BIBLE STUDY: The Olivet Prophecy (Part Three) - The Day Of The LORD: Terrible, Awesome, And Fearful!

When the Bible talks about the "Day" of the Lord, it refers not only to the 24 hour period when Christ returns; but it also gives us insight into the year of God’s preparation for His Son’s return to this earth, and of the seven trumpets of God's punishment that will precede and culminate, on the Day of Jesus’ Second Coming! God is going to intervene in world affairs again, and this time in the most powerful way we have ever seen; after having left this world and us - to our own ways, to our own devices, and to our own forms of government - for almost 6,000 years now! Jesus Christ and the Apostle John, among others, took the time to warn us (in detail) of this soon coming “Day of The LORD”. Have YOU taken heed of these warnings? Are YOU Ready for the Coming of the Son of Man? Let’s open up our Bibles today and find out!

Instructions: One Nation Under God Ministries (www.onug.us) publishes and distributes weekly Bible Studies, worldwide – free of charge, to anyone who requests them, in both printed and electronic formats. Our Studies are intended to be a simple and fun way to learn the Scriptures, and are very easy to follow! We adhere to Jesus Christ’s Biblical instructions to teach and feed the flock of God portions of meat in due season, on weekly Sabbaths, and on the seven annual Holy Days throughout each calendar year (Luke 12:42 / Isaiah 28:9-10 / Matthew 13:52). Using both the Old and New Testaments, our Bible Studies are designed to present a premise, make a statement, or ask a question – followed by one or more Scriptural references. Just look up and read from your Bible the Scriptures listed. Comments following questions elaborate on the Scriptures you just read. Pray always before beginning any study of God’s Word, asking God to open both your eyes and your mind to His Truth; then Prove everything you read, is in fact the Truth, by comparing it to The Word of God (1 Thessalonians 5:21 / 2 Timothy 3:15-17). Then use the Biblical System of Checks and Balances, and SEE if both Jesus Christ, and the First Century Church of God Apostles – also Did, Said, and Taught these SAME THINGS (Galatians 1:1-12, 5:25 / 1 Peter 2:21, 25 / 1 John 2:3-6)! That’s all there is to it! Our Bible Studies are based on the King James Version, unless otherwise stated. We will be praying for your eyes to “see” (Matthew 13:11-17); and we are always available to answer any of your questions! Be Blessed, in Jesus’ Name! - One Nation Under God Ministries (www.onug.us).

For the last two weeks, we studied Scriptures proving that the Olivet Prophecy of Jesus (Matthew 24:1-51, 25:1-46, 26:1-2) was intended more for the members of God’s True Church living in these last days, than for those living in the time of Christ’s earthly ministry. We began to compare Scriptures from Matthew 24 / Mark 13 / and in Luke 21, to those in Revelation about the end times; and we began to form a prophetic timeline of events that follow the progression of the Seven Seals, the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, the Seven Trumpets, the Three Woes, the Seven Bowls or Vials, and Three Flying Angels: These are The Judgment Of God (Judgment: Scripturally defined as, being able to Understand and Live According To The Word of God) through either Blessings or Cursing (1 Peter 4:17-19 / Ezekiel 14:22-23 / Revelation 20:11-15, 21:3-8)!!! A sequential overview and timeline chart, both made from a Scriptural progression, are included at the end of this Bible Study. Please use them to glean even an ever clearer understanding of the order and sequence of end-time events.

Let us begin our Study of God’s Word today, recapping that the Main Theme of the Olivet Prophecy and The Book of Revelation is to PREPARE Jesus Christ’s Flock to survive the coming “Day of The LORD”; and to make ourselves ready, NOW, so that we will become just like Jesus Christ is, when He comes (Revelation 1:10-19 / 1 John 3:1-3)!!!

If you missed either of our last two Studies, we invite you to go back and catch up on what you missed at www.onug.us

BIBLE STUDY: The Olivet Prophecy (Part One)

BIBLE STUDY: The Olivet Prophecy (Part Two)

Jesus Returns!!!

