HAVE YOU BEEN TO GETHSEMANE? ……Please read this!

Have you ever visited Gethsemane recently? It’s inspiring and very refreshing there. There is no other place on earth as pleasant and peaceful as this wonderful place called Gethsemane. The Gethsemane in topic here is not a country, state or a street; it's not a church or physical place. It’s a spiritual place that every serious minded Christian and every one who cares to make heaven must be visiting as the situation demands.

Gethsemane is a place where you surrender your struggles unto God and receive strength in return to see you through in your onward journey to eternal life. It’s a point where you surrender your ways, your wills, your wish and your wants to God and you accept His will and word into your life.

No pretense, struggle is natural and human, it was applicable to Jesus Christ likewise during His earthly ministration as He was about to move forward to Calvary for our work of redemption. At Gethsemane, He expressed His struggle to God but He surrendered His struggle, His wish and want, to God’s will. Have you been struggling with your life, living as you want? You urgently need to surrender all to Jesus now and let Him give you a brand new life with eternal value.

Have you been struggling with a particular sin in your life? Rising and falling? Maybe you think it doesn’t matter or you can’t help give it up? Have you been struggling with un-forgiveness or any matter in your life and you find it hard to let go? You need to surrender all to Him now, all, not 99%; so that you don’t loose all. You repent, confess and ask Him to take over from here.

Have you being struggling with God’s will in your personal life? For your marriage, ministry, etc? No pretense, it’s not easy but it’s easier to surrender to God than to struggle. Jesus understands, He has been in such situation before and He wants you to visit Gethsemane as He did; where He surrendered all to His Father’s will saying, “Not as I will, but as You will.” Do not continue to struggle with God's will for your life, it is a sorrowful life.

When we surrender our struggles to God in sincere prayer and confession, He gives us the strength that will sustain and hold us through it all, no matter how difficult. And at the end we shall sing songs of praise and victory! Take it all to God in prayer with all sincerity and surrender; He is waiting for you right there!

“Then Jesus came with them to a place called Gethsemane, and said to the disciples, “Sit here while I go and pray over there.” 37 And He took with Him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and He began to be sorrowful and deeply distressed. 38 Then He said to them, “My soul is exceedingly sorrowful, even to death. Stay here and watch with Me.” 39 He went a little farther and fell on His face, and prayed, saying, “O My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will.” - Matthew 26:36-39

“Then an angel appeared to Him from heaven, strengthening Him. 44 And being in agony, He prayed more earnestly. Then His sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground.” – Luke 22:43, 44

" Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need." Hebrews 4:16.

Dedication of the House of David
By: Chris McCann

Psalm 30 A Psalm and Song at the dedication of the house of David.

David is a great type of the Lord Jesus Christ. At times the Lord uses the name David but Christ is in view:

Ezekiel 34:23 And I will set up one shepherd over them, and he shall feed them, even my servant David; he shall feed them, and he shall be their shepherd.
Psalm 30's inscription: "dedication of the house of David" is spiritually pointing to Christ. It is a psalm given for the dedication of Christ's house.

David had wanted to build the Lord a house. But God refused him and said to David:

1 Chronicles 17:10 ...Furthermore I tell thee that the LORD will build thee an house. 11 And it shall come to pass, when thy days be expired that thou must go to be with thy fathers, that I will raise up thy seed after thee, which shall be of thy sons; and I will establish his kingdom. 12 He shall build me an house, and I will stablish his throne for ever.
God would build David (Christ) a house. And His throne would be established forever (an eternal throne can only refer to the throne of Christ).
Solomon thought that the physical house of God (temple) he was building was the fulfillment of the promise given to his father. But it was only an illustration of the house the Seed of David would build.

In the N.T. many references to Jesus as being the Son of David indicate He was the promised Messiah. These verses in the gospel of Luke especially match up well with the things God said to David in 1 Chronicles 17:

Luke 1:31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. 32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: 33 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.
SPIRITUAL HOUSE

The Bible plainly tells us that Jesus was indeed building a spiritual house made up of all those He would save:

1 Peter 2:5 Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house,...

And,

Hebrews 3:4 For every house is builded by some man; but he that built all things is God. 5 And Moses verily was faithful in all his house, as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were to be spoken after; 6 But Christ as a son over his own house; whose house are we,

Throughout time, since the fall of man into sin, the Lord was building His spiritual house. The house of David His Shepherd (Christ).

It is this spiritual house comprised of all that God has saved that is in view in this parable:

Matthew 7:24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: 25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.

Jesus is the Wise man that built His house upon a Rock (Himself). The house is able to weather the storm because of the solid foundation.

(Note: the spiritual house of God was builded upon the foundation of the Lord Jesus' sacrificial offering of Himself. Every time God saved a person it was as though He were adding a another living brick to that house. And since all is built upon Christ it must mean that the foundation was the first thing laid. Christ necessarily had to have died from the foundation of the world to first lay the foundation for all the living stones that would be laid upon it over the course of history. In other words: the fact that the Bible says God built a spiritual house and Jesus is the foundation of the house all must have been built upon proves that Christ truly was the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. The Rock for the house was laid at that point. Then men could be saved and built upon the foundation. Abel was saved and added to the foundation of Christ. Noah was saved and added as a living stone. Etc, etc.)

DEDICATION ONCE HOUSE IS COMPLETED

Once again we know the Bible reveals Christ was building Himself a spiritual house for an eternal habitation. The historical building of the house of God by Solomon pictures the spiritual house. After several years the house Solomon built was finally finished. The Bible tells us that when it was completed it would be dedicated:

1 Kings 8:63 And Solomon offered a sacrifice of peace offerings, which he offered unto the LORD, two and twenty thousand oxen, and an hundred and twenty thousand sheep. So the king and all the children of Israel dedicated the house of the LORD.
2 Chronicles 7:5 And king Solomon offered a sacrifice of twenty and two thousand oxen, and an hundred and twenty thousand sheep: so the king and all the people dedicated the house of God.
The finished temple is a wonderful historical illustration of the time that would come when God would finish building His spiritual house. At the time of the end the Bible reveals that a great multitude would become saved and come out of the great tribulation period (Revelation 7:9-14). At that point the last of the elect whose names were written in the Lamb's book of life would have been found and saved through the sending forth of the gospel into the world. On May 21, 2011 the great tribulation ended. And therefore the great multitude had been saved. The spiritual house of Christ was completed. For the first time in all the world's history it could be said that the house the Lord Jesus Christ was building was now fully built and established.

LAW FOR LEAVING THE BATTLE IN ORDER TO DEDICATE HOUSE

The Bible is an amazing book. It has written in it relatively obscure and often unusual laws that we read as part of the law of God without fully realizing why they are even in the Bible. One such unusual law is found in the book of Deuteronomy:

Deuteronomy 20:4 For the LORD your God is he that goeth with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you. 5 And the officers shall speak unto the people, saying, What man is there that hath built a new house, and hath not dedicated it? let him go and return to his house, lest he die in the battle, and another man dedicate it.
Deuteronomy 20 gives several battle (war) laws. One of the laws described says that a man that has built a new house without dedicating it may leave the battle and go home to his house to dedicate it. An interesting law, certainly the Lord carefully considers the soldiers' personal life to be an important thing. But since this is the Bible we have to ask the question: why is this law recorded in the holy Scriptures? What is its spiritual significance?

Well, once we consider that the Bible says God is a man of war (Exodus 15:3) and the Hebrew word for "war" is the same word translated as 'battle' in this Deuteronomy 20 passage, we quickly see that this law has application to God Himself.

Actually, Deuteronomy 20:4 says God fights (in the battle) in order to save you:

"...fight for you against your enemies, to save you."

This is exactly what the Lord has been doing throughout the course of this world's history. He has engaged the kingdom of darkness in spiritual warfare in order to deliver His elect people out of their dungeons to sin and Satan:

Revelation 6:2 And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.
Yes God is a man of battle! But the Lord made an allowance through this law in Deuteronomy 20:5 that once a house is newly built, the man of war may leave the battle and go home to dedicate the house. Since the battle God fought in was to "save you" we can quickly see the spiritual principle: as soon as house of the elect is completed the Lord will cease to engage the enemy in spiritual warfare (over the salvation of souls). There is no longer any purpose for God to send forth the gospel to save since everyone to be saved has been saved. Deuteronomy 20:4,5, teaches us that a newly built house and its dedication ties in with the end of the salvation.

BUILT UPON A ROCK

We find something interesting as we return to the parable of the wise man and the house that he built:

Matthew 7:24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: 25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.

Again, the wise man is a picture of Christ. The house is the spiritual house of the elect. And the Rock is also Christ. Notice that the house is said to have been built. It does not say it is in building. The idea presented is not a house under construction. Or that is being added to in any way. But a completed house. It is built. The same Greek word is found used in:

Acts 7:47 But Solomon built him an house.

The Greek word for "built" above is the identical Greek word (and tense) as used in Matthew 7:24. Solomon built him an house is referring to a past event. Solomon built God a house some thousand years earlier than the writing of the book of Acts. Likewise, the wise man (Christ) built his house (whose house are we) upon a Rock (Christ). In order for the house to be completely done it must mean that everyone predestinated to salvation has heard the gospel and has been saved. Only then can it be said that the house is built.

But when will God save the last of the elect and complete His house? The Bible reveals to us that this was accomplished by the date of May 21, 2011. That is the first time in all the history of the world that it could be said that the spiritual house of the Lord Jesus Christ was built.

THE STORM COMES

I have read the short, little parable of the wise man that built his house upon a rock many times before. And yet, never realized its great significance. Through this parable Christ is instructing us concerning what to expect once the house of God is completed:

Matthew 7:25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.

The context of Matthew 7 which leads us into the parable of the wise man and his house points us to the Day of Judgment:

Matthew 7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Many will say "IN THAT DAY Lord, Lord, ..." We quickly see how this ties in with another important passage of Scripture:

Luke 13:25 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:
The time period of those that say: "Lord, Lord" is the time when the door of heaven shuts. And the Bible has locked in the day of May 21, 2011 as the day God shut heaven's door. That's the context of Matthew 7 that leads us directly into the parable of the wise man that built his house on a rock. And it so happens that the Bible insists that the spiritual house of Christ (whose house are we) was completed by the date of May 21, 2011. God sent forth His Word into all the world in an unprecedented manner---never before in all the world's history had a message like the message of Judgment Day occurring on an appointed time been proclaimed and set forth before the forefront of the world's eyes as it was with the declaration of May 21, 2011. Through that worldwide proclamation the Lord saved a great multitude. The last one of the elect became saved sometime before the great tribulation period expired. But then the 8400th day of the great tribulation came and the spiritual structure of God's elect was then completely built. It was then time for God to bring the storm against the house.

STORM BEATS UPON BOTH HOUSES

We haven't discussed the other house mentioned in Matthew 7's parable. It is interesting that God describes a storm that assails BOTH houses. The house of the wise man (Christ) and the house of the foolish man. Both houses experience the identical storm:

Storm beats upon the wise man's house:

Matthew 7:24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: 25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.

Storm beats upon foolish man's house:

Matthew 7:26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: 27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

One of the biggest problems some believers have with understanding the idea of May 21, 2011 being the day in which a spiritual judgment began on the world, is the fact that the elect were not taken out of the world before the judgment started. It has been widely taught in the churches, by the reformers, and many others, that God's elect will be raptured prior to the judgment that comes upon the unsaved of the world. But as is the case with many other things we have learned since the Lord unsealed His Word the Bible, the Bible teaches something totally different. The Bible teaches that the elect will indeed be upon the earth and living in the world during the Day of Judgment. The parable of the wise man and foolish man that built their houses before the storm came is another proof text that shows us that it has been God's plan all along to leave those He saved in the world to weather the storm of His wrath.

As soon as God newly built His spiritual house He immediately sent the storm of His judgment against it. I'm sure that if you are one of God's elect you have felt the severe trying of your Christian life in these days after the tribulation (since May 21, 2011). There is good reason for all your afflictions, tribulations, struggles, and difficulties that you have certainly been experiencing in one way or another. It is the trial of the house. By the conclusion of this Day of Judgment the foundation of each one of us will be revealed.

THE HOUSE OF THE RIGHTEOUS SHALL STAND

The book of Proverbs says,

Proverbs 12:7 The wicked are overthrown, and are not: but the house of the righteous shall stand.

As we think about the two houses in Matthew 7's parable we can see exactly what this proverb is saying. Christ is the Righteous One. The house He built will stand. The house of God's elect will come through the storm. They will endure to the end of this period of Judgment Day. The house of the foolish will not withstand the storm. The storm will destroy their house and overthrow it. And at the end they will be annihilated and no longer have existence.

The wicked cannot stand (endure) before God.

Psalm 1:4 The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away. 5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.

Revelation 6:17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

Malachi 3:2 But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner's fire, and like fullers' soap:

But the child of God. The individual that is a living stone and thereby a part of Christ's house (the house of the righteous) shall stand through the storm of God's judgment:

Ephesians 6:13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Luke 21:35 For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.
36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

Romans 14:10 But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.

TO GOD BE THE GLORY

We often hear people say that there is no reason for God to have left His people in the world to go through the final judgment. They say it serves no purpose. And yet as we examine the parable of the wise man that built his house upon a rock, we see a very important truth shine forth: as both houses suffer the effects of the storm something glorious is finally revealed.

Luke 6:47 Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like: 48 He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock. 49 But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great.

And,

Matthew 7:25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:
27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
Why did one house stand and the other fall? Was it due to the timber used to build the house? Or was it the strong bricks that allowed the house to resist the power of the storm? No! It had nothing to do with the materials used. It is clear that the wise man's house endured the storm and the foolish man's house did not for one reason only----it was built upon a Rock. The powerful storm reveals the type of foundation each house was built upon. Likewise, this most powerful and awful storm of the pouring out of the wrath of God upon all the inhabitants of the earth, in the Day of Judgment reveals what (or who) each person's foundation truly is.

1 Corinthians 3:9 For we are labourers together with God: ye are God's husbandry, ye are God's building. 10 According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon. 11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. 12 Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; 13 Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is. 14 If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. 15 If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.
At the end of this prolonged period of Judgment Day, God's people will have endured and remain standing together in the spiritual house Christ built.

Hebrews 12:26 Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven. 27 And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain. 28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: 29 For our God is a consuming fire.

"Whom the Son sets free is free indeed."
David Berleue
BEING SET FREE OF BONDAGE
What do the Scriptures say about someone who cannot cease from sin? How do we overcome, and what do we overcome? Should we be like the world in anyway?
John 8:26-36,47; 26 I have many things to say and to judge of you: but he that sent me is true; and I speak to the world those things which I have heard of him.27 They understood not that he spake to them of the Father.28 Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things.29 And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.30 As he spake these words, many believed on him.31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.33 They answered him, We be Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?34 Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.35 And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever.36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.47 He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God (emphasis mine).
What is the “bondage” spoken of here, sin. This is very clear, the Jews said they were in bondage to no one and Jesus said, “whosoever commmitteth sin is a servant (bondman) of sin” and whom the Son sets free (of sin) is free indeed (emphasis mine).
John 17:16-26, 16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.18 As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.19 And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:23 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.24 Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.25 O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.26 And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them (emphasis mine).
Psalms 119:142 Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness and thy law is the truth (emphasis mine).
1 John 3:4-8; 4:6, 4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.5 And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin.6 Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him.7 Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.6 We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error (emphasis mine).
John 15:5-8,10, 5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.8 Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love (emphasis mine).
Matthew 22:11-14, 11 And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment: 12 And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.13 Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness, there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.14 For many are called, but few are chosen (emphasis mine).
2 Peter 2:12-21, 12 But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption;13 And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you;14 Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children:18 For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error.19 While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.20 For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them (emphasis mine).
2 Corinthians 5:16-21, 16 Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more.17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.18 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; 19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God.21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him (emphasis mine).
Galatians 2:20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me (emphasis mine).
Romans 8:9, But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his (emphasis mine).
You, being a called leader in God’s church, do you not know that God via His Holy Spirit frees you from “all” sin? Is God so weak that He cannot make a man sin free? To believe such is “unbelief” even as our forefathers believed not God. 1 John 1:9-10, 9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us” (emphasis mine). This passage of Scripture speaks of before conversion to Christ and after conversion. In order to be forgiven – you must be convicted of sin, confess and repent, then Christ, through the Holy Spirit cleanses you from “all” unrighteousness. 1 John 1, like many other Scripture is twisted and misunderstood by most! I can do “all” things through Christ Jesus” including being free from sin, i.e.; hitting the mark – righteousness by the grace of God through faith (see Ephesians 2:8-9). Remember, if Christ be in you, and you in Christ, you cannot sin. We are not to have a “form” of righteousness and deny the “power” thereof. Do not put God in a box and limit His power to deliver us from the bondage of sin. We are to learn from the children of Israel coming out of Egypt where they did not believe God could give them victory over their enemy which was stronger than they (See Numbers 13). Numbers 13:30-33, 30 “And Caleb stilled the people before Moses, and said, Let us go up at once, and possess it; for we are well able to overcome it.31 But the men that went up with him said, We be not able to go up against the people; for they are stronger than we.32 And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The land, through which we have gone to search it, is a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it are men of a great stature.33 And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight” (emphasis mine). We must be as Caleb and Joshua, believing God will strengthen us to “overcome” even as Christ overcame sin.
Matthew 7:13-15, 13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves (emphasis mine).
2 Timothy 3:16-4:1-5, 16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.4 I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; 2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine. 3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 4And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. 5 But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry (emphasis mine).
Anyone who “cannot” cease from sin is in a world of trouble and about to fall into judgment as stated in 2 Peter 2 above. I say as Caleb said, “my God is able to deliver us” only believe and walk in Truth and in Spirit. Those who are lukewarm will be cast out into the great tribulation and the wrath of God.
Revelation 3:14-22, 14 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.22 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches (emphasis mine).
Revelation 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues (emphasis mine).
I am praying for God to bless all Israel even as the Lord my God has said to me that in these last days there is a remnant of Israel. Even so, I long for the appearing of Christ and the setting up of God’s righteous kingdom. Adam and Eve hid (ashamed) from God because they had sinned. Let us therefore be unashamed at His appearing, confident knowing that we have overcome by grace through faith. Be you not deceived a good tree cannot produce bad fruit; neither can a bad tree produce good fruit! God’s will is that we know only good and not be defiled by knowing both good and evil (See Matthew 7:15-23 and Genesis 2:9). The children of Israel in going up against Ai were defeated because there was sin in the camp (See Joshua 7). Joshua 7:5, 10-12, 5 And the men of Ai smote of them about thirty and six men: for they chased them from before the gate even unto Shebarim, and smote them in the going down: wherefore the hearts of the people melted, and became as water. 10 And the LORD said unto Joshua, Get thee up; wherefore liest thou thus upon thy face?11 Israel hath sinned, and they have also transgressed my covenant which I commanded them: for they have even taken of the accursed thing, and have also stolen, and dissembled also, and they have put it even among their own stuff.12 Therefore the children of Israel could not stand before their enemies, but turned their backs before their enemies, because they were accursed: neither will I be with you any more, except ye destroy the accursed from among you” (emphasis mine). We must remove the leaven, for a little leaven, leavens all.

