IN THE BEGINNING WAS THE WORD, AND THE WORD WAS WITH GOD, AND THE WORD WAS GOD-Jn
1:1. Jesus is the Word. And GOD CREATED THE HEAVEN AND THE EARTH-Gen
And God created man in His own image, and God blessed them-ref Gen 1:27,28. Then the Lord God planted a garden in Eden, and there put the man-ref Gen 2:8. And the Lord God commanded the man telling him that he could eat of every tree of the garden, except the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. God warned Adam of the penalty of disobedience by telling him that in the day he would eat thereof, he would surely die-ref Gen 2:15-17.
Now the serpent, which is Satan, the devil, was more crafty than any of the wild animals that the Lord God had made-ref Gen 3:1. He began sowing doubt in Eve’s mind by asking her, "Has God said, ‘Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?’ " Then he contradicted what God had said by telling her that she would not surely die. Thus, the fear of God’s judgment had been eliminated by Satan’s lie. Her emotions chose to believe a lie rather than God’s Word. And when she saw the tree was good for food, and pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she did eat-ref Gen 3:1-6. She also gave to her husband, and he did eat. They had sinned. They had disobeyed God’s command-ref Gen 3:6. Then their eyes were opened, and they realized they were naked-ref Gen 3:7.
And the Lord God called unto Adam, and said, "Where are you?" Because they had sinned and were naked, they were afraid and hid-ref Gen 3:8. And the Lord God said, "Have you eaten of the tree?"-ref Gen 3:11. Then Adam blamed his wife by saying, "She gave me, and I ate it"-ref Gen 3:12. The Lord God asked the woman, "What have you done?" She blamed the devil by saying, "The serpent deceived me"-ref Gen 3:13. Adam and Eve had sinned, and were now spiritually dead. They were without hope. Their sin was separating them from God.
Now God begins to reveal His mercy and plan to redeem people from their sins. He begins to reveal the coming of Messiah. And as we now know, it is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ that we can be reconciled to God through faith. The Lord God said, I WILL PUT ENMITY BETWEEN YOU (Satan) AND THE WOMAN (Israel), AND BETWEEN YOUR OFFSPRING (the offspring of Satan, the son of Satan, the Antichrist which is yet to come, as well as the children of the devil) AND HERS (the Son of Man, the Son of God, Jesus Christ); HE (Jesus) WILL CRUSH YOUR HEAD, AND YOU (Satan) WILL STRIKE HIS HEEL-Gen 3:15 NIV. (Satan was defeated at the cross, and, ultimately, will be cast into the lake of fire; however, Satan was allowed to cause the death of Jesus, but to his own defeat.) Adam had sinned, but now, God has shown His great mercy in announcing the coming of the Messiah. So the Lord God banished Adam from the garden of Eden, and from the tree of life-ref Gen 3:24. God put a curse on the ground, and told Adam, "To dust you shall return"-ref Gen 3:19.
Eve, Adam’s wife, gave birth to Cain and Abel. Abel was a keeper of sheep, and
Cain worked the soil. In the course of time, Cain brought the fruit of the ground
for an offering unto the Lord. (This indicates that God had instructed them
in some manner concerning offerings.) Abel brought of the firstborn of his flock,
and of the fat thereof. The Lord looked with favor on Abel and his offering,
but on Cain and his offering He did not look with favor. So Cain was angry.
The Lord said to Cain, "If you do right, will you not be accepted?"-ref
Gen 4:1-7. It may be noted there is a right attitude and a wrong attitude. There
is a right way and a wrong way. The right attitude is one of repentance and
believing God. The wrong attitude is one of no repentance and not believing
God. The right way is doing it God’s way. Abel’s offering was of the best of
the flock. Cain’s offering was of the ground that was cursed. Note, God accepted
Abel, and as a result, his offering which was correct, was also accepted. However,
God did not accept Cain for he did not do that which was right. As a result,
his offering was also not accepted. In addition, he also brought a wrong offering,
which may indicate he did not believe in doing it God’s way. Still, God left
the door open for repentance, as He said to Cain, that if he did right, would
he not be accepted? The right way is repentance: a transformation, a conversion,
and coming by faith in Jesus Christ, Who shed His blood for our sins. The wrong
way is coming without repentance. If you come by believing in Jesus Christ,
you must also come by "His" way and by believing "His" Word.
Cain had a wrong attitude. Afterwards, Cain killed Abel-ref Gen 4:8; and God pronounced judgment upon Cain-ref Gen 4:11,12.
