WHY TERRIBLE THINGS HAPPEN


WHY TERRIBLE THINGS ARE HAPPENING

People will ask, if there is a God, why would He allow these terrible things to happen? The answer is God gave us the gift of free will. So why is the happening?  We need to look at our government and how they have forced God out of every aspect of life in America. God is no longer welcomed in government, public schools, in public parks, and if you believe in God, they will try and force you to bow to their anti-God will or punish you with jail, fines, or even put you out of business. And that is why God’s blessings are leaving this country and these are only a few of the examples why.

Abortion: God told us that by taking an innocent life you will be cursed.

Keep yourself far from a false matter; do not kill the
innocent and righteous. For I will not justify the wicked.

EXODUS 23:7
 
25 ‘Cursed is the one who takes a bribe to slay an
innocent person.’ “And all the people shall say, ‘Amen!’

DEUTERONOMY 27:25

We have raised generations who believe killing their unborn child is acceptable if that child would interfere with their life style. And through abortion we in this world have killed or murdered 54 million children.

13 “You shall not murder.

   EXODUS 20:13   

So now we have generations who have no respect for human life. They cared more over a lion being shot, than Planned Parenthood selling aborted baby parts. God knows the mind and hearts of mankind. Children are a heritage and reward from God for our future and now we wonder why things are becoming so terrible since we have allowed 54 million children to be aborted in this world.

Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord,
The fruit of the womb is a reward.

PSALM 127:3

God also made it quite clear in His word on where He stands on homosexuality. He made Sodom and Gomorrah an example for generations to come of His judgments. God goes as far as calling it an abomination.

22 You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination.

LEVITICUS 18:22

and turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes,
condemned them to destruction, making them an example
to those who afterward would live ungodly;

2 PETER 2:6

as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities around them in a similar
manner to these, having given themselves over to sexual immorality
and gone after strange flesh, are set forth as an example,
suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.

JUDE 7

Because they rejected God and His word, He will allow them to go blindly down their destructive path.

40 “He has blinded their eyes and hardened their hearts,
Lest they should see with their eyes,
Lest they should understand with their hearts and turn,
So that I should heal them.”

JOHN 12:40    

26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women
exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27 Likewise also the men,
leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another,
men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves
the penalty of their error which was due. 28 And even as they did not like to
retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind,
to do those things which are not fitting;

ROMANS 1:26-28

Once again our government took a stand against God and His people. Our government is promoting homosexuality and transgender life styles starting with kindergarten. The government knows if you want to control the minds of the people you must first train the children to your way of thinking. This they have done through our schools and universities. God warned us to train our children, but too many have handed training of their children over to someone else.

Train up a child in the way he should go,
And when he is old he will not depart from it.

PROVERBS 22:6

Without God’s blessings we will see stronger storms, our economy failing, or He will even allow our enemy to come in to destroy a sinful nation. God does this as a warning, but if our nation will repent of our sins, He also said He will heal our nation.

if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves,
and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways,
then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.
 
2 CHRONICLES 7:14

You will be punished by the Lord of hosts
With thunder and earthquake and great noise,
With storm and tempest
And the flame of devouring fire.

ISAIAH 29:6

19 Behold, a whirlwind of the Lord has gone forth in fury—
A violent whirlwind!
It will fall violently on the head of the wicked.

JEREMIAH 23:19

The liberal democrats and some republicans are doing their best to divide our country, by race, economics, and gender. The liberal democrats would rather destroy this country if they can not bring in their Godless nation. They want to control Americans body, soul, and mind.

17 But He, knowing their thoughts, said to them:
“Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation,
and a house divided against a house falls.

LUKE 11:17   

We can see that many people see the government as their savior, with all the so called free stuff the government hands out. Free rent, free food, free medical and free phones. The problem here is many that are working can not afford the luxuries the government hands out to those who won’t work. God said if you will not work, neither will you eat. God requires you work and earn and eat your own bread, not to take from some one else’s labor. God requires man to work, He tells us six day you shall labor and work.

