punish you, and I do not have His Word, that is not fair. God is perfectly, always Just. He never makes a mistake or is wrong.

29 Prophecies fulfilled in One Day !

The following 29 prophecies from the Old Testament, speak of the betrayal, trial, death and burial of our Lord Jesus Christ, were spoken of various times by many different voices during the 5 centuries from 1000-500 B.C., and yet all of them were literally fulfilled in Jesus in one 24 hour period.

Betrayed by friends.
Prophecy: Psalms 41:9- “Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, which did eat of my bread, hath lifted up his heel against me.
Psalm 55:12- “ For it was not an enemy that reproached me; then I could have borne it: neither was it he that hated me that did magnify himself against me; then I would have hid myself from him: 13 But it was thou, a man mine equal, my guide, and mine acquaintance. 14 We took sweet counsel together, and walked unto the house of God in company.”

61 And said, This fellow said, I am able to destroy the temple of God, and to build it in three days.”

Dumb before accusers.
Prophecy: Isaiah 53:7- “He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.”

Fulfilled: Matthew 27:12- “And when he was accused of the chief priests and elders, he answered nothing. 13 Then said Pilate unto him, Hearest thou not how many things they witness against thee? 14 And he answered him to never a word; insomuch that the governor marvelled greatly.”

Wounded and bruised.
Prophesy: Isaiah 53:5- “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.” Zechariah 13:6- “And one shall say unto him, What are these wounds in thine hands? Then he shall answer, Those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends.”

Mocked.
Prophecy: Psalms 22:7- “All they that see me laugh me to scorn: they shoot out the lip, they shake the head, saying, 8 He trusted on the LORD that he would deliver him: let him deliver him, seeing he delighted in him.”

Fulfilled: John 19:17- “And he bearing his cross went forth into a place called the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha:” Luke 23:26- “And as they led him away, they laid hold upon one Simon, a Cyrenian, coming out of the country, and on him they laid the cross, that he might bear it after Jesus.”

Hands and feet pierced.
Prophecy: Psalms 22:16- “For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet.” Zechariah 12:10 – “And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.”

Fulfilled: Luke 23:33- “And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the other on the left.” John 20:25- “The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe.”

Crucified with thieves.
Prophecy: Isaiah 53:12- “Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.”

Fulfilled: Matthew 27:38- “Then were there two thieves crucified with him, one on the right hand, and another on the left.”
Note: Crucifixion was a Roman punishment, it was unknown in Jewish law. The type of death pictured in Isaiah 53, and Psalm 22 did not come into practice under the Jewish system until hundreds of years after the account was written.
Made Intercession for His persecutors.
Prophecy: “…and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.”

Fulfilled: Luke 23:34- “Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.” Can we, as selfish sinners, imagine such perfect love? He was spit upon, beaten mocked, and being slowly tortured to death, yet He asked for His enemies to be forgiven. Such love!
Rejected by His own people.
Prophecy: Isaiah 53:3- “He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.”

Fulfilled: John 7:5- “For neither did his brethren believe in him.” & 48- “Have any of the rulers or of the Pharisees believed on him?” John 1:11- “He came unto his own, and his own received him not.”

Hated without a cause.
Prophecy: Psalms 69:4- “They that hate me without a cause are more than the hairs of mine head:…” Isaiah 49:7- “Thus saith the LORD, the Redeemer of Israel, and his Holy One, to him whom man despiseth, to him whom the nation abhorreth, to a servant of rulers,…”
Fulfilled: John 15:25- “But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.”

Friends stood far off.
Prophecy: Psalms 38:11- “My lovers and my friends stand aloof from my sore; and my kinsmen stand afar off.”

Fulfilled: Luke 23:49- “And all his acquaintance, and the women that followed him from Galilee, stood afar off, beholding these things.”

People shook their heads.
Prophecy: Psalms 109:25- “I became also a reproach unto them: when they looked upon me they shaked their heads.”

Fulfilled: Matthew 27:39- “And they that passed by reviled him, wagging their heads,”
Stared upon.
Prophecy: Psalms 22:17- “I may tell all my bones: they look and stare upon me.”

Fulfilled: Luke 23:35- “And the people stood beholding….”

Garments parted and lots cast.
Prophecy: Psalms 22:18- “They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture.”

Fulfilled: John 19: 23- “ Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took his garments, and made four parts, to every soldier a part; and also his coat: now the coat was without seam, woven from the top throughout.
24 They said therefore among themselves, Let us not rend it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be: that the scripture might be fulfilled, which saith, They parted my raiment among them, and for my vesture they did cast lots. These things therefore the soldiers did.”

To suffer thirst:
Prophecy: Psalms 69:21- “They gave me also gall for my meat; and in my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.” Psalms 22:15- “My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; and thou hast brought me into the dust of death.”

Fulfilled: John 19:28- “ After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst.”
Gall and vinegar offered Him.
Prophecy: Psalms 69:21- “They gave me also gall for my meat; and in my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.”

Fulfilled: Matthew 27:34- “They gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when he had tasted thereof, he would not drink.”

His forsaken cry.
Prophecy: Psalm 221a- “My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?…”

Fulfilled: Matthew 27:46- “And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?”
Committed Himself to God.
Prophecy: Psalms 31:5- “Into thine hand I commit my spirit: thou hast redeemed me, O LORD God of truth.”

Fulfilled: Luke 23:46- “And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost.”

Bones not broken.
Prophecy: Psalms 34:20- “He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken.”

Fulfilled: John 19:32- “Then came the soldiers, and brake the legs of the first, and of the other which was crucified with him.
33 But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead already, they brake not his legs:”
Note: Jesus was also the fulfillment of all the symbolical ordinances as laid down through Moses in the pass-over lamb. There was not a bone to be broken. It was roasted (not sodden, he bore the wrath (fire) of God against sin.) The pass-over lamb was to be eaten at one time, not left for tomorrow, Jesus was not left to hang on the cross. It was a male lamb, it was to be spotless, Jesus was sinless. etc. There are two other prophecies also fulfilled concerning His bones. Psalms 22:14 speaks of ALL His bones being out of joint, crucifixion does this, and Psalms 22:17 says “they can tell all His bones” (as He hung on the cross).

