Two Events Finale

Thursday, September 21st, 2023

The Beloved Disciple records what he saw at the end of the seven year period where Jesus returns to the earth to defeat the kings of the earth!

John recorded what was given to him by Jesus Himself in Revelation chapter 19:

11  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.

12 His Eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His Head were many crowns. He had a Name written that no one knew except Himself.

13 He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His Name is called The Word of God.

Jesus came to the earth the first time in an expression of Agape Love as often quoted in John 3:16. This time, He comes in justice and judgment.  He comes with many crowns since they were given to Him by those who had been given crowns themselves but knew that Jesus deserved their crowns. (Revelation 4:10-11)

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

15 Now out of His Mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.

1] And He has on His robe and on His Thigh a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.

There is no question that Jesus Christ is returning to earth to rule and reign with a rod of iron.  Those who rejected Him will suffer righteous judgment.  Many want to make this passage an allegory rather than literal.  I choose to treat this as literal since FATHER included such descriptions at the culmination of HIS Integrated Message System.

In the final chapter, John faithfully records Jesus’ Words in Revelation 22:

7  “Behold, I am coming quickly! Blessed is he who keeps the Words of the prophecy of this Book.”

12 “And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work.

13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.”

14  Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of Life, and may enter through the gates into the city.

15 But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie.

16 “I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star.”

17 And the Spirit and the Bride say, “Come!” And let him who hears say, “Come!” And let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely.

20 He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming quickly.” Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!

The Spirit and The Bride are with Jesus and implore those who are willing to “Come”.  The Spirit and The Bride are with Jesus as He returns to earth.  The Bride has received her reward and is not among those earth dwellers who are judged.

Two Events: Part 10

Wednesday, September 20th, 2023

The Beloved Disciple notifies the churches of the second event in chapter 1 of The Revelation of Jesus Christ and at the same time, he tells us of the special blessing to all who read AND hear the Words of this prophecy!

John recorded what was given to him by Jesus Himself in Revelation chapter 1:

The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show His servants-things which must shortly take place. And He sent and signified it by His angel to His servant John,

2 who bore witness to the Word of God, and to the testimony of Jesus Christ, to all things that he saw.  Jesus sent an angel to “sign-ify” the Truth John was to record.

The beginning of this Book provides us with vital understanding.  It is not Revelations in the plural, but it is Revelation in the singular.  This Book IS about Jesus Christ, His Nature, and His Purpose for all of mankind.

3 Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the Words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written in it; for the time is near.

As I have mentioned before, this is the only Book of the sixty-six Books in the Bible that promises a special blessing!  This is exactly why The Holy Spirit has had me focus on this Revelation in great detail.  I cannot expect you to agree with every word I have written, it is your responsibility to glean the revelation yourself.

4 John, to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace to you and peace from Him Who is and Who was and Who is to come, and from the Seven Spirits who are before His Throne,

5 and from Jesus Christ, the Faithful Witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the Ruler over the kings of the earth. To Him Who Loved us and washed us from our sins in His Own Blood,

6 and has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.

There were seven churches who “signified” the state of the hundreds of churches in existence at that time.  This Revelation is noted as being specifically from The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit.

The first event is referenced when John wrote “He has made us kings and priests” which has already occurred in the prophecy.

7 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.

Here, John records the second event when ALL will see Him, and all will mourn because of Him.  If you have been made a king AND priest, you will not be mourning… you will be joyful.  The Jews were never allowed to be both a king and priest, so this is not referencing the Jews.

8 “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End,” says the Lord, “Who is and Who was and Who is to come, the Almighty.”

Jesus is no longer the son of man but is now The Son of GOD and is equal with HIS FATHER, the Almighty.

These first eight verses are rich with revelation themselves.  I must admit that in the past, I did not pay close attention to what was being said.  I have been guilty of blasting through introductions.  I repent!  Ever Word is vital to our understanding for FATHER would not have placed Words there simply as “fillers”.  This is without question an Integrated Message System given for our benefit.  To him who has ears, let him hear!