Six days you shall labor and do all your work,

EXODUS 20:9   

10 For even when we were with you, we commanded you this:
If anyone will not work, neither shall he eat. 11 For we hear that there
are some who walk among you in a disorderly manner,
not working at all, but are busybodies.

2 THESSALONIANS 3:10-11    

We can see their goal is to cut God out of America and to silence all Christians. They want you to depend on them for all your needs, not God. Like Canada, they want God’s word labeled as hate speech and anyone quoting God’s word charged with a hate crime.

In Canada 83 of Ontario’s 107 MPPs passed Bill 89 unanimously, it stops Christians from adopting or fostering children because of their beliefs on marriage. Now if you mention the name of Jesus other than cursing, they look at you with hatred in their hearts. We can no longer keep silent.

22 And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake.
But he who endures to the end will be saved.

MATTHEW 10:22   

18 “If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you.
19 If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not
of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.

JOHN 15:18-19

God warned us that in the last days all this would happen. That all God calls good they will call evil, and all that God calls evil, they now call good.

20 Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;
Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

ISAIAH 5:20   

Perilous Times and Perilous Men
But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come:
For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud,
blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving,
unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good,
traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God,
having a form of godliness but denying its power.
And from such people turn away!

2 TIMOTHY 3:1-5

As Christians we must stand on God’s word and His commandments first and foremost. We follow man’s law as long as they don’t go against God’s. We are joined to God through Jesus Christ, who has given us God’s Holy Spirit as our guarantee we are His. He lives in us and nothing can separate us from Him.

27 My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.
28 And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish;
neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. 29 My Father,
who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to
snatch them out of My Father’s hand. 30 I and My Father are one.”

JOHN 10:27-30   

21 Now He who establishes us with you in Christ
and has anointed us is God, 22 who also has sealed us
and given us the Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee.

2 CORINTHIANS 1:21-22   

Our mandate from God is to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ. You can believe it or not, the choice is yours. But know this; no one including the government will keep us silent.

And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world
as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.
 
MATTHEW 24:14

15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel
to every creature. 16 He who believes and is baptized will be saved;
but he who does not believe will be condemned.

MARK 16:15-16   

Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name
under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”
 
ACTS 4:12

We must fight the good fight and finish the race by keeping the faith and confessing Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.

12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life,
to which you were also called and have confessed
the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.

1 TIMOTHY 6:12 

I have fought the good fight,
I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.

2 TIMOTHY 4:7 

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.
No one comes to the Father except through Me.

JOHN 14:6

We (Christians) were not put here to judge the world. Jesus Christ will do that. We are to show the world the love of Christ, and that through Him one comes to repentance and receives the forgiveness of sin.

The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness,
but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish
but that all should come to repentance.

2 PETER 3:9  

[ Preach the Word ] I charge you therefore before God
and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead
at His appearing and His kingdom:
 
2 TIMOTHY 4:1

If we are truly living in the last days, we should expect things to get even more terrifying. Jesus warned us that these are all signs of the beginning of sorrows and His soon appearing to rapture His church of believers.
 
8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
 
MATTHEW 24:8

28 Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up
your heads, because your redemption draws near.”

LUKE 21:28    

13 looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing
of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ,

TITUS 2:13

MISSING HIM


LEFT ALONE

Now each day I watch the sky
And ask you Father tell me why

The words came right from Your Son
He said the two shall become one

Now I’m here all alone
Waiting for You to call me home

You said keep watch so that’s what I do
I’ll watch the skies till I see You

You made a promise You’d come for us all
Please Dear Father let Jesus call

This broken heart that only You can mend
I’m praying that Jesus You’ll send

With the voice of an archangel He’ll call us home
Then not one of Your children will be left here alone
 
September 18, 2017

and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother
and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’?

MATTHEW 19:5

42 Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming.

MATTHEW 24:42

16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout,
with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God.
And the dead in Christ will rise first.

1 THESSALONIANS 4:16

My Love's Gone To Heaven


COME

I don’t belong here anymore
Father open heaven’s door

The time has come the signs are here
I feel you Jesus oh so near

Warren’s there he’s gone with You
You know my heart has broken in two

Send Jesus soon don’t hesitate
For only you know the date

My love’s not gone You hold him tight
But I pray You’ll come with all my might

To see his face and hold his hand
I watch the sky and listen for Your command
August 31, 2017

16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout,
with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God.
And the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive and remain
shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air.
And thus we shall always be with the Lord.

