The Church Is Silent.......

The Church Is Silent

Does anyone really think that this world and civilization as we know it, is not now on a collision course with self-destruction?
It is because of the weight of SIN that mankind cannot continue on without God's soon intervention in his affairs.

This is not the time to be unaware or unconcerned concerning these things! But that is exactly where most churches reside, unconcerned, unaware and uninvolved in prophetic events!

Jesus is our Bridegroom. The Church is His Bride. How can any bride not want to look for her bridegroom? The Rapture is the blessed hope of all born again believers. And as true believers we should be professing this to everyone we know. Because time is shorter than most Christians realize, we should be motivated by the spirit of Christ to bring as many brothers and sisters into this knowledge as possible. The church remains silent!

We can scoff all we want to or deny that the Rapture will happen any time soon, but it WILL HAPPEN whether we like it or not; and we will find ourselves very surprised to stand before Him face to face and have Him ask us why we didn't bother to look for Him when the signs were all around us. So the sobering truth is, if we are not looking for Him, we are not ready to meet him, either. It's time to change the way we look at prophecy, folks!

A person does not have to be an astute student of prophecy to realize that many things are occurring today that have prophetic significance. Scripture reveals some graphic signs which suggest that the rapture of the church could be very near. And that should encourage us, for the belief in the imminent coming of the Lord and the rapture of the church is a blessed, happy expectation (Titus 2:13).

And by the way, no one who refutes the pre-trib stance uses scripture to do it..because they can't. It's biblical doctrine.

If ever there was a generation of Christians who could momentarily expect this blessed hope, it is our generation. These facts are not simply interesting for study, they are facts which should challenge the way we live and be the energizing dynamic in our lives. Sadly this is not so for most Christians, most ministers or most churches.

We are in the prelude stage to rapid fulfillment of the prophesied Tribulation Time and very near the rapture. Every Christian should be struck by the speed with which the events the prophets predicted millennia ago are taking place precisely as they predicted. Christ described the signs of His coming as birth pangs so that means as we move forward these things will only become worse.

Jesus said in Matthew 24:34, after explaining all the things that will take place in the end times

"Truly I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place."

Clearly we are that generation!

Israel was reborn in 1948, and using the bible's definition of a lifespan as being 70 years (Is 23:15; Ps 90:10) then we are the generation spoken about by Jesus, that would be seeing these things.

Verse 18 in the first bible reference below says to comfort one another with these words. Jesus PROMISED to come and get us, to bring us where He is so we can be with Him (John 14:1-2). God cannot lie (Titus 1:2). I believe that Jesus will rature His bride, the church very soon.

1st Thessalonians 4:16-18, 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: 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. Wherefore comfort one another with these words."

14 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.  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 14:1-3

"Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 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. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality"(1 Cor 15:51-53).

Because you have kept the word of My perseverance, I also will keep you from the hour of testing, that hour which is about to come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth. (Revelation 3:10)

His wrath will be poured out in the earth, but not on His people.

Romans 8:22-23, "For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body."

"Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen" -Luke 21:36

Revelation 4:1, which says, "come up hither," as a prophetic reference to the rapture of the Church, leaving Revelation chapters 1 through 3 as a description of the Church Age. After the shout to "come up hither," the Church is not mentioned in Scripture at all. The attention of Scripture switches from the Church to the Jews living in Israel.

We do not and cannot know the exact hour, but we WILL know the season. The re-birth of Israel in 1948 signals that we are in the last days.

The rapture will be the BEST thing that could happen to any soul, and to be left behind in a world controlled by the antichrist will be the worst thing that could happen to you apart from spending eternity in hell. And yet the church is silent, completely silent about this blessed hope!

Do not deceive yourselves. If any one of you thinks he is wise by the standards of this age, he should become a "fool" so that he may become wise. (1 Cor 3:18)

The level of evil and Satan worship in the world.

Jesus says that His coming "will be just like in the days of Noah." What the Lord is saying here is, "I'm going to come back in a time when the earth is in as bad a shape as it was in the days of Noah." In other words, world society will go full circle and return to being as evil as it was in those days.

Genesis 6 describes the days of Noah when mankind's "minds were focused upon evil." In the days of Noah, immorality and violence were everywhere. The Apostle Paul spells it out in detail (2 Timothy 3:1-4), "Realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God..." Truly that is the condition of society today. 
And yet the church is silent!

Satanism in the form of witchcraft, New Age, and the occult were prophesied to become mainstream, and so they have. Paul writes in 1 Timothy 4:1 that "the Spirit explicitly says that in the latter times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons."