The Fall of America

Modern Babylon is Falling
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NiDlMoqPbHs

"The fall of America is now going on! She is falling! The cause of her fall is universally known, as it was with ancient Babylon. The fall of ancient Babylon was known. The great prophet Daniel, the mouth-speak of God, was in her midst; and his people (the Jews) were enslaved." #THEM

We say "modern" when we refer to something comparing it to the past. This name "Babylon" begins in Genesis 10:10 (Bible). In Gen. 10:10 it is spelled "B-a-b-e-l." But the same name seems to have changed itself into the name Babylon as we come to the most late-day history of this name.

Babel (Babylon) -- According to the history of Babylon throughout the Bible, Babylon is referred to as something prophesied as having a failure upon her progress and rise.

In Psalms 137:18, David prophesies that Babylon was made to be destroyed. We know of nothing other than the devil and his works that was actually made to be destroyed spiritually.

The devil was not made to exist forever. This is verified by both the Bible and the Holy Qur’an and by all writers and teachers of scripture. So, here, Babylon seems to refer not only to some town or city, but it also seems to refer to a race or a nation of people.

Ancient Babylon, as is known by all of us, was a city under the reign of Nebuchadnezzar and Belshazzar. The fall of Babylon was final. Babylon was never to be rebuilt after her fall. And Babylon was never rebuilt.

This points to the same prophecy of the devil and his kingdom in the Revelation of John (Bible) -- that Satan and his kingdom would be burnt up and it would never rise again.

In the Epistles of Paul there is a prophecy of the devil and his kingdom "that the devil was made for fuel for the fire." The Holy Qur’an refers to this prophecy in these words: "Fuel of hell is men and stones."

So the "fuel of hell is men and stones" -- we do not know why stones are put there with men -- it could be referring to the hardness of the stone and to the hardness of the heart and the hardness of the wicked against truth and righteousness.

The book of Revelation (Bible), it is prophesied here that an angel heralded a warning to the people that Babylon is falling. He then tells why Babylon fells. Babylon fell because she...."is become the habitation of devils, and the hole of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird." The "foul spirit" here is used to tell us that the people of Babylon were filthy.

The term, "a cage" -- this tells us that her cities and her country became a cage for people of filth. The Bible teaches us that the God referred to the people of Sodom and Gomorrah as being people whose doing and work was such that it came up and stunk in His nostrils. (But I think that if the God would get a good smell of this modern wicked filth here He would think the smell of Babylon in His nostrils was like the smell of a flower compared to the wickedness of today.)

Babylon is used as an example for some distant people or their history. According to the prophets, this name Babylon is something that begins in Genesis and ends in Revelation. It is found throughout the entire Bible; therefore, we must not look at it as one personal part. We must not look at it as spelling out to us the ancient only.

In Jeremiah, (Bible) we see a daughter of ancient Babylon. He calls the people "the daughters of ancient Babylon." These people are not the old parents, but they are the daughters from those parents.

The daughter of ancient Babylon refers to a more late and modern civilization whose people give themselves over to the practice of the same evil that the people of Ancient Babylon practiced. But, the modern people were more capable of improving on the practices of the people of ancient Babylon. Therefore, he calls this modern people "the daughters of ancient Babylon."

Isaiah (Bible Is. 47:1) asks this people, the daughter of Babylon, "Come down, and sit in the dust, O virgin daughter of Babylon, sit on the ground: there is no throne....for thou shalt no more be called tender and delicate."

The daughters of Babylon seem to have been a very rich people and they had fallen from a state of great wealth. Isaiah used Babylon as a pretty girl whose lovers used to be plentiful because of her wealth and attractiveness; now she has become ill-looking and has no more attraction upon the people. So he said, sit down in the dust, you are no more respected and attractive to the people.

The prophet Jeremiah warned ancient Babylon that she had a daughter coming. This daughter meets the fate destined for Babylon: she was made to be taken.

Satan was made to be taken and destroyed. Why? Because she had become a place where evil was practiced. She was like a bird that goes out and associates with birds other than her own kind, and then she becomes a hateful bird -- she is hated by the other birds.

Babylon fills herself up with people of that sort. The U.S.A. came into the Western Hemisphere and chased and all but anniliated the Indians. But America invited every one of the poor class who wanted to come from Europe to make themselves at home here in America, the Indians’ country.

All of the poor and evil citizens of Europe, America welcomed them. She invited every race of the earth to come and join in with her in a free country where evil and filth are openly practiced without hindrance.

America has done just this. She has filled up her country with all evil people. America did not allow Islam, or a preacher of Islam, to come into her country; America did not want a good religion taught. America made a religion that she could rule and control herself. He made it attractive to the eyes and ears of those who see and hear it by teaching them basically that there were three Gods instead of teaching them the teachings of Moses and the prophets -- the teaching of one God.

America makes it possible to her God-Head that if one of them does not like you, you may please to another and if one does not let you by, one of the three will. This is contrary to the very law of nature. It is contrary to America’s own mathematical language. In mathematics it is not possible to put three (3) into one (1).

So, America, having this religion, contrary to the truth, today the Author of Truth is condemning her (America). America is nothing but a foul and evil place to live. She has no respect for her own self nor for anyone else. She will disrobe in the public and go nudist.

America even has nudist colonies wherein if you desire to go nude you can do so if the public does not want you.

In the Bible, Rev. 18:4,5 in the Revelation of John, a people are warned to flee out of her. Here, we get the name Babylon to become a modern day people. The voice of an angel warns the people of a certain class to fly out of Babylon. "...Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities" (as being an evil people). So the angel notifies us saying, "Babylon the great is fallen." Today, we see this same thing.

There is no people to be warned to come out of another people that answers to the description of this warning so clearly as the so-called Negro in America of lost-found people of our own Black kind does.

Here, the so-called Negro is warned to fly out of her and not to be partakers of her judgment -- her torment. The angel says, so much evil has she done to thee Rev. 18:6, "Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double."

Allah (God) in the Person of Master Fard Muhammad, to Whom praises are due forever, said to me that there is nothing that you can do to her in the way of evil that could match the evil that she has already done to us.

This is why the Revelator calls the people of modern Babylon "beasts," for they live the kind of life of wild beasts. They have no mercy for themselves or for anyone else. They are made merciless although there are a few who will believe and escape the doom of her brothers. This is their reward just by faith.
But the Black man is created by the Creator, by nature, and he was made blind, deaf and dumb by his kidnaping lord and master, the white slave-master. I do not think that you could overlook the most positive truth here, in this article, that we are now living in the call of angel to us, to come out of her. The "her" here means the wicked world of the devil.

Since we the Black people were kidnaped and forced into this world (of the white race) we must be forced out of this world. It is not that you my people will accept by just having the freedom to accept of your own choice. No. You will have to be punished, divinely beaten and destroyed until you accept Master Fard Muhammad, to Whom praises are Due forever, as your God and Saviour, as I and thousands of my followers are doing.

Do not think that the 144,000 prophesied of, are the only ones who will be saved. The 144,000 refers to the first converts -- "the first ripe fruits to God and His Messenger, the first ripe fruits of God and the Lamb."

Another prophecy warns us that "Babylon is falling never to rise again." In this warning it teaches you that the country and people of modern Babylon will become like the people and city of ancient Babylon that was destroyed and has not risen up a people or a city since its destruction.

I warn you my Black brother and Black sister that unless you believe in Almighty God Allah, Master Fard Muhammad, as I do and receive the name of the holy and perfect God you will never see the hereafter.
The Bible warns you and me that on the final destruction of the wicked, Allah (God) will say to the angel that He has to usher in the judgment to bring His people to Him everyone that is called by His name. For He gives His people His name so that He may save them. So that they may be the servant of Allah (God) as they were the servant of the white slave-master.

As long as you are in the name of the white slave-master, you belong to the white slave-master. And regardless to what you believe and regardless to how mighty you think that you are, you will not be accepted by the Black people and the God of our Black people if you have the name of white people and if you are in the religion called Christianity.

The fall of America is now going on! She is falling! The cause of her fall is universally known, as it was with ancient Babylon. The fall of ancient Babylon was known. The great prophet Daniel, the mouth-speak of God, was in her midst; and his people (the Jews) were enslaved.

In ancient Babylon, according to history, during the reign of Nebuchadnezzar and Belshazzar, the Jews suffered under the ruthless law of these two kings against the Jewish God, religion, and people. These two rulers of ancient Babylon disrespected everything regarding the sacred religion and worship of Jehovah by the Jews.

They took Jerusalem and captured the nobels of Israel. They raided and sacked the city and the Jews’ house of worship. They made mockery and shambles of all that stood for Jehovah and the Jews.

They made mockery of the prophets and the sacred vessels that God had King Solomon make and put in the house of worship of the Jews so that they should be sacred.
Nebuchadnezzar and his nephew (or grandson according to some historians) Belshazzar gave the Jews no honor and no respect whatsoever. Under both of their reigns, God made an example of them to serve as an example of a future people’s opposition and disrespect of God and His people.

Master Fard Muhammad, Who is Allah in Person, wants to make it clear that He has chosen the American so-called Negroes to be His people. The truth that He gives to them and they, themselves, are sacred before His eyes and the world of the righteous. Showing disrespect to God and His people is inviting the punishment and doom of God.
A careful observer or seeker of truth of the time and history being made in these times can easily see how well the history of ancient Babylon, its rulers and its people fits in with the histories of the rulers and peoples of America and England.

America’s enslavement of the so-called Negro and England’s enslavement of people fit so completely with the history of ancient Babylon that it cannot be denied that the ancient history of the Babylonian empire and people was prototypical of America.

America wants everyone to believe she is right in her wicked dealings with the people of earth. With her might of arms commanding the high seas and the land around the glove, she wishes everyone to think she is right in building up arms and forts in foreign countries and on their shores a bristling, deadly navy with guns trained on foreign peoples’ towns and cities, as a dare without any cause. This only shows her pride and daring aggressive acts against people who would like to be at peace.

She has her feet standing on twenty or thirty million Black people, brought out of their native land and people -- from their God and their religion -- by her fathers and have forced them to remain under her feet of power for the past four-hundred years. She deprived them of the knowledge of self, the white race, their own people and their religion.

For three hundred years she did not allow them to worship any religion at all -- not even her own religion of Christianity. She robbed them of their divine rights.
Now with her great show of temptation put before the same slaves and the world at large, she should not be surprised to see and feel the hand of God writing her doom on the wall of her government. — with Shamiyallah Malikah Muhammad.

BIBLICAL PROOF OF A PRE TRIBULATION CATCHING AWAY WITH OLD AND NEW TESTAMENT SCRIPTURES, AND A HEBRAIC PERSPECTIVE. AS A REWARD FOR OVER COMERS, NOT A BLESSING UNTO SALVATION. THESE TRUTH'S ABSOLUTELY DESTROY THE EXAGGERATED GRACE DOCTRINE OF DEVILS THAT HAS WEAKENED THE BODY OF CHRIST AND TAKEN THE POWER OUT OF MANY OF THE CHURCHES THAT WERE KNOWN IN THE PAST TO MOVE IN GOD'S POWER AND ANOINTING. I AGREE WITH THE GRACE TEACHINGS OF PAUL. BUT NOT THE DEMONIC ALTERATIONS OF IT SAYING WE NEED NOT REPENT BECAUSE OUR SONS ARE ALREADY FORGIVEN, WE DON'T NEED TO WALK IN HOLINESS, WE DON'T NEED TO BE IN RIGHT STANDING WITH GOD. FOR THAT MATTER MUCH OF THE CHURCH IS WALKING IN OFFENSE AND UNFORGIVNESS. JESUS SAID IF WE DON'T FORGIVE OTHER THE FATHER WONT FORGIVE YOU. MARK 11:26, MATTHEW 6:15. In John 15 JESUS SAID IF WE DON'T ABIDE IN HIM WE WILL BE CAST IN THE FIRE, (the Trib.) AND IF WE DON'T FOLLOW HIS COMMANDS WE ARE NOT HIS FRIENDS. JAMES 4:4 SAYS A FRIEND OF THE WORLD IS A ENEMY OF GOD. THESE ARE ALL VERSES MODERN DAY GRACE TEACHERS LIKE TO IGNORE. Nahum 1:2 SAYS GOD RESERVES HIS WRATH FOR HIS ENEMIES.

I HAVE NOTICED NEARLY ALL OF THOSE CRITICAL OF THIS POST HAVE NOT BOTHERED TO READ IT. THEY SIMPLY CRITICIZE BASED ON PRE CONCEIVED BELIEFS, AND SOMETIMES POST SOME PET VERSES TAKEN OUT OF CONTEXT OR THAT THEY LACK UNDERSTANDING ON, WITH NO DIVINE REVELATION. My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children. Hosea 4:6

Where there is no revelation, people cast off restraint; but blessed is the one who Proverbs 29:18
21 The lips of the righteous feed many: but fools die for want of wisdom. Proverbs 10:21

NOTE: ABOUT 15% OF THIS TEACHING IS NOT COMPLETE YET. I KNOW THAT THIS SUBJECT IS ONE OF THE MOST CONTROVERSIAL SUBJECTS IN THE BODY OF CHRIST. BECAUSE ITS CRUCIAL TO GOD FOR THE BRIDE TO MAKE IT TO HEAVEN THE HOLY SPIRIT HAS ASKED ME TO PREACH AND TEACH THIS AS HE HEALS THE HEART OF THE BRIDE IN REVIVALS AND THE COMING OUTPOURING. THIS MAY COME AS A SHOCK TO MANY OF YOU BUT THE LORD TOLD ME IF THIS EVENT HAPPENED TODAY THAT OVER 95% OF THE CHURCH WOULD NOT GO, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT MUST HEAL THE HEART OF THE BRIDE TO CHANGE THAT. THIS IS ONE OF THE PRIMARY REASONS FOR THE END TIME OUTPOURING, IN THE MERCY OF THE LORD. FOR THOSE OF YOU THAT DON'T BELIEVE IN THE CATCHING AWAY, EVERYTHING IN THE KINGDOM REQUIRES FAITH SO I PRAY THAT YOU WILL GET A REVELATION. IF NOT PREPARE TO DIE A MARTYR IN THE TRIBULATION AND REFUSE HE MARK OF THE BEAST AND DO NOT DENY JESUS OR HE WILL DENY YOU TO THE FATHER. FOR THOSE THAT REFUSE TO CHANGE YOUR MIND ABOUT MID OR POST TRIB. MAKE SURE YOU GET READY NOW, AND KEEP LOOKING UP FOR HIS COMING AND YOU WILL BE FINE. OTHERWISE YOU TOO MAY FIND YOURSELF IN THE TRIB. I'M CONVINCED WHATS IN THIS TEACHING IS A OVERWHELMING AMOUNT OF BIBLICAL EVIDENCE TO CONVINCE MOST SKEPTICS. I DON'T KNOW WHATS IN A MAN'S HEART, BUT IT SEEMS MANY THAT TEACH CONTRARY TO THIS ARE SAYING GOD IS A LIAR IN HIS WORD. WE WILL BE JUDGED HARSHER AS TEACHERS AND PREACHERS BECAUSE WE HAVE A GREATER KNOWLEDGE, OR WE ARE SUPPOSED TO HAVE. I HAVE FOUND THAT MOST WITH CRITICAL RESPONSES THIS HAVE NOT BOTHERED TO READ IT ALL THE WAY THRU. THEIR HEART IS HARDENED TO THEIR, TEACHING OR OPINION THAT THEY ALREADY HAVE PRECONCEIVED IN THEIR MIND, AND THEY CANNOT BIBLICALLY SUPPORT THAT FEELING. ITS A LONG READ BUT WELL WORTH YOUR YOUR TIME. I HAVE NOT FOUND A TEACHING THIS DEEP OR THOROUGH TO DATE. IT'S ALL FACTS AND BIBLICALLY SOUND, WITHOUT ALL THE FLUFF AND OF A BOOK. I HAVE NOTHING TO PERSONALLY GAIN FROM THIS BUT THE KINGDOM AND A CROWN. I'M NOT INTERESTED IN FAME OR RICHES. BLESSINGS AND LOVE IN CHRIST TO Y'ALL.

The Book Of Revelation is the first of many clues of a Pre Tribulation Catching Away. Why?
First it is written in chronological order and after talking about the 7 Churches in Rev. 2 and 3 John no longer mentions The Church a door is closed and The Church is caught up into Heaven.

Let's examine Revelation 2 and 3. Jesus rebukes and warns 5 of the 7 Churches and only praises 2 of them.

7 Blessings are promised by Jesus to those that overcome. All seven of the blessings are Heavenly Blessings which means we have to make it to Heaven to receive them. There are only two ways to get to Heaven which is we either must die or be caught up to Heaven. The 7 blessings are:
TO HE THAT OVER COMETH.

1. Will eat of The Tree Of Life. Revelation 2:
2. Will not be hurt by the 2nd. Death. Revelation 2:11
3. Will eat the hidden manna, and be given a white stone with a new name written in it. Revelation 2:17
4. Will be given power over the nations. Revelation 2:26
5. Will be clothed in white raiment, and not be blotted out of The Book Of Life. But Jesus will confess their name before The Father and the Angels. This presents a problem for the once saved always saved doctrine. It makes it clear that ones name can INFACT BE BLOTED OUT OF THE BOOK OF LIFE, AND IF OUR SINS ARE ALREADY FORGIVEN IN ADVANCE HOW IS IT THAT JESUS SAYS WE MUST OVERCOME TO BE CAUGHT UP. Revelation 3:5
6. Will sit with Jesus on His thrown as He sat with His Father at His Thrown when He over cometh. Revelation 3:21
7. Will inherit all things. Revelation 21:7

On the other side of the scale those that are not overcomers are those that repent not and:

1. Leave their first love.
2. Being Luke Warm, not being on fire for God.
3. Holding false doctrine.
4. Faint in well doing.
5. Don't Endure tribulation.
6. Deny the faith.
7. Not keeping GOD'S Word/COMMANDMENTS

A OVERCOMER OVERCOMES THESE THINGS.

Jesus says he will remove their candlesticks, puke them out of His mouth, fight them with the sword in His mouth, blot their name out of the book of life, CAST THEM INTO GREAT TRIBULATION, Etc. If they do not repent. IF THEY ARE NOT CAST INTO GREAT TRIBULATION IF THEY REPENT DOES THIS NOT MEAN THAT THEY WILL BE CAUGHT UP. THIS FACT ALONE IS ALREADY A CLEAR INDICATION OF A PRE TRIBULATION CATCHING AWAY AND WE ARE JUST GETTING STARTED.
The list goes on. Jesus only complements 2 of the churches and rebukes the other 5. There are many other things that are listed by Paul in the epistles, also Revelation 21:8, and in the Gospels. I think most of us know what sin is. The reason though that there's no power in most of the Church including the Pentecostal and Charismatic churches is because too many are believing, teaching, and preaching the EXAGGERATED GRACE DOCTRINE. I only know a few that believe that doctrine and are still walking close to the Lord as Overcomer's and are CARRIERS OF THE GLORY OF GOD, so that a powerful anointing actually flows thru them. Those that think they don't need to repent from their sin have a huge problem in what the Apostles said to the Churches, what Jesus said to the seven Churches in Revelation 2-3, and what Jesus said in Rev.21.8, what Jesus also said in the parables, and what he said said in the Gospels. Such as you are my friend only if you obey my commandments. John 15:14, 1 John 5:3. This means we must walk in Holiness and right standing with God, in repentance when we mess up. Then The Lord's Grace and Righteousness will surly cover our short comings. Truth is once saved always saved doctrine is preached mostly by seeker friendly preachers, most of which are knee deep in sin themselves and otherwise afraid to preach the truth and those deceived by this group mostly are as well. Everywhere I go I find a large percentage of CHRISTIANS that need deliverance and their hearts healed The Exaggerated Grace Preachers Have cherry picked a few pet verses to try to prove their point, and if you read and believe and do The Bible as a whole, most of you will agree that the Exaggerated Grace message is clearly a lie from the Pits Of Hell.