THE LAST DAYS, PERILOUS TIMES, PERILOUS MEN

A GLIMPSE OF A WORLD WITHOUT GOD

2 Timothy 3:1-5    
Perilous Times and Perilous Men
But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

Without God there is no respect or love for anyone, but one’s self. They will pour out their hatred on anyone who disagrees with or will not give them what they want. We saw this in the last presidential race. We watch as the democrat running for president lied and got caught in her lies and then tried to blame everyone else for her losing, not because she lied to the American people and their families about Benghazi and then lied to Congress proving she could not be trusted. Today she is still blaming everyone else she can. The republicans were not much better. They promise to support their nominee, but when it was not one of their good old boys, they turn on America’s choice for president. The celebrities could not wait to start pouring their vile hatred out on America’s elected President Trump. And when they are called out on their vile hatred, they blame President Trump for their troubles. If they are going to dish it out, they better be ready to take the consequences for their actions. We the people have spoken. They can’t stand that main stream America supports President Trump over them and their vile hatred.

For them it’s not about making America great again. It is about their global alliances and their love of power, money, and themselves. With their unholy alliance to their special interest groups, they would sacrifice or destroy anyone or anything, including America itself to serve themselves and their agenda.

Because of these things the wrath of God 
is coming upon the sons of disobedience,


No time in history have we ever seen such vile hatred and disrespect for the office of president and a sitting President. The democrats, the media, and celebrities are doing just what God said they would do. They have taken what was good and called it evil, and what was evil, they call good. While president Obama lied to the American people, and Hillary Clinton continues to lie to the American people, the democrats and the liberal media blindly continued to support and follow them and their lies, and then they wonder why the American people can’t trust them. They are not truth seekers, but blindly follow.

Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;
Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!


Let them alone. They are blind leaders of the blind.
And if the blind leads the blind, both will fall into a ditch.”


But evil men and impostors will grow worse
and worse, deceiving and being deceived.


unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good,

As the election has past, we can see clearly how unloving, how brutal they can be. With out any self-control they can so easily slandered and try to destroy anyone who disagrees with their liberal democratic agenda. It is unfortunate for America that they have all their talk show hosts and the main stream media helping them pour out their vile hatred. As for their president Obama they had nothing but praise for his global socialist agenda. And they wonder why Americans voted for Donald Trump.

They are all stubborn rebels, walking as slanderers. 
They are bronze and iron, They are all corrupters;


But these speak evil of whatever they do not know;
and whatever they know naturally, like brute beasts,
in these things they corrupt themselves.


traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 

For those who remember the democratic convention for president Obama, where they voted to remove God Almighty from their party. That should have told Americans a lot about who the Democratic Party serves. They are headstrong traitors of God and Country. They will not give up their pleasures as government employees to serve Americans or God. And their anti-God agenda they have promoted in the Public School system and our Universities teaching them to be good little socialist and not to debate or question their agenda, don’t even listen to them. The liberal universities have taught them to yell and scream to drown out any other thought but theirs, or to just not let them come in. They know that if you control the youth, you can control the future.

Train up a child in the way he should go,
And when he is old he will not depart from it.


A proud and haughty man— “Scoffer” is his name;
He acts with arrogant pride.


For those who are such do not serve our Lord Jesus Christ,
but their own belly, and by smooth words and
flattering speech deceive the hearts of the simple.


These false leader and teachers are deceiving and being deceived, leading the people astray, away from God and His word, because God stands against everything evil thing they promote. They have even made laws to stand against God and his people.

having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!

These people in power will tell you that all the supposed good works they claim to be doing are for your own good, but know it is for their own good, so they can control every aspect of your life. They, the government doesn’t just want to replace God, they want to be god.

They profess to know God, but in works they deny Him,
being abominable, disobedient, and disqualified for every good work.