Never before throughout history have so many people showed their allegiance to Satan as we see today. Hundreds of photos of celebrities are seen all over the internet of celebrities and famous people flashing Satan sign, called the "El Diablo" hand sign. Thousands of world leaders are members of the demonic bohemian Grove cult, who meet annually every July to worship a 40-foot owl, sacrificing a human being in a mock (allegedly mock) sacrifice. These are the world leaders who baby-sit the big red button. ACDC concerts show tens-of-thousands of fans all praising the Beast with horned hats, bragging about their choice to journey the Highway to Hell. If I didn't believe the Bible for the Bible's sake, then I would believe because of all the Satanists and occultists who believe and attack it.

You may not believe in God; but a whole lot of people certainly believe in Satan and are showing their allegiance to him in their music, movies, and corporate symbols. Umpteen Rock bands have blatantly shown their praises for the Devil. The Rolling Stones in 1968 released Our Satanic Majesties' Request, featuring the song, Sympathy for the Devil, a tribute to the Church of Satan and founder Anton LaVey. In 1971 Paul McCartney released RAM, a commonly worshipped symbol representing Satan, which The Rolling Stones placed on their album cover. Madonna worships Satan in her song, Beautiful Stranger. In her Australian concert tour she bragged that she's going to Hell and didn't care. Well she will when she's there and damned forever.

Technological advancements.

Daniel 12:4 said there would be an explosion of knowledge and an increase in the rapidity of transportation at the end of this age. The Bible describes scenarios that depend on mass communication, satellite television, the Internet, computer technology and medical advances that have become a reality only in our day and time.
 
It is nothing less than mind-boggling what technological advances have been achieved over the past 100-years. Do you realize that 150-years ago there were no cars, no jets, no electronic communications. The basic telegraph system wasn't even invented until 1861. Before that they road the Pony Express to deliver messages. We're talking just 150-years ago. Wow! Yet today everyone is walking around with cellphones and is surfing the worldwide internet. Truly these are the Last Days. The wickedness today is unimaginable compared to Sodom and Gomorrah. People are downloading pornography to their cellphones while sitting on the bus coming home from work. How much longer can God tolerate this level of wickedness, when even the most virtuous of Christian ladies and girls are being ogled by TSA sexual deviates in a Police State nation gone insane?

Police are zapping citizens left and right with bigger and longer-lasting body-tasers, even for the slightest of reasons. Cops are raising people's homes with a S.W.A.T. team for the smallest of complaints, shooting the family pet, and oppressing the public. Local and State police have trained to be thugs, to contend with a tired and fed up public that has been abused, over-taxed, lied to, cheated, and now molested by TSA at all the airports. American citizens have had it. This is all planned and the intent of the monsters behind the new World Order. They fully anticipate a public revolt, bringing in foreign troops to smash the resistance; and then out of chaos will arise order, i.e., NEW WORLD ORDER... a Global Godless Totalitarian Communist Police State.

Infamous Freemason, Albert Pike predicted World Wars I, II, and III with precise detail prior to his death in 1892. We are now entering WWIII. Afghanistan was invaded and conquered by United Nation's forces in 2001. Iraq was invaded and conquered by a United Nations collation in 2002 (the UN was created by The Council On Foreign Relation, which is the visible headquarters of the New World Order). Egypt has been taken over by a coup in 2011. Libya just got bombed to smithereens in 2011. Iran has been in the spotlight for several years now, sitting directly between Iraq and Israel. Jordan must also go. We are witnessing the beginning of World War III as predicted by Albert Pike, who foretold that Arab nations would be in conflict with Israel and the rest of the world would be drawn into the conflict. This is what the Bible prophesies. Prophecy is history written in advance. If the Lord doesn't return soon, I can't even imagine how evil, intrusive, and wicked this world is going to become. The government will be as god. No one will have any privacy nor rights. Everywhere people will be enslaved as cattle, microchipped with barcodes, and tracked by the Police State. It's already happening.
 
The New World Order is here. It is important to understand why God scattered mankind across the earth in Genesis 11:7-9 at Babel. God did this as a safeguard to protect humanity against the corruption that happened in Genesis 6. The wickedness that led to the flood of Genesis 6 and 7 was happening all over again in Genesis 11, so God put an end to it, segregating man for his own good. Satan is the god of this evil world (2nd Corinthians 4:4). What Satan couldn't achieve in Genesis 11 he is accomplishing today, within God's permissible will and timetable. The New World Order is in actuality the coming to fruition of the tower and city of Babel in Genesis 11:7-9, when mankind sought to unite together in rebellion against God, worshipping the god of this sinful world, Lucifer. Most people miss that fact in Genesis 11... they were also building a city, not just a tower at Babel.