So this being said let's look at the parables.

MATTHEW 7:21-24
21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:

This is referring to those which many have actually carried the Anointing Of The Lord. When Jesus says He never knew them if you look up knew in the HEBREW and The Greek it means to have a intimate relationship with, as we have with our spouse. Jesus is saying that he never had a intimate walk with them. This is a scary verse that destroys the EXAGGERATED GRACE DOCTRINE. In verse 24 Jesus is the rock that a wise man builds his house on.

MATTHEW 24:37-51
37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
38 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,
39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?
46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.
47 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.
48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;
49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;
50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,
51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Luke 12:37-48
Like the days of Lot, and Noah so shall these days be.
One woman taken in the field one left,
One woman taken in the mill one left.
If the goodman new when the thief cometh his house would not be broken up. Jesus will come like a thief in the night.
Blessed will be the servant doing what he is supposed to when his Lord comes.
The others will be appointed their portion with the hypocrites.
There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Well if I found myself in the Trib. That's what I would be doing.

37 Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them.
38 And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants.
39 And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through.
40 Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not.
41 Then Peter said unto him, Lord, speakest thou this parable unto us, or even to all?
42 And the Lord said, Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his lord shall make ruler over his household, to give them their portion of meat in due season?
43 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.
44 Of a truth I say unto you, that he will make him ruler over all that he hath.
45 But and if that servant say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken;
46 The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers.
47 And that servant, which knew his lord's will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes.
48 But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.

THE PARABLE OF THE TEN VIRGINS IS A CATCHING AWAY PARABLE.
1 THEN shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.
2 And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.
3 They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:
4 But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
5 While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.
6 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.
7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.
8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.
9 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.
10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.
11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.
12 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.
13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
Mathew 25:1-13

They were not ready. The oil could refer to the oil of The Holy Spirit. Of course we cannot buy that, although people try, look at Simon the Sorcerer. Bottom line they were not ready. It clearly states there was a door that was shut. The Wedding Feast Of The Lamb is defiantly being held in Heaven at The Father's house as is JEWISH tradition.
Just as when John's Spirit was caught up into Heaven at the beginning of Revelation 4, there was A DOOR THAT OPENED. This Door is to The Wedding Chamber of The Bridegroom's Father's House.

THE NEXT PARABLE IS THE UNPROFITABLE SERVANT.

14 For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods.
15 And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey.
16 Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made them other five talents.
17 And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two.
18 But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid his lord's money.
19 After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them.
20 And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more.
21 His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.
22 He also that had received two talents came and said, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me two talents: behold, I have gained two other talents beside them.
23 His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.
24 Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed:
25 And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine.
26 His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed:
27 Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury.
28 Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents.
29 For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath.
30 And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

HE WAS CAST INTO OUTER DARKNESS WHICH IS THE TRIBULATION. THIS PARABLE IS A VISUAL OF THE SEPARATION, OF THE CATCHING AWAY.

Also in the parables there are examples of separation. Good fish from bad fish, sheep from goats, and wheat from thorns. What do all these things have in common, they are all found together. Some of the separation takes place at the catching away, the rest takes place in the Tribulation and when Jesus returns to rule and reign.
In the Church we have wheat and thorns, sheep and goats, good fish, and bad fish.
In Jesus day they had a long board with small stones glued under it, that a mule was walked back and across it. This separated the hard shell from the wheat. THIS IS CALLED A TRIBULUM IN THE LATIN, THE ROOT WORD FOR THE TRIBULATION.

1 AND Jesus answered and spake unto them again by parables, and said,
2 The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son,
3 And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come.
4 Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage.
5 But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise:
6 And the remnant took his servants, and entreated them spitefully, and slew them.
7 But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth: and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city.
8 Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy.
9 Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage.
10 So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests.
11 And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment:
12 And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.
13 Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
14 For many are called, but few are chosen.

THIS IS IMPLYING THAT THOSE THAT DO NOT HAVE A SPOTLESS WEDDING GARMENT WITHOUT SPOT OR WRINKLE WILL BE CAST INTO THE OUTER DARKNESS OF THE TRIBULATION FOR MANY ARE CALLED, BUT FEW ARE CHOSEN.

BECAUSE FEW CHOOSE TO BE CHOSEN.

IN MATTHEW 18 THE EVIL SERVANT DID NOT FORGIVE AFTER HE WAS FORGIVEN. HE WAS GIVEN TO THE TORMENTORS WHICH COULD BE A VISUAL OF THE TRIBULATION, OR ONE CAN ALSO BE LOST TO HELL FOR UNFORGIVNESS ACCORDING TO JESUS.

35 Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning;
36 And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him immediately.
37 Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them.
38 And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants.
Luke 12:35-38

THIS MAKES IT CLEAR THAT WE NEED TO BE WATCHING FOR OUR LORD'S RETURN.

Now before we look at more NT scripture on the Catching Away, let's look at some OT verses that most people don't even know exists on the Catching Away.

16 Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name.
17 And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.
18 Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.
Malachi 3:16-18

NOT ONLY IS THERE A CATCHING AWAY, BUT THERE IS A BOOK IN HEAVEN FOR THOSE GOING. THIS IS ONE OF AT LEAST SIX BOOKS IN HEAVEN. THEY ARE: I will substantiate with further verses that the Book Of Remembrance is for those that will be caught to Heaven in The Catching Away.
1. The Lamb's Book Of Life. Rev. 3:5, 20
2. The Book Of The Living. Isa.4:3
3. The Book Of Deeds. Rev. 20
4. The Book Of Wars Of The Lord. Ps.69:28
5. The Book Of Remembrance. Malachi 3:16-18
6. THE BOOK OF TEARS. Psalms 56:8

THE BOOK OF REMEMBRANCE IS THE BOOK LISTING THOSE TO BE CAUGHT UP.

16 Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name.
17 And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.
18 Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.
Malachi 3:16-18
WHAT DID THEY DO?
1. They gave, according to previous verses in same chapter.
2. They feared God and kept His commandments.
3. They witnessed one to another, they loved and meditated on The Name Of The Lord.
4. They served God.

IN THE DAY THESE BOOKS WERE WRITTEN THERE WERE NO CHAPTERS, IT WAS ALL ONE LETTER. CHAPTERS WERE ADDED LATER. Malachi 4 goes on to talk all about the tribulation, right after we hear about being spared from this if we are in The Book Of Remembrance.

1 FOR, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.
2 But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.
3 And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of hosts.
4 Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments.
5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:
6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.
Malachi 4:1-6

13 O that thou wouldest hide me in the grave, that thou wouldest keep me secret, until thy wrath be past, that thou wouldest appoint me a set time, and remember me!
14 If a man die, shall he live again? all the days of my appointed time will I wait, till my change come.
Job 14:13-14
LOOK AT THAT, IT SAYS REMEMBER ME!!!
From the inspiration of The Holy Spirit Job knew WRITE ABOUT praying that the LORD REMEMBER HIM, and keep IN SECRET HIDING UNTIL HIS WRATH WAS PAST, about the changing in a twinkling of an eye, and about an appointed time. Job is the oldest book in the Bible.

2 God is jealous, and the LORD revengeth; the LORD revengeth, and is furious; the LORD will take vengeance on his adversaries, and he reserveth wrath for his enemies.
Nahum 1:2

The Lamb pours out His wrath in the first part of the Tribulation the Father pours out His wrath in the second part of the Tribulation. This starts in Revelation 6:1-17 The above verse and several NT Scriptures make it clear that God reserves His wrath for His enemies.

15 And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;
16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:
17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?
Revelation 6:15-17. THE LAMBS WRATH BEING POURED OUT EARLY.

Nahum 1:2 clearly says that God's wrath is not for us but reserved for His enemies. God has no wrath for those of us that are obedient to Jesus. He took all the wrath there was for us AND GAVE IT TO JESUS on the cross. As long as we remain in Christ Jesus all that He has for us is LOVE. Here are the other versus that clearly show that we are not subject to His wrath, so like all the other times in the bible the Lord will once again separate His Overcomers.
Here are other verses supporting this verse that we are not subject to the Lord's wrath.

18 Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the LORD's wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.
Zephaniah 1:18
WHY WOULD HE NOT CATCH US AWAY IF HE IS GOING MAKE SPEEDY RIDDANCE OF THOSE LEFT IN THE TRIB. THE TRIBULATION IS A SEPARATING FORCE.

Supporting NT verses.

18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
ROMANS 1:18

8 But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath,
9 Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile;
10 But glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile:
ROMANS 2:8-10
HERE'S INDIGNATION, AND WRATH TO ALL THOSE THAT ARE EVIL AND THOSE THAT DO NOT OBEY THE TRUTH. TAKE NOTE YOU ARE GOING TO SEE THAT WORD INDIGNATION IN SOME COMING VERSES. IT'S PROMISING THEM THAT DO EVIL TRIBULATION, BUT ONCE AGAIN SEPARATING THEM THAT WORKETH GOOD.

6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.
Ephesians 5:6
AGAIN WRATH ON THE DISOBEDIENT NOT THE RIGHTEOUS.

9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,
1 Thessalonians 5:9
WE ARE NOT APPOINTED TO GOD'S WRATH. VERY, VERY CLEAR.

3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.
Ephesians 2:3
THOSE NOT IN CHRIST ARE CHILDREN OF WRATH.

GENESES 29 DESCRIBES JACOB'S TROUBLE FOR TWO WEEKS, (2 SEVEN YEAR PERIODS) THAT HE HAD TO SERVE. ONE WEEK (SEVEN YEARS) FOR THE WIFE THAT WAS NOT PRETTY, AND ANOTHER WEEK (7 years) FOR HER SISTER THAT HE WANTED, AND THOUGHT THAT HE WAS GETTING ORIGINALLY. THEN Jeramiah 30:7 SAYS THAT TROUBLE IS COMING TO JACOB (ISRAEL) AGAIN.

7 Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob's trouble; but he shall be saved out of it.
Jeramiah 30:7
Just like in ROMANS 11, and The Book Of Revelation says, this say's ISRAEL will be saved.
Rabbis say that Jacob's trouble was with the Holocaust, which birthed the Nation Of Israel being pulled back together from the 4 corners of the Earth as Bible Prophecy predicted.
But there is one more 7 year period coming which is the tribulation which will birth the 2nd. Coming of The MESIAH.
THIS IS JACOB'S TROUBLE (ISRAEL'S) NOT THE CHURCH'S.

TEN REASONS WHY THERE WILL BE A PRE TRIBULATION CATCHING AWAY.
1.Tribulation is Jacob's trouble not for the Church. Jeramiah 30:7
2.Tribulation time to judge nations for their sin. not the Church. Rev. 11:18
3.Tribulation is time to destroy the sinners, not Christians. ISAHAH 13:9
4.Tribulation to bring a remnant Tribe of the Jewish Through the fire Isaiah 1:9, not the Bride.
5.Church not appointed to wrath. Lamb pours out His wrath 1st. Half of Tribulation The Father pours His wrath out 2nd. half of Trib. 1Thesoilonians 5:9
6.The Lord said we should pray to escape these things. If no escape He would not ask us to pray for escape. Luke 21:36
7. Revelation 3:10 The Lord said He would keep us from the hour of testing that will come onto all those on the Earth. He said He would keep us from it, not in it.
8.Hebrews 4:9 a rest for God's people. Greek word for rest Sabaton which is where SABATH comes from. There's a eternal rest/Sabath for God's people in Heaven.
9. Marriage supper of the lamb is in Heaven, Bride needs to be there.
10. The Bema Judgement is in Heaven, during Mid Trib. The Bride needs to be there. Revelation 11

19 Thy dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead.
20 Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.
21 For, behold, the LORD cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.
Isaiah 26:19-21

THESE OT VERSES MIRROR 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18
It talks about The Resurrection Of The Dead In Christ, It talks about The Door as it does in Rev. 4:1 and MATTHEW 25:1-13 The Parable Of The 10 Virgins it says THEY WENT INTO THE CHAMBERS AND SHUT THE DOOR. It uses that word indignation again, and it also says The Earth Shall Disclose The Blood of those slain just as it does in Revelation. MOST IMPORTANTLY IT SAYS TO COME INTO THE LORD'S CHAMBERS AND HIDE THYSELF FROM THE INDIGNATION. THE BRIDEGROOM'S WEDDING CHAMBERS.

In Judaism when a man and woman get married, they go into a WEDDING CHAMBER at The Father's House with a canopy called the Hoppa and SHUT THE DOOR and consummate their marriage.

EXODUS 19 IS MIRRORED TO THE COMING CATCHING AWAY. MOSES WENT UP MT. SINAI TO MEET WITH THE LORD FOR THE LAW. PAUL WENT UP MT. SINAI IN ARABIA FOR THREE YEARS AND CAME BACK AND WROTE ABOUT THE RETURN OF THE LORD AND THE CATCHING AWAY THRU OUT 1 THESSALONIANS WHICH WAS THE FIRST EPISTLE WRITTEN, AS THEY ARE NOT IN CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER. THE LORD GAVE PAUL THE REVELATION ON MT. SINAI OF THE CATCHING AWAY. HERE ARE NINE EXAMPLES.

1. ISRAEL is called a peculiar people. Exodus 19:5
The Church is called a peculiar people. 1 Peter 2:9
2. ISRAEL is called a Holy Nation. Exodus 19:6
The Church is a Holy Nation. 1 Peter 2:9
3. ISRAEL Is a Kingdom of Priests. Exodus 19:6
The Church is Kings and Priests To The Lord. Revelation 1:6
4. The Lord came on the third day. Exodus 19:11
The Lord raises us up on the third day. Hosea 6:1-3
5. The Lord's voice was as a trumpet. Exodus19:16
The Lord shall descended from Heaven with the Trump Of God. 1 Thessalonians 4:16
6. The Lord came down in the clouds. Exodus 19:16
Jesus will come down in the clouds. Acts 1:9-10
7. The Lord answered Moses in a voice. Exodus 19:19
There will be a voice of the Arch Angel. 1 Thessalonians 4:16
8. The Lord descended in fire. Exodus 19:20
Jesus will descend in a flaming fire. 2 Thessalonians 1:7-10
9. The Lord came down and Moses came up. Exodus 19:20
The Saints will be caught up to meet The Lord who comes down in the air.

THERE ARE 4 REASONS WHY MANY BELIEVE THAT THE CATCHING AWAY IS MID TRIB OR POST TRIB. POST TRIB. ABSOLUTELY MAKES NO SENSE. THAT WOULD MEAN GOD WOULD MAKE US GO THRU THE ENTIRE TRIB. AND BRING US UP TO HEAVEN JUST TO DO A U TURN AND COME RIHGT BACK. THE FOUR REASONS WHY ARE:

1. Some people believe that The Last Trump described by Paul in 1 CORINTHIANS 15:52 correlates with the 7th. Trump of The Angels in the Book Of Revelation. Not true and I will show you why.
2. Some people believe that MATHEW 24 puts the Catching Away Post TRIB. Also not correct and I will show you why.
3. Some people believe that MATHEW 13:30 proves that the left behind doctrine is false. This too is defiantly not the case and I'll show you why. IN FACT MATTHEW 13:30 PROVES THE OPPOSITE, IT PROVES THE LEFT BEHIND DOCTRINE TRUE. OHHH THE DEVIL IS A LIAR.
4. 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4
According to this there will be a falling away first. We are defiantly seeing that right now. I've heard Prophecy Teachers say that nothing needs to happen for the Catching Away to take place. That's not correct. The Anti Christ must be revealed first. I believe that will be occurring in the very near future, I evan dare to say 2015. We will see very soon if that's correct.
Now another thing I have heard people say there's no temple yet. That's right and there does not need to be one up and running until just before mid TRIB. Mid Trib. Is when the Man Of Perdition is going to stop animal sacrifices, appear in the temple and say he is God, and break the peace treaty. From what I hear the temple construction is already in planning, and I'm sure the Temple Mount will be involved in the Peace treaty. This does not preclude a Pre Trib Catching Away.

1 Corinthians 15:52-53
52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.

NOW MANY INCORRECTLY THINK THIS REFERS TO THE 7Th. TRUMP OF THE ANGEL IN THE BOOK OF REVELATION. ITS NOT THE TRUMP OF A ANGEL. ITS THE TRUMP OF GOD. LET'S CROSS IT WITH 1 THESSALONIANS 4:16-17

16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
17 Then we which are alive and remain 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.

Remember in Revelation 4 when John said God's voice sounded like a Trumpet. This could either be The Voice Of God, or a Trump Of God. IT IS CLEARLY NOT THE TRUMP OF A ANGEL.

When the verse refers to the last trump it's talking about The Last Trump at The Feast Of Trumpets. Let me explain.

First let me say because we are from The West we look at The Bible. Thru Western Eyes.
The Bible was written by Jews, it's focused at ISRAEL and surrounding areas, Jesus was a Jew. When God spoke to them and Jesus taught them they did so in terms and words that they would understand and relate to. They had Middle Eastern understanding and eyes.
We get confused on so many things and it almost seems that the Bible conflicts with itself because we are looking at it with western eyes not Middle Eastern eyes, understanding JEWISH traditions and customs.
So when some things get explained from a Hebraic perspective it can clarify things immensely.

THE LORD uses His Feast Days to mark Biblical Events, and to mark His Signs In The Heavens.
Here's the picture.
Passover represents The Blood.
Pentecost represents The Holy Spirit.
Tabernacles is the Kingdom.

YOU HAD 3 FEASTS OF THE LORD THAT YOU CELEBRATED WITH YOUR HARVEST CYCLES EACH YEAR.

1. PASSOVER.
2. PENTECOST.
3. TABERNACLES.

Each one of these feasts have a special harvest that go with it.
Passover is barley. Harvested in March and April.
Pentecost is wheat. Harvested in May and June.
Tabernacles is fruit. It's called the ingathering. Harvested in August, and September.

Here is The Sequence Of Events for The End Time Harvest.

They all have to be harvested in a different manner.
Wheat is winnowed. You shake kit, throw it up in the air, and the wind separates the stock and chaff off it.

Barley has a hard shell. In Jesus day they a log board with gravel glued to the bottom of it. They would put the gravel side on the wheat and walk a mile over the board, separating the shell and stalk from it.
This board was called a TRIBULUM which is the Latin root word for tribulation.

The Grapes are crushed.

