If you don’t understand Biblical History then you can’t understand Biblical Prophecy, because the past events told in the Bible actually reveal how future events will take place in the End Times.

Ecclesiastes 1 tells us this:

Ecclesiastes 1:9
What has been is what will be,
and what has been done is what will be done,
and there is nothing new under the sun.
10 Is there a thing of which it is said,
“See, this is new”?
It has been already in the ages before us.

With this is mind, Daniel 3 reveals much about the End Times anti-christ who will set himself up as “god” and demand to be worshiped (2 Thessalonians 2:4).

We see in Daniel 3 that a statue was made, which was to be worshiped by all peoples:

Daniel 3:1
King Nebuchadnezzar made an image of gold, sixty cubits high and six cubits wide

Notice the “sixes” in this verse?  This is symbolic of the number of the beast in the End Times, which is 666 (Revelation 13:18), and this statue in Daniel 3 is the foreshadow to the End Times statute which will be made for all the Earth’s inhabitants to worship (Revelation 13:12,13)

Daniel 3:3
So the satraps, prefects, governors, advisers, treasurers, judges, magistrates and all the other provincial officials assembled for the dedication of the image that King Nebuchadnezzar had set up, and they stood before it.

The then world’s governors joined in the spiritual act of worshiping this statute set up by King Nebuchadnezzar … government and religion joined at the hip … which is also a picture of the the One World Government and One World Religion of the End Time, being joined together (Revelation 13:7 & 12).

 Daniel 3:4
Then the herald loudly proclaimed, “Nations and peoples of every language, this is what you are commanded to do: 5As soon as you hear the sound of the horn, flute, zither, lyre, harp, pipe and all kinds of music, you must fall down and worship the image of gold that King Nebuchadnezzar has set up. 6Whoever does not fall down and worship will immediately be thrown into a blazing furnace. 7Therefore, as soon as they heard the sound of the horn, flute, zither, lyre, harp and all kinds of music, all the nations and peoples of every language fell down and worshiped the image of gold that King Nebuchadnezzar had set up.”

Even as all the people’s were commanded to worship Nebuchadnezzar’s statute in the days of Daniel, so all the people’s of the world will be commanded to bow and worship the statute of the anti-christ in the End Times (Revelation 13:15).

The Book of Daniel is teaching us that even as this great world power of Daniel’s time – Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon – was lord over the people’s of the earth, and commanded forced worship of the statute of the man in power at that time, so it shall be again in the End.

The ruler in the End … anti-christ … will demand worship from all the inhabitants of the Earth and will kill those who refuse!

Daniel 3:12
But there are some Jews whom you have set over the affairs of the province of Babylon—Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego—who pay no attention to you, Your Majesty. They neither serve your gods nor worship the image of gold you have set up.”

Sadly, just because one calls ones-self a Christian … or just because an organization calls itself a church … it does not mean that such a person … or organization … is a true follower of the Lord Jesus Christ.  And even as just a FEW Jews in Daniel’s time refused to bow down to worship Nebuchadnezzar’s image, so there will be only a few on the Earth in the End who will refuse to bow the knee to the anti-christ’s statue (Luke 18:8).  Yet, people who are afraid of persecution, people who are afraid of starving, or of being killed for believing and confessing that the Lord Jesus Christ alone is God, will ultimately pay with their lives in the very end … they will pay by suffering for eternity in the eternal Lake of Fire (Revelation 20:15).

Please dear reader, if you are not preparing your heart and mind TODAY for the End Time persecution which will happen in one of our tomorrow’s, then you probably will not be ready.

Study and obey the Bible TODAY, while we have many translations and the freedom to study and believe, and pray daily for God’s grace and power to over-come today’s temptations and lusts because when real persecution starts, the temptation to give in to the world’s demands will be greater than today’s temptations!

___

Remember that even as Jesus Christ, the True Lord and Savior of men, is currently preparing His Faithful Church for the End Times and for His Return, so the devil is also currently preparing his false whore church for anti-christ’s appearing!

So please get yourselves ready, Christians! Read your Bibles daily, pray and worship the Biblical Jesus Christ daily, and keep yourselves from sinful habits that want to weigh you down and make you unprepared for Christ’s Return!

On September 30, 2014 @ 9:47 a.m an Anonymous Commenter wrote the following on my blog, which can be seen at the end of my Post HERE.