The Pope, world leaders, celebrities, and famous people everywhere are all talking about the New World Order. The popular trend these days is to go along not only to get along, but also to become rich, famous, and have all the pleasures of this temporal sinful life. Judgment Day is coming (Hebrews 9:27). The world is becoming smaller and smaller every day. We are witnessing the formation of a one-world government, one-world religion, one-world currency, one-world economy, one-world, language (English). It's all happening before our very eyes.
 
The immoral condition of our generation. Never before throughout history have we seen such perversion and crookedness as we see today in the world. Over 200,000,000 people have been killed because of war over the past 200-years. Over one-million Iraqis are dead, based upon false witness and tyranny bloodshed. Sodom was a wicked place, but they didn't hang out a sign advertising... SIN CITY like Las Vegas does. God hates evil (Psalm 97:10). America will get what we deserve when foreign troops march on American soil and we reap what we have sown. We are losing our homes, land, jobs, and freedoms. This is what rebellion against God does. Americans allowed Hugh Hefner to bring Playboy to our nation in 1954. We kicked God, the Bible, and prayer out of our schools in 1963. No wonder abortion was legalized in 1973. Today, homosexual-marriages have already happened by the thousands, and they have adopted children... all a pilot program to usher in a whole new kind of immoral sleaze as never before seen in the world. Can you imagine... homosexuals getting publicly and legally married? It is now the law of our land, and the church is silent!

Who would have imagined a time when music would be sold and targeted at our youth, containing deliberate backward masking that leads kids to worship Satan!!! Katy Perry, Toby Keith, Rodney Atkins... all praise booze and drunkenness! It's sickening! It is tragic and makes any decent person want to vomit when they see two women kissing in public, or two men holding hands. This is the freakish and weird times in which we live. You haven't seen anything yet if the Lord tarries His return. The entire country is going to become massively homosexual, in our faces everywhere we turn. No Christian will be able to escape the wickedness, just as Lot's guests were being attacked by a mob of perverted homosexuals in Genesis 19:1-10.

Who would have envisioned a time when children would be taught that they came from stardust, slime, and monkeys. Evolution has no proof whatsoever. The University of Berkeley in California even has a website that trains public school teachers how to brainwash children that evolution is true and not a religion. What a bunch of liars! Evolution is a religion!!! It is mere belief. Yet those wicked liars teach the bogus theories of evolution as if it were a fact. 

Signs of Nature


As a result of all this turning away from God, God will increase the signs of Nature. Natural disasters of every type are increasing greatly in frequency and intensity like "birth pangs" are God's way of calling people to repent and return to a loving relationship with Him (Matthew 24:8). Jesus stated in Luke 21:11 that "there will be great earthquakes, and in various places plagues and famines; and there will be terrors and great signs from heaven."

The Lord is in charge of the earth and frankly, though we don't want to be deliberately messy, this is not our home. This earth will die and be remade. Nothing humans can do will prevent the earth's ultimate destruction. There is nothing we can do or should to to 'save our planet'.

Earth Day celebration, the Earth is God, let's stop and worship the Earth. It doesn't seem to be a problem for the government to tolerate that, I can't imagine what would happen if somebody decided to have a God day or a Jesus Christ day. Save the rain forests, save the whales, save the dolphins, save the oak trees. Earth Day is based upon a Pantheistic view and it was "let's stop the world and worship the earth." We'll all worship the earth. Worship anything and everything except Almighty God and Jesus Christ!

Signs Concerning Israel

The prophetic signs that relate to Israel, though, are the most important of all because the Jews are God's prophetic time clock. What this means is that the Scriptures often tie a prophesied future event with something that will happen directly to the Jews.

An example can be found in Matthew 24 where Jesus prophesied that the re-establishment of the nation of Israel would be an end time sign. Using the fig tree as a symbol of Israel, He prophesied that when the fig tree re-blossoms, the generation that sees that happen will be the one that will witness His return. Well, the fig tree re-blossomed on May 14, 1948 when the nation of Israel was re-established, making our generation the one that will witness the Lord's return.

Jesus gave a similar prophecy about the city of Jerusalem. In Luke 21:24 He prophesied that the Jews would be dispersed from Jerusalem and be led captive among the nations. He then said to watch for their return to Jerusalem because, when they return, it will mark the season of His return.