In the Harvest Field you have 3 Harvest Cycles.
1. You harvest The First Fruits first, separate them and take them to the Temple Storehouse first.
2. Then you count the Omar. Harvesting the field however leaving the four corners. (God commanded the four corners be left for the poor)
In MATTHEW 24 when Jesus says He sends His Angels at the sound of a trump you say that's the Catching Away, but no that's the gleaning of 4 corners, which is the last part of the harvest.
Here is the picture.
Barley Harvest you have no levin at passover, levin is representative of sin. You have a 7 day period of no levin representing our seven years in Heaven.
At Pentecost you have levin when your 144,000 go into the Tribulation. They are dealing with levin/sin on the earth. They are Caught Up INTO HEAVEN in Revelation 14.
The Grape Harvest is in Revelation 14:20. Called The Wine Press Of The Wrath Of God. Angels were throwing grapes in the wine press at the end of the Tribulation.
The Barely Harvest has no levin, that's the Overcomer's that are Caught Up.
144,000 Jews go into the Tribulation. But they are Caught Up into Heaven in Revelation 14.
Then again at the end of the Tribulation God sends His Angels to get the four corners which are the remains after the harvest.

Now the Last Trump can also be describing the Last Trump at The Feast Of Trumpets.

25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.
26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.
27 So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?
28 He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?
29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.
30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.
Matthew 13:25-30
NOW SOME SAY THE LEFT BEHIND TEACHING IS FALSE BASED ON THE ABOVE VERSES. BUT THEY INFACT ERROR IN THIS TEACHING. THIS IS WHY.
As you can see in the harvest teaching the Harvest begins at The Catching Away, and cycles thru the Tribulation. The Tribulation from the first Catching Away that begins it, to the Christians that are Martyred all the way thru there is a separating force. The thorns are left in the Tribulation at The Catching Away that is being bunched up together. The Tribulation Scriptures continually talk about the land and many of those on it being burned by God's wrath. Therefore MATHEW 13:25-30 supports the Left Behind Teaching, it does not conflict with it.

HERE ARE 3 PARAEL APPLICATIONS TO OUR 7 YEARS IN HEAVEN.

1. 6 Days of creation represent 6 1000 year periods. We have had roughly 6000 years since Adam's creation.
The sentence thousandth year is The Millinium Reign of Christ.
THE SEVEN DAYS OF CREATION ARE REPRESENTATIVE OF 7000 YEARS.

2. ENOCH WAS THE SEVENTH MAN FROM ADAM AND ENOCH PLEASED GOD SO ENOUCH WAS CAUGHT UP. (TRANSLATED)
In the Greek translated is transfer, transported, or change sides.
In Hebrew took him as in God took him, to carry away, to seize by force upward, to take up. The tradition of the JEWS is that Enoch was born and also caught up on Passover.

3. The 7 days of creation are representative of The 7 Years that we are going to be in Heaven.

The Church has been on Pentecost for two thousand years.
PROPHETICALLY THE NEXT FEAST TO BE FULFILLED IS THE FEAST OF TRUMPETS.
This Feast is described in Leviticus 23.
This is also known as Rosh Hashanah. It's the JEWISH New Year.
The name "Rosh Hashanah" is not used in the Bible to discuss this holiday. The Bible refers to the holiday as Yom Ha-Zikkaron (the day of remembrance) or Yom Teruah (the day of the sounding of the shofar). The holiday is instituted.

IS IT A COINCIDENCE THAT THIS IS CALLED THE DAY OF REMEMBRANCE, AND THOSE BEING CAUGHT UP ARE IN THE BOOK OF REMEMBRANCE?

There are 100 Shofar Blasts.

THE LAST TRUMP IS THE LONGEST AND THE LOUDEST, AT LEAST 10 SECONDS.

EXODUS 19 THE MIRRORS THE CATCHING AWAY.
EXODUS 19 TALKS ABOUT A LONG, LOUD TRUMPET BLAST.

IN JESUS TIME TWO DAYS WOULD BE MARKED OFF FOR THIS FEAST, AND THEY WOULD HAVE TO WATCH FOR THE SLIVER OF THE NEW MOON, FOR IT TO START. SO NO MAN KNEW THE DAY OR THE HOUR!

IT MARKS THE DAY OF ADAM'S CREATION.

The Hebrew name for Rosh HaShanah is Yom Teruah or the day of the awakening blast. Followed by the Days of Awe. This alone presents a strong case for a Pre Trib. Catching Away. THE CORONATION OF THE KING, the resurrection of the dead, the joy of the Messianic kingdom, and the wedding of the Messiah are among the many themes associated with Rosh HaShanah. A strong theme to associate with Teruah is to "awake." Teruah can be translated "shout". These themes are a remembrance of 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17

This passage is full of HEBREW idoms that especially associate with Rosh Hashanah, the Feast of Trumpets and therefore this passage is cultural evidence that Rosh HaShanah will be the appointed day of the Catching Away of The Bride, and the Resurrection Of The Dead In Christ.
Since a significant theme of Rosh HaShanah is that of the wedding of the Messiah, allows us to look at the ancient customs associated with the Jewish wedding ceremony to see if there are practices that relate with the many themes of this festival. Prior to the actual betrothal (a important legal transaction), the woman accept man's proposal of marriage by drinking a cup of wine. This is why Jesus passed the cup of wine at the Last Supper. When we partake of the wine of communion we are accepting Jesus as our groom. We are to remember Him, and not whore ourselves, soiling our wedding garments. The man would then pay a bride price. Jesus paid the ultimate price for us with His life. The man would then give his betrothed gifts. Jesus gave us the Holy Spirit, Gifts Of The Spirit, and many other gifts and blessings. The man would then leave for a period of one to two years to go build a place for us - a wedding chamber, (THE HOOPA)

3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. John:14:3

8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 2 Peter 3:8

Within 2 days or 2000 years Jesus will return for His bride!

When the wedding chamber is complete the Bridegroom picks up his Bride at midnight with a host of people with him both shouting and blowing the shofar. He takes the Bride to the wedding chamber called the Hoopa. Notice that the bride is taken from her familiar setting to a place where she has never been to, the home of the Bridegroom's Father. They would immediately go to the marriage supper and then enter the Hoppa ( Wedding Chamber) for a period of seven days to consummate the marriage. ROSH HASHANA IS ALSO KNOWN AS THE DAY OF OUR CONCEALMENT.

THE SEVEN DAYS THAT WE ARE CONCEALED CORRESPOND WITH THE SEVEN YEARS THE TRIBULATION IS UNLEASHED UNTO A UNBELIEVING WORLD.

When the seven days are complete TENS OF THOUSANDS OF US SAINTS WILL RETURN WITH JESUS.

Yom Kippur and Tabernacles will find their prophetic fulfillment.

MOST people believe that we "will not know the day or the hour of His appearing". They don't realize however, that this phrase taken from Matthew 24:36 is an actual common Hebrew idiom for Rosh HaShanah. Jesus' audience fully understood that what Jesus was saying was "I will come again on Rosh HaShanah at some point in the future". It would be like saying in America, "I'll see you again when we gather together to exchange presents. Or as Arnold says: I'LL BE BACK!!!" We automatically know that we are referring to Christmas. In like manner, we can expect to see our Messiah on a future Rosh HaShanah.

All the end time events are divinely planned and are not happening by accident. Furthermore,

The Catching Away will occur at an appointed time and God has revealed to us what the appointed times were and are in Leviticus 23 in His Festivals. On some Rosh HaShanah at the final blast of the shofar we will hear the shout of the archangel, and The Trump Of God, and we will dwell intimately in the presence of Jesus, while the Days of Awe and Hell are unleashed upon the earth.

ANOTHER THING IN JUDAISM WHEN A BRIDEGROOM TAKES A BRIDE IN MARRIAGE HE CANNOT GO TO WAR OR WORK FOR ONE YEAR THAT HE TAKES TO CHEER THE BRIDE UP.

This means we have to be in Heaven with Jesus that year before He returns with tens of thousands of His saints to fight The Battle Of Armageddon.

5 When a man hath taken a new wife, he shall not go out to war, neither shall he be charged with any business: but he shall be free at home one year, and shall cheer up his wife which he hath taken. Deuteronomy 25:5

The sixth year in Heaven is the destruction of Mystery Babylon which I'm fairly certain is what's left of the United States, which the present administration The Lord has rewarded us is presently doing a great job of destroying, which very soon will manifest in its fullness.

THE SEVENTH YEAR THE BRIDE MUST BE IN HEAVEN FOR OUR SHABOT (rest) WITH YHE GROOM. IT LOOKS LIKE THERE WILL BE A ONE YEAR WEDDING SUPPER. WHAT A PARTY THAT. WILL BE.

IN THE PASSOVER FEAST OF THE LORD THEY HAVE 4 CUPS EACH IS IDENTIFIED.

Cup#4 is turned upside down. JEWISH families send a child outside each time to see if The Prophet Elijah is there. If he is there Elijah will come in and turn the cup right side up.

JESUS ONLY NAMED 3 CUPS. Then the last cup that Jesus drank from He said was the last cup of suffering He said you will not be able to drink of this. I will not drink from it again until I drink of it anew with you in The Kingdom. IT'S THE CUP OF CONSUMMATION.

IF JESUS THOUGHT THE BRIDE WAS GOING TO BE HERE WHEN THE PROPHET ELIJAH SHOWS UP HE WOULD HAVE HAD THE FORTH UPSIDE DOWN CUP PRESENT.

Then Revelation nineteen. Tens of thousands of Saint come back as The Armies Of Heaven to watch the Anti Christ and his armies take their last butt whipping.

Those In Christ go back go rule as Kings and Priests for the 1000 year reign of Christ.

So let look at The New Testament Catching Away Bible verses. Like Jesus turning water to wine we saved YHE best for last.

THE FOLLOWING VERSE CAME FROM THE FIRST OF FOURTEEN EPISTLES THAT PAUL WROTE. HE RECEIVED THESE REVELATIONS IN THE 3 YEARS HE SPENT WITH THE LORD GETTING REVELATION ON MT. SINAI, WHERE MOSES WENT UP TO MEET WITH THE LORD AS MENTIONED IN GALATIANS. JESUS SAID LET ME TELL YOU HOW I'M GOING TO CATCH UP MY BRIDE. THE EPISTLES ARE NOT IN CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER.

For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
17 Then we which are alive and remain 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 THESSALONIANS 4:16-17
THE GREEK FOR CAUGHT UP IS HARPAZO IT MEANS TO SNATCH UP BY FORCE. ANOTHER MEANING IS TO YANK SOMEONE BY THE HAIR OUT OF DANGERS WAY. THIS PRETTY MUCH SAYS IT ALL.

Here's THE NEXT ONE.
9 Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself:
10 That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him: Ephesians 1:9

GATHERING TOGETHER IN THE GREEK MEANS TO SUM UP. TO SUM UP TOGETHER IN ONE PLACE.

IN THE DISPENSATION OF THE FULLNESS OF TIME MEANS THE END OF THE DISPENSATION OF GRACE WHICH IS THE CHUCH AGE THAT WE ARE IN RIGHT NOW. IT MEANS THAT GOD IS STILL EXTENDING HIS GRACE TO THE SINNER AND INSTEAD OF SEEING MASS JUDGEMENTS LIKE WE. WILL IN THE TRIB. WE SEE SELECTIVE JUDGEMENTS. UNTIL THE FULLNESS OF THE GENTILES COMES IN AT WHICH TIME THE CHURCH WILL BE CAUGHT UP. THE SELECTIVE JUDGEMENTS ARE ABOUT TO INTENSIFY SO THE LORD CAN BRING REVIVAL. PEOPLE ARE TOO COMFORTABLE RIGHT NOW AND THERE IS NOT ENOUGH HUNGER FOR GOD, TO BRING HIS OUTPOURING OF HIS SPIRIT ON ALL FLESH WHICH HE IS ABOUT TO DO.

25 For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.
26 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: ROMANS 11:25-26

HERE'S THE THIRD SCRIPTURE:

1 NOW we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, 2 Thessalonians 2:1

THE GREEK FOR GATHERING TOGETHER IS: episunagó IT MEANS ASSEMBLING OF ALL. A COMPLETE COLLECTING OF SOMETHING. THE LORD WILL BE GATHERING THE DEAD IN CHRIST AND THE OVER COMERS THAT ARE CAUGHT UP IN THE CLOUDS.

NOW NUMBER FOUR: 22 But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels,

23 To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect,
24 And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.
Hebrews 12:22-24

THE GREEK FOR GENERAL ASSEMBLY IS panéguris IT MEANS TO ASSEMBLE ALL IN ONE LOCATION. IT WILL BE A COLLECTING OF THE LIVING AND THE DEAD IN CHRIST, AS IN THE BOOK OF REVELATION THERE WILL BE A INNUMERABLE AMOUNT OF ANGELS THERE, GOD THE FATHER WILL BE THERE, JESUS WILL BE THERE. THE LIVING WILL HAVE BEEN CHANGED FROM MORTAL TO IMMORTALITY IN GLORIFIED, INCORRUPTIBLE BODIES LIKE JESUS HAS. IT'S A UNIVERSAL MEETING IN ONE PLACE.

NOW HERE IS A MIRRORED IMAGE OF IT FROM WHAT THE JEWS DO: THEY HAD A GENERAL ASSEMBLY THAT WOULD MEET EVERY SEVEN YEARS, THAT INCLUDED WOMAN AND CHILDREN. BUT A GROUP OF ELDERS MET FROM 410 TO 310 BC. THEY WERE MEMBERS OF THE JEWISH SANHEDRIN had 70 MEMBERS. EZRA, AND NEHEMIAH EXPANDED IT FROM 70 TO 120. THEY WERE BROUGHT TOGETHER BY THE SCRIBE EZRA. THEY WROTE THE ORAL TRADITION SO THAT IT WOULD NOT BE LOST. HAGAII, NEHEMIAH, AND ZACHARIAH, AND MALACHI WERE PART OF THE GROUP. THEY TOOK THE SCROLLS AND PUT TOGETHER THE TORAH, THE PROPHETS AND THE WRITINGS. THEY FORMALISED THENPRAYER THAT WERE SAID AT THE TEMPLE AT THE FEASTS THAT THEY DO EVEN TILL THIS DAY WITHOUT A TEMPLE. THIS WENT ON FOR OVER A HUNDRED YEARS. THEY GAVE THE TORAH SCROLLS TO COMMON MEN IN THE TEMPLE SO THEY COULD READ IT.
THE ISRALI KNESSET POLITCAL BODY HAS 120 MEMBERS AND WAS MODELED AFTER THEM. GUESS WHAT ELSE WAS MIRRORED AND MODELED AFTER THEM?

JESUS KNEW THE TEMPLE WOULD BE DESTROYED IN 70 A.D.
THATS WHY JESUS SAID SAID THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS IN US, AND PAUL SAID IN 1 CORINTHIANS 3:16 THAT OUR BODIES ARE THE TEMPLE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.

IN ACTS 1:15 WHEN THE BRIDE RECEIVED THE HOLY SPIRIT IN THE UPPER ROOM THERE WAS 120 OF THEM. THAT NUMBER WAS NO RANDOM NUMBER.

THE CHURCH WAS MODELED AFTER THE JEWISH GENERAL ASSEMBLY. THE APOSTLES HELD ONTO THE ORAL TEACHINGS AND STORIES OF JESUS. THEY HAD THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST AS THE HOLY SPIRIT GAVE IT TO THEM AND WROTE THE EPISTLES. THEY GOT TOGETHER AND WROTE THE GOSPELS SO THEY WOULD NOT BE LOST. THEY WERE PUT INTO SCROLLS SO THE COMMON MAN COULD READ THEM.

THE JEWISH GENERAL ASSEMBLY WOULD MEET EVERY SEVEN YEAR AND EVERYONE INCLUDING WOMAN AND CHILDREN WOULD BE IN ATTENDANCE. A SPECIAL BEMA/PLATFORM THAT THE KING WOULD GO UP ON. THE KING WAS HANDED A TORAH SCROLL, THE KING WOULD HAND THE SCROLL TO THE PRESIDENT OF THE TEMPLE AND HE WOULD HAND IT TO THE HIGH PRIEST WHO WOULD BLESS IT AND HAND IT BACK TO YHE KING. THE KING THEN WOULD READ WHAT WAS WRITTEN ON THE SCROLL TO THE PUBLIC.

THIS IS THE ONLY TIME GOLD TRUMPETS WERE USED, GOLD REPRESENTS DIETY, SILVER REDEMPTION, AND BRASS HUMANITY. SHOFARS ARE USED ON NEW MOONS AND THE LORD'S FEAST DAYS. SILVER IS USED ON YOM KIPPUR AND CERTAIN DAYS. SILVER IS ALSO USED FOR THE CALLING OF THE CAMP, AND THE JOURNEYING OF ISRAEL INTO THE WILDERNESS.
ON THE CATCHING AWAY THERE WILL BE A TRUMP OF GOD THAT WILL UNDOUBTEDLY BE WITH A GOLD TRUMPET.

AFTER THE MEETING IN THE AIR IN THE CLOUDS EVERYONE WILL BE TRANSLATED TO HEAVEN. WITH GLORIFIED BODIES I'M SURE WE WILL BE MOVING LIKE THE ANGELS AT THE SPEED OF THOUGHT. NOT THAT GOD COULD NOT, OR WON'T TRANSLATE US THERE WITH A FEW WORDS.

IN THE BOOK OF REVELATION 5, WE SEE JESUS INTRODUCED ON THE THROWN ROOM FLOOR AS THE LION OF THE TRIBE OF JUDAH. JESUS WAS A LAMB, HE WILL HOWEVER BE RETURNING AS A LION, THE KING OF KINGS AND THE LORD OF LORDS.

ON THE BEMA THE KING READ A SCROLL. JESUS IN THE HEAVENLY TEMPLE ON THE BEMA PLATFORM JESUS WILL HAVE A 7 SEAL BOOK. JESUS IS THE ONLY ONE WORTHY TO BREAK THE SEALS. THIS WILL BE THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY IN HEAVEN.

IN THE HISTORY OF THE BIBLE THE RIGHTEOUS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN GIVEN THE LUXARY TO ESCAPE GOD'S JUDGEMENTS AND WRATH. GOD'S WRATH IS RESERVED FOR HIS ENEMIES. JESUS EVEN SAID WE ARE HIS FRIEND AND BROTHER ONLY IF WE OBEY HIS COMMANDMENTS OTHERWISE WE ARE HIS ENEMY. SO MUCH FOR SATAN'S EXAGGERATED GRACE LIES FTOM HELL.
THERE ARE EIGHT EXAMPLES IN THE BIBLE THAT THE RIGHTEOUS HAVE BEEN GIVE A WAY OF ESCAPE. ITS THE NATURE OF GOD WHO IS THE SAME YESTERDAY, TODAY, AND FOREVER.

1. Noah, Hebrews 11:7
2. Noah, Genesis 18:25
3. Lot 19:22 Genesis
4. Egypt Exodus 12:23
5. Destruction of Jerusalem 21:21
6. Edom, Mohab, and Eman. Daniel 11:41
7. Rev. 7:3 144,000 JEWS sealed with seal of God for protection, and they are caught away.
8. EZEKIAL 14:13-14 Noah, Daniel, and Job.
Luke 21:36 JESUS SAID TO PRAY TO BE FOUND WORTHY TO ESCAPE THESE THINGS, IF THERE IS NO ESCAPE WHY WOULD HE TELL US TO PRAY. NOTICE JESUS SAID WE MUST BE FOUND WORTHY AS WELL.