Two Events: Part 9

Tuesday, September 19th, 2023

The second event was prophesied, by Enoch who walked with FATHER 300 years before he was harpazo’d!

Moses recorded by THE SPIRIT in Genesis chapter 5:

21  Enoch lived sixty-five years, and begot Methuselah.

22 After he begot Methuselah, Enoch walked with God three hundred years, and had sons and daughters.

23 So all the days of Enoch were three hundred and sixty-five years.

24 And Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took him.

Jude wrote by The Holy Spirit in his Epistle:

14  Now Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about these men also, saying, “Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of His saints,

15 to execute judgment on all, to convict all who are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have committed in an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him.”

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Hebrews chapter 11:

5 Faith translated Enoch from this life and he was taken up into Heaven! He never had to experience death; he just disappeared from this world because God promoted him. For before he was translated to the Heavenly realm his life had become a pleasure to God.

Enoch provides us with the expanded perspective of two events: the harpazo and the second coming of judgment.  The names were meant to prophesy:

MahalalelThe Blessed God
JaredShall come down
MethuselahHis death shall bring
LamechThe Despairing
NoahRest, or comfort.

In the Book of Beginnings, the final Book of Revelation was prophesied.  The Old Testament provides over 800 allusions to the 404 verses in the Book of Revelation. 

The integrity and design of the 66 separate Books of the Bible which was written by 40 different authors clearly demonstrates that the Bible is an integrated message system by Our Creator for our benefit.  This reveals that this Message is originated outside of our dimensions of space and time.  FATHER, Jesus Christ, and The Holy Spirit as well as Heaven are all revealed from this perfect integrated message system which is without flaw.  Any perceived flaw is due to our lack of understanding (aka blindness).  The architecture and integrity is exact.

Enoch spent 300 years walking with FATHER and was harpazo’d.  Would you question anything he prophesied?  Don’t you know that he spoke to Methuselah and Lamech while he was alive?  He was 252 years old when Lamech was born.  Both Methuselah and Lamech witnessed Enoch’s departure.  This provided the teaching for Noah who by faith built the ark.

If you have ever questioned the ark’s capacity to fulfill its mission, simply go to the Ark Encounter in Kentucky and go through the life-size ark.  My wife and I went through this ark and saw how Noah was able to fulfill his calling firsthand.

Moses, Jude, and Paul all recorded the harpazo of Enoch who had prophesied the coming judgment. Let there be no question of what is coming to the earth dwellers!

Two Events: Part 8

Monday, September 18th, 2023

The second event was prophesied, and FATHER will righteously judge in the future as HE has done in the past!

Peter recorded by The Holy Spirit in 2nd Peter chapter 3:

1  Beloved, I now write to you this second epistle (in both of which I stir up your pure minds by way of reminder),

2 that you may be mindful of the Words which were spoken before by the Holy prophets, and of the commandment of us, the apostles of the Lord and Savior,

3 knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts,

4 and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.”

5 For this they willfully forget: that by the Word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of water and in the water,

6 by which the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water.

7 But the heavens and the earth which are now preserved by the same Word, are reserved for fire until the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

Jesus prophesied that the great tribulation would come, and Peter was a witness.  FATHER’S first judgment of the unrighteous was by water but this time, it will be by fire. 

Noah and his family could not be harpazo’d because Jesus had not yet shed His Blood for mankind, so FATHER shut them up in the ark until the judgment had passed.  They did not allow their genetics to be altered as the rest of mankind had done not only to themselves but many species of animals.  Only the unaltered species were allowed aboard the ark.

8 But, Beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

9 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.

We are in somewhat of a race to save as many souls as possible before the next period of judgment.  All sinners are potential believers unless they have totally rejected Christ.  Only then does FATHER give them up for destruction.

10 But the Day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up.

11 Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in Holy conduct and Godliness,

12 looking for and hastening the coming of the Day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat?

13 Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.

