Israel’s blessing.

Here is what is going to happen after the rapture of the bride concerning Israel.

The bride of Christ, Every believer in Christ will be removed from the earth in an instant. This begins the tribulation

Islam will rule by default. The beast and the NWO will rise. BUT, God will protect ISRAEL via a peace treaty with the beast.
Two prophets, some say Enoch and Elijah , will return and preach on the streets of Jerusalem for 1260 days. Millions will be saved, and killed for their testimony.
The two prophets will have the powers of Moses, able to call fire down from heaven and send droughts and plagues on their enemies. During this time, no man can kill them.
After 1260 days their ministry ends, and they are killed, and they are called up to heaven “come up hither” , and all other dead believers killed since the beginning of the tribulation will also rise with them.
A great earthquake follows, at this time, the antichrist will amass an army and overrun Israel. The remnant will flee to Petra (theres already an agreement with Jordan to use Petra as a city of refuge)

For 1260 MORE days they will wait there for their redeemer.

The 144k chosen will preach the gospel across the world. Billions will be saved and killed for their faith in Christ.

During this time alsl, Jesus pours out his wrath on an unbelieving world, while Israel, again, the apple of Gods eye is protected.
At the end of this 1260 days, the Lord will return, and destroy the antichrist and his armies at armegeddon.

After the battle is won, he will rescue the remnant from Petra, and lead them back across the Jordan river into their land , never to be removed again.
Has God forgotten Israel? Not hardly.

Jesus treads the winepress alone. His second coming.

Actually, Jesus returns ALONE. He trods the winepress alone. He destroys the beast at armegeddon. Then returns to heaven, opens the doors and brings his saints with him. With many crowns on his head and His vesture dipped in blood from his victory at armegeddon. The saints killed after the last reaping up to armegeddon are raised to life at his return.

ISA 26:20 Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.

Isa 63:3 I have trodden the winepress alone; and of the people there was none with me: for I will tread them in mine anger, and trample them in my fury; and their blood shall be sprinkled upon my garments, and I will stain all my raiment.

Rev 14:19 And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God. And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.”

Rev 19 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.

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.

Rev 1:5-6 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,

6 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

 

And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;

10 And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.
Rev 5:9-10 ( pre trib harvest of the saints)

Rev 7:9-10 After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands. 10 And they cried out in a loud voice:

“Salvation belongs to our God,
who sits on the throne,
and to the Lamb.” (mid trib harvest of the saints)
Rev 14:16
And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped. (Harvest of the post trib saints)
Rev 20:4-6 (the gleanings, those that died in the interim up to Jesus return)
And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.

6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.

 

 

The catalyst that begins the tribulation.

If one can imagine a world with no Christians all of a sudden, it would mean most of America would be gone. 2 billion people all over the world, gone. Our military- most of it gone. Our farmers- most all gone. Cops, prison guards, paramedics, doctors, nurses, our LEADERS,- GONE.

Now imagine the empty houses, empty cars, unplanted and unharvested fields, and the bills and debts we’d all leave behind. Its not hard to see food shortages, financial collapse of banks and the federal reserve. Muslim dominated countries, China,  (the dragon), North Korea and many other atheist nations would barely notice the absence of the Christians. The global balance of power will change in an instant.

In the blink of an eye, Islam will be the dominant religion by default. With 2 billion followers. Worldwide Jihad will follow.

America will turn into a third world country overnight.

The UN would gladly step in, confiscate guns, and declare martial law. New leaders would be appointed to replace those believers that went in the pre trib rapture.

 

The NWO UN would take over America without a shot being fired.

There won’t be a believer on the planet for a time.

This world will not be a good place for a believer in Christ then, but even so, folks will believe, and the two prophets preaching in Israel and the 144k after them will begin a worldwide revival.

The pre trib catching away is actually the catalyst that begins the tribulation. Now, other saints will come to the faith after the bride is taken out. No doubt, I can imagine millions and millions of muslims and Jews being saved and killed for their faith in Christ. We are not going to be here to witness that. We will be at a party in heaven. The marriage supper of the Lamb. (See my other posts for more details)”Therefore, comfort one another with these words”

Another explanation:

The Jewish harvest;

The first fruits were at Jesus resurrection and the main harvest is from 1 thess 4:13-17 to rev 14:16, the last reaping And the gleanings are in rev 20:4-6.
The first resurrection is a harvest over a period of time, 2000 years, the reaping several harvests from from the cross to the return of the Lord. Thats the only way you can explain all those graves being opened, the dead in Christ rising first, the earth being reaped , and the dead rising in rev 20:4-6

The harvests INCLUDE a pre trib, mid trib, and end trib harvest of saints, with the ones killed after the last reaping (the gleanings) raised to life in rev 20:4-6.

 

Supporting scriptures (not all inclusive, you may find there are others)

Matt 27:50-53 And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit.