And Adam had a son, and called his name Seth-ref Gen 5:3. It was from the lineage of Seth that, ultimately, Noah would come forth. The number of people greatly increased upon the earth.
It came to pass that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and God was grieved that He had made man-ref Gen 6:5,6. God made a decision to destroy man and animals, including the creatures that went along the ground, and the birds; but Noah found grace in God's eyes-ref Gen 6:7,8. Noah built an ark at God's direction-ref Gen 6:14-22. Noah entered the ark, and his family, and all the creatures that God had determined to keep alive came into the ark, and the Lord shut him in-ref Gen 7:13-16. The flood came, and all flesh died that moved upon the earth-ref Gen 7:17,21-23. All the high mountains were covered with the water-Gen 7:19. Finally, the waters receded, and Noah and his family, and all the living things left the ark-ref Gen 8:15-19. Then Noah built an altar to the Lord, and God made a covenant with Noah-ref Gen 8:20-9:15. Through the sons of Noah, the whole earth was repopulated-Gen 9:18,19. After the flood, the earth was of one language. Man again rebelled against God. Then God confounded their language, and scattered them all over the earth-Gen 11:1-8.
From the lineage of Noah and Shem, came Abram. From Abram (Abraham) came Ishmael and Isaac. Ishmael was born of the bond woman, and Isaac was born of the free woman. These two half brothers were at odds with each other. It was originally expected that Ishmael would be Abram's heir; however, GOD SAID...IN ISAAC SHALL THY SEED BE CALLED-Gen 21:12. Many of the Arabs today are descendants of Ishmael. They believe the land of Israel should belong to them as they are the offspring of the firstborn of Abram. But God said the heir would be the offspring of Isaac. Thus, there is what appears to be an unsolvable problem in the Middle East. This same feud between Ishmael and Isaac goes on today. This forms the basis for much of the Bible prophecy that is yet to happen. God's covenant is with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and their seed.
Sodom and Gomorrah, in which ten just men could not be found, was destroyed-ref Gen 18:32; 19:22-25.
Abraham begat Isaac. Isaac begat Jacob, whose name was changed by God, to Israel-ref Gen 35:10. From Jacob came twelve sons, which would become the twelve tribes of Israel-ref Gen 35:22-26. Israel went to Egypt.
in Egypt, Moses was born-ref Acts 7:20. The Lord worked great miracles by the
hand of Moses against Egypt-ref Ex 3:14,17,20. Moses led the Jews out of the
land of Egypt. The children of Israel had been in Egypt for four hundred and
thirty years-ref Ex 12:40,41. And Israel rebelled against God, and brought up
an evil report regarding the promised land. Thus, Israel wandered in the wilderness
forty years, and God was grieved with that generation-ref Heb 3:8-10. All the
Jews from the age of twenty and upward died in the wilderness, except two-ref
Num chapters 13 and 14.
The seven feasts of Leviticus were initiated-ref Lev chapter 23. The tabernacle, the ark, mercy seat, cherubims, table, candlestick, seven lamps, veil, door, altar, horns, court, gate and lamp to burn were all initiated-ref Ex chapters 25, 26, 27.
Israel was tempted in the wilderness. Finally, Joshua was given a charge. Moses did see the promised land, but was not permitted to pass over the Jordan River-ref Deut 34:1-4. Moses died, but his life force never abated-ref Deut 31:14; 34:5-8. The children of Israel followed Joshua, and entered the promised land-ref Deut 34:9; Jos 3:15-17; yet, they still would not obey God. They wanted a king-ref 1 Sam 8:5-8. Saul became the first king, and David followed-ref 2 Sam 7:12-17. Afterward, came Solomon. Israel later split into Israel and Judah-ref 2 Chr 10:11,15,19.
Finally, Israel was conquered because of sinning against the Lord. They would not follow the Lord-ref 2 Ki 17:11,13,14; 18:11,12. Eventually, Judah was also conquered-ref Jere 19:15; Dan 1:1-3; 2 Chr 36:7; Jere 52:28; 2 Ki 24:11,14,15.
Then Nebuchadnezzar had a dream, and Daniel told him the dream and the interpretation. That dream included the kingdoms that would follow his, as well as prophecies which included events that are yet to happen-ref Dan 2:1-45.