Many have attempted to predict the time of the great tribulation in the past and all were wrong.  It includes those during Paul’s ministry.  We are to occupy until Jesus comes for His Bride which will initiate the timing of the soon to come great tribulation.  Let our priorities align with FATHER’S priorities and minister life to those around us.  Let us plant seeds of righteousness to those who observe our words and actions.

14 Therefore, Beloved, looking forward to these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, without spot and blameless;

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in 2nd Corinthians chapter 5:

20  So we are Christ’s ambassadors, God making His appeal as it were through us. We [as Christ’s personal representatives] beg you for His sake to lay hold of the Divine favor [now offered you] and be reconciled to God.

21 For our sake He made Christ [virtually] to be sin Who knew no sin, so that in and through Him we might become [endued with, viewed as being in, and examples of] the righteousness of God [what we ought to be, approved and acceptable and in right relationship with Him, by His goodness].  AMPL

As ambassadors, we are to faithfully represent Jesus Christ to the world so that those who are drawn by The Holy Spirit will not perish in the coming judgment.  Let us take this calling seriously!

Two Events: Part 7

Sunday, September 17th, 2023

The second event was prophesied and we have been given significant details of how this will play out!

Luke recorded by The Holy Spirit in Acts chapter 1:

9  Now when Jesus had spoken these things, while they watched, He was taken up, and a cloud received Him out of their sight.

10 And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as He went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel,

11 who also said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven.”

Jesus Himself told the Pharisees and His Disciples that He would return on the clouds of Heaven in Matthew 26:64. In both passages, Jesus was speaking to a Jewish audience for the church had yet to be formed.  It is important to know who is being spoken to and differentiate between the Jews, the Gentiles, and the true Church.

Peter spoke (and Luke recorded) by The Holy Spirit in Acts chapter 3:

17  “Yet now, brethren, I know that you did it in ignorance, as did also your rulers. 18 But those things which God foretold by the mouth of all His prophets, that the Christ would suffer, He has thus fulfilled.

19 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,

20 and that He may send Jesus Christ, Who was preached to you before,

21 whom Heaven must receive until the times of restoration of all things, which God has spoken by the mouth of all His Holy prophets since the world began.

Peter was urging the Jews to repent and be converted as part of the true Church who now have The Holy Spirit to rely on rather than the Pharisees.  Only by accepting Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior could their sins be blotted out and be refreshed in the Presence of THE LORD.

Paul emphasized this conversion as he wrote by The Holy Spirit in 1st Thessalonians chapter 3:

11Now may our God and Father Himself, and our Lord Jesus Christ, direct our way to you.

12 And may the Lord make you increase and abound in Love to one another and to all, just as we do to you,

13 so that He may establish your hearts blameless in Holiness before our God and Father at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all His saints.

And in 2nd Thessalonians chapter 1:

6  since it is a righteous thing with God to repay with tribulation those who trouble you,

7 and to give you who are troubled rest with us when the Lord Jesus is revealed from Heaven with His mighty angels,

8 in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God, and on those who do not obey the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

9 These shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the Presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power,

10 when He comes, in that Day, to be glorified in His saints and to be admired among all those who believe, because our testimony among you was believed.

Make no mistake, there will be those who believe and are eager for His coming and there will be those who will suffer at His second coming.

Further, in 2nd Thessalonians chapter 2:

6  And now you know what is restraining, that he may be revealed in his own time. 7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way.

8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His Mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming.

9 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.

11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie,

12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the Truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

The Holy Spirit was given for the true Church to come forth and multiply on earth.  Once the Church and The Holy Spirit are removed from the earth in the harpazo, the restraint is gone.  This will allow the lawless one to be revealed and the tribulation will come forth.  Now is the time to prioritize your works and focus on producing good fruit for the Kingdom.

Two Events: Part 6

Saturday, September 16th, 2023

After the future event of the harpazo are the great tribulation and the second coming of Jesus Christ!

Jesus spoke about His second coming in Matthew 13:

37  Jesus answered and said to them: “He who sows the good seed is the Son of Man.

38 The field is the world, the good seeds are the sons of the kingdom, but the tares are the sons of the wicked one.

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!