“Why do you ignore the parable of the wheat and the tares?
Jesus clearly says that the tares will be gathered first and cast into the fire. then the wheat. One harvest not 2 or 3 as you propose. (I already addressed this Point #1 in my first Post seen HERE)

The saints who did not worship the beast, or take his mark take part in the first resurrection, so the anti-Christ and the great tribulation are already in play before the first resurrection. Do you claim there is a resurrection or rapture before the 1st resurrection? The dead in Christ will rise first then those who remain will be caught up in the air to meet Him and be with the Lord forever.

I am pretty sure that would include Daniel. (I will answer these statements in this Post.)

Also important to note that in the book of Daniel he told when he will rise to his reward. chapter 12; 13 But you, go your way till the end; for you shall rest, and will arise to your inheritance at the end of the days.”

The end of days is pretty clear. And if the dead in Christ rise first that includes Daniel, how can the church go before them? (Again, I will be answering these statements in this Post.)

The parable of the 10 virgins states that the 5 who were not ready when He came for them, went out and filled their lamps but were not allowed to enter after they filled them. This would imply that after the harvest or rapture it is too late for salvation. (The Foolish Virgins are too late to be taken Up in the Rapture … but they are still given the opportunity to obey Christ, and so be saved from eternal Hell, during the time that God’s Wrath is poured upon the Earth. I went into detail about this in my first Post, seen HERE)

The great tribulation is when the Christians are persecuted, at the hands of the anit-christ [sic]. God’s wrath comes to those who persecuted them. The saints will be passed over by God’s wrath just as the Jews where passed over by God’s wrath in Egypt. Because their door posts where covered by blood just as we are covered by the Blood of Jesus today.” (I believe I provide enough Scriptures in Post #1 and in this Post #2 which show that God REMOVES the True Bride of Christ from the Earth and from the coming Wrath … but readers may also read my Post HERE, which may show the Scriptures more clearly)

.

I repeat, this Commenter asks, “Do you claim there is a resurrection or rapture before the 1st resurrection?”

.

  The “First Resurrection”, which this comment refers to, is found in Revelation 20, which reads:
1 Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, holding the key of the abyss and a great chain in his hand. 2 And he laid hold of the dragon, the serpent of old, who is the devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years; …
4 Then I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was given to them. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony of Jesus and because of the word of God, and those who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received the mark on their forehead and on their hand; and they came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. 5 The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were completed. This is the first resurrection.

We see that this “First Resurrection” mentioned in Revelation 20 takes place after the entire Tribulation and Wrath of God period.   Satan is finally bound, and those who had been beheaded for Jesus’ sake and had not received the mark of the beast, will come to life and reign with Christ for a thousand years.

.

 So, is this the “first resurrection” in the way that we understand the word “first” or is this “first resurrection” a term used by God to mean something different?

.

I think this is a good and important question, and I will give my answer as I work my way through the below Chapters of the Book of Revelation, so that I can lay a clear foundation for my answer.

.

I will start in Revelation 6 where we see that the Seals, which begin the first set of Judgements, are opened. Then we read at the end of Revelation 6, that the Wrath of God is about to be poured upon the Earth as it reads:
12 I looked when He broke the sixth seal, and there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth made of hair, and the whole moon became like blood; 13 and the stars of the sky fell to the earth, as a fig tree casts its unripe figs when shaken by a great wind. 14 The sky was split apart like a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. 15 Then the kings of the earth and the great men and the commanders and the rich and the strong and every slave and free man hid themselves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains; 16 and they said to the mountains and to the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the presence of Him who sits on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb;
17 for the great day of their wrath has come, and who is able to stand?”

Note how the of the Wrath of God begins at the END of the seals being opened (vs 17).

 .

As I wrote in a previous Post (seen HERE), Revelation 6 follows right along with what Jesus taught in Matthew 24:4-31.   And in verse 29,  we must take careful note that Jesus states:

29 “But immediately after the tribulation of those days THE SUN WILL BE DARKENED, AND THE MOON WILL NOT GIVE ITS LIGHT, AND THE STARS WILL FALL from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 30 “And then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the SON OF MAN COMING ON THE CLOUDS OF THE SKY with power and great glory. 31 And He will send forth His angels with A GREAT TRUMPET and THEY WILL GATHER TOGETHER His elect from the four winds, from one end of the sky to the other.