SOMETHING ELSE TO THINK OF.
I PERSONALLY DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW ANYONE CAN BELIEVE THAT THE FATHER WILL PUT HIS SEAL OF PROTECTION ON 144,000 JEWS, AND CATCH THEM AWAY, AND PROTECT A BUNCH OF MUZLIM ARABS IN JORDAN, AND THEN MAKE THE BRIDE OF HIS SON GO INTO WRATH IN THE TRIBULATION. WOULD ANY OF YOU MEN DO THAT TO YOUR BRIDE? WOULD ANY OF YOU WOMAN WANT ANYTHING TO DO WITH A MAN THAT DID THAT TO YOU? IF MEN BEING EVIL PROTECT THEIR BRIDE, HOW MUCH MORE DO YOU THINK THAT THE LORD WHO IS LOVE AND PERFECT IS GOING TO PROTECT HIS BRIDE, FROM HIS OWN WRATH.


ANOTHER REASON THE BRIDE WILL BE IN HEAVEN IS GOD HAS ETERNAL REST FOR US DURING THE TRIBULATION.

11 Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.
HEBREWS 4:11

There are three DIFFERENT Sabbaths mentioned in Hebrews 4. The Sabbath for Christians in this text is not the weekly Sabbath but the eternal Sabbath rest in heaven. The common expression "brother Jones crossed the Jordan last night" meaning, that Jones died and has gone into the promised land of heaven. Paul wanted to die and go be with Christ: Phil 1:21-24 The Sabbath rest in the promised land is the type of the true Sabbath rest we will experience at the second coming of Christ.


#1: Weekly Sabbath

Given to Israel in Ex 16 for first time.
"And God rested on the seventh day from all His works." Heb 4:4



#2: Promised land physical rest

Some of those wandering in the wilderness failed to enter the Sabbath rest of the promised land because of disobedience Heb 4:6
"For if Joshua had given them rest" Heb 4:8



#3: Spiritual fulfillment of land promise

In heaven at second coming:
God through David in Ps 95 "would not have spoken of another day after that." Heb 4:7

This is the last place a Sabbatarian would ever want to go to prove that he should keep the weekly Sabbath! First in v4 God spoke of the weekly Sabbath, then he spoke of a different Sabbath. The one of Hebrews 4:10. This verse identifies that a Sabbath remains, but it is not the weekly Sabbath! Moses gave Israel the weekly Sabbath first in Ex 16. Joshua gave Israel the promised land rest.
Notice that the first weekly Sabbath keeping occurred in Ex 16. It was based upon the fact that God rested on the seventh day of creation. The physical land rest when Joshua led them into Palestine was also based upon God resting on the seventh day. Only when we get to heaven, will we truly rest from our labours!


Heb 4:4-11 "For He has thus said somewhere concerning the seventh day,

"And God rested on the seventh day from all His works"

and again in this passage,

"They shall not enter My rest."

The weekly Sabbath and the land Sabbath in Palestine were both based upon this verse

God spoke of another rest after Joshua, through David in Ps 95 "For if Joshua had given them rest (through the weekly Sabbath), He (God through David) would not have spoken of another day (eternal rest in heaven) after that."
Joshua & Jesus were forerunners into the promised lands; Joshua of Palestine; Jesus of Heaven: Heb 6:11-13;19-20 full assurance of hope...inherit the promises...God made the promise to Abraham...this hope we have as ...one which enters within the veil, where Jesus has entered as a forerunner for us. Joshua was forerunner into physical promised land, Jesus into spiritual promise land.

BIBLICAL PROOF OF A PRE TRIBULATION CATCHING AWAY WITH OLD AND NEW TESTAMENT SCRIPTURES, AND A HEBRAIC PERSPECTIVE. AS A REWARD FOR OVER COMERS, NOT A BLESSING UNTO SALVATION. THESE TRUTH'S ABSOLUTELY DESTROY THE EXAGGERATED GRACE DOCTRINE OF DEVILS THAT HAS WEAKENED THE BODY OF CHRIST AND TAKEN THE POWER OUT OF MANY OF THE CHURCHES THAT WERE KNOWN IN THE PAST TO MOVE IN GOD'S POWER AND ANOINTING. I AGREE WITH THE GRACE TEACHINGS OF PAUL. BUT NOT THE DEMONIC ALTERATIONS OF IT SAYING WE NEED NOT REPENT BECAUSE OUR SONS ARE ALREADY FORGIVEN, WE DON'T NEED TO WALK IN HOLINESS, WE DON'T NEED TO BE IN RIGHT STANDING WITH GOD. FOR THAT MATTER MUCH OF THE CHURCH IS WALKING IN OFFENSE AND UNFORGIVNESS. JESUS SAID IF WE DON'T FORGIVE OTHER THE FATHER WONT FORGIVE YOU. MARK 11:26, MATTHEW 6:15. In John 15 JESUS SAID IF WE DON'T ABIDE IN HIM WE WILL BE CAST IN THE FIRE, (the Trib.) AND IF WE DON'T FOLLOW HIS COMMANDS WE ARE NOT HIS FRIENDS. JAMES 4:4 SAYS A FRIEND OF THE WORLD IS A ENEMY OF GOD. THESE ARE ALL VERSES MODERN DAY GRACE TEACHERS LIKE TO IGNORE. Nahum 1:2 SAYS GOD RESERVES HIS WRATH FOR HIS ENEMIES.

I HAVE NOTICED NEARLY ALL OF THOSE CRITICAL OF THIS POST HAVE NOT BOTHERED TO READ IT. THEY SIMPLY CRITICIZE BASED ON PRE CONCEIVED BELIEFS, AND SOMETIMES POST SOME PET VERSES TAKEN OUT OF CONTEXT OR THAT THEY LACK UNDERSTANDING ON, WITH NO DIVINE REVELATION. My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children. Hosea 4:6

Where there is no revelation, people cast off restraint; but blessed is the one who Proverbs 29:18
21 The lips of the righteous feed many: but fools die for want of wisdom. Proverbs 10:21

NOTE: ABOUT 15% OF THIS TEACHING IS NOT COMPLETE YET. I KNOW THAT THIS SUBJECT IS ONE OF THE MOST CONTROVERSIAL SUBJECTS IN THE BODY OF CHRIST. BECAUSE ITS CRUCIAL TO GOD FOR THE BRIDE TO MAKE IT TO HEAVEN THE HOLY SPIRIT HAS ASKED ME TO PREACH AND TEACH THIS AS HE HEALS THE HEART OF THE BRIDE IN REVIVALS AND THE COMING OUTPOURING. THIS MAY COME AS A SHOCK TO MANY OF YOU BUT THE LORD TOLD ME IF THIS EVENT HAPPENED TODAY THAT OVER 95% OF THE CHURCH WOULD NOT GO, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT MUST HEAL THE HEART OF THE BRIDE TO CHANGE THAT. THIS IS ONE OF THE PRIMARY REASONS FOR THE END TIME OUTPOURING, IN THE MERCY OF THE LORD. FOR THOSE OF YOU THAT DON'T BELIEVE IN THE CATCHING AWAY, EVERYTHING IN THE KINGDOM REQUIRES FAITH SO I PRAY THAT YOU WILL GET A REVELATION. IF NOT PREPARE TO DIE A MARTYR IN THE TRIBULATION AND REFUSE HE MARK OF THE BEAST AND DO NOT DENY JESUS OR HE WILL DENY YOU TO THE FATHER. FOR THOSE THAT REFUSE TO CHANGE YOUR MIND ABOUT MID OR POST TRIB. MAKE SURE YOU GET READY NOW, AND KEEP LOOKING UP FOR HIS COMING AND YOU WILL BE FINE. OTHERWISE YOU TOO MAY FIND YOURSELF IN THE TRIB. I'M CONVINCED WHATS IN THIS TEACHING IS A OVERWHELMING AMOUNT OF BIBLICAL EVIDENCE TO CONVINCE MOST SKEPTICS. I DON'T KNOW WHATS IN A MAN'S HEART, BUT IT SEEMS MANY THAT TEACH CONTRARY TO THIS ARE SAYING GOD IS A LIAR IN HIS WORD. WE WILL BE JUDGED HARSHER AS TEACHERS AND PREACHERS BECAUSE WE HAVE A GREATER KNOWLEDGE, OR WE ARE SUPPOSED TO HAVE. I HAVE FOUND THAT MOST WITH CRITICAL RESPONSES THIS HAVE NOT BOTHERED TO READ IT ALL THE WAY THRU. THEIR HEART IS HARDENED TO THEIR, TEACHING OR OPINION THAT THEY ALREADY HAVE PRECONCEIVED IN THEIR MIND, AND THEY CANNOT BIBLICALLY SUPPORT THAT FEELING. ITS A LONG READ BUT WELL WORTH YOUR YOUR TIME. I HAVE NOT FOUND A TEACHING THIS DEEP OR THOROUGH TO DATE. IT'S ALL FACTS AND BIBLICALLY SOUND, WITHOUT ALL THE FLUFF AND OF A BOOK. I HAVE NOTHING TO PERSONALLY GAIN FROM THIS BUT THE KINGDOM AND A CROWN. I'M NOT INTERESTED IN FAME OR RICHES. BLESSINGS AND LOVE IN CHRIST TO Y'ALL.

The Book Of Revelation is the first of many clues of a Pre Tribulation Catching Away. Why?
First it is written in chronological order and after talking about the 7 Churches in Rev. 2 and 3 John no longer mentions The Church a door is closed and The Church is caught up into Heaven.

Let's examine Revelation 2 and 3. Jesus rebukes and warns 5 of the 7 Churches and only praises 2 of them.

7 Blessings are promised by Jesus to those that overcome. All seven of the blessings are Heavenly Blessings which means we have to make it to Heaven to receive them. There are only two ways to get to Heaven which is we either must die or be caught up to Heaven. The 7 blessings are:
TO HE THAT OVER COMETH.

1. Will eat of The Tree Of Life. Revelation 2:
2. Will not be hurt by the 2nd. Death. Revelation 2:11
3. Will eat the hidden manna, and be given a white stone with a new name written in it. Revelation 2:17
4. Will be given power over the nations. Revelation 2:26
5. Will be clothed in white raiment, and not be blotted out of The Book Of Life. But Jesus will confess their name before The Father and the Angels. This presents a problem for the once saved always saved doctrine. It makes it clear that ones name can INFACT BE BLOTED OUT OF THE BOOK OF LIFE, AND IF OUR SINS ARE ALREADY FORGIVEN IN ADVANCE HOW IS IT THAT JESUS SAYS WE MUST OVERCOME TO BE CAUGHT UP. Revelation 3:5
6. Will sit with Jesus on His thrown as He sat with His Father at His Thrown when He over cometh. Revelation 3:21
7. Will inherit all things. Revelation 21:7

On the other side of the scale those that are not overcomers are those that repent not and:

1. Leave their first love.
2. Being Luke Warm, not being on fire for God.
3. Holding false doctrine.
4. Faint in well doing.
5. Don't Endure tribulation.
6. Deny the faith.
7. Not keeping GOD'S Word/COMMANDMENTS

A OVERCOMER OVERCOMES THESE THINGS.

Jesus says he will remove their candlesticks, puke them out of His mouth, fight them with the sword in His mouth, blot their name out of the book of life, CAST THEM INTO GREAT TRIBULATION, Etc. If they do not repent. IF THEY ARE NOT CAST INTO GREAT TRIBULATION IF THEY REPENT DOES THIS NOT MEAN THAT THEY WILL BE CAUGHT UP. THIS FACT ALONE IS ALREADY A CLEAR INDICATION OF A PRE TRIBULATION CATCHING AWAY AND WE ARE JUST GETTING STARTED.
The list goes on. Jesus only complements 2 of the churches and rebukes the other 5. There are many other things that are listed by Paul in the epistles, also Revelation 21:8, and in the Gospels. I think most of us know what sin is. The reason though that there's no power in most of the Church including the Pentecostal and Charismatic churches is because too many are believing, teaching, and preaching the EXAGGERATED GRACE DOCTRINE. I only know a few that believe that doctrine and are still walking close to the Lord as Overcomer's and are CARRIERS OF THE GLORY OF GOD, so that a powerful anointing actually flows thru them. Those that think they don't need to repent from their sin have a huge problem in what the Apostles said to the Churches, what Jesus said to the seven Churches in Revelation 2-3, and what Jesus said in Rev.21.8, what Jesus also said in the parables, and what he said said in the Gospels. Such as you are my friend only if you obey my commandments. John 15:14, 1 John 5:3. This means we must walk in Holiness and right standing with God, in repentance when we mess up. Then The Lord's Grace and Righteousness will surly cover our short comings. Truth is once saved always saved doctrine is preached mostly by seeker friendly preachers, most of which are knee deep in sin themselves and otherwise afraid to preach the truth and those deceived by this group mostly are as well. Everywhere I go I find a large percentage of CHRISTIANS that need deliverance and their hearts healed The Exaggerated Grace Preachers Have cherry picked a few pet verses to try to prove their point, and if you read and believe and do The Bible as a whole, most of you will agree that the Exaggerated Grace message is clearly a lie from the Pits Of Hell.

So this being said let's look at the parables.

MATTHEW 7:21-24
21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:

This is referring to those which many have actually carried the Anointing Of The Lord. When Jesus says He never knew them if you look up knew in the HEBREW and The Greek it means to have a intimate relationship with, as we have with our spouse. Jesus is saying that he never had a intimate walk with them. This is a scary verse that destroys the EXAGGERATED GRACE DOCTRINE. In verse 24 Jesus is the rock that a wise man builds his house on.

MATTHEW 24:37-51
37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
38 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,
39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?
46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.
47 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.
48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;
49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;
50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,
51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Luke 12:37-48
Like the days of Lot, and Noah so shall these days be.
One woman taken in the field one left,
One woman taken in the mill one left.
If the goodman new when the thief cometh his house would not be broken up. Jesus will come like a thief in the night.
Blessed will be the servant doing what he is supposed to when his Lord comes.
The others will be appointed their portion with the hypocrites.
There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Well if I found myself in the Trib. That's what I would be doing.

37 Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them.
38 And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants.
39 And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through.
40 Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not.
41 Then Peter said unto him, Lord, speakest thou this parable unto us, or even to all?
42 And the Lord said, Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his lord shall make ruler over his household, to give them their portion of meat in due season?
43 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.
44 Of a truth I say unto you, that he will make him ruler over all that he hath.
45 But and if that servant say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken;
46 The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers.
47 And that servant, which knew his lord's will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes.
48 But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.

THE PARABLE OF THE TEN VIRGINS IS A CATCHING AWAY PARABLE.
1 THEN shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.
2 And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.
3 They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:
4 But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
5 While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.
6 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.
7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.
8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.
9 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.
10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.
11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.
12 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.
13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
Mathew 25:1-13

They were not ready. The oil could refer to the oil of The Holy Spirit. Of course we cannot buy that, although people try, look at Simon the Sorcerer. Bottom line they were not ready. It clearly states there was a door that was shut. The Wedding Feast Of The Lamb is defiantly being held in Heaven at The Father's house as is JEWISH tradition.
Just as when John's Spirit was caught up into Heaven at the beginning of Revelation 4, there was A DOOR THAT OPENED. This Door is to The Wedding Chamber of The Bridegroom's Father's House.

THE NEXT PARABLE IS THE UNPROFITABLE SERVANT.

14 For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods.
15 And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey.
16 Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made them other five talents.
17 And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two.
18 But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid his lord's money.
19 After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them.
20 And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more.
21 His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.
22 He also that had received two talents came and said, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me two talents: behold, I have gained two other talents beside them.
23 His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.
24 Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed:
25 And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine.
26 His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed:
27 Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury.
28 Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents.
29 For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath.
30 And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

HE WAS CAST INTO OUTER DARKNESS WHICH IS THE TRIBULATION. THIS PARABLE IS A VISUAL OF THE SEPARATION, OF THE CATCHING AWAY.

Also in the parables there are examples of separation. Good fish from bad fish, sheep from goats, and wheat from thorns. What do all these things have in common, they are all found together. Some of the separation takes place at the catching away, the rest takes place in the Tribulation and when Jesus returns to rule and reign.
In the Church we have wheat and thorns, sheep and goats, good fish, and bad fish.
In Jesus day they had a long board with small stones glued under it, that a mule was walked back and across it. This separated the hard shell from the wheat. THIS IS CALLED A TRIBULUM IN THE LATIN, THE ROOT WORD FOR THE TRIBULATION.

1 AND Jesus answered and spake unto them again by parables, and said,
2 The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son,
3 And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come.
4 Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage.
5 But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise:
6 And the remnant took his servants, and entreated them spitefully, and slew them.
7 But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth: and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city.
8 Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy.
9 Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage.
10 So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests.
11 And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment:
12 And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.
13 Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
14 For many are called, but few are chosen.

THIS IS IMPLYING THAT THOSE THAT DO NOT HAVE A SPOTLESS WEDDING GARMENT WITHOUT SPOT OR WRINKLE WILL BE CAST INTO THE OUTER DARKNESS OF THE TRIBULATION FOR MANY ARE CALLED, BUT FEW ARE CHOSEN.

BECAUSE FEW CHOOSE TO BE CHOSEN.

IN MATTHEW 18 THE EVIL SERVANT DID NOT FORGIVE AFTER HE WAS FORGIVEN. HE WAS GIVEN TO THE TORMENTORS WHICH COULD BE A VISUAL OF THE TRIBULATION, OR ONE CAN ALSO BE LOST TO HELL FOR UNFORGIVNESS ACCORDING TO JESUS.

35 Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning;
36 And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him immediately.
37 Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them.
38 And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants.
Luke 12:35-38

THIS MAKES IT CLEAR THAT WE NEED TO BE WATCHING FOR OUR LORD'S RETURN.

Now before we look at more NT scripture on the Catching Away, let's look at some OT verses that most people don't even know exists on the Catching Away.

16 Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name.
17 And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.
18 Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.
Malachi 3:16-18

NOT ONLY IS THERE A CATCHING AWAY, BUT THERE IS A BOOK IN HEAVEN FOR THOSE GOING. THIS IS ONE OF AT LEAST SIX BOOKS IN HEAVEN. THEY ARE: I will substantiate with further verses that the Book Of Remembrance is for those that will be caught to Heaven in The Catching Away.
1. The Lamb's Book Of Life. Rev. 3:5, 20
2. The Book Of The Living. Isa.4:3
3. The Book Of Deeds. Rev. 20
4. The Book Of Wars Of The Lord. Ps.69:28
5. The Book Of Remembrance. Malachi 3:16-18
6. THE BOOK OF TEARS. Psalms 56:8

THE BOOK OF REMEMBRANCE IS THE BOOK LISTING THOSE TO BE CAUGHT UP.

16 Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name.
17 And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.
18 Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.
Malachi 3:16-18
WHAT DID THEY DO?
1. They gave, according to previous verses in same chapter.
2. They feared God and kept His commandments.
3. They witnessed one to another, they loved and meditated on The Name Of The Lord.
4. They served God.

IN THE DAY THESE BOOKS WERE WRITTEN THERE WERE NO CHAPTERS, IT WAS ALL ONE LETTER. CHAPTERS WERE ADDED LATER. Malachi 4 goes on to talk all about the tribulation, right after we hear about being spared from this if we are in The Book Of Remembrance.