Stop!! Think!! How infinite and infallible is our God, past figuring out. Who can know Him. These scriptures written, in some cases, thousands of years in advance, tell of a coming Savior, the Messiah of the Jews. Throughout the centuries, scribes and students of the Word waited for a person who would be “of the seed of a woman, born of a virgin, descended from Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, of the tribe of Judah, descendent of King David, born in Bethlehem.” He had to be preceded by “the voice crying in the desert (John the Baptist) He had to teach in parables, He had to do miracles, and at the grand conclusion of His life, we are now studying 29 prophecies fulfilled in one 24 hour period. It is like watching a video of a future event that has not happened yet. God writes things that have not yet come to pass, as if they have already happened. An invisible God, in control of everything. Genetic family lineage, language, etc. Even down to soldiers gambling for your clothes, all foretold. Only a very proud and spiritually blind person could deny the reality of God and deny the inspiration , and preservation of His perfect Word.

Heart broken.
Prophecy: Psalm 22:14- “I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint: my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels.”

Fulfilled: John 19:34- “ But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water.”
The blood and water which came out from His pierced side are evidence that the heart had literally burst.

His side pierced.
Prophecy: Zechariah 12:10- “And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.”

Fulfilled: John 19:34- “But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water.”

Darkness over the land.
Prophecy: Amos 8:9- “And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord GOD, that I will cause the sun to go down at noon, and I will darken the earth in the clear day:”

Fulfilled: Matthew 27:45- “Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour.”

Buried in rich man’s tomb.
Prophecy: Isaiah 53:9- “And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.”

Fulfilled: Matthew 27:57- “When the even was come, there came a rich man of Arimathea, named Joseph, who also himself was Jesus’ disciple:
58 He went to Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus. Then Pilate commanded the body to be delivered. 59 And when Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, 60 And laid it in his own new tomb, which he had hewn out in the rock: and he rolled a great stone to the door of the sepulchre, and departed.”

There we have it, Jesus Christ of Nazareth, Lord, King, High Priest, Savior, and Messiah of the Jews and the world. Amen, even so come Lord Jesus.
The Most amazing prophecy in the bible:

The book of Daniel was written about 605 B.C.. In Daniel 9:21-26 an Angel revealed to the prophet Daniel the total future History of the Nation of Israel. He said there would be 70 weeks of years until the Messiah would rein. This means 70 x 7, which equals 490 years. (A biblical year is 360 days). At that time, the Temple of Israel was destroyed, and Israel was in captivity in Babylon. The Angel told Daniel that from the time the order went forth to rebuild the walls of the Temple, which happened in 425 B.C., until the Messiah (Jesus) presented Himself, would be 69 weeks of years.. (69×7= 483 years). This prophecy was made 173,880 days into the future. It was fulfilled to the exact day, when Jesus rode into Jerusalem on the back of a little donkey. Just as the prophets said. This day was April 6, 32 A.D.
There still remains 7 years on God’s calendar dealing with the Nation of Israel, (This is called Daniel’s 70th week) when they will eventually accept Him as Messiah, and He will return then to reign for 1000 years, literally in Jerusalem. This is one of the main purposes of the Great Tribulation, which will soon engulf this earth, called by Jeremiah “The time of Jacob’s trouble.” God will put intense pressure on the Jewish people, to turn to the Messiah, Jesus. Right now, as a people and nation, they do not accept Him, but they will. Zachariah 13:8 says that two thirds of the Israelis will be killed. The remnant will accept Him, and be born again, in one day, while they flee from the persecution of the world and the Anti-Christ, the Evil Satanically possessed dictator to soon come, and rule this Earth..
Zachariah 13:8 “And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein. 9 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.”

I submit to you, that what I am going to write concerning my future and yours, if correctly backed-up and interpreted by the Word of God, will come to pass, just as the Word of God said it will. Pay attention!

