IT WILL SOON BE OVER, ALL BUT THE SHOUT (Eight Signs in Israel)
(SPRINGTIME IN HEAVEN!!!!!) IT’S EXCITING TO WATCH THE END SHOWING UP IN SO MANY WAYS. The only reason we have not left yet in the Rapture is our Father’s patience for the lost world. James told us, “Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain..” (James 5:7) Christians may not be looking for the Rapture, but the devil sure is, big time. Every conceivable effort and every dart at the enemy’s disposal is being directed against this event.
The devil knows that at the Rapture, immediately Michael will launch a heavenly war to cast him out of the heavens. “And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.” (Revelation 12:7-9) This is a grand occasion for the heavens and all The Lord’s Saints, but a dark time for the world.
There is no way to doubt the events in the Middle East is right on target for this prophetic time. Several things are happening to show how ready the center of all world events (Israel) is at this moment.
1. Her enemies are marshaling their forces.
2. Israel is preparing her war machinery.
3. The world is raging against all Jews.
4. Angels are keeping watch from the city walls.
5.. Devoted Jews are talking of the Messiah.
6. Temple devotees are preparing for the next Jewish temple.
7. Godly Christians are praying for the peace of Jerusalem.
8. Bible believers are looking forward to the King of Kings entering the Eastern Gate.
The Rapture is going to signal that the Antichrist is ready. “And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.” (Revelation 13:1-6)
The truth of the Rapture will soon have no enemies. The world will believe He has come and taken His chosen Bride. I was taught the idea that the Rapture will be secret and the world will not know it happened. The idea came from the Scriptures as this wonderful verse. “But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.” (II Peter 3:10) This is a warning that His coming will be sudden and unannounced. We apply too much when we think that it will not shake this world to its foundation.
The most powerful subject in Holy Scripture is, “YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN”. Yet it is so reduced in today’s Church that the majority of Church members do not know the transformation that occurs. If a person is “BORN AGAIN” they are “New Creatures In Christ”. Please take time to listen to the Sermons I am preaching on this subject. “For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.” (I Corinthians 1:21) God”s plan for saving souls is the preaching of the Gospel and there is no backup plan.