The Good News, or The Gospel of The Coming Kingdom of God to this earth, which Jesus Christ, and all the Prophets of God preached throughout history; is only Good News IF YOU ARE RIGHT WITH GOD - BEFORE CHRIST RETURNS!!! www.onug.us

Question: According to Jesus Christ’s own Words, what will be the attitude and the spirit of most people upon the earth at His Second Coming (Luke 21:25-27)? Why will Distress, Perplexity, and such Fear that men’s hearts will literally be failing them, or as we say today, “they will be scared to death!” be the prevalent conditions in the world (Roman 1:18-32)? How will this contrast with the attitude of The True Church of God, and those who have dedicated their lives to following in the footsteps of Jesus Christ (Luke 21:27-28)? What is the difference in FOCUS that the Apostle Paul said would exist between the Church of God, and the rest of the people in the world (2 Corinthians 4:1-6, 10-14)? God’s people are not relying only on what they can see around them, they rely and trust on the UNSEEN (2 Corinthians 4:18)! www.onug.us

God’s People will also be “troubled and perplexed” at some of the things that will happen before the Return of Christ; but they WILL NOT be in despair, nor will they be in distress (2 Corinthians 4:7-8)!!! Why does the church act so much differently than the world around them (2 Corinthians 4:9, 15-17)? What did Paul mean by “our light affliction” (verse 17) is “but for a moment”, which “worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory” (Romans 8:18-23)? The LORD’S Day is the final day, of the year which proceeded it (the Seven Trumpets); in which God Himself will chasten, punish, and force a rebellious earth to return to and submit to His Authority, after six millennia astray (2 Peter 3:7-9)! The LORD’s Day is also the time when our Father Rewards His Saints (those who have been called by Him to preach this Gospel message for the last 6,000 years) with Eternal Life and Authority over much of His Kingdom; which will then be forever imposed, in full force, upon all the earth (Daniel 7:23-27)!!!

Question: How does God protect His Saints, while they are still in the flesh, from Satan, from the Three and a half years of Great Tribulation, and from The Seven Last Trumpets (Revelation 12:13-14)? How is this different from how God will protect His Saints from the Seven Bowls or Vials He pours out on mankind at Christ’s Return (1 John 3:2 / Job 19:26 / Psalm 17:15 / Daniel 12:1-3 / Matthew 5:8 / Luke 17:30, 20:36 / John 1:12, 11:52, 10:16, 17:24 / Romans 8:16, 19 / 1 Corinthians 13:12 / 2 Corinthians 3:18 / Colossians 3:4 / 2 Peter 1:4 / 1 John 2:28)? How does God then protect our children still in the flesh – that they may survive the Seven Last Plagues; those who were with us in the Place of Safety during the Tribulation, but were not yet Baptized, and who will not be transformed into Spiritual Kings and Priests at Christ’s Coming (Daniel 4:3, 34, 7:27 / Luke 1:33 / Psalm 91:1-2,4, 7-12)? The unchanging God’s Promises, which sustained us during the three and a half years of Great Tribulation, will also sustain and protect our children during the nine days of the Seven Bowls, which will be poured out between The Feast of Trumpets and The Day of Atonement! God intends for His Saint’s biological children to survive to the end of this age, and for THEM to repopulate and RULE this earth as human governments UNDER their parents – who will then be Glorified Saints of The Most High God (Revelation 2:25-29)! Now that is a TREMENDOUS PROMISE (Acts 2:39-41)!!! Our children will become Baptized members of the Body of Christ, in the flesh, in The World Tomorrow! Not only will our children be blessed in the flesh, but God will use them, because of what they are learning and doing today; as human world rulers during the Thousand Year Millennial Rule of Christ, and during The 100 years of the White Throne Judgment!

Question: What is the extra Special Blessing that God has in store for our children on the new earth, when God the Father returns (Revelation 21:24)? To round out this question and the answer Scripturally, we must first understand that Saints who are promoted to King / Priest status at the Return of Christ are further elevated to Pillars of The Temple status, when God the Father returns to dwell on the new earth (Revelation 21:1-3, 3:12-13); also those Saints who were martyred during the Tribulation, and did not escape to the Place of Safety, also become King/Priests and are also promoted to Pillar status at the Father’s return (Revelation 7:9, 13-17)! Do you see how we earn our rewards (Revelation 22:12)? Because we were faithful in a few things BEFORE Christ returns, we shall be given authority over much in the World Tomorrow (Luke 19:17, 16:10)! Because we will rule righteously during the 1,000 year Millennium, Jesus will allow us to judge the demons who failed in this same mission (1 Corinthians 6:3-4 / Revelation 20:10). An angel is sent to cast Satan and his demons into the bottomless pit for 1,000 years at the beginning of the Millennium, because at this point, God’s kids have only just become Saints – we haven’t ruled over anything yet (Revelation 20:1-3)! But after the thousand years, when Satan and the demons are again loosed upon the earth; God sends His Saints who have now proven themselves, to do the job of banishing all the demons to the lake of fire - forever!!! www.onug.us