In fulfillment of this prophecy, the Jews were dispersed from Jerusalem in 70 AD, and they returned in June of 1967, marking this day and time as the season of the Lord's return (Luke 21; Zechariah 8:4-8).

There are other prophecies concerning Israel that mark the end times when Jesus will return. One is found in Isaiah 35 where we are told that the decimated and barren land of Israel will flourish once again. In fulfillment of this prophecy, early in the 20th Century the Jewish settlers began to reclaim the land. Today, Israel has become the breadbasket of the Middle East.

Zechariah 12 tells us that Israel will become a military powerhouse in the end times, and today, the tiny nation of Israel is considered by military experts to have the fourth most powerful military force in the world.

Another key prophetic sign related to Israel in the end times is the one whose fulfillment we are witnessing today — the focusing of world politics upon the nation of Israel (Zechariah 12:2-3). All the nations of the world, including the United States, are coming against Israel over the issue of who controls the city of Jerusalem.

Truly, Israel's return as a nation almost 1900 years later is a miracle, proof positive that the Bible is the Word of God and that the prophecies in it have come true in this generation.

So why is God giving us all these signs to let us know about Jesus' soon return?

Well, the key lies in why He is returning. Jesus is returning to deal with rebellion — sin — before setting up His Kingdom on earth. It is God's merciful and loving nature to let us know beforehand when He comes in justice and judgment to give us a chance to repent. 2 Peter 3:9 explains, "God does not wish that any should perish but that all should be brought to repentance."

God deals with sin in one of two ways — either in grace or in wrath. A person is under either the grace of God or the wrath of God. There is no third option. To be under the grace of God is a glorious thing. It means you have the promise that one day soon Jesus will appear and take you out of this world in an event called the "Rapture" before He deals wrathfully with rebellion (1 Thessalonians 4:17).

The Bible promises over and over that those who have accepted Jesus as Savior during this age will be delivered from God's wrath. Romans 5:9 says that "we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him." 1 Thessalonians 1:10 states that we are waiting "for His Son from heaven... who will deliver us from the wrath to come." The promise is repeated in 1 Thessalonians 5:9 — "God has not destined us for wrath, but for obtaining salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ."

But, if you're under God's wrath because you haven't ask for forgiveness of your sins and accepted Jesus as your Savior, you will stay behind and experience a wrath unlike anything you can even imagine. This will happen during what the Bible calls "The Tribulation" — seven years when the wrath of man, the wrath of Satan, and the wrath of God will be let loose upon this earth. For seven terrible and terrifying years the Earth will be devastated and billions of people will be annihilated before Jesus' Second Coming.

God is a God of love. Jesus says in John 3:16, "For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life." But, God is also a God of justice. The Bible says in John 3:36, "He who believes in the Son has eternal life; but he who does not obey the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him." It is God's very nature to love, but His love demands that evil be dealt with in justice.

The Bible clearly teaches that God never pours out His wrath without warning for He is a just and loving God who does not wish that any should perish (2 Peter 3:9). That is why He has provided so many signs to alert us to the fact that we are living on the threshold of the Tribulation and the soon return of Jesus Christ.

Decide

Where do you stand? Are you under God's wrath because you haven't accepted His free gift of salvation, or are you under God's grace because you have? Will you be one of those raptured before God's wrath, or will you suffer in it? Can you truly say that you are ready for Jesus' return?

You have a decision to make. If you haven't accepted Jesus as your Savior, then heed Mark 1:25."The time has come...the kingdom of God is near. Repent and believe the good news!" Believe in Jesus, God's Son, and have everlasting life.

If you have accepted Jesus as Savior, your sins have been forgiven and forgotten, and you can look forward with confidence to that glorious day when Jesus will appear in the heavens. Make sure in these last days that Jesus is also Lord of every area of your life, so that when He comes He will find you ready.

"Therefore keep watch because you do not know when the owner of the house will come back — whether in the evening, or at midnight, or when the rooster crows, or at dawn. If he comes suddenly, do not let him find you sleeping. What I say to you, I say to everyone: 'Watch!'" (Mark 13:35-37 NIV)

Christians need to GET REAL about what is currently happening on our planet. Although we can never know the exact day and hour, we certainly know we are in the season of His return by the things we see going on.

5 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.

2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.

3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.

4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.

5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.

6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.

7 For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.

8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.

9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

10 Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.

11 Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.

                                                                                                      1 Thessalonians 5:1-11