In the book of Daniel, God revealed, in a dream to the leader of the world super power at that time, Nebuchadnezzar , the entire future of the Human race. He shows this heathen king all the future empires that would reign, until Jesus Christ would come back, and set up His eternal Kingdom.
He did it by having him dream about a statue, made of various metals, representing future kingdoms, which were to come. Daniel not only told him what his dream was, he also interpreted what it meant. This was over 2,500 years ago. We can now look back at History and see it’s fulfillment.
I will add my comments in parenthesis in italics. ( )
Daniel 2:26 The king answered and said to Daniel, whose name was Belteshazzar, Art thou able to make known unto me the dream which I have seen, and the interpretation thereof?
27 Daniel answered in the presence of the king, and said, The secret which the king hath demanded cannot the wise men, the astrologers, the magicians, the soothsayers, shew unto the king;
28 But there is a God in heaven that revealeth secrets, and maketh known to the king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days. Thy dream, and the visions of thy head upon thy bed, are these;
29 As for thee, O king, thy thoughts came into thy mind upon thy bed, what should come to pass hereafter: and he that revealeth secrets maketh known to thee what shall come to pass.
30 But as for me, this secret is not revealed to me for any wisdom that I have more than any living, but for their sakes that shall make known the interpretation to the king, and that thou mightest know the thoughts of thy heart.
31 ¶ Thou, O king, sawest, and behold a great image. This great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before thee; and the form thereof was terrible.
32 This image’s head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass,
33 His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay.
34 Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces.
35 Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.
36 This is the dream; and we will tell the interpretation thereof before the king.
37 Thou, O king, art a king of kings: for the God of heaven hath given thee a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory.
38 And wheresoever the children of men dwell, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the heaven hath he given into thine hand, and hath made thee ruler over them all. Thou art this head of gold. (Babylon was the then world empire.)
39 And after thee shall arise another kingdom inferior to thee, (The next world empire was the arms and shoulders of silver, the dual empire of the Medes and Persians, that defeated Babylon in one night, by stopping up the river that flowed under the famous walls of Babylon , marching their army under the Babylonian walls through this empty riverbed, and conquering Babylon, without a fight. Just as the bible said would happen.)
and another third kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the earth.
(The next kingdom after the Medes and the Persians was represented by the belly of Brass, which was the Greek Empire, led by Alexander the Great. then Alexander died, and his kingdom was divided up by 4 Generals.)
40 And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise. (Many believe this fourth kingdom was the Roman Empire, but it could also be the Ottoman empire, that ruled in the Middle East until World War Two. It could be represented by the two legs of iron, the two divisions of Islam, the Sunni and the Shia. However, Islam did not start until 600 years after Christ was crucified. So it makes sense the fourth kingdom of Iron was the Romans. One of Alexander’s Generals took over the area where this final empire of Iron arose, and it is predicted that the “little horn” [ a horn in the Bible is the symbol of leadership],another symbol of the coming antichrist will come out of one of the four empires from which Alexander the Great’s empire was divided,) Note the scriptures: Daniel 8:8 Therefore the he goat waxed very great: (this refers to Alexander the Great) and when he was strong, the great horn was broken; and for it came up four notable ones (Alexander’s kingdom split up by four generals) toward the four winds of heaven. 9 And out of one of them came forth a little horn, (The little horn is thought to represent the coming Antichrist, the Lawless One) which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land. (The pleasant Land is Israel.)
41 And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters’ clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay.
42 And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken.
43 And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.
(Many have taught that the Antichrist arises out of the European Common Market, partly iron, partly clay, just as they are made up of nations with strong and weak individual culturally divergent people. Or, a new interpretation is that the final world empire will be made up of ten Muslim countries “the Caliphate” that is forming now under ISIS. We shall see. The Antichrist WILL be given the authority to rule the world from a final 10 nation confederacy.) Revelation 17:12 ” And the ten horns which thou
sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.” (The Antichrist is also called “The Beast”)
13 These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.”
(God’s Word Always comes true. We often look back and see what we thought He was saying was not how we interpreted His Word. So I am very, prayerfully, careful.)
44 And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.” (Jesus will return at Armageddon, destroy the armies of Antichrist arrayed against Him, and set up His Eternal Kingdom .)
45 “Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.”

We are living in a time when the Words of scripture are daily being fulfilled, before our eyes. It is an exciting time, as well as a perilous time. Did god’s Word always come true. Yes it did! Every time. So we can trust what he writes in His Holy Word about the future , also.
With perfect accuracy, God gave us over 300 predictions about the coming Savior and Messiah, Jesus of Nazareth. They all ca me true. Why doesn’t everyone rave and rant over such amazing book? As we study further about things that will soon happen according to God’s Word, have a humble, meek Spirit.

The Bible says that there will come a future 7 year period of Great Tribulation. This is the final “week” of God’s dealing with the Nation of Israel.
Tribulation comes from what men do to each other.
Paul told Christians that they must enter the Kingdom of God, through “much tribulation”. We are not promised as believers in Christ that we will escape tribulation, trouble and affliction in this word.
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.”
Jesus told us what to look for leading up to this time of worldwide trouble, The Great Tribulation.
There will be a World Dictator, long awaited, possessed by Satan himself, known as the Antichrist, who will enforce a 7 year treaty with Israel.
3 1/2 years into this treaty, he will enter into the rebuilt third Jewish Temple, and commit a terrible deed of blasphemy by setting up an idol of himself, and telling Israel to worship “him” as their God. Jesus called that the “Abomination of Desolation” that Daniel the ancient prophet predicted. Jesus gave instructions how to respond.
There will be a time when Jesus returns for all believers, commonly called “the rapture of the Saints”. The Bible tells us when to look for this great future event.
And, then , there will be a time of Great Wrath from God on the unbelieving world left behind . When God sends the horrible plagues and judgments described in the book of Revelation.
Wrath is what God does to men.
There is a difference, it seems, between, The Day of Christ, which is the Rapture
and the “Day of the Lord” which is His wrath against man’s sin.
Jesus said if these days were not shortened, nobody would be left alive.
I think the best place to start is in Matthew 24. I will insert my commentary, interpretation. You will see Jesus is very plain, and wants us to know what to expect.

Matthew 24: 1 ¶ And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple.
2 And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.

This was fulfilled in 70 AD when Titus and the Roman legions destroyed Jerusalem. The Temple was
accidentally set on fire, and melted the gold in it. It melted into the rocks. The Roman soldiers salvaged all this gold by digging up “every stone”, just like Jesus said.

Matt. 24 continued : 3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?

When is the end of the world? Pretty simple question. If you could ask God such a question , wouldn’t you want to know, also?

Continued : 4 ¶ And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

David Koresh claimed to be Jesus, The “cult” leader at Waco. Many others have deceived their followers into believing the same thing. That is why you have to be always comparing what you are taught to the Word of God. That, is your final authority. I was taught the pre-tribulation rapture and preached it for 36 years, but I appear to have been wrong. You will see as we go further into Matthew 24, that we are told to look for certain events to take place ‘”before” Jesus comes for His Bride the Church made up of Born Again believers.

Continued: 6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

There have always been wars, and rumors of wars, and famines and earthquakes. The key to understanding that we are in “the Last Days” before Christ comes back is that these and many other events become more intense, powerful, and occur more often. There is a convergence like when a woman starts having her labor pains before she gives birth, they increase and are stronger. At the same time, the key to all prophecy is Israel. The bible says Israel had to be back in the land, after being judged by God for murdering their own Messiah and spread throughout the world for 2,000 years, without having a Homeland, miraculously, they became a Nation in one day, just as the Bible predicted, May 14, 1948.Jesus says that this generation that sees these signs, which we will soon read about, will see Him come back. As of the writing of this book, October 7, 2015, we just had a major earthquake in Nepal a few months ago, then we had a major earthquake in chile last month. We just had a flood so bad in the Carolina, in the USA that it has not been this bad for 1000 years. We have Russia now flying sorties to bomb ISIS, in the middle East. We have refugees swarming into Europe. Many are expecting a financial collapse worldwide any moment. Volcanoes are erupting worldwide. We had 39,000 earthquakes so far thus year, some small, some large and devastating. We have a Pope that is acting like the biblical “False Prophet” forming a One World Religion. We have a strong effort to finalize a One World Economy. It is the time of the end.