During the days of Daniel, other prophecies also came forth directly relating to the times in which we are now living-ref many chapters in Daniel. Among the most significant was Daniel 9:21-27, which are the "seventy weeks of Daniel."
was expecting the Messiah-ref Lk 2:25,36,38. Then Jesus was born of a virgin-ref
Lk 1:26,27,35; 2:4-7. The birth, life, crucifixion, and rising from the dead
of Jesus, fulfilled hundreds of Scriptures. The Scriptures give us approximately
172 reasons that Jesus came the first time. Jesus grew-ref Lk 2:40. His ministry
began when He was about the age of thirty-ref Lk 3:21-23. He fasted forty days-ref
Lk 4:1,2. The devil tempted Him-ref Lk 4:3-13. There were many witnesses and
proofs that Jesus is the only begotten Son of God. Jesus had said many times,
I AM. Many Scriptures covered the ministry of Jesus which were fulfilled. Jesus
healed many-ref Lk 4:31,32,40. He cast out devils. THE MULTITUDES MARVELED-Mt
9:33; Lk 4:41. Jesus raised the dead-ref Lk 7:11,12,14-16.
Jesus preached on multitudes of subjects. Some included, repentance-ref Mt 4:17; denying oneself-ref Lk 9:23; fearing God-ref Lk 12:4,5; covetousness-ref Lk 12:15,22,23,30-34; your lights burning, waiting for the Lord's return, watching, and doing-ref Lk 12:35-37,43. Jesus mentioned water baptism-ref Mk 16:16, and He taught that MANY...WILL SEEK TO ENTER IN, AND SHALL NOT BE ABLE-Lk 13:23,24.
Then Jesus entered Jerusalem-ref Mk 11:7,11. He was betrayed by Judas, one of His apostles-ref Lk 22:47,48. He was led away captive-ref Jn 18:12,13. Jesus was tried, and declared guilty of blasphemy by the high priest-ref Mk 14:61-64.
As it is written, FOR OF A TRUTH AGAINST THY HOLY CHILD JESUS, WHOM THOU HAST ANOINTED, BOTH HEROD, AND PONTIUS PILATE, WITH THE GENTILES, AND THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL, WERE GATHERED TOGETHER-Acts 4:27. AND...THE CHIEF PRIESTS AND THE RULERS AND THE PEOPLE...CRIED...CRUCIFY HIM, CRUCIFY HIM-Lk 23:13,21. THEN...THE PEOPLE…SAID, HIS BLOOD BE ON US, AND ON OUR CHILDREN-Mt 27:25. AND PILATE GAVE SENTENCE THAT IT SHOULD BE AS THEY REQUIRED-Lk 23:24. And HE HAD JESUS FLOGGED, AND HANDED HIM OVER TO BE CRUCIFIED-Mk 15:15 NIV. AND THEY CRUCIFIED HIM-Mt 27:35.
The blood of Jesus, our Passover Lamb, had to be shed. MANY WHO WERE APPALLED (or astonied) AT HIM - HIS APPEARANCE WAS SO DISFIGURED BEYOND THAT OF ANY MAN AND HIS FORM MARRED BEYOND HUMAN LIKENESS-Isa 52:14 NIV.
Even while He was on the cross, He was tempted in many ways-ref Mt 27:39-44; Lk 23:36,37. AND WHEN JESUS HAD CRIED WITH A LOUD VOICE, HE SAID, FATHER, INTO THY HANDS I COMMEND MY SPIRIT: AND HAVING SAID THUS, HE GAVE UP THE GHOST-Lk 23:46.
Jesus was buried. NOW IN THE PLACE WHERE HE WAS CRUCIFIED THERE WAS A GARDEN; AND IN THE GARDEN A NEW SEPULCHRE, WHEREIN WAS NEVER MAN YET LAID. THERE LAID THEY JESUS-Jn 19:41,42.
The tomb Jesus was laid in was secured, so no one could steal His body away. PILATE SAID...(Take a guard): GO YOUR WAY, MAKE IT AS SURE (or secure) AS YE CAN. SO THEY WENT, AND MADE THE SEPULCHRE SURE (or secure), SEALING THE STONE, AND SETTING A WATCH (or posting the guard)-ref Mt 27:62-66.
Yet despite the precautions, Jesus rose from the dead-ref Mt 28:2-7; as was also prophesied-ref Acts 13:34,35; Ps 16:10. Following His resurrection, Jesus appeared to many-ref 1 Cor 15:6; Mk 16:15-18. Also HE (Jesus) SHOWED HIMSELF ALIVE AFTER HIS PASSION (or suffering) BY MANY INFALLIBLE PROOFS, BEING SEEN OF THEM FORTY DAYS-Acts 1:3.