Note that immediately after the tribulation of the days of Judgement, and BEFORE the WRATH OF GOD (we’ll see this more clearly soon), Jesus will appear in the Sky (Matthew 24:30) and Jesus will send His angels to gather His elect (Matthew 24:31).

.

Also notice that Jesus is not returning in this Matthew 24 lesson to destroy the kings of the earth yet (as He does at the End of Revelation and/or at the end of the Wrath of God), but He is simply appearing in order to send His angels forth to gather His elect.

.

This is the Pre-Wrath RAPTURE of the faithful church. For Matthew 24 goes on to read:

…so will the coming of the Son of Man be. 40 “Then there will be two men in the field; one will be taken and one will be left. 41 “Two women will be grinding at the mill; one will be taken and one will be left.

Notice how one will be taken in the Rapture, and one will be left behind?!

.

.

Jesus then goes on to teach in Matthew 24:42-51, that the hypocrite servant … or more plainly, the hypocrite Christian … will be left behind by the Master during this Rapture time-period, and the hypocrite servant/Christian will find himself “weeping and gnashing (his) teeth” due to his realization that he has been left behind!!!

.

This is a most terrible and terrifying time for the lukewarm, unprepared, hypocrite, sin-loving, Christian who is later described as a “foolish virgin” in Matthew 25!! … Let all readers please take this to heart!!   (You may read my detailed post on the difference between Eternal Hell and the time of “weeping and gnashing of teeth” HERE.)

.

Now let’s go back to the book of Revelation and the question,  is the “first resurrection” in Revelation 20:5 the time where the Church and Old Testament saints will be reurrected to be with the Lord.

.

 Revelation 7

.

We go on to read that after the Tribulation times of Revelation 6, we see a revival of Jews in Revelation 7 where many Jews are Born Again or “sealed”.

.

Why do I call these Jews “saved”?  Because when comparing this Revelation 7 term “sealed” with another Biblical example of being sealed, we see that to be “sealed” by God, means one has been Born Again and receives the “seal” of God’s Holy Spirit. See Ephesains 1:13.

.

We then see a GREAT MULTITUDE in heaven after the salvation of these Jews.    And we are told that this great multitude is, in fact,  those who have come out of the great tribulation, in Revelation 7:14.  It reads:

9 After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could count, from every nation and all tribes and peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, and palm branches were in their hands; …

13 Then one of the elders answered, saying to me, “These who are clothed in the white robes, who are they, and where have they come from?” 14 I said to him, “My lord, you know.” And he said to me, These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. 15 “For this reason, they are before the throne of God; and they serve Him day and night in His temple; and He who sits on the throne will spread His tabernacle over them. 16 “They will hunger no longer, nor thirst anymore; nor will the sun beat down on them, nor any heat; 17 for the Lamb in the center of the throne will be their shepherd, and will guide them to springs of the water of life; and God will wipe every tear from their eyes.”

Could this be the Rapture of the Church mentioned in 1 Corinthians 15:50-53 and in 2 Thessalonians 2:1-3?

.

I say YES, because we see that that:
1 – the anti-christ is revealed with the opening of the first seal in Revelation 6:2;
and we see that
2 – wars are indeed covering the earth in Revelation 6:4;

3 – we see famines and pestilences in Revelation 6:6 & 8;
and

4 – we sadly see Martyrdom in Revelation 6:11.

.

Everything that Jesus said would happen before His appearance in the sky to Rapture His faithful Church! (again see Matthew 24 above.)

.

So, when I say that the Rapture of the faithful Church occurs BEFORE the Wrath of God, I do not mean that the Church will not see any of the trouble that Jesus fore-warned us about!   Rather, I believe that I prove that the Scriptures simply shows that the Church is taken FROM the Earth when the Wrath of God begins.    I believe this is something that the Bible states over and over as seen in:

…wait for His Son from heaven, whom He raised from the dead, that is Jesus, who rescues us from the wrath to come
– 1 Thessalonians 1:10

or

Because you have kept the word of My perseverance, I also will keep you from the hour of testing, that hour which is about to come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth
– Revelation 3:10

And again, we should remind ourselves that Jesus said:

And He will send forth His angels with A GREAT TRUMPET and THEY WILL GATHER TOGETHER His elect from the four winds, from one end of the sky to the other.
– Matthew 24:31 …

at which time:

… there will be two men in the field; one will be taken and one will be left. 41 Two women will be grinding at the mill; one will be taken and one will be left.
– Matthew 24:40,41

Again … one will be taken in the Rapture, and one will be left behind!