After another hundred years of ruling as God’s Saints during The White Throne Judgment, God promotes the Saints to Pillars in His Temple! The earth is now new, and 100 percent spirit; there is no need for any human kings. The human rulers during the thousand year reign of Christ were our children; now because they too were faithful in the jobs given to them by Christ, under us; they now become the Spiritual Kings upon a new spiritual earth, populated by Hundreds of Billions of spirit sons of God (Matthew 5:19)! As we shall be Kings and Priests for 1,100 years, so shall our children rule in the flesh during that same time! When we are promoted to Pillars, our children take our places, and become spiritual Kings upon the new earth for all time! Read again with me the extra Special Blessing that God has in store for our children, on the new earth, after the Father Returns (Revelation 21:24)! It adds a WHOLE NEW DEPTH to the Promise spoken of in Acts 2:39-41! Praise God!!!

Remember, the Seven Bowls or Vials are only poured out AFTER the Return of Christ, when the Saints are resurrected (Feast of Trumpets) to immortal Spiritual Bodies; then they are poured out for nine days, until the Battle of Armageddon (which occurs on the Day of Atonement). God’s Saints will be impervious to the effects of the Seven Last Plaques poured upon the earth because they will at that time be just like Jesus! Our kids will still be in the flesh, but they will be Blessed and Protected by The Most High!!!

Most people know very little, if anything, about the "Day of the Lord." Yet it is the focal point of all prophecy! God’s Saints should be different (Colossians 1:9-29)! We should Study to be experts on the Day on which Jesus Christ will crown us with Crowns of Righteousness (2 Timothy 4:8 / Hebrews 11:13, 39-40)! And during the last two Sabbaths, like today; we did and are studying exactly that! www.onug.us

Where Did It ALL Start?

You should know that the Seven Seals began at the Resurrection, with the White Horse (False Religion to hide the Truth of Christ). Jesus was resurrected from the dead on Sabbath, before sunset or before the first day of the week could begin (or sun day night / evening first, then morning are a Biblical day. Genesis 1:5); not on Sunday morning as the Catholic Church would later claim – and as the Protestants would later follow. Soldiers were paid money to lie and deceive people about a Risen Savior; Jesus’ Disciples did not steal His Body while the grave watch slept! Jesus sent His Disciples into all the world, to teach all nations to observe ALL the things Jesus Commanded His Disciples to do – until He returns at the end of this world (Matthew 28:1-20)! When a Seal begins, or is opened; it does not stop until Jesus Christ returns to stop it! As Seals are opened, they only gets worse as time goes on, until they become “Apocalyptic” in the last days (Remember Jesus’ Words in Matthew 24:4-8 / Also Hebrews 10:1 / Colossians 2:14-17)! Just as God’s Sabbath foreshadows His 1,000 year reign; so the seals, once opened, picture apocalyptic times to come, preceding Christ’s Return!!!

The Fifth Seal (or the Great Tribulation): cannot start until the Sacrifices stop! Since the Sacrifices on the Temple Mount have not yet even started, and God’s Church has not been taken to a Place of Safety – which must happen BEFORE the full scale martyrdom of the Saints can begin; we should be able to discern where we are presently, in the prophetic timeline Christ came to give us (Matthew 24:14-22)! www.onug.us

The Sixth Seal (or Heavenly Signs. See Revelation 6:12-14): This is the beginning of the Seven Trumpets! This happens after the Great Tribulation starts, but about a year before it ends. Contrast the Black,  sackcloth-like sun, and the Blood Moon of the Sixth Seal with the much different Heavenly Signs at the Return of Christ (Matthew 24:29-30). When Jesus Returns at the start of the Seventh Trumpet, we see a Darkened Sun (but one still visible), and a Moon that gives no light (you cannot see it!). The Signs of Matthew 24:29-30 are AT THE END OF THE TRIBULATION, NOT IN THE MIDDLE OF IT, as Revelation 6:12-14 state. The BLOOD MOON of Revelation 6:12-14 WARNS US OF GOD’S PUNISHMENT (The Seven Trumpets TO COME); when we see the darkened sun and NO MOON of Matthew 24:29-30, it means the Second Coming of Christ is imminent (The First Resurrection will happen at the Seventh or Last Trumpet, The Seven Last Plagues will be poured out, and the world’s armies will march on to Armageddon, to be there for the Day of Atonement)!