Jesus gave commissions and instructions after His resurrection. Then Jesus ascended up to heaven. AND HE (Jesus) LED THEM OUT AS FAR AS TO BETHANY, AND HE LIFTED UP HIS HANDS, AND BLESSED THEM-Lk 24:50. AND WHEN HE HAD SPOKEN THESE THINGS, WHILE THEY BEHELD, HE WAS TAKEN UP; AND A CLOUD RECEIVED HIM OUT OF THEIR SIGHT-Acts 1:9. Nevertheless, He is going to return. As it is written, THIS SAME JESUS, WHICH IS TAKEN UP FROM YOU INTO HEAVEN, SHALL SO COME IN LIKE MANNER AS YE HAVE SEEN HIM GO INTO HEAVEN-Acts 1:11.
Jesus is now in heaven, and sits on the right hand of God the Father-ref 1 Pe 3:22; Mk 16:19; Heb 10:12. He MAKETH INTERCESSION FOR the saints-Ro 8:34; ref Heb 7:25. The Bible gives us many names for Jesus in the Revelation.
Then Judas, the apostle that betrayed Jesus, was replaced by Matthias as the twelfth apostle-ref Acts 1:21,22,24-26.
Within a generation of the crucifixion of Jesus, Jerusalem and the temple were destroyed-ref Lk 21:20-24; Dan 9:26; Mt 23:34-38. Through out the Old Testament and New Testament, the second coming of Jesus was prophesied. The various things Jesus went through had very significant meanings. The resurrection of Jesus was proven in many ways.
was prophesied that Israel would be destroyed. It was.
It was prophesied that Israel would be scattered among the islands of the sea, even among the heathen. It happened.
It was prophesied that Israel would be sifted or dispersed among all nations. It came to pass.
It was prophesied that Israel would abide many days without a king. This prophecy came to pass.
It was prophesied that Israel would abide many days without a sacrifice. It happened.
It was prophesied that Israel would serve other gods. It came to pass.
God's Word gives us the definition of what the church is. Then God's Word outlines for us seven churches-ref Rev 2:1 to 3:22. The first of the seven churches began at Pentecost. Over the past 1900 plus years, prophecies listed in these churches have come to pass. This time period brings us up through the first six churches. During the course of these churches, God's Word gave us specific events that would happen. He gave us information about persecutions that would happen during various time periods. He gave us information of how Satan would attack the church through severe persecutions, a lessened amount of persecutions, and false doctrines. From these churches more information is derived about Jesus, about good and bad things regarding each church, about things that would happen, and what to do. Exhortations were given, and promises to them that overcame. Rewards were listed, followed with words such as, "If any man have ears to hear, let him hear," which would characterize the entire church.
was prophesied that one day, many days in the future, that Israel would be reborn
into a nation. This event happened exactly as was prophesied. The rebirth of
Israel represents a time clock, signifying the beginning of a countdown. From
this event, we entered into a time period called the latter days. The generation
of the rebirth of Israel would include Jesus actually returning to this earth,
and the gathering together of the elect.
Beginning with the rebirth of Israel, the Scriptures give us approximately 360 signs or prophecies to look for that would indicate an event called the Tribulation was about to begin; yet the Bible foretells that despite all the signs, despite the overwhelming evidence that God’s Word has given us, that most people would not believe these things.
These prophetic events that a person could look for once Israel was reborn as a nation, include: prophecies about Israel, Jerusalem, the church, a false religion, religious deception, what people would be like, Russia, Ethiopia, Egypt, Libya, other nations and cities, and the Far East. These prophecies also include: gold and silver, a place for worship in Israel, the currency in Israel, inventions, the European Economic Community, specific events and things that would happen, and miscellaneous other prophecies. Since the rebirth of Israel on May 14, l948, one by one, this huge list of over 300 prophecies have come to pass; yet despite this overwhelming, unmistakable proof from God's Word, people still refuse to understand that the worst time, since man has been on the earth, is about to happen. It is called the Tribulation.
prior to the Tribulation coming about, the Rapture of God’s people will take
place. The number that will be raptured will be far fewer than most people might
think. The Bible unmistakably portrays the true born-again believers in heaven
before the throne of God, prior to the Antichrist coming forth, and the Tribulation
Regarding the Rapture (which includes Jesus coming in the air), it is written, BUT AS THE DAYS OF NOE WERE, SO SHALL ALSO THE COMING OF THE SON OF MAN BE. FOR AS IN THE DAYS THAT WERE BEFORE THE FLOOD THEY WERE EATING AND DRINKING, MARRYING AND GIVING IN MARRIAGE, UNTIL THE DAY THAT NOE ENTERED INTO THE ARK, AND KNEW NOT UNTIL THE FLOOD CAME, AND TOOK THEM ALL AWAY; SO SHALL ALSO THE COMING OF THE SON OF MAN BE-Mt 24:37-39.
