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 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.
Spiritual restorations are not spiritual revivals. According to Scripture, spiritual revivals have always been the times of vast outpourings of the Holy Spirit. In the Holy Bible, there are four great outpourings (spiritual revivals) of the Holy Spirit that are found in the Book of Acts. Moreover, spiritual revivals or outpourings of the Holy Spirit ONLY poured out on willing and cooperative reborn and saved souls.
The Holy Spirit seals believers in Christ. Father God allows the Holy Spirit to seal Christ’s followers so that they can feel safe and secure in God’s Love, Power, and Promises. This sealing accomplishes Father God’s sign, sealed, and delivered spiritual objectives.
Even though all believers in Christ are promised eternal life, all believers must understand that believing is more than giving intellectual assent to Christ’s Existence or His Redemptive Work. Believing also means Christ’s Ekklesia (His One Body of Believers or One Community of Faith Believers) is His collective Bride who uses everything He gave to Her to help Her become His saintly Overcomers.
Let us courageously, powerfully, and godly live to the fullest the lives Father God has allowed us to have at such a time as this. That is the best way we can thank Him for letting us see 2018.
Most believers in Christ today call themselves an epithet that neither Christ Jesus nor His first-century Disciples turned Apostles say in the Holy Bible followers of Christ should call themselves. They call themselves “Christians.” Most believers in Christ today also claim to worship God according to the established ways of their organized religion, faith, or belief that neither Christ Jesus nor His first-century Disciples turned Apostles declare in the Holy Bible are how Father God wants followers of Christ to worship Him. These believers worship Father God according to the ways that were established by man-made organized “Christianity.”
Glorification is sanctification’s final stage—perfected souls and spirits in bodies that are completely free of sin. Glorified bodies are given to every saint who has overcome the world by developing a holy, righteous, and Christ-like spiritual lifestyle.
The Holy Spirit’s spiritual excellence (Oil of anointing or divine empowerment) is an invisible, intangible, supernatural preparedness that God freely gives to His true saints. In other words, this Oil of anointing cannot be bought with worldly possessions, because no human can duplicate the Holy Spirit’s spiritual excellence (Oil of anointing or divine empowerment).
Things aren’t always as they seem, and God, despite how things look at present, is still in control. This saying is important to remember whenever we are facing any natural disasters.