TITUS 1:16

Only through Jesus Christ can one truly be free and know the truth. The government rejects God, because He tells us we are free to follow Him and His word. This is a spiritual battle between the Satan’s children and God’s children. You decide which side you want to follow, but know the government is doing all it can to take that choice away from you.

Therefore if the Son makes you free,
you shall be free indeed.

JOHN 8:36

Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life,
No one comes to the Father except through Me.

JOHN 14:6 

[ The Imperative of Love ] In this the children of God and
the children of the devil are manifest: Whoever does not practice
righteousness is not of God, nor is he who does not love his brother.


The politicians, the media, and celebrities are doing all they can to deceive the American people to their way a thinking. They mocked God and Christians; they twist and spin the truth till there is no truth left, all just to serve their liberal global agenda.

Do not be deceived, God is not mocked;
for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.


Let no one deceive you with empty words,
for because of these things the wrath of God
comes upon the sons of disobedience.


Now this I say lest anyone should 
deceive you with persuasive words.


So the great dragon was cast out,
that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan,
who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth,
and his angels were cast out with him.



No matter how vile these so called entertainers and liberal media become, they are not taken off the air, because they serve Satan, the prince of the air, and the father of liars. They may not literally murder anyone, but they will try to destroy them with their words.

You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father
you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand
in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie,
he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.


The kings of the earth took their stand, And the rulers were
gathered together Against the Lord and against His Christ.’


in which you once walked according to the course of this world,
according to the prince of the power of the air,
the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience,


Only through Jesus Christ and the grace of God can their hearts be changed through repentance to see the truth and be saved from this sinful generation.

Likewise, I say to you, there is joy in the presence of the
angels of God over one sinner who repents."

LUKE 15:10

Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out,
so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord.

ACTS 3:19

Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked,
but now commands all men everywhere to repent.

ACTS 17:30

If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us 
our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.


If Jesus came today would He call you up to meet Him in the clouds or leave you behind?
Only Jesus can save you from God’s wrath that is coming. His is, are only hope.

and to wait for His Son from heaven, whom He raised from the
dead, even Jesus who delivers us from the wrath to come.

1 THESSALONIANS 1:10

16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout,
with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God.
And the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive
and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds
to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with
the Lord. 18 Therefore comfort one another with these words.

1 THESSALONIANS 4:16-18

looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing 
of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ,


Because you have kept My command to persevere,
I also will keep you from the hour of trial
which shall come upon the whole world,
to test those who dwell on the earth.

  
The choice is yours, God’s wrath and everlasting punishment or through Jesus Christ, eternal life with Him in heaven.

And these will go away into everlasting punishment,
but the righteous into eternal life."

MATTHEW 25:46

He who believes in the Son has everlasting life;
and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life,
but the wrath of God abides on him.”


The Way, the Truth, and the Life
14 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God,
believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; 
if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 
And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and
receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.

JOHN 14:1-3

The sad part is that many people will tell you they are a Christian, but with in minutes you can tell by their actions or words, they have no idea what a Christian is, what God requires from His children.

PART 2 FOR ISRAEL OR THE CHURCH

MATTHEW 24

WARNING  FOR  ISRAEL  OR  THE  CHURCH

12 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.

The people’s hearts grow cold towards God and His word, choosing to live their sinful self centered lives by rejecting Jesus as the true Messiah. We can see that our government has turned against Jesus along with the media and entertainment industry and many churches, and even God’s chosen people. Israel has gone the way of the world. Jesus tells the parable of the Fig Tree in Matthew 24:32-33 as an example and warning, that when they (Israel) sees these things happening, know that Jesus is the promised Messiah, and His return is near, that He is standing at the door.

All we like sheep have gone astray: We have turned, every one,
to his own way; And the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.

ISHIAH 53:6

For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this 
adulterous and sinful generation, of him the Son of Man 
also will be ashamed when He comes in the glory 
of His Father with the holy angels.”


Do not grumble against one another, brethren, lest you 
be condemned. Behold, the Judge is standing at the door!

JAMES 5:9

13 But he who endures to the end shall be saved. 14 And this 
gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a 
witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.