1 FOR, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.
2 But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.
3 And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of hosts.
4 Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments.
5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:
6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.
Malachi 4:1-6

13 O that thou wouldest hide me in the grave, that thou wouldest keep me secret, until thy wrath be past, that thou wouldest appoint me a set time, and remember me!
14 If a man die, shall he live again? all the days of my appointed time will I wait, till my change come.
Job 14:13-14
LOOK AT THAT, IT SAYS REMEMBER ME!!!
From the inspiration of The Holy Spirit Job knew WRITE ABOUT praying that the LORD REMEMBER HIM, and keep IN SECRET HIDING UNTIL HIS WRATH WAS PAST, about the changing in a twinkling of an eye, and about an appointed time. Job is the oldest book in the Bible.

2 God is jealous, and the LORD revengeth; the LORD revengeth, and is furious; the LORD will take vengeance on his adversaries, and he reserveth wrath for his enemies.
Nahum 1:2

The Lamb pours out His wrath in the first part of the Tribulation the Father pours out His wrath in the second part of the Tribulation. This starts in Revelation 6:1-17 The above verse and several NT Scriptures make it clear that God reserves His wrath for His enemies.

15 And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;
16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:
17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?
Revelation 6:15-17. THE LAMBS WRATH BEING POURED OUT EARLY.

Nahum 1:2 clearly says that God's wrath is not for us but reserved for His enemies. God has no wrath for those of us that are obedient to Jesus. He took all the wrath there was for us AND GAVE IT TO JESUS on the cross. As long as we remain in Christ Jesus all that He has for us is LOVE. Here are the other versus that clearly show that we are not subject to His wrath, so like all the other times in the bible the Lord will once again separate His Overcomers.
Here are other verses supporting this verse that we are not subject to the Lord's wrath.

18 Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the LORD's wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.
Zephaniah 1:18
WHY WOULD HE NOT CATCH US AWAY IF HE IS GOING MAKE SPEEDY RIDDANCE OF THOSE LEFT IN THE TRIB. THE TRIBULATION IS A SEPARATING FORCE.

Supporting NT verses.

18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
ROMANS 1:18

8 But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath,
9 Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile;
10 But glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile:
ROMANS 2:8-10
HERE'S INDIGNATION, AND WRATH TO ALL THOSE THAT ARE EVIL AND THOSE THAT DO NOT OBEY THE TRUTH. TAKE NOTE YOU ARE GOING TO SEE THAT WORD INDIGNATION IN SOME COMING VERSES. IT'S PROMISING THEM THAT DO EVIL TRIBULATION, BUT ONCE AGAIN SEPARATING THEM THAT WORKETH GOOD.

6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.
Ephesians 5:6
AGAIN WRATH ON THE DISOBEDIENT NOT THE RIGHTEOUS.

9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,
1 Thessalonians 5:9
WE ARE NOT APPOINTED TO GOD'S WRATH. VERY, VERY CLEAR.

3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.
Ephesians 2:3
THOSE NOT IN CHRIST ARE CHILDREN OF WRATH.

GENESES 29 DESCRIBES JACOB'S TROUBLE FOR TWO WEEKS, (2 SEVEN YEAR PERIODS) THAT HE HAD TO SERVE. ONE WEEK (SEVEN YEARS) FOR THE WIFE THAT WAS NOT PRETTY, AND ANOTHER WEEK (7 years) FOR HER SISTER THAT HE WANTED, AND THOUGHT THAT HE WAS GETTING ORIGINALLY. THEN Jeramiah 30:7 SAYS THAT TROUBLE IS COMING TO JACOB (ISRAEL) AGAIN.

7 Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob's trouble; but he shall be saved out of it.
Jeramiah 30:7
Just like in ROMANS 11, and The Book Of Revelation says, this say's ISRAEL will be saved.
Rabbis say that Jacob's trouble was with the Holocaust, which birthed the Nation Of Israel being pulled back together from the 4 corners of the Earth as Bible Prophecy predicted.
But there is one more 7 year period coming which is the tribulation which will birth the 2nd. Coming of The MESIAH.
THIS IS JACOB'S TROUBLE (ISRAEL'S) NOT THE CHURCH'S.

TEN REASONS WHY THERE WILL BE A PRE TRIBULATION CATCHING AWAY.
1.Tribulation is Jacob's trouble not for the Church. Jeramiah 30:7
2.Tribulation time to judge nations for their sin. not the Church. Rev. 11:18
3.Tribulation is time to destroy the sinners, not Christians. ISAHAH 13:9
4.Tribulation to bring a remnant Tribe of the Jewish Through the fire Isaiah 1:9, not the Bride.
5.Church not appointed to wrath. Lamb pours out His wrath 1st. Half of Tribulation The Father pours His wrath out 2nd. half of Trib. 1Thesoilonians 5:9
6.The Lord said we should pray to escape these things. If no escape He would not ask us to pray for escape. Luke 21:36
7. Revelation 3:10 The Lord said He would keep us from the hour of testing that will come onto all those on the Earth. He said He would keep us from it, not in it.
8.Hebrews 4:9 a rest for God's people. Greek word for rest Sabaton which is where SABATH comes from. There's a eternal rest/Sabath for God's people in Heaven.
9. Marriage supper of the lamb is in Heaven, Bride needs to be there.
10. The Bema Judgement is in Heaven, during Mid Trib. The Bride needs to be there. Revelation 11

19 Thy dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead.
20 Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.
21 For, behold, the LORD cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.
Isaiah 26:19-21

THESE OT VERSES MIRROR 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18
It talks about The Resurrection Of The Dead In Christ, It talks about The Door as it does in Rev. 4:1 and MATTHEW 25:1-13 The Parable Of The 10 Virgins it says THEY WENT INTO THE CHAMBERS AND SHUT THE DOOR. It uses that word indignation again, and it also says The Earth Shall Disclose The Blood of those slain just as it does in Revelation. MOST IMPORTANTLY IT SAYS TO COME INTO THE LORD'S CHAMBERS AND HIDE THYSELF FROM THE INDIGNATION. THE BRIDEGROOM'S WEDDING CHAMBERS.

In Judaism when a man and woman get married, they go into a WEDDING CHAMBER at The Father's House with a canopy called the Hoppa and SHUT THE DOOR and consummate their marriage.

EXODUS 19 IS MIRRORED TO THE COMING CATCHING AWAY. MOSES WENT UP MT. SINAI TO MEET WITH THE LORD FOR THE LAW. PAUL WENT UP MT. SINAI IN ARABIA FOR THREE YEARS AND CAME BACK AND WROTE ABOUT THE RETURN OF THE LORD AND THE CATCHING AWAY THRU OUT 1 THESSALONIANS WHICH WAS THE FIRST EPISTLE WRITTEN, AS THEY ARE NOT IN CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER. THE LORD GAVE PAUL THE REVELATION ON MT. SINAI OF THE CATCHING AWAY. HERE ARE NINE EXAMPLES.

1. ISRAEL is called a peculiar people. Exodus 19:5
The Church is called a peculiar people. 1 Peter 2:9
2. ISRAEL is called a Holy Nation. Exodus 19:6
The Church is a Holy Nation. 1 Peter 2:9
3. ISRAEL Is a Kingdom of Priests. Exodus 19:6
The Church is Kings and Priests To The Lord. Revelation 1:6
4. The Lord came on the third day. Exodus 19:11
The Lord raises us up on the third day. Hosea 6:1-3
5. The Lord's voice was as a trumpet. Exodus19:16
The Lord shall descended from Heaven with the Trump Of God. 1 Thessalonians 4:16
6. The Lord came down in the clouds. Exodus 19:16
Jesus will come down in the clouds. Acts 1:9-10
7. The Lord answered Moses in a voice. Exodus 19:19
There will be a voice of the Arch Angel. 1 Thessalonians 4:16
8. The Lord descended in fire. Exodus 19:20
Jesus will descend in a flaming fire. 2 Thessalonians 1:7-10
9. The Lord came down and Moses came up. Exodus 19:20
The Saints will be caught up to meet The Lord who comes down in the air.

THERE ARE 4 REASONS WHY MANY BELIEVE THAT THE CATCHING AWAY IS MID TRIB OR POST TRIB. POST TRIB. ABSOLUTELY MAKES NO SENSE. THAT WOULD MEAN GOD WOULD MAKE US GO THRU THE ENTIRE TRIB. AND BRING US UP TO HEAVEN JUST TO DO A U TURN AND COME RIHGT BACK. THE FOUR REASONS WHY ARE:

1. Some people believe that The Last Trump described by Paul in 1 CORINTHIANS 15:52 correlates with the 7th. Trump of The Angels in the Book Of Revelation. Not true and I will show you why.
2. Some people believe that MATHEW 24 puts the Catching Away Post TRIB. Also not correct and I will show you why.
3. Some people believe that MATHEW 13:30 proves that the left behind doctrine is false. This too is defiantly not the case and I'll show you why. IN FACT MATTHEW 13:30 PROVES THE OPPOSITE, IT PROVES THE LEFT BEHIND DOCTRINE TRUE. OHHH THE DEVIL IS A LIAR.
4. 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4
According to this there will be a falling away first. We are defiantly seeing that right now. I've heard Prophecy Teachers say that nothing needs to happen for the Catching Away to take place. That's not correct. The Anti Christ must be revealed first. I believe that will be occurring in the very near future, I evan dare to say 2015. We will see very soon if that's correct.
Now another thing I have heard people say there's no temple yet. That's right and there does not need to be one up and running until just before mid TRIB. Mid Trib. Is when the Man Of Perdition is going to stop animal sacrifices, appear in the temple and say he is God, and break the peace treaty. From what I hear the temple construction is already in planning, and I'm sure the Temple Mount will be involved in the Peace treaty. This does not preclude a Pre Trib Catching Away.

1 Corinthians 15:52-53
52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.

NOW MANY INCORRECTLY THINK THIS REFERS TO THE 7Th. TRUMP OF THE ANGEL IN THE BOOK OF REVELATION. ITS NOT THE TRUMP OF A ANGEL. ITS THE TRUMP OF GOD. LET'S CROSS IT WITH 1 THESSALONIANS 4:16-17

16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
17 Then we which are alive and remain 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.

Remember in Revelation 4 when John said God's voice sounded like a Trumpet. This could either be The Voice Of God, or a Trump Of God. IT IS CLEARLY NOT THE TRUMP OF A ANGEL.

When the verse refers to the last trump it's talking about The Last Trump at The Feast Of Trumpets. Let me explain.

First let me say because we are from The West we look at The Bible. Thru Western Eyes.
The Bible was written by Jews, it's focused at ISRAEL and surrounding areas, Jesus was a Jew. When God spoke to them and Jesus taught them they did so in terms and words that they would understand and relate to. They had Middle Eastern understanding and eyes.
We get confused on so many things and it almost seems that the Bible conflicts with itself because we are looking at it with western eyes not Middle Eastern eyes, understanding JEWISH traditions and customs.
So when some things get explained from a Hebraic perspective it can clarify things immensely.

THE LORD uses His Feast Days to mark Biblical Events, and to mark His Signs In The Heavens.
Here's the picture.
Passover represents The Blood.
Pentecost represents The Holy Spirit.
Tabernacles is the Kingdom.

YOU HAD 3 FEASTS OF THE LORD THAT YOU CELEBRATED WITH YOUR HARVEST CYCLES EACH YEAR.

1. PASSOVER.
2. PENTECOST.
3. TABERNACLES.

Each one of these feasts have a special harvest that go with it.
Passover is barley. Harvested in March and April.
Pentecost is wheat. Harvested in May and June.
Tabernacles is fruit. It's called the ingathering. Harvested in August, and September.

Here is The Sequence Of Events for The End Time Harvest.

They all have to be harvested in a different manner.
Wheat is winnowed. You shake kit, throw it up in the air, and the wind separates the stock and chaff off it.

Barley has a hard shell. In Jesus day they a log board with gravel glued to the bottom of it. They would put the gravel side on the wheat and walk a mile over the board, separating the shell and stalk from it.
This board was called a TRIBULUM which is the Latin root word for tribulation.

The Grapes are crushed.

In the Harvest Field you have 3 Harvest Cycles.
1. You harvest The First Fruits first, separate them and take them to the Temple Storehouse first.
2. Then you count the Omar. Harvesting the field however leaving the four corners. (God commanded the four corners be left for the poor)
In MATTHEW 24 when Jesus says He sends His Angels at the sound of a trump you say that's the Catching Away, but no that's the gleaning of 4 corners, which is the last part of the harvest.
Here is the picture.
Barley Harvest you have no levin at passover, levin is representative of sin. You have a 7 day period of no levin representing our seven years in Heaven.
At Pentecost you have levin when your 144,000 go into the Tribulation. They are dealing with levin/sin on the earth. They are Caught Up INTO HEAVEN in Revelation 14.
The Grape Harvest is in Revelation 14:20. Called The Wine Press Of The Wrath Of God. Angels were throwing grapes in the wine press at the end of the Tribulation.
The Barely Harvest has no levin, that's the Overcomer's that are Caught Up.
144,000 Jews go into the Tribulation. But they are Caught Up into Heaven in Revelation 14.
Then again at the end of the Tribulation God sends His Angels to get the four corners which are the remains after the harvest.

Now the Last Trump can also be describing the Last Trump at The Feast Of Trumpets.

25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.
26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.
27 So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?
28 He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?
29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.
30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.
Matthew 13:25-30
NOW SOME SAY THE LEFT BEHIND TEACHING IS FALSE BASED ON THE ABOVE VERSES. BUT THEY INFACT ERROR IN THIS TEACHING. THIS IS WHY.
As you can see in the harvest teaching the Harvest begins at The Catching Away, and cycles thru the Tribulation. The Tribulation from the first Catching Away that begins it, to the Christians that are Martyred all the way thru there is a separating force. The thorns are left in the Tribulation at The Catching Away that is being bunched up together. The Tribulation Scriptures continually talk about the land and many of those on it being burned by God's wrath. Therefore MATHEW 13:25-30 supports the Left Behind Teaching, it does not conflict with it.

HERE ARE 3 PARAEL APPLICATIONS TO OUR 7 YEARS IN HEAVEN.

1. 6 Days of creation represent 6 1000 year periods. We have had roughly 6000 years since Adam's creation.
The sentence thousandth year is The Millinium Reign of Christ.
THE SEVEN DAYS OF CREATION ARE REPRESENTATIVE OF 7000 YEARS.

2. ENOCH WAS THE SEVENTH MAN FROM ADAM AND ENOCH PLEASED GOD SO ENOUCH WAS CAUGHT UP. (TRANSLATED)
In the Greek translated is transfer, transported, or change sides.
In Hebrew took him as in God took him, to carry away, to seize by force upward, to take up. The tradition of the JEWS is that Enoch was born and also caught up on Passover.

3. The 7 days of creation are representative of The 7 Years that we are going to be in Heaven.

The Church has been on Pentecost for two thousand years.
PROPHETICALLY THE NEXT FEAST TO BE FULFILLED IS THE FEAST OF TRUMPETS.
This Feast is described in Leviticus 23.
This is also known as Rosh Hashanah. It's the JEWISH New Year.
The name "Rosh Hashanah" is not used in the Bible to discuss this holiday. The Bible refers to the holiday as Yom Ha-Zikkaron (the day of remembrance) or Yom Teruah (the day of the sounding of the shofar). The holiday is instituted.

IS IT A COINCIDENCE THAT THIS IS CALLED THE DAY OF REMEMBRANCE, AND THOSE BEING CAUGHT UP ARE IN THE BOOK OF REMEMBRANCE?

There are 100 Shofar Blasts.

THE LAST TRUMP IS THE LONGEST AND THE LOUDEST, AT LEAST 10 SECONDS.

EXODUS 19 THE MIRRORS THE CATCHING AWAY.
EXODUS 19 TALKS ABOUT A LONG, LOUD TRUMPET BLAST.

IN JESUS TIME TWO DAYS WOULD BE MARKED OFF FOR THIS FEAST, AND THEY WOULD HAVE TO WATCH FOR THE SLIVER OF THE NEW MOON, FOR IT TO START. SO NO MAN KNEW THE DAY OR THE HOUR!

IT MARKS THE DAY OF ADAM'S CREATION.

The Hebrew name for Rosh HaShanah is Yom Teruah or the day of the awakening blast. Followed by the Days of Awe. This alone presents a strong case for a Pre Trib. Catching Away. THE CORONATION OF THE KING, the resurrection of the dead, the joy of the Messianic kingdom, and the wedding of the Messiah are among the many themes associated with Rosh HaShanah. A strong theme to associate with Teruah is to "awake." Teruah can be translated "shout". These themes are a remembrance of 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17

This passage is full of HEBREW idoms that especially associate with Rosh Hashanah, the Feast of Trumpets and therefore this passage is cultural evidence that Rosh HaShanah will be the appointed day of the Catching Away of The Bride, and the Resurrection Of The Dead In Christ.
Since a significant theme of Rosh HaShanah is that of the wedding of the Messiah, allows us to look at the ancient customs associated with the Jewish wedding ceremony to see if there are practices that relate with the many themes of this festival. Prior to the actual betrothal (a important legal transaction), the woman accept man's proposal of marriage by drinking a cup of wine. This is why Jesus passed the cup of wine at the Last Supper. When we partake of the wine of communion we are accepting Jesus as our groom. We are to remember Him, and not whore ourselves, soiling our wedding garments. The man would then pay a bride price. Jesus paid the ultimate price for us with His life. The man would then give his betrothed gifts. Jesus gave us the Holy Spirit, Gifts Of The Spirit, and many other gifts and blessings. The man would then leave for a period of one to two years to go build a place for us - a wedding chamber, (THE HOOPA)

3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. John:14:3

8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 2 Peter 3:8

Within 2 days or 2000 years Jesus will return for His bride!

When the wedding chamber is complete the Bridegroom picks up his Bride at midnight with a host of people with him both shouting and blowing the shofar. He takes the Bride to the wedding chamber called the Hoopa. Notice that the bride is taken from her familiar setting to a place where she has never been to, the home of the Bridegroom's Father. They would immediately go to the marriage supper and then enter the Hoppa ( Wedding Chamber) for a period of seven days to consummate the marriage. ROSH HASHANA IS ALSO KNOWN AS THE DAY OF OUR CONCEALMENT.

THE SEVEN DAYS THAT WE ARE CONCEALED CORRESPOND WITH THE SEVEN YEARS THE TRIBULATION IS UNLEASHED UNTO A UNBELIEVING WORLD.

When the seven days are complete TENS OF THOUSANDS OF US SAINTS WILL RETURN WITH JESUS.

Yom Kippur and Tabernacles will find their prophetic fulfillment.

MOST people believe that we "will not know the day or the hour of His appearing". They don't realize however, that this phrase taken from Matthew 24:36 is an actual common Hebrew idiom for Rosh HaShanah. Jesus' audience fully understood that what Jesus was saying was "I will come again on Rosh HaShanah at some point in the future". It would be like saying in America, "I'll see you again when we gather together to exchange presents. Or as Arnold says: I'LL BE BACK!!!" We automatically know that we are referring to Christmas. In like manner, we can expect to see our Messiah on a future Rosh HaShanah.