Lastly, Joel 2:30-31 is a warning sign for those who will come up in the Second Resurrection, after they are nearing the end of their 100 year second lifespans (Isaiah 65:20). Joel 2:30-31 speaks of PILLARS OF SMOKE, BLOOD, AND FIRE, along with another black sun, and another BLOOD MOON. This is A WARNING OF GOD’S FINAL PUNISHMENT IN THE LAKE OF FIRE, for all those who came up in the Second Resurrection and refuse to repent (Joel 2:28-29 only happens after the 1,000 year rule of Christ on earth, and ONLY AFTER the Second Resurrection! Joel 2:32 speaks to the Promises God The Father makes to us, when He comes to earth in Revelation 21:1-8). Joel 2:30-31 is meant to be a warning for people like the rich man of Luke 16:26, who will be separated from God’s children, for refusing to take advantage of his 100 year second chance (or The White Throne Judgment of Revelation 20:11-15).

Part of our Mission, given to us by Jesus Christ, in the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20 / Mark 16:15-20), is to warn the whole world about the Heavenly Signs (the Sixth Seal), which God intends to use to warn a rebellious mankind, that God’s Wrath is about to begin!!! The True Church of God must do this before they go to a Place of Safety and the Great Tribulation begins! The Awesome events that will take place during the Sixth Seal, and those that follow it; are described in more than 30 different prophecies in both the Old and New Testaments. Those left to endure this time upon the earth, who do not go to the Place of Safety, will remember they heard about these things first, before they happened, from the members of the Body of Christ (Matthew 24:14 / Mark 13:10)!

The Two Blood Moons and a Black Moon:                 www.onug.us

  1. Sixth Seal: A great earthquake, a Black Sun, Blood Moon, SOME stars (but not all) fall from heaven (because you still need some to be there and to be darkened during the yet future Fourth Trumpet)! All the mountains and islands are moved out of their places (Revelation 6:12-17). This happens about two and a half years into the Great Tribulation, and one year before Jesus returns!!! This is a FINAL WARNING that the last chance to escape the Wrath of God will soon pass away!!! This Blood Moon will NOT affect God’s people, as by this time they will all have been already martyred, or safely in the Secret Place of God (Place of Safety)!
  2. The Coming of Christ: happens about a year after the Sixth Seal is opened, and at the end of the Great Tribulation. It happens at The Seventh Trumpet, when the sun is Darkened or dimmed (but still visible), and you CANNOT SEE THE MOON (Black moon), THE REST OF THE STARS FALL FROM HEAVEN, there is lightning, voices, thunder, another earth quake (not a great one), and Great Hail too! Then the world gets to SEE a Returning Christ coming in the clouds with Power and Great Glory (Revelation 11:18-19 / Mathew 24:29-35)!!!
  3. A New Heaven and A New Earth (The Second “Day of The LORD”): 1,000 Years after the return of Christ (Revelation 20:5), and 100 years after the Second Resurrection (Isaiah 65:20); God’s sends us WARNING SIGNS that the earth will soon melt (2 Peter 3:10-11). This is the Blood Moon of Joel 2:30-31, and is a FINAL WARNING, that the last chance for those still in the flesh to accept Eternal Life will soon pass from them (Revelation 20:11-15)!!!     www.onug.us

Many confuse Revelation 6:12-17 (the Sixth Seal), Matthew 24:29-35 (The Second Coming of Christ), and Joel 2:30-31 (The Sentencing to the Lake of Fire, The Melting of this world, and The Coming of The FATHER), as one and the same event. They are NOT, and cannot be, if The Gospel timeline given to us by Jesus Christ is to be True!!! They are ALL Heavenly Signs; but they are also three separate events, at three separate times in future world history! And now YOU know how to PROVE and to teach that so!!!