8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
Just the beginning. Remember, Jesus warned us.

Continued: 9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.
Persecution against Christians will get worse and worse. What did He say “Ye shall be hated ALL Nation’s for Jesus sake. As we continue our study, you will see, according to god’s Word Jesus will not come secretly in the clouds to “snatch” away the believers in the rapture, and escape the Great Tribulations caused by man against each other, but will be persecuted, and killed. the bible says in 2 Thessalonians that many will “fall away” they will abandon the faith when persecution does come. They will be “offended” because it will get harder and harder to stand for Christ. You may have been taught differently, I was, but you will see by our study of the bible, what to expect and look for.

10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

Sin will abound. It will get much more wicked , all around us. People will crack, and turn in loved ones to “The global Government”. For what? Anything that will not go along with their plans. Right now it is just words, and targeting by the IRS, maybe. Those who refuse to support a One World Religion will be persecuted as trouble makers. It will end with beheading those who refuse to worship the Anti-Christ and worship him, and take His mark, the 666.

13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

This is not talking about being “saved” , born again, but saved alive through all the horrors soon to plague mankind. Those Christians who make it to the Rapture, will have endured. they will be saved, raptured taken out to Heaven..

Matthew 24 Continued: 14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

God will once again use persecution to spread His Word, just as in the first days of Christianity, as recorded in the book of Acts. Acts 8:4 Therefore they that were scattered abroad went every where preaching the word.
Acts 11:19 Now they which were scattered abroad upon the persecution that arose about Stephen travelled as far as Phenice, and Cyprus, and Antioch, preaching the word to none but unto the Jews only. Who will reach the unreached tribes in New Guinea, the Amazon, etc.? The persecuted Christians will.

15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)

Daniel 11:31 And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate.
Daniel 12:11 And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days.
This scripture is what Jesus is referring to. It is yet future. It was not fulfilled when Antiochus IV Epiphanes slaughtered a pig on the Jewish altar around 195 BC. . The event Jesus told ALL of us to watch for, not just the Jews, is yet future. Mark 13:37 “And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.”

There are many verses and parables that warn us to be living right,to be a fathful servant, waiting patiently for the Coming of our Lord from Heaven. Jesus and his Word clearly teach their must be some things that happen “before” this Great Day, the Day of Christ comes. We are to be praying and waiting as we see “that day approaching”.

Luke 12:35 “Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning;
36 And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him immediately.
37 Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them.
38 And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants.
39 And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through.
40 Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not.
41 ¶ Then Peter said unto him, Lord, speakest thou this parable unto us, or even to all?
42 And the Lord said, Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his lord shall make ruler over his household, to give them their portion of meat in due season?
43 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.
44 Of a truth I say unto you, that he will make him ruler over all that he hath.”

Let us see what Jesus tells those alive in Jerusalem when the Anti- Christ does this Abomination, to do.

16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:
17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house:
18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.
19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!
20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:

Run for the hills!! Run Christ says. The Anti-Christ will intensely hunt down and kill all those who will not bow down to him. He will have his soldiers go after all those who oppose him, especially Jews and Christians. The bible says 2 out of three Jews will be killed, sad to say. Zechariah 13:8 “And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein.
9 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. ” They will finally turn to Jesus and accept Him as their Messiah!

Continued: Matthew 24:21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.

This is where we get the title “The Great Tribulation” from. Jesus called it that. Mankind’s wars, earthquakes, hatred, lusts, and evil desires will cause this Great Tribulation. It is different from the Horrors God will send upon mankind called the “Day of His wrath”, and “the Day of the Lord”.
Christ promised us that He would deliver us from His wrath.
1Thessalonians 1:10 “And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.” We shall be raptured out before the Day of His wrath, but we are NOT promised that we will experience tribulation. In fact we are promised in
John 16:33 “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” Jesus warns His disciples that they will face tribulation. the pre-Trib rapture teaches we shall escape tribulation. I believe the believers in Christ will go through part of the Great Tribulation. Keep reading why I came to believe this.
1Thessalonians 5:9 “For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,” Because of the sin of man, the Tribulation , trouble in the world, will become very Great. But this is nothing like what the world will experience when God pours out His wrath, as predicted in the plagues, and judgments in the book of Revelation.

23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.
24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
25 Behold, I have told you before.

The false prophet that will soon appear, that will form a one world religion, will do lying signs and wonders, miracles. Do not be deceived. The devil can work a miracle. You must know what the bible says and use discernment. The Bible says to “try the spirits, to see if they are from God.1 John 4;11”
Revelation 19:20 “And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.”
Revelation 13:11 ¶ “And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.
12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.”
These verses teach us that the false prophet will try to force all men to worship the Anti-Christ. He will be able to call fire down from Heaven. They also teach us that the Anti-Christ will receive a mortal head wound, and then miraculously be healed and raised form the dead. All the world will be amazed by this.

Continued Matthew 24:26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.
27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
28 For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.

The rapture is spoken of as “the gathering.”
2Thessalonians 2:1 “Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,”

The Lord will gather all the believers together when He comes in the clouds at the rapture.

I preached for many years that we were to look for the rapture, the coming of the Lord at any minute. but if you will read these following verses. This is not true. I prayed for the Lord to show me if there was anything I was teaching that was not true. He used some videos to show me what I believed and taught about the pre-trib rapture were not true. The Lord says there are some things that have to happen, first before He returns for His bride the church, No man knows the hour or the day, but we are to watch. Watch for what. Let us read and study some more.