All the end time events are divinely planned and are not happening by accident. Furthermore,

The Catching Away will occur at an appointed time and God has revealed to us what the appointed times were and are in Leviticus 23 in His Festivals. On some Rosh HaShanah at the final blast of the shofar we will hear the shout of the archangel, and The Trump Of God, and we will dwell intimately in the presence of Jesus, while the Days of Awe and Hell are unleashed upon the earth.

ANOTHER THING IN JUDAISM WHEN A BRIDEGROOM TAKES A BRIDE IN MARRIAGE HE CANNOT GO TO WAR OR WORK FOR ONE YEAR THAT HE TAKES TO CHEER THE BRIDE UP.

This means we have to be in Heaven with Jesus that year before He returns with tens of thousands of His saints to fight The Battle Of Armageddon.

5 When a man hath taken a new wife, he shall not go out to war, neither shall he be charged with any business: but he shall be free at home one year, and shall cheer up his wife which he hath taken. Deuteronomy 25:5

The sixth year in Heaven is the destruction of Mystery Babylon which I'm fairly certain is what's left of the United States, which the present administration The Lord has rewarded us is presently doing a great job of destroying, which very soon will manifest in its fullness.

THE SEVENTH YEAR THE BRIDE MUST BE IN HEAVEN FOR OUR SHABOT (rest) WITH YHE GROOM. IT LOOKS LIKE THERE WILL BE A ONE YEAR WEDDING SUPPER. WHAT A PARTY THAT. WILL BE.

IN THE PASSOVER FEAST OF THE LORD THEY HAVE 4 CUPS EACH IS IDENTIFIED.

Cup#4 is turned upside down. JEWISH families send a child outside each time to see if The Prophet Elijah is there. If he is there Elijah will come in and turn the cup right side up.

JESUS ONLY NAMED 3 CUPS. Then the last cup that Jesus drank from He said was the last cup of suffering He said you will not be able to drink of this. I will not drink from it again until I drink of it anew with you in The Kingdom. IT'S THE CUP OF CONSUMMATION.

IF JESUS THOUGHT THE BRIDE WAS GOING TO BE HERE WHEN THE PROPHET ELIJAH SHOWS UP HE WOULD HAVE HAD THE FORTH UPSIDE DOWN CUP PRESENT.

Then Revelation nineteen. Tens of thousands of Saint come back as The Armies Of Heaven to watch the Anti Christ and his armies take their last butt whipping.

Those In Christ go back go rule as Kings and Priests for the 1000 year reign of Christ.

So let look at The New Testament Catching Away Bible verses. Like Jesus turning water to wine we saved YHE best for last.

THE FOLLOWING VERSE CAME FROM THE FIRST OF FOURTEEN EPISTLES THAT PAUL WROTE. HE RECEIVED THESE REVELATIONS IN THE 3 YEARS HE SPENT WITH THE LORD GETTING REVELATION ON MT. SINAI, WHERE MOSES WENT UP TO MEET WITH THE LORD AS MENTIONED IN GALATIANS. JESUS SAID LET ME TELL YOU HOW I'M GOING TO CATCH UP MY BRIDE. THE EPISTLES ARE NOT IN CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER.

For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
17 Then we which are alive and remain 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 THESSALONIANS 4:16-17
THE GREEK FOR CAUGHT UP IS HARPAZO IT MEANS TO SNATCH UP BY FORCE. ANOTHER MEANING IS TO YANK SOMEONE BY THE HAIR OUT OF DANGERS WAY. THIS PRETTY MUCH SAYS IT ALL.

Here's THE NEXT ONE.
9 Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself:
10 That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him: Ephesians 1:9

GATHERING TOGETHER IN THE GREEK MEANS TO SUM UP. TO SUM UP TOGETHER IN ONE PLACE.

IN THE DISPENSATION OF THE FULLNESS OF TIME MEANS THE END OF THE DISPENSATION OF GRACE WHICH IS THE CHUCH AGE THAT WE ARE IN RIGHT NOW. IT MEANS THAT GOD IS STILL EXTENDING HIS GRACE TO THE SINNER AND INSTEAD OF SEEING MASS JUDGEMENTS LIKE WE. WILL IN THE TRIB. WE SEE SELECTIVE JUDGEMENTS. UNTIL THE FULLNESS OF THE GENTILES COMES IN AT WHICH TIME THE CHURCH WILL BE CAUGHT UP. THE SELECTIVE JUDGEMENTS ARE ABOUT TO INTENSIFY SO THE LORD CAN BRING REVIVAL. PEOPLE ARE TOO COMFORTABLE RIGHT NOW AND THERE IS NOT ENOUGH HUNGER FOR GOD, TO BRING HIS OUTPOURING OF HIS SPIRIT ON ALL FLESH WHICH HE IS ABOUT TO DO.

25 For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.
26 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: ROMANS 11:25-26

HERE'S THE THIRD SCRIPTURE:

1 NOW we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, 2 Thessalonians 2:1

THE GREEK FOR GATHERING TOGETHER IS: episunagó IT MEANS ASSEMBLING OF ALL. A COMPLETE COLLECTING OF SOMETHING. THE LORD WILL BE GATHERING THE DEAD IN CHRIST AND THE OVER COMERS THAT ARE CAUGHT UP IN THE CLOUDS.

NOW NUMBER FOUR: 22 But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels,

23 To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect,
24 And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.
Hebrews 12:22-24

THE GREEK FOR GENERAL ASSEMBLY IS panéguris IT MEANS TO ASSEMBLE ALL IN ONE LOCATION. IT WILL BE A COLLECTING OF THE LIVING AND THE DEAD IN CHRIST, AS IN THE BOOK OF REVELATION THERE WILL BE A INNUMERABLE AMOUNT OF ANGELS THERE, GOD THE FATHER WILL BE THERE, JESUS WILL BE THERE. THE LIVING WILL HAVE BEEN CHANGED FROM MORTAL TO IMMORTALITY IN GLORIFIED, INCORRUPTIBLE BODIES LIKE JESUS HAS. IT'S A UNIVERSAL MEETING IN ONE PLACE.

NOW HERE IS A MIRRORED IMAGE OF IT FROM WHAT THE JEWS DO: THEY HAD A GENERAL ASSEMBLY THAT WOULD MEET EVERY SEVEN YEARS, THAT INCLUDED WOMAN AND CHILDREN. BUT A GROUP OF ELDERS MET FROM 410 TO 310 BC. THEY WERE MEMBERS OF THE JEWISH SANHEDRIN had 70 MEMBERS. EZRA, AND NEHEMIAH EXPANDED IT FROM 70 TO 120. THEY WERE BROUGHT TOGETHER BY THE SCRIBE EZRA. THEY WROTE THE ORAL TRADITION SO THAT IT WOULD NOT BE LOST. HAGAII, NEHEMIAH, AND ZACHARIAH, AND MALACHI WERE PART OF THE GROUP. THEY TOOK THE SCROLLS AND PUT TOGETHER THE TORAH, THE PROPHETS AND THE WRITINGS. THEY FORMALISED THENPRAYER THAT WERE SAID AT THE TEMPLE AT THE FEASTS THAT THEY DO EVEN TILL THIS DAY WITHOUT A TEMPLE. THIS WENT ON FOR OVER A HUNDRED YEARS. THEY GAVE THE TORAH SCROLLS TO COMMON MEN IN THE TEMPLE SO THEY COULD READ IT.
THE ISRALI KNESSET POLITCAL BODY HAS 120 MEMBERS AND WAS MODELED AFTER THEM. GUESS WHAT ELSE WAS MIRRORED AND MODELED AFTER THEM?

JESUS KNEW THE TEMPLE WOULD BE DESTROYED IN 70 A.D.
THATS WHY JESUS SAID SAID THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS IN US, AND PAUL SAID IN 1 CORINTHIANS 3:16 THAT OUR BODIES ARE THE TEMPLE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.

IN ACTS 1:15 WHEN THE BRIDE RECEIVED THE HOLY SPIRIT IN THE UPPER ROOM THERE WAS 120 OF THEM. THAT NUMBER WAS NO RANDOM NUMBER.

THE CHURCH WAS MODELED AFTER THE JEWISH GENERAL ASSEMBLY. THE APOSTLES HELD ONTO THE ORAL TEACHINGS AND STORIES OF JESUS. THEY HAD THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST AS THE HOLY SPIRIT GAVE IT TO THEM AND WROTE THE EPISTLES. THEY GOT TOGETHER AND WROTE THE GOSPELS SO THEY WOULD NOT BE LOST. THEY WERE PUT INTO SCROLLS SO THE COMMON MAN COULD READ THEM.

THE JEWISH GENERAL ASSEMBLY WOULD MEET EVERY SEVEN YEAR AND EVERYONE INCLUDING WOMAN AND CHILDREN WOULD BE IN ATTENDANCE. A SPECIAL BEMA/PLATFORM THAT THE KING WOULD GO UP ON. THE KING WAS HANDED A TORAH SCROLL, THE KING WOULD HAND THE SCROLL TO THE PRESIDENT OF THE TEMPLE AND HE WOULD HAND IT TO THE HIGH PRIEST WHO WOULD BLESS IT AND HAND IT BACK TO YHE KING. THE KING THEN WOULD READ WHAT WAS WRITTEN ON THE SCROLL TO THE PUBLIC.

THIS IS THE ONLY TIME GOLD TRUMPETS WERE USED, GOLD REPRESENTS DIETY, SILVER REDEMPTION, AND BRASS HUMANITY. SHOFARS ARE USED ON NEW MOONS AND THE LORD'S FEAST DAYS. SILVER IS USED ON YOM KIPPUR AND CERTAIN DAYS. SILVER IS ALSO USED FOR THE CALLING OF THE CAMP, AND THE JOURNEYING OF ISRAEL INTO THE WILDERNESS.
ON THE CATCHING AWAY THERE WILL BE A TRUMP OF GOD THAT WILL UNDOUBTEDLY BE WITH A GOLD TRUMPET.

AFTER THE MEETING IN THE AIR IN THE CLOUDS EVERYONE WILL BE TRANSLATED TO HEAVEN. WITH GLORIFIED BODIES I'M SURE WE WILL BE MOVING LIKE THE ANGELS AT THE SPEED OF THOUGHT. NOT THAT GOD COULD NOT, OR WON'T TRANSLATE US THERE WITH A FEW WORDS.

IN THE BOOK OF REVELATION 5, WE SEE JESUS INTRODUCED ON THE THROWN ROOM FLOOR AS THE LION OF THE TRIBE OF JUDAH. JESUS WAS A LAMB, HE WILL HOWEVER BE RETURNING AS A LION, THE KING OF KINGS AND THE LORD OF LORDS.

ON THE BEMA THE KING READ A SCROLL. JESUS IN THE HEAVENLY TEMPLE ON THE BEMA PLATFORM JESUS WILL HAVE A 7 SEAL BOOK. JESUS IS THE ONLY ONE WORTHY TO BREAK THE SEALS. THIS WILL BE THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY IN HEAVEN.

IN THE HISTORY OF THE BIBLE THE RIGHTEOUS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN GIVEN THE LUXARY TO ESCAPE GOD'S JUDGEMENTS AND WRATH. GOD'S WRATH IS RESERVED FOR HIS ENEMIES. JESUS EVEN SAID WE ARE HIS FRIEND AND BROTHER ONLY IF WE OBEY HIS COMMANDMENTS OTHERWISE WE ARE HIS ENEMY. SO MUCH FOR SATAN'S EXAGGERATED GRACE LIES FTOM HELL.
THERE ARE EIGHT EXAMPLES IN THE BIBLE THAT THE RIGHTEOUS HAVE BEEN GIVE A WAY OF ESCAPE. ITS THE NATURE OF GOD WHO IS THE SAME YESTERDAY, TODAY, AND FOREVER.

1. Noah, Hebrews 11:7
2. Noah, Genesis 18:25
3. Lot 19:22 Genesis
4. Egypt Exodus 12:23
5. Destruction of Jerusalem 21:21
6. Edom, Mohab, and Eman. Daniel 11:41
7. Rev. 7:3 144,000 JEWS sealed with seal of God for protection, and they are caught away.
8. EZEKIAL 14:13-14 Noah, Daniel, and Job.
Luke 21:36 JESUS SAID TO PRAY TO BE FOUND WORTHY TO ESCAPE THESE THINGS, IF THERE IS NO ESCAPE WHY WOULD HE TELL US TO PRAY. NOTICE JESUS SAID WE MUST BE FOUND WORTHY AS WELL.

SOMETHING ELSE TO THINK OF.
I PERSONALLY DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW ANYONE CAN BELIEVE THAT THE FATHER WILL PUT HIS SEAL OF PROTECTION ON 144,000 JEWS, AND CATCH THEM AWAY, AND PROTECT A BUNCH OF MUZLIM ARABS IN JORDAN, AND THEN MAKE THE BRIDE OF HIS SON GO INTO WRATH IN THE TRIBULATION. WOULD ANY OF YOU MEN DO THAT TO YOUR BRIDE? WOULD ANY OF YOU WOMAN WANT ANYTHING TO DO WITH A MAN THAT DID THAT TO YOU? IF MEN BEING EVIL PROTECT THEIR BRIDE, HOW MUCH MORE DO YOU THINK THAT THE LORD WHO IS LOVE AND PERFECT IS GOING TO PROTECT HIS BRIDE, FROM HIS OWN WRATH.


ANOTHER REASON THE BRIDE WILL BE IN HEAVEN IS GOD HAS ETERNAL REST FOR US DURING THE TRIBULATION.

11 Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.
HEBREWS 4:11

There are three DIFFERENT Sabbaths mentioned in Hebrews 4. The Sabbath for Christians in this text is not the weekly Sabbath but the eternal Sabbath rest in heaven. The common expression "brother Jones crossed the Jordan last night" meaning, that Jones died and has gone into the promised land of heaven. Paul wanted to die and go be with Christ: Phil 1:21-24 The Sabbath rest in the promised land is the type of the true Sabbath rest we will experience at the second coming of Christ.


#1: Weekly Sabbath

Given to Israel in Ex 16 for first time.
"And God rested on the seventh day from all His works." Heb 4:4



#2: Promised land physical rest

Some of those wandering in the wilderness failed to enter the Sabbath rest of the promised land because of disobedience Heb 4:6
"For if Joshua had given them rest" Heb 4:8



#3: Spiritual fulfillment of land promise

In heaven at second coming:
God through David in Ps 95 "would not have spoken of another day after that." Heb 4:7

This is the last place a Sabbatarian would ever want to go to prove that he should keep the weekly Sabbath! First in v4 God spoke of the weekly Sabbath, then he spoke of a different Sabbath. The one of Hebrews 4:10. This verse identifies that a Sabbath remains, but it is not the weekly Sabbath! Moses gave Israel the weekly Sabbath first in Ex 16. Joshua gave Israel the promised land rest.
Notice that the first weekly Sabbath keeping occurred in Ex 16. It was based upon the fact that God rested on the seventh day of creation. The physical land rest when Joshua led them into Palestine was also based upon God resting on the seventh day. Only when we get to heaven, will we truly rest from our labours!


Heb 4:4-11 "For He has thus said somewhere concerning the seventh day,

"And God rested on the seventh day from all His works"

and again in this passage,

"They shall not enter My rest."

The weekly Sabbath and the land Sabbath in Palestine were both based upon this verse

God spoke of another rest after Joshua, through David in Ps 95 "For if Joshua had given them rest (through the weekly Sabbath), He (God through David) would not have spoken of another day (eternal rest in heaven) after that."
Joshua & Jesus were forerunners into the promised lands; Joshua of Palestine; Jesus of Heaven: Heb 6:11-13;19-20 full assurance of hope...inherit the promises...God made the promise to Abraham...this hope we have as ...one which enters within the veil, where Jesus has entered as a forerunner for us. Joshua was forerunner into physical promised land, Jesus into spiritual promise land.

The Highland Clearances. M.P.

The Highland Clearances (Scottish Gaelic: Fuadach nan Gàidheal, the "expulsion of the Gael") was the forced displacement during the 18th and 19th centuries of a significant number of people from traditional land tenancies in the Scottish Highlands, where they had practised small-scale agriculture. It resulted from enclosures of common lands and a change from farming to sheep raising, an agricultural revolution largely carried out by hereditary aristocratic landowners. A Highland Clearance has been defined as "an enforced simultaneous eviction of all families living in a given area such as an entire glen".

The clearances are particularly notorious as a result of the brutality of many evictions at short notice (year-by-year tenants had almost no protection under Scots law), and the abruptness of the change from the traditional clan system, in which reciprocal obligations between the population and their leaders were well-recognized. The cumulative effect of the Clearances devastated the cultural landscape of Scotland in a way that did not happen in other areas of Britain; the effect of the Clearances was to destroy much of the Gaelic culture.

The Clearances resulted in significant emigration of Highlanders to the sea coast, the Scottish Lowlands, and further afield to North America and Australasia. In the early 21st century, more descendants of Highlanders are found in these diaspora destinations than in Scotland.

The Clearances were a complex series of events occurring over a period of more than a hundred years.

The enclosures in rural England in the British Agricultural Revolution started much earlier, during the Tudor period. Similar developments in Scotland have lately been called the Lowland Clearances by historians such as Tom Devine. But in the Highlands, the impact on a Goidelic (Scottish Gaelic)-speaking semi-feudal culture, which had included the fulfilment of obligations of a chief to his clan, led to vocal campaigning against the actions. There has been a lingering bitterness among the descendants of those forced to emigrate or to remain in crofting townships on very small areas of poor farming land.

Changes in clan leadership
From the late 16th century, laws required clan leaders to appear in Edinburgh regularly to provide bonds for the conduct of anyone in their territory. This created a tendency among chiefs to identify as landlords, rather than leaders of men. The lesser clan-gentry increasingly took up droving, taking cattle along the old unpaved drove roads to sell in the Lowlands. This brought wealth and land ownership within the clan, though the Highlands continued to be overpopulated and poor. The landowners considered the crofters to be virtually free labour, and forced them to work long hours in activities such as harvesting and processing of kelp, an activity that reached its peak in the West Highlands between 1750 and 1815.

Repression of Jacobitism
The Jacobite Risings (1648-1746) brought repeated government efforts to curb those clans who supported James VII of Scotland and II of England and James Francis Edward Stuart and Charles Edward Stuart. The government of the day responded with repression after the 1746 Battle of Culloden, the last major attempt by the Stuarts to reclaim the throne.

The 1746 Act of Proscription, incorporating the Dress Act, required all swords to be surrendered to the government; it prohibited the traditional wearing of clan tartans and kilts. The Tenures Abolition Act 1660 ended the feudal bond of military service by crofters to their chiefs, and the Heritable Jurisdictions Act removed the virtually sovereign power which the chiefs held over their clans. The government's enforcement of the prohibitions varied and often related to the degree of a clan's support during the rebellion. But, overall these actions led to the destruction of the traditional clan system and of the supportive social structures of small agricultural townships.