Jesus issued a warning to all who would listen.  Ultimately, it gets down to two groups: the righteous through Jesus Christ and those who reject Him.  It cannot be any plainer than this!

Again, Jesus speaks of the second coming in Matthew chapter 24:

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),

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

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.

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

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.

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.

There is no one eagerly waiting for Jesus to appear.  The elect are those who we call “Tribulation Saints” and have fully accepted Christ during the great tribulation.

Again, Jesus responded to the Pharisees in Matthew chapter 26:

62  And the high priest arose and said to Him, “Do You answer nothing? What is it these men testify against You?”

63 But Jesus kept silent. And the high priest answered and said to Him, “I put You under oath by the living God: Tell us if You are the Christ, the Son of God!”

64 Jesus said to him, “It is as you said. Nevertheless, I say to you, hereafter you will see the Son of Man sitting at the Right Hand of the Power, and coming on the clouds of Heaven.

65 Then the high priest tore his clothes, saying, “He has spoken blasphemy! What further need do we have of witnesses? Look, now you have heard His blasphemy!

Jesus prophesied of His second coming to the religious leaders and they were obviously not eager to hear such a prophecy!

Jesus speaks specifically to His Jewish disciples in Luke chapter 21:

25  “And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring;

26 men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken.

27 Then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.

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

The Jews who consistently rejected Christ will get the opportunity to accept Him.  They have constantly been hard of hearing throughout Scripture.  When they experience the great tribulation, some will finally accept Him as their Savior.  Why go through such a time?

To him who has ears, let him hear?

Two Events: Part 5

Friday, September 15th, 2023

There are two distinct, major future events: The harpazo and the second coming of Jesus Christ!

Previously we focused on the harpazo where believers are eagerly waiting for the event.  But now, we will look at the second event and its ramifications.  It is vital that we not allow ourselves to be moved by what is called a single scripture doctrine

In my earlier years, I was misled by teachings that isolated one or a few passages that were developed to fit a different doctrine that was expressed as a new revelation.  I relied on the teacher’s reputation rather than doing my own serious study.  My mistake!  I urge you to not take my word for these positions I am writing but to let The Holy Spirit guide you into all Truth.  This is why I include several passages for you to consider.

It is recorded by The Holy Spirit in Daniel chapter 2:

44  And in the days of these kings the God of Heaven will set up a Kingdom which shall never be destroyed; and the Kingdom shall not be left to other people; It shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever.

45 Inasmuch as you saw that the Stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it broke in pieces the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver, and the gold-the great God has made known to the king what will come to pass after this. The dream is certain, and its interpretation is sure.”

This Kingdom has yet to come, but will.  This is a certainty!

And in Daniel chapter 7:

9  “I watched till thrones were put in place, And the Ancient of Days was seated; His Garment was white as snow, And the Hair of His head was like pure wool. His Throne was a fiery flame, Its wheels a burning fire;

10 A fiery stream issued And came forth from before Him. A thousand thousands ministered to Him; Ten thousand times ten thousand stood before Him. The court was seated, And the books were opened.

11 “I watched then because of the sound of the pompous words which the horn was speaking; I watched till the beast was slain, and its body destroyed and given to the burning flame.

12 As for the rest of the beasts, they had their dominion taken away, yet their lives were prolonged for a season and a time.

13 “I was watching in the night visions, And behold, One like the Son of Man, Coming with the clouds of heaven! He came to the Ancient of Days, And they brought Him near before Him.

14 Then to Him was given dominion and glory and a kingdom, That all peoples, nations, and languages should serve Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion, Which shall not pass away, And His kingdom the one Which shall not be destroyed.

What is the function of a true court?  It is to execute justice based on Absolute Truth.  There are books in Heaven recording men’s actions here on earth.  Only those whose sins were blotted out by the Blood of The Lamb will be found innocent.  Everyone else will be judged with Holy Fire.  Jesus IS The Way, the ONLY Way!