(For) THE WICKED SHALL DO WICKEDLY: AND NONE OF THE WICKED SHALL UNDERSTAND; BUT THE WISE SHALL UNDERSTAND-Dan 12:10. (For) THE LORD KNOWETH HOW TO DELIVER THE GODLY OUT OF TEMPTATIONS, AND TO RESERVE THE UNJUST UNTO THE DAY OF JUDGMENT TO BE PUNISHED-2 Pe 2:9. (For regarding the unjust) I GAVE HER SPACE TO REPENT...AND SHE REPENTED NOT. (Therefore) I WILL CAST HER INTO...GREAT TRIBULATION, EXCEPT THEY REPENT OF THEIR DEEDS-Rev 2:21,22.
BUT YE, BRETHREN, ARE NOT IN DARKNESS, THAT THAT DAY (the Rapture) SHOULD OVERTAKE YOU AS A THIEF. YE ARE ALL THE CHILDREN OF LIGHT, AND THE CHILDREN OF THE DAY: WE ARE NOT OF THE NIGHT, NOR OF DARKNESS. THEREFORE LET US NOT SLEEP, AS DO OTHERS; BUT LET US WATCH-1 Thes 5:4-6. BLESSED ARE THOSE SERVANTS, WHOM THE LORD WHEN HE COMETH SHALL FIND WATCHING-Lk 12:37. For the Lord has given us many things to look for, AND WHEN THESE THINGS BEGIN TO COME TO PASS, THEN LOOK UP, AND LIFT UP YOUR HEADS; FOR YOUR REDEMPTION DRAWETH NIGH-Lk 21:28. (Because) UNTO THEM THAT LOOK FOR HIM SHALL HE APPEAR THE SECOND TIME-Heb 9:28.
(For) BEHOLD, I SHEW YOU A MYSTERY-1 Cor 15:51. (For) AT MIDNIGHT THERE WAS A CRY MADE-Mt 25:6; (There was) A SHOUT, WITH THE VOICE OF THE ARCHANGEL-1 Thes 4:16; BEHOLD, THE BRIDEGROOM COMETH; GO YE OUT TO MEET HIM. THEN ALL THOSE VIRGINS AROSE, AND TRIMMED THEIR LAMPS. AND THE FOOLISH SAID UNTO THE WISE, GIVE US OF YOUR OIL; FOR OUR LAMPS ARE GONE OUT. BUT THE WISE ANSWERED, SAYING, NOT SO; LEST THERE BE NOT ENOUGH FOR US AND YOU: BUT GO YE RATHER TO THEM THAT SELL, AND BUY FOR YOURSELVES. AND WHILE THEY WENT TO BUY, THE BRIDEGROOM CAME-Mt 25:6-10. FOR THIS WE SAY UNTO YOU...THAT WE WHICH ARE ALIVE AND REMAIN UNTO THE COMING OF THE LORD SHALL NOT PREVENT THEM WHICH ARE ASLEEP-1 Thes 4:15.
(For know this), WE SHALL NOT ALL SLEEP (or die)-1 Cor 15:51; FOR THE LORD HIMSELF SHALL DESCEND FROM HEAVEN WITH...THE TRUMP OF GOD-1 Thes 4:16; (and) IN A MOMENT, IN THE TWINKLING OF AN EYE, AT THE LAST TRUMP-1 Cor 15:52; (ref Num 10); FOR THE TRUMPET SHALL SOUND-1 Cor 15:52; AND THE DEAD IN CHRIST SHALL RISE FIRST-1 Thes 4:16; AND THE DEAD SHALL BE RAISED INCORRUPTIBLE-1 Cor 15:52.
THEN WE WHICH ARE ALIVE AND REMAIN SHALL BE CAUGHT UP-1 Thes 4:17; as it is written, AND THE FIRST VOICE WHICH I HEARD WAS AS IT WERE OF A TRUMPET TALKING WITH ME; WHICH SAID, COME UP HITHER-Rev 4:1. (And we shall be caught up) TOGETHER WITH THEM IN THE CLOUDS, TO MEET THE LORD IN THE AIR: AND SO SHALL WE EVER BE WITH THE LORD-1 Thes 4:17; (And this know, that they which) WERE READY WENT IN WITH HIM TO THE MARRIAGE: AND THE DOOR WAS SHUT-Mt 25:10.