Question: How Does Isaiah 13:6-13 describe the Day of The Lord? Now that you can recognize the Heavenly Signs from Scriptural clues; is this The Sixth Seal, The Arrival of Jesus Christ, or the Return of God the Father? Who is God punishing here (Isaiah 13:11. Let’s also read: Obadiah 1:15-16 / Zephaniah 1:14-18 / Revelation 6:15-17 / Isaiah 2:6-21)? The Day of The Lord is really going to be a Terrible, Awesome, and Fearful time upon this earth! We need to be ready for it, and we need to warn others about it too!                                           www.onug.us

                      

I also feel compelled here to tell you that I have repented before My God, of my childhood impressions of those whom God has led previously, to warn this world; as YOU and I MUST ALSO warn this world, of the Coming Day of The Lord! When I was a child walking the streets of New York City with my Dad one summer; I remember seeing a lady standing on a street corner with a Billboard style sign, hanging down her front and back sides. The sign read, in Big, Bold letters: “Repent, The END of The World Is NEAR!”  I thought she was a crazy lady; and I thought that because my Dad never taught me the things which God has revealed to us here, through His Word! Now, I’m not going to walk the streets with a sign like that, anytime soon; but I WILL if God leads me to do it! I have been called, along with others, to warn the world in a slightly different way! But I will never again belittle, or make fun of people who are called to warn the world in a different way! God’s Message is His Message, and He gives many different people, many different ways to herald His Warnings! Amen! Now, it is time for us to ponder and PRAY about How God wants you and I to use the knowledge we learned in this Study, and in what way!!! Let’s not bury our talent in a napkin!!! www.onug.us

Question: If you are preaching Christ’s Gospel Message correctly, eventually, YOU will be asked by others, “Why will God punish mankind so severely?” What will YOUR answer be; and will it be Scripturally Correct (Revelation 11:18 – the last few words / Zephaniah 1:17 / Isaiah 24:5)?

“God is going to destroy those who ___________________________,

Because they have ________________________________________,

And because they have transgressed __________________________,

Changed the _____________________________________________,

And broken the ________________________________________!!!!!!

Now that is an answer you will only hear given by a True Worshipper of God! www.onug.us

Unlike a popular radio evangelist who has been spending the last few months telling his listeners, “God is NOT mad at you! Don’t listen to people who tell you He is”; This Bible Study has shown us VERY CLEARLY from Scripture, that Jesus Christ - The LORD God of both The Old and The New Testaments, will be VERY ANGRY at the grievous sins of mankind when He returns (Romans 1:18, 32 / Galatians 6:7 / Ezekiel 18:20-31 / Zephaniah 2:3 / Revelation 11:18)!!! Like a child playing with matches in His Father’s house, after being told NOT to touch them; we humans are starting to set the world on fire! And God says His House (or this world) would burn down TO THE GROUND, and kill everyone in it – IF our Father did not come back, at the LAST MOMENT, and STOP US!!! And stop us, God will; by sending Jesus Christ back to “spank us HARD” (Matthew 24:21-22)!!!

It is going to take one heck of a spanking to get this world to come back to its senses, and Jesus Christ is just the Son of Man to do it!!! As any loving parent punishes his disobedient child who will not listen to gentle admonition, Christ will have to punish this world to wake it up; after which He will usher in World Peace, Abundant Prosperity, Happiness and Joy for ALL of mankind!!! May those of us reading this Study - Heed, Repent, Obey, and Live!!! www.onug.us

We hope you will join us next week, as we continue to investigate the most eventful year that will ever happen in this world’s history! We will also discover how Jesus says He will conclude God The Father’s Wrath upon mankind, look at the Testimony of the Two Witnesses, and investigate what the Abomination of Desolation really was; which was spoken of by Daniel the Prophet, and mentioned by Jesus Christ as a yet future event, and as a time for those in Judea to flee into the mountains! Stay Tuned!

We are honored that you joined us today, in the Study of God’s Word! We hope that you will join us again next week, and that you will continue to share what you have learned here, with others – at home, at work, and in your neighborhood (Matthew 28:18-20 / Mark 16:15-20)! May our Great God, Bless you and keep you, until then – in Jesus’ Name!!!

The sad state of affairs today is that the vast majority of Americans are Bible illiterates (Hosea 4:6). They simply have never read the book which they profess to regard as the “Word of God”. If we are to change this, we must begin using the Bible as our primary source of education, to learn about God and His teachings (Matthew 6:33).