And in Daniel chapter  12:

1  “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 nation, Even to that time. And at that time Your people shall be delivered, Every one who is found written in the book.

2 And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, Some to everlasting life, Some to shame and everlasting contempt.

3 Those who are wise shall shine Like the brightness of the firmament, And those who turn many to righteousness Like the stars forever and ever.

Let us be wise and be prepared for His Coming.  Let us establish priorities that align with what truly matters and not allow ourselves to be focused on the wood, hay, or stubble associated with the temporary.  Let us be seen as living sacrifices doing His Will, not our own.

It is written by THE SPIRIT in Zechariah 14:

Behold, the day of the LORD is coming, And your spoil will be divided in your midst. 2 For I will gather all the nations to battle against Jerusalem; The city shall be taken, The houses rifled, And the women ravished. Half of the city shall go into captivity, But the remnant of the people shall not be cut off from the city.

3 Then the LORD will go forth And fight against those nations, As He fights in the day of battle.

5 Then you shall flee through My mountain valley, For the mountain valley shall reach to Azal. Yes, you shall flee As you fled from the earthquake In the days of Uzziah king of Judah. Thus the LORD my God will come, And all the saints with You.

6 It shall come to pass in that day That there will be no light; The lights will diminish.

7 It shall be one day Which is known to the LORD– Neither day nor night. But at evening time it shall happen That it will be light.

8 And in that day it shall be That Living waters shall flow from Jerusalem, Half of them toward the eastern sea And half of them toward the western sea; In both summer and winter it shall occur.

9 And the LORD shall be King over all the earth. In that day it shall be- “The LORD is one,” And His name one.

There is absolutely no question of the final result. 

Thy Kingdom come, Thy Will be done on earth as It is in Heaven! 

We are simply agreeing with the prophecies originating from Heaven so don’t be discouraged with what you see here on earth.  The adversary and his minions will be defeated and dealt with in the end.  Let us focus our energies to walk as living sacrifices as Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Romans chapter 12:

1  I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, Holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.

2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect Will of God.

Two Events: Part 4

Thursday, September 14th, 2023

There are two distinct, major future events: Life and death are presented to us, choose life!

  Moses recorded by The Holy Spirit in Deuteronomy chapter 30:

15  “See, I have set before you today life and good, death and evil,

16 in that I command you today to Love the LORD your God, to walk in His ways, and to keep His commandments, His statutes, and His judgments, that you may live and multiply; and the LORD your God will bless you in the land which you go to possess.

17 But if your heart turns away so that you do not hear, and are drawn away, and worship other gods and serve them,

18 I announce to you today that you shall surely perish; you shall not prolong your days in the land which you cross over the Jordan to go in and possess.

19 I call Heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live;

FATHER has always given us the right to choose.  HE gave the Jews the right and HE gives the Gentiles the right.  Why choose death?

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit to Titus chapter 2:

11  For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men,

12 teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and Godly in the present age,

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

14 Who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works.

15 So preach these Truths and exhort others to follow them. Be willing to expose sin in order to bring correction with full authority, without being intimidated by anyone.

Jesus’ appearing to those who Love Him is much different than His return to earth to execute judgment at the end of the great tribulation.  We are to preach the Truth of the need for salvation and not allow ourselves to be intimidated by those who are attempting to redefine Truth in order to affirm their perverse social standards and sin.

Paul also wrote by The Holy Spirit in Hebrews chapter 9:

27  Every human being is appointed to die once, and then to face God’s judgment.

28 But when we die we will be face-to-face with Christ, the One who experienced death once for all to bear the sins of many! And now to those who eagerly await Him, He will appear a second time; not to deal with sin, but to bring us the fullness of salvation.

Once again, we are eagerly awaiting His appearing and to be harpazo’d with Him.  This is the fullness of our salvation, to be with Him in Heaven!

James wrote by The Holy Spirit in his epistle, chapter 5:

Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently for it until it receives the early and latter rain.

8 You also be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand.

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

FATHER wants no one to perish and HE is patient until the fullness of time has occurred.  Only then will HE send His Son to gather the firstfruits, His Bride, to return to Heaven.