2 Thessalonians 2 Vs. 2 “That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

So, it is also called “The Day of Christ”
There are several other passages that speak of this.
Philippians 1:10 says we should be sincere, and without offense till “the Day of Christ’
“That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ;”
Philippians 2:16 says we should hold forth the word of life, so that Paul can rejoice “in the day of Christ”.
The day of Christ is a day of hope. The time of God’s wrath , The Day of the Lord is not a day of hope, but of fearful judgments.
” Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain.”
The “Day of Christ ” is when Jesus comes for the believers. It is not “the Day of the Lord” That is the time of His wrath, that starts after the rapture.
Right after the rapture, believers will appear before Christ to be rewarded for their works, and then we will all participate in the “Marriage Supper of the Lamb”.

Continued: 2 Thessalonians 2:3 ¶ “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?”

So does Paul say that the day of Christ is when Jesus comes secretly for us, and that nothing has to happen before this yet future great event?
NO
He says that the rapture, the Day of Christ, WILL NOT COME EXCEPT..
There come a falling away first. AND.. The man of sin revealed, the Anti-Christ.
We will see the Anti-Christ be revealed. The bible teaches us that the Holy Spirit is restraining him right now, but that restraint will one day be revealed.
2Thessalonians 2:7 “For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.”
This is the great apostasy that is now occurring when many are forsaking the truth s of the bible.
I believe many more will forsake Christianity as persecution against the followers of Christ and the teaching of the Bible increases. It is given to the anti-Christ to overcome the Saints. Remember Jesus warned us that they shall deliver us up “to afflict us, and kill us” in Matt. 24.
This may also be why he posed the question in Luke 18:8b”..Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?” Many will fall away, sad to say.
Daniel 7:21 “I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them;”
He shall “wear out” the Saints, those believers in Christ.
Daniel 7:25 “And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High,”
So, will the Saints be taken away and not have to suffer Tribulation?
I believe many will be martyred.
This verse in Revelation 13 says the Anti-Christ will overcome the Saints.
Revelation 13:7 “And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.”
Back to Matthew 24:29 “Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:”
AFTER!! After the Tribulation . Reader note. He uses words that describe the events to come in sequence.. AFTER… THEN…. Read on.

When we see the sun and moon go dark, then AFTER that, Know that He is at the door, and will come for his elect, His Saints!! This event is also described in Revelation 6.

Revelation 6:12 “And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;
13 And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.
14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.”
This is an event no one will miss, even if you are blind, you will feel the earthquake. Jesus comes for His Saints like a massive Hollywood entrance. As a bolt of lightening when it is pitch black. Revelation 6 gives us some more details us this coming event. It almost sounds like a Nuclear Holocaust. the Heavens are rolled back. Terribly frightening. Read the following verses. Men know that they will now experience God’s wrath. Jesus has come for His Saints, read in minute detail how he foretells sending His Angels to “GATHER” (it is the gathering of the rapture) His Saints from all the corners of the earth and Heaven. He further describes it that “one shall be taken, the other left.” One is raptured, the other, not saved, left to go through the wrath of the Lamb.

Revelation 6:15 “And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;
16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:
17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?” We will talk about His wrath later, called The Day of the Lord.

Back to Matthew 24:30 “And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet,

A trumpet and with clouds, this is describing the same event. The Day of Christ , the Rapture of the Saints.

A parallel verse surely talking about the same rapture, the gathering of Christians , is in 1 Thessalonians 4: says in verse 16 “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: 17 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.
18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
1 ¶ But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.
2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.”
4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.”

We will see the the Antichrist come to power, the falling away apostasy, the abomination of desolation, the darkening of the sun and moon. We will not be overtaken as a thief in the night. the world will be shocked. Man times Jesus said that His coming would come as a thief in the night, suddenly. No man knows the hour or the day, but Jesus said when we see these things, know that He is at the door, ready
to come for His saints. Read below:

Matthew 24:30 CONTINUED “..and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
32 ¶ Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye
know that summer is nigh:
33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

He uses the sudden coming of the world wide flood during Noah’s Day, to compare it to the sudden coming of judgment when He comes back. They will say “peace and safety.. but NO, then comes sudden destruction.

38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.

We can “see the day approaching” (Hebrews 10:25) But no man knows the day or the hour. We are not in darkness that that day should overtake us as a thief.

Matthew 24:45 “Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?
46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.
47 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.
48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;
49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;
50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,
51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”

We are exhorted to be faithfully working at the ministry the Lord gave us.
In the parable of the 10 Virgins, 5 were saved, as represented by “having oil for their lamps”. Oil is a type of the Holy Spirit. Jesus comes for His bride at midnight, represented by the groom, and the 5 unwise Virgins, who were not saved, and had no Oil, were shut out. I know you not, the most terrible words people will hear before they are thrown into Hell.
Matthew 25:1 ¶ “Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.
2 And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.
3 They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:
4 But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
5 While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.
6 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.
7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.
8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.
9 But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.
10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.
11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.
12 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.
13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

So, what we have covered so far in our study of things to come is:
The Amazing dream Nebuchadnezzar had that correctly predicted ALL the future world Empires that would come after him, and culminate in the Anti- Christ’s Kingdom, followed by the literal visible coming of Jesus Christ to set up His Eternal Kingdom symbolized in the rock, the mountain, cut out without hands.
We have seen the amazing 29 prophecies fulfilled in one 24 hour period, the Day Christ was crucified, something impossible for man to fulfill.
We have studied the final “70th week” of Daniel, which is a 7 year period known as The Great Tribulation and also known as the time of Jacob’s trouble, when Israel will go through Great Trouble’s, and the world will see the Anti-Christ come to power .

We see that contrary to the doctrine taught in the Pre- Tribulation rapture, that those believers alive then will not be “raptured” out and not have to suffer persecution, but in fact, be afflicted and killed for their faith in Christ. They will have to strive to stay alive , to “endure to the end” when Christ comes for them. They will see the Anti – Christ come to power. They will see him commit the Abomination of Desolation in the rebuilt Jewish Temple. They will see the 6th seal be opened as described in Revelation 6 when the Sun and the moon are darkened, the stars fall, and there is a great earthquake, as also described in Matthew 24:29-31. These verses seem to be describing the same event.

Revelation 6:12 “And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;
13 And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.
14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.”