THEN SHALL TWO BE IN THE FIELD; THE ONE SHALL BE TAKEN, AND THE OTHER LEFT. TWO WOMEN SHALL BE GRINDING AT THE MILL; THE ONE SHALL BE TAKEN, AND THE OTHER LEFT-Mt 24:40,41.
I TELL YOU, IN THAT NIGHT THERE SHALL BE TWO MEN IN ONE BED; THE ONE SHALL BE TAKEN, AND THE OTHER SHALL BE LEFT. TWO WOMEN SHALL BE GRINDING TOGETHER; THE ONE SHALL BE TAKEN, AND THE OTHER LEFT. TWO MEN SHALL BE IN THE FIELD; THE ONE SHALL BE TAKEN, AND THE OTHER LEFT-Lk 17:34-36. THEY ASKED HIM, "WHERE, LORD?" HE ANSWERED, "WHEREVER THERE'S A DEAD BODY, THAT'S WHERE THE VULTURES GATHER"-Lk 17:37 JNT.
the twinkling of an eye) WE SHALL BE CHANGED. FOR THIS CORRUPTIBLE MUST PUT
ON INCORRUPTION, AND THIS MORTAL MUST PUT ON IMMORTALITY-1 Cor 15:52,53; (because)
FLESH AND BLOOD CANNOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD; NEITHER DOTH CORRUPTION INHERIT
INCORRUPTION-1 Cor 15:50. (For we groan) AS WITH THE PAINS OF CHILDBIRTH...TO
HAVE OUR WHOLE BODIES REDEEMED AND SET FREE-Ro 8:22,23 JNT. FOR WE KNOW THAT
IF OUR EARTHLY HOUSE OF THIS TABERNACLE WERE DISSOLVED, WE HAVE A BUILDING OF
GOD, AN HOUSE NOT MADE WITH HANDS, ETERNAL IN THE HEAVENS. FOR IN THIS WE GROAN,
EARNESTLY DESIRING TO BE CLOTHED UPON WITH OUR HOUSE WHICH IS FROM HEAVEN-2
THERE IS ONE GLORY OF THE SUN, AND ANOTHER GLORY OF THE MOON, AND ANOTHER GLORY OF THE STARS: FOR ONE STAR DIFFERETH FROM ANOTHER STAR IN GLORY. SO ALSO IS THE RESURRECTION OF THE DEAD. IT IS SOWN IN CORRUPTION; IT IS RAISED IN INCORRUPTION: IT IS SOWN IN DISHONOUR; IT IS RAISED IN GLORY: IT IS SOWN IN WEAKNESS; IT IS RAISED IN POWER: IT IS SOWN A NATURAL BODY; IT IS RAISED A SPIRITUAL BODY. THERE IS A NATURAL BODY, AND THERE IS A SPIRITUAL BODY. AND SO IT IS WRITTEN, THE FIRST MAN ADAM WAS MADE A LIVING SOUL; THE LAST ADAM WAS MADE A QUICKENING SPIRIT. THE SPIRITUAL DID NOT COME FIRST, BUT THE NATURAL, AND AFTER THAT THE SPIRITUAL-NIV. THE FIRST MAN IS OF THE EARTH, EARTHY: THE SECOND MAN IS THE LORD FROM HEAVEN. AS IS THE EARTHY, SUCH ARE THEY ALSO THAT ARE EARTHY: AND AS IS THE HEAVENLY, SUCH ARE THEY ALSO THAT ARE HEAVENLY. AND AS WE HAVE BORNE THE IMAGE OF THE EARTHY, WE SHALL ALSO BEAR THE IMAGE OF THE HEAVENLY-1 Cor 15:41-49.
AFTERWARD CAME ALSO THE OTHER VIRGINS, SAYING, LORD, LORD, OPEN TO US. BUT HE ANSWERED AND SAID, VERILY I SAY UNTO YOU, I KNOW YOU NOT. WATCH THEREFORE, FOR YE KNOW NEITHER THE DAY NOR THE HOUR WHEREIN THE SON OF MAN COMETH-Mt 25:11-13.