The Beloved Disciple wrote by The Holy Spirit in 1st John chapter 2:

28  And now, little children, abide in Him, that when He appears, we may have confidence and not be ashamed before Him at His coming.

29 If you know that He is righteous, you know that everyone who practices righteousness is born of Him.

3:1  Behold what manner of Love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him.

2 Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.

3 And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.

How wonderful it will be when we shall be like Him and see the fullness as He is!  Why?  We chose life.

Jude wrote by The Holy Spirit:

20  But you, Beloved, building yourselves up on your most Holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit,

21 keep yourselves in the Love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto Eternal Life.

22 And on some have compassion, making a distinction;

23 but others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire, hating even the garment defiled by the flesh.

24 Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, And to present you faultless Before the Presence of His glory with exceeding joy,

We are to pull others out of the fire if possible.  We do this by preaching the Good News and properly representing ourselves as true believers.  We are to walk in The Fear of THE LORD in all areas of our life.

Jesus spoke in Revelation chapter 2:

25  But hold fast what you have till I come.

26 And he who overcomes, and keeps My works until the end, to him I will give power over the nations-

And in Revelation chapter 3:

10  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.

11 Behold, I am coming quickly! Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown.

12 He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go out no more. I will write on him the Name of My God and the name of the city of My God, the New Jerusalem, which comes down out of Heaven from My God. And I will write on him My New Name.

These are promises to His Bride.  Jesus will keep us from the “hour of trial” so let’s persevere and keep ourselves pure from the world’s trappings.

If He was to come tomorrow, what would change about your priorities today?

Two Events: Part 3

Wednesday, September 13th, 2023

There are two distinct, major future events: the rapture promotes life and the second coming which deals with FATHER’S Justice and wrath!

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in 1st Thessalonians chapter 5:

For God has not destined us for wrath but to possess salvation through our Lord Jesus, the Anointed One.

10 He gave his Life for us so that we may share in resurrection life in union with Him—whether we’re awake or asleep.

11 Because of this, encourage the hearts of your fellow believers and support one another, just as you have already been doing.

Before we were formed in the womb, we have an appointed destiny by The GODHEAD.  However, each of us has the option to accept our individual appointments, or paths.

Paul distinguishes the two events in 2nd Thessalonians chapter 1:

4  so that we ourselves boast of you among the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that you endure,

5 which is manifest evidence of the righteous judgment of God, that you may be counted worthy of the Kingdom of God, for which you also suffer;

6 since it is a righteous thing with God to repay with tribulation those who trouble you,

7 and to give you who are troubled rest with us when the Lord Jesus is revealed from Heaven with His mighty angels,

8 in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God, and on those who do not obey the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

9 These shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the Presence of the Lord and from the Glory of His power,

10 when He comes, in that Day, to be glorified in His saints and to be admired among all those who believe, because our testimony among you was believed.

There can be no question that all men will fall into one of two categories: salvation or everlasting destruction.  We have been given the directive by Jesus Himself to minister to the lost and to the poor who will experience The Love of Christ through our actions.  Every person is without excuse for each have implanted the reality of GOD.

Paul made that abundantly clear when he wrote by The Holy Spirit in Romans chapter 1:

20 Opposition to Truth cannot be excused on the basis of ignorance, because from the creation of the world, the invisible qualities of God’s nature have been made visible, such as his eternal power and transcendence. He has made his wonderful attributes easily perceived, for seeing the visible makes us understand the invisible. So then, this leaves everyone without excuse.

Paul also encouraged us in 1st Timothy chapter 6:

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.

13 I urge you in the sight of God Who gives Life to all things, and before Christ Jesus who witnessed the good confession before Pontius Pilate,

14 that you keep this commandment without spot, blameless until our Lord Jesus Christ’s appearing,

15 which He will manifest in His own time, He who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings and Lord of lords,

There is “the appearing” and “the return to earth”.  The timing of “His appearing” is only known by FATHER.  “The return to earth” will be known once the great tribulation begins.