Then they will know , according to Christ’s own word’s “He is at the door” ready to ascend from Heaven with clouds and the sound of a trumpet to gather all the believers, His Bride, and take them to Heaven for the marriage supper of the land. After all these things he says. After the Tribulation. Know man knows the time or the day, but we can know the season, as we see the day approaching.
After these things will come the Terrible “Day of the Lord”, “The Day of God’s Wrath” upon those who are left behind. There are many verses that show us what this time of wrath will be like. the born again believers in Christ are saved from this “temptation” that will come upon the whole earth. They are not appointed to wrath.

The people left behind KNOW it will be horrible, look how they will cry out in fear.
Revelation 6:15 “And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;
16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:
17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?”

The “Day of the Lord” is a Day of WRATH!
Zephaniah 1:14 “The great day of the LORD is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the LORD: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly.
15 That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness,
16 A day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and against the high towers.
17 And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the LORD: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung.
18 Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the LORD’S wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.”

Amos 5:20 says it will be a dark gloomy day. “Shall not the day of the LORD be darkness, and not light? even very dark, and no brightness in it?”

Obadiah 1:15 says it is a day of judgment against the Heathen. “For the day of the LORD is near upon all the heathen: as thou hast done, it shall be done unto thee: thy reward shall return upon thine own head.”

Zephaniah 1:8 says it is the Day of the Lord’s sacrifice. “And it shall come to pass in the day of the LORD’S sacrifice, that I will punish the princes, and the king’s children, and all such as are clothed with strange apparel.”
In Revelation 19:17-18 God invites the fowls to come gorge themselves on His Great Sacrifice. the dead bodies of those who have opposed Him.
” And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;
18 That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.”

In Zephaniah 1:14-18 We see again that it is a dark gloomy day, a day of trouble and distress, a bitter day, a day of trumpet and alarm, a day when God will slaughter His enemies and give their flesh to the birds.
“The great day of the LORD is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the LORD: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly.
15 That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness,
16 A day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and against the high towers.
17 And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the LORD: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung.
18 Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the LORD’S wrath; but
the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.”

Isaiah 13 Gives us many more different, and similar details concerning the day of the Lord.

Isaiah 13: 6 “Howl ye; for the day of the LORD is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty.
7 Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every man’s heart shall melt:
8 And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that travaileth: they shall be amazed one at another; their faces shall be as flames.
9 Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it.
10 For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine.
11 And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.
12 I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir.
13 Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the LORD of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger.”

Did you notice verse 10, the part I underlined? It has the same signs as Matthew 24:29
“Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:”
THE SUN AND MOON AND STARS ARE DARKENED!.
The DAY of the Lord is not a 24 hour day, but it is a period of time where God pours out His wrath on a Sinful, Christ rejecting world. The “Day of Christ” and the “Rapture” of the Saints, Their “Gathering” together unto Christ appears to immediately followed by the start of the “Day of the Lord” The Sun moon and stars will be darkened, there is a tremendous earthquake, then Jesus comes for His bride, the Saints, alive and “sleeping in Christ” in brilliant glory, as a flash of lightening. In contrast to the belief that Jesus raptures His Saints in a “secret rapture”, everyone will see Him come , and those left behind will cry out in terror, because , “The door is now shut” and the Day of the wrath of the Lamb will start.
Just as Jesus promised, we are not appointed to wrath, but we as believers will see Great Tribulation. How I wish that the Chirch did not have to go through the time of affliction and persecution. But we will.

Rev. 6:13 “And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.
14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.

The Rapture of the Saints, appears also to be called “The Day of Christ” is a day of hope for the believer, a day of comfort. We will see our loved ones that died in Christ before us. I will see again, my saved Mother and Grandmother. The Day of Wrath, the Day of the Lord, is exactly the opposite. It is a day of judgment and dismay.

Zephaniah 2:3 says is a day of the Lord’s anger.
“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.”

Zechariah 14:1-9 Describes the coming of Jesus Christ at Armageddon, and goes into great detail about the battle against Jerusalem.
“1 ¶ Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee.
2 For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.
3 Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.
4 And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.
5 And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the LORD my God shall come, and all the saints with thee.
6 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light shall not be clear, nor dark:
7 But it shall be one day which shall be known to the LORD, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light.
8 ¶ And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be.
9 And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one.”
There will only be ONE God, forever. Jesus Christ, KING of KINGS and LORD of LORDS. Amen!

Revelation 19:11-16 Describes Jesus coming back with us, the Saints who have been in Heaven with Hi after the Rapture.

“And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF
LORDS.”

On purpose , I talked about the “Day of Christ”, and the “Day of the Lord”, and have not yet mentioned the rest of the book of Revelation, after the 6th seal is opened in Revelation 6. Revelation 6 almost corresponds exactly with the sequence of events given by Christ in Matthew 24. After the 6th seal is opened, there will be horrible judgments which the reader can read for himself. Locusts that sting those who have the Mark of the Beast, and torment them for 6 months. Heat that causeth men to chew their tongues. Rivers, lakes and all water eventually turning to blood. All green things eventually burned up. Billions killed, war, famine and death, everywhere. Read it for yourself. I would not want my enemy to go through this. Read it for yourself.

There it is, The Future according to God. Every word will come to pass. I hope I am wrong about the rapture. I could wish, as I preached for 36 years, that Jesus will come secretly to take us to Heaven, before the Tribulation starts.
Here are the verses that teach a secret coming to “snatch away” all believers.
” … ”
There are none. There are many verses that teach a literal “gathering, a snatching away, a rapture” of all believers, but I can not find one that teaches a secret rapture. It appears that AFTER the Matthew 24:29 verses that say the sun and moon and stars are darkened, we are to look for Him to come for all believers, suddenly, like lightening, like the flood of Noah came suddenly. He says then, one shall be taken, the other left. this appears to be the sequence of events.
I used verses like Revelation 4 when John was caught up in the Spirit to Heaven. This is only one man. Not multitudes of believers, millions and millions, bodily resurrected.
I noted that the Church was not mentioned from Revelation 4 until the end of the Tribulation. this is not true. We are judged at the marriage supper of the lamb, in Heaven. Who are these multitudes described in these verses? They came out of the Great Tribulation (verse 14).