51 At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook, the rocks split 52 and the tombs broke open. The bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. 53 They came out of the tombs after Jesus’ resurrection and[e] went into the holy city and appeared to many people

1 thess 4:16 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:

Rev 7:14And 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.

ev 11And after three days and an half the spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.

Rev 14:16 And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped.

Rev 20:4-6 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

 

The resurrection of Jesus in the Old Testament.

IS 26:19. Thy dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead.

Fulfilled in matthew 27:52-53. And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent;

52 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,

53 And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.

Key word: “together with my dead body they shall rise”

Post trib? Mid trib? Pre trib?

What if I told you all three are true?

Thought for the day: just my opinion.

People get the harvests of the first resurrection and Jesus final return confused. Theres the firstfruits. Matt 27:52-53. , the main harvest, 1 thess 4:13-17 , then olives -mid trib saints, (rev 7) then the gleanings, the post tribulation saints ,rev 20:4-6. This is the first resurrection.

“Blessed and holy are that have part in the first resurrection, for they shall be kings and priests unto God, and shall reign with him on the earth.” (Rev 5:9-10, rev 20:4-6)

Jesus returns and sets up his kingdom at the end of the harvest.

What I am saying is that pre trib , (1 thess 4:13-17) mid trib (rev 7), and finally post trib rapture “and the earth was reaped” do not contradict. All three can be true.

Folks are too dogmatic , narrowminded and have presuppositional biases that prevent them from just letting the Bible say what it says.

Scofield didnt teach that. You heard it here first.

Youve got dead people rising in several places in the Bible. Matt 27:52-53 “and the graves were opened” then Paul tells us “the dead in Christ shall rise first” , then theres a great assembly in heaven in rev chapter 5:9-10, then the tribulation begins in chapter 6, then at the 3.5 year mark, the two prophets are killed come back to life and rise ANOTHER great congregation joins the first “these came out of great tribulation” , and finally , rev 20:4-6 after Jesus return, speaks of trib martyrs “and they lived again” and reigned with him 1000 years.

I can easily place a pre trib, mid trib, and post trib rapture-all three, within that dichotomy.

Now imagine how fast the world would change overnight if all the Christians vanished?

A billion muslims left behind with all those atheists and unbelievers.  Farmers in America-gone. Doctors, nurses, paramedics, policemen, prison gaurds, – gone.  Our military- most of it gone. All those un paid bills and mortgages left behind  banks collapse, food shortages, islam declares jihad worldwide.

 

It is not hard to see the tribulation beginning in the Chaos, economic ruin, famines, and religious persecution follow.

Even in all this tribulation, people will still come to the Lord for salvation, Right up to the end.

On the Lord’s supper and baptism.

Many sects out there today are going around setting up a false dilemma concerning grace and baptism. (As if its one or the other “works vs grace”) “dry cleaners” The two are totally compatible with one another.

By their standards, I am an all wet, wine bibbing , overeating Christian.   I believe in water baptism, not for salvation, but because the Lord SAYS TO. And I believe in Communion, because the Lord SAYS TO. Simple.

These same sects will also speak against the Lords Supper as “not for us today”, as if we are not supposed to do it. They are just as legalistic about NOT baptising or observing the Lord’s supper as those they accuse for doing it.  They are just as dogmatic about not baptising and not having communion as the ones they accuse. “Kettle, meet pot”.

The Lord says to baptise, so why forbid baptism? The Lord says to remember his death at communion til he comes “as oft as ye do it” (think about it as being akin to visiting the grave of a loved one, but Jesus grave is empty-he’s alive, but I digress).

So why forbid the Lord’s supper? Why condemn others for their convictions?.

Jesus says “if you love me, keep my commandments” this was not in a salvific sense, but in regards to his commands and ordinances for the church.

What will Jesus find his church doing when he comes for her?

The gambler.

This post is a response to a a believer in pantheism, specifically the false god of pharoah, Isis. Ancient god of Eypt. She is found on the Eucharist today “ISIS, HORUS, SORUS.  ” I ” ” H” “S” overlaid letters on the eucharist.

In other false religions she is called Astoreth, Ashtar, Asanah, Allat, (a daughter of allah), Diana, queen of heaven, Semiramis and many other variants.)

Much like the baal priests in 1 Kings 18, he claimed his false god has all power. He denied Jesus exists, with no evidence to support the existence of his false god.

I responded:
Jesus is the most verifiable, confirmed man that ever walked the planet. He is the most celebrated, most sang about, most worshipped man alive. More songs have been written about Jesus than all other people combined. His resurrection is remembered every Sunday, and has been for the last 2000 years. He made the lame walk, the blind see , and the demons call him Lord. And you don’t need a Bible to confirm his existance, or his resurrection from the dead. He proved his power, and his love for all men. And he promises all that believe in him that they too will rise from the dead one day. INCLUDING YOU. Your false god has given you none of this. Do you gamble much?
