By contending for the faith, with the aid of the Holy Spirit, and by staying close – via the Holy Spirit – to the only One who is able to keep believers in Yeshua from falling, Yeshua’s believers will be able not only to survive apostasy but also able to thrive as holy overcomers in spite of the fact that apostasy is everywhere in today’s world. Selah . . .
The reasons why so many Christians who say they are saved, born-again believers of Yeshua will miss the pre-Tribulation Rapture are because they will not take to heart the Scriptures that warn them about their need to get prepared, stay ready, and stay alert – keep looking out for Yeshua’s Return – and because they don’t believe in a pre-Tribulation Rapture.
The pre-Trib Rapture is the event in which Christ returns to the earth but stays in the air and on a cloud. He will return to remove all His saints/overcomers from the earth. The Second Coming (the Second Advent) is the event in which Christ returns to the earth (with the clouds – with His Host of raptured saints/the armies of Heaven). He will return to bring the Tribulation Period to an end by defeating the Antichrist and his evil world empire in the Battle of Armageddon.
God’s powerful delusion will support so many people’s current beliefs in aliens and alien abductions. Apparently, God will strengthen their ungodly beliefs with His alien-like Divine Judgments (His Wrath) – the LOCUSTS and the HORSES and their RIDERS – that He pours out on the earth during the Tribulation Period.
Through Christ, it is now possible for divorced Ephraim (the entire Northern Kingdom) to become the prophesied multitude of nations – the fullness of Gentiles – and not just be scattered among them. That’s right! The fullness of Gentiles refers to the House of Israel (Ephraim) that was scattered and completely absorbed by the world’s Gentile nations and, thus, became Gentiles themselves.
God established that three of His seven commanded appointed times (feast days) – First Fruits, Pentecost, and Tabernacles – would be associated with two different grain harvests and one fruit of the vine harvest that took place annually in Israel. Moreover, God established that these three crops (barley, wheat, and grapes) would also depict, spiritually speaking, three classes of people. The Barley represents the holy and saintly overcomers, the Wheat represents the carnal believers, and the Grapes mostly represent the unsaved unbelievers.
The second, third, and fourth beasts in The Book of Daniel aren’t who most people think they are. They are Media, Persia, and the Islamic Caliphate of the Ottoman Empire. Furthermore, because the biblical picture consistently points to the Middle East, and, since the only empire that crushed, devoured, and trampled all the regions of Babylon, Media, and Persia — and far more — is the Islamic Caliphate of the Ottoman Empire, there will not be a Revived Roman Empire. Additionally, the Mark of the Beast will not be any implanted RFID or computer chip. The Mark of the Beast will be a visible mark that is similar to the one that prevented Cain from receiving an immediate death. In Cain’s case, Father YeHoVaH physically marked him. In the Left Behinders’ case, it is the False Prophet who will make sure that the Left Behinders receive the physical mark that prevents them from suffering an immediate death.
The Battle of Gog and the Battle of Armageddon are not two separate events. These are just different names to the same concluding campaign of the Antichrist or Gog’s Apocalypse War. In fact, this final battle is the very same scenario—with a few variations—that is repeated by the majority of the Old Testament’s minor and major prophets, by Christ Jesus in the four Gospels, and in the New Testament’s Scriptures written by apostles Paul and John. For this reason, it also should be irrefutable that the same evil end-time world ruler of the revived Islamic Caliphate system of the revived Turkish-Ottoman Empire not only is called Gog but also the Antichrist, as well as the Assyrian, the King of the North, and the Little Horn. For sure, this evil end-time world leader is known by many other appellations. Additionally, it should be irrefutable that the Battles of Gog and Armageddon are the same event that also has different names.
Barley is the grain that was grown in ancient Israel that symbolizes perfection—the perfect firstfruits offering, the perfect sacrifice, and the perfect Bride of Christ. Several Scriptures prove, again and again, that there are two grain harvests that belong to the Lord—the Firstfruits harvest and a subsequent harvest (the Barley harvest and then the Wheat harvest). The Word of God also promises there will be two spiritual harvests—the harvest of Barley Christians and the harvest of Wheat Believers, with the latter being larger than the former. Just like the natural Barley harvest comes first with the natural Wheat harvest following, the Bride of Christ’s pre-Tribulation spiritual harvest will come first, and it will be followed by the Tribulation Period’s finally sold out for Christ surviving Wheat Believers’ end of the Age of Grace spiritual harvest.
Twenty-first century’s human beings definitely are technologically competent to do whatever they imagine to do. This truth is ever-so evident wherever there are human enhancement experiments (genetic manipulations), and evident wherever present-day scientists are searching for interdimensional portals (seeking time travel)—the former of which is happening in laboratories all over the world; the latter is happening primarily in CERN near Geneva, Switzerland.