Revelation 7:9-17 “9 After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;
10 And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.
11 And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God,
12 Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.
13 ¶ And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?
14 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
15 Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them.
16 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.
17 For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.”

This doctrine seems to have originated in 1830 when a girl had a dream that Jesus would take us to Heaven,. (I was told the Church has always believed the rapture happened after the Tribulation. That there never has been found one document before 1830 that spoke of a Pre- Trib rapture, Not one denomination, not one preacher. Nothing. Is this true? Maybe someone more skilled in research than
me can work on this. If what there is any error any the things I have written and now believe, please let me know.) The doctrine of the pre-trib rapture was published in the notes, of the Scoffield reference Bible . Many bible colleges and preachers used these notes and began to believe this doctrine called the Pre- Tribulation rapture. I believed it. I think I was wrong. I certainly do not have all my doctrine perfect. Who does. But God wants us to know the truth. He very plainly describes the sequence of events. He uses the words “then”. Then this happens, then this. And He uses the word “after”. After this happens , then this is next.
The Pre-Trib Rapture doctrine gives you Hope, that as things in this world become more evil, before you have to really be persecuted for your faith, you will be secretly taken away to Heaven and not have to suffer or be persecuted. When this does not happen, many will become discouraged and quit on God, fall away, stop serving Him. this doctrine has saturated this generation through books like “The Left
Behind ” series. (I read them all.) through movies like ” A thief in the night”. I watched it.
2 weeks ago (Oct 3, 2015) For several days during my prayer time, I humbly prayed the Lord to search me, and show me if there was any doctrine, any thing, I was teaching that was not true. I watched some videos and discovered this. I can only ask those who are my friends to do the same. Amen
Don’t you want to know that you are preaching the truth. Your service is for Jesus. You only will answer to Him, right? What others think will not count. Jesus told His disciples all the bad things, all the tribulation they would go through, before it happened, so they could mentally prepare themselves, not be surprised, and quit. The global government, world dictator and one World Religion are approaching very rapidly. Don’t be surprised when Christians start being persecuted. Many in the middle east have already had to flee their homes, an many been beheaded for Jesus sake.
Remember, He warned you to expect it.

John 16: 1-3
” These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended.
2 They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.
3 And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me.”

If you are not saved, or do not know for sure that if you died today, you would go to Heaven, I will urge you to read how to be saved, the last part of this little book , and accept Christ now, don’t put it off any longer.
How to be Saved
WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY!
In the beginning..
There was only one way to be forgiven by God.

Jesus created the Heavens and earth.

John 1:1 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made”
These verses say that Jesus is God, and that Jesus was already there in eternity, with God the Father, in The Beginning. Verse two says He made all things.
So, if He made all things, then He has the power and the right to make the rules, right. That makes sense.

Before sin entered the world.

In the garden, Adam and Eve walked with God. God only told them one thing they could not do.
Genesis 2:17 “But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou salt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.”

God loves us, and He wants our love. Love is a free choice, God gave us the ability to make choices, we are not robots. Adam and Eve bought sin into the world when they disobeyed God and ate the forbidden fruit. The were eternal beings, but now began to die. There spirit died, and could no longer fellowship with God. God is a Spirit (John 4:24).

This why we have death, sadness, pain, disease, hate war, lust, rape, murder, in the world. Because of sin.
Romans 5:12 says ” Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:”
Why ALL are born sinners.

When Adam disobeyed God in the garden, God took His Holy Spirit out of him. His spirit now could not communicate with God, because Adam’s spirit was now dead. (God is a Spirit John 4:24) His body began to die. The wages of sin is death. This is the source of all that is bad in the world, sin.
You and I receive our blood line, we inherit what kind of blood runs through our veins, 100% from our father. The sin nature , that which is inside of us and makes us rebel against God, makes us selfish, makes us unable to please God, is inherited from our father, and passed to every single person.

We do not think we are sinners.. until…

When we examine our lives against God’s perfect standard, absolute Holiness, pure love, we realize we have a sin problem. This is the purpose of the ten commandments, to show us we are law breakers and need a Savior.
Examine your entire life against the Holy law of God. If you have ever broken just one of these commandments, in your entire life, then you can not go to Heaven on your own righteousness, you must be punished in Hell as a lawbreaker. Anyone who is born sinless (born without a sin nature) is able to love perfectly , always, and has no trouble keeping the laws of God. Jesus Christ was the only person ever born this way. Just try to keep the ten commandments one day.

You need a Savior. We already covered this, put here are the ten commandments again, in case it
will help you to review them.

James 2:10 “For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all. 11 For he that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of the law.”

The Ten Commandments.

1. And God spoke all these words, saying: “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
You shall have no other gods before me.

2. You shall not make for yourself any carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them.

3. You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain.

4. Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.

5. Honor your father and your mother.

6. You shall not murder.

7. You shall not commit adultery.

8, You shall not steal.

9. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.

10. You shall not covet (desire to have for yourself=covet)
your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor’s.”

So, have you broken God’s laws like I have?
Yes ?
No?

A Scale..?
Many people have this idea that when they die, there will be a scale, a balance, and the good things they have done in their life will be measured against all the bad that they have done. If they have done more good than bad, they think they will be allowed into Heaven. this is not true, this is not in the bible. Our entire lives will be measured against the Holiness of God, He can not let one sin into His presence.

This is why Jesus was born of a Virgin. His Father was God. Mary’s egg provided the body. His blood was sinless, it was the blood of God Almighty in His veins.
Jesus never sinned, one time in His life. This is the most amazing thing about Him. Not one wrong thought, ever, not one wrong action, ever. His entire life. If He had sinned, He could not have died for OUR sins, because He would have had to pay for His own sins. But He was without sin.

He knows what it is like to be tempted, He is our High Priest, yet without sin. Hebrews 4:15 “For
we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.”
1 Peter 2:22 says “Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:”

Now, let me explain God’s plan of redemption, the only way He has to be forgiven and not have to go to Hell.