STRIVE TO ENTER IN AT THE STRAIT GATE: FOR MANY, I SAY UNTO YOU, WILL SEEK TO ENTER IN, AND SHALL NOT BE ABLE. WHEN ONCE THE MASTER OF THE HOUSE IS RISEN UP, AND HATH SHUT TO THE DOOR, AND YE BEGIN TO STAND WITHOUT, AND TO KNOCK AT THE DOOR, SAYING, LORD, LORD, OPEN UNTO US; AND HE SHALL ANSWER AND SAY UNTO YOU, I KNOW YOU NOT WHENCE YE ARE-Lk 13:24,25.
In the Scriptures, the true born-again Christians are pictured in heaven, immediately after the resurrection and Rapture. After this, the first seal is opened. As it is written, 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. AND I BEHELD, AND I HEARD THE VOICE OF MANY ANGELS ROUND ABOUT THE THRONE AND THE BEASTS AND THE ELDERS: AND THE NUMBER OF THEM WAS TEN THOUSAND TIMES TEN THOUSAND, AND THOUSANDS OF THOUSANDS-Rev 5:9,11.
And as the saints are with Jesus, HE SHALL GIRD HIMSELF, AND MAKE THEM TO SIT DOWN TO MEAT, AND WILL COME FORTH AND SERVE THEM-Lk 12:37.
WHEREFORE COMFORT ONE ANOTHER WITH THESE WORDS-1 Thes 4:18. There is comfort in looking for the Rapture, the blessed hope. There is no comfort in looking for the Tribulation.
Tribulation will happen as we near the end of the generation of the rebirth
of Israel. (The last three and a half years of this seven year period, as outlined
by Daniel, is sometimes called the Great Tribulation.)
As soon as the Rapture takes place, a man of sin (whom we call the Antichrist) comes forth. A covenant is signed between he and Israel, and others, which begins the Tribulation, also called the seventieth week of Daniel. During this horrible period of God’s wrath, Russia, Iran, and other nations will come against Israel. Many nations will be involved. One third of trees are burned up. All green grass is burned up. One third of the sea will become blood. One third of the creatures in the sea will die. One third of the ships are destroyed. One third of the waters become wormwood (or poisoned, or radioactive). One third of the day, and also the night, is darkened. One fourth of the world’s population will die. Food prices will soar. Earthquakes, famines, and pestilences will continue increasing as birth pangs of a woman. Crime and hate will abound. One hundred and forty and four thousand male, virgin Jews come forth to evangelize. Many people will get saved, but of these, many will be killed by decapitation for their faith in Jesus Christ. There will also be many false Christs and false prophets. A one world, false religion which God calls MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH will increase. This religion has existed for hundreds of years, and exists today. The nations of the world have become intoxicated with her false teachings. A temple in Jerusalem will be built.
At approximately the midst of the Tribulation, the Antichrist will be killed with a wound in the head by a weapon; but his deadly wound will be healed. He will come back to life. He will proclaim himself to be God, and move into the temple in Jerusalem. The sacrifices at the temple will be stopped. All that dwell on the earth shall worship the Antichrist, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb. During the last three and a half years (called the Great Tribulation), world conditions will continue to get worse and worse. A one world system will be set up. The Antichrist shall make war against the saints, and will overcome them. Power is given to the Antichrist over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. A false prophet appears, that will do great wonders. The abomination of desolation occurs. An image of the Antichrist (also called the beast) will be set on a wing of the temple. If a person does not worship it, he will be beheaded. The elect Jews now flee for their lives to a place where God will hide them, and take care of them during the last three and a half years. People will be required to take the mark of the Antichrist or the number of his name, which is 666, in or on their forehead or right hand. If they refuse, they cannot buy or sell. Two prophets of God will appear. One of them is Elijah. These have the power to shut up heaven that it rain not during their days on the earth. They have the power to bring all kinds of plagues on the earth.
Multitudes will be slain for the Word of God. Locusts will sting men with a sting like a scorpion. It will be so bad that men will seek death, and shall not find it. There will be terrible sores upon men. The rivers and fountains will become blood. Men will be scorched with great heat. Earthquakes continue to get worse and worse. Diseases will continue to get worse and worse. Two hundred million troops will march to Israel from the east, and cross the dried up Euphrates River. One third more of the earth’s population will be killed. After 42 months, the two prophets of God will be killed. People will rejoice, but then, after three and a half days, they will arise, and ascend up to heaven. Great fear falls on them which see this. Men will be so terrified, that their hearts will fail, as they consider what is about to happen. Multitudes will hide in the rocks and say, "FALL ON US AND HIDE US FROM...HIM (Jesus)…FOR THE GREAT DAY OF HIS WRATH IS COME; AND WHO SHALL BE ABLE TO STAND?"-Rev 6:16,17.
after the Tribulation, the Battle of Armageddon will explode. It lasts one day.