From about 1725, in the aftermath of the first Jacobite Rising, Highlanders had begun emigrating to the Americas in increasing numbers. Under the Disarming Act of 1746 and the Clan Act, the Crown made ineffectual attempts to subdue the Scottish Highlands, and eventually sent in troops. Government garrisons were built or extended in the Great Glen at Fort William, Kiliwhimin (later renamed Fort Augustus) and Fort George, Inverness, as well as barracks at Ruthven, Bernera and Inversnaid, linked to the south by the "Wade roads" (constructed for Major-General George Wade). These had the effect of limiting organisational travel and choking off news and further isolated the clans. But, social conditions remained unsettled for the whole decade.

What became known as the Clearances were regarded by the landlords as necessary improvements to make agriculture viable. They are thought to have been begun by Admiral John Ross of Balnagowan Castle in 1762. MacLeod of MacLeod (the chief of MacLeod) began experimental work on Skye in 1732. Chiefs hired Lowland, or sometimes English, factors with expertise in more profitable sheep farming. They "encouraged", sometimes forcibly, the population to move off land judged suitable for raising sheep.

To landlords, "improvement" and "clearance" did not necessarily mean depopulation. At least until the 1820s, when there were steep falls in the price of kelp, landlords wanted to create pools of cheap or virtually free labour, supplied by families subsisting in new crofting townships. Having the crofters collect and process kelp yielded profits to the landlords, and they petitioned successfully for legislation designed to stop emigration, leading to the Passenger Vessels Act 1803. Attitudes changed during the 1820s and, for many landlords, the Great Potato Famine, which began in 1846, became another reason to encourage or force emigration and depopulation.

Before the beginning of the Clearances, there were examples of clan chiefs responding to these emerging problems before Culloden.

If there was a clash within the [ Jacobites and Hanoverians who fought at Culloden ] between a supposedly backward-looking Highland society and a 'progressive', capitalist Lowland economy, it was not a clear-cut one. Cameron of Lochiel, who fought for Charles, was as much a representative of a new capitalist attitude to Highland estate management as was the house of Argyll, ever the mainstay of support for the Hanoverian regime.

Clan land had become the private property of individual landlords. Nevertheless, many of those landlords also struggled against harsh economic realities. "Much of the drama and tragedy of the Highlands is told in the negotiations between financially racked landlords and their creditors, agents and trustees... The best of intentions were never enough amid the more populous and improvement-driven world of the mid-century Highlands."

The government gave financial aid for roads and bridges to assist the new sheep-based agriculture and trade.

Year of the Sheep

Another wave of mass emigration came in 1792, known to Gaelic-speaking Highlanders as the Bliadhna nan Caorach ("Year of the Sheep"). Landlords had been clearing land to establish sheep farming. In 1792 tenant farmers from Strathrusdale led a protest by driving more than 6,000 sheep off the land surrounding Ardross. This action, commonly referred to as the "Ross-shire Sheep Riot", was dealt with at the highest levels in the government; the Home Secretary Henry Dundas became involved. He had the Black Watch mobilised; it halted the drive and brought the ringleaders to trial. They were found guilty, but later escaped custody and disappeared.

The people were relocated to poor crofts. Others were sent to small farms in coastal areas, where farming could not sustain the population, and they were expected to take up fishing as a new trade. In the village of Badbea in Caithness, the weather conditions were so harsh that, while the women worked, they had to tether their livestock and their children to rocks or posts to prevent them being blown over the cliffs. Other crofters were transported directly to emigration ships, bound for North America or Australia.

From the Reformation, practising Roman Catholicism was illegal as was the ownership of any property by a Roman Catholic, which was identified with Jacobitism, and unacceptable in higher society. The number of adherents of Catholicism is difficult to estimate but it was a definite minority of the Scottish population, though a majority in some parts of the Western Highlands. In 1755 it was estimated that there were some 16,500 communicants, mainly in the north and west. In 1764, "the total Catholic population in Scotland would have been about 33,000 or 2.6% of the total population. Of these 23,000 were in the Highlands". Another estimate for 1764 is of 13,166 Catholics in the Highlands, perhaps a quarter of whom had emigrated by 1790.

Dawson and Farber note that 'although the landlords did not target people for ethnic or religious reasons, the effect of the Clearances was to destroy much of the Gaelic culture, which was dispersed along with the people that fled. and Protestants were the majority both of the Highland population generally and of those Cleared.[citation needed] Nevertheless, anti-Catholic sentiment (along with famine, poverty and rising rents) was a contributory factor in some Clearances.

Second phase of the Clearances

Ormaig was once the principal settlement on the Isle of Ulva near Mull. It had been inhabited since prehistoric times, until it was cleared by Francis William Clark in the mid 19th century.
It was only in the early 19th century that the second, more brutal phase of the Clearances began; this was well before the visit by George IV in 1822, when Lowlanders set aside their previous distrust and hatred of the Highlanders and identified with them as national symbols.

Most notorious are the examples of landlords trying to exploit changing economic circumstances to their financial advantage by clearing uneconomical tenants from their land, making room for more profitable uses such as sheep, deer forests or tourism. Two of the best documented such clearances are those from the land of the Duchess of Sutherland carried out by her factor Patrick Sellar, and the Glencalvie clearances which were witnessed and documented by a London Times reporter.

In 1807 Elizabeth Gordon, 19th Countess of Sutherland, touring her inheritance with her husband Lord Stafford (later Duke of Sutherland), wrote that "he is seized as much as I am with the rage of improvements, and we both turn our attention with the greatest of energy to turnips". As well as turning land over to sheep farming, Stafford planned to invest in creating a coal-pit, salt pans, brick and tile works and herring fisheries. That year his agents began the evictions, and 90 families were forced to leave their crops in the ground and move their cattle, furniture and timbers to the land they were offered 20 miles (32 km) away on the coast, living in the open until they had built themselves new houses. This plan has been described as a "typical example... of social engineering which met neither the hopes of the benefactors nor the needs of the beneficiaries, but produced social disaster.

The Sutherlands' first Commissioner, William Young, arrived in 1809, and soon engaged Patrick Sellar as his factor, who pressed ahead with the process while acquiring sheep farming estates for himself. The Sutherlands were responsible for brutal clearances between 1811 and 1820. Sellar threw people out in person if they showed any reluctance to go, and burned down their crofts to make sure they never came back. Evictions of 2,000 families in one day were not uncommon. Many starved and froze to death where their homes had once been. The Duchess of Sutherland, on seeing the starving tenants on her husband's estate, remarked in a letter to a friend in England, "Scotch people are of happier constitution and do not fatten like the larger breed of animals."

Tenants were generally treated according to due process of law, being served with notices of eviction and given time (typically three months) to vacate. However, many were reluctant to leave, did not obey the eviction notices, and were evicted with force. The methods used were sometimes harsh and brutal, even by the standards of the early 19th-century. Donald McLeod, a Sutherland crofter, wrote about the events he witnessed: "The consternation and confusion were extreme. Little or no time was given for the removal of persons or property; the people striving to remove the sick and the helpless before the fire should reach them; next, struggling to save the most valuable of their effects. The cries of the women and children, the roaring of the affrighted cattle, hunted at the same time by the yelling dogs of the shepherds amid the smoke and fire, altogether presented a scene that completely baffles description — it required to be seen to be believed.

"A dense cloud of smoke enveloped the whole country by day, and even extended far out to sea. At night an awfully grand but terrific scene presented itself — all the houses in an extensive district in flames at once. I myself ascended a height about eleven o'clock in the evening, and counted two hundred and fifty blazing houses, many of the owners of which I personally knew, but whose present condition — whether in or out of the flames — I could not tell. The conflagration lasted six days, till the whole of the dwellings were reduced to ashes or smoking ruins. During one of these days a boat actually lost her way in the dense smoke as she approached the shore, but at night was enabled to reach a landing-place by the lurid light of the flames.

Accounts like those of McLeod and General David Stewart of Garth brought widespread condemnation. Two old people evicted at Sellar's orders were too ill to go far. He left them exposed to the chill northern air and they died. He was acquitted on a charge of manslaughter, but the Duchess wrote: "The more I hear and see of Sellar the more I am convinced that he is not to be trusted more than he is at present. He is so exceedingly greedy and harsh with the people, there are very heavy complaints against him from Strathnaver." In due course Sellar was dismissed from his post.

Elsewhere, the flamboyant Alexander Ranaldson MacDonell of Glengarry portrayed himself as the last genuine specimen of the true Highland chief while his tenants (almost all Catholic) were subjected to a relentless process of eviction. He abandoned his disbanded regiment; its Catholic chaplain, (later Bishop) Alexander Macdonell led the men and their families to settle in Glengarry County, eastern Ontario, Canada. The area was a major destination for Highland emigrants in the 18th century and early 19th century, and Gaelic was the native tongue of the settlement. In respect for their ancestors' Scottish culture, the county hosts the annual Glengarry Highland Games, one of the biggest Highland Games gatherings of its kind outside Scotland.

The Clearances were widely blamed at the time upon the English, though it has been pointed out that the English (and lowland Scots) factors and agents involved were only carrying out the instructions of the hereditary Highland chiefs who owned the land. Reluctance on the part of the evicted tribespeople to blame the chief, who was an object of veneration to them, has been suggested as a cause.

For all of you pre-tribulationist and those who think they will get a second chance please read these scriptures!
Leigh Fuller
John Accomando. THE FACTS.
Regarding the "days of Noah" (as well as the days of Lot), the Lord was clearly describing those events in a posttrib context. The Lord outlines Matthew 24 chronologically, from "the beginning of sorrows" (verse 8), to the "abomination of desolation" (verse 15), to the "Great Tribulation" (verse 21), to His posttrib return (verses 29-31).

Everything after that is the Lord describing His second coming with parables, as well as comparisons to the flood, and Sodom.

Matthew 24:38-39: "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."

Luke 17:29- "But the SAME DAY that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them ALL."

There is no question that the Lord was describing instantaneous destruction of the wicked (on the same "day") when He comes like a "thief".

What most don't realize is that the Lord is still telling us to "watch" for His coming like a "thief" even after the 6th vial:

Revelation 16:15- "Behold, I come as a THIEF. Blessed is he that WATCHETH, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame."

Which is the same vial that the armies are gathering to Armageddon:

Revelation 16:14- "For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, [which] go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty."

Furthermore, Paul was clear that it doesn't come upon the righteous like a thief (1 Thess 5:2-4). The "wrath" we're "not appointed to" (1 Thess 5:9) is the posttrib "day of the Lord" (Matt. 24:29; Acts 2:20).

The Lord never described coming before the trib. Neither did He ever describe anyone other than His angels returning with Him from Heaven at His second coming:

Matthew 16:27- "For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his ANGELS; and then he shall reward every man according to his works."

Matthew 25:31- "When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the HOLY ANGELS with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:"

Mark 8:38- "Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the HOLY ANGELS."

Luke 9:26- "For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father's, and of the HOLY ANGELS."

No bride emerging out of Heaven at the Lord's second coming.

Paul reiterated this, in the ONLY set of verses in which he SPECIFICALLY describes who returns with the Lord from Heaven:

2 Thessalonians 1:7-8: "And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from HEAVEN with his mighty ANGELS, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:"

Lastly, the wedding announcement isn't until mere moments before the Lord's postrib return (Rev. 19:7-10) saying that "the marriage of the Lamb is come" (second aortist active indicative). It's about to happen. Wedding announcements come BEFORE the wedding (in EVERY culture).

To recap:

1)The Lord never described coming before the trib.

2)Matt. 24:42-44 was given in a posttrib context. The Lord is still telling us to "watch" for His coming like a "thief" even after the 6th vial, which is immediately prior to His posttrib return.

3)The wedding announcement isn't until immediately prior to the Lord's posttrib return.

4)The Lord never described coming back from Heaven at His second coming with anyone other than His angels. Paul was clear that we "meet Him in the air" AFTER He emerges out of Heaven (1 Thess 4:17). It's from the sky that we come "with" Him.

Those are the facts. Now decide whether what you've been believing is true or not.

"Lo, He Comes With Clouds Descending" is one of my favorite advent hymns. This version is arranged by John Rutter and sung by the Cambridge Singers. The hymn, first published in 1752, was composed by Henry Thomas Smart with original words by John Cennick. John and Charles Wesley altered the text to the version we hear today.

Here are the words to all the verses:

Lo, He Comes With Clouds Descending

Lo! he comes, with clouds descending,
Once for favored sinners slain;
Thousand thousand saints attending
Swell the triumph of his train:
Alleluia! Alleluia!
God appears on earth to reign.

Ev'ry eye shall now behold him,
Robed in dreadful majesty;
Those who set at naught and sold him,
Pierced, and nailed him to the tree,
Deeply wailing, deeply wailing,
Shall the true Messiah see.

Ev'ry island, sea, and mountain,
Heav'n and earth, shall flee away;
All who hate him must, confounded,
Hear the trump proclaim the day;
Come to judgment! Come to judgment!
Come to judgment, come away!

Now Redemption, long expected,
See in solemn pomp appear!
All his saints, by man rejected,
Now shall meet him in the air:
Alleluia! Alleluia!
See the day of God appear!

Yea, Amen! let all adore thee,
High on thine eternal throne;
Saviour, take the pow'r and glory,
Claim the kingdom for thine own:
O come quickly, O come quickly:
Alleluia! come, Lord, come.

OK!!.. I watched this movie myself. and i see these things all the time!. that movie had NOTHING to do with being independent or being without a man or ANYTHING like that! even in the end it didnt say she took back up the throne. she could have been just an awesome woman with ice powers. Its a Disney movie! leave it as such damn! if i had to overthink this like everyone else is it taught males and females alike how to get out of there feelings. i could say more but watch the movie. shes all in her feelings and a bit selfish. but that's if i wanted to overthink the movie. i thought it was great. If i had little girls and they wanted to see that movie everyday i wouldn't care because i like the graphics and the music ensemble was very much on point! 5 star no lie! fun or the whole family!

Song of Songs 2:15 Catch the foxes for us, the little foxes that destroy the vineyards, our vineyards that are in bloom." Bloom Jesus bloom . Jesus is Lord Zechariah 8:12
Verse Concepts
'For there will be peace for the seed: the vine will yield its fruit, the land will yield its produce and the heavens will give their dew; and I will cause the remnant of this people to inherit all these things. Psalms 85: Show us your unfailing love, Lord,
and grant us your salvation.
8 I will listen to what God the Lord says;
he promises peace to his people, his faithful servants—
but let them not turn to folly.
9 Surely his salvation is near those who fear him,
that his glory may dwell in our land.
10 Love and faithfulness meet together;
righteousness and peace kiss each other.
11 Faithfulness springs forth from the earth,
and righteousness looks down from heaven.
12 The Lord will indeed give what is good,
and our land will yield its harvest.
13 Righteousness goes before him
and prepares the way for his steps. Isaiah 9:6-7New King James Version (NKJV)

6 For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
7 Of the increase of His government and peace
There will be no end,
Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom,
To order it and establish it with judgment and justice
From that time forward, even forever.
The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this. Let us watch the infant Grow :) Jesus is Lord peace

We’re flesh beings, but we don’t have to be ruled by it. It’s OK to notice beauty. That’s normal. You have two eyes, and if you see a good-looking person, how can you not notice that? Seeing beauty and admiring it is one thing, but letting your eyes linger on somebody other than your spouse and entertaining impure thoughts…well, that’s another ballgame! It’s not OK to lust––especially when it’s not over the beauty of your own spouse!

As is typical of the arrogance of the liberal socialist elitists, they perceive themselves as being much smarter than we commoners. It is
their destiny to rule over us as we are simply too stupid to handle our
own affairs, let alone those of the nation.
Johnson says he wants to encourage people who are “in fact” not
“removal priorities” and “have not been for years,” people who are “just
simply not going to be deported.”
The only reason why it is a “fact” that these people won’t be
deported is as a direct result of the criminal activity of Johnson and
his comrades, in direction violation of their job responsibilities,
immigration law, the Constitution, their oath to uphold the
Constitution, and in dereliction of their duty.
The supposed justification of the passage of a number of years
implies the existence of some supposed statute of limitations on
border-crashing. There is none.
Their status as not being removal priorities is the result of an
arbitrary political decision made by the leftists and imposed on the
people of America, against their wishes, for entirely political reasons.
He then lists some of the bullet points from the official but yet
unpublished “Jeh Johnson Approved List of False Justifications For
Violating The Constitution, the Law and Your Oath of Office,” citing:

They’ve been here for years
We don’t have the resources
They’ve become integrated members of society
If they’re not removal priorities, i.e. they’re not criminals
(except for the immigration crime and document fraud that he chooses to
ignore)
Johnson then makes a statement so brazen as to sound as if it came
from Hussein Obama himself, claiming it’s a simple matter of what he
wants. It’s so dictatorial in fact that it could be an indication that
he may himself seek to run for the seat on the throne in 2016. He says
simply, “I want them, I want to know who they are, I want them to come
out of the shadows.” His wants now apparently supersede federal law.
He then makes a false claim that “so, we’re offering people, consistent with our legal authority, the opportunity to come out of the shadows, submit to a background check and be held accountable.”
If they were actually being held accountable, they’d be on a bus back
to Tijuana, so that claim is as laughable as the criminal Johnson being
the one who determines whether his fellow lawbreakers are held
accountable. Nobody in the federal government faces justice and he is
proof of that reality.
As for their actions being consistent with their legal authority,
there is no legal authority for what they are doing other than that held
by the legislative branch. What they are doing is an illegal criminal
power grab. No amount of fabrication-filled feel-good speeches to
supporters or pocket-lining special interests will change the truth.http://www.rickwells.us/amnesty-salesman-jeh-johnson.../

Today is December 20, 2014 Winter Solstice
Just eleven days left in this year
2014 never to return
So be it
Without a backward glance

There is a spot in my kitchen with no boundaries
In my modern gray & white condo
With the open floor plan
With two of three
Stainless steel appliances

That if you sit just right in the corner
At the table that
I pushed in the corner
Even though
It is not centered under the
Retro chandelier

I can see the sun rise
There they are
My landmarks
Two arching industrial lampposts
My two really tall palm trees
The Del Taco
The direction arrow beneath the Antique Mall Sign

Of course
There are clouds
The light so pink
A little yellow
Water colored
Beckoning from the dark
No sun visible yet
But I know She is coming
So I wait

Not really wanting to be late for work
Not wanting to miss anything
Not wanting to rush

Last night
I had a large pumpkin left from my Harvest Halloween display
It looked a bit old
Past its prime
I didn’t really want to throw her away

I hacked and chopped and busted it open
Dark green seeds nestled in pumpkin slime
Already sprouted with roots
Ripe and and busting forth with new promise in that dark place

I scooped out the seeds mush and left them on the counter
I scraped the insides of the broken pieces gently with a spoon
Till all that was left
Was bare flesh
I slipped the four chunks in the oven
To bake and roast till soft and golden
Sweet
Only three hundred and fifty degrees and imagined
Soup and pumpkin bread
Not from a can
And maybe something new
A recipe
I would find on the Internet

I went upstairs
Went to sleep….

At first… wakeful moment even before the light
Peeing in the dark sitting on the beloved raised throne
The smell of roasted pumpkin
Cremated
Into the ashes
For some strange reason
I giggled
I got biblical from dust to dust
From ashes to ashes

I ran slowly down the stairs and gave my pumpkin the proper burial
Just in time to take my seat and see the sun rise

What would you do?
Today
If you knew you just had ten days left…

On the shortest day of the whole year just past
With the longest night

Watch the sun rise
Make a list
Make love