It is thorough FAITH in an innocent blood sacrifice.

Before there was ever a church, or a pope, a Muslim religion, a Catholic religion, or any other religion, God had already showed humans that they must kill an innocent sacrifice and shed it’s blood to pay for sins.

Genesis 4:4 “And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the LORD had respect unto Abel and to his offering:”

Adam most have instructed Abel, his first son, in what sacrifice to make to God. (God told him.) He brought an innocent lamb and killed it and burnt it on an alter as a sacrifice to God.

Now, until Moses gets much clearer instructions, this is God’s plan of paying for sins. All these animal sacrifices, are a picture, a symbol, of what would happen thousands of years into the future when Jesus “God’s Lamb of Sacrifice” would die on the cross , suffer the price for all of our sins, one time, forever, and for all., with His blood.”

Hebrews 10:10 “By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
11 And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins:
12 But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God;”

God can not and will not ignore our sin. Because He is just, He must punish sin. Because He is Holy and good, He can not just overlook sin. His righteousness demands justice. The sinner must die. (Romans 6:23)
For example, if a man killed another man, and stood before the judge, and said, “I am sorry I killed a man, please forgive me, I promise not to kill again.” The man may be sorry. But justice is when a person is punished for the wrong they do. The man must be punished. Even so, Jesus took upon Himself our punishment, we deserve.
Jesus died for every man’s sin, every man who ever lived. He shed His perfect , sinless blood to pay the price for my sins and yours, so I do not have to go to Hell. He was buried for three days and nights, and then arose from the dead, proving He paid for every sin that has ever or will ever be committed. The payment for sins is death, Jesus tasted death for every person that has ever
and will ever live.
Do you believe this?
He will be your judge
Or
He will be your Savior. Do you believe Jesus is God Almighty?
He calls Himself, the Alpha and Omega, and the Almighty.

Revelation 1:8 “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.”

Do you realize you are separated from God because of your sin?

God is a Spirit. We are born with a “dead” spirit. (Ephesians 2:1)
That is why we must be born again. John 3:3 “Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

There is nothing any person can do to earn forgiveness for even one sin. We are all dependent upon God’s mercy, He loves to be merciful and show His goodness and love and forgiveness.
If we repent, turn from our selfish sinful ways and ask Him to forgive us, He will completely forgive us forever. He is waiting for you to humble yourself and repent, and believe on Jesus.
1. We are commanded to repent.
Acts 17:30 “And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:”
When a person repents, it is like God opens his eyes. They see themselves like God sees them. they realize God is Holy, and they are unholy, sinners that deserve judgment. They realize that they are living in rebellion against God and His laws. They realize they are helpless to save themselves. They see sin as an awful thing that destroys them. They turn away from doing their own will, and want to do God’s will. Jesus gave a definition of repentance when He said in Matthew 12:41 The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: because they repented at the preaching of Jonas;”
When we go to Jonah 3:8, we see what the men of Nineveh did to show they had a deep fear of God, and turned from their sins. Jonah 3:8 “But let man and beast be covered with sackcloth, and cry mightily unto God: yea, let them turn every one from his evil way, and from the violence that is in their hands.
9 Who can tell if God will turn and repent, and turn away from his fierce anger, that we perish not?
10 And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God repented of the evil, that he had said that he would do unto them; and he did it not.”
What happened? God warned them that if they did not turn from their sin, He would destroy them. Even so Jesus said “Repent or perish”.
Luke 13:5 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
When God saw their repentance was real, He repented, He changed His mind and did not punish them.
Repentance always produces change. John the Baptist said “show me you repented. Matthew 3:8 “Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance:” You must be willing to give up your sin. Paul the Apostle also taught that when a person is really saved, really born again, they are a new creature, a dramatic change takes place.
Acts 26:20 “But shewed first unto them of Damascus, and at Jerusalem, and throughout all the coasts of Judaea, and then to the Gentiles, that they should repent and turn to God, and do works meet for repentance.”
A person can bow their heads, and say a prayer, but if their life does not change, they did not get saved. This happened to me when I was 11 years old.

But..
We must accept Jesus Christ as our Savior by faith.
When I was born again in 1979, I bowed my head and asked the Lord to forgive me
And to come into my heart and save me.
I trusted God’s promise written in Chapter 10 verses 9,10 and 13 in the book of Romans.
Here is just one of many promises.

Romans 10:9 “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” verse 13 promises- “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
God promises that if you call out to Him in faith, He will come into your heart and save you.
If you do not accept Christ, you will be judged by Jesus after you die:

Revelation 20:11 ” And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. 12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. 13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. 14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. 15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.”

Hell is real:
Matthew 10:28 “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”
Jesus said we should be willing to forsake ANYTHING, make any change in our life rather than go to Hell, and He said it is forever, Since He is God , He can not lie!:
Mark 9:45 “And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:”

God says to repent, forsake our sin, and believe, trust Jesus with all our heart:
When you turn from your sin, God will be there to forgive you. He says “He will not turn you away, cast you out.”
John 6:37 All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.”
God loves you and wants to save you today!
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.”

Where ever you are right now, would you like to bow your head and ask God to forgive you and
save you so you can receive the gift of eternal life?
There are no magical words, but this is what I prayed when I got saved.
“Lord, I am sorry for my sin, I do not want to go to Hell, please forgive me right now of all my
sins, wash them away with the blood of Jesus, and come into my heart and save me now. In Jesus name, Amen.

After you are saved, you need to find a bible preaching church and get baptized in deep water, as a testimony that you believe Jesus died, was buried, and arose from the dead. Join that church, or look for a church that has a program of evangelizing the lost, and conservative music. Please get a 1611 King James version of the bible and start reading it every day. Make a prayer list and pray every day. You may get further help from my website at http://www.preacherbrazil.wordpress.com
Especially read the article about “How to witness” and start sharing what Jesus did for you. We need to warn people about Hell, and the coming Great Tribulation, and the rise of the Anti-Christ so they can be prepared.

Love in Christ,
Missionary Evangelist Steven R. Morris