Only those who endure to the end will be saved.  Because of 
Israel’s rejection of Jesus, they must endure the tribulation and 
only a remnant will be saved.  We as Christians today are 
already saved by God’s grace through the blood of Jesus Christ. 
(the church will not face the tribulation)

And it shall come to pass That whoever calls on the name 
of the Lord Shall be savedFor in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem 
there shall be deliveranceAs the Lord has said, 
Among the remnant whom the Lord calls.


Isaiah also cries out concerning Israel: “Though the number 
of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, 
The remnant will be saved.

ROMANS 9:27

Israel, Jews and unbeliever must endure the tribulation, they are 
tested by God and only having knowledge of God’s word, will 
a remnant be saved for Israel’s sake.

10 For You, O God, have tested us; You have refined us as silver 
is refined11 You brought us into the net; You laid affliction on 
our backs. 12 You have caused men to ride over our heads; 
We went through fire and through water; But 
You brought us out to rich fulfillment.

PSALM 66:10-12

And it shall come to pass in all the land,” Says the Lord, 
That two-thirds in it shall be cut off and die, But one–third 
shall be left in itI will bring the one–third through the fire, Will 
refine them as silver is refined, And test them as gold is tested. 
They will call on My name, And I will answer them.
I will say, ‘This is My people’; And each one 
will say, ‘The Lord is my God.’”

ZECHARIAH 13:8-9

22 And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be 
saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened.

MATTHEW 24:22

But God will send His two witnesses to prophesy during the 
tribulation. God gives every chance for Israel and unbelievers 
to turn to their promised Messiah.

And I will give power to my two witnesses,
and they will prophesy one thousand two hundred
and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth.”

REVELATION 11:3

The Great Tribulation
15 “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place” (whoever reads, let him understand),

Here it speaks of a holy place, the temple, the Jewish temple. Once the temple is rebuilt, the Jews will offer animal’s blood for the atonement of sin.  But when they see the anti-christ standing in the temple, many will remember that it was told to them by the prophet Daniel and will not be deceived by him. This begins the last three and one half years of the tribulation when Satan makes an attempt to imitate God.

13 For you have said in your heart: ‘I will ascend into heaven,
I will exalt my throne above the stars of God;
I will also sit on the mount of the congregation
On the farthest sides of the north;
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds,
I will be like the Most High.’

ISAIAH 14:13-14

30 For ships from Cyprus shall come against him; therefore he shall be grieved, and return in rage against the holy covenant, and do damage  .“So he shall return and show regard for those who forsake the holy covenant. 31 And forces shall be mustered by him, and they shall defile the sanctuary fortress; then they shall take away the daily sacrifices, and place there the abomination of desolation. 32 Those who do wickedly against the covenant he shall corrupt with flattery; but the people who know their God shall be strongand carry out great exploits.

DANIEL 11:30-32

11 “And from the time that the daily sacrifice is taken away, 
and the abomination of desolation is set up, there shall be 
one thousand two hundred and ninety days.

DANIEL 12:11

who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God 
or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God
showing himself that he is God.

2 THESSALONIANS 2:4

For the Christian church there is no need for a daily sacrifice for sin, for Jesus paid that price for us once and for all.

who does not need daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifices,
first for His own sins and then for the people’s,
for this He did once for all when He offered up Himself.


In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness
of sins, according to the riches of His grace

EPHESIANS 1:7

But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have 
fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ 
His Son cleanses us from all sin.

1 JOHN 1:7

We (the church) are not looking or waiting to see the anti-christ appear, we are to keep watch, looking for Jesus to appear. We will not be here, as Christians, our temple is our body, not a 
building. Jesus Christ was our sacrifice, our blood atonement for sin once for all.

But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that 
while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Much more 
then, having now been justified by His blood, 
we shall be saved from wrath through Him.

ROMANS 5:8-9

16 Do you not know that you are the temple of God
and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?

1 CORINTHIANS 3:16

And what agreement has the temple of God with idols?
For you are the temple of the living God.
As God has said: “I will dwell in them And walk among them.
I will be their God, And they shall be My people.”


16 “then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.

