ALL the Hebrew and Roman religious leaders’ traditions of men that have been added to the Word of God are why so many believers in Christ who will be living right before the Tribulation Period begins will be so unprepared and unalert. They will be the carnal believers and the natural men and women (unbelievers – Jews and Gentiles) who will miss the Rapture and end up suffering during the Tribulation Period.
The Pharisees or Sadducees’ leaven (their spiritual pride and religious hypocrisy) spiritually, morally, emotionally, and physically alters the internal and external characteristics of the lives around them. In other words, a spiritually proud religious hypocrite swiftly poisons the inward emotions and attitudes of other individuals. Additionally, a spiritually proud religious hypocrite’s outward behaviors always dishonors, disrespects, and diminishes the “much good” that genuinely holy and righteous people do. That’s why believers today still need to watch out for the Pharisees and Sadducees’ leaven, for it rots within and affects without.
No person who is of “sound” mind would want to experience any of the increasing in intensity and frequency horrors that are to take place during the end times. Predicted in the Old and New Testaments is the unprecedented dreadfulness (Wrath of God) that will start in the first 3½ years of Daniel’s 70th Week (missing 7 years) and continue through the last 3½ years of said Week. The second half of Daniel’s 70th Week also is known as the Time of Jacob’s Trouble. Sadly, there will be too many vacillating, unprepared believers and far too many hardhearted, committed unbelievers who will be left on this Earth to live or die during these 7 years of Tribulation. That’s why everyone who needs to do so should get his or her “house” in order, NOW, because Daniel’s 70th Week is just around the corner, and it not only will include the Time of Jacob’s Trouble but also the worst of all the wars there ever has been, or ever will be—the Battle of Armageddon!