If you have never faithfully kept God’s seventh day Sabbath holy or God’s Holy Days, the way Jesus Christ did – in the flesh, and in the fellowship of other followers of the Son of Man (Hebrews 10:25); we invite you to obediently enter into God’s rest today, and to keep the Feasts of the LORD (Hebrews 4:1-11 / Leviticus 23:1-44)! Contact us to find out where we fellowship and worship God, in your area, on His Sabbath Days (Exodus 31:12-18). We would love to hear from you and help get you started!

Join us on-line each Sabbath and Holy Day at www.onug.us where you can download our Bible Studies, or join us on facebook to listen in to our live webinar each week.

”But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you. My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand. I and my Father are one” (John 10:26-30).

Christians must learn to read the Bible, interpret the scriptures according to Biblical principles (Isaiah 28:10, 13), and begin to apply the precepts they learn in their walk with God. Individual study is essential; coupled with fellowship times of group study, worship, and discussions of personal insights and observations.

We strive, each Saturday, to foster an open and welcoming atmosphere where Spirit led confirmation, clarification, questions, and correction can be made in the fellowship of other students of God’s Word.

One Nation Under God (www.onug.us) is working to unify the body of Christ in the worship of God the Father, in the way Jesus showed us to - in Spirit and in Truth! We strive to promote rediscovery of American History, and renew in current generations the Vision and the Covenant of our Founding Fathers.

Timeline Study Guide:

The Seven Seals, Four Horsemen, Seven Trumpets, Three Woes, Seven Bowls or Vials, and The Three Flying Angels: These are The Judgment Of God (Judgment defined Scripturally meaning: Understanding and Living According To The Word of God) through either Blessings or Cursing (Ezekiel 14:22)!!!

This four-part "beginning of sorrows", or the progression of disasters, is also pictured by the first four of Seven Seals, or The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse (Revelation 6:1-8).

The Seven Seals and The Four Horsemen:

  1. False Religion: The First Seal – A White Horse (a bow, a crown, to conquer and / or to convert many). Read: Matthew 24:4-5 / Revelation 6:1-2.
  2. War: The Second Seal – A Red Horse (power to take peace from the earth, a great sword to murder many). Read Matthew 24:6-8 / Revelation 6:3-4.
  3. Famine: The Third Seal – A Black Horse (disparity and irregularity in famines: food scarcity and rationing in one area, while other foods are abundantly found elsewhere). Read Matthew 24:7-8 / Revelation 6:5-6.
  4. Pestilence and Death: The Forth Seal – A Pale Horse (“Hell” or hades, meaning the grave follows him; disease and sickness become rampant and lethal; wild animals attack and kill humans). God gives the first four seals Power to kill one-fourth of the earth’s entire population! Read Matthew 24:7-8 / Revelation 6:7-8.

 

The Four Horsemen are already here! They have not yet intensified to the level where they will bring about the Apocalypse spoken of at “the end of days”, but that is coming! When God opens a Seal, it begins, then intensifies; until it reaches its fruition at the Return of Christ! False religions (meaning the many flavors of false Christianity) are here! They have been counterfeiting the Gospel of Christ for over 2,000 years now, and they are growing worse! Jesus says the false church will grow so powerful that it will eventually threaten God’s true church with martyrdom at a level the world has not yet seen! Wars are still being fought since the Prince of Peace

One Nation Under God Ministries (www.onug.us)

Timeline Study Guide (continued):

 

(Isaiah 9:6) and the King of Salem (Genesis 14:8) was born in the flesh, to do away with them for good; yet they are getting worse!

Together these Horsemen will destroy one-fourth of the earth population (2-3 Billion people)! Then and only then, will we be in the Apocalypse spoken of by Jesus Christ! It will be evident, you won’t be able to miss it! Then you will know we are about to enter into the Great Tribulation!

 

The Sealing of God’s People Happens Before The

Seventh Seal is Opened (Revelation 7:1-17):

God does not begin to pour out His Wrath on the earth, in the form of the Seven Trumpets, which begin at the Seventh Seal (1/3 of trees and all grass burn, 1/3 of all sea life dies, 1/3 of all ships are destroyed, bitter waters kill many, sun and moon darkened, chemical and biological weapons unleashed, warfare kills 1/3 of world’s population), until God seals His Servants in their foreheads to protect them! God sanctifies or sets apart as holy, 144,000 of all the Tribes of Israel (Job 1:6-12)! We must preserve this sanctification for ourselves and for our families at all costs (Job 1:5)!