The kings and armies of the earth are gathered to make war against Jesus, as
He returns. Jesus Christ will return as the King of kings and Lord of lords.
All His saints will return with Him. If He had not returned exactly when He
did, there should be no life left on the earth. The greatest earthquake in mankind’s
history occurs. The cities of the nations fall. Every island fled away. The
mountains were not found. There is great hail out of heaven, every stone about
the weight of 70 to l00 pounds. The earth will move out of its place. There
are so few people left alive that a child could write the number.
From the coming forth of the Antichrist, to the time the Battle of Armageddon explodes, there will be seven seal, seven trumpet, and seven vial judgments, and many others as well. Never in the history of the world, since man has existed, has there been such a horrible time as will come very shortly.
AND SO ALL ISRAEL SHALL BE SAVED: AS IT IS WRITTEN, THERE SHALL COME OUT OF SION THE DELIVERER, AND SHALL TURN AWAY UNGODLINESS FROM JACOB-Ro 11:26.
Following the return of Jesus Christ to this earth with the saints, Jesus Christ will reign. The elect shall be gathered. The Jews shall be gathered to their own land. The Lord will plant them.
The nations shall be gathered as the judgment of the nations shall take place (which is also called "the throne of glory"). All that are left alive, who took the mark and worshipped the image, will perish. All that followed Jesus and survived will go into the Millennium. The judgment of the fallen angels may also be held at this time.
These previous events are only a few of the hundreds that will soon take place.
Israel reborn, the latter days.
Over 300 signs and prophecies would take place.
The Rapture will happen.
A treaty will be confirmed by the person we refer to as the Antichrist with Israel and others.
The Tribulation begins, also known as the seventieth week of Daniel. This is generally considered to be a seven year period.
the Tribulation, the Battle of Armageddon explodes. Jesus Christ returns
with all His saints. The Antichrist and false prophet are cast
alive into the lake of fire. Satan is chained for one thousand years, so he can deceive the nations no longer till the thousand years be fulfilled.
Jesus will reign and rule as King of kings and Lord of lords for 1000
years. There will be peace on the earth. He will reign over all the
nations and over all the earth. The angels shall ascend and descend
upon Jesus. There will be great rejoicing. David will reign as the king
of Israel. The twelve apostles shall reign over the twelve tribes of
The Lord will raise
up the tabernacle of David which is fallen down. Jesus will dwell in the
holy mountain, Mount Zion. Mount Zion will be in the height of Israel,
and all nations shall flow unto it. All kings and nations shall worship
and serve Jesus. The Law shall go forth from Jerusalem, and the earth
will be full of the knowledge of the Lord. Offerings will also be brought.
Satan is let loose for a little season, and goes forth to deceive the nations once again. He gathers them together to battle. They surround the camp of the saints and the beloved city. Fire comes down from God out of heaven, and devours them. The devil is cast into the lake of fire.
NEXT THE HEAVENS AND EARTH
THE GREAT WHITE THRONE JUDGMENT IS HELD
THERE IS A NEW HEAVEN AND EARTH,
THERE IS NEW JERUSALEM AND ETERNITY
heavens and the earth pass away.
The great white throne judgment is held. Hell delivered up the dead. Death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. Those multiple billions of people that rejected Jesus shall be in the lake of fire, tormented day and night for ever, and ever, and ever, and ever. There will be no pardon and no escape.
The Scriptures tell us about His enemies becoming His footstool.
A new heaven and a new earth come forth.
The New Jerusalem comes forth, whose builder and maker is God.
Jesus shall deliver up the kingdom to God, even the Father.
The former things shall no longer be remembered.
So shall the saints ever be with the Lord. It is written, EYE HATH NOT SEEN, NOR EAR HEARD, NEITHER HAVE ENTERED INTO THE HEART OF MAN, THE THINGS WHICH GOD HATH PREPARED FOR THEM THAT LOVE HIM-1 Cor 2:9.
This may all sound like a fairy tale, but remember, there are approximately 10,000 prophecies in the Bible—every single one up to this time has come true, without a single exception. THE FOOL HATH SAID IN HIS HEART, THERE IS NO GOD-Ps 14:1.