.

The next chapters in Revelation  go on to show how terrible time on Earth will be for people, as God’s Wrath is poured upon the Earth.

.

Included in this population on the Earth are “saints“,   because some of the lukewarm, foolish virgins/church people who were left behind will now cry out to God and become true Believers.

.

Sadly, they waited until this time period to give their lives over to the Lordship of Jesus Christ and obedience to His Word.   And sadly, they will have to suffer … along with the Jews … for their disobedience.

.

 

A Resurrection is shown in
Revelation 11

.

We see in Revelation 11 that God’s 2 witnesses / prophets will be killed and resurrected here, BEFORE the ‘first resurrection’ of Revelation 20:5.    Hey, wait!!  … this means that there really is a resurrection mentioned  before the resurrection of Revelation 20:5 … and I think this is pretty strong evidence that the Revelation 20 “first resurrection” is not what some think and that God uses terms in a way that may be hidden and mysterious to some.

.

For we see in Revelation 11 that not only is there a resurrection which does not include all Saints, but Revelation 11 also teaches of yet another Rapture which does not include the Church:

11 But after the three and a half days, the breath of life from God came into them (resurrection), and they stood on their feet; and great fear fell upon those who were watching them. 12 And they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, “Come up here.” Then they went up into heaven in the cloud, and their enemies watched them (rapture).

.
.

And what about the 7th Trumpet
in Revelation 11

Here is another use of wording by God which has some people confused, for some think that because the Apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians 15, along with Jesus in Matthew 24, teach that at the sound of a trumpet the Church will be Raptured,  that this 7th and final trumpet of Judgement shown in Revelation 11 must be the same trumpet that proclaims the Rapture of the Church.

.

They are wrong in thinking this since both Jesus in Matthew 24:15, and the Apostle Paul in 2 Thessalonians 2:3, show that the point in time in which the Church will be Raptured  is immediately after the revealing of the Anti-Christ!!

.

But will it be the Church only who will have understanding that this is THE man of whom the Church has been warned about?    Perhaps,  for Matthew 24 reads:

15“Therefore when you see the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION which was spoken of through Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place  (let the reader understand) ...

.

And so, quite probably, the world and the lukewarm church will continue along in ignorance, the True Church will then be Raptured, and then the Wrath of God will begin to be poured upon all who remain.

.

Think also on this:
If this Revelation 11:15 trumpet was THE trumpet to call up the Church, then why wouldn’t John see this, in his very detailed description of the End Days events?

.

I repeat that this is therefore not the same Trumpet that calls up the Rapture Ready Church.

.

Revelation 12 — the Over-view

Revelation 12 then goes on to tell an over-view of the History of the fight between Jesus and satan, and between satan and God’s people, before going onward to detail the completion of the Wrath of God and the power that satan will be given over the saints on the earth.

.

Chapter 12 is where the Mark of the Beast occurs, and so I would warn anyone reading this Post … should it still be found on-line at that time … PLEASE DO NOT TAKE THE MARK OF THE BEAST, even as an angel will warn at that time:

9 Then another angel, a third one, followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives a mark on his forehead or on his hand, 10 he also will drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is mixed in full strength in the cup of His anger; and he will be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. 11  “And the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever; they have no rest day and night, those who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.” 12 Here is the perseverance of the saints who keep the commandments of God and their faith in Jesus.
– Revelation 14

Another Resurrection in Revelation 14?

.

We saw that the 2 witnesses / prophets were resurrected and raptured in Revelation 11, and now in Revelation 14 we see that the 144,000 Jews … who were sealed and Born Again in Revelation 7 … are now with Christ Jesus.
.
What happened? Were they raptured? Were they martyred and then resurrected? It is not clear, but I believe either could be possible … especially since we have already seen God resurrect and rapture the 2 witnesses in Revelation 11.

.

The Marriage Supper of the Lamb
Revelation 19

.

The Marriage Supper of the Lamb in Revelation 19 then goes on to show us again that  there is a large multitude of saints already in Heaven before the Revelation 20:5 “first resurrection” and it is this multitude that gets to partake in the  Marriage Supper of the Lamb.