 

Question: Why are only so few Saints saved alive, in a world of billions of people, with potentially millions of Saints currently living (Revelation 7:9, 13-17)? Most of God’s True Church will be martyred by this soon coming time in history! Knowing this now, does Jesus’ Warning to you take on extra meaning (Luke 21:36)? Read Ephesians 1:13-14 / Ezekiel 9:4-11. If you do not have The Sign, Seal, or Mark of God on your forehead; and if you have not been praying always that you might be accounted worthy to escape the Wrath of the Lamb – there is only one other option left! Do you know what is it; and will it work out as planned (Revelation 6:15-17)?

 

  1. The Martyrdom of the Saints: The Fifth Seal (The True Church of God, which preaches the Word of God, and has the Testimony of Jesus’ Gospel Message; these are all those from throughout time, who will come up in the first Resurrection in white robes, but have not been delivered by God, or gone to the place of safety; these must be killed by Satan’s government up until the time of and during the Great Tribulation). The Fifth Seal begins in earnest at the start of the Great Tribulation, and ends three and a half years later, with the deaths of God’s Two Witnesses (the last two saints to die); three and a half days before Jesus Returns! Read Matthew 24:9, 21-22 / Luke21:23-24 / Revelation 6:9-11.

 

  1. A Great Earthquake, A Black Sun, and A Blood Moon - The Sixth Seal (Stars of heaven fall, mountains and islands disappear, men try to hide in the earth from God and the Wrath of Jesus). Read Matthew 24:29-30 / Joel 2:30-31 / Revelation 6:12-17.

 

  1. Silence in Heaven for Half an Hour – The Seventh Seal (A darkened sun, and a moon that gives no light ends the Seventh Seal at the Seventh Trumpet; and contrasts with the Sixth Seal’s initial heavenly indicators: A Black Sun, Blood Moon, and falling stars! Seven Angels assemble with the Seven Trumpets, another angel with the golden censer adds much incense to the prayers of the Saints – then filling it with fire from the Altar, hurls it to the earth; then there are voices, thunder, lightning, and another earthquakes while the seven angels prepare themselves to sound). Read Joel 2:1, Revelation 6:15-17, 11:18, 14:19, 15:1, 16:1.

 

Remember, God protects His Church from the Seven Trumpets, by Sealing His Saints in a Place of Safety!

The Seven Trumpets (Revelation 8:1-6):

The First Trumpet (Hail and Fire mingled with Blood are cast upon the earth. One Third of the trees are burnt up and all green grass)!!! Read Revelation 8:7.

The Second Trumpet (A great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea. One Third of the all the seas become blood, one third of all sea life is killed, one third of the world’s ships are also destroyed)!!! Read Revelation 8:8-9.

The Third Trumpet (A great star, called Wormwood, burning like a lamp falls from heaven causing one third of all rivers and all fresh water sources to become bitter, and many who drink this water will die)!!! Read Revelation 10-11.

The Fourth Trumpet (One Third of the sun, the moon, and the stars are darkened, so that the daytime is dark for four hours of daylight each day, and the night sky shines no light from any stars or the moon, for four hours each night. An angel flies through the sky, announcing the three Woes or Trumpets to come)!!! Read Revelation 8:12.

The Fifth Trumpet – The First Woe (Satan is cast out of heaven a second time with his demons, and allowed to release some of the demons who have been bound in Tartarus or the bottomless pit since the angelic rebellion; the sun and air are darkened by the smoke (demons?) that comes out of the pit, locusts (helicopters with chemical or biological weapons?) come out of the smoke (influenced by the demons?) – not to eat grass or trees (as normal locusts would) – but to hurt humans who do not keep the Holy Days of God, and to sting men like a scorpion stings – to inflict such excruciating pain upon men for five months, that they will seek death, but will not find it)!!! Read Revelation 9:1-12, 17:8-14.