Here Jesus is naming a place, Judea.  From there flee to the mountains.  First of all Christians from around the world would have to go to Judea, and then flee to the mountains.  Only those in Israel (the Jews) will be able to flee Judea, not Christians, we are no longer here. The rapture has already taken place.  God has prepare a place for the His chosen (Jews) in the wilderness where they will be safe.
Then the woman fled into the wilderness,
where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her
there one thousand two hundred and sixty days.

REVELATION 12:6

As Christians we don’t flee, we are to fight the good fight, and we are to wait for Jesus to appear.

20 For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also 
eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ,

PHILIPPIANS 3:20

10 and to wait for His Son from heaven, whom He raised from the 
dead, even Jesus who delivers us from the wrath to come.

1 THESSALONIANS 1:10

In 2 Timothy 4:7-8.  We are looking for His appearing, the rapture, not His return, for when He returns, we will be with Him.

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, 
I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the 
crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, 
will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also
to all who have loved His appearing.

2 TIMOTHY 4:7 – 8

17 Let him who is on the housetop not go down to take anything out of his house. 18 And let him who is in the field not go back to get his clothes. 19 But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! 20 And pray that your flight may not be in winter or on the Sabbath. 21 For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be.

Jesus warns not even to go to your homes. Only Israel has that ability to flee to the mountains.If Christians were still here, there would be no place for them to go.  Thank you Jesus, we are in heaven with You.

[ Prophecy of the End Time ] “At that time Michael shall 
stand up, The great prince who stands watch over the sons of 
your people; And there shall be a time of trouble, Such as 
never was since there was a nationEven to that time. 
And at that time your people shall be delivered
Every one who is found written in the book.


He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments,
and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life;
but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels.


17 And the dragon was enraged with the woman, 
and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, 
who keep the commandments of God 
and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

REVELATION 12:17

22 And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened.

It is only because of the Jews, the elect (Israel) God’s chosen, that those days are shorten and because of them there will be people who believe in Jesus that are saved coming through the tribulation. There are still those who go through the tribulation whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life.

10 Many shall be purified, made white, and refined, 
but the wicked shall do wickedly; and none of the wicked 
shall understand, but the wise shall understand.

DANIEL 12:10

Concerning the gospel they are enemies for your sake, 
but concerning the election they are beloved 
for the sake of the fathers.


23 “Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There!’ do not believe it. 24 For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. 25 See, I have told you beforehand.

This warning is for Israel. Only the Jews that know God’s word from the prophet Daniel’s warnings and other prophets will not be fooled by this false deception. For many Jews have left God’s traditions and law for the pleasures of this world.

The coming of the lawless one is according to the working 
of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, 10 and 
with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, 
because they did not receive the love of the truth, 
that they might be saved.

2 THESSALONIANS 2:9-10

26 “Therefore if they say to you, ‘Look, He is in the desert!’ do not go out; or ‘Look, He is in the inner rooms!’ do not believe it. 27 For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 28 For wherever the carcass is, there the eagles will be gathered together.

God word tells us how Jesus will return to earth. Those who receive Jesus during the tribulation will recognize that Jesus will soon return and He is coming to avenge His people and to make war with the anti-christ and all that followed him.

14 For they are spirits of demons, performing signs, 
which go out to the kings of the earth and of the whole world, 
to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. 
15 “Behold, I am coming as a thief. Blessed is he who watches, 
and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked and they see his 
shame.” 16 And they gathered them together to the 
place called in Hebrew, Armageddon.

REVELATION 16:14-16

[ Christ on a White Horse ] Now I saw heaven opened, and behold,
a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True,
and in righteousness He judges and makes war.


14 And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean,
followed Him on white horses.

REVELATION 19:14

The Beast and His Armies Defeated

17 Then I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with 
a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in the midst of 
heaven, “Come and gather together for the supper of the great 
God18 that you may eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of captains,
the flesh of mighty men, the flesh of horses and of those who sit 
on them, and the flesh of all people, free and slave, both small 
and great.” 19 And I saw the beast, the kings of the earth, 
and their armies, gathered together to make war against 
Him who sat on the horse and against His army.
20 Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet 
who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those 
who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his 
imageThese two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with 
brimstone. 21 And the rest were killed with the sword which 
proceeded from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse. 
And all the birds were filled with their flesh.