Jesus spoke in Mark chapter 13:

32  “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels in Heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.

33 Take heed, watch and pray; for you do not know when the time is.

34 It is like a man going to a far country, who left his house and gave authority to his servants, and to each his work, and commanded the doorkeeper to watch.

35 Watch therefore, for you do not know when the master of the house is coming-in the evening, at midnight, at the crowing of the rooster, or in the morning-

36 lest, coming suddenly, he find you sleeping.

37 And what I say to you, I say to all: Watch!”

Each generation has been warned of His second coming and expected it to occur in their lifetime.  The devil and his minions don’t know the time so they are continuous attempting to prevent men from fulfilling their individual callings.  They use vessels of dishonor to carry out the resistance.  They have babies killed hoping to remove the mandates of FATHER to bring forth HIS Kingdom on earth.  They tried to remove both Moses and Jesus but were unsuccessful. 

We are not to be surprised by the perversion of today around the world.  Our focus must remain on the commission given to us by Jesus Himself.  I am fully committed and I trust you are too.

Paul summed it up as he wrote by The Holy Spirit in 2nd Timothy chapter 4:

1  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 Preach the Word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching.

3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers;

4 and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.

5 But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.

Two Events: Part 2

Tuesday, September 12th, 2023

There are two distinct, major future events: the rapture and the second coming!

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in 1st Corinthians chapter 1:

7  so that you come short in no gift, eagerly waiting for the revelation of ;our Lord Jesus Christ,

8 who will also confirm you to the end, that you may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.

9 God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

The Bride is eagerly waiting for the Bridegroom, whereas the world be terrified of what will soon happen once the Bride has been removed.  Paul referred to the two separate events when he wrote in the final chapter in 1st Corinthians 16:

22 If anyone does not Love the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be accursed (doomed as an outcast). O Lord, come!

It is rather black and white, given Paul’s understanding and revelation of the two events.

Paul also wrote by The Holy Spirit in Philippians chapter 3:

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

21 Who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His Glorious Body, according to the working by which He is able even to subdue all things to Himself.

Our Lord Jesus Christ gave Paul a glimpse of what is to take place in the future for His Bride.  He was given the revelation of Love and wrote about It to the Corinthians which should be comforting to all who embrace the harpazo of the Bride.  We must focus on purifying ourselves as we navigate through this sin-ridden world.

Paul provides a further contrast in Colossians chapter 3:

1  If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the Right Hand of God.

2 Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.

3 For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.

4 When Christ Who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.

5 Therefore put to death your members which are on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry.

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

7 in which you yourselves once walked when you lived in them.

The Bride is with Jesus before FATHER brings forth HIS wrath on the earth.  There is a clear separation between the harpazo and the great tribulation.

It is of paramount importance that you and I seek out the lost sheep as an act of Love.  The ninety-nine sheep are waiting for the Shepherd to find any sheep missing.

Paul also wrote in 1st Thessalonians chapter 1:

9  For they themselves declare concerning us what manner of entry we had to you, and how you turned to God from idols to serve the Living and True God,

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.

Idol worship is all around us as people exalt those who provide entertainment, especially on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.  Athletes are paid millions to entertain the masses and now most casual restaurants have multiple TV’S spewing sports 24 hours per day.  Those TV’S are meant to distract customers from having true conversations and fellowship at the table.

Jesus is focused on lost souls, not lost football games.  Ouch!!!

Paul further writes in chapter 2:

17  But we, brethren, having been taken away from you for a short time in presence, not in heart, endeavored more eagerly to see your face with great desire.

18 Therefore we wanted to come to you-even I, Paul, time and again-but Satan hindered us.

19 For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Is it not even you in the Presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at His coming?

20 For you are our glory and joy.

Our joy is to be with Jesus at His coming.  His Bride will be full of joy, but the sons of disobedience will be full of terror.

The mystery of the two events has been hidden in plain sight to most who have spent no time in studying the Revelation of Jesus Christ, the climactic Book at the end!  That included me in the earlier years.