The Sixth Trumpet – The Second Woe (Four terrible and mighty demons which are “bound” in the Euphrates river since the angelic rebellion, are released for a year, and a month, and a day, and an hour; they influence an army of 200 million men to go about and kill one third of the population left on earth by fire, smoke, and brimstone which issued out of their mouths (missiles, artillery, bombs?); and those survivors, not killed by these plagues from God, repented not of their works. God’s Two Witnesses will complete their ministry during the Great Tribulation, and lie dead in the city streets for three and a half days. Their resurrection, back to physical flesh and blood life (Revelation 11:11), and another great earthquake which levels a tenth of the city, and kills 7,000 people that happens within the same hour that the Two witnesses come back to life; this will be enough to scare the remnant of the city into Glorifying God)!!! Read Revelation 9:13-21.

The Seven Thunders (A Mighty Angel of God comes down from Heaven, clothed with a cloud, a rainbow upon his head, his face shining like the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire. He has a little book, open in his hand; his right foot upon the sea and his left foot upon the earth… then the Seven Thunders uttered their voices! But God tells John NOT to write those things he was told by the seven thunders. Instead John is to preach The Gospel before many people, nations, tongues, and kings!). Read Revelation 10:1-7.

The Sixth Trumpet – The Second Woe (continued) Read Revelation 10:5-11, 11:1-14.

The Seventh Trumpet – The Third Woe (The kingdoms of this world become the Kingdoms of our LORD, and of His Christ; and He shall reign for ever and ever! This can only happen after Satan and his demons are banished in the bottomless pit on the Day of Atonement and the Beast and False Prophet are thrown into the lake of fire. The First Resurrection must occur at the beginning of the Seventh or last Trumpet (as the Saints ALL rise together! Hebrews 11:39-40 / I Thessalonians 4:13-18 / 1 Corinthians 15:51-58). The Two Witnesses are given physical life at the end of the Sixth Trumpet, for an hour (just like many who were raised back to physical life in the Bible; this is not the first resurrection!); then the Seventh Trumpet or Third Woe follows quickly (Revelation 10:5-11, 11:1-19).

The Progression of the Seventh Trumpet:

The First Resurrection happens (Revelation 5:9-10, 10:7, 14:1-5, 20:4 & 6). The dead in Christ rise, and are Immortal, preparing to reign, while the Last Seven Plagues (bowls or vials poured out)! Our children, who are not yet Baptized, but who survived along with us during the three and a half years in the Place of Safety, will continue to be protected by God, as flesh and blood people, for 10 more days; until the Battle of Armageddon happens, and Satan and his demons are thrown into the Bottomless Pit for the next 1,000 years!

There are voices in heaven, thunder, lightning, another earthquake, and Great Hail!!!

The Seven Bowls or Vials of God’s Wrath Begin (Revelation 16:1-21):

  1. Noisome and grievous sore upon those who have the mark or sign of the beast and worship his image.
  2. Sea becomes as the blood of a dead man killing all sea life.
  3. All rivers and fountains become blood
  4. Sun scorches men with fire and great heat so they blaspheme God and repent not
  5. Darkness and pain poured upon the seat of the beast and his kingdom making them chew their tongues
  6. Euphrates dries up to prepare the way of the kings of the east to invade. Three frog-like demons come out from Satan, the beast, and the false prophet and gather the world’s armies at the valley of Armageddon, to the battle of that great day of God (occurs on the Day of Atonement).
  7. A Great Voice from God’s Throne: “It is Done!”, voices in heaven, thunder, lightning, and the Greatest of ALL earthquakes EVER! The City is divided into three parts, cities of all nations fall, every island sinks, every mountain is leveled; an exceedingly great plague of Great Hail, each the weight of a talent [Ancient Israel adopted the Babylonian talent (30.3 kilograms or 67 lbs.); but later revised the mass into the Heavy Common Talent which was used by New Testament times (58.9 kilograms or 130 lbs)]!!! This is the talent the Apostle John would know!

The armies of the earth, 200 million, come to make war with Jesus Christ and His Saints (Revelation 11:18 / Zechariah 14:1-5, 12-15), on the Holy Day of Atonement!!!

Satan and his demons are put into the bottomless pit for a thousand years (Revelation 20:1-3)!!!

The Three Angels fly with their three messages (Revelation 14:6-12):

  1. “Fear God, and give Glory to Him; for the hour of His Judgment is come: and worship Him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.”
  2. “Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.”
  3. “If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, the same shall drink of the wine of the Wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of His indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb, and the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.”