REVELATION 19:17-21
  
The Coming of the Son of Man
29 “Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 30 Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

Here Jesus tells of His return, and He’s coming for judgment and to make war. The people on the earth will mourn. The church is not here, for we joyfully waited for Jesus to appear. But those left behind will mourn, for Jesus will judge and cast away all those who are not His. His angels will gather from the four corners of the earth those who were left behind after the rapture. Then Jesus will separate His sheep from the goats, and He will gather the remnant sheep to Himself.

49 So it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come forth,
separate the wicked from among the just,

MATTHEW 13:49

32 All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will 
separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep 
from the goats. 33 And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but 
the goats on the left. 34 Then the King will say to those 
on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the 
kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

MATTHEW 25:32-34

Behold, He is coming with clouds, and every eye will see Him
even they who pierced Him. And all the tribes of the earth 
will mourn because of Him. Even so, Amen.

REVELATION 1:7

The church is not here, we were raptured, for the church did not mourn, but looked for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of Jesus, our Lord and Savior. The church loved His appearing.

Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness,
which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day,
and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing.

2 TIMOTHY 4:8

13 looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing
of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ,

TITUS 2:13

THE PRE-TRIBULATION RAPTURE

The rapture of the church, His bride, ( the saints) Jesus Himself catches His saints up to the clouds Himself. At the end of the tribulation, Jesus will send His angels to gather His elect (Israel) and those who believed in His name.

16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven 
with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the 
trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 
17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up 
together with them in the clouds to meet the 
Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.

1 THESSALONIANS 4:16-17

These are two separate events taking place in the last days, one with the church, and one with Israel and new believers. One in the beginning, and one at the end. God gives every opportunity to return to Him.

THE END TIME GATHERING

In the parable of the Tares and the Dragnet, Jesus tells of the end of the age, and that His angels are the reapers who separates the just from the unjust.

Parable of the tares
39 The enemy who sowed them is the devil, the harvest 
is the end of the age, and the reapers are the angels. 40 Therefore 
as the tares are gathered and burned in the fire, so it will be at the 
end of this age. 41 The Son of Man will send out His angels, 
and they will gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, 
and those who practice lawlessness, 42 and will cast them into 
the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing 
of teeth. 43 Then the righteous will shine forth as the sun 
in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears to hear, 
let him hear!

MATTHEW 13:39-43

Parable of the dragnet
49 So it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come forth, 
separate the wicked from among the just, 50 and cast them into 
the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth.”

MATTHEW 13:49-50

31 And He will send His angels with a great sound 
of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect 
from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

REVELATION 24:31

The prophet Daniel spoke of a holy people in the last days that comes through the tribulation.  The only ones in the bible called a holy people to the Lord is Israel, not the church. The church is referred to as the saints or the bride of Christ.

7  Then I heard the man clothed in linen, who was above the 
waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand 
to heaven, and swore by Him who lives forever, that it shall be 
for a time, times, and half a time; and when the power 
of the holy people has been completely shattered,
all these things shall be finished.


12 Blessed is he who waits, and comes to the
one thousand three hundred and thirty-five days.
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.”

DANIEL 12:12-13

God refers to Israel as His holy people, or His elect. Christians are referred to as the saints.

“For you are a holy people to the Lord your God;


For Jacob My servant’s sake, And Israel My elect,
I have even called you by your name;
I have named you, though you have not known Me.


To the church of God which is at Corinth, to those who are 
sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all 
who in every place call on the name of
Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours:


There are two different events. The first one, Jesus coming for His saints His bride before the tribulation. The second event, God dealing with His people Israel through the tribulation. The Jews that believed in Jesus have already become His saints. The ones that have not believed yet, God is still dealing with their hearts and will give them every opportunity in the tribulation to repent and come to Jesus their true Messiah.

22 And when He had removed him, He raised up for them
 David as king, to whom also He gave testimony and said, 
I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after My own heart, 
who will do all My will.’23 From this man’s seed,
according to the promise, God raised up for Israel a Savior—Jesus— 
24 after John had first preached, before His coming, 
the baptism of repentance to all the people of Israel.