.

Question to my Commenter … or anyone else who holds a post-tribulation Rapture belief:
Who would be at this Marriage Supper of the Lamb,
if the Church was not already Raptured and Resurrected?

.

And then after this Supper, Revelation tells us that it is then time for Christ and His Holy Ones to fight the final fight on the Earth.

.

 Question to post-tribulation rapture believers:
Who is the army that Christ returns with, if no-one is Raptured or Resurrected yet?
.
 
Finally, we arrive at Revelation 20 … the Chapter in which my Commenter alludes to, which reads:
4 Then I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was given to them. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony of Jesus and because of the word of God, and those who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received the mark on their forehead and on their hand; and they came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. 5 The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were completed. This is the first resurrection. 6 Blessed and holy is the one who has a part in the first resurrection; over these the second death has no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with Him for a thousand years.

What could this “first resurrection” really be, since I believe I have shown in this Post that the True Church was already Raptured and resurrected, even as taught in 1 Corinthians 15?

.

I believe that this could be the resurrection of the saints who died during the time of the Wrath of God, which occurs between Revelation 7 to Revelation 20.    Revelation 20 also shows us that satan is finally bound (Revelation 20:1-3), and so we can see that God is starting a new era in His time-table.

.

In my studies, when comparing all the Scriptures which talk about the Rapture … and not just taking one verse like Revelation 20:5 all by itself and making a doctrine out of it … I believe that I can see this Revelation 20:5 verse being the “first resurrection” of the new era in which satan is bound.

.

These saints, who went through the Wrath of God time-period,  are now raised to life and will reign on Earth with Christ for 1,000 years … along with the Old Testament Saints and the True Church, all of whom were Resurrected and Raptured before the Wrath of God was poured upon the Earth.

.

Hallelujah.  A new era, wherein righteousness will dwell!!

.

People will still have the free-will and ability to disobey and rebel against Christ when He rules on Earth (see Revelation 20:7-10 for just one example!) and so the time of Judgment shown in Revelation 20:11-14 could be the time for judgment of the Millennial people, who lived and/or died during the Millennial Age…the true “Millennials” 🙂

.

Whatever the Truth really is about all of this, remains to be fully revealed by the Lord in His time … I will not be so arrogant as to say that I know all of this completely and fully … but I am quite confident that I have taken the time to prove that there is a difference between the gathering of unbelievers to be cast into Hell VS the gathering of unbelievers AND lukewarm, foolish Christians who will be Left Behind to endure the Wrath of God (again, you can read about this further on  my Post HERE), and I believe I have laid out the Scriptures clearly enough times on this Blog to show that God Raptures Christ’s True Bride BEFORE God starts pouring out His Wrath (read one of my Posts HERE to show some Scriptures and a time-line which supports that statement).

.

Whatever your final thoughts and beliefs are, let’s firstly remind ourselves, and each other, to keep looking for the Glorious Appearing of our Lord and Savior, and let us remember to keep ourselves pure for His Return.
And everyone who has this hope fixed on Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.
– 1 John 3:3
The Spirit and the bride say, “Come.” And let the one who hears say, “Come.” And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who wishes take the water of life without cost.
– Revelation 20:17

This morning while meditating on the things of the Lord, the thought came to me:

As long as it is day, we must do the work of him who sent me. Night is coming, when no one can workJohn 9:4

credit: scarieimageproductions.com

I started thinking about the darkness that is coming.  Yes, there is great darkness right now with deceivers growing more bold and more numerous, and with sinners living their ungodly lifestyles in a more bold, blatant, and arrogant way than recently seen, but there is a greater darkness coming.  A darkness so thick and so wicked, that many will be silenced for fear of loosing their very lives.

9- “Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. 10- At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, 11- and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. 12- Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold Matthew 24

What started my thought process was the commenter, named The Good Tale, on my last Post,  “Signs of The End of The Age: Are They Happening Even Quicker Now?”

The commenter holds to and teaches heresies while believing she is the woman who is spoken about in Revelation 12.  I skimmed through her Blog after her first comment, and saw that she tears apart the Holy Trinity along with proclaiming other heresies.  (For Scriptures showing that all 3 Persons of the Trinity are indeed unique, individual, yet equally God, see my Post HERE.)

Sure, the comment was simply more evidence that more and more false teachers/false teachings surround us … her timing could even be considered funny as it followed Onesimus’ comment about false teachers/teachings; funny if it didn’t mean she will experience eternal damnation …  but somehow this commenter was a last straw for me, lighting off the thought that truly the time is shorter today than even yesterday for Believers to be able to vocally … without fear of being put to death in any way … proclaim the Truth.  We can see that time is much shorter today than yesterday, as the Signs build up all around us!

My thoughts then rabbit-trailed off to a very dear friend who went off to Bible School in the late ’80s, only to be seduced by a homosexual there in the school, and so is now living in an open homosexual lifestyle.  I thought about how I have been witnessing to my friend, or rather, have not been strongly enough witnessing to my friend.  After all, my friend knew the Truth, and therefore knows the Truth, and so I’ve simply been trying to keep a friendship alive so that we can continue our small dialogues about the Lord and His righteous requirements.

But if I knew that later tonight a Law would be proclaimed that anyone who proclaimed the Name of Jesus as God and Savior and the Lord Who is to be obeyed, would be put to death, would I give one last strong witness to this friend?  Would I plead with tears in my eyes for my friend to repent and be saved from the Wrath of God that is soon to be unleashed upon the Earth, knowing that it could be the last time that I may have the opportunity to warn!? If I knew a Law was being passed tonight would I make one last phone call and boldly, with “no holds barred“, witness and proclaim ALL the Truth without holding back, in the hopes that my friend could be granted repentance?  And if I think my love is that great for this one particular friend that I would do such, then why-oh-why have I not been doing such already!?  Right now, while it is still “daylight” and there is every opportunity offered to me to speak boldly without fear of loosing my life!

I have been gullible and listened to preachers state that “friendship evangelism” is a worthy way to evangelize.  After all, if we speak too strongly to friends they won’t remain our friends any longer and then we won’t have the opportunity to continue to witness to them.   !!! Such must be a diabolical lie from the pit of Hell, I now say !!!  For which is better:  to hold the full Truth quietly within ourselves in the hopes of keeping a friendship alive with a Hell-bound sinner or to boldly remind them of all the Truth of God in the hopes that they will be saved sooner rather than later?

I am saddened that I have been suckered into this mind-set.  And I am sad that my flesh has won the battle so that I can sit too quietly before people I know, without trying to save them from the flames of Hell.

And so this Post is written mostly for myself, but also for anyone else who will read and think about these words, for I am convicted that I must start to unashamedly and fearlessly start to tell every single person I know that The End is closer today than yesterday.  And of course their end, as well as The End, is closer today, for which one of us knows exactly when we will die and stand before the Judgment Seat of God.

For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive what is due him for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad. – 2 Corinthians 5:10

The time is shorter today.  The End is closer today.  The night is coming when no man can work.  And today I need to boldly proclaim ALL of the Truth of the Lord … without “kindly” or “politely” holding any part back any longer.

Those who repent and make it to Eternity with God will thank me when we are all gathered together with Christ!

GEBAL is now known as the region of LEBANON.     Lebanon has long been known for its unrest, with Hezbollah usually at the front of the turmoil, and we know that Hezbollah would love to erase Israel from the face of the Earth if given the chance.

But is Lebanon mentioned in the Bible as part of the Arab Nations who come against Israel in the great End Times war?  Yes it is.  You can read my newest article HERE which tells of Lebanon’s place in Bible Prophecy and its position against Israel.

MOAB is the descendant of Lot who bore Moab through his eldest daughter (Genesis 19:36,37) and Moab is a part of current day JORDAN, East of the Dead Sea.  

The City of PETRA is located in Southern Jordan … a city thought to be the place that the Jewish Believers will escape to during the Great Tribulation, even as Jesus states in Luke 21Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains …” and as Revelation 12:6 prophecies: “The woman fled into the desert to a place prepared for her by God, where she might be taken care of for 1,260 days.

But is Jordan mentioned anywhere else in the Bible regarding the End Times and its relation with Israel?

The answer is YES and you can read my article HERE to learn of Jordan’s role in the coming Arab War against Israel, which was been predicted in the Psalms! It is interesting to note how the End Times Nations in this Psalm are currently experiencing revolutions…very interesting indeed!
